In today's episode we talk about intimacy, arousal, and desire with Susan Bratton, intimacy expert. In my practice, I talk to so many men and women who are struggling with all aspects of intimacy, and in particular women who are experiencing vaginal pain and fear after menopause and after dealing with HPV-related procedures, so I asked Susan if I could interview her on How Humans Heal. A lifelong entrepreneur, Susan is CEO of two companies. The 20, founded in 2019, is a supplement company specializing in libido support for sexual vitality. Personal Life Media, founded in 2006, under which Susan has authored and published 34 books and programs about sex life and intimacy. A frequent and riveting speaker from the stage, on television, on podcasts, summits, in online video, and through her thousands of magazine and website articles, Susan invites lovers to embrace giving and receiving pleasure as a vital element of being alive. I knew she would be the perfect person to help my patients and listeners to learn about what they can do to address intimacy in their lives, because, as I wrote in my book – Master Your Health Reset Your Health – sex (with consent) is a stress recovery activity. But it's not always easy and automatic, especially in long-term relationships and after trauma, childbirth, menopause, and health issues, such as HPV. Susan believes that shame-free, frequent sexual pleasure is every man and woman's birthright. She is dedicated to help people with intimacy skills, sexual problems, bedroom communication, regenerative therapies for libido, and techniques to ignite connection and pleasure between partners. And she describes sex as a “learned skill.” Susan's work focuses on 3 key areas: -Sex advice – intimacy tips, orgasm skills, pleasuring skills and techniques. -Bedroom communication skills – understanding what you want and how to ask for it. -Sexual wellness – safe sex, STIs, and reversing problems that come with aging genitals. A lot of times we think it's not ok to talk about intimacy or sexual issues but in fact it is ok to talk about this and it's even important to talk about this because it is part of our human nature. In the interview I asked Susan if what she teaches can help someone who has a history of sexual abuse, and she said yes. She finds that trauma related to sex is very common, either from our culture, our religion, relationships, shame, lack of knowledge, and our own frustrations. By understanding our bodies and starting with a connection with ourselves, we can heal and still experience intimacy in our lives. Libido, desire and arousal for women Libido is our body-based desire, and when you have any kind of illness (physical or emotional), your libido or “horniness” gets affected. So, libido is directly related to your health. Desire is the emotional game or “head game.” It relates to how do you feel about yourself and your partner. If you are constantly focused on not feeling attractive, your desire will also get affected. The ability to be with the sensations, out of your head and in your body, which you can learn how to do, all love-making becomes more pleasurable. Arousal is the time it takes for blood to flow to the genitals (approximately 20 min for women) so that it has more surface area and, when it's stimulated, it has more pleasure signals sent to the brain, which is what makes orgasm possible. You can teach your body how to have an orgasm. Sex, and orgasm, is also a stress recovery activity because it increases oxytocin levels, an anti-stress hormone. There are studies that show that people that have orgasms regularly have a decreased death rate even. What prevents women from enjoying sex and how to fix it For women, the most common situations that occur as we age are: -Loss of lubrication -Decreasing sensation -Difficulty achieving orgasms -Painful intercourse -Urinary incontinence -Sagging labia Now, how do we fix all those things? We talk about something called sexual biohacking which is taking what you have and making it better through treatments similar to those used to take care of our faces and our bodies. There are also supplements such as nitric oxide that help with blood flow and lubrication issues. And there are devices, such as an intra-vaginal device called vFit Gold, which can help with incontinence, vaginal laxity (which comes from thinning tissue) and lubrication. You can order this approved device to use at home. Another thing that helps with these issues is FemiWave, which is a procedure in a practitioner's office that uses pulse waves to repair blood vessels, improving blood flow to the vagina. It helps with increased sensitivity and lubrication, as well as strengthening, tightening and improved physical appearance, so it helps enhance sexual fulfillment and function. The last thing that can help with all this is the Orgasm Shot. The O-shot is a non-invasive, procedure performed by specially trained practitioners. First blood is drawn from the patient. A centrifuge is used to isolate the platelets, containing the body's natural growth factors, from the patient's own blood. This nutrient-rich, PRP solution is then injected back into the clitoris and upper vagina, to the area that generates a sexual response, commonly known as the “Orgasm-Spot” or “G-spot.” This shot can help with sexual desire, natural lubrication, urinary incontinence, frequency and intensity of orgasms and arousal from G-spot stimulation. These are non-invasive regenerative treatments that turn back the clock on aging and can give you wonderful and youthful sexual function. -Orgasmic cross-training for women -The notion with orgasmic cross-training is that you can have orgasms from direct clitoral gland stimulation, from G-spot stimulation and from intra-vaginal stimulation. -Different types of self-stimulation are going to teach you how to have orgasms more easily from partnered stimulation. They also help to tonify muscles and improve lubrication. For this you can use self-pleasuring tools at home. These toys don't make you addicted to them, they make it easier to have orgasms with partners and they don't ruin your ability to orgasm they enhance it. And remember, sex is a mindfulness practice.

