    Hi Greg, loving your episodes with John Brisson.
    At the top of the latest ep you mentioned John had sent you a shopping list of things to buy to help your allergies. I was hoping you might share that with me/us? I too get allergies and would love to get some ideas.

    Thanks!

    I agree,I also really enjoyed Mr. Brisson. Although it might be personalized for G.C., we would probably benefit from knowing some common items on his list. Heavy allergy/sinus sufferer here too. *sneezes

    Yes, super valuable new ways of thinking from John couple episodes. I love how it's kinda a dual subject show. Health and then horror lol. There is no light without darkness and all that. I've made a few changes based on John. Whole foods. 90% less grain anything, added honey, pink salt, and a variety of other herbs and and few other suggestions a few weeks ago. I feel better, a little more energy but weight is holding strong, I'm still dialing it in so to speak.

    My experience

    Allergies

    - MSM (organic sulfur) (ingest with water, not fruit juice) , you might also be able to find herbal mixtures that work too.
    note: homeopathy didn't help me.
    (consider trying MMS (miracle mineral soluiton): https://www.curezone.org/forums/am.asp?i=1080061


    Gut

    - Read https://dadamo.com/
    - MSM especially if the gut is inflamed (feels like it has a wound (burning sensation) which is a sign of a spot which is highly permeable.

    - Undigested proteins from the mouth put a strain on the gut bacteria. Proteins are digested in the mouth by enzymes. (leaky gut is related to what's called "protein intolerance").
    - Antibiotics in meat, and pesticideds and herbicides (which are classified as antibiotics) in grains decrease the amount of gut bacteria.

    - Type A: Stop eating meat, eggs (chicken, fish (cod, organic salmon) and soy are easier to break down), dairy, and at least lower your consumption of grains (including cornstarch, popcorn) and peanuts. Wheat proteins are the worst (read "Grain Brain". Use rye, spelt, and other rare grains. Also avoid potatoes, tomatos, vinegar and mustard.


    - Take a digestive enzyme supplement to avoid depleting your body's enzyme production:
    Continue to stay away from red meat and dairy products. Give your gut a chance to rebuild itself properly so that is able to deal with the proteins that slip by, and digest all the food it receives quickly so that it doesn't start to rot and break down the gut lining.
    https://emedicine.medscape.com/article/931548-overview
    - Eat more fruits (digestive enzymes) and broccoli (calcium) cauliflower (read http://dadamo.com 's book)
    - Steam cook the vegetables (to preserve as many enzymes and nutrients in the food).
    - Chew your food, especially when you eat grains because enzymes are more effective than gut bacteria at breaking down proteins.
    - Pesticides are antibiotics: so stay away from non-organic chicken, salmon, grains and everything else. If meat and grains are not organic the antibiotics will make it more difficult for the enzymes and the gut bacteria to do their job.
    - Play calming music to tune out stress.
    - Stand up, walk around more, remember to also wake up your ass: https://unlockmyglutes.com - https://chirunning.com/chiwalking/
    - Less effective at opening up the cell wall of proteins are probiotics, but use a probiotic supplement (with the highest amount of bifidus bacteria) a few times a year to support the gut (see Brisson's book). If your body has enough enzymes, the proteins are taken care of in the mouth.
    The kind of probiotics you should look for contain bifidus bacteria.
    - Vitamin B supplement, because you don't get enough from vegetarian food if your stress level is high. If you don't get enough you might get depressed and later become manic depressive or schizophrenic.
    - Drink chamomile herbal tea (to deal with thyroid issues like fatigue)
    - Calcium citrate
    (do not ingest calcium and magnesium at the same time of the day)
    - Wear orange fabrics to stimulate the stomach chakra
    - Increase your stomach's level of stomach acid (hydrochloric acid).

    important: be careful if you ingest supplements in powder form (except MSM), if your gut is damaged. Leave the supplement in your mouth for a while before you swallow or else some of it might pass through the gut lining like undigested proteins.

    Thyroid

    Before you developed problems with your gut, you may have experienced some sort of trauma, which weakened your body energetically and made it unable to defend itself against the latent Epstein-Barr virus. Proteins that enter your bloodstream put a toll on your immune system and you, in addition to symptoms of leaky gut, will confuse the symptoms associated with Epstein-Barr virus infection with a leaky gut, so: eat enzyme rich foods:
    https://www.medicalmedium.com/thyroid-healing
    https://www.medicalmedium.com/life-changing-foods
    (also available as audiobooks)

    Stress

    - Chamomile herbal tea
    - Vitamin B supplement to fuel the nervous system (brain)
    - Magnesium
    - Non-synthetic Vitamin C
    - Calcium citrate
    - read up on amino acids

    Sleep while playing meditation music. ( http://7digital.com search: zen, relax, spa, meditation), and play relaxing music during the day. You'll probably feel even more empowered if you listen to upbeat indie rock, hip hop, when you're calm.

    Great tips man, I've transitioned to a 95% whole food, grain and dairy free diet. My goal is weight loss. A month into the following changes, I feel great, but weight is holding steady.

    My diet is mostly potatoes (baby reds and sweet potatoes organic if you can believe labels still.) Carrots, broccoli, onions, peppers tomatoes, chicken, fresh duck and bass caught locally. I stopped drinking soda and beer, and whiskey. 3 6 packs of microbrew in the last month is all I've drank. Shout out to Michigan brewed beer. I've been drinking water with a lemon slice, and tea with honey. A calcium vit C supplement. I'm a farmer so I get exercise in the sun.

    I had some dark addiction days for most my 20s, been sober 4 years and weight has been a constant issue. 5'8" and never been under 200 sober. Ive suffered from gynecomastia bad all my life. That makes love life hard for a guy lol. My research continues. Any tips?
    I've heard the glyphosate is potentially related to thyroid and gynecomastia, it's hard to totally escape the posion of our world.
