Karen Widaman is a 62-year-old certified dog trainer and owner of a large dog training company from Glendora, California. Despite working in a high-risk industry, Ms. Widaman was unaware of that her contact with thousands of dogs increased her Lyme vulnerability. In 2015, she began to suffer from stomach, foot, and hand pain her doctors believed to be unrelated symptoms in part because she tested negative for Lyme disease. Unrelenting symptoms forced to treat with a plethora of medical doctors including internists, neurologists, gastroenterologists, oncologists, and infectious disease doctors. In desperation, she sought out a “natural doctor” who retested her for Lyme utilizing a test from IGeneX. Testing positive for Lyme disease offered Ms. Widaman a path forward. The Integrated Natural Medical Clinic began treatment with herbal supplements utilizing the Buhner protocol and ozone therapy followed up with stem cell, nutritional therapies, and SOT therapy. Today, Ms. Widaman is pain free and functioning at a high level utilizing supportive therapies to reduce inflammation and support for her immune system. If you would like to learn why a professional dog trainer had to leave the old dogs in the medical community to learn new tricks from an integrative medical discipline to heal, then tune in now!

Jeni Quante is a 29-year-old Registered Nurse (RN) and chronic illness patient advocate from San Antonio, Texas. She has earned high regard from the Lyme disease community for producing creative educational content on social media platforms including TikTok and Instagram. Ms. Quante was born with Congenital Lyme disease, but the undiagnosed illness did not become debilitating until the age of 14. Her disability activated her medically educated and trained parents who dedicated all their resources to advocating for their daughter. In total, the family visited “well over 100” doctors before she was diagnosed by a primary care physician. Her diagnosis took more than 12 years. Despite debilitating symptoms, Ms. Quante graduated from college and nursing school, earning a BS, BSN, OCN, and RN. She also dedicated time to “engaging others in the chronic illness community and found some wonderful lymies who kept her going through the hell”. This far, her 3-year treatment plan has included the use of several western and eastern treatment modalities, including, hyperthermia, SOT, herbs/tinctures, detox work, disulfiram, and biofilm busters.

Have you ever considered the air quality in your home? If you're like most people, the answer is probably no. But did you know that the air inside your home could be up to five times more polluted than the air outside? And if you're a woman in her midlife years, that's something to take very seriously.   Therese Forton-Barnes is an indoor air quality expert and she's joining us today on the Hormone Prescription Podcast to talk about the dangers of indoor air pollution and what we can do to protect ourselves.   Therese is the Household Toxins Health Specialist and the Head Guru at The Green Living Gurus. She spreads the awareness of chemical exposure that could cause many autoimmune illnesses, cancer, and other ailments through her Green Living with Tee weekly podcast, her blog, the Green parent pioneer coaching program for families with children, and Tee's organics line of household cleaners and products.   In this episode, you will learn: The dangers of indoor air pollution The things that contribute to indoor air pollution The toxins and carcinogenic chemicals found in indoor air How to protect yourself from indoor air pollution What you can do to improve the air quality in your home   So if you're concerned about the air you're breathing, make sure to tune in and learn everything you need to know about indoor air quality and take action to protect your health.   (00:00): Plan your life. Like you will live forever and live your life. Like you may die tomorrow. Therese's mom.   (00:08): So the big question is how do women over 40, like us keep weight off, have great energy balance. Our hormones in our moods feel sexy and confident and master midlife. If you're like most of us, you are not getting the answers you need and remain confused and pretty hopeless to ever feel like yourself. Again. As an OB GYN, I had to discover for myself the truth about what creates a rock solid metabolism, lasting weight loss, and supercharged energy. After 40 in order to lose a hundred pounds and fix my fatigue. Now I'm on a mission. This podcast is designed to share the natural tools you need for impactful results. And to give you clarity on the answers to your midlife metabolism challenges, join me for tangible natural strategies to crush the hormone imbalances you are facing and help you get unstuck from the sidelines of life. My name is Dr. Kyrin Dunston welcome to the hormone prescription podcast.   (01:04): Hey everybody. Welcome back to another episode of the hormone prescription with Dr. Kyrin. I'm so glad that you've joined me today. My guest today is Therese Forton Barnes and she is a toxin guru, or we're gonna be talking about the dangers of indoor air quality will be detailing the potential hazards to your indoor air quality and talking about what you can do about it. Her mom is the one who shared that quote that I offered in the teaser plan. Your life like you will live forever and live your life. Like you may die tomorrow. And I absolutely love that. I think it really speaks to addressing toxins in your life. They are long acting, and their effects temporarily are very delayed. So you wanna plan like you're gonna live forever, but you wanna live like you may die tomorrow. So we're gonna tell you the things you need to go in and get rid of to improve your indoor air quality and your health. I'll tell you a little bit about her and then we'll get started. Therese is a household toxins health specialist, and she's the head guru at the Green Living Gurus. She spreads awareness of chemical exposure that could cause many autoimmune illnesses, cancer, and other elements through her green living with tea weekly podcast, her blog, the green parent pioneer coaching program for families with children and teas organics line of household cleaners and products. Welcome Tee. Thank you for having me today. Looking forward to our chat.   (02:42): I love talking about toxins because there's so many of them and I think that it can be overwhelming when people hear about this topic to think, oh my God, how do I even begin to detoxify my life? My home, my car, my work, all the things that they need to detoxify. And I love that we've decided to focus on indoor air quality. I don't think that a lot of people realize how vital this is. Why is this so important Therese?   (03:14): So our indoor air is potentially two to 100 times more polluted than the outdoor air. And these are reports that have been put out by the environmental protection agency. And the reason why our indoor air in our homes, our offices, you name it is because our homes are now built to be airtight. Everybody wants to keep the air in to conserve energy. And the problem is you're not getting enough circulation throughout the home and enough clean air coming through your home. But the worst part about it is the amount of products that are being used in your home. Whether it's cleaning supplies, laundry, detergent, dry cleaning, coming in furniture. That's been sprayed with anti fire retardants and it goes on and on and on. And you're breathing these chemicals in all day long in your home. And so the indoor air in your home is just as important as your outdoor air or as important as a food you're eating too. So these are just things I love to focus on because it's something that people don't realize it, that they need to really look at their indoor air.   (04:29): I think that's so true. And you, you highlighted a couple points. I wanna just emphasize that most people focus on aspects of the environment. They have no control over, which is outdoor air quality mm-hmm can you move? Sure. I had a patient a few years ago who lived in the middle of Iowa in the middle of farm country, and there were pesticides in her air and she knew it was a problem. And there was really nothing she could do about it other than move from where she lived while she wasn't paying as much attention to the air quality inside. And oh, when we did, she found out she had moldy things in her house that were affecting her health. So I think this is really where you have a large degree of control to change the outcome. And I also wanted to highlight when you were talking, I was thinking about a lot of people are very familiar with the discomfort that comes from rereading air inside a mask over and over again, since we've had to do it for the past few years.   (05:33): And so think about that, your house is really like a mask, a big mask that you live in. And so if you have bad breath and you're breathing it in and out through a mask, you're getting that bad breath over and over again. It's the same in your house. If you have poor quality air, all the windows and doors are shut and they builders pride themselves on a well sealed home. That's energy efficient that really can have detrimental effects for us in terms of if we have poor air quality, we're rebreathing it over and over and over again. So let's start tea with the biggest offender. What is the number one offender you would say in the indoor air quality space that could potentially harm people?   (06:21): Well, in my mind, it is the cleaning products people are using because the cleaning products, people are using them every day, potentially spraying some cleaning products on counters almost every day to clean up your kitchen, whether it's to floor. And then if you have children or dogs, so they're even cleaning more. And many of the chemicals in these commercial cleaning supplies have extremely toxic ingredients in them and many have cancer-causing ingredients in them. So those are getting into your lungs. They're getting into the dust, that's on the floor in your house, that's regenerating throughout your home, and you're not getting rid of those chemicals in your house because you're using them. It's not like you're washing with water right afterwards, too. That, and goes along with that is also cleaning supplies in a SA in a different category, but it's your laundry detergent. So that's a, another cleaning supply, right?   (07:27): But that is now in addition to the chemicals that you're potentially using to clean your clothes, you're also breathing in potentially chemicals coming from your clothes, from your sheets. They could be out guessing all day long in your home. You could be breathing them in when you even leave the house. And they're venting. They're also venting into your house at some point, at some level, I know they vent outside, but you still can get those fumes inside your house. So those products, those chemicals, and if you think about walking down a laundry, I mean, a supermarket aisle where all your cleaning supplies are and you smell that smell. Those are all chemicals out guessing from all of those cleaning products that literally that's, what's happening in your home, too. Those chemicals just about gas.   (08:21): So let's dive into specifically, what are the toxins and carcinogenic agents in cleaning products? Let's start there. And I will add that, you know, I read that that years ago, Madison avenue was trying to figure out how to increase sales or promote their product above others in terms of cleaning products and particularly laundry. And they discovered that the first thing that people did when their laundry came out of the dryer to see if it was clean, was they smelled it. And that's how this whole perfusion of yeah. Smells. And so when you walk down the aisle, you can smell it. But I think most people smell that and they go, oh, that's the smell of clean . Yeah, right. So can you break down? What are the toxins and carcinogenic agents and cleaning products and laundry detergents?   (09:14): Well, one category is VOCs VOCs of volatile, organic compounds. Now there are hundreds, if not thousands of different chemicals that make those volatile organic compounds up, and those are ones that are just dangerous to get into your system. And you're breathing them every day. Now, the list of chemicals that potentially are made up of those VOCs and also all the other com is endless. I mean, there's been ammonia. Everybody knows ammonias in some cleaning products. There's, I mean, I can't, I'd have to pull up my, I have a list of all the chemicals that I could tell you that are in there. And I actually have that those chemicals that you can avoid in my free guide on my website, that I know you're offering your listeners. And it's a great guide because it lists what ingredients you should look for. The top ingredients you should look for in these cleaning supplies that are potentially getting into your house.   (10:15): So, and benzene is another one that has been known to be in some products. The biggest thing, if anybody wants to make a change to look for in cleaning products and in laundry detergent, and you hit the nail on the head is when they smell something, they think that that's a fresh smell. Unfortunately, that's the word fragrance. And that's a fragrance that is in those products. That is, they think that that's a lemon fresh smell or a lavender fresh smell. But unfortunately there is most likely no lavender and no lemon in there. And if there is, and they say that it's ascended with lavender oil, they only have to have 2% lavender in there. Unfortunately, many of the cleaning products, many of the laundry detergents have so many chemicals in them. They have to put fragrance in them to kill the smell of the chemicals that you're cleaning with.   (11:12): So you're getting twice as many chemicals as you really need to be cleaning with and putting in your laundry, but the word fragrance and people don't understand this when they buy products. And even it's in shampoo, it's in deodorant, fragrance is a trade secret. And it goes back that in 1940s, when the perfume industry and specifically Chanel number five was one of the companies that got our government to create this trade secret, because they did not want anybody knowing what was in their perfume. And so they said, okay, well, if you put the word fragrance on there, you do know how to detect, say what is in your product. This holds true today, still that law, that anybody can make a product, put the ingredients in there. But if you put the word fragrance on there, you do not have to tell them what's in there.   (12:00): Well, fragrance is made up of a laundry list of different chemicals in it. And lately three different studies were done that they found benzene in fragrance. And benzene is a common ingredient in fragrance and benzene is a known carcinogen. So some of them potentially cause cancer, but that causes cancer and they found it in a sunscreen recently. So the list goes on and on and on. But if you can get away from the fragrance, you're making a great step in the right direction to reduce your toxic load inside your home. And that goes with candles too. I mean, everybody wants something that smells fresh. We all associate with that freshness with probably growing up and our mothers and whatever they cleaned with. But unfortunately in the past 40, 50 years, clean is not what clean should be. And the chemical company has really created this mess in my mind to make us think that that is the way a house should smell. And it's, unfortunately that's not clean. That's unfortunately making your house more toxic and dirty for your body.   (13:18): So true. And everybody loves a new car smell, new house smell. And I say, run from the new car and the new house. So yes, the VOCs ammonia, benzene fragrance, which are mostly made from petroleum byproducts. So you wouldn't sit there sniffing gasoline at the gas station, nor do you wanna spray it on your fabrics at home or clean with it. And a question that I don't think a lot of people get is. And my kids used to say this to me all the time when they were growing up, when I kind of got on the bandwagon. Finally, when I saw the light about my own health at midlife, and I became trained in anti-aging metabolic and functional medicine and realized that toxicity was a problem. Cuz as a regular MD, we are taught, these are not issues. And that's how most of America and most industrialized countries are operating that this isn't a problem. But can you talk about cuz the next question my kids used to say, well, they wouldn't allow it. They wouldn't allow it. If it was toxic, they wouldn't allow it. If it caused cancer and I'd say, well, who's they to my kids first off. But I find this is the case with a lot of adults. They really think that there's some regulatory body that would not allow dangerous chemicals to be in our cleaning products. Can you address that?   (14:40): Yeah. And this is a very common, I hear it all the time and what I try to get people to understand is a little bit of history. Cuz sometimes history helps people understand why things are the way they are today. You know the fragrance thing. Oh. And people start understanding, wow, I can see where that happened, but why did that happen? Well, in the United States, we have a law here that your product is safe until it is proven guilty in the European union. It's opposite. They have to prove a product is safe before it can even go on the market. So you take these products, let's just take the sunscreen. I mentioned that many sunscreens actually for that matter, they got pulled off the market last fall. They were all on the market with benzene in the product. Now that would've never passed in the European union because they would've never been able to prove that that was safe.   (15:38): But unfortunately these companies here local in us, they now their back paling like, oh, we didn't know benzene was in our product and denying it. Of course they're gonna deny it. But so that is the biggest problem I see with products that is not food. Food has to be proven, safe and pharmaceuticals in that matter before it goes onto the market. So we have to be our own watchdogs here in the United States. We have to look at our labels. We have to read our ingredients. We have to know, unfortunately, no EPA is not protecting us when it comes to that. They are not. The FDA is when it comes to the food because as best they can, you know, I battles, I pick with that too. But with the EPA and all these products that are on all the shelves that we are buying in the grocery store, in the pharmacy, we have to look and see what we are using because either you are going to trust the company or you have to trust yourself because this, these have not been approved for human consumption or for cleaning. They might be say that they get rid of bacteria, but they are not going through all the ingredients and all those products and making sure that they are safe and the companies are not either.   (16:57): Yeah. The other thing I don't think a lot of people get is that even the individual ingredients that could potentially be toxic may have a low level of toxic potential, but nobody has studied the cumulative additive effect of these toxins together. And a hundred years ago, we might come in contact with just a couple chemicals in our lifetimes. And now we have 85,000 new chemicals since 1950. And no one has looked at the effect on newborns or uh, fetuses or women who are pregnant or children or adults, the cumulative additive effects and interactive effects of these toxins. So I remember that being one of the most impactful sources of information that I learned during my fellowship training was just, we're kind of in the wild, wild west when it comes to chemicals, we're in a live human experiment. Yeah. Where we're saying, okay, let's take the population of the world and let's dump 85,000 new chemicals and let's see what happens because they really haven't been vetted. So now we've talked a little bit about the cleaning products, the double problem of not only are they, the cleaning products, agents themselves potentially toxic or carcinogenic, but then you add on top the fragrance. When I see that word, I run and laundry detergent. Now talk about other laundry substances like dryer sheets and bleach and things like that.   (18:39): Dryer sheets, oh, dryer sheets. Oh, I can smell dryer sheets when I walk by vent. And when I walk by a person, I now have my husband. He can smell them on people these days, but dryer sheets are another one dryer sheets. You will not find the ingredients on a dryer sheet. Dryer sheets have known carcinogens in them. They are all chemicals that basically coat your clothing with these chemicals. So they don't stick together. Unfortunately they're loading them with other chemicals' fragrance to put them in there because those chemicals that they are coating your clothes with, they have to offset those to the smell of that chemical. So it's just like one bad thing after the next with dryer sheets. So that's another definitely bleach another, I mean you have to pick your poisons right. To try to get rid of everything right away. No, but you start with the most important things like getting rid of the dryer sheets, replacing them with wool dryer balls and some essential oils in those wool dryer balls. If you really want some sense and slowly getting rid of things that could potentially be affecting your breathing, which is our most important thing I'm addressing here because the indoor air in your home right now is so polluted potentially. So definitely dryer sheets are a big, big no-no in my book.   (20:05): So what dryer balls, can you talk a little bit about what those are and what they do and how they work and also the use of essential oils if people really love that fresh scent?   (20:17): Yeah, absolutely. I mean, I use dryer balls. I don't have much static, fortunately, because I don't have any chemicals in my laundry and washing machine or dryer because the chemicals will make your clothes tick even more. It's just a double edged sword. Speaker 3 (20:35): I have to say. I don't think that's a coincidence, right? So the more problems Madison avenue can give you the need to solve. And if they make your clothes, if the chemicals make them more static clingy, oh, well then you need something to treat the static clinging. I mean, that's true with women's hormones after they started using E equivalent or horse estrogen also known as Premarin in the beginning of the 19 hundreds for women, while then they created the problem of, um, uterine cancer. And instead of going back and saying, well, probably this was misguided, they just created a pro Jin to counteract the effects to prevent uterine cancer. So that is the way of industry, right? We live absolutely in that type of a capitalist society. That's always looking for advantage. So I wouldn't be surprised if there was some engineering to actually increase the static clinging. So you actually have to have dryer sheets.   (21:33): Absolutely. And it all goes all big circle of money and pharmaceutical industry and the chemical companies. And they're all tied into one another and it's a monster and it toxic. And we have to really, again, rely on ourselves and people like you and me and many other people out there that really are knowledgeable stepping back and looking at the whole big picture. Why is all this happening? I look at cancer. I mean, my aunt had ovarian cancer and this is originally why I really got so involved in this. And she was so healthy, but she used baby powder every single day in her private parts. And she got ovarian cancer and now low and behold baby powder causes ovarian cancer and it's still on the market. So I always look at where cancer has came from, look at where it is now. Do you hear any big cancer Institute talking about preventing cancer?   (22:34): We have a major one here. No, cause it's such a humongous industry. And the pharmaceutical industry feeds that industry. And I personally don't think they want it to go away because it would put out so many people out of business. I try talking about cancer prevention all the time, because I want people to prevent using chemicals in their lives that potentially can cause cancer or are known to cause cancer. But they don't talk about that. Unfortunately. And same it with Endocet disrupting chemicals. We could talk about that forever too. And what they're doing to kids, hormones and boys and the mess that's causing with kids' bodies and mimicking their estrogen and progesterone. So I think people get scared and I even have some best friends who are like, oh, it's so overwhelming. And I try to talk them through it. And it's just, you make little changes and the people that I've helped and a lot of different clients, you just take one step at a time.   (23:37): And it usually is starting with your cleaning, starting with your laundry, detergents, getting rid of that fragrance. Once you start there, then you're gonna be, be more aware. You're gonna start. I get people sending me, oh look, you told me about these PFAS chemicals in my non-stick cookware that and they see an article and then they start making changes on their own, which I love seeing. I sort of get the ball rolling with them and then they're aware of it. And then they start seeing more and more things reports coming up. Luckily now it's all over the place. There's so many things going on out there that people are starting to realize how toxic so many of these products are, but it's taking those baby steps and really just reading ingredients and knowing what you're putting on your skin. You wouldn't eat those chemicals. Why would you be putting them on your skin?   (24:29): So, and you made it such a great point. It's the cumulative effect. They might say that these chemicals in the lotion you're using is fine because it's, you know, low dosage. But how is that mixing with the chemical you're putting on your hair or your deodorant? They're all getting into your system somehow and through your skin or breathing or eating and how are they mixing in your body? I don't wanna know that, but I just think that this is just time for people to start looking at how they are in taking any of these chemicals. And you really have to look at everything you're using because we are living in a toxic world and it's getting worse.   (25:13): Yeah. I think the other thing most people don't realize is the temporal nature of toxin exposure to time to disease is so long. The lead time that nobody associates that, oh, when they get cancer, they're not thinking about the 30 years that they use dryer sheets and a toxic laundry detergent. Nobody that doesn't flash before your eyes. Right? Most of us think genetics, which is really only five to 10% of cancer. It's what, whether we turn our lifestyle, turns those genes on or not. So there's so many exposures and they are over such prolonged periods of time that no one gets this Eureka moment of, oh my God, it was the dryer sheets. Right. Which is fortunate and unfortunate. I mean, you know, think toxins that are that quickly, identifiable are usually not legal for human use or consumption, but it makes it challenging for us. Let's step onto. So you said cleaning products, laundry, detergents, and laundry agents. What would the next category in the indoor air quality space?   (26:29): Well, I mentioned candles candles. I'd like to bring up candles. And Kyrin on that last note that you just said, it's just this past weekend. I was at one of my best friend's homes and I was trying to get her to get a reverse osmosis system and, and talking her through how toxic our water can be, which we could talk about that too. But, and then I always am helping her at her house. She's like, oh, we're fine now. I mean, none of us have cancer now. And that's exactly what you just said. You don't wanna think about, you wanna prevent as much as possible. And I had to convince him like Kathy, so all the kids are going away to college, blah, blah. And like, you have to, if you really want to try to decrease your toxic load, you've gotta look at everything.   (27:12): So it just hit me when you said that, like, that's so true. I mean, even though you're, we're, I'm almost 60, but you don't want cancer when you're 70, do you? I mean, we all don't want cancer. We all don't want illnesses and it's trying to prevent all these illnesses and not just, I feel like it's Russian roulette, we're all playing Russian roulette with all these products we're using. So candles. Yes. Candles. So many people love candles. Almost everybody loves candles. So many candles can be same thing. The chemicals that they're using in the wax, even if it's soy. So people think, oh, I bought a soy candle. It's okay. That's not necessarily true. And also the wick can be led. So if you're burning fragrance in your house with a lead wick, you are burning chemicals in the air while these candles are lit in your home.   (28:08): I did not know that the wicks could be lead. Oh my gosh.   (28:11): I'm yes. That's   (28:12): Crazy.   (28:13): Okay. It is crazy. And the fragrance, oh my God. When I'm in somebody's home with the candle, people are kind of scared for me to go in their home period.   (28:21): Me too. Don't it's a compliment.   (28:24): Oh totally. I enjoy it. I mean, my friends are always like Curring around. I'm like, don't you worry? I'll look it around, but get rid of that candle immediately over there. Cuz I look for candles. They're out gassing. Even if they're not lit with the chemicals that are in them. And again, people have to be careful because many of them will say SCED with essential oils. That's not necessarily fragrance free. So again, it only has to have 2% essential oils for them to say that on there. So cuz essential oils, which I love, I don't know if I told you this, but I have a cleaning product line. Very basic one that I use essential oils. They're very powerful. They're wonderful. Their cleaning properties are great, but you have to know what you're doing with essential oils too. And they are great and they're great to use in many products. So,   (29:14): So what kind of candle should we be using Tee?   (29:16): Well, there's some good ones out there on the market. Fontana is a great line. Look up Fontana. Fontana is a made safe product. Made safe.org is a fabulous organization. Environmental working group, EWG. Many of your listeners may have heard of them. They're fabulous. ewg.com. You can look on their website and plug in your products to see on a scale of one to 10, what kind of chemicals are in them? But a whole other step up from that is the made safe organization. They analyze products and they, if it's a made safe organization like anything made safe certifies, I don't even look at the label because I know it is made safe. And I know that organization inside and out, so font has gone through the process of having their candles certified. So love Fontana, but there's other ones out there too, but you just have to be careful what you're buying. There's so many sold at farmer's markets. I know that because I'll talk to the people that are making them and what is in it. What are you using? And you just wanna know what you're burning in your home. It's almost the same thing as an air freshener that you're spraying. You gotta look at those chemicals, anything you're spraying in your home, a candle will do the exact same thing.   (30:36): Oh my gosh. Please tell me the next category is   (30:42): Air freshers, air freshers. How about the ones when you get in an Uber or a Lyft and they put those plugins in their vents, almost every single one does it. It makes me insane. I've tried complaining to Uber and Lyft endlessly. It doesn't work, but those or plugins in your house or any kinda spray aerosol can be toxic in itself. But anything you're using to spray in your home is you're breathing it in, period. So if you're smelling anything that can potentially be cancer-causing chemicals or other chemicals that can cause other illnesses.   (31:22): Yeah, this is really my pet peeve. I mean, partially because I had multiple chemical sensitivity a few years ago when I was made sick by a building and breast implants. But also because they're ubiquitous and they're highly toxic. And actually the studies do show that up to a third of people react. But the majority of them do not associate any health reaction with the air freshener, plugin, whatever, wherever the sense comes from because they're ignorant of the causal relationship. And I, I like to say that we're in the air freshener stage of where we were with cigarettes back when I was a kid in the sixties and seventies, right? Yes. Secondhand smoke. Wasn't a thing. Nobody was up in arms about it. And people freely smoked around their kids in the home. And now I know you probably can't go to jail or get a ticket for it, but it's not allowed.   (32:20): Yeah. Yeah. Can't   (32:21): Smoke, endorse. And so I think in another few decades, we'll get there when people wake up to the air freshener problem.   (32:28): Yeah, I totally agree. And some of the same chemicals in cigarettes are also used in air fresheners and cleaning supplies. You are spraying chemicals in your home. I mean, there's no difference to me whatsoever. And you brought up, I often hear, oh, I have a sore throat, or I have a sniffles headache. I know I'll get a sore throat, sniffles headache. If I sleep in a bed with fragrance sheets, like I go to Airbnbs, I have to bring my own sheets, open up the windows. We just went to one and it was so toxic. I couldn't. And they used, I don't oh, she told me they used gain with lavender and that it, it wasn't toxic. It   (33:08): Wasn't. Yeah.   (33:09): I was like, uh, anyway, so I'm just used to bringing my own sheets and pillows and towels now   (33:15): Towels I do too. Oh,   (33:16): Absolutely. A hundred percent. And if I forget them, I go by them. I'd rather have, you know, the new ones than the ones washed in laundry detergent anyway. So we were getting air fresheners.   (33:28): Yes. And I wanna add here, cuz I think you brought up a great point that we should highlight. Some people are sitting here. Going to Kyrin I have no idea what you're talking about. How would I even know if I had a problem in my house? And so I'm wondering if you can expound on that. I mean, I usually tell people, well, if you go out and spend a day at the beach or in the forest, camping or hanging out with friends, and then you come home in your locked envelope, and you notice certain things, nasal stuffiness, sore throat, itchy, watery eyes, itchy skin, maybe even rashes, stomach upset. It can show up as, or irritation. It can show up as mood irritability. I mean, it can be so subtle, and you think, oh, I'm just in a bad mood. Must have been that news report I listened to. And it may very well be that you are getting exposed to toxins in your home.   (34:31): Two other big ones, snoring and also terrible sleeping patterns. And habits are two big ones. I hear all the time and your body has to work so hard, getting rid of these toxins and processing them. So your organs are constantly fighting off toxins. They're made that way. Right. But to do that. And so our bodies are not made to fight off all these chemicals that are coming at us left and right, you walk out the door, you can't help what you're going to encounter, but you can when you're inside. And we like to say, you don't know, you feel bad until you feel better and until you right. They don't know. They really don't. And they think it's the pollen. They think it's, you know, they'll make excuses, or they just have allergies or it's allergy season or a headache. Why do I have a, well, you got a headache for a reason and you gotta listen to your body, even acne for that matter.   (35:36): Your skin's telling you something. And so many of these chemicals, I mean, I talk about cancer all the time, and we hear about them disrupting hormones. They can also be obesity, gens, too. Obesity. Gens are just like what they sound like. They cause obesity. So many of these chemicals make you fat. Many of them could potentially make your skin look older. You look older. So acne, many of them cause, but they all work differently in all of our bodies. Again, we don't know what they're doing to us and how they're mixing, but until you start getting rid of them and starting to clear the way for cleaner, fresher air, cleaner, fresher, and products in your home, I guarantee you especially get rid of fragrance. You will start to feel better and start realizing I hear it from every single person. Like I can't believe, I thought that was lemon fresh. I thought, I can't believe I slept in fragrance sheets for 20 years. Yeah. Okay. You might have felt fine, but what was it doing to your skin? What was it doing to your organ? So   (36:38): Right. What are the other big categories that we need to take a look at in our homes?   (36:43): Well, I mention what you cook your food with what you cook your food with what you store your food in. And of course food is huge. That's a whole, we could talk about food and organic food and making sure you eat as much organic food is possible and stay away from the pesticides that are being sprayed on all these non-organic foods that because once they start spraying them with pesticides, they gotta spray 'em with a lot more. And it's just a terrible cycle out there with Roundup and glyphosate and other chemicals coming on the market to take the place of glyphosate. So food of course, but what are you cooking your food in? So nonstick pans, which a lot of people used to know as Teflon were made with these chemicals, it's a whole series of chemicals called PFAS, P F a S or P F O S. And they're just coming to the surface right now and how toxic these chemicals are. And they're it's inflamed retardant, um, materials that firefighters use. They've used to put it on couches. They used to put it on furniture, on rugs, kids,   (37:45): Kids, sleepwear,   (37:46): Kids, sleepwear, dental, floss, dental floss, look for PFAS, free dental floss and kids, sleepwear and furniture. This is going back to the cigarette companies. The reason why kids slept wear and furniture is being was, but some of it still is being sprayed with fire. Retardants is because the cigarette companies, people were burning, and you know, were coming from the same generation. They fall asleep with their cigarettes in their hands in bed. This is the 1950s and sixties, right? And the government went to the cigarette company said, you need to put something in the cigarette. So they don't burn while people are burning their beds. And the cigarette company came back and said, oh no, we have a better idea. Why don't we spray all the furniture with fire retardant, spray, all the kids, baby clothes to sleepwear with fire retardant, baby's beds with fire retardants. And it's crazy to think about it, but that was the law. That's what   (38:48): They did. No. I'm like let's stop smoking in bed.   (38:51): Exactly. Hello. So that is where, and now you hear about all these firemen getting cancer from this fire. Um, not only from this stuff they use to put out the fire, but these houses that are burning down are loaded with toxic chemicals. So anyway, so, but the pans, when I was getting to the pans, those nonstick pans are made with PFAS chemicals. So I've gone through more people's homes and had them get rid of those pans, especially if they're scratched, which 99% of them are because you're only supposed to use wood on them and not metal. And most people don't use wood all the time. Anyways, I'll give   (39:30): A hundred dollars to anyone listening who has a UNS scratched. Yeah. Uh I pan I can't for over a year.   (39:40): Yeah, exactly. So a green pan is okay. That's a ceramic pan. People like their non-stick pans. The only problem is they last only a few years. So I like stainless steel, the old-fashioned way and my lodge cast iron pans. And I always say your pan does not have to be sparkling clean every single time you use it. If you ever go through a kitchen and look at all their stainless steel pans, it looks used. So that is one of my big things, is what you're cooking with. Because again, people are cooking every day and also those chemicals that you are cooking, those pans, those chemicals can also get in the air in your home as well. So, and what you're storing your food in? I do not like plastic whatsoever. I only use glass to store any of our food in because the chemicals in those plastic containers can leach into your food as well.   (40:32): So, and of course never MWA or plastic if you ever do microwave. So those are the top things that I would do. You can take it to a whole other level. Like I have air quality monitors in my house. So I'm measuring the amount of chemicals that are in my house. It tells me if any chemical is exceeding what it should be in here. And it's usually if, uh, something's brought into the home randomly and then air purifiers are another way that people can reduce the chemicals in your home as well. Dry-clean is another one. Dry cleaning depends on where you dry-clean. But if you have the option of airing out your dry cleaning before you bring it into your house, that is great. Let it out gas in your garage or outside. Especially if you have it sitting in your car and driving with it, open up the windows, those toxic fumes from the dry cleaning can also irritate your lungs as well. And you don't even know it. So,   (41:31): And there are a lot of now, now environmentally friendly, nontoxic, dry cleaners, and a lot of them, you can mail your dry cleaning to them and they will mail it back to you. So you don't have to live near one. Let's talk a little bit more about the air monitor and air purifier, cuz I think if people have listened this far and most of the people in my community, they get that this indoor air quality is a situation and then they wanna know, okay, well, do I need an air quality monitor? And if so, what are my options? And what should I look for? And do I need air filtration? And what should I look for? Can you talk a little bit about that?   (42:09): Yeah, absolutely. So the air quality monitor that I really love, it's called hoo it's, U H O O. You can buy that almost anywhere. I love it because I can monitor it on my phone. It's hooked up to the wifi, but it measures for rayon as well. So in the Northeast where I am in Buffalo, New York, a lot of rayon is in the Northeast. And so it measures for VOCs and another series of chemicals on there for mail to hide. So in my home, it's pretty, you're not gonna find many toxic chemicals in here, but I like having that air quality monitor for a peace of mind. I take it with me too when I can just so I can see, you know, I have fun playing with it. I'll take it to people's homes and show them that,   (42:58): Oh, I bet you are a favored guest.   (43:00): Oh yeah. Oh aren't I though pulling it out of my purse. Well, I always, I'm pretty cautious. I know who I can pull it out with and who I can, but they love it because the shows them like, wow, this really measures. Where do you think the VOCs are coming from? And then we'll look around and there'll be a perfume bottle somewhere close by in the bedroom that could be out guessing into their bedroom. Or, you know, I look at the air quality monitor as for your home. It's like getting your blood work done for your body. You wanna know what's going on in your body. If you have any issues, outstanding issues or something is wrong, right? You go for a physical, the doctor sends you in for blood work. Everything comes back fine. Well this air quality monitor your home is so important.   (43:44): Your air is so important to have it as a peace of mind to know, okay, I'm living in a clean air in my home. So in my mind, it's just, you know, gives me a peace of mind that it's a very clean air in our house. Then the indoor air purifier, which of course was a huge thing for COVID because it was cleaning the air for people and people wanted, I sold a ton of those. I actually represent one here in Buffalo. I love the most, not because it's in Buffalo, but it's Austin air purifier. It's 100% made in the United States here in Buffalo, all the parts, you name it because you have to be careful with that with a lot of things, parts that are made overseas, some of the plastics come out gas in your air purifier while they're running. So you have to be really careful with some of that.   (44:35): So the, it collects 99.9% of bacteria and chemicals and VOCs and from aldehyde. So if you have any chemicals floating around, it will collect those chemicals in the filter, and it's, and there's a lot of other good ones on the market out there. I just love this one the most. And we have one in our bedroom and I'll tell you my husband. I tell people this all the time. I mean, he used to snor so bad. Like I thought the roof was gonna come off the house. And once we installed the air purifier, I can sleep with this Norrie now I barely even hear it. And I called Austin air and I said, could this be possible? It's the air pur where they're like, of course he said, you see those floating dust particles going around when the sun beams in, well, that's what it's collecting. And that can be getting in people's lungs and causing them to snort at night and dust mites and everything else, you know, that you could be sleeping and breathing in amongst the chemicals that could be out guessing in your bedroom from the sheets. So it's just being conscious of what you're taking in is the most important thing. And then trying to get to your house as clean as possible.   (45:45): Yeah. I didn't realize we have gone so long. We're gonna need to wrap up. I did wanna just tie in this quote from your mom that I love plan your life. Like you will live forever and live your life. Like you may die tomorrow. I think that that really speaks to the whole toxin situation. If you're gonna plan, like you're gonna live forever, you need to address these things that you can't see and live your life. Like you're gonna die tomorrow, monitor your air quality, filter the air, get rid of these products. And I think we'd be remiss if we didn't talk about new construction and the dangers there you mentioned for Malda Hyde. I was made sick by a new office that I went and worked in because of the off gassing of the VOCs and their formaldehyde. I was actually rendered where I, I had a toxic and encephalopathy. Wow. Luckily what you was reversible, but can you talk a little bit about that?   (46:44): Yeah. So new build is there's a lot of absolutely. And out gassing of all these products and windows is being made. So you don't have any air leaking in. I'm so happy. I live in 120 year old home where the air is leaking out and leaking in. But so you need air flow in a house. So you could be getting so tired in a home because I hear people all the time, how tired they are, not only you're being tired, but those new from paint to any kind of flooring to what they're putting on the flooring to the, uh, walls to the ceilings. I mean, those are all products that are coded in potentially, uh, harmful chemicals. Now, thank God paints. You'll see all the time, low VOC paint. There are some better products out there building materials that are better products. But I have a, a home inspector that I work with once in a while.   (47:43): And he'll go through and homes just to see for different berries things that you know, he does, but he calls some of the homes. He said some of the homes I go in it they're like coffins. They're sleeping in these homes that no air is getting moving around. They're loaded with all these new products that have chemicals emitting off of them and they emit for a while. It's not something you have to get them out gas for a while. So new builds, I would definitely be concerned. And definitely if you're in a new build, I would absolutely have air purifiers running all the time.   (48:19): Yeah. And don't bring a new baby home to a new build. Please it's just overwhelm their detoxification system. It drives me crazy when I watch HD TV, which is my absolute favorite channel. I love architecture and design and building. And when these people are like, oh, we gotta get the new bill ready. So we bring the baby home and I'm thinking, no, don't do that to your child. And most people are not aware of the dangers of that. So we would be remiss if we didn't discuss it. You know, this actually is in the mainstream information back when they had the hurricane in new Orleans and they brought in all these trailers for people to live in, in temporary housing, I think it was 30% of them got deathly ill for moving into these trailers all at one time. So this was a population study and they discovered it was from the formaldehyde. So because we all move into new homes, popcorn style there's no, it doesn't seem like there's causality, but this was very clear and undeniable. So hopefully this will lead to some building regulation changes. Thank you so much T for the wonderful information, you have a free gift that everybody can access and download top 10 toxins to avoid, uh, where it'll have the link in the show notes.

