Ketosis Makes Metabolism Make Sense

Hey, it’s Dr. Schmidt. So let’s talk about metabolism. So I’ve been doing some
studying this weekend and I figured out some
things that actually makes a lot of sense
and it’s very applicable regarding the definition
of the word metabolism. So when you go
into some textbooks or you Google it,
the word metabolism, you’ll get biochemistry
and it doesn’t apply. Like you can’t really
see what’s going on when you’re looking at
these chemical equations, but you can see it in the body. So I’m going to talk
to you about metabolism as it relates to the body
and then two other words. Catabolism– which
is the breakdown of the body and anabolism–
which is building up. So just bear with me. It’ll only take a few minutes
but once you get this, then you can see things
in a different light. So you can have anabolism
which is building up of healthy tissue
or unhealthy tissue. So anabolism of unhealthy
tissue would be the building up skin tags, moles, cancer– stuff like that, bad
stuff, fibroids, cysts. But you can also have the
anabolism of healthy tissue. So that would be, like,
the repair of my finger. I cut my finger off almost
and I got 10 stitches and a little circle. And that tissue is building up. And its– at first it was
scar tissue that broke off and now it’s coming
back very nicely. Anabolism of muscle,
anabolism of bone– the building up of
bone and muscle. So that’s good. And then you get catabolism
which is a breakdown. So catabolism of fat cells– that’s a good thing,
you make them smaller. The catabolism of
pathological tissue– cancer and skin tags,
moles, fibroid, cysts. OK, but you can also have
catabolism of healthy tissue– that’ll be like the wasting
away of muscles osteoporosis is the catabolism of bones. So what you want
to do is you want to catabolize bad
stuff, pathology, and you want to have
anabolism of healthy tissue. And that’s how you stay alive. That’s the fountain
of youth, if you will, is to keep and maintain
your healthy tissue and at the same time,
always destroying your unhealthy tissue. So, now, let’s talk about
ketosis and glycolysis and lactate fermentation. OK, you’ll get this,
just bear with me. So ketosis is when your
body’s burning fat as fuel and it converts
that fat into water soluble chemicals, as opposed
to just using fat alone. So with ketosis, you’re actually
getting all the benefits of the ketone bodies. I promised I wouldn’t talk
about biochemistry but, look at, I’m talking about biochemistry,
but it’s actually very easy. So when you’re in ketosis,
it kills most cancers and there’s research to
back up that statement. And with ketosis, you burn
access fat away, especially– initially, the fat that’s
inside your organs, like, in your pancreas
causing diabetes, in your liver causing high
liver enzymes on a blood test, et cetera, et cetera– burning the fat out
of your arteries. So ketosis though, also,
if you eat enough protein, you can build muscle. You can repair your tissue. You can repair your skin. You can repair leaky gut
and various conditions inside the body. So you can still have
adequate amounts of protein or high amounts of
protein and you’re anabolizing healthy
tissue, and in ketosis catalyzing unhealthy tissue. Perfect. Ketosis is the native
state of the body. I’ve been saying
that for three years. Now, let’s talk
about glycolysis– that’s sugar burning. So there are people in
glycolysis their whole life. And at the age of 60 something
they have a sudden heart attack and they’re dead, or
maybe they survive it but they have pathology. Or they get a diagnosis of
cancer and it’s, like, well I’ve been eating healthy
food my whole life– eating all my vegetables, and
all my fruit, and lean meats, and, or I eat eggs in the
morning and chicken at dinner, but they’ve never
been in ketosis. So in glycolysis, they
are not breaking down– they’re not catalyzing
unhealthy tissue. And I did a low-carb diet
for, you know, since 2000 not being in ketosis up until 2016. And I would have to say
that just doing low carb isn’t enough. You’ve got to have higher
amounts of protein. OK, so the point
here is you want to be able to build up your
normal body tissue, breakdown pathology, and ketosis does
that and sugar burning does not. OK, so there’s quote unquote
“healthy vegetarians” and inside their body something
pathological is going on. And it may take 30 or 50 years–
and that’s true for everybody, even with the standard
American diet. So as, you know, as
they go along always, always, always burning
sugar, now they’re setting themselves up for
some sort of a disease state, or a condition. And so now I’m going
to like scooch forward into lactic acidosis. I’ve talked a lot about this
and I still have not really found another social
media health care person that’s really grabbed
down to it like I have, even though I’ve been talking
about it for a number of years. I’ve been studying
more lactic acidosis. And with that cycle
of lactic acidosis, it’s a net of negative 4 ATP. It sucks energy from your body. And so that’s why when
