Get to the Root Cause of your Headaches | Podcast #246

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: And we are live. It’s Dr. J here in the house. I’m hitting record. Give me one sec and we are live. It’s Dr. J here in the house really excited
for today’s podcast. We’re gonna be chatting about headaches
and natural solutions to get to the root cause of why you may have a headache. We’ll talk about different kinds of headaches–
from allergies to migraines to cluster headaches and we’ll go from even from die off from
killing gut gut bacterial infection so we’ll go over the gamut. Evan how we doing today man. Evan Brand: I’m doing wonderful. Let’s begin this thing talking about the
conventional solutions usually we do that later in the podcast. But let’s go straight to the crap, the stuff
that unfortunately works but we don’t want to depend on like your ibuprofen is the brand
name ibuprofen is it. Is that aspirin or is that Naproxen? I need to look that up. Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Ibuprofen is basically
going to be your typical end said right. That’s ibuprofen it’s also a Meloxicam
I think as well. And then you’re gonna have like your Advil
and then you’re going to have like your aspirin. Those are your big two or three right there
there’s some different kinds I think Advil is the same as ibuprofen, Tylenol is going
to be I think you’re acetaminophen. I’ll look those all up and I’ll get the
all the typical common anti inflammatory is for headaches. We’ll dive in a little bit more specific
on the on the medication side. We’ll go over the natural support side as
well. On what’s typically used and we’ll go
over all the root cause so in general we have a couple different headaches right. We’re going to have a tension headache which
is a primarily happened with just stress and pain. A lot of these muscles here in the shoulder
in the neck get tight and that can really cause trigger points and create headaches
that are more musculoskeletal and soft tissue base. OK we’re going to have cluster headaches
where you’re going to be really really severe you’re going to feel it behind the eyes. They’re going to be very very piercing pain
and there’s different reasons for why those may happen. We’re going to have potential sinus headaches
this can be from antigens or foreign allergenic material if you’re in Austin it could be
Cedar etc. and this could get into the sinuses create inflammation and there’s different
things that we do to it to decrease inflammation to decrease histamine and also flush a lot
of this stuff out. And then we also have headaches that are more
migraines based where we kind of have like an aura that open book kind of feeling we
may be nauseous blurry vision and these could be hormone based. They could be blood sugar based as well and
then we could also have different types of mixed headaches as well. So that kind of gives you a general idea of
the different types of headaches and also know seeing patients in our clinic that we
deal with mold detox or dealing with gut bacterial detoxification or gluten exposure we can see
a lot of headaches from these aspects too as when we get rid of toxic debris a side
effect could be headaches and we see that from time to time in the office too. Evan Brand: Yes. So the prescription I was thinking of in my
head it was actually a combo like Excedrin it’s a combo of acetaminophen and aspirin
and caffeine. And that was the one where I’ve had many
many people just dependent on the Excedrin. You know though even go for extra strength
reliever for further headaches. I had one lady I remember I was actually when
I was still working at the chiropractors office this lady said she had migraines headaches
almost daily for 20 years she was pretty much debilitated by it and we were just getting
into the very early stages of nutrition with her just getting her off gluten and dairy
and that’s all we did and her headaches went away. I got anything after going to magnesium officially
on all these supplements I thought we were going to do all we did to get rid of gluten
and dairy and the headaches went away. She was like Oh my God I wish somebody would
have told me it was this easy 20 years ago. Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Exactly right. Totally. So just to kind of give people a bunch of
the different families of medications we have our acetaminophen medication which are primarily
going to be like our Tylenol for instance and that’s going to be the acetaminophen
then we have the solicit acid will be more of like your aspirin your baby aspirin that’s
going to be white willow bark type of extract and then we have our various and says that
are going to be ibuprofen Maloxica type of of medications that are more on the Cox 1
Cox 2 type of pathways that kind of gives you a pretty good idea. There are some medications that are more prescription
