”I’ve been a champion for vitamin D for over two decades and have been promoting it. It has epigenetic influences on over 2300 genes in your body. And a large number of those genes are related to immune optimization and functioning. There have been loads of epidemiological correlations concerning vitamin D levels, and the likelihood of you dying from vitamin D deficiency or is half of the suffering severe consequences. You can do many things, such as optimizing your vitamin D level, and then also your metabolic flexibility, or your body’s ability to seamlessly transition between burning fat and sugar for fuel. Vitamin D optimization is one of the single most important treasures you can to beat COVID and radically improve your overall health.
Insulin is a hormone that your body produces that causes your body to utilize sugar. Most of us are having too many carbohydrates or processed foods. It’s the processed foods rather than the carbohydrates, and the combination certainly doesn’t help. But there’s a very dangerous, poisonous fat that’s called linoleic acid. It’s an Omega-6 fat, and it’s just pervasive in our food supply for over a century. It’s an adoption of eating foods that decimated our health. The ones that are high in this omega-6 is vegetable oil. They’re called vegetable oils generically. These are the most dangerous poisons that you could intake aside from saying like cyanide that would kill you instantly. These kill you slowly over time, and these are pervasive. I’m talking about things like canola oil, soybean oil which the use has increased like 10,000 fold in the last hundred years. Corn oil, all of those are not only industrially processed seed oil, but they’re also genetically modified, so they’re contaminated with glyphosate. But what’s far more dangerous than the glyphosate and the fact that they’re devoid of other micronutrients and the fact that they had these high concentrations of linoleic acid, which just literally decimate your health at a molecular biological level, at the level of the mitochondria. It radically destroys mitochondrial function or might have caused mitochondrial dysfunction by integrating into a really important part of the inner mitochondrial membrane that gets damaged and oxidized because of this fat that’s not supposed to be there. The simple strategy is to eliminate them from your foods.
The most effective way to treat a disease is to prevent it in the first place. Since 1910, 110 years, when Rockefeller and Carnegie Foundations went in to subsidize the medical school curriculum. And they had a dramatic shift about 110 years ago, and that just changed. Almost all the nutritional information was removed from the curriculum, and homeopathy was destroyed, and it’s just this massive shift.
Many people may not realize that a silver filling is not the majority silver. The majority of it is mercury, which is a poison. Probably more poisonous than the linoleic acid acutely, but concerning the damage, it causes. …one of the targets of our philanthropic efforts is the ability to get mercury out. So mercury is one, and then fluoride kind of goes along with that, which we’ve worked with the Fluoride Action Alert group, Dr. Paul Connett, who has been pretty useful. He facilitated a lawsuit against the EPA, earlier this year, to classify fluoride as a poison. And we’ve shown that science has shown that it causes damage in the brain and lowers your IQ just like lead did.
…not all animal foods are healthy either because there are certain animal foods that are loaded with linoleic acid because of the foods that they’re fed. And this would be things like chickens and pigs…in the chicken, a large percentage of it is linoleic acid, which can damage your health at a molecular level. It makes it for many people, almost impossible to lose weight.
The key is to prevent unhealthy foods, to take action before you need it. And that is usually the wisest, the least expensive, and the most effective strategy to take an intervention to help your health.
Analyze all the foods you’re eating to limit fatty acid from your diet because high levels of it are just a recipe for the destruction of your metabolic health.
The more clean looking the vegetable oil is, the more likely it’s toxic to your body as it has been chemically processed just so they look nice on the shelves. Who doesn’t like the freshly fried french fries with salt, and it just tastes really good. It’s one of the worst things for your body. Maybe doughnuts are worse, but they’re pretty comparable.
The grains are problematic. People think it’s a problem because of the carbs. Yes, it can be an issue, but almost all grains are high in linoleic acid, which is far more dangerous than the carbs. Carbs can be potentially problematic but are necessary, I believe, for staying healthy. Many people are advocates of being keto all the time. When they continue along that path, at some point, their health will suffer because you were designed to have carbohydrates.
Coconut would be a better oil if you’re going to use oil. I just don’t think you need to do that necessarily. Interestingly, too, extensively healthy oils, olive oil, and avocado oil are commonly adulterated. One of the revisions is to put your olive oil in the fridge, maybe overnight or several hours, and let it get cold. And when it gets cold, the healthy fats will turn solid. And the linoleic acid will rise to the top and be liquid. So you take your olive oil out of the fridge, … you … pour that liquid down the drain. Unlike cattle cows or lambs who have more than one stomach, they can take that grain, and because they have multiple stomachs, the bacteria in their stomachs can digest it and convert it to other fats. So they’re not high in linoleic acid. The amount of linoleic acid in chicken is ten times greater than a cow or buffalo or lamb.
I’m sure people have heard of the cytokine storm that typically kills people. And cytokines are simply small protein molecules that are signals to different areas in your body or other tissues. But interestingly, the likelihood of increasing the cytokine storm is exponentially increasing of high amounts of linoleic acid.
My favorite is something called nebulized peroxide, so using a nebulizer, and you simply use very low concentrations of hydrogen peroxide, about 30-fold decrease from the typical concentration at the grocery store or pharmacy. And just breathe it in. I’ve got a video on my site that tells you how to do that. But it’s been so impressive seeing people use it who were very sick, almost felt like they were ready to die at a fever, coughing like crazy, just had no energy and felt miserable. Within hours, they are pretty much normal. you can just easily sterilize the mask that you’re breathing through with some alcohol or peroxide itself.
A good score for vitamin D levels would always be 60 to 80. Typically, the threshold you want is about 40. If you’re watching this from Canada or Europe, the units are nanomoles per liter, which is 2.5 times higher. So instead of 60 to 80, that would be 100-150 nanomoles. But yours was US, so that was nanograms.
