30 Minute Quick Start Success Guide for “The 8 Steps to Natural Fertility”

Video Transcription

Hello! Thank you for joining me on the live broadcast today.

The topic is going to be taking our 8 Steps to Natural Fertility. As we do know, we have many hundreds of you who have downloaded the book. But as much as people have gotten good advice and benefited from the book, we’ve also gotten a lot of comments that a book is not something that a lot of people have time to sit down and read. We appreciate that. It can be more time consuming. So we thought it would be helpful to take the first tips from the top advice from the book and put it into about a 30-minute presentation. So, at least you can take your good intentions if you haven’t had time to read the book, and begin to gain the benefits from it.

So I’m going to spend about 30 minutes. (Just let me switch my screen for a second to find the right button here.) It’s going to take about 30 minutes, so we’re going to go through. And what you can do is, as we’re going through at any time (oops, let me switch my screen here), you can type your comments or your question in the comments box. I won’t see them immediately. But my plan is to go through the full 30-minute presentation and then I’ll come back around and I’ll go through your questions at that time. It’ll make a little more sense that way to group them all together. So whether you’re on Facebook, or you’re on YouTube, you can type into the comment box and that will populate into my studio at the back end here. So let’s go in through the slides.

The Organizing Idea Behind Fertility Success

The very beginning, the overview. First of all, my first point that I make here is that I just want to point out the reason why we’ve had such a high success rate with our fertility treatments. And it really comes down, more than anything, it comes down to the fundamental organizing idea that we’re using. And our whole thought process, our whole treatment structure, is based on the principles of Dynamic medicine, as opposed to most of what you’ll find in the world of fertility advice, which goes back to allopathic medicine and even a lot of the natural approaches – they default to a lot of the mechanical presumptions. So, unless you’re a car that needs to go to the mechanic, usually you’re going to do a lot better on taking dynamic health advice rather than mechanical health advice. So that’s just a big overview point or where we’re coming from, as how we’re approaching this and now we’re getting the results that we do. Or to say this in another way, to really be in possession of full fertility health is really just a subset of being healthy at all levels – as I say here, the physical health, mental, emotional, and especially (as we’ll see in some of the points I make later on), the profound importance in our health of the mind-body connection (the so called “mind-body” connection). It’s not like they’re two separate things that got connected, but they are one connected thing, which got expressed in two separate forms. So anyways, we’ll use the common phrase of the “mind-body” connection. And you’ll see what I mean a little bit later on.

And the general practical tip as to how we designed the book, how we designed these 8 steps, and you’ll see this go through today. If you haven’t yet used it, our fertility scorecard, you can get it at our website arcanum.ca/fertilityscore. And we generally recommend if you test yourself and your spouse monthly and track where that score is going, it’ll give you good feedback as to whether you’re improving on the key fertility factors or not. And more importantly, will also help you to identify exactly where those weaknesses are, and what’s the next thing you might want to focus on as far as making progress towards your fertility goals.

So let’s get into Step 1. And very intentionally, we designed the book this way to start with this as Step 1.

And that is the really foundational point of measuring your pH balance. Now that’s foreign for a lot of people. Some people have done it for other health reasons. It’s a general topic around the alkalinity of your body and how important that is for health. But it’s particularly important when it comes to fertility as it’s almost like one of the body’s master switches under times of stress or nutritional deficiencies or other things where, as I’m saying, kind of a master switch where the body may turn off the fertility function as kind of an evolutionary preservative mechanism.

But just to get ourselves a little bit grounded in the basics, to give us almost more of a technical definition of “What is the pH in the body?” The technical definition would be, pH literally stands for “potential for hydrogen ion transfer” – a very biochemical definition. But what that means to us, or what that means in the context of fertility, is depending on the overall state of the health of the body, the cellular health, the nutritional status, the mineral status and all these things, depending on what’s going on in the cellular structure, that potential for hydrogen ion transfer. What that means is, if the cells have everything that they need, the life energy is just naturally flowing through the body the way it’s supposed to. All the nutrition that’s supposed to flow into the cells and all the basic life functions really exists as a function of flow. And we know this at the psychological level when we’re feeling well, and our day is going well, we will use a word like that. We’ll say, “Oh yeah, my day flowed” or “Things went smoothly” or “Things went easily.” We know what that feeling is like psychologically, but biochemically that’s precisely what your body is aiming for as far as health.

