01:12 Hi, friends, and welcome to another edition
01:14 of NEWSTART Now.
01:16 I'm your host Ron Giannoni.
01:18 In our studio is with me, we have a lovely young lady
01:21 from Seattle, Washington, Jeanette Spreadborough.
01:26 And I'd like to take a look at when she first arrived.
01:31 I went to camp meeting this year, and I was inspired
01:35 by the talk about the power of prayer.
01:37 So I said a prayer to the Lord, I said, you know,
01:39 "Dear Lord, I've gained weight, I've got some ailments,
01:44 some rheumatoid arthritis, and I want to be healthy,"
01:48 and so I prayed about it.
01:50 And within a week, I got a text message from this lady
01:54 that I had just met about a month ago, and she goes,
01:56 "Do you want to go to Weimar?"
01:58 And I was like, "Oh, the Lord wants me to go to Weimar,
02:01 this is how..."
02:02 I was like...
02:04 and then I was able to get the time off from work
02:06 'cause I was already scheduled to work during this month
02:09 and they gave me time off
02:10 and I was able to get a scholarship,
02:12 some other families and church members helped me,
02:16 my husband's off-work.
02:17 So it was just like the Lord made it happen.
02:20 So here I am, and I'm so happy to be here.
02:22 So my ailments, I was diagnosed back in 2005
02:26 with rheumatoid arthritis.
02:28 It stays in remission so I take a medication
02:32 called HUMIRA and it's a sub-q injection.
02:35 But I do get fatigued and I work fulltime
02:39 as a registered nurse on ICU units,
02:41 so I'm under a lot of stress.
02:43 What I would like to get out of the NEWSTART program
02:46 is to get a newly sound life,
02:48 I'd like to not have to take my HUMIRA
02:51 and not have the aches and pains of the rheumatoid.
02:53 I'd like to gain the knowledge so I can share it with others
02:57 and be a light for the Lord and to be an example
03:00 of what a healthy lifestyle is.
03:04 So I'm hoping that the cyst in my liver that
03:07 that will shrink and also I'm hoping
03:11 that my liver enzymes are lower,
03:14 they take a little bump, not real high
03:17 but enough to make me concerned.
03:19 So I'm just hoping to just gain my health
03:21 and so that I can live a strong healthy life
03:24 and be an example for others
03:26 and share the knowledge that I gain from here.
03:33 Welcome back, friends. In our studio, Jeanette.
03:35 Good to see you. Thank you.
03:37 It's good to see less of you. Yes, me too.
03:40 Yes, I'm happy for that.
03:42 Tell me, let's start off that
03:43 'cause I know that's one of the issues.
03:45 You came here, you want to lose some weight.
03:47 Yes. Why?
03:49 Well, I've gained like
03:51 50 pounds over the last couple years
03:54 and just was concerned about that.
03:56 How did that happen?
03:58 Stress. And?
04:00 Poor eating habits and I needed...
04:03 Comfort foods? Comfort foods.
04:04 Like ice cream? Like ice cream, yes.
04:06 Comfort foods...
04:07 I had to pry that out of you. I know.
04:09 Yes, it was definitely comfort foods.
04:11 I would look for that quick side of,
04:14 you know, gratification.
04:15 Oh, sure.
04:17 I work, I've a really busy position
04:19 in an ICU unit as a...
04:21 I'm a nurse.
04:23 So I'm even aware about the health effects
04:24 but not as much, I really was educated
04:26 since I've been here.
04:28 Yeah, you are.
04:29 You think you know a lot but, you know,
04:31 I'm a nurse and I learnt so much about nutrition.
04:33 You didn't know anything?
04:35 Yes, I learnt that I didn't know
04:37 as much as I thought I did.
04:38 Well, the kind of work you do is different
04:42 than what we teach here obviously.
04:44 Oh, definitely.
04:45 And that's what you're speaking about
04:47 and I know that nurses,
04:49 especially your kind of nursing,
04:51 you're highly educated in that field.
04:54 However, this is a new type of field for you.
04:57 Yes, this is.
04:58 And ironically, I work on open heart unit.
05:01 Oh, wow.
05:03 So I've worked in a cardiac cath lab.
05:04 So, you know, I see the patients that come in
05:08 that have these heart blocks and they have to have stents
05:12 or they are not candidates to have stents
05:14 because there's so much blockage and heart disease.
05:16 And, you know, our surgeons, trauma surgeons take them
05:21 to do open heart, and then they come back to my ICU,
05:24 and we help care for them.
