An has become a top resource for essential oils education on the Internet today Jodi it is just fantastic to have you here with us today. How're you doing great and it's nice to connect with other essential ill people always yes. So Jodie, how did you come into the world of essential oils and specifically breen related issues? While I had kind of started my life as a journalist and then I started working business had my first kid who was easy had a second one twenty two months later less easy and it turned out it was nutrition that was really throwing off his little system, and so I spent so much time banging my head against the wall until I figured that out the one that I realized how important food was in. Terms of your mood, your energy, your ability to focus I went back and got a degree in nutrition was helping other people a Lotta MOMS but you know Kinzer squirmy and it's hard to keep them still the test them. So I learned this technique called missile testing that allowed they could deliver. It was still really an easy way to identify remedies which was helpful when my bottom fellow my man has been was bipolar. Antonio suicide and had to be moved to a residential treatment facility and the kids were five and seven, and once we got him all Seta. I collapsed my adrenals have been running a ten year marathon and it just it had taken a toll on me but that wasn't very sustainable because I was suddenly a single parent I had a job and. It no matter how exhausted I wear they still needed to be fed the laundry John need to be cleaned exactly. So it was then that a friend actually gifted me a box of essential hills because I had been trying everything I could think of all the things that have worked in the past really failed me and I was so desperate and and really so fatigued both physically, and mentally that I just muscled. Tested you know as anything in here, going to be helpful for measuring all's and my experience muscle testing is if something works, it's almost like it's a very loud signal and it was such a strong signalise league felt optimistic and I was like Oh you know identified five oils and then it occurred to me like what do I do this? I normally get one and I realized that I can combine them so i. Each oil and kind of combine them in the right amounts, put them on my adrenals on my lower back and for the first time in a month felt like myself again felt like Oh my God I go running. Do you have to remember what those five oils were by chance? Yeah. It's actually the combination that I now have in my adrenal gland it's time Rosemary Rosemary Stimulatory Manuka cinnamon and. Gabum in as you know oils ever powerful in their own but when you combine them, there's synergy that occurs. amplifies Fairfax, and so they're stimulatory oils but they seem to be adapted genetic Yeah. So you re rub them on the on your lower back over the dreams. Yeah. Man I just recently had this. Huge moment with oils. Again, you know you have them all the time you know you just keep having them and you're like Oh my God big things really do work and it was when I was cutting out coffee. Drinking how day in the morning which verdon normal person is probably fine. But for me, it was like really recognize system and so I just cut it out cold Turkey and I was. I. Was just I had Migraines I was just miserable and so yeah I. Busted out some oils and rub them on major knowles and then put like hot pack over top. And it really Mike would bring me back to life. It was it was an amazing feeling. So That's interesting that that was sort of your in for oils was it anyways it was so quick and I thought this is amazing. You know and also I had been working as a practitioner and you know someone's deficient in vitamin B wants an easy fix ray if you're trying to trigger your pineal gland or at least Melatonin were balanced hypo film, it's get into areas of the brain. That's tricky. There all these kind of low hanging fruit, easy things and then harder things and so once I had that experience of wow, is work then. I kind of was reverse engineering witched do right Oh. My Gut is really compromised I league. So makes sense that no matter what I'm taking three my digestion pathway isn't really getting a simulated but something I can topically apply that could sue the skin into the bloodstream immediately. So okay. That makes sense why the other remedies were working in while this worked really quickly right? Just sort of bypasses the gut there and that it makes total sense to me when I hear that that explanation of getting the oils into your bloodstream, which is gonNa then go to all these parts of your body really get in deepen in my mind it seems very. Pretty straightforward just like you would use any form of planned medicine or any sort of you're getting good stuff into your body and letting it do its job. But for a lot of people they just they can't look past essential oils is just things that smell good. You know. Later Cat Are concentrated plants and guess what plants and the derivative of plants are fifty percent of pharmaceutical drugs. That's really the basis for all of our Madison are just concentrated in somehow they've been diminished or kind of relegated to this weird around when they're really the core
The Gluten Connection to Osteoporosis and Autoimmune Diseases
"I'm Cassie Wenas. I've been a registered and licensed stay Titian for twenty two years and of those twenty two years I've been teaching nutrition classes and Co hosting this dishing up nutrition program for about the past fourteen to fifteen years. I am telling you this certainly not to make myself feel old. But to let you know that I have quite a bit of experience to share and I feel really fortunate to be able to be here this morning to help all of you listening better understand the connection between what you eat and how you feel. And today my co host Teresa and I will be discussing subject that I know a lot about and if we're being honest I know a lot about this topic more by destiny certainly not by choice we're going to be talking about the myriad of health problems that gluten grains cause for a lot of people as many of our listeners know I know a lot about this topic not only because of how gluten has negatively affected my health but what? Really drives, my passion on this topic stems from the fact that both of my kids have a condition called seal EAC and if you're not familiar with this autoimmune condition in a nutshell, it's when your body has a severe reaction to gluten and actually causes your body to begin attacking itself. It's kind of like the immune system goes haywire, and if you swallow even just a tiny speck of gluten, your immune system I begins attacking your own small intestine. So. Now you know a little bit about our topic for the day next, I'd like to ask a few questions just to get everybody connecting the dots as we delve further into what we call the dark side of gluten. So question number one, do you or a close family member have lupus. Do you or a close family member have rheumatoid arthritis or do you have a thyroid condition like? Disease or Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Do you have Raynaud's if you're not familiar with rain odds, I can explain from personal experience. Raynaud's is when the blood vessels in your hands and your feet. Constrict when you get cold and they constrict beyond what's Normal When the weather or the air is cold or it can happen because of stress as well, and then your fingers or your toes might turn white and you get sort of a burning pain not fun. Or is your Autoimmune Disease Scleroderma or type one diabetes. Do you or a loved one have chronic acid reflux or do you have osteoporosis if you can say, yes to any of these questions you're in for a super informative show today theresa and I WanNa help you make the connection between eating gluten grains namely the the Ri- The barley and most oats and your health problems. And as I just mentioned, my co host today is Theresa. I WanNa tell you a little bit more about her Theresa Wagner like me is a registered and licensed AIA Titian she to teaches many of our nutrition classes she of course, Co host this radio program. She's a mom of young kids and she counsels clients several days a week either by zoom or phone appointments because of Covid, nineteen were offering all of our nutritional counseling either by video or phone appointments. Yes. That's right and we are staying busy with those phone appointments and zoom appointments but as it relates to our topic today, cassie. Mentioned earlier that your kids CEAC. Disease. It made me think were you shocked at the many hidden sources of gluten when you started? Living a gluten free life all those years ago I really was shocked I had been a Dietitian for many years at that point by the time our family got diagnosed. So I knew gluten was inbred. I. Knew it was in anything made with wheat flour but I had no idea of the more hidden sources of gluten in our American food supply just to give you a couple. Of examples. Gluten is in some brands of Deli meat. It's in a lot of summer sausage and beef stick brands. It's in some ice creams for heaven's sakes and even in some medicines, not only that but when you have, CEAC, you have to be careful about personal care items to you need to be sure you're buying gluten free shampoo gluten free toothpaste, gluten-free Lotion, and gluten-free makeup. Yeah. It's so crazy to me that gluten is an ingredient in so many every day nonfood products. It reminds me of a client who had ongoing migraine headaches. We have limit. You know we had gone through elimination where we Eliminated. The dietary sources of what we thought causing the Migraines and we went through lifestyle habits that we thought could possibly be causing the migraines when we finally looked at her personal care products and switched to a shampoo without added gluten. Her migraines they disappeared.
