In an effort to answer all of your questions, we've added a brief Q & A post here:

#1 (What are BodyPure2x Detox Foot Pads?)

foot detox pads Do you suffer from restless sleep, a sluggish immune system or poor circulation? If so you are not alone. Many people share these common ailments but have no idea what’s causing them. The culprit is often a buildup of toxins and heavy metals in your body.

The BodyPure2x detox foot patch is a natural, herbal, foot detox pads (or patches) worn on the arch of the foot for up to 10 hours at a time. Their purpose is to eliminate toxins (includes heavy metals) leaving the body refreshed and healthier.

Our BodyPure2x foot detox pads are safe and effective, made of 100% natural ingredients and are easy to apply. The Japanese have been using this product to combat fatigue, improve circulation, increase metabolism, enhance quality of sleep, help release toxins and as a general practice to stay healthy and clean for quite a long time!

Each box contains 10 (10 hour) Foot Detox Pads. If you act now and purchase 3 boxes, you will receive a Free CTS Used Pad Analysis ($15 value). This product is “Made in the USA”, and includes a Risk-Free Manufacturer's Guarantee.

#2 (What does the '2x' in BodyPure2x Detox Pads stand for?)

Why 2X? Because BodyPure2x detox foot pads contain more than twice (2 times or 2X) the active ingredients of any other foot pad on the market today. Not only does this double dose enhance your natural detox program, but it also makes BodyPure2x the best deal of its kind on the market. For the same low price you get “2X’s” the product!

#3 (How Do the BodyPure2x Detox Pads Work?)

BodyPure mainly uses the natural elements of tree sap to draw toxins from your system. The evidence of this can be seen by the residue drawn onto the pad after proper use. The pad encourages self-healing by promoting circulation and releasing toxins through the Kidney Meridian located on the sole of the foot.

You don’t have to worry about putting more toxins into your body in order to detox! Don’t be fooled by products that lure you in by promising health but secretly contain ingredients that are harmful or hard on your body. BodyPure2x does not treat or cure anything by releasing any active ingredients into the body. It simply stimulates your natural system to detoxify and cleanse.

#4 (What Is The Science Behind Foot Detox Pads?)

Are you a bit skeptical about how a simple and all natural foot pad can really relieve you from harmful toxins? It’s really not that hard to believe once you understand how it works. When toxins are absorbed into the system, most become embedded in our tissue. As the BodyPure2x detox pads are placed on our skin, the natural herbs interact, and begin their work by emitting far infrared energy. The infrared rays not only enhances the cells functions directly, but also stimulate the Kidney 1 Meridian on the soles of the feet, creating a second front for detoxification.

foot placement detox pads We’re not the only ones paying attention to this area. The Kidney 1 Meridian is used extensively by Acupuncturists and Acupressurists to promote healing and relieve tension. In essence, the BodyPure2x foot detox pads gently stimulate this point for an 8 to 10 hour period. Click the image to see the location of the Kidney 1 Meridian on the sole of the foot. #17 (or the right kidney point) is what you are looking for.

Discovering the “Minus Ion Effect”: In addition, the wood vinegar extract in the foot patches allows for a phenomenon known in Asia as the "minus ion effect". By creating an osmotic shift in the herb/skin interface it permits the transfer of toxins. This "minus ion effect" induced by the detox pads, accelerates the natural excretion process (through the pores), and allows the body to purge toxins at a faster rate.

#5 (Is there any proof behind the Detox Pads?)

If “seeing is believing,” then you will have no problem testing the validity of our Foot Detox Pads. The visual evidence after using the BodyPure2x pad is, in itself, compelling. The progress is most apparent when used over a few consecutive days.

Multiple samples of our pads were sent to SRC Analytical Lab, a highly accredited Environmental Laboratory. The results demonstrated absorption into the patch of Nickel, Arsenic and Mercury amongst others.

The product constantly works even when tested again and again using many case studies. Multiple detox pads for various individuals were analyzed by using a syncrometer. The syncrometer, an electronic device used to detect individual substances by using a circuit and matching frequencies. The following substances have been identified in the used detox pads through this method: benzene, isopropyl alcohol, methyl alcohol, aluminum, cadmium, copper, lead, mercury, nickel, thallium, arsenic, asbestos, DAB dye, fast green dye, sudan black dye and PCB (plastic byproduct).

foot detox pads test The results don’t stop there. We even went so far as to do a screening of the individuals themselves. Hair analysis testing of toxin levels in individuals before and after the use of the BodyPure2x foot detox pads have been conducted. Want to know what they found? Click on the image to enlarge!

