9 Simple Home Tests To Monitor And Improve Your Health

Hey there, viewers! Keeping track of your health 
requires more than just seeing a doctor once a   year. Many serious health issues are first 
identified at home rather than the doctor's   office. Patients are generally the first to 
realize when something’s wrong with their health.   You should perform some quick health checks 
to determine if you need professional help.  In today’s video, we’ll highlight tests that can 
detect a dangerous illness even before symptoms   arise. Can you check for artery problems at 
home? What about diabetes? We’ll talk about   all this AND more…
Diabetes  Due to a lack of time, or fear of physicians, 
many people avoid medical tests.

However,   you can do tests from the comfort of your home 
to find out about your health. These approaches   can help you determine if it's time to seek 
professional help, or if everything is okay.  Numbness in your feet is one of the silent 
diabetes symptoms you might be overlooking.   The condition is called diabetic neuropathy. 
Do you feel pins, needles, or tingling in your   feet? Does it feel like you’re wearing socks or 
gloves when you aren't? Are your feet so sensitive   that even a bed cover can hurt them? Well, all 
of these are signs of peripheral nerve injury.  The numbness may be difficult to detect on 
your own, so have someone else use a pencil   to evaluate the feeling in your extremities.

you can tell you're being softly poked with the   tip or the eraser without looking, everything is 
fine. If not, it may be a red flag for diabetes.  The most frequent kind of nerve damage with 
diabetes is peripheral nerve injury, which affects   your hands, feet, legs, and arms. It frequently 
begins in one foot or both feet at the same time.  Touching your toes and feet with a sharp but safe 
item often informs you how good your nerves and   sensibilities are.

This is essential for people 
with diabetes and other nerve-related diseases.   If you don't feel sharp items in your toes as 
you should, it might indicate nerve injury;   the next step is to figure out why. You 
should see your doctor for more testing.  Have you tried poking your feet with a pencil?

Heart and Circulatory Problems  You may have heard that walking up the stairs is 
a healthier option than using the elevator. It’s   one of the best things cardiac physicians do to 
keep their hearts healthy. However, your stair   fitness level can also be utilized to assess 
whether you have cardiovascular issues or not.  Studies state that chest discomfort and 
shortness of breath are typical symptoms   of cardiovascular disease.

Shortness of breath 
is also a common symptom of angina and heart   failure. Patients with cardiovascular disease 
may feel both chest pain and shortness of breath   at different times, but many have both at once.
You will have to leave your house to complete   this exam. Climb an 8-12 step ladder while 
singing a song. You may also talk on the   phone or read something out loud. The most 
crucial thing is to communicate. If your   heart is racing and you're having trouble 
breathing, it's a sign your cardiovascular   system and lungs aren't up to the task.
Just a reminder that home-based tests do   not substitute a doctor's expert 
advice. If you have any symptoms   that concern you, talk to a doctor ASAP.

Anemia  Anemia affects around 2 billion people, 
or roughly 40% of the world's population,   according to the World Health Organization.

caused by a deficiency of hemoglobin, which means   that the body's muscles and tissues aren't getting 
enough oxygen and can't perform at full capacity.  Other signs of iron deficiency 
include paler-than-normal skin   and pale pigmentation on the inside of the lower 
eyelids. Because hemoglobin in red blood cells   gives blood its red color, iron deficiency causes 
the blood to become less red. Paleness caused by   iron deficiency can develop all over the body, 
or be isolated to one region such as the face,   gums, insides of lips, or lower eyelids.
For this test, you should pull your lower   eyelid down while standing in front of a mirror. 
The interior layer of your lower eyelid should   be red as you pull it down.

If it's a very 
pale pink or yellow tint, it might mean you   have anemia. You should see a doctor if you 
find you’re pale, tired, or unable to breathe.  Paleness is more prevalent in moderate 
and severe anemia cases. It’s one of   the first things physicians check for. 
It should, however, be double-checked.  Hearing
You need to get into a   quiet environment to complete this exam. Rub your 
fingers together and place your hand next to your   ear. Can you hear this sound? Now move your hand 
as far away from your ear as possible, rub your   fingers together once more. Is the sound still 
audible? If you answered yes to both, congrats,   your hearing is in good shape. Remember to perform 
the same thing with the second ear as well.  Before we move ahead, here’s another video you 
might like. Watch and learn what happens to your   body if you do squats every day. Now back 
to our talk on easy, at-home medical tests.  Arterial Issues
Blood is delivered to the limbs   through peripheral arteries. When the arteries 
get blocked, the muscles are deprived of oxygen,   resulting in unpleasant sensations such as 
numbness and discomfort.

The disorder is known   as peripheral artery disease and the symptoms 
are difficult to detect at first. It can lead   to heart attack and stroke if left untreated.
The location of the blockage and which portion   of your body receives a restricted blood flow 
determine your symptoms. Some of the signs   and symptoms of blocked or clogged arteries 
are fatigue, dizziness, breathing problems,   pain in the chest, cold hands or feet, numbness 
or pain, discoloration of the skin, or hair loss.  To test for this disease, you need to raise 
your feet at a 45° angle and hold them there   for several minutes.

