This video is a summary of an important paper that blew me away.

Three of the leading causes of death:
• Heart disease
• Cancer
• Metabolic illnesses

With each of these causes of death, there is some type of dysfunction that destroys the mitochondria. The essence of the problem is an excess of oxidative stress and free radical damage.

Normally, the body protects against these things through its antioxidant networks. Glutathione has been considered the most important antioxidant. But, melatonin is even more powerful and effective than glutathione.

Benefits of melatonin:
• It’s a powerful antioxidant
• It’s 2x more powerful than vitamin E
• It triggers antioxidants like glutathione
• It promotes sleep
• It supports the immune system
• It has anti-cancer benefits

There are two forms of melatonin, one being subcellular melatonin, which means it’s inside the mitochondria. It’s there to help protect against oxidation and free radical damage in the mitochondria.

A lack of melatonin can:
• Affect your sleep
• Cause inflammation
• Cause you to lose your antioxidant protection in the mitochondria
• Lead to chronic degenerative diseases (especially of the brain)

The largest stimulus of subcellular melatonin is near-infrared light (NIR).
A few things that give off NIR:
• The sun
• Campfires
• Fire in a fireplace
• Candles
• Incandescent lights
• Infrared sauna
• Infrared lights and lasers

Being outside in nature and in the sun may be just as important as eating healthy. Infrared light also protects against UV radiation.

Being exposed to artificial lights (LED light and blue light) is a big cause of a deficiency of infrared light.

What you can do:
• Get outside in the sun
• Get a therapeutic near-infrared light
• Switch your lights to incandescent lights
• Have more fires or use candles

  1. Gosh, I wonder how my grandmother lived until age 99, when she'd heard nothing about any of this ? My sister is a doctor, and she writes for the National Health Magazines; Says if you take too much Melatonin, your body NATURALLY stops making its own. Like the dr. to explain that one for me ? Too bad we can't find REAL foods to eat anymore; everything pre boxed with extra salt, white flour and sugars ? Waiting for your reply Dr. Berg. Thanks.

  2. Excellent!!!, Dr. Berg, this is the first time , I've seriously sat down and listened to your video, you give some very insightful information , there isn't many I would subscribe too , but you I would, thankyou!😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄

  7. Thank you so much for this video. This may be my solution for sleep issues. Can you recommend a good Infrared Lamp? I would definitely be interested. Sounds like I need to replace fluorescent bulbs as well.

  8. A discussion on supplements and which could interact or overlap with each other and prescription meds. For example, I like the benefits of black seed oil, NAC, turmeric and boron, D3 etc. Should some not be taken with others?

  9. Because I live in one of the most gloomy and cloud covered area of continental U.S., I recognized many years ago how moody and low energy I feel nearly 8 months a year. I've never heard of the IR factor. Thanks so much for this information. I'm ordering the NIR therapy lamps.

  10. Much appreciated. You’ve motivated me to start making some changes. We are a society drowning in our technology. Walk through the Mall, Gym, Market etc. heads down in their devises. I’m going to pas this on to others. Happy Healthy New Year 👏🙏🏼🌟💪

  11. I have Lupus.. sunlight is a no-no.. I take D3 and melatonin. .. in the winter I have to up dose from 10mg. to 20mgs. I will look into incandescent bulbs though.. we changed from UV to lower LED, after I had to go to urgent care with a terrible rash in late Oct.'19 when the Lupus was discovered.

  12. I have always believed that warming your home with a real fire was the best way to get through the long, dark winter. Nice to have that instinctive belief confirmed. 😊
