The Ins and Outs of Elimination Diets
"I question let's keep it super basic as always elimination diets. What is the idea you behind doing an elimination diet? I'm going to say on the word. Elimination it's not to help you go to the bathroom. It's not that kind of elimination. So ideally the process of eliminating foods is I have susie. It's done with the supervision and and assistance of a medical professional and that it's safe and reliable so you determine food allergies and intolerances. That's the idea. I know that many the people on their own just temporarily scrapping what the down to the bare minimum and trying to eat clean and detox. Or what have you so. The basic basic premise is that by removing potentially offending foods and beverages and spices. Whatever you put in your mouth you're starting with a clean slate? And then the handful full of items that are safe you can begin adding them back or a type of food and for a few days see which items prompt the symptoms to reappear. Okay is who would benefit from this kind of diet is it. I would everyone. Are there people that don't need to worry about this diet. Surprised in in in looking at it that it's not just food allergies which I think we're going to get into but also there's so. There are different names of specific elimination diets. Hunch the autoimmune protocol and the Gut Psychology Syndrome Diet and the specific carbohydrate diet so I think it would be very targeted. has to whom it's going to apply to such as so the autoimmune protocol well that sounds more applicable to someone say with rheumatoid arthritis someone with that kind of condition that they have to manage on the other hand. There's the whole thirty that we've mentioned in a previous podcast. And you can kind kind of think of that challenges and Elimination Diet too. Because you're committing describing things for a period of time and it it does have a reintroduction face to kind of understand this little. Is this kind of what obviously to young children now. Is this kind of what we do with young children where you start introducing them to foods and you kind of you're like okay. I'm GonNa give him something with peanut butter and you're going to see how they do for a week or two hit the nail on the head. Zakariya weaning them off from breast milk or formula. It's what you do with solid food. It's like okay. We'll try rice. Cereal do that for a few days. Canal will try a little bit of green beans. Try that for the weekend and you just do like one in food at a time and make sure that they don't have an allergic response so it's very similar to solid food interaction with interesting and just a little tidbit it For Gloria out there. Today you tried mango for the first time. So and you get okay. Well how how long do you typically have to wait to gauge to see whether you're intolerant allergic is a pretty quickly or is it like you introduce a food and then you kinda gotta wait. Wait a couple of weeks before you move onto the next one. Well I thought it would be days or weeks and everybody's system and sensitivity is different so I asked a colleague and Jenny ask you a balanced alands fitness and nutrition in Georgia. said that client should feel better in ten days if they've eliminated the right foods so she runs blood. Work to create a customized plan. And so that way you know she can see exactly that they're getting the right items out and usually she says about fifty percent improvement in symptoms in the first two weeks which is kind of market? You know if you're gonNA commit to doing something he says and it Kinda go you want to be able to see that benefit right. Okay so I feel like for kids. It's easy to you know. Bricks slowly introducing them to new things that they've never had before but to eliminate something from our diet and then slowly reintroduce it. How is that on our digest? Is this some kind of a different game. Plan there so I would say that overall on the contrary most elimination diets. It's our intended to relieve gastrointestinal issues. Bloating gas so that's what the gap diet that Gut Psychology Syndrome Diet. Why it would do? But I've also heard from some people that say initially you know if they're doing the extreme elimination phase that they can get stomach aches from their extreme hunger so you could get a short term negative and then if you're eliminating certain foods you could get constipated just as as if you're replacing other foods with something you don't normally eat so much of raw vegetables runs. It's an adjustment period. And so what are some of the typical reasons people we kind of. You mentioned some used the elimination diet. I mean I've definitely heard allergies. That's one of the big ones is. You're trying to find out what you're tolerant too. But I've also heard. Is it like pain like maybe. That's another reason to to inflammation so again. Another one of my colleagues so Tammy Broderick of have healthy feet nutrition in southern California told me that elimination diets helped break. The cycle of chronic inflammation. So Gluten. Dairy sugar could could be the top three food offenders and gluten in particular is now being tied to like leaky Gut Syndrome but mother inflammatory suits could be soy and corn oil. Processed meats needs fried food. Alcohol Sodas and I didn't know that because I know in Allergies Brittany. The big eight are the common ones like egg and tree nuts peanuts peanuts wheat. Soy Milk fish shellfish those are the ones that typically have to be on a label knowledge statement. But they're all these other things can affect planet pain and inflammation as well. This time of day it would really help somebody who has maybe say like Crohn's disease or is like has it is or just finding out and finding a way to Yeah I. I won't even touch those because I'm not the digestive an expert so I'm going to Pass on that one but I know there's a lot of autoimmune Kinda in that realm exactly so it helps it helps you find what works best for your body and it's kind of like just to reiterate what I think we mentioned before but like this is meant to. You're not eliminating like one food food at a time and seeing if you feel better not eating it you're laminating several and then reintroducing them and seeing how you react once you reintroduce them catch food reintroduced is basically a challenge and so you're looking to see those adverse reactions in a few days which is where the commitment that consistency and logging in a diary you know comes in so you can't do this half half way you can't do it willy. Nilly or while you're trying to travel and have all these you you have to pay attention and so it's like. Oh well if I I feel heartburn or I feel this you know that it wasn't from stress or it wasn't from You know crazy sleep that you had or whatever so you're just really paying attention to each food and your good and your system and your anything your skin Dan.
