"Quest. You're healthy lifestyle show. I'm Judy Brooks and I'm Roy walking. Horst. When we talk about healthy lifestyle for this new year, we're talking about holistic wellness. And things like energy, medicine and quantum healing to help us all achieve optimum health. Well, thank you for joining us. We hope all is well with you. In this unsettling time on today's show, we're going to delve into a key component of what's so unsettling these days. The big lies that are now an inescapable part of American life and politics. Well, these lies aren't just honest differences of opinion or annoying. Exaggerations. They're calculated intentional falsehoods, and they're being accepted as truth by millions and millions of our fellow citizens. In fact, big lies have led to an unprecedented level of division. You know, conflict and collective trauma in our country like we've never seen, so we're going to get some expert perspective on how this happened and how we can protect ourselves from the lies. That are so damaging to our emotional well being and our optimum health. We're also going to examine another category of falsehoods that can have a big impact on our health and our pocketbook. We're talking about the marketing myths in the natural products industry. We'll bust some of those. They will get a 2021 overview from an East Bay visionary whose impacting natural health around the world. And Judy self care segment is going to focus on resilience. In this time of change, But let's get back now to the topic. We teased at the top of the show the big lies that is so much a part of a conflict and collective trauma we are experiencing these days. Well, to help us understand this. We're pleased now to welcome via Zoom to healing Quest Doctor, Barbara O'Connor, She's emeritus professor of communications at SAC State and director of the Institute for the Study of Politics and Media. And if ever we needed solid insight into was going on at the intersection of communications, politics and media. Now would certainly be the time so hi, Barbara. Welcome to you. Hi. How are you guys? Thank you for joining us, Are you? Well, we're we're good. We're good, and we're excited to have this conversation with you today. So let's start with with the biggest of the current big lies. The assertion that the At the presidential race was stolen and given all of the detailed the bunking of that. How could so many Americans just help me understand? How could so many of my fellow citizens still be swallowing that big lie? Because they don't really weigh the facts. And the facts are the judiciary that Congress State secretaries of state have all said it was not a stolen election that it was, in fact, one of the fairest they've ever had. And even with mail in ballots, they were very meticulous about checking them and making sure that voters were not voting for other people. So the fact don't support what the big lie is about. Which leads me that this task you, Barbara, I'm sorry. Interrupt, but to me is this Is this a massive failure of critical thinking? And is this something about our educational system that we need to learn from? Yes, it is. And, you know, I think we have to teach the value of facts and truth and how to get to them, and I coached debate for 20 years. And it was all about getting to facts and truth and having multiple sources of information. And unfortunately the other side of this of which there are a lot of people. Do not value facts and evidence from multiple sources. And we have to teach that it is a critical thinking issue Well during World War two in the SS. I guess that was the predecessor to the CIA. They prepared a psychological profile of Hitler, which said At his primary rules. In part, we're never let the public cool off. Never admitted fault. Never accept blame but about lies. Hitler, you know, said people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one. And if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it. What can we learn from this? Well, we had Arnold Schwarzenegger this week all over talking about growing up in the fascist state and how this was analogous to it, And you have a lot of Republican elected now stepping up. And saying This is not true, so it's going to take time. And I think the Biden Harris administration has to just get solutions out there and not focus on the fact of difference, but focus on the fact of commonality. And I think we'll start to peel the onion and get people back. On course, as long as there are solutions to their problems. They have real problems and they are. You know, we have to acknowledge that And move on from there and start to get some thinking, OK, things are getting better, and that's really the path forward. If you're just joining us, I'm Roy walking Hearst and I'm Judy Brooks. And you're listening to healing quest. And we're speaking with Dr Barbara O'Connor about how to deal with the big lies that are now so much a part of American life these days. What can we do? If anything to shift the tide against the purveyors of you start coming up with enough vaccine the vaccine people so they can get out that step one. And the Biden Harris administration has a plan to do that as a national defensive strategy. I think you had Congress certify the election with Mike Pence. Voting yes. And you have Republicans on both sides of the aisle, saying that they really are supportive of moving forward and having a successful transition. So that's where you start and I think when you start to solve some of the country's problems with the minimum wage with housing with whatever appointments that people favor that are more moderate. They're not scared to death by them, which is what they are doing. Is very important because it's the starting place and the starting place matters. You have to acknowledge that there is a problem and most of us are not willing to do that, because we've been in our own belief structure all of our lives. And I programmed has been because I. As I said, I've always valued facts. I've always valued multiple sources of information. And so this is an aesthetic ultra that I mean, this is really a big lie, and you can't start there. You have to start elsewhere. Well, I know living with a journalist, you know, I mean, right just goes crazy because me too. But when I hear people say, Well, they all lie, but they all lie. And I don't believe any of the news. It's like I don't know how you repair that. I mean, and I hear it mostly for some time. You think so? Okay. Yeah. And you start by not having kind of real sensationalistic headlines. On either side. I mean, people are now criticism criticizing the mainstream media for covering Trump, and they're talking about whether or not he has clearance to get security briefings. Like other presidents. And you know, those are the issues that the group will now sees on next, and so we have to anticipate that acknowledge it and I think both sides have to get away from sensationalistic headlines. And you know, I read the post. I read The New York Times. I read the L A Times I watch multiple sources of television is and when you get agreement among all of those Then you know that you're being factual, and you can also see them making mistakes that they, you know, One of my best friends is a constitutional lawyer at Harvard, and he is so frustrated that he's starting to curse. And one of those farmers, students whose very well intentioned good person in Denver sent me a note saying, You need to talk to Larry Tribe and tell him not to curse. I said Okay, it's so I mean, it's that simple. You have to be pristine about your own blood value set and not start with the difference. But start with commonalities.

"You just need to plan right And it's really not that hard. No, I mean, you know you when you start to eat and when you're gonna, you know, have your last meal And if you want to help you want to have your last meal? At least a couple of hours before you're gonna go to bed, So it's It's not that hard to find 10 hours where you can eat well, you could have breakfast at nine and you could finish dinner at seven. And you'd be well within that framework, right? And there's a lot of research out there. You know, you can look it up on time restricted, eating in and find lots of advice and a lot of research that shows that it really works. If you're just joining us, I'm Roy walking horse and I'm Judy Brooks and you're listening to healing quest, and we're talking about time restricted, eating as a way to avoid the weight gain. That's unfortunately a part of the holiday season. For so many of us, you know, scientists, a controlling the schedule of food intake optimizes our metabolism. And supports our circadian rhythms. They say erratic eating patterns can disrupt the system and increase the risk of belly fat, more belly, fat, abnormal cholesterol and high blood pressure and sugar levels. I don't think those air anything that any of us really want right on the medical researchers say, eating and drinking everything but water within a consistent in our window gives the body on actual chance to rest and restore for 14 hours at night. Which is a good thing because that's the body needs that tackle the next day. It also enables your body to prepare to optimize metabolism when the next food arrives, But regardless of when you eat, controlling the intake of calories is still difficult. So the healing quest crack research staff who did that has found some really good suggestions for avoiding holiday weight gain a couple of more controversial well, we'll talk about that..

