As a Preventative:

  • 10-15 drops once weekly or monthly

After Exposure: ( you don’t have the flu but have been around someone who did)

  • 10-15 drops 1-3 x daily

Acute Dosing–( you have the flu)

  • 10-15 drops every 15 minutes up to 3 hours

Once Symptoms Improve ( mild  to moderate dosage)

  • 10-15 drops every hour up to 8 hours

NOTE: 2100 drops per bottle.  A good rule of thumb is on the same day of the week, let’s say Sunday, do the preventative dosing–to ensure you won’t get the flu to begin with.

The Top Benefits of Ozonated Olive Oil

The Top Benefits of Ozonated Olive

A bowl of organic olive oil. It acts as an antioxidant, allowing lactic acid and toxins to be released from the pores of the skin.

Ozonated Olive Oil is a powerful natural remedy for a variety of health concerns, especially those related to skin health. I wanted to share an overview of just exactly what this healing oil is, and how it works.

What is Ozonated Olive Oil?

Ozonated olive oil is made with high quality, organic, extra-virgin, cold pressed olive oil that is put through a process of “ozone injection”, which is bubbling ozone into the liquid for an extended period of time. Many companies use a cheap corona discharge ozone generator that can lead to contamination. For purity and quality a cold plasma ozone generator should always be used. When searching for a high quality source of ozonated olive oil, ask the company if they are using a corona or cold plasma unit. Ozone is a reactive gas and is very hard to stabilize, but by passing it through the oil, contained within an ozone resistant container, the ozone gas begins to interact and stabilize within the oil. As it is continually processed, the ozone slowly begins to turn the liquid form of the oil into a off-white colored paste.

What is the difference between ozonated olive oil “liquid” and ozonated olive oil “paste”?

The difference between the liquid oil and solid paste is the amount of saturated oxygen and ozone. Creating the paste version the process is much more extensive and the amount of oxygen and ozone saturation level is exponentially greater than any liquid oil product available.

As an example, the ratio of O2/O3 in liquid ozonated olive oil formulas can only contain up to a percentage of roughly 10%, whereas ozonated olive oil paste contains up to 50% saturated oxygen/ozone, by volume. Also, the liquid does not have the long time release which ozonated olive oil paste does, which can last up to 12 hours or more when applied to the skin.

The Top Benefits of Ozonated Olive Oil

Ozonated Olive Oil holds a variety of health benefits, but is most commonly used for conditions of the skin and external body, much as you would use a therapeutic salve or cream. As a massage paste, the ozonide acts as an antioxidant, allowing lactic acid and toxins to be released from the pores of the skin. Other benefits and uses include:

  1. Stimulation of growth for skin cells
  2. Speeds up healing-time for skin wounds and ulcers
  3. Cleans and sterilizes the epidermis
  4. Reduces swelling and redness
  5. Calms the nerves and reduces the amount of pain in skin conditions
  6. May increase cellular function and cellular memory
  7. Acts as a free radical scavenger on harmful toxins
  8. Acts as a moisturizing facial conditioner (leave on for 20 minutes and promptly remove)
  9. Aids in healing processes and reduces scarring
  10. Promotes healthy skin conditions
  11. Good for removing makeup
  12. Good for animal wounds, as it is all natural, and can be licked
  13. Sunburn of the skin
  14. Insect bites and stings
  15. Infections of the sebaceous glands (sweat)
  16. Can be used as a natural underarm deodorant
  17. Hemorrhoids – One of the best natural remedies
  18. Sore muscles (rub as a massage paste)
  19. Cellulite Reduction
  20. Wrinkles
  21. Ringworm
  22. Bed Sores
  23. Cuts & Burns
  24. Skin Yeast
  25. Carbuncles
  26. Diaper Rash
  27. Tinea Versicolor
  28. Dermatitis

What is Coronary Calcium Score

CORONARY CALCIUM SCORING

Coronary calcium is a marker for plaque (fatty deposits) in a blood vessel or Atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). The presence and amount of calcium detected in a coronary artery by the Electron Beam Tomography (EBT) scan indicates the presence and amount of atherosclerotic plague.  These calcium deposits appear years before the development of heart disease symptoms such as chest pan and shortness of breath.