05:26 So yeah, so I was like, "I don't want to be a patient,
05:30 I want to be healthy."
05:32 So when I learned about this program
05:34 and knowing about
05:37 'cause my cholesterol levels were going up.
05:41 And I was like, "Oh, I need to cure this."
05:45 And so how much weight have you lost here
05:47 in last 17-16 days?
05:48 I've lost a good solid 10 pounds.
05:51 When they first weighed me, they said...
05:53 On the chart, it shows seven but I know that
05:55 when I first came, I weighed myself.
05:56 That was one of the first things I did
05:58 and I'm down seven pounds.
06:00 How much muscle have you gained?
06:02 Oh, I've gained a lot of muscle.
06:03 Yeah, so muscle weighs too. Right, right.
06:06 So you've lost more fat... I have.
06:08 Than you're really giving credit to.
06:10 Yes, in fact today, they did my circumference
06:12 and I'm down four inches around my waist.
06:16 So it's easier like to bend over.
06:19 So yes, I'm just like...
06:21 And the trails was like
06:22 I've been hiking all the trails,
06:24 and when I first got here, I had to stop on the inclined,
06:28 you know, going up.
06:29 I couldn't do it without getting short of breath
06:31 and just be like, "Okay, I got to wait
06:33 and get my energy back up."
06:34 Now I'm just climbing all over and, you know,
06:37 my endurance has really increased.
06:38 How many miles a day are you walking?
06:40 I average, I'm saying I go about six miles,
06:43 I got my little Fitbit.
06:45 Oh, amazing. It's amazing.
06:46 Oh, you do? Yes.
06:48 Oh, you like that little Fitbit?
06:49 I like it 'cause you can have competition
06:50 with my daughters on it.
06:53 So you can... But it keeps you motivated.
06:56 And yeah, so...
06:58 You got a little plug for Fitbit.
06:59 Yeah, yeah.
07:01 It's actually, it's an incentive.
07:05 And it helps you keep track of your calories
07:07 and also it tracks your heart rate
07:11 and so my heart rate,
07:12 my resting heart rate used to be in the 70s.
07:15 While I'm sitting in the meetings,
07:17 I'm all relaxed,
07:18 I'm learning all this information,
07:19 I look and I'm down in the low 60s
07:21 for my resting heart rate.
07:22 Just sitting, not sleeping, not just when I first get up.
07:25 But sitting actively, participating, and watching,
07:28 and my resting heart rate is in the 60s
07:29 without a beta blocker.
07:31 Isn't that amazing? It's amazing.
07:32 So I know that my health is just improving.
07:35 And it gets better. It gets better.
07:37 I was sitting couple of weeks ago
07:39 I so want to take my blood pressure,
07:42 I don't usually, but I felt yeah okay,
07:44 looks like 112/60, I use to have like 200/100.
07:50 Yeah. My resting pulse was like 54.
07:53 Wow, that's wonderful. That's just amazing for me.
07:58 Nonetheless, we're talking about you.
07:59 Yeah no, but that's amazing 'cause you're not
08:01 on any medicine and that's amazing.
08:02 None. Yeah.
08:04 Like you I got off all my medication
08:06 when I came here.
08:09 But you had another very interesting thing
08:12 happened to you while you were here.
08:13 You came here, you were taking arthritis meds.
08:18 On a weekly basis, and they would...
08:21 Tell us a little bit about what happened.
08:23 So back in 2005, I was diagnosed
08:28 with rheumatoid arthritis, interestingly enough,
08:32 during that time, I had done another diet
08:35 that promotes low carbs, high protein.
08:40 Oh, no. And it was the Atkins diet.
08:42 Oh, no. I did do that.
08:44 And it was that year that I came down with arthritis.
08:48 So the correlation plus a lot of stress
08:51 'cause once again I was working in neurotrauma ICU,
08:53 working night shifts.
08:55 So I had lot of strikes to get me.
08:57 I was in night shift, they were 12-14-hour shifts,
09:01 I was committing it and having to sleep
09:03 during the day against my circadian rhythm,
09:05 plus I was doing a low-carb diet.
09:08 And I lost weight with it, I lost like 20 pounds.
09:10 Oh yeah, oh yeah, it works.
09:12 I did it just before I had open heart surgery.
09:15 So yeah...
09:17 Did you catch that?
09:18 Yeah, open heart surgery, yes. Yeah.