The Benefits Of Hypnotherapy
"Hey Alex welcome to the show. It's great to have you here today and I'm excited to chats about well not. So commonly now on topic today well, and maybe there's also quite a few misconceptions about it. hypnotherapy could you please introduce yourself and tell audience what mindset health does show? So Yup, hi, I'm Alison Coach of Health We build hypnosis spaced digital therapeutics for chronic health conditions like IBS anxiety. So essentially, the programs developed by doctors and psychologists to. Use hypnosis hypnosis based techniques to help people self that conditions right and so so what should our listeners like imagine? So it's an APP and it's kind of guiding me through hypnotherapy session or what should I imagine? Yeah. Yeah. So safer fell IBS Procam Nova. It's a structured program of audio sessions on order sessions plus psycho education and flare up techniques and essentially think guided meditation and the delivery methods was audio of coming boys getting to you into helping you. Get into a relaxed focused state. Then it's designed by doctors and psychologists teaching coping skills. It's I'm using visualizations to help increase your ability to self regulate. Right. So that's really the core difference between guided meditation sessions ride. They're more about you know folk singing and clearing your mind to some extent whereas hypnotherapy is using some of that. But really with the purpose of inducing you to making it more receptive to while things that you are looking to change your behavior. Exactly exactly. Yeah. That that's a great description of it. Essentially, hypnosis is becoming highly focused and absorbed to the point that you become more suggestive also receive receptive to new ideas or perceptions. So it's not a therapy itself but when it's combined with their PD techniques, cpt, it becomes hypnotherapy and so while because you'll like essentially low lowering your critical faculty and becoming more receptive and I'm in this sort of experiential learning state I'm when wet teaching you coping skills on. Bass coping skills or going through visualizations you really integrate them much more fully and studies have shown. It can actually improved effectiveness bt for many many conditions. Right and this is nothing like what has been popularized in Hollywood movies as being like put into a state where you lose all your awareness about what the hypnotists saying and what you're doing yourself and Sunday, you're chicken. Exactly. Yeah it's much more like if anything it's more a tightened away innocent heightened focus of what they're saying. So compared to say when we're talking about meditation about like clearing clearing your mind, this is much more like folks really focused on what they're saying tow. It's much more of an active active thing that got it, and so what can you really use it for what are like some of the common conditions that you can treated with? So it's been shown to help a variety of. Conditions. So one of the most well studied areas is irritable passenger. So there's been a tape of evidence showing it can reduce help manage symptoms by seventy percent of people by sixty percent reduction. So it's pretty powerful. It can also help with anxiety depression like teaching coping skills that can help you manage stresses and problem solving skills that can say depression. They often make portions when depressed and so teaching people with the skills to help them make better decisions is one way of managing that and. Is such a powerful vehicle for teaching skills. It can be used across a lot of things another well, well-researched area is chronic pain. So there's been a whole heap of evidence supporting it as a way to reduce acute pain in the moment, but also long term chronic pain conditions such as migraines chronic back pain something that's quite recently such. But this a pretty strong evidence behind it is helping reduce Menopausal postmenopausal hot flashes. So there was a study coming out of Baylor University that found hypnosis or a five-week hypnosis program could help reduce the onset and the the occurrence of hot flashes in postmenopausal women by. Eighty percent after the five-week on program. So it's this pretty strong evidence for writing things they sleep on smoking cessation is coming like ones that might people might associate with hypnosis but because it's just a vehicle for therapeutic aches and most people can become focused and absorbed in what they're doing with a movie or driving or in a daydream it is a widely useful tool, right and right now with mindset alfio primarily focused on mental health ibs and chronic pain management that's still in the works from what I understand right? Exactly. So we we started with mental health and essentially Wichmann, Dr Michael, Yap Kerr on the world leader. In hypnosis actually has textbook on clinically uses hypnosis, but he's a depression expert as well. So are we started with mindset which is a series of programs that teach individual skills and cognitive mechanisms round variety of mental health mental areas but with Nova, which is out second program that's structured six week program for Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and that was based on a twenty sixteen clinical trial by at Monash. University that found six weeks of DOT therapy could help improve IBM symptoms by an average of sixty percent for seventy percent of people, and we've worked with the ray such a I'm from that study to as essentially take her. Work and then deliver through my ball up right and in the future will be we'll be expanding that that sort of ability of waking with such as for different programs into chronic pain into hot flashes into many different areas.

Build & Maintain Your Confidence To Thrive Through Lifes Challenges
"I posted. A video of me is the first time I did in the arm exercises this year right now. When this is coming out, this is Jill. Lie is still lying. Literally, said twenty nine hundred haven't done any like arm exercises, so I picked up a couple of twenty pound. The Time I could pick up twenty pound dumbbells as I was GONNA. Knock out a few sets of curl so I did a little video. Share my story like I'm doing. It was like three or four sets. Little bitty twenties, no big deal. It wasn't the next day it was a day after that it's called domes. The lead onset muscle soreness. My arms felt like someone took them off my body, while I was asleep and beat them against the wall, and then reattach them to my body for when I woke up in the morning, if fell like. My arms went through a baloney meat grinder. My ours will loose meat sandwiches. My arms felt like sore hamstrings. My arms felt like I had migraines in both of my biceps, right. It was crazy. My arms felt like there was riding in looting by little people inside of my arms in little fires. That's how my arms felt. But I'm grateful for it, even though even reaching out to you know, pick something up. I was grateful that I was able to do it. I know this part of the process, and I know that we all have different stages and phases and seasons that we go through in life and being able to have gratitude, even in the pain, being able to have gratitude even when we're struggling. It's something very powerful for us to cultivate, and it's not always easy. I was not grateful through this entire process. There are moments that I would gladly kick grateful in the jugular alright, but. It's something that you cultivate you. Train yourself sort as I said on the show. Recently you don't rise to the level of your expectations. You fall to the level of your training. And no matter where you are with that. with which you've kind of foundation that you've created. You're always going to find that when difficult times hit. Your level your foundation is GonNa be right there for you. Not GonNa go much lower than that so again. It's just another practice in this. Why this episode today is so important, so powerful is to create a stronger foundation of confidence to be able to perform to be able to not just. Survive not just overcome, but to thrive, even during times of great challenge. And before we get into that, we also have to keep in mind. All this whole experience of confidence starts from our mindset stars from our brain, and being able to fire on all cylinders, and as you know, we always have a nutritional component whether it's through the nutrition that we bring in whether through nutritious movement nutritious sleep. Nutritious relationships but the things that we engage in our environment things that we bring it to. Our bodies helped to create the very cells that do all these amazing things, the very cells that create all of these seemingly magical processes of experiencing life. And I don't think a lot of people actually realize the huge wave. That's taking place right now. In the field of new tropics are is he specific nutrients and or foods herbs supplements? And it's this category of these things that really helped to optimize mental performance. And I also don't think because a lot of people looking in the field of smart drugs, they they go there with nutro picks, and understanding that even a lot of those things are based on real foods based on things that have been utilized for thousands of years in. They're extracting. In, like a small component of that thing, and not extracting and getting all of the incredible cofactors at do other cool things. So I want to share this with you. And this was published in the peer reviewed journal. Evidence based complementary and alternative medicine. Something that you might even have in your cabinet right now might not be the best.

Processing Our Collective Grief
"Thanks so much for joining me for session one sixty, two of the therapy for black girls podcasts. Much of what we've been experiencing in various ways over the past couple of months is grief. Grief related to the loss of loved ones are previous way of life and our ideas about what twenty twenty would look like. To help us dig a little deeper into what grief looks like given our current state of affairs. Dr Address Robinson returns with us as a guest. Dr Robinson is a licensed clinical professional counselor trauma in grief expert, first generation trauma in poverty disruptor. She is the founder and executive director of friends in transition, counseling services a trauma center, mental health practice located in, but there's the Maryland. She's also the CEO of Legacy Wellness Group A conglomerate of enterprises dedicated to promoting generational will education and healing. Dr Robinson and I chatted about our collective sense of grief. How rituals around grief have been up into? The importance of processing symbolic is and her thoughts about the work that will need to be done on the other end of the pandemic. If you. Hear something that resonates with you are listening. Please remember share with us on social media using the HASHTAG TV G in session. My apologies in advance as we did have some tech issues with this. He is our conversation. Thank you so much for being with us today. Dr Robinson and keep from for having me. Yeah I'm very happy that you were able to join us. Again I'm joined US recession thirty one of the PODCAST, and so it feels very timely to have you back given that it feels like much of what we have been dealing with into twentieth. When he is grief, APP totally I think one of the things that has really profound for me. Is that for the first time in a very long time? I think we're all experiencing or noticing the collective were using that doesn't always have to really with people dying. That's happening by. By recognizing that Greece Minnesota as a result of other experiences, as well and I think that opening up a dialogue that we haven't had happy to have it while. Yeah, you talked about that a lot on your last visit. You know that grief is much more than just US losing loved ones. Can you talk a little bit about some of those symbolic losses are lutely so I. I say that grief is a universal experience that is unique for each of us, and so we will navigate of spaces, non linear processes. Daughter triggered by not just the death of a loved one, but some of these data they lost weeks. Such as things are really being amplified right now because of endemic and other racial injustices, her occurring such as a safety, emotional logical, and for some physical as well loss of stability loss of routine loss of some of these milestones, anniversaries on a lost the crucial loss of income loss of identity, all of those are symbolic losses. Here's the thing the body doesn't know a lot of symbolic in Greece, the saints as if the loss is. It's so important because often hear people minimize the losses because no one died right and that it's an it's an unfair comparison to make it is a unique experience in the body is going to do grief work regardless of what the trigger is, so that's important. Just no one understands that is such an important point. A little bit more about how Greece's sometimes shows up in our body absolutely, and so it can show up physically in our body and often times. That is what personal lurch. Is Okay so physically feeling. We might feel pain or stomach. It might be when she I issues. Such just normal pain, right? What feels like issues digesting food in. Maybe you know but. He's like diarrhea. Things like that. We feel it in our shrink even numbness in extremities. It's pretty common chest pain, Migraines, losses memory concentration all of those faith. Even we've seen folks present the tree issues right, but feel like can be our physical or biological nature, who really be psychosomatic complaints as a result of. And trauma right instead the body scores. All of that especially, if in a prolonged activated state like we have been in this pandemic of now followed up with the racial injustice. Occurring all of those things are heightened states of being which requires the body to operate on a very different level, which often means we are heightened cortisol levels, which is never great. We're on the body, right. And launch. All of those things are aren't. And trauma that we may not necessarily coat reading
Are You Addicted to Being Busy?
