Katie: Howdy, and welcome to the “Wellness Mama” podcast. I’m Katie from And this episode took lots of turns that I didn’t anticipate and it was tremendous fascinating. I’m right here with Sydney Ross Singer, who’s a medical anthropologist. He’s the director of the Institute for the Research of Culturogenic Illness and a pioneer of utilized medical anthropology. I do know that’s all a mouthful, however he makes use of his coaching in medication, biochemistry, anthropology, alongside together with his co-researcher and spouse, and so they’ve made some actually groundbreaking discoveries into the cultural causes of illness that hyperlink into lots of the medical causes.

They grew to become breast most cancers researchers when his spouse Soma found a lump in her breast, and so they carried out the world’s first research on the hyperlink between bras and breast most cancers. It’s known as Dressed to Kill. And for 30 years, they’ve been doing further analysis on this space. And we begin there, however we go so many instructions on this podcast, together with a captivating hyperlink between the voice and thyroid well being. And I discussed my private expertise with this that I had not linked till listening to him throughout this episode. He has some actually fascinating analysis on sleep place and it linked to well being, an uncommon remedy for migraines, and a complete lot extra. You can find this episode tremendous fascinating. I actually loved it and I can’t wait to share it with you. So let’s leap in. Sydney, welcome to the podcast.

Sydney: Thanks. Good to be with you, Katie.

Katie: I’m excited to talk right now. And you’re the first medical anthropologist that I’ve gotten to talk with on this podcast. So for anybody not acquainted, are you able to clarify what that’s?

Sydney: Certain. Nicely, I’m kind of a pioneer of utilized medical anthropology. And what which means is I attempt to have a look at how the tradition makes us sick. So I exploit my background in medication, biochemistry, and anthropology to know the physique, after which attempt to determine how the tradition teaches us to do issues to our our bodies that have an effect on us and repair our well being, the cultural patterns,and habits. I imply, it’s one thing so simple as smoking or ingesting. These are all cultural habits that we’re taught, and so they clearly have physiological impacts. And so we research, like, different ones that individuals don’t take into consideration or that always are tough to consider as a result of they’re so central to the tradition that individuals don’t even wanna deal with them, deal with these points.

Katie: Gotcha. Okay. That is smart. And the explanation I needed to have you ever on right now, I feel I first discovered your work and linked to you years and years in the past. And that is one thing that I’ve written about, however we’ve by no means tackled on this podcast, and that’s the hyperlink between breast illness and bras and likewise, I’d guess, lots of different issues that we’re doing culturally. I do know there’s lots of totally different instructions that we are able to go right here. And I do know this can be a considerably controversial subject. However to begin broad, are you able to simply stroll us by way of a number of the high-level hyperlinks there that we see?

Sydney: Nicely, within the bra concern? Is that what you…? I may deal with the bra concern.

Katie: Yeah, let’s begin there.

Sydney: Yeah. Nicely, what’s occurring is, you realize, there’s no physiological want for bras. They’re purely for cultural aesthetic functions. And aesthetics or cultural, I imply, there’s no a method breasts ought to look, besides the best way nature made them. And the issue with bras is they modify breast form for this cultural trend design. And once you change the form of the breasts, it’s a must to apply strain to do this. So the bras are continually compressing the breasts. And that’s why they’re elastic and so they pushing in for the breast to alter their form. And what you consider as help is definitely lifting and pushing of the breast tissue right into a course that it wouldn’t be with out the bra. And everytime you do this, you’re making use of strain. And strain interferes with circulation. Our our bodies aren’t meant to be compressed from the surface. Something that compresses them, you’ll see marks in your pores and skin. The bra leaves these indentations and marks across the chest and the up shoulders and across the again. And people are indicators of constriction.

And the factor that will get constricted essentially the most and the best is the lymphatic system. And the lymphatic system is a thriller to lots of people. They haven’t actually heard of it or they don’t perceive it. Even in medication, it’s under-discussed, under-appreciated, and docs actually don’t know quite a bit about it both. The lymphatic system is actually your circulatory pathway on your immune system. And it consists of lymph nodes, that are factories for white blood cell manufacturing or, like, filters. And the fluid that goes to those lymph nodes is delivered by way of tiny microscopic vessels, very tiny. And so they haven’t any strain in them and so they originate within the tissue. So, within the breasts, you’ve got your cells within the breast that every one of our cells are principally in a fluid medium.

And this fluid medium permits trade of vitamins between the cell the bloodstream that these vitamins ooze out of the capillaries beneath strain, goes into these areas between the cells, the cells discharge their metabolic waste merchandise. This fluid is delivered now oxygen and vitamins. After which the fluid that the cells bathe in goes by way of these tiny vessels again by way of the lymph nodes to search for any…see if it’s picked up any virus particles, micro organism, or most cancers cells. And if it does, it mounts an immune response, which occurs when lymph nodes get infected. Finally, this fluid, it’s a method from the tissues to the lymph nodes after which again into the bloodstream.

Now, when you put on any constrictive clothes, the strain of the garment interferes with these tiny lymphatic capillaries. And it prevents the fluid from correctly draining from the breast. And what ladies will expertise is that…And that’s known as lymph stasis. Stasis means, like, stagnation, you realize. And lymph stasis has been identified to be related to most cancers. It causes most cancers. That’s been identified because the 1930s. And so you want to flow into. And the immune system can’t combat something if the tissue is constricted and is principally being lower off from the remainder of the physique. You already know, our our bodies can take an enormous quantity of insult as a result of we’ve got mechanisms for therapeutic, however once you intervene with circulation, that it doesn’t work. The important thing for all well being, in my view, is correct circulation and correctly functioning organs.

However your physique can’t clear up any trauma or most cancers cells or infections or any of that if its circulation is impaired and the tissue will in the end deteriorate. Oh, right here we’ve got gentle continual lymphedema of the breast attributable to the bra. And girls will expertise breast ache typically earlier than their menstrual interval comes as a result of, at the moment, their breasts are literally swollen with extra fluid due to estrogen, which is a hormone secreted throughout your cycle. And it peaks earlier than your interval and the breasts are swollen, really bigger than they usually can be. The remainder of your physique is just too. And girls are sporting the identical dimension bra so it’s much more constrictive at the moment, and so they really feel way more discomfort. There’s lots of breast strain and that causes the ache. The fluid will finally acquire into areas which creates a cyst. And many ladies have breast cysts, which they should get needle aspirated often, typically a number of occasions a 12 months, sticking a needle into the system, sucking out the fluid and so they don’t know what’s inflicting it. And typically docs say, “Put on a agency a bra when you’ve got this drawback,” when really the bra is inflicting the issue.

After which finally, you realize, the breasts are additionally not in a position to flesh out all the metabolic waste correctly. So it’s sitting in its personal waste. And all of the pollution that we take into our physique in our meals, you realize, petrochemical pollution like pesticides, and herbicides, and plastic residues, after which in our air, all of the air air pollution and water that we drink, any contaminants, lots of which may trigger most cancers, you realize, these course by way of your physique and must be flushed out of the tissues by the lymphatics. And in case your lymphatics are impaired due to constriction from a bra, these toxins will stay in your breast tissue longer and primarily being focused there. And so they may cause most cancers. And we’re conscious of, many individuals are more and more conscious of environmental toxins inflicting most cancers. And we stay in a reasonably poisonous world. And any harm together with radiation harm to the breasts from mammograms, or different x-rays to the chest, another environmental components that may affect your breast well being and trigger any tissue harm in any respect, that harm must be cleaned up by your immune system and it received’t be successfully cleaned up when you’re sporting a constrictive garment. It’s simply so simple as that.

