Simon started running at school and joined his local club (Tamworth AC) at the age of 12 and went on to run for one of the top clubs in the country Birchfield Harriers when he was 25 for a few years until he did a triathlon with work in 2007 and then from that entering some local duathlons. Simon has done a few Ironman races too including Bolton, Tenby, and Zurich.Simon started to take duathlon more seriously in 2016 paying for his British Triathlon membership and doing his first qualification race at Clumber Park.Simon had some good results with 12th and 14th at Worlds and a 10th at the Europeans.At this time he was competing and training with Colitis, lifestyle changes since have seen a huge improvement and he hasntt had a flare-up for a few years now.Turning 40Simon became vegetarian and got a strength and conditioning coach and also started his Project 1660 to run a sub-16-minute 5k and a sub-60-minute 25-mile time trial to help with  duathlons. he has  since done Project 3455 (sub 34 min 10k and sub 55min 25-mile TT) and this year he is  doing Project 1620 (sub 16min 5k and sub 20minute TT). The aim of these projects is to give him a focus outside of the duathlon to push himself, which has really helped him,  as Simon spent a few years shying away from racing except for duathlon qualification races and championships.

Description: Co-hosts Ryan Piansky and Holly Knotowicz talk with guest Nicole Arva, MD, PhD, about genetics and eosinophilic colitis. Dr. Arva is a pediatric pathologist at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago. She is also an Associate Professor in the Department of Pathology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. She has been a part of more than 50 publications, many of which explore eosinophilic diseases, and recently co-authored a manuscript entitled “Genetics of Eosinophilic Colitis Revealed.” In this episode, Holly and Ryan discuss with Dr. Arva her recent and upcoming research. They cover the purposes of molecular testing and a new molecular study that concludes that EoC is a unique disease, with specific genetic characteristics that set it apart from other EGIDs, Crohn's disease, and IBD. Dr. Arva explains how that uniqueness was discovered, and what it means for therapeutic options for EoC. Listen in to learn about this innovative research.

Opinions, information, and recommendations shared in this podcast are not a substitute for medical advice. Decisions related to medical care should be made with your healthcare provider. Opinions and views of guests and co-hosts are their own.   Key Takeaways: [1:44] Holly shares the topic of this episode, genetics and eosinophilic colitis (EoC), and introduces today's guest, Dr. Nicole Arva. [1:51] Dr. Nicole Arva is a Pediatric Pathologist at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago and an Associate Professor in the Department of Pathology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. [2:37] Dr. Arva wanted to understand the mechanisms of diseases to be able to treat them more efficiently. She tells of her professional journey after medical school, studying cancer and leukemia cell lines. She continued her medical training in pathology, specializing in pediatric pathology. [3:15] Dr. Arva's work involves assessing laboratory slides from pediatric tissue samples to establish a diagnosis.  [4:05] Dr. Arva explains molecular testing. An increasing number of diseases are found to have genetic abnormalities. Molecular testing can help lead to an accurate diagnosis. Dr. Arva describes getting a tumor diagnosis from molecular testing showing specific chromosomal translocations in correlation with microscopic examination. [5:23] By performing molecular testing, we can discover gene alterations that can help guide the development of new therapies. Molecular testing can uncover genes that can be targeted. [5:51] Genetic analysis can also provide insight into how a disease develops and shed light on the pathways that are involved. [6:35] Dr. Arva describes EoC. EoC affects the large bowel. Eosinophils cause inflammation in the colon. Patients usually have abdominal pain, diarrhea, which can be bloody, and fluid in the abdominal cavity. Patients can become malnourished. They may develop a bowel obstruction or perforation. [7:25] Studies have been performed on Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disorders (EGIDs) and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). But EoC is a poorly understood condition. When Dr. Arva and her colleagues started their study, they didn't know whether EoC should be considered to be within the spectrum of EGIDs or as an IBD. [8:03] The research team was looking to determine where EoC belongs because that would affect the way patients would be treated. Although EoC is similar to other EGIDs because eosinophils drive the inflammation,, EoC has a lower incidence than EGIDs, more severe symptoms, and co-morbidities. [8:38] EoC is similar to IBDs in that it is an inflammation of the large bowel, but a different type of cell is predominantly involved in IBD (neutrophil) with some eosinophils present.  [9:38] The diagnosis of EoC is challenging. Other, more common conditions can cause colonic eosinophilic inflammation.  When pathologists encounter eosinophilia in the large bowel, they have to think of other medical conditions that can cause that. A diagnosis of EoC is established only after other causes of gastrointestinal eosinophilia have been ruled out. [10:14] IBD, intestinal parasites, autoimmune or connective tissue disorders, and vasculitis can all mimic EoC. Certain medicines can induce eosinophilia. Eosinophils are normally found in the large bowel. [10:51] Pathologists have to establish eosinophil count values for each segment of the large bowel to best evaluate colonic biopsy; everybody needs to follow the standards when diagnosing EoC. [11:42] Patients suspected to have EoC may undergo lab testing, imaging, and colonoscopy to reach a diagnosis. The findings may vary, depending on which section of the bowel wall is infiltrated by eosinophils. [13:02] A biopsy may reveal an increased number of eosinophils. All these test results have to be combined to reach a diagnosis of EoC. [13:27] The focus of the study was performing molecular testing that was very helpful in diagnosing EoC. They found that nearly 1,000 genes were differentially expressed in EoC compared to normal participants or Crohn's disease subjects.  [14:30]  They found differences in gene expression between EoC and other types of EGIDs, such as eosinophilic esophagitis or gastritis. [15:02] The main chemotactic factor in EoC seems to be CCL11 (Eotaxin-1). CCL11 is a molecule that attracts eosinophils in the tissue. In eosinophilic esophagitis or gastritis, the main chemotactic factor appears to be CCL26 (Eotaxin-3). All these findings support the idea that EoC is a distinct entity, which is different from other EGIDs and IBD. [15:37] EoC seems to be driven by a mechanism that does not involve an allergic inflammation. The therapeutic strategy may be much different now that we have a better understanding of EoC. [16:23] Eosinophilic esophagitis has been shown to run in families and it would be beneficial to test family members with a blood test, allergy testing, or endoscopy if they develop symptoms. As eosinophilic colitis has a different epigenetic mechanism, it is not clear that the same testing is needed for EoC patients or family members. [17:26] Besides endoscopies and colonoscopies, blood tests looking for high IgE levels, allergy testing, and CT can be useful in testing for various eosinophilic disorders. [21:07] Dr. Arva explains how many eosinophils are seen in a high-power field of a slide from a colon biopsy to diagnose EoC. They established a normal count of eosinophils for the segment of the colon and the abnormal count would be twice the normal count. [22:20] Now that a different pathogenic mechanism has been discovered for EoC than for EGIDs and IBD, new treatments can be explored or developed. We are just beginning the research. CLC protein (galectin-10) is upregulated in EoC and may be a target for treatment development. Antibodies may be effective for relieving EoC inflammation. [23:34] It is challenging to treat EoC because the newly-discovered pathogenic mechanism shows that EoC is unlikely to be allergic in nature, making elimination diets and steroid treatments ineffective. New therapies will be required. [24:05] All EGIDs can have a significant impact on quality of life. People with EoC can develop serious complications, such as dehydration, malnutrition, intestinal strictures, and bowel obstruction. [25:04] Dr. Arva considers the difficulties pathologists face in analyzing eosinophilic diseases. There are few patients with EoC. Dr. Arva describes additional challenges. [26:25] Dr. Arva looks ahead. Most of her research goes in the direction of pediatric gastroenterology. She is working with a clinical colleague, Dr. Josh Weschler, to analyze the role of mast cells in EGIDs. They are finding that eosinophils are not the only offenders in EGIDs and are looking to establish a cohort of EGID patients to study. [27:43] Holly thanks Dr. Arva for taking the time to talk with us today. [27:51] Dr. Arva says we are just at the beginning of understanding the etiology of EoC. This study had a small sample size and the results will have to be validated with larger cohorts of patients. The analyses were performed on whole biopsies that contained all types of cells. Future studies using single-cell preparations will be important. [28:55] Ryan invites listeners to look at apfed.org/eoc to learn more about EoC. Ryan also encourages you to connect with the APFED online community at apfed.org/connections. [29:25] Dr. Arva thanks Ryan and Holly for having her on the podcast. She is grateful for the opportunity to research EGIDs and benefit patients suffering from these conditions.   Mentioned in This Episode: American Partnership for Eosinophilic Disorders (APFED) APFED on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram Nicole Arva, MD, PhD Ann & Robert H.

