"A crime was basically announced right after Thanksgiving. It was the new variant. Made the stock market plummet. New York in anticipation of a Macron decided to re-engage and lockdowns, mask mandates vaccine mandates on a cron is something that we must be very afraid of is what we're told. Oh Macron, if you just watched Fauci, the NIH and the CDC, it sounds like this is COVID two. It is mutating in a more vicious, deadly and aggressive manner. What's really going on here? How many people have actually died? Of all Macron. Is the virus getting stronger or is the virus getting weaker? Well, according to Neil Ferguson, who was the original lockdown artist, he was the person that originally, the imperial college study, way back at the beginning of the pandemic in March of 2020, he has even come out and he said that Amy Kron is 45% less likely to cause hospitalization than delta, by the way, that's without factoring an Ivermectin hydroxychloroquine azithromycin vitamin D levels vitamin C, obesity age, underlying health conditions, intravenous intervention, aspirin melatonin or Qin. And if you're not able to rattle off all those treatments, I encourage you to listen to our podcasts and equip yourself. Your government wants you to be scared and unprepared. Your government wants you to be fearful and confused. There are legitimate interventions and treatments that could potentially help you. Get to know them. Do not leave yourself or your loved ones helpless, trusting the federal government or the bullet bureau going into Christmas. 45% less likely to cause hospitalization than delta, according to a major British study by Neal Ferguson. Among the previously infected, the risk of hospitalization from a drop by as much as 69% for both the vaccinated on the unvaccinated. So what does that tell us? That means that if you've had COVID before, even if you get COVID again, it's likely not to be as intense.

"Who's exempt from biden's vaccine mandate members of congress and their staff are exempt from biden's vaccine mandate newsweek dot com biden issued two executive orders however biden's order on federal workers applies to the employees of the executive branch the house of representatives and the senate belong to separate legislative branch and the courts judicial branch of the federal government. The plan says quote building on the president's announcement in july to strengthen safety requirements for unvaccinated federal workers. The president has signed an executive order to take those actions. A step further inquire all federal executive branch workers to be vaccinated. Now when you look into some of the commentary regarding this vaccine mandate it's stunning to see how the propagandists in the media. They're not just at war with the unvaccinated which by the way every person starts out unvaccinated like a normal breathing healthy functioning individual. It's the new social caste system you star on yourself. You are the unvaccinated get over here. You're not allowed to our restaurants. You're the unwashed which many of most of whom by the way are black people so here you see again the racism of white liberals in the ruling class that want nothing to do with black people hispanic people but this one clip from sheryl gay stolberg where she says. Look getting vaccine. It's not a personal choice. It's something that we do for the community. Your personal choice ends. Were my right tanaka killed by infectious. Disease begins okay.

The new york times health reporter says that there's no personal choice. I'm gonna tell you what to do because of me. Do you notice that the argument here has now flipped. Originally the moral argument that was being made was go get vaccinated for the people around you to save your grandmother to save your grandfather to go save other people or at the very least get vaccinated because you'll be protected however now the argument is changing.

Study Reveals the Secret to Longevity in Japanese Centenarians

"To ancient things. A new study is pop. The is a japanese study and his japanese study was looking at a group of japanese centenarians. Who seem to have these seemingly magical powers. They have an average age of one hundred seven amongst the healthiest longest living humans on earth protected from chronic diseases that that inevitably haunt a lot of the rest of us as we age like obesity and diabetes hypertension and cancer. But what they found these people that really stood out was the trillions of microbes that lived in their gut It wasn't the amount of the microbes but it was. It was the composition of those gut bugs. The composition of those gut bugs basically. They had a bacterial signature. Those similar to the strains of bacteria in in each and every single one of the centenarians but a lot of them had a very similar microbiome in one strain in particular stood out and it was type of bile acid. Okay or is it a bacteria that synthesizes bile acid now bile acids what you might know. Is this kind of boring bodily fluid that's commonly known for digesting fats. But it's now being called as a class of entering hormones hormones that go beyond their classic role in fat digestion and absorption. So what they found. Is that these bile. Acids helped to protect sensitive gets infection and other environmental stressors. So it's really interesting because we know that that the gut bile acid content to decrease a little bit as one ages in the secondary by lasts a really powerful so they've done studies in mice before they looked at the these these microbiomes humans and they found that the gut bile acids to regulate immune cells and prevent some dangerous microbes from taking over the gut. And what a what they looked at in the seniors a particular group of gut bugs called or owed oral back to rasaie adora backdoor and that turned out this little bile acid called eyeso- aloe lithocholic acid or eyeso- aloe

"On the rise among the nation's youth. A new study shows that Type one and type two diabetes have surged in those under 20. NPR's Ping Hong reports Over the past two decades, more and more young people have been diagnosed with diabetes. It's a chronic condition where the amount of sugar in the bloodstream is too high and can lead to serious health problems like heart and kidney disease. In the Under 20 age group, Type one diabetes has increased by 45% since 2000 and one Take two diabetes, which is linked to obesity has nearly doubled in that time, with the greatest increases seen in black and Hispanic youth. The reasons for the rise and diabetes are not totally clear, but could be related to rising rates of childhood obesity and exposure to environmental chemicals.

