Minimize Toxin Exposure With Neurohacker

Baby: Welcome to my mom’s podcast.

This podcast is brought to you by Four Sigmatic… a company whose companies I have loved over the years for my superfood mushroom-based products. They use mushrooms like Sher Mane, Chaga, Cordyceps and Reshi in all kinds of delicious ways. Did you know that mushrooms are more genetically found in humans than in plants? And that they breathe oxygen and CO2 as much as we do, but mushroom eggs can escape space and radiation. This amazing fungus has always been a part of my daily routine in some way or another, usually with sherry coffee or in the morning fish green tea, during the day like pupa protein and mushroom tamarind like chaga and cardi seps and at night To fall down with As a listener to this podcast, you can save up to four sigmatic products.

This episode is sponsored by a home lab test at Avery Well, which you can get without a doctor’s prescription! I have used many of their tests and can recommend couples who have been particularly helpful. They usually have in-house allergy tests for 40 common allergens using the same CLA-certified labs used by allergists / doctors. Labs are reviewed by an independent physician and measure IGE levels for common allergens, including pet dander, mold, trees, grass, and more. I also really like their food sensitivity tests that test IgG reactions. This was a big key for me in restoring my health, because in foods that didn’t show up as allergies that caused inflammation for me. I have also used the elimination diet, but this food sensitivity test has also filled the missing piece of the puzzle for me. By healing my intestines, I have been able to get rid of all the allergies except eggs. I found that being sensitive to eggs made a big difference because I often ate them as a cheap protein source. I feel so much better now that I abstain from eggs and I would never have known that without this test! I also use vitamin D tests at home to monitor these levels and know if I need extra.

Katie: Hello and welcome to the “Valence Mama Podcast”. I’m from and It has a valence with an “E” at the end. This is my new line of care products like hair care and toothpaste.

This incident is all about poisoning and detoxification. I’m here with Dr. Heather Sandison, founder and medical director of North County Natural Medicine and founder of Marama, a residential facility for the elderly. Because I want to be associated with him, he specializes in neurogenetic medicine and neuro-hacking. And it’s specifically trained to identify things that affect the brain, such as autism, ADD, depression, anxiety, Alzheimer’s, and so on. It’s a really unique system and its aging care facility. She is doing this with patients and seeing amazing results. So, in this episode, we talk about how you can reduce your exposure and effectively detox from the three major toxins as well as your natural detox system in the body. Can support This is a really interesting and far-reaching event. Without further ado, let’s jump. Dr. Heather, welcome. Thanks for coming here

Dr. Heather: Thanks for keeping me.

Katie: I’m excited to talk to you about jumping and talking about different types of toxins and how to detox effectively. But I always like to hear this background, especially since I’ve just met someone and can’t wait to talk to them. So, to get you started, can you explain a little bit about your background and the naturopathic doctor who specializes in this?

Dr. Heather: Yes. So I had problems with my personal health. When I was undergraduate, I was doing pre-med and then came up with autoimmune disease as well as TMJ. I couldn’t even open my mouth enough to brush my teeth. And so I went to the medical doctor and I had a terrible experience. And then I went to someone who was listening. I went to the dentist, to more than one dentist, I went to acupuncture. I went to a psychologist, you know, a psychologist. I went to a lot of people who said they might be able to help. And finally, I ended up seeing a DO, she was actually an osteopathic medicine doctor. And he and I chatted, he did craniosacral work, and then he said, “Hey, have you ever heard of any medicine for natural remedies? If I could do it all over again, I’d do it.”

And so it turned me to natural medicine. And when I look at the naturopathic doctors’ point of view and the fact that they are taking medicine, they really look at the cause of the disease and put the help in the form of surgery or medicine which has side effects. I was like, ah, that’s what I’ve been imagining for so long, I didn’t realize it already existed. I don’t need to create it, someone else has already created this system of medicine. And then, at the time, it only became so when I went to school for natural remedies.

Katie: Good. Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like Al that sounds crap to me, Looks like Al that sounds crap to me, Looks like Al that sounds crap to me, Looks like Al that sounds crap to me, Looks like Al that sounds crap to me. But will you just take a look?

Dr. Heather: Absolutely. So we do the same four years of medical school and we have a board two years later. He has been a deep diver for the first two years in Biochemistry, Physiology, Anatomy, we have a comprehensive lab where we have to dissect the human body. You know, there’s a lot in common. And then we take this big test that lasts all day at the end of two years. And then at the end of four years, we have, you know, multimedia exams to become licensed.

And the second set of two years and the four year medical program for us is different from traditional medicine. And then instead of circulating, we’re in a teaching clinic and we’re learning about methods, hydrotherapy, and herbal medicine, lots of nutritional health, lots of health basics.

And so instead of learning about surgery and delivering babies, we’re in a clinic where we talk to people about their diet, nutrition and lifestyle. And then we can also refer you to surgery, you know. We can also write prescriptions. So we are trained and licensed as a primary care provider but we have a specialty in lifestyle items that can help people stop taking medications or possibly even get out of them. ۔

Katie: I think it’s amazing. And it was a big part of my own puzzle, when I started having children I had something that would eventually let me know that it belonged to Hashmo. But it took many years and I stayed with a lot of doctors who tested; I guess the standard of care was basically just T3, I don’t remember what else they tested, but they were anti Will not test for bodies or TSH. And it wasn’t until I found a natural healer that I was actually able to figure out what was wrong and working to correct it.

And it blew me away from realizing that after living in the traditional medical model for so long, and it’s just becoming a lab test and prescription and even told by doctors, you know, “your diet It really doesn’t affect you. In addition to health, weight. Working with a natural doctor and being asked about lifestyle, stress, and food, and sleep, and many other factors. And that was the time. I was also doing research and just learning how complex it is to be involved in all of this.

So I think for a lot of people, especially in a complex health issue, looking for a professional who is willing to look at all these pieces. And I know, from researching for this interview, that you’ve done a lot of research, especially in the area of ​​toxins and detox, and how to reduce things like that. So let’s start broadly and can you explain a bit; it seems to me that the word contains a lot of things. But explain the nature of what toxins are when we interact with our bodies and what is happening?

Dr. Heather: So for a minute, I just want to take it one step further. So I talked about being motivated to go for natural remedies because naturally natural patients value treating the cause of the disease. Hashmotus’ very complex chronic disease, or the way I treat it, such as autism, brain related things, autism, Alzheimer’s, even depression, anxiety, is one of the causes of all these things. If we look at the human body, it is a complex system and these chronic complex disease conditions are caused by imbalances; and really any complex system, well, if it is a financial system, or an agricultural system, then we The complex system we are talking about. About, if there is a fault in the system, it is usually due to an imbalance.

I would even say that it is always due to imbalance, too much, too little, in the wrong place, or at the wrong time. And if we can help correct this imbalance, we can make the system more cohesive, so that it behaves better, well, you get the most out of it. And so the five things that I believe cause a complex chronic disease can really create an imbalance in these five areas. , Toxic, texture, stress, nutrients and then infection.

And I really chose to dive deeper into the toxins. And the reason is that, from a traditional point of view, as you discovered from your Hashemite journey, traditional medicine, they completely ignore it unless it is highly toxic, right? As long as someone swallows a can of paint, well, they really don’t want to hear about any long-term insidious low-level toxins that can definitely disturb endocrine function.

So I really feel like it’s my responsibility to go for these toxins because a lot of my patients have been told that traditional medicine has nothing to do with it. They don’t know why there’s nothing they can do, but they’re all experiencing fatigue or headaches or insomnia, autoimmune diseases. And so what can we do about it? Well, from my point of view, they basically exist; I call them flavors like ice cream. Toxins have three flavors. And I see them in these categories because that’s what makes it easy to test.