Today, I am blessed to have here with me The Meat Mafia. The Meat Mafia officially began in January 2022 with one mission: to share their wealth of practical experiences in transforming their health through an active, animal-based lifestyle. Animal-based living emphasizes the elimination of processed foods and the consumption of whole natural foods. As the name suggests, most of these foods come from animal sources, from beef to honey. In their belief, locally sourced animal-based foods optimize personal and planetary health. In this episode, The Meat Mafia speak about their health issues and how eating a carnivore diet helped Brett reverse his ulcerative colitis and improved Harrison's inflammatory skin problems. Then, the guys jump straight into stigmas around eating an animal-based diet and how the health of our environment actually depends on regenerative agriculture and ruminating animals. Tune in as we chat about finding the best sources for your animal-based diet and what you need to know about buying meat from the grocery store.

Colitis is an autoimmune disease that affects your large intestine, which is your colon. You can't really process any food with ulcerative colitis. Doctors tell you that colitis is an incurable disease. After listening to Dr. Shawn Baker on Joe Rogan's podcast, Brett changed his life forever. Listen to the episode here: https://open.spotify.com/episode/2auwtVto0sG7OcZ0hs3aOP?si=VF4iKaIcRvS_gar_nJrZ1g. Brett experimented with the carnivore diet, and he noticed all the bloating in his stomach was gone, his skin cleared up, and his energy improved. [15:10] A Keto Lifestyle Can Reduce Symptoms of Inflammatory Skin Problems Harrison's first interaction with the healthcare system was from skin problems. His cystic acne had everything to do with his terrible diet. Ultimately, Harrison got on Accutane. Harrison tried the paleo diet during his first year of college, and his athletic training and energy levels improved. After trying keto, Harrison lost ten pounds in a matter of weeks. [29:10] The Health Grasslands and The Health of Ruminate Animals Are Interconnected There are still stigmas around red meat being a staple of healthy nutritional diets. Also, people don't discuss animals' role in restoring soil quality. Anti-meat people will gravitate toward the harmful practices of agriculture. However, there are ways to raise animals that improve the soil. The Meat Mafia likes to go to farms and learn stories about practicing regenerative agriculture. Check out Roam Ranch as an example: http://roamranch.com/ [34:20] Find A Local Farmer's Market To Support The Best System Possible Here are some resources to check out about local food sources: Wild Food Sources: https://www.wildfoods.co/ Shire: https://shireapp.io/ Beef Initiative Food Intelligence Summit: https://beefinitiative.com/ Find a farmer's market in your area and ask if they utilize regenerative practices. When you support local farmers, you're supporting the right system, and you can nourish your family with the best quality protein possible. [40:55] Health Is Not An Expense; Health Is An Investment If you can't afford meat from a local farmer, you can still eat the meat at a grocery store. Always do what is best for you and your budget. Eating stuff in the grocery store's outer aisle will make you healthier than 99% of the population. However, supporting local farms is healthier for the supply chain and you. When you nourish the body with the proper nutrients, it will be an investment in your health. [43:05] What To Know About Shopping For Meat In The Grocery Store You need your beef to be pasture raised and 100% grass-fed. When you look at chicken and pork, they are fed corn and soy diets. If possible, steer towards a beef-based diet. Also, make sure your eggs are pasture-raised. Be careful about the marketing tricks that companies use. They could write “vegetarian fed.” In reality, that means they are being fed corn and soy. AND MUCH MORE!

This week we talked to Shawn Luna! Shawn was diagnosed with UC as an adult and it was a big surprise since he hadn't had any symptoms of it when he was younger. We talked about how quickly his UC came on, how scary it was to get diagnosed, and his struggles with pain and fatigue and to get into remission which lead to him being steroid dependent. As part of this process, his original gastroenterologist "fired" him and referred him to a IBD specialist and we talked to him about the difference in his care and how his new doctor got him into remission and helped him wean off of the steroids. Shawn was very open and honest about how he struggled with his mental health during the years when he wasn't in remission and how that affected his marriage, his parenting, and his sense of identity as a man and father. We were so impressed with Shawn's grit and positivity despite his difficult journey to remission and we love how he's used his experience to help other people struggling with IBD.

Megan was diagnosed with UC in high school and, while it compromised her ability to do some of her favorite activities for a while, it didn't prevent her from finding new ways to enjoy her life and even led to her meeting some new people affected by IBD. Megan has devoted much of her life to helping other people with IBD share their story, feel connected, and to feel a sense of community. She is one of the founders of the nonprofit The Great Bowel Movement and it's mission is to "foster conversations surrounding the complexities and realities of IBD, fueled by an empowered, active community of patients and caregivers like you." They started by selling cool, awareness-building shirts but it has grown to so much more. We talk to Megan about her motivation to start her nonprofit, running and cycling and the communities she's built through those activities, how animals can be really important sources of support and motivation, her role developing and facilitating the Leader In Training program at a camp for kids with IBD, her struggles with insurance even thought she's in remission, and so much more.

In this episode, Founder of Enhanced Recovery After Delivery™, Dr. Rebeca Segraves, Co-Founder of Entropy Physiotherapy, Dr. Sarah Haag, Owner and Founder of Reform Physical Therapy, Dr. Abby Bales, and Co-Owner of Entropy Physiotherapy, Dr. Sandy Hilton, talk about the consequences of overturning Roe v. Wade. Today, they talk about the importance of taking proactive measure in communities, and the legal and ethical obligations of healthcare practitioners. How do physical therapists get the trust of communities who already don't trust healthcare? Hear about red-flagged multipurpose drugs, advocating for young people's education, providing physical therapy care during and after delivery, and get everyone's words of encouragement for healthcare providers and patients, all on today's episode of The Healthy, Wealthy & Smart Podcast.   Key Takeaways “Our insurance-based system is not ready to handle the far-reaching consequences of forced birth at a young age and botched abortions.” “We do need to know abortive procedures so that we can recognize when someone has been through an unsafe situation.” “We really need to take into consideration the ramifications of what this will do.” “This is not good healthcare and we need to do more.” “We're going to have to know our rules, our laws, and what we're willing to do and go through so that we can provide the care that we know our patients deserve.” “We're looking at the criminalization of healthcare. That is not healthcare.” “We know who this criminalization of healthcare is going to affect the most. It's going to affect poor, marginalized people of color.” “We can no longer choose to stay in our lane.” “We need to have a public health physio on the labour and delivery, and on maternity floors.” “We don't get to have an opinion on the right or wrongness of this. We have a problem ahead of us that is happening already as we speak.” “We need to create more innovators in our field, and education is the way to do that.” “This is frustrating and new, and we're not going to abandon you. We're going to figure it out and be there to help.” “Our clinics are still safe. We are still treating you based on what you are dealing with, and we will not be dictated by anybody else.” “If you need help, there is help.” “If we believe in the autonomy of an individual to know all of the information before making a decision, then we still believe in the autonomy of an individual to know all of the information that is best for their body.” “This affects everyone. We're dedicated to advocating for you.”   More about Dr. Rebeca Segraves Rebeca Segraves, PT, DPT, WCS  is a physical therapist and Board-Certified Women's Health Clinical Specialist who has served individuals and families within the hospital and home during pregnancy and immediately postpartum.

