Hello Health Champions. Today we're going to talk 
about 10 serious body signs that you really need   to know. The first one is chest pain or pressure 
across the chest and this could be something as   serious as a heart attack but it could also be a 
lesser version of heart disease called angina and   that's not where the heart is damaged but angina 
is when it's not getting enough blood supply and   it's kind of fighting to produce energy and it 
starts cramping and you get that pain shooting   out oftentimes into the arm another thing could 
be simply indigestion or gerd gastroesophageal   reflux disease and that could also manifest 
as chest pain we could also have anxiety   or panic attacks a lot of people with severe 
anxiety or panic they will sense that pressure   across the chest and the pain could also be from 
an infection in the lungs called pneumonia or more   serious would be a pulmonary embolism which means 
there's a blood clot that's formed somewhere and   then it's dislodged it comes loose and it travels 
and it gets stuck in the lung if that happens in   the brain that's called a stroke if it's in the 
lung it's called a pulmonary embolism either   way the blood vessel is blocked off it's clogged 
and no more blood can flow and the tissue around   there is damaged so if this was a heart attack 
or a pulmonary embolism then you have to really   get to the ER as soon as possible if it's any 
of the other things now it's not as urgent and   you can start looking at resolving the root cause 
and breathing exercises can be hugely beneficial   because most of these other things have to do with 
stress and there are some products though that can   help and one thing we find in our Clinic is cardio 
plus anyone that needs some heart support cardio   Plus usually comes in very useful and if you have 
the angina if you have those cramps in the heart   then what you're looking for is some vasodilation 
and there's a product called cataplex E2 also   from Standard Process now cataplex E2 there's 
a percentage there's a portion of that in the   cardio plus already so if you need more General 
support cardio plus is great if you need some   extra help with evasive dilation then you could 
get the cataplex E2 or maybe both so that you   can get some extra cataplex E2 and that can really 
help dilate those blood vessels and help get that   heart a little bit more blood and if your problem 
turns out to be indigestion or gerd then what you   actually need is a little more acid so apple cider 
vinegar is acidic or zypan is a product that has   hydrochloric acid in it which is a little more 
powerful even than apple cider vinegar because   it's not that gerd is too much acid like most 
people think it's that you don't have enough   so the body can't complete the digestive process 
in the right way you add some acid and now things   work better and most of that gerd goes away in 
most cases number two is shortness of breath and   what that simply means is the body's not getting 
enough air or oxygen so it tries to compensate   by breathing more and the first thing we want 
to think about is anemia that means lack of   blood so you don't have enough oxygen carrying 
capacity you don't have enough red blood cells   or enough hemoglobin in the red blood cells and 
then you can't distribute that oxygen properly   now in my blood work course I talk about which 
scenarios you could benefit from Iron because   most people just think anemia you need iron but 
there's some cases where iron will actually hurt   you you already have enough but you still can't 
make those red blood cells and in those cases you   might need some other micronutrients shortness of 
breath could also be something called COPD chronic   obstructive pulmonary disease so either there's a 
lot of resistance in the lungs or the heart is a   little too weak to pump blood through the lungs 
either way we don't absorb that oxygen we can't   distribute that oxygen properly and another one is 
called emphysema that usually happens to smokers   after many years of smoking their lung tissue 
starts breaking down and is destroyed so you   don't have the same surface area and you can't 
absorb the oxygen either and there's no simple   fix for this but you can try breathing exercises 
especially with steam If part of this problem is   that you have mucus and buildup then that can help 
dissolve some of that and breathing exercises can   also help relax and dilate the tissues a little 
bit and if you do have some destruction or stress   to the lung tissue or some irritation then 
you could use emphaplex or something called   pneumotrophin PMG both of those products show up 
a lot in our office for people who have any sort   of lung issue and this could also be very helpful 
after a severe infection like a pneumonia or even   covid or a serious cold where the tissue has had 
some stress number three is a severe headache   and a lot of people anytime they have a severe 
headache they call it a migraine but actually   migraine refers to half a brain so typically with 
a migraine you're only going to have it in half   the head but it doesn't mean it's any less severe 
but all other types would be tension headaches and   cluster headaches so those are just descriptions 
of different types of headaches but you could have   different causes also so you could have one from 
a stroke if it comes on very suddenly and it's a   type of headache you've never had before you want 
to take that very very seriously that could be a   stroke which again is either a bleed in the brain 
a ruptured blood vessel or a clot in the brain   it could be sinusitis meaning an infection in the 
sinuses and sinuses are small caverns in the bone   in the front of the head and if they get filled 
up with fluid they can put pressure and create   headaches pressure can also be created by brain 
tumors obviously or we could have something called   a hypertensive crisis which is a sudden very high 
blood pressure and this is not your average 150   160.

