But you know who is said Garza Hohmann who who are you, and why should people pay any attention to what you have to say? Why don't know about the second question but the first question is that I'm. Well. Nutritionists running coach Author of two books and another one that I just finished. It's not out yet. PODCAST Vlogger I direct an ultra marathon. And I run a wellness center at at the Stanford in a nutritionist there and. father husband. That's that pretty much sums it all up. Yeah. You know our other things. That's a lot I do a lot of stuff which is i. think partly of what we're GonNa talk about today, but we'll see where that goes. Yeah I I was so disappointed in this year, we also come back out for the race would have been my. Third Time coming for the senior Costa Fifty K. which is. Without a doubt, my favorite ultra-marathon off there ever is Martin was or will be. I. Guess I can't say that definitively about I, I, can I mean there will never be a better race video It's such a cool race rents along the coast of the Mendocino coast like Northern California cliffs just absolutely stunningly beautiful and then through the redwoods and along this big river out of there, it's such a cool that and. But of course, like everything else it was canceled this year and I was sorry to Miss Miss that option is here. Yeah, I was I was a late hold out like we were getting the news about you know. Groups of fifty sounds like okay. I can do that because all space my runners out Mr groups of twenty five probably can do that. You know, and then finally it was a group of ten and I was like okay and I had to pull the plug and it was really. I took it way harder than thought it would take it. I was very bombed Tanaka the race and. It's come for some reason. The last couple of weeks I think I'm trying to nail down next year's date and everybody who signed up to have a free. You know they have a free entry into next. You basically postponed the race a year essentially, but I'm like drinking coffee out of my Mendocino Coast Fifty K. last few days I've been wearing the hat like. Just around surrounding myself with all things Mendocino. Miss you so much. You know it's It's such a fun. It's like the it's such a thing I look forward to every year and to not have it this year amongst every amidst everything else was just really a bummer. Yeah what what do you think was the most? Disappointing part about if you just about the about the race by cancelling. Yeah. Just because I love the it's such as you know for anybody who's run it they know but I keep the number on purpose. You know have quite a big wait list actually but I, keep the number very tight at one hundred fifty. Because it's really intimate fun and it's become would have been in its fifth year, but there's a lot of returners. So it becomes this thing where it's almost familial. You out there there's traditions that are being built now around the race 'cause it's now it's not in its first year now in its would have been in its fifth and so it's it's a new race but you can sort of see the establishment of traditions in and just seeing people again for the you know that one time per year and it's just it's just I greet everybody when they come. Across the finish line because I keep the numbers manageable and it's just it's just this fun. Fully positive no negative day and even people who drop I've never had a negative person. They always come back and I go I. Miss a stupid thing. You know they get a beer and they walk over to the beach you know like it just so it's all good and I've knock on Wood I've never had. A bad experience around. So it's just it's just a fun thing for me to do. It is a good addition to altering community. Thank you for putting that on. Yeah, my pleasure. All. Right. So we'RE NOT GONNA be talking about the racer. We're not even going to be talking about today we're talking about a productivity and kind of staying focused in the age of that I. Know I have I've worked from home for a long time and you've partially worked from home for a while and so I'm used to this whole working from home thing. But I'm hearing increasingly more from people who from friends and family and stuff who are getting growing increasingly frustrated with the work from home experience and. They're having they're having trouble with productivity. You're having focused missing You know their friends at work and their colleagues and and so even though we're wet like five months into this whole thing and most people are still working from home. We. Thought it'd be good to talk about productivity and to talk about. You know just kind of waste to stay focused and and be efficient but we're doing it in the framework of small steps because you're like the small stuff guy, you might be the og small sips guy. I don't know what are small steps. I'm pretty I'm pretty Oh, Jeez most. Well, my small steps are from most other small steps. So I'm there are people out there talking about micro steps, break everything into two minutes my specific approaches to train people how to set their own well. I'll put this way a small step for me as an is the mindset it's what you view something as small step. So it's not a fixed amount of time in the world. It's just for you if it's a small
10 Ways to Defund the Police Today
"If you haven't yet listened to yesterday's episode of the breakdown, this is really a two part series, and so I would encourage you to go back and listen to yesterday's episode where I break down the pushback that the movement to defend police is getting from some people. It's really rooted and misunderstanding. And introduce the work of the scholar Alex Towel in his book the end of policing. A brilliant must have book one of the most important books for this moment. And then I share Alex broke down ten ways that we could de-fund police, but increased public safety and yesterday I share the first five and today I wanna get to the final five. Step, number six is that we need to fund school wellness centers. Now, unsurprisingly, putting more people and more police rather in schools has only fueled the school to prison pipeline and what else did we really think they were going to do if they weren't going to be an arrest kids, police are doing in America schools exactly what we thought they do. Police officers don't have specialized training in adolescent or childhood development. They're not mental health experts. They're not social workers or psychologists. They're not school counselors are educators. They are literally law enforcement officers, normally whose primary training is in how to use a gun. Okay. And you put them in schools and what they do is they be arrest people. It is better safer and cheaper. If you fund school wellness centers in cities, like Minneapolis have started to experiment with replacing armed police officers with something called students, safety coaches who specialize in mental health and restorative justice in de Escalation and building positive relationships with students in one school arrest decreased by eighty percent arrest decreased by eight percent after implementing this program. We need in in defunding police and removing them out of schools and many school districts around the country, including Seattle, and Denver, and Minneapolis. If said, you know what we're moving the police out of our schools. And we need. When we remove those police, we need to fund school wellness centers, which takes me to step number seven. We need to dispatch dispute resolution experts to handle neighborhood and domestic conflicts listen to this. Domestic and. Neighborhood. Disputes. Are. Among. The single most common calls for law enforcement accounting for up to fifty percent of all calls in most areas. Now, the vast majority of those calls are not violent in most end without an arrest. But in some jurisdictions police listen to me, police are required to make an arrest in some of these calls. There's no evidence that these arrests generally reduced domestic violence and in fact, many domestic violence victims. Actually, don't call law enforcement at all because they are afraid of the legal repercussions. There is a better smarter response. What we need to do is to dispatch non law enforcement, first responders to respond to calls, involving disputes and domestic disturbances, social workers, and teams that are experts in working to escalate these disputes are less costly and more effective, actually resolving the conflicts. These crisis response teams would-be, specially trained and credentialed in the neighborhoods that they work in bats key. This already works in other countries all around the world. This is the primary method of intervention in France where trained mediators respond to the vast majority of calls involving interpersonal conflicts. In America though they send an officer or two officers or for or five or ten officers with guns, ready to shoot you or tasers you or spray you an arrest you in jail you. Other countries are already doing this better, which takes me to step number eight. We need to provide support not police for people who are experiencing homelessness. This is so simple and so important. Police spend an absurd amount of time in resources dealing with people experiencing homelessness, who has a result often become victims of unnecessary arrest in violence that only further disrupts their lives by creating specialized trained homelessness outreach units. We can reduce these harmful and pointless police confrontations and replace them with positive interactions that build community trust and help people find true stability.
Los Angeles Workers Walk Off The Job Monday In Strike For Black Lives
"Food workers ride share drivers, healthcare employees and others walked off their jobs across Los Angeles yesterday as part of the nationwide strike for black lives. Labor groups and unions organized many of the demonstrations, including one at the Sentinel, a skilled nursing and wellness center in Inglewood. That's where marquees Black works as a dietary staff member, he says. Engaging in protests like these helped keep issues like systemic racism in the public eye that way, perhaps things will change. How can we all live in peace with the violence? Keep going. We've been going through the violence and general generation's Marlon King like when is it going to stuff for the next generation? Other health care workers like Brenda Baraquio came out to support their black coworkers. She's from the Philippines and is a long term caregiver. She says. She sees many similarities between the broader black lives matter movement and other labor movements. I feel it black lives matter. It's because They know they understand the impact of systemic racism and everywhere they go school. Work, and I feel it to several other walk off strip place across the area yesterday, including a caravan protest down Crenshaw Boulevard in south L. A. The L, a Medical center in Santa Monica and graduate students at USC, among others.

Right so super excited about this session collapse. We can start with your childhood. What was it like growing up in your husband? And where did you grow up? I grew up near Hamburg Germany Two years old when I immigrated to Canada. and. So, what was it like growing up? I grew up in a very small city of about forty thousand people between Hambleton over. A city that has no post. Post secondary education, though virtually everybody after great thirteen, the Germans middle different from the Canadian like after great for you begin to specialize the either day in the General School, the Middle School until grade, ten or you early on Tuesday academic route Nicole was called high school, which is basically great, five hundred, thirteen, leading towards post secondary education. So virtually all my friends including myself degrade thirteen. We went somewhere else because there was no other place to study and I studied. At the university, of Munich for a year while it's actually not really quite true I enrolled in. In our school of law at the University of Munich, I went to one lecture and I thought that everybody else was like. Advanced compared to me and I decided to drive truck for year instead of going to university so I did that. And then I decided to study business administration and I enrolled at the University of Hamburg. I went to a few lectures. Derek got few credits and just couldn't wait for my ticket to leave. Germany, I was Prior to that thirteen years old spent a Lotta Time in France on exchange program. That's. That was A. That was very. Informative for me that Germany's a place that's really know for tunnel vision, and that's just very dramatic. Way is just like you basically almost like you just have blinders around yourself dislike like a horse. Pulling a cart in a way and that's in a way. That's the dramatic way of seeing you'd think of the way geographic on Germany's a wedge between East, and West Germany. That's just like the mind. Develop Sideway, though when I was thirteen years old I got the opportunity to do a debate in an exchange program. The French student and that was kind of my first. And my mind that there was also. A different wages. And absolutely loved it, and I remember like being We as a family are my host family I would go out with a with a fisherman on the little fisher boat are hardly tours and I thought to myself at the two year old. When I'm old. Enough I'M GONNA leave this place Germany, and I'm going to move to France on. We're GONNA become a fisherman. and they went over seventeen or eighteen years old.

Why Food Is More Powerful Medicine Than Drugs with Maggie Ward
"Tell us a little bit about this first patient that you've had that you wanted to share a little bit about what their struggle with a rate. You know these this case I picked it because it's fairly common to what we see. I mean we see a little bit of everything especially the ultra wellness center but it gets a kind of common theme especially for people that come to see me just burned nutritional nutritionist. So this woman she says sixty four year old woman who I've been working with for a while Dealing with a weight gain. That was one of her main concerns. I mean mild about twenty pounds overweight and it came on around menopause for her ambitious. Had a very long history of reflects had been onto our birthright Harper Harper now called reflects the whole industry of drugs and it's like the third most commonly prescribed class of drugs out there with the acid blocking drugs. Little Per Bay right and many you can get right now over the counter to some people are taking it. You know even without a doctor's prescription and You know sometimes needed for short term but unfortunately a lot of people have been these medications a long time and I think you know we see the the negative impact that so much at our center so she in a shed a long history of the reflex in also dealing with lower energy She's been on many diets which we hear so often people come to us trying many many different things in the common theme here as the way beating. This wasn't sustainable. And obviously we use the word. Diet you know just to kind of have that language. But I really don't like that word because I think we tend to think of food is lacking white. We're either on a diet off diet and initially might be asking people to walk a kind of a finer line with the food choices to get them dealing better winter but ultimately eating whole foods. Kind balancing those macronutrients eating every maybe four hours once you. You're eating during the day. I mean those are things that you Kinda WanNa make your lifestyle and that's ultimately what we really talked about is. How do you make the sustainable reflects cases so common? You know the number one reason that people go to the doctor in America is for digestive problems and reflexes. Right up there among them. So what are the causes that you see Maggie for Harper and reflex which is so common in our patient population in the country? I think it's multiple things. I mean from a dietary standpoint when we know a lot of the foods that can cause indigestion. Reflux dairy is a gluten so big one so we do a lot focusing on taking out those foods at might be more more irritant to the guide in front like allergies true allergies may be sensitivities were sensitivities. Exactly I mean. People do definitely have true allergies by at what we see is just different ways your immune system can react even intolerances where you just don't digest the food while dairies. A good example that were lactose eventually gives everyone issue and it can cause things that reflects in voting gas. So that stuff's subway gonNA mean obsolete working with providers doing more testing around breath testing and stool tests and get a sense of disposes. It's a very common thing that we see. What's this bio suit me as win your bacteria's at a balance in your body and also can often be in the wrong plates in your usual right right in your gut. Many people what we see they had small Hessel. Bow Overgrowth what we call the CBO bacteria and even used to move further up into the Upper Gi and doubling caused a lot of distress. They're normally normally. There's a lot of bacteria in your lower intestine. Your but not so much in your small intestine you've got twenty. Two feet of small intestine starts at the end of your stomach. In when the bacteria migrate up for different reasons motilal issues low magnesium strasse whatever you end up with this overgrowth of bugs in small intestine and someone. The food hits there it should be. It should be sterile. But when activity in there? They they go to town right. They go to town and they ferment. The starchy foods that you're eating and you get this thing called the food baby. Everybody knows that that is you eat. And you get this bloating. This come for That's called CBO. Which very horrible condition it. So many people suffer from right right and that's still people I mean. All bacteria produce gas. It's one thing it's down your coal in any current lease it when it's in your upper gi making 'cause a lot of discomfort so we see that a lot anything that is again a big a big issue with the reflux also mobility issues. I work with a lot of people talking about how you eat slowing down chewing food while doing some deep belly breathing before you eat. Takhar relax bagel nerve that runs along the whole digestive track. I think that goes a long way. I've had multiple people. Tell me just by slowing down and chewing. Better reflects gone on a lot of. What was your stress sympathetic? Nervous system is your fight or flight nervous system and one of the things does is shut down your digestive system because when you're running from a sabertooth tiger you don't want to be digesting your food. You want all the blood to build your muscles and and be able to run as fast. You can't so that's what happens when you eat under stress and this is this is why these practices. You're talking about deep breathing. Taking pause called. Take five take take five breasts before every meal and see what happens It's a very powerful reset in fact what was interesting when I was writing my book. Ultra metabolism. I found that there was this paper that showed that the sympathetic nervous system attack connects to the fat cells. So this is the stress response And and when you're stressed it inhibits the fat cells metabolism so literally slows your metabolism so being stressed literally Metabolism make you gain weight
Who Said Wellness Is A Recession-Proof Industry?
"Today. Welcome two days. Seven of the lockdown here in Malaysia. Seven more days to go hopefully have said that they will lock us down for another week or two if the numbers. Don't come down so fingers crossed. Those numbers do come down and I was having a chat just a couple of days ago. Someone who'd been laid off all been full load or being sent on unpaid leave whatever terminology you like to use. The fact is this is a person email space in the wellness industry. That has been laid off. Doesn't have a job today. Might have a job tomorrow next week next month. But right now doesn't have a job and one of the things he said to me really made me sort of think he said you know. I always thought that wellness would be recession. Proof Industry and clearly right now is not because a lot of people inspire wellness buys in fact the vast majority are out of a job right now or at least on limited pay right now so. I guess it's an interesting time to maybe ask ourselves the question. Do we really think we're living in in a working in a recession proof industry because I would say that maybe the concept of wellness is recession. Proof people always kind of care about wellness but wellness as an industry as a business. I don't think that can necessarily be seen as recession proof. And of course there's some people would say but this is different because this is directly related to close contact and so therefore spas have to be ruled out in this scenario but under normal economic relational downturn than spas are still. Okay maybe but I think what this shows is that we are a won't need something I've been saying for years now. Where a want not a need for the vast majority of people and you have to look at that list of essential services and products. Are we part of that list in your country of an essential service now? Probably not so. I think the reality is if we were to sit here and say wellness is the most important thing in the world. Rah Rah Rah which we do industry and look every industry. Doesn't it's understandable and is it an important concept long-term absolutely but if I can eat today. I'm more about my my wellness or my worried about eating. I think there's a lot of the things that take priority over a trip to our local spiral wellness center. So I think what you need to do coming out of these these ask yourself. Are you able to house is GonNa look out of these? Is it GONNA be the same industry that we left a few weeks ago a few months ago? I'm not sure the Wilby and I think a lot of people may be needed to recalibrate their expectations of what this industry is. And if you need something that is recession proof then. I'm not sure this is the industry. You would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below. What do you think is wellness as an industry
Visiting one of the world's tallest wooden skyscrapers in Vienna
"Is known for its ponderous imperial palaces but it's also leading the charge on contemporary architecture texture one example of this is Hojo Wien the eighty four to hightower in northeast. Vienna is seventy six percent word and is being lauded. Ah Lighthouse Project for the cause of sustainable living set to open this winter house apartments and offices as well as a hotel restaurant and and wellness center Alexi Korolyov reports. The concept of sustainable living has always been very popular in Australia. Both culturally and architecturally architecturally. But this man came Missouri Carolina. I'm architect in the office would pop the big has taken taken. This idea to new heights his latest project. Ho Wien is a skyscraper made of wood first of all the funny name. Yeah it's funny only name but did express the joy that we had to get the chance to play. This project always holds house quite easy. Wooden building wouldn't wouldn't high-rise house. I rise so why would I seem different reasons. The intangibles have some innovation nations energy materials. Etcetera that's the one recently the other reasons that we think that would is very important. Building material will vary Ekanayake remains. Still the building is not one hundred percents said No. I think we try to use every material where it's it's the. The best is easy that we have a core concrete and dress is because what is a material that this very good to resist whether it deserves. Some insulation qualities deserve renewable material and. That's one of the most important things that we try. Not Out to US material that we have to replace a lot of effort into real self growing in the marketing materials cereals and in a lot of articles that have already appeared about hoving. It says that it is the first such wooden skyscraper in the World Etcetera. I think a lot of skyscraper projects but it's true that it was one of the first one of the highest buildings that has been real constructed. Did Not plan to think they're fantastic. Plannings from Green in Australia from is swim in the states. But the thing it was the first project where you can say okay it can be. Built v very simple thing that's like playing rece- Children Galina still had some convincing to do before. The project was given the green light by the authorities. He even staged a fine to demonstrate the building's fire safety so if it burns notes only in this little little Bob and then it's much easier to to protect the rest of the House and strategy. He arrived authorities and they said okay. Sounds intelligent it's continue and the very important part of this project was because it was integrated in this concept that it should be multifunctional multifunctional project so that you can insert every single Taylor. Offices apartments fitness a clinic. Whatever uh-huh multifunctionality is one of the most sustainable elements. You can fix this plan. And you think that this will be just one special project one of a monument to a visual audit thing that there will be more. I think the reason why we made this was not to make a monument. I think it was only by accident that they've been the highest skyscraper in this moment and it was not our goal. We've been surprised ourselves. Sal but the main goal was wanted to show at vote as the same possibilities like concrete or steel there so our goal was more kind of off. Sign that we can see. If we can build a high-rise then it should be easy to build normal housing project. I think this is from from four to eight to ten floors. What you have in the city normally for monocle in Vienna.

"We wanted to run shelters. I and we wanted to run food banks and all those things aren't bad things but what's the endgame all three of those things and it's definitely not not what we want to do so we think the wet end homelessness is to build housing and we've been on that trajectory for years and we just need homes. We don't need more shelters. Don't need more transitional husband. We need home food security. Food banks are the emergency room of food. <hes> security what's the preventive model and who's who's working on that and i want to talk to those people because i have a whole bunch ideas and henry has a whole bunch ideas about food security and our community has ideas about food security. I am what are the right wants to be working on. And how do you actually do that. We ran a soup kitchen and i hated every moment of it. I mean people got fed. Yes and and i'm thankful handful that we could feed people but it didn't help people in the long run we ran a food bank and the same issue didn't help people in the long run <hes> and the housing idea yeah that we kinda innovated <hes> we kinda started hosing. I and we didn't even know we were doing it but we just house people because they were coming to us. Homeless okay well. I guess you need a house. Those kinds of ideas i think are going to change how we deal with complex issues so as you think about those ideas you have for getting better looking at root causes at preventing some of these issues in our community <hes> what gives each of you hope as you look ahead on real excited i think <hes> about housing i think <hes> this <hes> bylaw change that we saw <hes> hope that goes through soon here will be a game changer not just for us but anybody who wants to build affordable housing in a different way. We're not talking huge large buildings. We're talking about smaller buildings that that are much more socially engaged and probably healthier way to live <hes>. I'm really excited about where we're going with food security and and and we're the world's going around food food and <hes> edmonton is right at the forefront of that i think <hes> there's a lot of good ideas around food security in evanston healthcare and nervous about the hot one but i'm excited about the way we're doing it. I'm just you know it's such a huge issue and it's such a challenging issue on the delivery of healthcare. It's gonna take a lot more time for us to do that. One well and it's gonna be a hard <hes> animal to change but i think we'll just keep biting away away at the toes of that animal and and and and bring that change yet what gives me hope is that you can see more and more people even than your generation's just acting like the the way that we're doing things. That are the ways that should be. That's exactly what gives me hope because you. You don't have to fight with them. They already have the d._n._a. To do the things that need to be done you know we find with all although generation's probably in <unk> systems and i'm not talking about people because systems are are generational systems at the same time so basically this new new individuals vigils have the d._n._a. To move those systems and optimize them and in changing complete depending on what they wanna do but it seems like they they have it and and that it is it is very difficult to describe is very difficult to picture but you know when you're looking at a university students we have we had about <unk> sixty people from the university in placements in in our community center when you talk to them they have it and that it again that is the what gives people hope because you know that they are going to be the ones that are going to change the world from what it is to what needs to be an. I don't know if it's gonna take a long time. It could be but there are some changes can be almost almost if you're talking about the decades. I think it could be fairly short <unk> changes that can be implemented by them. So that's beautiful. We'll definitely include links to jasper place wellness center in <music> our show notes. Is there anything else you wanna share about what you do what you've been learning at jasper place for this news. Well i want to say okay. Thank you for inviting us to participate in.

In alberta <hes> <hes> would be great if more stories are shared because we know that we are not the only ones and we know so that there are many other people that want to start social enterprises and definitely they want to tackle the social and environmental issues and we want we wanna.

"They are going to solve a problem and he has to be something abasing community. It cannot be something that it is based. Just from from the outside we have to make sure that we put food on the ground and we understand what is happening on the ground and then we develop something that is going to be meaningful for edmonton so i think what he means to you mean and i think that it is very difficult to translate the meaning of a mission statement to everybody but for me is that <hes> we have the desire a to continuously see where these allenton and we want to solve those problems have to henry bean entrepreneurial and coming out social delicious from an entrepreneurial point of view. I think we see things differently and we see how to solve problems differently so we look at problems of homelessness or a poverty or lack of employment or lack of good healthcare or lack of good food security as an access issue but also is a as an opportunity eh to really grow in those sectors and not just doing it by government grants or or the way we always seem to have worked in those sectors and people pull that are vulnerable and living in poverty deserve the right to have programs and businesses and opportunities just like anybody else and and betrayed it and not differently just because of their poverty harvard so putting people to work helping them find a home and learning how to access food. Good healthcare is really meaningful work to us and really meaningful for our community. The one thing that i want to add is the difference between mission and vision is mission is the engine that will produce a lot of movement and motivation and that's why our mission is the in that way which means that all of our people are are in in the process of looking for solutions for problems internally and externally now division that we have that is something that we desire to accomplish. We want desire people to a <hes> attain a level of wellness so that it doesn't matter where they are at some maybe they have a less of health but they have good consistent housing and and they have good employment and maybe they have those student they are able to go into the medical clinic or or medical services and then they will increase their opportunity to be healthy and then the wellness factor joe's increase exponentially once we tackled the problem is holistic way instead of just one at a time thanks i i actually was going to ask you as a follow up to the mission statement. What is the change that you want to see in the world and henry. I think he did a really good good job starting to address that. Is there anything you want to add. A new. I think henry is very good. <hes> expressing <hes> where we wanna go as an organization and <hes> and the change asia we do want to make in our city indefinitely we wanna see <hes> our city healthy and well and that means housing that means employment that means food security security that means <hes> good access to good healthcare so you've already both mentioned a little bit about some of your social enterprises and and the services that you offer through jasper place wellness. I wonder if you could just take a minute to describe in a nutshell. What are some of the things that you do. What are some of the innovations that you've created a let me start from probably seven years ago when we with this stuff we were running our housing first program where we were moving some clients from one apartment to the uh up an apartment maybe because of an issue but because their family reintegrated into their lives and they need a beer apartments there were all let's see tuitions but the housing component it was a western seasonal for them and then we saw that to be able to serve our clients clients and to serve the landlords well when you connect with four different <hes> businesses but to organize that logistically was a challenge so we decided to start three businesses right away so i- junk removal company are moving company <hes> cleaning <hes> andraos keeping company and that was the start of redemptive developments all at the same time from that point. We did that internally but then we i i think it was a year later when we expanded to the nine organizations that were delivered delivering the housing first program and he was very successful and then what we saw is that the junk removal company was just thriving so we decided to go to the next level and to go to the next level we need funding thing and then we went and and one from the social enterprise fund to buy trucks <hes> increase <hes> increase our as social media ah in marketing awareness and what else did we buy with that money murray. Oh we bought some tricks trucks rock songs sorrento bands and and then <hes> equipment to for the moving company equipment for the cleaning company of vehicles <hes> <hes> and then from there and we saw that there was a need because we were doing junk removal we move many things through they waste management centre in edmonton and we saw a big problem with mattresses. Thousands of much is being <hes> just historic northstar but land field and they're in a big problem column. We talked to the c._d. They wanted to do something about it and then up. Some part of our team went to oakland to see a big mattress recycling company in the states when we came back with some ideas we are very small with a slip country and the brick and then the cd f._m. <hes> the put on r._f._p. And then we compete with four different companies we won the fbi and then the mattress recycling company which is the right now. We are the largest measures recycling company in alberta <hes> emerald award winning our winning company in alberta <hes> it just started at the moment i think the first year we did about fifty thousand every cycle cl- fifty thousand mattresses in the second year which is it was last year we did sixty eight thousand mattresses and i think that we are going to do probably seven seventy seventy two thousand without counting calgary because now we open calgary and our <hes> facility there so if we do all our sixteen thousand mattresses is year then is going to be about eighty six thousand mattresses or recycling mattresses in alberta so i think that's a short but that's how it happened wow and so through these social enterprises you're you're working to provide employment alternatives for people who might have a difficult time finding jobs elsewhere. I'm sure that in itself comes with its talent challenges and it's tensions. What are some some things you've learned. Along the way jason tensions you've faced when it comes to that social enterprise side of what you're doing a redemptive developments really has <hes> two missions in one is to alleviate alleviate poverty through employment for vulnerable people and the other mission is actually to build wealth for the organization. We're still working on that one <hes> seven or eight years later but it they might come <hes> eventually as we continue to grow but in point vulnerable people i it can be challenging. There's no doubt about it. Especially when you're running businesses this is that have that are for the public <hes> that have competition in our junk removal sector. It's very competitive and we're competing with large multinational accompanies and we're also have contracts and contracts with the city of edmonton to <hes> recycle matches meaning. We have to be open seven days as a week and we have to be able to <hes> produce <hes> the numbers that we've said that we produce not only in recycling but <hes> you know the amount of material that recycle michael so and you're doing that with vulnerable people can be very challenging but boat eighty percent of our workforce are vulnerable people which is a very high number. We've come to understand down looking at other social enterprises where it's probably the exact opposite is more like twenty percent of your workforce is vulnerable and eighty percent are people that aren't expensive savona ability when we've really focused on kind of three sectors so thirty percent of our workforce is newcomers to canada thirty percent of our workforce is youth and and thirty percent of our workforce or people coming primarily through our hosing program <hes> and they had their own vulnerabilities. There's a lot of addiction and mental illness in in in that category and <hes> can be very challenging on days. <hes> for our managers in each day is taking a challenge in and of itself <hes> you how people with <hes> having a severe mental health issues and addiction issues that are coming into the workplace <hes> and the the managers really really have to be careful how to manage that <hes> warehouse on certain days and who's in the warehouse and and catch the mood of the room and how it's going so definitely twenty. There's a tension there <hes> and then be profitable and get the product and serve customers well so we've built what we call our failure resume resume and it's quite extensive and growing constantly but we're proud of our failure resume and and we're we're we want to show the world that you know we fail and we fail and we make autonomous steaks and we're trying to make mistakes in favor of our employees and we don't always succeed at that either. We've learned the law. Working with multiple populations is very challenging as i said and it's costly <hes> live run businesses my whole life and to and our payrolls more than fifty percent of our income goes to payroll and that's on purpose <hes> sometimes i like it to be a lot lower so we <hes> aren't in the read all the time but you can't always always make that decision from a black and white <hes> financial bottom line picture when you got human beings as the primary focus of why you're running the business business and not profit as the primary reason you look at things differently so it's been very interesting very challenging and we're getting much better at it all all the time and <hes> as long as we continue to <hes> flunked our resume of failure and not hide it. I think would be vulnerable ourselves to other other the work world. What's an example of a failure on that resume that you own. We've learned from one of our first very first ones. This is our junk removal company at henry start mentioned in the very beginning and you know we thought well we just wanna take ten people out to junk removal and we would take two who three vehicles full of people and we'd show up there with a truck and a trailer and off we go into this apartment to remove the junk and you know we did that for several months and then you know it came to a point where we're having trouble making payroll and we're kind of why are we having so much trouble making payroll <hes> today we we take two people out to a junk removal and <hes> only one of those people are coming from that vulnerable side. We've been had people that were vulnerable. Driving driving our trucks and insurance got really expensive after a while after the accidents at piled up and it was unsafe and safety is got to be a primary thing for everybody so you know the good hearted intentions social work side of our brains. <hes> was having about a with <hes> the logical analytical side of brand's going. We need to make this safe when we need to make profitable. Thanks <hes> when we're talking about social social innovation we're often talking about people who are trying to understand and address really complex systems and the issues that you're working to to address housing health poverty employment barriers. These are complex. I'm sure you've bumped up against different barriers and gaps in the system that have been frustrating strating to you what are some examples of things you'd love to change in the system working within and ways that you're trying to approach that who <unk> who my big one is social procurement right now i think <hes> to know that cities and provinces municipalities governments are procuring billions of dollars worth of work every year and not taken into account that they can have a social procurement piece to their policy in that people experiencing homelessness snus or vulnerable people <hes> or social enterprises should have an opportunity to <hes> have a bit of an edge when it comes to procuring a the product or services so that's my big one right. Now i think the one that we are just swimming in trying to get out of it..

"Well, there was this the undercurrent from this meeting. I went to about lime. So I picked up a book and read through this book. And so got a an impression, how lime could be a multi symptom condition. And so I joined an organization called eyelids. And so the international lime associated disease is what it stands for. I leads to Sidey the and so when I joined eyelids, I got much deeper awareness of the chronic manifestations of lime and how it's an organism that can evade the immune system that can change its shape and size. Can go intracellular in the biggest takeaway, that I took is that if one's immune system is not an place in order to combat this infection. Then it can linger on. And so it mean system function in the, the impact that one's immune system has on clearing these microbes from one system. There's a different presentation. When you've got an acute raring lime presentation verses and ongoing chronic inflammatory response that could be stimulated by an immune system. That's not equipped to be clearing, these pathogens as well. They stick around and a low grade ongoing, like you got to attack in your foot that you just you don't see the tack if it's there and. The process is such where it might be lime. It could be other things in. So there's multiple triggers to an ongoing immune overactive immune response to pathogens and environmental exposures. And so this chronic inflammatory response lime is one if probably is the most common thing that can you be at the public's consciousness of this, this mystery illness. But it comes down to the person. And so you may have lime I could have linemen me right now, but my immune system's working well, and I'm containing it, and I don't feel any bell FEC from it. I've had a cousin of mine who got bit by tick, he got thirty days doxycycline, and he's been fine. I'm curious, just say, for example, that I do have lime I was bit by ticket. Some point in the past. I have lied and my immune system is strong. Is there any any evidence that man maybe I should get tested and go on some sort of drug to kill this bacteria, or is it something that may be on ever have problems or I won't have problems as long as I keep my immune system? Strong. We're a Petri dish for all sorts of micro-organisms. We're not alone where we've got one hundred Chilean microbes in us. So if you go on a witch hunt for every single microbe that could be bad. That's not the mentality in my mind. The lime itself does not there secreting poison. It's not secreting some inflammatory toxin. It's not like Ebola or anything like that. The lime is almost innocent bystander of than into the foreign invader, in your immune system recognizes it such in the acute setting yet, you it's rally up your immune system is trying to attack it. You get the characteristic rashes, and five response that the Lyme organism manages to reach some of the internal organs than yet, can be an ongoing problem. But for the most people if you've been exposed you treat it, and you feel well, and filling relative term and so talking with someone like me, or has a deeper focus on certain symptoms of what could be causing something's appropriate. But if you've got if you feel great, and you doing all the right things you feel good. I wouldn't go on witch-hunts trying to radically lime. I don't think that's the purpose. I think our immune systems there to keep things check is one life happens and various things can throw someone's immune system off balance that I like the focus in on my sessions of patients in its how functional medicine is truly unique in dealing with the, the manifestations of will say lime. But this chronic inflammatory response syndrome, for sure. And so focusing on a systemic point of view. It's functional medicines very well, suited to finding addressing the recognises supporting symptoms than get patients to a better place. And it sounds like from what you've said, over the course of our interview. The fact that functional medicine physicians look at the body, not as a single system, but his multiple systems, interacting, somebody who's trained as a functional medicine physician or thinks as a functional medicine physician when somebody comes in and says, hey, I've got joint pain, and I'm tired all the time and oh, yeah. Something else is going on that because they're looking at it from multiple systems, all interacting. The lightbulb goes on says, okay, something's going on. It might be line might be exposure to mold that might be exposure to certain types of food that may be your system doesn't systems, don't like so you're saying rather than saying, oh, here's a drug for the joint pain. Here's a drug for the upset stomach rather saying, let's look at the whole picture and figure out what if anything is causing all of these problems rather than just saying, here's a drug. You won't feel the problem anymore. Yeah. Some the. Very well exactly the mentality you mentioned mold. I don't know if you have an understanding of been mold is, is one of the worst things in the world. In terms of creating this chronic systemic response. And so Molde is definitely doesn't get any enough of the street cred out there. But I, I would even say mold more of a concern than lime when it comes to individuals in this chronic inflammatory response, and the set of symptoms that come from it for somebody who is listening to this. How can they limit their exposure to things like mold? There's a lot of information out there and how to protect yourself from lime with things like long pants not going into tall grass, etc. Etc. Checking yourself ticks, but you may be living or working in a place where there's lots and lots of bold, never even knowing it. So how can somebody take steps to become aware of that? That's going on. And maybe change it or change their environment. Well, I think that it doesn't take much to, to look around your home and see if you've got water damage, or mold and. You think of it from the health perspective. And this is it's one of those things I I gravitated towards my own story. My personal connection this world, and I think to show not briefly. It'd be helpful for a lot of folks, you know, my, my wife, Jacqueline is someone who is a very healthy person who was doing paleo diet and making her own cleaning products and using essential oils and not eating outs. Shoots active doing well in, then there is an event is usually trigger. There's those if your if your house compromise and you're not feeling well, there's usually some moment in time that you can start to think about it. And that's a lot of time. I focus on that with my patients, but for her, she was pregnant with our third child, and she got a really bad violent faction in so a lot of times, I use this analogy of. Your life is like a pot of really warm water that eventually, if something happens of noth- things happen, that he turns up up until it starts boiling over. And so she hid her boiling point when she got his viral, upper respiratory viral infection while pregnant and for women, especially you can lower your immune system bunk, and you don't want to kill the baby inside. And so this is a vulnerable time in she had the baby, the baby was fine. But there is a symptoms that happened over the next six months that just began setting in and so the symptoms for her were having I was really bad fatigue. Like fatigue that went beyond just carrying for three small kids and not getting much sleep. She was struggling to get bed at times, and stress is a big factor and all this stresses and immune modulator that can set that boiling point up and make things boil over to. So stress the infection the pact of the immune system fatigue sets in your you get into this thing called the cell danger response where your body shuts down on it south to preserve itself, and your body's trying to find things though, if you're immune system's compromised and you're trying to fight it off one arm. They mean systems kind of hamstrung in the other arm is doing all the candidate fight off these toxins and pathogens and Vader's caught this toxic soup stuff and molds, usually the most toxic thing in limes close second. And so my wife in metal six months, she started to get profound fatigue, brain fog. She started to get joint pain. She started to get petitions to get dizziness. She started to walk into certain buildings, and fill extremely are mentally sensitive and not feel well at all and other go and pick her up in. And so knowing that I. Had my wife is now a patient. And this is a an earlier time for me and my, my journey just been doing this for a year at the most. I knew noth- to know that mold was a factor that if you've got if you're environmentally sensitive, chemically sensitive. If you're usually set off by things a chance are that mold could be impactful. So we had a leak in our home that happened. We had. Leaking our bathroom tub that happened years ago. But that boiling point set in and all the stuff that she could contain before the properly functioning immune function. She couldn't anymore. So we did some testing. We found that shout. Urinary Mike O toxins mold gives off micro-toxins micro-toxins or what causes trouble from a systemic point of view. And we had to do some, some thorough cleaning of our home. We had to get rid of certain porous items and materials we had to get rid of all the carpets in our house. We had to put containment units up and take care of the mold and do special, you know, enzyme cleans and deep cleans, and, and we had to detox her. We had to get the multi axons out of our system. We had to yeah, it's like a sink that if the waters running, that's the inflammation, you need to have the drain going, that's detox. And we need to. Make sure that the water is not flowing over the side. And that's the when the symptoms happen when those inflammatory symptoms inflammation is the cause for just about every symptom that she had in just about every symptom. That most people have we need to support the people when symptom wise, we have to get to the root, so cleaning up the environment detoxing things out of her made a huge difference. Because of the mold, I think a, a lime exposure that she had some point manifested. And so she got most of the way better of getting the mold out. But then we found out about the line, and she ended up testing positive for four of the four of the band's on the CDC criteria and you need five to be considered lime. So, yes, I shouldn't have treated her, but we did and just treating that lime that wasn't as acute tick bite or. The bulls eye or the fever. She got much better. And so two matter of stabbing that balance and keeping their immune system intact, making sure the environment's clean so against the advice would be if you've got a set of systemic concerns. If you've got a point in time, where you can trace back to where it started. If you think about environmental history or exposure to water damage, or mold. Those are the, the signs that you coming in the talk to someone like me, or get a Nieve owl would be a good thing to do. We've had the good fortune to be talking with Dr David Lober of squirrel hill..

Here's a drug for the upset stomach rather saying, let's look at the whole picture and figure out what if anything is causing all these problems rather than just saying, here's a drug. You won't feel the problem anymore. Yeah. Some the. Very well exactly the mentality you mentioned mold. I don't know if you have an understanding of I've been mold is, is one of the worst things in the world. In terms of creating this chronic systemic response. And so Molde is definitely doesn't get any enough of the street cred out there. But I, I would even say mold more of a concern than lime when it comes to individuals in this chronic inflammatory response, and the set of symptoms that come from it for somebody who is listening to this. How can they limit their exposure to things like mold? There's a lot of information out there and how to protect yourself from lime with things like long pants not going into tall grass, etc. Etc. Checking yourself for ticks, but you may be living or working in a place where there's lots and lots of bold, never even knowing it. So how can somebody take steps to become aware of that? That's going on. And maybe change it or change their environment. Well, I think that it doesn't take much to, to look around your home and see if you've got water damage, or mold and. You think of it from the health perspective. And this is it's one of those things I gravitate towards my own story, my personal connection this world, and I think Sharry not briefly. It'd be helpful for a lot of folks, you know, my, my wife, Jacqueline is someone who is a very healthy person who was doing paleo diet and making her own cleaning products and using essential oils and not eating outs. Shoots active doing well. And then there was an event is usually trigger. There's those if your if your house compromise and you're not feeling well, there's usually some moment in time that you can start to think about it. And that's a lot of time. I focus on that with my patients, but for her, she was pregnant with our third child, and she got a really bad violent faction in so a lot of times, I use this analogy of. Life is like a pot of really warm water that eventually, if something happens of things happen that he turns up up until it starts boiling over. And so she hit her boiling point when she got this viral, upper respiratory viral infection while pregnant and for women, especially you see can lower your immune system bunk, and you don't want to kill the baby inside. And so this is a vulnerable time in she had the baby, the baby was fine. But there is a symptoms that happened over the next six months that just began setting in and so the symptoms for her were having I was really bad fatigue. Like fatigue that went beyond just carrying three small kids and not getting much sleep. She was struggling to get bed at times, and stress is a big factor and all this stresses and immune modulator that can set that boiling point up and make things boil over to. So stress the infection the pact of the immune system fatigue sets in your you get into this thing called the cell danger response for your body shuts down on it south to preserve itself, and your body's trying to find things, though, if your immune system's compromised and you're trying to fight it off one arm. They mean systems kind of hamstrung in the other arm is doing all the candidate fight off these toxins and pathogens and Vader's caught this toxic soup stuff and molds, usually the most toxic thing in limes close second. And so my wife in metal six months, she started to get profound fatigue, brain fog, she started to get joint pain. She started to get palpitations to get dizziness. She started to walk into certain buildings, and fill extremely are mentally sensitive and not feel well at all and other go and pick her up in. So knowing that I. Had my wife is now a patient. And this is a an earlier time for me and my, my journey just been doing this for a year at the most. I knew enough to know that mold was a factor that if you've got if you're environmentally sensitive, chemically sensitive. If you're usually set off by things a chance are that mold could be impactful. So we had a leak in our home that happened. We had. Leaking our bathroom tab that happened years ago. But that boiling point set in and all the stuff that she could contain before the properly functioning immune function. She couldn't anymore. So we did some testing. We found that shout. Urinary Mike O toxins mold gives off micro-toxins micro-toxins or what causes trouble from a systemic point of view. And we had to do some, some thorough cleaning of our home. We had to get rid of certain porous items and materials we had to get rid of all the carpets in our house. We had to put containment units up and take care of the mold and do special, you know, enzyme cleans deep cleans, and, and we had to detox her. We had to get the multi axons out of our system. We had to yeah, it's like a sink that if the waters running, that's the inflammation, you need to have the drain going, that's detox. And we need to. Make sure that the water is not flowing over the side. And that's the when the symptoms happen when those inflammatory symptoms inflammation is the cause for just about every symptom that she had in just about every symptom. That most people have we need to support the people when symptom wise, we have to get to the root, so cleaning up the environment detoxing things out of her made a huge difference. Because of the mold, I think a, a lime exposure that she had some point manifested. And so she got most of the way better of getting the mold out. But then we found out about the line, and she ended up testing positive for four of the four of the bands on the CD, CDC criteria and you need five to be considered lime. So, yes, I shouldn't have treated her, but we did and just treating that lime that wasn't as acute tick bite or. The bulls eye or the fever. She got much better..

"To save? That's really interesting. I wanna learn more about this how I can possibly incorporated. To practice that I'm in. Most of my colleagues, I think they're polite flea respectful for the transitions that I made most of them did not show significant interest, in wanting to know more. It's wasn't. It was completely. It's like the whole matrix example again, they're used to being in their world, and how they work in their mentality, especially those are specialists than there so far ingrained in the thinking along their particular organ system that to branch out and be a super generalist is what functional medicine is just like foreign concept. And so along the way of deathly, people that are more understanding and others and my experience, though. Unless you've got some inner drive to wanna change unless there's the that motivating force to make change than you just you keep doing what you know how to do. I know that many people go to a physician when they're sick or when they're ill. And I know the American physical Therapy Association with physical therapist is trying to get people to understand, at, hey, you know, maybe it's a good idea to go to your physical therapist once a year or so for a movement checkout to identify muscular skeletal problems before the problem becomes a problem, a movement impairments, is there a movement, or is there an idea in functional medicine that, hey, rather than getting patients who have kind of sought me out, because I don't look at it just as a single system that man, if we could get patients to come see their physician every year, more than just the general practice checkup. Hey commit. Hey, how you doing? Your blood test. Looks good. But more these sitting down for ninety minutes every year with your physician is that a goal with functional medicine medicine physicians. Why think there's, there's certain Newton in general. There's two kinds of patients that I see here. The more common case is patients who have been through the medical system for many years that have not been getting better. That's that their problems are not being addressed by the usual means and they're looking for a different approach in looking for a different way of getting to the root cause for why they're not feeling. Well, there's another mentality. And it's you know. It's not as strong, but I think it'd be great to make it stronger of individuals who feel great who are coming in, because they want to do everything possible to optimize theirself to be prevent preventative in, in their focus, and I think that, that is something that anyone can do it. Anytime into to look at laboratories, the look, it biomarkers that are not standard of care in the regular sense, but things that we can do now in functional medicine to dive deeper to look at your genetic risks for certain things like dementia comes the mind is a big one, and there's a is a great dock out there named AL Bredesen's, who I did some training with, who is focused on prevention of Alzheimer's. And so the way to prevent Alzheimer's surprise, surprise, is to eat right exercise, too. Reduce stress sleep, well, but also to balance microbiome, it's the make sure exposed to toxic metals. It's to make sure your hormones are not an okay range, but in an optimal range. It's looking at all your might conjure working in how you're voiding toxins in everyday life in, so those are the things those are those routes to the bad. We'd start decades ahead of time, especially if you've got a family history of certain conditioner risk, I think functional medicine evaluation. So the initial ones ninety minutes, but from there we can do sixty or thirty minute sessions and just wherever anyone is and what their goals are I can help. Help them facilitate them. We're talking with Dr David Lober. He is the owner and physician at squirrel hill family medicine. Wellness centre. He's given us a really good background on how he transitioned from being an internist to being a functional medicine. Position, one of the things or one of the reasons the main reason I wanted to talk to Dr Lober is because he was willing to talk to me, a little bit about Lyme disease and fill out, Pittsburgh, and moving deliver both based in the Pittsburgh area and anybody who follows the news knows that ticks growing problem. There's a variety of reasons environmental, etc. People say they are, and Pennsylvania happens to be the state with the most cases of Lyme disease. So I'm hoping Dr l'auberge willing to talk a little bit about Lyme disease. What people should be aware of not necessarily not getting outside, but steps you can take and also what to do or why you're concerned about it. So I know one of the things from my research that I've done is I've seen that they're kind of seems to be to camps in the medical community with lime disease. One camp says, yeah, it's a problem and the other camp says it isn't and I know just from looking and doing some research on it, it seems like some physicians believe that if you're bitten by a tick. You do a test if that test is negative. Don't worry about it. Another group says, well, you have to look deeper. There's a dish tests, and it may be more than just a simple dose of antibiotics to cure it because it appears from what some of the research is saying that it's something that can become a chronic disease that fitting right into the functional medicine model. It can affect many, many different systems. Well, I'm isn't an easy top. And I think lime. Is that foot that opens up a big door and behind that doors a whole nother way of thinking about why people can be feeling ill? So I think the best place to start is. I don't have the CDC guidelines in front of me. But as a general internists we were taught to. I think that approach to my mindset of lime the one that I started with in my training is good to review and then we can progress from there is to where I am now and so if lime disease we're taught to look for characteristic signs like flu like illness, the bull's eye rash. Sometimes if, if the lime manifested later on you can have more joint pains or one or threats are tick, your pains can be concerned. And it can proceed if it goes even further into neurologic disturbances things like Bell's palsy, you can also get concerns with lime card ideas, and heart block, and rid MIA'S. So lime is it's not a zebra, it's, it's on most people's thoughts around here. I think that it's not a terrible stretch to get docs, to consider it, especially if some of those symptoms are present. So some sort of notable neurologic symptoms. Or if you find that you have read me as Papa -tations, and you get an EKG, that's suggestive of any kind of heart block specialties is warranted. Enough to get conventionally minded doc to think about Lyme tick by ten February illness. Acute pain joints, having the bull's eye rash, obviously role incidence for you for even a purely treating and or testing. So when it comes to test doing the standard blood drawn getting a allies screen for lime if that's positive runs it through a western blot confirmatory tests that gives you a certain number of bans that may or may not presence that reflect certain proteins involved with the, the lime organism. And so there's the CDC notion that a certain amount of bans is suggestive of either an acute infection, the GM antibody or a more. I guess, chronic for lack of a better word ninety anybody response to typically GM manifests. Roughly about a month or so after you've been bitten. I think that's a common heirs. If you get a blood test, too, soon, it could be a false negative just because antibodies having kicked up yet. And then the is the more lasting immune response that you can have from exposure. So for some people if it's very nicely you get the cute signs are symptoms of Lyme. You do or don't get a confirmatory test, or you started impure treatment with doxycycline patient symptoms. Get better. Nice stay better. And so the issue comes where the controversy where the smoke is. Is that not everyone fits into that nice model? And so I remember distinctly I speaking at a conference when I was just starting out on functional medicine, I didn't some of these outreach conferences to local groups, and there was a local cancer group that I talked to and just opened up the Florida questions. And they asked me, what are your thoughts about Lyme disease like? No. Infection that you get and retreat with doxycycline and take care of it. And I could hear the I could see the eyebrows rolling in this group. These are some pretty progressive night at folks. So lime disease was not a huge focus of my function, as training think they gave us one lecture on in general, and I didn't look for lime disease is a treatment focus. It, it found me found me square in a face when I started talking to patients in a certain constellation of patients kept on coming in. And this constellation is one that I, I got to be quite familiar with on a personal side. I'll tell you about that a minute. But this, this constellation of people coming in to me they had the brain fog. They had ongoing joint pain for years, they would have chronic fatigue. It have trouble sleeping. Anxiety or depression. And I'm curious back before you had the additional training if they came to you, as an internist with all these symptoms. What would you have thought, what would you what would you? What would your first impression be or what would your second impression, be as far as what their illness was? Oh, sure if they had joint pain, we'll take a pain reliever. If you've got the Prussian, here's a antidepressant or goes to a psychiatrist, if you've got trying to fit t well, let's make sure you're not anemic or your thyroid. And as the tippety iceberg, they came in with multiple pools of those symptoms, which my understanding is for some people with lime. They can have that. What would your thoughts have been would have just been multiple different drugs? Of course. There wasn't a unifying factor for these constellation of symptoms. And I think that some of these symptoms can manifest in the way you live your life, and your exercise and your diet. But it just happens too often that the same kind of symptoms whose pictures were coming in to my, my practice, and I started off, I focused on improving the gut and the guts really central functional medicine. If you feel the gut, then you can have all these downstream benefits from an and that's for certainly true. But the people that I would do that on just did that with the diet and exercise and the right supplements based on testing. They didn't improve. Didn't feel any better. And initially when you're started what was your impression without do these things that in your trainings of should make the better? They weren't getting better. What were your thought it was like him? I in the right line of work that I learned enough in my questioning my, my training, especially early on. It's like just getting my feet wet and getting used to seem patience and. It just wasn't in my consciousness, yet to think that there's this chronic inflammatory response syndrome, which is a CRS Sirs, which can be at the root of a lot of these systemic type illnesses. And what was it the kind of lit the light bulb to a hey, this might be related to something as simple as a tick like. Well,.

"He was a influential UPS that got together, consortium of like minded individuals in the early nineteen nineties and came up with this this term in functional refers to. Functioning person functioning, well, functional medicine in so funky medicine the way I think of it is root cause medicine. It's looking at those, those important routes the soil, making sure that you have the right components to make the optimal human being in so focusing in on what an ideal diet for that person is, but they're microbes are like inside of them, how they inherited those microbes. There's one hundred trillion organisms that make up them hiker by on. That's very influential in us, and it's curious, I think what you said, there's something that deserves a little more focus. What's the right diet for an individual because I know that diet for many people as magic word people talk about hitting their MAC, rose, or they do this style of died, or that style of diet. And, you know, they're registered dieticians physicians. When you sit down with the patient just in general terms. How does one or somebody's listening? To this. How does one determine what is the optimal diet, or they're good foods, bad foods food, you never eat? I mean, how, how does one even begin to wrap their mind around all of this information some of its science some of it? Maybe not science. Yeah. So I think that there's some basic tenants that applied to just about everyone, and there's always exceptions. There's always variances that need closer attention that either someone like myself or dietitian than that can help zone in on a history and symptoms and story. The help cater dia to where you need to be, so the basics there's a really poignant book. That was influential for me that I read that I would suggest to anyone listening is a book called food rules by Michael pollen. It's a it's a quick read about an hour hour and a half at the most in it really dives to the core of how we should probably beating. So. Eating shouldn't food. Don't eat too much mostly plants. And I think that's a tenant that probably core to most people you having a predominantly plant based diet, I'm, I'm of the camp that I don't think it's entirely plant based. I do think we are on the voice. I do think we get certain nutrients better than others. So it this eating plants not too much, and to eat real food to eat food that isn't been created in a laboratory that it's food. That is ingredients that you can pronounce your grad, grandmother, would recognize food. It's not food if it comes from a car door window or were you pump gas? It's, it's, if it's advertised on TV it's not really something you should be eating probably either. And I'm curious Dow versus five or six years ago when you first started this journey, you're looking back five or six years ago or have you got all my God. I can't believe I ate that sort of thing. Oh every day. It's like it's amazing that I I, I literally my senior year of college. There's a movie called super size me that someone eight fast food every day for a month or two. It was a month. Yeah. I live that out. I remember coming home. Dad says what the? Heck happen, you it was like two hundred fifty pounds like no way scale it was two hundred fifty pounds. And so I, I know what that's like the feel that way. And I know the draw food, I know that you can food and sugar in particular is the most addictive force on the planet. And so if the right combination of. Not having the, the good relationships in live for, you know, being under a lot of stress or not having access to good food, even then. I mean, everyone should be able to buy local produce and try to eat in the prefer of the grocery store, keep away from packages, and process stuff in. That's ideally, if you can eat organic is much as possible if you can keep away from the stuff that's in boxes or bags, that's generally favorable thing to do. What I do every time I meet with somebody's to meet them where they're at to get a feel for where their diet is. I often will share my experience and story and we explore ways to optimize it if we can, you know, get people to eat less food as a whole to practice, intermittent fasting which is great exercise and lowering insulin and lowering the storage of adipose tissue and reducing inflammation. And you know helping out on that front is, is really key. And I think that words like paleo and vegan. That the they're good words are there like a compass that can guide you. But I think individually, there's certain foods that are going to fit best for each particular person, and then we'll we'll look to get you on the, the right ballpark and tweak things. And eventually people find out on their own a lot like we did, what's the best for them. And I'm curious all these things, you're, you're describing or something I was fortunate enough that I don't know if by accident or by choice. My parents kind of invested in me. I know my dad didn't like things that were sweet. So we always had natural peanut butter, but one of the things are describing with the sorts of things is it takes more time to prep, the food than the pull up to the gas station and get the prepackaged food. How do you approach that with your patients as far as well? You know, this is all great doctor Lober, but, you know, I, I work, sixty hours a week and my wife works fifty hours a week. And we're our kids are in little league and my daughter is playing soccer. How do you do you do you off? For them to kind of suggest small baby steps, or is it all or nothing? It was never all or nothing. I think any steps that anyone can take towards trying to better their nutrition and diet is where the step in. That's a pit fall that some people have that they think that well if I can't do this, I'm just not going to do it. And so that that's just the wrong mentality. I think it took me several years to get to a good place in. I can sit here and tell you about it. But I, I know it's not an overnight flip the switch thing for most people. So it's about making gradual changes. It's radically like those glitches overseeing the matrix. It's the glitches in the matrix, eventually, you can unplug from the matrix of our society. And some of the, the things that can Harris and connect us and poor ways. So. You make one change at a time. If you say, I'm not gonna eat drink pop, and that's probably the first step for people if you can get away from pop great. And then more don't we try and limit the snacks or try need less, grains, or carbs? No extra sugar you finding where the person is what they're willing to do. Changes is a something needs fostered in some people need those fans of change flamed, in time is a big constraint you not having the time or the resources to devote towards it. So that's a tough one. And specially if it's two working parents and family, you know, you can't devote as much time for those things. So that's when you gotta be you have a plan in place in have a meal plan have a game plan for the week. Make sure that you're on track of. Quick and easy. If you need to, but quick and easy a good way. There's these cool things like instant pots and slow cooker recipes, you really good salad that you can prep ahead of time. It it takes effort, no matter what. But finding the way to these get you on the right direction. I think is key and individually people will everyone it's followed through, if dia changes in my practices, generally felt a lot better. When I didn't we're talking with Dr David Lober of squirrel hill. Family wellness center. He's telling us about his journey into becoming a functional medicine physician, and you few minutes ago, you gave us a definition of functional medicine physician, but there are specific trainings or certifications that you can get to do this. You can't just wake up one day as a physician and say, a functional medicine physician or can you? I think it's you can. But it's not easy. You know, I can call my cellphone show medicine now in part because I've done some training I've gone through the institute for functional medicine. I've taken all their coursework in their exam to be considered a certified practitioner without that training. I didn't have the tools to really understand how to think differently in so there's some physicians who might be thinking differently right now. The might be actually doing a lot of these things, but they're, they're constrained, by managed care and time constraints. So there's a lot of great docks out there that I think wanna do something, different and know something different. But in their situation where they're at they're just aren't unpowered to, to do those changes. So it's about taking that leap in for me was like gradually niche, getting up to the edge, over course of three years getting ready to. Transition fully from my my hospital days to this approach in so everyone's in a different position. I think getting extra training is, is vital to understand the framework to think differently to apply the principles of understanding how organ systems worked together and not in silos, which is a theme that we were taught very extensively and it's good to have the physicians who are experts in their silos, because there's a time when you may need them. My goal is to keep you from ever having to need them to swim. Upstream, the figure out things ahead of time to the find out why there's imbalances and to try. You make those appropriate changes and understand how the body talks to each other. So it's a different framework. It's, it's thinking in systems biology, in how your gut can affect your skin or how your. Your bones can be impacted by your toxin exposures in the world. And so there's no ended the connections. And so it's this extra training, this mentality the way you think about how the systems of our body are connected, just which really brings functional medicine to, to the place, where it's at I know I've got one of the clients that, I work with, is an engineer. And when I talk about muscles and activation of muscles, and movement with him when we first started moving working together, he would think of it as an engineer, and I had to explain what the body is dynamic. It's not just unchanging systems. And now it's really beneficial for me because I've learned to think multiple ways with him. I'm curious with you with your path to functional medicine. I know you've got a lot of medical colleagues in bed school classmates, and former co workers when you communicate and talk with them now to, they say, oh, you've gone off to the deep deep end, or do they are they more likely.

There are certainly are other options.