The information in this podcast is for entertainment purposes only and should not be used as personalized medical advice. And now, here's your host, Dr. Karen Litzy. Hey everybody,   00:36 welcome back to the podcast. I am your host, Karen Litzy. And on today's episode, I am very fortunate to have for pretty remarkable physical therapists who also happen to be pelvic health specialists. On to discuss the recent Supreme Court ruling in the dobs case that overturned the landmark ruling of Roe vs. Wade. How will this reversal of Roe v Wade affect the patients that we may see on a regular basis in all facets, facets of the physical therapy world. So to help have this discussion, I am very excited to welcome onto the podcast, Dr. Rebecca Seagraves and Dr. Abby bales and to welcome back to the podcast Dr. Sandy Hilton, and Dr. Sarah Hague. So regardless of where you fall on this decision, it is important that the physical therapy world be prepared to care for these patients. So I want to thank all four of these remarkable physical therapists for coming on to the podcast. Once the podcast starts, they will talk a little bit more about themselves, and then we will get right into our discussion. So thank you everyone for tuning in. And thanks to Abby, Rebecca, Sandy, and Sarah.   02:03 I, my name is Rebecca Seagraves, I'm a private practice pelvic health therapist who provides hospital based and home based pelvic health services and I teach occupational and physical therapists to provide their services earlier in the hospital so that women don't have to suffer.   02:20 Perfect Sarah, go ahead.   02:22 I am Sarah Haig. And I'm a physical therapist at entropy physiotherapy in Chicago, and I'm also assistant professor and at a university where I do get to teach a variety of health care providers.   02:35 Perfect, Abby, go ahead. My name is Abby bales. I'm a physical therapist, I specialize in pelvic health for the pregnant and postpartum athlete. I have my practice in New York City called perform physical therapy, and I do in home visits and I have a small clinic location.   02:54 Perfect and Sandy. Go ahead.   02:56 Sandy Hilton. I'm a pelvic health physical therapist. I'm currently in Chicago with Sara entropy. And I'm in Chicago and online. Because we can see people for consultations wherever they are, and we may be needing to do more of that.   03:13 So the first question I have for all of you lovely ladies, is how will the recent Supreme Court ruling in the dobs case, which was overturning Roe v. Wade? How is that going to affect people who give birth that we see in our clinics in the hospital setting in an outpatient setting in a home setting? So let's start with Sara, go ahead. I'll start with you. And then we'll just kind of go around. And and and also feel free to chime in and you know, the conversation as you see fit? Got?   03:58 That's such a big question. And I get to go first. So the question was how, how is this decision going to affect people who give birth? And I would say it just it affects everyone in in kind of different ways. Because I would say what this will undoubtedly do is result in us seeing people who didn't want to give birth. And and I think, you know, the effects of that are going to be far reaching and that we I think maybe we in this little group can have an idea of, of the vastness of this decision, but I think that even we will be surprised at what happens. I think that how it will affect people who give birth. Gosh, I'm kind of speechless because there's so many different ways. But when we're looking at that person in front of us with whatever they need to do For whatever they need assistance with after giving birth, we're going to have to just amplify exponentially our consideration for where they are and how they felt going into the birth, how they got pregnant in the first place. And, and kind of how they see themselves going forward. We talk about treating women in the fourth trimester. And it's, I mean, I'm in that fourth trimester, myself, and I can tell you that it would be harder to ask for help. And I'm really fortunate that I, that I have that I do have support, and that I do have the ability to seek help. I have a million great friends that I can reach out to for help, but I'm just how the how it's gonna affect the women, I'll say, I'm scared, but it's not about me. I'm very concerned for other women who won't be able to access the care that they that they need.   06:05 Yeah, Sandy, go ahead. What do you think? How do you feel this decision will affect people who can give birth, especially as they come to see physical therapist, whether that be during pregnancy? As Sarah just said, the fourth trimester, or perhaps after a procedure, or abortion that maybe didn't go? Well? Because it wasn't safe?   06:30 Yeah, so I work a lot with pain. One of my concerns is, but what is the future gonna hold for some people who did not want to be pregnant not added some sort of convenience or concern for finances, both of which, you know, your spot in life determines whether or not you have the the ability to raise another person at that moment. So there are individual decisions that people should make, in my opinion, but also, there's the if something happens to you, that you did not give permission to happen. And then you are dealing with the consequences. In this instance, pregnancy, and you happen to have back pain or have hip pain, or have a chronic condition, or a pelvic pain history, where you didn't not want to be pregnant. How's that going to affect the pain and the dysfunction that you're, you are already happening? And will it sensitize people to worse outcomes and recovery afterwards, because this is a, you know, there's a perceived injustice scale, I want to pull that back out. I hadn't been using it very often in the clinic just didn't seem to change the course of care. But I think that when I'm working with the people pre post, during pregnancy, I think I'm going to pull my perceived injustice scale back out and see if that might be a nice way to find out. If I need to hook someone up to a counselor, a financial counselor, psychologist, sexual therapist, anyone who might be able to support this person, we already don't have good support systems for pregnancy. I just am astounded at how much what a bad choice it is to add more need to a system that isn't currently handling the demand. I know we're gonna need to get creative because these people will need help. But I am a little awestruck at the possible quantum s we're gonna walk into   08:51 an abbey you had mentioned before we started recording about you know, some of the folks that you see that may have a history of different kinds of trauma, and how that may affect their abilities are to kind of wrap their head around being pregnant and then being forced to give birth because now they don't have any alternative. So how do you feel like that's going to play out in the physical therapy world, if they even get to physical therapy if they even get to a pelvic health therapist?   09:34 Yeah, that's, that's one of the things that I was I was thinking about as everyone was chiming in was, we really are just at the precipice in our niche of our profession, where people who give birth are seeking or even hearing about pelvic health and postpartum care, pregnancy care there. Just barely hearing about it. And my I have, you know, a concern, a very deep concern that these people will go into hiding if they have had an abortion in the past, because are we obligated to report that, and what is the statute of limitations on that, and the shame that they might feel for having had an abortion, or having had give birth and didn't want to, and the trauma that my patients who have, for the most part, not everyone who have wanted pregnancies that either the birth is traumatic, the pregnancy is traumatic, they get to a successful delivery, or they have a loss during the pregnancy, the trauma that they are experiencing, and for the most part, I'm seeing adults, and I cannot comprehend children, because it's this gonna be a lot of children who are forced to give birth, or who are having unsafe abortions, and the trauma that they're going to experience, and how, how much it takes for a person who has sexual trauma or birth trauma to get to my clinic, how these young people how these people who feel that shame, I don't know how they're going to get to me, or any of us, except for a real team based approach with pediatricians, with hospitals, with OB GYN, with your gynecologist with people who might see them first before us. I just don't know how they get to us to be able to treat and help treat that trauma. And like Sandy said, that pelvic pain that might be a result of the trauma if if it's unwanted sexual intercourse, I just don't know how we get to them. And that is something that we struggle with now, with, for the most part, wanted pregnancies. And I don't know how we get there. And I don't think we're prepared as a profession. for that. I think the advocacy for getting ourselves into pediatricians offices into into family medicine offices, is going to be so crucial in getting to these patients. But there aren't enough of us. We are not prepared. And our insurance based system is not ready to handle the far reaching consequences of forced birth at a young age and botched abortions. It is not ready to handle that.   12:52 Rebecca, go ahead. I'm curious to hear your thoughts around this because of your work in acute care systems.   