    Over 50% of Women Have THIS?!

    Over 50% of Women Have THIS?!

    Around 20% to 50% of all women will have some sort of fibroid or endometriosis before the age of 50. A fibroid is a growth on the uterus that is not cancerous.



    Research has shown that vitamin D may help shrink the size of fibroids.



    If you’re vitamin D deficient, your risk of developing uterine fibroids is much higher. Vitamin D naturally inhibits the enzyme aromatase, which converts androgens to estrogen. Vitamin D can also affect the fibroid itself. If you have enough vitamin D, certain tumor and cancer cells will commit suicide.



    Dr. Bruce Hollis has done extensive research on the benefits of vitamin D but says a lot of research on vitamin D has been rejected by top medical journals!



    Around 50,000 IUs of vitamin D daily may help shrink fibroids in the uterus. You’ll also need to take the following vitamin D cofactors:

    •500 mcg vitamin K2

    •800 mg magnesium

    •50 mg zinc

    •Vitamin B6 and boron (recommended dose on the bottle)



    More tips to help shrink fibroids naturally:

    • Get on the ketogenic diet

    • Increase your consumption of cruciferous vegetables

    • Limit dairy consumption

    What Causes Eye Floaters and Dry Eyes?

    What Causes Eye Floaters and Dry Eyes?

    In this podcast, we’ll discuss some common eye problems and the nutrients that can help. Dry eyes and night blindness are often caused by vitamin A deficiency.



    Vitamin A deficiency can be caused by a diet high in junk food or an issue with the gallbladder.



    Egg yolks, liver, butter, and cod liver oil are the best sources of vitamin A. Plants are not a good source of vitamin A because they only contain the precursor, beta-carotene.



    Zinc is essential for vitamin A to work properly in the body. Red meat, oysters, shellfish, and liver are the best sources of zinc.



    Retinopathy is often caused by diabetes. Excessive amounts of glucose can create oxidation in the nervous system. Benfotiamine, a fat-soluble form of vitamin B1, can penetrate nerve tissue.



    Consuming protein with sugar causes a chemical reaction called glycation, which can cause floaters in the eye. A low-carb or carnivore diet may help. Intermittent and prolonged fasting allow your body to recycle damaged proteins through autophagy and may help with floaters.



    Macular degeneration is often said to be age-related. However, blue light, alcohol, smoking, sugar, and seed oils may contribute to it. To improve eye health, try lowering your seed oil consumption and increasing your intake of omega-3 fats.



    Lutein, zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin are carotenoids that protect your eyes against macular degeneration. You can find these compounds in the following foods:

    • Green vegetables

    • Orange fruits and vegetables

    • Yellow fruits and vegetables

    • Egg yolks

    • Seafood (Salmon, shrimp)

    • Grass-fed meat



    Glaucoma is an eye condition in which excessive pressure causes damage to the back of the eye. Research has shown that vitamin D can be an excellent remedy for glaucoma. High amounts of vitamin D can also be beneficial for cataracts.



    N-acetyl-carnosine and zinc contain antioxidants that protect the eye and improve cataracts. Dark purple, red, orange, and yellow fruits and vegetables contain antioxidants that help support eye health.

    1 Tablespoon a Day Burns Belly Fat

    1 Tablespoon a Day Burns Belly Fat

    Today, I’m going to tell you how to lose belly fat and burn stubborn fat fast. If you have a slow metabolism, this solution is for you!



    People who think they have a slow metabolism actually have an efficient metabolism. This means their body requires less fuel. To lose stubborn fat, you must get your body to waste more fuel.



    The mitochondria are the body's “energy factories,” turning food into stored energy, known as ATP. Uncoupling occurs when the mitochondria make less ATP and more heat.



    Resveratrol is a natural mitochondrial uncoupler. It’s found in grapes, cranberries, blueberries, dark chocolate, pistachios, and Japanese knotweed.



    Resveratrol is also made into a powder supplement. One tablespoon per day can help reduce belly fat by encouraging mitochondrial uncoupling.



    Ketones can cause mitochondrial uncoupling and improve the function of the mitochondria. Cold therapy, exercise, fasting, green tea, saunas, and jacuzzis also cause mitochondrial uncoupling.



    The following factors can hinder mitochondrial uncoupling, making it difficult to burn fat:

    • Excess calories

    • Aging

    • Sedentary lifestyle

    • Heavy metal exposure

    • Certain medications (statins, beta-blockers, Metformin, antibiotics)

    Is Ginger The New Superfood?

    Is Ginger The New Superfood?