A calcium score is computed for each of the coronary arteries based upon the volume and density of the calcium deposits.  This can be referred to as your certified calcium burden.  It does not correspond directly to t he percentage of narrowing in the artery but does correlate with the severity of the underlying coronary atherosclerosis

The score is then used to determine the calcium percentile, which compares your calcified plaque burden to that of other asymptomatic men and women of the same age.  The calcium score, in combination with the percentile, enables the physician to determine your risk of developing symptomatic coronary artery disease and to measure the progression of the disease and the effectiveness of treatment.

A score of zero indicates that there is no calcified plaque burden.  This implies there is no significant artery narrowing and a very low likelihood of a cardiac event over at least the next 3 years.  It does absolutely not rule out the presence of soft, noon-calcified plaque or totally eliminate the possibility o a cardiac event.

A score greater than zero indicates at least some coronary artery disease. As the score increases, so does the likelihood of a significant coronary narrowing and the likelihood of a cardiac event over at least the next 3 years, compared to people with lower scores.  Similarly, the likelihood of a coronary event increases with increasing calcium percentiles.

Procedure:

High resolution, non-contrast, limited Electron Beam Tomography (EBT) images the coronary arteries and proximal great vessels. The procedure takes less than 5 minutes and the only requirement is no caffeine 4 hours prior to the test.

Osteoporosis Info, Links, Comments

Osteoporosis Info, Links, Comments

Osteoporosis literally means porous bone. The word refers to a horrible disease in which bones become fragile and much more likely to break, and the skeleton looses its integrity and turns into a terrifying time bomb inside of you. Osteoporosis makes an everyday act, like going to the mailbox, fraught with the danger of a hipbone snapping simply from the act of walking. Osteoporosis is seen much more often in women than in men, and it can begin when you least expect it.

Though osteoporosis is generally considered an old woman’s disease, this is not actually the case. The most recent data from the National Osteoporosis Foundation shows that about 12 million people in the U.S., age 50 or over, already have full blown osteoporosis, and another 40 million are on the doorstep of the disease because they have low bone density, a condition known as osteopenia. Unless proper intervention is taken, women with osteopenia almost always slide into osteoporosis.

Although the common wisdom says those younger than 50 only rarely exhibit symptoms of osteoporosis, a study from the University of Arkansas found the disease to be a greater risk than most women suspect. Researchers collected information on 164 women of typical collage age, and found that 2 percent of them had bone densities low enough for them to qualify for a diagnosis of osteoporosis, and 15 percent had bone densities low enough for a diagnosis of osteopenia.

There are no symptoms when osteopenia begins. There is no pain or change as bones becomes thin, brittle and less dense. As you progress to osteoporosis, the first signal of disease is often a bone breaking from only minor injury and in some cases, from no injury at all. Other symptoms include:

  • Back pain caused by a fractured or collapsed vertebra
  • Loss of height over time as vertebra deteriorate and compress
  • Stooped posture and distended abdomen (the body takes on the shape of an S)

Mainstream media and the medical establishment perpetuate the myth that osteoporosis is caused by a deficiency of calcium, and support the notion that calcium supplements are the answer. But this fails to explain why Americans, who have the highest rates of calcium consumption in the world, also have the highest rates of osteoporosis.

There is a psycho-social component to osteoporosis, as the disease is usually seen as a woman’s own fault. (She has osteoporosis because she doesn’t eat right, doesn’t take enough calcium pills, doesn’t exercise enough etc.) And nothing herald’s aging more than a stoop.

Factors that speed the way to a diagnosis of osteoporosis include:

  • Poor diet during formative years
  • Being athletically active as a young woman (results in low estrogen levels)
  • Radiation (including mammograms)
  • Use of synthetic corticosteroids such as prednisone
  • Being a thin white woman
  • Having Celiac, Crohn’s or any other disease that blocks nutrient absorption
  • Smoking
  • Eating disorders
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Prolonged use of birth control pills
  • Chemotherapy

The truth about osteoporosis is that bone is an endocrine tissue. In both women and men, bone expresses receptors for the steroid hormones estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. This is undeniable full faced evidence that optimal and balanced levels of these hormones is essential for healthy bones, and it is the reason that osteoporosis, like all the degenerative diseases, does not show up until hormones have diminished.