13:00 Absolutely. I believe that I'm beyond the argument of whether this is right, or whether this is wrong. I think that as a profession, we're going to have to quickly change to a mindset of can we be prepared enough to handle what Abby was saying the amount of trauma, the amount of mental health I think, comes to mind when when someone's autonomy is taken away from them in any regard. I was very vocal as to how dangerous it was to force, you know, mandates on people even last year. And now here we are, we're at a point in our profession where we have to now separate our own personal beliefs and be committed to the oath of doing no further harm because this will result in harm, having treated individuals after an unplanned cesarean section or a cesarean hysterectomy, because of severe blood loss. They had no choice in those procedures. And they had no choice in the kind of recovery or rehabilitation they would get. I had to fight an advocate for our services, physical and occupational therapy services to be offered to individuals. So when you're looking someone in the eye who has lost autonomy over their body as last choice has gone through trauma that changes you it changes me really as a profession, even on this a professional or even on this issue. I'm now pivoting as quickly as I can't decide, do I have the skills that's going to be needed to address maybe hemorrhage events from an unsafe abortion that's performed? Maybe the mental health of having to try All across state lines so that you can find a provider that will treat you maybe the, you know, the shame around, you know, even finding Well, you know, is there a safe space for me to be treated for my pelvic health trauma from you know, maybe needing to carry this pregnancy longer than then I would have wanted to, there's, there's so much around this that we really have to start looking at with a clinical eye with a very empathetic or sympathetic eye as pelvic health therapists because of the fact that there's so few of us. And because now we're in a scenario where there will be more people who will be needing services but not knowing who to turn to. So my my biggest hope from this conversation, and many more that we'll have is that there's some how going to be a way to designate ourselves as a safe space for anyone, no matter what choice they've made for their body, period, I'm really done with being on one end of the spectrum with this, I'm a professional that doesn't have that opportunity to just, you know, be extreme on this, I advocate for the person and for their choice over their body period.   16:17 I think we need to, and it's just beautifully, beautifully said, the the getting getting some small systemic procedures in place in the communities we live in, is most likely the first step is reach out to the pediatricians and the chiropractors and the massage therapists and the trainers and the school athletic trainers and whoever you find that can have a connection with people and let them know on an individual basis. So like how do you tell people hey, I'm a trustworthy clinic to come to is not usually by writing it on your website. But if you can make connections in your community and be a trusted provider, that's going to go further, I suspect. I'm assuming there's going to be a fair bit of mistrust. And we have to earn it once it's lost. We've got to earn it back. So yeah, I like the proactiveness of that.   17:22 I, I totally agree on something you said Sandy sparked something that I would love for a health care lawyer to start weighing in on is we want, I am a safe space. I think every patient I have ever met who sees me cries. And I hold I hold that part of what I do. Very close to me, it's it's an honor to be someone that my patients open up to. And I know all of you on this call feel the same way because we we are that place that they they I love hearing birth stories. I love it. Even it just gives me an insight into that person into that experience. I feel like I'm there with them. And I understand better what they have gone through. But what happens when the legal system is going to come for us? Or them through us? What happens to that? How do we continue to be a safe space where they can share their sexual trauma, their birth trauma, their birth history, their pregnancy history, their menstruation, history, their sexual history? All of those really, really intimate things? How do we continue to be that for our patients?   18:56 I think we've had to do this I've had to do this previously, for in some very, in situations of incest in for the most part, we need a trigger warning on this. But, you know, there you have an individual that is a minor, or, or for some reason not independent that is being abused in what is supposed to be their safe space. And then that person, the abuser can be like, Oh, look, I'm helping you get better. And they're actually not safe. So there's some things and if the person you're treating is a minor, that adult has access to their records. And so I've worked in places not I don't know how to do with an EMR but I've worked in places where we have our chart that we write down the official record and sticky notes, which are the things that will not get put in the official record. But we need to have written down so people know it. And we've had to do that in situations where the patient wasn't safe. We all knew the patient wasn't safe. was being worked on to get them safe, but they were not yet safe. And you had to make sure there was nothing in their records that was going to make them more unsafe. I don't know how to do it as an EMR, if someone has a clever way to do that, that'd be great. Or we go back to EMR plus paper charts.   20:18 Even to to add to your point, Abby, if we're looking now at possible, you know, jurisdiction, you know, lead legal their jurisdiction or subpoena of documentation, you know, after having intervened for someone who may have had to make a choice that their state did not condone? Yeah, no, I, I'm completely, you know, on guard against that now, and that those are things that I'm thinking about now and thinking about, well, what would my profession do? Would we back, you know, you know, efforts on Capitol Hill to advocate for, you know, someone who, who has lost their, their autonomy, or lost their ability to, to at least have a safer procedure, and we've had to intervene in that way. You know, I think about that now, and I, that makes me fearful that this is such a hot topic issue that, you know, we might not as an organization want to choose size, but we as professionals on the ground as pelvic health therapists, I don't think that we have that luxury and turning someone away. And so So yeah, I think more conversations like this need to be had so that we can form a unified front of at least, you know, pelvic health specialists that can really help with the the after effects of this.   21:38 And I think a big barrier to that legal aspect of it is, you know, what is our legal responsibility. And what happens, if we don't do XYZ is because a lot of the laws and a lot of these states, some of these trigger laws and other laws being that are being passed, the rules seem to be a bit murky. They're not clear. And so I agree, I think the APTA or the section on pelvic health needs to come out with clear guidelines as to what we as healthcare professionals, can and should do. But here's the other thing that I don't understand and maybe someone else can. What about HIPAA? Isn't that a thing? Where did the HIPAA laws come in to protect the privacy between the provider and the patient? And I don't know the answer that I'm not a lawyer, but we have protection through hip isn't that the point of a HIPAA HIPAA laws? I don't know what   22:44 you would think so. But unfortunately, one of the justices who shall not be named has decided that abortion does not fall under HIPAA, because it involves the life of another being in so I can only state what has been stated or restate. But yes, the those are the very things that I'm afraid we're up against as professionals.   23:12 Yeah, I think they're going to try to make us mandatory reporters. for it. I think they're gonna try to make all healthcare we are mandatory. For some things, the thing that's good for some things. Yeah, the   23:24 thing that bothers me about that is the where I'm in Illinois right now, Illinois is a designated, look, we're not, we're not going to infringe on people's right to health care. Just great. But some of the laws and I've lost track, I was trying to keep track of how many have are voting on or have already voted on laws that would have civil penalties, penalties of providers from other states, regardless of the Practice Act of that provider, to be able to have a civil lawsuit against that provider. So that's fun. And then we go back to what ABBY You had mentioned before we started recording about medicine, that that is considered an abort efficient, I have a really hard time with that word. But that is also used for other conditions that we see in our clinics for pain for function and things like that. And then where's our role?   24:33 Right, so does someone want to talk about these more specific on what those medications are and what they're for? So that people listening are like, Okay, well, what medications, you know, so do you want to kind of go into maybe what those medications are, what they're for and how they tie back into our profession. Because, you know, a lot of people will say, well, this isn't our lane. So we're trying to do these podcasts. so people understand it's very much within our lane.   25:03 