Histamine H1-H4/Raw Carnivore Diet #0008
In this episode you will learn about some of the differences between H1-H4 receptor agonist herbs, and why you'd want to consider a combination when up against histamine-overload symptoms or mast cell activation syndrome. The Raw Carnivore Diet continues to improve my health, and thus far is the single most impactful thing I have done to date. One of the biggest lessons I've learned about experimenting with different supplements, herbs and protocols is that you must be meticulous in all areas, from journaling, to integration, and listen to your body. Additionally knowing mechanisms helps as sometimes symptoms from herbs means you are actually getting the desired impact (biofilm busting herbs for example often make you worse cause they expose your tissues to hidden infections thereby increasing localized inflammation). Affiliate Disclosure: We make monies off the orders you make through these links. This helps us fund our never-ending research/experimentation to provide you all with higher level insights into wellness strategies to lead to a more optimal experience ^_^. Product Suggestions Seeking Health ProBiota HistaminX [Helpful in reducing overall histamine load in the gut and for those with dysbiosis. I did have some mild symptoms of nausea and toxic feeling the first 4-7 days of use than it balanced out.] Seeking Health Histamine Block [This product led to cardiac symptoms similar to atrial fibrillation, I spoke directly with Dr. Ben Lynch and he has never had any such reports from this product. It's well worth a try for those looking to reduce histamine load.] Oregon's Wild Harvest Nettle [A great H1 receptor agonist. I found 6-8 caps a day split throughout the day to be effective in as little as 4 days of use. This was somewhat effective for tachycardia.] Oregon's Wild Harvest Holy Basil [A great H2 receptor agonist. I found 6-8 caps to be effective for tachycardia symptoms along with overall itchiness at night. Coupled together with Nettle these are fantastic at reducing histamine-driven tachycardia.] Yamoa Capsules [It was far too long ago when I tried this (12 years back) so I can't vouch for it, but it looks to be a promising H3 receptor agonist for those curious to experiment.] Banyan Botanicals Kutaja Powder[Never experimented with this product, but it's high on my list as it looks to be a potent H3 receptor agonist. Just beware it is a biofilm-busting herb, which means it can cause die-off symptoms for those curious.] Pure Synergy Matcha Powder [It got me too high-feeling, so I can't say how good it is as a histamine reducing herb but it has many other health benefits provided you don't find it too stimulatory.] Dry Farm Wines [My all-time favorite wine, while I do think FitVine is on the right track, I can say my body prefers Dry Farm Wines.] Elephantopus Scaber Ayurvedic Herb [If you can find a reliable source let me know as this could be a potent H4 receptor agonist, and well worth the exploration.]  Cheers Comrades, Brandon Trean BCTMB, HHP, NC Cheers Comrades, Brandon Trean BCTMB, HHP, NC

Diet & Mental Health Decay #0007
In this episode I speak towards the subtle decay of mental health from the slightest changes in diet. This is experienced by neuroinflammation via insufficient digestive capacity, as well as dysbiosis and intestinal infections that interrupt a proper immunological response to foods. As we lose oral tolerance we will oftentimes find ourselves at odds against a variety of foods. Suddenly what was once healthy foods now have become inflammatory foods that lead to poor mental function. I apologize for the audio quality, I will eventually figure this out. Just gotta move forward and get content out there. Cheers, Brandon A. Trean BCTMB, HHP, NC

Carnivore Diet Gut Healing Journey With CBD/THC Discovery on Oral Tolerance #0006
In this episode I discuss some of the journey towards reversing a sustained disease process in the gut and my attempt to increase oral tolerance. The CBD/THC Synergy Skin Worx patches seem to be blunting the mast-cell activation response which has increased oral tolerance towards a variety of foods. I am able to eat more ingredients right now then I have in over 4 and half years. This is all very surreal and I remain optimistic that this will remain so long as patches remain on. The plantain chips messed me up a bit as well, but mildly compared to the garlic. I did not comment in this podcast but I was able to drink a specific company's wine as well but I will cover that in another podcast. * Carnivore diet raw/blue steaks * Synergy Skin Worx High CBD Transdermal patches (cut in half) * Reintroducing foods (Honey Mama Chocolate, avocado, sushi, variety of probiotic-rich low-sugar drinks) * Garlic (bio-film busting agent messed me up hardcore) See the above link for some science behind marijuana use and interrupting the mast-cell response. P.S. For what it's worth, these patches have 63mg of CBD and only 3mg of THC. Cheers everyone ^_^. Brandon A. Trean BCTMB, HHP, NC

Reconnecting With Your Breath/Nervous System #0005
In this short-form episode I bring up the importance of reconnecting with nature and the breath. The nervous system works in a binary sense, it is either in a sympathetic nervous system response or it is in a parasympathetic nervous system response. One is a fight or flight response and the other a rest and digest response. Also, within a parasympathetic nervous system response you get a up-regulation in detox pathways. Here’s to keeping neuroregenerative practices abundant in our day to day so we can embrace the day with vitality.

Disease As A Journey Plus Tangent Thinking #0004
In this episode I talk about a narrative change on sustained illness. The importance of becoming an alchemist so as to transmute your past or present pain/suffering into something of prosperity for all. Also a big thank you to my first paid supporter ^o^. I greatly appreciate it and while the audio quality needs a lot of work rest assured I will be upgrading it by the time 2019 rolls around or sooner ^_^.

Carnivore Supplementation: Non-Dogmatic Carnivore Tips #0002
How I finally gained some weight with supplementation combined with carnivore diets.

How cooked protein can create symptoms of toxicity. And more in this near 15 min podcast illustrating my concerns with the current carnivore movement, and how to address those concerns with targets labs and solutions. The product I cued into is called Glutagenics which contains DGL, Aloe, and Glutamine by Metagenics. This helped with when I went too far with the Betaine HCL w/ Pepsin.

Tea Ceremony: Gratitudes Impact on Biology #0001
Conclusion: Tea treated with good intentions improved mood more than ordinary tea derived from the same source. Belief that one was drinking treated tea produced a large improvement in mood, but only if one was actually drinking the treated tea, indicating that belief and intentional enhancement interact. This also suggests that the esthetic and intentional qualities associated with the traditional tea ceremony may have subtle influences that extend beyond the ritual itself.