So the first taste is heavy metals. And I do that using provocation. So I want to get some kind of provocative agents so that we know what’s in the system over time because some of them get stored. They’re not alive so they’re not shopping, so you don’t get much in your system unless you use it, sorry. So if you are eating heavy metals either by eating too much fish, especially predatory fish, then things like sharks or tuna, swordfish, which are high in heavy metals.

And then the other way is that people are exposed to metals, it’s from the combination of their teeth, and often pulling them out is a great way to expose them. And do so with a dentist who really understands how to reduce your risk. So heavy metals and then mycotoxins. Mycotoxins are like heavy metals in which they do not live. So myco is yeast or mold, and it is the toxin that is produced by yeast or mold. So, with that, I have a tendency to provoke; and I’m referring to that provocation because there is disagreement in this area. So if you talk to different experts, some will want to get angry and others will not. But you know, my model is to do this, that’s how I was trained, and that’s how I did it for a long time. But when I look at the lab, I know what it means when I do it my way.

So with mycotoxins, we get irritated with some glutathione and some sweat, and you can do it from home. And then you collect urine and we can see how many mycotoxins are in your system or you can realize how many mycotoxins are in your system. And possibly even the type of mold that produced those mycotoxins.

So, Stachy Butters, or you may have heard of it as black mold, which can produce certain types of mycotoxins. And then the chitomium is a different kind of mold and it produces different types of mycotoxins, like Aspergillus or Penicillium do. So if it’s growing into one, you know, in an office building or your bedroom or bathroom, a building or a room where you spend a lot of time, they can definitely accumulate mycotoxins in your system. Are

And then there’s the third toxic flavor we’re looking for, chemical toxins. So I find 20 of them in the lab tests I’m running and then we use a little stimulant with glutathione or sweat. And I’m sure you’ve heard that there are 80,000 chemical-like substances on the planet right now. We all, 80, 000, for. don’t check for but we feel fine, what are the petrochemicals, or are they related to petrol and you know, they are burning fossil fuels. So what are petrochemicals? What are parabens or PCBs? Some of the things you see in personal care products, do you have any?

So we measure some of the petrochemicals, some of the parabens, the PCB. We measure glyphosate, which is what we think of as an active ingredient in the roundup. So pesticides and herbicides, we measure a handful of them but definitely glyphosate. And then we can see things like styrene that come from styrofoam and chemicals that can be associated with making your nails look too much.

So we look at a handful of 20 of them, but with different types. And to me, it’s often eye-opening. I have a patient who, amazingly enough, is associated with an organic, non-toxic lifestyle in her home. And we did this test because I didn’t know why he was so tired. And of course, after some digging, after testing it, I was like, “Why don’t you have charts on pesticides and herbs, because I’ve never seen and you don’t have organic Are you eating? ” And she was like, “Oh, I’m lonely” arranging Japanese flowers.

So this amazing woman, like those low-income families, creates beautiful arrangements of these flowers so that they can send them to the hospital for those who are hospitalized but cannot afford the beautiful arrangement of the right flowers. ۔ So she does this two days a week, she works voluntarily, and she depends on her elbows with pesticides and herbs, which we don’t even spray on food. So we had no idea it would pop up. I don’t like to ask her this question, well, do you arrange flowers? But when we ran the test, it popped up. It surprised us both. But then she was able to wear gloves, you know, a very simple intervention that completely reduced her exposure and then changed her symptoms.

Katie: That’s amazing. Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like BT aint for me either, Looks like BT aint for me either, Looks like BT aint for me either, Looks like BT aint for me either, Looks like BT aint for me either, Looks like BT aint for me either, Looks like BT aint for me either, Looks like BT aint for me either. Like, looking for things that can make such a big difference. So understanding the toxic material, I think, like all the inputs that can come in, I’ve always thought of a bit like a bucket. Like, we all have a point where things will flow, and you can put a lot of things, and when you finally get there, it will flow and something is going to happen. And that’s the kind of way I’ve always thought about all sorts of toxins, and in my case, an autoimmune disease that is probably caused by a lot of factors like environmental toxins and sleep disorders for me. Deficiency, and poor diet, and many other things.

And then to me, it appeared in Hashmotos, but I think some part of the equation seems potentially different. So are there any ways that you see, medically, this flow of toxins in people?

Dr. Heather: You’re right, and you make such a big point, okay. It’s not just what’s coming out, it’s what’s coming. And I’ll even start with 75% environmental disease, 75% of my work is pointing to what’s coming. So turn around; I think of it, like turning off the faucet that fills this bucket. This is a great match. So how do I see it, you know, mine; that’s my prejudice, of course, because that’s what I do. But I really think everyone should figure out how toxic they are.

So, seeing this, what have I put all these things on my skin, you know, what am I eating in terms of my diet? میری والدہ آئیں… میں نے 18 ماہ قبل ایک بچہ پیدا کیا تھا۔ میری ماں نے چھ ہفتوں تک میری مدد کرنے کے لئے میرے گھر پر دکھایا۔ اور وہ اپنی یادداشت خراب ہونے کی شکایت کرتی رہی تھی ، اس لئے وہ ایسے نام بھول رہی تھی جو اس سے پہلے کبھی نہیں بھولی تھی۔ اسے گروسری اسٹور کی فہرستیں لکھنی پڑتی تھی ، جب عام طور پر وہ اس میں بہت عمدہ ہوتی ہے ، ملاقاتیں ، چھوٹی چھوٹی چیزیں۔ اس موقع پر ، وہ صرف اس کے بارے میں مذاق کررہا تھا لیکن وہ خوفزدہ تھی ، میں بتا سکتی تھی کہ اسے ڈر ہے کہ وہ اپنا دماغ کھو رہی ہے۔

اس لئے اس نے میرے گھر پر دکھایا اور میں ، یقینا. اس پر قائم تھا کہ ایک چیز ایسی بھی نہیں تھی جو میرے گھر میں نامیاتی نہیں تھی۔ تو گھر کی ہر ایک چیز نامیاتی تھی۔ اور اس سے پہلے وہ اس کا پابند نہیں تھا۔ لہذا ، اس نے ظاہر کیا ، ہم نے صرف واقعی ، واقعتا good اچھا کھانا کھایا تھا ، کیوں کہ ، یقینا I ، میں ایک نوزائیدہ تھا ، اور میری والدہ نے اس کی یادداشت خراب ہونے کے بارے میں شکایت کرنا صرف چھ ہفتوں بعد ہی چھوڑ دیا تھا۔ لہذا بے چینی ، افسردگی ، یقینا، خود سے چلنے والی بیماری جیسی چیزیں ، ان کو براہ راست زہریلا نمائش سے جوڑنا بہت مشکل ہے ، کیونکہ یہ بہت سے مختلف طریقوں سے ظاہر ہوتا ہے۔ زہر آلود ، وہ ہمارے ماحول میں ہر طرف وابستہ ہیں ، ٹھیک ہے ، آپ ان سب سے بچ نہیں سکتے۔