And this is applicable to even sporting, like, an ACE bandage round a foul ankle or a knee or an elbow or a wrist. While you put a compression bandage or something tight in your physique, you’re squeezing the fluid out of that space, however you’re not letting any new fluid in as a result of the strain is just too excessive for the blood capillaries to even, you realize, ship fluid. It will depend on how tight it’s. But when it’s tight sufficient to decompress and, like, individuals do with ACE bandages and with bras too, you’re taking a look at impaired circulation and the tissue is rarely gonna get higher. I see individuals sporting ACE bandages for a 12 months for an harm and it’s prefer it’s by no means getting higher. And I say to them, you realize, “How is it purported to get higher when there’s no circulation? You’d wanna therapeutic massage the world. You’d wanna enhance circulation, eliminate tightness, eliminate tight muscle tissue as a result of they compress blood vessels. You wanna loosen your connective tissue. You don’t need it tightened and compressed by clothes.”

It’s an enormous oversight that medication has is it ignores the impact of tight clothes on circulation and due to this fact its impact on total well being. And though they understand it, they understand it, they’ll say after they take out your lymph nodes for breast most cancers to maintain it from spreading, which is, like, a horrible factor that simply took out your immune system for that, they take out lymph nodes and ladies will get lymphedema of the breast and the arm as a result of they each principally drain by way of the armpit lymph nodes and, you realize, as soon as they’re out, you simply can’t recuperate that perform. You already know, we have to be really massaging the breasts, giving them…daily you shouldn’t be sporting something tight, letting them transfer as a result of there’s a pure motion to the breasts once you stroll. That bounce that girls attempt to get rid of with a decent bra is definitely an vital pumping of the lymphatics.

The lymphatics have one-way valves to maintain the fluid transferring in the appropriate course. And any motion of the physique helps propel the lymph fluid by way of these vessels to the lymph nodes. So Should you immobilize the breasts, they’re not getting the good thing about motion, which is without doubt one of the large issues of train, motion, once more circulation. So, that’s the underside line about bras. And we did a research on this. And it’s been controversial as a result of though this has been identified, really, it’s been identified because the 1930s, there have been bra patents within the 1950s I discovered saying bras trigger most cancers, our bra is healthier. It’s been identified for fairly some time, however it’s a type of issues the place the tradition is so into it that the data is just too hectic for the tradition to handle. And it’s from an financial and psychological standpoint of girls, firstly of this within the 1990s once we first found all this, and we did an enormous research in the USA, which is in our e-book “Dressed to Kill,” it shocked the world about this as a result of they hadn’t thought concerning the bra.

That’s when the Wonderbra got here out. The identical 12 months our e-book got here out in 1995, the Wonderbra began. In order that they had been pushing pumped up cleavage. And we had been explaining that that very factor is the worst factor you would do to your physique. And sleeping in a bra, you realize, sporting…The longer and tighter you put on your bra, the upper your breast most cancers danger is. And women and men have about the identical danger of breast most cancers if the ladies are bra-free. However as quickly as they put on a bra, the longer and tighter they put on it, the upper their danger rises to over 100 occasions greater for a lady who sleeps in her bra 24/7 in comparison with a bra-free girl. So, that’s what we had been popping out with that message to warn ladies and encourage additional analysis.

And we discovered this from our personal research in the USA of 5,000 ladies, about half of them had breast most cancers, and we requested about their bra-wearing habits, and we found this hyperlink. After which we discovered it makes a lot sense. It explains a lot about breast most cancers. And it was, you realize, a tough factor for a bra-using tradition to take care of, particularly because it’s now going to must redefine and is redefining. We’ve been engaged on this for 25 years. It’s redefining most cancers analysis. They’re now beginning to ask about bras in breast most cancers analysis, like, you’d ask about household historical past. In fact, that’s not in the USA but. It’s in different nations. This has been all over the world. And in order that’s modified and there at the moment are patents primarily based on our analysis, saying that their bras are much less constrictive. And when you discover, there are lots of bralettes now. Underwire push-up bras aren’t the one factor you may get anymore. And their gross sales have plummeted.

Ladies are selecting to be bra-free, particularly millennial ladies. It’s like a 3rd to half of millennial ladies are bra-free. They need consolation. Ladies are asking for consolation now, and never simply look and conformity with some kind of painful, you realize, trend customary. They need consolation and so they’re giving up the bras realizing, “Why do we’ve got to put on…? If males don’t must put on a bra, why ought to I? Why ought to my breasts be a difficulty on a regular basis?” I imply, and ladies are asking these questions and being liberated from this inequality. It’s actually spectacular. So, we kind of began all that and there at the moment are dozens of research exhibiting bras trigger breast most cancers, however you received’t discover them simply as a result of that is being suppressed. And the American Most cancers Society and the Susan G. Komen Basis say that that is nonsense. There’s no proof, though the research are there. A research was funded by…the federal government was saying there isn’t a hyperlink quickly as we got here out with this in 1995. Nicely, earlier than I get into extra of this, I wanna take a pause to see when you’ve got any questions as a result of I’m occurring with a complete bunch of data.

Katie: Yeah, I’ve been over right here writing some bullet factors for the present notes however I positively…I’ve learn your work earlier than and I can perceive the hyperlink. Actually, I’d guess that you simply nonetheless run into lots of in all probability pushback as a result of it’s nonetheless a lot a part of the tradition. And I additionally understand there are going to be conditions that girls are gonna have to determine methods to navigate. As an example, I’ve breastfed six infants and there’s some logistics that associate with that, like leakage and issues like that, that make it kinda useful to have some form of not help however simply protection there. And also you talked about bralettes. So I’m questioning, is it the dose makes the poison? You stated that if ladies don’t put on bras in any respect, their breast most cancers danger is similar as males however can vastly lowering how tight it’s or how a lot it’s worn actually scale back that danger, even when there are nonetheless occasions once we do put on them?

As an example, I’ve had six infants so once I dash, dash, like, all-out dash, it’s painful if I don’t. And I do know that’s possibly simply partially as a result of I’ve been used to that for therefore lengthy. However is it a dose makes the poison factor? Can lowering our quantity of sporting them and the tightness go a good distance as properly?

Sydney: Oh, I’m certain it could. You already know, it’s not an all black or white factor. It’s a matter of diploma. And so, you simply have to bear in mind tightness and time worn. Should you don’t wanna put on…Should you wanna train…And by the best way, my spouse, you realize, she had a lump in her breast, which received us into this. Should you learn “Dressed to Kill,” you realize our story of how we received into this space. It went away when she stopped sporting her bra. However at first, and he or she’s large-breasted, she had some discomfort working or rebounding with no bra on. However after a number of months, the breasts really raise in tone. And we’ve been doing a world bra-free research now for a few years. Ever since “Dressed to Kill” got here, we’ve got a second version simply got here out with all the brand new analysis and all the outcomes, the reactions we’ve had, the resistance, you realize, unbelievable story. Now we have that up to date within the re-creation of “Dressed to Kill” in 2018.

