The most common conversations that i have with my hashimoto’s, patients, and that is the wonderment of the patient going and it’s. Just it’s crazy. You know i have a good day or two and then i go out and i do this and i go out and i clean the house and then i go out shopping and then i do my exercise at the gym and then boom.
I hit the wall and – and i just crash – and sometimes one of the patients i was talking to yesterday – says sometimes i crash for a couple hours. Sometimes i crash for a couple of days, and sometimes they crash for three weeks so that so what we call that is a person’s.
Metabolic capacity is low, meaning that when your physiology is working normally whatever that is today, but normally is your blood sugar’s good! You’re, getting good oxygen. You don’t. You know you there’s.
No inflammation going on you know: your nutrients are good. You’re, absorbing your foods, so you’re, getting good nutrients and you’re feeling good and you’re sleeping good and you’re. Getting a little exercise and all that type of stuff you have better substrates going to your cells, so you have better.
Like you know, you have better, you have minerals, you have vitamins, you have all that stuff getting to your cells. Basically, okay and your cells need them because in your cells there’s. These little organelles little factories called mitochondria, and these guys make energy and they need a lot of that stuff to make energy, they need oxygen, they need sugar, they need all these different things, they need certain like b vitamins, and they need a lot of different things.
Called enzymes coenzymes things of that nature, and then they make energy when you crash it’s, because that mitochondria is just like. Instead of that, much substrate, it’s, got that much okay and – and this is very common with hashimoto’s, because there are a lot of things that occur to dampen.
That, like, for example, inflammation alone, will neutralize your cells. It’ll use it’ll neutral. It’ll. It’ll damage the cell walls of all of your cells, and we now also know that it will actually create an inflammatory response on the cell on the wall of the mitochondria.
Here’s, your cell here’s. This tiny little mitochondria, in fact you have lots of them in there and then and then the outside wall of that mitochondria actually gets inflamed. And then that creates an inability of nutrients to get in and out.
And so when you have hashimoto’s. As most of you know, it’s, a highly inflammatory disease in its most aggressive state – okay, not all of you are in that inflamed state, but there are other things that will cause even those who are not in that inflamed state to have that.
One of them will be a lack of oxygen okay, so if you have, for example, if you have uh sleep, apnea, okay, if you have sleep apnea and and you’re, not getting enough oxygen into the cells, then the cell becomes damaged and the Cell becomes uh, the immune response to the cell becomes damaged to get the inflammation, the mitochondria doesn’t work and um, and and so uh, and in the end, if i went through all of the things that caused that that added up to cause Your cell, to not be able to respond when you wanted to when you want to use all that energy um.
I would be here for quite some time because there’s like 39 different things, and i those of you watch this a lot. I do use the term 39 a lot because there are 39 different things. Okay, that we know of maybe next year it’ll, be 42.
I don’t know where right now we know about of 39 and then, and so so, underlying all that is usually inflammation and – and i think the point that i wanted to make here was the the two biggest underlying deficits that causes lack of Oxygen and despite the fact that there’s, you know 38 other different ones and glutathione lack of glutathione.
Now a lot of people know glutathione, they look it up and they go glutathione. It’s supposed to do this. It’s supposed to do that. It’s, pretty awesome stuff for certain things, and so glutathione is known.
I believe i’m correct on this. It’s, known as the most powerful antioxidant. That science is aware of at this current date and time and where is glutathione come from it comes from us. It’s made in our cells.
It’s supposed to be made in every cell, see the connection every cell needs it. Okay, it’s, also massively made in the liver it’s responsible for a lot of the detoxification from in the liver that you’re.
Familiar with like glutathione is what stops you from having chemical sensitivities for those who have it. You don’t have enough glutathione, okay, because glutathione, for example, let’s, say you walk by a perfume counter at macy’s, and the next thing you know um you go.
Oh, i don’t, feel so good or you’re. Walking by you know some uh laundry. You know some some commercial laundry place and and and that smell comes out with all the chemicals and you’re like man. I got ta walk on the outside street.
Those are chemicals. Okay, those are little particles, they travel through the air. They’re, going through your lungs, they go into your nostrils and your lungs and the glutathione in your system is literally here’s.
What it does here comes the chemical here and here’s. What the glue diet does it grabs it, and you’re, not going to be able to see me do this, but yeah it literally kills it. I’m like slamming it against my desk.
You know like that’s. What glutathione does it’s? It it’s. This massive antioxidant antioxidants work, the ones that are good. They work, but they’re expensive. They’re. They’re hard to produce. They’re.
They’re hard to replicate so because of the production process. They’re hard. They’re expensive, like the ones i use are expensive. So so i use them and i use them a lot, but you know they work and here’s, the thing you cannot have autoimmunity.
I believe i’m correct on this okay. So if one of my mentors is watching this – and you see that i’m – not correct call me and tell me okay, but i don’t, think you can get my understanding that you cannot chemically get autoimmunity.
If you have enough glutathione, because glutathione works with something else in your system to dampen immune responses, as well as create that energy, by by killing any of those oxidative inflammatory stresses before they become a problem and whether i don’t know whether it’s, the chicken or the egg.
There’s, autoimmunity deplete your glutathione, or have you already depleted your glutathione? You get autoimmunity. The suggestion is the suggestion. Is you’ve already depleted your glutathione, but i don’t see why it wouldn’t go both ways, but the bottom line is: if you have autoimmunity you’re gonna have low, glutathione and and And – and i think that’s, the bigger the bigger reason for this crash uh relative to uh relative to people crashing now.
I i’m. I’m gonna say don’t, go out there and buy a ton of glutathione and take it and then, if it doesn’t prevent your crash start, throwing you know things at the at the youtube channel here That i’m on because it depends on how many different triggers you have that are killing your metabolic capacity um, to be able to uh, to be able to have that energy, okay and, and and and to cause you to crash.
So if you have a lot of them, you take the you you take the glutathione and, and it it may not even feel like it’s doing anything or you may have to dose it up so much you go like. Oh, my god, like i, it’s so expensive.
I’m. Not going to do this, so i mean there’s. Variations on that that might help. If you want to you know. Well, i’m, not going to get in that, because i don’t want to start telling you how to dose online for all the obvious reasons so um, but that’s.
Those are things. Those are the things that are causing you to crash. Basically, basically, you crash, because there’s too much pressure on those mitochondria from so many different areas. Now you put a demand on them.
It’s, just not there. They’re, just not they’re, not getting the substrates. Maybe you’re. Not maybe you’re. Not maybe you’re, not absorbing your nutrients. Maybe you’re, not breaking them down. You know.
Maybe you’re, not eating them. Uh yeah there’s. Just there’s, so many things, but the big ones are oxygen and glutathione. The big big big ones are oxygen and glutathione, and you just you deplete them like.
Okay, i get i’m. Having a good day. You go out, you just like bomb it out, and the next thing you know you’re. You’re on the floor. All your pains come back. Everything is bad. This is the reason why that happens is ext and and that it is extremely common.
In fact, it’s, almost uh, it’s, almost a cardinal symptom for just autoimmune patients in general and and kind of a gauge of the severity of it. As you’ll see as time goes on. If you’re, not doing anything about it, you’ll, get you &.
# 39 ll, get more crashes more frequently. They’ll. They’ll, be worse. You’ll, be down for longer periods of time, but that’s been something that ‘ S been coming up a lot lately here when i’m talking to patients, so i thought it would be some good data to put out for you, okay, so that’s.
It talk to you again. You
