While it’s normal for the number on the scale to fluctuate when you’re losing weight, if you’re constantly losing and regaining weight (aka yo-yo dieting ), you could be increasing your risk of developing dementia, among other health issues. Carrying around excess weight is bad for your health. This isn’t news. Trying to keep it off by dieting off and on could be bad for your brain, though.

A study done by researchers in Korea has found that gaining or losing a significant amount of weight as a senior. July 20, 2016 11:58 Yo-yo dieting could increase your risk of dementia, a new study warns. The medical community has long advised people to keep their levels of ‘bad cholesterol’ from fatty and sugary foods to a minimum. But new research suggests that letting those levels fluctuate by crash dieting could also have devastating consequences. Whether that is 5 pounds or 50, restarting the cycle with a new diet plan leads to yo-yo dieting.

Risks Associated with Yo-Yo Dieting. The health risks associated with being overweight or obese are well documented. However, recent research suggests that yo-yo dieting can also be hard on your health.

Repeatedly gaining and losing weight places a. Yo-yo dieting can make it harder to sense your body’s internal hunger cues, which can lead to food restriction and binge eating, says nutrition coach Lucia Hawley, FNTP, LSW. (For more on intuitive eating, see “8 Tips for Intuitive Eating”.) 5. Elevated Risk of Type 2 Diabetes. In addition to the psychological toll, research suggests that periodically losing and gaining weight may increase one’s risk for heart disease, diabetes, gallstones, cancer, osteoporosis and even dementia. Here are six ways—beyond the scale—that yo-yo dieting may impact your health long-term. Dementia diet the cooking oil to lower your risk of Alzheimer’s disease revealed.

DEMENTIA symptoms include memory loss, difficulty concentrating, and having slower thoughts. A diet mixing sugary snacks, starchy foods, and processed meat may significantly increase risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. The study looked at. Of the studies that looked at risk of type 2 diabetes, the majority (76 percent) concluded that weight cycling did not increase blood sugar levels nor risk of type 2 diabetes. Thus, the researchers concluded that there’s inconclusive evidence to support a connection between yo-yo dieting and increased risk.

Bad cholesterol could increase your risk of dementia, a new study warns. The medical community has long advised people to keep their levels of ‘bad cholesterol’ from fatty and sugary foods to.

  • This is so out of date! Check out the RECODE protocol from The Buck Institue and Dr. Dale Bredesen. Cut out sugars (all), exercise, get out in the sun, get good sleep, have a ‘cognoscopy’ to check you don’t have exposure to toxins or are in an ‘inflammatory’ state. As a family we have intervened using this with a loved one and have had remarkable improvement. It works! The drugs he is talking about have all failed. Plaques and tangles are the brain protective response to the ‘insult’ of insulin resistance, toxins and too much sugar.

  • Inadequate. Proposed premise, but did not describe what to do, which he should know all about. He not ready for lectures outside a dinner party.

  • My father got the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s. Devastating. He was in a very nice nursing home that kept feeding him SOY. Soy is in most foods fed to our seniors, and school age kids in their breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. Cognitive impairments, poor concentration, memory problems, lethargy, over-emotional, not able to understand simple instructions, can’t convey ideas, GI upset, anxiety and depression can all be linked to SOY. Soy is not a food but a hormone de/regulator. If can adversely affect all of us (cattle act like they do sedated, irritable, distracted because of soy, so do dogs and cats when it is in their food) because it is not a food but a medicine. Soy should never be consumed unless it is fermented and then should only be eaten in small amounts. The end of this story is that when my dad wasn’t eating soy he didn’t have “Alzheimer’s or dementia”, his memory was intact, he could tell you the name of everyone who worked in the nursing home and what they did, his sense of humor returned, and he didn’t “mess in the bed”, he was happy he was Dad. So, before you dismiss someone as having Alzheimer’s or dementia, eliminate SOY totally from their diet (read the ingredients of EVERYTHING because it is hidden in many foods as “protein”! Ensure and other liquid diets are the worst.), and see if they aren’t cured of this insidious silent killer that robs years from their lives!

  • Great information my family is practicing the my plate plan with out even realizing it.I’v loss 22lbs,my daughter loss 41and my son in-law 47 we walk a lot it’s amazing we have so much more clarity,energy and over all good health.

  • Hey TED editors, the note you put up under the video is utter nonsense. If you are gonna make claims you gotta back them up. Pathetic!

