283. High Circulating Insulin And Alzheimer’s

Transcript Of Today's Episode

Announcer: You're listening to The Doctor is In Podcast brought to you by Martinclinic.com. The only episode, the doctor share a lot of information. As awesome as the info maybe it is not intended to diagnose, cure, treat, or prevent any disease. It's strictly for informational purposes.

Dr. Martin: Well, good morning everyone. Something that was in the New York Times this week, probably again, most of the time you won't see it. These headlines, [00:00:30] I'm telling you, I got so many that in the last couple of weeks especially, and they're all so relevant to what we're talking about on a daily basis. Let me get going. I got to read you this headline. This is from the New York Times and it says this. Okay, another Alzheimer's drug fails and part of the headline is, okay, in terms of general medication for Alzheimer's, here's a quote from [00:01:00] a big pharmaceutical representative. We don't have anything promising right now. Alzheimer's, number three on the hit parade of how North Americans, number one in the United Kingdom, how people die. It's taken over cancer. It's taken over cardiovascular disease, in the United Kingdom and in North America. It's just underneath heart disease and cancer as the [00:01:30] third reason people will die in North America is Alzheimer's.

Dr. Martin: And what is Big Pharma say, Big Pharma, New York Times, not me, not Dr. Martin. I didn't say this. The New York Times said and they said another drug fails for Alzheimer's and there's nothing promising in medication. In spite of all that you can imagine how much money [00:02:00] Big Pharma is spending on trying to find the cure to Alzheimer's or at least a treatment for Alzheimer's. Here's the quote. There is nothing even promising on the horizon for Alzheimer's. A scourge in our society today, but guys you know this, you know this.

Dr. Martin: It's never going to be a drug because Alzheimer's [00:02:30] coined type 3 diabetes is never going to be a drug that's going to fix that problem. It won't be. I'm predicting it now because it's part of metabolic syndrome. It's part of a syndrome that is caused by high circulating insulin, creating inflammation in the brain, and I've explained this to you so many times but I'm going to do it [00:03:00] again this morning.

Dr. Martin: It's not going to be in a person taking a pill. It's going to be in a lifestyle change for people and if they don't get this, this scourge, you guys know, I talked about this on a headline last week, that the World Health Organization says, this blew me away, that the cost of chronic disease, which includes Alzheimer's, [00:03:30] which includes cancer, which includes heart disease and stroke, which includes diabetes, which includes auto immune disease, is going to cost the world economy $47 trillion in less than 10 years from now. And it's not going to be a drug that's going to fix any of that. Big Pharma, and I understand why they do what they do, I get it. [00:04:00] Of course, they want to be in on Alzheimer's. It's a scourge in our society today. Of course they're looking, I mean guys, that's what they do. They're pharmaceutical.

Dr. Martin: They're looking for a drug. It's not a drug. It's in our lifestyle. It's in our food. It's on our plate. It's on our plate and 70% listen to another headline that came out last week. 70% [00:04:30] of Americans take prescription drugs, 70% what is the world come to? 70% of Americans, and I'm sure it's the same in Canada. Well, listen to this and then I'll get into Alzheimer's a little bit more. Another headline this week, headlines Statins. What is Statins? Cholesterol lowering medication? [00:05:00] Statins hysteria. Almost half of the people in the US over 60%, over 50% listen to what I'm going to say are on Statins drugs. Over 50% of the population that is over 50, 60 are on Statins drugs, Lipitor, Crestor, , Zocor. Lipitor, the number one selling drug of all time is a cholesterol lowering medication. [00:05:30] Guys, it doesn't work because it's looking for love in all the wrong places.

Dr. Martin: Cholesterol is not the bad guy. As a matter of fact, think with me for a minute. Alzheimer's is shrinking of the brain. One of the primary causes is sugar. I'll come back to that. Cholesterol lowering medication is trying to get rid of your cholesterol. [00:06:00] It's shrinking your brain. Can you imagine a medication that's aimed at your cholesterol is one of the contributing factors in Alzheimer's? It's shrinking, yet you need cholesterol. If someone calls you fat head, take it as a compliment. You want fat up here. Fat's not the problem. Sugar's the problem. They're looking for love in all the wrong places. [00:06:30] They're not looking at the right thing. They're looking at amyloid plaque for Alzheimer's. Okay. I learned years and years and years ago. What are they looking for? Because they see something consistent in Alzheimer's. It's amyloid plaque, but why do you get amyloid plaque?

