How I Lived My Double Life

"I WanNa talk about my former double life before I quit drinking. My double life consisted of two parts. One was the part that consumed alcohol in the other was the part that was spent recovering from alcohol. And making sure it looked like. I didn't have a drinking problem because this show appeals to so many gray area drinkers. Who Don't have a stereotypical rock bottom. I I know I speak for most listeners. When I say that you get what I'm talking about when I mentioned this double life so we're going to go back to the fall of twenty sixteen right before I quit. Drinking and the typical weekday would consist of me waking up around seven o'clock wildly hung over full of shame and full of guilt and hatred for myself. I usually woke up around three a m each night in a state of sheer panic and then would toss and turn for the rest of the night getting really bad sleep so by seven. I'm Hungover sleep-deprived and dehydrated. I would look in the mirror and feel so disappointed in how I couldn't have stopped it. Just a few drinks the night before. I would then chug water and coffee and drink whatever. My hangover cure was that week. Green juice a Kombucha or some sort of spicy shot. If something unhealthy that costs like thirteen dollars thinking that that might reverse the damage from the night before and after I was awake and a little less dehydrated usually go meet with my trainer and workout. Every minute would be brutal but I needed it because it helped me sweat out the rest of the booze from the night before if it was one of those days where. I just didn't have it in me to work out. I would ask my trainer if we could just go for a walk instead and sometimes if I was still a little drunk from the night before I'd put vodka my water bottle to either help the oncoming hangover or. Continue the buzz throughout the rest of the day now. This was a time when I was running a business with a fulltime staff so I was only working about twenty maybe twenty five hours a week and I answer emails. Do Busy Work. Take phone calls with my partner. Put out small fires at work. Make an appearance. And basically just try to balance shaking off last night's hangover and obsessing over when I could drink next and sometimes I would just be anxious all day. You know planning how I could try and get through the day without drinking but usually there would be a lot more days of planning drinking if I didn't have any more booze in the house. I had to routines was either run to whichever liquor store was next on my list of stores that I'd alternate between because I didn't want to go into one store too often and look like an alcoholic so I'd go pick up my vodka and make small talk with the cashier and make jokes and pretend to be interested in their day because surely someone who stops and talks to a stranger and his polite and makes them laugh. Can't be an alcoholic right or if I wanted wine or if I was in a phase of swearing off liquor like setting those rules for myself. At that time. I'd go to the grocery store and I buy a bottle of wine and a bunch of expensive snacks and cheeses. That made it feel like more of a treat. You know less of a necessity. I'd just one bottle is a form of restriction thinking that if I only had the one bottle in the house then that would stop me at four glasses of wine and expensive cheeses. Were there both as a snack that I could bend John. Wall drunk and also because if the cashier saw this spread that hey they wouldn't think I was an alcoholic. Maybe they think I was just having friends over throughout my day of busy work and counting down to when I could drink again. I'd be down. Rolaids my incessant heartburn. I couldn't drink enough water and without going into too much detail. I'll just say that my gut health was absolute garbage because alcohol eats away your stomach lining so the time I spent in the bathroom doing bathroom. Things was usually something that had to be planned around especially first thing in the morning. Usually I'd have a really heavy lunch to help my hangover and about half the time it would involve a glass of wine or a beer. It is tacos. I figured if I was going out for lunch and having white wine during the day that that was just European. You know alcoholics. Don't drink twelve dollar glasses of greasy outright. I was obsessed with finishing my day by like four or five. Pm A hard stop because that was the time to start drinking again. And I knew that I would be unreliable. Once I started I also slurred my speech when I drink so I didn't like to answer the phone after five because I didn't want anyone to know I was drunk. Once I started drinking which was usually at home alone I would do things. It felt productive while I drink because productive. People can't be alcoholics right and deep clean my house vacuum or I'd send a text to a friend and just say hi and make sure I was making an appearance because alcoholics drink alone and they don't reach out to friends right or I'd makes playlist on spotify of my favorite sad songs and sit for hours listening and obsessing over my past. Usually I take a hot bubble bath and drink in the bathtub. Sometimes I'd watch TV and that would go in two directions either madman or sex in the city so a show that may drinking look fabulous and I'd drink along with it. Thinking see their drinking their faces off to. This is fabulous. It's been a problem or I'd watch intervention or celebrity rehab or something like that and think see. Their problems are so much worse than mind. They're homeless and in jail. My drinking isn't that

Struggling with Digestive Problems?

