Let’s talk about benzodiazepines. What are benzodiazepines, what are benzodiazepines used for, and is there a natural alternative? Yes, there is!
Benzodiazepines are used for conditions, such as:
• Panic attacks
Benzodiazepines manipulate neurotransmitters, including serotonin, GABA, and noradrenaline. Serotonin is known to help bring up your mood, improve anxiety, and even decrease cravings.
Noradrenaline is known to help focus your attention, improve vigilance, decrease depression, increase blood pressure, and mobilize the brain and body. It’s lowest when you’re asleep and highest when you’re in fight or flight mode.
Magnolia bark is a natural remedy that has been found to potentially work just as well as benzodiazepines for some people. Magnolia bark has special properties that actually mimic benzodiazepines.
Potential benefits of magnolia bark:
• It’s anti-anxiety (decreases cortisol)
• It may help improve sleep (increases GABA)
• It may help inhibit epileptic seizures
• It supports menopause
• It may help relieve depression (increases serotonin and noradrenaline)
• It may help decrease a fatty liver
• It has properties of cancer inhibition
If you’re on a benzodiazepine, definitely check with your doctor before coming off of it. But, ask your doctor about magnolia bark to see if this more natural solution that doesn’t have a lot of side effects could work for you.

In this video, we’re going to talk about why exercise keeps your brain from shrinking as you age.
A randomized controlled trial on 120 older adults found that there’s an increase in the volume of the front part of the hippocampus when doing aerobic exercise.
This is the part of the brain that controls spatial memory—your ability to remember locations and understand where you are in relation to other locations. The hippocampus is one of the only parts of the brain that can regenerate.
Exercise also increases blood flow to the hippocampus.
Exercise also caused an increase in BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor) in the hippocampus. This helps regrow the brain.
What causes the brain to shrink?
• High blood sugar
What helps you avoid brain shrinkage?
• Intermittent fasting
• Vitamin B1
In summary, exercise, intermittent fasting, and maintaining healthy nutrient levels are some of the best things you can do to help avoid brain shrinkage as you age.
Thanks for watching. I hope this helped explain why exercise keeps your brain from shrinking as you age. I’ll see you in the next video.
Dietary sugar isn’t the only thing that can raise your blood sugar. Diabetics, this video is for you.

Of course, dietary sugar can raise your blood sugar, but something else can do it too. In fact, it’s pretty significant. It’s called gluconeogenesis.
Gluconeogenesis means that your body is generating new glucose from non-carbohydrate sources. Your body can make new sugar from fat or protein. High blood sugar is not just about dietary sugar. Your body makes sugar from other things.
The amount of sugar in your blood is significantly coming from gluconeogenesis. Diabetics have enhanced gluconeogenesis. So, your liver and your kidneys are making a lot of sugar, which raises your blood sugar.
It’s important to keep in mind that the body doesn’t need much sugar. There are very few parts of the body that are dependent on sugar. Everything else can live on other sources of fuel, like fatty acid and ketones.
The body has the ability to make the sugar that it needs. We don’t need to get sugar or carbohydrates from the diet. However, we do need dietary fiber, which is considered a carbohydrate.
If you’re a diabetic, your body is making too much sugar because insulin isn’t working correctly in your body. Even though there might be high levels of insulin in the blood, the insulin is dysfunctional because of insulin resistance. Insulin isn’t doing its job, which is to keep gluconeogenesis in check.
The real problem is insulin resistance. This is what’s causing the high levels of sugar in your blood. I believe the best thing to do would be to focus on fixing your insulin resistance. This could potentially help your body make less sugar and improve your blood sugar levels. In my opinion, the best way to improve insulin resistance is to do the Healthy Keto diet and intermittent fasting.
What if you’ve already started the ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting, and you’re seeing improvements, but you still have high blood sugar? Your body is likely still in the process of dealing with your insulin resistance. It takes time to reverse insulin resistance. The key is to not give up, stay consistent, and know what’s really going on.

A study I read recently talked about how vitamin D levels could be linked to depressed teens. A few symptoms linked to a vitamin D deficiency are sadness, hopelessness, loss of interest, loss of concentration, and even thoughts of suicide.
Potential causes of a vitamin D deficiency in teens:
• Not getting enough sun
• Not consuming enough vegetables (not enough magnesium)
• Snacking (insulin resistance blocks vitamin D)
• A high carb diet (fructose blocks vitamin D)
• Obesity (increases the need for vitamin D)
• Darker skin blocks vitamin D absorption
Other symptoms of a vitamin D deficiency:
• Achy joints
• Low back pain
• Vitamin D (10,000 IUs)
• Vitamin K2
A few more things for teens to do:
• Get out in the sun
• Consume more vegetables
• Stop snacking (do intermittent fasting)
• Get on a low-carb diet (healthy keto)
Thanks for watching! I hope this helps you better understand vitamin D deficiency and depression in teens.

1:08 The best natural remedy for inflamed eyelids
2:01 How to bulletproof your immune system
In this video, we’re going to talk about an excellent natural remedy for inflamed eyelids.
Inflamed eyelids are known medically as blepharitis. This condition can cause your eyelids to become red, irritated, itchy, and crusty. Blepharitis typically appears at the ends of your eyelids, where your eyelashes grow.
The root of this problem is often an overgrowth of bacteria, fungus, or viruses.
The best natural remedy to help get rid of pathogens is colloidal silver. Colloidal silver has potent natural anti-pathogenic properties. It can help penetrate the eyelid, unlike other conventional solutions.
Not only is this an incredibly useful remedy, but there are not any known side effects. Using conventional antibiotics may have unnecessary side effects.
Give colloidal silver a try, and let me know how it works for you!
Thanks for watching. I hope this helped explain why colloidal silver is the best remedy for inflamed eyelids. I’ll see you in the next video.

In this video, we’re going to talk about why fasting lowers your blood pressure.
High blood pressure, or hypertension, is usually an asymptomatic condition. The only way to know for sure that you have high blood pressure is to test your blood pressure level with a blood pressure cuff.
There are two types of hypertension: primary and secondary. 95% of all hypertension cases are primary hypertension.
Primary hypertension is related to lifestyle choices. These are some of the things that may contribute to high blood pressure levels:
• High salt
The problem is, many doctors recommend a diet that includes carbohydrates, such as fruits, whole grains, and simple sugars. In fact, their recommended diet allows 12 teaspoons (50g) of sugar per day. That’s a lot of sugar!
Keep in mind that I am not recommending that you go off your medication without your doctor’s approval. Instead, I want to show you the problems with what many consider a “healthy” diet for hypertension cases.
A study called the sprint trial was done in 2015. This study found that those who are 50 years or old who take medications live longer when taking multiple medications for hypertension.
This sounds pretty good—but, they also found a significant increase in kidney disease risk.
There are many problems with this study. They only used those with severe hypertension and
Another study on 174 people who were fasting found a 90% success rate of lowering blood pressure levels naturally.
When you fast, your insulin levels reduce. High blood pressure is really a result of high blood sugar. This is often caused by insulin resistance. When you lower your insulin levels, you can repair insulin resistance and help normalize your blood sugar and blood pressure levels.
The best natural remedies for high blood pressure are:
• Intermittent fasting
• Vitamin D3
• Vitamin K2
• Healthy Keto
Thanks for watching. I hope this helped explain why fasting lowers your blood pressure levels. I’ll see you in the next video.
