Welcome to the green wisdom health podcast, with Doctor Stephen and Janet Lewis, where you will learn about natural solutions to common ailments. And now, here are your hosts doctor Stephen and Janet Lewis. Hello and welcome to the green wisdom health show. I'm Janet Lewis. And I'm doctor Lewis. And today we are going to discuss heavy metal toxicity. The name of this show is called symptoms of heavy metal toxicity. Doctor Lewis, can you tell us why you felt the need to discuss heavy metals? He's thinking about why he's discussing heavy metals. It goes back to the 70s in the music, but no, not really. Well, you know, I've talked about being toxic off and on for many, many years, even before we got into this. And I noticed that as I tried to fix people's joint pain, nerve pain, musculoskeletal pain, that if I would put people on something that could displace toxins, heavy metals and others, that their pain would get much, much better. Much more quickly, they could achieve or we could achieve the goals with fewer adjustments and less time. So I think we should always be taking up new trends to help our bodies detox, not just metals, but other things. And the side effect of being cleaner is deep sleep. You know, most of us don't get the deep restorative sleep, which not having good sleep actually helps induce leaky gut, which we've talked about. And that can lead to insulin resistance. So when we talk insulin resistance, we're talking about pre diabetic or diabetic. And it can lack of the sleep can lead to actually autoimmune disorders. We're seeing more and more autoimmune disorders and people say, well, what's chiropractor doing? Talking about, oh, no immune disorders. Well, guess what? That has a lot to do with osteoarthritis, which I've already gotten most of that podcast written for the future about how osteoarthritis can be helped with nutrients as well as the chiropractic adjustments. But to get deep restorative sleep puts you in a better position to detox and heavy metal is a big part of that. You know, I think a lot of people out there don't really realize they're even exposed to heavy metals and they're probably thinking, well, I'm not around any of that. So, I'm not really sure how it pertains to me, but there's good metals like zinc and copper and iron that are beneficial for your health, but there's also some very toxic ones like cadmium, arsenic, chromium, lead mercury, you know, and people are like. Yeah, and where do you get those bad ones from? Is everyone exposed to one or more of those? Absolutely. And people say, I'm not exposed to that. It's like, yeah, you are, you just don't know it. I mean, if you walked into a newly sprayed build and has had pesticides in it, or even new building materials or the outgassing of carpets and those are not necessarily metals, but they can be seen in styrene and Styrofoam cups. There're so many toxins in the world. If you're not exposed to it, one of the polar bears have thyroid problems in osteoporosis. We don't spray anything up there. And we'll probably go over a list today. And I've always said, please don't try to diagnose yourself at all, but if you don't diagnose yourself off this list because of these lists, we may say, well, this is hypothyroidism. Well, it could also be leaky good. It can be chronic fatigue, syndrome. And you know, I had a kid one-time, young man who was not very developed, and you could tell he had some problems.
Supporting Long-Haul Syndrome
Many people have been experiencing long-lasting symptoms after going through an illness. The cause of these lingering symptoms is still unknown, but some people have reported that certain supplements and lifestyle changes have reduced some of their symptoms like fatigue and brain fog. In this week's episode, Supporting Long-Haul Syndrome, we'll discuss some things you can do that may help support your body in dealing with these symptoms.

