Our bodies or make made up of polarity and magnetism are so it keeps us on Earth here so but since the body had such magnetism when we take magnets And put them on the body in certain patterns, the pears in patterns to wear those infections lie and we kind of isolated and track that reservoir. The inspection starts to break down and the immune system which keeps us healthy, wake that because it might have been dormant for a bit trying so hard to fight off infection, wakes up and starts to break the infection down so someone will come in. We'll put Magnets on the body could be a couple pairs could be 20 pair and for a certain amount of time they stay on 10 15 20 minutes and they're taken off. Come back in a couple weeks. We we muscle That's a whole other thing. We could talk about that Howie, you kinesiology to find out what infections are in the body because the body's brilliant It knows every experience every history, every toxicity. You've ever had in your body and your proper muscle testing. We can find out what infections are there What toxicities and layer by layer stripped them off for the body's immune system peaks up. And get and bring the body back to health and having less symptoms of Lyme disease. Epstein Barr virus trap The list goes on heavy metal toxicity fungus parasite. Viruses that base that the real quick just on how it works, and there's people feel better. They come in not feeling well and they leave feeling better after a chunk of time, depending on how long they've had these infections. And so in some instances, someone may be coming to you because they found out they have lions disease. But if some of these other and examples of infections that you just that you just mentioned that may making it so that the body Can't fight off. Let's say the lime or the cops'll infections there. Some of these other infections described. Is that right? That's correct in a lot of time, but we're doing the best job we can with Western medicine. But our casting is not super accurate for tick borne illness or vector borne illness, Lyme disease as well as other infections, so when we're able to muscle has been fined them and look at this whole big groups that never Jeff Lyme disease are never just one virus. It's It's a build up of all of it that we are able to positively affect the body by taking off those layers. Yes, We talked about iron Vada being, Ah, you know, 5000 years year old, ancient form of medicine has a bio magnetic para therapy or something along those lines. That's something that's used for a long time. So big, really cool question so that the Egyptians back many many many years ago used to take a right rocks, which are magnetic and put them on their forehead to treat headaches. So this has been around forever. But Dr Goy is back in the 19 eighties. He is a physicist scientist and from Mexico created this protocol. He originally created it for infections like HIV AIDS, cancer, leukemia. And then don't Randall, who is the Ah, the creator of the line Magnetic protocol, trained with Dr Glaze and created this beautiful On the tool that we have now, which we started off with one of her first classes with maybe 100 infections, and now we have multiple, multiple multiple over Maybe 6 700 infections, so it hasn't been around for as long as these ancient science But the efficacy that the validity there's just a lot that we see with improvement that's happening with patients and the bio magnetic pair therapy.

"I'm joined today by singer, songwriter and patient advocate, Gracie van brunt formerly based in Los Angeles. Gracie moved back to the Boston area before the Kovic pandemic. She's the recipient of the two thousand thirteen rare champions of hope patient advocacy. Award. From the nonprofit advocacy group global jeans at age two, she was diagnosed with a rare disease that I'm going to let her pronounce, and even before the pandemic, she was an expert at social distancing. She is here to share her story and her art welcome Gracie Hey. Thank you so much for having me what an amazing introduction. Thank you so much for being here. We're I'm really excited. This is gonNA. Be Fun. Yes, I'm so. Yeah you too. All right. So can you tell me about your disease and how is it pronounced? Yes. So it's called Schwartzman. Diamond. Syndrome. Like a Walkman, but just with an ass and then I'm in just like a like a diamond gem and then syndrome and it is a very rare disease that only affects I think around like five thousand people in the whole world how and I was diagnosed when I was two and now I'm twenty five. So it's a genetic chronic disease that is currently incurable. We are working on a cure for it, which hopefully can be developed soon, it is also life threatening. So the main aspect of the disease is your bone marrow and a lot. Lot of patients with SDS as we like to abbreviate, it have bone marrow issues where their bone marrow fails and We don't have enough blood counts really like we don't have enough platelets, not enough white cells and not enough red cells, which basically makes up your immune system So we get sick a lot quicker than a normal person would and we also a lot more prone to getting leukemia, which is a blood related cancer, and so the point of getting a bone marrow transplant would be to eliminate that risk. Let's start to talk about this and dig in Can you tell me about your song run ron run because I'm kind of obsessed. It's pretty great. Thank you. Run run run is a song that I wrote about my disease and having to live with it and confronted every day and The first line is my disease does not define me, but recently it's all I. can see and that is because three years ago in twenty seventeen, I got like a huge Epstein Barr virus. I just got really sick from having the Epstein Barr virus, which kind of like was the catalyst to me getting my heart transplant to use later, and so it's kind of just about having to actually confront my disease head on. which is