Counting US Research Rodents
"I this week. We have online news editor david graham. We're gonna talk about how many rodents rats and mice are used in. Us biomedical research each year. Hi dave here. When i first saw on the lineup i immediately sent you a guess. For how many rats and mice might be used by researchers every year. I was way off. What was your guest. it was eight million. Okay pay everyone listening you. Guess your own guests. I was way off. But the one clue so dave according to the study that we're going to be talking about today how many rats and mice are used or our house for biomedical research each year in the us. So according steady two hundred and eleven million. So i was way off. Were you surprised by this number. Kind of i mean the behind the study whose names larry carboni. He's at the university of california san francisco. Garri actually just left. There had written a book about fifteen years ago where he made a guest admit that was eighty to a hundred million so i heard a very high figure before but that is a lot higher than what other groups have estimated. The estimate tends to be around fifteen to twenty million. Why is this number mysterious. Why are people guessing or estimating how many of these animals are used in research. And this isn't something that we track greg. So there's something called the animal welfare act which is a federal law. That's been around for more than fifty years actually. Nbc wanted allows is the united states department of agriculture. Usda to go to my universities private companies any facility that has animals that are covered by that act usda goes in and inspect those animals for welfare counts them now. The problem is that there are only limited number of animals that are covered by that act that includes dogs cats rabbits monkeys but mice and rats and birds for the most part have always been excluded or mostly that excluded from that that means that the only agency that would go from especially as is counting. These animals is now counting mice rats. Nobody actually has any idea how many of these animals are being used in the us facilities. How does this value. Though this one hundred ten million or maybe the low value of twenty five million compare with those other lab animal populations that you're talking about rabbits cast dogs it's vastly more should matter who's number you believe. Everybody seems to agree that lab mice and rats makeup at least ninety three percent of all the mammals used by medical research so the total number all those other animals. I was talking about these animals that are covered by the welfare in the whole united states is about seven hundred
"bowel syndrome" Discussed on Surgery 101
"Hello and welcome back to surgery one. Oh one the podcast brought to you with the health department surgery at the university of alberta my name is jonathan white.
The Benefits Of Hypnotherapy
"Hey Alex welcome to the show. It's great to have you here today and I'm excited to chats about well not. So commonly now on topic today well, and maybe there's also quite a few misconceptions about it. hypnotherapy could you please introduce yourself and tell audience what mindset health does show? So Yup, hi, I'm Alison Coach of Health We build hypnosis spaced digital therapeutics for chronic health conditions like IBS anxiety. So essentially, the programs developed by doctors and psychologists to. Use hypnosis hypnosis based techniques to help people self that conditions right and so so what should our listeners like imagine? So it's an APP and it's kind of guiding me through hypnotherapy session or what should I imagine? Yeah. Yeah. So safer fell IBS Procam Nova. It's a structured program of audio sessions on order sessions plus psycho education and flare up techniques and essentially think guided meditation and the delivery methods was audio of coming boys getting to you into helping you. Get into a relaxed focused state. Then it's designed by doctors and psychologists teaching coping skills. It's I'm using visualizations to help increase your ability to self regulate. Right. So that's really the core difference between guided meditation sessions ride. They're more about you know folk singing and clearing your mind to some extent whereas hypnotherapy is using some of that. But really with the purpose of inducing you to making it more receptive to while things that you are looking to change your behavior. Exactly exactly. Yeah. That that's a great description of it. Essentially, hypnosis is becoming highly focused and absorbed to the point that you become more suggestive also receive receptive to new ideas or perceptions. So it's not a therapy itself but when it's combined with their PD techniques, cpt, it becomes hypnotherapy and so while because you'll like essentially low lowering your critical faculty and becoming more receptive and I'm in this sort of experiential learning state I'm when wet teaching you coping skills on. Bass coping skills or going through visualizations you really integrate them much more fully and studies have shown. It can actually improved effectiveness bt for many many conditions. Right and this is nothing like what has been popularized in Hollywood movies as being like put into a state where you lose all your awareness about what the hypnotists saying and what you're doing yourself and Sunday, you're chicken. Exactly. Yeah it's much more like if anything it's more a tightened away innocent heightened focus of what they're saying. So compared to say when we're talking about meditation about like clearing clearing your mind, this is much more like folks really focused on what they're saying tow. It's much more of an active active thing that got it, and so what can you really use it for what are like some of the common conditions that you can treated with? So it's been shown to help a variety of. Conditions. So one of the most well studied areas is irritable passenger. So there's been a tape of evidence showing it can reduce help manage symptoms by seventy percent of people by sixty percent reduction. So it's pretty powerful. It can also help with anxiety depression like teaching coping skills that can help you manage stresses and problem solving skills that can say depression. They often make portions when depressed and so teaching people with the skills to help them make better decisions is one way of managing that and. Is such a powerful vehicle for teaching skills. It can be used across a lot of things another well, well-researched area is chronic pain. So there's been a whole heap of evidence supporting it as a way to reduce acute pain in the moment, but also long term chronic pain conditions such as migraines chronic back pain something that's quite recently such. But this a pretty strong evidence behind it is helping reduce Menopausal postmenopausal hot flashes. So there was a study coming out of Baylor University that found hypnosis or a five-week hypnosis program could help reduce the onset and the the occurrence of hot flashes in postmenopausal women by. Eighty percent after the five-week on program. So it's this pretty strong evidence for writing things they sleep on smoking cessation is coming like ones that might people might associate with hypnosis but because it's just a vehicle for therapeutic aches and most people can become focused and absorbed in what they're doing with a movie or driving or in a daydream it is a widely useful tool, right and right now with mindset alfio primarily focused on mental health ibs and chronic pain management that's still in the works from what I understand right? Exactly. So we we started with mental health and essentially Wichmann, Dr Michael, Yap Kerr on the world leader. In hypnosis actually has textbook on clinically uses hypnosis, but he's a depression expert as well. So are we started with mindset which is a series of programs that teach individual skills and cognitive mechanisms round variety of mental health mental areas but with Nova, which is out second program that's structured six week program for Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and that was based on a twenty sixteen clinical trial by at Monash. University that found six weeks of DOT therapy could help improve IBM symptoms by an average of sixty percent for seventy percent of people, and we've worked with the ray such a I'm from that study to as essentially take her. Work and then deliver through my ball up right and in the future will be we'll be expanding that that sort of ability of waking with such as for different programs into chronic pain into hot flashes into many different areas.
