You draw a clock and you put the numbers on the clock on the appropriate places. If you start to see changes on that sort of test, then you need to address it.

Thank you. And thanks for taking my calls. I was taking the nature Freud for maybe six months, and it was working so well. I felt the difference almost immediately from Yeah, it was great. Now the company that made it r l c. I think it is L r c. I believe it's rlc. Mike got a call from my pharmacist saying Sorry. Go back to your doctor and find another. You know pill because they stopped making it. I was very disappointed. I went. I talked to her. And she said Well, based on your current illness, I have auto immune disease. Dramatic mice itis and she says, based on that I want something that maybe you can control pretty good. So she recommended Synthroid of that whole control. Pretty good thing is is a non entity doesn't make any sense. Means nothing because control pretty good means you put it put on a dose of something and recheck it and you're in the good range and you're getting the results. You have good control on the nature threat is he described so right every now and then either Insurance company will say we don't cover that anymore, so a person can't get covered for it. That's happened with Medicare and armor. Thyroid. It's happening with nature. Freud, West Droid. The only good option I see is using a compound of thyroid where you get both firewood Components T three and t four. And there's no fillers, bonnets, exhibitions, colorings and dies in it. So you're getting the purifier oId and then all we need to do is determine the dose. And then the dose ng meaning. A lot of people have taken fire it first thing in morning and they don't take it again that day. And if you test that person, the afternoon and the fairways low because the morning doses used up they may need a little dose in the afternoon. Now, if you only takes level fire oxen or Synthroid You're only getting to you four. You're not getting any T three. And it's a mistake to think that t four is all you need. Or that t four Converse to t three because it doesn't we've seen Many thousands of patients over 32 years that are taking sin through under level fire oxen and their teeth. Three is low, and they feel groggy and brain fog and they're out of it all of a sudden. You put him on the T three T four as you describe the nature of Freud. But now the con kind of thyroid and people get great results because you're giving them what they've always had. So there are a variety of different things behind having inflammatory disorder. Elected to Madam, I aside is the problem outside as fibromyalgia. So we look at heavy metals is an underlying mechanism for that as well. So Realistically. Um, you know, we look at all the underlying causes of problems that you're describing and with a lot of these inflammatory conditions once you change your diet, maybe you have delayed reactions to a food that are causing or precipitating some the inflammation. Take those things out. We look at your vitamin levels. Correct your vitamin levels bring them onto the right range. You start to get a more dramatic improvement of your body. And for those things that are You know significant We do stem cell therapy for whether it's Alzheimer's COPD. Diabetes, Erectile dysfunction, Frailty, liver, kidney heart failure. Lupus, Rheumatoid M S. Parkinson's stroke, Alzheimer's The list macular degeneration. Pulmonary fibrosis goes on and on and on. These were all the general disorders and your body responds spectacularly to your own cells. You don't need the drug to try to force a change in the symptom. When your body is repairing itself. So it's just a different view of a different way of, you know. Helping to fix your body. Okay, so we You said something earlier on When I take the Synthroid, I'm only getting attention to the t four. Not really getting ready for. Yeah, four. There's no T three and that so really, I need to contact your pharmacy position. Precision Pharmacy. I need to go back there and buy those thyroid bills. I guess. USP the compound and thyroid. Correct? Yep. Decision is terrific..
Here we go again? More problems with hotel quarantine
"I'm health reported teigen. Tayla journalists dr norman swan. It's friday the fourth of december and norman. Just as we felt like we were getting on top of the south australian outbreak and everything was coming towards what felt like it could have been an even keel in australia. We've heard that there's been another case of hotel. Quarantine being transmitted to someone who isn't in hotel quarantine this time a domestic worker at a hotel in sydney. How do we deal with these scholley. That just an inevitable part of leaving during a pandemic so how do we deal with them when they happen. So far starts new the caveat that the time of recording this corona cast. We've only got partial information. More information will know marriage but this is going to happen from time to time. Not just in new south wales but elsewhere initially. It sounded disorders persons working across two facilities. It may just actually look located facility. You'll remember in victoria. People are strictly working in one. They are going to genomics just to work out. Where exactly this person got up from. Is it hotel quarantine order. They get it from the community again by the time you just as we the answer to that question nonetheless when you test workers in quota quarantine regularly you will pick up positive cases and you might pick up positive cases that are relatively mildly symptomatic or symtomatic. The otherwise card. So it's a good thing that we are detecting them and hopefully we're getting onto very quickly and they are testing the context of this person so we just need to see what happens here. But it's going to a car and we're bringing people overseas with coronavirus. This is gonna is gonna occur in all jurisdictions and nobody can look done new south wales or victoria or anywhere else. This is now going to be part of covid life moving forward and presumably as long as we are surveilling. That really closely. There's no need to go into full lockdown mired if you're picking up those cases very close to the source that's right and you wills has had outbreaks and quite significant outbreaks managed to bring them back down to zero. So this is going to be the same thing i can't. I can't imagine that this is going to be a problem of the dimensions. Of say. The purview cluster in south australia. But who knows. We'll see that. Knock allowing the premier. Wis necessarily did say that he wouldn't hesitate to close the borders again. Norman you give up on your dream of seeing caucus no. I'm still hoping that Run a me hotel. Quarantine new south wales or not. Well the other big coronavirus news. It's that in the last thirty six hours or so is that the uk is going to roll out the final vaccine really exciting to have real life people getting real vaccine at the end of this really really long pandemic approval so it's not a proper approval obviously just on a dive to make sure there's no major safety issues and the risk versus equation given how many cases get the uk favors just using this vaccine. They reckon the risk is low but they they will not have really looked at the data from the trials in any great detail. This point so it looks as if it's safe will it prevent infection. We don't know that yet it. May it certainly will prevent covid nineteen disease which is great given. You've had so many deaths in the uk and for us. It means that we shouldn't be rushing at all. We're not in an emergency situation. We'd almost no virus in australia apart from hotel quarantine and we can wait and we can let the british to be blunt. The british and the americans make mistakes learn how to distribute it double check that it's safe when they've given it to millions of people over the next few weeks and we will will put us much better shape from when we implement so the approval for the visor vaccine. Maybe some of the others will be over the next six weeks maybe longer. And then it's that we will do it properly. We actually talked about that in a bit more detail in yesterday's episode of corona cost. So if you're interested go back and check that one out. The other thing. Norman that i could say a very popular new story yesterday about someone who'd had sips associated with covid nineteen and he seemed to have a really dramatic recovery because of a massive dose vitamin say. What do we make of this not march. We'd be my first response was fantastic for the patient. It's a one off. There's no randomize ation here. People will argue that. You don't need a randomized trial with a parachute in other words. Prove parachute works. You wouldn't do a randomized trial parachute works. You try it out. So here's somebody that they thought was gonna die. Didn't die from mega doses of vitamin c. They'll think that they know what. The mechanism is presumably. They'll say that it's because it says potent antioxidant and it's doing something for the free radicals that may not be the case. Very high doses of vitamin c are actually pro. Oxidant and i suspect that if this works they haven't got a clue why but it might be a signal that you would actually test this out in people over on a larger scale to see what's going on so
Chakra's, Contemplation and the Rainbow Bridge
"Shuckers and contemplation follow the exact same path. It is incredibly strange that the maps to the sacred self out true selves are absolutely everywhere and have been since the beginning of time when we moved from our root chakra all the way to crown chakra. We will see that seven stages and the use the same stages of this light and energy flowing throughout body. An after the talk we use that same process In the journey of waking up to what is contemplation so presence gratitude connection love courage empathy and self regulation are seven parts shuckers literally mean wills or discs and to us they are little maps energy maps that take us from one level of life. Pretty much like maslow's hierarchy of needs the six basic needs of of growth. All the maps look the same. So let's look deeper at the shuckers. Understand how that energy flow can take us back to a state of self regulation and sacred self so shuckers to the contemplative desk. These discs are evolutionary software. And they run by computers and autonomously regulate the energy needed for what we do every day. So living a balanced and meaningful life is kinda regulated by these seven shockers e seven colors. And how the energy gets stronger and stronger as we wake up realize ourselves become more spiritual metaphysical is just incredible. So how we do that Especially in our contemplative practices. Are we go through. Things like learning about meditation self-regulation and mind be because shuckers already rooted in the physical body. So when we're anxious depressed lost in our thoughts obsessive thinking that leads to a ton of depression anxiety personality disorder on we turned back to the shockers. We keep it simple and we got back into the physical body so in alcohols and book. We describe that people need to out their minds back into their body. It's simple breathing. Take for example. Meditation relaxation techniques are going to take you back into the body but what four to get the energies open and flowing again. So yoga means union. We keep saying and the union of the seven colors and the flow to us roadmap to keeping aligned open attached connected and moving through the various stages of life without closing down when we closed down. We suffer so the road blocks personality a main to be transcended or transformed as we do the thing that humans do develop more and more consciousness all we are doing is developing more and more consciousness. How we heal. Anything is we go. We look for the truth or reality in it and we develop a new consciousness. That says we're okay. Consciousness is what contemplacion's about and it's what the shockers to sir about sir we hugh imbalances in the body in the mind the soul with an acceptance or an understanding awareness that our minds bodies and souls have been compromised. Somehow how healing takes place as we start to realize in the beginning. I'm not working. It's not working. it's not the life is not working instead. We are not working. Life will out of control for example now thinking and we have lost our way over. Become entangled blocked stopped sick suffering. We develop a disorder an addiction. Whatever it might be all be described as being blocked so those books would be called a thousand years ago. it'd be called up demon shuckers. Those would be the things stress. The demon shoppers. That would stop us from letting this energy flow and what we in contemplative intelligence is how to get that flow going again. We go beyond the imbalances and back to the nature of four. What nature intended so shuckers and contemplation already described as the bodies. Mine matrix they. They show us that something else besides just mere survival and mia problem solution is going on. So the primary shockers made from color root chakra through the heart. Mind body soul and up to the top where we have what we believe contemplative intelligence. I think it has shown us the study of all of this That this map is the way we get to transcend olympic systems. We get to transcend. Fight flattened freeze were sponsors of the downstairs of our brains