(5:55) Steve hints about “dry January” and asks Dr. Gladden to speak about it. (8:11) Dr. Gladden reveals that there may be some value to “dry January” but that it's more important to ask yourself about your relationship with alcohol and what you want it to be. (10:01) Dr. Gladden adds that some people discover that they are alcoholics when they confront their relationship with alcohol. (12:03) Dr. Gladden expresses that fasting has many benefits. (14:40) Dr. Gladden notes that it is much better to skip dinner than breakfast and suggests that fasting is not harmful but eating too much food in one sitting after fasting is unhealthy.

(28:02) Dr. Gladden points out that you lose sodium and fluid in the sauna, too, and hydrating is important. (29:10) Dr. Gladden advises readers to take deeper looks and read studies in detail when they are posted or released in the news as they may not apply to them and also take other factors at play. (31:39) Dr. Gladden suggests that in dealing with studies, you must look at them through your own lenses to know what works. (33:25) Dr. Gladden advocates that you are better off maximizing your own NAD production. (35:17) Dr. Gladden mentions how Sinclair actually popularized NMN as the best molecule to allow people to make NAD. (37:10) Dr. Gladden believes that NMN will not go away any time soon. (38:46) Dr. Gladden insinuates that NAD may not be suitable for cancer patients.

TITLE: Incarnation Humility TEXT: Philippians 2:5-7 Matthew 20:26-28 – “But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be your slave, even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Matthew 5:3 – “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.” John 13:14-15 – “If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you.” “Incarnation” Incarnation is the word used to explain how the second member of the Trinity entered into human history in flesh as the God-man Jesus Christ. Incarnation Humility… 1 – EMULATING, NOT IGNORING CHRIST'S EXAMPLE – V.5 Philippians 2:3-4 – “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or conceit, but [notice it] in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests but also to the interests of others.” 2 – YIELDING, NOT GRASPING FOR POSITION – V.6 3 – SERVING, NOT INSISTING ON PROMINENCE – V.7a J.I Packer – “For the Son of God to empty himself and become poor meant a laying aside of glory; a voluntary restraint of power; an acceptance of hardship, isolation, ill-treatment, malice, and misunderstanding; finally, a death that involved such agony—spiritual even more than physical—that his mind nearly broke under the prospect of it. It meant love to the uttermost for unlovely men…” J.I Packer – “It is our shame and disgrace today that so many Christians—I will be more specific: so many of the soundest and most orthodox Christians—go through this world in the spirit of the priest and the Levite in our Lord's parable, seeing human needs all around them, but averting their eyes and passing by on the other side. That is not the Christmas spirit. But it is the spirit of some Christians—alas, they are many—whose ambition in life seems limited to building a nice middle-class Christian home, and making nice middle-class Christian friends, and bringing up their children in nice middle-class Christian ways, and who leave the marginalized of the community, Christian and non-Christian, to get on as best they can. The Christmas spirit does not shine out in the Christian snob.” 4 – DECREASING, NOT INCREASING IN SELF-PROMOTION– V.7b C.S Lewis – "In the Christian story, God descends to re-ascend. He comes down; …down to the very roots and sea-bed of the nature he has created. But he goes down to come up again and bring the whole ruined world up with Him… One has the picture of a strong man stooping lower and lower to get himself underneath some great complicated burden. He must stoop in order to lift, he must almost disappear under the load before he incredibly straightens his back and marches off with the whole mass swaying on his shoulders… In this descent and re-ascent everyone will recognize a familiar pattern: a thing written all over the world. It is the pattern of all vegetable life. It must belittle itself into something hard, small and deathlike, it must fall into the ground: thence the new life re-ascends…The doctrine of the incarnation, if accepted, puts this principle even more emphatically at the center. The pattern is there in Nature because it was first there in God."