Well, I yeah, it's just from a pharmacology standpoint, the one of the probably most popular well known drugs that's used for abortion is under the generic name of Cytotec misoprostol, and that's a drug that's not only only used for abortion, but if individual suffers a miscarriage is used to help with retained placenta and making sure that the uterus clears. What other people don't know is is also used for induction. So the same drug is used for three or four different purposes. It's also used for postpartum hemorrhage. So measle Postel, or Cytotec is a drug as pelvic health therapists we should be very familiar with. And we should be familiar with it. Not only you know, for, you know, this this topic, but it's also been a drug that's been linked with the uterus going into hyperstimulation. So actually putting someone at risk for bleeding too heavily. And all of this has a lot of implications on someone's mental health, who's suffered a miscarriage who's gone through an abortion that maybe was not safely performed, which I have had very close experience with someone who's been given misoprostol Cytotec, it didn't take well, she continued bleeding through the weekend, because she lived in a state where emergency physicians could opt out of knowing a board of medications. So as professionals, we do need to know, a board of procedures so that we can recognize when someone has been through an unsafe situation it is, it is our oath as metal as medical professionals to know those things, not to necessarily have a stance on those things that will prevent us from providing high quality and safe care.   26:52 Another one of the medications is methotrexate, and it's used to treat inflammatory bowel disease. And as public health specialists, we'd see people who have IBD, Crohn's and Colitis, who have had surgery who are in flareups who are being treated like that treated with that medication. And it is again used in in abortions. And when you're on that medication, you have to take pregnancy tests in order to still be able to get your prescription for that medication. And as a person who I myself have inflammatory bowel disease and have been on that medication before, I can tell you that you don't go on those medications lightly. It is you are counseled when you are of an age where you could possibly get pregnant, and taking those medications. And it's very serious to take them. And you also have to get to a certain stage of very serious disease in order to take that it's not the first line of defense. So if we start removing medications, or they start to be red flagged on EMRs, or org charts, and we become mandatory reporters for seeing that medication, God forbid, on someone's you know, they're when they're telling us what type of medications they're taking, that there would be an inquiry into that for for any reason is just it's it's horrifying. I mean, it's, we treat these patients and they trust us, and we want them to trust us. But as we get farther and farther down this rabbit hole of, of going after providers, pharmacists, people who help give them information to go to a different state, I just it is. Like I said before, the breadth and the depth of this decision, reverberates everywhere. And if if PTS think that they are in orthopedic clinics, that they are somehow immune from it, you're absolutely not. And for those clinics who have taken on or encourage one of their one of their therapists to take on women's health because it's now a buzz issue. It's really cool. You are now going to see that in your clinic. And you know, like Rebecca was saying before, you know any number of us who have really strong and long term relationships with patients who are pregnant who are in postpartum I have intervened and sent patients to the hospital on the phone with them because they have remnants of conception and they have a fever and someone's blowing them off and not letting them into the IDI and sending them home. And we we are seeing those patients, they have an ectopic they're, they're bleeding, is it normal, they're calling me they're not calling their OB they can't get their OB on the phone. They're texting me and saying what should I do? And they have that trust with me and what happens when they don't? And they're bleeding and they're not asking someone that question and they don't know where to go for help. And so I know I took this in a different direction and we talked about pharmacology, but I just thing that I have those patients whose lives I have saved by sending them to the emergency department, because they are sick, they have an infection, they are bleeding, they have an ectopic, it is not normal. And I don't know what happens when they no longer have that trust with us not not because we're not trustworthy, but because they're scared.   30:26 The heavy silence of all of us going   30:31 you know, it's, it's not wrong. And I think the like, it just keeps going through my head. It's just like, so what do we do? I mean, Karen, you mentioned like, it'd be great if somebody came out with a list of, of guidance for us. And I just, that just won't happen. Because there's different laws in different states, different practice acts in different states. And no one, you know, like you even if you talk to a lawyer, they're going to say, this would be the interpretation. But also, as of yet, there's no like case law, to give us any sort of any sort of guidance. So that was a lot of words to say, it's really hard. I can tell you in Illinois, like two or three weeks ago, I'd be like, like, I'm happy, I feel like Illinois is a pretty safe space. We have, we have elections for our governor this year. And I have never been so worried, so motivated to vote. And so motivated to to really make sure to talk to people about it's not just like this, this category or this category, it's like we really need to take into consideration the ramifications of what this will do, I think there was a lot of this probably won't affect me a whole lot. But I think I'm guessing I think a lot of us on this call maybe I think all of us on all of us on this call, have lived our lives with Roe v. Wade. And, as all of this is coming up, and just thinking about how it impacts so many people, and how our healthcare system is already doing not a good job of taking care of so many people, the fact that we would do this with no, no scientific, back ground, no support scientifically. Like I pulled up the ACOG statement, and, and they condemn this devastating decision. And I really, I was like, it gave me gave me goosebumps. And this was referred to in our art Association's statement. And it makes me sad that we didn't condemn it. Hope that's not too political. But I'm really sad that we didn't take a stronger stance to say, this is not good health care. And we need to do more. Again, and that's like, again, so many words, to say we're gonna have to make up our own minds, we're gonna have to know, our rules, our laws and what we're willing to do, and go through, so that we can provide the care that we know our patients deserve. And that's going to be really hard. Because, you know, if I talk to someone, and if I call Rebecca in Washington State, she's going to have something different than if I talk to Abby in New York. And you know, that so it'll be, it'll be really hard even to find that support. That support there's going to be so much support, I think, from this community, but that knowledge and that, that confidence, we have to pull together so we have to pull together with all the other providers, but also we're gonna have to sit down and figure this out to   33:59 the clarity. So it's, I think a practical step forward would be each state to get get, like, every state, come up with a thing. So pelvic health therapists in that state come up with what seems to work for them get a lovely healthcare lawyer to to work with them with it. And then we could have a clearinghouse of sorts of all of the state statements. I don't know that that needs to go through a particular organization. I I know that they're in the field of physical therapy, two thirds of PTS aren't members. And we need this information to be out there for every single person so that they know   34:44 that we'll have to be grassroots there's I don't think that there's going to be widespread Association support from anywhere. But that being said, I think it's a great idea.   34:58 What are we going to do about it? Hang on issues that are too divisive, you're absolutely right, individual entities are going to have to take this on and just put those resources out to therapists who need them need the legal support, need the need to know how and how to circumvent issues in their states. And, you know, like I said before, even how to just provide that emotional support, there's going to be needed for their, their, their patients, so, and that's okay, if the organizations that were part of are not willing to take a heavy stance, you know, even like last year, if you're not willing to take a heavy stance, on an issue where someone feels their autonomy, and their choice is being threatened, then it's okay, well, we'll take it from here. But, you know, that's, that's really where these grassroots efforts come from and abound, because there are a group of individuals who are willing to say, No, this is wrong. And I'm going to do something about this so that our future generations don't have to suffer.   36:02 Yeah, and I think, you know, we're really looking at the criminalization of health care.   36:09 That is not healthcare.   