1:23called the end of heart disease doctor
1:25firms are welcome to the show
1:27well thanks then great to be here and
1:30like my book the end of Part disease
1:32already came out someone’s ago by the
1:33way I wanted awesome awesome awesome
1:36well let me ask you let’s just jump
1:38right into it from so let me why don’t
1:40you focus so much on nutrition when
1:43other doctors have started gone down
1:44words i guess more towards drugs and
1:46things like that what what got you
1:47started on this
1:48well I’ve been in medical practice more
1:52than 25 years but I went to medical
1:54school with a specific intent to use
1:58nutritional interventions as my primary
2:01primary modality of care because i was
2:04excited about nutrition even when I was
2:06a teenager I watched my father get well
2:08I saw the people being able to be cured
2:11from serious ailments like asthma and
2:14diabetes and spends and severe heart
2:17disease and autoimmune conditions like
2:19rheumatoid arthritis and also to colitis
2:22and psoriasis watch the melt away and so
2:26I pursued a career in medicine with the
2:29specific objective to being an expert in
2:32nutritional therapy to enable people to
2:35get totally well because we use
2:37medications to control your blood
2:39pressure diabetes or psoriasis you’re on
2:41medications the rest of your life to
2:44control the symptoms you’re not better
2:46you still have high blood pressure and
2:47psoriasis that you’re covering up with
2:50medication when you fix your nutrition
2:53you’ve removed the psoriasis you remove
2:56the blood pressure you don’t need care
2:58of the rest of your life at the same
2:59time you know you’ve extended you proper
3:02nutrition extends your lifespan by 20 or
3:04more years
3:05the point I’m making is that I guess I
3:09see from nutritional interventions as
3:13we’re medicine should have gone i
3:15consider it on progressive medicine
3:18correct medicine and i consider the way
3:21medicine is traditionally practice where
3:23drugs are the primary modality care to
3:25be a distorted and this and you know and
3:29not the way we should be god it’s
3:31affected by economics and and
3:33socialization and no and political you
3:38know so in other words the history of
3:40Medicine has been affected by things
3:42that did not result in what’s best for
3:44our population and because of that we
3:46have the most cancer-ridden obese
3:49diabetic chrome population the world we
3:52see people dropping dead every minute of
3:54heart attacks don’t have to happen we
3:56see people with dementia and stroke
3:58something in nursing homes we see an 11
4:01no such a tragic amount of people that
4:06are sickly and suffering all because of
4:09the standard medical cares is killing
4:11people drugs to control what is
4:12basically for nutrition that’s created
4:17these problems so people will omit
4:18misinform to think that it’s
4:20predominately genetics and the
4:21consequence of aging and happens to you
4:23anyway and doctors are saving our lives
4:25making us live longer and you go to your
4:27doctor and take the drugs that you care
4:28for things and it’s not true
4:30the drugs for blood pressure for example
4:32cause cancer the drugs for you know
4:34what’s up for autoimmune disease causes
4:36cancer you know when you are causing a
4:38tremendous amount of suffering that this
4:40doesn’t have to apartment all just
4:44explained that the drugs from blood
4:45pressure they may actually cause cancer
4:47well there’s a study and I wrote in my
4:50book the end of heart disease i give the
4:52data from the medical studies to show
4:53for example that women who were on
4:56calcium channel blockers for 10 years or
4:59more have double the risk of breast
5:00cancer wow I’m so we’re talking about
5:02that people put on statin drugs statin
5:05drugs increased to almost double the
5:07risk after 10 years of use use of
5:08invasive breast cancer what about people
5:10putting on council chat about it and
5:12staten drugs
5:14the point is is that people aren’t given
5:16proper informed consent
5:18they’re not told that the blood pressure
5:19medications could lower your diastolic
5:22blood pressure to low increase the risk
5:24of atrial fibrillation irregular
5:25heartbeats of sudden cardiac death
5:27they’re not told that you know it’s like
5:29taking your car to the mechanic with the