Dr. Martin: Why does the micro circulation in your brain deteriorate? Amyloid plaque. [00:07:00] Why? Sugar, sugar. Sugar. It's not fat. It sugar. Oh, Dr. Martin, I don't have too much butter or I don't have coconut oil or coconut oil can be good for me. Look at how much there is in it? Yes, it is good for you. It's good for your brain. Butter's good for your brain. So is cheese, eggs, meat and cheese [00:07:30] you want to fix? Because guys, that's what I'm doing with the recent, what am I aiming at? Changing metabolic syndrome. What's metabolic syndrome? You don't have enough good cholesterol. You don't have enough HDL and you got bad fats in your blood, but they're not caused by fats. They're called triglycerides. You got to get your triglycerides down and your good cholesterol up. [00:08:00] Triglycerides are formed in the liver when you're eating carbohydrates, sugars, try three glycerides, three sugars make a fat ball.

Dr. Martin: I'm telling you, they're looking to, what are they looking at? The only medication that will take down your triglycerides is high DHA oil. It's a fat. [00:08:30] It's an Omega 3. That's why I've talked to you several weeks ago about a new drug that's not even a drug. It's called Vascepa. It's crazy expensive and all it is it's a pharmaceutical grade, Omega 3, high DHA oil. You ever hear of that before? Where's your highest DHA guys? What food is the highest DHA founded? Somebody give me an answer.

Dr. Martin: [00:09:00] Okay. What is your ideal triglycerides total for women? Again, try and get it below one. Try and get it below one. It's steak high DSA. DHA is in steak Man. Fish is good. I have my fish capsules every day, man. I do. I take high DHA oil. I got Vascepa in my cupboard. High DHA oil, lowers your triglycerides. But guys, all [00:09:30] I'm trying to create attention to what you already know.

Dr. Martin: You already know this, but now I'm reinforcing it. Okay, beep, beep, beep eggs, meat and cheese and fish. Of course fishes in age, meat and cheese. Okay, but eggs, meat and cheese. What it does is it fixes metabolic syndrome, which metabolic syndrome? High triglycerides, [00:10:00] low good cholesterol, HDL, high blood pressure, belly fat, fatty liver, nonalcoholic fatty liver and elevated insulin.

Dr. Martin: Maybe sugars a little bit elevated, but I don't wait for sugars to be elevated. I'm a big guy on getting your insulin down because if I fix your insulin, remember what I was going to say? I don't know, [00:10:30] I might name my new book after that. I haven't named it yet. Eggs, meat and cheese. Maybe I'm going to name it that I don't know yet. Give me some ideas what I name my new book. But here's what I'm saying. Save your pancreas, save your life.

Dr. Martin: Somebody why don't you gave me that, and I wrote it down. Save your pancreas, save your life, even Alzheimer's. Alzheimer's is not genetic. My dad had [00:11:00] Alzheimer's. My mother had Alzheimer's. My grandmother had Alzheimer's. Yeah, okay, I get it. Genetics, yes, but that's what they're looking at. They're looking for drugs. Genetics is a small thing. It's less than 5%, you can override your genetics, with good food, [00:11:30] and vitamin E, exercise. You guys know I have my own alphabet for vitamins, right? Vitamin C, coffee, vitamin W water, vitamin S. You know what vitamin S is? Steak. It's the most important vitamin.

Dr. Martin: Okay guys, isn't it incredible? Think about it. 70% of Americans, it's the same in Canada. [00:12:00] Come on. 70% of Americans are on prescription medications. Now is Dr. Martin against prescription medications? No, I'm not against it. You need a drug. Take a drug. I'm not telling you not to take drugs, so don't come after me. What I'm telling you is that is a crazy number. 70%, half the population over [00:12:30] 60 statistics that came out just this week that your Dr. Martin always looks for. Okay, I saved these things for you guys because you won't hear it in the media. New York Times came up with the story about Alzheimer's, but I bet you didn't read it, right? I bet you didn't read that anywhere unless you got in the back pages of the New York Times. But I'm [00:13:00] on the lookout for you.

