If we're going to be healthy in the 21st century, we have got to keep inflammation under control. Inflammation is literally the root cause of all the different degenerative chronic health conditions, things like Alzheimer's, heart disease, Parkinson's disease, cancer, diabetes. These are all characterized by chronic inflammation. And so I went ahead and I interviewed some of the top experts in the world when it comes to and inflammation actually created a summit, it was called the Chronic Inflammation Summit. We hosted it in May of 2021. You may have listened, you may not have, but I wanted to share some of my favorite interviews on this podcast. And this is one of them, you guys are going to get so much value out of this podcast. And if you know anybody that's struggling with any sort of chronic health conditions, maybe they have pain in their body, digestive issues, autoimmunity, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, brain issues, please share this podcast with them. It can literally change and save their lives. And if you haven't already, take a moment and leave us a five star review. Your reviews help us reach more people and impact more lives. Thanks so much for doing that. And let's go into the show. Well, hey, everybody, welcome back to the Chronic Inflammation Summit. I'm your host, Dr. David Jockers. And today we're going to talk a lot about liver issues. We know the liver is one of the most vital organs in your body. There's so many different functions that the liver has. And we really need to dive into this because when we look at inflammation as the root cause of chronic disease, we have to look at the liver and what's happening there. And so our guest is Dr. Jay Davidson of Dr. jaydavidson .com. He's a two time number one international best selling author. And he was the host of the Chronic Lyme Disease Summits. He did multiple Chronic Lyme Disease Summits, and the Parasite Summit, Viral and Retroviral Summit and the Mitochondrial Summit. He's also the co -founder of the retail supplement line Microbe Formulas and the practitioner supplement line Cellcore Biosciences. I know my team, we use the Cellcore Microbe Formulas products and they're fantastic. We really love them. And so, Dr. J, welcome to the summit. That's great to be here, David. I just love the content. I mean, you've just to give you props for the listener. I mean, you've put together and researched and put together content for so many years and just so thankful for that because it's helped to change so many lives. So just really appreciate all the work you do. Well, thanks so much, Dr. J. And I know we go way back. We knew each other in graduate school when we were going through and getting our degrees in chiropractic and functional medicine. And it's great to see how far you've come. And you're really a leading voice in the functional nutrition, functional medicine world. So I appreciate everything that you're doing. And let's talk about the liver. I know you're passionate about this vital organ and it's a major area that you look at when you're working with clients. So what is the function of the liver? Yeah, I love this organ. I mean, you mentioned it's a lifeline of the body. It is a detox system, essentially, of our body. I mean, you have our kidneys that also have some function in that too. But the liver is really that primary thing. So most people know that the liver does phase one and phase two detox.
Fresh update on "heart disease" discussed on Bloomberg Daybreak
"They say one the nation was already vulnerable. When COVID hit, they had certain chronic illnesses. A lot of people were dealing There was a resistance to vaccination, but here's the thing, Nathan, it's not just COVID. Researchers are saying that chronic Illnesses like heart disease, it continues to drive that long term mortality crisis, drug overdoses, homicides, they also played a part two. Wow, okay. Apparently, it's never too soon to start thinking about Super Bowl ads because the Wall Street Journal has a story about one that's going to be coming again from Ecommerce giant in China. Yeah, so sources are telling the journal it's Timu. They have committed to buying multiple ad units during the Super Bowl. Now, this is a big investment for its parent company PDD Holdings. it's I mean, the priciest real estate on broadcast TV, Nathan, according to ad buyers prices for 30 seconds of ad time during the Super Bowl range from roughly 6 million to as high as 7 .2 million. Yeah, and it varies depending on when the ads air. CBS also requested, which this Super Bowl is airing, it requested that all Super Bowl advertisers commit to a matching buy across other CBS sports programming. could But it be worth it. I mean, Sensor Tower, it's a marketing firm, it found that more than 426 ,000 people downloaded the app on the Super Bowl weekend last year. So I don't know, maybe it's worth it for them. But we got to wait until February 11 to find out. I was really surprised this morning to find out that the national Christmas tree outside the White House house fell over in the wind yesterday. And apparently the New York Times is reporting that can you sort of insert your metaphor. Exactly. So yeah, that strong gust of wind, it pushed that 40 foot or way spruce to the ground yesterday. People are scrambling. They weren't sure if it was going to be ready for the big celebration on Thursday. But what some people have said, they've compared the tree to President Biden's economic policies. Others found it relatable because they say it was put up too early. They're tired of festivities beginning too early. I know I saw Christmas decorations Costco in in August. But some are saying the pressure is just too much. It represents the pressure of season. You know, I know I've wanted to topple over a few times myself during this Black Friday and Cyber Monday deal. It's one way to It's one way to put it. Topple over like the Christmas tree. Okay, Lisa Mateo, thank you as always. Lisa Mateo with the front page roundup for us this morning as we watch futures blow higher. S and P futures are up three -tenths of one percent. Dow futures about a quarter percent higher. And Nasdaq futures with a gain of four -tenths of percent. one Ten -year Treasuries now up 932nds. The yield down about three basis points to 4 28%.

