'United States of Fear' Author Dr. Mark McDonald Describes His Book

"Well, with us for the full hour, is doctor Mark McDonald. He is the author of the great book United States of fear, how America fell victim to mass delusional psychosis. I'm so excited to dive into this. I have so many questions and we met when we did a doctor's panel about a year and a half ago and I can't wait to explore this with him. Doctor, thank you so much for joining our program. Good to see you again, Charlie. It's been a while. You as well. I remember that you were you and I were joking around because of their stupid mask mandate and you talked about how damaging it could be for children, especially we're gonna dive into that. So the floor is yours. Tell us about your book. So I wrote this book in November of last year as a way to encapsulate what I saw as not a pandemic of the virus, but rather a pandemic of fear. And that's the way I've seen this from the very beginning. We have not been largely speaking in a medical crisis, at least not a real one. The real crisis is actually been psychological. I am a child, not a lesson psychiatrist. So I see people with mental illness, especially young people, which is my specialty. Every single day. And since March, April May of 2020, it's been a complete mental health disaster. So I set out to understand why. What's going on? I began writing. I began speaking and eventually, I put it all together in a book, which as you said, is called United States of fear to describe really three things. One, how did we get here? What is mass delusional psychosis? And how did it happen? What are the cultural antecedents? This didn't just show up with the virus flying over from China. It has been with us for a long time. The virus simply just germinated the seed. The second part of the book is really about masculine and feminine and how male and female and attacks on the two sexes and the two genders has been a large driving force for decades really and will continue even after this pandemic ends. And then finally, I write briefly about the way forward. How do we move ahead?

Delta Variant Linked to Troubling Spike in COVID Cases in Washington State

"Behind that in Western Washington. They are not number or reproductive rate of the virus is around three where below one is where you want to be to see new case numbers fall. Ironically, it's closer to two in eastern Washington, which has large areas with low vaccination rates. The delta Variant is the big contributing factor and has changed everything about the virus because it's more contagious, says Dr Ali Meqdad with UW medicine. Mark Dad says that combined with the large segment of the population, still unvaccinated will sustain this current surge. He here right now, but breaks to infections and people are saying, you know, when you get the vaccine, you may be infected, but still the bad seeds and highly effective against ending up in a hospital where a more so they're saving lives and protecting our hospitals. All of us need to remember what we call an epidemiology Counterfactual. If we didn't have these vaccines, and does the valiant hit us the way it's hitting us so hard and our state and in our country would have had a lot of mortality in this country. Look at house of countries where vaccination coverage is very low in Iran, For example, the mortality is going so cry to that point that that bodies, unfortunately, are being moved by taxes. We're seeing hospitals continue to fill up in part because of the code. Of its surge. But Mark Dad tells me he doesn't think Washington's hospital system will crash as his feared in other states proudly will tell you, Ryan, We are so prepared at U Dub and we have done all what it takes to be ready for research. So I don't I'm not afraid about Seattle and King County and the big cities. I'm very much concerned about community and I would stay. And of course, we are willing and ready to receive patients from elsewhere in the state. We should be able in our state to manage the search was dealt. If and only if people help us by reducing their activities, Wedding and mass and getting the vaccine. Now you heard Dr Mark Dad say one of the ways we can slow. The spread of Delta is by reducing unnecessary activities, which won't be easy since

Project Sealab 1 Report Part 2

"Today wanna conclude my two part series on the project sea lab one summer report from june of nineteen sixty five to recap impart one. I chuck through the background. Information contained in the report c. Labs sea trials and the ultimate successful placement at one hundred ninety three feet off of argo island near bermuda. You might recall that. The four aqua dots anderson barth manning in thompson had just entered a habitat on july twentieth. Nineteen sixty four for their eleven day mission first off. They needed to make repairs on all the systems that were not operable. The initial report says that the subjects sounds like a clinical experiment which i guess it was slowed their pace in that fatigue coupled with shoulder joint discomfort was noted their appetites were good and digestion and elimination where normal also the report stated that their sensory perception remained unchanged and the joint discomfort eased with time. Now there are quite a few photographs in the report of the men in and around. See lab during the mission. Unfortunately the photos are not really that. Good copy i have well. What worked did they do. According to the report the subjects performed work tasks outside of c. lab investigating marine life cleaning debris on the ocean floor surrounding c. lab taking pictures of their operations in photos of the small one man. Submersible called star one which was sent into the area for evaluation. Also described are two significant incidents that occurred during the mission one of which was a serious nature. The other was related to nitrogen narcos and that hit to team members the nitrogen narcos incident actually happened when two of the aqua noughts entered the transformer room of the lab without dr mark six gear. It says that they immediately experienced coaches had to leave and then helium was pumped in to prevent further issues with nitrogen marcos's. The more serious incident happened when manning apparently struck his gas control yoke against a habit and it accidentally closed it as he was depleting gas supply. He knew that something was wrong and made a hasty return to see and lost consciousness as he entered. Fortunately anderson heard manning's tanks see lab and found him lifted him above the water applied resuscitation and with the assistance of barth and thompson. He was saved. He remained active with the crew for the remainder of the mission. The only issue was a severe hemorrhage to the whites of his eyes on wednesday july. Twenty ninth nineteen sixty four. The mission was terminated due to unfavourable weather predictions and at twenty three fifty six. That's eleven fifty six. Pm c. lab was lifted off the bottom and the arduous task of recovering. The men and a habitat began on august. Fourth deok were taken out of decompression c. Lab equipment was packed and stowed for shipment and on april fourth nineteen sixty four at eleven thirty. A m readme. Jk laden chief of naval research congratulated sess and officially terminated c. lab one. Some interesting things were noted for example in the first paragraph of the summary. Report it states. The men during the occupancy lab accentuated their personal idiosyncrasy during one period excessive use of foul language developed as well as an independent attitude with respect to the surface support guests. They didn't appreciate papa topside trying to control them now. I want to quickly cover some of the findings. No surprise was that handling of the habitat was difficult. Especially when there were waves they also found that nitrogen percentage decreased over time as it was being absorbed by the sea water and could use compressed air to make up the o. Two since nitrogen absorbed four times faster than oh two and the helium didn't dissipate. Another finding was that the hookah system failed to perform satisfactorily. Apparently the pumps were noisy. Overloaded easily report also outlines some findings on the men one interesting note was regarding the selection process. It said that there might have been too many potential leaders leading to an unwarranted degree of independence below. The conclusions stated that human subjects could live and work under pressure and one hundred ninety three feet and while all major systems work many were primitive. The report suggested that the divers could spend six hours outside each day also provision for adequate body heating while swimming around was a major problem even though the water temperature was sixty nine degrees fahrenheit the project. Sea lab summer report concludes with a series of recommendations and those recommendations include a better handling system a higher degree of independence from surface support assigning one man full-time to housekeeping they dry vehicle for transporting and a final recommendation that a c. lab task group of twenty five to thirty five people involved in future. Rnd in the man in the programs be put in place so that concludes part two of the c. lab one office of navel research report from nineteen sixty five. We know now that c. lab to went to a successful mission before the tragic events of c. Lab three but in one thousand nine hundred sixty four at the height of the space race.

