Episode 11.13.2023 - How to Prevent Diabetic Retinopathy and Blindness with Dr. Seema Nanda


In this episode, Dr. Ardis and a guest, Dr. Seema Nanda, talk about the connection between diabetes and eye health, specifically focusing on diabetic retinopathy and blindness prevention. They emphasize the impact of diabetes on vision and how excessive sugar in the body can lead to various eye problems.

Dr. Nanda explains that diabetes can directly affect eye health and discusses how sugar accumulation in the body can cause a myopic shift, leading to blurry vision. They also mention the connection between high blood sugar levels, frequent urination, and dehydration.

The conversation delves into the effects of diabetes on various parts of the eye, including the meibomian glands and the vitreous humor. It's mentioned that high sugar intake can damage these components, potentially leading to dryness and glaucoma.

They highlight the global prevalence of diabetic retinopathy and the alarming projection of increasing cases, with Africa having the highest rates and South and Central America the lowest. The discussion also touches upon the impact of COVID-19 on diabetes diagnoses.

Dr. Nanda provides information on managing and reversing diabetes, particularly concerning eye health, and suggests healthy food choices and nutrition tips. They recommend foods like avocados, apple cider vinegar, berries, chia seeds, and date palm sugar for a balanced diet.

The conversation emphasizes the importance of choosing organic and non-GMO foods over processed juices, and they caution against purchasing fruit juices that may be concentrated and sweetened with added sugar. They recommend including mackerel and other fatty fish in the diet to reduce sugar cravings and improve eye health.

Towards the end, there are recommendations such as eating almonds before a meal to control appetite, an A-Z alphabet approach to food for diabetes management, and even the idea of getting a dog for diabetes management. Dr. Nanda discusses potential negative effects of diabetes drugs like Ozempic and encourages viewers to seek help if they experience vision problems, offering her services at the Nanda Dry Eye Institute in Houston, Texas.

Dr. Seema Nanda  4:15 

Wonderful. I love it. I love it. So well, I thank you again, for allowing me to share my thoughts and wisdom with your audience. And hopefully we can shed some light and open their eyes. Amen to that. I know.

Dr. Ardis  4:31 

Dr. Nanda rhymes with Panda. So she told me to say

Dr. Seema Nanda  4:34 

no, I didn't tell him you say just to remember it.

Dr. Ardis  4:37 

Remember panda and Nanda.

Dr. Seema Nanda  4:40 

Patients and I'm gonna talk go Dr. Panda. I'm like no, Nanda, but it's mandatory that you remember

Dr. Ardis  4:44 

it. Yeah. Now you are not new to this program. No, this is your second time. Show second rodeo. First time in my studio at my house that we built over the last few months when the studio went bankrupt. I wonder if that had anything to do with the sensor material we were creating. from it. needs people around the world kudos. Wow. All right. So lots of people have shown up and benefited from your efforts in clinical practice as an eye doctor, which is phenomenal. You're also a professor at the University of Houston. I've heard the rumor. So she is by nature, an educator and a speaker, which is gonna be great. This makes it easy for a podcast studio for you to articulate information. Alright, so number one, I would like you to educate the audiences. Today we're going to be discussing diabetes and diabetic retinopathy. And I'd like to first have you discuss is diabetes an issue that an eye doctor sees directly implicated inside of issues with the eyes of your patients?

Dr. Seema Nanda  5:37 

There are so many implications. Okay, so eyes are the windows to the soul. I do windows.

Dr. Ardis  5:42 

Yay, your window treatment?

Dr. Seema Nanda  5:44 

Yes. So when we look in, you know, think about it, the eyes are the only body part that you can look in without having to cut into somebody, you can see the vessels, you can see the nerve, you can see everything. So it lets us it gives us a peek into what's happening to the rest of the body. And a lot of people don't even realize it because like, do I have to get my eyes dilated? And like, it's like going to the OB Gen and say, No, keep your legs crossed, we're gonna look at you got to look again. But that's another joke because there is an OB Jin with the name Dr. Nanda as well in Houston. And so when they were calling, I'm like wrong dilation, sorry. They're like, what? Okay, so anyway, yeah, no, true story. Okay, so what is diabetes? What does it do? Okay, obviously, they're