09:21 So that high protein and fat, it's no good.
09:24 By the way that doctor died from heart attack.
09:28 Nonetheless, the arthritis, did you know back then
09:34 what was causing the pain?
09:37 No, I didn't know what was causing the pain
09:39 but I was in so much pain, I couldn't even...
09:43 and I'm like, I consider myself young,
09:47 and I couldn't bend over and tie my shoes.
09:48 By the way, I consider you young.
09:50 Yeah, I was like I couldn't, you know...
09:52 I was in my late 30s, I wasn't even 40
09:55 and I couldn't even tie my shoes, I couldn't...
09:58 My knees were so sore,
09:59 all of my joints were just inflamed.
10:02 What did you discover while you were here
10:04 about inflammation?
10:06 I discovered that the cholesterol
10:08 from the meat products, anything that has a face,
10:13 or a mother that has a face contributes
10:15 to that inflammation process.
10:17 And the inflammation is what causes what?
10:19 The autoimmune that it can contribute
10:22 to the autoimmune diseases.
10:23 And so now that you've changed your lifestyle, anymore pain?
10:28 I've no pain, in fact, I'm amazed
10:32 because I haven't taken my...
10:35 So there was two types, I used to take ENBREL,
10:37 it was once a week.
10:38 But now, I'm taking HUMIRA
10:40 which is a tumor necrotic factor,
10:42 protein receptor I believe.
10:43 And not only is it very expensive
10:47 but you have to give yourself an injection
10:48 and I'm just going to talk to my rheumatologist
10:51 but I'm feeling like my body is going into just changing
10:56 and not going to need to have that medication.
10:59 I'm not having any pain and normally by this time
11:01 my feet start aching and I'm over a week
11:05 since my last, since I'm due for it.
11:07 So I'm excited to have them run the labs
11:12 because normally when somebody with RA,
11:14 I believe they have like an elevation of the TNF factor
11:18 which is Tumor necrotic factor.
11:20 So those are kind of marker, so I'm looking forward
11:23 to staying very faithful to my new lifestyle, you know,
11:28 eating a plant-based diet, exercise, lots of water,
11:32 and getting that good sleep.
11:35 And not being stressed out,
11:36 and to say my prayers to the Lord,
11:38 and get it up to Him because He brought me here,
11:40 and He has plans for me.
11:42 And I'm looking forward to following up on you,
11:45 and I want to thank you, we've run out of time.
11:47 Okay. God bless you.
11:49 Oh, thank you. We'll be in touch.
11:51 But, friends, don't go away
11:53 'cause the doctor will be right with us.
11:55 When we look at the health status
11:57 of Americans today, it's alarming to see
11:59 that 60% are either overweight or obese.
12:08 In addition, diseases such as Type 2 diabetes,
12:11 cancer, and heart disorders are the leading cause
12:13 of so many complications and deaths every year.
12:21 Could it have something to do with what we eat?
12:23 After all, every one in four Americans
12:26 visits a fast food restaurant daily,
12:28 and with such easy access to quick-fix foods,
12:32 we tend to forget the poor health value
12:34 those foods actually offer.
12:37 Maybe it's the sedentary lifestyle
12:38 and lack of exercise that we've become
12:40 so accustomed to as a media-dependant world.
12:44 Whatever the cause of these diseases,
12:46 a solution has arrived.
12:50 The NEWSTART lifestyle center offers
12:52 an enriching program where patients can get
12:54 a healing of mind, body, and soul,
12:57 located in the outskirts of Sacramento,
13:00 the NEWSTART center is situated on the beautiful campus
13:03 of Weimar Centre of Health and Education
13:06 with scenic walking and hiking trails all around.
13:09 With a "whole plant foods eating whole" motto,
13:13 the NEWSTART center promotes a healthy plant-based diet
13:16 with an emphasis on natural foods.
13:18 The NEWSTART staff are made up of California Board Certified
13:22 nurses, doctors, dietitians, and therapists
13:26 who work together to assist each patient personally.
13:29 The staff are dedicated to each patient's success
13:32 in the program and are always there
13:34 to guide, advise, and encourage.
13:37 In addition to a healthy lifestyle,
13:39 NEWSTART also promotes a healthy exercise routine.
13:42 You're both in sequence, that's good, all right.
13:45 As part of the balance program, there's much opportunity
13:48 to get in the fair share of physical activity
13:51 from utilizing our fitness center
13:53 to taking a stroll around the peaceful grounds of Weimar.