Just mention makes a wave giants falling strongholds break. There is healing. That's the power that I claim. It's the same, the grave. There's no power. Like the there's a hope that calls our courage in the furnace. 1 (6m 13s): The kind expectations that every prayer I made is on an empty that's the power of that's that's 0 (7m 2s): There's 1 (7m 2s): No pav. Come on church, sing this out. I see you taking ground. I see you. Pressa head you. Power is danger to the enemies camp. You still do miracles. You will do what you said for your the same God. Now, as you've always been spirit, spirit breaking out your kingdom, moving in your big tree, claims the ground at the enemy had you still do miracles. 1 (7m 53s): You do what you for that's it's the same. 0 (8m 21s): There's 1 (8m 36s): Like, 2 (8m 47s): God, we're so grateful Lord for your power Lord. As we ponder the power of the living, God, I, I pray God that we would ponder what that means in our lives, in our relationships Lord, and especially heavy on my heart today or marriages, Lord. So as we take a kind of a Salo moment and just pause, Lord, help us to grab, grab hold of that power for our marriages and for the marriages of those, the people in our lives, Lord God that we love and care for. 2 (9m 37s): So deeply Lord, as we take a moment of pause and I'm gonna stop talking is as you feel led, if you feel like man, God's given you something to pray for a verse word of encouragement, go ahead and speak up loudly so we can hear and agree with you. And we'll just take a moment just as you feel led just as you feel LA 3 (10m 25s): Father, I thank you for your power. I thank you Lord, for your strength and for the strength that you give us father, I thank you father for the relationships in a marriage Lord that you bonded and that you've set forth to be a family father. I thank you, God, that you give us wisdom through your power, that you give us strength through your power and that God that no enemy can stand against us. Father. I just thank you, Lord, that God, in this place, that father, the freedom for you to come to this place and to freely speak Lord and to freely father lead us and guide us. 3 (11m 15s): I thank you, Lord, that God that you open the windows of heaven, that you pour out your spirit on those in this place, that God that you teaches the truth of your word and that father, you give us hope where there is no hope and you give us help. Father. When we feel helpless and father, I just praise your name, that God that we come here to worship you and that we're allowed to do that. And that God that without you, we have nothing, Lord, there's nothing. This world has to offer God without you. So I just praise your name and I worship you. 3 (11m 58s): And I thank you on this day, Jesus and Jesus name. 4 (12m 9s): And I thank you Lord for marriage father. I just pray that we would not look to our spouses as God's father, that we would look to you. We would not expect them to be perfect, that we would not expect them to be anything except for what would happen to. We ask fathers that we see them just as we see ourselves as flawed beings so that everything they bring to the table would be a blessing father because our whole dependents will be upon you and not upon men. And we thank you for our father. We pray for your holy spirit that you deny us strengthen us us because we know that father in the breaking down of the marriage comes to breaking down the country. 4 (12m 56s): We see that happening all over. So I asked father, did your help us stand strong? And I thank you for so to 3 (13m 4s): Thank pray for strength for S for healing, the grace would be extended. God. There would just be 2 (13m 18s): Exceeding health and kindness and grace for one another. Lord, God that we would live together in harmony as husbands and wives, Lord God extending wonderful kindness and grace, God, we're not being kind. Lord. I, I pray that you would challenge us and give us the grace to be kind. When we want to do something different, we want to lash out. We want to say something that will only further harm Lord God. So give us the grace to love unconditionally supernaturally. So everything that you ask us to do in this life requires a supernatural power of the holy spirit, the, the word and the will of God through us to do what you've asked us to do. 2 (14m 6s): So I pray God that we would have greater capacity to believe greater ability to understand what that looks like and how to walk it out. And then just greater fruitfulness as a result of just allowing that to flow and intentionally just moving forward with that grace and power, doing the stuff that you've called us to do. Thank you, Lord. Thank you, Lord. Thank you, Lord. We're gonna sing another song. And for those tuning in online and watching this service, we know that there's a bit of silence on your end and I would just encourage you to take that silent opportunity just to worship and just to be present with the Lord. 2 (14m 52s): I would encourage you not to be put off by that or be distracted by the silence, but just to be present with the Lord during that time, and for us who are gathered, we can't always hear what's being prayed or said or communicated and that's okay. The people around those who are speaking, they hear it. And so we just need to be patient with that process and okay, with that process that God's doing stuff. And even if we can't fully hear by God's grace, we can just be in a worship full place and agree and just see what the Lord will do as we just humbly wait during this time. So we're gonna be doing this Sundays and as part of an act, our active worship toward the Lord. 2 (15m 39s): And so I'm going to step down now we're gonna sing another song and then we'll, we'll keep moving forward. Amen. Let's let's continue to worship 1 (16m 15s): Who's I know that you one who to the, for I got, I need you. 1 (16m 58s): Oh God, my God. I need you now.

Lord, we're here for you. We're in awe of your goodness this morning, God, we just asked that your will would be done in this place. We, we lift up our hearts to you. We offer our hearts to you. We ask that whatever you wanna do in and through our lives, whatever you wanna do in our hearts, whatever you wanna do in our minds, Lord, we, we just give ourselves to you completely, fully, totally Jesus. Because that's the only way we can experience freedom through you is just giving ourselves totally to you. So Lord, we relinquish our rights to our minds, our bodies, our souls, our hearts. 5 (24m 31s): And we just give it to you. Lord, we just ask that you would do your work through us. You'd work in us in Jesus name. Amen. Amen. Alright, you're welcome to take a seat. If you'd like my name's Curtis. It's great to have you all here this morning.

I won't divulge how old he is anyway, but yeah, he's doing amazing things to the tech and obviously you can, he's scheduling all of our team members and stuff and doing a great job. 5 (25m 18s): So thank you Tim.

Let him be for us your word today. 8 (33m 14s): Thank you 2 (33m 15s): Lord. 8 (33m 16s): So Lord bless him. Hold him close in your hand. Thank you, Lord. Give him the wisdom and knowledge that deep pool that Proverbs tells us runs deep. He's been storing up your word in his heart and there's no lack of faith here. Thank 2 (33m 31s): You, Lord. 8 (33m 31s): There's overwhelming openness to your spirit. So healing and strength for the day. Yes, Lord your grace sufficient for every need and pray in Jesus name. Jesus name. Holy spirit come. Thank you, Lord. Amen. 3 (33m 47s): Thank brother chair. 2 (34m 2s): So pastor Jan has been a pastor for decades and decades and decades. He was at the Grover beach Presbyterian church for a long time while I was an associate pastor at crossroads. And then when we planted this church and he resigned in 2008 to do other stuff and to take care of his wife. And so thank you Jan, for praying for me. Appreciate you brother. Thank you very much. So good to see you here today. So very good. Hey, first Peter chapter one, greetings from Peter, as we said last week, Peter is this, you know, the guy who was kind of gruff and tough and always putting his foot in his mouth, always kind of out of step, just a little bit with God's plans until until God really got a hold of him and filled him with this spirit and then wonderful and supernatural things began to take place in Peter's life. 2 (34m 51s): And part of which we see in early in acts, where he preaches and the multitudes come to faith in Jesus. And then we see Peter following Jesus decade after decade after decade, trusting him believing the gospel message and ultimately giving his life for it. As we mentioned last week, crucified, upside down, giving himself to the kingdom because he, he believed it through and through. There was nothing that was going to rattle his faith early on his faith was rattled a bit, but there was something that God did in him. And maybe that's something that God needs to do in us. Maybe you're in a place where it doesn't take much for your faith to be rattled and you need, you need God to do something deeper and more significant and supernatural in your lives. 2 (35m 38s): If you need God to do that, just invite the holy spirit into your life, to do that work and to work, make that work of sanctification real, that work of holiness real in your life. And so we're reading first, Peter today, a man who had waffled a man who was kind of gruff and stuck his foot in his mouth and did things he regretted at times. But then God, but God, and that's, isn't that just the beauty of knowing God we can say with Peter, but God, he rescued me. He sanctified me. He filled me with his power and his grace to do the work that he's called me to do. 2 (36m 20s): He's given me the ability to bounce back and God wants to do that with you as well. If you've struggled, give God the grace allow God's grace to just fill you and wash over you so that you too can bounce back. This letters from Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ called by Jesus. Jesus said to Peter, come follow me. And I will make you fishers of man. I'm writing to God's chosen people who are living as foreigners in the province of poncho Galatia, captia Asia. And Bethia again, these are Roman provinces located in what now is called Turkey. 2 (37m 2s): It's a place called Turkey. And we have a, a missionary in Azure by Jean, which is near Turkey. And we pray for him. And we talked about him last week and I encourage us to continue to pray for Igar in that work in by John. He is working to seek and to save those who are lost, but not just to seek and to save those who are lost, but to equip and release workers into the harvest field so that people might come to faith in Jesus. So I just love it that God has had his focus on that region, that part of the world for thousands of years now, Peter wrote this and now down through this, century's got us still working in that region. 2 (37m 43s): So God is so patient. And if you think God's been patient with you in your life, he, well he has, but this is just his nature and who he is, he's patient with us. So that more would come to faith in him, but also so that we would be sanctified set apart for his kingdom work. It's it, it's a process, a lifelong process that got us faithful and patient to accomplish in our lives. So this is who Peter's writing to verse two, it says, God, the father knew you and shows you long ago as his spirit has made you holy as a result, you have obeyed him and have been claims by the blood of Jesus Christ. May God give you more and more grace and peace and peace. 2 (38m 26s): So who is Peter writing to verse? One says I'm writing to God's chosen people. And we touched on this last week that we wanted to get through the whole message last week, but we weren't able to with everything else, everything else that was going on, good stuff. But we, we get back to it and we're gonna get through the whole thing this week, who is Peter writing to he's writing to God's chosen people, your Bible might say to God's elect. And again, who are the elect of God? The elect of God are those who have been chosen, right? So if we participate in an election, we make a choice. We cast our ballot for a person that we long to see elected. 2 (39m 6s): We choose that person. That's essentially what the election of God means that it means chosen. And by God to abstain salvation through Christ, Christians are called the chosen or the elect of God. And so it brings us to this question, did we choose God? Or did God choose us? Did we choose God? Or did God choose us? We tend to think in Greek ways of thinking, as opposed to a kind of a Hebrew thought, we have this kind of linear process for understanding truth. And we're, we tend to be a little more black and white. We want black and white answers for the theological questions that we have really for all of the questions that we have in life and Jeremy, our youth and family pastor gave me this book recently, it's called the forgotten Jesus, how Western Christians should follow and Eastern rabbi. 2 (39m 60s): And so there's a great portion of script writing in here and I'll just read it to us. It says, and again, this is kind of contrasting Hebrew mindset, Hebrew thinking versus Greek mindset and Greek thinking. They Hebrews and Greeks think about things all together differently. And so as we get a taste or a glimpse into a Hebrew way of thinking, we begin to understand scripture with greater clarity. We have better understanding about the culture in which this truth was communicated and preached and taught and understood. It says here in page 28, the ability to hold multiple options, intention may be why many Western readers of the Bible struggle with paradoxical concepts. 2 (40m 49s): We long to have a single answer to a question or a problem, and we apply this approach to doctrines such as divine sovereignty versus free will the kingdom of God being future versus present and election versus man's responsibility. But these seemingly contradictory doctrines may be congruent. They may be congruent in the Jewish cultural framework that gave birth to Christianity. So if you ask a Jewish man, did God choose you? Or did you choose God? 2 (41m 29s): He will likely say yes. So that's kind of a, a little bit of a backdrop for us to help us understand the complexities of some of these things that we study in our Western culture. We, we just want, we, we wanna see things kind of in a linear way. We want to one plus one equals two, one. We, we just, we want to understand it in that type of a way, but there's paradoxes in scripture. And if we don't understand that there are paradoxes in scriptures and that truth is paradoxical, then we will miss some of the deep truths that are in scripture. So sermon title, did we choose God or did God choose us? 2 (42m 13s): So we're gonna be looking at Arminianism versus Calvinism today. And so we're gonna be looking at the five points of Calvinism and kind of their counterpart, the five points of Arminianism. And we're gonna do our best to try to understand what the Bible talks about when he talking about election. When he's talking about four knowledge, when he's talking about sovereignty, when he's talking about predestination, all of these things. So the five points of Arminianism from Jacob Armen, he was a theologian who lived from 1559 to 1609. Is that better? 2 (42m 54s): Can you guys not hear me? How's that channel? Oh, there we go. Thank you. So this is my tech team over here. Thank you very much. And you guys hear me now. So the five points of arm mini and our Arminianism, the five points of Armen of Arminianism from Jacobus. Armenians are in contrast to the five points of Calvinism. So Calvinism is a theology and often we hear about Calvinism versus Arminianism and they're both they're Theo. They're, they're the theological positions that are created by theologians who have studied God's word and who just happen to come up on two different sides of an argument. 2 (43m 40s): Can we have fellowship with Calvinists as Armenians? Can we have fellowship with Armenians as Calvinists? We better be able to have fellowship because we'll be spending eternity with them forever and ever amens. So sometimes we can get a little dogmatic and say, Hey, I can't as a Calvinist, be a friend with Armenian, or I can't as an Armenian, be a friend with a Calvinist, but man, we have to all fellowship together in any given fellowship, there might be people landing on both sides of the aisle. So Calvinism is a theology. It can be explained simply using a five letter acronym tulip. And so we're gonna unpack tulip today and help us to understand just with greater clarity who God is and what it is that we understand about him. 2 (44m 28s): The set of religious principles is the work of John Calvin. Again, 1509 to 1564, a French church reformer who had a permanent influence on several branches of Protestantism. So Calvinism and Armenians both have five points, right? Let's compare the two, the Armenian five points are human free will. And we'll just take one at a time and just kind of compare the two. And then you can arrive at your own conclusion at the end of it all. And I'll introduce actually a third perspective as well today, just to muddy the waters just a little bit more for us, human free will this states that though a man is fallen. 