لیکن کچھ ایسی چیزیں ہیں جن سے آپ پرہیز کرسکتے ہیں ، جیسے کہ آپ کھانے کے معاملے میں کھانوں کا انتخاب کرتے ہیں ، جسے آپ اپنی جلد پر ڈالتے ہیں ، آپ اسے تبدیل کرسکتے ہیں۔ آپ خود کو اس کے بارے میں تعلیم دے سکتے ہیں۔ تو کچھ چیزیں ایسی ہیں جن کو ہم تبدیل کرسکتے ہیں اور دیگر جو ہم نہیں کرسکتے ہیں۔ لیکن جن چیزوں کو ہم تبدیل کرسکتے ہیں ان پر قابو پانا بہت ضروری ہے اور ہماری بیماری کی ریاستوں اور ہماری فلاح و بہبود کی ریاست پر اس کا بہت بڑا اثر پڑ سکتا ہے ، یہاں تک کہ ہم کتنا اچھا محسوس کرتے ہیں۔

کیٹی: بالکل۔ ٹھیک ہے ، تو ہم اس پر مزید گہرائی میں چلیں۔ مجھے پسند کریں گے کہ میں ان تین مختلف اقسام میں سے ہر ایک کو تھوڑا سا زیادہ تلاش کروں کیونکہ مجھے لگتا ہے کہ وہ ابھی تک زیادہ اچھی طرح سے سمجھ نہیں پائے ہیں ، یا کم از کم ان میں سے کچھ پر الجھن پائی جاتی ہے اور ہم کیسے ‘ دوبارہ بے نقاب ، اور پھر اگر ہمارے سامنے بے نقاب ہوچکے ہیں تو اس نقصان کو کیسے ختم کریں۔ تو آئیے پہلے بھاری دھاتوں سے آغاز کریں ، کیا آپ ہمیں بھاری دھاتیں سمجھے جانے کے بارے میں تھوڑا سا زیادہ تفصیلی جائزہ پیش کرسکتے ہیں ، اور ہم ان کے ساتھ عام طور پر کہاں بات چیت کر رہے ہیں؟

ڈاکٹر ہیدر: ہاں ، بالکل تو جو بڑے لوگ آپ کو سب سے زیادہ خوفزدہ کرنا چاہتے ہیں وہ سیسہ اور پارا ہیں ، اور یہ بہت ہی نیوروٹوکسک ہوتے ہیں۔ لہذا لیڈ کریں… جیسے سبھوں نے چکمک ، مشی گن ، اور پانی میں سیسہ کیسے تھا کے بارے میں سنا ہے اور اس وجہ سے جو بچوں کو بے نقاب کیا گیا ان میں آئی کیو کو کم کیا گیا۔ لہذا یہ واقعی ، واقعتا، ، واقعی اہم ہے کہ ہمارے سامنے قیادت نہیں کی گئی۔ لیڈ پینٹ میں ہوتا تھا۔ اور ’70 کی دہائی میں جو کالعدم قرار دیا گیا تھا تاکہ اب اور نہ ہو۔ لیکن اگر آپ کسی پرانے مکان میں رہتے ہیں تو ، ایسا نہیں ہے کہ میں سمجھتا ہوں کہ لوگ ، گھر کی دیواروں کو چاٹ رہے ہیں ، لیکن جب بھی آپ دروازہ کھولتے یا بند کرتے ہیں ، کھڑکی کھولتے یا بند کرتے ہیں ، تو یہ رگڑ ہے ، وہ رگڑ ہے یہ تخلیق کیا گیا ہے ، جو ہوا میں تھوڑا سا پینٹ ذرہ چھوڑ سکتا ہے اور پھر آپ اس میں سانس لے سکتے ہیں۔

لہذا ، سیسہ بھی آسکتا ہے… آپ جانتے ہو ، اگر آپ زیورات بنانے والے شخص ہیں ، یا اگر آپ کسی صنعتی عمل کے ذریعے کسی نہ کسی طرح بے نقاب ہوگئے ہیں تو ، ٹھیک ہے۔ اگر آپ کاروں یا ویلڈنگ پر کام کر رہے ہیں تو ، آپ کو معلوم ہوگا۔ لہذا زیادہ تر لوگوں کو اعلی سطح پر اس وقت تک بے نقاب نہیں کیا جاتا جب تک کہ یہ پانی میں ختم نہ ہوجائے۔ کم از کم نہیں… اب ، میں یہ کہوں گا کہ بیرون ملک مقیم ایسے افراد جن کی وجہ سے سیسہ ایندھن سے نکلا تھا ، پٹرول سے بھی ، ’70 کی دہائی میں۔ لیکن اس کا رجحان وسطی امریکہ اور ہندوستان اور تیسری دنیا کے زیادہ ممالک میں رہتا تھا ، یہ زیادہ دن تک ایندھن میں تھا۔ اور اس طرح میرے پاس ایسے مریض ہیں جو اپنے ’60 اور 70 کی دہائی میں ہیں‘ اور ان کا کہنا ہے کہ اگر وہ کسی دوسرے ملک میں پرورش پائے جاتے ہیں تو ان کی سطح بہت بلند ہے۔ اور اس نسل کے کچھ لوگ جو امریکی ریاست میں پالے گئے تھے۔

اور پھر مرکری ، جیسا کہ میں نے پہلے بھی ذکر کیا تھا ، عام طور پر مچھلی اور پھر منہ میں دھات مل جاتی ہے۔ اور پھر ، بدقسمتی سے ، کوئلہ بجلی گھروں میں بھی پارا پیدا ہوتا ہے ، لہذا یہ ہوا میں ہوسکتا ہے۔ اور یہ ان چیزوں میں سے ایک ہے جس پر ہمارا بس کنٹرول نہیں ہے۔ کیڈیمیم ایک اور بڑی چیز ہے اور یہ سگریٹ تمباکو نوشی سے آتی ہے۔ اور یہ تینوں کی طرح ہیں۔ ایلومینیم ، ٹن ، وہ بھی آتے ہیں۔ گڈولینیم ایک بھاری دھات ہے جس میں پایا جاتا ہے… .اگر آپ کو بہت ساری ایم آر آئی مل جاتی ہیں تو یہ اس کے برعکس رنگ میں ہوتا ہے۔ اور اس لئے میں واقعتا high اعلی سطح والے لوگوں کو دیکھوں گا اگر ان کے پاس بہت ساری آرتھوپیڈک ایم آر آئی ہوتی۔

اور پھر ، ان لوگوں سے جان چھڑانا… آپ جانتے ہو ، واقعی یہ سب بھاری دھاتوں سے چھٹکارا پانے کے معاملے میں ، جو آپ کرنا چاہتے ہیں وہ آپ کے ایمونوٹریوں کو کھول دیتا ہے۔ خاتمے کے اعضاء کے لئے ایمنکٹری ایک خوبصورت فطرت کا لفظ ہے۔ اور خاتمے کے پانچ اعضاء ہیں ، آپ کا جگر ، آنتوں ، گردے ، پھیپھڑوں اور پھر جلد اور لمف۔ اور میں ان میں سے ہر ایک کی مدد کرنے کے بارے میں تفصیلات میں جانا پسند کروں گا۔

