Female VO: Welcome to Wellness Revolution Podcast, the radio show all about wellness, in your mind, body, spirit, personal growth, sex, and relationships. Stay tuned for weekly interviews featuring guests that have achieved physical, mental, and spiritual health in their lives. If you'd like to have access to our entire back catalog visit drveronica.com for instant access. And here's your host, Dr. Veronica.

Dr. Veronica: On another episode of Dr. Veronica's Wellness Revolution. You're going to enjoy this like every other episode. You know I always bring you delightful guests because you have to figure out how to be well 360, mind, body, spirit. And one of those ways on figuring it out, we give you all the body stuff and everybody has their formula. We talk about gluten a lot and diets, and autoimmunity, and thyroid, and mediation, and this and that. But we're going to talk about something that you may have never ever heard of. If you have you're one of the few people we need to get this word out there that's why I'm having this lady on.

Sharon Lynn Wyeth is a Neimologist. And we're saying, "Neimologist, what is that?" She's going to explain that to you and how she came up with it. Know your name about what you are meant to be, your life purpose, your spiritual purpose, your path. Have you ever wondered, "Am I on the master path? Am I on the student path? What am I actually here for?" Did you know that your name it's written right in your name? 

Get out your pencil and paper, write down your name. As you hear some of these calls you want to write this down because if you're having in your life struggles, fear, anger, sadness, which is leading you to trigger physical health problems. You got to figure out how do I get rid of it. And part of figuring out to get rid of it is to know thyself. Let's start with your name.

First I'm going to give you the website a lot because you want to go there, knowthename.com. Sharon Lynn Wyeth, welcome to Dr. Veronica's Wellness Revolution.

Dr. Sharon: It's always nice to be here with you Veronica. Thank you for having me.

Dr. Veronica: Let's get a little bit about your background. We're going to talk about names. You have an interesting name. It's spelled Sharon but it's pronounced Sharón. Tell us a bit about your name and how you ended up getting interested in studying names and actually came up with this system.

Dr. Sharon: Okay. First of all on my name, it depends on what part of the world you're in how they pronounce the name Sharon. Sharon is a universal name. It's one of the handful of names that I don't care what country you go to they have that name and it's a common name for them. And in the Middle East Sharon is pronounced Sharón, and that's how I got my Sharón. I always jokingly say it's like, "My, my, my Sharonna" without the A, that good old song by The Knack. 

How I started this was it was in my 7th year of my teaching and I was doing this seating chart at the beginning of the school year, and you randomly put down names because you don't know this student, saying you're just going to put him in some kind of a seating chart. When I was doing that my brain was saying, "Don't put Joshua next to Julie because together they're going to be clowns, and Derrick’s going to need extra help. Put them up close. And Stephanie's going to be stubborn. Put her over to the side so she'll never have to change her seat."

As I was doing this class after class it didn't even dawn on me until I started my fourth class that I'm like, "Wait a minute, I don't know these kids. What am I doing?" And I was doing the same thing when I do [Unintelligible 00:03:48] because you want a good seating chart where everybody's comfortable and likes the people around them but they don't like them too much, because you want them to behave. 

And so when I realized that I didn't know them yet I first felt really guilty because I thought, "Oh my gosh, what am I doing?" And then when I got over the guilt the curiosity came up and I said, "I'm going to write down what my impression is of every person just based on their name because that's all I've got. And I put it aside for 3 months until winter break, and when I looked at it I was really amazed at its accuracy. 

So I my brain is thoroughly trained in patterns being a math major and having my masters and I thought my brain has picked up some kind of a pattern, and now how do I make it conscious. I started with big charts and I put across the top, there was plethora of... David's in my life at the time, and I put across the top all my David's, David [Unintelligible 00:04:40], David Zimmerman, David Landis, all my David’s. And then I said, "What have I observed about these David’s?"

I took each person and I wrote down all the adverbs and adjectives I could use describing that person. And then I said, "What's in common all the way across?" And those had to come from the name David and what's not uncommon had come from the others. I was always making charts and listing comparisons, and putting down observations. 

To make a long story short it took me 15 years to figure out all the nuances. And the first name is the essence of who you are. The middle name is where we go under stress. If we don't have a middle name then who you see is what you get no matter whether you're under stress or not. And your last name represents your environment. You have both nature and nurture all in your name.

Dr. Veronica: Okay. For those of us, many of the people who are watching these type of podcasts are like me, women first of all. And a lot of us women change our name through our lifetime through marriage. How does it make a difference about that because we're just like saying I was born this name. For me my middle name I was given it but I don't use my middle name at all and hardly through life have used my middle name. Talk about these name changes, what we decide to use. I was married one time. Now I'm married to somebody else and I got a different name. I'm simple compared to a lot of people though.

Dr. Sharon: Yes, you are.

Dr. Veronica: What happens is the birth name is literally our contract for this lifetime and what we came to do, who we are, our strengths and our challenges, what we came to learn. That's our birth name. And our birth name doesn't change. Every other name that we use is kind of like a nickname. And that's saying how our personality is evolving and showing differently. If we agree to answer by somebody's nickname then we're only showing them that part of who we really are by calling them in that nickname.

When you compare the birth name and the nickname you'll see what's being hidden, or what's not being shown, or what that person doesn't want to see those aspects of you, the end. Your last name represents your environment. If you're single, first of all you're growing up with your parent's last name and it lets you know what that environment was like when you're growing up. But now that you're getting married, so it lets you know what the marriage environment is like because the last name always lets you know about the environment.

I help a lot of people change their names if they want to, and I always say give me 10 things that you want in other people in your environment, 10 qualities that you want. And then I'll come up with this long list of names that all have that 10 qualities. You wipe out all the ones you don't like the sound of and then I'll tell you what else is in that name besides the 10 qualities that you wanted. Because we want to attract certain people. Winston Churchill, he said, "I want to surround myself with people smarter than me." 

Once I heard that I thought, "That makes sense." What do I want in my last name to balance? And just like I changed my last name eight and a half years ago now, and I made it up based on what I knew. And it changed my whole life came into more balance.

You can make a big difference by just who you're attracting into your world, that's their last name. You go by a nickname and your first name, it says, "I'm going to show you these aspects of me and I'm going to hide or keep private the other ones. Or right now I'm focusing on these aspects of me and I'm not focusing on the other. In the meantime different people will call us different things that we respond to. And they're saying I only need to see this part of you, whatever is in that nickname that you're responding to, that they're calling you. That's the only part of you they want to see. They're not wanting to see all of you.

And the middle name is where we go under stress so even if you don't use it it's still running. It's still there. And if you use it a lot like I do, and like a lot of people do, then it comes into play more often or it's easier to see when it comes into play. But it's still coming into play even if you're not using it because it's part of your birth name.

Dr. Veronica: Interesting. Do titles at all play into it? It's just like somebody's title, maybe Mr., or Mrs., or Ms., or doctor? Or I have a friend who's Dom, or Sir, or Knight, do those titles play into this whole thing at all?

Dr. Sharon: Only when they're used. If they're not used the answer is no. They're only important to the people that are using them when they're calling you. And then you shift to fit that title along with your name. Now you've got protocol or an image to also present besides who you really are. So it makes a difference on how you present the same qualities that you would normally present possibly a different way.

