Dr. Peter McCullough: Spike Proteins by Vaccines Could Be an Issue

"For a guy like me who's recently hopefully recovered from lymphoma I'm in remission now And my wife was an autoimmune disorder herself and lupus If that turns out to be the case and I understand some preliminary study you know you were very cautious in your approach to it as well But if it turns out that we are producing spike proteins long term What could that mean for people with autoimmune difficulties and people with various types of cancers blood cancers and immune system cancers I think it's going to be a matter of degree If it's one or two shots and it's echo cells and there isn't much passage to daughter cells this thing can in a sense burn itself out or be cleared out over time Bruce Patterson who leaves a company called Intel DX doing terrific work is formally professor at northwestern and Stanford He's actually shown in the respiratory illness that the spike protein is in the body a long time to end but up to 15 months in CD 16 positive monocytes And I did have him on my show and I asked him about what has he seen in vaccinated people And in fact he does have samples He's seen both the S one and the S two segment of the spike protein in humans after vaccination as long as he's observed them So for a month I asked him I said can you predict how long it's in the body He said probably over a year SARS CoV-2 the virus And then the spike protein installed in the body with vaccination It has a persistence in the body That's the reason why people feel bad There's a long COVID syndrome And I estimate is there any other infection that's similar to this He said yeah there is I said what is it He said Lyme disease Lyme disease does an install of the organism called borrelia bardia It takes forever to clear out lime That's the reason why people get this post lime syndrome So I think people who are immune deficient people with lymphoma they've had chemotherapy or radiation or they have other autoimmune illnesses This could be a

What is Fungal Overgrowth?

"Got a growing condition. Our side he called small intestinal fungal overgrowth and just in general mold and other biotoxins which are basically living organisms that that end up eating different things in our body and creating endotoxins that signal inflammation in different regions of our body. These are these are really really problematic. So mold and yeast can cause major issues including a condition called chronic immune response or chronic inflammatory response syndrome. Sirs lyme disease and other really common one viral infections in then bacterial endotoxin so certain bacteria release things like lipopolysaccharide rides l. p. s. which creates a very potent inflammatory process in our body. The reason why these things are so damaging our system is because our body is hardwired for survival. And we know that sepsis or chronic. Systemic infections have killed more people throughout the history of mankind than anything else and so the way that our body has adapted to make sure. We don't die from bacterial meningitis. For example is that we create this really potent inflammatory process whenever we feel threatened and so when it comes to mold and mold spores or yeast like candida that releases things like leo toxin and Seato outta hide And you have lime disease parrella and different things like that and the toxins that they release viruses that are damaging cells and then the l. p. s. from bacterial endotoxins reasons are released. The body says i'm under threat. That this is an organism that can kill me quickly. So i need to create this really strong inflammatory process and inflammation is the reason why as humans that you know in a sense from physiological perspective. Reason why we've been able to adapt however what we need to adapt to now is really being able to control and modulate or balance the inflammatory process from these biotoxins and so this condition of small intestinal fungal overgrowth in. It could certainly happen in a law. The large intestine as well. However it's very very common for candida in different east organisms to overgrowth different Different mold yeast like organisms. I guess you could say To over to colony in the small intestine

Study Shows Mix-Match Method Boosts Immune Response of COVID-19 Jab

"An important and eagerly to study into co vaccines published his initial findings. This week the kamkoff trial run by the university of oxford has been looking at the effectiveness of mixing and matching between different cova jabs to see which works. Best for instance is a dose with astrazeneca's vaccine followed by an orange vaccine the jab. At least as good or even better than two doses of astrazeneca to find out matthew snipe recruited just shy of nine hundred over-fifties who included people with preexisting health conditions and members of ethnic minority groups. This study was commissioned back in december last year before we even knew vaccines. We're gonna be using but it was already anticipated that what what we had to vaccines. And what if the problem with supply at one of them could be then swap over there and completely station. 'cause his with the vaccine since all about looking see how we could make the immunization roll out and make it more robust to cope with any unexpected events. But when you did the study what did you. Measure measure the antibodies. And also t cells. The white blood cells that are unimportant on the immune system and the participants didn't know which vaccines they received. A a blinded study from that point of view. So that was really kinda good way of getting accurate data on what reactions they were experiencing and any safety concerns. They have uncritically. How long did you leave between the doses. Because that's the other issue isn't it. We've seen this go from one month when we first started rolling out vaccines to twelve weeks in order to maximize uptake quickly and then to be shrunk back to eight weeks for certain groups in the community again. Now what did you look at. That's right with being kind of thanked by this long when we plan to study with a full week into full and then as we're back to get going they got changed to make that up to eight to twelve weekend so for about half of participants getting vaccines at a full. We can devote an half receiving it a twelve week into so we get depressed. The whole broad range there and get an idea to save changing. The interval makes any difference in the interactions between the

How Mold and Environmental Toxins Damage Our Brain and Body

"I love how. We ended up connecting. Because i had put out a call to a few other practitioners that are in the space and somebody recommended you for your deep expertise when it comes to all things brain and especially complicated situations and i think mold is one of those things. That's in that complicated category. Because there's just so much. That is not known. I often think of mold as You know the early days of lying disease. People didn't weren't even sure of lyme disease was a real thing in the early days or was it all in people's head. How did you become to be an expert of complicated things but especially when did mold specifically get on your radar yes That's a great question you know. If you had asked me ten years ago that i would be taking care of patients with complex environmental illness and mold illness. I don't think i would have believed it. You know it's been a bit of a journey. I think My whole career. I've been interested in how to improve the care of Patients with a complex chronic conditions and initially had been doing it more through the conventional side of medicine with really the last company that i helped to start and build a group that took a full risk global competition for medicare advantage and We were building primary care centers in the inner city For a lot of patients who had been uninsured but know with my own health and with the other friends Around me i could see that.

Should I Use Lime or Fertilizer?

"Do you think if someone was going to go to the effort of putting lime on the lawn they they might as well instead just just feed it. Well, that's kind of where I stand, I'm I'm big on fertilizer now. I don't mean a whole lot and I don't mean excessive at all even to the extent that I'd well. My loan is now cared for by others. I I cut them back on the number of applications that fertilizer they wanted to used they want to hurt my lawn, but I knew from past experience and soil testing on this lawn, many years ago that the excesses I felt they were excesses cut them back from 5 recommended to 3 and my phone is nothing special but it looks pretty darn good right now because it has been cared for with two applications already this year. It's I motala infrequently the last month. The grass is probably standing for four and a half inches tall doesn't look very groomed. But it's just as green as green can be because it's shading itself. It has nutrients and so on so long. I have to go with your question that Mark I'm more for fertilization and balanced fertilization timing-wise as well as the material itself rather than have to worry about Lyme. However, I'm certainly not opposed to it because many many many thousands of Acres of Farmland in this area are definitely given a shot of lime so often so based on tests you go from there.

Thank you so much here I go with Jordan Younger Albrecht. Jordan welcome back to the podcast how you doing had. Jesse. Thank you so much for having me back. I'm doing really well, I'm excited to talk to you today I'm excited to chat with you too. It's I went and looked back at our previous episode. We did with Marnie there and it's been years. So a long time and a lot has happened in both our world. So back when we did that last episode, you weren't married now you're married, you've had a new diagnosis lyme disease and you're back on the Vegan Diet. So lots we can get into. Yeah. Life has changed a lot. I remember recording that with you. Guys in my old apartment where I lived alone with my cat and life has certainly changed quite a bit since then we'll at that time we did that recording it seem like your health was in a pretty good place for a timeline point here let's let's talk about where your health was at at that time. Yeah. So I may have thought my health was maybe in a good place, but it was around that time. I'm trying to think around three years ago. Exactly is when my health started to decline and really take Depp I think when we talked may have been maybe the very end of me feeling pretty good and. Then I started to experience different symptoms like full body hives I had a uterine cyber ahead which I ended up having surgically removed. I started to be very chronically fatigued, but I do believe when we last spoke I was still holding onto the final shreds of feeling good or saw it and then yeah things kind of exploded from there. So toward the end of twenty, what would this have been twenty would have been twenty seventeen that we chatted. Yeah. Toward the middle to the end of twenty seventeen is when these health issues started popping up and I was very confused about all ams and what was going on and. At the time it didn't even cross my mind that all of these health issues could be intertwined and could have the same root cause thought my entire body was just breaking down bit by bit and piece by piece, and ultimately what I finally did realize the following year that this was all the same root cause similar root cause and I was diagnosed with lyme disease then I realized okay. The hives, the fatigue, the brain fog lack of energy. The fiber that I had hormone imbalances got issues. All of this could be drawn back to lyme disease switch ended up being a chronic lyme disease diagnosis meaning that I had had my. For, at least a year. But when I look back on my life, it seems that I actually had lyme for more like both likely a decade dot was a pretty wild time in my life and I'm sure we'll get into all the details, but I've been treated for the last two and a half years and it's been quite a journey. So after we talked and the symptoms started to creep up on you what was. The first step you did before getting diagnosed, did you were you already seeing a doctor at that time that you brought these issues up to or did you find a new doctor? What did the path look like to getting that diagnosis? So I was seeing a few different doctors at that time I've always geared toward a more holistic approach. So I was seeing a functional medicine doctor which really combines Western and eastern medicine practices. I went to my functional medicine doctor and he really didn't know what was going on. He saw the hives that I had all over my body which were so itchy. So terrible. So read they lasted for ten months and during that time I couldn't even sleep at night because I was so itchy I was in so much pain. It covered every single inch of my body except for my face. And my feet actually it was on my face to just not as bad as the rest of my body