  • Great video! It’s comforting to know that our genes can be silenced with the right food choices and lifestyle changes. Thank you for sharing!

  • read The End of Alzheimer’s by Dr Dale Bredesen. his research is showing how to slow and REVERSE documented cases of AD.
    not pie-in-the-sky hype. proven clinical research.

  • That “NOTE FROM TED” above, saying “do not look to this talk for medical advice” is about as ridiculous a statement that can come from any thinking mind. YES! Go ahead and use it as medical advice, because these claims are not new with Dr. Barnard. In fact, over a hundred years ago, a health expert counseled, when asked what should make up a salad, “mix the colors” exactly what Dr. Barnard is saying.

  • Such an abundance and variety of foods without having to cause other species any harm.
    How much better would the world/planet be, if eating a plant based diet was the rule, not the exception.
    How much more quickly would humans evolve into a civil, peaceful, compassionate, united, intelligent and creative species if animals and their products were not treated as commodities.

  • Thank you Dr. Becky. No desire/craving to run to sweets any longer. Gut puts on the brakes when a temptation arises. Much easier to avoid, don’t even think about yielding to that old sweet tooth.

  • Our great grand parents ate healthy, fresh foods, no artificial colorings, and no artificial preservatives, they had to walk short distances because there were no automobiles, plainly saying they were healthy, applying to the basics. Today nowadays people eat from boxes, TV dinners, even those prepared to be mailed, what can we honestly and reasonably expect?

  • Hi Dr. Becky❣you’re soooo spot on! This helped me explain a lot about why sometimes I’m up.6 or.8 on my daily weight loss!!! I still haven’t eaten any sugar BUT getting sloppy with my food? The cause!!! Love you! Thank you for guiding us all on our journey to good health!!!

  • Although the main messages of this video are right on the money, there is many information which is simply not true. First of all, oxidation of either copper or iron does not produce free radicals. Second, in most cases those minerals (and most others) are already oxidated when consumed. Next, a free radical although very destructive does not “live” long enough to “travel” through body. It is so unstable that it “dies” literally nanoseconds after being created. I stopped watching halfway through so I’m not sure what more misinformation has been relayed… Other than that from my perspective Alzheimer’s disease is certainlly not the worst that could happen to a person. My grandma had it and as her family we’ve seen it as a blessing. Although she lived in a retirement home for 10 years before death, she had no clue where she was and who people around her were, in her own mind she was a teenager living at her family home with her mother the period of time she was the happiest. It also meant that she was free of experience of pain or loss. If you asked me, that’s way better than any disease which causes great pain or makes you unable to move about.

  • Hi Dr. Becky. I’ve really been enjoying your channel. I have a question regarding intermittent fasting and think it might be a good video idea. About 3 years ago I discovered IF and dropped 15 lbs in a short time. The same 15 lbs I’d been trying to lose for 5 years! By doing IF for 5 days a week I was able to maintain the weight loss for about 18 months. Then I slowly started gaining. Despite continuing to do IF most days of the week, I now have gained back the 15 lbs and another 10 lbs. This is my highest weight ever and I feel hopeless to lose it. My blood work is normal. Does IF stop working? If so why? Does it make metabolism slow down? Is this common? I’m afraid that I’ve messed up my body with IF. Thanks

  • So, I have to disagree with the “plate” and RDA set forth by USDA. If you had 3 to 4 servings of fruit and or vegetables a day, your sugar level, even in the form of fructose, is a recipe for insulin resistance. We need to readdress these guidelines once again.

  • Two to three cups a day of freshly brewed tea hot or iced contains a modest amount of caffeine which, when used “judiciously,” says Kulze can boost brain power by enhancing memory, focus, and mood. Tea also has potent antioxidants, especially the class known as catechines, which promotes healthy blood flow. Any comments?

  • I love you Neal Bernard! I love you and Dr Michael Gregor, and Joel Fuhrman.
    Wish I could give you all a hug!
    I hope you invite Jesus into your hearts and get saved �� He is our light and our life

  • Poor speaker mispronounces many of the medical terms. Insensitive use of words like “death sentence”, “killer” and “demented”. Might make talk seem more interesting but not what you want to hear if you suffer from the condition. For the very elderly, most people will have other health problems (heart disease, cancer etc) and Alzheimer’s disease may not be the cause of your death. Most research is carried out on amyloid without any success so far. Key is prevention control blood pressure, eat healthily (e.g. Mediterranean diet), exercise and maintain a good weight from middle-age onwards. The cure​ is many years away.