Dr. Veronica: This all seems fascinating and fun but I know it makes a difference in people's lives and I know that you've done work with a lot of people and have helped lots and lots of people in ways that we couldn't imagine. Tell us a little bit about that just because people are saying this is just a little game. It's not just a little game. You've done some remarkable...

Dr. Sharon: I'll start with businesses. HR companies, and I work with some very large companies and some very small companies. And when they get a lot of people applying for a job they'll literally say, "Here's the job description, here's the list of names, narrow it down for me who should I get." And when I was tested over a six month time period for this large company of 400 and something employees and they were constantly growing. He would literally send me the names in the job description. 

At first he did it beforehand but he was working with me once a week. And then after about two months, 10 minutes after we'd started he'd say, "Here's my list." He wanted to make sure I wasn't going onto the web, or trying to look people up, or whatever. At four and a half months what I gave them as my number one and number two was the first time he gave me feedback. He said, "For four and half months my team has interviewed people. They've looked at all the resumes. They've called the references. They take a lot of time and a lot of money to narrow it down and then they recommend a number one and a number two to meet to hire.

He said, "You consistently for four and a half months, in ten minutes or less has given me the exact same number one and number two. But this is the first time my one and two is your two and one. Why did you choose that?" I said, "Well, here was my distinguishing piece, what I was using to make that decision." His response was, "We wouldn't be able to see that. Nobody would give that to us in a reference. Nobody would let us know that. That wouldn't come up in an interview. We wouldn't know that until after we hired the person. And because of your accuracy we're going with you instead of my team." And so they hired the other one. 

But that was literally two and a half years ago and I still work with them on people that they're managing. And I don't have to work with them quite as much simply because they're all learning the system. And the whole role is learn the system so you don't actually don't need me, so I can work myself out of a job, which is kind of scary in a way but really wonderful.

Dr. Veronica: There's too many people in the world. You won't be worked out of a job. People who are hiring and there's a lot of us who were entrepreneurs and I'm thinking, "I'm hiring right now. Maybe I need to put some names in front of you tell me who I need."

Dr. Sharon: Exactly. What is your job description? What do you need? Then the other thing is I'm working with a lot of lawyers on how to do they present a case for this person that they're representing and that judge. What do both of them need to hear? What words ping them? What words will move that judge to go in the favor of this client. What words will I need to say so the client knows I'm fighting on their behalf, so they can hear me.

I work with a lot of lawyers. And then I work with a lot of individuals and a lot of family counseling or individual marriage counseling. There was this group in Hawaii, this one couple that came to me, they'd heard me at this talk and they said, "Do you have any appointments left?" I said, "One. If you can make it, great." 

They came in and they handed me their names. I said, "Oh, you're here because there's a communication problem? And they just looked at me and nodded their heads." I said, "Okay. Normally I will go a little bit with the woman and a little bit with the man." But I looked at the man and I said, "You're here under duress. You don't really want to be here according to your name." He goes, "You're right. But she talked me into it." I said, "I'm going to do the whole process with her so you can see it all and feel safe and then I'll do it with you." 

I asked him, "It looks to me like after two years your relationship's kind of going to the dump. Would you like to know why?" I had to ask him three times before he said yes, but he did say this is my fifth relationship that at the two year mark and here we're having problems. And I thought I'm not surprised. Do you want to know why? And it took him a while before he said yes. And finally when he did I said, "It's because you're so needing to be in charge and in control all the time that you would rather be right than have a relationship. And you don't know how to apologize when you're wrong."

And I said it first. The woman says, "When he gets more comfortable that'll go away or that'll change. And at the two year mark they realize that's not going to go away and that's not going to change. And so then they say, "I don't want to live with somebody who can't apologize and always has to be right and the one in charge." And then they break up. And the coolest part about that one and why I remember them is because we had a lot of talking and they said often, "Oh my gosh, we're just talking about that." Because it all shows up in the name and you can get right to the bottom of it. There's no fooling around. 

But that evening my host that had sponsored me over there took me to this wonderful event that had like a thousand people in the audience. And they found me, they came down at intermission, and they said they had done nothing but talk since they had the session. And most people now have new tools and they're going to improve their relationships. And this couple said, "We decided it was going to be way too much work for us to stay together. But the nicest part is we know why it doesn't work and neither one of us has resentment or hurt feelings. We can let this one go without saying I wish I coulda, shoulda, woulda, and second guessing. And we can go and still be friends."

Dr. Veronica: Let's get deeper into that because a lot of people for all kinds of reasons you're happier, you're healthier when you're in a good relationship. But there are many people, both men and women, who feel like they have difficulty picking the right partner for them, or they're attracting the right partner.

When you talk about the couple I'm thinking what was it about her name that made her choose that guy. What did you know about her, or what can we know about ourselves that we're making this choice.  "My name is Liz and this is why I'm choosing that."

Dr. Sharon: In a private session all of that comes out. You're going to say who you're attracting, what you're looking for, what turns you on in essence, and what makes you excited about somebody else? It's kind of like that movie When Harry Met Sally. Before they ever met I could've told you they were both into books and reading extensively. They were both workaholics but they both couch potatoes. We could go through them and say what they had in common before they ever met. They were both very likeable, very charismatic people. 

And so it shows up in your name what it is that are your strengths and what you're looking for in somebody else. And then when you have a session often people will say, "What do I want to look for?" And I'll start saying where the letters are. These are the letters you're looking for in these key positions because those are the ones that are going to carry the qualities that you're wanting.

Dr. Veronica: Okay. You just led right into a good question. We've talked before and I've mentioned this but I thought it was interesting. My husband when I met him I always felt like when I looked at his name it was smiling at me. I looked at it. I still look at it now. It just seems like it's smiling at me. What is that all about? My husband is not born in this country so he doesn't have a name that's very common. It's a name pretty much I'd never heard before I met him, but it smiles at me. What do we see in something like that?

Dr. Sharon: Okay. Just to clue your audience in, what's his name and how do you spell it?

Dr. Veronica: His name is A-B-E-L D-E-D-E-G-B-E.

Dr. Sharon: Okay. With all those E's to begin with, first of all in his name he had a lot of self-confidence. And you very much want somebody that has self-confidence because you don't want to mother them, you wanted an equal.

Dr. Veronica: Oh gosh, that's so true.

Dr. Sharon: That was very masculine so that you could be very feminine. And so he's got that in his name. You also, because you're naturally intuitive you wanted somebody else that could almost read your mind. That would know you so well that you wouldn't have to talk all the time. He would just know what you wanted. He could finish your sentences for you. He'll get the picture without you having to describe every corner, nick, and noony of the picture. And so he's able to do that and you found that very attractive.

You also needed somebody who was driven, who wanted to accomplish, who wanted to be able to compete, who could stand up and hold their own. And you needed that and he's got that in his name. So that was very attractive. You wanted a very strong individual and yet one that didn't have to be in charge. They could share. Sometimes you're in charge, sometimes he's in charge. That he was masculine enough and knew himself well enough that he didn't have to always be the guy in the lead position. And he's got all of that in his name. So looking at your name and his name, that's what attracted you.

Dr. Veronica: That's amazing. The audience has to know it's amazing that you've described us perfectly and how we interact perfectly. You guys might be saying, "You know her." No, we've only talked a few times on interviews. I met her at a conference one time and that's it. And I said, "That's fascinating. I got to interview you sometimes." 

