Vit K2: What Is It? Does it Remove Plaque? 2018
 
11:22
FORD BREWER MD MPH . PrevMedHeartRisk.com Vit K2 is a different chemical ( menaquinone) from K1 (Phylloquinone). Both are fat soluble. K1 is from leafy green vegetable sources, K2 is from meats, cheeses, eggs. Both are cofactors for gamma glutamyl enzymes. K1 is for coagulation, Clotting Factors VII, IX, and X. K2 is involved in bone and vascular tissue calcification. Large studies ( Nurses' Health Study and Health Professionals' Follow- Up Study ) showed minimal impact. But they did not differentiate K1 and K2. The Rotterdam Study showed protection with K2, and none with K1. I reviewed another study ( Atherosclerosis Jl 2009 VOL 203, ISSUE 2 PP 489-493). Authors Buelens et al. K1 was not protective. K2 appeared to be. But "protective" in this study means decreased calcification of the coronary artery. Calcified plaques are stable. In fact, the risk comes from soft plaque. Our goal is to find soft plaque and stabilize it. We know it has been stabilized by seeing increase in calcification.

Think that coronary artery plaque can't be reversed? Think again. Diet, lifestyle, targeted medications and exercise all contribute to treating risk factors and allowing our body to reduce plaque burden. Here is what worked for me. About John Lorscheider - John is a frequent contributor and moderator of our YouTube channel. He’s also a PrevMed patient. Like most of us, John’s family and personal history includes significant cardiovascular risk. He also developed the PrevMed Community Forum at http://forum.prevmedheartrisk.com/. John came from a technical background and spent his entire career in providing engineered fluid process systems and equipment to industry, as well as performing root cause failure analyses for his customers. His own study and research made it clear he wasn’t getting the whole story about prevention from his docs. They just didn’t know.  So he’s been in several roles of running prevention medical groups to help further the science.

He says he's actually reversing Alzheimer's. He's using well-researched treatments as well as less-researched treatments and preventives. Besides the science and medicine, he's got 2 major concepts: 1. this is functional medicine - again, some of this isn't totally researched. But let's be functional and provide anything that can help the patient; and 2. "36 holes in the roof"- there are at least 36 causes of dementia. Therefore, the "holy grail" of a single medicine cure - is a pipe dream destined for failure. Yet we continue to waste $ trillions on looking for that "magic bullet".

Serrapeptase:Ford Brewer

It comes from a bacteria in the Serratiens family. It is used by the silkworm to dissolve it's cocoon. But does it work? If you go to sources like LEI (Life Extension Institute), you get a great story..."huge potential", "no reported side effects". If you go to harder science sources you get a different story. Sources like ClinicalTrials.gov, Cochrane Library, PubMed, Medline were reviewed. The summary from these sources is "it's widely used... but there is insufficient evidence to support it's use." I personally wonder if the answer is obvious. Every other simple protein that I know is neutralized quickly by stomach acid when ingested. Therefore proteins don't cause negative side effects (except for patients with kidney diseases eating high quantities). They also don't cause their original effect, either. They are just digested. I'm open to hearing other evidence. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor.

Vitamin E Linked to Agressive Cancer in Mice
 
01:06
A paper published in Science Translational Medicine may hold the key to a better future understanding of how cancers and antioxidants interact. Some researchers have believed for a long while that taking antioxidant vitamins, which are believed to help boost cancer-fighting abilities, may actually cause some tumors to grow. Until recently they had no inkling as to why popular supplements like vitamin E and beta carotene posed such a threat, particularly to at-risk people like smokers who may be carrying an undetected cancerous mass. A paper published in Science Translational Medicine may hold the key to a better future understanding of how cancers and antioxidants interact. Swedish scientists from the University of Gothenburg used mice in the early stages of lung cancer to conduct their experiments. After injecting the specimens with varying doses of Vitamin E and a specific antioxidant, they observed that the cancerous tumors multiplied and became increasingly aggressive. They died twice as fast as the mice that hadn't received the supplements. It was observed that the vitamins had inhibited the body's natural means of combating the tumors by keeping the body's cancer-fighting gene from taking action. The scientists stressed that because they found this to be the case in mice, doesn't mean it's true in humans as well, but it is another cautionary tale about the use of supplements.

We go into the details of the process. HDL is critical to this process. It pulls the LDL out of the plaque. Endothelial cells then repopulate and cover denuded areas, replacing the intima. Immune cells ( mast cells, monocytes, leukocytes) will actually stop releasing digestive/inflammatory enzymes and cytokines. And, they will regress back away from the area of the previous plaque. And of course, the necrotic (dead materials) are cleaned up. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3209544/ About Dr. Brewer - Dr. Brewer started as an Emergency Doctor.

