Speaker 2 00:00:21 Good morning. Hope you had a happy Halloween. Did you dress up? Speaker 1 00:00:25 Uh, yes. Uh, they, um, dressed me up in a t-shirt, a Papa pig t-shirt. Cause Adriana went as Peppa and mommy went as mommy pig. So they got me this super size T-shirt, one, one size fits nobody, and um, slapped a hat on my head and that was it. And guess what? All I did was drive the car. Speaker 2 00:00:50 So did y'all go trick or treating? Speaker 1 00:00:52 Oh yeah. That was a beautiful night last night, man. The half moon and the weather was in the mid sixties. Perfect dude. Speaker 2 00:00:59 Did she get a good haul of Halloween candy? She Speaker 1 00:01:02 Did. She absolutely did. We probably did three streets and, you know, down over here in Tanglewood. So, you know, it was, um, they were barricaded off, which is the way we prefer to do it cuz you know, we were, matter of fact, we were in the neighborhood there at one person's house and about six o'clock and here came this van with some ladders on top of it. So, you know, somebody probably trying to get home from a workday and speed limit was 20 and they were doing about 30 through there. It's just, it's like, eh, this is how dangerous it can be. You know what I mean? Speaker 2 00:01:32 So Tanglewood though, that's a good neighborhood for trick or treating though. Generally people are drive so in the streets the houses are close enough together where you can Speaker 1 00:01:39 Perfect. Yeah. Yeah. And they barricade off the ends of the street so the people really aren't driving down and they have the, you know, they're dragging the trailers where they make into hay rides and kids on the backhoe. So it's really nice cuz again, you know, 30 minutes you've covered two neighborhood blocks and you're done. Speaker 2 00:01:57 Beautiful. I got a question for you. Mm-hmm. <affirmative> health aside, what would be your Halloween candy of choice if, if you say after Adrian went to bed, got a sweet tooth, went in her candy bag, what would be the one you'd pick out? Speaker 1 00:02:11 Well first of all, if she went to Trader Joe's and got that dark chocolate peanut buttercup, that'd be it, two years ago before I knew about that. Reese's for sure. Yes. Gotta have my peanut butter and chocolate. Other than that you can pretty much keep everything else. And she's sort of the same way. It's funny cuz I mean she, she'd opened up something and she put it in her mouth and I didn't like that. Throw it away, Speaker 2 00:02:33 You know. So Reese is okay. My next question about Reese is though, do you prefer traditional Reeses or do you like the ones that are shaped like a Christmas tree cuz they have more peanut butter? Speaker 1 00:02:41 Yeah, well the more peanut butter, probably the better, but you know, I agree. I go traditional on that one. Um, I don't know if I've tried these, you know, the holiday cause now I think they have the Christmas egg. You Speaker 2 00:02:54 Have an egg c the Speaker 1 00:02:55 Easter egg. The Easter egg. The Easter egg one. So I have to say that, you know, since I found those Trader Joe's and that, that box of, I don't know, there's a bunch of them in there for seven bucks. Um, lasts me easily a month. You know, I consume about two of those in the evening. That's perfect. Speaker 2 00:03:12 So, so you got some dark chocolates, some organic peanut butter there, so it's nice alternative to a Reeses. Yeah. So me, I'm going Kit Kat all day long, a huge fan of Kit Kats always have been. That's my go-to. That's that one. The fun sized candy, Speaker 1 00:03:26 Right? That's one. The SNAs has got the, uh, Speaker 2 00:03:28 Give me a break. Speaker 1 00:03:29 The wafer in there. Is that what that is coated? Yeah. Yeah. Kit Kat give a Kit Kat. Kit Kat break, right? Speaker 2 00:03:34 Yep. Big fan. And you know that actually, uh, so after I've had a, you know, say I ate some Halloween candy, a lot of Halloween candy say I had a whole bag full Good way to detox from that. It's what I'm gonna talk about today. Speaker 1 00:03:47 All right? Yeah. Tell us how we get rid of that. Speaker 2 00:03:51 Say that you've been eating off plan for a while. Maybe you've been eating a lot of rich foods like I have throughout the whole, um, birth and baby rearing process. Speaker 1 00:04:00 Oh, that's your Speaker 2 00:04:00 Excuse. That's my excuse. Well, no, here's what I'm doing. I'm trying to get my dad Bo going and I'm well on my