Jordan: Hi. I’m Jordan Rubin with Ancient Medicine Today,
brought to you by dr.axe.com. We’re going to teach you that food is medicine
and also how to know if your body’s out of balance. In fact, 13 warning signs your body is out
of balance. Sometimes we just wonder if something is wrong. How do you know when to go to the doctor? How do you know when you should get checked
out? What are the warning signs and what could
they mean. Number one, white tongue. Now in traditional Chinese medicine a white
tongue means many things, but often it has to do with digestive insufficiency or an overgrowth
of Candida. So you know if you’ve been on medication,
if you’ve been treated with chemotherapy, etcetera. You could have thrush which is white could
be green and brown. I’ve had it, it’s awful. If you got a white tongue something is imbalanced
and you want to like a nice pink tongue that looks really good, and most people don’t look
at their tongue all that much. But if you have kids you can tell kind of
something is brewing on the negative side if their tongue is white. Excess facial hair. Now this is for women. I know this is kind of a troubling topic but
if you’ve got hormone imbalances, particularly PCOS, you could have excess facial hair and
that can be remedied by balancing your body particularly on the carbohydrate side and
making sure your thyroid and adrenal are in good shape. We’ll talk about that in a moment. Irregular periods, people should be regular
with their time of the month, with their menstruation. A lot of women, journal, write it down. You want to do that because if you were having
extended periods of time without your period that could be an issue. So if you have an irregular period some are
real heavy, some are real light that could be an underlying issue. Usually, it has to do with too many toxins
built up or an endocrine system imbalance. Allergies, seasonal, environmental, food sensitivities,
if you’ve got allergies it’s a sign of something worse. We want to get to the root cause but when
you’re coughing, sniffling, sneezing, it’s not a cold, it doesn’t go away, constant nose
running, red itchy eyes, allergies could be the thing. You want to make sure to get to the bottom
of that. We’ll tell you in a moment. Belly fat. Folks we talked about beer belly, we talked
about the battle of the bulge. The bottom line is, when your belly or abdomen
has fat in it called visceral fat. You can measure your belly button, around
by the belly button, the more girth you have, the greater risk of all causes of death. This is not a joke, this is serious. Fat is another organ, and visceral fat is
hormone disrupting. It can cause toxicity, increase the risk of
diabetes, cancer, and of course, cardiovascular disease, heart attack, and stroke. It’s no joke, let’s get rid of that belly
fat so that we can live a long healthy life. Brain fog. Now some people forget where their car was
parked, or forget where their keys are, or forget their kids’ names. Folks, brain fog is usually the sign of something
internal. You need to check it out. Constipation. Well, medical textbooks even shown in schools
today say that, a bowel movement every three days is normal. It may be normal but it’s not healthy. Minimum of one, better two or three a day
is best. Constipation is usually defined by, I think
two bowel movements or less per week, but many people have issues with constipation
where it is dry, they have to strain, they’ve got hemorrhoids. Constipation is not simply localized. It’s a systemic issue. If you have a rash, break out in hives, and
this happens regularly. That’s the sign of a body imbalance. Joint pain. I’m not talking about playing five matches
of tennis and having a little tendonitis or tennis elbow. I’m not talking about having some soreness
from an exercise or sporting event, but chronic joint pain, even episodic joint pain is a
sign something else is going on. Sleep trouble. If you’re not falling asleep easily, if you’re
not staying asleep, and if you’re not waking up relatively easy, that means you’ve got
sleep trouble. That means you’re imbalanced. And it has to do with a lot of things, but
often it relates to what you eat and your night time blood sugar and insulin levels. You should be getting into that EMF sleep,
dreaming, etcetera. If you’re waking up and you’re a man to use
the bathroom that’s another issue altogether with your prostate. But sleep troubles indicate an imbalance. Thinning hair. This can be a lot of reasons, certainly genetic
can be part of it. But if not it could be a thyroid issue, it
could be a nutritional issue, and certainly there are ways to encourage thicker, more
healthy hair. Anxiety, if you have anxiety fairly often
that indicates a body imbalance. And here’s a big one, are you always cold? There are women that I know, some men too,
that are literally covering themselves up with blankets at work, at home, while everyone
else is just hanging and fine. Husbands and wives typically operate at different
temperatures. I know I always like it cold, my wife runs
a little colder. But if you’ve got cold clammy hands, if you
always feel cold, or if you’re always hot that could indicate a body imbalance. So now I’ve told you all the bad news, but
what do you do to determine what’s going on and overcome the imbalance? Number one, do a gut check. You may want to get a digestive analysis or
you can just try to track digestive issues such as gas, bloating, heartburn, indigestion. Track, how often infrequent you have bowel
movements, that’s a good way to do a home gut check. You can get allergy or sensitivity testing. There are many ways to do that, Alcat, Elisa
testing. Look online for holistic allergy testing,
find a doctor of functional or anti-aging medicine near you, and they will be able to
see what you’re sensitive to. This is a big one, if you want to balance
your body you’ve got to avoid certain foods. Avoid excess carbohydrates, avoid unbleached
and white flours, avoid sugar and artificial sweeteners, I believe you should avoid pork
and shellfish. I think you should avoid damaged fats, high
Omega-6 oils, trans-fatty acid rich foods. Avoid those and what you should eat? Think of good fats, you want good saturated
fats from coconut, and grass-fed butter and dairy, you want good fats from olives, olive
oil, avocado, macadamia nuts, and almonds, those are omega-9 fats called monounsaturated. And you want omega-3 fats from fish. You want them from chia, from flax, and from
healthy animal foods. You also want colorful foods for their antioxidant
levels and consume some high-fiber foods while you’re at it, but make sure to cut out some