2 (45m 12s): He is not incapacitated by the sinful nature and can freely choose God. His will is not restricted and enslaved by his sinful nature. So that's kind of, I feel like I need to get back on track here. So as we talk about that, let's understand something called common grace. The term common grace is not found in the Bible, but it's a term that is used to put a label on an aspect of grace. Like the word Trinity is not found in the Bible, but it's helpful in describing who God is. And so common grace refers to the goodness of God. The blessings that flow from God that is, that are common to all people, whether they are believers or UN believers. 2 (45m 60s): So do we understand common grace? So there's blessings and I've got a verse that help us understand it, but there's blessings in this common grace arena that fall on believers and unbelievers. So not all of God's blessings only go to God's people, but there's blessings that we all enjoy. A great example of common. Grace is Matthew 5 43 through 45. It says you have heard the law that says, love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But I say, love your enemies. Pray for those who persecute you in that way, you'll be acting as true children of your father in heaven. And here it is for, he gives sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the, just and on the unjust alike. 2 (46m 45s): So there's the blessings of God that flow sunlight and rain on the good and the evil, the just, and the unjust alike. The five points of Calvinism can be remembered using the acronym tulip. So T stands for total depravity. So an Armenian would say, Hey, we can choose God. We have the capacity to choose God T for the tulip stands for total depravity. It's the belief. The belief in total depravity takes the view that sinfulness pervades all areas of life and human existence through the fall of man. 2 (47m 26s): Humanity is stained by sin. In every aspect, heart emotions will mind and body. And this means that people cannot are unable to independently. Choose God. They cannot save themselves. God must intervene to save people. And as an Armenian, we would believe that that's true. Cause I tend more toward Armenian than Calvinism. So we would agree with some of the statements that Calvin makes, but we also would take issue with some of the things that he says, Calvin Calvinism insists that God must do all the work from choosing those who will be saved to sanctify, sanctifying them throughout their lives until they die and go to heaven. 2 (48m 16s): So Calvinists cite numerous scripture versus supporting humanities, fallen in simple nature. And we're gonna look at some of those. And we, we agree across the board. If you are a believer in the Lord, Jesus Christ. If you are an evangelical believer, we believe that men are sinners, all have Sinn and fall short of the glorious standard of God, the grace of God. So we, we all fall short of God's standard. Matthew 7 21 says for, from within out of a person's heart and this kind of illustrates the evil of man come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit, less full desires, envy, slander, pride, and foolishness. 2 (49m 3s): All these VI things come from within. They are what defile you. So we agree together, whether you're on whatever, whatever side of the aisle you're on. We agree that we are sinners in need of profound, the profound grace of the Lord, Jesus Christ. So again in Armenian would agree that while this is all true, man is indeed of sinner in need of God's saving grace. God's common grace and the world allow men to make good decisions. So that common grace that we experience in the world allow men and women to make good decisions. So to illustrate that we've all known people who don't know Jesus, but who are good as the world would de describe and define good. 2 (49m 48s): We know people in the world who don't know Jesus, but who are kind compassionate, faithful, generous. All of those things. We could all point to people in our lives who don't know Jesus, but who, who are really, they have a lot of good character qualities in their life. The common grace of God allows a sinful to pray person to choose God because of that common grace there's, there's a work of God in the universe that allows people to even in their broken sinful, to prove, recognize their desperate need for God and able to make a choice. Again, if you wanna look at another theological perspective, you can investigate Molan there's another, a theologian came up with this term or this perspective it's named for its 16th century, Jesuit Louis D. Molina. 2 (50m 45s): So these are arguments that the church has been or debates, arguments, debates that the church has been going around and around about for hundreds and hundreds of years. So when we get to heaven, we'll have it all straightened up for us and cleared up for us. Mullin is a system of thought that seeks you reconcile the sovereignty of God and the free will of man. The heart of Molan is the principle that God is completely sovereign. And man is also free in a libertarian incense. Molan partly seeks to avoid so-called theological determinism. The view that God decrees, who will be saved or damned without any meaningful impact of their own free choice. 2 (51m 28s): Today's highest profile defenders of Molan are William William Lane, Craig and Alvin plant GU. So if you wanna look up those guys, that would be on you. So human free will versus the total depravity of man. We would agree that man, we are totally depraved. Calvinists would say, because of that depravity, we don't have the capacity to choose God Armenian and Armenian would say, well, we believe that we're depraved, but because of the, the grace of the Lord, the common grace of God in the world where we have the capacity to choose, all right, let's take a look at conditional election versus unconditional election. 2 (52m 12s): The Armenian position, conditional election, God chose people for salvation based on his four knowledge. How many believe that God has? There's four knowledge that there's God is so four knowledge I'll just read. The definition is the awareness for knowledge is the awareness or knowledge of something before it happens or exists. My theology says that God knows everything before it happens. He doesn't need to look down to discover something, look down. He just, he understands it all before the foundation of the world. He understood and he knows all truth. 2 (52m 54s): So God has four knowledge of everything. So that, so that nothing, nothing, absolutely nothing surprises him. God knows who will respond to the gospel message. God knows. Before we are born, before we are created, God knows who will be his and who will refuse him. People are elected. They're chosen when they choose or elect God, people are chosen. So you, you wanna know if you're the elect, do you choose God? Then he chooses you. You're the elect you've been chosen by God, God knows who will choose him. So they are elected. 2 (53m 35s): God is not surprised by anything. He knows all things. It's called the omniscience of God. God is mission. He knows all things, nothing surprises him. There's nothing that he doesn't know. And anytime in history, throughout forever and ever eternity passed and eternity future, there's nothing that God doesn't know and understand a completely grasp in the tulip of Calvinism. U stands for unconditional election. The Calvinist view says, God chooses, who will be saved because people are dead in their sins. 2 (54m 15s): They are unable to initiate a response to God. In eternity, past God, elected certain people to be saved. This saved people are called the elect and God picks them based, not on their personal character or, or merit. So God chooses them not based on their personal character or merit, but out of his kindness and sovereign will. It also means that election for salvation is not based on God's fore knowledge of who would come to faith in him in the future. So Calvinists believe since some are chosen for salvation, others are not. 2 (54m 60s): So what's the opposite of salvation would be damnation. So Sal Calvinists would believe that some are chosen for salvation. Others would be chosen for damnation. Those not chosen are the damned destined for an eternity in hell. So some would argue that God is not fair. And, but that, that perspective is not fair, but I don't, I don't, I don't like the word fair. It's not a good theological word, but the word just is the word just describes the eternal character of God. He is just, he is faithful. 2 (55m 42s): And he is just so theology is the study of the nature of God. If we want to know who God is, we need to know his nature. And part of his nature is that he is just and Calvinists and Armenians both believe that God is just, we just kind of interpret things a little bit differently. First, John one nine. But if we confessed our sins to him, he is faithful. And just to forgive us, our sins and to cleanses from all wickedness. So what do we mean when we say that God is just that word has meaning and it has weight. 2 (56m 23s): And as we understand the meaning and the weight of that word, we begin to clarity. We begin to get clarity about who God is and how God functions in the world to, to, to be just means that he is perfectly righteous in his treatment of his creatures. He is perfectly righteous in his treatment of his creatures. God shows no partiality. And if you're taking notes, you can write down acts 10 34 that God shows no partiality acts 10 34. He commands against the mist treatment of others. 2 (57m 3s): Zacharia seven, 10, and he perfectly executes vengeance against the oppressor. He perfectly executes vengeance against the oppressor. Second test one six, Romans 1219 God is just in meeting out rewards, meaning God is not unjust. He will not forget your work. The love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them. Hebrews six, 10, he's equally just in meeting out punishment. Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for their wrongs. And there is no favoritism IANS, 3 25 justice and a righteousness. 2 (57m 51s): We cease from Psalm 89, 14 justice and righteousness. It's always where hand in hand are the foundation of God's thrown. So let's throw out the word fair because it's kind of Lucy goosey term. It's not a theological term. Let's use the word just is God. Just of course, God is just, he's not God. If he's not just now let's compare universal atonement with the L in tulip, which stands for limited atonement met limited atonement. Armenians believe in Armenian believes in universal atonement. 2 (58m 34s): So there's universal atonement versus limited atonement. There's gonna be a test by the way, at the end. How many, know what the tulips stands for right here? Okay. Universal. Atoma the position that Jesus bore the sin of everyone, whoever lived that's universal atonement. That's not universalism. Meaning that everybody goes to heaven. We're not talking about universalism. We're talking about universal atonement that God for God. So love the world that he gave. His only begotten son that whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life. And so we're talking about universal atonement versus limited atonement, which was the Calvinist believe limited atonement is the view is the view that Jesus Christ died only for the sins of the elect. 2 (59m 24s): According to John Calvin support for this belief comes from verses that say, Jesus died for many such as Matthew, 2028, Hebrews 9 28. I'll just read those verses and you can see how someone might arrive at this position. So Christ Hebrews 9 28. So Christ having been offered once to bear the sins of many will appear a second time not to deal with sin, but to save those who are eagerly, eagerly, waiting for him. So the many there trying to understand the context, the immediate context, the wider context, and the complete context of the scripture speaks to those who give themselves to Jesus. 2 (1h 0m 10s): Those who are the saved and not everybody has given themselves to Jesus. So Christ having been offered once to bear the sins of those who have, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin, but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him, Matthew 20, 28, even as the son of man came not to be served, but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many. So this point is one of the more controversial beliefs of Calvinism. So some, some would say, I'm not a five point Calvinist believing in all of the tulip, but I'm a four point Calvinist, which is fine in some levels. We're probably some of us might be two point Calvinist, three point. 2 (1h 0m 53s): We might be zero point it's. You know, these are things that we have to sort out. So those who teach four point Calvinism believe Christ died, not just for the, just, but not just for the elect, but for the entire world. And they cite certain verses that we know. And I just did John three 16 for God. So loved the world that he gave his only son that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. And so the atonement of God is for the world. That's 2 21, and it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved first enemy two, three, and four. This is good. And it is pleasing in the sight of God, our savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 2 (1h 1m 38s): And first John, two, two, he is the propitiation for our sins and not four hours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. So we've got these conflicting kind of ideas are, are many as Armenian people believe are they saved? Would if, if you're an Armenian, you know, holder of Armenian theology, would you say that you're saved? Yes. Okay. Would you say that if you're a Calvinist holding to Calvinist theology, would, would you say Calvinists are saved? Yeah. We're all part of the same family, right? Molan if you kind of have that moralistic perspective, would, would that person be saved? 2 (1h 2m 21s): Yeah, we're saved by grace through faith. And as we sort out these differing theological perspectives, that's why there's a thousand different churches and denominations in the world because we all have different perspectives. All right. Let's talk about resistible grace versus irresistible grace, the eye and the tulips stands for irresistible grace, resistible grace though, the teaching that the grace of God can be resisted and finally beaten. So as to reject salvation and Christ, so resistible grace versus irresistible grace irresistible grace is the belief that God brings his elect to salvation through an internal call, which they are, which they are powerless to resist the holy spirit supplies, grace to them until they repent and are born again. 2 (1h 3m 18s): So irresistible grace would say that God is so determined and extends his grace so strongly that it's ultimately irresistible. Now there's arguments within the church. Can you lose your salvation? Irresistible. Grace would say, no, you can't because the grace of God is irresistible. And even though you may backslide or fall away for a moment or a time, you will come back because of that irresistible grace, some would say, because that is true. You can't lose your salvation, but others would believe. Yeah. Yeah, you actually can fall away. Some would say, though, if you fallen away, you actually weren't saved in the first place. 2 (1h 3m 58s): So there's all kinds of, kind of gray around this idea. Can you lose your salvation? I've vacillated on this, honestly, theologically over the years, I've vacillated on this. Can you lose it? If you can. It's very hard because God is tenacious to come after us tenacious to forgive us tenacious, to love us unconditionally. So if we can lose it, it's pretty hard. It's pretty difficult, but I, I'm not gonna say you can't lose your salvation. If you walk away from God and you know, kind of bring stuff, the question was Judas saved. 