Five Ways To Manage Constipation Even If Your Child Takes Laxatives
"Before I share tips on how to manage constipation. You may be good idea to just quick run through what is constipation and actually you know you may find that your baby or child has large stews and these are difficult to pause, and there's something called Burston stooge shorts. You can either Google that or if you go to my latest blog post on held babies and toddlers constipation, there's a link in that block pose on. How a picture of the Bristol stool shot, we basically grading of the different types of stews. So with constipation, it'll be more rating type one and type two rather stews either separated hawed and lumpy were they all sausage like but with cracks in it and that's conservation. Usually your baby child will experience pain when passing stools and generally if your baby pausing fewer than three movements but week and when they do a poo, if they are in pain discomfort, then generally that's a good telltale sign that they have constipation and is usually at this point, you probably have a chat with your child's GPO pediatrician and for children whether happened Sistan Constipation, they may have been described laxatives I thought we'd focus on laxatives for the purpose of today's block posed an podcast episode because it's the most common type of medication that's prescribed to manage the constipation. The ways of classifying. Constipation could be say. Less than a quarter of the stews all great ones are hard and they're quite separate hard lumps or grade to is lumpy sausage like Pooh that we've spoken about and very few students and less than a quarter of your students would be loose and watery. Some children and adults including older adults may also suffer from ideas and Bowel Syndrome is generally to affect about seven to fifteen percent of the population, and you know quite a majority of they may not even realize that they have insect of had long term problems with constipation. They may have some of these laxatives prescribed and IB sense to be more common in women. Than in men and the reason really bringing it up, is because it sort of wrongs in families. If women are more likely to suffer for my via. So chances are suspected you China might have ideas then you you know I the Mum or Dad may also have. IBS. But really. Many many reasons for constipation and in terms of ideas. That's more functional constipation. That's how the. is working with the GUT is working, and so these all of fear tips if you chocolate has never had a consultation with a pediatric, Don Titian and your doctor has prescribed laxatives to help your child Oakland bows and don't get me wrong they work really well so they should be quite effective in managing. But if you you know you'd thinking actually never really looked that out John's died and love to know what are some things that we need to focus on They are going to go through five things that you can try right now to help your Sean Open Their Bounds. So the first is of course fluid and this lawn tends to be overlooked often we you know we underestimate the power of good hydration and how it can affect your child's stools. If they are struggling to pass a poo and you notice that they also have very dark colored P or urine however, you want to say it or you want is imposing. There's been a reduction in the number of wet nappies. Then it may be time to think about the fluids. Especially, this week has been quite hot. Had A lovely Indian summer. Or delayed Indian weather if you like. So it may be that we just need to amp up the fluids and one thing that we found really effective so when I used to work as renal dawn Titian. And Age Ruins Hospital lovely rain on as used to give families in a four sheet of paper, and it would have say six to eight cups drawn in it, and it was actually the opposite. So often are renal kids particularly with advanced chronic kidney disease day will on fluid restriction. So the idea of having these cops. In the sheet with cops in it was that you know the kids could take than the each cops every time they had a couple fluid and a cup might be a sixty miles. Hundred and fifty miles or whatever it is that's been agreed. So they will have their own fluid allowance for the day. They were just ticket so that they could keep track of how much fluid the drinking and they don't go above their fluid announce it could be the opposite the if we we could use this nice eight four sheet with the cups. Pictures of cops in it by saying much encases China has six of three meals a day and perhaps two to three snacks. So get to make sure that they have a cup of fluid with each each meal and snack. Now, your might be completely different. So your child's Cup Maroney owed hundred mills in which case you may vary the amount of. Cups that he wanted to draw and I wouldn't get to walk down with how much fluids they need often if they're. Or urine is quite. Clear or Straw colored. Then it's a good sign that they are drinking enough and drinking more than what they need isn't necessarily going to benefit their constipation. It's more just making sure that they do get enough.
"bowel syndrome" Discussed on The Doctor's Farmacy with Mark Hyman, M.D.
"They know the doctors who were treating her said, all that has nothing to do with your symptoms. I mean, they they literally, you know they didn't want. They didn't want to admit that it was from irradiation. Yeah, and then she came in and she actually had had some testing done previously. What? I, what I think the doctor actually do the testing didn't know. How to interpret the test properly, but the patients cal protect them was elevated. So cal protected and is. A. biomarker in the got, it's I, call it like. CRP got. So we have this compound which is called A to B C reactive protein. When it's elevated, it is a biomarker of systemic inflammation in. It's also highly correlated with heart disease. And cal protected is found in the gut in his like the CRP when. Inflammation yet. Exactly. So that tells you usually for classic, you know what? We Call Era Bowel Syndrome. You don't usually have inflammation per se is not really dramatic inflammations. There's dysfunction, but there's not inflammation. So her irritable bowel was actually partly inflammation. And I think that was a one of the big things that was driving. The other thing on this particular patient says, she had testing a undetectable affiliate. Accurate, right. So this. A It's A. It's a mucus loving bacteria, and what we've found is that higher levels of this is correlated with leaner body mass, less chance of obesity, less chance of diabetes and It's also you WANNA, have higher levels of this because it's a protective good book, it's not. It's not. It's not appropriate immunities yet let-let's risk of cancer. So, it's not a, it's not a bug that you can go out and get a pill for at least not yet Eventually, we might beneficial, but we'll find out is that this particular bacteria feeds on fibers. Specifically, polyphenyls rose polyphenyls are those compounds that are a fighter nutrients found in lots of colorful of fruits and vegetables is a pomegranate and green tea and cranberry raspberries. Yeah. Your little bugs like cranberry pomegranates in green tea. Exactly. They love that stuff. This is there. A miracle, it's a miracle. You put this stuff on there and the good bugs flourish fairly understanding. You know because he's not okay. You need prebiotics probiotics but I think the. POLYPHENYLS also critically important on to. Your Gut for the three PS. Yes. Exactly, and and the the other thing which I always come back to when think about the digestive track is is So beautiful visual is the rainforest and for anybody who knows about rainforests rainforests. Full of biodiversity as lots of flora and fauna, there's frogs birds. There's all different plants, insects, worms, and the more biodiversity that you have in your personal internal rainforest healthier. GonNa be There's there's there's tons of studies that have shown this, and it's it's it's non linear is very, very complex. There's this whole ecosystem and there's as cross-feeding and interaction. That happens when you have a diverse internal rainforest Izzo Torino's talking to A. Professor. At Harvard, who's a psychiatrist and also runs the Department of the TRICIA psychiatry. She's written a book. called. This is your brain on food talking about the microbiome and its effect on psychiatric illness. Absolutely. So we we use the think that you know the crazy person would have a gut problems turns out the GUT problem. People have the crazy thing stared because of the gut thing and fixing the gut fixes, the depression anxiety ocd, all these crazy things that we thought of our psychiatric illnesses turns out there really related to the imbalances in the microbiome in the lower diversity. Western societies have increasingly lower diversity out huge huge. Yeah. He's an happens very, very early on as in what typically will happen is is there are there are some people that they're they're. They're very picky eaters and they won't. They'll be eating the same