The views and opinions expressed are solely those of the host and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the staff management and parent company of KFBK. Hi. And welcome to healing Quest. You're healthy lifestyle show. I'm Judy Brooks. And I'm Roy walking. Horst. When we talk about a healthy lifestyle here on healing quest, we're talking about things like Integrated medicine and holistic wellness practices to help us all achieve optimum health. Well, thank you so much for joining us, as always. We hope you had a good week and a safe week and we all look forward to the time when the words stay safe, no longer have the hidden meaning of hope You don't catch a deadly virus. You know the covered 19 pandemic has tested us in so many ways, and we're still in the middle of one of those tests. You know, That's why we're going to start today's show by going back in time, a little bit too. You're healing question that we brought you on August 23rd our lead story that week as it's been first, so many weeks this year involved the pandemic and here's what we were talking about, then. On that topic. This week, we discovered a study in the American Journal of Tropical Medicine that literally left us speechless. First of all, I didn't even know there was a journal of Tropical Medicine. Actually, it's been in the news a lot, because these guys here Experts in things like viruses. Okay, well, the study reported that at least 800 people across the world died in the first part of the year because they believe that drinking bleach and other cleaning products Would kill the covert 19 virus. Researchers also found that almost 6000 people were hospitalized so far because of this false information on social media. The spread of online miss information relating to the pandemic has been labeled an info dem IQ by the World Health Organization. They say it's spreading faster than the virus. The country's worst hit by the misinformation. Our excuse me, of course, the U. S. Of Brazil and India, although researchers say they found pandemic misinformation in 25 languages from 87 countries. Doctors on the front lines of the pandemic say, you know they're increasingly fighting not just the Corona virus, but also a never ending, you know, Scourge of misinformation. That's It's actually really hurting patients. Researchers in the U. S and Europe say the volume of misinformation related to the virus is like nothing that they ever seen. King's College in London, the co author of a recent study on this topic. Says people who get their news online instead of from radio, television or newspapers are more likely to believe in conspiracy theories. And not to follow public health guidelines. So medical professionals have issued a warning for all of us to be more careful than ever about what we choose to believe about our health. In a time where we're faced not only with a pandemic, but also with an infidel Mick that's spreading faster than the Corona virus. So again, That was how we began healing quest on August 2030. Now the info Dimmick has received wide attention and I wish we could say things are better in the fight against the epidemic, but but we can't And that is definitely taking, you know, a big toll on the doctors and the nurses on the front lines of trying to keep us all safe. Now, if you're just joining us, I'm Judy Brooks. And I'm Roy walking horse. You're listening to healing quest, and we're talking about the covert 19 in food, Emmick that unfortunately, is still very much with us. We continue to see reports from medical professionals who say one thing that's exhausting them is having to deal with not just the Corona virus, but also with patients, some of whom are very sick. Saying that they're arguing that they don't really have this quote made up thing called Covert 19. And in fact, this week, the president of the U. N General Assembly called for increased efforts around the world to fight covert 19 misinformation. Vulcan. Bhaskar is his name, And he said the infidel Mickey is an international crisis that is costing lives. So you know, people who fall for this disinformation are less likely. To do things like wear a mask or or observed social distancing and basic things like practice. You know, personal hygiene. You know, they're They're really endangering. All of us around them are all the people that are around them. So while the pandemic is going to be with us well into next year, it wouldn't it be nice if we could all leave the infant Dimmick behind us right now, in all the places and with all the people we connect with every day. Please don't buy the baloney. Don't pass it on facts still matter, And so does the truth. And the truth is, the sooner we stamp out this miserable cove it misinformation, the sooner we put the pandemic in our rear view mirror. Okay. Well, let's zoom UVB onto something that I think all of. You're gonna want to know about so coming up. Next. We have some expert inside into a new study by the male clinic. You really want to hear about if you have a baby or a toddler in your life, If it's not yours, maybe the grandchild or niece or nephew. It's something it's It's really important. You need to know this. Then we're going to explore a new healing technique called Forest Bathing. One study has found that it delivers benefits like lower blood pressure and blood sugar levels and improve memory and immune system. In Northern California even has a forest bathing club. Judy's gonna welcome quantum healing expert Nikki Na garage to herself care segment to discuss the fact that the Earth's frequency is changing.

"Hi. And welcome to hell. Inquest. You're healthy lifestyle show. I'm Judy Brooks and I'm Roy walking horse. When we talk about a healthy lifestyle here on healing quest for talking about holistic wellness and things like integrated medicine, mind body techniques and quantum healing that could help us all achieve optimum well being. Well, thanks so much for joining us this weekend before Thanksgiving, which is this year, probably going to be a holiday ale, unlike any other you know, in many ways is going to be the most challenging Thanksgiving that most of us have probably ever had. And despite the discord that swirling around us these days, kindness and gratitude or more important than ever, In fact, Judy Self care segment today is focused on those very topics. Also today for those who want to get a jump on Christmas shopping. Oh, gosh, we're gonna be exploring some options that can help keep you safe and fashionable at the same time, and we're going to be examining a myth or two in the natural product world that could be costing you in more ways than one. But first we want to tell you about this surprising results of a global study into what college students these days are looking for in a life partner. Now, I was really fascinated by this study. The study was conducted by British researchers, and it was based on input from 2700 college students from all over the world. The study's participants had eight attributes to choose from, and physical attractiveness and financial prospects. Actually ranked two and three. You're going to guess what the number one is okay. The number one life partner attribute in the survey was Kindness, which I just loved. I love that these young people consider that to be the most important thing. Also on the research front. We have some good news for cat lovers. And that B s. I'm sorry. Scientists at Oregon State University report that they found that although cats have a reputation for being aloof, in fact, they form secure attachments to their human caretakers, much like dogs and infants do The study's author says the majority of domestic cats are securely attached to their owners and rely on them as a source of security plus food. Yeah, they always rely on you for food, right? I think that's true. I mean, I love it. I feel really bonded with our county. And you know cats have many fans in the U. S not just us. The most recent figures show that 94.2 Million cats are ruling the roost in U. S households. Now you know, I would have thought there were more dogs, but that compared with 89.7 Million dogs so more cats. In fact, 68% of all U. S households have at least one pet and our relationship with him is a constant source of Affection, amusement and mystery. Relationship between us and our animal companions continues to be an irresistible topic for authors as well, including Carlin Montez to Oka of Marin County. She's written a book that we really like a lot on the human animal connection and the self care that our animal companions can actually help us with. Her book is titled Dog as my doctor cat as my nurse and animal lovers guide to a healthy, happy and extraordinary life. It's really interesting book, but what it's focused on what I wanted. Things I connected with his is focused on how dogs and cats teach us humans. Out of state present, be playful and live positively. Yes, And you were telling me that the book also talks about the physical benefits of having a dog or a cat? You know, it lowers your blood pressure. It reduces stress, and this is research shows this This is definitely this is a fact This is this is a fact and the author sites that exercise dog owners get when they walk their dogs. Is a big health benefit Reminds me of Marty Rossman years ago who did the founder of the guided It got to do to get it injury Exactly. And Marty said if we would all just treat ourselves as well as we treat our dogs, you know you give him water to take him for walks if we did if we did that for ourselves, So if you've got a dog and you're taking it for a walk, you're getting lots of great exercise. If you're just listening. I'm Roy walking horse, and I'm Judy Brooks and you're listening to healing quest, and we're talking about how our animal companions can play an important role in our own self care..