Recreational marijuana drives down synthetic opioid deaths by a THIRD, study claims
"Let's talk about the issue that has worked to get the some Democrats and Republicans across this country and it is the legalization first of medical marijuana and then in some states it actually propelled itself to the legalization of the recreational use of marijuana through initiative and referendum and man the effect that it's having a pretty amazing there is new research out that says recreational we'd use could lead to a twenty to thirty five percent down turn in the number of opioid deaths that's it that's incredible I could see that twenty to thirty five percent I could see that because remember I had the personal experience two times in my life of having to use pain killers to ward off to us I mean numbing pain they just wouldn't leave it so after I got shot with the five hollowpoint bullets on the orders of the gadis to the Gambino said the back in that cabin June in nineteen ninety two I was on morphine for quite some time without that it just would have been unbearable unbearable and yet you because you could dispense the morphine into yourself you had a little quicker next you head to bed you a basically kept pumping a pump in it a you can like a vegetable you weren't interested in anything you know how I love to follow the news and sports I was interested in what is going on in the world long was this on and off for about two years while because I went in for two different operations of first one had no choice at save my life but then I had to have reverse a reversal operation you know to get rid of the colostomy bag and some of the other procedures that they took and I got to tell you what that is that was worse than the first operation because you knew you were going to get it and it was painful so I had a deal with the morphine effect and then weaning myself off the morphine but worst was when I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease have to having colitis and Ely ideas the pain was just nonstop day in day out they had me on oxy code own hillbilly heroin then they had me on morphine then they had me on fentanyl fentanyl ten times stronger than morphine himself and I must tell you that it wasn't until I was able to qualify for medical marijuana that I found something that not only I was able to deal with my knowledge of my reflux it had a calming effect and more importantly it did eventually deal with the pain yeah and you're not the only person obviously who says this which is why there have been there's really been a change I mean even even judge Jeanine Pirro is now involved in the medical marijuana world I think she's on she's on some advisory board yeah so I mean this is a you know it's it's becoming a lot more prevalent in today's society and for people like you I mean you were able to wean yourself off of the other stuff and get on the medical then general one was in the city it I mean I goals who cold Turkey sometimes and I was just like old man your body is just cycle wracked in pain you keep feeding yourself because a lot of the times issue prescription says take two a day one in the morning one in night but you start self medicate yeah and you do get you fork and it does feel great and then you want to feel like that all the time and then it's like pain in place well the pain is enormous and then all of a sudden you have this plagiarized effect but that goes away quickly you need more and you're talking about you're talking about medical legalize medical marijuana so these opioid they did this study the university of Massachusetts in it they analyzed opioid overdose deaths and the number of deaths fell in states where they had the legalize medical or recreational marijuana the effects were great as listen to this one where when recreational marijuana access gave more people access to dispensaries so the more dispensaries the higher the chances are you will not have it's like when you half your hunt for a seven eleven the more seven elevens the more times you can get your fix this for picture right the less seven elevens and all of a sudden you have the junk no I make a lot of sense if you have these legal outlets where they sell the recreational use of marijuana which means is quality control the state and the local community to making some money on the taxes and you taking it either the hands of the black market that makes all the sense in the world now where are most of the dispensers I mean I know for instance in California you can get them there in Venice Venice is a kind of a it's a highfalutin California California is way ahead of us in making it not only easy to access but invisible locations still in New York state out of sight out of mind in New Jersey it's getting better on the Murphy but a lot of its out of sight out of mind it's gonna be a lob rate the way any other business would be a lot right but don't aren't there more of these legal dispensaries and sort of the rougher neighborhoods predominantly the USA would like that because remember a lot of towns villages him borough say okay we're not opposed to legalization of the recreational use of marijuana just not on our town yeah exactly so the poorer communities say okay we'll house that is long as we get a bigger cut of the tax dollars so that's I guess I mean I guess that's a good thing because a they'll get the cut but H. B. they'll also have all of these medical of all these dispensary it like for instance dad over good access Denver's best known because you can go on the main drag Colfax and the state capital is right here the cathedral is right they have lots of commerce lots of activity and you see these marijuana shops but then you'll see it also in some industrialized areas where wow it's not globally around other than factories and wooden you know pallets in a waiting for trucks to come pick it up and they seem to do well and to me it's sort of like if we can help get people off of the opioid switch to solve problems such as some people to shake at such a killer
Medical marijuana now legal in Louisiana
"The Louisiana department of agriculture and forestry has announced that it is cleared the final medical marijuana product has passed all testing is is cleared for immediate release to the medical marijuana pharmacies and joining us on the line is Louisiana agriculture and forestry commissioner Mike straying to talk about this Mike welcome to the show hello no how are you doing today doing great doing great you guys announced that the marijuana tincture formulation is available now today Tuesday yes are we cleared the first batch of finals up final product in other words the product that's actually going to be patient last Thursday afternoon and so it is moving to patients but that started you know yesterday and of course the day it should be getting to the pharmacies and so you know we we clear that it did the final testing and we tested now we the first batch was forty seven hundred and sixty five units which in other words each vial has you know he is considered a unit and so that is on its way we expect our to clear the second batch which will be about forty three hundred units on the by Friday this Friday morning and so that's the timetable for that and of course there are successful and it is grown and processed in you know in the production and a batch system and so you know we've cleared it and what you know we don initially we tested the extract which we call the matrix but it's the extract and then the extract is then placed into a solution form and then we trusted that you know would you be SL Ellis you to look at THC concentrations CVT concentrations and also make sure that there weren't any contaminants and then the final solution we tested to make sure that the first bottle all the way to the forty seven hundred and sixty fifth bottle all the same so the whole genius and then we tested and certified the THC level the CD levels in them as well as to make sure that the or no bacterial contamination that you know what could have happened during the bottling process so we take in a sample random samples and then we you will open the vials we take those samples and when we run a battery of tests on them and the first batch we had we ran twenty five separate all units twenty five separate samples were tested and cleared and the second batch about twenty three that's all mathematical model that we use based on you know the the science laboratories of how many and how to do that but it's a random testing and so that they have cleared and the first batch as a matter of flavored the lecture and that product is should be and the date and the pharmacist my day I'm there's been much criticism about this process but this is what you expected in any type of liquid form of medicine that that hits you know that that is put into the stream of commerce correct well you know normally what we would call my list you don't look at the basic kind cable our legislation was passed in really June of twenty fifteen became a law in July of twenty fifteen in June of twenty sixteen so as we go full year I was sure I said I gave us written notice that their intent to be the licensee and