But I got a lot of people from being on his podcast and people would say there I'm taking five thousand or ten thousand years and you know of course I'm looking at Lamma. It's not working. But I'm taking over ten thousand I said, it's not working MO- supplements don't work. And some of them are actually very toxic to you and there's reasons for that too. I finally did the percentages on it with the help of my count it because I'm not good at percentages good Lord I skipped that class in high school probably when fishing or something and ninety three percent of what people were buying and taking not working ninety three percents your odds of getting something niche.

Paradigm about what you think about bottom of day and I said with the books already been ordered. It's on the way coast read books all day long. And Yeah, I don't know this change paradigm I try to push it in any way but I do think what this book outlines, which this guy says take thirty thousand a day. It's like one Manana don't do that not without testing and that this is from the book. Now from Jack Sparrow one of the things that people talk about is I can't sleep dog do you have any kind of thing for sleep? Well, if you're low in Vitamin D. That can cause you to not sleep well. At date threes plays a very pivotal role in the body achieving the state needed for deep sleep and very, very important and I have people at tight. You know five, thousand, ten, thousand and some it gets them up for you need to be I think the sweet spots hundred. Seventy, five or this book says more than that, and there's no evidence of it being toxic, but there's more to that some teach you that. But when you're three levels are optimal, you your your immune system, the depth of sleep in the rest that you get there and your metabolism, your metabolism becomes primed to function more edge greatest potential.

A little bit so I in that kind of the way. The story went unnoticed. Sal Janet so skilfully keeps me from going down rabbit trails. That was really good Yeah it was a former. Cdc chief identifies the possibility curbing some of the corona virus This was a guy from two thousand nine to two thousand seventeen I think. Cdc Director says it's a possibility and they although not proof that vitamin D may strengthen. Immune system noticeably say possibility in May Particularly those that are vitamin D levels are low and then they go on to say that. That's about forty percent of and I say bull on that or I say bacon sandwiches pastor rusty would say although his wife tells him quit saying Bacon Sandwich inappropriate. But we do. Labs on GOBS and gobs of people in their vitamin D if it's highs thirty to forty and these people say but I'm in southern California. I'm on Beach Florida every day. I don't care. Your vitamin D is Low. And it's not even beginning to get adequate in my opinion. Tila hits fifty and above and I'd love to keep mine around eighty ninety but I don't have the gut absorption to do that so I think everybody needs to take it. It needs to be taken with heaven knowing. What's there you know? You need the lab. I think so. it Well in the other part of that is Because a lot of our probably written down to their local health food store by some vitamin D Are they all created equal? I mean do. They absorb the same way. Well you know. That's a good question Tucson Arizona. This Jack Speer Coast Survival podcast. One time and he has about quarter million listeners. Night they'd come on become you know patients and want me to help him. God Amon nightside while I'm taking five or ten thousand. Many of them said fiber ten thousand units a day. I'll say well it's not working finally got tired of hearing it and I did the statistics on it. Ninety three percent of everybody taken five thousand. I use a day or more was not working. And that's because they weren't getting the pharmaceutical type grade or why high is that? Oh I don't know a lot of supplements out there like you're crazy ex wife but well and and that's why we do the one with the K. as well right for people that have an absorption problem. Because I think there's more going on than just taking a vitamin D or zinc and isn't there. I mean yeah it. It really is the day mobilizes the calcium and then the K- helps shunt it back where it should be. Which is out of your coronary arteries out of your joints and it should be back into the brain and not into your kidneys. Mike and Kidney Stones so yeah I I I start with the D Three K. Two and a good ratio that Yeah this article. Further goes on to say Vitamin D supplementation reduces the risk of respiratory infection regulate side. O'connor cytokine production and can can limit the risk of other viruses such as influenza soap. Remember the words King. Remember that I I WANNA get into it lighter I hope because when you get a respiratory infection or many other. Saadane storms it. It becomes a kind of a vicious cycle. And it's a good thing but too much of it is not a good thing and I made a note here if I can find it Cytokines well-known chemical associated with inflammation has been oscillated in patients with all forms of coladas now. So