Dr. Berg takes about the relationship between insulin resistance, potassium and blood pressure. Blood pressure is a potassium deficiency, not a a sodium excess. However, if someone has a problem with insulin, potassium is even more deficient.
Potassium is controlled by insulin. When there is insulin resistance, potassium becomes deficient. By spiking potassium in a pre-diabetic or a diabetic state, the need for insulin can reduce.

My question is if the vegetables are getting all the minerals from the soil and if the minerals are depleted in the soil does the vegetables grown in such soil has the same amount of minerals including pottasium in them as it is shown to contain generally..if my apprehension is true, want is the use of consuming vegetables which do not contain the minerals and from where do we get the minerals apart from expensive supplements.
What?? I just watched a video telling me that if I'm on blood pressure medication I need to avoid foods high in potassium and salt substitutes because they're high in potassium. Now this guy's telling me to increase my potassium intake? Ugh.
I cried watching this video Dr. Berg. Three weeks ago I suffered a mini stroke, it was the scariest thing I've ever experienced. Doc's said the combination of my high blood pressure and low potassium were contributing factors. I'm so glad I have found you and I'm grateful for your invaluable information!!! Thank you for all you do. I am about to order your electrolyte powder. Do you think the wheat grass would be helpful as well.
I take Lisinopril for high blood pressure and one of the contraindications is to eat foods containing high doses of potassium. Lisinopril is a diuretic but increases the potassium absorption by the kidneys and it can produce high levels of potassium in the body . I'm confused.
Dr. We have a friend who has low potassium gets K+ infusions and has heart symptoms. This person takes 9-12 potassium pills a day and has had chronically low K+ since her 20s and is now 42 yrs old. If you have any insight or suggestions it would be greatly appreciated. Her MDs cant figure out why her body is not absorbing the K+.
How did you come up with the daily recommended amount of potassium? I have some Potassium supplement (Biosorin) and one daily dose (one capsule) contains 400mg of potassium. It also refers to it as a 20% of daily intake. That's total 2000mg of Potassium - half of what you are proposing. Some other supplements also refer to a lower daily dosage. Could you please elaborate? Thanks.
7-10 cups is such a bad way to express the amounts you need to eat, why not say the weight? 1 leaf of spring greens won't fit in a cup but if you were to chop it up then you could get loads in there! the weight would not change in either case, so weight surely is better?
WTF THERE'S so much confusion. How do people really know what to do? Is 4700mg really for everyone? How'd they get that number? What happens if were deficient, do we have to make up the deficiency? How? Can the average person really do all this?
Hi Dr. Berg, Thanks for such so important information. I eat my vegetables around 4-5 cups but not so consistently. Can I take Potassium chloride 600mg to increase my potassium intake? Can I take it as a supplement? Thanks.
So what vegetables because according to lots of people not all veggies are good because they will spike the sugar? Everyone one here is some kind of doctor and a very body knows so who the hell do we believe?
Yes - the importance of alkaline mineral electrolytes - especially Potassium - is so overlooked! I've been coaching people in this for years, it makes a huge difference tending to your Potassium levels.
i do keto diet 3 months and I do all single think from your vedio and i am very very very good my body now but I lose 14 kelo now and my weight now 60 kelo but i have High blood pressure from i dring Vinegar before food one our please i need your help, what i can do?
Dean, likely because the MDR - Minimum Daily Requirements - are set so low, just high enough to prevent death & disease. Been buying potassium powder for years, now - cheaper & works fine. Best taken with Magnesium.
FDA IS NOT ABOUT HEALTHY PEOPLE! WALL STREET WOULD CRASH!THATS WHY I'M MY OWN ADVOCATE!!! ITS MY BODY!!! HOLISTIC MEDICINE! WESTERN MEDICINE IS TO BRAIN WASHED INTO WHAT FDA SAYS! NO THANK YOU! HOLISTIC FOR ME!
Maybe you could add a blurb that says "and for those of you that live in a small town with no Trader Joes or Whole Foods anywhere in your state and on a fixed income, you can take Potassium Citrate in the following manner...."
Dr. Berg, I knew you would have an answer. I just restarted my keto way of eating a couple weeks ago and one day at work this week I just felt horrible and felt like I needed to have my blood pressure checked. I work as a medical coder at a surgery center so I asked a nurse to check it and it was high. One of the doctors was astonished that my blood pressure was so high at 24 years old. He asked me a ton of questions for 2 days trying to figure it out. I finally made the comment that I thought I might be deficient in potassium and 2 of the doctors shut me down real quick telling me that couldn’t be why. I instinctively knew that that had to be it, searched YouTube hoping to see if there was a connection and was relieved to see this video! I started having an avocado smoothie for breakfast and upped my salad intake and my blood pressure is back to normal just in a couple of days! Thank you Dr. Berg!
Dinah, also consider magnesium - they go together. Most humans are quite deficient in both iodine & magnesium, btw. The fertilizers we use don't replace the soil's natural nutrients, just the absolute bare minimum to get things to grow. Our produce is deficient in just about everything but looks, compared to that of earlier generations.
But what do you do if you're on a type of blood pressure medication which combines badly with potassium ? Our dr told my husband to have MAX 1 banana per day because you can't have potassium with this drug. If the potassium is in the cell how do we test to see if we need it (and convince dr to prescribe alternative med)
Rob, there are many forms for all minerals. Here are recommendations from scientist Raymond Francis at Beyond Health. They cover most, though not every form.
These are the *worst* forms for bioavailability:
• Carbonates (e.g. calcium carbonate)
• Oxides (e.g. magnesium oxide)
• Phosphates (except coenzyme forms)
These are somewhat *better,* but not great:
• Protein Hydrolysates
These are *best:*
• Glycinates - gentle on bowels form
• Malates - energizing form
Watched your entire video and I've noticed you really are promoting potassium, but I wish you would include the dangers of too much potassium. I was looking for side effects, because I have close to dangerous amounts. I take blood pressure medication due to my IgA nephropathy, but it is not a diuretic.
Dr Berg eating 10 cups of veggies is way too much for me......I get full so fast!! Doing the IF has trained my body to eat less!!!! I do have a kale shake when I break my fast at 2pm.....but by dinner to add 10 more cups omg stuffed!!! As a 50 yr old woman I can’t eat all that in one setting, UFFFF!
I was just thinking that very same thing as I was watching the video. Whatever they restrict, eat more of. Whatever they encourage, stay away from. Note: supplementing high quantities of potassium is dangerous. You NEED to get it from food. Eat your veggies!
Thank you for this wonderful information. I've been taking Himalayan sole solution and Mg. I was wondering why my palpitations were not going away. I need to focus more on K instead. What a big help you are, Dr. B.
I had hypertension and took medication to sustain it for 2 years, but I started out this blood pressure plan “fetching komso site” that I discovered on G00GLE a few weeks ago. Medical doctor notified me blood pressure level is back to normal and I don`t need to spend money on prescription for high blood pressure level.
I spent only one month and a half following the suggestions in handling blood pressure level problems “fetching komso site” (G00GLE it). I have stage II diabetes, high Blood pressure and over weight. There is a need for me to pass through a D.O.T. Physical. My blood pressure level went from 155 to the natural level of 136 and my weight was 13 lbs lighter. I keep track of my blood sugar levels and it is now 125-130 compared to the last time which was always somewhere in the 160s.
The last part did not make sense - if insulin is low, potassium does not enter the cells, but then simply eating more potassium would still not force it in, would it? Or, may be, increased concentration in the blood makes up for the smaller effectivity of insulin.Anyway, thanks for this information. I have suffered from nigh time aching limbs when younger, and now have stage 1 hypertension, and on ARB. I have started eating a lot of lightly boiled greens lately, after coming across your videos, apart from doing IF often.....
Dr Berg... I have a question... I'm a 46 year old male who has recently been diagnosed with HBP and has had a TIA. I was prescribed a boatload of HBP meds which I whittled down from 5 to 2. I was interested in intermittent fasting 16/8 but was concerned that it could lower my insulin levels which you said could affect my bodies ability to absorb potassium. What is your opinion on intermittent fasting for people experiencing hypertension?
On today’s market there are many products with such orientation, but most popular is advertised brand Viagra tablets.
Appropriate tests show a positive result, which is about thirty per cent of all subjects. But here it is necessary to take into account the psychological aspect, since a positive result will not be at the unwillingness of sexual intimacy.
Cialis is yet another pill for impotence. Cialis and Viagra can be called brothers. Effectiveness of tablet lasts for about 30 hours. Cialis action when compared to Viagra, is faster. Cialis acts on the walls of blood vessels, preventing them from relaxing, thanks to the influence of substances that trigger it.
Cialis is admissible to the use of alcoholic beverages. The drug takes effect quickly, and the action is very long. What is best Cialis Viagra or Levitra