And at the moment, we additionally began the Worldwide Bra-Free Research, which continues to be ongoing and ladies can be part of. And it’s a And it’s free. And what we do is we’ve got ladies simply eliminate their bras after which we ask them what their expertise is. And it’s wonderful what we discovered. Not solely do cysts and ache go away, together with menstrual discomfort, once you eliminate the bra, however the breasts really do raise in tone. And that’s as a result of once you’re sporting the bra, not solely are they heavy from lymphedema, from the fluid, but in addition the ligaments that naturally help the breast inside, the Cooper’s ligaments, they atrophy and weaken when you’ve got a synthetic help. It’s like placing your arm in a sling. Your ligaments had been weakened in the event that they’re not used. So, when ladies put on a bra from puberty, I imply, they by no means give these ligaments an opportunity to develop. So, apparently, what we think about regular breasts in bra-wearing cultures are literally broken breasts. It’s like what we consider as regular ft are actually ft outlined by sneakers, the place your toes are curled and there’s all kinds of points that occur due to sneakers, you realize, the identical factor with breasts, however we don’t understand that.

We don’t speak about it due to the taboo nature of coping with breasts. You already know, you’ll be able to speak about ft with out being embarrassed however once you begin speaking about breasts, the tradition will get actually bizarre. So, the concept although is to attenuate the period of time you’re in a bra and ensure it’s not constrictive, no crimson marks, put on it much less as…Our research discovered over 12 hours a day of sporting actually accelerated your danger. So that you wanna put on it as little as potential, definitely lower than 12 hours, by no means to sleep. Make certain it leaves no marks in your pores and skin as a result of that’s an indication of constriction. And if that’s the case, then that’s tremendous. You in all probability need pure fibers as a result of the fibers within the bra itself are poisonous. Some elastic breaks down into…it’s a polymer and the monomer items of this polymer are carcinogenic.

And lots of clothes, you could know…possibly you probably did a present on this, however there’s lots of poisonous chemical compounds in clothes, and formaldehyde to all kinds of issues that they use, not solely after they increase the…yeah, like if it’s cotton, how they develop it, or if it’s artificial, clearly, there’s chemical compounds concerned in all of this stuff, in pesticides, but in addition after they retailer materials, they deal with them for numerous issues, you realize, fireplace retardants, all kinds of chemical compounds. It’s best to by no means put on something with out washing it a few occasions, you realize, if it’s new. And these chemical compounds in bras, together with the detergents and the material softeners that you simply wash them in, and the perfumes and the sweat will keep on this garment that’s gonna be intimately involved together with your pores and skin, and you’ll soak up these chemical compounds and toxins proper into you. So the bra not solely prevents the flushing out of the breast and of different toxins you absorb however can present a number of the toxins itself.

So, with that every one in thoughts, you may get used to being bra-free. And like I used to be gonna say with my spouse, she will now rebound with none discomfort and with none bra. And he or she didn’t get used to that. There have been research accomplished on athletic ladies of their 20s who stopped sporting bras for the research, and so they discovered they carried out higher and most popular being bra-free. So the entire concept that you simply want a bra for train is fallacious. There is no such thing as a flaw to human anatomy that requires any garment to appropriate. That’s salesmanship of the garment business. We had been made tremendous and we carry on interfering with that with these clothes. So, you don’t want a sports activities bra like a person doesn’t actually need a jockstrap except possibly, you realize, he has actually pendulous testicles or a lady has actually giant breasts and he or she’s attempting to do one thing that can be uncomfortable, like, due to this. So she ought to to begin with marvel ought to I be doing this? You already know, is that this body-friendly for me?

I imply, if I’m an enormous particular person, if I used to be overweight, I shouldn’t be jogging. It’s gonna spoil my knees and my ankles. I imply, you gotta think about the actions you’re doing. When you have giant breasts, you won’t wanna go jogging or do actually very disturbing workouts to your breasts. However when you do, you’ll be able to put on a, you realize, sports activities bra whilst you’re doing it however take it off proper afterwards. Sports activities bras aren’t for on a regular basis put on. They’re very constrictive and really compressive. However when you occur to want breast management, you are able to do it for that second. You already know, it’s not like the top of the world if that occurs, however understand the good thing about train is circulation enchancment. Your lymphatics really flow into over 20 occasions extra, 20-fold elevated circulation throughout train. So, when you’ve got your breasts transferring, like, let’s say you had been swimming, the place there you don’t must…you realize, you really swimming bare can be ideally suited. You’ll be able to go bicycling. You possibly can do yoga. You possibly can stroll, which provides a pure motion. You need your breasts to maneuver. You don’t wanna essentially to be, you realize, onerous motion, like, except they’re comfy with it. And, once more, when you’ve been bra-free all of your life, you’d be comfy with it. Should you’ve been sporting a bra all of your life, then, in fact, you’re conditioned to sporting your bra. You’re taking off the arm sling and attempt to do regular issues and your shoulder received’t have the ability to take care of it till it will get robust once more.

So, we found on this research, the breasts raise, the ache goes away, and so they additionally breathe simpler. Each girl has stated…that is an attention-grabbing aspect impact of sporting a bra. When you’ve got a band round your chest, in addition to its impact in your breasts, it has an impact in your sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. And there have been research which have regarded precisely at this. And so they discovered it will increase your…Carrying a bra, in comparison with none, will increase your core physique temperature, reduces melatonin secretion, slows down digestion so it could create constipation, and it even alters your menstrual cycle. And girls…and it reduces respiration. You don’t take as deep a breath, and their reflexes concerned. I imply, some individuals attempt to determine physiology on this however it’s clear. And you’ll find this out for your self. You’ll be able to cease sporting a bra and also you’ll immediately understand, “I may breathe simpler with no band round my chest.”

And the physique appears to understand it. It’s prefer it’s stressed having a band as a result of on a unconscious stage, our our bodies, you realize, wanna care for themselves. And so they have protection mechanisms, even when we consciously attempt to subvert these. And one of many protection mechanisms is once you’re uncomfortable, like, when you’re sitting in a fallacious place, your circulation will get impaired a little bit bit, it makes you wanna transfer. The discomfort tells you to maneuver. However when you can’t transfer, you finally study to only ignore it and switch that off. So with the bra, there’s an implicit discomfort of getting a band round your chest, pushing in your breasts. And that discomfort impacts you on a unconscious stage the place even your nervous system is reacting to…As a result of in the long term, it could actually harm you. It’s hurting you.

So your physique is attempting to defend you and let you know to do one thing about it however the tradition and the messages we’ve realized get in the best way of that and ladies don’t take heed to the discomfort, which was one of many issues we research in our bra and breast most cancers research that we’ve got in our e-book, “Dressed to Kill.” One of many issues we requested about attitudes, behaviors, and ladies who’ve a historical past of breast most cancers, they didn’t thoughts the very fact they’d extra prone to have marks on their pores and skin and extra prone to ignore it. That’s the factor. Should you ignore the messages your physique is providing you with, the discomforts, ladies, the very first thing they do after they get house, if their bra wearers, one of many first issues many ladies do is take off their bra after they get house. And, you realize, they put on it as a result of they assume they should look that approach in public as a result of that reveals you ways brainwashed all people is. However after they’re house, it’s not comfy. In order that they take it off. That’s their physique telling them, “This isn’t good for you.”

However they must do it daily. After which they get hooked on it, conditioned to it, and so they determine with their picture sporting the bra and the garments require a bra. And the entire tradition is so into it that they’ve had issues…However 25 years later now, since we got here out with the e-book and began this complete journey of attempting to teach the world about this, now, there are legal guidelines that stop discrimination towards ladies within the office forcing them to put on bras. Ladies would not have to put on bras at work. Something that males don’t must do, ladies don’t must do. Until it’s explicitly a part of the job you want that. But when it’s not, you’ll be able to’t drive ladies to put on excessive heels to sexualize their our bodies at work. You already know, we’re used to the office being an eye fixed sweet place for guys to have a look at ladies. And possibly these days is the reverse too.

