https://bit.ly/3eSRr5u


Someone recently had a question about thyroid nodules. What’s behind thyroid nodules, and what can you do about them?

What causes thyroid nodules? 

 • A selenium deficiency


Most of the selenium and iodine in the body is stored in the thyroid. The thyroid needs both of these trace minerals in the right ratios. Selenium is just as important as iodine in thyroid function.

Selenium has the ability to:

 • Get rid of free radical damage

 • Get rid of oxidation

 • Reduce antibodies


What type of selenium should you take? 

 • You need an organic selenium 

 • Either take selenomethionine or selenocysteine (not both)

Can Dairy Affect Your Hormones?
196

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about dairy products and hormones. Is dairy bad? Can dairy affect the hormones?

Well, milk is designed to feed a growing calf, and it’s loaded with different types of hormones. The two main hormones in dairy are estrogen and IGF. 

The different types of estrogen in milk as well as the IGF, are growth hormones which target the:

 • Prostate

 • Breast

 • Uterus

 • Ovary

The fattier the dairy, the more hormones it has. I’m not against dairy, but some people are already estrogen dominant or have a hormone imbalance. People with these types of issues should stay away from dairy products for a while.


Hormones in dairy (milk, cheese, yogurt) can affect the body. To minimize the damage:

 • Go for organic dairy

 • Go for grass-fed dairy

You can also consume cruciferous vegetables to give you an antiestrogenic effect. You may want to try giving up all dairy products for one week to help determine if you’re sensitive to dairy or not.

Today, I want to share a little bit about what I learned from the Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918.   This is an interesting story about an incredibly deadly flu. It’s estimated that the Spanish flu caused 50 to 100 million deaths worldwide.

Interesting things about the 1918 flu pandemic:

1. They didn’t really die from the virus itself. The majority of deaths occurred because of:


2. Many of these deaths involved people in their 20’s. Why?

Brazil Nuts May Not be the Best Source of Selenium Unless You....
123

I wanted to create a short video about Brazil nuts and selenium. Are Brazil nuts a good source of selenium?

Benefits of selenium:

 • Selenium is great for people with Hashimoto’s 

 • Selenium acts as an antioxidant 

 • Selenium helps you convert thyroid hormone T4 to the active form T3

Are Brazil nuts good? Well, the problem with Brazil nuts is that they have high amounts of phytic acid. 

Phytic acid binds minerals and blocks:

 • Selenium 

 • Zinc

 • Iron

 • Magnesium 

 • Calcium 

 • Chromium 

 • Manganese

 • Copper


How to consume Brazil nuts:

 • If you want to consume Brazil nuts, you have to soak them in water overnight before eating them. This will help get rid of the phytic acid.

 • You could also consume roasted Brazil nuts. But, the problem with roasting the nuts is that heat destroys some heat-sensitive vitamins and beneficial oils.

The Important Nutrient - Longevity Link
347

DATA: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science...

In this podcast, let’s talk about nutrients and your lifespan. How much of an influence do nutrients have on how long you live?

You are as strong as your weakest slink. There are various weaknesses within our bodies that fail and then shorten our lifespan.

Your body is constantly trying to repair DNA damage. When your body fails to repair the DNA damage, or the free radical damage is too strong, you start to age, and your body begins to breakdown. 

One study reports that DNA damage from micronutrient deficiencies may cause cancer.

Diabetic and Pregnant? WATCH THIS!
349

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about pregnancy and diabetes. If you have pre-diabetes, insulin resistance, or you’re a diabetic while pregnant, there are several things you need to know.


What is insulin resistance? — This is a condition where your body is not able to absorb insulin. Your body has to make more insulin than it needs, and that excess insulin creates a lot of problems. Your blood sugars may be normal, but you have a big problem under the surface. 


HOMA-IR is a test you can take before you get pregnant to check and see if you have insulin resistance.


Complications from having blood sugar problems while pregnant:


 • The baby is more likely to become a diabetic 

 • There is a higher risk of a stillbirth

 • The mother may have a problem with fertility

 • The baby may have stunted growth

 • The baby may have birth defects

 • The baby may have pre-eclampsia

Have to Die of Something, Might as Well Enjoy Yourself...RIGHT?
212

In this podcast, I want to talk about keto critics and the importance of nutrition. 


I recently met someone who was on the ketogenic diet and was feeling discouraged. Someone told her she should forget about keto and intermittent fasting and just enjoy herself.


But, that doesn’t make a lot of sense. Why?

 • This way of thinking assumes eating healthy is not enjoyable (people on keto are satisfied eating wonderful healthy food)

 • Pleasure foods end up being painful

 • Pleasure foods increase dopamine

 • The way people usually die nowadays is usually slow 


Don’t listen to the keto naysayers. Your longevity has everything to do with what you eat, and eating healthy can be enjoyable.

The Importance of the Intestinal Mucosal Barrier
308

In this podcast, I want to cover the importance of the intestinal mucosal barrier. 

What is the intestinal mucosal barrier? — It’s simply a barrier between the inside of your colon (the large bowel) and the colon cells. 

The large bowel is all about fermenting fiber. Most of your friendly bacteria should exist in the large bowel.


Mucosal barrier functions: 

1. First line of defense 

2. Antibacterial 

3. Place to ferment fiber

4. Selective absorption 

5. Lubrication 


Microbes eat fiber and turn into small-chain fatty acids (butyrate). 


Benefits of butyrate:

 • Feeds colonocytes

 • It’s an anti-inflammatory 

 • Improves insulin resistance

 • It’s anti-cancer

 • It has satiety properties 

 • It helps maintain the thickness of the mucosal layer

What is Hormesis?
289

In this podcast, I want to answer a few questions about hormesis. What does hormesis mean, and how does hormesis work? 

What is hormesis? — Hormesis is a condition where you’re adding some stress or some toxicity in a small amount, and it’s very beneficial, compared to a larger amount where it becomes toxic. 


Hormesis examples:

 • Exercise can be very beneficial and can make you fit over time. However, if you’re 50 or 60 years old and you haven’t been working out, and you do Crossfit for two hours, you’re going to have a toxic effect from that. 

 • Fasting is very beneficial in a certain amount. But, if you fast for too long, you could end up having a toxic effect. 

• Phytonutrients are very beneficial in a small amount. However, if you consume a concentrated amount of foods with phytonutrients, it can have a toxic effect.

• Very small amounts of alcohol may be beneficial. But, too much alcohol can be toxic.

• A small amount of UV light is great, too much is bad.

Are You Protein Deficient?
717

Amino Acids: https://shop.drberg.com/keto-essentia...

In this podcast, we’re going to cover what you need to know about a protein deficiency. I want to fill you in on what causes protein deficiency, the different signs of protein deficiency, and what you can do if you have a protein deficiency. 

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. The purpose of consuming protein is to get amino acids.

When you consume protein-rich foods, you may think that protein is going right in the body and providing raw material as amino acids. However, different types of proteins (eggs, meat, soy) are each absorbed differently.

A protein deficiency is not always due to not eating enough protein.

A great natural remedy for a protein deficiency is an interesting product that is a combination of 8 amino acids.

Is it Possible to Gain Weight on Fruits and Vegetables?
316

SIBO: https://bit.ly/2YUlfJp

Vegetables: https://bit.ly/3ipvBZl, https://bit.ly/3eSK26c


In this podcast, I want to answer the question, “is it possible to gain weight on fruits and vegetables?”

When talking about fruits and vegetables, and if it will cause weight gain, it really depends on the amount and frequency you’re consuming them. Overall, you can potentially gain weight by eating fruit, but not vegetables.


Vegetables and weight gain:

 • It’s unlikely that you’re going to gain weight on vegetables. Of course, you will gain weight if you consume certain vegetables like potatoes.

• For example, 7 cups of a salad with other mixed vegetables would only give you 3.8 net carbs (extremely low).

• You may get bloating or fluid retention from consuming vegetables which can cause weight gain but not fat gain.

My Opinion on Bone Broth
214

Kettle & Fire: https://www.kettleandfire.com/


Today, I want to share with you my opinion on bone broth. 

Is bone broth healthy? In short, yes. 

People eat a lot of muscle from the animal, which contains high amounts of methionine. But, when you consume healthy bone broth, you’re getting glycine in a different profile of amino acids. I also recommend consuming some organ meats like liver. 

The benefits of bone broth mainly come from glycine, which can help with:

 • Sleep 

 • Blood sugars

 • Neurotransmitters

Other benefits of bone broth relate to gut health and joint support.

A convenient option is to buy a pre-made bone broth. One of my favorites is from a company called Kettle & Fire. Or, you can follow this easy bone broth recipe below.

Amazing Skull Massage for a Deep Restful Sleep
327

In this podcast, I want to share with you a really simple massage technique. This skull massage is unlike anything you’ve probably seen on the internet before, and I’m going to show you how to do it step-by-step. 


This is a skull massage for deep relaxation that will help a person get restful sleep. This relaxing head massage helps melt away stress and promotes sleep by working the sagittal suture. 


 • You can’t do this massage to yourself because you need to be fully relaxed. 

 • You shouldn’t do this massage to someone that has been hit on top of the head because you don’t want to press an old injury.


How to skull massage:

 • Place your palm lightly on the person’s forehead to stabilize their head.

 • Looking at the top of the head, with slight pressure, press your thumb at the bottom of the sagittal suture.

 • Using traction, slowly work your way forward up the head continuing to press your thumb along the sagittal suture very carefully.

How to Get Your Spouse On Board with Keto (Ketogenic Diet)
218

Today, I want to talk about the ketogenic diet and how to get your spouse on keto.

There are a lot of different viewpoints when it comes to the keto diet. So, maybe you want to do healthy keto, but your spouse is rejecting the idea. What do you do?

 • Find out what they want to handle. Is it weight loss, inflammation, more energy, or more focus? The ketogenic diet can give them all of that, and that’s what you should focus on.

 • Keep it easy for them to implement and have some success. When it comes to keto for beginners, start with dirty keto and gradually get into healthy keto and intermittent fasting. What’s most important is that they are on a low carb high-fat diet with moderate protein.

Tomato vs. Carrot: Which is Better on Keto?
336

Today, we’re going to talk about vegetables on keto. Specifically, the tomato on keto versus the carrot on keto. Are these the best vegetables on keto to have? Which one is better to have on the ketogenic diet?


I want to show you a couple of things about the total carb, the net carb, the fiber, and the sugar in keto vegetables. With healthy keto, we want low carbs and low sugar. But, you are allowed on healthy keto to have between 20 and 50 grams of carbohydrates. With this, I’m recommending counting the net carb and not the total carb.


1 cup of tomatoes:

4.8 grams — Carbs

1.5 grams — Fiber

3.3 grams — Net Carbs

3 grams —Sugar


1 cup of carrots:

11 grams — Carbs

3 grams — Fiber

8 grams — Net carbs 

5 grams — Sugar

Wonderful Neck Stretch for Whole Body Relaxation
727

Today, I want to show you a wonderful neck stretch for whole-body relaxation. I’m going to go over this neck stretch for stress relief step-by-step. 

We’re going to be working with the skull and first vertebra. There is also a lot of ligaments involved in this.

Ligaments go from bone to bone. So, whether you had a tailbone injury or just gravity stress, we want to use this stretch to increase the space between the skull and the first vertebra. 

This relaxing stretch will provide a tremendous amount of relief, and will help the person:

 • Sleep better 

 • Breath better

 • Feel taller

 • Have more neck flexibility 

 • Have less stress

Two Trace Minerals Linked to Living to 100 Years Old
139

I wanted to create a short podcast on trace minerals and the two trace minerals slinked to living to be one hundred years old.

According to an interesting study on Chinese people who lived to be one hundred years old, the two best trace minerals for longevity seem to be zinc and copper.

Copper and zinc make up the enzyme SOD (superoxide dismutase). This enzyme is involved in longevity. You don’t need them in large quantities, but without them, your health will suffer.

The Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
262

Today let’s talk about hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is one of the most incredible therapies. Oxygen therapy is very credible and has been thoroughly researched. 

What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy? When you breathe air, you’re only getting 21% actual oxygen. Oxygen therapy raises the oxygen to nearly 100%. 

You’re put in a pressurized closed in environment so that the oxygen not only goes into your lungs but right into your tissues. It targets hypoxic areas. Basically, it drives a high amount of concentrated oxygen into injured tissues. It also has the capacity to stimulate stem cells by 800%. 

During hyperbaric therapy, you’re in the hyperbaric chamber for 1-2 hours for maybe 3 times a week for several weeks.

The Top Vitamin K2 Foods
148

In this podcast, we’re going to cover what you need to know about vitamin K2 and the top vitamin K2 foods. Vitamin K1 is all about stopping bleeding. 

Vitamin K2 is all about making sure calcium doesn’t build up in the soft tissues like the coronary arteries and joints. One of the benefits of vitamin K2 is that it takes calcium and pushes it into the bones, making them stronger. 


How much vitamin K2 should you take?

For a maintenance dose — 100 mcg 

For a therapeutic dose — Up to 400 mcg


I recommend taking D3 with K2. D3 dosage — 10,000 IU - 40,000 IU

Foods high in vitamin K2:   • Natto  • Goose Liver  • Duck Liver  • Chicken Liver  • Beef Liver (pate)  • Egg Yolk   • Grass-Fed Beef  • Emu Oil   • Hard/Soft Cheese  • Pepperoni  • Salami  • Pork Sausage  • Grass-Fed Dairy  • Sauerkraut

Is it Okay to Crack Your Knuckles?
82

Today we’re going to talk about knuckle cracking. Is it okay to crack your knuckles? Does cracking your knuckles cause arthritis?

Is knuckle cracking bad? No, not really. It may irritate the people around you, but knuckle popping won’t cause arthritis.

There are certain ways that are better than others when it comes to cracking your knuckles, and I’m going to show you how to pop your knuckles correctly in this video. 

The sound that’s made from knuckle cracking is caused by stretching the capsule around the joint that’s filled with fluid and gas is coming out of the liquid making a popping sound.

Should I Do Cardio to Lose Weight?
338

Today, I want to talk to you about exercise. Should you do cardio for weight loss? Exercise only contributes 15% of your results with weight loss. The majority of your results will come from diet.


There are basically two types of exercise for weight loss:

 • Aerobic — Low Intensity (with oxygen)

 • Anaerobic — High intensity (without oxygen)


Aerobic exercise:

An example would be walking.

 • Fat burning effects occur after 25 minutes 

 • Low-stress type of exercise 


Anaerobic exercise:

An example would be HIIT

 • You’re working out 20-40 minutes

 • Fat burning effects occur 24-48 hours after the workout during sleep


Some barriers you may run into:   

• What you eat   • Sleep (you need sleep)  • Quantity of exercise   • Intensity (needs to be adjusted to your recovery)  • Frequency   • Recovery (the benefit of exercise occurs in the recovery phase)  • Stress

Can Calorie Restriction Slow Aging?
353

Today, we’re going to talk about calorie restriction. Can calorie restriction slow aging?

You may have heard before that counting calories can have anti-aging effects. But, that conflicts with all of the people who have tried a low-calorie diet in the past. It has been proven that the more you diet and lower your calories, the more you end up gaining the weight back. It also destroys your metabolism over time.

If you’re doing a low-calorie diet with high carbs, you’re going to keep your blood sugars going up and down. If you do a low-calorie diet with low fat, you’re going to be hungry, and it’s not sustainable. 

The benefit of calorie restriction is epigenetics. The two epigenetic triggers for the benefits of calorie restriction are lowering glucose and lowering insulin. The benefits aren’t coming from restricting calories. The benefits are coming from restricting glucose and insulin.

The other problem with a low-calorie diet is that people lower their nutrients. This can create nutrient deficiencies which can lead to all kinds of problems.

Stress Depletes These Nutrients
287

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about how stress can deplete certain nutrients. Most people think that a lack of eating certain foods causes nutrient deficiencies. While this is one cause, it’s not the only cause. 


A few causes of nutritional deficiencies:

 • Sugar 

 • Caffeine 

 • Refined grains 

 • Diet low in nutrients 

 • Lack of bile

 • Lack of microbiome 

 • Lack of stomach acid 

 • Anti-nutrients 


Stress is also a major factor that can potentially cause vitamin deficiencies, not to mention many other types of health problems. 

When talking about stress in the body, we’re really talking about the hormone called cortisol. Chronic high levels of cortisol could cause deficiencies in certain nutrients, such as:   • Vitamin B1  • Vitamin D  • Zinc  • Potassium   • Sodium

Why Are You Squashing Your Immune System?
316

A lot of people suppress immune symptoms right away, but is this always the best first action?

Today we're going to talk about whether or not it's a good or bad idea to suppress the infection cycle. 

Let's say you're healthy, relatively young, you don't have pre-existing health problems, but you start having a fever, muscle aches, flu-like symptoms, a runny nose, and cough. Should you automatically start taking medications and antibiotics to suppress the symptoms, or not? 

When a virus first invades the body, its goal is to get inside of the cell. When it's in the cell, it releases its RNA or DNA into your cellular machinery. Once it gets into your cellular machinery, it starts to take over the copy machine so it can mass produce. When it does that, your body doesn't have access to that copy machine. Now, as the blueprints are copied, they're sent to other machinery to reproduce the actual cell. When the virus is replicated, it can be released through the cell.

Best Natural Pink Eye (Conjunctivitis) Remedy
237

ATTENTION: Also Colloidal Silver is another awesome remedy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AiUJ4...

If you think you might be getting conjunctivitis, you may want to try this pink eye remedy as soon as possible.

Today we’re going to talk about pink eye (conjunctivitis) and the best pink eye remedy. 

Conjunctivitis, better known as pink eye, could be viral or bacterial. Bacterial cases of pink eye tend to be higher in young children, but it could be viral as well. In this video, we’re going to focus on the potential viral cause of pink eye. 

Symptoms of conjunctivitis (pink eye):   • Itchy eyes  • Watery eyes   • Red eyes  • Swollen eyelids  • Burning eyes  • Light sensitivity

Much of the time, what we’re dealing with in this situation is a virus called the adenovirus. This is actually the same virus that’s behind the common cold. There are 50 different strains of this virus, and there are really no medical treatments to cure it.