We met and I had one name. And then I chose to change my name. I was married before, and when I was married before for whatever reason I was never comfortable with his name. Now, with my current husband Abel I'm comfortable using his name. I like using his name. This is my second husband, but my first husband had a complicated name too. It was something nobody had ever heard of. Now I have a husband name nobody ever heard of it. In fact my husband's name they can tell the origin of the name because he comes from a place in West Africa. They can tell the language and what it means and all that other type of stuff. What happened with me where I never felt good with that name, whereas now I feel comfortable.

Dr. Sharon: Without giving away the first husband's name and without knowing it, I'm going to say that there are certain letters that we all have in our names that are communication [Unintelligible 00:20:11] with somebody else’s name. Also there's certain letter combinations that each one of us has that we go ugh when we have that kind of person.

If you're talking to anybody you will notice if you talk to them long enough that there's one name that they've met a lot of people with that have that same name and they don't like that name. They learned to have a prejudice against a particular name. That is because there are six different communication styles that show up names. And I put them on a wheel. 

When you have the one that's directly opposite the other one, unless they know how to deal with that it's very uncomfortable. And those are the people that you feel don't get you. And so then you don't want to say their name or be around them so much. Because it's like you naturally know we're miscommunicating. I'm not understood when I talk to this person.

Dr. Veronica: Wow, interesting that you're going to marry somebody like that. Let's move on. So that everybody can look at their name and figure out something about them, you talk about the placement of vowels, consonants, the first vowel is this and the last vowel is that and all that. Go over some of that so we could start learning and looking at the paper, and understanding how powerful this is.

Dr. Sharon: Okay. The first letter in the first name is your first impression that you're giving out to people, the first vowel in the first name regardless of what letter, first, second, third, fourth position it has, that's your communication style, you're learning style, a lot of your attributes sit right there. Then you have these middle letters that it takes a lot of people a long time to get to know you before they start showing themselves.

And then the last letter in the first name is the letter that everybody talks about you behind your back when they say, "Oh, do you know this one?" And then they go, "Oh yeah, I do." And they always mention what's that last letter because it's their lasting impression of you.

If we're talking about the communication style and just some of the things that are in the first vowel in the first name. If you have an A these are the people that are workaholics but they're also coach potatoes. They don't need to be the one in charge but they need to work for somebody who's confident. Because if that person's not confident they'll slowly take over and do that job and their job because work always comes first. These are the people that I always laughingly say keep the books stores in order, but it's anything. It's magazines, it's whatnot. They have to be reading. They have to be learning. They have to be growing at all times because that's really important to them. 

And so a gift certificate to a bookstore is a wonderful gift because they'll always find something in there that they like. And that's just a very short synopsis and they're very visual learners. If you're presenting something to an A you want to have it where they can look at it, because that way it goes into the memory and it's easier for them to get. 

Then A-E. If your first vowel is an E I always call these the detectives. They want to know the background and the story of everybody they meet, what's behind them, what's going on, what makes them tick, and who are they really. So I think of them as the detectives. They also have a natural way of beauty in the world. They will notice like say there's a crooked picture on the wall. When they walk in by they're straightening it up because it looks better straightened out than when it's crooked. And they have a great sense of humor. They like to play. They like to have fun. Work is fun.

Just to show you the contrast, when an A goes to work they immediately go to work. "We got to do A, B, C, and D. When our job's done then we'll visit with everybody else." When an E goes to work they have to visit everybody, know that everybody's okay, and then they can go to work. They're just opposites on how they start. If you don't understand that their opposites then it becomes a conflict. But it's up to the A to learn the E's way of being and to adapt. It is not up to the E to learn the A's.

Then we have the I and the O. The I's are always family oriented. We get all of our lessons in life, they come in one of three packages. They're either health or their relationships, or their financial and resources. And so the I people get theirs not only through relationships but they say want to major in family relationships. And so the good, bad, and the ugly is on family. A lot of times the I person will say, "Oh yeah, I don't have any family issues because I don't talk to any of them." The important thing they came to learn how to do, and that is how do you get along with all these diverse personalities and not let them eat your life.

The I's love to be included. So if you know somebody who's first vowel is an I, if you're going bowling, even if they don't like to bowl you say, "Would you like to go bowling with us?" And even if it's your 100th time to go bowling and they've told you no 99 times you still ask them. And the reason for that is then they know that they were wanted and they love that even though they're going to say no again. And you all know they're going to say no. You still ask them. Because being included is very important. 

And they are the natural leaders. If the boss says something you didn't quite get it. You don't go to the boss you go to an I because they'll give it to you. They're the natural ones that were comfortable to work with.

Then there's the O and they're also leaders but they're usually the assigned leaders and they love to be the boss. They love to tell other people what to do. They nurture other people. They have so many balls up in the air they're constantly throwing balls up. And they love to see how many balls they can get up in the air and never drop one. And they love to just boss and let other people know what to do and how to do it, if it's right or if it's wrong and everything. And then they nurture other people around them to the best of their ability. 

The thing that hurts them the most is if somebody's not loyal. Because they say, "Hey look, I was so good to you and now you're not loyal back." And what that looks like is if you bad mouth anybody that they care about. Then they hold it against you and not against the other person even if what you said was true. It doesn't matter, you're bad mouthing somebody. That's not loyalty. And they hold loyalty above everything else.

Just like the A and the E, come at things from opposite directions and the A needs to be the one that learns the E. The I and the O come at things from opposite directions, natural leadership versus assigned leadership. And the O needs to learn the way of the I, the I doesn't need to learn the way of the O. It doesn't work. And O's love money, everything. You give them a present it's like how much they love me. The O [Unintelligible 00:26:26] everything by money. 

Then you have the U and the Y. The U is the other one with a great sense of humor and they love to be unique. And they love things that are different and they love experiences, and they're just fun. The have attention span about the size of the mat because it just goes. And conversations with them will go all over everywhere and eventually will circle back around. 

And so to keep up with a U, and they're great storytellers, you're going to have to be able to flow with the conversation and not be very linear because that would drive you nuts. But the U's always see the big picture where the A's and the O's are looking at the details. And so if you're putting a committee together you want big picture people along with detailed people because you want the whole thing. 

And the U's are just a lot of fun. They  are what I call entertainers. And some of them will say, "I'm not very entertaining." But it's how they put their words together and how they describe things we're all just fascinated, because they just have a unique way about them. 

Then the Y's are the spiritual seekers. They're always questioning everything. It's always like they're looking to keep finding. It doesn't matter what they know or how much they know they're always looking to find even more. And the Y is not a very often used vowel and they can be the boss' boss. It's the only one that the O will yield to.

What's also interesting about the Y is that Y's like to make things even or what I call get revenge. If you do something that's upsetting to a Y, it doesn't matter how long it takes but the right time, at the right place, whatever, they're going to get it back. They're going to somehow even the score. And they'll never let you know that you tweaked them somehow but they'll just get even down the road somewhere. 

That's a real challenge and I always think that's the vowel that you're the most cautious around because you have to really get to know them before you're going to express yourself very much because if not you don't know if you're tweaking something or not.

Dr. Veronica: Okay. That just gives us a little bit of a nutshell. Everybody's got go to knowthename.com. I want to say that again just because you start learning these things and you're like, "I need to know more." I always look at things related to how it affects people. 

