  1. Dr. Dean Ornish had suffered through Nervous breakdown in his teenage. He was doing nothing that just staying in home. Then he learned som Yoga from his sister n within 15 days he felt so fresh that he gave the exam and became a doctor then after.


    "More recently, scientists reported that cannabidiol, one of the chemicals found in marijuana, slows growth of breast cancer cells growing in laboratory dishes. However, this substance has not been tested in humans or even in animals that have cancer yet. Cannabidiol levels in marijuana are low, so any benefit from this compound would require use of a purified and concentrated form."

    Proven in laboratory dishes but not willing to test on humans or animals!
    A purified and concentrated form is RICK SIMPSON'S CANCER CURE HEMP OIL!!

  4. THC (Rick Simpson's Cancer Cure Hemp Oil) achieves this wizardry by binding to protein receptors on a cancerous cell's surface. Once attached the THC induces the cell to make a fatty substance called ceramide, which prompts the cell to start devouring itself. "We see programmed cell death" Velasco says. What's more, noncancerous cells don't make ceramide when they come into contact with THC. The healthy cells don't die.

  5. @pdema030 where does he say "only for those with an understanding of god"? he's talking about how one's lifestyle, attitudes and emotions can affect one's health.

  6. Sabrina, a dallas based yoga professional, is a genius!!! She has helped hundreds of her students improve their lives.

  7. @pdema030 you are god, and all that is, ying and yang etc…because nothing is separated from you. you don`t understand science, only what you get at a supercial level or what is convenient for your curent beliefs:) Because being atheist is fundamanelist belief system, has nothing to do with science, the scientifc procesees to be exact etc. You may do well enough with a fundamentalist belief system, based on leaps of faits..indeed, but it`s better with progressive understanding of the esence.

  8. @ChaosKids512

    That comment was not entirely serious and made over two years ago. I am well and truly "over it."

  9. @nexenta

    Steve Jobs also had massive heavy metal and industrial chemical exposure over the course of two decades while involved in/around the manufacturing process of his hardware devices. You are misinformed, and to blame diet solely is very foolish.

  10. That's why the Incas lived off of potatoes and quinoa. Teff is grown in the high plateaus of Ethiopia and Eritrea. Rice grows very well in all of East Asia and where it couldn't be grown, buckwheat can (Japanese north island). Trade can pick up any slack and growing crops is more land efficient than feeding your food to your food.

  11. The Ornish Diet was admittedly not followed by most of the participants in Stanford's study. They found it "too vegetarian" and consumed about 3 times as much fat as Ornish recommends. Those who actually did follow it to a tee lost on the order of 50 pounds. The real takeaway from this study is that fat people will probably have an easier time doing low carb than doing low fat plant-based.

  12. Grains are un-needed and make the body acidic. First quit grains, and eat lots of fats and oils. Plenty of water and the kidneys are fine.

  13. Fully saturated fat is structurally sound and critical, plenty can be eaten. 85 year old strapping strong farmers in England eat deep fried lard for dinner. (noted in one of James Heriot's books). Fats and oils are endlessly good for us. It's the elevated insulin and acidity from grains is the big problem. (Of course, no liquid sugar toxins (called 'pop') in your diet)

  14. Just listen to your body it is the best doctor and advisor of what it needs. Eat what you crave and what makes you feel good. There's no point in eating a salad if you are still starving for some protein and there is no point in eating protein when you feel like eating a salad.

  15. Hello there, have you heard about "Belly Fat Quencher"? Just have a look at their website: BellyFatQuencher.com There you will discover an important free video by a well-known physician revealing the right way to reduce weight. It helped Samuel to reduce his belly fat. It might help you too.

  16. My classmates laughed when I told them I would burn up fat with "Blazing Fat Loss", but then I showed them the results. Go google "Blazing Fat Loss" to see their reaction. (You should see their shock!)

  17. There are also people who smoke 2 packs a day and don't get lung cancer. It doesn't mean that smoking isn't a problem. Refuting clinical research studies to anecdotes is not an apples to apples comparison

  18. Please help. Half of my thyroid was crushed. The doc wants to cut half of it out but I was wondering if it could heal… naturally somehow. Crushed side is swollen to large grape size. T4 is high. T3 normal. TSH low 0.01

  19. Hello, have you come across " BellyFATtack "? Just have a look on Google. On there you will find a beneficial free video presentation by a recognised medical doctor revealing the way to get rid of excess weight. It made it possible for Bianca to get rid of her abdominal fat. Perhaps it will work for you also…

  20. Oh I get it now! So eating fat doesn't produce fat or lipemia in the blood, but only sugars do! Thanks, that makes sense! And who the fuck are you calling a nigga, you racist fucking piece of shit? Fuck yourself bitch.