on August twenty sixteen southern gave us a written statement that they again we're confirming that they were gonna be licenses production so they had the first right of refusal right and so he was in the fall of twenty seventeen that issue sign with GPS Alan southern sign with their first contractors they began Ellis you began building facilities are getting the building billing cycle sell these sorting all this out you know early in the spring of twenty eighteen and you know and just basically get out of the final facility bear horde facility wasn't finished no really until may or June of this year and so when you look at this you know where the this was done on the FDA it was taken eight to ten years the help from an election to final probably two to three years because clinical trials and really you have to stop when they look at when they started construction of buildings and just design a building coming sore from design construction harmony all of those things plus satisfying the state law as to suitability develop in their standard operating procedures you know putting the manufacturing facility yeah this is a growing marijuana in a in a hot house so this is making a pharmaceutical product that began in earnest in the spring of twenty eight so really in two years the under the state rules we've done what would have taken a katana under federal I think a lot of people really kind of you this is a cottage industry as though this was going to be a mom and pop kind of thing and when you have your facts and facilitate naps lately and I think you know that that was a misnomer from day one and it ended in I think there is actually good reason for because when you look into that other states there have been a number of batches that have been denied in other states for contaminants pesticides mold they have found all kinds of foreign substances there that and as a result the regulators had to reject the product right and so you know what we did we don't work very hard looking at what was going on in other states as well as good manufacturing practices are not only with marijuana but any type of pharmaceutical products so when you look at our first stage of testing we test the matrix and it is tested for things that we will have to look for heavy metals we test for pesticides I we test against for any type of Solomon improper books obstructions in a week that's from a variety of compounds you know in the initial product and then secondarily one week after that initial product is then processed into a solution then we test the THC levels of CVD levels also checking to make sure that no contaminants to there and then church here in the final stage you know we test our again to make sure that it's off that it's all the same reconfirm the THC MCV levels also check for salmonella E. coli east rolled my contractions those sorts of things so that when the patient opens it up we know that they have a safe product and you have to do this every step of the way because as as you know if you remember years ago when they were compounding injectable steroids and remember when they got contaminated how many people got sick from that yeah and well I mean we have to be very very very careful that that nothing leaves because you know I'm responsible along with the LSU GB sciences and southern and I layer of you know we're responsible to make sure that this product gets to the patient in a form that is not contaminated and about will not give out that will not harm them end up like this a base formulation this is something that it can be modified at the pharmacy level in different elixirs meaning as I notice in the article he said that the product can cost between ninety and two hundred dollars a bottle at the pharmacy depending on the formulation yes and so when you look at the the formulation here you know with the the first one with that there have is it's a T. H. C. rich one US one G. H. C. perceive the mother was a hundred fifty milligrams of each box and a bottle then they have a CVT rich twelve hundred milligrams a CD to sixty milligrams CH C. R. so then you know the pharmacist you know I'm a pharmacist has the option to modify this deluded compound or or whatever and the thing that we know is that you know different patients will will be affected differently and it comes on the disease state your trading so you have one you have the physicians and there are eighty seven I think positions as on record of oxygen that are allowed to make these recommendations they will make a recommendation to the pharmacist based on the concentration and the type of product that that they believe the patient needs and then the pharmacist will then you know make sure that's the formula that the patient needs and we do know from a lot of literature that they're you know especially in CH see if they have different effects on different patients and that's why you know specialist for off with a low dose and then you know work the way forward so you get the desired almost the pharmaceutical effect for the disease being treated same same strategy that's taken in a bunch of other different types of medicines the for treatments as well right absolutely and especially when you're dealing with this type of compound get out of the lower the dose is the better you know but what breeding a variety of diseases intractable pain on in college cases cancer HIV aka CAC feel seizure disorders epilepsy MS multiple sclerosis fastest of the severe muscle spasms Parkinson's Bacolod posttraumatic stress disorder autism spectrum disorder Crohn's disease and muscular dystrophy and it is and as a regular looking at directly at eighty four doctors that are able to recommend Mike when so Dick have we studied whether or not there's going to be enough supply for the demand well the initial discussions we had it you know what and again the board of pharmacy was to try to calculate how much plant matter we need that will make the amount of in the pharmaceutical use we would need based on the disease states that would being treated and that being said that's what the initial discussions of size and scope came about now since then of course and contents with that legislatures you see is adding additional on diseases that can be treated and so what where we're at now I wish you is in the production system they are processing and its batch process we will expect to clear again a second batch for distribution to the pharmacist our Friday morning Friday of this week that'd be about forty three hundred doses and then very shortly there after it in a short period of time they will have more batches that will be available again to the public at the same time southern is coming on line several weeks ago they planted there first you know seeds and of course they are ramping up rapidly and by this fall we expect of southern will have on the server products on the street and so it really depends on you know how many patients come to the pharmacy is that what you know how many people will buy the product what the effect will be by the patient find the products you as to the fact on their particular disease condition that they're trading and then I you know if if everything is successful then we would expect that the man would grow and they will have to increase production I own a ongoing basis to meet that demand and we're not we're not aware of in the commercial insurance that actually covers this treatment yet our our our week as far as I know there is no commercial insurance that will cover this because it is not and after the A. regulated drug under the state under the state and so that will probably be a discussion that we were here in the state legislature this year I'm sure we will have that discussion as well also as you know this is right now is in any election reform and the legislature did pass on some law that would allow for eighty eight metered dose inhaler that's not a thing that's not smoking it's one of the compound is placed into an inhaler similar to what you have for delivery of medicines for asthma or other type of you know the diseases and the reason for that is that you can get a more rapid response in the southern alternative delivery system our versus having to take it all away right final thoughts Mike well you know we're all been working hard we can continue to work hard at this point we have to make sure that the production system stays in place we're trying to get LSU and southern both at full production and everyone has worked very hard to get this in place also that they'll be no doctor shopping because there is a reporting mechanism were also keeping records on the effect of the drugs as well if there are any type of country indications and that is gonna be studied by the board of medical examiners the board of pharmacy my office and you know the other medical professionals well thank you for the update we really appreciate it and I know there are a lot of people that are excited about having this opportunity in order the treat those listed ailments as you so adequately were able to recount far better than I would have but I can tell you and we thank you for your
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.