"I'm Shelby Olsen. I'm a licensed nutritionist. With a bachelor's degree in exercise science and a masters degree in clinical nutrition and I understand that education is really important when it comes to talking about human health and nutrition. And of course I learned lots of things about nutrition and health while I was completing my master's degree. But to be honest with you as a practicing nutritionist with nutritional weight and wellness. I feel like I've learned even more so much of that. Clinical experience working with clients helping people feel their best. You know they always talk about education's great you learn lots of good things but when you're out in the real world working with people that's really where you've got to use those problem solving skills you really have to understand what is going to make a big difference here for people. We don't WanNa talk about theories we WANNA talk about action step so theresa and I are tasked this morning with talking about how those of you can change your digestive health so our topic is all things related to digestion have digestive problems. You certainly are not alone. According to a survey in the Journal of gastroenterology seventy four percent of the US population has some type of Gi symptoms and Gi gastrointestinal symptoms. That could be things like heartburn or acid reflux that could be abdominal pain or nausea. And of course that could be bloating gas diarrhea and constipation. You Know Teresa when I was in my first year of my master's program one of my professors said to me. You know if you're not comfortable asking people about their poop you're in the wrong profession. Isn't that or digestive. Problems are a common reason. People make an appointment with a traditional or a Dietitian. You know three so. I know you're busy in the office. Always but I'm sure you have clients that are in their eighties or ninety S. I'm sure you work with kids as well. You know we see that people can have digestive problems regardless of their age in fact we were talking before we came in that. There's a nutrition educator with nutritional weight and wellness who is a physical therapist and specializes in helping kids with chronic and very severe constipation. And I was KINDA SURPRISED TO LEARN. That parents are flying in all over to get help with constipation. Whether it's some some nutrition help some physical therapy help as you might imagine. Childhood Constipation is not very enjoyable for parents. Oh you feel your paying exactly so when we think about constipation. Oftentimes we're thinking about processed foods. Excess sugar were really looking at. What could be that foundation of creating that slow digestion or creating more of that painful Experience so another culprit that I think is often linked to constipation in children cheese sticks. And we're going to talk a little bit more about foods that are more challenging for the digestive tract but cheeses often constipated for both children and adults so think about the foods. Kids eat MAC and cheese pizza. Maybe snacking on crackers and cheese or those sorts of things they can be really challenging for those little belly's to digest. Yeah those are the foods that I think are very common. That kids are eating right now. Just because they're they're easy to eat first of all. I mean as far as just the mechanics of eating them right and then Yeah I mean. They're very convenient for parents to give their kids to right so parents. If you're listening you do have a child or you. As an adult or struggling with constipation or other tummy. Troubles are tasked today. Theresa and I are really hoping to address what helps with good gut health. And what may happen? If you don't have that right balance in the intestinal tract now it may surprise some of you listening to learn that your gut is even connected to your brain. We talked about that gut brain connection now. You heard her voice Joining me in studio this morning is our co host Teresa Wagner. I would say First and foremost she's a mom that's where she's spending a lot of time but we also get her a few days a week to in our offices and of course on the show so theresa you're a registered and licensed Dietitian. And how long have you been practicing? I think I've been a nutritional weight and wellness for five years. Maybe it's six. Yeah this they time flies when you're having fun so you must be fine now at one time. Teresa you and I were talking a little bit more as Nutritionists Dietitians. We experienced some of these things too. And I think you've kind of shared you've had some day just of issues before so hopefully you can kind of bring us into some of that discussion. Yes and maybe before we discuss that and before we discuss heartburn diarrhea constipation. Ibs I want to talk about how your immune function is connected to your Gut Hill. So not just the brain but also the immune system. Yes everything's connected. Isn't it approximately seventy percent of your immune system is found in your digestive system and because of Cova Nineteen? Many of us are trying to do everything. Possible in order to have good immune function Have you thought about your gut health and how it affects your immune function and I know shelby you have for the listeners out there have you made that connection. It's interesting to realize that throughout your life your immune system has been shaped by the communities of bacteria that reside in an on your body. How you were fed as a baby is a very important part digestive health And it's important for your current digestive function so how you were fed as an infant affects your current health right. Breast Milk provided for those of you who are breastfed and abundance of beneficial bacteria. And if you were breastfed you may have missed out on some of the those most protective bacteria from your intestinal track And now as a mom when I hear that I know of so many moms who tried breastfeeding and forever. Whatever reason it just didn't work out so this isn't necessarily meant to be a guilt trip but what it is or it's not at all meant to be a guilt trip but What it is just really good information for you to know for your children or you're having digestive issues Or the prevention of digestive issues or chronic illnesses right and there's also really good information for us as adults who maybe when we were being raised or when our parents were feeding us that it wasn't maybe breastfeeding wasn't in vogue at the time or our mothers weren't able to breastfeed at that time just as good information to have. I agree and I often tell people you know. I know I wasn't breastfed as a baby. And when I talked to some of my clients and ask them. It's it's an interesting reaction they while I had never thought of that. Does that really affect my immune system or you know that sort of stuff now and I tell them well you know. We can't travel back in the past and we're not going to blame and shame mom for what she didn't know at the time but that also gives like for me personally. That gave me really good reason to focus on reestablishing that good bacteria. Because I know I wasn't exposed to that beneficial bacteria through breast milk. Yeah good information right Some babies who are breastfed have a higher proportion of that beneficial bacteria that protects them against pathogens Certain diseases are often linked to an unhealthy. Good which may not contain adequate levels of that beneficial bacteria that bacteria. That's crucial for good digestion. Which we're talking about today exactly and in fact Teresa when we're talking about bacteria we're starting to see the bad bacteria has been connected as one of the primary causes of ulcers specifically those peptic ulcers. So yes I said bad. Bacteria causes ulcers not stress and not spicy foods for one hundred years or more Doctors and researchers believed that ulcers were related to stress and spicy foods. You know but it wasn't until two thousand five that Nobel Prize winners in medicine Dr Barry Marshall and Dr Robin Warren made that connection between ulcers and a type of bacteria called heliotrope actor Pylori. Sometimes you guys have heard of that as H. Pylori

