A Father's Story with KJ Carson, March of Dimes Ambassador
"K J Carson here. He's an ambassador with the march of dimes. And he has an amazing story that he's going to share with us and he has a lot of information about the march of dimes. I'm really excited to learn because I did not know how much they were helping out women and babies and families so it's really cool. The work that they are doing in Cagey got to experience it firsthand. So thank you so much for being here. Oh thank you so much for having me I guess where the beginning starts. Maybe Two days before our daughter was born and My wife was complaining of tiredness and so forth and we were really fortunate because The situation that we had for her healthcare included included a midwife and so that midwife had given us a card where if something had didn't seem right within a let's just call it a clockwise our someone from the midwife team get back to you so I said Okay. Well once we get back to our home which was about ninety minutes away Let me know how you feel. Maybe your medicine melted my wife's medicine just run out and so I thought okay maybe the worst. You'll need a refill To to kind of your because your body was depending on this medicine for your morning. Sickness so My wife wakes up the next day. And she's like I can't see virtually at all. Can you call the number? It's all like okay. Wow I've never known it to be this. So hit the pause button on that part of the story to tell from the father's perspective and I think every father should probably map out a route couple of them to get to the hospital and the time we're in the Washington DC AREA. If you knew how just absolutely ridiculous traffic is in the DC area. A hat and done this yet. Yeah so after calling the midwife They called back within about twenty five thirty minutes. It's a come into the hospital where okay absolutely. This is what I'm thinking. We'll get prescription for medication and So forth so I'll pause that part before we get to the hospital to say that my wife has been the epitome of healthy eating Not over indulging Had always been on. Medications has never been a smoker of any kind. I can't even get her to drink even the sweetest wine so she she clearly observes just virtually all the tenants of what a healthy mom should be But then when we got to the hospital It just seemed like we were there a little bit longer than expected and it turns out that my wife ended up with a syndrome called help It's an acronym acronym H E L P One way more people would know about is pre ECLAMPSIA but it's a severe case of P pre ECLAMPSIA and so my wife's blood pressure shot through the roof in the high to hundreds was the top number and we were just told. We're GONNA take the we have to take the baby today. And so my wife was only twenty nine weeks pregnant at the time and so our daughter was born two pounds. One ounces of two pounds one ounce And was in the nick you for one hundred and fourteen days She had a category four brain bleed and born with low scale cerebral palsy My wife did not have a chance to hold her her daughter for about four days because of the level of magnesium if I'm correct That was in her system and I was able to see my daughter because of the time that she was born. And because the visitation hours in the Nick. You which we're Kinda split in two times Were about to start so I was able to see her briefly for a little bit but our daughter Sarah was make you four hundred and fourteen days and it was just very tough to touch our daughter through a glass partition where book plexiglass. You know. Just giving her to reach our thumb. Grab our thumb or grab our finger But what was really fascinating about being in the nick? You were the other families in. How kind of Emeka is kind of this bubble of life where It doesn't matter what your walk is. What your beliefs are what your status is. Everybody's there for the same reason they're baby can't go home right away and so it kind of becomes a a small dependency in a way because you look forward to seeing the other families even though you're hoping just like everybody else that they can go home today with their child and so the march of dimes Was there for US When Sarah was in she's now eat When Sarah was moved from one hospital next to the Pentagon Over into an area of Fairfax Virginia The march of dimes had had a kind of like a thing for families where you can stop by. Wasn't anything mandatory. It was just the way to let someone know or let you know that. Someone's there if you had any questions that you didn't feel like you could ask a doctor or or or one of the nurse practitioners or one of the nurses that are in there Let's just say they dealt with the mental health side of it. If the Niki was the physical the march of dimes was there to help address. Some of the mental. And I know for my wife who could speak better about this but I know that it was something as simple as providing my wife a journal because as a husband and Kind of jokey way husbands are just notoriously known for like are you okay are you okay are you okay are you okay? And it's like I'm not okay anymore because you keep asking me but from a serious standpoint I just didn't know which avenue to walk down In terms of trying to get that communication with my wife of trying to understand why our child wasn't home And during that time when our daughter was in the hospital Literally inactive guide. A freak of nature happened where there was an earthquake that hit the east coast and it was like a six point. Oh and I happened to be over the hospital trying to let my wife know like hey look. Don't get out here. We don't know how bad things are. Even though nothing bad happened at the hospital but it was like okay. There's an earthquake. Are you okay at home? I'm wanting I'm going into the hospital as people are coming out and so So many of those different things that were going on that time while daughter was in the nick you The march of dimes able to provide even something as simple as a diary To my wife for her to be able to get her expressions in her thoughts out. You know again Probably one of the things that helped a lot and what I've learned from the situation is you know. Sometimes the foods that you put into your body can can exert exacerbate some of the stresses that are going on that. You're never really prepared for so. I really think that one of the blessings and everything that was going on was that my wife had already had kind of a a conscious thought of what she was putting into her body or not over stacking the foods into your body which you know I I would have no problem that they were. I knew there was one time she was like I'm craving mashed potatoes from KFC. And I WANNA Taco from Taco Bell and I was not going ask. Do you wanna eat this right now and it was just like okay. I'll be back in ten fifteen minutes. Is that enough time? It's just say also get one of those Green Mountain dews okay or the Light Blue Mountain dews. I'm like okay. You're really in his own but it wasn't an everyday thing and I think because that wasn't an everyday thing It allowed some of the mental to be able to permeate and be able to translate to the paper for her For me And I would recommend to any husband or father who's going through the same thing Try and find some things that you know may bring smiles to others During your free time I happened to start donating food to a food bank at that time. In fact that's exactly where I was around the corner From the hospital Earthquake hit and so But it it gave me a a sense of being appreciative. In spite of the things that are currently happening With me at that time. We're with our family at that time.