This is when something gets completely out 
of control and your blood pressure is 180 200   or above that type of blood pressure can create 
serious headaches and that is also a hypertensive   crisis it's also a medical emergency so with 
anything that happens suddenly and something   that's worse than you've ever had before you want 
to go visit the emergency room but if it's not   that urgent then you want to figure out what 
the root cause is and address that root cause   obviously some of the first things that you want 
to try are some Diet changes some eliminations   because a lot of times there are triggers that 
people are sensitive to different foods and the   top foods to avoid would be wheat with gluten 
in it chocolate alcohol especially red wine is   a trigger for a lot of people and also caffeine 
can be a trigger number four is a sudden weakness   on one side of the body and this is pretty 
serious and you want to think stroke again   but it could also be a transient ischemic attack 
a TIA which is not a full stroke but it looks the   same in the short term whereas a stroke is a 
permanent damage to brain tissue a TIA is a   temporary cutoff of blood it's where you have a 
spasm where the blood isn't getting the oxygen   support and it seems like a stroke but it goes 
away after a few minutes or maybe up to an hour   and then you're back to feeling normal but you 
want to take this very very seriously because it   means that there's something not working right and 
you're probably much more likely if you have these   repeatedly you're much more likely to actually be 
at risk for stroke the weakness could also be from   a disc herniation and we're talking a severe disc 
herniation where the disc ruptures like a donut   you squeeze out the jelly out of the donut and 
it puts pressure on a nerve and if this happens   on one side of the body which typically it's 
going to be more on one side then you could lose   muscle function in that side of the body but you 
would also have severe pain associated with that   either way if you lose muscle function it's pretty 
serious and you want to go to the emergency room   however it'd be much better to prevent this 
altogether and then we need to understand   where most of these problems come from and 
cardiovascular disease and stroke are primarily   caused by metabolic problems metabolic syndrome 
and insulin resistance so the way to avoid it to   reduce your chances you can never eliminate risk 
entirely but you can reduce chances very much by   eating right and not becoming insulin resistant 
and there's no substitute for lifestyle changes   but if you'd like a couple of products to assist 
you as you're making Lifestyle Changes there's a   product called cataplex gtf and gtf stands 
for glucose tolerance factor and another   one is diaplex from standard process and both of 
these will help your body utilize glucose better   and regulate that blood sugar a little bit better 
number five is loss of bowel and bladder function   and this is really serious it relates to what we 
just talked about which is severe disc herniations   the difference here is it's happening a little bit 
further down and it's happening at a place called   The Kata equina and Coda equina means horse's tail 
so down at the bottom of the spine the spinal cord   comes to an end in the lower back and then from 
above that we have these nerve roots coming off   of the spinal cord but then at the end they just 
start traveling further down and at the end we   don't have the spinal cord we just have these 
nerve Roots going on for a few inches and this   is called the cauda equina or the horse tail now 
if you have a severe disc herniation this is a   place where you can affect both sides of the nerve 
roots and if this happens to a serious degree you   could lose bowel and bladder function another 
thing you'll probably notice is a loss of muscle   function and a classic sign is called foot drop 
that means if you set your heel down normally you   smoothly put the rest of the foot down but with 
foot drop you put the heel down and the foot just   flops straight down and you can't lift the toes 
off the floor anymore and if any of this happens   you definitely want to get to the emergency room 
as soon as possible number six is difficulty   speaking or understanding speech and the first 
thing we want to think about here is stroke if it   comes on suddenly but it could also be some other 
type of brain trauma like a severe concussion or   even a tumor that's growing in a specific place 
face if this happens slower more gradual onset   now we're thinking degeneration which would be 
something like a frontotemporal Dementia or it   could also be the other types of dementia like 
Alzheimer's or also Parkinson's all of which are   neurodegenerative the brain breaks down over a 
period of time and as far as whether it affects   the speech or the understanding depends on where 
in the brain this is so if we have the brain here   and we have the frontal lobe we have the occipital 
lobe we have the parietal lobe and the temporal   lobe then the frontal lobe is the motor that's 