13:56 It's amazing what a new start can do for you.
14:02 Welcome back, friends. Dr. Gallant.
14:05 Ron, good to see you my friend. Good to see you.
14:07 You know, it's been a while since I've actually told folks
14:12 who exactly you are,
14:13 you're the director of the clinic now, right?
14:16 I'm actually the medical director
14:18 for NEWSTART
14:20 and one the physicians in the clinic.
14:21 Yes, right. Yeah, that's right.
14:23 And we're really proud that you are here.
14:25 Well, praise the Lord, I'm glad to be here.
14:27 I hear nothing but good things about you.
14:29 Well, God is good.
14:31 God is good, and the guests are real pleased
14:34 with the treatments and, you know,
14:37 the non-invasive treatments especially.
14:40 And, you know, let's talk about Jeanette if we can.
14:45 And tell us, you know,
14:47 she was a delight during our interview.
14:50 And she's made a lot of progression.
14:52 She is pretty smart. Oh yes, she is.
14:54 She is an ICU nurse. Yes.
14:56 They have to be sharp
14:57 and they have to be independent thinkers
15:00 to be able to sometimes manage those acute care situations.
15:06 But she is wonderful lady, wonderful.
15:08 So we've seen some progress.
15:12 Tell us from a doctor's perspective
15:14 what do you think is going on.
15:16 Well, she has a history of Rheumatoid arthritis
15:18 and has had a lot of aches and pains,
15:22 especially in her hands.
15:24 And since coming here,
15:26 she noticed that her inflammation has decreased
15:30 and she is feeling a lot better,
15:32 really has not had a flare of rheumatoid arthritis
15:35 since she came here.
15:37 And as, you know, our lifestyle and diet
15:40 is a low inflammation lifestyle.
15:44 And so if we can decrease her inflammation,
15:46 we're going to decrease our things like
15:49 rheumatoid arthritis, other diseases as well.
15:51 Now this is a message that I think our guests
15:53 that are watching really need to hear that.
15:57 I've been told and you could correct me I'm sure
16:01 that most lifestyle diseases are from inflammation
16:06 generally caused by what we eating,
16:09 what we're putting in our body, correct?
16:11 And also how we live, you know,
16:14 inflammation impacts all of our body.
16:17 It creates what we call oxidative stress.
16:20 And oxidative stress impacts the function
16:23 of our immune system.
16:25 If our immune system is not functioning properly,
16:28 we're more prone to infection, bacterial,
16:32 viral, fungal infections, all of those.
16:35 And then if our immune system is not functioning properly,
16:38 it may make us prone to autoimmune type diseases
16:41 where our body starts to attack itself.
16:44 And if our immune system is not functioning properly,
16:47 we're at increased risk
16:48 for all kinds of other ailments,
16:50 all kinds of other little things.
16:53 Cancer is one of the things that can hide sometimes
16:56 when we have increased inflammation
16:58 in our body.
16:59 They hide, they clothe themselves
17:00 I understand.
17:02 That's exactly right.
17:03 They clothe themselves to prevent our immune system
17:05 from recognizing.
17:06 Isn't that amazing? It is. It is.
17:08 Yeah and because we change our lifestyle,
17:10 and we reduce the stress, and we're eating these plants
17:15 and all of a sudden, the killer cells...
17:18 The natural killer cells get boosted.
17:20 You know, this is fascinating since you brought this up.
17:23 One of the things that happens
17:25 is when we're on an animal protein diet,
17:28 the cancer cells can use that animal protein
17:32 to coat themselves and there by hide.
17:36 And some of the digestive enzymes
17:38 our bodies use to kill cancer cells
17:43 get used up in digesting the protein
17:46 and the meat that we eat.
17:47 Isn't that interesting.
17:49 So it's a double whammy. Yeah.
17:51 Whereas when you're on a plant-based diet,
17:54 you actually are able to strengthen your immune system.
17:59 So it'll work better, it'll pick up on things better
18:02 and it will help to destroy things like cancer
18:06 and other sources of inflammation.
18:08 We know...
18:10 She had mentioned, Jeanette had mentioned
18:12 her arthritis seemed to...
18:16 no pain.
18:19 And she is lost some weight, and are there any other issues
18:22 that she was dealing with it?
18:23 You know, one of the interesting things,
18:26 she is on shots for her rheumatoid arthritis
18:30 and was getting them about every two weeks.
18:33 She has been with us for little over two weeks
18:35 and had a shot before she came and has not had a flare up.
