Keto Diet HACK! The trick I use to get and STAY in Ketosis This boils down to: - Bulletproof Coffee in the AM (For additional fat add more Grass-fed Butter + Heavy Cream) - Brain Octane Oil 2x daily - 1Tbs per serving *Recommended at noon and night - Use Keto Strips to gauge ketone levels (about 70-80% accuracy) Get the essentials below... Bulletproof Coffee (5lb) - http://bit.ly/1WRxBdm Brain Octane Oil (32oz) - http://bit.ly/2divjEM Keto Strips (100 strips) - http://amzn.to/1rxulbI This hack is a MASSIVE leg up when starting and working to stay in ketosis. The Ketogenic Diet can be intimidating to a lot of folks and understandably so. The amount of fat you need to take in is quite substantial. This can be even tougher for those adverse to taking in dairy and may want to retain a somewhat or even completely vegan lifestyle. The beauty of this hack is that it is exceptional at ensuring you get a steady baseline - a foundation of healthy fats offering the most in the way of cognitive benefit. This will elevate your health while making you feel great. A no brainer, right? It wasn't difficult for me to discover this hack. I've been drinking Bulletproof Coffee for more than a year now. So I was already beginning many of my mornings in a minor state of ketosis - substantial fat intake with a lack of carbs in a substantial window of time. If you really want to ease into this hack begin with BPC (Bulletproof Coffee) for a week and then begin folding in the Brain Octane Oil. Transition at a level of comfort that works for you and of course consult your physician before making any changes to your diet or lifestyle. This advice is in no way a medical/clinical recommendation. Check out my channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/TJohnstonPo...

What Are The Dangers Of The Ketosis Diet?

In the late 1990s and early 2000s, when the "Atkins" and low carb dieting thing was just coming on in a big way, there was a terrific number of idiotic claims made about the dangers of it -- many of them confusing (as the questioner points out) diabetic ketoacidosis, a serious condition, with voluntary nutritional ketosis, even though there is no relation whatever. But, leaving all that aside, some caution is in order. The diet seems to stress the adrenals. This has been noted anecdotally by many people who've followed the diet. It was also noted by Dr Wolfgang Lutz, one of the early pioneers of the diet, who personally practiced the diet for 40-odd years, as well as advocated the diet to thousands of his patients. He noted in his book on the subject ("Life Without Bread" was the title, though it was published later I believe under a different title) that some patients would suffer mild autoimmune reactions that required small doses of corticosteroids to control. This sounds like what would happen if the adrenals are failing to produce a normal amount of steroids. You can find a lot more of a mostly-anecdotal nature by searching for "ketogenic jaminet". Paul Jaminet is a popular he Continue reading >>

    Cervical cancer has a characteristic smell due to the presence of dibutyl phtalate, and other volatile organic compounds.
    In a diagnostic test trial a Beagle dog was trained to recognize cervical cancer odor. He was able to detect and discriminate cancer and non cancer odors with a sensitivity of 96,5% [95% CI 90,51 -100] a specificity of 99,55% [95% CI 98,8 - 100] and a positive predictive value of 96,36% [95% IC 90,51 - 100].

    6 Medical Conditions That Dogs Can Sniff Out

    Fetor hepaticus , symptomatic of portal hypertension.
    Uremic fetor , symptomatic of chronic kidney disease.
    Bad breath, could be caused by not brushing, as well as “disorders in the nose , sinuses , throat , lungs , esophagus , or stomach ”. Diabetic ketoacidosis can give one a fruity/acetone smelling breath, too.

    Body odor, commonly harmless, could be caused by certain types of food, microbes on the skin, gland secretions, getting sprayed by a skunk, etc. Metabolic disorders can cause one to smell odd; people who can’t process an amino acid called phenylalanine smell musty, and those with trimethylaminuria smell fishy.
    And from a rather humourously written paper:
    Infectious diseases were known by their characteristics odors--scrofula as smelling like stale beer; typhoid, like freshly baked brown bread; rubella, like plucked feathers; and diphtheria, as "sweetish." Anosmics might be banned from medical school.

    What does Candida smell like--a "heavy sweetness"? Darier's disease in poor control--"organic"? Pseudomonal infections--"foul and biting"? And are not our patients with noninfected eczematous dermatitis distinct for lacking any peculiar odor, do they not actually smell "dry"?

    Scratch and sniff. The dynamic duo.

    There are numerous bad stinks I have come across, but the one that made me almost vomit was a patient with gastrocolic fistula. In this disease, the large intestine somehow gets connected to the stomach, so the fecal material refluxes into stomach and the patient has poo stink breath.