Examine the color of your 
feet now. If your feet and toes are very pale,   it will suggest poor blood circulation. The color 
shift might be noticeable in one foot, or both.  Lung and Heart Disease  To check for this chronic illness, make an 
upside-down ‘J’ with your fingers and rub   your nails against each other. Can you see 
a tiny diamond shape between them? If yes,   it’s fantastic news. Your heart and 
arteries are in great working order!  If there’s no space between your fingernails, 
it might be an indication of nail clubbing.   The fact that fingers get thicker 
indicates a lack of oxygen in the blood.   Multiple factors can contribute to oxygen 
deprivation. Cardiovascular illnesses,   respiratory troubles, and gastrointestinal 
problems are only a few examples.  Skin Cancer
Unusual moles, sores,   lumps or blemishes in the skin might be a symptom 
of melanoma or another kind of skin cancer.  For this exam, start with your face and 
work your way down, inspecting your neck,   shoulders, chest, arms, and legs. 
Do not forget about your palms,   fingernails, soles of feet, toenails, private 
parts, and the spaces between your toes.  You can also ask a friend, spouse, or loved one 
to examine the parts of your body you can't see,   such as your scalp and back.

Take pictures of any 
suspicious moles so you can see how they evolve.  If you’re wondering what exactly you’re looking 
for, remember ABCDE. A is for asymmetrical,   B is for uneven borders, C is for color, D is 
for diameter (bigger than a pencil eraser),   E is for evolving, which means the 
mole changes appearance over time.  Talk to a dermatologist as soon as 
possible if you notice anything odd.   You should also see your dermatologist 
once a year for a full skin examination.  Hormonal Imbalance and 
Deficiency in Micronutrients  Hair loss is a natural occurrence. Experts 
estimate that we lose 50 to 100 hairs   every day. There’s usually nothing to be concerned 
about, but there’s a test you can take to be sure.  You may lose hair for a variety of reasons, 
including stress, poor hygiene, and major   health conditions. A hormonal imbalance or 
food shortage can cause hair to thin out.   These signs should not be overlooked.
Hormonal imbalance can be caused   by a poor diet, a stressful or sad 
lifestyle, or the use of medicines.  To do this test, you need to make sure your hair 
is dry and clean.

Pull-on a little strand of hair.   Make sure you're not pulling too hard. It's normal 
to have 2-3 hairs in your palm. If you have any   more, you should see a doctor.
Dementia and Stroke  Dementia is caused by slow brain changes and 
damage, usually due to aging. It’s uncommon   in people under the age of 65. Reduced blood 
supply to the brain causes vascular dementia,   which is a common kind.

It’s expected that roughly 
150,000 individuals in the UK are affected.   Vascular dementia tends to worsen with time, 
however, it can be slowed down in rare cases.  This self-health test requires a timer. 
Start the timer by lifting your leg until   your hip is parallel to the floor. You 
have a low chance of having a stroke or   getting dementia if you can stand in that 
position for 20 minutes or more. However,   if you can't keep your balance on one leg, 
there may be a problem with your brain vessels.  Take a few minutes each day to complete some 
basic health tests. Take control of your health   with these quick and easy assessments that may 
reveal major issues. Let’s keep the conversation   going with a couple related videos, shall 
we? Here's all you need to know about it.  Check out what the color of your urine 
says about your health. Or how about 14   health symptoms that men should never ignore?
Go ahead, click one. Or better yet, watch both,   and learn how regular health check-ups 
can help you avoid chronic illness.   Have you or anyone you know done these tests?

DON’T Use Paid Ads My #1 Organic Marketing Strategy | Neil Patel

Google generates over
a 100 billion dollars through paid advertising, per year. Facebook generates over
40 billion dollars a year in revenue through paid advertising. Hey everyone, I'm Neil Patel, and today, I'm gonna share with you
my number one organic hack. In other words, don't
use paid advertising. Check out this organic hack. (upbeat music) Before we get started, make sure you subscribe to this channel. That way, when I release
my next marketing video, you'll get notified. Now, I have a question for you. How many of you leverage paid advertising? If you spend money on Google Adverse or Facebook ads, or Taboola, Outbrain, or any of those sites, just
leave a comment below with yes. If you don't, leave a comment with no. Here's the thing about paid advertising, yeah, it generates a ROI, and if it's positive for you, you should be doing it. But the majority of the traffic doesn't go to the paid listings and I'm gonna show you one hack, that's how I get the majority
of my organic traffic.

It works really well, I just ask don't replicate it in the online marketing vertical, cause I don't want more competitors. So, here's what I do. You got a website, you got a blog, you're writing content, you're
already ranking for something other than your brand name. If you don't know what you rank for, go log into Google search console.

Go into Google search console, it'll show you all the terms
that you're ranking for. Look for the most popular terms. Now that you've seen the
terms that you're ranking for, look to see what page it's going to. Now that you know what page it's going to, we're like alright,
this page is generating all these visitors from this one keyword. Let's say you rank for the term
digital marketing like I do. You wanna take that phrase,
head over to Ubersuggest, put that keyword into Ubersuggest.

Ubersuggest will show you all the long tail
variations of that keyword. These long tail variations
are other variations of it, like digital marketing jobs,
digital marketing consultant. Whatever they may be, but
they're longer tail phrases of the head term, digital marketing. You wanna take those terms, like digital marketing jobs,
digital marketing tips, and see which ones are
relevant to the article or the page that's already ranking. Then, you wanna go to that page, and let's say for me
it's digital marketing, and you wanna end up rewriting the content to be more detailed to
include the long tail phrases that you haven't already included. What you'll find is, Ubersuggest shows you
the most popular terms that are related to the head term, they're just longer variations. And it even lists them out
in order based on popularity. If you take a minute, integrate
them into your content, you'll find that within 30
to 60 days at the latest, you'll also start ranking for
all those long tail phrases.

