"And helping them design customized as the anti inflammatory diets how interesting well help us understand that so when we say inflammation foods that cause inflammation help us understand the specifics of what that that is because we know inflammation means but how does it presented someone's body and i love this question because inflammation can present itself in so many ways it it can affect how we look think feel an act. We can see it sometimes visibly. Certainly we can see inflammation. If we break something we can see that at that like i broke my arm last month and my i was very inflamed of course and you could see it visibly but that's not really the inflammation that i'm talking about. That information is helpful. That's what the body does to immobilize joinder or injury so they can he all but the inflammation that i'm talking about. Is this hidden chronic inflammation that his stomach it can show up anywhere from your head as migraines or headaches sinus issues show up in your chest as asthma or our high blood pressure or heart issues it can show up in your gut as as irritable bowel syndrome co <hes> constipation or diarrhea or even <hes> gas asan acid reflux digestive issues it can show up in your joints is arthritis or fibromyalgia. It can really show up anywhere. Almost any symptom can be tracked back to inflammation and if it can be tracked back to inflammation it can be influenced by what you are putting in your body and i think think that's so important for each one of us because regards how healthy we are if we continually have food inflammatory. We're not as healthy as we think for one. I'm pretty healthy. I like to think but as you're saying this. I'm like you know. I have a pretty my diets. I like to think is pretty healthy but for all i know i'm eating things i don't realize having inflammation or a cause inflammation within me right right right and did you know that obesity is now considered excessive inflammation really i did not know that so it's less about that that formula of calories in versus calories out that we've been taught and more about are the foods that or the other things that you're eating putting into your body are they causing you to become become inflamed and hold onto excess excess fluid and toxins in all sorts of things in your cells which can result in looking like your at <hes>. Wow obviously this is incredible because my listeners needs to go to your side to figure out what is was their diet the diet plan for them. Can you give us a little bit of example because i obviously want them to go. Visit your site but how how would someone even defined that is how would you even even decide like wow james so for me like real quickly i laid i have been doing a lot of crock bob and so i was i was i was has had a lot of instagram campaigns that i was being hired to do and i was like okay well. I have to look a certain way now. Look anyway so i was <hes> i just did the whole cabbage soup diet thing and and so i did all that and then continually obviously i felt really good. I felt really lean. I really i would eat. I guess it'd be more pesca -tarian now and so just fishes really what i eat but i found for myself that just my body felt lighter. If cleaner if felt else didn't feel bloated you know the whole aspect. I think anyone can relate with with being with the bloat itself but for me. I found that meets our wonderful for certain people but for me. I don't do that well with them. So if i do have any meets it's only turkey. I don't have any red meat. I don't have any chicken any other types of meat except except for fish and then of course turkey as needed. I suppose but i found for me as i the past few months. I really started to change at my my body. Just feels totally different. It feels lighter. It feels fills cleaner. I guess you'd say i love your example because right now there are so many fads like the paleo diet and the actions and and the no carbon low carb abdiaziz which are really pushing heavy heavy proteins and meat-based and look for you. That's exactly the opposite that's because for the longest time it was just my stomach would just be upset for days. What is what is wrong and so finally i just realized let's just try something different and i tried this before the pesca -tarian for awhile and it's like i didn't work and not really really that was like it's more. It's fish too long to cook. You can't meal prep with fish because it's you know it's harder to make it pretty much every day but i just finally realize is for myself that that was a big difference. So how would other people be able to kind of figure that out for themselves besides i'm assuming she's listening to your body well. It can be really super hard to figure it out for for yourself. I mean i could never have pulled lettuce out as one of my big for myself. So luckily we have some really advanced food sensitivity testing i work with a state of the art test called the mediator release test which i really believe is the gold standard of food sensitivity testing and and what it looks for is mediated release so the most famous mediator we all now is histamine. We know that if we have a bug bite or a being or poison navy and we'd take some antihistamine like benadryl that we can get some relief from that inflammation swelling from that injury but histamine is only one of eighty or more mediators. The body can release upon exposure to what it deems to be a threat so this particular task test one hundred and fifty foods