We've got a great topic today. It's on food sensitivities that drive leaky gut and autoimmunity. I get so many questions about different food sensitivities, and so we're going to dive into that in great detail today, and our guest is the best -selling author, Dr. Peter Osborne. He is the best -selling author of No Grain, No Pain. He's often referred to as the gluten -free warrior, and he's one of the most sought -after alternative nutritional experts in the world. He's been on our podcast multiple times and always love our conversations with him. He is one of the world's leading authorities on gluten sensitivity. He lectures nationally to both the public as well as doctors on that topic and many other nutritionally related topics. He's the founder of the Gluten -Free Society, the author of The Gluten -Free Health Solution and the Glutenology Health Matrix, and he's got a lot of great content. If you look up gluten -free society, he's got a lot of great content there. And again, we're going to go into great detail on food sensitivities. You're going to really get a master class in that today. So without further ado, we'll jump into the interview. However, if you have not left us a five -star review on Apple iTunes, wherever you listen to this podcast, now is the time to do that. Just go to Apple iTunes, scroll to the bottom. That's where you can leave the five -star review. When you do that, it helps us reach more people and impact more lives with this message. Thanks so much for doing that, and let's go into the show. Well, Dr. Osborne, always great to talk with you. I know you're an expert when it comes to clinical nutrition and food sensitivity. Is this something you see in your practice all the time? So one of the common questions that people ask is, what is the difference between a food allergy and a food sensitivity, right? Because some people will confuse that term and they constantly will say food allergy, but there is a difference. Yeah, great question. I think the important thing to understand is any of the people watching, if you've been to an allergist and they did like a skin prick test or even a blood test, what they were measuring for was allergy. Now allergy is specifically defined as an IgE -mediated response. So this is a type of antibody that generally will cause very acute symptoms. Most people know when they're allergic to something because they feel it within a three -hour window. So from immediate, there's this window of reaction on what's called an IgE -mediated or an acute allergy, and that is immediate to three hours is the window. So symptoms like swelling of the lips, urticaria, hives, wheels, swelling, watery, teary, itchy eyes, these are all things that are super common. If you've ever known someone with like a peanut allergy and they ate a peanut or got exposed to a peanut and they were in the hospital and they pumped them full of epinephrine, that's an allergy. Okay, now in the same category under allergy, there's something known as a subacute allergy, which is the symptoms are not quite as aggressive. Because if you ever look at an IgE lab test, they grade an allergy response with six classes of grades, right? So you could have no response, which would be zero, and then you could have anywhere from a one to a six, six being the highest, right? So six would be like that anaphylactic type of reaction. A four or a five grade, those would be not quite anaphylactic, but still quite severe. But grades one, two, and three, we put in a subacute category, and this will cause symptoms that aren't always immediately aggressively obvious or life -threatening. So things like elevated heart rate, because what happens with an acute allergy is it cranks up your adrenaline. So your heart rate would go up, your blood pressure might go up, you might see a kid bouncing off the walls, right, with their behavior because of that type of response. So again, allergy, that we have severe and then we have subacute, and then we have sensitivity. Now sensitivity is a different wheelhouse altogether. There are multiple ways the immune system reacts to food. So we just said acute allergy is IgE. Now a delayed allergy, or really technically a sensitivity, can be caused by an elevation in IgG, IgM, IgA. There's also something called an immune complex. And then there's another reaction called a T cell response. And then there are others, but these are the kind of five big categories of what can be measured in a lab setting. And these are more of a window of three hours to three weeks. So now we're not talking about, hey, I ate this and my lips swelled and I immediately had problems or symptoms. We're talking about, I ate this, it created just a persistent ongoing level of inflammation. And I might not have felt it to the severe degree that I would feel an acute allergy. And so this is why sometimes it's subtle and it can be hard to detect. So I know a lot of people will try to do like an elimination diet. And elimination diets are great. I think that's a great place to start because it's free and you should be paying attention to how you feel when you eat your food. But a lot of times the sensitivities will not be found through elimination diets and they really need to be laboratory tested for because this is a hurdle many people hit when they're trying to overcome their autoimmune problem or their leaky gut problem is they don't, they no longer know which foods they should be avoiding. They've cut out what's obvious, but they're still struggling, right? And so this is where sensitivities come in again. It's just a much longer window and the reaction is typically subtle, consistent, persistent inflammation. And so that might look like joint pain that just won't go away. That might look like, why do I have these skin rashes that are just constant and persistent? Why do I have this constant ache in my GI tract or this constant heartburn, even though I fast or even though I do things properly? And that, again, it's a low level of inflammation just slowly erodes your body's resources and makes you sicker and sicker over time. So those are the two main kind of differences. Yeah, for sure. And what are the most common food sensitivities that you see? Number one, gluten. I mean, hands down, I mean, I would argue that gluten, anyone with an autoimmune condition needs to be gluten -free. At least that's what I've seen clinically. I'm sure you have probably a similar experience with it, but gluten is number one, dairy is number two, sugar is number three, actually processed sugar, which isn't good for you anyway. But again, a lot of people need to have a test to show them, hey, this is black and white. You need to avoid that. And then beyond that, it's very much unique to the person. I mean, one of the stories I talk a lot about is the story of Ginger, who I wrote about her in my book. She was nine years old and had a terminal diagnosis. She had six months to live, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. And she was allergic, or not, I say allergic, she was sensitive to blueberries. And every morning her mom would feed her a blueberry smoothie because blueberries are superfoods, right? And they're anti -inflammatory and they have so many great benefits, but in her case, they were part of her problem. So that's pretty random. If you think about, okay, blueberries, most people don't know, okay, they don't even suspect of food like blueberries or broccoli, right, or Brussels sprouts or something like that. I have people reactive to beef and people reactive to chicken or eggs, sometimes different nuts. So it's very unique to the individual. But I'd say if you're just guessing at where to start, maybe you don't have the doctor to run the test. Start with gluten, start with dairy, start with sugar. Those three things probably will make you feel tremendously better just by avoiding. Yeah, it makes sense. There's a common phrase that we use in natural medicine, one man's superfood may be another man's poison, right? And so, again, the idea of superfoods, we typically are calling it that based on the nutritional content, but not how the body's immune system is responding to it. And that's really what we're focusing on today is not nutritional element of the food, but the way the immune system is responding to it. And you can have amazing nutritious food like an egg, which is incredibly nutritious for your body. But if your immune system is reacting to it, it's not gonna be good for you. You're gonna get a net negative when you put that in your body. Yeah. Yeah, for sure. And so, there's a common diet out there that a lot of people that have autoimmunity or chronic inflammation use is the paleo autoimmune diet, right? It eliminates a lot of different common triggers. What have you seen with that? Have you seen good results using that? So I don't use specific generalized diets in my practice. Now, in my online community, I encourage people to avoid those three. So like our no grain, no pain diet is dairy -free, sugar -free, grain -free, not just gluten, but all grains. As well in the deeper phases of the diet, we eliminate things like nightshades and eggs and other things. But that's just generic advice. Anybody who comes to see me in my practice, I test, right? Especially if you're at a point where you've already guessed as well as you can on your own, like I'm not gonna guess better than a person who lives in their own body, feels what they feel every day. So I always run the testing. As far as diets like AIP, autoimmune paleo, I mean, they're great places to start again, but a lot of people that come to me are already on that diet. And that's where they're frustrated is that they're already really restrictive in that diet. And so my thought is, sometimes we have to restrict to expand, but why restrict more than what's necessary? And so just again, a large, overwhelming restrictive diet sometimes can seem daunting. And it's really hard for a lot of people wanting to overcome and just even kind of comply to that. You know, they got families and social things they wanna do, and that can really, really challenge them. Now, I'm not saying that they shouldn't make those changes if they feel better doing it, but testing is, in my opinion, the best option if you're hitting a roadblock. And there's a lot of different testing options out there. I know there's some popular tests like the Alcat test. There's IgG, IgM testing. There's testing with the food, you know, just straight up testing with the food cooked. There's a lot of different methods. There's a lot of different kind of lab testing strategies. What have you found, looking at a number of them, what have you found to be in a sense the most effective? We use a technology called lymphocyte response, LRA, lymphocyte response assay. And what it measures, it does a few different things. Number one, it measures IgG, IgA, IgM, something called an immune complex and something called a T -cell response. But it also, it's a live analysis. So you're actually watching the lymphocyte respond in real time. So you can see a reaction as it's occurring. And so as you subject the cells to different types of food reagents, you get a much more accurate representation of what a person is going to react to. There's some flaws with some of the antibody tests because antibodies, you can make an antibody to a food or to an external substance and it can be a protective antibody and not necessarily a damaging antibody. And so a lot of the IgG tests come back and it's not that they can't be accurate or helpful. It's that they can give you an overwhelming list of food reactions. So like, you know, the average person that I see that runs an LRA, they may have 10 to 15 reactions, you know, to foods. IgG testing, you'll get like 50, 60 reactions on a person. And so now, again, it goes back into over -restriction because these IgG tests do not differentiate between friendly or damaging antibodies. And that's where, again, diet restriction is already hard. Let's make it less hard, but let's do let's make it more accurate for the patient to, you know, to embark on diet change without feeling so overwhelmed that it seems impossible. Yeah, yes, that's really good. So LRA, lymphocyte reaction, response assay, response assay. Yep. So really good, really good information there. Now, how about home testing? People will do things like muscle testing, pulse testing, things like that. Have you seen, you know, have you seen any sort of positive, positive results with that? I mean, I don't do muscle testing, I trained in it. I actually trained with the creator of muscle testing years ago, and what I found was it's subjective testing and it's not that it can't be helpful. There are a lot of people that have been helped by muscle testing, but what I find is it changes too radically quick. And so what you get is you get, OK, this week you're reactive to this, next week you're reactive to that, and it's just a lot of bouncing around without a consistency and a reliability. The immune system has a six month life cycle. This is another reason why I like lymphocyte response. It's because when we test someone, we see a reaction, we know that reaction is going to be there as long as the life of that lymphocyte is there. So, you know, generally speaking, when we take somebody on a restrictive diet based on their test results, it's not a permanent restriction. It's a six to eight month restriction because we know we're going to recycle the immune system in that process. On the other side of recycling the immune system, the immune system, when those new cells come along, they're less angry. Remember what autoimmune disease is. It's like post -traumatic stress of the immune system. Your immune system is attacking food. It's attacking the environment. It's attacking you and it's very angry and it's very prone and quick to reaction. So we have to calm that down. Right. And that first generation of cells, if we can calm that down, then the next daughter cells that come along that next generation will be a lot less aggressive. And this is what I mean earlier by we restrict to expand. So we restrict initially and then we're able to come back a lot of times after that initial restriction and it re -expand their diet because their immune systems are more tolerable to things. The immune system shouldn't overreact to food like that. Our immune systems are designed to handle most things, but we're subjected to so many dangerous chemicals and toxins, preservatives, pesticides and drugs too. So many people rely on medicines to treat their symptoms and don't realize that drugs damage the immune system and damage the GI tract. So you end up with basically a collection of allergies and sensitivities over time that now you now the act of eating becomes an act of war. And so your immune system is always on high alert. So, again, I know that wasn't exactly your question. You were asking about muscle testing and some of these other things. I just don't rely on those because my opinion of those is that they're just too subjective to base major decisions on for long periods of time. And that type of data changes too radically. It's too different. Even when I trained in applied kinesiology, my instructor, I would watch him get different results in the same person within a 10 minute time frame. And that like to me, that was just not objectively acceptable as a means to use clinically and feel comfortable about the accuracy. Yeah, that makes sense. And typically by the time people are getting to somebody like you, they've tried a lot of these different elimination diets, a lot of different strategies to kind of try to figure out and they've eliminated a lot of things and they've tried a whole bunch of different supplements and then they're like, I can't figure this out. So they go in for you and they really need that objective testing. Right. So they know exactly what to do. That's it. That's it. Objectivity is people never come to me first. They always come to me like six. Right. Yeah, yeah, for sure. And so you're saying, OK, so the immune system has that six to eight month life cycle. So when somebody comes in, they get tested, you know, 10 foods or whatever it is, blueberries are on there. They come off these foods for for six, eight months. How do you how do you go about the testing? Yeah. So we make a recommendation at least six months. And then it's based on follow up, depending on, you know, as they come back in and we're following up and we're seeing how they're progressing along, if they're if they're doing fantastically well and they're ready to reintroduce some foods, we'll retest those foods and make sure they're not still reacting to those foods because these are delayed hypersensitivity reactions. Remember, the window is three hours to three weeks and the symptoms are not always super aggressive. So I don't want them to I don't want to just tell them, hey, yeah, go ahead and reintroduce it and hope for the best. Again, objectivity is the rule of thumb. So we retest them for the foods they'd like to reintroduce back into their diets. And if they're no longer reacting, then, you know, they get they get the green light. Yeah, for sure. That makes sense. Now, what a lot of people are wondering, why does somebody develop a reaction to a blueberry? Right. Or to beef. But then, you know, not to let's say, you know, on the test, it doesn't show up that they're testing to rice or to corn or something along those lines. You know, everybody's unique and different, and a lot of times what what we do sometimes correlate is. When their guts when their guts are leaking, they're reacting predominantly to the staple foods of choice that they have. Right. So if they're, you know, if they're a beef junkie, you know, and all they eat is or a lot of what they eat is beef or broccoli or, you know, whatever it might be, we oftentimes will see those reactions showing up again. It's because their guts are leaking. Remember, behind the gut, you have the largest conglomeration of immune tissue that exists inside your entire body. It's called the gult, the gastro -associated lymphoid tissue. So if your gut's leaking, then those proteins from those foods are just basically bombarding your gut and not being properly checked by the barrier of the gut. There's four barriers in your gut that act like gates. Right. So it's like, hey, the first gate. Yeah, you look good. Come on in. The second gate. Yeah, you look good. Keep coming. Until they access the bloodstream. But when there's a leaky gut, those gate guards are on vacation. They're gone. And so now those foods are just bombarding the immune system and the immune system's like, how did these guys get here? They don't belong in this party. They haven't been checked and they haven't been appropriately tagged. We have to react against everything. And so whatever's coming through the pipeline is what we're going to see a lot of reactions to typically. Yeah, it makes a lot of sense. So typically it's what you're eating a lot of. Like in Ginger's case, she was doing a blueberry smoothie every morning. She had a leaky gut. She already had an immune system that was on overdrive that was that had PTSD, like you were talking about, where she had juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. So it was going crazy and she's eating blueberries every day. So it's no wonder why it would react to the blueberries. Yeah. And then add to that, she was on methotrexate, which is a drug that destroys the lining of the GI tract. So she had no hope for healing a leaky gut, even with diet change, as long as she was dependent on that drug. And a lot of people don't realize this, but simple medicines like ibuprofen, right? Antibiotics, aspirin, over -the -counter Advil, Tylenol, these are drugs that when you rely on them on a consistent, I'm not saying if you took it once, but if you rely on these things day in and day out, they slowly erode the mucosal barrier in your GI tract. So they remove one of the gates, right? And then they make it easier for other things to go wrong. So you have to really look at at your pharmaceutical closet as well. And this is where a lot of people are trapped because they got, you know, medicine after medicine. They got an initial medicine to treat their symptoms, whether it's pain or whatever it might be. And then the drug caused damage in another way. That's what we call risk benefit. There's a there's a benefit to the drug suppressing symptoms, but there's a risk of what the drug is going to do the body over time. And now the doctor is treating the symptoms, the drug caused with a new drug. Right. And so this this kind of getting trapped in that polypharmacy is what allows a lot of people to really progressively get worse. And they think they're doing the right thing. Their doctor prescribed these things. It must be the right thing to do when in reality it's a it's a slow trap. It's a trick. I always look at pharmaceuticals as as pseudo compassionate, right? Because it's false compassion. Why? Because a doctor that gives you a drug to try to make you feel better, there's when when they're doing it without telling you why your symptoms exist, there's no compassion there. They're actually setting you up for failure. It's it's like your kids. If you just told your kids what to do all the time, but never taught them or educated them and kind of help them navigate how to make good decisions, then they would go out into the world and they would be you know, they would rely on you for the rest of their lives. Right. They wouldn't be able to spread their wings and fly. And this is what happens in medicine all the time. Doctors make you dependent on symptomatic resolution through chemistry. And unfortunately, the side effects of that leads to more of that. And people don't even realize that that's actually some of the biggest inducers of autoimmune disease are drugs that destroy the gut. Yeah, absolutely. And many of the symptoms that people are experiencing that are driven by food sensitivities, they're taking medications for those headaches, migraines, acid reflux, things like that. And I know a big a big class class of drugs that's commonly used are Harper medications, and that can actually, you know, very much induce food sensitivities and leaky gut as well. Yeah, I mean, absolutely. And, you know, beyond even that, you get the drug induced nutritional deficiencies, you know, that that happened. And so now the medicine is treating the symptom, but the drug is causing vitamin and mineral deficiencies that lead to the same symptom that the medicine is treating. And so now the patient's like, well, the medicine quit working, give me a new medicine. And, you know, again, it just stacks and layers and now they're malnourished, their guts are destroyed, and they can't heal because your body requires vitamins and minerals to heal. Like those are the building blocks for repair. And if you're if you're causing deficit of those things through, you know, through polypharmacy, then good luck. It's just not going to happen very effectively. Yeah, for sure. And the autoimmunity that somebody may be experiencing the chronic inflammation is really the body doing the best it can to keep you alive right now, because it's seeing all these chemicals, bacteria, bacterial end products, all these inflammatory agents that it sees as a risk for, in a sense, a quick death. Right. Something some sort of infection that could get into your nervous system, cause meningitis, cause encephalitis or pneumonia. And so it's trying to drive up overall immune activity so you don't get this, you know, life threatening infection. In the meantime, you're living for 10, 15, 20, 30 years with incredible joint pain from, you know, rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis or, you know, whatever it is, you know, Hashimoto's thyroiditis. And so your immune system is doing the best it can to keep you alive. Right. And what we've got to do is kind of teach the immune system that, hey, you're not in a life threatening situation by healing and sealing the gut, addressing those nutrient deficiencies, right. Addressing all of those types of things. Now, when it came to somebody like Ginger, for example, you talked about earlier, you started obviously you did this test, you found food sensitivities, right. You remove those. And so you kind of customized diet there. Now, what were the other things that you were doing to help her heal? So she was also gluten sensitive. Yeah. You know, one of her other foods that she was eating a lot of was rice. So if you want to get into this, but rice by law, by FDA definition is labeled can be labeled as gluten free, although technically rice has a form of gluten in it called Orsonin, which in my experience does plenty of damage to people who have gluten issues. So a lot of people that go gluten free, but they include rice as part of their staple replacement, don't do well. As a matter of fact, there are five year follow up studies that show that 92 percent of people following a traditional gluten free diet fail to achieve the inflammatory remission in their GI tracts. And these are studies done on celiac patients. And when you when you remove the rice and the corn and the other grains, guess what happens? They achieve the remission. And there's there are a number of research studies that show this. I've seen this for 22 years in my clinic. So in her case, rice was one of the things she was already on a gluten free diet traditionally, but she hadn't omitted the rice. And so we also did that. She also had several vitamin and mineral deficiencies. We test for deficiencies. And so those were things that we supplemented and made sure that she was eating the proper foods that contain the nutrients that she was lacking. And in her case, she was you know, she was she had a permanent port embedded in her arm because she was in and out of the hospital so often for pain management treatment. Within six months, that port came out that she was supposed to be dead within six months. That port came out. And then within another six months, she was in total remission. And this is one of my first patients in private practice. So she's gone on. She's graduated college. She's out in the world, you know, doing great things and having a family and everything else. So, you know, autoimmune disease, it's a scary thing. You know, it's you know, if we look at autoimmune disease, 140 of them and, you know, most doctors will tell you, you know, because we separate them out, that autoimmune disease is doesn't have all that great of a mortality risk. But in fact, autoimmune disease, number one cause of death. If you add up all the autoimmune diseases and you compare that to cancer and heart disease, you're going to see a lot more people dying of combination autoimmune disease. Unlike you know, unlike cancer and heart disease, they clump all the cancers together. They clump all the heart diseases together. But they don't do that with autoimmune disease. So it's like the redheaded stepchild of the industry, right? It doesn't get the attention that it deserves.
Fresh update on "heart disease" discussed on Live From Studio 6B
"You, BLM leader, and you're now endorsing Donald Trump, saying he's the best candidate we have. Why do you think he is the best candidate that we have? Because everybody else sucks. Is he just the best of a bad group? I mean, is he still is he not that great either? But he's just like better than the rest. Well, you know, I like Trump, you know, personally, and I think right now who we have sitting in the Oval Office is just a deep disappointment. You know, I deeply have disdain for him. And I really dislike the vice president as well. What what is it that why how why do you not like them versus like Donald Trump? I would imagine you're alone in this. Do you feel alone in this viewpoint in the world that you're in being in the BLM movement? No, I feel like I feel like people are starting to pivot off of that democratic plantation for so long. We've been slaves to that party. You know, actually, we've been mental slaves, afraid to get off of that plantation because, you know, we've been used and abused for so long that party, they don't value our vote. Their policies are basically racist policies. I believe it's a racist party that strikes at the heart of the black family and the nuclear family in general. And I believe Donald Trump is the opposite. He's he's going to tell you how it is. He's going to give it to you straight. He's not going to, you know, be a hypocrite and, you know, stab you in the back like the Democratic Party loves to do. Yeah. Really quick. Slick Rick just said people work for Carter. They're tired of working for peanuts. Very good one. This guy's the what? He was a co-founder of BLM in Rhode Island. Yeah. Yeah. Is he still like, I don't know if he's still involved. I got to follow up on that. The story's from a week and a half ago. It was in it was in local press in Rhode Island. But so because it's funny, he says, you know, the Democratic Party strikes at the heart of the family, the nuclear family. That's exactly what BLM does. And they had it on their website. They had it on their website. Yeah. But, you know, listen, the guys like Vince Everett Ellison, guys like Peter, I think Peter, I forgot his name, sheriff in New York, you know, they were lifelong Democrats and they became Republicans. And they say that they were escaping the plantation. It's slavery. This the churches, the clergy, the DNC have this grip on the black vote and people are starting to have a little sea change out of there. I just wanted to get to a quick clip. The U.S. Navy, the Canadian independent had a story. Here's a clip of a U.S. Navy report increased heart incidence since the vaxxers. So in July, Undersecretary Cisneros acknowledged the DMAT data, the database working properly and also acknowledged things such as myocarditis rising 151 percent. So what I did, I went in today. I'm doing the same thing, five year average. However, I'm comparing it to 2022 and I only am using fixed wing pilots and helicopter pilots, active duty. So we had hypertensive disease, 36 percent, ischemic heart disease, 69 percent, pulmonary heart disease, 62 percent, heart failure, 973 percent, other forms of heart disease, 63 percent cardiomyopathy, 152 percent. It's pretty extraordinary. And the new federal state of China, this group, DVS7, go on X and look up DVS7, 7.0. I believe they got this great video, 500 million supporters support the new federal state of China. Maybe we could just play a minute of this. That's cut number three. This is a Christian conservative rapper, Chinese. It's a great song. They just released it. They talk, they talk in the song about Newsom cleaning up San Francisco and, you know, fighting. I guess they call it the Lao Bai Jing. You know, they're the new federal state of China. They want to take down the commie. So check out that song or DVS7, I think it's DVS7.0 or just go to New Federal State of China, NFSC. I think you can find it there on X. So that's what I got.

reported on this last week Neil Monroe of Breitbart Sports Lynn Pinches walked away from her women's pool championship game to show her rejection of the transsexual demand that men can pretend to be women 12 days later on November 26 the English player got her deserve prize and applause from her fellow pool players Pinches said she was overwhelmed by the gesture and thanked her peers for their support on social media thanks to each and every one of you that supported me and continues to support fair play for women's sports she wrote on Twitter tight X titles and money mean nothing without fairness Pinches had earned her final place at the English pool associations 2023 champion of champions ladies on November 12th but the mother of three walked away when the association allowed a man to take the other side of the table after he used his transgender claim to beat a series of women a video of the moment shows that Pinches and Haynes vied to see who would break noted the New York Post Pinches won and shook hands with Haynes but then walked toward the tournament official and apparently declared a forfeit Pinches proceeded to unscrew her pool cue and pack it up as Haynes raised their hands in disbelief it added realizing what was happening the crowd loudly cheered and applauded Pinches for walking away two other women had earlier walked away from the pool table rather than play a man pretending to be a woman will not be sounds anymore Pinches tweeted on November 24th it takes a huge amount of courage to walk away from any match her applause came in via Twitter from a world of women and men who opposed the claim that men can switch sexes just by announcing they have an unverifiable gender identity that is superb said women's rights activist Helen Stanlin you you stood up and they stood with you because you did win respond to Joel Triesti I actually love the fact that from what I see it's mostly men that are in that room supporting you said one Twitter so they actually gave her the award for winning again Rick to your point you've been saying it for months now just say no yeah walk away yeah that's it just say no just say no to drugs just say no thugs there you go eight ball no eight balls in this corner pocket that side pocket big day all right I just queued that story up now roll it back to you let's do some more news here before we wrap it up news is brought to you by seven cells with Rick Delgado what's going on all right well this is a story that I was hoping slick Rick would get to but didn't have a chance so let's do it the NFL need to speak out it says here against this Kansas City Chiefs fan in blackface and native headdress the story coming from deadspin and you're gonna love the name of the writer the writer I guess you know it kind of speaks volumes about the the writer itself his name is Karen Phillips yes his name is Karen Phillips it takes a lot of disrespect it says here for two groups it takes a lot to disrespect two groups of people at one time but on Sunday afternoon in Las Vegas a Kansas City Chiefs fan found a way to hate black people and Native Americans on this at the same time this according to again Karen Phillips of deadspin I don't even know this was this place was still alive but they got sued out of existence the image of his career yeah the image of a Chiefs fan in blackface wearing native headdress during the road game leads to so many unanswered questions why did the hammer person give this fan any attention why did the producer allow the camera angle to be aired at all well turns out when you look at the kid he actually had blackface and red face on he had the colors of the Kansas City Chiefs along with the headdress so celebrating his favorite team the writer goes on to say that the answers to all this question while isn't the league's responsibility to stop racism and hate from being taught at home there they are a league that has relentlessly participated in prejudice if the NFL had outlawed the chop at Chiefs games and been more aggressive in changing the team's name this wouldn't have happened here he says there's no place for a franchise to be called the Chiefs in a league that's already eradicated the Redskins so again this is a story that's gotten a lot of pushback I mean and calls out the stupidity of the guy because they feature a picture only showing half the kids face in black but when you see the entire kids face as they point out later and the people on I guess that do the community notes on Twitter really took took this guy to task said that everybody did yeah the Kansas City Chiefs fan is not wearing blackface the other side of his fate is painted red and it's to show the team colors of his favorite team the Chiefs so there you have it just I mean we've just so stupid yeah and even Elon Musk came out about this which is what'd you say Damon what I didn't say anything I said it's just so stupid the whole story is just so stupid we've just gone so stupid yeah Elon Musk even ripped the sports blog for claiming the chief fan wore blackface he called it deception and he brought a lot of attention to the story as well as he slammed the well known blog this week after one of its writers claimed the Kansas City Chiefs fan was wearing blackface at a football game over the weekend and cowboy Don 10 in the chat says bring back the Redskins so there's the public consensus yes right come on already exactly come on already give me a break all right as always we salute our military active and active police firefighters first responders EMTs everybody on the front lines protecting us thanks everybody on the show Aaron Fran great job as always but most of all thank you the live from studio 6b audience have a great rest of