#6 (How Do I Use The Detox Pads?)

This deceptively simple product, made from all natural ingredients, is extraordinarily easy to use. You wear the detox pads or patches on your feet, usually while asleep (full instructions are also provided in each box).

Initially, BodyPure2x should be used nightly (only on one foot) for a recommended period of thirty days. If you feel that you have been exposed more extensively to toxins, you may choose to prolong the 30 day period or use patches on both feet. After the initial cleansing period, simple maintenance is recommended by using one patch every two to three weeks at most.

All of the “work” is done for you while you sleep!

#7 (Are the Detox Pads Safe To Use?)

The BodyPure2x foot detox pads are entirely safe to use. They are, after all, made from natural ingredients which simply promote health and detoxification in the body. Although the foot detox pads have been used extensively in Japan for many years, we have also conducted thorough laboratory testing for safety as well.

When it comes to quality, we don’t mess around. BodyPure2x is manufactured from the highest quality wood vinegar extracts, not packed with extra fillers.

There is absolutely NO Ethylene Glycol in our product (exposure to ethylene glycol can damage the kidneys, heart, and nervous system which is the opposite of what you are trying to achieve).

In addition to keeping your body healthy we also strive for excellance in our customer service as well.  Just to make sure you can order from us free of doubt or worry, click here to view our unconditional money back guarantee.

#8 (The Origin of Detox Pads)

Naturalistic and alternative medicine has been used in Japan and other Asian cultures for many thousands of years. It has long been a school of thought that many health issues could be cured by improving circulation and eliminating toxins from the body. Over time, products containing these same natural ingredients began surfacing in Western Culture as well and have been gaining popularity ever since. The BodyPure Detox Pads have been refined by Dr. Vinograd, a Naturopath and Biocompatible Dentist in San Diego, for over 10 years.

#9 (Do We Really Need To Detoxify?)

You might be thinking to yourself that all this talk in the media about “detoxing” is a big scam and wondering if it’s really necessary for optimal health. Let me ask you this. Do you suffer from; poor elimination, bloating, gas, “brain fog”, forgetfulness, headaches, allergies, overeating, poor circulation, fatigue, mood swings, bad breath, stiff joints, cold hands and feet, recurring infections, indigestion, poor skin, cellulite, or lower back pain?

I’m sure you see yourself in that list of symptoms somewhere, they are common issues that many people deal with on daily basis and write off as being “just a part of life.” Well, you don’t have to live this way anymore! The simple fact is, that many of things are either caused by a build-up of toxins in the body or could be improved by eliminating toxins or improving circulation.

Toxicity is rampant in our modern world. We are surrounded by toxic chemicals and pollutants each and every day. The chart below lists the signs and symptoms of toxicity according to detoxification expert Elson Haas M.D. You can also Click Here for a list of contaminants and their sources. Invariably these toxic waste and pollutants lead to disease.

detox pads toxic symptoms

The outside of the body is easy to wash and keep clean, but how do we keep the inside of our body clean? Physicians have known for centuries that health problems can result from the accumulation of foreign substances in our bodies. Even so, human exposure to toxins has reached alarming levels.

So what is the solution? In an ideal world we would simply eliminate all those agents that are causing toxicity and disease, but realistically, if we are to live and stay healthy in this post industrial revolution era, we must detoxify our bodies at least at the same rate as we are being contaminated. To further protect your health, look for easy to use, non-invasive products with natural ingredients, like the BodyPure2x foot detox pads. Get yours at a substantial discount here, and start your natural detox today.

How To Remove Toxic Mold From Your Home And Clean Up Your Act

Mold RemovalYou may carry your antibacterial wipes with you everywhere you go and use hand sanitizer gel frequently, yet you could be living in a home where toxic mold is growing and not even know it — or know it and not be worried enough to take action.

Mold in a home is something that causes so many homeowners worry — and with just cause.