Why Do We Hoard?
"Stephen question for you. okay. I want to know about. You're keen walk cabinet if it is still four or perhaps even overflowing and really. Why i'm asking is when you said that you keep buying box after box of kyun wa and never cooking any of it. I had to ask myself is even a hoarder so first of all i would say. I've used off on the walk purchase. Since you talk me through it since shame do about it. M i a hoarder so i would say that. I don't believe i am now or have ever been what is called the severe horror where you accumulate. So many books or newspapers or coup clocks can't make it to the front door right that you have to have a goat path through your possessions. I am certainly familiar with severe haunting. I mean i've encountered it several times in my life mostly in reporting but some personal life and i did grow up in a home where we saved anything. That could possibly be reused. But i think that had a lot more to do with being low income than with the factors that tend to drive severe hoarding. Well think this connection were. You're saying oh that was different because we didn't have any money so of course we had to hold on everything and then hoarding beyond any kind of level of reasonable thriftiness. I think they are connected. The phenomenon of hoarding. Which isn't terribly well. Understood is thought to be intuition. Or an impulse gone awry. And it's like eating fatty salty and sweet things. We evolved to seek out really high-calorie things with sodium. That worked well for many generations until we've had so much to eat that that same instinct is serving as and maybe warnings the same way that we haven't intuition to hold on to everything which is good until you get to the twentieth century. So that makes some sense to me. But i don't think that's really how actual severe hoarding happens from what i've read. It's more usually driven by some kind of traumatic life event. Where you have come to believe that things have evalu- beyond what other people would think would be a realistic value or that. Things are deeply irreplaceable. Or that things are so essential that you cannot go on another day unless you have collected all six of your local newspapers and added them to the pile so i would distinguish between what you're describing as a kind of canary. Need to conserve in reuse. And what seems to be pathology to keep things well beyond the volume at which they're useful. Well many pathologies stephen are normal processes taken to the extreme and so we could both be right. We could both be right and then. There's the question of whether hoarding only means physical things. Do you consider digital hoarding to be legit. You know some researchers actually used the phrase digital hoarding. And that's basically accumulating files and photos and so forth that you don't wanna part with and just like regular hoarding or analog hoarding. I guess definitely it's dysfunctional in other words. It's getting in the way but this incident. We have to hold onto things to not let go. Were all on a continuum of us to do that more than ours. And then at the extreme you have a hoarder. I think you're right. Also highlight that. There is an element of obsessive compulsive. Nece to hoarding. And from what i know and i'm not clinically trained as you know as a psychologist. I'm merely do research but my understanding of ocd. Is that the old part. The obsession part is a thought and then the compulsion part is behavior and very often. The thought is some distressing thought like ono. If i throw this away bad things are going to happen. And then the disordered behavior is that you shove everything in the closet. So i think there is a very uncomfortable. Obsessive thought that gets discharged or relieved a little bit. When you engage in this behavior and anyway. I don't want to say that hoardings not pathological because it obviously is. It's also we should say dangerous in that something like twenty five percent of all fire. Deaths involve hoarding. What that's terrible. I've seen one study. That found hoarding is responsible for a quarter of all what they call avoidable fire deaths. Now we should say fire deaths have fallen so so so so much right. We're talking about small numbers bite still proportionally. It makes sense because if you have a house full of newspapers books whatever pretty flammable and they make hard to get out and they make it hard for people to get in to rescue you during the pandemic. I've tried to get in more than a hundred steps a day. So i take a walk around the neighborhood and i have to say there. Is this one house. I look up to the fourth floor and you can't see much except for there's a fan in the window and then there's all these obstructions and then there's this like tiny sliver of light i think is the light on in the room and it only dawned on me gradually that this must be where hoarder lives and now. I'm worried that they're going to have a fire.

I said let's deceased together into the story of what happened and how i lost and regained my commitment. How might new. Optimism is kind of a little more informed with a little more realistic eating. Be realistic at the same time. You reminded us for those who need to be reminded how precious thing it is to walk. And i found the way that you described your relationship with wheelchairs to be very powerful at one point in the book said that.

The didn't hide the fact that you had parkinson's symptoms but actually incorporated that into the role such as louis canning of courses. The lawyer on the tv drama. The good wife with listen to a scene there. I suffer from a condition turtle disconnect asia which is released a funny word for neurological disorder. And it makes me do this. And this i if you just look at me all of us to it so and i won't mind in the book you say that you're ready to accept the your acting career is over to an extent i i laugh in fact it's something surprisingly something to change but yeah the last couple times. I acted i actually. I haven't played warners again anyway. Resume lines difficulty for some reason. Always been some interesting. Even with. I look at her family. Ties scripted from five minutes Show and i just said they photographic memories Position where i didn't know struggling with the lines Lear capital in time in hollywood going off assessing what. What is the deal. But unlike him in that movie. Who's parading himself really angry when i found myself in that position. I said i'll gable. This isn't working so maybe we'll find some other way to do it or not. Do you also say you may be done with gulf another thing that you've loved. How is it letting these things go or acknowledging that it might be time soon to let them go. Insights about acceptance and gratitude and acceptance. Part of it is what is accepted into circuit. That is what liz i can deal with that. An investing came endeavor to change it. But if you don't accept the and be more blog that be cranny of your life Adjusted so. I accepted the fact that i assume golf club too hard. I fall down in a like boohoo. I'm falling nanosecond. Only now therefore i don't put myself in that position again fall down on but maybe one day i'll be treated in a way or find some way to get so. I don't fall down in the gulf again. I'll be grateful for it. It's just a matter. Is that come compartmentalizing really. It's taking inventory seeing where that fits in your life and the losses that have had are more than compensated for by my family my friends by the role habit in the parsis communities it change to relationships with people on the street to how much i enjoy reading how much film much writing is less to joe you live. I'm speaking with michael j. fox whose new book is called no time like the future and optimists considers mortality and michael. Similar listening to this may have just been diagnosed with parkinson's and that could be very frightening for them as you. Well know in fact you become an ambassador of sorts. For for folks with parkinson's what's your message to people who've just recently been diagnosed as i was talking to manually. Today's few was just diagnosed in like me was diagnosed. Daytona nine Items that was twenty nine years ago. So i did. I said for you. Being diagnosed a twenty nine means for sure no doubt bank on it. Better write it down. It will be here in your lifetime. And how much credit can the fox foundation take for that. I will take not moods. It'd be happy happened. We we are the largest funded research in private sector but never a mission. Our mission is we have a thing. When we first started we about how to structure foundation dissimilar brought up endowments down like e bala money said on this again and said we won't be doing that. Come to go out so we operated on then in the set aside purely motive. Where would you do it. It's your model that each is trying to get this work done as quickly as we can for people in. It's been so yeah. Optimism is is a driver knows every night. You because because there's no sense doing something again at least argue for michael j. fox thank you so much. Be well you to

Many COVID-19 patients diagnosed with psychiatric disorders
"With today's trauma virus update. The state Health and Human Services Secretary, Dr Mark Galley says gatherings of Halloween could be responsible for cases rising and says, try to avoid the urge to get together at Thanksgiving. Even though it's been months We often feel this the most with people who were close to so extended family, our closest friends, but even if we haven't seen them for a while, Just because they're close to us personally doesn't mean that they have a lower risk of either passing, covert onto you or having covered come from you to the one thing we know activities where it's difficult to mask the whole time. So, for example, eating and drinking, create a higher risk for covert transmissions. Similarly, activities where you see people who you haven't seen recently, so people outside of your household Also creates a higher risk situation. Some of the numbers in the state show hospitalization seeing a serious spike. The number of admissions has risen more than 32% over the past two weeks. While the number of intensive Karen missions is up 30%. And in the first large scale study, researchers found an increased risk of adverse mental health consequences and those diagnosed with covert 19. And having a psychiatric disorder increases the chance of getting it. This is the first evidence covert 19 survivors are at an increased risk of psychiatric disorders. The research was conducted by the University of Oxford and

