    Viruses evolve to become less virulent with time: the law of Declining Virulence

    Let’s review the long known law of declining virulence which describes how viruses and parasites evolve to become less virulent over time as they infect more hosts.

    Dr. Ben Lynch on Gene Variants that Impact Your Mood, Memory and Gut Health

    Dr. Ben Lynch on Gene Variants that Impact Your Mood, Memory and Gut Health

    Dr. Ben Lynch discusses more about histamine, gut health and why gallbladder issues are so common and tips to optimize. We also look at gene testing and why considering clusters of interrelated genes and their associated networks instead of myopically focusing on one good or bad gene variant is much more useful for determining your health weaknesses and strengths.

    Key Takeaways:
    06:23 Genetic testing identifies a potential susceptibility to health and mental health complications. It is one of many tools.
    06:50 Dirty Genes book is full of quizzes which identifies genetic issues without doing genetic testing.
    07:45 Lifestyle habits are passed down through generations, so issues may not be caused by genes.
    08:35 Less than 5% of cancers are heritable. Only 1% of Parkinson’s is genetic.
    09:25 Conventional medicine using pharmacological interventions are by force. Naturopathic and functional medicine is nurture and restorative, with an appreciation for the biochemical network.
    10:50 Look at genes in a wholistic way. There are about 18,000 genes in our bodies.
    12:10 A single variant is minuscule compared to the other 18,000 genes communicating. And there are many other variables that make studying a single variant complicated. For example, is the study subject sleeping in a hot or cold room, mouth breathing, has a sleep partner snoring, and loaded with stress? It appears as though epigenetics overrides the majority of other provocations.
    13:40 You must look at the research with a wholistic view. Look at many studies.
    14:35 You do not need genetic testing. Listen to how your body is feeling and give those areas in need more love, attention, and protection.
    16:12 Some genes are highly influenced by epigenetics and others are not. Sometimes is it a matter of workload for the gene.
    18:00 If you have the MTHFR variant, you are less likely to die from malaria. You may have a reduced ability to methylate folate, but methylfolate can be found in leafy green vegetables and animal livers.
    20:40 At some point, mutated genes helped your ancestors survive. Our genes are adapting to our new environment, and we are passing this on to our kids.
    23:20 Dr. Lynch had to choose 7 genes out of 18,000 for the book. He chose MTHFR because it effects the entire genome. Two glutathione genes were chosen because oxidative stress effects the entire genome.
    24:00 CMT and MAOA were chosen for their impact upon brain function.
    24:30 DAO works on histamine metabolism in the gut, which can cause leaky gut.
    25:00 PEMT: Solid cell membranes create cell membranes and create storage for histamine and your neurotransmitters. This phosphatidyl choline synthesizing gene highly polymorphic.
    26:45 Nitric oxide is important for emergent heart issues.
    26:50 By focusing on supporting these 7 genes, you are positively influencing all of your genes.
    28:45 Phosphatidyl choline keeps your bile from being thick and sludgy. You need 10 parts phosphatidyl choline to one part cholesterol to have your bile flow.
    30:23 If you are an obese woman in your 40s and still fertile, you will struggle with a gallbladder issue, especially if you have a PEMT variant. The primary stone in the gallbladder is formed from cholesterol. It stems from fatty liver.
    32:44 The phosphatidyl choline supplement is used to improve bile flow, but since it is a lipid, it cannot be fully absorbed to improve bile flow. With PEMT variant, reduce consumption of fats and reduce the workload on that gene.
    33:45 Visceral manipulation is a near instant fix for bile flow. It is massage to compress your liver. You will have an amazing bo

    New Report: Common Health Conditions Linked with High Risk for COVID-19: Anxiety, Obesity, Blood Pressure and More

    New Report: Common Health Conditions Linked with High Risk for COVID-19: Anxiety, Obesity, Blood Pressure and More

    New data from 4.8 million hospitalizations finding 94.9% of COVID-19 patients had very common, yet largely preventable, underlying health conditions, including:
    -High blood pressure
    -Lipid imbalances (commonly caused by insulin resistance)
    -Obesity
    -Anxiety

    Data from 4.8 million hospital visits debunk the media's constant lie that 'perfectly healthy people are dropping like flies' from the virus.

    We review new data collected from 800 US hospitals and 4.8 million medical records from March 2020 to March 2021. The report found that of 540,000 hospitalized for C*19, only 27,000 (5.5%) did not have a chronic health condition.
    Over 513,000 of the 540,000 (94.9%) hospitalized for C*19 had at least one chronic health condition; some had as many as 10 or more. (Needless to say a super majority of these conditions reported with high frequencies are created by people's own nutrition, exercise and lifestyle choices: insulin resistance, obesity, mental health issues and more.)
    The presence of two or more underlying conditions increases the odds of death nearly 2 fold compared to those with none; 10 or more conditions increases odds of death by nearly 4 fold.
    What's even worse--considering the constant media fear mongering--anxiety was found to be the second strongest predictor of death, after obesity. This is after adjusting for age and other variables.
    Let’s use this new report to nudge our friends to start making better nutrition, exercise and lifestyle choices.

    Avoid this Common Fasting-Meal Timing Mistake + How Insulin Impacts Your Circadian Clock System

    Avoid this Common Fasting-Meal Timing Mistake + How Insulin Impacts Your Circadian Clock System

    New research suggests blood sugar and insulin surges can impair our circadian clock system, possibly leading to sleep disruptions and more. We then discuss how to avoid the common meal-timing mistake many make when Intermittent Fasting or eating OMAD, adding more evidence to the idea that we should start feeding earlier in the day and start our fast in the early evening.