based. All right. But those are the big ones that you’re going
to see mostly over-the-counter Advil kind of falls into the same category as ibuprofen
and then like you mentioned the other ones that are kind of combined with the caffeine
that are going to be more of your migraines pain relievers typically they add the caffeine
in there partly because migraines for instance part of the mechanism is Vasodilation and
caffeine actually does create some vasoconstriction. And so you would think that more headaches
are caused by vasoconstriction and that caffeine or stimulate would make it worse for most
of the time it’s days of dilation and the caffeine actually does a little bit more constriction
and does help with the headaches. Evan Brand: Yes the drug that you’re talking
about the prescription people end up on is called Topamax. It’s like an anti seizure medication but
a lot of people end up using that for migraines as well and that’s what this lady this whole
20 years of migraines that’s what she was on I remember it like yesterday. She’s been on it and it helped her but she
had a lot of side effects from memory issues and– Dr. Justin Marchegiani: You’ll see whether
or naproxen as well. Kind of similar things you’ll see you’ll
see it with those as well some of the pain relievers that kind of have the ibuprofen
slash caffeine kind of combo in there for sure and some of these medications work but
they may not get to the root cause we really want to make sure we get to the actual root
cause of why these medications are needed in some people they may need it every now
and then as a quick kind of stopgap but if we can get to the root cause number one we’re
going to need less of those medications because we know for instance ibuprofen does kill people
20,000 people a year on the low side. So we know it’s not going to be the best
medication to use long term if it’s a short thing here or they are fine. So what we want it to be a kind of a last
ditch stopgap measure not something that we’re using daily. And then number two you know other things
like for instance Tylenol for instance you know it notoriously decreases glutathione
as well where ibuprofen didn’t really decrease gut function and liver function to Tylenol
will hit the liver as well. So a lot of these things really do play good
at iron. So then if you’re getting exposed to mold,
toxins or you just need your body’s detoxification systems to be upregulated to deal with whatever
stress is in your environment. It’s gonna be harder to detoxify your body
and get rid of these toxins. Evan Brand: Yeah I remember when my daughter
Summer she had a concussion and she you could tell I mean she wasn’t to the point where
she was talking as good as she is now at age 3 but she you could tell right headache she
wasn’t feeling well. So we talked to the pediatrician we go well
what do we do. You know we don’t we don’t want to just
depend on topical magnesium etc. Maybe she needs something a little stronger. And she said well go for ibuprofen because
you really don’t want to take that hit. It’s like a 30 plus percent hit of decreased
in glutathione with the acetaminophen. So she said you really have to choose your
battles when it comes to pain relievers and Ibuprofen is generally the better choice over
the acetaminophen. Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Exactly yeah. And then also there are other ibuprofen or
other let’s say I like Imitrex and there’s also other migraine medications that are SNRI
medication that are selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors as there’s a lot of
let’s just say data that dopamine and serotonin can play a big role with migraines so I’ll
see a lot of people that have migraines that have issues with their serotonin doped me
and we’ll work on supporting some of the building blocks of amino acids to boost up
some of these precursor nutrients to make serotonin and dopamine in their brain. That’s a big one. Also stress depletes a lot of these things. So we want to fix the underlying stress that
may be causing a lot of the neurotransmitter depletion. Then we’ll work out supporting some of these
nutrients along with B6 as well and that can play a huge huge role. We’ll also do extra magnesium along with
that because magnesium really helps with brain inflammation. Any of the micro glial cells that have an
unregulated due to brain inflammation magnesium can really help relax them B6 is also very
important too and we may also do herbs like feverfew and ginger which can really help
attenuate and relax a lot of brain inflammation decrease headaches for sure. Evan Brand: Good call in the amino acids. So in terms of a testing standpoint looking
at inorganic acids of someone who has headaches can be very fruitful because you may see the
B6 deficiency you’ve talked about. We may see low serotonin like you’ve talked
about issues with dopamine and endorphin balance. We’ll look at vitamin C as in Charlie you’ve