people are in cachexia, they had a heart attack
or they have cancer and they’re losing weight. They’re losing their muscles. They’re losing all
their tissues and they may drop half their body
weight before they die. That’s because cachexia
or lactate fermentation– also known as lactic acid cycle,
also known as lactic acidosis, also known as the Cori cycle,
it’s all the same thing, five different names– it’s taking ATP in order
to use lactate as energy. So if you’re an athlete
and you’re running and you sprint 20 minutes
or even 30 seconds, your muscles burn and
they’re using lactate. It’s not sustainable so
the athlete has to stop. If they exceed that
threshold, they have to stop and then their muscles go back
to using and making sugar. Whereas with lactate
fermentation, it’s all in the liver. So, now, if you’re
diabetic and you have a metabolic– all right,
let me define metabolic again or metabolism. OK, anabolic means building up. Literally, like,
thousands of years ago in ancient Greece or ancient
Latin or Roman languages, it meant taking a
ball of dirt– that’s the bole part, anabolism. You take a ball of dirt from
the ground and you throw it up into a pile– anabolism. Ana is up, catabolism is down. So you take that ball
of dirt from the pile and you throw it down
back into the hole. So we’re going to the
etymology of these words. Metabolism is the change between
the two– meta means change or in between. So that’s what metabolism is. It’s where are you at? Are you anabolic or
catabolic for whatever tissue that you want to address? All right. So if you want to
anabolize or have an anabolic state for healthy
tissue, then get into ketosis. if you want to break
down pathological tissue, then get into ketosis. But if you want to
anabolize and build up your pathological tissue, always
bearing sugar and even worse get into lactic fermentation. So that’s sort of
the story about that. There is something
else I wanted to say. Oh, yeah, the flexibility
between the two of glycolysis and ketosis– let’s call that
flexitarian, that’s a really good state to be in. Metabolic flexibility
is a good thing. Metabolic syndrome, as
defined in medicine, is when you have
glycolysis all the time. And now you have
high blood pressure, and your ankles are swollen up
and your blood sugars too high, your insulin is too high, and
you have all these symptoms, really of, access glycolysis
leading into lactic acidosis leading to death. All right, this is sort of,
like, from the day you’re born to the day you
die, it’s all traceable how your physiology
changes based on your– if you’re eating the
standard American diet. OK, so that’s what
metabolic syndrome is. It’s just too much glycolysis. They should call it
glycolysis syndrome. Well, they do they call it
diabetes, diabetes mellitus. Mellitus means sweet tasting
because the kings used to have their doctors
taste their urine and the doctors would taste
the urine and it’d be sweet, and so that’s where
the word mellitus comes from– diabetes mellitus. OK, so there is that. I wanted to go over
that because I just thought it was interesting
and sort of like overreaching. This is something
that I was googling some websites and
some YouTube channels, trying to see what they had
to say about metabolism, catabolism and
anabolism and they didn’t explain it this way. They were talking about
pyruvate and talking about various biochemical
reactions [? alters ?] very small size, you know,
under a microscope and smaller biochemistry. But you can see it in the body. You can see when somebody
is 50 pounds overweight, and they’re taking blood
pressure medications, they’re on a statin drug. And then the way you
reverse that is you change your metabolism from– well, you change it to
the ketogenic catabolism and anabolism. So I hope that makes
sense, all right. Thanks. I’m going to answer
some questions. What I’m going to try
and do is every Monday and every Wednesday,
at 6:10 PM, go live and we’ll see how it goes
regarding the weekend. I’m not sure what to do with
that but that’s my goal. So hi, Susan. All right, let me
answer some questions. Can you talk about how
babies are born in ketosis and how they are
in keto in the womb and stay in keto
while breastfeeding. You know, I looked up
the macro break down and there are carbs in it. Right. So the baby’s
metabolism is so geared towards ketosis and
the carbohydrates, I don’t remember what percentage
of breast milk is carbohydrate, but it has a lot of
fat in there too. So it’s just like any– like an adult, let’s
say, that’s 35 years old. They’ve been in
ketosis for five years. It’s very hard to
get out of ketosis because, like, in
classical physics, the law is a body in motion
tends to stay in motion. That’s true with the
cells in the mitochondria. You’ve been feeding
them fat, they’ve been burning fat for five years. Now, you’re going to eat sugar? They don’t just convert
to glycolysis like that. It may take a week
or may take longer. But studies have