Should Emergency Rooms Be Equipped to Deal with Addiction?

"Visits to hospital emergency departments plummeted. But a new study shows more people than ever are turning up at hospitals seeking help for drug addiction and overdoses. NPR addiction correspondent Brian Mann found many emergency doctors have struggled to respond. Emergency departments are great at treating things like chest pains and asthma attacks After the pandemic hit. A lot of those people stopped showing up at hospitals. They were scared of catching the coronavirus. But Kristin Holland, a researcher at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, says patients experiencing addiction needed help. So desperately They kept coming. The thing that really stood out to me about all drug overdoses and opioid overdoses. Those were the only two for which we saw. An increase. Holden study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, analyzed roughly 190 million emergency room visits. The data shows even people who didn't catch the coronavirus were hit hard by the pandemic. People are indeed experiencing poor mental health, suicidal thoughts, substance use, potentially as a coping mechanism. But there's a problem. Experts say Many emergency departments aren't well staffed or trained to help patients with these kinds of problems. Dr. Mark Rosenberg is president of the American College of Emergency Physicians. Emergency physicians have always been able to treat the overdose, but we did not have tools to treat the addiction. Or the dependency. Rosenberg's organization has worked for years to convince emergency departments to improve addiction care. But he says, reform has come slowly. He points to the fact that most emergency doctors still don't use buprenorphine. It's a drug proven to help people with opioid addiction, avoid relapse. Only one third patients get medications for Opioid use disorder in the emergency department. Experts say regulatory hurdles and stigma around people with drug use disorders have kept many emergency departments from improving their addiction care. Dr Stephen Veal heads the emergency team at Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach, Florida. I think there was a lot of hesitancy because it's not what we've done. It's not what I've trained in, and it seems like somebody else should do it. But I think that what finally pushed emergency physicians out of their comfort zone to do something is just the number of people that we've seen die. After a spate of overdose deaths. Three years ago, Veal changed his department using buprenorphine and also adding a new member to his team. Larry Brooks is a trained addiction counselor who now works with patients in the ER as soon as they're revived the overdose patients that comment to an emergency room They're at their most vulnerable. They're at their lowest point that they've ever experienced. You know, the you know, been dead. Or at least near dead. And brought back to life during the pandemic. Brooks Hospital has seen a new spike in drug cases, Brooke says. It's made a big difference. Having an addiction program in place. This is the best time for us. As health organization and a community as a whole. To make an impact and say, Look, somebody is here. You're not going to get kicked right back out the door and go into withdrawal and have to find something else and then be back here in two hours, But experts say emergency Department addiction programs like this are still rare. CDC researcher Kristin Holland says she hopes data from her study will convince more hospitals to change our takeaway from this is meeting people where they are and if people are coming to the emergency department for these outcomes, that's where we need to meet them. Well, death from covert 19 have dropped from their peak. The CDC has fatal overdoses nationwide keep rising with more than 220 drug day. Brian Mann NPR news

"State's Corona virus vaccine policy today, saying that 40% of all vaccine doses are being reserved for people most at risk of getting the virus. California's vaccine strategy will be one focused on equity. With roughly 40% of the cove in cases and deaths being concentrated in communities that makeup just less than 25% of our population. Dr. Mark tally is the state's health and human services secretary. He says the doses will be spread out among 400 zip codes and reach about eight million people.