we went from respiratory Toco Ladas. I'm not saying you have your head up your that comes from a journal of Perennial Interior nutrition and it also goes on these notes. I said toxic intestinal bacteria can produce interleukins another form of inflammatory chemicals and it comes from Journalism -nology journal free radical biology so these so-called cytokines storms can get to be really serious serious thing not just with your respiratory system. Although that's what's getting most of the attention now. So it's anytime you have inflammation inflammation good thing. That's protective your body's trying to protect you but it can get to be too much and get to be a vicious cycle so the cytokines are inflammatory proteins and it helps attack the so called germ or bacteria or virus but it can do so much. That actually hurts the body. At least in Mobility weight-loss eroding muscle tissues and power defined disease in itself and. I think that's one of the big things with people that have fibromyalgia thinks like that. You know super chronic pain syndromes in and this is almost always caused by a virus or bacteria according to most of the notes operate so wonder about he at chronic. What to do about it. Well you have to have a good week. Vitamin complex and like Janet said. They're not all signed. They're really not there's Things that the some of the higher ups are talking about vitamin C. whether it's orally or or the Pro Neolithic enzymes. That's pretty seriously Important and I hope I get to some other notes. We talk about bow films and Protease Enzymes. Zinc men are some. Oh my God good research about Q. And we use Kyushu with online. Because it has a synergistic effect and has the probiotic enzymes. That makes it work better within itself

I've been trying to get rid of some before the wonderful holiday season we had but it was a great excuse to keep eating so We're going to tell you a few things that you can do. Naturally we're we're going to offer you some supplements recommendations about Some things you can take to help speed it up and burn it up and we're also going to answer some very important questions that you guys have been writing into us Dr Lewis. I'M WANNA put him on the spot because he doesn't really know what I'm going to ask him so we'll see how that turns out anybody's been married word you've been on the spot all those years. Anyway it's kind of fun so we're going to answer things like I follow all the rules but I still can't lose weight. I'm just getting old and my metabolism is slow. It's genetic there's nothing new about weight loss. How many of you have heard that one? I mean we've heard that on these last impounds just won't go away. I feel like I should give up and there are certain foods. I can't stop eating even though I suspect they're bad for me so we're going to help you figure out what to do to stop eating those and don't you have a weight loss pill you can give me. I can't tell you how many times people called our office asked. Do we have appeal. I to this day. Don't believe that we have discovered the magic pill. The doctor lous though I had a lady walk in one time she said. Can you help me lose weight. I said Yep being follow the rules. I said how much you need Lou. She said forty two pounds because she's going to class reunion. I said all right how long long you want me to. Or how long are you going to give me to help you with this. She says three weeks took Munaf out of my pocket opened up. The Blade says wish leg K.. Hey I've tried everything to lose weight. Maybe I need to accept myself as fat and give up my skinny clothes. Don't be doing body shaming that going on in lot now on TV. It's like will. You should not be making fun of people for being overweight but at the same time you should not accept that that is normal because we're healthy because as you're saying hey it's okay if you have diabetes heart attack stroke because you know we're we're just large so we're going to address that it's not your genetics go nutrition and diet strategies that work for others don't seem to apply to me so maybe there's a reason that happening will discuss. And then I lose five pounds and then I regained seven it so frustrating and I know women say that a lot so moon due to eh if any of those statements are resonating with you than hold onto your hats because we are going to tell you perhaps one of the most important secrets of all is at your hormones could be out of whack and there are things you can do about that. So doctor Lewis. I guessed the number one thing that would make you out of whack to gain. Weight is a estrogen imbalance. Well that could be. You've heard me say pesticides. Odds plastics and fire retardants. But there there are so many different things that can and mimic estrogen. There Call Zeno Estrin. ESTROGENS ARE ESTROGEN ESTROGEN MIMIC hers. And that's why us. Men have low testosterone generally and swan little girls develop breast and national cycle many years before they should because we have so many of does that are just prevalent In our society the plasticizers or fe lights And you know you really can't avoid it it's better to do