"Hi guys. Welcome to recovery happy hour where we talk about life beyond the bottle and what happens after we stopped drinking. I'm your host Tricia and frankly wearing pants is overrated. Thank you for joining me today. Today's episode is the final one in a series leading up to mother's Day where I'm sharing stories of MOMS. Who QUIT DRINKING IN? Because we're still in a time of quarantine. There's an added pressure on. You moms out there. Who already do it all right and suddenly now? Your kids are home from school. You're working from home. There's no physically escaping it. There know movies to go see no malls to go shop at no restaurants to go out to play needs to send your kids to now is an unprecedented time when the pressure to really do it all is really in your face and it's not just that invisible pressure that you put on yourself any more you know comparing your life to other moms by your instagram feeds. More importantly a lot of you moms are struggling and I know this because you email me you message me. You see the alcohol memes. You're stressed and I get it if you're struggling with your drinking right now. Being quarantined with it. It's a lot you know. It's it's a big indicator may be higher really feeling about your drinking especially if you're listening to this. Podcast saw posted something on instagram. The other day for the podcast which is at recovery. Happy Hour. If you're not already following it but I went back to my personal instagram account. I scrolled through the last part of two thousand sixteen which is right before I got sober when my drinking was at its worst and I want to mention that I also just gone through a surprise divorce so I was acting away. That wasn't super typical but I was always a heavy drinker so the presence of alcohol was typical and as I scrolled through. I saw every other photo featuring a shot of a cocktail or glass of wine or fucking frozen Rosa. Lots of boomerangs meets hosting my glass. The friend anything silly to make it look like I was having fun while drinking but the focus was always make it look like my life. Was you not to micromanage the image of my life leading up to the week before I quit drinking I was on a trip and I posted selfies with strangers. Met In bars. People's whose names I I don't know you know more photos of drinks and oversight glasses photos of breakfast tacos with a beer to help my hangover from the night before you know make it look great make it look great make it look great but I was struggling. I was miserable. I was filled with anxiety. Twenty four hours a day. I had nonstop heartburn. That was the worst. I was bloated dehydrated cranky and making sure that I was wearing eight hundred dollar designer shoes throughout it. All you know make it look fabulous make it look great make it. Look Fun. Make sure it doesn't look like you're an alcoholic. I was spending so much of my life. Crafting an image of happiness. That wasn't actually living my own life. I was throwing away days wasting so much time. And Still. So afraid of what? I might miss out on if I quit drinking alcohol and then when I scroll back to about a month ago I saw photos of You know a cheese plate that we ate for dinner while Manfred and I went on vacation with his family and played cards and skied all day. You know I saw funny photo of my dog screen shot of my Fedex tracking number for an auto harp that I've taught myself how to play in quarantine a picture of the mountains. A New Tattoo cute cartoon about washing your hands during Cova nineteen. These are the photos of my current life that I'm actually living one hundred percent of the time this is the real deal and I'm present for all of it and I know that you moms out. There have especially hard when you have the pressure of raising a small human and thinking you have to get it all right and have the pictures to prove it but the real stuff is on the cutting room floor. We get so fixated on what our lives. Look like that. We stop living our actual lives. You hide the fact that you're drinking in secret. You continue to drink at home after you've had a Mimosa at a play date you hide. You're driving drunk. You know that you're drinking because you're cranky for being hung over all day and then the cycle repeats itself and that is when we've lost ourselves. The few weeks of episodes have been very different from each other with very different levels of consequences. But the thing that is the same in each story is that no one could get help until they got honest and told somebody that they were struggling. They had to admit that they couldn't keep up the lie anymore. Despite what societal norms are telling you about alcohol at Mother's Day you do not have to order champagne at a soccer game. It's not normal to have wine in your Yeti or in your Coffee Cup. These are not things that you just need to accept. You know without questioning them if you're not okay with these things or if they're harder to say no to lately you're not alone lots of MOMS are struggling and there is a life on the other side. It's not at all what you might think it is either. It's better and it looks great on social media too but that also stops mattering as much

Codependency and the Nervous System, and Managing Stress in a Pandemic with Victoria Albina

