The Great Cholesterol Myth | Dietary Fat Overview | Dr. Jonny Bowden Podcast #052

Despite the science, the dogma remains pervasive. Thinking that cholesterol or fat causes heart diseases is dangerously falling into The Biggest myth in medical history.

Armed with hundreds of scientific references, Dr Bowden shows why the medical establishment’s embarrassing, and outdated theory that fat and cholesterol causes heart disease is completely wrong.
You’ll learn the real promoters of heart disease and what you can do about them

This podcast is intended for anyone who is cautiously refraining from eating dietary fats because of belief or instructions from their doctor that fats causes heart disease and that cholesterol is bad.

This podcast episode reveals the cold hard science and cuts through the crap to show you the definitive truth all about cholesterol, dietary fats and heart disease.

Share this episode with your friend, relative, client or medical practitioner who is hesitating, even slightly, to consume dietary fats due to a dogmatic belief.

In this Episode we Discuss:

How Vitamin C was Discovered

The Biggest Myth in Medical History

Saturated Fat Causes Heart Disease = Non-Scientific

The low-fat teaching is based on the medical establishment’s embarrassing, outdated theory that saturated fat causes heart disease.

A landmark 2016 article in the Journal of the Americas Medical Association found that the true science was actually being suppressed by the food industry.

People seem to be blind to the new science of nutrition and deaf to its leaders, like Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian, dean of Tufts University’s Friedman School of Nutrition - the leading nutrition school in USA. He recently wrote in the Journal of the American Medical Association,

“We really need sing it from the rooftops that the low-fat diet concept is dead, there are no health benefits to it.”

The low-fat bandwagon has damaged public health. It was driven by an unscientific agenda advanced by the American Heart Association and the food industry, which sponsored the misleading food pyramid.

The 40-year trend of promoting high-carbohydrate processed foods perfectly parallels the obesity epidemic in USA.

Despite the science, the dogma remains pervasive.

Despite science showing that natural fats pose no increased risk of heart disease, hospitals still hand every patient a pamphlet recommending the “low-fat diet” when they’re discharged from the cardiac surgery unit, just as they have been doing for nearly a half century.

The evidence suggesting cholesterol causes heart disease is poor and non-existence.

It was based on flawed science.

While many studies have linked the intake of saturated fats to increased cholesterol, very few, if any, have actually linked saturated fats directly to heart disease.

This dogma has literally killed hundreds of millions of people pre-maturely.

Saturated fats, like those in butter, ghee, meat, cheese, eggs and coconut oil do not actually contribute to any increased danger for cardiovascular risk.

Sugar Industry Conspiracy

In a powerful exposè published in JAMA Internal Medicine, researches from the University of California dug up old sugar industry documents that revealed payments from the sugar industry to scientists to minimise the role sugar had in disease.(1)

In 1967, the Sugar Research Foundation (known today as the Sugar Association) paid Harvard scientists the equivalent of $50,000 to publish a manipulated review of the research of sugar, fat and their connection to heart disease.

The review was published in the prestigious New Englands Journal of Medicine, where studies cherry-picked by the sugar industry to downplay the role of sugar in heart disease…while blaming saturated fat.

For over 5 decades the public was misled to fear cholesterol and embrace sugar as harmless empty calories.

The low-fat, high-sugar, refined carb diets are now linked to both heart disease and obesity.(6)

These flawed studies continue…

Coca-Cola provided millions of dollars in funding to researches to play down the link between sugar and obesity and blamed lack of exercise.(7)

The Actual Studies

One meta-analysis by Harvard researcher Dr. Frank Hu, reviewed 21 studies that included more than 347,747 subjects which measured the associated between saturated fats and cardiovascular issues.

The people who consumed the highest amount of saturated fat had the exact same incidence of any cardiovascular issues as those who consumed the least amount of saturated fat.

The result: saturated fat was not a cardiovascular risk.

And there are plenty more studies…

A meta-analysis review, more than 150,000 people were evaluated for over 5 years.

They found that risk of dying from any cause was significantly greater in the group with the lowest levels of cholesterol (below 160mg/dL).

The group with borderline high levels had a significant decreased risk of dying from any cause, but it was the group with the highest cholesterol (above 240mg/dL) that had the most decreased risk of dying from any cause.

Saturated Fat Was Taken Off the Nutrient Concern List, Yet the Dogma Remains Pervasive

In 2016, cholesterol was officially taken off the nutrient concern list, but after almost 60 years of brainwashing, most westerns and doctors alike still consider cholesterol bad.

Saturated fat warnings still are invading the FDA’s guidelines, even though they took it off the nutrient concern list.

Precaution is still being advised by the American Heart Association.

Testing: Cholesterol and Heart Health

You can now ignore the cholesterol numbers on your standard blood test.

