Oh Hey, what's up? Thanksfor coming. If you're new here, I'm johnny emotions and I'd like towelcome you to the EMO Dojo. Today we're going to talk about the importanceof your gut microbe fecal transplants. Yeah, you heard that right. And firstwe're going to get to a medicine recall. So please step on in. There's a few people here already. This is emo do Joe. Allright. Well, the Medicine Update. There is a recall on some pharmaceuticalprescription meds. If you take trazodone for depression or Viagra for soft penis,there was a mix up at the factory. TRAZODONE got put in the packaging forViagra and vice versa. So double...

...check that, because you know,if you have my Coxsa flopping and you expecting to get a boner with yourpill, that trazodone will make you depressed because it might actually make your DickSofter. And a side effect of Trazodone, especially for people that aren't like necessace saily depressed, likely is depression itself. Boy. And then,of course, conversely, if you were depressed and you took something you thoughtwas trasitone and all of a sudden your dicks ared. Well, I don'tknow how that's going to make you feel. At any rate, that's not ajoke. That actually happened. And just a minute we will get tothe stories I just read about your gut, microbe and fecal transplants. It's prettyfascinating, but first let me just catch you up on what what's beenup lately. I've kept doing the neurostimulation...

...for my head, still doing thatreligiously daily. I got super busy with work, so I haven't been ableto connect with can, the inventor of the lifted, but that's my fault, so not his fault at all. Just been busy, overwhelmed, Iguess that's the right word. Also, so, man, I bit theinside of my cheek minute ago. One of my inside teeth, tooths,is kind of Jaggedy, kind of chipped off, and it's sharp and abit down on the inside of my left cheek and of course, when youbite down on it, crunch into it, then it protrudes a little bit wherethe little scar is now that you bit into, which makes it thatmuch easier to bite. So I'm having a problem with either to drive mouthor two wet of mouth. It's it. The the adjusters all fucked up rightnow, but that's what happens when I get mad at you know,like you don't pay attention and you'd bite...

...your own fucking tongue. Its horribleand in this case I bit my own cheek. So when you have moodswings and mood disorders, a lot of times you'll look back, especially ifyou records your behavior or, you know, journal or do whatever things like that, just document daytoday stuff. Part of how I do that is throughpodcasting, and I'm able to listen back to the old podcast. Honestly,I don't normally listen back to the old podcast because I know some of themwill make me cringe and I often wonder should I just delete the old ones? I don't know. What are your thoughts on that, because I don'tmind having what they call ephemeral content that just as there and disappears. Ijust need to get it out out of my head, you know. Sothat's one thought. Is maybe just because here, like when I went throughthat crisis, like for pretty much all of November, it was like prettytraumatic and it's uncomfortable for me to go...

...back and listen to those. SoI'm not sure if I should even leave them up, because then people likemy neme Isis this, might use them against me. Not Saying I'm paranoid, but I'm several people that I wish did not listen to me. Iwish I could block them, but you can't block podcast listeners. Yeah,I guess I don't know. You know, people go to pretty great lengths toundermine others for no good reason, really no outwardly rational reason, let'sput it that way. Everybody has what they think is a good reason.For sure, a lot of people just don't think. They don't even thinkof the rationale why they're even acting the way they're acting. Anyway, whatI'm saying is I don't necessarily trust all the people that listen to my podcast, and I don't think they. I think there's a handful of them thathave less than good intentions for me. But yeah, I don't care.The benefit of me sharing and just getting it off my chest outweighs that atall. Getting back to it, should...

I just leave old episodes up foreveror just fucking like leave a week's worth up and then just delete them orput them behind a pay wall? I don't know. I don't like doingthings by the book. I just want to reinventce everything I do all thetime. What do you think of the high coup show notes? Do youeven read the show notes? Does anybody read the show notes? This particularpodcast gets transcribed automatically now, so I don't really need show notes in thatcontext because people can go to the podcast page like you emo dojocom and Clickon and scroll down there's the transcription for the whole fucking podcast. So Idon't really need show notes in that sense because I'm not trying to organize things. I don't it's just not what not with this art project is about really, but I did want to add some art and extra challenge to the production. That's why I like the idea of high coup show notes. But inhindsight I think I might do Hiku show notes but make the title normal.Do you know what I mean? Because...

I'm not sure if the HIKU titlewas attractive enough to the average new person. It might have been a little weird. You could or should let me know what you think on that,and it would be helpful. If not I'm just going to do it myway. I'll probably just do it my way anyway, but right now Idon't know what my way is and you could influence me. So let meknow. Hiku show notes as the title or just lower down in the shownotes, because I sure as hell not write an actual show notes, likein this episode, to talk about this and that and fucking that and theother thing. No, I don't think so. It would be nice tohave a producer. You see all the podcasters, I mean Vloggers, peoplevideo shows on Youtube and stuff and like, Oh yeah, I want to dothat. Well, a lot of those people have staff, you know, staff, staff, like to three people. Sometimes they're on screen,sometimes they're not on screen. It's a lot of work to put this together. Since I do it alone, I...