food over and over and over here and I was tell patients that you know. You WanNa try to increase your intake of diverse fruits, vegetables trying to eat right now, in the Berkshires, we have lots of great vegetables that are available that you may not get year round and you know eating A. You want Criolla Crayon box more color you have in your diet. The healthier your diet is going to be and I wanNA come back to something you said before about this inflammation in the gut is a whole new phenomena call pre inflammatory bowel disease. So we thought air will bow was an inflammatory. It turns out even if you can't always detect, it tends to be very inflammatory and there are there are cases like you saw people with this pre ibd. So it's like pre precluded sound like one one night you wake up and all of a sudden you got crohn's disease executives. This level of of this marker we check and it's often elevated and people have not full blown crises. But something's going on in their this driving inflammation, they have to deal with those factors. Exactly. Yeah, exactly. So this patient, all show side to elevate agglutinate anybody's right. So she this low Ackerman Sia, she had elevated gluten, anybody's I protecting. Yep, and so this is a sort of a perfect setup for having a messed up gut absolutely yet. Yeah. How do you? How would you take care of this patient than who came in with the gluten issues, the low ackerman SIA and the cow protective? Will it mean to address the inflammation by the way? These are something that your traditional doctor will never look for we usually. Look for and functional medicine at the Altar WanNa, some sort of standard operating procedure us to really look at these things. Yeah. So so you know to to treat inflammation. I always liked to check the mega three fatty acids. Can we have low essential fatty acids. You're a setup for inflammation. So in this particular patient, they'd pay at sub optimal, Omega three fatty acids which related eating cold water fish. So I got her to a take some a supplemental mega vati acids had increased efficient take I used on anti-inflammatory Supplement, call altern flanax. Has a powder cumin and other things to help decrease inflammation in the GUT, ginger? Roseanne Roseanne Ginger and Rosemary exactly, and then also used in Tarragona, which is a Immunoglobin that helps with patients who have a sort of your diarrhea type That's actually a prescription medication. So so tell us more about what what is this immunoglobulin stuff because you hear a lot about it and yet it's serum bovine derived Immunoglobin and basically. colostrum. E You can think of is like colostrum main. Yet colostrum is classroom. Is this stuff that in mother's milk that before the milk comes onto? To the baby exactly gives it's passive immunity. So it's the mother's. Immune system that's passed down to the child. So which is really quite amazing when you think about from evolutionary standpoint that the mother's immune system has evolved in learned what to deal with and how to deal with it, and then that immune system gets literally transferred in the rest milk to the baby. Until the baby can actually develop its own exactly examining, and the interesting thing is our immune system has to learn. It's got it's gotta be. It's gotTa go to school. Yeah, and and and that's why when you see these little kids who are crawling around on the ground and they're putting stuff in their mouth, we're developing call coastal tolerance. It's the immune system learning to deal with the. The planet earth and it. You know it realizes that, okay. You're going to be around a lot of these things. You don't want to overreact to it and I know we always talked about you know what is a healthy immune system? Will a healthyman system is a tolerant immune system? Yeah. Doesn't overreact or under react That's that's the key thing and I always say I want a strong immune system. We have a too strong immune system. That's call immune disease. Right when your body's reacting to everything is like overreacting. So having a tolerance and mucosal tolerance is really really important and the other thing which I in some of the lectures I do not I I like to. This is you can think of we have the Boston Symphony Orchestra in. Tanglewood is is not about open this season because of covid. But in the bosses for the orchestra, you have the conductor in the conductor balances the woodwinds in strings and everything, and they sort of keep everything in balance, and in the immune system, we have cells called t red cells, and the T. rake cells regulate the immune system between the various parts of the rag majors not too hot, not to call exactly exactly and guess what helps with T. Rex's fiber. Fiber. Yes..
Primer on Prebiotics
"So what's the topic for this week? This week we're going to be talking about prebiotics prebiotics interesting. I've heard of probiotics but not pre. Yeah so a lot of people have heard of probiotics and some might even think that the word probiotic is a misspelling of the word program right but no they are actually two separate things and so a probiotic is another word for a a beneficial bacteria that lives in our intestines okay. Most of them live in the large intestine. Which is also known as Colon and they're there as a part of our immune system there it's all bacteria yes. Oh Yeah we have. We have more bacteria in in an on our body than we have cells. What Yeah Yeah. It's it's pretty amazing. This is something that we call the microbiome and I believe we did a podcast on microbiome at some point in the past. Yeah but the microbiome refers to all of these bacteria that live and on us and The ones that get most of the attention are the ones that live in our intestines because they serve as a part of our immune system. They're sort of a like soldiers they kinda tried to keep the bad bacteria out so the do the bad bacteria while they they basically try to crowded out and and prevented from doing any damage and preventing prevent it from getting inside of our body like You know a lot of times. We think of our intestinal tract as as inside of our body and it's sort of is like encased within the body but it's really a narrow tube that just kind of goes through the body and that tube is basically the barrier between the intestine itself and our bloodstream. Which is you know. The bloodstream is what carries everything to the organs or body including our brain and our hearts and our liver everything so the idea is to keep the bad things from getting through and then the and having them move on through down into the large intestine where they become part of the stool and then get eliminated from the body so it sounds like we just need a lot lot of probiotics to overwhelm the the bad stuff. You got that right. That's exactly right. And that's where prebiotics come in interesting because probiotics are living organisms they are. They're alive bacteria and they like any other living organisms. They need food. They need something to eat so that they can multiply and proliferate within the back within the the colon within the intestines. So if we don't have enough food for those probiotics they die off to and then when you don't have enough probiotics in there and then bad bacteria gets in there. Then the bad bacteria can take over. Oh and that is when people get sick. That's when you know your immune system goes down a lot of other things that can happen from an overgrowth of bad bacteria. You get bloating. You can get irritable Bowel Syndrome. You know and and and you can have absorption of your nutrients. There's a lot of things that can go wrong when you have an overgrowth of bad bacteria so when you do have an overgrowth do you just consume a lot of probiotics. Well see that's been one of the kind of the standard approach is to try to help. People reduce their bad bacteria is to Throw a bunch of probiotics at it. Like take doses of probiotics or supplement forms and also through food sources and where we get our probiotic. Bacteria is either from fermented foods like Sauerkraut Kombucha Tea Yogurt. Yogurt fermented dairy product. That provides a lot of probiotics into the into the intestines. But if you don't also give those probiotics something to feed off of to keep them growing and proliferating then they die off and then you're right back where you started from. So prebiotics are good maintenance plan. You gotTa have a good maintenance plan without you gotta keep giving it to your body. Basically exactly so so the word pre means before right and so the the prebiotic is the is what needs to happen for those probiotics to be able to multiply so prebiotics are are basically They're not living organisms they're actually fibers They're actually a type of carbohydrate. That exists in specific foods that we eat and our digestive systems. Don't break those particular. Carbohydrates down there. You know that. That's sort of the general description of what fiber is. It's a it's a type of carbohydrate that we don't break down so it doesn't Give us any calories or anything and so Oftentimes We don't we don't have any digestive enzymes