"About what happens when you have absolutely nothing to do. Do you feel anxious just thinking about that? Are you stressed. Are you worried underneath? That thought that you'll be unproductive or waste time. And does the thought of having no plans Kinda. Hurt your stomach a little. What if I add on? Be, careful here unplugging. My God. My heart just leapt a little. So we must be honest with ourselves. And take a look at how we are moving through our days. These conversations that we're having around being aware. That were quote wasting time, and then beating ourselves up silently of course about. Wasting time? And then we morph that idea into. How then do we become more productive sewer optimizing our time? We're scheduling our time and then. I hear all the time that. Statement. That I'm crazy. Busy I say it to when I say I'm crazy busy. It means that I'm crazy. Busy from ten am to five PM. And then I shut my staff down. For the most part, it becomes a little difficult when I'm trying to get more than eight hundred thousand followers on Instagram, but you now I'm. A work in progress. Are you a slave to your inbox. INBOXES are nut so crazy and I don't have a ton of people. Me for super important reasons. But I do find myself checking and wanting to clear my ex of junk mail. That's a little worrisome. Another question I ask my peeps is. Do you feel guilty when you only crossed that one thing off your to do list? and Are you often losing sleep because of those things that you didn't cross off, let me interject that this whole idea. This compulsive ity we have around being productive and doing more things. As a little wonky when you think about. The technology that we have is supposed to save us time. Why do we feel like we need to fill it with other things? I want a slow nope. I don't even want to slow. The role. I would like us to be aware that. This does not bring internal happiness. And as long as we continue on this path of the freeing up of more time, must then be filled with productive or meaningful or purposeful work. As opposed, to purposeful being. Hanging. Reading. Then I. Think we're headed for big time. Trouble or my Biz as we say job. Security S Mental Health and addiction counselor. I know that's not supposed to be funny, but I thought I'd throw that in there just for you know. Oh well. Okay so I am going to read you a list number one. Are you always looking for something? This is not always menopause like myself, forgetfulness or other things it can be. The stress Hormone Cortisol, which we have seen the panacea drugs for, but this actually makes us forgetful so when we're stressed out combined with sleep deprivation. That's eight hours or less for me, then we become more forgetful. Are you a little grumpy moody? Getting angry over littlest things? That's also a sign of overindulging in too much productivity. Yeah! I just said that. You're not getting enough sleep. You're not engaging with people and having fun. You're doing for the sake of doing. Are you waking up most days? Feeling tired morning, fatigue is one of the surest signs that you're overworked, overstretched and over scheduled. Are you frequently experiencing headaches I? Personally suffered from stress migraines. They were happening when there was a lot of change. In my life I never had a migraine headache before then, or since that period, which is pretty spectacular in my world because. It was painful for those of you. WHO SUFFER MY HEART? My heart goes out to you because that's a very difficult thing to live with in the last item on the list is. Do you constantly feel of vague feeling? Of Unhappiness. You can't quite pinpoint what it is, but most days you feel pretty heavy and you me,

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Review
"Been nice to have some some big hits out there. People seem Very focused I know some of. Y'All been plan that final fantasy. Seven remake Hoo. Yeah Lot of it lot of law and you've finished it. I've completed it. I woke up a tried to do it all night. I was coming up on. The end tried to marathon. It through I got until about two. Thirty am with half of a chapter laughed. I just couldn't do. It woke up in the morning had a terrible migraine. Just like killer like lights and sound were just messing with me and I pushed through it just to experience the end of that game because I was so at that point under ideal circumstances. You finish exactly. We're not able to read or see anything happening on the screen. The none of that's important. What was happening. You felt the material and the Muko coursing through you by not understanding the story at the end. It's it's almost like you imported Japanese version of the game. Which is the truest way to play final fantasy seven? So what do you think I mean you know I'm not I'm not gonNA say hey spoil the ending. Though as someone who read what the ending was And for people who are interested in spoiler talk. We will have something for y'all later in the week. Yeah I I think like I feel about it the same way I felt last week I think. Overall for the most part they did a really good job of making a game that I a final fantasy neophyte especially seven could enjoy and have a really good time is carried. It's combat I true. I think the combat in that game is like stellar. Who'd you wind up playing as the most I cloud with like it's cool because each of the characters really does have different uses? Cloud is kind of your most Malleable character you know you can use him to fill in the gaps like Oh. I need a healer. I'm lacking in magic damage. Because the game has you. Has Your party changing up quite frequently throughout the game. Different chapters. You'll be like this one's just two of you guys and this one's three of you but not era there you know not so you can have to be able to mix and match your styles on the go but honestly if I was if I was in a boss fight I was Kinda on On Lock She's saying no fun to play in that game especially when he's mailing in her shortcuts and stuff she has not one that overdrive or something. You can cancel out of a basic attack in two hundred. Does that little drill kick. If she traps where you can drop the orb all my guy locked in play if you match that with like the elemental materia and you like nail it as like the right weakness it's so satisfying because then you also have like the refocus materia and then you just have like three hundred. And you're going Hog wild doing combos. It's insane but at the same time I kind. Of like dismissed. Bear it as like a whatever he's just doing like low. Gps Yes I'd buy. Who will live for a really long time and shoot guys out of the air two jobs as I started experimenting more with his different weapon abilities. And we were talking before the bomb casper like as soon as he gets like the Malay arm and like the abilities unlocks with that is like pretty clutch in the encounters. He has some serious crowd. Control Potential I ended up going with him. He was kind of my support Star I gave him a lot of Buffoni. Buff stuff like hastened You know Zanga is that it the cure version of poison zone or whatever on the TV show. That's what that guy always young young bear. I can't wait I always
Biotech Pipeline Updates
"We're in the middle of the cove in nineteen pandemic is continuing the escalate in California here. We're doing okay. The shelter in place seems to be Instituted in personally in San Diego we've seen the beaches and parks officially closed so that continues to escalate. But you know I'm doing okay out here things. Aren't that bad. As of now the situation does seem to be getting worse. And we're GONNA talk about that a little bit and I also want to talk about a few pipeline updates that we heard from some pretty cool company. So let's start with that and the first company wants to talk about is cassava sciences ticker symbol. Save A for those. Who Don't know but I did do a video on them. Maybe three or four years ago maybe two months and were waiting for their face to be dated. Come Out and this is a twenty eight day trial with their drug. Pti One to five. That is supposed to change the course of the disease in Alzheimer's patients so will we heard a pipeline update and their CEO said that their clinical program show no signs of slowing down. This is good. I think a lot of people weren't concerned in general all biotech virus. It really does get out of hand and trying about SARS cove to it could really interfere with regular clinical trials. Say Half the patients get the virus and have to undergo treatment for flu. That's not ideal when you're trying to just look at eight control and test groups so anyway related to cassava. Apparently their clinical programs are not slowing down and their fees to be trial completed patient enrollment as well as dosing and this is as a march twenty twenty and they mentioned that there were no safety issues found a good thing and then they also said that the company expects to announce top line results approximately mid year twenty twenty and then they also announced that they're going to initiate a one year open label study of the drug. So if this happens to not work out you know. There is a chance that the drug could affect patients in one year's time in case the Twentieth Day treatment isn't quite enough so the details of the trial. Definitely check out my older video on that. I I took a position in the fives that believe in. I think the companies now trading in the threes so I might add a little bit to the position because I did only start scaling in and really looking forward to seeing this readout here in mid twenty twenty because if it is positive the stock it increased substantially so. That's what I'm betting on here. So let's move on. Dvd TECHNOLOGY TICKER SYMBOL DVD. There a allergy company that is kind of competitor to immune even though some people would not consider them necessarily competitors because one obviously is much less effective than the other so the issue with DVD. Tea Is that their skin patch vice skin product. It is less effective than amiens. Oral immunotherapy of the benefit of that is that there are significantly fewer side effects but the issue is the FDA really wants to see that there is efficacy benefit to patients taking this drug or this therapy in order to improve the product. So we saw that Amien got FDA APPROVAL. Finally and that was nice to see and the concerns. There were that the product does have some side effects associated with it. D- On the other hand does not have many side effects but they do happen to have a lack of advocacy so what happened is the FDA identified questions regarding the efficacy of its biologics license application for vice skin peanut in patients with peanut allergy as a result the allergenic. Products Advisory Committee a PAC meeting to discuss. The bialy will no longer take place as previously scheduled so this led to a big drop in the stock and DVD's struggled off and on dealing with the FDA that's manufacturing issues last year. Maybe year more than that. I don't quite remember but I am concerned. This and I don't think it's worth buying the dip. Necessarily if they're able to show efficacy. It's going to be a real problem now. They do have some data coming out soon. That could show. That product does have more efficacy than their other. Trials showed. So if you're looking for a high risk play could do that. I am interested in space. This oral or skin related allergy desensitization. Keeping my both companies and they have taken a big hit in this recent downturn. We've had someone beekeeping my out on them all right. The next company I want to touch on is Viking Therapeutics. And it's been a long time since I talked about them. They are a company that has been Kinda slow too bad but they might have the best in class drug for Nash. It's a thyroid. Receptor Beta agonists. That does really well in lowering liver fat. So the news that we got is that their board is authorized a stock repurchase program whereby the company can repurchase up to fifty million dollars in stock over two years and this came as the market was really coming down. And I'm Kinda surprised because oftentimes these small