The 'What About Bob?' Test
"Legend has it. There was a stone at the entrance. To apollo's temple in ancient greece and on this stone two words. No thyself is the legend true. I don't know the better question. Is it possible to know thyself. We've been exploring this question as humans for thousands of years through introspection and self examination through religion and mindfulness and therapy. But i tend to think it's not possible to know thyself at least not fully to bump into the borders and edges of who we are but i do believe it's possible to uncover more and more of yourself in the course of everyday life. I think one of the best ways to do this is through connection to other people. I think of the waste. Cs lewis describes the connection of friendship in his book. The four loves he says. Let's say you have. Three friends will call them. A b and c if a dies which dark turn then be loses not only a but as part in see the explains what it means. He says it each of my friends. There is something that only some other friend can fully bring out by myself. I am not large enough to call the whole man into activity in other words. What i spend focused time with my wife or one of my children or a family member a best friend one on one time. Which is the closest connection in the world. Because these are people i cared deeply about how even if i give them my full undivided attention. I will still be unable to experience them in their fullness. And why is that. Because i'm only experiencing the part of them that i draw out of them now. If we added another person into the mix someone else that they cared about they would change right in front of me because that person would draw out another part that i don't have access to another part that we don't connect on i'll take it further a while back. My wife threw a surprise birthday party. I had no idea was coming and she brought together. This group of my friends who don't have much experience around each other in a few days after one of my close friends somebody who knows me. Very well mentioned. He'd never seen me laugh that way before. And that i. I was confused as trying to like go back in time in revisit the night and then i remembered who was there and it made perfect sense. My friend larry was there sitting right next to me. And there isn't a person on the planet who makes me laugh like him and you can probably relate to this right you get around certain people and they bring out that other side of you. That element of mischief that twinkle in your eye you tend to get in trouble with that group or you have more fun with that group and it's not because you're being fake or putting on a show. They're pulling something out of you just by their presence. Because people bring out different elements of you elements you might not even know you possess until they arise getting around others is one of the best ways to figure out what you have kicking around inside. That's a wonderful thing. It's also a little scary because we might be surprised by what we find so this brings us to the. What about bob test but first a little context if you haven't seen the film what about bob is a comedy from the early nineties about an esteemed psychiatrist and the patient who follows him in his family on vacation. Bob is the stalker patient. Played by bill murray and when he meets with his new psychiatrist. Dr marvin played by richard dreyfuss. His introduction is direct keeps it real the simplest way to put it. I have problems. He goes on to describe. Ocd panic disorder with agoraphobia. Hypochondria multiple other phobias and a list of other struggles.
How the gut protects the brain from infection
"A brains sit cocooned inside a series of protective layers. They called them in injuries. And these together with a structure called the blood brain barrier keep out unwanted bugs nasties that could otherwise prove lethal forest. But how exactly the brains defense systems do. This wasn't known now. A new discovery is added an important piece to the puzzle specialized plasma cells these a blood cells that make antibodies is important potentially harmful bacteria in our intestines and then make their way up to the outer part of them in indies called the juror where they churn out antibodies and keep the brain bug free medical worthy. The thing that really got me interested in thinking about the brain is that there's increasing evidence that the immune system plays a role in a number of brain disorders so things like depression and anxiety and even the progression of neurodegenerative diseases like parkinson's disease as well as that. We know that the immune system is required to defend parts of the body from infection. So this could be important for defense against infections in the brain and in the ninja. So things like meningitis. How did you them. Pursue this to try and work out. How the brain was actually fending off infections. As with many studies in immunology we use mousers as a model and so the first thing that we did was to take meninges and look at them under the microscope and they were plasma cells in the sierra and they were not just got anywhere. They are actually lined up along. The border of large blood vessels that run through the zero. The these bug vessels are called venus. Sinuses the next question. When we find these plasma cells was empty they were producing to all surprise. We found that rather than producing igt. What's normally find in the body. They were actually producing an antibody. That's normally found gut so you've got this interesting observation an- tomic clear in the first instance of blood vessels running through. Jeez they've got cells that make antibody lining up along them. But the antibody they're making is one that you would not normally associate with the bloodstream. It's one that you would find in the testing. Yes so that was surprising. And i guess the next question was well duty cells actually originating the guts or are they influenced by the gut so to answer that we were able to use. Mice have never seen any sort of bug. They have no bacteria or any microbes in their intestine and when we looked at the dura from these animals they were no cells whatsoever but when we added bacteria back into their gut suddenly again the antibody producing cells reappeared in the era and even if we only eat put one type of bacteria into these mice a type of bacteria that couldn't go anywhere other than the gut we still saw the cells reappear in in the dearest that told us that those cells originated in the intestine. Your sort of hypothesis is the bacteria in the intestine. They educate the immune system and immune cells the intestine and what the cells then migrate from the intesting with the knowledge of how to make antibodies against those specific microbes. Up to the brain and take up residence in the meninges around the brain exactly and they specifically take up residence at the border of these d'oro venus sinuses. And i guess then the obvious question will why. Why would that happen. Why is the system being set up and the obvious answer would be. Maybe those cells there to protect The brain from microbes bacteria that originated in the gut into the bloodstream. When they're flowing through those at venus sinuses where blood flow is quite slow. It's an opportunity for the bugs to get out into the brain so to test that what we did was to remove all of the antibody producing cells and then we challenged mice with microbes into their bloodstream. And what we found was the bugs were able to get a cross into the brain as so it told us that really. We found a whole new defense system for the brain. What are you going to do next. We're interested in the signals. That might take the plasma cells from the gut to them. And jeez and then the other thing. I'm really interested in is whether this has implications for how we try and protect people from meningitis at the moment. If we vaccinated against meningitis we give that vaccine into the muscle but our study would suggest that actually if you want to make cells to defend the brain the route that you should give that vaccine is actually via the gut and so that's something that we look into the bodies a clever all thing. Isn't it minute klatt worthy there. She's basically comes university. Study describing that work has just come out in the journal nature.
How We Study Alzheimer's and Potential Treatments
"We have two guests today. the first is alan pal quits. He is the senior research professor of medicine and president and ceo of the indiana biosciences research institute. Also joining us is bruce lamb. He is director of stark neuroscience institute. Welcome both of you. Thank you so we usually like to start off by asking people how they got to the position that they're in like how does one become a senior research professor of medicine allen and what is president and ceo of the indiana biosciences research institute. So if you could tell us a bit about what you do and how you got here so thank you very much earned so I think my experience has been somewhat atypical. In terms of coming into academia. I spent twenty eight years at the leeann. Company started off as a bench level. Scientists of medicinal chemist and eventually in my last eleven years woods the vice president discovery chemistry research and technologies where oversaw small molecule drug discovery across all the areas of therapeutic interests that lily so this was a very rich experience and and after being there for quite some time. I had the opportunity to make an early retirement at the end of two thousand seventeen. And i was thinking about my next steps and i had developed long relationship with a not shaker. Who the rhinos. The key leader here at a school of medicine and asked me to come over and help with the position. Health initiative than any perspective that i could provide in and input in you know things kind of transpired in i came over as a professor of medicine and eventually met bruce and you know a lot about our work together here in the past year and really create some great synergies and then as i spent some time that you another opportunity came up in in the community and this lousy indiana bioscience research institute which is an organization that really had a ton of blossomed out of a vision to really create additional note of innovative research and capabilities. That would draw the community together and diorite been around for about five or six years. And now i'm there to really help create additional bridges and create new scientific directions that really elevate The the sciences here in the mid west. And hopefully beyond great and bruce sort of what what has been your experience. How did you get to hear. Thanks a lot erin. So i'm a phd level basic scientist by training. I was at johns hopkins At case western. Reserve university. In cleveland clinic in doing science research into alzheimer's disease actually for my entire career and then I saw this unity to come to indiana in early. Two thousand sixteen to lead out this translational neuroscience research institute Stark neurosciences research institute. And it's a really unique Place that brings together. Clinicians basic scientists translational People now drug discovery as well sort of brings everybody together into one location to really do innovative and interdisciplinary research. So we wanted to talk today about alzheimer's disease. So i'd really like to start by just for our listeners. What is alzheimer's disease. Yeah so alzheimer's. Disease is obviously a brain disease And it was first described. And i think the history is important because it sort of still sort of how we've sort of you. The disease was described by a bavarian neuropathologist us alzheimer in early nineteen hundreds And he had a patient who had dementia sort of loss of memory She had paranoia clinical features that she had and then when she died Being a neuro pathologist he looked in her brain did standard stains at the time and described this unique brain pathology which still even today sort of defines the disease and that was primarily that there were two primary major neuro-pathological hallmarks that he observed in the brain tissue one where these amyloid Sort of the sticky substances which were aggregating in the brain and the other words what we currently today called neurofibrillary tangles which is another Brain pathology and even today it still sort of those two primary brain pathologies that are pathan demonic for alzheimer's disease. However i will say that as we've gotten into the modern age and in our began to understand the complexities reprieve that alzheimer's disease is a is a complex set of probably multiple disorders which are very related to one. Another but actually. There's probably not one set of alzheimer's disease out there. So is it. Is it just sort of like a neuro degenerative. Cognitive decline is we just believe is because of a few specific reasons so there's clearly a lot of neurodegenerative cognitive decline syndromes but alzheimer's is just a group where we think we know where the pathologies right sort of defines. You know one particular type and again. There's there's many different types that this is probably the most common one and it's also very much age related so you really see sort of a doubling after about the age seventy seventy five doubling every five years of of the incident so with sort if the baby boomers reaching the age of sixty five at ten thousand. A day right. Now that's why there's the big increase in number of cases is there a typical course. Does it usually hit a certain age. And last a certain amount of time. It's pretty variable You know there is a sort of a prototypical alzheimer's disease. But if you talked to the clinicians. And i'm not a clinician. But if you talked conditions they say if you've seen one case of alzheimer's disease you've seen one case of alzheimer's disease You know that really. There's so much variation in how how people present their how it progresses within those people So it's it's pretty variable. Obviously the common underlying features certainly memory loss at least at a general level but within that you have other changes sometimes with personality disorders of all variety of other things that can come along with alzheimer's
"disorder" Discussed on Mentally Yours
"Basic Self Management You and your friends and family. And, then we're GONNA try and develop more. Niche packages. Get in groups of people together about seven or eight people affected by bipolar. You can kind of go through a coolest about seven seven weeks on it, so look in detail online as well to get people to come the understanding and we find that is the combination of the awareness of the condition how it's self manage with to to have people who are going through the same page as well so powerful have been eligible. Eligible neighbor people to like well. Yeah, I think I might have finish up by saying. What would you say to people who are listening to this the like me with bipolar disorder, but they're not really sure about getting to the taxi I mean myself two years to even talk about rice, Bassett, and then we'll tend to go to sleep. I think I mean the I went to was sort of in my mid. To say you've been aware of taxes. I just didn't feel like I wanted to turn to the people with bipolar disorder. Basically just don't have about What would you say to them most people? Know before the other dinosaurs, no anyone else. She's living with bipedal the least. They didn't think that I know anyone else would buy that. They wouldn't know someone so you think. What in fifty you. Both people probably know to people with bipolar, but they wouldn't necessarily know that living with the condition. And I think someone's someone's diagnosis Identifies yourself someone else says and you'll die. You tell the people deserve to know which I think is really really important thing so. If you were wanting to talk about your life, Puerto, people by then I. Think at all talk about it. Generally, we don't WanNa tell everyone. I think going and meeting people with the conditions, really good first step. Helps you understand it better, and it helps you could understand living with bipolar is not. It's not the life sentence if people think it is that there's people out there who are achieving amazing living with the condition, and they have relapses in. They have both times, but it was out ready and good times as well where they kind of living really well in Jason, great things in their careers and so forth. So I think it's been joining a family and have families of their problems, but you could you meeting other people that condition you're gonna how instant connection. And it's amazing how it transcends have different backgrounds different like racial religious language and will monitor things you can connect to someone else who their condition and five per UK provides a safe space to do so and we don't..
"disorder" Discussed on Mentally Yours
"Traveling to April Kelly. She's an actor producer and ambassador bipolar. Uk We're going to be talking about bipolar disorder borderline personality disorder and also what it's like working in the entertainment industry when you have mental health issues for Kelly. Welcome to Mentally Yours. Hey thank you for me. So what kinds of things I met you at a happy with We were talking about what kinds of things they're like. Maeve got bipolar disorder have line personality disorder. A friend. Yeah. When did you find out that you had these things? So I was formally diagnosed with bipolar nearly three years guy no two years ago. I Li- I've suffered from the age of fifteen on diagnosed as we know bipolar takes years to diagnose correctly and it wasn't until last year in March the I publicly came out about it and I say that as of a million followers no I just mean to my friends people I worked with and then over the course of this last year when I've gone back into therapy kicking and screaming is because of the because of board line and the traits that come with that are so familiar with bipolar. They're best friends. Is that fairly well? I didn't call them. But is that something that this happened effeminate? Yeah so it's not. It's not unusual and then Adhd also comes in with which. I hope being diagnosed a be interested to do the test. Just to just to see if the three musketeers existed but no the traits of which I find what trigge may our relationships mainly so So that's where the board line comes in the fear of abandonment and all those fun elements he said You. I realized that things are bit difficult. When you're fifteen. What kind of things were going on? That really confusing. Just a real deep feeling of emptiness in the pit of my stomach and I couldn't explain it for love no money and it was a. I remember saying when I did come up publicly poor. We read it the letters my younger self is. I didn't know what this feeling was. It felt like some sort of food poisoning. But I knew I hadn't eaten anything badly and it was just. It was like a real dock butterflies and I couldn't shake off and we put it down to being a teenager and grow in I knew I knew I would struggle to sleep and things that I now know as bad cycles are as I oh my God that was happening then and in terms of by disorder. You one or two so. Have you had mania hypo mania how to sew and I? I've never reached the heights of of mania but I do we we. We discovered very quickly. The it's not about managing the news is about managing. How high go if they can if they can stop me from going too high then I don't have fought for. What sort of things happened when you have kind of gone? Ty so that can be with. The industry are men. It's very easy You can have sparks of really good episode. Well Good Career Moves. And then are a lot of rejection. So I remember when we were filming a film. It was a month over in the states. And you just pumped with adrenaline. You don't think about anything you having the time of your life. And in a soon as it's all over your bubble burst and everyone else goes on a days and moves onto another project and for me. It feels like a break-up from an entire group of people and that high plummeted an goes into I'm share exhaustion. I even ended up passing out when I back out of sheer exhaustion. But couldn't sleep just was up all night with my dad. Tell me a bit more about the industry. So you're an actress. But you also producers that right yes yeah director. I know directing acting and producing still not. Yes so I turned actor and I'm in my second year drama school. I started my production. Company could many productions and the reason I did thought was we were doing a module where we had to say what we're going to do when we weren't acting that wasn't so destroying and I presented a production company. And what you said to me afterwards at you WANNA come back next week and do sign a little bit more realistic and a registered company. Two weeks later I was twenty one and then graduated met my business partner who does off his my rock my hair Sarah and yeah and the rest is history as they say so. We built the company over the last eight years. Oh yeah that's that's really close to thirty now isn't it? Yeah I'm close to thirty eight years and and still act because I was just adamant. I didn't want something outside the industry to support my acting. Career wanted to stay. Stay there because I love. I love the industry. Being an actress must be quite challenging. Sorry you prefer actor or actress. Easy okay. So being an actress that must be quite challenging in terms of mental health. I would assume because you're going to audition. 's this kind of constant rejection. How'd you manage that hard? Yeah well everything actually. My mom bought me up really well to deal with rejection. I don't how she did it but I always kind of accepted that that side of things it was more. It's it's more when you do project I get into a routine very quick so even if I'm doing something for two days or inside for four months I will make a family and leave in that family. Devastates me but rejection in gem will. It's the name of the game and soon as I got onto the production side and I saw more and more how things were being cost. You kind of realize it's actually very little about yourself. It's so much down to what you look what you look like. Obviously but all the conversations are going around To some extent I've I've done many an audition where the rose come through and I know in my heart heart says no way. I'm GONNA get this. But the cost in director has to be seen to be doing a wide range of people in and then you say it when it comes out and your thoughts a famous person. I didn't stand a chance. All right can you tell me a bit more about the projects he worked on. Yes so recent ones what. What would you like to know I guess like the highlights and also yet most recent ones the highlights? Wow will be nearly thirty which I keep bringing up. That's terrifying. That's what sends me. I'm a little bit loopy. I'm going kicking and screaming to thirty. But no the highlights so back in twenty fifteen. Sarah and I produced a short film which was all biggest short film at the time and it was Christian cooks dark. To- debut and Christian cooks been in films like Love Rosie and he's a wonderful wonderful guy and it was. It was so difficult if something never done before. It had Peter Molin in Michelle Fairley who incredible actors but it was shot in up in Northumberland. And we're shooting on like on what you'd call it. I want to call it a mountain making a mountain out of a molehill there but the snow came down it was just. It was incredible to do but I'm really challenging and not film went on to do some incredible things one many award and it did gas long listed for a BAFTA So that was incredibly exciting person within the company did a filming 2017 called anyways and I played any and that was a story of Eight Twenty. Something year old navigate in the dating world Was very very true to myself because she just didn't want to settle downs. She was just rinse lava. Repeat of different men and that in itself thought traveled the world went to seventy festivals around around the world and we ended up winning rising star awards without and that was super exciting to think most recently the two highlights For for myself is we shot the film in La. The fillmore was. I was mentioning where where it was a month in. La and it was the biggest high. And I would say still the best time mind highlife. It was a film that I had written and was in an produced and it centered around bisexuality. And although it's a body film Har- It dealt with how once Once you and your friends get a drink in you you'll seemingly hetch sexual friend decides. This is a superb moment to explore their sexuality and it was the fall out of that because bisexuality is just never really addressed. And I'm whilst I was trying to get my head around my own mental health as a youngster. I was laying in bed wide awake. Gern I might gay or straight and then didn't realize bisexuality was thing so that was a huge project for me it permitted. Bfi flare are then ended up on the floor. Mentorship and yeah. Last traveled traveled the world too so I feel very lucky. Didn't they working in a creative industry as you are? It's easier to talk to health issues because I think the assumption is that very creative people are automatically more open about that kind of things that kind of thing more open-minded perhaps yeah. I always say coming out was bipolar. Was Far more difficult than coming out as bisexual Yeah unfortunately that was. That was the case. Fortunately I am surrounded by people who are well educated in mental health or even if they're not educated in the nuance or the house. Pacific bipolar is. They know where to go to become educated So it that's why it took. It took a year for my real close network to get their head around it But in general yes. It's it's fall as far easier Certainly more common I know I've got friends in corporate world and oh it's so strange because in the corporate world there is so much mental health issues. It doesn't take a genius to work out. And I know I know. Companies now are set up to take therapists into the corporate world and an offer actual Therapy sessions not council in proper therapy session. Not say counts is not proper God. That sounds awful. So yeah ensure is easy. A- doesn't get any less terrifying telling a new person there. Do you feel it. Affected your career in any way particular not directly That's a lie. Yeah yeah it has. I would struggle to work for another company for a long period of time. Yeah and I I thank God for my business partner because I didn't realize how I was last year from about October twenty eighteen and it was December twenty third twenty nine teen whereas switch just happened and I felt well again and I just didn't know how well and I lost three months of my life at the back end of that all these plans everything was supposed to be achieve are supposed to head over to the states everything. Just go on hold because I was sleeping fourteen hours a day I could barely function And I just wouldn't have been outer hold a job down in in an office or in house production so yes. It does not fill. You've got to a place now. We are managing both conditions. And if so how still getting to grips with the Board Line Element of it? That was That was a bit of a curve ball at the back end of last year. I'd like to say I am. I have my own coping mechanisms. Some of them not so healthy of his More healthy therapies. Actually helping. My therapist wasn't hit loss week and I missed a week and so this week and I moan cool. My mom gain a hat. Chilly fell a difference. We've heard not been here and considering I went kicking and screaming and I was like Oh So yes I know more more. My triggers are The borderlines harder to deal with because it's learning about your behavior and a can't be medicated. So actually last year. I found the combination of medication to. That's fun to say combination of medication which really balanced me and my bipolar borderline. Ni- is all about relationships and haven't quite or grasp of that yet. But I'm kind of going in bulls deep because I thought otherwise. How am I gonNA learn because it's so easy just to run away from anything like that and kind of isolate yourselves and I'm going to have to sit in this feeling and work it out with that particular signs symptoms or was it. Something particular happened Made you or your therapist realized you had borderline personality disorder he Yeah it all stems back to when I was triggered a eighteen which I haven't actually got. I haven't got to the stage where I can talk about it publicly. Yeah it's it's. It's very strange because I was on poed cost. And she gives me a COUPLA days. So let's give it a go and then I said the story and then the next hour dot com dot com. I'm not ready for that yet. So that was a trigger in experience Based around a relationship. And just the older I get with Dayton and with friends and you you've got your friends hit in thirty. Who GETTING MARRIED. Settling down having kids and your nowhere near that and then more reaction is to date way too much or just end up making poor choices. And that's what I was doing. And it became quite apparent and then.
"disorder" Discussed on Food, We Need To Talk
"Do you remember back on the first episode of the podcast talked about my freshman year of college while a lot of people go to college and maybe they start drinking. Maybe THEY DO DRUGS. Maybe they do. Both I went to college and I developed an eating disorder. I'm so sorry you know that I'm not an eating disorder specialist but I also know that you're not alone and I think that we could probably find some experts to talk this through. I think that's a really good idea because I know joke around a lot but this is definitely something I've really struggled with. You know I have heard of food being referred to as the good girls drug. This is Jenny Thomas. She's an associate professor at Harvard. Med and the CO director of the Eating Disorders Clinical and research program at Mass General Hospital in Boston. She says food is like a good girls drug because some people turn to it to rebel or to deal with their emotions. So think of those times when you're stressed and you reach for the cookies or reach for the chocolate is highly accessible our society. It's not illegal. A lot of people attribute food with Lovin. Think of it as something. That's happy and celebratory Tori. So I think there are a lot of reasons that people might start picking it up. I'm Yuna Giada and I'm Dr Eddie Phillips and this is food we need to talk and as we mentioned today we're talking about eating disorders. This is actually very serious issue. And we've spent a lot of time talking about what to eat what not to eat and our relationship with food but today I thought we should do a little bit more of a deep dive into when you tip over the line and getting into eating disorder and what you can do about it. Eating disorders are definitely not a laughing matter. Because I know for me. It's been one of like the biggest sources of distress in the past six years of my life. Where did it start for you? I attribute my eating disorder personally to peanuts religion. Well as I said on the first episode I spent basically my entire freshman year super low calorie so like sub twelve hundred calories and working out twice a day so you know I think I should stop you from it. Just twelve hundred calories. A day is not a lot of energy especially if you're so physically active but I also notice that if you go on Calorie counting APP. The all seem to default to twelve hundred calories a day. But if you're generally healthy and you WANNA get enough nutrients and enough energy. You probably need eighteen hundred twenty four hundred calories a day so that's part of the problem because I get to the end of the day and I would just be so hungry and then what would happen. And then I'd be sitting at my desk and I'd open it and inside was a box of many packs of peanuts which my mom had bought from me because I had complained about how bad the food was at school but so the nuts. They're great snack. It's a good source of healthy fat. What's the problem they may be? When you're having like one handful but basically I would be sitting at my desk and I had blinken the next thing. I know I'd have a pile of wrappers around me and I'd be so angry and so ashamed of what I had done a lot of overeat. Sometimes it's not really the same thing because this was something I had no control over. It felt like like I would blink and then ten packs of nuts would be surrounding me on the table. Yeah I mean I think binge eating can almost be seen as like being in an alternate universe with food. A lot of people who engage in binge eating also engaging in restrictive eating so oftentimes somebody will go all day trying to follow certain rules about their eating so to say no carbs. No sugar or can't have sweets or candy processed foods in so not only are they hungry. Thir- like psychologically depleted from trying to self regulate all day and try to say. No all of these cues y'all so this was definitely me. I would be sitting at my desk at the end of the day. Hungry tired. Psychologically drained and then I might say something to myself like okay. We'll have this one bite of bread while I'm cooking dinner or oh I'm so hungry I'll just have the chip and at that point. It is game over everyone this entire day. There's no way that it can be perfect now and so I might as well just let myself binge. I would eat more in our than I would have eaten for five days total. You know what I mean. And then it's like. Why did I torture myself for five days to do it? So let's summarize kind of eating disorders that we're talking about the most common is what you've described so far with binge eating disorder and that's actually somewhat prevalent about three and a half percent of women and two percent of men. The best known. One is actually anorexia. That's about one percent of women extremely low body weight it also has to be associated with a disturbance in the way that you perceive your body and usually somebody with Anorexia Nervosa is maintaining their low extreme degree of dietary restriction. And that's also where you see the tallies and another pretty well known one is of course bulimia and those symptoms are when folks are eating really large amounts of food while they're feeling out of control and then trying to get rid of those calories by using vomiting or laxatives diuretics or maybe fasting for long periods of time or exercising away specifically to try to get rid of those calories so thankfully the prevalence of believe me is actually low. Maybe one or one and a half percent. But there's another broader category called disordered eating so this includes the eating disorders. We just described but it can also include people who maybe don't fit all the criteria for these eating disorders but who still engage in some of the behaviors. And that's a lot more people maybe fourteen to twenty two percents of the public. I have to say that based on just like talking to my friends and stuff I would have thought it was so much higher because to me. It seemed so normal. How so I mean I think it was pretty normal for people if they felt like they over to not eat the next day or over exercise. That was something totally normal like. I never thought there was anything wrong with what I was doing. Let me ask you if you don't mind like on the days that you did binge like the next day. What did you actually do at that point? When it first started I would start maybe to eat a little less than a day but then it would be like. I can't eat anything until dinner the next day or I'm going to try to burn eight hundred calories on the treadmill and the more and more I binged. The more and more drastic might compensatory behaviors had to become so eventually I just felt like everything was out of my control and you. You know cognitively that this is not healthy so what do you make of that? It's kind of hard for people to understand because an eating disorder isn't really like a rational way of thinking. It was more like I knew what I was doing was bad but there was no other way to be because I was so desperate to not gain weight So I think it has a lot more to do with the thoughts. I had and what what thoughts particular. Definitely the thoughts about how important. My perception of my body is to my self esteem. Johnny Thomas Calls this overvaluation of shape and weight. And what that means is if you think about your self esteem like a pie chart rate and you think about all the things that have to be going well in your life for you to feel successful to feel good about yourself. The ideal pie chart for somebody with a healthy self esteem would be kind of like a stock portfolio that's diversified where you'd have a long term pie slices or love. The Pie slices like for me. I'm picturing I want to be a good dad. I want to do well in my career went good level of physical fitness. I want some good family relationships. Yeah so for someone with an eating disorder. Somebody's pie chart can become so skewed that it's almost exclusively made up of just their shape and weight and so that number on the scale can define their mood for the day how they feel about themselves how successful they feel as a human being. This was definitely true for me so if I woke up and I weighed myself in. I weighed more that day. The entire day would be ruined just because of that and then on the flip side. If I weighed less a day that I'd be like Oh my God yes. I looked so much skinnier today. Like this all makes so much sense but it's of course. I probably looks the same from day to day today. So what I'm hearing from wall of this is that it's really crucial. Holy body image piece. It's it's really a crucial part of these disorders. Like I remember growing up and magazines. Of course you look slim models. Tv shows but I cannot imagine today with instagram models. That you're just seeing like an edited vision. Everyone else seems perfect. And then in the case of somebody with an administrator or somebody at risk they're gonNA compare themselves unfavourably always to all of those things and then feel even worse. I'm definitely guilty of this myself. logging onto instagram. Seeing how I look see how other people look see how other people are eating themselves to that You know and of course everything that everyone else's posting on social media they're picking the most flattering photos there mason jar full of solid or whatnot. That makes them look so healthy They might not be posting the other parts of their life that they're not winning to showcase so unit. Let's talk about what eating disorder looks like one of the problems with eating disorders. Is that even like your parents? Doctors friends we have certain assumptions. About what a person with an eating disorder looks like we're thinking of that anorexic individual. This is exactly what happened to me. When I went to see my endocrinologist. He like looked at my hormones and he was like ha ha ha. You have the hormones of somebody anorexic. Why would your hormones be this way? It's so funny and I was like this. Isn't that funny? Your body the way. Your body looked was not befitting that of anorexic person basically when he was insinuating was like. You don't look like you're anorexic. You don't look like you're dieting. You don't look very very scary. Were you restricting at that point at that point once a month? I literally wasn't eating for three days like I was just drinking water. And he even bother asking like have you engaged in restricted. Like are you eating? Normally for the labs didn't lie exactly. That's really unfortunate. And I think that the care that would be optimal would be to ask about your relationship with food because otherwise I think disordered eating will be invisible to doctors. I mean it's kind of invisible to everyone because if you're binge eating it's when you're alone it's never in front of people hiding it. Yeah you're always hiding it because it's something that's like very shameful right or like if I was going to parties or something and I wasn't eating like I would just get a plate of food to look like I was eating and then I would sneakily throw it away when nobody was looking and like people would make comments sometimes like at dinner. They'd be like how many calories during your dinner thirty because it would just be like a plate of tomatoes and be like. Oh yeah I already ate before? Whatever like I'd make up some lie so you know you're a hearing about all of these behaviors. It's actually kinda crazy to think that there's not even just isolated to people with diagnosis eating disorders. Food is just so powerful in our society. And it's so easy to engage. In these these disordered eating patterns a lot of people will use binge eating in particular as a way of escape from a negative mood and we know from research teddy is actually binge. Eating tends to be predicted by rising levels of negative mood prior to the episode and then actually negative mood tends to decrease after that Assad unit just as you described it begins with the restrictive eating right But then lets you have a bad day or something to go quite right. You've got this way of coping you binge yet and when it was happening. I wouldn't really feel better. I would just feel less. Bad kind of numb. But then afterwards I would just feel so much worse. Well it turns out that restriction is one of the biggest predictors of developing an eating disorder for many people. Dieting might be harmless. You know many of us are just GonNa Kinda give up the Diet at the end of the day of the week. But some people are GonNa really persistently follow it. Then start cutting back. Further and further. That they're going to develop intersects NERVOSA. Some people will do that for a time. And then they're gonNA find that they can't stand.

