Is Your Diet Causing Your Arthritis Or Making It Worse? Keto Dr Berry Explains.


hey this is dr. Barry let’s discuss for
a few minutes is your diet causing your joint pain your arthritis your djd your
osteoarthritis is that possible that your diet could be
causing it or making it worse or damaging your joints permanently
that’s a great question we need to talk about this so let’s dive right in there
are absolutely millions of people in the United States and other parts of the
world who suffer from severe debilitating arthritis in their joints
and arthritis is just a word that means inflammation inside the joint okay now
so many people think that they it’s from wear-and-tear they’ve warned their
joints out I’ve just I’ve worked so hard I’ve stood on my feet I’ve worn my
joints out that’s completely inaccurate that’s a myth that’s not true at all
and we’re gonna talk about this in this video now if you know someone who
suffers from arthritis or joint pain chronically please share this video with
them share it on Twitter share it on LinkedIn share it on Facebook you’re
welcome to share this video because it helps me to help so many other people
now let’s talk about this first of all let’s let’s just completely destroy this
wear and tear myth okay your joints are not like rocks they are constantly being
regenerated renewed new cells are coming old cells are dying cartilage is being
replaced all the time now many orthopedic surgeons would love
for you to believe that once your joints formed and you’re an adult that’s it
it never gets any better it just only gets worse with time because you you
wear it out right and so if you have a very physically exertional job you’re
you’re a factory worker you’ve worked a lot of menial or hard labor you feel
like oh I’ve just worked so hard I have worn my joints out your body is not like
a car the more you drive your body it doesn’t wear out okay you shouldn’t keep
your body in the garage that doesn’t work for the human body the human body
the human joints are constantly rejuvenating and repairing and renewing
if you’re feeding your body to correct diets and if you’re using your joints
appropriate okay so do not believe that wear and
tear myth that is a lie that doctors tell patients especially doctors who get
paid very well to chop out joints and put in new artificial joints not true at
all there’s absolutely zero research that backs up the wear and tear myth
that is not true whatsoever okay and I’m going to tell you about my personal
experience in my clinic with people improving their joints with diets now
let’s talk about this of course you know I recommend the ketogenic way of eating
or a low carb high healthy fat or even a carnivore diet for different people
these diets are ideal for them and I have had numerous patients at the berry
clinic some who are on the knee replacement surgery list like on the
waiting list getting ready to have a knee replaced I said you know what
before you do that please just eat keto for three months for me and I’m going to
tell you the foods to remove completely out of your diet and see if we can’t get
these joints better and many of those patients have left the surgeon waiting
they called and canceled that appointment because their joints were so
much better that they wouldn’t even dream of having knee or hip replacement
surgery so let’s talk about the foods when you eat a ketogenic way that you’re
going to completely remove from your diet and I’m gonna try to list these in
order of most important to lesser importance by far and away the most
important thing to do is to slash your carbohydrate intake because when you do
that you keep your blood sugar and your serum insulin levels both very low
normal and that’s where they need to be when your blood sugars are chronically
high that absolutely inflames and damages the lining of your joints when
your insulin levels are chronically high that absolutely damages and in flames
the lining of your joints and so you want to eat as low carb as you possibly
can and that’s gonna decrease your blood sugar and decrease your serum insulin
level both of which will calm down the inflammation in your entire body but
also in all of your joints another thing that you’ve got to get out of your diet
is grains of any type now a lot of people already have caught on to the
fact that wheat can be very inflammatory process wheat foods can really inflame
all parts of your body from your gut to your
brain to your joints and so definitely the wheat has got to go wheat is not a
food for human beings you can’t eat wheat products to keep from starving to
death but they don’t really help you in many other ways whatsoever cut the wheat
out of your diet cut the rice out of your diet cut the corn out of your diet
and cut the oats out of your diet all of these grains have defense proteins built
into them to try to keep animals from eating them and those proteins inflame
different parts of your body and for many many of my patients it’s been their
joints they get the inflammation and for many people stopping the grains makes a
noticeable difference in their joint stiffness and pain and swelling so
please try that the next thing is vegetable oils canola safflower soybean
corn oil peanut oil any of these oils are inflammatory they have a terrible