So, the way the pH scale works, you can see in this image I have here. It’s a bottle of pH strips. And you can see all these color codings. And basically, the way you do it, you test your… Usually there’s two main ways you can test pH – either testing the saliva or testing the urine. And for our purposes with fertility, we recommend the urine testing as that it gives us a more accurate reading for what we’re looking for. So basically, what you do is first thing in the morning, you get one of these strips. And your first urination of the day, you pee on one of these strips. And after 20 or 30 seconds, it will turn a certain color and you just match that color to the chart you’ll have on your bottle. Every brand has their own chart and you just follow that. And the whole pH scale goes from 0 to 14. So the lower half, from 0-7, that indicates an acidic state of the body. And then everything above that, 7-14 is the alkaline. So when it comes to health in general, and fertility health in particular, you want to be in that really sweet spot – in the low, like 7.1-7.2, maybe up to about 7.4-7.5 range, that’s really the sweet spot of alkalinity. And what you will typically get, as I say, when you when you measure that pH first thing in the morning, you will typically get a slightly more acidic reading (because that’s all the metabolites, although you haven’t… your body’s been busy metabolizing overnight). When you first pee, it goes out in the morning, and you tend to have more of an acidic reading.

But then what you want to also do is then have a second reading, after you’ve had a chance to drink a glass of water, start to rehydrate yourself, as you start to get into your daytime metabolism. And your second reading, hopefully, typically what you will see is that will rise and that will be more in the sweet spot of what I’ve just said, the low, 7.2 to 7.4 range – somewhere in that range. That would be the optimal. Now if you’re still low, if you’re still more in the acidic range, of course, we’ll go through a lot of the further steps we’re going to get to today. But all the things we do with diet and all the other recommendations, we do have a lot to do with getting this pH back into that fertility sweet spot. So that’s a good overview. It’s pretty straightforward. Once you know how to do it, it’s not that hard.

Moving on to Step 2. The title of this chapter was called “Follow Your Taste Buds to Optimal Mineral Nutrition and Better Hormone Balance”.

So the mineral part here I just alluded to when I was talking about the pH balance. And the thing about taste buds, I wanted to kind of have a little bit of an attention grabber. It’s not a way people necessarily think about, but it’s quite amazing the way the whole human body has evolved. Our taste buds, amongst other other signals we get in our body, are very highly tuned to which foods are healthy for us, and which foods are less healthy for us.

So the whole idea of what we’re looking at in this step is what’s called “nutrient density”. And nutrient density is what it sounds like. It’s kind of the opposite. We talk about eating ’empty calories’ – somebody eats a bag of chips or a bag of cookies or whatever. You know, that’s not health food. That’s what we call empty calories. It’s not really full of nutrition, very devoid of nutrition. What we want to get in our fertility diet is the opposite. So very high density nutrition, jam-packed with nutrients. And what I’m saying here about the taste buds and that natural detection organ that we have in our mouth.

When we’re reasonably healthy and we eat a reasonably healthy diet, we get this natural feedback cycle, like when food tastes good, or when healthy food (natural food) tastes good, that’s a good sign – our taste buds get excited and we get a little pleasure (kind of boost), we like those foods. Now we have to be very careful here. If you get into a lot of the modern industrial foods, they’ve been specifically engineered to trick your tongue so that what is more empty calories, it tricks your tongue into thinking that it’s nutrient density. So you have to use your common sense and not get into the factory, industrial foods, the overproduced foods, the additives and the chemicals, and all these other things that have been designed in the lab. You don’t want that. But it’s going to fool you.