shown that the kids– newborns, infants, toddlers,
and then up into the teens– they’re so much more
metabolically flexible that when they’re
in ketosis, they might stay in ketosis longer
despite their high-sugar diet, right. And so I don’t know. I’m not going to give
you any examples of that. But that’s the basic
premise of that. So are you fasting Dr. Schmidt? Yeah, today was an 11 hour fast. I just had some cheese
and so that’s still like a ketogenic food. And then in another hour or
two, I’ll go have dinner. In the last weekend, I’ve been
eating about two meals a day. And, yeah, that’s
my answer to that. OK, so during the
weekdays, I just had a breakthrough for my own
personal health improvement. During the weekdays when
I’m seeing patients– last week I had one meal,
I think it was Wednesday. I can’t remember what day it
was but i skipped breakfast and I was able to skip dinner. I just had lunch which is a
big deal because it’s a weekday and I’m seeing patients. Weekends– not a big
deal, that’s easy. All right. Can a prostate cancer
patient prior to surgery, five months, water fast– three to five days– worry
about ketosis and raising PSA? Yeah, I wouldn’t be going
into ketosis with a high, with a prostate cancer with
a high PSA because prostate cancer loves to burn fat. You want to do the
pescatarian diet. So, now, if you wanted to try
some intermittent fasting, for whatever purpose or
reason, just do it for, like, three days only. But you can check
your PSA and you can see your PSA go up
and down, even in, like, a one week period. So you can get your
doctor to order a PSA and then do five day water
fast, then do another PSA and see what happens. That would be an experiment. All right, cool. Plantar fasciitis type pain
soon after starting strict keto carnivore liver? Good question. It would be more of the– I think it would be more of
the mineral deficiencies. So when it comes to
mineral deficiencies, my answer was always eat
more Celtic sea salt. But now it could be more
magnesium powder or potassium powder. So, but you can do all 3. And then look at Dr. Berg’s
video on plantar fasciitis cause most people are
trying to stretch their calf muscles to fix that problem. It’s not, it’s the
opposite of that. You want to fix the
muscles that are on the– they’re not, like, on the
shin, like, directly interior, like in the front of
your body of the shin but more on the
sides of the shin. Those are the muscles
you want to stretch out for plantar fasciitis. So check out Dr. Berg
on his video on how to stretch out plantar fascia. OK, so this is a cool. Manuka honey bandage from
CVS are great for wounds. It healed my second
degree blisters on fingers and in three
weeks, had no scarring. I saw those when I was shopping
around for bandage for that and I didn’t buy them. But thank you, Karen H.,
for that on the Manuka honey bandages from CVS. Those pharmacies,
man, they’re iffy. All right. I’m a keto carnivore,
this guy Finley– have had heart rhythm issues. Doc told me it was
vitamin D deficiency. Been on [INAUDIBLE]
two months feel better about heart skipping
every fourth beat followed by a strong beat,
otherwise healthy 39. Yeah, that’s some– check,
look at those minerals I just mentioned and then you’ve
got to check out Cataplex B and G, primarily Cataplex
B from Standard Process. It’s on Amazon. And take like 9- to 15-a-day. I’m not your doctor,
though, I didn’t say that. And I’ve never taken your
history and it could be mold. It could be a parasite. It could be a
mineral deficiency. So I don’t know what it
is but try the Cataplex B and that will help. Keep your head above
water, if you will, while you’re trying
to find the cause. And the cause might just
simply be B vitamin deficiency. All right, cool. How will people get
potassium in carnivore diet? Will it be pulled
from your bones? No, see the high potassium
recommendations in the US RDA are there because the
standard American diet is so high in carbohydrates. So the USDA food
recommendations are all based on a high-carb diet. When you go carnivore, you’re
maintaining your minerals but initially you drop
your insulin down, and you could pee out
potassium because you urinate excessively. So initially, you could
take potassium powder, you know, it might be
six weeks to four months and usually not
longer than that. Avocados have more
potassium than bananas. So avocados, they’re really
good for the keto carnivore way of eating initially. All right, cool. Thanks for the question. So hey, Doug. What’s the difference
between K2 MK-4 and K2 MK-7? I don’t know. When I sell, I sell Patrick
[? Fiat’s ?] Multi-K vitamin product. It’s called Koncentrated K– concentrated begins with a K.
Anyways, it’s got all of it in the way that he
wanted it put together based on the years, and
years, and years of research that he did. I haven’t studied the
difference between the two. I just put people on a
Multi-K and they get better. How do you treat
scoliosis, Dr. Schmidt? I don’t treat scoliosis. I’m assuming you’re