Why Might LDL Cholesterol Go Up on Keto?
399

Today we're going to talk about LDL and keto. I'm going to explain why your LDL or total cholesterol would go up when's starting the keto diet. 

For most people, when starting the ketogenic diet, their LDL will go down and not up. If it does go up, it's not as common, but I don't believe it's a problem. 

LDL is not cholesterol. It's low-density lipoprotein. LDL acts like a carrier boat that travels the cholesterol through the blood. LDL is not bad. LDL takes the cholesterol from the liver and puts it into the tissues. HDL takes the cholesterol from the tissues and puts it into the liver. 

The body needs cholesterol for hormones and cellular membranes. Your body makes a lot of cholesterol, and you also get cholesterol from the diet. Typically, when a person consumes more fat in their diet, the body makes less cholesterol.

Sleep Deprivation and Your Immune System
152

Today we’re going to talk about sleep and how sleep deprivation can affect your immune system. Your immune system is highly influenced by your sleep cycles. If you’re not sleeping, your immune system is not going to work as it should. 

When you sleep, you stimulate growth hormone. Growth hormone is intimately involved with proteins, and your entire immune system is made out of proteins. 

Sleep deprivation will cause you to have higher levels of cortisol and adrenaline. Both of these, if spiked chronically, will suppress the immune system.

The rhythm of sleep is called circadian waves. The strength of your macrophages is highly dependent on your sleep cycles. These basically eat up harmful microbes and protect you against invaders. 

If your body can’t remember certain pathogens or fight infection, then you’re going to be more susceptible to getting sick.

Fatigued on Keto and When Fasting?
392

If you’re fatigued on keto and when fasting, here’s what you can do.

EMF:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfYbc...

Today we’re going to talk about why you might be tired on keto and while doing intermittent fasting. This program is supposed to give you energy, so why are you fatigued? 

Well, you’re working on getting into a state of ketosis. So, you’re trying to burn fat instead of sugar. There is a lot of energy in fat cells. The fat will turn into ketones, and ketones, theoretically, have more energy than glucose. 

It normally takes about 3 days to convert from sugar fuel to fat fuel. Once you’re doing keto and intermittent fasting for a few weeks, then you’re really getting into some fat burning, and your energy should increase.

Why Does Our Thymus Shrink to Nothing As We Age?
401

DATA:  https://www.pnas.org/content/115/8/1883

Why does your thymus gland shrink as you age? Knowing this could save your immune system.

In this podcast, I want to talk about the thymus gland and why it shrinks down as you get older. The thymus is a gland located beneath your breastbone, right on top of the heart. It is the training center for your immune cells—specifically for T-cells.

When you’re an infant, your thymus gland is very large. As it’s exposed to pathogens, it becomes smaller and smaller. By the time you’re 75-years-old, it is virtually replaced by fat. This is known as thymic involution or thymic atrophy. As the thymus shrinks, your risk of infection, cancer, and autoimmune disease increases.

Soap or Alcohol: Which is the Better Antiviral?
157

Let’s look at soap vs. alcohol. Which is a more effective antiviral, and why?


In this short podcast, we’re going to talk about soap vs. alcohol, which is better as an antiviral?


Alcohol (60%):

Alcohol can help inactivate many different microbes, including viruses. But, I believe you should really only use alcohol gel if you don’t have soap available because soap is more effective.


Soap:

A virus has a fat layer as its envelope. Soap is a detergent. It’s half fat and half alkaline salt. Soap is an interesting combination of fat-soluble and water-soluble. It can break down the fat layer of the virus. Not only can it destroy the virus, but it can also separate it from your hands. Alcohol can’t release the virus from your hands.

Is 10,000 IUs of Vitamin D3 Safe to Take?
381

How much is too much vitamin D3? Find out.

Today we’re going to talk about how long to take vitamin D and vitamin D dosage. There seems to be a lot of confusion around vitamin D3 that I want to help clear up. Most people take 600 IUs to 2,000 IUs of vitamin D3, and they think that’s enough. But is it? 

About 75% of the population is deficient in vitamin D. I believe vitamin D is the most important fat-soluble vitamin—especially for the immune system.

Autoimmune Conditions May Be Viral: Molecular Mimicry
359

Today we’re going to talk about autoimmune diseases and how an autoimmune disease could be related to a virus. 


It’s been found that the microbe (a virus) and the host cell (your own cell) many times have similar codes in their genetics. Over time, they can actually cross-react. In other words, you could develop antibodies for this virus that also attack parts of your own tissues. I think this could be a strategy that the microbes have developed to try to go underneath the radar and trick the body into thinking it’s a part of the body.


In order for cross-reactivity to happen, I think you also have to have some chemical involved or stress trigger involved. It seems there would need to be a lot of factors that would need to align, but if they did, you could potentially develop antibodies to your own tissue. 


What could you do?

1. Vitamin D (high doses)

2. Purified bile salts 

3. Oregano oil and colloidal silver

Why Use MCT Oil in Your Coffee?
259

SAVE 50% OFF DR. BERG'S MCT OIL: https://shop.drberg.com/mct-oil?utm_source=Podcast&utm_medium=Post&utm_campaign=Episode


Find out why it may be beneficial to use MCT oil in your coffee—especially if you’re new to keto and intermittent fasting.

You may have heard of something called bulletproof coffee. Bulletproof coffee is one 8oz-12oz cup of coffee mixed with 1-2 tbsp of butter and 1-2 tbsp of MCT oil. 

There can be a lot of benefits of consuming this, especially when you’re first starting out on keto and intermittent fasting because it may help you fast for longer. 

MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides. These are special fats usually made from coconut oil that turns into ketones pretty fast. This helps you potentially generate ketones as fuel without really changing your diet.

Are You Wearing Your Mask Too Long?

Today let’s talk about the chronic wearing of a mask. I understand wearing a mask in very busy areas—especially if someone is coughing nearby. But, I’ve seen people wearing masks when they’re in there car alone or when they’re outside with hardly anyone around. Is this good or bad?

Why Being Fat Weakens Your Immune System
379

Today we’re going to talk about the relationship between your fat and your immune system. What you really need to know is that obesity can weaken the immune system. DATA: https://www.cell.com/immunity/pdfExte...


There are two main types of fat:

1. Superficial fat 

This is the fat around the body, which is right below your skin. With superficial fat, you’re going to have more accumulation of B cells, which make antibodies. You’re also going to have more T cells, which are also immune cells. 


2. Visceral fat

This is the fat in your midsection that’s spilling off from a fatty liver. In this case, the fat goes around and sometimes even inside of the organs. With visceral fat, you have more natural killer cells and killer T cells.

The Benefits of Salt for the Immune System
381

Today we’re going to talk about the potential benefits of salt for the immune system. It all has to do with a certain chemical called hypochlorite, which is the chemical name for bleach. Two of your immune cells actually make bleach to kill microbes. The body makes bleach from chloride—as in sodium chloride. It comes from salt.

How to STOP Prediabetes Going Into Diabetes
602

Today we’re going to talk about how to help stop a person from going from a prediabetic state to a diabetic state. This is a very important concept. 


The difference between prediabetes and diabetes has to do with your blood sugars. 

 • With prediabetes, your blood sugars are around 100-125, with an A1C of 5.7-6.4%. 

 • With diabetes, your blood sugars are 126 and greater, with an A1C of 6.5% or greater. 


When we’re talking about diabetes type 2, we’re talking about the elevation of sugar in your blood. A normal blood sugar level should be about 80. This is equal to about 1 tsp of sugar in all of your blood. Your body can make this sugar itself. You don’t need to consume any sugar. The average person consumes about 31 tsp of sugar every day (including carbs).


Insulin acts as a filter that keeps excess sugar out of the blood. The body does not want high amounts of sugar in the blood. Your body considers excess sugar to be very dangerous.

2. Popcorn—very high on the glycemic index

3. Applesauce—very high on the glycemic index

4. Energy bar—a granola bar could have 19g of net carbs 

5. Juice—very high on the glycemic index

6. Crackers and peanut butter—can be very high on the glycemic index

7. Apples—on average contain around 19g of sugar

Keto Rash is a Bile Deficiency
327

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about keto rash. This is an updated video on the topic because I wanted to give you a little bit more of an understanding of what really causes keto rash.

When you go on a keto diet, you make several changes. You typically wouldn’t make changes to the amount of protein you eat, but you would make changes to the amount of carbs and fats you eat.

It may be the increase in dietary fat that’s causing the keto rash because your body needs time to adjust to the amount of fat you’re consuming. If you’re taking in a lot of fat, but you don’t have the ability to digest it, that’s when there can be a problem.

You won’t find studies on this. It’s a technique I came up with and used in my clinic from being in practice for 29 years. You can use a device and do this technique yourself, or you can get someone else to help you. 

1. Rate your condition on a scale from 1-10 (10 being very severe) 2. Locate the problem and put your finger on it 3. Apply pressure on the exact opposite side (on the back of the neck) for 1-2 minutes—rate your condition again and adjust the technique  4. Do this 2-3 times per day

Best Remedy for HPV (Human Papillomavirus)
328

What is the best remedy for HPV? Find out.

Today we’re going to talk about the best natural remedy for HPV (human papillomavirus). HPV is one of the most common STIs (sexually transmitted infections). 90% of people who have HPV don’t have any symptoms. It’s not necessarily a disease—it’s an infection that could potentially turn into a disease.

This virus goes into the cells, and it kills or damages a lot of them. The cells now develop a different form of metabolism where they will start fermenting glucose. They basically flip over from a healthy cell to a cancer cell. One unique thing about cancer cells is that they don’t have a limit to how long they can live.

Is Your Keto Ice Cream Keto-Friendly?
400

Today I want to evaluate the "so-called" keto-friendly Ice creams. You're going to be exposed to a lot of different products, and sometimes it's hard to know if they're actually healthy.   For something to be keto, it needs to be low-carb. But, even that is a loose term with no legal definition.   Healthy keto is a healthy version of the ketogenic diet. This includes nutrient-dense foods that have higher-quality ingredients.

Most of these brands use a sugar alcohol called erythritol. What's good about erythritol is that it's zero on the glycemic index. What's bad about it is that unless it's non-GMO, it could be made from GMO ingredients. None of the major brands that advertise keto ice cream stated if it was non-GMO.

Salmon vs Cod: Which is Healthier?
200

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about salmon vs. cod and which is healthier. One thing to make a note of is that if you choose salmon or cod, make sure it’s wild-caught instead of farm-raised. It’s been thought that you should consume more cod because consuming fatty fish will clog your arteries. But, I don’t believe that’s true at all.


Both of these types of fish have a small amount of mercury. But you shouldn’t need to be concerned, because they also have a good amount of selenium. Selenium is used by the body to counter the toxic effect of mercury.


In my opinion, salmon is a healthier choice. I also think that when you consume fish, it may be best to leave the skin on it. There’s a lot of benefits from the skin and the fat that’s just underneath the skin.

Is Your Urine Smelling Like Burnt Popcorn?
123

I recently had a question from someone wondering why their urine smells like burnt popcorn. Let’s cover why this could happen. 


A strong urine odor that’s similar to burnt popcorn could mean that you’re making a lot of ketones. You’re not making too many to put you in ketoacidosis. But, you’re making a high amount, which is also concentrated. 


This typically happens after a person has been fasting for 16-20 hours. You may especially have smelly urine when you first wake up in the morning because your urine is more concentrated. 


If your urine smells like popcorn, this is not necessarily a bad thing. It could just mean that you’re in some pretty hard-core ketosis. It means that what you’re doing is working. You can even test your urine or blood to really see this. 


What you can do:

1. Adjust your protein (you may be consuming too much protein) 

2. Adjust your fluids (consume more fluids)

Iodine and Your Immune System
395

DATA: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/arti...


Today we’re going to talk about iodine and immune system health. I’ve talked a lot about important nutrients like zinc, vitamin D, and vitamin C in relation to the immune system. But I haven’t talked about iodine. Iodine has a unique influence on the immune system. 

You need about 150 mcg of iodine per day. Many people, around 2 billion, are deficient in iodine. Sea kelp seems to be the best source of iodine, but there are other great iodine sources as well. 

The best iodine-rich foods are:

 • Sea kelp

 • Shellfish

 • Fish 

 • Eggs

 • Dairy

The Best Vegetable for Gastritis is...
471

Dr. Berg's Liquid Probiotic: https://shop.drberg.com/friendly-bacteria-probiotic?utm_source=Podcast&utm_medium=Post&utm_campaign=Daily%20Post


Today we’re going to talk about the best vegetable for gastritis. I believe the best vegetable for gastritis is cabbage. Gastritis is essentially an inflamed stomach. This is a major problem. It could take years for your stomach to become inflamed. Typically this is a chronic problem after taking Aspirin for many years, taking steroids, the overuse of antacids, or a bad diet. The main symptom of gastritis is upper central abdominal pain. There may also be bloating. 

A few gastritis triggers: 

 • Chronic stress 

 • Not enough sleep

 • Sugar and refined carbs

 • Too much coffee

 • H. Pylori (destroys the mucus lining, lowers stomach acid, lowers intrinsic factor)

Went Back on Keto But Now NO Results
233

Did keto stop working for you? Here’s what you need to know. I recently spoke with a woman who was telling me she was on keto and intermittent fasting, and it worked well for her. But, then, she stopped, and later when she started the program again, it didn’t work. Why would this happen? 


The best way to mess up your metabolism is to go on and off of the program over and over. This confuses your metabolism. Your metabolism is living and dynamic, and it adapts to the foods you eat. When you’re not consistent with keto and intermittent fasting, this can cause problems. 


What you could do:

1. Healthy keto

 • Keep the protein at a moderate amount (3-8oz.).

 • The slower the metabolism, the lower you need to reduce your carbs. You may need to bring it down to 10g per day. 

 • Lower the fat to no less than 75g. 

2. Fast longer 

3. Sleep 

4. Exercise 

5. Reduce stress

Cancer Spreads into Inflammation
337

DATA: https://care.diabetesjournals.org/con...


Today we’re going to talk about the spreading of cancer. What really kills most people with cancer is the migration of cancer. But, is this migration random, or does it follow a pattern?

Credible data suggests that cancer cells were created or derived from macrophages. Macrophages are a part of the innate immune system. Macrophages actually eat debris, viruses, bacteria, and much more. Many cancer cells even behave like macrophages. They actually eat T cells, red blood cells, and platelets. 

Macrophages migrate to tissues that need healing—areas of inflammation. A lot of different cancers will migrate to the liver, lungs, and bone. These areas can be prone to inflammation. Macrophages come from monocytes, which come from bone marrow.

Knee Pain, Pseudo-gout and Vitamin K2
301

Do you have knee pain? Here’s what you need to know. In this podcast, we’re going to talk about pseudogout, knee pain, and vitamin K2. If you have knee pain, it could be a pseudogout situation.  

Gout is a buildup of uric acid. This happens because the kidney is not able to get rid of uric acid. When this builds up, it can cause a lot of problems, including kidney stones and gout. One of the best ways to get rid of gout is to take potassium citrate, which acidifies your urine.

You also want to avoid foods that turn into uric acid, including: • Beer • Organ meats • Veal • Turkey • Sardines • Fructose

While on a keto and intermittent fasting plan, you may have higher levels of uric acid. Potassium citrate is effective at combating this. 

Pseudogout is different from gout—it’s actually a build-up of calcium pyrophosphate crystals (CPPD). This type of gout can also be very, very painful. It primarily targets the knees and the wrists.

Why You Never Should Eat Raw Chicken
204

Many people consume raw fish (sushi) or raw beef, but not chicken. Why is that? Chicken and turkey contain certain bacteria that could give you food poisoning. This bacteria is called campylobacter bacteria. 75% of all grocery store chick tested positive for this bacteria. This is a bacteria that commonly known to live in the gut of chickens, turkeys, and other birds. 

If you consume enough of this bacteria, you can potentially experience:

• Severe diarrhea

• Flu symptoms

• Fever

• Abdominal pain

• Cramping 

• Guillain Barre syndrome

Antibiotics usually do not work—you can only manage the symptoms and let your immune system fight the infections. You don’t need to wash the chicken. If you do wash the chicken, make sure you clean your hands thoroughly, along with anything you touched with contaminated hands and anything the chicken came in contact with. Cross-contamination can lead to food poisoning.

What's More Preventive for COVID-19: Fixing the Diet or Nutrients?
229

When it comes to COVID-19, should you focus on fixing your diet or getting more nutrients as a preventive action? Is fixing the diet or getting certain nutrients a better preventative for COVID-19? Find out. 


By fixing the diet, I'm talking about:

1. Doing a low carb diet (keto diet)

2. Doing intermittent fasting 


The nutrients:

1. Zinc 

2. Vitamin D

3. Vitamin C 


 COVID-19 risk factors:

 • High blood pressure

 • Obesity 

 • Diabetes 

 • Cardiovascular disease 


The COVID-19 risk factors above are metabolic problems. Metabolic problems have something in common: insulin resistance. Metabolic problems weaken the immune system. So, a weak immune system is a symptom of metabolic problems, and metabolic problems can be a symptom of insulin resistance.

COVID -19: The Real Problem

Today we're going to talk about COVID-19 and the real problem regarding COVID-19. It can be very difficult to make sense of this very complex problem unless you start putting pieces of the data into different categories, such as healthy people and unhealthy people. When talking about unhealthy people, I mean those people who have pre-existing health problems, such as metabolic syndrome. 


A few examples of metabolic syndrome are:

 • High blood pressure 

 • Cardiovascular disease

 • High cholesterol 

 • Diabetes

 • Obesity 

 • Insulin resistance 


I created two categories: healthy people and unhealthy people. I put the infection fatality rates underneath each category. I also added additional data from a study out of Santa Clara, which revealed there could have been more people that were infected with the coronavirus.

How to Correct Your Constipation
411

Today we’re going to talk about how to get rid of constipation. Specifically, we’re going to talk about what to do if you have constipation after starting the ketogenic diet. 


