In this video, we’re going to talk about how to avoid a silent stroke. This type of stroke is 14 times more common than a massive stroke.

What is a silent stroke?
A silent stroke is a mild stroke that has no symptoms but causes damage.

Risk Factors of a Stroke:
• Diabetes
• High blood pressure
• Cholesterol
• Obesity
• Atrial fibrillation
• Metabolic Syndrome
• Sleep apnea

All of these risk factors are actually symptoms of high insulin.

Ways to Prevent Clotting and Stroke:
1. DHA and EPA (Omega 3 fatty acid) – Salmon, Sardines, Cod Liver Oil
2. Garlic
3. Exercise
4. Exogenous Ketones (Ketones Salt)
5. Vitamin E
6. Healthy Ketogenic Diet and Intermittent Fasting

    I heard the garlic from Transylvania is the best.

  2. jean-paul Chevalier on December 12, 2019 at 4:53 pm

    thank you very much for this kind of video which I searched for a moment now

  3. pat fonta on December 12, 2019 at 4:53 pm

    often when i have a stroke i just smoke some good marijuanna to kill the pain, and i told my life insurance broker that if i die again from a stroke , i don’t want her to get my money, only if i die having sex

  4. Tina Sparks on December 12, 2019 at 4:55 pm

    I love you to death & constantly recommend your videos to others.
    However, I do have one criticism. I like to take screenshots for my "Health" folder & show to ppl when in discussions; but
    PLEASE, PLEASE look at your videos before posting or before starting to record one. This one has blank white space to our left (Your right) & you are standing in front of the words!! Tells me your intent. But you’re failing at that one little thing. The rest? you likely have no idea how many ppl you actually help, & how much we appreciate it. We SO do.

    Thank you!!

    P.S. Hi to the wife. Love her too!

    Very interesting as I have essential thrombocythemia and I take Clopidigrel.

  6. Sharon Ruffner on December 12, 2019 at 4:57 pm

    What do I buy for my father’s dementia. You mentioned exogenous ketones, so many to choose from. Want a pill form he can take. Please help!

  7. joe Moschetta on December 12, 2019 at 4:57 pm

    what are ketones

  8. Taciana Moraes on December 12, 2019 at 4:59 pm

    I had a stroke in December, 2018. I thought I was healthy because I was already doing IF since February 2018, and had lost 50 lbs. But was still eating carbs, and sometimes sugar. Not as much as in the past, but I believe all the years of eating absurd amounts of sugar, plus being on birth control, is what caused it. I am so fortunate not to have any major residual damage. Just a difference in perception with some of my sensory systems. In April of this year, I started keto to address auto-immune symptoms – also something new I was diagnosed with at the hospital. Again, I blame sugar, processed foods, and all this man-made poison that is sold to us as food. I have been mostly keto-carnivore. Feeling healthy, and still losing weight. When I consume carbs, I feel horrible. But I always get back to keto, and almost immediately feel better again. Thank goodness for all of the keto advocates and all the information they provide us for free. Thank you, Dr. Berg!

    80% of health care cost will be eliminated if people eat a whole food plant based diet with less animal products

    So can I start keto & IF at the same time as a beginner

  13. Mariam Al-Taee on December 12, 2019 at 5:00 pm

    Hi Dr. Berg , Could you please go deep in details in all videos because we are not doctors and also not native English speakers .
    And THANK YOU ⚘⚘⚘

  14. O Marshall on December 12, 2019 at 5:01 pm

    Thank you. How much vitamin E and reading the label how can I tell if it is synthetic or not?

  15. GreenhouseGrower on December 12, 2019 at 5:01 pm

    Hey, Dr Berg. Just watched this in 480p and it looked like 1080p. Maybe YouTube is using x265 on this video. It makes a tremendous difference on my low speed connection. Aside from that, as usual, Great Video. I don’t want silent strokes.

  16. Bella Vista on December 12, 2019 at 5:03 pm

    Amazing shirt

  18. Shamika Blyden-Mayo on December 12, 2019 at 5:05 pm

    I tried KETO, went to my annual exam and my cholesterol and LDL were increased from the prior year. Is keto not for me? My blood pressure remained low. Should I try a low card, low fat diet?

  19. Roiena Sabinos on December 12, 2019 at 5:08 pm

    Thank you Dr Berg!