It’s just like the office is implicitly sexualized for ladies to go to work the best way they do with excessive heels, and cleavage, and fragrance, and cosmetics. The office is a spot for…I imply, possibly that’s a part of the social lubricant of working collectively however it’s implicitly sexual. And I feel right now’s world, we’re difficult that, and the truth that it’s making ladies uncomfortable, unhealthy, and so they shouldn’t must be objectified and sexualized at work. And so they can say no and they’re saying no, even highschool ladies are saying no to bras, and so they’re beginning to get up to the truth that ladies have the appropriate to be comfy and that bras aren’t comfy. There’s nothing comfy…they’re not meant to be comfy. They’re meant to be, you realize, breast form changers.

Katie: So many attention-grabbing factors that you simply simply introduced up. And positively, I can perceive. There’s so many memes on-line, I do know ladies have seen these of the sensation of taking off your bra once you get house after a protracted day. And definitely, I feel lots of ladies can relate to that. And I’ve heard even individuals say that that’s one of many advantages of this previous 12 months is, like, no one’s needed to put on a bra for a 12 months, proper, and understand simply all the opposite layers of that that you simply simply defined. And also you additionally in contrast it to sneakers and ft. And I’m glad you introduced that up as a result of that is one thing I’ve talked about earlier than on this podcast. I’ve written fairly a bit about in our household, particularly this previous 12 months, however even earlier than then, I’d say I put on sneakers possibly 1% of the time, possibly, and that may be a stretch. And I don’t even put on sneakers in shops at occasions. I get some unusual seems. My youngsters have…they put on sneakers so hardly ever that they…There have been occasions the place they wanted to really put on them on an airplane or one thing and we didn’t have sneakers that match them as a result of they hadn’t received sneakers in months.

So I can perceive the foot connection. And once you clarify these in correlation, it is smart to me. I’ve a good friend who by no means wears sneakers both, and when individuals ask him about it, he makes use of the analogy like think about sporting two gloves in your hand on a regular basis, like a skinny one, like a sock, and a thicker one, the way you wouldn’t have the ability to really feel something and the way indifferent out of your palms you’ll really feel, and the way smelly they’d get. However but we expect with sneakers, it’s regular. And such as you simply defined, there’s form of that very same reference to all of those tight restrictive clothes, not simply bras as a result of definitely, our tradition does appear to love lots of tight-fitting clothes.

Earlier than we transfer on as a result of there’s another areas of this, I feel which are actually vital to the touch on, I wanna delve into one which’s gonna positively be controversial. And that’s, so many ladies in right now’s tradition, I do know the numbers are declining, however lots of ladies have breast implants. And I ponder about…As a result of then we’re speaking about incisions. We’re speaking about one thing that would appear like additionally places strain. Are there implications? Have you ever regarded on the implications particularly of that?

Sydney: Sure. You’re completely proper. To begin with, incisions, there’s a current research that’s confirmed how lymphatic impairment will increase most cancers incidents. They discovered even…This was a dermatology research. And the breasts, in fact, are an adjunct pores and skin organ, so that they’re a part of the pores and skin. So, the pores and skin, what they discovered is any incision interferes with lymphatics, like, nearly perpetually. It by no means will get again to what it was in circulation. And it will increase the most cancers incidence within the tissue that’s distal to that. So it creates an immune-compromised space by interfering with lymphatics. So, the lymphatics must go from distal of your physique in the direction of your coronary heart. And when you’ve got any cuts between that pathway, it interferes with that drainage. So, the world, you realize, that’s additional away out of your coronary heart from that lower is immune-compromised in comparison with the remainder of your physique. And so, yeah, we’re additionally…I kind of misplaced observe of the place we’re occurring there.

Katie: I simply needed to the touch on the concept of implants and…

Sydney: Oh, the implants, implants. Sure, thanks. Okay. Implants, so that they must make an incision to place them in. The opposite factor is, there’s gonna be strain from inside urgent on the lymphatics. So, when you’ve got an implant and also you put on a bra, you’re making, like, a sandwich out of your breast tissue with an implant pushing from the within and the bra pushing from the surface. And the result’s going to be. you realize, positively restricted lymphatic movement. Plus the implant is…I imply, it’s going to be…properly, you’ll be able to think about what the factor inside your physique goes to do. It’s gonna displace what ought to have been there. And to do this, it’s gonna be giving strain to issues.

So there may very well be quite a bit have uncomfortable side effects from implants. They’re a really unhealthy concept. And it’s an indication that medication doesn’t actually care about you that a lot that they promote all of those beauty surgical procedures that aren’t good for individuals. However it makes some huge cash for them and it perpetuates the insecurities that girls have. However to reply your query instantly, when you’ve got implants, you in all probability shouldn’t put on a bra. And also you don’t essentially wanna get them eliminated immediately as a result of there is perhaps uncomfortable side effects of that. Should you don’t have implants, assume twice earlier than you get them and ask your self why. However there’s no approach they’re gonna be wholesome on your breasts and so they definitely will exacerbate any circulation drawback.

Katie: Gotcha. Okay. I positively wanna go into methods we are able to enhance lymphatic perform, however I really feel like that’s gonna be an excellent place to wrap up. I even have notes earlier than we get to that time to speak to you about issues just like the implications for a few of these issues with thyroid well being. And particularly, I’ve a word concerning the hyperlink between your voice and your thyroid. And an honest quantity of listeners have struggled with some type of thyroid dysfunction. So, speak to us about what you’ve realized associated to the thyroid.

Sydney: Nicely, that’s an attention-grabbing one. That’s one other culture-caused illness with a twist. I imply, I not solely determine the cultural trigger, however I even have sufficient understanding of drugs and I’m freed from the bias of taking a look at issues from a pharmaceutical standpoint. That’s what medication does, okay? While you go to medical faculty, they educate you methods to determine situations by way of drug prescriptions. I imply, it’s all about medicine. That’s why they’re docs of drugs. And versus docs of chiropractic, or osteopathy, or herbalism, or Chinese language medication, they work with medicine. And I went to a medical faculty, you realize, that taught that. And the best way they consider the thyroid is that it’s solely managed by pituitary hormone, thyroid-stimulating hormone. And there’s a suggestions loop. And it’s a really well-known one which’s taught in biochemistry. It’s like the primary one they ever found of a suggestions loop in order that your mind tells your thyroid to be stimulated to make extra thyroxine. The thyroxin enters your bloodstream, goes again to the mind, after which it shuts down that or inhibits the stimulation. So it’s received a suggestions, a destructive suggestions loop. And that’s all they give thought to with the thyroid.

However what I’ve found is there are quite simple mechanical solutions to issues that medication ignores, probably as a result of they’re really easy to know, however in all probability as a result of there’s no medicine concerned. And the one with the bra that we simply talked about is an easy mechanical concern of compressive clothes and the way they have an effect on circulation. This shouldn’t actually be a lot thriller to that after you actually give it some thought in these clear phrases. However the different factor with the thyroid that made me marvel, when you realize anatomy, the thyroid is correct subsequent to your voice field, your larynx. I imply, it’s linked to it. And the thyroid inside is definitely, kind of, a gel-like materials that has thyroxin. And when you squeeze the thyroid, you really could make a give out thyroxine. Therapeutic massage therapists know they must watch out massaging individuals’s throats, particularly if they’ve hyperthyroidism as a result of you’ll be able to oversecrete thyroxin that approach. So the thyroid is definitely delicate to the touch and to stimulation that approach by mechanical contact. Why would you place that on a voice field?