For people who have had chronic constipation before starting the keto diet, you may need a deeper evaluation by your doctor. A natural laxative may also be a helpful constipation remedy. 


Here’s what you could consider if you started having constipation after starting keto:

1. Adjust your vegetables 

A. Try increasing or decreasing the number of vegetables you consume. 

B. Try different types of vegetables. 

C. Switch to fermented vegetables or consume some of your vegetables raw, and some of them steamed. 


2. Add bile salts 

3. Add potassium 

4. Add a probiotic 

5. Add an herbal laxative 

6. Add vitamin B1

*MCT oil may also help

How Long Does Magnesium Stay in the Body?
385

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about magnesium and how long it stays in your body. Certain minerals go through the body quickly, while other minerals don’t. 


For example, minerals like sodium, iron, and calcium tend to be retained in the body. But, magnesium, potassium, and zinc are not held in the body for very long. 


What determines the retention or recycling is how healthy the kidneys are. If your kidneys are very healthy, you may only lose a very small amount. But, if your kidneys are unhealthy, you could lose a lot more. There is a huge gap when it comes to how much magnesium your body will hold versus excrete. 


The kidneys have the ability to get rid of excess magnesium, so it’s rarely toxic to the body. But, the body will get rid of .5-70% of magnesium within a 24 hour period. It’s very important to get plenty of magnesium. 


The average American only consumes 200-300mg of magnesium per day. I believe a person should consume more like 500-600mg per day. Certain diseases, like diabetes, can cause the need for magnesium to go way up. This is because you likely aren’t retaining magnesium if you have blood sugar problems. Drinking a lot of alcohol can also severely decrease the ability to hold magnesium. 


The number one symptom of a magnesium deficiency is fatigue. This is because the mitochondria (the energy factories of your cells) need magnesium to create the energy currency of the body. Palpitations and muscle weakness are a few more symptoms. If you crave chocolate, you may have a magnesium deficiency. 


What causes a magnesium deficiency? 

1. Empty calories (refined foods)

2. Phytates (oat bran, wheat, legumes) 

3. Kidney damage 

4. Not consuming enough foods with chlorophyll (vegetables)

How Sugar Affects Your Immune System
285

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about how sugar affects the body—specifically the immune system. High blood sugar (hyperglycemia) has a huge effect on suppressing the immune system. Hyperglycemia is even one of the big factors involved in the COVID situation that could increase the risk of mortality. 


How sugar affects immunity:


1. Inhibited chemotaxis 

Chemotaxis is the movement of white blood cells through the body towards where they need to do their work. 


2. Impaired phagocytosis  

Phagocytosis is the mechanism where certain white blood cells will ultimately kill pathogens.


3. Inhibited complement cascade 

Complement cascade is a series of events that can occur that will cause the bacterial membrane to burst. It helps kill bacteria.


4. Acidosis—inhibits immunity 

The pH will go down, which can inhibit immunity. 


5. Slows white blood cells moving through tissues 

White blood cells have the ability to go through the tissues, the lymphatic system, organs, and blood vessels. Inhibiting this movement can have a negative effect on the immune system. 


6. Blood flow diminished 

High blood sugar could destroy the vascular system. This can cause less oxygen throughout the body. With that, you could have an increase in pathogens that can live in that environment. 


7. Less innate immunity 

This is a part of the immune system that’s like a wall. Hyperglycemia can destroy the protective barriers.

COVID-19 and False Negative Testing
209

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about COVID-19 and false negative testing. There was recently a study published by John-Hopkins, and there seem to many concerns with the data. 


When you have a false negative when testing for COVID-19, this means that the test says you do not have the coronavirus when you are actually infected. 


Here are the chances of the coronavirus being detected on a COVID-19 test:

Day 1: 0%

Day 4: 33%

Day 5: 62% (First symptoms occur around day 5)

Day 8: 80%

Day 21: 34%


During day 5-8, you will have the highest chance of an accurate test. However, most people do not get tested until they’ve started having more severe symptoms, which is between day 10 and day 21. This means the accuracy of these tests will be low when most people are tested.

The Huge Vitamin D Mistake with RDAs
278

In this podcast, I want to talk about vitamin D and RDAs. You may have seen that the news is now bashing vitamin D. They are saying that you shouldn’t take too much because it’s toxic—it’s now considered dangerous when taking more than 600 IUs. Where is this coming from? 


There was recently a study published by the national academy of medicine (NAM). After many years of compiling research, they happened to make a big error—by a factor of ten. Instead of recommending 600 IUs, they should have been recommending 8895 IUs. 


RDAs are the recommended daily allowances of nutrients that are considered to be sufficient for over 97.5% of healthy people to prevent a deficiency. Keep in mind that RDAs do not consider unhealthy people. 


Today, the data is still wrong and unchanged, which means many people are getting a false recommendation of 600 IUs/day. 


This recommendation is crazy—we are facing a massive vitamin D deficiency pandemic right now. Most people are deficient in vitamin D, resulting in problems with…

• Immune system health

• Bone health

• Inflammation

• Increased risk of autoimmune diseases

and much more. 


When you see information like this, make sure you search out who is providing this information. It’s important to check for errors, quality, and conflicts of interest. 


The best source of vitamin D is not a particular food—it’s the sunlight. Sunlight stimulates the body’s natural ability to create vitamin D. 


Many things can affect how much vitamin D you should consume:

• Excessive weight or obesity

• Age

• Skin color/melanin 

• Infection

• Health conditions

Arrhythmias Are Excess Calcium
444

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about heart arrhythmias and how they relate to excessive amounts of calcium in your cells. 


Arrhythmias are a problem with the rhythm of your heart. This could be a minor palpitation or a major atrial fibrillation—and anything else that involves an irregular heart rhythm. 


The most common cause of arrhythmias is excess calcium stuck in your cells—this is why many arrhythmia medications are calcium channel blockers. 


Calcium is one of many electrolytes that supports the function of your heart: 

• Sodium controls the “spark”

• Calcium controls the “squeeze

• Magnesium controls the “relaxation”


There are many cannon triggers for heart palpitations:

1. Caffeine 

2. Alcohol

3. Sugar

4. Stress (cortisol)

5. Electrolytes (magnesium) 

6. Low vitamin D

7. Chocolate

8. Drugs


Each of these will affect calcium physiology—which can cause palpitations. 


You can control how much calcium is in your cells with magnesium. Any imbalance of electrolytes can have a short-circuiting effect, which throws off the systems in your body and causes palpitations. 


Low magnesium could be a result of insulin resistance or consuming too many foods high in sugar and carbs. It could also be a result of not consuming enough magnesium in your diet. Most magnesium comes from leafy greens. 


Other causes of high calcium in the cells are:

• K2 imbalance

• Vitamin D imbalance

• Potassium imbalance 


Take a look at your diet and lifestyle habits and see if any of the things I mentioned above could be triggering heart arrhythmia. It may take some trial and error to figure out a solution.

The Benefits of Breastfeeding for the Immune System
322

Today we’re going to talk about the importance of breastfeeding in relation to building the immune system. I believe breastfeeding creates the biggest effect on the future of your child’s health. By breastfeeding, you could ultimately help give your child an immune system before they’ve developed it. 


What you need to know about the effect of breastfeeding on the immune system:

 • There are many different strains of friendly bacteria in breastmilk that are passed over. 

 • The mother’s antibodies get passed over (antiviral antibodies and antibacterial antibodies). 

 • There is a lowered risk of respiratory infections, ear infections, allergies, ADD, autism, and asthma. 

 • T cells will be passed over. T cells can take the immune system to the next level. 

 • Butyrate can be passed over. This could potentially help prevent allergies and autoimmune diseases. 

 • The risk of type 1 diabetes could also be decreased. 

 • There is a more diverse microbiome. 

 • There is more interferon. 


I think it would be best to breastfeed for a minimum of 6 months. Ideally, the child would have breastmilk for two years.

Use These Spices and Herbs for Rheumatoid Arthritis
319

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about the best spices and herbs for rheumatoid arthritis. 


What’s the difference between a spice and an herb? 

 • Herbs are the leaves, flowers, and stems of plants.

 • Spices are the seeds, fruit, root, and bark of plants. 


Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease. This means that your own immune system is attacking itself—mainly the joints. There is a lot of inflammation going on, and it’s really the immune system causing the damage. With rheumatoid arthritis, you have a big problem with the T cells. These cells are doing a lot of destruction to your joints. There is also a certain T cell that is supposed to turn off this immune reaction, and I think this could be where the bigger problem is—it’s not balancing the reaction. 


By using certain spices and herbs, you can help decrease the inflammatory process that’s creating the damage. You could also help strengthen the immune system and improve the antimicrobial function.


The best spices and herbs for rheumatoid arthritis:

1. Ginger 

2. Thyme 

3. Turmeric 

4. Cinnamon 

5. Garlic 

6. Black pepper

7. Oregano 


Other remedies for rheumatoid arthritis:

 • Increase potassium 

 • Decrease sugar consumption 

 • Fast 

 • Increase vitamin D

The Most Important White Blood Cell (WBC)
453

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about what I think is the most important white blood cell. There are numerous different white blood cells, but the T regulatory cell is the most important. This white blood cell is also called the T suppressor cell or Treg. 


What’s unique about this type of white blood cell is that it does the opposite of other white blood cells—it suppresses the immune system. In turn, this gives the immune system balance and prevents the immune system from overreacting. It also helps reduce mucus. 


T regulatory cells regulate self-tolerance. This means it helps prevent your immune system from attacking healthy cells. It allows your immune system to tell the difference between your own healthy cells and pathogenic cells. In turn, this helps with preventing autoimmune conditions, including:

• Inflammatory bowel disease

• Type-1 diabetes

• Asthma

• MS

• Rheumatoid Arthritis 

• Cytokine Storm


There are several nutrients that can affect T regulatory cell function. These include:

1. Vitamin A

2. Vitamin D

3. Zinc

4. DHA

5. Probiotics

6. Gluten (avoid this!)


Any nutrient deficiencies that suppress or atrophy the thymus gland will reduce T regulatory cell function. Keep in mind that the “T” in T regulatory cell stands for thymus. That’s because it’s produced in the thymus gland. Also, keep in mind that as you age, your thymus shrinks, causing more inflammation and poor immune function. 


Children who have taken antibiotics early on tend to have problems with T regulatory cells, asthma, and certain other autoimmune diseases.

How to Deal With Someone Sneezing Around You
391

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about sneezing and COVID-19.


Sneezing is actually not one of the symptoms of COVID-19. Most likely, it’s the pollen that’s causing them to sneeze. 


For the virus to invade the body, it has to go in through the eyes, mouth, nose, or from touching the face. 


The great majority of people with COVID-19 had no symptoms or very mild coronavirus symptoms. Two important factors that determine the intensity of the symptoms is the viral load (how concentrated the virus particles are), and the health of the immune system. 


COVID-19 has also been found to be potentially much more contagious than previously thought. But, this also means that COVID-19 could be less deadly than previously thought. 


Different variables involved in someone sneezing on you:

1. Number or concentration of viruses (breathing or talking has much less than coughing or sneezing) 

2. Velocity

3. Droplet size

4. Distance (3-6 feet) 

5. Susceptibility (support the immune system with vitamin D3, zinc, and vitamin C) 

6. Environment

Apple Cider Vinegar and the Coronavirus
212

Today we’re going to talk about apple cider vinegar and the coronavirus. Apple cider vinegar is very anti-microbial. 


It has been known to kill:

 • E. coli 

 • Staph 

 • Candida 


Apple cider vinegar also has the ability to downregulate cytokines. A cytokine is involved in the immune process and inflammation. Apple cider vinegar may be able to help decrease inflammation by downregulating cytokines.


Apple cider could also impair cell membranes in certain pathogens. Apple cider vinegar and other kinds of vinegar can stimulate phagocytosis. Phagocytosis is a condition where you have this immune cell eating the pathogen. It eats the bacteria or virus and kills it. Vinegar, being an acid, can stimulate the activity of that process. 


Vinegar has been around for about 5,000 years, not just for consumption, but to aid in the healing process. There are even certain anti-viral solutions using vinegar that you can create to clean off different surfaces in your house. 


So, could apple cider vinegar kill the coronavirus? Well, we have no idea. There are no studies out there that show this. But, it is good to know that apple cider vinegar can potentially kill certain viruses and help improve the immune system by decreasing inflammation, stimulating phagocytosis, and also impairing the membranes of certain pathogens.

Cravings and Hunger NOT Going Away on Keto and Fasting?
255

In this podcast, I want to talk about why you might still have cravings and feel hungry while on keto and intermittent fasting. 


If you’re following the exact healthy ketogenic diet plan, your cravings will go down to zero, and your hunger will go down to zero. When you’re doing the right program, your body has converted 100% to the state of ketosis. Any glucose your body needs it can make itself. You do not need to consume sugar or carbs. 


If you’re hungry or craving something, think back to what you ate yesterday. Was there anything you ate that you shouldn’t have? Did you eat keto-friendly foods that have maltodextrin or tapioca? Even fruit or dates could create hunger and cravings the next day. 


The cause behind cravings on keto or hunger while fasting is almost always that the person had too many carbs the day before. If you stay consistent each day, your hunger and cravings will go down. Once your hunger and cravings do inevitably go away, this diet is very sustainable.


A few more things that could cause hunger and cravings on keto:

 • Stress

 • Poor sleep

4 Ways to Neutralize Uric Acid
169

Today we’re going to talk about how to help decrease uric acid in the body. We’re also going to talk about some of the conflicting information that revolves around that topic. 


Uric acid is formed when it’s trying to breakdown purine, which is another compound found in foods. It’s mainly found in organ meats and meats but, it’s in certain vegetables as well. 


Uric acid can act as an antioxidant in the body, and that’s one of the reasons it may elevate when you’re doing fasting—as a way to enhance your immune system. 


When the pH of your urine becomes too acidic, this uric acid can leak out into the joints and cause gout. It can also leak into the kidneys causing uric acid kidney stones. 


Ways to control uric acid levels: 


1. Alkalize the body 

You can try:

 • Consuming potassium citrate

 • Consuming more alkaline vegetables

 • Taking baking soda

 • Taking other alkalizing minerals like magnesium and calcium

2. Apple cider vinegar 

3. Vitamin C (from lemons or lemon juice)

4. Reduce glucose and fructose 


Uric acid food to avoid:

 • Organ meats 

 • Sardines 

 • Asparagus 

 • Spinach 

 • Green peas

 • Cauliflower

What is tahini butter?

Tahini butter is basically ground sesame seeds.


Is tahini butter keto-friendly? Yes, it is!


Tahini butter benefits:

 • It's keto-friendly

 • It has a good amount of healthy fats with great protein

 • It has a lot of nutrition

 • It's rich in phytonutrients 

 • It has methionine

Is Fasting Messing Up Your Sleep?
215

Do you find that fasting interferes with your ability to sleep at night? Quite a few people have told me that their sleep isn’t as good at night while they’re doing intermittent fasting. I recently found some research on why this might be. Take a look. 


In this study, the researchers found that energy restriction for 2-7 days caused decreased nocturnal secretion of melatonin by 20%. 


What can you do about this? There are two things you can try:

1. You can add MCT oil to your diet. You want to have this just before bed. 

2. Increase your carbs to 50g a day.


Try one of these and see how it affects your sleep. 


The reason for this problem has to do with insulin resistance. You could have insulin resistance that has been there for a long time. This causes your brain to be starved of glucose. It can take your body time to adapt to ketones so that your energy, especially in the brain, isn’t restricted.

The Side Effects of Calcium Carbonate You Need to Know
270

Today we’re going to talk about the side effect of calcium carbonate. A lot of people take calcium carbonate, but they don’t know much about it. 


The biggest thing you need to know is that calcium and other minerals need an acidic medium to be absorbed. If your stomach does not have the acidity you need, the calcium will not be absorbed well.


A lot of people take calcium carbonate for heartburn, and the calcium carbonate dries up the acid in the stomach over time. So not only is the calcium not being absorbed, but it also ends up actually causing heartburn. In my opinion, apple cider vinegar might be a better choice for GERD or heartburn. But, of course, check with your doctor. 


Some studies show that high doses of calcium carbonate also do not increase bone density in osteoporosis. But, it did increase the risk of heart attacks. 


Calcium carbonate may even lower the thyroid function and block a person’s ability to utilize T3 (the active form of thyroid hormone). 


Side effects of calcium carbonate:

1. Loss of appetite

2. Constipation

3. Gas

4. Nausea 

5. Vomiting 

6. A decrease in hydrochloric acid (HCL)


Contraindications to calcium carbonate:

 • Kidney stones

 • Hypercalcemia 

 • Calcification 

 • A severe interaction with 210 drugs 


A lot of people are taking massive doses of calcium carbonate, thinking that it will prevent bone loss when it could actually be creating other issues.

Gut Bacteria and Viruses
402

Your gut microbiome is a combination of good bacteria and bad bacteria, such as:

 • Bacteria 

 • Yeast 

 • Parasites

 • Viruses 


There is something called VLP (viral-like particles). You have a lot of these in and around your body. VLPs don’t have any genetics inside of the cell, but they are viral-like particles that exist throughout the body. 


The human gut virome is clusters of viruses that live in your body, and there are a lot of them. You have a lot of bacteria in your body, possibly trillions. These viruses outnumber your bacteria by 10:1 and, in some cases, 20:1. These viruses typically don’t cause any problems unless you have lowered resistance or a medical problem that makes you more susceptible. This is why it’s important to keep your immune system strong. 


You also have an army of immune cells that include not just white blood cells, but also your good bacteria. If you’re lacking good bacteria, the bad bacteria can thrive. Also, if you’re eating foods that create a lot of inflammation, the inflammation can create a shift from good bacteria to bad bacteria.  


Your good bacteria:

 • Maintain the integrity of the intestinal barrier 

 • Keep inflammation down 

 • Compete for space and food (they don’t let the bad bacteria have enough space or food to live)

 • Directly kill pathogens

 • Enhance immunity 

 • There is a slink between the gut bacteria and the respiratory tract 

 • Recycle and modify bile salts, which are antibacterial 

 • Has anti-viral properties

Importance of Zinc for the Immune System
252

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about zinc and your immune system. Zinc is probably one of the most important trace minerals because it does so many different things. But, one of the most important health benefits of zinc is that it can help support the immune system. 


