Q&A with Dr. Amy Yasko

Dr. Amy Yasko has a PhD in Microbiology/Immunology/infectious Disease from Albany Medical College and has completed multiple postdoctoral fellowships at the Yale Medical center, Wilmot Cancer Center URMC and Pediatric Infectious Disease at URMC.

After working in biotechnology for 15 years. Dr. Amy shifted her focus to alternative halthcare. She has a Doctor of Natural Health, is a board-certified Alternative Medical Practitioner, a board certified Holistic Health Practitions and a Felllow of the American Association of Ingegrative Medicine.

Following the completion of her traiing in Natural Health Dr. Amy began giving in -person consultations in Bethel, Maine. This work laid the foundation for the Yasko Protocol over 20 years ago which was created to serve as a guide for individuals to built a personalized map for health and wellness by making choices grounded in science.

In this interview, Dr. Amy Yasko will discuss how the Yasko Protocol can be applied to those with neurological discorders, with a focus on Parkinson’s disease. The protocol emphasizes a data driven approach by using the results of non-invasive at-home test kits to help guide individuals on how to best support their unique system with the use of natural supplementation.

A Novel Approach for Reducing Stress that Fuels Parkinson’s Symptoms

Lilian Sjøberg is a Danish coach and trouble shooter, good at seeing patterns, with a masters in biology. For five years, she has collected knowledge about how people around the world get better from chronic diseases, such as Parkinson’s Disease, and coached people to get better by reducing stress. Her mission is to spread self-help tools and accessible therapies to all people with symptoms, stress, and diagnoses.


Lilian has created her online HOPE-shortcut programme, based on this knowledge and experience, which currently consists of a stress test, practical course and coaching sessions:

H: get new hope – you can get better, learn a new way of thinking about symptoms;

O: observe your symptoms – so you know if your symptoms are decreasing or not –  notice the variation and be aware of which situations that make your symptoms flare up;

P: pacify your symptoms, learn about the 4 main strategies that people around the world use to reduce symptoms;

E: engage yourself – get extra motivation to start the journey to better health and be persistent;

Nutritional and Lifestyle Approaches to Healing Parkinson’s

Csilla Veress ND, Dipl. OM, is primary care doctor at TrueNorth Health Center, in Santa Rosa, CA. Dr. Veress is a graduate from Rutgers University with a degree in Biology, and obtained her medical degree from Bastyr University, where she also finished her masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. The focus of her practice and outreach is to educate and inspire individuals to achieve optimal health, through nutrition and lifestyle medicine.

She has a regular lecture series at TrueNorth Health Center and does outreach to the community on the impact of whole food, plant-based nutrition, water fasting and lifestyle modification in preventing and treating chronic illness. She is a contributing writer for NPLEX, helping elevate excellence within the ND board examinations. She is an author of the sleep module component of the lifestyle Medicine Core curriculum offered by The American College of Lifestyle Medicine.

Dr. Veress has written several articles for Health Science Magazine, and her work has been featured on a Netflix documentary. She has been a contributing expert in various summits and podcasts, discussing the importance of plant based nutrition, fasting, sleep, stress management, and lifestyle hacking for optimal health.

The Coming Rejuvenation Biotechnology Revolution for Parkinson’s Disease

Most people think about Parkinson’s disease as being just what it’s called: a disease — a distinct clinical entity, which can be treated as a thing to itself. In fact, however, like all the other diseases of aging, it’s the result of the lifelong accumulation of specific kinds of cellular and molecular damage that happen to all of us as part of the biological aging process. PD results from specific kinds of aging damage accumulating in key parts of the brain and nervous system, but similar damage accumulates in other aging tissues, causing dysfunction in those local tissues; these degenerative processes get labeled “diseases” when they reach a tipping point and the tissue can no longer carry out its normal function.

The good news is that we now have a strategy for preventing, delaying, and one day even reversing Parkinson’s and other diseases of aging through the revolution in rejuvenation biotechnology: therapies that directly remove, repair, replace, or render harmless the damage of aging. By clearing out that damage from the tissues, functionality can be restored and youthful health and vigor with it.

SENS Research Foundation https://www.sens.org is a 501(c)3 medical research charity that is working hard to accelerate the development of a comprehensive suite of rejuvenation biotechnologies, to bring the benefits as soon as possible to as many people as possible.

My guest today is Michael Rae, Science Writer at SENS Research Foundation, and coauthor with cofounder and science advisor Dr. de Grey of “Ending Aging:”



Modern medicine uses biochemistry as the science of healing, but research is uncovering that Bioenergetics, an exciting, emerging area of 21st century medicine is a more effective, life-sustaining approach that heals all living systems.

Your body is made up of 70-100 trillion cells, and these cells perform thousands of biochemical functions every day. But what controls the biochemistry of your body? Well, we now know that the answer is Energy.

Every living thing on the planet gives & receives energy including the cells in your body! This energy forms fields in your body we call collectively  the Body-Field.

Your Body-Field transmits information to your cells own energy fields about what biochemical functions to perform and in what order- it is the information-software that directs your organisms energy-hardware. When this energy is blocked, the information is also blocked or gets distorted, and your body ceases to function the way it should.


Is It Possible to Regenerate Our Brain?

– What is your FAN-C approach to brain regeneration?

F- is for functional, A- for assessment, N-for nerve health nutrients, and -C, for cellular regeneration.

– What is laser activated and guided stem cell treatments?

Our newest addition to treatment, the very exciting very small embryonic stem cells, from our own bodies, get activated using red laser light, and then are given back to the body to help aid it’s healing capacity.

– Hope:

We are living at an incredible time, with many new procedures showing great promise and most importantly, we are getting real world results.

Dr. Gregory Eckel has spent the last 20+ years developing and refining his unique approach to chronic neurological conditions. In addition to his experience in clinical practice using a combination of Naturopathic and Chinese Medicine, he has a deep personal connection with chronic neurological disease since his wife Sarieah passed of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD), a condition with no known cure. As she was the love of his life, he took a deep dive into research and uncovered regenerative medicine and the development of a brain regenerative program. In loving memory of his wife, he has continued to help others with neurodegenerative diseases improve their quality of life and find natural solutions.

Dr. Eckel is a highly respected international lecturer, author, and expert in integrative care for neurodegeneration. Co-Founder and owner of Nature Cures Clinic in Portland, Oregon,

The Cultural Brain and the Immune System

Dr. Mario E. Martinez, a clinical neuropsychologist, established the Biocognitive Science Institute™ in 1998. He developed a theory of mindbodyculture he calls Biocognition to suggests how cognition and biology coemerge with their cultural history in a bioinformational field that seeks maximum contextual relevance.

Mario Martinez’s theory of biocognitive science proposes that the brain learns to interpret symbols and their biological correlates from cultural contexts. He is the proponent of cultural psychoneuroimmunology (how cultural beliefs affect the regulation of nervous, immune, and endocrine systems). The plasticity of our brain allows for reversals of dysfunctional behavior learned from the cultural reality we weave to perceive our world.