Welcome to the green wisdom health podcast, with doctor Steven and Janet Lewis, where you will learn about natural solutions to common ailments. And now, here are your hosts doctor Stephen and Janet Lewis. Hello and welcome to this week's edition of the green wisdom health show. I'm Janet Lewis. And I'm doctor Lewis. And today we are going to discuss a topic you guys keep asking us about that we keep trying to dance around. So we're going to keep dancing, but we're going to give you our best shot at explaining what we do and what's going on. Now that we have your curiosity, you're wondering what it is. I know. But we can't tell you. We have to just kind of talk in code. The name of the show is called treating long, I'm sorry. It's not treating. We're supporting long haul syndrome. So we do not treat that. We just give you things that might help you get over long term chronic sickness. And you'll just have to fill in the blank on what that is. But, you know, many things can help with that sort of thing. And we also have a symptom list of you figuring out if you have these long haul symptoms or the syndrome. So chronic immune system depletion. There you go. So we're going to tell you the things that we do, the things we recommend because we're getting another round of people getting sick and we want to make sure you stay healthy, especially going into this fall, you know, we've got Saharan dust attacking us now and people have a bunch of allergies. And then you have this virus stuff that just seems to be on the loose. So doctor Lewis, I think you should go ahead and explain what we're doing. You know, before we started this, we asked God to help organize my mind. You know if you've listened to me before organization in my mind is pretty much nonexistent and I'm way off the charts today. I've got too much to say and not enough time to get there. So what we're talking about is helping your body boost immune system. I'm a chiropractor, so I always approach you from a musculoskeletal sense. But if you support musculoskeletal, you're supporting all the cells, which are supporting your immune system. So we'll get into that. I wanted to talk about mushrooms and Janet kind of changed that. I'm going to talk about mushrooms anyway. Maybe he's wanting to smoke mushrooms. I'm not sure which one, but we're using them for immune system. Yeah, and I do not treat cancer, God knows you need a hematologist that understands natural stuff too, but when Janet's first said, we talk about mushrooms and she changed her mind. She never changes her mind about me, but everything else may be. There's a lot of cancer books. And again, I don't treat cancer, of course, but mushroom extracts are used sometimes it's mataki, sometimes shiitake, a turkey tail lines made. And the beta glucans that you can get from that. And this is in some of the books that talk about how some people natural doctors treat cancer. And that's certainly not the only thing you should be doing if you have cancer, but other things that are anti proliferative, which means they kind of help keep the cancer and if it works for cancer, it's going to work for immune system. And you people that have chronic fatigue, some of the anti prolific agents are selenium, fish oil, garlic, cat's claw, mataki, diffraction vitamin a, vitamin K, of course, in bovine cartilage, which actually we've been proved our collagen has just come in again.

Welcome to the green wisdom health podcast, with doctor Steven and Janet Lewis, where you will learn about natural solutions to common ailments. And now, here are your hosts doctor Stephen and Janet Lewis. Hello and welcome to this week's edition of the green wisdom health show. I am Janet Lewis. And I'm doctor Lewis. And we have our very special speaker back with us today. Casey, who works with one of our manufacturers to bring you the wonderful products that we currently have. Including the new one that we just started carrying called ageless cell revive. So the name of this show, and he's going to tell us why it works. It's called ageless mind. And increased energy. And those of you that are having the bad side effects of the long-term COVID symptoms, you probably want to listen up to this because this is going to have a lot of information pertaining to that in ways that you can get your energy back, your mind back, get rid of a lot of your fatigue. So doctor Lewis, what would you like to tell us before we add Casey to it? Well, since it's so good for the brain, I would like to ask you, if you can remember to take it, do you really need it? Thanks. Go ahead, guys. Take and run with it. Yeah, thank you for having me again. It's always, it's always a pleasure to be back out in east Texas. Being that you're from. Yeah, exactly. We want to talk about where I'm from. But over Dallas way. But yeah, this is a we gave him his green card to get him into Texas. I'm doctor Lewis approved, hopefully. Yep. But yeah, this is a really exciting new product. There's been a lot of ageless cell revive that is. There's a lot of chatter right now. I would say over the last couple of years around this idea of membrane lipid replacement therapy. And what I mean by that. So what ageless cell revive is is it's a sunflower, lecithin derived phospholipid complex. And why that is so important is that phospholipids are an extremely critical