  21. there was a bbc documentary that a high protein moderate carb and low fat meal can make one feel full longest.

  22. Hey there, have you heard of BellyFATtack yet? Simply search on Google. There you will discover a good free video by a recognized qualified health practitioner revealing the way to burn unwanted fat. It made it possible for Samuel to lose his abdominal fat. I will probably give it a try. I hope it will work for you also.

  23. Ornish looks unhealthy as fuck.. he might have cleaner pipes but I'm not convinced that this is a diet where human beings actually thrive. We didn't evolve closely watching our fat intake, like a bunch of old women.

    On the other side of the coin, people who eat healthy nutritous food and include healthy dietary fats (low PUFA, no trans or man made shite) have skin that radiates. Hmmmmmmmm. Yes, Ornish must be healthier.

  24. Look up "Sweden, Fat" in Google news.  Sweden has made High Fat, Low Carb official government health advice.  God Bless Sweden.  That took a lot of guts.  Ornish's diet study was more full of holes than Swiss Cheese.  Peer reviewed?  More like approved by the priesthood.  Worthless.  He's on the payroll of Pepsi and Macdonalds.  He calls crackers whole foods, gives a shrug to angel food cake, and allows sugar on his diet.  Dean Ornish, have you no sense of decency?

  25. He is not obese. He talks fast because he has a 40 minute presentation and about 17 minutes to present it. Read the China Study by Dr. T. Colin Campbell.

  26. To say at 8:25 that weight gain is all about calories in and calories out shows me he knows nothing useful about diet.  He's stuck in the 20th century.

  27. Before humanity was wearing clothes we lived in an environment filled with fruits and vegetables that were more delicious then anything we have in our current grocery stores. The piles of s*** being subsidized and fed you are sick livestock and of course average consumers in the form of processed garbage are the cause of this epidemic. There are few healthy fats. Most of wich are obtained in plant foods. Its about nutrition not about brotien sales. No one gets fats from fruits and veg. They get fat from processing shir food

  28. It all works.  I had angina, could barely walk my dog.  I had lower back pain, knee pain, memory problems, edema, fat below the skin, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, border line glucose, ED and I did not lead a sedentary lifestyle (endurance athlete, national class) but when I hit my late 40's, the house of cards started crashing in on me.  I saw "Forks over Knives" movie and tried vegan diet.  After just 4 months, angina symptoms disappeared.  After 1 year all my issues disappeared.  Then I went back to an omnivore diet.  Gained a ton of weight, symptoms started returning, freaked me out.  Switched back, never going back.  Back in good health, lost the weight, now walking and hiking 10+ miles per day, excellent muscle tone.  Feel great.  Firm believer.  It works.  Don't live to eat, eat to live.

  29. Ornish makes some good points, but he is wrong about meat and saturated fat.  How can humans be made sick by meat and fat, when humans have been living on it for over 2 million years, and all hunter gathers want to eat as much meat as they can?  My Dad cured his Type I diabetes on essentially an Atkins diet.

  30. for a while now i've been pushing the masai diet.  the masai are a kenyan tribe that only live on food from cattle, milk, beef, and blood.  I can't get blood here in the states, so it's only milk and beef for me.  The masai have an important saying, "If a man eats meat and drinks milk on the same day, he is a glutton."  Hence each day I have to choose whether it shall be a milk day or a beef day.  I myself always choose milk, so essentially i've been living on fluid milk products for the last six years.  It has been fantastic for my health, I'm six feet, one inch, the last time I weighed I was 154 pounds, I do superbly on my annual physical.  I think it's good for mental health as well because milk tastes so good and it's good to know when you drink it you're doing something healthy for yourself.  I'm pushing doctors to test the fluid-milk-products diet to see if it might help with various diseases, including biggies like cancer and AIDS.

  31. In reading the comments while Ornish was talking I enjoyed seeing all the different responses to this talk.  I enjoyed his talk immensely and I too have gone to a different type of diet after years of trying to control my weight through normal diet pills and exercise.  Recently, I've come to the conclusion that the only way I will ever feel comfortable in my own skin is through more vigorous training and while I agree with those meat eaters out there that say we were meant to eat it I don't believe we were meant to eat the steroid injected, GMO and unnaturally raised animals and vegetables that are available to the average consumer.

  32. It must be very tough when everything you have been preaching for decades has been 100% discredited. Low-fat diets, promoted by Ornish since the 1980's, is what has destroyed our health.

  33. I know I have high tri's. Omega 3 fatty acids is one way for me to get healthier. Now that I have attained my Jenny Craig Weight I am going to increase vegtables, fish in my diet. Buying Omega 3's on line appears to be the cheapest way to get them. I know I should just fish but there is a time factor.