biotech companies really struggled to raise cash because stock prices so depressed as it's being sold off for some reason. Viking has decided that it's more important for them to kind of artificially increase the stock price by doing a share buyback so as of December twentieth nineteen. They had two hundred fifty seven point six million dollars in cash. They are presenting data from their twenty eighteen trials at conferences which seems like kind of a waste of resources to me and we've really seen the data digested. I don't know what they think they're gonNA get by presenting that data. It's one thing to kind of present the updated data. But we don't really have much of that so for me. This is kind of a strange move and I would much rather than us that fifty million dollars towards anything else that would either increase the likelihood of their pipeline candidates being developed. Or you know hiring people that are good at developing Nash candidates but instead they're just buying back stock so this is not a very encouraging. Move to me. We're we're still in the midst of this case to be trial and we're waiting for that data but one thing. I wanted to notice that I looked at the clinical trials dot gov symbol for for their trial and it looks like the primary outcome is actually twelve week. Mri Data and analyzing liber fat content. The trial started in November twenty nineteen. So this actually a chance that we could see this data in the next six months or so at least before the under twenty twenty. So I'm Kinda keep in mind that and for that reason. I'm not selling any of the Stock. I have even taken quite a hit in the position. The secondary endpoint for this trial is fifty two week resolution of CFO hepatitis. The histology that's the actual biopsy of liver where they're actually going to be able to score it and evaluate. You know whether or not Nash has been resolved to some capacity given the metrics that the FDA wants them to look at but the endpoint. We're going to see. Is this twelve week. Mri data deliver fat content. And we can be pretty confident. That liver fat is going to go down. The patients in this trial are biopsy confirmed. Nash patients so the Bar is raised a little bit higher than their face to a trial. That was just done using. Nfl D. patients which is a milder form. Before you get to Nash Fatty Liver Disease Problems. So that's where Viking the last company. I WanNa talk to you before we get to. Our highlighted story is excellent therapeutics and we heard that they are accelerating the trial completion for a excess zero five typo there in Alzheimer's Disease Agitation to Q. Two rather than Q. Three Twenty Twenty. I hadn't really talked about the disease agitation trial because I think it's their lesser important one. I'm much more excited about the treatment resistant. Depression read out. That should be happening in the next week or so. And there's also going to be read out for x zero seven in migraine. Those are going to be really big moves for the stock and now we can just add another one in Q. Two we're going to see this Alzheimer's Disease Agitation. Xm Is the ticket for axiom. It's been all over the place throughout this whole downturn in the market and I have taken another position or a kind of double down with what I had because I kind of bought it at the top but I do think that they have a good chance of seeing a positive outlook in t already resistant depression and if it is positive. I think it'll be a big mover for the stock because physicians really struggled to treat already so this would be huge for them. So that's kind of where we're at with axiom and I'm looking forward to the date in the next little
Q&A | Your Questions Answered.
"Hello Hi and a particularly warm welcome to the Emma Gun show. I'm your host Emma and we're GONNA wardner and it's time for an ask me anything the Osmania that I asked for questions back in November and December. Just a couple of times. Because I thought it'd be nice to have a conversation with you and also I am publishing this in the middle of the corona virus crisis and a lot of my sheduled poku awes- have been postponed. Don't worry normal service will resume soon but as I put this off because I'd had so many guests recently. I thought actually this is the perfect time August. I'll chat to answer your questions. How lovely how brilliant my most ex. Mrs? I can have a chat on this particular episode. These questions have all come from the facebook. Group linked to join is in the show notes. And I will just say this. I do get asked quite a lot on social media or on email. Where do I find the show notes if you are listening to this episode you all already within the platform the service the provider the website that has the show notes in is just a case of if you're in a particular Internet Internet service provider. Po. 'cause platform you have to click three dots or go to more INFO or swipe the screen or whatever. But you already there. That's why you can find the hyper links with anything mentioned so just a side note. I do hope you're keeping well. I have done a sense check in the facebook group and I said let you still want me to keep creating content. Does it matter if it's not super serious and the overwhelming response has been. Please keep doing it. Please keep doing what you do. We appreciate the destruction. So that's my green light and that's what I'm GonNa keep during the pleased. I think being insensitive and I understand how freaking serious the situation we are in is but shall we go straight. That was taken fingers. Shall we go straight in and this one actually from Nora is quote quite timing? I think she posted a couple of months ago. But the question is hi Emma. My question is about day-to-day Sanity. I guess I don't care much about products and stuff but I'd love to know what you do for clearing head each day and getting rid of or ignoring the build up we get from social media and everyday life. I just learned this week. That climate anxiety is a thing which I now obviously have. What do you tell yourself every day to stay in a positive mood overall? Sorry if this is too vague or something I own only I have. I will admit I'm a bit tipsy nor you in a safe place. Welcome to the group. Welcome to the family. You are definitely Amos decks listener. It's such a good question. I guess we'll say really timely how to not get bogged down mentally how to not think that things how to not get bogged down with negativity how to keep a positive outlook and mindset. When maybe you're dealing with things whatever they might be work life relationships friendships. Whoever whatever I can definitely and I think that's one of the things I talk to. All of my friends had periods of depression or anxiety. All of us who have worked hard and feel like we are able to manage it now will say that it feels like actually having something of a superpower because you can see it coming a mile off which means that you can deploy all relevant tactics to make sure that it stays a good distance and doesn't doesn't want you to put it mildly and actually. I was listening to a podcast with Dr Doctrine. Judge Dee he obviously has been on the show. He had rich role. He was a mega mega focused in the states on his podcast and he was talking about how he was in alcohol recovery and he had a lot and he had a relapse for a few hours but it was quite a significant lab so we had to literally dial back. After thirteen years he had to dial back to zero. His sobriety installed start again and he used the expression which I've since land is is quite common in the fellowship in twelve step programs but he used the expression of. I thought that in recovery I was getting further and further away from my addiction. But what I didn't realize is that my addiction was just doing press ups in the dark waiting for that moment to pounds which I thought was I found quite meeting. I was driving when I was listening to that and I found it quite arresting. It sort of made me go. Wow Gosh and I think that's the same about positive and negative mindsets if you've been through a low period if you've been depressed if you've struggled with your mental health and you feel as though you're through it you sometime you sometimes worry that is it is going to come back quick and fast. Which is why I think you sort of. Almost you have the superpower and you on high alert to see it coming in the distance and as I say deploy all relevant tactics. I know I went up one of ramble. That but what I mean is. I think whether you've had mental health issues on not whether you suffer with depression not with your pessimist or not. I think it's good to check in with yourself just every morning and to say how am I feeling today truth be told I am on day? Eight of south isolating to protect others may not symptomatic. And it's getting to me. Yesterday evening I go to Migraine. My jaw is incredibly tight. I woke up this morning. I was weeping. I really want to count this morning and I felt am. I could feel right. Day has the potential to be one of those days. I could let drive me Rothman. I-drive it so I wrote my Yoga Mat. I did a latest stretching. I stretch my neck out. I did look deep breathing. I spend a Lotta time in childs pose and I was able to actually lessen the how the feeling of the Migraine and then just get going but it was because when I served it systems check when I woke up with all yeah. Something's definitely wrong. You know that chipper today so I did what I thought would be the right thing. I didn't work out sometimes working out the answer. Sometimes it's not intuitively. I felt like being really gentle with myself was the answer this morning. I have contact lenses in. I haven't put makeup on blow dry. My Hair I've done a bit of Yoga and now I'm just very gently sitting at my desk token to you. It's very very easy to consume social media. What's the news and failures are? Everything is Blake. I do feel like especially with the news. I don't often have news television on so when I think about I say don't often have it. I've never really had the news on. I'm not one of those people who engages in televise news that way. I've always really when using the newspapers bought. I remember if I think about significant events. I think about things like nine eleven or elections and that was when I would watch televised news and the screens would be breaking news. This that and the screens would be very automated. That'd be lots of Red. That be lots of you. Know the thing scrolling across screen going up in so you can't be stimulated and then on a normal news cycle. Those things wouldn't happen and recently when I've engaged in news channels not just in recent times maybe in the last couple of years or so. I've noticed that they the the way that the television screen the laid out is in a similar way to win what we used to associate with really really big news events. And it's just it's just to keep watching because let's face it TV channels businesses. And they have the things are so. I tend not to engage in those sorts of televised news channels too much because I find that breaking news thing. It takes me back to other instances other periods of history. That perhaps went so great so my advice to you is particularly around the time now. I know we're not going to talk to you much by the coin virus but my advice now is watch Your leaders daily address. We've forced onto during every day in the UK look at twitter. Don't re tweet or re grammar anything. They'll get your news from there and just look at trusted resources and I did a podcast recently on some really good sources of information on what's going on at the moment they're not sensationalized that with epidemiologist who are experts in infectious disease. So not only is it. James Elles doing brilliant content at the moment where he just keeping everybody updated by speaking to experts analyzing the data on a week by week basis. But also there's some brilliant stuff with Joe Rogan with an expert in infectious disease called Micro Asta home that really kind of explains the genesis of all of these sorts of things and one of the things he says during the pause because Jerry says he's you're making me nervous Michael and he said I'm yeah and by the end of this episode. We'll talk about how not to be nervous. So I feel like they're more helpful resources so in terms of clearing your head and ignoring the bill that we from social media and Everyday Life. I would really choose carefully. What it is that you can see what media you consume and who you listen to and who you