in our system that are designed to break those fibers down so they so they move through our intestine and then when they get to that large intestine. That's when they actually are the food for the bacteria that are there so the so while we don't as you know our digestive system doesn't use them for any purpose for energy the probiotics eat them and basically start fermenting them. That's sort of really what happens is it. They're they're called fermentable types of fibers because the probiotic bacteria can start feeding on them and break them down and then they produce beneficial compounds that help seal the gut lining so that those bad bacteria that may come through can't get into our bloodstream So they're they're really important. So not only do they allow the probiotics to multiply but they also produce compounds. That are beneficial. So it's R- so they're very important so that I guess the thing to then talk about is. What foods do we find these in right? And then how are they working within our body? And how do we make sure we get enough of them so So there are like I mentioned the these type their indigestible fibers for our human intestinal system. So they become food for the bacteria so Where we find them is in the same foods that we would find other types of fiber so beans beans tend to be a really good source of these prebiotic types of fibers But some very specific foods to like chicory root Onions onions have a really good are really good source of these prebiotic fibers and then Something called the Jerusalem artichoke which is different from the globe artichokes that most people are familiar with the Jerusalem. Artichoke kind of looks like a long skinny Tuber kind of looks almost like a skinny sweet potato in a way And then garlic garlic is a really good source of the Prebiotics and so are leaks and leaks. League is kind of like it. Looks like a great big giant green onion. Okay and leaks are kind of part of that. Same family of garlic and onions okay. So they have these same types of fibers in them. And those are those are where we get our prebiotics from They're found in a number of other things we that we find them in lentils we find them in Lima beans. Green peas kidney beans and chickpeas so if people chickpeas and other word for that as being so if you're a lover of helmets. Promises made out of garbanzo beans. So if you're a lover of Hamas you're probably giving an a you know a good amount of these prebiotics fibers that's awesome yeah And then another really interesting food that a lot of people probably don't enjoy much but it's the green banana like it's the raw banana before it has ripened when it is still in the green state which is an unripe state Usually we wouldn't recommend eating unripe fruits like that But it it actually has a good amount of probiotic in it. And when you know when a banana ripens. Basically what's happening is there is a fermentation process at starting to go on and that's why the sugars become more prominent because some of the other Carbohydrates in the banana are starting to break down for men so some of those sugars are released So you kind of lose some of your prebiotic fibers when the banana ripens. Eating that in that Ross state can give you more of them
Codependency and the Nervous System, and Managing Stress in a Pandemic with Victoria Albina
"Love to get started by talking about your story. So you talk about how you coach. Women raised by people who are codependent or alcoholic or both to stop being anxious exhausted and overwhelmed so you can cultivate better relationships with yourselves with other people and then also you have this other like cool section of your work. Were this intersection of like you. Also help people here. They're adrenals and justify issues with functional medicine. So how did you get to that place? Yeah so my story starts like so many of the stories of the folks who do the work. We do With a lot of sickness so I grew up with wake. Bowel Syndrome heartburn. So bad I couldn't sleep lying down for years and I really. I was very very sick. All of that led to my adrenals. Doing what adrenals should do when you're so sick which is just kind of giving up the ghost a little bit you know and it was really really really challenging to find help. I went to a hundred thousand different. Doctors had every test imaginable including like swallowing radioactive liquids. And getting all these extra. It was bananas and the Best Advice I ever got was good luck right like pretty much. There's nothing we can do for you in Western medicine and you're on your own Kitto and that didn't Jive for my super science-based nerdy self right. I knew that another way was possible and I realized I had to find it on my own so I started started studying herbs. I started studying supplements holistic medicine. Public Health I eventually went to. Ucsf the University of California San Francisco and became a nurse Practitioner I really wanted to understand the science behind it all and why couldn't stop having these terrible symptoms and through that work. I started practicing medicine. I worked in primary care for years and I realized that again the drug based one pill one ill western system couldn't help with the deeper underlying stuff and so my science brain said well more advanced. Testing is the way to go so. I trained in that I stayed with Chris Presser. I learned how to do all the advanced functional medicine route. 'cause work all of that helped me and helped my patients to heal things like small intestine. Bacterial overgrowth CBO library. Which is the same thing in the large intestine and I would get better and it symptoms would relapse and then I'd get better and I'd take a fistful more supplements and symptoms would relapse and what I came to understand. Over the last decade was that while the physiology is incredibly important. Right I had parasites. I beg overgrowth. They needed to be dealt with appropriately. Murdered I couldn't get back into real health really feeling well until I learned to attend my nervous system. Because the autonomic nervous system is the thing that rules Gosh everything are digestion are thyroid. Our Dreams are hormone balance and by not looking at my trauma my own co-dependency my own struggles with self doubt perfectionism et CETERA. I was in fact keeping myself ill without realizing it right because I was stuck in all these coping strategies which were gifts when I was a kid but as an adult no longer served me so I recognize that I needed to bring all this work deeply into my practice. I trained as a life coach with a life coach school I trained in somatic modalities and here. I am helping. Women folks assigned female at birth when folks who identify as women to shake free from codependency and all those old patterns that keep our physiology stock so we can heal in deep ways. It's so amazing. And so interesting too. Because I feel there aren't enough. People that are talking about the interconnectedness between between our psychology and physiology right and especially in the nutrition and the functional medicine world. We tend to blame everything on food or we tend to say unfortunately a lot of what's tended to happen not necessarily by experienced practitioners. But let's say influencers out there is like oh you have this condition like let's slap this food on it or like let's slap this supplement on it and then it'll fix everything just remove this one food and then it'll fix everything and like you mentioned you can do all the testing you can do all the elimination diets. You can do all the work and stuff that you would assume but then your symptoms kept coming back and it was because of this psychological side that you finally realize absolutely yeah and the deep ways like you said that psyche and Soma are one your mind and body are one and your spirit is a huge part of this as well spirit soul whatever word you use your vital life force energy needs to be. Gosh in your consciousness right. Yeah and I think. We're getting a big wakeup call right now to attend to ourselves in all of these ways. Yeah definitely and we so. If you're listening to this now we're going to be talking about the how to manage the stress response that we're all experiencing due to. Cova a little bit later. But first I want to talk about a word that you had mentioned and I had mentioned but I haven't actually dove into on the podcast yet so I'd love if you could talk a little bit more about codependency and what that is. Yeah so codependency is when you chronically. Put yourself last in order to gain the love. Validation Acceptance Care approve all of other people so any put other people's thoughts feelings actions wellness ahead of your own because somewhere deep inside. You believe that this will make you worthy of love. It will make you a valid person and usually one has been doing this since childhood and so it becomes a part of your identity right. Oh I'm just a caretaker. Oh I just I love doing things for others which to be clear. There's nothing wrong with taking care of other people. I just want to support folks in taking care of themselves.