Estrogen, progesterone and testosterone directly power the two essential components for the production of healthy bone. They are:

  • Osteoblasts–new bone cells
  • Osteoclasts–old bone cells

It is important at this point to realize that bone is not static. It is instead a dynamic process in which new bone is constantly being made, and old bone removed in a process known as resorption. When steroid hormones are at optimal levels and in balance, bone is healthy and strong. And when hormone levels decline and become unbalanced, the disease process begins.

In both women and men, osteoblasts are powered by estrogen and testosterone. Osteoclasts are powered by progesterone.

Progesterone and Bone: Actions Promoting Bone Health in Women

Osteoblasts are in charge of producing bone matrix and mineral. Ideally, they work as a team with components of bone marrow and osteoclasts for optimal bone formation.

The function of osteoclasts is critical in the maintenance and repair of bone. Bones are stronger than aluminum on a weight basis, and are a composite material of approximately equal amounts of hydrated protein and mineralization.   Osteoclasts disassemble this hardy composite at the molecular level by producing collagenase, an enzyme that destroys collagen.

Osteoblasts and osteoclasts together control the amount and quality of bone tissue you have in your body. This means that when you have optimal levels of balanced steroid hormones, osteoblasts and osteoclasts will work in harmony to produce healthy bones, and not a sign of osteoporosis will be seen, no matter what your age.

Hormones are essential to total body health and well being

There’s more to hormones than high quality bones. Hormones are of supreme importance to your overall health and well being. They are the great communicators of the body, by sending chemical messengers that transfer signals and instructions from one set of cells to another. When all hormones are present at optimal levels, not only is harmony restored to your osteoblasts and osteoclasts, but to your body as a whole.

Developing osteopenia or osteoporosis is a signal that your hormones need attention.

Don’t discount hormones. They are so important that they have a branch of biological science devoted to them, known as endocrinology. Even the medical establishment grudgingly recognizes the tremendous importance of hormones, and labels doctors who specialize in them as endocrinologists.

Hormones influence and regulate almost every cell, tissue, organ, and function of the human body, including growth, development, metabolism, and sexual and reproductive function. Hormones orchestrate the maintenance and balance of our internal terrain, through a process known as homeostasis..

NOTE on Vitamin D:

Vitamin D must have Vitamin K in order to be effective. A good rule of thumb is to have your vitamin D level checked first and then supplement if need be. Although standard reference ranges are 30-100, as with iron, the best reference range is 40-60.

NOTE HORMONE TESTING:

As written above, hormones play a vital role in the prevention of Osteoporosis.  Before using any bioidentical hormones, i strongly recommend a Saliva NOT Blood test for Hormones as Saliva has both the RNA & DNA and as such is a more accurate marker than conventional blood test which can only measure one point in time.. Once you know the facts then and only then should you and your KNOWLEDGEABLE Health Care “Assistant” should decide on a path to take and then re-check via saliva every 6 months

Here is a link titled When Saliva When Serum

NOTE ON CALCIUM:

Osteoporosis has nothing to do with calcium.  One of the best products I have ever recommended for Osteoporosis is Magnifical and although the last three letters are “cal” there is no calcium in this product.I rarely recommend Calcium supplementation because it causes more problems than it solves. Calcium being a “hard” mineral causing hardening of the heart valves, coronary arteries and other situational issues

Calcium is vital for the strength and development of bones and teeth. Along with magnesium, it transmits nerve and muscle impulses and stabilizes cell membranes, decreasing their permeability to cellular toxins and allergens. Calcium is also necessary for proper blood coagulation. The UK and the WHO (World Health Organization) recommend 500-700mg per day which is the guideline I follow as opposed to the US recommendation of 1000-1500mg daily. 600mgs daily can easily be had through green leafy vegetables, bone broth, nuts, seeds especially sesame seeds (used throughout the middle east where there is no dairy available and as a last result raw dairy if nothing else is available.