way. Oh, so what I did had a schedule, huh? Here's what I did. Okay. You ever heard of the salt water flush? Speaker 1 00:04:13 Uh, yes. Maybe not this particular one you're getting ready to roll into, Speaker 2 00:04:17 But I'll tell you about it. Yeah, I'll tell you all about it. So here's what you do. The saltwater flush is a way to, Okay. Just go ahead and let you know. If you're listening to this episode, there's gonna be a lot of, uh, potty talk. So if you have a weak stomach, might want to tune out of this one. But, uh, I'm not gonna pull any punches on this. So the saltwater flush is, in my opinion, the best way to completely empty out your colon. And it's a way to rid your body of waste products that have built up over time. Because yes, your liver is great at detoxing, but we throw so much inorganic material at it that maybe it wasn't designed to be able to detox that It's a good idea to give it a little boost. And one way that I do that is with the salt water flush. Speaker 2 00:05:07 So I get one liter of, uh, spring water and I put one full tablespoon of pink alaya or Celtic sea salt, put it in there, make sure it's fully dissolved. I add the juice of one lemon just to take some of the bite off of the salt. And I chu that within five minutes. Now what that does is it reroutes that water from going through the urinary system because that's more salt than your kidneys are designed to be able to filter it one time. So it reheats that water through the colon and it takes everything with it. So what you do is you chug that mixture, lay on your left side for 30 minutes or so, massage your abdomen, loosen up some waste products that have built up in the lining of the intestines over time. Then switch sides, lay on your right side for a little bit longer. Speaker 2 00:06:04 And by this time you'll be feeling the urge to go to the bathroom. Try to resist that. Hold it for a little bit of time, let all that water build up in the intestines. And then once you get where it's just where you know it's really time, go to the bathroom, let the magic happen and everything will come out. Things will come out that you don't even think you ate. Trust me on this. If you want to reset, this is the best way to do it. And, uh, it, it doesn't cost any money. You know, how much is a table to an assault a penny? And it's a way that you can get back on track. And once you've flushed everything out, you're gonna be more motivated to just put good things in. So when I know that I've been off plan and not eating the ti the way that I normally do, this is how I get back on track, the salt water flush Speaker 1 00:06:55 And you do the right thing. Take care of the system. Give us something that might actually enjoy. One question on that one doc. Uh, the water. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. Um, I I guess you recommend, uh, room temperature. Speaker 2 00:07:08 I'm glad you asked actually. Warm. I like warm water. Yeah. Yep. That way. Um, because it goes through your system so fast, there's really not enough time to get it up to body temp. So I like to do warm water with that. And like I said, the lemon juice is just a way to, to make it more palatable because this does not taste good. You're gonna want to chug it fast. So it's best to just hold your nose, chug it down as fast as you can and, and let it do its thing. I would. Okay. And as far as frequency, I wouldn't do this more than about once a month. Speaker 1 00:07:37 Great. That would probably prevent a lot of people from doing those ens that I'm sure they just absolutely love. Speaker 2 00:07:44 Yeah. Coffee Speaker 1 00:07:46 Well just Yeah. En period. Right. That's so much easier way to go about Speaker 2 00:07:50 It. The famous actor, the western guy, John Wayne, they say it's a legend. You know, they say that he died with over 50 pounds of waste built up in his intestines that had just been marinating there for, for years. And people in generally carry around, carry around a few pounds of fecal matter that's just caked on to the lining of their intestines. The salt water flush is a way to help to sweep that out along with eating plenty of fiber in your diet. Plenty of vegetables, plenty of prebiotic fiber that we talked about on the, on a previous episode. Speaker 1 00:08:23 You know, uh, another point about that too, a simulation, which we're gonna do a podcast on that we're gonna do digestion, a simulation and elimination. We