What to say to someone afraid of vaccinating their kids
"Is the third and final clip. We're gonna share here on curiosity daily from our conversation with virologist, Paul Dupre. He's the director of the center for vaccine research at the university of Pittsburgh and a professor of micro biology and cellular genetics. We had a great conversation with Paul about his latest research and some of the science behind vaccines, and you can actually find our full conversation for free on our patriarch page at patriotair dot com slash curiosity dot com, all spelled out. But right now, we'd like to share what Paul told us or Ashley passed along a question from one of our anonymous listeners, what would you say to someone who isn't sure whether it's a bigger risk to let their kid be unvetted. Rated or to vaccinate their kid, maybe because they're afraid of additives and preservatives, and may be heavy metals are thing that talked about a lot that might be in vaccines. What's all was clear is it's always much more risque to get the disease than it is to get the vaccine it's all was much much safer to be vaccinated than to take the chance of getting the disease. But that's where that's where I have significant sympathies for parents. Because remember the parents are only trying to do the right thing for the kids every partner wants to do the best for their child. So therefore parents. For reassurance. And parents look beyond maybe the CDC website, which gives really good information by high vaccines of helped and move into other parts of the internet were sometimes the level of rigor. Sometimes the fact skittle bit blurred. You know, the most important thing is facts modern all of the science speaks to the fact that vaccines work. And that the government and CDC and clinicians would not be vaccinating PayPal with something which they believed was on safe. I mean, no clinician would do that the clinicians. That's their patients so common. Practice says that safe all of science says it see if it's always more risky to get the disease. There are many additives that have been in vaccines that are no longer in vaccines began even the evidence to suggest that things like mercury in vaccines was a problem. It's very very tenuous. And it certainly peels into insignificance whenever you look at what a one thousand chance of your child. Diane from a disease would be that's a big big difference in risk if you get infected by the natural wild virus in real life. But again, I just totally understand. Why people want to do the right thing? And then it's backed a little bit of the conversation that we have at the start. You know, this is really hard to get what's virus puts vaccine. What does this all mean? People again, it it's difficult for for people who just don't have that concept of what vaccine is more comes from and what sort of sales where did these sales come from? And what Senate and all of these questions of people have? And I think that those are really judgment questions. I think that it's absolutely critical for scientists who work in these viruses for clinicians who vaccinate people with these vaccines to be able to explain them. Why they believe their c-? If why they they believe that the vaccine is is worth taking and why the vaccines based on the evidence from the past. Why vaccines have have have made such a phenomenal contribution? But I think the day is go on of been able to say to people who walk into. Physician's office. I want to vaccinate you and the person has questions and just saying oh well trust me. I'm a doctor just do it with I having a conversation with being able to explain why they're useful. I think that people do deserve answers. But I think that people have to also lesson to those answers from professionals who really have worked on those viruses for years who've vaccinated many many children, and they have to look at the scientific data, which is absolutely conclusive in terms of Maizels not causing autism Maizels not causing Crohn's disease. Measles, not being linked to multiple sclerosis Basil's, not being all these unsubstantiated claims that end up in the literature that are shown to be false. But because they grab hold of people's imaginations, and and people want to do the right things for their kids. They laid to people genuine people have genuine questions. And I think that that's where we have to be ready to explain why we believe that vaccines are important on why vaccines work again, that's where going to sources, which are wrapping -able is. So so important whenever you're you. Don't do your own research for me researches as what we do the laboratory as what we do in terms of the scientific method, but you do find I what has been published looking at other people's research. And again, it's very very clear that vaccines are not causing. What has
Cryptocurrency investors locked out of $190m after exchange founder dies
"Investors in a Canadian crypto currency exchange. Eat a bit of a bind because the person with the password to accounts value to one hundred ninety million dollars in the US. He died in India in December. The problem is he's the only person that has access to the password. These accounts. It's Quadri gut squad. Riga Quadri get the name of the company. He died of complications of Crohn's disease in December nights, traveling in India to set up an offered on orphanage orphanage, I know how to speak anyway, apparently, he's the only person who has access to the bulk of the crypto currency funds, which means that one hundred fifteen thousand investors could be out there money. Well, that's interesting. Like, there's gotta be a way though, like where where does not well, where's the site that he needs to where does that live like the whoever owns that Citre? Why can't they just like cracking for for the supreme court says that this guy had the only password to the so-called cold-storage accounts a form of savings containing Bitcoin's deposited by one hundred fifteen thousand investors, he left no record of the password security experts consulted by the company have been unable to crack the accounts, according to the publication the filing seeks legal protection from investors while tries to rich. Retrieve the bitcoins. Crypto currency form of digital currency. Overseen by a decentralized network of computers around the world. They must be stored on servers and can be kept in hot wallets for media transactions or cold storage as part of a digital savings account to protect them from hackers. So this guy's got the only password so they can unlock them.

"So when did you discover that you are when did you find out that you had Crohn's disease? It would have been. Like new years of two thousand twelve two thousand thirteen and how old were you? Then I would have been eighteen. Okay. So this is before you got to college. Now. This was this was. Yeah. Middle college for those that don't know what Crohn's diseases. How would you describe to somebody? Because after reading your story, I had a data girl in college the head Crohn's disease looking back. I wish I. Boyfriend sympathetic enough at all to what she was going through. I think you had much worse that she did they'll give myself that. But after read about oh shit. That's what grows these is. Just keep pumping you go there. You like save it a little bit there because. Yeah, I if you're listening to this. I apologize college. But contain you know, we're not our best selves. I think everybody in the room right now would agree with that. Currencies like the easiest way to describe it. It's an inflammatory disease in your house, enter my gut, basically, I I'm infected in my terminal illion, which is the basically the the connection between your small and large intestine. And what is your dad? Do. He was he is retired. All. Let's like is there. Not incredible irony in that know, it was a it. If you want to get into very ironic story is he so he's very accomplished doctor. He's also he's a stud. He's really really good. He's really smart. He's very respected in his in his industry in his in his practice. Here in Orlando for about thirty years, but he had only treated patients in like any other hospital bed or a consultation office, or whatever it may be. He's never actually seen currencies play out in everyday life. So when I had been I I g- nosed a eyedrops ultimately about thirty thirty five pounds as a eighteen year old what was caught so going growing up? It just didn't have the same effect as it did. I guess starting freshman year of college or did things get worse for you around that time or would you do with this? There are three main causes for Krenz. So you have stress as a big component. If you're predisposed to it. So there's some some gene in my body. That says, hey, you are either going to have Crohn's you will get Krones or you are likely to get crowds and then getting sick. So my would have been my scene. New year of high school during prom. And as some listeners may know like the sage valley junior mutational the tournament for all junior. Golfers ahead salmonella. Oh, yeah. Just get that eating raw chicken here in Orlando at a local chicken tenders that I'm guessing you don't go to any teaches you to knock get grilled chicken chicken or so there you go. Yes. Exactly. But so I had some dirt and senior prom and sage valley, which was in my mind, like the worst thing they could ever happen. Right. You have they say valid unbelievable job of, you know, providing for me and make sure they built a fake toilet for me and the head to doctors or doctors. But. What you call says medical staff or two two people medical staff fall in me around just to make sure if I had an episode or if I had I passed out then they'd have been there for me.