Now, the trick with this
isn't to just take those words like digital marketing tips and just shoving them in
your content everywhere. Because if you spam, it
creates a terrible experience and people are gonna bounce back. Instead, you need to adjust your content. So, my digital marketing guide got ranks for digital marketing, is roughly or around 10,000 words. Cause I kept going in,
taking all these keywords and adjusting that content, so now it'll just be
around digital marketing. But also all the other
long tail variations that are around those phrases like digital marketing tips,
digital marketing consultant. And by going in depth on all
of the ones that are relevant, cause you still want the article to flow, you will notice that you'll quickly rank. But, I've also done the experience of just shoving in
those long tail phrases.

It doesn't work if you
don't adjust your content. Now that you've adjusted your content, make sure you take some of the most popular long tail phrases, and put them in your title
tag and meta description. When you do Google search, the title is a title tag, that sentence description under
that is a meta description. By including those
keywords, or some of them, within your title tag
and meta description, you'll also find that is easier
and faster to rank for them. Now, the last thing I want you to do is, when you're updating your article, feel free to link out to other
sites to site your sources or that could be relevant
and benefit your audience. Because when you're linking
out to other people, it makes them flattered and happy. And if it's good for your audience, it also makes their life better as well. So, let's say I link
out to a guy name John, and he has an amazing
online marketing blog. I'll notify him. I'll be like, hey John, I have to say I'm a huge fan of your work

So much so, that I even linked
out to you in latest post. You can check it out here. Cheers, Neil Patel. P.S. if you share the
post it will make my day. And you'll find a lot more people will share your content
on Facebook and Twitter. This will get it more visibility and some of those people will then, even link back to you which
will boost your rankings for the main terms as well
as all those secondary terms. That's it, just doing
that one little hack, will get you so much more organic traffic. I did it for my digital marketing guide. I went from over 9,000 visitors a month, and now, when I did that,
I went to 17,000 visitors. Just by adding in more long tail phrases. It works that well. If you need help growing your traffic, feel free to check out my
agency, Neil Patel Digital. Of course, if you have any questions, leave a comment below and I'll answer it. If you like the video, appreciate that. And of course, share it with your friends, tell them about it.

ER Doctor REACTS to Funniest Paradise PD Medical Scenes #2

– Well, then I'm afraid your
clittosaurus will fall off. (dramatic music)
(Dr. Wagner laughing) (beeping) – It's been a minute since
we've taken a trip to paradise. Well, I wouldn't necessarily
call it paradise. (record scratching) Anyway, today we're going to be reacting to, and breaking down all of the crazy medical-type situations
from the Netflix exclusive, Paradise PD, for a second time. But before we get into it, if you're new to my channel, welcome. My name is Dr. Jordan Wagner. If you enjoy the
educational reaction video, smash that subscribe button, turn your bell notifications on.

That way you learn when
I post a new video. All right, let's dive right in. (Dr. Wagner laughing)
– Randall, you horny devil. I'm working. – Hey. – Come on. What are we
walking ourselves into? – I'm only here for my rectal exam. – So do you want me to
play doctor, or be doctor? Nevermind. I'll do both. – Totally inappropriate
conversation with the doctor. Throw some gloves on, man.
(dinging sound) That is an otoscope. "Oto-", ear. Not anal.

– (startled grunt) Oh my God. Randall. Have you been doing anything
unusual with your (beeping)? Answer truthfully. – No, just the usual stuff. – Typically there are only a few reasons why we actually need to do a rectal exam. Checking for masses,
checking for bleeding, checking for prostate issues. But that is about it. – Kiss my (beeping), mushroom cloud! (Dr. Wagner laughing)
(Randall laughing) – Well, the radiation
from the nuclear blast has mutated you (bleeping) polyp
into something terrifying. – What?
(jubilant laughing) (dramatic music)
– Ew, the fuck? Kill it.

– What the heck is that? Anal polyps. I don't even know if we
use that terminology. A polyp develops as a growth
of tissue on the mucosa, within the lining of the intestines. But it could come out. They could be cancerous,
so they need to be checked. – Let me run and grab my scalpel- – Wow. – And I'll take care of that butt head.

– Please don't kill me. – Who said that?
– Oh my gosh, it's talking. – Wait a minute. – Please don't kill me.
We could be best friends. I'll be your polyp pal. – Polyp buddy. – Well, you are kind
of a cute little devil. – Okay Chief, time to get your
head out of your (beeping). – (laughing)
– Hey, where'd he go? – He ran away. – ♪I've got a friend who lives down low♪ – What? – ♪He spends his time
where the sun don't show♪ – Oh that's a good rhyme. Good job. – ♪I got a friend who's big and strong♪ (laughing) – ♪I share a driveway with his dump♪ – Oh my gosh. That's horrible. Thinking about it realistically, the office doctor wouldn't take a scalpel to it, right then and there. (buzzer sound) – You have to be really careful, cutting anything down by the anus, because there's such
intricate muscles down there, that you wouldn't want to screw it up, and then somebody who's not going to be able to poop right for
the rest of their life.

– Look Dr. Funtlicher, the ball donor list is taking too long. I need nuts yesterday. – There's fake testicles that sometimes you can give to animals, called neuticles. But there's an equivalent for
humans, if they want them. They're just benign round object. I don't deal with transplanted testicles. I've never seen transplanted
testicles in my life, but just like with any organs, you can potentially transplant
them into somebody else. – Well, Randall, if you don't mind bending the law a little bit, you can always try the black market. – The organic black market.
(bell tolling) – We only harvest the
healthiest organs here. What are you in the market for? Spleen? Liver? Heart? Lungs? – Got any testicles?
(dinging) – Heirloom testicles. (laughing) I'm pretty sure that you can't just have the testicle just sitting out. – If you actually get to get an organ for transference, it has a shelf life.