something I haven't had to do for a long time because you know growing up after all of my hospital stints. I got gradually better and I was able to kind of dislike, put my disease into a little box and leave it there and On. A kind of live my life as a normal person. A. and. So when I got this Epstein, Barr in two, thousand, seventeen, it was a huge huge hit to my system. I was extremely sick for a few months and that ultimately led to me having to get a transplant but. Up, until then, I. You know I could be a normal teenager like do normal activities and. not really have to put a lot of emphasis on my body or my health. But because of this catalyst I'll say Really really. Forced me to take my disease out of that little box. I had it in and really really face it. So the chorus goes. To run run run just like I've always done and I leave it alone. But I, have nowhere else to go which is me really just like having to confront the fact that you know I'm still sick I will never be a normal bio typical person and I have to do this transplant for like to better my own quality of life and Just. Focus on. My health more than anything. So that's pretty much what it's about, and then like a little fun fact is. I had already written it before I got the news about my bone marrow transplant. So I had my doctor's appointment on December twenty, fourth two, thousand eighteen, which is like Yay, Christmas, time such great news. But so I had my doctor's appointment, and I already had like a little demo of this song done because Louis is my boyfriend and he's a wonderful producer and we had already been working on Um songs for my upcoming EP and then we'd already done this one. So the first thing I did when I came home was I actually just listened to this song to make me feel better. Because, it's just like it was just the best remedy for me because it is exactly how I felt in this. Little compact. Song.

"And I'm just going to be honest and tell you once I realized my hamster was healed. And I went back into that follow up MRI, once I was able to go back to doing Pyo, I stopped doing all those things. Now only did I stop doing all those things right. Which is going to perhaps compromise my immune system, but heap on top of that, all of the stress that I was under end. It's no wonder that I have this reoccurrence in addition to that I am back to supplementing things that I know improve my immune system like zinc site trait, lemon balm. I'm also taking liquid I'm taking a hundred actually three hundred milligrams daily sibling wool, meaning under the tongue because that is an antiviral Saint John Ward's is also a natural anti viral. And I'm taking six hundred milligrams a day of Saint John's wart echinacea, which is an. Anti inflammatory, and an anti-viral. I think I'm taking think I'm taking three hundred milligrams of that three times a day to Mark, I'm taking tumor sub lingual again, under the tongue just so I better absorption, and remember that any supplementation that you choose. You always want to look at who manufacturers it so that, you know, that what you're taking has been either third party certified to contain the ingredients that it says it contains and that you, you can trust the packaging, right? Because this stuff is not regulated by the FDA, so you really are at the mercy of the manufacturer. So it's, it's really important that, you know, you, you just know what to look for, in terms of packaging, and I think third party certification is one of the best ways to know that what you're taking is legitimate. One of those is US P verified. That means these are quality supplements that have been evaluated for their efficacy. It's a volunteer. Gary program, open to any manufacturer of dietary supplements, and they can submit their product, then goes to rigorous testing and auditing, and the USPA evaluates, whether in fact, the products meet the science-based quality standards for quality purity potency performance, and consistency. So we've talked about food. We've talked about rest. We've talked about things that are restorative and help to reduce dress. We've talked about supplementation, but one really important form of supplementation that haven't seen a lot of experts on E V talk about. And I'm not sure why is Gouda theon, but in my own understanding of how my body works, and what really strengthens my immune system and what we know about the means it just seems common sense to me that glued Athenian needs to be an important part of my healing protocol. Glued Afyon is considered the mother of all antioxidants in your body. Uses it naturally. What it does. Is it protects? The cells protects the body from additional damage. It helps to rid you of oxidative stress. It's also a master detoxifier. So it really does help the immune system and for that reason, many people know that, you know, glued thion supplementation protocol. It's going to boost your energy. It's gonna improve cellular function, which, of course, improves the way you look and feel that it is said to be the antioxidant of youth. So if you wanna look more youthful, many people are doing glue to Thiam for beauty reasons. I don't know that I felt that when I was doing it, but I, I know that it did help my energy, and also improved my immune system. The reason why I do it via a drip, meaning like through an IV. It's one hundred percent bioavailability, meaning it goes directly into your bloodstream, while bypassing the GI tract. So you get instant benefits. And that's about. It for the number of things that I'm doing to put this current Epstein Barr virus activation into remission. The problem is that this is not the first activation of Epstein Barr virus that I've had. And so it might be considered what they call a chronic active Epstein Barr virus. And I might note that I didn't have all of the symptoms of Epstein Barr virus? Like I wasn't having the flu like symptoms. At least not that I was aware of so without the testing..