of the excess carbs because a lot of these imbalances are caused by that. Try acupuncture, the Eastern medical treatment
that is truly amazing to help energy, blood, and life-force flow through your body. Find a local acupuncturist near you. Nowadays you can look online and see what
type of use they get can be very, very helpful for issues or maintenance of good health. What are the best exercises for you? Now a lot of people like to lift weights,
curls for girls, all that good stuff, the gun show. But bottom line folks, as we age we got to
realize that there are certain exercises that make us healthier. Planking for example, get that core strength
going. A lot of people like Pilates, yoga, barre
or gyrotonic, these are exercises that strengthen your body. Jumping on a mini trampoline is amazing, walking
on the beach, flat out walking. Sitting all the time causes you issues and
can cause imbalances in your physiology. Balancing herbs and oils. Essential oils are so great, diffuse them,
use them topically, and consume them. Today I have water and I put five drops of
organic lemon essential oil, makes the water taste good and it brings about balance through
detoxification. Lavender is a great oil, frankincense is a
great oil, and herbs are awesome. You can even do a search at draxe.com to find
the best herbs to balance the body. I bet you’ll be surprised, some of them are
right in your cabinet. Conquer infection and parasites. Sometimes your body is out of balance due
to your microbiome being imbalanced. You’ve got the wrong bugs in the wrong place
and the right bugs, they’re not even there. Maybe you’ve been on a lot of antibiotics. Maybe you’ve been in a foreign country and
picked up some parasites. You can conquer infection and parasites using
powerful herbs and spices, probiotics with SBOs, good fats, and essential oils. Again, if you’re interested in conquering
parasites, candida, and bacteria visit draxe.com. I guarantee you we have a great article for
you. Balance your electrolytes. This usually means more potassium, more magnesium,
more calcium, and less sodium. Consume electrolyte rich beverages, cultured
whey, coconut water, various fruits and vegetables, they all are rich in electrolytes. And if you do consume a lot of salt, cut it
down, and consume better salt, Celtic sea salt, real salt, Himalayan salt, the high
mineral salts are much, much better for you. Supplement correctly. Get on a good organic multivitamin, consume
a high quality omega-3, take a green superfood supplement which is really good for balance. Vitamin D is typically really, really important
as well, a probiotic with SPOs, take some enzymes if you have digestive issues, and
get on a good bone broth protein or collagen supplement to help strengthen your connective
tissue. Intermittent fasting is a great one. If your body’s out of balance, cut down the
time in a day that you eat. Fasting is a scary word but we’re talking
intermittent fasting. Eat for a shorter period of time to accelerate
cleansing. I will give you a trick right now that will
shock you. Write down the foods you eat today, all of
them. Including beverages, including candy, including
gum, we kind of leave that out sometimes. Tomorrow eat all the same food but do it in
half the time, so if you’re going to eat today for 16 hours you start at 6 a.m. and finish
at midnight, that’s actually longer than 16 hours isn’t it? This is going to be about math, so that will
be the last math question I ask you. Cut that down to 8, you can eat the same food
in a shorter period of time, and you’ll have better health, absolutely awesome. Intermittent fasting also known as daily cleansing
is a great way to bust cravings, to improve digestion, to reduce inflammation, and improve
sleep. Carb cycling. Lower your carbohydrates five days a week
and then a couple of days treat yourself that’s also known as a re-feed. But try to lower your carbs but instead of
feeling deprived know that it’s going to be, Taco Tuesday. Maybe you’re going to have a Spaghetti Saturday,
you can do it. But make sure to not be on a consistent high
carbohydrate level because that’s not good for your body, your brain, or other things. Here is a quick recap. Thirteen warning signs your body’s out of
balance. A white tongue, excessive facial hair particularly
in women, irregular periods only in women, allergies, belly fat, thinning hair, always
cold or always hot, clammy hands, sometimes I’ll touch somebody’s foot and I will feel
like I’m putting my hand in a freezer, not normal. Brain fog, for getting things too often could
be an imbalance, constipation, you got to get your bowels moving, your plumbing has
got to work for you to be healthy. Rashes and hives that last for extended periods
of time, that’s a sign of imbalance. Joint pain, sleep trouble, and anxiety. And what do we talk about doing? Do a gut check, see what’s going on inside. You’ll be glad you did. Allergy and sensitivity testing can pinpoint
foods that cause you trouble even if you’re not aware of it. Foods to eat? Good fats, antioxidants, get fiber in your
diet, high quality proteins, lower those carbohydrates, get rid of the chemicals and start feeling
better. Acupuncture is a great way to balance the
body, find a local acupuncturist or doctor of Oriental Medicine near you. Best exercise for you, it’s not about building
the external muscles, build the core, build the inside. Exercise is critical. You’ve got to do it. Move it, or lose it. Balancing herbs and oils. Essential oils and herbs should be used every
day to balance the body. Get rid of infections, parasites, bacteria
yeast, and virus. You can do it naturally. Electrolytes, more potassium, more calcium
or magnesium, and less sodium, and when you do consume salt make it the right kind. Supplements. Get your multis, get your omega-3, get your
green foods, get your protein from bone broth and collagen, and make sure that you are supplementing
with real food supplements. Intermittent fasting, shorten the time window
when you eat. Most people aren’t hungry for breakfast anyway. You were just told that’s the most important
meal of the day, by the cereal companies incidentally. Skip breakfast, yes skip breakfast, eat over
a shorter window, watch the pounds come off. Watch your body come alive. And carb cycling. Don’t get off carbs, don’t always go low-carb
and moan and groan about it. Cycle, maybe a few days you’re on lower carb
then you treat yourself. That’s the best way to do it. That protects your body. That brings you into balance. You know how else you can get into balance? By checking out nearly 2,000 articles teaching