jn twenty or thirty or so chemicals and additives that are in our food supply to really to really pinpoint what the problems are like for my son garlic. I mean an hour supposed to be one of the healthiest substances there are our exactly but for him it can it can really bring on a migraine for him and caused him a lot of pain. <hes> wow it's a win this with that test. I mean obviously it's not like you have to eat all the food and then you take tests in that test itself. It pinpoints the specifics accelerators that breaks down what what the inflammatory ingredient maybe it doesn't go into the ingredients because a test the whole foods foods because we don't. We don't eat portions of dutch yard. Extractions of foods should say okay. That's interesting and that's something if people want to work work with you then they'll be able to find information through that fear side with absolutely and then the wait for anyone to really get started is exactly what i talk about in my ted talk which is the first step is to try to remove artificial toxins and synthetic ingredients from your life because those can often be the culprit so we're looking at things. He's like artificial. <hes> synthetic sweeteners like aspartame or high fructose corn syrup. We're looking at food is in colors really. We shouldn't be eating any any of those. Those are derived from petroleum so anytime he sees a brightly colored foodstuff which is so common in our world start reading the ingredients labels. You'll see how many money things have added. Food is not only our foods but are cleaning products. Why would we put food coloring in laundry detergents dishwashing liquid. I don't understand oriented toothpaste or medications or supplements <hes> so that's that's how i suggest people start. I really like i'd never really thought the color of the additives of that and and things that we have in our in our life in our body are all around us. That's a really good point right. I mean we evolved on this planet to eat in process in thrive on the foods and then the organic matter that is on this planet but petroleum was never intended to be part of our diet exactly yeah we never mentioned just as for sure well elizabeth your it's been an absolute pleasure having on my show. Thank you so much for sharing your amazing story and your fantastic wisdom on inflammation commission. That's something i definitely going to research more and i'm sure my listeners are as well if they.

"Usual one night and i awoke the next morning blind. Am i right. I it was that fast and it was crazy crazy. I luckily my dad is a doctor so he sent me right away to an eye doctor who looked at me and said up ign- rightous which is inflammation of the optic nerve which absolutely what was happening but my father said i think there might be something more so he pulled some strings and he sent me right off to get an m._r._i. Which showed the scars from inflammation on my brain seventeen of them. Oh my gosh what are you serious my listeners m._s. or multiple sclerosis breath so multiple sclerosis autoimmune degenerative neurologic disease that affects approximately four hundred thousand americans that eighty percent of m._s. patients will be significantly disabled within ten years of diagnosis so here i was on the eve of my thirtieth birthday two weeks before my thirtieth birthday and by fortieth birthday they were telling me i was going to be in a wheelchair. Wow oh my gosh. I can't imagine what that's like. I mean like you said he literally just went to sleep. You've you've got his notice. Yes not only the diagnosis but the physical effects were horrendous because i i i make my living from reading and writing for the most part and when i awoke that day i couldn't make sense of the words on the page. How scary is that go because you you like you said you went to sleep. Woke up the next day warrant what happened for you from a psychological aspects serena had like i said devastating but glaucous through that absolutely devastating. I was freaked out. What am i going to do for a living. If i can't read and i can't right when i had gone to sleep that night i had been working on an article for the denver post and i had printed out right before we went to sleep and and read it over virk briefly in that okay. I need to change x y and z here and when i woke up i couldn't even read the print out emma. Remember what it was. I had to change and i still had a deadline. I had to turn it in unchanged knowing that there were things that i wasn't happy with but i couldn't identify those things anymore. Wow so psychologically. It was very very scary. How did you work through that because we all have those pivotal moments in her life and obviously this is a huge pivotal moment for you. How did you find the wherewithal or the tenacity to say. I'm going to have this be a stepping stone assembling block well actually it was my by then fiance who i suggested to me that maybe this might have something to do with my diet and the way i'd been eating and i had to admit he might have had a point because for for the whole decade of my twenties i'd been a girl on the golf living in my own apartment by myself and my only staple foods were crystal light diet cokes gummy bears okay. You want to take a look at that. Maybe we shouldn't have been surprised by the end of that decade that my body would have given out on me but i didn't really hadn't i mean i was raised by dr but doctors if you might know don't know anything about nutrition