Dr. Berg: The Benefits of Healthy Keto (Part 1)

Dr. Berg: The Benefits of Healthy Keto (Part 1)

I am 26 years old and since middle school and I suffer from overweight and when I got sick with asthma at the age of 14 I gained a lot of weight because of the asthma medications that I used, especially cortisone I was suffering from sore throat and shortness of breath and could not sleep because of it.

Until my weight in the past two years reached 90 kg, I tried all diets and nothing worked for me. My friends used to make fun of me and tell me that I look old. I really looked like a woman in her fifties, and I became severely depressed, nervous, and tight. I was so nervous I hit my face and back against the wall and hurt myself. Sometimes.

My face was dripping with blood. I was nervous and angry sometimes for no reason, and I was crying and screaming in pain

My memory was weak. I used to study and immediately after studying, I don’t remember anything. I lost a college year due to asthma because severe asthma came to me before exams. All the doctors told me there is no cure so I went to the psychiatric clinic. I thought a lot about suicide and death because I hated my life until I found a clip for you on your Arabic channel in which you talk about keto and I did the keto and the result was amazing in one month I got rid of asthma, depression, nervousness and all diseases and my memory became stronger and I became healthy

And in 4 months I lost 33 kg and now I graduated and I will do a PhD in law Thank you dear Dr. Berg You saved my life I love

Want to know the best natural herbal remedy that grows wild in your own backyard? You'll be surprised as I was... take a look..

So my talk is about anti-aging it’s about getting you to live longer does anyone want to live a little bit longer okay i’m going to give you kind of some deeper reality on how to do it and i think you’re going to find it quite interesting i just have to find out what button that i press i guess i just press this one right here okay good so i’m going to talk about healthy ketosis the healthy version of ketosis but just running your body on ketones is powerful ketones by themselves put out more energy feed damage tissue if you have a heart problem if you have a brain problem anyone have a brain problem okay ketones actually can feed the brain even if it’s damaged so they bypass the glucose go right to the brain bypass the damaged heart go right to the heart um it’s an antioxidant ketones are anti they act as antioxidants they’re anti-inflammatory tumors can’t eat them and they give you more oxygen also they allow for your brain cells to regenerate anyone need a couple more of those so we have the benefits of ketones and then we have the benefits of dropping insulin which is huge in itself you don’t get tired after you eat anymore you don’t have to get up four times a night to use the bathroom your cravings go away your belly fat goes away um you think better better heart pro um less heart problems less diabetes less fatty liver the list goes on and on and on so there’s massive benefits of just dropping insulin now about a year and a half ago i just had a thought of a patient that i um had a long time ago that really struggled with her weight and i want to show you a picture of her cassandra and she was like 345 pounds and i thought you know i wish i could actually i was still in practice because i would really like to help her with this new information that i have because back then i didn’t have all had all worked out so i called her up and i thought you know i’m going to tell her how to do this i want to see if i can get her give her some help and so i said cassandra do you remember me she goes yes i remember you back to her i have a new way of helping you and i want to want you to do this and so i told her what to do and i haven’t seen her until today and she dropped 80 pounds there she is in the back sandra i was like i didn’t even recognize her you can see this picture the eyes are all swollen i mean it was amazing 80 pounds well done so thanks for coming cassandra and as i was talking to a lot of you most of you lost minimally 50 pounds i mean this is massive incredible there’s another guy stephen with 600 pounds he was here last year and uh steven where are you stand up yeah look at he’s like 235 pounds right now thing about stephen is that stephen basically um is keeping the weight off and he’s doing it healthily and he’s doing great sometimes when you do the biggest loser you don’t really keep it off so i mean i can’t imagine walking around 600 pounds but it must be a lot better so today i want to talk about the healthy version of ketosis logan where are you going you’re leaving you using the bathroom okay all right all right we’ll just wait till you get back okay now let me tell you how this really works guys when he comes back i’m gonna say and that is the secret of the keto universe and everyone start clapping okay because there’s always someone that leaves right at the best part so we want to talk about healthy ketosis what does that mean healthy implies better quality foods it implies uh doing it with nutrient dense foods and doing it with um satisfying all your nutritional needs so that’s really what we’re going to talk about but i really have to define what a nutrient is because most people say well nutrients are there to repair and promote the growth or repair but it i’m going to take it one step further part of the definition of nutrients or micronutrients involve what’s called a cofactor and a cofactor is a and that is the secret of the keto universe okay you’re gonna have to come back uh and find out what we said but you just really missed the best part logan yeah okay so a cofactor for nutrition is not just a helper