  1. Skipping breakfast? Isn't it better to skip your supper, for example eating from 7 am to 3 pm? I love to have proper breakfast which gives me energy to do all the stuff I have planned.

  2. How do you treat yourself when you have Anerexia or have had it. Isn't fasting a bad thing when you have suffered from an eating disorder.

  3. im already aware of everything cuz i do researches everyday, but to be honest you have good aknowledges, your format of video is perfectly clear, easy to understand for everyone, not mixing everything then u get lost, u remember everything after watching your vid, also recap is nice, your plan of organization is perfect, just wanted to tell you that, good job doc =)

  4. i had white tong all my life,6 years agow i find out im coeliac.Now im on keto and i will fix my body.

  5. Thank you for the great food for thought! 💚 The good thing about realizing you are out of balance is, it will lead you to b be inbalanced! 🎬 Action..

  6. "How do you know when to go to the Doctor?"
    More importantly, what if you can't AFFORD to go?
    Even with insurance, they don't cover blood work that is needed to find out the vitamins/minerals that are needed.

  7. I figured out how to stop being so cold. 3 teaspoons of coconut oil or other healthy oil at 3 different times a day. Try it if you get cold. Cinnamon tea and chili also work.

  8. And what would the medical doctor recommend? Pharmaceutical drugs if the answer is yes?! I thought so. No Thanks, I go on raw fruit and vegetables and I am cured of everything. And you don't recommend dairy either as it's the biggest mucus forming in your body.

  9. Hey guys! I love what you're doing, Thank you! Can you Please shed some light on Black cumin seed oil in a video? I'm considering using it and recommending it but I want to hear what you think. I take your knowledge as gospel, thank you! 🙂

  10. absolutely love your videos. Thank you so much. keep up the good work. ♡◇♡

  11. My son just had blood tests done for helping learning to manage his ADHD without going to meds and we found his Zinc & Iron are really low. I need to find a really good supplements. What suggestions would you have?