Inflammation is literally the root cause of all the different degenerative chronic health conditions, things like Alzheimer's, heart disease, Parkinson's disease, cancer, diabetes. These are all characterized by chronic inflammation. So I went ahead and I interviewed some of the top experts in the world when it comes to and inflammation actually created a summit, it was called the Chronic Inflammation Summit. We hosted it in May of 2021. You may have listened, you may not have, but I wanted to share some of my favorite interviews on this podcast, and this is one of them. You guys are going to get so much value out of this podcast, and if you know anybody that's struggling with any sort of chronic health conditions, maybe they have pain in their diabetes, brain issues, please share this podcast with them. It can literally change and save their lives, and if you haven't already, take a moment and leave us a five star review. Your reviews help us reach more people and impact more lives. Thanks so much for doing that, and let's go into the show. Well, hey everybody, welcome back to the Chronic Inflammation Summit. I'm your host, Dr. David Jockers, and today we're going to be talking about parasites and gut infections, how they provoke inflammation, and natural strategies you can take to help reduce your microbial load, to help heal your microbiome, and reduce inflammation in your body, and really thrive in life. And so I've got a great guest, Dr. Todd Watts, he's affectionately called the Parasite Man, and he runs Total Body Wellness Clinic up in Boise, Idaho, and you may also be familiar with his supplement companies, Microbe Formulas, as well as Cell Core Biosciences. Not only does he help develop supplements, but on top of that, he also educates doctors, lay people, different practitioners of all types on how they can help their clients, particularly clients with chronic inflammation and chronic, just chronically debilitating cases get well. He's well known, people travel to his clinic from literally all over the world. He also works with people over Zoom as well. So Dr. Todd, welcome to the summit. Thanks for having me on, Dr. Jockers. Absolutely. Well, you know, we got to start obviously by talking about parasites. And so really talking about what they are, your experience with them, and what kind of symptoms that somebody might experience if they have parasites. So it's interesting in my journey of my own health and wellness, and in many of my clients and patients, how much of a part this became of it, where in the beginning, I didn't know really anything about parasites, it was more working with Lyme disease and the co -infections and Epstein -Barr and many of the more commonly known things. So in this evolution of things, parasites came up with a doctor that I had worked with and he said, hey, look, your headaches and some of the other seasonal allergies and things that are going on, these are coming from a threadworm, a specific type of parasite. So this is what got me on to learning all about parasites and diving into the physiology within the body, what it's doing and what's happening.

A highlight from The Top 5 Most Inflammatory Food Ingredients to Avoid
"Hello, and welcome to the Dr. Jockers Functional Nutrition Podcast, the show designed to give you science -based solutions to improve your health and life. I'm Dr. David Jockers, doctor of natural medicine and creator of drjockers .com, and I'm the host of this podcast. I'm here to tell you that your body was created to heal itself, and on this show, we focus on strategies you can apply today to heal and function at your best. Thanks for spending time with me, and let's go into the show. Are hidden toxins and stressors making you feel run down and tired, worried about oxidative stress from exposure to EMF, 5G, heavy metals, chemicals, processed foods, and the like? You see, in our modern world, toxic is the new normal. No matter how health conscious you try to be, the truth is that every single day, you're being bombarded by harmful toxins and stressors. When left to roam free, these toxins take on the form of something called free radicals. Free radicals promote an unhealthy inflammatory response and contribute to oxidative damage on a site or level, basically like the rusting of metal or the browning of an apple that potentially leads to premature aging, a lower quality of life, and a range of health problems. However, there is good news. Antioxidants are crucial in combating free radicals and keeping you on track, and one of the most powerful antioxidants known to man is glutathione. Glutathione fights free radicals and molecules that cause cellular damage while repairing DNA and flushing out toxins, but here's the thing. Not all glutathione supplements are created equal. If you're taking glutathione in capsule or tablet form, you're missing out on key nutrients as they will simply pass through your body without being absorbed. You can thank your stomach acid for that. However, our friends over at Puroality Health have a patented formula that utilizes something called Mycell Liposomal Technology, which delivers the nutrients into your bloodstream, proven to be 800 % more efficient. Even better, it's backed by a 180 -day money back guarantee. And today we have a 30 % off coupon for you. Just visit PuroalityHealth .com, that's P -U -R -A -L -I -T -Y -H -E -A -L -T -H .com, and use the coupon code DRJ to access 30 % off today. Again, that coupon code is DRJ. Use that at PuroalityHealth .com and check out their Mycell Liposomal Clutathione. This podcast is an audio recording of one of my most popular YouTube videos on the top five most inflammatory foods to avoid. Super critical that we understand these foods, these food ingredients, and that we're reading labels and making sure we're avoiding them so we can keep inflammation under control in our body. And you guys are going to really enjoy this. If you know anybody that's looking to improve their nutrition, please share this podcast with them. If you've not subscribed to our channel, do that now so you never miss one of these important trainings. And also take a moment and leave us a five -star review. I've got a great one here from Mary. She says, Dr. Jockers has helped me learn how to take better care of my body through this informative podcast. Thank you for sharing your faith. Thanks so much, Mary. You guys can leave your five -star review. Just go to Apple iTunes, wherever you listen to the podcast, scroll to the bottom where it says, leave a review and leave us a five -star review. When you do that, it helps us reach more people and impact more lives. Thanks so much for doing that and let's go into the show. Hey, today we're talking about the five most inflammatory foods that you want to avoid. These foods drive up inflammation. We know that inflammation is at the root. Chronic inflammation is at the root of all chronic degenerative diseases. We're talking about things like dementia, Alzheimer's, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, autoimmune conditions. All of them at the root have chronic inflammation and much of that can be avoided because it comes from our diet and so we've got to get our diet, our nutrition right in order to keep inflammation down so we can think better, feel better and really thrive in life. And so these are the foods we want to make sure we avoid. Number one, processed sugar and high fructose corn syrup. So if you see sugar as an ingredient, most of the time it's not a good thing. Sometimes in some cases, maybe like a fermented coconut water or something like that possibly could be good. But in general, if you see sugar as an ingredient in something, it's not good. It's going to be processed sugar. And also if you see high fructose corn syrup or any type of corn syrup, you want to make sure you avoid that super high glycemic impact which drives up your blood sugar and drives up your insulin levels, drives up inflammation in the body, causes weight gain, causes blood sugar imbalances and again drives up inflammation. So got to avoid that. Number two, processed seed oils and trans fats. What does that mean? What is a seed oil? So we take a seed, for example, let's say corn actually is considered a seed. So we take the corn, the kernel of it, and we press it to get oil. There's not actually a whole lot of oil in there. And so we have to press it, you know, we have to take a lot of corn, right? In fact, to create one ounce of corn oil, you have to take a thousand bushels of corn. And so you would never get that in nature. However, it's really easy to do, you know, because our government subsidizes the production of corn. It's easy for manufacturers to get. It's really cheap for them. So they're able to produce it and you can get some some salad dressing that uses corn oil as their base, pour it on your salad and you get an ounce of corn oil and that corn oil is really high in omega -6 fats, it's damaged fats, it's pro -inflammatory fats that are unstable and drive up oxidative stress and inflammation in the body. So we want to make sure we're avoiding these seed oils, corn oil, soybean, safflower, cotton seed, peanut oil, sunflower oil, canola, I mentioned peanut oil. I think I mentioned most of them, cotton seed. So we want to make sure that we're avoiding those and also anything that says partially hydrogenated or hydrogenated oil, that is a trans fat, highly reactive in the body, highly inflammatory. And what happens is these denatured fats, these denatured polyunsaturated fats and trans fats get into the cell membrane of all the cells of our body and they will literally sit there for six months to a year sometimes. So it takes you roughly six months, sometimes a year, to actually detoxify these out of your cell membrane to get the inflammation under control. So you want to do everything you can to reduce your exposure to them, to reduce any level of consumption of those seed oils. Number three is gluten and you may have heard of gluten -free and gluten, but you may not know what it is. Gluten is a protein that's found in wheat, barley, rye, and chamouton spelt. Those are the main grains that have gluten. However, there's families of the actual gliadin compound that are found in all grains. And gluten can be problematic because some people have a major sensitivity or an allergy basically to it and they create a strong antibody response and they may be prone to things like celiac disease where the villi in the small intestine get completely destroyed. The villi are important. They're little pockets in the small intestine that are essential for our body to be able to really deliver and absorb nutrients into the bloodstream. When those pockets get destroyed, we're not able to extract nutrients from the food that we consume as effectively. There's brush border enzymes and all different types of mechanisms that allow us to utilize those villi to maximize nutrient absorption. So people with celiac disease, they right from the start have more trouble getting nutrients from their food. And there are a lot of people that have an allergy to gluten that doesn't even affect their digestive system. We call it non -celiac gluten sensitivity. So they have a sensitivity to gluten that primarily affects maybe their skin. Maybe when they eat gluten, they have more eczema or they have more joint pain or they have brain fog, depression, anxiety, different issues like that. And so non -celiac gluten sensitivity is a big issue as well. And then even if you feel like you tolerate gluten well, we know that gluten, the molecule, will actually stimulate the production of zonulin in your intestine. And zonulin is this protein that helps with the integrity of the tight junctions in between the intestinal cells called enterocytes. And the more zonulin that's produced, the looser those tight junctions become. So gluten has been shown, even in people that don't have a gluten sensitivity or gluten allergy, it has actually been shown to increase zonulin levels pretty dramatically to the point where the tight junctions in the gut become incredibly permeable, right? So the tight junctions, they become very, very loose and weak. And that increases the permeability and allows large undigested food molecules as well as bacteria and bacterial waste, things things like LPS, which we call endotoxin, as well as yeast, parasites, and all the different microbial waste to seep out into the bloodstream. And all of that microbial waste and large undigested food particles will stimulate the immune system to drive up inflammation in the body. So we know gluten is a major and a potent trigger of inflammation for some people more than others, but for all of us at some level, it's going to drive up inflammation.