Midlife Weight Gain: Don't Blame Your Metabolism

"Most of us reach our final adult height at around age. Eighteen or twenty. Unfortunately that doesn't mean that we stop growing on. Average americans continue to gain a pound or two a year every year from the time they reach adulthood until age sixty or so when this trend starts to reverse of course by then a lot of damage has been done although gaining a single pound or two over. The course of a year isn't going to make a big difference in your health gaining thirty or forty pounds over the course of your adult lifespan can have a significant negative impact. On your risk of diabetes heart disease cancer and other conditions related to obesity such as knee pain and sleep apnea so what drives this weight gain in middle age. There's long been an assumption that this seemingly universal trend is due at least in part to a slowing of the metabolism in midlife. We've all been told that our bodies engines simply reva little faster when we're younger and that there's not that much that can be done. If we want to avoid gaining weight through midlife we're going to have to spend more time exercising or adjust our food intake to compensate for this inevitable slowing of the metabolism. Now if you refuse to go gently into this good night you can find all kinds of special diets workouts and supplements promising to goose up your middle aged metabolism to the extent that any of these actually succeed in boosting your resting metabolic rate. The effect is likely to be quite small as i've said before trying to lose weight by boosting. Your metabolism is like trying to row a boat with a butter knife. You're going to be rowing for an awfully long time. Without moving very far but a new study is during all of these assumptions about midlife metabolism into the blender researchers used a sophisticated technique called the doubly labeled water method to measure energy expenditure in a diverse population of over six thousand people and these subjects ranged in age from newborn to ninety five years old and they also came from a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds and cultures and the results were almost exactly the opposite of what our observations might have led us to believe not surprisingly are metabolic rate is highest when we're babies it peaks at about twelve months of age and then declined steadily until we reach early adulthood but then our metabolic rate is remarkably stable from age twenty to age sixty. There is virtually no slowing in

Let's start with type two diabetes. How big a medical problem does it represent today. Type two diabetes. A massive problem for the healthcare system and the scale of that problem looms large because it's growing very very rapidly along with the obesity epidemic. There are about thirty million people with type two diabetes in the united states this year. Twenty twenty one there are going to be approximately fifty million people. The disease in the next fifteen years in the us alone. How well controlled this condition with existing therapies. There are nearly sixty drugs that have been approved to lower blood. Sugar for people with type two diabetes across a range of different classes but more than half of the people with the condition still are not getting good control of their disease and that's measured by a blood sugar measurement called hemoglobin onc- so more than fifty percent of people with type two diabetes have hemoglobin.

How You Maximize the Quality of Your Life with Behavioral Scientist Jon Levy

"I'm a person who really throws myself into. Whatever i think might be able to improve the quality of life and so i would do courses and read books and so on and one of the things that i jumped into was a seminar and a seminar leader. Said something that really had me me examined the entire way. My life is set up. He said that the fundamental element that defined the quality of our lives are the people we surround ourselves with and the conversations of behalf of them and he said that means that. If you want to impact your life what you need to do is either change the conversations that you're having with people or change the people you're having them with and that was fundamentally different than what everybody else was saying. I was setting my alarm for like crazy early in the morning and then headaches news eight thousand times and skipping the gym and feeling bad about it and he's now saying maybe you should just hang out with a bunch of people who fitness as part of their life and instead of going to the movies and eating tub of popcorn you'll meet them for a run and then it becomes natural for your life while i'm a science geek. I'm a behavioral scientist now. And so i looked at the research and there was this crazy study. By these two guys chris and fowler and they were actually looking at the obesity epidemic and they were curious does it spread from person to person. I got cold or is it. A percentage of the population like alzheimer's. Right you don't get alzheimer's shook hands with somebody who has alzheimer's and what they found was startling. If you have a friend who's obese your chances increase by forty five percent your friends who don't even know them have a twenty percent increase. Chance and their friends have a five percent increase chant and this kind of effect is true for happiness marriage and divorce trait smoking habits voting habits bitterly. Everything spreads from person to person and so i figured my biggest responsibility for my life would be to not only connect with extraordinary people balloons. It could have really in tact a really meaningful impact on my life but tabs them connect with each other so it spreads further and that was kind of the piffling. The problem is i. frankly didn't come from like when those super connected rich families. My parents are immigrants. And so i had to then figure out how to connect with the people i admired

The Dangers of Sugar and Children

"We all know that sugar isn't good for us but really let's take a deep dive into why we really need to limit it in our kids diets. Oh absolutely well. I think you know. Sometimes we forget that during times of rapid growth like in childhood and adolescence that you know kids bodies are really sensitive to the influence of dieting activity. Because they're growing so fast they're seltzer turning over rapidly and that makes them especially vulnerable to the effects of food of physical activity and weight and even environmental damage that can occur and so we really need to put an emphasis during this time of rapid cell growth to make sure that the genes that are being activated or turning on towards health not towards a genetic susceptibility and sugar can actually displace some of these high value. Nutrition foods that play in essential role not just in growth but an immunity but also cognition and genetic expression okay. That's something that we don't typically hear about. And so what about the things we do hear about a lot in terms of childhood obesity. Type two diabetes like these things. We should be concerned about. Oh absolutely i mean first off anytime you look at childhood obesity wolf whether you know kids are really actually normal weight or an overweight. Too much sugar again. Just places. high value nutrition and micronutrients that can increase the inflammatory process that leads to chronic disease over time. Even kids who were teenagers who are overweight and adolescents have a significantly higher risk of colon cancer later in life. I mean we're even seeing precursors in heart disease in children. I mean if you look at like obesity in preschoolers. I think it's risen from around five percent in the early seventies like nineteen seventy two up to close to fourteen percent