How to Hire a Full-Time Rockstar Virtual Assistant
"We're talking all about how you can hire a full time. Rockstar virtual assistant assistant and we're talking less than six hundred dollars a month and John Before we even get into the specifics on that you. My friends live the four hour workweek. So Oh please tell us how so. I'll tell you the backstory. Then I'll tell you what goes on so this is like twelve years ago. My wife was Pregnant With Our Third Child oiled and we got into the doctor's appointment and had some tests done and he came in to the room and said to my wife you have pre ECLAMPSIA and if you don't go on strict bedrest for the next three to five weeks you're gonNA have a seizure and die and you're gonNA lose this baby and obviously I'm sitting there in the appointment and that was it was a complete shock and I was just thinking like. Oh my gosh. My wife has to be on strict bedrest. I have two other kids. I I can't work mark like I. I gotTa Take Care of my kids full-time and so on the way home from the Dasa else think about how can I deal with this and and so when I got home I sent an email to to the guys in the Philippines and I were working for me and I told him like. Here's the situation. I can't work. I need you guys to do everything that you're currently doing for me and from there for the next three weeks. She was on strict bedrest for next three weeks. I worked one hour and and those two dudes in the Philippines just took over my business like everything that I was doing at the time so this is twelve years years ago so what I was doing at the time was different but you know like managing our Edwards and managing my blog and our comments and the software recreating and customer service is and marketing. All stuff that I was currently overseeing all of a sudden I wasn't overseeing anymore and and so my wife had the baby three weeks later perfect healthy amazing beautiful little girl and for the next two months. I worked about an hour week because I had like walked locked away and these guys were still running my business and my wife took a lot of recovering and so when I came back three months later after the doctor's appointment I kind of expected in my business to be mostly falling apart and it wasn't And and that was where I realized like dude this hour workweek thing is really possible and I'm I'm living it and this is like this is how I live this lifestyle. I get other people to do the work for me and I teach them how to do it. And just you know these two guys that working for me. They had been with me for eighteen months. I don't want people to think that all I'm GonNa go hire someone and I'm GonNa live the four hour workweek later today. It's not it's not how it works They had been working for me for like eighteen months. I had taught them and train them and work with them and so they knew a lot. I just didn't realize that they were so capable of of doing what they were doing. So and then since then I found that like an hour. A week isn't enough. I need like I need like fifteen hours a week to keep me busy because otherwise I'm I'm just bugging my wife all the time. So that's that's where I am. I'm like fifteen seventeen hours a week and I've been therefore like ten or twelve years now fire nation. Let me tell you once you taste the sweet sweet sweet nectar of time. Freedom you you WanNa let go. I mean I've just returned with cates from a ninety day world. Track where Kate Ni- working less than an hour a day so about five to seven hours. A week in our business was thriving without us with our three full-time virtual assistance. and that is the sweet sweet nectar that you will not WanNa give up once you have it so. Let's talk specifics. Because six hundred dollars a month as the title promises is pretty darn affordable. I mean it's pretty hard affordable for four. We're talking a forty hour of full time. Virtual assistant fire nation so John. Can we actually find somebody with skills at that price point. Yeah and it will depend on. Who you who like what kind of person you're you're not gonNA hire a great programmer for six hundred dollars a month but you can hear a great program for a thousand bucks a month or for twelve hundred bucks a month that's you that's US dollars? You can hire someone who speaks great English and you can teach them to do whatever it is you want. you hire someone who is really good at data entry. You can hire someone. Who's good at wordpress? You can hire someone who's good at writing writing content. You can hire someone who's really good at social social media social media marketing for six hundred dollars a month so when I started the people that I hired and this is a long time ago a lot of a different way of hiring but they were making making two hundred and fifty dollars a month and and that was fulltime work and so the salaries have gone up quite a bit but yeah it's six hundred bucks a month. You can hire talented alotted competent people and it's and really it's more than just like talented people. It's it's competent people because that's really the biggest thing that people we'll worry about outdoor is like oh I'm hiring someone who can't follow directions or