  20. Don on December 12, 2019 at 5:10 pm

  23. MJ Railey on December 12, 2019 at 5:16 pm

    Great video and thankyou!

  24. J Cirafic on December 12, 2019 at 5:17 pm

    Excellent, thanks Dr Berg!

  25. Rodee1 on December 12, 2019 at 5:17 pm

    Big pharma will soon control garlic.

  26. Peaceful Warrior on December 12, 2019 at 5:18 pm

    Seems like the biggest medical problems are because of insulin and insulin resistance

  27. Redeemed 555 on December 12, 2019 at 5:20 pm

    Here’s a helpful tip when picking out vitamin E, look on the label, you’ll notice a (d) or (dl) somewhere on there, the (dl) is the synthetic kind, you don’t want that one, get the one with just the (d) alone. 😊 Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. Let’s be health conscious, and also, be busy about our Father’s business.

  28. Ali Arsenal on December 12, 2019 at 5:20 pm

    Oh God. I’m so lazy to exercise. Help me. I think my cholestrol is high, I can’t eat even eat mayonis. I will try to look for DHA/EPA supplements. Ketones salts is consumable for hashimoto(over active thyroid) patient?

  29. joe Moschetta on December 12, 2019 at 5:22 pm

    can supplements be just as helpful for omega 3 and garlic

  30. Nelda Smith on December 12, 2019 at 5:24 pm

    THIS IS EXACTLY MY PROBLEM. I NEED TO GET RID OF THE CALCIUM BUILD UP. I have excess calcium. I have had a MASSIVE  stroke. Both carotid arteries are blocked , left completely, right 60 % blocked. Neurologist say there’s nothing they can do. I take Krill Oil and Magnesium daily. What else can I do to get rid of my excess calcium IN MY CAROTID ARTERIES?

  31. Tess A. on December 12, 2019 at 5:29 pm

    I have a question doctor Berg, in the wake of Fukushima and other radiation poisoning is going on with our marine life what would you suggest an alternative for fish oils?

  32. Elkhaldoni Ahmed on December 12, 2019 at 5:30 pm

  37. Karen S on December 12, 2019 at 5:34 pm

    Dr Berg
    You don’t need to consume low K with Coumadin
    Just be constant; the Coumadin dose is matched to the intake by correlation with the blood test called the INR,

    Best wishes, Dr Karen Shapiro

  38. Queenie x on December 12, 2019 at 5:35 pm

    Do you avoid buying those ketones for when ur fasting ?

  39. Billy Lemon on December 12, 2019 at 5:35 pm

    A great source of information and knowledge, thank you Dr Eric Berg 😉

  40. Tiger Dave on December 12, 2019 at 5:36 pm

    I would welcome a good strong stroke if it would kill me instantly.

  41. Ricardo Doncillo on December 12, 2019 at 5:38 pm

    One of the best doctor’s online, advise and consultation is free and it doesn’t cost a thing… thanks for this Dr. Berg.

    My Dad died from a hemorrhagic stroke. Is that considered a silent stroke? He had high blood pressure for years and was on HBP meds, he took vitamin E, garlic, selenium, potassium, calcium etc. He’d read Prevention magazine and when he learned of something that might help him, he took note and picked those vitamins up. He had really bad varicose veins in his legs. Thankfully, I didn’t inherit them.

    I can’t bring my Dad back, but I can try to be healthier than he was. I have been on the Keto diet since March of this year. I’ve lost 18 lbs so far and would like to lose another 13 lbs. I have been checking my blood pressure, because I am on HBP meds like my Dad was. My blood pressure is now normal! I should have been doing this with my Doctor’s permission, because it’s been looking really good and I stopped taking my meds 3 days ago, but I’m carefully watching my blood pressure readings. I know that I shouldn’t have done that without my doctor’s knowledge, but I was afraid that it would go too low. I’m making an appointment, because it’s time to see her.

    Where can I get DHA and EPA from non-fish sources? I can’t stand the taste of fish.

  48. Sarah Love on December 12, 2019 at 5:48 pm

    Donating blood is known to keep your blood healthy. I donate every 8 weeks.

  49. razvanon on December 12, 2019 at 5:49 pm

    how can i take omega 3 and omega 6 but avoid having prostate problems later on , because some study shows that Fish-Derived Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Prostate Cancer are linked . what are your thoughts on that?

  50. Andy 828 on December 12, 2019 at 5:50 pm

    Great video!
    Why, however, are you orange?