Could This Simple Hack Reduce Anxiety and Panic Attacks? with Dr. Kristen Allott

"Dr analogy welcome to the broken brain podcast. It's an honor and a privilege to have you here. Thank you so much drew. I am so excited for this conversation. I think it'll be just fine Back and forth to share information. Yeah i love what. You're bringing to the world in this topic of anxiety and i think that we zoom out in the context of the current world even prior to cove nineteen pandemic anxiety. You could see that. The instances and usage of the word in just general language newspaper social media is skyrocketing and you know languages so powerful and sometimes we really have to parse apart a word to really understand like what do we really mean when we're saying that because sometimes we say anxiety and we actually could be meaning something else when you talk about this world of anxiety and your new book which we're going to get into in a little bit. What do you really want people to help understand. What exactly is anxiety. Yeah so i think that's a great question. And i will just tell you how i approach that When i started in practice about fifteen years ago Because i'm a naturopathic physician acupuncturist decided to specialize in mental health. And people were coming in. And saying i'm anxious and and i just didn't think it was like so. How does that apply. Physiology was really the question that i was interested in and because some for some people it's stress for some people. It's i'm afraid to move forward and take a step forward for some people. It's a i'm overwhelmed like there's all sorts you know. It's a catch word as you say. And but there's also a curious about what the physiology of depression or anxiety or whatever these words were saying. And and so i. When i started in practice i literally in my on my living room floor. I had stock physiology textbooks a stack of neurology. Textbooks and the dsm and the dsm is the diagnostic statistical manual. It just describes. What the diagnosis categories for anxiety are and i was just like will. I think it's more than just an emotion like a candy but like the people were coming in with panic. Attacks like that is not an emotion that is a full embodied experience right. And and so i started just parsing out like what are the. What are the fizzy. What physiology causes these physical symptoms of shaky and racing thoughts and your heart racine. And maybe you're sweating and and all those symptoms that you know sometimes it starts small and Escalates to really big asu started to parse that out and then was like well. Once once i started to understand the physiology in the neuro physiology will. Where do we. Where can we intervene to help. People feel better and so answering your questions kind of copying out. But it's like. That's that's the approach that i took because so many people were using words and i was like i want a grounded in something concrete. Absolutely i mean if we look at the history and evolution of just anxiety and a lot of mental health. A lot of these things in early medicine were considered to be They're kind of in your head right like nothing else is going on right. We made a documentary a few years ago. Which then led to the name of this podcast. Broken brain my business partner. Dear friend dr mark hyman. We made a documentary called broken brain and the underlying premise. That documentary was what you do to your body you do to your brain. Your brain is not in. This isolated eight oregon that just as floating on top of your head. That's completely disconnected than the rest of everything. That's going on there actually an intertwined system and we have to understand that yes there can be. Let's call for lack of a better term emotional factors that are there right. Stressor is the complete driver of so many different things that we feel but let's also look at the physiology of what's happening underneath so when it comes to that topic of anxiety and the physiology gonna ask you a question which is a question that i came across a few years ago in a book by peter thiel little bit of a controversial character. But i really love this question that he had inside of this book. I think the book is called zero to one and he said what truth do you believe is true that other people disagree with in that category. So when you look at right what do you believe is true when you think about anxiety and physiology that people maybe traditional western medicine will say like. I don't know if that's true. Yeah so The one truth. That i see time and time again is it is really hard to have a panic attack. If you just ate. And i don't see panic. Attacks occur unless people are five hours from food or more at or they may have eaten some really sugary substance to at two hours ago. But if you had a real meal. It is really hard to have a panic attack. That's powerful right. There and people like that is not true and and the same applies to suicidal Which is know just part of the spectrum of people keep doing doing panic attacks they can get there and and and and the reason for that is that are i mean i can go into the physiology but but people don't believe that until they start looking mental health professionals or physicians and then when they want start looking at the pattern it holds true. Now there's always an exception to the rule ways but it holds like ninety five percent true

Nearly 3.6 million vaccine doses have been administered in a state of roughly 40 million people. California's Health and Human Services Secretary Dr Mark Galley said today. The state is working on ways to up equity in vaccine administration. I want to start by talking about the this notion that there's a choice that we have to make between speed and vaccinations and equity. This is not a choice. This is a false choice we can do, Galli says they're looking at incentivizing people that may include payments to providers for bringing vaccines to the hardest hit communities. Details on how the plan would work is not immediately available. California has not yet released the breakdown of vaccine administration by factors like race or ethnicity.

California reveals data used to lift stay-at-home order

"To ditch the regional stay at home order came as a surprise for many officials said that data and science led to the change yesterday back to a tear based system, but some were still confused as to what that exactly meant. Today, California's Health and Human Services secretary, Dr Mark Galle gave some more clarity on the move. He says it all comes down to ICU projections. We know today's Cases become hospital cases in about two weeks. I see you cases 3 to 4 weeks later. So if we want to really determine what the impact is on where we're gonna be in the hospitals, we have to look about four weeks out. Charlie says the state used to set of formulas for the original restrictions. So they basically calculated how many new cases there are. Many of those people are expected to be in the hospital, and I see you and how many ICU beds there are in total. Today, the state reporting roughly 18,000 new covert 19 patients in the hospital, not new currently and more than 4300 of those are in the ICU. Well as the state remains in the grip of the covert pandemic. Not everyone is celebrating Governor Newsom's decision to end stay at home orders.

US officials express concern over possible shortage of COVID-19 vaccine

"More more than than 3000 3000 people people dying dying from from Corona Corona virus virus every every day day here here in in this this country. country. There There is is a a sign sign of progress. Though the number of new cases is declining significantly, vaccines are the key to making sure that trend continues. But getting the vaccines where they need to go has been problematic. NPR's Allison Aubrey joins us now. Hi, Allison. Good morning, Rachel. All right. We're gonna start with some numbers about 22 million shots have been given which is good. That's about half of the total doses that have been distributed across the country, though. So you've got 20 million other doses available. And yet some cities in hospitals say they're running out of the vaccine. How is this disconnect? Explain this, right? Okay, so I know it sounds counterintuitive, but they're actually two things happening at once. Right? Okay. So manufacturing is accelerating. Visor and Madonna have distributed more than 40 million doses around the country to every county, every state. But many more people are now eligible to get the shot at a time when states are just figuring out logistically Rachel how to scale this up, and that's creating a bottleneck. I mean, some places they're doing better than others. I spoke to Dr Mark Boom, he's CEO of Houston Methodist, part of the colossal Texas Medical Center system. Now they're using doses as fast as they can receive them. But it's not enough. Each week. We run out waiting for our next shipment. It's really a supply constraints issue. We coordinate across our city's about doing this as quickly as possible. So we're confident we can do this. As a community. It's just a matter of getting more supplied more quickly. Yeah. So at this moment, the vaccines are still think of them as a scarce resource, and that creates anxiety. It creates confusion right and this helps account for all these stories. We're hearing about people who get an appointment to get the vaccine, and then they get a phone call or an email saying your appointment's been canceled or postponed. So, I mean, can the vaccine makers just produce market they produce enough to help meet the demand and the Biden administration's goal of 100 million doses in 100 days? Well, you know, administration officials think so and look to be fair, even as the new administration came in last week about a million doses a day were already being administered, which is what's needed to meet that goal if we stay on track, but there are now lots of head winds to keep this going, White House Chief Chief of Staff Ron Clean said on NBC yesterday. There are multiple challenges. It's a very complex process that needs help on all fronts. We need more vaccine. We need more vaccinate whores. We need more vaccination sites. So he's saying there's a lot of challenges there, including the need to produce more vaccines, huh? That's right. We got to go back to that. I mean Fizer of modern it need to deliver millions of more doses per week. Rachel to stay on track, and this is tricky. These companies have to scale up factory capacity deal with supply chain issues. And remember this is brand new. It's the first time I am already technology has been used at this massive scale. I spoke to Dr Josh Sharfstein of Johns Hopkins University. He's been being considered for the top posted the FDA, he says. Given how complicated this is the urgency, Majorino, Fizer and other companies may need help, including maybe the use of the Defense production act to boost shortfalls. Just hoping that the company's alone will come through may not be enough. And so one of the key aspects of the Biden plan is to roll up the government sleeves and say, How can we make sure you have the supplies? You need the machines you need and potentially even expand your production capacity. So big picture here, Rachel, this is going to take some time. Many months. I mean, another potential challenge occurs to me. What about folks who've gotten their first dose? Right? This is a two does vaccine So they've gotten the first shot. But what if they can't get the second shot on time? Is that okay? What? Mm. The CDC says the second dose should be administered as close to the recommended intervals possible, which is three weeks for the fire, Sir vaccine four weeks for the Madonna vaccine. However, if this isn't feasible, that agency says the second dose can be delayed administered up to 42 days after the first toast. I spoke to physician Gabe Kelen at Johns Hopkins University about this. He's overseeing the vaccine distribution there at the university. So in their preliminary studies, you know when they looked at what is the shortest reasonable time to give a booster turned out to be three weeks and four weeks? That doesn't mean giving the booster at six weeks isn't justice affected for longer term? Community. You know, he says there is limited data here, so no one knows exactly how long this gonna extend out. But it makes good sense that there's legal room here.