5:31oil light flashing on the dashboard and
5:33he reaches in there with a wire clippers
5:35and cuts the wire so you don’t see it’s
5:37flashing medication
5:39no they are not taking away the problem
5:42they’re covering it up so the person
5:43doesn’t know how sick they still are and
5:45the inevitable consequences the
5:47underlying pathology keeps advancing its
5:50even angioplasty and bypass surgery does
5:52not when used more on you know in most
5:55cases it’s used for people who have
5:58chest pain who were stable not people
6:00who are undergoing a heart attack or
6:02acute cardiac syndrome at the moment the
6:04point I’m making is that most of those
6:06people we doing elected those elective
6:08procedures are not having their life
6:11spent Hispanics extended they’re having
6:14ice and shortened and now they have to
6:16be on blood-thinning drugs the rest of
6:19their life and now they have a foreign
6:20body in their heart
6:21the point is is there now forever to
6:24increased risk of hemorrhagic stroke in
6:26other words there’s a risk-benefit ratio
6:29for every medical procedure and you
6:31might have to incur that risk but was
6:33this person told they could have totally
6:35got well with a given the choice to be
6:38told they don’t have to have heart
6:39disease anymore they can lower the blood
6:41pressure back to normal and not need
6:42medication they don’t have to ever have
6:44a heart attack or stroke and you know
6:46and I’ve got given that’s why I felt
6:48this book the end of heart disease with
6:50such a um a process for me personally to
6:53be able to get this information out to
6:55the masses so it’s so people have truly
6:58informed consent in a comprehensive
7:01fashion they know the risks of what
7:03their of the drugs they’re taking they
7:06know how effective proper nutrition
7:08could be should they chose choose that
7:10Ruth and the other utility and even
7:12dangers of medical care just completely
7:14covered up by physicians you know that
7:17for me i got when i started practice 30
7:19years ago I totally bought into the
7:21system and over the years exactly what
7:24you’re saying
7:25I’ve noticed in my own patients as so
7:28it’s a little embarrassing to say that
7:30I’ve 30 years to reach conclusions that
7:34reads down the gate
7:36why why do you think the medical
7:40community has not raced this constant
7:43why are they not seen this why are they
7:45not going more towards nutrition what
7:47was a underlying reason here
7:49well you know I don’t have all the
7:51answers on that question but I could say
7:53this that number one keep in mind that
7:55the growth of the American College of
7:57lobster medicine and the growth of
7:59positions utilizing nutrition as a
8:01primary modality has exploded in the
8:03last 10 years and the last 10 years the
8:05membership and the board certification
8:08of you know doctors being certified
8:09nutritional therapeutics has been
8:11doubling every year so it’s almost
8:12exponential advancement of it
8:15number two I know every day I have more
8:17physicians cardiologist and you know
8:20intensive cardiologist putting you know
8:22stance and things tell me they’re not
8:24doing it anymore they cut it back
8:25without using my books in their practice
8:27you know I can’t tell you how personally
8:31reward i am by the thousands of doctors
8:33across the country utilize my books and
8:36my in their medical practices to inform
8:38patients and motivate patients to make
8:39these changes so doctors are just like
8:42you know other professionals whether
8:44it’s politicians or lawyers or you know
8:46electricians some of them are in the
8:48dark and aren’t kept up on recent
8:50advances here and others are kept up
8:52summary excited about this information
8:54they want to really help people and
8:55other people are too busy to even look
8:57at it and just want to be you know do
8:58whatever most convenient to the practice
9:00of being the most patients and nail to
9:01keep their their you know their standard
9:04of living high the point I’m making is
9:06that um you know it’s hard to sometimes
9:09integrate nutritional medicine to a
9:12conventional medical practice because it
9:13you know you can’t spend that much time
9:14talking to people and you have to like
9:16gives me see people in groups and give
9:18lectures but there are doctors winning