It becomes a very hopeless thing. Very hopeless thing. You can't afford certain drugs. You may not be aware of this. Maybe the drug companies ought to do a better job telling you. You can apply. And they have programs and they spend billions and billions of dollars a year on this. I'm not a special pleader. I'm just telling you. I know this is a fact. I don't wanna get too personal. But I'm telling you that this is a fight. That we're going to have to win. And we're on the unpopular side of this. I'm well aware of. Look here in the hill newspaper Mitt Romney warned pharmaceutical company executives Thursday that changes coming to the industry. In a short interview in the capital Romney described to the hill. His message to the closed-door meeting of the pharmaceutical research and manufacturers America board of directors pharma change is going to come to pricing. In the pharmaceutical industry, and that they are wise to be part of the solution as opposed to opposing change on what that is is a threat. It's basically telling this industry. You need to come up with your own poison pill. Now Romney is a member of the Senate health education labor and pensions committee, which has jurisdiction of a wide array of healthcare issues, including drug pricing. He's not yet introduced any drug pricing legislation. But said it would be something. I'll be looking at down the road. Now, I have to tell you how in the hell can senators set drug prices. This is why I tell you that the Republican party is a soft Progressive Party. Just remember progressivism really came into this country in a big way under the Republicans. Particularly Theodore Roosevelt. And of course, the Democrats have gone nuts with it. But the Republicans didn't abandon it was Coolidge who fought and Reagan who fought it. Virtually every other Republican has been a saw progressive. Of course, we're going to have to look at pricing. We're gonna have to look at price controls. We're going to have to look at importing. Generics from overseas and so forth. And so on. It'll kill innovation. Absolutely. Kill it. And why? Mark the prices are too high. I kept remembering during the Obama debates. They said we spend seventeen percent of GDP. On medical and health care. Seventeen percent. And I thought to myself. What else would we spend it on? What else should we spend it on? What else should we spend seventeen percent of our GDP? On private sector money. If not on our health quality of life for ourselves, and our families, isn't that the point of life to begin with what else we supposed to spend it on this program that program another program that some knucklehead comes up with. I'm just pointing it out. Also this week. A hearing when Senate finance committee chairman Chuck Grassley threatened to force drug company executives to testify. President trump.

According to the book of Matthew chapter, two wise men. Followed a bright star in the east of Bethlehem to where Jesus had been born and presented him with gifts of gold frankencense and Moore during the Christmas season depictions of this event, Argub it quits in American culture, decorating, churches, and shopping, malls alike. But don't let the shiny tinsel and festive candidates distract you from our question today. What exactly are frankencense and mirror? Both frankencense are derived from tree sap or gum resin and are prized for their lowering fragrances frankencense is a milky white resin extracted from species of the genus bus. We Leah which thrive in arid cool areas of the Arabian peninsula, east Africa and India the finest and most aromatic of the species is bus willia- sacra, a small tree that grows in Somalia, Oman and Yemen, these plants which grow to a height of about. Sixteen feet or five meters have papery bark sparse branches of paired leaves and flowers with white petals and a yellow or red center murder is a reddish resin the comes from species of the genus come four, which are native to northeast Africa. And the adjacent areas of the Arabian peninsula. Come a foreign Mira a tree commonly used in the production of Moore can be found in the shallow. Rocky soils of Ethiopia Kenya. Amman Saudi Arabia and small it boasts shiny branches was sparsely that grow in groups of three and can reach a height of nine feet or about three meters. The process for extracting, the sap of these trees is essentially identical harvesters make a longitudinal cut in the tree's trunk which pierces gun resin reservoirs located within the bark the sap slowly uses out from the cut and drips down the tree forming tear-shaped droplets, they're left to harden on the side of the tree. These beans are collected after two weeks people in east Africa and the Arabian peninsula, had produced frankencense and Merv for some five thousand years for much of this time these. Medic resins were the region's most important commodity with a trade network that reached across Africa, Asia and Europe today. Demand for frankencense and Moore has subsided a bit, but numerous Chinese Greek Latin and sanskrit texts reminders of their past importance frankencense and Moore were desired for personal religious and medicinal use in a time before daily bathing people would use the sweet smoke from the resins to make themselves. Smell better. Egyptian women would mix frankencense ash into their I shadow these substances were also widely used in religious ceremonies and burials, according to the Greek writer here notice Egyptians used both frankencense and myrrh in preparation of animals sacrifices and human mummies Jews incorporated them into their religious ceremonies by the third century, BC and Christians by the fourth century, CE the residents also had medical uses in the papyrus Ebbers from fifteen hundred BC priests recommended both resins for the treatment of wounds other ailments. They were once reported to cure included, hemlock poisoning leprosy were. Terms snake bites? Diarrhea plague scurvy and even bald this the high demand for frankencense and Moore created a booming trade in the Middle East lasting several hundred years in the first century, CE around the height of this trade. Plenty the elder claims that Arabia produced approximately one thousand six hundred eighty tonnes about fifteen hundred metric tonnes a frankencense and around four hundred forty eight tons or four hundred metric tons of mir- each year, one of the most important trade centers surrounded and a waste and modern day. Southern Oman this outpost exported frankencense across best Petya India and China for about three hundred BC e to the third century. See the ruins of the settlement remain as UNESCO world. Heritage site known as the land of frankencense, clearly frankencense and Moore were widely available when the wise men visited the baby Jesus around five BC and would have been considered practical gifts with many uses the expensive resins were symbolic as well. A frankencense which was often burned symbolized prayer rising to the heavens like smoke. While mirror, which was often used in bombing symbolized death. So scholars think that frankencense was presented to the infant Jesus to symbolize his later role as a high priest for believers while Mur symbolized, his later, death and burial frankencense and Moore may not be as popular as they once were. But they're still used today in some ways that you might not expect their common ingredients in modern, perfumes, and cosmetics. Continuing a tradition that's lasted years. Scientists are finding new uses for the substances as well. Recent studies suggest that frankencense or its extracts may help intriguing asthma.