"There's no one who profits from that. So then they're penalized for that. They're in fact penalized for not prescribing more medications. So now as we've already discussed it's pretty much impossible to avoid being infected with e b like if. Around other people if you share utensils if you've ever taken a drink from someone else's Cup. If you've been exposed to any of the previous related or listed conditions, like I said, chickenpox, roseola, shingles mono, etc. Emmys almost impossible to avoid being infected by it. So the remaining questions are, how do you know if in fact, you are experiencing reactivation of the virus? The next question might be, how do I try to heal from that naturally, and what medications could I consider? And then lastly, what can expect in how long should I anticipate the healing process to take well, one of the only ways to know if in fact, you are suffering from a reactivation of the virus is to be tested for it. That's why in my previous episode, and I will link to that previous episode about testing for hormones and doing your bloodwork. If you're experiencing fatigue, etc. That's why you want to ask your physician. To run a complete e b v test a profile to really understand. Have you had in the past? Are you experiencing an outbreak of it? Now is your body under attack. And, and the only way to know that with certainty is to run the test, because, as I've already mentioned, the signs and symptoms match many, the signs and symptoms of hush Emoto's of, lupus of hypothyroidism, of leaky, gut, like a lot of these signs and symptoms..

"But even more interesting is the connection to e b and countless other auto immune diseases. And I'm gonna linked to some really interesting research for you below this up Assode, but some of this research has determined that an E V infection can drive the activation of genes that actually turn on an individual's risk factor for countless diseases, including now again, we don't have a one hundred percent clarity around, why this is happening, but there is a connection between the virus and a lot of other diseases like MS Parkinson's. Autism type one diabetes juvenile rightous and silly act disease, just a name a few now without getting too scientific, and I guess losing my audience one of those theories is called the molecular mimicry theory, and basically, the immune system remembers certain proteins that make up the virus and then it scans the body for similar proteins. And then it attacks them as the target as is the case when the virus will attack the firearm triggering Hashimoto's disease. Another theory circulating around. The virus is called the bystander effect, and this theory, the, the virus enters the body or it's laying dormant in the body's cells. And as the virus is reactivated, then the immune system attacks the cells to kill the virus, but. In the process like the bystander theory is that you're also killing cellular health and divide is doing this to itself. So, in other words, your body is under attack. Your body is attacking itself. And that's what an auto immune diseases and autoimmune disease. Simply means that your, your body is attacking your own immune system. What's most important to understand about the virus is, when you are in an active state, it puts your body in a chronic in heightened state of alarm, what does that do? Well, it activates your stress response. So it elevates cortisol levels. It attacks the adrenal system like it activates your adrenals and your cortisol. Sadly what we do know is that e be activated viruses are more common today than they've ever been in our history. And in fact, and unfortunately more so with women than with men in our population in fact, immune diseases are. One of the top ten causes of death for women today. So what do we know about the reactivation of the virus? Well, we know it comes or is often triggered by an intense bout of physical and, or emotional, or combined stress great documentary for you to watch. If you haven't already seen it, it's called heal, and it really helps linked together, the correlation between disease and emotional trauma, and we know that we know now that emotional trauma can result in a compromised immune system. We interrupt this broadcast to talk about your lady parts, your moves, okay? So you guys are always asking me. What bra I recommend and the reason why I never respond is because I can't tell you what bra I wear, because your boobs are different. Right. And number one, and number two, I haven't had abroad, it fits right? I don't think ever. I swear. Well, I have one that I used to love, but it so worn out, it's ridiculous. So anyways long story short. I'm listening to one of my favorite podcasters, and she starts talking about this company where you can go to the website you fill out this quiz. And they sent her the perfect fitting bra I'm like, what do I have to lose? So I go to the website I felt the questionnaire and I ordered to bras they show up and one of them is like perfection. I can't even believe it and the other one is like close. But it's just a little bit often the straps. Then I get a text message the next day from their customer service department asking about my experience. I tell them how the one broad doesn't quite fit, right? This wonderful customer, service,.