Dr. Ardis  6:26 

gonna see the eye. What do people issues before you look out there? Well, a

Dr. Seema Nanda  6:30 

lot of the times they don't notice anything, okay? Because it depends on where it is on the AI. In other words, some examples, lots of examples. Okay. So one of the things one of the first things okay, if they have an issue, there's something they're saying I can't see. Okay, I used to be able to see far away and now I all I can do is see up close all I mean, he's great, because now I can read or I can look at my iPad, but I can't see anything far away. That's called a myopic shift. Okay, so what happens? The sugar collects? Well, let me explain what sugar does in the body anyway. Okay, so like you have your iced tea. Now I'm gonna switch accents, because that's what I do. I'm sorry. So if you're a Southern belle out in Georgia, and you're drinking a sip of cool iced tea, on a hot summer day, you put a one or two teaspoons of sugar in there. And that's okay. That's what you need one or two teaspoons of sugar in the body. It's all right. But it's when you put in like a cup or two cups of sugar. All of a sudden, there's too much sugar in the body. So that's when they say I got the sugars. That's what happened. And so you got too much sugar in the body and all of a sudden, remember that tea which is supposed to be nice and clear and cool. Well, it's like thick and syrupy and goopy. Now for steak and syrup and goby. Now, the only way you get oxygen to your body anywhere in the body is through the blood, right? So if your red blood cells are swimming, and all this sugar, you think you're gonna get oxygen anywhere. Now that smallest vessels, I'm gonna switch back to English, right? Is that right? So the smallest vessels in the body are in your eyes and in your toes. And I ain't checking anyone's toe, Jim not happening, me neither. But if you look in the eyes, you can see because they are the smallest vessels, those are the ones are going to be depleted of oxygen first. So what happens because of this thick, syrupy, goopy, blood blood thick blood, what happens is it's trying like I'm breathing here, I'm gonna make like Godfather I can't breathe, it's a little bit hard. So what happens is, it starts growing, fragile blood vessels all the way around the eye, trying to increase the oxygen, so it starts growing blood vessels that shouldn't be there. God knows how many blood vessels are supposed to be here, literally, God knows. Okay, when you add extra ones, it's not the right construction. So if it's not the right construction, what happens because it's fragile. What happens when you build a flimsy house on a bad foundation? One, one, tornado one, wind gusts, and it knocks the whole thing off, versus a house that built solid on bricks and everything like that. So it has the bricks and mortar, everything. That's God's creation. That's the blood vessels that you're made with. When these other blood vessels start showing up. It's like the fly by night, you know, we'll make your house in two minutes. It's we'll make these blood vessels in two minutes. And so what happens is the blood vessels break, they are fragile, and those breakages and those blood vessels are called hemorrhages. So these hemorrhages are on the back of the eye because the front of the eyes, the cornea, the back of the eyes, the retina. This is what we learned back time. Last time, the RET Tina, remember that we were okay. So the retinas the back of the eye. And those blood vessels which again, offshoot from the heart. So you get you know, the big boom, boom, boom, boom, and the heart is having a harder time pumping. So it's getting tired because it's trying to pour through the sludge. So that's why heart attacks actually happen with those patients who have diabetes and why

Dr. Ardis  9:54 

so many Americans are aspirin, baby aspirin deficient, put somebody

Dr. Seema Nanda  9:59 

on those plate The difference? Yeah, the platelet the blood thinners, why don't you fix the problem, which is the sugar, forget about oh, sending the blood. So you got this clogged artery basically. So you got this highway of cars, and then all of a sudden goes for five lanes to two lanes. Well, that's what this clogged artery is this thick thickening of the sugar in the blood is making it harder for the blood to pass. So what do they do? They thin it out with like you said aspirin. And aspirin does not fix the sugar in the blood at all. So when we're looking at like I said, the hemorrhages so the back of the eye starts having these hemorrhages this off the offshoot of the internal carotid goes to the ophthalmic artery. And then you have these little retinal vessels. And those are bifurcations. The branch retinal that's you hear

Dr. Ardis  10:40 

that there's like five medical terminologies mostly Latin that none of y'all know. So I'm going to show you all something great, so just sit there, because now I'm going to show you what she's saying ready.

Video  10:55 

diabetic eye disease can cause severe vision loss, or even blindness. Diabetic retinopathy is the most common diabetic eye disease and is a leading cause of blindness in persons with diabetes. It is caused by changes in the blood vessels of the retina. The retina is the light sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. A healthy reading is necessary for good vision. In some people with diabetic retinopathy, blood vessels of the retina may swell and leak fluid or blood. In other people with diabetes, abnormal new blood vessels grow on the surface of the resident. At first, diabetic retinopathy may not cause any changes vision. But over time, diabetic retinopathy can get worse. At first, a person might see spots floating in their vision. Or maybe there was a general blurry vision. Eventually, diabetic retinopathy may cause vision loss, and even blindness.

Dr. Ardis  11:51 

All right, so I wanted y'all to see what it is he was just talking about. She was talking about the hemorrhaging. Right, right. Just saw the leaking. I love it. When they say out of the blood, they could leak fluid, fluids, or maybe blood.

Dr. Seema Nanda  12:02 

Oh my goodness, the blood vessels really? It's just Yeah, that's the blood in the blood vessel. You think? Thanks. Maybe red blood cells. They're popping all over the place.

Dr. Ardis  12:11 

And then when you just said, you can ask the body will start growing new blood vessels because it's compensate. Oh my god, I just watched a video they were showing it exactly.

