The producers of Healthy Body, Healthy Mind are producing a series of one-hour health documentaries ready for your primetime schedule. They will come out one every other month throughout 2015.
In these special programs, physicians are interviewed who are working with their patients, and encouraging them to be more proactive in their overall health care while providing them with the tools and hope to have a healthier life!
Healthy bones and joints allow us to run, jump, play sports – even go for a walk. Our shoulders permit arm and hand movement. Our backs help support our entire body. And healthy feet allow mobility as we move from one place to another, on our own. But injury and disease can bring many of these functions to a halt. In Shoulders, Back, & Feet we will explore the areas of shoulder damage, cervical degenerative disc issues, and the debilitating affects that diabetes can have on our feet.
Shoulder damage can happen with age, or repetitive arm movement due to work or sporting activities. A disease called cervical dystonia can cause painful, involuntary muscle movement in the neck. Cervical degenerative disc disease can damage nerves in the neck area, resulting in tingling and weakness in the arms and shoulders. And type 2 diabetes can lead to issues of the feet called neuropathy. Untreated neuropathy can be the cause of debilitating foot ulcers that make mobility difficult and could lead to amputation in extreme cases.
All this and more in this very informative documentary.
Dr. Perlmutter’s Whole Life Plan
Welcome to Dr. Perlmutter’s Whole Life Plan.
Dr. Perlmutter puts his ideas into practice in the real world to show you that living your best life is about much more than what you put in your mouth. It expands upon the core advice in his previous programs and introduces exciting new information about the advantages of eating more fat and fiber, consuming fewer carbs and protein, evicting gluten forever, and catering to your intestinal flora.
Food is a central component of the program, but so are other key aspects to achieving the best results: the timing of when you eat, sleep, and exercise; knowing which supplements to take and which medications to potentially drop; reducing daily stress and even chemical exposures in your physical environment; nurturing relationships and your own self-care; addressing the challenges in life with grace and ease; routinely creating goals for your personal development; and finding time for the kinds of physical activities that power the brain while healing the body.
This beautiful series immerses the viewer in the nature of the northern extremities of Europe, beyond the Arctic Circle and into a land of ice and fire; from the Tundra and on to the Arctic Ocean. Wildest Arctic captures the awesome cinematic range of the Arctic region, from the crashes of vast glaciers, to the howls of the wildest wolves and the haunting remoteness of this true wilderness.
We find wolverines, lynx and leopards in the Taiga (Russian for “forest”); polar bears and whales in the Arctic Ocean; Arctic foxes and Atlantic puffins in Iceland; and follow the 2,000 mile migration of 500,000 caribou in the Tundra.
This is the arctic as you’ve never seen it before: surprisingly rich in wildlife and completely – beautifully – wild!