Diet and Digestion Issue
"The question is from a listener named Carla who writes dear Christie first of all I would like to express my gratitude for your podcast not just because your words and ideas reach me personally but because you're educating a whole new generation of people about accepting themselves and others around on your podcast has been quite helpful so far but I do have a question that maybe you could help me out with as I feel this. Topic is not readily discussed still. I've been struggling with being a part of Diet. Hi It culture since I was probably five years old and now I am twenty along the way of suffered disordered eating and perhaps a form of binge eating disorder. I've been doing so so much better in the last two years but have one thing on my mind that causes me problem. Sometimes which is digestion. It seems like once you notice your digestion getting messed up as mine did during severe periods of restriction you cannot put it out of your mind that easily anymore. I suffered constipation for some time during my eating disorder days which do not suffer today anymore but I'm still highly highly aware of it for example. My digestion works out quite well. If I had my predictable daily routine sleep enough etc but sometimes if it happens that I don't manage to go to the toilet as predicted I feel like my whole day is not going well and I also have different food preferences and sometimes even feel simply tired down. I notice not not something I can force as bodies have their own wisdom but I'd like to know how to cope with this uncertainty and lowered mood especially when I'm traveling. I want to go out there in the world and explore or as much as I can without being dependent on my digestive processes and worrying whether I'll be loaded constipated or something else and know that the still might be taboo topic on public platforms platforms but I feel like you're a person could help kindest regards Carla so thanks Carla for that great question and before I answer just my usual disclaimer that these answers and this podcast in general are informational and educational purposes only at art a substitute for individual medical or mental health advice so yeah this is such a great question and it really is not discussed enough in our field but I just want to empathize with your situation because I actually went through something really similar myself in the early days of my recovery so I can feel your pain and I know digestive. Discomfort is a big pain. I've shared here before on the podcast that I was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome and also acid reflux or gird is the acronym for it right around the time that I was
Food allergy vs. food intolerance: What's the difference?
"But having a bad reaction of food isn't the same as having a food allergy. Komo's Connie Thompson explains. Never study found nineteen percent of. People believe they had a food allergy.

But for someone with an allergy touching inhaling or ingesting, even microscopic amount of the food can be deadly. When in doubt talked to an allergist began food allergies can be severe and they could be fatal.

It can be confusing to a patient. The most. Important thing I would say, is to identify whether it is a food allergy or not, because if it is a food allergy that you need to have certain precautions in place, and carry certain medications with Casey to have a food allergic reaction, helping to identify whether it's an intolerance is also important because it could just make your quality of life much better.

529 - Is Leaky Gut a Legitimate Diagnosis?
"Intestinal permeability or what people like to refer to as leaky gut refers to an abnormal amount of flow of stuff from inside the gut between the cells of the gut, and so to understand what it really is. You have to understand that your guts main function, in terms of digestion and nutrition is to serve as a very selective barrier. Your intestine is a barrier from the outside world to the inside world. So that everything from the outside doesn't just willy nilly flow, into our body. Right. Don't forget. We've got trillions of bacteria living in there. They need to stay there and not have access into our bloodstream. And so the gut has a really important. Dear function. Okay. The main way that things get from the outside world of the gut to the inside world of the body is actually through the cells of the gut themselves. Okay. So the cells of our gut, they're called and terra sites. And they can allow all sorts of food proteins, vitamins and minerals in nutrition into the body, very selectively through the cells themselves. And that's the primary way that things from the outside world, come in, but there's a secondary channel, and that is in between the cells. And so if you picture, these sills kind of lined up in a column like soldiers standing tightly shoulder to shoulder, there's a little bit of room for some water for some sodium for some teensy-weensy. Little sugars to kind of flow in between the shoulders of these cells standing like soldier shoulder to shoulder, and that is between the cells, and that is normal. Okay. That's called Paris cellular transport, and that's normal as well. Intestinal permeability or leaky nece refers to a situation. Where more than that normal amount of just a little bit of water or small sugars or sodium starts being able to flow in between those cells. That's what we mean by intestinal permeability now the question is what actually happens when more than just that small normal amount of stuff flows through? There is a second barrier of defense at the base of those cells because your body isn't just going to let anything flow through, if it makes it through, just come on in. So there's a second line of defense, and that's your immune system. There's all sorts of immune cells. White blood cells kind of standing at the base of those channels at the ready as a second line of defense. And so if small fragments of bacteria or bacterial toxins, or larger food molecules or food proteins, that don't really belong there if they kind of flow through those power cellular, or between sell channels, the interact with those white blood cells, those immune cells, and it produces an immune reaction, which can cross some loc-. Michael inflammation within the gut. That's a great explanation. And I think it gives us maybe a more helpful visualization than the kinds of diagrams. We might see online where you actually see little pieces of cupcake floating around in your bloodstream, because it snuck through the the barrier. So do we know what causes the situation, what might give rise to intestinal permeability? So we know a few of the things, but, you know, the science and the research into intestinal permeability is still really at its infancy. So there's some stuff we know in a lot more that we don't quite now. So one of the known causes of increased intestinal permeability is sort of an acute bacterial infection, food poisoning or like a really bad, bout of bacterial infections, or something called c diff which some people get in a hospital or certain strains of E, coli toxin from contaminated food or water. And so if you have sort of an acute bacterial infection of the gut from traveler's diarrhea or food poisoning certain bacterial toxins can cause. Ause increase intestinal permeability, so that's one pretty well established. 'cause as far as other causes, you know, scientists are still trying to understand cause and effect. So we see increased intestinal permeability associated with other types of diseases, for example, Crohn's disease, which is a type of inflammatory bowel disease. We also see it in association with irritable bowel syndrome, and with Celia disease, but it's not clear whether those diseases caused the intestinal permeability or are caused by it. And so the, the direction of that relationship is not really, well understood quite yet.