"I'm Judy Brooks and I'm right walking Horst. We talk about a healthy lifestyle here on healing quest. We're talking about things like Integrative medicine and holistic wellness practices to help us all live happier, healthier and longer. Well, thanks for joining us. We hope you're doing well and surviving these stressful times. The American Psychiatric Association says two out of three Americans thes days report feeling extremely are somewhat anxious. About keeping themselves and their families safe. And of that number one third say they're more anxious this year than other years, And certainly there's no no surprise at all. Given the political climate these days and, of course, The continuing pandemic and its threat to our health is also certainly a big contributing factor to that anxiety, But we do have some positive news to share with you about dealing with anxiety, and one of those is a new approach to mobilizing our natural killer cells. So we can protect ourselves against infectious pathogens and disease. Part of that approach involves selenium, zinc, ECON Asia and pomegranate extract. Those air all ingredients that I've heard about over the years but never really got to know. So in about 10 minutes, we're going to do exactly that. And find out what each of these immune boosters does to help support our health. We're also going to update you on some new developments involving two of the most impressive healers that Roy and I have met in our two decades of healing quest. We're talking about Janet Dan and Dr David's dying Horn. Six months ago, We told you about the work in creating a guided Chamonix journey for youth in treating covert 19 and other extreme medical conditions. The God journey involved narration and indigenous drumming, along with nature sounds and images. It is now in use across the US and actually around the world. Giving seriously ill patients a sense of Of connection to their loved ones, in spite of the physical isolation that often happens in covert 19 treatments. Now they've created additional guided journeys, including one for stress. That's designed for all of us to use and we're gonna be sampling some of their new work a little bit later, which is really quite amazing. And we'll tell you how to access those guided journeys to help you relieve the stress you may be feeling. And Judy self care segment today is focused on the power of staying in the moment, especially in stressful times. And I'm delighted to see that joining her today is one of my favorite people. Phoebe Reuben. Well, she's certainly one of my favorite people. She's actually one of my best friends. So in full disclosure TV night were partners when we lived in San Francisco and I work together and you're going to hear about what we did together when you listen to myself here segment later in the show if you're just joining us, I'm Roy walking Horst and I'm Judy Brooks, and you're listening to healing quest and were speaking about the different perspectives. We're going to access with regard to dealing with the stress and anxiety that is So much a part of our life these days, and we're going to start with some insights from an author and a distinguished position at Stanford University. Dr. Greg Hammer is the pediatric intensive care physician and a pediatric anesthesiologist. He's also a researcher into immunology and pharmacology and the author of a book titled Gain Without Pain. Happiness Handbook for health care professionals. His approach to dealing with stress is to focus on what he calls the four pillars of happiness and resilience. And those are demonstrated by the acronym Gain. And include gratitude, acceptance, intention and non judgment. I propose that we all do a three minute game meditation in the morning. So in the game meditation we simply Get in touch with the breath, maybe slowly, inhaling to a count of three and pausing to account of two and effortlessly exhaling to accounted for, and we kind of get into this rhythm and it calmed us down. That alone will decrease the adrenaline in our body. Her heart rate will slow our blood pressure will come down. Our breathing rate will slow. And then I suggest just 30 or so seconds devoted to gratitude initially. And gratitude is central to all manner of religion and philosophy that has to do with self healing. And dealing with stress, and we all have much for which to be grateful. Acceptance is the ability to just open our hearts and as the serenity prayer would have it. Discern what we can change and what we can't change. And that which we can't change like generally, the circumstances of this pandemic we just accept And if we dwell on that, and just sit with it and bring that feeling that may be uncomfortable, closer and closer. Most of us confined acceptance. Even in the most painful experiences the I stands for intention, and that simply reminds us that we can rewire our brains, which are wired to have a negativity bias. But if we exercise our brain's like we exercise our body with focus on purposefulness in our life, which is central to mindfulness, for example, we can learn to be present more of the time. And the end is non judgment and Most of us can relate that it's really exhausting to be judging everything in our environment all the time, including ourselves. So those are the pillars of gain. And I think We can practice those for elements briefly during the day when we're walking down the hall that we're making up a coffee, etcetera, So I really think those are the pillars of Letting go of stress those air great suggestions for our listeners. I think that I love that gang. I know you're a pediatrician, so I want to make sure that we touch on working parents be doing right now to keep the anxiety level down in our Children. Great question, Judy. I think the number one element is for the parents to be called. Our kids are really connected. Just like our pets are that seemed to know what kind of mood were in if we're want them to come over and sit next to us, or If were upset about something. Or maybe even if we're sick, they might come over and and curl up next to us. Our kids take take a page from our behavior in our mind State and so Let's just especially in the presence of our Children. Take a breath, Let the resistance to those elements of gang go and simply be calm ourselves and and the other second thing I think is important is to be totally transparent and open with our kids. If they're over the age of 45, they can They can understand what it is that we're all going through it, and I think just expressing things to them with openness and honesty is always the best policy. I couldn't agree more. I think that's great advice. Is it okay to say Dr Hammer in that transparency that I'm a little scared? As the adult Should I come to that fact?.

Basically all things holistic that for the past year and I have I've personally been on a mission to create more ways of incorporating self care and self love into my practice. I was finding that I was Just really kind of spreading myself too thin and not really tending to my to my own needs. You know my own self care needs. And even though I was doing a weekly health show, either on television or radio for almost 20 years. I still wasn't always taking the time for myself and and I knew if I was feeling that way. That it was probably really safe to say that many of you may be also feeling that way you know off. Our lives are so full. It's hard to take time for ourselves. Even in this pause, it's been hard. So any pains didn't beating myself up for that, which certainly wouldn't be an act of South care. I committed Tio, finding even more ways to stay balance centered and grounded.

"Quest. You're healthy lifestyle show. I'm Judy Brooks. And I'm Roy walking. Horst. When we talk about a healthy lifestyle here on healing quest, we're talking about things like Integrative medicine and holistic wellness practices to help us all live happier, healthier and longer. Thanks for joining us today. And as we said every week now for over four months, we hope you're staying safe. Doesn't it feel longer than four months since the pandemic upended our lives? It certainly feels like that to us, and unfortunately, it also feels more dangerous given the covert 19 surge in so many places and the fact that the seasonal flu is also fast approaching. So one word was certain to hear a lot in coming weeks. His vaccine That's a word that can be very controversial. So we thought today would be a good time to update our understanding of this topic. As a result, in a few minutes, we're going to be joined by renowned microbiologist curing Christian. Who knows a lot about vaccines and our immune system and what we can do to protect and enhance our health. Also today, we're going to be checking in with the Northern California treasure soil born farms in Rancho Cordova soil Burned farms is 55 acres of innovation and organic heaven. On the banks of the American River. Over the last 20 years, it's become a nationally recognized center for promoting urban agriculture and sustainable food systems in healthy food education. They grow a wide range of produce, and they offer a wide array of organic prepared goods. Right, particularly likes their fruit pies. My favorite They're they're pretty fabulous. We'll also find out what's new at the Garden Green House shop and at Millie's mercantile, So it turns out that a lot is still going on right now down on the farm. Because of the pandemic. The farm is close to the public now, but that doesn't mean it's entirely off limits because an online marketplace has been open, so we'll find out how to shop from home and how to take advantage of the Saturday morning pickup. Will you drive over to the farm and have your purchases loaded into your car by some smiling soil borne farmers. Even with a massive comptel, they're happy to see you. That's just the tip of the iceberg of what's going on. They're so in about 20 minutes. We're going to be joined by Janet Zeller, one of the farms founders to bring us up today on how soil borne farms is weathering. He's a very interesting time. So you're definitely not going to want to miss that. And in Judy's self care segment. Today, the topic is the importance of staying in the moment, which is increasingly difficult to do, given all the distractions that surround us every day. It all Those distractions only mean it's more important than ever to quote be here now is Rhonda's memorably said in 1971 joining Judy and her segment is Phoebe Reuben. Psychologist, writer and filmmaker who's currently working on a movie titled Work While you Have the Light Judy and Phoebe have literally decades of history together. Yes, we do. That's for sure. I think I meant Phoebe over 25 years ago when we were living in San Francisco. And we became fast friends and then ended up collaborating on some projects. And I'm really excited to get to talk to her today. I would say that Phoebe Reuben is one of the most insightful people I know. And I know from experience that when a Judy Phoebe conversation gets rolling, that alone is worth the price of admission. So trust me, you won't want to miss that. But first we have some good news from the world of natural help. Let's start at University College in London, where scientists have discovered that staring at a deep red light for a few minutes a day can significantly improve eyesight and people over 40 Participants in the study were given a small led light, and they were asked to stare into the light beam for three minutes a day for two weeks participating than tests were individuals from 28 years old to 72 years old. So that's that's a pretty wide range. Opthamologist, saying no change was found in the eyesight of those under 40 But significant improvements were found in those over 40 specifically the ability to detect colors and the ability to see in low light. Studies. Other says red light wavelengths reach our cells in the retina that have declined with age. They liken it to recharging a battery. They say this home based therapy could help millions of people around the world deal with naturally declining vision, which they say happens to virtually everyone over the age of 40. I think I'd have to agree with that. The results of the study were published in the Journal of Gerontology. If you're just joining us, I'm Roy walking horse and I'm Judy Brooks and you're listening to healing quest and we're updating you on some good news from the world of natural health. Including research from Israel, showing that hyperbaric oxygen therapy can improve the cognitive function of healthy older adults during hyperbaric oxygen therapy, R H. But as it's called Patient breeze in pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber, with the pressure increased the twice that of normal air. This increases oxygen in the blood as it travels throughout the body. And stimulates the release of growth factors and stem cells that promote healing. A spot has been used around the world, mostly to treat physical wounds and the Israel researchers say that their study is the first time this oxygen therapy has actually been used to address cognitive performance. Study lasted three months and involved healthy adults over 60 all of whom had normal age related cognitive issues for their age. Researchers say that after the H by treatments, they found improvements in cognitive attention, information processing. And decision making. Improved blood flow was also observed in specific brain locations. The peer reviewed study was done at television University and at Shameer Medical Center, one of the largest medical centers in Israel. Scientists say their research could have a far reaching impact on.