The Green Mediterranean DietImagine being able to improve the Mediterranean Diet with a few changes. Is the new "Green" Mediterranean Diet the ultimate hack? The Green Mediterranean Diet (Green-Med) has become the hottest version of the MED diet yet.Advantages of the Green Mediterranean DietThere are three advantages to Green-MedLess Fatty LiverDecreased risk of heart diseaseLess Visceral FatFatty LiverNon-alcoholic fatty liver disease is the number one cause of liver failure in the United States. It surpassed alcoholic liver disease as the number one reason for liver transplants. But how do you get fatty liver?Is fatty liver caused by sugar or fat or both?Low-Carb enthusiasts blame fructose, or almost any sugar, as the cause of fatty liver disease. Although the latest boogyman is "seed oils." On the other hand, vegans will blame saturated fats.But sugars in mice are not the same as sugars in men.Fatty liver appears to be a byproduct of obesity, excess calories, and genetics.Reducing fatty liverAfter weight loss surgery, people rapidly lose weight, including in their liver.But people on the Green Mediterranean Diet lost more weight in their liver than those with the standard Mediterranean diet.Visceral FatBelly fat is one of the hardest fats to get rid of. As people age, belly fat increases. So when women go through menopause, they increase belly fat. And lowering belly fat is best done through weight loss with a high-fiber diet and cardiovascular exercise. But Green-Med appears to lower it even more.Cardiovascular Risk FactorsAlthough MED is known for reducing the risk of heart disease, Green-Med seems superior.Implementing the green Mediterranean DietThe difference between the green and standard Mediterranean diet28 grams of walnuts a day - about one ounce3-4 cups of green tea per day100 grams per day of frozen MankaiReduction in red meatGreen Tea is EasyThere are more polyphenols in it than in black tea - so it's easier to drink.Adding walnuts is easy; they are also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids.Decreasing red meat isn't difficult.Finding Mankai or duckweed - well, you can't in the United StatesNo one has reproduced the data about the Green Mediterranean Diet - perhaps because they can't find those frozen cubes of duckweed.

If you look at fertility rates over recent decades, the data is shocking. Sperm counts and testosterone levels have dropped, the incidence of miscarriages has risen, and overall ability to reproduce is on the decline. From an evolutionary standpoint, human fertility is a critical part of our health. And like many other issues plaguing our society, there's a lot we can do to make a positive impact on our overall reproductive health. On this episode of The Model Health Show, Mike Mutzel from High-Intensity Health is back to discuss what's behind declining fertility rates, like endocrine-disrupting chemicals and other environmental factors. You're going to hear simple, natural, and accessible ways to boost testosterone and balance hormonal health for both men and women. This episode contains important conversations on human reproductive health, the role of testosterone for overall wellness, and why walking is an indispensable human behavior. We're also going to talk about the adverse effects of hormonal birth control, and why building muscle should be a goal for everyone. Listen in, take good notes, and enjoy this interview with my friend, Mike Mutzel! In this episode you'll discover: The shocking statistics on declining fertility. How sperm motility rates are expected to change in the next few decades. Why endocrine-disrupting chemicals are hurting our hormones. The importance of preconception planning and nutrition. Which specific foods you should eat organic, and why. Why filtered water is critical for hormonal health. How your cup of coffee could be exposing you to microplastics. What the contamination theory of obesity is. How microplastics disrupt the gut barrier and microbiome. The link between muscle mass and testosterone. How many steps per day is correlated with higher testosterone levels. Why you should aim to walk after a meal. How to encourage your children to walk more. What thermal stress is. The link between metabolism, osteoarthritis, and inflammation. What DHEA is, and when to utilize it. How hormonal birth control suppresses fertility. The importance of building muscle for overall health and vitality. Items mentioned in this episode include: Foursigmatic.com/model -- Get an exclusive 10% discount on your daily health elixirs!

