Client Raymond Elias joins Becky to discuss her work with his daughter, who suffers from a rare and difficult condition known as cyclical vomiting syndrome.
Similar to migraine at its "roots," Becky will present her basic approach for migrainous syndromes, including migraine headache, abdominal migraine, and ocular migraine.
Raymond is a guided hypnotherapy specialist, and they will also be discussing how this fascinating therapy "works" and its amazing effects on mental and physical health.
"Some research indicates that the dysfunction in the body’s response to stress may contribute or trigger episodes of cyclic vomiting syndrome. Affected individuals may experience altered release of corticotrophin-releasing factor (CRF) from the hypothalamus, the portion of the brain that controls the production and release of certain hormones. CRF is a stress hormone that stimulates the adrenal cortex, which controls the body’s response to stress. Some research has indicated that CRF may cause vomiting."

Hi Rebecca - I'm writing to ask if you will cover this question on your Saturday radio show.
Would you please discuss foods with oxalates, in relation to osteoporosis.
I am a senior (69) trying to follow a highly nutritious diet.
Most foods have oxalates so how does one maintain a healthy diet, with that in mind - (being a vegan..)? Granted -- there are low oxalate foods & diet plans, but some of the high oxalated foods are important. Beets, and beet greens, for example. Also -- how might one juggle two healthy diets - thyroid AND osteoporosis ? I hope I've not overloaded you with questions.
The vegan diet, thyroid, and bone health. I see these things right off the bat:
VEGANS AND VEGETARIAN DIET HALLMARKS WHEN IT COMES TO THYROID AND OSTEOPOROSIS:
- Many vegetables are goitrogenic, meaning they block uptake of iodine to the thyroid
- Many vegans and vegetarians rely on soy in the daily diet - highly goitrogenic
- Vitamin D is found in animal foods only
- Many foods that are in other ways healthy are very high in oxalate content
WHAT TO DO?
If you want to continue to pursue an animal-food free diet, then you must supplement. Other supplements are needed, as well, but for our purposes:
VITAMIN D3 WITH K2 (see below)
MAGNESIUM AND POTASSIUM CITRATE (see below)
- low vitamin D levels - food sources of vitamin D are animal based - low vitamin D associated with
- 92% OF PEOPLE WITH HASHIMOTO'S THYROIDITIS ARE VITAMIN D DEFICIENT
- low vitamin D levels are, of course, associated with osteoporosis - important also to use vitamin K2
- MICHAEL'S VIT D3/K2 - take one daily
Many nutritious foods are high in oxalates.
- THORNE RESEARCH MAGNESIUM POTASSIUM CITRATE - take 1 with each meal
FOODS THAT CAUSE HYPOTHYROIDISM - with the caveat that the caution against "too much" iodine is misguided.