got B12 on there as well so there’s a ton of data that you can get that way you’re
not just guessing and checking. We think it would be fine to just go and take
some extra magnesium but if you don’t get better from that it could be an amino acid
brain chemistry based problem or in my case it could be gut related. You know I had gut infections and I had headaches
all the time and once I got rid of my gut bugs I think partly due to the liver stress
that the gut bugs created I had headaches and once I got those taking care of supported
deliver headaches were gone. Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Yep 100 percent. So there’s different medications that are
out there there’s different nutrients that are out there. One of the big mechanisms that I see that
are going to drive headaches is going to be gluten. All right gluten and grains there are some
mechanisms out there that they can decrease blood flow to the brain. And if we’re decreasing blood flow to the
brain we’re not going to have good oxygenation we’re not going to be able to carry nutrition
and our frontal cortex and our brain needs oxygen to work. So it’s possible that decrease constriction
or should they increase constriction which will cause decreased blood flow to the brain
can really drive up pain in the brain and isn’t to make it harder to get rid of the
inflammation and have healthy cognitive function. So getting the gluten and grains under control
isn’t the big that’s an all out better perfusion or blood flow up the garden hoses
on the side of your neck called the carotid arteries. That’s very important. Evan Brand: Yep. Great call. How about we talk about maybe beet powder. I mean you you hit on this issue with blood
flow. I wonder if you throw in some beet powder. I take it all the time so it’s not like
I wait until I have a headache and then do beet powder but I wonder if beet powder could
be a good solution if you had an acute headache and then you take some I guess I could experiment. Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Yeah well there’s
nitric oxide that can be increased from the beetroot which could definitely help with
vatal dilation so there’s different data out there like migraines are supposedly caused
by like I mentioned more days of dilation. Therefore some of the medications that have
caffeine that cause more constriction can help with migraines and there are some headaches
that like stress headaches they may already be more of a slow constriction there and some
of these things may actually make it worse. So like I mentioned earlier that’s more
for migraines with the vatal dilation but other more tension headaches. Could there it could be actually more constriction
so that’s why magnesium things that help relax the body can be helpful. Soft tissue work especially in the area of
like the skeletons or like the elevator scapula all these muscles in the back they all connect
in the Oxo port area in the back of the neck the ligaments and nuke and just that that
Nucor ridge in the back of your neck all those muscles attach there. So if it’s really tight you could really
create a lot of tension and getting good cranial cycle adjustments could be helpful getting
your C1 and C2 adjusted in the neck getting making sure your spine is moving well making
sure postural things are good because the more your posture goes forward these muscles
get really tight here. Is to create lots of stress down your temporals
and your master part of your head which can then create trigger points and those trigger
points can refer and create headache like pain in the referral process. Evan Brand: People that are listening and
don’t see the video. What he was doing. He turned to the side and he was doing this
kind of turtle head forward. Like most of us do when we’re sitting on
a computer on our smartphone. We’re kind of turtle head sticking out and
you see the whole posture change just kind of falls apart. So you didn’t directly say it but you basically
said hey go to a local chiropractor for headaches that can be very helpful too to get adjusted. I’ve had several different adjustments that
have helped me with headaches. Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Yeah. Anything that’s posture related and or soft
tissue related a good chiropractor up a cervical chiropractor or someone that does active release
technique or a good massage mile Fascia release therapist or trigger point therapist can be
really helpful on the structural side. Then we just kind of have the the more let’s
say chemical based type of headache that could be from M.S.G or aspartame. It could be from mold exposure. It could be from breathing in a whole bunch
of benzene exhaust products from petroleum byproducts. It could be from abnormal levels of estrogen
and your cycle or a premature drop in progesterone. This is for female hormone female patients