HDLs can be good or bad. LDLs can be good or bad. Those numbers don’t matter, it is actually about the size of the cholesterol particle.

  1. If it is big and fluffy, it is safe and cannot do damage. (LDL Pattern A).
  2. If it is small, dense and hard it can penetrate the arterial wall and cause inflammation and damage. (LDL Pattern B).
  3. HDL-2 are beneficial particles.
  4. HDL-3 are the undesirable ones - they are atherogenic (promoting build-up of fatty plaque in the arteries) and inflammatory.

Testing size of cholesterol particles

  1. VAP (Vertical Auto Profile) - size of the cholesterol particle.
  2. VPA (Particle analysis) shows the size of the cholesterol particles.
  3. NMR Lipo-Profile Test
  4. Lipoprotein Test
  5. Berkeley Lipid Particle Test
  6. LPP (Lipoprotein Particle Profile)

Now you can get these tests from the two biggest commercial labs in USA.

Test You Can Do Yourself with Your Old Blood Tests

To measure your tendency to have oxidised cholesterol:

Take your Triglyceride number and divide it by HDL.

If that is less than 2 than you are safe, and at little to no risk of insulin resistance (associated with blood sugar).

This has to do with diet, particularly sugar and high insulin. This raises triglycerides, increases blood sugar and damages cholesterol particles.

Other Blood Tests that screen for Cardiovascular Health:

  • C-Reactive Protein (CRP) - an inflammatory marker and predictor of heart disease.
  • Homocysteine - an inflammatory marker and direct risk for cardiovascular health.
  • HbA1c - 3 month average of blood sugar that measures glycation levels.

Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs)

  • Excess sugar in the blood will also glycate - the sugar and proteins in the bloodstream will stick together and clump.
  • These clumpy protein-sugar compounds are really bad, as damaging as free radicals.
  • They damage LDL and HDL cholesterol; get stuck in small arteries; and are directly linked to heart, brain, joint and circulatory issues.(5)

Another Test To Analyse if Cholesterol Particles are Oxidised or Damaged

Blood test: OxLDL - available to measure

  1. Oxidised LDL
  2. Myeloperoxidase (MPO) the enzyme released by WBCs which oxidises LDL.

Are Doctors Adopting Effective Diagnostic Methods Actually Based on Science?

Thankfully, it is increasing.

What Is Cholesterol

  • Primarily manufactured in the liver.
  • 80% of cholesterol is converted into cholic acid, which forms bile. Bile is the Pac-Man that gobbles up toxic fats in the liver and intestines, while helping break down and deliver good fats into the blood and lymph.
  • Healthy diet with whole food and high fibre will support bile to escort toxins to the toilet, but if the diet is low in fibre and loaded with processed fats, up to 94% of bliss (with toxins in tow) can be reabsorbed by the liver.(2)
  • The reaming cholesterol (20%) is used to form the more famous cholesterol lipoprotein particles known as HDL and LDL. These lipoproteins escort fats to and from the cells throughout the body.

Triglycerides are fats that are made from any extra calories you don’t use as energy right away.

Cholesterol Essential for Life

  • Cholesterol is the organic molecule that is most common in your brain (by weight) and a major component in nerve tissue.
  • It is the precursor for many hormones.
  • It is the primary component of all your hormones.
  • It helps your skin repel water.
  • It helps the skin on the inside and outside of the body ward off toxic chemicals as well as hold precious water and moisture in.
  • In fact it is so important that every single cell in the body makes it - it is in every single cell wall.

To think you can radically pull this out of the body (through statins for example) and not have consequences is ridiculous and is such bad science.

The Importance of Fat (Medo Dhatu)

The importance of fat:

  • Your brain is composed primarily of fat. One third of the dry weight of your brain if pure DHA. Low DHA in the brain and CNS = baby brain and post natal anxiety for mums.
  • You need fats for energy production and hormones production.
  • Your skin needs a cushion of fat so you look good.
  • In fact, every cell in our body is lined by a double layer of fat, which supports the cell’s membranes.
  • Fat is vital for life.

The way the authorities responded to this: “thus, the MRFIT study failed to provide an adequate test of the hypothesis because of poor adherence.” - But it doesn’t mean the hypothesis is that dietary fat causes heart disease.

A major study done by a Harvard Researcher, conducted by Dr. Frank Hue, took over 350,000 people and evaluated in over 21 studies and found that:

  • Whether you have the highest or lowest cholesterol, your cardiovascular incidents are exactly the same. Cholesterol numbers don’t matter!
  • People with higher cholesterol live longer - greater cognitive function, greater intelligence and greater memory as they age. People would die sooner with lower cholesterol numbers.

A study at the prestigious journal of the Lancet measured people on a high cholesterol mediterranean diet vs. a supervised low cholesterol diet and found that people on the mediterranean had a 77% reduction in deaths and a 76% reduction in cardiovascular death.