What is GENETICALLY MODIFIED BACTERIUM? What does GENETICALLY MODIFIED BACTERIUM mean? GENETICALLY MODIFIED BACTERIUM meaning - GENETICALLY MODIFIED BACTERIUM definition - GENETICALLY MODIFIED BACTERIUM explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6Uu... Genetically modified bacteria were the first organisms to be modified in the laboratory, due to their simple genetics. These organisms are now used for several purposes, and are particularly important in producing large amounts of pure human proteins for use in medicine. The first example of this occurred in 1978 when Herbert Boyer, working at a University of California laboratory, took a version of the human insulin gene and inserted into the bacterium Escherichia coli to produce synthetic "human" insulin. Four years later, it was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The drug industry has made use of this discovery to produce medication for diabetes. Similar bacteria have been used to produce clotting factors to treat haemophilia, and human growth hormone to treat various forms of dwarfism. These recombinant proteins are safer than the products they replaced. Prior to recombinant protein products, several treatments were derived from cadavers or other donated body fluids and could transmit diseases. Indeed, transfusion of blood products had previously led to unintentional infection of haemophiliacs with HIV or hepatitis C; similarly, treatment with human growth hormone derived from cadaver pituitary glands may have led to outbreaks of Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease. Genetically modified bacteria can serve various purposes beyond producing medicinal compounds. For instance, bacteria which generally cause tooth decay have been engineered to no longer produce tooth-corroding lactic acid. These transgenic bacteria, if allowed to colonize a person's mouth, could perhaps reduce the formation of cavities. Transgenic microbes have also been used in recent research to kill or hinder tumors, and to fight Crohn's disease. Genetically modified bacteria are also used in some soils to facilitate crop growth, and can also produce chemicals toxic to crop pests. GM bacteria have also been developed to leach copper from ore, clean up mercury pollution and detect arsenic in drinking water.

Would You Eat Food That Was Genetically Modified?

Not only do I eat GMOs, I willingly inject myself with GMOs 5–8 times a day! It is my secret to a long life. “What?” I can hear your gasping disbelief from here. “Why would you do something so harmful to yourself? Don't you realize how BAD GMOS are?” I have Type 1 diabetes. For those of you who don't know, it is an autoimmune disease that causes the islet cells of the pancreas (they are responsible for producing insulin) to die off. When your body cannot produce its own insulin, you must inject man made insulin several times a day. If you don't, your blood glucose levels will rise to dangerous levels and your blood chemistry goes wonky (scientific medical term). Without insulin, your blood begins burning fat and muscle for fuel instead of carbs. The acidic byproduct is called ketones. You may have heard of low-carb diets that suggest you check your urine for ketones and applaud you if you manage to get a pink square on the ketone strip. However, with Type 1, that pink square is terrifying. It means you are going into ketoacidosis, which is a life threatening emergency. Without treatment, you will die. Quickly. If you have Type 1 diabetes (only loosely related to Type 2 di Continue reading >>

    (edit: it's worth pointing out that "Ketosis " on it's own is not a bad thing, but Diabetic ketoacidosis is. I assume this is the point of the question)
    Diabetic Ketoacidosis comes from High (hyper) Blood Sugar not Low (Hypo). They could happen together, if you had high blood sugar for too long, the Ketoacidosis happened then you over treated the high and it went low. In this case you'd have 2 separate problems. Hypoglaycemia and Ketoacidosis. Low blood sugar will make you pass out and go into a coma eventually. Ketoacidosis is very painful and horrible to be part of. But I wouldn't say they increase each others danger very much.

Subscribe for more Body Mind Empowerment content: https://goo.gl/TSDCuv Keto and Stress are two things that dont match very well together. In fact, being stressed out is probably ruining your ketogenic diet and stalling all your attempts of getting into ketosis. Periodic bouts of stress are actually beneficial and even needed. The problem is that in our modern world, were exposed to too many stressors too frequently. When cortisol is elevated, glucose is released into the bloodstream. What follows are higher levels of insulin as well. As blood glucose goes up, ketones go down and vice versa. Raising insulin will stop fat burning and keto-adaptation for the coming few hours, potentially even days. This video explains to you why this is so and what you can do to prevent it.

Why Dka & Nutritional Ketosis Are Not The Same

There’s a very common misconception and general misunderstanding around ketones. Specifically, the misunderstandings lie in the areas of: ketones that are produced in low-carb diets of generally less than 50 grams of carbs per day, which is low enough to put a person in a state of “nutritional ketosis” ketones that are produced when a diabetic is in a state of “diabetic ketoacidosis” (DKA) and lastly, there are “starvation ketones” and “illness-induced ketones” The fact is they are very different. DKA is a dangerous state of ketosis that can easily land a diabetic in the hospital and is life-threatening. Meanwhile, “nutritional ketosis” is the result of a nutritional approach that both non-diabetics and diabetics can safely achieve through low-carb nutrition. Diabetic Ketoacidosis vs. Nutritional Ketosis Ryan Attar (soon to be Ryan Attar, ND) helps explain the science and actual human physiology behind these different types of ketone production. Ryan is currently studying to become a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine in Connecticut and also pursuing a Masters Degree in Human Nutrition. He has interned under the supervision of the very well-known diabetes doc, Dr Continue reading >>
