MISSION STATEMENT: Taking responsibility for your HEALTH and WELLNESS is the most precious gift people can give themselves. “An Investment in your Health is a commitment to improving everything else in your life” Our health is continuously challenged by poor nutrition, environmental toxins, and stress, all root causes of illness and reduced longevity. DOCSPEAK’s mission is to inform people how NUTRITION and specific LIFE STYLE changes help them lead healthier lives. Through a cascade of epigenetic effects, WELLNESS results. DOCSPEAK’s recommendations, “ help you make intelligent choices for a better you.” After providing our listeners with a PREVENTATIVE WELLNESS DIET applicable to a variety of Food Predilections, we will be discussing a wide variety of preventative health topics, which impact, on personal HEALTH and WELLNESS. Our PROMISE is to start with scientifically proven facts relevant to the topic grounded in classical biology, accepted metabolic pathways, ancestral evolutionary principles, and Behavior and the Neurosciences. Using theses facts as litmus tests, we will then assess varying trends and new theories of diet, nutrition, longevity, exercise physiology, and behavioral life changes. We will make every effort to share the controversies, and in keeping with our stated Mission, bring to the listener UNBIASED AND PROFITLESS PREVENTATIVE LIFE WELLNESS PRINCIPLES. With Integrity and Respect; Dr. J. and Dr. J. The Journey Starts Here (Video) ABOUT YOUR HOSTS: JONATHAN SMITH, MD., MBA. “I am an Agent of Change.” The USA is facing an Epidemic of Obesity, Diabetes, and Cardio-vascular disease which, I believe, is killing its citizens, creating emotional turmoil in families, and financially bankrupting them, large and especially small businesses, and our nation. The processed groceries on supermarket shelves, and the fast foods we have easy access to, cause dramatic metabolic disturbances in humans, and ARE the root causes of these Epidemics. As a retired Anesthesiologist (Clinical Physiologist, Clinical Pharmacologist), after dedicating 40 years to treating illness, I have redirected my healing and caring passion towards promoting WELLNESS … “ it is far more fun and rewarding! “I am driven to making an impact on people’s lives by changing behaviors and setting an example, beginning first and foremost with the individual, and then moving to the workplace. I possess an Intimate, practical understanding of human physiology, pharmacology, and motivation. As well, from my studies in an MBA program, I acquired an ‘economics’ understanding of energy (fuel), supply and demand, and utilization and storage in the human ‘machine’. Collectively this allows one to assess the cost of disruption of the human being as a whole. JEFFREY A. WINFIELD, MD.PhD. My compassion and passion for patient healing initially arose from my traumatic introduction to medicine and surgery. At the age of 4 and a half, as an innocent bystander, I was engulfed in a ball of flaming anti-freeze, leaving me in a coma for a month, and sustaining 2nd and 3rd degree burns over 70% of my body and face. According to my mother, despite the predications of doctors back in 1955/6 that I would in all likely hood die, “ St. Anthony didn’t want that to happen.” By the age of sixteen I’d been through over 20 reconstructive plastic surgeries. I’m indebted to my plastic surgeon, Dr. Snider and Children’s Hospital in Oakland, California. These and subsequent experiences deeply imprinted within my soul, “what it feels like to be the patient.” A love of science lead me to purse degrees in Cellular and Organismal Biology, and a second degree in Physiological Psychology at UCSB. Neuroscience and “awake craniotomies” at the Montreal Neurologic Institute held me captivated, and I eventually completed a fellowship there. At Albert Einstein I received my MD. In General Medicine, and a PhD in Neuroscience and Neuro-Anatomy, followed by completing General Surgery and a Neurosurgery residencies at Johns Hopkins. For ten years I was in academics as Head of Pediatric NS and Neurosurgical Oncology, and another 15 in private practice specializing in minimally invasive spine surgery and implanting artificial discs. And although blessed with gifted technical skills, I was most proud of my demeanor, considered by my colleges as the antithesis of the arrogant and bombastic neurosurgeon’s persona; that of a truly caring physician with “ the bedside manner of a country family doc.”