Dr. Seema Nanda  12:19 

Now. Yeah, it makes sense. It makes sense. So when when these blood vessels start to pop and pop and drop, yeah, anyway, it's not a good thing. And so when the hemorrhages are way out in the side, the patient might not notice it. However, this is when it gets scary. There are 10 layers to the retina by the way, what 10 layers 10 lowly new one now but you guys can layers to the retina. There's five layers of the cornea, so 10 layers to the retina. And when we can see there's blood vessels coursing through your retinas are like ogres they have their onions. Yes, they have layers. Oh, sorry, I do my Shrek accent. It's a bit Scottish. That's that's threat. SEC is a Scottish accent if you knew that. Anyway, here's like, with onion, we have layers, okay, so the retina has layers. So when we have all these layers to the retina, you can have different layers of hemorrhaging. So when the hemorrhaging occurs into a deeper layer versus a superficial layer, then what happens if it cuts into the center of the vision, you can have a big red spot in your vision and the patient says, I see red everywhere. And I'm like, Oh, you have a deep. It's called a boat him It looks like a boat literally in the back of the eye. And it's the shape of a boat. I had one patient whose blood was right in the center and then it was reabsorbing because that's what the body does. It tries to heal itself. Especially if you change your diet, which I'm gonna go through the ABCs let second part anyway. So once the body starts to reabsorb itself, I have I could probably share that with you, which is shaped into a heart. Wow, that's it was very cute. I love that. That's awesome. But that was God trying to heal the eye. So Amen to that. Amen. Oh, I think so. What

Dr. Ardis  13:58 

did people complain about? I need to know. Okay, so they complain about with eye issues and their diabetics. Okay,

Dr. Seema Nanda  14:03 

so like 33% of the population who has diabetes ends up with a retinopathy. 32% That's very Cabal.

Dr. Ardis  14:12 

It's very ugly number. That's a very sick 32. Yeah,

Dr. Seema Nanda  14:14 

well, anyway, 37 million people actually have diabetes. That's one in 10 of the population has diabetes or diabetes, diabetic retinopathy, diabetes, diabetes. Yeah. And 33% of those have diabetic retinopathy. That's a lot of people diabetic retinopathy. Anyway, so which tells you everyone is eating packaged items, all the things that contain something to preserve the food, and that's usually sugar or salt. But most of the, I mean, I can taste sugar and ketchup. Now. I don't even take ketchup now. Because I can taste the sugar. I don't have sugar in anything that I eat or do and I don't eat a packaged item. And if you want to save yourself, you would not do that either. So what's the other thing I told you about the myopic shift because what happens is the sugars in the blood Okay, and it leaks everywhere, okay, and then it gets into the lens of the eye and it fills up and you want to talk about layers. Actually, we describe the lens, the crystallin lens inside the eye behind the iris, which is the color part of the eye. It does the focusing it focuses in and out allows you to see far and then near when it is when your body is so full of sugar, it doesn't have anywhere to go. So it spills over inside into the lens. And that is called sorbitol, s o r B I T O L. And once it fills up that lens, all of a sudden it becomes fat and myopic. So all of a sudden, you can't see far away, you can see and I shouldn't say all of a sudden it is timed as your sugar spills over into different body parts because I told you the first thing is the eyes, then it goes to the red and the toes, and then it fills up everywhere else. So you could have pre diabetes, meaning there's the sugar is over whelming your system, but when you check your hemoglobin a one C which is your glycosylated hemoglobin, which in English means we have sugar in our bloods on our blood cells, but to a lower number. When it goes over to his higher number they say on Lucky number seven, right? If your hemoglobin glycosylated hemoglobin or h one hemoglobin h one a one C ends up being over seven, then you say oh you're no longer pre diabetic, you are diabetic. And those are just numbers that don't make any sense to you. But what does make sense to you is you feel like this, I need some water here. Okay, so you need water, you get thirsty, then you're always running to the bathroom. That means your kidneys are overdoing. It's like trying to process all the sugar. It can't because it's overfilled in the body, and you're running to the bathroom. So you're poly Fazio polydipsia and poly, whatever it was bathroom anyway, so polyurea. So it's meaning I feel thirsty all the time. I feel hungry all the time. And I feel like have to go the bathroom all the time. Those are your first clinical symptoms of diabetes. Now when it gets when you start getting bigger, and you're like, it's not even Thanksgiving dinner, and you're kind of releasing your belt because you're like, I feel really big after that pumpkin pie. By the way, pumpkin is good for you. But the pie part is not. Anyway. So when you see all those things, you're like, what else can happen to you? What else can happen to you? Okay, so that's the lens. And I said about the retina. What about the eyes? Can you get dry eyes from diabetes? Asked me can

Dr. Ardis  17:21 

I get dry eyes from pumpkin pie? Awesome.