36:12 And we also know who this criminalization of healthcare is going to affect the most. And it's going to affect poor, marginalized people of color, it is not going to affect the wealthy white folks in any state, they'll be fine. So how do we, as physical therapist, deal with that? How do we, how do we get the trust of those communities who already don't trust health care, so now they're going to stay away even more, we already have the highest mortality, maternal mortality rates in the developed world, I can only imagine that will get worse because people, as we've all heard today are going to be afraid to seek health care. So where do we go from here as health care providers? I,   37:10 Karen, you're speaking something that's very near and dear to my heart, I act as if you had to take this on, I am very adamant that we can no longer choose to stay in our lane, we do not have that luxury. And I as a black female, you know, physical therapist, I don't have the luxury to ignore that because of the color of my skin, and not my doctor's degree, not my board certification and women's health, you know, not my faculty position, I when I walk into a hospital, and I either choose to give birth or have a procedure, I will be judged by none other than the color of my skin. That is what the data is telling me is that I am three times likely to have a very severe outcome. If I were to have a pregnancy that did not go as planned or or don't choose a procedure, you know, that affects the rest of my function in my health. And so given the data on this, you're absolutely right there, there is going to be very specific populations that are going to receive the most blowback from this. And as a pelvic health therapist, I had to go into the hospital to find them, because I knew that people of color and of marginalized backgrounds, were not going to find me in my clinic. And we're not going to pay necessarily private pay services to receive that care. But I needed to go where they were most likely to be and that was the hospital setting or in their home. And so, again, as a field of a very dispersed and you know, not very many of us at all, we're going to have to pivot into these areas that we were not necessarily comfortable in being if we're going to address the populations that are going to be most affected by the decisions our lawmakers are making for our bodies.   39:11 You know, there's something that I think about, often when I hear this type of conversation come up in, in sexual health and in in whenever I am speaking with one of my patients and talking about their menstruation history, and, and them not knowing how their body works from such a young age is I just wonder if we should be offering programs for young people like very young pre ministration you know, people with uteruses and their parents, and grandparents and online, online like little anonymous. Yep. nonnamous   39:51 for it's just   39:52 Yes. Yes, it's it's just, you know, Andrew Huberman talks a lot about having data Back to free content that scientific, that's factual. And I think about that a lot. And I think, to my mind, where I go with this, because I do think about the lifespan of a person, is that creating something that someone can access anonymously at any age, and then maybe creating something where it's offered at a school? You know, it's it's ministration health. And it doesn't have to be under the guise of, you know, this happened with Roe v. Wade, but this it could be menstruation, health, what is a person who menstruating what can you expect? What you know, and going through the lifespan with them, but offering them? You know, I think I think about this with my own children, as our pediatrician always asks the question of the visit, who is allowed to see under your clothes who is allowed to touch you? And it's like, you and my, I have a five year old. So it's Mom, when when when I go number two, a mom or dad when I go number two? And that's it. And you know, I think about that, and I think about how we can educate young people on a variety of things within this topic, and kind of include other stuff, too, that's normal, not normal, depending on their age. Absolutely, there   41:22 was what I was excited about in pelvic health. Before this was people like Frank to physician and his PhD students and postdocs are working on a series of research about how if we identify young girls that are starting their period, and having painful periods, treat them and educate them, then that they will not go on to have as much pelvic pain conditions and issues in the future. So we look at the early childhood events kind of thing, but also period pain. And How exciting would it be if we could get education to young girls about just how their bodies work. And to know that just because you all your aunties have horrible periods doesn't mean that you're stuck with this, just like maybe they just didn't know, let's help you out and constipation information and those basic health self care for preventative problems. So I was super excited about all that. And now it's like, oh, now we have to do it. Because in that we can do little pieces of information. So people have knowledge about their body, that's going to be a little bit of armor for them, that they're going to need and free and available in short, and you know, slide it past all the YouTube sensors. This is this is doable, but it's gonna take time money doing, but we can do it. Well, it sounds like, ladies,   42:52 we've got a lot of work to do. One other thing I wanted to touch upon. And we've said this a couple of times, but I think it's worth repeating again and again and again. And that's that expanding out to other providers. So it's expanding out, as Rebecca said, expanding out to our colleagues in acute care, meaning you can see someone right after a procedure right after birth right after a C section. And, and sadly, as we were saying, I think we they may start seeing more women, I'm not even set children under the age of 18. In these positions of force birth on a skeletally immature body. So the only place to reach these children would be maybe in that acute care setting. How what does the profession need to do in order to make that happen? And not not shy away from it, but give them the information that they need. Moving forward?   44:07 I was just gonna say that I've given birth in the hospital twice. Not at any time was I offered a physical therapist, or did a physical therapist come by and I am in New York City. I gave birth in New York City, planned Solarians because of my illnesses. And nobody came by I did get lactation nurses, any manner of people who were seeing me I was on their service. But that has been something that we needed anyway. We mean to have a pelvic health physio on the labor and delivery and on the maternity floors, who is coming by educating as to what they can start with what they can expect. When can they have an exam if they want to have one? Who is a trusted provider for them to have one. And we need to get the hospitals to expand acute care, physical therapy to labor and delivery and, and the maternity floors. As a routine, it's not something you should have to call for, it should be routine clearance for discharge the same way you have to watch the shaking baby video to get discharged.   45:27 I'm happy older than all of you. I don't have it either. But taking baby video is not something that even existed back in the day. But that makes sense. I mean, I once upon a time was a burn therapist, and I was on call at a regional Trauma Center. And you know, it's like you're needed your, your pager goes off, because that's how long ago it was. And you just came in, did your thing, went back home went back to bed. There is no reason other than lack of will, that PTS couldn't be doing that right now.   46:03 I'm now of the opinion where it's unethical to not offer physical or occupational therapy within 24 to 48 hours of someone who had no idea who did not have a planned delivery the way they expected it who has now and a massively long road to recovery. After a major abdominal surgery, I'm now of the opinion that is unethical for our medical systems to not offer that those rehabilitative services. And I've treated individuals who had a cesarean section but suffered a stillbirth. So the very thought of not providing services to someone who has any kind of procedure that's affecting, you know, their their their not only their pelvic health, but their mental function. That to me is now given the you know, these these, this recent decision on overturning Roe v Wade, is now now we're never, you know, either we're going to now pivot again as pelvic health therapists and start training our acute care colleagues, as we did with our orthopedic colleagues, as we've done with, you know, our neurology colleagues, whatever we've had to do as pelvic health therapists to bring attention to half of the population, you know, who are undergoing procedures, and they're not being informed on how to recover, we will have to start educating and kind of really grow beyond just the clinics and beyond what we can do in our community or community. But we are going to have to start educating our other colleagues in these other settings, we don't have a choice, we know too much, but we can't be everywhere. And not all of us can be in the hospital setting, we're going to have to train the individuals who are used to seeing anything that walks through the door and tell them get over to the obstetric unit. Okay, there's someone there waiting for you.   48:06 