  1. I blame the enlightenment of the middle 1800's , people like kelloge who wanted everyone to eat grains for which we are not made to eat.

  2. Dr Eric Berg here on YouTube always talks about how obesity is a symptom and so are most diseases and they're caused by sugar and carbs. Healthy Keto Diet.

  3. My husband turned to an 80-10-10 diet and his entire health turned around. But we went back to a bad diet because his tooth retainer ruined his good teeth and he can no longer chew it. He doesn’t want dentures made of toxins. And a back injury has deteriorated his health again. We are praying through at least eating fully organic and cooked vegys n fruits that he can still keep some good health. His sugar is down but not far enough. But we don’t believe in drugs, in the Bible the word sorcery is pharmaceuticals. The insulin people take just makes it worse and causes more problems.
    My husband brought his sugar readings down 200 plus points by walking up a mountain and walking back down and eating raw okra… in just a few hours.

  4. Powerful information at looking how the body is really always looking for ways to protect us and it makes mistakes and believes a lie at the cellular level. Correcting this misinformation can reverse ailments. Allergies are the same thing. The body can misinterpret the environment or food or chemical with a trauma that is happening at the same time and because it thinks this is a threat to the body it will put up a block to stop it from getting into the blood and then will store whatever it is in the cells. Often, as the Good Doctor says, they go to the fat cells, but depending on what it is, it can go to other cells and create other problems as well as deficiencies because that nutrient is no longer getting into the blood. These out of place, lies have a dissonant frequency which is not harmonious with the body. It can also be communicated with. This is the whole new science of energy medicine and quantum physics.

    It is also important to note that there is often an emotional component such as the Trauma can and often is an emotional trauma. This can also start in the womb and thus trigger chemistry that can affect one.Then it becomes commingled at the cellular level. Vaccines are a huge cause of confusion in the body as foreign chemicals masked as basic minerals but may be one step removed from nature can stop the show by putting up blocks and no one will look at this as caused by the vaccine. (Besides over-amping the immune system and not allowing it to do its job).

    This is another aspect for the Good Doctor to take a look at. I recommend Dr. Leslie Feinberg and his NeuroModulation Technique and Dr. Alex Loyd, Dr. Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique NAET These are 3 totally different approaches that have had good results. NMT and NAET are rooted in the same technology but the Healing Code is different. Also, looking at the wrong messages that were installed into our subconscious before the age of 7 might need a rewrite through one of these methods or even Psych – K, Developed by Rob Williams and recommended by Dr. Bruce Lipton This incorporates The Cream of the Crop Health Care (my company since 1980).

  5. This is so touching and eye opening. What else so you need to know the corrupted system we live in don't want us to be healthy ? They are robbing us and killing us slowly. But yet we have brain to question.

  6. All I know is when I hear doctor, hospital, or health care clinic is criminal, someone who doesn't know what they are talking about, or in it for the money and will just prescribe another "medication" or some other doctor based approval approach to cover up what is really going on. Listen people, I was overweight most of my life, and then got back into shape, and then got fat again. If you sit around and eat a bunch of stuff, of course your going to get fat and feel horrible. If you eat right and exercise you will lose weight and feel better…plain and simple. All I eat now is oatmeal, chicken, lettuce, milk, apples, bananas, and canned vegatables. If you are someone with really bad sinus issues, horrible heart burn, stomach problems, etc…it is the food causing these things. I finally found out what was giving me heart burn so bad, that I thought that I was having a heart attack was, believe it or not, bread. If I eat about 3 or 4 slices of bread, which I would only eat once in a blue moon, I would get heart burn like you wouldn't believe. I don't know what is in Holsum bread, and Thomas blueberry bagels, but let me tell you something, I can see how people can develope cancers from continually eating these foods, and the crazy thing is, is that bread is one of the main things on the food pyramid. The food pyramid is complete bullcrap. Eating healthy is the key to a clear mind, great skin, no heart burn, no stomach problems, etc. Another thing nobody is talking about is soy along with the wheat, and it is in EVERYTHING. When I eat anything with wheat or soy, I wake up the next day depressed, with heart burn, and a very foggy and heavy head and in a really bad mood. I'm telling you people, diet and eating right is key. It took me almost two years to finally figure put what was doing these things to me. Another one is that my skin was filled with rashes and psoriasis, which I had most of my life, amd now it is completely gone and it hasn't come back. I really think that the yeast from bread and other foods kept causing me to flair up with these rashes. I haven't had a bad rash since I've cut out all breads, wheat, soy and other greasy, saturated fatty foods. One more thing to keep in mind is that we need more salt, not less and less of it. Too much is not great, but too little is very bad on the body. Do your own research is all I can say. Look at why oriental country's that salt their food very heavy live longer and do not have heart attacks.

