Episode #167: Dr. Gary Foresman

Description:  Elle Russ chats with Dr. Foresman about all things vaccines – the controversies, the dangers, and the benefits.  Dr. Foresman opened a private practice, he quickly became dissatisfied with the inability of established Western medical treatments to effectively treat many of his patients—many of which suffered from thyroid disorders. Determined to help his patients, he began investigating alternative therapies and has since expanded his training in many systems of healing—not just through Ayurveda, meditation, and stress management, but also using botanical, orthomolecular and functional medicine systems. His precise, scientific mind, combined with a holistic integrative perspective, makes him not only an exceptional diagnostician, but also a skilled practitioner who can therapeutically synthesize optimal healing modalities for each individual.

    This podcast was excellent. There needs to be more stars available for a review. Every mother, father, aunt, uncle, grandfather and grandmother should listen to this and pass it along to anyone with children or is going to have children. Actually adults need the info for themselves to keep informed about adult vaccines. Very well presented.

    First time commenter! Hoping that by submitting a comment I can see a discussion thread? Becuase I am VERY interested in any responses to Dr. Foresman’s opinions, and how this discussion was moderated by the podcast host.

    I was looking for the resources that were to be posted in the show notes for this podcast #167 and having trouble finding them. Maybe I’m not looking in the right place?

    I have been Grokking for about 2 years now. I’ve lost about 40 pounds, have more engergy, less pain, and am in great shape, similar to my last year of high school, which was over 20 years ago. This has been an incredible journey for my education and understanding of health that has greatly influenced my kids and wife. I really appreciate the great information that is provide by Mark and absolutely love the podcasts.

    Episode 167 – This was by far the best explanation of Vaccines that I have ever heard. Dr. Foresman is a gift to us all. My wife and I have been engaged in the Vaccine topic for over 13 years as over older child is 12 years old. We were fortunate to have a Chiroprator and a Naturopath as our main caregivers along with Mid-wives which are the most incredible mothering birth/baby experts that truly care. Having said that, this podcast did an incredible job of putting together all the pieces of vaccines and provided me with an elevated level of understanding. Please keep up this good work and please have Dr. Foresman speak on more of the topics he discussed in this podcast.

    Comfort is not good for the organism. Parents need to challenge status quo for health and happiness of children. Podcasts like this, arm us parents with the knowledge needed to challenge… to push… to fight because our children deserve it.