"Do work like figure it out. It's not working and I think the worst experience was going to get ice cream. And then telling all the other clients you all get scoops looking at me and saying get a scoop and it's like obviously hanging restricted eating disorder. So I don't want to be Eating ice cream in the first place. I'm already scared but the fact that now you're telling me that I can only have size is now telling me that like my body. My Body is wrong. My Body can only handle having a dis portion. I'm here because I want to be able to eat all foods and be free of my eating disorder and enjoy dessert whatever. You're now giving me the message that I can't and so you call yourself health at every size but I'm sorry like that's clearly a huge dissonant and seeing out completely. Oh my God. It's it's horrible. The idea that one person should limit themselves selves to scoop especially in the context of a bunch of people with eating disorders going out to challenge themselves to ice cream in the first place and like you're struggling with a restrictive eating disorder disorder. Like you said that makes you not want to do it in the first place and then this sort of dynamic of like you're the one that sat apart you're the one that has to eat less everybody. Everybody else is allowed to eat more like. That's just recreating that same trauma that it sounds like you experienced in childhood with your family and in society in general like while there's something wrong wrong with your body so you need to do this other thing everyone else gets to have more freedom with food which is just ridiculous and not true and like you're allowed to have as much ice cream as you've frigging one. What is wrong with these people and then to have the gall to call themselves? Fully health at every size is just beyond the Pale to me and then to see people in our field promoting them and sharing their things and sharing their social media pages. It makes me die die inside every single time. I bet absolutely. I'm just curious with that. Because you had all this knowledge of fat acceptance and health at every size going into treatment and but also you're struggling with an eating disorders. They're these like two conflicting polls on you. I'm sure in those moments where you're like eating disorder side wants to say yes. Of course I'll just eat percent of course will just get the scoop and then your non diet self care side is saying like no fuck that what are you doing. This is fat phobic right. So how did you navigate that in the moment and how do you think about it now. Now that that's over. I think it's an interesting question. I think like in that that moment I would freeze because it was dis- retraumatize ing of based on a lifetime of of all the things that I went through a lot of times I wouldn't know why was freezing or reacting way racket until later.