  • Besides, you can impact your brain function and cognitive abilities by making simple tweaks here and there to your daily routine. Exercise and sound sleep are vital for your brain health, as are certain nutrients, such as omega-3 fats, coconut oil, vitamin B12, vitamin D, probiotics and more.

  • It has been proven that we can heal the brain. Scans have shown before and after evidence so don’t believe this guy when he says it’s too late

  • Hi. Just subscribed. I am 66 year old male taking Diltiazem for blood pressure and tachycardia. When I started the Diltiazem I noticed that my resting heart rate dropped by about 10 bpm. I can’t help but think that this would slow down my metabolism. Would that be right?

  • Sounds like my mother. Reusing grease in the blue crisco jar. Same oil over and over. EVERYTHING tasted like that last fish fry whenever she would use the grease lol

  • Sounds like my mother. Reusing grease in the blue crisco jar. Same oil over and over. EVERYTHING tasted like that last fish fry whenever she would use the grease lol

  • I like the advice about working on the diet before adding exercise. The temptation to add fasting and a strict exercise routine too quickly can be difficult to sustain.

  • They have found a cure for alzheimer’s disease at the sunnybrook hospital in Canada it’s called focused ultrasound and you can watch them curing it on YouTube good luck

  • Thanks for all of the helpful advice!  I was thinking of going on a keto diet, but was concerned about eating too few carbs.  A friend told me that our brains use glucose as its main source of energy, so I was wondering if that should be a concern if I reduce carbs significantly.  Thank you for any insights!

  • I’m kind of ‘recovering’ from heavy calorie restriction. I was eating like 450 calories a day and burning 600 calories. That went for 2 years. I was obsessed.. I started at 67. 1 kg and now I’m 65.5 kg. At my ‘best’ I was 63 kg. I was eating so little and didn’t even lose that much weight. Now I just did a lot of home workouts for 4 days and I’m not eating more calories (500+-, slowly trying to eat more) but more protein in the calories. Now I am 67 kg (btw I’m 165 cm). I was always very muscular and very sporty. I hope It’s muscle and water weight… I’m just so anxious about gaining weight��

  • Iron carries oxygenated blood throughout our bodies. I’ve been cooking in cast iron pans for years and a vegetarian for the most part and I’m iron deficient and very common, most of the population have iron deficiency anemia. I also don’t think the alternative frying pans are healthy? What about iron supplements?

  • Great information my family is practicing the my plate plan with out even realizing it.I’v loss 22lbs,my daughter loss 41and my son in-law 47 we walk a lot it’s amazing we have so much more clarity,energy and over all good health.

  • Folks this clown is part of the vegan cult! Eat your meat and stay away from sugar and any food that turns into sugar and its that easy.All of these clowns have been trained by Big Pharma and promote Big Ag and are brain washing you.I think i will leave you now and go have some greasy bacon and a big Rib-I cooked medium!Thank You and God Bless!

  • Very good info. When I exercise, I actually gain weight, because I eat more. Exercise hardly burns calories anyway. Also, you look great, dr. Becky!

  • I am not in favor of any particular diet….im just wondering just how is that grains are tow days the base for human food if we were not able to eat them on a regular basis until the invention of agriculture…..and many people is not even capable of digesting it?

  • Vaccines kill, paralyze, cause cancer, diabetes, lupus, seizures, autism, arthritis, Alzheimer’s. The viruses are grown on aborted baby cell lines and contain human DNA, as well as animal cell lines and animal DNA. They contain aluminum, Mercury, formaldehyde, MSG, glyphosate, polysorbate 80, antibiotics. Please people, wake up! We must stop injecting our precious babies, we must stop mandatory laws. We must save our future generation from a lifetime of suffering. Watch high wire with Del Bigtree for more information. May God bless our babies!

  • I just read the NOT FROM TED. It literally says: The speaker makes assertions about a specific diet that lack sufficient scientific evidence for general prescription. LOL! Our society is pathetic! We live at a time greater than ever before for information on the best quality of health, and disclaimers like this still exist to keep addictive people happy with their lifestyle of sugars, salts, oils, fats, browning (and charring) of foods, alcohol, caffeine, etc

  • What kind of frying pan can we use if we cannot use iron and copper. I heard that aluminum is no good for and neither stainless steel, so what type of frying pan is safe to use?