Typically you're transporting
it on ice to keep it cool, to slow the metabolic processes down. You need to get the organ
quickly into the recipient. So it doesn't become
ischemic die and be useless. And you just wasted all those resources. – Oh, nice and ripe. How much? – $5,000 a ball. – $5,000?
(grumbling) Well, here's my counter offer. (gun cocking)
– Oh my gosh. (guns firing)
(Randall running) – I'm ready for my ball implant. – Wow, wow he stole all the testicles. And then he got shot
in the upper extremity. Would you pass out from that? Would you fall down on
the ground like that? Unlikely, more probably because
you're tired from running. You basically have one major
blood vessel in the arm you worry about if there's an injury to your brachial artery,
sits underneath here. You can actually feel it. Other than that, you can cause a fracture, flesh wounds, obviously. And then you can hit some nerves, but hard to bleed out in that area.

(swelling music) – Doc, how'd it go? – Well, you passed out before you could tell me anything. But luckily I found the note you wrote me. See, put all the balls in my sack. – No. – So I did. – Oh my God. You're the greatest doctor ever. (music with swagger playing) – He has the massive balls. I know it. (laughing) ♪Big ball energy♪ – Nice. Look at those things.

♪I got that big ball energy♪ – Wow. Will his ejaculations
be like a glass of milk? The ejaculate, or the
semen that comes out, is made up of sperm
plus the other nutrients that are then produced
in the prostate, right? You do have a combination of it. So no, you probably are not going to have the most massive ejaculation ever. But maybe you'll have a much more endless supply of sperm. This is funny. This is crazy. Paradise PD is very funny. My face hurts because I'm smiling so much. – In Gina's case, the
surgery was a huge success.

– That's great news. – Kind of a wash for me.
I get paid either way. – Oh that's messed up. But he gets paid either
way, but not really. Think about it. If he screws up and
doesn't have a successful, he's got malpractice and
he's got to pay into his malpractice and could be sued, for millions and millions of dollars. – Without that bullet affecting her brain, Gina will no longer only
be attracted to obese men. – Mm, hello Mr. Skinny. Mm, give me that ween, Mr. Lean. – Ooh. Maybe the surgery
worked a little too well.

– Oh geeze. – She just needs some fine tuning. – What? (laughing) – Now how does Kevin look? – This is incredible. I feel normal for the first
time since I was a little girl. – I thought you might want to keep this. It's the bullet I removed from your brain. – Whoa, they removed the
bullet from the brain. There are certain areas of her brain relating to personality or perception. The things that we'd like and crave, it could have been in a specific area of the brain that made you find more attraction in one type of
individual versus the other. Removing it could bring the underlying personality back or may not. – That almost looks like, – A ring.
– A Butthole. A ring, right. Of course. – This is a sign that I shouldn't waste another moment of my life.

Kevin Crawford, will you marry me? – Yes, yes.
– What? – The vision board worked. – Don't give him profit.
– Hurry it up, ladies. – Don't forget. This is
outpatient brain surgery. (tape rewinding) – Is it really outpatient brain surgery? What does that mean?
Outpatient is same day. That typically that doesn't
happen for brain surgery. – I've got a tea time in, oh. Gina, I'm pretty sure I
left my watch inside you. – You left your watch inside my head? – Head? I never said head.
– What? (watch beeping) (Dr. Wagner gasping)
(sirens blaring) – No! Totally inappropriate. Is it in the vaginal vault? Or is it in the rectal vault? I'm calling them vaults because they're areas that could hold objects.

And I only know this because I've had to remove objects
from both those areas. But that's disgusting,
totally inappropriate, and against the law. This doctor should be like
(mimicking cutting) license taken away. If he has one. (flute music) – Congratulations, is it a boy or a girl? – It's a clitoris. – Oh Gina. That's just not possible. – All right. Wait a minute. This doctor's like a one man show. He's the testicular doctor.
He's a brain surgeon. And now he's an OBGYN.

Okay. Family medicine doctors typically will do all realms of medicine,
but they're not surgeons. Typically they're not going
to be doing the surgery. They will refer to the
surgeon or to the specialist. And ER docs, we see it all. We don't have a choice. We like that. We just see whatever rolls
in and we take care of it. Sometimes if there's
even an animal involved, sometimes we have to take
care of that or figure it out. – You see a meteor wiped them all out. And they went extinct. – A clitoris not a dinosaur. It's my female pleasure center. (laughing) – Oh, you mean your clam buzzer? – Yeah, it's not called your clam buzzer. It's called your clitoris. That is, nope. This doctor is horrible. – We're adults here. No need to make up silly slang terms for your twat toggle.

– Uh-huh.
– What? – Oh my. – This doctor and his otoscope. It is not just an unlimited flashlight that you use, you can take everywhere. No. There are specific lights that we use. Not an otoscope. – I've never seen anything like this. – A giant clitoris? – Any clitoris. Well, it's extremely swollen, but you're going to be just fine. As long as you don't pleasure yourself, for the next 48 hours. – What? That's like telling Nancy Pelosi she can't fart in her hand and smell it. (laughing) – What happens if I just, touch it a little? – Yeah, the clitoris could get swollen for a multitude of different reasons. And obviously if it's swollen
and painful, don't touch it. It could have cellulitis to it. It could have a yeast
infection down there.

Could have a traumatic injury to it. So let it be and give it rest. 48 hours. You probably need a
little bit longer than that. – Well then, I'm afraid your
clittosaurus will fall off. (dramatic music)
(Dr. Wagner laughing) – The fact that he
calls it a clittosaurus. No it's not just gonna fall off. It will potentially get more swollen and more uncomfortable,
but it won't fall off. – Everyone needs a hobby. – I used to have a hobby. Illegal drugs. Now this town is like
Jeff Dunham standup act. Too clean and still kind of racist. – Nice. – Bullet, you should try
legal drugs like Adderall. The school kids say it makes them smarter, and gets them crunk AF. (jail door slamming) – Man. this doctor. Horrible.