Physically people are always worried about their aches and pains, and their problems physically and that's why they originally come to me. They're having some type of physical ailment. But me being the medical intuitive I am always understand there's something underlying that. I need to come to your workshop. Is there a way that we could look at our name and know something about our physical ailments or what we're likely, where we're weak, or what we need to be careful of?

Dr. Sharon: The answer is yes. But I'm still in the research phase of that and I'm just almost ready to start testing it and fine tuning it. I've been doing that research for a long time. For example the people with an A-N combination in their name, usually at some time in their life will have immune challenges. The people with an A-R in their name will sometime in their life have a problem with their throat. They'll get the strep throat or they'll have throat issues or whatever. There are certain combinations that are lending themselves naturally to a certain part of the body.

I started doing this with collecting people's names and ailments trying to find enough to get the patterns sorted out literally because I've watched astrologers tell other people this is the weak link area in your body. And those people then say, "Well then if kidneys are the weak link I'm not going to drink. Or if the heart's the weak link then I'm not going to do something else." 

I've watched astrologers do that with different people and I thought wouldn't that be wonderful if we could do that in our names. Because I know the information is there it's just sorting it all out. And so I'm getting close to starting the testing phase.

Dr. Veronica: Exciting. I can't wait to know all that.

Dr. Sharon: Yeah, eventually it'll be know the name, know the health.

Dr. Veronica: I like that, know the name, know the health. Talk a little bit about your workshops. You have the books that people can read. I've read and I'm like I need to know more. Talk about the workshops that you put on for people.

Dr. Sharon: About every three months I put on a workshop and I keep them fairly small because I want to make sure everybody really gets it. And we go through and we cover all the chapter 6, 7, and 8 in level 1. And then we cover chapter 6, 7, and 8 in level 2. There's two levels. By the end of level 1 unless you want to do fine tuning and very subtle things you have so much information you could literally give somebody an hour reading because we go through all of it. 

And because I've been a school teacher for so many years I give you all the mnemonic devices how you can remember all of this. And then I show you shortcuts and how to read it so you can instantly know when you're meeting somebody new whether they're safe, they're not safe, you can trust them, you don't want to trust them. Maybe you can trust with them but not with money, but you can trust them in other things. It all comes out of that workshop and all the hidden stuff and how to remember it.

And then there's a lot of tricks and devices. And I also show you how to tell if that's a good address for you. There's all kinds of things that I show up, like what years of your life you're focusing on what and how do you figure that out for anybody. Where is my focus now and when is it going to change? And then what's my focus going to be? 

There's so many things in a name and it's 15 hours. It took me 15 years to figure this all out and I tested it for 3 years in over 72 countries. The first level is 15 hours and you're literally given enough that you could give somebody an hour reading and then you can charge for it because then you're certified. 

And then I have level 2 where you get all the subtleties, and that's when you can start working with the businesses.

Dr. Veronica: The workshop's two days?

Dr. Sharon: It's 15 hours and it's either two days or what I like to do is Friday night, all day Saturday, and then Sunday morning.

Dr. Veronica: Okay. That sounds good. So we can take a little bit of a long weekend but be back to work on Monday.

Dr. Sharon: Right. You can fly out Friday, you can fly home Sunday afternoon. And you squish that whole weekend in and it's going to feel like you were here a long time because of so much information you get. And you go home with cheat cards. You just lay out your cards and you just start reading everybody.

Dr. Veronica: That sounds beautiful. Your website Know The Name. We know that you're working on the health. Just one little thing before we close. We only got about five more minutes. What about people who have a different language? My son learned to speak Mandarin and the characters are completely different. What to do you do with languages like that?

Dr. Sharon: I spent a year in China and I spent two years in Japan trying to figure out the kanji, the hanji, and seeing how it correlated with the letters. What I can tell you is you need to have a much deeper understanding of that than what I was able to get in that amount of time.

What I did do when I tested it around the world is as long as they're using our letter system, the same one that we use it works. And every one there'll be a tweak and that's in the book in the What If chapter. For example in Germany when two vowels go walking the second one does the talking. In English when two vowels go walking the first one does the talking. When you're going into the diphthongs that you're given with two vowels together and what they mean, if you're a German name you just need to reverse them and then you get the right meaning.

Very few things like that, but it did give me the symbols. I traveled enough and got enough details, so like the tilde, and the accents, and the people that had numbers. It went by a number for a while and so their name. Anyway, all of that is in the What If chapter.

Dr. Veronica: Okay, knowthename.com, we can go there to find out when you're having the workshops. I know you're located geographically in Florida. Do you do it down there where we can come have good weather in the middle of the winter?

Dr. Sharon: I usually do Florida, I usually do Texas, I usually do San Diego. And then I'll pick one northern place every year.

Dr. Veronica: No northern places, but I know northern people want to be northern. Those of us who are more northern want to come some place hot.

Dr. Sharon: It depends on the time of the year. In the summer we all want to go north.

Dr. Veronica: It's true. Sharon thank you so much. This about people learning about themselves, but also learning how to manage the world and their stresses, and by people understanding just by knowing somebody's name what's going on. I think that lowers the stress because it allows you to be understanding. And just like that couple who realized, "We're not supposed to be together, but we're not going to hate on each other. We realized that we're just different and it was just meant to be that way. And it's not that you're bad or I'm bad, it's just our names don't go together." Thank you so much, knowthename.com, Sharon Lynn Wyeth.

Dr. Sharon: Always a pleasure Veronica. Thank you.

Dr. Veronica: Thanks again for joining for another episode of Dr. Veronica's Wellness Revolution. We're going to talk today. I want to jump right into this. I want to have enough time to be able to talk to this gentleman who is a guru. The gentleman I have with me today is Dr. Thomas O'Bryan. He is originally a doctor of chiropractic medicine, but you know what I've found? I feel really silly sometimes because I feel like I went to school before medical school with the chiropractors and I was getting really good grades and they weren't doing as well. And I felt like all these people they're not so smart at going into chiropractor. Then I realized on the back half of my career that I was the dumb one and they're the smart one and I better learn from them.

So those of us who were the conventional smart doctors have now kind of thrown away a lot of what we learned. We know about the body and all that, and jumped in the pool with our colleagues because we're all colleagues out to help people get well who were the chiropractors of natural path and nutritionists. And we all collectively are out there getting the word out on how you can heal your own body.

Dr. Thomas O'Bryan has a new book out there, The Autoimmune Fix. I see so many people every day who say, "I've been told I have autoimmune disease and they haven't quite given it a name but I have autoimmune disease." 

The Autoimmune Fix talks about this but also talks about what's been going on in the health care system. What's been going on or not going on when you'd go to your doctor and here's the latest and greenest. And we also have a surprise coming up on some information that you can get where you can go and hear the world experts in autoimmune disease. Dr. Thomas O'Bryan, welcome to Dr. Veronica's Wellness Revolution.

Dr. Thomas: Thank you so much. It's a pleasure to be with you. Thank you.

Dr. Veronica: First define for us what it's meant by autoimmune disease? Because as I told you and I said in the intro I get a lot of people who said, "I've been told I have autoimmune." The big diagnosis these days is, "I have Hashimoto's." Every other person has Hashimoto's. "Oh, you have an autoimmune disease too. Autoimmune disease, give us the definition.