"Now. This is a powerful message that people need to hear because of times when people get some sort of disease or illness like say diabetes. They like to say well. It's hereditary because it's in my family. It's in my jeans. I was going to get it anyway. Nothing much i could do but the reality is that science shows us that a lot of these so-called hereditary diseases don't necessarily have to be your destiny. The reality is that if you change your lifestyle because a lot of these things are lifestyle diseases. They're not necessarily genetic. Your genes determined that you have a predisposition towards certain ailments. It doesn't necessarily mean that you have to accept. You will get that almond if you adjust your lifestyle your diet. Then chances are you can avoid or at least postpone or delay those kind of illnesses and diseases and symptoms and this is something that i got from dr mark hyman.

I don't know what to expect. I am absolutely totally prepared as I told you in our conversations, I have twenty eight pages of notes. But that doesn't mean I have to use any one of them. That's not how do the show? I JUST WANNA be prepared at best. To do what I need to do because I. Read Your Book through twice. Once every word, and then once going through the notes and writing out everything and. I loved your book. Has It was but I? Love you even more. Honestly I. Are you upset that we didn't know? No, Gosh? No, no, be because in a way. We are talking about it, because I think you know when when you started talking about. Would you help me? Right. I think one of the things that we tried to do instead. Is We say this is what I want. and. So this is what we're GONNA. Do and and I think we're trying to do the right things but I think you talk about a couple of things like we have blind spots where we? Talked about the motorcycle in the rear view mirror that we can't see and drive a car over, but we. We have so many blind spots because I think we're so. Correct me if I'm wrong here, but I feel like sometimes we are so ego centric in our own point of view that it's so difficult for us to get over to the other side. Totally I. WanNA I WANNA. Make sure that I. Can you hear me John Yeah? You're fine. Yeah, Go Hell I. WanNa. Leave your audience in you with a magic hack, which turns a blind spot into. You might get lucky tonight. I just wanted to tell you that. Every part of my boards just went lit up. That's awesome. Let's just had somebody who just wrote in and said this is awesome. I just purchased his book on audible.

Just listen became the topic on listening in the World Twenty five languages. And then as a book called talking to crazy how to deal with people that drive you crazy, but here's the quick hack you use this. It will change your relationship. So if you're in the middle of kind of an argument. With someone and you're both loading to say things to just make it worse at some point. Instead of loading, let the other person say what they're gonNA say. Pause remember poised begins with a pause. Look them in the eye. And not intimidating the look them in the I. Like really want to know what's going on underneath. It's going to change the energy and you say to them. It's what I call. The FUDD Crud some all book talking into crazy. And you look at them and you say. You sound frustrated and I. Think you're holding back. And they're going to go. And you look them in the eye, and you say sound frustrated and I. Think you're holding back because I think you're also upset and disappointed. Can you tell me well? Those are about. And you're giving them the chance to get stuff author chess safely. which if they started to vintage you? You get defensive or call them names. But what you're doing is like you're putting a syringe and draining abscess. And then when they tell you what they're frustrated about. You don't get defensive and you say. Give me an example and you go whoa, and what upsets you about me. I'll tell you that and when you get through those they're going to be calmer. Going to say and what are you disappointed about? And they're going to say that. It's going to be very calm and when you do this. I coached one of my people I coach a woman to say this to to a to her husband. And And the end. You know.