Now this doctor talking about Adderall, it's very interesting. Some people really need this. It actually does typically focus them, versus people who don't need this actually gets them really
wired and jacked up. It's just interesting. When it comes to the spectrum of ADHD, we diagnose somebody by the age of seven. Should we be doing that or not? It's a whole other controversial topic. – Remember kids, it works
faster if you snort it. – I worked in California. We actually have to write
all our prescriptions electronically, and it has
to be sent into a pharmacy. The point of it is to curb opiate issues, drug addiction, and people
actually trying to like forge doctor's handwritings
on prescriptions. I'm a big advocate. If you can treat it
without using medications, I would go down that road first, or have a bridge between it. So say you're dealing
with anxiety, depression, and you need to identify
what's causing it. Yes. Temporarily getting on medication to then be able to get to the point where you don't need it anymore? Wonderful.

But being on something all the time, and not addressing the underlying issue, that is something that I'm
not the biggest fan of, but obviously I'm here
to help and support. Paradise PD. I loved it. It's always raunchy a little while, but if you guys liked this, definitely check out these reacts as well. And as always hit that subscribe button, turn your bell notifications on. Thank you so much for watching
and stay healthy my friends. (beeping) (upbeat music)

Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool 2 Workout | Train Like a Celebrity | Men’s Health

What a lot of people don't realize is that
Ryan does a lot of his own stunts in Deadpool. Me knowing that, I gotta make
sure that his program is really developing someone who is resilient. What I'm going to show you
today is an all-in, full-body workout. This is our way that
we can still go really heavy and focus on developing muscularity in the body,
but also limiting the amount of time from set to set to make sure that we're
getting a little bit of that metabolic effect, making sure that his conditioning
is really optimal. The first thing that I really focus on with Ryan
when he walks into a workout is his breathing. So we lay him down on the floor in about a 90–90 position with his heels elevated, and we get him belly breathing for about
three minutes. Give me an 8–second exhale, okay? And then he's gonna give me
a 4–second inhale. By getting your ribs to get into a better position,
you're gonna find that your body just moves and feels a lot better.
Right after that, we go into some foam rolling, spend about 3 minutes doing that as well.

The body is just gonna get a lot of waste out of it, and we're gonna find that when
it comes down to warming up, we're gonna get the body to warm up a lot more
quickly, and a lot more efficiently. Rather than taking Ryan and throwing him
on a bike or a treadmill, I really kind of dive in and look into the areas of
his body that are a little bit tight. We're trying to get some good movement
back into his thoracic spine. We do all this sitting — this starts locking up, and
that can also lead to a lot of shoulder restrictions; it can also lead to a lot
of hip restrictions. What we're doing now is we're really focusing
on his upper body rotation. So the way that his upper body rotates. We need it to
come from his middle back, not his lower back.

All the rotation is gonna come from his hips;
he's gonna do about five repetitions counterclockwise, and he's gonna do about
five repetitions clockwise. At that point, we're going to
the strength and conditioning. There is no best exercise, but this is
definitely one of my favorite ones. And why — this is a big way that we really
focus on the core, this is another way that we get our body to be fast, but it
trains the entire body. And it also gives you a little bit of a metabolic effect
where the heart rates up, and we're training the entire back side of the
body, which is the posterior chain, which is the most important side of the body
to train.

We are gonna go into a front squat — there's two different ways you can go about doing the front squat. We can go more of the powerlifting rack position,
which is something that Brett and I both take, or there's nothing wrong with going
more into what we call like a 'bodybuilding squat'. If at any point this
does not feel right or uncomfortable, let's go grab a kettlebell, and we can go
into a goblet squat. Very controlled tempo on the way down,
and explosive positive on the way up. One of my favorite pulling exercises — that's
a pull up.

And for those of you who are struggling to do pull ups, which is a lot
of people — we're gonna use a band. Literally giving you almost that
slingshot effect to where it's able to bring you up to the bar, get you a lot
stronger, get you doing pull-ups and build a lot of confidence. I've got twenty to
thirty different variations of carries. The first one we're gonna start with is
just a one-armed suitcase carry. You will not see me design a program and not have
carries in that program at least one time a week. It's working your shoulders,
it's working your grip — one of the biggest bang-for-your-buck movements
that you can be dealt. After the workout, we may finish with some conditioning, maybe about 5 to 10 minutes of some, you know, Airdyne bikes, some Versaclimber, something to really elevate the heart rate..

Intermittent Fasting: Effects On Health, Aging & Disease (Part 2)

To me, I remember reading this article, and
thinking this is a big step because up until now you sort of saw it in a bunch
of other places. You saw it in really in some really good science magazines, like
Nature magazine but finally hits the New England Journal. It's like, okay, no matter
how conservative and old school the doc might be, it becomes really hard to argue
with the point. And so as you start going through this article, it wasn't
original research. It wasn't studies as you know. It was more of a review, and
then really, it became more of a policy statement. Actually, I should have been
showing this image when you were describing what you were describing
because this is the image that gets into… okay,
there's you've got the mitochondria which are the powerhouses.

You've got a
bunch of different metabolic processes going all the way back to the genetic
components. And a recognition that you know what we have the same genetics in
our 20s that we have in our 50s, why are we getting insulin resistant in our 50s?
Maybe it's because you know that I think there's two things I think. There's some
inherent aging, but I also think it's clear that it's not just aging causing
insulin resistance alone.