now so hormone imbalances can can really dry out especially if your estrogen is kind of
up and down and there’s estrogen dominance that can really drive a lot of headaches too. And then of course we have nutrient efficiencies
like magnesium and B6 and some of the serotonin and dopamine based amino acids like five HTP
and Tyrosine and B6 can be really important for headaches too. And then of course anytime we have inflammation
in the gut inflammation in the gut can create whatever inflammation we’re. Evan Brand: Definitely in the brain. Dr. Justin Marchegiani: And the brain. Yeah and that’s part of the reason why I
think Ginger helps or curcumin helps serve as various relief and help anything they can
pour CBD oil can help anything that can really help drive down inflammation really makes
a big difference the difference is some of the over counter over-the-counter medication
like your Tylenol or your Advil or your acetaminophen or your solicit gas and like aspirin some
of these things have side effects that you have to weigh out the side effects and it’s
always better doing something more natural even if it’s not getting to the root cause
because at least it’s not going to have side effects that will increase your chance
of dying in the future or decreasing your body’s ability to make load of iron which
is your master antioxidant and help a detoxification. Evan Brand: Yeah. So let’s just paint a picture of how you
could go down that rabbit hole robotic as you mentioned toxin exposure like car exhaust
mold exposure you’ve got all these toxins. So then you take acetaminophen for your headache
you deplete your body’s ability to detox the chemicals that cause the headache in the
first place. You see how you can get stuck in this loop
because now you’re just trying to manage the headache you’re further depleting yourself
depleting yourself becoming more toxic and more toxic. Getting rid of the hormone you need the antioxidant
you need to detox it gets nasty. So in some cases extra glutathione could cause
headaches too. If you move out too many toxins I know when
I took a double dose of glutathione I remember I called you one night it was like 10 o’clock. I’m like dude I messed up. You like what you do. Like I took a double dose of glutathione my
head is killing me. And so eventually it settled down after a
few hours so you got to you’ve got to have somebody helping you with this because you
could just take magnesium and maybe it goes away but if you’re having a recurring problem
like this there’s probably a root cause that hasn’t been addressed. So getting the testing done like the organic
acids getting a stool test done to look for these gut infections like you mentioned SIBO
can’t eat or overgrowth parasites all these bad guys are going to release toxins into
the bloodstream to make you feel bad so that they can still feed on your food and then
when you try to kill them they may release more toxins and create this die off. And that is designed to make you feel worse. So you stop using the herbs that are gonna
fix the problem but so it’s always a matter of balancing killing versus supporting deliver
the lymphatic the adrenal. It’s kind of this seesaw balance that we’re
always trying to work on with people. Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Exactly and let’s
kind of review the medications one more time the conventional ones are gonna be your Tylenol
which is your acetaminophen and that’s going to have big glutathione decrease with it then
you’re going to have your more ibuprofen. This could be like the Meloxicam or Motrin
or Advil and these are worked very well. But you know long term they’re going to
have negative impacts on the gut alterations in your liver. And then we have Aleve and the proxen which
are kind of very similar to ibuprofen and these could help with migraines to again similar
side effects. And then we have your your bufferin or ascriptin
which are essentially very similar to aspirin. And then we have your more migraines ones
which are the aspirin acetaminophen and caffeine combined. So it’s kind of like your tylenol with your
aspirin in caffeine and that’s like you’re Excedrin and that’s going to induce the
vasoconstriction that we talked about because a lot of migraines are driven by these are
violations of the caffeine added. So it’s basically a Tylenol and aspirin
and caffeine to create the constriction which will help with the migraines which are typically
associated with these vasodilation the brain opening up. Evan Brand: Yeah. Let’s go back to diet real quick. We’ve talked about gluten we talked about
dairy being an issue. I think we should also mention nice shades
just as a whole. Tomatoes peppers potatoes those can sometimes
be issues with headaches high histamine foods can be issues as well. So like fermented foods in some cases can