Dr. Thomas: Sure. Your immune system is the armed forces in your body. It's the army, the Air Force, the Marines, the Coast Guard, the Navy. It's there to protect you. And it's all we have to protect us. And you have exactly the same immune system that your ancestors had thousands of years ago. We haven't genetically changed. 

What was it that our immune system was designed to fight? Parasites, bugs, viruses, molds, and fungus. That's it. There was no Polysorbate 80, or red dye number 3, or Bisphenol A, or mercury in the fish. There weren’t any of the toxins that we're supposed to every day. So our immune system is the same as our ancestors, so it's built to protect us from parasites, bugs, viruses, molds, and fungus. There is no way for it to adapt.

When you get exposed to Bisphenol A for example, which is the chemical that softens plastic like water bottles, or pop bottles, or soft contact lenses, or credit card receipts have Bisphenol A. There is just millions and millions of pounds of this stuff being dumped every year here. 

But when you're exposed to Bisphenol A this chemical gets into your body and it binds on to your cells. It grabs to on to proteins inside your body like an estrogen cell or a testicular cell. Now the immune system that's there to protect you from bugs, parasites, viruses, molds, and fungus has to attach this molecule that got in there that's not supposed to be there. "This is an invader. What is this thing?" 

Your immune system attacks this Bisphenol molecule or lead molecule if you have lead poisoning, where mercury molecule, and you create this inflammation as the immune system is trying to destroy this invader. And the inflammation has collateral damage which damages your own cell that the Bisphenol A grabbed on to. And now your immune system has just damaged your cell. When the immune system attacks yourself it's called an autoimmune mechanism. It's the immune system attacking cells. 

In the example I just gave you we make antibodies every day to ourself. There's a normal reference range for thyroid antibodies and brain antibodies. There's a normal range, why? Because your immune system is the garbage collector. It's got to get rid of the old and damaged cells, the ones that are breaking down or just worn out to make room for new cells to be built. 

You have a whole new body every 7 years. We regenerate every cell in our body. But to make room for cells to regenerate you've got to get rid of the old and damaged ones. There's a normal level of thyroid antibodies. It's normal. But when you have a chemical binding on to the thyroid for this example, the chemical might be chlorine or it could be Bisphenol A binding to a thyroid cell, and your immune system says, "What is this stuff? That's not good for me. I better attack it. 

Your immune system attacks that cell and causes the inflammation that damages the thyroid that the Bisphenol A's grabbed on to. Now the antibodies that your body makes to get rid of old thyroid cells, it has to make some more antibodies to get rid of the damaged thyroid Bisphenol A cell, because the thyroid cell's been damaged you got to get rid of it. So you make some extra antibodies to your thyroid.

That's not a problem. But you're exposed to Bisphenol A every day. One hundred percent of the infants born today have Bisphenol A in their urine, 100% of them, because mom has it. Mom's toxic with this stuff, right? It binds on to your cells. And so every day you're exposed to this stuff, and then your body makes more antibodies to your thyroid to get rid of the damaged thyroid cell that the Bisphenol A was grabbing on to. And you make more thyroid cells. 

And if you did a blood test you'd see you had a high thyroid antibody levels and you make more thyroid antibodies. Until one day this thyroid antibody production becomes self-perpetuating. It's got a life of its own. Now you develop the autoimmune disease, so you're on the autoimmune spectrum with elevated antibodies, but now it moves into an autoimmune disease because you've killed off enough thyroid cells because of the elevated antibodies, the thyroid can't function very well anymore. That's the autoimmune disease. 

Mrs. Patient, you pull at a chain, the chain always breaks at the weakest link. It's at one end, the middle, the other end, your heart, your brain, your liver, your kidneys, wherever your genetic weak link is that's where the chain's going to break when you pull too hard. Inflammation is the pull on the chain. 

That's why we here about anti-inflammatory lifestyles. It's that you want to live as much of an anti-inflammatory lifestyle with all that that means. And your show talks about that a lot, about anti-inflammatory lifestyles, so that you don't have that link of the chain break and get an autoimmune disease. What's pulling on the chain?

What's pulling on the chain is the gasoline or the kerosene that you're getting in your body, if it's air pollution or if it's food you're eating that aren't good for you. The question is it a kidney or a brain cell, is it gasoline or kerosene? When you want to start fixing these problems you have to ask the questions, "Where is my immune system attacking right now and why is my immune system attacking there?" That's the way you uncover what the mechanism is that's causing the diseases that we have.

Dr. Veronica: Talk a little bit about thyroid because I think all of us that are in the functional medicine wellness arena, the thyroid people come in because they just seem for whatever reason they're the most miserable... There's other miserable people, but the thyroid people seem to be miserable and go seek their help. Why thyroid and why mostly women, although there's a lot of men now prop up with it.

Dr. Thomas: Yeah, but the ratio of women to men with Hashimoto's is 9:1. It's much more prevalent in women. There's a number of reasons for that. The first reason is receptor sites are catcher's mitts. The pitcher throws the ball to the catcher. You have receptor sites on the outside of your cells facing the bloodstream. So as the blood's going by it goes past these receptor sites. Hormones get inside the cell to do whatever they're supposed to do by going through the receptor site.

Estrogen in your bloodstream only goes into an estrogen receptor site. It won't go into a thyroid receptor site. And it goes into the estrogen receptor site, it opens the door and the estrogen goes inside the cell and the body will do what it's going to do. Insulin won't go into an estrogen receptor site, it won't go into a thyroid receptor site. It only goes into an insulin receptor site. All the hormones have specific receptor sites. There are chemicals that we're exposed to now every day, never before in the history of humanity but now every day. And there are three chemicals known to compete on thyroid receptor sites. 

Now, back up for a minute. There's only two substances for which there are receptor sites on every cell of your body. No, it's not testosterone, no not estrogen, no not insulin, the only substances for which there are receptor sites on every cell of your body are vitamin D... That's why vitamin D is so important for us because every cell needs it, and thyroid hormone. Because your thyroid hormone is the thermostat on the wall in your house. 

At night you turn the thermostat down so the furnace goes down. It's colder in the house, so that you sleep and you save fuel. In the morning it automatically turns back on before you get up, and so it warms up the house but you save fuel during the night. Thyroid hormone controls the thermostat. That's called your metabolism and how hot your cells burn, how many calories you burn, that's your thyroid hormone. Every cell needs control as to how hot it should burn, that's what thyroid hormone does.

Thyroid hormones in the bloodstream, and it goes past the thyroid receptor site and it goes right into it. It opens the door and the thyroid hormone goes into the cell. As you know many people will feel like they've got thyroid symptoms. They come in and the doctor does a blood test and sees that their thyroid hormone levels are normal but they've got thyroid symptoms so they write a prescription for thyroid hormone. And we're shot gunning thyroid hormone into someone that has normal levels because it's going to help feel a little better.

How is it possible that their thyroid hormone levels are normal but a blood test that many doctors do is called TSH and it's a measure in the brain telling the thyroid how much hormone to make. TSH stands for thyroid stimulating hormone. How come the TSH can be a little high but the thyroid hormone levels are normal? And you see that all the time in practice. We all see that. How does that happen? It's because the thyroid hormone is not getting into the cell, it's in the bloodstream. Your bloodstream's just a highway. There's lots of traffic on the highway so you do a blood test and you're looking for are there Chevrolet's on the highway. Is there a thyroid hormone on the highway.

