    Ep 5: DO YOU HAVE TO BE TURKISH TO HAVE BEHÇET'S? - The Behçet's Disease Podcast (How To Beat Behçet's with Maritza Lord)

    If you’re suffering from the symptoms of Behçet’s Disease, it really doesn’t matter if you’re diagnosed or undiagnosed, treated or untreated, there is one question that you’re gonna hear a lot from doctors....

    Are you Turkish? Or, Does your family come from Turkey? Or, Do you have Turkish ancestry that you’re aware of? 🤔

    If you’re listening right now and thinking, why Turkish???

    The reason they wanna know if you come from Turkey, is because they believe that only Turkish people get the disease because that’s where it was first discovered and there are a high numbers of reported Behçet’s cases in Turkey so they’ve made a connection between Behçet’s Disease and Turkey. Get it? No Turkish, no Behçet’s.

    They actually doubted my symptoms were Behçet’s in the beginning because I was not Turkish. But I obviously had Behçet’s because I eventually showed all the symptoms. Then they were like, Ok, Ok, we believe you.... You got Behçet’s!

    So what is the answer to the question, “Do you need to be Turkish to get Behçet’s?” Tune in to find out 😉

    Ep 3: LET'S TALK ABOUT STRESS (Pt2) - The Behçet's Disease Podcast (How To Beat Behçet's with Maritza Lord)

    Last week, we talked about the secret poison causing your flare ups: Stress Overload on a Cellular Level and we said that our flare ups or symptoms are the canary in a stress-overloaded coal mine.

    This week, we’re gonna identify the various stressors that you could be overloading from and we’ll talk about the 2 ways that our bodies respond.

    You’re gonna want to hear this so let’s jump right in!

    We usually think of stress as the emotional fallout from a trauma. right? I used to think of stress as emotional only. I later learned that there are so many forms of stress and that a healthy stress (think exercise, fasting, vaccination) can make you stronger while a toxic stressor (think a long-term combination of difficult relationship/s, anxious/ fearful thoughts, long-term malnutrition, pollution) can lead to disregulation in the body and illness.

    When I had Behcet’s, I didn’t think I had that much stress- no more than anyone else... or so I thought. 🤷‍♀️

    The truth was that stress was as invisible to my world as water is to a fish. I couldn’t see I had stress because it was my entire world! I was bursting at the seams with stress & I didn’t know it! I didn’t know that healthy people experienced life very differently than I did and that my life (and cells) were toxically overloaded with different forms of stress.

    Stress is a normal part of life and virtually every animal on the planet experiences it. I’m sure you’ve heard of the fight of flight response that kicks in when a person or an animal feels under attack. The biggest difference between humans and other animals is the length of time it takes for us to experience that threat. Unlike animals who either escape or die, humans have an infinite number of stressors that feel like threats…. like being cut off in traffic, worrying about health insurance coverage or the outcome of a critical presidential election. Am I right? And those are just a few of the psychological kind. These and other stressors can create a never-ending pattern of anxiety and set your life on a treadmill of fear and anticipation of the next thing about to strike!

    The connection between the mind and body has been proven and is indisputable. When the mind feels the pinch of stress, it creates consequences in your muscles, heart, nervous system and immune system.

    The problem is that our bodies cannot tell the difference between sources of stress- they all feel equally threatening and the sources of stress are endless. In this episode we identify a long list of your possible stressors and talk about our body's 2 ways of responding. One is healthy and the other....is what led to your Behçet's. Let's check it out!

    Ep 2: LET'S TALK ABOUT STRESS, BABY! (Pt1) - The Behçet's Disease Podcast (How To Beat Behçet's with Maritza Lord)

    Today we’re gonna be talking STRESS! 🤯

    Let me tell you a story: In the early 1900’s , coalminers started taking caged canary birds into the mines with them.

    The miners considered them friends and they would even sing to the birds while they worked. You know carbon monoxide, the gas? 

    Then you probably already know that it’ colorless and odorless and leads to death by asphyxiation if exposed to for too long.

    If there was carbon monoxide built up in the mines from an explosion or somethng, the canaries would show distress by swaying or reeling in their cages or even falling off their perches.

    Eek, Let’s put aside the fact that this was an awful way to treat birds.

    This was common practice in mining back then. And when the birds would show distress, it would be a signal to the miners that the mine was contaminated with Carbon Monoxide and they would exit or put on their breathing gear and I hope try to resuscitate the birds.

    Now, what if…. your body is the canary. And when it’s in distress, it has a flare up?

    Sound possible? 🤔

    Well, we're today we're addressing the one toxin in our lives that's just like carbon monoxide and if too much of it builds up in our lives and bodies, it can be a silent poison.

    If you come away from this episode with nothing else, REMEMBER: Symptoms are NOT the problem. Ignoring them IS. 

    And if you got something out of this episode, would you do me a huge favor and Subscribe and review this podcast? Wherever you get your podcasts is great. Apple Podcasts would be awesome!  Let me know what you think! 5 stars for good karma ;)