  34. Whether you agree fully with Ornish or not on dietary details the man comes from a heartfelt/compassionate & humorous place.

  35. This isn't complicated.  Keep protein and healthy fats high.  Eliminate processed foods, especially processed and refined carbohydrates altogether.  If it comes in a wrapper or box, don't eat it.  Minimize wheat, rye, grains, oats, and barley.  Carbohydrates should come from fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, and dark leafy greens.  These also contain the vitamins and minerals which are essential.  Eat smaller meals but eat more frequently.  If you need supplements, get them from whole food sourced supplements from reputable companies.  The body requires essential amino acids (proteins) and essential fats that it must acquire from outside, that it cannot produce on its own.

  36. Jesus wept! What a great video – life changing . Gonna give it a go, maybe I'll end up being  able to speak like Dean – Never saw him take more than two breaths,  must be great for the lungs as well as the heart !! Tim

  37. In my understanding the health is being compromised when both fats and carbohydrates are consumed together on a dayly basis. Acording our metabolic states that uses ketones or glucose for energy it must be understood that body can choose one at a time. So if one eats low fat high carb diet chooses the glucose side and if one chooses high fat low carb diet chooses ketone side. One should not mix these two metabolic states or he will get sick. Am i wrong?

  38. The people commenting that he's incorrect about eating fat must not have fully watched the video. He says you should eat healthy fats, and not unhealthy fats. Pretty obvious. Healthy e.g. nuts, avocados, omega 3. Unhealthy e.g. saturated fat, red meat, etc.

  39. This is VERY bad science mixed with new age rhetoric. The TYPE of fat is very VERY important and the carbohydrates mentioned should NOT include grains. He needs to read the research from Steve Phinney, Darren Schmidt and Paul Witerton Who will refute just about everything that was said in this misleading Ted talk.

  40. Smart, brilliant man, but my God he talks fast.   Well, At least his presentation is not peppered with "uh's".  Obviously, no brain fog here.

  41. An excellent talk by a proven expert in lifestyle medicene and nutrition. "Medical science is only in its infancy, yet it has shown that our natural food is that which grows out of the ground." – 'Abdu'l-Baha, Bahá'u'lláh & the New Era

  42. Don't advise fish oil. It's better to get omega 3 from sea algae which is what the fish eat. Also fish is contaminated with Mercury, PCBs etc so better to take plant based omega 3.
    My husband died with prostate cancer so I'm spreading the plant based message whenever and wherever I can.

  43. Ich bin leider der englischen Sprache nicht mächtig und kann nur hoffen, dass die vielen wertvollen Hinweise von Dean Ornish baldmöglichst auch auf deutsche zu hören und zu lesen sind.

  44. Fish oil is not essential. Fish get their omega 3 from plants. It is difficult to be deficient in Omega 3 if eating 1-2 tablespoons of flax seed meal or chia seeds and green leafy vegetables at several meals. There is also research that suggests that those on plant based nutrition become highly efficient in their own manufacture of omega 3. Patients on fish oil are also at increased risk for bleeding, and studies now indicate they are of no benefit for heart disease patients.

  45. For the elongated omega 3 fatty acid ( EPAB & DHA ) that might be needed to be supplemented after age of 50, it is better taken by a contamination free pill right from the algae source rather than fish oil

  46. This video is the one that gave me hope that I could improve my cholesterol etc and helped me lose 100 pounds! After being on this change in eating lifestyle the Doctor suggests for a while, I no longer had blood sugar problems or cholesterol problems! It really worked! And it is so simple. It was worth exchanging bad foods for healthy ones! And I did start to feel better even after 1 week! It was a lifesaver for me! 👍

  47. The guy who first got us thinking this way. Caldwell Esselstyn was also on-board, but hadn't yet published his study.

  48. I agree with the information on smoking. I quit, yet was still craving, but I started eating wfpb and no more cravings. Amazing!

  49. Why Ornish is wrong: https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/why-almost-everything-dean-ornish-says-about-nutrition-is-wrong/

  50. He fails miserably to separate processed proteins from more natural ones. In studies with un-processed proteins, his theory falls flat.

  51. Thank you. This is helpful. How do i best convince my girlfriend to try this with me? She refuses to and hates me asking. It has caused friction with our relationship.

  52. I love it! A 30 minute presentation done in 17 minutes. 😁
    It helps to be intelligent and highly articulate!

  53. You are right, when we quit smoking and stop vices. However, when discuss the big fat meal, are you including processed foods and carbs with the fats? If so, that is a big confounding factor.