"Love to get started by talking about your story. So you talk about how you coach. Women raised by people who are codependent or alcoholic or both to stop being anxious exhausted and overwhelmed so you can cultivate better relationships with yourselves with other people and then also you have this other like cool section of your work. Were this intersection of like you. Also help people here. They're adrenals and justify issues with functional medicine. So how did you get to that place? Yeah so my story starts like so many of the stories of the folks who do the work. We do With a lot of sickness so I grew up with wake. Bowel Syndrome heartburn. So bad I couldn't sleep lying down for years and I really. I was very very sick. All of that led to my adrenals. Doing what adrenals should do when you're so sick which is just kind of giving up the ghost a little bit you know and it was really really really challenging to find help. I went to a hundred thousand different. Doctors had every test imaginable including like swallowing radioactive liquids. And getting all these extra. It was bananas and the Best Advice I ever got was good luck right like pretty much. There's nothing we can do for you in Western medicine and you're on your own Kitto and that didn't Jive for my super science-based nerdy self right. I knew that another way was possible and I realized I had to find it on my own so I started started studying herbs. I started studying supplements holistic medicine. Public Health I eventually went to. Ucsf the University of California San Francisco and became a nurse Practitioner I really wanted to understand the science behind it all and why couldn't stop having these terrible symptoms and through that work. I started practicing medicine. I worked in primary care for years and I realized that again the drug based one pill one ill western system couldn't help with the deeper underlying stuff and so my science brain said well more advanced. Testing is the way to go so. I trained in that I stayed with Chris Presser. I learned how to do all the advanced functional medicine route. 'cause work all of that helped me and helped my patients to heal things like small intestine. Bacterial overgrowth CBO library. Which is the same thing in the large intestine and I would get better and it symptoms would relapse and then I'd get better and I'd take a fistful more supplements and symptoms would relapse and what I came to understand. Over the last decade was that while the physiology is incredibly important. Right I had parasites. I beg overgrowth. They needed to be dealt with appropriately. Murdered I couldn't get back into real health really feeling well until I learned to attend my nervous system. Because the autonomic nervous system is the thing that rules Gosh everything are digestion are thyroid. Our Dreams are hormone balance and by not looking at my trauma my own co-dependency my own struggles with self doubt perfectionism et CETERA. I was in fact keeping myself ill without realizing it right because I was stuck in all these coping strategies which were gifts when I was a kid but as an adult no longer served me so I recognize that I needed to bring all this work deeply into my practice. I trained as a life coach with a life coach school I trained in somatic modalities and here. I am helping. Women folks assigned female at birth when folks who identify as women to shake free from codependency and all those old patterns that keep our physiology stock so we can heal in deep ways. It's so amazing. And so interesting too. Because I feel there aren't enough. People that are talking about the interconnectedness between between our psychology and physiology right and especially in the nutrition and the functional medicine world. We tend to blame everything on food or we tend to say unfortunately a lot of what's tended to happen not necessarily by experienced practitioners. But let's say influencers out there is like oh you have this condition like let's slap this food on it or like let's slap this supplement on it and then it'll fix everything just remove this one food and then it'll fix everything and like you mentioned you can do all the testing you can do all the elimination diets. You can do all the work and stuff that you would assume but then your symptoms kept coming back and it was because of this psychological side that you finally realize absolutely yeah and the deep ways like you said that psyche and Soma are one your mind and body are one and your spirit is a huge part of this as well spirit soul whatever word you use your vital life force energy needs to be. Gosh in your consciousness right. Yeah and I think. We're getting a big wakeup call right now to attend to ourselves in all of these ways. Yeah definitely and we so. If you're listening to this now we're going to be talking about the how to manage the stress response that we're all experiencing due to. Cova a little bit later. But first I want to talk about a word that you had mentioned and I had mentioned but I haven't actually dove into on the podcast yet so I'd love if you could talk a little bit more about codependency and what that is. Yeah so codependency is when you chronically. Put yourself last in order to gain the love. Validation Acceptance Care approve all of other people so any put other people's thoughts feelings actions wellness ahead of your own because somewhere deep inside. You believe that this will make you worthy of love. It will make you a valid person and usually one has been doing this since childhood and so it becomes a part of your identity right. Oh I'm just a caretaker. Oh I just I love doing things for others which to be clear. There's nothing wrong with taking care of other people. I just want to support folks in taking care of themselves. I I believe in the power of collective healing I believe in the power of Inter dependence. But that doesn't mean putting yourself last.

Coronavirus pandemic expected to slow transition to clean energy

"Covert. Nineteen has shuddered. Major sectors of the global economy and renewable energy projects are not immune solar and wind. Projects are on hold. What does that mean for the green economy and for progress on Climate Change Dan Marino with inside? Climate News has been writing about that. Hi Dan how big picture I how renewable energy projects being impacted by cove. Nineteen the big picture. His that the supply side seems to be holding up. Okay meaning that projects can get the parts they need. But the demand side is in big trouble that refers to just the companies that are developing projects. They are running into financial difficulties. They're running into difficulties. Just getting workers to be able to do work. Let's talk about solar projects for a minute. it's been growing rapidly. We know over the last decade plus and the latest forecasts suggest maybe a reduction in new solar projects in twenty twenty. One was the last time that happened. This was supposed to be a big big year. For solar power now we can see global solar installations. Actually down this year. And there's really no precedent for that. What about wind is that the same picture went our any? Us and globally is probably going to be at a record high this year but the key point there relative to corona virus is that it's not going to be as big as we thought it would be a couple months ago. You wrote about offshore wind projects. Why are they in jeopardy? The US offshore wind dentistry barely exists. There's one project that has been completed in this country. It's a small one in Rhode Island in. There are a whole bunch of big projects in various phases of development or at this park with his whole new. Renewable energy industry is kind of coming into being and the delays and being able to have people work on projects is at a terrible time. Offshore wind is a really important part of the growth of renewable energy in the US because it allows the supply of renewable energy really close to east coast population centers. In if there's this big delay while this industry is still in its infancy anti us. It's something that is causing. A tremendous amount of heartburn throughout the industry. And what will you be for in the next few months? One of the big things to watch going forward is discussions about extending tax credits for noble energy projects that were scheduled either phase out or ramp down a bit at the end of this year. So much of what is putting pressure on them to do projects in twenty twenty. Is that the projects get more expensive after that because of tax credit implications. What does this mean for meeting Global Climate Change Goals going forward? There's a real danger that this sudden drop in emissions that we're seeing right now because this economy is just at a standstill will be followed by a rebound and a surge in admissions and it almost becomes lost time in terms of meeting emissions goals He also are taking a lot of attention away from political leaders who were otherwise going to spend a lot of time this year talking about their plans for reducing emissions We just had the announcement that a a U N conference that was critical for setting. Those plants is being delayed. The big issue here is that we're all focusing on this very immediate crisis while there's this kind of more slowly moving crisis of climate change that is kind of simultaneously still very much. There hasn't gone away. Dan guerrino with inside climate news. Thanks for sharing your insight on climate cass. Today thank you very much.

What's the Deal with Digestive Issues and Anxiety?

What's the Deal with Digestive Issues and Anxiety?

