1:40 Vitamin D and COVID-19

Today we’re going to talk about the relationship between COVID-19, mortality, vitamin D, and latitude.

There are actually all sorts of diseases related to latitude. For example, if you live in the northern hemisphere, you have a higher risk of getting:

• Colorectal cancer
• MS
• Diabetes type 1
• Breast cancer
• Celiac disease
• Lung cancer

An interesting report states that “low population mortality from COVID-19 in countries south of latitude 35 degrees north supports vitamin D as a factor determining severity.” Nordic countries are an exception likely because they consume a lot of fatty fish and take vitamin D supplements. 

Vitamin D regulates and suppresses inflammatory cytokines. Vitamin D doesn’t kill the virus, but it can help suppress cytokines, respiratory macrophages, and ARDS.  

You can also see lower vitamin D levels in people who have conditions that can increase the risk of death from COVID-19, such as:

• Hypertension
• Obesity 
• Diabetes
• Cardiovascular disease

Vitamin D is incredibly important to support the immune system and for suppressing inflammation in the respiratory system.

Hydroxychloroquine’s New Study Causes Higher Death Rates is Misleading

This misleading study on hydroxychloroquine could create a lot of damage. Here’s what you really need to know. 
 
Timestamps
0:00 New hydroxychloroquine study 
0:44 What is a retrospective study? 
1:20 What is hydroxychloroquine?
2:23 A deeper look at the study 

Today we’re going to talk about a certain study that has been circulating the news regarding hydroxychloroquine. 

According to the news, this study found that hydroxychloroquine was not effective and was even associated with a higher death rate. 

• This study wasn’t even published yet. 
• This study wasn’t peer-reviewed.
• This study was a retrospective study.

A retrospective study means that they’re using data or events that happened in the past. This was done in a VA hospital. They took the data from the patient’s charts and summarized it. This study included 368 patients, and they compared three groups of patients. 

The first group was treated with hydroxychloroquine. The second group was treated with hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin. The third group was not treated with hydroxychloroquine. 

Hydroxychloroquine is an ionophore. It allows zinc to travel inside the cell. If there’s enough zinc in the cell, this can potentially inhibit the machinery that’s causing the replication of the virus. It sounds promising, especially when combined with zinc. In this study, they did not use zinc. Vitamin D was also not involved. Vitamin D is incredibly important in supporting the immune system and inhibiting cytokine storm.

Each of the groups in the study is very different. Severe cases of COVID-19, as in the first two groups, require hydroxychloroquine. Less severe cases do not, as in the last group. 

This study emphasized that the group that wasn’t treated with hydroxychloroquine had 18 deaths versus 27 deaths in the group treated only with hydroxychloroquine. 

Without understanding this study, it appears that the drug could make you worse. But, in reality, the groups treated with hydroxychloroquine were much sicker than the group that wasn’t.

What Is a Lymph Node?

Here’s something interesting you should know about lymph nodes and your immune system. 

Timestamps

0:45 Most important lymph nodes function 
1:37 What’s inside a lymph node? 
4:50 What happens in the lymph node
5:25 What can cause issues with the lymphatic system? 

In this video, we’re going to talk about lymph nodes and your immune system.

You can think of the lymphatic system as a back-up drainage system to prevent excess fluid retention. But, this is just a minor function. The big function is the activation of the immune system. 

 One of the purposes of the lymph nodes is to keep a pathogen from spreading throughout the body. You will have an entire war going on within the lymph nodes if there is a pathogenic microbe.

A person has hundreds of lymph nodes throughout the body. Inside of a lymph node, there are lymphocytes. There are three primary lymphocytes:

1. Natural killer cells (kill viral-infected cells)
2. T cells (kill specific microbes and determine self from non-self)
3. B cells (make antibodies)

Inside of the lymph node:
• There are a lot of antibody reactions going on
• The immune system presents tiny parts of pathogens to the T cells 
• There is a lot of lymph-blood exchange 
• It filters certain cancer cells

The spleen is the largest lymph node. When someone has their spleen out, they have an increased risk of infection. Chronic stress activates cortisol, which then can shrink the lymphatic system. A zinc deficiency is another thing that can cause issues with the spleen and the entire lymphatic system.

Cravings and Hunger NOT Going Away on Keto and Fasting?

Are you still hungry and having cravings on keto and while fasting? Here’s why and what to do.
 
Timestamps
0:00 Keto and intermittent fasting
1:25 Ketosis  
1:46 What to ask yourself if you’re hungry and having cravings
2:29 How to stop cravings and hunger on keto 
2:36 A few more things that could cause hunger and cravings on keto 
3:20 Are you craving salt?

In this video, I want to talk about why you might still have cravings and feel hungry while on keto and intermittent fasting. 

If you’re following the exact healthy ketogenic diet plan, your cravings will go down to zero, and your hunger will go down to zero. When you’re doing the right program, your body has converted 100% to the state of ketosis. Any glucose your body needs it can make itself. You do not need to consume sugar or carbs. 

If you’re hungry or craving something, think back to what you ate yesterday. Was there anything you ate that you shouldn’t have? Did you eat keto-friendly foods that have maltodextrin or tapioca? Even fruit or dates could create hunger and cravings the next day. 

