Feed on

Dr. Prather says breastfeeding is "the gift that keeps on giving" and the #1 determination for a person's health throughout their life. In this episode, find out:

--The shocking lack of training and support our health care system offers for Moms when it comes to breastfeeding.

--That only 40% of all children in the world are breastfed. And how companies selling baby formula influenced this.

--Why the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control say that 800,000 fewer babies would die every year if they were breastfed instead of using formula.

--How breastfed babies have dramatically lower odds of suffering from Acute Ear Infections, Eczema, hospitalization for respiratory infections, Asthma, childhood obesity, Type II Diabetes, Childhood Leukemia, and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

--How your ability to fight off infection starts and ends with what you get from your Mom (and why your immune system is impacted by it for the rest of your life).

--The amazing feedback feature between the baby's saliva and the Mother that will actually shift the nutrition the child needs from the Mother to the baby.

--How a baby's future emotional and psychological health is strengthened through breastfeeding. Plus, how a baby's I.Q. is increased by breastfeeding.

--Why Homeopathy has no religious or spiritual connotations, but includes evidence-based medicines such as Nitroglycerin.

--The role of Quantum Physics as the basis of Homeopathy and why it works.

--How atheists are the ones suppressing scientific advancement and knowledge today by denying scientific evidence of God. And why Israel is seeing more scientific advances and new inventions than any other country.

--Why the Disease Care Model that is the basis of our health care system is NOT a Christian-based system. And why the philosophy of "modern medicine" is actually an ancient system based on pagan religion.

--The connection between the ancient Asclepius cult, modern humanism, and our health care system today. And the Abraham Flexner report (written by a passionate opponent of Christianity) in 1910 that forms the basis of our health care system.

--How the philosophy that you should ONLY use pharmaceuticals to heal is ludicrous. And why Dr. Prather advocates an 80%-20% balance between Structure-Function Care and Disease Care.

--The Asclepian philosophy that formed the American Medical Association to combat Homeopathic Medicine.

--Why Dr. Prather adheres to the health care philosophy known as the Physiologists, who were the ones who basically came up with all of our blood tests and lab tests.




Free Radicals travel through the body and damage the system. If you could control your Free Radicals, you'd look like you're 21 for the rest of your life. In this episode, we talk about:

--Why Dr. Prather compares Free Radical Pathology to a rusty gate or a cut apple turning brown.

--How Free Radicals have a strong correlation to both cardiovascular disease and cancer, the top two killers.

--The way Cancer treatments like Chemotherapy and Radiation can cause more Free Radical production in the body, which can lead to an increased likelihood for a recurrence of Cancer.

--The ways we get Free Radical damage in our body, including: sunburn, X-Rays, heavy metal toxicities, nutritional deficiencies, a toxic bowel, and even things that are good for us like exercise.

--How most skin problems like skin tags, moles, liver spots, and wrinkles are connected to Free Radicals. And how cataracts are 100% a Free Radical issue, along with eye floaters.

--Why Fibromyalgia and bodily aches and pains can go away once Free Radical levels are brought under control.

--The specialized electrical conduction test at The Prather Practice that checks on the nervous system and circulatory system to reveal the level of Free Radicals. And how the clumping of blood cells reveals Free Radicals.

--How Free Radical pathology can be prevented or reversed. And how the best anti-aging that you can possibly do is control your Free Radical pathology.

--Why exercise in moderation helps control Free Radicals, but heavy exercise such as marathons, triathlons, and CrossFit can produce Free Radical damage. And the importance for athletes to take antioxidants to prevent Free Radical damage.

--The reason that smoking produces more Free Radical pathology than anything else you could possibly do. And how pharmaceuticals are big Free Radical pathology producers in your body.



Structure-Function Health Care (as opposed to Disease Care) is a non-pharmaceutical and safe approach to health for pregnant Moms. In this episode, you'll learn:

--How Structure-Function Care can provide "amazing results" for childhood asthma by dealing with the underlying problem that causes the condition, such as parasitic infections.

--The reason why Dr. Prather says children having parasites, chicken pox, or measles can actually help STRENGTHEN a child's immune system and can help DECREASE autoimmune diseases like Multiple Sclerosis.



With the advancing of the years, we can actually turn back the clock according to Dr. Prather. In this episode, we talk about:

--The difference between chronological age and biological age, and how the two may not always line up. (And why, biologically,we should live to around 160.)

--Why the lungs are the best way to determine your biological age. Plus, how your kidneys, nervous system, and skin help determine biological age.

--The treatment Dr. Prather uses to take 20 years off of someone's biological age.

--Why stress is the leading reason people seek out Chiropractic care. And how Chiropractic reduces biological age by changing the nervous system.

--How you'd look 21 for the rest of your life if you are perfectly oxygenated. And how to improve your low oxygenation.

--How proper balancing of hormones (which most people do not have) can change the aging process. And why Dr. Prather says his office has more ways of accomplishing that than almost anyplace in the country.

--How 70% of depression issues are related to the endocrine system (which also impacts weight gain and certain types of cancers). And how 60% of all cancers are related to your diet.

--How free radicals cause aging (liver spots, macular degeneration, cataracts).



The Centers for Disease Control is alerting the public to the danger of antibiotic overuse and misuse. Dr. Prather has the answer with alternatives to antibiotics. In this episode, you'll learn:

--The recommended natural products that are available to combat viruses, such as Vitamin A for Measles and Echinacea to keep the Lymphatic System flowing.

--The two ways of going after infections: (1) Going after the infection itself with pharmaceuticals and (2) Building up the body to battle the infection with its own immune system. And why natural methods of Structure-Function Health Care should be the first line of defense before resorting to the pharmaceuticals.

--The side-effects of antibiotics such as a head-to-toe rash, diarrhea, fungal and yeast infections, difficulty breathing, facial swelling, watery or bloody stool, mouth sores, nerve damage and permanent neuropathy, and C. Diff. infection.

--The proper testing to do in advance to see which antibiotic will work (or if it will work) before it is given. And how only about 5% of all infections are even touched by an antibiotic.

--The approach The Prather Practice uses to combat C. Diff. infection by rebuilding the gut flora through short-chain fatty acids and bacterial spores. And why this method is more favored than fecal implant procedures that sre often only temporarily effective.

--Why Gold is "extremely effective" in getting MRSA under control when other methods failed.

--How children under the age of one-year have a 10 times greater chance of reactions than adults. And why Dr. Prather says you should ALWAYS try to find an alternative to antibiotics when treating children.

--Why Dr. Prather says it is "a crazy thing" to use antibiotics on ear infections, which do not work because the infection is almost always viral or swelling related to teething. And the best way of treating bacterial ear infections through short-wave Diathermy and natural products such as homeopathy and Vitamin A.

--The method Dr. Prather uses to help Moms open up the Eustachian Tubes for ears that are backed up. And how he trains Moms on what to look for in their child's ear.

--How if a child has six or more antibiotics before the age of five, they are six times more likely to have a learning disability.



The Centers for Disease Control is alerting the public to the danger of antibiotic overuse and misuse. Dr. Prather has the answer with alternatives to antibiotics. In this episode, find out:

--Why the World Health Organization says we are now in a "post-antibiotic age" and what that means for our health.

--How post-surgical infections are more deadly today because bacteria no longer respond to the antibiotics.

--The problem with physicians getting their education from pharmaceutical companies instead of taking their guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, and the Surgeon General.

--How good bacteria that we need are also killed by antibiotics along with the bad bacteria. And how this can set us up for more problems if we take too many antibiotics.

--Why antibiotics are really supposed to be used only for life-threatening infections one or two times during a person's lifetime. And the fear of those who discovered antibiotics about how they would be misused.

-That only 10% of upper-respiratory infections and sore throats should receive an an antibiotic because they are viral and antibiotics do not touch viruses. Yet antibiotics are the most common treatment for upper-respiratory infections.

--How GOLD is the strongest antibiotic known to mankind and does not produce antibiotic resistance. And how MRSA infections have been helped by gold when antibiotics failed.

--Why Dr. Prather says 89-90% of all antibiotic use is NOT NECESSARY. And the shocking amount of antibiotics given to livestock (and put into our food supply) every year.

--The recommendation of the Centers for Disease Control for patients to actually challenge whether an antibiotic is necessary when the doctor is writing the prescription.