What Is Leaky Gut And How Can You Treat It? with Dr. Elizabeth Boham
"Day. We're going to talk about leaky gut. Which is something that is starting to be in the awareness of traditional medicine but they still don't have a clue how to diagnose it and how to treat it so tell us I what is leaky gut. Yeah so so. Many people are like saying the word leaky gut leaky gut. But officially right the official medical term is increased intestinal permeability and I love to draw picture for all my patients when they come in to really show them what we mean by increased intestinal permeability in the limoges good. I don't know I'm still drawn each side mirrors smart so we know there's this one cell layer right there's that one cell layer the end of the Vienna. Theam that divides the inside of the intestine. Right so where. The food is and all sorts of other things the protest. Gi Tract is a tube outside of your body right. I mean it's a protected to put food in Santa comes out the other side and literally like not really part of your body in the sensitive stuff inside is yet in your body. So but there's that cell layer that has to determine what should come into my body right and what shouldn't what's been properly digested food you know has this. Has this protein been broken down enough yet? should this come in. Should they should. I absorb this or should stay out to that filter coffee filter. You don't want the grounds getting your coffee but drain the good stuff getting it and that sort of how you're supposed to work. That's that's great. Yeah cousins like you have holes in your coffee filter and stuff leaks through right. And why is that a problem right because that stuff leaking through? That might be a food particle. That's not digested enough yet. Or it could be a bacteria or a bug a fungus or something. That's shouldn't be getting into the body. Some of the not so good bacteria and and when when those things that they get into the body when they're not supposed to then they can trigger all sorts of other symptoms in the body and that might be symptoms of inflammation. So somebody might feel like joint pain or asthma congestion. It may trigger and there's been a lot of studies to show this. It can trigger auto immunity rights all kinds of our Mallika. But we know what's interesting? Is that most diseases. That are chronic. Diseases are inflammatory diseases heart. Disease Cancer Diabetes Alzheimer's Stroke. I mean these are all inflammatory diseases. Even depression is inflammatory disease of the brain. Add is inflammation of the autism summation of the brain. And so. What's really interesting about this gut issue? Is that when the barrier breaks down? And you'll basically like An area the size of a tennis court if you're out flat and it's like you know one. Celtic so you basically went cell away from sewer you know on the other side important salary and that can get damaged when that does things leak in like you said and you've got sixty percent of your immune system right under that layer Which then reacts to whatever's coming through this supposed to come through so your body's actually doing its job creating inflammation Yup. It's just that your guts leaky getting it shouldn't be getting it right. And then and then you start to not feel so good like you mentioned fatigue or brain fog or or joint pain or swelling in the body. We see a lot of people holding onto water or or swelling or congestion. Asthma and then that whole cycle of auto immunity also. Yeah so it's it's really You know one of the most prevalent problems and so why are we having all this leaky gut right? That's a great question right and it's so much because of our crummy food supply. What do we know about that to me? I food supply that we've been putting a bunch of pesticides and antibiotics into which is just shifting our micro biota and life. Assi from the Round Up the weed killer. That's almost are. Gmo foods and even wheat products and is one of the biggest damages of your microbiome. Forget that it causes cancer whether you can argue that or not but it does disrupt your microbiome right right and you know we of course are trying as physicians not to prescribe as much antibiotics for our patients but so many of us have taken unfortunately too many antibiotics and then our food supply right. You know we're using so much antibiotics and our food supply to grow bigger cows for example. And that's just shifting our whole that whole macrobiotic in our gut. It's true and I I read a paper recently about Emulsifiers and food which is using all processed food to make dick or solidify it. Hold it together. And these Mosa fires like Karen Gina and anthem gum and even the microbial translate Tammy's which is basically bacteria made gluten can believe that and the reasons call. Gluten is because it's like glue make things together make the food stick together right but is highly damaging to the gut and you've got all these processed food ingredients in food that are linked to auto immunity. Yep Right so it's not even a and then of course the starch and the sugar the process oils all damage your gut. And then of course the lack of Fiberg lack of phytochemicals in our diet right. You'd foods prebiotic foods probiotic foods like Sauerkraut for lunch yesterday. I mean we don't need that stuff and it's so important we've seen so much damage to our gut because of all these various factors in our diet and then of course there's an acid blockers that we take for everything anybody because you mentioned hormones can mess up your gut bacteria. Steroids can do it and she ended up with. Antibiotics obviously ended up with this horrible cascade of people with gut issues. It's the number. One reason people go to the doctor much of it now. It's it's crazy isn't it? I mean it's so many people are coming in with with digestive issues with And symptoms of inflammation in their body. But it's it's really common even people coming to US for other reasons. We're seeing okay. It's the guy we've got to start with the guy and and pay attention to what's going on there. We'll flexible. Medicine has been thinking about this for decades microbiome revolution restocking about it. This huge industry development around and there was talking about probiotics and that and we've been focusing for decades on the simple fact that most of our chronic illnesses start in the gut asking whatever the name of the problem you have whether it's Migraines or whether it's depression or whether it's diabetes or obesity rate or autism or whatever you gotta start with the GUT and and traditional medicine like leaky God is not a thing like you go to the doctor if you ever arthritis and I'm like how's your gut cardiology. How's your gut? Even though there's so much research showing the connection you don't get train. Right is just huge gap. Right now where. The science has advanced so far but the practice hasn't right and in functional medicine. We've been really great at actually getting the memo that the GUT is at the center of our health. Right so for years ray we. We've learned about that five. Our program with functional medicine and how helpful that can be to heal the digestive system and then and then he'll all these symptoms or diseases that somebody has means amazing. I'm talking to the CEO. Cleveland Clinic recently and was telling me about studies that he'd heard about that had used fecal transplants in autistic kids and taking the poop out of a healthy kid and put a million autistic kid and the kid autism goes away. It's phenomenal. I mean that's not true for all kids with autism. But it's funny. Yes it's amazing transplants from people who are thin to people who are diabetic and their blood. Sugar gets better right. I mean I had a guy once who was a really great patient and he was very poorly controlled diabetic on lots of medications and we worked on. His Diet helped a lot to down from two hundred to like the one twenty or so we can get it all the way down with a really good diet and exercise and he was telling me he had a bunch of digestive issues. And so I said you know. Why don't you take some charcoal and do this and do that? And he called me back. He says I don't happen but my lectures went to ninety S. We absorbed all the toxic crap in his gut that was causing inflammation that was causing his blood sugar and bounce and these are the kinds of things that we do every day in functional medicine but that are not part of traditional care and people are missing out on right right. When we're saying why is that. Why is this going on? How do we get underlying cause for that individual
How Stress Has Affected My Business
"Do you ever go to bed feeling a sense of worry a sense of not sure if things are gonna work how a sense of anxiety and you basically just get knocked out because you're so tired from all the work you've done but then you wake up the next morning and you feel just the same. You don't feel any relief. You feel the same way the same anxiety that same weird butterfly feeling in your stomach while I have. And it's been very common in the last twelve months for me. I wake up with a sense of I need to get things done. A sense of warriors sense of anxiety and feeling of a mountain of stress on my shoulders feeling of every single thing that I had to do was critical like life or death and I built it up in my head that way regardless. If it's true or not that's how I felt the past. I have fallen ill more than I ever had in the past decade and a pretty healthy guy healthy. I exercise four to five times a week. I try to get as much sleep as possible. Eight hours a night health priority for me but stress does not care about what you do. It will still affect you no matter what you do whether you exercise or eat right. Get enough sleep. It will penetrate through all that and it will affect your immune system. What happens is basically your body's on overdrive constantly. It's like your flooring. The gas pedal on your car always every time you hit accelerator your flooring at. You're really pushing your car to the limits. Every single time the longevity of that car is just not going to be. They're going to be in the shop constantly and that's what happens. Your body just gets sick and I'm talking about just fallen. Ill getting the flu or getting a cold. Having headaches migraines really and it's kind of hard for me to admit this is kind of hard for me to share this because I think I'm pretty mindful guy but I really didn't realize how much stress was affecting me. I didn't even make the connection that the reason why I was feeling that way is because I was so stressed out. Just thought hey. I'm an entrepreneur. This is the last solvent entrepeneurship. Work hard you gotTa Hustle. You got to Do a billion things to make a billion things change in your business to improve right but I realize I have to ask the question at what cost. What am I paying to do that? Right and I'm paying with my health and paying with my Enjoyment of life. My sense of feeling that everything's GonNa be okay and that has a lot to do with the expectations. I put myself because of the goals I put out there for the business now. I'm not saying not to be ambitious or to lower your standards. I'm saying understand that everything has a price so you don't have to pay a price you don't want to you. Make up the rules a book that I read recently. That helped me realign my expectations. Real Line my understanding of what it means to run a business is. It doesn't have to be crazy at work by Jason freed and David Hammer Hanson. These are the guys that are behind the company base camp and they've been running their company for almost twenty years and they have a different philosophy about work and they're in the tech industry which is hyper competitive