I imply, in case you are God, or biology, or no matter, making the human physique in evolution, why would you’re taking a thyroid…? And in lots of animals, that is the case. It’s on their voice packing containers, a vibrating construction. Why would you place an organ that vibrates and releases hormone on a vibrating construction except that was a part of its mechanism for hormone launch? Nicely, now I’ve written about that, and I really found folks that received transient or short-term hyperthyroidism, an excessive amount of thyroxine, after going by way of bouts once you ask them what they’ve been doing of their lives, which docs by no means do, however anthropologists do. They went by way of bouts of yelling. And that over-vibrated their thyroid. It was an uncommon yelling. Like, you realize, they went by way of some…and that additional overstimulation of the thyroid by yelling induced hyperthyroidism. And it in all probability would have gotten higher in the event that they stopped yelling and let all of it heal, you realize, and never overstimulate it, and also you recuperate.

However once you go to the physician for thyroid illness, they’ll offer you radioactive iodine to evaluate the exercise of the thyroid. And, in fact, radioactivity is just not an excellent factor. And that very same radioactive iodine, they’ll simply give in additional dose in the event that they wanna ablate or principally burn your thyroid off. After which they put you on thyroxin, you realize, a tablet. And also you’ll must take up the remainder of your life. I’ve written about that in a e-book I wrote known as “Physician is Out.” And it was speaking about numerous scams of getting individuals on lifetime treatment. And that is certainly one of them as a result of they’re really assessing your thyroid utilizing radioactive iodine that burns thyroid tissue. So, by the point they end testing it, you realize, it’s in all probability broken already by the take a look at and so they’d reasonably simply ablate the remainder of it, and so they simply management how a lot thyroxine you’re getting with tablets, and attempt to see if, you realize…And that’s, in fact, not ideally suited. It’s good for them within the medical business and pharmaceutical, however it’s not good for the affected person.

So, the opposite factor we discovered is when you don’t stimulate your voice sufficient, you’ll get hypothyroidism. And, for instance, I did radio reveals on this speaking about this concern. And I received contacted by a nun who had to enter a time in her research and a meditation the place she was silent for a very long time. After which she comes up, they develop hypothyroidism. Additionally, deaf mutes. I regarded this up immediately once I was enthusiastic about this idea. Deaf mutes, you realize, they’re born that approach the place they will’t converse, they will’t hear. By the point they’re adolescents, they’re on thyroid treatment. So, they don’t speak. So when you take a look at individuals who don’t speak, they’ve thyroid issues. Should you take a look at individuals who yell, they get thyroid issues. And why would lots of ladies get this in tradition? I imply, properly, to begin with, our tradition proper now’s doing much less speaking and extra speaking over the web with, you realize, texts and emails. And so it’s rather less verbalization. We don’t sing like we used to.

Individuals years in the past within the 20th century, there was much more singing, group singing. Should you take a look at previous films from the ’30s and ’40s, I imply, individuals had no drawback singing. And we don’t vocalize like that anymore. I feel we’re way more into getting entertained than collaborating in it. And but, you realize…After which when you’re a single mother otherwise you’re a lady who will get, you realize, by the point you’re 50, many ladies are divorced, and with out kids, and alone, and as you become old, when you’re alone, you’re not speaking, your thyroid goes to not get stimulated. So I feel what occur…And there have been current research, by the best way, that discovered once you take thyroid cells and stimulate them with sound, they secrete thyroxin. And one other research that has confirmed that thyroxin is launched upon vibration from the thyroid, from the larynx, the voice field.

So, that is appropriate. It’s gonna change the best way all people talks concerning the thyroid as a result of it’s one other a part of the stimulation of the thyroid that medication doesn’t even think about in any respect. And somebody did inform me that Ayurvedic medication knew concerning the thyroid and voice and did voice workouts for the thyroid however that’s like thousand of years previous. So, this has been identified and it’s actually apparent when you consider it the best way I introduced it, you placing an organ on, properly, why isn’t it in our stomach or protected against any vibration because it’s so delicate to it? Should you work in factories the place there’s large banging sounds from equipment, you’ll be able to really get thyroid harm, and there’s research on that. So individuals who work in loud occupational settings get thyroid harm from the precise vibration.

So, when you’ve got thyroid illness, not illness, however when you’ve got an issue that’s been associated to your thyroid, I’d counsel both singing for low thyroid, learn out loud, speak, use your voice. I feel as we develop up, as we develop, the mind and your vocalizations kind of attain…they work collectively and also you get, like, what’s your regular quantity of speaking. You already know, some persons are speaking of all their lives and a few persons are quiet all their lives. And I feel your mind will get set at a certain quantity of thyroid-stimulating hormone relative to the quantity of vocalization you do. And as your life modifications and also you vocalize roughly, your TSH, thyroid-stimulating hormone secretion goes to regulate however it has a window of how a lot you’ll be able to alter earlier than you begin experiencing thyroid secretion points. So, what you wanna do is when you don’t speak sufficient and also you’re low thyroid, vocalize. Get your thyroid going. However you’ll be able to even therapeutic massage your throat, you realize.

And when you’ve got hyperthyroidism, it is best to ask your self when you’ve been yelling recently, and it may very well be individuals in unhealthy relationships immediately, and so they’re yelling at one another, or it may very well be you went to a soccer sport and also you overdid it, and also you yelled an excessive amount of. That received’t occur in the course of the pandemic, I suppose, however that would have occurred previously. So it’s a must to ask your self what sort of vocalizations you might have had? And did you overstimulate your thyroid? After which simply shut up for some time. Give your self, you realize, a month or two of quiet. Discuss much less. Discuss softer.

And when you’re hypothyroid, speak extra, speak louder. They are going to have an effect on your thyroid and then you definitely’ll see how you’re feeling. And I’ve had individuals do this and so they say they really feel quite a bit higher. Loads of ladies, it appears,…I bumped into lots of people who stated they used to sing like at church or a choir after which they received some depressive factor. Normally, after a depressive occasion of their lives, individuals stopped singing. They stopped speaking. It takes lots of steam out of them. And that’s reflecting of their vocalizations. And that impacts their thyroid, which then will get their vitality decrease as a result of they get hypothyroid. And it turns into a spiral.

And it in all probability spirals the opposite approach, too. Should you’re aggravated and also you’re yelling on a regular basis…like this one man, this precisely occurred. On the time I used to be residing in Hawaii, this man moved to my neighborhood who he used to stay in California, and he was a person in place of energy. And he lived alongside a highway that we had been used to the visitors on the highway. However he didn’t just like the visitors going too quick on this highway as a result of individuals had been rushing by. So he was on the market yelling on the visitors, “You decelerate. Decelerate.” And he did this for, like, months. After which I didn’t see him for some time. And I noticed him once more and I stated, “How have you ever been?” And he stated he had a thyroid drawback. He went to the physician, the physician, you realize, stated he had hyperthyroidism. They ablated his thyroid with iodine and now he’s on thyroid tablets the remainder of his life.

I stated, “I’ve been engaged on this idea about its with vocalizations.” And as I’m telling him this idea, a automotive comes by, and he reflexively screams at it to decelerate. And he seems at me, it’s like the sunshine went on. And he stated, “I want you’ll have advised me this earlier than.” And he noticed precisely what he was doing to himself. And it was so clear an instance of individuals creating hyperthyroidism by overstimulation of their voicebox. So, anyway, that’s the story of the thyroid. And, once more, it’s a mechanical circulation concern. I’ll let you know one other concern, one other cultural-genic drawback. Would you like me to?