"You're like you're like. Drinking from a fire. I'm apple. Ramp Myself Up I. was I can't take a nap on your show. That's for sure. I want to demonstrate something because there's a saying at least in Hollywood I'm not that far from it even though we're all isolated. It's better to show than to tell so. I'm going to demonstrate something far. Listeners in for you about how to be more influential. One of the things unfortunate to do is i. On on break now, but I breakfast would Larry King every day. Although we're doing zoom calls now and something. I've noticed about Larry because Larry eighty-six. He's still going strong. Still has a show. It streamed call Larry King now on home on the on the Internet and something I've noticed what has made Larry's such an icon. Is. Here's A. Plus after. and not a minus sir, and not a topper. What that means is when he listens to people. He adds to what they're saying. He doesn't a minus it he doesn't. Get Defensive. He doesn't give advice. He doesn't give unsolicited advice on his shows, so nobody's afraid. They're going to get a GOTCHA. And he's not a topper. If you say I if you say Oh, I went to the mountains, he he's not going to say oh. That's very nice. You know we went to Europe. And, so I'm going to be a plus to something. You just said I. Hope this will add value. You're listening because you mentioned something about training and I was thinking as you were talking about and I'm. And I'm reminded of a fellow named Dan Sullivan. Dan Sullivan found something called the strategic coach and part of what Dan said is what life get comes down to his habits. Happy People have different habits than unhappy people. Successful people have different habits than unsuccessful people. And he said what a habit is is it's a discrete piece of behavior that you repeat over and over again until it becomes a habit. And it takes about a month, and in other words you train on that and you repeat on that takes discipline, but over time you internalize it, and it becomes more natural, and then you can learn another habit now why this is important under stress because I'm am a psychiatrist, but I'm also a passionate about neuroscience. Is. What happens is when we're under stress and who isn't. We have you've all heard of your adrenal glands? And what happens is your adrenal guns. Put out something called Cortisol. High Cortisol is high stress and what happens is your high cortisol triggers something in your brain called your middle and Migdal as part of your emotional brain, and when that high cortisol goes up. What happens is it triggers a migdal hijack and what that means. Is Your Migdal shunts blood away from your thinking brain. Into your survival brain and guess what taps into your training. It will tap in to what you've been trained to do almost automatically. Do you think NBA stars when. They think between shots. No, it's training and they've been trained. What what's the saying? It May Have Been Stephen, Covey senior, or someone said you need. What is it ten thousand? What does it take to be come an expert? He said was at ten thousand hours. As a ten thousand hours or know that's probably more training in many of us however. Yeah thousands of hours. Thousands of hours and what happens is you become an expert at it, so you don't even have to think when you're faced with a situation, so I can't emphasize what Jay is saying. Strongly enough train train train train so that you have many many options, no matter what something whatever is. Facing you years ago I, was a fan of tiger woods during his heyday, and it was interesting when someone asked him. How do you play around the Gulf? He says. I've hit every shot possible ten thousand times, so he's an expert in every shot. He said every time I hit a shot. I don't race ahead I. don't worry about it because I know. I've trained and hit whatever SEAN I'M GONNA face. Ten Thousand Times and he says what I do is i. just you know, have a nice walk dot, breathe and feel okay. Don't worry I get on top of the shot I. Look at where I'm GonNa next hit it I know I've hit it at ten thousand times. I look at the ball and I. Just say one word execute. And so I love what you're saying about. The Training Training Training and And I know for a lot of listeners. In these times you're overwhelmed. OVERWHELMED WITH! I can train and I'm just trying to make it through the day. I'll tell you another bit of training. That I learned from a friend of mine. His name was Bob. ECKERD he was the CEO of Mattel. And I asked I asked Bob. How do you deal with stress? and. I'll tell a quick story if that's okay, sure absolutely story. So he told me. He said that before he wasn't Mattel and he's left Mattel. Now is an investment company, but he really turned mattel. Ron Big time. And he said before that he was the CEO of Craft in Chicago and when he started at kraft, he was I may president of the cheese division. And in two months time, the dairy prices went up. And so craft, Gary. Prices went up, and then they went down, but it was written into the bylaws of craft that they didn't lower their prices, so the independence lowered the prices when the prices went down, but kraft didn't. And he had no say over that he was just the president of the division. He unwritten all the protocols, and so the newspaper there was all these headlines. Heads are GonNa Roll at craft. It's going to be the end of craft. Because Cheese was a big division biggest. Division. And he told me he said you know. I was just in a funk and staring. Into the TV screen on a Sunday and the. Coach of the Cincinnati Bengals Sam Wash. And taken the Bengals to the Super Bowl two years earlier, they'd lost, but he took him to the Super Bowl. But this year they had lost ten games in a row. And Bob said I'm just staring at the TV. And the report says to. Sam, so Sam. What are you GONNA do. You're going to be fired on Tuesday. What do you think about that? and Bob said it was as if he was speaking to me. Sam Weiss looked out on the television and said. You know what I'm going to be fired. On Tuesday I know I'm going to be fired on Tuesday. Everybody knows I'm going to be fired on Tuesday But, that doesn't matter. What matters is what can I do between Sunday and Tuesday to make the Bengals a better team? So what Bob adapted I think it's a great philosophy to get through stressful times, and he used it to get through rough times at Mattel. Is. He said before he goes to bed. He says to himself, and he writes down. What can I get done? That's different. Than what can I do, but what can I get done by the end of tomorrow? To Make Mattel, a better company. What can I get done by the end of tomorrow to be a better husband to be a better dead? And when you write that down when you train yourself to get into that habit to it for thirty days, it'll become natural. You can go to bed. Easier, you can change it when you wake up in the morning, but again it's one of those trainings. What can I get done? To Make My. To make my team more successful to make me were successful. If I'm looking for a job to be a more effective and looking for a job so right that. That question before you go to bed. Train yourself to do it. And you might be able to get to sleep without having to take some of those magic. His name is Dr Mark Allston. A.

The best advice from the world's smartest and most interesting people by asking them just five questions. My guest today is bestselling author and founder of the Ultra Wellness Center. Dr Mark Hyman born in New York. Mark moved to Idaho after graduating from medical school. Then he worked as an emergency room doctor nostitz before becoming the CO medical director at Canyon ranch after leaving the ranch. She opened the ultra wellness center over the past seven years mark has written countless bestselling books including his latest entitled food.