“Pleasure” by Matthias Ripp
https://flic.kr/p/24bC4o5

And this is actually the reason why a lot of weight gain happens with a lot of junk food. It’s because your tongue is getting fooled – you think you’re getting nutrient dense food, but in fact you’re not. You’re getting very, very empty calories. And your body gets confused. And it thinks it should be full, but it’s not. So it just keeps giving you the signal to “eat more, eat more, eat more” to turn off that signal for nutrient density. Meaning you’ve got enough now, but if that never comes, we never know when to stop eating when we’re in that junk food spiral. So that’s a big distinction to be careful of.

So yeah, something tastes good. If it’s a natural food, that’s good, that’s giving you the right signal you want and you will naturally get full and stop eating at the right time. Versus the more denatured foods, those you want to be very careful. A similar topic along this is where the signals of the taste buds get overridden (or give you the wrong signals) is in the case of when we get into emotional cravings – we’re eating food for emotional reasons. And the power of that, the power of those emotional cravings is overriding that the taste sensations of the tongue, those aren’t turning our hunger on or off at the right times. But those are getting overridden for emotional reasons.

So, as I say, it’s easy enough to use our our common sense to put the industrial foods out of our house and not really make those the basis of our diet. But the emotional eating can be a little bit more of an entrenched problem. And that’s one area where we can go beyond the basic common sense that we teach in the 8 steps of this book, and where we can get more into a helpful homeopathic treatment protocol. So that could be very individual, but that can be something that where we can break out that cycle. But I just include that there, because it’s playing on the same mechanisms as the high density nutrition detector that our tongue would normally be attuned to but it’s overridden for another reason. I just wanted to include that in there.

So Step 3. Now, this is actually one of the more difficult steps to condense into a very short slide. So I’ll just give you a few key points here. But I think in the near future, I’m going to come back around and just do a full presentation on this one step alone. We can fill a whole, even an hour or more just on this step.

So the key points we make in Step 3 is this is a lot of the challenge people have when they get are trying to be healthy and trying to research more, trying to learn more. They get frustrated by a lot of conflicting information – whether they’re on Google, whether they’re reading different books, different advice, different doctors, whatever. We can get advice all over the map. And that becomes a big frustration because, people, they don’t even know where to begin. “Well, this person says this, but then this person contradicts them. And I don’t know who’s right. I don’t know who to believe.” The big distinction to make for yourself is what is more on the basis of being given advice as a fad. And we see lots of fads come and go, versus what are the rock-solid principles that remain true for all time, right?

With human physiology hasn’t changed; and many, many, many thousands of years, we still have that same basic caveman physiology. Of course, we live in a very modern world now. And we have to be aware of some of the trappings of that, but our physiology hasn’t changed. The true principles of health hasn’t changed. And one of the greatest sources we use to really ground nutritional principles (there’s many dimensions we go into), but one of the foundational ones is the work of Dr. Weston A. Price. And he’s very fascinating to study for many reasons.

“Low carb alternative – Zucchini Noodles in a pan on the stove
by Marco Verch
https://flic.kr/p/2hGwEEX

But just to extract from him some of the principles that really apply to fertility in particular, some of the big ones, are to very deliberately avoid any soy-based foods. A lot of the popular, like tofu, and a lot of the popular like meat replacement foods like soy-based (like it’s supposed to look and taste like meat, but it’s soy product.) Those are actually anti-fertility foods.

And the same goes for a number of the unhealthy oils, including margarine, soybean oil and canola oil. These are all on the no-no list when you’re trying to get into that peak fertility state, peak fertility nutrition. And the other big no-no that I have here on this list (there are many more we can go through in the fuller presentation of this chapter), but all the artificial sweeteners. The ones that come from a laboratory and don’t come from natural sugarcane or other natural fruits, other natural sources of sugar. In moderation, the natural sweeteners are good. But the chemical (artificial) ones are really bad. They’re very carcinogenic and they’re also very much anti-fertility the more you study their effects on the body.