"You know that you have anywhere from five to twenty five pounds of waste throughout your digestive tract gross? Yeah is that true? Absolutely absolutely I knew secretly. I weighed one hundred twenty pounds. Why are you laughing? That's a walk like in me like like time at one time so now imagine how much easier it would be to run away from a bear if you could instantly drop a bunch of that way got it. I'll look at you. You're so clever right at you. That's going to stick with me you. That's an and I kind of I think to when I'm working out and doing squats lunges with a ten pound weight versus without the way it is significantly new fart. Oh Geez no. But that's more exciting line of thought but now it's just a lot easier without the ten point eight. It's like as soon as I drop that weight like. Oh this is effortless like I could do lots forever or lunges forever and so obviously it makes sense to want to kind of our body to clear itself out if we need to run if we need to run dropping up to twenty five pounds is GonNa make us a bit faster when we're that much later. Yeah I remember when Panicked like was a was brand new and and sort of bewildering for me This is this is pre you by the way and understanding the stress response understanding that your body totally evacuates waste understanding why you sweat. Karen Young talked about this recently. We've talked about it in the stress response before but understand that. Your eyes dilate. I think right you're hearing something happens to the hearing your all the blood rushes to your internal organs away from your arms which they get cold and tingling understanding. Why your body has evolved to do this? An- Wi- is fascinating to me. Love that stuff. Yes so I mean. When we're in the midst of a threat you know fighting or running for our lives the only essential functions. We really need in. The face of that. Threat is breathing circulation and use of our big muscles so when we enter that fight or flight mode our body decreases blood flow Terai digestive tract and without that blood supply digestion. Just doesn't happen and so that's why we feel that nausea or that you know very significant urge to go to the bathroom. You know it. Tell me why this would happen. So I if I I feel like I just had a nervous life growing up so I always had that sort of like. Ibs Ish life. This is so gross. I'm never going to get married. That's you know that's fine. I'm uncomfortable but guys sorry or or ladies. I'm like one step away like one going out to the barons weapons anyway. I I always had that sort of like until I started. Dealing with anxiety look sorta how upset like permanently upset stomach anyway but something weird would happen to me when like after a panic attack like after it all like I would have like a rock in my stomach like it seemed like it. Yeah sure feeling like stomach yeah. Nothing would like evacuate. It just felt like I couldn't or or maybe this isn't related at all but the sensation of like you can't swallow as one thing you know like a lot of people have that but if I was eating something and then got nervous it felt like sat my chest like that's the muscles and Chen for sure this tension Chen and sometimes it can be if it feels like something is just sitting there Especially if it's like in your stomach can also be indigestion like your body's not digesting the food and I can feel a little bit like a rock lead like stomach and you may not get noticed like like it never really worried me. Maybe it's I always felt like us like some gross but it wasn't a sticky thing for me. I know this really freaks people out though. I mean a metaphor which is kind of that. Fear of throwing up is yeah. That was how that was one of the ways my anxiety first manifested when I was younger and when I'm stressed the first thing the first place it shows up is my gut for some people. It's muscle tension headaches fluttering. That stuff is kind of down the line for me. The first thing my body's first. Hey you know. I'm Kinda stressed and overworked and burnt-out and slow down. Its I Q. Is that indigestion? Heartburn them bit just unsettled. Nece and in my stomach's now that you say that. Whenever I'm like stressed to the Max I do get some especially night like heartburn. But it's on me the whole thing with anxiety like it's all of US experienced probably similar. Things is just what we what gets sticky right. It's kind of what we misinterpret so you. It's like digestive. Upset is just digestive upset for like that. It's just sort of like well. Yeah for me. It dumps towards. Oh my gosh. If anyone heard I think it was episode thirty to remember when like one of my it would jump to all my gosh. What if I put my pants like what is i? Put My Hanson. What if I throw up front of everybody like it wasn't just digestive upset? Okay so sorry. In the moment it feels like absolutely mortified in the worst thing. That can happen and unacceptable. Like now when I look back it is. It's funny and it makes people laugh and that's okay I'm cool. I'm cool with