He is the medical director at the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine in as a medical advisor to bill and Hillary Clinton as who went from eating fast food and hot dogs on George Foreman grills to being Pasqua -Tarian. I have an appreciation for food as it relates to our health. That's why I wanted mark to share his insights with all of you because eating healthy transform my life and it can do the same for you. How did you originally get into the medical field? Well I was studying. Buddhism believe it or not in college and took a class called the medicine Buddha and begin to understand the nature of spirituality and healing connected and I WANNA be among rabbi and figured out so I I decided to go into medicine it was a way of serving and I believe that the the ideal they still do that. You know we're here contribution. There's so much information about what to eat. What not heat online. How do you know what to trust? It's really important to learn how to be a critical reader of the media and the science and doctors are taught. That's for the most part. Certainly most patricians are most government bodies. Give recommendations are it and here's the real simple answer. There's two kinds of stats that are worth looking at. One is population. Studies will Biaggi that takes people over long periods of time follows a behavior habits. And see if there's a correlation so eggs cause heart disease but it's not really that causes it. It's a correlation and most of the nutritional centres we have our correlation studies which do not prove cause and effect so study of women. Over fifty five six I would conclude with sex never leads to pregnancy the study. The purpose accurate. But it's completely invalid so what we do those kinds of analyses we we see these headlines. Extra kill people you know. Coconut oil is going to kill you and people get so confused. We have to begin to look at whether it's a randomized controlled trial or an experiment. Which means you take two people. You can have them. You know one treatment and half of them another treatment and see how they compare. That's the way determine what's true or not and most of us when we look at a paper headliner. Study aren't thinking about that. We're seeing owners are the correlation and that's the problem so it's time to think through that and it's important but I would not take every headline as Gospel Click big and you should be smarter to them. How do you structure guys? You're getting enough sleep in how you're taking everything into account because it seems like especially pursuing just starting to try and break negative habits. Bad Habits like this would relate son. Is it one time it's prescription to the by is really important and then connected to the house and it's a skill like anything else. I mean I can cook three meals a day from scratch whole foods in thirty minutes toll for offerings. But it's a skill. I learned out exercise into my life and structure my days that I can do the things I want in and this morning meditated today mock exercise tomorrow morning to visit. I know I play the meditation session afternoon and and control what eating in where I'm going so it's really about skilled at all. Men Learning how to practice the skills it help sustain you and actually invigorating overtime. The World Health Organization came out and said that as an occupational phenomenon. Recently what's the best way to prevent burnt out any food part of that you know? It's interesting mental. Health issues are rampant in fact In terms of overall effect quality of life it's the number one health bird around the world and also cost burden becomes particularly Lack of being gauged in a society as an active member. The solution solution in part is figuring out how to connect mental health with those behaviors generate mental health or social behaviors.

So I'm gonna take questions for the next ten fifteen minutes for I let you guys go. So does anybody have anything? Good to ask. Yes, ma'am, your name. And at what what gradient or what grade you in. What what? I don't know what he say. What year my name is aleisha Namibia's too. And my question is since I know you're from California as well. And LA Hoya sounds great. How do I find a place that I want to live and practice in? That's not going to be the Loa 'cause you're in Arizona rate. Yes, I'm in Arizona. And I love Arizona. But I am I'm a beach kid. So I do miss it. So, you know, I get to the ocean as much as I can what I would do is. I would I would look into some resources that are good at studying demographics. Demographics dot com is a great one also lots of different resources out there. So if you pick a region, you can say, hey, look, I wanna live somewhere in the south west or I wanna live in California somewhere, can you? Find me a soft spot where there is actually favorable demographics and a good demographic company will actually be able to find that area for you. Then you go out and visit you see if you have if you're feeling it. And if you are you can look to see if there's you know areas where you could. A startup if that's what you're interested in doing or you can acquire practices. Well, K. It's it's that's the best way to go. Do the demographic research first, and then go and fall in love with the place don't decide that you have to live in this particular area. And you know, you you just have to be flexible, you could still live in a great place. There's still lots of pockets here, and there in very very desirable places. So that's how I would handle it that cycle. Everybody else. Max Muth second year as well. So after you educating us a little bit more on startup versus acquisition if you did want to do the acquisition route. But you go in find practices that are, you know, at this sixty eight to seventy two percent, you know, making all these mistakes and stuff like that. Would it be a smarter route to just bite the bullet and do the startup or go with an acquisition of a practice somewhat failing? And then just try to you know, turn it around which your suggestion on that..

They've been in your office for forty five minutes, we've treated pretty well. We're battling indifference as best. We can guess what happens. At the end of forty five minutes. We gotta tell them that their treatment plan is ten thousand dollars. That's a big fricken. Ask after known somebody for forty five minutes, forty five minutes. Hi, how you doing? I'm glad you like cats. I love cherry pie to it'll be ten thousand dollars. That's a big ask. And the ability to be able to build that trust in a short period of time is something that takes a lot of practice. It takes a lot of intention -ality. And like I said before most people that don't know how to build rapport and don't how to have a good conversation and don't have built trust don't know that they don't know how to do that. Sedikh a good hard look at how your systems are. And whether or not you're actually good at building report and trust. Have you given your team all the sport and resources to become successful?

I know that there are specialists in this room right now. And I love you very much, and I respect what you do very very much, but the evolution of continuing education. The volition of people like Dr Justin moody who are teaching the new generation of general dentists had to do surgery correctly. How to do IV sedation correctly. How do you Pero surgery correctly? How to do adult Ortho an adolescent Ortho correctly how to do molar Endo correctly. Those are the pioneers that are blazing the trail for the new general dentists of the world and without those pioneers without those innovators without people that were willing to take EROs. There would be no progress in our profession how about this one. The best clinicians will always have the busiest practices. I can literally remember a handful of times when I had instructors tell me this exact sentence. Focus on your clinical work. Mark don't worry about the business stuff. If you become the best clinician that you could possibly be the world will find you. The business will take care of itself is that true in today's climate. If I was a five star Michelin chef right down the street here in Scottsdale. And nobody knew that I was there. It wouldn't matter. How many stars I had after my name? If nobody knew that. I was there. My restaurant would fail at it is the same exact thing for dentistry, and when it comes down to this ethical dilemma of whether or not it's ethical to tell people that you exist.

That is a practicing dentist would say with a Mullah root canal. Prepping a good crown dropping an implant doing anything clinically in dentistry. Nobody would ever say learning biochemistry learning histology learning, gross anatomy, nobody out there would say, you know, what it's not that important. I can teach myself that, but for some reason people in our profession think that they can just kind of figure out the business stuff will the business stuff like it or not is just as important as the clinical stuff. And I know that makes some people cringe, and I might be contrarian, and I might take some EROs for that. But I'm willing to say it the business stuff the practice. Management stuff is just as important as the clinical stuff. If you want to own your own practice or group of dental practices. So let's talk about sample size. So similize we talked about this.

