In my latest podcast episode, I had the honor of speaking with Dr. Kim Williams about crucial topics like cholesterol and hypertension. I was particularly interested in his treatment strategies for patients who continue to have high cholesterol levels despite adopting healthier lifestyles. Dr. Williams introduced the 'prevent calculator', a new tool that considers kidney disease in its assessment. He underscored the importance of addressing key risk factors, such as smoking and diabetes. Additionally, he explained how different types of LDL cholesterol affect artery health and discussed the connection between smoking and oxidized LDL. Notably, Dr. Williams mentioned that the prevent calculator has been updated to focus on social determinants of health, moving away from including race as a factor.

This week, Dr. Kahn touches on mini-topics regarding HDL-cholesterol and the brain, pumpkin seeds and hair growth, lipoprotein(a), and others. He then shifts focus to the main topic: a 6-year update on the PESA trial in Madrid, followed by a look at the upcoming PrevCAD trial targeting young people. Just like at the Kahn Center, the PESA study in Madrid screened 'healthy' individuals aged 40-55 for silent atherosclerosis. It found that, at the 6-year mark, younger participants with high blood pressure and high LDL-cholesterol experienced rapid worsening of their condition. The PrevCAD trial in NYC will randomize young volunteers, aged 20-39 with silent atherosclerosis, to either receive aggressive therapy or undergo watchful waiting. Stay tuned for some insightful discoveries ahead.
This episode is brought to you by Rupa University, AG1, and Pendulum. Dietary cholesterol from saturated fat is often thought to be the cause of high LDL cholesterol and blocked arteries. But we now know from updated research that it's much more complicated than that. Standard cholesterol testing is outdated because it doesn't check for particle size and particle number, information that is needed to tell what's really going on with your cholesterol. Statins are often prescribed to lower LDL cholesterol, but often do not address the root of the problem and can cause very uncomfortable side effects.In today's episode, I talk with Drs. Elizabeth Boham, Ronald Krauss, and Aseem Malhotra about the true role of cholesterol and what is really behind heart disease.Dr. Elizabeth Boham is a physician and nutritionist who practices Functional Medicine at The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, MA. Through her practice and lecturing she has helped thousands of people achieve their goals of optimum health and wellness. She witnesses the power of nutrition every day in her practice and is committed to training other physicians to utilize nutrition in healing.Dr. Ronald Krauss is a Senior Scientist at Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute, a Professor of Medicine at UCSF, and an Adjunct Professor of Nutritional Sciences at UC Berkeley. Dr. Krauss's research aims to understand how to best prevent cardiovascular disease through early detection and management of its major risk factors: most notably, elevated levels of blood cholesterol and lipoproteins. He has published more than 450 research articles and reviews on metabolic, genetic, dietary, and drug effects on plasma lipoproteins and the risk of coronary artery disease, with more than 100,000 citations of this work.Dr. Aseem Malhotra is an NHS-trained consultant cardiologist and visiting Professor of Evidence-Based Medicine at the Bahiana School of Medicine and Public Health in Salvador, Brazil. He is a founding member of Action on Sugar. In 2015, he became the youngest member to be appointed to the board of trustees of UK health charity The King's Fund. He is a pioneer of the lifestyle medicine movement in the UK and in 2018 was ranked by software company Onalytica as the number one doctor in the world influencing obesity thinking.This episode is brought to you by Rupa University, AG1, and Pendulum.Rupa University is hosting FREE classes and bootcamps for healthcare providers who want to learn more about Functional Medicine testing.

Link to original articleWelcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: Black Box Biology, published by GeneSmith on November 29, 2023 on LessWrong. Suppose you want to decrease your risk of heart disease. The conventional advice goes something like this: Eat a healthier diet with less LDL-cholesterol raising foods Exercise more Keep your blood sugar under control Don't smoke, don't sit too much and don't take 400mg of methamphetamine on a regular basis An alternative strategy might be some kind of genetic intervention. For example, an active clinical trial by Verve Therapeutics aims to treat individuals with inherited high cholesterol by editing the PCSK9 gene. These trials almost always start the same: there's some rare disorder caused by a single gene. We have a strong mechanical understanding of how the gene causes the disorder. We use an animal model with an analogous disorder and show that by changing the gene we fix or at least ameliorate the condition. This is the traditional approach. And despite being slow and limited in scope, it occasionally produces results like Casgevy, a CRISPR-based treatment for sickle cell and beta thallasemia which was approved by the UK in mid-November. It might cost several million dollars. But it cures sickle cell! That has to count for something. Most diseases, however, are not like sickle cell or beta thalassemia. They are not caused by one gene. They are caused by the cumulative effects of thousands of genes plus environmental factors like diet and lifestyle. If we actually want to treat these disorders, we need to start thinking about biology (and genetic treatments) differently. Black Box Biology I think the conventional approach to genes and disorders is fundamentally stupid. In seeking absolute certainty about cause and effect, it limits itself to a tiny niche with limited importance. It's as if machine learning researchers decided that the best way to build a neural network was to hand tune model parameters based on their intricate knowledge of feature representations. You don't need to understand the mechanism of action. You don't need an animal model of disease. You just need a reasonable expectation that changing a genetic variant will have a positive impact on the thing you care about. And guess what? We already have all that information. We've been conducting genome-wide association studies for over a decade. A medium-sized research team can collect data from 180,000 diabetics and show you 237 different spots in the genome that affect diabetes risk with a certainty level of P < 5*10^-9! In expectation, editing all those variants could decrease someone's diabetes risk to negligible levels. I predict that in the next decade we are going to see a fundamental shift in the way scientists think about the relationship between genes and traits. The way treatments change outcomes is going to become a black box and everyone will be fine with it because it will actually work. We don't need to understand the mechanism of action. We don't need to understand the cellular pathway. We just need enough data to know that when we change this particular base pair from an A to a G, it will reduce diabetes risk by 0.3%. That's enough.