The other down under yes so I forgot to ask before but in the comments. Tell us where you're from. We'd love to know. See who are friends are this evening? And if you know somebody else who would like to know about lyme disease and the Carnivore Diet? Invite him to come join us. It's going to be a great conversation. Orion need to say this at the beginning of your countdown. Time to type in. Get the comments up there. Make a note for next time. I don't have anything else to say. All right. Well I can tell everybody a little bit about Jen. Yes let's do that. In the meantime the comments listener where you're from so two thousand nine. John's been Keith. Fell off a horse which sparked a neck pain that lingered and surprisingly traveled to other parts of his body. In Two Thousand and eleven. He received a lime diagnosis which sparked a years long quest for proper treatment and lasting alleviation of symptoms and despite finding a line literate doctor who was willing to prescribe term antibiotics. It wasn't until John Found Cannabis for lime disease and healing line by Dr Brunner. That keeps symptoms finally turned around then discovering the Kito Diet and then the Carnivore. Diet has finally turned Keith to full health. After finding what worked for her husband John was inspired to help others with chronic lyme disease today she works as an herbalist and a certified health coach excellent. Hello Kathy thanks for joining US Kathy from New Jersey and anybody else tuning in. Let us know where you're from we'd love to say hello all right. Thank you so much for using JEN. And we'll say goodbye to you for a second and we'll bring up all right all right. Piper. Now Jen welcome now. Thanks for having me. You're very very welcome. We the introduction. Okay so is lovely. I appreciate that you mentioned three main. Themes there for your husband's health and cannabis Stephen Brunner's protocols in his insights into Lyman co-infections and then the carnivore diet. Yes I think. Those are the top three things that we did. That helped Keith Remission We were got to a point where we were. Just desperate everything. We tried over eight years Just didn't work He was on antibiotics through the lime litter doctor but he wasn't getting better And he was still getting worse And I just kept researching and researching researching and found this book by Shelley. White about using cannabis for lime disease and then she mentioned the Buehner Protocol and so then I got Brunner's book and Designed a protocol based on these books based on what I learned and you know. That's a really scary moment. When you're you're your love line is you know. We didn't think he was gonNA live. It was that points like House Bounds. you just unable to be with the family And out of desperation you know not knowing anything just designing this protocol and giving it to him and then in a few weeks to maybe like a month noticing the difference and noticing that we were on the right track and It was like a Miracle That so interesting. A one of the things we're tempted to do. Is We get attached to our protocol or attached even to to a health practitioner right. We'd like them. We think they have good ideas. They're caring for us and we keep we wanna stick with something right and give it a fair chance and my question is like how. How long do you give a protocol before you designated as thank you for sharing? But this isn't working right right and so. How long did you give antibiotics a chance? He was on antibiotics for a year. Okay Yeah Eh the IB is well. We're all just we talked about during the IV but all oil and then it just wasn't working you know and that after our experience and now you know working with other clients. I really think you should know relatively soon if something is working or not and I just say key everyone's different and keep trying until you find the thing that's going to work for you that's really A big part of this and it's hard it's work and it's it's frustrating but You know after seeing these things work Keith. You know after so many years of nothing working. It was pretty amazing to watch and to tell us. A little bit about the cannabis is was it. Inhaled was eating so before we found Keith was using cannabis but more as a masking of symptoms sort of idea. We didn't really realize you know the the power of cannabis as medicine because you know we. It's it's been nearly legal and people. Just use it recreationally He was kind of hiding it for me. Like didn't really want to admit that he was using it. And then I read this book and it just talks all about the medicinal properties and it just made it legitimized it in our minds like. Oh this could be medicine. And how do we best take cannabis as medicine And then we. We made a cannabis oil so infused olive oil and he would just take that As needed since his experiences. And I've done more research and training and cannabis I lean more towards microdosing and and finding your own Therapeutic dose out through a program. There's a website healer dot com. I did their training. They also have a lot of free information And it's just all about. Finding your own therapeutic does and it's usually a really small amount. So you're getting all the benefits of cannabis without any of the negative side effects And then I also prefer tinctures over infused olive oil so That's how I would recommend using it now but it's definitely medicine and it's The other thing that's important is finding strains that work for your goals so You know some people try cannabis and say oh. That doesn't work for me but you really have to kind of trial and error until you find that thing. That's going to work for you just to give an idea. How many different strains did you try? Well ally at the time when we were using cannabis for Keith. We were in New York. It's still medicinal cannabis is legal. It's really hard to get so we were not getting it that way So it wasn't like now we're in California where you can go the dispensary and there's all these lovely different you know different strains and you can pick and choose so back in New York. It was more about you know unfortunately because it's medicine and we should have access to it. Okay so you begin to see as you start experimenting with this. Obviously you begin to see some results from changes right. His his brain fog clear pain get better mood. What changed with cannabis so through the canvas and the beauty protocol together? Things got better He you know he was gradually getting worse all the time. And then once we hit upon those two things he stabilized and then just started getting better. So you know pain was better. Knock on but better Brain fog better but you know slur not gone anxiety better but not gone. So I feel that the cannabis and the Buehner protocol help stop the disease like help kill. The bacteria stop the progression of the disease but didn't necessarily restore his health. Who why and this is kind of drum roll section? So why do you think eating only meat and assuming is totally? Meet no plant and all just hundred out Lance France. How `Bout like animal fat? Is that part of it or is it really just protein mostly so so just to give context? We did the buehner protocol and the cannabis for a year. He stopped one. Yeah he stopped the well he also had surgery in the midst of all this so I think that was part of you. Know it's a little gets a little complicated but Once I was all done he stopped. Abuna herbs kept the cannabis but Then he was stable enough for us to leave New York and we started traveling but again his health was in better. He was better enough And we just kept searching and for the answer and I you know was fatigues end. Had gained a lot of weight from emotional eating. And you know I didn't consider myself unhealthy but I definitely wasn't where I want to be a and I felt like I'm forty six and I was feeling very fatigued and Just old and I thought that was my new normal based on ten years of stress and trying to run a business and raise kids and caretake for my husband so I was also searching for a way back to health and we found the Kito Diet and sounded super crazy. All the news will say it will kill. You don't do Kito but we were desperate. Once you've been through lime you're willing. There's a certain point where you're willing to try anything to get better. So I said how much worse going to get. Exactly what do you have to lose at that point so we did? Kito for a month and I follow this woman and I cannot remember. I should plug her but I can't remember instagram name. But she her husband had brain cancer and use Kito for brain cancer and she kept mentioning Carnivore Carnivore and I was like. Oh Okay Carnivore. What is that because of course? I'm want to know everything so I started researching carnivore and found In the Carter World Charlene Anderson is one of the Most known she her and her husband been on it for twenty years. But she says she cured her lime disease twenty years ago through the Carnivore Diet so after and then at the same time as all this is going on. Kito Diet is working wonderfully for us. We're both feeling better. Keeps pain better losing weight like eight weeks week? It was amazing so at the end of that month. I said okay. This sounds totally insane. But let's try carnivore and Keith. Was a little resistant. Doesn't love red. Didn't now he does didn't love red meat. Didn't love eating steak But I said let's just try it. Look at these people. Look at this these success stories And so we tried the carnivore diet and again. Both of our health transformations his was incredible. His color came back which may be those of us that have been in the lime world. Understand how important that is. He was so gray for years and just his color. Coming back was amazing and again like a miracle where his pain resolved. Anxiety resolves You know just we both lost weight. We're both at our high school weights now Feel Great. My fatigue went away. His fatigue went away And I feel like that's what really brought his health back..

Usb cable how to get the data in from the devices if it's Bluetooth sync automatically if you can just punch these numbers in manually just takes a couple of seconds. So here's an example. Where I'm looking at my blood glucose and my hemoglobin a one C and it's telling me that in the last four weeks. My Blood Glucose is up four percent Emma Hemoglobin. Anc is down eight point nine percent so you can do any experiment you can say. Listen I WANNA see my hse. Aarp over the last four months compared to the last four years because in the last four months been on a AIP diet for example and will automatically tell you the percent change as you make those lifestyle changes so that's kind of how it puts all the pieces together and we really want to give individuals tools and then also tools where they can work with their healthcare professional to help them interpret the data because intimidating for a lot of people. But if you can if you can go to your functional doctor and say this is what I've been doing of change my diet. I've been getting more sleep. Here's my results. Can you help me interpret this stuff? So it just gives some objective data to start personalizing how you do things and then tracking if it's actually working or not. Yeah that's awesome now the other thing to mention because we have actually quite a few practitioners who end up tuning into the podcast and this platform also works on that end as well. And can you just give us a brief overview on what it would look like from a functional practitioners? And what are they using it? Does it take into account all the other lab tests. That can come in to do that. Automatically de details there well. It's important to understand that. We can synchronize an individual lab test results from most of the providers across the country. So let's say you're a functional doctor in New York Okay. Any other patient California or A patient even within New York for example that individual can connect their current and past medical records electronically so the first thing functional doctor can do is start to see deeper into that person's medical history and you can start to see the lab results from Stanford and UCSF Kaiser on hard warm chart for example. And that just gives you. Immediately ten fifteen years more visibility into win symptoms miss started emerging. Because as you know every doctor keeps a sliver of your health records so the first thing we can do is put that back together and then as a provider you can invite your clients or patients they can start to measure things like blood sugar. They can connect up there or a ring. They can start tracking. Hr V. They can start a nutrition and you can have access to that personalized. How Your Your coaching that specific individual? So it gives you all of the lifestyle metrics to help understand how you can improve the outcomes so it just puts all of that information for each of your clients on one dashboard. Hr Be Blood Sugar Hse R. P. Homocysteine and you can set it up differently for each client depending on what you're working on weight. Loss inflammation autoimmune. You're going to be measuring different things. We have toured a Franz racers that are tracking deep sleep and lactate threshold like really high performance metrics on their dashboard and we have cancer patients. That are putting by deep into. Ketosis to do things like slow the growth so it just gives you a dashboard to track all of those metrics holistically and what you what house ago. What YOU MEASURE GETS RESULTS THAN YEAH. What you measures managed a horrible. I have some family members that are let our auto immune. I'm able to look very carefully at heart. Rate variability at their blood sugar levels at their white blood cell count numbers at all of these metrics. In even with just a few mouse clicks can get a really good sense of what's happening with that individual day-to-day week-to-week in naturally powerful data. If we can put to use properly so we have a question. I think it's a little bit of confusion but I think you can help clear it up here from a friend of mine. Naomi mass she's Her husband's a physician and she's a functional medicine person also so she's talking about manually entering numbers and like from once. What sort of is and I know. You're gonNA answer everything but if you give her a little more detail that'd be awesome. Yeah let me give you a few simple examples. There a lot of people who already have devices sitting at home they have a perfectly good scale that they can be just stepping on once a week. In entering away reading they already have a good commoner. Maybe it's not a fancy Bluetooth model. Maybe they can't even afford a Bluetooth model just get any Olga commoner and you ban them to punch in their fasting blood sugar for a few days so you can see what their blood sugar levels are. When they're waking up maybe you also want them to punch him before they go to bed so you can see what their blood sugar levels are before they go to bed. Just that is going to give you incredible insights into a person's metabolic health and then being able to manually enter blood pressure. I've got a perfectly good Omron cuff at home. I've used the same one for for ten years and it was like fifty nine dollars and I just punch it in once a week and then you can also enter in lab values. So if you're working with a patient you might WanNa Punch in some of the markers from their old test. Especially if they're GONNA do repeat testing so you can start to look at those candied markers over the course of a few years and see if they're going down without having open three pdf files and parse through it all so you can enter the lab test results as well off functional tests or just regular old blood tests like hemoglobin a. One C. That's that brought to mind Question about non numeric data is. What if we're talking about somebody's mood we're talking about? Yeah I feel kind of good today or more because he journal but that space in between journaling and objective data as opposed to yes. I think there's a couple of components to that one is true form texts. Were a user can log in at. Maybe they're trying to record symptoms for like they wanna record an entry when they have a Migraine and maybe add some notes around what was happening at the moment. Might Agreement dollops because you forget three weeks later and then you're trying to remember when you talk to your practitioner always. Yeah and and so there's basic like okay. Here's what was going on when I when I had the symptoms and you can ensure that with the practitioner. So we're not you can keep it private or you can share it. So there's ways to just record that subjective symptomatic later as well and That's how we approach it in next to the analytic the heart of numbers do you take data from fitbit. Yeah so we spent a lot of time making sure. All of the the best digital health devices on the market are connected so fitbit garment or a Kito Mojo of with ings chronometer. My Fitness Pal. A Bio. Strap Leadej Jarvi. Because everybody already has this stuff the Apple Watch. Everybody's got an apple. Watch in an eighty million of them sold. And that gives you really good indications of how much physical exercise a person's getting and how highs their heart rate going on a day to day basis so all of that stuff sinks seamlessly for the Individual. And then you can share that with your healthcare professional you choose you know one of the things that I run into in my practice is that somebody will some got issues somewhere. Deep down in the gut and it takes a day or two for them to react to build up the inflammation or literally. There's a patch of actors down there that gets fat every once in a while and acts up so distance between when they eat the thing and when they have the symptom is not close enough to say. Oh yeah it was the cheeseburger hat or you know the Baloney Sandwich or whatever younger.

"lyme" Discussed on Lyme Ninja Radio - Lyme Disease

"Diagnosed my own lime disease when I know so it was really. I think a beautiful thing because I learned about it and then I was able to take care of myself and Feel a lot better. And then I brought all of this knowledge and experience back to Syracuse area and opened up my own practice and so I take care of a lot of patients with cancer. They're looking for. Integrative oncology consultations but also lime disease and also just disease processes or illnesses where patients aren't getting answers and they're really not getting the help that they need so and that's how the universe is Kinda guided me even though it's not exactly what I had planned right. It's it's Kismet. Something like that. Yeah it's it's funny. It's funny how the universe will do that. It'll either either. Gives you a nudge? And if you ignore the nudge it'll hit you upside the head right like getting. We both have had lyme disease. It's a major wack upside the head for sure it now. You've been doing this for awhile. What's your current thoughts on treatment? In what do you bring together in your clinic because one size never fits all especially with Lime Disease? And so what? What is the toolbox that you're drawing from so drawing from my experience and training but You know lime disease is unfortunately you have these two opposing guidelines or guidelines that are very difficult to merge in the struggle that I have been patients have many times as finding that happy medium. Okay and so My approach is to hear the patient story. You don't hear what's going on. Let them talk you. Give them adequate time to talk because they feel would. That's the major complaint. They feel that patients have is a not being hurt. I'm suffering and are not being heard so I'll review their records any testing that they had done before but will review it in their words do some tests and I again. I explain bill limitations of our testing which is a big problem. Lime disease primarily is at most clinical diagnosis and we have to follow you. Know what the clinical symptoms are. Even if testing is not helping all the Tom and I use herbals and I use conventional therapies such as pharmaceuticals if needed. But it's really catered towards the individual's situation and also as how how severe their situation is. So I use something kind of a level of functioning scale to tell me you know where on that spectrum. How sick they are. And whether we can maybe start with herbals or maybe. It's quite serious. What we need to start with both herbals antibiotics now. When I visited your clinic a month ago whenever that was you were preparing to introduce something. I'm absolutely fascinated by so first of all it took the tour may solve the the IV room and the end of the normal medical stuff. And then you told me about neuro feedback and I don't know if you remember my is getting about this wide because we've interviewed several people over the years about neuro feedback here on the show and it's a fascinating topic and specially given the level of stress that lyme patients and other chronically ill patients go under. It's it's the post traumatic stress right. It's the cell danger response however you want to frame it. It's their brains. Get stuck and something like neural feedback. Kind of it back to normal functioning to tell us why you're bringing you the way you're bringing this to the re practice until I think you're bringing in but why are you bringing the practice and what you're hoping to see and and have you started with patients yet to tell me more about that. Yeah so I. I've had my eye on neuro feedback for awhile but A lot of times at conferences they will bring vendors that. Have these complementary therapies that can help patients with their hair and at the last islets meeting which is in a was in November. I kept coming back to the system that was called clear minds and a clear mind system. I just kept coming back to it because it just I might instinct kept telling me this is a really important part because one of the hardest struggles we have in. Lyme disease is on getting the brain better getting patients emotions better getting them calm on because the stress is is tremendous. But you know this system fascinated me because it's not just limited to line patients but it's limited. It's it's expansive actually to a lot of different brain disorders and different diseases that can affect the brain so traumatic brain injury autism anxiety. Depression Chronic Fatigue Syndrome FIBROMYALGIA MIGRAINES so Income and then also line. So you know. The true test was sitting there on. Having you thought so I had my brain mapped. And then I actually had a few sessions while I was there. At the conference where we try to retrain the brain the rain waves and make them more in alignment with which what is considered normal function. There's different levels of functioning of the brain waves and I found it fascinating because even in a very short period of time I noticed a difference in how one perceives things even things like colors.