Butter Is Back

Relationship Between the Cholesterol You Eat and In Your Body

The cholesterol you eat does not have a big influence on the cholesterol in your blood.

Statins

One of the most widely prescribed drugs in the history of medicine.

Statins work by disabling a critical step early in the formation of cholesterol.

There’s a pathway that produces cholesterol in the body, along with a bunch of other essentials.

It is like a tree, the pathways feeds different biological functions in their individual branches.

We have decided that one of the branches is bad, that being cholesterol.

So we have decided the best way to get rid of that branch is to cut the tree at the root.

Statins inhibit the HMG CoA Reductase enzyme, which is also required for essential molecules like CO Enzyme Q10 (essential for optimal heart muscle and brain function).

Anti cholesterol drugs disturbs medas dhatu which creates asthi dusya.

To think you can radically pull cholesterol out of the body (through statins for example) and not have consequences is ridiculous and is such bad science.

Giving a child a statin is medical malpractice.

Measures to Potentially to Wean Off Statins & Medications

How to wean off medications such as statins?

Work on overall health, including insulin resistance.

Work with a quality health practitioner and then go back to the doctor who prescribe the medication and under their supervision, reassess your medications.

Insulin Resistance

Insulin Resistance and Metabolic Disease - More important imbalances that require our attention.

Insulin resistance is highly influential on cardiovascular disease and CV-19.

Testing and Measuring Insulin Resistance

An at home, free method you can do to test if you are insulin resistance. (approx. 95% accuracy rate)

What Oils and Fats to Eat and Use in Diet

Saturated Fats

Saturated fats are those that are basically solid at room temperature.

  • They are solid because they are more stable - no weak double-bonds that you find in mono-saturated (one double-bond) and poly-unsaturated fats (many double-bonds).
  • As a result, these fats can stand up to cooking at high heat much better than unsaturated fats, because there are no weak double-bonds to break.
  • Once the bonds break, the oil has a greater risk of going rancid and becoming the toxic substance known as free radicals.
  • Saturated fats don’t break down in your body like other fats may.

Cheap polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs)

  1. PUFAs are made from pressing oil out of seeds, grains and beans like sunflower, safflower, corn, or soybeans, which is only possible with extremely high pressure, heat and a multimillion dollar seed oil press.
  2. The oil in these seeds, grains and beans are very volatile. They quickly and easily turn rancid from sunlight or heat.
  3. These bottles of cooking oil have been heated to high temperatures, degummed, refined, bleached, boiled and deodorised (because they smell so bad after processing), leaving them indigestive with no nutritional value.
  4. RBD is a term (refined, bleached, deodorised) which leaves the oil colourless, odourless and tasteless.
  5. In addition, valuable beneficial ingredients (antioxidants, phytosterols, chlorophyll, lecithin) are removed during processing. The oil is now dead.
  6. Light sensitive - Now they can be sold 24/7 in clear plastic bottles in fully lit grocery stores, where they should be cold-pressed in dark warehouses and delivered in dark brown bottles in the early hours of the morning, just like they used to, and just like milkmen do.
  7. Liquid regardless of the temperature and much more susceptible to damage due to their weak bonds.
  • These vegetable oils are so highly processed and stable, they use them to preserve food and extend shelf life.
  • You will find them in your organic gluten free bars, cereals, corn chips, corn thins, gluten free organic bread (it can stay soft for weeks).
  • Linoleic acids are so fully oxidised that not only are they toxic and damaging to the arterial wall, but intestinal microbes that typically feed on essential fatty acids and fibber won’t even touch them.

Corn Thins may seem healthy, but they contain rancid and toxic sunflower oil.

Fats and Oils in India

These PUFAs have replaced traditional use of ghee in India and contributed to a rise in cardiovascular disease (CAD).

A couple generations ago, India was known for having low levels of CAD-related concerns.(4)

Today, Indians use a highly processed vegetable ghee called vanaspati, which is 40 trans fats, well known fo the increase risk of CAD.(4) This is fully or partially hydrogenated vegetable oil.

Processed Sugar vs Rancid Oils

Processed sugars will stay in your body for a few hours, cause an insulin spike.

Rancid fats and oils can stay lodged in places like your liver and fat cells for years!

If you have belly fat, fat in your hips or cellulite, you got to avoid these vegetable oils if you want to loose that, not to mention the risks of arterial health issues!

Smoke Point - Crucial Consideration

  • When the oil is heated and begins to oxidise and release toxic compounds.
  • A smoke point chart can be misleading because the more refined and processed the oil, the higher the smoke point.
  • Using the oil with the highest smoke point like almond, sunflower or avocado does not take into consideration how highly refined these oils may be.
  • Unsaturated fats or vegetables oils will generally have a higher smoke or flash point because they are the most refined compared to the more stable saturated fats.
  • Ghee has the highest smoke point of all oils, thus is a very stable oil.