9:20how to do this more and more and you
9:22know there are more you know I’m therapy
9:24therapies available nutritional
9:26therapies of the help of people if you
9:27look around there’s more this
9:29information out today than ever
9:31so I think it’s a complicated you know
9:33we can go back historically and say why
9:35America why the medical profession
9:37evolved to be so drugged centered and to
9:40ignore lifestyle medicine lifestyle
9:42interventions that are so effective and
9:44but I said I’m just saying we could go
9:47back and look at that owners right you
9:49know that historical but but I don’t you
9:52know I don’t know if we should have time
9:53for that now works that’s critically
9:56important but I know where we are and it
9:57says a lot of there’s a lot of people in
9:59America who are looking for this type of
10:01care and there’s more people want this
10:03type of care doctors will offer it of
10:05course it’s like if you know if we stops
10:07buying fast food restaurants they’ll go
10:09into business with people buying and
10:10they keep opening up if you stop going
10:12to doctors and taking drugs and we
10:15no it’s a complicated issue but I think
10:17the biggest problem is there’s not
10:18enough demand from the population
10:19because our population is uneducated
10:21about when I think you’re going to
10:24always changing that and then you should
10:25be very proud of yourself what I mean
10:28what are some of the most prevalent
10:29chronic diseases caused by poor
10:32nutrition we touched on heart disease
10:34what other things that you say are
10:35really the mainly caused by performing
10:38Christian well you know I guess it’s
10:40generally accepted that diabetes and
10:42obesity and heart disease and high blood
10:44pressure high cholesterol and strokes
10:46and dementia are caused directly but we
10:48put in our mouths and we don’t have to
10:50be demented we get older we can live
10:51much longer but I think what’s not
10:53generally recognized about that’s
10:55nutrition is depression and violence and
10:57aggressive behavior and poor performance
10:59in school and how intelligence is
11:01affected by how you eat when you are not
11:03just before you print but how your
11:04parents see when they’re you know and
11:06especially your mother weeks before she
11:07even conceived the baby and mother diet
11:10the child since young the parents don’t
11:13see that they have the opportunity to
11:15affect the intelligence of their child
11:17their immune system of their child they
11:19don’t they don’t see that on and people
11:22don’t see these autoimmune diseases like
11:24multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid
11:27arthritis psoriasis and then they don’t
11:31see these diseases are nutritionally
11:32based they just go to doctors and take
11:34drugs and oblivious to the fact that
11:36what they eat caused it and if they
11:38change their diet they could most likely
11:40get well again if you’re right i was
11:43just a story the other day I saw a young
11:44lady pregnant drinking and diet soda
11:47I just you know you want to go over to
11:50him and say please don’t do that ever
11:52had that experience where you just walk
11:53up to somebody and say you gotta stop
11:56doing that like something i don’t know i
11:58mean i right i feel i would feel like
11:59putting handcuffs on her and hope we’ll
12:01put it in active you know actually
12:05working on a new book now that’s not
12:06published next September’s called faster
12:08genocide but people don’t understand
12:10that are we as humans are some of the
12:12foods we put in our bodies are not
12:13compatible with human genes are genes
12:15are made to function on these
12:16frankenfoods these design at these foods
12:18that have been invented in recent
12:20history and we’re about genetically
12:22modified foods no i’m talking about fast
12:25food and processed foods and i consider
12:26fast-forwards latches commercial food in
12:28a fast-food restaurant but things in
12:29bags and boxes that you know that is
12:32largely have no micro nutrient intake
12:33and just processed foods with additives
12:35and preservatives and artificial
12:36ingredients so I think that we’re
12:38talking here about the fact that fifty
12:41five percent of the american diet is
12:44processed foods you know when these
12:47foods get don’t just contain toxic
12:49elements but they also are digested
12:52very rapidly and their calories which
12:54are absorbed into the bloodstream very
12:56rapidly which sense some sparks the
13:00production of hormones that are fat
13:02storing hormones or growth hormones
13:05because it’s so many calories rushing in
13:07and those at fat storage hormone growth
13:10hormones promote cancer so we’re eating
13:13a diet that doesn’t just cause diabetes
13:15and heart disease eating a diet causes
13:17cancer and dementia and makes our life
13:21in the last 10 or 15 years were alive
13:24pretty much to be an ngon satisfying
13:26uncomfortable existence because people’s
13:30health deteriorate so much in later use
13:33well what do you think also as far as I
13:35can only speak of like nutrient
13:37nutrient-dense foods as being important
13:40towards longevity but do you see that
13:42the lifestyle that people lead right now
13:44where is that fast-food kind of
13:45lifestyle is difficult to change them is
13:48it are you talking about people that
13:49they should prepare for their own foods
13:51or how do you change the whole lifestyle
13:53how to get people to do that
15:18it’s not the truth
15:45thanks for letting us so let’s say we
15:50took an individual with the same
15:51genetics and you raise them on the
15:53fast-food diet that we have today and we
15:56took a twin of that person and we raised
15:59them like you speak of like with great
16:01nutrition right what are we talking
16:03about in terms of longevity like how
16:05much longer would they look to live like
16:07what are we talking about what would
16:09that look like what the difference be
16:10well they keep in mind that everything
16:12is a bell-shaped curve meaning the
16:14bell-shaped curves of smokers smokers
16:16live about 10 years less than the
16:18average American so their average age
16:20might be 65 to 75 with the average
16:23functional age of that America’s 75 to
16:2580 the average functional age of 87
16:27nutria Therrien doctor from New Therrien
16:30might be 95 to a hundred you know you
16:32might get 20 more years of life but the
16:34point I’m making right now is that go
16:36back 10 years before this personal alarm
16:39is dead
16:40look at these smokers look at these
16:41people eating fast food look at how much
16:43their joints a look at how much how an
16:45active they are looking much dumb
16:46intellectual memory they’ve lost look at
16:49much time paying their in look at you
16:51know look at their not having a great
16:54life and so we’re not just talking about
16:56extending life span
16:57we’re talking about having a much
16:58healthier life expectancy with the years
17:00you are alive you fully able to enjoy
17:02your life you’re not medically dependent
17:05being tortured by you by doctors with
17:07surgeries and procedures putting tubes
17:09of the orifices of your body and you’re
17:10not you know you’re not one convenient
17:12by being on medications with their side
17:14effects so the point is is that it’s not
17:17just living longer its living with less
17:19fear its living with more
17:21self-confidence it’s living with your
17:23full mental faculties your physical and
17:25youthfulness lasting longer in life and
17:28really being able to enjoy your
17:30grandchildren enjoy the golden years of
17:32your life for most Americans aren’t
17:34holding gold in there likes of fall
17:36apart their suffering are confirming you
17:39years ago I met a convolutional work out
17:41coach and he said and the way I look at
17:43life is I could spend my time working
17:44out now the same amount of time or i
17:46could spend it in the doctor’s office
17:48when I’m older
17:49and i choose to spend working out right
17:51now and I thought that was a pretty
17:53prolific state and to some degree to
17:55sort of what we’re saying yeah I also so
17:57you can’t outwork your mouth you can’t
18:00you could never come out exercise your
18:05mouth you know that means assuming that
18:08if you’re eating garbage is not gonna
18:10matter how much you were if it doesn’t
18:11matter at all because you feel you but
18:13you have metabolic rates enough exercise
18:14you become more efficient you taken in
18:17one extra bagel cooking and blunts the
18:19whole thing is gone and the people
18:20appetite goes up the point of making i’m
18:22a big proponent of exercise to longevity
18:25but right now we have about eighty five
18:28percent of americans are dramatically
18:30overweight and even though exercise
18:32extends lifespan protects the brain
18:35we’ve got to change the way that’s the
18:36primary on factor which people don’t
18:40want to face they want the gorilla to go
18:41to the gym but they’re not facing up to
18:44the fact they got to change with a much
18:45more radically if they want to have to
18:47do that for you also speak about like
18:49your body sometimes desires ovary
18:52why is that why did people’s bodies
18:54desire many times table read the
18:57Americans have to overeat they can’t
18:59they can’t not overeat because their
19:01diet is so micro nutrient deficient
19:03because they’re not eating enough for
19:04the rich micronutrient aning foods and
19:07everything so many toxic foods that’s a
19:09body has built up free radicals and
19:11glycation end products and other little
19:13other toxins and then when they stop
19:16digesting food when it appeared time
19:19that must be living off of the calories
19:21they just ate a couple hours ago
19:23the minute they start digesting they
19:24start to feel sickly and shaky and weak
19:26and headache and stomach cramping they
19:29start to feel in tolerably uncomfortable
19:32and eating makes them feel better and
19:34they think that’s hunger when they think
19:36it’s hypoglycemia wouldn’t call it they
19:39don’t recognize those symptoms are from
19:41a bun healthy diet and so they’re in
19:43order to make themselves feel well they
19:45have to keep their digestive tract busy
19:47all the time and they can ever be of a
19:50normal weight because they have to
19:52overeat just to feel ok not gonna feel
19:54okay and that’s that’s why diets don’t
19:56work because people try to cut back on
19:58calories and they can’t comfortably cut
20:00back on calories because they don’t feel
20:02well enough
20:03not eat eating stops detoxification
20:05healing most healing repair
20:07detoxification occurs in the catabolic
20:11phase of the digestive cycle that’s the
20:13phase when we already have finished
20:15digesting food and the body is just
20:18living off of what we had just stored
20:20and when the body is not putting stuff
20:21in that’s what I can fix things repair
20:24the DNA remove waste products and that’s
20:27what people don’t like to feel up when
20:28the body is so toxic these waste
20:30products gets circulated they just don’t
20:32feel well and they stopped the detox so
20:34I’m saying feeling well is getting
20:36sicker letting you feeling worse is
20:38getting well but if you really healthy
20:40enough that’s the one I asked Lauren to
20:42look to do you don’t feel ill and when
20:46you’re not eating the food and you could
20:47wait to real hunger kicks in which is
20:49then a precise computer directing the
20:51right amount of food to eat
20:52so in a natural environment eating
20:54natural healthy natural foods humans
20:56don’t become obese and overweight and
20:58and gorillas and chimpanzees baboons
21:00don’t become overweight we don’t see
21:02obese deer and squirrels running around
21:04the woods looks like you’re going York
21:06City you can see will be squirrels
21:08eating french fries and eating junk no
21:10debrie beating really fast food
21:12restaurants but a natural habitat you
21:14would never see that and so it’s we put
21:17our human body we put ourselves in an
21:19unnatural habitat of unhealthy foods
21:23that were paying the price for it
21:24differently and right now I know
21:26everythings saying that that vegetables
21:29and some of the things that are grown
21:30don’t actually have the nutrients they
21:32had 30 years ago is that true as well as
21:34some of the vegetables that we are
21:36eating are also not grown in
21:38mineral-rich soil to agree it was how
21:41much of that place important nutrition
21:43it doesn’t play a major role because
21:46it’s mostly the Midwestern Plains where
21:48the soil was depleted and it’s mostly
21:50reflecting corn and wheat and soy and
21:53more of those of inexpensive feed crops
21:56that we make processed foods out of
21:58their most nutritionally defeat
22:00important also the GMO like having some
22:03pesticides and things in the soil may
22:05not be good is good but we’re looking at
22:07fruits and vegetables most of that is
22:09growing the coastal areas California
22:11Florida Texas you know or God and those
22:13soils are about can’t
22:15originally volcanic soils the trees go
22:17very deep into the soil on nut trees and
22:20fruit trees most of the vegetables are
22:22no need to have good soil through have
22:25adequate production and we analyze most
22:28of those colorful foods they’re still
22:30nutrient-rich maybe not quite as perfect
22:32as they were many many years ago but
22:35there are a lots of very very you know
22:38intelligent and an advanced farming
22:40techniques and organic farmers in and i
22:42should say that I’m most of the
22:45vegetables lose their nutrients from
22:47being sitting in store for two weeks and
22:49then people overcook him into the cook
22:52the good out of them because they cook
22:53them for so long it’s not the vegetables
22:55weren’t good mostly vegetables were good
22:57you just have to know the right way come
22:58to storm and frozen vegetables by the
23:00way are very healthy and still have a
23:02lot of nutrients because they freeze
23:03them the same day depicting most cases
23:05the only Blanche and 41 minutes of
23:07cooking but i think that the idea that
23:10the food is no longer contain nutrients
23:13is over-exaggerated and the main reason
23:15americans are nutrient deficient because
23:17they’re not eating the green vegetables
23:19the berries the nuts the mushrooms the
23:22onions scallions they’re not eating the
23:24seeds and nuts the sesame seeds in there
23:26they’re not eating enough of the natural
23:27foods and the colorful plant foods they
23:29should be so I its then they’re just you
23:31know what they’re reading reading
23:32processed foods and only 5% colorful
23:34plant food so to blame it on the if the
23:36fruits and vegetables not have enough
23:37nutrients is just it’s a little bit
23:39distorted laughter what’s what we ate
23:42if you’re insane ideal diet or something
23:44to give us up or look like just for the
23:46average person
23:47well you know that’s the American diet
23:51is fifty-five percent of calories from
23:53animal print from processed foods like
23:55pasta bread salad oil mayonnaise
23:56doughnuts cookies crackers
23:58no breakfast bars and chips and soda and
24:00in Americans over 30-percent about
24:02thirty-three percent of calories manual
24:04products and animal products do not
24:05contain antioxidants and phytochemicals
24:07anti-cancer in greens and they promote
24:10hormones that promote cancer and then so
24:12many Americans like five percent
24:13potatoes and kind of like no
24:16semi-processed grains aren’t that great
24:18maybe about five percent of colorful
24:20plant foods
24:21what I’m saying is our diet has to be
24:23any to ninety percent of really healthy
24:26stuff closer ninety percent of highness
24:29open of colorful plant foods made of you
24:31know greens and beans and onions and
24:33mushrooms and squashes and peas and
24:35carrots and beets and you know we have
24:37to eat make we make a man out by the way
24:39to make a beautiful chocolate cake at a
24:41beach zucchini and carrots and pineapple
24:43bananas and cocoa powder and dates and
24:45little bit of whole grain flours and
24:46making a delicious just to put change
24:48the 70-minute I show people how to make
24:50incredibly delicious through that
24:51natural kinda green fields but what I’m
24:53saying is I want people to salad big
24:55salad every day and it has a main dish
24:57in one meal put enough and sea-based
24:59resting on top i want people make a big
25:01bowl of vegetable beef soup on the
25:03weekend with maybe carrots celery tomato
25:05to strengthen base
25:07I want them to you know eat servants of
25:09green vegetables and want them to eat at
25:11least three fresh fruits today I want
25:13them to reduce their animal product
25:15consumption considerably to it less than
25:18ten percent of total calories so their
25:21diet is around you know zero to ten
25:24percent usually hovering around five
25:26percent of calories from animal products
25:28not thirty percent the studies that we
25:31give credence to show that is animal
25:32products goal of fifteen percent we see
25:35dramatic increase rates of death from
25:37diabetes and heart disease and cancer
25:39and their bodies were given Christie’s
25:41studies is because they go on too many
25:43many years 15 to 30 years studies and
25:46they consume thousands and thousands of
25:47people and we’re sewing that we get over
25:50time these diets rich in animal products
25:53are exceedingly dangerous and that
25:55process food sold saying here that we’re
25:57talking about a diet that’s with a huge
25:59volume of unrefined plant foods cooked
26:02conservatively where animal products
26:04used as a condiment and smaller amounts
26:07as opposed to the main source of the
26:09main source of calories so like for
26:11breakfast is very important that we
26:12choose seeds and sesame seeds and flax
26:15seeds and hemp seeds are very powerful
26:17effects against cancer so this morning I
26:19had some steel cut oats not that much
26:21just a little bit but I put a tablespoon
26:23of him the table when she and table to
26:25the flat side of time I put like the
26:26island hemp milk on top I put in some
26:28you know some blueberries in it the
26:30whole bowl was filled up
26:32I don’t have to use that much overlooked
26:34a whole bowl you don’t even know the
26:35point is I’m getting a lot of seeds of
26:37getting some cold rains of getting um
26:40but it could lunch i might have you know
26:42a big giants at my salad bowl eventually
26:45superbeing burger if I’m gonna happen to
26:47know of their vegetable dish maybe it
26:49for dinner like a tie walk vegetable
26:52dish with a you know a peanut lemon
26:53grass some sauce or something I made for
26:56you if I want to use animal products
26:58maybe a light amount of you know some
27:00scallops or shrimp or turkey or
27:01something creditor cutting tool
27:02additionally give it flavor for my
27:04signal with a big piece of animal part
27:06on the deal so I nutria Therrien diet
27:08specifically describes a diet that’s
27:11been scientifically designed to extend
27:12human life span and prevent cancer and I
27:15have a study going on 2nite Northern
27:17Arizona University called a nutria
27:18Therrien women’s health study when we
27:21sign up thousands of women who were
27:23following a nutria Therrien diet in with
27:26the purpose of not getting with the
27:28expectation it’s going to dramatically
27:30lower the risk of getting breast cancer
27:32and we follow these people over the
27:34years and I’m publishing studies and
27:36have published studies on this work i’m
27:37the president of the nutritional
27:39research foundation and one study i
27:41published last year was shown over 450
27:44people drop their systolic blood
27:46pressure within 26 points even when I
27:48medications were taken away their blood
27:50pressure down within 26 points compared
27:52to where was on medication
27:54we’re saying that this is extremely
27:55effective enables people to get off
27:57their medications to reverse even
27:59advanced heart disease and really offer
28:02them not just prevention with protection
28:05and reversal of the disease they now
28:07have you don’t need medication
28:09wow that’s that’s unbelievable that for
28:12me where / what time here like when you
28:14let’s say you have a beginning of some
28:16of these diseases heart disease and you
28:18were to go on these diets how long would
28:20you before you and expecting to be some
28:22reversal well in the first week we see
28:27people requiring about half as much more
28:29blood pressure medication and about half
28:31as much as a diabetic medication within
28:33one week so I’m I’d say almost
28:35immediately you persons lowering the
28:37risk of death you know just think of it
28:38this way people can go out and buy
28:40button and go through a holiday parties
28:42and most heart attacks occur around the
28:44holidays so biggest I’m here for
28:46emergency rooms one meal could be the
28:48last straw that broke the camel’s back
28:50of meeting heavy rich foods can cause
28:52your heart attack so it’s a minute just
28:55a person listening to this show decides
28:58to eat healthier over the next couple of
28:59days it could save their life just
29:01because they could have been headed in a
29:02bad direction otherwise so you know
29:05it’sit’s know what I’m saying is
29:06immediately you have benefits even even
29:08not eating that one bad meal you’re
29:10going to eat could have been like it
29:12could be put you in a bad situation so
29:14but in any case what I’m saying is that
29:17within three to six months