"One. Two eight three seven six four fi. You WanNa give us a call and and were currently Really since the were. Oh really down on staff so it'll take us a while to get back to you with messages because we have a lot of people calling about you. Know how corona virus and all that our patients and stuff so you know be patient will get you but where You know our responses a little slower than normal south and so as everybody else's so you're you're with company we won't hold it against you. Make sure they don't so greg. I know I promised thirty minutes. Were already ten minutes over there. Other questions in the comments If you have time at some point to swing by and an answer some of those otherwise I'll be doing that will. I'll be doing them anyway. But if you have time that'd be awesome but won't hold you to that all again. Just WanNa thank you so much really appreciate it and tell your family appreciate you giving up time to your important resource in. Thanks for being out there and helping everybody McKay. Thanks for making a you know getting the message out and help me to share what I have learned and I really value just all the great people that you've you know being able to share. I listen to just like well. I didn't know that learned. Do every every episode I hear from you. So it's very wonderful to have you you know. Keep continuing doing this for so many years to. You're very welcome. All right take care of my friend all right all right this Aurora. That was so nice to hear from him. Until is he yeah. I love listening to him. He just he's so generous with his knowledge. I love it What what really struck me is the distinction between treating the different stages of illness Really stuck out to me today. I mean. Obviously that's true with lime. It's like you treat a an acute infection with lyme disease differently than you treat with chronic infection. So it's interesting that you have to deal the same thing with the with the Kobe as well. Well it just makes sense. We don't think about things in terms of stages because usually we put things off but there's the pudding off stage and then they have to go to the doctor states right and so we don't find tune our approaches to things and specifically. I mean that's very Chinese Medicine. Kind of thing is their different stages of diseases and they literally thought of the disease penetrating outside the body so I would go into skin. Kinda be this halfway layer and then it would penetrate deep into the Oregon. So you have these that that baked into Chinese medicine and it's funny because right now the Western medicine there's a theory out there called the Cell Danger Response and the cell dangerous response really begins to take a look at the same idea that they're phases of illnesses and that you have to go through and and treated differently in the different phases. It's very Chinese medicine like but they're coming at it. From a completely a Western appointed view you know molecular attrition point of view of molecular disease point of view. More what doctors are familiar with. So yeah thanks for bringing that up already. That's going to wrap it up for today. Thank you all for joining us And Demi thieves who are now. We'll as soon as we can..

Lyme Disease and Other Tick Borne Illnesses with Dr. Sean Beckmann

"They we are talking about a subject that affects a lot of people and that is lime disease and we have assistant professor of biology. Dr Shawn Beckmann back on the show with us and if you remember he spoke with us in a previous episode about the corona virus. And today Dr. Beckmann is going to share some insights about lyme disease. Dr Beckmann can you tell me a little bit about yourself and watch you do sure? So I'm a biologist down here at Stetson University in Land Florida My obviously my main focus down here is teaching. But my research focuses on a tick-borne hagins so there are these various different bacteria or viruses that are transmitted by ticks. People we know about things like lyme disease for example And my main interest is in. Where did these come from? What are the organisms that carry these Different pathogens that ultimately Gets THEM FROM IT? And the tick can transmit them on from there. Ah Cry well we had you on before talking about the corona virus. And you mentioned you know what you do at your work and I thought Oh. Wow I know a lot of people who are going to want to ask you questions about tick borne diseases in boy was I right so in my group hope lively I ask you know who who has a question for Dr Beckmann and I was overwhelmed with all the questions they had for you so I'm just going to start at the top and we'll try to see how many questions we can get through So the first question People WanNa know is where do people get lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever? Okay so we've got a kind of two different sides of the same coin here. Both lining disease and rocky mountain spotted. Fever are bacterial diseases They're both caused by bacterial pathogens. And they're both spread by tics. But we get different ticks. That spread each kitties. So lime disease. Which is what. My research primarily focuses on is caused by the Bacteria Brilliant Bergdorf Ri- which is a bacteria that is transmitted in the eastern United States by the black legged tick and then out west. There's a related take on the other side of the rockies that can transmit it But that bacteria gets basically picked up by the tick from a rodent that it feeds on the carries that particular bacteria so not all rodents have disease in the rodents can't transmit the disease to people. It has to be transmitted by a tick. The tickle feed on one of these rodents we call it a resume war pick it up and then the tick carries that bacteria throughout its life and so whatever it bites in the future it could potentially transmit it to it can transmit it to another rodent and make another reservoir. It can transmit it to a dog it could transmit it to a deer or it could transmit it to a person potentially and that's where people get it from us from a tick. It's previously gotten infected by it. They pick it up when that tick them invites them in the case of lyme. That's the for the most part in the United States. We talk about the black legged tick that can do that. In the case of Rocky Mountain spotted fever that's transmitted by group of kicks called the dog ticks. So you have the American dog tick at the Brown dog tick and then the rocky mountain tick also are all capable of transmitting. That and that belongs to a different group of bacteria called the Recap Zia's And so we're we're catchy. I 'cause why not have a crazy name is that bacteria and that's transmitted by like I said a totally different group protects. Wow Okay so the tick transmits it to a rodent now if the a rodent another tip by sat rodent it it can get the bacteria from that rodent so ultimately to talk a little bit about. I guess the the kind of cycle we call this. The enzootic cycle the cycle within animals And so you imagine a situation where you've got a road that carries this bacteria and by and large the rodent is not affected by. They are kind of the incubator for it. Which is why we call them. The reservoir if a tick bites that rodent the tick then picks up that bacteria it the ticks on affected by the TIG carries it it gets into the gut of the tech and then ultimately it moves from the gut of take into the salivary. Glands of the tech takes only feed a couple of times in their life once during their first life stage there amid stage once during the second stage they're laurel life stage and once during their adult stage so if a tick nymph bites an infected rodent. Yeah it picks up that bacteria then when it goes to beat again as a larva feeds on another rodent. It's going to create another reservoir. It's GonNa create another road at now. Has that bacteria if Instead by say a dog it could transmit it to a dog. If bites a person it can transmit it to a person and so there's really the first two life stages it could pick up the bacteria and both of those life stages it can transmit it in any life stage later where it's after it's become infected so let's take feeds three times in its life and the first time it picks up the bacteria now it's got two opportunities to spread it if a tick picks it up in a second life stage. It's only got one opportunity. Spread it if it picks it up in its third lifestyle. Jet May be infected. But it's never going to spread it to anything I see so can a dog be a reservoir for the tick dogs and Dogs Endear and humans for that matter or what we call dead end hosts so what that means is we can get infected by the bacteria but it can't be transmitted from us to take to go to something else. Our biology doesn't work really well with it from a transmission perspective. On fortunately for us we are the organisms that can become a affected by that pathogen. So where's the rodents will get the bacteria and they live happy normal lives as far as we know and every research study that has looked at this as an experiment that has looked at this in rodents when they get lime or the bacteria that causes lyme they may get a little inflammation for a little while and then it goes away and they live normally with the bacteria the bacteria evade immune system and just lived normally in there but when it gets into a dog or a deer or a human doesn't do that with our immune systems will initially eventually recognize it would become symptomatic and we get an illness as a result of it And WanNa talk more about that later but Can you be infected by these ticks anywhere or just in these particular areas geographically? Great question and it's a question that leads to a lot of confusion because is particularly at all focus on line because that that is my area of expertise. I know about the others. But that's my primary area when we think of line we think of one if not two places in the US we think of the northeastern United States your your mid Atlantic and northeastern states. I A lime disease is named after a lyme Connecticut where it was I found. That's where we find a lot of it. We also get a big focus of lime in the upper mid Western. Us particularly Wisconsin and Minnesota but lime is found in all fifty states. It has been diagnosed in all fifty states including Hawaii and Alaska. Now does that mean. There's lots of Lyme disease in Alaska. Probably not there's probably not in Hawaii either. Those are probably people that went somewhere else. Acquired it and then went home and got diagnosed with it at home. But within the contiguous United States within the forty eight states Within the United States proper lime has been identified in all of them identified all of them on a regular basis. Even if it's at a low incidence so you don't have to be bitten by a tick in New York for example to get lime disease if you buy tick in Florida and that kick is carrying brilliant door fry. It has a potential to pass it to you and so even though there's areas in the US really prevalent it is found throughout the entire.

"Having me. This was great. Great Shoe saying some amazing things about treating lime disease at the end. But I'm actually going to more towards the beginning of the episode when she was talking about mass L. Activation Syndrome. And it reminded me of our old friend that. Weird Goose Syndrome. Royal thing Chinese medicine. Yes you know. The whole point of Goose Syndrome is to convey to the practitioner and the patient that it's very difficult to treat syndrome right that it's this is not something that you're GonNa cure sweated out and then feel better the next day. This is a battle that you're in and the image for Goose Syndrome is that oil has seeped into flour and mix together and then that the practitioners job and the patient job is to re separate out the oil in the flower as you can imagine. That's a very difficult task. So these chronic diseases inflammations get set. Up can be tough. It can be done. There is hope that it's not a life sentence but it's not the type of thing it's not. Excuse me an instant fix right. There's not a pill for it there. You have to do many different strategies over time and change and adjust you know. That's a whole flight Ninja and think outside the tick. You gotta you gotTa do this like in India just a full frontal attack just GonNa Cause more inflammation and make you sicker so. He had to chip away at the edge. You have to be smart and sneaky like an inch and that's why we call this lime into radio as opposed to lime warriors so I understand the idea of being alive word. You know. You've got to be tough and strong and you're going out to fight this thing but really we want to refine that you have to be really smart and strategic about it so if you were you may Ninja. Were right on board. Oh and speaking of that so I've started. I'm on instagram well. No It's speaking about things that bugs me a little bit. There's there's a feed. There's a Hashtag on instagram for lime disease and of course. I'm clicking a lot of things with lime disease what says Joe Subscribe to this Hashtag rates and getting all these hashtags and to be honest with you. Most of these pictures are like a beauty pageant. They're all these you know PAM for. It's it's but it's ridiculous all these people. I don't read the exact. What's going on with everybody? Maybe everybody's recovered. But they're all young young women who look fabulous fabulous places and and talking about lyme disease and in all about it for those of you out there who are really struggling. That must just be depressing so when that don't just don't do it it's just it's not fake news. I'm not accusing anybody being fake news. But the you know a little bit goes a long way if you have a friend to inspire you something like that but to be hammered every day by people you know theoretically talking about lyme disease but really. They're talking about their fashions. That's just you know were there. You know upside down yoga poses and stuff like that. That's just when you can't get out of bed when you're up enough energy to brush your teeth. I mean it's just the distance between the two is too great. We one of the things we talked about a wild is a media diet. You know this might be something to consider if you find yourself looking at those things you know if they're your friends that's fine. I get it so maybe one or two of those friends in your feet but don't subscribe on Instagram to the Lime Disease Hashtag. It's unless you want to check up on what the latest fashions are all right.