do without as many as possible but You know use glasser. CERAM ACRE CAST IRON. You know when you can but Yeah these estrogen. Mimic IRS Whether you're a man or woman we do a very is trademarked. A Damn Diangelo methane which is the Sharks is end. All three carbon all goes to diangelo methane But that's what you get in Broccoli Cauliflower Brussel sprouts Kale but you know you can't eat eight sixty pounds of that a day and if you could your wife couldn't stand the gas so it's easier just to eat you know the type the dam and that helps take out their conjugate these bad estrogens and the other thing is it helps increase testosterone. It helps increase free and weakly bound testosterone. And I'm sorry Janet I was just talking about a man there I was thinking this was our magic weight loss pill because you know on on on female that damn actually makes a woman get her shape back to the way it was when she was younger. It's through the hips you. You know because that's where the bad estrogen balances stored it's through the Tummy area and hips. And where if you if you need a bra in inner back because you get those fouls where your bra strap goes and you know. I've had women say well I'm not losing weight on. It is like it's not really for White Law. She she usually lose five six pounds. Maybe ten But you're cleaning up your body. People are so adamant soaring trying to clean it. Maligning language tr- so adamant about Detox while he's got a detox every day so the dam is very very important. Man What it did did for me is it made my prostate very very healthy. Well on a woman whenever they tell you that that is the main reason that they can't lose weight. Eight in relation to win a man loses. Weight is because of estrogen dominance. I think it's a stress living with her husband but it could be. I could be wrong. Well we've been on birth earth control pills all the all the kind of things that make estrogen higher. You know eating the meat. That's full of antibiotics. All that stuff you know. They're shot up with all all kind of chemicals that create an estrogen balance. Now you know meet Gets a bad rap and Janice Janez ride about the The antibiotics antibiotics and the ESTROGENS. But don't think red meat's bad you and it's not causing global warming. If people think me causes global global warming they know absolutely nothing about carbon sequestration You don't buy into it but get the good meat nowhere. Your meat comes comes from and make sure it's raised properly well and you should be eating more vegetables as well because I know a lot of this Kito Diet and all that staff you do a whole lot of protein. You should be doing a whole lot of vegetables. Also because that helps absorb the fiber helps absorb some of those Excreted access estrogens on the true. I mean more vegetables but if there's spraying those chemicals on them they're just as bad if not worse I than the mate. So that's why I tell people even if you're not getting any more nutrient density you're not getting the chemicals or the same amount on a chemical so go organic grow your own if he can. That's why Jack Speer Co the survival podcast. He teaches you how to do that. But more vegetables absolutely absolutely better fat absolutely and more of it. I'm a big fan of Kito. That's the one and in all the studies that's the one where people lose twice as much weight as any other died and keep it off and we had a picture of Tony from up in Nebraska and he says thank you Dr Louis Raskin mayor. You ready to get whale. And he's given me a little bit of credit. I won't Tony. You look good hundred pounds lighter and I'm glad I could help but you've got to take credit. You did the work and you had the motivation. So God bless you. You're an inspiration to other people. Exactly he did the work. which is the big deal? No excuses Tony. You never had them. And that's why you got success. So our problem with burning up those stubborn calories number two do is excess n Selanne and which we check that on lab and most doctors. Don't would you talk a little bit about the lab for those of you that or new to listening to our podcast You know we had a lady in here yesterday. This YUP got a couple of panels a lab and we were like. Oh boy what. Two three hours hours for the doctor's office to send it to us and then we were disappointed is lying when you're talking about this excess estrogen and you're talking about insulin. Can you explain a little bit about what you do differently. And what you're running and what you're looking for and how you see that even if you're in a Even if your glucose is okay and you're a one C is okay okay you know. He wants season ninety. Two hundred and twenty day blood sugar average even if they're okay but the insulin gets excessive And the range depending dependent on the lab goes from about two to nineteen or two to twenty four and I tell people that is not normal. That's what's going on in America if insulin get somewhere around five six seven eight and higher it to start. Creating let's excess glucose so the body turns it into triglycerides Oculus rods and boo boos all sorts of different cholesterol markers.