"Dive into this very interesting topic. I just wanted to quest you to. Please leave me review on apple podcasts. Also i want to see you in the decoding. Obesity facebook community. It's a free community joining and interact with people who are on a similar journey as yours. A lot of us still hold us misconception that obesity is all about willpower and self control. I know i have mentioned this. In the past as well and i just want to reiterate that obesity has been recognized as a chronic disease. A two thousand twelve online poll of eleven hundred forty three adults conducted by reuters and the market research from its source actually found that sixty one percent of the. Us adults believed that personal choices about eating and exercise what a sponsor for the obesity epidemic but interestingly the biologic cause of obesity was proposed as early as nineteen or seven as with other chronic diseases. That is a genetic competent obesity as well but before you started blaming it all on the jeans i do want to point out that this is certainly not the complete picture. Let's talk about the genetics. There have been various studies done on this to explore the genetic base of obesity. Quite a few landmarks were actually done before. We have the technology for genetic analysis. How were these studies done then. You might wonder well. These were done in twins ever wondered why identical twins look similar that's because genetically very similar fraternal twins on the other hand are not genetically similar. And that's why they also look different. So in nineteen seventy six. There was a scandinavian study conducted by 'em borgeson him to answer this question. How much of a role do genes play in obesity in children. The study design was simple and elegant. He enrolled forty identical twins and sixty one fraternal twins in his study. The twins that were selected for the study had at least one of the twins at one hundred fifteen percent of their ideal body weight. What makes this study. Really amusing is the fact that these two impairs had the same environment right from the womb. To the time they were studied what he found was that the head of the ability of obesity was anywhere between forty to sixty percent in one thousand nine hundred. Eighty six albertson card at the university of pennsylvania conducted another study proving this point further. He and his colleagues looked at danish adoption. Registry of five forty dollars the adoption records included the heights and the weights of the adoptees biologic and adoptive parents and when they analyze data and the looked at the bmi for both sets of the parents what they found was that despite having shared an environment within adoptive parents the adoptees bmi approximity those of their biologic parents rather than their adoptive parents. This study of course pointed to was the impact of jeans on obesity but did not provide any information on the extent of this impact so the same scientists performed another study. They looked at identical twins that were reared in different elements to distinguish between the importance of shared jeans and shared environment. This study was a little more complex. But what the scientists basically concluded was that the head of the ability of obesity was about seventy percent. As of this morning enough a group of scientists wanted to see if genetically similar individuals would respond similarly to overfeeding so the enrolled twelve pairs of identical twins and offered them about a thousand calories a day six days a week for a total of eighty. Four days in one hundred. Apd in this study. Even though the individual change in the body composition and weight gain varied considerably. these changes were significantly. Similar within each of the twin pairs now headed abilities understandable but is it one gene autumn multitude of genes. That caused this. But the answer to this question is yes you see. There are certain forms of obesity which are very very rare. That i'm wanna. Jenny went in his a single gene mutation that leads to obesity defects in at least fifteen genes that caused this kind of obesity have been identified but these again a very very rare the susceptibility to calm obesity. That we see is paula. Jenny that is because of an interplay of various different genes not only that these genes vetting the extent of expression making an even more complex genes are the basis for the signals of energy balance in the body. I under sponsors. That guide food intake. Small changes in these genes can affect their levels of activity. V often hear about nature versus nature in a lot of diseases and this is exactly the situation with obesity has while genetics does play a heavy role enough physical makeup. It is the environment that leads to the full expression of these genes and approve this. Actually people have done studies. There was a study done in norway. Called the hunt study which concluded that genetically predisposed people are at greater risk for higher. Bmi and that genetic predisposition interacts with the ub genetic environment that they're living in resulting in a higher bmi more importantly however the bmi has increased over the past few decades for both genetically predisposed and the non predispose people so this basically implies that the environment actually trump's this situation and it means a main contributes towards obesity and there was another study called the logic study which looked at the role of genetics in obesity treatment success to lifestyle changes in children with obesity. And this study concluded that teens actually play a very minor role in reproduction by lifestyle changes. And that you know. The environmental social and behavioral factors are much more important to consider in obesity treatment strategies. In the end. I would say that it is definitely an interaction between the genes and the environment but as these studies have proven. It's you know the environment that really plays a very very big role in the development of obesity and ill and in the weight loss strategies that we apply however you know the relative impacts of these genes the development and the environment are not constant for an individual and it's these varying levels of interaction that causes increased complexity in the development and management of obesity.

"Interestingly dope. These levels remain low with high protein diet. I also came across to other studies which looked at the changes of pilot function during ramadan while these studies didn't notice increase in the toddler stimulating hormone levels but the authors concluded that it may not be necessary to change the doors of tyrod medications based on these small changes that the soul. But of course you know this needs to be individualized. There was another study from two thousand sixteen that looked at the effects of eight weeks of time restricted. Feeding that is sixteen hours of fasting and eight ours of eating window on basal metabolism maximum strength body composition inflammation and cardiovascular risk factors in resistance trained men the also had similar results while the t three levels decreased with time restricted feeding as we see with other forms of fasting as well. There was no significant change in the tyler stimulating hormone levels so in the end. I would say that you know while there is definitely. Some change are cutting in the body with fasting and the type of diet. You're taking with respect to the tyrod hormone levels. But i'm not sure how significant this is clinically as with everything in medicine. It isn't one-size-fits-all so definitely if you have noticed any changes in your tolerant hormone levels with fasting or you're experiencing some symptoms.