"I don't need to remind you of all things that happen in like November December. So I notice that my energy was really off and specifically, what I felt is. I was really tired. When I woke up in the morning, like really tired and then throughout the day, I found myself like kind of wanting to fall asleep, and I thought this is weird because I'm getting the same amount asleep. And then I wasn't really like a really to force myself to get into my workouts, and I wasn't working out as often, and when I was exercising, I just felt like, oh man, this is not what your body wants my body just wants to do less. I really wanted to rest and I was allowing myself to do that. But my energy was still really low and it started to bother me. And then I started noticing my hair was like at I just wasn't cooperating. And I kept thinking, gosh, I'm having a bad hair day. Maybe I need to go get my highlights done or whatever and maybe need to change hair products, and it was just like limp and dull skin was really very dry, kind of splotch -i. In fact, I went to the doctor asking, like is this some kind of a rash that I'm having I went to dermatologist and they're like. Nope. I don't think so. I think, you know, maybe it's you've got fair skin. And maybe you're getting sun exposure there, Mike. Well, I knew I wasn't so that was strange now because I also know that it is not uncommon to experience these things if maybe you've been doing intermittent fasting for too long. So I took a break from intermittent fasting. I started a phase my diet again. I restarted with ignite. I went through all of the three phases of the one three one and, you know, my gut health was great. Other factors of my health seemed on point, but I just felt incredibly fatigued and I kept saying to myself, this is in your head urine, energetic person, ignore this, you know, your your, your mind is playing tricks on you. You're not tired. You're tired, which is like one of the things I'm kind of famous for saying in my exercise workouts. Why started saying that to myself like all day long girl? You are not tired, and then I started experiencing. A reoccurrence of severe brain fog, the type of brain fog where you know there's brain fog and then there's like holy cow. Something is wrong. Why can I not remember this person's name who I see every day, any got bad to the point where my family was noticing, and I was getting really uncomfortable because I'm like, wait a second. I've healed my brain you know. And I'm doing everything right with my diet, so like what is going on? And I've been doing all these treatments and I've got the before, and after of my brain. So like what is going on? So here's what I did. I started driving myself crazy..
Chickenpox, Epstein Barr And Jerome Kunkle discussed on Ben Maller
"Here's a Kentucky teenager named Jerome Kunkle made headlines suing the health department of his town over there vaccination policy, and it seems that he's now come down with chicken pox. I don't know. I'm laughing. Dive into chickenpox for the most not in our country, but he has deeply held religious beliefs. He says and from the family's perspective they recognize that they ran the risk of getting sick. And they were okay. Matter-of-fact concl- sued the northern Kentucky health department after it ruled at all students who had been in his school Edmund vaccinated against chicken pox, couldn't come to class unless they got the shots. But there were thirty two confirmed cases of it at the time. And anyway, Mr. cocoa said he didn't believe that that vaccine was the only one they were trying to push as so the judge. They went to court the judge ruled against the family favor of the health department. And so they're in the midst of appealing it. Meanwhile, the kid gets chickenpox. That's if I were to ask Dr Ken about that he'd say, well, you know, it's better to get the vaccine once you have the chickenpox though, you don't get like the get it again. Chicken box. Yeah. Yeah. Because the first time that I had it was was very mild. And then a couple years later, I got it again. And the second time was bad. I've never heard of anybody. I had it's it's a branch of Epstein Barr mono and all that other stuff comes from shingles. It's all the same thing. And I had it once in. Well, actually now, you think that you made me think about this. I got Epstein Barr and mono in nineteen eighty eight. And then I got the shingles about twelve years later. Of the fun way. I did not. In fact, I got I got being very sick on a on a trip that I lead of Americans classical music tour that I took and I was no it was not it was a great the kissing on a classical music tour. I did. The person that I was kissing didn't have it didn't come from her until you came along.