I think the habit of eating 3 meals a day
minimum for 60 years or 55 years has a little something to do with our
epigenetics, and that's a major component of what happens. Here, we go back and we
start changing the signals, changing the the librarian that has to go back and
look for different enzymes, different genes. If we start getting our body used
to knowing that we're gonna have episodes where we need to pull energy
out of storage and out of trash stimulating autophagy as you know,
it's just a slightly different and a little bit more of an aggressive form of
using internal energy than just burning the glycogen that's in your liver, the
you know, the sugar stores in your liver, and glycogen more so than burning fat.
You're actually burning old beat-up dead mitochondria that if that are just no
longer working and other things as well. So yeah, it did a great job in terms of
describing a lot of the metabolic changes which are attributable to this
process of developing more of a catabolic as opposed to anabolic phase or
getting ketotic.

A couple of points about about that terminology – catabolic and
anabolic. Catabolism is where you're burning stuff that's already stored, you know the three things I mentioned: stored glycogen, stored fat
energy, and stored cell trash. Anabolic is you know you recognize that term
from anabolic steroids. That's where you're wanting to build muscles up, build
cells up. And as long as we're not going through any of these intermittent
fasting states, our body is in a constant anabolic mode. And that may be good for
growth, but it's not good for our basic metabolism, our basic avoidance of the
chronic diseases which are almost all vascular related. It was interesting some
of the points they made about the microbiome in there. And what was also
interesting to me was how they ended up the article talking about, okay, you know
what, we need to have much more of an organized… we need the standard medical
community out there now talking about intermittent fasting.

So that is
interesting. I am curious to see how long they'll take any comments about that.
Well, I'm smiling because you and I both know that's going to be a tough road to
hoe. It is tough sledding to get entrenched behaviors, and so doctors are
just like regular people when it comes to behavior change. Any of us with
entrenched behaviors whatever those are that we talked about for
some furniture, it's hard to change, and the medical establishment is no

And it may be harder because it's so much bigger. But I loved this
chart that was in the article because it is prescriptive for what we should be
doing. So we've had a lot of people ask about how to get into the CIMT event.
We've got a whole schedule on the membership page. I'm gonna take you
some through that real quick.

First of all, you go to
That takes you to our website. Click on the membership login page, and membership
is free. You just have to give your email address. Then you'll see you've got a
menu over on the left. Live webinars. Second live webinar. CIMT events. Click
that button, then click the gray button, and you see all of the schedule for
getting a good reliable CIMT near your area. Orlando. Central Western Ohio, just
west of Cincinnati. Austin, Texas. Detroit, Michigan. Rochester. Memphis. Lots of
places. And most of these are thanks to our good friend David Meinz. And again,
CIMT done reliably has got a lot of advantages. Very good way to screen, much
better than stress test, and a lot more comfortable than going to the cath lab.
Thank you for your interest. Go get a good CIMT you near you.

Lesson 1: Global Health Security and You

[TEXT: Young African Leaders Initiative:
Online Training Series] Hi, my name is Dr. Edmund Rutta, Senior Technical Advisor on
Tuberculosis in USAID’s Bureau for Global Health, [TEXT: Edmund Rutta, Senior Technical Advisor on
Tuberculosis, USAID Bureau for Global Health] and this is
Global Health Security and You. [TEXT: Effective Communication for Healthy Outcomes, Global Health
Security and You] [TEXT: Learning Objectives: Global Health Security and You] In this
lesson we will focus on global health security and the critical
role that health information plays in [TEXT: What is global health security?] surveillance, prevention
and mitigation of infectious disease outbreaks. [TEXT: How to collect, analyze and disseminate health information]
We will look at the key elements necessary for the collection,
analysis, and dissemination of health information. [TEXT: How to use digital tools to collect health data]
And finally, we will examine the importance of giving citizens access to digital tools to support the collection
and use of reliable health data.

As a TB expert, I know first-hand how easily an infectious
disease can spread from a localized threat to one that puts at risk entire populations in multiple cities and
even across regions, countries, and continents. [TEXT: Diseases do not respect borders.] Diseases don’t respect
borders. Credible information, a resilient health system and contingency
planning can stop an epidemic and prevent it from turning it into a
pandemic. The West Africa Ebola outbreak in 2014 could have been contained but
poor health infrastructure, weak surveillance systems, lack of reliable health data and often
contradicting health messages turned it into an epidemic of global

The international community was caught
unprepared and the consequences were grave: [TEXT: Over 30 thousand Ebola cases … 11 thousand deaths] over
30,000 Ebola cases, including approximately 11,000 dead from the
disease, another 10,000 estimated deaths due to
other health conditions going untreated, [TEXT: Poor coordination and communication] and millions of dollars
lost in duplication of efforts due to poor coordination and
communication across the global system. Further impacts on
food security, employment, healthcare, and education were felt for
months after the end of the outbreak. Many survivors
still struggle. Rumors, which tend to increase during any crisis, were not promptly
addressed via credible sources of information, a factor that
contributed to speculation, misinformation, and increased
infections. [TEXT: Ebola outbreaks exposed major gaps in global health crisis
management.] In many ways, the Ebola outbreak was a wake-up call
that exposed major weaknesses in the global system for addressing epidemic threats. But this tragic event also brought forth a commitment to a new
collective paradigm centered around global health security. We will look at the communication challenges and lessons learned on
the digital front from the Ebola outbreak later in this lesson. But first, I’ll outline the
Global Health Security Agenda. [TEXT: Global Health Security Agenda] The Global Health Security
Agenda or GHSA was launched in partnership with countries from
around the world.