Iron, Vitamin D May Lead to Smarter, Healthier Children
 
04:01
I'm Alex Villarreal with the VOA Special English Health Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish Many people have low amounts of iron in their blood. But pregnant women need extra iron for their own health and their baby's health. Iron is important to the development of a baby's brain and central nervous system. In poor countries, however, providing all pregnant women with iron supplements can be a financial issue. Some experts say giving supplements to babies after they are born is enough. Someone who disagrees is Parul Christian, a nutritionist at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health in Maryland. She and other scientists have been doing research in Nepal. She says their latest findings should settle any question about the value of making sure every pregnant woman receives iron supplements. Iron is a micronutrient. Micronutrients are important substances that are found in small amounts in foods. The researchers first completed a study among poor women in Nepal ten years ago. During pregnancy some of the women received supplements containing iron and another micronutrient, folic acid.Ms. Christian says that study showed the supplements could improve child survival. Now the children are older. The researchers returned to Nepal and tested their neurological development. They found improved abilities among those whose mothers had received iron and folic acid during pregnancy and for three months after. Another new study looks at levels of vitamin D in babies. It says newborns with the lowest levels were twice as likely to develop respiratory infections as those with normal levels of vitamin D. Vitamin D helps build strong bones and strengthens the body's defenses against disease. The vitamin is commonly added to cow's milk and also found in supplements. Vitamin D is called the sunshine vitamin. The body naturally produces it from sunlight. Carlos Camargo from Harvard Medical School in Massachusetts and other researchers did the study. It followed more than nine hundred children in New Zealand until they were five years old. Dr. Camargo said the problem of vitamin D deficiency is not limited to countries with the least sun. There are low levels of vitamin D in people living in areas where there is a lot of sun. This is because people are spending more time indoors. For VOA Special English I'm Alex Villarreal.

Silent CV Risk: Triglyceride/HDL ratio
 
15:01
Most docs and patients ignore the important warnings from elevated TG/HDL. We review the cholesterol panel. We explain HDL and LDL. They are basically the same, except the LDL is more full on cholesterol and triglycerides. Here's how it happens: high blood glucose causes increased insulin; insulin shuts down fat or triglyceride burning; increased triglycerides are transferred by CETP (Cholesterol Ester Transfer Protein) to HDL - forming LDL; Increased LDL results in damage to the endothelium or intima layer. This results in increase MACR - or inflammation. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor.

PrevMedHeartRisk.com There are a lot of blood thinners in the herbal medicine list: garlic, nattokinase, ginger, cinnamon, cassia, vitamin e, Ginko Biloba, grape seed extract, cayenne, aspirin, apple cider vinegar, cod liver oil, etc. Most of these are antiplatelets, not anticoagulants. Anticoagulants have been shown to be more effective in terms of prevention of strokes. Safety is also an issue. The strokes we're preventing are infarction, embolic, or ischemic strokes. So, we decrease the formation of blood clots. Unfortunately, that also increases the risk for serious bleeding or hemorrhage, such as hemorrhagic strokes. The research has been clear for over 20 years that anticoagulants seem better than antiplatelets for stroke prevention. And most docs will go with the researched recommendations. These days the researched recommendations are leaning more and more toward the NOACs, the New Oral Anti Coagulants. I have other videos in a series on stroke prevention and atrial fib.

I have a lot of videos on that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qaoCYz405sw Diamond quotes Paul Ridker MD at Harvard in saying our standards overestimate the risk of LDL. I Agree. LDL is nothing in terms of risk compared to low HDL, or the big one- diabetes. Dr. Diamond knows that the exception is a genetic condition call Familial Hypercholesterolemia. We agree here as well. He says the genetic test for statin value is not very practical. We agree here as well. We also agree that lifestyle is far more important than drugs. Here's where we part company. Even the beginning part I agree. He says that ABSOLUTE RISK is totally different from RELATIVE RISK. He says he's offended that the JUPITER study reports RELATIVE RISK, rather than ABSOLUTE RISK. The PI of this study has been quoted many times by Dr. Diamond - it's Paul Ridker. I quote others on this issue. Here's the problem; RELATIVE RISK only translates to absolute risk if the incidence of disease is high. In JUPITER, it was 50 yo apparently healthy men (and healthy 60 yo women). Dr. Diamond and I also agree on this: I don't recommend a statin for 50 yo men with no apparent risk - no plaque, no calcium in their arteries, no cv inflammation. But for a 67 yo with IR, cv inflammation, hypertension, (many with a positive history of an event) - we have a totally different story. About Dr. Brewer - Dr. Brewer started as an Emergency Doctor.

How to stop genetics from causing you heart attack, stroke, cancer, leaky gut risk - 9P21, apoE 4,

There was a specific focus on 9P21, apo e 4, and haptoglobin. 9P21 is "the Heart Attack Gene" in the title of the book by Bradley Bale and Amy Doneen. Apo e 4 causes 10 to 30 times risk of dementia. And haptoglobin 2-2 greatly increases the risk of diabetes, but is managed by diabetic control and Vit E. Haptoglobin 2 2 even provides an explanation for leaky gut and other inflammatory diseases, such as Hashimoto's thyroiditis. These genetics, and the development of insulin resistance ( often due to 9P21) can cause major challenges in choosing a diet. Plant-based Mediterranean is the standard. But with insulin resistance, the carbs in a plant-based diet become more dangerous. Low-carb diets become a better solution. Unless you have apo E 4, of course. And you can't cut out both carbs AND fat. Protein doesn't give you enough calories. Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor.

