In this video, Dr. Berg talks about Humira alternative. Humira is an anti-inflammatory blockbuster and a top selling prescription drug. In the US, 70% of the population is on at least 1 drug. Glucose is highly inflammatory and a potent trigger for inflammation. Insulin is anti-inflammatory but high levels of insulin in the blood is also inflammatory. Consuming too much glucose, sugar and carbs it will increase insulin and develop into a condition called insulin resistance. Lowering insulin resistance could lower inflammation as well.
Ways to Drop Inflammation:
• Low Carb Diet or Healthy Ketosis
• Intermittent Fasting
Hey guys! So I recently had a question from someone who was on humira and they wanted to know if there’s any type of alternative. Well, first of all I want to tell you if you’re taking this medication, I’m not telling you to come of your medication. Check with your doctor, this video is just to give you some background information for you and your doctor to do research in some possible alternatives. The things you need to know about humira is it is a blockbuster prescription drug. And blockbuster meaning it’s over 1 billion dollars. In fact last year, the sale were over 16 billion dollars and if i’m not mistaken it’s the top-selling drug. What it does, is it lowers inflammation so it’s an anti-inflammatory. There’s a lot of people out there that have inflammation whether it’s arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis, all the itis’s or autoimmune and this drug targets inflammation. One of the big problems I see in America is that we are on way too many prescription drugs, 70% of the population is on at least one drug in the US with over 4 billion prescriptions written in the US every single year, that’s 13 medications for every man, woman and child. I think that’s a little excessive. What do you think? With over 30% of the prescriptions never even filled because it’s expensive. And it is hard to afford those medications. So what am I gonna recommend is a different solution to actually fix the underlying reason why you have inflammation. And I am not going to recommend going to the healthy store and taking a pill, turmeric or some type of omega-3 fatty acids to try to get rid of the inflammation because I’ve been in practice for thirty years, those things do not work unless you fix the person’s eating, their general eating plan. Glucose is highly inflammatory, it is a potent trigger for inflammation that includes all types of sugar. Vegetable oil that you would get in the store, soy, corn, canola, Omega-6 are also inflammatory. And then we get to insulin an anti-inflammatory. But high levels of insulin in the blood are inflammatory. So it can go either way, what happens is that when you consume too much glucose or sugar or carbs, what happens is you’re gonna start increasing insulin and then the insulin is going to develop into a condition called insulin resistance, so it is not gonna work anymore.