"A need for treatment after the insurance cover has run out out now again. This is a situation that i've seen happen and for those families that it's happened to. They have faced very very difficult choices now. They've they've either made the decision that they want to start paying for treatment themselves which can be very expensive but the benefit for that might be effective tiffin supporting their child to recover or they may have to make the choice to stop treatment because they just really can't afford to continue it now. The downside of this is mike undo any treatment that has already been completed by the therapy in the sessions that have that have been paid for privately now. If you're in a fortunate position where money isn't necessarily a problem to you and you can afford to fund treatment indefinitely then you might be okay but if money is limited then you'll have to make some very difficult decisions and this can place you in a read risky position. Some families that i've met have found themselves caught between the needs to give that child the best chance of recovery but then i faced real financial strain that the self funding has placed on them and their family so naturally this position is best avoided and to do this. You really need to do do homework now. There is another option that so far i've not mentioned which is voluntary or charity services typically vondra services are those that provide support port without cost to yourself so.

"That's a faction action definite action being overweight means you can't have an eating disorder fiction eating disorders on not deadly. Fiction, people can not have more than one eating disorder. Fiction fiction's. So we thought is that you can move from one to the other people might not know that. So you could have a ya on the voice earned. It develops into believe you're developed into being Jade. Ding. That's home. One. I think Ana Rexiti binge eating anorexia is the only serious eating disorder fiction. Everyone has a little bit of an eating disorder fiction. Ooh, see, I didn't say I it's, it's the terminology there, I would say disordered eating. Yes. Not eating disorder thing. Go. That is why you are the on the Poku today tall yet. Thank you so much, that Neely wraps up this episode the as with every guest, we finish with a food for thought. So my food for thought today would be the eating disorders complex, mental illnesses with no single cause they can affect both men and women and embarking on any kind of diet. How mean your move on to an eating disorder? All this can potentially change your relationship with food. It can provide a powerful urge to eat little to nothing or conversely, to consume excessive quantities of food. As we've discussed today. I truly believe there is absolutely no place for restriction, or the elimination of whole food groups in a healthy relationship with the so instead of focusing on what you can't eat focus on what you can and should be eating. And if you're need of some help with Saudi ting pleased, you speak to your local GP in the first instance, because they are the people that can refer you when required I should also add that someone recovering from any kind of eating disorder should only ever receive nutrition advice from either a registered dietitian all registered nutritionist, whose names of follow by either an audi- or art Neutra title for anyone struggling to find treatment because we know the waiting lists of very long on the NHS. I would encourage you to speed to beat their wonderful online eating disorder charity whose free helpline is open three hundred sixty five days a year. It's an invaluable source to so many and with so proud to support it at retrictions so Talia if we could have your food for thought for today's podcast, what would that be? I think it would be if you living with an eating disorder. Please don't feel like you're. Loan because that's what the eating disorder wants you to feel. So please know that you can't seek help and that there are so many people that can help you that recovery is possible, and that, you know, I think I agree with you that my philosophies that you can include ole foods in your diet. But it's about balancing out the different food groups for what works for you, as an individual and to balance, not only the food, that you wait, but all other aspects of life. So your social and physical health mental health as well. Well, that's lovely. I think that's a really great way to wrap up this episode three sixty degree pitch.

