The Role of Muscles in Our Health

We don't think about muscles a whole lot. The heart is the most important, but people don't think about the heart as an actual muscle!

Today's focus is on the role of muscles in our overall health.

Most muscular challenges are caused by fungi, parasites, and other viruses that act as the triggers of these diseases. It turns out there are hundreds of them.

This presents a challenging situation for doctors as well. There are too many factors to measure, and they may not get to the root of the problem. 

We start this episode with a story about Dr. Bens' son contracting COVID-19 at the gym through his glutes. We then discuss Muscular Dystrophy, the link between the COVID-19 vaccine and Guillain-Barre syndrome, high-dose vitamin C, and the best diet to prevent inflammation.