"A call setup okay and in many cases the mass cells are involved in that process. Okay I think that masks so activation syndrome for most patients for many of the patient I should say most but many of the patients I see started very early in life. They had a predisposition for their immune system to react in that manner over time they had insults to their body that that caused the mast cells to get more reactive to all use a tribute tate in a way and every time they have an assault on them. They get worse and escalates with time. So let's take somebody who has some mask sell printing early on in life. Maybe that your genetic then maybe they grew up in a moldy house that a damp basement. they remember being sick lot then they move somewhere else and they either move into another place or it's a better place in their healthier and they're healthy for a while then moved to upstate. New York and they get a tick bite than they did know about the lucky if they know about where most most of the time. They don't know they've been infected with something and the worst again and and and they're living in a in a in a little mold. It's not as bad as before but as a little bold and it's an infection and it's an immune system that was already probably primed for this. You get this sort of recipe. Four best selected Centra and then the mast cells are off to the races they are just reacting distort reacting. I reacting appropriately. Their job mast cells. Are Your First Line of Defense for the environment? They help fight off foreign things foreign bacteria in her sights and he said mold and all that so. They're doing their job. They're trying to help you. You're infected. You had some old. But at some point they become inappropriate in this disease and casts Nassau Activation Syndrome. And now they are reactive. They're reacting constantly inputting patients in state of of severe debilitation. Once those masks does go and if they hit the wrong parts of the body it's it can be very severe so I the way I see. These processes is that they're big triggers if you don't deal with triggers you're not going to get better so if there's active line and if there's mold you've got her eliminate the triggers otherwise you're not gonna get better and and so those will be taken care of but at the end of the day you might still have masks lactation syndrome. I think this is the most frustrating piece in the patients that I see who have had chronic lyme and they've been sick for a long time and they've tried these and they've tried antibiotics. They've tried every protocol out there and and they've been to Germany and they're still sick. Okay and why are they still sick? And so the question I have is is it because the immune system has already become regulated and the mast cells are cannot be controlled and until you control them. They going to act like you still have line. The symptomology must have much of the symptomology that we see with the lime. Bartonella I believe is through the mast cell. I believe that what you're seeing is the mast so manifestation of the infection. So you can still have that without the infection because the nationals have been formed in a reactive so I have. I have a question in these. Chronic patients is mass so activation that's underlying it all now at this point and really the infections the triggers. The mold is all taken care of or is it really that there's persistent infection and we. We have data coming out of Johns Hopkins and elsewhere. That's telling us that these bugs are persistent. And and it's very hard to treat mold and it's very hard through You're not in a moldy environment because mold is everywhere and so media really is that there's still sick because there's still something going on but you still have to deal with Celtics. Where do you find emotional stress and trauma and anxiety as a trigger for missiles? I'm so glad you asked that because I I should have mentioned that. Would I'm talking about in thinking about their childhood or their their lifetime. Line Yeah it's it's it's actually unfortunately very common to have some trauma and trauma could be. The dog died. Trauma could be abuse. Trauma could be need. It's how a trauma could be a fight with the with a loved. One could be data right better. Yeah yeah it's crazy every body Way of coping with TRAUMAS differet. Some of it is very genetic. They're definitely some predispositions. Some genetic markers that have been found that predispose people to having a more difficult time dealing with trauma so those are the people that I think about just genetically. The nervous system is wired a little differently and they have a trauma. Trauma definitely is a trigger for mass so activation syndrome stress is definitely a trigger. And then you have that sort of setting the stage for other events that happen overtime. You mentioned genetics. Are you familiar with Bob? Miller's work in his system of looking at UNIX a little bit to use it in your practice I don't use his. I have patients who have come to me with that information. I think it's very interesting. I know that he looks at the histamine piece that I know that there's some supplements that he's using but I couldn't give you specifics if you ever want to give into it. Give me a call. Okay we're a part of his research team can use his system regularly and it just sounds like an interest viewers. It's a good way to get into. In fact he's he had to create his own chip. Dna test because it was using twenty-three may data and they just kicked out a lot of the snips that he needs really incorporate as well have to talk more about it for sure. Awesome the other thing. I have my notes here. It sounds like you're talking about the cell dangerous spots. I'm giggling. Yeah I'm giggling because you hit the nail on the head. I think I think we're all talking about the same thing particularly in different things and I'm hoping there's going to be a time. I don't need to pull it. Casts. I don't need to call mass cells. It's my way of understanding. It is what I'm seeing but I think we alternately all have to put our heads together and really understand what this is that we're seeing and itsel danger for sure but I think it's it's even more than that and so. How do we describe that and understand that? Now that's haven't read the source material yet. I've heard Neil Nathan speak a few times. I interviewed him once. I have his book. He's trying to popularize the concept but I haven't yet gone to Peter Navio's work and really dive into it. You have to patch. You've got so much on my plate. Just fraud bad with it with an art with his. That's what I've heard that's awesome. You Begin to talk about your question is is. The mass are the mouse cells. Still activated is the immune system dysregulation from ongoing abuse over years or is it being currently triggered by something in the environment or in dodge. Nestle how do you begin to sort that out and I know that probably a week long conversation? But what do you look at? You know I think what we all. I have are markers so you know I've determined. Let's say you know. I've diagnosed the casts. And so I know it's there but I don't know if it's a you know what I'll call a primary and cast situation or whether it's a secondary so primary is starts childhood. These various triggers are important. They've made it worse. But the ultimate issue is really if you don't treat cast they're not gonNA get better versus secondary which is which it could also include pro. You can have primary and secondary you can have from childhood but then But really the the UNCAST is being driven out by this environmental dodgson endogenously like you said and now you have to. You have to deal with those so again. I have the diagnosis. Let's say for 'em cast now. I need to understand the environment a little bit better and understand if that is still a driver. So I'll look at mold exposure Mold testing if there's any red flag at all in certain markers in their blood or their if they have high micro-toxins I have a very low threshold to get to tell them to go. Get a mold inspection done on their home and And unfortunately very often we do find do we define things and in some patients They get the remediation done. They detox them. We do whatever we can to help of the mold and yet the mask so issue goes away. I have cases like that. It is mind blowing. I have a girl who was in high school. We just wish headline we couldn't we couldn't get the line. We definitely had mast cell. But guess what the the home was moldy. She moves out. She moves in with grandparents for for like a month her masks so she was gone. Her lime symptoms are gone right so that that is somebody who yes she only has underlying. Anka's I think just from childhood. I know that but it was being triggered and we got away. We got the trigger away better so so I have to look at that piece on. The infection piece is much more complicated so it's not always very easy to understand whether it's active infection or not and we know persistent infection exists in. How do we prove persistent infection in these patients? So what are alive. Call topsy unfortunately right right so so some of it is clinical judgment. Some of it is experience. Some of it is is looking at markers. I'm GonNa look and say okay. Let's let's put this together here. The symptoms symptoms could be okay. I'll give you an example. Let's say acute onset anxiety depression so we have somebody who is somebody who has headline and Bartonella has been treated but has some underlying cast has some allergies some other things. But it's doing okay. Took the antibiotics is doing. Great gets off the antibiotics or herbs whenever you're using and two weeks later two months later whatever it is accusing Zaidi psychosis right and you go. Is that m because let me tell you now. So Vicious Syndrome can cause psychosis anxiety and depression and all those things if you activate the nestles nervous system and if you have she added exposure. She has nut allergy so she ate something with a nudge yet an afflicted reaction and after the antic reaction a week later she gets anxiety. So is it M S. Is it just that the line is gone or is it m but the infection that we treated not gone persistent and I have to use my clinical judgment? No look at her lapse. I'm going to say okay we're GONNA get gen-x at that does tend to be my favorite lab so cannot pulse there because Jenex now has a whole menu of live. Which ones do you use? Do you just use your western blot to use their protein. Camaro shimmer whatever that's called where they put all the proteins together. What do you use so what I've been using because I feel like it really covers the bases but is extremely expensive. I will say though that in the last few months I've had patients who are telling me that their chooses covering a good portion of it now so that's a relief but they have this panel called tick-borne Disease Panel six.

"lyme" Discussed on Lyme Ninja Radio - Lyme Disease

"That's where the success is. GonNa lie when it comes to the treatment so all of this research. This amuses is slowly making its way to the top. I would say last year. They were a record number of publications on this and again went back to look to the the primary literature and I found a whole body of this where a lot of this was laid out in other words. This line of research has started but by Nineteen ninety-four stopped and that's because at that point it was decided that this was a disease. You know. Typical bacterial infection. There was no big deal. We didn't need to have any profound measures. They were you know. Even as early as that is an outline of research just went away many of them got out of the field and so the goodness it's still there. I mean it's not like it's not there to go back to refer to and Quebec. Repeat some of those studies with using better equipment. By the way I mean we now have really powerful technology. That would allow us to look at those issues. It all comes down to funding so as usual. That's always right yes. I was falling one researcher. She had published a couple of papers on the T. H. Want teach to differentiation and kind of the timing of that and then all of a sudden her publish shink stopped and tried to find. You know I'm googling this this research peachy and she looked researched. She's in some government entity in the mid West now and and not doing it and just like you said the the whole trace went cold. The whole lime for whatever reason just in the nineties just stopped dead cold right so I want to. Let's let's come back out the rabbit holes was maybe that was not a rabbit hole. Maybe it was this little mouse hole. So what I find in my practice is some practitioner some physicians out there just going straight to the western blot. The kind of bypass the Elisa problem. But that's not a complete solution either and can you help us understand why. That's not perfect either. Because the sensitivity of the Western blot is still the same. It's the specificity. That's increased with the Western blot. So you're still gonNA have the same level false negatives but you're gonNA have a higher specificity so in other words if you get a positive it's apart you know you're more likely that that actually Islam disease but if you get if it doesn't meet the standard don't forget that test is interpreted subjectively So in other words if you get four out of five bands on an Eugene it's negative you get five out of five if positive really so that that's the problem you're not improving the rate of false negatives you will improve decrease the rate of false positives but not the rate of false is and again early. Diagnosis is key to preventing dissemination of bacteria in place is that I. I don't know that I mentioned this once. They are established in two shoes. They are antibiotic tolerant. So antibiotic will no longer treat those infections. And that's why you know that this issues with long-term out -biotics weather use them or not i. I think it's just an area of contention where there are two camps so far apart when the reality is kind of in the middle. I think that anybody should be used judiciously. In case went flares happen. People should be back on those antibiotics but really the bacteria are tolerant. So it doesn't matter the ideas. Just you know turned down the problem for a while but if it comes back then you know it. Re-treatment would be necessary. And that's all lost in the argument of you know the argument over long term. Antibiotics do work versus long term. Antibiotics don't work and unfortunately that's a fight between infectious disease medicine. And everybody else on earth because they are the keepers of antibiotics. Yes we won't. Early diagnosis is the key is this is what we should be focusing on and we need a diagnostic test that will enable that. And that's what the research is headed for. I hope I mean I to believe that it is so now. So let's just wrap up the western blot in Nice little bow. So you're saying that. The Western blot is also about a fifty percents of the sensitive sensitive. Right so if you've got fifty percent going into the Elisa that fifty percent sensitive on the western blot you could be missing a lot more if you do the math right. So that's okay. So that's their other tests out there and some of them are just other Western blots some of them were were trying to track down to the R. A. Of the bugs of the PR type tests. So what do you think is out there? And it's okay with me if you name labs or you don't have to agnostic on that. I'd love for you to be able to do that. But if you don't feel comfortable that's also give you an out there like what so where where should a person? Let's say we have unlimited funds? We just got. We just won the lottery. So money isn't an issue. What tests and where should we go? Well I'm going to start with genetics lab Not a not endorsing them. I'm just saying the reason why there. They do the western blot. They do allies that they do the standard testing but what makes their test. Different is that they use. They interpret the tasks so that the two antibody bands that the CDC has removed from the test which happened to be the two most specific You know protein. Antibodies that there are the CDC does not include those I- gen-x does and so you hear this. Oh while the trespasser for it's like no because they include those two bands and I also WANNA add McKay with that lab something that really annoys me greatly when I hear anybody say well. My doctor says that lab is a fake lab that they you know they they give bad results and all that so in New York State near State has the clinical laboratory evaluation program clap so to ought to be able for physician to order a test. That test has to be licensed through club. So there is a whole certification process that that you have to go. This is only near upstate. By the way okay. So all there there's federal agencies that are in charge of this clear right you might have Rabat. Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act and others so in other words the. Us government is honest but and your state has special standard that labs have to you know. It's a WHO that lasts. Have to jump through if they want to offer their tests nor state. So what I want to say about. Gen-x is that Western blot. There Elisa is clap licensed in near State so if anybody has issues with the rate of positive or negative test results. They need to talk to near State Department of Health about that. Because they certify. That test needs their standards. So you know I. It just really annoys me when people say well. Nobody would take my gen-x results because of they you know they say it's the lab is that that is not correct and I try to make that point to everyone Just that they can tell their physician say look it up. Here's the clip license. Here's the you know. How do you dispute now? That they won't but how do you do that? So that is the next red herring. Yes yes so that would be if you know as far as the highest standard for the two tier serology. I would say that would be. That is certainly a place to go and by the way insurance does cover that you. You're it's just not something that you know another word you have to be reimbursed for it you pay for your insurance does reimbursed for that test so that's all stuff that doesn't seem to be out there in the general medical round. Okay so let's let's positive for a second so we're just talking about agenda. Two Tier Elisa Western blot. They've added in two extra bands. So there's looking at twelve antigens instead of ten and these are more specific for line. So it's a it's a more sensitive tests because it's picking up these other two two yes insider and but when you look on their menu they have about it. Looks like a hundred different tests for lyme disease. They and not all not all passed the New York state. That is correct. So what else is past interstate? Is there a test for tick borne relapsing fever? Which is Another relapsing fever is purely my motto. Which is Were realizing that that's here. It's been here a lot of people. may more people might have it then. was previously thought. But there hasn't been a great test for that because Berlin Mamata live does not get picked up by the two serology so now identified also has a test for T. R. F. which I think is a superb. An additive that tests should be done at the same time. That lime has done for that very reason. Because the ticks are positive for brilliant mind Matola and near State Don't know about other states but New York state I do know that so therefore guess what you know what looks like lyme disease might be brilliant. Matola disease like what? The test won't pick that up and so again. That person gets not diagnosed goes down the rabbit hole of late. Diagnosis equals bacteria. Disseminating equals Chronic inflammation Without right if you don't get early treatment so that is just another aspect of that and then you'd asked about other types of tests. I really think the need is for a direct diagnostic test on the problem. Is Bacteria at the bloods. The sample of choice which would be the easiest to get is of course of blood sample right. Everybody knows that every once in a while you gotTa Roll Your Sleep. Have a needle stuck in your arm and have long taken for blood tests So but the issue is the bacteria do not so the sparky's themselves are not in the blood for very long because the temperature of our blood is actually not conducive to their growth so their goal is to get out of the blood and into tissues as quick as they can. So that's why. Pcr is effective early in the disease which is kind of interesting because as an early test PCR has similar sensitivity to Elisa. So why wouldn't you do For those for diagnosis of those early cases But not everybody's GONNA THEY'RE NOT GONNA pick it up because again you you draw. You know five milliliters of lot if the bacteria are in also middle bill leading. You're not going to pick up the reaction So there are other tests like t cell proliferation essays which I think the name of that test alley spot those tests again. Before nineteen ninety-five there are the republication. Saying this is. This is a good way to go. Because the T. cells looking at t cell activation T. cells get activated before brilliant. Tells them you know. Find the activated. Just don't tell cells what to do so that that's very interesting. 'cause that those tests are available I actually don't know which loves do that here. In the United States I know that in Europe. That's a test. That's more widely performed You know there. There's the urine capture which is to detect So urine samples us which is another by fluid. That's not that difficult to collect Which captures antigens from Barilla's and others evacuated inner blonde get all that gets processed in of course everything in your body out through your kidneys not everything but you know what I mean off. And they can detect the antigen in urine and that was You know the series lab was doing that for a time and now that they've woman into the research realm and kind of out of the clinical aspects of that and they're trying to license the test to other places that appears to be about `sensitive as PR so once again sent meaning. You know we have not really gotten above that fifty fifty mark for any of you right. The one study that was done. Where all of these things were looked at in a comprehensive way in fact the title of Oracle. Was You know two year review of of a two year study of all of the different tests? What they found was that you could get the sensitivity up to like seventy percent if you did three things at the same time so if you did they elisa with a PR and culture if you did all three of those the sensitivity eight was up to seventy percent. This is serum blood right now so but the piping. How realistic is that in a clinical setting? Which you know right. So how realistic is somebody? Who's going to or all three of those tests and more importantly how realistic is the? The insurance company is going to pay for all three of those tests. Because they will say. This is redundant. There's no need for three tests to diagnose disease so therefore we're not gonna pay for that which means the patients have to pay or not and any and then it's still seventy percent so three out of ten or still gonNA be Thirty percent will go on to develop long term illness. Oh we're still talking about this. Forty Day window correct. Yes yes that's the that's just the absolute brutal part of this. It's right it's actually amazing. Anybody test positive while you know a lot of people don't I know I know that's the problem and then make developed chronic disease symptoms and nobody thinks to talk about that because anybody's aren't produced in the first hour. You're infected. They can take. What is it for seven days or even longer to get enough quantity to be to be picked up. So what's what's the timeline on that while and that's unknown because in the studies on Animals Nanyang primates and mice. The responses in the exact worrying is slow and Herodotus slow meaning and this is something that's a noted I mean it's not like.