"Ignorance and arrogance often Rask raid themselves as intelligence how many people do you think? How many thousands of people? Do you think if you look at the death of a woman, the death of her baby how many people do you think would have been saved without the pride in ignorance of those physicians that refused to wash their hands. Even in the face of all of that evidence lesson number four the ability to build report and communicate well are two of the most important skills to develop. Now, I love you all and I'm one of you. But in my travels, I have noticed a common trend that dentists aren't always the best communicators, and the people that don't know how to have a good conversation. Usually don't know that they don't know how to have a good conversation and imagine how many thousands of lives would have been saved if symbol vice knew how to build repore with his superiors if several vice understood the power of building relationships if he knew how to play that political game. I know it gives us a bad taste in our mouth. But how many thousands of people would have been saved if he just knew how to play the game. And he knew how to shook shake hands and smile and build relationships like it or not it's one of the most valuable traits that anybody in the world can gain and develop. So let's talk about dentistry, then what are some accepted views in dentistry. From previous generations that are no longer generally accepted. How about this one marketing and advertising and sales in dentistry is unethical. Now, I'm with you. There's a lot of advertising right now. There's a lot of marketing that dilutes the value of our profession. There's a lot of marketing that is commodity in our profession. A lot of that comes from large corporations run by people who are not clinicians and have never sat. In the chairs that we sit in every single day. However, it wasn't that long ago when it was considered unethical to have anything beyond a small placard on the front door of your office. It was not that long ago the pioneers the people that were brave enough to step outside of conventional wisdom slowly started advertising. Slowly started putting ads in the yellow pages. Slowly started sending out postcards advertising in the newspaper on the radio on television. Is that good for the profession or not? Well, that's up for debate. But times of changed, right? Six thousand new dentists hit the streets every single year sixty five dental schools around the country.

"The autopsies were being performed with bare hands in the afternoons, the same physicians and same medical residents were performing examinations and delivering babies barehanded often with the same instruments that they had just used to perform the autopsies. How come nobody could figure this out? Some of is concluded that there was there must be particles or substances something that he couldn't explain that were being transferred from the cadavers to the live patients spreading disease in a moment of brilliance. He decided to institute a routine of vigorous handwashing with a solution of quarrying and lime. Just what happened? Deaths dropped by ninety percent within weeks of the new regime regimen. Hallelujah. Happy day, happy ending. That's the end of the story. Right. That'd be a really short presentation. What happened was there was a tragic twist to the story because it might have been idea before its time. What I mean by that? Despite the fact that handwashing reduce mortality rates to less than seven to less than one percent. In most cases, some allies could offer no acceptable scientific explanation for why the deaths dropped it was rejected by the medical community. Even though he had this anecdotal evidence in this huge success at his hospital his protocol and conclusions conflicted with established scientific opinions of the time. They believed it was my asthma. It was rejected. Once again, here's the most frustrating one this one we can wrap our heads around many doctors were insulted by the suggestion that they should wash their hands. They didn't like the insinuation that. They weren't gentlemen and had unclean hands and could be potentially responsible for spreading disease. So the scientific community and the medical community rejected his hypothesis. It might have been the right message with the wrong messenger. Although he was passionate about a radical deaths associated with child bed fever Semel. Wise was described as a poor communicator with bullying abrasive style. He was eventually fired from his post at Vienna General Hospital and once he departed his hand, washing regime was abandoned immediately and the death rates spiked again. His inability to convince the world of his findings led him to a mental breakdown. He was committed to an asylum where he was beaten badly. His injuries became infected and he died of sepsis at the age of forty seven ironically from nearly the same symptoms that had killed all the women that had child bed fever under his care. Eventually there was widespread. Acceptance sadly, some ISIS protocols eventually earned widespread acceptance, but only years after his death. Louis Pasteur continued his research and confirm several vices observations on the germ theory. Joseph Lister continued with pastors work and used hygenic protocols with great success and was the first person to perform an antiseptic surgery. Listerine was named after Lister as a gesture of respect by its inventor Joseph Lawrence for his contributions to medicine and science just a little bit of history. I know what you're all thinking finally linked to dentistry. A little bit history. Listerine was originally adopted and created as an anesthetic for surgeries, and it was used successfully for many many years. All right. What can we learn from this, dude?

You none of you three would have ever been born. I'm so so grateful for that. I'm grateful that I had a breakdown after my first six practices. I'm grateful that I didn't recognize that. There is such a thing called delegation systems ation, I'm grateful that although my practices were successful. I was a failure in every other area of my life. My four future score was zero out of ten for mindfulness for meaning relationships for my my fitness level and my movement, but it was a ten out of ten for my finances. I'm so grateful that I had that opportunity. I'm grateful that I sold four of those practices and had seven figures of cash in a Bank account. And I didn't know what to do with it. I'm so grateful for that of so grateful that I lost several hundred thousand dollars by car washes and residential real estate and trying to be an options trader, I'm so grateful for that experience. Everything that I've done every failure that I've had every challenge that I've ever experienced has led me to this point right here today. Speaking to you guys today. I'm so blessed that I failed so many times of so blessed all my challenges. This is one of my favorite books. The obstacle is the way. By Ryan holiday, and it's a primer about stoicism stoic philosophy. His one of his one of my favorite quotes from the book in life. It doesn't matter. What happens to you? Or where you came from a matters. What you do with what happens and what you've been given. That's by Ryan holiday. So every single person in here guys right now, you are somewhere. You want to be somewhere else? We all live in the gap between where you want where you are now. And where you wanna be part of where you are right now is a bunch of challenges and frustrations and expectations that you haven't lived up to yet in your life. Everything that you guys have in your life right now. That's not exactly where he wanted to be is a blessing is a blessing and the more challenging it is the bigger blessing. You have I just interviewed a guy. I don't know if any of you guys heard it his name was Steve. Lawton here it he just wrote a book called headfirst. Thanks for phoning podcast is she had. It was it was last week. Steve Lawton, he wrote a book called headfirst. She was skimmed on black diamond any came out of his skis. Somehow any hit a tree going forty five miles an hour, head first broke, basically every bone in his body is brain was fractured. He had bleeding in the brain. It was a very very very traumatic injury. And it basically wiped him out for six months. Couldn't could see couldn't hear couldn't talk couldn't walk for about six months and eventually because of his positivity and his will to live. He came to the other side of that. And he says that the biggest blessing in his life was that accident. Sometimes our biggest challenges are biggest opportunities in our biggest blessings, so I want you guys to focus on any challenge that you have going on right now in your life. And remember that it's your biggest blessing. I honestly believe it dental students come up to me all the time like cut, you are so lucky. I'm like, yeah. I am lucky. I'm so lucky that I'm such a failure. That's has fueled every single thing in my life to this point. Anybody read this book called you can't hurt me by David Dogan's yet? David Goggin is a ex-navy seal. I think the toughest man alive. But I think he needs to take one of our courses because he is not successful in all quadrants of his four futures because he's been married three times. But this dude is about as tough as it gets his his one of his my favorite quotes from him..