The Best Digestive Enzyme Supplements

"Today I'm going to be talking about the best digestive enzyme supplements. These are the ones I use in my practice. That just enzymes are a vital part of my practice because most of my patients have gut issues that are connected to their thyroid issues and their auto immune issues and usually almost all of their health issues. So these are really important To healing your gut and getting well. So why don't we jump in and start with Betaine? Hcl's there's three supplements of wind cover today. The first is pertain. Hcl and this is used to optimize low stomach acid and so a lot of the symptoms of low stomach acid or things like acid reflux. And that might be contrary to what you understand. Or what you've heard. But GIRD OR GASTRO ESOPHAGEAL REFLUX DISEASE. Where the patient feels heartburn? That's actually usually due to not enough stomach acid. So that's mainly related to the pilots fainter. Which is the muscle between the ESOPHAGUS and the stomach is dilating for some reason and food or stomach. Acid is regurgitating up into the office and causing the burning. So I'm not going to go into a lot of detail of the causes of of acid reflux but one of them is usually low stomach acid So that's one of the first signs that the patient needs help with their acid levels also a lot of gas bloating nausea after eating those are usually good signs of low stomach acid. So as you get older your stomach acid decreases. That's just naturally the case for everybody but also someone's very sick if they're eating a highly processed diet or highly acidic diet if they're using antacids if they have a lot of stress stress shuts down stomach acid production that usually impairs your hydrochloric acid levels. Also if you're deficient in zinc that can cause low stomach acid and the FBI vitamins. And if you're hypothyroid you're going to have low stomach acid levels so we can connect low stomach acid levels and that's also called HYPO core history. A- that's actually been associated with bacterial overgrowth so CBO small intestinal bacterial overgrowth any infections in the gut. Whether it's bacteria fungi yeast viruses parasites. Any kind of infection can be due to low stomach acid levels so if you got a stool analysis and we find multiple organisms of all different types whether it's bacteria fungi parasite virus. That's a strong indicator that you're acid levels are low also if you're low and vitamins. B Twelve B six folate acid and the minerals. Things like iron magnesium calcium and zinc. Those can also be strong indicators of hypochondria so your stomach has cells called parietal cells and these respond to food in the stomach and they make hydrochloric acid. So sometimes we'll run a parietal cell antibody blood test because you can actually make antibodies against those cells. So it's an auto immune condition where the patient has hypo core history and then hydrochloric acid at it activates. The conversion of PEP CINNA JEN TO PEP ZAIN. And these are enzymes that are required to digest protein so again if the patient appears deficient in. Protein. But they're eating a lot of protein than they may have low stomach acid levels so very important for protein digestion nutrient breakdown and absorption. The acid is really what cleaves the proteins that are connected to different vitamins and minerals like B. Twelve or breaking apart calcium from carbonates. If you're taking a calcium carbonate supplemented the acid to cleave that connections you can absorb it so things like a leaky gut and inflammation these are also connected to Hypo Chorea. Because you need the food that you eat to be broken down properly. Otherwise you'll have large molecules. Large peptides from the protein could potentially leak into the bloodstream and cause inflammation one. Study not going to get into a lot of detail in the study but it was. It was an interesting study looking at hydrochloric acid levels and food sensitivities so twenty five percent of patients taking acid lowering drugs. They had an increased allergic response to their foods. So that's an ide- mediated response. Which is a true allergy. And so there was an increase response of this can be a histamine an increase histamine response to the foods that you eat. If you're acid levels are low and these authors specifically state that you can reduce food allergenicity up to ten thousand fold just by enhancing stomach acid levels. You can imagine if a patient's stomach acid levels are even moderately low. They're going to have more food sensitivities than more food sensitivities. You have the more inflammation you create. When you eat the more you caused this biosimilars and break down the Gut. So this is a real cornerstone of of improving anyone's health if they have a lot of food sensitivities or gut issues and so this adds important like I said. It's your first line of defense against these foodborne pathogens that people are constantly consuming and then stomach acid also keeps healy co b-actor. Pylori in check the H PYLORI. And that's a problematic bacteria and some people it's the source of stomach ulcers and there's also connections with H. Pylori and Conditions Lake Hashi motos disease and graves disease the connection with Hashi Moses weaker than it is with graves but a pretty strong connection with graves disease and H. Pylori. I mean it's also connected to cardiovascular disease and brain inflammation and all kinds of issues so One of the things to know is that as H. Pylori grows it's kind of a a self-defeating mechanism so if you have low stomach acid levels h. Pylori grows but then H. Pylori suppresses stomach acid production so it can be difficult to overcome that if those levels are low so as far as the digestive track os you want a highly acidic stomach and then as you get further down the intestine. Things become more alkaline. Actually so if you have low stomach acid levels you'll start to see an overpopulation of bacteria and fungi in the upper and you could overcome that by increasing acid levels. So if you see this BIOS or despotic symptoms. The key might not be probiotics. Although it usually is very helpful you can go more upstream than and improve your acid levels so just a few technical notes about detain HCL. It's actually seventy six percent between and only about twenty four percent hydrochloric acid so the tain though is it's an important part in the acids function so between it's also known as trimethyl lysine and it's found in foods like beets and a few other

