"Treat people with math and phetamine psychosis and people coming in with stroke and heart attack and overdoses that look different than than opioid overdoses. and so. that's one of the steps. The other step really mean from my point of view is we gotta we gotta figure out a way to get this very effective treatment. Method used in our communities. It's for for the treatment of people with stimulant use disorder. Contingency management has a similar level of effectiveness as buprenorphine does for the treatment of people with opioid use disorder. So we have this incredibly effective treatment. We're not using. And i would encourage groups to talk with their state agency about doing some pilot projects about funding some Use of contingency management using the evidence based parameters. Now when you hear this thing well we'll use rewards and we'll use incentives. Some people think. Well i know it will do will give people candy bars when they come in or we'll give them gold stars on chart that's not contingency management. That's using small incentives contingency management. There's a great literature on it. There's lots of groups that are that can provide consultation getting a real contingency management program going. We'll save a lot of lives if it can. We can start getting that technique. Used santa craig plan. Let's all make sure that we know what resources are out there. I know that you know for the opioid crisis we spent. I don't know how much time and energy pushing that everybody have nar can. What do we do for stimulants. Well arkansan good idea as well because remember a lot of these all the virtually all the cocaine now much of the methamphetamine has fentanyl on it so when someone is overdosed if if the ambulance arrives at a somebody's house and they're told this person was just using methamphetamine. And they overdosed. Well you don't know for sure if they've had a methamphetamine overdose or an opioid overdose because if the drug had sentinel in it now there's different symptoms in the ambulance. People would know that they may want to. The people were stimulant people with stimulant use. Disorder should carry narcan because they don't know when they're going to get a purchase a drug that is going to have fennel in it so dark in is part of the package for those who use intravenously having clean syringes is Will reduce the amount of hiv and hepatitis..

"I don't know seven or eight. Analyses of all the data on treating people with cocaine methamphetamine use disorder. And all of these analyses come to one conclusion. Which is that. Contingency management provides tremendous benefits to people trying to reduce their use of cocaine methamphetamine. And what do you define. Contingency management is a good question. Contingency management is a very simple concept. It's based on the use of positive reinforcement that is incentives rewards to provided to individuals for behavior that that demonstrates reduced stimulus for example. A person and treatment would come in to a clinic and could give a drug free urine sample in earn a ten dollar gift card and if they did that three weeks in a row they might get three ten dollar gift cards and a bonus of twenty dollar gift card or they might get rewarded for attending treatment sessions. It's it's a technique based on conditioning. And it's been demonstrated repeatedly multiple multiple studies. Some of which. I did but Many others that this is a technique that really dramatically reduces stimulate use. It sounds too simple to be a as effective as it is. When you look at the data it's really quite striking that if we want to help people stop using stimulants. Contingency management is our first line treatment. And my guess knowing what. I know about rural substance use. Disorders is harder to find practitioners. Who know how to use contingency management in our rural communities. Yes well actually. The veterans administration has in their treatment programs in the va. They use contingency management as their primary treatment intervention for people with stimulant use disorder. They've been doing that now for three or four years. Based on the research evidence there the advisory group looked at the evidence. Said we should be doing this and so they are. They're doing that in the va nationally. However that's about the only place. Contingency management is being. Done the idea of coming up with money to fund this in our non. Va health system hasn't happened yet. there's also there are attitudes by both. Clinical and policymakers about whether this is an acceptable way to provide treatment whether providing people with tangible incentives is something that quote unquote should be done or if they should be getting sober because they should be getting sober. Not because they're being rewarded. I i i've done. These talks now for twenty five years. And and my what i try to tell. People is look if you work with people with stimulant use disorder. Resign as i have and you find something.

"So there is some overlap with that but it didn't the people who are involved in stimulants and cocaine and methamphetamine. The vast majority didn't start with medicines and then switch. They started with the street drug itself. What's the impact of stimulant use on the health of the individual. Oh it's pretty scary. The and this is. This is changed some in the twenty years since the earlier meth problem because of the increased purity and potency of the methamphetamine the drug produces profound effects on the brain in. We're talking now. I'm gonna talk a little bit about methamphetamine. But i wanna come back to cocaine methamphetamine. We've been able to measure with brain. Imaging studies dramatic changes in among other things the reward system of the brain part of the brain that makes you feel pleasure and feel enjoyment in life The prefrontal cortex which controls judgment and In the part of the brain that is involved with memory and cognition. All of those parts of the brain are damaged by methamphetamine. And it's it's not like it's damaged. It's actually damaged when individuals have been using methamphetamine chronically. Their brains are functioning like people with a traumatic brain injury. They have significant difficulties thinking feeling and And making judgments because of the way the drug is affected the brain and what are the treatment options for someone who uses stimulants. Well right now. there's been an extensive research effort by the national institute on drug abuse to find medications. I was involved with that for ten fifteen years when i was at ucla. And we've tested a lot of medicines. However our success rate has been minimal There are a couple of medicines right now that have some promise for the treatment of methamphetamine use disorder. A medicine called ramon or or A murtaza's pain which is an antidepressant. Seems to have some benefits. A recent study. In the new england journal medicine just showed that a combination of naltrexone extended release trek zone and wellbutrin or be appropriate on the combination of those medicines appears to be useful for some people. The problem is the number of people. Those medicines are used for useful for seemed to be relatively modest. The bupropion naltrexone study. It was maybe one in eight who responded positively so there's a lot of searching and a lot of work going into the search for these medicines right now. We don't have medicines. We do have behavioral treatment. There's a technique called contingency management which has an extensive amount of evidence and there.

"Not only for concern for people at substitutes disorders but because the environmental hazards of homebase labs people were terrified that a house in their neighborhood would blow up because someone was cooking meth in the bathtub. But we don't hear about that anymore. How is the house. The danger shifted. Well the amine when people could go to the drug store and buy a case of pseudephedrine medic over the counter medications for allergies in decongestants and they could take those those pills home and in a very rapid time convert them into methamphetamine. A home lab it. During that period we had the problem. You describe which was that. The production was as dangerous as the as the use. However in in two thousand and five federal laws were passed. That means you can no longer by pseudephedrine in large quantities. Mean i think now if you went to depends on which state you're in but i think generally people are limited to buying two small packages of pseudephedrine products and so that law and related laws. Have real brought an end to the domestic production of methamphetamine. However is that happened. The cartels in mexico got involved in supplying methamphetamine. And they've done it in a much more efficient way produce a much more potent drug and although we don't have the danger of labs blowing up the danger of the drug that's being imported into the. Us is much more deadly than what we saw twenty years ago and the overdose death Overdose death problem from the current drugs on the street is much more severe than it was twenty years ago and one thing that very jake continues to highlight. In regards to opioids is that many people start using opioids because they had a medically valerie's do so and received a prescription from their doctor are there similarities stimulants Not not yet. The there is some concern in. There's some research going on looking at the extent to which The rate of prescription of medicines like adderall. And ritalin in amphetamine are going up for the treatment of adhd and in other disorders. But that doesn't that's not the primary source. I mean it. It may be an increasing problem. We don't know but what we do know is right now on the streets across the country virtually all over the country methamphetamine widely available. It's cheap it's pure and the distribution system that is the dealers are pretty much the same dealers.

Unfortunately depending on a whole variety of circus circumstances some people head down a pathway that takes them to changing their brain and developing what is for many people lifelong disorder that they have to learn how to live with. You are presenter at our recent appalachian communities opiate response summit talking about stimulants. how do you define stimulants. Stimulants are the category of drugs that include drugs like including cocaine methamphetamine prescription medications prescription medications used for the treatment of adhd narcolepsy. Things like amphetamine adderall and ritalin. All of those are in the stimulant category. There are some others. I mean nicotine and caffeine are also a mild stimulants but the three the the main two that were addressing right now in the. Us public health system are cocaine and methamphetamine in this podcast has had several episodes on the opioid crisis in rural america. What's different about stimulants. What happened is we've gone through a couple of phases of a problems with stimulants in the nineteen eighty s and nineteen ninety s and early two thousands. We saw both a cocaine epidemic with the drugs coming from south america and at the in the early stages cocaine was a cool hip drug that was used by whole array of people and it was considered at the time that cocaine wasn't addicting. One of the first things we had to do after we saw thousands of people losing their lives and their. You know everything they'd ever Accomplished that losing them to cocaine was we had to redefine. What addiction is in order to take into consideration. What happens to people from cocaine and about the same time. We also saw in rural america the emergence of methamphetamine as a huge problem. And the the source of the drug was in home laboratories If you watch breaking bad you got. You got a sense of what the earlier methamphetamine crisis was like and that really went for about twenty years until laws were passed that restricted the availability of the precursor drugs in it. Pretty much went away however in the last five years both cocaine methamphetamine have made a resurgence methamphetamine in particular as a much more dangerous drug and the thing that makes the current epidemic. Even more dangerous. Is that fennel is included in almost all of the drugs. We see on the street now including cocaine and methamphetamine so we have more dangerous stimulants and included in those more dangerous stimulants are is fennel which is an incredibly dangerous opioid well and with that when i first started this job.

"To the rural health voice. I am beth o'connor your host. We discuss real health issues at the grassroots level and how state and federal policies play out at our local communities our substance use disorders related to stimulants different or similar from. Opiates dr richard. Rawson research professor at the vermont center for behavior and health joining me to discuss stimulants and how we can do a better job with treatment. So welcome wreck. Hi glad to be with you. I'm so glad you have able to join us here today. So let's dig a little bit into your history. How did you first become interested in studying substance use disorders. Well the somewhat mundane answer to the question. Is i needed a job. And when i finish when i finished school in nineteen seventy four. There were some of the first Research projects on addiction being funded by the brand new national institute on drug abuse. And so i took a position at ucla. Actually it was one of the first ten grants that the night a funded and so we started out we. It was heroin addiction grant because this was the post vietnam heroin Epidemic and so. I was involved in some work early on with treating people with heroin addiction. And what do you think you know with that sort of foundation and looking at heroin addiction. What are you seeing. Some of the biggest changes have been in the field of substance use disorders over the years. Well i think one of the most meaningful is that we've moved away from Providing treatments and services that are based on our belief systems and our ideology and we've moved to providing treatment based on science and evidence. And i think that's been a huge step forward also In the late nineties dr. Alan leshner was director of night was one of the first people to really call out addiction as a brain disease and so that we no longer thought of it as something like a disease or a metaphorical disease but is an actual disease in. The brain is changed by the use of drugs. And i think both of those those issues combined to point us in the direction of using Treatments like buprenorphine for that has made a huge difference. In our capacity to effectively treat people with with opioid use disorder. Certainly well things that we've talked about. This podcast is that you know some seuss disorder. It's not it's not a moral failing. It's not a lack of religious conviction. Failing this is this is a disease. Just like having diabetes..

And that's a great question and there are many ways to look at it. A simple way to look at it is when we expedient drama of any kind it creates an emotional signature that is stored inside our body as it a minor for us to avoid experiencing similar negative experiences in the future. It makes sense right so the body wants you to a wide. Negative expedients are another drama. Potentially in the future in so it's sort of adding a minder.

House votes to increase stimulus checks to $2,000, but will Senate follow?
"Now in Colorado's morning news lawmakers in Washington taking another look at President Trump's request for a $2000 stimulus checks. The Democrats controlled House gave the plan the Green light last night and sent it to the Republican controlled Senate for their consideration. Let's get the latest now with Colorado Congressman Ed Perlmutter and his take on the whole saying. Good morning, Congressman. Thanks for coming on. Thanks. They broke the morning to you Hope you had a nice Christmas. So tell us a little bit more about what you $2000 checks will mean to the average American who will get them versus $600 checks. Well, I think the average family because it would apply to all the people in the family. It will be a heck of a boost. You know, after a very difficult year, and I listened to the gentleman from invested media And he's absolutely right on the stimulative effect. That those kinds of pandemic payments will have on the economy. Congressman. It's interesting is politics. I don't need to tell you make strange bedfellows. You and the Democratic side here in Colorado, all on the president's side. I'm kind of confused by by a Republican party that seems to pledge fealty to the president in just about everything he does. But in this case, the president saying, I want Americans to do better have more money and they're pretty much voting. No. Are you surprised? Shocked by that? Yeah, I'm you know, I don't want to try to put myself in their minds. They've got their own reasons for the way they vote. But I would say to you, Marty, A number of Republicans did vote for that. $2000 payment last night. Enough So two thirds of the house voted in favor of the $2000 payment or required a pretty good number. Of Republican votes, So it's my partisan. At this point. It'll go to the Senate, and then we'll see if the Senate takes it up or not. I don't know if McConnell will want to help bring it to the floor of the Senate. Mm hmm. Yeah. What do you expect from the GOP controlled Senate? We hear that Mitch McConnell is going to speak either before or after that vote, and we'll find out more about what's in his mind. But at this point when you've got the leader of your your party and President Trump telling you to please do this, you've got the American people wanting it. Why wouldn't they vote for it? E guess in April, I would just say You know? Different members of Congress and the Senate have different reasons for the way they vote. I think the Republicans would say we don't want to add to the deficit or to the debt. What you want to have a good economy that allows for the paying of taxes that get under control and maybe with music. So we're in a potential recession. We've got a lot of people out of work for a long time now and between the unemployment piece of the covert bill plus the stimulant have payments. I think we could really push the economy and 2021 then really get things going again. Congressman speaking on that note, I guess is we're a couple weeks out from having a transition in the White House. Do you foresee you all in the house? Maybe even the Senate as well. I know you only can speak for your side of things, maybe pushing yet Another stimulus through If this one doesn't get past you see that maybe getting past in 2021 with new presidential leadership as well. I see us wanting to bring forward Maybe not the stimulus payment like this, but certainly a big infrastructure bill already that would have roads and bridges, the electrical grid waterworks. The whole building housing broadband. That itself will be a very big, stimulative kind of effort, and it will help keep the country competitive with the rest of the world. For the next 50 years. So I think that would be a good investment and a good stimulus package and I can assure you that's one of the Biden administration's top priorities. I understand. I'm sure your your office as many other representative's office is, the phones are ringing off the hook from struggling Americans. What kind of stories are you hearing from those here in Colorado that need help from From you folks in D. C. The stories are heartbreaking April, especially at this time of year. Are folks who have never been out of work before. Have been out of work for a long time. And they're just worried, you know, Forget about Christmas presents. They just want to put food on the table. So this has been Tough time for a lot of Americans. Ah, lot of people have been very innovative and ingenious and You know, trying to make ends meet, but there's only so much of that. And I think earning 2021 is gonna be a good year and 2022. Even better. We're going to get this virus in the rear view mirror, and people can Get outside, they can mingle again. I think things are gonna really turn up for all of us. It's gonna be a lot writer for all of us.

Very rarely oil of snake, which is hard to source. Ingredients ranged from benign but unhelpful like tincture of mallow route to. A dangerous. Many patent medicines contained significant levels of alcohol opium, morphine, cocaine, basically anything that would make the end user good, so they think it was working the fact that many of these medicines were made with highly addictive drugs was probably good for repeat business as well. While patent medicines were hot sellers. They weren't without their detractors. In nineteen o five and nineteen, six Collier's magazine ran a series of. Articles by Samuel Hopkins Adams entitled the Great American fraud which exposed many of the deceitful and unsafe methods practiced by patent medicine manufacturers. Exposes like these and other grassroots efforts helped bring about the first federal, food and Drug Act in Nineteen, oh six. Now drug labeling had to include a list of ingredients not. Of them just certain concerning things like heroin, chloroform, cannabis and of course alcohol. And Manufacturers were prohibited from making unproven and unprovable claims.

"This is Sam Fan. Crackdown senior producer and We're we'RE GONNA be talking about the new clinical guidelines the new policy here in BC. Basically all show but first of all garth. I think we should start out by just giving people an impression of how fucking grim things are here right now. So what is what? What have the past couple of weeks look like from your point of view? Yes it's bad Overdoses our backup. They were declining bit. But they're back into as bad as they've been really for the last couple of years a harm reduction services and overdose. Prevention sites are closing in the neighborhood or they're operating at a diminished capacity. People can't social distance you know. There's there's a lot of Crowded living conditions and a lot of people. Just don't have housing so people can't put that distance between themselves. I was through the neighborhood yesterday. People were still crowded on the sidewalks and everything and last week we were able to confirm the first person who tested positive for Cova nineteen in the neighborhood so one can only assume that combination of things is is pretty bad and the other. Obviously the really really big part of this is that we keep hearing press conferences from the city that there's going to be some kind of housing option for people who are homeless or who live in a shelter. Sro and aren't able to physically distance right but we haven't. We're not seeing like any any sort of like bold action. Take place there right We we haven't heard anything like that like Vancouver. Coastal health is told people to keep their physical distance. But we're still waiting on some kind of housing option and then finally Everyone's worried about the drug supply running out so there's already been kind of reports of shortages We've heard about prices going up but you know with all the borders and everything closed It's gotta be disrupting illegal. Drugs supply the first person I thought to call was Simona Marsh on crackdowns editorial board. She's also on the board of the Vancouver Area Network of drug users but she understands a lot about sort of the supply and distribution side of the illegal market so I called her up while she was actually working at the front desk. Advan do and good. How's it going? I'm good. How are you good So you can talk to me for a few minutes. So you're talking to us through a mask right anyway little bit but you sound good to me and so you're you're behind the desk there. Advani when people are just in the room there. What's it like there is it? Is it very crowded? Is it normal? What's going on? Yeah more than usual. Yeah because it's really up to you and other places that are opening night so our people keeping you know six feet apart from each other as vca has has told us all to do. I'm not sure how Iraq here we're GONNA have a meeting about it. Yeah and part of Your Job. Sitting at that desk is now to give out harm. Reduction supplies like people can't help themselves anymore right correct. Are you worried about running out of anything? I yeah and if you run out of pipes that means people share pipes and pipes are you can transmit cove in one thousand nine on pipes. That's right I mean not only that like down here. We're dealing with both an could still having this right and you and me were texting a couple days ago and you were saying you were worried about the illicit drug supply. What's going on with that? I'm powder devils like crazy so wait explained that you mean like to get coke is now twice as expensive. Yeah the prices went. I guess not twice as expensive. They run up. So what was it before? Like four hundred three a quarter now by fifty. Three quarters ZIP right. I've never bought in quantity before. What does that? I'm I'm small time? Simona Ground Look. I've never been to really. I don't go shopping at whole foods either or like Costco like I. Don't get a jar of mayonnaise that six feet tall and I'm just like a simple one time guy so because I know you kind of have special knowledge and all this because you have as delicately put it on this show you have helped alligator. Could you say that again agricole subsidies navigator right so? But you've been in this game for a long time. What do you think's going to happen in the next couple of weeks to the supply route borders to being shut? And it's well I can see a lot of people they don't want to sell it because they don't know next one night closed so I don't think it's GonNa be did well. Let's keep in touch about how things are going with the with the drug supply. I'm just I'm interested to see what goes on and I'm kind of worried for everybody. Who relies on it so much? You know I'm worried about them like making shit going down right right. Hopefully not okay. We'll can stay safe if you can do. Ok Tedi by so Simona tells us that coke prices are up and I talked to crackdown DETTORI board. Member Jeff Loudon yesterday. And what he's seeing is a fifty percent increase in the price of down. So you know from forty dollars a quarter now. Seems like it's going for sixty quarter at least where he is. And then you know we've heard from Laura that her connections are telling her Get Ready Droughts are coming better stockpile and there's also some reports of stimulants being harder to come by right now right. So it's it's patchy and it's it's hard to get an overall picture. It always is. But you can really see the jitters now. I guess all of this begs the question of what what it is. We should be doing right now. What would help Keep people safe. I mean it's safe supply. You know I know I know we say that a lot but it's true in in nineteen but it's also been true for the whole overdose crisis and in fact I I heard about it in the last over those crisis so in Vancouver there was overdose crisis and HIV crisis in the nineties. So you actually. You sent me a poster and this is from. Is this from the event that you would have? Is this a rally or something The posters from a meeting that we put together in the summer of Nineteen Ninety Eight. You know there was a like a lot of overdoses. A lot of overdose deaths being projected For the next year and so we were having a meeting about what we can do about this. What we were saying is let's legalize and decriminalize heroin And so the poster is of a fist holding a needle with a circle of chain going around you. You drew this and then stuck in your head right so when you wanted to make the crackdown through it. Again to be the logo the show. That's right yeah and I know you know. At that time I was really new to all this is just trying to stay ahead of my dope cygnus from the day to day so yeah. I was at the meeting. I made the poster but Dean Wilson was really involved in this stuff back then and it was just around that time. He started advocating for the same thing. So I called up Dean Wilson. He's on our editorial board and he's been an activist in this town for a couple of decades everybody. Yep Yep all right. Cool he Thanks thanks for making a little time. How you doing man? Oh I'm all right I'm just I'm kind of tired today just It was good. I saw my son. And Um it's good to see people you love and that you know what I mean. 'cause we're all kind of estranged even though we all live in the same city you know what? I mean right so and so did you guys stay like six feet apart or did you manage that. I gave a big hug and that was close. Then that it was all there was it. Was you know both kept their heads? You know what I mean. It's just you know it was whether it was and if I get the shit because I gave my son a hug well too bad I guess you gotTa do you gotTa do. Yeah Yeah we both needed it so that was all there was to. Do you remember the first time you raise the idea of safe? Supply with somebody Other than another drug user. Actually it was all part of the original insights stuff in our version before it opened up Professionally and like legitimately. We wanted to give drugs out at the place. So what did you call it before before the term safe supply? How did you refer to it like just like we should give out heroin for prescription heroin or well? We always viewed it as a a medical supply of drugs for Addiction. Not for pain not for nothing else. But for addiction we could go to doctors. They would give us a a prescription and you know we always thought it'd be a lot like mastodon well. We went and picked up every day or at salons every day and went home

It's very energizing. And just you know when you're hitting that wall in the middle of the day and you're just needing something to help pick you up. Grab your peppermint oil. You'll be surprised how well this works. And how great this feels and just is a really feel good oil and again just a couple nice. Big inhalations is a great way to use your peppermint oil also. Great in the diffuser as well. Now I said my second I have three oils but actually my second one. I'm kind of classified as my citrus oils because citrus oils are very uplifting. Now do I have a one specific citrus oil that I love? It's hard to say because there's so many good ones I love wild orange I love lemon grapefruit citrus bliss so anything citrusy is very uplifting. It's very energizing. It's feel good so if you come to my house you will find diffusers. In every single room and in those diffusers you will typically find a citrus oil diffusing now what I love about citrus oils. Is that it blends well with pretty much anything and everything. So you can add some some floral to it if you want so your you know your drain. Yam or your Lang Lang or you could do something more. Mid To experiment or peppermint or something herbal. So I love things like Rosemary which is also really nice. And the diffuser as well so again using your your citrus oils to help. Energize you Is a great way to to help give you that little bit of boost of energy throughout your day again you can do a drop into your hands and again the ten teepee couple big inhalations and you can also apply to. Paul's point so the risks behind the ears Those are also great ways to use citrus oils. Also I know that. A lot of people love aromatherapy jewelry. So you can buy necklaces. And bracelets with the aromatherapy jewelry that have eleven beads or have felt beads so that you can apply oils and just kind of smell throughout the day My third favourite oil is actually blend so. Tara has some incredible blends and one of my favorite blends to help. Give me energy through. My Day is motivate if you have not tried this oil yet. I highly suggest that you do it. Such an uplifting feel-good oil. It again has pepper minute. Has Clementines has got peppermint got some citrus oils in there it also has coriander Basil Melissa Rosemary and a little bit of Vanilla. So it's very minty fresh clean smell and I use it the same way that I use my government and I use it the same way he's my citrus oils. Whether I Do a nice little tent and have a Nice Cup a nice couple big inhalations in or I put it in my diffuser. I apply it to my pulse points or put it on my jewelry. These are the ways that I loved oils air medically because when we breathe in natural aromatic compound is going through the olfactory the nose and it's hitting our limbic system in the brain which controls a lot of different things in the body and it's a great way to use oils to help support our moves in to help to support our feeling another incredible product that you can try to help to increase energy throughout your day is meadow to Max now. I'm not sure if you guys have tried this product yet but it's probably one of my favorites especially when it comes to a balanced stable energy. Alright so this is not energy stamina complex it.

What this does is it actually delivers. Atp Andrea Cells. So it's actually enhancing might Oke Andrea function and again you're going to be delivered a solid stable balanced energy throat. You're so if you haven't yet tried this. It's an awesome product to try out like I said one of my favorites I typically like to use it in the morning Prior to my workout and again I like to get things done in the morning between six. Am and noon. And that's typically what. I like to use this product just to give that balanced table energy throat my day now again as we're talking about energy. I think it's important to know that there are many things in our life that contribute to what causes us to experience energy right. So it's not just grab your peppermint or grab your your oils. Which are great. They will help their great tools that we can put an tool belt for for emergencies and for things like that but we also want to look at our lifestyle right. Are we sleeping properly. Are we getting the right amount? Might amount of hours of sleep. Are we eating? The right. Diet are as neutral as our nutrition up to par right. Are we getting enough movement in into our daily into our day as well right? Are we moving our bodies are we? Are we exercising? And so I want you to really look at these areas can take a look like. Are there things that you can improve when it comes to sleep? I mean I I love having a good sleep routine in place right and I love a good bedtime routine for my children and for myself for me. I'm all it's all about self care so again I love being able to go in and get the diffusers going using some of my favorite nighttime oils things like lavender. Vetiver Cedar Wood Frankencense piece. So those are some of the oils that you'll find in the bedroom things that I like to use. I will always have a lavender touch roller bottle beside my bed to roll in the bottoms of my feet. I also like to have a piece of paper and a pen so that I can bring dumping but everything in my head onto paper so that it just helps me to have a better night's sleep right so look at your routines and create some great routines for yourself and for your family to help to improve your sleep because if you're sleeping better you're going to have more energy the next day or eight so take a look at that. We also want to look at our nutrition and our diet right. We WanNa make sure that we're eating the right foods right. We WanNa make sure eating fruits and vegetables. We WanNa make sure eating. Lean searches a protein complex. Carbohydrates healthy fats. We WanNa make sure that. We're watching the amount of sugar that we're eating processed foods. We want to eliminate or limit those things right so for me. I know that healthy diet but our foods aren't as nutrient dense. They were fifty years ago. So it's important for me to make sure that I'm using the right supplements in in in along with my Diet. Because that's what's going to help to give me energy now. I loved Otas. Lifelong vitality pack. It is definitely one of my favorite products that actually helps to give me energy throughout my day as well In here we have three different products that we use. We have our L. S. E. R. S. Which is our cellular complex. Which actually going to help provide great healthy cells in the body because as we age our cell to diminish you. It's important for us to have the the making sure that we're keeping those cells replenished we also have our Seo Omega which is our Omega supplement which is great for cardiovascular Brain and joint health and we also have our micro plex vm. It's it's got your twenty two essential vitamins and nutrients in there so again. You're not getting it if you're not getting it from your daily Diet it's important to make sure you get it and so for me. I've really noticed a huge difference in my overall energy throughout my day. By using this multivitamin and making sure that an eating a well balanced nutritional diet and then the third thing is obviously exercise and movement and a lot of people have business conception that in order to exercise it means you have to go and kill yourself from Jim. Right and like all these all these things that we have to go and work out for X. amount of hours really at the end of the day as long as you get your heart rate up. Maybe break a little bit of a sweat. That's important so maybe get outside. Go for a walk. Go for a run. You know put on a a Yoga Youtube video and do some yoga. It's really easy. It's what you enjoy and I think that's the thing you have to remember when it comes to movement do what you enjoy because that ultimately that's GonNa make you happy and that's what's going to help you to continue doing those things and creating those habits in your
Three tips on how to convince friends and family to stay home
"I'm health reporting tyler. Journalists Daughter Norman Swan so norman. There's been a lot of talk recently about people not taking the pandemic seriously and people that interested to talk about how to talk about it with the people in their life. Who are still wondering around too much. Do you have any tips on how to convince that person who just doesn't want to seem to get the message yet road depends through the are probably more often than not but this preaches coming here being a younger person who feels that they're invincible and they'll just go out and get it and they'll be over it and after all they'll say isn't it just like the flu and so here's the argument one is that yes. It's true that younger people are not as likely as older people to die from it but there are plenty of younger people who die for from it. So if you think you're steel belted. You're actually not thirty to forty percent of intensive care. Unit beds are taken up with people who are relatively young and some of them die and there are no known risk. Factors for why those people died because it's not like elderly people with heart disease and diabetes and so on the no other particular risk factors so you are actually playing. Russian roulette by going out and doing it and the second reason you need to actually be serious about this is do you have family so parents and grandparents you're contributing to the spread to the community and actually could kill them and then the third thing is is when you were at school. Did you have friends that we're on to do nursing? Did you have friends who went on to mid soon or work in healthcare physios and so on because if this gets out of control they will actually die because twenty percent of people of healthcare professionals will get this. They'll get a big doors and many will get it severely and there are doctors and nurses dying of this. Is that what you want? If that isn't enough to convince people I think there's something wrong with them so I do it for yourself but also do it for the people around you people that you love. That's right because it's not guarantee you're going to get a mild dose of it so David's asking if we can clarify what the differences between nineteen and size cough to SARS. Cov too confusing SARS. Cov Two is the virus that causes covered so covered. Nine thousand nine. Is the disease so flu? Like symptoms runny nose fatigue loss of taste loss of smell sometimes diarrhea. That combination of symptoms is the disease and the disease can go for a week. And then you get better or can go for a week. And then after a week you fall off the cliff and you get really seriously ill. That's covered nineteen SARS Cov. Two is the virus that causes it and it's called SARS Cov too because this conversion over related virus to SARS which affected people about fifteen or more years ago in various countries of the world. So it's kind of a second version of the SARS virus not really. The SARS virus was the second version. People say it's the corona virus really what they should be saying. It SARS Cov Tube and the reason why you separate the two is that some people are infected with SARS Cov two and either have very very mild symptoms so mild. They don't know they've got it or totally is symptomatic and sixty percent of infections of SARS COV which leads to covered nineteen are from people who are asymmetrical very minor symptoms and therefore the don't know they're spreading around so speaking of spreading it. We're also getting a lot of questions about testing and testing kits and people are asking. Why can't we being Stra? Just manufacturer testing kits. If there's a shortage there are labs that can produce the reagents and which is the chemicals you need to analyze the genes on the virus. So we do have those reagents around and we can manufacture but we don't have many facilities left in Australia which actually can do that so over the years. We've lost industries in Australia. Which have the tooling which allows you to produce these kits at mass-scale so we can produce the kids but not in the quantities. That's required us as why we're having to import them but we do have some machines around which can actually do this. Sort of testing on mass. They're taken up with other work but we do have those machines to so we would have to create a manufacturing facility with over controls there that we just don't have at the moment so that's some questions from grownups but we're also getting heaps of questions from kids and we've covered a few over the last few episodes but let's keep doing that. Clara has sent this in from isolation at home she and her family have called symptoms. And they don't WanNa make other people seek Clara an league in Adelaide. Five two more. Why IS CORONA VIRUS? Started a really good question Clara and the reason. It's so bad. Is that first of all? It's very contagious. And by contagious. We mean how many people would spread to so if I've got the infection or let's say you had Clara. How many people could you infect around you and on average you in fact two or three people one for the time that you've got the virus that's actually quite a lot so if you've got the flu it's under twos maybe one and a half people but if it was a pretty mild infection then you wouldn't worry too much and eighty percent of people eight hundred ten people? It is actually fairly mild but in twenty percent of the people it gets severe. And that's because it locks into receptor in your long. That's a lock and key mechanism in your lung and can create a really bad lung disease. So it's not a smash a lung infection as your whole long reacts and almost go solid and you lose the ability to take air from the atmosphere breathe it in and get oxygen going into your bloodstream. And that's why people die of this. We have you feel better soon Clara. We've also got a question for six year old. Ezra get virus when you already have a different virus while we'll happen mix or something else. That's a really good question as a really clever question really no but if you were to get influenza if you were to get the flu at the same time as covered nineteen that's the disease caused by the virus. Sars virus then the likelihood is that they will add or multiply together and damage your lungs and damage your body much more than each individually and maybe much more than each so. It's not multiplying by to the effects could be multiplying by four or six. Because they work with each other to actually make your body worse. That's if you get the influenza or say the common cold it could make everything much worse with other things like say for example if you've got cancer diabetes and so on usually means that your immune system your ability to fight this office weaken so you're more likely to get an infection and more likely to be able to resist it very well and so your body if you like is distracted because it's taken up by fighting the cancer or fighting the diabetes then your body's distracted and you're more vulnerable more open to the infection. Hope that explains in language that Communicates Clearly Ezra but really good question. Sorry research groups all over the world looking for different ways to treat and KUA card. Nineteen and the W. H. O. The World Organization has just launched a mega trial of four of the most promising corona virus treatments. Norman what are they testing? So they're testing a variety of drugs testing this anti-malarial co Corcoran related drug called Haiku. Hydroxy chloroquine which may be a bit stronger. They're looking at HIV drugs which are anti viral anti retroviral drugs. Ones Le Vian routine over the has been some disappointing results. I think from those two. But they're going to have a look at them as well and maybe add an immune stimulant called Interferon Beta which helps to which helps to attack viruses. So in other words you might get three drugs working together which might affect the immune system and love noon system to attack. The virus in interferometer has got some nasty side effects which would probably have to monitor it. And then there's this other drug called Rim desert here which is a recent drought produced by a drug company called Gilead for another purpose for another virus and go to try that because they think they might get an effect with the SARS Cov too. So what they're going to do. It's it's not a randomized controlled trial they're gonNA allocate people to one or other of the drugs or the or usual care drug combinations registered as a trial and watch what happens to them as the go through so that it's not going to be a perfect trial but we don't have time for a perfect trial. We just go to be able to get people. On these study drugs we know on average. What percentage goes on to develop serious disease and needs to be ventilated and we know roughly what percentage will go onto dine. Can we developed from that and then we'll do comparisons between the different drug groups. How do they know that these drugs are ones that might work? The don't really so some of it is a bit theoretical but there have been some small pilot studies which suggests that there may be ineffective anti-malarial the not very good studies. But they're not good enough to say to everybody let's get onto Corcoran and there are side effects from from these drugs as well so you don't want to recommend them because it distracts from what might be the cure and your door to real mess out there. So you really want to know. Divided all up. There's some indications from small studies uncontrolled studies relatively uncontrolled studies. These drugs may have an effect. And I were GONNA do scale up the trial and see when you compare them in a reasonably scientific way which one standout if any because non may but we gotta get on and find out.

Anyway I'm talking more about the futures in the US. Of course. I'll have been talking a little bit more about that off light because it has been talk of the town has been moving quite extraordinarily. It's not a market that I focus my attention on or take people to try to teach people to try cryptocurrency because this volatility what we get that more frequently and now you understand why not try traditional markets and wiped away a couple years ago. To focus on crypto full time. I'm we're up on the close. We're up a thousand over thousand points on the E. Mini four point five percent. The and the s over spots are the s all the S. and P.

Stimulus is not a bad thing. As long as it doesn't lay damore printing of money now of course the US has been exercising. It's it's Apparent right to print money for a number of as a matter of fact it started in two thousand nine hundred ninety recently stopped on. I think it'd just find out the press guy So far as quantitive easing goes in the printing if further money I think it'll be very very interesting and potentially very dangerous if other countries to sort through the site because you know if other countries go out and so we've got lots of money then it's I don't know how they will react to that Americans have gotten away with it because they're America. Okay that the dollar's seemingly backed by their eyesight that the defence force. Because you know it's not it's not a gold pin currency anymore and oddly enough they feel to Conley battered if other countries would go out there and press now. This is not something. I'm an expert on. I'm just looking at this guy. Well if if you know if the market's wonderful further we interest rates more or less globally the silo. We haven't got that Fatah guy. What will the weapons that we had last global financial crisis? Well let me tell you what those weapons were. Those weapons were number one. We had interest rates to cut interest rates to make it easy for bank. Selanne which was alive all right. Let's go do those opportunity there number three well if all else guys to the bottom of the barrel print more money okay. So they used all three of those to push the most the longest bull.

It's it's hard to see what sort of weaponry that they have out there at the moment to continue to stimulate growth Markets Steinke forever. And it's going to be interesting so I said keeping a pretty you type in view. I suppose that everything's going to be okay but also the back of my mind. I am starting to read a little bit more When it comes to government policy Saudi Arabia doing on Titan little notice than I normally would just so that I can be ahead of the curve is more important to me than anything else brought now. Let's go throughout market and have a little little challenge. What's going on Bitcoin? Thousand seven hundred forty four dollars point two percent now.

"So as I mentioned Gerona. Brazilian plant native to the Amazon Basin. In Koran extract is made by proce into seeds into a powder it contains a range of stimulants such as Caffeine theobromine which is a bitter alkaloid of the Cacao plant and it's also direct however. It's mainly acts as a way to relax your muscles and is a cardiac stimulant and Grahn also boasts a number of antioxidants with its anti oxidant profile. Actually being very similar to that of green tea. And I'm sure you've heard of numerous benefits of incorporating green tea until diets. So let's start with the theories that Rauner helps with fat loss much like. Cla's was they will be basically looking about whether the live up to the hype so Grahn is a rich source of caffeine as just said and there is evidence to suggest that caffeine can help boost your metabolism from anywhere between three to eleven percent over twelve hours. So you'll bodies could be burning more calories at rest and what's also interesting that Gerona seeds are known for their high caffeine content around three to seven percent which is actually twice. That found in coffee. Beans Phen- is one of the most research substances in the world. And because of this were on a has not seen very much research because it contains a lot of caffeine itself. And that's what they've chosen to do the research on however it may be more effective caffeine not only because obviously has higher caffeine levels then coffee beans but also because Gerona contains other compounds that may also be beneficial for weight loss as bench before it contains small amounts of Theo brooming and also natural phenol. Anti-oxidants called Catechin which are present in lots of different dietary products. Like your your plants. Your fruits yakult sprees blueberries rapports and catechists are actually the major component of green tea extract and studies have shown that daily consumption of green tea containing six hundred ninety milligrams of Catechin for twelve. Weeks can help reduce body fat so as Catkins are in. Iran is also a suggest that it could help with a loss as well as study called modulator effects of Rauner on adipogenesis found that Grahn has an anti adipogenesis potential media counters adipogenesis which is the formation of fat cells from stem cells. And this is due to its ability to modulate micro Aurigny and genes that are related to this process. So micro army is small. Non Coding Arna that regulates gene expression and therefore biological processes in different tissues. It's also been found. Suppressor genes that aid fat cell production and promote genes that. Slow it down and the some evidence of that she suggests that increases fat oxidation which is the body's usage all fats for energy. Again though I would say that more evidence needs to be done to confirm this as most. The studies have been done on small subject. Pools with with limited amounts of people so a tooth needs to be more research conducted them once again. Studies have also tried to determine whether there's a link between Garonne and improved memory recalling cognitive function because `Grana contains high levels of caffeine. There's suggestions that might help reduce fatigue and they're starting to do more studies on the effect on your sort of cognitive function one. Such study had one hundred twenty nine eighteen to twenty four year olds and they were tasked complete a ten minute version of the cognitive demand battery and this includes a series of different tasks for them to complete and some of the group were taking a vitamin mineral supplement whilst others had a placebo so thirty minutes after having the drink whether it be a placebo or the vitamin MINERAL DRINK. They did six completions of the battery. So our testing and vitamin mineral `Grana combination resulted in improved toss performance in comparison to placebo both in terms of the speed. They complete the toss on the accuracy or performing them throughout so this suggests you know increased mental acuity and the ability to focus and hone your task more. It also showed that there was less mental fatigue when you had the wrong supplement associated extended task. Performance low doses. Grew on of course been found to improve your mood learning. And it's much like the Jin sang which is long been used in Chinese medicine to improve your memory and counteract stress to set shed sort of similar benefits as Jinxiang minutes not truly new tropic which are drugs supplements and other substances that improve cognitive function but from the tests that have been done it may help to energize to function regardless so `Grana has been associated with a number of other health benefits including improve skin condition. Heart health pain relief but again as I've mentioned before. More studies needs to be conducted on larger. Tempur to really conclude whether Rana is a miracle settlement but unfortunately again. We have time for this episode. So if you do want to look further and score on and his health benefits I strongly recommend taking a look. It's very similar properties as I said two green tea benefits so that might be another place to read about

Does Chocolate Give You a Happy High?
"We humans tend to like chocolate as of two thousand seventeen. The global chocolate market was valued at one hundred three billion dollars a year and growing but why eating chocolate makes us feel good but how chocolate contains several compounds that have been shown to add on the brain in myriad ways and most of them induce pleasure. It's also long been believed that Chocolate bestows heightened feelings of sexuality upon the eater apparently as tech ruler. Montezuma bought into this. He said to of drunk goblets full of chuckle auto unsweetened chocolate drink to boost his stamina and Libido there's also a widely held belief that chocolate can produce a euphoric feeling akin to a runner's high are understanding of euphoria producing compounds. Put together with the modern concept of addiction has even led some to believe that one can be a chocolate addict. Is that even possible? Can a person become addicted to chocolate? There's more than one compound found in chocolate. That could potentially make a person high for starters. The most widely used psychoactive drug in the world is found in chocolate caffeine. It produces a stimulating video logical effect by exciting the central nervous system which in turn increases heart rate and contracts muscles. It's a lot like the fight or flight. Response Caffeine acts on dopamine and a Denison receptors in the brain which then release respective pleasure producing chemicals. Chocolate also contains a compound. That's closely related to the active ingredient in cannabis. A cannabinoid called TETRAHYDROCANNABINOL. Nine fatty acids called cannabinoid hit the C. B. One and C two receptors found most predominantly in the frontal cortex and the parts of the brain responsible for motor function and memory when cannabinoid hit these receptors. A person starts to feel intoxicated and relaxed as a result. And as if that one two punch of psychoactive stimulant and depressant wasn't enough chocolate also packs another surprise fennel ethyl amine is often called the love drug since it releases same chemicals that are introduced into the human body. When love comes to call the compound produces a similar effect to the one produced by amphetamines and is classified as a hallucinogen. It's also aces. Releasing the pleasure producing chemicals dopamine and Serotonin a combination produces an exciting high much like the one generated by the designer drug. Ecstasy chocolate has all of the ingredients needed to make it a wonder drug by all rights. Eating a bar of chocolate should send you into orbit. So why isn't the stuff regulated by the FDA? Why aren't chocolate bars? Sold from locked cabinets behind the pharmacy counter. The truth is while there are indeed pleasure inducing and stimulating chemical compounds found in chocolate. The amount of most of these compounds are relatively small as a result of the energy drinks coffee cigarettes and yes chocolate that humans consume these days. Our brains become quite accustomed to the effects of drugs that release pleasure inducing chemicals compounds that act on receptors in the brain that released pleasure generating neurotransmitters like dopamine work. In two ways they either bind to the receptor causing it to release neurotransmitters or they bind to the site to prevent the reabsorption of those neurotransmitters. Either way there's a lot more of the chemical floating around in your bloodstream. This process is how chocolate or any other substance for that matter gets eater hi. It's also why chocolate doesn't have much of an effect on us. As the brain is exposed over and over to a barrage of compounds the number of receptors available for the compounds to bind to actually decreases and the ones that remain are less easily triggered. The reason for this reaction to drugs is the body's natural state of seeking equilibrium in other words. There's only supposed to be so much dopamine or other pleasure producing chemicals in the body. When hormones are released artificially by the compound in chocolate or any other drug. The bodies seeks balanced by shutting down the receptors released the hormones as a result we become desensitized to the effects of these compounds over time even if the compounds found in chocolate maybe two minute for some of us to get a chocolate happy high. The beloved food can still affect our happiness. The category of self interest that encompasses our pursuit of happiness. Hedonism definitely includes eating chocolate. We gain feelings of pleasure comfort and gratification from it the act of eating chocolate is hedonistic when we eat it. We're seeking pleasure in alleviating pain. Which are the hallmarks of hedonism as we've seen measuring the exact effect of chocolate on her happiness can be difficult most people however believed that such an effect exists in fact one. Canadian study examining the link between chocolate and happiness ended with no conclusive results because the control group that received no chocolate ended up raiding the refrigerator where the chocolate used the study was stored this bombing the experiment while scientists have yet to discover what causes the relationship between chocolate and happiness studies have managed to turn up correlations one two thousand seven study surveyed one thousand three hundred sixty seven respondents all men in their seventies with similar socioeconomic backgrounds and ask questions about their health that his faction in life and emotions like happiness and loneliness. They also snuck in a question that asked what kind of candy they preferred. Those who preferred chocolate showed lower frequencies of depression and loneliness and had a more optimistic outlook on life. Even science never quite figures out. What chocolate does to our moods? Does it really matter if eating chocolate makes you happy go for it?

"And then the long term monitoring and medication refills that can totally be done by your general veterinarian. I would say that the other reason why veterinarians or pet owners would choose to seek out the care of a specialist. An ophthalmologist would be as things just. Aren't going. Well, and I can't tell you that that's not uncommon. There are surely dogs. You don't respond to sort of traditional dry is therapy. And so many of my patients come in perhaps already on an appropriate tear stimulant. Maybe what I need to do is change the concentration so go with a higher strength medication or the ad in antibiotic we need to do a culture because they have a resistant bacterial overgrowth. There are lots of different techniques that we have as an ophthalmologist who can allow us to get a detailed examination of the pets is. So the same thing that you put your chin and look up down left and right at your ophthalmologists. We have that. So I look at all of my patients is microscopically, and I can tell whether or not their surfaces are happy and healthy or whether we need to change up our therapy. So I think plenty of reasons to seek out attention if you of an ophthalmologist if you don't feel like things are going. As well as they should. Or simply if you're a veterinarian would prefer to get you know, our opinion to get the latest and greatest information. I think that that is surely something that that I love to do on a daily basis. Thank you so much for taking the time to teach us about dry, and to know that there is treatment for it. One doubt..

"When you've been having bad dreams and nightmares junior unable to sleep. So that's meditation. One of the really really important ones that is public. Very obvious is the no caffeine, stimulants, pre workout. Molly coke ecstasy MDA. All of that stuff. I can't even think of any other like slag NAR terms not of the came. But none of it nothing. No, t no coffee like nothing. No caffeine, not even know diabetes. All of that. I was going to be stimulant free. That for me was, you know, the drug thing is it was it was easy because I wasn't necessarily addicted. I'm not exactly sure, but it made me absolutely so ill that there was no way that I was going to do it again at this point. I was kind of moving out of that phase. And I was kind of moving into like more clear state. I hadn't been drinking for a few years of that for maybe two years at that point. And I've talked about that before. But I just don't really drink. You know, I don't really enjoy. It wasn't really drinking and quitting guy pulls was easy. 'cause I was sick of that shit. I was sick of being on and off fucking diet pills for years. Years like hydroxy cut like all that shit. I was just over at in at this point. I was so unhappy with my body. I was like I didn't even care and then caffeine. I never really drank coffee or tea that much. I kind of did at the until I give myself a boost, but I was kind of dumb with that too and pre workout was making me fucking sick. So I was over him. So cutting out all of those stimulants and at this point in my life. I have tea like forcing Matic tea or coffee every once in a while, I'll have their non caffeinated drinks like the turmeric law or the cocoa more regularly. But I really don't drink caffeine. I really don't have a macho every once in a while. But I won't drink it very regularly and kind of be a special occasion. It will be when my body is nourished not on an empty stomach not before I'm working out, and it will be for like the right reasons 'cause I'm feeling it and not because it's like a habit. So I don't do any diet pills any stimulants any drugs. And I haven't for. The past, you know, couple years, and that is Ben you know, game changer, especially for my drills. I know that they don't really love the caffeine. I know obviously, they don't love the drugs. But I know they don't love the caffeine. So that has been something that I definitely have sworn to not do regular, and I don't. So if you're having any of these issues, I would suggest you know, kind of checking those areas of your life out to less sugar. This is one of the last ones. So having less sugar in my diet is a major key focusing my diet on more fat and less sugar. Which is you know, what I do? I check for fat and sugar now instead of calories and protein and all of that I focus on having less than ten grams in everything I eat. Ideally, it's under ten need to check.