So as I say, this is a very profound condensation of a whole lot more information. But that’s a good start. If you look a little bit into the Dr. Weston A. Price basic diet principles, including these avoid foods I have, that will get your fertility diet off to a great start.

Step 4 is all about hydration, drinking enough water.

There’s many health benefits of hydration; many necessary parts of why we need to be hydrated. But I’m specifically relating that to the topic of hormonal health. And that is because the way our whole hormonal system, our hormonal rhythms, are working in their natural state has a whole lot to do with with our cells being properly hydrated.

“Young woman tourist in the deep jungle with waterfall.
Real adventure concept. Bali island.”
By Artem Beliaikin
https://flic.kr/p/25ebYtv

When they are fully hydrated and they’re on their optimal function, that’s a big way that our hormonal rhythms really take their natural rhythm. The things that are supposed to be turned on and turned off at different times of the month, all the different natural cycles of the hormones are driven by the hydration.

Hydration formula

And I should explain this, I have this little hydration formula here. These are the best, most meaningful letters: “W – 2B”. That simply means if you’re counting your hydration, how people talk about, “Oh yeah, you should be drinking 8-12 glasses of water a day”, adjusted for your body weight and your your exercise and activity levels, things like that. Given that there’s some baseline, something like that, 8-12. This W – 2B what that means is, all the water you’re drinking (let’s say you’re drinking a glass of water a day), but then subtract two times the number of what we call “beverages”, especially including coffee, any of this, soft drinks, a lot of those beverages, which are not pure water, they are, by definition, they are dehydrating.

So, to use the formula here, let’s say you’re drinking 8 glasses of water a day. And let’s say you normally have two cups of coffee a day. We’ll take that 8 and minus 4 (2×2), and you end up with a net hydration of about 4 cups of water a day. So you’re kind of falling way below par there. So I never try to force anyone to stop drinking coffee. That’s usually not a good battle to get into. But I just asked them to consider this formula. And if you really want and need those two cups of coffee a day, we’ll just up your water enough to compensate for that. Your net water gets above the threshold of where you need to be.

The big practical tip around getting enough hydration is something called “sequential eating”. And that’s something that came from Dr. Stanley Bass. And all that sequential eating means is between drinking your water before your meal and going through your meal, you put the most liquid foods at the beginning and the most dense foods at the end.

So as I just said, you start with a glass, or maybe two, of water before your meal – about 20 minutes before you start eating. That primes the digestive tract, primes all the digestive enzymes and so on. It’s a really good thing to do. And by the way, it’s also a good way to prevent overeating because then you get a proper signal about whether you’re full or not, whether that hydration is there as the foundation or not. And then you layer in the soup or the salad, and the lighter foods, the appetizer, and all the way to the densest foods at the end. What you get is an optimized layering in your stomach of how well everything that you’ve taken will be digested.

So even without drinking more water than you normally do, if you sequence your water like that, even if whatever you normally drink isn’t yet optimized, you’re already going to start getting more hydration, just from rearranging the sequence of your water and your your foods based on this idea of a sequence. So anyways, that’s a quick, very practical tip. But a good way of maximizing not only your hydration but also your nutrition and your digestion and how much you’re getting out of what you’re actually consuming. So that’s a really good tweak for, well not just for fertility, but for all health in general.

Step 5 takes us into the general structure that we apply to exercise. And I’m just going to mention some of the basic concepts here. We can get a little bit, actually, if you turn to your book (to your copy of Natural Fertility or “the 8 Steps to Natural Fertility“), you can get a lot more of a detailed explanation. I’m just going to give you the overview here.

So we have this big dichotomy between what we call ‘slow burn’ as one kind of exercise and PACE. Another word (another name) for PACE is ‘interval training’. There’s other names as well, but it’s all the same idea. So the basic idea of slow burn is when you’re doing your weight bearing exercise, is that it’s based on extremely slow movements. I’m not on video right now, but just imagine the usual arm curls or whatever. Just imagine those being taken down to a slow motion video kind of thing. So, if you’re lifting the weight from around hip level, all the way up to shoulder level, you’re going to take maybe about 12-15 seconds to do that – one slow movement up. Then another 12-15 seconds all the way back down to resting position.