be a problem. Kombucha can be a problem for some people. Avocado. You know I love avocado I did one every day
for a long time and then I started to get migraine headaches from it. I stopped the avocados for about three to
six weeks. I added them back in. No more headaches. So I think it’s important to look at a high
histamine food list like coconut Amino so. Very good option as opposed to soy sauce but
super high and histamine. So you may need to try a low histamine plan
for a little bit to see if that can Congress symptoms down way of working backwards. Dr. Justin Marchegiani: 100 percent. Also alcohol can be a big one. So anytime you drink alcohol you’re going
to inhibit ADH. ADH is your anti pee hormone. So when you have when you have anti pee hormone
that means you’re going to pee more. Right. And you have less of your Anti pee you’re
going to pee more so then you lose a lot of your minerals. And that’s why I’d recommend always having
one glass of alcohol to one glass of a Topo Chico or a Pellegrino to get the minerals
in there and you can always add some minerals into your water like a Redman’s Real Salt. Those are excellent ways to get the minerals
and because minerals are part of how your nervous system works and if you’re sodium
potassium pumps aren’t working adequately and then your cells aren’t going to be able
to communicate and have adequate action potential to work neurologically. So sodium potassium magnesium chloride very
important minerals and they will get more depleted with alcohol. Evan Brand: So I’ve got some electrolytes
in my mason jar here. That’s what I was drinking since I went
out this morning in the sunshine and I started to have a headache come on maybe my electrolytes
are imbalanced. So it’s not going to hurt to play with this
and hopefully that will help me to replenish myself. Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Yeah, with you being
on the boat and being really hot it just probably some mineral issues. Your body’s probably just sweating a little
bit and you’re losing a lot of those minerals and you probably just needed to bring on board
some extra water with with extra minerals on there. So it’s good that you’re on top of that
question came in right now what’s the best way to cure your headaches. Should you do something like Gatorade. Here’s the deal guys what you see right
now with Gatorade over the counter is just a commercial version of how it actually came
to be. I think it was the 1969 or 1970 see their
Orange Bowl or Rose Bowl. Right. College football championship. And I think it was the Florida Gators. This is how we got the name Gatorade. I think it was someone in their science department
created this electrolyte formula and it honest to god tasted like rat piss. It was really bad it was actually called Gator
lights gator lights not Gatorade. And then I think Pepsi or Coke bought it then
20 30 years later made a marketable drink out of it. That is nothing like the original formula. But basically it was just loaded in a hope
we had it loaded in electrolytes and they weren’t that nice tasting they added them
to the water and then neurologically and muscular wise they could just perform way better because
in that kind of heat you’re just losing so many electrolytes and they had a huge advantage. So what you’re seeing now has lots of excess
fructose lots of excess food coloring and dyes and more than likely a lot of GMO corn
as well. So you’re much better off just getting those
minerals in your body by itself. There are different formulas that are out
there that we both use. I mean you can do a Redmond’s real Salt’s
great trace mineral formulas makes a couple one called Endura one called forty thousand
volts. That works could we use another product called
potassium HP and then obviously I’ll use nuke salt and Redman’s real salt and we’ll
work these in as well. These are great first steps and then also
making sure we’re getting enough potassium on top of that avocados to be your best source. If you don’t the histamine issue we can
also do a lot of green vegetables. We could do sweet potato squash etc.. Evan Brand: Yeah the potassium huge I think
I probably still don’t get enough. I try really hard. But you said the RDF potassium is what like
close to four grams around four grams for. Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Forty five hundred
forty seven hundred milligrams today. So it’s hard to get enough. You need one full avocado six servings of
vegetables and maybe one piece of squash or sweet potato when you’re close to it. Right. Cause you at about five to seven hundred milligrams
a serving of each of those of you doing six times five for vegetables around 3000 an avocado
you’re at 1000 if it’s a good size one maybe a sweet potato squash around forty seven
hundred. So that kind of gives you a good step in the
right direction and then if we need we just would add in some new store that would add
