Arterial plaque regression: Heart Attack – Proof

arterial plaque regession pt 2 how your body does it autophagy and hdl I get the best questions from from
viewers David Iver asked the other day he said what is the process by which
LDL is pulled out from between the media and intima layers of the artery wall a
brief answer that I gave had to do with three different mechanisms one was
inflammation which is not a good way another is otology autophagy is helpful
it’s very helpful more in cellular processes and what is autophagy
again break it down auto phage of Ag Auto means self and phagy means
eating so it’s your your cell eating pieces of itself – trash that have
proteins lipids things that have been used in the past but are no longer
necessary that’s actually a very good process and it has to do very much with
the obesity epidemic and it has to do with fasting if you never go through
fasting stages and if you are continually eating gaining weight your
cells never get to go through a healthy process called autophagy inflammation as
I mentioned earlier is not a good way to get to deal with plaque in your artery
walls it’s where your immune system says that plaque shouldn’t be there that LDL
should not be between the the intima and the media layers of the artery walls so
I’ll send in white cells monocytes leukocytes and attack those however I’ve
really majored on the minors here I’ve talked about the two ways that are
really not important there’s one key way that’s important for pulling LDL out of
artery walls and we’ll cover that in just a minute but first a brief
introduction my name is Ford brewer fOrd brewer BREwer with prevent heart
attack stroke cancer prevention we spend a lot of time
helping you understand how to prevent the major killers and disablers like
heart attack stroke cancer dementia and most of those are driven by this process
cardiovascular inflammation inflammation the number one driver is insulin
resistance diabetes carbohydrate metabolism problems and if you’re
thinking well that’s diabetes I don’t have to worry about that well if you’re
an adult in the state of California the UCLA says you’ve got a 50% chance one in
two chance that you have this in other words you’re burning your arteries right
now with cv inflammation cardiovascular inflammation due to
insulin resistance and if you’re age 60 it’s much higher than that what’s
interesting about this study is this is based only on fasting blood glucose and
hemoglobin a1c it doesn’t deal with the far more sensitive tests of oral glucose
tolerance and or insulin surveys so actually the reality is it’s far more
than that so if you haven’t had those tests if you haven’t made sure that you
don’t have carbohydrate metabolism problems I would ask you to consider
again now if you’re not inflaming your arteries but you still have plaque what
is the most common and the most important way of getting plaque out of
those artery walls David Ivers again thanks for asking and
Jon Lorscheider thanks for providing a great citation in this area
it’s HDL we’ve talked about that in the past several times and it actually
brings up a good point for me to talk about the importance of HDL what is HDL
what is LDL and why are the important and again I haven’t voiced it
but as you see here’s the here’s the the image LDL will drop and deposit fat in
the arteries HDL is like an empty dump truck and empty wheelbarrow taking that
LDL back out of the artery so it can be metabolized now again I said what is HDL
and LDL the the final L stands for lipoprotein so it’s high density
lipoprotein and low-density lipoprotein we’ll talk about that in other words
when you go to the doc most of us have heard this term HDL is called the good
cholesterol LDL is called the bad cholesterol HDL is actually again that
empty wheelbarrow what our lipoprotein so let’s go back in and break that down
for a second and clarify that lippo means fat or oil and protein obviously
means protein so this is a protein made to transport fat and or oil now why am i
holding this beat-up old water bottle with water and olive oil in it to
demonstrate a very important point which most of us already know oil and water
don’t mix but we eat oil we have oil we have fat with hamburgers
if you eat those and if you’re a very healthy person and you eat a lot of
olive oil extra virgin olive oil like this is even olive oil does not mix with
blood because blood is over 95% water well you know there’s a thing called fat
embolus and if you didn’t have something in your body to break down these these
big to keep this oil from coalescing you’d have what’s called a fat embolus
and those do actually occur they occur in car wrecks major trauma
where major bronze bones are broken because our bone marrow has fat in them
when that fat is released into the bloodstream from trauma it can cause a
heart attack stroke massive injury again because you’ve got this floating around
in your blood your when you digest it you have the lipoproteins on HDL LDL
apoE and what they do is they keep the those fat particles in a tiny
microscopic area so you don’t get these large emboli or embolus meaning a big
blob that’s going to cut off the blood supply so what is the most important way
of getting fat out of the area but between the the intima in the media it’s
HDL this helps actually underline the importance if you go back to some very
very basic science you understand something that is just you know
difficult to understand it until after you’ve seen patient after patient after
patient and that is HDL is far more protective than LDL is destructive and
let’s go back if you look at this there’s a way to begin to understand
that and that’s comparing let’s compare these two bars for example before I do
this is from the Framingham Heart Study most people have heard of Framingham
it’s you see it at in Haines you see it in a bunch of other studies so here is
the risk associated with heart attack and stroke cardiovascular risk and here
is LDL and this is HDL sorry about my graphics
they’re almost always bad but again you can tell it you can see the point here
someone with an HDL of 65 has lower heart attack and stroke risk even
if they have a LDL of 220 then another person with an LDL of 100 if their HDL
is only 25 so let me repeat that so you get that again
HDL 25 very low LDL 100 so the LDL is very low this person’s safe right that’s
where we always focus on the LDL the bad cholesterol look at the risk this person
has this person on the other hand has an LDL of 220 but their risk is far lower
why because their HDL is 65 so the point being again HDL is incredibly important
it’s far more protective than LDL is destructive John I didn’t get to cover
the your citation yet on different types of HDL and HDL metabolism hopefully I’ll
be able to do that in a in another video soon thanks for your interest