"Hello and welcome back to the east and Sorensen's podcast. My name is Mark tally, your host and are in this second series. We are episode for this series is all about GP now what today is what to do. If you are unhappy with the outcome from Eugene Pierpoint. Okay, so well done by the way, four getting your young passenger that to the GP. It's not often an easy thing to do. Now. What we're talking about today is if you've walked away from the GP and your not happy with the outcome from the appointment. Now, the could be lots of reasons why that may be it may be because you're still why it about your child. It may be that you don't feel that you were able to talk about what you needed to in front of your child, and you may have needed Tom on your own and didn't get that, or it might be that your child's eating disorder was absolutely on. It's a game and has convinced the GP that does not much wrong. And if any of us happened are don't want you to worry about it because we're going to talk about now what we do that now, one would say first off, is, if you're not happy with the GP appointments, and it could be because of the reasons that we've just spoken about what I would do is give you GP a call. And just see if you can talk through. You'll sought some feelings that you're left with right now. It might be that your GP is able to listen to the information given them, and maybe reconsidering rethink outcome of appointments, and that Mace resolve the problem for you. Now the other thing is you may also want to contact your local specialist. Charlton lesson eating disorder service talked about that. A lot through other episodes of this podcast, but that could be a really good Reuss of information for you now as I'm a professional working, one of those teams it's not an uncommon thing that we find that families and carries out there with young people have been to the GP and have come out and gone. I'm not really sure about I still want some more advice. Now, oftentimes when people ring us, a lot of families of said that because they spoken directly to an eighteen disorders team they've actually felt quite reassured by that. And they felt a little bit. More guided and directed us to they need to do next now, the reasons for that is. And it's not in any way, I guess, negative towards GP's GP's. See eating disorders before every so often, some GP's may never have come across eighteen disorders young paper before in their whole career. But us an eating disorder specialist teams we work with young people day in day out, and so our knowledge is very, very high, as I hoping everybody would expect it to be. And so when you talk to us, we may have a bit more of an idea of the subtleties of the information that you're giving us, and I guess we're more likely to be able to give you pinpoint accurate information about what to do next, and that may involve making direct referrals through to the team. Most eighteen disorder services for children now up and down the country are moving to a self referral process reason being because we do find some times that, that. Can be blocks when other professionals are kind of wondering about what to do with themselves and kind of not sure about referring three to us, maybe not wanting to make the family anxious about giving child of potential label of eating disorder or they're feeling that the submissive understanding about long waiting lists for children in camps or children's eating disorder services, incomes now just to reach. Right. We have a national standard in the U K. The all cans. Eating disorder services start treatments four weeks from the second that we get the referral come through the door to us. Okay. Now, what that means is, is four weeks is the longest time any child is gone to for treatment. Most short children, actually get frightened started earlier than that. So by referring to us and coming through to a star reckless, sometimes you can stop some of those road blocks happening now, the white in the height, and that information is reading portent for the GP too. App to medically assess your child, if that's not been done. There is definitely something that you need to contact the GP about to have discussion with, because it might be that you need to go back to the GP and have those assessments and checks done. Now, if you haven't got those done, and don't worry about that. You can still contact us at the specialist eaten disorder service because eating disorders are not just all about the white the height the blood pressure in the eating. They're important, but you've probably got lots of other information that would be useful for us to talk through with you. I'm from that information within likely to be out to say, yes, you need to come through to us an offer you an appointment. So that's another way to get yourself and your child access to treatment in a speedy. Untimely. Why that's all of them? I would say always contact especially seeking disorder services. If you have a concern because they can get involved at the early stage in order to speed things along. Now, there are other options that you have if you're unhappy with the outcome from the GP now what I'm thinking is if you've been back to the G pay and you're still unhappy with the outcome. An you'll may be unfortunate enough to be living in an area without a specialist. Eating disorder service, unfortunately, are still areas in the UK that are walking to build up their services, but may not quite be there at, if you was apparent feeding that you're just not being heard, and you are anxious and worried about your child's health. You do have the option of contacting your local Powell's service. Now Powell's continent what he's done for now let's eastern for now Powell's stunts for the patient, advocacy, and liaison service. Now what they will do is there an independent body within all NHS trusts that will listen to your worries or concerns, they will support you to and going through, maybe the complaints process, if that's something you're wanting, or they can talk to you, and support you to talk to the right people in order to get your, your concerns so that. And the pal sub is covers impatient. Hospitals, it covers community services also covers GP surgeries too. So their service that you can go to. So it's the patient advocacy, only eight and services go online. Go to go or any other search engine, you're finding formation about your local service there and give them a call and just talk it through with them. So there are the different options that you've got in order to get your child's needs met, if you're not happy with the outcome from GP there is one of the option, but we're going to be talking about that in the next episode, which is accessing private healthcare treatment going online. You will find lots and lots of private counselors out there. The offer treatment for eating disorders, but I want to dedicate the next episode tha that's because there's a lot of thinking.

It might even be that we can suggest that your child instead of going to the GP comes straight through to the specially service lots of places in the UK now are taking self referrals. So it's even easier to get through to the service that you need. Now. What I would do is. I would check that. With your local service, a say, most of them are accepting self referrals. That's the way in which the services need to go to it may be that some services of not quite got. There is yet. But if you've got concerns ring, your local specialist eighteen disorders child adolescent team and talk to them about what's happening. Because they may be up to come support you to get that first appointment with your GP ought to get that first medical assessment. So really what I'm saying is from now on woods, if you're not picking up already, I want you as parents become really proactive and think about what you got coming ahead of you. If your child is diagnosed with an eating disorder, and that's what's happening. Then you as the parents are going to be key people involved in your child's care. This isn't analysis that your child is going to be able to manage on their own that just not going to be able to do it the eating disorder. The parasite is just far far too powerful. And it's going to need a lot of people around your child in order to support them to be well. So you need to be really motivated anew really needs to be action orientated, and the might be times when it's much better for you to make decisions parents than is to ask your child their opinion. Because sometimes if you ask your child their opinion, the eating disorder will just get into say, actually, this is SRN I want you to give give it now. So if you're seeing that your child is actually giving onces that are not really conducive to treatment and recovery and an white game. And you'll learn more about this. As you talked to your specialist team that gives you the insight. That's no and recognize when you're eighteen when their child eighteen soldiers given answers, or when your child is and in the various stages if your child is particularly starved, you will need to make an awful lot of those decisions, which might be very different. So the way that you normally work as a family, but if you haven't eating disorder in your family there are rules that there are rules, and techniques and things I guess that previously would have worked that no longer work. So it's almost like you're going to have to be prepared. I guess to learn a completely different set of rules and ways of managing your child because the eating disorder. It's it's an illogical illness. If you go to your child to Newport, Iran random, and you say well done it may be that your child now is kind of like not happy with that. All they rejected or they get quite angry with it. And those kind of. Things. So those Noma whites of supporting your mom, all of a sudden start working. So this is where you just need to be prepared to have set before to be inquisitive a bit curious and open to learning new and different ways of supporting your child. Okay. So that's that's a lot longer with expecting it to actually, but they these are some of the key reasons why your child might be really worried about making even that first step towards treatment. The one thing that is really important that you know, is that if your child is upset and crying and Saint please don't take me. I don't want to go. I will do better. I would I would change the way that I'm doing I will eight I will stop excising if any of that is happening. That's okay. That's good. And you can encourage your charter stop doing all of that. But that should not stop. Or if you if it's been picked up at that is a bit of a bargaining tool in order to stop the appointment with GP, then treat that as a bit of an alarm bell. If your child is saying that they're going to change those behalf. That's absolutely fabulous. What I would say encourage them to change those behaviors. But still got your GP and still share your concerns because if you delay that it might be that your child changes their behaviors for a couple of days or a couple of weeks and then returns to their all behaviors or it might be that they told you that. And they're eating disorder is working at ways of being much more creative in hiding some of the things that it's causing your child to do. So even if your child says, I will stop all of this. And I will I will I will be better. I will do you're asking me to do support that but still continue with the

"Eating disorder as opposed to your child. So why does this concept? Why is it really important for you to understand this? When you go to your GP. And when you're thinking about your child's reluctance to go to the go go to the GP for for assessment impossible treatment. Now what happens is your child? Probably they won't be talking to you about this yet. If they are. I'm really impressed with that. But most children will not trust anybody around with their real thoughts. That are going on about food themselves are about the world because one thing that an eating disorder. Does. Is it creates this ongoing commentary in the child's head? Lotta children. Do see it that way. If you ask a child new given idea of does this feel like something different some children will say, yes. But some children won't be able to recognize that. But nevertheless, even with the children that don't recognize. That's what happening there is this different train of thought. And and thinking an opinion that has come along since they eating disorder is actually moved in an attached self to them. It's not doing things like saying that their favorite foods are not safe anymore or not okay to eat. It will. Actually, talked to them about how they feel about themselves and any insecurities that your child has about relationships about their appearance about their body about their abilities, and their achievements. The eating disorder in order to keep hold of its host will convince it that will convince your child that a lot of those things it really will look at manipulate some of those insecurities that your child has employees on them. Now, the reason why does that is because it tries to isolate you the child from you as a family and also from other people around so that it has a lot more time to work on your child's thinking when your child is on their own. Now, some of you may have seen that your child is a little bit more. I sort of you may have seen them pull away from relationships within the family. You may see that they not succumb to do clubs anymore or they're struggling with relationship. In school. Now, this might be because they're eating disorder thinking is really starting to play out some of those negative fantasies and starting to pick up the power in convincing your child that those worries concerns not just worries or concerns. There fact, I'm one chilled moved into that stage. They then it's kind of like the eating disorder them becomes their closest friend. It becomes the the only thing that tells him the truth about what's going on what's happening, and it can also make your child very suspicious of other people's motives towards them. So if your child is responding to you differently is not accepting praise in the way that they have to before if they're not accepting. I guess your affections. Some parents say that much doesn't accept cuddles anymore. Does not wanting to doesn't want me to be doesn't like compliments when I give them doesn't like hearing how well they do. And these the. Kind of things that the disorder kind of push around with the child. It makes them question all of that positively around him, and it kind of convinces your child that they are the one and only truth. Now, that's a lot of information to you is now and it wouldn't surprise me. Some of you sitting there really confused about what I've just said. But I just wanted to set the frame for you there because that's kind of going to be the basis of the ongoing podcasts, and the outgoing episodes that we do because I want you to understand the eighteen disorders something separate to your child. Because if you can do that, you're then going to be spot when your child is present in the room with you. And when it's the eating disorder that's present. Now, it's different for different families. But some of you may notice that your child's all of a sudden, the behavior switches, or they using different language or that, they're they're displaying different behaviors in that challenging you in a different way to the way, they were before you feel it's been a bit more secretive about things, and that those are the kind of things where you'll see if those behaviors are not covered touristic for your child. Those are the behaviors that are coming along with eating disorder. And that helps you to understood. Band and learn your child eaten disorder much more effectively if you if you struggle to see or if you're aware that you need to see these sort of something separate what can happen. Then is you can move into the position of just judging your child of of of saying that they are behaving in a particular way. They are actually they are difficult or they're struggling and sometimes if you don't understand a separate illness. It can lead you to become very frustrated with your own child and. One of the things I will say is that really gives power to the illness. Because if you if you try and understand that the illnesses aim is to isolate your child from those people that they love as a new parents if you don't understand the illnesses something separate to your child. What's going to happen is your challenge is going to be feel very judged and and criticized punished by you, they the eating disorder will induce behavior. Thoughts that your child does not understand and your child does not have control over? But the Wayne which is the way in which the the behavioral come across to you is your child doing it. It's your child has changed. Sometimes what happens is parents say they hit those teenagers now. And this is where the you know, there are bit more belligerent their bit more defiant. I guess that's true. But that is also something that eating disorder will use to keep itself under the radar. That you're in a really good position because you have spotted that something is wrong. And now you want to take your child to treatment. And if you can imagine when you have suggested to chart now, we're gonna go to the GP we're going to see if we can get some help ago. Nick, see if we can get some treatment for this. Understand that your child as in your child. They'll probably be parts of them is really really wanting nothing really hopeful and and really wants the support, but the eating disorder that is also living with them is going to hear that. And he's going to feel threatened by it, and it's going to use a men's power to convince your child that that's not a good thing to do. So if you'll child is being resistant to going to the GP, it's important to understand that this is the illness that is encouraging your child to move away from you as as parents and to move closer towards it. So that's why it's really important at this stage that you are calm, you are compassionate. But you are also clear and firm with your child, the you are going to take them to the GP at least for a chance. Now, it could be that that is really successful. In your chant will go nine times out of ten families. Tommy that Carmen, courage, -ment really works. And I said last time if you need to have both of you as parents there to play tactician with your child, you know, to support them to get there and actually manage the eating disorder play. Then do that work impairs because parents working together. Fafa more powerful the one parent walking on their own. Because one of the things that the sorta will do that is if it realizes that one parent is working hard on the other parent is may be working less. So or taking backwards seats that eating disorder will try and split she as a couple split you as parents you've heard the phrase divided divide and conquer. That's exactly what an in this audible trying to do in order to fragment USA family and to make easy then to stay as a