[TEXT: Improve the capacities of countries to protect people against
infectious diseases.] The GHSA seeks to improve the capacities of
countries by strengthening health systems to protect people around the world
against infectious diseases. It also aims to attain a world safe and secure from global health
threats posed by infectious diseases through multilateral and multi-sectoral collaboration and the sharing of best practices
and metrics between partners – both those in government, as well as private and non-governmental stakeholders. As one of several implementing agencies for the United States’ GHSA
programs, [TEXT: USAID, from the American People]
the U.S. Agency for International Development is actively
working with our interagency partners around the world to channel resources to issues like animal health
and addressing existing and emerging zoonotic pathogens. [TEXT: Did you know? New outbreaks originate in
animals.] Are you aware, for instance, that 60 to 80 percent of new
infectious disease outbreaks originate in animals? With our partners, we are working toward the prevention of animal to
human infections, as well as anti-microbial resistance by promoting
the rational use of antibiotics.

By doing this we will be better prepared to work with governments
and communities to prevent and mitigate future health threats. Furthermore, USAID supports the preparedness and response to
infectious disease outbreaks at the community level including training health care workers in how other sectors can
influence disease transmission. The unifying theme of our work is to bring together the sectors of
animal health, human health, and environmental health to address the
burden of disease on communities. Strengthening
health systems and enhancing critical infrastructure also serves to
provide better access to healthcare for citizens and improve the quality and reliability of available health information. [TEXT: Collecting, Analyzing and Disseminating Accurate Health
Information] With the frequency and intensity of infectious disease outbreaks and
events increasing, there will be a continued need for global health
security resources. [TEXT: Safe, secure and strong laboratories … Well-trained
workforce] All countries need safe, secure, and strong laboratories;
a well-trained workforce; [TEXT: Multi-sectoral collaboration … Reliable disease surveillance
systems] multi-sectoral collaboration; reliable and sensitive
real-time disease surveillance systems; [TEXT: Command structure] and a command structure to coordinate an
effective and focused response that includes health practitioners and other professionals, along with the general

Strengthening the surveillance, laboratory, and workforce will be
critical as countries build the capacity to respond on their own to
new disease threats. [TEXT: What is your role in preventing the next disease outbreak?]
So, you have a role to play in making sure your country is
supporting approaches to prevent the next disease
outbreak and promote global health security, including prioritizing capacity building for these kinds of
resources before an outbreak strikes. As health communicators, you have a vital role to play to ensure
that accurate and timely information is delivered to the public to [TEXT: Inform … Raise awareness … Respond effectively during an
outbreak] inform, raise awareness, respond effectively during an
outbreak, [TEXT: Teach best practices to communities] and teach the best
practices for the community to take action. For instance, to help prevent the spread of zoonotic diseases,
educate yourself about food safety regulations in your country and why it is important to vaccinate
animals against certain diseases.

The collection, analysis and dissemination of accurate health
information is also critical for making effective policy and programmatic
decisions that will ensure that resources get to where they are
needed most. Unfortunately, communities must often deal with an array
of disconnected and parallel data systems; weak governance on enforcing information system standards; and
insufficient capacity of data use in health care. For example, a recent assessment of
Tanzania’s information systems [TEXT: 153 disconnected information systems across the health
sector] found 153 disconnected and separately financed and
implemented health information systems operating in various
programs and geographies across the health sector.

This is particularly troublesome during a health
crisis, when the health infrastructure is under siege and basic
health services are disrupted due to a surge in demand. [TEXT: Fighting Ebola with Information] In 2016,
USAID published a report entitled Fighting Ebola with Information:
Learning from the Use of Data, Information and Digital Technologies. A number of factors contributed to the “fog of information” that
characterized the collection and use of data in the early days of
the epidemic to capture how Ebola spread. [TEXT: Weak infrastructure … Absence of baseline data]
These included: weak infrastructure, such as gaps in reliable
electricity and digital connectivity; an absence of baseline data on populations; [TEXT: Lack of comprehensive maps … Lack of
machine-readable data] comprehensive and accessible geographic maps,
and the lack of machine-readable data.

Given the lack of data in communicaton infrascture, rumors about how
the Ebola virus was transmitted and inaccurate health information on
what constituted safe or unsafe behaviors caused panic and fueled
the epidemic. Training local journalists on how to responsibly
report a health crisis became a priority as efforts to contain the
epidemic increased and people realized that existing public messaging was not sufficient. Adequately
trained local journalists have a role to play in fostering dialogue,
addressing rumors and providing accurate health information.

[TEXT: Bridging the Digital Divide: Investing in Healthy
Communities] Building strong digital health systems and integrating social and
behavior change approaches are vital steps to advance global health
security and be better prepared to contain the next epidemic. As outlined in
the Fighting Ebola with Information report, key recommendations
include: [TEXT: Key Recommendations: Investing in digital
infrastructure] One, investing in the physical infrastructure that
extends digital connectivity. That means building more digital
towers to connect people who live in remote areas; [TEXT: Conducting baseline ICT
assessments] Two, conducting baseline, countrywide information and
communication technology assessments to gauge the reach, quality,
and access to mobile and broadband connectivity; [TEXT: Leveraging digital systems and real-time data] Three,
building staff capacity and data literacy as well as institutional
capacity to leverage digital systems and real-time data in support of operations, programs, and decision-making; [TEXT: Increase network access for emergencies] and Four,
negotiating preparedness protocols with key actors to increase telecommunications network access in emergency situations. By doing all of this and more, we will be better prepared to respond
effectively to a health crisis in the future. One of the positive
examples that came out of the Ebola crisis is
the mHero platform, [TEXT: mHero] a two-way, mobile phone based communication platform
that supports dialogue between ministries of health and health

