October 20, 2020

BEH PODCAST EPISODE 48Welcome to the OrganicMD podcast. We're here today. I'm still in the midst of the wildfires in California, and it's become such an issue that we decided to devote an entire podcast to dealing with the toxic smoke, the kinds of things you can do to protect yourself from the very toxic smoke from these wildfires. The smoke is now blanketing the entire earth! You know, when you're out, if you're, if you're following the air quality index, you know, if the air quality index is 200 parts per million of the small particles, being out in that air for any length of time, it's like smoking a couple of packs of cigarettes a day or more. So it's, it's pretty serious stuff, but there are things you can do.As always you will find the link to the Podcast, as well as the full transcript. You can also download a PDF of the transcript down at the bottom the page. Enjoy! BEH PODCAST EPISODE 48 - HEALING FROM THE TOXIC WILDFIRE SMOKEDr. Miller: (00:00)Hi, this is Dr. Damon Miller. Welcome to the OrganicMD podcast. We're here today. I'm still in the midst of the wildfires in California, and, it's become such an issue that we decided to devote an entire podcast to dealing with the toxic smoke, the kinds of things you can do to protect yourself from the very toxic smoke from these wildfires. The smoke is now blanketing the entire earth! You know, when you're out, if you're, if you're following the air quality index, you know, if the air quality index is 200 parts per million of the small particles, being out in that air for any length of time, it's like smoking a couple of packs of cigarettes a day or more. So it's, it's pretty serious stuff, but there are things you can do. Dr. Miller: (00:51)And we're going to talk about that. I'm going to be doing this today, with Christine Rosche. so Christine Rosche is a master of public health and a certified nutritional specialist. And she's, worked for years and years as a specialist with the microbiome and digestive health, is an expert that's developed an integrative approach to health and stress management, and has had over 25 years in this field, including a lot of years recently here in the San Francisco Bay area, working at Stanford. She's written a couple of books, and it's just a really good on this. Now you ask how is a bowel specialist useful here, you want to understand that in most of the major medical systems in the world, besides Western medicine, you know, Vedic medicine, Oriental medicine, and even a lot of the indigenous medicines, there's a clear understanding that the lungs and the gut are linked. The health of one depends on the health of the other. I like the poetry of it in Oriental medicine. The lungs are responsible for bringing in pure energy from heaven and the bowels are responsible for getting rid of everything you don't want. So anyhow, let's, let's just say hi to Christine. Hi Christine. Christine: (02:05)Thank you so much, Damon, and, I'm delighted to be here with you.

Thank you. So Christine, start us off here. You've been doing a lot of research in preparation for this talk. So, I know we're going to be talking about a number of things, just basically how to protect yourself from the smoke, how to detoxify from the smoke. some things that can be done, in terms of herbs and supplements and, you know, and different kinds of essences and, and how to work with the bow, which we have said is a critical part, keeping your bow functional, healthy, moving, is an important part of all this. So go, go ahead and take, take, take off with this here. Christine: (03:10)Thank you with aim on one of the key pieces of research that came out re...