Why Spend Money on Vitamins and Minerals That Don't Provide Benefits
 
03:56
Popular vitamin and mineral supplements didn't provide any measurable health benefits to prevent cardiovascular disease, stroke or early death, according to a new study. The study published in the peer-reviewed Journal of the American College of Cardiology found no helpful or harmful outcomes for people who took multivitamins, vitamin D, calcium and vitamin C. Results were based on analysis of existing information, mainly published between January 2012 and October 2017. There were some exceptions: Folate and other B-vitamins (B6 and B12) did surface some minor evidence of reducing heart disease risk and risk of stroke, largely because of a Chinese study included in the overall research. Meanwhile, niacin and antioxidants showed a very small effect that might signify an increased risk of death from any cause. Authors note that participants involved in some of the studies, might not be representative of the general population. So, consult a medical professional before tossing or buying any recommended vitamins. The study was funded by the Canadian federal government and by food retailer Loblaw Companies. Generally, vitamin and mineral supplements are taken to add to nutrients that are found in food. Instead of opting for supplements, it is advised to consume needed nutrients through a more plant-based diet of less processed food. Existing trials haven’t shown that supplements can capture the nutrients in the same way food does, said an assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, who is not affiliated with the study. These findings suggest that people should be conscious of the supplements they're taking and ensure they're applicable to the specific vitamin or mineral deficiencies they have been advised of by their healthcare provider. It’s important for people to tell their doctor what supplements they are taking to be sure of no side-effects or risks. Also, because most supplements are not FDA-regulated, it is advised to be aware of other substances that could be included in the actual pills. Instead of relying on a multi-vitamin, consider making important natural health choices at mealtime. In addition, vitamins and minerals from food sources are usually more easily digested and used by the body than synthetic vitamins. Save money by buying fewer nutritional supplements. Buy only the vitamins whose requirements are difficult to meet at mealtimes. This isn't the first time medical professionals have questioned taking supplements. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has said there is insufficient evidence on benefits or harms of multivitamins to prevent cardiovascular disease or cancer and actually recommends against taking β-carotene or vitamin E. In 2013, a group of professors at John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health told people to "stop wasting money on vitamin and mineral supplements." More research must be done to determine overall findings and they hope to look at links between vitamins and cancer outcomes in the future.

Vitamin/Supplment Safety Part 1 Vitamin E
 
07:06
The issue of vitamin and supplement safety continues to be a popular item in the national media. When you are confronted with these articles, keep in mind a couple of key points. #1 newspapers, radio, TV etc. exist to sell advertising space. It is far more effective to keep you afraid because you will be more likely to be drawn to the story if fear is involved. #2 Pharmaceutical companies make money on your misery. A healthy person is their great enemy. Let's jump right to the conclusion and for that I am quoting Michael Long, ND of Optimum Integrative Health. "Even with totally irresponsible use, you would be hard pressed to be killed by your vitamins... In truth, studies are published every day showing the safety and health promoting effects of vitamins, especially when used responsibly (i.e. used for a specific purpose, after objective testing showed a deficiency), and according to the evidence. If you want to focus on something that will actually kill you, open your medicine cabinet and look at the drugs that stare back at you. Close to 1 million people die in North America every year as a direct result of adverse effects from prescription drugs. The safety record of pharmaceutical drugs is not even comparable to vitamins." The European Union has put a number of the likelihood of problems from taking supplements. Their data has suggested that pharmaceutical agents are 62,000 times more likely to cause serious harm or death than supplements. To put that in perspective let's say that if one person died of taking some supplement or vitamin, at the same time the entire population of the Carson Valley in Nevada would be wiped out. If that doesn't convince you of supplement safety, consider that you are more likely to drown in your bathtub than die of taking a vitamin or supplement. I will divide this talk into two parts, one to deal with vitamin E and prostate cancer and one to discuss fish oil and prostate cancer. The topic of vitamin E and prostate cancer reverberates around the web from some "studies" completed in 2011. From this study, men taking vitamin E were 17% more likely to contract prostate cancer than those who didn't. Sounds ominous, doesn't it? Doctors around the country picked up on this news and told their patients and many doctors went on talk shows and had interviews with high profile TV shows to sound the alarm. This study used a form of E called all-rac-alpha-tocopheryl acetate that has little or nothing to do with natural mixed tocopherols that you get from quality supplement companies. The medical community at large continues to show a surprising level of ignorance when talking about synthetic versus natural vitamins. This doesn't make sense considering how much these doctors pay attention to detail when it comes to selecting a new putter. These same doctors would be horrified to find that their new Jaguar had its leather seats replaced with vinyl. But when it comes to selecting vitamins for a study, any cheap vitamin variant will do. Several sources have listed this all-rac-alpha tocopheryl acetate form of vitamin as having significant health problems. Now we can add another, increased risk of prostate cancer. So don't make the same mistake and confuse a natural form of vitamin E with its synthetic counterparts. It is also important to get mixed tocopherols as the alpha form can displace the gamma tocopherol that has significant anti-cancer properties. We have known since the 1990's that too much alpha tocopherol can be a problem. One study at the Johns Hopkins School of public health showed that men with the highest levels of gamma tocopherols had a five-fold decrease in prostate cancer. By selecting the alpha form of this vitamin imposter, cancer increased for two probably reasons. One is the reduction of the protective gamma tocopherol and also the action of a petro-chemical toxin. Remember I said that a healthy person is a great enemy of the big pharma. The FDA is taking steps to pull helpful supplements off the market and it appears that they are using these poor research projects as ammo to help promote this cause. At OVitaminPro.com our priority is providing you with confidence that your supplements are of the highest quality. If you are working with us, we will take great care to be sure that you are getting the supplements that will move your health in the proper direction.

6 Early Warning Signs Of Liver Damage
 
10:27
Here are warning signs that your liver is suffering and how to prevent damage. According to the John Hopkins Medicine Health Library, cirrhosis and other chronic liver diseases are common causes of death in the U.S. It also states that, on average, 31,000 people in the U.S. die each year from cirrhosis. So it’s imperative for people to look for signs of liver damage. #Liver #LiverDamage #LiverDisease Timestamps: 6. Yellow Skin or Eyes (Jaundice): 0:11 5. Confusion: 1:08 4. Muscle Wasting: 1:46 3. Abdominal Aches: 2:16 2. Pain In Your Joints: 3:17 1. Skin Spots: 3:43 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music Summary: 6. Yellow Skin or Eyes (Jaundice): Jamile Wakim-Fleming, a liver disease expert at Cleveland Clinic, explains that damaged liver causes your skin or eyes to become yellow because it allows bilirubin (a yellow compound) into your blood. If your liver is healthy, it will be able to dispose of bilirubin, Fleming adds. 5. Confusion: One of the signs of liver damage is if you begin to experience confusion. According to Fleming, a damaged liver can allow too much copper to build up in your blood and brain. This can lead to Alzheimer’s-like symptoms. She adds that if you’re experiencing this, chances are it’s not the only symptom you’ve experienced. Confusion is associated with advanced-stage liver disease. 4. Muscle Wasting: If you have an oversized stomach with swollen ankles and skinny/weak arms and legs, it could be a direct result from fluid imbalances that are commonly caused by a diseased liver, says Fleming. This can also occur around your temples and or above your cheeks. Fleming adds that these symptoms are late-stage liver disease symptoms, so it’s highly unlikely you’ll experience these symptoms out of the blue. 3. Abdominal Aches: According to Bruce Bacon, a professor of internal medicine at the St. Louis University School of Medicine, one common sign of liver damage is abdominal aches. Bacon says you’ll feel swelling or pain in the right upper quadrant of your abdomen. The reason it’ll be the right side is that the fat end of the liver is on the right side. 2. Pain In Your Joints: Fleming states that vomiting, joint pain, fatigue and loss of appetite are all interrelated symptoms of liver disease – mainly autoimmune hepatitis. This is a condition where your immune system attacks the cell tissues in your liver. According to the National Institutes of Health, this condition is more common in women than men. 1. Skin Spots: According to Fleming, if your liver is not properly cleaning the blood in your body, clotting issues can occur near the surface of your skin. Fleming adds that these clotting issues can cause large skin blemishes. How to Prevent Liver Damage: One way to prevent your liver from being damaged is to increase your intake of vitamin E. When making changes to your diet, you should also incorporate more foods like nuts into your diet. Vitamin E can help minimize the symptoms of liver disease, and nuts are high in vitamin E. It can help reduce symptoms of liver disease by preventing cell damage, according to researchers at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. Some of the best sources of vitamin E are nuts, wheat germ, seeds, vegetable oils and leafy greens. One thing you can do to improve your liver health is eat a diet that is rich in nutrients. You should also eliminate large portion sizes from your diet. Overeating can cause liver damage, and limiting your portion sizes can help reduce how many calories you are eating every day, which can help with weight loss and ultimately minimize liver damage. Monitor Your Alcohol Intake: Alcohol abuse is the number one cause of liver damage. The easiest way to ensure that your liver is healthy is to watch how much you consume. People who drink a lot of alcohol can damage their liver because whenever a person's liver filters alcohol, it has to work harder to filter it. Drinking large amounts of alcohol can also cause buildup of alcohol fatty liver disease. In fact, a study completed by London's Royal Free Hospital studied regular drinkers who cut out alcohol for one entire month. The results of the study proved that there was an average of a 15 percent decrease in liver fat. The study also showed that the people who cut alcohol from their systems showed cholesterol and blood sugar level improvements. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Subscribe to Bestie : https://goo.gl/tUqro6 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/bestieinc/ ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.bestie.com/

Cholesterol tests: does yours indicate danger? Which ratios indicate cardiovascular or diabetes risk

Please watch: "(905) Mitochondria: Central Role in Aging 2018 (and how to reverse it)( warning - geeky)- FORD BREWER " https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTKM0Lh078A --~-- Join the PrevMed Community: https://mailchi.mp/1224fb9e00e7/prevmed_community PrevMedHeartRisk.com In order to interpret your cholesterol tests, we need to understand lipoproteins. If fats and oils are released into the bloodstream, they would cause major damage if not for lipoproteins. Fats and oils would coalesce into large "bubbles", or emboli. These emboli would cause damage like heart attack if not controlled. Lipoproteins keep the fats and oils from forming large, or embolic, particles. LDL (Low Density Liporotein) and HDL (High Density Liporotein) are the same except for the portion of protein. HDL has 50% or more protein. LDL has 25% or less protein. HDL is therefore like an empty dump truck, able to carry fats and oils away. LDL is like a full dump truck, spilling and leaving fats and oils in the lining of the arteries. That LDL deposition is plaque formation. Other particles get larger and are with more fats and oils. These are called IDL (Intermediate Density Lipoprotein) and VLDL ( Very Low Density Lipoprotein) all have more fats and oils (cholesterol and triglycerides).

Bambi Able walked us through not only her own story, but some great comments about the science and her logic. Originally she said, "maybe it's not THE answer, but they are a non-toxic idea". That was actually my summary of the science; until John Lorscheider weighed in with science indicating that calcium might actually be more than a marker of plaque stability. It might, according to John, actually be like mortar contributing to plaque stability. According to these citations supplied by Bambi, there is some (although not very strong) evidence that MK-7,8,9 actually decrease calcium, and may even decrease cv events. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28797404 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19179058 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26295257 So, clearly further research is needed. But based on the information cited by John: maybe we should "let sleeping dogs lie". I agree. I'd also say that the big issue is getting ignored. Most of patients I see are focused on unproven supplements such as K2, meanwhile ignoring blood glucose and insulin values. They're "fiddling while Rome burns".

Mitochondria: Reversing it’s role in Aging 2018  FORD BREWER
 
25:06
WARNING -this article is for science geeks. It covers a scientific review article in 2018 on the role of the mitochondria in aging. The Free Radical Theory was actually first published in 1957. It shows how oxidation provides the power of mitochondria. But the resulting Free Oxygen Radicals cause mtDNA damage and decreases in mitochondrial function and mitogenesis(building new mitochondria). More recent evidence demonstrates mitohormesis. That's the fact that lower doses of poisons end up prolonging life by causing adaptive change in the mitochondria. Mitohormesis is still a work in progress. But we know how to improve mitochondrial function. Exercise (HIIT) and calorie restriction/fasting. About Dr. Brewer - Dr. Brewer started as an Emergency Doctor.

He sits on the toilet, almost whimpering because he can not urinate, but he feels he has to . How you feel you have to do it! And when / if you get out a little, it burns with the fire of ten thousand suns. Then you go over your cramped day and cramps and absolutely miserable. Drink liquids Woman drinking a lot of water for a urinary tract infection Drinking lots of water will help eliminate bacteria from the urinary tract. One of the simplest home remedies for a urinary tract infection is to drink a lot of water. This helps eliminate bacteria from the body. The recommendation is that a person drink six to eight glasses of water of 8 ounces a day. However, it is essential that you seek medical advice when deciding the amount of drink per day. Drinking too much can be dangerous, particularly with preexisting kidney diseases. Apple cider vinegar Apple cider vinegar is a rich source of enzymes, potassium and other useful minerals that can prevent bacteria that cause urinary tract infections from multiplying or growing. Those who suffer from UTI can use apple cider vinegar as a natural antibiotic to treat the infection. Add two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to a glass of water. You can also add lemon juice and sweeten it with honey. Load vitamin C for a healthy urinary tract Getting many foods high in vitamin C is important because large amounts of vitamin C make the urine more acidic. This inhibits the growth of bacteria in the urinary tract, according to the Johns Hopkins Medicine Health Library. If you have an active UTI, taking vitamin C supplements can also help, advises Kandis Rivers, MD, a urologist at the Henry Ford Health System in West Bloomfield, Michigan. Tea tree oil Tea tree oil has antibacterial properties to help fight bacteria that cause bladder infections, such as urinary tract infections. Mix 10 drops of tea tree oil in your bath water and use this water to wash the opening of the urethra. Alternatively, you can mix tea tree oil with equal amounts of juniper oil and sandalwood oil and rub this mixture in the abdominal region and in the area near the bladder. This is very effective in reducing the pain associated with urinary tract infections. Follow this remedy once a day for three or four days. Another simple way to treat urinary tract infection is to immerse yourself in warm bath water mixed with two teaspoons of plain yogurt and six drops of tea tree oil. Do this daily for 10 minutes for approximately 10 days.

What Is Vitamin E?  Why Is Vitamin E Necessary?  Facts About Vitamin E

What Is Vitamin E? Why Is Vitamin E Necessary? Facts About Vitamin E What Is Vitamin E? Vitamin E is a powerful, fat-soluble antioxidant that helps protect cell membranes against damage caused by free radicals and prevents the oxidation of LDL cholesterol. The term vitamin E encompasses a group of eight compounds, called tocopherols and tocotrienols, with various subsets of each, that comprise the vitamin complex as it is found in nature. Each of these different compounds have distinct chemistries and biological effects. Why Is Vitamin E Necessary? Vitamin E is necessary for structural and functional maintenance of skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscle. It also assists in the formation of red blood cells and helps to maintain stores of vitamins A and K, iron, and selenium. It may have a positive effect on immune health, protect against the oxidative damage that can lead to heart disease, have preventive effects against cancer, help relieve symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, and may help prevent some diabetes-related damage, particularly to the eyes. What Are The Symptoms Associated With A Vitamin E Deficiency? vitamin e deficiency Symptoms of a vitamin E deficiency include greasy stools, chronic diarrhea, and an inability to secrete bile. Traditionally upheld is the belief that vitamin E deficiency is rare in humans. People who cannot absorb dietary fat or who have rare disorders of fat metabolism cannot absorb vitamin E. In addition, premature or very low birth weight infants (less than 3.5 lbs) and individuals with rare genetic abnormalities in the alpha-tocopherol transfer protein may also be at risk for a vitamin E deficiency. However, a 2015 study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests that vitamin E deficiency might be more common than we thought. Those with metabolic syndrome, approximately one of three people in the United States, could be chronically deficient in vitamin E. Its findings suggest that while vitamin E appears to be readily available in the bloodstream of those with metabolic syndrome, it’s not finding its way to the tissues where it’s needed, resulting in a hidden deficiency. More research needs to be done, but these preliminary findings underscore the importance of this essential vitamin. How Much Vitamin E Does An Adult Need? According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the U.S. Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for adults older than 14-years is 15 mg (or 22.4 IU); pregnant women of any age should get 15 mg (or 22.4 IU); and breastfeeding women of any age should take 19 mg (or 28.4 IU). Dr. Weil recommends supplementing with vitamin E that provides a minimum daily dose of 80 mg of the whole complex, including the four mixed tocopherols as well as the four mixed tocotrienols. It should provide at least 10 mg of tocotrienols. If you can’t find that, look for a product with mixed natural tocopherols (up to 400 IU daily). Avoid dl-alpha-tocopherol, the synthetic form. How Much Vitamin E Does A Child Need? The NIH’s RDA and Adequate Intake (AI): Infants 0-6 months, 4 mg/day (6 IU/day) Infants 7-12 months 5 mg/day (7.5 IU/day) children 1-3 years, 6 mg/day (9 IU/day) children 4-8 years, 7 mg/day (10.4 IU/day) children 9-13 years, 11 mg/day (16.4 IU/day) How Do You Get Enough Vitamin E From Food? Good vitamin E food sources include vegetable oils, avocados, spinach, sunflower seeds, wheat germ, nuts, and whole grains. Risks Associated With Too Much Vitamin E Except for an anticoagulant effect, vitamin E has no known toxicity or side effects. There was a meta-analysis conducted by John Hopkins in 2004 that raised some concern about higher daily intakes, but this was most likely associated with pre-existing health conditions. Vitamin E in very high doses may interfere with the body’s ability to clot blood, posing a risk to people already taking prescribed blood thinners.

Should you take Aspirin? How do you know if it's even working - the Aspirin Works test

Recently the pendulum swung against taking it. But the key fact is this; none of the research has actually looked at a population with known plaque and cardiovascular inflammation. If you have either, aspirin will help prevent the process of clot formation. It is therefore very helpful. If you do take aspirin, how do you know if it's actually helping? Thromboxane is a chemical in the body that initiates clot formation by making platelets stickier. This video shows how aspirin and some other medications impact clot formation. It also shows how a simple urine test (Aspirin Works) can detect a thromboxane derivative. This derivative shows whether you are taking enough aspirin.

Vitamins A, C, E and Zinc were used. There is an interesting connection with Alzheimer's prevention. One of the common causes ("36 holes in the roof") is a high copper/zinc ratio. Given the fact that retinal tissue comes from the same embryonic tissue as the brain, it's not a surprise that zinc prevents disability of both tissues.

Micronutrient deficiency’s & early death: Bruce Ames' Triage Theory -Ford Brewer MD

He's credited by many for the mitochondrial theory of aging. He's got another theory associated with aging - the Triage Theory. According to Dr. Ames, chronic moderate deficiencies of micronutrients lead to triage of these micronutrients to the immediate life-sustaining processes. Other processes get supplied only after the life-sustaining one. Therefore, immediate life-critical process support comes at the cost of longevity. Chronic diseases take us early since these micronutrients were not available for long-term, less critical processes. Dr. Ames is no lightweight in the science world. He's faculty at UCBerkeley, and he's written over 550 papers. He's one of the top-cited scientists in the world. He's been on the board of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the National Cancer Advisory Board. He's won multiple awards, such as the Linus Pauling Award, the Japan Award and others. He's been a major force behind the recent discoveries of Vit K2, and it's impact in preventing artery calcification and cancer. What supplements does Dr. Ames use? I couldn't find that.

Longevity: TAME study funded! Metformin Trial for Anti-Aging
 
12:55
The TAME study was finally funded. Targeting Aging with Metformin aims to slow the aging process. It has been developed and approved by the National Institute of Aging and the FDA. The principal investigator, Nir Barzilai, is excited about changing the paradigm and getting big PHARMA to actually fund research for drugs for aging. Currently, PHARMA only funds research for drugs for disease - not anti-aging. What is it about getting older that causes heart disease, kidney disease, cancer, dementia and all these other problems of aging? Let's put the "splitters" (specialists like cardiologists, nephrologists, neurologists, etc) out of business. How? By stopping the cellular components of the aging process. That's where metformin comes in. It helps slow down the major biochemical challenge of aging: glucose metabolism. Enzymes like insulin membrane receptors, mTOR, ampk, and SIRT1 are implicated. And they are positively impacted by metformin. Metformin is cheap ( free at many pharmacies now). It's been used for decades. It's popular ( the #1 oral drug for early type 2 diabetes). And it's safer than you think. Some medical sites ( like Mayo) still incorrectly list lactic acidosis as a problem with metformin. But look up the multiple Cochrane analyses on this.

Lp(a) Caused Bob Harper's heart attack, It's PrimeTime Now
 
15:46
Bob Harper, well known fitness guru, had a near-fatal heart attack in his early 50s in the winter/spring of 2017. He announced that it was due to a genetic problem. Then he later announced it was Lp(a). Lp(a) is a genetic variation of the protein in LDL, which is formed by the body to keep fats and oils from forming large "fat emboli". Fat emboli can be seen in auto accidents or other serious trauma situations which result in bone marrow fat release into the blood. There has been debate about Lp(a) for years. A September 2014 article in JACC (Jl of the American College of Cardiology) was titled, Lp(a): Is it ready for Prime Time? Bob Harper's announcement put it in prime time, ready or not. Lp(a) has Kringle repeats hanging off the particle. This is believed by many to cause the increased atherogenesis, thrombogenesis and inflammation associated with Lp(a). There is excellent science showing that Niacin lowers Lp(a). So do other things, like estrogen, testosterone and anabolic steroids, PCSK9 medications and apheresis. So why don't most docs screen for it? In the US, the standards committees are not there yet. There's struggling with what's not known yet. All of us agree, however, that known additional causes of heart attack and stroke should be even more aggressively managed in patients with elevated Lp(a).

Basically it is a ring-shaped, 5 part protein. When the immune system starts to gear up, interleukin 6 is released by monocytes and t cells. The liver releases CRP as a response to the interleukin 6 response. Here's why I tell patients to ignore CRP: it's good for marking general inflammation, but not cardiovascular inflammation.

Maybe it's a common factor, like the mitochondria and cellular respiration. The reality is that we do not know. Cellular respiration and the mitochondria theory can be helpful in terms of both research questions and lifestyle, treatment issues. The functional item is what comes of the knowledge. What can we do to prevent or reverse early disease? For example, we know that there are many things we can do to decrease disease: a proper diet, exercise, and specific medications when indicated. There are a couple of examples: ACE inhibitibors and insulin resistance. We know that ACE inhibitors and ARBs improve insulin resistance. ACE inhibitors improve inflammation as well, so we recommend those when the patient tolerates them. Beta blockers have been shown to improve life expectancy post cardiovascular event. But one thing we often don't think about is the fact that so much cardiovascular risk is driven by insulin resistance ( est 70%). If that's the case, should we consider beta blockers that have a positive impact on diabetes? I think so. But this is often ignored in the hurried medical practice. If you're on Toprol or metoprolol and have cardiovascular risk and diabetes, consider carvedilol or Coreg. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor.

I continue to have a low level of overall average burden, or average CIMT of .68mm. That corresponds to an average 52 or 53 year old male. This is a big drop from my original reading of .884 mm in February of 2015. So that's great news. However, I still have a discreet plaque in my right carotid bulb, a small area that continues to stay large, and maybe is growing. The original CIMT showed a thickness in the area of 1.14mm. Now, 2 years later, it was measured at 1.6mm. That's not good. But it has always been heterogenous. That means it has some calcium and a thick fibrous plaque. The goal would be to get to a full-blown echogenic reading. That would mean more calcification, and a thicker fibrous plaque. That is more stable than a soft plaque.

PREVMEDHEARTRISK.COM L-Carnitine is known as a fat burner, a "jet fuel" for body builders. It's also known as atherogenic. It's biggest dietary resource is meat. When meat is ingested, gut bacteria ferment it and form TMAO (TriMethylAmineOxide), a known atherogenic. But there is evidence that it actually helps lower Lp(a). There was a strong meta analysis in Scientific Reports of 2016, using robust Cochrane meta analysis techniques. It indicated that there is actually some decrease in Lp(a). The "dropped study" analysis indicated that the strongest study may in used in conjunction with statins (simvastatin in this study).

To get your questions answered visit Dr. Rowen's website http://robert-rowen-md.com. Type in your search words in the search box. Dr. Rowen understands when to use allopathic, conventional, alternative, complimentary and oxidative medicine to help his patients heal and experience optimal health. Robert Rowen, MD, Editor Second Opinion Newsletter ozone, ultraviolet blood irradiation, hyperbaric oxygen valuable for healing and battle against microbial infections. Dr. Robert Jay Rowen, a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Johns Hopkins University and graduate of the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine is internationally known for his work in the field of complementary/alternative/integrative medicine. He is affectionately known as the “Father of Medical Freedom” for pioneering the nation’s first statutory protection for alternative medicine in 1990 in Alaska, against a concerted opposition from the organized medical community and an imported “quackbuster.” A few years later, the Alaska governor appointed him to a term on the state medical board against overwhelming opposition from the medical establishment. His appointment was ultimately confirmed by the legislature with overwhelming public support. The rare medical freedom he enjoyed in Alaska enabled him to greatly expand knowledge and experience in a multitude of disciplines and therapies not normally found in medicine. Jumping into alternative medicine in 1983 through a practice in acupuncture, he quickly expanded to nutritional medicine, chelation therapy, oxidation therapy, homeopathy and herbal medicine, and took intensive training in neural therapy and prolotherapy to help treat and eliminate acute and chronic pain. Alaska’s laws enabled him to work extensively with innovative cancer therapies, ozone, and ultraviolet blood irradiation therapy. He is internationally known and respected for training hundreds of open-minded physicians in these techniques from around the world. In 2001, he became editor in chief of Second Opinion, one of the nation’s leading monthly publications revealing the frontiers of medicine. Thus, he reduced his practice load considerably to write and teach, and relocated from Alaska to California where he works part time with his like minded talented wife, Terri Su, MD at her Santa Rosa office, Radiant Health Medical Center, in the north Bay area. He recently retired as the editor at Second Opinion. He is now teaching doctors and health workers world-wide oxidative medicine so they can successfully battle the emerging viruses like Ebola, SARS, and other dangerous viruses and bacteria that are decimating the population of the world. You are cordially invited to journey with him into the frontiers of oxidative and integrative medicine. Dr. Rowen has authored numerous articles and some of which may be read online at http://robert-rowen-md.com.