So could you tell us a little bit about why? It's such a big topic. Why is it so important yet? Gut Health is a new topic. Lots of new studies going on with gut health. A lot of people think well got health is digestive health. But it's so much more than that got. Health can also affect your immunity. It can affect heart health. It can affect brain health. You can affect weight management. There's so many things that it touches that it's very important for us and that's crazy that just this one little piece of our body and a piece of our digestive system can affect so many different things and caused us a lot of unhappiness. If we don't take care of it absolutely absolutely. Yeah I mean we we wanna take our digestive cells. We WanNa make sure that everything's moving in the right direction but then like you said it affects so many other things and we can get into that a little bit more but it it affects our brain so much and in effects are hard and affects so many things that function within our other systems. That it's very important So can you tell us a few signs what we can look forward to? Tel Afar is unhappy. Yeah I I'll first off. I want to just say if we feel like something's not right. You should go talk to a doctor that there's so many things that could be wrong. And so many things. That might not be wrong that I hate for people to self diagnose and then find out that they did it wrong so if you if you feel like something's off please go see a doctor but there's a lot of different things I mean. Obviously you can feel gas and you can feel bloating and you can feel abdominal pains but but there are other things like If you feel like they're pains that aren't going away or if their symptoms that aren't going away definitely go see a doctor absolutely and I think that's great advice so in the everyday support of our gut. You know when things may be aren't wrong. We're just trying to give it extra support to make sure that things continue to go along normally. What are some products? That Tara has that we can utilize. Those here has a lot of digestive health products in and they've been proven over the years for a lot of different people for a lot of different reasons and so first off. We have our digests in blend which is a blend of a lot of different essential oils all of which have benefits ended of themselves for digestive health. And so that's a great one to start with and we've also put that in a soft Gel for convenience sake so obviously if you if you feel like something's off in your stomach or you feel like hey I'm going over to at Matty's for for her and it's GonNa be a huge dinner. Hey let's take some digestion along with us just in case and so you have your soft gels For Convenience Sake as well we also have terrorism which is a digestive enzyme. Our stomach has to break down food and our intestines have to break down food. And there's all different kinds of foods. Most of US HAVE ENOUGH DIGEST. Sign digestive enzymes to be able to help us with this but some of US need a little extra help sometimes and so there are enzymes to break down proteins and breakdown fats. Enzymes to break down carbohydrates. And so you need all of those to help with an digestive insights has all those all in one package. So it's great if you again if you're planning on a heavy meal or a heavy protein meal or something like that it's nice to hasn't digestive enzymes with you. Which is our terrorism. We also have the digest tab which has the digestive Or the digestion. Blend in calcium carbonate tablet. Just very handy as well. Because the calcium carbonate tablet in and of itself has very powerful anti and acid properties and then with the digestion. In with it you got double the double the power so it's a great product. It's one of my favorites. We also have ginger tab or ginger drop that we just launched earlier this year. Everybody knows that ginger is great for to help with an upset stomach or or sour stomach. And so these tastes really great for those of you who love Ginger. And it's in a really tasty drop and so they're really handy as well but we launched something new last year which is a Heiferman Soft Gel. And there's a lot of studies on peppermint and how it can help with lower intestinal issues and so it's great to have this an enteric coated soft Gel. Because you need it to survive the stomach it needs. It needs to get through the stomach and get into the intestines where it can do. Its its job. And so that's why it's enteric coated. And here's what peppermint soft. Gel does the peppermint oil helps to relax the smooth muscles in in the lining of the intestines in the stomach. But you don't want that to happen to up to high because if it happens in your asaf against or in your in your throat then gas gets too high. And that's where you get heartburn and so when its enteric coated those gases are released and so it keeps them down lowered. They can't do any damage. Oh that's why enteric coated is so important for peppermint Parent Soft Gel. And that's and that's why that's such a great product. I want more people to know about that because it's a great product with a lot of science behind it. There's so many different studies. There's even some that have been done on children by what I want people to be careful when they give it to their children but there are some studies that show that peppermint oil can help with children and lower intestinal issues. So if you haven't checked that out check off Joe hipp it's online. It's for everyone to download and take a look at but all the cities that's great and so people can go online. They can look at these studies for themselves and dig into the research behind that if that's something they're interested in absolutely that's so great pepper. Thank you so much for explaining to us a little bit more about how the gut works. Why it's important and these incredible products that don't tear has available for people to help support their gut. You're welcome.

Illusion

"What is the cause of suffering? Here it is in one word illusion the cause of oil suffering his illusion or unreality so. Let's discuss this one point. First thing I want to say is that pain. Physical pain is not the same as suffering. Physical pain is actually a very important experience. It tells us that something is wrong. So if you didn't have been in your doors and you had nowhere her seek medical advice. If you didn't have indigestion you'd never corrects the cause of the indigestion if you never experienced heartburn. You'd never know that you have acid reflux and that needs to be corrected. In fact people lose the ability to experience pain as a result of neuropathy for example. Neuropathy on your rightous which happens with diabetes for example or other diseases neurological diseases. People who do not experience physical pain their limbs atrophy. They lose their toys and they get burns and they get all kinds of problems and then they begin to suffer so pain is not the same as suffering. Pain is a useful symptom to remind you that something is wrong. And you need to correct that you need to go back to self-regulation what is suffering suffering is being that we hold onto so a pain like resentment like like anger like hostelry like the desire to get even that causes long-term suffering and then there's another kind of existential suffering the feeling of old age the fear of infirmity the fear of death. This is what spirituality addresses it addresses suffering and the pain that we hold onto the fears that we hold onto. I'm reminded of a BOOM BY RUMI. Way says the way to not suffer from the fire is to go through the fire. The only way out of the fire is going through it. And how do you go through it by getting in touch with your own self and you get in touch with their own? Self that becomes your internal reference point then you realize that it takes force of mind to create. Suffering suffering is a blend of belief and perception that the person thinks he or she has no control over. Well you have control over your suffering because you have control over over writing the illusion of the separate off the secret cause of all suffering is unreality itself the illusion that you are a physical body with the mind and that you are in this theater of space diamond causality which we call the world. None of that is true. It might be a human construct but your soul your spirit having an experience and you can choose the expenses you want