Zinc is involved in:

 • Genes and making DNA

 • Many different enzymes

 • Protein synthesis 

 • Wound healing 

 • Heart health 

 • Joint health 

 • Insulin 

 • Thymus function

 • Gonads


What can happen in relation to your immune system if you have a zinc deficiency:

 • Thymic atrophy 

 • Decreased lymphocytes 

 • Defective white blood cell response 

 • Low recovery rate 

 • Increased duration of infections 

 • Increased inflammation 

 • Increased oxidative stress

 • Decreased capacity to fight off infections

 • Increased susceptibility to viruses and infections


Foods high in zinc:

 • Oysters

 • Red meat 

 • Seafood/fish

 • Pumpkin seeds


If you want to take zinc supplements, I think a good choice is zinc bisglycinate chelate. 


There are certain things that can prevent the absorption of zinc, such as:

 • Phytates 

 • Oxalates 

 • Antacids 

 • Malabsorption (pre-existing gut damage or inflammation)

12 Amazing Benefits of Selenium
326

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about the health benefits of selenium. 


What is selenium?

Selenium is a trace mineral that has extremely powerful antioxidant properties. It’s a co-factor enzyme, which means it’s involved in a lot of different enzymes as a helper mineral. Its main job as an antioxidant is to help protect against oxidative damage. Selenium may be beneficial for chronic health problems and conditions where there is inflammation. 


Selenium benefits:

1. Helps make glutathione 

2. Oxidative stress reduction

3. Required for the conversion of T4-T3

4. Reduced complications of certain diseases

5. Anticancer

6. Antitumor 

7. It may be beneficial for those with alcohol-related liver disease 

8. It may be beneficial for those with arsenic poisoning 

9. It may be beneficial for those with autoimmune conditions

10. It may be beneficial for those with BPH

11. It may be beneficial for those with diabetes

12. It may help detox mercury


The RDAs for selenium are 55mcg. But, the therapeutic dosage you may want to consider taking if you have any of the above conditions would be 200mcg. Selenium can have toxic effects if you take too much. 


Selenomethionine may be the most beneficial to take. Brazil nuts are one of the most selenium-rich foods. But, they are also very high in phytic acid. Phytic acid actually blocks selenium. If you want to consume Brazil nuts, be sure to soak them overnight and dry them out first to get rid of the phytic acid.

Hydroxychloroquine: What Does the Research Really Say
1474

There has been a lot of conflicting information in the news about hydroxychloroquine. I want to give you all of the information about it so you can decide if you think it’s a good solution or not. 


Right now, there are three studies that show that hydroxychloroquine is effective. There are two studies that show that hydroxychloroquine is not effective. But there are still studies continuing to be done. 


Hydroxychloroquine studies showing the drug is effective:

1. In the first study, they found that hydroxychloroquine potently blocks the infection of the virus in-vitro. 

2. A clinical trial involving 20 patients in France found that patients that were treated with hydroxychloroquine and an antibiotic tested negative within five days.

3. A randomized control clinical trial with 62 patients in China found that the recovery time for fever and duration of cough significantly improved as well as pneumonia symptoms. 


How does hydroxychloroquine work?


• Hydroxychloroquine is an ionophore, which allows zinc to enter into the cells. Zinc can inhibit the virus. 

• It helps protect the break down of hemoglobin, so you’ll see less damage in the lungs and more oxygen. 

• Hydroxychloroquine suppresses the innate part of the immune system.

Gaining Weight During Lock-down? Do This....
355

If you’re finding that you’ve been gaining weight during this lockdown or coronavirus quarantine, and you want to lose weight, this video is for you. 


There are many reasons why people eat, such as:

A. Stress

B. Fatigue 

C. Boredom 

D. Happiness 

E. Depression

F. Hunger


You’re supposed to only eat when you’re hungry. One of the most powerful things you can do when you’re stuck at home in lockdown is fasting. Fasting can help significantly improve your immune system and give you extra protection. Fasting can also help uplift a person’s mood and even help increase cognitive function. 


Tips for the coronavirus lockdown:

 • Do not buy junk foods

 • Try to get the whole family on board with eating healthy

 • Go for long walks 

 • Stay productive 

 • Apple cider vinegar (in your water) 

 • Vitamin D/Zinc/Vitamin C (to help support the immune system)

 • Vitamin B1 (to help keep your stress low)

 • Potassium (to help lower stress and boost energy)

 • Do not snack 

 • Consume fat with your meals (olives, avocado, MCT oil, nuts)

Chronic Stress Literally Destroys Immunity
256

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about how stress affects your health. Chronic stress can literally destroy your immune system. 


Cortisol is activated by stress. 


Lymphoid tissue is an area where you have a lot of immune reactions to keep pathogens away from different organs. High cortisol will divert amino acids from the lymphoid tissue, basically shrinking this tissue. It makes your immune system smaller. 


Antibodies are produced by the immune system, and they help develop immunity. They don’t necessarily kill pathogens, but they put a tag on them for other immune cells to kill them. If you have enough antibodies in your system, you are protected. But, with high cortisol, you can have a decrease in overall antibody production. 


You also have various barriers of immune defense. But, high cortisol can create a break down in your cellular barriers, which can raise your susceptibility to viral and bacterial infections.  


Keeping your immune system strong isn’t just about good nutrition; it’s also about keeping your stress as low as possible.

Hair Lice Drug Kills COVID-19 in 48 Hours
114

I have some more good news about COVID-19. I’ve talked about hydroxychloroquine as a COVID-19 treatment. But, there is another drug out there called Ivermectin. They’re finding that one single dose of this drug can inhibit the COVID-19 virus by 5000% in 48 hours (in vitro).


This drug has already been approved for parasites, lice, and scabies. It has very few side effects, and it’s relatively inexpensive. 


There are a lot of new COVID-19 treatments being tested right now, but they take time. In the meantime, the best thing to do might be to build up your immune system.

Thymus, the Missing Link in Viral Protection
567

Today we're going to talk about the thymus gland in relation to viruses. 


What is the thymus?

The thymus is a very important lymph gland located right above the heart. When you're born, the thymus is large, and as you get older, it shrinks. 


The thymus has a very important primary function called central tolerance. Tolerance is all about preventing a self-attack. You don't want your own immune system to go rogue and destroy your own tissues. 


T cells — T cells are developed in the thyroid gland. 

There are three types of T cells:

 • Killer cells — Kill viral infected cells (needs iodine)

 • Helper T cells — Tag viruses for other cells to kill (needs vitamin D)

 • Regulatory cells — Keep the immune system from overreacting (needs vitamin D)


B cells — B cells are developed in the bone marrow. 

B cells make antibodies. Antibodies tag pathogens so other cells can kill them. But, antibodies can't really do anything once the virus gets into the cell. That's where helper T cells come in. 


Antibodies are specific to certain pathogens. Your body has the ability to develop an incredible number of different antibodies. With enough antibodies, you could have resistance or protection to pretty much anything. 


If you're deficient in zinc, this situation can cause your thymus to shrink, and you're not going to have all of the above functions.


How to support the thymus gland:

 • Zinc 

 • Vitamin D

 • Iodine

 • Keeping stress low 

 • Avoiding sugar

Your Immune System is Mostly Gut Bacteria
354

Today we’re going to talk about the relationship between your friendly gut bacteria and your immune system. 


There are trillions of microbes that live in and around your body. This is called the microbiome. You give these microbes a place to live, and in exchange, they give you immune protection, nutrients, and other beneficial things. 

 • 70% of the immune system is the microbiome

 • There are over 10,000 different species of friendly bacteria in and around the body

 • 99% of your microbiome is non-pathogenic 

 • The majority of microbes are living in the gut 


When you have an imbalance in gut bacteria or the microbiome, you start to:

 • Lose your gut lymphatic layer 

 • Have a decrease in lymph nodes 

 • Have fewer antibodies 

 • Have a decrease in T-cell production

 • Have less small-chain fatty acids 

 • Have less ability to make B12, B1, vitamin K, biotin, and lactic acid 


The friendly bacteria hoard the amount of food and space available to limit the number of pathogenic microbes. The less microbiome you have, the weaker the intestinal barrier is, which can lead to leaky gut. It’s also my opinion the autoimmune diseases start in the gut. 


COVID-19 attacks the cells through the ACE2 receptor. Your gut has way more ACE2 receptors than the lung tissue. So, this could be another mode of entry into the cell that goes beyond a lung infection.

Vitamin E Corrects Muscle Dysfunction
417

Today we’re going to talk about the importance of vitamin E for muscle function—especially when you exercise. If you exercise on a regular basis and you want to improve your strength and endurance as well as reduce fatigue, this video is for you. 


Vitamin E is known as a powerful antioxidant, and it may help support:

 • The inner surface of your arteries 

 • The retinas

 • The peripheral nerves 

 • The skeletal muscle membranes 

 • Reducing cramping—especially in the heart


Vitamin E deficiency symptoms:

1. Muscle weakness 

2. Muscle myopathies 

3. Reduced ability for muscles to contract


If you have a reduced ability for muscles to contract because you’re vitamin E deficient, you may experience muscle fatigue. You may have poor exercise performance, and you may also have tearing of muscle tissue without enough repair. 


Foods high in the vitamin E complex:

 • Wheatgerm 

 • Leafy greens 

 • Sunflower seeds 

 • Almonds

How Keto Protects Your Immune System
263

Today we’re going to talk about how keto can potentially help protect your immune system, especially when it comes to the coronavirus. 


99.2% of all deaths from COVID-19 are associated with metabolic syndrome. With this syndrome, your immune system is compromised big time. 


Those who do not have other health issues have a 0.8% chance of death. If a person has pre-existing health problems like high blood pressure, diabetes, a heart condition, or cancer, the risk of death significantly increases. 


It’s possible that insulin resistance is really behind some cases of health issues like high blood pressure, diabetes, certain heart conditions, or cancer. It’s estimated that 60-70% of Americans have some level of insulin resistance. 


When you go on healthy keto, you’re working to improve metabolic syndrome. Healthy keto promotes healthy insulin levels, which, in turn, may help improve certain health conditions. The healthy ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting can potentially help support the immune system and minimize the chance of dying if infected.

How Age Influences Your Immune System
343

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about what happens to your immune system as you age. As you age, your risk of viral and bacterial infections increases dramatically. 


This can happen because your microbiome changes. Your microbiome refers to all of the microbes living in your body. These microbes make up a great majority of your immune system, but they do a lot of other things as well. 


As you age, you have less diversity of your microbiome, and you have more pathogenic bacteria. So, now you have a situation where you have more pathogens and less friendly bacteria. This can make you more susceptible to getting infections. You also won’t make a good quantity of butyrate, which is involved in helping support healthy blood sugars and a healthy immune system. 


It’s very important as you age to maintain your gut flora. You may even want to consider taking a high-quality probiotic supplement. 


Another thing is that your thymus gland shrinks as you age. The thymus is the key lymph gland that has to do with protecting and supporting the immune system. You may want to take zinc to help support the thymus gland and possibly a thymus extract as well to help boost the immune system. 


As people get older, they typically start taking more medications. The medication that really destroys the microbiome is antibiotics. But, antacids, metformin, SSRIs, laxatives, and corticosteroids can have a negative impact on your microbiome as well. 


As you age, you also have a more difficult time absorbing vitamin D. Vitamin D is one of the most important immune modulators, which helps control the immune system.

What I Would Eat If I Had COVID-19
425

Today I’m going to share with you what I would eat if I had the COVID-19 coronavirus. 


Pre-existing conditions significantly increase your susceptibility to getting the COVID-19 virus and experiencing complications from the virus. These pre-existing conditions could include:

 • Diabetes 

 • Heart disease 

 • High blood pressure 

 • Insulin resistance 

 • Obesity 


All of the conditions above have something in common—high insulin. To help with a high insulin situation, you would want to consume a low carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet (healthy keto). 


Other foods I would consume if I was diagnosed with COVID-19:

1. Zinc:

 • Oysters 

 • Shellfish 

 • Red meat 

 • Cheese 


2. Vitamin D 

 • Cod liver oil 

 • Salmon 

 • Sun (20 minutes a day)


3. Vitamin C

 • Leafy greens 

 • Sauerkraut 

 • Berries


Stress increases cortisol. Chronically elevated cortisol (chronic stress) can severely affect your immune system. It also increases your susceptibility to getting viruses and bacteria. I would also definitely try to lower stress as much as possible.

8 Recommendations for Autism
425

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about autism and what I personally think might be beneficial for children with autism. 


What is different about an autistic brain and a normal brain? 

 • There is a defect in autophagy

 • Low vitamin D

 • Low folate

 • Dysmyelination 

 • Related intestinal problems (there is a connection between the digestive system and the brain) 


Here are my personal opinions and recommendations for autism:

 • Breastfeed for as long as possible 

 • Rid gluten from the diet 

 • Rid casein from the diet

 • Detox heavy metals (silica may be a good option) 

 • Selenium and zinc 

 • Healthy keto (plus exogenous ketones and MCT oil) 

 • Fasting 

 • Vitamins D and C

My Opinion on Fasting Ramadan
259

Today we’re going to talk about the relationship between fasting during Ramadan, and it’s immune effects.


Ramadan lasts between 29 and 30 days. During Ramadan, you’re required to not eat or drink anything from just before sunrise to just after sunset. This is a dry fast, which means you’re not drinking any water. 


What you eat before and after you fast is going to make or break your success. Having junk food or refined carbohydrates before and after your fast could inhibit some of the effects you could achieve from fasting. However, low-carb, keto-friendly foods may be much more beneficial to have during your meals. Ketones are even anti-microbial.


Benefits of fasting:

 • Decreased cytokines

 • Increased macrophages 

 • Increase the microbiome 

 • Increased resistance to stress

 • Decrease in oxidative stress 

 • Increased autophagy and xenophagy

Autoimmune Condition and Vitamin D
272

Today we’re going to talk about the huge connection between vitamin D and autoimmune diseases. 


The thymus gland is an immune gland that produces a very specific T cell called the T regulatory cell or T suppressor cell. One of the main jobs of this important T cell is to prevent autoimmune diseases. 


An autoimmune disease is tissue that has antibodies against itself. It’s an inappropriate immune response. 


One of the main functions of a T regulatory cell is something called central tolerance—tolerating the body tissue and not attacking it. 


A big function of the thymus gland is determining the self from a foreign enemy or pathogen. If it finds an immune cell that’s going to self-attack, it will execute it. 


The T regulatory cell:

 • Inhibits inappropriate autoimmune responses 

 • Is being used as a treatment in certain autoimmune diseases 


If you don’t have the T regulatory cell function, your risk for allergies, asthma, and miscarriage goes up. 


T regulatory cells majorly need vitamin D. A vitamin D deficiency can also potentially cause a miscarriage or other problems with the baby, because of how vitamin D feeds this T cell. 


If you have an autoimmune disease, you may want to consider taking high amounts of vitamin D, because vitamin D is an anti-inflammatory nutrient. T regulatory cells are anti-inflammatory as well. They are also immunosuppressive—they keep the immune system in balance.

The 7 Benefits of a Fever
304

Today we’re going to talk about the seven benefits of a fever. You might think a fever is a bad thing. But, it’s actually something normal that your immune system creates as a defense mechanism against certain infections. A fever can be a good thing that you don’t necessarily want to get rid of right away. 


The 7 benefits of a fever:

1. Restricts the reproduction of pathogens 

2. Decreases the time of infection 

3. Mobilizes white blood cells

4. Enhanced phagocytosis

5. Decreased endotoxin effect

6. Increased growth of T cells 

7. A decrease in mortality rate 


In some cases, what you might want to do is actually enhance the fever. This could potentially help in stimulating some of these immune reactions. 


There is no agreed-upon normal upper limit for someone’s temperature. So, what temperature should you let your body go to? Typically you may want to let the temperature rise to between 100-104 degrees Fahrenheit or 37.8-40 Celsius.


Certain immune cells that specialize in killing viruses do it by releasing things like interferon. When interferon is released, you could experience symptoms, including a fever. But, it may be best to let your body go through this process and not try to get rid of those symptoms right away, because you could weaken your immune system.

5 Reasons to Avoid Synthetic Vitamins
320

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about natural vs synthetic vitamins and the five reasons why you should avoid synthetic vitamins. 


Synthetic vitamins vs natural vitamins:

Synthetic vitamins and natural vitamins are not the same things. In nature, vitamins come in complexes. When you buy a natural vitamin, it can also come as an individual part of the complex, and it’s much better than the synthetic version. But there is a time and a place for the use of synthetic vitamins. 


For example, a short term detoxification program may call for synthetic vitamins. However, you do not want to use synthetic vitamins for maintenance. The other exception would be the synthetic version of B1, which is benfotiamine. This is a fat-soluble vitamin B1 that does not appear to have any side effects.


Synthetic vitamins:

 • Synthetic vitamins can be toxic 

 • Synthetic vitamins can cause deficiencies 

 • Synthetic vitamins are basically artificially fractions of parts of vitamins 

 • Synthetic vitamins don’t absorb as well as natural vitamins

 • Synthetic vitamins don’t have cofactors, enzymes, or trace minerals


How can you tell if you’re getting the right natural vitamins?

I believe natural or whole food vitamin complexes are the way to go. Look at the back of the label, and in the ingredients, it will tell you if it’s herb-based or a concentrated food vs if it just lists the vitamins and all of their values are the same. For example, B1 - 100mg, B2 - 100mg, B3 - 100mg. In nature, the values would be different. 


Liver pills could also be an exception as far as synthetic vitamins. But, consuming too much liver or taking too many liver pills could cause you to have too much iron or vitamin A.

Absent-Minded? How to Stop It!
458

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about absent-mindedness and how to improve absent-mindedness. 


Absent-mindedness is basically a lack of awareness. If you’re absent-minded, you might be forgetful and easily distracted. It could be happening because your brain cells are tired and starving for energy. 


