A highlight from Mindful Gifting for Caregivers and Dementia Navigators
"Remember the joy of unwrapping a thoughtful gift that was just the right fit for you? Well, being a caregiver doesn't diminish that need, it just changes it. Today, I have the pleasure of welcoming Elizabeth Miller from the Happy Healthy Caregiver podcast, who brings with her an array of gift giving ideas for caregivers and those living with dementia. Our conversation zigzags through a spectrum of unique gifts, focusing on both physical items and shared experiences. Welcome to Fading Memories, a podcast for caregivers of loved ones with dementia. I'm your host, Jennifer Fink. My mom had Alzheimer's for 20 years, and when I went looking for answers, I had to start a podcast to find them. Join me as we navigate the challenges of dementia caregiving together. This podcast is your beacon of support and empowerment. Let's share our experiences, find solace, and discover the strength within us. Get ready to embark on a transformative caregiving journey with Fading Memories. If you're looking for additional advice, be sure to sign up for our weekly email newsletter. It's brief, gives you great advice, you can read it in less than five minutes, and you know where to find the link. It's in the website, on the show notes. We're working on subscriber -only information and specials, so you're not going to want to miss out. When I learned that despite eating as healthy as possible, we can still have undernourished brains, I was frustrated. Learning about neuro reserves, Relev8, and how it's formulated to fix this problem convinced me to give them a try. Now I know many of you are skeptical, as was I. However, I know it's working because of one simple change. My sweet tooth is gone. I didn't expect that, and it's not something other users have commented on, but here's some truth. My brain always wanted something sweet. Now fruit usually did the trick, but not always. One bad night's sleep would fire up my sugar cravings so much they were almost impossible to ignore. You ever have your brain screaming for a donut? Well, for me, those days are gone. I believe in my results so much that I'm passing on my 15 % discount to you. Try it for two or three months and see if you have a miraculous sweet tooth cure, or maybe just better focus and clarity. It's definitely worth a try. Now on with our show. Hello, hello, you guys are gonna love today because we're talking about gifts and gift giving for people with dementia. And it's a perfect day to discuss that because today is my daughter's birthday. So I would wish her a happy birthday, but she's not a listener. So what I will do is thank Elizabeth Miller from the Happy Healthy Caregiver podcast for coming on and sharing her gift guide and her knowledge. So thanks for joining us today, Elizabeth. Thank you for having me, I'm excited to be here. Awesome, I know we haven't done one together. I was on your show a while ago, but you haven't been online. Yes, vice versa. Yes, I love Fading Memories and I love that it's part of the whole care network. Definitely, so. We're all part of the same family. So you've been podcasting for six years as well, right? Yep, I'm in my sixth season. I launched in November's National Family Caregivers Month. So happy National Family Caregivers Month, everybody. And that was a launch. I try to do some kind of special every year, but I think I don't really have a launch this year. Just keep on keeping on. I've been really focusing on the speaking part of my business and really trying to get out there as far as reaching different companies and organizations to scale the caregiving support. Yes, it's definitely something we need. So where should we start? Do you wanna start with gifts for caregivers or gifts for people living with dementia? Let's, I mean, I'm always one to put the caregivers first. So like - Sounds like a plan. Yeah, so I think when it comes to buying gifts for caregivers, anything is probably going to be appreciated, right? We're just so grateful that somebody has been thinking about us and has us top of mind. But there's a lot of different things you can do, I think, for a family caregiver. And of course I also like self -care focused ones because not only are you giving them a gift, but you're giving them a tool of something that can help them mitigate burnout. So anything from like stuff that they would use like every day, we just had this in the fall, we have a sister's weekend and we do this favorite things party. Have you ever heard of that? Where we decided we were gonna each bring three things. We were gonna be $25 or less. This might be a great idea for someone to do as a swap exchange for their book club or their caregiver support group or whatnot. But I brought three of the same things. We kind of presented them, they're not wraps. But I got a lot of good ideas there this year for things like we had the things to clean our glasses, which would be a good thing for, they're called peeps. They're good for caregivers and for care recipients. Anybody who's wearing sunglasses even because they get grody, right? Very practical gift constantly. And then we had things like I'm wearing it now, actually. I love this Maybelline Lifter Gloss. It's affordable, it tastes good. Not that you're eating it, but you're gonna get some in your mouth on something. Smells good, it stays on decent. So I had brought that as part of mine. And then there was some cool body scrubs and lotions from, I think it was called La La Licious. So I think anything that can help us, oh, a boom stick was another one. It was like stuff that, this would be a very handy little makeup tool for a caregiver because you can put some quick color on your face, you can use it on your lips. Like it's one of those try it anywhere type of things. That's something you could like throw in your purse or your bag and when you look in the mirror and go, oh, it kind of looks so painful. Emergency, emergency. Yeah, put it, throw it in your self care tote. So I think little things like that, everybody's got different budgets these days as far as stuff that you can use. We did this, I do a Happy Healthy Caregiver virtual cafe is kind of every other month I do different kind of support where I wanna do some kind of a unique event for caregivers and introduce them to something. We had a Zentangle consultant come and teach us how to Zentangle. And it's basically like you're creating patterns. It's an abstract art, but it's very meditative. And she had given away as part of a prize this Sakura Zentangle artist tool set, it's like $20. But the thing with Zentangle is you use these little paper and you use like a micro tip pen. And so it's the little kit for that. And I like it because it's portable. You could throw it again in a self -care tote bag and pull it out just to kind of like, I need a mindful moment quick. Cause I'm a journaler, I love my journal of course, but I got that here too, the Just For You daily self -care journal, it's a prompted journal. And this is one form of meditation and doing that, but the Zentangle and an art journaling is another type of where it just gives you calm and peace. I can tell you, I felt very differently at the beginning of that session than I did at the end of the session. So something creative there. But I think too, when you're given a gift for anybody, whether it's a caregiver or care recipient, like just thinking about that person and what they naturally like and what they care about or what they maybe have mentioned to you in conversation could be something that would spark something. I was thinking, unless you know for sure they have a green thumb, don't give people a plant. They don't need something else to take care of. Yeah, I think as caregivers, right, we crave less things to take care of. The only exception I have to that would be the, I did get an AeroGarden one year, it's like for herbs. Right now I have basil, my basil is like taken off. And even if I can't use it in what I'm cooking, cause I'm not like this huge culinary chef, I learned this tip from another caregiver, Lisa Negro, where she said, she rubs it in her hands and smells the basil on her hands. I've been using it to freshen up my garbage disposal. Like I literally take some leaves off of it and put it in there to make it smell better. That's a really good idea. And I have a good idea cause I have the same issue. I have two pots with basil in it. I mentioned the other day, we needed to do a pasta dish with pesto. My husband was like, why? And he's like, oh, nevermind, I know why. Cause the plants are like big. It's pesto time. Yeah, it's like, and that's not something we normally eat a lot of anyway, cause you know, a lot of olive oil, it's not the healthiest sauce, but it is tasty. But I have been making basil mayonnaise and you basically just grind up, I think it's like half a cup of mayo and a third a cup of basil. I just do it to taste cause when I did it per the instructions, it needed a little more basil and I had a little more basil, so I threw it in there. And I am telling you, that is, that makes lunch just - Oh yeah, it's just like a little extra special and all you need is, you know, food processor or you know, maybe a blender, I don't have a blender. So I just use the food processor, grind it up and - Sounds yummy. It is really good and it's, you know, I throw just a touch of lemon juice in it just to kind of give it, you know, a little extra, what do they call it? Brightness, which that's a very strange culinary term, but yeah, it's delicious and it's, you know, you just plop in however much mayonnaise you need and then keep adding basil until it tastes the way you want it to taste, super easy. Never thought to use that. I think like little things like that, where you take something that people are doing all the time and you can maybe elevate it a little bit. So think about like, if someone's a tea drinker, you know, how could you make that special? Like, you know, tea, splurging on teas that they might not buy for themselves or the presentation of it and packaging it all together, maybe with some biscotti or something like that. Like it just like treat them, treat them to something spectacular. I also think anything pampering, like a massage gun or a silk pillowcase or a obviously nail appointment for their, you know, find out from their person where they go for those types of things and a gift certificate to that. I'm a big reader. So like reading is really fun for me, but sometimes, you know, there's lights now that you can get. I don't wanna hold a flashlight at night. I don't necessarily like reading a Kindle book all the time. So, but there's lights that you can light up and I can think of caregivers using that cause sometimes we're doing those things in very precocious types of places. What else would be good? I mean, any kind of activity that you can help encourage. I'm into pickleball recently. Have you tried to explore pickleball, Jennifer? No, there is a big pickleball teams in our community. I have very wacky vision. So I don't have depth perception. I have blazey eye and it wasn't corrected until I was four. So I could very, very much understand my mom's visual processing problems because I have similar ones myself. I don't realize, I know I don't have depth perception, but it's been this way my entire life. So, it's not abnormal for me, but I don't like balls getting hurled at me cause I'm ducking and I'm not trying to hit it back. I could probably play with the hubby, but you'd have to hit the ball gently towards me or else it's not gonna be very fun. Yeah, yeah. Well, I love it cause it's an accessible sport. It's definitely geared, it's for all ages, frankly, but something like that could be fun. Like, hey, let's, I think experiences are amazing. Let's take a pickleball lesson together. Let me take you on a hike. I got you this fun little hat and I looked up a hiking trail, something where you can really be someone's self -care cheerleader and have some kind of an experience together, a cooking class, a lesson of some sort where it's kind of a twofer, right? They're learning something and they're getting away from the caregiving world for a moment. And if you're looking for cooking classes, I did one through King Arthur Baking. It was called Pizza Perfected and it was on Zoom cause they're in freaking Vermont. So I'm not getting there anytime soon. Totally want to go, I use tons of their recipes, but yeah, it's like, I don't know how we got into just really, we really like to make our own pizza at home. We haven't done it for a while cause life, but it's not that hard, especially when somebody walks you through it and they sent you the video after, you know, like the next day. So you got to do it live and I think it was like 40 bucks. It wasn't expensive and it was at least two hours. And I have the video, it's saved in my Dropbox files and I can access it if, you know, cause there's some techniques that you don't necessarily know, you know, and I mean, just learning that technique was worth the 40 bucks, but it was a nice experience. So if you can't get out or, you know, I don't, I live in the Sierra foothills, so I don't live near things, even though I'm only an hour north of the state Capitol. It's like, there's some pros and cons to smaller air, quieter areas, depending on the day, sometimes the cons outweigh the pros, but yeah, there's, and I'm sure there's other places that do online cooking. I bet there are. And even, you know, maybe your person, your caregiver is not a person who enjoys cooking at all. And then, you know, I know for me, I used to dread the question as a sandwich generation working caregiver, like what's for dinner? And I'm like, oh, why do these people have to eat all the time? So something like that could be, you know, a subscription to like the green chef or some kind of prepared meals, or even like a Uber Eats or a DoorDash gift card for those, what are we gonna eat emergencies? I think all of that, I mean, just putting yourself in the mind of all the things, if you're a caregiver listening, like what you wish you had and what would have been helpful for you, having someone mow the lawn, like, or I'm gonna do your laundry this week. Like there's a lot of things too that even if you don't have a budget, like just showing up for someone else and doing something, taking something off of their plate would be amazing. Yeah, you could offer to help put up decorations for the holidays or you could offer to help do some deep spring cleaning, which the only reason that's coming to mind today is my golden retriever goes to the dog park regularly and the dog park has its own lake.

A highlight from Paul's Testimony of Jesus
"Acts chapter 21, beginning at verse 37. As Paul was about to be brought into the barracks, he said to the tribune, may I say something to you? And he said, do you know Greek? Are you not the Egyptian then, who recently stirred up a revolt and led the 4 ,000 men of the assassins out into the wilderness? Paul replied, I am a Jew from Tarsus in Cilicia, a citizen of no obscure city. I beg you, permit me to speak to the people. And when he had given him permission, Paul, standing on the steps, motioned with his hand to the people. And when there was a great hush, he addressed them in the Hebrew language, saying, brothers and fathers, hear the defense that I now make before you. And when they heard that he was addressing them in the Hebrew language, they became even more quiet. And he said, I am a Jew, born in Tarsus of Cilicia, but brought up in this city, educated at the feet of Gamaliel, according to the strict manner of the law of your fathers, being zealous for God as all of you are this day. I persecuted this way to the death, binding and delivering to prison, both men and women, as the high priest and the whole council of elders can bear me witness. From them, I received letters to the brothers and I journeyed toward Damascus to take those also who were there and bring them in bonds to Jerusalem to be punished. As I was on my way and drew near Damascus, about noon, a great light from heaven suddenly shone around me and I fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to me, Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me? And I answered, who are you, Lord? And he said to me, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom you are persecuting. Now those who were with me saw the light, but did not understand the voice of the one who was speaking to me. And I said, what shall I do, Lord? And the Lord said to me, rise and go into Damascus and there you will be told all that is appointed for you to do. And since I could not see because of the brightness of that light, I was led by the hand by those who were with me and came into Damascus. And one Ananias, a devout man, according to the law, well -spoken of by all the Jews who lived there came to me and standing by me, said to me, brother Saul, receive your sight. And at that very hour, I received my sight and saw him. And he said, the God of our fathers appointed you to know his will, to see the righteous one and to hear a voice from his mouth, for you will be a witness for him to everyone of what you have seen and heard. And now why do you wait? Rise and be baptized and wash away your sins, calling on his name. When I had returned to Jerusalem, I was praying in the temple and was praying in the temple, I fell into a trance and saw him saying to me, make haste and get out of Jerusalem quickly because they will not accept your testimony about me. And I said, Lord, they themselves know that in one synagogue after another, I imprisoned and beat those who believed in you. And when the blood of Stephen, your witness, was being shed on my, was being shed, I myself was standing by and approving and watching over the garments of those who killed him. And he said to me, go for I will send you far away to the Gentiles. We can all recognize, I think, the weighty significance of the fruitful labors of those high profile missionaries who were and still are used so mightily of God in the hardest of places in the advance of the gospel, while at the same time, perhaps failing to appreciate the same weight and significance of the witness borne by those persecuted and imprisoned saints who are no less used of God to testify of the reality of the gospel through their patient endurance of suffering in chains for Christ's sake. Well, it is the case actually that in the life and ministry of the apostle Paul, we find both of these dynamics as the remainder of Luke's account is now given over to Paul's time in chains. And in light of that, it is good to recognize the amount of space that the inspired writer gives to Paul's years in the custody of the Roman authorities and to the several defenses that Paul makes as he is dragged from one jurisdiction to another. In doing so, Luke is in no way detracting from the importance and significance of Paul's three missionary journeys that came before. However, at the same time, Luke is highlighting for us, I think, the importance and the power of faithful gospel witness in the midst of patient endurance of suffering for Christ's sake. And oh, what an example we have in the apostle Paul, in the imprisoned Paul, in the way that he has peacefully placed himself under the mighty sovereign hand of his God and consciously is constrained by the love of Christ for him. In order to fulfill this call that is now upon the apostle Paul to suffer in chains and to preach Christ, to bear witness to Jesus, no matter the cost to himself. And before us this morning then is the apostles very first defense, a defense I would submit to you that is not a defense of himself in the end, but rather a defense of the Christian faith, a defense of the way. For reasons that if Paul's chief concern here was simply to make a defense of himself to the Roman Tribune that now held him captive, surely he would not have addressed the crowd here in Aramaic but rather would have continued in Greek that his Roman captor might actually appreciate his defense, understanding what he was saying. However, Paul's chief concern here, even while in chains and even after almost being killed by the very Jews before which he is now speaking, Paul's main concern here is not his freedom but rather the salvation of his kinsmen in the flesh. And so Paul speaks directly to the crowd here, directly to the Jews and in that Paul labors to offer no unnecessary offense to them, addressing them as brothers and fathers, chapter 22 verse one and addressing them as well in their native tongue, not the speech of the Gentile nations. And I would have us analyze Paul's defense of the way under four headings this morning. Number one, Christianity is no direct threat to Rome. Christianity is no direct threat to the state. Number two, Christianity as a direct threat, however, to all other religions. And number three, Christianity as a religion of conversion. And lastly, Christianity as a religion of hope for any. Christianity as no direct threat to the state, Christianity as a direct threat to all other religions, Christianity as a religion of conversion and Christianity as a religion of hope for any. First, Christianity is no direct threat to the state or in the words of our Lord Jesus to Pilate from John 18, my kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting that I might not be delivered over to the Jews, but my kingdom is not from this world. While it might not have been initially on Paul's front burner at this point to make a defense of the Christian movement as not a direct threat to Rome, it is fair to assume, I think, that it is in the scope of Luke's apologetic in writing this account. For it is actually the Roman Tribune that forces the issue here and Luke is careful to record the details. Verse 37, as Paul was about to be brought into the barracks, he said to the Tribune, may I say something to you? And he said, do you know Greek? Are you not the Egyptian then who recently stirred up a revolt and led the 4 ,000 men of the assassins out into the wilderness? The Jewish historian Josephus tells of this Egyptian Jewish rebel that the Tribune is referencing here. This man was basically a false Messiah who only a few years before this had gathered quite a following to himself. And he did so with his claim that he would stand upon the Mount of Olives and bring down the walls of Jerusalem in Jericho fashion and then march on the city and overtake the Roman guard within the city. And he indeed gathered thousands to himself and gathered them to the Mount of Olives but was quickly overrun by the Romans. Hundreds of his followers killed, many imprisoned, he himself fleeing and escaping. Now, Greek was widely spoken in Egypt and so as Paul addresses the Tribune in Greek, the Tribune concludes that Paul must be this same Egyptian rebel. Return now to Jerusalem and the Jews having found him out are for good reason enraged by his returning to them. And so in response, Paul will make it clear to the Tribune that he is no threat to Rome. And the point here is that Christianity as a religious movement is not like those many political religious movements of the day. Christianity is different. As the leader of the way, Jesus Christ is not like those many false messiahs. Rather in Jesus Christ is the true Messiah come to deliver his people from their own sins. Christianity is in no way a threat to Rome, not a direct threat, not then in Paul's day nor should it be in our day. The church is not called up to take arms as the sword belongs not to the church but to the state and does so according to the will of God, the sovereign decree of our God. Our God in whose sovereignty we Christians patiently endure whatever suffering he would ordain. The same Jesus who on his way to the cross stated, if my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting but my kingdom is not from this world is the same Jesus whom we now follow after. Brethren, to our cross, the followers of Jesus do not kill. Rather we are killed. All the day long we are killed. All the day long we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.