It’s essential that you take mold as seriously as you do bacteria and germs. You wouldn’t eat molded food, yet perhaps you live in proximity to this toxic substance all the time. For many people, living around mold will eventually cause the symptoms of mold toxicity or mold exposure to show up. These can include things like sinus and nasal problems, a cough that never seems to go away and perhaps even problems breathing.

If you have these symptoms and can’t find a cause, it may be time to contact a mold removal specialist like our team at Orange Restoration for mold testing and perhaps mold removal.

You may consider tackling the problem of mold removal yourself, but it isn’t that easy to handle. You can grab some bleach, spray it on and watch the mold change colors. But that doesn’t necessarily kill the mold or prevent it from regrowing. It simply fades out the color. In most cases, physical removal of mold by scrubbing it away or removing the material that contains it is necessary. And that must be done in special conditions so that the mold spores aren’t released into the home to start growing again elsewhere.

When you choose mold remediation specialists like our team at Orange Restoration, the first step is testing to see whether mold is present and what type it is. Then, if necessary, mold removal can begin. For small amounts of relatively harmless mold, simple cleaning may be all that’s necessary to remove it. Even household cleaning products may be able to remove the most minor infestations, but some mold may be released into the air.

In more severe cases, deep cleaning is necessary. When a porous building material has been thoroughly infiltrated with mold, total removal of the material and replacement may be the best course of action. In the worst cases, all furnishings, tiles, carpets and other materials will need to be replaced. This may seem like drastic action, but it’s necessary.

The only way you can be sure you have thoroughly removed as much mold from your home as possible is to take drastic action and then test again to make sure mold spore levels have gone down significantly. When you take aggressive action, you can prevent regrowth of the mold and improve the overall health and quality of your home.

Of course, at the same mold remediation is taking place, you need to make sure that the conditions that allowed for the warm, damp, mold-friendly environment are remedied. This means fixing leaks and elimination source of humidity and water damage.

Once you’ve had mold removal done in your San Diego home, you can go back to enjoying it in whatever ways you like.

What Risk Factors Of Oral Cancer Should Denture Wearers Watch Out For?

Denture Patient Biting AppleMore than 30,000 people are diagnosed with oral cancer every year in the U.S., and an astounding 8,000 people die for this disease. Men are twice as likely to develop this disease as women, but no one is immune. And since the death rate from oral cancer is particularly high because of its frequent late discover, it’s important for denture wearers and everyone else to be on the lookout for the risk factors that make you more likely than the average person to develop this condition.


These include:

Tobacco usage. As many as 90 percent of people who get oral cancer use tobacco in one form or another. The longer you have used cigarettes, cigars, pipes or smokeless tobacco, the greater your risk.

Excess alcohol consumption. As many as 80 percent of oral cancer patients drink alcohol to excess. When you combine drinking with smoking, you are at a significantly increased risk of oral cancer.

Exposure to sunlight. Ultraviolet light exposure can greatly raise your risk of developing cancer of the lip in particular.

Age. Most people who get oral cancer are over 40, and the risk increases with age. More than 50 percent of oral cancer patients are over age 65.

Irritation. Especially important for denture wearers is limiting irritation that can lead to cancer development. Badly fitting dentures have been shown to be a risk factor for oral cancer, although the link is not firmly established.


To eliminate or reduce irritation as a risk factor, some choose to stabilize and improve the fit of their dentures with dental implants. Could today’s thin, narrow implant-supported dentures be the right choice for you?

Most people who make the decision to improve the quality of their lives by choosing implants to support their dentures never regret the decision.

8 Questions to Ask When Deciding on CE Courses

dental continuing education course
You have to take a certain number of continuing education hours each year.  How do you decide where to invest your time and money?  The answers are in our article ‘Dental Continuing Education Courses With Dentox‘, but here are some things to consider when making that decision.

