[00:55] About Functional Cranial Release

  • It’s a manipulation of the cranium using a force from inside out.
  • The force is expansive, and it takes the pressure off of the bone called the sphenoid bone, which is in the center of your head.
  • Information around cranial work needs to get out there. It’s a little known technique that people need to hear about.
  • People with chronic headaches or balance disorders can significantly benefit from a functional cranial release.

[05:15] Understanding Melatonin

  • People can take higher doses of melatonin for inflammation.
  • Melatonin also works on the mitochondria; it’s an essential structure for every cell in our body.
  • You don’t want to burn your cell out. Things are going in and out of the cell membrane. You want it to be as clean as possible.
  • The mitochondria make its own melatonin. It does it for a significant reason – when things get too hot, melatonin will cool it done. You get oxidation from the burning of energy; melatonin will quench the oxidation.
  • Oral absorption of melatonin is low – only about two percent is absorbed into the body. The suppository is a direct route into the bloodstream.
  • Check out Dr. Lieurance’s product SandMan Sol™. It contains 250mg of Glutathione, 200mg of Melatonin, Terpene Blend (Limonene, boswellia), and their proprietary AP0-808™ probiotic strain. The body’s two most potent antioxidants, Glutathione, and Melatonin together!


[12:30] How Cancer Works

  • Cancer happens when the cell no longer can make energy efficiently, and it goes to a primitive way of creating energy.
  • Instead of making 36 ATPS, you only make 4.
  • Because of inflammation, you make less energy.
  • The Cytokine Storm is what kills people.
  • Melatonin can penetrate the cell and quench the cycle so you can start making energy effectively.

[19:50] You Won’t Shut Down Your Ability To Make Melatonin

  • There is an idea that too much melatonin is somehow a danger. However, there is no negative feedback.
  • When you take testosterone, you’ll make less of it. With melatonin, this doesn’t happen. You can take high doses, quit, and the very next night, you’ll produce the same amount of melatonin.

[21:10] Other Cool Things About Melatonin   

  • Melatonin is critical for disease prevention and slowing down aging.
  • When don’t have a lot of energy, it’s common for people not to clean their house. Whenever everything is clean, everything is more effective. The same thing happens in your body. When you don’t have energy, your body will start doing what is most important and go into survival mode.

[25:25] How To Increase Melatonin In The Body

  • Getting sunlight first thing in the morning will help produce melatonin in your body.
  • People wear sunglasses too much. Be smart about it. Don’t go out on the paddleboard all day long and burn your eyes. However, it would help if you had sunlight throughout the day. Before 11 am, and after 4 pm, you should be able to navigate without sunglasses.
  • The green and blue lights will suppress melatonin. People are watching TV, on their cell phone and their iPad. It’s keeping you up at night.
  • Buy red rope lights to put around your house. The lights on the wall switches should not be used at night.
  • Buy blue-blocking glasses and turn on the night shift for your phone.