may have touched on that once before, but that's a good point there. I mean, if you've got this impacted colon like John Wayne did, even when he is taking in something that may be beneficial for him, how much is he actually assimilating through the intestines? If he's got that much junk covering it, how can he even know what it feels like to feel great? Um, if he's not getting the benefits of the nutrients by which he's eating, which most of of us aren't, people don't realize this. You know, let's just just say your colon is, um, large as a quarter and by the time you are in your thirties, you probably got the diameter of maybe a penny for everything to get through. Right. And then of course to assimilate anything healthy through the intestinal lining to get through all that built up crud, gunk. Yeah. On the pipes, if you will. Speaker 2 00:09:19 Yeah. And, uh, you asked about the water that I use and like I said, it's always gonna be spring water. Sure. I always choose spring water to avoid chemicals that they add to water. And one of those chemicals that I want to avoid is fluoride. And that's something we were talking about earlier. Tell us a little bit about fluoride and why you choose to avoid it. Speaker 1 00:09:37 And that's an hour podcasting itself. But let's just, I was, I was showing you this the other day, there's a book that came out. It's called Malignant Medical Mis. This these is great. One reason why I like this book, and it's got a lot of cutting edge issues on it, is this was all done by PhD's. All right? So the term there was no dog and hunt for this. So this, they didn't have bias. They weren't being funded by, for example, the manufacturers of fluoride. Um, any toothpaste company or, or whatnot. And then the same thing, we'll talk about the cholesterol in there too. There's no sta drug company that was supplying this. And so it's some pretty awesome stuff. But getting into fluoride, um, you know, they were talking about, uh, the highest consumption of fluoride, for example, in various countries. And the, uh, United States, we, we consume about, um, supplies about 60% of the water with fluoride. And the interesting thing is Ireland is 66%, well, little Diddy about Ireland, the highest amount of dental caries is in that small country Speaker 2 00:10:44 Cavities. Speaker 1 00:10:45 Yeah, that's right. So you have the highest fluoride intake in the country with the worst cavities. Hmm. And here again, we're right behind them at 60 and Canada's at 55%. And then you take some of these other countries like, um, uh, New Zealand, Sweden, and even the UK is UK's 10% and Denmark. And these people have some of the best, uh, dental caries. So just something to think about. Here's another interesting thing too. This was in 1975. This was in the book. The US Food and Drug Administration explicitly designated fluoride as noted, repeat, not generally recognized as safe. Speaker 2 00:11:32 So they don't recommend that you're taking fluoride Speaker 1 00:11:34 Correcto and permitted no fluoride whatsoever to be added to food are over the counter dietary supplements. Nevertheless, the Department of Health Education and Welfare, which is now Health and Human Services, exempted fluorinated water from this ban. Mm. Oh and I guess toothpaste too for that matter. Right. Okay. Including fluorinated water that was used in processed foods. Speaker 2 00:12:05 So they're recommending that you don't put fluoride in any water or food, but health and human services healthy. You know what, we're gonna do it anyway. Yeah. Speaker 1 00:12:12 You know, we, everybody, everybody, everything else is exempt except for, you know, the general public's drinking water. And like I said, once again, you're looking at the toothpaste as well. Speaker 2 00:12:21 Um, well, you know, they do that under the guise of it being prevention for cavities. Any dentist will claim that fluoride is crucial for preventing cavities. Yet we have an enormous amount of cavities here. Speaker 1 00:12:34 And most people are unaware of this. Yeah, we do. That's what I'm saying. Exactly. When you look at the percentage of us, and of course Ireland with the highest. And the other thing with this is that, you know, it wasn't actually the American Dental Association who came up with a fluoride idea that was sold to them by fertilizer manufacturers. Speaker 2 00:12:52 Cause fluoride is, is waste product from fertilizer. And they