Announcer:  You're listening to The Doctor Is In Podcast, brought to you by MartinClinic.com. During the episode, the doctors share a lot of information. As awesome as the info may be, it is not intended to diagnose, cure, treat, or prevent any disease. It's strictly for informational purposes.

Dr. Martin:  Well, good morning everyone. How are ya? Hope you're having a great start to your day. Good Friday. Maybe I'm surprising a few of you by having a question and answer Friday, but we sure appreciate folks coming on. I hope you're having a great holiday today for most, I think, right? Okay, let's get to our questions guys. We got lots of them, so let's get going. Sherry. Oh, I want to sing Sherry, I want to sing. "What are my thoughts on artichoke extract? Good for hormone balancing?" Well, I never looked at artichoke for that. I mean, if you Google artichoke usually, and I'm not talking necessarily about the extract, but it will talk about beneficial. It's like a prebiotic and feeding your good bacteria. That's what I always looked at. Artichoke as. I've never experienced, or at least I haven't even heard of anyone ever using artichoke extract for hormonal balancing.

Now I use DIM, and that's from a broccoli extract. Okay? Very concentrated broccoli extract is DIM. D-I-M. I've used that for years, many, many years. And that's what I find blocks estrogen. And that is the key is getting estrogen down because it's never a problem of too little estrogen. I've never seen that. I don't agree with it. Even women in menopause, I don't like estrogen given to them because at the end of the day it's a balance between estrogen and progesterone and they're always have more estrogen when they have trouble. They have more estrogen than progesterone. It's always the case. And I don't like giving women estrogen at all, even if it's bioidentical. I don't like it and I never did it. I always used progesterone to elevate and DIM out the estrogen. Okay, so thanks for the questions, Sherry.

Helena. "My daughter's 19 has the blood disorders. Her spleen is killing her with white blood cells making her count low. She has constant nose bleeds." Yeah, well look, that's complicated, Helena. It's autoimmune and very specific. If she came into my office in my days of doing full biomarkers. Look, one thing I know, without exception, Helena, your daughter would have leaky gut. That's what starts the autoimmune. Okay? Now there's other issues going on, right? I mean now you're like the spleen and the blood disorder. I would number one, look at the gut, leaky gut, fix that as much as possible. And the other thing I would do is get her on the reset because no matter what, she's going to need high density nutrition and better fuel. If the body is to heal itself, you've got to give it all the tools to do so. And maybe if you could, Helena, send me her blood work. I'd like to look at deficiencies. Oftentimes they're very deficient in vitamin B12, vitamin D and things like that, and doctors don't necessarily look for those things. And I'm sure she's on treatment for her disorder, but I'd like to see her blood work. If you could send it to me, I could give you a little bit more guidance.

And, "what is the best protocol for C. difficile?" C. difficile is a difficult bacteria. Where do you get it? In the hospital. So people that get C. difficile, usually they had a trip to the hospital and they get an unexpected bonus for going to the hospital. They often pick up C. difficile. So C. difficile and the word, think of the word difficult in French, "c'est difficile", it's a very difficult bacteria to treat. It's very resistant to antibiotics. I would be taking a mountain load of probiotics. If you're asking about C. difficile, my protocol for it because I saw it, people coming out of the hospital with a very... you know can be, it can kill you. That's how serious C. difficile is. But my protocol was probiotics obviously to replenish the good bacteria. Very, very big on oil of oregano. Okay, and don't for your immune system, very positive, high density nutrition. I go back to the eggs, meat and cheese and lay off the sugar because sugar destroys or puts to sleep your white blood cells and vitamin D. Why do I like vitamin D? Because your T-cells don't work properly without vitamin D. Okay? Even vitamin A. And to get vitamin A, you need vitamin S steak, okay? Because vitamin A is essential for the immune system. So all of those things, Anne would be part of my protocol.

Theresa, "read a lot about cayenne pepper for benefits for blood flow." I like cayenne pepper. Okay, can be very good. I remember there was a cayenne pepper for sinuses. Okay? It was actually a spray. It elevates your nitric oxide. So I like it. I got no problem with it. In terms of benefits for heart attacks and heart attack prevention, well it elevates your nitric oxide, which I like. I like Navitol better to be honest with you, to elevate nitric oxide, but I do like cayenne pepper. Okay, thanks for the question, Theresa.