molecule it’s an essential thing that without it something that doesn’t can’t work so nutrients actually assist in proteins and enzymes an enzyme is a protein what’s an enzyme it’s simply a protein that speeds up the reaction to occur and some some enzymes cause a reaction to occur just in milliseconds that would otherwise take millions of years so they speed up the chemical reactions that’s what an enzyme is now when you think about protein you’re thinking of maybe hair nails muscle right well proteins go way beyond that in the body they’re molecular machines so i’ll just kind of go through what proteins are in the body and the reason i’m talking about proteins is that these nutrients are essential in allowing these proteins to do their job they perform all the actions in the body some proteins are structural they hold things together collagen skin nails then you have motor proteins that contract muscles they move they swim your proteins that swim you have hormones that send a signal receive a signal so you have receptor proteins you have enzymes that break down food build back up tissue in fact most poisons in most drugs work to inhibit enzymes just fyi so there’s a whole universe going on i’m going to go deep into the body and show you you have transport proteins you have building block proteins you have defense proteins with your immune system you have a copy machine in your body that actually is protein enzyme copies the dna you have proofreading enzymes you have detoxification proteins so we’re going to go into what that means here’s here’s an example of a hemoglobin that needs iron so this is a this is just an example of a motor protein and it’s it’s basically carrying um a cargo and it’s going to be walking across the cytoskeleton so i think this is going to work we’re going to wait and see i have the animation here it’s too delayed i might skip it but yeah there we go so you can see that deep inside your body you have proteins that literally are robots and they’re doing all the work of the body and you don’t even know what’s going on but these these molecular machines um require nutrients to work and part of the um part of the essential part of this is especially we’re going to go after the key nutrients that you’re going to need let me just go to the next one here’s one a propeller protein and by the way the speed at which that was walking was uh i think six ml uh mill let’s see what was it uh i don’t know the exact speed but it’s faster than you could actually drive your car and it’s 600 percent more efficiency so this is a lot of fasting’s going on we have a propeller protein that allows things to swim in the body and move through the body see if i can pull this up yeah there’s these little machines going on these are all proteins okay here’s a pump protein i’m afraid to press it again so you’re able to pump different electrolytes through the body and allow things to work so these proteins rotate they spin they pump they create motion in the body and they also are structural so you have this incredible dynamic universe deep inside your body and if you’re not consuming the right amount of nutrients these things don’t work here’s one a receptor protein this one actually sends signals and actually actually receives the signal and forms electrical uh little impulses that cause the muscles to contract and relax so it goes in the receptor and then something happens and the body starts working creates a certain signal very very complex signaling protein this is what i want to talk about dna copy machine this is fascinating you have a very highly sophisticated molecular machine that actually copies the dna dna is like these two strands and there’s a thing that spins around that unzips the dna right there that’s the speed of a jet engine it’s so fast and it’s unzipping these codes these uh this basically the instruction manual of how to build the body tissue and there’s two strands and one’s going in backwards and one’s going forwards very very interesting so this is a copy machine this requires nutrients so i’m trying to increase your importance on of eating healthier so that’s the dna so you have the dna that basically um is has a you have a long strand of dna and you have little sections of genes so a gene is a small section of a dna and so the genes are like the the cd they contain the uh like the the playlist the songs in the specific order but it doesn’t really do anything it has to be activated so then you have this something called epigenetics which is means above genetics and that would involve like what you eat your stress sleep environmental factors that can turn on and turn off these genes um i remember for christmas one time i got this eight track remember the eight tracks and then you have the a-track player in fact that’s do you still have that in the attic i have to i’d like to actually see that i used to carry this eight track for christmas i got this thing on my shoulder and played this to play like eight songs it was so bulky and then but basically you have you have to be able to play it so sometimes people think that they’re defined by their genes they’re really not you can do something with your genes the difference between all of us is like one percent genetics i mean we’re 99 the same so the epigenetics will greatly influence what these genes manifest or express which means turn on or activate so that’s why i wanted to kind of just differentiate the two and then we have this uh copy machine that copies the dna and it’s then sent outside the center of the cell the nucleus which is highly protective it swims along into a protein factory called the ribosome that’s the factory that builds the protein hair nails hormones all these things so it goes in there and this little factory