  7. What shoots his theory down it the laws of physics. If what his says is true then the bodies of fat people are defying the laws of physics and people have been eating processed gains and sugar since the 1940's.

  8. He was right to despise her. Insulin resistance doesn’t just magically occur. It is a result of years of eating garbage. This is a perfect example of how correlation doesn’t imply causation. Insulin resistance is a result of lifestyle choices in the overwhelming majority of people, and lifestyle is a huge factor in its progression even in people with some underlying genetic anomaly.

    He “followed the food pyramid to the letter.” Proof. Overconsume insulin provoking foods, get insulin resistant. Ta-daaaaaaah!

  9. It’s not just one thing you can do for DM. Everyone is different your body works differently. The answer is a dynamic one. Treat every person with DM differently. There is not a one answer fit all. Every patient will need dna test cellular testing to see how there cell are reacting. But guess what none of this will matter because it cost to much money and no companies will make money.

  10. We all get things wrong, but the key factor is… did you learn from the mistake and modify your behaviour? Unfortunately these days most patients and relatives only see revenge and £/$ signs, it's a very limited number that only wish to hear the word 'sorry'!

  11. Has he tested whether it's fat that blocks insulin? Intramyocellular fat? And perhaps we eat too much animal protein and fat which causes inflammation, IGF1 growth factor proliferation. See Mastering Diabetes for more info. Eat whole food, plant based diet and follow, Dr. Dean Ornish, Dr. Esselstyn, Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Dr. Michael Klapper, Chef AJ, Dr. McDoogle, etc. Your problems will be solved. You will be healthy and happier.

  12. I tell you, my diabetes started around my age of 52, doctors found my sugar lever is somewhere in 250. So they start diabetes treatment. and later i found out, when i left USA for 15 days even for a month vacations, i noticed my sugar level was not so bad as when i was back In the USA. Later i moved to Philippines where i noticed lower blood sugar than in US. After living here now for 15 years, my doctors tell me i have no more diabetes and i should stop eating Metformin, to kill the effect of diabetes. So i stop. And when I check my sugar level, it is always withing the normal numbers. How can anybody explain that?. US doctor predicted i will have to , in older age, inject insulin and the opposite just happened. I don't use Metformin anymore and eat sweet like a healthy person and sugar level is just fine. Miracle? I think its the food Americans eat. Corporation making food are killing people, here is it still not so bad. Chicken is a chicken, pork is a pork and everything else is sort of normal. My diabetes is the proof of it. plus more sick you are, more Pharma companies make money. They need us to be sick.

  13. My experience is I developed insulin resistance, the glucose was not getting into my cells, I felt hungry, ate more, which made it worse. Due to digestive issues I’m on a high carb diet. I got a blood glucose monitor. I noticed that short spurts of exercise dramatically dropped my blood glucose. Also, I took certain supplements, like zinc, and others, that help insulin long as I do short bursts of exercise and keep a check on my blood glucose my AIC is about 5.2. But before I discovered this it was 5.7 and climbing. So if someone has insulin resistance and doesn’t know it, and is into high carb eating without the balance of protein, fiber, and fat, they may find they’re always really hungry, and eat more and more, causing their blood sugar problem to get worse. I recommend a 10 GE blood sugar meter and some test strips to everyone. It could give you the critical feedback you need so you never get diabetes.
    Knowledge is power.