Monique, "what is the ratio of vitamin D with K2? How much K2 should we take for healthy bones?" Okay, well let me answer this in two parts. If you look at our vitamin D, we have the exact ratio of K2. So for every thousand IUs we have 45 micrograms of vitamin K2, which is the best ratio in terms of research that is shown to be about the best. But let me do this with vitamin K2, okay? Vitamin K2 in a supplement I added to the vitamin D. Okay? Just makes the absorption... Look, what does vitamin D do? Well, vitamin D does a lot of things, but why is it good for your bones? Well, it increases calcium. The K2 takes the calcium that the vitamin D increases and sends it into your bones where it belongs. Okay? Now, what is the best way to get vitamin K2? Food. Where is vitamin K2 found? Well, God has given us eggs, vitamin K2 with calcium. Steak, vitamin K2 with calcium. The best is cheese. Cheese curds have the highest source of vitamin K2. But what do you get in cheese? Calcium and K2. See, God in nature put those two together. He put those two together. That's important to understand.

So when you are a vegan, vegetarians, a little less, a lot of vegetarians will eat cheese, but don't avoid dairy like butter or cheese. Why? Because you have the perfect amount of calcium. Never take calcium as a supplement. I don't like calcium as a supplement, I like you to eat calcium. I like you to eat your vitamin K2 and they're together in the animal kingdom. They're together. God created you, you're fearfully and wonderfully made. And so when you eat and people that tell me, well plants are better than eggs, meat and cheese. I go, no it ain't. How could they be? There's no vitamin K2 in plants. There's vitamin K1, but there's no K2. K2 is found in the animal kingdom right along calcium. The designer knew what he was doing and I know people they, because there's so much indoctrination today.

Guys, it's indoctrination. It's not science and people believe it. They just animal and the dairy's no good for you. And ditch the dairy. I don't say ditch dairy. I say switch it because what you get in the grocery store for milk isn't real milk. It's been denatured, but it's not because I don't like milk. I just don't like grocery store milk. And you can eat all the plants and drink all the plants and oats and almonds or whatever. There's no vitamin K2 in that. Eat butter, eat cheese. Got it? Yeah, cream. Cream has vitamin K2 and calcium. Why do you think I like that? Because cream is real milk. Okay, that way it's supposed debate. Okay, thank you very much, Monique, for the question. It got me going.

Christine, "is it good for diabetics to do intermittent fasting?" Yes, but they might have to get ready for it in a sense that they might have to take their time to get there. Okay, now a diabetic at the end of the day has an allergy to carbs. It's an intolerance. It's just when you get the diagnosis and even before you get the diagnosis of diabetes. If your A1C is above 5.4, you're in the pre-diabetic range and you know, you got to lay off the carbs. It's as simple as that right?

Now, intermittent fasting, I like, okay, I do, I've talked about it for a long time. Intermittent fasting and allowing your body not to eat because it's all based on the premise of when you're eating you need insulin. You don't eat, you don't need insulin. But what do I like even better, not that I'm against intermittent fasting, I'm certainly not, but what is the reset? It's fasting without fasting for a diabetic. Fasting without fasting. What? Well, if you are eating eggs, if you are eating cheese, if you are eating meat, you know how much insulin you need? Not much. So really your fasting without fast, now look, if you got food in your stomach and whatever your digestive tract and not your stomach's going to work that blah, blah, blah. Yeah, I get that. Okay. And so here's me, I'm very big on this.

Stop eating after a certain time at night and then for a diabetic, if they go 12 hours even, they should be fine. They might have to get themselves to that because their body isn't working properly. But it will. You can put diabetes into remission. If you eat right, you're never cured. Never. Okay? But remission and intermittent fasting can be part of that. But I'm really big on not eating at night. And again, diabetics, sometimes I've had a few people and with adrenal exhaustion or whatever. So you take a little snack before bed, but there's a reason I did that and that might be temporary or whatever. Okay, diabetics, once they eat right and they understand that they have an allergy to carbs, they do well. Okay? So I like intermittent fasting and a diabetic can certainly get themselves most of the time to intermittent fast. Okay, thank you for the question, Christine.

