00:12 Every year in America there are over 1 million deaths
00:14 because of type 2 diabetes and chronic obesity.
00:17 This includes heart attacks and strokes.
00:20 That's six and a half 747s crashing everyday.
00:23 What's even more surprising is that the fix is easy.
00:27 It's your lifestyle.
00:28 Wouldn't it be nice if you could actually
00:30 add quality years to your life
00:31 rather than dying one organ at a time?
00:34 Obesity and diabetes are the cause
00:36 of over million deaths per year.
00:39 Most diseases are reversible.
00:41 Because most diseases are lifestyle diseases,
00:44 especially, type 2 diabetes, and chronic obesity.
00:47 Seriously now, they can be reversed
00:49 and the quality of your life can be renewed.
00:53 Call Newstart today at 1800-525-9192.
00:59 You will see dramatic changes
01:01 in the first few days of our program.
01:03 And you will be on the road to a better,
01:04 more robust quality of life.
01:07 The Newstart programs are simple and effective.
01:12 Hi friends and welcome
01:14 to another edition of Newstart Now.
01:16 I want to show you a clip of one--
01:19 a young lady arrived here at the Newstart program,
01:23 Trini Regalado and stay with us
01:26 'cause at the end of the show after we interview with Trini,
01:30 we've a special clip for you on attitude.
01:35 So let's take a look at when Trini first arrived.
01:39 I came here because some say,
01:41 you know, and I have multiple sclerosis.
01:46 And I got that dose and over 25 years ago.
01:51 And the last three years
01:53 it's real difficult for me just to walk.
01:57 The most thing that I miss a lot is not walking.
02:01 This is like real bad you know, this is like a, you know,
02:05 it's like being taken something away
02:07 from me not walking.
02:10 You know, you can walk real good
02:12 and then it all like be dependable like,
02:15 okay, you know,
02:17 if I want to go some place I can't.
02:20 You know before if I want to go to the store,
02:22 I just pick the car and I go to the grocery store
02:26 or do some shopping and the shopping
02:28 and now I can't.
02:31 If my husband doesn't take me,
02:33 I can go no where.
02:35 The first thing I went with my heart
02:38 and I ask God just give me license,
02:42 this way my kids can grow up.
02:46 This is that the only thing that I want.
02:50 Now I'm here in a one, and our friend you know,
02:55 real good friend, he came over to our shop
02:59 and he's working with us and he told me he said,
03:03 you know what, you should go over there.
03:06 'Cause when you go over there you know,
03:09 you're gonna be a different person.
03:13 Welcome back friends in our studio,
03:15 Trini, how are you?
03:19 Well, I'd like to ask you a few questions.
03:21 I know that I'm excited about you
03:24 being here for several reasons.
03:26 When you got here and as the interview,
03:29 the first interview suggests
03:31 you're dealing with multiple sclerosis,
03:33 is that correct?
03:35 And you had high blood pressure.
03:37 Yes, I had, I had multiple sclerosis
03:42 and I also had high blood pressure.
03:47 How has the Newstart program,
03:53 how's it dealing with the MS?
03:56 Do you see any change,
03:58 I know when you got here, you could barely walk.
04:01 You were in a wheel chair and tell me a little about
04:05 how you're feeling about your condition?
04:08 When I came over here,
04:10 you know, they actually I was walking a little bit and,
04:15 but just to go, you know,
04:17 places like for example go to the shopping center
04:20 or go you know, to the parks,
04:23 you know I will use our wheel chair
04:26 because I'm not able to walk you know, distance.
04:31 Now after being here for two weeks,
04:36 over two weeks on this program
04:40 and the first thing you know,
04:42 when we came over here I told my husband,
04:46 you know what Mike, if I can just you know,
04:49 give it up at my high blood pressure
04:51 it will be worth it.
04:53 Because you know,
04:54 when people have some medications,
04:57 you never stop taking it.
04:59 I never see a people, a person they actually
05:02 you know, they'd lower the doses.
05:04 Never, it always go higher and higher and higher.
05:08 And what happen,
05:09 your risks they are actually you know,
05:12 bigger to get heart attack
05:14 or get something like that, you know.
05:16 And to those things they actually
05:19 you know it's the heart and cancer.
05:22 And what I was dealing is the heart.