"Hi and welcome back to healing quest I'm really walking and I'm Judy Brooks and if you listen to us on a regular basis you know that are focused on healing quest is integrative health and holistic wellness and that includes things like energy medicine and integrative therapies and really paying close attention to our nutrition now what important part of our nutritional mix are supplements in we take a lot of supplements every day to give our body the Exter ingredients that were not getting from our food now the supplements we think are most important R. a probiotic and a prebiotic along with Anna you know globulin in a vitamin K. two seven new even taking the supplements for quite awhile now to keep our immune system in good health and we follow the recommended dosages but it occurred to us a few days ago that if some is good could more be better and I also wondered if we need to be careful about when we take our supplements and what we take them with to get maximum benefit so to provide the answers to those questions we've asked microbiologist Karen Christian he is the chief science officer of just thrive probiotics to join us now by zoom from his home base in Chicago hi Karen how are you doing I'm good I'm good can sitting we are in I'm usual times I have to say I am extremely busy but doing well good well I'm glad you're busy and I'm really happy to hear that you're doing well so let's start with the the core product in our supplement strategy and that for us is a spore based probiotic and anti oxidants from a company called just thrive yours for those listeners who may not be familiar with probiotics can you give them a quick tutorial sure yeah the the quick answer on that is probiotics as defined by the World Health Organization are live micro organisms when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit to the house so the key parts of the are that these are live organisms that are being administered into subject a patient if you well and and there is a dose dependency that's the adequate amount out part of it and then it it ultimately it provides a benefit to the host of the benefits could be very broad ranging from immune metabolic health all the way to very specific conditions so the dose is listed as is one capsule per day but if one is good would two be better would to be twice as good yeah it's it's not it's not quite linear like that where where one is good too stressed about it three three times better and so on but there is an additive a fact depending on how much stress the body's going under at the time you know we also say on the clinic sign and so on that if somebody's going through an issue issue right now that they can double up there does to give the body a little bit extra boost because it does help support the immune system it does help support a healthy immune response and there is a dose dependency to parts of that so when the immune system is undergoing stress it's a good time to give the immune system a little extra boost does it make any difference when we take a probiotic so yes the only way it makes a difference the thing that we found is whether you take it with a meal or in between meals on the time of day doesn't matter as much as whether you're trying to do it what or between meals we find that taking it what the meal is far more effective than taking in between okay so I know I I sometimes just take my supplements in the morning and then maybe some other ones at night so you're suggesting that wait and take the probiotic right before a meeting exactly with any sort of food of the day whether it's a small snack it doesn't have to be an entire meal and R. K. was the microbes themselves we utilize components in the food to activate themselves and then start metabolizing in producing all these beneficial compounds okay well that's good to know you know now we've also come to believe that a that a prebiotic is is really extremely important that's because of our conversations with you can you remind us about the difference between a probiotic and prebiotic just in general and wind of precision prebiotic from just ride has that name Y. Y. precision prebiotic yeah and and that's a critical distinction when it comes to prebiotics or probiotics in general are food for the bacteria they are essentially defined as foods that the human host cannot digest and assimilate so we don't have the capability of breaking down and absorbing them in use using that for energy they are instead there specifically to feed bacteria so their job is to act as natural food now there's lots of foods and lots of components that qualifies for you by addicts the problem is some of them are pretty general meaning that they can feed lots of different groups of bacteria and some of them I'm much more specific they have structures that only certain types of bacteria can can consume them and those are the precision prebiotics so you could get something like a psyllium husk which is a very general fiber prebiotics the problem with something like that is it can feed a dysfunctional bad bacteria as well as it feeds good bacteria right so you're already messed up in your ecosystem your god and then you start putting in a bunch of bacteria food you could be inadvertently feeding the messed up or dysfunctional bacteria so we'll we want to do is instead selecting hone in on the precision prebiotics that specifically feed the good bacteria without feeling bad bacteria that's where the really important distinction comes in and that's and that's a distinction between say just drive and other prebiotics exactly yeah you know we pioneered this whole idea of a precision prebiotic it was before before us nobody else has launched a product that was defined as a precision attic and the good thing is this clinical studies show that these prebiotics specifically feed just good groups of bacteria so it's a it's a new concept in the world of prebiotics but I think it's a very necessary evolution so precision prebiotic comes as a powder and I mix it into it to shake usually with an organic banana or pear anytime a day when it's best for me to do that and is adding some fresh fruit okay that that whole combination yeah absolutely because you know in nature where you would typically get those same prebiotics are from fruits I did that but they tend to be concentrated in the fibrous portions of those fruits you can get some from from certain types of agricultural products to like corn but it comes with a copy of the court not the court no our industry eats the cop right that's the one with the rollout but inside the com are all these extremely precious prebiotics but because when I can eat them under the under the normal food then it's it's it's better to consume them as a prebiotic the fruit based provide extra call through to a legal secretary they actually come from the fibrous portions of fruits the ones we work with in particular come from a green and gold and cheats and it comes out from the hospital to find a part of the of the week so absolute goes right along with adding in some some organic fruits and and making this movie out of it is and is a great way to drink it because the thing is you don't need to take it all in one shot in fact fiber and prebiotics are better utilized by the microbiome if you step on it over a certain amount of time all amounts over let's say at thirty forty fifty minute period yeah rather than taking all at once in one shot that makes sense so to rice questioner bout the about the probiotics with a prebiotic is more better I mean say during this time when we're really all trying to support our immune systems would it be good for us to be taking you know M. wanted to skip the day so provided will not have any sort of toxicity limit or any dangerous limit so it's fine to take more than that limit will be determined by your ability to to handle it so what will happen is if you take too much prebiotics will guess get some gas production okay some of it will start getting turned into gas so you can find your upper limit I have been taking prebiotics awhile so I can do treated me school today but I do remember the first time I bumped up my dosage to schools I got more gas than I thought it was like you know that that gets refined over time as you're consuming and just lying you know in in nutritional science the recommendations were fine or increase over time you know in now the studies showing that upwards of sixty grams of fiber date is is really beneficial at some point we were and you know ten to twelve and then if we were eighteen and twenty two and it keeps going up because what we're seeing is the more of this kind of nutrients that we take in in general the healthier we tend to be but you have you'll reach your tolerance level for your system if you're just joining us I'm Roy Walker and I'm Judy Brooks and you're listening to healing quest and we're speaking with microbiologist Karen Christian the chief science officer of just thrive probiotics about maximizing the benefits of the supplements that we take every day you know we've also recently discovered that I. G. G. M. you know globulin because of you again can you remind us that our listeners about what that actually does yeah so I G. immunoglobulins are basically proteins are made by your immune system every every living thing living animal makes I. G. G. S. IG and different types of antibodies that's the way your immune system defends against things that it has encountered in the past for example if there's a particular bacteria or virus media means systems familiar what it'll have a stockpile of antibodies against it against a virus or bacteria so that next time it encounters it you can just released all of those antibodies and what they do is they go and coke the virus bacteria or toxins whatever it may be and essentially neutralize it and market for removal by the immune system so I so he's an imminent violence or antibodies are extremely extremely important in your defense mechanisms what we found is that when you take immunoglobulins out for example from above mine source like a medic how the cows immunoglobulins has a huge variety of antibodies that protect against a lot of different things you know imagine the panels out there in the past year and encountering all kinds of bacteria and viruses insists and mold and environmental toxins and all that and that house building immunity against all of those things and because it's building immunity against all of those things is building antibodies against all of those things so we can take those antibodies in the house and when you ingest it I'm just liking Justin colostrum one of the effects of colostrum is these antibodies you get what you get is a layer of protection that the cows antibodies can actually help yours your immune system neutralizing deal.