Anna, "does sun need to be a certain strength to get vitderma on our skin?" Well look, I mean, good luck in the middle of winter. The sun is always good. Getting in the sun is always good for different reasons. So if you're in the sun, you're going to get some vitamin D, whether it is in the middle of winter or whatever, but you ain't get much. Okay? So I always look at winter, sun. If you live in Canada or in the Northern states or whatever, you're not getting a lot of vitamin D from the sun, probably enough for a mouse. But you're getting melatonin and that's good for you and that's good for your circadian rhythm. It's good for your immune system. Melatonin, I like it. Not to take it necessarily as a supplement, but I like melatonin. Your pineal gland produces it when you're in the sun. Okay?

Now how much? Look, here's the key. You don't have to be butt naked, but getting vitamin D, your biggest solar panels are on your arms and your legs, okay? Those are your biggest solar panels for vitamin D. You'll get a little bit without that, but you'll get a lot more when you expose your arms and legs to the sun. When are you doing that? You're not doing it in the middle of winter. Okay? That's why I'm big on taking vitamin D as a supplement. And what are we at now? At least 90% in my opinion are low and vitamin D because people are scared of the sun and doctors have made us scared even of vitamin D. How crazy as that? I call it the war on vitamin D. Crazy, crazy, crazy. Okay? I don't look at the UV index, okay? That's more made up for the weather man, to keep you out of the sun and to put sunscreen on. The UV index. I used to get crazy when I saw that stuff because it was part of the fear of the sun. It was part of the UV index is high. So what! What's that mean? Well, to the weatherman, that means skin cancer, okay? I'm telling you. Ooh.

Bruce, "why does Harvard say systolic blood pressure is more important?" Okay, so systolic is your first number and Dr. Martin says, I love this. Diastolic pressure is more important. And who's right, Bruce, Harvard or me? Look, they're both important, okay? They are. Your blood pressure, it's important. You take your systolic and diastolic numbers, but I'll tell you why I think diastolic is more important because systolic can be crazy number and I'm not telling you that that's good for you, but it can throw off. Think about this for a second, Bruce. Harvard is talking about in their mind blood pressure if it's high, it's terrible.

I don't disagree with that. But the only thing they can think of is if you got high blood pressure, you got to get it down and that's medication. Okay? Cause the pharmaceutical companies are huge. They're big. Even at Harvard, I'm not saying they're no good, I'm just telling you the way it operates, but I've been saying this for 50 years and plus. The most important number is your bottom number. Okay? Your diastolic. Why is that? Because if it's 90 or up, you're in doo doo, that's when you have high blood pressure. I've seen people on medication when their top number was 140 or 150, but their bottom number was never above 90. It was below 90. Well, to me, that's not high blood pressure.

Now, I never ever, ever tell people not to get on their blood pressure medication when I'm not their physician. I don't do that. I'm giving information how I come to my conclusions. And I think a lot of people are on blood pressure medication and they shouldn't be. I'm big first on lifestyle. I am big on lifestyle changes because there's a reason they have high blood pressure. But like I said, I never got too excited about the top number. In my experience, high blood pressure was when that bottom number was 90 or above. When you're 90 or above, you better make some changes in your life. Okay? That's me. Okay, thanks Bruce for the question. So who's right? Well you decide.

Daniella, "when I do yoga and my head is below my heart, my ears pop." Daniella, I'm calling you, Daniella, unique. I'm just teasing. I'm teasing. Okay. I like to tease. "This has happened for a few weeks. Wondering if this is a side effect of insulin resistance or candida." Maybe, I don't know, Danielle, you might have a little bit of a bacteria in there and your body is trying to get rid of it in your ear canal or whatever. I wouldn't worry about it too much, but it's rare that that happens. And maybe somebody on here can give an answer that they've gone through that or whatever. I'm trying to think if it's insulin. I don't think so. Is it candida? It may be, but just coming up in the last few weeks, I don't know. Somebody give answers there and help out. Okay? You're a good sport, Daniela. I appreciate the question.

Kathy. "My mom wants to stop a statin drug, 20 milligrams she'd been on for many years. What is your opinion the best way to come off and another possible natural replacement?" Well, look, Kathy, look again, I'm going to give general, and I'm not telling your mom to come off statin drugs, yes or no. Okay? All I know is what does statin drugs do? They're looking for love in all the wrong places in my opinion. Statin drugs, lower cholesterol. Why do you want to do that? See, the whole premise is wrong in my opinion. The whole premise blaming cholesterol is like blaming the police because they're at the crime scene. Blaming cholesterol is like blaming the firemen because they're at the fire. They're not the bad guys. And I watched it happen in my lifetime. I watched it happen even when I was in school, because there was no statin drugs when I was in school. I know, the days of Noah, when I was in school, but seriously, we didn't talk about a statin drug. They weren't invented yet. It took them years.