Katie: Yeah, completely. And after you do, I’ve some experimental expertise on the thyroid half, however yeah, hold going.

Sydney: Nicely, when you say your thyroid one earlier than I…As a result of I’m gonna change gears fully.

Katie: Okay. As you had been saying that, it was like a lightbulb second for me as a result of I had…I’ve talked about on the podcast earlier than, Episode 309, however I had a reasonably extreme trauma in highschool. And ever since then, like I had form of, like, emotionally shut down fairly a bit. And other people would say, like, “Oh, you’re so soft-spoken. You’re so quiet.” And I had began to undergo from thyroid issues a number of years after that. And a part of my trauma restoration in the previous few years, I used lots of totally different modalities, however at one level did, like, primarily rage remedy, the place they received me to yell as a result of I had not raised my voice a single time since that occurred. After which additionally to problem myself, it was the scariest factor I may consider, I began taking voice classes across the similar time. And my Hashimoto’s is totally gone. Not simply…I imply, it’s in remission, however I don’t take treatment anymore. In order that was actually fascinating that these issues lined up.

Sydney: Nicely, that’s superior. I’m so glad you advised me that. That absolutely confirms what I’m saying. However, you realize, that is one other a type of issues. With thyroid treatment, are you aware how many individuals are on thyroid treatment? I imply, it is a large moneymaker, an enormous moneymaker. You already know, you run into so many issues in medication, the place they get any widespread illness that we’re all affected by, that they’ve a drugs routine for, that we’re all comfy with. And persons are nonetheless affected by it. It’s like a money cow for the medical business. And so they’re by no means excited by attempting to know the reason for this stuff or assist individuals give you non-drug options to determine it out.

Right here’s the opposite one I used to be gonna let you know. And I wrote a e-book about this. And that is in all probability our largest discovery subsequent to “Dressed to Kill,” and thyroid. It’s about the best way you sleep. Persons are sleeping too flat. And it’s inflicting their brains to get an excessive amount of strain as a result of once you’re mendacity down, gravity doesn’t help. Nicely, let me put it this manner. While you’re standing up and your head is above your coronary heart, the center has to pump towards gravity to get to your mind. And because it goes by way of your mind with, you realize, the cerebral spinal fluid varieties, after which it collects, after which it comes again down by way of your veins again to your coronary heart and gravity helps pull that down. So it resists the pumping to the mind and pulls down the blood assists the drainage from the mind.

While you lie down, the connection between your coronary heart and your mind by way of gravity is totally different. Now, they’re on the identical airplane. So there’s no gravity gradient. That signifies that when the center is pumping into your head, there’s no resistance from gravity. So it makes the blood vessels…It makes your face crimson, your complete head is definitely getting congested. So, your coronary heart, really there’s in your carotid arteries, there’s strain receptors, that decrease your coronary heart charge and pumping drive as a way to stop you from giving your self a stroke by blowing a blood vessel in your mind, you realize, like a balloon popping. You don’t need an excessive amount of strain in your mind. You need circulation. You don’t need strain.

So once you lie down, you get strain within the head and the center tries to decelerate. Now, when you stand up actual fast typically, you may get dizzy. That’s known as orthostatic hypotension. It’s regular, on this case, as a result of once you received up, now immediately, your head is above your coronary heart, gravity prevents…Your coronary heart is pumping softer since you had been mendacity down for some time. And it’s not able to pump onerous to get the blood as much as your head. It’s used to the top being on the identical stage. So that you stand up in the midst of the evening to go pee, and also you get off the bed too rapidly, and you are feeling a little bit lightheaded, that’s as a result of your coronary heart wasn’t prepared so that you can stand up that quick. And it’s known as orthostatic hypotension, which suggests low strain attributable to posture place and standing up.

So, anyway, that made me really getting orthostatic hypotension one evening was when it made me take into consideration this. And I began to consider the impact of gravity on mind circulation and sleep place. And no one was taking a look at this besides area medication I found as a result of there’s no gravity in area. In order that they’ve been wanting on the impact of zero gravity on the mind circulation as a result of they discover that astronauts have fluid shifts to the top as a result of it’s not popping out. It’s not draining that properly. It’s pumped up there. Like, once you’re mendacity flat, no drawback getting the blood to the top, it’s the issue is getting it from the top again all the way down to the center. There’s no gravity to drag it down. So the one approach for the blood to empty from the top to the center once you’re mendacity flat is for it to push from the center as much as the top by way of your mind and push all that fluid again down. Now, once you rise up, that can simply movement again down.

In actual fact, docs can take a look at how a lot coronary heart…They take a look at your coronary heart’s capability and coronary heart failure by having you lie on a flat desk after which they increase the top of the desk. And as quickly because it reaches an angle the place your blood vessels contract, like your blood vessels…your veins can be protruding once you’re mendacity flat. You’ll be able to have anyone take a look at it for you, you’ll see the veins on the aspect of your neck protruding as a result of the blood is pulling between your head and your coronary heart. It’s not successfully getting again into your coronary heart, it’s very sluggish. So the strain builds in your veins, it’s like your congesting your blood in your head and veins. And by the best way, that’s why once you get up within the morning, you’ll have saggy eyes, sinus congestion, a groggy head, your ears, even your center and interior ear might be congested, particularly when you’re leaning in your head…leaning in your ears aspect sleeping.

However you’re in a down place getting congested and compressed all evening. And there’s a complete bunch of illnesses which have excessive mind strain as a part of these illnesses. However medication hasn’t figured this out, okay? They haven’t figured the connection between, besides in some illnesses, like, for instance, sleep apnea. You’ll be able to deal with sleep apnea by head of mattress elevation. And by the best way, NASA discovered that 30-degree head of that elevation is perfect for each mind and coronary heart circulation. I had dialog with a NASA physiology man who was learning this stuff. And so they know all about this, however the remainder of medication doesn’t know this. So, individuals…Now, when you’ve got a hiatal hernia or you’ve got GERD or acid reflux disease, they’ll let you know to sleep on a wedge or elevate your mattress so you’ve got an inclined airplane as a result of they’re utilizing gravity. They’ll use it there, however they received’t consider it preventatively like all people ought to be sleeping elevated, which is actually the reality.

And so, what we discovered is migraines are attributable to this mechanism. No one understood migraines. They nonetheless don’t know what’s inflicting migraines. We all know what’s inflicting migraines. At the least in 70% of the instances we discovered from our migraine research, we’re in a position to eliminate their migraines. These had been continual migraineurs and for, like, all their lives. And once we had them raised the mattress, the top of their mattress, they stopped having migraines, like, actually quick. And that’s as a result of we found out what a migraine actually is. A migraine is a mind flush. What occurs is, in case your mind is down all evening and you’ve got them within the morning, I imply, these are, like…Something that’s unhealthy, it is a tip. Something that you’ve worse within the morning is from what you probably did in a single day. And if individuals get up with a headache or they get migraines which are generally known as morning complications, it’s as a result of what they’ve been doing all evening. And at evening, they’re flat, mendacity too flat. And their mind is getting pressurized and never circulating properly due to the dearth of gravity.

So, because the mind cells, you realize, metabolize, they’re utilizing up their oxygen, they’re utilizing up their sugar and the mind wants that. So by the morning, the one approach so that you can get…You already know in case your mind is struggling, it has to guard itself. How else is the mind gonna get the recent oxygen, and recent sugar, and vitamins however by way of the bloodstream? So it opens up blood vessels in your neck and also you get the blood vessels within the mind open. And there’s this strain of pushing new blood by way of and that’s what a migraine is. And if we had individuals increase the heads of their mattress, they didn’t want that. Their brains had sufficient circulation, they didn’t want the migraine. So primarily, a migraine is a protection mechanism to guard the mind from dropping an excessive amount of oxygen and sugar. And so they discovered that individuals who have migraines really are protected towards different illnesses that we expect are associated to the identical factor, together with strokes.