starts assembling these amino acids these building blocks of proteins in a certain order and to start making tissue see if i could show you so there goes the rna the copy of the dna just one strand and it’s looking for the factory there it goes boom and now the that robinson’s going to read it and then start assembling the chains of protein the raw material what happens when those assembly uh and it’s very important that there’s no errors so we have this assembly of these uh sequences that then have to be activated and it’s called protein folding where they turn 3d yeah there we go now it’s going to fold in a certain shape now it becomes 3d and now it can work so that’s really what a fold of proteins the reason i’m bringing up folded proteins is that you have something called misfolded proteins and when it mispoles it dysfunctionally gets all sticky and it clogs things up and it’s and that’s called amyloid plaquing it can get in your lens of your eye in the pancreas and the liver and the brain and that creates a lot of problems but um it’s very highly complex you need nutrients to have all this work like zinc for example will help dissolve and misfold the protein without zinc it kind of accumulates this is what it looks like very kind of a weird kind of shape you go from this code to an example of this protein and there’s a lot of damage going on like 60 000 you know pieces of damage every single day in every single cell so you have all this damage just one little error can create a problem with your entire existence i mean with a certain type of diseases so it’s very important for the dna to be stable and not to have errors i’m going to talk about what creates damage to the dna and dr mercola is going to also talk about something that creates damage to your dna a little bit later that is fascinating i’ll let him discuss that so dna repair so this is a fascinating thing there’s all sorts of things that can happen with your dna um you start breaking down these chains and then what happens that you can break down like one little chain double it’s called a double strand you break those down and it breaks through things in your environment and then you have a a repair mechanism that comes in there scans for errors and basically fixes them very fast and they actually have a little glue and cement in there that commence the right little coat in there it’s just miraculous that’s going on very fast without your being aware of it so you have two sets of proofreading enzyme and proteins that scan the dna that look for errors normally there’s one error every 10 million sections and then after the repair unit comes in we have one error and a billion i mean when i did my book i had someone that was really good at proofreading and um she went through the book 12 times and you will not find one error in my book by the way so mine’s like it’s like air free if you find one heir i will give you the book for free now what can destroy this these genes what could destroy the dna well free radicals so what’s a free radical very simply if you can envision a a disc spinning on a little plate spinning on something and it has two little weights on it those are electrons spinning around an atom because a free radical is an unpaired electron so you have this little let’s say this spinning thing and you have two weights and you take off one it’s going to start to become asymmetrical and start spinning off and creating damage to the other parts of the tissue the dna the genes it starts destroying things because it’s looking to rob an electron from something else to stabilize it so it’s kind of like a criminal because it’s it’s not exchanging anything back it’s just taking things and making other things unstable and then that’s what antioxidants come in and donate they’re a giver they donate electron to stabilize these free radicals the problem sometimes when you look at the studies for antioxidants these synthetic antioxidants they found that increases risk of cancer which is interesting because here’s the problem once that an antioxidant donates an electron it’s unstable it becomes more of an oxidant sometimes and now it has to borrow from someone else this is why like antioxidant comes in networks so it can borrow from this one this and this nature but when you take them synthetically in a pill they don’t really work that well because they become an oxidant so that’s why food is the best way to do it oxidation this is a really important concept originally is meant to add an oxygen to something and then you lose an electron and it becomes a free radical and it can create damage so if you’re i you’re eating an apple which you should be eating apple and it’ll turn brown that’s oxidation add some lemon juice before that antioxidant it doesn’t turn brown very simply and also exposing oxygen to iron gives you rust so that would be an example of oxidation but now the definition expanded to include other reactions that don’t involve oxygen there’s two types of dandy two types of oxidants things out in the environment and there’s also your own body makes oxidants like hydrogen peroxide for example your body makes that for various reasons so and then your body has internal antioxidants to it makes antioxidants and also comes from the environment and when the scale well and then ketones are antioxidants so well let me let’s get into the next part estrogen also acts as an uh as an antioxidant this is why women live longer because they have more estrogen and unfortunately men don’t have estrogen or fortunately and what happens is you have this situation where they can it can protect the cells from too much damage so they will probably live another i would say was it 10 15 years longer could be less now too much estrogen can can shorten your