the output the speech and there's an area there's   a cut off here between frontal and posterior so 
motor is in the front sensory is in the back and   the speech area is sitting right here it's called 
brocus area so if that is affected by a tumor or a   stroke now you would lose the speech you can still 
understand but you can't speak and these people   oftentimes they think that they're speaking they 
know the words they want to come out but nothing's   happening however if it's the other way around you 
can't understand what people say then it would be   an area back here in the sensory portion called 
Wernicke's area and now these people can make   sounds they can speak but they don't understand 
what people are saying so fronto-temporal dementia   tends to affect speech more than also Alzheimer's 
because frontotemporal is going to affect the   frontal and the temporal but because that includes 
the frontal then the speech the motor function is   affected the Alzheimer's is going to be more in 
the temporal occipital not so much the frontal   at least at first so they would have more of a 
loss of understanding speech rather than speaking   and of course Parkinson's has a problem with 
motor function not just speech but all sorts   of movements so they would also have trouble 
more so with speaking than understanding so if   there's a sudden onset then you want to get to the 
emergency room if it's more of a gradual onset now   we want to do prevention we want to get healthy 
and what does that mean it's all the things we   talk about on this channel we address the chemical 
structural and emotional stresses of life and one   of the biggest ones again that causes degeneration 
is insulin resistance so we want to learn where we   are on that scale of insulin resistance by 
measuring the right blood markers and then   taking the right action and there's not like a 
magic pill that's going to solve all these issues   but if I was to pick just one that most people 
are deficient in it would be fish oil and if   we're talking brain then we want to think DHA and 
the product I have in mind is called tuna Omega   because it's very easy to take it is inexpensive 
for what you get normal fish oil most fish oil   sold has a certain ratio of EPA to DHA and both 
of these are good but DHA is mostly the building   material of the brain the cell membranes and 
most fish oil has a three to two ratio where it   has more EPA but the tuna Omega has a five to one 
ratio where it has more DHA so both of these are   good but if you're looking for that brain support 
then tuna Omega would be the one number seven is   loss of consciousness also known as fainting or 
syncope and when you pass out it's because the   brain does not get enough fuel and this could be 
low oxygen or low glucose or even ketones but most   people aren't in ketosis so if this would happen 
because of low glucose it is really difficult to   get your glucose that low standard hypoglycemia 
is not going to do that but if you're a type 1   diabetic meaning you depend on insulin so every 
time you eat you take some insulin you each blood   sugar goes up you take insulin to bring it down 
but if you mismanage this and you don't eat but   you still take the insulin now you're going to 
push down that already low glucose into levels   where you can actually pass out but when it comes 
to blood supply there are two mechanisms and one   is called vasovagal syncope and Vaso means blood 
vessel and vagal refers to the vagus nerve or the   parasympathetic nervous system so if we have 
an over activity usually from an emotional   shock of some sort something emotionally very 
upsetting then people tend to pass out and what   happens it with that over activity is that we 
slow down the heart we decrease the pumping   strength of the heart and we dilate blood 
vessels all at the same time so the blood   follows gravity and goes away from the head and we 
pass out now the beautiful thing of course is that   when we pass out then gravity pulls equally so now 
the Blood starts flowing in the body more easily   without so much blood pressure and the blood 
returns to the brain the other way is called   orthostatic hypotension and this is kind of the 
same but sort of opposite and what happens here   is we start laying down or sitting up and then 
we stand up very quickly because what happens   now then is gravity is going to start pulling 
the blood down away from the head and we need   to compensate very quickly we need to create 
increased blood pressure with vasoconstriction   and the body part that handles that is called the 
adrenal gland so if we have adrenal insufficiency   if they don't respond quickly enough or forcefully 
enough then we don't get enough of a response to   keep the blood in the head and we feel a little 
light-headed or dizzy and in severe cases we   can actually pass out so all of these are going 
to have different solutions that can be pretty   complex but if it is orthostatic hypotension most 
of the time it's going to be adrenal insufficiency   and a great way to support the adrenals long term 