05:25 So the second day I was here
05:30 and they want to check my pressure
05:34 and actually I went to 140.
05:37 And I decided just to stop the medication
05:40 and ever since I've not taken the blood pressure--
05:43 All right, so the second day you were here,
05:46 you stopped the high blood pressure medication.
05:49 Your blood pressure went down since then.
05:54 You're no longer taking blood pressure medication.
05:56 No, I'm not taking the medication
05:59 and also I know what to eat,
06:02 so I don't get back to the medication.
06:05 If I start eating the way I was eating before,
06:09 there was no way I'm gonna get rid of that blood pressure.
06:12 So what you've learned is for the food
06:16 to be your medication.
06:18 The food that they, you know we eat here,
06:22 they actually is the one you know,
06:26 they change you know,
06:28 in your system and I got rid of it,
06:30 you know, the medication.
06:32 And also they'll teach you to,
06:34 you know, how to do exercise and they give you massage,
06:37 and a lot of things to go with the program
06:40 and I'm real happy with this.
06:41 I'm glad. I'm so happy to hear that.
06:44 I want to talk to you about your MS now,
06:48 but I want to say to the audience
06:50 that's watching the program right now,
06:52 you know Trini just described to us
06:56 what has happened just for changing
06:59 a simple thing like her food intake.
07:03 Of course, there are other factors
07:05 which we'll get into as the shows go on
07:09 in the weeks to come,
07:11 we will talk about the basic eight elements
07:16 of the Newstart program.
07:18 But let's talk about you right now, the MS.
07:22 Now, there are lot of people who don't know what MS is.
07:26 I'm not sure I totally understand it.
07:28 But I do know when I see the affects
07:31 that it had on you when you got here,
07:33 you couldn't walk.
07:34 You went down to the clinic which is about a 100,
07:38 maybe a 100 yards from the lodge
07:42 and you had to stop and rest three times you told me.
07:46 Well, the first time when I got here
07:48 my husband took me in a wheel chair.
07:50 But he just actually you know,
07:52 he went and then I'll check in the,
07:55 his phone you know, to see the distance.
07:59 And actually it's a quarter mile.
08:01 Quarter mile?
08:02 Quarter mile, we have to,
08:04 I have to walk you know from our room to the clinic
08:09 and that's a quarter mile and first,
08:11 you know, when I got here
08:12 actually he took me in the wheel chair.
08:15 And the second time when I went I had to take,
08:20 you know, I have to stop three times and rest.
08:23 And yesterday I went to the clinic
08:28 and then from the clinic to the diner
08:30 and then to my room and it was half a mile
08:34 that I walk and I only rest one time.
08:38 So, you know, this have been helping me a lot.
08:41 For example when I lay down
08:44 I can move more easy you know to turn
08:47 and also to get up in the morning.
08:49 Now, Trini, let me stop you for a minute.
08:53 I have to say this, when you came here
08:55 and you just said on camera,
08:59 you'd be satisfied if the blood pressure dropped.
09:03 Not only did the blood pressure dropped
09:05 but your MS is getting better, is what you're saying.
09:08 Is that correct?
09:09 Yes, I can do a lot of more things and more easy.
09:13 Like for example, my problem is my right side.
09:16 And when I came over here in the morning,
09:20 I used to sometimes cry
09:22 because I can't even pull my shoe up.
09:25 And now in the morning I pull my socks
09:31 and then I put my shoe
09:33 and then it'll take me like not even,
09:39 it take me just like less than a minute to do it.
09:42 Before it was so hard.
09:44 Another thing, you know, it is like a,
09:47 you know, went out when I was laying down,
09:51 you know, I can turn the long--
09:55 you know, turns on in the morning,
09:56 at 5'o clock in the morning.
09:58 And the first week it was so hard for me
10:01 to reach to turn off you know, the alarm.
10:04 And now I can do it really easy, real easy.
10:07 So that means I have, I move better.
10:11 And also I can tell that my legs
10:14 you know, it has a lot less inflammation.
10:17 Praise God.
10:18 So I asked the doctor Louis,
10:20 you know, I have my tube fibrillator
10:25 and then you know, he said oh yeah,
10:27 because all the inflammation is going down.
10:30 Just, you know, and I asked them
10:32 what I had to do?
10:33 They said, just continue what are you eating here
10:35 and doing the exercise and that's all you have to do.