It was Ancel Keys who first presented the theory that cholesterol causes heart disease. His theory turned LDL cholesterol into the bad guy and went on to become the common belief since the mid-1950s. Statin drugs do what they say they do and lower LDL cholesterol, but Dr. Martin asks why you'd want to do that? Cholesterol is essential to our body's functioning and it turns out that lowering your LDL comes with consequences. Join Dr. Martin in today's episode to learn the long-term effects of using statin drugs to lower LDL cholesterol.
If you were raised in the heyday of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter or Snackwell's fat-free cookies, your taste buds are probably quite thrilled that fat isn't nearly as taboo as it used to be. But even though you know that certain fats are good for you, you're not alone if choosing the full-fat option gives you pause. In today's episode, we dug into why we need fat for our physical and mental health, which fats are best, and how much you really need. Looking for high-quality dietary supplements?

I grab the mic to discuss my latest lab test results and how I'm shocked that my ApoB came out much higher than anticipated. This is a protein that can be used to determine heart disease risk. I discuss the differences between Medicine 2.0 (attacking the issue after you have it) and Medicine 3.0 (preventing the issue before it occurs). Below are extra biomarkers that Dr. Peter Attia recommends we get tested. Coronary calcium scan A screening that looks for calcium deposits in the heart's arteries—to determine risk for cardiovascular disease. This test involves a CT scan of your heart, which is then used to give you a calcium score. The higher your score, the more likely you are to develop heart disease. In addition to a standard annual blood test—which includes a basic metabolic panel and a complete blood count (CBC)—Attia also recommends five preventative tests: Biomarker Tests: Lipoprotein (a) (Lp(a)-P): Certain LPA gene expressions are linked to an increased risk for blood vessel diseases, stroke, and heart attack. You only need to get this test done once to uncover your genotype. APOE Gene: This one time test can determine your risk for neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's. ApoB: This test measures ApoB levels, the main protein found in the “bad” low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, and can be used to determine heart disease risk. OGTT with insulin measurements: This test has more sensitivity and specificity than a typical A1C glucose test when used to diagnose pre-diabetes. ALT: This test can indicate fatty liver disease risk. When alanine transaminase (ALT)—an enzyme that is released when your liver is injured or damaged—levels are high, it may indicate that your liver isn't functioning optimally.
Today's episode marks the return of another Ask Me Anything episode where listeners ask Ken and Dawn to weigh in on a wide range of topics. In this go-around, listeners certainly had a lot on their mind. At the top of their list were questions about AI and especially the Bing AI chat bot that reportedly wants to be alive so it can steal nuclear secrets. Ken, who is Fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence, also answered questions about the future of AI and whether AI might one day be able to do a better job of writing fact-based news stories than humans. Other questions listeners submitted asked Ken and Dawn for their take on: The competing recommendations for the daily intake of protein for healthy aging. The future of therapeutic ketosis. What it means for Chat GPT to “hallucinate.” Whether we'll discover the existence of other life in the universe in the next 20 to 50 years. The potential of kratom to help relieve joint and arthritic pain. And at the end of the show, Ken talks about his high school coach in response to a listener asking Ken about some of his mentors when he was a youth. Show notes: [00:02:20] A listener asks Ken if he has heard the story of a Bing AI chat bot telling a reporter that it wanted to be alive, steal nuclear secrets and create a deadly virus. The listener also asks if Ken thinks that AI possessing human aspirations is on the horizon. [00:03:23] A listener asks Ken to explain how Chat GPT works in detail, but also in a way that a lay person can comprehend. [00:06:01] Ken weights in on what it means for Chat GPT to “hallucinate.” [00:08:14] A listener notes in their question that Donald Layman, in his interview on STEM-Talk, suggested a higher protein intake for healthy aging than what the FDA recommends. The listener goes on to note that Valter Longo, a previous STEM-Talk guest, recommended the opposite. The listener notes that Ken and Marcas, who hosted the Don Layman episode, seem to favor Layman's interpretation over Longo's and asks if Ken could elaborate on his position. [00:11:12] A listener mentions that the benefit of a ketogenic diet for metabolic disorders is well established, and notes that the frontiers of therapeutic ketosis, as mentioned in Dom D'Agostino's appearance on STEM-Talk, is very exciting. The listener asks Ken what he would like to see as the next frontier for therapeutic ketosis research. [00:12:41] A listener asks Ken if people should be paying more attention to their ApoB levels instead of their LDL levels. [00:14:39] A listener asks Ken about a paper published in July in Frontiers in Neuroscience, titled: “Overnight Olfactory Enrichment Using an Odorant Diffuser Improves Memory and Modifies Uncinate Fasciculus in Older Adults.” The paper reports that the use of a diffuser with seven different essential oils, a different one for each day of the week, had a remarkable effect on memory. [00:16:55] In light of the John Ioannidis interview on COVID-19 and the discussion of our national response being based on unreliable data, a listener asks Ken and Dawn for their thoughts about the reliability of the COVID tracking data by Johns Hopkins. [00:19:02] A listener asks Ken about a comment he made during the John Ioannidis interview about the substantial decline in trust in our institutions and the media and how reestablishing trust would require more and better transparency and accountability. The listener asks what that transparency and accountability would look like. [00:20:36] A listener asks Ken about Ed Weiler's interview on STEM-Talk, where Ed said that we will be able to prove the existence of other life in the universe in 20 to 50 years. The listener asks if Ken is as confident in this claim as Ed. [00:26:37] A listener asks Ken about the news regarding technology leaders and researchers issuing a warning that new powerful AI tools in development present a profound danger to...