18:39 So we're recommending that we start to space
18:42 those shots out farther and farther.
18:44 And who knows, by God's grace, may be over time
18:46 she will be able to get off of that medicine.
18:48 Wouldn't that be a blessing?
18:50 That would be a tremendous blessing.
18:52 Looks like she is heading in that direction.
18:55 It looks that way. And she is totally onboard.
18:57 Oh yeah, oh yeah, she is excited.
18:59 And her husband at home, she's been sharing information
19:02 with him, and he is excited and onboard as well.
19:05 Oh, that's a blessing.
19:07 That means, you know,
19:08 that makes all the difference in the world.
19:09 When you have support of family,
19:11 it makes you so much more successful.
19:13 You know, you've bring up a good point.
19:15 If there are people watching and they are going to come
19:18 to the NEWSTART program,
19:20 don't you think it's really important
19:22 that they bring their significant other,
19:24 be it their husband, wife, child, or mother
19:29 because if I had to go home and explain to my wife
19:33 what I learned here in 18 days, I couldn't have done it.
19:36 It's hard.
19:38 I don't know that I would have succeeded
19:39 as well as I have.
19:42 You know, when we made our lifestyle change,
19:43 we did it as a family.
19:45 And it makes it so much easier, you support each other,
19:49 and besides that, you also hold each other accountable,
19:52 and that goes a long way to success.
19:54 Yes, it does. "Ah, shouldn't eat that."
19:56 Yeah, exactly.
19:57 We had a guest over for lunch one day and he said,
20:00 "What's in that dressing?"
20:02 And he had only been here a week,
20:05 you know who I'm talking about?
20:06 Yeah, Harry.
20:09 And he, "What's in there, I can't eat that.
20:11 No, is that real cheese?"
20:12 I said, "Come on, this is all vegan."
20:14 That's right. But he was testing us.
20:17 What showed me that he is listening as, you know,
20:22 all our guests listen and they learn and in fact,
20:26 Jeanette was sharing how much she has learnt
20:29 even though she is in the business.
20:33 She is not a doctor obviously but she is a nurse.
20:35 No, very knowledgeable nurse.
20:37 Very, very knowledgeable.
20:38 But she learned a lot by attending the lectures here.
20:42 Praise God. Yeah, amen.
20:43 Praise God.
20:45 Anything that you might add to that?
20:48 You know, I would just say this that people
20:52 who make lifestyle change reap so many benefits.
20:57 Some of them are things that we expect
20:59 but some of them are things that we don't expect.
21:02 She has bubbly personality to begin with,
21:05 but she is so excited about where she is now
21:08 compared to where she was when she first came
21:10 that I really think this excitement
21:14 and enthusiasm is going to be contagious.
21:16 And she's going to be able to tell others
21:18 some of the things that she has learned.
21:20 Yeah. She is rather bubbly.
21:23 Oh yes, she is. She is a wonderful person.
21:25 She was real excited about losing several inches
21:29 in her waist and hips, and...
21:30 In fact, I think she lost over five inches in her waist.
21:33 Yeah. Which is fantastic.
21:35 Yeah. Yeah.
21:37 That's excellent.
21:38 And, you know, these nurses, they have these 12-hour shifts,
21:42 and they got to eat on the run, and they grab something
21:45 in the cafeteria which probably shouldn't be fed to anybody.
21:49 Nonetheless, doc, I want to thank you again
21:52 for taking your time.
21:54 Thank you.
21:55 It's always a pleasure to have you here.
21:56 Likewise, likewise.
21:58 And, friends, it's a pleasure having you here too,
22:00 but don't go away, we have an important message
22:02 following this.
22:06 Caffeine is the world's most popular drug.
22:09 You can find a Starbucks on almost every corner.
22:12 Recent statistics show
22:14 that 83 percent of American adults
22:16 consume coffee, three cups a day on average.
22:19 But what exactly is caffeine
22:21 and how does it affect our bodies?
22:24 Caffeine is known as an energy booster.
22:26 Many people claim that they need coffee
22:28 to improve their focus, stamina, and productivity.
22:31 And several studies seem to support these claims.
22:34 There's just one problem.
22:35 Many studies have used faulty methods failing
22:38 to account the caffeine habits of their participants.
22:41 One study performed
22:42 by John Hopkins Medical School reveals
22:44 that the performance boost of the caffeine only occurs
22:47 in people who are already experiencing
22:49 withdrawals from it.