Bad Fats: Processed vegetable oils that are toxic

  • canola
  • soybean oil - introduced heavily in the early 1900s
  • cotton seed
  • sunflower oil
  • peanut oil
  • corn
  • grapeseed
  • safflower
  • rice bran
  • fake butter spreads like margarine.

Good Fats:

  • Ghee.
  • coconut oil.
  • Malaysian palm oil.
  • palm kernel oil.
  • cacao oil.
  • shea nut oil.
  • butter.
  • avocado oil.
  • macadamia nut oil.

These are the most heat tolerant oils.

  • Ghee - 47.8 saturated fat.
  • Good fats lower triglyceride levels.
  • Plant-based omega-3 fatty acids - chia, flax and walnuts.

Omega 6 : Omega 3 Ratio

Today, the average American has an omega-6-to-omega-3 ratio of 20:1.

This increased ratio has been linked to a host of chronic health concerns, including obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular issues.

We cannot just increase out omega 3s, ie. it’s not just about the ratio, we need to reduce our omega 6s.

How Much Fats / Oils Can I Eat?

What If I Don't Have Gallbladder?

Optimal Diet

  • Macro nutrient ratios - transcend them, stop focusing too much on amounts.
  • Cyclical ketosis.
  • Simplify diet: eat real food (whole foods), seasonal food, etc.
  • See Vital Veda's online course on Ayurvedic Nutrition for a holistic, simple and effective nutrition protocol.

Energy, Fatigue & Auto-Immunity | Dr. Paul Anderson Podcast #051

Your energy levels are foundational to any health condition or state.

We’re not only talking physical energy levels and fatigue, but also cellular energy - having the energy to perform all the crucial biological functions.

Optimal energy for efficient cellular repair, replacement and anti-aging effort through preventing disease.

Auto-Immunity is on the rise as our intelligence becomes more "mistaken" and we loose self-recognition of our own bodies.

Luckily, there's a lot to be done to restore our bodily intelligence and harmony amongst our biological system.

About Our Guest: Dr. Paul Anderson

Paul Anderson, ND is a naturopathic physician practicing in Seattle, Wash., and Tempe, Ariz. He is a graduate of NCNM, and a full-time core faculty member at Bastyr University, teaching in the clinical science division.

Dr. Anderson is a recognised educator and clinician in integrative and naturopathic medicine with a focus on complex infectious, chronic and oncologic illness.

In addition to three decades clinical experience he also was head of the interventional arm of a US-NIH funded human research trial using IV Vitamin C and other therapies in cancer patients. He founded Advanced Medical Therapies in Seattle, Washington, a clinic focusing on the care of patients with cancer and chronic diseases.

He is co-author of the Hay House book “Outside the Box Cancer Therapies” with Dr. Mark Stengler as well as a co-author with Jack Canfield in the anthology “Success Breakthroughs” and the author of his latest book, Cancer: The Journey from Diagnosis to Empowerment.

He is a frequent CME speaker and writer and has extended his educational outreach through his website. Former positions include professor of Pharmacology and Clinical Medicine at Bastyr University and Chief of IV Services for Bastyr Oncology Research Center.


In this Episode we Discuss:

Energy Levels & Fatigue

A morning practice to change your brain circuits to influence your energy levels for the day.

Global energy of depression due to Covid-19

Similar to chronic ill patients and later stages of cancer patients.

People who get energetically affected by what’s going on around them.

Having energy “sucked out” of you

Practitioners and doctors having energy “sucked out” of them and how to get yourself in a centred place so you can interact with a lot of strong energies without being affected by them.

Energetic Recognition and Protecting Yourself

Where Does Energy Come From:

Energy is generated in the most metabolising cells:

  1. Heart - the heart has so many mitochondria so it puts out this huge energy signature. 5000 mitochondria per cell, even if you don’t work out a lot. Your heart never gets a break, it pumps till the body dies. You can measure your heart electricity from 12 feet away.
  2. Brain - you can measure the energy output of the brain.
  3. Muscles - Muscle cell have 200-500 mitochondria in each cell. If you work out a lot, maybe 400-500.

Also, abdominal organs are busy all the time.

What part of the cell makes energy - Mitchondria makes ATP (the energy molecule) then converts to energy.

Hrdaya - The heart as the energy centre of the body.

Pattern of Energy:

  1. Did your energy gradually reduce?
  2. or did it drop suddenly (such as cancer or auto-immunity)?

Metabolic Health and Energy Levels

Intermittent Fasting

  • Mostly a mental game in the beginning.
  • Powerful intervention for metabolic health.

What Causes Low Energy and Overall Fatigue

Short term causes:

  • Acute illness.
  • Medications.
  • Depression.

Long term (and acute) causes:

  • The people and media you are associating with.
  • Environment - mould, air quality, environmental toxins.
  • Digestion and absorption - not absorbing the nutrients and energy from food.
  • Balance of minerals / vitamins - taking a high concentration of one constituent may put another out of balance.
  • Hormonal levels
  • Thyroid levels
  • Stress

How to Keep Your Energy In Instead of Letting it Bleed Out

Subtle energies

  • Absorbing patients disease energetically. Being drained.
  • Doctors, OTs, therapists, practitioners etc.
  • Optometrists get eye diseases, cardiologists get heart diseases etc.

Auto-Immunity: Why Does my Body Want to Attack Me?

  • We loose self-recognition.

  • Pragnyapradah - Mistake of intellect.

  • Inflammation will invade other organs.

  • Immune system enters a hyperactive state after being exposed to toxic influences over time and acquiring an accumulate affect.

Types of Auto-Immune Conditions

  • Hashimotos thyroiditis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Diabetes type 1
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
  • Lupus - inflammation at various aspects of the body.
    • Tired.
    • Joint pain. Multiple joints.
    • High temperature.
    • Ulcerations or sores in nose and mouth, sometimes.
    • Sensitivity to sun.
    • Inflammations in the blood - excess or deficient levels of various aspects of the blood.
    • Rashes.
  • Scleroderma

A lot of people with low-thyroid have auto-immune (hashimotos) causing that, and don’t even know it.

What Causes Auto-Immunity

  • Orchestration of the immune system.
  • External influences that settle somewhere in the body, and the immune system goes to do it’s job to clean up the cells, and inevitably creates the problem.
  • Viruses invading certain areas.
  • Environmental sources.
  • Toxicity.
  • Diet - diet is a significant way in for toxic material.
  • Glycemic load.
  • Medical interventions - Such as modern biological drugs used to treat cancer. Modern medical interventions and drugs confuse the immune system and don’t allow it to regenerate.

Boosting Your Immune System during Auto-Immune conditions.

Treating Auto-Immune Conditions

Smriti can play a role in restoring the intelligence.

Bio-Films

Wet areas rich in biological systems.

They can get hijacked with pathogens, e.g. mould.

Aspects of Immune System

  • Skin - external layer of our immune system.
  • Respiratory tract - internal mucous membrane immune system.
  • Digestive tract - internal mucous membrane immune system.
  • Surveillance - Surveillance molecules (e.g. Killer T Cells) that look for anything that does not have our marker on it. Recognition molecules that say “you are mine.”
  • Specific immune system - Immune globulin, immune proteins, specially built to look for a specific cancer cell or virus etc. Humoral (anti-body) immunity - specific proteins against specific bad guys.

To Get Vxcinated or Not? Become Informed About The C19 Vxcc!ne | Stephanie Grutz #050

The Covid vaccine has arrived, whether we want it or not.

We need stop making vaccines taboo to talk about and we need to learn about them and become properly informed.

We need to use our judgment and intuition and while staying away from cognitive dissonance, make a choice based on our personal experiences and what we truely believe and feel is right.

How do we make tough choices? We learn as much as we can and then make a choice.

This un-biased podcast episode features health information from Ayurvedic health practitioner Dylan Smith as he interviews an integrative health practitioner Stephanie Grutz who has thoroughly researched the Covid-19 Vaxcine.

Leave behind our views and preferences.

Let’s drop the propaganda and seemingly “hippie dippie” views.

Let’s explore both sides and more importantly, the science.

About Our Guest: Stephanie Grutz

Stephanie is an integrative nurse practitioner with over 12 years in the field of medicine. In 2009, Stephanie was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and eventually diagnosed with Crohn's. She started down a path of biologics and steroids with deteriorating health. As she desperately searched for answers, she stumbled upon integrative medicine. She went all in, changed her mind, body and spirit and started treating herself holistically. Since 2014, Stephanie has been using her skills and experiences to help empower others to work towards their healthiest selves.

I chose Stephanie to be on this podcast because of her extensive, non-biased independent research on the C19 Vaxcine.


In this Episode we Discuss:

The Role of Standard Vaccines

The goal - to stimulate your own immune system to recognise a threat, before that threat actually shows up.

By exposing your immune system to a piece of a virus, the immune system can spin up a memory response so when it’s exposed to the real thing in the future, it very quickly ramps up anti-bodies and T-cells and an immune response and potentially knocks that potential invader up.

As opposed to when you are first exposed to the virus, it can take quite some time for the immune response to kick in.

Neutralising anti-bodies.

Ingredients in the C19 Vaxcine to Beware Of

  • PEG (polyethylene glycol)
  • M-Neon Green - a marine bioluminescent material. No studies are done on the safety of this technology. Can relate with auto-immune.

Pfzier Vaxciner

  • The CEO said this vaxcine was 95% effective and the next day sold his shares.

Pfizers Criminal History

Pfizer has been a “habitual offender”, persistently engaging in illegal and corrupt  marketing practices, bribing physicians and suppressing adverse trial results.

Since 2002, the company and its subsidiaries have been assessed $3 billion in criminal convictions, civil penalties and jury awards.

What is an mRNA Vaxine

mRNA vaxcine include Pfizer and Moderna vaxine.

mRNA vxcines are genetically engineered vaxcines so are associated with risk factors of auto-immune disease and auto-immune reactions.

Spike proteins in the vxcine are similar to what is in our body, particularly similarly to what is in our placenta. This may cause auto-immune reaction.

Pathogenic priming likely contributes to serious and critical illness and mortality in COVID-19 via autoimmunity

Therapeutic indications and General recommendations for the C19 Vaxine:

This is for individuals 16 years and older.

The safety for children under 16 has not yet established.

Special Warnings

Anaphylaxis.

If they have anaphylaxis the first dose, do not give.

General recommendations:

  • Should be postponed in individuals suffering from acute severe febrile illness. - (If you are currently sick).
  • Individuals receiving anticoagulant therapy or those with bleeding disorder. (Standard)
  • Immune-compromised people.

4.6 Fertility, pregnancy and lactation and the C19 Vaxcine

Pregnancy

  • There are no or limited amount of data from the use of COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2.
  • Animal reproductive toxicity studies have not been completed.
  • Not recommended during pregnancy.
  • Women of childbearing age, pregnancy should be excluded before vaccination.
  • In addition, women of childbearing age should be advised to avoid pregnancy for at least 2 months after their second dose.

Pregnancy is a time of protection.

There is no time to inject a compound that specifically triggers inflammation, specifically immune inflammation in order to get an anti-body production.

These vaccines are designed to up-regulate the immune system when pregnancy is an absolute time for immune suppression.

This is why auto-immune conditions are suppressed during pregnancy.  This is why some women feel so good when pregnant, because their immune system is suppressed so you don’t abort a baby - because you will think it is a foreign body and potentially harm it.

They give steroids to pregnancy women with high natural killer T cells (immune system) to regulate this.

Vaccines dramatically increased the immune system.

Pregnant women are getting the vaccine and some health care professionals are advising for it!

The Moderna vaccine excluded pregnant and breast-feeding women from the vaccine trial.

They don’t want women to try conceive a child within a month of the second injection.

They also don’t want males in the study to impregnate women from the time of the first vaccination till a month after getting the second injection.

Under 5.2. Exclusion Criteria in their reposer - modernatx.com

Breast-Feeding and the C19 Vaxcine

It is unknown where COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 is excreted in human milk.

A risk to newborns/infants cannot be excluded.

C19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 should not be used during breast-feeding.

Fertility and the C19 Vaxcine

It is unknown whether C19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 has an impact on fertility.

(If you are trying or planning to conceive, even in the distant future - the danger is unknown but suspected by science).

Understanding Diabetes & Blood Sugar, Self-Management, Nutritional Flexibility & Chronic Disease Blessings | Drew Harrisberg #026

About Drew Harrisberg

Drew is an exercise physiologist, sports scientist, diabetes educator, and most importantly, a happy and healthy guy thriving with type 1 diabetes.


In This Episode We Discuss

The Diabetes Pandemic of Today

Nearly 1 million Australians 

India - 1 in 4 have pre-diabetes diabetes! (14% pre, 9% diabetes).

Americans - one third of Americans (almost 100 million Americans) are pre-diabetic, and 90% of them don’t know it!. Moreover, many of them think they are maintaining what they call a healthy diet!. - Undiagnosed is the scary part.
~ Study by the CDC (Centres for Disease Control and Prevention)

Drews Story

Diabetes creeping up - Drew falling asleep in an important job interview and worse, while driving!

What Is Type 1 Diabetes

  • An auto-immune disease where your body mistakingly kills off the beta-cells of your pancreas that produces insulin (required to metabolise glucose from food), thinking that the beta-cells are foreign invaders.
  • Type 1 Diabetes as an incurable, life-long disease that requires high maintenance.
  • Rare cases to cure Type 1 Diabetes - regenerate the pancreas to be able to perform its function.
  • People with Type 1 diabetes have to administer exogenous insulin via injections or a pump to metabolise food.

Type 2 Diabetes

Insulin doesn’t work well leading to high blood sugar.

Insulin Resistance

  • Insulin inefficiency. An inability for insulin to do its job properly. 
  • Insulin is designed to drive glucose from your blood into a tissue, like an organ or your brain. It is needs to accompany glucose during the transportation process. 
  • Then, that tissue or organ etc. will use that as fuel: burn or store the glucose. 
  • Insulin is also the most powerful anabolic hormone in your body. 
  • + heaps more functions.
  • Insulin resistance is caused by the accumulation of excess fat in tissues that are not designed to store large quantities of fat. 
  • When you are storing excess fatty acids in areas like the liver and muscles - their ability to uptake glucose gets compromised.