is with a product called drenamin we find that   most people with adrenal fatigue are going to do 
really well with drenamin over a longer period of   time number eight is unexplained weight loss and 
sometimes this is because of cancer especially   toward the later stages of cancer where the 
body is getting really tired of fighting this   cancer and it doesn't even have enough resources 
anymore to absorb to digest absorb and make new   tissues because that's very expensive offensive 
with energy and these people also after so long   of having cancer they don't have much of an 
appetite and it could also be hyper thyroid   or Graves disease and these people are going to 
have a huge appetite they're going to eat all   the time but because the thyroid is overactive 
then it's just burning off everything you eat   it's like your furnace is running at Double speed 
and your heart rate is high everything is moving   faster in the body you're just burning off that 
energy like a wildfire it could also be that you   have undiagnosed type 1 diabetes and this is one 
that most people don't realize because most people   think diabetics are overweight but with type 1 
diabetes just in the face that you're getting   it you're going to go from having some insulin and 
over a period of time it drops down to where your   body can't make any insulin and as you're getting 
really close to zero your blood sugar is going to   rise that's why it's called diabetes but because 
you don't have any insulin none of that Sugar can   make it into the bloodstream and you can't absorb 
any fuel any calories so you lose weight no matter   how much you eat all you do is you urinate and 
you pee out all that Sugar that's why type 1   diabetes used to be called starvation in the midst 
of Plenty and people used to die from this usually   at a fairly early age or so many years after they 
got it today it's pretty simple we have insulin   and it's very easy to figure out if you just 
measure the right thing so if you do regular blood   work and you actually measure both glucose and 
Insulin then you will quickly figure out if this   is happening because your glucose will be super 
high and your insulin will be almost non-existent   you could also lose weight from severe depression 
and now the mechanism is that you're so depressed   you don't really want to do anything and you don't 
even have an appetite and one more cause for this   would be IBD inflammatory bowel disease so unlike 
IBS which is irritable which is more about stress   inflammatory means that there's a fire going 
on and the plastic cases of this are celiacs   and Crohn's disease and when the tissue is so 
Disturbed then it can not do its job of absorbing   nutrients so now we eat things but we can't absorb 
the nutrients and we just flush it straight out so   all of these are very serious and they're very 
different so obviously you just need to figure   out what's causing it and work from there number 
nine is swelling of the legs ankles and feet and   swelling is also called edema and this is where 
fluid leaks out of the blood vessels and into   the tissue so they look puffy and this could be 
caused by heart failure meaning that the heart is   not strong enough to push the blood all the way 
through so it pushes it weakly and now it's not   strong enough to return the blood from the legs up 
back into the heart so we it leaks out because we   have too much fluid pooling in the lower part 
of the body it could be kidney disease if the   kidneys are not filtering the waste products and 
the electrolytes properly now those can build up   those waste products and they bind fluids so again 
we have more fluid in the body a really damaged   kidney can also start leaking albumin which is 
your main blood protein and this protein acts   as a sponge to keep the fluid in the blood vessel 
and that also relates to the liver so if you have   liver disease because the liver manufactures this 
albumin so if the liver is really damaged now you   can't make enough albumin and you can't keep the 
water and the blood so there's a couple things you   can do to manage the symptoms you can Elevate the 
feet if you lift the feet up then gravity is going   to help pull the water back to the heart or you 
can use compression stockings you can add pressure   and that's also going to push the fluid back 
to the heart and avoid that excessive pull But   realize both of these are not really going to make 
you any healthier they're just going to handle the   symptom they're going to improve the symptoms so 
they're definitely worthwhile doing but what you   really want to do is you want to start a lifestyle 
to heal your heart kidney and liver hopefully   there'll still be time to do that and like we 
said before prevention involves reducing insulin   resistance because metabolic poor health is the 
cause the primary cause and we want to understand   it's not 100 of the cause it's not for a hundred 
percent of the people so when we say the vast   majority that's what it means but there's still 