The cause behind cravings on keto or hunger while fasting is almost always that the person had too many carbs the day before. If you stay consistent each day, your hunger and cravings will go down. Once your hunger and cravings do inevitably go away, this diet is very sustainable.

A few more things that could cause hunger and cravings on keto:
• Stress
• Poor sleep

COVID-19: Is It as Deadly as They Say?

1:04 COVID-19 and antibodies 
2:44 COVID-19 fatality rates 

Today we’re going to talk about the infection fatality rate of COVID-19. The infection fatality rate is basically the percentage of how many people who were infected with COVID-19 died. It’s the number of infections divided by the deaths from the infection. 

Recent evidence indicates that COVID-19 may not be as deadly as previously thought. This really has to do with a lack of testing. 

It was thought that about 1 million people were infected with COVID-19. But, new evidence suggests that this number is way too low by a factor of 10x, and possibly even up to 30x. 

The coronavirus has a goal of getting into the cell and quickly doing damage. Once the virus is in the cell, the immune system doesn’t know it’s in there until after it replicates, and it comes out of the cell. Then, the immune system starts to attack the virus, and there is an immune reaction. At this point, B cells start making antibodies to COVID-19. 

Let’s say you overcame an infection, and you get tested for it. They’re not going to find the virus, but they will find antibodies to the virus. It has been found that a lot more people had the infection, overcame it, and developed antibodies without ending up in the hospital or having any significant problems. This new information creates a completely different picture of the infection fatality rate.

Use Forest Bathing for Immune Boosting

It’s crucial to support the immune system. Forest bathing could be a fantastic way to do that.

3:29 The importance of strengthening the immune system 

Today we’re going to talk about using forest bathing to boost the immune system. Forest bathing was used in Japan in the 80s for physical and mental health. It’s about getting out in nature and taking in the forest atmosphere. 

Basically, you’re out in the forest, and you’re breathing in certain chemicals or essential oils from the trees. There seems to be a very interesting immune benefit from being exposed to certain essential oils emitted from the trees in the forest. The group of compounds we’re talking about is called phytoncides. 

This chemical could significantly increase your natural killer cells. The natural killer cells are a part of the innate immune system, and they do several things. They will actually punch a hole into cells that have been infected by viruses and destroy the cell and the virus inside of it. 

Different studies have also found that diffusing the essential oils with the same chemical in the home could provide benefits. 

Forest bathing could potentially provide not only immune benefits but stress lowering benefits as well. It’s incredibly important to do what you can to strengthen your immune system. This could be a fantastic, natural, and inexpensive way to do that.

Are You Turning into a Germophobe?

Are you a germophobe? You might find it helpful to know that not all microbes are bad! Check this out.

2:40 Friendly microbes and your food 

Are you becoming a germophobe? I’m not against protecting yourself against the coronavirus or any virus for that matter. Yes, masks and washing your hands are incredibly important. But, here’s the thing, not all microbes are harmful. 

Friendly microbes are not pathogenic. Pathogens are microbes that can cause disease. A huge part of your immune system is friendly microbes. These microbes live all over your body on the inside and out. When you over-sterilize your body, this can lower your immune system and make you more susceptible to infections. 

A few benefits of your friendly microbes:

• Certain microbes make acid that makes a pathogen not want to live in that environment. 
• Friendly microbes make vitamins to support your immune system. 
• Friendly microbes have anti-tumor properties. 

In some studies done on mice, they found that mice without any microbial life were more prone to autoimmune diseases, allergies, asthma, and other health issues.

Your skin flora is very necessary to protect you—it’s an immune defense. When you alter this microbiome, you basically throw the body out of balance, and you could develop inflammatory conditions. 

Over-sterilization can also lead to a decrease in T cells, which are important in preventing inflammatory reactions throughout the body. 

Even sterilized food (pasteurized food) goes through a process that kills off everything, including enzymes. These sterilized foods can potentially weaken the immune system.

4:32 How to stop absent-mindedness 

In this video, we’re going to talk about absent-mindedness and how to improve absent-mindedness. 

Absent-mindedness is basically a lack of awareness. If you’re absent-minded, you might be forgetful and easily distracted. It could be happening because your brain cells are tired and starving for energy. 

Your neurons are normally dependent on glucose or lactate for fuel. But, when you consume those fuels, they have a side-effect. They can potentially cause cognitive dysfunction and absent-mindedness. 

But, your body can use another type of fuel called ketones. Ketones suppress glucose utilization. If there are ketones and glucose in your blood, your brain will use ketones instead of glucose. 

A simple solution to bypass a damaged nerve cell is to start increasing ketones. Ketones can feed the neurons what they need to function. They also affect the potassium channels, which can increase the communication between neurons. 

You can generate ketones by lowering your carbohydrates below 50g. You also may need to increase the time you fast. You would want to do at least 18 hours of fasting with a 6-hour eating window. You may also want to add exogenous ketones. A great form of exogenous ketones is MCT oil. 

How to overcome absent-mindedness:

1. Sleep 
2. Stop thinking so much 
3. Support your gut microbiome 
4. Ketones