wanted, they wanted someone to buy that from them, basically. Right? Speaker 1 00:12:59 That's correct. And you know, they don't allow it to be put in the landfill. Right. So you can't dump fluoride into a landfill, but guess where you can dump it or water. There you go. Yeah. Uh, again, calcium is a strong antagonist of fluoride. So it reduces the concentration in the plasma and inhibits the absorption, absorption from the intestine of fluoride. Now if it's an antagonist, calcium, what are teeth made? Speaker 2 00:13:25 So it prevents the absorption of calcium. Mm-hmm. Speaker 1 00:13:28 <affirmative>. Well, calcium actually is an antagonist of fluoride and it reduces the concentration of the fluoride in the plasma. So that's what it's designed to do. I'll set the toxicity of that. So whyt, we brushing our teeth bones with it. Calcium. Right. Calcium teeth. Right. So, and listen, they also here too, that, you know, when they talk about breaking down the fluoride, I mean, and out of the, uh, the stone and most of these phosphates, by the way, are out of Florida. It, uh, it says here, had the fluoride ion been left than the rock, the fertilizer would have been too toxic to use. Speaker 2 00:14:03 Hmm. Speaker 1 00:14:04 But not too toxic for Speaker 2 00:14:06 General. So its too toxic for plants to grow basically. Yes. Speaker 1 00:14:09 Remember I think I mentioned this too, that Fluor fluoride, I think is like a, I wanna say its somewhere on like a grade five toxicity and lead's grade four. Yeah. So we know how bad lead is. Right. Come on people. Now we're okay. You know, <laugh> no lead in the paint. We know that it causes brain related toxicity damage, but here we are with the fluoride. Just, you know, Speaker 2 00:14:30 Here's what I find most interesting about fluoride is that they administer fluoride to patients who have an overactive thyroid. So when your thyroid is hyperactive or when your metabolism is too fast, basically they will give you fluoride to slow down your metabolism. Now what happens when you're taking in fluoride, when your metabolism is not overactive, when it's just normal, it's still gonna slow down your metabolism. So when you have an entire population that is taking in fluoride through their drinking water, what's gonna happen to that population as a whole? Well you would expect obesity to be a, a pandemic and what's happening. Well, Speaker 1 00:15:12 It is, it is. You know, good point here. We were talking last, I think we were talking on the last podcast about the fact of the, of the thyroid related issues. And we were talking about the armor thyroid and we were talking about how important iodine is. That was last week. Well, here we go. Remember, that's a halogen, fluoride halogen. So if I wanna slow the thyroid down function and make it hypo Yeah. Throw a bunch of fluoride at it because it's right the opposite of what it really wants, which is the iodine. Another reason why I was saying earlier about how the 17 year olds are now starting to show up with hypothyroid related issues cuz they're dumping on this flooring and bromine and chlorine and I in the water. So, good point. And now it makes sense why it would slow that down. Right? You wanna slow that thing down and almost put, almost make a stop. Hypo. There you Speaker 2 00:15:52 Go. So you said fluoride is a neurotoxin. Right. When I, I grew up on well water, so I didn't get any fluoride growing up. So my mom took me to the dentist and that dentist convinced her that I needed to be taking fluoride tablets, megadose a fluoride. So they gave me a few fluoride tablets, megadose. And within months of me taking that, my vision went from being great to being a negative 5.5 in both eyes. So it, it could be a coincidence, but what else would've caused that? My vision was fine. And now, and I've had to wear contacts ever since. I believe that had something to do with it. And I, since I've been an adult and since I've been aware of what fluoride really is, I haven't drank it at all. That's why we go to the spring is to avoid, mainly to avoid fluoride. And fluoride also has a few other things that it does. And one of those things, now this one would be considered a little bit more out there, but the, uh, a large percentage of the holistic medical community will say that fluoride will calcify your panal gland. You know, the gland in your brain that, uh, releases melatonin. They say that the panal gland will