"Hello and welcome back to the team solder incites podcast gunman and his Mark Taylor your host as she probably. If you were frequently. This is the third episode of the second series of the podcast where we're looking out how you can make the best use of your GP appointments and today, we're going to be taking a look at what to do if your child is not so canes, go to the GP and how you can support child with that. Okay. So welcome back some podcast. And today what we're going to talk about is y your child may not be so keen to go with you to the GP. And also what you can do that. Now so far we've worked hard to let your child's. We thought about how you can respond to your an reactions, and maybe some of the some of the feelings that you might have about what's happening with your child. We've also had a look at some barriers to the process of collecting information as in the might be some things that your child is not came to know oughta share, and the might be some things that other adults in your family or other people around you may not wish to be known fully by professionals. I'm also had a look at maybe some of the thoughts around how stigma around mental illness may impact on I guess your access to the GPO what you're thinking about sharing. So we've done quite a lot of work up to now. And what we're going to look at today's maybe some of the reasons why your child my shower different view with regard to going to the GP for help. Okay. So let's look at your views at the moments. Now, the one thing that we know is if you have concerns about your child, and you are worried that something is happening with not very well. You'll see changes in their behavior that worries you your be motivated to go to the GP and to take your child and to get whatever is going on sorted. So you have the I'm of looking at this as an onus or a difficulty that needs to be sorted out or cured or treated in some way. Now, the one thing that you need to know is that your child may not have that same motivation as you which sounds quite difficult to understand in some ways. But let me explain it. Now, the reasons why your child may not be so Kane is because if this is an eating disorder that we're talking about the fundamental ways. In which this eating disorder will change your child's thinking. And in essence the eating disorder itself will have a different motivation. Okay. Your your your child's eighteen disorder may have the wish to survive Rafa than be killed now that sounds tough. But I just want you to just want to try and help you get your head around that. But just describing how I've come to understand the eating disorder, and I've explained this to different parents in this way, and they've come to understand the the Wayne which eating disorder works. Now firstly what's really important is a want to try on what they call externalize the team disorder. So I want to try to help you to see it a something different to your child. So. Does various different ways in which you can do this. But the one way in which I found is quite helpful to look at is to think about the eating disorder is something that actually wants to survive. It wants to stay with your child. It wants to continue to be whereas your motivation is you want this gone, but your child is kind of caught in the middle of this. There are times when your child is going to want to be free from the Selma's. But there are times when your child will want to hold onto it. So let me explain the reasons why are just giving you this idea this concept of this eating disorder as a parasite now for those of you out there that are scientists and biologists. You'll probably get what I'm saying quite quickly without an understand what I mean. But for those of us like me that are not a parasite is something that attaches itself to a host in order for its own survival. Now the way that parasites work is they will use. Is or the resources within the host in order to ensure its own survival and not worry about the mortality of the host or not worry about the wellbeing of the host. Now, this is one now this is one to think about with regard to an eating disorder and eating soldiers a little bit like that an eating disorder has moved into your home an eating disorder attached itself to your child and the eating disorder very similar to a parasite has this wish to survive. It sole goal is to is to live is to continue to be present. And so what it'll do is it will convince the host as your child that it needs to keep it self going. It needs to keep the eating disorder around a way that it works. Is it manipulates your child's ability to eat? It pushes your child into a starved state which forces your child to then have starved brain, which then influ. Silence is your chance ability to think for itself. So when you think about did knows terms. This is what I want to be to really be working out that this is something that's extremely powerful in the way that it works an eighteen disorder will not only change the behavior for your child. It will also change the way that your child sees the world in order to benefit itself. Now, I just want you to think about that for a while. Now that sounds a real scary scary concept. But once you actually on the stand and eighteen disorder in those terms. The makes it easier to see when the eating disorders present within your family. And when you're eighteen disorder is at work and when you are communicating with your child's eating

"Can live a long and happy and successful life on my terms, not on the terms of bipolar disorder, not on the terms of of genetic brain disease that that puts me on. A disadvantage of dealing with emotions on a day-to-day basis without ability to have stability in my life. I can preserve and enhance the relationships around the either my current one or new ones that I can look forward to in my life and and that individual can go forth and be artistic or quirky, or sexy, or funny, or private, or introverted or extroverted, whatever they're meant to be in their life, but they can discover that person that they're meant to be separate and apart from bipolar disorder. And that's really the exciting part. And then I think it also gives people in opportunity much in the way that people like yourself are interested in helping other people give people who have bipolar disorder and seven and life and opportunity to help others and to recognize when bipolar, any kind of mental illness maybe going on in somebody around them, either a co worker or neighbor or another future family member loved one. But they can recognize that and help that person walk through their pain and lead them to positive treatment experience so they can benefit and grow as well. So it's not just about what you do for yourself. It's open how you pay that forward to others and create just a stronger community around us of which you know I'm very excited about this show. Does that many other opportunities are available for people to not feel alone, and when you've gone through treatment, if you've gone through the suffering and the challenges and the bumps in the road, you have an opportunity to help other people and there's nothing better than that. Really appreciate that. Thank you so much for being on our show, Michael. It's been a lot of fun. Well, thank you..
"disorder" Discussed on The Psych Central Show
"It's okay to talk to your doctor about how your medications may be affecting this. So we're having a an ongoing discussion that respects each other in that grand bargain that we started. And is that person kind of goes through whatever sort of crisis they may be going through that kind of aggravating, either those kind of more typical emotions or maybe aggravating the disorder itself. It's it's again an open dialogue. It's collaborative and help that person. Ultimately, the stay on course with what they need to do going forward in their treatment. So that brings up one saying, we see this too often is that people who get to that point where they're in maintenance as you say, but then they decide, hey, I'm doing great. I don't need these pills anymore. This is something that we need to get through people's heads. I think that, you know, this is a lifelong condition and you will need these pills. But we, we hear all the time people going off their meds and having to start all over again almost. And is this something that you address in your in your program? I absolutely so. Yes, yes, absolutely address it. This is part of what it is to have bipolar disorder. Just like I talked about denial as an expected. Part of that pre stabilization phase with the two of you brought up is a typical feature stabilisation. So as a person moves into that phase of care, I absolutely talk to them about their eventual inevitable desire to get off medication. And and I do sit again as part of what it is to manage polar your life that doesn't make you bad because you've had thoughts about getting off your medication. It makes you quite typical if you will in the process and what I what I usually do. My patience is is I tell them, look, you're going to think about it doesn't mean you're going to necessarily get get off of them, but you're going to think about it at some point or another, and and if and when you do let me know if you're currently therapy, bring it up. If for some reason you know we have had sessions and while give me a call, here's my phone number always. Call me when you feel this way because chances are something else is coming up in your life. The needs to be discussed beyond medications itself, because there's a particular reason why at some point you had that thought it is inevitable, but how you put it on your personal time line says something about what you're dealing with in your life, and I wanna talk about that too. Before you make that decision of whether or not you're gonna go if your mess. Now through all of the through education, they've had up to the point. They certainly know what the research is, and they certainly know my position with regard to having medications and being on them through the lifespan. But I wanna have an open dialogue about what brought them to that particular point. Whenever they arrive at that point that they stay in communication with their therapy team, their treatment team and the people who love them and care for them not to be in a judgmental way not to say, hey, you better not do this or else, but the open up dialogue about what might be going on in their life right now that sort of aggravating that thought, if you will. So you've walked us through the three steps and now you. Got a person that is that is out there living their life. What does their life look like? Now the day, their family, everybody's made it what is the prognosis for somebody with bipolar disorder to lead a relatively normal life? That's the question that if me an opportunity to give everybody good news, the good news is that bipolar disorder is very manageable disease illness, and it is in my opinion, and a lot of people have problems with those words and I get that. So I try to be careful with that and it's not meant to, you know it all to to the stigmatize it to help people understand that this is something that I have just like I could have any kind of medical disorder that's not psychiatric in nature, but something that I have to attend to, and I.