"Or my dreaming that that's right. Yeah but we really able to talk for briefly and what I recall for last conversations is that you're very interested in the status of testing about lyme disease and the other critters that come along with it and around it and I would love for this to be an in-depth cut almost to`real for people just to get a good solid foundation. You're you're the triple threat in the line world you're a rockstar. I wish you know you really are you. There's there's no doubt about it. There are other people in individual niches. That may have more knowledge. But you're breadth of knowledge and your personal involvement with lime disease and on the policy. Side too is. There's nobody out there. There really isn't it's so you're you're a treasure and I treasure you. Well thank you. Mccaffrey shape that so every once in a while I get to the point where all right. I've done what I can and you know. The ball is rolling. So hopefully it'll roll all away the rest of the way you know. I think we're almost at the top of the hill and you know it has to come down the other side. It's really medicine at this point that needs to catch up You know I really believe. There's no science. They're just that that you know people get stuck on the issues of antibiotics of whether or not using -biotics weather not long-term Balasore Effective. And you know they are and they aren't. They worked for some. And they don't for others and what we need to do is investigate for those that. It doesn't work for instead of assuming it's a one-size-fits-all cure you know. And so hopefully that. I really feel that once people once. It's more clear who has the disease. Who doesn't you know the all this will open up a little bit broader. I hope I mean at is my sincere hope. Plus one over here. I was just listening to a podcast. Peter podcast the driver. You're familiar with that at all. No not that one now. Anyway so he was talking with basically a weight loss specialist a about weight loss and they were getting into. You know what's the Best I love of Blah and they started talking about fina types right in terms of different kind of how people react to different weight loss programs and calorie restriction and carbohydrate restriction or fat restriction in. What way to go. And they're in the same boat in that they feel there is no one size. Fits all.

Whats driving the explosion in Lyme Disease in Canada?

"Today disease a complicated disease that we are having trouble testing for a disease. We never expected to see with any regularity in Canada only to realize perhaps too late. Maybe that was Donald. No this is not a new virus from across the world world. It's not some weird superbug. It's not particularly contagious illness. You probably don't think much about until it makes headlines because somebody famous something was wrong with Justin Bieber last year and we saw him with visas. Arm We we now know what was going on here. Justin Bieber has lime disease but it is a mistake to think of lyme disease as a rare illness because all of the data we have and we still don't have enough shows that it is exploding in Canada with numbers of confirmed cases spiking every year. Get One guess as to why but even that is not the key problem here what we need to figure out and fast is a comprehensive way to test for your dial and treat lyme disease because that's where we lag behind almost everybody else. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story. Janet sperling is a PhD candidate at the University of Alberta. She is also a board member number on the Canadian lyme Disease Foundation. Hello Janna why. Don't you just start I think all of us the term but maybe just explain what what lime disease is sure. Lime disease is one of the more complicated things you would hope that I should be able to say. Oh lime disease is You know a bacterial curiel owners and it's transmitted by tick but unfortunately when you peek under the covers it gets a little more complicated so if you go to the government of Canada website. And you'll see that lyme disease is Berea Bergdorf Ri- and you say Oh. Okay that's nice and easy I can follow what they're trying to say but now if we just step over the border a little bit to Minnesota and we look up the male clinic they say lyme disease is four main species of bacteria and then they list four types of Berea so now you know your head is spinning you say okay. Well what do they say in Europe so if we go due to Europe and we go for example to Germany we see lyme disease is caused by spy. Rookie Berea Bergdorf. Wry sense allow to which means it's a whole bunch of different Burrito So this is part of the reason that we're ending up with a really complicated answer to what ought not be a very simple question. Why do various countries disagree so much on precisely what it is? That's not the case with most of viruses or diseases. I assume right and I think this is one of the things when I first started like you know back in the nineteen eighties and I took my medical entomology. They said lime disease is a disease it happens in North America. It's transmitted by so I wrote that down on my exam tonight. Got One hundred percent and everybody said great and I said to myself boy. I'm caught. I live in Canada. 'cause I don't need to worry about lyme disease but the more we started to find out notable lime disease and the more we realized it is actually in Europe. It's been in Europe for a very very long time for example You know it sees the iceman man who was found You know he's Bronze Age. I think you know we back in a gleese your those fraud. He had evidence of lime disease. So we know you you know. We've had lyme disease around for a long time. People just didn't recognize it as lime disease so the more you look into it. The more you see that this is something that's called us a Nautica Kasese so it's found circulating in the wildlife and then he kinda jumps over to the people although the disease itself Rigas and aiming for are people so this isn't something like measles measles something that goes from one person to the other person. This is something that's circulating in. It's got Birds is involved in this cycle. It's got animals. You know deer mice all sorts of things so this is why it just becomes more and more complicated. The more you look at it and and of course as a person who's suffering from lung disease you really don't care about all that background just saying I'm sick. Just get better and that advantage of being a bacteria tirrenia is that means we can use antibiotics so I think previously people were being treated for lyme disease without even actually recognizing was lime disease. assise they had antibiotics for some other reasons. They got better. Everybody said okay. I don't know what it was but they're better now. We're very concerned that we want want to make sure that we don't over use the antibiotics so that ends up making it even more complicated so we have the people we know they're sick. We know that got got bit by a tick. We know that something is wrong so some of the doctors are saying okay. We'll give them the antibiotic conceive to get better so those people all say. I think it's lyme disease and other people say I don't think it was on disease at all. It was something else it was transmitted by tick. But it wasn't lime disease so now we've taken a really complicated problem and we've really muddied the waters. We have people who say I have lime disease and other people who say whatever it was. It wasn't lime disease but I'm glad they got better so if the waters are so muddy and to your point the description you gave about learning about lyme disease in the eighties was precisely as much much as I knew about. LYME disease period Why are we discussing it so much more frequently right now? Are we seeing spike. Absolutely and I think it's certainly only with the global climate change we're getting the tick has expanded its range so you know back in the nineteen eighties. Certainly ticks. Albertus stopped about sort of middle. The problems you didn't have to go very far. Well now. They're all the way out into the Yukon. So this is something that's changed. It's it's new. I think we've always had you know a a couple of topics here and there and the other place but now it's much bigger. We know that most Canadians live right along the US border so we know most of our population is sort of super at risk as the ticks start moving north. Do we have a sense of how quickly the problem is getting worse like. Do you guys have have numbers on no matter how quickly the number of cases arising well we don't we don't have numbers because the numbers are set to be very very specific to Berea Maria br door fry and then it's particular string thirty one that somebody described in Boston Massachusetts lyme Connecticut down in that end so for Canada. It's kind of difficult to say can say you know if you're looking very strictly for one type of Lyme disease we know that the numbers have increased hugely sleep but we also know it would be kind of unlikely that we're just Columbia would have exactly the same type of lime disease as Boston Massachusetts. You know there's a latta kilometers in between the two and then also There's huge mountain range and then to make at one stage more complicated the even have different species of tick so this is where people get annoyed because they say I'm sick. I think I have lime disease because you treated me as though I have lime disease but still it's been denied as being lined disease or even anything like lyme disease. Why don't we have a simple test that can categorize it as one of what may be many kinds of lyme disease for instance right? Well we do if your dog so if your dog your jet can in Cohen tests the dog and say okay you have a sick dog. The dog is Being picked up to have this general sense of this says lyme disease lyme Berea of some sort so your vet will probably just treat your dog and say I'm calling lime disease good enough for me taking antibiotics and get better. Okay but humans but humans don't have exactly the same immune response so a dog has a much stronger immune response so it makes it easier when you're a VAT and and also with the humans. People are so readable antibiotics that you have to absolutely meal the diagnosis before they're willing to give you the antibiotics in the first place and that makes sense because we have talked on this podcast in the past about the need to not use antibiotics. Unless it's serious I guess what's flung meal. A little bit is that this can be a disease. That's it's on the rise that's diagnosed in many places around the world and they're still not the same kind of credible test that can determine like okay. You need antibiotics. Let's go right and I think partly it's because it circulates among birds. It circulates among various little mice and small rooms all the way up to deer and that each one of these animals. This part of this really complicated cycle the deer can actually clear the infection so for example if I had a tick and I knew that that had most recently fed on a bird I would be quite worried or if I knew had most recently said on a most but if I knew knew that the last thing that tick fed on was a dear I wouldn't be very worried at all I would say. Oh okay. Fortunately that's very low risk from that particular tech so this is where I think people especially if your doctor and you've got somebody and they have very nonspecific symptoms because that's one of the problems. There's nothing that's really obviously. This is exactly lime disease. You know you can't stand the front of the room and say okay. People have lime disease and these people don't have lime disease so oh you look people. They've got these nonspecific symptoms. And you're saying I know they're sick but I just don't know what it is. We're going to start looking at a lot of different things. So there's this a big list of differential diagnoses. You need to go through. And then when it gets the bottom of the list you always have lime disease. And that's something that was missed for for many many decades and for example I live in Alberta. And we're still told. Oh you can't have lime disease because you live in Berta but the silly thing is to people travel awful and when people are traveling. It doesn't matter where I live. Where my house addresses if I live in Alberta maybe got it in California maybe I got it in Toronto? Well in speaking of California you probably knew at some point in this interview. I was going to mention Justin Bieber. Indeed and it gets back to kind of the problem that you're describing reading because when celebrities like that come out and announced that they've been battling lyme disease it often seems like he has the best medical care in the world right. He compay millions of dollars for the very best doctors and yet still People were worrying about him for months before he came forward. Exactly and that's I think it's actually shiver common story and if you were to take your average Canadian. Generally they're healthy people. They're living their lives eating wells sleeping well plenty of exercise and and then suddenly something happens. They get sick and they don't even necessarily associated with tick bite and especially in a place where you're not expecting to run into ticks like downtown Toronto. You might not think about it and as you get. sicker and sicker and sicker. Lime disease isn't even on the radar so it takes long time to figure out what it is and the problem with lyme disease is if you catch it early. It's very easy to treat. Take your antibiotics into the story. But if you don't catch catch it and it goes on for a long time like weeks or months or sometimes even years. It's really hard to treat people were saying and this is why I wanted to ask you about like how it presents. How the disease presents because people were saying that it looked like Justin had lapsed and that he was an addict and that he was really struggling with substance abuse?

