Hidden Cause of Depression and Anxiety

Not many people know about this interesting hidden cause of depression and anxiety. Find out more.

3:53 More on the brain and gut connection 

In this video, we’re going to talk about a hidden cause of depression and anxiety. It has to do with your microbiome—the good bacteria in your gut. 

There is actually a connection between your brain and your colon through what’s called the vagus nerve. But, what’s interesting about the vagus nerve is that only 10% of the information is going from the brain to the colon. 90% of the information is going from the colon to the brain. So, you’re getting a lot of feedback in your brain from things that are happening in your gut. 

The microbiome (your good bacteria) makes a lot of neurotransmitters, which are identical to the ones that your own body makes. 

Your microbiome makes:
• Acetylcholine 
• GABA
• Norepinephrine 
• Serotonin 
• Dopamine 

All of these neurotransmitters can help make you feel calm, stress-free, and happy. If there is a problem with your microbes making these neurotransmitters, you might not feel that great. 

This part of the nervous system is a part of what’s called the parasympathetic, which is all about rest, digestion, and recovery. It’s possible that things like depression and anxiety can occur if your gut is not right.

Your good bacteria also eat fiber from vegetables, and they make small-chain fatty acids. This is a specific type of fat that can provide 90% of the energy for the colon cells. It can also help improve insulin resistance and supports the integrity of the gut lining. There is a huge connection between your state of well being and your digestion.

 On the flip side, if you’re stressed, this can also affect your digestion. 

The brain and gut connection also control:

• Enzyme release 
• Acid production 
• Hormone release 
• The muscles around the colon

Gut Bacteria and Viruses

There is a unique relationship between your gut bacteria and viruses. If you want to keep your immune system strong, you need to understand this connection.

1:59 What happens if you lack good bacteria
2:20 What your gut bacteria do 
5:25 How to help keep your immune system strong

Today we’re going to talk about the relationship between your gut bacteria and viruses. 

What is the gut microbiome? 
Your gut microbiome is a combination of good bacteria and bad bacteria, such as:
• Bacteria 
• Yeast 
• Parasites
• Viruses 

There is something called VLP (viral-like particles). You have a lot of these in and around your body. VLPs don’t have any genetics inside of the cell, but they are viral-like particles that exist throughout the body. 

The human gut virome is clusters of viruses that live in your body, and there are a lot of them. You have a lot of bacteria in your body, possibly trillions. These viruses outnumber your bacteria by 10:1 and, in some cases, 20:1. These viruses typically don’t cause any problems unless you have lowered resistance or a medical problem that makes you more susceptible. This is why it’s important to keep your immune system strong. 

You also have an army of immune cells that include not just white blood cells, but also your good bacteria. 

If you’re lacking good bacteria, the bad bacteria can thrive. Also, if you’re eating foods that create a lot of inflammation, the inflammation can create a shift from good bacteria to bad bacteria.  

Your good bacteria:
• Maintain the integrity of the intestinal barrier 
• Keep inflammation down 
• Compete for space and food (they don’t let the bad bacteria have enough space or food to live)
• Directly kill pathogens
• Enhance immunity 
• There is a link between the gut bacteria and the respiratory tract 
• Recycle and modify bile salts, which are antibacterial 
• Has anti-viral properties 

How to help keep your immune system strong in relation to your gut bacteria:
• Pathogens love sugar—especially candida (avoid sugar)
• Replenish your good bacteria (take periodic probiotics)
• Consume prebiotics (vegetable fiber)

Is Fasting Messing Up Your Sleep?

Have a hard time sleeping while fasting? This could be why!

11 Ways to Boost Melatonin:

0:52 How to fix poor sleep while fasting
1:18 Why fasting may cause poor sleep

Do you find that fasting interferes with your ability to sleep at night? Quite a few people have told me that their sleep isn’t as good at night while they’re doing intermittent fasting. I recently found some research on why this might be. Take a look.

In this study, the researchers found that energy restriction for 2-7 days caused decreased nocturnal secretion of melatonin by 20%.

What can you do about this? There are two things you can try:

1. You can add MCT oil to your diet. You want to have this just before bed.
2. Increase your carbs to 50g a day.

Try one of these and see how it affects your sleep.