What Therapists Should Know About Sexual Health, Monkey Pox, and the Echoes of the AIDS Epidemic: An Interview with Mallory Garrett, LMFT Curt and Katie interview Mallory Garrett about sexual health as well as the current concerns related to Monkey Pox. We discuss what therapists usually get wrong when working with sexual health, what therapists need to know about STIs, as well as Monkey Pox. We talk about the relevant history of the HIV/AIDs epidemic and the community responses to Monkey Pox. We also look at how therapists can be most helpful to clients within our scope of practice. Resources to stay up to date with Monkey Pox and sexual health are also included in the show notes. Transcripts for this episode will be available at mtsgpodcast.com! An Interview with Mallory Garrett, LMFT Mallory Garrett is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California and New York. She graduated with a BA in Comparative Literature from UCLA and an MS in Counseling from CSU-Northridge. She began working in the social services sector as a Resident Services Intern with a low-income housing corporation for people living with HIV/AIDS and other chronic health conditions. She continued working in this field during her traineeship and internships as she worked towards licensure. She loves speaking to therapists about destigmatizing HIV/AIDS and STIs and has co-facilitated a workshop through Simple Practice Learning. When not working she enjoys going to the theater and traveling. In this podcast episode, we talk about sexual health and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) We talk about sexual health broadly as well as the recent concerns about Monkey Pox and the historical context of HIV/AIDs. What do therapists get wrong when working with sexual health? “When you're working with someone who is in a mismatched libido relationship, oftentimes we look at it and say, well, the long-term relationship is not about sex, it shouldn't be about sex. It's about other things. It's about, you know, companionship, and friendship and mutual respect for your partner. And those are definitely important. And those are the cornerstones of our relationship. But sex is also a cornerstone of a relationship.” – Mallory Garrett, LMFT Lack of education, or education that solely focuses on reproduction Fear about scope of practice when addressing folks who are being treated medically Lack of understanding and exploration of libido mismatches Downplaying the importance of sex in our clients' lives The moralistic or puritanical nature of how many people approach sex What do therapists need to know about sexual health, STIs, and Monkey Pox? Monkey Pox is not technically a STI, but is primarily transmitted sexually in the US The stigma and concerns of being ignored, especially from those who lived through the HIV/AIDS epidemic Gay Rights and Sexual Liberation has relevance to these diseases The extreme societal bias toward the gay community during that time, medical neglect The emergence of Monkey Pox brought back the fears, stigma, and neglect How can therapists help therapists have discussions related to Monkey Pox or STIs? Approaching sexually transmitted infections with a harm reduction lens Empowering clients to make decisions Referring folks to their local public health department for information on vaccination What is Monkey Pox? Monkey Pox does not seem to be spread asymptomatically The lesions are very painful and are the primary reason for hospitalization Primarily being spread through close intimate contact by men who have sex with men Monkey Pox is typically not fatal, but there are two different strains with different fatality rates How do therapists support folks who have Monkey Pox? Push back against judgment and shame, checking own bias Meeting clients where they are Decreasing isolation through virtual sessions Understanding the pain related to the lesions, as well as the potential disfigurement How can therapists stay up to date on sexual health issues, including Monkey Pox? Follow CDC and WHO online Follow AIDS activists who are following Monkey Pox Scroll down for links from Mallory Why is it important for therapists to step into advocacy for our patients? “More than an expert, I would describe myself as an advocate, because it is one of those things where it's so hard sometimes to stay up to date with all the science and the details. And ultimately, like as therapists especially, we don't need to know the science and the details. We need to know the gist, but not the specifics. I don't need to know what viral strain, etc., to have empathy and understanding for my clients.” – Mallory Garrett, LMFT Providing empathy and compassion regardless of our medical understanding Doctors and other medical providers are not perfect, so it is important for clients to have good questions and feel empowered Encouraging folks with lived experiences to sit at the table when policy decisions are being made Our Generous Sponsor for this episode of the Modern Therapist's Survival Guide: Thrizer Thrizer is a new modern billing platform for therapists that was built on the belief that therapy should be accessible AND clinicians should earn what they are worth.

