My Theory on Dementia, Blood Pressure & Stroke

Published on Mar 15, 2015

Dosages to try:
  • Healthy normal person - Vitamin D3 (10,000 IUs) + Vitamin K2 (MK-7) (100mcg) per day
  • Unhealthy person - Vitamin D3 (30,000 IUs) + Vitamin K2 (MK-7) (300mcg) per day
Vitamin D and K2 work together and help to mobilize calcium. You may want to consume both vitamins, in the morning with butter or coconut oil for better absorption (due to being fat soluble). Vitamin D3 is about absorption of calcium and vitamin K2 is about directing where calcium goes - both working together to keep your arteries and soft tissues clean and your bones strong.

Unless you have osteoporosis, I would not recommend taking extra calcium. Instead consume some cheese on a daily basis. Most of the calcium in the body is recycled so adding more, is not needed. Never consume calcium carbonate (limestone) as your calcium.

If you take calcium and vitamin D without K2, you may be in danger of excess calcium build up - calcification of your vessels. Yet K2 is a powerful inhibitor of calcification of soft tissues.

K2 is present in:
  • grass-fed beef, yogurt, cheese, butter 
  • goose liver 
  • hard cheese and brie 
  • grass-fed egg yolks 
  • Sauerkraut (raw) 
  • grass-fed kefir 
  • Kimchi

How High Blood Pressure Causes Strokes

Published on Aug 27, 2013

How hypertension increases your risk of stroke? The strain hypertension places on all your blood vessels makes them weaken and predisposes them to damage. Your heart also has to work harder to keep your blood circulating.

Once your blood vessels weaken they are more likely to block. This can cause an ischemic stroke and hypertension is the most important cause of this type of stroke and also transient ischemic attacks.

Less often, hypertension is implicated in hemorrhagic strokes when a blood vessel in the brain bursts and blood leaks into the brain.