become calcified because of, of the intake of fluoride. So that's just a little aside there. Speaker 1 00:17:10 Okay. And what does the panal gland regulate? Melatonin hormone? Melatonin as well? Sleep. Speaker 2 00:17:16 Sleep, exactly. Speaker 1 00:17:17 Sleep pattern. Oh, that's in the book here. Uh, page 2 64, a study of 29,000 elementary school children in Tucson, Arizona showed much more tooth decay when the flow, when the fluoride level in the drinking water was highest. Speaker 2 00:17:35 That's the opposite of what a dentist will tell you. That's an opposite of what dentists are taught. They're absolutely not trying to mislead you. They're, they're teaching you what they've been taught. But I believe that what they've been taught is, is incorrect. Speaker 1 00:17:47 It is In page 64, let's go down, down a little farther. The only only practical and effective public measure for the prevention and control of dental caries is the limitation of fluoride content and the drinking water boom. Speaker 2 00:18:07 So the opposite of what we do, Speaker 1 00:18:09 Right, Exactly. Remember these are, these are PhDs. These guys have no dog and hunt. That's why I like this book. Speaker 2 00:18:16 I'm sure that the avoidance of sugar would make, would have a big impact as well, but yeah. Speaker 1 00:18:20 Yeah. No adequate evidence. Flo Okay, hold on. Fluoride supplements and topical application, page 2 66, No adequate evidence for the effectiveness of fluoride supplements as pills or drops. Our topical applications of fluoride by means of toothpaste or dental carries has ever been presented. Hmm. So no studies have ever been done. This is just hypothetical. Speaker 2 00:18:50 So what we're learning here is that the addition of fluoride to water fluoridated toothpaste and fluoride tablets through supplementation, none of that is evidence based. Speaker 1 00:19:04 Correct. None of that's evidence based. And nothing that I've read shows this ProHealth in any way. And a matter of fact contradictory, I mean to what basically is out there. Speaker 2 00:19:15 So what that's called is consensus medicine. Consensus medicine is when it's not based on evidence, it's based on well it's just what we've always done. And that's, it seems to be what fluoridation is. Interesting. Speaker 1 00:19:28 Well, the same way as everything that we do out here is ran today anyway, You get it to the media, the media shoots it out there and uh, nobody verifies anything. And it's fact, Jack, cause I saw it on the internet. Somebody showed it to me on the tv. Like I said, you don't see broccoli commercials on television, do you? No, that's right. Cause you don't need to, Speaker 2 00:19:48 You gotta question this stuff, you know, you can't just take it at face value. You can't take, Look, I don't want what people hear on this podcast to be Speaker 1 00:19:56 To Speaker 2 00:19:56 Taken at face value. You look into this stuff, you can find the stuff on your own. And I don't want what uh, patients are told by anyone, any practitioner, doctor or otherwise to be taken without doing their own research. Because at the end of the day, you are responsible for your own health, not your doctor. You have to take personal responsibility for your health. And you can do that by learning, researching, empowering with YouTube, with the internet, with Google, you can learn anything you want. Speaker 1 00:20:25 So with, um, knowledge comes power. Right. And, um, it's your body. It needs to be your decision. Speaker 2 00:20:33 Yeah. That's the goal. Well, Doc, I gotta get outta here. I've got an appointment here in about 30 minutes and I gotta get to Homewood. So let's wrap this one up. But, uh, good podcast. Speaker 1 00:20:44 Excellent, brother. Appreciate it. Go see the baby girl. Speaker 2 00:20:47 Hey, you're, uh, you'll, you're heading out, uh, here towards the end of the week. You're going to Dallas for a, for a seminar, right? Speaker 1 00:20:53 That's correct. Start putting in the foundation on the book. So, Speaker 2 00:20:59 Well, we look forward to hearing updates on the book you're writing and uh, yeah, I'm excited to read it. It's gonna be a good one. So, Speaker 1 00:21:07 Well I'm looking forward to it too, to get this thing rolling. In the meantime, we'll just give bits and pieces out through podcasts. Sound Speaker 2 00:21:13 Good? Sounds good, buddy. Talk to you Speaker 1 00:21:14 Soon. Have a great week everyone.