"Please help me reach more people. I truly want to be able to help. As many as i can through this podcast all right. Let's talk about tyrod as it relates to be city sometime ago. One of the listeners actually reached out to me and asked me if intimate and fasting had any impact on the thyroid function. Now i had never heard or read about the impact of fasting on tyrod function so i decided to dive into it. I thought why not do an episode on pirate function and the titled hormone levels as the relate to busy in addition to the impact of intermittent fasting on the functioning of headline itself. If any i know this is the thing that a lot of people have on their minds. Let's begin by talking about the function of tyler at home hydrate home and plays an important role in the regulation of thomas genesis or body heat production and energy expenditure. In addition to its role in regulating food intake and glucose and lipid metabolism. People with hypothyroidism would be able to relate to this. They often have intolerance to call weather and mayfield lacking an energy because of this role of the tyler at home on it has been invested heavily. Obesity here's a quick and brief primer on the tyler hormones we take or tyrod stimulating hormone as a first step in patients to assess the functioning of the tyler gland. This is the hormone. That actually stimulates tyler. Atlanta produce tyler at home so a higher than normal level of. Tsa would mean that. The tyler is being stimulated more than it should be. One of the conditions in which this happens is when the tyler gland isn't producing enough thyroid hormone which causes the body to produce more of the st s. h. two stimulated more in order to meet the body's needs for appropriate level of thyroid hormone condition with higher levels of this. Tsa h. with normal levels of thyroid hormones is called supplemental hypothyroidism now. Interestingly this was very frequently reported in patients with obesity seven studies have found that there's a positive correlation between the slows or the toddler stimulating hormone levels and the bmi the hypothesis. That came along with this. Is that possibly. There's a mild tyler. Failure which is involved in the pathogenesis of the obesity itself. It sure seems very plausible since tyler at home one is an important regulator of metabolism. But as always with science there is more to the story. Interestingly there was an article published in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine title dietary induced alterations tyrod hormone metabolism during over nutrition the researchers noted that increased concentrations of dc levels. Which is a type of the tyler at home. One was present in volunteers. What gained we'd overfeeding. Recessions also shown a decrease in the levels of thc with fasting and with patients who have either xia a more recent study from denmark evaluated tyrod levels in relation to bmi in a normal population. They've found that patients who gained more weight or the previous six months had hired ph levels. We now know that the tyrod hormone level changes with weight in both directions. There was a study done. In patients undergoing gastric bypass the researchers found something very very interesting twenty. Five percent of the patients had sub clinical hypothyroidism. But all of these patients reverse this condition and one year after surgery not only that patients who had started with the normal s. level also lord there level significantly after one year of surgery similarly there have been studies that have shown that patients with anorexia. We've gained the weight. Have olsen ordered an increase in the tsa or the toddler stimulating hormone levels while patients with obesity. Who have lost their way. Experience a decrease in dirty essays levels this has led to a paradigm shift in thinking of hypothyroidism as it relates to the city. It is debatable whether a patient with obesity should be diagnosed as having sub clinical hypothyroidism based only on the elevator. Dss levels which is very commonly seen again in patients with obesity. Another important thing to talk about is the risk of tyrod cancer. Obesity as is the case with the link between obesity and other cancers debt is preliminary data linking obesity with modest increase in the risk of thyroid cancer as well we have discussed the risk that obesity poses for various malignancies at length in episode nine. Okay let's switch gears and talk a bit about the impact of passing on tyler at home one. Which was the original question posed to me. A google search will take you to a lot of blog posts on the impact of fasting on the tolerate. Function with some mentioning. You know it may be harmful in patients with hypothyroidism while others debating this well. Let's see what sign says about this. It is true that there is a decrease in the two three hormone levels with fasting. But is this clinically significant. Is this significant for patients who have hypothyroidism or low functioning tyrod. Does this mean that. Fasting has a negative impact on the tyler functioning. There was a study done on people with supplemental hypothyroidism which again is a condition wherein people have high levels of the thyroid stimulating hormone but normal levels of the home hormone itself and they looked at whether there was any difference in the weight loss. Efficacy in them if calorie restricted diet or alternate day fasting so after six months while the weight loss was similar in both groups. The insulin resistance decreased more in people who followed the alternate day fasting and more importantly talking about topic that we're actually talking about tyrod hormone levels if the changed are not the tyler hormone levels actually were not affected by alternate day fasting. Another study looked at the impact of starvation on the home and this is important to understand when we talk about intimate fasting. It is very different from starvation. In this study people faucet for four days though he said just did find a drop in t. three levels but these returned to normal after eating a mixed.

"Yeah and you know. I'll be very honest before. I actually read about obesity medicine or actually learned about obesity as a disease. I used to think that the owners would be on me or on the person who suffering from obesity to actually lose away to basically just buying into the fact that you need to eat less exercise more and the owners was entirely on the person. But you know. I realize that just by changing terminology from calling somebody obese versus calling somebody suffering from obesity makes a big difference right. I mean here. You are kind of taking the blame away from the person and kind of associating a disease kind of a situation with the person absolutely. This is something called people. First language and i think it's a good tool for a lot of physicians to use when they are discussing people with obesity. So we wanna make sure that. We put the person first and not their diagnosis. If you had someone who had cancer you would say she has cancer. You wouldn't say she is cancerous. If you have someone who has obesity you would say. She has obesity. not she is obese. Ultimately you're no longer labeling the individual by their medical condition. Yeah just for people to know because a lot of times people may have the best intentions but may not necessarily use the best words for lack of knowledge. So what are some of the statements that may reflect weight bias. There are a lot of different ways weight. Bias can be reflected you can have overt weight bias. Which could be very blaming. Shameful statements directed at the person. You can make jokes on their behalf and a lot of things that you see on the media and social media are very overt but there can be subtle forms of weight bias as well and this could be not having gowns in in the doctor's office that fit properly or not having a blood pressure cuff. That will actually measure blood pressure on your patient. Sometimes you can see subtle body language if you see someone on an airplane that is being sometimes. It could be something as subtle as an iro on the airplane and wait by really control and a lot of different ways. Yeah and it's very important to understand. And i'm glad that you mentioned about the gowns and you know sometimes even the chairs that we have in our offices and also sometimes even the wing skills that we have because they may not necessarily you know measure the may not go all the way up till the person's weight and that kind of can be an embarrassing situation for the patient or herself right and you're really right when you say that it's also about the body language that people trae because a body language does convey a lot of our communication right. So that's such an important thing to understand. It does not necessarily mean the words but also means the non verbal communication that we have with each other as humans. And that's so important to understand that coming from a perspective of empathy for the person. Because you know really. It's kind of like judging somebody prematurely and not knowing what really they're going through in my opinion the right way to do things yes and when we think back about the doctor's office i know i talked a little bit about the gowns and you mentioned the skills but there are a lot of other ways than the doctor's office that it's important to think about weight bias. So having scale that accommodates our patients and a blood pressure. Cuff that accommodates our patients having appropriate gowns. Where people can feel really comfortable even something as simple as in the waiting room having chairs.