omega-6 to omega-3 ratio which can really really wreak havoc on all your
body parts especially your joints and so you’ve got to get the vegetable oils you
got to get the Crisco the parquet the Country Crock I can’t believe it’s not
butter all that crap needs to go in the garbage
you need to use real butter bacon grease avocado oil olive oil those types of
things the next thing is liquid dairy and this comes from a reformed milk baby
I used to drink a gallon of milk a day when I played football in high school
thinking it was good for me good for my bones good for my joints now I know
looking back that when I was in my mid-30s my joints were killing me and
part of the reason was all the dairy I was drinking and so the only dairy that
I use in the almond dairy I recommend you use is butter the full fat cheese’s
and maybe heavy whipping cream but anything less fat than that is just
going to have too much lactose and too much of the potentially inflammatory
milk proteins in it that could inflame your joints another thing that people
find that inflamed in flames their joints is nightshades
this is tomatoes potatoes peppers eggplants and several other little
members of this species you you if you’re still if you’ve done a lot of
these things right still having joint information I would
try two or three-month trial of eating no nightshades whatsoever and see if
your joints don’t get better and then one more thing isn’t legumes beans and
peas a lot of people think these are really healthy foods they’re moderately
carbohydrate on the only carb levels some people can eat them some people
can’t when it comes to just weight loss in carbon count but I’ve had people say
you know my joints kept bugging me until I stopped the beans and peas and then my
joints got so much better so if you’re still having trouble with the joints I
would stop all beans and all peas for two to three months and see what that
does and so therefore the proper diet that’s going to actually give your
joints all the nutrition they need to rejuvenate and renew is the ketogenic
Way or the low carb high healthy fat or even the carnivore diet any of these are
gonna give you the nutrition you need to rebuild healthy joints and they’re not
going to cause inflammation in your body and in your joints that could lead to
that severe arthritis now all the treatments that doctors have
the bullets we have in our gun right the prescription pad and the scalpel all of
those things are temporary fixes right if you take anti-inflammatories or if
you take steroids those block your inflammatory cascade at certain points
and inflammation chronic inflammation is a bad thing but to stop it with a
pharmaceutical pill is not a victory okay you might have pain relief but
you’re damaging your kidneys and other organs by taking these medications
chronically and you do not want to do that I’ve had patients who take
ibuprofen or celebrex or or mobic for years and years it’s oh yeah it really
helps my arthritis doc just keep giving me refills of that only to come up a few
years later with kidney damage and I’m like yeah I remember I told you you
don’t need to be taking those every day but they did because it made the pain go
away it was a quick fix it was a band-aid instead of trying to figure out
the underlying cause they just wanted the quick fix and I would HIGHLY caution
you not to look for the quick fix whether it’s an anti-inflammatory
whether it’s a chronic steroid that you take whether it’s an opiate a narcotic
that you take we have a huge narcotic problem in the United States
right now because people are trying to just mask the inflammation in pain
instead of fixing the underlying problem and then we have a billion dollar
surgery industry that will replace your knee or your thumb joint or your
shoulder or your hip if the inflammation gets so bad that you just can’t stand
the pain almost none of those surgeries are truly necessary when you’re eating
the the appropriate human diet and you’re using your joints you’re moving
them okay remember back to where I was talking about the car analogy you don’t
wear your joints out by using them basically you need to go by the mantra
you either use them or you lose them that’s how you need to think about your
joints and so I’m not advocating skydiving or bull riding but you do need
to be active you need to go for a daily walk you need to lift some weights those
things will help you repair rejuvenate regenerate your your the cartilage
lining of your joints I’ve had patients who were bone-on-bone
in their knee and the orthopedic surgeon said there’s no other choice except for
a knee replacement nothing else will help you and I’ve seen these patients
change their diet changes your activity maybe get some Prolotherapy or PRP and
within a year’s time they’ve got beautiful cartilage in that joint again
it’s absolutely possible I’ve seen it happen it can’t happen for you as well
okay so please before you start taking on taking a narcotic or a stayer
electronically or an anti-inflammatory chronically or have joint replacement
surgery please try three months of a ketogenic
diet and being more active and then at the end of that time if your joints are
no better so be it go do what you’re gonna do to start with but please give
the proper way a three-month trial before you slap a bandaid on it okay now