and it's all about hustle and working hard and you know stress levels were through the roof and they say nope doesn't have to be that what you make up the rules. You can work forty hours a week. You could work thirty hours a week. In fact base camp has four day weeks Four Day workweeks on during the summer months and yet they're a highly successful company they attract the best talent. They produce great work. That made me scratch my head. Maybe I'm doing this wrong cry. It's kind of hard because you're in the midst of it all in your trying everything you can to grow your business and for me. I felt like I could do more. I could do more. I could do more not understanding that everything has a cost. I started to realize that I was spending. You know close to fifteen hours a day on my computer. I was spending very little time. Recreationally like going for a walk or very little time Maybe going to a movie or a concert. We're having fun on the weekends. I was working through the weekends even even though I would advise against that but you know I had a few projects I wanted to get done at a few things in play a few hours here and few ours becomes you know ten hours what I realized is what's going on here. Is I had my priorities upside down. I built a business and I'm trying to fit my life into the business instead of saying. Hey how do I wanna live kind of life? Do I WANNA HAVE? And what kind of business will help me live that life? That's why I got into entrepreneurship in the first place. That was the intention and I was like that for a good three four years but things changed and my life wasn't a priority anymore My ambitions to grow my business and to build new things started to grow and I lost sight of y started this all and because of this is starting to really get stressed out a really started to feel unhappy physically mentally emotionally week after week month after month and I didn't even realize it. That's the thing about stress. You don't even realize it when it's happening you just think it's normal and that's why I call stress silent killer. I also started to evaluate. You know how much time do I have? You know? I turned forty this year and you know forties super but for the most part if I took a look at the average lifespan Entering the second half of my life meaning from this point on I've lived more than I'm to live you know we don't know when we're GONNA pass away. We don't know when it's going to be the end for us. But if I just take you know trips of life expectancy your statistics time is more precious than ever right my free time. My time with my loved ones time with my friends. My overall a feeling of happiness and satisfaction means more. Now it means a lot more every single day moving forward in that stock rises. And if I don't make some changes where I can let gold little pin and realize. Hey this is serious. I'm getting tired. It's affecting my life. Things will not change. Now it's really affected my business because I was making some really poor decisions at times because I was so stressed because of SOS tired because I was under a lot of pressure. You make bad decisions it cascades. That decision domino effects and causes a lot of issues in. Your Business. Your job as a leader of your business is to make the right decision to make the right decisions as much as possible and if your number one job is to make decisions and that Ability is compromised because of stress. You're in trouble and often when I look back the reason why I was stressed I created the that environment I created the environment to allow that stress to enter When it didn't have
Why Do We Get Brain Freeze?
"Headaches for a lot of reasons. Sometimes foods like chocolate cheese or cured meat can cause them other times it stress or maybe changes in our sleep habits headaches are also caused by strain sinus problems coughing and even sex. And if you're really unlucky there a sign of neurological problems. But do you know what causes headaches over one third of the population ice cream diabolical evil ice cream otherwise known as a brain freeze or a quote cold stimulus headache in more lofty circles. The ice cream headache only requires two things first. Something cold touching the roof of your mouth and second hot environment like a summer day or Asana or a yoga class full of sweaty people. That's where we all usually eat ice cream right. Brain freeze is caused by both a constriction and dilation of the blood vessels in your head. There's a nerve center just above your mouth and when it gets cold it signals the anterior cerebral artery to widen trying to heat your brain with warm blood. Since the skull is a closed structure. The sudden rush of blood could be increasing pressure which causes the pain. We feel it's kind of a horrible stabbing achey feeling but the warm air around you causes these blood vessels to restrict again relieving the pain about ten to twenty seconds after its onset. This experience is reportedly similar to a migraine headache albeit a very short one it's possible. The influx of blood is supposed to protect your brain from extreme cold. The pain is usually in the mid frontal area but it can be unilateral in other parts of the brain. But don't worry. Experts say that ice cream isn't going to give you brain damage or anything in fact when they're correcting aneurysms doctors sometimes low your brain temperature down to sixty four degrees. Fahrenheit or seventeen point eight degrees Celsius so ice cream. Ain't no thing. Except there's only one cure for brain freeze. Never eat ice cream again. No I'm just kidding in one article about these headaches. A researcher actually said ice cream. Abstinence is not indicated so keep eating all the ice cream you want but slow it down a bit there. Hawse try to eat in small bites and avoid the roof of your mouth also. You may be more likely to get brain freeze if you already get migraines. The science isn't confirmed on that but since the vascular response of ice cream headaches is similar to the experience of migraine sufferers they may be more vulnerable. Researchers are investigating this connection now in hopes of developing. Even better painkillers.
"migraine" Discussed on Science Friday
"It this is science Friday. I'm IRA flato a few weeks ago. I was sitting here at my desk in the radio studio reading something off a page and all of the sudden some of the words on the paper at the end of the sentence on the left side got a little fuzzy and gray and the effect lasted just about five minutes and then everything everything went back to normal. But it got me worried so I went to my neurologist. Who said he suspected what I had experienced was actually a type of my Green Green Migraine? I didn't have any pain. How could this have been a migraine? It was only my vision that was impacted in lasted just a few minutes. Well it sounded sounded a lot like what David from Anchorage called in about on our science. Friday vox pop APP. I have a form of Migraine that does not lead to a massive headache attic but to a visual aura that grows over my visual field. It appears as lines and triangles that rapidly shift between black and white And that's what my doctor called an ocular migraine. Something that happens in your eye. And if you're a migraine sufferers or a migraine Rainer as we are called your experience could be totally different from mine or David's you may be sensitive to light or to sound you you may have a pain at sharp like knife or Dahlan pulsating migraine triggers. Run the gamut from eating too many sweets to drinking red wine not getting enough sleep. MIGRAINES will speak of all kinds of triggers. So I can each person's Migraine be so different and can there ever be a treatment at that cures all migrants well the FDA recently approved a new drug for treating acute migraine attacks. Called you bro Japan. It's it's one in a new class of medications. That targets a critical receptor in the migraine path between the brain. And could it be the miracle. Drug migraine sufferers well. Well we've been waiting for well we've got a lot of questions about Migraine and if you experience them You probably do if you do want to hear from you. Eight four four seven two four eight two who five five or you can tweet us at Scifi. Tell us what your migraine feels like. Have you had any success in treating them yourself. We can't really prescribe. Describe anything for you. Personally it's just unethical and we really don't know who you are so we will try to answer as many questions about the different symptoms of Migraine whether a universal treatment horizon and to answer this questions are my two guests like do PD goat. Speed professor of neurology at the University of California San Francisco and King's College London. Welcome Dr Goats are thank you for having me welcome Dr Elizabeth loader Professor of Neurology at Harvard Med and chief of the division of headache in the Department of Neurology at Brigham and Women's Hospital. She's here in New York Studios. Welcome thanks for having let me begin with your doctor loader. The very basic question. What exactly is a Migraine? There's so many different symptoms. Is there a universal definition for There there are widely accepted criteria for or making the diagnosis of Migraine and features that we look for in order to diagnose migraine. It's a common costly and longlasting illness where people bull are susceptible to repeated attacks of head pain that can be severe and some of the things we look forward to make the diagnosis include head pain. That is predominantly predominantly on one side of the head pain that is moderate to severe intensity pain that is usually lasting four to seventy two hours makes it impossible to be physically active And is throbbing in intensity not everybody has all of those features but most people in addition to that head pain and we'll also have nausea vomiting sensitivity to light or sound. So those are some of the things we ask about when we're trying to make diagnosis and then there's my kind that I had. There's your kind as well about twenty to thirty percent of people who have migraine also experience migraine Aura They don't necessarily have it with every headache. And they don't necessarily Sarah have a headache with the AURA It's very noticeable. And so when it happens as in your case people typically will go to the doctor or to the the emergency department and get a diagnosis. I've been told that it. That migraine runs on the female side of families. Is that correct. I'm not so sure that's true. It's not not entirely clear. The genetics of Migraine our focus of intense. Study Right now. It is true that about half of people with Migraine have a family member with the illness in. Its very clearly something. something that is genetically influenced some very rare single gene types of migraine exist but for the majority of people who have common garden. Variety righty migraine at. It's almost certainly apologetic disorder where there are a number of genes contributing to risk. A doctor goes beyond mentioned in the introduction. How many people talked about all the triggers? I that there are from migraine. Some people say they're triggered by light. Some people can be triggered by eating sweet things not getting enough sleep A. Why are these triggers? Doug it got to be so different one of the things we learning about trig firstly that variable because humans are variable and migraine manifesto migraine manifestations while there's a very clear coal that Dr Load just pointed out there is considerable variability in the individual manifestation of the disorder. Same thing applies to triggers. An important thing we've found. I think we've understood bettering. The price elastic is it not all triggers visit triggers Of what I mean by that is that there's a phase of the attack before the pain comes the so-called premonitory phase when and someone might sought to feel a brain fog concentration problems. Some mood changed. I feel sleepy tied Yawn. Oddly die might pass. It's more urine or they might crave sweet or savory things and this may go on for hours or days before the paint starts. It's clear that some of the