  • Exercise does nothing for weight loss, imo.
    It helps to rid the bloodstream of glucose, so that we can start to use stored fat.
    If I exercised with my extra pounds I used to have? I’d have to go to the chiropractor for an adjustment. Because I was wrecking myself with the fat pushing on my joints.
    Now after losing my fat, exercise will be beneficial for toning up, not weight loss. And I won’t be stressing my joints with fat pressure

  • Sounds good huh? Best way to prevent Alzheimer is proper Diet exercise and the best of all sleep. Drugs won’t fix Alzheimer because many of them induce memory loss. Normal drugs that was made to help mentally ill patients have side effects that causses Alzheimer. Drugs that also make people lose their memory are ones that deal with many chronic illnesses. Stay away from any drug that claim to fix your memory. Science have not fully discovered how to cure the brain with pharmacuticals. The only way is Nutrition, Diet, Exercise and good Sleep habits.

  • Another step drink tea or coffee with your meals. The Blue Zone populations have very low levels of iron borderline anaemic by current standards. So do Japanese women the longest lived national population in the world. This is partly because of low meat consumption, but also because they drink tea with their meals. All the Blue Zone communities drink tea, coffee or similar beverages that block the absorption of iron.

  • “and the brain also tells you they’re pretty, they’re attractive”: this sentence is beautiful XD! Every physician/doctor should watch this talk! I see too many pills prescribed and almost no change in lifestyles! thank you so much for this talk ♡

  • Thank you Dr Becky!! You’re so on point! You’ve talked a little about it. But please do more on negative self talk? I’m so close to reaching my goals. After 5 years of hard work. No matter the progress and encouragement I see and hear. That little voice in my head. Seems to always try to look for a negative. Or reason to fail. Even though I can see and feel my results. I’ve beat sugar cravings for the most part. I can actually feel real hunger now. With out that sugar monkey on my back. I can control my eating now. ��LCHF seems to work for me!����

  • It’s funny. But all of the things he explained. IS things we have in the back of our heads in Denmark. We are taught this from very young, and it has a significant effect on our society.
    For example sleep, it is by far the best medicin you can get. And we know this, we have known this for years. Even if we didn’t have the scientific evidence for it. (now we do).

  • dont make it a sensational disease wid d use of words like murderer.
    u hv not lost a beloved one to this horrible inhuman disrease to even begin to understand d pain.������

  • This is all interesting but in 2020 it all flies in the face of the latest scientific evidence, infact the opposite.. Sugar and carbs combined do the damage. Good talk though with merit

  • Hi dr.
    The keto diet has so much negative side effects (disturbed hormones, hair loss,…) that we must alternate with days or periods with carbs. That is a form of jojo but controled I think. Or at least go from keto to low carb then keto then low carb.
    What are your thoughts on this?

  • So, I have to disagree with the “plate” and RDA set forth by USDA. If you had 3 to 4 servings of fruit and or vegetables a day, your sugar level, even in the form of fructose, is a recipe for insulin resistance. We need to readdress these guidelines once again.

  • Great information as always. Can you do a video about how much fat to eat. Like can you show us samples of a butter pack or how many eggs etc to feel satiated. I do understand that it depends on the person but a overall general sample in grams could help.

  • Just so you know the 2012 penny you showed?.has no c0pper. everything 1983 And younger.. has no Copper..
    1982 and older copper pennies..” are “pure copper” & more far more pure than what’s in your pipes or wiring…

  • Always depressing a thin, smooth, plainly wealthy, academically-satisfied bloody Ectomorph telling an old, relatively poor isolated and plump endomorph how bloody wonderful my future could be if only I…………..had his opportunities and place in life.

  • It’s very fundamental. The brain is starving for decades due to poor diet. Trying to feed the brain with glucose only. Brain uses 20% of or energy. It becomes critical when insulin resistance develops. Brain needs plenty of ketones starting in the womb.

  • Misleading title. No new information about preventing Alzheimer’s. Waste of time watching. Ignores a whole foods plant based dietary approach.