  14. I am eating less than my daily amount of calories should be for many years but I am still overweight !! recently I have diagnosed with prediabetes !! I am just 24 and I always eat healthily and I don't even like the taste of sugar

  15. Assume that insulin resistance drives obesity. Insulin resistance is driven by many "bad" genes each contributing a little nudge. So…if you reject the obesity–>insulin resistance, doc. You take away all hope–an individual can't change genetics. He/she CAN change lifestyle and diet. Consider the practical nature of treatment–what is under an individuals control (lifestyle and diet) and what is just a crappy hand dealt by a mean dealer (genes). Logical.

  16. This is why im going into medicine, I need to spread the truth and skepticism that has led me to my own good health in the first place.

  17. This “Vαnοjο Fivu” (Google it) is the most smart as well as easy to follow program for overall health and curing diabetes. Through this program, you could change your diet and lifestyle without being particular about your carb or even calorie. My transition to a healthier life style hasn`t just helped me lose fat but also recover from diabetic issues and high blood pressure! It`s correct that you truly could reverse diabetes…

  18. Thank you for this video. I was diagnosed with type one, 4 months ago. 5'2 120lbs. A thousand questions of why??!! I excersised and ate properly. So why??

  19. Please don't take away trillion dollar business of a pill a day pharmaceutical industry please…they want to stop research at treatment level not cure level… Please don't tell truth lolz kidding

  20. Assumptions gave us Macro evolution, without proof, yet believed by most scientists. And they wonder why unproven assumptions have permeated science and medicine. What about not eating eggs because cause cholesterol? Wasn't that science? What about taking the fat out of food and putting in sugar? Yeah, that was a great scientific idea. Assumptions and no proof, then it gets published, and we trustingly follow and suffer the consequences.

  21. 2019 calling you! Yeah, duh. Sugar is toxic. Okay. Thanks. You could have skipped to the point, but I guess that wasn't common knowledge six years ago.

  22. Fatties are gross. They do eat to much and they don’t exercise enough. And it doesn’t take a genius to figure out the food pyramid tells people to eat too much food. This talk sucked.

  23. Dr. Peter Attia is a wonderful person having the courage to admit publicly that he may be wrong about that over-weight patient. He has an audible called "the drive". highly recommend. I like him even more after bumping into his Ted speech.

  24. the real problem in this country (usa), are the DOCTORS , i do get free healthcare as im a veteran , but i still would prefer in an event to go get treated somewhere else , meantime i take care of myself as much as i can .you should do the same

  25. Wonderful talk … today's "given", is tomorrow's "riddle" … rinse and repeat … you can be my doctor any time … need more like you … peace and love to you.

  26. I looked up "Metabolic Syndrome" on the pinnacle of internet intelligence: Google. It stated that it was a cluster of conditions (conditions include increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels) and went on to say that treatment can help, but can't be cured.

    Show of hands, who believes that it can't be cured?

  27. My guess is related to cyclic physical/dietary stress, and the lack-there-of in western diets and lifestyles. This is somewhat of an appeal to nature, but I think its OK so long as it is acknowledged.

    A more 'traditional' human lifestyle involves intermitent fasting, and seasonal dietary composition. You eat a lot of meats in winter season because the animals are out looking for scarce vegetation and have no brush to hide in. Lots of vegetation and/or fish in the spring and summer, and lots of fruit in the fall. and every so often, you eat lots of nothing.

    In the developed world, you eat lots of everything all of the time. I am convinced that the combination of starches sugars proteins and fats all in the same general proportions all of the time, with very little if any fasting, and baseline activity, triggers a 'we have lots of food lets just store it all' mode, which is mediated by insulin resistance. Specifically the combination of fats and high glycemic index carbs.

    I think people on moderate/high carb low fat diets do well, and people on moderate/high fat low carb diets do well, and everyone else is fucking themselves.