So take advantage of that deal today. This podcast is an audio recording of one of my most popular YouTube videos on what you should eat before you fast. Believe it or not, what you eat before you start fasting plays a critical role in how you feel and the results that you're going to get from doing any sort of intermittent fast or perhaps you're trying to do a two or three or four or five day fast. What you consume in your last meal in particular, but also really like the last few meals before you begin that fast will play an important role in your fasting experience. I'm going to go through that in detail in this episode. So you guys are going to love this. If you know anybody that's interested in intermittent fasting, that has chronic inflammation and wants to improve their life and their health, please share this podcast with them and also take a moment and leave us a five star review. I've got two great Apple iTunes five star reviews. I'm going to read to you guys here. Let's see. Mara says, thank you for putting the information out there for people to gain knowledge on how to heal themselves. Thank you. And thank you, Mara. I appreciate you taking the time to put that review on Apple iTunes. And then Mary says, Dr. Chalkers has helped me learn how to take better care of my body through his informative podcasts. And then Team Tammy Fitness says, very informative, really, really great show. I always listen to every episode. So thank you guys for taking a moment and leaving us those reviews. And if you want me to read your five star review and your comments, please go to Apple iTunes and leave a review on the podcast. Thanks so much for doing that. And let's go into the show. One of the most common questions I get is what should I eat before I fast? And this is a really important consideration and it's important whether you are doing an intermittent fast, maybe like a 16 hour overnight fast or an 18 hour overnight fast, or if you're doing a three or four or five day water fast, no matter how you're looking at fasting, you should always really consider the food that you're consuming in your last meal before you start your fast. And the same rules really apply. So what I'm talking about here applies whether you're doing a five day fast, whether you're doing a three day fast, whether you're doing a 16 hour overnight fast, maybe even just maybe you're a beginner and you're just doing like a 12 or 14 hour overnight fast, these rules apply. Or if you're doing, you know, a 30 day fast or something, you know, something crazy that's, you know, going above and beyond these rules apply. So first thing I always look at when I'm looking at meals is protein. Protein really helps stabilize your blood sugar. And it's super important for insulin sensitivity. And that's really key. You don't want the last meal you eat to spike your blood sugar and create blood sugar dysregulation. This is what a lot of people do wrong is they they're like, well, I'm not going to eat for a while, so I'm going to go out with a bang, right? I'm going to go for, you know, my big hurrah and I'm going to have, you know, this I'm going to have a whole pizza, right? Or I'm going to have a big bowl of ice cream when I'm, you know, finished with my meal that sets you up for fasting failure because that is going to throw off your blood sugar. It's going to create big insulin spike. Your blood sugar is going to drop down. You're going to get reactive hypoglycemia. You're going to have a lot more cravings and fasting is going to be a lot harder to be successful at. So please don't do that. Instead, eat a really healthy meal, prioritizing protein, 30 to 50 grams of good quality protein, maybe more if you know, you're very active. You have a lot of muscle mass. You might need more. Okay. Most people find somewhere in that 30 to 50 gram range to be great and they feel really satiated when they do that. Again, it's just going to really depend on your activity level, your muscle mass, you know, your overall weight, right? So somebody that's that's a little bit smaller, not as active. 30 grams can be can be wonderful for them. Somebody that's a little bit larger, more active. Maybe they exercise that day, 40, 50 grams, maybe even more, especially if you know, you're a young athlete, you might need more than 50 grams. So, but that's where we start 30 to 50 plus grams. You're not going to go wrong if you do more than 50 grams. Even if your body doesn't need it, you're not going to go wrong. It's going to help with stabilizing your blood sugar. It's going to help with insulin sensitivity and it's going to help you just feel more satiated during the fast. So don't worry about that. Just make sure you prioritize it. Number two is healthy fat. Now, healthy fat is critical, but you can also overdo fat if your body doesn't digest and break it down effectively. So this is why the caveat here, I say 15 to 30 plus grams. Now we look at protein. Protein has four calories per gram. So the average individual, like a big meal for most people is somewhere around 700, 800 calories, maybe a thousand calories. So 30 to 50 grams, you're looking at 120 to 200 calories from that. So it's not a huge proportion of, you know, if you're eating a very large meal. Healthy fat, 15 to 30 grams, fat has nine calories per gram. So if you're looking at 30 grams of fat, that's 270 calories right there. Now for some individuals, that's no problem. Like for me, I can easily eat 30 grams of fat. In fact, I'll eat, you know, my body's able to tolerate 1500 calories in a meal. My digestive system is good. I have, I'm very active. My muscles are pulling nutrients out of the bloodstream pretty quickly. So I feel good when I eat, you know, a good solid meal like that. I typically need about 3000, 3500, 4000 calories a day just to maintain my weight. So for me, it's no issue, but for a lot of other people eating 200 plus grams of fat in a meal, maybe they don't have a gallbladder. Maybe they have a sluggish liver that can make them feel nauseous. They just don't feel as good. They need smaller meals, maybe 500 calories or something like that. So that's why we want to tighter this up. Um, and so that's why I say 15 to 30 grams, 15 at the minimum grams of healthy fats. 30, 15 to 30, usually in that range, you're going to do good for some individuals. If you have a larger appetite, you can certainly do more than 30 grams, but try to watch the feedback your body gives you. If you feel a little bit nauseous, you have an acid reflux after the meal. It may be because you went too heavy on the fats. Now by healthy fats, what I'm talking about are things like avocados, extra virgin olive oil or olives in general, coconut oil or coconut butter or coconut milk, grass fed butter, um, yogurt, organic yogurt could be grass fed meats, right? Obviously, you know, a good fatty piece of meat is going to have the protein as well as the fat in there. So you want to take in consideration all of those things. And by this right here, when you're counting these grams, when you start doing this and you do this for a few meals, you really get an idea of how much grams of each are in the particular meal that you're eating. So it doesn't, it's not like you need to do this the rest of your life, but in the beginning you want to have an awareness of, okay, how much protein am I getting here? How much fat am I getting here? And then you can kind of tighter to where you feel best. Somebody that does not have a gallbladder, maybe they had the gallbladder removed, or they just, just don't feel good when they're eating fats, they might need to reduce the amount of fat. That's why I said 15, maybe 15, 20 grams or 30 grams, you know, depending on how well you're digesting those fats, but again, trying to get it from those good, healthy sources, maybe a little bit of nuts and seeds, not a huge fan of getting fats from nuts and seeds in general, because they're more pro-inflammatory omega-6s and our body, they can be tough on the digestive system. So I'm a big fan of the fat sources I already talked about. And of course, we want to avoid the really damaging fats, things like canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil, safflower, cottonseed, peanut oil. We want to avoid those. Those are very inflammatory for our body and will not set us up for a good fasting experience. Instead, really try to focus in on your grass-fed butter, your avocado, your extra virgin olive oil, your coconut fats, things like that, that are much better tolerated and less, they're less likely to cause inflammation in the body. I just wanted to take a moment and tell you about my friends over at Puroality Health and their new rapid absorbing glutathione spray. Glutathione is your master antioxidant. It helps you kick out toxins and boost your metabolism fast. In fact, when supplementing with high quality glutathione, you will purge unhealthy toxins. You'll lose weight with less effort. You'll feel more energetic. You'll notice a brighter complexion and you'll feel much healthier overall. But here's the thing, not all glutathione supplements are created equal.

You could thank your stomach acid for that. However, my friends over at Puroality Health have a new rapid absorbing delicious glutathione spray that delivers this powerful antioxidant straight to the areas of your body that need it most.

So go subscribe to Sleep Magic now wherever you listen to podcasts and start listening for free today. Just search Sleep Magic on your favorite podcast app. Third thing here is polyphenols, and one way to think about that is colors. So we know fruits and vegetables come in a wide range of colors and kind of the more colorful ones, the reds, the purples, the oranges, the yellows. They're rich. And as well as the greens, they're rich in things called polyphenols, which help feed our microbiome. And the more well fed our microbiome is, the more postbiotic nutrients, which are very healthy and anti-inflammatory for our body, that those bacteria are now going to produce. And again, that's going to reduce inflammation in the body. That's going to set us up for healthier bowel movements, and it's going to also support us to have less cravings. When we're eating a lot of sugars and processed foods and less polyphenols, we create a microbiome that sets us up for cravings that actually will trigger more cravings, more sugar cravings, more carb cravings, and cause us to have a lot more struggle if we're trying to do a fast. So getting the polyphenols again helps to reshape the microbiome in such a way that we have less cravings, we're able to burn fat more effectively, create ketones and have less inflammation in our system. So that's really key. And fiber goes along with that. So fiber we're going to consume with the polyphenols. You don't need like an extra fiber supplement. I don't recommend that. I recommend just getting the fiber from fruits and vegetables, right? Getting your fiber from good quality fruits and vegetables, things like avocados, olives, they have fiber in them. Green leafy vegetables have fiber. If you're eating fruit, fiber in there. If you're eating cucumbers, if you're eating, you know, all different types of things, that's going to have the fiber that you need. You really don't need to count out how much fiber you have. If you just have some plant based polyphenol colorful plants in your meal, along with the healthy, the healthy proteins and healthy fats, like I talked about, that's good. That's what you want to do. Number five, this is really to help support your digestive system and to support your microbiome, is some sort of fermented food or beverage. This could be something like apple cider vinegar, could be sauerkraut, could be kimchi, could be pickles, could be organic yogurt, unsweetened, of course, right? No added sugar in it. That's what we want to do. You know, definitely want to avoid any sort of added sugar. So I'm not a big fan of like having a full kombucha right before you fast either, even though that's fermented. So technically it would be in this category. There's still a lot of sugar in there, and that sugar is going to throw off your blood sugar and create more cravings the next day or, you know, whatever your fast starts getting beyond, let's say, 10 hours, you're going to start to notice more cravings. So what we want to do is stick with low sugar fermented foods. Again, I mentioned a whole bunch of them. I really like apple cider vinegar. I love sauerkraut. So just taking like a little bit of sauerkraut, putting it on your plate with your meal, the fermented, these fermented foods and beverages have postbiotic nutrients. So already metabolized compounds that are anti-inflammatory for your gut. So they help reduce inflammation in your gut and the less inflammation you have in your gut, the healthier the overall microbiome is going to be and the less cravings you're going to have. They also have enzymes. Some of them have probiotics in them. They have other nutrients like sauerkraut has something called vitamin U, which is really powerful anti-inflammatory. It helps our body detoxify bad estrogens, helps us detoxify, you know, a lot of harmful compounds, parabens and phalates. So having, again, sauerkraut or pickles or apple cider vinegar, it's going to help the sourness of it helps to activate our digestive juices. So our stomach acid, pancreatic enzymes, our digestive enzymes, as well as our bio flow. So we digest the meal more effectively. But then also on top of that, it also has these kind of compounds that help reduce inflammation in our system. So you don't need a whole lot with apple cider vinegar. You can just take like a tablespoon, put it in, let's say, four ounces of water, a little bit of water that you drink before your meal, and that helps prime your digestive system. You can also take, let's say, two tablespoons of fermented vegetables like sauerkraut or kimchi and have that on your plate. You can have, you know, one medium to large pickle with your meal. You might have a half a cup of yogurt to add more protein, to add more healthy fats. Again, this should be an organic unsweetened yogurt that you're consuming. So you don't have any added sugar. You don't want the growth hormones, the antibiotics that are in the conventional yogurt. So good organic yogurt that will add protein, healthy fats, as well as the probiotics, enzymes, and postbiotics to support your microbiome. So really good stuff right there. That's what we're looking at. Again, protein, healthy fats, trying to get a lot of colors in our meal. That's going to provide the fiber, the polyphenols, and then something fermented. If you do that, you set that up right, you're going to have great fasting success. Your blood sugar is going to be stable. Your body's going to be burning fat, creating ketones, which help your brain feel really good. So a lot of people will say, when I'm fasting, I feel really energetic, mentally clear, really creative. That's the ketones, these byproduct of fats that our liver creates that can cross the blood-brain barrier, get up in the brain. They reduce inflammation in the brain. They're a great fuel source for neurons, and they really make you feel great when you're fasting. And you get that when your last meal is very blood sugar stabilizing, just like I talked about. So if you want to get the best results with fasting, make sure that you follow what I talked about in this video. And you can also feel free to share this with other people, with your friends, your family members, so they can understand more about this as well. Hopefully, you got a lot out of this, and we'll see you in a future video training. Be blessed.

A highlight from The What a Weird Week Show: Sneakers, Chainsaws, Green Slime! Friday, November 10th 2023
"It's the What a Weird Week show for Friday, November the 10th, sneakers, whales and iron claws. Hi, everybody, it's weird. This is like crazy news here. Really weird, weird tale. Well, I got a great show for you today. It was so wonderful. Weird stuff. Hi, friends, I'm Scott, and this is the What a Weird Week show. We do a top 10 countdown of weird news that happened this past week. Maybe some of these stories didn't even show up in your newscast, and now you can get caught up in all the weird stuff. If you want links or things, if you want things, show notes dot page, show notes dot page. All right, let's get it going. What a weird week for Friday, November the 10th season something episode can't remember. Number 10 is the Nike lawsuit. Nike is suing New Balance and Skechers for patent infringement. This is about sneakers and technology in our sneakers. I'm not a lawyer, but my paraphrase is Nike is saying you stole our idea and New Balance and Skechers are saying they're sneakers. They go on your feet. Come on. You don't have the worldwide rights to feet. I don't know. That's kind of it. You can read the article. The link is in the show notes. Quote from the article, Nike's Flyknit technology uses high strength fibers to create lightweight uppers with targeted areas of support, stretch and breathability. End quote. I feel like those are good qualities to have in a shoe that could possibly, if you've ever had smelly shoes going on before in your life, breathability, yes, support. Who doesn't want support? Stretch after the end of a long day and a lot of salt, yes, you want stretch. All good qualities. Nike says whatever is happening there with the other, with their competitors, it is stolen. It is all patented technology that has been stolen. So to be continued on that front, by the way, Nike has already sued Adidas or Adidas, depending where you're at. I don't know how you pronounce it. Puma and Lululemon, they've all been sued by Nike concerning patents on Flyknit technology. Adidas, Adidas and Puma have settled Lululemon. That's a case that is still going on. It's a big old shoe showdown, you guys, a shoe down. I'm scared it's going to drive up the cost of shoes. Next they'll be coming for our Crocs. Number nine is the chainsaw wielding thieves in the news and what they're thieving. It's all of trees. It's all of trees, you guys, they're stealing all of trees. Not maybe what you thought first off when you're hearing chainsaw wielding thieves or whatever. Maybe that's exactly where you went to. I was surprised. I was click baited a little by that headline. The price of olive oil is getting high enough that thieves are thieving that stuff sometimes with chainsaws, chopping off branches or sometimes just chopping down entire olive trees, which is not a sustainable business model. Why is the price of olive oil so high? It's all the things you imagine. You know the answer already. Bad crops, climate change, mercury and retrograde, that one maybe citation needed. We might have to switch to bacon grease instead of olive oil for our delicious salad dressings until this gets solved. Here's a quote from the story. In Greece, a one liter bottle of extra virgin olive oil jumped from eight or nine dollars last year to fifteen dollars this year. That's a lot of money.