"But also to don't beat yourself and one or two with the study, the people who were did the snacks did were they active in high school because there's a difference. They're active high school, and then they got the college fifty also some versus them being completely inactive because on top of that if you are active, and, you know, life happens like don't beat yourself up because you didn't get that workout. So you have to almost have that balance to so and also to note that they probably had to be doing pretty intensive workout for the twenty seconds. So it works best with college students whose joints that when they are an active they can still go and a hard workout where whereas when you're forty inactive can't just jump in. Yeah. You'll be snapped. I will say that's a caveat. These were college inactive college students. Our next door is about this crazy about celery juice, which I've just realized it's been taking over, but they're going to kind of exam claimed or true. But the claim is he's cluster salts from salaries. They they flush out pathogen stabilize adrenals of heal because of the anti septic affect detox detox you to rise his exit acne. So Epstein Barr. Even singles say curious. So is there any evidence for this? And what we're finding it will not even finding cluster salts as a term. So it's not even scientific. So let's people use these terms that sound scientists, but they don't actually exist in nature. But there's been no actual evidence to back much of this up. But what we do know is that it does contain a lot of vitamins and minerals, potassium calcium. Sodium, silicone vitamin k Coomer and all these things that do kind of help a little bit boost immune system help to reduce inflammation..

And that most women this person says is low most women are low in project Roan, and so she's been taking a lot of progesterone cream progesterone cream progesterone cream, and she wonders is it possible to actually overdue progesterone. What say you, Dr Frank. Hey, that's a great question. And I'm glad I'm glad that came to you because the imbalance of estrogen and progesterone is very important for women's health. You know, it's not just hot flashes and night sweats. And I'm not minimizing that because I know that that feels horrible when women go through that. But there's no reason we need these hormones is because in a woman estrogen is critical to maintain a healthy brain, a healthy, heart progesterone is actually very important help maintain healthy bones. So when you're talking about middle and upper age and the potential for osteopathy Neo, which is sort of pre osteoporosis or osteoporosis. It's not just calcium and D three, you know, progesterone drives maintaining healthy bones and women so it is an important feature. And I would say in in my women over forty probably ninety percent of them are significantly deficient in progesterone. And and so that relatively speaking puts them in a position of being estrogen dominant and dominance that's going to increase the risk of benign or malignant lesions of the breast lesions of the over. So it is important to address the progesterone issue. But there are several ways to give that in in my younger patients that are still cycling. We do that with a natural. Bio identical crane used once a day, but we mimic nature, and we only use that day twelve to twenty five of of the menstrual cycle once they're menopausal you can pretty well use progesterone on a daily basis. But once you're menopausal studies have shown that that you can take a natural. Bio identical progesterone is to sustain release capsule in the evening typically helps menopausal women sleep better. And and that's just a real easy way for him to take it. What's really curious is that the absorption and blood levels? Typically. Earner and saliva levels course, which is what we've talked about a lot before. You're going to get higher levels commonly through that transdermal creaming, then you will three the capsules really cautious about the dosing, or you know, are we are we giving it orally? Or are we giving it a transdermal? And so the other thing is that followups important. It's very appropriate that after you start progesterone that should be followed up. I would say with the saliva test and three to four months, and and just make sure is. You know, sufficient is it getting them out of that estrogen dominance are they getting enough for just road to maintain? You know, what they need or is it excess and then we can back up so following up like that is really important at once. I get a woman stabilized. I'm okay to check her twice a year. But you really do need to check initially, you know, after three or four months initially, listen super health. That stocked Brian Frank, I'm Kyle, drew. So really what we're looking for is is optimization and balance and what so oftentimes happens when people want to take control of their health. Oftentimes, what that means for people is I'm gonna do it by myself with nobody helping I'm gonna read everything on the internet. I'm going to read every book on kindle, I'm going to then start buying stuff and smearing myself with everything and I've done that for a long long time. And then I got into Troy. Because I wasn't checking my levels of things. And at the time, it was Linda Lee who tested me, and I had way overblown it on I nine that was my thing. I was really going huge on I dine. But what I discovered is. That a lot of people are overdoing it with progesterone or overdoing