if I if I miss a step then in giving him directions than than. They're not going to get anything done Dan and that's not the case here So yeah you can definitely do it. You can definitely find people with skills and I lay out like skills. You can find if you're interested. Did less Leo some skills so I have twenty four people. That work for me fulltime in the Philippines and the Philippines here is important and we can talk about that right but yeah we'll get to that so in those twenty four people. I have fulltime programmers. Obviously I have four or five programs I have an developer. Those people all make over a thousand dollars month I have full-time designers really good designers between eight hundred fifteen hundred dollars a month I have Good html CSS. The people that are like Six hundred thousand dollars a month I have an HR person I should stop talking about their salaries. Because then they'll know how much each other makes definitely listen entrepreneurs on fire so you should be careful about some of them. Do I have like back end. Admin people people that are looking at data in our website or or people that are like doing admin tasks or managing reports or or whatever I have content writers have social media people people that manage social media people that write for social media. Yeah people that create images for social media. I have a customer up. A bunch of customer support people. So let me ask you jump in here for a second because before fire nation is kind of maybe starting to think not that you are fire nation but in case some of you are thinking like man this is kind of feel like we're taking advantage of people in any any way shape or form. The reality is this six hundred. US dollars per month in the Philippines in these countries that we're talking about. This is an incredibly well. Well living adjusted wage period under story like when I hired my first virtual assistant and this was actually for four hundred and fifty dollars a month back in two thousand eleven and she still with me. She's Deli making more than that now. Because I give a raises every year but harder at four fifty a month forty hours per week I can. I'll never forget like at the three-month three-month recap that. I was doing to see if we wanted to keep her full-time she was so emotional because she said John I was making three hundred dollars a month as a full time nurse working twelve hours a day having to get on a bus for two and a half hours one way to the hospital and then two and a half hours one way back I I would get mugged on that bus. An average of three to four times per year the bus to get stopped and everybody on their we'll have to give their money was going through a dangerous part of the Philippines. She's like now. I'm making more money. I'm working from home spending more time with my friends. My family not commuting five hours a day. It was an amazing opportunity. And guess what she's He's been with my business now for eight years and she's definitely making a lot more than that now because he's earned it over the years more skills and all that stuff but I just wanted to kind of jump open and kind of share that kind of perspective and if you've had anything similar definitely feel free to share as well so not only have I had almost the exact same experience over ran over and over again but I know I know hundreds of people who have had that exact same experience like I hired this person in and after a couple of weeks or months we do this review and and and they are so thankful for the job and because of all the things you said like. Oh they're making more money. I mean the minimum wage in the Philippines is like one hundred seventy dollars a month. Yeah and there's no commute you know. As long as they have decent WIFI Internet in their house. And if they don't then they're going to be able to afford it now with higher wage anyways I mean I'm not kidding I am not kidding when I say my virtual assistant like three years ago sent me a picture of the house. She bought for her family because of the job. Like it's unbelievable what you're doing. I think these

"I got her. We got her there just in time before before she experienced a stroke and you know something Severe Coulda gone wrong whatever and just the if we waited just a few minutes more. I mean could've just gone so much worse and I feel like I would have probably waited a little bit more before we would went so I I feel guilty for that but at the same time now I can tell people a pre clamps is something a lot of people actually experience. It's it's is not an uncommon experience so it's important to have a blood pressure machine inside of your house. I mean this one costs like twenty five Bucks Amazon and to monitor that blood pressure because the only way to cure pre ECLAMPSIA is to have the baby. That's IT and the second.

We start to get protein. You know they say oh. You know we're starting to maybe think about pre ECLAMPSIA and in some women get headaches six. It's it can be scary because it can be life threatening a need. I don't know if you've seen what is that show <hes> downtown Abbey but she didn't she died of put it was post-partum pre ECLAMPSIA.