in some of these trace mineral support formulas that we use. Evan Brand: Well you want to talk about essential
oils for a minute. I have essential oils on hand. I put them in the diffuser. I’ll put them on topically. I’ll mix them into epsom salt and put that
into a mineral bath. Lavender is my favorite. So what we did is we just got fraction a coconut
oil mixed it with some lavender and put it into a little roll on. So we’ll just keep it in the backpack with
the kids. So if something happens to them or something
happens to us could just be anxiety. Rub it on the insides of the wrist or if it’s
a headache you know you could just rub that roll on the temples or on the back of the
skull. It’s a Band-Aid but it’s a pretty darn
good one. Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Absolutely. I mean with headaches I mean essential oils
we can do peppermint really anti inflammatory can do Rosemary which is very high in vitamin
E we can do a lavender which really helps relax the muscles. We can do eucalyptus or chamomile and a lot
of teas before beds so we can easily do that. There’s some good blends out there by essential
oil companies. But you know just kind of one off thing. That’s kind of how you can do it and you
can delude it in a carry oil or MCT or a little bit of coconut oil you can rub it on your
on your temples or on the back of your neck wherever it feels tight and that can really
help relax the muscles and help relax your nervous system too. Evan Brand: Yeah something to have on hand. You know we always keep like a bottle of adaptations
a bottle of some sort of essential oil and a bottle of enzymes enzymes that I say enzymes
first enzymes essential oils can adaptogens. Those are the three things that we carry and
travel with no matter where we go. Dr. Justin Marchegiani: One hundred percent. I love it. Very good. I think we’re hitting some really good aspects
and then also a lot of patients that see us we’re maybe in the middle of a detoxification
protocol or we may be doing some killing gut issues or see bar bacteria sometimes headaches
can happen from that and if that happens it means you’re going to fast slow it down
a little bit. We may also add in some binders so we can
taper things up a little bit better. You may also add in things like glutathione
and or ginger tea to help one with you know the effectiveness of the killing what to to
help with the limb and three to help provide extra anti inflammatory support as well. Evan Brand: How about heavy metals we didn’t
talk about that but we should mention that heavy metals could be a cause or source of
mercury lead cadmium arsenic. We’ve done many things with binders and
chlorella and other things to move metals out but mercury can be a big trigger of blood
pressure problems headaches ears ringing et cetera. So you may need to investigate heavy metals
and then EMF You know it’s not super common that we have someone that says hey I’m actually
sensitive to EMF but I had a woman in London who she found out that her Wi-Fi router was
causing her headaches. And how do we know. Well because when she turned off the router
at night the headache would go away. And so I said well let’s just try putting
hardwired in and get rid of that Wi-Fi completely and the headaches were gone. So she had mold in a bunch of other issues
as well. But I think the EMF for someone who’s already
compromised could be enough of a trigger to cause headaches. Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Yeah possibly could
be. I mean I have to jump to that extreme ongoing
hardware I just put your put your wireless your Wi-Fi on a Christmas tree timer. So it goes off maybe around 11 or 12 whenever
your bedtime is and then it goes on maybe when you get up or a little bit later that
way you kind of have your whole entire night without any EMF gone. That could be a good option to me. Evan Brand: When my wife first got pregnant
with our first daughter we did the timer thing with the Wi-Fi. Then I started sleeping better and I thought
well if I’m working from home during the day what am I missing out on or what am I
sacrificing in terms of like focus and clarity. I didn’t really need Wi-Fi which is convenient. So we just went all hardwired and and I don’t
miss it now that it’s gone. Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Yeah I mean it just
depends on how sensitive you are with today’s day and age. I mean you can go to your Wi-Fi network especially
if you live in a big area you’re going gonna have Wi-Fi and 5G and 4G everywhere. So I don’t know how much you can get away
with it now but the key thing is the healthier you are the more nutritionally fed and rested
and you take care of your body the better chance you have to adapt to it. So the people that are more sensitive you
know do your best to limit your exposure. But in the end, right now it’s really impossible
to get away from it just make sure you’re not living next to a cell phone tower or one