According to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, anxiety is on the rise among adolescents. By 2020, 5.6 million young people in the US had been diagnosed with anxiety. And nothing can trigger anxiety like testing day. Peak certification testing season is fast approaching, so we wanted to empower our educators with tactics to decrease your students' testing anxiety. Our fabulous CERTIFIED Ambassador, Damiano Mastandrea, gives some fabulous suggestions. Damiano Mastrandrea is a Career and Technical Education Director at the Brooklyn STEAM Center. He manages the CTE portfolio of the school to ensure that they are highly relevant and rigorous. He also strategizes various career readiness approaches through workplace immersion programs supported by data-driven decisions. Damiano is a big believer in changing education as a system that works for everyone instead of the selected few and pursuing education to all corners. His passion for education has led him to earn three college degrees including a doctorate, as well last 26 industry certifications, in which a good portion of them are through Certiport. In this episode, we talk with Damiano about the basics of testing anxiety. He offers valuable strategies to help alleviate testing anxiety before, during, and after their certification exam. We also discuss how you can talk to your students about their mental health, and how to create a calm and supportive environment that shows them they can succeed.

A headline from an Israeli study says that sperm counts are down 62% worldwide in the last 50 years! It's not good news and Dr. Martin says it's caused by a decrease in testosterone in men. In Dr. Martin's clinical experience, 90% of men over 40 have symptoms of low testosterone, and it gets worse. Most men over the age of 50 have higher estrogen and lower testosterone levels than their spouse! Join Dr. Martin as he reviews this study and shares what men can do to increase their testosterone.
Daily Word By your faith you receive the desires of your heart and are successful in the calling God has given you. Therefore, your faith is the most precious possession you have, so you must be careful not to lose it. The most common way Christians lose their faith is by not growing daily in faith, because if you aren't increasing in faith, you are decreasing in faith. The Art of Clarity | https://amosjohnsonjr.com/clarity A live online experience designed to help you will receive clarity from the Holy Spirit on your calling and the next steps. Podcast Partner | https://amosjohnsonjr.com/partner Amos Johnson I am all about helping people succeed at the calling that God has given them because a fulfilled life comes from clearly knowing what God has called you to do and doing it. Therefore, I create a combination of content, communities, and programs to develop people's faith and strengthen all areas of their life because success God's way is a holistic endeavor that involves their faith and every area of their life.
How can we decrease our opponent's hitting efficiency, making it easier on our team to produce enough points to win the match? On this episode of The VolleyPod we discuss specifics about how to hinder the opponent's scoring by following several (relatively) controllable principles. The principles found in this episode can help any team to be more competitive immediately. Then, Tod and Davis go over some ideas for how to start off the season with an experienced team. The ideas that we cover on this topic can help your team get off to a fast start at the beginning of the season. Finally, we share Davis' first project, The VolleyNerd Podcast, with our listeners.