"eclampsia" Discussed on Post Reports
"And then they did recommend that women take it. And they are glad that they did. But she said this was one of the proudest moments of her career because prior to that the knee-jerk reaction would have just been to exclude the women and urge us not to make recommendations because of the lack of data. What have been some of the barriers and have things started to change? Yes. So some of the barriers are kind of written into policy and those do seem to be. Changing last year. Federal task force suggested that women who participate in research trials shouldn't need the permission of their partner in order to participate in a trial that could benefit their fetus, and they took women out of this vulnerable category. Pregnant women were named along with people with mental disabilities or children and prisoners as vulnerable population who we're going to be subject to like undo coercion. And they took them out of the list. So I mean, it's kind of almost just symbolic, but it had been a long time coming for a lot of people who are looking for changes. The reluctance to research pregnant women has made it hard to test new treatments for very serious in fairly common pregnancy complications. I did talk to some scientists who are trying to develop a therapy for pre eclampsia, which is this pretty dire. Maternal condition, but basically Sente sort of causes the mother to have very high blood pressure and can cause all kinds of problems and the only real treatment at the moment is for the mother to deliver the baby and the placenta which could be weeks and weeks early. So it's terrible for everyone. And so they're trying to develop a drug that would be quite novel to allow women to continue their pregnancies longer and protect their health better. And they have some exciting research boons, and so they're kind of like moving forward, but they did, you know, come into this not from the pregnancy field and were startled. I think about how much resistance they've felt from investors who just didn't want to be involved in research on women and their fetuses. What were the investors saying? Well, it's always hard to know because you know, companies get passed on for all kinds of reasons, but they had a kind of elite Ross. Stor scientists some really cool science and what they thought was a compelling pitch. And they said the doctors in the scientists we got really excited and supportive and thought this was a great way to go. And then the legal people would end the discussion because of the prospect of having to do a clinical trial with this full normal population, and blah, blah, blah. So they are still pursuing that research, but they're trying to find other kinds of partners and looking at them or nonprofit pathway for developing that therapy. There are also many populations of women that have just never really been studied in terms of pregnancy. Well, I spoke to one woman who is pregnant now and has a disability. She has spina bifida. So she's right now in the middle of her second pregnancy, and she actually had a pretty positive experience with her first one, but it still meant that every single thing that came up was kind of like a mystery had to be solved. She even told me that you have to wait. And every time you go to the doctor, which is very often when you're pregnant, and she said, the nurses would just eyeball her. 'cause they didn't really have a good way to put her on a scale. So there are just populations that haven't really been looked at just to even get a sense. How many people are going through this like what kinds of questions? Do they have are the been being told the right thing? She said she had heard like anecdotes from friends where they had been just told not to get pregnant because their doctors just didn't really know what to do these on just like total vacuum of information. Not because there was any real health reason for them to not have a child. So because they were disabled a better option would just be to not have children because they didn't know what they were going to be facing in terms of getting medicine and procedures in. It sounds like the woman that you talk to just so difficult just to navigate a regular doctor's appointment..
"eclampsia" Discussed on 77WABC Radio
"Well, think of it you're almost doubling your blood volume to be able to maintain the pregnancy and to give lots of good blood and oxygen vitamins, minerals and hormones, etc. To the developing fetus now, remember that magnesium potassium, if they are low can allow tightening of the smooth muscle around blood vessels. So that can cause high blood pressure. So looking at the individuals who took antioxidant supplementation. They had a four significantly decreased risk of client, pre eclampsia, hypertension. I imagine putting the antioxidants, obviously, a binder free radicals using the minerals, vitamins and minerals. That's why you have such benefit for lines are open if you like to call in do so now one eight hundred eight four eight WABC, let's go to Gordon in Brooklyn. How are you? I'm fine. Tractor. Good. I have a kind of question that's a little bit different. From most faking, okay? In brooklyn. I. Apartment. Fourth-floor apartment house. Record above me on the roofs several cell phone tower. I was wondering. Is about twenty five. Between the cell phone towers and. In my apartment. Been from kind of I Fakty danger by having. Power to be happy a negative effect on my health. So how how how could I possibly decide one way or the frightening affect it really is difficult to say without having some sort of mechanism to test the electromagnetic field this being said in just looking at some of the literature over the years, the cell phone towers, expose you to more electromagnetic effect, then, you know, your parents and your grandparents, especially if you live near those big on the ground, electrical plants. So it's hard to say exactly what you're getting. Because I think you block some of that in the distance and block some of it from the walls in your facility. I imagine there's gotta be a company out there that can come and test to see what sort of electromagnetic field issues, you're having in your house. You know, they have tried to relate cell phone towers with different disorders with cancers with brain tumors. I don't think that that information is conclusive. So, and I don't think they've ever done a study because this is not sort of a hot topic to study in the traditional realm. Let's see if people that live near cell towers have more problems than people that don't. You know? Do you think that you? Phones are. Ordinary shock phones. A negative effect. Grover is possible eaten or no one can say that one device will never affect anybody in the world. It just doesn't work that way. Are there? Some people who are more susceptible to mutations in their cells. Yes. And when those people eat poorly or smoke or drink they at higher risk for cancer. Yes. Are some people that are otherwise healthy have heavy metal exposure, it's not really good for them. And that on top of, you know, the cell phone effect that could be used as well. But it's very hard to quantify to to look at research. That's really specific inaccurate on these things I think for people that use cell phones, you really should get the ear buds get something to pop in your ear. So the cell phone is not up against your face because his cell phone, obviously does omit some effect and using the earplugs. It's a disconnect. You know, your cell phone could be on your desktop or on your kitchen counter and you're walking around and talking and he wearing a little device in your ear. I think that's dramatically safer. Yeah. But you