Yeah, I totally agree. I mean, when I think back I remember as a student working in acute care and how we had someone who's dedicated to the ICU, we had someone dedicated to the medical floor, we had somebody who was dedicated to the ortho floor, and most of the time they had their OCS, their, their, the one for for, for ICU care, the one for NeuroCare, or they have a specialty. And I think it is just remnants of the bygone era of it's natural, your body will heal kind of BS from the past. It's just remnants of that and it's just, we don't need the APTA to give us permission to do this, this is internal, this is I'm going into a hospital, and I'm presenting you with a program. And here is what this what you can build this visit for here's the ICD 10 code for this visit here is here is here are two people who are going to give you know, one seminar to all of your PT OTs, to you know, so that you are aware of what the possible complications and when to refer out and that kind of thing. And then here are two therapists who are acute care therapists who are going to also float to the maternity floor one of them every day, so that we can hit the we can get to these patients at that point, and that is just that's just people who present a program who have an idea, who get it in front of the board that that it is not permission from anybody else to do it. And, you know, it really it fires me up to to create a world in which you know, when you know people who are the heads of departments and chairs and you know on the boards of directors You know, being in big, big cities or small cities, when you know those people, you know, you can, your passion can fire them up. And if you can fire people up, and you can advocate for your patients and you can in that can spread, you can make that happen. And this is, you know, I feel radicalized by this, I mean, I'm burning my bra all over the place with this kind of thing. And I just feel like, if we can, if we can get to young people, and if we can get to day zero, of delivery, day one, post delivery, or post trauma, then then maybe we can make a dent, maybe we can, maybe we can try, maybe we can really make a go of this for these people. Because, like I keep feeling and saying I, we are not prepared for the volume.   50:54 If individuals are going to be forced to carry a pregnancy, that they may not want to turn because it's affecting their health, we're going to have to be prepared for this. Again, this is not an option really, for us as pelvic health therapists, because we know what's down the road, we've seen mothers who have or you know, or individuals who have suffered strokes or preeclampsia or seizures, or, you know, honestly, long term health issues because of what pregnancies have done to their body. And now if they want the choice to say, you know, I'm not ready, they don't have it anymore. So we really don't have a choice. We have to start expanding our services into these other settings, making our neurologic clinical specialists in the hospital, see people before they have a stroke before they have a seizure actually provide services that can help someone monitor their own signs and symptoms after they've had now a procedure or given birth or even had, you know, a stillbirth, unfortunately, because the doctor had to decide, well, yes, now we will perform the abortion because you know, your health is like on the cliff, I mean, we're going to be seeing these and we just have to prepare. And if it's not our organizations that are laying the foundations, we will, we'll take it from here,   52:15 we need to reach out across so many barriers, like athletic trainers, they're gonna see the young girls, they're gonna see their track stars that is not reds, it's pregnancy. And it could be a very short lived traumatic pregnancy, in girls that are just not develop. They're developed enough to get pregnant, they're not developed enough to carry a healthy baby to term. Kind of just makes me like. But Rebecca is right as we don't get to have an opinion on the right or wrongness of this, we have a problem ahead of us now, that that is happening already, as we speak, that people are going to need help. I love that we have more technology than my grandma did when she was fighting this battle. And we have YouTube and we have podcasts and we have ways to get information out. But we need to use every single one of them in our sports colleague or athletic trainer colleagues. They need to know the signs. Because they may be the ones that see it first.   53:21 Yeah. And Sarah as being the most recent new mother here. What kind of care did you get when you were in the hospital?   53:36 I was sitting here thinking about that. And I mean, I will say that the care I had while I was there, that I had an uncomplicated delivery in spite of a very large baby. And I was fortunate enough to leave the hospital without needing additional help. But I wasn't offered physio. Nobody really they're just really curious to make sure you're paying enough. And that's about it if you're the mom and my six week visit was actually telehealth and that was the last time I had contact with a health care professional regarding my own health so it is minimal even if you're a very fortunate white woman in a large metropolitan area and but I'm working now further north and with a pro bono clinic clinic and in an area where we do a lot of work with communities of color and I'm I'm like I honestly don't even know the hospitals up here yet. But I'm gonna I have so many post it notes of things that are gonna start happening and start inquiring because Rebecca like we need to get into the hospitals like if if I can Do that. And honestly, up until now, like my world and entropy was, and pre this decision was it, there's so many people out there who need help with pelvic issues in general, like we can do this forever. And we set our clinic up so that people who weren't doing well in the traditional health care system could find us and afford us. At least some people could, I realized that it wasn't in companies, encompassing everybody who could possibly need help, but we were doing trying to figure out another way. And so again, like, like, again, the offer of assistance I got was minimal. But also I didn't need much. And I was in a position where also, I knew I could, I could ask for it if I wanted it. And I could probably get it if I needed it. And I'm just thinking about, again, some of the communities I'm interacting with now, in some of my other roles and responsibilities, and I cannot wait to take a look and see, how can we get in there? How can we be on that floor? How can we? What What can we make, make happen like, because it needs to happen, these are these, this is the place where I'm scared to start seeing the stats,   56:21 wouldn't it be amazing if you can get the student clinic part of that somehow somehow and get, you know, young beyond that bias, but younger, most younger but but like the physicians the the in training the PTs and training the PAs the you know, and get like Rebecca had said, let's get let's get the team up to speed here, because there aren't enough pelvic health therapists already. And they're heavens, we need, we need to get everybody caught up.   56:58 And there's so much I was telling you that being around student health care, providing your future health care providers is really energizing and also really interesting. I mean, the ideas that come up with in the in the connections they make and and the proposals they make are just amazing. But two things that I've noticed that I think probably we run into in the real world, real world, outside school world as well, is one. The that's being able to have enough people and enough support to keep it sustainable. So you have this idea, you have the proposal, you made the proposal, how are we going to keep it going and finding the funding or the energy or the volunteers to keep it going. Things ebb and flow, you get a great proposal, you're like yes. And then I literally today was like, I wonder what's up with that one, because it was an idea for a clinic to help was basically for trans people to our tree transitioning and might not have the support that they need. And also I was reached, they come up here for women's health clinic. And I'm going to reach out to them now. Because this again, this decision changes that because it is a pro bono clinic that they would like to set this up in and before it was going to be much more more wellness. And now it could turn out to be essential health care. So that's one thing. But then the other thing is still the education, that in school, we're not taught about what everyone else can do. And I think again, figuring out a way to make sure that future physicians really know what physical therapists have to offer, especially in this space. Most people know that if their their shoulder, their rotator cuff repair, they should send them to pt. But really, we need to get in with OB GYN news, we need to get in with the pediatricians. And I don't want to say unfortunately, but in this regard, unfortunately, we're going to have to really make sure that they know what we're doing. And again, I'm already kind of trying to think like how can we make this just part of how we do health care.   59:20 So I think I'm following in your footsteps by going into education and by by being a part of our doctor of physical therapy programs. You know, I especially chose the program in Washington state not because you know, of just the the the opportunity to teach doctors