Placebo: Can the Mind Cure You?
"To turnout noses up at the placebo effect because the idea that people can feel better from a pill that has no actual medicine in it. It sounds kind of ridiculous like how is that possible? But years and years of scientific research has shown that the placebo effect, really works, and it works for all kinds of people people. Like, oh, my name is Linda this is Linda banana and for decades, she suffered with a condition called irritable bowel syndrome, and she said it was awful to me. It was like your intestines. Twisting real tight tight like a rubber band. Sometimes two days straight. I'm sick with it irritable bowel syndrome or IBS is really common. It's way you can get horrible stomach pains diarrhea or constipation and it can be completely debilitating with BS. You never know when you're going to be sick. You'll be okay one minute. And then all of a sudden it just. And currently, there's no cure, Linda, tried everything pills diets change this change that noth nothing absolutely nothing was helping. But then one day she saw an ad on the tally for an exciting. New IBS study. I says, well, you know, maybe should call them up. Maybe they can help me out. So she called the number on the screen and got into this trial at Harvard Medical School in Boston where doctor handed her a bottle of pills is just a capsule pill. It's got like the powder inside. Now as you might have guessed that powder. It's no cutting edge medicine. It's a placebo. There's no active drugs in it at all, Linda goes home. She takes these pills and for the first few days. Nothing changes. And then the fourth day this when they realized my pain was all gone as well. Maybe it's just my imagination. I says it'll come back tomorrow or the next day. Well, before you noted seven days, it's ten days. It's two weeks. I was in shock. I said, nah. This can't be all of a sudden, there's absolutely nothing. Absolutely nothing. I'm talking about gone nothing that once symptom at all I'm waiting around for the paint comeback and nothing's coming back, and this is the wild effect that placebos can have you take a pill. We've no actual medicine in it. But you feel the benefit anyway. So that alone is pretty strange, but what happened to Linda was even strange out because from the very start when her doctor told her to take those capsules with white powder. He actually told her that this wasn't real medicine. He told me it was a placebo. It wasn't a medication. I thought what Linda was part of the first randomized control trial, the told patients way giving you a placebo. This is basically a sugar pill, and he'd involved around seventy people who had had IBS for a while it compared Linda's group who would taking placebos and knew it to those who just kept doing what they would do. Thing and on average the people who had taking placebos had fewer symptoms than the other group. I said this can't be I'm sick for ten years. I take placebo pills and for three weeks. I have no problem whatsoever. At shocking. It's like, I I can't make sense of any of it. I don't understand any of it today on the show. We are going to try to make sense of what happened to Lindau, and we're going to dive deep into the world of placebo to answer the following questions. One. What can the placebo effect health with two? How does it work and three what are its limits? Like is it possible to harness the placebo effect? So that we can stop taking some medicines altogether. When it comes to the placebo effect. There is lots of what? But then vez science.
"bowel syndrome" Discussed on Food for Thought
"Could you just differentiate for our listeners first of all we know I what we need to eat a big variety of foods to help without got diversities really wonderfully explained, what is the difference between IBS and IB d for instance. And what factors do you think really affecting this rise? Okay. So I guess is stands for irritable, bowel syndrome and something. It was called a syndrome, generally and medicine means of people don't know how to define it or what it is. So it's a sort of hodgepodge term by people are trying to group series of vague symptoms together in a way trying to force it into a disease category. And it didn't really exist fifty years ago, and it seems to be very much modern phenomenon and its people are divided about whether it is a new problem or whether it's just people are now more aware of that got some complain. Whereas in the past they put up with it, yet don't really know because no collect that data before. But the certainly do seem to be differences between countries and cultures in it. And it probably number of separate problems that a group together because some people get discomfort. On eating. They get spasms in got.

"bowel syndrome" Discussed on WINT 1330 AM
"Today's actually my birthday a right. Two years. I've been having stomach issue. Nothing really severe. After I eat our have our experience floating. Not so much gaffe or constipation, but I will I'll I'll come rather bloated. And I was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome, and I'm not Medicated where I don't do any. I don't really case my diet doesn't affect my day like so much except for like what I do eat bloated from usually I'll have to you know, unbuckle my belt little bit. Mallorca's wondering, you have any ideas? Guide Harry or or any type of supplements. I might take that could settle my stomach or help out in any way. Whoa. They're table bowel. Here's the cave you've been diagnosed. But you're not Medicated. There's a lot you can do now IBS or any of them the bowel syndromes and all that. 'cause you're tation inflammation. Whatever the article bowel is a real pretty common CVS pretty commonly corrected to and for irritable. Bowel. One of the first things you want to think about is diet and cutting out inflammatory foods, anti inflammatory diet is a key. It's the it's the one you'll find in my book empowering your health. Now, the key to that is. So much of the information that we talk about is about eliminating certain foods, but also about implementing certain foods because food changes everything food can be our best medicine and with IBS gluten is a key. I don't care what anybody tells you gluten is one of the biggest culprits fry Bs now cutting that out you can eat plenty of grains, that they make or foods that are made from flour. That are gluten free. They're making it more and more now to might want to look into some of that, but cutting out gluten take seven and a half weeks to completely eliminate out of the system. So that's first things I understand that. And then you might have an issue with cow's milk, dairy, so cutting that out for period of time might be a smart thing to switch over to goat's milk. Goats milk is the closest molecular structure, we have human mother's milk works phenomenal. So those two hand in hand were very well as far as eliminating in. What could be causing some station. The other is serotonin believe it or not when the brain chemicals that makes you feel good can't be a corporate for IBS. It's a strong link to it Turkey chicken, salmon spinach in veins. Those are all foods that helped raise serotonin levels naturally. Five hundred trip to fan certain supplements, mega three fatty acids and vitamin B six those are all known to. It's got to be careful with some those talk with your doctor because you're taking any medication for anything right now outside of IBS, if you have depression, or if you're dealing.