know, everybody she ever run. Help from press right against their. It's kind of funny because when I drive to work every morning, I see a lovely young girl walking, and she goes on a very low walk there. Sometimes I've seen her very far away from my house, and she's got this funny. Little bop in her walking and I smiled retired. I see wave to her. But she always has her cell phone to her ear while she's walking, you know. So she's walking for an hour or more. You know, she has a cell phone to her ear for that amount of time. I think it would be much safer to just have the earbud or the an earplug to be able to talk him, but the cellphone in your jacket or something, you know. Seems to make more sense to me keep things away from the immediacy of your body. All righty. Thank you so much for your call. Appreciate it. Always some good questions from Gordon, a friend. Gordon? Let's go to Richard in queens. How are you? Good morning. Thank you. Dr. Sure. Sure. Questions. First question is I do a colon cleanse the first ten days of every season? Ten days too, many and the other question I have for you is how do you feel about aloe? Vera, acid reflux or. Something else naturally. Yeah. I mean, I can tell you clearly when I see people coming in that have acid reflux, and I tell them to stop eating, grains, no bread or rice, no pasta, no oatmeal. They will typically tell me over the course of a few days or a week or two weeks that they're still mixed symptoms have decreased dramatically. We also test people for food allergy. You could have a delayed reaction to a food that takes days or a week to occur. And if we test you via skin test and take that food out your stomach issue made clear up as well. Seventy percent of your immune recognition is in your gut. So whatever you put into your God. He's either going to be good for you or could be bad for you. I'm not even talking about bacterial infection. But so foods player significant role to gird. During the colon cleanse, I think isn't a bad idea. The the question is is where is your body before you do declines, what are your vitamins minerals hormones? What's your digestive ability? And when you do the claims, are you losing out on vitamins and minerals because some people will do a cleanse where they're not really eating food and taking supplements doing green powders are protein, shakes or. You know, cabbage soup, etc. So everybody has a different. Understanding of what a cleanser a quote detox is. So I'd rather be ultra specific in test a person before they did it to see where they are. They're deficient in nutrients. Correct. That and even when you're doing your cleanse, you watch your vitamins onboard because the key issue is that you always wanna have great levels vitamins. That of a person who's younger than your age because as you get older your vitamin levels are supposed to expected to decline, but you wanna have great levels of vitamins. No matter what you do. And if you using a claims to help to improve bowel function or to push things through more quickly that might be nice, and it would make you feel good. But you don't wanna be pushing her nutrients and not absorbing. Right. Fine it with your body. I. Tempta- theory of too long to your plan. It's hard to say, I know people that do a variety of things some do at five days sub to attend days. I can't tell you if it's too long or if it's if it's too short. It really depends upon what your body saying if you do it in your vitamin levels dropped for ten days. That's bad. So I don't know about it. I mean, in theory, if you wanted to make a little study of it, we can test vitamins and minerals and beforehand, and then while you're doing a test them and see what happens because if they drop that sped? Definitely do plan on coming in the other question. What's the aloe? Vera beneficial for some people. Yeah. Some people like it helped to calm down, the gut. I think it's got some healing properties. Are there are people that could be allergic to it? Yes. We've seen some of that. But I think you want to get rid of the cause. And if you take out the grains, overwhelmingly people will save their stomach improves anywhere from fifty to one hundred percent. So I think that's one of the things that is more common. People are learning. To the gluten in the grain. So and I say this all day long too, many thousands of people over thirty years. This is what people say when we tell them to avoid the graves. And of course, other allergies that they have food allergies. Take those foods out your body gets better and better. So that's from many years worth of, you know, one on one patient doctor experience in taking their history and examining and testing and listening to what they tell me when we do a follow up after we've made the recommendation, so it's all juicy nitty gritty good stuff. Thank you very much. Thank you for the call the websites, WWW dot D, R C A L dot net. And we'd love could take a look at it. It's gonna be all revamped a new over the course of the next couple of weeks. Let's go next to Tom and flushing. How are you? How can I help you? Seventy-five undermine the woke up one morning and his vision. And while I was gone, and he went to the doctor. It's optic nerve. And there's not a whole lot. They can do with it. And it can lead supplying this. They think they can like arrested. So that it doesn't get any worse at least for a time. Nutrition or so, yeah, let's let's think about what happens to the back of your eye. You have a multilayered retina in the back of your eye. There's an area called the macula which is a pinpoint spot that the light bouncing off of images going into your. I is then focused by the lens of your eye to the macula for your to be able to see things. The blood vessels in the back of the I R either week or breaking down or getting clogged. Then that's going to change that the optic nerve. Of course, needs blood flow. So you wanna have lots of great blood flow the optic nerve. Now, if you look at the progression of vision loss presby, oh Pia the size and change of the eye that could affect vision, you wanna look at nutrients because nutrients are good for your eyes. But one of the more significant things when people actually see a loss of vision is usually a circulatory effect in the perfect world. And we've done this with patients with macular degeneration with diabetic retinopathy, we've done stem cell therapy. So that we take your cells from your body doing intravenous and a nasal approach to put billions of cells in that get to the areas of damage in degeneration because they listened to distress signals. And you're putting new cells in place of the old now, those new cells become I cells, and we saw patients that are diabetic with retinopathy where we've done the intravenous and the vision has changed and improved so much. So that the doctor had to change the prescription in the right I on their glasses. We have a lovely lady who has macular degeneration, and we did the stem cell therapy on her and her video is the second video from the top on the first or the left column of the three videos, and you could hear her story as to the fact that her color visions completely back to normal and the central vision loss that was occurring. Now, she can see and write her name on a line. She was unable to do that before. So that's with one stem cell therapy. And I think the results were there after two or three weeks. So yes, we want to correct your vitamins your minerals your hormones who want to do the right exercise. But we want your body heal itself. That's why stem cell therapies the greatest invention in health or medicine. Ever. He goes to the white friends over time. And he's in good shape that way. But yeah.