Fresh update on "heart disease" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"So the Coke Network has made their decision. Now before I tell you about it, just so we're clear that for years Charles Coke and the Coke Network funded organizations and still against neoconservative warmongering. They even partnered with George Soros on something called the Quincy Institute to try to stop foreign intervention in wars. So I say that for a reason because it goes to show how inconsistent, unprincipled, undisciplined, and hilarious this endorsement is. One of the key pillars of Coke World is don't invade the world. Harsh critics of Bush, harsh critics of Dick Cheney. So they sent out a memo, Americans for Prosperity. And I just hope all of you guys know that when you go to your Republican precinct committee meetings and you go to your state party chair meetings and you see the Americans for Prosperity booth, many of the people that work there are wonderful people. Many of them are. But understand that more times than not it's a synthetic lens for open border chamber of commerce policies and they put on the jersey of grassroots activism to get you to buy in to policies and ideas that might be inconsistent with your worldview. They do not want a closed southern border. They do not want the American worker to be prioritized. They do not want to see the war in Ukraine settle down and broker to peace. They do not want to see the government say that children are off limits of trans surgeries. Instead they start they say well you know what we need is uh criminal justice reform. Excuse me? Black crime is a major issue in our country. Why are you pushing criminal justice reform example? So understand that some of those people are great people that work for Americans for Prosperity. But go read what they write. Go see what they publish. Okay so this is their official memo. It's nothing private. It's now public on November 28th and they're making their decision. Americans for Prosperity action to grassroots leaders activists and interested parties. Well I guess we're interested parties aren't we? November 28th, 2023. Early this year we said we renounce our politics before but the good news is that AFP action is in a position to do something about it. Rest easy everybody. Americans for Prosperity action is on the way to solve the Republican primary. A bunch of donors that you don't know that want open borders and are sick of Trump are willing to deploy hundreds of millions of dollars or at least tens of millions of dollars not to ballot chase voter registration or secure our elections but to extend an unnecessary and embarrassing and bloody primary. At the outset of the strategy we made clear that we'd be business-like in our decision. We would support a candidate capable of turning the page on Washington's toxic culture. A candidate who can win and last night we concluded that analysis but let me just say what they say about Trump. Republicans have been nominating bad candidates who are going against America's core principles and voters are rejecting them. That's what they say about the MAGA base and they have made their decision. Drum roll everybody. Who is it? Is it Vivek? Nah. Chris Christie? No. Doug Burnham? No. Ron DeSantis? No no no no no no no everybody it is Nimurata Nikki Haley. AFP action is proud to throw our full support behind Nikki Haley who offers America the opportunity to turn the page on the current political era to win the Republican primary and defeat Joe Biden next November. She has what it takes to lead a policy agenda to take on the nation's biggest challenges to help ensure our country's best days are ahead with the grassroots and data capability yeah give me a break we bring to bear in this race no other organization is better equipped to help her do it all right Americans for Prosperity the Koch network has now officially selected their candidate and declared war on many of you including Ron DeSantis supporters out there by the way this is a globalist neocon chest move chess move against the America first movement this is a salvo directed at you at the populist nationalist muscular class movement of everyday Americans that want their country back the border secure that want your kids to say they are off limits they want your kids to love America again they want something else and Nikki Haley is the vessel that they are going to use to do it they say Nikki Haley's in the best position to defeat Donald Trump in the primaries that's hilarious have you talked to a Republican primary voter in the last 10 years we're going to keep talking about this and there's a piece of tape that shows one of the reasons why they selected Nikki Haley the primary is not over it should be but the globalists they are they're mounting their last stand all right you've probably heard me it's actually now 25 pounds that I have lost and I'm sure some of you say oh Charlie I've tried everything that was me you know my first zoom call with my PhD weight loss I was kind of skeptical I was like come on guys all right I've earned this whole thing before about about about about and boy was I wrong they know what they're doing my PhD weight loss look this is 100 legit and people say well Charlie you've lost so much weight and I say yeah my PhD white lost hello but look they have a different approach and it's great I text with her she does a really really good job 25 pounds I'll tell you and I have more energy and I'm healthier than ever before here's why the program rids your body of the inflammation that is causing so many health problems if you look around today America is the fattest it has ever been our families friends and neighbors are dying of diabetes heart disease and Alzheimer's want to have a good act of life play with their grandkids travel hike to a waterfall go for a bike ride but their weight was holding them hostage they don't want any of you on experimental drugs for your brain degeneration from Alzheimer's or homebound with an oxygen tank for heart failure my PhD weight loss knows that losing weight is the best thing for overall health we are way too fat as a society and here's the thing if you're listening to this and you say boy I'm a little overweight it's perfectly fine do something about it use your free will your agency say you know what I'm just not where I want to be this is an empowerment tool for you all of these things can be prevented you look at heart disease the beast you know what they now call diabesity by the way there's a great new book by Dr. Peter Attia about longevity you want to live long lose weight look Dr.
A highlight from 1243. Should You Trust Pet DNA Tests?
"Celebrating the connection with our pets, this is Animal Radio featuring your dream team, veterinarian Dr. Debbie White and groomer, Joey Vellani. And here are your hosts, Hal Abrams and Judy Francis. Do you know what kind of pet you have? Well, certainly if it's a cat or dog, you probably know the difference. But do you know what kind of breed? Is it a mutt? What is making up the DNA of your dog or your cat? And do you care? A lot of people do. There's about 10 different tests on the market right now where you can send in saliva or cheek spittle, I guess? Yeah, cheek swab. It's actually the epithelial. So it's the cells that you're getting off the cheek, not necessarily the spit. Epithelial? Is that what you said there? I learned so much from you. And they'll tell you if it's what kind of breed it is or if it's made up of several different breeds. You did this, Judy. I think your results came back like lion and elephant. They weren't even dogs. It was so bizarre. She's full grown now. She weighs nine pounds. And it came back all these St. Bernard's, German Shepherds, Belgian Malinois. I thought, really? So that was a cheek swab. And then when I did the blood... Oh, you did a blood test too? I did a blood. It came back Jack Russell, miniature pincher and Maltese. And are you going with that? Oh, definitely. She's definitely Jack Russell. It came out 50 % Jack Russell. And that's what she is. Now, why did you want to know this information? Well, first of all, I didn't want a Jack Russell because I did my research and I know how hyper they are. And I'm not that hyper person. I want a more laid back dog. And so I did my research and got her from a rescue when she was eight weeks old. They said she was a Chihuahua, but there was no Chihuahua in this girl. And I questioned that as she got a little bit older. And I thought, okay, I got to find out. And I wanted to know what she was because people ask, people look at her, and everybody had their guesses. And it's like, I don't know. And I wanted to know what my dog was. But would it be safe to say you didn't want a Jack Russell, but you love your dog? Oh, I would not trade her for the world. I'll keep that little 50 % Jack. So the blood test really made little difference in anything, really, except telling people. Just what it was. It was kind of like bragging rights to know what my dog is and be able to say when people ask. That's basically why I did it. But then again, still, at least I know if there's anything I should look at, you know, with the breeds that she may be predisposed to down the line. You mean like a sickness or a disease? Health? Yeah. If she starts doing something or something happens and I can say, well, that's typical of this breed. So what kind of diseases and sicknesses are typical of, what did you say? Was it Jack Russell? Jack Russell, 50%. And a Min Pin? Well, we can see a lot of things with knees, so we can see patellar luxations. She's had two knee surgeries, two back legs. But that also fits with a lot of other small breeds. But, you know, there can be some host of skin diseases, allergies that we may not have like a specific test for. You know, but there are some conditions in some breeds, like say golden retrievers have a genetic linked with seizures. So if you had a yellow large breed dog and you didn't know what it was and it started developing seizures. And if I knew this dog was a golden retriever, I'd say, wow, you know, sometimes golden retrievers can be very challenging to manage with seizures. And we really have to use every means at our disposal to try to get those seizures under control. So it wouldn't change necessarily, you know, would I treat or not treat, but it might make us say, okay, our expectations are this is going to be a more challenging patient to try to manage. So that's one example. But there's a whole tons of things, you know, cataracts are inherited, heart diseases with certain breeds can be inherited, and kidney problems with cats. There's a type of polycystic kidney disease, a kidney disease in Himalayans and Persian type cats that can cause different problems. So, you know, there's all sorts of things that there are genetic tests for. It doesn't mean your dog or cat will get them. It just may mean they have some genetic tendency or genetic marker for that. So I see these online tests and but you do it in your office there? Do veterinarians offer these tests? Yeah, I mean, not everyone is going to do that. But we we do like that. And it's one is it's kind of the ooh, cool factor, you know, so you can, you know, have a party and people will ask and you can actually have some answer that sounds, you know, like you didn't just make this up. That's one important thing. But I do think it can help guide some decisions on awareness and potentially your pet's health down the road. So I wouldn't say it will make me do something different for a patient as far as putting them to sleep. But I do think it's important information to be armed with to know what you need to worry about to watch for in your pet's life. I agree. And if you can't afford it and somebody asks what kind of dog you have, say snuffle up against it really will throw the middle. It'll be different. So we're going to talk to a lady today, a doctor, Dr. Lisa Moses. She practices pain and palliative care at the Angel Animal Medical Center in Boston. And she says you may not want to bet the farm when you do one of these tests, as sometimes the information may not be accurate. And I wanted to find out about this. How important is it? Are people making decisions with bad information? So we'll have her on the show in just a few minutes to talk about that. Also today, we're going to be talking to the folks over at Smoke Alarm Monitoring. What's this guy's name? It's spelled really weird. Z -S -O -L -T. Zolt. Is that Hungarian? What is that? Sounds like it could be. He says our pets are starting fires. He sells smoke alarms for a living. And he says that our pets are actually, while they're unattended, starting fires in our house. See, I hide the matches. You do? Little delinquents. Oh my goodness. Yes. What do you expect? But first, your calls toll free from the free animal radio app for iPhone and Android. Let's go to Gary. Hey, Gary. How are you? I'm very good, sir. How are you? Very good. Where are you calling from today? You have kind of that southern twang. North Carolina. North Carolina. How is North Carolina today? It's kind of warm. It's not unbearably hot, but it's a warm day. What's going on with the animals? I have the whole team here for you. Okay. Well, I've been listening to your program lately over the last several weeks and was interested in the discussion that I've heard about yeast infections, skin conditions, and the treatments. And then also, there was also somewhat of a separate discussion about the use of human products on animals and how effective they can be, or harmful, or whatever the case may be. And I wanted to tell you about my little guy. I'll give you a little background on him, a little of the tale of the tape. He's approximately eight years old, as far as we know. He's a Yorkie mix, he's a small guy, just a shade under eight pounds, and I found him abandoned out in the country. And he was in pretty bad shape. He was missing hair and had a lot of parasites and skin infections, yeast, and all that. And we've been battling it for nearly three years now, but he's made much improvement, just great improvement. I kind of took it upon myself to use a product that's designed for human females, actually, who might have that kind of affliction, and rubbed it liberally on the elephant skin areas of my dog. And after doing that for three or four days in a row, it really seemed to help clear it up. What do you think of that, Doc? Well, we have to be precise when we talk about different products, because there's some products that actually can have harmful ingredients in them, and some won't hurt, and actually have active ingredients that might be appropriate. So I'm going to back up, because when we talk about elephant skin, and kind of that thickened skin, like for anybody who's not seen this in dogs, it typically is when their skin gets real thick, leathery, they lose the hair in the area, and it actually, from a distance, looks like elephant skin. And that's a combination of what we call hyperpigmentation, so the skin turns dark, and lichenification, which is where the skin becomes thick, and there's extra layers, if you will, that kind of are put on top of the skin. Those things happen from a couple possibilities, and we can see it with allergies, but really with things like yeast and bacterial infections. So it sounds like you're certainly barking up the right tree there, but the cautions I have with some of the female yeast products that are used for vaginal yeast infections, there are some that actually contain anesthetics. A vagus cell, for example, contains an ingredient called benzocaine. And this can be highly - Well, that's actually what I used. I used the generic, but yeah, you're on the right tree there. Okay. Yeah, so actually, benzocaine can cause toxicities in both dogs and cats. So just licking it off their skin, it can actually be toxic to the red blood cells, causes what we call hemoglobinemia. So if it contains that ingredient, I would say, put it back on the shelf and save it for your wife in the household. But there are certainly, say, athlete's foot creams that contain chlorotrimazole, which is an antifungal. In that, we've used that on surface yeast infections. But the reality is, if we've got that kind of change in the skin, most of those pets actually need kind of a two -pronged approach. So the topicals only get you so far, and they really need to be on some kind of oral or systemic therapy. So most of the pets that I have with that kind of skin can take a course of maybe three months to get them improved, controlling the itch, controlling the infection. If they've got yeast or bacteria, then we put them on either an antibiotic or an oral yeast form, like ketoconazole, per se.

We talk all about the best advanced nutrition strategies to reduce inflammation and improve insulin sensitivity. There's a lot of things you can do if you are looking to lose weight, if you're looking to improve your blood sugar sensitivity. We know insulin resistance is at the root of all chronic inflammatory conditions, but there's a lot we can do from a nutrition perspective. We go through that in this interview. I talk a lot about intermittent fasting and how that helps improve mitochondrial function, helps improve blood sugar stability and turn on fat burning. We talk about how to improve your stomach acid, bile flow, pancreatic enzymes, so you can reduce the amount of endotoxins that are released from your gut and into your bloodstream that drive up inflammatory activity in your body. So this is a really powerful presentation showing you exactly what you need to do to stabilize your blood sugar, to burn fat for fuel and reduce inflammation. If you know anybody that's dealing with type 2 diabetes, prediabetes, perhaps they're overweight looking to lose weight or they're obese, please share this episode with them.