22:51 This is not a result of caffeine
22:52 truly increasing performance
22:54 but rather a short term reversal
22:56 of caffeine withdrawal.
22:58 When researchers choose participants
23:00 who are not experiencing withdrawal,
23:02 caffeine did not improve performance.
23:05 And one of the things we find with caffeine
23:08 is that even though people seem to be able to do things fast
23:12 and for a longer period of time,
23:14 it's not uncommon that they make more mistakes.
23:17 They've even had notes about the sports teams
23:21 and so they want them to have more energy,
23:23 they give them...
23:25 So they have them take sports drinks
23:26 or probably just containing caffeine
23:29 and they do have more energy
23:30 but they make more mistakes and errors.
23:32 This is also been shown like in people type,
23:35 they can type faster but they make more mistakes.
23:38 So all in all, you're going to be much better off
23:40 not using caffeine.
23:43 Caffeine is a stimulant.
23:44 The chemical name is trimethylxanthine.
23:47 It speeds up the heart rate, increases the blood pressure
23:50 'cause it causes vessel constriction
23:52 which is making the blood vessels smaller.
23:56 And it's very interesting,
23:57 many patients who I've worked with,
24:00 who have high blood pressure and I asked them,
24:02 "Do use coffee or tea?"
24:03 which of course the traditional coffee, tea,
24:06 both contain caffeine and they say,
24:08 "Yes." I said, "Hasn't anyone told you
24:10 that it would be helpful for you
24:12 to control your blood pressure to stop the caffeine?"
24:15 So this is another common effective caffeine,
24:19 it raises the blood pressure as well as...
24:22 as we mentioned increase in the gastric secretions.
24:25 So if people have trouble with ulcers,
24:28 gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD,
24:31 again they are going to be better off
24:32 to avoid beverages containing caffeine.
24:35 High caffeine consumption is associated
24:38 with many negative symptoms
24:39 including irritability, insomnia, anxiety,
24:43 stress on the heart, elevated blood pressure,
24:46 headaches, heartburn, upset stomach, and dehydration.
24:51 Many people use caffeine to stay awake.
24:54 This may work temporarily but in the long run,
24:56 caffeine causes serious sleep disturbances.
25:00 It makes it more difficult to fall and stay asleep,
25:02 and disturbs the important REM phase of the sleep cycle.
25:06 Caffeine users often fall in to vicious cycle,
25:09 the same caffeine they depend on to wake up in the morning
25:12 keeps them from getting quality sleep at night.
25:15 One of the things we look at with caffeine
25:16 is what we call the half-life of caffeine,
25:19 and the half-life of caffeine is between four and five hours.
25:23 Now as you take a dose of caffeine in the morning
25:25 say at 8 o'clock, you know, to wake up
25:30 and in four hours half of that will be gone,
25:34 and in another four hours half of what's left would be gone.
25:36 So even though people may only take one or two cups
25:40 of coffee in the morning,
25:41 the effects of that last throughout the day.
25:43 And if people have trouble with sleep,
25:46 they definitely should avoid beverages
25:48 containing caffeine.
25:49 If you're using coffee to wake you up,
25:51 an alternative to coffee would be exercise,
25:54 that would be really good.
25:56 Also good brisk shower finishing off
25:59 with cold would help you wake you up.
26:01 Caffeine is especially dangerous for children,
26:04 infants, and pregnant mothers.
26:06 It has been linked to low birth weight
26:08 as well as a variety of health and behavioral problems.
26:11 I would not encourage children use caffeine,
26:14 again, it's a stimulant.
26:16 And I remember when I was working
26:17 in the Marshall Islands, I would see
26:19 these little children probably one to two years of age,
26:24 they would be running around and they would have
26:26 a can of caffeinated soda pop in their hand
26:29 and they would be drinking that.
26:31 And sometimes later on in the evening
26:34 when I would have to go back to the hospital late at night
26:37 to see a patient, I would see these little kids
26:41 running around wide awake,
26:43 they were wide from the caffeine
26:45 which they had earlier in the day.
26:46 So if you want your children to be nice and cooperative
26:50 and raise them so that they will be obedient,
26:53 and loving, and responsive,
26:56 you really want to keep them away
26:57 from caffeine.
26:59 So be safe, treat your body right
27:01 and fill yourself with plenty of good old fashioned water,
27:05 which naturally increases brain function and energy.
27:09 Your body, mood, and pocketbook will thank you.
