Dr. Naik has recently given a talk with Climate Healers. Here is their Facebook page:
https://www.facebook.com/climatehealers/

In her talk with Climate Healers, she went into much deeper detail about the myth of megadoses of Vitamin C working as a “vaccine” and also gives a much deeper explanation of ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Disorder).

***PLEASE NOTE: In this talk, around 49 minutes into the video, she said “your lungs and liver control pH” but she meant to say your lungs and KIDNEYS do that!

You can listen to that talk here:

ABOUT OUR GUEST:

Dr. Priyumvada Mohan Naik is a triple board-certified physician in pulmonary medicine, critical care medicine, and lifestyle medicine. She has additional training and expertise in lung transplantation, *ECMO, interstitial lung disease, genetic lung disease, immunology, and nutrition.

She attended Duke University, followed by medical school at The Medical College of Georgia. She did her internal medicine residency, and pulmonary and critical care fellowships at Emory University, the last two years of which she was the lung transplant fellow. She then spent time in Sydney, Australia, doing a transplant and *ECMO fellowship before returning to the US to practice as a transplant pulmonologist in Phoenix, at what is now the largest lung transplant center in the world.

She has published in the fields of internal medicine, lung transplantation, and organ donor management, having been the only fellow on the Society for Critical Care Medicine/American College of Chest Physicians consensus committee to craft guidelines on ICU management of the brain dead donor. She continues to work with local organizations to improve donor procurement rates to decrease recipient waitlist times and deaths.

In the intervening years, she has founded an advanced lung disease program, co-founded a lung cancer screening program, and served as medical director for an intensive care unit.

She has been vegan for nearly 9 years, and has been studying nutrition and lifestyle changes as it relates to chronic disease ever since. Going vegan inspired her to change her career trajectory, and she uses her expertise to help people control and even reverse chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, rheumatologic conditions, inflammatory bowel disease and more.

One of the most rewarding things for Dr. Naik is seeing a patient with multiple chronic diseases who, with her guidance, is empowered to change their health and their quality of life. Her work in Lifestyle Medicine often produces results just as dramatic as her work in the fields of Critical Care and Transplantation. She also loves teaching her colleagues and the next generation of doctors how to prescribe plants over pills, and how to reverse disease instead of simply managing it.

She hopes one day to only need to see people for genetic and other lung diseases because we have eliminated chronic lifestyle related ailments.

*ECMO is pronounced ek-moh. It’s basically putting people on cardiopulmonary bypass for severe lung, heart, or heart and lung disease. (Doing the job of the heart and lungs outside the body).