"crohn disease" Discussed on KQED Radio
"Is fresh air. And if you're just joining us, my guest is rob done author of the new book never home alone about the surprising ecosystem of gazillions of bacteria, fungi and insects that live in our homes and escape our detection. He's a professor in the department of applied ecology at North Carolina State university. Let's talk about fungi. You say walls are full of nutrients for them. What are some of the more surprising parts of houses and apartments that fungi can eat fungi and houses are mix because on the one hand if you go into your kitchen and open your refrigerator, many of your food things have fungi in them that helped to make the food themselves. And so you have these sort of useful food associated fungi. You have them in your beer, you have them in your bread. But then as you as you move away from the kitchen, you also get fungi that are just sort of drifting in and so we've found more kinds of fungi that drift into houses than there are named kinds of fungi in North America. Which which is partially just a reflection of how ignorant we still are about the biological world around us that there's more fungal life in houses than we've yet. Even associated with any name, much less. Good understanding. But then if you focus in on particular habitats in the home, you see different fungi. And so if you look in your salt shaker, there are fungi associated with the ability to live in extreme salt environments. But the one place that funds you actually start to pose problems is in your walls. And so it's been known for a while that if your house gets wet there's suddenly a bunch of kinds of fungi that show up kind of miraculously out of nowhere and grow super quickly. And one of those is this toxic black mold that people worry a lot about. But interestingly, although lots of money is made I'm doing a Bateman of that mold. Nobody had really figured out what was going on with this basic biology until a few years ago. When a scientists named burger to Anderson started to try to figure out win that mold shows up in houses where has it come from. And we'd found in our studies have houses that let me look at the dust in houses that mold is present. But it's actually quite rare. But when when house gets wet it's almost always there and how does it right in? And what beer gets in new is that that fungus is it spores or too heavy to just float in through the window. And so that wasn't what was happening. And so she started to wonder whether it. It was actually coming in building materials themselves. And so this is one of the most fascinating stories of fungi in our homes is this this question of whether we're inadvertently favoring some kinds of fungi. We really don't want. What she did was to look at brand new drywall right from the factory to figure out in that drywall. Are there already some fungi, and she was able to show that that toxic black mold along with several other fungi, basically, come preloaded in your drywall. And so then they wait in your drywall for months or years or however long it takes for the drywall to get wet. And then once the drywall gets wet. They can eat your house from bottom to top with great, joy and. A little bit of laughter. I think. You know, there's a lot of construction going on in Philadelphia where where I live and driving past buildings as they're being constructed. And I'm not talking about the high rises here. But like the few stories high kind of buildings the wooden frame is sitting out in the elements for pretty long amount of time. And like they're soaking rain sometimes day after day, and I always wonder like doesn't the would kind of start to arrive before the home is even built on its exposed to rain like that. Yeah. That's a a great question for sure species are colonizing that would while it sitting there, and they're colonizing the wood when it sits in the lumber yard too so long as it eventually gets dry. It's not going to rot very much in that short window while it's being built, but will accumulate the spores of whichever fund. And then just the bacterial cells that are colonizing during that time period. And so sets the stage for what might happen years down the road. It's a good example of why it's so hard to study these things because you know, which fungi we find in a home might be partially influenced by what happened there would fifty years ago fungi, and I'm I'm not gonna say fungi anymore unless they fungi. So while we're on the subject of fungi. Heat and air conditioning systems, which are moist can read a lot of stuff. What are some of the surprises that you and other scientists have found growing in h fax systems? Well, another way to think about that question is to ask. So we often are working with dust. And so we're often trying to work sort of forensically backwards to figure out which things determine what we find living in the dust of a home. And when we look at it that way, one of the biggest facts is whether or not you have a dog, but another one of the consistent effects is whether or not you have an h back system. And so if you have an H back system, there's a set of Mike ribs, h vac system seem to favor, and they're not species, we know a ton about, but we we know that we can predictably find them in houses that are using their H back system a lot. And when you when you turn on your heat or air conditioning, and you smell some smell comes out of burst of smell. Yep. That's actually those microbes that are set up in the back system doing a little exhaling a little bit. That's right engine conditions. Yeah. It's just a little breathing out. Is that a bad thing? If you smell that like in your car, or at home, I think for the most part now for people who are immuno-compromised everything changes, but for the average person with a healthy immune system. It's just another kind of exposure you're getting every day. I think the bigger issue than than which things you are exposed to is how we've changed which species you aren't exposed to. And so we see far more health consequences from kids that fail to be exposed to good microbes that they need than we do from people who are being exposed to some additional h back microbes, for example. So what does that get back to get back to homes that are too well scrubbed? Yeah. Know the homes were trying to build now we're trying to make them more and more like the space station, and some of my colleagues recently studied this the microphone in the space station and more or less looks like a mix between a bathroom and a kitchen. It's almost all human associated microbes and things associated with food and a lot of apartments. Now looked like that too. And when that's the case, we've essentially removed all the exposures that kids and families were once getting to microbes associated with plants microbes associated with soil, and that transitions happened in the last hundred years really rapidly. And we're seeing a whole suite of auto immune disorders, including allergies and asthma. But also Crohn's disease inflammatory bowel all of which seemed to be associated in one way or another with losing exposures to those microbes we used to encounter every day. My guest is rob Dunn author of the new book never. Home alone about the micro organisms and insects living in our homes.