Your neurons are normally dependent on glucose or lactate for fuel. But, when you consume those fuels, they have a side-effect. They can potentially cause cognitive dysfunction and absent-mindedness. 


But, your body can use another type of fuel called ketones. Ketones suppress glucose utilization. If there are ketones and glucose in your blood, your brain will use ketones instead of glucose. 


A simple solution to bypass a damaged nerve cell is to start increasing ketones. Ketones can feed the neurons what they need to function. They also affect the potassium channels, which can increase the communication between neurons. 


You can generate ketones by lowering your carbohydrates below 50g. You also may need to increase the time you fast. You would want to do at least 18 hours of fasting with a 6-hour eating window. You may also want to add exogenous ketones. A great form of exogenous ketones is MCT oil. 


How to overcome absent-mindedness:

1. Sleep 

2. Stop thinking so much 

3. Support your gut microbiome 

4. Ketones

Zinc Enhanced Trace Minerals: Dr. Berg's Product Review
458

Today I want to introduce you to my new product called Trace Minerals Enhanced. I did have a trace mineral product in the past that was a liquid, but this is a new and improved version. The old product, being a liquid, could get messy. I also wanted to add some additional trace minerals to this product to make it even better. 


The most important trace mineral that I wanted to add in a higher amount is zinc. But, if you take one trace mineral over a long period of time without the other trace minerals with it, this can cause deficiencies in the other trace minerals. So, I added a few key trace minerals in a blend of all of the other trace minerals. There are over 74 trace minerals in this product. 


Trace minerals are minerals needed in very small amounts. They are cofactors in the biochemistry of the body. You have different enzymes that are proteins that are building tissues, breaking food down, and are involved in the different chemical reactions. Trace minerals are essential in those chemical reactions. 


Consider taking 1-2 capsules per day on an empty stomach.

COVID-19: Is It as Deadly as They Say?
308

Today we’re going to talk about the infection fatality rate of COVID-19. The infection fatality rate is basically the percentage of how many people who were infected with COVID-19 died. It’s the number of infections divided by the deaths from the infection. 


Recent evidence indicates that COVID-19 may not be as deadly as previously thought. This really has to do with a lack of testing. 


It was thought that about 1 million people were infected with COVID-19. But, new evidence suggests that this number is way too low by a factor of 10x, and possibly even up to 30x. 


The coronavirus has a goal of getting into the cell and quickly doing damage. Once the virus is in the cell, the immune system doesn’t know it’s in there until after it replicates, and it comes out of the cell. Then, the immune system starts to attack the virus, and there is an immune reaction. At this point, B cells start making antibodies to COVID-19. 


Let’s say you overcame an infection, and you get tested for it. They’re not going to find the virus, but they will find antibodies to the virus. It has been found that a lot more people had the infection, overcame it, and developed antibodies without ending up in the hospital or having any significant problems. This new information creates a completely different picture of the infection fatality rate.

Use Forest Bathing for Immune Boosting
282

Today we’re going to talk about using forest bathing to boost the immune system. Forest bathing was used in Japan in the 80s for physical and mental health. It’s about getting out in nature and taking in the forest atmosphere. 


Basically, you’re out in the forest, and you’re breathing in certain chemicals or essential oils from the trees. There seems to be a very interesting immune benefit from being exposed to certain essential oils emitted from the trees in the forest. The group of compounds we’re talking about is called phytoncides. 


This chemical could significantly increase your natural killer cells. The natural killer cells are a part of the innate immune system, and they do several things. They will actually punch a hole into cells that have been infected by viruses and destroy the cell and the virus inside of it. 


Different studies have also found that diffusing the essential oils with the same chemical in the home could provide benefits. 


Forest bathing could potentially provide not only immune benefits but stress lowering benefits as well. It’s incredibly important to do what you can to strengthen your immune system. This could be a fantastic, natural, and inexpensive way to do that.

Are You Turning into a Germophobe?
278

Are you becoming a germophobe? I’m not against protecting yourself against the coronavirus or any virus for that matter. Yes, masks and washing your hands are incredibly important. But, here’s the thing, not all microbes are harmful. 


Friendly microbes are not pathogenic. Pathogens are microbes that can cause disease. A huge part of your immune system is friendly microbes. These microbes live all over your body on the inside and out. When you over-sterilize your body, this can lower your immune system and make you more susceptible to infections. 


A few benefits of your friendly microbes:


 • Certain microbes make acid that makes a pathogen not want to live in that environment. 

 • Friendly microbes make vitamins to support your immune system. 

 • Friendly microbes have anti-tumor properties. 


In some studies done on mice, they found that mice without any microbial life were more prone to autoimmune diseases, allergies, asthma, and other health issues.


Your skin flora is very necessary to protect you—it’s an immune defense. When you alter this microbiome, you basically throw the body out of balance, and you could develop inflammatory conditions. 


Over-sterilization can also lead to a decrease in T cells, which are important in preventing inflammatory reactions throughout the body. 


Even sterilized food (pasteurized food) goes through a process that kills off everything, including enzymes. These sterilized foods can potentially weaken the immune system.

COVID-19: Latitude, Mortality and Vitamin D
236

Today we’re going to talk about the relationship between COVID-19, mortality, vitamin D, and latitude.


There are actually all sorts of diseases related to latitude. For example, if you live in the northern hemisphere, you have a higher risk of getting:


 • Colorectal cancer

 • MS

 • Diabetes type 1

 • Breast cancer

 • Celiac disease

 • Lung cancer


An interesting report states that “low population mortality from COVID-19 in countries south of latitude 35 degrees north supports vitamin D as a factor determining severity.” Nordic countries are an exception likely because they consume a lot of fatty fish and take vitamin D supplements. 


Vitamin D regulates and suppresses inflammatory cytokines. Vitamin D doesn’t kill the virus, but it can help suppress cytokines, respiratory macrophages, and ARDS.  


You can also see lower vitamin D levels in people who have conditions that can increase the risk of death from COVID-19, such as:


 • Hypertension

 • Obesity 

 • Diabetes

 • Cardiovascular disease


Vitamin D is incredibly important to support the immune system and for suppressing inflammation in the respiratory system.

A NEW STUDY - Hydroxychloroquine Resulted in More Deaths...But Was it Credible?
330

Today we're going to talk about a certain study that has been circulating the news regarding hydroxychloroquine. 


According to the news, this study found that hydroxychloroquine was not effective and was even associated with a higher death rate. 


 • This study wasn't even published yet. 

 • This study wasn't peer-reviewed.

 • This study was a retrospective study.


A retrospective study means that they're using data or events that happened in the past. This was done in a VA hospital. They took the data from the patient's charts and summarized it. This study included 368 patients, and they compared three groups of patients. 


The first group was treated with hydroxychloroquine. The second group was treated with hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin. The third group was not treated with hydroxychloroquine. 


Hydroxychloroquine is an ionophore. It allows zinc to travel inside the cell. If there's enough zinc in the cell, this can potentially inhibit the machinery that's causing the replication of the virus. It sounds promising, especially when combined with zinc. In this study, they did not use zinc. Vitamin D was also not involved. Vitamin D is incredibly important in supporting the immune system and inhibiting cytokine storm.


Each of the groups in the study is very different. Severe cases of COVID-19, as in the first two groups, require hydroxychloroquine. Less severe cases do not, as in the last group. 


This study emphasized that the group that wasn't treated with hydroxychloroquine had 18 deaths versus 27 deaths in the group treated only with hydroxychloroquine. 


Without understanding this study, it appears that the drug could make you worse. But, in reality, the groups treated with hydroxychloroquine were much sicker than the group that wasn't.

What Is a Lymph Node?
398

In this podcast, we're going to talk about lymph nodes and your immune system.


You can think of the lymphatic system as a back-up drainage system to prevent excess fluid retention. But, this is just a minor function. The big function is the activation of the immune system. 


 One of the purposes of the lymph nodes is to keep a pathogen from spreading throughout the body. You will have an entire war going on within the lymph nodes if there is a pathogenic microbe.


A person has hundreds of lymph nodes throughout the body. Inside of a lymph node, there are lymphocytes. There are three primary lymphocytes:


1. Natural killer cells (kill viral-infected cells) 

2. T cells (kill specific microbes and determine self from non-self) 

3. B cells (make antibodies)


Inside of the lymph node:

 • There are a lot of antibody reactions going on

 • The immune system presents tiny parts of pathogens to the T cells 

 • There is a lot of lymph-blood exchange 

 • It filters certain cancer cells


The spleen is the largest lymph node. When someone has their spleen out, they have an increased risk of infection. Chronic stress activates cortisol, which then can shrink the lymphatic system. A zinc deficiency is another thing that can cause issues with the spleen and the entire lymphatic system.

Zinc Effects on Your Respiratory System
268

Today we’re going to talk about the effects of zinc on your respiratory system. There is a significant connection between zinc, the immune system, and especially your lungs. 


Potential situations that could occur if you’re deficient in zinc:


 • Increased duration of lung infections 

 • Diminished T cell function

 • Increased cytokines

 • Increased risk of lung infections

 • People with conditions like COPD are typically deficient in zinc

 • Increased risk for ARDS, upper respiratory infections, and lower respiratory infections

 • Increased susceptibility of the lungs to ventilator-induced injury 


If you have a lung infection, your body is going to be using so much zinc that chances are you could become deficient. The infection itself can cause a depletion of zinc, and then you lose more of the ability to fight the infection.

Anti-candida and Anti-fungal Effects of MCT Oil
270

Today we’re going to talk about an interesting connection between MCT oil and candida. MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides. This is a type of fat in coconut oil. There are several things in coconut oil that are anti-fungal and antimicrobial. MCT can potentially reduce candida in the body. 


Candida normally lives in the body and doesn’t create much harm. But, an overgrowth of candida can start causing problems. Candida is a cousin to mold and is related to fungus. 


An overgrowth of candida can cause: 


 • White tongue 

 • Burning mouth 

 • Cotton mouth 

 • Dry cracked skin in the corners of the mouth 

 • Bad taste in the mouth 

 • Fatigue 

 • Lowered nutrients (B6, Essential Fatty-Acids, Magnesium, Iron, Vitamin A)


Candida overgrowth can occur after a person takes antibiotics, or after doing something that destroys the gut flora. 


Candida, mold, fungus, and yeast all live on carbohydrates. Cutting out sugar and lowering carbohydrates, as in the keto diet, could starve off candida. 


Candida remedies:


1. MCT oil 

2. Fasting 

3. Keto

4. Molybdenum

Hair Loss: The Missing Link
347

Today we’re going to talk about hair loss and trace minerals. If you’re deficient in trace minerals, you could be losing your hair—but why? 


What is a trace mineral?

A trace mineral is a mineral that’s needed in very tiny (or trace) amounts. Trace minerals are helper nutrients in enzymes and proteins. 


In your cells, you have tiny biological machines, which are proteins and enzymes. Those little proteins do the work of the body. They build certain body tissue, they break things down, and they are involved in all sorts of biochemistry. 


Important trace minerals for hair:


1. Iron

If you’re anemic and you’re deficient in iron, one symptom can be hair loss. 


2. Silicon 

Silicon helps with the structure of your hair.


3. Zinc 

If you’re deficient in zinc, you could develop male pattern baldness. 


4. Copper 

Copper is involved with the color of your hair and building collagen. 


5. Selenium 

This is one of the most powerful antioxidants.


These trace minerals can help with:

 • Making protein 

 • Hair length 

 • Hair integrity 

 • Hair growth 


Alopecia could be due to a deficiency in:

 • B3

 • Biotin 

 • Vitamin E

 • Selenium 

 • Vitamin A 


If you have dry hair, you may need essential fatty acids. It could also be that you can’t digest the fats because of a gallbladder problem, a missing gallbladder, or a lack of bile salts. Or, you may not have enough good bacteria to recycle bile.

Is Sweden Doing the Right Strategy with COVID-19?
293

Today we’re going to talk about how Sweden’s strategy regarding COVID-19. In Sweden, they aren’t under any lockdowns or quarantines.


In Sweden:

 • The healthcare system is not at full capacity 

 • The schools are open 

 • The restaurants are open 

 • They are practicing social distancing 

 • They have banned groups of over 50


Sweden has the lowest number of ICU beds in all of the Nordic countries. It also appears that the number of deaths per day from the coronavirus in Sweden has gone down. 


Herd immunity is basically a situation where there are enough people exposed to a virus to build immunity against that specific pathogen. 


There are these things called B cells that are apart of the acquired immune system, and they make antibodies. Antibodies are very specific to a certain microbe. For example, when your body makes antibodies to COVID-19, they will wait until the next time you’re infected with COVID-19, and they will neutralize specific microbes associated with it. 


The theory is that with herd immunity, there will not be a massive spread of the virus. People become infected, then immune. They make antibodies, and then things are back to the way they were again. 


What Sweden tried to do was avoid the second wave of infection. The rest of the world that’s under lockdown will eventually have the lockdown lifted. Then, people are exposed to the virus again, and there could be a second wave of infection. 


Should we keep going with this cycle?

Speed Up Digestion
445

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about how to speed up your digestion. If you have constipation, indigestion, gas, bloating, or stomach pain, this video is for you. I’m actually going to break down each part of your digestive tract and explain a little bit about it.


Breaking down the digestive tract:


Stomach —

Acid is the key thing in your stomach. It helps you break down protein, absorb certain minerals, and kill pathogens. Many people do not have enough strong acid in their stomach. 


To support healthy stomach acid levels, consider:

 • Hydrochloric acid (betaine hydrochloride)

 • Salt 

 • Potassium 

 • Apple cider vinegar 

 • Kombucha tea 


Consider avoiding:

 • Antacids 

 • Calcium carbonate 


Bile —

Bile is made by the liver and stored in the gallbladder. Bile helps you break down fats. Supporting bile production can also help with bloating and belching.


To support bile production, consider:

 • Bile salts 

 • Beet tops 

 • Ginger

 • Artichokes 

 • Lemon 

 • Milk thistle

 • Choline 


Consider avoiding:

 • Decreasing friendly bacteria 

 • Taking out the gallbladder if possible

 • A fatty liver situation

Do "Carb Distancing", if Quarantined
286

Today we’re going to talk about what to do if you stopped doing keto and intermittent fasting during quarantine and how to get back on track. 


Along with social distancing, you may also want to try carb distancing. Some people think that to get back on keto, they should do a sugar detox. But, there’s really no such thing as sugar detoxification. 


When you stop doing keto and intermittent fasting, the brain starts using glucose as fuel again. But, now you want to get back on track, and you stop consuming carbs and sugar again. Your brain doesn’t have any stored sugar though, so you’re going to feel cognitive changes, such as:

 • Sugar cravings 

 • Stress

 • Depression

 • Anxiety 

 • Irritability 

 • Fatigue 


These are not symptoms of sugar detoxification. They are symptoms of lacking fuel. Changing over your fuel system from glucose to fat takes some time. The brain prefers ketones over sugar. This means that you want to get into ketosis as fast as possible. 


Things that can help get you back in ketosis fast:

1. MCT oil 

2. Consume protein 

3. Lower your carbs 

4. Increase foods high in potassium (vegetables)

The Ignored Pandemic: Vitamin D Deficiency
463

In this podcast, I want to talk to you about vitamin D deficiency—the ignored pandemic. There are over 1 billion people in the world who struggle with vitamin D deficiency or vitamin D insufficiency.


Vitamin D is vital to over 200 biochemical reactions. In fact, 5% of the genome is influenced by vitamin D. 


China, India, South America, and the Middle East are at the highest risk of vitamin D deficiency. Pregnant or breastfeeding women are also at a high risk of vitamin D deficiency. 


What happens when you are vitamin D deficient?

• T-helper cells have a difficult time working

• T-regulatory cells cannot function properly

• Iron is inhibited in many cells

• Immune cells themselves require vitamin D support

• Macrophages cannot function with vitamin D


Vitamin D is essential for preventing and recovering from illness and disease. It plays a significant roll in cardiovascular health, blood pressure levels, diabetes prevention, and so much more. 


If you have family members who have health problems, it’s important to get them on vitamin D—especially with COVID-19. 


The best source of vitamin D is sunlight. Keep in mind that, as you get older, the body has a difficult time absorbing sunlight and creating vitamin D naturally. Clothing, living far from the equator, pollution, dark skin color, skin health, sunblock, bad genetics, infections, and malabsorption problems can all affect the amount of vitamin D you can absorb.

Why Protein Helps Hypoglycemia (Low Blood Sugar)
275

In this podcast, we're going to talk about protein and hypoglycemia, and I'm going to cover how protein affects blood sugar. 


With hypoglycemia, what happens, is when the blood sugar goes up, insulin pushes it down, leaving you with low blood sugar. People with low blood sugar typically have a higher amount of insulin pushing blood sugar down, and there are no counter hormones to push the blood sugar back up. 


Hypoglycemia symptoms:

 • Fatigue 

 • Dizziness 

 • Irritableness

 • Grouchiness

 • Dry eyes

 • Depression


Some people have this idea that the fuel that the body uses is either glucose, fat, or ketones. But, protein can be used as fuel too. Protein can be converted into glucose through a process called gluconeogenesis. Protein can act as a fuel in addition to replacing the protein in your body. This is why when you consume protein when you have low blood sugar, you start feeling better.


If you have hypoglycemia and you were to consume carbohydrates, you might feel better for a minute, but then the insulin will kick the blood sugar back down. When you consume protein, you will stimulate some insulin, but at the same time, you will stimulate glucagon. Glucagon is the opposing hormone to insulin. Glucagon will raise the blood sugar, and insulin will lower it, creating a leveling effect. 


I actually recommend a moderate amount of protein. I believe what may be best for those with hypoglycemia is to get on the healthy ketogenic diet combined with intermittent fasting.

Why is Hypertension the Most Common Underlying COVID-19 Condition?
308

In this podcast, I want to talk to you about hypertension and the coronavirus. In a recent survey, 88% of people with COVID-19 had more than one illness. After being put on a ventilator, the mortality rate jumps up to 80%. These are not promising statistics. 