"bowel syndrome" Discussed on Mark Bell's Power Project
"Of food nutritional biology by chemistry from a nutritional important on these issues and on most issues that we deal with from a medical perspective. I mean, I'm friends with a lot of GI docs, and I have clients with GI issues, whether it's Krones roles should've collided for rural bowel syndrome, and they will go their GI, docs, are brilliant. Well, meaning physicians in the GI docs will say food has no impact on this and the traditional western medicine view on mental health is also the food has no impact on this. Which to me is just what else, you know? Is such a such a misstep? And you know, I think you've seen this. And I know Sean Baker seeing this as you look at meet heels dot com. I mean, the number of people who are writing in was responses to dietary changes like carnivore diet with anxiety or depression is Saturday. And that's one of the things that got me most interested in this or doing any the food is so powerful can't ignore. Yeah. You know, I think it's when you go on a carnivore diet and even just after doing it for two or three days. I mean, you really start to you start to feel way different. And I, you know, I've done like hito style diets and stuff and in the beginning when you go from, you know, burn burn sugar all the time to like kind of transitioning into learning how to utilize fat. It's an interesting transition. It kinda kicks your brain high gear. And you're like, oh, maybe this is what I'm supposed to feel like, and it's a huge transition. But even just two or three days like if the people that are listening to show. Like, you know, I know it's world carnivore month. Forget forget a second about committing to a month. Try to commit to a day or two and see if he could string together a couple of days. Maybe even just try say, you know, I'm going to do that for five days Medusa for seventy this just try, and you'll be it'll it'll blow your mind like, I don't think we maybe have all the information on like why it all works. We're starting to gather more of that seems like there's more people like yourself that have the scientific background to to be able to explain it. Really, well, but the damn thing just works. And we all brought up to believe that fruits and vegetables were kind of the backbone of what we're supposed to be doing. But sometimes those things can be inflammatory, and cause some problems what what are some of the reasons why maybe vegetables aren't aren't great for some of us sometimes well accurately, you said because when I started doing car for three and a half months ago. I notice it within two or three days, maybe within forty eight. Hours. My move was better. I was thinking more clear. I was more emotionally resilient. It was a transition. It was so impressed. It's me. And I thought this is wild. And I'll I'll tell you something else is that when I started Carnivora wasn't doing Kito. I was doing sort of apparently of diet before. And so I was using Honey in the first few days that was in carnivores. So I can't attribute those mental benefits too key tones. He does not know helps clear the mind, right? And so perfect for me. I thought, wow, this is so cool. Like, I've cut out all the plans. I'm not in Kito says because Honey, but my mood is better and more positive or motion resilience what is going on here? And I think that this is such an interesting idea. And so I think that you know, from my perspective, which is hot insists as high interest has ND. I think that we're we're probably dealing with here is immunity, and, you know, this low level, chronic inflammation, that can be trigger in some. People by plants, and I don't think we know how much is triggered in which people which plans, and I don't think we've totally figured out if everybody's sensitive to every single plan. But I think that one of the cool things hardware makes it so simple. You eliminate all the plants people have talked about this before it's like, a a superlative nation diet limited plans. He looked to see how you feel you look to see how hard it simply are addressing response. And I think for a lot of people with anxiety or depression. It was fun really fast. And I've seen this is my clients..
What Can Probiotics Really Do?
"If you've ever wondered how the world might end, then my new podcast is right up. Your alley. It's called the end of the world with Josh Clark. And it's about the very real ways that humans might accidentally wipe ourselves out in the next century or two might it. Be artificial intelligence or a haphazard physics experiment or perhaps in altered virus that escapes from a lamp who knows the one thing that sure is ignoring the risks won't make them go away. So come listen to the end of the world with Josh Clark. You can find it on apple podcasts the iheartradio app or wherever you find your podcasts. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Bogle bond here. What if you could take a pill that would treat depression, constipation, diarrhea eczema, urinary tract, infections and allergies while also preventing cavities and strengthening your overall, immunity, and what if it promised to shield you from the impurities of the world and reestablish a right and correct balance in your body's ecology. First of all everybody settled down. There is no such thing as a pill that does all of that. But to hear some people talk, probiotics might just come close the popularity of products containing friendly live microorganisms has exploded over the past decade at this point. You can walk into almost any grocery store and find probiotics in capsules lozenges. Gum facial toner, and yes, even in pet products. In addition to the more traditional delivery systems, like culture, dairy products yogurt and fermented products, like sauerkraut and Khumbu. Some folks are making a lot of money on these little bacterial helpers. But what are they actually able to do for us? And are they safe? We spoke with Dr Chris Irwin, a dietitian and lecturer in nutrition and dietetic at Griffith university in Queensland Australia. He said that unless you have an extremely poor diet or drink alcohol to excess. There's not a lot of evidence that a probiotic dietary supplement will help your overall health. He said if you're taking probiotics you'll likely. You need to take them every day, and it's best to feed the healthy bacteria with prebiotics. The bottom line is that healthy people are likely to get more benefit from getting regular exercise of waiting smoking or consuming too much alcohol and having a diet rich in foods that increase fiber and natural prebiotics intake like vegetables, fruits and whole grains, rather than consuming a probiotic supplement. However, probiotics might be an effective treatment for specific cases or conditions while there's not a lot of evidence. Supporting the idea that probiotics could help with your ex allergies or dental woes. Sorry, they might actually help people looking to avoid veteran east infections or upper respiratory infections picked up from a cold virus. Other. Studies have found that probiotics can help with digestive issues like irritable bowel syndrome, and may improve the frequency and consistency of your poop. So as a consumer what should you look for in a probiotic? If you want to get the most bang for your buck. Basically, you've got some homework to do. Irwin said a different probiotics. Strains have different effects. So it's important to look for a probiotic supplement that contains the strains of bacteria most likely to match your condition, the dose of bacteria called colony forming units or CFU is also important and should be high enough to meet benefits observed in clinical trials, the short answer here is if someone is looking for probiotic to take gopher something that provides the greatest diversity in bacterial, strains and the highest CFU. Irwin also suggests getting advice from your doctor or dietician for those strains that might be right for you. And making sure you're buying probiotic strains that are refutable and have committed to transparency in scientific research. However that ladder is more easily said than done. A study published in JAMA internal medicine in two thousand eighteen pointed out that there is very little government oversight of factories that manufactured probiotics and the US food and Drug administration or FDA found that about half of the six hundred and fifty factories that manufacture probiotic supplements in the United States were cited for violations most having to do with the product not living up to what was promised on the label. The study also said the probiotics may lead to infections in people with immune deficiencies. Another study published this year in the journal cell suggests some people may be resistant to supplemented probiotic bacteria, and therefore we'll get no benefit from it at all the researchers also investigated whether probiotics can help the gut microbiome bounce back after a round of antibiotics, and they found that though probiotics might have hell. With diarrhea related to the anti-biotics. They seem to have delayed the reconstitution of gut bacteria. Of course, more research is needed to understand just how helpful probiotics are to our overall health, and it's important not to give them more credit than their do. Irwin said. It's unlikely probiotic supplements are dangerous, but I don't think that they're a magic bullet L D people are likely to get more benefit from having a diet rich in vegetables, fruits and whole grains on the other hand if someone has a poor diet and doesn't exercise regularly their digestive bacteria may benefit from probiotic supplements. But they'll likely need to keep taking them to get lasting effects. States episode was written by just windshields and produced by Tyler playing for more on this and lots of other gutsy topics.