10:39 So I'm real happy with the program
10:41 and I recommend everybody to come over here.
10:45 Would you do me a favor? Sure.
10:46 Would you look into that camera
10:48 and tell your friends in Spanish,
10:52 what you just said.
10:54 ( speaking in foreign language )
11:39 Thank you so much.
11:41 Now your doctors, who again?
11:44 Dr. Lukens? Lukens.
11:46 Dr. Richards. Richard Lukens, yes.
11:49 We're gonna be interviewing him in just a little while
11:53 but I just want to take this last few minutes
11:56 just to praise the Lord
11:58 and thank you for joining us here in the studio
12:03 and being willing to share your testimony.
12:06 Okay. Thank you so much.
12:07 Thank you for having me.
12:10 Don't go away 'cause Dr. Lukens
12:11 will be with us in just a moment.
12:44 Welcome back, friends
12:45 and in our studio Dr. Rick Lukens.
12:48 Good to see you doctor.
12:49 Yeah, it's good to see you.
12:50 As usual. Yes.
12:52 You know, lot of our viewers know
12:55 who you are and many of them don't,
12:57 so I just like to talk about you
12:59 for just maybe a minute.
13:00 And I know you don't like to do this
13:02 but I-- it's my request.
13:05 So you have been here-- Okay.
13:08 You've been here
13:09 at the Newstart program for 25 years.
13:14 And I know that you go to Africa
13:18 now and then and you have a clinic there
13:21 that you've been ministering
13:22 through the African nationals for 40 years or how long is it?
13:29 Well, it was 15 years where we were in Africa 15
13:32 before we came here so it's going on then, yeah.
13:35 Yeah, it's about 40 years.
13:37 And I also have heard you
13:39 speak of the African nation as you know them.
13:44 Nations, yeah.
13:45 Yeah, nations have very few heart attacks
13:52 or cardio vascular events.
13:54 Yeah, of all kinds of things.
13:57 If they are in out there doing what they need to do,
14:01 they're not gonna survive.
14:03 So even traumatic injuries
14:09 and all kinds of stuff that you think
14:10 well, that persons is not ever gonna be
14:12 able to use that extremity again.
14:14 They do whatever they have to do.
14:17 They are still there, they are amazing.
14:19 Yeah, it really is amazing.
14:20 We don't see more of this in the media.
14:23 I mean, how other countries live a healthy style
14:28 because of what they eat and the exercise they do.
14:31 Well, then on the other hand you know,
14:33 people are gonna say, well, I saw pictures of those,
14:36 that women and the children and they look like sticks
14:39 and I'm never gonna look like that.
14:41 You see, the thing is that there is all this ethnics,
14:45 cleansing and all these fights
14:47 and stuff going on and they will just,
14:50 you know, whole groups of people
14:51 who'd be just starved to death
14:53 and then their children those plants based food
14:56 that they are eating are very healthy for them
14:59 but they don't understand sanitation.
15:01 So they'll have diarrhea with blood in,
15:02 maybe four, five, eight times
15:04 by the time they are two years of age.
15:07 That they can't recover from that
15:08 and then all the parasites and everything so,
15:11 no, it's not their diets, it's not their lifestyle,
15:14 it's that they don't understand,
15:16 you know, how to take care of themselves
15:18 as far as that goes.
15:19 Okay, well, forgive me for taking
15:23 so much time about Africa,
15:25 your past but I like to talk about Trini now.
15:29 Trini got here, she was in a wheel chair,
15:34 I don't know that she can even walk.
15:37 But I remember asking her to come for the first interview
15:41 which we just saw and I met her up at the lodge
15:48 which is about a 100 yards from the clinic,
15:51 and says I'll meet you at the clinic.
15:53 I went back down to the clinic
15:55 and 20 minutes later she wasn't there.
15:58 So I started to go up and she was about half way.
16:01 She was trying to walk. Yeah, yeah.
16:04 Can you tell me what has transpired now?
16:07 Has she able to walk, has she done with the wheel chair.
16:11 You know, first of all what is her problem?
16:15 Multiple sclerosis and most people know it as MS.
16:20 We don't know in medicine everything
16:22 that we'd like to know and anyway that's a disease
16:28 that probably it's autoimmune.
16:32 There's something to do with body attacking itself,
16:36 it's kind of like the insulation on the wires.
16:39 Our nerves are our wires
16:41 and when that's off, then you can see
16:46 it's kind of like short-circuiting them.
16:48 And if a person, you know, just kind of settles down
16:52 and takes all the medications
16:53 and stuff that they can
16:54 then probably they will be in a wheel chair.
16:58 Maybe in five years
17:00 one of my schoolmates in college
17:03 he dies after 10, 15 years,
17:06 wheel chairs and bedfast and then the other.
17:10 There's other ones where the body attacks itself.
17:13 A systemic lupus erythematosus, that's where the body--
17:19 we've had more experience with that,
17:20 we've had some experience with the MS as well.
17:23 But we can just tell people with that
17:27 as they do this lifestyle changes
17:31 especially when they become totally vegan
17:33 and in two years they can be off
17:35 of all their medications.
17:38 The test turnout normal and they can just say,
17:42 well, I used to have it, which is you know,
17:46 that's not something that you can say.
17:48 With MS it's a little bit different,
17:51 it's actually more severe in many respects
17:55 and the thing is that
17:57 they are into health food stores
18:01 and this kind of stuff they've some stuff down
18:04 and just outside the bay area there.
18:07 And it's very interesting
18:09 because she was doing all this stuff
18:11 and she was on a really good program,
18:16 they were eating their fruits and vegetables and pretty much,
18:20 you know, what we would say
18:23 may be almost vegan vegetarian anyway
18:26 and then she's 25 years out you see.
18:30 Yeah, that's a no, no.
18:31 So I asked her, I said, how did you get,
18:35 how're you still functioning at 25 years.
18:39 Now the medical community knows that they go into remission
18:43 and then they exacerbates again and they get bad and so forth.
18:47 So that's not so impressive to rheumatology and so forth.
18:54 But hers was and then when she was told,
18:57 hey, you've to get some really good proteins,
19:00 you've got to go to the animal products,
19:01 you've got to eat some of the flesh foods
19:03 to get a really good protein
19:06 so that your body can be healthy.
19:09 And when she started doing that,
19:11 she just started going down faster and faster.
19:15 So with her MS as we've seen other people
19:19 kind of progress once they've come here
19:23 and I've seen some progress with her.
19:25 Make progress, you mean not progress in their disease.
19:28 Yes, that's what I meant.
19:30 Yeah, thank you for clearing that.
19:33 Do you see her someday not needing a walker?
19:38 Can she reach that point?
19:40 We know it was very interesting
19:41 because at first, you know, she's a very resilient person
19:46 and she doesn't just complain all the time,
19:49 you caught that for me too.
19:50 Yeah, yeah.
19:51 She tries to be happy and that be
19:53 but the thing is that
19:55 what was so interesting about her
19:58 was that she was now getting to the place
20:01 where she was giving up hope
20:03 because she thought she was doing the right thing,
20:06 but she was doing this, she said, you know,
20:11 I can move my head more now and my muscles
20:13 and yes, she was actually able to start walking
20:17 and she would have to sit down sometimes
20:19 but you know her whole spirits lifted in
20:23 and her husband was happier too, you know.
20:25 Her husband, I'm so glad he was here,
20:28 he was a good support and she's done so well,
20:31 and we will follow up with her
20:34 and encourage her in anyway we can.
20:38 Now there's a website to people if they want to know
20:41 what is all this stuff and everything,
20:44 John McDougall, he's in this
20:46 and Bay Area over in Santa Rosa and so forth.
20:51 On his website he talks about MS
20:53 and there is something called Swank, Swank diet.
20:58 And people are following that
21:00 and he's followed some of them
21:02 for 35 plus years and that's amazing.
21:10 We've seen Dr. McDougall
21:12 and we've heard many of his lectures.
21:15 There's also another doctor, Dr. McGregor
21:18 where you could go to his website--
21:21 And he talks about MS as well?
21:23 Oh, he talks about everything under the sun.
21:27 And not just from a doctor's point of view
21:29 but more of a scientific point of view.
21:33 It generally equates to
21:35 and not limited to just lifestyle
21:38 but basically lifestyle.
21:41 Doctor, I want to take this last moment
21:43 to thank you for coming on the program.
21:45 It's great.
21:46 That's always a blessing to see you here.