life as well so when the when the scale tips when you have too much oxidation versus antioxidants then you have what’s called oxidative stress okay that’s what that’s that’s what that’s what’s behind the degenerative disorders alzheimer’s and diabetes and things like that so it’s all about building up your antioxidant networks and protecting yourself inflammation so um every single disease especially chronic has inflammation associated with it it’s an immune reaction to either a microbe or an injury and cancer interestingly it spreads into areas of inflammation and even old injuries and i know i’ve observed this in practice i was people get cancer i said you ever have an injury in that area and they go yeah one guy fell upside down on his head and he created some brain damage in the brain stem he gets cancer in there so cancer tends to spread in areas of inflammation immune over reaction to a microbe food or an injury the problem with inflammation it creates a lot of collateral damage especially in autoimmune diseases so if you could just get rid of that inflammation you can really cut down the long the long-term effects that’s why intermittent fasting is so powerful and that’s why ketones are so powerful because ketones act too as an anti-inflammatory intermittent fasting does and so together you just drop your inflammation ketones are anti-inflammatory glucose is probably uh one of the top oxidators and this is why ketosis is so important because you’re basically cutting down the glucose you’re cutting down the carbs the excess glucose and that creates a lot of oxidative stress and it starts destroying the body this is at the top of the list right here now i talked about folding of proteins and misfolding of proteins the name for that would be advanced glycation end products i don’t want to give you these too many words but it’s called ages and basically it’s a combination of a glucose with a protein or a glucose with the fat and they mesh together and they become real sticky and they don’t work anymore and they form these uh plaquing pieces of tissue that are in the brain behind alzheimer’s it’s in the pancreas to cause diabetes it’s going to be all over your body it’s in the retina which destroys the uh the vision also the lens of the eye cataracts the nerves peripheral neuropathy and the kidneys which destroy the filtering unit glucose destroys four main tissues more than other tissues brain and nerve heart kidney and the eyes so what happens with the brain of course it actually causes the brain to shrink with the nerves these uh these misfolded proteins with the combination of glucose come in there and they start destroying the vascular system that goes to the nerves so the nerves die and eventually you get gang green the latin derivation from gangrene is putrification so you’re basically causing destructive dead tissue because of lack of oxygen and nutrients to that tissue that’s the effect now certain people get gangrene and go blind with their diabetics or people don’t and that’s all dependent on their defense mechanisms their nutrients because certain nutrients will protect you against the complications of the high levels of sugar so that’s really what happens so when you have too much glucose in your bloodstream before you even know it it started to destroy the inside from the inside out and it’s starting to affect um it’s clog it’s called creating bleeding hemorrhaging clotting at the small capillaries and the first place to note is notice it is in your feet or your fingers start becoming numb tingling and that’s what’s happening and then the arteries the inside the artery has what’s called the endothelial lining what’s interesting about that lining is that it doesn’t require insulin to be able to control the glucose so basically if you have too much glucose it just goes right in so that means you don’t really have a mechanism to prevent the excess of glucose like insulin resistance insulin resistance is a protective mechanism against too much glucose or insulin it’s trying to help you saying hey don’t need so much glucose but the inside of the arteries don’t have that so that’s why you start getting inflammation oxidation from too much glucose and it destroys the inside and there there comes the immune system the calcium the cholesterol and that’s really what’s behind the the artery problem and then the eye every part of the eye becomes damaged with high glucose um glaucoma that’s pressure in the eye that then creates damage in the back part of the eye uh you have the lens becomes opaque cataracts that’s all that sticky protein that gets stuck in there and then you have um even um diabetic retinopathy which you go blind because the small blood vessels can’t feed the nerve the retina which is the extension of your brain part of your brain is in your eye and then you have macular degeneration that’s the back part of the eye that become you have little bleeding centers and you get floaters and benfo to me i just want to touch on this just to show you the power of just one nutrient this is a a type of version of b1 it’s a fat soluble b1 benefit um and yes it is synthetic but it’s one of the probably the synthetic ones that i i recommend because it doesn’t seem to have any side effects benfotamine is a fat soluble b1 normally it’s water soluble which means it can penetrate the fat layer it can penetrate your brain 25 times more if it’s if it’s a fat soluble than the regular water soluble so it goes in the brain and it starts to protect you against the complications of the high glucose so benfotamine or b1 is a cofactor for carbohydrate metabolism in your mitochondria so if you’re deficient in b1 you get peripheral neuropathy you get sensory problems in your feet irritable muscle cramps fatigue