کیٹی: ہاں ، بالکل مجھے لگتا ہے کہ یہ سمجھنے کے لئے یہ ایک اہم حصہ ہے کہ جسم کو اس کو ڈیٹاکس کرنے کے لئے چینلز موجود ہیں اور ہم اس کی تائید کیسے کرسکتے ہیں۔ اور ان لوگوں کو سننے والے جو ٹھیک کی طرح سوچ رہے ہیں ، مجھے نہیں لگتا کہ بھاری دھاتیں میرے لئے ایک مسئلہ ہیں ، مجھے یہ پسند ہے کہ آپ وہاں چلے گئے وہاں نمائش کے عمومی ذرائع ہیں۔ اور واقعتا. میرے پاس ایک غیر معمولی تھا جو میرے پہیلی ٹکڑے کا حصہ بن کر ختم ہوا ، جو ہائی اسکول میں تھا ، میں نے ایک داغے ہوئے شیشے کی دکان میں کام کیا۔ اور میں نے اس حقیقت کے بارے میں بھی نہیں سوچا تھا کہ دھات جسے ہم داغ گلاس کے ٹکڑوں کے بیچ استعمال کرتے تھے ، اور پھر اس چیز کو جو ہم پگھل کر ان چیزوں کو اکٹھا کرنے کے لئے پگھلاتے ہیں اس میں سیسہ نکلتا ہے۔ تو یہ میری صحت کے سفر کے ایک حصے کے طور پر تھا ، جس سے مجھے نپٹنا پڑا۔ لیکن ہاں ، ہمیں اس پر چلتے ہیں کہ ہم اس ڈیٹوکس نظام میں تمام مختلف اعضاء کی تائید کیسے کرسکتے ہیں۔

ڈاکٹر ہیدر: آپ اس طرح کی بات کرتے ہیں ، میں لوگوں سے ان کے مشاغل کے بارے میں پوچھتا ہوں نہ صرف اپنے مریض کی وجہ سے جو پھولوں کا بندوبست کررہا تھا ، بلکہ سیرامکس بھی ، گلیز میں اکثر ان میں برتری رہتی تھی۔ لہذا داغے ہوئے شیشے ، شیشے کی اڑانے ، زیورات بنانے کی طرح ، ان میں سے کچھ واقعی تفریحی ، تخلیقی اور حیرت انگیز مشاغلیں اگر ان چیزوں میں کیا ہے اس کے بارے میں ہم محتاط نہیں ہیں تو ان کا سبب بن سکتا ہے۔

لہذا ، اس سے کوئی فرق نہیں پڑتا ہے کہ آپ کے زہریلا ذائقہ کیا ہے ، آپ کو ممکنہ طور پر بے نقاب کردیا گیا ہے… بے شک ، ہم اس کی نشاندہی کرنا چاہتے ہیں ، ہم اس کی نشاندہی کرنے کے قابل ہوں گے اور ہمیں اس سے باہر نکلنے کے طریقہ کار کے بارے میں کوئی خاص وضاحت حاصل کرنا چاہتے ہیں۔ لیکن ان امینٹریوں کو کھولنا اور خاتمے کے ان اعضاء کی حمایت کرنا واقعتا کوئی ایسی چیز ہے جو کوئی بھی کرسکتا ہے۔

لہذا پھیپھڑوں ، ڈیٹوکس سانس کا کام ، بہت سارے ، آپ جانتے ہو ، یوگک سانس لینے ، یوگا سانس کے مشقیں ، آن لائن مدد ملتی ہے جو آپ کو سانس لینے کے مختلف طریقوں کے ذریعہ لے جائے گی جو آپ کو ٹھیک ٹھیک کرنے میں مدد دیتی ہے۔ اگر کوئی پولیس جمعہ کی رات کسی کو مضحکہ خیز ڈرائیونگ کرنے کے ل over کسی کو کھینچ لے تو وہ سانس لینے والا کرنے جا رہے ہیں کیونکہ شراب پینے کے ذریعہ جو زہریلا ہم پیدا کرتے ہیں ان سے چھٹکارا حاصل کرنے کا ایک طریقہ یہ ہے کہ سانس باہر نکلا جائے۔ تو یہ بہت سے زہریلے لوگوں کے لئے بھی سچ ہے۔ اور ہم طرح طرح کے بھول جاتے ہیں ، کہ ہم اپنے پھیپھڑوں کے ذریعے اتنا چھٹکارا پا سکتے ہیں۔ اور یقینی طور پر فائدہ اٹھانا یہ ایک راستہ ہے۔

اب اس کا پلٹائیں پہلو یہ ہے کہ ہم یقینی طور پر بہت سارے زہریلے سانسیں لے سکتے ہیں۔ لہذا ایک سستا ترین مداخلت اور بہترین مداخلت آپ کے گھر میں اپنے دروازے اور کھڑکیوں کو دن میں کم از کم ایک گھنٹہ کے لئے کھولنا ہے۔ اور اگر ممکن ہو تو اپنے دفتر کی کھڑکی کھولیں۔ اندرونی ہوا کا معیار ، یہ ایک قسم کا ہے… میں اس کے بارے میں سوچتا ہوں جیسے ایک بمقابلہ سمندر ، بمقابلہ۔ اس کے علاوہ اور بھی بہت سی ہوا ہے جو ان تمام ٹاکسن سے مل جاتی ہے۔ لہذا اگر آپ کھڑکیاں کھول سکتے ہیں اور اس تازہ ہوا کو اندر آنے اور اندرونی ہوا کو گھٹا دینے دیں تو آپ ہوا کا معیار بڑھانے والے ہیں۔

اب ، یقینا ، اگر آپ رہتے ہیں یا کسی فری وے کے اوپر کام کرتے ہیں ، تو یہ بھی کام نہیں کرے گا۔ لیکن ہم میں سے بیشتر کے ل if ، اگر ہم دروازے اور کھڑکیاں کھولیں تو ، ہم واقعی اندرونی ہوا کے معیار کو بڑھا سکتے ہیں۔ تو پھر ہم جس چیز میں سانس لے رہے ہیں ، ہم اس میں موجود ذرہ کی تعداد کو کم کرسکتے ہیں۔

دوسری چیز جو آپ کر سکتے ہیں وہ ہے… خاص طور پر اگر آپ کو اندرونی ہوا کے معیار کے بارے میں فکر مند ہے کہ کیا آپ ایئر فلٹر حاصل کرسکتے ہیں۔ اور اس طرح میرے پاس بہت سارے مریض ہیں جن کی علامات میں صرف ایک ایئر فلٹر شامل کرکے بہتر ہوا ہے۔ اور انھوں نے مجھے ادائیگی نہیں کی لیکن میرا پسندیدہ جی سی ملٹی ہے بذریعہ IQAir ، مجھے سچ میں لگتا ہے کہ یہ ایک بہت ہی اعلی درجے کا معیار ہے۔ وہاں بہت کچھ ہے جو بہت مہنگا ہے ، اور وہ بہت اچھا کام نہیں کرتے ہیں۔ لہذا جب موقع دیا جاتا ہے تو ، میں لوگوں کو اس کی طرف راغب کرنا پسند کرتا ہوں ، کیونکہ یہ کام کرتا ہے۔ لہذا یہ پھیپھڑوں ہیں۔ کچھ طریقوں سے جن سے ہم واقعی پھیپھڑوں کے ذریعے ڈیٹوکس کرنے کی اپنی قابلیت کو بڑھا سکتے ہیں وہ یہ ہے کہ سانس لینے میں اور پھر دو ڈیٹاکس سانس لینے کا کام کرتے ہیں۔

گردے یقینی طور پر پانی ، پانی ، پانی ، پانی ، پانی ، اور معدنیات. لہذا آپ کے سسٹم میں کافی الیکٹرولائٹس رکھنا۔ اور میں آست شدہ پانی کی سفارش نہیں کرتا ہوں ، جس میں اس میں موجود معدنیات کی مقدار موجود نہیں ، لیکن اچھ highے معیار کے موسم بہار کا پانی ہے۔ اور یہاں تک کہ آپ کے پانی کا تجربہ کیا۔ میں سان ڈیاگو میں رہتا ہوں اور ہم دریائے کولوراڈو کے اختتام پر ہیں۔ ہمارے پاس جو پانی کے نلکے سے نکلے ہیں اس کے لئے پانی کے حیرت انگیز معیار نہیں ہیں لیکن ہمارے پاس بہار کے عمدہ پانی تک رسائی ہے۔ لہذا میں تجویز کرتا ہوں کہ لوگ اچھے معیار کا معدنی پانی پیں جو شیشے ، سیرامک ​​یا سٹینلیس سے باہر ہو ، پلاسٹک سے باہر نہ ہو اور خاص طور پر وہ نرم پلاسٹک کی بوتلیں جو دھوپ میں بیٹھی ہیں۔ یہ بہت سارے پلاسٹک کیمیکل پینے کا ایک نسخہ ہے ، لہذا یقینی طور پر ان سے پرہیز کریں۔