Dr. Seema Nanda  17:25 

Sugar part the sugar bread. So yes. So in the corneal in the tears in front of the cornea, there actually insulin in the tears and it regulates so if you have a higher amount of sugar in the body, and it's in the tears, it actually causes destruction of the glands behind the eyelashes, which are called the meibomian glands. I know big words. Think of sebum on the skin, my bum on the eyes, the lids have my bone. And the those areas the the cells that carry the mind them become atrophied. I'm doing it's shrinking. They're atrophying they're dying off because the sugar in the body is killing the glands. Yeah, and then you end up with dry eyes. And there's a higher incidence of patients ends up with those styes on the eyes or Chile Xeons. That's the fancy word name for it. Ch AE L A Zi o en Chile Xion or Hordeum. These are the styes and you feel this big bump that started like oh my gosh, my eyes bothering you. Like, okay, do you have diabetes? What does that have to do with anything? Because all of a sudden, the insulin resistance is happening and the tears and the eyes and everything else. So that's just the front of the I said about the lens. And then I said about the retina and the retina. Like I said there's different things. But what about in between all that between the lens and the retina is this big space called the vitreous? And I think we discussed that a little bit before, right? Yeah, consumers, right. So we have the aqueous humor and the vitreous humor. Which one's funnier? You decide, okay, it's the Reese's versus peanut butter or the chocolate. I go for chocolate. Anyway, the vitreous can fill up. So once those blood vessels fill overspill, like Niagara Falls, just vomiting out sugar everywhere, because it just doesn't have any place to go. And this is a closed space. So what happens is the blood will leak from the blood vessels and can fill up the vitreous. And you can have like glaucoma, you can cause glaucoma as a secondary glaucoma. Oh, you're brilliant. Yeah. So when you clog up the drainage hole, which is what glaucoma does, and you're filling it up with blood, then all of a sudden everything goes dark, and the patient's I can't see Oh,

Dr. Ardis  19:34 

is the humor supposed to be filled with blood? Now?

Dr. Seema Nanda  19:36 

It's a gelatinous, clear substance and sometimes, as we age, that gelatinous, clear substance time that kind of starts pulling and instead of being thick, like jello, remember last time jello everyone loves gel. Instead of being thick like gel, it becomes liquidy and when it comes liquidy as we age, you start to see those spots in your vision and those are floaters. floaters are benign But blood not good. And when that fills up it's like an eight ball they even call it like that an eight ball high FEMA the blood in the eye when it fills up now, what about the colored part of the eye? Is that Is that safe to do you think something can get onto that

Dr. Ardis  20:14 

onto your iris? Thanks I'm gonna get there. Yes, I do.

Dr. Seema Nanda  20:18 

Good answer. Yeah. So when the diabetes I guess that was a good guess very good he gets an A plus for guessing A for Ardis. Alright so now what happens when the front of the eye with the colored part of the eye when the blood vessels tired in the back and they're like, look, we've already overstayed our welcome, now they're gonna stay, they're squatting, okay, they're taking over all the apartment space, everything, all the landscaping the back of the ice field. So it goes forward. And it can go to the front part where the irises of the color part of the eyes and blood vessels will start to grow there. And that's called Iris, Neo meaning new vascularisation. So Iris neovascularisation. So it's called envy I neovascularisation of the iris and the back of the eye. It's called, there's two things neovascularisation elsewhere and neovascularisation at the disk. So it's n VDNV and n vi that's easier than writing neovascularisation on a chart takes forever. My hand hurts. Yeah, that's

Dr. Ardis  21:16 

a great explanation. Now, before we go to commercial break here in a second, I'm actually show the audiences and you were going to review what the World Health Organization is publishing are going to be the expected outcomes for diabetes and diabetic retinopathy between now in the year 2050. Okay with that, yeah. All right. So let's take a look. And then in the next segment, after our commercial break, we're going to get into solutions, dietary solutions, what it is you see as a doctor that is concerning you in the current state of affairs of the world, and what our audiences need to know about their eye health where they can find you where they can find those solutions, because that's what we're all about. Alright, so let me just share with the audiences here this Alright, so this is the global prevalence by the American Academy of Ophthalmology they published recently, what's the global prevalence of diabetic retinopathy and their projection through the year 2045. All right, so in their results they include I'm gonna highlight it here for everybody can follow along, we included 59 population based studies among individuals with diabetes, global prevalence was 22%. Now we're gonna keep going in 2020, the number of adults worldwide with diabetic retinopathy, which is abbreviated dar was estimated to be 103.1 2 million people. 103 point 2 million worldwide Holy Cow by the year 2045. The numbers are projected to increase to 160 million people now. 166 Nope. 160 point 5 million diabetic retinopathy. They say prevalence was highest in Africa, in North America, and the Caribbean, and was lowest in South and Central America. Alright, so just so y'all know, this is a big deal. They say in the discussion, the global diabetic retinopathy burden is expected to remain very high through 2045, disproportionately affecting countries in the Middle East and North Africa, in the western Pacific. Why did they all of a sudden forget about North America? I don't know. But I just want you guys to set the stage for you guys. This is a big deal. Diabetes continues to be a big deal. And Did y'all see this? Let me see if I can pull this up. Have you all seen this the same document, but Have y'all seen that? The who just published that they expect? Let's see if I can find the link here. Actually, while we got this up? Have you seen that the World Health Organization just published that they expect diabetes by the year there is I think it is like this new estimates indicate that more than 1.3 billion people can be living with diabetes by the year 2050. Okay, this is the International Diabetes Federation. Now this is a this is a huge deal, because right now there's only 500 million in the whole world. This means there's going to be two and a half times the amount of diabetes they expect, since the pandemic started, they took all these numbers based on the exponential growth of diabetes in the last four years during COVID. Because they're causing it, they know how to cause it. We've discussed this many times because they know what they can, what they have introduced to the world, global envenomation and how they target nicotine receptors, these Venom's these spike proteins, and they actually shut off the beta cells in the pancreas his ability to produce insulin. So this is how they know they're doing this. This is why it's so important as a topic. Diabetes affects more than just the eyes. But I've got one of the coolest teachers I think in the eye sphere, who can correlate and educate our audiences on the impacts of diabetes and our eye health. Alright, so many people worldwide are going to struggle with diabetes, they're gonna have more weight loss, more overweight, higher BMI, more diabetes, higher a once the diagnosis and lab results over the next 427 years they expect than ever in the history of human beings. So the diabetes code the the Oh, the obesity code by Dr. Fung out of Canada, those books everybody should own. Anybody who's getting overweight and having issues with blood sugar. You can learn how to reverse your diabetes that way. For those of you who have low adults with diabetes it's being managed or unable to be managed. This is where you want to share this broadcast with them and get them to Dr. Seema Nanda in her office down in Houston. All right, we'll be right back after these messages