  • Why is it that no scientist is looking at what the hearing aids, (stuck in each ear and as close to the brain as can be), can do to a person wearing them. My husband had almost immediate problem (doctors suggested it was a TIA or mini stroke, but could not support this with all the tests done!) after changing to the new hearing aids batteries! He had five trips to the ER before he realized that each time he had ‘an occurrence’ he was wearing the hearing aids!!! Not using anything electric/magnetic on his ears any more but the damage has been done already! He has started some terrible form of dementia immediately after the first attack. No more hearing aids for him but who will return his memory, cognition, balance… his life??? He is improving now, not thanks to the local doctors but rather to Dr. Mary T. Newport from US (see her videos on Youtube), and the coconut oil and some vitamins she has used for her own husband when hit with the quick onset dementia… Simple solutions sometimes work best! Perhaps this can find a way to help someone…

We live at a time greater than ever before for information on the best quality of health, and disclaimers like this still exist to keep addictive people happy with their lifestyle of sugars, salts, oils, fats, browning (and charring) of foods, alcohol, caffeine, etc

  • I’m afraid my mom has this she smells sweet things and burning things and I never smell it and lately she hasn’t been remembering things what do I do?

  • He forgot to say that iron is added to many staple foods particularly in the USA where iron is routinely added to wheat, rice and corn. Researchers at Harvard believe that the iron in meat plus the added iron in the food chain is a major cause of dementia.

  • An awesome explanation and a great advice to maintain our daily base routine diet and stuff.And yeah, can’t ignore his personality and style����☺️

  • Another step drink tea or coffee with your meals. The Blue Zone populations have very low levels of iron borderline anaemic by current standards. So do Japanese women the longest lived national population in the world. This is partly because of low meat consumption, but also because they drink tea with their meals. All the Blue Zone communities drink tea, coffee or similar beverages that block the absorption of iron.

  • I love sunflower seeds and mango and avocado and cashews. I like to add them to our shakes in the morning. We actually eat huge amounts blueberries.

  • Thanks for all of the helpful advice!  I was thinking of going on a keto diet, but was concerned about eating too few carbs.  A friend told me that our brains use glucose as its main source of energy, so I was wondering if that should be a concern if I reduce carbs significantly.  Thank you for any insights!

  • Alzheimer is an  INFECTIOUS  disease of the Brain.     This is mainly a fungal infection.  Found a huge amount of bacteria in the Brain.   I  think  one of  the  BEST   help   for  Alzheimer  Brain   Baking  SODA   ( teaspoon  in  warm glass of water  on  empty  stomach  2-3 times a day )  by  making  body  alkaline    and   Garlic  a lot.   Rife  machine  work amazing.   And  Beta-Amiloid  plaque  does not  cause  the  Disease       BACTERIA   making  inflammation  and  inflamation    cause  of  forming   Beta-Amiloid   protein  ( or  plaque ).     Nobody  pays attention  that  young  people  are  getting  sick too,  but the young  commit  suicide and no one talks about it.  Doctors  should  be  ashamed!!!     We need  strong  ANTIBIOTICS for  the  BRAIN!!!

  • This is all interesting but in 2020 it all flies in the face of the latest scientific evidence, infact the opposite.. Sugar and carbs combined do the damage. Good talk though with merit

  • I am not in favor of any particular diet….im just wondering just how is that grains are tow days the base for human food if we were not able to eat them on a regular basis until the invention of agriculture…..and many people is not even capable of digesting it?

  • If you want to relieve the symptoms of Alzheimer’s or dementia disease take an eyebrow tweezers and remove the hair follicles from the patients hands, feet, and wrists. This should have an immediate effect on their well being.

  • Exercise does nothing for weight loss, imo.
    It helps to rid the bloodstream of glucose, so that we can start to use stored fat.
    If I exercised with my extra pounds I used to have? I’d have to go to the chiropractor for an adjustment. Because I was wrecking myself with the fat pushing on my joints.
    Now after losing my fat, exercise will be beneficial for toning up, not weight loss. And I won’t be stressing my joints with fat pressure

  • Dr. Becky… thank you for this video… I am an undisputed Queen of yo-yo dieting… starting in my teens… I have continuously dieted for the past 60 years… All that happened is that I am near morbid obesity, have unbelievable cravings, no energy, insulin resistance, high blood pressure and little hope of ever having a life as I have isolated myself for the past 20 years because of the shame of being obese… I have been on one meal a day, keto/carnivore for ten months with no weight loss at all… so frustrated… My body does not go into ketosis at all even on zero carb carnivore diet… I am praying that I can do a water-only fast now for the next 60 days or so until I am in good health…

