More specifically, you want help with The Inflammation Factor in Common Diseases?
hey guys today we’re going to talk about the common threads between the real big healthcare problems out there heart disease cancer Alzheimer’s autoimmune diseases I’ve talked a lot about diabetes we’ll touch on that a little bit and there’s other ones but these are the main ones so let’s first talk about heart disease what happens in the blood vessel of someone with heart disease as they start developing plaque okay and the plaque is built up with cholesterol and the person has usually high LDL and that’s called bad cholesterol supposedly bad cholesterol but in reality LDL is low-density lipoprotein okay it has cholesterol in it but this is a protein okay and there’s this huge focus on cholesterol but not any problem with protein if we take a look at a plaque it’s composed of cholesterol calcium and proteins okay but people don’t say to avoid protein and they don’t tell you to avoid calcium either right even though calcium makes up this plaque they really target this thing called cholesterol now the thing you need to know is before this piece of plaque develops there’s always something that starts it okay and it’s usually some inflammatory situation going on there’s some type of damage in the wall of the artery in the heart okay and then it starts to build up and one of the best tests to do for the heart is called a coronary artery calcium test so the coronary artery calcium test is way more accurate in detecting heart disease than LDL or cholesterol or anything because they’re looking at the calcification so with heart disease we have something that destroys the wall of the artery usually it could be any number of things it could be an infection from a microbe it could be free iron in the body it could be some type of oxidant it could be a lot of sugar which is very very common like high blood sugar and anything that oxidate s’ this wall of the artery that starts the process of inflammation and starts building up this plaque okay then we get to something called Alzheimer’s in this situation you have amyloid plaque II okay Emily plaque II is a type of protein okay so this is not coming from consuming too much protein or anything like that this comes from first having damage to the brain okay it could be from an infection it could be again from some oxidative thing that damages the brain so it could be from a chemical it could be from a whole bunch of things okay then you get the inflammation then would you have happen is the replacement of the damaged piece of the brain for amyloid protein so the body is trying to heal or protect or trying to patch something up it’s the same thing with heart disease this plaque you know is considered something really evil but it’s just trying to help the body heal this original wound right here same thing with Alzheimer’s what’s unique about Alzheimer’s is that you have cells that just can’t take up insulin so they’re very hypoglycemic and the the cells need certain glucose or fuel like ketones so if you actually start off the the brain cells of their fuel source they start dying and you start getting Alzheimer’s okay so that’s what’s unique that’s different with this thing right here cancer because in cancer you have first stages damage to the mitochondria from some free radical thing or oxidant like could be free iron it could be radiation it could be a chemical in the environment of pesticide there’s all these things called carcinogens right so it creates damage within the mitochondria then as a way to salvage the mitochondria which is Energy Factory the body shifts to a different type of metabolism okay it’s like an ancient pathway that we don’t normally use but divided and switches to this thing at this level I don’t want to give you the name of it and explain that because that opens up a whole dialogue but just realize that the body’s shifting to a different way that it metabolizes energy it’s going to now run on pure sugar or glutamine which is a very specific type of an amino acid okay these are the two types of fuel now the thing that’s interesting with cancer is it spreads and follows areas of inflammation so it actually gravitates to areas of old injury as well or areas where you had trauma which is another interesting thing so cancer basically lives on sugar and it can also live on this protein but in Alzheimer’s there’s just no sugar to live on anymore the body can’t receive it so we have like a severe state of insulin resistance they don’t really know exactly what happens but my guess is that the blood-brain barrier is so insulin resistant the fuel can’t get into the brain of course another mode of fuel would be ketones but they don’t really tell you about that because then you can actually the cells can take up ketones and they don’t really need the glucose then we have something called autoimmune okay where the body is developing antibodies which are against itself so you have a situation where our own immune system is attacking our own organs or glands now that’s weird isn’t it and it’s an inflammation as a result from this immune war that creates the collateral damage like in rheumatoid arthritis for example or MS you have your own body is destroying everything in its path way now there’s many different theories as to the cause of this but it makes sense that the body is trying to kill something off that it doesn’t need like some microbe or something that shouldn’t be there and there’s this misdirection and the body ends up attacking itself now another interesting point about autoimmune is there’s usually always in a stress event that occurs right before a person develops these antibodies which is interesting the loss of a loved one they have this trauma and then they get this autoimmune disease okay it’s just an interesting point so I think what’s happening it’s an overwhelming stress to this entire system usually probably the adrenal glands and then there’s some loss of control there and the body tags the wrong thing that’s what I think that’s happening I don’t know it’s it’s just my guess at that but an autoimmune you also have amyloid