2 (1h 4m 40s): I guess we'll find out when we get there. Calvin is backed this doctrine with such verses as Romans nine. And so we're just gonna go through Romans nine, 10 through 33, and we're gonna try our best to kind of unpack things in the next minute or two. And I'll just make this statement. God's for knowledge allows him or allowed him to buy a sovereign tea, direct the affairs of men, Romans nine, 10. And again, if you're a Calvinist here, or if you're Armenian, we'll have great conversation about it. 2 (1h 5m 20s): We'll find out someday. This son was our ancestor eyes kind of jumping into the middle of the chapter here. When he married Rebecca, she gave birth to twins, but before they were born, before they had done anything good or bad, she received a message from God. This message shows that God chooses people. According to his own purpose. He calls people. He calls people, but not according to their good or bad work, she was told your older son will serve your younger son. So the context of this passage, I mean, again, we look at the immediate context, the what's happening within the verses around the verse that we're trying to understand in the wider context what's happening within the book that we're studying, and then the complete context what's happening, you know, in the total story of the word of God, what is God's message to us? 2 (1h 6m 10s): So the context in this scripture seems to be talking about not a calling into salvation, but a calling into kind of position or role or responsibility. He calls people, calls people context. This calling is not talking about salvation, but not according to their good or bad works. And so this person wasn't called according to their good or bad works, but for God's purpose, God had a purpose for this person. So your older son will serve your younger son in the words of scripture. I love Jacob, but I rejected or I hated Esau. I love Jacob, but I hated Esau. 2 (1h 6m 53s): That's what the king James says. I think the original language speaks to that hatred. Why? Because Esau rejected. God, did God know that Esau was going to reject him? He did. He absolutely did. And so God, in his foreknowledge and through his sovereign, he was able to shape the events of history and the unfolding of his story history, his story, because he understood with fore knowledge, what everybody was gonna do before they were ever created. He knew. And so he was able to fashion things according to that fore knowledge and in his sovereignty unfold things, as he desired, are we saying verse 14, then that God was unfair. 2 (1h 7m 43s): Of course not for God said to Moses, I will show mercy to anyone I choose. And I will show compassion to anyone I choose. So it is God who decides to show mercy. We can either choose it. We can, we can either choose it nor work for it. Interesting. We can either choose it nor work for it. The salvation of God we is given as a free gift. It says here, we can either choose it nor work for it. So those are some difficult passages that we kind of have to wrestle through, but let's continue on here. So what is God who decides to show mercy? We can either choose it or work for it for the scripture, say that God told Pharaoh, and this is a great and interesting kind of picture. 2 (1h 8m 32s): But as we go back and read in Exodus chapter five, when Moses showed up to Farrow Farrow's response, Moses told Faroh, Hey, I'm gonna, we need to take, I need to take the Hebrew people and go worship the Lord. And Farrow said, who's the Lord that I should fear him or obey him. We get a glimpse into Pharaoh's heart, that it was already hard. It was already disobedience to the Lord. And we see as he goes on, it interacts with Moses that God gives him over to his sinfulness and uses his hard heart to further his purposes. 2 (1h 9m 18s): And so he takes his hard heart and even hardens it even more to accomplish his great purposes in the earth. But Pharaoh already had a hard heart. So God uses that to further his kingdom go back and read Exodus 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 for the scripture say that God told Pharaoh, I have appointed you for the very purpose of displaying my power in you and to spread my fame throughout the earth. So you see God chooses to show mercy to so, and he chooses to harden the hearts of others. So they refuse to listen. Now, if as a Calvinist, we believe that God can harden hearts, then that's, God can do whatever he wants to do. That's the part of the point is that if God's creed humanity, so not to diminish anything of God's power in God's sovereignty, in God's ability, he can do whatever he wants to do. 2 (1h 10m 9s): And it's just, and righteous if God's doing it, but we need to be careful not to misunderstand what God is doing and call calling something just when it's unjust or righteous. When it's unrighteous, we just need to be careful that we're understanding the totality of the word of God or the new Testament, with a clear picture of who God is, the character and the nature of God. So when we look at scripture, we need to ask ourselves a question, is this, my understanding of this scripture is it match the character and the nature of God does it match the story of the scripture? The complete message, the, the context of scripture, the immediate, the wider, the complete context. 2 (1h 10m 50s): We need to understand how to ask these questions. When we study the scripture for the scripture says that God told Faroh, I've appointed you for the very purpose of displaying my power in you and to spread my fame throughout the earth. So you see God chooses to show mercy to someone he chooses to harden the hearts of others. So they refuse to listen. So God's fore knowledge allows him to know what people will do do. And out of his fore knowledge, he acts gly in the earth. He's a just God. Well then you might say, why verse 19? Why does God blame people for not responding? Having they simply done what he makes them do? And the writer says, no, don't, don't say that. 2 (1h 11m 32s): Who are you? A mere human being to argue with God? So the thing that was created by the say to the one who created it, why have you made me like this? When a Potter makes a jar out of clay, doesn't he have a right to use the same lump of clay to make one jar for decoration and another to throw garbage in, in the same way, even though God has the right to show his anger and his power, he is very patient with those on whom his anger falls, who are destined for destruction. He does this to make the riches of his glory, shine, even brighter on those, to whom he shows mercy, we were prepared in advance for glory. 2 (1h 12m 13s): Are we among those whom he selected both from the Jews and from the Gentiles concerning the Gentiles. God says in the prophecy of those who are not my people, I will now call my people. Why weren't they as people because they're Gentiles. They're not Jews. They're not part of the chosen nation, but because they responded to the grace and the mercy of the Lord, Jesus Christ. Now they are his people. So as we think about Calvinism versus our meaning, the question for Calvinists a lot is, Hey, why do you evangelize? If it doesn't matter what we do, we're gonna be saved or not saved. And they talk about human agency. John Piper, especially talks about human agency, that God doesn't work outside of human agency. 2 (1h 12m 57s): So if people are to get saved, it's usually through the human agency of a preacher or missionary. So there's a, in my mind, it contradicts what they believe about salvation because human agency obviously is not capable in our own humanness. We're not capable of choosing, but yet God uses human agency. Those who are preaching the word of God to reach us. It for me, it's, there's a conflict there. It's hard for me to, to, to settle that kind of discrepancy or that, that confusion in my heart and mind and when we are. 2 (1h 13m 39s): And when we are among those whom he selected both from the Jews and the gen tells concerning the gen tells, we read that let's go to verse 26. And then at the place where they were told you are not my people there. They will be called children of the living God and concerning Israel. I say the prophet tried out though, the people of Israel are as numerous as the sand of the seashore. Only arrant will be saved for the Lord will carry out his sentence upon the earth quickly. And with finality. And Isaiah said the same thing in another place. If the Lord of heaven's armies had not spared a few of our children, we would've been wiped out like Sodom destroyed like Gamora. 2 (1h 14m 20s): What does all this mean? Even though the Gentiles were not trying to follow God's standard, they were made right with God. And it was by faith that this took place. How were they made? Right with God like Abraham, they were made right with God, by their faith, their own human agency. And Calvinist would say, well, God saved them outside of their own Involvement because he wanted to save them. But we know from scripture, the old and the new Testament that the righteous are justified by faith were saved by faith. 2 (1h 15m 3s): And so there's a faith element that makes people, allows people to come into the kingdom of God. They were made right with God. And it was by faith that this took place. But the people of Israel who tried so hard to get right with God, by keeping the law never succeeded, the law was a mirror put up in front of the people so that they recognize their sinfulness. It wasn't to be kept for righteousness sake. It was to be acknowledged. God is so righteous and pure and set apart that I could never measure up to him with my own good works. And so I must receive his mercy and his grace for Jews and Gentiles alike, verse 32. 2 (1h 15m 50s): I think that's where we are. Why not? Because they were trying to get right with God by keeping the law instead of by trusting in him. All right. So human, the human part of salvation is faith and trust. We, we are presented in my opinion, presented with salvation, for God's to love the world. And we have to decide, are we going to have faith? And are we going to put trust in who, in the gospel message in the person, the work of the Lord, Jesus Christ. 2 (1h 16m 34s): All right, let's skip the rest of those verses here for the sake of time. All right, finally, we get to the end of the argument. Armenians, believe a person can fall from grace. The, the P and tulip stands for the perseverance of the saints. So Calvinist would believe that even again, even if you backslide or fall away, that the perseverance of the saints will allow a person to persevere and, and walk with God all the days of their lives. Whereas a person, according to Armenian theology can fall from grace. 2 (1h 17m 17s): Let's just take a look. Calvinism teaches that the elect cannot lose their salvation because salvation is the work of God. The father, Jesus Christ, a savior in the holy spirit, it cannot be thwarted. None whom God has called will be lost. They are eternally secure, technically. However, it is God who perseveres, not the saints themselves. I don't think that bears witness with the rest of the scripture Calvin's doctrine on the perseverance of the saints is in contrast the theology of Lutheranism and the Roman Catholic church, which hold that people can lose their salvation. 2 (1h 17m 58s): Calvinist supports eternal security with versus such as John 10, 27, 28. My sheep listen to my voice. I know them and they follow me. I give them eternal life and they shall never perish. No one will snatch them out of my hand. In first Corinthians 10, 13, no temptation is overtaken. You accept what is common to mankind, and God is faithful. He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear, but you are tempted. But when you are tempted, he will provide a way out so that you can endure it mean T private total privative man. 2 (1h 18m 38s): Good. You unconditional ion unconditional atonement. L 11 (1h 18m 45s): Limited 2 (1h 18m 46s): Limited. What limited? I wrote it down. You wrote it down. And so 12 (1h 18m 56s): Unconditional 2 (1h 18m 57s): Election, unconditional election was, yeah. You okay. Good. Unconditional election L limited atonement. I IR irresistible irresistible grace and P perseverance. Perseverance of the saints. So did God choose us or did we choose God? Yes. I think it's both. I think it's both. We choose God and God chooses us. God chooses us. And we choose God in marriage. Did I choose my wife? Or did she choose me both? Right. 2 (1h 19m 37s): Even in an arranged marriage, if you look in the old Testament, you look at some of the patriarchs. They, they had a wife chosen for them, but ultimately they were also, their wives were given the choice to them. So I chose my wife and thankfully she chose me now who chose who first? Well in this relationship, I chose her first. And then she chose me. But in relationship with God who chose, who first, what came first, the chicken or the egg, I think God chose us. And then we chose him, but we have a choice to put our faith in him and to trust him or not. 2 (1h 20m 26s): That's my perspective. Now, if you disagree, that's okay as well. I there's lots of verses. We could go and go through and read, but we're already over time by 14 minutes. And so I'm gonna invite the worship team up. I used to be grateful for the clock. Sometimes I'm not so grateful for the clock. Let's go ahead and stand up. And Lord, I, I pray that I haven't confused people more than they were in the beginning. I pray that there's at least a kind of a, an, an excitement to kind of look further into it and to kind of consider all of these things. When we're reading the scripture and trying to understand the character and the nature of God, I pray that Lord, we would just be able to think deeply about the things of God and arrive at healthy conclusions, godly conclusions that fit the context of scripture. 2 (1h 21m 20s): So Lord, help us help us, Lord, help me. Thank you, Lord, for your grace in Jesus name, let's worship. Amen. 1 (1h 21m 51s): All my words, brochure. I got nothing express as I often do with every song. Must and again, have it's except for singing. 1 (1h 23m 10s): I got one. I've got just one. We worship 0 (1h 23m 25s): You. 1 (1h 23m 28s): So, and don't don't you up? 1 (1h 24m 29s): Your, you gotta lie songs. 0 (1h 24m 37s): Praise, Lord. 1 (1h 24m 45s): Don't shy on me.

Sarah Corlis is a mother of two children with Lyme disease from Alpharetta, Georgia. Growing up, she had a very active social life and used to work out all the time. Sarah was a human resources manager until she was 34 years old when she took some time off to have her kids. A few years later, she returned to work as a realtor with a more flexible schedule for 6 years until she decided to work fulltime on her health and the health of her two children. Some of Sarah's early Lyme disease symptoms included dizziness, nausea, jaw pain, headaches, terrible fatigue, depression, and anxiety, but doctors dismissed her symptoms and told her she was just anxious. Finally, Sarah was tested for Lyme disease by a functional medical doctor and was positive through both Labcorp and Vibrant Wellness tests. Sarah has been treating using a variety of different tools for almost a decade. She has used antibiotics, herbals, FREmedica WAVE 1, Supportive Oligonucleotide Therapy (SOT) for Lyme and Bartonella, and most recently Ivermectin/Azithromycin for Babesia. Next, she is considering SOT for Babesia. If you'd like to learn more how a determined mom "didn't lose hope, kept trying" and knew her and her children "could feel better", then tune in now!

https://www.digikey.com/short/cp05vd44 Many devices and sensors like it if you give them a fancy reset pulse after power has come up, particularly displays and OLEDs! But sometime for wiring simplicity we would like to skip using a microcontroller pin, and have the breakout board autoreset on power loss. In such cases we use a 'power on reset' chip such as the APX803-26SAG https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/diodes-incorporated/APX803-26SAG-7/2285963 . It's worked great but....it's now discontinued! Lets find a drop-in replacement. We will need a SOT-23-3 with pin 1 ground, pin 2 open-drain reset and pin 3 VCC. The reset pulse should be about 100ms, VCC should be able to be 3 to 5V, and the reset level about 2.7V, and hold down the reset line for at least 10ms. The challenge is there's a lot of options, but they're not all function/pin compatible!

Nicoleta Forbes is a married 36-year-old realtor from St Petersburg, Florida. She and her husband co-manage their family, a successful real estate business, and Lyme disease. In 2016, the couple were both physically unwell and Mr. Forbes was diagnosed with Lyme disease. His debilitating symptoms became life threatening, forcing the family to close their business, sell their house, and focus full time on healing. While supporting her husband's healing, Ms. Forbes felt like “she understood her husband's symptoms so well and could truly understand what he was going through”. In 2018, she discovered her sympathy was in fact empathy because she tested positive for a cocktail of tick diseases including Lyme, Bartonella, Babesia, and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Her diagnosis helped her to understand why her life was bookmarked with “seasons of feeling good and then not”. Fortunately, “the trial and error with [her] husband” allowed her to shorten her treatment journey and work with a health care provider she trusted. Ms. Forbes treated with antibiotics, herbals, lymphatic drainage massages, a rife machine, ozone therapy, cryotherapy, and glutathione through a nebulizer. She modeled her husband's treatment path except he utilized additional SOT and Lyme N therapies. Today, the couple have returned to work and have rebuilt their real estate business after learning how to turn their treatment into a lifestyle.