وافر مقدار میں پانی پینا۔ اور اگر آپ کو پانی پسند نہیں ہے تو ، پھر تھوڑا سا لیموں ڈالنا یا تھوڑا سا ٹکسنا یا ککڑی شامل کرنا ایسی چیز ہے جو آپ کے ل more مزید ذائقہ دار بناتی ہے۔ اور ڈیٹوکس چائے ، یقینا veryبہت ، بہت مددگار ثابت ہوسکتی ہے۔ یقینی طور پر ڈینڈیلین اور تھیسٹل گردوں اور رواں دواں دونوں کے لئے اچھا ہے۔ لہذا اس کو اپنے روز مرہ کے معمولات میں شامل کرنا ، بہت مددگار ثابت ہوسکتا ہے۔ لہذا یہ پھیپھڑوں ، گردے ہیں جگر ، جگر کے ل so اتنی بڑی چیزیں یقینی طور پر ڈینڈیلین ، دودھ کا تھرسٹل ہیں ، اور پھر ہمیں ان تمام اچھے غذائی اجزاء کی ضرورت ہوتی ہے تاکہ جگر کو سم ربائی کرنے میں مدد ملے۔

لہذا جگر ، اپنی ساری حکمت کے مطابق ، اگر ہمارے پاس فیز ٹو ڈیٹاکس کے لئے ضروری غذائی اجزاء کی ضرورت نہیں ہے تو ، جگر مرحلے کے ایک آٹوکس کو سست کردے گا۔ اور اس کی وجہ یہ ہے کہ… الکحل ، واقعی ایک اچھی مثال ہے۔ جب ہم ایک گلاس شراب یا کوئی اور چیز پیتے ہیں تو یہ جگر میں جاتا ہے اور جگر اسے مرحلے میں ایک ڈیٹوکس میں ایسٹیل الڈیہائڈ میں تبدیل کرتا ہے۔ یہ اسلٹ الڈیہائڈ ہی ہے جو ہمیں پھانسی دیتا ہے ، یہ حقیقت میں اس شراب سے بھی زیادہ زہریلا ہے جو ہم نے پہلے کھایا تھا۔ اور اس طرح جگر میرے دماغ کو اڑا دیتا ہے ، یہ الہی ڈیزائن ، یہ اتنا حیرت انگیز ہے۔ اگر ہمارے پاس ایسی تمام غذائی اجزاء نہیں ہیں جو ایسیٹیل الڈیہائڈ حاصل کرنے کے ل necessary ضروری ہیں ، جو زہریلا انٹرمیڈیٹ ہے ، جسم سے مکمل طور پر مرجع ہوا ہے اور اس کا خاتمہ ہوجاتا ہے۔

لہذا ان غذائی اجزاء کی وافر مقدار میں ہونا ، این اے سی ، بی وٹامنز ، معدنیات ، گلوٹاتھائن جیسے چیزیں بہت مددگار ثابت ہوسکتی ہیں۔ ان سب چیزوں سے یہ یقینی بنانے میں مدد ملتی ہے کہ وہاں موجود نظام میں کوئی خرابی نہیں ہے ، اس میں کوئی حرج نہیں ہے۔ اور پھر جگر… لہذا اس میں جگر کی بھرپور مدد حاصل کرنا کافی مددگار ہے۔ اور پھر زندہ باد نے ایک زہریلا کیچڑ نکالی جس کو پت کہتے ہیں۔ اور یہ پتتاشی میں جاتا ہے ، اگر آپ کو ایک مل جاتا ہے ، اور پھر گٹ میں جاتا ہے۔ لہذا جس طریقے سے ہم گٹ کی مدد کرسکتے ہیں وہ بنیادی طور پر فائبر کے ذریعہ ہیں۔ جب تک آپ کو وافر مقدار میں پانی مل رہا ہے اور یہ ٹھوس چیز کا رخ نہیں کرتا ہے ، تب آپ فائبر ایک بہترین کام کر سکتے ہیں۔ ہر دن آنتوں کی حرکت کرنا ، دن میں کم از کم ایک بار… اگر آپ نہیں ہیں تو ، یہ قبض ہے اور اس پر توجہ دینے کی ضرورت ہے۔

لہذا یہ وہ جگہ ہے جہاں سے میں اپنے بیشتر مریضوں سے شروع کرتا ہوں ، اگر وہ روزانہ آنتوں کی حرکت نہیں کررہے ہیں تو ، ہم سیلولر زہریلا کو متحرک کرنا نہیں چاہتے ہیں۔ تو زہریلی قسم کی… مجھے لگتا ہے جیسے برف سے ڈھکے ہوئے پہاڑ خلیات ہیں اور پھر جب آپ کے پاس آنتوں کی حرکت ہوتی ہے ، تو یہ اس کو سمندر میں چھوڑنے کے مترادف ہے ، یہ ندی کا اختتام ہے۔ اور اس طرح ہم وسط میں سیلاب نہیں بنانا چاہتے ہیں۔ اور اس طرح ندی کا منہ کھولنا یا آنتوں کی حرکت ہونا ، پسینہ آنا ، پیشاب کرنا ، یہ سب چیزیں ہمیں آپ کے باہر زہریلے مادے پیدا کرنے میں مدد کرتی ہیں۔ لہذا خاتمہ وہی ہے جو بہت اہم ہے۔

لہذا آنتوں کی نقل و حرکت ، اگر آپ اس زہریلا کیچڑ کو پت کہتے ہیں اور اسے باندھ کر سکتے ہیں ، جیسے چیہ ، سن ، سسلئم ، چارکول ، مٹی ، چوریلا ، ایک نسخہ ہوتا ہے جب یہ استعمال ہوتا ہے ، بعض اوقات بعض مائکٹوکسنز کے لئے ، جسے Cholestyramine کہتے ہیں۔ ان سبھی پابندیوں کا یہ ہے… میں اس کے بارے میں سوچتا ہوں جیسے وہ زہریلا کیچڑ کو گلے لگا رہے ہیں اور وہ اس کو تھامے ہوئے ہیں تاکہ وہ اسے جسم سے باہر لے جاسکیں اور آپ آنتوں کی حرکت کے ذریعہ اس کو مکمل طور پر ختم کرسکتے ہیں۔

اگر ہمارے پاس ان پابندیوں کی تعداد کافی نہیں ہے ، تو پھر ایک عمل enterohepatic recirculation کے نام سے ہوگا۔ اور یہ خیالی طبی اصطلاح بنیادی طور پر صرف اتنا کہہ رہی ہے کہ آپ کے گٹ چیزوں کو جذب کرنے کے لئے ہیں ، آپ کا بڑی آنت چیزوں کو جذب کرنے کے لئے ہے۔ لہذا اگر پت وہاں بہت لمبی لمبی جگہ پر بیٹھتا ہے ، تو آپ کا… اور اس کا پابند نہیں ہوتا ہے ، اس میں سے کسی ایک کو باندھ کر اسے گلے سے نہیں لگایا جاتا ہے ، تو آپ کا جسم اس کی ازسر نو تشکیل کرے گا۔ اور پھر اندازہ لگائیں کیا؟ یہ سیدھے جگر کی طرف جاتا ہے۔ لہذا اب آپ کے جگر کو کل کی کوڑے دان اور آج کے کوڑے دان کو نکالنا ہے ، لہذا یہ سارا اضافی کام کر رہا ہے۔ اگر آپ ہر روز آنتوں کی حرکت کرسکتے ہیں تو آپ کے جگر کو بہت کم کام کرنا ہے۔

