    Intro: Reed discussing the FDN philosophy/paradigm and what sets us apart from other


    traditional methods.


    4:30 Talk about upcomoing new FDN material and video tutorials

    Brandon announces graduates


    15:00 – Question: How do you go about weaning off PPI’s with supplements to increase stomach acid? 


    (already ruled out Hpylori). 


    Reed: Reed discusses weaning clients off of PPIs and why stomach acid is so important to our health and 


    vitality. 


    29:00 – Live Question: Can Reed speak to hyper-parathyroidism 


    Reed: discusses parathyroid function and its role on calcium in the blood/bones.  Speaks to how the 


    process of FDN reduces metabolic chaos regardless of the  client’s “diagnosis”. 


    47:30 – Question: I have a client with a total cortisol of 9.5 for the whole day. I mentioned that he might want to 


    get tested for Addison’s since that was what the FDN program suggests. He doesn’t seem to have the other typical symptoms of Addison’s other than the low cortisol. Reed shares that he has seen Addison’s maybe twice in the last 15 years – it is very rare. 


    54:30 – Question from caller. How does the cyclical drop of progesterone before menses set off the 


    inflammatory cascade that triggers migraines.  


    Reed: Does it matter? The solution is to balance the contributors to MC and work non-specifically w/ FDN protocols.

    CHILD SUPPORT

    in Entertainment

    Let’s say that there is a mother who has a child by a man but they split. The woman has 1 more kid by another man and she splits with him as well. The first man pays his child support and more but the second man is a deadbeat. So the woman starts using the first father’s support check to cover her other child. So when the first father finds out that his child support is not all going to his child; would he be wrong to confront the mother and would the mother be wrong to defend her actions.