29:19you see people no longer being the
29:21diabetics the type 2 diabetics are not
29:23diabetic anymore and i published a study
29:25on that shown within six months
29:27ninety percent of those diets those
29:29diabetics in the study were not diabetic
29:31anymore mean that in the medication but
29:32sugars were normal and so we’re talking
29:34about not a huge amount of time within
29:37you know two to three months the chest
29:39pains have got away with people with
29:40advanced heart disease then I totally
29:42well you don’t just because you’re free
29:44chest pain doesn’t you don’t still have
29:45plaque they’re not gonna take a few
29:47years to totally resolved but it but
29:49symptomatically and measuring their
29:51blood pressure and their blood tests
29:53immediately they start together with a
29:55few days they start to see profound
29:57benefits back for me are all shows about
30:00looking for the holy grail of Health and
30:02I think you really have to find it and
30:04it really is going towards that the
30:06better diet and nutrition one works as
30:09far as supplements how do you feel about
30:10supplements is that unnecessary if
30:13you’re eating the right diameter which
30:14you’re feeling stores that well that’s a
30:17complicated question and question answer
30:19because some supplements are probably
30:22beneficial to extend lifespan and some
30:24supplements people are taking a
30:25shortening of their lifespan increasing
30:27with cancer and the ones that might be
30:29beneficial to our life especially on a
30:31diet low in animal products are things
30:33like vitamin b12 and vitamin D and a
30:36little iodine and zinc and k2 was very
30:38beneficial and DHA and epa for the
30:41brains is especially if not eating that
30:43much fish is and too much fish will give
30:45you too much mercury exposure solar
30:46toxin so i don’t recommend people get
30:48other DHA from fish anyway anymore so
30:51the point I’m making is that mami SI do
30:53recommend the conservative views of
30:55supplements but on the other hand we
30:57have to mention that folic acid vitamin
30:59a and and you know and and probably by
31:02many fragments are dangerous and can
31:04call increase with cancer
31:05especially for work acid which is found
31:08in processed foods and nutritional yeast
31:09and in every multi people are taking
31:11they’re putting their taking high doses
31:13of a synthetic petroleum-derived
31:17chemical not the same thing as the real
31:19fully getting food when you get tons of
31:22folate when you eat a healthy diet by
31:24the way and you don’t need the folic
31:26acid supplements I’m saying that most
31:28you know conventional supplements people
31:30are using are dangerous they cause more
31:33harm than good probably and I I want
31:36people to get more information about my
31:38what I’m talking about supplements on my
31:41ipod format calm and and really missing
31:44information is very important because
31:45it’s it’s obviously marrying together no
31:48good diet getting enough rest and sleep
31:50or writing a little exercise on a
31:53regular basis and of course not hurting
31:56yourself with medications loosely or
31:58with taking them the wrong types of
32:00supplements that could be dangerous at
32:02furman i I’ve got to tell you changed my
32:04whole viewpoint regarding uh what I’ve
32:07been eating and stuff and I’m sure a lot
32:08of the listeners are gonna really start
32:10to look at life a little bit different
32:12think you want a lot of people i would
32:14find out more about you more about your
32:17I’m thank you well of course dr. Fuhrman
32:19dot commons dr fu HRM and they
32:23can get information about what I do with
32:24books videos
32:26no products or even need the people who
32:28need like who are food addicts with
32:29advanced disease who needed or
32:31residential care with nutritional cam
32:33and I have that available to so
32:35certainly I want people to learn more
32:37about this and realize that they have a
32:38choice they have an option they don’t
32:40have to be sick they can take charge of
32:42their health and they should get well
32:43and that’s what I do i do I try to
32:45motivate and give people that option to
32:47really work on their health as opposed
32:48to just you know sitting by having
32:51things perform then you were taking
32:52drugs instead