Dr. Ardis  25:15

Alright, Seema Nanda,

Dr. Seema Nanda  28:07 

springing back in I'm right in reeled in.

Dr. Ardis  28:10 

She drove here from Houston, she came up with this incredible idea of why because she's a creative professor of students of all ages, and she's got to come up with creative ways to get them to remember stuff. She's researching and applying to her patients in clinic. Alright, so what did you come up with?

Dr. Seema Nanda  28:25 

Well, as an entertainer, though, actually entertaining Yeah, educate through entertainment. So I was driving over here, my beautiful four hour drive, I'm actually here for an AI conference called AI con, literally, icon EY, e co. N. Anyway, so I have that lecture to give tomorrow. But as I was driving here, I'm thinking, how can I make this memorable? And the reason why I say that is because when I teach doctors, sometimes, once you've taken a class, you kind of forget about it afterward, right? That's most of us. And you're like, I remember for about two days. Well, I draw her here, and I thought, how can I explain the ABCs of treating diabetes? So that's how I renamed it so ABCs of treating diabetes. Okay, so she's good. So I just started talking to myself in a good way. And I thought, I don't think I could do 26 different accents, but I can do a few in between. So I'm going to start with the A, the letter A and how you can you know, instead of being addicted to addicted a to medicines, why don't we have food as medicine, and if you eat the right foods, you don't ever have to take a pill a shot an injection of venom of Gila monster poison.

Dr. Ardis  29:41 

If I could drop this mic I would drop so if if we can

Dr. Seema Nanda  29:45 

just start with letter A. One thing we easily can have is avocado especially being in Texas, we get avocados all the time. It actually has a protein avo caught tin T i n right? That actually helps I keep seeing it actually. because I'm still blown away, which actually helps decreasing, you're decreasing your lousy LDL, lousy Density Lipoprotein, which is one of the bad triglycerides or glycerides in the body and increasing your age your happy HDL. And it actually doesn't and it balances the body so you don't have to have and everyone says, Okay, well, if you have fats are bad. No, they're good fats, and they're bad fats. You want to say something? I can tell it. I can see it. Yeah. Can they just eat guacamole? Because totally guacamole. Yes, definitely. Because guacamole has not, that goes to l and I'll tell you that in a second else for limes because we need the vitamin C, and vitamin C also helps decrease tumourigenesis Which is, is G guacamole, know

Dr. Ardis  30:47 

what it let down. But

Dr. Seema Nanda  30:48 

we can put that in there just for you. So a for avocado as well as apple cider vinegar. Now you think Apple that sugar. When they ferment down the apple, it's only like one gram of sugar in there and it's pretty pungent. So it's like acetic acid and acetic acid is very good. It's vinegar. And so you don't want to drink the whole thing. You just put two teaspoons in your water eight ounce glass of water while you're drinking with your meal. And that will actually slow down the sugar getting stuck outside the body because it'll help the insulin. Pull out that sugar so you won't be so insulin resistant. Are we still at a we're still at a well,

Dr. Ardis  31:27 

you got 13 minutes left to get through Z. Okay,

Dr. Seema Nanda  31:29 

okay, it's not that far. Okay. A B? No, I'm sorry. B for Berry. So be for berries, berries, strawberries, blueberries, cranberries, they have anthocyanins, anthocyanins are good anything that causes a color. So any colored fruits and vegetables are a okay with me. So B for berries, and that includes see for cranberry, right? As well as something that you would want and high in fiber, which would be to chia. Do you remember to Yes, I do. Chia pets? Chia pets? Okay, well, go ahead.