talking about a kid. I would send them
to a chiropractor that says that they focus on
the treatment of scoliosis. OK, I’ve had to have two steroid
shots and pills for poison ivy. Yeah, that’s the internal. I read that prednisone
kicks one out of ketosis. Possibly. Can it quickly
correct it somehow? Side effects are awful. Yeah, you’ve got to fix
the immune system problem. I had a patient once– she
had poison ivy for two years and she came in and it
was all on her arms. And I was, like, yeah you’ve
got to fix the inside. Fix up your immune system. And her diet was pretty
clean to begin with. From Standard Process– Immuplex and Cal-Amo,
and Spanish black radish. So those are ways
you can speed up the recovery of the
poisonous plants like poison ivy, poison
oak, and even insect bites. So again, it’s just venom. It’s just natural poison from
the insect or from the plant– messing with your
immune system– causing havoc, you
know, in the long run causing some
autoimmune conditions. You’ve got to normalize
the immune system. You’ve got to clean
out the poison. All right. That’s a good question and I
never really talked about that in any of my videos. I think, I think
I’ve got 370 now. OK, protein came back
low in blood work. Is it a liver problem or kidney? Moderate blood in
urine tests also. Yeah, I’m not sure what
to say about that one. And, like, the
protein– is it albumin? So there’s more
data I need and it would take me some investigation
to figure that one out. What blood tests for 17-year-old
daughter with low energy, left hip pain, with
one leg turning out? X-rays show no [INAUDIBLE]
eight degrees leftward, [? a ?] [? peg ?] scoliosis
centered at T10 rocking type, walking knees wobbly. I don’t know. What’s her nutritional status? I would feed her a whole
bunch of meat and hope that it would– her spine and her nervous
system and her muscles would heal just
like this finger. What’s her diet like? It better be filled with meat,
more than a pound-a-day, Cathy Connolly. I switched out animal
only fat for three months, for three months
and I feel great. And not doing even
coconut or olive oil. That’s a very good point. The animal fats are so much more
important than the plant fats. And even myself
and other people, currently, but I quit saying
this about two years ago– I would say high-fat,
moderate protein, low-carb. And I had people scoop
tablespoons of oil under their mouth– coconut oil MCT oil, but I
quit that because people get diarrhea from it, Avocado oil. It’s, like, the animal fats
are so much more valuable and consider that even
though the avocado, coconut, and olive oils– they’re more natural
than canola, you know. They’re fruit oils,
they’re not seed oils. But the body– our bodies
evolved not on avocado oil, it didn’t exist. And you can argue that
it’s better for you. It’s good for you
or you can cook with it and all this
stuff, that’s great. But I have cut way back
on that myself since I’ve been carnivore. And, yeah, I’m using
bacon fat for cooking my, or butter cooking my eggs in. But it’s, like, just when I’m
cooking steaks or burgers– grass-fed burgers–
and I’m eating that fat, yeah the desire,
the need, and the attention on those plant oils– gone and
just feeling so much better. And I can see with
my patient’s, right, compared to three
years ago versus now, just focus on the animal fat. That’s what we’ve done. That’s food, that’s
really good food. I was looking up some
definitions of words and I was going to do a
whole video about this. But I want to say it right now. The word meat meant food
since 2000 years ago. All food was meat, whether
it was plants or animals, or whatever. And meat actually
meant moist, meaning the blood– you kill an
animal, it’s red, it’s moist, so meat meant moist. We’re talking about
probably nine or 10 different languages
going back, you know, 1400s, 800s ancient Greek. And then what’s interesting
is in the 1400s, in France, they came up with another
word to describe other types of food other than meat. And they used the term green
meat to describe vegetables. So it’s just interesting,
like, food is meat. And then you can separate
out other types of food. And you call this green meat
and then later came white meat. I just thought that
was interesting because green meat is
not meat but that term didn’t come, the idea to
think of plants as a food to be described or to be
categorized as a food, that wasn’t until the 15th century. OK. OK. Are you welcome for the
answer, Jake and Tiffany’s DIY house and home? All right. Heart palpitations
while on keto. Yeah, Cataplex B or Cataplex G.
And then see if you have mold, it could be the mold. I had horrible
heart palpitations when I had toxic black mold– just takes some investigation. What is your take on chelation
therapy and stem cell therapy? That’s a big question and
I’m going to keep this short. So I’m trying to keep
this at a half hour, so I only have a
few more minutes. I’m a big fan of
chelation theory but it’s gotta be done right. And the IV chelation is