Dr. Martin: Okay? And my wife says, I only look for good studies, especially when it comes to coffee. Well, you're right, because I love coffee and too bad, so sad. You're never going to hear one thing negative come out to my multiple coffee. Okay? So don't wait around. It's not going to happen. But you must remember in the days of the 1980s in the 1970s when they said coffee was no good for you [00:13:30] and that coffee was acidic and don't drink coffee and get off that a lot of gurus even today will tell you, you want to do a detox and whatever. Get off the coffee, nonsense. Absolute patent nonsense. Okay, so the key is metabolic syndrome. Okay, I want to read you another thing. Okay, here's another study that came out this week. Okay? And it's talking [00:14:00] about obesity. Now listen guys, follow me on this for a second.

Dr. Martin: Okay. But what is the best fish oil in Canada? Dr Martin's high DHA oil. It's Vascepa, which they are coming out now with a drug approved by Health Canada approved by the FDA, comes out of Ireland. It's a fish oil, but a very, very specific one. And [00:14:30] they charge $380 US a month to be on it. But I if you were to get a prescription, let's say you went to your doctor and you have a drug plan. There's one medication I would tell you if you can get a drug plan to cover it, take Vascepa because it's just fish oil on steroids like [00:15:00] high DHA. Okay. Okay.

Dr. Martin: I have it. I took it this morning. My high DHA oil. It's good for your heart. It's good especially to protect your brain, proven, proven and it lowers your triglycerides, but you can lower your triglycerides. Do the reset for four weeks. I had a guy yesterday, I got his blood work. It's going to be part of my new book. In December, [00:15:30] 2019 he did his blood work and his triglycerides were 5. I can't remember, 5.5 or 5.5 that is a heart attack waiting to happen. A stroke waiting to happen. One of the highest numbers I've ever seen in triglycerides. Five something in the United States, 550 or whatever it was. Listen to this. [00:16:00] Four weeks of the reset. February 10th I got his blood work from February 10th his triglycerides were down to 1.5 something, 150 from 500 and something. In Canada, we five point but in United States is 500 and something.

Dr. Martin: Couldn't you believe it? In four weeks of [00:16:30] doing the reset eggs, meat, and cheese, it fixes metabolic syndrome. Why does it do that? Because it cleans your liver out and now you're not going to be producing triglycerides. Triglycerides are from carbohydrates, crappy carbs and sugars. Your liver is a suitcase. When the suitcase is full, it empties out that fat into your bloodstream as triglycerides plus the HDL [00:17:00] goes up. What is HDL? Good cholesterol. So I know guys I get every day, you send me your blood work, okay, I get it. You send me your blood work, I'm happy to look at it.

Dr. Martin: Doc, my doctor wants me to put me on cholesterol medication. Well, I'm only looking at two numbers. I want to know what your triglycerides are and I want to know what your HDL is. All the other stuff, total cholesterol, LDL and blah, blah, [00:17:30] blah. I don't care. It doesn't register with me guys. Because it doesn't mean anything. In biochemistry who cares what your LDL is? It don't matter. The only thing that cholesterol lowering medication affects is your LDL, but it don't matter.

Dr. Martin: So you have low LDL. What does that do for you? Nothing. You're decreasing your fat, you're getting rid of cholesterol. Your body don't even trust you to make enough cholesterol. [00:18:00] 15% comes from food and 85% comes out of your liver. Why is that? And you're not going to produce enough good cholesterol if your liver is all gummed up with glycogen stored fat from sugars. You get it, doc, you're so simple. Somebody said this to me yesterday, doc, you're so simplistic. Hey, I'm a simple guy. I'm a simple guy. Why complicate stuff? Medicine [00:18:30] is complicated because medicine wanted it to be complicated. That's why everything is in Latin.

Dr. Martin: I hated Latin in high school. We were the only high school in my hometown that taught Latin because I was taught by the nuns and they said I needed Latin to get into any kind of medical school or health school or whatever. I didn't need it at all because you still got to memorize those names anyway, whether you know [00:19:00] Latin or not. How about your quadriceps long Gorham, what does that mean? Who cares? Right? So all I'm telling you guys, all I'm telling you it's not that complicated. This is the stuff you can control with your food. This is this stuff. Do you stop drinking coffee after a certain time? Well, I switched to defac at night because when you turn my age, you better not have a straight [00:19:30] up coffee. Some people get away with it. I used to tease my next door neighbor because I can have a coffee five minutes before I go to bed. I said, oh yeah, wait until you hit 50.