It’s only a result of aging because people engage in activities that, when they do this over time, it causes that type of damage. So you can really slow down and many times prevent some of these things like the loss of muscle mass or is also called sarcopenia, the Latin term for muscle pain, the “penia” means poverty and “sarco” means muscle, so poverty of muscle. It’s like 20% of people over 60 have it. So you need to be able to engage in all life’s activities in a full range of motion and movement, and that is the key. And once you stop doing that, it’s a rapid downhill decline. So it’s really important to maintain your muscle mass.
I like something called blood flow restriction training, which I engage in regularly. It came out of Japan from a Dr. Sato and developed a system called Kaatsu, which is short for the Japanese word that means additional pressure…you can still lift heavy weights, but interestingly, the blood flow restriction training seems to provide greater muscle stimulus, muscle growth, and heavy resistance training by itself through a variety of hormonal factors that gets catalyzed through this process. And it’s also related to increasing your muscle density and muscle mass and avoiding this frailty part of it, or there’s a related thing to that as people age, especially women, they lose bone density and suffer from osteoporosis. And if they have a fall and break a hip, then that’s also a very quick decline and kind of death sentence.
…vitamin D can be useful because it gets calcium into the body…magnesium is probably more important. Another biohack that I learned recently that’s useful and it’s very inexpensive to help against osteoporosis and osteopenia would be simply to alkalize your body fluids. The simple way to do that is just simple baking soda, which is almost free. And you could take about a quarter teaspoon three times a day, and that will do it. And you know you’re taking enough by measuring the pH of your urine. How do you do that? You get something as simple as litmus paper, you pick it up on Amazon, and it has numbers from like 1-14, and you want to go for seven. Seven is like a neutral pH. Most people have acidic urine, so it’d be a four or five or six. The lower the number, the more acidic it is. But pH seven is pretty good. You can even go to seven, five, or eight. And you just measure urine when your urine is at that level, then you’re taking enough baking soda. I like potassium bicarb instead of sodium bicarb better. You have to customize it for your own body because some people are going to need a lot more. Like when I fast, I just fasted last week for four days, and fasting, you generate ketones, and ketones are acidic. So I had to double the dose of my bicarb just to keep my urine neutral.
I think once a quarter (Fasting) is more than sufficient. And probably the fascinating aspect of longevity medicine is something called Senolytic therapy. In my view, probably one of the most exciting aspects of anti-aging medicine is the optimization integration of Senolytic therapy, and these senescent treatments can be simple things like Quercetin or Fisetinthat can be done and essentially cause your body to remove them selectively identify and eliminate the cells from your body.
One of the other primary strategies that I would recommend and to obtain metabolic flexibility is something called time-restricted eating. But time-restricted eating is where you eat within a window of about six to eight hours for most people, especially if you’re older. I used to go lower than that, like to eat within two hours even, like one meal a day or four hours. But I think as you get older your body, if you’re over 60-70, you’re going to want to not go much lower than that on a long term basis. Short term, you can do fasting for days, but just to give your body the resources. So when you do that, it just activates all these magical metabolic benefits. And ideally, you want to have that window of the last meal three to four hours before you go to bed. And then you can optimize.
Fasting is a way to kind of speed up the process. It’s not a simple strategy that requires some willpower and discipline but especially the first two days because it becomes more of a challenge the second day. You start to become hungry. But after the second day, your ketone levels arise, which is a water-soluble fat that your liver makes when you’re in a fasted state to give your body energy instead of carbohydrates. Then that suppresses your appetite quite dramatically.
So there’s an application called Cronometer, cronometer.com, it’s free, you can very carefully enter your diet and all the foods and measure it, so you know how much you have with the scale. And that it will tell you how much omega-6 you have in your diet.
“TOP 10 POWERFUL HERBS FOR LUNG HEALTH, CLEARING MUCUS & ELIMINATING DEADLY VIRUSES.“ Video, YouTube Channel, Upward Look TV, 5:20 Minute Video
NUMBER 1. BERGAMOT.
Bergamot is a citrus tree, that is known for its ability to relieve feelings of stress, and anxiety, but it contains properties, that can make breathing easier as well.

It’s another herb, that has traditionally been used, as a remedy for the lungs, and respiratory tract, thanks to its soothing ingredients. The mullein leaf, has antibacterial properties, that fight against both gram-positive, and gram-negative bacteria.
NUMBER 3. EUCALYPTUS.
For thousands of years, the eucalyptus tree has been a source of food for animals, and a medicinal plant to humans. Its health benefits are numerous. The leaves of the eucalyptus tree can be distilled, and diluted into an essential oil, which can be used for medicinal purposes, such as treating sinus congestion, common cold, fever, and other respiratory ailments.
NUMBER 4. OSHA ROOT.
The roots of this herb contain several components, that can provide a boost to your lungs, and respiratory system. Specifically, it helps increase blood circulation to the lungs which, in turn, helps improve oxygenation, throughout the entire body. Osha Root can help, if you are suffering from Sore throat, bronchitis, cough, or common colds.
NUMBER 5. LAVENDER.
Lavender is a plant, that is found all over the world, but many don’t realize, that its properties have been used for medicinal, purposes for hundreds of years. Many scientific studies have shown, that Lavender may offer benefits for those with Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, because it contains antioxidant properties, that work to combat the progression of the disease. One study found, that its aromas help to decrease the production of cortisol.
Cortisol is a steroid hormone, that regulates a wide range of processes throughout the body, including metabolism, and the immune response.
NUMBER 6. GINSENG.
