  1. I have had swollen tonsils all my life. I was a borderline case as a child to have my tonsils removed (late 1960s and early 1970s) but my pediatrician said I needed them because they catch infection to spare other parts of the body, especially the heart because it is close to the tonsils. I have had a functional heart murmur all my life so he was reluctant to do it. I still have my tonsils today in my mid 50s and glad I do. Doctors were different then than they are today. It was not all about how many patients they could go through in a day and how many surgeries they could get then. They spent time with their patients in appointments, asked and knew about your life, and gave sensible advice, like rest before prescribing pharmaceutical drugs. Prescriptions were for when it was absolutely necessary, not the default go-to as it is today.

  2. Does anyone else who has tosils in these comments cause I do but only small ones. Two more times I have tonsils I have to get my tonsils out and I am REALLY SCARED cause it's beside my neck so the doctor has to use a knife.

  3. Hi Dr. Berg! I'd like to know when is the right time to take the wheatgrass juice powder and the other supplements if you're doing OMAD and you don't want to interrupt the IF protocol? Thanks

  4. So many amazing videos I follow hourly lol How about a video on the root cause of most diseases is it leaky gut before the organ fails is it Candida ?? The root root cause of most ailments?

  5. I had Epstein bar as a teenager and years of tonsil/adenoids problems as a child.
    I used the tool on my neck and the relief was amazing. Years of accumulated stress from that area went.

  6. 5 of my kids got theirs out due to them being too big. They had a hard time swallowing food and choking on it. They also were snorers, mouth breathers and had very smelly breath but that all stopped when they had them removed. My other 6 kids have normal tonsils and never had tonsillitis.

  7. I’d like to know more about the science of the idea of when a fat cell is created. I have heard that a fat cell cannot be eliminated, but only shrunk. I have heard that when doing ketosis and shrinking fat cells you need to drink a lot of water to flush out the fat and replace it within the cells. That you get it out and basically excrete it through the urine. I’d like to have an explanation of how the fat cell is created in the first place, the reasons why you cannot get rid of them, the science of shrinking and why the high amount of water is so important.

  8. What are the differences in vitamin D2 and vitamin D3? I am on RX of vitamin D2 of 50,000IU…. ALTHOUGH. every time I see anything about vitamin D… it’s always referring to D3. Has the dr prescribed the wrong vitamin? Lolololol….I never see about D2 anywhere. Lol.

  9. The benefits of acv capsules vs avc drink…. and if the drink is better benefits….. more options to get it down more easily. It’s sooooo disgusting!!!! I’m taking all natural capsules now, but if the drink is better benefits please say. Thanks.

  10. Cleaning out food particles stuck in the tonsils helps while it is still loose. Comedone Extractor is useful. I use qutips and gently press above the extraction point to squeeze out food particles that are lodged in there. Gargle salt water.

  11. How resourceful are herbs and spices for providing nutrients? What would be the five top must haves for the kitchen? Do all the cure claims stack up?

  12. I had a tonsillectomy at age 14 because I kept getting strep throat several times a year since I was about 6yrs of age. I havent had strep throat ever since, so I see that its good in some cases to have tonsils removed, it just depends upon each person. 🙂 Great video btw

  13. I gotta say, I had an AWFUL case of tonsillitis with an abscess on the left side and let me tell you, you're lucky if you can even manage to sip water every half hour let alone gargle….if you haven't gone through it you wont understand. The pain is literally debilitating…..every time I tried gargling I would just end up gagging and vomiting because they were so swollen….just get them bad boys out if you can…