لہذا پھیپھڑوں ، گردے ، جگر ، آنتوں اور پھر جلد اور لمف۔ یہ لوگ خوشگوار ہیں کیوں کہ آپ کو مساج کرنا پڑتا ہے ، ٹھیک ہے ، ہمارے تمام ماماوں کے لئے ، آپ اس کے مستحق ہیں۔ لہذا جلد اور لمف ، بہت سارے طریقوں سے ہم اس کی تائید کرسکتے ہیں ، خشک جلد یہاں تک کہ صحت مندی لوٹنے لگی۔ ایک منی ٹرامپولائن آپ کے لمف کو چلانے میں مدد کرتی ہے۔ گرم اور ٹھنڈا بارش ، گرم اور سردی کے درمیان آگے پیچھے جانا ، یا اگر آپ کے پاس کوئی چھلنی ہو یا ایسا ہی کچھ ہو تو ، بالکل ، یہ حیرت انگیز ہے۔ لمفیتک مساج جگر پر کاسٹر کا آئل پیک جگر اور جلد اور لمف سے بھی مدد مل سکتا ہے۔ بہت ساری تفریحی باتیں ہیں جو ہم یہاں کر سکتے ہیں۔ سوناس سونا لاجواب ہیں اور مجھے پسند ہے… سونا کے کچھ کمبل موجود ہیں اور بہت کم سونا بھی ہے جس میں آپ بیٹھ سکتے ہیں جس سے آپ اپنا سر باہر رکھیں۔ اس سے لوگوں کو تھوڑا سا زیادہ برداشت کرنے میں مدد ملتی ہے اور وہ زیادہ دیر تک وہاں رہ سکتے ہیں۔

آپ کو ہفتے میں ایک دو بار صرف 10 منٹ پسینے کی ضرورت ہے اور آپ کو ایک ٹن ٹاکسن باہر آرہا ہے۔ ان زہریلے مادوں کو ختم کرنا ضروری ہے۔ لہذا اگر آپ پسینہ آنا شروع کردیتے ہیں تو ، آپ اس کے بعد یا تو تیز شاور لینا چاہتے ہیں یا واش کلاتھ یا کسی اور چیز کا استعمال کرنا چاہتے ہیں ، آپ سے زہریلے مادے اتار دیں۔ Because when you’re hot like that, your pores are open, we’ve got toxins out, what we don’t wanna do is have you just reabsorb them. So really important with saunas to replace your electrolytes using water and then an electrolyte powder. Coconut water is a great one. And then make sure you rinse. And I typically say with cool water because that’ll get the toxins off and then it will close your pores back up.

Katie: Great advice. And a question I’ve seen come through a few times, I wonder if you might have an answer to, is some people seem to have, especially when they first start doing sauna or things that stimulate the lymph system or even from taking certain supplements that can be detoxifying, like magnesium, or greens, or algae, they’ll notice itching on their skin. Is that like a detox reaction or have you come across anyone having that clinically?

Dr. Heather: Yeah, lots. So absolutely, probably, a detox reaction. Although…you know, certainly itching we always wonder if there’s an allergy. And if you have a known allergy to something, then, of course, avoid it. But what I notice with… And I was sort of alluding to this with the analogy of the snow-capped mountains all the way down to the riverbed, out into the ocean. The analogy here is about mobilization at the cellular level, so that’s our snow-capped mountain. And then elimination at the level of the ocean or, you know, our bowel movements, urination, sweating, anything that eliminates it. So the ocean is outside of the body and our analogy of…our river is inside of the body.

So if we start to have too much snow melts, or we’re detoxing too much, at the cellular level, we’re not able to keep up, we’re not able to get enough elimination, not enough is leaving the body and so now we have more in the bloodstream. And what we see are things like rashes, we see headaches, we see fatigue, this is like the keto flu. A ketogenic diet is very detoxifying. And so sometimes people initially will have an increase in symptoms when they start on a detox diet or a detox plan.

My interpretation of that and my professional approach to that is, that is great information that tells us we’re probably on the right track, but what we need to do is slow down. Really, really important, this is not a no pain, no gain situation. This is an opportunity for us to communicate with our body about what it needs. And so if there is an increase in rashes or fatigue or headaches or anything like that, then we take that and we say, okay, let’s take less of the detox provocation agents or even less of the support and just slow things down a bit. Do the gentler approach, so spend less time in the sauna or, you know, focus on water, focus on the detox breath, focus on the things when you don’t have to add anything to the body but you’re really just focusing on elimination.

Katie: Yeah, that’s such a great point. Like I found for me…I think probably that balance is different for everyone. But when I was in the heat of the autoimmune disease, when it was at its worst, I had to be very careful with diet and eat very low inflammation. And then I had to…anything else beyond that, I had to do very slowly and make sure I was getting extra sleep. I didn’t do any really difficult workouts during that time, it was very much a period of rest and let my body rebuild slowly. And I think that’s such an important reminder is, especially when it comes to any of these things which can be very dangerous if you mobilize them too quickly. More is not always better and it’s not always just, you know, you should push through and do more to get through it quickly.

This podcast is brought to you by Four Sigmatic… a company I’ve loved for years for their superfood mushroom based products. They use mushrooms like lions mane, chaga, cordyceps and reishi in delicious all kinds of delicious ways. Did you know that mushrooms are more genetically similar to humans than plants are? And that they breathe oxygen and exhale CO2 just like we do but mushrooms spores can survive the vacuum and radiation of space. These amazing fungi are always a part of my daily routine in some way, usually with Lion’s Mane Coffee or Matcha Green Tea in the morning, Plant protein and mushroom elixirs like chaga and cordyceps during the day and reishi at night to wind down.

This episode is sponsored by Everlywell, at-home lab tests that you can get without a doctor order! I’ve used many of their tests and can recommend a couple that have been especially helpful. They have an at-home allergy test for 40 of the most common allergens using the same CLIA-certified labs used by Allergists/Doctors. The labs are reviewed by an independent physician and measure IgE levels of common allergens including pet dander, mold, trees, grasses, and more. I also really like their food sensitivity tests that test for IgG reactions. This was a big key for me in my health recovery, as there were foods that didn’t show up as an allergy that were causing inflammation for me. I used an elimination diet as well, but this food sensitivity test also filled in the missing piece of the puzzle for me. Through healing my gut, I’ve been able to remove all sensitivities except for eggs. Finding out I was highly sensitive to eggs made a huge difference as I ate them often as an inexpensive protein source. I feel so much better now that I avoid eggs and I would never have known that without this test! I also use their at-home Vitamin D test to keep an eye on those levels and know if I need to supplement. Check out all of their tests at Use code MAMA10 for 10% off orders.

Obviously, one of these toxins that you mentioned a little bit and I’d love to go deep on is mold, because this one has risen a little bit more to mainstream knowledge, I think, lately. People are starting to be aware that it can be a problem. But there’s still so much confusion about how to test for it, how to find out if it’s an issue, what to do about it if you do find mold, and if it really can actually have that dramatic of an impact on the body. So what are you finding when it comes to mold exposure?