NOTE ON BORON:

This list of Boron rich  foods is good to know but not practical on a day to day basis. It may very well be easier to take a Boron supplement and supplement the supplement with foods on the list below whenever able to

  • Beans (black, Lima, Kidney, Snap Peas, Mung)
  • Artichokes                         Apricots
  • Berries                              Cocoa
  • Cherries                           Apples
  • Sweet potatoes                Pears
  • Onions                             Avocado
  • Pecans                            Grapes (including pure grape juice)
  • Walnuts                           Oranges
  • Figs                                 Coffee
  • Prunes/plums                 Red  Wine
  • Peaches                         Raw Milk (organic, unpasteurized)

NOTE: For decades I have recommended the Deoxypyridonoline DPD Urine Pyrlinks Test which measures the amount of Osteoblasts vs. Osteoclasts.  As long as there are more Osteoblasts then Osteoclasts, you are in good shape. This test is considered the Gold Standard because its accuracy far outweighs the standard Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptionmetry  most doctors use for osteoporosis determination.

NOTE: Drugs like Fosamax and Prolia interfere with the breakdown of dead cells (Osteoclasts) and as such, dead bone cells are not being eliminated to make room for new fresh bone cells ((Osteoblasts)) to replace them. This causes “spontaneous fractures” which is when you are sitting down watching TV and your arm or leg suddenly breaks.  This has been well documented and was shown in a i hour piece on ABC News a while back.

NOTE: I originally included a list of recommendations including supplements BUT decided not to for more than one reason.  The very first items on an Osteoporosis checklist would be to have both the Deoxypiridonoline DPD Urine Pyrlinks Test and Saliva Test for Hormones. Once those are completed, a treatment plan should be created and after a number of months or a year give or take be re-tested to determine if what was recommended delivered the expected results.

NOTE: You do not fall and break your hip–your hip broke and you fall as a result!!

Horse Chestnut for Hemorrhoids

Horse Chestnut: Helping Hemorrhoids for Centuries

Horse Chestnut: Helping Hemorrhoids for Centuries

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Way before we were a thought in the Big Man’s plan, before the continents were separated into their own entities, before BIG PHARMA, indigenous cultures were using herbs and plants for all of their own health issues.

Whether it was for fungal infections or to calm their rumbling tummies, herbs and plants were known to be the go-to healing medicine.

Still, to this day, people have not forgotten the many wonders of what herbs and plants can do for our health.

So with almost 50% of people having to deal with the uncomfortable and annoying effects of hemorrhoids before the age of 50, why not use one of the most effective supplements for treating hemorrhoids?

Horse Chestnut has been used for thousands of years in traditional medicine to treat a wide variety of health issues including treatment for hemorrhoids.

What is Horse Chestnut?

Horse Chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) comes from a tree which is native to the Balkan Peninsula – these countries include Albania, Bulgaria, Greece, and Bulgaria. The beauty of modern farming is now these trees can be grown worldwide for the benefit of all. Horse Chestnuts native to the United States is actually referred to as “Buckeyes.”

Fun Fact: Why was it named Horse Chestnut? It was assumed horse’s used to eat the seeds and flowers off this tree to clear their chest and help them breathe. But, owner’s eventually found the seeds were actually poisonous to horses in its raw farm due to the toxic substance esculin.

Luckily, humans learned how to process the esculin out of horse chestnut seeds to enjoy its many health benefits.

The seeds, bark, leaves, and flowers of Horse Chestnut have been used in the treatment of a number of conditions for centuries.

Horse Chestnuts most common form – seed extract – has a powerful anti-inflammatory effect which has helped with joint pain, arthritis, gastrointestinal problems, leg cramps, and fever.

Today this seed extract is also used for disorders of the vessels to help build up the walls of veins, increase circulation, and swelling after surgery. Horse chestnut seed extract is widely used these days for chronic venous insufficiency which is a problem of the vessels in your legs not being able to pump blood back to your heart.

In Europe, this extract is approved for the treatment of varicose veins in the legs and hemorrhoids – a form of varicose veins occurring in the anus or rectum.

Horse Chestnut for Hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids are swollen veins around the anus or rectum due to increased pressure in the lower abdomen or rectum.

They’re truly a pain in the butt and mostly caused by chronic constipation and straining during bowel movements. Hemorrhoids can cause a small amount of rectal bleeding, and you might notice it either in the toilet or when you wipe.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The first record of Aesculus hippocastanum being used for hemorrhoids dates back to the 1800 – surely not the first time it was used, just the first time someone thought, “Hey, we should record this!” That’s well over 250 years of recorded effectiveness.