Running, especially training and racing hard, introduces large amounts of load & stress on your muscles and bodily systems. There are times that altering or reducing your training load can be critical to preventing serious injury. This is especially the case when recovering after a goal race (specifically the marathon), fighting off the beginning pain or niggles, or when returning from an injury. Nathan and Matt explore different strategies to help you recover from big races and keep your training consistent even in the midst of occasional pain. They share tips for water running and take a look at the AlterG and Lever Pro treadmill systems which actually reduce the force of gravity on your body while running. For a deeper look at these three options, be sure to read the in-depth article on our website. The Subjective: how long do you take off after a goal race?

In this short podcast in our electrical myths series, Bryan talks about some inductive current myths. There is a common myth surrounding voltage drop in inductive loads. When you decrease the voltage in a circuit with a resistive load, you'll see a relatively proportional drop in resistance (ohms) and current in accordance with Ohm's law. So, we'll see a decrease in current, but we have to keep in mind that load temperatures also affect the resistance (and the current, by extension). Some people will claim that reducing the voltage in an inductive load (like a motor or compressor) will increase the current. That is actually generally a myth; many people believe this myth because the current drop is NOT proportional, unlike in resistive loads. The resistance that shows up in a motor is called inductive reactance, which is an opposing magnetic field that creates back electromotive force (back EMF) and impedes the circuit. Back EMF and inductive reactance contribute to the impedance or total resistance of the circuit. Decreasing the voltage may cause the resistance to increase, as some of the work will start contributing to heat instead of mechanical motion; the motor derates, becomes less efficient, and draws more current than it needs, but it doesn't actually draw more total current. However, some variable-speed motors on VFDs may draw more current because the motor module speeds up the motor to make up for the voltage deficiency, static pressure, etc. ECMs also fall into this category and may draw more current if the motor module or VFD calls for it. However, in terms of simple electrical math without VFD logic, the current won't typically increase if the voltage drops, even in inductive loads.

Do you skip breakfast often or maybe not enough throughout the day? This week at Nutrition's My Life I'm helping you understand what could be causing your bloating, digestive issues, slowing down your metabolism, or even be contributing to hormonal issues? If you're skipping meals or undereating you could be: 1. Decreasing your pancreatic enzymes causing you to be more bloated and even malabsorb your food 2. Decrease peristalsis (aka slow down your digestive tract) and can contribute to an increase in the bad bacteria (dysbiosis). 3. Lowering your BMR (basal metabolic rate) 4. Decreasing your nutritional intake and makes it harder to meet your nutrient demands 5. Increases blood sugar dysregulation 6. Increases risk of hormonal imbalances.

“Society is formed through humans cooperating and… the whole is greater than the sum of the parts; when people get together and collaborate and cooperate, we produce something that is way more impressive and better than any single individual can produce.”— Phil GeigerPhil Geiger is the Managing Director of Concierge Services at Unchained Capital. In this interview, we discuss how a robust protocol and monetary policy, a vital utility for energy producers and a committed community of hodlers, makes Bitcoin an extremely low-risk investment.- - - - No other scalable commodity, currency or asset has as robust a fixed supply issuance as Bitcoin. 21 million coins. That's it. The rough consensus governance process, miners' financial incentives, and a highly decentralized node verification process combine to make this digital scarcity rigid. No altcoin can compete. “Digital scarcity is a one-time phenomenon” - Phil Geiger, April 2020.There are those that have been pushing the edges of this assumed commitment. They are motivated by different concerns, chiefly that a declining supply will impact security: how can a 51% attack be avoided when the volume of Bitcoin issued becomes significantly low and eventually finishes? Can transaction fees alone secure the network?But it is the fixed supply schedule that supports Bitcoin's value, from which all other considerations follow. According to Phil Geiger, these 21 million coins already exist. Both in terms of the supply schedule and the fixed limit. This is what underpins the huge investment by miners: a transparent monetary policy, and scarcity that supports the price. Changes to this could seriously damage minings assimilation into energy production.This is what makes, in Phil's view, Bitcoin an extremely low-risk investment compared to other assets (both digital and physical). The proof is in the hodling behaviour. Using Bitcoin is vital for the transition of Bitcoin from a defensive store of value to a productive medium of exchange, the fact that those hodling Bitcoin for more than a year is at an ATH shows investors still remain extremely confident in its long-term success.So, what about long-term security? Decreasing block rewards will incentivise miners to maximise the use of block space. Combined with more users this should drive up Bitcoin transaction prices, thereby supporting the transition to a post-block reward world. The issue is whether there are enough incentives to ensure miners don't game the system. This needs to be debated.