Dr. Heather: Again, you know, the conventional community has really poo-pooed this idea for a long time. And I feel so grateful to people like Dave Asprey, Ritchie Shoemaker, and Neil Nathan, who have brought this to the forefront and really shown people that this can be a big part of what’s driving your symptom picture. And I have people who, you know, we address this, we figure it out, we address it and they go back to normal. And it’s so satisfying and I feel so lucky I get to do what I do when I get to see someone show up for their families again after treating this.

And I don’t wanna say that it’s an easy road by any stretch. Often when people come in and they test for mycotoxins and there’s a significant amount of that going on, I brace them, you know, this is a months to years long journey, not a days to weeks journey. So typically, we’re looking at about two years, maybe more depending on the amount of exposure and whether somebody is currently being exposed.

A lot of it is speculative in terms of why mycotoxins have become such a problem for people. And I don’t know, you know, if it’s a new thing, or if it was going on for a long time and we’re just kind of realizing it, the science is just catching up, or if it is really that we’re being exposed more. One of the theories is that the building materials, so things like drywall, have created more food for mycotoxins. Whereas, like old homes that were made of plaster, say, or brick, that wasn’t something that the molds like to eat as much, right, so you didn’t have as much risk.

And then the other thing that has changed is there’s a lot of fungicides in paint. And what we see is just like antibiotic resistance, you know, you add a bunch of antibiotics to the system and now the biota, the bacteria, it will change and be more resilient to that antibiotic. So with the fungus, what we think may be happening is that having so much fungicide in the paint is creating…molds are making more and more toxins. One of the things that we see is that like Candida, if you use an antifungal, if you swallow some nystatin say, then the Candida when it’s under threat will make a gliotoxin, so it’ll make a toxin. When you don’t have any nystatin in the system, and you can see this in a petri dish. When you don’t add an antifungal, the yeast, the Candida doesn’t make a toxin, right.

So depending on how threatened… From an evolutionary perspective, like if you put yourself in the role of yeast or a mold who’s on a piece wood competing with other microbes for food, then if you create toxins, then you’re gonna win for that food, you’re gonna get rid of these other, whoever you’re competing against. So you can see how adding more toxins or fungicides to the paint might increase the production of toxins for that mold. So this is all very speculative. I don’t wanna, you know, sound like we know for sure that this is going on, but it certainly can be one of those factors that’s influencing the increase in incidents of mold diseases, mycotoxin-related illness.

So for this, the way I test is I tend to use…like I mentioned, I do tend to provoke these and again, the consensus, there isn’t one. So different experts in this field have differing opinions, but it is the way I was trained and what I’m used to looking at, in terms of the results. So we’ll do a provocation using glutathione and sweating. And then people will collect their urine the next morning and send that off to the lab. There’s a couple of different labs that I use. And then, based on that, we create a plan that is very specific to the type of mycotoxin that shows up. So kind of like heavy metals, for mercury, we use certain chelating agents. For lead, we use different chelating agents.

For mycotoxins we have some degree…even though this is very new, we do have some degree of specificity that we can apply to how we treat the different mycotoxins. And so we create a plan together and then, like you said, we just go at the pace the body can tolerate because what we don’t wanna do is flood the system with toxins quicker than it can get rid of them.

Katie: Gotcha. Yeah, that makes sense. And so, for anyone listening just to make sure, because you’ve mentioned that term a couple of times about provoking. So basically, you can use different substances to provoke different things you’re trying to test for in the body. And then you can use, essentially, those same substances to help the body like continually release those things and eventually get rid of them, but you just want to be careful about the amount?

Dr. Heather: Yeah, thank you for clarifying. So, I started looking for mycotoxins years ago, maybe four or five years ago. And what I was finding is people who we knew had mold exposure, so they knew they were in a moldy house because somebody had done the environmental testing and they found the stachybotrys in the wall. They had awful symptoms that were clearly related to mold, and they might even have allergies to that mold. Well, we test their urine for mycotoxins and there would be nothing in the urine. And we were just pulling our hair out going, “Why is this? We know that they have lots of exposure, we can see that it’s in the environment, where did it go?” And what we found is that the sickest people, the reason they’re so sick is because they’re not eliminating, right, they’re holding on to these toxins.

And mycotoxins, they tend to be fat-soluble. So this is part of why they’re so dangerous for the endocrine system is because they can get glommed up in your pituitary or hypothalamus or up in your brain, in your lymph nodes, in your glands, like your thyroid, or your ovaries. So they can wreak havoc throughout the body because of their nature of being fat-soluble.

But what we found was, if we provoked them using something like glutathione, kind of…I think of it just like shaking it up, right. So you’re releasing some toxin from the cells, like the snow-capped mountains, right? And typically, not always, but a lot of times people feel a little worse after that, unfortunately. And if somebody starts to feel worse during the provocation process, we just stop it right then and go ahead and collect. Because what you’re getting is, again, back to that analogy of the snow-capped mountains, you’re releasing the snow, the toxin that’s in those cells, and now you’ve created flood.

Especially if you’re not having regular bowel movements, like you have a dam there, and now you have a flood and you can be causing a lot of destruction. So really important to have those emunctories open. But yes, that provocation process is also important because we wanna get an accurate result on the testing.

Katie: Gotcha. Okay, that makes sense. And I know that you mentioned you use a lot of this in helping people with brain-related potential issues like autism or ADHD, and that we even see links with depression and anxiety. And before we went live, you also mentioned that you do a lot of work with people with things like Alzheimer’s and dementia. So I’m curious, like, obviously, I can see the connections easily for anyone who is dealing with any of those types of issues or with autoimmune disease, but it seems like in health, anytime we find patterns that can help people heal who are in crisis, also there’s lessons we can learn to optimize, even for people who hopefully aren’t dealing with those same kind of problems. So, from your clinical work and your research, are there strategies that we can all use, even if we’re not in health crisis, to help protect and improve our brain and our body using these strategies?

Dr. Heather: Yeah, absolutely. So my work with the Neurohacker Collective we are really focused on optimizing, especially brain function, right. It’s great when we can all show up and be fully present and engaged in our work, we can be contributing. And there are a lot of people I talk to who don’t really have anything going on right now that has maybe inspired them to reach out to a doctor. Like they don’t feel like they have a pathology or nothing’s wrong on their labs, they really just wanna get the most out of their day, out of their relationships, out of their work.

And so there are things that I certainly recommend. And, like we discussed, you know, toxins are relatively ubiquitous so if we can prevent the accumulation of toxins in our body, then we can prevent disease long term. So, absolutely, you know, one of the simplest easiest things people can do, kind of like opening the doors and windows, just take your shoes off at the door. We track in so many toxins. And then if we’re wearing shoes, and then we’re barefoot later on, we can absorb those toxins through our feet. And then if you’re getting into bed, you know, it’s so gross when you start to think about it. But just taking your shoes off at the door, creating that habit, is one of the best ways to reduce the toxic burden in your home and then in your body.

But other ways to optimize, certainly brain function, is exercise, getting your circulation going. Again, it really goes back to those foundations, really good nutrients coming in, getting plenty of good circulation through exercise. Like you mentioned sleep, we do so much of our detoxifying at night when we’re sleeping, particularly in the brain. So getting really good sleep and prioritizing that, especially those hours before midnight. So if you can get to bed by 9:00 or 10:00, and get a few solid hours before midnight that’s when we get most of our deep sleep, and do a really good job detoxifying.