"And connect thank you down and chat for a minute. Thank you so much for being here today I am so I'm so grateful I think We met for the first time on the phone a few months back. And you absolutely wild me in those conversations spent we spent so much time talking about out what it would be important for this room to here and you know we are in New York City we are in an extraordinarily diverse beautiful city were also in with categorized as a lime endemic area. which is what you were talking about? I want to go back to the start of your your presentation. I want to talk about the invisible lime disease in the south. Can you talk to me about the the The endemic zone. I and Y Y you feel Beyond you know these these few slides why you feel that that that hasn't reached the level of awareness. That that you it feels important but we've gone to the factors. Don't really make a difference so one thing that sticks out and I could suggest best as that. The South is the home of the CDC and that is where the conversations about who's sick and who's well again do we have an example of what spirit medicine looks like coming out of the CDC. A template was ridden back in the forties with the experiment. Call to ski experiment and the Spirit Keep Disease in this instance was syphilis and in the writing of that historical historical journey with the CDC or the Department of Health and Human Services was a group of people with spiritual disease. Who We're we're at twenty five? The subjects of an experiment began like this one is there. You're a natural history that we can record by doing this experiment on spiritual patients and that decision was made. Yes we will proceed with that and already having a four hundred year documented history of untreated syphilis in the room for them to review then in a year into the study. There was a second report. This was a two thousand person case control study and that study and went on to say well whatever you do. Arsenic would probably accelerate used mildly and intimately accelerate the death of civilization and by twenty to thirty percent and there were another twenty years of using arsenic aggressively in this population. So then there was the penicillin that emerged later in the study that would have cured syphilis and in an experiment that was supposed to be associated with an option to treat. They weren't treated with Penicillin Salon after the Twentieth Year of the study. They were treated with the CBO. So this is the CDC handling in the south of syphilis a spirit feerick disease and I think that is a way of understanding why lime disease is is currently and Sal thank thank you thank you Going into the way that you practice. I'm I'm wondering if you can talk about the experience of actually going into a patient's home and going into going into their environment and making connections. We talked about this on the phone. I actually. I really loved this. The way that you're able to make connections. That wouldn't make necessarily in your office but help your diagnosis. So the Daniel Group began as mobile practice. Only and what that meant was entering space We live in the south. That is both sick and end sweaty so there are water intrusions and trouble with environmental exposures they take the form of mold and mycotoxin illness and that layered on top of line became one of the key factors that we discovered was keeping people sick and putting together a network of professionals to help them to understand the importance of that was very eye-opening part of our first years with the practice. I I think the food and the social habits came second. Nobody wants the doctor to walk in. And look the alcohol supply and to make assessments or your comments. But I think that it's tailing when the children have pink desserts and the adults are snacking on sweets At the table during the interview it was an opportunity to have a conversation and to do some work around how southeast which we know the southeast's yeah there was another thing. I think that the idea of one medicine which is zoonotic disease and the way we interface with animals. The South is a place that hunts and often in poor southerners that food is eat and the number of times that we talk about way to prepare venison. What animal is unacceptable? A six month old puppy or kitty is probably not a great animal to have in the home of an ls in stage. Line patient because we have the immune issues and those animals being factors it was. The story is always the tiger shark the catches the eye. But it's cute little kittens puppies. Please put us at risk. When we're talking about lyme disease now I want to? I want to answer. Ask One of the questions from the audience. I knew this was going to happen happen. I lost my glasses a couple of weeks ago and so I'm really having a hard time reading the confidence monitor so forgive me. So how effective are are deep products and protecting us Do you had you have experience with this. Well I can go on the the price of Eyelids that we get some coverage it's GonNa depend on how long between the intervals that we apply it. We have a lot out of new technology out there. That's not just chemicals For those of you. Who aren't aware there's rhino skin? which is a fabric where you're not exposed to chemicals that can protect you from most bites except Hornet the WAAS and they're very hot so some uh-huh difficulty implementing that in the southeast but up here probably would be a great idea? can go on the fabric and their companies companies out there that do a great job with multiple wash fabrics. That can be used so that you're not having to apply it regularly What type of infections do you see in your practice? And this is something that that you pay attention to that you're aware of so yes the co-infections co-infections and there are a broader cross section of CO infections in the southeast than what we're doing with in the the rest of the country although as for that they're all about the same so we see the Beezer we see the Bartonella re dealing more with Tula Ramia malaria and it's a rising vector. All over the country. I think it's about the same. We see early kids. The number one co-infection in southeast. That's the one that tests positive the most often but the testing in the suppression of one species expression in the testing when another one is present is all a part of this very dynamic dynamic reporting process with the tests so so earlier this the established species in south as dominant co-infection. But when you look at all of the areas there's a broader number in the southeast and can you talk to me about as as you work with these with your patients and in these rural communities do it has to do much educating about lyme disease in about these vector-borne illnesses or are people generally aware two thousand fifteen. When I was figuring out what would align practice like? I spent a time as the local physician in traveling around the state of Georgia working in community health care centers. These are gap keeps since centers that help to prevent medical desert's so this is the Horace Squadron of station and what I saw was sick sick people bowl who were sick in very classic ways with lime disease that were MIS categorized so sarcoidosis are coit Lupus muff multiple sclerosis. Lots and lots of steroids are antibiotic. Choices were amoxicillin doxycycline. Fourteen days on a good day two days on an average day and I don't believe in lines disease most days. That's a challenge. That's challenge and when your choice is Wally World Antibiotic Antibiotic List in Two Thousand Fifteen had seven options. Wally world in two thousand nineteen has one option. But we still. You'll have an opportunity to treat line with Zoloft prednisone and now hell doll. Sara Quel Zyprexa in the healthcare centers. When they can't sleep and they're sixteen or fifteen? What does that look like? A twenty one applying for a job without without your teeth in rural America. Where are you going to be thirty? Like question What what do you think uh of the the term post treatment lyme disease syndrome? I know this gets a lot of pushback around and this is coming from somebody who's naive to the space in a a lot of different ways I will freely admit but to me the idea of PT LDS and chronic lyme and They start to sound the same. And I'm wondering It's not always creamy. Why there's an importance in the distinction and please correct educate me? I don't night so Post treatment line assumes that there is a way of treating line that is time center and that timing is dictated by a group of scientists or the physicians pen on the paper and what it usually represents dances and uncoupling of your healing and the interval that you're actually going to have access to the possibility of healing with therapeutic tools that requires I a prescription post treatment. Lime is one of the hot words in research literature. That really really keeps. The South. Sick intimacy is another one of those really powerful words because what does India have when you got it from your Mama. Endemic means the areas of the country. There were people live. That are acknowledged. Sick what would that have to do if your mother gave birth to you New Jersey. You found yourself growing up sick Alabama so when research scientists put post treatment lyme disease patients acknowledged with lime disease living in areas. Where there ticks? Who made them sick? You have eliminated the south when you go on to talk about intimacy Southern tick associated rash illness in the ways that Discounting of the human experience experience when you say most of the symptoms will resolve. How many people have lime disease in the room? Think where did all of your symptoms go away where you WanNa knucklehead writing in their report that your symptoms went away. When did that happen? Was it after you stop sweating in the headache resolved resolved or was it okay after you were having the neurologic tingling and you're jerking and twitching or wasn't when the headaches finally stopped how about this one when you finally got all of the memory you had back to the point where you first described yourself as sick. When did that happen in the course because when we read the medical literature in scientists doctors are trying to meet in these? NIH publications locations every time. A researcher puts on that paper and other symptoms resolved. I think to myself oh the fragility came back. Maybe all their hair wasn't there period. They focused on because they asked for about twelve months. Eighteen months twenty four months. What about three years later? When they were told to have breast cancer or twenty years later when they were sitting in their diaper when they should have been in a boardroom? Meeting the peak of their career post treatment line is part of that process. We really need to stop it. What really struck me was when Dr Barnwell told the story of the difference between her patients in Atlanta and her patients in northern Virginia? And how how..

"With with leading practice and is that attack society. That that that that's a good question so again. It's not just the bugs. It's all the other exposures we don't have a lot of patients that have current lead exposure because word place that fortunately doesn't but we do have patients who come in who tell a story where they're exposed to lead and then wonder did that contribute to their children getting chronically sick so it's not another burden why they actually got sicker than their peers and they have a hard time getting well So so in in Salt Lake City we live Next to the largest open pit mine in the United States and We have these inversions in the wintertime. So we just get to breathe all that dust I And so yeah. I see a lot of heavy metal toxicity. Arsenic comes up in in almost everyone. Uranium comes up. Almost everyone not necessarily to obscenely obscenely high levels but we all I mean. Rice plants absorb arsenic as well as it absorbed zinc. So when you're eating your you know your rice ball you're absorbing arsenic. It's a question of. Can you talk so far from your liver. What's your site people fifty system work like Knowing that you that form health is has these practices across the United States. Are you collecting. Are you collecting information and data from your other other hospitals and your other systems that help us understand form. Health is in a good situation there. We the one the founders is the owner of a an MR system. And so we've got this Longitudinal data for the past twelve years on in chronically. Ill patients not all of them have line some of them have. Ibs some of them have You know Crohn's disease just whatever but but the data collection is there and now it's a matter of can we take that and with artificial intelligence question numbers and see how to connect the dots.

"Of immune response so I would say in a nutshell. That's how I would characterize functional integrative rid of medicine your Doctor Chandra please my slides are so I'm an integrative creative psychiatrists in the San Francisco area. And what put me on this path to do. This model of medicine was an observation really early in my career that not enough psychiatric to patients were getting well. The outcomes were not what were they should be and so I wanted to find ways of helping these patients that offered were labeled wealth but weren't getting well and the patients that I see are in three categories and all three categories are patients who need a better way so one is patients with chronic psychiatric illnesses patients who've been depressed for maybe years or decades or inked anxiety patients who had for a long time also children with developmental delays and then also patients who've already been identified as having a tick borne illness but aren't responding to chronic convention. Sorry conventional treatments so these may seem like very we different populations but with the integrative punctual approach we use very similar mechanisms supporting them we find common underlying contributors causes. So what is integrative psychiatry. A lot of people haven't heard this term it's integrated in two ways. One we think about the brain in context of the whole body so many psychiatrist neurologist stop at the brain and they don't think about what goes beyond they don't ask and they don't think about contributors that go beyond the central nervous system. And I believe you have to and and second we integrate treatments so rather than just using one medication like Zoloft and saying that's it. We really tried to integrate treatments. Personalized them so we know what we try to figure out. What's going to work for that? Individual and the goal is not just to mitigate symptoms but we want to build long term health and ideally zillions so that differ patient has another stressor or infection. They're going to handle that much better than they did. The last one that's triple so why lime disease you can understand. Why use integrative approach but wide lime disease and this also came from an early observation that a lot of my patients more than I would have ever imagined had some type of immune issue or infection and so that's where I put a lot of my attention because that's what's helping my patients get well not something I intended to do and the patients who to come to me have the typical symptoms? You'd see in psychiatric population. They may have depression anxiety. Attention Issues But what's not typical about them. Is that we find this infection in a way that we don't think about lyme disease presenting there in California out of place that we think of epidemic. They've had chronic issues. They've you've been sick for years if not decades and most don't recall a tick bite and certainly not an rash and the other thing. That's not typical about them is that they don't just have one infection. Most of them have more than one. So treatment treatment is not just about killing the bugs. I'm really encouraged by the talks this morning because because we do need more effective ways of getting these bugs out the system but it's not just about killing the bugs. It's really about building resilience in the body and we have to look at internal factors actors and external factors so external. We think about stress in the home in the family diet environmental exposures and then internally we've pig about all the systems that affect building resilience including the microbiome which is so important especially in somebody's had chronic antibiotics for lyme disease might conjul health actual how how hormone will help so while it's really While the patients will come to US often don't have hope when we have this model it is it offers them hope in a way that I don't think I could have even imagined it might training conventional innocent. Well thank you. I think we can switch to the the. QNA slide died I have so many. have so many different avenues that I want to go down with you guys because those I personally find signed the Functional Medicine Integrative Medicine practice to be to be shouldn't be an outlier in medicine. Right should yeah exactly. I mean like doctors. Doctors are trained to be healers. They should they should be trained to be to make people better and yet. Can't you know as we get into specialized practice and we get into into more specialized work. We often our field of expertise zeroes in and we end up being labeled we end up being. You know even self dubbed I'm a rheumatologist or I'm infectious disease or I. Am this and and so. I think that looking at what everybody knows is a complex.

