Q&A Marathon Part 2: July 19, 2016

Question : Aloha Dr. G.  2 AM here in Hawaii! My dad has some questions about a few things.  He is on protocol for kidney failure (HBSP, Ult Daily Classic, selenium, niacin, and Good Herbs Heart Support).  I just learned that his MD prescribed sodium bicarbonate, telling him it would prolong ability to delay dialysis.  He is also on thyroxine and has low blood pressure.  Someone told him the selenium was responsible for blood pressure issue.  He is 92 years old and willing to try a better approach.

Question : If taking the calcium before bed w/a little citric, will that interfere w/the Nightly Essence?

When fasting, can you do a protein drink, or is that considered food?  

I’m gluten-free (not celiac), and I can’t ‘see’ the gluten in beer, so why can’t I drink a gluten beer.  It’s liquid…..passes right thru, right?  

Trying to find out how many phytates are in coffee to be sure to drink it when not have my BTT.  Is it a problem to drink coffee and BTT about the same time?

Question : My 5.5 year old grandson weighs 48# and was born at 23 weeks weighing 1# 6oz. He had a PDA ligation at 10 days and as a result the laryneal nerve was damaged. As far as we know there is blood flow and the cord is in tact. There is no cord movement on the left. Is it possible to regenerate nerve conduction? What would the protocal be for a 5 year old?

Now have Charcot foot and have been in a foot cast for 3 months. Will get it removed in 2 weeks only to be put into a walking boot for the rest of my life. Any suggestions?

Sister age 60 with breast cancer.  Got her a starter pack with selenium and minerals.  You had commented that you don't recommend calcium for lung cancer.  Is this true for breast cancer as well?  Is Vitamin C ok?  Also she would like to know if shiitake mushrooms and modified citrus pectin are beneficial?

Hi Dr. Glidden, how are you! It's Adrienne from Richmond Hill, Ontario. I have been listening to you for over a year. Love your work, thank you so much, I'm very grateful! I have a friend who is around 48 years old, 165 lbs, 5'5". She is scheduled for Thyroid removal surgery soon as she has many, many large nodules on her Thyroid, which the MDs diagnosed as Hashimoto's disease. She has a noticeable Goiter. She is on Synthroid 1.25. I think she has been on some Thyroid medication since the age 16. She also has Sarcoidosis in her lungs - nodules enlarged in her lungs which they said is also autoimmune. She also has some bones and joints issues. Her diet includes gluten and she gets bloated. She also has thinning hair. Should she cancel this Thyroid removal surgery, and what can we do to help her please on a tight budget. Can her Thyroid ever return to normal size? Should she be avoiding cruciferous vegetables? She is also considering Chelation therapy, is that a good idea?

Question : Question to follow.

Christine Crockett from Toronto Canada and no I'm not married to Davy..lol.  I've been gradually converting my family and friends to adopt a Youngevity inspired lifestyle!  Yay!  A good friend of mine needs to lose weight and feel she's a little desperate.   She just started to take what's called Optifast shakes with the following ingredients below.  I noticed that it's full of corn oil, aspartame and a few other unfriendly ingredients.  I politely mentioned this to her and she passed it off as no big deal even though she's spending 500/month on this.  She has lost weightfrom this product as well.  She is open minded & wondered if there's anything from Pubmed or whatnot I could share with her to change her mind towards Youngevity?  I'd love to have something bold to tell her.  

I'm looking forward to your new email advocate platform to share your webinars with others!  I watched the one you did on obesity and feel she needs to watch it.  I suggested the 2$2/2 days but knowing she's busy she's more likely to open it as an email than log on to the site.  Thank you so much for your time!!!

Two weeks ago, I got up in the morning with pain went to the restroom and there is lots of blood in my urine, almost like a menstrual cycle. I have not had a period since 2006.

Then Thursday evening I started bleeding again.  My urine us dark yellow again & the stomach pain has returned. Also I am coughing up blood in the mornings & having bleeding nose discharge   More than usual.

Question : Dr Glidden

I have high blood pressure and type 1 diabetes (insulin depended). When my blood pressure is high I drink a table spoon of crushed turmeric with juice and within an hour my pressure will come down from 160/110 to 140/80. However after an hour it rises again. As you know the turmeric causes diarrhea. My question is why does the turmeric work and what is that indication of.  Secondly, is there something better I can take thru the day to correct this problem and keep my pressure low? When I walk for exercise I notice that my fingers swell. However if I raise my hands higher than my head. It appears that my hands drain and not swollen anymore.   What is this a sign of? I'm 61 years old and 185lbs

Question : Dr. G-Dawg! This is Epic! I attended your last Marathon. I love it. Do you think that any darkening of the skin due to sun exposure is a negative? Is some darkening beneficial? Do you think it is irrelevant as long as you are not sun burning?


Dr. G! I am your wayward son! I took your advice, and had my first cranial-sacral chiropractic adjustment to address tinnitus. VERY INTERESTING! Any Good-Herbs add-on for tinnitus? Wondering if you are familiar with NSA-Network Spinal Analysis?My chiropractor is a practitioner of NSA and I am a big fan. Thanks for all you do.

Question : I take BTT, Plant Derived Minerals and Osteo FX before meals.  Do I take EFA, Gluco Gel, Selenium, Sweeteze at this time or do I take them with meals?

Question : Have you noticed lately there are lots of people with Vertigo symptoms?  I'm hearing people daily saying they are dizzy?  Do you think there is something new being released into the air or something else going on.  A lot of these people are already on Youngevity products.  Thank you for doing this very long day for us.