other things that can cause this but for the vast   majority insulin resistance causes heart disease 
kidney failure and liver disease so by making   sure you're metabolically healthy and insulin 
sensitive that's going to be your best bet to   avoid these things and again there's no substitute 
for lifestyle changes but there are some products   that can help these organs so if your heart kidney 
and liver need some help we find that cardio plus   Renafood and livaplex work really great they're 
whole food products they're safe and they can   support this tissue over quite some time number 10 
is weakness or fatigue that simply won't go away   so if you're working too hard if you don't get 
enough sleep for a period of time then it's normal   to be tired but if you rest you should bounce back 
if this doesn't happen then that's a problem very   often they simply call it chronic fatigue syndrome 
and chronic simply means you have it you're tired   all the time and syndrome means they can't figure 
out where it's coming from and it can be very   difficult because there are many different reasons 
but some of these would be anemia again a lack of   blood if you can't distribute oxygen you can't 
make energy but it would take a pretty severe   anemia Mia to cause this chronically and severely 
it could also be a sleep disorder meaning that you   have sleep apnea or insomnia so sleep apnea means 
that you stop breathing sometime during sleep so a   lot of people they can't regulate their breathing 
patterns during sleep and they shut down the   breathing for 30 40 50 seconds at a time and then 
the brain kicks in even without them waking up and   they start panting and then they start breathing 
and they go through these cycles and this   interferes with the quality of sleep the brain 
can't really get through all those stages of sleep   that helps it recover and insomnia is basically 
any form of poor sleep either you can't fall   asleep or you fall asleep fine but you wake up 
multiple times and you're right fully awake during   the night so you're not getting that quality or 
amount of sleep and fatigue can also be caused by   chronic stress and this is why it's so difficult 
this is why chronic fatigue syndrome is so common   in my opinion because chronic stress what that is 
it's an ongoing sense of overwhelm and how many of   us can't relate to that that no matter how much we 
work there's always more stuff to do and it's hard   to feel good and energetic and look forward to 
that it drains us when we feel We're Never Enough   so what we can do there is first of all to 
identify the cause if there is an organic   cause but I believe a lot of this is emotional 
and psychological so if we practice feeling good   then we can make it a big deal we can set a goal 
I want to feel better so we pick some good books   uplifting books whatever they are to you and you 
start practicing mindfulness and paying attention   more to the good things in life than the stressful 
things in life and what can happen there is your   mind can shift very very quickly I bet you that 
if you're feeling really tired and somebody calls   and says you just won a million dollars then I 
think you'd perk up for a little bit so when we   have something to look forward to we feel good 
about life when we have joy and a purpose then   we also have more energy now because all these 
issues are super common and they're becoming more   common one of the most common prescriptions is 
for antidepressants a form of Psych medication and   if you want a more natural verb version of that 
there's a whole food product called mintran and   we find this in the office when people have some 
need of brain support and anxiety issues or mood   issues then this can help in most cases but with 
all that said you don't want to catch it early   and now you're thinking have I gone completely 
crazy no catching it early is better than   catching it late but even better is not to 
have to catch it because you never get it   at all that's called prevention now in medical 
circles very often they confuse the two terms   they think that prevention is the same thing 
as early detection but it's not early detection   means you already have it prevention means you 
do something to never get it and that's why I   have all these videos on this channel to explain 
how that works and that's also why I created the   blood work course that I mentioned because if you 
start understanding the body well enough and you   get that blood work every year anyway but if 
you understand what it means really well now   you can start reading between the lines you 
can understand your body and you catch things   so early that they never become a problem you 
see when the this markers start slipping just   a little bit out of control and you understand 
how they relate to each other now you really   know what's going on and you can take charge 
make some changes for the right reasons in the   right way.

And now. Go watch that video to learn 
about some other important signs, and if you want   to master health by understanding how the body