Here’s the question: why is high blood pressure the primary driver of severe COVID-19 symptoms? According to one study, 69.1% of people with coronavirus also had high blood pressure. Another study showed that 53% of people coronavirus patients have HBP—it’s always at the top of the list. 


It has to do with the ACE2 receptors. ACE2 receptors are on the outside part of the cells—they are like the doors which COVID-19 can get into a cell. 


Those who have high blood pressure often take ACE inhibitors. ACE inhibitors create a situation where more of these ACE2 cells or “doors” are created, which allows for more severe COVID-19 infection. 


Keep in mind that I am NOT recommending that you come off of your medication. 


To reduce your risk of COVID-19, it’s important to get your blood pressure under control. The question is, what causes high blood pressure?


90% of high blood pressure cases are considered “essential” hypertension. What this really means is that the cause is “unknown.” However, the problem might actually be a vitamin D deficiency. Numerous studies have shown that, when you take vitamin D, your blood pressure levels stabilize. 


Following this reasoning, it’s not far off to consider that vitamin D deficiency could be the leading cause of coronavirus complications.

The Potassium-Insulin Connection
236

Today we're going to talk about the relationship between potassium and insulin. If you're a diabetic or you have insulin resistance, this podcast is for you.


Insulin is a hormone that causes you to store fat. In the presence of insulin, it's almost impossible to burn fat and lose weight because insulin prevents fat burning. With insulin, you store sugar as fat, and it prevents the break down of fat. Insulin also stores glucose and turns glucose into glycogen. 


Glycogen is a string of glucose molecules held together as stored sugar. Potassium is also involved. Potassium is necessary in the storage of glycogen. 


The main purpose of insulin is to lower your blood sugar. It does that by taking the sugar and putting it in storage as glycogen or as fat. 


Insulin also helps put potassium in your cells. When you consume a high-carb diet, you deplete potassium from the inside of the cell—you lose potassium. 

 

Taking potassium makes insulin less resistive. Potassium may be very beneficial if you have insulin resistance. If you're a diabetic, you have insulin resistance. 


If you're deficient in potassium, that situation will impair glucose and even increase the risk of insulin resistance. 


It is very important to get enough potassium—especially if you have a blood sugar issue.

Hydroxychloroquine versus Remdesivir
320

In this podcast, I want to compare hydroxychloroquine versus remdesivir. 


A big mistake was made by the World Health Organization when they sent this study to various publications. There was a rush to publish the study right away because of the success of remdesivir, and the wrong study was accidentally sent. 


In the study that was sent, there was not an association with statistically significant clinical benefits with remdesivir. 


The study that they wanted to publish only showed a moderate improvement in recovery time. Remdesivir is also an expensive drug.

 

The media has sparked excitement over remdesivir, but is ignoring hydroxychloroquine. 


A new study that was done using hydroxychloroquine and an antibiotic showed that 91.7% of the patients that were tested for COVID-19, in 10 days did not test positive for COVID-19. The mortality rate was 0.5%, with no cardiac toxicity. Hydroxychloroquine is a very inexpensive drug.

It’s Not The Virus that Kills You, It’s Your Immune System
345

Today we’re going to talk about viruses and the immune system. It’s not the virus that kills you. It’s actually your own immune system. 


The virus doesn’t have a metabolism. It’s not even alive. Here’s what happens. You have this inactive shell with some DNA that has some very specific instructions to replicate. There are certain things on the surface of the virus that connect to certain tissues and certain receptors in the cell. 


For example, COVID-19 connects to the ACE2 receptor. Once it connects, it’s able to get into the cell. Once inside of the cell, the immune system doesn’t see it at first. The goal of the virus is to get into the cell and replicate as fast as possible. This creates a lot of damage and an immune reaction, but it’s not what kills you. 


Let’s say you have COVID-19, you’re on a respirator, and you have cytokine storm. This is creating massive destruction, which can lead to death. This destructive inflammatory condition is also happening on the inside of your arteries, and it can even create blood clots. The innate part of the immune system is overreacting because part of the adaptive immune system is not working.


The T suppressor cells, which are a part of the adaptive immune system, suppress or regulate the overreaction. But, there is a severe imbalance going on where you lose the adaptive immune system, including the T suppressor cells, and there is too much of the innate immune system causing the overreaction. This is what’s really killing people. 


The virus is a trigger, and it causes damage, but the virus mainly seems to kill people with a weak immune system. It’s usually certain metabolic conditions that cause weakness within the T suppressor cells.

New COVID-19 Study with Vitamin D
178

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about a very fascinating study relating to COVID-19. 

Vitamin D is not only associated with decreased severity from COVID-2 but also decreased mortality from COVID-2.

A study that involved 780 confirmed cases of SARS-COVID-2 showed decreased severity in blood clots, hypoxia, and respiratory stress. 


There were three groups involved in the study:

Group 1: Had enough vitamin D

Group 2: Had insufficient vitamin D

Group 3: Had a deficiency in vitamin D


The group that had a deficiency in vitamin D had a much higher mortality rate than the group that had enough vitamin D. 

Vitamin D can potentially put out the cytokine storm. You could be at a much higher risk of infection if you are deficient in vitamin D.

The Benefits of Mucus
294

Today we’re going to talk about mucus and how amazing mucus really is. Your mucus is actually a very important part of your body. 


The body makes between 1 and 1.5 liters of mucus per day. The mucus sits on mucus membranes covering the inside of your body. The mucus membrane is a part of the immune system. Friendly bacteria live in the mucus, and immune cells live in the mucus. 


The mucus membrane and the mucus on top of it line the:


 • Sinuses 

 • Mouth 

 • Throat 

 • Lungs 

 • Stomach 

 • Intestines 

 • Kidneys 

 • Urogenital 


What does mucus do?


 • It acts as a lubricant

 • It’s antimicrobial 

 • It has good bacteria 

 • It acts like a flytrap for harmful microbes

 • It has antibodies 

 • It acts as a barrier to keep pathogens out 


How to thin mucus build-up:


1. NAC

2. Vitamin A

3. Vitamin D

Hydroxychloroquine Benefits Are Beyond Killing the Virus
286

Today we're going to talk about the benefits of hydroxychloroquine that actually go beyond just killing COVID-19. 


Hydroxychloroquine has been used for over 70 years as a malaria drug. It's been repurposed for COVID-19. Hydroxychloroquine is also a very inexpensive drug. 


There are some reports that hydroxychloroquine is ineffective and could even be dangerous. But when you look deeper into the study their claims are based on—it's bogus.


Hydroxychloroquine benefits that go beyond killing the coronavirus:


1. It's a zinc ionophore 

2. It's antithrombotic 

3. It's an alkalizer 

4. It suppresses an overactive immune system 

5. It's a powerful anti-inflammatory 

6. It helps reduce autoantibodies 


But, there may be a point of no return. It's unclear whether hydroxychloroquine could have as many benefits if the person is in the later stages of the virus when there is already too much damage.

The "Intermittent" Part of Fasting and Exercise Is Vital
478

Today we're going to talk about "intermittent" and what that really means. We're going to cover intermittent fasting, the biggest intermittent fasting mistake, and intermittent exercise. 


A healthy body has really good circadian rhythms. These are natural waves of rhythm like:


 • Sleep cycles

 • Eating cycles 

 • Rhythms of digestion

 • Rhythms of hormones


Anything we do of a sustained nature adds more stress to the body. For example, one of the most important things intermittent fasting does is correcting digestion. The body was not designed to consume on a sustained basis (snacking in between meals). Sustained eating can create sustained stimulation of insulin, which can lead to insulin resistance and diabetes. It's very important to fast, and not eat anything when you're fasting. But, you can drink water and take supplements during fasting. 


High-intensity interval training is intermittent exercise. This can help stimulate growth hormone. Doing this high-intensity exercise intermittently is important because it won't stimulate the opposing hormone: cortisol. It keeps the stress down while still stimulating growth hormone. The growth hormone is stimulated by the high intensity. But, cortisol is stimulated by duration, which you're keeping short. 


Recovery is also very important. During the downtime, when you're relaxing, you need to stay off your phone and try to keep your mind from overthinking.

Vitamin A and Your Immune System
351

In this podcast, I want to talk to you about vitamin A and your immune system. Now, I’ve done plenty of other videos on the role of zinc, vitamin D, and vitamin C in the immune system, but I haven’t touched on vitamin A yet. 


Vitamin A is an essential part of the immune system. A vitamin A deficiency will leave your body susceptible to infections—especially in the respiratory system, including your lungs, sinuses, and throat. 


You need vitamin A for your mucous membranes. In particular, vitamin A is required for the creation of mucin. Mucin is an essential part of the mucus membrane. 


Vitamin A is also involved in the epithelial layer and lymphatic system layer. Each of these acts as a barrier for microbes. 


When pathogens enter the body, your body triggers macrophages. These are large phagocytic cells that consume pathogens and clean up other harmful debris. Macrophages are your body’s first line of defense against infection. 


Your thymus gland, which is right above the heart, helps train your immune cells. The thymus can actually activate and synthesize vitamin A. 


Vitamin A is also required for dendritic cells and neutrophil traps. 


When you’re low in vitamin A, your risk increases for:

• Ulcerative colitis 

• MS

• Psoriasis

• Lupus


How can you get more vitamin A? The best source of vitamin A are:

• Beef

• Liver

• Cod liver oil

• Mackerel 

• Salmon

• Goat cheese

• Butter

• Cream cheese

• Eggs

• Vegetables (pre-vitamin A in carotenoid form)

Why Does Vitamin D Lower Blood Pressure
294

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about vitamin D and blood pressure. I want to cover why vitamin D can potentially help someone with hypertension. 


Never stop taking your blood pressure medication unless you’ve checked with your doctor. But, if you’re on blood pressure medication and you’re not taking vitamin D, you might want to consider taking it. 


One of the most commonly prescribed drugs for hypertension is an ACE inhibitor. This drug inhibits the angiotensin-converting enzyme. This enzyme relates to an entire system in your body, which is called the renin-angiotensin system (RAS).


The RAS helps regulate:

 • Blood pressure 

 • Fluid balance 

 • Electrolyte balance 


Vitamin D actually helps lower the RAS. My theory is that the reason this system could be high in the first place is that the person has a vitamin D deficiency. 75% of the population has some level of vitamin D deficiency. 


What might help lower blood pressure (research and talk to your doctor about it):

***10,000-20,000 IUs of vitamin D3 with vitamin K2 


 • If you do 10,000 IUs of vitamin D3, then consider 100 mcg of vitamin K2.

 • If you do 20,000 IUs of vitamin D3, then consider

 •  200 mcg of vitamin K2. 

 • You could also consider adding 1000 mg of potassium a day.

The Sun's Benefits Are Way More than Vitamin D
236

In this podcast, we're going to talk about some really interesting benefits of sunlight that go beyond just vitamin D. 


When the sun hits your skin, certain chemical reactions occur that generate vitamin D from the cholesterol in your skin. You actually need cholesterol to make vitamin D. 


Health benefits of sunlight that go beyond vitamin D:


1. When the sun hits your skin and retinas, it can increase serotonin, which can potentially affect your mood. 

2. The sun can reduce melatonin. Melatonin helps you sleep. 

3. The heat and humidity from the sun may have the power to decrease viral loads.

4. UV has antibacterial effects. 

5. The sun can increase resistance to infection. 

6. The infrared wavelength of the sun can be great for wound healing and decreasing pain.

Black Plague Pandemic New Discovery
257

Today we’re going to talk about the Black Plague pandemic. This pandemic roughly occurred around 1348. There were between 70-200 million people that died during that pandemic. 


A discovery was made by digging up and examining the skeletons from an unmarked grave in northern London. They found that a good number of these skeletons had:


 • Rickets (rickets is a severe vitamin D deficiency)

 • Bad teeth (bad teeth can be due to a vitamin D deficiency)

 • Anemia 

 • Injuries (potentially from a war)


So there was a combination of malnutrition and a war that could create a perfect storm for a weakened immune system. 


A vitamin D deficiency can create:

 • Susceptibility to infection 

 • A low number of white blood cells

 • Weak white blood cells

 • Less control of inflammation 


There was also a pandemic that occurred in 1918 called the Spanish Flu, in which about 50-100 million people died. Both of these pandemics peaked in the winter, which is also the time of year when people typically get the least amount of vitamin D. 


There was also a war going on at the time or near the time of both of these pandemics. This could have caused a drop in nutritional levels because people started eating differently. There weren’t a lot of fresh, nutrient-dense foods available, especially for soldiers. 


With COVID-19, the people who are dying are older, and people with a weakened immune system. Supporting a healthy immune system is crucial.

COVID-19 is Causing Small Blood Clots
216

There have been some interesting new findings on why people are dying from COVID-19. It’s been thought that COVID-19 is more of a pneumonia type problem or ARDS. But, they have found that it’s actually more of a thrombosis, which is blood clots. This could explain why some people are also getting heart attacks or strokes. 


The virus is triggering inflammatory cytokines. If a person has a pre-existing condition or a weak immune system, they could get an overreaction of cytokines called a cytokine storm. They also don’t have the enzymes that are supposed to resolve the situation, which causes a massive amount of oxidative stress. At this point, the tissues are being destroyed, and the person is starving for oxygen. 


Hydroxychloroquine, which is being used in some cases as a treatment for COVID-19, just so happens to be anti-thrombotic. It can help prevent clotting. It’s also anti-inflammatory. A few other things that I think could potentially help this situation are:


 • Antioxidants (vitamin C and vitamin E)

 • Vitamin D 

 • Zinc 

 • A low carb diet

Wholefoods, Organic and China
136

Some of the organic foods that you buy from Wholefoods are actually from China. 


The United States does not inspect imported foods. In very small print on certain organic products from Wholefoods, you'll see that it says "product of China." Not all of the foods are from China, but it's important to check the labels to make sure they aren't products of China. Even the "California Blend Vegetables" said "product of China" on the label. 


Organic means "without pesticides, insecticides, and antibiotics." If you're able to, I believe it's best to go organic as much as possible.

Are You Serious Enough About COVID-19?
259

Do you need to get more serious about the coronavirus (COVID-19)? There are many definitions of the word serious. But, the definition of serious that we’re focusing on here refers to looming danger or grave danger. Basically, you’re afraid. 

 

The problem is that being in a state of fear can greatly affect your immune system. It can increase cortisol and adrenalin, making you more susceptible to disease. 


It is vital, despite what’s happening in your environment, to try to maintain an attitude of ease (being less serious). There is no benefit of being overly serious about anything or being in a state of fear. 


The more fear and inaction, the more stress the person is in, and the more cortisol, the weaker the immune system.


A better option may be to stay in action, stay calm, and get the facts. There is a big difference between fact and opinion:


 • Facts are based on evidence—truth.

 • Opinions may or may not be based on facts.


Opinions:

 • The virus will kill you

 • Millions will die


Facts:

 • The people that are dying have a weakened immune system 

 • A person has a 99.8-99.9% chance of not dying with COVID-19 

 • Fear weakens the immune system

Myasthenia Gravis Remission with Vitamin D
274

Today we’re going to talk about an interesting case study that was done by a Brazilian doctor working with a patient who had myasthenia gravis.


Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune disease. An autoimmune disease is where you have what they call autoantibodies that are against your own tissues. This particular autoimmune disease attacks the connection between your nerves and your muscles. This creates a lot of muscle problems.


 One of the treatments commonly used for this condition is steroids. But, unfortunately, there are a lot of side effects when you take steroids. 


This doctor used between 80,000 and 120,000 IUs of vitamin D3 and was able to put this patient’s symptoms in remission. 


Vitamin D is hormone-like and acts as a steroid without the side-effects. It also supports the T regulatory cells, which is a part of the immune system that helps prevent autoimmune diseases. 


There is a huge connection with a lot of autoimmune diseases and vitamin D deficiency. But, one of the concerns people have with taking high doses of vitamin D is a condition called hypercalcemia. This is high calcium in the blood, which could potentially lead to kidney stones. To lessen this risk, the doctor told the patient to omit calcium from the diet. Drinking 3.5-4 liters of fluid a day could also potentially help lessen the risk of kidney stones.

COVID-19 Mortality Rates Might Be Slightly Less
225

It’s possible that the COVID-19 mortality rate may be slightly less than what they’ve been telling you. 


Two recent studies focused on measuring antibodies to the virus. The purpose was to find out the true infection rate. 


University of Southern California 

 • 863 people were tested

 • 4.1% of the group had antibodies to the virus 


Stanford University 

 • 3300 people were tested 

 • 2.4 - 4.2% of the group had antibodies to the virus 


The infection rate was thought to be 7994 when in actuality, it was between 220,000 and 442,000. These are people that already had the infection, recovered, and now have antibodies. 


In the Stanford study, there were 50-85x more people that were infected in that population than the original numbers. 


This puts the infection fatality rate at 0.1-0.2%, which is similar to what’s happening with the flu. 


According to this new information, the coronavirus (COVID-19) is 22-85x less dangerous than what they’ve been telling us.

Vitamin D Suppresses the Cytokine Storm
482

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about what vitamin D can do for the cytokine storm. 


A cytokine storm is basically what’s really killing the majority of people who die from COVID-19. But, it’s only deadly if the person’s immune system is malfunctioning. 


There is a really interesting study that compared the two countries with the highest mortality rates from COVID-19 to the countries with the lowest mortality rates from COVID-19. They looked at their vitamin D levels. They found a correlation between the higher mortality rates and low vitamin D. Not only that; they found a strong correlation between vitamin D and cytokine storm. People that had the most vitamin D did not have the cytokine storm. 


Vitamin D is an immune modulator. It controls the amount of inflammation within the immune system.


A cytokine is a signaling protein that can:

 • Increase the number of white blood cells

 • Cause inflammation

 • Suppress inflammation

 • Stimulate angiogenesis (the growth of new blood vessels)


Just like how your immune system has strategies to fight off pathogens, pathogens have strategies to survive and counter attacks. 


During a cytokine storm, there is a hyperinflammatory reaction going on that creates a lot of damage in the body. 


Vitamin D may be able to help suppress cytokines. But, if your immune system is already healthy, you don’t really have to worry about anything.