This month on Episode 36 of Discover CircRes, host Cynthia St. Hilaire highlights original research articles featured in the April 29 and May 13 issues of Circulation Research. This episode also features a conversation with Dr Patricia Nguyen and Jessica D'Addabbo from Stanford University about their study, Human Coronary Plaque T-cells are Clonal and Cross-React to Virus and Self.   Article highlights:   Zanoli, et al. COVID-19 and Vascular Aging   Wang, et al. JP2NT Gene Therapy in a Mouse Heart Failure Mode   Harraz, et al. Piezo1 Is a Mechanosensor in CNS Capillaries   Zhao, et al. BAT sEVs in Exercise Cardioprotection   Cindy St. Hilaire:        Hi, and welcome to Discover CircRes, the podcast of the American Heart Association's journal, Circulation Research. I'm your host, Dr Cyndy St. Hilaire, from the Vascular Medicine Institute at the University of Pittsburgh. And today, I'll be highlighting the articles from our April 29th and May 13th issues of Circulation Research. I also will speak with Dr Patricia Nguyen and Jessica D'Addabbo from Stanford University about their study, Human Coronary Plaque T-cells are Clonal and Cross-React to Virus and Self.   Cindy St. Hilaire:        The first article I want to share is titled Vascular Dysfunction of COVID 19 Is Partially Reverted in the Long-Term. The first author is Agostino Gaudio and the corresponding author is Luca Zanoli. And they're from the University of Catania. Cardiovascular complications, such as endothelial dysfunction, arterial stiffness, thrombosis and heart disease are common in COVID 19. But how quickly such issues resolve, once the acute phase of the illness has passed, remains unclear. To find out, this group examined aortic and brachial pulse wave velocity, and other measures of arterial stiffness in 90 people who, several months earlier, had been hospitalized with COVID 19. These measurements were compared with data from 180 controls, matched for age, sex, ethnicity and body mass index, whose arterial stiffness had been assessed prior to the pandemic. 41 of the COVID patients were also examined 27 weeks later to assess any changes in arterial stiffness over time. Together, the data showed arterial stiffness was higher in COVID patients than in controls. And though it improved over time, it tended to remain higher than normal for almost a year after COVID.   Cindy St. Hilaire:        This finding could suggest residual structural damage to the arterial walls or possibly, persistent low-grade inflammation in COVID patients. Either way, since arterial stiffness is a predictor of cardiovascular health, its potential longterm effects in COVID patients deserves further longitudinal studies.   Cindy St. Hilaire:        The second article I want to share is titled Gene Therapy with the N-Terminus of Junctophilin-2 Improves Heart Failure in Mice. The first author is Jinxi Wang and the corresponding author is Long-Sheng Song from the University of Iowa. Junctophilin-2 is a protein with a split personality. Normally, it forms part of the heart's excitation contraction coupling machinery. But when the heart is stressed, JP2 literally splits in two, and sends its N-terminal domain, JP2NT, to the nucleus, where it suppresses transcription of genes involved in fibrosis, hypertrophy, inflammation and other heart failure related processes. However, if this stress is severe or sustained, the protective action of JP2NT is insufficient to halt the progressive failure. This group asked. "What if this N-terminal domain could be ramped up using gene therapy to aid a failing mouse heart?"   Cindy St. Hilaire:        To answer this question, they injected adenoviral vectors encoding JP2NT into mice either before or soon after transaortic constriction, or TAC, tack, which is a method of experimentally inducing heart failure. They found, in both cases, that the injected animals fared better than the controls. Animals injected before TAC showed less severe cardiac remodeling than control mice, while those treated soon after TAC exhibited slower loss of heart function with reduced ventricle dilation and fibrosis. These data suggest that supplementing JP2NT, via gene therapy or other means, could be a promising strategy for treating heart failure. And this data provides a basis for future translational studies.   Cindy St. Hilaire:        The third article I want to share is titled Piezo1 Is a Mechanosensor Channel in Central Nervous System Capillaries. The first and corresponding author is Osama Harraz from the University of Vermont. Neurovascular coupling is the process whereby transient activation of neurons leads to an upsurge in local blood flow to accommodate the increased metabolic needs of the cell. It's known that agents released from active neurons trigger changes in local capillaries that prompt vasodilation, but how these hemodynamic changes are sensed and controlled is not entirely clear. This group suspected that the mechanosensory protein Piezo1, a calcium channel that regulates dilation and constriction of other blood vessels, may be involved. But whether Piezo1 is even found in the microcirculation of the CNS was unknown. This group shows that Piezo1 is present in cortical capillaries of the brain and the retina of the mouse, and that it responds to changes in blood pressure and flow.   Cindy St. Hilaire:        Ex vivo preparations of mouse retina showed that experimentally induced changes in hemodynamics caused calcium transients and related currents within capillary endothelial cells, and that these were dependent on the presence of Piezo1. While it is not entirely clear how Piezo1 influences cerebral blood flow, its pressure induced activation of CNS capillary endothelial cells suggest a critical role in neurovascular coupling.   Cindy St. Hilaire:        The last article I want to share is titled Small Extracellular Vesicles from Brown Adipose Tissue Mediate Exercise Cardioprotection. The first authors are Hang Zhao and Xiyao Chen. And the corresponding authors are Fuyang Zhang and Ling Tao from the Fourth Military Medical University. Regular aerobic exercise is good for the heart and it increases the body's proportion of brown adipose tissue relative to white adipose tissue. This link has led to the idea that brown fat, possibly via its endocrinal activity, might somehow contribute to exercise related cardioprotection. Zhao and colleagues now show that, indeed, brown fat produces extracellular vesicles that are key to preserving heart health. While mice subjected to four weeks of aerobic exercise were better protected against subsequent heart injury than their sedentary counterparts, blocking the production of EVs prior to exercise significantly impaired this protection. Furthermore, injection of brown fat derived EVs into the hearts of mice lessened the impact of subsequent cardiac injury.   Cindy St. Hilaire:        The team went on to identify micro RNAs within the vesicles responsible for this protection, showing that the micro RNAs suppressed an apoptosis pathway in cardiomyocytes. In identifying mechanisms and molecules involved in exercise related cardio protection, the work will inform the development of exercise mimicking treatments for people at risk of heart disease or who are intolerant to exercise.   Cindy St. Hilaire:        Lastly, I want to bring up that the April 29th issue of Circulation Research also contains a short Review Series on pulmonary hypertension, with articles on: The Latest in Animal Models of Pulmonary Hypertension and Right Ventricular Failure, by Olivier Boucherat; Harnessing Big Data to Advance Treatment and Understanding of Pulmonary Hypertension, by Christopher Rhodes and colleagues; New Mutations and Pathogenesis of Pulmonary Hypertension: Progress and Puzzles in Disease Pathogenesis, by Christophe Guignabert and colleagues; Group 3 Pulmonary Hypertension From Bench to Bedside, by Corey Ventetuolo and colleagues; and Novel Approaches to Imaging the Pulmonary Vasculature and Right Heart, by Sudarshan Rajagopal and colleagues; and Understanding the Pathobiology of Pulmonary Hypertension Due to Left Heart Disease, by Jessica Huston and colleagues.   Cindy St. Hilaire:        Today, Dr Patricia Nguyen and Jessica D'Addabbo, from Sanford University, are with me to discuss their study, Human Coronary Plaque T-cells are Clonal and Cross-React to Virus and Self. And this article is in our May 13th issue of Circulation Research. So, Trisha and Jessica, thank you so much for joining me today.   Jessica D'Addabbo:    Thank you for having us.   Patricia Nguyen:         Yes. Thank you for inviting us to your podcast. We're very excited to be here.   Cindy St. Hilaire:        Yeah. And I know there's lots of authors involved in this study, so unfortunately we can't have everyone join us, but I appreciate you all taking the time.   Patricia Nguyen:         This is like a humongous effort by many people in the group, including Roshni Roy Chowdhury, and Xianxi Huang, as well as Charles Chan and Mark Davis. So, we thank you.   Cindy St. Hilaire:        So atherosclerosis, it stems from lipid deposition in the vascular wall. And that lipid deposition causes a whole bunch of things to happen that lead to a chronic inflammatory state. And there's many cells that can be inflammatory. And this study, your study, is really focusing on the role of T-cells in the atherosclerotic plaque. So, before we get into the nitty gritty details of your study, can you share with us, what is it that a T-cell does normally and what is it doing in a plaque? Or rather, let me rephrase that as, what did we know a T-cell was doing in a plaque before your study?   Patricia Nguyen:         So, T-cells, as you know, are members of the adaptive immune system. They are the master regulators of the entire immune system, secreting cytokines and other proteins to attract immune cells to a diseased portion of the body, for example. T-cells have been characterized in plaque previously, mainly with immunohisto chemistry. And their characterization has also been recently performed using single cell technologies. Those studies have been restricted to mainly mirroring studies, studies in mice in their aortic walls, in addition to human carotid arteries. So, it is well known that T cells are found in plaque and a lot of attention has been given to the macrophage subset as the innate immune D. But let's not forget the T-cell because they're actually composed about... 50% in the plaque are T-cells.   Patricia Nguyen:         And we were particularly interested in the T-cell population because we have a strong collaboration with Dr Mark Davis, who's actually the pioneer of T-cell biology and was the first to describe the T-cell receptor alpha beta receptor in his lab in the 1970s. So, he has developed many techniques to interrogate T-cell biology. And our collaboration with him has allowed us and enabled us to perform many of these single cell technologies. In addition, his colleague, Dr Chen, also was pivotal in helping us with the interrogation and understanding of the T-cells in plaque.   Cindy St. Hilaire:        And I think one of the really neat strengths of your study is that you used human coronary artery plaques. So, could you walk us through? What was that like? I collect a lot of human tissue in my lab. I get a lot of aortic valves from the clinic. And it's a lot of logistics. And a lot of times, we're just fixing them, but you are not just fixing them. So, can you walk us through? What was that experimental process from the patient to the Petri dish? And also, could you tell us a little bit about your patient population that you sampled from?   Jessica D'Addabbo:    So, these were coronary arteries that we got from patients receiving a heart transplant. So, they were getting a heart transplant for various reasons, and we would receive their old heart, and someone would help us dissect out the coronary arteries from these. And then, we would process each of these coronary arteries separately. And this happened at whatever hour the hearts came out of the patient.   Jessica D'Addabbo:    So sometime, I was coming in at 3:00 AM with Dr Nguyen and we would be working on these hearts then, because we wanted the samples to be as fresh as possible. So, we would get the arteries. We would digest out the tissue. And then, we would have certain staining profiles that we wanted to look at so that we could put the cells on fax to be able to sort the cells, and then do all the downstream sequencing from there.   Cindy St. Hilaire:        So, in terms of, I don't know, the time when you get that phone call that a heart's coming in to actually getting those single cells that you can either send a fax or send a sequencing, how long did that take, on a good day? Let's talk only about good days.   Jessica D'Addabbo:    Yeah. A lot of factors went into that, sometimes depending on availability of things. But usually, we were ready with all of the materials in advance. So, I'd say it could be anywhere from six to 12 hours, it would take, to get everything sorted. Then, everything after that would happen. But that was just that critical period of making sure we got the cells fresh.   Patricia Nguyen:         So we have to credit the CT surgeons at Stanford for setting up the program or the structure, infrastructure, that enables us to obtain this precious tissue. That is Jack Boyd and Joseph Woo of CT surgery. So, they have enabled human research on hearts by making these tissues available. Because as you know, a transplant... They can say the transplant's happening at 12:00 AM, but it actually doesn't happen until 4:00 AM. And I think it's very difficult for a lab to make that happen all the time. And I think having their support in this paper was critical. And this has allowed us, enabled us, to interrogate kind of the spectrum of disease, especially focusing on T-cells, which are... They make a portion of the plaque, but the plaque itself has not like a million cells that are immune. A lot of them are not immune. So, enabling us to get the tissue in a timely fashion where they're not out of the body for more than 30 minutes enables us to interrogate these small populations of cells.   Cindy St. Hilaire:        That's actually the perfect segue to my next question, which is, how many cells in a plaque were you able to investigate with the single cell analysis? And what was the percentage again of the T-cells in those plaques or in... I guess you looked at different phases of plaque. So, what was that spectrum for the percentage of T-cells?   Patricia Nguyen:         So, for 10X, for example, you need a minimum of 10,000 captured cells. You could do less, but the utility of the 10X is maximized with 10,000. So, many times before the ability to multiplex these tissues, we were doing like capturing 5,000 for example. And the number of cells follows kind of the disease progression, in the sense that as a disease is more severe, you have more immune cells, in general. And it kind of decreases as it becomes more fibrotic and scarred, like calcified. So, it was a bit challenging to get very early just lipid-only cells. And a lot of those, we captured like 3000 or something like that. And efficiency is like 80% perhaps. So, you kind of capture…   Cindy St. Hilaire:        And also, how many excised hearts are going to have early athero? So, it's...   Patricia Nguyen:         Well, there are... nonischemics will have...   Cindy St. Hilaire:        Oh, okay. Okay.   Patricia Nguyen:         So, the range was nonischemic to ischemic.   Cindy St. Hilaire:        Oh great.   Patricia Nguyen:         So, about a portion... I would say one third of the total heart transplants were ischemic. And a lot of them were non ischemic. But as you know, the nonischemic can mix with ischemia. And so, they could have mild to moderate disease in the other arteries, for example, but not severe like 70%/90% obstruction.   Cindy St. Hilaire:        Wow. That's so great. That's amazing. Amazing sample size you have. So T-cell, it's kind of an umbrella term, right? There's many different types of T-cells. And when you start to get in the nitty gritty, they really do have distinct functions. So, what types of T-cells did you see and did you focus on in this study?   