"What happens to patients. Nations is just as important as the physical nature of what happens to patients and I would say I would point out that the spiritual nature of our own individual spiritual practices important and and that may sound bizarre to come from a physician. But I think it's true so Integrated Position Health precision health. I I love the idea. I'm not so certain. About how we we put it into practice. Every single time I would love precision marriage. I'd love to be a precision and father But it's sort of trial and error right. We we know good things and I read books and I'm like oh I'm better at this than I was a few years ago But that's really how we have to approach patients so you can see. There's a number sort of a timeline of things that that are important for health and some of them are more precise than others. But I've got written Dan Dan H- Herbs Meditation Yoga biofeedback Ozone Antibiotics and drugs over the last two or more precise than the yoga. And yet I wouldn't say that they're more necessarily important didn't So sort of approaching patients in a holistic way and looking at all of those things is necessary. And you can see on that little tree and those routes that The symptoms up at the top of chronic fatigue or heart disease or diabetes or depression. Those are symptoms but the root causes what we really need to try to find and and the root causes are multifactorial. And you can. I can have a root cause and you can have a root causes. We have different symptoms because of probiotics listened to the tableau mix See I thought I deleted that slide so this is really where I focused my practice. I focused my practice on saying We prepare ourselves and sells break. And we're really good at building new cells and repairing cells in the first Probably twenty years of life The building blocks of cells Essentially are carbohydrates proteins vitamins minerals fats. We have to have those things to build cells. And then we have to have signaling molecules signaling annoying molecules into being things like phones and peptides insider kinds and You know Lukens and if you don't have both sets of those you won't repair cells or build new cells on the other side of that equation is cellular breakdown and cellular breakdown. Is this ongoing constant process. Some sales just have certain life expectancy of red blood cell less for six months. Antibody antibody lasts for two to three months But what but as this is happening. What's what's really the cause disease and it ends up? Being three major things microbes toxins and immune dysfunction. And this is just my theory of it. I mean it was. It was fascinating to listen to the last speaker talking about immune dysfunction and saying that's the problem.

"The three main causes of disease. According to Dr Peterson. UAE A good. Marker of health is resiliency in the face of stress and the benefits of an integrative and functional approach when treating lime disease. Thanks for in a big shoutout to all you longtime lime Ninjas. You're the reason we have more than half a million downloads Aurora. And I really appreciate you tuning in in and we'd like to welcome all the new listeners. Out there welcome to lime Ninja radio. You are now officially a lime Ninja and as you know lime. Lime disease is an international problem. Each week we have listeners. Join you from all over the world and this past week we've had listeners tune in from Aurora Colorado to Virginia Urginia Beach Virginia. I was trying really hard to get that C. Can you tell no but I thought you took Aurora Heart. It's not an accident. It was a nice addition I will lure is listening to Aurora. Tell us a little bit more about doctors Karachi. Chandra Andrew Peterson Doctors Richie. Chandra is a psychiatrist who specializes in integrative and holistic approaches chits. She has been studying evidence. Based Integrative approaches for brain-based conditions for the past fifteen years and Dr Andrew Peterson is A. D. O.. And is a fellow with the American Academy of Anti Ageing and Regenerative medicine his. Integrative approach focuses on conditions that conventional eventual medicine does not treat well such as lime disease hormonal imbalances neurodegenerative illnesses. So the reason we're bringing you. This presentation from the line conference is that the functional approach to health is so important. We really feel that you should at least yourself. Self has a functional approach or have somebody with a functional approach on your team and that just means that they're looking outside the normal lines that that doctors look at in terms of what could be causing the disease. So they're looking at the three hundred sixty degree view rather than just zoning in or zooming in on on one or two pathways that could be affected and then looking for that drug.

Sawbones: Auto-Brewery Syndrome

"Auto brewery syndrome. Have you heard of this I mean is this the pariah lie and pretend like you haven't been talking about it's been in the media her this folks had you heard about it before I told you know but your dad had and that's something but your your dad watches a lot of oddball stuff he keeps track of like weird things in the news you wouldn't have to watch oddball stuff to find this this is is this is infiltrated the people like to use the MSM mainstream media the lame stream media in my book. I thought you call them I see I don't I love the mainstream media love the media love it love journalists thank you I'm on the pro side but I used to be I know well no I'm married a guy who worked at best buy journalist I prefer games editorialist really really was more about bringing my own fun funky take two things than I was like real hard news you know I so there have been a ton of articles goals in various news outlets on the Internet I think this has made some lake news stories on TV and newspapers and stuff because it's a really interesting ninety a- and it's all based on an article that was published this past summer and this is not the first case of this ever or the first article that was ever published on this it just seems to be the first one that has kind of captured the attention of the public so this past summer on the B. M. J. Open gastroenterology the journal so that's a it's an online open access journal so this is captured a ton of media attention it was a case report and Literature Review that tells a story of a forty six year old pretty healthy guy who started having issues he traces it back to a finger injury in two thousand eleven he had some sort of wound on his finger and some sort of complicated injury that required a course of an antibiotic called SEF election or you may have heard the brand name Catholics so he took the whole course of the antibiotics and after he completed it he started having these strange episodes and he described them as kind of a brain the fog and you'll you'll hear that term throughout this this diagnosis in this syndrome and I always I always think that I always get nervous when I hear the term brain rain fog because you you find it attached to a lot of other diagnoses that are more questionable things like chronic lyme you'll hear brain fog tied to a lot I I prefer go with having a senior moment that's what I go with eye brain fog is more like I just feel my the way people tend to describe it as like I can't you know like you feel fuzzy I would think about it like the times in my life where I've taken cold medicine I feel like that if I act had the mental capacity and say I do now if I just woke up one morning in my late teens or early twenties with this mental state I would think that I suddenly Oh man I could feel my cognitive abilities like dwindling as I as I age into decrepitude having children create permanent brain fog eh actually temporary I'm hoping it will wear off once they sleep sleep yeah like normal humans anyway he started having those symptoms uh-huh I it progress until he was having some actual like mood changes like depressive symptoms and his mood was very lay bile some personality changes does even and he finally sought care for this in twenty fourteen this went on for quite a while before he went and saw Dr and discuss these issues and the physician he saw felt it was largely a psychiatric issue and so- treated him with some antidepressant anti anxiety medications for what appeared appeared to be some sort of depressive rings or both kind of kind of diagnosis this didn't really help and everything kind of culminates nate's in this story in an early morning arrest for a Dui so he's pulled over he appears intoxicated he refuses a Breathalyzer Breathalyzer he sent to the emergency room and his blood alcohol level was found to be two hundred in the er aches so it it seems pretty straightforward at this point right you find a lot of times if you can find substance use disorders and things like depression actioner other mood disorders or other other psychiatric diagnoses can be co morbidity as they can run together you might find a slightly higher rate of one with the other or vice versa especially when one one is being is not being managed the medications we're not working for his symptoms so on the surface is it seems pretty straightforward he is you know trying to get a hold of these medical conditions he's trying to get treatment he still in the process yes it's not successful yet he has had some alcohol to try to self medicating he got caught in Dui as result now what's what's interesting is that he insisted he had not had a single alcoholic beverage even prior to this episode he says I was never much of a drinker occasionally on social situations but very rarely and in the last couple of years he hadn't been drinking at all because of all these symptoms he'd been having he didn't want any more brain fog then he was already experiencing so he is is adamant I did not drink so as people that have been doing Sabas for many years we would at this point default to something if not skepticism maybe something approaching a realistic practicality and a lot of a lot of the physicians who encountered him agreed with with what might probably initial skepticism optimism would be well it a lot of people deny Cher that they have a problem at first it would not be unusual to be embarrassed or feel guilty realized that you know this if you had been drinking I I shouldn't have done that could hurt myself or someone else I wish I hadn't I need help help this has become an issue all of those are huge things to to be able to say out loud seek out for and so it's very natural to think well he's just not telling the truth or like like when I come home and I'm like I don't know how oatmeal cream pie double decker rapper got into the car it doesn't make sense to me if you have any ideas please let me know because I'm freaked out to I'm freaking out with you write about this cream pie double decker bar right after I went to dollar general we're in this together yeah we're in this together solve this puzzle yeah here help me crack this wide open well even though the the physicians he saw the healthcare professionals he saw which he he saw several did not really believe him his aunt did and his aunt got him a breathalyzer and said I heard about something like this over in Ohio I want let's check on this breathalyzer every once in a while and see if even if you're not drinking you know it looks like your drinking on this breathalyzer see if you've still got you know alcohol all in your bloodstream even if you hadn't been drinking alcohol so he did that and he you know a sensibly found that he was blowing positives it was on the breathalyzer even though he wasn't drinking and he located this clinic in Ohio and he went there and the doctors there had seen a patient with a similar situation Jewish before like I said this wasn't the first case just kind of the first one that seems to have caught media attention and they they felt like they knew what was going on so they checked his stool will and they found saccharomyces survey and another yeast species and that one specifically is better known as brewer's yeast and from here they diagnosed him with Auto Brewery Syndrome so what this basically means is that some people get filled up with a kind of yeast it's mainly been yeast that have been implicated although a couple bacteria have been thought to possibly cause this as well but mainly piece that have filled up the intestines and we want east when we're brewing to turn sugar into alcohol right right that's the whole idea that's it that's how you brew beer whatever any kind of alcohol but in this case the carbohydrates and sugars and everything everything this patient is eating will go into the stomach into the intestines the yeast will gobble it up turn it into alcohol that alcohol will get into your bloodstream stream and you get drunk okay so that is the that is the basic theory behind Brewery Syndrome and the idea that we could fine mind elevated levels of this yeast in the stool is was thought to be proof right because you might have a little of this in your gi tract but you shouldn't shouldn't have as much as a lot of these patients are you know are finding so that was the that was what this man was diagnosed swift and like I said the docks at this office in Ohio felt like this was the likely cause because this wasn't the first time that they hit seen a case like

"You'll learn three main things how to take serve yourself as your primary caretaker of some with lime how to deal with uncooperative and closed minded medical practitioners and why it's always it's a good idea to keep in touch with a lawyer when your child is sick with lime thanks Rura and a big shoutout to all you longtime Lime Ninjas you're the reason we have six hundred thousand downloads more than half a million oh that's right shooting right up Orion I really appreciate you tuning the in and we'd like to thank all you knew listeners out there welcome to live radio you are now officially alive Ninja and as you know I'm disease is an international problem each week we have listeners join you from all over the world and this past week we've had listeners tune in from Atlanta a two Ashville and from sins Berry to South Bend thank you Laura I did that one for you. Indiana Yup Yup Notre Dame's host Virginia this weekend go Irish beat Wa who's all right thanks to her tells a little bit about today's guests Stephanie and she shares the name of our guests last week but it really is a different person so don't be confused this is a different Stephanie all right uh-huh Stephanie Stephanie Journey began speaking of tales we do have an update on the most horrible all water well week so last week we talked about it breaking in we fixed it twice then we had to fix it thrice and I think it's still not fixed yet matter of fact I know it's not fixed yet so this is really a great illustration of Plan B are actual have to admit our actual I plan B. was actual plan one a we just I did the same thing just a little bit better except it wasn't could nuff so it broke in exactly the same place the PVC threatening exploded off the pipe and so we moved on to plan B C career plan b yeah we got a medal piping and this was awesome it held except now the check valve broke fell on to plan D L. D. S. well that was unexpected failure so now we've got a new check valve in and we have other problems that are showing up so I think I'm going to have to climb down the well don't worry it's not that deep and it cement so it's nothing to clap so me I'm hoping there's no snakes frogs are okay crayfish yeah snakes not so much we think the check valve is stuck down there so the pump is working overtime to suck the water through the pipe and I hope that'll be the last we'll give you an update next week anyway you must have a plan B and the moral and once you've moved on Plan B you need to have a plan C. Because that then becomes your plan be don't give up and then when Plan C. Works it will highlight of things that are wrong in the system so perhaps yes that's kind of phase three of your life journey is once you're over everything then you realize oh my goodness there were these other things that I need to address now and then once the waters fixed completely then you can move onto the next project finished painting the House or getting a job or getting back into relationships and things like that it's always moving forward so have plan a plan B nowhere you on your journey note the next step is going to be what's around the bend it's that important okay now you can tell us about Stephanie. Stephanie Journey began when her son became ill within two months her son L. ill from severe psychological and neurological symptoms self knee began her mission to help her son with medical research research into Western and turning medicine during the course of helping her son he'll she learned how to start taking care of herself and that was a big part of it okay once again we have a mom in new mothers up there don't get enough Kudos you re lead the charge in taking care of the health of your family and we wanted to bring some lime stories back has been a while since we talked on the personal side of things interview people we'd mostly been doing medical experts that sort of thing we just wanted to bring it back and bring some reality back to what the actual stay today struggle is light and the week before Stephanie Who's the counselor she has lime and her family has lime's like the whole family has lined the that's a different dynamic this is more a mom whose son falls ill with lime disease and doesn't suffer herself directly with lyme disease but how much is struggle it is and how much it can just consume you and how important it is to remember to do himself care and to take care of yourself so you don't go completely into the rabbit hole of taking care of your child and forget about yourself about everything else fall apart so I think that's the that's the story here sure so it's part about this up putting together your team this is early on this is one of the first steps in your lime disease journey whether you're doing it for a child oiled or a husband or partner or whether you're you're alone in this in initially and you've got to put together young team is one of those or steps.

