  • Question: please Dr I was looking for some references about IgM and IgG response in COVID-19, why they arise together at the same time, isn’t strange?

  • Your lack of a complete and full view, as well as presenting such clearly shows your limits. For things like diet culture, you only mention the negatives. For respecting your body, all the supposed reprogramming from negative to positive is unrealistic. The proper ratio of positives and negatives is what’s truly going to help most individuals set realistic expectations. The way you present it, makes it seem like you need to cut out or change all the negatives, and it’s pandering and is what makes many too soft.

    You are not helping them truly if you think simple positive talk and positive mindset, and positive whatever is going to help them. The negatives do have a place and can be used as a stimulus for motivation and such. It’s a matter of how much is healthy, and how much is too much. This is something that NEEDS to be mentioned, so that people who do have issues with how their mindset is, understand that to fix or solve whatever issues they have, they simply need to, in a sense, rebalance the scales, instead of going in the extreme opposite, from extreme negative to extreme positive.

    If you truly think that all this positive self talk and self love is enough, then you really need to reevaluate everything. Your point of view is very INCOMPLETE, and is even more reason why people should question your content more.

  • Dr. you are an upstanding man. Very clear about your opinion of “NO” on school at this point and exactly why. You really do have a great respect for life. Thank you. Even if someone does not agree, they should respect your stance.

  • Abbey, you have mentioned probiotics and supplements in past videos, are these things that an average person should be taking? If so, how do you find the right one for yourself? I have looked for probiotics in the past, but there are so many!

  • Food is fuel! I don’t over-fuel the car just because it feels good. Why would I over-fuel my body? Once we ditch the idea that food is somehow connected to pleasure and love and social situations, we’ll be healthier.

  • Take down your Coach Greg Video if you have the slightest decency and are willing to admit how wrong your representation of his diet actually was. And maybe you’ll be able to redeem your channel if you start posting some quality content instead of pandering to your subscribers and making ” More spews for more views” type videos. The only thing greg did was burst that bubble of blissful ignorance you and your subscribers were used to��

  • Request: WHO is talking about a mutation in the spikes so please Dr Mobeen.. teach us about that..would like ti see the actual virus changes..take us to a lab..virtually..if not you..who will?

  • The steroid you use, Dr. Been, delta what? I could not understand the answer. Could you please spell it for me? Would prednisone work? Thank you!

  • Please do that discussion about the USA soon, Dr. Been. Because knowledge is power and facing faults head on is the only thing to do. We can handle any emotion or feelings you have over your disappointments. Many of us are disappointed too. You have a soothing, calming voice of reason. That won’t change just because you have some disappointing things to say about the USA. All us Americans need to hear it.

  • Thank you for this video!!!! I’ve been struggling with body imagine since I was 6 years old!!!! I’ve been wishing to have a smaller body naturally, thinking “why do I workout and eat healthier than most of my friends and relative and STILL HAVE A LARGER BODY THAN THEM!?” I know my body is not designed to be small, my back is wide, my rib cage is big, my arms are naturally fuller too! It’s hard to come to terms with it when the media portrays women’s image as delicate and small. Thank you for helping me understand that there are things I can’t change but I can learn to be ok with, and I will work on loving the things I can do and my strong body allows me to do!♥️

  • Hello Dr. Been. Could you please comment on this study on immunity out of Australia?


  • I understand the concept, but I still don’t agree with your message that intuitive eating is right for everyone. The overweight people that I know aren’t just trying to decide whether or not they should have a donut once a week without feeling guilty about it. Of course, you should eat when you’re hungry and treat yourself occasionally. That’s not the real issue and I think you’re missing the point when people disagree with intuitive eating. My sisters and mom are overweight (one of them by 100+ pounds) and recently stayed with me. Not only did they eat 3 meals a day and snack in between, but they also proceeded to make a pizza at 10:30pm and follow it up with cinnamon buns. They were asking me how I maintain my weight and I told them that I eat healthier foods and I try not to eat when I’m not hungry. Their response was basically that they know they need to be healthier, but they simply don’t want to change anything. They don’t want to stop snacking all day & night. They don’t want to trade a bag of potato chips for carrots and hummus. I offered them almond milk for their coffee. Even though they said they liked it, they went to the store and bought sweetened condensed milk to use instead, because that’s just what they’re used to. We went for a 12 minute walk and it was a struggle for them. Hearing someone tell them that they should eat whatever they want, whenever they want, just gives them an excuse to keep going that way. They need to make better decisions, even if it’s not what they’re craving in the moment.

  • Did you get to look into the Bergamot idea? Does lowering cholesterol also create weight loss? What might be the connection? Will the prescribed meds. from this help

  • ? 1st u rock Dr. Mobeen. As someone with multiple sclerosis and blood brain barrier already breached would ivermectrin not be a option. I found a study where ivermectrin was beneficial to multiple sclerosis

  • Hello Abbey. Thank you for making these videos. I have a question about body shaming. This topic comes up in your videos quite regularly and I really appreciate your acceptance when it comes to different body types. After watching one of your recent videos and listening to the response videos of that person, I have a question because I am somewhat confused about it.

    You have made a video about a body builder called Greg Doucette. Sorry for all the trouble and stress this has brought upon you. When you talked about his goals of becoming “super shredded” you commented with a derogatory “yikes” accompanied by a disgusted look on your face. Isn’t that body shaming? Greg Doucette has stated that he is happy with his goals and his body, but you spoke as if he should be ashamed of his behavior. That doesn’t feel very inclusive to me. How is this okay? Am I missing something? Shouldn’t we always have an accepting attitude towards everybody and every body? I have always felt welcome on this channel, but now I fear that you would scoff at my own goals and my own body if you would actually see me, just like you did with Greg Doucette.

    I hope you don’t write off my comment as an attempt at trolling, but see it as the thing it is truly meant to be, which is genuine concern and criticism towards your actions in this particular situation. Have a great day.

  • Oh my gosh I cant even begin to explain to you how much I needed this video today, thank you so much for posting it and being so great! I have been watching your channel for about a year now and all the content is super positive and I have gained so much from it. I have been in a total negative spiral with negative thoughts about myself/my body and although I am not active in eating disorder behaviours the thoughts have definitely ramped UP during this time of stress in my life. It seems that when I am in the negative mind space it is SO HARD to get yourself out and so easy to just keep going deeper and deeper into self hate. With this video I am reminded of what skills I can use to combat these negative thoughts (reframing/finding positive attributes about my body/focusing on what my body can do rather than what it looks like) and I am going to really try to do this! I love the saying “If you cannot love your body at the moment, work on respecting it”. I think I can do that. THANK YOU ABBEY!

  • Question: Thank you dr, please we all know rapid tests show low sensitivity and low specificity but we see a lot of them now media is making too much noise about it, when I tell them it’s not good for diagnosis I get an insult.. they say it is approved now!!! So do you think there is now a rapid test with good sensitivity and specificity that can be used in diagnosis..? ( not the one of saliva using which seems it is promising, I mean the serology)

  • After 6 children and approaching midlife it seems like I have to eat less and less and work out more and more just to hold the line. It’s so frustrating and makes it hard to enjoy food.

  • Engagement is engagement and that’s what you nuggets just keep forgetting. I love myself and that’s why I take care of myself. If people cannot love themselves, they cannot care for their bodies, minds, or overall health. It’s great to spread this message to love yourself first and then be mindful of contributions to your body’s health and well being. Well done, Abbey.

  • As far as deaths being high in the USA. The USA has a very large obese population and obesity is one of the worst predisposition for fatal outcomes in COVID19.

  • Another excellent lecture, my question yesterday was maybe igg antibodies become ace2 receptors. I’m almost convinced this is happening, I have been and will continue to educate more on this. Maybe you could do a video on how the ace2 receptors are developed? the 2 arms on the igg are for binding with the viral transcripts to neutralize where the 3rd could be a leg for attaching to a cell from inside the cell or outside the cell either way multiple receptors are needed on a cell, the ace2 receptor and the igg do the exact same thing bind and neutralize. I’m almost convinced as well that immune cell burst occurs intentionally to release igg antibodies to flood a area of infection, cells have mobility igg’s don’t have mobility

  • When this is all over I would like to see the track record of all doctors treating covid patients, looking at hospitalizations and deaths vs treatment protocols.
    Even now there are still doctors doing nothing and just watching the patient.

  • US has 3.1M of 5.8M cases recovered or 53%. I think they are more meticulous about reporting cases than reporting recovered cases. For example AZ has 29K recovered of 198K cases. They are not reporting recovered cases accurately.