Decreasing cholesterol: drugs and dietThere is a persistent belief that lifestyle can take care of all cholesterol problems. Lifestyle can make things worse, but once things are worse, it cannot make things better. Once you have disease, or cholesterol is higher, you need treatment often beyond lifestyle management. This distresses many people, who wish to have control over their fate. High https://www.yourdoctorsorders.com/2012/05/hdl-the-good-cholesterol-isnt-good/ (cholesterol) is one of the main causes of heart attacks, strokes, and peripheral vascular disease. You can lower cholesterol through diet and exercise by as much as 15 percent. Lifestyle changes are the first choice to decrease cholesterol. Modern drugs, however, will lower cholesterol levels far more than diet or exercise. The progressive changes of a vesselThe normal artery, as shown below, is a free-flowing https://www.yourdoctorsorders.com/2022/08/inflammation-and-the-mediterranean-diet/ (blood) vessel. When a person is in their late teens, there is already fatty formation on the inside of the vessel wall. As more fat is deposited in the vessel wall, blood flow decreases, leading to ischemia in the end organ. Angina, or heart pain, occurs when there is insufficient blood flow to the heart secondary to an artery narrowed by plaque.Factors contributing to atherosclerotic plaque formationDamage to the blood vessel begins the process of Smoking Hypertension High blood sugars Diets rich in saturated fats and refined grains However, the lower the level of LDL, the less risk those factors become, as you shall see. Anatomy of the Blood VesselIf you examine the autopsy specimen of the coronary artery above, the blood flows through that lumen. The inner wall, the wall the blood comes into contact with, is called the endothelium. There are three layers to the wall of an artery: Tunica intima Tunica Media Tunica Adventicia Atherosclerosis begins when the cholesterol transport protein enters the wall of the tunica media, whose first layer is the endothelium. Discovery of LDLIn 1954, Dr. John Gofman https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/13197415/ (reported) the discovery of LDL and HDL. These were the particles found when he separated plasma cholesterol-carrying lipoproteins with an ultracentrifuge. Gofman was the first to note that heart attack patients had high LDL https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/21291675/ (levels). The correlation of high LDL and heart attacks has been called “https://www.cell.com/cell/fulltext/S0092-8674(15)00079-3?_returnURL=https%3A%2F%2Flinkinghub.elsevier.com%2Fretrieve%2Fpii%2FS0092867415000793%3Fshowall%3Dtrue#bib31 (one of the most profound epidemiologic correlations in all of medicine).” High LDL levels have been shown to correlate with atherosclerosis in all species studied. High LDL and AtherosclerosisThe higher the LDL level, the faster atherosclerosis develops. Factors that increase atherosclerosis are those which injure blood vessels: smoking, hypertension, hyperglycemia, and genetic factors that predispose endothelium to early injury. High LDL levels can lead to heart attacks in children as young as 6 years old. This rare form of homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia inspired Brown and Goldstein to elucidate the genetic defect in the receptor for LDL. Discovery of the LDL receptor defecthttps://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/3513311/ ( Brown and Goldstein) discovered that when LDL receptors are defective, it leads to the following: LDL particles circulate for a long time This leads to an increase in plasma levels of LDL As a result, more deposits are made into the arteries Creating atherosclerotic plaques Lowering LDL by feedbackTo keep blood LDL constant, your body uses a feedback mechanism. As your LDL levels increase, the target tissues produce more receptors to take up the LDL. If the LDL receptor is defective, the liver continues to increase...
