Elizabeth Yarnell (02:29):
I agree. I think that is maybe the biggest disservice that our medical community does to people is to take away their hope for a better future. But the truth is that the medical community is stymied when it comes to autoimmune diseases like MS And they don't know why they happen or how to really change their course. They just know that what's going to happen. If you get one of these autoimmune diagnoses, then basically you're looking at this downhill slide for the rest of your life, and you're going to get more and more symptoms and become maybe more and more, in pain or disabled, and that all they can offer you some really toxic treatments for MS They're pretty much all injectable, basically chemotherapy. And they all have some pretty dire side effects to each of them. So, and even when you take these medicinal therapies or these pharmaceutical therapies, they don't really even have good efficacy rates. So you're looking at me, I'm 20% improvement in this phase three clinical trial. Is that even worth it for like liver damage and brain damage and total system shut down?
Elizabeth Yarnell (07:37):
Well, I feel that Western medicine is looking in the wrong places. They're looking for answers....They have become so myopic where they just can focus on such a small piece of anything. So here's a great example. I broke my foot last weekend and I called up the orthopedic surgeon ......I'm like, I need to go see an orthopedist. Well, last year I broke my arm and they're like, Oh, well, who do you want to see? And I'm like, well, I want to see the same doctor that I saw when I broke my arm last year. And they said, well, he only sees arms. You have to go to some guy who only sees foot's feet.
Elizabeth Yarnell (15:21):
But beyond that, it's not only just in the medical profession, because it's, what's taught in medical schools that you can't believe anything you weren't taught in medical school and nothing that hasn't had a phase three placebo controlled gold standard trial. And really the more I learned about the human body, there are so many things that just don't work with the phase three placebo control trial with tons of people and everybody getting the same dosage, the same therapies. And in fact, in what I do, which is customized anti-inflammatory diets there there's no universal rules that would apply to everyone. Anyway, in fact, I've even tested a set of twins and found that their test results were radically different from each other. So, you know, if I could say the right diet for all ms. Patients is this, then I could write a book and get super rich, but that's just not how the human..........
Elizabeth Yarnell (38:48):
So I really believe that all of health comes down to inflammation and no matter what your diagnosis is or what your symptoms are, if inflammation is at the root of those problems, then we can work on reducing that inflammation and we are going to eliminating those symptoms. And that's really the whole thing my practice is all about.

your journey as a healer : One night in 1999, two weeks before my 30th birthday, I went to sleep as usual and awoke blind in my right eye. In short order I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and told that I would likely be in a wheelchair by the time I turned 40. It was my then-fiancé who suggested that it might have something to do with my Diet Coke-Crystal Lite-Gummi Bears diet. That's when I started studying the link between what we eat and how we feel.