Maybe Kim, if you don't wanna kid. After a thorough brushing of your teeth. Brush my teeth because I don't believe in Floride.

Okay, that urine is urine is all over the place. Countless times Cherif p is in the string either. If it's in this thing. Carey of voice said the wrong thing. They also didn't use that.

I go to a lot of these anti-aging conferences now and are in any D. And stem cells are probably two of the biggest things that anti-aging dachshund folks and a lot of these conferences of talking about, but but you know, stem cells. I think that's a horse has been kicked a death. You know, I've talked about stem cells a lot, but it's interesting there's there's one other category in my research for this book that I found really interesting, and that was a profound improvement in rodent life span with fecal. Transplants with actual bacterial replenishment, especially in your Shelvin sewin- should up your ass now? No, I'm not. I'll get to that. He's eating ice with issues like crust, clustered difficile seat of a seal, you know, seems to cause a decrease in life span, but by replacing colonic bacteria with with some kind of extra fecal matter from someone else. There appears to be some kind of an immune modulating effect. Now, even though there's clinics now like the tame out clinic in Britain, there are websites where you can purchase stool from a healthy donor. Have it shipped you and some pretty straightforward videos about how to do your own at home fecal transplant. The Paul underwear I would. I would rather like eat a lot of really good prebiotics and take care of my gut and hopefully keep my gut to the point where I'm not getting classrooms have so. But if you if you testing he did have it, it might actually be prudent to do something like a fecal transplant therapy. But what I find more interesting and this is something I started doing after seeing some. The data on this working very, very similarly from a longevity standpoint in terms of immune system modulation and gut health is this whole old friends hypothesis. The fact that we live in this Oltra clean culture with antibacterial hand. So, and you know, super clean hospitals and antibiotics, and you don't want your your dog to kiss your kid. God forbid. And so what happens is you see a decrease in beneficial bacteria in the immune system, becoming stronger in response to germs and bacteria. And so a lot of people now they're eating fermented foods and they're laying their kids go to petting zoos and play with farm animals. And now word is beginning to get out that it's pretty good to get dirty and into get in touch with. But then you can take that to the next level because many of these things, measles parties. That's entre over here, but I was actually. The the, some of these things are a little bit lesser known like, say, whip worms or tapeworms. These actually have some very potent immune modulating effects, and many of them are not parasites because a parasite has to do damage to the host and and live within the host to be classified as a parasite, but lives within the host that doesn't do damage. And one could even argue, motto Qendra fall into that category as an as an ancient thing. It's a eukaryotic organism that that got invited into a Sal. I read a book on this. There was a there was a guy who wrote a book who had terrible Crohn's disease and started reading about how people who get infected with hookworm, for example, had much lower rates of symptoms of Crohn's disease. So he actually went to a third world country because nobody would give them hookworms infect himself with and you walked barefoot around latrines and stuff got infected and his Crohn's disease pretty much went away today. Now I don't think you can find any of these clinics in the US, but I know Mexico Mexico. They have some of these where you'll go there. And they'll actually infect though inoculate, Chris, Christie is talking about, here's the problem with that. Those live within you and they don't go away. And so a lot of people who do this, let's say with with like tapeworms and they go to Mexico and get an Oculus. Did you start like pooping tapeworm babies in your asshole? It's..

"Living with Crohn's disease, most of my life and actually having been diagnosed as a child. I don't know any different and living with this disease. And I tried to help other people who are either newly diagnosed or have children who have newly diagnosed and some of my work with the Crohn's and colitis foundation, and I try to help them explain to understand that this year's receiving now, they can get better you can lead perfectly normal life will normal. I guess for IBD, but you know, for my experience in the coordination that I do for meetings and travel around the country for my job. I can still do that. I may not be feeling completely. Well, but I can still do that in the medications and the help from the healthcare providers has really helped me to be lead at least a little bit more of a normal life. The other thing I would say is it's kind of in follow up to what Phil said is make sure that you keep those lines of communication open with your physicians because what you may be experiencing me, you may think it's nothing, and it it could be something a lot more, especially if you. Leave it and last, but not least if you have medication. Make sure that you take it because you don't you don't they're gonna harp on it, and they're kind of laughing now, but it's very true because I've come across many people who either have cheered their own disease or have found other ways around it. And I'm kick concern for those patients in the in the long run. It's a really advocate for yourself. And know that the doctors are there to support you, obviously and take your medication. That's great words of wisdom. Well, thank you so much for sharing your stories. We really appreciate you coming on Phil Hopi recovery continues to go well and Alicia, thank you for all you do nationally for the Crohn's and colitis foundation.

