Black Inventors, Inventions & Innovations
We were taught that George Washington Carver invented peanut butter, that's probably not true considering the fact that the Aztecs were eating it back in the 15th century. But did you know that brother Carver invented 300 or so uses for the peanut itself? He issued bulletins to farmers and housewives explaining how to use peanuts to make soap, face creams, axle grease, insecticides, glue, medicines and charcoal. He even made paper from peanuts.

In today’s segment, I’ll be joined by Drs. Janice Knebl and Meharvan Singh from the University of North Texas Health Science Center. We’ll be talking about how research has identified the potential for hormones like estrogen and progesterone as being important in maintaining a healthy brain. However, this topic is not without its controversy, so my guests will also be addressing factors that may predict whether hormones may or may not be good for the brain. In addition, we will also talk about what ongoing research is being done to ensure that doctors provide menopausal and post-menopausal women with as many viable options as possible to help maintain health and wellness as they age.

With passion and unwavering ambition, Sally Larsen finds the perfect balance of health and beauty with Sally B’s Skin Yummies, her handmade line of natural and organic skincare products and makeup. A firm believer that health and beauty are dependent upon one another, the self-confessed “product girl” began making her own good-for-your products in 2003 when she noticed a void in the organic skincare market. What began as a personal journey to replace her chemical-rich beauty products quickly turned into an in-demand hobby among her friends, motivating Sally to found Sally B’s Skin Yummies in 2005.
Launching Sally B’s Skin Yummies with just two products, her now famous Shea Butter Bar and Healing Hand Butter, Sally established Skin Yummies to share the positive benefits of a healthy beauty regime with the world and also stake her own personal claim in the organics industry, the “unofficial Larsen family business.” While she wasn’t exactly raising bees and harvesting her own honey like her father, she spent countless hours researching and testing organic and natural ingredients as alternatives to preservatives, chemical additives and harsh irritants often found in beauty products. As she learned, created and experimented, her initial small offering grew into a product line of over 30 must-have lotions, potions and other good-for-you creams.
In this interview we will explore the role of adrenaline as the underlying cause of many conditions believed to be incurable: ADHD, fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, weight gain, bipolar disorders, PTSD, IBS, addiction, and more.
We will discuss why people put out excessive amounts of this fight-or-flight hormone, even when they are not in danger and learn how to reduce levels of excess adrenaline simply by altering a person’s meal plan along with the proper use of natural progesterone cream.
Join us as we speak to Dr. Michael Platt, internationally known for his for his innovative approach to natural hormone replacement. His previous book, “The Miracle of Bio-identical Hormones,” is still the number one selling hormone book in a number of countries. In 2011, Dr. Platt voluntarily surrendered his license (not his medical degree) because he refused to change his approach to getting patients well naturally.
His latest book Adrenaline Dominance addresses how the standards of care enforced by medical boards prevent progress in medicine.
Millions of women are struggling with hormone imbalance, an epidemic that is disrupting countless lives during menopause and much earlier in life — a fact that is widely unrecognized. Join me this week as I chat with Dr. Alicia Stanton and she demystifies the subject of natural or bioidentical hormone therapy and debunks the myth that menopause is the primary trigger of midlife symptoms such as: constant fatigue, mood swings, weight gain, forgetfulness, hot flashes, sleep difficulties. You will find out the chief lifestyle triggers of hormonal havoc that are ignored in health care today; why six key hormones — insulin, cortisol, thyroid, estrogen, progesterone and testosterone — must be in balance; how to restore harmony by making practical lifestyle changes that cost little or nothing; and, when necessary, how to get medical help. While aimed mainly at women, this interview will also discuss men and their journey through andropause.
Dr. Alicia Stanton is one of the country’s leading experts on women’s health and hormone therapy. Dr. Stanton is Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology, a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, a Diplomate of the Board of Anti-Aging Medicine and an Advanced Fellow in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine. She has a special interest in hormone balance and its effects on menopausal symptoms, weight gain, PMS, energy levels and stress. Her experience also translates well to help manage her male patients and their hormonal issues, including low testosterone, adrenal fatigue and low libido. Her practice is dedicated to anti-aging medicine and maintaining optimum health through nutrition, fitness and bioidentical hormone therapy. Dr. Stanton is the author of Hormone Harmony: How to Balance Insulin, Cortisol, Thyroid, Estrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone to Live Your Best Life

From an expert in integrative medicine, a thirty-day plan to help women lose weight and look and feel years younger.
As they grow older, many women struggle to lose weight. Unlike many men their age, they may also suffer from sleep problems, osteoporosis, and depression. Many women may even feel like they age less slowly and gracefully than their male counterparts.
Dr. Tami Meraglia knows that the magic word here is testosterone. While there is ample discussion in the medical community about the effects of estrogen loss, few people are aware of the importance of sufficient testosterone levels in women. A healthy dosage helps women slim down, improves their mood, lowers the risk of cardiac disease, increases energy and libido, prevents osteoporosis, enhances skin tone and texture, and may even prevent cognitive decline—yet more than 90 percent of women over age forty-five suffer from low testosterone levels. In The Hormone Secret, Dr. Tami offers an evidence-based thirty-day plan to restore healthy levels of testosterone and balance the relative levels of other hormones, based on lifestyle modifications such as supplements and nutritional adjustments. She also offers her Mediterranean Diet–based meal plan and low-impact exercise ideas that will immediately boost your energy.
With cutting-edge research and strong scientific evidence to support Dr. Tami’s thirty-day plan, The Hormone Secret gives you all the information you need to balance your hormones and improve your vitality for a strong and healthy life.
In this episode, we will discuss how your projesterone and adrenal glands are connected and what happens to our bodies at different stages of menopause when the production of projesterone decreases.
