Walks are a waste of time. I walk 3 to 5 miles 3-5 times a week and it does almost nothing beneficially for the time and effort. You need to stress the heart and blood vessels in your workout to reap results and improve your body.
I walk a lot due to work duties.
This explains maybe why my grandma had cognitive impairment as she aged. She had anemia when she was younger and took lots of iron. I wish I could ask Dr. Barnard what people should do if they have anemia, and don't want to take too much iron.
Propaganda. My parents both have the gene. Both ate fats their entire lives (same diet--she cooked for him. My dad had it, years later, my mom still doesn't. What about past generations who knew nothing about diet. This disease didn't plague them...this has to have something to do with our current environment or foods. Dairy and red meat have been Staples for centuries.
So Jeru-Salem Is-Ra-El thank you for forceing us to be your mind harvest to be your dog.....isnt that what you call us, Cause we follow our hearts...While you harvest knowledge .So who's the wizard then...Nazi's or Jews....
Please note that soya milk should not be consumed by men as it contains natural estrogens associated with some health conditions in men. Enviromentally they typically cut down natural forest in south america to grow them. They are typically sprayed with toxines before reaching the market. Unfortunately bulk commodities are mixed together for transport making it very difficult to separate organic or non organic soya or genetically modified beans.
Thank you dearest Doctor, You are indeed a Godsend. So sorry for your Father, dear. But many will be saved, by your work here and in research. I just finished my 60 veggy smoothie, and am out for my walk now;-)) You know Doc, I go through phases of craving cashews, and then I found out that they are really high in natural assimilatable iron, which is rare.
Once I knock out a 1/3 of a pound of them, I am ok for quite a while. My Grandparents were cashew growers, and lived to be 103 years old.
Give Dr Steve Gundry a call and straighten him out. He's a selfproclaimed "nutritional expert" telling us to stay away from certain plant foods. He's anti-tomato (among other things). I can't stand his pushy YouTube advertisements and infomercials.
I was the sole-caregiver for my mother, who had Alzheimer's. Towards the end, she didn't know, specifically, who I was. She did, however, know that I was someone who loved her, unconditionally, and that she felt the same way about me.... she never exercised...😪
The iron bit is the killer for me. I have Hereditary Hemochromotosis... one C282y gene from each parent. Basically I can't naturally get rid of excessive iron. It stores... everywhere. Antioxidants help ... but I have to go through two stages of Venections ( Phlebotomy) levels of iron to acceptable levels. They took about apint of blood evrey two weeks for about 8 months. Needless to say I have numerous symptoms of the condition, memory being one. Excercise, antioxident rich diet and good hydration are key elements to feeling well for me too.
All of those brightly colored fruits and vegetables are also great sources of magnesium, which I was recently told at a doctor’s office many people are deficient in and need to get more. I asked what were good sources of magnesium and he covered his ignorance by telling me to ‘look it up’ - I already knew but wondered if he did. Apparently no.
💕🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Fabulous talk, giving so much hope, such sound common sense. By eating and exercising healthily, not only will it have health benefits, but will save money and also make you feel calmer and generally more cheerful, more energetic and more alert. I know, having been diagnosed with high blood pressure, I've been doing a 2 mile brisk walk 3 times a week, have lost 10 lb in weight and feel much better. I love my fruit and veg, and although I do eat meat and cheese, it's seldom these days. I wholeheartedly support your views, and would love to see a healthy dietary programme instituted in schools and throughout society.
I think he may be lying about cholesterol. His study didn't say bacon. Our main sources of saturated fats are Cheese, Pizza, Grain-based desserts, and Dairy desserts. And American cheese is second only to the mozzarella that goes on pizza. So what the study really says is that fast food is rotting our brains not bacon and eggs.
Some holes in this talk. Never let MDs teach you chemistry or statistics they never learn actual chemistry or statistics.
- Oxidation creates ions, not radicals. Ions are something have naturally in your body, not harmful at all.
- Iron absorption is from food. Iron oxide is very stable and extremely hard to break apart, the body does not absorb it.
- Showing a plot with 1% and 2% without error bars is nonsense. In most studies the error is larger than the difference he shows.
- What is that cutoff of 21.6gr in the plots? This is a weird point for a cutoff that is probably there to create the needed image he wanted.
- Studies with statistical validity showed a better correlation between sugar consumption and such diseases. What was the sugar consumption of these people? Do people who eat bad food also consume more sugar? YES!
Thank you Dr. Barnard for this amazing information that I hope helps me! Lately, I've been having increasingly alarming problems with memory... I stare at my tv remote and can't remember how to make it work, or what the letter D is called, stuff like this... I will immediately change my diet and start walking... I think that you have just saved my mind and life. Another viewer also commented about too little sleep and stress... I see that I must take my health much more seriously from now on and treat it as the treasure that it is.
Im sorry, but this is very impractical. I used to be vegan, but I was tired of eating every 2-3 hours. Getting out of my lab to snack on lentils + rice + brocolli while my colleagues were able to continue their experiment without having to eat until their lunch break made my life even more stressful than it was before.
Amazing! My grandma has mild alzheimer disease. She's been eating healthy her whole life. She has more energy than me. She volunteers at the Senior Center. She has a super positive outlook in life. She also does word puzzles. I'm surprised that shes loosing her memory.
I tested up at the end. It’s too late for my grandma too. And I hate that I’m just now learning about how we could have prevented her from getting so much worse. If I had only known during the early stages that changing her eating habits and going on walks with her would greatly help her I would have done so. I kind of blame myself but at least because of her, I can now create a healthier lifestyle for both me and my dad to limit our risk and stop it from developing for as long as possible.
This scrawny guy is the poster boy for vegan health? Every vegan youtuber has some health issue going on, mental illness, anorexia, skin issues, digestive issues. Search youtube for veganism - the epitome of malnourishment.
So fulfilling, inspiring, and informative. A must watch. My father, 78, passed in August '18 from a stroke. He was healthy and athletic but, he ignored his emotional and cognitive health. I have so many question to ask about human brain, our mind, and our ability. I wish more people talk about this and more frequently.
Dr. Barnard's message is beautiful and passes on a gift for who'm ever is ready to receive it.
He explained the metabolic processes leading to memory loss and Alzheimers along with prevention methods; he also initiated and finalized by explaining the unfortunate fate of his father.
> This man crafted his speech in such a way that i feel SAD for anyone without access to this caliber of health improvement information.
Vitamin b3 defficiency causes dimentia, pellegra was due to lack of b3 in a high-corn diet in the 1490's, were in corn syrup, the daily minimum of b3 to someone that low is like a daily drop of water to a man rescued walking around a dessert dying of thirst. B3 niacin: niacinamide: nicotinic acid, the body can't make ATP in the muscles without it, nicotine works in the same way, that's why the smoker who got some nicotine in a break doesn't feel hungry all of the sudden, and why vitamin b3 deficient purple find themselves eating more, their body is desisted looking for b3 in those potatoes and tomatoes, and so people who smoke are really addicted to vitamin b3 and nicotine is a straight stream of a replacement fuel, it's all the waste that's added as a fertilizer or bug repeller or flavor additive or preservative that kills everyone who smokes
Every Alzheimer brain studied was gray with aluminium absorption, but that's what we spray for cloud seeeding in the air, the cure is identifying the cause of the disease and prevent exposure, we all know alum. Is bad for the body, but instead we give money to find a treatment program not really stop the cause, instead they start another cause and then ask if you want to give money to find the cure, and the cause, well that's just the advertising campaign.
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