This tool contributed greatly
to improving the collection of accurate health data and the
dissemination of reliable health messaging in the affected countries. Going forward, we must strengthen the technical, institutional, and
human systems required to rapidly gather, transmit, analyze, use, and share health data that is
essential to promoting global health security. This is critical both to keep pace with diseases that
spread with the ferocity and velocity of Ebola, and to be more resilient in the face of future global health
threats. [TEXT: Test your knowledge … … YALI Network]

7 Balsamic Vinegar Health Benefits | + 2 Recipes

Balsamic vinegar is a deep brown vinegar that’s
made from unfermented grape juice. It’s known for having distinctive, bold,
complex flavors and a tart aftertaste. Real balsamic vinegar is aged in barrels for
months or even years, and it can be quite expensive. Balsamic vinegar has become a popular ingredient
in food preparations, especially salad dressings and marinades. People use it as a low-fat additive and part
of a heart-healthy diet. Some people believe that balsamic vinegar
is good for you all by itself. It’s been suggested that balsamic vinegar
can contribute to weight loss, low cholesterol, and even a glowing complexion. It helps lower cholesterol! Of all of the benefits of balsamic vinegar,
this one is perhaps the most well-documented. Balsamic vinegar is an excellent choice for
those looking to maintain or lower their cholesterol levels. The antioxidants found in balsamic vinegar
target the “scavenger cells” that are toxic to your body and inflate your LDL (unhealthy
cholesterol) levels. By consuming balsamic vinegar as a dressing
or glaze, you can consume enough to help your body protect itself against clogged arteries. It aids in healthy digestion! The main active compound in balsamic vinegar
is acetic acidTrusted Source, which contains strains of probiotic bacteria.

These probiotics don’t just preserve food,
they can also enable healthy digestion and improve gut health. There’s also positive immune system benefits
to having these healthy bacteria called gut biome. The probiotic compounds in acetic acid could
be part of the reason some people swear balsamic vinegar makes them feel full. It supports weight loss! The vinegar family is known for its anti-obesity
characteristics, and balsamic vinegar is no exception. As mentioned before, balsamic vinegar contains
probiotic compounds that help you feel fuller, longer.

Unlike other flavoring agents like butter
and mayonnaise, balsamic vinegar is fat-free. Though it isn’t a magic weight loss potion,
there’s reason to believe that incorporating balsamic vinegar into your diet will help
you reach your weight loss goals. It’s diabetes-friendly! Balsamic vinegar is an anti-glycemic. In a 2006 review, studies even indicated that
after consuming vinegar, people with insulin resistance experience a blood sugar plateau
for up to five hours.

Using balsamic vinegar as a condiment can
make your meals more diabetes-friendly, and help you avoid blood sugar spikes that happen
after eating. It improves blood circulation! Balsamic vinegar contains polyphenols, which
are under investigation for how they help your cardiovascular system. You might not think about it often, but balsamic
vinegar is a fruit product because it’s made from grapes. Grapes have been found to keep your blood
platelets from aggregating, which may prevent cardiac diseases.

This might be part of the reason why Mediterranean
cultures have been using balsamic vinegar for centuries as a “healing” and “anti-aging”
ingredient. It may help with hypertension! Balsamic vinegar’s benefits for your cardiovascular
system extend to your blood pressure, too. A laboratory study from 2001 revealed that
rats with hypertension had better blood pressure after consuming vinegar over a long period
of time. By consuming 1 to 2 teaspoons of balsamic
vinegar as a dressing or marinade, you’re not only making your food more delicious,
you’re helping your heart health, too. It can improve your skin! Other types of vinegar, like apple cider vinegar,
might appeal more as topical acne remedies because the smell of balsamic vinegar is quite
pungent. The dark, stain-prone color of balsamic vinegar
might also put you off from applying it directly to your face. But balsamic vinegar contains both acetic
acid and antimicrobial compounds, as well as antioxidants.

Consuming balsamic vinegar as part of your
regular diet might make your skin look clearer and your complexion brighter. Risks and side effects! The risks of balsamic vinegar are low compared
to the potential health benefits, according to one review of the literature. If you drink raw balsamic vinegar, your throat
may become inflamed and your esophagus could be damaged. There are instances where drinking vinegar
can cause stomach pain or hurt the lining of your stomach. Be careful to monitor how much vinegar you’re
consuming. Stop using balsamic vinegar right away if
you feel it’s contributing to heartburn or gastric issues. Recipes! Balsamic glaze! A balsamic glaze is an easy way to start including
balsamic vinegar in your diet.

All you need is sugar, salt, and a high-quality
bottle of balsamic vinegar. Mix 16 ounces of balsamic vinegar in a saucepan
with a 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of ground sea salt. Turn the saucepan on medium heat and let it
boil. The mixture should cook down to about 8 oz.
as you stir it occasionally. The resulting glaze will be thick and syrupy. Let it cool and store in an airtight container. Caprese salad! For a dose of antioxidants, vitamin C, and
vitamin K, try this classic antipasto recipe. You’ll need: 2 – 3 beefsteak heirloom tomatoes,
8 oz. mozzarella cheese, 2-3 tbsp. balsamic vinegar,
2-3 tbsp. olive oil, fresh basil leaves,
sea salt. Slice the beefsteak tomatoes length-wise. In between the tomato slices, add thinly sliced
fresh mozzarella cheese. Layer basil over the tomatoes and mozzarella. Drizzle with olive oil, sea salt, and balsamic
vinegar to taste.