Hey everyone, welcome to the Reversing Type 2 Diabetes Summit. I'm your host, Dr. Beverly Yates, MD. It's my distinct privilege and honor to interview a wonderful colleague of mine, Dr. David Jockers. He's been a leader in many aspects of health and continues to help people have clarity about their health. One of the things that's so interesting as we do all the episodes here for the summit is I'm trying very consciously to give people different points of view and different aspects of what it takes for blood sugar success to be well. So with Dr. David Jockers, we're going to introduce him in just a moment here. He's a doctor of natural medicine and runs one of the most popular natural health websites online in drjockers .com and has gotten over a million views for monthly visitors and his work is really popular. It's been seen on shows like The Dr. Oz Show and Hallmark Home and Family. He's the author of the best -selling book, The Keto -Metabolic Breakthrough and also The Fasting Transformation. He's a world -renowned expert in the area of ketosis, fasting, brain health, inflammation and functional nutrition. He also hosts his popular Dr. Jockers Functional Nutrition podcast. Be sure to look up his work, check out what that he's offering. Dr. Jockers, welcome to our summit. Thanks so much, Dr. Beverly. Great to be on with you. Yeah. You know, I've really been excited for our talk because I think that there are so many ways in which people can eat and nourish themselves and some things are certainly more helpful or successful when it comes to blood sugar control and glycemic regulations than others. So with that in mind, let's dig in right away here. So please, if you would share with us your perspective here, what is inflammation and how does it develop? Yeah. Inflammation is just a natural process of healing. In fact, it's actually designed to help protect our body from some sort of chronic systemic infection and so, well, not chronic infection, but some sort of systemic acute infection from killing us quickly. And so I think we look at the history of mankind. More people have died from infections that got into our bloodstreams, bloodstreams spread throughout our body, went into major vital organs and killed us is what used to kill most of our ancestors. And so our body has created this inflammatory process to help protect against that. So the infection that gets in doesn't get into our lungs and cause pneumonia or our nervous system and cause meningitis. And so in order to do that, we created this inflammatory process to keep basically infection under control. And it's also part of the healing process. We break down damaged tissue and we try to remove that in order to build new healthy tissue. So for example, if we sprain our ankle, we're going to break down that tissue and try to rebuild new healthy tissue in that area. So inflammation itself is life saving. The issue is that it should be turned off when the appropriate area is healed. And so in our society, we have certain vectors that are turning up inflammation. For example, one is called leaky gut, right? So when somebody has leaky gut, there's damage, micro damage to the intestinal lining. And every time that person's eating food, particularly food that causes more gut irritation, they are further tearing that gut lining and they're not really allowing their body to heal properly. And therefore, they're spewing out bacteria and endotoxins into their bloodstream through that lining, through that hole. And that's driving up inflammation in the body because the body thinks that it's under attack from some sort of systemic infection or some sort of basically infectious process that could be life threatening. And so we've got to do what we can to get inflammation under control in our society. And so I think about it like a fire in a fireplace. You know, if the fire is on in the fireplace, it's great. It warms the house. You know, it creates a great environment, an ambiance. However, when we dump gasoline on the fire, right now it spreads on the walls and starts to burn our home. And obviously that's when it's a major issue. And so in our society, we have lifestyle habits that are dumping gasoline on the fire and causing us to burn up our home. And we just don't really understand it. We don't realize that's actually what we're doing to our body. And then we later, you know, after doing this for years and years and years, we get diagnosed with the chronic disease. But this is many years of chronic inflammation, damaging cells, tissues and organ systems of our body leading to, you know, that disease diagnosis. Absolutely. Absolutely. Thank you for laying that out so clearly. You know, it's so interesting in clinical work, sometimes it comes up. People are like, this just happened to me overnight, thinking that their body has attacked them or betrayed them and that their diagnosis has come on all of a sudden when in reality, nope, this was years in the making. So thank you so much for pointing that out for us. So anyone listening to this, if you have an inflammatory problem, please know. It took time for it to develop and it will take some time for it to heal. The good news is, if healing is possible, that it's likely to be a lot faster compared to the silent onset process. It's like too bad. It would be great if our body, as we get more and more inflamed, gave us a sound or a noise or maybe we turned polka dotted or something so we can know that something's going on here, you know? Yeah, for sure. And many times people do have chronic symptoms that are giving them a warning sign. And we just ignore it in our society, right? It's kind of like a check engine light goes on in our car. Typically we know, okay, I need to bring this in and get it looked at. But in our society, if we have headaches, chronic headaches, if we have chronic gut pain, if we have chronic joint pain, if we have skin rashes, acne, eczema, if we are gaining weight and we try some lifestyle strategies and we're just not losing weight, if we're gaining weight and we can go on and on, in our society, oftentimes the first thing we do is we go right to some sort of medication or we try to just ignore it. It's like we just let the check engine light stay on or we take some duct tape and just kind of stick it over it and pretend that everything's okay with the car. And that's really what we're doing. We're not actually getting to the root cause. Exactly. So that brings me to my very next question for you, which is this. What are some of the root causes of inflammation and how can this be measured quantitatively with lab testing? So when we look at root causes of chronic inflammation, one, and this is what you're really addressing in this summit, is a diet and lifestyle that is not right, right? So high blood sugar and insulin resistance, primarily driven by the food that we're consuming and lack of exercise, right? Lack of movement, food that we're consuming, obviously stress plays a role. So high stress, poor sleep hygiene and poor sleep quality. Sleep quality is super important. We've got to make sure we're sleeping really well when we are sleeping, but also proper hygiene when it comes to sleep. That plays a big role with our sleep quality. For example, shift workers, they might sleep eight or nine hours, but because they're sleeping at the wrong hours that are not right with, you know, humans, natural circadian rhythm or we're supposed to be sleeping at night, they tend to have higher levels of blood sugar and insulin resistance compared to people that are sleeping the same amount of hours and working kind of a normal shift and then sleeping overnight. So those are major factors. And then beyond that, we have things like chronic infections. So we know that when we have different infections, whether it's a candida overgrowth in our gut, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, H. pylori infections in our stomach, parasite infections, Lyme disease, things like that, that all drives up inflammatory processes in our body. Chronic overload of toxicity. All of us are exposed to chemicals in our air, water and food. So all of us have levels of toxicity coming into our system. But if our drainage and detoxification pathways are working properly, we should be eliminating a good amount of those and keeping our toxic bucket under control. And so we all have kind of like a toxic threshold. And so if we keep things under that threshold by keeping, you know, by limiting our exposure to toxins and then by allowing our body to detox and drain effectively, then, you know, that doesn't drive inflammation. However, if we're consuming lots of toxins from the food, we eat the air, we breathe the things we're putting on our skin, the water we're drinking, and then we're not doing things to help improve our lymphatic system, our liver, our gut, our kidneys. Right. We're not we're not peeing. You know, we should be urinating. Right. We should be peeing out toxins. We should be breathing them out. So respiration, perspiration, that's sweating, urination and defecation. Right. So we should be peeing, pooping, breathing. And sweating out these toxins. If we're not doing that, then our toxic load goes up, goes over that threshold, drives inflammation in the body. So toxicity is a big factor. You know, I mentioned stress. There can also be things like post -traumatic stress disorders. Right. So where somebody's had major trauma and their body never really recovered from that trauma and they're kind of reliving that trauma. Maybe somebody that was a war veteran or perhaps they were sexually abused or something along those lines. Right. They may relive those traumas on a regular basis, driving up inflammation in the body. So all of these things need to be addressed and and considered. Somebody might be living in a mold toxic house, right, breathing in mold and mycotoxins on a daily basis. They're trying to live a healthy lifestyle, but they're constantly overloading their their system with toxins. And so we've got to be able to look at all of those factors and make sure that we're addressing those to keep inflammation under control. Now, when we're measuring inflammation on labs, there's some easy labs that we can look at. You know, you can get done on blood work. For example, one of the most common is high sensitivity C reactive protein. CRP is a protein that our body, our immune system produces in response to inflammation. And, you know, so long as you don't get a false negative, like if you work out really intensely right before you get your blood test done, your CRP will be through the roof. That's actually a healthy level of inflammation, because after we exercise, we have inflammation to help our body heal and recover. So normally you want to not work out roughly 48 hours before getting the test done, ideally at least 24 hours. So you get the right measurement and your HSCRP should ideally be under one and really as close to zero as possible. And so typically it's not flag tie unless it's up over two or three, somewhere in that range. But anything over one is a sign that there's underlying inflammation there. And that's something that we definitely want to look at and address. So that's a big factor. You know, I know in this in this summit, I'm sure you've got people talking about things like hemoglobin A1C. We know hemoglobin A1C, that's a sign of the glycation process or basically when a sugar molecule binds to a major protein, like in this case, when it binds to hemoglobin, major protein that helps bring oxygen to the cells in the body and denatures the hemoglobin. And so it causes a sticky protein process. So we should have ideally like the optimal range really is is really under under 5 .2 on the hemoglobin, 5 .2 percent under. And so typically in our society, nothing is flagged until it's up over six, up over six percent. I like to keep mine under five, right? Between four point five and five. Some are in that range to make sure that my hemoglobin, my red blood cells have great capacity to bring oxygen to the cells so I can create the cellular energy I need to really thrive. So hemoglobin A1C is a really good marker. There's another one actually that you can test, too. It's it's it's called a novel marker for systemic inflammation. It's called GlycA, right? And so it's also a marker of glycosylation and again, a sugar molecule binding to proteins. In this case, GlycA looks at proteins particularly involved in the immune system. And so when that's elevated, I like to see it between one hundred and three hundred. Some are in that range, more closer to one hundred when it's up over three hundred. We know that's a sign of systemic inflammation. In fact, there are some individuals that will have normal HSCRP, but we'll see the GlycA elevated. And so that's a really good it's a novel marker. They've just been doing a number of studies on that, really starting just in the last five years. Very interesting marker. We know, for example, statin drugs will have a cholesterol lowering medications can have a mild anti -inflammatory effect that may bring CRP down, but they don't bring GlycA down. Whereas a lot of lifestyle strategies that you're talking about on the summit will help bring both of those markers down. And so that's a that's a really important thing to be looking at. Another key marker is LDH, lactate dehydrogenase, which is part of our natural energy, you know, our glycolysis and Krebs cycle. It's kind of a Krebs cycle glycolysis intermediary enzyme. And so when that's elevated, it's a sign that there's inflammation, particularly heart tissue related as well as liver. Right. Could be related to liver. And speaking of liver, liver enzymes are another really good marker. So when we're seeing liver enzymes like ALT, AST, GGT, when these when these are elevated up over roughly up over 25, that's a sign that there's inflammation affecting the liver cells. And then based on the ratios, for example, if ALT is real high, AST is kind of in the normal range, roughly 10 to 25 in that normal range. We know that inflammation is really affecting the liver when AST is high and ALT is more in the normal range or a lot lower than AST. We start thinking about that inflammation affecting muscle tissues or affecting the heart in particular. So that's a key marker for that. When GGT is real high up over 25 again and the AST and ALT are lower than the GGT, then we start thinking about biliary tree, gallbladder, bile ducts, that region. So it kind of helps us understand more of where that inflammation may be located. So these are just some of the markers. You know, if you get a good a good look, you know, you can also look at just a lipid panel, like where you're looking at your LDL, which is considered the bad cholesterol, your triglycerides, your HDL levels. We like to see the triglyceride to HDL ratio. If there was one thing I was going to look at on a lipid panel, I think all the markers can have some importance. We can get some good clinical data from all those markers. But if there was one marker I think is most important to look at, it would be the triglyceride to HDL ratio. So how many triglycerides, which are basically free fatty acids that our body can use as an energy source that are circulating in the bloodstream versus the high density lipoproteins, which are a carrier molecule that helps bring fats, lipids, all different types of molecules back to the liver from the cells. And so when we're looking at that ratio, we ideally should be under two. So under two parts triglyceride to HDL, roughly close to one. And that kind of close, as close to one as possible, one part triglyceride, one part HDL, like to see that triglyceride level certainly under a hundred. OK, and we look at that. That is a key marker for insulin resistance and inflammation. If your triglyceride to HDL ratio is up over two, if your HDL is under 50, you know, triglycerides are up over a hundred. You know, definitely a sign of insulin resistance and inflammation taking place in the body as long as the test is done fasting. Right. We always want to make sure with the lipid panel definitely can be affected if we eat a meal right before we we get that lab done. But that's a really key marker to look at and helps us understand how well our body's responding to getting nutrients into the cells. So when triglycerides are real high, we're not good at burning fat for fuel. We've got all these extra fats out in the cell or outside in the bloodstream. And those fats can become denatured and cause more reactive oxygen species and drive up oxidative stress and inflammation in the system. So all very important markers to be looking at. A lot of these tests are not expensive, but glyca is a little bit more pricey. But most of the other ones you can easily get from your physician. Just go in, ask for the high sensitivity, high sensitivity to your reactive protein, lipid panel, liver enzymes. Right. They'll run all of those. And then one other marker that we should look at as well as vitamin D levels are 25 hydroxy vitamin D. A lot of research out showing that levels on certainly under 30 nanograms per milliliter, where you're you're the lab will actually flag you as deficient, you know, linked with all cause mortality. So if you have levels under 30, you're all cause mortality, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, neurodegenerative condition. We talk about any sort of chronic disease and then dying of anything goes up. Right. So it's really easy actually to bump that up. Ideally, we do it by getting in the sun. However, most of us just not getting enough sunshine. We may not be living in an area where the sun's going to impact us in a significant way to get the vitamin D if we're up. Let's say we live in Canada, we live in Maine, we live in these northern climates. It's going to be harder to get enough vitamin D from the sun. But if we are in a you know, even if we are in that location, like in the summer months, trying to get as much sun on as much of your body as possible. Obviously, you don't want to burn. But outside of that, trying to get the sunshine is key. Sun offers a lot more benefits than just a vitamin D supplement. However, taking a vitamin D supplement as well can be really helpful. I usually recommend about a thousand international units per twenty five pounds of body weight taken with meals you do at one or two doses, depending on how much of that you need. And that will definitely get your vitamin D levels up. You want to test every three to six months or so and kind of look at where you're at. Ideally, I like to see it up over 60 nanograms per milliliter, usually not concerned about overdosing. The research shows that as long as you keep it really under about 150 nanograms per milliliter, you won't deal with any sort of, you know, toxicity, vitamin D toxicity. It's really hard to get it up over 150, although it can be done if you're taking like 50 ,000 units every single day. So if you're taking roughly five, 10, 15 ,000 units every day, you're probably going to optimize your vitamin D and do really well. And so those would be some of the key labs I would definitely recommend. All right, great, thank you for that list of people listening, friends, you know, here in the audience, please do take out your notes, get your paper and pen ready, or if you're keeping a Google doc or however you're keeping track and look at this list because it'll be helpful to you to help guide your own health and be aware. And you may find you're already working with a doctor who's doing these kind of testing. It's not time to time to up level. Hey, I just wanted to interrupt this podcast to tell you about my cell liposomal glutathione. This is an amazing product because our modern world is toxic. No matter how health conscious you try to be. The truth is that every single day you and I are being bombarded by harmful toxins and stressors, things like EMF, 5G, heavy metals, chemicals, processed foods and the like. And when left to roam free, these toxins take on the form of something called free radicals. Free radicals promote an unhealthy inflammatory response and contribute to oxidative on damage the cellular level. This is kind of like the browning of an apple. This is happening inside of our bodies at all times, and it's potentially leading to premature aging, a lower quality of life and a range of health problems. But the good news is that we can fight back with antioxidants and they are crucial in combating free radicals and keeping you on track. And one of the most powerful antioxidants known to man is glutathione. You see, glutathione fights free radicals and molecules that cause cellular damage while repairing the DNA and flushing out toxins. The only thing about glutathione is that not all supplements are created equal. You want a kind of glutathione that has optimal absorption capacity. And that is why I love the Pureality Health My Cell Liposomal Technology, which delivers the nutrients into your bloodstream. And it's proven to be 800 percent more efficient than other forms of glutathione. And even better, this is backed by a 180 day money back guarantee. And today we have a 30 percent off coupon for you.

This podcast is an audio recording of one of my most popular YouTube videos on feast, famine, cycling. We know that when we fast or we restrict, we eat less, we actually turn up self -healing and autophagy. And that is amazing. And there are some incredible things that take place inside of our body when we do that. The problem is that if we do it too long, we're going to throw off our natural hormone balance. And so, it's really, really critical that we undergo something called feast, famine, cycling. That way, we get the autophagy, the cellular cleansing benefits, but we also don't impact muscle development, sex hormone development, the development of our skin, thyroid hormone, our natural metabolism, our ability to burn fat for fuel. And so, that is why I'm a huge advocate and I practice personally feast, famine, cycling. And so, this training, I go through in detail exactly how to do this correctly. And that's why it's so important because if you're fasting but you're not incorporating enough calories, enough protein, and doing what we call feasting during your eating window, you could throw off your hormone balance and cause unwanted symptoms. And so, it's really critical you understand how to practice this and how to do it properly. So, be sure to take notes with this training. Be sure to share it with somebody that you know and you care about. And also, if you've not left us a five -star review, now is the time to do that. Just go to Apple iTunes, wherever you listen to your podcasts, scroll to wherever they say, leave a review, leave us a five -star review. When you do that, it helps us reach more people and impact more lives with this message. So, thank you for doing that. Thank you for being a part of our community. And let's go into the show. Feast, famine, cycling, this process of developing autophagy, cleansing our body, but also helping stimulate muscle growth and lean body tissue development. And so, my famous quote is that when you fast, your body gets really good at using energy in the most efficient manner possible. You develop metabolic flexibility, which is the ability to change our metabolism to meet the demands of our environment. So, if I'm exercising at a high intensity, like I'm sprinting, I need to produce energy very, very quickly. But if I'm sitting here doing this presentation, I don't need a whole lot of energy. I can be much more efficient in how I create my energy. And ultimately, you know, we need energy for everything. And so, the more energy we're putting into activity or digestion, the less energy goes into healing and repair. So, we want to be very energy efficient, but we also want to be very metabolically flexible. When we're strong in these areas, it's harder to kill us, in a sense. We have a greater survival advantage and greater resiliency to stress. And that's really the goal here. In life in general, it's about being as resilient to stress as possible. And so, fasting as well as feasting really helps us with that. So, when we feast, you know, basically, times of feasting are about growth. They're about building cells. They're about reproduction, okay? They're about basically generating lean body tissue, whereas times of fasting is going to be about cell cleansing, breaking down old cellular organelles, breaking down old tissue, and helping to heal and regenerate new tissue. So, we want to basically cycle between these. Fasting is very anti -inflammatory, which is very powerful for the body, whereas feasting helps stimulate pathways like mTOR mammalian, target of rapamycin and insulin, which have to do with metabolism, like basically increasing our metabolic rate, increasing muscle tissue development, building. So, we've got to be thinking about building as well as cleansing and healing. And so, when we're a child, we need to favor times of feasting. You know, we need a lot of food because we're building and we're building very, very quick. However, once we become an adult, once we become full -grown, you know, roughly around 20, 21 years old, then we can start to really push into the fasting, okay? We need more fasting than we do feasting at that period because we're not growing as quick. And so, again, the key here is creating very strong, resilient human beings. Now, hormone optimization is a key factor that happens when we have feast -famine cycling. We know that if we have a calorie deficit for too long, so if we're fasting for too long a period of time or if we're under -eating for too long a period of time, it can cause a lot of unwanted problems. We get too much autophagy, we lose too much lean body mass, our sex hormones drop, we just don't feel good. Our thyroid hormone drops, we have dry skin, we lose our hair, we feel awful. That's definitely not where we want to be. But at the same time, if we just constantly are feasting, we're going to cause tremendous stress in our digestive system, we're going to develop insulin resistance, we are going to develop chronic metabolic diseases like cancer, heart disease. So we need the combination of both of them, and that helps to improve insulin sensitivity, optimize thyroid function, helps optimize adrenal health and sex hormones.
A highlight from Biohack Your Fitness Routine with AI: The 5 Minute Workout That Gets Results!
"This is the Art Beauty podcast where we are always reaching for truth and beauty. Remember the brands on the show aren't paying to be here so we get to ask them candid questions because you deserve to be informed so you can make the best choices for yourself. Today, I am here. Oh, I forgot to introduce myself. I'm Amber, of course. And today I am here with Ulrich Demfla. He is the founder of Carol Bike. Now for all my fitness enthusiasts and maybe fitness wannabe enthusiasts, this episode is for you because he is here to tell us that we can get scientifically proven results with workouts in as little as five minutes. Mind blown. Welcome to the show, Ulrich. It is great to have you here. Thank you so much for having me. So I have to be honest, today couldn't have been a better day for this recording because I woke up, I had a terrible night's sleep last night. I woke up groggy. Fans have been listening to this and please excuse me. I am a huge fan of Peloton, not the bike though because my bike that I got during COVID is really like nothing more than a clothes hanger now, but I do the weight workouts. So I'm a big weightlifter and I'm in this program right now but it required 10 minutes of warmup, a 45 minute class, 10 minute stretch and I just didn't have the time. I was like, I don't have the time. And so this couldn't be more perfect because if I had an option to do something in as little as five minutes, well, there's nothing said there. Before we get into this groundbreaking and very interesting science, I was wondering if you could start a little bit because you have a very interesting background, right? You didn't start necessarily in fitness. Can you kind of tell us a little bit about that? Yeah, of course. So no, I'm in some way a stranger in the fitness industry. I'm a mechanical engineer. I'm from Germany. I worked for a lot of car makers and then worked for many years in healthcare as a consultant. And we set up and designed and ran chronic disease management programs and preventive care programs for people with conditions like diabetes, heart disease. And for that patient population, exercise is really the most powerful intervention and for everybody else, in fact, too. The only problem for us was just we couldn't get people to work out. We couldn't get people to exercise. And if you look at, there are some statistics that are really quite scary that less than 5 % of Americans actually meet government guidelines when it comes to aerobic exercise. So there's a huge gap in terms of what the consensus is, how good and how powerful exercise is, and how much we all do about it. And that's kind of what we've set out to bridge and to close that gap. And that led us to develop Carol Bike. Okay, we're gonna get into this bike, but can I just, before we go there, and I don't wanna derail this too much, but how do you go from making cars to healthcare? That's geographic a choice. So my partner, girlfriend, now wife at the time was in London, I was in Germany. And there's lots of car makers in Germany, but there's not many car makers in the UK, in London, but there's many hospitals. And hospitals are in a way also a production system. And so that's how I got into healthcare. And then we tried to make operations and the emergency room more efficient. And then if you think about that, really the holy grail is prevention and stopping people from getting ill in the first place. And one led to the other, and now I'm here, but life is a winding river and it flows in many surprising and unexpected ways. So that's how it happened. I love that though, because you followed your heart and now you're helping to save all of ours, right? We're protecting our hearts, but following your own. That is a wonderful story. But you know, if I think back what I wanted to do when I was like 15, 16 or so, it was actually developing something, a technical product that I can sit on. And in a car, you develop a tiny bit of it, but with Carrol Bike, I'm really involved in every aspect of it, the hardware, the software, the AI, and it's wonderful. So in some ways I've arrived at what I feel is my destination.

