Successful Weight Loss For Women Over 50

If you’ve just seen 1% of the
videos on this channel, you know what
we’re talking about here. With the “secret
killer,” cardiovascular inflammation, it’s
the… it’s the big deal. We’ve also talked
about how the standards committees in
medicine are still struggling on how to
make that happen.
But we’ve also talked about, you know, is
there a way that we can go ahead and
make that happen for ourselves, how do we do things.
Actually, it’s one thing to talk about
the theory of cardiovascular
inflammation, it’s another thing to
actually just find out “Do I have it?”
This is my test, one of the routine tests
that I’ve had. I’ve not had much
cardiovascular inflammation. Again, I
managed my lifestyle with a good bit of
discipline. We look at myeloperoxidase,
PLAC2… some enzymes, they’re actors in
the inflammation story. We look at
C reactive protein which is what most
docs look at when they look at at this
issue. And we look at the functional
piece: Is the intima actually leaking
protein or could it be leaking
cholesterol? Why don’t we just look at C-reactive protein like a lot of docs do?
Well, here’s a great example. This is the
value that I had two weeks before the
Louisville conference, just a couple of
months ago. And as you see here, my
C-reactive protein number was over 10.
I’ve never had that kind of number. It’s
always been below 1. Why did that happen?
I had a cold a sore throat. It was a bad
one, but yes, I had a sore throat. Now,
could that really do that? Of course, it
can. In fact, we know this… it’s been known
for a long time that C-reactive protein
especially can can react to cold, even a
flu shot.
There’s tons of studies that have been
done looking at elevation of C-reactive
protein after just a flu shot. In some studies, 2/3 of
people have elevation, just 2 days
later after a flu shot. And guess what?
Cholesterol values can go up. So
it’s not a simple easy picture. So this
can sometimes be challenging and get
into some technical issues. First of all,
it’s not just what is cardiovascular
inflammation. Can we test it for
ourselves? How do we interpret it? CHL
(Cleveland Heart Labs) and Quest just
don’t offer it direct to consumer
anymore. We’re helping… we’re getting
inflammation testing – OGGT to insulin
survey and small group interpretations –
all in the webinar. So the webinar
has a lot of value, and it’s not inherent
in the name.
About just using the term, the webinar
doesn’t imply the testing that goes
along with it. So again, don’t guess, test
if you have prediabetes. You’re very
likely to be going through cycles of
inflammation, burning up that glycocalyx.
So how do you know without getting the
screening test? Again, give us a call. We
can help or just go click on the button
on our website. It says webinar. We all
want to have clean arteries. Let’s see if
we can get back to those clean arteries
and back to that healthy glycocalyx.
Thank you very much for your interest.
Did you want to go to the intense
experience in Louisville but just didn’t
have that kind of money or time?
Take a look. We’ve got another one coming
up in Orlando, February 28th. There’s a
way to save a lot of money on it as much
as 50% off. Take a look.

  1. It's winter, and though I use Nevea etc., wear cotton gloves at night atop creamed hands, one knuckle on one finger persists in looking slightly inflamed. Is this kind of inflammation able to elevate my HSCRP number?? Otherwise, I'm healthy as a kid. (Age 66)

  2. I've become painfully aware of the limitations of the CRP test. I tested at 0.7 (very good) at the same time substantial arterial inflammation and artery calcification was occurring. In spite of rapid development of artery deposits, the microalbumin/creatinine ratio wasn't showing much of a problem either. But the Lp-PLA2 tests and the cardiac coronary artery scans were both showing a big issue. It might turn out to be that damage to the glycocalyx has been largely blocked in spite of all the arterial deposits that have formed. But that is just a guess at this point.

  3. The CAC Test is essentially an inflammation test. If your arteries are inflamed near the heart then you are probably inflamed in other areas (i.e. the most vulnerable organs)

  4. One of the most crucial biomarker tests that most doctors don't use on their patients. I wish I knew about it before my mom passed away. She could be saved long back. Being unaware of medical science and technology is a curse !

    Thank you Dr. Brewer for coming up with this video. You're actually receiving countless blessings from your supporters world over for your contribution to educate people and help us know about health in the most comprehensive yet simplistic way by letting us know the facts and research in just some minutes of span.

    I wish you do a video on kidney health and how it relates to heart health in the days to come. Thank you.

    Also, do a video on Metformin being studied for carcinogenic substances recently. Many people are on it as drug for longevity including Dr. Sinclair.

  5. C Reactive Protein is a Complement Protein of the immune system. So numerous factors that can stimulate complement release can increase C Reactive.
    Cholesterol is also not a great measure since half of people who get a heart attack have normal lipid profiles.
    This far the best lab test to help predict Rick for a heart attack – myocardial infarction – is the CT scan for cardiac calcium.

  6. Dr. Brewer, thank you for another insightful and practical video. The point you make about the variability of CRP test results is important. I wonder if there's enough grist for the mill to do a video about how to prepare for blood tests, e.g. what supplements to discontinue (and for how long) prior to blood draws. Some supplements (like nicotinic acid) may elevate liver activity (but not toxicity) and if not discontinued some time (5 days or so) prior to blood draw, may lead to an erroneous conclusion about liver health. Thank you again.