"It just doesn't function properly for you. So in any of those situations, what ends up happening is you either deplete the population of stem cells in that particular reason in that particular region or those stem cells ceased to function properly. In either case, you now lose the ability for the body to heal itself. So what regenerative medicine and stem cell medicine seeks to do is to repopulate that area with robust stem cells that are functioning properly. So the idea with the full body stem cell makeover is we just go ahead and proactively flood all the major musculoskeletal all moving parts of your essentially on select the shotgun approach. Exactly. That's carpet bomb your body, your entire spine, both shoulders elbows, wrists hands, both knee hips, knees, ankle foot with stem cells. Super. Charged with Xs OEMs, and that's an expert I wanted to ask you about, actually thank you for providing that perfect segue for me because when I came your clinic, you said you're gonna take my bone marrow aspiration and inject that, but you want to combine it with these things called excess homes. And admittedly, at the time, I didn't know what x. homes were, did some research myself and also talk to you a little bit, and I was flabbergasted. I hadn't actually heard of these little things before, so describing what an XM is and how something like that would work if combined with stem cells. Sure. So let's go back to biology class, and we're looking at at the at the diagram of a cell, and you know, you see, there's the cell membrane surrounding it, and then there's the big nucleus that contains the genetic material and there's the mitre Qendra there's the goal g apparatus and there's, let's see if I can remember all those organiz, but there's all the different structures of the cell. And then these you see these little vesicles and they're called. Xs OEMs. And when I was in school back in the when I was in naturopathic school back in the nineties, we thought that was the cellular excretion. We thought that was the waist product because we didn't actually know what they were. Okay. So what zones actually are. So the way that laboratories create Xs zones to be used therapeutically are as follows. They take a placental stem cells, so placental stem cells are the most robust a, they're considered adult stem cells because they're they're older than embryonic. So you take these placental stem cells which are incredibly robust and you culture expand them. So you grow hundreds of millions of these stem cells. You then put them in a stressful culture medium. So what what that means is you make you trick the stem cells into thinking that their host is under duress. So they prepare for lean times. They think that the need to get ready for, you know, for starvation or for injury. They sprout these vesicles filled with growth factors that are the Xs zones, and the membrane around these vesicles are exactly the same as the membrane around the stem cells. So their ability to communicate with surrounding tissues is exactly the same as the actual stem cells ability. Then laboratory destroys the stem cell and just harvest is the Xs zones. So you're actually getting rid of the other person's genetic material and you're just collecting the active ingredient. It's what I like to hold the currency of the stem cell because when your own stem cells lose their potency, when they lose their ability to function at full opt optimal levels, what they are actually doing is they are losing their levels of the contents of these excess OEMs. So this is the very St. thing as we age our own stem cells cease to function properly that they are missing. So. Also supplementing with these Xs OEMs is really, you're getting all the benefit of culture expanded placental stem cells without the actual stem cells without the other person's genetic material. Some of the studies s on XM were were fascinating. You know like that they that they serve as once. Fascinating was the service endurance exercise Mimetic meaning that when used a exogenous Lear injected it, it appears that they can induce some of the same responses as you get..

"Mr. Ari welcome to the thrive time show. How are you. I'm great. Thank you for that. Wonderful and warm introduction, we'll sir. I've been spying on your reading as much as I possibly can about you to get myself coached up for today's interview in one of the things I read about you was that you actually started experiencing just terrible pains and we're actually diagnosed with Crohn's disease. Can you share with us about this experience and how this eventually led to you found ING your business? Yeah. So. Basically, I was working construction on Roosevelt on projects, upstate New York. I was among vase living, very unhealthy lifestyle stress on my mind. And when I was twenty three minutes with Rosie than for those who don't know, it's it's conic laboratory condition that affects Jessica tracked. It's considered to be incurable, and it's very, very painful and quite debilitating. So I was, I been working eighteen hour days for three years straight, pretty much balance. Often situation where I could barely do like an hour a day and through a long journey of self tracking in self experimentation. I was able to overcome the onus and a big part of that was overcoming stress because the Trish in the supplements fitness aspects. Those were all prescriptive in a sense meaning like you could tell somebody what, what pills to take, what foods seed in hopefully that will work for them. But if you tell somebody to manage the stress, that becomes a lot harder. Really put into words almost. So I responded to that by creating a new system of productivity, which I would call less doing in less doing more living. And I just did it because I needed to get more done in less time. So the overarching methodology is to optimize autumn in outsource everything that you do. And that started out as a personal actively methodology ending grew over time into on that. Now vice to businesses all around the world. You know, you talk about stress just to just to personify what what stress means might first business I grew was called DJ connection dot com, and we did about four thousand events year, mostly weddings, birthdays, that kind of thing before I sold the company and that one of the stresses I had every night Ari, I'm not kidding every single night. I would wake up hoping that we didn't miss somebody's wedding. You don't want to DJ's wouldn't show up late or miss the wedding. We're doing four thousand of them and I'm not panic attacks. What kind of stress were you experiencing before you develop these systems and processes? What kind of I mean, when you say stress, can you give us some examples of where that executive or stress coming from. I mean, probably the the biggest one was twenty three. I had accumulated three million dollars of personal debt. So what you doing, what we what? How did you accumulate that much debt where you really into baseball cards and casinos or what? What happened? Horses, actually, no. It was real development project that I underestimated how long it would take to get out of. And I did eventually get out of it, but basic, those twenty years old. I went to visit a friend in this city. Any show me these buildings, and I made an offer to buy them that day. I got a million half on security gonna wind for local Bank because it was a big project at the time. And you know that's a as a really bad idea to to give to twenty year old. And the second code is even worse idea. And you know they. Humiliated the there were things that we hadn't foreseen in the project. There were delays in selling units, and so of twenty, three to three million dollars and not to mention. I've been living just really unhealthy. Physical lifestyle have been working really hard. I was eating fast food a couple times a day smoking package. They resume drinking. I mean, I was I was not treating my body particularly, well, you know you in your best selling book the art of less doing you. Teach entrepreneurs a lot about your your system of doing less.

"You've got a, he received a diagnosis that Crohn's disease was his new way of life, but by radically changing his diet, Ari was able to change his life. And he also learned how to optimize his businesses, and it's a really neat story. But Charles, can you as a somebody's listening, they have Crohn's disease or tight diabetes. Is that something we have to accept or can we change that? Well, eighty percent of diabetics type two and farsm for diabetes. And I think what here exact statistics eighty percent type two. And I think almost like another, what it was percents, the vast majority, it's reversible with diet nutrition. So almost what I'm trying to say is a good chunk, say, seventy percent. I don't know exactly because it's been awhile since looked at it. I have. With a ton of people that like seventy percent of diabetics do not have to be on metaphor, men and insulin insulin pump. A lot of those guys can actually do it. I've worked with a does probably maybe a hundred or more diabetics, specifically through diet and working out, and they take completely author metaphor. Men, they've reduced their insulin pump, barely even running at all. Don't even have to use it and we can actually see it track it. We see how much they're using their blood sugar after every meal. I did that for years with several clients. So it is possible. And then you're talking about Crohn's disease. There's certain foods that really don't agree with people, and their digestive system Crohn's eases is is intestinal track and and a problem with that. And so the foods that you eat directly affect it, and when I was a trainer, I would research a lot of it and then try to figure out exactly foods that would agree with them. And if I didn't say, I don't know right now, but I do have several doctor friends and we're going to try things out within the next six months. We're going to have a plan that's going to get you whole lot healthier. And like I said, we just.