and don't really connect that to health so that wasn't topmost on my mind whereas my my then fiance now my husband of twenty years was a competitive athlete and he was into into the organic foods movement and cooking and all of these things that i had never really even explored before and that's when i really started studying will what is it's the connection between what we eat and how we feel and i looked at sources like the a._d._a. And the mayo clinic and i went on to become a natural path because of my interest in this and what i found is that there is a direct connection between the eat and how we feel yes yes sure from a psychological approach serotonin which is why it's a narrow neuro transmitter usually what he used for for depression people have depression you know they struggle with this air tonen and so what people don't realize is in your gut. That's where the majority of era tone ernest and so. It's so interesting just to hear you say that as well as what you are what you eat essentially and whatever you put into you into your gut is going to determine how it's disseminated how it's processed assists for the rest of her body and that is definitely one aspect of it. All is how our bodies function the more. I learn about the human body the more i'm constantly amazed at all the intricacies that happen all the other transmitters all of the <hes>. What's the word. I'm looking for chemical reactions that happen. I'm i'm an in order for us to have life and but that's only one function of it and what i'm really focused on. Now is the inflammation that comes from a lot of these chemicals really and other things that we put into our bodies without thinking of it just because our modern food supply has been so contaminated houses. Yes and you actually did a stock on that correct. I did it's called poisons in our everyday foods and people can watch that on youtube yep on they can go through ted or they can come through through my website and always find it there to her so what we'll do at the end of the show is will definitely give them this information so that they can listen to that as well and learn so much more because i know it's definitely important morton for each one of us to learn that now from this from from becoming an after path then you evolved to something else you start you weren't you. Didn't you patent something or you invented something. That actually came before. I got my degree. Oh but when my when my then fiance suggested that maybe food how to add part of had something to do you with what my condition was. I thought okay well. I need to start eating healthily more healthily and i didn't really know what that meant so i started watching the food network work and taking cooking classes and through all of the sources that i was studying what the conclusion i was coming to that whole foods or better than processed foods so okay well. I can eat a whole foods base diet except for. I don't know how to cook so once. I started learning how to cook. I realize we'll hope cooking with whole foods. All the time is really a time consuming. That's why convenience foods were invented out so uh fatigue is a major hallmark of m._s._n. Really all autoimmune issues because chronic inflammation is is frankly exhausting. I was inspired fire to simplify my cooking. I watched this late night infomercial. This guy was like look. I can put your whole meal on this one countertop apply hanson he puts in dry rice canned tomatoes and then he puts a metal grill a barbecue barbecue grill type great over it and then he puts chicken breasts and then he puts another metal grill and then he puts brownies on the top covers the whole thing with a dome plugs in and turns it on. I thought wow that's brilliant except for. I don't have those post-medal grades. I don't have that countertop appliance and i really don't care about the brownies. I went over to my oven and we just received a cast iron dutch oven as as a wedding gift and i threw some frozen fish fillets and some fresh herbs from our garden and some vegetables and i thought okay well that is countertop appliance hi. It's probably got pretty hot so i cranked up my oven to four hundred fifty degrees task the whole thing in there and in about half an hour just started to smell like dinner and that really really just became the default way that we cooked would come home and throw things into the pot and throw it in the oven and i didn't think that much about it to my college roommate came for a visit and at the end of the week. She asked me to teach her how to cook the way i cooked and i thought well you know you've seen me. Do it's pretty easy and she said i think there's a little more to it than that. So i sat down and i wrote a cookbook can then i spent five years trying to find a agent and a publisher to publish. It and i got the same response from oh. I don't know fifty or so publisher saying this is a great manuscript but no one's going to buy a cookbook from a nobody. You're not you don't own a restaurant. You don't have a cooking show. Nobody knows who you are and i thought well though is going to know who i am unless i have a cookbook thousand five. I took the plunge and i went ahead and and self published. Mike cookbook glorious pop meals. Anna turn out to be a really great decision because within the first month of publication i sold out my my entire first print run of two thousand copies great words. I was on the local bestsellers list thirteen weeks in a row. I crowd you oughta publicity listen and then <hes> in two thousand seven. I went ahead and sold the cookbook to random house and they republished it in two thousand nine and it still in print today okay and still selling. I've sold more than sixty thousand copies so far. That's amazing congratulations interesting when we have those i other late night and i think we've all had seen those late night. We leave and we see that going back to the aspect of your life was so devastated back in two thousand or nineteen ninety nine and then it continually evolve. I think that's a lesson that each one of us have is what do we do when life is just stripped away from us because life is going to happen. We have that natural process of grieving and then after that what we do and so i think this is such an inspirational story to hear that life doesn't have to quote end base off of life changing it. Just simply is different and so i'd love to hear how you evolve that now you're the expert and so funny. I'm sure now people are banging on your door to but yes. We write a book for us where we don't know you are well. It's interesting because all of this exploration into food and and how it affects our body has really evolved to become much more precise defined where i am looking at the inflammatory properties and sometimes even the healthiest foods can be inflammatory for certain people for my son for example his most inflammatory foods are broccoli lemon garlic really brightly inter site who would've thought for myself. Lettuce is one of my mother's inflammatory foods. Let us what could he more innocuous than lettuce but when i let us i can clearly see the correlation between how wobbly i am on my feet so now i really really focused on helping people identified their own personal food sensitivities in my nationwide dietary therapies clinic.

"What you surround yourself with you become. Have you ever noticed that when you're with a group of friends if someone is talking about somebody in a negative way the next thing you know everyone in that group is talking about that person and giving their own inside your feedback into what this person has done and then upon reflection you realize that your mood is now changed or conversely if you're in a allowed environment and you're trying to concentrate you find that your nervous system becomes agitated because the noise affects your body or have you ever had one of those reality t._v. shows on and nothing against them but had them on and there's lots of yelling and screaming and pretty soon it feels as if the energy in your house has changed the you are now becoming a little bit more dramatic or what you thought would have been a peaceful night of watching t._v. Now you're a little more agitated. It's the same concept when it comes to what we think about. If i love negative thoughts or negative situations in my life that then becomes comes what i think about i mean it'd be conscious thought but as i go on throughout my day if i haven't reset my mind or my thoughts those negative emotions or negative thoughts from previous earlier instances that day now influence what i'm doing what i think about and that's why many people have a lot of anxiety at night is because they have not reset himself or they've not been mindful of what they allow to rent head space or what they allow in their life. If you allow negative people if you allow oh unhealthy dynamics or loud people who sew discord in your life. You'll find that starts to be what you think about. You'll find that that influences you and pretty soon you you start to become the thing that you despised or did not want in your life in psychology we have what's called the law of the group. The law of the grew basically states that the people with whom you associate asia there's some commonality there and that commonality becomes greater and greater than that becomes the identity of that group or sometimes even the identity of yourself going back to the earlier example example when you think about some of your friends what is one of the characteristics or descriptions that you say about them. Are they. Someone who laughs a lot are they. Someone who encourages or are they someone someone who gossip salat are they busy body and when you look at situations like that you want to be very mindful that because there is a commonality or the law of the group in in your interactions with others and you wanna make sure that it's a healthy interaction because of knots that then becomes your characteristics personality trait and then you start to adapt to become come that thing so if it's a healthy law of the group and that's wonderful but if you find that it's not you need to pull yourself away from those onion x. because dot then starts to see how you think that starts to be how you interact in the world around you in pretty soon you become the thing that you initially didn't want to become. You're gonna hear fantastic interview in just a few minutes this with elizabeth your now she talks about food itself and how we become what we eat but i wanted us to look at this from a psychological or from a social psychology standpoint that that we also become what we allow our mind if i allow worry in my mind. I become a worried person if i allow healthy thoughts are healthy self affirmation into my mind. That is what i become. They come to be mindful of your surroundings. Be mindful of what you allow in your life because if you don't it will influence you and pretty soon you'll be changed..