There's enough hormone but it's not getting into the cell, so the brain says, "I need more thyroid hormone in these cells." The TSH goes up to say, "Make more hormone, make hormone." But you've got plenty of hormones. And doctor shot gunned with synthetic hormone and people will feel a little bit better. It doesn't fix them but they feel a little better. 

How come the thyroid hormone is not getting into the cell? Because there are three chemicals that compete and will go into thyroid hormone receptor sites. But when they go into thyroid hormone receptor sites they don't open the door. They just sit there. The pitcher throws a fastball to the catcher but the catcher's got three baseballs in the mitt. And so the fastball just bounces out. The thyroid hormone just keeps going down the bloodstream, it can't get in. 

What are the chemicals that compete in thyroid receptor sites? The most common one... Mrs. Patient, you're in an elevator in a hotel. The elevator doors open. Can you tell right away the swimming pools on that floor? Oh yeah. They smell it. But everybody else in the elevator can't smell it. But they smell it. Why do they smell it? Because they have a chlorine sensitivity. Their detox capabilities are not breaking down the chlorine, so the chlorine is sitting in the receptor sites of the thyroid hormone. 

So the thyroid hormone is going by, it can't get into the cell. The thyroid hormone keeps going by, and yet the brain says, "I need more hormone. I need more hormone," and it's chlorine. It's a very common competitor for thyroid receptor sites. Those women, especially the women, cold hands and feet, sometimes they wear socks to bed, or your husband says you got really cold feet. You can't get up in the morning. You wish you had 20 more minutes in bed. Can't lose that last 5 pounds even if you don't eat for a couple of days. Bowels are sluggish, emotions are kind of sluggish, brain's sluggish, you kind of feel a little depressed, all signs of a sluggish thyroid. 

Your thyroid hormone levels are normal but your doctor gives you thyroid hormone anyway because we know it's going to help a little bit. And they haven't had the chance to read about this competitive inhibition of chlorine into the thyroid receptor sites. That's a very common mechanism for thyroid dysfunction. How does that relate in terms of autoimmunity?

Dr. Veronica: Let me just interrupt. Because you said there are three things, and you mentioned the chlorine, but tell people the other two that go along with chlorine just because people are going to start connecting the dots and say, "That could be me."

Dr. Thomas: You won't like this. Fluoride is very, very common. It's a very common thyroid inhibitor substance. It's in your toothpaste, it's in your mouthwash, it's in your drinking water and it competes on thyroid receptor sites. And the result is your thyroid hormone doesn't work as well as supposed to. You gain weight, you feel sluggish, sometimes you can pack on an extra 20-30 pounds over five years that it just creeps up little by little by little. Fluoride is the second one. The third one is bromide. 

So it's chlorine, fluoride, and bromide. Bromide is in baked goods. A lot of bromide is used in baked goods. Those are the three chemicals that will compete on thyroid receptor sites. And they don't breakdown, they just stay there.

Dr. Veronica: Okay. That's chemicals. I know you're an expert on another food that everybody loves and when you tell them they have to give it up they want to murder you practically because they're addicted. Talk about that food. You don't have to talk to me about...

Dr. Thomas: Unfortunately it's the most common food in America today. It's 132.5 pounds per person per year that we're eating. That's wheat. You have toast for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch, a pasta for dinner, croutons on your salad, a cookie or a muffin, and it goes on a day, after a week, after a month, after year, after year. 

Harvard's published another study last year. Hollon and his team published a study and they showed that every single human when they eat wheat gets intestinal permeability. The slang term is leaky gut. And that's the gateway into the development of autoimmune diseases that we'll talk about a little bit later, but that's the gateway.

And every single person, every time they eat wheat, not just once in a while, every time. And their language was all humans develop intestinal permeability. Anyone that's watching this interview, if you're a human, I think most of you are, that means every time you eat wheat you get tears in your lining in your gut. It's called pathogenic intestinal permeability. Even for those that don't feel bad.

Those that feel bad when they eat wheat they're the blessed ones. Because you can't argue with them, they know when they eat it they get sick. But the ones where the weak link in the chain is their brain they don't want to associate the pasta they had last night with the brain fog they've got today. They just don't want to associate it, or with seizures. 

In the Journal of Gastroenterology children with drug resistant seizures, that means that they've been to at least two specialists and they've tried at least three drugs before they can get the classification of drug resistant seizures, 50% of those children go into complete remission on a wheat-free diet. Why don't our neurologists know this? Because it's in the gastroenterology journal, and neurologists don't read gastroenterology journals, they read neurology journals. So they just don't know this. Wheat can affect any tissue of your body. I'm going to give you an example of how it affects the thyroid.

When you eat wheat, Mrs. Patient. Proteins are like a pearl necklace, hydrochloric acid made in your stomach undoes the clasp of the pearl necklace. Now you have a string of pearls. Our digestive enzymes are supposed to act like scissors to break the pearl necklace into smaller clumps of pearls, then smaller clumps, and smaller clumps, and smaller clumps. Until they get broken down into each pearl of the pearl necklace. That's called an amino acid. And the amino acids go right through the walls of the intestines, and then your body uses those as building blocks to make a new muscle, or a new bone, or a new nerve hormones called neurotransmitters that your body uses the amino acids. 

Your intestines are 20-25 feet long. It starts at the mouth and goes to the other end. It's one long tube. It kind of winds around in your abdomen. It twists around quite a bit, but it's one long tube. If you could take a doughnut and stretch a doughnut straight down and look down the doughnut it's one tube. When you swallow food it's not in your body yet, it's still in the tube. It's got to go through the walls to get into the bloodstream and go everywhere else in your body.

But there's a cheesecloth that lines the intestines so that only the single pearls of the pearl necklace can fit through the cheesecloth to get into the bloodstream, only the amino acids. The problem with wheat is that no human can breakdown the pearl necklace in each pearl of the pearl necklace. The best we can do is break it into clumps of pearls. There's a 33-pearl clump, a 17-pearl clump, an 11-pearl clump. And these clumps of pearls are gasoline and the fire in the intestines. They cause inflammation. And it's the inflammation that tears the cheesecloth. When you tear the cheesecloth now larger clunks of the pearl necklace of any food can go through the permeability into the bloodstream before there's been enough time for the digestive enzymes to break that food going down the track until it's small enough to get through. Does that make sense?

Dr. Veronica: Yeah.

Dr. Thomas: You got these clumps of pearls going through into the bloodstream. They're called macro molecules, big molecules. And your immune system says, "What's this? This is not good for me. I better fight this. If you had prime rib for dinner and you chew it three or four times instead of the 15-20 that you should... You chew a couple of times and swallow it down, we shovel more than we chew and you shovel it down you got this clump of stringy meat that's kind of hard to break down. And the enzymes are trying to cut off each pearl of the pearl necklace but it takes a while. That's why you got 20 feet of intestines for the scissors to work on that. 

So it's going down in the first part of the intestines now, but there are tears in the cheesecloth. So these macro molecules of prime rib get into the bloodstream. Your immune systems says, "Whoa, I better fight this." Now you make antibodies to beef, and you're allergic to beef, or to bananas, or to chicken, or to potatoes, or to cantaloupe. 