Should you’re down low, your head’s low and you’ve got lots of strain in your head, you would get a stroke as a result of, in reality, most strokes occur in the midst of the evening. Most individuals die whereas they’re in mattress sleeping as a result of their mind will get overdone. And the respiratory middle in your mind that controls respiration, which is between your ears and the brainstem, that will get tousled too once you’re flat. And that’s why it causes sleep apnea and sudden toddler dying syndrome. So when you increase the mattress, they know that helps with sleep apnea. With SIDS, they are saying put the child on its again so its head isn’t turned to the aspect as a result of that lowers mind circulation. It really simply turning your head to the aspect. like taking a look at your shoulder, compresses the veins taking place and will increase your mind strain.

And likewise, when you crane your neck with two pillows so your head is just too excessive, like, craned up, that urgent of your chin down in the direction of your chest additionally compresses your veins draining your mind and also you’ll enhance your mind strain. So that you don’t wanna simply have two pillows. In actual fact, pillows…I’m sleeping not with pillows. I’m utilizing a towel that I fold beneath my neck and head making it very low uncomfortable, however I’m on an inclined airplane. And it is best to sleep, in my view from what I’ve been learning on this, sleep in your again as a result of sleeping creates compression accidents. I imply, that’s what we’re speaking about right here, mechanical forces. You lean your physique. What are you gonna lean your physique on? Should you lean it in your shoulder, anticipate to have shoulder issues as you become old and circulatory issues since you’re leaning in your arm. You already know, you get up together with your arm numb and useless, you realize, in the midst of the evening, that’s not an excellent factor. And it’s from compression. And you retain on doing that, you’ll pay for it over time.

And when you lean on the aspect and also you’re a aspect sleeper, you’re leaning your ear and that aspect of your face towards the pillow, I may really take a look at an individual and inform if dominantly proper or left aspect sleeper, or again sleeper, or abdomen sleeper, which is the worst, due to the best way they flip their head. Individuals often have a behavior of sleeping a method predominantly. And you may really see their face over time from compression. Their faces change into asymmetrical and warp. So the nostril will begin bending away from the pillow since you’re pushing it that approach. Your cheek on that aspect and your eye will begin…they’ll, like, soften with time. You take a look at older individuals, you’ll be able to actually see on their faces how they sleep as a result of they’re leaning on it. And the ear that’s down is gonna be a worse ear. The attention that’s down is gonna get astigmatism since you’re gonna change the form of it from leaning on it. And will probably be the worst aspect. So individuals who aspect sleep have these issues.

Youngsters who aspect sleep, they’re gonna get ear infections within the ear you’re placing them down on. Should you’re in your again, there’s nothing unhealthy to compress. It’s simply flat. It’s a flat, vast floor with no circulatory issues by mendacity on it. However there’s on all the pieces else. and you’ll broaden your lungs once you’re in your again. Should you’re in your stomach, you’ll be able to’t even breathe deeply. And your head’s to the aspect, growing mind strain and your one nostril is closed. You’ll be able to’t ventilate. So, it’s all very logical. When you begin taking a look at these behaviors, you’ll be able to see how our tradition teaches us to do issues, has beds a sure approach. I feel the cultural customary of sleep is in your aspect in a fetal place. While you take a look at an image of an individual sleeping, they’re often flat with a pillow on their sides in a curled-up place. Like, that’s how we expect, aspect sleeping. Even after they promote adjustable beds, they’ll present individuals sleeping flat. And it shouldn’t be that approach.

You actually ought to have your mattress elevated from the highest or elevate the entire mattress. Put blocks beneath the top of your mattress, and have an incline airplane. Should you put, like, one cinder block’s top price, 6 to eight inches, that’ll offer you an inclined airplane sufficient to assist with circulation. And you’ll really feel totally different the subsequent day. And I’m not exaggerating. Should you did this tonight, you’ll really feel totally different the subsequent day. You’ll get up with a clearer thoughts as a result of your mind is circulated. You should have much less sinus congestion. Some individuals say they thought they had been allergic to one thing and so they came upon it was their sleeping that made them stuffy from that. You already know, it was sleeping, getting congested in your sinuses, out of your head being down.

You already know, you’ll additionally sleep much less since you received’t be so groggy and also you’ll have the ability to stand up instantly, and never really feel like I gotta lie in mattress and attempt to recuperate like I’ve been strangled all evening. You already know, like, why are individuals so exhausted after they stand up? You’d assume they’d be refreshed from what they’re doing to themselves. So anyway, that’s an enormous one. And it pertains to migraines. We expect Alzheimer’s is the top illness of this as a result of when you take a look at an Alzheimer’s mind, the ventricles contained in the mind, that are these large cavities crammed with cerebral spinal fluid, are extraordinarily expanded. They’ve additional strain inside their ventricles. And there have really been Alzheimer’s remedies attempting to scale back that strain with surgical procedure attempting to shunt the fluid from the mind into the stomach and possibly attempting to provide some anti-inflammatory medicine, one thing to take care of this additional strain. They don’t ask what’s inflicting it. And it’s attributable to sleeping too flat as a result of individuals spend a 3rd of their lives that approach. So, in fact, it’s going to have an effect on your mind. We expect that’s the top illness.

Stroke, for certain, glaucoma, for certain, and so they already use head elevation to deal with glaucoma, though they received’t let you know as a result of that’s one other nice money cow for them. However glaucoma is treatable by elevating the top of your mattress and that lowers your eye strain. Impotence is even an issue right here as a result of one of many causes you’ve got impotence for males is that, and possibly for ladies too, I don’t know, when you’ve got an orgasm and also you get your strain up fairly excessive, it can provide you a stroke when you’ve got the mind…some issues probably having a stroke, like weakened blood vessels. So the physique doesn’t allow you to get that excited and that top strain to save lots of your mind. And when you increase the top of your mattress, you’re not gonna get into that place as a lot. And it’d permit…I imply, I don’t know, it’s looking forward to some impotence however the impotence has been related to elevated mind strain too.

Consideration deficit dysfunction. We’ve identified kids who had that drawback sleeping 12 hours a day flat. You get them elevated and their complete habits modifications, they sleep much less. Their complete life modifications. It’s wonderful that’s such a easy factor can have such profound influences. However you perceive how you’re feeling once you’re sleepy and groggy and the way that impacts your complete physique. These little issues like the way you’re sleeping actually does have a big impact on a lot of your physique as a result of your mind controls all the pieces. And in case your mind is congested, relying on what a part of your mind is congested, if it’s your respiratory middle or another half, your eyes, something, relying on the way you’re leaning in your head and your specific circulation inside your head, you’ll have totally different manifestations of this congestion inside your mind. And it may result in lots of totally different issues.