I was watching the other day I'm actually not a huge Martin Luther King fan or whatever super flawed guy But I was watching the last the audio was listening the audio of the last speech that he gave the night before he was killed April 3rd, 1968. He was killed the next afternoon And he gave this speech and he had just been like cheating with a bunch of different women. Okay. Yeah He had a tendency. Oh my gosh. No, he was like a ridiculous out of control But he gave this speech in which he clearly predicted his own death Like there's no doubt if you listen to this that God is speaking through Martin Luther King and I and I get I don't like Martin Luther King's program. I don't like his behaviors a lot of You know worshipping Martin Luther King is absurd to me, but I gotta say if you listen to that speech God is speaking through Martin Luther King. There's no other explanation for that and you're like, well, that's kind of consistent with what we know We're all flawed the people in charge tend to be more flawed But it doesn't mean that they're not capable of greatness So let's just be honest about it The second you have to feel the need to pretend that you're perfect you become a liar and you become paradoxically even less perfect Become a member members dot Charlie Kirk calm buckle up everybody here we go Charlie what you've done is incredible here Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campuses. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk Charlie Kirk's run in the White House folks. I Want to thank Charlie's an incredible guy his spirit his love of this country He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created Turning Point USA Embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries destroyed lives and we are gonna fight for freedom on campuses across the country That's why we are here Brought to you by the loan experts. I trust Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific mortgage at Andrew and Todd come One of the things I don't like is how these this primary is Ruining some people's friendships. I'm not gonna let that happen people know where my loyalties personally lie and I Got to tell you there's there's some really great people that are advocating in different camps We need to keep those bonds strong for those buying strong for just no other reasons and it's the right thing to do Great American and one of the sharpest minds in the movement Dave Rubin joins us Dave. Welcome to the program Dave How's this primary treating you? I'm sure that it's it's been uplifting fun You know, and I'm sure you just want it to go on for another two years Well first off early I want to say that no matter what happens in this crazy circus that we are all endlessly sucked into and cannot get out of the orbit of You and I were friends before all of this and I will be friends after this even if temporarily We're on I don't even want to say opposite side It seems that we're both I would say in different camps or but we're on Team America Dave We're just wearing different jerseys in the primary Is that fair to say that is fair to say and that's also why and I think you were kind of getting to this in That intro there. That's why it's been so disappointing to see the level of Craziness, I would say coming far more out of one side than another which is defending itself for the most part Because I've really really been trying it and for the people for your listeners and viewers that watch my show I have really been trying to stay above the fray to the best of my ability I am not perfect at it. Just like you are not perfect at it and and often politics brings out the worst in all of us But I think the best we can do right now is fight for the things we believe in and the people that you think And accomplish those things at a political and cultural level. That's what I'm doing that's what you're doing and and that's what many other people are doing and and hopefully if you do it with a Degree of honesty and integrity. I think you'll survive either way and I think a lot of people are kind of putting that aside And Dave we've done a lot of fun stuff together and we're gonna keep on doing it I mean we went to UC Berkeley together and you had your briefcase robbed from you in the early days of San Francisco Well, you didn't tell me I couldn't leave a bag in a car outside of Morton's That's right. It was in it was in a security car outside Morton's near the Transamerica building and Dave lost everything So Dave, I want to actually give our audience a fair opportunity here and this is not a gotcha in any way Just make the case for Governor DeSantis is policy agenda how you think the campaign is going Obviously, we've been you know voicing my personal opinions on President Trump's agenda what he's doing I want our audience to be able to hear all sides of it. You know, you're a very articulate I could say spokesperson for I don't not officially but obviously advocate Kind of make the case especially to our conservative audience. And then secondly, how do you think his campaign is currently going? Well, first off just to be clear I'm not a spokesperson I am not paid for you know By the campaign or anything like that. I would not even if they offered me money. I wouldn't I'm doing what I think is Right. I tell people what I think for a living and my life Literally my life and the life of my family and my employees who are in this room and them who work remotely But many of them who live in Florida and the two companies that I moved to Florida is all enriched by the things that Ron DeSantis has done here in the great state of Florida. I left I don't know that anyone in the entire country left California fled California more publicly than I did about a year and a half ago to move to the free state of Florida I would say and I'd love to hear your thoughts on this if you are a I would say right leaning person meaning you are Let's say a disaffected liberal or you're a traditional You know religious conservative or you're a libertarian something in that or you're just I said disaffected liberal But you're just sort of an old -school liberal who's a little confused about what time it is say like an RFK type You in essence should be loving every single thing that Ron DeSantis has done. I don't know one thing that Ron DeSantis Has not done that we would have wanted him to do Florida is safe. Its economy is absolutely booming We fund the police here. We're getting ESG out of our institutions We've done that which that's actually perhaps the biggest issue that people don't talk about that often because it's kind of in the weeds on How corporations are putting wokeness on all of us? I know you talk about it, but the average person doesn't and they certainly don't in corporate America. He has fought Disney He has fought the endless racialization of our children by getting rid of this AP African American Studies course That was in essence going to teach gender theory. We've gotten some of these books that are sexualizing our children out of schools He has done Literally everything that anyone right -leaning could believe in or could possibly want to happen I would say he's done one or two things that are a little bit more like right -leaning then then I will they're perfect for me Dave I got to say I love that stuff No, absolutely. So for example, Charlie, I'll give you one that you agree with DeSantis more than I do Which is the abortion one for me, Florida had Florida had 15 week Abortion ban and I've been to every Republican event in the year and a half since I've been here and I never heard anyone complaining About it DeSantis often said that he personally was pro -life And by the way, it's it's completely within his jurisdiction as the chief executive of the state especially when you win by a freaking crazy 1 .6 million vote landslide 20 % to do what you think is right and he has the Supermajority in the state Senate to make that happen. So he switched it six now I think it's possible that will hurt him in the in the general election I think at the primary it probably a little bit works to his favor But but I know he did what he thought was right and that's what he believes At he should use his power to do as the governor So I have a disagree with disagreement with him on that, but I think that's fine But I would ask you what is there anything that Ron DeSantis you're you're at least apart Oh, he's America's greatest governor. I've said that and I and by the way, I just I've said that repeatedly and some people say oh You're anti -de Santis. I said I'm not anti -de Santis. I've said he's America's greatest governor, but let me ask you Dave Is there anything can you what would what would you say would be your biggest my biggest complaint is the last six months? He's allowing consultants and Chamber of Commerce folks to run his campaign. He doesn't sound like the Ron DeSantis of last year I'll just be very honest. So so give so we can talk about the Ukraine give me like a specific example The Ukraine language, right? So the Ukraine language he was kind of dilly -dallying and flip -flopping on that at first. He was great His instinct was territorial dispute. Then he's talking about, you know more weapons for Zelensky and all that But honestly, it's also just kind of a vibe and a tone Dave where you know, the base for example I'll give you another example his miss handling of the Trump indictment I said that Ron DeSantis should have went down to Miami done a press conference showed that hey, this is my state Hey Vivek Ramaswami did it he ascended in the polls and now Vivek and DeSantis Vivek is working with Trump and everyone knows hold on a second But you're not gonna win the primary unless you understand Trump has a bait, you know has a built -in 50 to 60 percent But but hold on but if you listen to what DeSantis his words were related to the indictment He said he would not on the first indictment He said he would not extradite him and he's gone out of his way saying he's gonna destroy the very agencies I think has been more that's fair. No his policy fine But let me tell you how the base heard it Dave the base heard this and it might not even be fair I'm just telling you how the base heard it right because remember the base is like a lover scorned They hear one thing from a politician like Paul Ryan or Boehner and Lindsey Graham So they have a heightened sense of distrust and they love Trump and that's not going to change They heard Ron DeSantis go out of his way the first time to say well I don't know really what goes into payoffs to You know play boy. I'm not even saying that's fair That was just a joke and Trump makes silly jokes and sex jokes about everything like that The laws of Trump don't apply to everyone else Dave, you know that we're in this it's a different primary, right? The laws the guy is levitates. He's a once in a 200 -year, you know He says I'm gonna shoot somebody on Fifth Avenue and he goes up in the polls. He attacks He's not a politician at this point. He's something beyond a politician, which I also think there's a certain demagoguery That's somewhat dangerous related to that. But oh, by the way, again, you know, I you know, I voted for Trump I like no, I know No, and I just so that was another thing and then finally I know that I'm a little biased when very biased when Ron DeSantis Didn't show up at our event that bothered me, right? It wasn't some sort of gotcha or trap I think he would have done very well I don't think he would have gotten booed or anything But here's what I would like to see out of DeSantis, you know When we go to a college campus you say hey if you disagree go to the front of the line I want to say I want to see somebody get in the arena and say hey I'm willing to throw out the script. I'm willing to just take any question. I'm willing to kind of just fight It's more kind of total and attitudinal Dave your reaction sure So look if in essence and we'll pick it up after the break if in essence your your point is oh I agree with Virtually all of the policies and nobody has accomplished more than this guy and done everything I want to do But but there's a little bit of a marketing issue here All right, I'll go with you on that and I think that can be dealt with but we'll pick it up on the other side Well, look, I will say this the base the base is very smart and they're constantly Looking in a way of who's gonna betray me next This is the advice I'd get I gave the DeSantis privately and publicly and right now the Rubicon has been crossed where they think DeSantis is gonna betray. I'm not even saying that's fair, but but I'm not saying it's fair. It's honest I mean Trump Trump has done far more to betray the truth and and in a certain way the Respect of the base every time he lies about dissent, right? So when he lies about kovat in Florida who was the best governor for kovat in Florida kovat in the country DeSantis 100 % But who has more who has more in who has done more work and more praise for Paul Ryan Is it Ron DeSantis or Donald Trump for Paul Ryan? I can't I can't either way but at the same time we could talk about getting after the break I can't speak either way. I mean I could show you plenty of videos of I'm gonna tell you this this line of what you're getting at is not persuasive to the base and I'll explain why after the break Because I'm telling you the truth. I'm not trying to persuade anybody Okay, but no lecturing the base is not how you win a primary That's that what you're doing is why he's losing because they want to hear well Not necessarily the little things Trump got wrong. They want to hear a vibe of a fighter that's gonna go crush the unit party in DC Hey everybody Charlie Kirk here every day we heard about another familiar brand selling out their companies and going woke Americans are sick and tired of having left -wing propaganda jammed into every product they consume woke mobile companies are no different for years They've been dumping millions in the left -wing causes and we had to take it because you need a cell phone and probably thought there was No alternative.

I didn't Dave I did not mean to cut you off. Please finish the argument. Yeah No, it's all good at Charlie really like this is we would do this over drinks I want people to understand that like there is something that transcends politics here Well, let me ask you something because one thing that I've been confused sort of going off what you said right before the break Was that he's sort of that DeSantis has like handed this off to that glass of people or something Do you is it your position that that Ron DeSantis has anything to do with Karl Rove or Paul Ryan? Oh, no I because Donald Trump does that I don't think he does does that repeatedly and that's what all the people but Dave I'll be honest He's acting like he does He's acting like he might as well because he's acting and talking like Karl Rove is running his campaign. No, no, no No, hold on Hold on you do you have any evidence or any reason to believe that Karl Rove or Paul Ryan have anything? No, except for the fact that Fox has been very favorable to DeSantis and Paul Ryan sits on the board But that seems like a reach and and so what I'm not gonna do Dave is I'm not gonna go through every Truth social and go through all that with you know Trump saying But sure we don't have to go through all of that except but it is important I think to some degree because I agree with what you're saying about The base in that in their passion for Donald Trump and why it's important and shouldn't be ignored and by the way When I'm frustrated with some of the the surrogates let's say or some of Trump's behavior lying about Florida and kovat that sort of thing That's that's a direct frustration. It's not a frustration with the people that support him But for example, I mean I have the exact quote right here from DeSantis about a month ago I actually did a little research before I joined you today. This is a direct quote from DeSantis I have not spoken to Paul Ryan since I was elected governor and I've met Karl Rove won I really think it's important that your viewers who are the base understand that because if you listen to any of the surrogates and Donald Trump himself They're implying that he's somehow working with these people and that they are in charge of his campaign and everything else and it's simply not Okay, and I think that that's important. That's important to know but know that that's that's fair. I'm glad I'm glad we cleared that up DeSantis has gotten favorable treatment on Fox and Paul Ryan as a board member there, but let me let me put that aside Let me just say though the type of campaign Trump was on with Brett Baer what two weeks ago? Fair enough. I would say though That was a that was a mostly peaceful interview as we would say But let me let me just put it with the type of campaign I want DeSantis to run is like the vague which is there needs to be a sign of respect towards Trump But I don't feel with this from DeSantis. I'll be very honest DeSantis is a governor Thanks to Donald Trump that primary was not going well for him, right? So he's challenging the alpha beast, right? He's challenging the guy that did kind of Anoint him to win the primary and eventually the general the vague is smart The vague is reading the room that these indictments the amount of criminalization of Trump really Increases people's fervor of the injustice towards him. So DeSantis has a choice Do you run kind of a policy technocratic campaign? which is what he's running and I don't think it's going very well or do you read the room and you realize the base has an attachment to Trump and I'm going to respect that it seems as if it's in some kind of murky middle. I guess my question is Dave How do you think the campaign is going? Right. Well, I would say that first off just quickly on the Vivek things I don't want to spend too much time on that I mean It's fairly obvious to anyone paying attention that that Trump and Vivek are coordinating right Vivek is doing all Endless attacks on DeSantis no attacks on Trump and all of the Trump surrogates online, you know who they are They're always pumping up Vivek because Vivek is going after DeSantis Also, if I was to believe any of the polls and national polls, by the way mean absolutely nothing We're also seven months away from the first primary I mean really think about that like the first primary isn't until January of next year and Everyone's going crazy as if oh my god on any given day. Like the whole world is gonna spin out of control The you would never you would never if you were so confident of your lead you would never spend all day Attacking the number two guys. So that's just a little insider political jockeying However, I will agree with you that in terms of some of the strategy of the rollout They probably should have been more aggressive. I do see that changing. Look DeSantis just went on Russell Brand last week He just went on CNN for the first time last week I think he's doing Megyn Kelly this week if I'm not mistaken and she's been very very critical of him Russell's a lefty. I mean he certainly isn't you know, no one that you would call a traditional conservative by any stretch I would love to see him go on the view sit directly with those women and call out their endless lies about Florida, you know Anna Navarro who lives in Miami who rails against Florida every day He should sit right next to her and call her out so if you want if your question is really do you want to take some of the Anger that the base has because of the way Trump being treated and he's being treated horribly And I completely agree with righteous. I agree. I agree There's probably some way to do that But I would also say to some extent if you just want to view this if you just want to view this in the political lens Maybe this is why Trump should stop lying about DeSantis every which way and you know, he is Everything he says about DeSantis is a lie. Everything he says Dave. I'll be honest It's also a lie when DeSantis goes after Trump and says he was pro Fauci and all that. That's just not true But but and it is what it gave Fauci an award on the way out. We're out of time Dave Rubin.