The Ins and Outs of Elimination Diets

Living Healthy Podcast

The Ins and Outs of Elimination Diets

"I question let's keep it super basic as always elimination diets. What is the idea you behind doing an elimination diet? I'm going to say on the word. Elimination it's not to help you go to the bathroom. It's not that kind of elimination. So ideally the process of eliminating foods is I have susie. It's done with the supervision and and assistance of a medical professional and that it's safe and reliable so you determine food allergies and intolerances. That's the idea. I know that many the people on their own just temporarily scrapping what the down to the bare minimum and trying to eat clean and detox. Or what have you so. The basic basic premise is that by removing potentially offending foods and beverages and spices. Whatever you put in your mouth you're starting with a clean slate? And then the handful full of items that are safe you can begin adding them back or a type of food and for a few days see which items prompt the symptoms to reappear. Okay is who would benefit from this kind of diet is it. I would everyone. Are there people that don't need to worry about this diet. Surprised in in in looking at it that it's not just food allergies which I think we're going to get into but also there's so. There are different names of specific elimination diets. Hunch the autoimmune protocol and the Gut Psychology Syndrome Diet and the specific carbohydrate diet so I think it would be very targeted. has to whom it's going to apply to such as so the autoimmune protocol well that sounds more applicable to someone say with rheumatoid arthritis someone with that kind of condition that they have to manage on the other hand. There's the whole thirty that we've mentioned in a previous podcast. And you can kind kind of think of that challenges and Elimination Diet too. Because you're committing describing things for a period of time and it it does have a reintroduction face to kind of understand this little. Is this kind of what obviously to young children now. Is this kind of what we do with young children where you start introducing them to foods and you kind of you're like okay. I'm GonNa give him something with peanut butter and you're going to see how they do for a week or two hit the nail on the head. Zakariya weaning them off from breast milk or formula. It's what you do with solid food. It's like okay. We'll try rice. Cereal do that for a few days. Canal will try a little bit of green beans. Try that for the weekend and you just do like one in food at a time and make sure that they don't have an allergic response so it's very similar to solid food interaction with interesting and just a little tidbit it For Gloria out there. Today you tried mango for the first time. So and you get okay. Well how how long do you typically have to wait to gauge to see whether you're intolerant allergic is a pretty quickly or is it like you introduce a food and then you kinda gotta wait. Wait a couple of weeks before you move onto the next one. Well I thought it would be days or weeks and everybody's system and sensitivity is different so I asked a colleague and Jenny ask you a balanced alands fitness and nutrition in Georgia. said that client should feel better in ten days if they've eliminated the right foods so she runs blood. Work to create a customized plan. And so that way you know she can see exactly that they're getting the right items out and usually she says about fifty percent improvement in symptoms in the first two weeks which is kind of market? You know if you're gonNA commit to doing something he says and it Kinda go you want to be able to see that benefit right. Okay so I feel like for kids. It's easy to you know. Bricks slowly introducing them to new things that they've never had before but to eliminate something from our diet and then slowly reintroduce it. How is that on our digest? Is this some kind of a different game. Plan there so I would say that overall on the contrary most elimination diets. It's our intended to relieve gastrointestinal issues. Bloating gas so that's what the gap diet that Gut Psychology Syndrome Diet. Why it would do? But I've also heard from some people that say initially you know if they're doing the extreme elimination phase that they can get stomach aches from their extreme hunger so you could get a short term negative and then if you're eliminating certain foods you could get constipated just as as if you're replacing other foods with something you don't normally eat so much of raw vegetables runs. It's an adjustment period. And so what are some of the typical reasons people we kind of. You mentioned some used the elimination diet. I mean I've definitely heard allergies. That's one of the big ones is. You're trying to find out what you're tolerant too. But I've also heard. Is it like pain like maybe. That's another reason to to inflammation so again. Another one of my colleagues so Tammy Broderick of have healthy feet nutrition in southern California told me that elimination diets helped break. The cycle of chronic inflammation. So Gluten. Dairy sugar could could be the top three food offenders and gluten in particular is now being tied to like leaky Gut Syndrome but mother inflammatory suits could be soy and corn oil. Processed meats needs fried food. Alcohol Sodas and I didn't know that because I know in Allergies Brittany. The big eight are the common ones like egg and tree nuts peanuts peanuts wheat. Soy Milk fish shellfish those are the ones that typically have to be on a label knowledge statement. But they're all these other things can affect planet pain and inflammation as well. This time of day it would really help somebody who has maybe say like Crohn's disease or is like has it is or just finding out and finding a way to Yeah I. I won't even touch those because I'm not the digestive an expert so I'm going to Pass on that one but I know there's a lot of autoimmune Kinda in that realm exactly so it helps it helps you find what works best for your body and it's kind of like just to reiterate what I think we mentioned before but like this is meant to. You're not eliminating like one food food at a time and seeing if you feel better not eating it you're laminating several and then reintroducing them and seeing how you react once you reintroduce them catch food reintroduced is basically a challenge and so you're looking to see those adverse reactions in a few days which is where the commitment that consistency and logging in a diary you know comes in so you can't do this half half way you can't do it willy. Nilly or while you're trying to travel and have all these you you have to pay attention and so it's like. Oh well if I I feel heartburn or I feel this you know that it wasn't from stress or it wasn't from You know crazy sleep that you had or whatever so you're just really paying attention to each food and your good and your system and your anything your skin Dan.

When Insurance Won't Cover Drugs, Americans Make 'Tough Choices' About Their Health

When Insurance Won't Cover Drugs, Americans Make 'Tough Choices' About Their Health

"What happens when insurance companies deny coverage for medications? It doesn't just force people to pay for drugs themselves. A survey finds that for almost half of Americans went. When Insurance Denies Payment? They do not get the drugs at all. The poll comes from NPR. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard T H Chan School of Public Public Health. NPR's Patty name reports Sahlin. REDUC- is seventy eight on a fixed income. She has severe acid reflux. I have to eat very small all meals and when I eat sometimes it feels like everything's stuck in my chest and I get really bad pain. And I have to throw up reduces retired on medicare she also pays for supplemental insurance policy to cover the cost of drugs but it will only pay for the generic version of her heartburn medication. Her her doctor prescribed the brand name. She says the generic version just doesn't work for her. No it's not as effective now. Definitely not she can't afford the brand name so now she has extremely painful episodes of acid reflux about three times a month. Our poll shows that like Ridolfi. The vast majority pretty of Americans have health insurance that includes prescription drug coverage but one in three say that in the past year insurance. Didn't cover the cost of medication and for themselves or their household members Robert Blend in with the Harvard Chan School directed our poll.