plaque II know there’s a condition called amyloidosis in which this plaquing okay goes into different organs like the kidney the liver the heart the pancreas cell okay and that’s what actually can even cause diabetes as well so again a common thing is this protein proteins involved in autoimmune there’s protein involved in heart disease there’s protein clacking involving Alzheimer’s so it’s it’s another common thread and you have of course inflammation inflammation is like the the common theme between all of these conditions alright so I’m gonna give you some key things six things that you can do based on this data to kind of prevent these issues number one you want to eat foods that give protective factors okay there are certain foods like cruciferous for example that can actually protect the mitochondria there’s foods high in vitamin b1 that protect the mitochondria especially from diabetes and blood sugar issues there are foods like vitamin C there are antioxidants that protect the heart vitamin E to protect this right here there are foods that protect the brain there are foods that protect the immune system okay so you want to start eating foods cruciferous grass-fed foods with healthy fats those are very very important avocados cod liver oil for example it’s really good number two you want to keep your stress as low as possible so if you’re in a situation where it’s just overwhelming do something quick to minimize that don’t be in a situation where the stress goes on and on for months and months and years and years I see that all the time because that could potentially set you up for this right here number three keep your Sugar’s low why because the high levels of sugar is what starts this whole thing right here and also cancer lives on sugar too much sugar can actually increase my packing all right so we want to keep the sugar very low do low carb that’s called healthy keto and the four keep your vitamins so you want to eat foods that are very vitamin rich nutrient rich mineral-rich increase the quality of those nutrients very important in protecting the tissues number five in termina fasting why because intimate fasting is the best tool to get rid of inflammation okay so you can at least take that piece of the puzzle out of the picture if you do if’ very therapeutic the body goes into an interesting shift in that it starts to heal and repair when you do in a minute fasting it’s fascinating you would think that if you stop eating so frequently you would go the reverse but it doesn’t number six gut health and this is the last thing I’m going to talk about because you have way more microbes in and around your body then you have your actual cells and it’s the balance of these microbes that can either really help you or hurt you depending on what kind of balance that you have and especially when you’re doing with the immune system you want to make sure your gut health you have enough probiotics you have enough fiber from the vegetables to feed the microbes to actually support a healthy immune system all right well thanks for watching if you’re liking this content please subscribe now and I will actually keep you updated on future videos

In this video, Dr. Berg talks about the common healthcare problems.
• The blood vessel starts developing plaque that build up with cholesterol, LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein), calcium. There’s a huge focus on cholesterol but doesn’t have any problem with protein or calcium even though calcium makes up this plaque. Before the plaque develops, there’s always something that causes it and that is usually an inflammation and damage in the artery wall of the heart from infection, free iron, oxidant, high sugar, etc.
• Coronary Artery Calcium Test – The best test for heart health and is way more accurate in detecting heat disease by testing the calcification.
1. Damage to Mitochondria from free radical or oxidants and all things called carcinogens
2. Shift to different metabolism – sugar, glutamine
3. Cancer follows areas of inflammation
• Amyloid Plaquing – It is a type of protein that comes from a damage to the brain, infection, inflammation, chemicals and oxidation. The body is trying to heal, protect or patch something up.
• The body is developing antibodies. The body’s own immune system is attacking its own organs and glands and there’s inflammation as a result from the immune war that creates a collateral damage.
• There’s always a stress event that occurs right before a person develops autoimmune disease.
6 Key Things to Prevent These Conditions:
1. Eat foods that has protective factors
2. Keep Stress Low
3. Keep Sugar Low
4. Keep Key Vitamins High
5. Intermittent Fasting
6. Gut Health
Hey guys today we’re going to talk about the common threads between the real big healthcare problems out there. Heart disease, cancer, alzheimer’s, autoimmune diseases, I’ve talked a lot about diabetes, we’ll touch on that a little bit and there’s other ones but these are the main ones. Let’s first talk about heart disease, what happens in the blood vessel of someone with heart disease is they start developing plaque and the plaque is built up with cholesterol and the person usually has a high LDL and that’s called bad cholesterol supposedly bad cholesterol. But in reality LDL is low-density lipoprotein. It has cholesterol in it but this is a protein and there’s this huge focus on cholesterol but not any problem with protein. If we take a look at a plaques, it’s composed of cholesterol, calcium and proteins. But people don’t say to avoid protein and they don’t tell you to avoid calcium either, right? Even though calcium makes up this plaque, they really target this thing called cholesterol. Now, the thing you need to know is before this piece of plaque develops there’s always something that starts it. And it’s usually some inflammatory situation going on, there’s some type of damage in wall of the artery in the heart and then it starts to build up and one of the best test to do for the heart is called a coronary artery calcium test. Coronary artery calcium test is way more accurate in detecting heart disease than LDL or cholesterol.