The Ketogenic Diet, Your Thyroid and Hair Loss
370

In this podcast, I want to talk to you about the ketogenic diet, intermittent fasting, your thyroid, and your hair. Some people who go on an intermittent fasting and keto plan notice hair loss. Some people also feel cold and have an enlarged thyroid. There is a way to do keto correctly, so you don’t have hair loss and a thyroid problem. 


Vitamin A activates thyroid receptors. The pituitary sends a hormone down to the thyroid that controls it. The hormone is called thyroid-stimulating hormone, or TSH. It changes the size of the thyroid and the production of hormones, like T4. Low levels of vitamin A can inhibit the thyroid receptors of TSH. In turn, your pituitary produces more and more TSH to try to force the thyroid to work. 


When this situation happens, it can cause the thyroid to enlarge. In turn, this can make you cold and contribute to hair loss. 


Vitamin A comes from:

• Liver

• Eggs

• Butter

• Fish oil

• Greens


If you don’t consume enough of these foods, you could be low in vitamin A. 


The other causes of low vitamin A could be:

• Fatty or inflamed liver

• Low gallbladder bile or no gallbladder

• Gastric bypass

• SIBO


Low levels of zinc is another very common problem that causes thyroid issues. This is often caused by avoiding all animal products, like with a vegetarian or vegan diet. Shellfish and red meat are excellent sources of zinc.

COVID-19: Will Warmer Temperature and Humidity Reduce Infection Rate?
248

Today we’re going to talk about COVID-19, temperature, and humidity. Could COVID-19 get better in the summer?


Studies on COVID-19 and temperature:


Study: High temperature and high humidity could significantly reduce the transmission of COVID-19. For every increase in 1 degree Celsius and increase in 1% humidity, there’s a decrease by R (the infection rate) by .0383 and .0224.


Study: There are greater infections in the northern hemisphere versus the lower hemisphere. This may have to do with distance from the sun and how much vitamin D people are able to get. 


Study: Showed an inverse relationship between humidity, temperature, and COVID-19 infections. 


Certain viruses are seasonal and peak in the winter because they’re more stable in cold temperatures. During the winter months, people also tend to have higher levels of cortisol, which weakens the immune system. 


During the winter months, you’re also going to get less vitamin D, which can weaken the immune system. There are even more benefits of sunlight that go beyond vitamin D and temperature, that you’re missing out on in the winter months. 


If there are viruses that are peaking in the winter months, it’s important to keep your immune system strong during this time. You can also take vitamin D and do whatever you can to help counter the increase in cortisol. Sleep and long walks could help as well.

Quick Way to Know if You Have Brain Damage
296

In this podcast, I want to give you a quick way to know if you have brain damage. The truth is, everyone acquires some degree of damage in their brain as they age. This has to do with a lack of fuel in your neurons. 


In one study, it was shown that the average person loses about 30% of their brain cells as they reach old age. This happens very gradually over time. The early signs of dementia can come on slowly—you might start forgetting where you put your keys or forget someone’s name. 


When your neurons are starving of fuel, you will notice:

• Loss of memory

• Lack of clarity

• Loss of focus and poor attention span


This all comes from consuming a high carbohydrate diet. Over time, carbs cause insulin resistance, and glucose cannot supply the brain cells with energy. 


Neurons actually prefer a different type of fuel: ketones. If given a choice between glucose and ketones, your neurons will choose ketones every time. 


There are two simple experiments you can do to find out if you have brain damage:

1. Go on a healthy ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting plan, which promotes the creation of ketones. 

2. Use MCT oil - this instantly creates ketones. 


After 1-2 weeks, take note of your cognitive improvements. If there are significant improvements, this could be a sign of damage due to low nutrients in your brain. In this case, it’s important to stay on a keto and intermittent fasting plan. It may even help reverse damage done to the brain.

The Cheapest COVID-19 Therapy in the World
523

Today we’re going to talk about the cheapest potential COVID-19 therapy in the world. What we’re talking about is the sun, and what it can do to give you vitamin D. Of course, this is actually free, all you have to do is go out and get 20 minutes of sun. 


Somalian immigrants make up a very small community in Stockholm, Sweden. They make up less than 1% of the entire population of Stockholm. Yet, in Stockholm, 40% of all of the COVID-19 deaths were from this small group. 


What puts people at risk for COVID-19?: 

• Pre-existing health problems (obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, COPD, asthma)


This group didn’t have many of these problems, and they weren’t all over the age of 60. But, what they do have is darker skin. The melanin that changes the color of the skin—protects against UV. But, it also prevents the absorption of vitamin D. In Chicago, 72% of deaths due to the coronavirus were African American. 


The Somalian group also has a dress code that requires them to be almost fully covered, which can prevent vitamin D absorption. 


It has also been found that the great majority of COVID-19 deaths were in the Northern hemisphere. This could be related to the distance between where you are and the sun, and how much vitamin D you’re going to get.

How Immunity is Created: Antibodies
384

Today we’re going to talk about antibodies and how you can create your own immunity through your own antibodies. 


You have this amazing and powerful internal defense mechanism, or immunity, that helps neutralize enemies.


There are two parts of the immune system:


The innate—

You are born with this. It doesn’t need any training. It has a general defense mechanism for day to day activity. When things get too intense, they signal the acquired immune system to get help. 


The acquired or adaptive—

This is the back-up force. The acquired has very specific actions to help protect you. This part of the immune system is acquired or adapted over time. It learns from experience. If it’s not first exposed to a virus, it won’t learn anything. 


Hypothetically, vaccines are supposed to create artificial immunity. But, your own body can even create immunity to pathogens. It all occurs mainly from the B cells, which are a part of the acquired immune system. B cells have receptors that can reach out and grab pathogens. These are called antibodies. Antibodies neutralize the enemy (a pathogen). 


A virus becomes dangerous when it gets inside of the cell. If you recover from a virus, the next time you’re exposed to this virus, you’ll be immune to it. This is because you now have antibodies waiting to neutralize the virus. 


High levels of cortisol can decrease your antibodies. Low levels of zinc or vitamin D can also cause you not to have the full capacity of your antibodies. 


Certain viruses can also create white blood cell amnesia, which causes the antibodies not to remember what to attack.


You have an incredible machine in your body, and if you take care of it, it can help you.

Why Does Saudi Arabia Have Such a Vitamin D Problem?
279

Today let’s talk about Saudi Arabia and vitamin D. 


There was a meta-analysis between 2008 and 2015 that demonstrated that 63.5% of the population had a vitamin D deficiency. On top of that, 19.9% of the population had vitamin D insufficiency (a subclinical vitamin D deficiency). Together, this is 83.4% of the population that had a problem with vitamin D. 


Saudi Arabia is also:

 • 7th in the world for the rate of getting type 2 diabetes

 • 4th in the world for the rate of getting type 1 diabetes


84% of the type of 1 diabetes cases in children showed a vitamin D deficiency. So, why is this such problem in Saudi Arabia? Well, there is traditional clothing typically worn in Saudi Arabia, that blocks the sun. But, there are other factors as well. Only 10% of the vitamin D you get comes from your diet. It’s almost impossible to get all of the vitamin D you need from your diet. 


Vitamin D deficiency symptoms:

 • Fatigue 

 • Depression

 • Diabetes

 • Inflammation

 • Aches 

 • High blood pressure 

 • Weak immunity 


It may be beneficial, especially for those in Saudi Arabia, to start taking vitamin D supplements. If you do take vitamin D supplements, you may also want to take vitamin K2. For every 10,000 IUs of vitamin D3, consider taking 100 mcg of vitamin K2.

What Causes Autoimmune Conditions?
393

Today we’re going to talk about autoimmune conditions and what causes autoimmune conditions? 


An autoimmune condition is a situation where your body has created immune cells that are attacking itself. 

This creates inflammation, and the inflammation creates a lot of collateral damage. It’s all of the free radicals that end up actually destroying the tissue. 


The immune cells that are attacking itself are called autoantibodies. You can have these autoantibodies to pretty much any tissue in the body. 


What autoimmune conditions boil down to is one cell called the Th17 cell becoming overactive. Excessive amounts of this cell are responsible for autoimmune conditions. 


In your immune system, you have a lot of different T cells. The T stands for thymus. Typically T helper cells do things like recruiting help to fight infection and generating weaponry. It’s the main controller in the battle against infections. 


One of the functions of these cells is to maintain the intestinal barrier. This is the barrier that helps keep out viruses and pathogens. If there’s a break in the wall and harmful bacteria get in, they can invade the inside of the body, causing an immune attack. Now, your body is going to start creating antibodies against these cells. If those cells are pathogens, this is a good thing. But, what if those cells are your own cells? This, of course, wouldn’t be good. 


Another function of Th17 cells is making sure that the body doesn’t destroy its own tissue. This cell could help prevent autoimmune conditions. 


The Th17 cells also work with the T regulatory cells, which have an even greater function of preventing autoimmune diseases. It may also help suppress autoimmune diseases and hyperinflammatory conditions. T regulatory cells also calm down infections. 


When the Th17 cell doesn’t work as it should, you’re at risk for getting a movement of bacteria across the intestinal barrier. This could lead to chronic infection and chronic inflammation.

High Blood Sugar Despite No Dietary Sugar?
313

Today we’re going to talk about why you might have high blood sugar in the morning even though you’ve had zero sugar. You might even have your first meal and notice that your blood sugar levels actually go down. What’s up with that?


Your liver is actually what’s making the sugar. The name for this is called gluconeogenesis. The liver is making new sugar out of protein, ketones, or fat. 


Everyone has a little bit of this going on. To an extent, this is a normal reaction due to hormone fluctuations. To a very small degree, you’ll have blood sugar fluctuations throughout the night and throughout the day. But, when you have too much of this, it’s called the dawn phenomenon. 


The dawn phenomenon is a situation where you wake up, and your blood sugars are too high. This is likely due to insulin resistance. Insulin resistance makes the dawn phenomenon a lot worse. 


All of this goes back to insulin, which stores fat, and is supposed to keep gluconeogenesis from happening. When you have insulin resistance, in certain parts of your body, you don’t have enough insulin. But, in other parts of the body, you have too much insulin. 


A normal blood sugar level is about 80. This would mean you have about 1 level teaspoon of sugar in all of your blood or 5 grams. For every 10 points that your blood sugar goes up, that’s an increase of 1/2 gram. If your blood sugar is 120 in the morning, this means you have an extra 2 grams of sugar in all of your blood. This is not an outrageous amount that will cause a lot of problems. 


What you can do if you have high blood sugar in the morning:


1. Give it time

2. Take things to speed up the process (potassium, magnesium, zinc, and vitamin B12)

3. Exercise (walk for about 20 minutes)

Sleeping But Still Tired When You Wake Up?
272

Today we’re going to talk about daytime sleepiness. If you find that you’re still tired even after sleeping all night, this is called excessive daytime sleepiness. 


When you go to bed, there are waves of hormones that occur. There are four 90 minute cycles, and when you go through these waves, there are different levels of sleep. The goal is to get into delta sleep, which is when you really recharge. 


What prevents you from getting into the delta sleep wave, or makes you tired all the time?

1. Vitamin D deficiency 

2. Not enough fermented foods

3. Not enough omega 3 fatty acids 

4. EMF 

5. Chronic infection

What To Do After a Stroke: IMPORTANT
293

In this podcast, I talk about what to do after a stroke. Now, it’s vital to do these things to help restore brain function and prevent more damage. 


When you have a stroke, it causes something called hypoxia. This is a situation where you have low oxygen in the brain and damaged brain tissue. The brain needs a lot of oxygen. Although the brain only makes up 2% of body tissue, it uses 20% of your oxygen.


What you need to do is focus on increasing oxygen in the brain. To restore oxygen to the brain after a stroke, do these 7 things: 


1. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy - This forces pure oxygen into the body. I recommend doing this right away. 


2. Ketones - A keto diet and intermittent fasting will increase ketones and give your brain more oxygen. 


3. DHA - This is an Omega-3 fatty acid that can help improve a damaged brain. 


4. Vitamin D - This powerful vitamin can help a damaged brain.


5. Lots of exercise - Excercise helps flood the body and brain with oxygen. 


6. Acute Intermittent hypoxia - This creates a hormetic effect that can stimulate certain genes to increase the growth of brain tissue. 


7. Whole vitamin C - The whole complex of vitamin C can help strengthen blood vessels and prevent future strokes.

Doesn't Keto Cause Gallstones Eating All That Fat?
336

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about keto and gallstones. Can you do the ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting if you have a gallstone?  


What is a gallstone made of? 

There are several different types of gallstones, but the most common is the cholesterol gallstone. 


The different types of gallstones contain several of the same ingredients, such as:

 • Cholesterol 

 • Bilirubin 

 • Phosphates

 • Calcium carbonate


What causes gallstones?

It’s mainly a combination of two things:

1. Too much cholesterol 

2. Too little bile 


The most important thing you need to know about gallstones:

 • The composition of a gallstone is not the same thing as bile 


Another important point about gallstones:

 • Fasting does not cause gallstones


What can cause a super-saturated amount of cholesterol?

A situation where the gallbladder is not contracting anymore. It’s not releasing bile. It just sits there, and cholesterol comes in and forms stones. If you’re not triggering your gallbladder to release its contents, over a long period of time, that could cause a gallstone.


What triggers the release of bile from the gallbladder?

The answer is saturated fats. A ketogenic diet is a low-carb high-fat diet. So, when you do keto, you’re going to be releasing a lot of bile on a regular basis. If you add intermittent fasting, you’re going to concentrate the bile. 


* Healthy keto and intermittent fasting may actually decrease the risk of gallstones. 

* What increases the risk of gallstones is a low-fat diet. 


A couple more things you need to know about gallstones:

 • High estrogen can trigger gallstones

 • High insulin can increase the risk of gallstones

 • A common treatment for gallstones is taking purified bile salts

Black Pepper: The Good and Bad Health Effects
164

In this podcast, I want to talk to you about black pepper. Is it good, or is it bad? The truth is, there’s something very good and very bad about black pepper. Let me explain. 


The main phytonutrient in black pepper that benefits your health is called piperine. 


Pepper can:

• Relieve stomach aches

• Improves dopamine and serotonin levels

• Reduce inflammation

• Provide vitamin K, iron, and magnesium

• Improves bioavailability of some compounds (by up to 2000%)


By far, the most amazing part of black pepper is its ability to increase the bioavailability of other compounds, including:

• Curcumin

• Selenium

• B12

• B6

• Vitamin A


The problem is that piperine can also increase the bioavailability of toxic substances. It can prevent your liver from getting rid of toxins in the body, so you will retain it. 


It’s not good if you’re taking certain medications, including:

• Lithium

• Tegretol

• Rifampin

• Dilantin

• Viramune XR

Scoliosis, Kyphosis, Lordosis and Vitamin D
333

In this podcast, we're going to talk about scoliosis, kyphosis, and lordosis, and how these conditions relate to vitamin D. 


Scoliosis is an abnormal curve in the back. 

Kyphosis is more of a hunchback. 

Lordosis is a condition where the person has a swayback. 


When you look up the cause of scoliosis, it's very unclear. A study out of Hong Kong found that 30% of people with scoliosis have osteopenia. Osteopenia is the start of bone loss, which can be caused by a lack of calcium or (more likely) low vitamin D3.


A few symptoms of a vitamin D deficiency: 

 • Scoliosis 

 • Kyphosis 

 • Lordosis 

 • Muscle spasm 

 • Bowed legs

 • Knocked knees 


Vitamin D has a lot to do with the development of the skeletal system, especially the spine. It's very important for a mother to have enough vitamin D while carrying her baby and while breastfeeding. But, 50% of pregnant women are deficient in vitamin D. 


How to know if you're vitamin D deficient?

If you press on your breastbone or shin and it's tender—that could be a sign of a vitamin D deficiency. 


Other signs of a vitamin D deficiency: 

 • Muscle spasms 

 • Depression 

 • Weekend immune system 


If you're taking vitamin D and not seeing much of a difference, you could have celiac or some type of damage to the small intestine. Greater amounts of a liquid vitamin D supplement may help. 


Vitamin K2 works with vitamin D3. Typically, if someone is deficient in vitamin D3, they're also deficient in vitamin K2. Vitamin D helps with the absorption of calcium. Vitamin K2 helps keep calcium from accumulating in the arteries and joints.

Adrenal Insufficiency and Low Cortisol: Symptoms, Causes & Solutions
1407

In this podcast, we're going to talk about adrenal insufficiency and low cortisol. I've talked a lot about the adrenal gland and cortisol, but I want to touch on a condition called Addison's, which is an autoimmune condition. 


By the time you notice Addison's complications, over 90% of your adrenal glands are destroyed. This means you're not able to produce enough cortisol and other hormones. Symptoms of this are:

• Fatigue

• Weakness

• Weight loss

• Can't sleep

• Salt cravings

• Low tolerance to stress


Though cortisol helps the body respond to stress, it actually has over 200 other functions throughout the body. It helps regulate blood pressure, immune response, and insulin levels. In fact, it can help counter hypoglycemia. 


What causes Addison's? There are three primary things: 


1. Tuberculosis 

Around 25% of the population has TB. However, it can remain dormant until later in life. I recommend 20,000 IUs of vitamin D to combat TB


2. Fungus

Certain funguses can cause cortisol levels to drop. This often goes unnoticed. 


3. Stress and trauma

Both mental and physical stress can cause Addison's disease. Stressors can cause the adrenals to shut down or becomes overwhelmed. I recommend using acupressure to help the adrenal glands function properly. Just to the right of the belly button, use your thumb and middle finger to apply pressure. This will help relieve and extract stress.

How to Get Rid of Bloating and Abdominal Distention
340

Today, we’re going to talk about how to get rid of bloating and abdominal distension. 


The major source of stomach bloating is microbial fermentation. This is the chemical breakdown of carbohydrates by a microbe. These microbes have the ability to breakdown fiber, whereas the body can’t. 