soak some things are being attributed to triggers. Or actually the premonitory Faisal the attack starting so for example. If you're sensitive to light in the premonitory FIS and that happens hundreds of times you might come to the conclusion that off the light exposure. Because you sensitive in you notice it then you'll headache develops what's actually what's going on. Biologically is the tech already started. And that's why you sensitive to light so some of these triggers out triggers a toll their invitation title to understand the disorder. Better you know when I when I was talking about this on twitter is tweeting about this people. The the number of reactions you get you. You don't don't realize how many people have migraines until you start talking about it and then people will come up with all different things that they've tried that they've done A lot of people said that once once they've had migraines their whole lives once they got menopause. They went away. Dr Laura well we hear all kinds of things And no one thinks seems to be true for absolutely everybody. We tend to hear about it when people have sudden remission of their attacks and if it happens in association with something that's very noticeable like menopause It often is attributed to that whether that's true in any individual cases somewhat difficult. Tell you're you're absolutely right. Though about the number of people who have migraine and it's it's interesting that you got so many reactions on twitter. You should try being a headache specialist in going to a party Any sort of gathering we hear a lot about it and and the reason is it's it's so incredibly common. It is by conservative estimates something that affects thirty eight million people in the United States. It's long lasting and the majority of people who have it have onset before the age of thirty five you exception. That's amazing a doctor goes. Do we know what is happening. In the brain that causes or when a migraine takes over we not quite a bit about it it's It is a Brian Diseases. You've said it's what you'd call a network Brian Disease. So there were Areas in the Brian that are interacting with each other and they start interacting Patton. That's abnormal dysfunctional. Much of it starts from a deep part of the brain some apart. Cooled the hypothe- lamas that's involved in very primitive driving very primitive things are Wanting to eat wanting to sleep Wanting to pass year and for example these areas dysfunction and the patent with which the dysfunction determines much about the manifestation of the Tuesday say yes. Brian Imaging helped us a lot in nailing down beginning to now down some of the important biology and dispelling any meath. That migraine is anything other than serious. And Biologically determined problem and Dr Gadsby. Let's talk about this new class of FDA approved drugs that have. I've been coming out to tell us what they are. And how are they different from. Earlier generations of migraine drugs getting you classier referring to a cold died g pencil so get pants. It depends which side of the Atlantic Really WanNa sit on on any pronunciation at the moments fine they're called. CGIP as you said. Calcitonin gene related related PIP. Todd to it's closer friends receptor antagonists. I block that receptor a- As you said they being the being developed because CGIP's is involved Importantly in parts of the signaling process the the network abnormality that's going on in Migraine a nice. Stop the effect of of sage. Ip can they can. They be used both for treatment and prevention. Like what you. Yeah yeah you specifically about you bro. Japan which is being developed a product libel reliable in the FBI liable for acute treatment. It has a cousin Gold Toe Japan that is being developed. full prevention one of the probably most disruptive things that's happening now now thinking is is that as one understands the biology better. You can manipulate the medicine. He might say to suit the patient. Hi Sean needs rather than trying to squeeze patient into the boxes that we have full them so far. Let's be clear that you brought Japan noted preventive but the the concept being evolved. Hi Dr Loader is it working. I mean I've heard miraculous stories about these drugs. Well I I haven't used Yugo Japan. It's been recently approved by the FDA FDA. So I haven't had a chance to use it but in the clinical trials. I think you link on your website to an article that reports on some of the clinical trials. And if you look at how many people who take the medicine have improvement of their pain at two hours. Forty nine percent of people who took placebo had improvement compared with sixty one percent of the drug so so clearly. It's more effective than placebo. It doesn't work for everybody but nothing we have does It's wonderful to have medicines that work in new ways because every a new treatment provides a a an additional option that we can offer to patients and some of them have Important attributes fewer side effects and so on and so forth. Well well we're GONNA take a break and as you can imagine when I mentioned before when you start talking about we have. We don't have you at a dinner party. Where have you here right in the seat to answer all these questions number? Eight four four seven two four eight two five five talking with Dr Elizabeth Loader of a Harvard Med school.

"Is the the migraine headaches muscle growth is muscle cramps the doctor pro the listed because in this is this is associated with a lack of magnesium in the body simply a lack of magnesium holy cow it's nothing to really mess around with now what happens is that many of them in your body for the calcium to be absorbed so it's it's a necessary thing in order to get the first component which is calcium that's right they work in combination with each other there's many more practical applications of this calmac formula first of all I guess that you drink it they'll get into your system one of the first things we use it for our clinic is for people who are under a lot of stress and they can't sleep well at night it works better than anything I've ever seen for people that have trouble sleeping because it relaxes your body needs to actually fill the relaxation after you during the day after you drink a Cup of the California interesting and the other thing that it's really really good for people who are in pain okay I have a whole bunch of stories to tell you and and that case studies of people actually taking the calmac formula and getting rid of pain this is included arthritic type pain fibromyalgia which is a form of arthritis back pain is muscle spasms migraine headaches there's a whole category of very that like to discuss with you wow that's fantastic some of those things that you've name seemed to be age related or or things that we experience as we grow older is there a link there yeah there's a vicious circle that I'd like to discuss what happens is that when a person has a magnesium deficiency we may need them they don't absorb their food what is really going to what we call malabsorption syndrome which million the million Americans have and it's not like you feel sick or you know that that you might be over time you start to feel more tired and tired and tired if the real gradual over time type of thing and a lot of people justify that they're getting all the Disney more breast or whatever right that's what I would think that what happens is that when when you get less absorption you actually increase the deficiency in your system of magnesium and that started to take the calcium out of the phones if they're getting phone line you start getting model lock because it also reduces the muscle mass and pretty soon before you know it you are feeling old yeah anybody they actually started to manifest that well all due to a simple lack of these nutrients together many of the now let me tell you and it is a symbol of the problem in being a doctor researcher and how to get this into the system the formula we have the calmac formula is so fantastic because get the powder form you take hot water you may give you put it in a Cup take a teaspoon of the powder and mix it in yeah and you drink this Cup down this great life story is really incredible because it it actually goes right into your bloodstream all right this is probably a good time folks if you want to get.

"How many migraines do thinks she has? LEXI got through that situation last year and then for the rest of the summer she really had maybe a few you two or three migraines the course of three months since then that last fall and the winter she was completely migraine free <hes>. I think she might have had some triggers here. In there that was more considered like a headache but not necessarily migraine and then recently. We've had a challenge. Let me reverse back to that. <hes> so she was migraine free most of the winter and <hes> she was off the medicine completely pretty much think the last in the last three months she recently got caught into a migraine again and so she's dealing with some of this right now. Thankfully we've been able to move more quickly with medicine since we know what medicine works and <hes> she seeing a little relief right now but she's had one <hes> actually recently for about thirty days which is tough for her but <hes> showing some some improvement currently yeah that's hard we only have a couple of minutes is left and I have to ask this question. Dr Stevenson because I get asked all the time and <hes> gluten free diets are very popular and and is there a role for the gluten free diet in migraine prevention. I I don't think that there is a role for any elimination diet unless there is a clear trigger so if someone were to eat gluten and consistently get an attack or have a lot of gluten that I would think that's a reasonable food sensitivity. I mean Celia disease. Being a real disease. We have an allergy is is one thing but even that is not a known migraine trigger. You know we don't we don't propose that anyone is on any particular. Elimination nations diet without good reason well. I'm glad to hear you say that because a lot of people <hes> when their kids are experienced any kind of pain or allergy start really severely severely restricting what their kids are eating and you know that can do them more harm than good and finally Dr Stevenson. Do you think there's an allergic component component to migraine. I know you say you know. Stay away from foods at begin to trigger. Do you think that's because there's a an allergic component opponent there. I think there's a sensitivity so again. The nitrates we know can actually cause dilation of the blood vessels that mimic a migraine and can probably trigger a migraine but it's not a true allergy <hes> same thing with other triggers they probably have they lead to some chemical reaction in the brain yep wonderful well. Keith do you you have final thoughts for the parent who sitting out there listening thinking <hes> <hes> my child gets a lot of headaches and I don't know where to start and I went. went to my pediatrician and they kind of said well. <hes> you know just use tylenol. What would you say to the parent who thinks Gee Whiz? I think my chats headaches are not the norm I would say a couple things. One <hes> is to be an aggressive advocate for your child child. <hes> if it's not working and you don't feel the treatment is working with the current physician seek other options <hes> there's lots options out there and and work quickly because you know it's it's a hard thing to have to live with as a kid <hes> I would also add that that the relationship with your child is really important in these situations so you you know you really need to embrace your child strengthened their relationship you have with him or her. Try and understand in their mind. This is a really big event and it's a lot of pain and you can't avoid it so I would pay extra attention and give that child the support because they're going to need the positive positive reinforcement and they're going to need some of the work on their behalf as advocate so that there's a good amount of hope and progress can be made otherwise is a.