or incoming doctors but it was also an opportunity to teach doctors of osteopathic medicine and occupational therapy therapists. It was you know, very intimate program and opportunity to make pelvic health or women's health or reproductive health apart of cardiopulmonary content, a part of neurology content, a part of our foundations a part of musculoskeletal and not a special elective course that we get two days of training on, I had the opportunity to literally insert our care, our specialized and unique care and every aspect of the curriculum, as it should be, because we are dealing with, you know, more or less issues that every therapist generalists or specialists should be equipped to handle. So in the wake of Roe v Wade, to me, this is an opportunity unlike any other for pelvic health therapists to really get into these educational spaces where incoming doctors are, you know, MDS or PA programs, or NP programs are our therapy practices, and start where students are most riled up and having those ideas so that they can go out and become each one of us, you know, go into hospitals and say no, to obstetric units being ignored, go into hospitals and give and services to physicians. You know, we need to create more innovators in our field and education is the way to do that.   1:01:12 I just wrote down check Indiana and Ohio, and then I wrote border clinics, because Because Illinois is a it's like a not a prohibition state. Having so many flashbacks, because Illinois, is, is currently dedicated to maintaining health care access for everyone. We have cities that are on the border. And I was thought of that when you were talking, Sarah, because you're up next to Wisconsin now. But we have we have the southern part of the state and the western part of the state. And those those border towns are going to have a higher influx than I will see in Chicago, maybe. But I would anticipate that they would,   1:01:56 you know, and again, this is where laws are murky. Every state is different. It's I mean, it's a shitshow. For lack of better way of putting it I don't think there's any other way to put it at this point. Because that's kind of what what we're dealing with because no one's prepared, period. So as we wrap things up, I'll go around to each of you. And just kind of what do you want the listeners to take away? Go ahead, Sandy,   1:02:33 this is this is frustrating and new, and we're not going to abandon you. We're gonna figure it out and be there to help.   1:02:41 I would say that our clinics are still safe, it is still a safe place for you to open up and tell us what you wouldn't tell anybody else. It's still safe with us. And we still have you as an entire person with all of your history. We are still treating you based on what you are dealing with and not. We will not be dictated by anybody else. Our care won't be mandated or dictated by anybody. Sarah, go ahead.   1:03:22 What I would say is I would echo your safe. If you need help, there is help. And I'm sorry, that that this just made it harder than it already was. And I would say to healthcare providers, please let remember, let us remember why we're doing what we're doing. And, you know, we do need to stand up, we do need to continue to provide the best care for our patients. Because to be honest, I've been thinking like, I think it's a legal question. It's a professional question. But ultimately, if we can't give the best care possible, I'm not sure I should do this.   1:04:01 Ahead, Rebecca,   1:04:02 for our health care providers, in the wake of Roe v. Wade, being overturned, wherever we are, you know, as an organization or on our stance, if we believed in the autonomy of an individual to know all of the information before making a decision, then we still believe in the autonomy of an individual to know all of the information that is best for their body. And that is the oath that's the that's the that's the promise that we've made as professionals to people that we're serving, and to the people that we're serving to those who are there listening to this. You have safe spaces with providers that you trust and we're going to continue to educate one another, our field and also you we're going to put together resources that really bring During this education to your families so that you don't have to feel like you're in the dark and you're alone. This is not something that is per individual or per person. This affects everyone. And we're dedicated to advocating for you.   1:05:18 Perfect, and on that we will wrap things up. Thank you ladies so much for a really candid and robust discussion. I feel like there are lots to do. I think we've got some, some great ideas here. And perhaps with some help and some grassroots movements, we can turn them into a reality. So thank you to Rebecca to Sarah to Abby and to Sandy, for taking the time out of your schedules because I know we're all busy to talk about this very important topic. So thank you all so so much, and everyone thanks so much for listening, have a great couple of days and stay healthy, wealthy and smart.   1:06:03 Thank you for listening and please subscribe to the podcast at podcast dot healthy, wealthy smart.com And don't forget to follow us on social media

What if we knew which patients would have severe Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis? And which wouldn't? How about if we could tell which drug would work best in which patient? Knowing these things would change how inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is diagnosed and treated. Plus, more importantly: it would improve lives. Dr Andres Hurtado-Lorenzo, Vice President of Translational research and IBD Ventures at the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation explains biomarkers and how they may play into the future of how IBD is diagnosed, managed, and treated.

From Claire: I am 66 years young, and have 4 adult children, 11 grandchildren, and 2 great-grandchildren.  I am blessed!  I live in the Bay of Plenty Tauranga New Zealand. My health issues really began in my early years.  I grew up on a high carb/sugar diet and eventually learned to control my weight with calorie restriction sometimes as low as 700 calories a day.  My weight would fluctuate between 7 1/2  to 9 1/2 stone during my 20's – 40's.  I realize now my body was starving for nutrients, and I was continually hungry. I became interested in healthy eating during my 20's and by my 30's I developed gut issues like bloating and discomfort, then developed acid reflux during my pregnancies which continued afterwards. I tried to heal these stomach issues by introducing more healthy foods like home-made yogurt, home -made bread (including grinding my own flour from grain) and eliminating refined sugar and ate low fat.  This helped for a while.  But as I got older I found I had to eliminate many more foods. Firstly coffee, then  gluten and some vegetables.    I included meat in my diet as I did not agree with the vegan philosophy, which began with Seventh Day Adventist ideology which totally ignores much of Scripture where God approves the eating of meat.  However I generally ate meat in small portions. By 2020 I was having to eliminate many more foods as my adverse reaction to many foods was increasing. I had now eliminated everything except, rice, rice-cakes, eggs, broccoli, capsicum, fish, and meat. My symptoms intensified until I finally developed microscopic colitis.   I lost a lot of weight although I was already thin.  I became very concerned as although I tried to function normally, not wanting to tell anyone of my embarrassing condition, I could not leave the house unless I had not eaten at least 6 hours prior. Finally after months of trying to remedy it on my own I went to the Dr and was tested for giardia, and for any bacterial infection.  He did blood tests also, but nothing was revealed. Eventually my doctor suspected microscopic colitis.  I did not want to go on steroid medication and told my Dr I would like to try to find another solution first.  I didn't know how I was going to achieve this, but while in the supermarket during my weekly shop I was suddenly aware of the fact that there was nothing there I could eat.  So I prayed desperately right there (silently) and said "God what can I eat?"  As I was leaving with an empty trolley, I felt ‘impressed' to go back and buy a cooked chicken.  It did not appeal to me as I felt nauseous, but I purchased it anyway.   Over the next couple of days I forced myself to eat it, but I still felt so sick.  However it got me thinking that if God had indeed impressed on me to buy it,  then it was for good reason.  So I began researching about meat which thankfully led me to discover Carnivore eating. I began eating just meat and rice, thinking I needed the carbs for energy as I  suddenly developed extreme fatigue.  But after two weeks I decided to stop the rice and do Carnivore properly.  Amazingly....within 24 hours my chronic symptoms ceased.  Just stopped!  I could not believe it!    Since then I have learned the benefit of including more fat, salt and the inclusion of magnesium via foot soaks to relieve leg cramps.   I thrive on fatty lamb,  and eat some beef each day.  At this stage I don't eat butter but would like to include it again soon. During the 6 months I've been fully carnivore I've had one flare-up with symptoms when I introduced egg yolk back into my diet.  So I quickly eliminated that.  My fatigue is gone and most days I feel great.  I'd say I am 95% healed,  and am hopeful the Raynaud's symptoms I have will heal too.
