5 Secrets That the SUGAR Industry Does Not Want You to Know About
Today, I’m going to share five secrets that the sugar industry doesn’t want you to know.
1. They hid the truth about the dangers of sugar
They quietly paid researchers to cover up a study that connected eating sugar to increasing the risk of heart attacks, other cardiovascular events, and cancer.
2. They made sugar an essential ingredient in food
An average person in the US consumes 26 teaspoons of sugar every day.
3. Sugar is subsidized in the United States
Tax dollars are paid to farmers to produce sugar.
4. The bliss point
This is the optimized amount of sugar to create a delicious effect, which causes a spike in endorphins. This practice trains the mind that to feel pleasure, you need to keep eating sugar.
5. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics establishes food policies
This is a group of dietitians who are the most influential over food policy. Unfortunately, they have a close relationship with the ultra-processed food industry.
Sugar is composed of fructose and glucose. Glucose is metabolized by all of your cells. But, fructose is only metabolized by the liver.
When you consume high amounts of table sugar or high-fructose corn syrup, you’re creating a toxic effect on the liver, similar to alcohol toxicity.
When you cut sugar out of the diet, your body replaces it with ketones. Ketones are a super fuel for the body. Cutting out sugar and going on a low-carb diet is not only better for your health, but it will also help shift the market to a healthier one.
Dr. Berg Gets Censored (Silenced)
YouTube has just banned anything related to health that doesn’t align with the general medical consensus.
If any information related to health doesn’t agree with the World Health Organization, the video won’t necessarily be taken down, but it may be hard to find.
This is supposed to protect viewers against misinformation and promote high-quality health information. But, their definition of misinformation is anything that opposes their viewpoint.
I currently have collected 7,607 success stories—I’m helping people. My information is not misinformation. It’s helpful information.
Traditional medicine doesn’t work for everyone, and people are looking for inexpensive natural remedies. How are they supposed to find alternative viewpoints or opinions?
A lot of people are searching for the keto diet. However, many medical professionals don't really understand nutritional ketosis.
Many times, doctors don’t get training in nutrition or alternatives. Yet these are the people who get to control this information.
Healthy ketosis is not toxic or dangerous. Ketones are a super fuel and are antioxidants. On the other hand, glucose is dangerous and toxic.
I would love to get your opinion on this situation. Please click the link above and go through the survey questions to let me know your opinion on this recent radical change of suppressing alternative viewpoints on health.
What Really Causes Styes and How to Get Rid of Them Fast
Today, I want to share a few interesting natural alternatives for styes.
A stye is a little pimple or pustule on the eyelid, usually involving a sebaceous gland. The sebaceous glands are oil glands. If one of these glands becomes clogged, it can lead to a staph infection and inflammation. It typically causes a lot of redness and irritation.
In many cases, within seven days, the stye will go away. But, some people deal with recurring styes. People with diabetes have a much higher incidence of styes and staph infections.
Sometimes retinoids, a type of vitamin A, are used as a treatment for styes. There is an interesting relationship between vitamin A and styes.
One thing that can occur with a vitamin A deficiency is hyperkeratosis. Hyperkeratosis causes a roughened extra layer of skin tissue in the ducts of the sebaceous glands. This means that a vitamin A deficiency can cause the sebaceous glands to be clogged, leading to inflammation.
A certain study on humans showed a significant vitamin A deficiency in those who had styes vs. those who did not.
Vitamin A is also important for the immune system. A deficiency in vitamin A can increase the risk of infection. Diabetes and insulin resistance can also impair the immune system.
Vitamin D is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatories, and vitamin D deficiency is associated with many different eye problems. Vitamin D deficiency may increase the risk of both infections and styes.
Zinc is important for building up the immune system and reducing the recurrence of styes.
Top causes of vitamin A deficiency:
• A lack of the active form of vitamin A in the diet (retinol)
• Gut inflammation
• Liver issues
• Gallbladder issues
• Lack of bile
• Zinc deficiency
Foods rich in vitamin A include:
• Beef liver
• Egg yolks
• Cod liver oil
The best natural ways to help get rid of a stye and keep it from coming back:
1. Get on the Healthy Keto® diet
2. Take vitamin A and vitamin D (cod liver oil)
3. Take zinc (200 mg for one week, then back to normal amounts)
4. Rub a clove of garlic on the stye a few times a day without getting the garlic in your eye
5. Make green tea, then place the cooled green tea bag on your eyelid over the stye
The REAL Cause of Autism Revealed: Dr. Berg Explains
Let’s talk about a potential cause of autism and some things to do if you or a loved one has autism.
Autism involves inflammation in the brain and a lot of free radical damage without enough antioxidant protection.
Autism spectrum disorder has also been associated with mitochondrial dysfunction, high homocysteine, and amino acid abnormalities.
Common deficiencies in those with autism spectrum disorder:
• Antioxidants (especially glutathione)
• Vitamin A
• Vitamin E
• Vitamin D
• Omega-3 fatty acids
Based on this data, here are a few tips for those with autism:
1. Get on the carnivore diet (include eggs, seafood, shellfish, organ meats, and microgreens or sprouts)
2. Increase glutathione by consuming NAC and selenium
3. Take cod liver oil to get omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin A, and vitamin D
4. Consume vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) and folate (methylfolate)
5. Take CoQ10 and Methylene Blue
The Dangers and Benefits of Alkaline Water
Today, we’re going to talk about the potential dangers and benefits of alkaline water.
Natural water from a well or spring is alkaline. It’s alkaline because it contains minerals like calcium and magnesium.
Many people believe that things that are acidic are unhealthy and things that are alkaline are healthy. But that’s not altogether true. We have a lot of different acids in our bodies that have many important functions.
We don’t need to worry about alkalizing the body. The body regulates the pH in different areas. For example, your blood should be slightly alkaline, but your stomach should be very acidic.
It’s possible to get alkaline water created by a machine that uses electricity to alter it instead of using minerals to alkalize it. If you drink alkaline water that's created artificially, you’re going to alter the pH in the stomach.
Potential side effects of alkaline water made artificially can include:
• Acid reflux
• Hair loss
• Heart arrhythmias
However, natural water, like alkaline spring water, has no side effects.
Alkalizing the stomach could lead to a deficiency in stomach acids. The stomach should be very acidic to help you break down protein, absorb minerals and vitamin B12, and kill pathogens. As we age, we lose stomach acid.
Antacids also weaken stomach acid. But, low stomach acid is the root cause of symptoms like heartburn, GERD, and acid reflux. Alkalizing the stomach instead of acidifying it could worsen these symptoms and lead to many other serious side effects.
I’ve found that I can digest better when I drink acidic water, like carbonated water—especially if I add a teaspoon of either apple cider vinegar or lemon juice.
Overall, alkaline water has certain health benefits because it contains minerals. But alkaline water is only beneficial if it’s natural and not created by a machine.