  12. Jordan I'm so glad that you are part of this channel it seems like you are too talented to be teamed up you should be on your own maybe you are and I haven't found your own channel it's nice that you're helping out Dr. Ax but you have a excellent background you should mention your supplements here and there because your supplements are some of the best on the market and the past company that you owned "Garden of Life"

  13. don't ever trust Western Medical Doctors if you want to live healthy and you feel you must see a doctor then see a naturopathic doctor or a homeopathic doctor there are a lot of talented therapists out there working in the field of natural healing, I have been successful in the field for 26 years you're probably not in my city but going to a western medical doctor is definitely not the way to go for Optimal Health because if you haven't already heard overall they will just prescribe you medication and push you towards surgery too much of the time…
    To really stay healthy you need to think twice about seeing a medical doctor educate yourself more on natural therapies because they are EXTREMELY EXTREMELY effective.

  14. A lot of good info, I was going to send this to my daughter until I heard the Yogo reference, and I need to research the acupuncture.

    What has happened to you Jordan Rubin?

  15. might be time for you to do a little more research on sodium… things are changing…… and skipping breakfast isn't good for everyone.

  16. Thank you so much for all of your videos you're so helpful. You did mention yoga in this one. Ive watched so many videos recently about ex satanists and Ex-Wiccans and people who have been saved out of occult type situations and they all strongly say that yoga is a dangerous practice to be involved in. What do you think?

  17. Marylynn Vos Savant said that there is no such thing as a natural vitamin. So when you say organic multivitamin what are you talking about? Is there really a such thing as vitamin pills with real vitamins and not synthetic nor artificial?

  18. Unfortunately most insurance won't pay for an intestinal tract check and it costs about $2,000 to have a stool test done. After a year of abdominal pain issues my son (9 years) got finally checked out and diagnosed with a pancreatic enzyme insufficiency, while the four previous doctors were dismissing his symptoms as "faked". Instead they've been ignorant and incapable of providing professional diagnostics.

  19. IT'S so ironic how white doctors are using "primitive" methods from black,latino,Asian ,native American and Indian people …who thry have always looked at as less intelligent but in reality it is the whites and western ways which cause even fruit and vegetables and waters to be unsafe

  20. I have most 😔 34 and diagnosed with PMS I stopped taking HRT .. where do I start. How do I start? I just want to be better and myself again 😩

  21. TY SO MUCH DR. Jordan and TY SOOOO MUCH Dr. Josh! I started looking up things to help myself with celiac, vegan nutrition, but then I FOUND HOW AMAZING and SUPERIOR you and your food knowledge is and I WATCH YOU DAILY and am GOING TO HELP THIS WORLD AND ESPECIALLY MY MAMA with her health! Christ put in on my heart to start a GLUTEN FREE VEGAN NON GMO DELICIOUS restaurant chain with FREE food for EVERYONE who comes in! God bless you Dr. Josh and ALL your guests! I'm praying for you and your families! You're TRULY a blessings to me, my family and my mission!

  22. youtube comment section, that place where everyone says whats wrong with them just to be heard, knowing what to do to get better 98% of the time, but without the discipline to take the measures. join the club

  23. Jordan/Josh you never seems to mention hemp oil it's a good source of omega 3 I buy it from my supermarket, or hemp products e.g. seeds, powder or even fresh raw leaves which are a superfood green which can be added to smoothies.

  24. Love love love you guys~!! Just bought your fabulous book Essential oils and I take your probiotics daily ~!! ♥

  25. Excellent !!! Thanks So Much. I truly appreciate all this great teaching . God bless you and keep using you to bless to many.🙏

  26. Excellent video Dr. Axe you’re so much on point. Thanks for sharing these good suggestions. I’m certainly will try your dietary suggestions immediately. Stay well, God bless you 🙏❤️

  27. Most of the warning signs can be find as symptoms of infestation with TOXIC BLACK MOLD also. Check the TOXIC BLACK MOLD'S SYMPTOMS and try straight to have an certified mold inspector to check your house (sometime you know where its located because you can see it on your bathroom) because sometime it's hiding between the walls, under your carpet, into your basement, attic, AC, dishwasher, washer, etc. Generally it's better to eliminate the cause first before you start with any treatment to eliminate the symptoms. But by trying to doing that, of course you have to know what's the cause. Hope someone will get some benefits and changes in their life by reading my advice and I'll be so glad if I know than I help anyone from this world who was fighting too hard then long time with those and even more other symptoms caused by the TOXIC BLACK MOLD. Please no offense (that wasn't my point) and God Bless Everyone !

  28. GOOOOSH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO i am only 18! i have suffered from this in sooo long! i am eating healthy! BUT struggeling with overeating and binge on "health foods" i have so many allergies, i have every symptom but my doctors wint listen or understand me!?

  29. Greetings family😊you guys are the best!!!! God is Great and I thank Him for you. Thank you⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐💖
