00:01
All right I am Dr. Tera Pfarr I am a chiropractor at Brown Family
00:05
Chiropractic and we are excited to start our lecture series off this year dr.
00:11
Rudy Byron of Byron Health and Healing is joining me tonight for anxiety
00:18
remedies for relaxation so this is our first lecture in this location in our
00:26
own clinic so we’re just really excited that I don’t that drive somewhere in the
00:29
sucky cold weather to another location release series so it’s kind of fun just
00:33
to hop on back here and have it all in one place so that’s super awesome little
00:38
things I want to touch on before we start this is a free lecture for anybody
00:43
who wants to come you free community lectures this is funded and hosted by a
00:48
non-profit I started called healthy spines initiative of Wisconsin where
00:52
we’re doing community health outreaches and providing chiropractic screen and
00:56
chiropractic care for low income or people who can’t afford it so if you can
01:00
donate it all I do have a donation bucket over there and a little bit more
01:04
information about my nonprofit you can also visit my website
01:15
www.patinsproject.com a 10 do shallow breathe get stressed and you could see
01:55
the shoulders rise in and so throughout the day and as I’m working in my
02:00
stressful busy day I’ve had today and or if a patient comes in frazzled they’re
02:05
late you know I’ve just got stuck at a train take a breath
02:10
breathe in through your nose out through your mouth
02:13
fill those lungs because it’s amazing with just oxygenating your body can do
02:19
for your mind body and spirit so as we know our breath is very much tied to how
02:25
we feel and so if we feel stressed we will notice that our breath becomes very
02:31
shallow we notice and if we notice we are feeling nice and relaxed we breathe
02:37
like a sleeping baby that kind of billowy puffy breath
02:41
through our abdomen right you’ve seen those babies sleep and their abdomens
02:45
rise and fall so again just take a moment center yourself and get a sense
02:50
of if you are in this relaxed state or not and if you are not relaxed a little
02:56
bit more take some big deep breaths because as you try to understand this
03:01
information we’re about to discuss tonight into your knowledge base the
03:05
more relaxed you are and the more you incorporate deep breathing the more it
03:10
will integrate into your memory so as we before we talk about stress and anxiety
03:15
the goal is to be relaxed and understand a better way to deal with it
03:20
because we know that stress if unchecked for long periods of time can cause
03:25
significant contributions to your symptoms in your conditions now there’s
03:30
a whole host of issues and us as primary care physicians see it every day so many
03:35
of them can be reduced or possibly reversed if we can get proper management
03:40
of that stress factor so what is stress we throw around that word all the time
03:46
of what does it really mean with dr. hans selye a that defined it as the
03:53
nonspecific response of the body to any demand for change now the first thing to
04:00
understand that it says it is a non specific response which means that is
04:05
not the same thing that happens every single time you get stressed for all
04:10
kinds of stress and that action can happen whenever your body perceives a
04:15
demand for change so you might be thinking hmmm this is still hard for me
04:20
to grasp my goal is to make sure that this is not
04:23
a stressful lecture for you guys so let’s look at this definition in another
04:28
way when your body has to respond to a demand for change meaning whenever you
04:35
feel that there’s a need for change your body has to go through some sort of
04:40
stress effect and you might be feeling a little overwhelmed right now because as
04:45
we look at this definition you might think my goodness isn’t life all about
04:50
change so is it that I’m doomed to be stressed all the time because I’m always
04:55
going to be demanded for change of something whether it is for my boss my
05:01
job my spouse my children my finances they always require change constantly
05:07
through life but please have hope there are solutions that we’re going to talk
05:11
about today so the first thing I want to explore with you is for you to
05:16
understand that it’s not just one type of stress that stress as we use it can
05:22
mean dis dis stress and distress is something negative right so if you have
05:27
a negative feeling about a situation or let’s say you didn’t get that job or
05:32
that you feel physically bad these are all types of dis stress in the body but
05:39
equally stressful even though we don’t talk about it that way is the demand for
05:43
change for something good in your life so think about getting that job think
05:48
about the stress and anxiety of that trends transition and making sure you’re
05:51
performing on that new position and even though you’re excited to get that
05:55
promotion there’s still some demand for change that your body has to meet to get
06:01
to that next level of that change so remember those two categories so
06:05
whenever you’re in a situation you always have to wonder how is that person
06:10
perceiving that stressful situation so I’m cluing you in on this big factor
06:16
that you have and the power that you have behind this perception of stress
06:20
now we look at that definition and you see it’s really about that demand for
06:25
change right on the body or our expectation because most of the time
06:30
when we are stressing it is some sort of expectation or
06:35
worried that we are boiling around in our brains and our minds or in our
06:39
hearts that caused the physical symptoms right I’ve been through Medical School
06:45
I’ve had the stress of getting through board exams and examinations my gut
06:50
feels it my body feels it my immune system feels it right how many of you
06:55
have gone through a stressful period of time just to finish so you could go on
06:58
vacation and then you get sick right so that shows that there’s the stress
07:02
connection mind-body connection with our perception of stress and how we handle
07:09
in their body so you see you have the ability to really control your world
07:14
based on how you see that world if you as you know it see the world as
07:19
metaphorically the half glass half glass empty then that demand for change will
07:26
increase quite a bit if you’re always just melancholia
07:29
today is gonna be awful you know that demand for stress on the body is going
07:34
to be exponential but for those people who have acceptance and compassion they
07:39
will find that they don’t need that demand for change that they will live
07:43
and they will give but they don’t always expect something so you you will find
07:50
that that the number of expectations you have likely relate to the amount of
07:56
stress you have in your life so this does not mean to lower your expectations
08:00
or your standards that’s not what I mean at all but I want you to continue to go
08:05
for your best in life but you have to have the expectation that it’s always
08:10
going to work out for me we know that it doesn’t always do that
08:13
right so having that acceptance that okay this is a situation I’m in this is
08:19
all I can do about it how can we move on and move forward from this situation and
08:23
that can help reduce the stress impact on the physical body so we’ve found that
08:29
the way you see the world is really how you’re going to feel have you ever been
08:34
around those people that just everything is awful and then you can just feel that
08:39
energy that they have they see the world it’s against them right and we don’t
08:45
want to feel that way so that’s what we’re gonna discuss today and the way
08:48
you see that world and how you feel will return well determine the body’s demand
08:54
for those changes so incorporating things like tolerance acceptance and
08:59
compassion all these things reduce your expectations and help reduce the
09:05
suffering related to those expectations that didn’t pan out the way you’ve
09:09
thought so let me give you a little example of this let’s imagine a scenario
09:15
when you’re sitting on a plane my mom’s in Costa Rica right now I sure
09:20
wish I was in Costa Rica right now so this I I fly quite frequently I like to
09:26
travel but imagine you’re on a plane at night and I love being on a plane at
09:31
night especially when you’re passing over the lights of the city you can
09:35
adjust it a little bit if you need to passing over the lights of the city and
09:40
you see all those twinkling lights and those little cars as you you drive and
09:45
move and I think wow what a wonderful world we live in and I get very
09:51
enlightened experiencing and just understanding my place within the
09:54
universe when I’m flying over big cities and seeing all the little life of below
09:59
me now I find that very grounding I find it very peaceful and I it kind of puts
10:04
things into perspective for me and then I look over at some of the people that
10:08
are sitting around me and I might see a young man gripping his arm dressed
10:12
pantsing just you can see his whole body is tense and you can know he’s thinking
10:17
oh my gosh are we going to die right now right and you can see it in his face his
10:22
whole facial structure his body his breath pattern show that he is in fear
10:28
mode and he is looking at that same beautiful scenery that I am seeing but
10:33
he sees it completely different than I do right and because he views it so
10:38
differently he feels that differently and then the body has asked for a demand
10:44
for change for him and then it’s and that is when he decides or
10:48
uses to have that different response on his body now we can choose how we
10:53
perceive our stress more than we think so let’s look at another example because
10:59
because really the tragic or the humorous is a matter of perspective
11:03
right now I try to make a habit of having some gratitude in my life every
11:09
day I wake up before I put my feet on this earth I say to myself for a few
11:14
minutes what am i grateful for this has been shown to be very very good for you
11:19
so I encourage you guys to start implementing this in your life so I
11:23
might be grateful for my family my husband my beautiful children but
11:28
sometimes I’m just grateful for my warm fuzzy blanket I’m rafting or the clean
11:32
air and breathing or you know the coffee that’s brewing in in the downstairs
11:38
kitchen at that moment something like a fuzzy carpet I get a walk on something
11:42
that may not be huge or divine but something that I’m just happy to have in
11:47
my life in that moment and if I really flood myself with all these positive
11:52
thoughts then I decided I’m going to start that day and I’m going to be happy
11:57
because look I’m looking at all the things I have to be grateful for in that
12:01
moment then I step out of my bed I walk towards the bathroom and I stub my big
12:07
toe on the corner of the wall right and in that moment I say well I stubbed my
12:13
toe but you know what it’s not a big deal I have so many other things to be
12:17
grateful for so let’s move on with my day and be happy and it kind of just
12:21
happens like that right now I’m going to describe another scenario for you that’s
12:25
very common in my life as well because I’m not perfect but when I look at the
12:30
world as something of a threat like what is gonna happen that day or what do I
12:34
have to get done that day or oh my goodness there are so many things I have
12:39
to do and so little time so those kinds of morning’s that I wake up to the alarm
12:44
screaming at me and suddenly this list of things goes off in my brain and that
12:48
all the things I need to accomplish that day kind of like this morning when I
12:52
woke up to do this whole lecture and then I would
12:55
to feel get all those feelings that of things I haven’t done and need to do
13:01
where do I need to go and get the kids ready for school and then I get into
13:05
this fear state right and when I get into this fear state I pop out of my bed
13:11
I jumped towards the bathroom because I’m already running late and I stub my
13:14
toe on the wall and then I feel like the world is against me and I’m gonna have a
13:18
bad day and I have all these things to accomplish and this is just the last
13:22
thing I need to start my day off with right so you can see how how you are
13:28
feeling can be translated in your your emotions and how you act for that day
13:34
it’s almost like my emotions leading up to that moment fed into me reacting to
13:38
that stubbed toe and so you really do have that power to change so many things
13:44
in your life by changing your perception just clouding your minds with positive
13:49
thoughts so you see the world a little differently as opposed to flooding it
13:54
with those negative thoughts so now let’s talk a little bit more about the
13:58
science and what kind of happens in the body because we do understand that
14:02
there’s a connection in the way we behave and to the way that our body
14:06
behaves so in our body there’s this gland that sits right above the kidney
14:11
it’s about a walnut size plant called your adrenal glands does anybody heard
14:14
of your adrenal gland some of my patients do yeah we’ve talked about it
14:18
so your adrenal glands have two parts the outer shell and the inner core now
14:24
the outer shell secretes or releases two key hormones that I want to talk about
14:29
cortisol and DHEA and the inner core releases two that you may know about
14:36
already norepinephrine and epinephrine you guys heard of those terms now you
14:41
might have heard them like the muse of the world of adrenaline have you heard
14:46
of the adrenaline rush and remember the base of that word is a dream
14:51
adrenaline adrenal so adrenaline or the adrenal glands activate when your body
14:57
perceives any sort of stress so historically it was a tiger right we
15:02
always talk about this tiger situation you see that Tiger your eyes see the
15:06
tiger your brain perceives that tiger it says oh no there is fear I have fear for
15:12
potential danger I must change my situation to get myself out of that
15:16
situation and it sends a signal so my brain and eyes perceive this it’s a
15:21
signal down to the adrenal glands and the adrenal glands and start to release
15:25
these hormones of survival in order to set aside the caste cascade of
15:30
everything else we must survive this moment right when the adrenals is not
15:35
overly activated from Krissie of stress the adrenal has a chance to function
15:39
normally every single day like we have them they’re not overly used hopefully
15:44
so it does not put out excess levels of these hormones and we can live a long
15:50
normal functioning life so remember that your body is designed to handle a
15:54
certain amount of stress in those situations but if it’s overwhelmed
15:58
constantly with this stress these adrenal systems we have the ability to
16:03
create this dysfunction in the body with the adrenal glands and it is normal to
16:09
have stress in our lives that’s why they’re there that’s why we have these
16:12
glands but the goal is not to have unnecessary stress so cortisol being a
16:19
stress hormone is actually coming out to protect you it does this because it
16:24
perceives that you must need something for the danger that you’re receiving so
16:28
it increases does anybody know what cortisol increases sugar and fat because
16:36
it assumes you need energy to run from that Tiger okay it puts you in rescue
16:42
mode and it works with that adrenaline to make sure that you can run and fight
16:46
and survive that tiger it also tries to soothe the body in a certain way because
16:52
it knows that if it kicks up at this storm in your body to fight the tiger or
16:58
do what it need to do it has a bit ability to calm you down as well it
17:02
directs the immune system and it actually directs all other hormones in
17:07
the body it takes over because the body has decided when your brain perceives
17:12
that stress it sees everything else needs to change to adjust to that
17:16
perceived danger now the opposites for the counterbalance to this
17:20
cortisol is DHEA have any of you heard of that
17:25
Samiha now DJ is another hormone that is released by the outer cortex of the
17:32
adrenal glands and it is what helps counterbalance that cortisol so cortisol
17:36
that stressor spots DHEA we kind of call the anti stress so remember cortisol
17:42
comes out whenever this stress arises and remember it could be that good
17:45
stress of got that job you know or I’m gonna have to work harder to demand for
17:51
that promotion or could it be a bad stress or any demand for a change in our
17:55
normal routine no DHEA once the cortisol comes out helps to counter that effect
18:01
so it is that anti stress hormone and actually it’s linked to anti aging um so
18:07
you can look at the levels of DHEA and the higher the numbers the better you
18:13
can think of it as they haven’t been used up trying to counterbalance the
18:16
cortisol that’s been released constantly and because the cortisol hasn’t come out
18:20
constantly there hasn’t been a ton of perceived stress so it tends to be a
18:25
calming type of hormone now bit of caution I don’t want you all to say Oh
18:29
DHEA is wonderful let me go to a health food store to start taking a ton of DHEA
18:34
because it has anti-aging benefits it doesn’t work out that way we have to
18:39
make sure and respect the body it has a certain balance that we want to achieve
18:44
and we all know that more something is not always better right so you always
18:49
want to make sure that you take a look at these with a qualified health care
18:52
professional to see if having DHEA supplementation is right for you now we
18:57
are constantly bombarded with things like poor sleep in this country noise
19:03
pollution air pollution diet the standard American diet or the
19:08
diet we call it anger sadness poor social relationship Facebook Likes
19:13
someone didn’t like my facebook you know post or whatever nutritional
19:17
deficiencies worry all these things whether they are physical or emotional
19:21
bombard us and the barn bombard our reserves for that demand for change and
19:27
you can see so much of your control has to do with your brain and proceed the
19:33
perception of that stress and how it sees things differently so that your
19:37
adrenal glands have that chance to rest sometime so this is what we’re gonna
19:40
talk about how we perceive that stress depicts whether that brain signals those
19:45
adrenal glands or not because we see what happens when we activate those
19:49
adrenal glands all the time you know we live in a culture of go go go we don’t
19:54
take vacations in America like Europe takes a month off every year you know so
19:58
our level of stress is completely different than it was 100 to 200 years
20:04
ago they didn’t have all this pesticides they spray on the food the air
20:07
pollutants the 40-hour work weeks you know they were out in nature more
20:13
connecting with the earth and it’s not just what we think in terms of burning
20:18
out but let’s look at some specific things when your brain commands your
20:22
adrenals and your adrenal remembers the conductor of all these other functions
20:27
in the body as long as your body is communicating well it tells your brain
20:31
okay this is what we decided based on what you think now this is what happens
20:36
when your dream of lands get activated too often remember we said that it
20:40
increases which ones oh well but what sugar and fat okay so it increases blood
20:51
sugar but it also can break down muscle for glutamine now glutamine is important
20:58
for lining repair so it’s trying to I mean this is a survival mode it’s trying
21:03
to help you with what it anticipates you will need in that state of stress and
21:08
remember it will increase body fat in case you need some storage in case you
21:13
haven’t eaten in a few days because back then it used to be a stress
21:17
response to starvation in case you haven’t so it is anticipating that maybe
21:25
you need that extra fuel for your system to survive those few days if you got
21:30
caught by that tiger and someone’s looking at it for you for a few days it
21:33
gives you everything you need to get to that survival mode until you can rest so
21:40
you may have some extra body fat if you’re constantly in a state of stress
21:45
and this is one of the reason why it’s so hard for people to lose weight when
21:49
they’re constantly in the state of stress and then also breaks down bone
21:53
for calcium now let’s look at this even more I want to see what else happens
21:57
when we’re just constantly in this state of adrenaline rush and go go go well if
22:02
you keep stressing if you keep thinking you need change more help is on the way
22:07
your adrenals will keep giving you what you asked for constantly they’re
22:11
constantly on which is what we see all the time in our practice so it reduces
22:15
your thyroid function it reduces your antibody production these are like
22:20
secret weapons in your immune system that help fight infection so it will
22:23
reduce your overall immunity especially in your guts I love talking
22:28
about the gut we should do a gut classroom your gut is so important to
22:32
your whole immune system and your whole and moon’ system starts to weaken and
22:36
we’ve seen autoimmune diseases very prevalent especially in the Midwest so
22:41
let’s see how those changes affect you for instance if you have prolonged
22:46
storage of fat because your adrenals are always on you can see how that will
22:51
cause weight issues that we have in our country right now
22:54
we can’t deny that right how about blood sugar imbalances at the adrenal glands
22:58
cause when it’s constantly activated blood sugar goes up this can explain why
23:03
we have diabetes and metabolic syndrome and is on the rise in our country how
23:08
about the loss of muscle and the under active thyroid that explains weight gain
23:12
but it also explains how we age much quicker now we injure must easier and we
23:18
have less longevity less good years of life my philosophy I said up right
23:23
today my goal in life is to live long and die short in our country right now
23:29
I’m seeing it constantly we are living short and dying long because of all of
23:34
the chronic issues we’re dealing with with our health and wellness and cancer
23:39
used to be a disease of seniors and we’re starting to see that wearing down
23:43
our bodies even earlier now we talked about the loss of bone and how that
23:48
explains earlier bone diseases we’re seeing and then we all know that when we
23:52
deplete our immune system from stress we get sicker easier so you can see how
23:57
this all works back and forth when your body helped but when you’re buying
24:01
health is better that helps your brain health and your adrenal health but if
24:05
your brain health is better and your perception of stress is better then that
24:09
helps your adrenal glands and can help your overall body so it’s very simple
24:14
when you think about this to start implementing this in your life today
24:19
before you leave here we could be all stressed about the ice storm that’s
24:23
probably coming but we could just take a breath break do the style take a deep
24:27
breath know that if we drive slowly and carefully we can a better chance of
24:34
getting home safely tonight right so what else can we do besides start to
24:39
change this mindset of how we perceive stress sleep is very important
24:45
sleeping seven to nine hours of night and practice relaxation techniques turn
24:49
off the computers turn off the TV that’s over stimulating you know for you’re
24:55
watching a scary movie that’s already sending you in the state of adrenaline
24:58
rush you know I tried to read a book for 20 minutes before I go to bed just to
25:03
kind calm my mind to calm my body and prepare me for that sleep and usually I
25:08
get to a pager I can’t even read anymore so I got to go to bed anyway anyways try
25:12
to write down things and make a to-do list if you’re worried that you won’t
25:16
remember something I mean I’ve woken up in the middle of the night and like oh
25:19
my god do that tomorrow right this I got it email that person you know so start
25:23
to write it down create checklists so you’re not constantly trying to keep it
25:26
in your brain and on that constant state of stress and remember that food is
25:31
information for your rina blends and this is really and it’s
25:36
so it’s really smart to eat breakfast and not those were fine foods like
25:40
processed bagels and cereals and doughnuts but and those are not the
25:45
ideal breakfast because they’re gonna spike your blood sugar and then your
25:47
adrenals are going to respond right but they really work those those kind of
25:52
Penta feeds really work your adrenal glands unnecessarily so eat more fruits
25:56
and vegetables and eat less sweets and sugary drinks how about eating protein
26:01
with each meal to help regulate your blood sugar a little bit more we want to
26:04
limit caffeine and alcohol again because you tend to those tend to act as
26:08
stimulants in the body and tend to overwork the adrenal glands and last but
26:12
not least eat good fats yes I’m telling you to eat fat things like salmon fats
26:18
from nuts and seeds avocados and try to avoid things like fried foods tomorrow’s
26:24
Friday do not go to Friday night fish fry and all those bad fats you can read
26:28
labels if it says trans fats not good and remember how you think and how you
26:36
and feel absolutely determines how your adrenal glands behave long-term so think
26:44
about how adjusting how you perceive that world so you can be in that same
26:49
world but start seeing things differently
26:51
remember I’m hoping that not that you’re not only incorporating that deep
26:56
breathing techniques to help your drina’s in your brain by not seeing such
27:00
a stressful state in the world but you’re actively incorporating daily eye
27:05
things to find peace with yourself and in this world whether you’re doing it
27:09
through tolerance and acceptance and compassion and and to end this I’d like
27:15
for my portion and I like to quote the words of a very relaxed man who lived
27:20
the wonderful age of 100 George Burns he’s a comedian
27:25
anybody know him he said if you ask what the single most important key to
27:30
longevity I would have to say is avoiding worry stress and tension and if
27:37
you didn’t ask me I’d still have to say it so he understood that a big part of
27:42
this health was just happy a different perspective so I hope that
27:46
you have the ability to look at your life make those stressors turn it to
27:50
potential stressors and then no stressors because you have a different
27:54
way of looking at the world look at it look at the way you sleep the way you
27:59
move the way you manage your stress and a way to help yourself with your
28:03
condition or symptoms long-term thank you I’m gonna hand this over to dr.
28:07
Byron he’s gonna get into the nitty-gritty I had the fun card of just
28:12
some fun stuff we get to talk about so come on up hello again everyone I am dr.
28:25
Rudy Byron and I’m the position here at byron health and healing center it’s an
28:31
integrated medical practice it’s a lot of fun
28:35
I’ve been practicing integrative medicine now for about six years prior
28:40
to that practiced as a traditional physician for about twelve years and our
28:47
talked to my of course is centered around anxiety anxiety as you know is a
28:54
very common symptom in our society it’s extremely common it’s one of the most
28:59
common symptoms that I see in my practice so this discussion is very much
29:05
necessary for us as a matter of fact we off we have a huddle myself dr. Brown
29:11
and dr. Farr huddle up at the beginning of the year to discuss what we’re going
29:16
to talk about and primarily those those discussions or the subjects I should say
29:20
stem from what our patients come in with and and anxiety was literally the first
29:26
subject that we thought of that that we would agree upon to talk about first
29:30
because in fact it’s probably the most common symptom that exists I would say
29:36
that’s number one and number two is probably coughing colds right among
29:41
among many other things of course in our practices so anxiety is front and center
29:46
for everyone in this room and in our society well anxiety dr. Park talked a
29:53
bit about the definition xiety essentially anxiety is a mood
29:59
disorder that is a is a response to something our body is responding to
30:06
something so it’s important for us to listen what is our with our body
30:12
responding to when we are driving a car and the engine light comes on how many
30:19
people ignore it right we’re not supposed to ignore that we don’t just
30:24
put tape over the warning light for the engine in the car and keep driving we
30:29
actually stop looking listen write saying do I hear any noise or sounds
30:33
under the under the hood are the brakes working as a car starting right don’t
30:38
have enough gas etc anxiety is real it’s our body’s way of speaking to us there
30:46
are books written about love languages right the love language well what how
30:51
does our body speak to us it speaks to us through our senses and our feelings
30:56
it’s important for us to pay attention to those our body is always right it
31:01
will never guide us in the wrong direction we may not want to listen to
31:05
it but we should definitely pay attention the this talk tonight really
31:14
this presentation is really about the quote unquote human perspective on this
31:19
on this subject mood disorders of course such as anxiety have a direct impact on
31:29
our behavior it causes us to feel impulsive causes us to feel scared as
31:36
dr. dr. farm mentioned earlier it affects our gut right when we’re when
31:40
we’re anxious our body could care less about digesting our food in fact we
31:44
typically cannot digest our food right and walk around with the not type
31:48
feeling in our stomach no thanks for that that meal I’m gonna pass on that it
31:54
affects our cognition our brain function and many of us will come to the doctor
31:58
and say Oh dr. Byron I’m having brain fog right say I can’t concentrate
32:03
so anxiety is literally front and center for us once again it’s an extremely
32:09
common complaint in the office when we talk
32:12
about the human perspective fear of anxiety let’s look at look at this from
32:19
the perspective of our physical being the physical human being there are
32:24
particular glands and organs that express anxiety very well and are kind
32:31
of the chiefs of the of the expression of anxiety for us the Chiefs to make
32:35
sure that warning light is lit for us on our quote-unquote human dashboard and
32:42
what are those organs and glands well we’re gonna we’re going to choose just a
32:46
couple tonight the first organ is act firstly we will talk about a gland
32:51
special gland that has a very important role with respect to anxiety that gland
32:59
is the thyroid gland the thyroid gland is called the gland of our emotions and
33:07
when we talk about emotions we’re talking about e – motion everybody said
33:14
with me E – motion that’s energy in motion energy
33:20
in motion our bodies are in part electrical beings we’re wearing part
33:26
electrical beings therefore we need energy we need electricity if the
33:30
voltage is low in our bodies our body will sound the alarm the engine light
33:35
will come on if our body has too much voltage if there’s a power surge again
33:40
the engine light will come on and say ok maybe we ought to go to the car dealer
33:45
and have them take a take a look at this the thyroid gland the thyroid gland is a
33:51
gland that’s located in our neck and it looks like a butterfly right flies like
33:58
a butterfly stings like a bee right butterfly when the butterflies flapping
34:03
its wings just right that butterfly is gracefully moving throughout its
34:08
environment the butterfly is very slow and sluggish we might say that butterfly
34:13
is sick a butterfly when it has a slow motion that’s indicative of
34:20
quote-unquote high ball thyroidism luggage thyroid low-voltage not enough
34:26
thyroid electricity electrical energy thyroid hormone electrical energy being
34:30
transmitted throughout the body the body will then say hey we don’t like this
34:35
feeling that’s like the car not having enough voltage the car is gonna not it’s
34:40
gonna shake a little bit not enough electricity what do we do we press on
34:43
the gas pedal a little bit you know let’s give it some more gas right our
34:47
body is sending us a signal our body will say oh I’m anxious I’m anxious some
34:51
why am i anxious perhaps it’s because I don’t have enough energy by ROI gland
34:57
again looks like what again a butterflies located in our neck there
35:02
there a special butterfly called the monarch butterfly correct monarch
35:08
butterfly I mean people know about monarch butterflies there are large
35:12
butterflies very very beautiful I mean people know they’re in the midst of
35:16
potentially becoming extinct they’re potentially becoming extinct why anybody
35:24
know that’s the pesticides that’s exactly right
35:29
they’re they they live their environment their primary environment is the
35:34
milkweed tree the milk question say tree but the milkweed and milkweed is dying
35:41
wise milkweed dying because of chemicals pesticides harmful pesticides and
35:47
chemicals that are unfortunately affecting the monarch butterflies
35:51
environment living environment well again our thyroid gland is what do we
35:56
say the gland of our emotions it looks just like a butterfly and in fact it is
36:02
susceptible to harmful chemicals why our thyroid gland is a reservoir of
36:09
electricity it holds electricity it stores
36:13
electricity here that means it has a highly negative charged negative in this
36:17
term means positive okay like negative means good I should say so it holds a
36:22
lot of electricity here negative charge attracts what kind of charge positive
36:28
negative charge attracts positive charges 99% of these toxins pesticides
36:35
herbicides environmental toxins toxic heavy metals
36:38
etc are positively charged that’s why if we get exposed to radiation what’s the
36:45
first land to go the thyroid gland right because the thyroid gland is literally
36:51
absorbing these toxins and if I Roy gland absorbs these toxins that sends us
36:56
a signal it’s not going to just sit back and take it it’s going to send us a
36:59
signal our voltage will go down and the dashboard light comes on says hey I’m
37:07
anxious something’s wrong you better I’m I don’t feel good I can’t sleep I can’t
37:11
eat I start gaining weight because I’m not I don’t have enough energy in motion
37:17
throughout the body got it so my emotions become affected
37:22
understood the there is a particular organ that is the chief of our emotions
37:36
there’s a particular organ that is the chief of our emotions we talked about a
37:40
gland that is the chief of our emotions there’s an organ the corollary organ
37:45
that plays that role in the body anybody know what that organ is want to take a
37:48
guess the I didn’t either that the brain very good guess however and the organ is
37:59
the liver the organ is the liver I’m surprising the ones that the heart right
38:04
emotions energy in motion but guess what the livers job is to protect the heart
38:11
this is primary chief job to protect the heart the liver the liver what’s the
38:18
root word of liver that shouldn’t be too hard
38:20
say it together very good how do we know we are alive how do we know we’re living
38:29
because we sense that we have a life we’re breathing we can touch feel
38:35
understood we sense we have these senses that we
38:39
are in fact limbering okay we’re living we have that sense we have sensations
38:45
the liver literally has it’s all finale and it will speak to us it will
38:52
say hey this is what’s going on that’s what’s going on deliver what’s special
38:57
about the liver the liver is a reservoir for especially our negative emotions
39:05
it holds positive emotions too but it’s especially important to know that it’s
39:09
the seat of our negative emotions so some of those negative emotions that dr.
39:14
Farr mentioned such as fear worry impulsivity phobias they get stored in
39:24
the liver the liver will hold them why because the liver is the number-one
39:30
organ of detoxification in the body and it’s not just detoxifying physical
39:37
substances it detoxifies and or stores or holes negative emotions as well and
39:44
that’s important to understand because when we’re for example going through a
39:51
quote-unquote detox detoxification many of us would begin to feel things that we
39:56
said oh my gosh where in the heck did that come from I haven’t felt that in a
39:59
long time where this headache this headache is occurring what the heck is
40:02
going on and and we may sometimes get angry be short-tempered with people feel
40:07
irritable etc that’s because the liver is releasing a lot of these negative
40:13
emotions as we undergo what we think is a physical detox to clean us out when
40:24
the liver gets exposed to quote-unquote toxins and or and or emotional negative
40:32
energy the liver will do its best it’s going to do its best to either detoxify
40:38
it if they can or if the liver gets tired because we’ve been eating too much
40:41
junk in the trunk liver says I’ve had enough liver has the
40:45
best friend his best friend is exactly what dr. Tara told you it was and that
40:51
liver delivers best friend is the adrenal glands the adrenal glands so
40:58
when the liver is struggling we’re exposed to really significant
41:02
stressors and Liber stick sends out a signal for anxiety says hey you get you
41:08
know get dr. pyar an anxious about this situation there’s a saber-toothed tiger
41:13
chasing him you shouldn’t just be up here chillin right eating bonbons get
41:17
him stressed get him moving okay the liver will then call upon his buddy
41:23
the adrenal glands and the adrenal glands will send adrenal in to the liver
41:29
to stop up any of that extra stress that the liver couldn’t handle why why would
41:35
the liver do that why would the liver call upon help from the adrenal glands
41:39
to send adrenaline in that scenario because we have to protect the heart and
41:44
the brain from junk in the trunk the body will do any and everything it can
41:49
to support us to keep us going to keep us alive so that we can fulfill the
41:55
purposes for which we are presently here on this planet so it’s important to
42:01
understand that these organs are working and tandem these organs and glands are
42:08
working in tandem to try to keep us healthy to keep our heart functioning
42:12
fully and they will continue to send signals to us to say hey something’s up
42:17
what are some of these quote unquote toxins that can have a direct impact on
42:24
the liver liver gets tired because it’s constantly detoxifying right besides has
42:31
to detoxify food environmental toxins household cleaning agents you know air
42:36
poor air rock driving behind a semi diesel truck that’s spewing out you know
42:42
it’s black smoke so one of the most common toxins that I see in the office
42:50
extremely common that has a direct impact on anxiety is copper toxicity
42:55
that is an excessive amount high amount of copper most people have never heard
43:01
of that before how many people have heard of copper toxicity very good about
43:06
half the half the hands came up in this room that is that is by far and away one
43:11
of the most reasons I see for anxiety in my office
43:16
what what’s the deal with copper copper is a mineral it’s a metal that is that
43:24
comes from the earth our body needs copper to utilize for the conduction of
43:31
electricity just like we have copper wire coming out of these electrical
43:35
ports copper wire is conducting electricity to our electronic devices
43:40
giving us power correct our body uses copper in the same way to conduct energy
43:45
again conducting energy because we need that copper is stored where and uh liver
43:52
again the all-important liver if for many reasons we get too much copper
43:59
stored in the body and there are many reasons for that if we get too much
44:03
copper stored in the body that copper will leak out either our body says hey
44:08
you got to go so we’re going to try to detox it out copper typically goes out
44:12
through our bowels in the urine and or hair or skin if our body is not able to
44:18
detoxify very well because we’re under quote-unquote stress then the body shuts
44:23
down the process of detoxification and causes that copper to go deep it will
44:29
dive deep into tissues and it will stay there but does our body like extra
44:34
copper floating around no if we put extra copper in that core that goes to
44:40
our electronic devices such as our cool iPads and iPhones what happens to that
44:45
computer or that fall when we turn it on with extra copper wire and then it blows
44:50
up right it’ll short-circuit that’s exactly what it does in our bodies it
44:55
goes to special tissues and special organs and literally blows them up
45:00
copper is a conductor of what electricity so it likes highly
45:07
electrical places in the body specifically places like the brain the
45:14
guts among many other places including female organs which we’re not going to
45:21
talk about today we’ll save that for another lecture the the point
45:25
here is that copper is feminine copper is a feminine mineral our females more
45:32
emotional than men yes so a woman will come in and say dr. Byron I don’t know
45:37
what’s going on but this PMS my husband just says you know I gotta I gotta go
45:42
see somebody so I’m coming to see you dr. B anxiety nervousness copper is
45:48
stimulating too much electrical power surge going to the emotional centers of
45:53
the body boom people blow up men and women by the way
45:57
I mean it just pick on our ladies so copper toxicity is a major major source
46:03
that most people are not familiar with it’s very common and very easily treated
46:09
and addressed the author of toxins all the toxins remember where is copper
46:17
stored again deliver which means we really must take care of our what
46:22
delivering if you are anxious if you’re anxious where you know somebody who’s
46:28
anxious think number one is deliver focus on the liver speak to the liver
46:36
the liver has a mind all it’s long it talks to you all the time talk back to
46:41
it say liver I love you thank you so much liver for for assisting me to live
46:45
my best life and the liver will appreciate you for it’s gonna work
46:49
harder give the liver what it once it needs love and we’re gonna talk about
46:53
some of those things at the end in addition other toxins that caused the
47:00
liver to have to work hard ultimately let leading to significant symptoms of
47:04
anxiety mercury high on the list very very high on the list when we look at
47:12
professionals that have a high depression rate and a high suicide rate
47:17
what’s the number one profession dentistry why because they make dental
47:24
amalgams out of mercury right it’s a large portion of the dental amalgam
47:31
dental fillings were referring to mercury is a major major toxin
47:37
people do not know that it’s extremely common everybody in this room has a
47:43
significant amount of mercury again we’re as much of that mercury sitting in
47:47
our livers in our livers and there was someone in there in the crowd here a
47:53
large 50,000 seating arena without a doubt liver
47:57
I’m the mercury uh in the teeth and she’s exactly right yes it’s in the
48:02
teeth and the dental fillings among many other places and there are many many
48:06
many ways to get exposed to mercury remember the old felt hats right the old
48:12
felt hats back in the day 1800s oh you guys don’t
48:18
remember that come on belt hats oh these hats they used to wear they may you know
48:23
they have the brim on them they made them with a lining specifically that led
48:31
to those people going mad and they called them Mad Hatter’s and they were
48:35
Mad Hatter’s because there was mercury lining those hats bells quote-unquote
48:40
brims and it led them to go crazy they became significant English that they
48:44
developed significant anxiety depression among other things the Mad Hatter’s the
48:51
liver is extremely important there are other there are other quote-unquote
48:56
agents that have an impact on the liver leading to substantial anxiety that most
49:01
people are not familiar with and that would be infectious agents infectious
49:05
agents such as viruses which virus absolutely love the liver that’s his
49:12
primary home and it’s in just about everybody liver here that agent is
49:17
epstein-barr virus epstein-barr virus everybody’s been exposed everybody has
49:23
it and if our immune systems are strong enough then we’re good we can suppress
49:28
it however epstein-barr is just sitting there waiting in the cut for a stressful
49:33
situation to occur and it will start wreaking havoc and the liver must keep
49:37
it in check the liver must keep it in check if the liver doesn’t can’t keep it
49:41
in check what will deliver do it will call upon his buddy adrenalin to come
49:45
and stop it up slap it around a little bit if there’s if
49:50
dreidel glams a week because we’ve been chronically stressed for a long time the
49:54
liver says okay gonna increase fat the livers just gonna
49:58
get develop more fat around it called fatty liver okay and why would it why
50:05
would the liver develop fat why would why would that why would that occur
50:08
because as dr. Tara said one of fats function is to store toxins so the liver
50:16
gets fat it says okay I’m just gonna put this EBV epstein-barr virus here I’m
50:20
gonna throw some mercury in there I’m gonna throw some dioxin in there I’m
50:23
gonna throw some copper in there okay looks good livers like hey I’m all I’m
50:27
all out of what I can do here can’t continue to detoxify this is this guys
50:31
over here drinking too much this guy’s this guy’s this guy has too much debt
50:35
this guy is working you know eight and eighty hours a week
50:40
right so now our body’s been telling us because we’re anxious our body’s been
50:44
telling us hey slow down get some rest get out of that day do you understand
50:49
but it’s dead we’re like nope gotta go gotta go gotta go gotta go so it’s very
50:55
very important if you don’t take care of your liver what happens it shrinks it
50:59
gets bad and it shrinks and then there’s a rat and we said the live heard what’s
51:02
the what’s the root word of liver to live if the liver is not functioning
51:06
then we all know what happens it’s a rat the liver holds our negative emotions as
51:14
we talked about earlier remember when the liver says all right I quit I’m done
51:19
and the patients struggling and they’re blessed enough to get a liver transplant
51:25
what happens what happens every single patient with the liver transplant has
51:32
some aspect of their personality change every single one of them has an aspect
51:39
of their personality that changes why because those emotions from that other
51:45
liver gets transferred to the new person do you understand the importance the
51:53
need to make sure that we’re doing these things that dr. Tara mentioned resting
51:59
meditation live in a clean lifestyle it’s extremely important it otherwise
52:06
our body is telling us that anxiety do not ignore it do not ignore the engine
52:11
life is one of the most common symptoms that exist in any of our doctors offices
52:25
there’s a condition when the liver says I’m done there’s a condition everyone if
52:31
you have a pen otherwise put it to memory there’s a condition called Nash
52:36
in a sh Nash and you’ll have to write this down because it’s a scientific term
52:45
Nash is an acronym for non state oh I’m sorry non-alcoholic steatohepatitis
52:59
non-alcoholic stay at OU ste ATO hepatitis so right away we see itís in
53:10
there for the liver right so inflammation of the liver inflammation
53:15
of the liver what a stay at amine fatty fatty liver right away non-alcoholic
53:22
means what is not from drinking alcohol 30 million people have that condition
53:28
most don’t know ninety percent of them don’t know thirty million people
53:33
I didn’t say three hundred I didn’t say three thousand I didn’t say three
53:37
hundred thousand said thirty million
53:43
that is that is a condition that leads to end-stage liver disease in stage
53:49
liver disease means that quiz okay when we talk about anxiety anxiety is an
53:55
early sign that the liver is under stress or duress pay attention to
54:03
anxiety and seek the root cause do not just put tape over the engine warning
54:09
light putting tape over the engine warning light is like saying
54:13
here let me pull out my prescription pad and take this xanax sometimes we need
54:19
there’s an X don’t get me wrong sometimes you need that but if you stop
54:23
there eventually the engine will fail because
54:26
it was not attended to medication we need sometimes I don’t get me wrong
54:32
remember I’m an MD I pull out the prescription pad occasionally because
54:36
sometimes people need the support so don’t get me wrong but some of that
54:42
medication is very dangerous some of that tape you put over and you can’t see
54:46
the engine light and this take that completely covers that red light and you
54:50
just kind of ignore it person will get hooked on it they’re like I’m depending
54:53
on this on this car to get me to work and I’m just going to keep going and
54:56
ignore this this engine light and a person will get hooked on their
54:59
medication right they get hooked on the medication now let’s go to Part B
55:04
anxiety Part B they get hooked on medication such as xanax etc I was the
55:12
medical director of a behavioral health clinic for several years for two years
55:16
actually three four three years these patients were hooked on medications like
55:21
xanax for example or clonazepam etc they were out there partying with it or
55:26
abusing it and they would end up being forced to come to the clinic for many
55:32
other reasons whether it was because they they had to do it to keep their job
55:35
or or the judicial system got in the way they said hey you better do this or jail
55:40
time etc so now as a physician I couldn’t prescribe that medication so
55:46
what did I prescribe what would physicians do in that scenario okay use
55:51
alternative medications for anxiety again all we’re doing is putting a patch
55:55
putting a patch on giving them a patch correct putting them but you got to do
55:59
something because they’re seriously anxious cannot function it adversely
56:04
affects activities of daily living what would we do we’ve one of the options we
56:09
have is to give them an antihistamine give them an antihistamine medication
56:16
what does histamine have to do with anxiety anybody know what does histamine
56:22
have to do with anxiety what do we know about histamine during the
56:27
elbows seasons spring and fall you may see many people doing what coughing
56:32
sniffing sneezing from what seasonal allergy seasonal allergies what happens
56:38
to histamine during that time histamine increases during that time and we say oh
56:45
you just take what what do you take an anti histamine what what’s anti which
56:50
had asked me what tip people typically take benadryl right among others
56:56
okay histamine and we just say yeah we just kind of go with the flow take an
57:04
antihistamine and don’t really think what is histamine okay histamine is a
57:09
neurotransmitter neuro nerve transmitter messenger so it’s a messenger for our
57:16
nervous system histamine is a neurotransmitter it is a messenger for
57:24
our nervous system so if histamine goes up what happens the nervous system what
57:30
happens to the nervous system it gets stimulated
57:33
it’s a stimulator for our nervous system if histamine goes up really high what
57:38
happens it gets really stimulated a person will get super anxious as a
57:43
matter of fact they can get paranoid okay when you take benadryl how do you
57:50
feel you feel super awake or or you feel what drowsy so what does it do calm you
57:57
down you get that histamine down and calms you down now what is the classic
58:02
symptom of somebody who has allergy symptoms it’s a classic symptom classic
58:10
nasal correct and what about nasal would it be more
58:13
descriptive nasal what nasal drip nasal drainage what we call that mucus runny
58:20
nose mucus right so when histamine goes up it does what – mucus it increases
58:28
mucus right it increases mucus what does that have to do with anything what does
58:32
it have to do with anything it increases mucus if I spill a bottle
58:39
of ketchup on a white pristine marble floor I need
58:44
to clean that up okay I’m clumsy I need to clean up that ketchup I just build on
58:50
this white marble floor first thing I’m going to do is get a mop and I’m gonna
58:55
do what with the mop wedeck’s I’m gonna wet them up
58:59
that’s mucus your wedding something okay your wedding something number two if I
59:06
clean that wet if I use that wet mop alone to clean the ketchup on the white
59:12
christine floor will it fully clean that floor no everybody said knowing they’re
59:18
100 percent correct what do you need to add to the mop you can’t add right a
59:26
cleanser correct you have to add a cleanser to clean that up
59:30
when mucus drift down in your mouth and don’t tell me it’s never dripped down in
59:34
your mouth and you’ve never tasted it drip down in your mouth what does it
59:39
taste like to taste salty taste salty why would the body use histamine to
59:47
increase mucus and add some salt to it remember we’re 70% saltwater we’re
59:55
seventy percent saltwater so the body will fall upon our own natural salt add
60:00
some mucus to it to clean junk in the trunk to clean toxins to detoxify if you
60:09
have an allergy you’ve got a toxin if we’re anxious the body will increase
60:15
histamine to try to mop up the place clean it up because we don’t have enough
60:20
key nutrients and protectors to do the job so the body has to revert to using
60:26
mucus through histamine and histamine our body’s trying to help us out but
60:31
it’s going to use this histamine to stimulate the nervous system which
60:38
subsequently leads to what symptom anxiety patient walks into office dr.
60:43
Byron I’m so nervous I’ll know what to do I can’t even sleep da da da da and
60:46
you’re talking fast and there you know fidgeting and and you’re talking about
60:50
this that and the other all at the same time how many times it happened in your
60:54
right right five times a day that’s exactly right and we wonder what’s going
61:00
on we have to listen stop look and listen to the body sit back and say what
61:06
is in my environment what am I putting in my body talk to the liver ask the
61:09
liver to reveal what’s going on the liver will talk to you it will reveal it
61:13
I was eating gluten-free waffle in my home couple years ago eating gluten-free
61:25
waffle and I noticed that I shouldn’t say I noticed I’m the first one awake in
61:30
my house when the in the kitchen preparing breakfast having a gluten-free
61:35
waffle among other things of course I have my cook veggies going everybody
61:38
should know that I got veggies going to so having my gluten-free waffle so I’m
61:43
making the mix and I noticed actually I didn’t notice my wife said hey she
61:49
doesn’t call me dr. B at home but she says hey dr. B you did you know you’re
61:54
coughin in the morning and I’m a typical guy what do I say of course not denied
62:00
right I’m like no I’m not coughing what are you talking about next morning oh my
62:06
gosh she’s right I’m coffee so I noticed that when I got near the waffle maker I
62:13
would cough I there wouldn’t even be any batter in the waffle maker but I would
62:18
cough right there now I could ignore that I could say oh
62:23
I’m just there’s nothing but I’m very perceptive I said something’s up
62:27
something’s up with this waffle maker it must be the waffle mix so it’s it looked
62:33
at the waffle mix it’s organic gluten free blah blah blah like hmm I can’t
62:38
figure this out so I call it upon one of my colleagues
62:41
had one of my colleagues take a look and she said oh dr. pyre come on why are you
62:47
really here this is too easy it was the buttermilk it was the
62:51
buttermilk my body was very sensitive to the buttermilk
62:54
I was coffee okay so what did I do get the gluten-free dairy-free version
63:02
guess what I could enjoy my waffle
63:06
my body was talking to me it was giving me a signal specifically to say hey stop
63:13
looking listen pay attention so that I don’t keep asking my liver to do the
63:19
work do you understand my liver had to break down that buttermilk it was not
63:23
happy said that’s enough enough enough dr. Bui miss I’m gonna make you coffee
63:26
okay and instead of just taking a cough medicine or taking a quote-unquote
63:31
supplement for it I look for the source okay I didn’t just say okay here here we
63:35
go let’s pitless let me take let me you know yeah keep it moving keep it moving
63:43
dr. B okay let’s transition to this transition to what can we do what can we
63:54
do about this anxiety so there’s a lot of this talk about you know breathing
63:58
well listening to our bodies working on detoxification what can we do so there
64:06
are lots of things lots of easy things in my office I’d like to say press the
64:11
easy button press the easy button what are some easy things we can do dr. Tara
64:15
mentioned several of those take deep breaths slow down pay attention live a
64:23
detoxification lifestyle you must always be in the mode of eating cleanly having
64:31
clean household environment paying special attention to the music you’re
64:37
listening to my daughter reminds me of that all the time because I’m from the
64:41
old school hip-hop era it’s like Doc Byron got to turn the
64:44
Dutchman’s coming dr. B pop it you got to turn that off Mike come on now thank
64:53
God for her cuz otherwise my liver would be pissed
65:00
many people asked me in the office I probably get this question once every
65:07
two to three days because anxiety is so common and so prevalent they asked me
65:11
what about CBD oil how many people have heard of CBD oil right just about all
65:16
the hands come up raise up in the room and see if you know I was relatively new
65:20
relatively new quote-unquote potential healing remedy and one thing I’m going
65:29
to say about that is that CBD oil definitely has some benefits for anxiety
65:36
definitely one of the ways that it works is it works
65:40
and by the way CBD oil for those of you who may not know is in the in the u.s.
65:46
at least is legal from the hemp plant so it’s the plant that it’s a cousin of
65:51
mayor of the marijuana plant that specifically produces something called
65:56
CBD oil cannabidiol oil and that’s one tiny
66:00
component of the many components chemical or vital chemical plant
66:06
components in that particular plant and so CBD oil has been found to help
66:13
regulate the body’s emotional responses and it acts as an adaptogen so that’s
66:20
adaptogenic effects which means that if our body needs to be stimulated it’ll
66:25
stimulate the emotions if the emotions are heightened already and we’re coming
66:30
to the doctor complaining of anxiety it will calm them down so CBD oil has that
66:36
kind of power it’s a it’s what I call a smart plant or some people say a smart
66:41
herb you really can’t mess it up but I want to say a couple important things
66:45
about CBD oil because many people are using it without having a full
66:50
understanding of some other aspects so CBD oil one very important thing to know
66:55
is that the hemp plant specifically is a bio accumulator of toxins that’s what it
67:03
does in nature it grabs onto toxins so what most people don’t know is
67:10
that CBD oil has a massive amount of toxins already so if you’re going to
67:16
embark upon using CBD oil you must be assured that it has been tested and or
67:23
purified from any toxins that’s extremely important otherwise for
67:29
examples in my office I’m not saying this because I read it on somebody’s
67:32
website on somebody’s blog I see it in the office because I test for it so
67:36
you’ll see SuperDuper high levels of aluminum for example you’ll see
67:40
massively high levels of cadmium and there it is right there oh yeah yeah but
67:44
no CBD oil for the last four years you know that cadmium through the roof see
67:49
video tobacco for example hemp plant super-high and cadmium super-high and
67:55
aluminum among other toxins remember in nature that’s what it does in the soil
68:00
you got a marijuana plant or a CBD or I’m sorry hemp plant that’s what it does
68:08
if bioaccumulation will it will magnetically attract the toxins so that
68:13
you can have good quality food around that got it so do your homework on that
68:20
do not just go for the okey doke just take somebody’s random CBD oil
68:24
supplement but it is I do want to say that it is very good and it’s a it’s a
68:29
reasonably good option when you’re using a good product a couple of other things
68:35
regarding beneficial ways to ways to improve anxiety many people are familiar
68:45
with some key nutrients key minerals such as magnesium right magnesium is
68:52
excellent magnesium magnesium has a calming effect on the body so you make a
68:58
muscle that’s calcium relax the muscle that’s magnesium got it contract calcium
69:09
relax magnesium for those of you who are old enough you remember the old school
69:15
commercial Calgon take me away right that’s magnesia
69:21
that’s magnesium doing this work F some salt baths right very
69:26
calming soothing that’s magnesium okay so magnesium can be beneficial it’s not
69:34
as precise as you think though some people quite frankly after testing in my
69:39
office is revealed that it’s not magnesium they need they actually need
69:42
cows and calcium actually has somewhat of a calming effect as well but
69:46
sometimes you just don’t know if you don’t have but if you don’t know if you
69:49
don’t have any testing available at least try some magnesium typically it
69:53
won’t hurt you in most cases and it’s better and especially taking it at night
69:58
before bedtime other things other things some key key nutrients number one stress
70:05
nutrient that in my office ninety-eight percent of people are low
70:10
but the data will tell you that eighty percent of Americans are low I can tell
70:15
you I’ve tested for the last six years ninety-eight percent of people in fact I
70:21
really want to say 99 percent cuz there are only three people in the last six
70:24
years we’ve had a normal level who weren’t already supplementing and that
70:27
is which which vitamin I’m sorry which mineral zinc zinc that was good guess
70:38
zinc zinc so for the most part that zinc responds to stress it’s especially
70:46
important for the adrenal glands it’s especially important for the adrenal
70:52
glands especially important for the liver and then you ask glad you asked
70:56
this question of course which foods are high in zinc right meat meat seafood be
71:04
careful with seafood because seafood contains quite a few toxins as well so
71:08
you got to proceed with caution there but meat does it doesn’t mean you have
71:11
to be a carnivore for example but just I’m just it’s more for sharing
71:15
information you don’t get a lot of zinc and plant products next we talked about
71:23
magnesium zinc calcium oils oils essential oils essential oils these days
71:33
in my opinion because of the changes that we’re seeing in our
71:37
environment these central oils are literally coming to the floor for us
71:41
they are a gift to us they’re a gift to help us deal with all this quote-unquote
71:46
stress I use oils literally every day multiple times a day including on my way
71:52
to work and on my way home oils are very very beneficial for us whether you
71:57
whether they’re used as simply something that’s fun or for therapeutic purposes I
72:03
think that in fact they are essential especially for the rise in problematic
72:09
conditions that we see in our environment so they’re really there to
72:12
help us so we should really become familiar I like to say get familiar with
72:18
the oils which oils what we use essential oils we use to keep us in
72:23
chill mode calming lavender among among many right lavender is very good and
72:30
there there are many others but lavender would be far and it would be by far and
72:34
away number one there are also there are also oils that have quote-unquote
72:42
adapted genic properties meaning you can’t go wrong there like CBD oil if you
72:47
have pure CBD oil or purify CBD oil there are some oils that function that
72:53
way such as copaiba among others copaiba actually has some CBD in it and again if
73:00
you use that from the perspective of a company that offers pure essential oils
73:04
then you’re good that’s another great way to utilize oils to assist in this
73:09
process of dealing with anxiety these are all practical things that you can do
73:14
to allow your body to send in messengers that body gets some lavender in it
73:20
you’re sending that liver some love you’re like yeah that livers like give
73:24
me some more sound like James Brown
73:28
see some some Pete I must be getting old or something else yeah so obviously last
73:37
but not least with anxiety either minimizing and/or avoiding alcohol
73:42
remember alcohols a toxin and it is what depressant so excessive alcohol can be
73:50
very problematic the liver has to detoxify it you often see this believe
73:56
it or not remember the liver is the seat of our negative emotions right so what
74:01
happens what happens person drinks you’ll see some people who get what
74:05
angry they get aggressive they want to fight right that’s the liver the liver
74:11
speaking is deliver although all of the ways that the livers been suppressed and
74:17
now coming out because because the alcohol numbs the nerve so now it just
74:21
starts talking screaming the avoid the excessive stimulants as well so you know
74:30
excessive coffee you know when I worked for that behavioral health program for
74:36
three years nearly every single person either came in with a big coffee mug or
74:42
Mountain Dew if they didn’t smoke they needed a stimulant they weren’t smoking
74:48
they didn’t have a coffee mug if they did not have Mountain Dew on the desk
74:55
they probably did not belong in the program and what what are they really
75:00
telling me what does their body telling me when they’re bringing that stuff in
75:03
that their lowing what energy that low energy is expressed as an emotion energy
75:11
in motion okay so if they were seeing me at byron health and healing clinic my
75:16
job would be to focus on assisting the process of detoxification with the
75:21
central theme of cleansing the liver subsequently boosting their energy
75:28
centers adrenals and thyroid got it that’s the ticket that’s the home run
75:34
hitter right there so again anxiety is extremely common
75:38
have to use tools are very well available to us do not
75:43
ignore your body stop look and listen and last but not least there are a
75:50
couple things on the table on the side there that we use in our practice very
75:57
frequently one is calls endocrine that’s the doTERRA product that’s a great
76:02
product for liver supports I always always always have 100% of my patients
76:09
wants to excuse me on some form of liver support and there are other other things
76:15
a liver is excellent as well that’s another product that’s a pirate health
76:20
and healing specific product that’s extremely good which reminds me another
76:24
source of anxiety that we did not talk about today we’re not going to talk
76:28
about it at any length but I just want to share that it is important for us and
76:32
that is EMF electromagnetic frequencies okay that’s another major major toxin
76:39
that’s relatively new to us over the last you know 15 to 20 years that’s
76:43
increasingly becoming worse and our body has to deal with that so again we’re not
76:47
going to talk about it now but again what can you do you got it you got to
76:50
develop some protective barriers to assist your body to address that there’s
76:57
a bottle of lavender over there as well I think I don’t know what we were
77:00
diffusing tonight so that is the ticket I don’t think I have anything else to
77:11
discuss so thank you for your attention especially with this with a subject such
77:15
as anxiety I mean you know kind of be a debbie downer type of subject but I’m
77:20
you know I get excited about that subject because there are easy tools to
77:25
use to fix it none of us should walk around with any significant anxiety is
77:29
too easy to address if we do really simple things stop look and listen to
77:34
your body and and use some of these tools that we have readily available
77:38
the vast majority of which are are extremely inexpensive some of which are
77:44
free that’s it thank you and welcome and go ahead you’re gonna say we were open
77:55
for questions that’s what I was gonna say to you
77:58
doctor yes yes like a shouldn’t routine should I just force myself to do it push
78:26
past it or should I have you like listening my body getting the sleep and
78:29
sleeping for 30 instead what’s the recommendation for that very good I like
78:37
to say at least from my response dr. Tara is to go with the flow your if your
78:43
body is calling upon the need for more rest you need more rest do not force it
78:49
listen to your body your body saying get the rest take the rest so that you can
78:53
heal that’s extreme it’s a time of healing and rejuvenation
78:57
so if our body is saying we’re tired we need to sleep more and you got to listen
79:02
to it and because it’s saying what it needs in that moment so I would take
79:05
definitely take more time to let your body heal in that time we wanted to add
79:10
something to you reminded me about the importance of the cycle for the liver
79:16
you know a women have menstrual cycle right all men have a site everybody has
79:23
a cycle the liver has a cycle so all of our organs and glands have a cycle the
79:29
livers time the liver has a time in which it sinks it does its best work
79:35
between 1:00 and 3:00 a.m. so if you’re waking up between 1:00 and 3:00 a.m.
79:40
again stop look and listen say hmm am I in my detoxing something extra and or do
79:48
I have some emotion that I’m not a that I’m not addressing such as resentment
79:52
anger frustration that’s the liver time we live near Milwaukee with Miller time
79:58
no no we just got a jokester over gotta bring you a game when we talk about
80:07
anxiety right you don’t want you don’t want to hear debbie downer
80:09
ha right I hear that multiple times a day is I can’t sleep and I say well what
80:15
time do you have trouble going to sleep they say no I could fall asleep fine I
80:19
wake up in the night and I’m like well what time do you wake up and most people
80:23
will tell me between 1:00 and 3:00 a.m. so on and then I say that’s your liver
80:27
we need to work on your liver No
80:45
that’s a great question what are what what is the best time to eat a meal best
80:50
time to eat a meal technically is between 5 & 7 5 and 7 p.m. which is
80:55
relatively early for many of us in my world that’s definitely early but that’s
81:00
the best time to eat because you need time for the food to digest before you
81:05
go to bed you really go to bed between 8:30 and 10:30 and you know you’re not
81:12
eating until 8 o’clock at night that’s not enough time for the food to digest
81:16
subsequently fool will sit sit and then I also see with people who eat later
81:22
meals they wake up at the middle of the night because their blood sugar will
81:25
spike so that’s another reason why I see patients waking up is because of their
81:29
blood sugar and the time they’re eating and limit the sugars release it will
81:33
wake them up in the middle of the night too and the adrenals respond to that
81:36
because we know sugar increases in the body the adrenal glands are going to
81:40
respond to that too so we wake up in a state of adrenaline still you had a
81:46
question you mentioned that most people are tired with caffeine what would be
81:56
something you was just
82:00
to get energy because I think that’s an epidemic we’re all tired most of us not
82:05
enough sleep but does food also have something to do with our body that it’s
82:10
tired because we’re full of toxins or they think you should have um a good
82:21
question so she she she was saying are there certain folks that so how did
82:28
you say that again sorry I’m like the us multiple questions sorry if she’s saying
82:36
everybody’s tired all the time we say it’ll avoid stimulants like sugar and
82:40
soda how can we keep on going and surviving you know without these
82:46
stimulants that we say to avoid but not just be fatigued all day long well one
82:50
thing is cleaning that liver more detoxification if we clean that liver
82:55
out we’re gonna have more energy and more mental clarity in our energy like
82:59
our whole Energy’s going to improve when we clean that liver out and then so
83:04
foods that we eat that keep continuing to detoxify the body fruits and
83:08
vegetables as one thing and then eating regular in my medical opinion it’s
83:15
eating regular meals throughout the day so I say eat like a bird so you’re
83:19
eating breakfast snack lunch snack dinner to help maintain that blood sugar
83:23
because a lot of the times when our adrenal glands are often our cortisol is
83:28
spiking at odd times in the day usually what happens we eat lunch right we we
83:33
wake up we have energy we start going in the morning we eat lunch and then we get
83:37
this 2 o’clock lull right we’re just like oh my gosh I need Starbucks I need
83:42
sugar I need something because both that’s an
83:44
adrenal issue but if we’re eating poor quality foods or our blood sugar is not
83:49
regulated throughout the day then that will cause imbalances in that and we’ll
83:54
get that lull in the afternoon where we feel like we need that stimulant so
83:57
eating low glycemic foods routinely throughout the day is going to help
84:02
maintain that blood sugar eating a protein with every meal to help maintain
84:05
that blood sugar with a good-quality fat is gonna help keep your blood sugar so
84:10
it’s not jumping and dropping and jumping which puts
84:12
extra stress on our body so that can give you more energy is just regulating
84:16
your diet throughout the day cleanly to help detoxify the body but also to
84:21
maintain that blood sugar I was your second second that by adding veggies
84:27
green leafy veggies especially remember we get energy from the Sun
84:32
photosynthesis right photosynthesis so first first order of business for planet
84:37
to grow in these water so make sure that we’re well hydrated that’s that’s the
84:41
most important aspect when it comes to food most of us walk around dehydrated
84:45
on me up a couple folks in the back we’re drinking their big jugs a lot
84:48
that’s that’s the critical piece staying well hydrated number two these these
84:53
vegetables especially the green leafies are storing Sun energy right they’re
84:58
storing Sun energy guess what that energy gets incorporated into our bodies
85:03
in fact giving us energy so eating eating plenty of green leafies
85:08
throughout the day cooked combination raw I make sure that
85:12
I have some form of vegetables especially some green leafies at least
85:16
twice a day at least partially for lunch and for sure with dinner so and I also
85:22
have a vegetables for breakfast as well so I make sure to stay stored up one on
85:29
the on the Sun energy boosts that retain that Sun energy smoothies are a great
85:34
way for morning breakfasts to get your veggies and you could throw spinach in
85:38
there you know you can get those veggies in I make an avocado spinach smoothie
85:43
and it’s awesome I love it I just made it up oh but basically if you all want
85:53
it it’s like almond or coconut milk great and I do like a whole avocado I do
85:58
a handful of spinach in there I do some coconut oil too to get me some fats and
86:04
then some honey some local honey it kind of gives it a sweetness but it is like
86:10
and then blend it all up it is so good I swear I believe it every day and I
86:15
yeah I made it up so I don’t know there’s wasn’t a recipe I thought I just
86:20
made it up but yes that’s a great question so our question was what are
86:33
some of the things that we can do to begin to detoxify our liver so number
86:39
one is the liver requires lots of liquid water it requires a lot of water because
86:43
if you’ve got a clean house you’re gonna clean up that’s ketchup on a pristine
86:47
white floor you need water you need a mom you wet mop so so you need to stay
86:53
well hydrated those who have been following our presentations over the
86:59
years this is now year six four five something like that all right yeah let’s
87:04
call it here five those who have been following us know that we almost always
87:08
mentioned the amount of water that we need daily and anyone care to mention
87:14
how much water we need who wants to see my impression of this guy so we are 70%
87:22
what salt water so our goal is half our body weight in ounces per day minimum
87:34
for survival right if we’re physically active and working on sweating you need
87:39
1/3 more of that so whatever you weigh divide it by two out that’s how many
87:44
ounces a day minimum all right so that’s a lot of water some of that is coming
87:49
through food I said you’re eating vegetables they’re
87:52
retaining a lot of fluid that’s are a lot of a lot of water so that’s
87:56
important the other things to do for the liver so real basic will run through a
88:02
couple real basic things one is very easy right we start with the easy and
88:08
inexpensive stuff limit lemon water so you squirt a little living in your water
88:13
and or use lemon essential oil right purified Lebanese central oil or just
88:17
squirt of lemon and or lime in the water the liver loves it it stings the liver
88:23
is an organ right organs you can’t play an organ unless it’s in tune right how
88:30
do these organ speak to each other they speak via vibrational frequencies they
88:34
speak to each other be a vibrational frequencies it’s not a tune you’re not
88:38
gonna like that sound it’s gonna manifest itself as anxiety so it’s
88:42
important to make sure you’re given the liver what it needs to be in tune it
88:46
loves highly alkaline substances because it’s always dealing with these acidic
88:51
substances to try to break down toxins right so it loves an alkaline alkalinity
88:56
of lemon and or limes they’re the most alkaline fruits that exist so although
89:02
we think that they are acidic right they have alkaline forming properties once we
89:07
ingest them we always give cocktail party information that’s right
89:17
absent salt has magnesium magnesium calms the body it also helps detoxify so
89:22
like I always say two cups of epson salt in a warm bath so for 20 minutes that
89:27
can help detoxify the body as well cocktail party information you ready
89:31
okay cocktail party information which substance which nutrient is high in
89:36
lemon or limes that make them alkaline nutrient vitamin mineral
89:45
C and that’s good guest potassium potassium very high in potassium so the
89:56
other things for the liver some of my favorites artichoke extract
90:02
milk thistle dandelion root among many others Zenda Corinne has many of those
90:12
already built in it I when I first started practicing integrative medicine
90:19
and one of my mentors in fact my primary mentor sold artichoke extract in his
90:26
office and I asked his staff I said what’s
90:28
number one selling a supplement in the office I assumed he would say something
90:32
like vitamin C you know vitamin e e”z nothing like that magnesium no I said he
90:37
said artichoke extract what artichoke is driving that’s because his practice was
90:45
centered around the same process focus on the liver detoxification if that
90:49
liver cleaned up and everything else begins to work better everything else is
90:53
in tune symphony of the body symphony of cells are functioning as one got it
91:03
let’s say that someone has been able to overcome anxiety for some time but they
91:07
have tingling in the body and they pain in the back of their neck like what do
91:12
you guys recommend for that person who’s trying to eat healthy and doing
91:17
everything that we can for coming so just to clarify the question again you
91:22
said they have tea there they’re eating cleanly living trying to live a clean
91:25
lifestyle yet they have persistent symptoms of tingling and a pain in the
91:30
back of the neck and kind of like tingling at different times of the day
91:35
the chiropractor that’s what I was gonna say chiropractic adjustments can help a
91:41
lot yeah just with the effects of our body’s
91:45
physical stress of everything but specifically adjusting T 8 7 8 in the
91:51
middle of the back feeds the adrenal glands it can help balance the body so
91:56
and adjusting the upper neck can help too but pretty much if there’s imbalance
92:01
in the nervous system and again chiropractically we work with the brain
92:04
in the nervous system and the brain talks with everything to communicate
92:08
function right so if it can’t communicate downstream then there’s
92:12
gonna be dysfunction in the body so if we create balance through a chiropractic
92:16
adjustment so that brain can talk to those adrenal glands and everything can
92:21
communicate freely within the body or body’s gonna function better right so
92:25
chiropractic adjustments can help a lot I do I have some of my patients here I
92:29
can just touch their backs and I could say I had one today middle middle back
92:34
it was just like a rock I said are you stressed she’s like it’s been a
92:37
really stressful thing and I’m like I can tell like you just touching your
92:41
body I can tell what what the issue is you know other issues I treat you know
92:46
any digestive issue low back I’ll find a lot of tension in that low back you know
92:50
so it’s it’s a really a cool therapy to use to treat just anxiety but a lot of
92:56
other things as well look at B vitamin status – like vitamin b12 and you got a
93:04
tingling and that kind of problem generally speaking I look at a b12 level
93:11
b12 is low I mean stomach acid it’s likely highly likely to be low as well
93:19
what vegetables are eating for breakfast great question
93:23
best veggies I eat for breakfast are I say 50% of the time cruciferous
93:28
vegetables so I eat a medley of cruciferous vegetables broccoli
93:32
cauliflower and then carrots that’s not a cruciferous special it’s actually
93:37
called California blend that’s what I that’s what I eat organic broccoli
93:42
cauliflower and carrots and now you know I’ll do do that one day next day I’ll do
93:48
green beans the next day all organic next day I do
93:51
broccoli alone but 50% of the time is there it’s the medley and why why do I
93:59
actually specifically do that for a reason because the cruciferous
94:03
vegetables are extremely beneficial for cleansing the liver extremely important
94:10
for cleansing the liver they contain a compound called endo Lamine indole amine
94:15
I am do l am i any and that specifically breaks down one of the toxins that leads
94:23
to excessive amounts of estrogen buildup let’s say from plastics among other
94:28
things so it helps to break down toxins that a plastic base which we’re all
94:33
inundated with so so that’s not actually so that’s what I would I have the
94:39
veggies but those are the veggies that I eat my daughter who is we just turned 13
94:46
for several years she’s the second one who comes to the kitchen and she gets
94:51
her breakfast started and she makes her own set of veggies and her veggies
94:55
usually include sometimes carrots sometimes broccoli those would be the
94:59
big two for my daughter again teach the family teach your kids how to
95:03
do this independently at very young ages they will learn how to how to deal with
95:10
quote/unquote stress and anxiety in part in the kitchen kids in the kitchen makes
95:15
a big difference so when you’re getting you get that energy you absorb that
95:21
healing energy that’s in a carrot that’s in broccoli at seven you absorb it just
95:24
by handling it just by getting the scent from it etc I mean you eat it of course
95:29
it’s game on your liver loves you back
95:35
yes / dairy free don’t forget that dairy blue and dairy free waffle and or
95:47
pancakes but make pancakes – no they’re blueberries wild blueberries while
95:51
blueberries are extremely beneficial for the liver by the way very very
95:55
beneficial for the liver also great for the eyes as well specifically for night
96:00
vision excellent you want to improve wild
96:04
blueberries also have antiviral properties as well remember there’s a
96:08
special virus that like to hang out in the liver which is steam epstein-barr
96:12
virus you were listening tonight nobody fell asleep that’s the dream talking
96:17
about anxiety you know oh my gosh yeah so so that’s the ticket yeah I usually
96:22
have a couple of eggs eggs by the way I should say something about eggs just a
96:29
few years ago we never saw eggs show up and I shouldn’t say never but it’s very
96:34
rare to see extra up in food sensitivity testing now it’s extremely common
96:39
extremely common so eggs are not necessarily a food that
96:44
I highly recommend for most people these days because it’s it’s pervasively
96:49
common to have an egg sensitivity why is that why is that so two reasons
96:57
least I’ll share with you right off the top we can talk about it separately down
97:01
the road two reasons number one eggs are food for viruses and microorganisms so
97:10
if we have poor gut these microorganisms overpopulate microorganisms overpopulate
97:15
and what do they like to eat when we’re in the lab in the laboratory we grow
97:20
these organisms on what in the petri dish we give them eggs that’s the
97:24
culture in which we grow up okay they beat it they feed on that stuff so they
97:28
love it if someone were to get a flu shot the person given the flu shot
97:33
should ask them whether they have an allergy to eggs what is the flu shot
97:37
addressing a virus right why did why would why would that why would they say
97:41
that because they grew the virus for the shot in a culture of eggs do you
97:47
understand so that’s one reason the second reason is that arsenic
97:51
unfortunately which is highly toxic is also ever-present in most of our eggs so
98:05
not everybody has that effect but I can just tell you if I’m if I’m if I’m
98:10
guessing whether someone will have of sensitivity to eggs I’m guessing that
98:14
they would Oh irrespective knowing anything about that’s a great question
98:33
you guys asking really good questions you might put me on the spot both of us
98:36
on this fun dairy we live in a dairy State so I can’t say too much they’ll
98:44
come back so Dairy Dairy is a is problematic number one irrespective of
98:51
whether an individual is intolerant or not first thing Dairy does is it
98:56
increases mucus production what did we say about mucus earlier what do we say
99:03
about it we said mucus is associated with increased what this to be
99:08
thank you you were listening okay you get increased histamine that’s telling
99:11
you that there’s a problem just to mean it’s going to cause what what symptom
99:15
anxiety why should we listen to that warning signal because that’s telling us
99:20
on the other side of that increased histamine is poor detoxification we’ve
99:24
got to increase mucus to clean up some junk in the trunk do you understand
99:28
so dairy products substantially increased mucus substantially so Bobby
99:36
if somebody comes in they have someone if someone comes in if someone comes to
99:42
the office and they have you know skin issues right away first question I’m
99:47
asking is how much dairy are you consuming okay why cuz that junk is
99:51
coming out through the skin the liver cannot handle the process of
99:55
detoxification of dairy products so I had the story plenty of cheese all you
100:01
want but you know that who wants to cheese I told you earlier who wants to
100:05
cheese who wants to dairy who wants the eggs that’s exactly right the organisms
100:11
that are present they’re screaming for they’re sending a signal to the brain
100:14
and giving you an emotion it’s gonna attach any motion to that when you eat
100:20
that stuff do you feel good it’s gonna attach that emotion that’s sitting there
100:25
sit it to the brain and say oh I gotta had that piece of cheese do you
100:30
understand the best thing you can I’m serious
100:32
the best thing you can do is deny just like I deny to my wife that I was
100:38
coughing in the morning oh I my daughter she’s almost 2 but when she was around
100:54
nine months old I brought her to dr. Byron because she had all this eczema on
100:58
her and I couldn’t figure out what I was
101:01
doing I mean we I was doing everything I knew how to do as a doctor and I was
101:05
getting goat’s milk for her because a cow’s milk was bad and he sent me to go
101:10
get food sensitivity and it was the goat’s milk that was triggering this I
101:15
cut that votes month out within a week her skin was completely clear within one
101:20
week I mean she was completely resolved so it was the it was the dairy that was
101:23
triggering that and here I thought as being good getting her goat’s milk but
101:26
I’m not getting cow’s milk you know but so we just don’t we don’t even have
101:31
dairy in my house is how we just that’s why we use coconut milk in our smoothies
101:37
in my household we haven’t had it since 2010 dairy since then and by the way you
101:45
know it may sound like I’m kind of you know droppin knowledge here right but I
101:51
live this stuff I live it I went through this I don’t same questions you guys are
101:55
asking me I asked myself because I didn’t have the knowledge at the time I
101:58
went through this my family and I we were eating standard American diet you
102:02
know somewhat cleanly but we were having dairy every day every day and family
102:07
members were had asthma family members had eczema family members had allergies
102:11
and then I started just where I’m sharing with you guys we remove dairy
102:16
that was the first thing we did massive improvement that’s in part what led me
102:20
to do this kind of work that was one of the triggers said oh my gosh is this
102:24
working for my family maybe it’ll work for my patients I started used utilizing
102:28
it in my patients and oh my gosh it will come back and say dr. Bob okay now I
102:31
have this other problem I never told you about okay let’s figure that one out
102:34
okay so I you know understand we’re human too and we go through the same
102:40
stuff so what they’re just gonna say
102:50
yeah let’s do on one or two more questions yeah
102:55
the doctors saying the alkaline day and if so what’s your take on it
103:03
good question the question was am i familiar are we familiar with dr. Chevy
103:08
diet and out specifically the alkaline diet dr. Sophy and whether or not that
103:12
has benefits for our health for us to achieve optimal health yes I’m familiar
103:18
with dr. Chevy and his work who is who has since passed away he shares some
103:25
important very important concepts and more specifically you talking about just
103:29
about alkyl and alkyl alkaline diet but if you study and carefully he talked
103:33
about an anti mucus diet okay talking about an anti mucus diet anti mucus diet
103:39
is very similar to an alkaline diet and he specifically encouraged people to use
103:48
special herbs and natural foods specifically to elicit that so yes I’m
103:56
familiar with him I wouldn’t say I would use his quote unquote diet as a
104:01
comprehensive diet for all because we are all different but as a guy it’s
104:07
excellent I remember what I was gonna say so most people come to us to heal
104:14
them right but I just want to encourage you guys to know that you guys the
104:20
things you do every day is how you heal yourselves so we’ll give you this tidbit
104:24
of information but what you guys do would implement in your lives every
104:28
single day is how you create your own journey to wellness into optimal health
104:33
okay that’s what I was gonna say all right so we’re gonna
104:38
okay okay um I was just curious so I have a pretty clean diet for the past
104:45
I’ve had it for like six months or so or everything that I consume it’s just like
104:49
natural like from the earth so I get really hungry for like sugar sometimes I
104:54
can shoot craving because I’m not consuming anything processed so I try to
104:59
eat chocolate like 70% dark chocolate but I feel like I’ve been eating too
105:04
much of it so I’m looking for like other sources of sucrose that’s healthy
105:08
like from obviously like pomegranates and like other fruits but I’m just
105:12
curious like what do you guys would come after that
105:14
well usually if you’re craving sugar there’s something deeper going on okay
105:20
that’s probably you know whether it’s something in the gut or the liver or
105:23
something that could be why you’re screaming for sugar but you know any
105:29
fruits is a yeah they have sugar in them so that’s right with a lower glycemic so
105:34
they’re gonna be a nice alternative dark chocolates bad good 70 75 % yeah has
105:40
magnesium in it yeah so that’s a good alternative as well anything else yeah
105:46
so again that’s a great question because you’re asking a question is based on
105:50
your cravings so you’re listening to your body right we listen to your body
105:54
carefully you’re saying okay it’s practically telling you what the issue
105:57
is alright sayin okay you crave sugar but
106:01
you’re replacing that with chocolate that’s a good choice relatively speaking
106:04
if you’re craving sugar you’re craving energy okay you’re craving energy so
106:09
what what forms of energy would you utilize you would utilize short and long
106:13
term forms of energy these deliver stores sugar stores glass sugar in the
106:18
form of glycogen for about 90 minutes work so again you focus on the liver
106:22
look at look at fruits very good quality fruits you’re getting a good quality
106:27
form of sugar with with fruits if you can get them in season great if not
106:32
don’t worry about it we live in Wisconsin and or Northern Illinois so we
106:36
cannot go by the typical seasons otherwise we would starve okay the
106:41
second thing I would say is if for example part of that craving for sugar
106:45
is in fact including chocolate then you start looking at chocolate specifically
106:49
in the ingredients a new nutrients I should say in chocolate even
106:53
if it’s 70% you say okay chocolates gonna have fair amount of
106:57
zinc but it’s also gonna have a lot of copper okay yes absolutely
107:03
so so chocolate what I will begin to think I have this is again showing you
107:08
how I think about that question attacked I’ll say okay because she has copper
107:13
toxicity and or some derivative of it leading to a quote unquote craving for
107:18
it and that’s the way I would I would look at that if you had other associated
107:23
symptoms as well it would be high on the list so cool alright well thank you guys
107:31
all for coming out you can ask a question after after we’re done we’re
