On today's episode we are joined by the pioneer of Bioacoustic Biology herself,  Sharry Edwards, to teach us about the link between sound frequency and health. Sharry provides the leading-edge research to show voice as a holographic representation of the body and how it can be used to change the face of medicine. Sharry's work shows that we can achieve health and emotional balance through the use of frequency based biomarkers.  Using the unique techniques of Vocal Profiling and evaluation, emotional as well as physiological issues can be revealed and addressed. Sharry's work with the human voice reveals that people who share similar traumas, stresses, diseases, toxicities…share similar, if not identical, vocal anomalies. She brings together ancient knowledge with modern ideas of harmonics and frequency relationship theories to show that math can be used as a form of predictive, diagnostic and curative foundation for wellness. Episode highlights: • Kayla's voice profile • Hearing otoacoustic emissions • Altering blood pressure with sound • What your voice tells you about your health and personality • Metabolic syndrome frequencies • Test your state of health through the sounds of your voice  • How sound can replace prescription drugs • Healing and mapping the body by frequency • Does 5G worsen coronavirus cases? • Sound treatment for nerve repair • The dangers of voice manipulated media • The future of medicine and Bioacoustic Biology • How to become a Bioacoustic Biology practitioner Contact Sharry Edwards • Website: https://soundhealthoptions.com/ • Courses: https://soundhealthportal.com/ • Twitter: https://twitter.com/SoundHealth • Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/soundhealthoptions/ Sponsors: • Formula nootropics: https://www.findmyformula.com/?rfsn=3819541.5e41a8 • Biostrap: https://biostrap.com/select-your-set/?ref=kaylaosterhoff. *use listener discount code "BIOCURIOUS" Connect with Kayla: • Instagram: @biocurious_kayla https://www.instagram.com/biocurious_kayla/ • BioCurious Co-op: https://www.biocuriouskayla.com --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/biocurious/message

This episode is all about the brain! I visited New Mind Technologies, who have developed devices for brain mapping and neurofeedback. During my visit, I had a brain map done and discussed the results for a really up close and personal view of what's going on in my brain. I received some fantastic recommendations on ways to improve cognition, anxiety, focus, and mood, in addition to lifestyle and behavioral changes that will improve brain performance. On this episode we discuss: Why brain maps need to be done with the eyes closed AND open The types of things that you can discover from a brain map report Recommendations for achieving a peak-performing brain What an EEG can tell you about your mood Why a brain map may look different based on the time of day How daylight savings time changes can affect the brain Why each brain wave frequency can provide us with different information about our brain Alpha and Beta brain wave asymmetry being indicators of depression and anxiety Brain training as an alternative to medication for depression How the brain is continuously monitoring your environment Why meditation can help keep your brain focused and optimized Supplement deficiencies and how they relate to brain health Photic entrainment and how you can use it to train your brain The harmful effects of blue light at night How just one night of poor sleep can impact brain performance How diet changes can change how the brain functions How neurofeedback training sessions can improve your anxiety and depression Why the brain loves patterns and how that relates to the challenge of forming new habits Receptors in the brain and how they can be overloaded by substance abuse How you can decrease the effects of trauma on the brain Using alpha/theta training as a way to "cheat" at meditation Connect with New Mind Technologies: Website: newmindtraining.com/ New Mind Academy: newmindacademy.com Youtube Channel: HERE Instagram: @newmindtech Connect with Kayla: Instagram: @biocurious_kayla [Web] https://www.biocuriouskayla.com Sponsors: Formula nootropics: https://www.findmyformula.com/?rfsn=3819541.5e41a8 Listener discount code: biocurious Biostrap: https://biostrap.com/select-your-set/?ref=kaylaosterhoff.

In this episode we take a closer look at the Covid-19 situation to uncover the truths and myths about the virus, examine the data, and discuss the outlook on the pandemic. Our guest is Dr. Mary Schmidt, a top infectous disease and internal medicine physician who holds a master's degree in Public Health from John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and is the associate professor of Clinical Medicine at Virginia Commonwealth University. Dr. Schmidt is here to share her knowledge about the virus and the emergency response efforts. We are so lucky to have her on the podcast as she is a renowned expert in emergency response and has been interviewed on several national and local media outlets about Covid-19. On this episode we discuss: Are face-masks beneficial for everyone to wear, or only specific people? What's the best material for a face-mask? Do cold temperatures kill the coronavirus? Will warm weather increase the spread of the virus? Were people infected with the virus as early as December 2019 and didn't know what it was? Did the lunar new year contribute to the spread of the virus? Is Covid-19 a bioweapon? How the virus was traced back to a particular bat population in China What the next few months could look like if states are not consistent with their stay-at-home orders The factors that are contributing to the virus spreading so quickly Why multi-family, low-income households are potentially more at risk Theories on the different mechanisms in play for how the virus operates in the body When it's the appropriate time to seek medical attention or call 911 Some positive outcomes and an expression of gratitude to essential service workers Sponsors: Formula nootropics:  https://www.findmyformula.com/?rfsn=3819541.5e41a8 Listener discount code: biocurious Biostrap: https://biostrap.com/select-your-set/?ref=kaylaosterhoff.

This week we are lucky enough to have a brilliant infection disease doctor on the podcast, Dr. Sary Beidas, to discuss the pathology and treatment options for Covid-19. So far I've really only shared information on the epidemiology and public health science aspects of the outbreak, but I haven't gone into detail on current and potential treatments (as it's not my area of expertise). I have been receiving a lot of questions about the current and potential Covid-19 treatments, so I thought it was best to have an expert inform us on these topics. Dr. Saudi Beidas, who is one of the leading infectious doctos in the U.S. was gracious enough to offer his time to provide us with the medical perspective on Covid-19. I'm very grateful for the insight he shared, as I learned a lot from this conversation and I think you will as well! Dr. Sary Beidas, MD is an infectious disease specialist in Orange Park, FL and has been practicing for 30 years. He graduated from Fac Med U Jordan, Amman in 1983 and specializes in infectious disease medicine. On this episode we discuss: Dr. Beidas' background and how he became involved with studying infectious diseases How Covid-19 presents itself, and how it spreads through the population Treatment methods that are currently being used and researched How Covid-19 differs from the flu Why losing your sense of taste and smell could be an early sign you have contracted Covid-19 How to measure the oxygen saturation in your lungs using a pulse oximeter Remdesivir, Zithromax, Hydroxychloroquine: their risks and potential in treating Covid-19 Why heart problems may put you at higher risk of developing more severe viral symptoms How safety issues can arise when scaling up drug or vaccine trials The correlation between smoking and a higher mortality rate from Covid-19 Why behavioral and lifestyle changes are critical to maintaining a healthy immune system The time that Covid-19 can survive on various surfaces Preventative measures you can take to keep yourself and others safe Some alternative treatments that MAY be effective for treating Covid-19 (do your own research) Why NSAID's could potentially make things worse when using as a treatment for Covid-19 Connect with Kayla: Instagram: @biocurious_kayla [Web] https://www.biocuriouskayla.com Sponsors: Formula nootropics: https://www.findmyformula.com/?rfsn=3819541.5e41a8 Listener discount code: biocurious Biostrap: https://biostrap.com/select-your-set/?ref=kaylaosterhoff.