leg eggs and even hoarseness because it affects part of the nerve the cranial nerve and so i used to use this in practice all the time it works like a charm to actually reverse peripheral neuropathy the point of bringing this up is that those people that have enough nutrients in their body don’t seem to have the complications of this severely oxidant oxidative problem with glucose which is fascinating the problem is there’s a disconnect in medicine they don’t really emphasize this nutrient disease model unfortunately they don’t look at that but ben photomean is great for the brain it’s good for the retina for vision problems with diabetics that are going blind other oxidants vegetable oils you know about this right omega-6 corn oil these are the top corn soy canola cotton seed all gmo very oxidative they’re very unstable fats an average american consumes 40 pounds per year of vegetable oils i think this is almost as bad as the glucose so you have the vegetable oils and then you have iron too not enough iron will kill you and too much iron will kill you iron is very reactive to oxygen and if you have too much of it and it’s hard to get rid of it so it accumulates in your body and it can create cancer cirrhosis of the liver it damages the heart it does a lot of things so the way that a lot of people get the iron is the fortification and the wheat products and the grain products that uh there’s four there’s three countries that kind of mandate the fortification canada the us and the uk and europe they don’t use the fortification and i think that is one of the reasons why people can even do some of the pasta and stuff without all the digestive problems in other countries and they come to america they just blow it out it’s the iron that just destroys the gut flora i mean it’s just crazy the amount of omega omega-6 fatty acids that are spiked compared to saturated fats and they’re extending that’s healthy it’s not vegetable oils and they’re not even vegetable oils they’re seed oils gmo this is a better oil there’s been some interesting studies that show the properties the phenols in olive oil can mimic the results of ibuprofen without side effects as an anti-inflammatory olive oil is really good to repair the tissue and olive oil the good stuff which is in probably greece and italy you can taste the um that freshly cut grass so to speak it’s like like a peppery it can even irritate your throat that means it has the phenols that you need i mean it’s sometimes uh i’ll take olive oil i’m like it’s just kind of it’s not the right stuff extra virgin i want it really fresh um big difference genetically modified what happens is these uh genetically modified oils or these grains are basically then they destroy our flora our gut flora is a different species and they they have a certain pathway that gets interrupted with the gmo stuff some of the studies that say oh gmo is fine in our bodies because it doesn’t interfere with different pathways well you have got a flora that does get affected and now you kill off those guys and now you can’t make protein as well and you have all sorts of issues down the road ketones are antioxidants okay dna damage you know this you know radiation um and dr mccall is going to mention when i’m going to omit it here a big one uv light air pollution all the oxidation things inside the body can create dna damage smoking garbage from your food you know this right but this next thing is very important it’s probably at the heart of what i want to talk about so you need to be sitting down for this if you’ve checked out just check back in right now because this is the most important part logan are you here okay good nutritional deficiencies cause dna damage bruce professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at berkeley very sharp guy he’s 91 years old still going strong look at this dna damage from micronutrient deficiencies is likely to be a major cause of cancer what this is like a game changer you even think about it a deficiency of any of the micronutrients folic acid b12 b6 niacin vitamin c vitamin e iron zinc mimics radiation in damaging dna what this is heavy bruce aims um he tends to change his professor profession kind of his focus every 15 years and he’s been around for a long time about 15 years ago he had a colleague that was studying um the effect of radiation on blood cells and he was looking at genetic chromosome breaks and so they had a control group and then so they tested just regular mice food with nutrition and then radiation and you wanted to see what happens and then one of the batches came out that was not exposed to radiation came out with all these breaks and destruction of the dna it’s like what is going on this is weird so he pulled the string and he found out that they for um the company that sold the mice food with the nutrients left out one nutrient uh take a while guess what that nutrient was folic acid folding so they left that out the deficiency and then they started he got it got really interested in it and they started studying it and they found that when you put it back in the chromosome breaks go away and you take it out chromosome breaks come back and then he did studies in humans as well so the importance of nutrients to stabilize the genome or your your genes is so important you know you would the problem with this is that it’s almost like um a problem of omission because you’re you’re not seeing it it’s like you could see yourself eating junk food or being exposed to smoking but having a nutritional deficiency you don’t it’s an omission it’s an omitted thing it’s like you don’t really see it because it might not be fully deficient it just might be subclinical so radiation can create the uh nutrient deficiencies create the same effects