So, the recommendation then for right now for what we’ve talked about can be, don’t put on tight clothes. sleep together with your head elevated, your torso elevated so that you’ve correct circulation in each instances, and attempt to use your voice when you’re low thyroid and attempt to use it much less when you’re excessive thyroid. These are simple way of life modifications that would hold you from lifetime treatment, on medicine, and dying from cancers and different issues. So, anyway, easy stuff to check for your self. And that’s what we do, by the best way. We name these self-studies. Self-studies means you do it for your self, you’re feeling what you’re feeling, and also you’ll know if it’s working. There’s no…We don’t want double-blind placebo research on this. We’re not doing medicine. We’re not testing, you realize, surgical procedures. That is one thing that’s quite simple. It could actually’t harm you to attempt it. And you’ll know if it makes you’re feeling higher. And that’s telling you it’s bettering your well being if the opposite factor you had been doing was harming you if this makes you’re feeling higher. So, that’s my recommendation for that.

Katie: That’s so, so fascinating. I’ve been taking notes and I do know we’re already to the top of our time, however I’d like to already simply say let’s go forward and schedule one other episode on actually going deep on lymphatic help and another…I’ve so many extra questions for you however you positively introduced up some actually attention-grabbing factors. I took so many notes and positively I’m excited to do some self-study myself on all of those.

This podcast is delivered to you by Joovv Crimson gentle remedy. Crimson gentle remedy, often known as photobiomodulation, is gaining reputation and with good motive.

The opposite query I like to ask on the finish of episodes, unrelated, but when there’s a e-book or a variety of books which have had a dramatic affect in your life in addition to, in fact, your personal, and if that’s the case, what they’re and why?

Sydney: I used to be pondering of that query as a result of I knew you had been gonna ask me. I feel the e-book that I’d advocate is “The Little Engine That May.” I imply, once I was a child, I had…you realize that e-book, are you aware that e-book? “I feel I can, I feel I can, I feel I can,” “The Little Engine That May.”

Katie: I do. Yeah.

Sydney: I feel that’s a extremely good e-book as a result of it reveals you could try to you may make it occur and be…You already know, I noticed that as a little bit child and I feel that helped me really feel empowered, that I may make issues occur. And once we’re speaking right here about way of life points, the place the tradition is just like the enemy, attempting to addict you to those horrible issues, and then you definitely go to the physician, after which they wanna addict you to their issues, it’s like, what do you do? It’s loopy. Sometime we should always speak about GERD, I imply, there’s…I’ve been just lately coping with these points with some individuals and learning what goes on within the proton pump inhibitors and what they actually trigger and methods to take care of these…You take a look at the issues our tradition is dealing with. There’s so many in large areas and we’re in a establishment, the place everybody’s making a living on it, the individuals promoting you the stuff making you sick, and the individuals attempting to promote you the stuff to make you higher.

And it’s actually in your personal palms. You may make your self higher. You assume you’ll be able to, and then you definitely’ll uncover, I knew I can. And you’ll really feel the distinction. You simply gotta care sufficient. Cease listening to their messages, even when you assume it’s on the web and also you learn it. I imply, that doesn’t imply actually very a lot. There’s a lot misinformation from all sides that the one factor I feel I may belief is my very own emotions, my very own physique. I imply, you gotta begin from fundamentals. Your physique and your emotions are what we’ve been given for millennia to get us by way of life, as in, you realize, healthfully and fortunately, if we take heed to our our bodies. And the tradition will get in the best way, and we let it, and we gotta cease letting it and take management over our tradition. And which means eliminating your bra and checking it out. Though you’re a little bit shy about that, attempt it. You’ll actually be ok with it. Give your self one month for being with no bra.

Go to our and verify that out. You possibly can join, after which we’ll a minimum of observe you and talk with you on it so we are able to get your story and listen to about what’s occurring, and share, and offer you encouragement and all of that. However that’s one thing you would do. Have the braveness to do these issues. Sleeping elevated is straightforward. However once more, altering patterns of sleep is just not simple. You’ve been doing it all of your life. Instantly attempting to interrupt a sample will take dedication. However that’s higher than taking medicine and being sick. And the medicine have their very own issues. So, you realize, I really feel unhealthy that the one different individuals have is medication, and medication doesn’t have these solutions to easy issues like mechanical points. They don’t even take into consideration…You’ll by no means discover a medical textbook speak about tight clothes, or gravity. And but, clearly, each have an effect on physiology.

So, how do you belief this medical group when all they eager to do is give us these lifetime medicine? And so they wanna deny these points that I’ve been combating for, notably the bra. I’m sorry, we didn’t get into all of that. Hopefully, in one other interview we are able to as a result of it’s prison what they’re doing, telling ladies to disregard what I’m telling you. Like, “Don’t take heed to this. Don’t take a look at the person behind the scenes,” You already know, understand that we’ve been ignoring this concern and telling you for 25 years to not take heed to this, and that there’s no proof, and even doing a foul research to attempt to discredit this. They really did that, that didn’t even embody bra-free ladies. It was a sham research on bras and breast most cancers that didn’t even embody ladies who don’t put on bras. So there was no management group. And that’s, like, their large research that shut all people up about this. You already know, if it wasn’t for the truth that it really works, this concern wouldn’t have survived.

That’s the factor that’s my secret success system is that if individuals attempt it, they’ll know it really works. There’s reality in it. And you would attempt it and see it. It’s nothing that’s mysterious. You already know, you’re taking off your bra, you don’t know what you’re gonna really feel you. You’ll know once you really feel it the way it feels. And there’s no thriller. You’ll be able to show it on your self. And that’s why the problem continues to be alive regardless of all of the resistance. And when you look this up on the web, you’ll see numerous makes an attempt to attempt to discredit this, to not admit their very own research, to only…After which to parrot. Everyone echoes all people else’s misinformation within the mainstream after which there’s no solution to break by way of that as a result of they’ve give you that is their tackle the bra and breast most cancers concern. They don’t need anyone to observe up on this and there’s no additional dialogue.

Though they’re eliminating bras, admitting they trigger a complete bunch of issues, however they nonetheless wanna say they will’t trigger breast most cancers, you realize, as a result of it’s gonna revolutionize their complete most cancers business. Which means each research they did that ignored the bra is like learning lung most cancers and ignoring smoking. It’s all flawed analysis that hasn’t thought of an important variable in a lady’s breast well being, which is, you realize, when you ask, “What are we doing to ourselves? What part can my tradition have on this?” It’s you’re sporting a bra, you’re constricting this stuff, to not point out capturing by way of with radiation each couple of years to search for tumors. I imply, these are different cultural issues. However sporting that bra goes to set you up.

And anyway, so, I hope I’ve given all people that’s listening the encouragement and knowledge. Go to my different web site,, and also you’ll see references and different assets. And get my e-book “Dressed to Kill.” I imply, it’s going to let you know the way it works and it’ll offer you all these research and all this data. And it’s obtainable all over the place “Dressed to Kill,” the second version, 2018. And inform your folks about this, and your kids, and your daughters.

Katie: I feel that’s an ideal place to wrap up. However completely on the spherical two, there’s nonetheless a lot extra that I even had on my record that we didn’t even get to the touch on right now. So, I’ll have my workforce already begin scheduling that. However within the meantime, positively lots of meals for thought on this one. Sydney, thanks a lot on your time. This was much more fascinating than I anticipated it to be. And I knew it was gonna be good. So, thanks a lot on your time and for sharing.

Sydney: Oh, you’re nice, Katie. Thanks very a lot.

Katie: And thanks guys as all the time for listening, and for sharing your Most worthy belongings, your time, and your vitality with us right now. We’re so grateful that you simply had been right here, and I hope that you’ll be part of me once more on the subsequent episode of the “Wellness Mama” podcast.

Should you’re having fun with these interviews, would you please take two minutes to go away a ranking or evaluate on iTunes for me? Doing this helps extra individuals to search out the podcast, which suggests much more mothers and households may benefit from the data.