“Running the Rainbow”
by Alexander Goodyear
https://flic.kr/p/7L2Pwx

So when you’re doing this slow, slow movement like that, it doesn’t take very many reps at all. Maybe three or four within each muscle group before you have a complete exhaustion of that muscle. And that’s a good thing. That’s the whole point of that kind of exercise. You want to get to the…

(Internet dropped out for a minute)

Okay. So, I was talking about the two forms of exercise. And in talking about the PACE, that’s a form of cardio. And the basic format is say those 30-second sprints or those really intense aspects, alternating with the 90 seconds of the more slow pace. So by the time you get to doing eight repetitions of that, it’s taking you between about 16 up to about 20 minutes. You do five minutes of warm up at the beginning, five minutes cool down at the end. So in less than 30 minutes, you’re getting the maximum possible benefit from cardio. So between the slow burn is the maximum way to do the strength training, or the weight bearing exercise, the PACE as the maximum form to do the cardio. The PACE you can do a couple times, maybe three times, a week. The slow burn, about once every 7-10 days. So for very minimal time input, you can actually get these really maximum exercise benefits. And, as I say, the book goes into slightly more detail. But I think that should give you a good starting point of what the idea is there.

Step 6 is all about sleep. And, of course, in particular, we’re looking at sleep and its relationship to to how your fertility health functions.

And, as I say, here on the on the slide points: sleep is run by hormones, and vice versa, hormones are run by sleep. So the point I mean there is (I apologize for the background noise, I hope that’s not overtaking my voice on your end. But), when you look at our connection to nature in terms of day and night, sunlight versus moonlight, the bright time of the day and the darker time of night, and how our skin ticking in the light, all the all the different light receptors we have – all these signals really trigger our different phases of our day, run by different hormones coming on or tapering off at the different times of day and night. All of that really gives our body the signal, “Oh, the sun is up, it’s time to wake up.” or “Oh, the sun’s gone down, the moon is out. Time to go to sleep.” That’s really the hormone dialogue that’s happening as we go through the day.

“Sleeping” by Kenneth Lu
https://flic.kr/p/Lej6P

And that’s all well and good in the state of nature. When we don’t have electricity, we didn’t have light bulbs, our bodies naturally told us when to go to sleep. But now that we have these screens and electric lights and overhead lights and our houses are all lit up. The problem with that lifestyle is that we end up in what the author T.S. Wiley called a state of “perpetual summer”. Where our body never thinks it’s time to go to sleep.

Now, that’s bad for a number of reasons. I mean, sleep is necessary for all parts of our health. But especially on our quest for fertility, we need that more natural day-and-night sleep rhythm, and therefore the natural hormonal rhythm, so that the fertility part of our whole hormonal rhythm isn’t getting thrown out of whack as well. So anyways, I’m really simplifying this. But the basic point here is you really want to recraft your lifestyle, your house, the lighting and everything. So that when it gets into evening time, you want to start really really toning down the lights. Not having these strong overhead lights using maybe a more subdued side table lamps, things like that. Even getting to candlelight, if you can tolerate that.

And, especially, if you can put down the phones, put down the screens, at least an hour (if not two) before bedtime, you can really start getting your body and all the light signals to really start helping you transition to more the deeper sleep you really want to be getting into. So I’m giving you the simplified version, but I think it’s still helpful to understand at least that much.

Step 7 is all about, well, going on from sleeping in daylight and sunlight and moonlight and everything, let’s look even more specifically at the benefits of sunlight. How we actually generate vitamin D when our skin is exposed to sunlight.

