  • If I eat spicy food with salty food with alcoholic beverage I start hallucinating with severe heart palpitations that seem near fatal when waking up before I discovered exactly how it kept happening. Excuse me until I finished my stool and flatulence it stopped on a dime. I’d be careful if I were you…if you got into an accident with a head injury I’d bet your body chemistry is so complex you could die of shock from extreme derailment from it…

  • Very nice, good info. Suggest you repeat audience questions as mike did not pick them up and we don’t know what you are answering and spend mental time trying to figure out the precise question.

  • Dr. Mona I am currently breastfeeding. My son is 5 months and I would like to try intermediate fasting. Would 16 hours be healthy for my in between time?

  • Never was too interested in a long life Doc but I DO subscribe to a QUALITY LIFE. I believe it is my job as a Child of GOD or the cosmos how ever you prefer it is to be a good and worthy steward in every way I can
    That’s what I think:)

  • Wise people will choose to change their habits!!!….These are my 10 tips:)
    1. Trust God
    2. Eat healthy, think about how people ate 300 years ago ( no chemicals,no preservatives,..just raw,simple healthy food)
    3.Exercise ( sedentary lifestyle is a major issue..our ancestors used to work more physically),be more outdoor than indoor
    4. Keep your mind focused..always learn..share what you’ve learned,pass it over to next generations
    5. Be aware that you have an enemy..its not people,Satan is the real enemy..people are just puppets in his hand
    6. Learn to love,learn to forgive..don’t keep negative emotions in your heart,mind and soul..this can have great repercussions on
    your health..speak with God in the morning and
    before you go to bed
    7. Don’t stress your mind!! Stop comparing yourself with other people,be thankful for what you have…God knows everything about you,EVERYTHING…things from your past, things you struggle with,health issues,broken relationships..and so on…don’t be upset on Him,he can heal you or can give you grace to cope with your problems….the world is broken,people suffer..don’t be a baby,stop feeling pity of yourself,don’t act like a victim..shake off the dust and continue to trust God.
    8. Don’t live like you have one life( you have one life and a lot of good choices )
    9. Don’t be selfish and egocentric,learn to be generous…be a friend to someone,restore family relationships( probably this should be on the top of the list ),love is sacrifice
    10. Accept Jesus as your personal Savior…he will arrange your list,your priorities. Don’t be proud,pride is nr 1 enemy…be taught,be humble,surround yourself with people that love you and want the best for you.

  • Thanks for sharing these great info..
    fasting is done by muslims all over the world every year, it’s a month when all muslims have to fast you can search for more about this.

  • Dr. Mona, thank you so much for your very informative videos! I love to watch your videos. I always learn so much from them, health, lifestyle and beauty. Would you please make a video on fasting, and when is the best time for women to fast? I have heard women in reproductive age should not do a fast a week before the period.

  • Thank you for going in depth of explaining and exploring the very foundation of why we need to stay healthy. As always so educational and informative. Thank you dear ��❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • Hi dr Mona. I just sent you an email in regards to cancer patients. Specifically, what type of infrared bed or LED infrared beds do you recommend? I would like to purchase it and bring it overseas since my relative with cancer does not live in the USA. Thank you so much.

  • That’s what Ayurveda says. Your stomach is the only gateway for a perfect health. Careful with the things that u put in ur mouth. Best lifestyle is prescribed in Ayurveda since times immemorial.

  • It feels like this sort of advice needs to come from someone that’s already in the late 60s or 70s… it’s like taking advice from a financial guru who has yet to make their fortune…

  • Thanks for sharing lovely �� ��

  • Is there a way to live forever?


    Salvation, forgiveness of sins and eternal life are available to anyone who believes in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

    Romans 10:
    17 Then faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God.

    Isaiah Chap 7: verse 14;
    Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign; Behold, a virgin scarf conceive, and bear a son, and scarf call his name Emmanuel
    (meaning: Hebrew: עִמָּנוּאֵל, “God with us” in human flesh as well as w / o sin)

    John 3:
    16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world; but the world through him can be saved.

     For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God ;; Romans chap 3: verse 23

    For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans chap 6: verse 23

     Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.. John 14.6

    1 Cor. 15:
    1 In addition, brothers, I declare to you the Gospel that I preached to you, which you also received and in which you received;
    2 Thanks to which you are also saved if you keep in mind what I preached to you if you did not believe in vain.
    3 First of all, I submit to you what I received and how Christ died for our sins according to the Holy Scriptures;
    4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
    5 And that he was seen by Cephas (Peter) and then of the 12 (as a group):

     In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Ephesians. 1: 7

    Romans 10:
    9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thy heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
    10 For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confusion is made to salvation.
    13 For whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

    Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 5: 1

  • DO YOU HAVE A VIDEO ON PMS OR CAN YOU PLEASE MAKE ONE? I just eat everything and I get so much acneee and hate everyone for a whole week ����������

  • Great info. I fast only for 12/13 hrs a day and not sure I can exceed that. How many grams of protein is beneficial for not losing hair and being vegan?

  • Honestly Mona thank you for posting such great content you are truly a gift to the world by blessing us with your amazing tips to help us be the best version of ourselves I hope you know you’re doing great things by informing the world with real raw advice and not fake stuff I’ve been feeling amazing lately with your advice! Thank you ❤️❤️

  • Thanks for sharing the info. I noticed your beautiful nail polish, just like mine:). Would like to know your opinion on gel nail polish. Is it healthy?

  • Doesn’t your body detox naturally? What do you mean by detoxing, because I know scientifically your body is constantly detoxing on its own.

  • Brilliant video. I certainly do agree with mediation. I meditate after reading the Bible every day. It helps with my faith. I also believe that by applying the principles contained within the Bible it helps reduce stress. I don’t agree with the fasting because a lot of ex-vegans have done it while vegan and it has led to health problems or existing health problems getting worse and them giving up being vegan.

  • Thank for sharing,…i’m..all about health n herbs n vegan but also exercise and water aromatherapy etc,…I learned something today..

  • A 16-18 hour fast would just be too much like binge eating for me. Wolfing down 2000 calories in the space of six hours is putting so much strain on my digestion that it would probably offset the digestive benefits of the fast! I think there must be a more balanced approach.

  • Could fasting begin from early evening, sleeping during the night, then not eat until 9 am? Your body would also be in a restful stage. What then do you mean about a 6 hour span?

  • “Tolerating” dairy does not mean it’s any good. It makes you acidic and sucks calcium from your bones. Milk from any animal is not meant for humans.

  • I would love to help you on achieving your optimal health! Fulvic Acid comes from the depths of the Earth containing 70+ minerals and vitamins. It also contains electrolytes, prebiotics, enzymes, antioxidants, and amino acids. This is SO powerful, bringing 45% more oxygen at the cellular level, leading to better breathing. Incorporating fulvic in your body can: improve gut health, enhance circulation, improve brain function, help nutrients absorb better, detox heavy metals/toxins, and more. I have never seen a supplement like this. It has changed my life. Feel free to look around on my website.:)

  • milk is for the babies…cow= calf, human breast milk=human…each milk has it´s function..human´s e.g. to develop brain, cow´s to make the calf to grow quickly….get educated. BREAST milk it is not for kids or adults who are not nursed anymore…

  • THANK YOU! I’ve battled with stomach problems for 4 months, doctors kept charging money and prescribing pills, something didn’t sink well with me so I visited YouTube doctor and found you! In just 2 days of drinking broths and eating kimchi etc I’ve been able to poop properly and not being bloated. ��������

  • I wish I knew where to get the proper tests first of all…US medicine, conventional health insurance doesn’t cover anything that this gentleman is speaking on.

  • I’m a ballerina and I dance from 3:30 7:00. So I get pretty hungry from exercising for so long, and believe me we work hard! So I was wondering if you could do a video about meals and or snacks that keep you full for a long time so I don’t have to keep snacking! <3

  • Successful and amazing hack using I received got $11,000 on my bank account and don’t have to pay back they got the very best hacks services

  • People often think that longevity is simply living for a long time, but that couldn’t be more untrue. It’s all about the quality of your life over the quantity and number of years. Someone living to 105 could have simply gotten lucky and managed to not die during the process. It’s important to have a quality life, and that starts with understanding longevity.

  • Thanks for the video, I’m all about living longer but also having a great quality of life as I age. Your channel is one of my favorites and was one of the channels that inspired me to start my own channel. Thanks so much!

  • You know this half lemon in warm water gave me yellow bowel movements. So I panicked and stopped doing it completely. If I were to return to that procedure, how much lemon should I use?

  • I never comment on videos but I want to give you a huge shout out. I have never heard anyone on Youtube mention telomeres and it is so incredibly important. As a psychology and biology major, science is what needs to be brought up more when talking about health! Thank you for being so informative and backing your information with science. And thank you Sam for bringing me here!

  • I ordered this gut product a couple of days ago it took the money out of my account.but I didn’t receive anything telling me about my order no confirmation no older number please confirm that my order was shipped my email [email protected] would like to know if I was scammed or if I really did order

  • Irritable bowel, acid reflux? Had them for 70 years. Hay fever 70 years. Have esophagitis more than 5 yrs now. This is a great talk but my daughter (a naturopath) thinks I’ve got SIBO and probably a carb intolerance & I don’t know what to do first, haven’t seen a doctor for 6 years, and don’t want to.

  • Lovely vid. Really cool. One question is no mention of glysophate intolerance. Isn’t that the big issue with the gluten intolerance?

  • Hi Dr Mona, I just wanted to leave a little thank you for your video about where you recommend ashwaghanda supplements. I’ve been dealing with anxiety for many years and this truly has helped me so much together with meditation so I can start my morning in a calm set mood. Thanks so much, keep up the great word you’re spreading and the amazing work you’re doing �� wish we would’ve learned some of these things in high school!

  • You mentioned a Dennis Stovy sorry about the spelling that had ME can you help me with his name so I can look further into it please? Or any links please?

  • Ben or any one else..any idea what would cause me to suddenly develop an egg intolerance in my late 30’s? I don’t have any other digestive issues so far.

  • Some great information, except for the encouragement to eat chicken, broth and other farm animal-related foods, unless of course, New Zealand / Australia don’t feed their animal stock anti-biotics, hormones, or indulge in other bad practices proven to decimate the microbiome. Unfortunately, these destructive practices are all too common in the U.S….

  • What kind of meditation do you do, I see that there’s mindful meditation and transcendental meditation…how do you get started…?

  • I know a lady that lived to 105 and you know what she ate

    Soul Food �� (Ribs, Fried Chicken �� Mac n Cheese ��, Greens, Bacon �� Grits)

  • I think sugar has a lot of bad bacteria because it can’t be washed in granules. But boiled green tea with the sugar doesn’t bother my stomach. Most all other states of sugar severely disrupts my stomach…

  • Dr. Mona. This was such an informative video! Thank you! It’s actually one of my favorites of yours. I must be totally honest with you, however. The very busy music in the background was rather distracting. I wanted to hear every word you spoke and the music prevented the flow. I LOVE your videos and channel, so I hope I didn’t offend you. I am just trying to help. Maybe if it was a more peaceful choice of music it would have been fine…..

  • I would love to know what I should eat for my psoriasis. I would follow it religiously. 37 years old now. Had Psoriasis since I was 7 years old. My psoriasis is moderate, but through diet and sunshine reduced it around 50% in 2007. I have tried all kinds of diets, vegan, raw foods, probiotics, food combining etcetera. I reduced dairy and rarely eat meat. Definitely pondering trying meat and veg diets low carb to see if that makes a difference. I intermittent fast usually when not working. I noticed a big difference reducing meat consumption to once every few months and also reducing nightshades. Potato starch and tahini are big triggers for me along with chili peppers and nightshades. I tried the lemon water thing but it didn’t agree with my stomach. I drink 2 litres of pure water per day. I am 6feet 3inches tall and around 11stone on a light week to 11.11 on a heavy week, so not overweight, but not muscular. First thing I eat on a morning is 1 banana and handful of raw pumpkin seeds every day. I limit my exercise to low impact as my psoriasis breaks out with running jogging etc. I can surf for hours on end and cycling swimming yoga, body weight exercises no problem. Yes I would love a diet programme to follow. I do get quite a lot of fatigue because I consume foods that don’t agree with me, but then again I have auto immune so that is a malfunctioning immune system. I don’t stress about getting better, but it would obviously be life changing if I could figure out how to eat and heal my gut if that’s even possible.

  • Hi Ben, I wonder whether you are now aware of Keto diet since 4 years ago when you did this talk. I learned a few things from this….thank you……
