Transcript Summary

Introductions @ 0:00

Melissa introduced Sheherazade, an MD and PhD passionate about holistic health. Sheherazade discussed her journey from medicine to research on nutrition's role in wellness.

Vitamin K2 and cardiovascular health @ 1:00

Sheherazade explained vitamin K2 mobilizes calcium in arteries and bones, preventing calcification. K2 from fermented foods benefits heart and bone health by keeping calcium in bones rather than arteries.

Stress and the autonomic nervous system @ 13:00

Stress impacts the autonomic nervous system, with chronic stress harming the heart. Managing stress through relaxation supports balance between sympathetic "fight or flight" and parasympathetic "rest and digest" modes.

Coronary artery disease and atherosclerosis @ 19:40

Sheherazade detailed how inflammation and imbalances can damage artery walls, leading cholesterol to patch wounds and eventually harden plaques if healing is prolonged. Prevention through nutrition protects small blood vessels supplying the heart.

Hormones and homeostasis @ 24:00

Hormones communicate homeostasis, the body's balanced state. Vitamins D3 and K2 act as hormones for immune, heart, bone and skin health by facilitating calcium movement; balancing them prevents excess calcium deposits.

Fermented foods and vitamin K2 sources @ 32:00

Historically, grass-fed animals provided vitamin K2 but modern diets lack it. Fermented foods boost K2 intake, supporting Sheherazade's research developing a fermented chickpea powder to naturally supplement this missing nutrient.

Prevention over treatment @ 39:00

Studies show vitamin K2 reverses artery blockage within months, indicating coronary artery disease is reversible through prevention over late-stage treatment. Sheherazade advocates lifestyle changes to maintain cardiovascular health and harmony.