Cholesterol testing is among the most common blood tests run in conventional healthcare, yet it is a perennial source of confusion and, to be honest, abuse by doctors who don't appreciate the full implications of the values. It may surprise you to know that doctors focus on the least helpful values such as total or LDL cholesterol while often ignoring the two genuinely helpful values, HDL cholesterol and triglycerides. HDL for instance is packed with useful insights into your health, as it is a reliable index of metabolic health. Low HDL, that I would define as less than 60 mg/dl, is a reflection of multiple health distortions such as insulin resistance, inflammation, excessive intra-abdominal fat, small LDL particles and VLDL that cause heart disease. You might also be surprised to learn that consuming fats only spikes triglyceride levels for a few hours, whereas the process of your liver converting carbohydrates to triglycerides can cause a much larger increase after six to eight hours or more. Discover the factors that can amplify this process, including insulin resistance, inflammation, excessive intra-abdominal fat, and even dysbiosis and small intestine bacterial overgrowth. The road to cardiovascular health doesn't have to be paved with cholesterol. We'll reveal how VLDL particles and triglyceride levels are intricately linked, why it's essential to keep your triglycerides below 60 milligrams per deciliter, and how higher triglycerides can result in lower HDL levels. Discover how simple dietary changes can lead to lower triglycerides and higher HDL levels, and why measuring LDL particles using NMR lipoprotein analysis offers a more accurate picture than the commonly used LDL cholesterol. Join us as we dispel the myths around cholesterol and empower you to take control of your cardiovascular health.For BiotiQuest probiotics including Sugar Shift, go here.A 15% discount is available for Defiant Health podcast listeners by entering discount code UNDOC15 (case-sensitive) at checkout.*_________________________________________________________________________________Get your 15% Paleovalley discount on fermented grass-fed beef sticks, Bone Broth Collagen, low-carb snack bars and other high-quality organic foods here.* For 12% off every order of grass-fed and pasture-raised meats from Wild Pastures, go here.*Dr. Davis and his staff are financially compensated for promoting BiotiQuest and Paleovalley products.Support the showBooks: Super Gut: The 4-Week Plan to Reprogram Your Microbiome, Restore Health, and Lose Weight Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight and Find Your Path Back to Health; revised & expanded ed
El tratamiento dietético para una persona con hipercolesterolemia, que es el término médico para niveles elevados de colesterol en la sangre, se centra en reducir la ingesta de grasas saturadas y grasas trans, que son las principales culpables de elevar los niveles de colesterol LDL (colesterol "malo") en la sangre. Aquí tienes algunas pautas dietéticas clave para tratar la hipercolesterolemia:Reducción de grasas saturadas y trans:Limita la ingesta de carnes rojas, embutidos, tocino y productos lácteos enteros, ya que son ricos en grasas saturadas.Evita los alimentos procesados que contienen grasas trans parcialmente hidrogenadas.Aumento de grasas saludables:Consume grasas insaturadas, como las que se encuentran en el aceite de oliva, aguacates, nueces y pescados grasos (como el salmón, el atún y el arenque).Incremento de fibra:Incluye alimentos ricos en fibra en tu dieta, como frutas, verduras, legumbres y granos enteros. La fibra soluble en particular puede ayudar a reducir el colesterol LDL.Control de las porciones:Controla el tamaño de las porciones para evitar el exceso de calorías y grasas.Suplementos de esteroles vegetales:Algunas personas con hipercolesterolemia pueden beneficiarse de suplementos de esteroles vegetales, que pueden ayudar a reducir la absorción del colesterol en el intestino.Reducción de azúcares y carbohidratos refinados:Limita la ingesta de azúcares agregados y carbohidratos refinados, ya que pueden contribuir al aumento de los niveles de triglicéridos y al síndrome metabólico.Control del alcohol:Limita la ingesta de alcohol, ya que el exceso de alcohol puede aumentar los niveles de triglicéridos.Pérdida de peso:Si tienes sobrepeso u obesidad, la pérdida de peso puede ayudar a mejorar los niveles de colesterol.Seguimiento médico:Es importante que un profesional de la salud realice un seguimiento de tus niveles de colesterol y te proporcione orientación personalizada.Recuerda que el tratamiento dietético debe ser parte de un enfoque integral para el manejo de la hipercolesterolemia. En algunos casos, puede ser necesario recurrir a medicamentos para reducir el colesterol, en combinación con cambios en la dieta y el estilo de vida. Si tienes hipercolesterolemia, es esencial hablar con un médico o un dietista registrado para desarrollar un plan de alimentación adecuado a tus necesidades individuales.