"Last night and I'm Judy Brooks and if you listen to us on a regular basis you know our focus on healing classes integrative health and holistic wellness to help us all live longer healthier and happier and you'll also know that we're always on the lookout for advances in brain and mental health issues so that's why we were attracted to the work of Paula Norris Matt Hey on the topic of brain restoration she is a pioneer in the use of IV infusions to treat the brain disease of addiction it's a treatment that usually works in just ten days of outpatient treatment with minimal withdrawal symptoms and without substituting another narcotic it sounds too good to be true but she says it is in fact true so we're pleased now to welcome from her home in Mississippi therapist and author Paula Norris Matt Hey thanks for joining us today hydraulic for having me good to have you with us well this is really fascinating work that you've been doing for the last twenty years and a key part of your treatment is something called mad plus an AD plus what is that and how exactly does it work in A. D. Stanford nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide which gives you an explain why we call it an eighty eight is all my questions in A. D. is one little molecule that surprisingly has so many healing qualities to it I would say it is in every cell in our body and because it's in every cell of our body we have been discovering over these twenty years that we've been giving this IBM and fusion all of how far reaching this will be and actually it is already beginning to make some major changes on the way medicine is being looked at in certain diseases how we started out with treating people with addiction and we were able to and still do help them detox from it as well as what we consider the brain restoration from it I'm like a typical medical detox someone is not only just being detox from having the addictive substance in their body but we also have what we're calling the brain restoration peace and with that the prefrontal cortex comes back online and a person's memory concentration focus improved mood sleep all whole host of wonderful things happen and basically in that process there is no craving for the substance one of the things that I think both Judy and I were impressed by Apollo was the fact that you treat addiction as a disease rather than a character defect so we'd love to have a little bit of background on how you came to that realization several ways through observation of people are getting so much better after the treatment and then also there's research that demonstrates that it is a brain disease and that it is not a choice person cannot decide they're not going to crazy anymore than a diabetic would be able to change their eight one three eight but I can tell you that what we see clinically is a transformation that is beautiful and very hopeful for anyone who is suffering from brain disease if you're just joining us I'm Roy walking horse and I'm Judy Brooks and we're speaking with Paula Norris met today about breaking the addiction cycle naturally now one of the things that came up when I was reading the book is you're you're dealing with this M. A. D. which is a substance that is actually treating the disease but then there's also things with addiction and usually there's a lot of anger and a lot of fear around it and you spoke a little bit about this in the book how do you make friends with the fear and the anger that sits beneath many of these addictions well one of the things that that the M. A. D. will do because the lady repairs damaged DNA and I believe that's actually what's going on as far as the treatment of concern because no one well I can say this ninety five maybe ninety eight percent of the people who come through for the detox all have no craving usually by day five and day they don't have any craving any longer which is part of what brings people to relapsing chronically three important piece to is that when the damage DNA is repaired the person begins to think more clearly they literally see more clearly but what happens is that they've got hope they believe that maybe just maybe at this point in time there is something that is actually going to give them a leg up into the saddle so they can actually ride their pony without being thrown now that doesn't make that doesn't mean that some people don't slip or in fact some do relapse but they come back to us almost immediately and with each each booster each treatment that someone receives there's more and more repair and that's what we see all the time how many years have you been doing this and how many patients have you treated okay we've been doing at all almost twenty nineteen this year would be nineteen and we have treated more than fifteen hundred patients over that time if our listeners want to find out more about your work Paul how can they do that they can go to our website and they can they can call if I take a lot of the calls myself yeah happy to answer and discuss any of this with anyone who's interested in what's the web address that they should go to okay the web address is Springfield wellness center dot com they have to include the center because otherwise they end up in Springfield Missouri bring it Springfield wellness center dot com and I suppose they could also buy.

"Show I'd rather walk in cars and I'm Judy Brooks in if you've listened to us on a regular basis you know our focus on healing grasses energy medicine holistic wellness and integrated health and you know that nutrition is also a big topic for us here and in recent years one controversy all topic in the nutritional world has been gluten and the concern that gluten is the cause of information in our body that's led to the development of gluten free products but those that have been ridiculed by some people for being products in search of a nonexistent problem so to get some clarity on this issue we decided to consult microbiologist Karen Christian and about the gluten controversy hi Karen look about dealing quest all right thank you so much I had majored in right so I understand something is new in your world something on a topic that actually in our in our little little personal world is kind of controversy of the whole topic of gluten we have close friends to go you know that's crazy you know you're just fallen for marketing hype and yet I think our own experiences and we became conscious of the gluten in our food and tried to reduce it I think that was a real important thing it made a big difference it made a difference yeah we feel the difference so I don't think it's marketing I don't either but I'm interested to know which I strive just thinking about this yeah well so I'm glad I'm so glad we're talking about this because you know I could say for for some time until more more the research has come out I I've been dubious of it as well because I I go by yeah but you know and they'd make sense that gluten is they should be here inflammatory compound but we have also as the population been eaten gluten for years right so the question is what happened what's changing why should we pay attention to it right now we started paying attention to it because you know we have a major focus on leaky gut leaking guy is the biggest source of chronic inflammation and leaky gut is the biggest driver of a chronic illness there's there's been numerous review papers that have been published it says let me he got in the century the biggest cause of mortality worldwide especially in the modern world wow right so so yeah and that so that it's staggering when you think about it and when you start thinking about what you got you okay what are all the things that are driving leak you got there was a study that came out about a year and a half ago and they they actually have BDO's of this where they showed that even in people that do not seem to be sensitive to gluten there are people that are very clearly sensitive gluten certainly nearly axe right really act that but silly acts make up only one to two percent of the populations of small number now there and then there's a whole you know spectrum of people that have really obvious sensitivity to people that can eat gluten and don't feel anything right but what the show was in a hundred percent of the subjects that they tested that even a minute exposure to gluten call this immediately to that call this transient intestinal permeability in yeah in a hundred percent of people right so these are not just celiac people these are not people are known to have a gluten sensitivity allergy this isn't a hundred percent of people everybody experiences transient leaky got meaning as your body is trying to deal with the gluten and digesting it the food is going to your system opening up the lining of your intestine and it happens almost immediately and we have big deal of this meaning they put cameras down into people's intestines when they can they have electron micrographs where you can watch the intestinal lining becoming more permeable and stuff oozing out of it talks in late and stop losing out of it into the circulatory system in also a bat it back power poll of the talks and then July leaky gut and drive systemic inflammation here is a crazy thing most people will say if they can eat gluten and they don't have a GI symptom that they're not not so you can put it to good because they know somebody that it liak or really sensitive to gluten and every time the gluten they get really bad cramps in their stomach aches and they got aches in the next couple of days so they don't get that and so they tell them so they're not sensitive to gluten well as it turns out other studies have shown only one in eight people have GI symptoms when it comes to gluten the other seven out of eight people have symptoms elsewhere in the body they don't correlate to having that golden because it could be in your brain you could gather some brain called units it could be vision it could be neurological could be muscle pain it could be anything now no you don't necessarily tied back to the gluten you ate at lunch two hours ago right so it's it's really clear that in a hundred percent of people gluten is damaging to the gut lining it dries chronic inflammation and it affects every body and it's not necessary in the got but somewhere else in the body as well do you think it's I mean do you think that this is happening because of the way we're growing our friends our processing or food I mean is because I don't think it used to be that way X. you know that that's the thing what's interesting about that question do you didn't used to be that way did we used to have gluten sensitivity and intolerance and just didn't know it right when you can have a way of measuring it wouldn't have a way of labeling it impact the question that still hasn't been a firm now we do know that the types of we have changed over the last several decades we know that we tend to be more glued netspend it use that it used to be now the that he used to be back in the day and part of that is because they're they're doing all this cross breeding to increase the gluten content a week because that's part of what gives we its structure would you make bread by the gluten is really what's giving it the structure the good news what giving it given that the like texture where Brad is really nice and fluffy and is a great bike all of that comes from gluten and so they're hybridizing we have more of that now on top of that it's the roundup yeah I was right right so then you add that this potential inflammatory compound this peptide it's a protein gluten this protein and then you you deliver it with a toxin that destroys them the gut microbiome that creates permeability that increases inflammation it screws up your immune system and basically what you're getting is a perfect combination to create inflammatory response in the front you know so it it that that to me that's probably the biggest impact the fact that gluten itself has changed over the last couple of decades part of it the second part of it and maybe the bigger part of it is the fact that it's hard to find week that doesn't have right right you know so it all comes in combination yeah I'm for me personally I I'm you know I could never bothers me if I'm in Europe or Italy or someplace I believe it's because they don't allow blacks eight yeah some degree now you know the doctor doctor Tom o'brien the lives of global export and gluten he actually lives in Italy now I backed into the the the eagles and their needs he wouldn't eat at their he will not RK he wouldn't know now that our systems are sensitive to it it may not affect this because the concentration of gluten in the food there and the breads at all not the same as it is here but it still does will likely because the permeability you know and and here's the problem with all of this right why why we even talking about it well to us the solution has been simple I'm held last year the solution to us has been okay because no products here in because the solution is is is simple just don't eat gluten right if if everybody is considered a gluten give a call this week he got in a hundred percent of people it causes chronic low grade inflammation and it's driving toxicity and the easiest way to help yourself it's just not eat right now a study came out in March of last year in the in the American Journal Gastroenterol logy they a bunch of research is went out and the question five thousand and six hundred different gluten free foods in cafes and restaurants and places out in the marketplace right they would order a meal they would order things from the cafe a gluten free burrito gluten free pizza group three this will be that and as soon as the food came that would pull out the little bags of checks and they would do their little gluten test right there on the spot they found that upwards of fifty percent of the food they tested had believed in it well advertisement and free right absolutely so that's the problem and we also know that it's very hard to get a way from ground up and like you say so remember the two of them are in combination is what really drives the big problem if you can remove one of them the problem gets resolved quite significantly right so we can somehow remove the crisis state and you're still getting expanded explosion gluten the impact won't be as back you can remove the gluten and you're still getting kind an explosion of life to save the impact on his back right so awful because they look at how do you do at least one of those two things and so we we work with actually Dr Brian and came up with an enzyme products that is really really effective and breaking down the gluten protein in the stomach it socks and keep in mind that you know we talk about going all the time but there's a whole class of of protein called widens that there's twelve thirteen or maybe even more different types of the gluten protein that because this kind of reaction so our focus what can we get an enzyme product that you could take with every meal and certainly when you eat outside and you're not you know there's a fifty percent chance then Gruden prepaying you ordered has looked at it right can you take a and then behind that helps break down the gluten protein in the stomach so that it doesn't end up in the intestine as gluten causing the inflammatory response so that's where the the the Clinton and blind product comes and it comes into play and we really only started looking at that when that American Journal gas anthology study came about because no longer is avoiding gluten foods a solution because in a no no you come out of this other than the other all right nobody produces a hundred percent of the mails from scratch even even buying ingredients in the grocery store to take gluten free even.