ACE Inhibitors were the original drug in the Renin Angiotensin Antagonists. They have a big long-term impact in terms of preventing heart attack. But they also cause cough in up to 20% of patients. ARBs were developed to accomplish the same thing, but without the cough. ARBS do decrease blood pressure. And they decrease long term risk for stroke. But they DO NOT decrease the risk of heart attack. ACE Inhibitors do decrease the risk of heart attacks. There are reasons for this. It is likely due to the fact that ACE Inhibitors cause increased bradykinin ( by slowing the breakdown of bradykinin). Bradykinin does many things to decrease cv inflammation, include increased Nitric Oxide and decreased monocyte function. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4033811/ About Dr. Brewer - Dr. Brewer started as an Emergency Doctor.

It is a summary of Ruhl's award-winning web site. She's done a lot of research for this web site, and uses this for her books. She's not a medical professional. This cuts both ways. She places excellent criticism of medical researchers, like the UKPD study, saying incorrectly that diabetic control doesn't preserve eyes and other tissue. On the other hand, the summaries of medications can be a little simplistic. She sees Metformin as great, insulins as necessary, and everything else as poisons. That tends to give no options for those of my patients that just can't tolerate Metformin. All prescription drugs have their problems. That includes Metformin as well as pio, the Glips, SGLT2 inhibitors, etc. She provides major contribution to low carb dieting, especially for diabetics and prediabetics. The rest of the world sees the metabolic advantage of low carb diets as great for weight loss. She and Richard Bernstein see a different issue; it's the key for diabetics and prediabetics to retain normal glucose values.

How to lose weight with Metformin: Pt2: PCOS, non diabetics:

That raises the question about expectations. Metformin appears to change the gut biome over about a month. The bacteria in the biome impact the appetite after about a month. But decreased appetite alone will not create weight loss. In fact, even with metformin, weight loss requires total lifestyle change. And patience. I recommend a low carb, plant-based diet for those that can use it. It has a positive impact on glucose fluctuation, hunger, and the hunger hormone ghrelin. Intermittent fasting and mimicked fasting change the addictive relationship we develop with food after eating 3 times/day for decades. Mimicked fasting also seems to have a positive impact on transcription and expression of genes critical to glucose metabolism. Even with the correct dietary changes, exercise is a critical part of weight loss. Resistance training and high intensity interval training (HIIT) are creating the best results in this area. But I wouldn't leave out endurance training for long-term energy burning capacity. There is a lot of lay press buzz about our gut biome (bacteria) has a big impact on hunger, and the amount we eat. The science behind this is growing quickly. It also happens that the science behind gut biome changes with Metformin is growing as well. In fact, there is a clear scientific case to be made that metformin actually has both a glucose metabolism effect and a weight loss effect by changing the gut biome. It decreases bacteroides species. And it increases e coli as well as Akkermansia species.This actually provide a helpful tip: if you:re not getting an impact from immediate release metformin, try the Extended Release. The Extended Release appears to have more of a gut-related impact than liver. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor.

Cinnamon: does it prevent heart attack, stroke, cancer, diabetes?

There is little evidence that it impacts cholesterol or HgA1c. But there are several studies indicating that it may improve fasting glucose levels. For prediabetics, it's the post-meal glucose values that are the problem, not fasting glucose values. In addition, the most recent Cochrane meta-analysis did not support any impact at all from cinnamon on any cholesterol or glucose values. So, why take cinnamon? It's cheap ($3/month). You might enjoy those occasional cinnamon burps. And maybe it will turn out to help. But if you do take it, you may want to make sure to look for ceylon, burmanii, or cassia. These are all really the same thing. Korintje cinnamon is different. Although it's not known, there has been far less research on this.

How Do I Prevent Blood Clots?
 
11:11
Blood clots (or Venous Thromboembolism [VTE]), comprised of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), claim more than 100,000 lives every year in the United States. Yet as serious a health issue as blood clots are, studies have repeatedly shown that patients at risk for VTE often don’t receive treatments known to help prevent them. Patient refusal of medications to prevent VTE remains a critically important issue. The Johns Hopkins VTE Collaborative is spearheading efforts to build patient-centered interventions aimed to improve patient adherence with venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis. We have created this patient education video with funding from the Patient- Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) for a project titled “Preventing Venous Thromboembolism: Empowering and Enabling Patient-Centered Care via Health Information Technology” (Program Award CE-12-11-4489).