not nearly as effective as some of the
pills that I have. Stem cell therapy,
that should be more of an injected injection. I do have pills of
stem cell therapy, I just haven’t used
them that much. Because when you look at the
context of health improvement care, you’ve got to fix the
causes, address the mechanism, and then you feed the
organs to repair the organs. So you have step
one and two first, and then you feed the
organs with stem cells or whatever else
you’re going to do. So I fixed a lot of people and
we don’t use any stem cells. So it all depends. All right. I’m a pro arm wrestler,
cool burn [INAUDIBLE] typed this question before. My elbow and wrist
joints go through hell. What’s the best way to heal
[? strains ?] and joints? Oh, yeah, red meat and then
supplement wise, Glucosamine or Chrondroitin Sulfate. And then when you
get a supplement that has glucosamine and
chrondroitin in it, it should have a list
of other ingredients– those would be the main
ones– but other ingredients for joints and healing
and bone and maybe even reducing inflammation
like boswellia or turmeric. So there’s a product from
Standard Process called Glucosamine Synergy
and it has everything I just mentioned
in there, and it has glandular is in there
too, like, connective tissue from an animal. So there’s my simple answer. I could have just said
Glucosamine Synergy but I wanted to subscribe it. What would be your
dietary recommendations intake of micronutrients
for a person in ketosis? I don’t have any. There was a post on social
media regarding Cronometer which is the app I love to
use for people to put their food in and track
their macronutrients and micronutrients. And when you look at
the micronutrients, it’s based on the USDA RDA of
vitamins and minerals and all that stuff. And there is a guy, he was a– he said that when
he was a vegan, his micronutrients were
all green on Cronometer but he was dying. And then he switched
to carnivore and now his micronutrients
on Cronometer are red, meaning he’s
deficient but he had the best health of his life. So I think the
whole micronutrient thing is a total scam. It’s not a scam,
it’s just not right. It’s not true and it’s
based on no science. It’s a lot of expert opinion,
right, which is not science. Like fiber for example, look at
the recommendations for fiber based on age from the USDA. There is no science
whatsoever on that at all. So there’s people eating
nothing but meat for 20 years– they get zero fiber– and they’re perfectly healthy,
and the cause of colon cancer is sugar, you know,
all that stuff. I don’t have recommendations
for micronutrients. The only thing is,
if you get cramping, it’s because you need
some more minerals. And, you know, within four
months that is usually [? handled. ?] Mold can be in the
joints causing pain, yes. I’ve been trying
to push meats, OK. All right. This thing jumps
around so I know I’m missing some questions. Somebody gave me $10. Thank you, very much. All right. Would you recommend
pork lard in keto diet? Absolutely. Pork lard is a
fantastic food that has maintained the
health of generations of millennia of Chinese. The Chinese eat pigs and
there’s the Okinawans– the island of Okinawa means
the land of the pig eaters. There’s no danger at all,
whatsoever, regarding pork lard. I love that answer. People hate– vegans
hate that answer. Dietitians, nutritionists,
doctors, medical doctors, hate that answer. It’s the best answer ever. You can take Cataplex
B and G together. You would take B more in the
morning and lunchtime, and then G in the lunchtime
and later in the day. So you get energy
during the morning and then more calming at night. That’s kind of how I do that. Vlad the Impaler
says I don’t eat pig. Yeah, I have a lot of
patients who are Muslim, they don’t eat pig– which is totally fine. Some religious things
about that and here’s a religious thing about it– back in the biblical era,
it was just an observation that those people
here were more sickly and they tended
to eat more pigs, and these people didn’t eat
pigs and they were more healthy. So an observational
study but the truth is, it probably
has something to do with parasites, not the
saturated fat or the whatever. OK, all right. Now, we’re talking about pigs. OK. All right, cool. It’s been a half hour. Thanks for your questions. So it’s Wednesday, in two
days, 6:10 PM livestream, and come with your questions. I don’t know what I’m going to
start off with– some topics and then I’ll talk
for 10, 15 minutes, then we’ll get into
some questions. That’s how I’m
going to run this. So I’ve got to do a plug. You’ve got to listen to
my plug about my office. We have a phone,
you should call it. We have an email inbox,
you can email us. We’re accepting new patients. And I have other
practitioners in the office. We have people come in locally,
we have people flying in. We do or, for some people
it’s just all over the phone. We have different packages and
I will put that information down below this video. And I’ll see you in two days.