It's just fun praising overwhelming and just he can't integrate whoa fan interviewed Hamari to an who's a lovely could grief. She's either Norwegian or Swedish somewhere from up there may be Danish and we've interviewed her two or three times once a long time ago and then she contact me said I need to talk about this in which he's talking about is she went through the narrow reprogramming program and that made all the difference like Shanti had been on a million supplements have been doing this and that and I finally got my brain calmed down and I'm okay. I can't believe it. We have to look at the different levels right. You can't only look at the genetics. You can only look at the infectious agent agents. You can only look at the psychological. You can only look at your gut your thyroid hormone hormones. You have to look at all of it right. That's Horowitz idea right absolutely and and I think the big Pete is so important for people were may get as low I have been in many people on your show and then people listening has is you really gotTa. It brings me to your knee. You know it kind of got a letter bomb. Drop out and then he's gotTa rebuild that I find that in just observing people who don't let alone along the I I heard that they have a harder journey getting back up series living the ball pull out but that sounds really scary I now so what do you mean 'cause. It means something very specific to you. I think it's you're actually talking technically Mickley but what what the ad that I mean we have these ideas of what we need to do in the world in order to have value and all the things that we need to do to keep our house in order and our life in order relationships in order and a lot auto times with people in Bangalore his talked about this type A. Personalities and are that they're they're alive the culprits for this stuff so it's sort of a reflection on allowing yourself to just not to just not to just focus on you and just the a very basic like what I was sick. I couldn't make meals. I couldn't make healthy meals. I make cookies so the PTA. I couldn't even go to work work. I could clean my house. I couldn't take care of things my husband and they take care of the bills. I couldn't do any and it really. I believe that my bottom dropping out okay so I can't do anything now so what Hound Y. What can I do. What now that I get well. What do I how do I wanNA rebuilt like what is important to me then. I'm doing and and that's that's that biting journey contraception. I mean you know there's then many. Sp How on on on the show and probably many people who it's this is a terrible horrible situation goes for sure without a doubt it none. My wife is better. My priorities are better mind. Values are better now. It caused me like it kind. Give me to the ground wants me to reassess my values that some because I couldn't function the way I was functioning before so I had to let things go and I had to set what was important to hang onto and so it's very deliberate now and that you've you Kinda cool war. It does make sense and was this just a complete. Leading goal is like Oh thank goodness it's gone or was it. Did you mourn your life. You more near what you used to be able to do. Did you was there. You know we talked a little bit earlier about grief yeah well. I don't think I'm more that because it kind of feels pretty free and it wasn't a conscious thing this. I'm like flexing on it now but truly this came out of survival mode. This is very what what what I was doing was just simply surviving and now report track and I was really pulling things that were important to me but at the time it was like okay okay. I need to cook their okay. I need to spend time with my children. You know everything is wiped away and the author of the knee and that kind of I haven't been putting one foot in front of the other. Is You know what are the things that are important to me now at mom as a woman the wife as a you know imagine feeling therapists and so now my world has come together in a new way where onto the the components it components for my path that I taught I needed to do all those taken away That's what I was saying. Everything now. It's choice and that kind of a coolest rain today you know the people do talk about a created life right in and choosing that thing so it's interesting that you went and this probably you from your training. I would imagine that you said Okay Right now. What's the most important thing in charge of that right and then after that's okay now what's the most important thing right now oh too bad. I can't do it eight things. It's just like what's the most important thing right now. Oh that's right. It's putting putting that one neck not just put take the next step in the next step. And what are you going to feel that what important to like. I said it's power painting together. But how did you balance balance out. Everybody else's needs versus Joan because sometimes the next step is okay. I need to sleep for ten hours. You know my my kids want me to read them. Big Time story or something balanced folk. I have the most amazing husband that anybody that perhaps and I have somebody who breeds to believe me who understood going through and you know God's laughing. He has more patients in his kinky than I have in my whole finger in my Kabaddi and everything so he really has been a huge support in filling the gap or you know is my friend down the street. He says hey can I bring you. Jenner unlike you bet you can bring me you know so I had some good people in my life to in my like I said on my friend who owns a counseling center. She benso kindness. Gosh notaire stuff. Let us know we will handle your your patient load while you're gone. Let us know what you need so I am lucky that I have a lot of wonderful people in my life that have allowed me to to get doc. Gradually you know and I think I'm I'm fortunate with that. When you see people in your practice who don't have that signed signed type of support what you know what do you counsel well and that's a toughie because really really is about helping them find that and whether they find not in in a community in in in the school group a few friends an off that lives down the street a really great if we can bring like the husband and wife and and help them understand what's going on I certainly have a case right now where I have on Kathleen already and she's he's just lovely but you know her husband isn't super edger standing of her exhaustion and probably wine diagnoses and so it's really about her doing what she needs to do to take care of herself. Even in light of him not understanding and thank God awed. She has a friend who lives across the street. Who's amazing and there were like sisters and friends so it's really helping them to try to find the resources that are going to help them support themselves and also empowering them encouraging them to lead the way hey for them. Thumbs that nobody gets to tell you how many hours of sleep you need. You are actually the expert on that yourself. You know it you just me to step into the fact that Mauriac for it on you know and helping people understand what you need not looking for their approval. You know not looking at they don't understand then. Don't waste your energy because you don't have much put that energy into taking care view so it can it can be a rough rocky road for some folks but you definitely want to go in and try to help them find the support court and find the people who believe they're going through what they're going through even though they don't have a cancer diagnoses or they aren't walking around with a cap on their leg 'cause that's the most difficult part of this and what that Wyman co-infections side a and a lot of other chronic disorders visible road all around everything but hey if you have root that people will only have loop. I get it or you know you. You're you seem oh okay. We got that you know and that's okay. We understand you know you have that down but if you say chronic lyme disease the people don't even know what you're talking about so it can be very difficult and the super important that people when they get diagnosed diagnosed her field. They have this there with a good therapist to going to support and believe them because they need that a couple follow up questions and but you've said that so beautifully and I think you've gotten to the heart of the matter there so let's enter conversation at some point the only muddy the water by talking more amazing job of summing up you know not only to difficulties but really the the first step is like if you don't have an ally ally in this journey. You don't have a buddy. It's going to be long and difficult yeah definitely and that can be found online online support groups because I know there's a lot of those going on and you don't need everybody in the world to join you really don't you just need a few people will who really get you and have your back and are there for you and that that's that's. GonNa be you know it's going to be the floor. The visas foundational now want to give your contact information if you don't that's fine well yeah I mean I can. I know that we are living I have aware of too many people who are even aware of product line disease so I don't know if they are a lot of therapists in my area that understand that the way I understand this specific it different from other chronic illnesses so certainly if somebody wants to find me day can get my Let's see maybe we can.

Patient Zero's Taylor Quimby talks about his battle with Lyme disease

"Hello outside fans this week. We're bringing you one last episode of patient zero and then in two weeks we'll be back to your regularly scheduled scheduled outside in programming. Thank you for listening to these episodes and thank you to those of you who've subscribe to patient zero particularly those who donated and have been getting off the bonus episodes. We've you've been making a heads up to everyone that camp our final bonus episode is going to be an ask me anything about lyme disease where we try to wrap up all the loose ends all the scary things you've read about online so if you have any questions email them to patient zero at NHPRC dot org again we really appreciate that you've stuck with us for what has been a bit of an experiment fairmount and I really hope you found it interesting engaging. Okay here's the episode what were your symptoms fatigue really bad headache terrible neck pain and back pain and spiked a high fever like got one of three and a weird mark but on the second or third day what did it look like looked like a bullseye but to me at the time it just didn't make the connection for how long did you have those three days and and you are seen by the doctor and she says what she thought of the flu and then almost as a as an aside. I showed shoulder this weird rash she was like Oh oh you have lime disease just like yeah. My name is Taylor quimby hi. I have a confession two summers ago just weeks after my colleague Hannah was diagnosed with lyme disease I got it to Hannah got caught in the middle of something strange a feud between two doctors working at the same clinic one who said she had lyme disease and another who said she probably didn't and and she wound up getting two rounds of antibiotics before feeling mostly better. It was different for me. My doctor saw the rash gave me antibiotics and that was that and that was the end of your dealings. With why am I think so you know if you're reading a lot about lyme disease as you do get a little paranoid that the little things that come up could be somehow associated with having been sick like what it like seasonal depression in the winter anxiety. Maybe never making this podcast so personally personally. I'm mind that sticking up pretty far too treating line in what lack of understanding agreement as left patients in a divided world ruled of controversy there are families that get devastated completely debilitating to some folks lifelong illness.

Why Are Opossums Awesome?

"Today's adulthood. episode is brought to you by smart water twenty years ago. Smart water, reimagined, what water could be from thoughtful bottle designed to supporting smart people who are changing our world through fresh thinking. Like, you smart water has added electrolytes for taste and great tasting water helps you stay hydrated, feeling refreshed and ready to take on your day. Refresh yourself with smart water. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, bring stuff Lauren Vogel bomb here. If you live in North America, you've probably seen Virginia a possum, classification Delta's Virginia. Ana maybe the unfortunate creature was dead on the road. Or maybe it was very much alive on your porch. Eating garbage in the middle of the night. But in either case, you might have thought. Oh, gross a possum, but you would have been off base on several counts. First of all possums live in Australia, and are also a marsupial, which means they raise their young in a pouch like a kangaroo, but they're completely different species than the animal currently snuggling with a half eaten bag of Doritos at the bottom of curbside trash can in North Carolina, which is correctly. And a possum we spoke with Richard offs. Feld senior scientists at the institute of ecosystem studies in Millbrook New York. He said folks get very confused about this. I've had people tell me triumphantly that they discovered building plans for possum nestboxes, and they planned to install dozens of them to encourage possums to multi. Play on their property. But when I looked at the plans, they were designed for brush tailed possums in Austria completely useless for possums in North America. So with that part settled opossums, aren't that gross? Even if they wouldn't mind taking that moldy pad Thai from the back of your refrigerator off of your hands. They may look a little creepy. What would that long hairless prehensile tail the mouthful of haphazard teeth in the beady eyes, but opossums are the studiously groomed and most likely disease free wildlife heroes of your neighborhood. It's a common misconception possibly prompted by their bumbling swagger that opossums often carry rabies or distemper. In fact, they rarely get these diseases because their body temperature is too low to make them susceptible. Not only do opossums not carry these diseases. The presence of an apostle in your yard is your best bet for combating lime disease. A two thousand nine study explored whether black legged ticks the disease vector for Lyme disease might be regulated by wildlife that they parasite ties of fifteen forest welling, mammals and ground. Nesting birds opossums were the only ones to destroy the vast. Already of all of the black legged ticks the tried to feed on them. Over ninety five percent us feld who co-authored. The study said our calculations indicated that a single possum is capable of killing several thousand larval ticks per week during the late summer peak. We also know that of those ticks that do successfully feed on on a possum only small fraction will become infected with the lime disease bacterium so opossums are protective in two ways killing ticks and preventing infection. A study by the same research team published in July of two thousand eighteen in the journal ecology found the tick-borne disease risk was reduced in areas. Where possums were present. For an animal that does more than its fair share of hobbling into traffic and is known for flopping over like a corpse at the merest whiff of danger opossums are perhaps surprisingly intelligent to begin with weak eyesight at a nocturnal nature, both contribute to the fact that you're probably more familiar with the site of a debt possum that alive. One. In addition, their primary defense mechanism playing dead is almost entirely involuntary a reaction to extreme stress that leaves the apartment coma for a few minutes to a couple of hours and a coma at possum can take a beating that would kill other animals their size. This then is a great strategy. If your mortal enemy is a bear. But not so great if it's Toyota. So if for example, your dog corners and a possum one night in the backyard. Don't worry the possum may listen show its teeth attempt to look scary because it's frightened. But the last thing wants is to tangle with your four legged friend, it will invariably lay down and play dead until the threat gets bored and passes opossums are non-aggressive docile creatures far more afraid than they are to be feared, and they're also studiously clean alike. Cats opossums are constantly grooming themselves with their paws and tongue partly in order to make sure they're parasite free. But also keep themselves. Cool. They lack sweat glands. So grooming is like a possum air conditioning. And they do it to keep themselves smelling like well, nothing as we established possums aren't great at protecting themselves in a standoff with a predator. So it behooves them to stay odor. Neutral, part of the reason of possums have the reputation for being smelly has to do with one other defense mechanism the smell of death. A once in a possum goes into its theatrical coma if. Predator continues to mess with it. The apostle may excrete smelling mucous from glands in its anus. This has been to signal. Hey, this possum is definitely dead and possibly so entirely dead that it'll make you sorry, you ate it. Speaking of opossums are really smart about what they eat. Because it turns out they have great memories. Once in a possum tastes, a chemical. That doesn't agree with it. Will remember avoid the smell of it for a year afterwards, though, opossums are immune to some things that would poison other mammals, including most snake venoms possums are biologically fascinating, which led to some confusion among early Europeans in the new world. Their story was the male possum made it through the female opossums snout, which led to her sneezing out her babies into her marsupial pouch. Of course, this is not scientifically accurate, but possums definitely do things a little differently. First of all a male. Possum has a forked penis, but it's not meant for the females nostrils female opossums have double vagina and twin utera possum embryos develop for about thirteen days until they're large enough to migrate down the birth canal and emerge about size of house flies to continue developing in the mother's pouch. Although dozens of them. We'll be born the mother only has thirteen teats. So that's probably how many will be able to survive into