When the microbes breakdown these undigestible fibers, they turn them into some interesting things:

1. SCFA (small-chain fatty acids)

2. Lactic acid 

3. Methane 

4. Hydrogen 

5. CO2

6. Nitrogen 

7. Hydrogen sulfide 


What you can do to help reduce bloating:


1. Adjust or eliminate your consumption of certain carbs/fiber like:

 • Fruit

 • Garlic

 • Onions

 • Asparagus 

 • Milk 

 • Yogurt

 • Beans


2. Add a good probiotic 


3. Try certain foods to reduce bloating:

 • Fennel 

 • Ginger

 • Anise

 • Peppermint 


4. Take apple cider vinegar or betaine hydrochloride

Sleeping Pills and Insomnia
745

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about sleeping pills and insomnia. I'm also going to show you how to use certain acupressure techniques to help get rid of stress and sleep better. I understand the feeling of not being able to sleep. It can feel like torture. I really want to help you learn the best way to sleep better. 


The two big problems with sleeping pills:

1. 6 out of 10 people experience side effects from sleeping pills

A few side effects of sleeping pills:

 • Drowsiness

 • Confusion

 • Forgetfulness

 • Tiredness during the day


2. Sleeping pills may only give you a small amount of extra sleep (less than 30 minutes), and only help you go to sleep 8-20 minutes faster.


How to get rid of insomnia naturally:

1. Read a book instead of watching TV before bed

2. Walk (45-60 minutes) 

3. Stretch before bed

4. Neck technique 

5. Avoid too much caffeine 


Another good remedy for sleep disorders: 

 • L-tryptophan (take on an empty stomach) 


The sleep aid I recommend not only has l-tryptophan, but it also has all sorts of other ingredients to help extract stress and allow you to drift off into a wonderful sleep. Not only will it help you get to sleep faster, but it will also help you wake up more refreshed.

Will Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) Break Your Fast?
224

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about apple cider vinegar and fasting. Apple cider vinegar does have carbohydrates. So, will apple cider vinegar break your fast?


One tablespoon of apple cider vinegar (ACV) has .01g of carbohydrates. So it’s not really going to break the fast more than a nanosecond. 


Balsamic vinegar has 3g of carbs, and rice vinegar has 6g of carbs. So, comparatively, these two types of vinegar both have a lot more carbs than apple cider vinegar. But, if you’re just using a small amount as a salad dressing, I think it’s going to be just fine. 


What is vinegar?

Vinegar is mainly acetic acid. Acetic acid comes from acetic acid bacteria that ferment carbs. It breaks down certain carbohydrates with enzymes and eventually turns them into vinegar. Fermentation is pretty much the breakdown of carbs, sugar, or alcohol by bacteria. 


The really interesting thing about apple cider vinegar is that it has a tiny amount of carbohydrates, but it still has a lot of benefits. 


A few apple cider benefits:

 • It can help stabilize blood sugars

 • It may lower insulin

 • It can help improve insulin resistance 


Anything that decreases insulin will help you lose weight. Because apple cider vinegar stabilizes your blood sugar, your hunger will go down, and your energy will go up. 


You don’t have to worry about consuming apple cider vinegar while fasting. In fact, I actually encourage it. Apple cider vinegar may even help you fast for longer and have more energy.

Will Zero Carb Alcohol Stop Ketosis?
167

 Today I’m going to answer the question, “will zero carb alcohol stop ketosis?” 


Has carbs:

 • Beer

 • Wine 

 • Mixed drinks 

 • Coolers


Has no carbs:

 • Whiskey 

 • Vodka

 • Brandy

 • Tequila

 • Dry martini 


Alcohol does not turn to sugar. So, is alcohol keto-friendly? Alcohol has seven calories per gram, whereas carbohydrate has four calories per gram. These calories have to go somewhere. Despite the fact that it doesn’t turn to sugar or raise insulin levels, the alcohol calories will turn into fat. Within one minute, it’s already into your bloodstream and up to your brain.


Alcohol goes to the liver, where the liver considers it a priority. In the liver, you have an enzyme, which breaks the alcohol down into a highly toxic chemical. 


This chemical can create: 

 • Fibrosis

 • Inflammation 

 • Fatty liver

 • Oxidation



This chemical can also stop fat burning. 


Alcohol depletes:

 • Vitamins B1 and B12

 • Folate 

 • Zinc

 • Vitamins D and A

 • And more


Realize what your body has to do to get rid of this alcohol. If you’re going to drink, try to drink small amounts and make sure your diet is super healthy to counter the complications, side effects, and nutritional deficiencies that alcohol can create.

Dangers of an Ultra Low Fat Diet
198

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about the dangers of an ultra low-fat diet. 


I’m talking about a low-fat diet where the fats make up only 15% of your total calories. With the diet I recommend, fats make up about 70% of your total calories. 


Why low-fat diets don’t work:

Well, there are a lot of things in fat that we need, such as fat-soluble vitamins and essential fatty acids. Fat is also needed to make structural parts of our tissues—including cell membranes.  


Dangers of an ultra low-fat diet:

1. Decrease in vitamins A, D, E, K

2. Risk of mental problems 

3. Increased risk of cancer

4. Decrease in HDL/increase in triglycerides 

5. Decreased fat—increased carbs 

6. Never satisfied—hungry

7. Low-fat high protein—hard on kidneys

Can't Sleep Without Carbs: Do This!
270

In this podcast, we're going to talk about what to do if you can't fall asleep without carbs. 


Why can't I fall asleep without carbs?

It can take a long time to fix insulin resistance, even once you make the switch to a ketogenic diet. With insulin resistance, you have higher amounts of insulin. With keto, you consume lower amounts of carbohydrates. But, you're still going to have high insulin despite cutting out the carbs because of the resistance problem. 


Higher amounts of insulin can push the blood sugars down too low in the middle of the night. With low blood sugars, you have counter hormones that keep your blood sugars from going down too low. The two main ones are cortisol and adrenaline. These two hormones are behind many sleeping problems. 


What to do if you can't fall asleep without carbs:

1. Time (as you fix insulin resistance, this problem will get better)

2. Take electrolytes (potassium, magnesium, and calcium)

3. Take apple cider vinegar before bed

4. Adjust the amount of protein you consume as your last meal

5. Consume more vegetables 

6. Take vitamin B1

7. Limit caffeine consumption

8. Take exogenous ketones before bed

9. Get more vitamin D by being in the sun or by taking vitamin D

Intermittent Fasting Patterns for Different Situations
489

Today we’re going to talk about intermittent fasting and intermittent fasting patterns for different situations.


1. Growth hormone

This is an anti-aging hormone that helps burn fat and preserve muscle. Fasting, exercise, and sleep can spike growth hormone.

 • Increases at 12+ hrs.


2. Autophagy  

This is a condition where your body is recycling damaged proteins and clearing out microbes.

 • Increases at 18+ hrs.


3. Inflammation 

You can really see a drop in inflammation when you do OMAD (one meal a day). This also applies to sickness and speeding up the recovery process. 

 • A drop in inflammation may happen at 23+ hrs. 


4. Cancer 

With cancer, consider doing OMAD with periodic prolonged fasting. This helps lower glucose and glutamine. Also, when you do eat, consume a lot of cruciferous vegetables. 

 • These effects may happen after 23+ hrs.


5. Stem cell 

This is a cell that hasn’t turned into anything yet. When you do a periodic fast for 72 hours, you’re going to stimulate some stem cells. This can help build new tissue. 

 • These effects may happen after 72+ hrs. 


6. Stubborn weight 

If you have a really stubborn weight situation, consider doing OMAD every other day. Make sure you’re getting your nutrients. 

 • For stubborn weight, try eating one meal every 48 hours.


7. Diabetes 

This is a problem with excess sugar. With diabetes, you can really help the blood sugar situation with fasting. The problem is that you must check your blood sugars routinely, and talk to your doctor about adjusting your medications. Check with your doctor and fast gradually.

Baking Soda vs Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) for Indigestion: Which is Better?
446

Today we’re going to talk about which is better for digestion, baking soda, or apple cider vinegar (ACV)?


There is no doubt that both of these home remedies for indigestion work. But I want to talk about the long-term effect of baking soda vs. apple cider vinegar. 


Hypochlorhydria is a situation where you either don’t have enough stomach acid, or the acid is weak. The purpose of stomach acid is to help break down protein, to help kill pathogens, and to help with the absorption of minerals and trace minerals. 


Symptoms of hypochlorhydria:

 • GERD

 • Acid reflux 

 • Indigestion

 • Anemia

 • Constipation 

 • Stomach infections

 • Malabsorption 

 • Carcinoma 

 • Heartburn 

 

Baking soda vs. Apple cider vinegar:


Baking soda

Baking soda for indigestion will make you feel better because it’s going to help remove some of that excess acid in your esophagus. But, the next time you eat, you’re still going to have the same symptoms because it’s not corrective. Baking soda also contains a tremendous amount of sodium. When you increase sodium, you deplete potassium, which is connected to many different conditions. You also deplete chloride. This can cause you to deplete hydrochloric acid in your stomach and then cause you to need more baking soda.  


Apple cider vinegar 

Apple cider vinegar is a great natural remedy for indigestion. You need to dilute it. Mix one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and take it before you eat.


The fluids in your stomach should be acid, but the blood in the body should be slightly alkaline. Alkalizing the body is not the best thing to do in every situation. 


Symptoms of acidosis:

 • Irritated nerves 

 • Sighing frequently 

 • Sensitivity to light and sound 

 • A lump in the throat when you swallow 

 • Difficulty breathing in high altitudes

 • Lactic acid 

 • Uric acid

Benefits of Nutritional Yeast that Go Beyond B-Vitamins
226

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about the benefits of nutritional yeast that go beyond providing B vitamins.


Brewers yeast is the by-product of making beer. It’s a bit bitter. Nutritional yeast does not have a bitter taste. Nutritional yeast is actually made with molasses, which is a by-product of sugar cane. Molasses is rich in nutrients. 


Nutritional yeast makes 18 amino acids. It’s a complete protein. 


Nutritional yeast also contains 15 minerals and trace minerals, such as:

 • Selenium 

 • Chromium 

 • Manganese 

 • Copper 

 • Vanadium 

 • Molybdenum 


Nutritional yeast is rich in glutathione, which is one of the most powerful antioxidants for your liver. It has beta 1-3 glucans, which can help decrease free radicals and stimulate certain white blood cells. Nutritional yeast also has glucose tolerance factors that help stabilize your blood sugar. 


Make sure when you buy nutritional yeast supplements, it is non-fortified nutritional yeast. You don’t want it to be enriched with synthetic vitamins. Typically, you won’t see vitamin B12 in nutritional yeast unless it has been added in. If it is added in, make sure it’s the natural version called methylcobalamin.

The Difference Between the Colon and Intestines
292

In this podcast, we’re going to talk about the unique difference between the small intestine and the large intestines. 


The small intestine:


The small intestine is a lot longer. There are three parts:

 • The first part is 10-15 inches

 • The second part is about 8 ft. 

 • The last part is 8-13 ft.


90% of all the digestion occurs in the small intestine. You have enzymes that are generated from the pancreas and the small intestine that help break down proteins, carbohydrates, and fat. 


In the first part of the small intestine, you have the contents of the stomach and some of the juices from the pancreas coming out to help neutralize the acid from the stomach. You also have the absorption of iron happening here. 


The next part of the small intestine is where you will absorb certain vitamins and nutrients. In the last part of the small intestine, you will absorb and recycle bile salts. You’re also going to absorb vitamin B12, fat, fat-soluble vitamins, and certain electrolytes. 


The small intestine is alkaline, which triggers certain enzymes. When the microbes from the large intestine back up and get into the small intestine, that’s called SIBO. SIBO can cause nutritional deficiencies and a lot of bloating.  The large intestine is a bit smaller at around 5 ft. 


This is where fiber starts to ferment. You’re also going to absorb water, fluids, certain electrolytes, salts, and potassium. There are a lot more bacteria in the large intestine than in the small intestine.  The pH of the colon is going to be more acidic to help kill pathogens that should not be there. But, it doesn’t affect good bacteria. 

When the fiber is fermented, it’s going to turn into small chain fatty acids, such as butyrate. Butyrate is actually the preferred fuel for the colon cells. Butyrate also helps stabilize your blood sugars, increase energy, and helps improve insulin resistance.

Benefits of Probiotics That You Never Considered
184

I this podcast, we’re going to talk about the benefits of probiotics that you may have never heard before. 


Well-known health benefits of probiotics:

 • Helps with digestion 

 • Decreases inflammation 

 • Gets rid of gas/bloating 

 • Fights against pathogens 

 • Good bacteria help digest fiber

 • Good bacteria make vitamins (biotin, vitamin K)


Little-known benefits of probiotics:

 • Decreases stress

 • Elevates the mood 

 • Decreases acne

 • Helps with blood sugar control 

 • Decreases body odor 

 • Promotes better sleep 

 • Improves sinuses 

 • Supports weight loss 


I would recommend probiotic supplements that are in a liquid form that can survive the stomach. 


I also recommend taking your probiotics before bed. Start by taking a very small amount and gradually work up to taking a tablespoon. If you find yourself detoxifying or feeling congested, then start taking smaller amounts again over a long period of time. 


You have to let your system get used to the new good bacteria that you’re adding. The good bacteria kill off the bad bacteria, and you can have a little bit of an immune reaction going on in your gut. But, overall probiotics may help improve gut health and much more.

Red vs Green Cabbage: Which is Healthier?
185

Today we're going to talk about red and green cabbage differences. I'm also going to tell you which type of cabbage is healthier. 


Red cabbage vs. Green cabbage: 


Benefits of red cabbage:

 • 10 times more vitamin A than green cabbage 

 • More Vitamin C than green cabbage (sauerkraut has about 10 times more vitamin C than unfermented cabbage)

 • 2 times more iron than green cabbage 

 • Anthocyanins (ant-cancer, anti-inflammatory, reduces free radical damage)


Benefits of green cabbage:

 • More vitamin A than red cabbage 


Both green cabbage and red cabbage contain:

 • Phytonutrients 

 • Sinigrin—sulfur (anti-cancer)

 • Polyphenols 

 • Flavonoids

Most Pain is Referred Pain
532

Today we’re going to talk about referred pain. 


What is referred pain? 

Basically, referred pain is pain that is coming from a different location than where you hurt. 


Referred pain examples:


1. Pancreas

May have referred pain to the left shoulder or the back. It may also not be referred pain and hurt right over the pancreas.


2. Spleen 

May refer pain to the left shoulder.


3. Heart

May refer pain to the left arm, shoulder, or jaw.


4. Gallbladder 

May refer pain to the shoulder area.


5. Liver

May refer pain to the right shoulder. 


6. Ovary

May refer pain to the lower back.


7. Prostate

May refer pain to the lower back.


8. Kidney 

May refer pain anywhere underneath the last rib to the spine. A kidney stone can cause pain in the groin area, but the problem is not in the groin. 


What causes referred pain?

They don’t really know what causes referred pain. 


A very large percentage of people have referred pain versus pain from the actual pain source. If you haven’t had an injury to a certain area, but it starts hurting for no reason, it’s likely referred pain. 


What to do for referred pain:

 • Healthy keto

 • Intermittent fasting

Sharp Stomach Pain That Comes and Goes
594

Today, we’re going to talk about why you might have sharp stomach pain that comes and goes. 


What causes stomach pain that comes and goes?


1. SIBO 

The worst thing to consume if you have SIBO is vegetables. If you have SIBO, try taking betaine hydrochloride.


2. Inflammation/Ulcer 

This could be caused by damage from something you’re eating or a food allergy. Try a food allergy test to identify the problem. For an ulcer, taking chlorophyll may help. 


3. Gallbladder/Bile ducts 

Eating the wrong types of foods, or high levels of certain hormones can cause a stone. This can create irritation. 


 4. Pancreas/Duct 

Carbs can cause your pancreas to work too hard. If it’s working too hard, the stimulation can interfere with the normal flow of digestive juices, which can cause a lot of problems. 


5. Gluten  

For some people, this can be poisonous and cause a lot of damage to their system.


6. Fortification (iron) 

Enriched flour products contain iron. Excessive amounts of iron can be very toxic and cause a lot of damage. 


7. Vegetable oil 

Vegetable oils are highly inflammatory to the digestive system. 


8. GMO grains 

GMO grains are sprayed with glyphosate, which can irritate your digestive system.

 

9. Low stomach acid 

If you don’t have enough acid in your stomach, it will cause food to go through undigested—causing problems. Try consuming apple cider vinegar and betaine hydrochloride.


10. Frequent eating 

Intermittent fasting allows the gut to heal and rest. 


Other than those things, try consuming moderate amounts of protein and keep your carbs low. Also, consume plenty of vegetables except if you have SIBO.

The Different Causes of Jaundice
205

In this podcast, I’m going to talk to you about the different causes of jaundice. Jaundice is a situation where your skin and the whites of your eyes turn yellow. This is caused by bilirubin backing up into the skin. 


Bilirubin is a compound that comes from the breakdown of red blood cells. This happens because your liver isn’t clearing them out. With infants, this can mean that their liver is underdeveloped. With adults, it’s typically liver damage. 


There are 8 things you can try to help get rid of jaundice. 

1. Sunlight (or phototherapy)

2. Vitamin D

3. Rosemary

4. Lemon juice

5. Ginger

6. Amla berry

7. Oregano

8. Milk thistle

Give these a try and see if they help you get rid of jaundice.

Hypothyroidism May Not Be a Thyroid Problem
519

Did you know that the majority of hypothyroid conditions are not really a thyroid problem? 90% of all hypothyroid conditions are Hashimoto's. This is an autoimmune condition. With this autoimmune condition, the thyroid has antibodies that attack itself. This is immune dysfunction, not necessarily a thyroid problem. But, it does affect the thyroid.


 This could be why many people with this condition never see any change—because they're treating the wrong problem. If you look up hypothyroidism, you will see that the cause is low thyroid hormones. But what's causing the low thyroid hormones? 


If you have hypothyroidism that's not involved with Hashimoto's, it could be secondary to something else. 80% of the conversion of T4 to T3 happens through the liver. So, if there's something going on with the liver or the gallbladder, it could mean that you're just not getting the conversion of T4 to T3.