    In this video, we’ll discuss some of ginger’s health benefits and when it may not be an appropriate remedy.



    For thousands of years, ginger has been used as a powerful remedy for many conditions.



    Some of the amazing benefits of ginger include:

    • Antimicrobial properties

    • Anti-inflammatory properties

    • Anti-diabetic properties

    • Anti-cancer properties

    • Helping with menstrual pain

    • Helping with arthritis

    • Increasing HDL

    • Improving heartburn



    One of the most well-known uses of ginger is its ability to relieve nausea. Ginger can help with nausea associated with chemotherapy, pregnancy, menstruation, and surgery.



    Ginger has some contraindications, so it may not always be the best remedy for you. Don’t take ginger if you’re on Warfarin or other blood thinners like aspirin. Ginger helps thin the blood, so you also won’t want to take it if you have a bleeding disorder.



    Ginger inhibits insulin, so don’t take it if you’re on insulin. Ginger can lower blood pressure, so avoid it if you’re taking blood pressure medication. Ginger also stimulates the gallbladder, so don’t consume it if you have gallstones.

    The MOST Serious Symptom of Potassium Deficiency

    The MOST Serious Symptom of Potassium Deficiency

    In this podcast, we’ll discuss the causes and symptoms of potassium deficiency. We need a lot of potassium—around 4700 mg per day! Most people eat a lot of junk food or processed foods high in salt and not enough potassium, which throws off the sodium-potassium ratio. Your body needs a 2:1 ratio of potassium to sodium.



    Every cell in the body has a sodium-potassium pump that helps to generate electrical current around the cell, which powers the nervous and muscular systems.



    Potassium is also important for the health of your blood vessels. Low potassium is one of the leading causes of high blood pressure; however, it isn’t often used in conventional medicine as a treatment. Over 90% of high blood pressure is essential hypertension, which means the cause is “unknown.”



    Here are some signs of potassium deficiency:

    •Fatigue

    •Muscular issues

    •Constipation

    •Tremors

    •Abnormal heart rhythm

    •Mental issues (delirium, hallucinations, psychosis, depression)

    •Headaches

    •Low back pain

    •Dizziness

    •Nocturia

    •Edema

    •Increased pulse rate

    •Increased risk of stroke



    The most serious symptom of a potassium deficiency is sudden cardiac death. If you have low potassium, your risk for sudden cardiac death increases by 10x.



    You could end up with low potassium if you’re not consuming enough potassium-rich foods like leafy greens, squash, nuts, shellfish, bone broth, avocado, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds.



    Other potassium deficiency causes include the following:

    •Consuming refined sugar, refined starches, and refined grains

    •Stress

    •Steroids

    •Gut inflammation

    •Alcohol consumption

    This Can REVERSE GLAUCOMA?!

    This Can REVERSE GLAUCOMA?!

    In this podcast, we’re going to talk about one of the best natural remedies for glaucoma. Glaucoma is a condition where there is increased pressure inside the eyeball. This puts pressure on the optic nerve and can diminish your vision and cause blindness.



    Around 80 million people in the world have glaucoma, and 50% of them are unaware that they have it. Research suggests that glaucoma could be an autoimmune disease, which would explain why this natural remedy is so effective!



    In 2014, a study involving over 6,000 people in Korea showed a very high correlation between people with low vitamin D and glaucoma. People with glaucoma had three times more problems with the vitamin D receptor.



    A German doctor named Dr. Harald Schelle uses high doses of vitamin D for numerous eye problems. Many autoimmune cases of glaucoma have a genetic problem with the vitamin D receptor, the conversion from the inactive to the active form of vitamin D, or an issue with vitamin D absorption. Collectively, these problems are referred to as vitamin D resistance.



    To combat vitamin D resistance, you must increase your dosage. The standard recommendation for vitamin D is 20 ng per ml, however this is outdated and inaccurate. Dr. Schelle says we should have between 100 to 150 ng per ml of vitamin D.



    Dr. Coimbra from Brazil has also seen excellent results using high doses of vitamin D for autoimmune conditions. He recommends starting with 1000 IUs of vitamin D per kilogram of body weight. For example, a person weighing 84 kilograms would need 84,000 IUs of vitamin D3 daily.



    To minimize the risk of calcium buildup in the arteries, try the following:

    •Don’t take a calcium supplement

    •Reduce your consumption of calcium-rich foods

    •Drink 2.5 liters of fluid daily

    •Take 100 mcg of vitamin K2 for every 10,000 IUs of vitamin D3

    •Take 600 mg of magnesium daily