21:48 Thank you.
21:49 And don't go away friends
21:50 because Dr. Randy Bivens will be right with us
21:53 within an important tip.
22:01 Hi, I'm Dr. Randy Bivens.
22:03 Thomas Jefferson once wrote that,
22:05 "Nothing can stop the man
22:07 with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal."
22:10 Nothing on earth can help the man
22:12 with the wrong mental attitude.
22:15 More currently, the popular motivational speakers
22:18 Zig Ziglar said, "It's not your aptitude
22:21 but your attitude that determines your altitude."
22:26 Attitude, there are literally thousands of studies
22:29 and articles discussing the impact attitude has
22:32 on aging and longevity.
22:35 In a review of 160 published medical studies
22:38 it was shown that people had a positive mental attitude
22:42 enjoyed better health and longer lives.
22:46 This link between positive mindset,
22:49 better health, and longer lifespan
22:51 was actually shown to be stronger
22:54 than the link between obesity, and reduced lifespan.
22:58 Let's look at some examples
23:00 of how our attitude can affect us.
23:03 One medical study looked at the relationship
23:05 between anger and heart disease.
23:08 The participants who demonstrated more anger
23:11 were found to have 2.7 times more heart disease
23:15 than the calmer participants.
23:18 Another study found that people
23:20 who often felt anxious, unhappy
23:22 or depressed were twice as likely
23:25 to have high blood pressure.
23:27 And in yet another study feelings of frustration,
23:30 tension and sadness were associated
23:32 with a doubled risk of ischemic heart disease.
23:36 Increased rates of heart attack were found in those
23:38 who tend to worry with the heaviest worriers
23:41 increasing their risk for heart attack
23:43 by two and a half times.
23:46 The evidence is clear
23:48 when we consider this alarming numbers,
23:50 it is much easier to recognize the pure
23:53 and positive value of the serenity prayer.
23:56 The serenity prayer simply asks God
23:59 to grant me the serenity
24:01 to accept the things I cannot change;
24:04 courage to change the things I can;
24:07 and wisdom to know the difference.
24:10 So what can we do to brighten our outlook on life?
24:14 What can we do to improve our attitudes
24:16 and in return gain more thriving
24:18 and fulfilling years of life?
24:22 Wake up early.
24:23 By getting up early we can get
24:25 a head start on our daily tasks.
24:28 That will reduce our stress.
24:30 We'll also have time for healthy breakfast,
24:32 improving both our world view and our health
24:36 at the very beginning of our day.
24:39 Exercise will do your brain and body a lot of good.
24:43 Nature has been shown to have
24:44 a calming influence on you psyche.
24:47 So spend some active time outdoors,
24:49 enjoying the natural beauty that God has created.
24:54 Plan ahead.
24:56 When you know what you're planning
24:57 to achieve in a given day a week,
24:59 you will have less stress.
25:01 By the way this works particularly well
25:04 if you remember to wake up early.
25:08 Understand that things often do not go according to plan.
25:12 Yes, planning ahead is good
25:14 but when something doesn't workout as planned,
25:16 it's important to view the situation
25:18 as an opportunity rather than a road block.
25:23 Get spiritually connected.
25:25 As we've shown in earlier videos
25:28 having a relationship with God
25:30 and being involved at church
25:32 plays significant roles in overall mental attitude
25:35 and can significantly add to your lifespan.
25:39 Be thankful.
25:41 Have you ever heard the phrase,
25:42 "When life feeds you waves, learn how to surf."
25:47 No matter what we can always find things to be thankful for.
25:51 Try spending less time focusing on yourself
25:54 and more time focusing on others.
25:57 This sort of outward thinking can go far
26:01 in improving your own mental health.
26:04 Spend time around positive people.
26:07 Perhaps it goes without saying
26:09 but we often mirror
26:10 the emotions of those around us.
26:13 Consider who you surround yourself with.
26:16 Make the conscious decision to be around people
26:18 who add cheer and love to your life.

26:26 to have ever lived once wrote,
26:28 "A joyful heart is good medicine."
26:32 He reiterate this later writing,
26:34 "For the happy heart, life is a continual feast."
26:40 In our goal to live longer and more fulfilling lives,
26:44 attitude maybe the most powerful medicine
26:47 that I as a physician can prescribe.