How Blood Sugar Rises:

  • Foods > We explode with sugar into the blood stream.
  • Sugars (glucose) are digested, forcing the pancreas to produce excess insulin to escort the glucose out of the blood stream into the cells.
  • Overtime, the pancreas is worn out from insulin levels going up again and again and our blood stream cannot handle these injections of sugar in the blood.
  • Our cells and muscles become resistant. They cannot tolerate any more sugar.
  • It lingers in the blood, but the blood has to do something with it.
  • It takes the sugar and converts it into triglycerides, belly fat, obesity or engage in Glycation - where it sticks to proteins and runs through the blood stream and becomes sticky and irritating and congests and damages the arterial walls. Increases cardiovascular damage and risk and risk of cancer and clot risks.
    • Glycation causes damage to collagen and elastin - causing wrinkles but more importantly, damages the health and elasticity of the skin that lines the arteries, heart, gut and lungs.

“Legs of Lead” as a symptom for excess glucose in your blood.

Complications of having excess glucose in your blood (high blood sugar) for to long.

The "normal range" for blood sugar is not adequate. 

Fasting blood sugar: 80-120mg/dL (USA) or 4.8-7.8mmol/L (Millimoles per Litre).

Studies have shown above 85mg/dL or 4.7mmol/L makes you at risk for degenerative diseases such as cardiovascular disease. Digestive tract cancers. 

Between 70-85mg/dL or 3.9-4.7 is closer to what Dylan adheres to.

Anecdotal experience over scientifically proven studies

People with type 1 diabetes get a deep insight into their health with the vast experiments they perform on theirselves.

Ayurveda’s Approach to Diabetes

  • Managing Type 1 Diabetes with herbs thousands years ago before science created exogenous insulin.
  • Bhasmas - metallic preparations used as medicine in Ayurveda.
  • In Ayurveda, there are 20 types of diabetes an pre-diabetes mentioned, called “Prameha” and “Madhumeha.”

Controlling your health and control in general is overrated

The circadian rhythms of blood glucose and liver function

High Fat Ketogenic Diet and Blood Sugar

  • Short term can be good, long term can be a big issue.
  • Lack of carbohydrates in the diet means the body forgets how to metabolise carbs, then when it does, it is very problematic and requires a lot of insulin to metabolise a little amount of carbs (insulin resistance).

Lipids and Kapha Dosha involved

  • Intramyocellular lipids - fat in the muscle cells.
  • Intrahepatocellular Lipids (IHCL)  - fat in the liver cells.
  • Just like in kapha in Ayurveda and its relationship with diabetes pathogenesis (prameha samprapti).

Insulin Therapy

The potential dangers of insulin and the importance of accurate dosing.

Role of exercise in insulin resistance.

Exercise induced glut4 trans-location or non insulin glut4 translocation.

GLUT4 is the predominant glucose transporter isoform expressed in the body (skeletal muscle).

The importance of walking.

Drew can reduce his insulin requirements by 50% with walking 10-15mins after a meal.

Diet, Nutrition and Blood Sugar

Simple principles - Stick to whole foods, avoid processed foods, ie. anything thats in a package.

Moderation - not a clear message.

Metabolic Flexibility

  • Fat Metabolism vs. Sugar Metabolism - Two sources of fuel.
  • Being able to tolerate carbohydrates and fat.
  • Intuitive eating on a day-to-day basis.
Soup: one of the lightest and easy-to-digest meal

Routine with flexibility

The blessing a chronic disease diagnosis and adversity.

The Epidemic of Chronic Disease Calls Ayurveda to the Rescue #004

Listen on iTunes

Epidemics of chronic diseases are exponentially growing alongside our modern lifestyle.
Ayurveda has never been so relevant to humanity than right now. And what the 2017 Nobel Prize for Medicine was won for supports this, because it was won for “Circadian Medicine,” which is basically “Ayurveda 101” (living in tune with nature’s circadian rhythms).

Half of the men reading this will get cancer in their life. 1 in 3 women will get cancer. Diabetes, auto-immune diseases, infertility, premature blindness, autism, dementia, Alzheimer’s and more are all rapidly taking over the bodies of our population

Two big culprits recently on the block are talked about: Excessive exposure to EMF (electro-magnetic fields) and blue light. Dylan shares ways to mitigate the effects of these, from very simple no-brainer adjustments to bigger steps to be more proactive in changing aspects of your life to take control of your health.

Dylan also shares basic principles and concepts of Ayurveda.

This is a recording of a talk Dylan did in February 2018 at Bondi Meditation Centre in Sydney, hosted by Matt Ringrose. It was so well received he had to share it with you...