Unknown Speaker  31:58 

I remember chia pet.

Dr. Seema Nanda  31:59 

But instead of putting it on, but you could eat the actual flowering stuff. Nobody did. And we just make the head of like, what's that artists from PBS Bob, something's name is Bob Ross. See, you can make a Bob Ross chia pet and then actually eat the seeds from it. Chia is high in fiber, which make you filled which will fill you up and it's actually good for you high in antioxidants. D for date palm sugar. Instead of having refined sugar. You can have date palm sugar, which is a natural sugar, which is what what we have in all our Indian desserts, right? Instead of refined sugar. We have date palm sugar, which is very, very good. There's my Indian accent I knew I was going to put in somewhere. Where do you where do you get date palm sugar, you can get it anywhere. Actually, I hate to say the other a word is on Amazon anyway. So you can get it there. You can get it anywhere grocery stores have it. Indian grocery stores have it. It's found everywhere. And you don't have to search for it. So D E, this is the best part. Eggs are good for you. They're very good. And you should be having one egg a day. Why eggs contain and this is going to be coincident with saving yourselves from any other viral protein molecule that shouldn't be in the body because it also it also contains choline. So choline receptors will be binding with these eggs and you can have six to 12 eggs in a week. And it's okay and it also the study showed in 2019 that it actually lowers bad cholesterol. What you've been told is wrong. Eggs are good and God made egg so don't make this egg white omelet. You need the yoke the yoke neutralizes the SARS cov.

Dr. Ardis  33:39 

Two bars just like are you saying we've been lied to?

Dr. Seema Nanda  33:41 

I'm saying there's a lot of fibbing going on. Okay, anyway, D for eggs, and F for fish, especially fatty fish. We want voluptuous fish. We want more fish with fat on there. Those omega three fats are good for the body. They're actually good for the eyes. You have clogged glands it'll open them up. It has things called and I you know I don't want to be willed or everyone but the GLA and dgla makes breaks down the body for the Costa hexanoic acid and Eicosapentaenoic acid I know big words, making up stuff making up big words or 13 letter long words are evil. But anyway, so all those things are actually anti inflammatory to the body. It decreases inflammation in the joints so if you got arthritic conditions, psoriatic conditions, it decreases inflammation in the entire body. So fish is good. So fatty fish, G not for not for guacamole, but can be Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is delicious. It's high in protein, it's less than sugar and it also allows the body to absorb and you should be drinking eating Greek yogurt every single day. Because they take away the all the sugar in the water in it they I don't know why exotic sugar and water because they're naturally sweet. Anyway, but you can add you can make Get something else. So G could be also for garlic because garlic is good for that. But I'm gonna save that for H. All right, so H is for honey. Now you say, Honey, wait, that's sugar. Why would you take sugar if you have diabetes now everything in moderation, you don't have to have too much. But actually honey, which we all know from our lovely beekeeper judgment, Dr. Schmidt Exactly. Honey is a natural anti immune response to the environment and you should get local honey. So if you're living in Texas and you're getting honey and Idaho, it's bees from Idaho's the flowers from there, it's not going to help you you need to help your immune response here in the state that you're in. So get local honey most specifically to the region that you're in because the flowers and the environment it will decrease your allergies to so that that's also plus. The other thing is there's a way you can make your immune system even stronger by G and age by adding garlic cloves of garlic into the honey, let it ferment for three months and you've got your own medicine there. And that's an autoimmune medicine just let it do it and and I always cycle mine through and I just take it with my teeth and you

Dr. Ardis  36:09 

have done this for years. I put garlic clove and

Dr. Seema Nanda  36:13 

let it ferment for three months. This is all your Vedic everything I'm telling you is going for this for I love it. Hundreds of years, centuries this has been going on. You'll never see anyone in India with Alzheimer's, it doesn't exist. Because we have all these natural spices and things in our food. We just eat what God gives us

Dr. Ardis  36:33 

such as the garlic due to the honey, how does it taste? After three months. So

Dr. Seema Nanda  36:37 

it's a it's a stronger honey. It's more potent, but it's not you. You can eat the garlic but I don't I chop it up and then I'll put it in food because it's too strong, but I'll just put two spoons of it and and make it like a hot tea. That's what I will do. And you can actually and you can have G for green tea because Green tea contains ECGC which is epi ketto can blow I can't so just say catechins which are also very good four ounces of green tea every day. They use that for patients with cancer. It kills cancer cells to saying green tea and white tea not fermented like black tea. Alright, so that's g h and I so I is for Iceberg lettuce iceberg well why does have to be iceberg like doesn't it just I that's all I can remember. So Iceberg lettuce, green leafy vegetables are your friend. Those are the things that are also going to help you heal and it's very good for digestion. So if you're eating bad foods, it'll clear out the system pretty quick. That's alright, let's