But cholesterol, bad, sun, bad. I see people and they spray themselves. I mean even at the beach you can choke to death for all the sunscreen they use. Okay? "Dr. Martin if you get in the sun, you're going to get cancer." I said, no. Put heat sun with chemicals on the skin. Now you're in trouble in my opinion. But again, they made the sun, the boogeyman, they made cholesterol, the boogeyman. That's why people... Butter. "Dr. Martin butter's got cholesterol, I can see my blood vessels plugging up with butter." No, that's not the way your body operates. So all I'm saying to you, Kathy, all I'm saying to you is why do you want to have low cholesterol? You want to have high cholesterol. And I know, I know, I know, I know. I've heard it all my, all many years now, Dr. Martin, my LDL is high. Good. They're thinking that's bad. I'm telling you that's good. Cause there's no such thing as bad cholesterol. Looking for love in all the wrong places.

Now Kathy, if the Lord allows me to keep preaching, you know what? You're not going to change my mind now. I'm always going to read. I'm studying all the time. I really am. I never stop looking for articles, reading articles, study, study, study. Okay? And that's me always that. But some things are basic. You can't live without cholesterol. Your body makes 85% of your cholesterol and God says, hey you, I don't trust you. So now you got to make up 15%. Now, if you don't do that, let's say you're a vegetarian or a vegan, that means you're not eating any cholesterol. Your body will give you 85% of it. You're going to be low. Oh, I got my cholesterol down. What good is that? If statin drugs, let me just say this. If statin drugs worked, number one selling prescription of all time, if they worked, we would have no heart disease anymore. But they don't work. They haven't even put a dent. Heart disease is worse today because they're looking for love in all the wrong places, not cholesterol. It's triglycerides, it's low cholesterol. That's what will kill you. Now I know those are rants. What do you want me to say?

Jean or Jean? "I am told that refrigerated probiotics are better for you." That's not true. Okay, that's not true. And Jean, the best probiotics are soil based probiotics. They're soil. You can heat them, you can do whatever you want to them. You can't kill them. That's what you want. Okay? Now, am I against refrigerated, and I wouldn't even put them in the refrigerator. If you got probiotics that need to be refrigerated, put 'em in the freezer. But they're not the best. They're not the best. Soil-based probiotics are the best. They last and last. They're like the ever ready bunny. They last and last and last. You can travel with them. Isn't that a better idea? Soil base. Look, I've used both. I was one of the first guys in the universe that talked about probiotics, okay? And I'm going to tell you, I know which ones are the best. All probiotics are good, all of them. But the best are soil based. And when they're a high quality, they go right past your stomach acidity and they do their job. Okay? So Jean hate to tell ya you heard wrong.

Somebody is anonymous. Okay. Hello Anonymous. "My husband is starting a belly." Okay, "now he's on the reset, I think. I'm breathing. My husband is starting a belly on the reset." Well, the reset won't start a belly. Okay, but I think you meant my husband is starting because he has a belly on the reset. "We use yoga resistant bands." Good idea. "Walk, intermittent fasting for 16 hours. Could you explain how the body processes extra EMC?" So look, again, it all comes down to insulin. Okay? So when you have carbohydrates, especially bread, pasta, rice, cereal, sugar, sweets, pastries, muffins, bagels, store bought milk, yada yada ya, those are carbs, okay? They're high in carbohydrates. Now you need a lot of insulin. The more carbohydrate there is, the more stuff turns to sugar rapidly, the more insulin your pancreas needs to produce. It's the amount of insulin. And the more you use of insulin, the more your cells over a period of time will go, insulin, I hate your guts. You're always around. And then insulin says, I don't care if you insist on eating the way you eat. I am going to be around. I'm sorry. That's the way it operates till the day you get diabetes. And then insulin doesn't even work properly anymore.

But it will just pour more and more and more insulin onto your cells. But if you eat an egg, how much insulin do you need? Not much. You see, it's food quality. This is the way you're supposed to eat protein and fat. Not just protein. Protein on its own like protein. Look, I'm not against it, but that's not the way God intended you to eat. You're to eat protein and fat together and no crappy carbs. Now, fruits and vegetables are carbohydrates mostly. And they're all right, but don't live on them. The opposite of what you're going to hear. Okay? So when you lower, Anonymous, you lower insulin, you lower insulin resistance. When you lower insulin resistance, all your biomarkers get better because insulin creates an inflammatory cascade in your body and ain't good.

Okay, Pauline. "Eating rabbit or lamb count as red meat?" Yes, lamb, very good. Rabbit, maybe a little less. Lamb and steak, tremendous. Very high in B12. Okay, rabbit. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. Not quite. Maybe quite as good, but it's good.

Candace, "I just learned that taking a small amount of organic raw honey and Himalayan salt together under the tongue about 20 minutes before going to bed will increase sleep quality." Hey, try it. Very limited amount. Himalayan salt or whatever under your tongue. Hey, I used to tell my patients this. If I thought hanging you upside down from this building we're in would help you, I'd go on the top of the building and hold your feet and turn you upside down. You want to try it? See if it works for you. Okay? I like raw honey. Listen, be careful. Now, raw honey. Yeah, be careful because we live in a world that's different. We're in a new age and what is it? We live in a very high insulin world. We got the bad sugar, high fructose corn syrup. Now remember honey is a fructose. And again, a little bit. Yeah, I got no problem with that. If you're a diabetic, be very careful. Okay? Himalayan salt. You guys know how much I love Himalayan salt? You need salt, okay? So hey, try it. If it works for you, I'm going to give you a high five. Good for you. Let us know. Okay? Thanks Candace.

Lynn, "what are my thoughts on barbecue?" I love barbecue and grilling meats. Well, you can't eat meat raw. Look Lynn here. Okay? Again, boy am I ever opinionated? I never saw myself like that before. Barbecued steak is a wonderful way to eat it. This stuff about ah ya, now you're going to cook them meat, then you're going to get this and that. Then it's bad for you and you know, it's the anti meat people. And they drink their Kool-aid and they believe every word. I'm sorry. How can barbecued steak be bad for you? It tastes so good. You got to cook your steak right? And then it will say don't burn it and don't barbecue it and whatever they, they're the fun police. They're around telling people lies. They're the fun police. Ooh!

Okay, Marty, "Dr. Martin, do you ensure you keep your sunglasses off when you first go outside because the sun likes signals the body to release melanin to prevent burning?" Yeah, I agree with that. And melatonin too, as we talked about Marty, and to that extent, your body's very smart. It'll protect you inside out. But you got to be careful when you're on a bad diet. I know you're not Marty, but other people, okay, when I say this, a bad diet, you look at skin, always go inside out. So one of the things I used to tell people, you'll be able to get more sun ordinarily when you have a good diet. When you get rid of the crappy carbs and those crappy sugars and oils, it's amazing how much better your skin is out in the sun. Yes, sunglasses. They're overrated. I'm not saying, but at least for a good 10, 15, 20 minutes, let your eyeballs get out in the sun without sunglasses. Okay? If you can, there's some people, they're Roy Orbison, okay? What do I mean by that? They always got their sunglasses on, even inside, you know, bright lights might bother them and all this. Say, hey, everybody's unique and different people with adrenal issues, a lot of times they just, I mean their eyes are so sensitive. Okay?

Judith, "why do I taste salt in my mouth?" Okay, well you could be dehydrated, salty can be a sign of diabetes. Be careful. Watch your A1C. Okay? So be careful on that, Judith, that if that's just getting there. If it's been there all your life, you might look at a deficiency in B12. Okay? Or B vitamins but more B12.

Kathy, "do you think lectins cause leaky gut?" No, I don't think it causes leaky gut, but they can have an effect on leaky gut. Okay. I don't don't see it as being a cause. Cause are usually sugars over consumption of sugars, antibiotics, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, chemicals, artificial sweeteners. They can cause leaky gut because they deranged the microbiome. Lectins, do they change the microbiome? I'm not convinced of that, but I would wouldn't eat a lot of lectins, but they can irritate your bowel. Okay. Do they cause leaky gut? I would say no, but they can irritate the gut.

Louise, "what is the difference between taking probiotics on an empty stomach and eating five seconds after you take probiotic?" Well get them down the hatch first. But look, it's only a recommendation. Okay? So if I'm taking my probiotics in the morning with my coffee, well my stomach is empty. That's really probably the best time. And some people, they got such a sensitive stomach, they got to have food in their stomach and they can't take anything. Okay? But there's no difference between an empty stomach and eating five seconds after you take a probiotic. Your stomach is still empty. Okay? So I hope I answered your question, Louise.

Lynn. "Questions about your smoothie. How many carbs are in one serving?" Of what? Dr. Martin's perfect smoothie? Well, depends if you, did you put some berries in there? I don't mind you putting a few berries in there. Okay, so people tell me I'm anti-fruit. I'm not, don't live on it. But for a kid you want to put some berries in there, make that the best tasting. And it's very, very, very low carb. It's not no carb, but it's very low if you keep the berries out of it. Okay? It depends on exactly how you make it Lynn, but you're not getting lots. "Does flax seed contain phytoestrogens?" Yes they do. But listen to what I'm going to say, Lynn. The biggest thing in flaxseed is lingens. It's different than chia seeds, it's different than hemp seeds. It's different than sunflower seeds. It's different than any seed in the universe. Lingens is what's in flaxseed a hundred times more than any other seed. That's why I like flaxseed because they block estrogen. Lingens, block estrogen. Okay, so that's the difference. Thank you very much, Lynn.

Giselle, "Low homocysteine. What does Dr. Martin think of that?" Well, you want low homocysteine and you get high homocysteine when you have low levels of B12. So if you have low homocysteine, good for you. Your levels of B12 must have been good. And there's a connection between homocysteine high and heart disease. Okay, so low is good. Giselle low is good.

"My daughter gets seizures," Babita, "is it okay to drink coffee?" Of course it's okay. Of course. Coffee's good for you. Okay? "What supplements do you recommend?" Well look for nerve B12. Big time for seizures. I'm very big on high D H A. I'm big on Navitol. Crossing the blood-brain barrier. I would do those. Probiotics. Leaky gut, leaky brain. Okay. Vitamin D, Babita. Dr. Martin, you always say vitamin D. I know.

Hazel. "What are my thoughts on cold water immersion?" I like it. I don't like it. I like hot water immersion. I like a hot shower, not a cold one. Okay, but I'm old. No, but listen, there seems to be some studies in that show cold water immersion is good for you. Do I like it? No. After a sauna? Yeah, therapeutically apparently is good. But when you're my age, I don't like that. I like hot water. Okay. Okay.

Oh, another one on epilepsy. Oh, there's seizures. "What are the causes of epilepsy?" Well it could be a lot of things. Okay. Head trauma after concussions, after trauma. Infection. Yeah, lots of things can cause seizures. And you said even with no sugar? Yeah. Well you got to look at something else, Karine. But the best is to reset for epilepsy to actually fix or cure epilepsy.

Joanne, "Demyelination, what is its causes?" It's not MS has been ruled out, but it's MS-Like it's autoimmune. What I used to see, leaky gut, one. Low, low levels of vitamin D and low levels of B12 and usually very low omega-3. Look at all those deficiencies. Okay?

John, "how much do statin pills raise blood sugar and insulin?" Well, I mean it depends, but John, I think I've made the case already and one of the side effects of statin drugs is it increases insulin resistance. Okay. And when you increase insulin resistance, you're increasing insulin. And how much? Well, depends. But at the end of the day, I mean that's one of its side effects. And diabetes is one of the side effects, especially in women of statin drug. Well established, okay, thank you.

Olga. Last question. "Why do I produce so much saliva? A few months ago, no saliva. Now saliva. Previous blood work showed low in potassium. Does this have anything to do with it at all?" No. Low potassium is kidney function. Okay. That's stress on the kidneys and that's usually caused by, Olga, insulin usually. But you got kidney stress if you have low potassium, that's for sure. Saliva, look at silent acid reflux. You might have no symptoms of acid reflux, but you have silent acid reflux and that can create more saliva. Very common than I used to see in practice. B12, anything in the mouth, B12. Look at the deficiency there. Infection? Yep. Mouth bacteria. Body's trying to get rid of it. Look at all those things.

Okay guys, well we had a long session here. Okay, thanks for watching. We appreciate that. Thank you for being a real friend of the Martin Clinic. We appreciate that. And if I teased you, remember I was just teasing. Doesn't mean I don't love you. I used to tease my brothers and sisters and my kids and whatever. Does that mean they didn't love them? I love them dearly. Don't be too sensitive. Okay? I know, listen, we appreciate the questions guys, and we appreciate you very much and you have a great Easter. Okay, love you.