  29. Embarrassing our society needs to be Ted Talked into realizing that obese people aren't choosing to be obese. They are sick.

  30. Career suicide caught on camera. The American Medical Association has no tolerance for individual thought. I hope Dr. Attia can make a living selling books, because he'll likely be shown the door. The AMA and big Pharma are in the business of finding new "cancers" – not cures. Finding cures is detrimental to economic health.

  31. I have a different theory. I think our insulin is too high because of infections, probably yeast, fungus, even streps. I think the infection comes first, and keeps your blood sugar too high. So anything you eat after that is too much. I rode my bicycle across iowa, colorado, and my blood sugar stayed at a certain number until I took diflucan. I dropped about 20lbs (fluid) from swelling in about three days. And blood sugar began to work normally by just walking to the milk section of the grocery store. I couldn't lose weight before that. Insulin loves to store fat and hates to let go of fat. Yes, carbs raise blood sugar and your body sends insulin to deal with it, but if you are already high because you have an infection it just compounds. It's not about diet and exercise (yet). It's about finding a doctor that can/will treat infections…yeast, streps, fungal. Then diet and exercise will actually work. Very difficult to lose weight with high insulin. Another problem that I ran into was getting it back after I ate grain. Not sure why. Molds and fungus in grain maybe. But physicians don't see high blood sugar as a symptom ( so they didn't know how to put it in their computer program so I had a hard time getting diflucan which worked for me). Once I got rid of the infections (yeast and strep in my case) I lost 103 lbs. Blood sugar fine…until I ate grain and started the whole mess over again.

  32. Great job, Dr Petter !!!!

    Thanks for the courage because you spoken the TRUTH and God sees that and will reward you greatly .

    I am type 1 Juvenal Diabetic, for 44 years ;following the Food Pyramid led me to have unstable sugar; because of this I lost my eyesight at age 27.
    Now following Dr Bernstein way of eating, my sugar level are in control. I am now 49 and my health is way better with some light of sight coming in my eyes .
    I owe all this to My Heavenly Father .

  33. The other problem is the exploitation of diabetics and low-carb eaters by companies. Look how expensive most low-carb food is. (Food that is "made" low-carb by using sugar alcohol.)

  34. You shouldn't blame people for anything anyway, everyone has a good reason for behaving the way they do. Also, all the medical profession do is prolong suffering with the aid of the drug lords, that is, the pharmaceutical industry. The only way to stay healthy is a happy, calm mind and only put goodness into your body.

  35. I don't doubt that there is still much to learn about every medical issue. What I don't like about this talk is it, in some ways, gives people some ammunition for being obese or staying obese. Obesity is linked to much more than diabetes: hypertension, cancers, and orthopedic problems. That's not okay.

  36. search using a variety of search engines these two words:
    glyphosate obesity
    now these two terms:
    glyphosate type two diabetes
    * page after page of studies showing much more than an association
    * daughter has a masters in public health from a medical school and is a Registered Dietician. She was never exposed to any of this information that these studies show.

  37. its called stop capitalism start socialism and cut the political BS we keep accepting – the fake-matterialism self-centrism –

  38. Good job for admitting how you were, and you have become

    I have a surgeon affect my feelings regarding my weight and so many other people around close and far who pretty did eff over this issue in my head We all need to learn stop being sublime manipulation in one thing or another to one person or another on one topic or another

  39. OMG How much stronger this resonates in me as a true path of finding the real answers than of Dave Ausprey's and similar clowns of marketing DIY.

  40. if you want diabetic info, skip this video. There is almost nothing in it… Just a lot of hypotesis and bla bla. He's a good man, but for info… click 'next video'.

  41. Sugar is in all "food products" we eat. We are being poisoned by food industry. 10 -30 teaspoons of sugar a day without trying

  42. Bless His Heart. This man, this doctor is a GAME CHANGER. This is what the world of humanity needs today.
    Continued Strength to find the solutions Sir! You are in my prayers!