  • Is your course a one payment? It continues forever. When I meet my goal, after support..
    Do you add to this course or is it example 25 videos and that’s it!..sorry not sure if this program is for me.. I’m 58 need only about 10 pounds(the hard ones to loose) and already follow a low carb…50-100 carbs a day…

  • Hi Dr. Becky❣you’re soooo spot on! This helped me explain a lot about why sometimes I’m up.6 or.8 on my daily weight loss!!! I still haven’t eaten any sugar BUT getting sloppy with my food? The cause!!! Love you! Thank you for guiding us all on our journey to good health!!!

  • Thank you Dr. Becky. No desire/craving to run to sweets any longer. Gut puts on the brakes when a temptation arises. Much easier to avoid, don’t even think about yielding to that old sweet tooth.

  • Just so you know the 2012 penny you showed?.has no c0pper. everything 1983 And younger.. has no Copper..
    1982 and older copper pennies..” are “pure copper” & more far more pure than what’s in your pipes or wiring…
    They are well worth saving

  • So sad, but anyone who has looked after a loved one with dementia will know how hard it is physically and mentally. My heart goes out to anyone/everyone affected by Alzheimer/Dementia. A huge shout out to any caregiver doing this alone! I feel your journey. I feel your pain because I’ve been there. My mom was also diagnosed in her 60s. Feeling absolutely shattered, heartbroken and drained, working with different physicians across the country with little or no improvement. I was exhausted and overwhelmed to look any further. Crying a lot through frustration, anger and despair, But today with the help of Homeocure Worldwide Natural Medicine, my mother is completely healthy and well again. I think we only need more support and sunlight to overcome this dreadful disease. Search for support regardless and don’t stop until you get it. With Homeocure Worldwide treatment, there is hope, don’t give up! contact them on their Youtube channel for more info

  • Because short term memory goes first with Alzheimer’s, long term memory is a lose it or lose it. Out of 70 cards I went from remembering 3 in order to at my best to doing 7 cards in random order. Check my channel out with the newest video. Good luck.

  • Electroshock or ECT is now being used in some cases of dementia/Alzheimer’s around agitation. It is a form of behavioral control because ECT uses up to 450 volts and greater to the brain and subdues secondary to traumatic brain injury outcomes. It creates docility and manageability for caregivers. There is no FDA testing for safety or effectiveness of devices or procedure. There is currently a national product liability suit in the courts that have proved brain injury outcomes at a minimum. This is purely electrical trauma passed off as a mental health treatment. Electrical trauma can evolve years out in damages to include CTE and ALS. It also impacts all bodily systems in damages to include cardiac and respiratory. Patients have been lied to and harmed around this practice for decades. Inform yourself on ectjustice and Life After ECT. A good book on this topic is called Doctors of Deception by Linda Andre. This practice generates billions annually in US alone. Medical malpractice firms are also interviewing patients for suits as informed consent is fallible. There is no FDA testing for safety or even effectiveness. This is also fraud. Medicare paying out huge amounts on this procedure that has not even been tested. Cover ups for decades at patient expense. Also discrimination on part of FDA in not testing a device or procedure involving a protected population under the ADA.

  • How do we realized we have memory problems. My memory has been terrible all my life and it seems getting worse. Where or who make the diagnose?

  • Are amyloid and tau pathologies the underlying cause or do they simply correlate with memory loss. I was hoping he would bring it up and kind of disappointing not to see that important pieces of puzzle. And how do you prevent AD? Anything we learned from that research to help us prevent it. Is the trial on healthy individual part of this research?

  • So what makes us think that the amyloid or tau are actually harmful in and of themselves? I’m a little concerned that researchers may be making the same assumptions here as they did with cholesterol. For decades cholesterol was the enemy, but now it’s starting to look more like cholesterol is protective. It’s more like the firefighter than the arsonist. What makes us think amyloid is the arsonist? Or tau for that matter? Do they appear at every disaster because that’s how our bodies attempt to solve the underlying problem, or because they caused the disaster in the first place?

  • Hi. Just subscribed. I am 66 year old male taking Diltiazem for blood pressure and tachycardia. When I started the Diltiazem I noticed that my resting heart rate dropped by about 10 bpm. I can’t help but think that this would slow down my metabolism. Would that be right?