with breaks not uh even double breaks which is more severe and and he also said it can cause cancer which is fascinating because and i’m going to get into this a little bit more but why why do nutritional why could you actually why does this occur well because micronutrients keep the dna stable and that’s probably one of the most important survival things because one error can create a lot of problems so there’s all about the stability of your dna and your mitochondrion too so we’ll have to get a t-shirt my genes are stable i i do healthy keto [Music] these new individual nutrients prevent breaks repair breaks i mean it’s amazing like people think well nutrients are just about growing and building blocks no they’re actually in the repair cycle they’re actually preventing the brakes and not having them you get all this damage okay the rnas recommend dietary allowances they were developed to for healthy people to prevent severe nutritional deficiencies like beriberi ricketts pellegra vitamin c they were not designed or created to support long-term health or to ensure your dna was protected or stabilized and this is the problem right here so are we deficient yeah we are and even our rdas are just i think they’re just way way way too low 70 of people are deficient in vitamin d there’s other reports that it’s 80 to 100 depending on where you live and seasonal uh vitamin e 60 of people are deficient manganese 45 calcium 35 deficient vitamin a 34 deficient vitamin c 25 of the population is deficient in vitamin c brewsteans came up with another uh concept a theory which i really like this is called the triage in medicine what they do is they have a priority system so the most severe patient gets help first right and you’re not going to work on a hang now if this guy has a heart problem well the body does the same thing the body will ration out the nutrients if it’s deficient to only the most important short short-term things that are related to survival and if you have limited nutrients those limited nutrients will be you won’t go to the longevity genes and the longevity genes have all i mean it has to do with repairing dna so if you have a defect in your dna repair uh mechanisms you can accelerate aging and increase of risk of cancer or both so when you have a deficiency or a subclinical deficiency which means you don’t have as much you’re not necessarily what’s this i mean you’re not going to really feel it it’s going to happen down the road but it’s going to start to create an unstable situation for your genes and your dna so micronutrients help bulletproof your dna and again this is one of those things where what’s what’s what’s the first symptom of a subclinical deficiency in relationship to longevity you’re not going to feel it until you die right you’re just going to die shorter what is the symptom of not living longer i mean just don’t live long you don’t know so it’s very very sneaky because it’s not obvious you don’t put your attention on it it’s something underneath the scene that you’re not really looking at this is why the only really way to know this is to have someone tell you about it that these nutrients are way more important than you think and knowing what nutrients to consume in what amounts and the importance of if you don’t this is what’s going to happen so having micronutrient deficiencies will shorten your life and set you up for cancer how many what percentage of population dies of cancer it’s like 50 right 102 people what i mean this is this explains a lot because it explains why you’re flying home on the plane someone gets sick and someone doesn’t there the nutrient deficiency sets you up for susceptibility to getting an infection if you have enough nutrients like zinc vitamin d it bulletproofs you a lot more even if someone’s coughing in your face this also explains why some diabetics go blind and some don’t because the nutrients protect the complication of all the high glucose and diabetes also um even like people that have ms or autoimmune disease this also explains why when they take large more doses of vitamin d they go in remission wow what a surprise because vitamin d innervates every single immune cell it’s essential for protecting your immune system and reducing inflammation and many other things so these micronutrients are way more important than we think now logan um i think you left this last night you wanted me to check this um your stool sample uh normally normally basically you you just need to send this in because there’s a loud that evaluates it but you put in a container you want me to check this so i mean if you want me to check it i’ll just check it if you don’t know if you can get a camera on this can you zero and this i’m going to show you guys what gosh yeah we got the school sample there we go yeah it’s okay you’re gonna live he left he left this on the table i’m like it’s crazy just want to keep you guys awake okay um so micronutrients help bulletproof the dna um they’re very vital and uh my mom told me a story uh the other day of she’s his friend who’s diabetic complications going in for all these you know medications and stuff and she says marge you know you gotta you gotta live a little don’t don’t get too much nutrition i mean you gotta enjoy yourself you’re gonna die of something might as well enjoy yourself you ever hear that before yeah well she’s enjoying herself like with the iv with i mean it’s just it’s just okay so genome instability and cancer okay what’s unique about cancer cancer all cancer has some really unique things it always originates in the mitochondria which is interesting there’s always a damage to the respiratory part of the metabolism so you have this motor that takes the fuel in and generates energy atp well there’s always damage