Turmeric: Highly Medicinal Spice & Essential Uses

Turmeric Roots

Turmeric (Curcuma Longa) is the most thoroughly researched plant on this planet!

And I don’t blame the scientists for the 5600 peer-reviewed and published biomedical studies.

Not another article listing countless benefits of turmeric, "I don't know where to start or what to use it for,"

Some of you may be thinking.

The bright orange rhizome deserves all these articles and documentation, but it can get a bit overwhelming.

In this article I will sum up the essentials and how to use Turmeric....

The average person in India eats about 2 to 2.5 grams of turmeric a day – almost every day of their lives. Interestingly, India has among the highest rates of prostate, breast, colon and lung health in the world. Some researchers credit turmeric for this.

The best part? Chances are, this spice may already be in your cabinet.

Turmeric has a vast catalogue of health benefits, but here is an

Essential Summary of the Benefits of Turmeric:

• Anti Inflammatory - best anti-inflammatory along with ginger.
• Mood Regulating - In one study, curcumin (the active ingredient that is so heavily researched), was shown to boost the brain chemical norepinephrine, which supports healthy mood, attentiveness, sleep, dreaming and higher learning.
• Curcumin also boosted the levels of dopamine – the “motivation” hormone that supports pleasure, emotion, satisfaction and locomotion – and serotonin, which plays a key role in mood, memory, learning, appetite, sexual behaviour, sleep, and many other functions.
• Protects Gut - Turmeric creates coating around gut area for protection. This prevents toxins from absorbing and will assist the bile in detoxifying toxins like heavy metals, parasites, pesticides, candida, fungi and more. This decongests the lymphatic system.
• Reproductive Nourishment: Breast milk purifier, sperm builder and nourishes reproductive organs.
 Joint Support - It can reduce stiffness and swelling and strengthens joints in cases of joint pain. People with arthritis should be eating plenty turmeric daily.
• Healthy blood - blood purifier, enhances blood flow and can thin blood. Supports liver function.

Boost Absorption: Simply Add a Little Black Pepper:

Researchers found that turmeric taken with black pepper – both common ingredients in curry – increased the absorption of turmeric by an astonishing 2000%! with no adverse effects!

How to Use Turmeric as Medicine:

  • Turmeric Powder is indicated over fresh turmeric because it is more purified and easier to digest. Fresh turmeric can be used but less than 3x a week in teas, stir fries etc. You may use fresh turmeric more if it is purified with limestone.
  • Add at the end of cooking - Curries, stir fires, meat roasts, eggs, dahls, salads, really any savoury meal calls for turmeric. Add the powder towards the end of cooking to savour all the nutrients and healing properties. A general rule is to add powdered spices at the end of cooking (except hing).
  • Anti-Viral Paste - Mix up this paste if a cough, cold/flu or virus hits you or when you feel one coming on. Step in early! Recipe here.
  • Meat - As meat is vulnerable to acquiring infections and cancerous bacteria, turmeric with its anti-cancer properties is vital to add to the cooking of meat.
  • Boosts Oil Pulling - Add a pinch turmeric powder to 1tsp of sesame oil and swish in mouth for a stronger anti-bacterial action and to heal bleeding gums.
  • Golden Milk - Mix turmeric with hot milk + other necessary spices. This promotes sleep, reduces stress, purifies breast milk amongst many more benefits. Recipe here.

External Uses:

Turmeric is popular among many beauty and skin products. Here are some home remedies and uses. Just be careful as it can stain anything it touches.

  • Disinfectant - Mix turmeric with a little ghee, butter or honey (enough to make a paste) and you have a paste to apply on cuts and wounds. Turmeric doesn't only disinfect the wound (it looks just like Betadine), but also heals it. This is a great mixture to have on hand in the first aid kit.
  • Anti-itch - Eczema, psoriasis, vitiligo, any skin condition or where itching is present apply turmeric + butter or yoghurt paste to cool down the skin and relieve the itching. This also heals the skin condition.
  • Face Mask - Purifying face mask to sterilise and draw out or pacify pimples, blackheads and oily secretions. A general mask to nourish and rejuvenate the skin.
    Recipe: mix 2 Tbsp chana flour (chickpea) +1 tsp turmeric powder + 3 tsps milk. Apply on face and lie down until mask dries, then wash off. Can also use as skin exfoliator before shower.
  • Skin-Cancer - Helps protects from and help heal skin cancers.

Properties:

Rasa (taste): Pungent, bitter
Virya (action): Heating
Vipaka (post-digestive effect): Pungent
Doshas: Balances vata, pitta and kapha

Summary:

Simply, turmeric should be used daily in your cooking (with a pinch of black pepper). Further, get to know its potent medicinal components more by utilising the powerful powder for home remedy medical applications.
