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