Now, when we’re in a situation where we don’t have a lot of natural sunlight (for example, in the natural time of winter, when we have shorter days, longer, darker nights), that’s when a supplement becomes more necessary. And it’s usually one of the necessary wintertime supplements. But assuming we have a healthy sun exposure through the the sun and the brighter times of the year, you want as much of your skin exposed for at least about 20 to 30 minutes a day. And ideally, not in the high noon, not in the most dangerous part of the sun exposure. But when it’s the sun is more closer to the horizon at the beginning and end of the day, that’s when you get this more gentle but still nourishing version of the sun.

“Sun” by Bruno Caimi
https://flic.kr/p/6wJabP

So I’ll leave that at that – you have natural sun exposure, you have vitamin D supplements when you need. And this is a super important topic we go into a lot more detail in the book. But if you can even begin to incorporate the importance of sunlight, the importance of vitamin D. And, as I say here, the vitamin D is so important. Generally, it’s a deficiency. A lot of people are very deficient in vitamin D. But that being said, we still have to be careful if you’re supplementing. It can become an overdose simply because vitamin D is one of the fat-soluble vitamins. And, that being said, as part of your annual physical with your doctor, you just want to ask for that in your blood test just to make sure your vitamin D levels are in the proper range, and they’re not going over. Now, as I say, most people are going to be way under, but you just want to have that precaution – that you’re not going to push yourself into the overdose range, which is not good for other reasons as well.

And getting to Step 8, “Are we doing it right?” (Or, “Where do babies come from, really?”)

So, of course, we all know where babies come from. From the mechanical point of view, we know we got that from grade six Health class – how the sperm meets the egg and all the things that lead up to the sperm meeting the egg. I hope I don’t have to explain those things to you.

But the biggest, I think, revelation (or important point) in this part of the book is (especially when we get into fertility, this has many other health benefits), but we’ve really learned over the years through our studies and our personal practice as well, we can really talk about two forms of sexuality – two ways of having sex.

“Loving Couple Lying in Bed”
by Richard Foster
https://flic.kr/p/e2BhjM

Number one, what I’m calling “reproductive “; number two, what I’m calling “regenerative”.

And the number one is what you would want to apply during the the fertile times of the month – when the ovulation signals and the hormonal signals and everything. You want to time that for when you’re actively trying to make a baby. But then, when that fertility window closes the rest of the month, you want to get into what I’m calling regenerative sex. And I’ll put it extremely briefly; there’s a lot more detail. We would have to unpack and that’s all in the book again.

But the basic idea, when it comes to the man and the woman, and what’s going on as far as the exchange going on between them, the number one (the reproductive kind of sex), of course, is all about that – sperm being released, entering the woman and going off to meet the egg, that’s one thing. But in the number two (the regenerative sex), it’s a whole other approach.

It is more of an energetic approach where that’s completely not the focus. In fact, the whole technique is really about preserving. Meaning, preserving the male (preserving the man) from having that release. So that instead, between the couple, although bio energy and the emotional energy can actually be circulated between the two, and it’s a much higher pleasure. It’s a much more expensive and energetic form. And it can be very healing to the emotional level of the relationship, individually can be very healing to the organ functions, the kidney and the whole reproductive tract. It can just be a very regenerative, very healing energy.

So as I say, we go into a lot more of the how to’s in the book. But I just want to at least open up the topic here. So you realize that we’ve seen in our work with fertility couples and all the rest, this is actually one of those factors that supercharges a lot of the other things we put in place with nutrition and everything else we’ve talked about. So again, that’s a really kind of lightning tour of that topic, but just put that in the back of your mind. That is something to bring into your fertility practice as well.

Summary

So just to summarize it all, the best places to start, first of all, follow all of the action steps that I outlined above. I also mentioned above, use our Fertility Scorecard at arcanum.ca/fertilityscore. And if, depending on any of the steps we talked about, where sometimes there’s more challenges, there’s other deeper blockages to the to the to the fertility. Sometimes things can come through the family tree as far as certain predispositions to infertility, certain certain things like that. That’s where you will want to turn to us and go more into one or more fertility sessions with us where we can use the the homeopathic side of things to really unblock a lot of more of that inherited side, or even some of the more deeply embedded emotional shocks or traumas, any stresses like that. That’s where we can get more into a deeper fertility treatment on that side.

Questions and Answers

So let me turn back to the camera now. As I said earlier, if you have any questions, you can enter them to the comment box. Let me bring myself back up here. And I think there’s some already some questions entered here. Okay, just some people saying they see me and hear me. That’s when we had the technical trouble a few minutes ago. But yeah, please go ahead if you want to go more depth into anything, any of these points, or even something you may have thought I was going to go into, but that wasn’t in the presentation today. I’m happy to take any questions at this point. I’ll leave this session open for at least a couple of minutes if you’re thinking or if you’re typing. But yeah, otherwise, that’s the end of the formal part of my presentation. At this point, I’ll thank you for joining me. It’s always nice to have someone to talk to rather than talking to my other hand or something, or talking to the mirror that gets lonely after a while. But I’ll leave it open for another minute or so.

“Ohmygoodness” by Haldean Brown
https://flic.kr/p/6u9Z7e

And yeah, we do have a question here. Yes, so the question is on the dosage of vitamin D. And the general answer I give, a lot of it is going to be dependent on, very individual. Like someone’s individual health history, even some basic factors of how well somebody can metabolize, their food in general, supplements in general, like that. That’s one question; just as an example of a lot of the individual factors. But as specific as I can get to your question on how much vitamin D to take. In general, you can look at whatever your brand of vitamin D3 is that you bought. In general, you can go, I’d say, even like two or three times as high as what’s written on the bottle. Adjust to somewhere in there as a starting point.

But again, depending on other individual factors, if you have, as I said, other metabolic deficiencies, you don’t digest well, you don’t metabolize well, or even other, like when I mentioned a moment ago, other kinds of stresses, or emotional blockages, all these things can change how much vitamin D someone needs to take to get how much they need. So as I say, I’m giving you a very, very rough guideline, not to be evasive or whatever. But just to say, it tends to be more than what’s written on the bottle. That tends to be very conservative. But how much for a given person, we can adjust to as at least twice as much, not three times as much. If not even more than doubling or tripling when you get into some of the other individual factors. So that’s the best general answer I can give to that. But I’ll leave that at that. And hopefully, that gives you a beginning indication.

Okay, so I have been bringing this other question up. Yes. So the simple answer is yes. The question is, “In drinking the Sole Brine, is it okay to take a shot of the Sole and then wash it down with a large glass of water?” Absolutely. It’s not like you need that concentrated amount to have an effect on its own. But it’s really about – it’s kind of priming the pump, like you’re really getting that amount of minerals into your system from that shot of Solé. And yeah, it doesn’t matter if you have a further glass of water. That’s perfectly fine.

Will this be available to watch as a replay?

Yes, simple question. This will be available as a replay. You can go back to if you’re watching this on Facebook in the same place you found it or on YouTube. And even better, there’s going to be an even better replay in a few days – not just the video, but I’m going to take all the the spoken word I did. And that’s going to be turned into a text. And we’ll format that as a full written out blog post. So you’ll get like for some people are more visual reading learners. So you’ll even get the full benefits of that. So yes, and yes, there’s going to be a replay and there’s going to be an even enhanced replay beyond that.

Okay, so I think that is the end of the questions. Or maybe wait two shakes of a lamb’s tail more, in case someone is typing right now. But I do, again, thank you. And yeah, do keep an eye out for that more enhanced replay. That’s going to come with the blog post. And, as I said earlier, I do anticipate I’ll be doing further expanded topics like the Step 3, on nutrition. That’s a whole world of things to talk about all on its own. But each of the chapters on its own is probably worthy of a slightly more expanded topic as well. So we’ll see which ones we pick up. And again, I thank you and I will see you in the next broadcast. Take care everyone!