component to all biological membranes. In the body, from the membrane that lines your digestive tract, the membrane that lines your bronchial passages, the membranes that make up the membranes that protect and house your both your cells and then also membrane intermembrane that houses your mitochondria. So and that goes along with the podcast we did earlier about diabetes and metabolic syndrome or syndrome X. The main cause of stroke, for example, is syndrome X, which is the same thing as metabolic syndrome leading to diabetes or type two diabetes. And as chiropractor I was always interested in the demyelination, things that DeMille are like infections, trauma, which is what I took care of as a chiropractor. Inflammation, which specifically diabetes, but any kind of inflammation, lack of thyroid function that you people with low thyroid, it goes further than just checking your thyroid. Nutritional deficiencies and that's where Casey just shines like a brand new penny. Lack of vitamin B and allergies such as gluten. So we're happy to have him here because he kind of has the intelligence and the knowledge to get technical. So I'm just like throw it in like God sorted out. Yeah, so all those things you just mentioned is that like the simpler version of what Casey's saying about the mitochondrial function. Yeah, because Janet told me I get two technical and one case it gets technical. She didn't say anything to him. She just smiled and said, hey, Casey. Well,
The Secret Enemy of Weight Loss
One of the most common issues we see in people today is difficulty maintaining a healthy weight. Weight loss is a hot topic and a booming industry, but so many products just don't work. Unfortunately, there is no magic fix for this, but there is one often overlooked aspect of weight management, and that is insulin. Insulin is an extremely important hormone responsible for regulating several metabolic processes and ensuring cells get the energy they need. Due to this, insulin has a strong influence on weight management. When the body begins to respond less to insulin, it could indicate that you are developing insulin resistance, which can contribute to a variety of health issues. In this week's episode, The Secret Enemy of Weight Loss, we'll discuss insulin's role in metabolism and weight management, as well as some positive lifestyle changes you could make.
The Secret Enemy of Weight Loss

Welcome to the green wisdom health podcast, with doctor Steven and Janet Lewis, where you will learn about natural solutions to common ailments. And now, here are your hosts doctor Stephen and Janet Lewis. Hello and welcome to this week's edition of the green wisdom health show. I'm Janet Lewis. And I'm doctor Lewis. And we are here to give you some inspiring helpful healthful hope. So in a world full of a lot of chaos, hopefully we're bringing you a lot of joy and information and news you can use. So we today are going to talk a little bit about the secret enemy of weight loss because it's summertime and who's not trying to get into that bikini for the beach. But having a little bit of white problems or a lot of weight problems and we're going to talk about what that secret and me is, doctor Lewis has got him captured over here behind the door and he's going to let him loose a little bit and tell us what the enemy has been. He's good at corralling things. So also, we want to mention our collagen people have been asking a lot about when is collagen coming back in. We do not know. The ingredient in there that's a registered trademark called mobily, which is one of the several ingredients in that product that make it work wonderfully and that is the reason why it is so missed, we can not get from the manufacturer because it's trapped in Spain. It is rooster comb. I guess they have special roosters there. I don't know, but they're organic. They're organic rooster combs. Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid can heal in big ways. So I won't go into too many stories there, but it's not here. So that's the bottom line. We don't know what it's coming. People ask if we have a replacement. Not yet. We're waiting for the person that makes that product for us to tell us what they're going to do. They have very high standards. And they don't want to take something out that they may get in. I don't know. If we do it, you're going to know it and we're going to tell you, hey, it didn't come in with this. I don't know what we're going to do. So for the time being that's out and people say, well, what brand should I take? We don't know. I know that they have designs for help, has a pretty good one. I just haven't gotten any kind of feedback from anybody that's just had miraculous results with collagen other than the powdered one we carry. So sorry about that. You know how it is nowadays, so hopefully that's the only product that's doesn't come in for a while, but you know, there could be others. So anyway, doctor Lewis picked this subject today because he is passionate about helping people regain their health and would you like to let the enemy out of the closet you're keeping him in and tell us who the secret enemy of weight loss is. Well, I've had so many people talk bad about me because I'm so blunt and it's like, well you made a sugar coat it and the answer to that is most people would rather have it sugar coat...