"Hi and welcome back to human quest time rule and I'm Judy Brooks and if you listen to us on a regular basis you know our focus on your quest is energy medicine integrated health and holistic wellness well this time of year tends to be a time when many of us are thinking about what we can do to improve our health and what scientific information we should know about to help us make that decision no figuring this out eight easy so to give us some guidance we asked our friend here in Christian one of the world's leading microbiologist and researchers to spend a few minutes with us and he's joining us now by phone from Chicago hi Karen welcome the west and so good to have you back happy new year after year thank you grab me so as you look ahead you look to the year ahead and have friends and family said you you know I I know you're one of the world's leading microbiologist what should I be thinking about this year what's that maybe one thing I should make sure I'm doing to be healthy this year and what would your answer be you know I would I would say number one is recognized them understand the importance of the trillions of passengers that you have living on your spaceship body human body okay and all of the things that they do for you you know and so we have to acknowledge that I understand that and then also nurture them you know they're dead they've got and all of the microbes that live in the got outside of the gun on other parts of your body they control over ninety percent of all our metabolic activity wow and they can reduce our disease risk or that can increase heart disease what can you say that one more time who's doing what to ninety percent yes Sir I hope all of these Mike of the passengers on our bodies in our got on our scan on our you know in our long day in our brain they're everywhere they're not cerebral spinal fluid there in our blood they are everywhere they control over ninety percent of all metabolic activity in the human body think about it this way we know that genes right DNA right the cold everything that we do estimates right we we literally run millions of chemical reactions in the body every single minute of every single day in order to function of the human and math and some of those chemical reactions are very basic things with exchanging oxygen for carbon dioxide so we can bring taking water and and utilizing water in the system and then to a very complex things like making complex molecules that are needed for brain to function car immune system functions are hard to beat all of these things and for a body to detect cancer and cited for Bobby to detect autoimmune disease and fight it and inspections and pathogens that all of these things right so it's such a complex system all of that is run by DNA right DNA collides with colds all of the tools that we used to be human now when you think about the amount of DNA that in our system it becomes quite staggering so in our own jeans either human genes we've got about twenty three thousand functional jeans right and that sounds like a lot without yes it does they dug right but it pales in comparison to the amount of bacterial DNA we have in our system some of the latest studies on the harbor so that we have upwards of twenty million Sheryl genes in our system compare that to the ailing twenty thousand or twenty three thousand that we have humidity right so that gives you a view on how important these microbial passengers are and if you have the right one they can be extremely protective allow you to live a long life allow you to have a stable moon good body weight healthy heart healthy brain all of that stuff if you have the wrong one and you've got the wrong one to two high proportion they can draw live disease so my new year's resolution as it should be for most people it number one understand and appreciate the importance of the role that these microbial passengers plate and then number two support the good ones I assume that to support those good ones having a probiotic involved would be really important a probiotic has those huge huge role and not any kind of providing at the right time right what's the right kind of lighting yeah the the most simple part of it is the probiotic have to provide you have to get past the gastric system well yes it was called a gastric barrier designed to kill bacteria that's coming in and and then bile salts in our small talking kills bacteria so in order for provided to relieve the function of the provided half of them I know all of that and then the biggest thing is it has to have an impact on the rest of the population right you look at some of the high dose probiotic products let you pick up a bottle that has two hundred billion bacteria per serving and that sound again like a lot when we talk about you can the numbers right two hundred billion is an immense number but you're taking that two hundred billion and you're putting it into a key of microbes where there are over a hundred million bacteria wow right so unless those two hundred billion that you're taking in can have an effect on the other hundred trillion you're not really going to be any change in your system because remember how when it comes to the microbiome is is a consequence of having the right balance of microbes in your Michael buying so unless those microbes that you're taking as a probiotic can come in and create balance and affect the other hundred trillion you're not really going to be any any beneficial long term the facts and so our focus has been number one let's get one that survives through and that the spores do that beautifully and then all questions six years ago it yet they survived but can they affect the other hundred trillion bacteria that are in the system and sure enough we publish two studies now that show that they do increase the diversity and the balance of the good bacteria in the rest of the microbes that are that are in your system so that that's true of practical biotic when they can get there and then perform that really important action of balancing the rest of the population is that a precision probiotic or or prebiotics yeah I mean I don't on the starbase probiotics that is identified as a precision bass probiotic prebiotic no in that's more of us for bass port probiotic now the precision prebiotic of the is really important as well because the precision prebiotic gives you a tool to specifically inclusive book of really important protective bacteria in the gut right so prebiotics are just bacterial suit many prebiotics can be home for good factor and bad so they can be problematic they're managing your your Michael B. L. U. bacterial population is out of balance and you've got a lot of not beneficial bacteria or two overgrown levels of non beneficial bacteria if you just start going back to the bat population you could very well be eating that imbalance back yeah more so than the good bacteria right right with the precision pre biotic comes in the precision pre biotic is designed to specifically need certain good groups of bacteria now when you take a score based probiotics and then you add a precision prebiotic to it that's when you have your renewal success in modulating the microbial population that controls ninety percent of everything that happens in your system right now with the study we published in in August of last year showing that when you take the score based probiotics you combine it with the precision prebiotic then you get massive changes to that population of a hundred trillion plus bacteria in your system that favor health wellness and longevity and then I'm assuming that if you do that one two one two punch of support that everything else you bring in hopefully it all good organic foods and a lot of water and so forth you attain a better benefit of that because the whole digestive system is in balance and and you maximize the food and water that you bring yeah and that's that's exactly right you know what the old saying you know you are what you eat really not that it's you are what you absorb right so you can eat all the good you can take all of the supplements you want but if you can not absorb them through your gut lining which is inflamed and you're Michael belli are are shortened and your your vehicles are not functioning you've got the wrong bacteria that are not converting those important nutrients into the even more important nutrients in all of those systems are not functional then you can not utilize those those nutrients so all of the good choices you may be making all the diet choices you're making you're saying no to the cookies and the hamburgers and you're making the postulates of eating your vegetables right you're doing that but you're not getting all of the benefits from that choice if you're got into my combined isn't healthy any sort of how a wellness resolution you may care to start with focusing on the Michael by a score based chromatic precision prebiotic those two are at the foundation of the healthy and you're recommending just drive because this formula has this is the one that you've studied and have research on and you've been doing now for about the sport based probiotics about six years yeah absolutely yeah we started the first studies on it how about six years ago we have would now I think I'm were on a nineteen study many different area yeah we're just we're cranking it out where we really are focused on how we can improve human health through understanding the complex and yet ever so prevalent population of microbes that control everything you know if we don't do that we are ignoring ninety percent of who we are and what we are well Karen it's always great to talk you were out of time but thanks for enlightening us and thanks for sharing with our our listeners what you believe would be one of the most important resolution they could make this the number one thing yeah absolutely thank you we'll talk to you soon thanks thanks Karen we've is speaking with microbiologist Karen Christian on just thrive probiotics about the number one most important resolution we should all keep this year to improve our health and that's to take a spore based probiotics the one we like is just thrive every day to nurture the millions of microbes in our got that are involved in virtually every activity of our body like the wake your input at all those passengers yeah I have as a ship here you know it's estimated that nine out of ten Americans have absorption problems in their GI tract so they're not getting the full benefits of the nutritional supplements are the carefully chosen organic diet are all the other things that they're trying to do to make themselves healthy you know that's amazing because that means like that the only one out of ten are actually getting the nutrition getting the thing getting out so make sure got is healthy in our immune system strong really does look like it could be the number one thing we should do everyday to pay attention to I agree and you can.

"Back to healing quest I'm right walk and I'm Judy Brooks and if you're just joining us our focus here on healing because is a lipstick wellness and that means the latest in natural ways to help us all live longer happier and healthier lives no nutrition is a big topic for us here on healing crest in as we wrap up this year we have a couple of interesting items to pass along to you today starting with researchers from the university of Georgia science is there have identified the part of the brain that triggers excessive food intake which is interesting they say it's a as circuit in the hypothalamus that for example makes it impossible actually to resist the aroma of fresh popcorn and then lead you to buy a big tub of it even if even if you're on a diet yeah you know that's kind of weird never happen to me yeah right and Kay well the result is called food impulsivity and scientists say the new discovery can help develop therapeutics to address over eating the next time it happens I'm is gonna go there's my hypothalamus again running away with me and then from you well from UC San Diego comes a study delivering new details on the big benefits of time restricted eating which we've been talking about here for some time on healing quests periodically now this study concludes that limiting food intake to a consistent ten hour window every day can pay big dividends in weight loss lower blood pressure and lower cholesterol researchers say the controlling the timing of food intake supports our circadian rhythms and optimizes our metabolism but it but to make this work generally think about the ten hours it's easy it is well so like if you could have breakfast at nine o'clock in the morning you should be done with dinner at seven which is a challenge for some reason you and I find ourselves dining at eight thirty so this this would be another reason for us so like you know motivate ourselves to their earlier well we're better I don't know about all of you out there but I mean I think we'd earlier in in the winter they might do in the summer when when we have more light you know there's more reasons to be out exactly doing other things so I I do think that it's it's easier to follow that ten hour rule in the winter well most you'll have the breakfast by eight nine really thank yeah okay I don't think that this is a lot easier than I thought okay easy peasy living you've heard us talk a lot about here on healing quest is the concept that food is medicine and we truly truly do believe that and and you've heard to say at many times if you listen to the show or watch television so you've heard us say that we've all been sold a bill of goods when it comes to the low fat no fat mantra that's been aimed at us for decades now pretty much decades I know we start talking about on the television show hello many years ago yeah this fat phobia has led to many problems including the huge and growing epidemic of obesity we talked for many years about the need to get smarter on this topic into a knowledge that we all need healthy fats in our diet we got a really revise our thoughts about our opinion our concept about fats and how important they are I think I think people are getting that but it still it just really slow yeah when I see everything on the shelves in the story that say no fat no fat no fat no fat and it's things that you would expect to have get the good fats and you know like some of the dairy products and you need the good fats for your brain our brain is made up of so much that we need it so the concept of healthy fats is by no means been widely accepted unfortunately which is why is the wrap up this year and this decade we want to remind you about a major study from a highly respected academic source that sharply and unreservedly contradicts what we've been told about this and lays out very clearly the major change that's needed in the diet of all Americans it's from a study by the university of Texas health Science Center in Houston which unreservedly recommends full fat milk cheese and butter and in fact says certain types of Jerry fat may help guard against a stroke so this flatly contradicts federal guidelines which recommend low fat or no fat dairy the Texas that in fact says full fat dairy does not increase the risk of heart disease and in fact may lower the risk of heart problems the reason which is also pointed out that low fat dairy products often include lots of added sugars which you know which we know lead to poor heart and metabolic help so the study's lead researcher say quote our findings not only support that significantly strengthened the growing body of evidence which suggests that Jerry fat contrary to popular belief does not increase the risk of heart disease or mortality in older adults what we've been saying that for a long time and so is our guest today she's where this curve actually the the study's author also says quote in addition to not contributing to death the results suggest that one fatty acid present in Derry may lower the risk of death from cardiovascular disease particularly from stroke the study evaluated data over a twenty two year period and was funded by the national institutes of health and the national heart and lung and blood institute is a very big deal because for decades Americans have heard about how bad fats are for them hints the low fat no fat craze but increasingly the concept of healthy fats has been gaining traction and one national leader in that movement is.