Jessica D'Addabbo:    So, the two main types of T-cells are CD4 positive T-cells and CD8 positive T-cells. And we looked at both of these T-cells from patients. We usually sorted multiple plates from each. And then, with 10X, we captured both. But our major finding was actually that the CD8 positive t-cell population was more clonally expanded than the CD4 population, which led us to believe that these cells were more important in the coronary artery disease progression and in the study that we were doing because for a cell to be clonally expanded, it means it was previously exposed to an antigen. And so, if we're finding these T-cells that are clonally expanded in our plaques, then we're hypothesizing that they were likely exposed to some sort of antigen, and then expanded, and then settled into the plaque.   Cindy St. Hilaire:        And when you're saying expansion, are you talking about them being exposed to the antigen in the plaque and expanding there? Or do you think they're being triggered in the periphery and then honing in as a more clonal population?   Patricia Nguyen:         So, that's a great question. And unfortunately, I don't have the answer to that. So basically-   Jessica D'Addabbo:    Next paper, next paper.   Patricia Nguyen:         Exactly. So, we... Interesting to expand on Jessica's answer. Predominantly what was found, as you said, was memory T-cells, so memory T-cells expressing specific markers, so memory versus naive. And these were effector T-cells. And memory meaning they were previously expanded by antigen engagement, and just happened to be in the plaque for whatever reason. We do not know why T-cells specifically are attracted to the plaque, but they are obviously there. And they're in a memory state, if you will. And some of them did display activation markers, which suggested that they clonally expanded to an antigen. What that antigen is, is the topic of another paper. But certainly, it is important to understand that these patients that we recruit, because they were transplant patients, they're not actively infected, right? That is a exclusionary criteria for transplants, right?   Patricia Nguyen:         So, that means these T-cells were there for unclear reasons. Why they're there is unclear. Whether they are your resident T-cells also is unclear, because the definition of resident T-cell still remains controversial. And you actually have to do lineage tracking studies to find out, "Okay, where... Did they come from the bone marrow? Did they come from the periphery? How did they get there?" Versus, "Okay. They were already there and they just expanded, for whatever reason, inside the plaque."   Cindy St. Hilaire:        So, your title... It was a great title, with this provocative statement, "T-cells are clonal and cross react to virus and self." So, tell us a little bit more about this react to virus and self bit. What did your data show?   Jessica D'Addabbo:    So, because of the way we sequenced the T-cell receptor, we were able to have paired alpha and beta chains. And because we knew the HLA type of the patients, we were able to put the sequences that we got out after we sequenced these through an algorithm called GLIPH, which allows us to look at the CDR3 region of the T cell receptor, which is the epitope binding region. And there are certain peptide. They're about anywhere from three to four amino acids long. These are mapped to certain binding specificities to known peptides. And so, basically, we were able to look at which epitopes were most common in our plaques. And we found that after comparing these to other epitopes, that these were actually more binding to virus. Patricia Nguyen:         So let me add to what Jessica stated, and kind of emphasize the value of the data set, if you will. So, this is, I believe, the first study that provides the complete TCR repertoire of coronary plaque, and actually any plaque that I know of, which is special because we know that there is specificity of TCR binding. It's more complicated than the antibody that binds directly from B cells to the antigen, because the T-cells bind processed antigen. So, the antigens are processed by antigen presenting cells like Dendritic cells and macrophages. And they have a specific HLA MHC class that they need to present to. And they need both arms, the antigen epitope and the MHC, to activate the T-cell. So unfortunately, it's not very direct to find the antigen that is actually activating the T-cell because we're only given a piece of it. Right?            Patricia Nguyen:         But we have provided a comprehensive map of all the TCRs that we find in the plaque. And these TCRs have a sequence, an immuno acid sequence. And luckily, in the literature, there is a database of all TCR specificities. Okay. So, armed with our TCR repertoire, we can then match our TCR repertoire with an existing database of known TCR specificities. Surprisingly, the matching TCRs are specific to virus, like flu, EBV and CMB. And also, because this was done in the era of COVID, we thought it would be important to look at the coronavirus database. We did find that there were matches to the coronavirus database. Even though our finding is not specific to SARS, it does lend to some potential mechanistic link there as well.   So, because this is all computational, it is important to validate. So, the importance of validation requires us to put the TCR alpha beta chain into a Jurkat cell, which is a T-cell line that does not have alpha beta chains on it, and then expose it to what we think is the cognate antigen epitote, with the corresponding HLA MHC APC. Because you don't have all those pieces, it will not work. Yes. So importantly, we did find that what we predicted to have the specificity of a flu peptide had specificity to a flu peptide.   Patricia Nguyen:         So then, the important question was, "Okay, these patients aren't infected, right? Why are these things here? Is there a potential cross reactivity with self peptides?"   Patricia Nguyen:         So luckily, our collaborator, Dr Charles Chan, was able to connect us with another computational algorithm that he was familiar with, whereby we were able to take the peptide sequences from the flu and match them with peptide sequencing from proteins that are self and ubiquitous. And we demonstrated, again, these T-cells were activated in vitro. That is why we concluded that there's a potential cross reactivity between self and virus that can potentially lead to thrombosis associated with viral infections. Of course, this all needs to be proved in vivo.   Cindy St. Hilaire:        Sure, sure.   Patricia Nguyen:         It's that first step for other things.   Cindy St. Hilaire:        The other big immune cell that we know is in atherosclerotic plaques and that's macrophages. And they can help to present antigens and things like that. And they also help to chew up the necrotic bits. And so, do you think that this T-cell component is an earlier, maybe disease driving, process or an adaptive process that goes awry as a secondary event? Patricia Nguyen:         So, I'm a fan of the T-cell. So... I'm with team T cell. I would like to think that it is playing an active role in pathology in this case and not a reactive role, in the sense of just being there. I think that the T-cell is actively communicating with other cells within the plaque, and promoting pro fibrotic and pro inflammatory reactions, depending on the T-cell. So, a subset of this paper was looking at kind of the interactions between the T-cell and other cells within the plaque, like macrophages and smooth muscle cells. And as we know, T-cells are activated and they produce cytokines. Those cytokines then communicate to other cells. And we found that, computationally, when you look at the transcriptome, there is a pro-inflammatory signature of the T-cell that resides in the more complex stage. And then, there's an anti-inflammatory signature that kind of resides in the transition between lipid and fibro atheroma, if you will.   Cindy St. Hilaire:        So, do you know, or is it known, how dynamic these populations are? Obviously, the hearts that you got, the samples you got, didn't have active infections. But do you know perhaps even how long ago they happened, or even how soon after there might be an infection or an antigen presented that you could get this expansion? And could that be a real driver of rupture or thrombosis?   Patricia Nguyen:         So, in theory, you would suppose that T-cells expanding and dividing and producing more and more cytokines would then lead to more macrophages coming, more of their production of proteinases that destroy the plaque. Right? So yes, in theory, yes. I think it's very difficult to kind of map the progression of T cell clonality in the current model that we have, because we're just collecting tissues. However, in the future, as organoids become more in science and kind of a primary tissue, where we can... For example, Mark Davis is making organoids with spleen, and also introducing skin to that.   Patricia Nguyen:         And certainly, we could think of an organoid involving the vasculature with immune cells introduced. And so, I think, in the next phase, project 2.0, we can investigate what... like over time, if you could model atherosclerosis and the immune system contribution, T-cells as well as macrophages and other immune cells, you can then kind of map how it happens in humans. Because obviously, mice are different. We know that mice... Actually, the models of transgenic mice do not rupture. It's very hard to make them rupture. Right?   Cindy St. Hilaire:        Well, if you stop feeding them high fat diet, the plaque goes away.   Patricia Nguyen:         For sure, for sure. So I think.. I mean, Mark Davis is a huge proponent of human based research, like research on human tissue. And as a physician scientist, obviously I'm more inclined to do human based research. And Jessica's going to be a physician someday soon. And I'm sure she's more inclined to do human based research. And certainly, the mouse model and in vitro models are great because you can manipulate them. But ultimately, we are trying to cure human diseases.   Cindy St. Hilaire:        Mice are not little humans. That's what we say in my lab. I similarly do a lot of human based stuff and it's amazing how great mice are for certain things, but still how much is not there when we need to really fully recapitulate a disease model.   So, my last question is kind of regarding this autoimmune angle of your findings. And that is, women tend to have more autoimmune diseases than men, but due to the fact that you are getting heart transplants, you've got a whole lot more men in your study than women. I think it was like 31 men to four women. But, I mean, what can you do? It's the nature of heart transplants. But I'm wondering, did you happen to notice...Maybe the sample size perhaps is too small, but were there any differences in the populations of these cells between women and men? And do you think there could be any differences regarding this more prevalence of autoimmune like reactions in women?   Patricia Nguyen:         So, that's an interesting question, but you hit it on the nose when you said "Your sample is defined mainly by men." And in addition, the samples that were women tend to have less disease. And they tend to be nonischemic in etiology. So, I think that kind of restricts our analysis. And perhaps, I guess, future studies could model using female tissues, for example, instead of only male. But the limitation of all human studies is sample availability. And perhaps, human organoid research can be less limited by that. And certainly, mouse research has become more evenly distributed of male and female mice.   Cindy St. Hilaire:        Yeah. Suffice it to say, human research is hard, but you managed to do an amazing and really important study. It was really elegant and well done. Congratulations on what is an epic amount of time. 12-hour experiments are no joke, and really beautiful data. So, thank you so much for joining me today, Dr Nguyen and Miss almost Dr D'Addabbo. Congrats and I'm really looking forward to seeing your future work.   Jessica D'Addabbo:    Thank you so much.   Patricia Nguyen:         Thanks so much.   Jessica D'Addabbo:    Thank you for having us.

Gabriela Wijegunawardena is a 43-year-old mother living in Rockville, Maryland, originally from San Francisco, California, where she originally contracted Lyme disease. She is a food blogger and has helped countless individuals in the Lyme disease and tick-borne illness community. Prior to contracting Lyme disease, Ms. Wijegunawardena worked as a NICU nurse at a level III NICU/Regional surgical center for almost 2 decades. She loved traveling with her husband to places like Hawaii, Bali, Spain, Ireland, and London and was an avid hiker. At the age of 35, Ms. Wijegunawardena first began to exhibit symptoms which she later learned were caused by Lyme disease. Some of her symptoms included migraines, insomnia, UTIs, Interstitial Cystitis (IC), edema (swelling caused by fluid in your body tissue), worsening allergies, rosacea and seborrheic dermatitis (inflammatory skin disorders that cause redness, lesions, and itching), and joint issues. Ms. Wijegunawardena saw 45 doctors over 7 years before finally receiving a proper Lyme disease diagnosis. She treated with IV Rocephin (Ceftriaxone) and oral Tindamax for 1 year until more recently when she used Supportive Oligonucleotide Technique (SOT) which got her into remission 6 weeks post-SOT. If you would like to learn how a determined nurse refused to give up and used a new treatment modality that's been borrowed from the Cancer world to reach remission, then tune in now!

How human activity, chemical exposures, and environmental factors combine to contribute to wildlife population declines is at the forefront of the research by Dr. Caroline Moore and other teams at the San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance. Dr. Moore unravels the role of toxicology in wildlife conservation with co-hosts Anne Chappelle and David Faulkner. About the GuestCaroline Moore, PhD, DVM, serves the San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance as a Scientist in Disease Investigations. In this role, she works as a veterinary toxicology researcher, providing molecular and diagnostic toxicology support. She uses toxicology, pathology, molecular diagnostics, and epidemiology to better understand how environmental contaminants, such as heavy metals, pesticides, and harmful algal blooms, create roadblocks to wildlife conservation and how to prevent them.Dr. Moore is working on developing and applying environmental and diagnostic toxicology in Kenya, where pesticides are used indiscriminately; in Peru, where mining activities release mercury into the environment, impacting birds, bats, nonhuman primates, ocelots, and more; and in Zimbabwe, where harmful algal blooms may be an increasing threat. She is especially interested in developing noninvasive in situ diagnostic tests to better understand the challenges to endangered species and how toxicant exposures may impact future generations through altered epigenetics.Dr. Moore earned her bachelor's degree in biochemistry and molecular biology from the University of California Santa Cruz, assisting with necropsies and research on the decline of the southern sea otter. She earned her doctorate in pharmacology and toxicology and her veterinary medical degree at the University of California Davis while on a US Environmental Protection Agency STAR grant investigating how globally present microcystins have toxic effects on the nervous system. She spent the next year as a National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences postdoctoral fellow at the University of California Los Angeles researching how environmental contaminants may cause reproductive toxicity through epigenetics, and the next two years as the SDZWA Steel Endowed Pathology Fellow, establishing successful ways to incorporate more toxicology into conservation field programs. Dr. Moore is an active member of the Society of Toxicology, the American College of Toxicology, and the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, serving on committees and boards for comparative veterinary toxicology, early career professionals, diversity and inclusion, and regional support for Southern California. As an avid hiker, camper, and wildlife enthusiast, Dr. Moore has always felt the need to support conservation efforts through her research.