Dr. Ardis  37:33 

review go back to a way through it. Okay, so

Dr. Seema Nanda  37:35 

where are you view so A for apple cider vinegar, as well as avocado, B for berries, C for chia seeds, D for date, palm sugar, E for eggs, F for fatty fish, G for Greek yogurt, and I was doing my ABCs my head green G for Greek yogurt slash H for garlic and honey. I for Iceberg lettuce, green leafy vegetables. Now j is going to be a no juice. Do not drink juice, especially those that are processed in the store. If you're going to do juice, make your own get your own oranges and squeeze them out and put them in water and drink it yourself as your high vitamin C. We already know they have glass, Cliff glass like glyphosate in them, the pesticides, everything like that it'll kill you. And it's full of sugar. There is no nutritive value in getting juice that's processed outside, so no juice

Dr. Ardis  38:31 

Rahzel Did you ever see the term juice from concentrate on any of your stuff? Concentrate means they added sugar to it. I learned this somewhere actually, you know, I had a friend of mine that I grew up with in South Carolina, who became eventually a general manager of a Dole, oh, pineapple plantation and factory. And one day we were on a boat just hanging out like 20 years ago on a lake in South Carolina. And I asked him about his job and I said hey, I have a question. Is it true? I've heard a rumor that Dole and other juice companies that make juices and concentrated juices. I asked him a question. I said now you are the general manager of a pineapple plantation for dole in making juices. That's it. Is it true? That the reason why juice companies I have read and heard and different documentaries and books that they concentrate specific juices. And those fruits they decide to concentrate? are the ones they pick off the ground that fell off the trees and are bruised and rancid. Are those the ones they process and to concentrate forms of juices? And he looks at me on the boat and he goes I said Are they covering up all the rancidity of the fruit juices and the fruits with sugar and calling it from concentrate? And he looks at me and this is what he said Dr. Nanda, he said, Well if you owned a plantation of fruit orchards of fruits. Which ones would you turn into concentrated juices? I just would you pick off the trees or the bushes, which has the best fruit the most beautiful fruits to sell to grocery stores to put on their shelves? Would you choose those to crush squeezed into juice and add sugar? Or would you pick the ones on the ground and find a way to cover up it's considered

Dr. Seema Nanda  40:25 

oh my god, they're doling out doling, they're doling it out D O. L. Dole concentrate

Dr. Ardis  40:32 

means they add sugar to cover up their poison, nasty, rancid fruits, they're doling

Dr. Seema Nanda  40:36 

out the low hanging fruit to hear it so when you

Dr. Ardis  40:39 

see concentrate, don't do it. That is sugar added to cover up it's rancid. Exactly.

Dr. Seema Nanda  40:43 

Make it yourself to squeeze it out yourself. If you're arthritic, get a juicer, Jack littling juicer, right? I don't know. Anyway, check, okay, H i, j, k, k for Kale, another dark green leafy vegetable, also good for the eyes, it will help actually the production so if you anybody in family who has macular degeneration, another topic, but that's in the back of the eye, the center part of the seeing part of the eye, kale actually helps. And it helps with the lutein production, which is deficient in those patients, el flora, lemons and limes and anything that will have high vitamin C. So lemons and limes will also increase the vitamin C in the body. And those patients who are diabetic actually have lower amounts of vitamin C, and this is why they call them tumorigenic. Because diabetes actually goes hand in hand with cancer. Why does that happen? Because there's increased sugar in the body. And cancer loves sugar. What happens to your gut when your gut bacteria really like tastes that sugar? Just what you know, you have cravings, right? So all of a sudden, the gut bacteria in the body are like they they went to Halloween candy and they're like, Ooh, I liked that. And then all of a sudden, the next three days you just want sugar, sugar, sugar, because the gut bacteria who likes to sugar grows exponentially so you've got to quash it. So taking apple cider vinegar will quash that immediately. So if you have that sugar craving don't go to that go to a fermented food. Even Kim Chi that would be for k as well. Kimchi is really it's a fermented cabbage. I love kimchi. All right, l so m, m, is for macro or another fatty fish and this is also very good for you. Holy

Dr. Ardis  42:17 


Dr. Seema Nanda  42:18 

That's what I was gonna beat me to the punch. Do you always do because you were just you know, great minds think alike. Anyway, we are twins. Let's see. Only our mother could tell us apart. Anyway, all right. Yeah, similar. And this brings us to nuts. And for nuts, okay, specifically, almonds. No, guess what? Almonds are also high in choline. So we'll protect you from viral snake protein. Soy almonds are very good. And anybody who has these are like, Oh, I always overeat. Okay, why do you always overeat because you see food seafood diet you see food you eat it right? So instead of seafood like being seafood. So what you can do again, Lucky number seven because we all know seven is complete, you can take seven almonds only seven don't want any more than that because it produces too much heat in the body. Again I are Vedic at you want to take seven almonds before you eat your meal. This will give the body enough time to get the insulin out to process the food so by the time you are going to eat you don't feel the need to eat so much so it slows that down. And that helps because it also has a protein so nuts another is walnuts. Walnuts are great for you. Now if you do cashews, you have to do less like five cashews because it's a little bit too much fat. And same with macadamia nuts. If you do that you can only have three same with Brazil nuts, you can only have three you can't have more than that because the body doesn't want it you you actually get diarrhea if you have too much. Just let you know. Alright, so just