My PhD weight loss calm Okay, really important discussion we're gonna have here It's a sensitive topic and there's some pending legal challenges around it So we sent out this tweet and it's gone totally viral. So joining us now is Preisha Mosley Who is a D transitioner and attorney Josh Payne who is the attorney for Preisha? And I sent out this tweet both of you by the way, by the way, welcome to the program I said this tweet up Preisha Mosley is a 25 year old North Carolina woman who is suing the doctors who aided her sex change According to Preisha these doctors approved cross -sex hormones and a double mastectomy after consultation as brief as two minutes They also told her taking testosterone shots would allow her to quote grow a penis in Reality Preisha was just a 15 year old batter battling depression anxiety anorexia Her parents fought against her transition, but were steamrolled by enablers posing as medical professionals Preisha and Josh. Welcome to the program I understand there's some legal sensitivities around all this and so Preisha tell us in your own words your story and Why you're pursuing a lawsuit? Um, so my story is that I was a very troubled teenage girl I had a very sudden hard and strong puberty and Basically, my body grew faster than my brain. I Started receiving attention from boys and men who just wanted to touch me And Then at 14, I actually experienced a sexual assault which led to a miscarriage and totally divorced me from womanhood and then at 15, I was online in the pro Anna community and that's a self -harm community where people have anorexia and enable each other and Transgender adults came into the community and started telling us that we couldn't eat because we were born in the wrong body and we were boys and Eventually, you know after hearing an onslaught of this for so long and proof, you know I I ended up believing it and I was desperate for a cure. I was suicidal and had attempted And I just wanted to feel better. So I Was met by medical professionals who said the same exact thing You know you you have a disease you were born in the wrong body, you know you and so on and so forth Um, and I'm bringing a legal case because I've come to realize that I am not a boy I wasn't born in the wrong body. I I was mentally ill I needed therapy I I needed someone to care for me. Um But that's what happened it's a very powerful and by the way courageous testimony that you have Josh You're the attorney for Preisha Josh. Can you fill us in on who Preisha is suing and what is the complaint? basically detailed That's right, Charlie as we allege in the complaint Preisha is seeking justice because she feels that she was deceived and misled into a Medicalized gender transition being placed on what they call cross -sex hormone therapy which in actuality is injecting large amounts of testosterone the male hormone into her female body and also having her healthy breasts removed by a plastic surgeon at age 18 after she was put on the testosterone at age 17 and Doctors and the counselors who were involved in leading her down this path and the the tragedy of it is that It happened and Preisha was left with her mental health issues unresolved Contrary to the promises that were made that these medical interventions would in fact cure her mental health Problems and issues and that they were a treatment for those mental health Issues but as alleged in the complaint that did not happen Preisha was left with her mental health still untreated and unresolved and with additional significant mental and emotional injuries and of course the physical injuries That were brought about by her being on testosterone for years and without her body parts So I just need to editorialize for a second There are thousands if not tens of thousands of other young people that are now walking into the same circumstances that Preisha Was nine years ago.
COVID dropped to 4th leading cause of death in US last year
"COVID-19 dropped a spot to the fourth leading cause of death last year. The CDC says overall U.S. deaths fell last year and COVID-19 went from the third leading cause to the fourth, the top three medical reasons were heart disease, cancer, and injury such as drug overdoses, car crashes, and shootings in 2020 and 2021, only heart disease and cancer were ahead of the coronavirus. U.S. deaths usually rise year to year in part because the nation's population has been growing, so 2022 saw the first drop in death since 2009, with a total of about 3.3 million losses.

Loneliness poses risks as deadly as smoking: surgeon general
"The U.S. Surgeon General declares loneliness an epidemic about half of U.S. adults say they've experienced loneliness, a growing health problem exacerbated by the pandemic that increases the risk of premature death by nearly 30%. That's according to an 81 page report from the office of doctor Vivek Murthy, the Surgeon General has declared loneliness a public health epidemic as a way to raise awareness, although that won't unlock any funding or federal programming, the report says isolation also increases the risk of stroke, heart disease, depression, anxiety, and dementia, in an AP interview, Murthy says there's no substitute for in person interaction, and it's not right, millions of Americans struggle in the shadows with a feeling like hunger or thirst that the body sends us when something we need for survival is missing. The report suggests that technology companies roll out protections for children on social media and calls on organizations to help boost the country's connectedness. Jennifer King, Washington
US adult cigarette smoking rate hits new all-time low
"Adults in the U.S. are smoking cigarettes less than ever before. A survey from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that one in 9 adults reported being cigarette smokers in 2022. That's an all time low. The preliminary findings are based on survey responses for more than 27,000 adults, but electronic cigarette use rose to about one in 17 adults, cigarette smoking is a risk factor for lung cancer, heart disease, and stroke, and its long been considered the leading cause of preventable death in the mid 1960s, 42% of adults in the U.S. were cigarette smokers last year the number dropped to 11%. E cigarette use rose to nearly 6% last year. I'm Donna water
Many Health Issues Lead Back to Sugar
"According to studies, sugar turns turns into, well, anything that you eat basically turns into sugar like carbs and wine and that kind of thing. Turns into sugar, fruit turns into sugar. And apparently it messes with your cells with your cell structure. So a lot of cancers have been linked to sugar. Diabetes has been linked to sugar. Heart disease linked to sugar. So it seems to me like if you really want to live a healthy lifestyle, you might want to do away with the sugar. People think of all these different diseases as being independent and it's true. They may have a hereditary component, but sugar seems to be almost like the culprit that keeps showing up in all the various efforts to kind of examine when you look closely enough, you find that sugar is one of the culprits.

"heart disease" Discussed on Dishing Up Nutrition
"Reverse insulin resistance and prevent it from getting worse, which is protective for your heart. So get those good fats in. We also want to make sure we're getting plenty of vegetables and fruits. Fruits and vegetables have antioxidants that help prevent damage to the arteries. We also really want to try to add some omega three fatty acids. These are essential fats that we only get from food, so we have to be pretty intentional about getting those in. You'll find omega three fats in things like salmon and sardines. There's also some in free range eggs and a little bit in walnuts. So these types of fats can increase your HDL cholesterol. So this is the type of cholesterol that is protective for our heart. We want to see that number a little higher. HDL cholesterol can help reduce inflammation and prevent LDL cholesterol that type of cholesterol that's more damaging from becoming unstable and damaging our arteries. So these omega three fatty acids can be kind of difficult to get in your diet, especially if you're not a fan of fish or you don't have access to that fatty fish all that often. So if that's the case, I do recommend supplementing with a high quality omega three supplement. Somewhere between at least 3004 thousand milligrams every day. So, we've just reviewed some key lifestyle aspects of protecting your heart and some key nutrition concepts to be aware of when you're trying to lower your risk for heart disease. So once you make these changes, I suggest tracking your progress by getting those numbers, getting those labs done again. And it can be helpful to have the support of a dietician throughout this process to help you interpret those results. And identify what adjustments you can make to keep making progress.

Dr. Richard Fleming Unpacks the Energy Department's COVID Findings
"Days, a very strange report came from the Department of Energy, that's weird. Why is the Department of Energy issuing reports about the origins of COVID? Well, the Department of Energy finds that COVID Wuhan leak theory is plausible, but with quote low confidence. That's a very deceiving headline. If you actually read the report, they said that it probably came from a laboratory. Why this is so, they're covering this up and there's a reason they're covering it up. To help explain is doctored Richard Fleming. He's a physicist, a nuclear cardiologist, and an attorney with 53 years of research experience. He has spent decades investigating what causes multiple health problems, including heart disease, cancer, SARS CoV-2 and COVID-19. And he is with us right now. Doctor Fleming, welcome to the program. My pleasure to be here. Thank you for the invitation. So doctor Fleming, do you believe that COVID-19 came from the Wuhan institute of virology? So I have no doubt that the virus SARS CoV-2 which leads to the disease COVID-19. We're paid for by U.S. taxpayers through a variety of agencies and between places in the United States like the university of North Carolina and the Wuhan institute of virology that these viruses were put together because the data shows there's probably three of them that we just called SARS CoV-2 or COVID-19 and everybody said, oh, it's one virus, but it looks like there's three of them. We have the data in the book showing where the money's came from, who published what research, what patents were connected with it, but to critical patents. And it just lays it out and chronological sequence so that you can decide for yourself. You can read the data and Americans are not stupid people. Unlike I think the perspective of the vast majority of politicians in bureaucrats, Americans have the ability to read through material and make sense out of it. If that information is just shared with them.
"heart disease" Discussed on WTOP
"Bryant, thanks for being with us. Physical activity is beneficial at any time of day, but a study suggests a benefit to afternoon exercising. More than 92,000 healthy men and women in the UK wore an activity tracker with researchers dividing the volunteers according to when they moved around. The Washington Post reports that no surprise those who engaged in physical activity, equivalent to at least a brisk walk, lived longer than people who rarely worked out, no matter what time of day. But the researchers also found that people who were active in the midday between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. were less likely to die from heart disease or other causes. The benefits of afternoon exercise for longevity were the most pronounced for men and the elderly. If you've never been married, chances are you've probably used a dating app. That's what the results of a Pew Research survey say, more than half have never married folks who responded said they've ever used a dating app or website. This survey was conducted in July of last year to understand Americans varied experiences with such sites and apps based on marital status. Use has remained steady since 2019, Mary folks are the least likely to have ever used such sites about 16%. Another interesting number about 3% of all married and cohabitating adult surveyed were currently using a dating platform, which translates into about 1% of married folks, and those living together. On Maryland lawmaker is working to prevent cyber flashing or sending unsolicited sexual images through online platforms. She became a victim of the harassment herself. Delegate Leslie Lopez says she received the sexually explicit image through a message on Twitter, recently she sponsored a bill that would create a task force to figure out how to respond to and prevent the harassment. This effort began when my friend reached out to tell me that she had been receiving illicit images and asked what protections might be in the law. Well, what I found was that there were no protections. But instead, there was a large gaping loophole that has a huge impact on women. Virginia already has laws on the books against cyber flashing, meantime in D.C., council member Brooke Pinto recently introduced legislation that would punish people who do it.

Lockdowns Cause 300,000 Axcess Deaths
"In 2022, CDC researchers found that heart disease deaths increased by 4% in 2020. Representing about 5 years of lost progress in the fight against America's leading killer. Deaths from drug overdoses increase too. With the nation recording a record 108,000 overdose fatalities in 2021. That is a 15% increase from the previous all time high count in 2020. Doctor Steven henke in The Economist at the Baltimore Maryland school that is Johns Hopkins, I believe that it is that Johns Hopkins found the strict COVID protocols in early 2020 save 10,000 lives across the U.S. and Europe. He led research into the true impact of lockdowns alongside researchers from Sweden in Denmark, finding the devastating policies only reduced COVID mortality by one tenth of 1%. Doctor hanke told daily mail, the lockdown study found that lockdowns in the spring of 2020 had a negligible effect on COVID mortality.

"heart disease" Discussed on Dateable Podcast
"There's a vibrating energy in your body and your hands in your feet. Think about the ways also in which we all continue to receive these priceless gifts from life or existence itself. I mean, the oxygen in the air that enters an extra lungs. Think about the ways in which your lungs love you. The ways in which your heart loves. I mean, rarely, I mean, when do the lungs are the heart, really ever get a break or take a break and do they ever complain, you're rarely you might have something happen, your heart disease is something sure. But think about the ways in which life and existence ceaselessly and endlessly and unconditionally supports us all even just physically. It's kind of mind-blowing when you realize how much we are all surrounded by love. You know, and of course, the negativity and the hate all get center stage because it's great, quick bait for the brain. The brain is always trying to solve a problem, and if it can find a problem to solve, it's even happier. So just notice the love that you're drowning in already, and the love that you extend on conditionally without an expectation of reciprocity already. And just notice the ways in which life for the universe or existence loves all of us, even the worst of us, and listening to unconditionally, it's just helpful to notice the love that already exists within you and your life already. I'm so intrigued, because I think maybe it's immigrant mentality, but I feel very petty with my love. If I'm holding the door open for someone, I expect a thank you and if they don't, I murmur something like. You're welcome. There's this idea that I grew up with is like, you don't want to be taking advantage of. Yes. So if you give and give and you don't receive it back, then you are being advantage of. I guess personally for me and people who may feel this way, shift that mindset to think love, there's abundance of love and let's just keep giving it guilty also.
"heart disease" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"More valuable than words right now Numbers and graphics Okay Some people don't like numbers I mean they just don't resonate It's just not in people's mind Charts do more good for some people But that's a way of delivering numbers So it is a way of delivering numbers but it's an important distinction I don't want to scare anybody off and just say hey look if you don't want to look at tables and numbers that's fine Now there are people who I would say just aren't interested In the news or they're not interested in that middle ground where you really want to see what's going on What really is the quality of our bridges and roads What really has happened with inflation If I said to you fuel prices today inflation adjusted are exactly what they were pretty much in 2007 I saw most people go wow How's that But it's true It may not make people feel any better because people get adjusted to those lower prices Right And this is not a USA facts point of view but it is my perception That citizens in the United States are population Our population likes consistency And when things go up and down whether it's prices or employment or the stock market that's unsettling to people Because they get used to a certain way of doing things And you can see a lot of that in the numbers that are available Some things just keep getting better which is awesome So it's numbers against the backdrop of history It is You have to have that context for them to matter Without context versus history first is population Some numbers grow just because our population grows In the context of other numbers that surround foreign aid is the easiest example for an aid is roughly 1% of all government spending And yet I think many Americans will say no foreign aid is money If we just cut it And I think most people think foreign aid goes to poor countries It doesn't It actually goes more to countries with whom we have some kind of military interaction Our country is trying to emerge from one of the most challenging periods in our history I think you would agree a pandemic And insurrection if I can use that word now historic inflation and a war in Ukraine I was shocked to read that nearly one out of every 715 people died last year from COVID What a statistic That's only in the U.S. Which helped to lower the average life expectancy based on your report by almost two years Where are we in this recovery culturally economically Well it strikes me a million people roughly have died And if you look at the number of people who died in 2021 versus 2019 the difference is almost exactly the number of people who died from COVID So life has been consistent except for this COVID overlay which has been serious and real The third largest killer if you will in 2021 was COVID Wow Behind only heart disease and cancer which are generally the big two So it is a big deal For sure and everybody knows that How are we coming out now Well you can take a look at the numbers hospitalization which we have on USA facts hospitalization cases deaths The death rate is down quite dramatically and that's an adjective But if you look at it today I think it's roughly 300 odd people plus or minus that are dying every day And I'm not saying that's a trivial number but I will say in my own case I've gone from being super super careful about COVID to just being careful That's right And the numbers do influence the way I think about this That's the thing though This is impacted people's worldview It's hard to measure that with numbers It is in the short run and it's not in the long run How so Well in the long run we're going to see are we driving the same number of miles that we did pre COVID We're going to see what's going on with commercial office space Is it the same We're going to see whether we're producing the same level of CO2 or will things because of the change in the structure of the economy Will that influence emissions We will say see what happens with wages We will see which sectors of the economy generate more jobs I mean she's been an interesting transformation If you take a look at jobs and job openings out of some sectors and into warehousing and transportation Logistics It's been a huge grower And if you stop and say oh okay that matches my mental model We're in the Amazon Uber eats generation That's right Because of the pandemic it makes sense You're talking about measuring our behavior though right Kind of getting a sense of what we're doing with our day It's hard to it's hard to measure someone's own perception of their mortality Yes I can't dispute that But let me even take that one on please Just a little bit Just a little bit Life expectancy we don't like forecasts We don't do forecast understood at USA facts Life expectancy is actually a forecast And kind of a wild forecast We had a pandemic last year the life expectancy comes down almost two years But that's for somebody born today Are we going to have another pandemic In the next 72 years I don't know how the numbers are done I think they're done professionally The thing we can look at is the average age at which people die And if you're thinking I'm 66 years old average person in America pre-pandemic I don't know the number off the top of my head would be 72 point something or 73 approximately I'm 66 years old Now I have to remember that I'm not necessarily going to die at the average age of death Right But with that said that probably represents my here and now the thing that's going to get into my psyche Is how long do I have At least it gets into my sake Which allows you to plan around I would like to ask you a little bit more about what's happening in the economy right now The issue of inflation is overwhelming just about everything else on people's minds And it's become a big political football here in Washington If people lost sight of reality when it comes to this the ability Correct Correct And there are times it makes perfect sense In the pandemic at least at some level for the government to step in make sense The levels the question Yeah the lawless question Infrastructure Bill Yeah If you actually look at the numbers as presented by the Department of Transportation guess what Our roads and bridges have been improving Slowly but steadily with the level of expenditure that existed pre the infrastructure Bill In fact most of the money gets spent anyway by state and local government Did we need an additional dose of money I just posed it.