And then, of course, back to having regular bowel movements. You know, regardless of whether or not you’re struggling with toxic exposure, high toxic burden, having a good regular bowel movement. All of our cells eat and poop, right, so we have our basic metabolic toxicity that builds up every day. And if we’re not eliminating that, then we can get all kinds of accumulation of all the nasty stuff.

Katie: Got it. And I’d love for you to talk a little bit about the facility that you run and the results that you’re seeing there. Because that’s really astounding and incredible what you guys are doing.

Dr. Heather: Thank you. So I have had North County Natural Medicine for a handful of years now and I started seeing a lot more dementia patients. I was trained by Dr. Dale Bredesen, who wrote a book called “The End of Alzheimer’s.” And so we’re getting…really, it was surprising to me how good the results were. I had really bought it, hook line and sinker, right, this story that once you have Alzheimer’s there’s really nothing you can do, like good luck with that, right.

So I was trained by Dr. Bredesen after being very impressed by what he had to say, it was very much in alignment with the way I approach any sort of complex chronic disease. And so I brought it back into my clinic, and then sure enough, kind of created a reputation around that. And had people calling and saying, “Hey, my loved one has Alzheimer’s, and I just don’t have the capacity to take care of them any more, where can I send them? Is there a care facility where, you know, they’re incorporating this?” And what I found was that there wasn’t.

So, of course, I was like, “Well, that can’t be too hard, why don’t we just create one?” And that was how Marama was born. And so Marama, I purchased at the end of December of 2019. And we took over…it was a hospice facility so we inherited five residents. And this also completely surprised me, two of the residents did pass pretty quickly after the transition, but three residents are still there. And one of them who was bed-bound is now walking. Another got kicked off of hospice and the other is about to get kicked off of hospice.

And so, what is this? April, so it’s been five, six months. And the only things we did for those residents…because we couldn’t change anything, you know, we can’t change their meds, they have their doctor’s orders. But what we did was we changed the diet, it’s 100% organic diet, and as much as possible, kind of this keto flex or Whole30 kind of paleo diet.

So we got rid of a lot…of course, all of the candies, the Skippy peanut butter is gone, the Wonder Bread is gone. Occasionally, I get complaints about too many seeds in the bread that they do get, but it’s worth it from what we can tell. We changed the food, add lots more veggies even if we have to hide them. And we switched all of the soaps, all of the personal care products, and all of the cleaning products as well. All of that got switched to non-toxic.

And what we’ve seen is amazing transformation in these people. And I’m not suggesting that at 88 or 94 they’re gonna go back to work or anything like that, but even their families have seen how much more alert they are, how much more engaged they are in conversation with them, how much happier they are, really, day to day. So it’s been really gratifying. And especially this guy that’s up and walking, it’s neat, it’s really fun to see.

Katie: I bet that’s incredible to watch. And it makes me think of, you know, this kind of conversation that’s come about the last few years about… You know, we’ve always had studies and related things to lifespan. And now we’re starting to see more of a focus on healthspan. And the idea of not just living a long time, but living well as long as possible, and living in a way that’s healthy and happy and has quality of life as well. And I think all this work that you’re doing is gonna be things that we start understanding all of the pieces that go into that and hopefully can avoid a lot of these problems.

And for those of us who are like navigating an autoimmune disease, there’s links there that are helpful. But also, just for those of us who want to optimize our lives in the best way possible, and create solid foundations for our kids, I think these are all really important keys to that. And with such a focus on neural health and brain health, I’m curious if you have any other tips for just kind of optimizing cognitive function for moms or for those of us working that can help us to be more efficient and effective and focused at work.

Dr. Heather: So meditation and exercise, essentially, moving meditation, I get it. I have an 18-month-old and two businesses, you know, like, there’s a lot going on. And there is, for all of us, and especially right now in this COVID crisis, you know, when our wearing multiple hats all over the place. And yet, it’s never been more important for me to get in a daily meditation and to get in some exercise. I cannot…it’s the best feeling medicine by far. Like, don’t worry about a test, don’t worry about anything else. If you can just do those things get in…and, of course, good food, you know.

There’s nothing more valuable than taking that time to reduce the stress or to really shift perspective, right. The stressors are not gonna go away but what we have control over…and this goes back to toxicity as well, right. Like, toxins are a lot about what we allow in. And we can think about this as food or as media or as, you know, the arts we allow in or the relationships. It’s what we choose to allow in is that first step of making sure we’re not overburdened with toxins. And then second, are we able to digest? Are we able to break it down into the components that make sense for us? Whether it’s a news story or it’s broccoli, right? Like, are we able to break it down? Do we have the capacity to digest it?

And then third, can we absorb the parts that serve us? So can we get the sulforaphanes out of the broccoli? And can we get the really important information from that news article? And can we get the love from our mother in law? Fourth, can we eliminate the parts that don’t serve us, right? So can we let go of whatever nastiness someone said, and take the good of the critical feedback they gave us? Can we get rid of the fiber? Can we have that bowel movement, right? Can we let go of the information that makes us more anxious and crazed?

So allowing that process to take place and giving ourselves the time, so that we have the capacity to fully process is, I think, paramount to being fully optimized whether it’s in our relationships with our in-laws, or our children, or our boss, or our colleagues, or our clients. Taking that time for ourselves away from all of the needs, and all of the hats and roles that we play, is essential. I cannot understate that or overstate that, excuse me.

Katie: I love it. And you mentioned a lot of resources in this episode, I’ll make sure I link to all of them in the show notes at But specifically, you also have a podcast as well, right?

Dr. Heather: Yes. So I host “Collective Insights,” which is it through Neurohacker Collective, and it’s so fun. I’m sure you have the same experience. I absolutely love…it’s one of my favorite parts of my job just to pick the brains of experts in different fields whether it’s exercise, or diet, or longevity. There was a guy I got to pick his brain about orgasms. It’s just so fun, the people that I have the privilege to talk to and, you know, getting to be on the show with you today. So that’s been awesome. Thank you for having me.

Katie: Oh, it’s been a pleasure. We’ve covered so much. I think, hopefully, helped a lot of people. Another question I love to ask, as we wrap up, is if there’s a book or a number of books that have really dramatically impacted your life, and if so what they are and why?

Dr. Heather: So, right now professionally, I mentioned “The End of Alzheimer’s” by Dale Bredesen and then “Toxic” a book by Dr. Neil Nathan is the other one. So my practice is almost entirely built around putting those things into practice for people. So my clinical practice really relies heavily on the insights that those guys have gleaned and the data collection and research that they’ve done. And those books, they’re designed not just for doctors, but for people who are struggling with toxins or with Alzheimer’s. And there’s some overlap as well of course, because Alzheimer’s one of the things we wanna check for is the toxic burdens. So those books, if anyone is struggling with mycotoxin and illness or with Alzheimer’s, those are great places to start, where you can really get a lot of quality information.

Katie: I love it. I’ll make sure those are linked in the show notes, as well as have links for people to find you and keep learning if they’d like to or find out more about your clinic or your facility. But thank you so much, this has been such a fun interview, and I’m really appreciative of all the work you do.

Dr. Heather: Katie, thank you so much for making this awesome information available to people.

Katie: And thank you, as always, for listening and sharing your time with both of us today. We’re so grateful that you did. And I hope that you’ll join me again on the next episode of “The Wellness Mama” podcast.

If you’re enjoying these interviews, would you please take two minutes to leave a rating or review on iTunes for me? Doing this helps more people to find the podcast, which means even more moms and families could benefit from the information. I really appreciate your time, and thanks as always for listening.