  6. kmichalene Posted on September 24, 2019 at 1:09 am

    Thanks, as usual, Dr. Schmidt. The information is always so interesting. One thing people don’t seem to address is one’s relationship with food. Do you have any advice for those of us who don’t have a particularly good relationship with food, which makes it difficult to transition to healthy ketosis-inducing foods. Do you have any input? Do you work with any patients like this?

  7. anon mouse Posted on September 24, 2019 at 1:23 am

    Ketosis is mostly to feed the brain and baby brains are bigger compared to the body than adults. This is part of why babies are usually in ketosis.

    To the guy asking about arrhythmias: Arrhythmias usually occur when transitioning between ketosis and sugar burning. I've had ablation done for arrhythmias.

  12. joe bob Posted on September 24, 2019 at 6:11 am

    Dr Schmidt,
    What are your thoughts on the use of fungus as food and medicine? And the work of Paul Stamets.

    What are your thoughts on hemp as a food source? Mainly hemp milk, and also what are your thoughts on coconut milk? My Viome results made it very clear that all dairy is causing a certain type of bacteria to over grow in my body that cause mucus and increases the inflamatory pathways, so Im trying to go without dairy again, and I always notice my sinuses clear up just after a few days of no dairy. It did say ghee was ok and does not feed that bad bacteria. My only two other foods to avoid were bananas and oranges which also increase inflammatory pathways. I already knew bananas didnt make me feel good a long time ago and i never eat them. I dont crave oranges much either.