Dr. Martin: And I used to be able to drink coffee right before going to bed too, I think like the day I hit my 50th birthday and then dunk, I was up all night. Then I realized I needed a decap and decaf is good for you [00:20:00] get a Swiss water decaffeinated coffee. Swiss water means it's just naturally the caffeine has been taken out of it in a natural process of water filtering process.

Dr. Martin: Okay. You can look for that. Okay. So I know my husband's cardiologist says he needs to be on cholesterol medication because of an artificial bowel. I'm not going to argue with the cardiologist. Okay. I'm not going to argue, no, because I will [00:20:30] get into trouble. I'm speaking in generalities. Okay. In generalities because every individually, like I told you, I'm not telling you not to take it, I'm just giving you the truth.

Dr. Martin: And I'm telling you one of the biggest links to Alzheimer's is sugar. 100% because they call it type 3 diabetes and a low fat diet. And when you're a low fat diet, which is absolute stupidity, [00:21:00] and when you're taking a cholesterol lowering medication, you are on the low fat pill because it take it out your cholesterol out of your body. Good, bad and ugly. Yeah. So that's why guys. Guys I didn't just pick eggs, meat and cheese for no reason. No, there was a reason to my madness. Doc, what do you mean, I can't have any vegetables? [00:21:30] No, none. Not for four weeks. Not if you want to get your triglycerides down. I don't want no carbs. Zero, nada. Doc, what if I'm a vegetarian or vegan? Well, the same for you, you can have eggs and live on eggs if you're a vegetarian. Right. And some dairy, cheese. I think vegetarians can have eggs and cheese will do that. But if you're a vegan, you're out of luck, man.

Dr. Martin: For me, for the [00:22:00] reset. Okay. Can't do the reset. If you're a vegan, vegetarians could do it because then they could avoid the meat. I don't know why you would do that, but. When you think of the highest DHA oil man, because in the plant kingdom there is no DHA, did you know that? In the plants. I mean you can take seeds and nuts and whatever, right? Then they have Omega 3, right? [00:22:30] Like hemp seed has Omega 3 but it's not DHA and it's not EPA, right? It's AAL. Look, it doesn't mean it's bad. I didn't say that. All I'm saying is your brain doesn't need AAL. You know what it needs? It needs DHA, a little bit of EPA, but DHA is the better for you brain, for inflammation, to lower all your markers of inflammation.

Dr. Martin: So this is me see. [00:23:00] Guys, I'm just giving you science. That's science. So Alzheimer's is part of metabolic syndrome. It's a result of high levels of triglycerides, high insulin especially. And that's what's affecting your brain because, and let me just teach this to you again, because repetition, repetition, repetition.

Dr. Martin: So let's say you're a carbolic. And by the way, by the way, people who [00:23:30] are diabetic, okay? If you're a diabetic, you are 50% or more likely to have Alzheimer's. If you're a diabetic, you are 50% more likely to suffer from Alzheimer's and dementia. Did you know that? Well, what's the connection? The connection is insulin. The connection is insulin, and insulin. Here's the problem. You've been a carbolic for a quite awhile. [00:24:00] You like your sugar, you like... Oh Dr. Martin I got to have my chocolate. I got to have my cookies. I got to have my ice cream. I like it. I like to have my soul it up. Yeah, I know you do. I like to drink milk. White Pepsi, stop. Well, because guys, because you're creating an enormous amount of insulin. [00:24:30] Remember what insulin does? Insulin says to sugar that you create any carb.

Dr. Martin: Oh Dr. Martin, I've got to have pasta. If I don't have my pasta. Yeah, I know Rosie's Italian. I understand pasta, but you can't live on it because it's going to be sugar. In five second. Oh, Dr. Martin, I love my whole wheat. I got to have my toast. No you don't. Your toast is going to be sugar in five seconds. Why not have a chocolate bar? Oh, Dr. Martin, I'm going to have my cereal. If I don't have cereal in the [00:25:00] morning, I'm not going to go for a poop. If I don't get my cereal. Well, that is sugar and it's going to be more sugar in five seconds in your bloodstream, you're driving your pancreas crazy. Save your pancreas, save your life. So what does it do? What does it do? Well, though, insulin has got to be secreted at a high level to get your sugar out of your bloodstream.