with that part of the cell and what happens you have a backup generator or a machine that kicks in as a backup mechanism it’s called the fermentation of just to keep it real simple it’s firm and when you firm it ferment sugar without oxygen that’s called um that’s the uni what’s unique about cancer so that’s the problem with that is that that system the backup system is very very um inefficient and it hogs up a lot of glucose that’s when they do a pet scan with cancer they’re looking for areas of like this massive absorption or metabolism of sugar so cancer lives on sugar and it also lives on a type of amino acid called glutamine but the point is that this is very unique and we’re going to kind of dive into it a little bit so we have this switching of this metabolism and then once it ferments sugar some unique things happen all that ox that glucose that’s being burned creates massive damage after more than even probably before but it just really keeps everything from from coming back you well let me just let me just go to the next slide why does cancer started in mitochondria and not somewhere else why doesn’t it start at the ribosome or something else well you have two uh sets of dna you have the dna in the nucleus of the cell which is highly protective that nucleus is like a volt and then you have the dna that your mitochondria actually has their own dna but they they use the nucleus but they also can help make their own dna the problem with the mitochondria is that the dna is way more susceptible and vulnerable to damage than the nucleus dna you don’t get cancer from affecting the dna in the nucleus it’s in the mitochondria so it’s obvious to me that it’s a problem because there’s just unstable dna and then that’s where we have a problem so now we come back to what i talked about before keeping your dna stable that is the most important thing so mitochondrial dna instability and metabolism shift to human cancer so we have an unstable dna and then boom right into cancer so what triggers that shift okay hypoxia low oxygen where does that come from one is injury trauma um also you’re gonna up a lot of oxidation from glucose that can create epoxia um inflammation oxidation radiation carcinogens viruses and vitamin deficiency it’s like a perfect storm setting you up for cancer hallmarks of cancer are this there’s zombies they lose the ability to commit suicide which normally should happen if they’re damaged but they become immortal they don’t die they live forever unfortunately and they take over they spread and that’s really what causes 90 of deaths from cancer is the spreading into areas of inflammation as well you have an inactivation of something called the tumor suppressor gene which is kind of like the breaks to making tumors you lose the brake pad and then tumors start growing all over the place you get unlimited growth division no limit develops his own blood supply angiogenesis so you get it on blood supply so these are the hallmarks of all cancer so again these nutrients are there to bullet proof ourself against this damage i hope you guys are starting to make a shift that maybe i should do more healthier keto and this is my objection to something called dirty keto which you’re just going to 7-eleven right you’re just eating anything i had someone say well dr berg you know we can’t afford all those health food i mean i can’t afford that i said well you’re doing intermittent fasting you’re not eating so frequently you just cut down your bill by a third right and they said well you know it still is too expensive so we’ll get a better job okay just so i think we should redefine the definition of food and just add a couple things in there food is that which is eaten to sustain life provide energy and promote the growth protection comma stabilization and repair of tissues nourishment so i hope this is starting to expand your viewpoint of nutrients it’s like you’re protecting things at the lowest level and this little link between the nutrients and longevity the nutrients and cancer is not emphasized enough instead they’ll say well eat everything in moderation there is no bad food group really who made up that okay i got 30 more seconds now what i’m going to be doing after this one slide this section is i’m going to be continuing this tomorrow morning because i have a lot more to tell you so i’m kind of breaking this up i didn’t know where i was going to end but um i want to just touch on this really fast vitamin d has everything to do with immunity the vitamin d receptors in every single immune cell it gives you almost it doesn’t even act like a vitamin it’s a hormone it’s similar to cortisol it’s an anti-inflammatory it works with the immune system helps you against viruses and it’s also involved in something called acute respiratory stress syndrome arts which is your where your lungs fill up with fluid it can help you protect against that tb epstein-barr virus hrv are real sneaky they have a strategy of decreasing the receptor for vitamin d and blocking it for your own body so they can take over so if you have that infection that could be why you’re not getting absorption of vitamin d you you’re more susceptible to autoimmune diseases big time most all autoimmune diseases have low vitamin d and also vitamin d is an anti-inflammatory so if you’re taking more vitamin d it instantly reduces your inflammation gets rid of the collateral damage and you get rid of your symptoms even if you have an autoimmune disease so it kind of goes into remission it’s not a vitamin but a hormone it acts like cortisol and it’s also involved in copd with your lungs being a problem i’m going to really stand track with time so i’m going to end off right now and continue tomorrow morning thank you so much and here’s karen