...rely on your input to make itmore listenable for you. Otherwise I'm just you, just witnessing art project kindof dynamically as it happens. Man, I don't know if it's that neurostimulationdevice, transcranial electro fuck, I forgot the whole name. Basically it's APPsyour brain with low voltage electricity, but I've been doing it regularly and morethan it says to on the box, because, yeah, I'm a risktaker and you know, if it doesn't work a little bit, try alittle more. That's what I always say. Anyway, now I've been using theelectro stimulation device and something change. I don't know if it is thefucking astrology or Zapping my brain or realization of a situation that I thought wasone thing is actually a different thing. And sometimes when you catch a glimpseof reality, it's like, Oh,...

...what a fucking relief. That's it, that's that's the thing. Okay, I can deal with that. Butif you're presented with an alternate reality and you believe it's real and then itfalls apart, that's traumatic and that's kind of what I dealt with all oflast month, including, like nobody to spand Thanksgiving with, which sucks.But you know, I'm sure everyone out there's like, oh, yeah,but that's great, you didn't get coronavirus. And yes, of course I didnot get coronavirus over thanksgiving. So cool, great, can make anotherpodcast, I guess. So let's talk about gut, microbiome, Microbiota.I'll use microbiome. I'm not entirely sure those two terms are interchangeable, butwe're talking about the the bacteria in your guts. Okay. So here's whatthey found out. They were studying mice, as they do. They stress somemice out and they found out that...

...when they stress a mouse out,it's guts secrete a certain fat, alyppic acid, gets secreted into the bloodstream via your guts, your intestines, which, remember, have just asmany neuroreceptors as your brain, more actually of the same type. In fact, if you look at your guts, it's kind of like a brain inyour belly. So, anyhow, when they stress the mice out, theirguts secreted lippic acid, went into their blood stream, went up to theirbrain. Their brain then reacted to the stress signals coming from their belly andtried to correct doing whatever the brain thought was necessary. Well, that's wherethe disorders, mood disorders, come in, specifically depression. Is What they werestudying with the mice, and so there is a mechanical process to it. You get stressed out, your gut...

...secrete fat, the whole mixture affectsyour brain and now your brain goes hey, why are trying to fix the overallproblem. So some of you may have heard of this technique called fecaltransplant, where they take healthy poop and put it in the guts of somebodywith an unhealthy system and it can reset them. Sounds gnarly, sounds Gross, and I don't I mean when you say fecal transplant, you just Iimagine, like a Dukey somehow stuck sticking it up from one guy's buddy intoanother person's but like that sounds gross, but obviously it's not that. It'snot as gross as I imagine it. It's very microscopic. It doesn't takemuch. So we already know, and other tests about other things, thatweekend fix bad gut microbiome with good poop...

...from someone else. Well, inthis case with the mice, they took mice with mood disorders now because theywere stressed out because their poop had that lactic basilic in it, and thenthey put the stressed out poop in a healthy mouse and the healthy mouse gota mood disorder. How about that? So I recap, they took amouse with the mood disorders poop and put it in a healthy mouse and thehealthy mouse got a mood disorder. So then the next step seems like,how about if we can fix the mood disorders with healthy poop? Would youdo that? Would you fix your depression by having somebody else's fetal matter transplantedinto your guts? I'd have to hear...

...some eyewitnesses and patients who have gonethrough it first, but I would consider it because mood disorders are fucking miserable. You get so goddamn sensitive and like right now I'm in that part ofmy mood disorder where I hate my other self. I'm like, what afucking pussy like? Man Up, quit being so fragile. So you haveto deal with that. That's the thing we have to deal with. Wehave to do like with the self hatred of the other guy. It's notlike a split personality thing. I don't think that was literally another personality anotherperson it just that when you're in the mood of that, you're stuck in. It's kind of like when you have the flu or something, or whenyou're about to sneeze. You can't control the sneeze. It happens. Itjust happens when you have the flu or something, when you're sick, you'rejust fucking sick. And you react the best you can while you're while you'rein it. Then you get better and then most people don't hate themselves becausethey got the flu, but people with mood disorders often times hate ourselves becauseof the way we were previously. And...

...after a while, when you wornout all your loved ones, there's no one to reflect off of. Soyou don't even know how to handle crawling out of the hole. You don'teven know if you're doing it right. So it just becomes exponentially harder.So you have to get tough. You just got to keep trying, keeptrying. So anyway, it's Sunday. Going to get back on it,Monday, tomorrow. It's snowed last night. Got About I don't know, threeor four inches of snow on the ground. Probably be melted by themorning, but I'm sure the roads are going to be Shit Sho so Ihope your week starts off well and thanks for joining me in the EMO Dojoe. And now back to the wall.
