Another article that also caught my attention… as this hits home in my family…. Can you be obese and healthy? Let’s discuss your Microbiome and the gut. Can these microbes play a role in obesity? We… the starch queens…. Have a weight loss program.. Which in reality… the weight loss is a side effect of changing your health… and we focus on educating people on how to change. What advice can you give to help a person to prepare mentally, physically, and emotionally to begin a change to a plant based way of living? Why is it important for a person to let their doctor know that they are changing their diet? Would you recommend doing bloodwork or biometrics before you begin? Another concern is that many people fear is that they will become protein deficient! What are your thoughts on this? What supplements do you recommend to people following a Plant Based Lifestyle? Would you share any other ideas that can help people to be successful eating WFPB…and hopefully to continue this way of living? Brooklyn borough president Eric Adams is one of your star patients….

Putting Power Foods to Work - Foods that Shield your from Toxic Metals with Dr. Neal Barnard. 1) In the brain of someone with Alzheimer’s Disease, you typically find this beta amyloid plaque. If you were to break apart this plaque, what would find? 2) Do we need metals in our body? 3) Why are are copper and iron unstable? 4) Free radicals cause issues in the body. Just what are these pesky things… and what do they do to our body? 5) Share with us the results from a study from Rome where they studied 64 women as well as the study done at the University of California where they studied 1,451 people. 6) What happens if we have too much copper or iron in our bloodstream? 7) You mention there is a relationship between these metals and bad fats that attack the brain. First, what are “bad fats”? and how do they assault the brain? 8) In the last video, we discussed the role of the APOE e4 allele, which is the gene linked to Alzheimer’s risk. Is there a relationship between copper and this gene? 9) What is hemochromatosis? and what are the issues that this causes on the body? 10) Zinc seems to play a different role than copper and iron in that it seems to encourage these beta-amyloid proteins to clump together. How does this work? Why is this happening? 11) So where are these metals coming from? 13) There are 2 forms of iron… heme and non heme. Where do they come from? 14) How is the difference in absorption rates of heme and non heme? Is one more absorbable than the other? 15) What about mercury? Was this another metal found in the plaques? Is this bioaccumulative? 16) What about the mercury that was used in the fillings in our teeth? Would this cause an impact? 17) Years ago, nutritionists were concerned that people wouldn’t get enough iron and zinc in their diet as they were not eating animal products. Is this still an issue? 18) Do we need aluminum in our body? 19) Is aluminum considered a neurotoxin? Is it bio-accumulative? What effects can it have on the brain? 21) Where is this coming from? 22) So aluminum is controversial… can this put us at risk for Alzheimers? 23) So how can we shield and protect ourselves?

....conventional medicine takes a reductionist approach. I have heard this term. But what does that mean and how does it affect me?
LaRay Seier - Admin for PlantBased - Tullahoma, TN
Are there easy tips to transition to Plant Based for diabetics? How do they manage their blood sugars to ensure stable levels. Most I speak with ask what to eat and how much. They are so used to counting carbs, calories etc. Will they just follow the same process as others and just eat the colors of the rainbow, increase fiber intake? What about fruits? How do they incorporate those with meals? Are there certain fruits to limit or avoid?

Can diabetes hide itself? Be masked as something else? My A1C is 5.5, doc said all normal, that I'm keeping it under control, so does that mean I still have it?
Can symptoms like tingling in the leg and foot start before Diabetes show up in the numbers found on the A1C test?
Would like to know if taking diuretics for high blood pressure affects the kidneys.
Do we become dependent on taking diuretics? Especially long term.
I always thought being plant based I needed to take B12. My Dr suggested getting the shot monthly because it metabolizes better. Is this true?
My triglycerides went way up.
Any suggestions what i can add to my diet?