And the doctor that does the 90-food panel to see what foods a person is sensitive to, and it comes back with 20-25 foods and the patient goes, "Oh my god, that's everything I eat." Of course it is, because your body is trying to protect you. You don't shut down the immune system, you stop the tears of the cheesecloth. So you have to find out why is the cheesecloth tearing. And when you find out why the cheesecloth is tearing then 6 months to a year later you check again the 90 foods, now you're sensitive to two or three and not 20.

That's the mechanism in the development of intestinal permeability, the leaky gut. Let's tie that now to the thyroid. How does this trigger an autoimmune thyroid disease? When this macro molecule of beef gets into the bloodstream and your immune system says, "Whoa, what's this?" The brain says, "You General, you now are General Beef. Take care of this." 

General Beef builds an assembly line. The assembly line starts producing soldiers. They're called antibodies. The soldiers are trained to go after beef, that's all they do. They're in the bloodstream looking for beef. And when they see beef clumps they fire their chemical bullets to destroy the beef clumps. Remember your bloodstream's just a highway. There's no lanes of traffic. Everything's bouncing around in there. It's going in the same direction but it's bouncing around. 

Think of the antibodies like Arnold Schwarzenegger and he's got his head out of the big Humvee. He's got those dark glasses on. He's got a big submachine gun. "Over there." And he's firing these chemical bullets at beef because he's been trained to go after beef. 

The beef macro molecule may be 15 amino acids long because it hadn't had enough time to be broken down into each pearl of the pearl necklace. So there's 15 amino acids there and Arnold has been trained to go after what anything that looks like that 15 amino acids. I'm going to sat AA, B, C, D, but it really is 15 letters long in this example.

Let's say Arnold is going after wheat because wheat got in, it tears the cheesecloth, it gets in as a macro molecule. Your immune system makes antibodies to wheat. I said beef to start with but I'm going to talk about wheat now.

Let's say Arnold's looking for AA, B, C, D. Bouncing around in the bloodstream looking for AA, B, C, D. He's got these dark glasses on. The surface of your thyroid facing the bloodstream is made up of proteins and fats. That's what the surface is made of facing the bloodstream. Proteins are made up of amino acids. There are hundreds of amino acids long, the surface of the proteins of the thyroid, hundreds of amino acids long. But part of the thyroid includes AA, B, C, D. 

Arnold that's looking for wheat, AA, B, C, D, he's like, "Oh look, over there." And he fires his chemical bullets at the thyroid to damage the thyroid cell because it's got AA, B, C, D. That's called molecular mimicry. And it's a big problem for people today, they just don't know it. It's a big problem as to why autoimmune disease is so prevalent. 

Arnold starts firing his chemical bullet at the thyroid damaging the thyroid cell. Remember you have a normal amount of thyroid cells but now you have to make a few extra because there's more damaged thyroid cells than normal. That's after having toast for breakfast. But now you have a sandwich for lunch. More Arnold, more damage to the thyroid, AA, B, C, D, if that's the weak link in your chain. 

If it's your brain Arnold goes after your brain with molecular mimicry. If it's your kidneys Arnold goes after your kidneys with molecular mimicry. It just depends on what the weak link is in your chain. With wheat it doesn't matter because AA, B, C, D is very common to the structure of the human body. It's a component of... If you think of proteins like it's big, long brick wall, many colors of bricks in there, but there's this pattern. Any time you see that pattern, "Oh look it's there. Oh look it's over too. Oh, it's there too. And that's AA, B, C, D in our bodies. It's very common in our bodies. 

So whoever the weak link is in your chain that's where Arnold's going to go. And then you have to make more antibodies to your thyroid until this antibody production to your thyroid becomes self-perpetuating. Now you're on the autoimmune spectrum, killing off your thyroid in this example or your thyroid, killing off cells, until eventually you've killed off so many cells now you're starting to get cold hands and feet, or it's hard to wake up in the morning. Now your thyroid's not working so well for you.

You go to a doctor and they take your thyroid hormone. The hormone levels are normal but you're not functioning very well. And they don't check to look for the autoimmunity that's causing all the inflammation in your thyroid and killing off the cells in your thyroid. That's the autoimmune spectrum.

Dr. Veronica: Okay. First of all I love your analogies. They're just so beautiful. Thank you. I'm into this story and I'm just like... When you've heard the story before and explained in the medical health and all the lingo with all the stuff behind it it's like, "I've heard about that." But with the Arnold Schwarzenegger behind it with glasses it's like...

Dr. Thomas: Yeah, it helps.

Dr. Veronica: Thank you so much for that. I would've jumped over because that's a beautiful explanation. Now you're talking about the autoimmune fix and we talked a little bit before we came on about type 1 diabetes which people think, you just got it. There's nothing you can do about it. And also Alzheimer's, you just get old and you just get it. There's nothing you can do. You got the tangles in your brain. You're going to get it. 

Talk a bit about can we fix this. Because most people think, "I'm a victim. I just got it. There's nothing I could do about it. I got the pill. I keep going to the doctor and gets adjusted. I feel miserable. This is just my luck in life. My family had it. My mom was like this. Too bad. Oh well." But that's not true.

Dr. Thomas: No. That's not true at all. I was just  looking for something. I can't find them quickly so I'll just skip that. No one gets Alzheimer's in their 60's or 70's. It's a decades long process, slowly killing off brain cells. Until you've killed off enough brain cells that the system doesn't work very well anymore just like your thyroid.

Dr. Dale Bredesen is at UCLA. He runs the Buck Institute at UCLA. That's the Alzheimer's Research Center. He published a paper in November of 2014 showing complete reversal of Alzheimer's in 9 out of 10 people within 5 years at UCLA. They reversed it within 5 years. How did he do it? There's a 34-point checklist. "They have this. They have this. Do they have this? Do they have this?" Top of the list, wheat sensitivity. Next, dairy sensitivity. Because AA, B, C, D is so very common with the brain when you have a sensitivity to wheat.

When I give my lectures to doctors, there's 200 doctors in the room how many know we're suspecting of a sensitivity to wheat? Let me see a show of hands? And I say, "Hold your hands high for a minute please," and they do. I say, "Look around the room," and it's about 80% of the room. Then I'll say, "How many of you know or suspect if you have an inadvertent exposure to wheat it seems to affect your brain? Let me see your hands again? Come on, hold them up." And about 50%-60% of those people raise their hand again. And I said look around the room.

This is a talk to doctors, health care practitioners. This is not a celiac group. This is your practice doctors. This is how often it's in your practice. "How many of you are finding it this often?" And maybe there'll be one person that raises her hand. In other words in clinical practice six to seven out of ten people will test positive if you do the right test, looking for a sensitivity to wheat. And of that number the most common system affected for molecular mimicry AA, B, C, D is the brain. Most common for most people it affects the brain.

You've got Arnold firing at your brain causing inflammation in the brain, that's pulling on the chain. And eventually one day you say, "I'm getting old. I don't remember the way I used to. Haha..." "Really? How old are you?" "I'm 38." No, that's not supposed to happen. No, that's not normal, you're getting older. No, it's a brain that's on fire. You've got inflammation in your brain. Why? I don't know why. Let's find out. 

But you're on the autoimmune spectrum, and that's what this book is about. The Autoimmune Fix just came out two weeks ago. What it's about is to understand this big picture concept. Everybody wants a cure. May I be gentle and say this to your listeners. Wake up. There's no such thing as a cure. There's no magic pill that fixes your diabetes. Wake up. A cure means you don't have the symptoms anymore. You have no markers of the symptoms like blood test or urine test, and you can do whatever you want.