Dr. Ardis  43:47 

getting it down to one minute. All right,

Dr. Seema Nanda  43:48 

so Oh for olive oil, olive oil is your medicine if you want to take a medicine, this actually stimulates the GLP hormone which is the one that stops which is the one that the ozempic acts and all the other poisons that are out there you have a monster deficiency Rahila monster deficiency so instead of taking ozempic which stimulates the same GLP one hormone, you can take two teaspoons of olive oil every day and that's going to protect you P for pomegranate because pomegranates antioxidant has the anthocyanins Q for qinhuai Because kin was just like the chia seeds for fiber are for radish because it has that bitter taste to it so it's good for you. t for t t for tea. You for unsweetened dark chocolate because dark chocolate is good for you but only in small amounts. V for vegetables. We everybody has to have their vegetables, especially cruciferous vegetables, because they look like the cross crucifix. So any food that looks like the cross, broccoli, cauliflower brussel sprouts, all those cruciferous vegetables, drink your water W exercise and get your z's. Thanks.

Dr. Ardis  44:56 

You actually did have you had all A's. Okay, good.

Dr. Seema Nanda  44:59 

Oh, By the way, driving over here, that

Dr. Ardis  45:01 

was phenomenal. That was really wonderful. Alright, so in the last minute I want you to do something I want you to explain to the audience is when patients come to you and they have diabetes and diabetic retinopathy you determine, is there something that people are typically taking for diabetes they've been prescribed. And then I want you to just talk real quickly about those medications that are being prescribed, if any, is their diabetes, or diabetic retinopathy being caused by those prescription drug deficiencies. Because out of your A through Z recommendations for food, I didn't hear a single thing about a drug being named as one of the A through Z alphabet requirements for diabetes.

Dr. Seema Nanda  45:34 

Actually, it's funny that you say that because the first thing I write on a prescription pad, literally, I write it on every prescription pad, when I find out a patient has diabetes, and they said, get a dog. What does this mean? I said, Go get a dog because then you'll get off your butt and walk that dog. So that's what I tell a patient to do. Get off all the medications because these meds why are they on them for their lifetime? If it's actually fixing the problem, then they would be off of it after six months or three months or Bridger. Anyway, yeah, system breach anyway. So what I'm saying is yes, does it cause even worse, I believe that ozempic and all these other drugs might be actually causing more problems with the patient. And a new drug just got approved this last week tears that applied, or whatever it is, it's the same family, and they're about three more of that same family drugs that are coming out. Well, now

Dr. Ardis  46:18 

that you brought it up. Have you not seen that ozempic will go V in these GLP. One targeting drugs made from here, the monster venom, every single one of them states that diabetic retinopathy is worse, increasing and increasing speed of blindness and people with diabetes, and these are drugs being promoted for diabetes. So just know,

Dr. Seema Nanda  46:37 

well, because they're losing their weight. They're losing weight. For side effects. Yeah, they're losing the weight. So they feel all excited about that. But they're not understanding the side effects of the effect of the drug. So it's very dangerous.

Dr. Ardis  46:48 

All right, Dr. Seema Nanda, we got to wrap up this episode. Now I need you to tell the audiences where they're going to find you.

Dr. Seema Nanda  46:53 

All right. So thank you again, Dr. Brian, artists for allowing me to come into your living room and share my few words of wisdom and getting people to see to the right and making sure everybody knows what to do. So I am out of Houston, Texas, at the Nanda dry I envision Institute, which I started during the pandemic, yes, you heard it, no plan demic. And it is starting to flourish. thanks to people like Dr. Brian and all the other doctors out there who are trying to get the message to everyone. So I'm in Houston, Texas, just google me at www doc, the OC, Nanda n a n d a.com. And I look forward to seeing you

Dr. Ardis  47:31 

love it. Now. I want you to say one thing and ask you a question on behalf of everybody watching. Is there a scenario with people's vision whatsoever that you would say you should not seek my help for?

Dr. Seema Nanda  47:42 

The only problem is when I fix you, I never get to see you again.

Dr. Ardis  47:45 

Amen to that. So if you're sitting there wondering, I wonder if she could help me

Dr. Seema Nanda  47:48 

I probably can. And if if I can't, I'll find somebody who can. But there's, if there's a way, I'll find it.

Dr. Ardis  47:58 

A nd Dr. Seema Nanda I trust all right. I'm Dr. Ardis is Dr. Ardis show sick. Goodbye.

Dr. Seema Nanda  48:04 

Goodbye, Tally Ho, it was lovely meeting y'all again.

Dr. Ardis  48:11 

All right, we're out. That was too much fun. All right. God bless you all. We'll see you next week.