    What are your thoughts on A1 vs A2 casein?

    What is the lowest cost test that I can have to see if I have any parasites? My doctor collected my stool and the labs tested me for some pathogens and i didnt have anything they tested for. But i dont think they tested for all the common worms.

    Two things in my Viome results that surprised me were they recommended that I limit my consumption of sea salt as well as pork. I was surprised by both.

    dr berg is still telling people to take cod liver oil

    Dr Schmidt, doesn't baking soda put the fire out in the case of lactic acidosis? And researchers have found that Tri Sodium Phosphate[TSP] found in cleaning products also does the same thing, of course in very small doses. Maybe because the phosphate in TSP feeds the ATP in our cells? They have studied this in regard to athletes.

    Thank you for sharing this important information. I use an Emu/Manuka/Teatree oil mix in a roll on, for wounds, they do seem to heal faster, not sure which one off the 3 is the magic ingredient though. Lol. Take care of yourself. ❤🙂🐶

    You mention tumeric ? That’s incredibly high in oxylate. Is it just vegetable oxylates to avoid ?

    I'm going to get some lard at the butcher shop asap. Darren, I'm curious – what's your opinion on using olive oil? People in the Mediterranean reagon use it a lot and they are/look pretty healthy.

    Vegans have substantially lower death rates than meat-eaters, a major study has found.
    The study has been published in the JAMA Internal Medicine Journal and reignites debate around increasingly popular vegan diets amid conflicting medical advice and evidence over their impact of proponents' health.

    The research was undertaken by scientists at Massachusetts General Hospital, who monitored health and diet records of more than 130,000 people over the course of thirty years. They found every three per cent increase in calories from plant protein was found to reduce risk of death by 10 per cent. The figure rises to 12 per cent for risk of dying from heart disease.

    Doc, could you tell us something about keto during pregnancy. Is it possible to do keto while breastfeeding? My kid seems to become colicy whenever I eat keto. I really hate to switch to carbs.

    Dr Schmidt, have you ever tried Korean Bamboo Salt? Therapeutic salt with minerals …. pretty fascinating what salt can do for us

  26. Grace Lockhart Posted on September 25, 2019 at 2:13 am

    Fantastic explanation Dr. Schmidt. I am to thin. How do I go back to keto and not get skinnier?

  27. Es Cal Posted on September 25, 2019 at 6:57 am

    My grandma specially bought butter for her babies (in 1950 ies) Now I know why.

    I cut part finger tip off by accident. I used hydrogen peroxide to clean it….. Wrapped it tight. Once it stopped bleeding I put raw honey on it and covered it up. Took bf&c by Dr Christopher…. It grew bk. Perfectly!

  29. MommaD* * Posted on September 26, 2019 at 12:10 am

    There's no minerals in our food. You need fat. Not carbs! Almased protien w almond mild or coconut milk no sugar, no carbs.

    Babies born in ketosis are small and skinny.

  32. Kelly Marin Posted on September 26, 2019 at 10:05 pm

    I have in the past lost 40 plus lbs eating lower carb bit if I try to get back I get very anxious and even panic attackz I think from the lack of carbs in my body

    Great videos Darren.
    Question for future: Any advice on how to convince relatives/friends that what they hear from the mainstream propaganda is pretty much lies?
    I found my relatives did not want to listen to me until my grandfather had a "critical heart failure" scare that stumped the doctors until I figured out it was a salt deficiency, gave him a bit of salt and he got better in 10min. After that they have started listening to me but they still rely on that TV box that tells them fiber, fruit, and oats is fantastic, etc…
    They often use the excuse that "you are not a doctor, and the doctors you are references are chiropractors(back masseuses)."
    For now I just pleasantly repeat myself, tell people to just try it out for 2-3 days and see if there is a difference, and that changing diet can take time with many slip ups. ….sorta working.