Young women are at risk for heart disease
"So I think this study really brings to attention number one that the young women are at high. You know, it tells us now that they're at high risk for heart disease, and they're no longer a low risk population. It also tells us shows us that there's a lot of the usual risk factors, and they found that in the study that patients that young women have a higher degree of diabetes have a higher. Do we have hypertension, and you know, African Americans are higher risk. And also that when they come into the hospital, they come in sicker. They're the ones that also have higher degree of block who should more evidence of heart failure symptoms. So women for sure even though you're young are are at increased risk. There's also a lot of non traditional risk factors that are associated with your risk of heart disease. Not the usual, diabetes, hypertension, and exercise level. But rather your complications during your pregnancy? And the time of when you hit menopause patients that have had history of breast cancers, and I've had radiation. And chemotherapy, there's somebody was at higher risk patients who have had you know, a pre eclampsia during pregnancy or at higher risk. So there's there are some non traditional factors that are associated now with your risk of heart disease. So, you know, young women is an area that we need to put a lot of money into in terms of research ongoing research to be able to understand what these non traditional and traditional risk factors are so we're very aggressive with primary care prevention in this particular population. So for women out there being tuned to your body pay attention to your symptoms don't brush them side. And till it's too late. I would you know, if you are, you know, somebody who has these risk factors whether the traditional and nontraditional, but see your doctor and make sure that you're appropriately restrained because heart attack ten is
Heart Attack Symptoms in Women
"And and I gotta tell you women are in the workforce, they they've got a lot on their plate. They don't care what anyone says, you know, you've got multiple jobs every single woman between the job they go to work for nine to five. Plus, they put their mom hat on or their spouse had on and they're taking care of everything. And the one thing Dr Crawford that always sits in my brain is how men and women are council differently about their risk of heart disease and the symptoms there thereof. So can you kind of go through that difference? Well, I think main thing is many years ago back in the Reader's Digest era. You know, there was an article written that if a man has pain in the center of his chest up to his left shoulder to his jar or down with left arm that you know, the wife she called nine one one immediately. And that message got out and has been known for decades, literally on the other hand because women do have different symptoms. Probably only a quarter of women actually hit straightforward chest pain. Most of them have more vague symptoms like an aching somewhere in the front or the back of the top half of their body, shortness of breath, tiredness chest pressure, and even sometimes they're upper stomach people think that maybe they're having a viral guest strata or having gallbladder problems. And they just don't recognize because it's not straightforward chest pain, but one in three women die of heart problems, cardiovascular disease when you talk about it, both heart attack. Stroke is absolutely by far. The number one killer of women. I think that the go red for women program has been around for about fifteen years now and people on TV might see the newscasters wearing red dresses or red tie and wearing the red dress ten for sure the breast cancer. I think association did offending tested job really getting women to do self breast exams at home. And I think it made a big impact. I think the biggest thing because this is sort of it really turns out being a word of mouth woman to woman kind of a thing when I get the opportunity to talk just reminding the next generation of women that heart disease should be on your gender that one in three women are gonna die of a heart attack or stroke, and that the symptoms are a little bit different. Would we had our conference together last year? You had a really interesting statistic about the time from a man having symptoms to getting help. I as a woman having symptoms to getting help. So I like to seriously and jokingly say that if a man is having symptoms at home. It takes about one minute literally for someone to pick up the phone and call nine one one the average length of time it takes for a woman to get into the ER on average is twelve hours. So when we talk about, you know, door to balloon times, if someone really is having a heart attack and need to catheterization angioplasty time is muscle and the standard of care. Now is that you have to be in the test left, basically in sixty to ninety minutes from the time, you're paying starts. And so this is where women really get into trouble because they have much bigger heart attacks, they have more extensive, my heart attacks, and they end up with weaker, heart muscles, more damage and then on top of it. There's just this dilemma still where sometimes the woman has to be their own advocate. Even if they're pretty sure they have heart problem. And they call for help. Then you have the problem with some of the doctors still have the wrong bias that the number one killer of women, isn't heart disease. And so you really have to problems that patient, and then everybody else in the world who still doesn't seem to get this message either, you know, with women you'll see here that it might feel like indigestion or nausea or Adele, backache or just being tired. So I'm sitting here, and I have risk factors for heart disease, family and personal. But