I call this the Hashimoto's connection. How did you get involved in chiropractic care and in functional medicine? You know, I was asked that question on a very large podcast one time and I started crying because I saw my daddy died when I was 15 years old. Maybe from ulcerative colitis, but maybe from the drugs they gave him for that. And I knew right then at 15, I was smarter than that. I developed ulcerative colitis whether it was physical or psychological, whatever. And I went to 5 different MDs. I had 5 different diagnoses and 5 different treatments, not one of them that worked. And I love her MDH. Don't misunderstand me.
Is Your Gut Healthy? How to Tell
Many experts believe that a healthy gut is the foundation for overall health, and that keeping your digestive system healthy should be a priority. However, maintaining a healthy gut can be more difficult than it seems due to the toxins we encounter every day. There are many things that can disrupt the delicate balance in your gut, and an imbalanced gut can have many different symptoms. Some of the most common symptoms of poor gut health can include food sensitivities, bloating, poor digestion, and much more. If gut health is not addressed and corrected, it can contribute to the development of certain health conditions over time. In this week's episode, Is Your Gut Healthy? How to Tell, Janet and Dr. Stephen E. Lewis, D.C. discuss how our lifestyles affect gut health, how to know if you probably have a gut issue, and some tips on how to support a healthy gut.
Is Your Gut Healthy? How to Tell
00:00:01 - 00:05:09
Welcome to the green wisdom health podcast, with doctor Steven and Janet Lewis, where you will learn about natural solutions to common ailments. And now, here are your hosts doctor Stephen and Janet Lewis. Hello and welcome to this week's edition of the green wisdom health show. I'm Janet Lewis. And I'm doctor Lewis. And today we are going to talk to you about your gut, which is one of my favorite subjects. It seems everything goes back to it. The name of this show is called is your gut, healthy, and how to tell. And then toward the end of the show, we're going to tell you a very exciting story about one of our patients and his journey with us. So hang on tight, we got a lot to cover. But we wanted to get started with gut health because immune system is out of the gut and people don't understand that. And I'm hoping doctor Lewis will explain to us how that's possible and why it is compromised and what we can do about it. So doctor Lewis, would you tell us what you want us to know about is your gut healthy? Yeah, the quick answer is no it's not. It's just how unhealthy is it. The reason I pretty much say everybody has a gut problem is because we have horrible food. It's not nutrient dense. And yes, food is important, but it's not complete. So the presence of glyphosate and all these chemicals they put on it. One of the things that messes with gut health and causes leaky gut, and I'll get into those symptoms in a minute. Is the presence of gluten, but gluten's not the only bad protein that's in wheat and barley and hops and rye. What is happening is we fertilize our crops with NPK. The plants say, oh my God, I've got this burst of energy. And since I have this, it's like we're feeding our food fast food when we're feeding it NPK. And it grows at an accelerated rate, and it says, oh, I've got to put it out in protein, and people think protein is a good thing. Well, that protein is gluten and other bad proteins. And we have four to 40 times more gluten in our food. In our wheat, especially, than we did just a few short decades ago. Gluten is not a good thing, and we test people. It's like, oh my God, no wonder you can't get well. You got to cut this out. And it's just a varying degrees, but we're seeing more and more of it. Nailed, then we saw, say, 20 years ago, autoimmunity is getting to be it's definitely on the rise in that starts into gut, even if the autoimmune disease is Hashimoto's or Socrates or rheumatoid arthritis. So the excess gluten and glutenin and all kinds of other things. When it causes a leaky gut syndrome, what it really causes is what we say, microbial dysbiosis, which means you don't have the right kind of bacteria yeast and fungus in your guts or the rat ratio. Things that cause leaky gut, we talked about gluten. That's the main thing. Medications, people that do NSAIDs forever, and I just talked to real sweet men. It says, well,