it with some bio identical identical whatever they don't continue to follow up, and it becomes a huge problem. So it seems to me that testing properly and regularly with someone like you is absolutely key. I mean, I think that that's really the bottom line when it comes to. How do I know how much pressure progesterone I should be using it really has to do with the full workup and then testing regularly? Yeah. Yeah. And actually the the answer. You're jacqueline. Right. The answer. Is you don't know unless you test. I know you just you really don't know. And it's and it's it's kind of doubly a problem because progesterone DHEA or to hormones that are have a designation called grass G R A S generally recognized as safe, and so you can get progesterone cranes and DHEA capsules and premium stuff. You know, it helps with stores I'm not opposed to that. Yes. Someone is his actually following to make sure the levels are right. And and the thing that especially with the progesterone when when they get it, you know, in a little squirt to you from the health food store. They don't know how many milligrams are getting in in what they're you know, putting across their skin. And and so when we do that through a compounding pharmacy. We know exactly how many milligrams. We're dispensing dispenser. Well, it's good to know this, and that's why don't guess test. You're listening to super health Dr Brian Frank is with us. Okay. So we don't have time for a full discussion on fibromyalgia. We have five minutes left in this segment. But in those five minutes one listener wrote in and asked about what is Dr Franks approach to fibromyalgia. She says I've been going dairy free and gluten free and the results are kinda maybe a little bit of help. But really the ball has not been moved down the court really at all. What is your overall approach? And then we'll have another discussion that goes more in depth. Yeah. Well, first off is generally recognized as an auto immune condition, and and, you know, women especially are more prone, but people that have fibromyalgia. They just hurt all over just. They had body pain. They often can have significant fatigue with that. So cuts Conway, we see the term chronic fatigue syndrome slash fibromyalgia. Together, they can have brain fog. So it can be pretty debilitating. And what I do is trying to look at the the health of the patient overall. So generally, we're gonna do well to look at their their hormones on their drain on thyroid status. I I really like getting a a comprehensive nutritional assessment to see what vitamins minerals and antioxidants. They have sufficient or those that they had deficiency in. In terms of therapies, many people will do better by going gluten, free and dairy free. But then we got things like low dose. How trick zone is a possibility. We've got the bio magnetic terrorist therapy that we talked a bit about the past has been something that has helped a number of my patients with chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia, quite dramatically. We gotta we gotta consider possibly heavy metal possibly microbial person sharing candidate is person carrying other most of us. I read a study last week that ninety eight percent of mankind. Carey's? Epstein Barr virus. Epstein Epstein Barr. You say, yeah. Epstein Barr K, and that that's the common virus that people when they're teenagers and start kissing mononucleosis. But it's not just that a lot of get it from our grandmother, you know, when we're three years old. And fortunately, it's a lot milder at that time, but but we can carry that. So Epstein Barr cytomegalovirus one of the many many herpes viruses. There's not just to and and so sometimes, you know, that assessment is going to be real important to, you know, between the auto immunity, and the inflammation. You know, you're our brothers from ultra Britannica the ultra Churkin oftentimes make a significant relief in that, chronic inflammation. They have with fibromyalgia. I've had patients we do. We do a very unique trans Venus laser therapy and really light. Yeah. Laser light into the bloodstream kills bacteria, viruses, and parasites. It kills cancer cells and stimulates the immune system, and and that has been beneficial for some of my patients, so really the answer is is that here at re-genesis health. We have a lot of different tools, and it really comes down to sitting down with the patient going through their history. What things have they tried that worked? What things have they tried that? And then seeing how we can come alongside and compliment that to get the whole body healthy rather than just, you know, patient at the symptoms. I love that approach and for the person who wrote in I need you to go ahead and make an appointment with Dr Brian Frank. He's up at re-genesis health. It's up and Edmond off, I thirty five the phone number is seven six three. Seven six zero three seven six three seven six zero three or you can go to re-genesis health dot com. It's R E. Dash Genesis health dot com. And I'd love for you to make an appointment appointment with Dr Frank one of the things that we do on the show is give people kind of an overview of the philosophy that Dr Frank works within and then you make an appointment and go through the full spectrum of testing and evaluation and treatment through his office. And that's why this is not the show that says call me tell me where it hurts in. I Kyle drew. I'm gonna tell you on the air what to do illegally because I'm not a doctor.