  1. Where do your patients spend their discretionary income?  Some of your patients may be spending thousands every year on Botox and dermal fillers and making a separate appointment at a separate office to do so.  They’re at your office on a regular basis for checkups anyway.  If they could get the treatments at the same time, it would save them time, and add to your bottom line.  Win-win.
  2. Where do your friends spend their discretionary income?  If your friends are getting these treatments, this indicates that there is a market for them in your area.
  3. How do you get started offering these procedures?  Once you are trained and certified in administering the injections, simply let your existing patients know that you now offer the new services and that you learned from the world’s top practitioner.
  4. What does it cost to start offering these services?  The live course is $1600, the online course is $700.  Both are equally intensive and will give you the confidence you need to administer injections for a variety of situations.  Botox and dermal fillers require no new equipment, your only investment after the training course is the actual product.
  5. After you take the course, how much do you stand to lose if you do not perform the procedure?  Nothing at all except whatever you may have invested in product to get you started.  Compared to a CT scan machine that easily costs six figures, the risk associated with your new investment is very low.
  6. What are the consequences of failure when compared to other procedures?  The effects of these injectable treatments are temporary.  The most common problem associated is that they don’t last long enough.
  7. Is a training course required to offer these procedures?  Malpractice insurers typically require professionals to attend an approved program such as those offered at Dentox.
  8. What else can you do for your practice that will give the same return on your investment?  The fact of the matter is, no other service or new procedure offers the same return on your investment of time and money as Botox.  You spend thousands on another course, plus tens or even hundreds of thousands more on equipment and spend years paying it back, or you can spend less than two thousand and make it back the very first time you do the procedure.

Before you spend a bunch of money on training and equipment for something that you may not use, consider Dentox!

Natural Pain Relief To Accompany Your Detox

Using detoxfoot pads can help with circulation issues, amongst other things. People who suffer with pain in (and around) the foot often turn to this product due to it being100% natural. Many people out there may be missing a trick though. Imagine if there was a way to “supercharge” your detox and take it to another level, while keeping it all natural. Sounds good, hey?By also using a TENS unit for your foot pain you can take it to another level.

The TENS unit explained

A TENS unit (for those who don’t already know) is a small device, usually battery powered. It is used to carry out TENS therapy, which involves low voltage electrical current, used to stimulate the nerves. TENS units come with a set of wires and electrodes. The electrodes are best described as reusable sticky pads, these are placed on the area that is in pain. They attach to the end of the wires, which are plugged into the TENS unit. When switched on and set, the device sends low voltage electrical impulses through the wires and electrodes to the body. The electrical impulses stimulate the nerves and this releases endorphins (the body’s natural painkillers). This reduces the sensation of pain in the body and can be used for a number of pain relieving requirements, including: arthritis, diabetic neuropathy,plantar fasciitis, restless legs syndrome,tarsal tunnel syndrome. In fact, TENS therapy can be used for just about any chronic or acute pain.

TENS unit

TENS history and safety

To somebody who hasn’t tried TENS, it may sound a bit strange – and possibly even dangerous to use electricity to treat pain. However, this isn’t the case. The use of electrical stimulation for pain control can be traced back to the Romans, albeit by standing on electrical fish. Over time the concept was developed and the TENS unit arrived.Medical professionals have been prescribing TENS for over 30 years now. There have been no long or short-term health risks linked to the use of TENS units. All reputable manufacturers have their TENS units tested and cleared by the FDA.

Using a TENS unit on your feet

People who use or have used TENS units on their feet will be familiar with the standard setup (as discussed earlier, a device with electrodes). But in recent years new innovative products have been developed to work with TENS devices. Rather than just using electrodes it is possible to purchase massage shoes and TENS socks to use with the machines. These products are used to conduct the electricity and offer something different than using electrodes, only.They can be purchased as individual products, to use with an existing TENS unit or with the machine, as a package. If you want to look into a TENS unit for foot pain, read this. There are a number of options available to you, depending upon your requirements and how much you’re looking to spend.

TENS massage shoes

The next step (pun intended!)

Before running out to the shop and buying yourself a TENS unit, make sure that you book an appointment with your doctor or medical professional. While TENS units are available over the counter, without a prescription – people are advised to check that it’s going to be suitable for them. There are a handful of cases where people should not use a TENS unit so be sure to speak to an expert and do the necessary research first. Never use one of these devices without seeking professional advice and reading the instruction manual.

Spring Cleaning P5

So, my soap box.  I’m pretty loyal once in a while.  We’re talking about health care.  If I had it my way, sure you could have health insurance, but I’m not paying for your health insurance if you don’t take some personal responsibility for your health.  If I see that your lifestyle is in conjunction with the way that you should be living it, I’m not paying for your health care anymore. That’s fair, right?