Weight Bias In The Society

"Let's help our listeners understand. What exactly weight bias absolutely weight bias is the negative attitudes beliefs preconceived judgements and discrimination based on someone's body size or weight. It is very common in the united states and shows up in a lot of different settings including healthcare but also in school employment and at home. It's amazing right. Even in healthcare what we have physicians who are trained to help people kind of have this bias and it may be just because of the fact that it's kind of become culturally accepted in society. What do you think about that. Absolutely in the healthcare setting. It is very common to see weight bias. And i think that a lot of this is based on beliefs that are passed on. Among physicians and other healthcare providers many physicians nurses dietitians and other healthcare providers have stereotypical beliefs related to wait relate often saying that people with obesity are lazy or they have no willpower. A lot of times. Physicians are actually direct sources of harmful comments. And they think that by saying some of these things that actually motivates patients to lose weight. I think it's so important to understand. There's right because it's not just about wait a lot of times when we make negative comments we may have good intentions but that may not necessarily be what will work for the other person and it's so important to realize that may actually have an opposite effect on the person absolutely. The studies show that when patients are experiencing weight bias. They feel berated disrespected. They're reluctant to talk to their doctors about wait. They feel blamed dismissed. And it actually can lead to more maladaptive eating

And how are you setting about to fix it. It's a great question. And getting into the business being savvy entrepreneurs i'd i i always encourage people to look deeply at the problem. You now think thinking through the obesity of damage. Most people are like. Oh it's personal choice. People just need to pick a salad instead of a mcdonald's big mac and if you look back over history going back to the eighty seventies and even sixties. We didn't have this problem in the united states. It's relatively new problem for us. And the transition that happened in society Which was a fantastic Transition that all of us are in full support of Was that women. Entered the workforce so there was no longer one major member of the household at home cooking three meals a day. Like leave it to beaver style You now have women working right alongside men fifty sixty plus hours a week like like my wife That created a environment in the economy. Where getting food quickly became the key. Thing that americans focused on and that in the late seventies and especially in the eighties and nineties led to the rise of fast food ultimately time became the big factor for people to eat and as that happened You know we started focusing less and less on You know on the health aspect cooking from home and all of those types of things when it comes to eating and more and more on the convenience of food so that was our fix with trifecta as we said how can we be more convenient than fast food. And you know unless you're in puerto rico. Sorry john You know we we shipped the food fully cooked directly to your door.

"Born in lawrence massachusetts in eighteen forty nine. Horace didn't play an instrument or hustle. Amateurs at chess no. He didn't cobbled together. Shoes in italy. Horace fletcher like the chew. As a young man fletcher traveled around performing odd jobs following his interests he worked as a writer and artist and even managed in new orleans opera house for a time. He loved to read and he indulged in many of life's pleasures mainly food. It was this pleasure. However that inflicted some of the worst pain he'd ever experienced in his life for one. As he got older he struggled with obesity and it side effects such as chronic stomach pains he also found himself being refused coverage from a life insurance policy or rejection. That sounded alarm bells for him. He quickly realized it was time to make a change one day while traveling to chicago on business the middle aged fletcher began chewing his food. He'd always shoot his food before but this time was different. He kept chewing and chewing and chewing until all that was left was a liquidity goo on his tongue. He believed that this was the key to proper digestion and weight management according to this new practice which he dubbed fletcher ism. All food needs to be chewed until it has been turned into liquid. Any solid particles were deemed unnecessary and could be spat out. It sounds absurd today. But at the time fletcher ism caught on. He became known as the great mass decatur and argued that his practice could increase a person's strength despite reducing the amount of food they actually eight. He also had strict rules about win. To consume sustenance followers. Were instructed to avoid eating when they were sad or angry and to wait until they reached the point. That fletcher called good and hungry. No midnight snacks for him. He started touring the united states giving lectures on his methods methods which were scoffed at by doctors and scientists as nothing more than self-important hokum. That didn't matter. Though fletcher ism had reached far more important spokespeople than doctors celebrities and titans of industry had begun shoeing with wild abandon among them.

The Infinite Alchemy of Storytelling

"I grew up in kuwait in the early nineties where i was raised by screens. The main windows to reality for me or television and the internet not because of their accuracy because there were storytelling machines. These machines told stories that contradicted another but all somehow seem true. There bridge in new quick to be one of the leading voices at media specifically for comedy shows theater the rest of the world new kuwait to be a small country that was located between saudi arabia iraq and iran during the gulf war. Both stories are true. These creams i dragged my sense of reality from pulled me different than sometimes contradicting stories about who i am and where i come from. And that was the only way. I understood anything around me by placing it into different sets of stories when social media came around. It changed the way screens worked for me. It was only a window for observations anymore but interactive one. When i could use to identify everything around me in even more varied in multiple ways to know myself better actually participate in the storytelling process. It started with drawings. Mostly cross hatched on photographs. That i took with my iphone. With time i started to animate them onto videos that told stories from different perspectives in a mockumentary series titled bert lock. It consists of scripted interviews by imagined minority voices discussing issue or one of common interests. The title of the series is meant to ponder the idea. What if birds were watching back. What would they think of our obsession with speed and oil with. They think we were done for standing under the rain. The second episode for example is an interview with the little girl that tries to explain her definition of health where she says she wants to be like her father. Be strong smoke until children. Not to an awful like her grandmother. Cook good food. Beloved by everyone to have diabetes. She also introduces us to the stomach. Animal it's the head of an animal that's connected to our stomachs and its objective is to continue eating. Even after a full you see.

"Have their pain get better. Yes definitely i think. The challenge that patients with obesity have is that they see their doctor and a lot of times. They're told well lose weight. And your pain is going to go away. And i think sometimes that leaves them frustrated. It doesn't give them a lot of really. You know i guess actual plans and tips that they need to actually get there. So i try to really break it down and make small goals make table goals. And i've seen people lose weight. Just changed their diet and that in itself have profound impact on reducing their pain. So absolutely i've seen the weight loss and just lifestyle changes alone have really really really strong. Impacts right bonding. The patients who are suffering from severe to be city as we say who may find it difficult to start exercising initially. Do you see the other people who's gonna start getting physically active. You see that playing a role in their pain or pain getting better. Yes definitely so. I think that for this goes for all of us. That are sedentary lifestyles right. Now we're not helping our chronic pain issues because the less we are using our muscles the more imbalances we have and the more prone. We are to put extra stress on our joints and if patients are able to get active. I recommend a lot of either physical therapy or aqua therapy makes. It's really nice kind of pain. Free way you can get moving without putting extra pressure on your joints that by doing that. If you strengthen all those muscles that are supporting your back your knees. Your hips patients can get a lot better in a lot stronger pretty quickly. Yeah i think that's very important to understand. People who have obesity really have a lot of stress on their. We'd been joined some like. The hip joins the knee joints and working in doing out in water like a swimming pool in a shallow swimming. Could really help because that really takes a lot of the weight off of these joins and actually just moving them there and usually. That's a good place to start especially for people who are suffering from severe obesity so that they can at least start getting some physical activity going to strengthen those muscles. Do you walk with a physical therapist treats them specific physical activities or is it just whatever they can do. Yes so. I work with a number of physical therapists very closely and we also have a aqua therapy facility that i work with close by actually has warm water therapy which is even better especially for those people with severe joint issues to get in a warm water and be able to do their therapy that way. I mean they just found that it's really enjoyable and they're also able to get a lot better stockton me about dietary changes that help schumer so the main thing to remember is that you know the standard american diet that we're eating right now with very very pro inflammatory. The thing about diet is it's a very personal choice either many diets that have research behind it. And then you'll find another article that kind of refute set. So what i usually tell. My patients is general principles. Try to eliminate or cut down sugar. Try to minimize processed packaged foods. Try to eat anti inflammatory type of diet. Nita's many fruit and vegetables as you can as much food as you can in its natural state and that alone is usually enough to really impact notches inflammation but also their weight over time. I see so. How quickly do people start seeing these results with increasing the fruit and dig the vegetable intake. How quickly have you seen. Your patients see results in terms of getting their pain better. Yeah so usually when they're making changes like this you know we're not looking for the massive amounts of weight loss very quickly but more like working slowly towards it so i had one patient that all she did was it was too much for her whole upheaval of her diet so we decided the first month we were just gonna cut out soda to cut out soda. Started drinking water in. That's the only change. She made that in itself. I think it was an eight pound weight loss by the time. I saw her six weeks later. And she felt super encouraged and then continued. Most of my patients will lose about five to ten pounds a month and after two or three months they start to feel significantly better. I see and have you had any patients who felt that are independent of the weight loss with the bane of the integrative site of the management. Yeah definitely see how some people do have a hard time with the weight loss. But they're still able to get more active. They're still able to do a lot of mind. Body therapies depression does go along with chronic pain and along with obesity sometime so incorporating. Some of that into their life has helped as well. we're just their pain levels and then sometimes people just need procedures and they need to feel better in the short term and that kinda gets them over the hump where they're feeling better and then they're really motivated to do these other things. These lifestyle changes. I see yeah that's interesting. Because are you still doing the procedures or you just purely. Integrative still do procedures yes and some of them work really well of course for certain joint issues like this. Yeah i mean. They're all most of the procedure evidence based so that's definitely there but i was as bay curious. About how are you patients reacting to the dietary changes and have you had any patients who've been kind of resistant initially to these changes. And how did you talk to them. I think like i said i. It is a very personal choice. I mean sometimes. I met with some resistance. Because it's maybe it's cultural or maybe it's something that they don't want to change or they feel like they can't change. I've also had some patients say they can't afford some of these other options. So we've the process. I would say in part of it is is just introducing the idea coming up with very very small minor goals like i said with the other patient Just cutting out the soda and replacing it with water trying to meet the patient with where they're at i think is really important because you really can't force something like this and new. Sometimes i also asked like a nutritionist to help to and that can be really helpful so other than the nutrition ovaries or anything else involved in all of this from your integrative and functional medicine standpoint. Is that anything else that you employ to help patients with pain. Yes there's definitely a lot so the different aspects. Are you know i i start out. With addressing physical things like we talked about the physical therapy but a big component of chronic. Pain is mind body therapies so stress reduction. Mindfulness meditation these type of incorporating physical activities like yoga tight t that have a mind body aspect to them really does a huge plays a big role in chronic pain in terms of kind of resetting those chemicals stress hormones and that really does help a lot of pain yet. I think it's also about developing that tolerance to that certain level. That happens once you become more physically active and you know the body gets used to some of the pain as you're getting better and i believe that meditation some of these mindfulness activities. Also help with that. I could be wrong here. What are your thoughts on that. No you're definitely right. They've done thousands of studies. I would say on on different types of the kind of the mind body. Impact of pain and mindfulness. There's been a lot of studies to show the mindfulness daily meditation cognitive behavioral therapy for one. Biofeedback these are different. Approaches that a pain psychologists retrain your thought process retrain those negative emotions into positive emotions. Kind of retrain. Your body's physiologic. Perception of pain for exactly and that itself has profound impact on pain. Yeah i mean that's very interesting because that's a very different way of looking at how you're going to treat pain one. Is you give medication to help. We either the inflammatory mockus. For example we use end sets and basically decrease the inflammation. That's one type of pain. You have the. Opiates that really work on the opioid receptors. And just mazda pandals are the pain receptors right but then know looking at the other thing is building up that resilience and that resistance to pain. Psychologically how much pain you feel..

"Aches and pains which increase as we age people suffering from obesity are more prone to getting these body paints being medications have their own well established side effects. Wouldn't it be amazing if we could help. Alleviate these with minimal use of medications. I am pleased to welcome dr. She told the carrier to discuss how we can do this. She's a board certified anesthesiologist and a pain physician. Who dealt with her own pain issues a few years back. She decided to get education in integrative and functional medicine and use these methods to heal without medications and injections she's also a bestselling author of the new book break the chronic pain cycle a ninety day program to diagnose and eliminate your pain. Welcome sheetal thank you. Thanks for having me yet. It's great to have you so you know. She took people with obesity. Often suffer from gender body aches and joint pains. What are the common aches and pains that you see in people who are suffering with obesity in your practice. Sure so there's actually two different. I would types of pain that i see so. The first is mechanical pain. And that's what you kind of expect to see. In obese patients due to the extra weight. Some additional stresses on their joints so in those patients. We see a lot of hip pain. Knee pain back pain. And that's a result of just the extra stress causing kind of an accelerated arthritis and bone breakdown of their cartilage and early onset arthritis. But then we're also seeing a lot of other syndromes that happen. In a higher likelihood in an obese patient versus a non obese patient and those are things like headache fibromyalgia of domino pain and nerve pain actually have nothing to do with the mechanical causes right and all these beans really depend on the movement or lack there of or is there something else that also precipitates. These paints sure so joint pain. A lot of times is dependent on movement especially the hip and the knee joint pain however as their kind of arthritis of the joint really progressiveness to becoming end stage or bone on bone arthritis in those people. I actually see them having pain even at rest. The other types of pain. I talked about like the fibromyalgia. The nerve pain. Those can happen at any time because those are actually more related to biochemical ties to obesity rather than just the mechanical resents. Let's talk about the biochemical pot of it because that's very interesting very commonly. We see that the pains that are there are very commonly we think about the pins that are there with. Obesity are primarily because of the stress on the joints or the weight bearing joints that we would see. But let's talk about the biochemical factors at play over here. What really causes all of these other pains sore. So they found that in studies done on both humans and animals that obese patients have higher inflammatory markers in their blood versus people that are not obese so one example of this is something called. Crp and this is c reactive protein. It's an inflammatory marker so it's elevated in patients that are obese and that leads to a lot of extra joint pain and different types of pain syndromes just from the inflammation itself. I see so. Tell us about your journey. How did you get involved with pain medicine. And how did you finally get involved. A of medicine. Sorry so i decided at some point during medical school that i wanted to go into pain management. My father was a pain management. Doctor so i was introduced to it early on and spent time in his clinic and i was like this is what i wanted to do. Because it's truly helping people healing people. And i just saw him make such an impact on people's lives so i decided to go into it but i have never actually experienced pain until i finished my training and then i experienced chronic pain myself about two months after i finally finish my board exams. And that's how. I kind of went down this path of learning more about pain through integrative medicine because i had my conventional side. But that wasn't enough for me to figure out how to help myself. He'll see and then. What did he figure out from the side. So when i initially had my pain it started out as foot pain and then progress to hit pain and back pain. I started out going through the conventional medicine side of things. You know i had xrays. Mri's i saw the regular doctors. I did physical therapy. But i wasn't getting better and after about a year or so of of doing that. I was very frustrated. I don't like to take medications. I didn't want any of the injections offered. And so. I actually did a one year. Integrative scholars program. And i started to learn about all of that stuff you know i was trying acupuncture. I was doing all these different therapies and slowly. But surely i started to get better. I see in the take for you to see these effects of very long time. I think i have pain about three. And a half years to be honest it took a long time for me to figure out every single lifestyle change and every single aspect of my life that i needed to address before i was able to like completely get rid of the pain. So obviously you're trained in pain medicine. And i'm sure you were treating patients would be that the conventional medicine that you learn. What are you seeing patients that were not really happy with the conventional medicine and did dot impact at all in getting this integrated medicine training. Absolutely so the thing. That i you know when i first started residency i kind of thought. Conventional medicine was the only way and everyone was going to get better. And then when i actually went and did my pain fellowship and i started to see people. I realize we were just placing bandaids. Bandaids would last for maybe a week maybe a month maybe a year and it would fall off and people were getting worse instead of better and it was really frustrating to watch. That happen and know that. I wasn't really addressing their root cause. I wasn't helping them heal and we were just masking issues and patients were frustrated for me. It was really important that i went kind of beyond what i was taught in my conventional training so that i could really help people and you know. Get rid of their pain and not just mask it. Yeah it's funny though because this country we have this epidemic of opioid use and that's primarily used for pin management and. It's important to understand that there are so many different ideologies and so many different causes of pain and distracting. The pain itself may not be enough. You need to find out the underlying cause of the pain as they had mentioned that an obesity. There's a lot of inflammation it is a pro inflammatory state which we know very well And you know treating that would probably help with the or do you see any patients where they're suffering from obesity and common. You advise them to lose weight per se. Have you seen patients who've lost we'd get.