of these new 5G towers is to do your best and keep all your antioxidant reserves and
you’re good at glutathione and your nutrition up as best as possible. Evan Brand: Yeah and there are canopies too. You know there are silver canopies you could
sleep in there’s like some sleeping bags on the market bed canopies that look like
a mosquito net that can protect you if you’re into super urban area. Luckily my my closest neighbor and they probably
use Wi-Fi but it’s maybe like five or six hundred yards away. Dr. Justin Marchegiani: So I haven’t thought
about how sensitive you are. Right. Most people I find they aren’t that sensitive
or if they are once they fix their diet and they fix their gut they become less sensitive
to it. Very rare that I find let’s say EMF is the
root issue. Yeah it’s usually one of those things lower
on the list that becomes bigger when everything else is an address. But when the top things are addressed then
it becomes less of an issue. Evan Brand: Yeah totally. So that lady once we got her on some binders
and detox mode the sensitivity went away she said she was able to go back into town and
go to the grocery store where they have Wi-Fi blasting. And she did not get headaches. Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Yeah yeah that’s
good. Most important is you know these try to control
it when you sleep. That’s a pretty good way to do it. And then next is just do all the nutritional
things and mentioned earlier we talked about heavy metals and headaches. The biggest thing with headaches and heavy
metals is get your gut work and don’t come in and go after heavy metals until you know
your guts working. Work with a good functional medicine doctor
tend to do things to help bind it up and to give you nutrition help support phase 1 and
Phase 2 maybe give you some extra glued iron support as well just to make sure that we’re
collating things in a very slow methodical way and the guts working well is we’re not
reabsorbed a whole bunch of toxins deliberate. Evan Brand: And if you’re someone who went
and got your Mercury amalgam fillings removed by a conventional dentist assume you have
mercury poisoning and you need to get that taken care of. If you did not go to a dentist who does the
smart protocol to safely remove the amalgam that’s silver quote which is 50 percent
or more mercury got drilled out and you breathed in the vapor and it’s in your brain and
it is in your bones. It’s everywhere. So it takes a while to get it out so zeal
light other binders can be used. We had some lady like send us an email like
oh my god you said zeal I don’t you know zeal light increases aluminum in the body. No it doesn’t. That’s not true. There’s plenty of data on companies using
professional zeal like clinically we’re testing and retesting aluminum levels and
they only go down not up. So natural binders are very very helpful for. Dr. Justin Marchegiani: I haven’t seen zeal
like go up having tested this I have not seen aluminum go up with Zola. But again you know it all depends on the quality. This probably cheap zeal like you can get
from China that may have aluminum in it. Right. So just try to make sure you have good stuff. And also we would never just gives the lie
by itself abysmal lighting and some other things as well and we’d be supporting glutathione
and we never would just go all in on one thing. Evan Brand: Yep exactly. Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Great. Anything else you want to dial in or kind
of reassess today? Evan Brand: I would just tell people to get
some information get some data. If we always say if you don’t test you’ve
guessed. So could you take magnesium and lavender and
feverfew and B6 and trip the fan. Yeah you could but do you know what you’re
doing do you know what you’re going after what’s your goal what are you what are the
puzzle pieces get the puzzle pieces you’re going to save money and you’re going to
save time by getting the data upfront and if you want to reach out. Justin I work with people around the world
we can help you get some of these functional medicine tests done on yourself so we can
get to the root cause. So Justin’s website is My website is We love helping people we’re grateful to
be in the position we are to help change lives. So please share the podcast. Send it to somebody you know I guarantee somebody
you know has headaches and they could benefit from this podcast more than the new advertisement
on the nightly news that says hey here’s this new medication for headaches this is
better content than that advertised. Dr. Justin Marchegiani: One hundred percent
that we’re really working on the root cause. Hope everyone enjoys it. And if you do put your comments down below
what have you all done to help improve your headaches or improve anything related to your
neurological health. I’m just curious to know what supplements