So, if you want to have national health care, health care for everyone, I’ve got you. I dig it, but you know what?  People better start stepping up.  Alright, I’m done with this.

When’s my soap box?

We don’t have enough time for that.

So, what’s our approach?  We’ve got to get to the cause.  You know us.  That’s how we operate.  We’ve got to find the cause of what’s going on and then support the body.  We start with proper lifestyle and dietary changes.  There are absolutely no exceptions to this.  You and your body are not going to be friends.  If you don’t want to do this, “Fine, I’ll still love you.  Just don’t complain about how things are falling apart. I’ll do the best with what you allow me to do, but just accept it. ”

No more eating what you please.  I love chocolate. I’m glad you enjoy your cockroaches.  Just accept it.  It’s not helping your situation.  It’s nasty.   No more skipping meals.  I feel nauseated.  So?  Look, it requires pain to change.

The most important meal for these people is breakfast.  I don’t know who said that.  I thought it was some wise deal or something, something that Midwestern people on the farm.  The most important meal of the day is breakfast.

So, blood sugar people, listen up.  Your ideal meal is protein dominant, right in fatty acids, low on simple sugars.  Egg, salmon, chicken, vegetables, even high quality protein shakes with an emphasis on the high quality protein.  You are to avoid juices and sweets.  Too much sugar.  “But it makes my Clear Vite taste so much better.”  Oh well.

I was proud of Danielle.  Danielle had it with water today.  I was like, “Go, girl!” I can get it down, right?  It’s not like a slurpy.  Just get it down, right?

Snacks are an absolute must.  Snacks cannot be like a fruit.  I had a banana. I had an apple.  No apples, right?  You’re better off having a snack like an organic chicken link like sausage, which is good, by the way.  I highly recommend it.   Whole Foods.  We’re probably going to take a field trip there someday.

Why not fruits as a snack?

Because it’s too much sugar for these people with blood sugar issues.

Apples are the worst?

Alright.  If you guys want the PowerPoint, talk to someone on the staff, and we can e-mail it to you tonight because I plan ahead.

Best meals are lean meats, vegetables, beans.  So, let’s paint some pictures because I know I’m hungry.  Chicken fajitas, lots of peppers, onions, chicken, beans, non-refried beans, and if you have those tortillas that she has that are made out of brown rice, that’s good.  I should get a kickback.  Legumes are beans.

Do you see potatoes on that list?


Do you see chips on that list?


French frieds?


Rice? No.  Brown rice, but I’m kind of Asian.  Brown rice is like I stepped on the Bible or something. It’s just not right.  How can a billion people be wrong, right? S

So, this is, in many ways, more strict than the way you guys are eating now, well, not now but tomorrow because in many ways, your carbs are massively reduced.  Have you guys ever heard of the zone diet?  Something like that, but lean meat, 20%, vegetables, 80%. Are you with me?  Not the other way around.

So, when you go to Pinnacle Peak and get a nice big, old Cowgirl Steak, notice how I said Cowgirl, not Cowboy, because the Cowboy Steak’s too big for everybody in this room.

I have no idea what you’re talking about.

Does anyone know what Pinnacle Peak is?


Where is this?

There aren’t a lot of Asians in there.

Yeah, let’s send him back.  We’ll give you back.

Send him with that nice tie.


I’m never taking you to these nice, special places.  Tell my wife.

Alright. So, you have to monitor how you feel.  If you eat, you are fatigued or crave sweets afterwards, then you have consumed too many calories, and your body has surged insulin to compensate for that.  So, when get that surge of insulin, you’re like, “I need something sweet.”

Everyone’s level’s different.  That’s pretty strong.  So, you have to learn your amounts.  That’s very important.  How are we doing on time, by the way?  My soap box time off?  Yeah, we’re almost done.

You have to also have to identify your food sensitivities and your tolerances.  Now, this is important. I’m going to spend some time on this.  Many of you want a kit, and we have a kit tonight that tests for the top four food sensitivities.  What are they?  Eggs, berry, gluten, and soy.  If you consume those, and you are sensitive to those things, your body will produce, will have an immune response to it.

Well, you also have food tolerations and sensitivities that are not measure the same way.  For example, with MSG, some people really react to MSG.  Well, there are other things in this world that will do the same thing.  For example, corn.  Some people tomatoes.  Some people eggplants.  We’re going to talk more about this next week, but I really advise that when you do this it, if everything comes back negative it’s not like a stamp to say, “Bring it all on.  I can do it, and there’s no issue with it.” No, these are the top four that people have significant issues with, but other ones exist.  Sorry to burst your bubble.

So, the key goals are to remove all reasons for inflammation. When you have blood sugar problems like diabetics do, remove all reasons for your body to be inflamed. You’ve got to clean up your got.  You guys already started that process. You’re almost done with that process.  Help the body regulate blood sugar levels naturally.  Be smart on how you eat.  Minimize use of medications and side effects and dependency issues.

If we could manage our blood sugar without medication, would that be of interest to you?  Absolutely.  Would it be of interest to you to be on your medication, make some changes and realize you might not had to use as much medication?  Would that be cool?  Yeah.  “Doc, guess what?  Check my blood sugar or the last two weeks.  I made some significant changes in my lifestyle and how I eat, and my blood sugar is really low.  You think we can modify my medication?”  Absolutely, you’ll be doing that.

So, we want to prevent the medication in the first place, and if you have it, we want to minimize damage.  Prevent complications because you can have diabetes.  People with diabetes right now, anyone can make drastic changes and have it under control.

Here’s some herbs. I’m not spend time on it because I don’t have time to, but I can e-mail it to you, some herbs and nutrients that have been shown by way of studies that help with diabetes.  Here’s more.  There’s a ton of stuff out there for diabetes.

So, in closing, diabetes is very close to my heart. I remember at a young age when my grandmother come from Minnesota to visit my family.  She would, in the morning, have to pinch her arm, and then she’d take a syringe and inject the insulin right there. I mean, I was very young. I was like a kid, and it was just kind of like no big deal.  Diabetes, okay.  I didn’t really know what that meant, but I wonder now.  I wonder if she had this information and if we were able to achieve some lifestyle changes in my grandmother, I wonder if we’d be able to avoid the dementia that she went through and all the difficulties that she had.  I’d never know.

Who do you know with diabetes?  Unfortunately, I probably know people that have it that don’t know they have it.  So, you guys got to think long and hard, not only about other people but also about yourself because you guys have these issues.  You may not have diabetes, but I’ve seen enough paperwork, just the assessment forms, that so many of you guys have blood sugar issues.

I don’t know how much more to stress this that you guys got to get this one under control.  Many of you guys have made some massive changes just in the two weeks that you’ve gone through this cleanse.  The last week’s been very strict, very difficult for some of you, but man, have there been some changes in you guys.  Crazy.  I lost 15 pounds.  In two weeks? Crazy. Ten pounds? I’m up to two times a day.  From what? Every other.

So, there’s some serious things that are changing in you guys now, and that’s only after two freaking weeks.  Give your body another week. Give your body another month.  I’m excited for you, guys, if you’re excited to take that on.

So, thank you for your time.  Next week is the last day.  Next week is like the last day of the cleanse.  I’m good. I’m just like excited for Friday night.  I’m ready.

Topic next week is what’s next.  We’re going to talk now that the fast is done, what’s next?  We’re going to talk about adding foods back into your system and your menu, and we’re going to talk about the last diet.  A little taste of the last diet is it’s a three-month menu of what to eat including recipes, recipes that can go deep, but it’s a three-month cookbook/shopping list.  Really, it’s broken down for you, and some of you guys will do this.

If you follow this, you’re not starving yourself by any means.  It will require more time to prepare your food because these are recipes.  You’ve got to cook the food, you know?  I mean like meatloaf, which some people aren’t excited about.  This one’s really healthy and good, or beef and cabbage and stuffed chicken and good stuff.

So, we’ll talk about that next time, but I thank you guys for your time.  I’ll see you guys next week.  Enjoy tomorrow’s breakfast as much as I wouldn’t.  I’ll take questions.  You guys, feel free to go.

Spring Cleaning P4

You ate all her food.  She didn’t get any. 

Yeah. I was like, I came out asking for a hamburger.

So, traditional medical model treatment approach, unfortunately, is medication, and their primarily goal is to lower your blood sugar.  Remember the analogy that we used for the house on fire?  The primary goal of the primary department is to put out the fire, and I will use any and all tools, means to get that job done.

You have diabetes.  You have an inflammatory process. Your blood sugar is so high. I’m going to do everything I can to get that under control, which they do, but once the fire is out, who do you call to rebuild the house? Do you use the hoses and the axes to rebuild the house?  No.  It requires a different mindset.

That analogy works really well with diabetes.  Unfortunately, what they do is they say, “Okay, here have this medication for the rest of your life.  We’re going to monitor your blood sugar.  We’re going to have to make some additions, subtractions.  We’ll keep it monitored.  Stay on the medication.  Don’t miss it. Don’t miss your medications.  By the way, go out and change.  Make sure you’re not eating these,” as opposed to, “Look, you’re going to have to change your lifestyle massively.”

The whole, “by the way” kind of thing is really that 80% to 90% of importance.  Medication should be when things get out of control.  If you’re monitoring, go ahead and use that medication.  Keep it at bay.  Unfortunately, it’s flip-flopped, and unfortunately, it’s because our nation wants that.  We want you to eat our crack and just take the medication to make it go away.  That’s our medication.  That’s the way we are.  That’s the way we’re trained. I mean, how many commercials have you seen of people happy, jumping through fields of lilies for a drug?  You have no idea what it does or what it’s for, but they look happy.  You want to be happy, too.

Some side effects maybe that you want to crap yourself after taking this medication.

Yeah.  We have this one doctor who was making a joke about a medication, and I can’t remember the drug.   We were, “If you’re a man and you experience an erection for four hours, please call your doctor.” I mean, if I experience an erection for four hours, I’m not calling my doctor.

So, let’s change gears.  Let’s talk drugs.  This is my least favorite subject in all of school. I just slept through that class. I could not develop the interest.  First of all, realize this. If your goal is to reduce blood sugar, medical doctors are very good with physiology.  They know how pathways work.

If you look at every single pathway that you have in your body as it pertains to sugar, and lowering sugar, they’ll look to control one little enzyme or set down something or make something reaction.  So, these seven methods are all different pathways or categories of how we control your blood sugar or how your body controls blood sugar.

So, with drugs, they will increase insulin secretion from beta cells. Your beta cells in your pancreas produce insulin.  So, they will give you a drug that will boost that because insulin is what reduces blood sugar by taking it into your cells or producing glycogen or fat, even.

They also give you a drug to inhibit or stop carbohydrate digestion.  In other words, from the moment you put the food in your mouth, what your body decides to break and use as sugar, let’s control that just like if you don’t want to be fat, don’t consume fat.  So, we’ll give you something that will bind with the fat so that I won’t even be absorbed by the body.

They also give you a drug that will delay the ingestion of carbohydrates.  They’ll give you drugs that will decrease the liver sugar output.  Remember, if you’re on a bicycle and you’re going for how many miles and your body’s out of glucose, let’s break down some glycogen.  Well, it will decrease the liver’s ability to do that.

There are some drugs that will the increase insulin-dependent glucose use in muscles.  In other words, muscles, let’s make sure you’re using more glucose.  There are some drugs that will increase your tissue’s sensitivity to insulin.  In other words, it will just make it use it better or faster.  Then, there’s obviously, we’ll just change the dosage and the insulin in your body.

That’s how they get it done. Those will fall into these categories of drug.  So, if you have diabetes or know someone who has diabetes, don’t be surprised if they’re in two or three or four different families of medications to achieve those different processes.  Don’t try pronouncing them, but each one will have different drugs in them.  These are the families, again, with the goal of what we just talked about.

Who wants to play a game?  You guys can all be one team.  Let’s play the common sense game, shall we?  Question number one: What do you think happens to the beta cells when you force your beta cells to produce more and more insulin by way of drugs?

Beta cells get exhausted.  What do beta cells do?  Produce insulin found in the pancreas.  Here’s a bonus question:  If they get exhausted, what then can happen?  They get exhausted, burnt out, and they shut down, which is called diabetes.

We’re killing ourselves.