  • He has great English but his accent is quite hard to follow, and the killer/murder analogy was quite confusing, although he’s so compelling he made me forget why I was watching this

  • What kind of frying pan can we use if we cannot use iron and copper. I heard that aluminum is no good for and neither stainless steel, so what type of frying pan is safe to use?

  • I love sunflower seeds and mango and avocado and cashews. I like to add them to our shakes in the morning. We actually eat huge amounts blueberries.

  • Hi dr.
    The keto diet has so much negative side effects (disturbed hormones, hair loss,…) that we must alternate with days or periods with carbs. That is a form of jojo but controled I think. Or at least go from keto to low carb then keto then low carb.
    What are your thoughts on this?

  • Always depressing a thin, smooth, plainly wealthy, academically-satisfied bloody Ectomorph telling an old, relatively poor isolated and plump endomorph how bloody wonderful my future could be if only I…………..had his opportunities and place in life. I hope he chokes on his bloody antioxidants and his bloody anthocyanins.

  • Great video! It’s comforting to know that our genes can be silenced with the right food choices and lifestyle changes. Thank you for sharing!

  • I’m wondering if your father ate alot of margarine another poison the government recommended to us to help the farmers sell more corn and soybean products?

  • Nobody ever addresses the secret excitement that fat people have for food. This compulsive need for the excitement they get from food, mostly bad food, and other things is what is killing them. They need to calm down, naturally, especially if they are going to fast more than 12 hours a day, which may be even more important than what they eat. Most of them don’t even see they have a problem with compulsive excitement, which includes judging other people to feel normal about themselves, needing to be entertained, and feeling angry about what they see is their undeserved circumstances, which they richly deserve because they won’t admit any error HONESTLY. No wonder they feel fatigued. No wonder they are so easily stressed out. They love stressing themselves out. That is their life’s pleasure. They are constantly in a state of excitement, fear, anger or pleasure and the body just can’t handle that. In their final stages, they can’t breathe because of the hormonal havoc they have indulged in all their lives, which all seems normal to them. Nobody EVER bothers to correct them. To be sure, most of them are beyond correction. Physicians blame the body/physiology for the problem like the politicians blame the rich, and the fatties are happy to along with that as they continue to eat themselves to smithereens. Doctors don’t help their patients that are like that. They help them themselves to them and their insolvable problem of compulsion. Serves them right. Doctors need to tell their morbidly obese patients the cause of their problem is their compulsive need for excitement and the need to cover it up. They have to learn to be still inside. That is where their self-control is if they have any left. Only then can the diet be realistically altered and maintained, intuitively.

  • Stopping amyloid beta completely, may be not the best idea. We create amyloid to protect and contain ourselves from brain viruses… Not enough research done on the consequences. You cannot look at the brain as a separate part of your body, you need to look holistically to what’s going on

  • I love you Neal Bernard! I love you and Dr Michael Gregor, and Joel Fuhrman.
    Wish I could give you all a hug!
    I hope you invite Jesus into your hearts and get saved �� He is our light and our life

  • Thank you Dr Becky!! You’re so on point! You’ve talked a little about it. But please do more on negative self talk? I’m so close to reaching my goals. After 5 years of hard work. No matter the progress and encouragement I see and hear. That little voice in my head. Seems to always try to look for a negative. Or reason to fail. Even though I can see and feel my results. I’ve beat sugar cravings for the most part. I can actually feel real hunger now. With out that sugar monkey on my back. I can control my eating now. ��LCHF seems to work for me!����

  • Besides, you can impact your brain function and cognitive abilities by making simple tweaks here and there to your daily routine. Exercise and sound sleep are vital for your brain health, as are certain nutrients, such as omega-3 fats, coconut oil, vitamin B12, vitamin D, probiotics and more.

  • This is an excellent loss of memory treatment “shocking cuno press” (Google it)! I`ve been using it several weeks now and feel my memory and response time has enhanced. I have dyslexia and has assisted me with tasks I do everyday at work and home. This is highly recommended for your brain to keep it more effective as well as functional. Interesting to use..

  • Did you recomond any thing or how to controle or check Alzamiers disease. IT MEANS YOU ARE STILL IN RESEARCHING.anyway thank you for doing this extraordinary
    Research for the better metal health for humanity.��������
