Highlights from today's episode include:  

Dr Matt (05:33):

I've Noticed a qualitative shift. I'm so curious what you think, how you feel.... I've noticed a qualitative shift in people's nervous systems, We're more on alert, more on guard, more, in that flexor reflex, afferent fight or flight sympathetic overdrive, you know, nor epinephrin fuelled fear state, we are just kind of..... In this, this ocean of fear and that's changed, you know, that's been an issue

Dr Matt (08:18):

i feel one of the big issues in our society is that people are sort of cutting down from here, like talking heads already disembodied......being disembodied and then asking people to wear masks and then believing or expecting that we're going to become more. Heart-Centered. I mean, that's a big leap.

Dr Matt (11:39):

I mean, no disrespect to any chiropractors who are watching this, but chiropractors who solely focused on pain or, Hey, nice to see, mrs. Jones, crack, crack, crack, pop, pop, pop, see you later. Those are the guys that are really struggling and they're struggling for a few reasons.

Dr Matt (14:54):

I've seen the situations where people are just really struggling. And then I've seen this situation where people are really thriving and the more holistic and the more emotionally attuned people are and the better communicators there are. And they have effective systems that actually work with the whole person they're doing really well.

Dr Manon (17:10):

The board standing up for for chiropractors saying, this is essential. We were as naturopathic doctors, also considered essential, but here's the kicker. We were not allowed to talk about the immune system. We were not allowed to say our truth.

Dr Matt (28:25):

The vast majority of people in the United States either don't have access to that, or don't have economic access to that. And so we look at communities that are disproportionately affected, whereas a major conversation about how many dollars you have to buy foods that are healthy. And when it's Kraft macaroni and cheese and processed grains and processed meats and Sugar Sugar Sugar huge amounts of obesity, hypertension, high blood pressure, diabetes prediabetes, all of these predisposing conditions where you've got loads of cytokines, loads of inflammation, loads of emotional stress in the community because people in survival and all of a sudden now damn, and that's to say that wealthy people aren't affected, but it's, it's different. It's very different.