So even <Speech_Male> though I'm <Speech_Male> sacrificing that money, <Speech_Male> it's making me happy <Speech_Male> and I'm <Speech_Male> okay with that. So <Speech_Male> if I can <Speech_Male> write a couple of books this <Speech_Male> year and <Speech_Male> get the <Speech_Male> podcast up and going <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> be able to monetize <Speech_Male> it, I'd <Speech_Male> be a happy person. <Speech_Male> You know, <Speech_Male> that I could do that for <Speech_Male> a long <SpeakerChange> time. <Silence> For sure. <Silence> Yeah. <Silence> <Speech_Male> I agree. <Speech_Male> What about hobbits? <Speech_Male> Do you want to get <Speech_Male> rid of? <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Male> <Silence> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> I've <Speech_Male> struggled with <Speech_Male> smoking for a long <Speech_Male> time. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Since I was <Speech_Male> 13, I <Speech_Male> think it's <Speech_Male> almost 39 <Speech_Male> years. <SpeakerChange> <Silence> <Speech_Male> Yeah. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> That would be the habit <Speech_Male> that I would, and <Speech_Male> there's <Speech_Male> months that I go <Speech_Male> without it, and <Speech_Male> months when I can't <Speech_Male> try to <Speech_Male> use a vape every once in <Speech_Male> a while, and it's just, <Speech_Male> you know, it just goes back and <Speech_Male> forth. It's really a roller <Speech_Male> coaster. So I think that's <Speech_Male> one of the things that <Speech_Male> as far as <Speech_Male> habits go, I would <Speech_Male> really like to <Speech_Male> break it and have too many <Speech_Male> vices. <Speech_Male> I don't drink. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> So it's <Speech_Male> so yeah, <Speech_Male> but it's certainly <Speech_Male> not good for me. <Speech_Male> For sure, <Speech_Male> with my <Speech_Male> family history of <Speech_Male> heart disease and <Speech_Male> other things, it's <Speech_Male> not helpful. <Speech_Male> So I <Speech_Male> think that's probably <Speech_Male> the biggest <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> habit that <Speech_Male> I have that I would <Speech_Male> like to <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> get rid of. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> I think <Silence> I used to <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> interrupt people <Speech_Male> and talk over <Speech_Male> them a lot. <Speech_Male> I'm trying to get rid <Speech_Male> of that. It's just <Speech_Male> not talking. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Just listening <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> and being intentional <Speech_Male> in my listening. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> To gain information <Speech_Male> about the people <Speech_Male> that are around me so that <Speech_Male> I can have quality <Speech_Male> relationships with them. <Speech_Male> I think <Speech_Male> that's <Speech_Male> something <Speech_Male> I've been working on <Speech_Male> for several <Speech_Male> years now. <Speech_Male> Just listening <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> and making that <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> a <Speech_Male> good habit to have. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> That's hard. <Speech_Male> It's a lot of times it's <Speech_Male> very hard for people <Speech_Male> to <Speech_Male> just sit there and listen <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> not just <Speech_Male> not just hear it, but <Speech_Male> actually ingest it <Speech_Male> into your brain and <Speech_Male> understand what's going on <Speech_Male> so that at some <Speech_Male> point down the line, <Speech_Male> you're <Speech_Male> talking to that same person, <Speech_Male> you can say, oh, I remember <Speech_Male> when you said this <Speech_Male> in <Speech_Male> I think it freaks <Speech_Male> people out sometimes <Speech_Male> because I don't think people <Speech_Male> think that <Speech_Male> the people are listening <Speech_Male> very well so <Speech_Male> to what they have to <Speech_Male> say <Speech_Male> that it doesn't matter. <Speech_Male> If you share and I <Speech_Male> think it's important <Speech_Male> to share. <Speech_Male> So I'm constantly <Speech_Male> trying to <SpeakerChange> <Silence> <Advertisement> remind myself just <Silence> <Advertisement> to listen. <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> Yeah. <Speech_Male> Good for you. <Speech_Male> Thanks. <Speech_Male> You're welcome. <Speech_Male> And that is <Speech_Male> all we have for this <Speech_Telephony_Male> episode.

I've got so many questions for you but let me start with us. Because we're you know we're focusing in on allergies during the worst season ever and it's possible connection to heart disease so what are your top for herbs and supplements for allergies and heart health. Well i mentioned course attended. That's number one. I love vitamin d. I mean vitamin is so important You know not only in in nineteen you know. People with the highest blood levels of vitamin d do not get to complications from cove nineteen. That's very very interesting. So i would tell any person. Suffering from allergies take vitamin d as well as a preventive kobe. Nineteen because i mean taking five thousand units a day will not hurt you over the in Along allergy season. I like n single system and we call it neck and ac lee. The fda is taken off the market. Because it's so medicinal. I mean. I i have loved naqvi years It's broken down to glutathione.

Do you know the people that silly actively you shouldn't take gluten but now we're seeing so many people who cross react with gluten. No i think gluten dairy and shook it would be the three evils and if people are suffering from allergies these foods should be avoided at all costs because it will contribute to the overall chronic. Inflammatory response dairies. A big one. Can we talk about that for a second. Well yeah i mean. I can tell you this coming from a diabetic family myself. My grandmother and my mother was diabetic.

"Welcome to Dr Thomas alive. This is Dr Tom Roselle indeed were alive today, bringing you Very interesting program one that I think is going to turn a couple heads. But nevertheless this is for you. And we do it on a weekly basis, bringing you the intimate truth about everything in your body. And you know, we call it our Asia's health presentation, and that's a whole different subject. But what I'm talking about today is, you know how do we differentiate the Platform of being female over being male. Isn't that interesting? Right? So there's a lot of things. They're very succinct and different between the sexes. And we're going to talk about a lot of different hormonal shifts We're gonna talk about in geological platforms. We're gonna talk about How We have to look at the chemistry is between a man and woman differently. And when you do have a problem when you have not only a hormonal problem, But when you haven't any logical problem, you know, what do you do about if you don't treat them the same because we're not the same immunologically. Women are women and men are men, and when you walk into medical office, you have to acknowledge that differential and treated according But who better to go over this with me, then somebody who specializes in the area. Our natural path, Doctor. Naturopathic medicine, Dr Stephanie Peanut. Hi, Stephanie. Welcome. Hello. It's always good to talk about this particular topic. Um, just because I feel like there's there's always new stuff. That kind of comes out, and there's always a different way to kind of look at things, too. So you're always presenting new information on this, too. So No typically and the top of that you're going to be presenting this week. This is our springboard into our our normal in house program, and unfortunately we can't have our in house. Yes, we're coming up to them. Hopefully keep our fingers crossed. But this topic uniquely feminine is really far more than uniquely feminine. It's the differentiation if you will of hormonal platforms and ideological platforms between men and women, correct. Yes, And what's interesting, too is I always like to look at it from a number of different angles. Whether it's the Chinese medicine angle, or we look at it from even the farm, a logical angle and essentially We have to look at how women and men different from everything and different aspects of life in order to come up with the best treatment for them. In order to understand why we get the illness is that we get at in order to move forward, especially when you're coming up with more holistic treatments that are relying on As much information on clinical research studies or involvement in in large scale size, because especially for women, they're not as included in some of those studies than information that we have on general health topics like Heart disease and osteoporosis and stuff as well, too, So it's very interesting to take different perspectives on how a woman's body is different. And then combine that to how we can best treat a woman and best diagnose her and come up with the best plan for her. That might be just ever slightly different than if we were treating a man with a very similar issue. Let's talk about that a little bit, because that's really important. We'll get into, you know a little bit of imbalances in treatment modes and so forth, but particularly in today's world, and we were touching upon it a little bit before the program with people who are shifting in their sexual preference is transgender. I wanted to be this and so forth. Succinctly. Can you look at two people who claimed to be one or the other the same way or do you have to really get down to the biological platform DNA genetic map that they were born with that they present with regardless of how they presented what they tell you. It's a good question. I think it's one that's gonna evolve. As you see more people you know, want to become transgender who are basically you also using external hormones to help them with feeling more like their identity is the same. But from a pharmaceutical standpoint, you know you would still look at them as as far as the gender that they're born with. So if I have a transgender woman coming in, that was originally a man. I still need to consider that their biological needs and stuff are going to be Uh, they're still gonna be, uh, presenting as a man. So if I'm working at their digestive track, how they deal in their liver, and how they do would say the hormones that they're checking in. I have to think that immense. Liver is able to process things a lot differently than a female slaughter their enzymes. You're gonna work a little bit quicker for certain types of medications, so I need to take that into consideration. The truth of it is is that you know if you have a transgender male that comes into the practice, even though that they may be taken estrogen. Is there still producing testosterone and that testosterone has a huge impact in the logically it has impact on multiple systems. You can't differentiate that you can't say Well, just because I say that I am I am Well, your body biologically and biochemically a saying time out not so much, So, you know, having said that, and that wanted to distinguish that because in today's world is important. It's not, and we're not drawing a judgment relative to somebody wanting to do what they want to do, because that's how they feel, and that's what they're motivated to get done. That's on them. What we have to look at as doctors, You know, how do they present relative to their physiological, biochemical makeup so we can treat them properly. So having said that, let's let's get into a little bit more of you know, this transition we've talked about, you know, uniquely feminine on an annual basis, and we we've talked about the characteristics of hormonal shifts. Menopause peri menopause. Ah, young girl becoming a woman, you know, but It happens in both we We've talked about menopause. We can also for guys, By the way. There's this thing called Andropause. We go into hormonal shifts as well. But most of this stuff is not necessarily Designed to be bad was going to put you down because of societal, uh, environmental conditions, Meaning what we eat what were exposed to the stress patterns. We end up struggling a lot. So let's talk about that a little bit. And you know if we were if you were going to see Oh, Said, coach somebody and say OK, this is what you should expect in a normal transitional phase. What would you tell them? And then how does that different with what really takes place?.

"Heart disease. Our recommendation is to leave the soda at the store and choose filtered water instead. Weight loss. We suggest drinking 8 to 10 glasses of filtered water every day plane filtered water or nothing in it. So let's talk about how two people get off the pop. Yeah, because it can be very addicting. It is it is. And what I would think about is what are you looking? What do you after when you're drinking pop, is it? The caffeine is that the fizzy the sweet? And that can help you to find a replacement for a lot of people. Just switching to water might not cut it exactly. And I always think, And this is a really good example. Um, to use the idea of worse, better best. So, of course pop is, you know the worst option, so if we could move to You know, an unsweetened iced tea or, um, even a pap sweetened twist Stevia like, Yeah. Is a matter of choice. They are and then eventually you can move to just basically drinking. That plain water. I like that. It's like sticking your toll and in the lake on it's cold, and you have to gradually get there. Some people and you have to evaluate who you are. Listeners. Are you someone that does cold turkey better or are you someone that six your toe in the water? Let's attack Lemaitre, and then you move a little deeper, little deeper. So pick what works for you to sort of start weaning off of that soda. Maybe make that your goal this week. How am I gonna wean off soda? Yeah. If that's if that's your issue, Yes. So I think it's important for us to Make these small changes, so we hear about it on the radio show. You hear about it? And then you start to make small changes to your not overwhelmed. Exactly. Yeah, if you try to do it all for most people It's just too much too overwhelming, and then you don't end up doing any of it. So that's my challenge. When if your listener and you listened to our radio shows is ask yourself what is the one piece I take away from what nutritional waiting wellness is telling me what is the one piece? I'm going to work on this week? Yeah. Then you hear the radio show the following week. And then you decide what's the next thing that I'm going to do? Yeah, makes it easier. And if it's not if you're not a pop drinker, maybe you focus on breakfast like we're talking about. You're gonna feel better. Just switching up your breakfast. I also changed listeners. If they have protein powders, Roll it over. Read the ingredients and check for the sucralose and the aspartame. Another one is a seven k. You want to check for these artificial sweeteners in everything? They're thrown it in a lot of things. Even your you know some vitamins. Yeah, that's a very, very good point.

Good to talk to you. I'm very well today. Thank you guys. I appreciate the opportunity. Yeah. Good intro. I appreciate you have some fans. Apparently they wanted they wanted. They wanted to see what you had to say. So we thought we'd bring out there can you talk about you know what you guys do and give us a You know, we're a couple of Johnny lunch buckets here, and the rest of our audience is much smarter than we are. So if you could kind of break down what you guys are all about what you guys were doing that inspire MD Sure, absolutely. Thanks for the opportunity. So inspiring ideas is a growing medical device company with a highly specialized, focused in stroke prevention and managing credit artery disease. That's that's an awfully big, bold statement by, um, But as as we all know, heart disease and strokes really account for the predominance of Really awful medical conditions, both death and disability and by way of our advanced platform of our stent technology called See Guard. In this really interesting, innovative design of applying mesh to the outside of our stead. We think we've created a breakthrough device that really is, has the opportunity to change standard of care. When it comes to help brought it order diseases managed and basically what you're doing is that's almost like that's that's a support system. Is it not? Sort of you're gonna stand that sort of creates the flow, But then that sort of supports the entire Biologics. Be around your vein and everything else. Talk about how that actually works for us, would you? Marvin? Yeah. So the simplistic view of this is it is a nightmare. All standard self expanding stand, which is pretty commonplace in vascular disease management. It's wrong Other but what's different about our solution is we have something called micro Net mesh. Which is for woven mesh outer layer about the thickness of a human hair, which is stitched to the outside, admitted and stitched to the outside of our state technology. Which prevents symbolic reactions or plan for protruding and breaking off during the standard procedure, So as many people know afterwards, sclerosis and artery disease grows over time, and what often happens is during the stent procedure. These particles of plant will break off and without On over later supporting filtration system. What ends up happening? Is these mini strokes post procedural, So right? You're right. It's a It's a very simplistic of it, but sophisticated solution. Hey, I We can't do an interview with a biotech bio pharma bio company without talking about the C word and that's Cove it, you know, obviously. You guys have been able to move the ball forward Little by little during this crazy 2020. Can you give us a top down looking what It's like being a being a bio farmer Biotech company in the middle of Pandemic Has it has it? I mean, you've got 35 years of medical experience, I'm sure you haven't seen him like this. You've been with the biggest companies there are and you've been with early stage companies as well. Give us your top down overview. What's what's happening, how we're doing and what it's like being a company in the middle of all this. So we're certainly an unprecedented times, guys, and I think the challenge for us has been wearing a touch business. When we're in the theater in the cath lab with our physicians. It's where we do our best work. We take a very consultative approach. Where hands on, we work with our physicians to do these procedures, so the challenge for us has been Just to sort of being locked out of that environment, and our physicians are frustrated Also, because obviously Covitz is dominated their environments as well that the good part of this for us is that these procedures for the most part, are elected. Most of the acute stroke center taking place are still being managed, but many of our procedures are elective procedures. And so it's not a question of whether or not the procedure will happen. It's a question of timing, and so we have taken this opportunity to continue to move the ball forward. Educate our physicians and work with our distributor partners to try to make ourselves available Aziz necessary And as you know, the world is sorting itself out. But when disease states occur, they have to be addressed, and it's all being sequenced. Now. The majority of our business is also outside of the U. S. It's in Europe. And and so they have been particularly hard hit early in the cycle, but are responding favorably as well. So it's It's been a challenge all half years. They're running medical device companies. They're all struggling with same Same effort, But we're still continued to offer solutions, and this is one real partnerships and credibility comes into his name is Marvin Slawson. He's the CEO of Inspire MD one of the companies that you guys asked us to interview and you can go to their website. Inspire them. The calm there publicly traded on the stock symbol in SPR. I gotta ask you Marvin about the FDA. I mean, I think we're all hoping the FBI's putting all of their resource is now into keeping us all healthy. But obviously they've had to put a fair amount of triage to use your parlance into Kobe. Right Are people like you being pushed aside because that's a very serious disease that you're there's gotta They have to be able to me. There's still cancer going on. They're still you know, there's still blood diseases going on. There's still heart disease and stroke. How did they? How are they managing in your opinion? Yeah, I think I think remarkably well, and we were actually quite fortunate that we got approval for our FDA trial during the worst part of the pandemic. In fact, we're thrilled to be able to initiate Pretty soon here on an approval from the FDA are clinical trial to enter the U. S market and this happened right in the middle of the coded crisis, And I think from regulatory perspective, they they've managed remarkably well in keeping all companies including ours on track and with breakthrough technologies and pipeline. It's actually worked my favorably for us. It's a lot of work. You know, we initiated the effort with the FDA over a year ago. And so we're thrilled to have an approval to move forward with our our clinical trial to enter the U. S market. Marvin.
