Do you remember in 1977 when people were eating poisonous mushrooms? That event turned Dr. Berkson’s medical career around! Dr. Berkson was trained very conventionally, but when people were dying of liver failure from eating poisonous mushrooms, his PhD study of fungi turned his career from conventional medicine to a more natural approach. Dr. Berkson, along with his friend Dr. Fred Barter, discovered a treatment plan using Alpha Lipoic Acid that showed to reverse liver damage. In fact, 75 out of 79 patients treated with Alpha Lipoic Acid therapy regenerated their liver , preventing transplant surgery!

It converts your food to energy, recycles antioxidants (i.e. Vitamins C & D), stimulates glutathione production, restores T-cell function, and stimulates healthy mitochondria function.