We’re killing ourselves with the medication that they’re using to put out the fire.  Well, they’re focused on reducing blood sugar, right?  I get that, but just realize that to manage it is a whole other level.  It’s common sense, though, right?  I mean, you guys are not doctors, right?

What do you think happens when you force the pancreas to release more and more insulin, not just to produce more but to release what it has?  It becomes dependent upon that.  It becomes resistant to doing it on its own.  Make sense?

What do you think happens when you inhibit your digestive system’s ability to break down the food that you’re consuming?  No energy.  Even worse than that, if you tell your system to stop working, it does.  Doesn’t that sound silly to you?

If you did that for a very long period of time, you wouldn’t be alive.

That’s exactly right.  If you don’t use your shoulder long enough, it’s going to freeze.  If you don’t exercise, your bone density’s going to go down on fat called Wolff’s Law.

What do you think happens when you force your tissues to be more sensitive to insulin? Hint, cocaine, antibiotics, painkillers. “You know what, doc?  The medication doesn’t seem to be working like it was before.”  “Oh, no problem.  Let’s just increase the dose.” “You know, I was doing good, but I don’t think it’s doing good anymore.” Have you guys heard of antibiotic resistance to bacteria?

It requires more and more to produce the same or less effect.  Increased resistance, insulin resistance. Anyone getting depressed yet?

What do you think happens when you give insulin? You gain weight, for sure.  If I’m giving you insulin, you say your body will stop producing it. Well, tissues become more insulin-resistant, but you’re absolutely right.  So, like in a team, if someone’s doing all the work, I’m going to go on vacation.  Thanks, doc.

So, how common is common sense?  It’s actually very dangerous? “Well, but it’s what my medical doctor said I need to do.”  You’re absolutely right.  Who here knows diabetic patients that started with one medication then to another medication of another family then to another medication of a different family, and now they’re threatening you, “Look, if things don’t change, we’re going to have to put on the insulin.”  It’s like the biggest threat.  Diabetics get like, “I know what this is.”

Then, when we talk with them, “Look, you’re going to have to make some lifestyle changes.”  “I don’t want to give up my coffee and my donut in the morning.” Then, you want to talk about dying sooner.

I keep on my desk.  Actually, it came out March 15th.  So, a month ago.  LA Times. I don’t read the newspaper often, but this day, I happened to.  Maybe once a week.  “Intensive Therapy May Hurt Diabetics”.  That kind of sparked my interest.  What’s this?  Studies suggest that doctors may have reached the limit on what they can do.  What!?  I’ve got to read more.

Then I read the other point about a thing written by Dr. Denize Morton.  It said, “The standard care approaches are pretty good.” Huh!? You’re kidding, right?  I know what the standard approaches are.  They suck.  People are dying as a result of the standard approaches.  They’re not pretty good.  It actually says that if we try to go beyond that, it doesn’t provide any additional benefit.  No joke.  In fact, it makes them worse.  The article even talks about how another person goes on more therapy in order to reduce their blood sugar levels or the hypertension or lipid panels.  It makes them sicker or worse.  Their lifestyle goes down.

So, I’m like, “I’ve got to read this whole thing here,” but the good news is always a bright side.  She says, “The following show that this will reduce the cost and potential side effects of drug therapy.” It means that patients will not have to work as hard at reducing sugar and lipid and blood pressure.

Okay, first of all, I must be looking at something a little bit different here. I see the good side that now that studies support that more drugs are not better and recommending them is a bad idea, that’s going to save on costs.  I got you.  I’m with you.

Yes, by not having those things, those extra things, will minimize all the side effects. I agree with you, but to say that a person has to now not work as hard to lower these different things, you’re on some cocaine.  Okay.

My personal opinion, I love that.  Her personal opinion is that we need to put more effort and prevention.  No kidding.  By the way, she’s like big whoop-di-do somewhere with the National Heart, Lung, Blood Institute.  She says that if we prevent diabetes in the first place, we reduce risk.  Once they have diabetes and risk factors, we, as doctors, are never going to be able to treat down to a level of risk as if they have never had the disease or diabetes.  That is absolutely true.

In other words, work out your salvation. Look, this is a serious matter. If you don’t take care of this now before you’re full on diabetic, it’s never going to be easier.  What’s scary is this happened a month ago, and this is still news.  Man, we’ve got a lot of work to do.