"That question right now. You're listening to eating disorder podcast. You have decided to listen to the episode. That says I want to talk to my child in a way that they're going to listen. So you've already really made the decision that something needs to be discussed. So yes, you should say something if your gut feeling is telling you that you've needed to listen to this and seek out this information, then I would say that you really do need to follow that through. So whether it's teenage behavior if you're having that discussion with yourself as to say, normal adolescent teenage behavior or not I'm really not sure there's been some changes in the way that my child talks to us all the way my touch behaves. There's there's no harm in having that conversation with your child, and then finding out that there isn't actually anything to worry about that is a potential for harm. If you don't have that conversation with your child, and there is something Torey about because she will maybe find out too much later stage. You should've had the discussion now. And so it's much better. Now that that's what you're thinking. Then have that conversation with your child now? So seeking further information I went off tangent a little bit there. But if this further information that you think you need for your child now in the UK. There was a really good charitable organization called beat now beat is the UK's national charity for eighteen disorders. And it is a I would say, it's a very very safe Goto place to get information that you know, is correct that is research and evidence based and is also has also been ratified by families and young people that have been through and adults as well that have been through each in sort themselves. So the information is very very, I guess information. He's very trustworthy. You can read it with a certain amount of knowledge that people are taken look at this information, and it was going to be useful for you. And it's going to be safe. So in the UK. Actually, even anywhere else in the world would suggest that if you look for beats beats eating disorders charity, you k-, you will get access to I hope now the reason why I say Bates go there of not really mentioning there are lots of other websites out there. And but beat is probably your first Goto place because they have lots of information on for families like you in this very situation of having one hundred that something's wrong, but really not knowing what what it is that you need to be focusing and concerned about the most so go to beat now, I can do is if you do Google search for beat eating disorders association. You will come up the first one go straight onto the website. And it actually it's really easy to navigate. Now. It used to be really quite difficult. But I have also things on there like Carris forums. So some of the questions that you might have I won't address in this podcast because we're not having a direct compensation, you can go and. To some of the CARA forms their. I'm post your questions on that. And have somebody come back too. So you can get information that way, it's a really good resource. And also at a later stage. It's a good resource for your child to go to together of mation as well. So you've had to think about your approach and yourself you've got more information about eighteen disorders. So you have a little bit more of an idea of whether some of the things that you're saying are worrying or not. But you still want to talk to your child, and I would say that you need to do that. One first things I would say is timing of this conversation is really important. Now, what I really want you to do is to make sure that you can have this conversation at a time that is quiet at a time that the likelihood is that you're not going to be interrupted. And that isn't a time limit on the amount of time that you can spend talking to your child. So don't put don't have two things that you need to do in the day. And have maybe an hour span between the conversation there. That's potentially setting up for failure in two or three different ways. Fastly it may be that isn't a convenient time to your child about between something different. It might be that the conversation when you have it runs on longer potentially than the amount on that you've given for instance, if you've got an hour and the day, but you've got something solid that you're doing before or afterwards. You don't want to find yourself in that situation where your child is opened up to you. And they are talking to you and sharing all of the concerns and worries that they have you don't want to be in this situation where you then have to shutdown that conversation to go away and do something else that's going to be very difficult on all kinds of levels. But one of the message that you will give your child is that although you wanted the conversation with them, you didn't really see as being important enough to make sure that it could carry on. They might think that if you if you had to shut it down to go do something else. They may really get feeling that actually what I'm saying wasn't important or my parents were finding it difficult. So they have to find an excuse or reason to shut it down. Okay. Now might be that you go and talk to your child within five minutes you've had to walk away because they're very very insistent that they don't want to talk to you about it. But we'll talk a little bit more about that in a minute. So timing is really important. Make sure that you've got. A quiet place to talk that maybe thorough other children in the house at that time that your partner or somebody else that you trust. He's able to be there to keep the children the children out of the way that the not putting in an interrupting you, and that you've really got that time that you can spend talking for as long as you're fails that they need to. So timing

"Hello. And welcome to this in-between us owed. I love that phrase. I think that's what they call the Matt in the potus fear of the eating disorder insights podcast. Miami's Mark tighter. I'm your host. And just wanted to come on to give you some changes to the second episode of the podcast, which is to your out in about a week's time. Now in episode one. I was talking a lot about making sure that you get medical treatment for your child, making sure that you see a professional opinion because I was being very clear about this podcast is to be used as a supplement and not to be used on its own and within that kind of set me thinking that not only the might be some of you that firstly haven't even approached your child to talk about your concerns, and Secondly have no idea on how to access services or where to go or what is the best way around it. So that gave me two more episodes to put in before we came to the episode where I. Ask or I can't talk to you about separating the eaten soldier white from your child. So we're still going to do that. But I think episode to we're going to be talking in detail about how you can approach your child in the best way how you can approach them in a way that's going to get them to listen to you more effectively. So in doing that would be talking about communication styles thinking about the kinds of things that would be useful to say and also having a little bit more of a think about yourselves as parents or carrots. Now what I mean by that is maybe thinking about some of the thoughts that you have about your current situation. Also, looking at do you have any preconceived beliefs or ideas about what you're seeing within your child because all of those things will have an impact on how you come across when you are expressing your concerns to your child. Because ultimately, the reason why you're doing that is because you want to support them you want things to change. And so you can see that there is some. K really important factors in getting that. I approach right? Not might be that you've already approach to child in your child said. There's nothing wrong. Leave me alone. There is no problem. And that doesn't always mean that there isn't. But I guess we can talk a little bit more about that. So that'll be the next podcast episode two now episode three that's where we're going to have a look at how you can best navigate the the waste through the systems to get the best support for your child now because I live in the U K, and the UK health system is the only one that I've had experience of a lot of the strategies going to be talking about asked Pacific about the UK NHS system. So any of you listening overseas, you're probably gonna need to adapt. What I'm telling you in order to fit in with the health system that you are part of so within that we're going to be looking at which is the best approach whether it would be straight to your GP, whether it would be to a pediatric team or indeed making self-referral straight through to an eating disorder, sir. Service and look in each one of those three how you do that. And how you can maximize time that you have with each of those professionals, and what is the information that you need to give them in order that they can make the refer onto the relevant service. So it's really about chaining into what you need to know. What information you need to give in order the decision and support can be accessed in the quickest way. Okay. So that will be episode three. So the original episode to subject is now going to move over to episode four times will very confusing, but in my head it makes sense. So just bear with me so episode for now that he's going to be where we are looking at the agency order specifically and thinking a little bit more about how to separate it away from your child. What are the reasons for that? What are the benefits for that? And also some of the techniques that you can use when trying to spot whether it's your child. That in distress or whether the eating disorder itself is putting pressure on US carrot to back down from a decision that you might get your child. Well, so that will take full. Okay. So hopefully, that's a little bit clearer. Now, the second point that I wanted to share with you today was I have had a look at the stats for the podcast for the first week. And I have been really really pleasantly surprised, in fact, helping quite blown away by the results that I've seen I wasn't expecting this. But within the first week this podcast is now being accessed in about five or six different countries. We have got quite a few people downloading in the UK few from America, Australia. We also seem downloads happening over in the Philippines Iceland, where else no way, I'm potent. I think so I think that so there's a good selection of people from different countries in different nations access this podcast. Now, I did not think that was going to happen within the first week. But. Clearly shows me that my thoughts around the demand for this podcast. And the I guess the pitch that I'm hoping to put up is actually hitting a for some families. Maybe there are more people out there in different countries that are needing this information. That haven't got access to it. So that's given me the motivation. I need to continue to put the podcasts out. Now. Just another couple of things I've said this before what I really want is for you. As listeners to send me in the information any questions that you've got or recovery stories that you that you'd like to make or any tips or hints or strategies that you've tried that you found really effective sends that information through to me what I will do that is used that to then for further shows. So that the shows become more. I guess yours is listeners as opposed to it just being mine the podcast host. That's what I want for this podcast for it to be quite collaborative. And for us to put our ideas together to help any other listeners that are out there. And that for me that means that the information will just be much more rich, and it will be more balanced as opposed to just be mine as a clinician okay now again. On all of a podcast Foucault. I don't see why this inbetween coach should be any different. You can contact me by emailing at podcast at

"Will help to support your child and beat the eating disorder. What better way than to have somebody with information to around the child all the time? So see yourself as a resource, you might not feel that way right now, you may feel totally helpless. You may feel as if a lot of things you try a just making things worse. But at worry that's completely normal and with support that will be able to change. So I guess you still may have the question. So what has caused this eighteen disorder? Why is it here? Why? As it moved in with our family. What labor the point, but research has shown that there are so many different components that come together to create an eighteen disorder. It can be social aspects genetic the cumby biological components that come together to just create that perfect storm, which triggers an eating disorder. I'm not going to make some sense about what your family is. We know that families can be made up in lots and lots of different ways. And no to family saw the same. It may be that your a single parent that your same sex parents or that you're adopted or foster parents or that your grandparents carrying a child or it may be that your family's made up of unrelated people friends work colleagues or people from church your family's what you decided to be. And there's no rules to that. It's whatever works for you. Now, while we're on the subject of a sumptious there are some assumptions families make when they come to treatment. And so just want to share some of them with you because it may be that you have some of those same assumptions yourself some families make the assumption that that child never going to need medical treatments or specialist inpatient treatment for their eating disorder. They had this thought that the community treatments or the support that they set up themselves is going to do the job. And now, there are some cases when? That happens. But there are lots of cases that I've worked with where the eating disorder issue so powerful that it has caused medical complications. And the children of how to spend a period of time in pediatric services or indeed the onus is so powerful that it's needed a specialist. Twenty four hour team a ranch old in order to help them to recover. So I don't want you to make such that the treatment for your child will never go that far hence, the reason again while I want you to seek that individual treatment for yourself and get your child seen by a professional. There is a train of thought and some of the families that I've met that they don't need to challenge their child, and I don't want my child to be upset throughout treatment. And it can be very scary and anxiety provoking for them when we asked them to challenge that child directly. Now a child that doesn't want to eat is not going to start to eat without a level of anxiety and fear. Now, what that means is that as a family, the aren't going to be times when you are, you know, you are going to ask you to do something that they're going to find very frightening that they're going to be upset by the is going to make them tear for that is going to make them angry, and some families feel that this needs to be avoided because they don't want to upset their child, and the can be fear that if I upset my child Tim much than the not going to eat enough. What I would say is there is no way of treating your child with eighteen disorder without having to push. Through some of those fears and some of those very strong emotions in your child. So when you are applying some of the strategies that I'm going to talk about in this podcast. And also that your treatment team will talk about there may be some level there of having to upset your child or having to do things that, you know, frightens them now as parents that's the last thing in the world that we want. We don't want agile to be upset. We don't want them to be hurt. It's inheriting our genes, I suppose his parents is that we do things that make child feel happy and may catch outfield safe. Now that goes against what we need to do in the treatment of eighteen disorder. But the end result that you want is your child to be that happy child unsafe and feel free from the worrisome thoughts, and the only way you can do that is by going through the treatment and challenging the onus itself. So there's no way of voiding the anger in the motion that's going to come out of your child. It's a necessary part of the treatment. Another assumption that sometimes my family's is that their child who will be able to recover within a period of weeks or a period of months. The reality of that is it can take a period of years sometimes for a child to fully recover from an eighteen disorder. The early treatment starts the better, the prognosis is and the shorter the treatment can be. But the reality is that no one can really say exactly when a child is going to recover from an illness. There are too many different components to consider their psychological. Those physical components. There's also emotional components. And also it depends on where your child is through their developmental stage. This lots lots of different things to consider. It's not as easy as some families feel that when my child gets to a recovery weight, and we will be saying more about to recovery white in Leith rep associates than they become well, it's not as easy as that. Also, one of the factors that a lot of families assume is that they are not going to be able to do this that they're not skilled enough that they don't have the courage that they don't have the ability to support their child. So what I would say to you is that inside you you do have the strength and the energy and the ability to support your alter the Selma's. So I want to offer that to you as with a with a sense of hope, I guess for me to hold the faith. The things can change us a family if you are determined enough, and if you are committed enough to support your child through this time, it's not gonna be an easy time for any of you. The maybe things that you're going to need temporarily give up on your life will change for a period of time. Okay. So that's the end of the first episode. So the next episode is going to look specifically at how you can separate at your child's eating disorder from your child. And the reasons why that's important to do.
