thanks for joining us today doctor Pinkus Chris thanks for having me
0:49
so I wanna jump right into this one are these Omega wars all about
0:53
well pack up and I just wanna
0:57
let your listeners know what mega fatty acids are
1:00
these are essential oils that your body needs
1:04
in order to function and your body does not make him so
1:09
you need is omega fatty acids for our diet
1:12
okay alright so what’s what’s going on then I mean I’ve heard omega 3’s are
1:16
there other types of oils
1:18
the others there’s %uh there’s several deferred omega fatty acids are omega-3
1:23
the help for the good Omega
1:25
fatty acids it mostly comes from the food ok and then
1:29
there’s a mega sexes and omega 6’s come from plant
1:34
and plants oil there’s a there’s a fast that are used and junk food
1:40
okay the main war were talking about Chris are the omega 3’s versus the
1:45
Americas exit so doctor Pinkus what are these a mega war is all about
1:49
crew here’s the thing is that we are not good enough
1:53
omega 3’s in the body hmm and
1:56
omega 6’s their around in
1:59
way too much upon itself we’re getting way too many omega 6’s
2:03
okay alright so what’s going on then is it is it
2:07
I mean why is there a war well the mayor’s sixes
2:11
and the omega 3’s compete for the same
2:15
landing site on the cell on the cell wall
2:19
okay so explain that one to me a little bit saw even if you have
2:23
the whole 30 to the good oils the good omega oils yeah
2:28
animate a-sixes they 10+2
2:32
strive for the same land inside a receptor site on the cell
2:36
so if you have too many omega-6 in the body
2:40
which we tend to do here if you’re getting a good source of omega-3s
2:45
the chances are they’re not arriving is your body
2:48
because the omega-6 they’re hogging the receptor sites and many many years ago
2:53
the natural balance the omega 6’s tu amigo
2:57
three is for about two to one meaning that
3:00
just in the natural diet you get about two part
3:03
omega 6’s okay and one one part omega-3
3:08
now is that different today all I gotcha this is gonna way out of control
3:13
I’ve seen some report saying that its highest
3:17
52.1% but what what are some other things that you would recognize
3:20
as as job I’m you know having a imbalance have these omega-3 to omega-6
3:25
is
3:26
well the first one with the information and wanna talk about inflation not
3:31
talking about
3:31
I like stuff in your tall and and having a sports hall
3:36
i’m talking about. information throughout your body
3:39
I inflamed joints arthritis
3:42
cholesterol problems believe it or not cardiovascular
3:46
problems in cholesterol problems are due to inflammation skin problems
3:51
cognitive problems people 9 having the ability to
3:55
to process information hmm up there’s a whole list the things that
4:00
the first class that I took when I was a doctor
4:03
in medical school was a this information is the root of all
4:08
the right so the pretty day with previous list right exactly so you’re
4:12
saying then these a mega six is that we’re
4:15
getting in the junk food or the foods that maybe aren’t so good for us
4:20
art are then um are causing this information which in turn then causes
4:25
disease
4:26
the %uh that’s the problem and when you get too many omega 6’s in the diet again
4:30
these are the junk food oils manny’s the
4:33
a nope no wait a min away in a min away I like man A’s
4:37
using manny’s is not good for me well i’m saying that we’re getting too much
4:41
of it
4:42
okay RI is not about okay I in fact our
4:45
I call I think we’re kinda like a a main is nation at this point I
4:50
a mic and pick his state I take exception to that doctor p-
4:54
I i understand and I’m not allowed to continue in the show Chris but it seems
4:58
like it always goes that direction
5:00
I neck as I always like to stop the tell me to stay away from
5:04
all of our not that part of the problem I
5:07
and here we all love we all are president of their
5:11
salad dressings and but that that a huge source it is a mega sexes
5:16
and further compound the problem is we’re not good enough for me
5:22
threes mmm and you know I have
5:25
I opening experience this past summer
5:28
with both my mother and my mother-in-law
5:31
who I hope you’re not listening right now I
5:36
okay
5:37
I but my mother while women and had her second shift
5:42
replacement surgery okay it went really well by the way that modern
5:46
surgical techniques are amazing okay and
5:49
my mother went to a orthopedic surgeon because she has arthritis internet
5:55
so what was interested in him spending time with these
5:58
orthopedic doctors like these are some of the best actors that I know of
6:03
is looking at her accessories and so forth
6:06
100 not one of them ever
6:09
loaded either my mother and mother-in-law and question
6:13
why they had arthritis why where their bones deteriorating
6:18
wide where they have been inflammation and this problem
6:22
and why is it that is going through said the che information type process
6:26
that’s an interesting way of looking at it as I think most people you know
6:30
they’re looking more for the fix rather than the source
6:33
above the problem I am not sure I’d ask why either is just seems like it’s kind
6:37
of a fact the life
6:38
that’s the problem is that we we just kinda miss film
6:41
that is a fact of life and and the doctors there are programs is
6:46
accumulating a different reasons
6:48
why you hit on the same that they’re looking at because they’ll say well
6:51
because is runs in your family or your getting alright alright
6:56
get the genetic saying or due to the weather do the
6:59
stress and now we all these different reasons know even say what because
7:02
you’re a woman or because your man
7:04
hmm you know is due to leave a kinder enough that I like it like
7:08
all good also I have to live with this because you know my great-grandfather
7:12
have this
7:13
right right it doesn’t give me any reason if anything you can do to help
7:17
yourself
7:18
so are you saying then that that the rude have these things could certainly
7:21
be this
7:22
imbalance ever make it 3-2 a mega sixes in the body
7:26
well I’ll tell you why I like into study and
7:29
hundreds and hundreds of research article science behind this
7:34
is absolute there’s no question that if you star
7:38
increasing your omega 3’s like that good
7:42
oil into your body
7:44
any take conscious step 2 crackdown
7:47
I’m the bad one but we’ll always
7:50
you know I it’s just what I’ve been a practice almost thirty years
7:54
and one thing I noticed when I was a young doctor is
7:57
tell a patient to stop doing so many do more
8:00
I cannot it’s not just you doctor practices not just you
8:05
no I here somewhere after reaction well because look the was at work the
8:11
those that were in the situation because those are the foods we enjoy your that’s
8:15
the lifestyle that we enjoyed but I denied
8:18
I think you’re raising a valid point here have you know maybe it’s just a
8:22
a subtle change or a change over time love
8:25
recognizing how important it is to have this balance
8:29
so if you’re gonna have those foods world then you better have something to
8:33
balance it out
8:34
well as rating goes one step further Chris which is
8:37
people are out there and they’re really suffering and they’re looking for
8:40
solutions and
8:41
I have tons of people coming to doctor think that’s how I know I need omega-3
8:46
and and I always give the answer will look in your medicine cabinet
8:50
how many how many medications are you taking him for what NY
8:55
a higher because every time you taking a medication get
8:58
probably because you’re lacking star
9:02
nutrients in your body they should be here
9:05
except for our mmm okay alright so let’s say that I’m hearing you
9:09
you know with all of these factors that are working against us to me what what
9:14
are the right steps to take a minute if we’ve got this war going on in our
9:18
bodies between
9:19
a mega threes in a mega sixes and we get too many mega sixes
9:23
you know from our diet in in the things that we’re reading in if
9:26
even if you try and go out and get a mega threes
9:29
is he may not have as much as you need to know what’s the solution here doctor
9:33
pink is how do we
9:34
how do we eat the allies if you will and and helper bodies along
9:39
with omega 3’s break a good question well
9:42
what I for for is a good krill oil rather
9:46
fish oil we’ve we’ve talked about that a little bit before but it said just
9:49
because it’s so much more potent
9:51
yesterday so what more potent is a hundred percent
9:55
here the crew are harvested in
9:58
near the south pole are together in the Antarctic sea
10:01
even though there’s there’s no pollution there’s no human interaction
10:05
and the oil is the purest club
10:09
is the most absorbable omega 3’s oil
10:12
yeah because the power is put together how it comes out the
10:16
chrome naturally okay got it alright but you said I’d that that fish oils also a
10:20
good source if you can find a good fish alright if he can find a good one year
10:25
that would be okay but there’s too many things working against that right now
10:29
like the big box store all have these
10:32
a giant jar 07 100 capsule
10:37
fish oil Ryan you can buy in for twenty dollars and
10:40
you start to wonder they where they get their official because I’m not a lot
10:44
more money than their
10:45
for a for a good fish oil means more money than that for a good Fisher yes it
10:49
is
10:49
yes yeah for good what K gotta so I’ll you need to spend a little bit more
10:54
money and just be very
10:55
delicious when you get a good krill oil or good fish oil just stay on it
11:00
everything they say and that’s probably one of the biggest things in a lot of
11:04
people I talk to say well you know I took that for a while Alan
11:08
then I maybe I should go back to that end your doctor because you and I’ve had
11:12
this conversation is
11:13
you really have to build that into a habit and make a conscious decision that
11:18
know I need this you know this is just as important as the water I drink in the
11:22
air I breathe
11:22
better and and because it’s not a prescription drive
11:27
I mean try telling selling without a prescription drug that
11:30
take your blood pressure medicare right right exactly
11:33
you know this about scream at you I’m yeah
11:36
janet reno with that
11:38
attention so what let’s talk about the food side over doctor Pinkus me what
11:42
what are some other things that I could do to
11:44
let’s see if I wanted to try and in cut down
11:48
the foods that would have a mega sixes in if not eliminate them obviously we
11:52
can’t do that but
11:53
what what are some other steps I could take their well you just have to start
11:56
looking at
11:57
packaging and understand what you’re eating skills anything that has a
12:02
a like canola oil sunflower oil staff are also royal
12:08
and these are loaded in in the pre-packaged food
12:11
yes you cut out some prepackaged foods which really it all comes back to the
12:17
discussion on 19 in this much junk food hmm
12:20
know they’re just little things like no one trying it
12:23
you know hit you with a stick as they have to totally
12:26
change what you’re doing is just look I just things that you do for yourself
12:32
yeah mama makes sense and I think for most of us if we can find
12:35
you know those little tweaks those little changes may be a
12:38
a little different wave thinking about things it’s much easier then
12:42
if you just came on today and said well Chris stop beating man a stop eating
12:47
margarine stop eating all those spreads and by the way don’t every processed
12:51
foods again
12:52
yeah I’m probably going to be more of a yeah I I love you
12:55
you know I totally lose you in SF love the point the point is you know landing
13:00
gear ratio the word actor mean
13:02
teacher yeah yeah so so I i get more pleasure another
13:07
talking with you on a radio show or TV show that I do anything at all
13:11
because it allows people to really help them sell now that’s that’s exactly
13:15
