The reason that people want to stick around and listen to this, is that mast activation syndrome is one of the most under-recognized conditions, and one of the most common, which is so interesting about it. Because studies have shown us that between 9 and 17% of the general population have mast activation syndrome. So we just take a second to think about that. We're talking like at least 1 in 10 people, that's quite a lot. And that's just a general population.
Beth O'Hara 07:10
Our mast cells are in every system in the body, almost every tissue. So we have to know that to think about the symptoms, and that the mast cells are here to be our frontline defending immune cells. So they're sensing toxins and pathogens, they're also sensing stress.
Beth O'Hara 09:28
So you take your front line defenders of your immune system, you knock out their response, and they coordinate the whole immune response to you just kind of knock that whole part out. And then the Lyme, Bartonella, babesia, Epstein Barr the mold, colonize in the body and had free rein. So that's the approach that is different is learning, not think about the mast cells or what's wrong and knock that out, we need to think about what's triggering underneath that's making the mast cells over-reactive.
