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
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.

Business building discussion and tips from Reed
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.

For those out of the running jargon loop, an F.K.T. is the acronym for a “fastest known time” event. Generally orchestrated by a few brace souls who develop an event never run before to establish a record. Running a trail race that has never been attempted comes with a great deal of risk. Getting lost, being in inaccessible terrain for extended periods is very dangerous and not for the meek. Join us as we invite Charlie Engle back to share the exploits of his and Nickademus Hollon’s attempt at the Sea to Sea Ultra F.K.T. project, an Ultra trail running event of over 140 miles of unforgiving terrain.www.naturalrunningnetwork.com
Child support orders and the talk of it causes an argument between men and women who don't even have children with each other, find themselves arguing.
Men think that child support shouldn't go toward rent and utilities. It should only go for what a child needs. What does a child need?
Questions for the women? Why did you go get child support on that man if he was taking care of his child? Fellas, why didn't you set up an arrangement to avoid the derangement?
What is child support, REALLY for? Is it just for, clothes, shoes and toys? Should women be required to show in detail what they do with the money?