"Personally. I don't eat eggs. And the reason why is because of Epstein Barr virus and Epstein Barr. Virus is an auto immune condition that most of us have. So don't like hit the fan. Most of us have it, and it is related to the toxins and our environment. And one of the things that feeds Epstein Barr is eggs. So you can get a blood test of foods tippety tasked, many companies do them at home, and you can see what you're intolerant to. So for me every time I would do them expert shop, and I'm like, I don't get it. Like, I eat eggs, and I feel fine. I don't have digestive issues. Nothing's wrong. I feel great when I eat ice. In fact, I love eggs, but they kept showing up when I did more research. I found out that I have inactive Epstein Barr. So I never had mono if you've ever had mono that's upstate bar. The you have acute viruses that keep coming. Back. That's really to Epstein Barr, but you can still have it inactive in your body because most of us have come into contact with it. So the reason why the eggs and also all of the nuts for showing up as hyper sensitive to me was from the inactive Epstein Barr. So I have totally cut eggs out of my diet for that reason. So interesting every time I hold on a gas myself like because I feel like I sometimes my ego will tell me like you need some a little bit of animal protein, someone, you know, you're not gonna eat meat. So maybe you should have an egg. And then I just can't do wonder if there's a reason for that in the could have something to do with Epstein Barr. I'm gonna look into that. That's so interesting. Yes, I think if you really need an animal product, I would do fish over eggs, and then the conversation of hard all the wild has focused on the farm. So it's like what fish to eat, and you could do sardines. But like they're in cans, and you know, it's really hard back back in the day. Like, you just gotta fish from the river, and it was very different. Again. I rated as Iraq. Eating any animal products. But if you feel like you really need it. I would do a fish over eggs because at least it doesn't feed EV. I don't know. My ego can just sometimes told me that I think totally because we're told like you need a union animal products. But like what if the grounding came from like like, a roasted sweet potato and Brussels sprouts, and like beans, and you there's so much ground that you get from plants. I'm always thinks I end up to seating plants, and I feel so good. So good. On. Let's do one more. This one would actually be a combination of two girls that are kind of the same thing.

"Female to male and post menopause is about eight to one so women of childbearing years have a far greater increase risk in distribution for for. So there's a clear evidence both in humans as well. As in mouse models of lupus that the estrogen to androgen balances actually, very important in dictating whether a patient will actually get lupus. In addition. There is some evidence that even suggest that the gender differences can affect the organs that are actually presented. So there's clearly a automotive component in lupus as well as many other autoimmune disorders. And do we have an understanding of of why this happens is this because of hormone receptor expression is this because of different components of the immune system being activated. I think at this juncture, the data is not absolutely clear club. There's only one 'cause it's known that enter the estrogen androgen balance is extremely important. And like, and it is well known that the estrogen androgen balance has different affects the immune system itself. So let me go to the third component, which are the environmental components. All right. So we know that there are drugs that actually can cause lupus like illness. There's a medicine which has been used to treat hypertension decades ago. And also another drug that's used to treat a cardiac arrhythmias, and it is has been described that there are small subsets of individuals that are that do not have lupus that when they take these medications will get clinical syndromes that mimic lupus, they will get all the data auto antibodies as well as many of the clinical manifestations, and when these medications are stopped over time those symptoms. Resolve. But it is also known that there are other environmental factors that actually can trigger lupus not caused lupus, but can trigger. So for example, in patients that have lupus, we know that UV light. Can trigger lupus flares. We know that infections such as Epstein Barr viral infections can trigger Ducasse we know the exposure to silica dust can trigger to piss in patients that have this disease..