The reason for this problem has to do with insulin resistance. You could have insulin resistance that has been there for a long time. This causes your brain to be starved of glucose. It can take your body time to adapt to ketones so that your energy, especially in the brain, isn’t restricted.

High Doses of Vitamin D Can Deplete Magnesium

High doses of vitamin D could cause a magnesium deficiency. Learn more about vitamin D and magnesium.

0:03 Vitamin D benefits

1:08 Magnesium and calcium 
1:32 Magnesium deficiency side effects 
2:12 Magnesium and Vitamin B6 
2:44 The biggest danger
3:04 Magnesium-rich foods 

Today we’re going to talk about vitamin D and magnesium. A lot of people are taking a good amount of vitamin D because of all of the amazing benefits of vitamin D, but high doses of vitamin D can deplete magnesium, which isn’t good.

Vitamin D is important for:

• The immune system 
• Keeping calcium in the bone
• Decreasing inflammation

If you have large amounts of vitamin D over time without enough magnesium in your diet, this could intensify a magnesium deficiency. Vitamin D and magnesium work together. If you increase vitamin D, you could potentially decrease magnesium. 

Magnesium has a very important function of keeping calcium from accumulating inside of the cells, kidneys, arteries, and joints. Magnesium is similar to vitamin K2 in that vitamin K2 helps keep calcium from building up in the soft tissues, but magnesium does that as well. 

When you take high doses of vitamin D3 without magnesium, you could potentially end up with:

• Kidney stones 
• Calcium buildup where it should not be

If you consume a good amount of vegetables every day, or you take a good magnesium supplement, you don’t have anything to worry about. Vitamin B6 is also very important and helps both vitamin D and magnesium work. But, again, if you’re doing healthy keto, you shouldn’t have to worry about this. 

Possibly the biggest danger is if you’re a stone former and you take a lot of vitamin D without getting enough magnesium because this could potentially increase your risk of kidney stones. 

Consuming at least 7 cups of vegetables per day will help you get the magnesium you need. Leafy greens and certain nuts are rich in magnesium.

Reduce Coronavirus with High Temperature and Humidity

Could a change in the weather help reduce coronavirus transmission? Check this out.

0:58 Why this new information makes sense when looking at the coronavirus outbreak 

I’ve got some good coronavirus news for you today. There is a paper titled “High Temperature and High Humidity Reduce the Transmission of COVID-19.”

According to this paper, higher temperatures and higher humidity significantly reduce the spread of the coronavirus. This means that the arrival of summer and a rainy season may effectively decrease the spread of COVID-19. 

This could make sense because when the coronavirus pandemic first began, certain countries that were warmer and more humid had fewer coronavirus cases than countries with a colder and less humid climate at the time. 

In the next few months, as the temperature is warming up and the humidity is increasing, I think we may see a significant drop in the spread of the coronavirus.

The Side Effects of Calcium Carbonate You Need to Know

Are the side effects of calcium carbonate worth taking it? Here’s what you need to know.

1:52 Calcium carbonate side effects 
2:12 Contraindications to calcium carbonate 
2:49 The dangers of calcium carbonate 

Today we’re going to talk about the side effect of calcium carbonate. A lot of people take calcium carbonate, but they don’t know much about it. 

The biggest thing you need to know is that calcium and other minerals need an acidic medium to be absorbed. If your stomach does not have the acidity you need, the calcium will not be absorbed well.

A lot of people take calcium carbonate for heartburn, and the calcium carbonate dries up the acid in the stomach over time. So not only is the calcium not being absorbed, but it also ends up actually causing heartburn. In my opinion, apple cider vinegar might be a better choice for GERD or heartburn. But, of course, check with your doctor. 

Some studies show that high doses of calcium carbonate also do not increase bone density in osteoporosis. But, it did increase the risk of heart attacks. 

Calcium carbonate may even lower the thyroid function and block a person’s ability to utilize T3 (the active form of thyroid hormone). 

Side effects of calcium carbonate:

1. Loss of appetite
2. Constipation
3. Gas
4. Nausea 
5. Vomiting 
6. A decrease in hydrochloric acid (HCL)

Contraindications to calcium carbonate:

• Kidney stones
• Hypercalcemia 
• Calcification 
• A severe interaction with 210 drugs 

A lot of people are taking massive doses of calcium carbonate, thinking that it will prevent bone loss when it could actually be creating other issues.
