Empower Your Health During Covid and Always with Dr. Peter Borten

Episode Summary

Dr. Peter Borten has been helping people achieve whole health for 20 years. He has degrees in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Classical Five Element Acupuncture and is a certified Qigong instructor.  Peter has written hundreds of articles on all aspects of wellness and created online courses in nutrition and pain management. He taught Daoist philosophy and Five Element theory at Lewis and Clark College and has worked as a clinic supervisor at National University of Natural Medicine and Oregon College of Oriental Medicine.  I am so thrilled to be sharing our powerful conversation that works to break down fear, provides practical information including how to support your immunity regarding the Coronavirus and empower your longterm health in the process! We start with understanding what viruses are and how they differ from bacteria. We really get into the most important ways to support your body-mind-spirit in immunity health that come from you and cost no money.  We also talk in depth about specific supplementation with vitamins and nutrients.  More specifically, we talk about what can support us in keeping the symptoms of the Coronavirus mild to moderate in the event that we contract it, putting less of a burden on our hospitals, while increasing herd immunity to help weaken the virus.  In all of healthcare, education is the foundation and Peter absolutely delivers on that today. Y’all I believe this information is going to be very important for the next period of time. I know I say this every time, but please share this with your communities.  The positive impact of information like this can go a very long way in keeping our communities strong and empowered.
