      1. Ok, Mike: I am cracking up at how incredibly intelligent this man is compared to my not-so-smart, pea-brained self. The ONLY reason I can understand any of what he is saying is that you are so brilliantly getting clarification and helping with a translation into what seem like “lay person” terms. :-)) I am going to have to listen to this a couple more times, but on the first run-through I have gotten that it is really important to grow our own broccoli sprouts and sandwich them between slices of daikon radish. (Not sure what that was for, but I have heard so much about the benefits of broccoli sprouts that I am re-committing to grow some more of them–and pick up some daikon on my next trip to the Asian market.) Also, the antibiotic resistence is so bad now that we are better off using herbs such as berbery, uva ursi and or ionic silver and it can take as long as 12 months to reestablish a fortress of beneficial bacteria. QUESTION: What do you do with those herbs? Make a tea? Put them in capsules? How are they used? Well, there you go! That is all this dummy got out of this on the first run through. Subtitles perhaps would be beneficial? I will listen again and see what else I can glean. Thanks so much.

        1. Hi Kate, This IS a great interview and Mike did a great job. With these more technical interviews, for me, it really helps to have the transcript to read at the same time. Sulphorafane (Broccoli Seed/sprouts) comes up in a few of the interviews. Yesterday it was in the Eve Plews interview. I was pondering your herb question and thought of essential oils. Dr. Baker says that the molecules are so small that they not only penetrate the skin, but the cell membrane and even the blood/brain barrier. I like to snip off a sprig and make a cup of tea every day.

          1. Thanks Nancy! Yes, I agree–I need to buy this and get the transcript. I recently started using essential oils–I mostly use frankincense. It helps reduce inflammation in my sinuses. I am not autistic (I don’t think?) but my mother was a sugarholic as I have been my whole life. I have taken antibiotics A LOT over the entire course of my life and prednisone A LOT over the past 20 years for allergies resulting in nasal polyps. My sinus problems have been debilitating and I am always looking for answers. A few months ago I had an absolute aspirin-like melt down after consuming too many dried dates, which led me to research what was in foods that was also in aspirin. Then I found out that there are people out there who have issues with salicitic acid? I think that is somewhat close to proper spelling. Also, I have long suspected phenols. Still have not figured it out, but I keep trying. I have learned some applicable tips from this information. Thanks again.

      2. Kate Johansson, there’s not a whole bunch to figure out here. There is so much help on-line to go sugar-free. My guess is that your sinuses and entire body/mind will thank you. If I and my 3 adult daughters broke our sugar addiction so can you, even giving up out passion–ice cream!
        .Refined sugar is poison (also tons of Web info about this). 90% of people would rather die than change. How about belonging to the 10%?

    1. Thanks Nancy: I went and watched it. I am so depressed now. I think I am having problems with mold–but I can’t afford to move out and get rid of everything. I watched the moldy movie recently too. I have tested positive over and over again at the ear, nose throat doc’s allergy tests. If that is what is ailing me, I am just totally screwed. Frightening.

  1. Oh my land.
    Mike you are fantastic.
    So can he write a book, or papers or something as I feel I am sorta back in Micro Biology.
    So when is the next summit on Nutrition wirh RDN’s Integrative Functional Medicine Therpists, CCN’s and Janis Junga on HI?
    We need tons more, and we need it soon.
    Martha Herbert talks about Systems. We need people who help parents with Healing Systems and lifestyle management, as Mom’s are burnt out….

  2. Loved listening, and hope this interview is available on the open replay day…as this balance discussion is all-important!

  3. Wow! This could be one particular of the most useful blogs We’ve ever arrive across on this subject. Basically Wonderful. I’m also a specialist in this topic so I can understand your hard work.