Thirty percent goes to st- two doctors Dr pay twenty five percent goes to profitability. Okay. What just happened Mark? How come now? Twenty five percent is acceptable for the staff. What's happening in phase three as we have a very very tangible and focused approach to ramping up production. How'd you decrease variable expenses by paying attention and the Goshi eating with your vendors? How do you decrease thick fixed expenses payroll being one of them? How? You have to increase revenue. That's right. So after face to during face to an interface three we're focusing really really hard on increasing revenue now because the business is running like a top.

We're ramping up the revenue, and that's by nature. Decreasing the fixed expenses like payroll like rent that percentage of rent is going to go down.

We've partnered up with divergent dental, and we can track so many things we have such a high level of sophistication when it comes to data capture and analysis that we can really steer the ship. Now, very very well with Jake's reporting and overhead tracking and the custom analytics divergent, we really really excel in this area now, so we're talking about KPI analysis profitability analysis. Historical analysis debt analysis benchmarking and growth metrics, Dr Glenn how are you on a scale of one to five in overhead and cash flow control. And then new patient acquisition. Everybody.

In fact, when I was talking to Dr Glenn he says what I really think we need to get more new patients and ramp up production on thinking about taking an implant course. Dr Glenn right now your ship is sinking at a rapid rate. And you're talking about rearranging the chairs on the deck. We do not want to dump more cargo into this boat right now we need to keep this boat from sinking. Prioritizing, so many dentists won a focus on what they're good at. We are comfortable being physicians of the oral cavity. And providing clinical care and producing more the way to produce more is to get more patients to pay more money in marketing, I have a different strategy.

I start talking about the elite practice mastermind blueprint. So the blueprint is the five pillars that I believe that you have to master in order to have an elite level dental practice. But also this blueprint helps you to audit where you are in the five different areas that the five different primary areas of practice growth and practice systems ation. So hopefully, you guys get a lot out of this. We talk about KPI's we talk about. Getting that practice system is to the level where you are no longer the bottleneck in your dental practice. So I hope you guys enjoy this. It is about twenty minutes long. And it some of the great stuff. From a recent keynote presentation that I recently gave onstage to about five six hundred people. So I hope you guys enjoy. We'll talk to you very soon. Have a great day. What we like to do? This is called the elite practice blueprint. I'll read through with you. I know you can't read it what we like to do is take a ten thousand foot view of things in the very beginning. So right now from Dr Glenn essay, we know that there's a lot of things going on. We know that more than anything else. Cash flow is an issue. So we have to prioritize and figure out what we can do to right the ship as quickly as possible. Obviously, there's many many issues happening in this practice. There's issues of leadership. There's issues of cash flow. There's issues of. What he calls a chaotic practice and lack lack of systems ation. There's lots of issues there's lots of issues, and this is not an eight trait. Nobody is born on the first day that they're on this earth knowing how to do this stuff. And if you've never had any formal training in it. It's okay. Not to know. But you can't have a successful dental practice unless you somehow get educated. That's the bottom line. So this is the elite practice blueprint. This is our ten thousand foot view. And this also gives us an idea of where you are. So we do an audit. We ask you about each of these areas. There's only it's far as I can see five main areas to being able to turn a practice around. If you can get a good handle and master these five areas, you're on your way. Okay. The first one is foundation. You have to have a good solid mission vision and core values Dr Glenn on a scale of one to five how are you doing with defined mission vision core values operational systems -ation and operations manual.

"If your business is going to become a significant component of your primary aim yet to let your business know what that aim is. And how can you expect to do that? If you don't know what it is. Do you see while your primary aim is so important to the success of your business with no clear picture of how you wish your life to be how on earth, can you begin to live it? How would you know, what the first step is to take? How would you measure your progress? How'd you know, where you were? How'd you know, how far you had gone? How'd you know, how much further you had yet to go without your primary aim? You wouldn't indeed you couldn't it would be virtually impossible as with mature companies. I believe great people to be those who know how they got to where they are. And what they need to do to get where they're going. Great people have a vision of their lives that they practice emulating each and every day they go to work on their lives. Not just in their lives. Their lives are spent living out the vision. They have of the future in the present. They compare what they've done with what they've intended to do. And where there's a disparity between the two they don't wait very long to make up the difference. They go to work on their lives. Not just in their lives. I believe it's true that the difference between great people and everyone else is that great people create their lives actively while everyone else is created that while everyone else is created by their lives passively waiting to see where life takes them next. The difference between the two is the difference between living fully and just existing the difference between the two is living intentionally and and living by accident. Let let me repeat once more that great quote by Don Juan and Carlos Castaneda's a separate reality. The difference between a four warrior, and an extraordinary man is that a warrior sees everything as a challenge while an ordinary man sees everything as either a blessing or a curse. So before you start your business or before you return to tomorrow, ask.