Horse Chestnut contains multiple chemical compounds called saponin and flavonoid, its most potent substance called aescin is what reduces inflammation and the swelling of blood vessels helping with rectal bleeding.

Horse Chestnut hemorrhoid treatment helps by:

  • Strengthening the walls of the veins
  • Reducing swelling of these vessels
  • Preventing any further break down of capillaries
  • Improving vessel elasticity
  • Prevent the release of enzymes which break down collagen

In a recent study Horse Chestnut has shown to help promote contraction forces in fibroblast. These cells are necessary for the wound healing process and also aid in rectal bleeding and hemorrhoids.

How to Use Horse Chestnut Extract

Horse Chestnut can be taken orally or applied topically for the use of hemorrhoids or anal fissures.

The recommended oral dose is 300 mg twice a day 12 hours apart for treating hemorrhoids. Many topical hemorrhoids creams contain horse chestnut so follow the directions for topical applications.

If you happen to run upon a Horse Chestnut tree – please remember these seeds contain esculin which is poisonous in its raw form and should not be eaten.

When esculin is removed, Horse Chestnut is well tolerated by most people and remarkably safe with rare side effects. Most manufactures remove esculin from their products so just check the bottle for safety and make sure you are buying your supplements from a reputable source.

Anyone struggling with the following health problems should not take Horse Chestnut:

  • Diabetes
  • Bleeding disorders
  • Liver disease
  • Kidney disease

Also, mothers who are pregnant or nursing should speak to their doctor before taking Horse Chestnut. Anyone who has severe hemorrhoids should also consult their doctor before any use of supplements.

Other Benefits of Supplementing with Horse Chestnut

Horse Chestnut also contains the flavonoids quercetin and kaempferol which act as powerful antioxidant to help remove free radicals in your body and combat disease.

Horse Chestnut has been successful in treating the following health issues, but not enough research has been concluded for proven effectiveness:

  • Chronic venous insufficiency
  • Enlarged prostate
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Eczema
  • Fertility in men
  • Certain cancers
  • Diaherra

Horse Chestnut has also been shown to help the effectiveness of prebiotics, a non-digestible fiber found in food, which can aid in digestion and gut health. Its chemical compound saponins and flavonoids also help eliminate methane in your gut reducing bloating and abdominal discomfort.

As Hippocrates said, “All disease begins in the gut.”

With the use of Horse Chestnut, you don’t have to suffer silently with rectal bleeding and hemorrhoids anymore. With a natural hemorrhoid treatment, you can reduce hemorrhoid flare-ups making it a thing of the past.

For Better or For Worse Alzheimer’s-Dementia

For Better or For Worse Alzheimer-Dementia

This 60 Minute Piece aired tonight For Better or For Worse may be the final episode of a decade of interviews of just one couple one of whom has the Alzheimer form of Dementia.  It is a wake up call to action for every single one of us.

Changes showing onset of the Alzheimers form of Dementia begin 10, 20 even 30 years before first symptoms appear. NOW is the time to prevent it to begin with!

I have been saying this to my family of patients for a long time now.

Once you have the onset of symptoms and without a miracle from God (which is possible), you may very likely develop Alzheimer’s/ Dementia

Do I have the answer–I wish I did.  What I do have is some ideas to help prevent it

I use Citicoline in the form of CDP Choline Cognizin. The raw materials for this product are made in Japan, the encapsulation from various companies globally.  I use JO-MAR Labs in Santa Cruz because the raw materials for this product originate from the world famous Kyowa Labs in Japan. I just don’t trust other brands.  Everyone including myself pays the same price 100 capsules 200mg-$42.20 (1-800-538-4545). Some patients take one a day others two per day.  You will not overdose on this product

The other product I suggest is Lithium Orotate either in tablet or spray (see attachment below).  This is the mineral lithium (Georgia has Lithia Springs) and not the pharmaceutical lithium used to treat schizophrenia.

I highly recommend ballroom dancing because it requires thinking–there are plenty of studios out there able to accommodate you. Playing a musical instrument also requires skill of thinking.