It's about oxygen as the solution to fixing persistent leaky gut. We know leaky gut or intestinal permeability is a major issue. We know that the intestinal lining is held in by one cell or one cell lining of tight junctions and when that tight junction breaks, we call it intestinal permeability or leaky gut and now large protein molecules can cross the bloodstream or cross through the gut and into the bloodstream where they drive up inflammatory activity and we know leaky gut or intestinal permeability is at the root of autoimmune conditions, eczema, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, scleroderma, Hashimoto's. I mean, there's so many different autoimmune conditions. We know leaky gut or intestinal permeability is at the root and there are many things people try to do and especially in the natural health world to fix leaky gut and my guest today is Steven Wright, he is a health engineer, Kalish Functional Medicine Institute graduate and gut health specialist. He is the co -founder of HealthyGut .com. He lives in Boulder, Colorado with his wife, Shay and their two dogs and Steve Wright is an expert when it comes to gut health and he has created some amazing products at HealthyGut .com, some products that I use and endorse. They've got some awesome stuff and he's really been doing a lot of research on oxygen and oxygen and how to deliver oxygen to the gut to help support gut cell or enterocyte cell function and support and strengthen the tight junctions to heal up the gut and so I'm really excited about this podcast. You guys are gonna love this. If you know anybody that's dealing with autoimmune or chronic inflammatory conditions, please share this podcast with them. Sharing this can literally give them information that can give them a leg up on their health journey. So thank you for doing that and if you've not left us a 5 -star review, please do that now. When you leave us a review, it helps us reach more people and impact more lives with this message. Thank you so much for doing that. Thank you for being a part of our community and let's go into the show. Well, hey Steve, always great to connect with you. When I think about leaky gut and gut health, you're one of the top experts that comes to mind. I know you've been obviously putting a lot of research into this and putting out a lot of health content, I mean, for the last, what, 10, 15 years and so I know when I first got into practice and really started getting online and creating a lot of content around gut health, you were one of the names that kept popping up and I kept seeing some of your content and it was always very innovative and really, really, really thorough and so obviously, recently, you've started this great company, healthygut .com. I know my health coaching team, we use a lot of your products and recommend a lot of your products and I love the in -depth research that you're doing to find innovative products that are really supporting people and so I'm excited about this topic about oxygen. So let's get started by talking about some of the mistakes, obviously, you've been looking at intestinal permeability and leaky gut for a long time and how practitioners are treating this. What do you see as some of the biggest mistakes people are making? Yeah, well, thanks for having me back on and yeah, that's just something that I love to do is just try to push the field forward and make it easier for folks like me who are suffering. So when it comes to leaky gut, there's been a lot of new research that's come out in the last five to seven years and I feel like it hasn't quite made it into clinical practice yet and so I feel like a lot of clinics and a lot of people on the internet are still really stuck on the stuff that I was actually recommending a decade ago and I was really big on and it's still important and I think the number one thing is tight junctions. Everybody I'm sure in the summit is probably going to mention on the podcast, wherever it is, is going to be mentioning tight junctions and they are important because they do regulate a lot in the gut but I think if it was just about tight junctions, we would have solved this issue by now and we probably wouldn't even need a bunch of talks about it because that's kind of a singular issue and of course, that's I think one of the biggest issues whether we're talking integrative health or Western medicine is if you try to boil something down to one specific pathway or one single issue, you're probably marching in the wrong direction and so I think one of the biggest issues right now is just focusing on only tight junction barrier integrity because the simple fact is that the tight junctions are actually behind a bunch of other defense layers and so if all we're talking about is like exposed cells to the environment inside of the gut, we're missing all these other layers that they should maybe never be exposed to such as the mucus layer and the microbiome layer, the chemical layer and the atmospheric layer and so I think that the biggest issue right now is the extreme over focus on the tight junctions and the second biggest issue is people missing out on this atmospheric layer and I would say the third issue that I've missed pretty much my entire career and it sucks that I'm just now kind of getting it is sort of this immune dysfunction that happens after all that fail to tight junctions break apart, leaky guts ongoing, it causes this immune dysregulation that I think we're all so familiar with when it comes to any sort of inflammatory conditions and so I think the way that I thought about it was like if you just repaired all that, if you just got the gut working correctly, the immune system would go back to normal and I don't know that that's really the case if you get a hundred or a thousand sample cases in clinic, I haven't seen that to be the case.
A highlight from Persecuted Apostles, Prevailing Gospel
"When I was a child there was a time in which trick birthday candles were all the rage. It was always somewhat interesting to watch someone's face as they tried and tried and tried again to blow out those candles but to no avail. Some of us tried with all of our might and no matter how hard we tried the light that we had thought that we had snuffed out came back. It's been like that throughout as history different leaders have tried to snuff out God's Word. Whether it's Antiochus or Diocletian, whether it's philosophers or false religious systems or communist regimes, many have tried throughout history either to chain or to cut off the Word of God. Some have tried to prohibit transmissions, others have tried to cut off translations, but they all have one thing in common. They have all ultimately failed and that long list of failure you might say in the New Testament Church begins right here in Acts chapter 4. As we make our way into the text first I want to briefly create some context. We have been studying Acts chapter 3. We just finished that. We're making our way into Acts chapter 4 but I want to remind you what happened in Acts 3. There was a man who had been crippled for over 40 years. He was lame from his mother's womb and he was miraculously healed. You'll remember that a crowd ensued as a result of marveling at the miracle and that a massed audience provided an occasion for Peter's evangelistic preaching. Those who played a part, some role or another, when you look at Peter's speech, Peter's preaching, some who had some role or another in Jesus's crucifixion were actually given an opportunity to have that sin and all of their other sins blotted out, wiped away. They could have left in that time. If they would have heard the gospel and repented they could have left being like those who would come to sing in later generations that hymn, my sins are blotted out I know. And there would be many that day that would respond to the gospel by God's grace but there would also be those who would add to their guilt. And I'm not simply referring to those who would hear Peter's message and then in an unwise and undiscerning way not respond to it with faith by God's grace. I'm talking about persons that we know. Familiar villains will reemerge on the scene in our study of Acts chapter four and they are going to try to snuff out what was to them a familiar name. We'll see all of that and more as we get into our text today. We begin in Acts chapter 4 verse 1 where we read, Now as they spoke to the people, the priests, the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees came upon them. So in the beginning of verse 1 of chapter 4 you see it says now as they spoke to the people. Doubtless this refers to Peter and John. You're going to see that the lame man was with them. He was with them on this day and he's actually going to be with them when they appear before the Sanhedrin, before the Jewish Supreme Court if you will the next day. But right here you get the idea that Peter and John at least primarily are the ones who are doing the preaching and teaching because look at verse 2 they were teaching the people and they were also preaching in Jesus the resurrection from the dead. Now before we get to verse 2 just a little note here a couple of notes about these parties that were involved in coming upon Peter and John. If you look at verse 1 we have three groups mentioned. The first one is the priests. The priests. They were the ones who essentially functioned in different roles at the temple. They had different responsibilities in the service at the temple. They might burn incense, offer sacrifices, teach the people, do whatever tasks pertained to the sanctuary. Now there were in 1st And now interestingly it looks as though they would serve in kind of rotations. So it could have worked out in one of two ways people usually say. It could have been that they served for two weeks during the course of a year. They would go to the temple and officiate at the temple because remember these were priests and Levites and remember they were scattered throughout the land of Israel to teach the people the law and so on. But two weeks out of the year they would come to the temple and they would serve at the temple. You also have the possibility that they would go to serve at the temple once every two years and they'd stay there for a month. So that's the first group here. The priests. They officiated in the temple. They offered sacrifices, burned incense, taught the law. Then you have the second group or a second person. The captain of the temple. Now he was essentially the chief of security and if you look through commentaries you find over and over again this role was a highly regarded one. It is repeatedly said that his position was second to the high priest. That's how prominent this role was. He served over the temple guard. He was kind of over the Levitical police force if you will. So he's there. And then you have the last group, a group that many of you doubtless are familiar with, the Sadducees. They were a religious group in Israel. Power brokers if you will. They had a lot of political clout and they also had a lot of religious clout within the nation of Israel but I think they are best known for what they didn't believe. Remember the Sadducees are those who did not believe in a resurrection. They are not they are those who do not believe in angels or demons. They did not believe in an afterlife. They only believed in the first five books of Moses it is often said as being divinely inspired. They had a lot of sad beliefs and like my grandpa used to joke that is why they are sad you see. They had a lot of sad erroneous beliefs. They were also political opportunists. They were those who were in positions of power. It appears that they came to their power after the period of the Maccabees, that intertestamental period. They're like a group of priestly families that get connected with the power brokers in the land and they try to solidify their power. That's why they tried to keep things nice and calm with Rome because they had a nice set up for them and they didn't want anybody rocking the boat. They're also have said to have been a pretty cruel group. Josephus had noted and I saw this in the pulpit commentary that the Sadducees were more severe and cruel in their administration of justice than any other Jews. They went on to note their tenant of no life to come made them look to severe punishments in this life and doubtless they would have looked for severe punishments right away for Peter and John but you're going to see in God's Providence God set it up in such a way in which they weren't going to be able to do what they wanted to do. The Lord will and will see that in future studying. So that brings us to verse 2. They make haste these three groups the priests the captain of the temple in the Sadducees and the reasons for their haste are found in verse 2 where we read being greatly disturbed in other words they were greatly annoyed in the Greek here this verb annoyed or irritated or angered and it's compounded by the preposition dia so they were very upset very disturbed and we're told that they were disturbed because they Peter and John taught the people and preached in Jesus the resurrection from the dead so this is why they were angry reason number one Peter and John are teaching and they're like who are these guys well we didn't give them the green light to teach we are in control we are the Sadducees they did not go through the rabbinical teaching system who was their rabbi we don't know who these people are so they were bothered that these people were teaching and they didn't have the the right to it as it were the religious leadership of that day they hated anything that infringed upon their authority that's one of the reasons why they hated Jesus he infringed upon their authority and they thought he needed to be stopped well Peter and John were doing so and they thought they needed to be stopped as well second reason why they were upset is basically I think this was multifaceted because Peter and John were preaching in Jesus the resurrection from the dead I think there's a lot of aspects to why this made them upset first they were a part of the Sanhedrin many note a primary part of the Sanhedrin the majority part of the Jewish religious ruling council that wrongly sentenced Jesus to death and handed him over to Pilate so a lot of these Sadducees were the very people who looked at the Son of God the Messiah and said he deserves to die and now Peter and John are preaching no no no Jesus has risen from the dead so they were upset doubtless they were also upset because they didn't believe in a resurrection and now they're teaching people that Jesus has rose from the dead and that's going to undercut their erroneous message and if you undercut their erroneous message you're going to undercut their clout and they didn't want their clout to be undercut being right wasn't the priority as much as having power and wealth and influence being right was incidental if they were right along the way that was great but protecting their power was the priority think about this you see this even in Matthew 28 remember after the soldiers come back and they are telling to the religious leadership what happened and they're saying that the tomb is empty and so on what does the religious leadership tell them they create a lie for them Matthew 28 verse 12 they give them money they give them a large sum of money Matthew 28 verse 12 they tell them the lie Matthew 28 verse 13 and they assured them that if this ever got to Pilate that they would cover for them suffice it to say the Sadducees in this case did not have righteous indignation one other possibility as well and maybe they're all together these aren't mutually exclusive is that they thought if word got around to the Romans that a Messiah was being preached who rose from the dead the Romans could esteem this as being somewhat revolutionary and what would be the problem with that it could ruin the nice gig that the Sadducees had so maybe to one degree or another all of these things are what bothered them in Peter and John preaching in Christ the resurrection but you'll find in verse three their indignation didn't just stay mental they weren't just upset on the inside it manifested itself physically look at verse three and they laid hands on them please know this wasn't a good kind of laying on of hands you know they weren't praying for them they weren't like ordaining them to ministry they weren't doing any kind of a good laying on of hands or so on this was a laying on of hands that was a seizing interestingly the word that's used here in the Greek epi ballo that word ballo means to cast to throw epi you think typically of being a preposition that means upon it's like they threw their hands upon them they seized them so that's the picture that I think is meant to be painted here they come down they laid hands on them now I just want to tell you something that I would do if I was a filmmaker and if I were recreating this scene in the kind of movie where we're trying to depict acts chapter four what I would do is that the moment that acts for three happens the beginning of it and they laid hands on them at that moment I would all of a sudden insert a flashback to Jesus's teaching on the Mount of Olives where he said but before all of these things they will lay hands on you and persecute you delivering you up to synagogues and prisons you will be brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake here is the initial fulfillment of those very words and it would keep manifesting itself but I want to remind you here that this was a prophecy that Jesus made this was the initial fulfillment of it and his word always comes to pass you can believe it you can believe the words of scripture you could believe every word that Jesus said he has a perfect streak that will never be broken some of you might remember my favorite pitcher when I was younger oral her shizer he pitched for the Los Angeles Dodgers believe he's a professing Christian brother in Christ and in 1998 he had an amazing year the Dodgers go on to win the World Series I believe he won the Cy Young Award that year and that year he pitched what I believe still is the record for number of innings pitched without giving up a run 59 innings pitched without a run being given up and if you were a baseball fan if you were oral her shizer fan then you were watching those games saying it's the street going to continue is it going to continue and when it did you were excited but eventually you were disappointed because that streak like other streaks in professional sports don't go on forever but with Jesus you will never be disappointed his perfect streak of having his words fulfilled will always stay it will never be broken and this is a witness to that right here in Acts chapter 4 verse 3 so they seized them and they put them in custody until the next day so the Sanhedrin had a rule they had a law that they essentially subscribe to that they would not try people at night before dawn didn't stop them when they wanted to kill Jesus that rule so they were okay with breaking their own rules probably they based this rule on Jeremiah 21 12 and ministered justice every morning and it didn't stop them from persecuting Jesus and having their kangaroo courts happen during the night but in this case they were going to wait they needed some sleep perhaps and they were going to wait until the next day Peter and John are put in custody until then and then we're told to get a it was late to use language from Matthew 14 15 notice a little bit of context here this event began at around 3 p .m. because remember that Peter and John were going up to the temple around the ninth hour that was 3 p .m. now that it's late now that it's evening you know that it's at least 6 p .m.

A highlight from PEPE Coin Is Back! New All-Time Highs Incoming?
"Pepe is once again one of the strongest performers in the market, rising over 82 .43 % over the past week. So what does this mean for the crypto market and is Pepe officially back? Should you long? Let's talk about Pepe in today's video because something is definitely happening here and I think there's actually a really interesting trade around Pepe and the meme coins at the moment that I want to get into. But firstly let's talk about actually how Pepe rose to prominence. We know that it was essentially just this random meme coin that seemingly came out of nowhere and took the internet and of course the crypto world by storm when it launched. I mean just look at its website it's a pretty janky looking website not so professional but they had the power of community behind them and they became quickly a fan favorite on twitter which resulted in the price of Pepe absolutely skyrocketing capitalizing at a 1 .5 billion dollar valuation. This made it the third most valuable meme coin in all of crypto after Doge and Shiba for a brief period of time. This made early buyers extremely rich. In front of you you can see the top 10 biggest profitors from the Pepe trade with the number one place making 14 million, number two making 14, 14, 11, 4, 3, 3, 4 people made absolutely crazy money on Pepe and it wasn't just the team and the insiders and these sort of people that made money off Pepe it was your normies as well. I mean even myself if you remember back into the earlier of the year Pepe was actually my best trade of the entire year. Hustle as well called a 10x on Pepe and did really well. Even David from the trading competition actually shorted Pepe and made a bunch of money there and actually ended up winning the Bybit trading competition a 100k prize. So there was definitely a lot of trading opportunities around it and it made a lot of people rich at the time and it was one of the most explosive and powerful trades of the year. But ever since then things have just seemed to be getting worse and worse for Pepe. Things really took a turn on the 25th of August where we saw some weird movement in terms of the changes to the Pepe multisig. You can see this user here pointing out that the Pepe multisig wallet changed the threshold to make transactions to just two out of eight signatures which was of course a red flag and then the Pepe coin official twitter came out and said that they were actually experiencing internal conflict and essentially some of the team members were being led by big egos and greed and they had to get rid of them and make a bunch of changes in the process. So this obviously resulted in the token absolutely crashing in price and things were made a lot worse by just a couple weeks later their official telegram being hacked. So it seemed like things were just getting worse and worse and worse for Pepe and as you can see the chart did not respond well. From its retest of the range high it dropped over 56 % so despite it being one of the best performing coins at the time and actually relative strength wise versus bitcoin and a lot of the other altcoins it took an absolute nosedive and smashed through its lower support band. So that's the recap but what is happening now? Well of course bitcoin is absolutely pumping and there's more interest on the crypto market at the moment. Now meme coins in general are generally your crypto retail pulse that indicate retail's proclivity to investing crypto and interest in crypto and although I don't think retail's fully come back to crypto I do think that it's some sort of measure that the market is coming back to crypto. So that's one thing to observe but bitcoin of course performing super strongly is still leading most of the altcoins. So although there are some outliers like Pepe as you can see here that are performing really well bitcoin is still overall leading the altcoin market as you would expect at this stage in the crypto cycle. But there's a reason why Pepe is leading it's because of a couple really powerful announcements that have started to garner hype back in the crypto community. So of course Pepe is some sort of retail pulse for crypto when retail comes back they like to speculate they buy things like Doge, Pepe you know all your favorite meme coins but it's not just that being the reason why Pepe is rising in price it's the fact that there's been a couple major announcements. The first one happened on the 24th of October which was three days ago where the team announced that seven trillion Pepe were burnt which is around six million dollars worth and they also announced that they brought on a new team of advisors to guide Pepe forward uses for the remaining 3 .79 trillion tokens attributed to the original team for strategic partnerships and marketing opportunities are currently being explored. Then it was revealed that 169 billion Pepe from the team worth 200k was converted to USDT and is being transferred to cover the cost of strategic partnerships and integrations that we look forward to announcing in the coming weeks. So pretty much this original wallet that held a lot of the Pepe which was one of the reasons why people were becoming extremely skeptical of the project is essentially being sold off slowly or burnt in order to benefit the project. I think the burn was a leap of good faith at least in terms of extending an olive branch to the community after some of the hardship that they have experienced this year which no doubt took a knock on the fundamentals of Pepe and I think this announcement just goes to show the power of announcements at the moment given the fact that bitcoin is now starting to exhibit more positive price momentum. Typically when you get positive price momentum in crypto this tends to lift all ships in terms of projects starting to become a bit more comfortable with making major announcements that they may have been delaying due to market conditions. So as market conditions improve typically you see more announcements the projects that have good announcements clearly can create a positive effect for the token price as you can get some hype back into the narrative and this is something that Pepe is clearly doing right now but it's also logic that you can apply to many other projects in crypto to try and time these announcement pumps or at least trade around major announcements going to be lots of opportunities I think especially if bitcoin holds up over the next few months to trade altcoin news and altcoin announcements. So what's happening with Pepe now in terms of price and where do I think it's going next? Well firstly the fact that they are willing to be strategic with their treasury here and the fact that they're also willing to come out with major announcements I think is a bullish thing for the token no doubt justifies to some extent why the token is pumped in price and I would actually be interested here if bitcoin holds up to maybe take some long positions on major pullbacks I never think it's wise aping into a major pump like this especially when you're in the mid range of a trend and Pepe has really clearly defined trends that it tends to stick to but if you get any major pullbacks into key zones and you could mark out this 110651 level here as a key zone in the mid range and then your next key zone for me is actually the range low at 84. If you do get consolidation around these zones or you see the price starting to reverse I don't think it actually is a bad play considering there's some hype coming back if bitcoin holds in price big caveat on the if because of course you don't want to buy into the hype and then bitcoin sells off and then you're stuck with a Pepe bag which ends up retracing. I also think there are a few bag holders that are underwater and are probably going to start taking profit in this zone so I don't think you're going to miss out on the trade if you don't long today but I do think it's an interesting one with some of the hype coming back the announcements for Pepe I'm certainly not shorting this I'd more be leaning towards the long side of course not financial advice do your own research of course but for me that's where I'm leaning and actually for Pepe this demonstrated a really important thing one of the doubts and skepticism that I had over the past couple months was the fact that a lot of the FUD impacted the project what would the community then think of Pepe because it's all community driven right the entire project is based on sentiment it's a meme coin if sentiment turns for a meme coin then it becomes not sustainable as a trade and it can end up dying off we've seen a lot of meme coins come and a lot of meme coins go due to FUD and due to the narrative just dying off and of course this runs the risk of happening with Pepe considering the FUD that it's experienced but the fact that it's responded so well to positive news and positive announcements being teased actually gives me a positive sign that maybe the market is still respecting Pepe as a genuine meme coin alongside other meme coins like Doge and I had a thesis back earlier in the year that Pepe could actually outperform Doge next cycle this was back in June 2023 and the logic I used was Pepe has less underwater bag holders people are a bit fatigued by the Doge meme there's more of a discrepancy in market caps so thinner liquidity so it's easy to pump the token price a few good reasons but over the past few months I was reconsidering that stance because I have started to acknowledge that Doge has a really strong narrative behind it the Elon factor it has more staying power retail knows Doge more so when retail is getting back into crypto they tend to know what Doge is whereas Pepe is more of like an on -chain thing that was born this year amongst the crypto degens right so I've come around on this thesis to a relatively neutral territory but I've kind of come to the conclusion that both I think can become bonafide plays Pepe front runs Doge because it's more of a crypto community play whereas Doge is probably better for your general retail entry into crypto which you haven't really seen yet I know at the start of the video I said retail is coming back into crypto but that's happening in very small amounts and that that kind of retail is the retail that was already in crypto to some extent the retail that I'm talking about with Dogecoin that could come in later next cycle those participants maybe haven't ever used crypto before or only dabbled with crypto during the bull run so I think Doge appeals more to those guys so now just an update on this thesis I kind of sit in the middle here I think Pepe is over the past few days at least exhibiting that it is willing to respond which is obviously a great sign for the fundamentals of Pepe and the burn has gone a long way to justifying this repricing because obviously there are less tokens in supply now but I think that's also gotten some hype back for the token which is great because meme coins are built on community and meme coins are built on hype but I also certainly respect the Doge trade and that's why I'm saying I'm sitting more neutral in this trade now because I just think Doge as a DCA spot hold is not a terrible bet to be honest going to next cycle so that's my opinion on Doge so in terms of trading Pepe now I did mark out some of the key levels before but I just want to acknowledge once again how well Pepe has kept structure I mean pretty much bounced perfectly of this level at the 147 zone had nice bounces had a pretty clean rejection retest rejected again tagged range this low and has actually reclaimed and also tagged on the way up in the form of a retest so pretty much Pepe gives perfect retest I don't know what it is but for some reason this obeys market structure really well and it becomes really easy to trade around these key range high and range low levels if you want to take the technical peak of Pepe then this becomes mid -range and this becomes range high but in the lower time frame so the one hour and the four hour these become your range low and mid -range but it's mainly just semantics easier three zones that you want to take major trades off both to the short side and the long side for me right now though as I mentioned before leaning more towards the long side in terms of Pepe as a long -term bet I actually don't mind it it's a risky one it's a speculative one I fully acknowledge that Doge is the safer play it's hiring market cap retail knows it Pepe has some inherent risk given the fact that it went through what it went through with the internal team conflict that's never a good sign for a project so clearly some red flags but due to the market cap being a lot less we know what happens when it pumps it pumps harder and this was very clear on on the first week that it launched what it ended up doing in terms of price so that's something to keep in mind in terms of the fundamentals in terms of centralized exchange data a few interesting data points to look at here you can see Pepe volume been spiking over the past few days if you look on the monthly chart we've seen a lot of interest coming back as well open interest for Pepe also starting to peak here at a hundred million dollars which is quite a lot I mean for recent times but I don't think Pepe's hit that since inception really since it first launched on exchanges so open interest starting to come back meaning people are starting to trade it more obviously that involves some leverage as well more liquidations which involves more general trading activity so the metrics are starting to doge but I actually want to look at how it could potentially affect the crypto market this isn't necessarily some insightful observation but I mean it gives you a little bit of a look into what happened last time Pepe obviously pumped during May it hit its peak roughly on May 5th you can actually see when Pepe started to peak Bitcoin started to actually have its huge sell -off and I don't know if you remember back in May but all the on -chain alts started to tank after Pepe started tanking so it's interesting that Pepe actually marked the local top back then a lot of the time market tops in the short term are indicated by crazy meme coin blow -off tops and although Pepe isn't indicating that it's had a blow -off top yet it's something to keep note of given the fact that Bitcoin dipped last time it's not an indicator I would get super bearish off the back of but it is just something to note definitely watch Bitcoin here and when Pepe starts pumping you definitely have to take note but it's also a sign that some of those guys that were on the sidelines those retail guys are getting interested again but one plausible explanation for the pump is not just that it's the fact that they had a major burn which obviously impacts price because when you cut off a large amount of the supply it's got a reprice to the upside although it still wasn't a burn that was in it was six million dollars it's not in line with the market cap of Pepe which is currently sitting at what is it 500 million dollars substantially more right so that's something to look at as well something that I've been doing in terms of trading on all -chain altcoins but also a coin like Pepe which is on a lot of the DEXs and not on all centralized exchanges is using an application like Kyber AI to actually get data based on the bullishness or bearishness of the coin using on -chain analytics so if you haven't tried this out there's a link in the description below to Kyber AI you'll actually be able to see when Pepe shifts from bullish to bearish or bearish to bullish territory which can help you get for confluence your trade entries alongside TA so if you haven't already link in the description below to Kyber AI it's completely free search up the Pepe token and you'll be able to get a lot of really interesting data that's AI generated from Kyberswap's machine learning algorithm to get information on the on -chain data price analysis of Pepe and one more reminder before I go if you want to win half a bitcoin all you need to do is go onto Bantle Bubbles which is an amazing application and enter in your UID your price prediction for bitcoin on January 1st and the closest person will win half a bitcoin all you need to do is have a Banta account to Bybit or Bitgett or Coindw there's a link in the description below to Bybit or Bitgett if you want to sign up claim those bonuses you'll need to enter your UID once you enter your UID you can put in your price prediction and you can submit your prediction and if you're closest you win half a bitcoin you can see most people here guessing that bitcoin is going to be bullish by the time January 1st rolls around you can see a lot of green predictions here so enter your prediction do you think bitcoin is going to be hitting some of these targets like 52k like some of these people are suggesting super interesting stuff I'm going to leave a link in the description below to Banta Bubbles and the links you'll need to sign up if you don't have one of those exchange accounts already as well as of course Kyber AI as well are you bullish on Pepe long term let me know in the comments below and I'll see you in the next one.

Got a great episode for you today. We're going to be talking all about the food industry, big food industry and how they actually pay health influencers in order to get their message out. Ultimately, big food industry profits off of ultra processed foods that use very cheap ingredients and chemical based ingredients that they're able to get inexpensively or they're able to have certain patents on and they want to be able to sell more products with these ingredients and so therefore they want the average individual to think that they're healthy or they're part of a balanced diet. But we know these things are extremely unhealthy, that they're linked with chronic inflammation, that they disrupt the gut microbiota and they lead to chronic disease. But big food industry has been doing this for a long time and one of the common questions people will ask me is they'll say, well, if there are so many toxins in our food and if we shouldn't be eating a lot of these things that are all over the place and that I grew up eating, then why don't I see more of this information in the media? And the reason why is because big food, big food industry that makes all of these different processed foods, when you go into the grocery store, all the foods in the middle aisles, all those foods are made by big food industry, pretty much just about all of them and they're making incredibly high profits off of these foods.
A highlight from The Ongoing Conflict: Targeted Massacre and War Crimes with Sean Parnell
"Beware of politicians who you agree with all the time, because 100%, they are lying to you. Ladies and gentlemen, distinguished guests and my fellow citizens, America's comeback starts right now, from the land of the free and the brave, I love my country, they can't take. Welcome back, Mike Speraza here in studio today, I have a special guest now, Sean Parnell, a combat veteran, a New York Times bestselling author, and host of Battleground on Red Voice Media. Sean, thank you so much for joining us. Hey Mike, thanks for having me. I'm going to get into your show in a little bit when we finish, because I want to hear about your show and all the good stuff that you're doing, but first I want to talk about this Israeli -Hamas conflict that we've seen now for the better part of the last two, two Pretty sad stuff all around, seeing what's going on to the people of Israel, the innocent people of Palestine too, there's innocent people getting hurt, killed, treated very poorly in that region, but I want to start with your thoughts today. Today we are recording this, Joe Biden is in Israel right now, your thoughts on him going out there, and again, I'm going to give you my thoughts quick, I don't know Sean how this guy is going to do any good there, he can barely talk to the people of America in I can't imagine it going very well when he's sitting there with a little reader. Yeah, there's a reason why, you know, when Joe Biden is giving a scripted speech, people say that the teleprompter writer or the teleprompter itself is the most powerful entity in the world at that specific moment, and it's because you're exactly right, Mike, Joe Biden can barely string together a coherent sentence, he can barely walk up a small flight of stairs, I often say on the show that he's just an animated corpse, I mean, it's like every morning they dip the guy in the Lazarus pit, and it's less effective as every day of his presidency goes on, and so it doesn't fill me with confidence that he's going into one of the most complex geopolitical situations in the world, and has been one of the most complex geopolitical situations in the world for the past hundred years, so in fact, as we've seen so far, it means it looks like almost all of our Arab partners in the area have canceled meetings with Joe Biden based on the propaganda that Israel hit a hospital, which of course now we know is not the case, and of course we saw the news this morning of Biden in a meeting with Netanyahu, I mean, honestly, Mike, just rambling about stuff that was just totally incoherent and didn't make any sense, he trailed off into the distance, and so it's not an overstatement to say, and it really upsets, I hate when members of Congress and politicians are like, World War III's on the horizon, it's like, isn't that a commentary on the world that we live in when people think World War III, oh my god, it's just a political talking point, but it is true that with this guy at the helm, it's very, very clear that our enemies see this and are taking full advantage of it, and that's why you see all the chaos happening around the world. Yeah, and obviously this isn't the first bit of chaos we've seen over the last three years, there's plenty behind it as well, and here's my thing too, like, the Joe Biden thing, like, I get it, if it's like a PR thing you gotta do, that's fine, but what's starting to really irritate me, Sean, is now we have people like my governor in New York, Kathy Hochul, that's like, I need to get to Israel and really meet with these folks, Kathy Hochul can't run New York State, what the hell is she gonna do in the Middle East? I mean, it's such a great point, and obviously New York has problems of its own, whether it's with Kathy Hochul or Eric Adams, the mayor of New York City, you know, who, by the way, just in the past month said that Israel was gonna, or, I'm sorry, that New York City was gonna collapse because of the migrant crisis, goes to Mexico, meets with Mexican leaders, and then comes back and promptly say that we need to keep our borders open, so I don't know how those two statements exist in the same world, but I'll tell you, like, something that concerns me greatly, circling back, like, Jen Psaki -style to the Israeli -Gaza conflict and the tragedy that happened there, a couple things on that, and let's just walk through this at 30 ,000 feet. When Hamas attacked Israel, I say this often, Mike, but it's not, it is underselling it that that's, it does not do, it does a disservice to what happened to the Israelis by calling it an attack, because it wasn't an attack, it was a massacre, a targeted massacre of innocent men, women, children, elderly, Holocaust survivors, seriously, take a second and just really let that sink in. Somehow you survived the Holocaust, you're in your 90s, and now you're captured by Hamas and being taunted on camera for the world to see? That is evil incarnate, it's horrific, it should not happen in our world. I mean, they murdered, killed babies, they raped women, they paraded these women around the streets, bleeding as if they're some sort of trophies, they took women, children, babies as hostages, they're using those hostages as human shields right now, I mean, all of these things, every single one of these things is considered a war crime of the highest order, you know, so Israel responds, right, and by the way, all these Republican politicians come out and immediately they start saying that Israel has a right to defend itself, but I think Republicans need to really hone their messaging here, because of course as we saw yesterday with the propaganda about the hospital, the public opinion fight in the messaging is critically important, it's not enough just to say Israel has a right to defend itself. Well, what does that mean, right? As a military tactical term, it means that Israel has a right, you know, to fire a few indirect fire attacks or bomb a few Hamas targets in Gaza, and that, hey, look, it's proportional, right? There should be a ceasefire now, and that's what you've heard from Democrat politicians taking advantage of the rhetoric that Republicans use with the whole phrase proportional response and ceasefire, okay? But what Republicans have to get comfortable saying is that Israel has a right to eradicate and destroy Hamas. I mean, and the reason for that is, is that Israel has proposed and extended an olive branch to Hamas into the Palestinian Authority multiple times in the past 75 years and proposed multiple two -state solutions with the Palestinian authorities, and Hamas have of course rejected each and every time. And so there comes a point in time where you have to say enough is enough. And I'd also say this, you know, the Palestinian Authority and Hamas, they demand a two -state solution, and what that means is they demand a country of their own. Well, if you're evaluating the potential of a country, right, and you're saying you're just like asking questions, and you're like, what's the charter, like, what's the mission of your country? And the number one mission of that country is to commit genocide against your neighbor. Maybe you don't deserve a country. I'm sorry, maybe you're not entitled to that. So the idea that the Palestinian Authority and Hamas are entitled to a country is I reject that premise right off the bat. So my point is, is that Israel made a commitment after that attack to go after Hamas and destroy them. And I said very publicly that two things need to happen in order for them to accomplish that mission. They have to have the military capability to do it, Israel has that, they have to have the tactical flexibility and the space and the freedom, which means free from international pressure to do it. And that is where Israel is going to have problems, and that is where the Biden administration has done everything they can to hamstrung the Israeli Defense Force in this way. Israel was poised to invade Gaza after surgical strikes on Hamas on day one. They were right on the border, and the Biden administration has done everything that they can to delay that, knowing full well that every day they delay, the percentage of Israeli casualties that will happen if a ground invasion actually happens goes up exponentially. Right now, and this is just military doctrine speaking, Mike, right now the Israelis are poised to take anywhere because of the delay between 33 % and 60 % casualties in the devastation that surrounds Gaza and what they call military operations on urban terrain. That's not Sean Marnell talking, that's U .S. military doctrine. Casualties will be high because Hamas has had time to set booby traps and place snipers, delaying complex ambushes, to put in IEDs, I mean, it's just going to be treacherous as hell. And ultimately, that's why I believe Biden is in Israel to delay that invasion further because Biden made his objective very, very clear, Mike, that he does not want Israel to invade Gaza. He said that on 60 Minutes on Sunday, so here we are. So I think what's frustrating for me, I'm a person that's never had military experience, so I'm speaking to the likes of, we should be trusting the people that have military experience, right? We should be talking to more people like you. I interviewed Joe Kent last week, too. People who have had experience, great guy. We should be listening to those types of people, not Joe Biden, not Rashida Tlaib, people that actually know the battlefield and what's going on out there, and Joe Kent said exactly what you just said, Sean, they're going to booby trap everything. And this is not combat like you see in a movie or something, he's like, this is the most dangerous of combat that you're going to face going into buildings, which you have no idea who's in or out of there, right? You have no idea if it's a bomb, if it's people, if it's hostages, you have no idea. And the level of complexity of it is off the charts, and that's what bothers me. We have all these talking heads on TV, on social media, everywhere that know nothing about it and don't care to, so they can just push a narrative. It drives me insane. You're exactly right, Mike. And I'll tell you just for your listeners, for your viewers, why it was critically important from a tactical standpoint and to minimize civilian casualties that Israel invade immediately after their airstrikes. There's something in the military called echelonment of fires. I've done this, I've fought in this terrain hundreds, if not thousands of times in Afghanistan. And the goal with echelonment of fires is you hit with your biggest bombs first, as you're moving as infantry, me is moving to the objective. And as you get closer to the objective, you diminish your firepower. So you go from maybe an airstrike to artillery. And then as you get even closer, you go from artillery to mortars. And once you get even closer to the objective, you turn off the mortars and then infantry hits the objective. The reason for that is you don't want to give your enemy even a second to breathe. And so every second that you delay gives them a second to consolidate, reorganize, and fortify their defenses and harden their defenses to make an invasion in Gaza, in this specific tactical example, almost completely untenable. And here's the deal, Joe Biden knows that, and there are people in our military that are telling him that, but he's just completely blowing it off. And so he's blowing it off and he's talking out of both sides of his mouth saying, is Israel has a right to defend itself while simultaneously freeing up $6 billion in sanction free money to Iran, who's then using that money to export terror around the world, crazy. And what scares me even as sometimes more than this is these people, you know, our, our American troops, they don't want to die when they go to war. They know that's a risk, right? But they, these guys on the other side with Hamas, they, they like praise dying out there and blowing up people and not caring what happened. And you're facing a much different enemy than I think a lot of American people, especially these Gen Z kids and millennials understand, like, this is not like love wins out there. This is the scariest of the scary, the most dangerous of the most dangerous. And you know, I'm going to move to my next point here with, with Rashida Tlaib, this, this attack on the hospital, I'll call it an attack, I guess, but on the hospital yesterday ended up being what it looks like right now from the actual data and evidence to be a, a, a, a weapon used by either Hamas or somebody like Hamas, a terrorist group that was misfired or shot there on purpose. I don't know, but here's my problem. We have American politicians coming out that moment, Sean, saying, you see, Israel did this. They killed, you know, innocent people. They went after a hospital. That's really dangerous. Is it not? It's incredibly dangerous. And not just that, you know, first of all, it was, it was strangely all at the exact same time that that hospital was hit. And I'll get into the tactics of how that happened in a second, but the exact time that the associated press, the Washington post, the New York times and Democrat politicians all echoed the same thing. They elevated terrorist propaganda. And that's exactly what it was. Terrorist propaganda, because who fired that rocket. Now it looks like it was Islamic Jihad, which is a state department declared terrorist group. Okay. They elevated terrorist propaganda and they immediately blamed Israel. And what happened is that that caused a chain reaction around the world, caused violence and uprisings and U .S. and Israeli embassies all throughout the Middle East. The blame for that, and there needs to be accountability for this, but the blame for that should be laid at the feet of these fake news media outlets and these journalists who are not just the enemy of the people, they're, they're an enemy of global stability. There needs to be accountability for that. And especially these Democrat members of Congress, I mean, why they haven't been expelled from You can bet that if it were Republicans doing irresponsible things like this, the Democrats would remove them from committees. If they had the majority and do everything they can to expel them from Congress, here's what kills me though. It's so anti -America in every stretch of the imagination. These people are the most anti -America humans of all time. You should not be representing our country if you hate the country. And that's what the Rashida Tlaib, the Elon, Omar's AOC, they hate America, Sean. They should not be in politics. I mean, I completely agree. And, and, and, and just look, if you look at the facts of yesterday's attacks, I want to make sure I touch on this. So I think like 30 to 40 % of rockets fired by these terrorist organizations from Gaza into Israel fall short. And that's because, I mean, people were wondering the Democrats are out there like AOC talking about collective punishment and how they're, how they're the Israelis cut off water. But the reason why the Palestinians don't have water is that Hamas dug up their water pipes and uses them as field rocket launchers. And that's why these rockets fall short. And that's also why the Palestinians don't have water right now because, because of Hamas and the moral responsibility for, for civilians caught in the middle on the side of Gaza and the civilians murdered in Israel is because of Hamas and not the Israeli defense force. Where does this end? Because they have not gone in yet. The IDF has not gone in yet. I would assume, and to your point, I would hope soon, because as the days go on, it gets more and more dangerous, but when do they go in and then how does this conflict start and finish? I don't know where to set, where to go from here. Yeah, it's a good question and it's a complicated answer. And I think, you know, is what, what the Israeli military, along with their, you know, is, you know, Bibi Netanyahu is going to have to decide and they're going to have to evaluate what's called the tactical risk and balance it with the mission objective. And what I mean by that is if the mission objective is to destroy Hamas, you have to look at the tactical risks and assess what the cost of that mission would mean for the Israeli military. And right now, 33 % to 60 % casualties. If you're a military commander in Israel, I mean, that's tough, man. That's tough to say that you're going to, you know, casualty doesn't necessarily mean death, but it could mean, you know, a severe injury or wounds that then the Israelis are going to have to take care of. And it's just, it's just a real tough decision. They're going to have to make that decision on their own, but here's the deal. If it ends up, if Israel does not destroy Hamas, the cycle of violence will continue. And you can bet that Iran is going to continue to fund and export terror around the world. They're going to fund Hezbollah. They might even attack Israel from the north, which that really scares me because if Iran and Hezbollah attack Israel from the north, it triggers the war powers act. It actually, it actually complies us by law to respond, uh, to respond to that invasion of, of an ally, which would be an escalatory possibility. That would just be a very, very scary thing, especially when you consider that the war in Ukraine seems to be going on in perpetuity, along with us taxpayer dollars, going to fund Ukrainian pensions with no end in sight and no mission. You add to that a war, essentially in the middle East against the Islamic world, because the war continues to escalate and if American troops find themselves dragged into the conflict, you can bet that that will galvanize the Islamic world against us. And so it's something, you know, like, and again, it doesn't exactly inspire confidence that Joe Biden's at the helm trying to navigate these really tough diplomatic times. So it's, we'll see, we'll see. That's exactly what I was going to end with there. Could there be a worst leader for us and really the world, right? There's not a worst leader for the world right now that a guy, you know, you mentioned before I called weekend at Bernie's, cause that's what we're dealing with here. Like we're just moving them around where, you know, uh, he's doing as he's told literally, it's just not very good.

We've got a great topic today. It's on food sensitivities that drive leaky gut and autoimmunity. I get so many questions about different food sensitivities, and so we're going to dive into that in great detail today, and our guest is the best -selling author, Dr. Peter Osborne. He is the best -selling author of No Grain, No Pain. He's often referred to as the gluten -free warrior, and he's one of the most sought -after alternative nutritional experts in the world. He's been on our podcast multiple times and always love our conversations with him. He is one of the world's leading authorities on gluten sensitivity. He lectures nationally to both the public as well as doctors on that topic and many other nutritionally related topics. He's the founder of the Gluten -Free Society, the author of The Gluten -Free Health Solution and the Glutenology Health Matrix, and he's got a lot of great content. If you look up gluten -free society, he's got a lot of great content there. And again, we're going to go into great detail on food sensitivities. You're going to really get a master class in that today. So without further ado, we'll jump into the interview. However, if you have not left us a five -star review on Apple iTunes, wherever you listen to this podcast, now is the time to do that. Just go to Apple iTunes, scroll to the bottom. That's where you can leave the five -star review. When you do that, it helps us reach more people and impact more lives with this message. Thanks so much for doing that, and let's go into the show. Well, Dr. Osborne, always great to talk with you. I know you're an expert when it comes to clinical nutrition and food sensitivity. Is this something you see in your practice all the time? So one of the common questions that people ask is, what is the difference between a food allergy and a food sensitivity, right? Because some people will confuse that term and they constantly will say food allergy, but there is a difference. Yeah, great question. I think the important thing to understand is any of the people watching, if you've been to an allergist and they did like a skin prick test or even a blood test, what they were measuring for was allergy. Now allergy is specifically defined as an IgE -mediated response. So this is a type of antibody that generally will cause very acute symptoms. Most people know when they're allergic to something because they feel it within a three -hour window. So from immediate, there's this window of reaction on what's called an IgE -mediated or an acute allergy, and that is immediate to three hours is the window. So symptoms like swelling of the lips, urticaria, hives, wheels, swelling, watery, teary, itchy eyes, these are all things that are super common. If you've ever known someone with like a peanut allergy and they ate a peanut or got exposed to a peanut and they were in the hospital and they pumped them full of epinephrine, that's an allergy. Okay, now in the same category under allergy, there's something known as a subacute allergy, which is the symptoms are not quite as aggressive. Because if you ever look at an IgE lab test, they grade an allergy response with six classes of grades, right? So you could have no response, which would be zero, and then you could have anywhere from a one to a six, six being the highest, right? So six would be like that anaphylactic type of reaction. A four or a five grade, those would be not quite anaphylactic, but still quite severe. But grades one, two, and three, we put in a subacute category, and this will cause symptoms that aren't always immediately aggressively obvious or life -threatening. So things like elevated heart rate, because what happens with an acute allergy is it cranks up your adrenaline. So your heart rate would go up, your blood pressure might go up, you might see a kid bouncing off the walls, right, with their behavior because of that type of response. So again, allergy, that we have severe and then we have subacute, and then we have sensitivity. Now sensitivity is a different wheelhouse altogether. There are multiple ways the immune system reacts to food. So we just said acute allergy is IgE. Now a delayed allergy, or really technically a sensitivity, can be caused by an elevation in IgG, IgM, IgA. There's also something called an immune complex. And then there's another reaction called a T cell response. And then there are others, but these are the kind of five big categories of what can be measured in a lab setting. And these are more of a window of three hours to three weeks. So now we're not talking about, hey, I ate this and my lips swelled and I immediately had problems or symptoms. We're talking about, I ate this, it created just a persistent ongoing level of inflammation. And I might not have felt it to the severe degree that I would feel an acute allergy. And so this is why sometimes it's subtle and it can be hard to detect. So I know a lot of people will try to do like an elimination diet. And elimination diets are great. I think that's a great place to start because it's free and you should be paying attention to how you feel when you eat your food. But a lot of times the sensitivities will not be found through elimination diets and they really need to be laboratory tested for because this is a hurdle many people hit when they're trying to overcome their autoimmune problem or their leaky gut problem is they don't, they no longer know which foods they should be avoiding. They've cut out what's obvious, but they're still struggling, right? And so this is where sensitivities come in again. It's just a much longer window and the reaction is typically subtle, consistent, persistent inflammation. And so that might look like joint pain that just won't go away. That might look like, why do I have these skin rashes that are just constant and persistent? Why do I have this constant ache in my GI tract or this constant heartburn, even though I fast or even though I do things properly? And that, again, it's a low level of inflammation just slowly erodes your body's resources and makes you sicker and sicker over time. So those are the two main kind of differences. Yeah, for sure. And what are the most common food sensitivities that you see? Number one, gluten. I mean, hands down, I mean, I would argue that gluten, anyone with an autoimmune condition needs to be gluten -free. At least that's what I've seen clinically. I'm sure you have probably a similar experience with it, but gluten is number one, dairy is number two, sugar is number three, actually processed sugar, which isn't good for you anyway. But again, a lot of people need to have a test to show them, hey, this is black and white. You need to avoid that. And then beyond that, it's very much unique to the person. I mean, one of the stories I talk a lot about is the story of Ginger, who I wrote about her in my book. She was nine years old and had a terminal diagnosis. She had six months to live, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. And she was allergic, or not, I say allergic, she was sensitive to blueberries. And every morning her mom would feed her a blueberry smoothie because blueberries are superfoods, right? And they're anti -inflammatory and they have so many great benefits, but in her case, they were part of her problem. So that's pretty random. If you think about, okay, blueberries, most people don't know, okay, they don't even suspect of food like blueberries or broccoli, right, or Brussels sprouts or something like that. I have people reactive to beef and people reactive to chicken or eggs, sometimes different nuts. So it's very unique to the individual. But I'd say if you're just guessing at where to start, maybe you don't have the doctor to run the test. Start with gluten, start with dairy, start with sugar. Those three things probably will make you feel tremendously better just by avoiding. Yeah, it makes sense. There's a common phrase that we use in natural medicine, one man's superfood may be another man's poison, right? And so, again, the idea of superfoods, we typically are calling it that based on the nutritional content, but not how the body's immune system is responding to it. And that's really what we're focusing on today is not nutritional element of the food, but the way the immune system is responding to it. And you can have amazing nutritious food like an egg, which is incredibly nutritious for your body. But if your immune system is reacting to it, it's not gonna be good for you. You're gonna get a net negative when you put that in your body. Yeah. Yeah, for sure. And so, there's a common diet out there that a lot of people that have autoimmunity or chronic inflammation use is the paleo autoimmune diet, right? It eliminates a lot of different common triggers. What have you seen with that? Have you seen good results using that? So I don't use specific generalized diets in my practice. Now, in my online community, I encourage people to avoid those three. So like our no grain, no pain diet is dairy -free, sugar -free, grain -free, not just gluten, but all grains. As well in the deeper phases of the diet, we eliminate things like nightshades and eggs and other things. But that's just generic advice. Anybody who comes to see me in my practice, I test, right? Especially if you're at a point where you've already guessed as well as you can on your own, like I'm not gonna guess better than a person who lives in their own body, feels what they feel every day. So I always run the testing. As far as diets like AIP, autoimmune paleo, I mean, they're great places to start again, but a lot of people that come to me are already on that diet. And that's where they're frustrated is that they're already really restrictive in that diet. And so my thought is, sometimes we have to restrict to expand, but why restrict more than what's necessary? And so just again, a large, overwhelming restrictive diet sometimes can seem daunting. And it's really hard for a lot of people wanting to overcome and just even kind of comply to that. You know, they got families and social things they wanna do, and that can really, really challenge them. Now, I'm not saying that they shouldn't make those changes if they feel better doing it, but testing is, in my opinion, the best option if you're hitting a roadblock. And there's a lot of different testing options out there. I know there's some popular tests like the Alcat test. There's IgG, IgM testing. There's testing with the food, you know, just straight up testing with the food cooked. There's a lot of different methods. There's a lot of different kind of lab testing strategies. What have you found, looking at a number of them, what have you found to be in a sense the most effective? We use a technology called lymphocyte response, LRA, lymphocyte response assay. And what it measures, it does a few different things. Number one, it measures IgG, IgA, IgM, something called an immune complex and something called a T -cell response. But it also, it's a live analysis. So you're actually watching the lymphocyte respond in real time. So you can see a reaction as it's occurring. And so as you subject the cells to different types of food reagents, you get a much more accurate representation of what a person is going to react to. There's some flaws with some of the antibody tests because antibodies, you can make an antibody to a food or to an external substance and it can be a protective antibody and not necessarily a damaging antibody. And so a lot of the IgG tests come back and it's not that they can't be accurate or helpful. It's that they can give you an overwhelming list of food reactions. So like, you know, the average person that I see that runs an LRA, they may have 10 to 15 reactions, you know, to foods. IgG testing, you'll get like 50, 60 reactions on a person. And so now, again, it goes back into over -restriction because these IgG tests do not differentiate between friendly or damaging antibodies. And that's where, again, diet restriction is already hard. Let's make it less hard, but let's do let's make it more accurate for the patient to, you know, to embark on diet change without feeling so overwhelmed that it seems impossible. Yeah, yes, that's really good. So LRA, lymphocyte reaction, response assay, response assay. Yep. So really good, really good information there. Now, how about home testing? People will do things like muscle testing, pulse testing, things like that. Have you seen, you know, have you seen any sort of positive, positive results with that? I mean, I don't do muscle testing, I trained in it. I actually trained with the creator of muscle testing years ago, and what I found was it's subjective testing and it's not that it can't be helpful. There are a lot of people that have been helped by muscle testing, but what I find is it changes too radically quick. And so what you get is you get, OK, this week you're reactive to this, next week you're reactive to that, and it's just a lot of bouncing around without a consistency and a reliability. The immune system has a six month life cycle. This is another reason why I like lymphocyte response. It's because when we test someone, we see a reaction, we know that reaction is going to be there as long as the life of that lymphocyte is there. So, you know, generally speaking, when we take somebody on a restrictive diet based on their test results, it's not a permanent restriction. It's a six to eight month restriction because we know we're going to recycle the immune system in that process. On the other side of recycling the immune system, the immune system, when those new cells come along, they're less angry. Remember what autoimmune disease is. It's like post -traumatic stress of the immune system. Your immune system is attacking food. It's attacking the environment. It's attacking you and it's very angry and it's very prone and quick to reaction. So we have to calm that down. Right. And that first generation of cells, if we can calm that down, then the next daughter cells that come along that next generation will be a lot less aggressive. And this is what I mean earlier by we restrict to expand. So we restrict initially and then we're able to come back a lot of times after that initial restriction and it re -expand their diet because their immune systems are more tolerable to things. The immune system shouldn't overreact to food like that. Our immune systems are designed to handle most things, but we're subjected to so many dangerous chemicals and toxins, preservatives, pesticides and drugs too. So many people rely on medicines to treat their symptoms and don't realize that drugs damage the immune system and damage the GI tract. So you end up with basically a collection of allergies and sensitivities over time that now you now the act of eating becomes an act of war. And so your immune system is always on high alert. So, again, I know that wasn't exactly your question. You were asking about muscle testing and some of these other things. I just don't rely on those because my opinion of those is that they're just too subjective to base major decisions on for long periods of time. And that type of data changes too radically. It's too different. Even when I trained in applied kinesiology, my instructor, I would watch him get different results in the same person within a 10 minute time frame. And that like to me, that was just not objectively acceptable as a means to use clinically and feel comfortable about the accuracy. Yeah, that makes sense. And typically by the time people are getting to somebody like you, they've tried a lot of these different elimination diets, a lot of different strategies to kind of try to figure out and they've eliminated a lot of things and they've tried a whole bunch of different supplements and then they're like, I can't figure this out. So they go in for you and they really need that objective testing. Right. So they know exactly what to do. That's it. That's it. Objectivity is people never come to me first. They always come to me like six. Right. Yeah, yeah, for sure. And so you're saying, OK, so the immune system has that six to eight month life cycle. So when somebody comes in, they get tested, you know, 10 foods or whatever it is, blueberries are on there. They come off these foods for for six, eight months. How do you how do you go about the testing? Yeah. So we make a recommendation at least six months. And then it's based on follow up, depending on, you know, as they come back in and we're following up and we're seeing how they're progressing along, if they're if they're doing fantastically well and they're ready to reintroduce some foods, we'll retest those foods and make sure they're not still reacting to those foods because these are delayed hypersensitivity reactions. Remember, the window is three hours to three weeks and the symptoms are not always super aggressive. So I don't want them to I don't want to just tell them, hey, yeah, go ahead and reintroduce it and hope for the best. Again, objectivity is the rule of thumb. So we retest them for the foods they'd like to reintroduce back into their diets. And if they're no longer reacting, then, you know, they get they get the green light. Yeah, for sure. That makes sense. Now, what a lot of people are wondering, why does somebody develop a reaction to a blueberry? Right. Or to beef. But then, you know, not to let's say, you know, on the test, it doesn't show up that they're testing to rice or to corn or something along those lines. You know, everybody's unique and different, and a lot of times what what we do sometimes correlate is. When their guts when their guts are leaking, they're reacting predominantly to the staple foods of choice that they have. Right. So if they're, you know, if they're a beef junkie, you know, and all they eat is or a lot of what they eat is beef or broccoli or, you know, whatever it might be, we oftentimes will see those reactions showing up again. It's because their guts are leaking. Remember, behind the gut, you have the largest conglomeration of immune tissue that exists inside your entire body. It's called the gult, the gastro -associated lymphoid tissue. So if your gut's leaking, then those proteins from those foods are just basically bombarding your gut and not being properly checked by the barrier of the gut. There's four barriers in your gut that act like gates. Right. So it's like, hey, the first gate. Yeah, you look good. Come on in. The second gate. Yeah, you look good. Keep coming. Until they access the bloodstream. But when there's a leaky gut, those gate guards are on vacation. They're gone. And so now those foods are just bombarding the immune system and the immune system's like, how did these guys get here? They don't belong in this party. They haven't been checked and they haven't been appropriately tagged. We have to react against everything. And so whatever's coming through the pipeline is what we're going to see a lot of reactions to typically. Yeah, it makes a lot of sense. So typically it's what you're eating a lot of. Like in Ginger's case, she was doing a blueberry smoothie every morning. She had a leaky gut. She already had an immune system that was on overdrive that was that had PTSD, like you were talking about, where she had juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. So it was going crazy and she's eating blueberries every day. So it's no wonder why it would react to the blueberries. Yeah. And then add to that, she was on methotrexate, which is a drug that destroys the lining of the GI tract. So she had no hope for healing a leaky gut, even with diet change, as long as she was dependent on that drug. And a lot of people don't realize this, but simple medicines like ibuprofen, right? Antibiotics, aspirin, over -the -counter Advil, Tylenol, these are drugs that when you rely on them on a consistent, I'm not saying if you took it once, but if you rely on these things day in and day out, they slowly erode the mucosal barrier in your GI tract. So they remove one of the gates, right? And then they make it easier for other things to go wrong. So you have to really look at at your pharmaceutical closet as well. And this is where a lot of people are trapped because they got, you know, medicine after medicine. They got an initial medicine to treat their symptoms, whether it's pain or whatever it might be. And then the drug caused damage in another way. That's what we call risk benefit. There's a there's a benefit to the drug suppressing symptoms, but there's a risk of what the drug is going to do the body over time. And now the doctor is treating the symptoms, the drug caused with a new drug. Right. And so this this kind of getting trapped in that polypharmacy is what allows a lot of people to really progressively get worse. And they think they're doing the right thing. Their doctor prescribed these things. It must be the right thing to do when in reality it's a it's a slow trap. It's a trick. I always look at pharmaceuticals as as pseudo compassionate, right? Because it's false compassion. Why? Because a doctor that gives you a drug to try to make you feel better, there's when when they're doing it without telling you why your symptoms exist, there's no compassion there. They're actually setting you up for failure. It's it's like your kids. If you just told your kids what to do all the time, but never taught them or educated them and kind of help them navigate how to make good decisions, then they would go out into the world and they would be you know, they would rely on you for the rest of their lives. Right. They wouldn't be able to spread their wings and fly. And this is what happens in medicine all the time. Doctors make you dependent on symptomatic resolution through chemistry. And unfortunately, the side effects of that leads to more of that. And people don't even realize that that's actually some of the biggest inducers of autoimmune disease are drugs that destroy the gut. Yeah, absolutely. And many of the symptoms that people are experiencing that are driven by food sensitivities, they're taking medications for those headaches, migraines, acid reflux, things like that. And I know a big a big class class of drugs that's commonly used are Harper medications, and that can actually, you know, very much induce food sensitivities and leaky gut as well. Yeah, I mean, absolutely. And, you know, beyond even that, you get the drug induced nutritional deficiencies, you know, that that happened. And so now the medicine is treating the symptom, but the drug is causing vitamin and mineral deficiencies that lead to the same symptom that the medicine is treating. And so now the patient's like, well, the medicine quit working, give me a new medicine. And, you know, again, it just stacks and layers and now they're malnourished, their guts are destroyed, and they can't heal because your body requires vitamins and minerals to heal. Like those are the building blocks for repair. And if you're if you're causing deficit of those things through, you know, through polypharmacy, then good luck. It's just not going to happen very effectively. Yeah, for sure. And the autoimmunity that somebody may be experiencing the chronic inflammation is really the body doing the best it can to keep you alive right now, because it's seeing all these chemicals, bacteria, bacterial end products, all these inflammatory agents that it sees as a risk for, in a sense, a quick death. Right. Something some sort of infection that could get into your nervous system, cause meningitis, cause encephalitis or pneumonia. And so it's trying to drive up overall immune activity so you don't get this, you know, life threatening infection. In the meantime, you're living for 10, 15, 20, 30 years with incredible joint pain from, you know, rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis or, you know, whatever it is, you know, Hashimoto's thyroiditis. And so your immune system is doing the best it can to keep you alive. Right. And what we've got to do is kind of teach the immune system that, hey, you're not in a life threatening situation by healing and sealing the gut, addressing those nutrient deficiencies, right. Addressing all of those types of things. Now, when it came to somebody like Ginger, for example, you talked about earlier, you started obviously you did this test, you found food sensitivities, right. You remove those. And so you kind of customized diet there. Now, what were the other things that you were doing to help her heal? So she was also gluten sensitive. Yeah. You know, one of her other foods that she was eating a lot of was rice. So if you want to get into this, but rice by law, by FDA definition is labeled can be labeled as gluten free, although technically rice has a form of gluten in it called Orsonin, which in my experience does plenty of damage to people who have gluten issues. So a lot of people that go gluten free, but they include rice as part of their staple replacement, don't do well. As a matter of fact, there are five year follow up studies that show that 92 percent of people following a traditional gluten free diet fail to achieve the inflammatory remission in their GI tracts. And these are studies done on celiac patients. And when you when you remove the rice and the corn and the other grains, guess what happens? They achieve the remission. And there's there are a number of research studies that show this. I've seen this for 22 years in my clinic. So in her case, rice was one of the things she was already on a gluten free diet traditionally, but she hadn't omitted the rice. And so we also did that. She also had several vitamin and mineral deficiencies. We test for deficiencies. And so those were things that we supplemented and made sure that she was eating the proper foods that contain the nutrients that she was lacking. And in her case, she was you know, she was she had a permanent port embedded in her arm because she was in and out of the hospital so often for pain management treatment. Within six months, that port came out that she was supposed to be dead within six months. That port came out. And then within another six months, she was in total remission. And this is one of my first patients in private practice. So she's gone on. She's graduated college. She's out in the world, you know, doing great things and having a family and everything else. So, you know, autoimmune disease, it's a scary thing. You know, it's you know, if we look at autoimmune disease, 140 of them and, you know, most doctors will tell you, you know, because we separate them out, that autoimmune disease is doesn't have all that great of a mortality risk. But in fact, autoimmune disease, number one cause of death. If you add up all the autoimmune diseases and you compare that to cancer and heart disease, you're going to see a lot more people dying of combination autoimmune disease. Unlike you know, unlike cancer and heart disease, they clump all the cancers together. They clump all the heart diseases together. But they don't do that with autoimmune disease. So it's like the redheaded stepchild of the industry, right? It doesn't get the attention that it deserves.
A highlight from The God Of Answers (Holly Furtick)
"Hey, this is Steven Furtick. I'm the pastor of Elevation Church, and this is our podcast. I wanted to thank you for joining us today. Hope this inspires you. Hope it builds your faith. Hope it gives you perspective to see God is moving in your life. Enjoy the message. Earlier this fall, we had our annual ladies event here at Elevation. It's called Reflect. A lot of the ladies were here from all of our campuses. We joined together and online, and it was incredible. I got to share a word with the ladies of our church that really ministered, and as Steven and I were talking, we decided that I needed to share from that same passage with you today. Are you ready for the word? All right, I am so excited. God really spoke to me through this passage, and I'm really excited to share it with you today. Would you turn in your Bibles to Acts chapter one, and we're gonna jump right in with the first verse. It says this. In my first book, I told you, Theophilus, about everything Jesus began to do and teach until the day he was taken up to heaven after giving his chosen apostles further instructions through the Holy Spirit. During the 40 days after he suffered and died, he appeared to the apostles from time to time, and he proved to them in many ways that he was actually alive, and he talked to them about the kingdom of God. Once, when he was eating with them, he commanded them, do not leave Jerusalem until the Father sends you the gift he promised. As I told you before, John baptized with water, but in just a few days, you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit. So when the apostles were with Jesus, they kept asking him, Lord, has the time come for you to free Israel and restore our kingdom? And he replied, the Father alone has the authority to set those dates and times, and they are not for you to know, but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. After saying this, he was taken up into a cloud while they were watching, and they could no longer see him. As they strained to see him rising into heaven, two white -robed men suddenly stood among them. Men of Galilee, they said, why are you standing here staring into heaven? Jesus has been taken from you into heaven, but someday he will return from heaven in the same way you saw him go. Then the apostles returned to Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives, a distance of half a mile. When they arrived, they went to the upstairs room of the house where they were staying. Let's pray one more time, Lord, would you bless this word today? Would you speak through me now? We want to hear from you, in Jesus' name we pray, amen.

Inflammation is literally the root cause of all the different degenerative chronic health conditions, things like Alzheimer's, heart disease, Parkinson's disease, cancer, diabetes. These are all characterized by chronic inflammation. So I went ahead and I interviewed some of the top experts in the world when it comes to and inflammation actually created a summit, it was called the Chronic Inflammation Summit. We hosted it in May of 2021. You may have listened, you may not have, but I wanted to share some of my favorite interviews on this podcast, and this is one of them. You guys are going to get so much value out of this podcast, and if you know anybody that's struggling with any sort of chronic health conditions, maybe they have pain in their diabetes, brain issues, please share this podcast with them. It can literally change and save their lives, and if you haven't already, take a moment and leave us a five star review. Your reviews help us reach more people and impact more lives. Thanks so much for doing that, and let's go into the show. Well, hey everybody, welcome back to the Chronic Inflammation Summit. I'm your host, Dr. David Jockers, and today we're going to be talking about parasites and gut infections, how they provoke inflammation, and natural strategies you can take to help reduce your microbial load, to help heal your microbiome, and reduce inflammation in your body, and really thrive in life. And so I've got a great guest, Dr. Todd Watts, he's affectionately called the Parasite Man, and he runs Total Body Wellness Clinic up in Boise, Idaho, and you may also be familiar with his supplement companies, Microbe Formulas, as well as Cell Core Biosciences. Not only does he help develop supplements, but on top of that, he also educates doctors, lay people, different practitioners of all types on how they can help their clients, particularly clients with chronic inflammation and chronic, just chronically debilitating cases get well. He's well known, people travel to his clinic from literally all over the world. He also works with people over Zoom as well. So Dr. Todd, welcome to the summit. Thanks for having me on, Dr. Jockers. Absolutely. Well, you know, we got to start obviously by talking about parasites. And so really talking about what they are, your experience with them, and what kind of symptoms that somebody might experience if they have parasites. So it's interesting in my journey of my own health and wellness, and in many of my clients and patients, how much of a part this became of it, where in the beginning, I didn't know really anything about parasites, it was more working with Lyme disease and the co -infections and Epstein -Barr and many of the more commonly known things. So in this evolution of things, parasites came up with a doctor that I had worked with and he said, hey, look, your headaches and some of the other seasonal allergies and things that are going on, these are coming from a threadworm, a specific type of parasite. So this is what got me on to learning all about parasites and diving into the physiology within the body, what it's doing and what's happening.
A highlight from Zechariah Evangelism
"Good morning. Our third Sunday sermon series through Zechariah is coming to a close here. I'm not sure if we'll have another message after this one. Usually, after I get to the end of a book, we'll go back and do a review message, which was last month, and then a message relating, whatever the book was, to evangelism. So that's today. Zechariah evangelism. And so let's pray that God will bless us today. Lord God, we thank you that all of your Word is an evangelistic tool, for faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. And we know that we see scriptures that we can identify better as evangelistic, but we know that all of your Word is truth, and truth convicts of sin, and conviction of sin then can lead to repentance. And so we pray, Lord, that you would make us wise evangelists. And so help us in that today. We ask it for Jesus' sake. Amen. The book of Zechariah is a revelation or a revealing of Jesus the Messiah. As such, it is a good resource for evangelism. Today we utilize Zechariah for evangelism in the form of a letter to an unbelieving friend. So I hadn't done this before, so it may seem a little bit strange. It's going to seem a little strange to me. But I have always found that evangelism encourages the saints to say, well, I don't need to come to faith in Christ, but I love hearing, well, it's kind of like the hymn, isn't it? I love to tell the story. I love to hear the story of unseen things above. And so if it just falls flat, then I know you all will still love me. And you'll just say, don't do that again. That was silly. Just send your letter to your friend and preach us a regular message, OK, if it doesn't work out. But I think it's going to encourage you. OK. Kids speak. Kids, what book are we looking at today? Zechariah. What are we going to do with Zechariah today? We're going to use it to write a letter to a friend telling them how important it is to trust Jesus. So I sent you an email with this without anything but the letter. So if you actually wanted to use it and instead of friend put somebody's name, you could do that. Dear friend, would you allow me to share some observations about a certain book in the Bible? I have found this book particularly beneficial, and I believe you may benefit from its content as well. It's the book of Zechariah, the second to the last book in our English Old Testament. God showed Zechariah some strange things, and probably many today would think he wasn't quite in his right mind when he saw them. But all his visions had their basis in what Moses and the preceding prophets had been shown. First, though, a little historical setting for the book. It was written when the Jews came back from captivity in Babylon. God had allowed his own people to be defeated by Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon. That was because they had done just about everything he had told them not to do and had stopped doing the things they were supposed to do. As Zechariah reminded his audience, the Lord of Heaven's assembly said, exercise true judgment and show brotherhood and compassion to each other. You must not oppress the widow, the orphan, the resident foreigner, or the poor, nor should anyone secretly plot evil against his fellow citizen. But they refused to pay attention, turning away stubbornly and stopping their ears so they could not hear. Indeed, they made their hearts as hard as diamond so that they could not obey the Torah and the other words the Lord of Heaven's assembly had sent by his spirit through the former prophets. Therefore, the Lord of Heaven's assembly has poured out to great wrath. You can see that God had given them very sensible directions for treating each other right. Who would not agree that these rules were fair and just? Yet they had turned a deaf ear mistreating one another. And even though we agree that compassion and helping the disadvantaged are right, would it take much digging to where we too have turned a deaf ear to divine instructions? Kids speak. Kids, God gives us the rules for how to treat each other right. But have we broken those rules? Yeah. Do we need God to forgive us? Zechariah had opened his message with a similar reminder. He didn't place the responsibility in the past. Rather, he laid the impetus to respond on his own generation. Therefore, say to the people, the Lord of Heaven's assembly says, turn to me, says the Lord of Heaven's armies, and I will turn to you, says the Lord of Heaven's armies. Do not be like your ancestors, to whom the former prophets called out, saying, this is what the Lord of Heaven's assembly has said, turn now from your evil wickedness. But they would by no means obey me, says the Lord. God told the people to turn to him, even though it appeared that they had already started obeying God again, since they had made the dangerous journey from Babylon to rebuild a burned -down Jerusalem, the walls of which had been completely leveled, exposing them to dangerous enemies. But God saw that their hearts were still not turned to him. Even though they were facing many difficult and discouraging circumstances, God knew that no obstacle could be greater than having their attention divided from him. Kid Speed, if we obey some things, God says, does that mean we obey everything he says? No. All of us probably could say we obey some things. He told them if they turned to him, he would turn to them. Well, that's certainly a square deal. Before God gave them into Babylon's hands, he had spent generations trying to turn them from their misdeeds. Now he was patiently starting over with them again. And how did they respond? Zechariah 1 .6, and they turned and said, the Lord of Heaven's assembly planned to do with us according to our ways, yes, according to our deeds, so he has dealt with us. God told them to turn, and they turned. Zechariah's audience responded favorably to his message of repentance, at least at first. They took responsibility for their waywardness, and they accepted God's gracious invitation to fellowship, that he would turn to them as well. Now they were ready to hear how God would bring them a final deliverance from all danger. It would come through a single man. Kids speak. Kids, the people Zechariah was talking to knew that they hadn't done what God said, so they turned back to him. Is that what we should do, too? Come on, nod your head with me. They were rebuilding Solomon's temple, but Zechariah had a message of another temple that would have to be built if they were going to be finally saved, Zechariah 6 .12. This is what the Lord of Heaven's assembly says, here is the man whose name is the sprig. He will branch out from where he is and will rebuild the temple of the Lord. They were rebuilding the temple, so it must have been a surprise to hear about someone else who needed to come and build another new one. Ezra and Zerubbabel were leading the present rebuilding effort. Who was this other man in such a strange name, the sprig? But Zechariah and his colleagues had already been told about the sprig. They had already been told that the sprig had something to do with the priesthood. God had spoken to their own high priest, Joshua, not the Joshua of the book of Joshua, Zechariah 3 .8. Listen, high priest Joshua, you and those companions of yours who sit with you, for these men are a sign that I am presenting my servant the sprig. The very fact that God's people needed a new high priest every time the last one died showed that a final permanent priest was needed. The fact that they had a day of atonement every year showed that their sins were not being removed permanently. They needed a once for all payment for sin. That was apparently going to be the work of the sprig. And why call the sprig? Simply because he would start fresh. He wouldn't build onto the existing structure of the Levitical priesthood, and that is exactly what has come about. Jesus came from the tribe of Judah, not Levi. Yet he acted as a priest, offering himself as a sacrifice for sins. Kids, one of the names for Jesus in Zechariah is sprig. What's a sprig? Well, it's a plant when it first starts growing. Why was Jesus called sprig? Because he had to do everything over right from the start. We had messed everything up, so he had to start all over like a little sprig. God then immediately added a new name to Christ the sprig, calling him a stone. For he grew from his small beginning to become the sacrifice for sin, both permanent and solid qualities a stone represents. Zechariah 3 .9. Look, the stone that I put in place in Joshua's presence, on that one stone are seven eyes. And look, I will do the engraving myself, declares the Lord of Heaven's assembly. And I will remove the perversity of that land in a single day. There's one of the strange symbols of Zechariah, a stone with seven eyes. Of course, it's figurative. The mental image of a seven -eyed stone probably confuses us at first, but the stone is made less mysterious in light of the engraving, an engraved stone. The eyes most simply symbolize sight. Really the most elusive aspect of the image is the seven. That one takes a little bit of biblical familiarity. We find by induction, looking at places where seven occurs, that seven connotes completeness. So seven eyes indicate complete sight. The stone then is a figurative way to tell us that the Messiah would be omniscient. To see everything is to know everything. In other words, the Messiah would be God. Kids speak. Kids, another name for Jesus in Zechariah is the stone. Why is he a stone? Because he stays the same, like a rock, when he says he will save us. That word is as firm as a rock. Well, what about the engraving on the stone? Well, in light of the prompt removal of the land's perversity, the engraving is most likely the engraving of the land's perversity into the stone. It's an engraving God does himself. And isn't this what God the Father did when Jesus was on the cross, engrave his people's sins into him? Kids speak. Zechariah calls Jesus a rock that God carves on. Well, what did God carve into Jesus? Our sins. When our sins were carved into Jesus, did that take the sins away from us? Yep, carved onto him. That's how it works. This sprig who became the stone was God's way of explaining to Joshua the high priest what had just happened to him. So rewind to the beginning of the chapter, Zechariah 3, 1 through 4, and he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the messenger of the Lord, and Satan was standing on his right to accuse him. But the Lord said to Satan, the Lord rebukes you, oh Satan, the Lord who has chosen Jerusalem rebukes you. Is this not a stick snatched from the fire? And Joshua was clothed in filthy garments and was standing before the messenger. And he answered and said to the one standing before him, saying, remove the filthy garments from him. And he said to him, see, I have taken away your guilt from you and will clothe you with rich garments. The high priest, the man in Israel who presided over the sacrifices for removing sin, he himself stood unclean before God. Satan was there accusing him. But God did not argue the basic fact of Joshua's defilement. No, in fact, God's rebuke of Satan got right to the matter of Joshua's deficiency. He called Joshua a stick snatched from the fire. Joshua was like a stick that was going to burn, but God had pulled him out of the fire. Kids, God said that Joshua the high priest was like a stick that was about to burn, but God pulled it out of the fire. Is that what God does when Jesus saves us? Pulls us out of hell? Yeah. We were headed right for hell. So, wow, we should really thank Jesus, shouldn't we? Ah, dear friend, I can tell you that describes me as well. I was a stick ready to burn, already as good as it ignited. Yes, that has me listening to God's words as closely as I'm sure Joshua was. Remove his filthy garments. Men on earth couldn't see the dirty clothing, but there in heaven we see the reality. Joshua already believed that he needed spiritual cleansing, otherwise he would not have made the annual sacrifice on the Day of Atonement for his own sins. But now he got to see how his defilement looked in God's presence. Satan didn't even have to lie, though he's good at it. A defiled Joshua was his exhibit A, and he needed no further proof. Friend, if the highest religious official amongst God's people was tarnished by sin, everyone else on earth was as well. The high priest needed the engraved stone to be engraved with his own sins. That's why God showed Joshua that vision, so that Israel's high priest could model for the nation their need to hope in God's final high priest. I have that same hope. I have trusted in Jesus of Nazareth as the sacrifice that covers my sin, dear friend. Kids, if Satan came before God and said, look at Pastor Cain, he's a dirty sinner, how can he be a Christian? What would God say? He would say, but I cleaned Pastor Cain up by what Jesus did on the cross. You can say the same thing for you, right? You may have noticed that I am referring to Jesus as both the high priest and the sacrifice. That is correct. He is both. If our sins were engraved into him, that makes him the sacrifice. But he was the one who offered himself up to be sacrificed. He is also the priest. In fact, Jesus fulfilled virtually every aspect of the temple, the furniture, its procedures, and the priests processing them. He puts the fill in fulfillment. I have been to your ear a long time. Thank you for your patience. I will bring this to an end. Zechariah 12, 10. And I will pour upon the house of David and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem the spirit of grace and of prayer, then they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn over him. Jesus was a Jew, and he came to his countrymen first. They passed him by. But one day God promises that they will recognize him. Zechariah 13, 1. On that day, a well will be opened for the house of David and for the inhabitants of Jerusalem to cleanse them from sin and from impurity. And they will recognize their Messiah. They will recognize what he did for them. Kids speak. Another thing Zechariah says Jesus is like is a well. Why is that? Well, because you can wash with water from a well just like you can have your sins washed away by Jesus' blood. Until then, that same well is open to all men. Zechariah 2, 11. Many nations will join themselves to the Lord on the day of salvation, and they will also be my people. And here we are. Christ's saving message reaches more and more people groups year by year. But the end gathering will not last indefinitely. Christ will return to finalize his work on earth. Zechariah 14, 4. On that day, his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives. That was the location from which he left the earth in the sight of his apostles ascending into heaven. That is where he has an appointment to return. Kids, where is Jesus right now? Heaven. Will he always stay there? No. He's coming back here to be king of everybody in the world. Oh, that'll be a great day, won't it? Dear friend, there is a sacrifice that washes away our sins and renews us. Do we need cleansing and new life? Zechariah, like the rest of scriptures, tells us that if we have dishonored God and broken his commandments, we need Jesus' purifying sacrifice. I pray to God that you will join me as one who confesses Christ as Lord and Savior. For the walking wounded, as 1 Thessalonians 5, 14 says, uphold the strengthless. It's easy to forget that when we first came to God, we were complete spiritual invalids. I think most of us continue to think, hmm, I don't think I've changed much since then, but we're supposed to mature. All scripture is profitable for teaching, for conviction. The gospel is good news. May fear not cause me to hesitate in telling it as though it were basically bad news. It does contain bad news, but the gospel is basically good news. If you just tell good news without contexting it with the bad news, unless the person already gives you that and says, oh, I'm a defiled sinner. What can I do? Well, of course, you can just march right into, here's the means of cleansing. But if not, you need to let them know that, yes, we are sinners headed for hell. But the gospel is basically good news, which is how we should present it. All scripture is profitable for correction. I will remember that the good news is what properly contexts the bad news of our sinfulness, our enmity with God, and our coming judgment. God justly put all these aside in the cross. And all scripture is profitable for teaching, conviction, correction, for schooling in righteousness. Nothing wrong with asking God to just drop witnessing opportunities into our lap rather than worrying about segues. How do I get from a regular conversation into a gospel conversation? And, of course, we want to be able to do segues, too. But in the meantime, it's a good thing to ask every day who knows who I'll meet today. Maybe the door will just swing wide open, and I need to be ready to walk in. Wrap up, Colossians 4, 5, and 6. You can see it on the left side there. Walk in wisdom toward those on the outside, redeeming the time. Let your speech be always with grace, having been seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one. And then breaking it down phrase by phrase, walk in wisdom toward those on the outside. God give me a special wisdom like a person on a mission. Redeeming the time, God give me sufficient urgency. Let your speech be always with grace. God give me words that make good transitions to the gospel. Having been seasoned with salt, God give me a bright countenance and inviting words that you may know how you ought to answer each one. God give me increasing sensitivity to see particular burdens in the lives of others that I may point them to the burden -bearer. Amen. Let's pray. Lord God, thank you for your words. We pray, Lord, that you will grant a day of revival when the subject of God and of being right with God is simply part of the national conversation. And we know that you have done this before in days of revival, that people simply become curious again. And you pique their curiosity and we can simply walk right into witnessing situations. But until then, Lord, we pray that we would remember Colossians 4, 5, and 6, that we would walk in wisdom towards them, that we would seek out opportunities, that we would always have gracious speech, and that we would season it with salt and make it attractive. And that you might help us better and better to recognize needs in people's lives that will present the gospel's introduction. Lord, bless these, your people, all your people here on earth, worshiping you today. In Jesus' name, amen.

I mean, I talked about it in the intro, but I love this book, Beyond Longevity, phenomenal book and anybody that's interested in aging and longevity. This is the go to books, really the best book that I've read on that topic. And so just really appreciate your wealth of knowledge and really appreciate your overall perspective on this. And I'm excited to really, really dive into some of these topics that you discussed in the book and really starting with this idea of what is longevity, right? Because that's kind of something that most people think they know, right? But it's a little deeper than what most people really understand. Yeah, well, I appreciate that. The kind where it's really from all the work that you do, it means a lot. So thank you for that. And yeah, it's interesting. We're in such an interesting time when it comes to longevity because we have this new medicine that's coming online with stem cells and biologics, which is essentially dipping back into our own innate intelligence. So that's an interesting thing to explore. And then we have the other side of the coin, which is all this technology, which is interesting and also potentially dangerous and very kind of weird in another way. We can go down some really dark rabbit holes in that realm, and we kind of are in some ways. So we're at a very interesting nexus. I think how we think about aging and how we think about longevity is really, really important. There's historical context for aging and for longevity and for life itself as a cycle. So it's really important to, I think, really explore these things from a foundational principle. Because if we lose that, then we're going to start veering off into these random territories that are going to get us in trouble. And so for me, when I wrote the book, it's like longevity is an important thing. We want elders. We want really experienced people to guide our younger generations. There's a lot of benefits to increasing longevity on the planet. But then it's like, what is longevity? What is aging? How do we think about aging? It's a very deep topic. And I interviewed you for my film series, The Human Longevity Project. And I remember we interviewed 80, 90 health experts. You were one of them. And I asked this question to many of them, I said, what is aging? And not a single person gave me the same answer. And these are very, very intelligent people who do a lot of work in a lot of different realms in the health sciences. And so that's interesting. It's interesting the fact that we don't have a definition of biological aging. So I actually had to sit and think about that for what that is. And it's really a process. So a lot of the times when we're thinking about aging and anti -aging and longevity, what most people are actually talking about are the effects of, quote unquote, aging, the damage that accumulates over time as a result of aging. We still don't really know what aging is, what causes this process in an organism, be it salamander, a a whale, a tiger, or a human, right? But it's an innate process. So it's built into all these organisms, right? And so there's interesting things when it comes to aging itself. And so without going too deep into that rabbit hole, because we can get lost in that, it's important to recognize that damage is one thing, and aging is another thing. And I think we can slow the rate of aging. In fact, I'm quite confident we can do that. I'm not so confident that we can stop aging altogether. And I'm absolutely convinced that we can't anti -age, right? We can't go backwards. Now, look, we use these terms colloquially, right? You probably use it, I use it, right? And it's okay. But I think what I want to affect here is that the term anti -aging is really damage reversal, right? The ability to sort of turn back the clock from a damage perspective on a cellular level or an organ level. So in a sense, it's like anti -aging, but really, it's just cleaning up some damage. And we're utilizing the repair mechanisms that are built within us. But that's the important distinction is, yes, we can turn on repair. Yes, we can clean up damage. And no, we can't undo whatever aging is and whatever is actually guiding that process. Again, we don't know. Whatever is doing that, I'm confident that we sure as heck can't figure out how to undo that yet. Like that would be like Benjamin Button style, like going backwards and we start getting younger and, you know, in 10 years, I'm now 20 again. Like that is just not going to happen, right? So just want to like lay that framework down because I think it's really important as we have these discussions about longevity, what it is we're really talking about. And I think it is slowing the rate at which one ages and or cleaning up damage that has already accumulated. And we can do that to an extent because we have the mechanisms built within our biology. We have that magic within us. That's what's cool. Yeah, that's really good. I mean, we know that damage is going to happen. It happens to all of us. In fact, actually, it's to some degree, it's necessary. You know, it's a hormetic stressor that creates adaptation and creates a level of resilience with our body. So we know the damage is going to occur. We can't get around that. So then, you know, the other factor is how well we respond and recover. So I've heard the term, you know, healthy aging is really successful adaptations to the stressors that we're under and how successfully we're adapting. Absolutely. And it's a balance, right? Like if we lose this ability to destroy cells to, in other words, create death on a micro level, then we have cancer, right? So so we actually want cells to die. We need cells to die. We need mitochondrion to die, right? And that's a really critical aspect. In fact, there's a lot of longevity researchers that are in the mitochondrial sciences that are in the cancer sciences that are looking at these sort of rates of how much apoptosis do we want? How much autophagy do we want, right? If we have too much of something, it's bad. If we have too much of another thing, it's also bad. So there's a there's a dynamic balance that is always occurring inside the body. And this becomes the art form, if you will, of how do we do this throughout our lives, knowing that this is going to happen. We want it to happen. We want to actually encourage it to happen. And a lot of the things that we look at in the health world, right, when it comes to, again, exercise, sunlight, fasting, certain foods, these are all hormetic stressors, right? In other words, they are damage causing. They are they're innately creating a pressure on the system, right? Some sort of selective pressure, adaptive pressure that the that our organism has the amazing ability to both sense and then and then adapt and modify in order to meet that stressor, right? So that's what's really, really amazing about our human organism. And yet we push it too hard. Then it gets out of this hormetic zone and it gets into the straight damage, right? And yet again, just like if I were, well, actually, it was at the gym a few months ago and sliced my finger up and had to go get stitches and all that, right? And it was like, it looked like it went through a meat grinder. I mean, the nail was hanging off and I'm like, Oh my God. And yet the doc comes in there, throws in like four stitches through the nail bed and all this, but my finger miraculously heals, right? And right now there's a lot of scar tissue in there. So there's, there's some reorganization of the tissue itself, but over time, it's going to go back to a normal finger, like pretty much all the way, right? Like that's remarkable. So we have this intelligence within us. So no matter how much damage we cause, we can almost recover from anything. Like that's, what's really remarkable. And the younger that we are, because there's something important about youth itself, right? The amount of STEM cells we have, the, the, all the growth factors, all the magic that is within a young life form, there's vitality in there. Um, that does wane over time, right? That guy is part of the aging process, but when we sort of make mistakes early in life, we can still come back from them, right? So this is really remarkable. And that's, what's worth acknowledging here is that there's, it's really important to remember that there's an innate intelligence. There's a built in magic to us, right? And to honor that, to respect it and not sort of try to play God in every turn, because it gets us into trouble, right? To really trust the inbuilt humanity is really, really important in this process.

Today I'm doing a solo Q &A. You guys know that oftentimes I do these Q &As with one of my health coaches. Today I'm doing it solo and I'm going to be covering some really good topics, really good questions that you guys asked. We're going to talk about stevia and infertility. We're going to talk about intermittent fasting, some of the best intermittent fasting strategies, how to deal with constipation. We're going to go through endometriosis and what some of the best strategies are for endometriosis. We're going to talk also about osteoporosis and what to do for bone loss and osteoporosis. So I'm going to jump right in and I've got a great question here from Jim on our YouTube channel. And also if you guys want to ask a question or want to see where I'm answering questions, be sure to subscribe and follow me on YouTube, on Instagram, on Facebook. Those would be the best ways. Dr. Jockers, Dr. David Jockers, look me up on those channels and you can ask questions. You can also email me at info at drjockers .com as well with your question that you want to get on one of these Q &A podcasts. So go into Jim. He says, I'm on a keto diet. My bowel movements are sporadic. There's no timing to it. Some days I go a lot and some days barely at all. If keto is natural, why would you need to do special things to help you have bowel movements? This is a really good question. And so whenever you start on any sort of diet change, there can be changes with your microbiome. Many of us have experienced this, whether it means more bowel frequency or less bowel frequency. So a diet change can certainly make a difference. Also, there's a lot of people that follow a keto diet, but they eat a lot of processed foods. There's a lot of things out there that are highly processed, but they are quote unquote keto. So that may be an issue here. I'm not sure, but that certainly could be an issue. Also a big thing with a keto diet is when you are going on a very low carb diet, your insulin levels drop. And that's important because we know insulin is a fat storage hormone. As long as insulin is elevated, we can't burn fat for fuel and we can't produce ketones. We also end up with blood sugar imbalances with more fat storage and more inflammation. So one of the benefits of a keto diet is it brings insulin down. Now when insulin goes down, insulin, not only does it do the things I just talked about, getting sugar into cells and storing fat, but it also causes us to retain sodium.

"Those guys are amazing when they've got those what is the black or the black who's the manufacturer those raffles black I can't think of the name of it now and they manufacture like a CZs and stuff like that they look like trick them out. Anyway they trick those guns out and though I shoot some of your three O 8s and but yeah just find out what if your buddies use an MOA or meals or whatever gets the same thing that your buddies using and go with that find out if you're just hunting with it or you're doing precision by yourself or if you're shooting competition, dig deep and go into the forums like Tony said and do that. Or if you're just building it as a bench gun, go with something that's going to help you out because most of my shooting is based on a hunting perspective or just my own informal shooting. So I don't shoot a lot of competition very rarely. I shoot like apple seed stuff mainly in this or I'm actually a little still challenged maybe once or twice a year, but most of them is hunting because I put meal on the table. And so that's we hang closed pins up at 25, 50 yards and shoot for a couple of times a year and that's about it. But most of ours is hunting and it was just a bunch of guys to get together and we in October closed vans off. And we started losing a lot of money in that way because we shoot 5 hours of clothes peeing. Yeah, exactly. So, you know, you got to be on your game when it comes to that and you start losing a lot of money and you want it. So, but just do your research and you don't have to go to the most high end, but there's a lot of manufacturers out there. And we have a lot of them on the show. That have some really great optics that would do you rot. And if you get something, you don't have to have a dedicated scope. Because you can dope that thing out and rot down on your dope card where this optic is hitting at certain distances if you have a good range finder. Yeah, exactly. Exactly. Well let's not forget this. If you do go to these competitions and you're not buying it for competition, you can see you are. These guys will have new scope because maybe they started with a budget of and they've upgraded and you'll be able to get a used in good condition, optic that somebody else already ran through, but it works. They just upgrade them. Or somebody's getting out of the sport altogether and they're trying to get rid of their stuff. So I gotta figure that. Yeah. I got two or three Simmons laying in there in a shelf right now. Exactly. So yeah. I hope that answered your question or just gave you tons of more. Use the shit out of you. Exactly. Now that that's done, Tony can tell us about diversity shoot events. The first next diverse issue is coming up with recoil range. So I can't wait to see you guys Thursday. We're going to be there. And we're going to have a lot of fun. We've already sold significant amount of tickets. So help us out. Come on out. We're putting together packages now for giveaway. Raffles, whatever, because we're trying to raise funding and get me out to train and learn the St. Louis. If you want to donate to something like that, please do. You can also go to PayPal tech in two 84. I should pull that because they have a PayPal me account. I think that's what we call. We're trying to get a bunch of different things. I want to get Zelle up. I want to get PayPal cash app and we'll see other one. Windows. But when all that stuff on the website, so because people, oh, and also go, not go spend don't forget to get some Gibson go because. Go fund me has proven that they're listen, if all of a sudden your cause is deemed not politically correct, they will take your money and give to other people. That's what they did to the truck drivers in Canada instead of the refunding the money back to the people who donated. They just gave the money to the charities of their choosing. I don't want to be a part of that anymore. So that's what you're doing. Also, if you and I've also stopped using Patreon. So if you donate to my Patreon back off, just go. I'm down with them too. So I'm going to find an alternative to them. Because it just not working out. They had their bank issues and I have received my money this year. And we're on my side. So yeah, so help us out versus shoot dot com. We have the schedule up for the rest of the year. I had to cancel the great planes expedition. The great plays of mercy issued exhibition because again a funding working on 501c3. So hopefully by the end of summer, we might have something going. So we can get funding. So I don't have to beg for money. I don't have the whole wrath. So I can hold off this because we got some stuff going on. Not whole graph was because I need to make the bills to pay the bills so we can go somewhere, I hope something. So diversity shoot dot com you want to help us out. We're going to do the work. I'll be contacting Greek weaponries and hopefully they give us their side. And I can tell

"Yeah, yep. So I got that. But yeah, I mean, I like it. I just. Yeah. So that was the lionheart Vulcan 9. So next up, C and H precision has come out with some red dots. I put the EDC red dot in the shout outs, partly because you could use it on the lionheart because of the footprint. MSRP on this one is 249 95. And yes, that was my reasoning for putting this one in there. But this isn't a little, it's called the EDC because of course it's a micro red dot as you would put it. It has an RMS C cut or a footprint depending on how you want to look at it. Right now, red is available. But there is green and multi radical versions coming in the future. I think you can pre order them there like 25 bucks more, but either way you get it. They ten levels of brightness, of course, one and two are night vision compatible. It's shake shake to wake up as pretty much everything anymore is and should be. You know, auto off after 5 minutes in activity. 50,000 hours battery life. One piece aluminum body, you know, shockproof, waterproof, to one meter for 30 minutes. You know, you get the idea, but everybody's coming out with these. Lens diameter on this is 16 millimeters. Total windage adjust and elevation is 35 MOA totals for 70, so that's often zero. One amyloid click value, it does run a three MOA dot that multi radical version runs a 34 MOA circle also. So parallax free, of course, runs a 16, 23 battery, or 32, whatever it is. Yeah. It's a shock proof for plus P M plus B plus ammo. Well, plus P plus M plus V plus ammo. But it also says, I know, at the top, it says 1500 gs for a thousand times is what they tested it to. So I'm pretty sure plus P plus in any ammo that a pistol that this comes you would fit on. Will work. But yeah, I get what you're saying, rusty. I just curious, 'cause we'll get my ten millimeter out with some Lee hard advance. I don't think you're gonna break it. Okay. I'm just curious. Just curious. Ways of approximately 17 grams. It's 41 millimeter by 25 millimeters by 24 millimeters for the size. Like I said, they have two other, they have, they came out with not just this optic that it also has like most RMS C cut. It's got a little ironside in the rear of it. It is a side load battery. So unlike some of the other micro these little small RMS C footprints, you do not have to take it off to change the battery. That in itself is a big plus. I, you know, it's out there. Like I said, they make one that's like, what's the large, the SRO size? And then they also make an enclosed version. Which is larger, but they did come out with the sites. If you know anything about C and H precision, they've been making like red dot adapters and milling slides for ages. So I've seen this in somebody else's not too long ago, with that same site in the back of it. Oh yeah, lots of them. A lot of the ones have it. It might have been the Gideon ones from JSD supply. Maybe I'm not sure what the process is right. In the same process and I tell you, I mean, I'm assuming they're probably all coming in the same place. Bravo or there's probably two factories in China that make them and they all make them to whatever specs these companies want would be. Yeah, but you know, if the if the suppliers are standing behind the stuff, so be it, run them in the process or rot and hail the battery lobster 50,000 hours the first day of the home. I'll run them. I mean, I run the thing is you might not get the most expensive, but you can get what you can afford. And you can run it and they stand behind it. That's what you got. And if they stay behind it, and it works, run it. Yeah, that's all you can do. And from my experience and I think probably a lot of other people's all of these new smaller red dots are these auto wake ones. You know, that are in this price range are all fairly fairly good. I mean, you never really hear any problems with them. Of course, as with all of them, if you drop them, there's a chance you could break the glass or pop the glass out of them. You know, stuff like that. You know what happened? What we said was going to happen. What we said freaking how many years ago when 5. It was probably well, it's probably been about that. We've been doing the same caused all this. Well, I mean, when the first red dots came out besides the word. Yes. And when that soda happened and we learned they broke the code and more and more companies are going to start putting these out and we're going to get quality optics in a lower price. And we're in a middle of the I mean, I don't even know what part of the swing we're in, but it's well on the way that brand new companies popping up and we're getting better and better for less and less. Now I still think it's probably going to be between the two. This is like two 50. Yeah. It's going to be like two 50 to 7 50. It's going to be that spot that you can get a really good grid that is not going to flow.
"olive" Discussed on Cooper And Anthony Show
"And getting real food right. And there's a coppola is right in my neighborhood francis coca-cola's and they amazing italian food. They do a gluten free pasta. That i could have their. They don't have gluten free pasta at at Olive garden set. Last time i went. They didn't no the food i had in little. Italy was the next level so right. There's no way you can go to little italy and go. Let's go to olive garden. It just doesn't happen that way. I'll of someone. Yeah someone took me to. Raoult's i mean that. Was it hands down the greatest italian food in the world. I will never go into a pizza hut or an olive garden ever again. Because we got raoult's here yet and every time i would drive by a domino's i would yell at them and say why are you here. Do you know next door is the best pizza you've ever tasted in your life right necked. People still go to dominos. I don't know why so but olive garden is outside of new york. City is a famous place. There's always a line to get into the place and it's pretty much fast food italian fast food. It's early fast food. Though i call it italian fast food and david is the food that david steelers says. The food doesn't even look good in the commercials for olive garden. I don't even know if there is an olive garden on long island. If we didn't see any yeah. We were young. So but the waiters waitresses are talking now the worst thing about being at an olive garden for them. Oh what is it so the things that they absolutely hate about olive garden. Oh great. let's hear it. The absolute number one worst thing was never ending possible. It was a promotion they had were. You walk in. It's nine bucks. You can eat all the pasta. You want t till your head pops off. Was it a pasta bar where you go up and take it yourself for the waiters have to bring to you have to bring it to you. So you've finished one played. They're bringing another blade than they bring you another plate. They're talking about people would sit there for three hours. Eating this crap somebody would even throw up and continued just to get their money's worth so you know if it's nine ninety. It was seven ninety nine so seven ninety nine. They're going to give you a ten dollar tip in say vis a thirty percent tip right. That's right you know so. They just ran back and forth for three hours for three bucks and are the drinks. Bottomless is well the drinks. I don't know if they were or not but the salads now unlimited so they still have unlimited salad and breadsticks people having unlimited salad. Who really pretty good. I once brought a table of salad a salad to their table. One guy dumped the whole salad bowl on their plate. And said i'll take more please. So is eating nonstop salad. Okay so yeah. Anything labeled as analysts is truly endless so people will stop themselves until they are literally sick. They say the kitchen at olive garden. The cleanest kitchen they've ever seen. Oh i'm happy to hear that you. Yes so there wa- they walk into wa. I wasn't expecting this bia. So clean also. The employees aren't allowed to eat any breadsticks because they turn them out so fast because people there unlimited breadsticks so people into the breadsticks are just so fricking good so there's always breadsticks coming out. So that's the worst part. Is you have to carry these things out. They smell so good. And you can't have one now allowed to have any right. Which which makes sense. Because i worked in a mexican restaurant and they would make their own chips and it was the same thing where you bring a bowl of chips and then turn around. And they'd be like more chips pleased. And then you had to go to where they were making the chips and we couldn't eat any of them because of we ate they wouldn't be enough for the customers. Because they i mean they really went through the chips and salsa like crazy the the other unlimited thing they have unlimited soup in soup is a pain in the ass because it takes. Prep time to make the soup and the server has to do that. It's not something the chef does the server does so it's unlimited soup so every time they want another bowl of soup they have to go back and prep that i will tell you as a former server that specifically soups are the way they would serve it. You had to get a plate. That had a doyle e on it you had already have the doilies on. The plates had a stack of plate. Doorly plate doorly plate doyle so you had to make sure the joy was on their nice and then you put the bowl on top and the reason why you do the is so it doesn't move around so it stays in place you can bring it over and then summer. The soups were imparts like. If there was corn soup they had the corn broth and then the corn separate and you had to put them together yourself and then there was a little bowl to garnish it. So that's just one bowl that you're doing that with now. Imagine you have a table of eight. And you've got gotta sit there and put together eight soups you know and everybody has unlimited soup at the table. You're never leaving One waiters at one saw a customer out a part of her. We've and put it in her pasta. She then told me she found it and they're and wanted her meal comped. Now get outta here. Yeah so there's a hair in hidden that looks like your hair. No it's hair yeah. It's it's pink and yours is pink and we have four bald guys in the kitchen right now. So that's your hair. We're going to know a brunette giving that to you for free. It doesn't happen too often but customers do like to steal the graders really. Yeah they're kind of expensive and they want the at home olive garden experience so they seal the cheese graders do they leave the cheese grater at your table Most restaurants you come over and you grade the cheese and then you bring it back to the kitchen. You don't leave it there at the table. No i guess because if you want a lot of auditees big to say here you do it have you okay. Coffee is another most annoying thing to serve. You have to get a pitcher to fill it up for a coffee get a cup saucer spoon and a little cup with cream and grabs a sugar. It just takes forever. Yes that was every restaurant every restaurant the coffee situation. And then you also offer cappuccinos or lattice. Those take a while to make as well. Those are not easy to make and that takes some time. And what sucks is if you're a server you have to do your own cappuccinos and you have like eight tables. And you're they're making like five cappuccinos. The rest of the tables are like what the hell happened to her chicago. If you make complaints and given a gift card by the restaurant the gift card actually looks different than a standard gift card that you purchase at as a gift so this is because you can have just people complaining and getting nonstop gift cards and they know who you so. The gift card for complainers is like let's say red whereas regular gift card is whites if someone hands you a red gift card. You're just like whoa okay. Tipping me when they sit down they give you that. Yeah oh god but why. Don't they have a salad bar and a soup bar. And i know they can't now cause a cova but before cova did they should have had it. We go take it yourself. I mean i liked that about like you know what was that. The golden corral. It's great you just pay.

"To the episode. So another thing that we get asked a lot about is confidence and i just think that we we hear a lot from podcast listeners. Who experienced imposter syndrome and have that inner critic they have a really hard time silencing so you've spoken about this another interviews that you've done and i'm really curious what advice you'd have for someone who's struggling with those things. Oh gosh yes. I think the first first thing that i personally had to do was really deep into. What are these stories that. I've told about myself to my salt. And where did they come from and unraveling a little bit of. That was incredibly helpful. I think the second is this concept of inner critic Is it tied to zere and whereas here coming from like what are you truly trade of and for me a lot of it was. I was afraid of what other people think. I thought they would laugh at me. I thought they'd say how dare she you know. I don't see each fast degree. I didn't come from some fancy to see brands I thought people would just laugh at me and say like how dare she comes up with something in. Does this look like who is she to do that. And i had to really spend a lot of time I as i said unraveling untying where that came from. And why wireless feeling that way. So i would highly recommend doing that. There's a book called. Silencing your credit by stone so for for people who are kind of read and work through it that book was super instrumental and then finally during this time i did work with a life coach for the first time in my life and that was also really game changing because she had me doing things that i would have historically thought were like oh fun and but kind of woo like neko vision board but she truly helped me manifest some of this century holiday which again sounds ridiculous but working with her. Help me push through a lot of blocks that i had created for myself. We're gonna move into some short and sweet questions to wrap up. I'm very curious to know. Do you have any other favorite food related startups on my so. Many but first and foremost seed in mill is a tahini brand. That is so delicious. It's women-owned they're based in new york. So any new yorkers listening to this they also have a chelsea market outpost where you can buy halwa. Tahini tahini saucer. There to knees are so delicious. And i think that with the bright honey there can be some magic that can be created. I've been mixing the two addington pistachios Eating it as a snack so love seton hill. There is a focus. Sunny hot sauce company that just launched called people people it's p. e. p. l. And they use a lot of the ingredients that come from traditional baucus sunny food. So i have.

I think six months ago okay. Cool back at you when asked the million dollar question. Oh i wanna let you ask the million dollar question something. Everyone wants to know becca. I want you to ask it okay. So by far the most popular questions when we put out the call for questions was can we get a promo and we know firsthand that. That's not something that you really do. But we also know that you're going to give our listeners a pro because we talked about it before i start reporting. Yes yes as you said. This is something we really do not do. It's because of being a small business and having the margins that we do ensued. But i am so. I just adore you and grace and the community that y'all built and so yeah use bad on paper for a code for the fall to stock up on some honey and all oil and vinegar and all your all the good staff and what does that get you.

Really bad at speculating on people's ages. I said a few weeks ago that i thought tanks twenty six and i think she's thirty two so i don't i feel like this is much younger than me like i would say. She's twenty five. But what do i know anyway. Her account focuses a lot on personal finance. And what i really like is how transparent she is about her finances and she also tracks her net worth and shares it like openly which is such a bold fucking move but if you like the type of content we do whenever we talk about money. I think you'll really like this account and especially if you're a little bit younger. Some of the stuff she posts about. I don't necessarily relate to like she lives in a studio apartment and she's definitely like young. She feels younger than me but I just i love. Seeing women openly talked about money and personal finances. What is your regular obsession. Oh my my regular obsession is a tv show. So i discovered this tv show.

A we had to cancel a lot of travel plans with cova. And so now. I'm taking a lot of short local breaks just because my work schedule is so busy but We go down to the desert with. I found olives and it is very very hot down there. It's much too hot for this breed of dogs with their sma. She faced but we stay in the air conditioning. And we take turns and We take Like going to the pool and things so somebody can be home and supervise that she doesn't get into those trash cans. Which will you know. You can't leave her alone but we've gone down to the desert and we go to other little beach locations and a friend of mine just bought a cabin so it's going to be a new pug lodge and we're going to plan some fundraising shelter fundraising events and then. Our big trip is at the end of the summer. We are going to be going off to hawaii and all of does not get to join us in hawaii. It's much too restrictive and we need a little break. We've been at each other side for forever and so i'm leaving her with a girlfriend. That's thrilled i think. She has a favorite spot when you that she has gone to that she always enjoys going back to pat from home. I gosh that would be hard to say. We've been to some really nice places. I think she likes ohi because they they spoil her so much. We go to resort and spa five done some events with them and they do homemade dog treats and they really welcome an pampered. Canine guests and so she. She knows ojai 'cause she's been there and she runs right up to that little market that they have on the on the premises cheetos. Right where those hot biscuits come from and loves it there and honestly all of his been treated like royalty where where we go. People have been so kind and You know pretty much. Allow her to go anywhere. And since we're doing video or shooting commercials or things like that. She gets a lot of liberties that a lot of dogs don't otherwise get but she is well trained she can obey commands and she's always on a leash so yeah i feel safe when going there in the in the cod. She have a favorite spot or her spot. She hates the car. The car you talk about a relaxed dog. She literally was traumatized by the car. So that was another thing that i had to really practice again with really short little trips around the block or in and out of the car and really spend a lot of time that that trauma i not fear trauma vomit and froth at the mouth and the vet gave me. I like doggy tranquilizers and those just made it worse they didn't cover down..

"It's part of our daily routine He is lucky that she lives at the beach. I don't go a lot in the summer because it's just starting to be way too busy. And a lotta dogs. There are brand new. They're not trained. They probably don't have any business being there just yet but Just for safety. I take her to a lot of training classes and i do like little agility things with her because she loves to run around and play or get together with a couple of friends that have dogs that she plays well with and then they run around and do things and it's fun for me to to catch up and we go on long walks two to three times a day if possible if the weather permitting And just nice relaxing walks. I let her sniff everything. It used to drive me crazy. And i dragged her along. And then i realized you know this is sort of like somebody pulling me by the heels through the shopping mall when there's a shoot nail so exactly ladder sniff everything and So we do that. And all of those have really helped her feel secure and balanced and the other thing is since she is just had such a rough beginning literally rough I'm pretty cautious about the people. That i have come over and stay with her if i have to go out of town or watch her. I make sure that they're they're people that she knows and feels comfortable with. And that makes a big difference to that she's been a lotta time on the beach itself. And how is she with the water. She hates the water. You could throw a t-bone stake in that water. And she wouldn't go near it and yeah but she does love the beach and so we play. Keep away from the waves and the waves are pretty small. So it's not a big concern. But yes she loves going down to the beach. And and i do try to go when it's not not crowded and i just give her free rein and she just tears down the beach and then she comes back and just flops around sleep. So it's it's quite quite a life and yeah that's she did. She loves it with the water house. That transition to boston.

"That's a little bit unusual is if you want a very relaxed. Zen dog starts with you and food and exercise are super important. You don't have to overdo it but just getting out in the fresh air and throwing a ball or if you have an older dog or they have mobility issues just putting them in a buggy or wagon and taking them on a safari and just getting for australia. You're going to do that. I did that during covid working from home or you have a dog that it. They're just not ready to be out yet. Hiding little things in letting them do knows tracking and and sniffing things. There's a lot you can do physically in your home. That's appropriate for all ages and stages of dogs. Cbd has been my secret sauce. I have been using. Cbd's since people didn't even know what that was and were confusing it with medical marijuana and eight way drug. And i'm going to have a dog on. Opiates and and actually it has been a lifesaver in calming down and keeping an anxious pets not just for the fourth of july but keeping them balanced and you can use cbd for everything from highly anxious dog. That's barking allied or or as fearful to Dogs that are are suffering from from pain due to aging or or a medical condition and just like food. There's as many types of cbd at literally as there are food. So i just i caution people to make sure that you do your due diligence on cd a bad. Cbd is not going to be potent and can be dangerous so make sure that your vetting your products really understand. There's not that much regulation in not at all and that's one of the things that i can certainly point people in the right direction because i have vetted my products thoroughly. I've used them on hundreds of dogs and I'd be more than happy to at least help people with What to look for and how to vet a company or point them to the companies that i use than they can be assured. They're they're going to get good things and that. That should help a lot with all of you mentioned that the she's had a few different toys and things as their particular taught of toy that you would say her favorite there is and this is called They're called multi pet. And that's who sells this toy. And when i brought this home this became my new go-to and you can't see it but it's a little stuffed. I'm pulling it in from the app. She hides these because there is no great but they have. This is a little cow. I guess you can see it. If your videos on that same move up there she goes through and that the ducks quack they of pigs and those have been the most fun and comforting and she takes that into her little crate and just cuddles with it and chews on it and that's been a really comforting toy Also there's they sell them. I forget the brand but they have a little bit of fair. Ramon that you can actually put on the stuffed toy. And that's the hormone that the mommy gives off. So it's a very calming relaxing hormone. That's in the toy and it. It really soothing to to the dogs so i i use those two when olives had a big day or i do a lot of events for my work so sometimes that can be a lot of energy and a lot of other dogs and those are nice. Nice little kind of grounding things to do with olive when we get back us the you play a little games with olive..

"I just knew kind of the pug temperament and the rescue dog temperament. Which is you're saving their life and they're gonna be forever grateful and she was anything but a content relax dog. She was very traumatized and she was also super super cute she was tiny little black pug puppy and everybody just went crazy for her and we live down at the beach and there's a lot of other pets and dogs especially and i quickly saw that she was very very akashi could be very aggressive if she felt threatened an insecure so i really had to diligently train her and get to know her situation and how best to to relax of very traumatized anxious dog and i guess that's that's what inspired my blog is to teach other pet owners some simple easy things that might save the life of their pet and certainly will save them a lot of money in vet bills and so i encourage people to to reach out or tune in or visit my website. The weekly runs. Because i have a lot of great resources on food and natural remedies and first and foremost what your your podcast is is having a well-balanced happy and relaxed dog was was was all the aggression towards just a dog dog or was it a dog dog person as well. It's always it's never people it's always other dogs. It's professionals call it resource guarding and if olive feels threatened like her food or her toys or her attention from the pack leader is threatened she would be basically attack. You know as best she could. She's a little tiny pug so but still she would growl and get away. And i had to learn to read her body language and learn about signs of stress and so that i don't put her in positions that are too much for her. And that's another thing. I i would love to share with your listeners One of the things i hear is that people think that rescue shelter dogs can often come with. Well they're damaged goods and they can come with a lot of problems and that just isn't the case a lot of times it simply neglect. Or they haven't gotten the proper training and they can be the best dog you've ever had all avoid regan puppy and she came with more issues than a lot of dogs that i've seen that are older..

And then we'd gone on vacation of well vacation for me in a business trip for him. And i got a text alert pretty much right after agreeing that no dogs. Until after the holidays and the text alerts showed a little pug that had looked just like raisin at two years old and the soonest. i could race out of that hotel room and tell my husband. I was going to get a manny petty. I raced over to the shelter to look for this. Pug and i didn't get any further as to how i was gonna pug back into and convince my husband but when i got to the shelter that cage it said pug unavailable and as i turned around to walk back out to the front desk and ask i heard this whimpering and i thought oh there's there's a problem and i turned around and when i walked back.