"I am Judy Brooks and I'm a walking horse than welcome back to healing quest if you're just joining us our focus is listed wellness optimum health and the latest in mind body medicine we try to have the latest in mind body medicine as much as we can the one thing we we talk about frequently here is using the mind body techniques to keep us all healthy and one of my favorite techniques is affirmations because I think they can really be a powerful tool when it comes to it self care and if you've been listening thank you we we appreciate that then you know we've been exploring different ways that we can take better care of ourselves here in the past few months and one of the things that I think we talked about a little bit before our affirmations and they were worth talking about again because I believe in I believe in them but you explain them better than most people well I was introduced to them probably over thirty five years ago with Louise Hays books and I can't recommend them more highly and that that's something that will teach you a lot about affirmations affirmations are those positive specific statements that help us visualize and make positive changes in our life now this may sound a little rude to some of you but on our TV series we got the chance to spend some time with Candace pert a world renowned scientist on the brain she had a variety of research positions that major institutions including chief of the section of brain biochemistry at the National Institute of health by the way she was the only female cheap at and I M. H. C. was a rock star scientists I just have to say she also founded a major biotech lab and was the author of the molecules of emotion which was based on her trailblazing work about that neuropeptide that our brain continuously releases as you told us these biological messengers communicate constantly with every tissue every organ in every part of our body that means our feelings are really just chemicals that can either help us or hurt us I like that when she said that you know so here's Candace pert said exactly that's what she told us affirmations work because the brain is constantly being formed new cells in the brain are constantly being made so if you can be lying in a relaxed state you can really have major ships while you're hearing and thinking positive suggestions now up cells die naturally and new cells take their place and they can go along the same route or they can also have a very sudden and dramatic transformation depending on how we intervene with our intention and our consciousness toward healing if you're just joining us I'm Roy walking horse and I'm Judy Brooks in your listing healing class and we're talking about the power of affirmations when it comes to self care you know this is really interesting because we interviewed Candace a long time before we did that series on brain health and we did that years and bring help just a couple years ago we heard exactly the same thing the brain is constantly making new cells for a long time that was not believed to be the case but now you know what Candace said has been confirmed by all these other experts that we talked to just a few years ago I I really like that because you know here's a scientist telling us that you know this is not a new thought leader that thinks that this is a great idea this is science so here's where you use affirmations you can use affirmations in in any situation where you'd like to see a positive change take place these might include times when you want to raise your confidence before presentation or an important meeting or maybe you just want to control negative feelings such as frustration or anger or impatience I don't know if any of you ever get impatient but you know I can imagine maybe if you if you do or maybe just to improve your self esteem or finish projects that you've started in yet procrastinated and haven't finished and then you you give yourself some positive affirmation it really does improve your productivity affirmations are often more effective when they're paired with other positive thinking and goal setting techniques like for instance affirmations were particularly well along side visualization and what I mean by visualisations actually seeing the pictures in your head and visualizing an outcome or visualizing what it is that you're working on instead of just picturing the change would like to see with visualization were also saying it aloud using a positive affirmations of seen it and saying at the same time really work so affirmations are also useful when setting personal goals so say once you've identified the goals that you'd like to achieve in in the short and possibly the long term you can use positive affirmations to help keep yourself motivated in order to achieve them unfortunately he can just passed away several years ago and she is really missed by scientists all over the world and we certainly Mister but her findings on the molecules of emotions and affirmations continue to be highly regarded I mean she was such such a pioneer and she was also one of my favorite interviews because she was so playful you don't always get that with scientists you know they're not they're not all that playful sometimes but we didn't due to Cameri interview so we interviewed our guest sitting next to the camera and I remember she was like what your camera with me and she caught up at the end of the interview and she pulled me over to her and gave me a big hug and she said see they need to be seen your big smiling face here I mean everything was just so much fun right I mean it wasn't like we weren't in you know like I wasn't in the story that I was doing he saw me in the lab with their and other things that she wanted me like right there with their next door and it was just she was like a little kid I love that now one of the ways affirmations are used a lot is when people are healing in fact our friend singer song writer Karen Drucker and again if you listen to the show often you'll hear us playing a lot of Karen's music and she has recorded several songs that are basically affirmations and one of my favorites.

Going green: Ethiopia's bid to plant four billion trees

"So about a month ago we talked about a new study showing that trees could be a critical piece of saving our planet from the devastating impact of climate change you discover something from some Swiss scientists right right interesting study out of Zurich in which they say that increasing by fifty percent the number of trees on earth could capture two thirds of the carbon that's been released into the atmosphere by human activity and that carbon is really dangerous out there so of these trees could take care of that would be a big story on earth I think you're telling me that the study's co author says forest restoration is probably the best climate change solution that's available today yeah so yes which country has really stepped up and taken action taken the lead really the world widely all right you're not us really Ethiopia probably not the name you were expecting Ethiopians last week planted more than three hundred and fifty thousand trees in twelve hours the prime minister is one who actually gets a lot of the credit for creating the initiative to help restore Ethiopia's landscape because it's being eroded by deforestation and climate change if you're just joining us I'm Judy Brooks and I'm more walking horse your listing human quest and we're talking about a major effort that one country in the world is taking to protect our environment by planting more than three hundred and fifty thousand trees in just twelve hours well the country that we're talking about is Ethiopia and their larger goal is to plant four billion trees by October of this year so that recent study we talked about found that planting billions of trees around the world is the cheapest and most effective way that we can tackle the climate change I mean come on guys this plant some trees trees absorb carbon dioxide which otherwise traps heat and contributes to global warming so we'll worldwide tree planting initiative could remove a substantial portion of those emissions in fact the estimate is the planting area of trees the size of the US could remove two thirds of the man made carbon pollution that's been pumped into our atmosphere over the past twenty five years that's amazing that would be wonderful so thank you to Ethiopia for leading