Dr. Martin: Well, bump, get out, get out, get out, get out, go into the parking lot. Hey, sugar out of the blood. I'm parking [00:25:30] you in the liver or I'm going to make more fat cells. And if you don't have enough muscle, I got to make more fat cells. See, obesity is not the problem. Obesity is the result, but let's just continue here for a second. So insulin, insulin, insulin, kids. Let me read you something else that it has an effect. Let me tell you this. Where did I read this? Oh yeah, another headline. I'll make it another one separate, but it just going to tell you about it. [00:26:00] Every year, Coke, listen to this. Coke and McDonald's spends $1.8 billion marketing junk food and drinks to kids as young as two years old, 1.8 billion. McDonald's, Coke. We didn't even talk about Pepsi. They market, market, market, sugar, sugar, sugar, sugar, sugar, sugar, right?

Dr. Martin: Oh, and then they'll say, oh, in [00:26:30] moderation. But listen, now you're elevating. Now, you're elevating your insulin. It's called high circulating insulin or insulin resistance, you've got too much insulin all the time. The problem specifically for the brain is this. Your brain has headquarters. It needs fuel. So if you give it sugar, it'll say, come here, sugar. Come here, come here, come here, come up here. Come [00:27:00] up to headquarters. 20% of all your fuel is in your brain. So whenever you eat, your brain goes, hey, here first the rest of the body after. So when you have sugar, when you drink milk, when you have a muffin, when you have a Big Al, when you have pasta, when you have pizza, when you have yogurt, when you have all those sugary things, your brain goes, come here. [00:27:30] I need you first.

Dr. Martin: So it takes 20% of your fuel. Your brain is small, it's smaller. It's a little, your brain's not that big, but it's headquarter. So it takes that fuel first. But if you're a carbolic, very shortly after your brain, okay, what does insulin do? It goes into the brain. It goes into your [00:28:00] blood vessels and says, sugar, get out. You can't stay in the blood vessels. Get out. I got store you, I've got to put you in the parking lot at Costco, your liver. I got to get you out of there because insulin is on your side, guys. It doesn't allow sugar to stay in the bloodstream because sugar is so toxic. It destroys your blood vessels.

Dr. Martin: So your body, which is fearfully [00:28:30] and wonderfully made your body is unbelievable. It'll let you get away with stuff even for quite a while because your body is unbelievable. Like getting sugar out of the bloodstream. It won't let it stay there. The problem is in the brains specifically when you have too much insulin after a while, your blood brain barrier, okay, BBB, [00:29:00] blood brain barrier. You can't see it. It's invisible. It's a guard. It's made up a good friendly bacteria by the way.

Dr. Martin: You know what happens? They don't let insulin come across anymore, so insulin can't take the sugar you're eating out of your brain anymore. Your brain gets saturated by sugar and sugar destroys your hippocampus. Now guys, [00:29:30] listen, you got two parts of your brain. Hippocampus, think of the word campus. You'll never forget this. And hypothalamus, remember Latin, complicated for nothing. Hippocampus memory center in your brain. Hypothalamus controls all your hormones, your estrogen, your progesterone, your adrenal glands, [00:30:00] your thyroid, your insulin. I mean headquarters' controls that by your hypothalamus.

Dr. Martin: Okay, so you got to, so what happens to the hippocampus, campus, university campus, college campus, your brain, the part of your brain where your memory is, it gets saturated by sugar because insulin can't get in there anymore to take the sugar out [00:30:30] and it destroys the cells of your hippocampus, your memory center.

Dr. Martin: That's why diabetics are 50% more likely to have Alzheimer's. That's why we have a new disease. Go into my medical books in the 1970s, look up Alzheimer's. It's not even in there. So guys, you get it. You get it. See where I'm coming from? [00:31:00] Okay guys, you get it. You get it. You guys are wonderful. You're wonderful. I mean it. You guys are smarter than the average bear. Okay? You guys know more about nutrition than 99% of the rest of the population, including your doctor. Hey, to be negative. You know I'm a positive guy, but it's true. It's true guys.

Dr. Martin: Okay, so send in your questions. [00:31:30] If you're not part of the Martin Clinic Facebook private group, I feel sorry for you. Join up, some wonderful announcements coming and so guys, stay tuned. Love you. Send this to your friends. You guys are the greatest. You guys are superstars and I love you dearly. Okay. Talk to you soon.