Remission means you don't have the symptoms anymore. There is no markers of the symptoms, urine or blood test. And as long as you live the lifestyle that got you feeling better you're going to stay healthy. There's no cure. You want to read about a cure for diabetes? Go to YouTube and type in Type 2 diabetes and raw food diets. And you'll see the videos of African-American post-menopausal women which is a very high-risk group for diabetes, you'll see a video of them. They go on a raw food diet for 30 days and you see the doctors talk about their blood tests, and this is unbelievable, their diabetes is completely gone. Their cholesterol's come down 85 points. I'm taking them off their cholesterol medication. You see the doctors saying this.

The most potent thing you can do for your health is what's at the end of your fork. That's it. It's like, wake up people, wake up. And the reason I'm so direct about this is because for the first time in the history of human species, for the very first time the New England Journal of Medicine tells us today that children born today are going to get sick at an earlier age than their parents. They're going to get diagnosed with diseases at an earlier age than their parents, and they're going to die at an earlier age than when their parent's died. 

For the first time in the history of the human species. This has never happened before. We're going down. Now, the statistics are very clear, our health care system is one of the worst. The U.S. is ranked second from the bottom in quality of health care at the World Health Organization, yet we spend more for health than anywhere else on the planet. It's in pharma's big interest to keep us dumbed down and not understanding any of this. 

That's why I spent a year with Betrayal, The Autoimmune Disease Solution They're Not Telling You. When you guys wake up to this common sense stuff that's in here and that's in Betrayal you're just going to start asking different questions. And when you ask different questions your doctors are being demanded upon to get more answers. Because the things that I write about in this book just make common sense. 

Stop throwing gasoline on the fire. Everybody knows that diseases are inflammatory. Alright, stop throwing gasoline on the fire. "How do I do that?" Well, you have to learn. And so it's going to take a while to learn. There's no cure that you take this pill and you're fine. There's no cure. There is remission. And you can have a wonderfully vibrant, dynamic life you can. But we have to learn how to ask the right kind of questions.

Dr. Veronica: You mentioned Betrayal, I think so many people feel betrayed by the health care system, betrayed by their doctors, betrayed by the government, society, just betrayed by everything. We talk about Betrayal and we're going to talk about how people can get access to Betrayal and learn.

Dr. Thomas: I've traveled the world, literally. For the last few I put 165,000 air miles now in this last year. Lisbon, Barcelona, Leipzig, Germany, three times in London, Dublin, Sao Paolo, all over the world, interviewing world experts, the godfathers and godmothers of autoimmunity. And they know all of this and it's shocking when you hear them talk about it. They've know about this for years these kinds of concepts, but no one's carrying the message out and putting it together.

We put it all together. It's a seven-part series online, everything's free. It's about an hour a day for seven days. And you can register for it here with your website, so people can click on it and register and they can watch Betrayal. They're going to hear from the experts. 

You're going to hear from Dr. Marta Vives Pi in Barcelona, Spain who is reversing type 1 diabetes with diet and nutrition, regenerating beta cells of the pancreas. So your body starts making insulin again. What we've been told it's impossible. No, it's not. Read her papers. Here's the evidence. It works. It's simple. It's not a drug, and it works. 

You're going to read Prof. Yehuda Shoenfeld, the godfather of predictive autoimmunity. His book is there on the shelf, Vaccines and Autoimmunity. It just came out. Dr. Shoenfeld, to get a sense of who this guy is, 28 of the PhD students who got their PhD's under him, many more than that, but 28 of them share departments of immunology in med schools and hospitals around the world. This is the godfather. I interviewed him three times.

And you hear him say, "Dr. O'Bryan, I am very much in favor of vaccinations. They have saved millions of lives. However, if the person carries the gene HLA-DRB1, and 30% of the population does, they are very sensitive to having an acute reaction to the adjuvants in vaccine. Thus, it is of wisdom to perhaps be cautious in administering the vaccines. Perhaps a smaller time scale of administration, not seven in one day, not three in one day to these infants that have a weakened, not developed immune system yet. So you give one and you wait two weeks. You give another one. 

Sean tells all four vaccinations but he's saying for these patients that are HLA-DRB1 you got to wake up. You can't throw this toxic poison in them because their bodies can't handle it that well. Other bodies may be able to handle it okay. So it's not saying don't vaccinate, he's just saying vaccinate with caution if they have that weak link in their chain. That's the kind of stuff you're going to hear from these experts. It's just such useful information and it saves lives. It's going to save thousands and thousands of lives. I want everyone to watch this. It's all free. Because if you watch it you're going to ask different questions of your doctor.

Dr. Veronica: I just got to share because we're just meeting for the first time a little bit before the podcast of how I personally felt betrayed by my medical education. I also felt betrayed in my health care. I realized that I was sensitive to certain things because my sons, one got depressed and one got bipolar, and we figured out that they were sensitive to wheat and soy. One had thyroid symptoms major.

Dr. Thomas: AA, B, C, D.

Dr. Veronica: The doctor came to me who was my [Unintelligible 00:38:56] Dr. Veronica who's a chiropractic at... "Come here mom. Let me test you." And then what do you know, I'm sensitive. I'm not eating tons of these food so I would get six sometimes and say, "What's going on. I don't even know what happened?" And all of a sudden it answered questions for me.

And the other thing that I will say is as an African-American I used to feel, "That's a white people disease." And I realized it's not a white people disease. And probably everybody in my family is suffering from these things and oh my god we better wake up. My mother and my father has diabetes. I'm an eye surgeon by training. My grandmother went blind from diabetes. This is this betrayal that you're talking about needs to get out there into the whole world. So when people go to my Facebook page, to my website, even if it's after the date don't think that you still can have access to it because the world needs to see this.

Dr. Thomas O'Bryan I thank you for your work, your book The Autoimmune Fix. For those of you who like to read go get the book. You need it on your shelves so you can pick it up and read it over and over again, because it takes a while to digest this.

Dr. Thomas: May I say something about the book?

Dr. Veronica: Yes. 

Dr. Thomas: Here's the thing on the book. Right now it's on Amazon for 16 bucks. Amazon is selling it at a loss because it's getting more traffic. More people are coming. And then when you're on Amazon you're likely to buy something else, so that's their philosophy. But it's 16 bucks. If I make The New York Times Best Seller list that means I get invitations. I'm now a candidate for Ellen, Oz, Bill Maher, all these shows where I can carry this message out even further.

For 16 bucks I promise if you're not happy I'll give you a refund. You just send me a note and I'll give you a refund. I'm very proud of it. It's 30 years of work. But help me carry this message out. Help me if you would by getting the book. There's no profit in this. You make a couple of bucks a book. This is not for that. This is really to carry the message out to wake the world up because our kids are dying younger than their parents, and that's what this is about. So help me and watch Betrayal. Tell your friends about Betrayal. Help us carry the message out there so we can reach a million people with this.

Dr. Veronica: Yay, and I'm going to help you reach those million people with the followers of Dr. Veronica and all my posting on social media. Dr. O'Bryan, again, with much gratitude for your work and your time, those 165,000 miles to get Betrayal put together so we all could figure out what we need to do to heal ourselves. Thank you so much.

Dr. Thomas: Thank you.