I I'm exhausted. So I'm like, okay, am I having a heart attack or am? I just having a busy day. I mean, I'm nauseous was it the nachos. Or do I have a heart attack? So so these subtle symptoms. How do I know when to go to the ER versus it's really nothing. Well, I think one of the things I would say is I tell most women can you do this year. What you could do last year. And is this a similar recurring problem that you've had for months or years that nothing bad has happened? Help you sort of say, well, maybe this isn't that? But on the other hand, if you're not sure to in a baby aspirin, and then taking to acids. You know, kinda helps you sort through is it my stomach if I suddenly have you know, a little burp. And then I feel better that might lead you away from it on the other hand, if you know, let's just say last summer, you could move the grass. Trim. The weeds pulled the, you know collect the flowers all that kind of thing. And now you get halfway through the front yard with your lawn mower in your face is red. And you have a heavy chest and you're exhausted. And you just don't feel right. And you have kind of a Bernese dull ache that you'd never had before that would be the time for sure to go to the hospital new different or worse than it had been if you've had similar discomforts before. And of course, if you're having similar discomforts that would be a time, you know, if you really do think, they're stable certainly go to your doctor and advocate for yourself and go ahead and call her chest pressure or chest discomfort because part of us being allowed to test on people with insurance is getting tighter. And tighter is if you have symptoms, so we can say atypical symptoms of chest pressure gas tightness in the chest. But it's still a symptom in the near them. We can get a stress test, which are pretty reliable in sorting through. What's serious cardiac problems? And what isn't Dr Crawford. We know that. We shouldn't smoke we should exercise, and we should eat well to help prevent heart disease. But I understand there's some new data that talks about some things that can happen in pregnancy. That might also increase our risk for heart disease. Well, first of all, this standard risk factors that we've heard for a long time debut, obesity, sedentary not eating the right things high cholesterol, smoking, all those things you briefly touched on, but in two thousand eighteen the guidelines came up with a few there. That I think especially for your younger viewer really need to hear about the I is is a woman during her pregnancy had pre eclampsia this is a risk factor for heart problems when you get older like just the fact that you had proclaims the and hypertension because a lot of people at had that will end up getting hypertension. It's a risk factor. The second thing that I think women struggle with always is trying to get back to pre baby weight, and it actually made the guidelines now that if you stay more than twenty pounds, overweight, and if by one year, you are not to your, you know, pre baby weight and more importantly to the proper BMI for your height. In other words, you know, how much do you weigh for how Paul you are which on average is five pounds
Women who give birth through IVF are have more complications
"They say women who give birth through in vitro fertilization are forty percent more likely to experience some severe sequentially like bleeding sepsis or have to spend time in intensive care. This is a very very startling study. Where Canadian researchers looked at sixty thousand women, and they think it's the hormones given to women who need the in vitro fertilization are to blame. The study looked at forty four pregnancy complications from pre eclampsia the sepsis and these are women having babies through f. They see after fertility treatment they have higher. Odds of suffering bleeding sepsis which is infection. Or ended up in intensive care than those who actually conceive naturally now mind, you many people who get IV ever also older. So it could be that as well. But the study looked at sixty thousand women, and they found that those will go through IVF are forty percent more likely to suffer these serious complications up to an after birth. Now. They took into account. They said women over forty or those who are twins and multiple station. See if you have twins or multiple station. You may be having like a section so if you have a C section. Yeah. That does unfortunately increase your risk of bacteria and post op issues, but they said they took that into account already. So I've allows women who can't conceive to conceive. I'm a huge fan of IVF. I think it's fantastic. But we can't underestimate that as we tinker with nature that there could be complications. And somebody getting IVF is considered to me a high risk pregnancy and needs to be watched very closely afterwards. Now, most of them do but what's IVF you can hormones immediately to stimulate the ovaries. So they produce more than the usual. One eight a month than doctors need more aches to fertilize what the sperm, and so they can select the right embryo, put it inside a woman helped Baker print, and so you need high doses a hormone. So the high Justice hormones change the blood vessels this could unfortunately when you're on. Hi hormones put you at risk for clots. So now, you're not very active. You have a baby you're pregnant maybe pregnant with multiple babies can't really move a lot got a lot of weight gain. Then you give birth if you gave birth with a C section. You can't move lodge? These women are higher risk for some pretty serious issues. Not all of them though. So you know, and you tell us women if we want a baby, we'll take the rest. Well, like, look I wanna beat the I don't care. You know? So it doesn't really scare that many women. They still want to baby. And most of the time I is very safe.