Years ago I had a 95+ year old patient sharp as a tack. When I asked his “secret” he said when he drives he takes a different route every time he goes somewhere; he never sits at the same spot  at the dinner table; he does not drink coffee out of the same cup each day etc. etc. He said as soon as something he does becomes a    habit/routine, he would immediately change or shake it up.  Interesting! He lived to 103

The Book Why Isn’t My Brain Working by Datis Kharrazian is definitely not the bible of brain health BUT it is a good book to read as it also discusses the  Gut Brain Axis and the Vagus Nerve.

LASTLY, I would be remiss if I did not mention the bona fide benefits of      Transcendental Meditation. The TM method has been studied  by the worlds greatest universities proving the science and scholarship behind the effect it has on the brain is nothing short of magnanimous. No other meditation compares. They provide a discount if you are referred by a professional such as myself. It it worth it?. My opinion is a resounding YES because supplements are only helpful adjuncts whereas Transcendental Meditation is the real McCoy for brain health. Almost every city large or small; local or global, has a TM Center close by. All TM centers have free open house lectures–try to go to one; feel into it; and more than likely you will want to sign up.  It stays with you until your last breath. And in the long run it is cheaper than supplements and or medications that do not work.

Attached will be 4 articles I have sent out in the past on Citicoline. The first one is a whopping 92 pages with the other three articles more reasonable. I also am adding a Lithium article as well.  I do not have an article on ballroom dancing, you will  have to figure that out for yourself.

As with anything I send out, please  by all means pass it onto others

To your health,

Endometriosis: A Disorder of Estrogen Dominance

This post is a Segway to the original Endometriosis post from the Guardian. Please read both!

Estrogen is the hormone that makes women “women,” in its support of the female organs that support human life. It initiates the development of sex characteristics at puberty by stimulating the growth of endometrial and breast tissue. Every month it stimulates the growth of the follicle which releases the egg. It supports vaginal tissues and stores fat to support a woman who might become pregnant or nursing. Other growth-related processes attributed to estrogen are preventing bone loss and maintaining collagen in the skin and connective tissues. Estrogen also aids in the synthesis of neurotransmitters, especially serotonin and dopamine, and supports the transportation of glucose across the blood brain barrier.

While estrogen contributes to fertility and a woman’s monthly cycle, it can run amok when it goes unchecked by enough progesterone, the hormone that promotes differentiation. A common presentation of unbalanced estrogen is endometriosis. Endometriosis is the presence of endometrial-like tissue outside of the uterus, primarily located on the pelvic peritoneum, ovaries and recto vaginal septum. Endometriosis has a high association with adenoymyosis, endometrial tissues growing outside of the uterine wall; and fibroids, a benign tumor of muscular tissue in the wall of the uterus.

Endometriosis and its cousins adenomyosis and uterine fibroids, often difficult to tell apart, are the reasons that many women experience pelvic pain and bleeding, and make visits to their gynecologists. While only 6-10% of women of reproductive age experience endometriosis, 50-60% of the pelvic pain experienced by teenage girls is caused by endometriosis, and endometriosis is present in 50% of women with infertility.

Endometriosis is also associated with inflammation, in the form of elevated cytokines and homocysteine. These cytokine elevations put a woman at higher risk for autoimmune diseases such as Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis, Grave’s, Hashimoto’s, and Celiac disease. Amazingly, endometriosis lesions express aromatase and synthesize their own estradiol from testosterone, creating more estrogen and inflammation, and contributing to estrogen dominance! Endometriosis is also associated with an increased risk of ovarian endometrioid and clear-cell cancers, as well as other cancers such as non-Hodgkins lymphoma and melanoma.

In short, the estrogen dominance that leads to endometriosis breeds growth in the form of more endometriosis, more estrogen production and more inflammation, and may even contribute to the growth of cancer. The conventional treatment for endometriosis includes NSAIDS, GnRH agonists (Lupron), oral contraceptives, and surgery. Because progesterone tends to be decreased in women with endometriosis, progesterone supplementation can be a more natural alternative to pharmaceuticals. Progesterone can serve as an important component in breaking the cycle of estrogen dominance as it stabilizes and slows the cell growth associated with estrogen. Many women are desperate for a solution to their pain and will gladly start with a trial of progesterone.

Consider salivary hormone testing in your patients, as the Pg/E2 ratio can play an important role in determining a progesterone-based treatment plan for women with endometriosis at any age.
