Host: Susanne Bennett, DC
Guest Bio: Dr. Zvi Pearlstein
Dr. Zvi Pearlstein is a Doctor, Father, Speaker, Author, Inventor... And Trumpeter. From a young age, Dr. Zvi had a deep-seated need and calling to find life’s meaning and purpose to understand and solve pain. His mother Celia passed in 2019 leaving behind writings and poetry of her emotional experiences during the Holocaust in Poland.

In 1976 Dr. Zvi received his BA in Biochemistry from Princeton University. In 1981 he received his MD from New York University School of Medicine. He completed a 5-year residency in Orthopedic Surgery at SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn in 1986. As a Major in the United States Air Force, Dr Zvi spent three years practicing orthopedic surgery at Clark Air Base in the Philippines and one year at Andrews Air Force Base in Wash. DC. He did active duty service during Persian Gulf War I. While serving in the Air Force he was a marksman shooter and was awarded the Sikorsky Helicopter Rescue Award.

Throughout his career he was looking for truth and often felt that certain problems needed better wellness and lifestyle answers and solutions. As a result, over the past 30 years he developed a series of products, inventions, books, and services, which he now sets in motion with his company Missing Links Health, Inc.


Stretching and The Soul: The Key To Health in 2021
With all of our focus on the COVID-19 pandemic, we are forgetting about another ongoing fight - a lack of exercise and a sedentary lifestyle. 

Remember the expression “sitting is the new smoking”? This phenomenon still rings true and it has gotten worse because of COVID-19. One of the many negative effects of the pandemic is that it has made Americans even more sedentary - and the effects of this are long lasting. With the continued rising number of Coronavirus cases, more people are staying home, working remotely, and getting less exercise, and simply not moving enough.

Dr. Zvi Pearlstein is a medical doctor and pioneer in the world of holistic wellness and pain management, as well as a best selling author.

He joins Dr. Susanne to talk about sitting vs. standing (spoiler alert: neither are the answer really), achieving optimal range of motion in your neck, and some of his inventions to help us get moving!