"She took people with obesity. Often suffer from gender body aches and joint pains. What are the common aches and pains that you see in people who are suffering with obesity in your practice. Sure so there's actually two different. I would types of pain that i see so. The first is mechanical pain. And that's what you kind of expect to see. In obese patients due to the extra weight. Some additional stresses on their joints so in those patients. We see a lot of hip pain. Knee pain back pain. And that's a result of just the extra stress causing kind of an accelerated arthritis and bone breakdown of their cartilage and early onset arthritis. But then we're also seeing a lot of other syndromes that happen. In a higher likelihood in an obese patient versus a non obese patient and those are things like headache fibromyalgia of domino pain and nerve pain actually have nothing to do with the mechanical causes right and all these beans really depend on the movement or lack there of or is there something else that also precipitates. These paints sure so joint pain. A lot of times is dependent on movement especially the hip and the knee joint pain however as their kind of arthritis of the joint really progressiveness to becoming end stage or bone on bone arthritis in those people. I actually see them having pain even at rest. The other types of pain. I talked about like the fibromyalgia. The nerve pain. Those can happen at any time because those are actually more related to biochemical ties to obesity rather than just the mechanical resents. Let's talk about the biochemical pot of it because that's very interesting very commonly. We see that the pains that are there are very commonly we think about the pins that are there with. Obesity are primarily because of the stress on the joints or the weight bearing joints that we would see. But let's talk about the biochemical factors at play over here. What really causes all of these other pains sore. So they found that in studies done on both humans and animals that obese patients have higher inflammatory markers in their blood versus people that are not obese so one example of this is something called. Crp and this is c reactive protein. It's an inflammatory marker so it's elevated in patients that are obese and that leads to a lot of extra joint pain and different types of pain syndromes just from the inflammation

It's all about how you need to change your mindset because australia kerslake. We believe we possibly have fun without alcohol. And that's why.

"Today's episode is going to be in two parts. I will be talking about the link between alcohol consumption and obesity in the first part. And then i will be coming to amazing guests who have graciously agreed to shed their story and how they overcame their alcohol addiction. Please do subscribe to stay up to date with the latest episodes and friends. Don't forget to drop interview on apple. Podcasts it will really help. Spread the message now. Researchers at the washington university school of medicine in st. louis published one of the most important studies done regarding the link between obesity and alcoholism in two thousand ten now looked at the data from to large. Alcoholism is the first one was conducted between nineteen ninety one to ninety two and then the second one was conducted between two thousand one and two thousand to what they found was that there was a significant association between familiar alcoholism and obesity among men and women serve in two thousand and one to two thousand and two and this association was actually substantially greater thousand one to two thousand two when compared to the nineteen ninety one hundred ninety two among women and this was also statistically significant after adjusting for all the variables that could have contributed to this effect. Now this is very interesting. Did did find an association between familial alcohol problems and even in men in the two thousand one two thousand and two survey but the association was much smaller and when they tried to just for the other variables. It wasn't statistically significant. This suspected that does probably because of the changing our environment that they found this association between alcoholism and obesity. We all know that our environment has become more quote unquote obese. Genyk with an increase availability of the hyper palatable foods. Which you've talked about in the past so. The working hypothesis of the researchers was that this leads to a differential increase the prevalence of obesity amongst individuals who are more vulnerable to addiction. While light to moderate alcohol intake is less likely to be a risk factor for obesity heavy drinking and binge eating had more consistently been found to have a link to be city. Well what could be causing this. We just talked about the abusive genetic environment. You know of course. Alcohol is a source of calories itself which can increase the amount of calories consumed when it's consumed with meal secondly it can increase the appetite by modulating the hunger signals causing one to consume more. It also causes a decrease in the inhibitory control which may also lead us to eat more of the unhealthy foods. Which normally we would have been able to restrain from if you're not under the influence of alcohol we're also now discovering that there are certain similarities between alcohol dependence and does that lead to excessive q. Eating both obesity and alcohol addiction have been linked to the brain's reward system. So another possible explanation may be that in trying to avoid the alcoholic behaviors observed in their families. People may alcohol with a different kind of an addiction. We discussed this in detail in episode thirty three wherein. We talked about food addiction and the brain. Is that the hyper palatable foods activate so this was about all the data that we have regarding alcohol and obesity and now i would like to welcome two guests.

This is from non alcoholic fatty liver disease to metabolic associated fatty liver disease. Because it's just really associated with like like metabolic syndrome and obesity and diabetes. And we'll talk more about those really interesting because initially when this was discovered was probably just in patients who were consuming more alcohol.