"Trigger LEXI's headaches because it triggers moms headaches so oh things like bananas things like packaged foods that had a lot of preservatives and M._S._G.. We could see a correlation so we need to cut those out right away and <hes> and she jumped on the train very quickly impressively but of course that's lexi style. She gets it done. Quick so well and I'll tell you the truth when you're in pain an and some of the the the kids I've seen in the most pain are migraine sufferers <hes> Dr Stevenson. Can you give us a list of foods stat people who have migraine kits have migraines should avoid and then if there are other foods that actually help a migraine. What would those be so? I what what should should kids avoid. Your parents have their kids void. There's no standard list. Some people have sensitivities to certain foods so again we don't report a total elimination in Diet but we do ask people to track their headaches and see if there's a pattern wherein the twelve hours prior to a headache onset they may have had a certain food and really the main foods that are the the the worst offenders for being migraine triggers mostly junk foods so that would be foods that include M._S._G.. So the typical being Chinese food but M._S._G.. is also in lots of other products that you have to read label. A lot of those products are kind of brightly orange colored and probably shouldn't be at all <hes> preservatives such as nitrates which are used on a lot of smoked meat Salamis Pepperoni they can trigger migraines certain <hes> cheeses smoked cheddars and smoked cheeses can cause headaches chocolate has been known to be a trigger for headings which is really a sin and it's one of my favorite peanut MMS yeah Yup Caffeine has been known to be a trigger. I mean other people I've seen people be sensitive to yogurt to chocolate milk to bananas and but these are these are a little bit more rare so there's I again. I wouldn't <music> a necessarily an elimination diet. Healthy Diet is good and skipping meals can be as bad as actually not as actually eating one of the triggers yeah so I yeah I think what you're saying. Is You really need to do detective work with your kids and see okay what what did that child eat twelve hours before a headache and you know what made it worse. I have seen even kids who chew Sugar Free Gum. It triggers a headache. I don't know if it's a chewing motion or parts the new artificial preservatives aspertain whatever isn't sugar free gum so you really have to do some detective work I think as a parent parents I hope you're enjoying my conversation with Keith de Marino and Dr Donna Stevenson..

"You've seen a lot of kids with migraines. How what percent of kids are what's the prevalence of migraines in kids in the country so that's a great question and we have a lot of data to suggest that headache is much more common than we think in children it turns out that in multiple studies between in thirty and fifty percent of children by the age of twelve will have had repeated headaches so that's really high-percentage now less than ten percent of those will be migraine headaches is but the incidents of migraine headaches increases gradually with age really starts to become much more of a problem during adolescence especially in girls yeah they do you think that's related to puberty hormones? I think probably so we definitely see there is association of increased migraine triggering drew around the time of your menstrual cycle. I asked that as a migraine sufferer and I know I didn't get migraines until around puberty and but I certainly you see kids with migraines before that will you explain to us Doctor Stevenson the difference between a migraine headache and non migraine headache short so so the the headache in general can be distinguished <hes> can be divided into either. A primary headache disorder with a headache is the problem or a headache is a sign of an underlying problem now thankfully the latter is very rare. Headaches are rarely do to something sinister like a brain tumor or an aneurysm and they're most likely to be a primary headache. The two two main types of primary headache or tension type headaches which is the general stress headache that people get so that is a mild to moderate headache that is not worsened by by activity and doesn't have any of the other migrants interests that will talk about a migraine headache is distinguished largely by how severe it is. It is a moderate to severe severe intensity headache that often has a throbbing quality it can be anywhere in the head and often in children as in the forehead it can last from two to seventy two hours and is almost always is associated with at least a few of light sensitivity loud noise sensitivity nausea vomiting and it gets worse with exertion <hes> <hes> so oh really what you're talking about. 'cause appearance are often <hes>. How do I know the difference between a migrant irregular headache throbbing? Two kids always have throbbing robbing or that sense I ask. Do you feel like there's a hammer in your head. Do you see kids with Migraines who don't have throbbing yes and so can kids can use all different sorts lots of words to describe their headache and I would say squeezing headaches or <hes> pressure headaches can also be a sign of migraine. <hes> it almost is is the severity and how much the headache limits your activities then will define a migraine and childhood so a headache ends lands a child up on the couch unable to watch T._v.. A A sick headache in air quotes that I think of that as much more of a migraine than attention type headache where most kids can muddle through their activities..
"migraine" Discussed on Parenting Great Kids with Dr. Meg Meeker
"I want you to listen in on a conversation I had with Keith de Marino and Dr Donna Stevenson. I know you're really going to enjoy it. Well Dr Stevenson and Keith. Thank you so much for joining me today on our podcast to talk about migraines and kids. Thanks it's great to be here Keith. Let me ask you. You raised a lot of money for migraine awareness twenty five thousand dollars I believe and you did so by hi running the rim to rim in the Grand Canyon. Can you tell me how that all began and why you decided to raise that much money we had a challenging challenging situation with my daughter Alexa and she was getting migraine headaches and around the same time a friend had asked me if I wanted to do kind of like an extreme extreme challenge and I felt that was way out of my league <hes> but then I watched my daughter who was also kind of felt like she was out of her league with her headaches headaches and I said I thought well maybe I could do this together where we raise money for chop and there are pediatric migraine program as well as <hes> awareness for her condition and I would challenge myself just as much as <hes> as much as she would be challenging herself so that was the basis of the of the event and we were able to to do the rim to rim and raise money for chop at the same time. Can you tell us a little bit about what a lot of people don't know what rim to rim. Did you do rim to Rim rim to rim to rim very important. You have to the difference because says you're GONNA sell somebody's short. If you just just have one <hes> it's actually the rim to rim to rim and it's the South Ram you start on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon opinion you go down the Rim and then you go across the valley across the Colorado River and then you go back up the north and <hes> of the Grand Canyon you sleep overnight and then the next morning you wake up and do it all in reverse again <hes> and the elevations tough it's about a ten thousand feet feet elevation each day with a twenty four mile across each day so total miles was forty eight and that's up and down and up and down. It sounds miserable to me. Tell me what kind of symptoms was your daughter. Having An. How long has she had them in? How old was she? When you realized realized these headaches are not normal headaches right she was twelve and <hes> and she had a hundred days of a migraine headache? It's true and we started to see we thought it was just a sinus infection and then it kind of continued and we thought maybe allergies and then we didn't really know what to do. At that point and then we went to various places to try and diagnose her and we were relatively unsuccessful we did arrive at chop under Dr Stevenson's care and were able to kind of assess what was going on and provide some relief in over time the headache subsided and that's probably about that safe into the fourth month for her and how old's your daughter now she's thirteen now okay and and when did her migraine start well that Migraine was specific to her that inner twelve years that that was specific to her her with being constant but I you know I think she probably had migraines here and there <hes> you know over the years but nothing as severe so as a parent. It's kind of hard to diagnose is just a headache or is it a migraine and and so she probably had them for a good portion of her of her life but off and on briefly uh-huh what kind of symptoms was she having well she'd have headache she'd have sensitivity to bright lights sounds sounds and noises the head would headache would move to the different parts of her head <hes> really tight shoulders and neck everything that nausea everything that comes with with Migraine. She had some point well. The reason I'm asking is because there are a lot of parents listening to our podcast whose kids kids have headaches and it's hard often for parents to know. Is this a headache that I should take seriously <hes>..

"So give us a call eight six six three nine one ten twenty and you were talking about the incidence of of migraines, and it's pretty pretty common. And and so. As the population gets bigger bigger. You know, we're going to have board more people was migraines. What do you see out there future? You you see a lot of help with newer medications. You saw or what do you see? Sure. So there was a really quiet period in migraine treatment where we we developed, and then we're able to access and use these newer medications back in the ninety s called the trip towns. So those are the brand names would be imitrex MAC salt. Those were the first medications that were safe and fairly easy to use that could be just given to treat a migraine when it started. So you get the migraine you take the medication hopefully, the headache goes away. But we're just now beginning to have access to drugs that were specifically designed to prevent migrants from coming on. And as anybody who's ever had a migraine can tell you sometimes even a half hour of migraine symptoms is really horrible. You know, especially. People who have very severe symptoms with their migraines. Like weakness or trouble speaking or trouble seeing. So I think we're going to be focusing more and more on migraine prevention as we move forward. There's also a lot of really neat things coming down the pipeline probably five or six new drugs that we expect to be on the market in the next few years to help people.