For the call I'm just trying to figure out why anybody would think they needed to call. An, ambulance or assistance or anything, for this late I I don't know. If they I don't know if they needed to I, think if if you're, ice, and they're on hang hang, on a second Michael if you're ice and that. You know they're on their way. To the hospital they weren't lying about that Abbas they, had an appointment at the, hospital for the C-section and you're taking the husband you're taking the husband, away was who's doing the driving to the hospital and they explained, to you that this this woman has a. Condition then I think you at least offer it. I just think that's the humane thing to do I don't. Necessarily know, if you need an ambulance or what I mean there's a variety of different things they could. Have done to potentially help her in. This. Situation just again? It. Being humane about it Don't you think So if someone gets pulled over for DUI in the husband who's, driving gets arrested the police should make sure that they provide transportation for the white sits in the passenger seat. To get home if the wife, is if the if the wife is pregnant and needs to get to the hospital for. A, c. section yes I think that would be the nice. Thing, to do. Yes she was she was. Not in labor it was. A scheduled C-section my wife had one and she's. Got pre eclampsia it's it's a pregnancy complication marked by. High blood pressure so watch these got pregnancy condition? Just? So what what why is it so bad to offer her? A little help why is? That so bad What I'm saying is she's not going to. Leave, her car. The seven eleven so you. Would say all right all. Right you okay to go to drive to the. Hospital and that's it that's all I'm saying is offering. It say are you ok and if not offer a? Little help I don't understand what's so complicated about this so? What's so wrong about that I'm sure they did, that how do. You know they how, do you. Know they. Did that didn't know they didn't well so far they've put out. Minimal information and the minimal information they put, outs been step? By step and and they did not. Mention that in anything don't you think they. Would mention that why wouldn't they No they would talk about? The arrest because that's what. Law enforcement and then there's? An accusation made they just left her there to fend for himself, you don't think they would respond to that why wouldn't you. Respond to that that makes no sense he's is is not under attack in this country. Right now why would you want that? Floating out there No doubt I'm sure. They'll come out but it was a scandal The hospital maybe maybe she with this pre eclampsia. Maybe she was having an episode. After her, husband got arrested in maybe she needed a little help, I. Mean I just don't think and thank you for the call Michael I appreciate I just don't think it's that bad, to at least offer some kind of assistance, to a pregnant woman even if it was a plan c section we. Know things. Can go wrong in high, stress situations can cause complications I really didn't think there'd be a like an issue with offering, essentially offering help and maybe they did so, and if they did that my question is why didn't they say that I mean who's running the, show with ice.

And my most recent book which is radiant health ageless beauty, a thirty day program. For extrordinary health beauty in longevity. I guess today is Dr. Kisha gave her. She's actually a double board certified physician in OB GYN and also in maternal fetal medicine, and she's actually specializes in issues with maternal death and and pregnancies. And so today, what we're gonna be talking about is some of the ways that women can actually significantly lower their risk of having a furious complications with pregnancy or even death, and and so Dr kisha getting. I'm sorry, actually just call Dr Ganz doctor, but thank you so much for gagne Amish. Oh, thank you so much for having me. Thanks so much. So let's just I first of all start out with like, how did you decide you are going to be a doctor, and how did you decide you to specialize this. Area? Well, that's kind of interesting. My mom told me that when I was around four years, I was running around telling people that I was going to be surgeon. So you know, you listen to what the four year old says, you know, particularly sent. I was also saying I wanted to have an elephant as a pet, so you gotta listen. Yeah, yet. But then you know, I really had a love of science and math, and it just kinda let me to the path. Initially, I wanted to be a pediatrician, but then when I did my third year rotation, they put me on the pediatric service on college service. It was kind of sad dealing with all of those children with cancer and going for chemo and with and so on. So that that kind of termi off a little bit. And then my next rotation was OB and I was fortunate enough to work under the auspices of a great maternal fetal medicine specialist dot to under g so that the sender, gee, if you're out there, you really were. You know, we're great mentor to me, and that's just I fell in love with it. And that just, you know what I wanted to do it affords a little bit of everything. Certainly, you know, you have to have medicine background. You're dealing with young women, you know, you're bringing life into the world. So not every day is is different. I mean, every day there's there's something there's something different, so it never gets boring and you constantly being challenged. So that's kind of where I am. I, I love what I do. So I, you know, statistically they say that maternal death is on the rise, which was kind of surprising to me because I mean, we've kinda think about that being long ago that people would die childbirth. And now it seems like it's extraordinarily rare, but there is a rather significant number of women that's still in childbirth. That's correct. And you know, I think that there are number of factors that kind of play into it. Certainly, when we're talking about maternal death, one of the things that I think really needs to be highlighted is there's a high rate of morbidity and mortality specifically among black women. A lot of things that go into a high maternal death rate. First of all, we're having babies