Today we're going to talk about vitamin K2, and I'm going to share the best source of vitamin K2. While vitamin K1 supports blood clotting, vitamin K2 supports calcium transportation. Vitamin K2 works with vitamin D. Vitamin K2 and vitamin D3 are important to take together. Vitamin D raises calcium in the blood, but vitamin K2 pushes calcium from the blood into the bone. Vitamin K2 also uses LDL cholesterol as part of its transportation process. The health benefits of vitamin K2: • It supports healthy bones • It supports strong teeth • It helps prevent calcium from building up in the arteries, cartilage, and joints • It helps support healthy blood sugar levels • It helps generate ATP (energy) • It supports healthy testosterone levels • It supports the brain Vitamin K1 and vitamin K2 are fat-soluble—low-fat diets may lead to a vitamin K2 deficiency. Cheese, especially hard cheese, is a rich source of vitamin K2, with Muenster cheese at the top of the list. Other foods high in vitamin K2: • Grass-fed butter • Goose liver • Duck liver • Duck fat • Eel • Beef liver • Lamb's liver • Ground beef • Grass-fed hot dogs • High-quality bacon • Pork • Sauerkraut • Cod liver oil

Let's talk about the health benefits of magnesium. Magnesium is a fascinating and important mineral that's involved in over 350 enzymes in the body. Enzymes speed up the chemical reactions in the body, and they don't deplete their energy in the process. Well-known benefits of magnesium: • It supports the heart • It may help with muscle cramping • It supports sleep • It may help reduce anxiety • It may help promote relaxation • It supports the flexibility of the arteries • It may help with headaches • It may help with problems related to the nerves and muscles Surprising benefits of magnesium: 1. It may help regulate LDL cholesterol and triglycerides and increase HDL 2. It helps make ATP (energy in the body) 3. It helps regulate adrenaline, cortisol, and ACTH—and counters oxidative stress from these hormones 4. It's involved in enzymes related to lecithin (the antidote to cholesterol) 5. It's a natural calcium channel blocker, beta blocker, and antithrombotic 6. It helps regulate blood sugar levels 7. It's involved in making DNA Many people don't consume enough magnesium, which can cause a magnesium deficiency and lead to various health issues. Magnesium-rich foods: • Foods high in chlorophyll (dark leafy green vegetables) • Nuts and pumpkin seeds • Dark chocolate (sugar-free) • Sea kelp • Avocado • Low-sodium sea salt Here are the top things that can cause you to become magnesium deficient: • Refined sugar and refined carbs • Alcohol • Diuretics • Diarrhea • Low stomach acid • Certain gene variations The type of magnesium supplement I would take, if needed, is magnesium glycinate.
Joni Hanson Davis is the female founder of Kirkland, Washington Femtech company Beli, modernizing reproductive, prenatal, and fertility health based on the latest nutritional science with one small, yet significant act of a daily prenatal vitamin for both men and women. After a long successful career leading Fortune 500 companies and technology startups to IPO, Davis founded Beli in 2018 with a personal mission to address the growing crisis of infertility and modernize the stagnant prenatal vitamin market. The fertility market is a $24B market, and yet prenatal vitamins still haven't caught up with modern nutritional science. 50% of all infertility can be traced to male infertility and nutrition plays a major role in successful pregnancy outcomes and science led Beli to look deeper at how nutrition plays a vital role in sperm health, launching the first modern male prenatal in 2019. Michelle talks with Joni about why men taking prenatals are just as important for men for a healthy pregnancy. Dr. Thomas Su is a cosmetic surgeon and the owner of ArtLipo Plastic Surgery based in Tampa, Florida. It is a highly regarded clinic providing some of the most advanced liposuction procedures in the world. He has performed awake - only liposuction for over 15 years. He joins Michelle to talk about his practice and lipedema, how it affect women and what can be done for it.Dr. Su is defined by his passion for art since high school. He went on to study human figure drawing, painting, and sculpting in college, resulting in a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts. His love for art of the human figure is made apparent in all of his work and is the reason for his high degree of perfectionism when it comes to liposuction.Compared to other cosmetic or plastic surgeons who perform a myriad of different surgeries, Dr. Su concentrates on only liposuction. He has developed advanced skills and a level of expertise that few surgeons doing liposuction can master. Dr. Su is the innovator of the Interactive Lipo Method and Celebrity Arms Sculpting. The Interactive Lipo Method is a culmination of techniques derived from Dr. Su's background as a figure artist and sculptor.Cardiovascular disease is one of the biggest public health crises of our time and remains a leading public health challenge in the US and globally.1 In fact, someone in the US has a heart attack approximately every 40 seconds. Having a high low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol number – the “bad” cholesterol – can raise your risk of heart attack and stroke. Too much LDL cholesterol can lead to a buildup of fatty deposits, or plaques, inside your arteries. These plaques can narrow arteries and reduce blood flow. If a piece of the plaque breaks free, it might travel into the bloodstream and block a blood vessel to the heart or brain, causing a heart attack or stroke. For people who have had a heart attack or stroke, knowing the connection between high cholesterol and the risk of having another cardiovascular event is vital because taking steps to aim for and maintain a low LDL cholesterol level can reduce their risk of future events. Dr. Eduardo Sanchez serves as Chief Medical Officer (CMO) for Prevention for the American Heart Association. Lorraine Martin, President and CEO, National Safety Council joins Michelle to talk about what can be done to intervene in the workplace when there's been an overdose. Overdoses have emerged as the leading cause of unintentional death in the United States, with opioids involved in a staggering 77% of these incidents. Overdoses can happen anywhere, including the workplace – and the numbers are alarming: workplace overdoses, often linked to opioid misuse, have surged by an astonishing 536% since 2011, cutting across all worker demographics, industries and occupations. At the National Safety Council (NSC), the mission is clear: to save lives from the workplace to anyplace. To fulfill this mission, the Council recently launched the Respond Ready Workplace initiative that focuses on three critical aspects: overdose and naloxone awareness, access and adoption.The Capital City Africa Week Festival and Ghana Week DC, a first-time series of events devoted to the celebration of Ghanaian art, culture, business, tourism, sports and more, is taking place October 9-14, 2023 in Washington, D.C.

Today I want to share something about insulin that you may have never heard before and clear up some confusion regarding insulin. The main reason why the keto diet and intermittent fasting work so well to support a healthy body is that they both help lower insulin. However, insulin has certain benefits. This is where the confusion starts. How can insulin be harmful and also have health benefits? Potential health benefits of insulin: • It helps lower blood sugar levels • It supports muscle growth • It protects against muscle atrophy • It supports the arteries • It helps lower LDL cholesterol • It helps lower blood pressure • It lowers the production of glucose in the liver • It supports the absorption of potassium and magnesium • It suppresses lipolysis • It is a potent anti-inflammatory • It has antioxidant properties • Insulin nasal spray is used to help people who have dementia • It helps increases testosterone • It helps lower uric acid The real problem is with the insulin receptors. When the receptors become resistant, as in insulin resistance, we lose the function of insulin. When someone has insulin resistance, they actually have an insulin deficiency. You may have excess insulin in your blood, but it's not affecting the receptors. A high level of insulin is what creates insulin resistance. The more you increase insulin, the less the receptors will work. The best ways to fix insulin resistance: 1. Get on the Healthy Keto® diet 2. Start doing intermittent fasting 3. Get regular exercise 4. Reduce your stress 5. Get plenty of sleep The best natural remedies for insulin resistance: • Apple cider vinegar (1 Tbsp in water) • Berberine • Cinnamon • Chromium • Zinc • Vitamin D • Magnesium • Potassium • Omega-3 fatty acids DATA: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/14986... https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/arti...
Today we're going to talk about the best diet for familial hypercholesterolemia. With this condition, a person has 50 percent of the LDL receptors than usual, which means they have a higher risk of a buildup of LDL. The top signs of familial hypercholesterolemia are fat deposits on the Achilles tendons, wrists, or eyelids and a condition called arcus senilis, which is whitening around the iris. Key points from an important study: • The current dietary guidelines for the management of coronary heart disease in familial hypercholesterolemia are based on outdated and unsupported information. • There's no evidence to support the recommendations of consuming a low saturated fat diet or low cholesterol diet, which are given to individuals with a genetic cholesterol problem. • A low-carb diet was found to significantly improve cardiovascular disease biomarkers. • There is sufficient rationale for conducting clinical trials to assess the effects of a low-carb diet on familial hypercholesterolemia individuals with insulin resistance. It may be good to question if lowering the cholesterol and saturated fats in your diet is the best strategy to focus on. But talk to your doctor before making any changes to your diet or medications. In my opinion, people with high cholesterol should focus more on lowering their carbs rather than saturated fat or cholesterol. Natural remedies for cholesterol problems: 1. Get on the Healthy Keto® diet 2. Do intermittent fasting 3. Take red yeast extract 4. Take policosanol 5. Take niacin 6. Exercise 7. Consume garlic 8. Consume tocotrienols DATA: https://ebm.bmj.com/content/26/6/295 https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/... https://www.mdpi.com/2227-9059/10/8/1809 https://www.ahajournals.org/doi/full/... https://www.atherosclerosis-journal.c... https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/arti... https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/20153... https://www.diabetesincontrol.com/low... https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/25468...
In this episode of ReInvent healthcare, I dive deep into LDL Particles and what those mean for cardiovascular health. I also share how essential it is to personalize care and use a holistic approach based on genetics and lifestyle, and to examine a full lipid profile to effectively manage the cardiovascular health of our clients. IN THIS EPISODE:LDL Particles Are Not All the SameIt's essential to understand that not all LDL particles are created equal. LDL stands for low-density lipoproteins and plays a crucial role in transporting cholesterol and fats throughout the body. However, high levels of LDL, especially small, dense particles, can increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases like atherosclerosis, heart disease, and strokes. As functional practitioners, it is important to understand this in order to tailor approaches for every individual.Particle Size MattersThe size and density of LDL particles matter when assessing cardiovascular risk. Smaller, denser LDL particles are more atherogenic and susceptible to oxidation, making them more harmful than larger, buoyant particles. These small particles are associated with higher triglyceride levels and often observed in individuals with insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome.Comprehensive Assessment Is KeyStandard lipid panels, which measure cholesterol, LDL, HDL, and triglycerides, are not enough to assess cardiovascular risk fully. Functional practitioners should consider advanced lipid panels that include particle size and number, assess for oxidized LDL, and examine Lp(a) lipoprotein. Lifestyle factors, such as diet, exercise, and stress management, play a significant role in influencing LDL particle characteristics and should be addressed to reduce cardiovascular risk.ReInvent Healthcare Links Get our FREE Guide to Taking a Detailed Health History that gets you to root causes.Access Additional Resources for Practitioners ready to improve clinical outcomes through our Nutritional Endocrinology Practitioner Training.

October is Menopause Awareness Month so we're kicking off the month with this repost of a deep dive GRUFFtalk host Barbara Hannah Grufferman took with Dr. Margaret Nachtigall about how menopause changes your heart. 1 in 9 perimenopausal women in the 45-64 age group will develop heart disease. That's a scary thought and one that may leave you wondering what you need to know about menopause and heart health. Most women are unprepared for the impact menopause has on their hearts. GRUFFtalk host Barbara Hannah Grufferman was one of them. She developed a non-life-threatening heart issue but vowed to never let heart disease be the cause of her premature demise. She ramped up her workouts and reassessed how she was managing stress, eating, and sleeping, al of which she shares in this episode. The guest is Dr. Margaret Nachtigall who talks through the importance of heart health and its relation to menopause. She talks with Barbara about modifying risk factors, as well as keeping an open mind about talking your healthcare provider to see if estrogen is right for you. Dr. Nachtigall is a board-certified Reproductive Endocrinologist at NYU Langone Health. She is also the Medical Director of Menopause Cheat Sheet, a free newsletter she and Barbara publish together to help women navigate life before, during and after menopausal changes. Modify Your Risk Factors Although cardiovascular disease is a serious problem, there are actions we can take that are within your control. You can choose to eat healthier and get plenty of sleep. Exercise is also important to maintain a healthy heart. Dr. Nachtigall's favorites are not smoking or drinking too much. One of the most important actions, which is often forgotten, is managing stress. “… My point is, estrogen is not right for everyone, but it is right for many individuals.” Dr. Margaret Nachtigall Estrogen Isn't the Right Choice for Everyone Dr. Nachtigall points out that while starting estrogen early can have health benefits, it isn't right for everyone. It's important to speak with your healthcare provider about what your symptoms and risk factors are to determine what's best for you. Timing is critical if you consider starting estrogen. There are significant benefits to starting hormone therapy early on in menopause. Dr. Margaret Nachtigall Takeaways: • Try your best to reverse your risk factors • Eat healthy and sleep well • Discuss what your particular risks are for hormone therapy with your healthcare provider "A lot of the symptoms that we attribute to menopause may also contribute to having an increase in heart disease." -Dr. Nachtigall Your healthcare provider will assess your risk factors and may do some testing. Risk factors may include abnormal lipid profiles. It's also important to look at your cholesterol breakdown (total cholesterol, HDL, LDL). Other risk factors include obesity, smoking, stress, depression, inactivity, family history, inflammatory conditions, or chronic illnesses. Remember, estrogen may not be for everyone, but can provide benefits for many individuals.

Hello, my friends I missed you so much! My September Birthday, taking more care of my doggies, and some vacations... Here I am, ready to give you my best ENERGY, as in MASTER YOUR HIGH VIBE! Monday is my favorite day of the week, because it's like a fresh start, but some of us don't like Mondays, because it's having to go back to work, to school, and to activities that seem less fun. Well, when you design your life the way you want to live it - like I do, and I help you do - you actually love most days... And you really don't need vacations from living the way you want to... And when it comes to exercising, working out, eating healthy and practicing the daily disciplines for your best health... It's great to have a boost of motivation at the start of the week. So honoring the famous hashtag Monday Motivation, here are 3 tips: 1) DO IT ANYWAY: Meaning, don't wait to feel motivated, seriously. It rarely kicks in when you think of going to the gym or practicing at home. And my favorite definition of discipline is when you do it, even when you don't feel like it. 2) WARM-UP: Not just to avoid injury is it important to start off with lighter intensity, but it eases the way to the harder parts of your routine. And most probably, you will feel that boost that will get you in motion. 3) MAKE IT SIMPLE: When it comes to eating more plant foods, I recommend and make videos of practical nutrition: like coconut milk, lentil sprouts, brown rice as staples. So that it becomes easier to add on to that... And since it's also Meatless Monday, it's a great opportunity to start off where you are, making one change at a time. Maybe one new recipe at a time, and one meal at a time. For instance, just start eating more fresh fruit, or more seeds and nuts. And try to include beans or lentils every day. Not only are they delicious and filling, but they really help you prevent all that is not great health... Fruits and vegetables provide us with fiber, vitamins, minerals and plant compounds, which are thought to be responsible for many health benefits. Observational studies show that higher fruit and vegetable intake is linked to a lower risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis and some brain disorders (6Trusted Source, 7Trusted Source, 8Trusted Source). Increased fruit intake is also linked to lower blood pressure, reduced oxidative stress and improved blood sugar control (9Trusted Source, 10Trusted Source). One review found that for each daily portion of fruit or vegetables consumed, the risk of heart disease decreased by 4–7% (11Trusted Source). Beans and Legumes Experts believe that the high soluble fiber content and the wide range of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in beans and legumes may help reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers (17Trusted Source, 18Trusted Source, 19Trusted Source). Eating one serving of legumes like beans, peas and chickpeas each day has been linked to 5% lower LDL cholesterol levels and a 5-6% lower risk of heart disease (20Trusted Source). Nuts and Seeds Nuts and seeds are high in antioxidants, minerals and healthy fats. They have been associated with a reduced risk of early death, heart disease and diabetes (21Trusted Source, 22Trusted Source). One review found that 4 weekly servings of nuts was linked to a 28% lower risk of heart disease, and 22% lower risk of diabetes (22Trusted Source). Whole Grains Whole grains contain many valuable nutrients, including fiber, B vitamins and minerals such as iron, magnesium and selenium.

Welcome to my podcast. I am Doctor Warrick Bishop, and I want to help you to live as well as possible for as long as possible. I'm a practising cardiologist, best-selling author, keynote speaker, and the creator of The Healthy Heart Network. I have over 20 years as a specialist cardiologist and a private practice of over 10,000 patients. The episode discusses reduced carbohydrate diets and their effects on cardiovascular health. While such diets may help with weight control and blood sugar levels, there is debate around their long-term safety, especially for those with heart disease or diabetes. Saturated fat intake is known to raise LDL cholesterol, which can increase heart risks. However, monounsaturated fats may be more favorable. The experts discuss how individual responses to diet and cholesterol-lowering medications can vary greatly. They agree these diets can be appropriate for healthy people without heart conditions, but more research is still needed on long-term outcomes. The potential benefits must be weighed against risks for each individual patient.
Today, I am blessed to have here with me Dr. Ronesh Sinha. He is the author of The South Asian Health Solution and is an internal medicine physician and expert on insulin resistance and corporate wellness. His groundbreaking work in reversing diabetes and insulin resistance in diverse populations has been featured on the front cover of Fortune magazine and the LA times. He is a top-rated speaker for companies like Google, Oracle, Cisco, and more (read testimonials). He serves as Chief Medical Officer for Silicon Valley Employer Forum where he helps shape global health benefits for more than 55 major tech companies. In this episode, Dr. Ronesh Sinha discusses why the standard cholesterol risk calculator doesn't tell you everything you need to know. Instead, you should ask for advanced lipid testing; Dr. Sinha explains the importance of having this advanced lipid profile, and he touches on the nuances of cholesterol. Then, Dr. Sinha dives into emotional metabolism and describes how stress can be worse for your glucose levels than chocolate cake. Tune in as we chat about heart rate variability, the relationship between intermittent fasting and strength training, and how to sneak more protein into your diet.

A standard risk calculator won't show the dangerous atherogenic insulin-resistant cholesterol particles. Luckily, there are modified calculators that individuals use worldwide, and some incorporate triglycerides. Risk calculators need to integrate insulin resistance. The standard guidelines and tools we use in America have a long way to go. [12:50] The Reason You Should Ask For Advanced Lipid Testing Lipoprotein is a boat that carries cholesterol. There are two different boats: Type A and Type B. Type B is the bad boat. An abundance of smaller particles causes more damage. When looking at a standard profile, you're not going to get the clarity to know how many Type A vs. Type B you have. You can only know how many Type A vs. Type B you have by getting an advanced lipid profile. [20:45] Emotional Metabolism: Stress Is Worse Than Chocolate Cake What is the emotional impact of your behaviors and thoughts on glucose control? Everyone knows that stress is not good for you. However, you can track your emotional status and measure glucose against it. Even if you have zero grams of carbs, stress can increase your glucose levels. Early signs of stress will flood the liver with glucose. It's time to do meaningful things to mitigate your stress levels. [24:45] Using Gratitude and Mindful Breathing Throughout A Stressful Day How do you use gratitude on the spot after a stressful event? Many people practice gratitude and journaling in the morning. However, your mind can go into utter chaos when you deal with things throughout the day. Moments of gratitude throughout the day will be essential. Also, be mindful of your breathing patterns during the day. Mindful breathing will vastly improve your blood pressure and blood glucose. [30:10] The Relationship Between Heart Rate Variability To Parasympathetic Effect Heart rate variability is our most readily accessible metric for parasympathetic activity. Variety is the spice of life; you also want variety in your heartbeat. When you have variation, it's a sign that your parasympathetic system is more active. Remind yourself to practice mindfulness throughout the day to improve your parasympathetic system. [38:10] When Intermittent Fasting, You Need To Practice Strength Training Fasting is therapeutic; if it is misused, it can have adverse side effects. Identify the timing of your fast that works for you. Make sure you're getting adequate protein during your eating window. Most people that are fasting are doing minimal amounts of exercise. Unfortunately, when you aren't exercising, you may be losing muscle. If you're not in a strength training program and aren't getting enough protein, you shouldn't be fasting. [42:30] Eating Protein Early In The Day To Improve Glucose and Overall Mood Just to keep it simple, you need about a gram of protein per pound of ideal body weight. Distribute protein throughout the day. Also, make sure to activate mTOR toward that first meal. With proper protein intake, your glucose levels will be much more stable. Eat more protein with your first meal and see how you feel. [48:20] Three Things To Consider Regarding Your Health: Carbs, Cooking Oils, and Circadian Rhythm The 3 C's: Carbs Cooking Oils Circadian Rhythm If you're a sedentary person, it's best to watch your carb intake. The food industry has caught on to low-carb eating. However, they are using terrible oils that are highly inflammatory. Be sure you are not consuming foods using the wrong types of oils. Lastly, meal timing and bed timing can have a powerful impact on glucose control. AND MUCH MORE!

Welcome to my podcast. I am Doctor Warrick Bishop, and I want to help you to live as well as possible for as long as possible. I'm a practising cardiologist, best-selling author, keynote speaker, and the creator of The Healthy Heart Network. I have over 20 years as a specialist cardiologist and a private practice of over 10,000 patients. This episode discusses LDL cholesterol and its link to coronary artery disease. While LDL is generally considered a risk factor, it may not predict outcomes for every individual. Different types of LDL particles can vary in their risks, with smaller, denser particles posing more issues. Triglyceride levels were also noted as important. Guest Doctor Sangster shared how investigating particle size led to insights. Lowering LDL through diet, statins, or other means seemed to provide benefits to those with demonstrated artery problems.
Welcome to Impact Theory! I've got an exciting two-part episode for today with the intriguing, at-times controversial, Gad Saad. Known for his controversial views and unique approach to life, Gad believes that happiness is not an end goal but a byproduct of specific behaviors. He shares his insights and views of why the path to happiness is sometimes controversial when truth and authenticity are your highest values. Though this has led to death threats, Gad Saad, a renowned author, YouTuber, and award-winning professor who asserts that happiness is not a destination, but a byproduct of specific behaviors. “The only road to individual dignity and sustained existential happiness is to adopt an ethos of personal agency. You are the ultimate architect of your own happiness, so get to work.” -Gad Saad We open the door for deeper conversation as Gad explores our need for intellectual variety, operating from a non-fractured personality, and being truly antifragile in the sense of being able to handle opposing views and beliefs. Stay tuned for the second part of this compelling discussion as we start digging how an absurd amount of failure and rejections translate into happiness. Saad Truths: “It's very very difficult for me to not be authentic if I need to defend some truth claim, [...] so the death threats come from the fact that I have to decide, am I going to be a fanatic and walk away from a defense of truth, or am I going to be authentic not only to myself, but to truth by stepping on some toes? And regrettably, at times I step on the wrong toes, which yields some death threats.” “Don't worry about taking a statin to lower your LDL scores. Make sure that you have two, three, four friends that you really trust and love and you can engage in reciprocal rituals with.” “I don't think you can solve some of the most important novel problems if they're not at the cusp of interdisciplinary.” “Having a conciliate mindset, being a generalist, in my view, are probably the best ways to crack novel problems.” Follow Gad Saad: Website: https://www.gadsaad.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/GadSaad YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/@GadSaad Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/doctorgadsaad/ SPONSORS: Visit https://bit.ly/WildHealthImpact to apply for membership for a better alternative to traditional healthcare.

Today, I want to share the best remedy to unclog your arteries. A clogged artery is an artery that's filled with plaque. In many cases, when a person has clogged arteries, they also have stiff arteries, inflammation, and high blood pressure. Many people seek natural alternatives for clogged arteries because the common treatments often have side effects. Potential side effects of these treatments can include: • Myopathy • Erectile dysfunction • Low testosterone • Neuropathy • Dementia • Hemorrhagic stroke • Increased risk of cancer The best natural remedy to unclog your arteries is called nattokinase. Nattokinase is an enzyme in natto (fermented soybeans). Fermented soybeans are also loaded with vitamin K2. Potential benefits of nattokinase: 1. It may help break up clots 2. It may help clear up nasal polyps 3. It may help decrease oxidized LDL 4. It has anti-inflammatory properties 5. It may help lower blood pressure 6. It inhibits the thickening of the artery walls 7. It may help increase HDL and lower triglycerides 8. It may help decrease the risk of strokes 9. It was shown to shrink plaquing in the aorta when combined with ginseng in animal studies DATA: https://www.nature.com/articles/srep11601 https://journals.sagepub.com https://europepmc.org/article/med/28763875 https://www.docmuscles.com/statin-drug-risk-vs-benefit/ https://www.docmuscles.com
Let's talk about the best way to extend your life. The #1 cause of death worldwide is heart disease. If we look at risk factors for heart disease, high LDL increases your risk by 38 percent. But insulin resistance increases your risk by 540 percent. Other risk factors for cardiovascular disease, like diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and hypertension, can be caused by insulin resistance. This seems to mean that insulin resistance is the biggest risk factor for premature cardiac death. The most popular mainstream treatment for high cholesterol is statin drugs. Studies have shown that statins can potentially lead to insulin resistance and diabetes. Healthy mitochondria are essential to longevity. Statins may also impair the mitochondria and increase apoptosis (death of the mitochondria). An interesting study links higher LDL cholesterol to inversely affecting mortality. This means that having higher LDL may help extend your lifespan. Cholesterol is involved in a myriad of functions in the body—it's essential for a healthy life. Blood thinners and even the heart-healthy diet recommended by the American Heart Association can also contribute to insulin resistance and high blood sugar. To live longer, improving insulin resistance, making insulin more sensitive, and stabilizing your blood sugar is crucial. The most important things you can do to support healthy insulin and blood sugar include: 1. Getting on a low-carb diet (the ketogenic diet) 2. Doing intermittent fasting 3. Not restricting cholesterol 4. Consuming vegetables 5. Exercising DATA: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31696945/ https://academic.oup.com https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/28132458/ https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33511728/

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, BiOptimizers, LMNT, and Cozy Earth.Heart disease is still the number one killer in the world, yet most people don't actually understand what markers put them most at risk. The general consensus is there are two types of cholesterol—the good and the bad—the good is thought to be high-density lipoproteins or HDL, and the bad is low-density lipoproteins or LDL. But we now know from research that it's much more complicated than that—there are actually various sizes and densities of these lipoproteins. Today on The Doctor's Farmacy, I'm excited to talk to one of the leading lipidologists, Dr. Ronald Krauss, all about lipoproteins, what they do in the body, what they mean for heart disease risk, and why a typical lipid panel alone is insufficient.Dr. Krauss is a Senior Scientist at Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute, a Professor of Medicine at UCSF, and an Adjunct Professor of Nutritional Sciences at UC Berkeley. Dr. Krauss's research aims to understand how to best prevent cardiovascular disease through early detection and management of its major risk factors: most notably, elevated levels of blood cholesterol and lipoproteins. He has published over 450 research articles and reviews on metabolic, genetic, dietary, and drug effects on plasma lipoproteins and the risk of coronary artery disease, with over 100,000 citations of this work.This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, BiOptimizers, LMNT, and Cozy Earth.Access more than 3,000 specialty lab tests with Rupa Health.