"Talk five ninety K. And you're listening to news talk five nine. Doctor doctor there is a doctor in the house. Should we continue to be amazed at the knowledge that is a part of our exchange here. The doctor Ken Cronos traveling into our ears in our mind every week on good day health and a part of our overall focus on your health and wellbeing. There's a lot of that here, and it's appropriate because a lot of people have questions, and as has been said a was having a conversation earlier with a doctor who said talking about irritable bowel syndrome, and how it seems to be more prevalent in women. And then she suggested the reason for it being more prevalent in women is that women go to their doctor more often than men do to seek out answers to questions. Do you find that to be the case in your practice at lake cardiology down in Florida? More women come to you with the hard questions or problems and warned correction than men. Well, in general women, a little bit more than men tend to go to the doctor and often a reason why some married or coupled men do better because the good woman behind them get them to the doctor, but I see pretty close. I'd say probably sixty forty women. But I I see pretty close, even it is do you think that's because of your specialty more people are heart disease cancer that sort of thing, you know, you have cancer. But you know, you know, kind of it's not as easy to recognize cancer symptoms as it is heart skips. Isn't that true? Remember, heart disease is not immense problem. Number one killer of women in America since the nineteen late nineteen eighties has been heart disease, so heart disease, a big problem for women much bigger than cancer breast. So we we see plenty of women. Yeah. All right. So speaking of women, there's some news this week. Dr Ken is noted for his understanding of the information that is usually just doctor speak, and if you were to read some of these journalists, God knows why you would. But if you did keep you up tonight. Oh my God. So anyway, can read them and so two synthesizes the information. So here's something that's important for those of you who are those of you.

"To maybe more serious, chronic conditions, like irritable, bowel syndrome, or chronic food allergies or maybe someone needs support in their psychological emotional health. Maybe someone's trying to break through to their next level of their own spiritual development, and the whole premise of evolutionary herbalism is that we as herbal us have the ability to support people on all levels of their health and wellbeing. So you're needed right. And I think it's important for us to take a step back outside of our own lives and look at the bigger picture of the world right now, which is in chaos, right? And I think it's becoming more and more apparent every day. How much healing is needed out there in the world. And I believe and I'm sure that you do too. If you're here with me. Me that the potency and power of medicinal plants. Have the ability to provide this deeper level of healing that people are seeking out there in the world or that they need and don't even realize that they need it. So the point is is that you're needed. And that brings us to what's holding you back. Right. What's holding you back from being out there and being of service to your family? Your friends your co workers your community or your clientele your patients, if you're working in a clinical practice, there's a lot of scales to being an herbalist. But I think no matter what scale you're at whether just using herbs for yourself or your close relatives or whether you're working in a clinic. It's like what's holding you back from reaching that next level in your work with medicinal plants. And I think this comes back to breaking through. Those things that are preventing you from reaching that next level, which I openly have distilled down to confidence and competent. So I wanna talk about this a little bit today. Because ultimately as herbalists we want to be of service. We want to healers we wanna be of service to the world, and we want to make this world better place. Not just for ourselves not just for our future generations. But for the earth itself for guy and. In the things that are holding us back. Ultimately, those are kind of our own personal internal struggles that we deal with you know, I was just at a conference a few weeks ago. And the speaker was talking a lot about this concept of what he called your inner game. Right. It's like your inner psychology and emotions and how those affect your outer game or your performance out there in the world. How your? Representing yourself out in the world. And if we don't have that inner side of our life, fine tuned in dialed in I e your confidence and competence. Then it's going to be really hard for the outer work that you do in this world to be of integrity and to reach the greatest levels that you that are possible for you. So I believe this all really comes down to starting off with building your competence as an herbalist. Right. And they say, you know, in psychology that confidence and competence are like a feedback loop on one another right that as you develop more competence as you have a deeper level of understanding of the fundamental principles and practices of holistic herbal medicine. That you have the know how you have the knowledge you have the understanding you have the wisdom that will give you the comp confidence. To make yourself available to help someone. Right. And if you don't have that competence, it's hard to be very confident. And conversely, as your confidence grows you start to take on maybe more challenging cases, or you're more open to try to help someone that maybe is outside your comfort zone a little bit. Maybe they come to you with the problem that you've never treated before you've never even heard of before. But because you have faith and belief and trust in the herbal medicines that you work with that you're going to be willing to stretch your competence level to the next stage, and so confidence and competence kind of feed back on one another and one thing I've noticed is that if there's one thing that holds an herbalist back from helping people it's they don't feel confident in themselves. Right. Maybe they feel like they need to take another workshop or read another book or do another online. Program or they need to do whatever it is they need to do. They just feel like this nod enough feeling inside..

"You know they were having dying of appendicitis and other acute charges but today we're gonna really different place and the problem is our medical model evolved during that time when acute challenges were the biggest issue and it was set up to deal with those acute problems but it's not set up to deal with the chronic challenges that we're facing you know that most people are are struggling with things like type two diabetes and obesity and your little bowel syndrome and autoimmune disease these these are the problems of today but our medical model is still built to address the problems of yesterday or rather of the last century so functional medicine is the new model that is specifically designed to prevent and reverse chronic disease and the it does that by addressing the root cause of these diseases instead of just suppressing symptoms so to use an example irritable bowel syndrome now the second leading cause of people missing work it's really up at democ behind the common cold and yet the treatments in conventional medicine are all based on suppressing symptoms so if the patient has diarrhea they'll get a modem or something like that stopped diarrhea they might get an analgesic for the pain or an anti spouse modig for the gas the bloating none of these treatments although they can help a meal it relieve the symptoms which is welcome none of them actually do anything to address the cause of problems and so these patients end up having to take these drugs for the rest of their lives and these drugs often have side effects that require other drugs on that's crazy i didn't know that irritable bowel syndrome was such a huge reason that people stay home from work.
