  • -John Bradshaw:This is It Is Written.
  • 00:00:19.976 --> 00:00:21.511
  • I'm John Bradshaw.Thanks for joining me.
  • 00:00:21.544 --> 00:00:23.980
  • You know, I've met a lotof people in my life,
  • 00:00:24.013 --> 00:00:26.149
  • but I can't remember evermeeting one single person
  • 00:00:26.182 --> 00:00:29.018
  • who has ever said,
  • 00:00:29.052 --> 00:00:30.820
  • "I wish I hadn't livedas long as I have lived."
  • 00:00:30.854 --> 00:00:34.457
  • Most people wouldlike to live longer.
  • 00:00:34.491 --> 00:00:37.360
  • But the fact of the matter isit's not until we get
  • 00:00:37.393 --> 00:00:39.329
  • very late in life, or maybeat the end of life,
  • 00:00:39.362 --> 00:00:42.165
  • that people say, "I wishI'd done things better.
  • 00:00:42.198 --> 00:00:45.502
  • I wish I had another year,five years, or ten years."
  • 00:00:45.535 --> 00:00:48.938
  • Now, most of us could have moreyears than we are going to get.
  • 00:00:48.972 --> 00:00:55.545
  • I want to say thatto you again.
  • 00:00:55.578 --> 00:00:57.213
  • Most of us could live longerthan we're going to live.
  • 00:00:57.247 --> 00:01:01.684
  • To talk about thatwith me today,
  • 00:01:01.718 --> 00:01:03.052
  • my special guest, presidentof CompassHealth Consulting,
  • 00:01:03.086 --> 00:01:05.955
  • Dr. David DeRose.
  • 00:01:05.989 --> 00:01:06.990
  • David, thanksfor joining me.
  • 00:01:07.023 --> 00:01:08.158
  • -Dr. David DeRose:Great to be with you, John.
  • 00:01:08.191 --> 00:01:09.459
  • -John: I am thrilled genuinely.
  • 00:01:09.492 --> 00:01:10.560
  • You've written a book called"The Methuselah Factor,"
  • 00:01:10.593 --> 00:01:13.696
  • and we know who Methuselah is.
  • 00:01:13.730 --> 00:01:15.632
  • He's that fellowwho, in the Bible,
  • 00:01:15.665 --> 00:01:17.300
  • lived to be almost1.000 years of age.
  • 00:01:17.333 --> 00:01:21.471
  • So when talking about"The Methuselah Factor,"
  • 00:01:21.504 --> 00:01:23.873
  • clearly we're going to tell youhow you can live to be 969.
  • 00:01:23.907 --> 00:01:28.845
  • Right?
  • 00:01:28.878 --> 00:01:30.013
  • -Dr. DeRose: Well, John,the news is actually better
  • 00:01:30.046 --> 00:01:31.915
  • than that.
  • 00:01:31.948 --> 00:01:32.849
  • -John: How can it bebetter than that?
  • 00:01:32.882 --> 00:01:34.384
  • -Dr. DeRose: Here's whatI'm going to tell you.
  • 00:01:34.417 --> 00:01:35.885
  • It, it's really this.
  • 00:01:35.919 --> 00:01:37.120
  • People are focused mainly onthe number of years they live,
  • 00:01:37.153 --> 00:01:40.523
  • but we're talkingabout quality of life.
  • 00:01:40.557 --> 00:01:42.625
  • So the subtitleof the book is
  • 00:01:42.659 --> 00:01:44.027
  • "How to Live Sharper, Leaner,Longer, and Better."
  • 00:01:44.060 --> 00:01:47.664
  • Now, with our present bodiesin the state of sin
  • 00:01:47.697 --> 00:01:51.167
  • in which we find ourselves,
  • 00:01:51.201 --> 00:01:52.802
  • 969 years probablywould not be optimal.
  • 00:01:52.835 --> 00:01:56.539
  • But we can help peoplelive longer and better
  • 00:01:56.573 --> 00:01:58.942
  • by paying attentionto the medical science
  • 00:01:58.975 --> 00:02:01.578
  • called hemorheology; it'sthe science of blood fluidity.
  • 00:02:01.611 --> 00:02:05.281
  • -John: Okay, so, what we reallywant to do today is talk,
  • 00:02:05.315 --> 00:02:08.551
  • talk about the book, butmore than the book itself,
  • 00:02:08.585 --> 00:02:12.288
  • the truth is, from aChristian perspective,
  • 00:02:12.322 --> 00:02:15.225
  • we want to live forever.
  • 00:02:15.258 --> 00:02:17.560
  • So today we're really goingto talk about living forever,
  • 00:02:17.594 --> 00:02:19.996
  • but also living better,uh, more quality lives
  • 00:02:20.029 --> 00:02:23.433
  • during the time thatwe have on this earth.
  • 00:02:23.466 --> 00:02:26.102
  • Hemorheology you saidis the science of what?
  • 00:02:26.135 --> 00:02:28.805
  • -Dr. DeRose: The scienceof blood fluidity.
  • 00:02:28.838 --> 00:02:30.506
  • -John: Uh, what'sblood fluidity?
  • 00:02:30.540 --> 00:02:32.175
  • -Dr. DeRose: Basically,think about it this way.
  • 00:02:32.208 --> 00:02:34.010
  • If order for you to haveoptimal health,
  • 00:02:34.043 --> 00:02:36.312
  • your blood has to flow freelythrough your blood vessels,
  • 00:02:36.346 --> 00:02:39.749
  • not just the largearteries and veins
  • 00:02:39.782 --> 00:02:41.884
  • but also through the tiny bloodvessels, like the capillaries.
  • 00:02:41.918 --> 00:02:45.455
  • That's whereexchange takes place,
  • 00:02:45.488 --> 00:02:47.857
  • where the oxygengoes into your tissues,
  • 00:02:47.890 --> 00:02:49.993
  • the carbon dioxide is removed,where nutrients are exchanged.
  • 00:02:50.026 --> 00:02:53.963
  • So if you want optimal health,you want optimal circulation.
  • 00:02:53.997 --> 00:02:58.001
  • -John: So, a person can dosomething to improve
  • 00:02:58.034 --> 00:03:02.405
  • their circulation?
  • 00:03:02.438 --> 00:03:03.640
  • -Dr. DeRose:Most definitely.
  • 00:03:03.673 --> 00:03:04.707
  • -John: Okay.
  • 00:03:04.741 --> 00:03:05.842
  • Well, we must talk about someof those concrete steps
  • 00:03:05.875 --> 00:03:07.010
  • because my, mythinking is, you know,
  • 00:03:07.043 --> 00:03:09.779
  • you take a pill to lower yourblood pressure, or you walk.
  • 00:03:09.812 --> 00:03:12.682
  • You can do certain thingsto deal with diabetes
  • 00:03:12.715 --> 00:03:14.751
  • and hardening of the arteries.
  • 00:03:14.784 --> 00:03:15.985
  • But I don't know if most peoplehave ever stopped to think,
  • 00:03:16.019 --> 00:03:19.722
  • I can improvemy blood fluidity.
  • 00:03:19.756 --> 00:03:22.558
  • I can impact my circulation.
  • 00:03:22.592 --> 00:03:25.395
  • Uh, uh, let's take the25.000-foot view, the overview.
  • 00:03:25.428 --> 00:03:28.464
  • Improve your circulation, andwhat sort of things can improve?
  • 00:03:28.498 --> 00:03:31.434
  • -Dr. DeRose: Well, let'stake a good example.
  • 00:03:31.467 --> 00:03:32.769
  • One is heart disease.
  • 00:03:32.802 --> 00:03:34.203
  • If you look at conventionalheart disease risk factors
  • 00:03:34.237 --> 00:03:36.873
  • like cholesterol,blood pressure, smoking,
  • 00:03:36.906 --> 00:03:39.242
  • and you put them side by sidewith markers or indicators
  • 00:03:39.275 --> 00:03:42.779
  • of blood fluidity,
  • 00:03:42.812 --> 00:03:43.846
  • there's strange terms,things like viscosity,
  • 00:03:43.880 --> 00:03:47.016
  • fibrinogen, that's a, whichis a clotting factor.
  • 00:03:47.050 --> 00:03:49.519
  • But if you look at those,
  • 00:03:49.552 --> 00:03:50.753
  • sometimes those are morepowerful risk factors
  • 00:03:50.787 --> 00:03:54.324
  • than the ones thatwe're measuring.
  • 00:03:54.357 --> 00:03:56.592
  • For example, fibrinogen.
  • 00:03:56.626 --> 00:03:58.528
  • They did a study in Europe.
  • 00:03:58.561 --> 00:03:59.962
  • They looked at peoplewith low fibrinogens.
  • 00:03:59.996 --> 00:04:02.065
  • That's good. Their bloodis going to be more fluid.
  • 00:04:02.098 --> 00:04:04.300
  • And they compared them topeople with high fibrinogens.
  • 00:04:04.334 --> 00:04:07.603
  • Those with the low fibrinogenshad only about 1/4 to 1/5
  • 00:04:07.637 --> 00:04:12.075
  • the risk of havinga heart attack.
  • 00:04:12.108 --> 00:04:13.710
  • -John: So does that meanin, instead of,
  • 00:04:13.743 --> 00:04:15.545
  • or as well as saying,
  • 00:04:15.578 --> 00:04:17.647
  • "I must eat more almonds;I must eat more celery,"
  • 00:04:17.680 --> 00:04:20.683
  • we might want to besaying things like,
  • 00:04:20.717 --> 00:04:22.452
  • "I've got to do something aboutthis fibrinogen or fibrinogens"?
  • 00:04:22.485 --> 00:04:26.089
  • -Dr. DeRose: Here's thepractical way I look at it.
  • 00:04:26.122 --> 00:04:27.757
  • I mean, you're connectingthe dots perfectly,
  • 00:04:27.790 --> 00:04:30.059
  • but the reality is you walkinto the average doctor office,
  • 00:04:30.093 --> 00:04:32.962
  • and he or she isnot going to say,
  • 00:04:32.995 --> 00:04:34.664
  • "Oh, yeah, we'll just do thepanel with the fibrinogen,
  • 00:04:34.697 --> 00:04:36.999
  • the viscosity, and theVon Willebrand's factor."
  • 00:04:37.033 --> 00:04:39.369
  • These are all things thatthey measure and research.
  • 00:04:39.402 --> 00:04:41.804
  • But what I'm saying issimple lifestyle factors,
  • 00:04:41.838 --> 00:04:44.540
  • simple lifestyle habits canactually make a difference
  • 00:04:44.574 --> 00:04:47.643
  • in all of these factorsacross the board.
  • 00:04:47.677 --> 00:04:49.679
  • You don't have to bemeasuring them from day to day.
  • 00:04:49.712 --> 00:04:51.647
  • -John: Somebody'swatching right now,
  • 00:04:51.681 --> 00:04:53.015
  • they're sitting at home,they're drinking a Coke,
  • 00:04:53.049 --> 00:04:55.551
  • they're, they haven'ttaken a walk in forever,
  • 00:04:55.585 --> 00:04:57.820
  • and they're going to eattheir typical high-fat
  • 00:04:57.854 --> 00:05:01.224
  • standard American diet food.
  • 00:05:01.257 --> 00:05:03.893
  • And that's okay;that's your choice.
  • 00:05:03.926 --> 00:05:06.496
  • And the thinking is,"I gotta die anyway.
  • 00:05:06.529 --> 00:05:09.999
  • I might as well die happy,doing what I love,"
  • 00:05:10.032 --> 00:05:13.269
  • and, and the morepertinent question is,
  • 00:05:13.302 --> 00:05:15.938
  • from a Christian perspective,why does it even matter?
  • 00:05:15.972 --> 00:05:19.609
  • This, this is a Bible-teachingtelevision program.
  • 00:05:19.642 --> 00:05:22.278
  • We're talking about fibrinogensand Von Willebrand's factor
  • 00:05:22.311 --> 00:05:26.215
  • and so forth.
  • 00:05:26.249 --> 00:05:27.383
  • Why does that matter in thedaily life of a believer?
  • 00:05:27.417 --> 00:05:31.220
  • -Dr. DeRose: Here's the wayI look at it, John.
  • 00:05:31.254 --> 00:05:33.356
  • God is trying tocommunicate with us.
  • 00:05:33.389 --> 00:05:35.391
  • He's trying to guide us.He's trying to lead us.
  • 00:05:35.425 --> 00:05:37.527
  • When I sit with my Biblein front of me,
  • 00:05:37.560 --> 00:05:39.929
  • I want to understandwhat the Holy Spirit
  • 00:05:39.962 --> 00:05:42.064
  • is trying to communicate.
  • 00:05:42.098 --> 00:05:43.599
  • What we find out is whenwe improve our hemorheology,
  • 00:05:43.633 --> 00:05:47.136
  • our mental functioningactually measurably improves.
  • 00:05:47.170 --> 00:05:51.073
  • So if I want to have themost unobstructed pathway
  • 00:05:51.107 --> 00:05:54.844
  • of communion withmy Creator and my Savior,
  • 00:05:54.877 --> 00:05:57.580
  • I want my blood fluidityto be optimal.
  • 00:05:57.613 --> 00:06:00.216
  • I want my, as I call it,my Methuselah factor--
  • 00:06:00.249 --> 00:06:03.486
  • that's the synonymI use for hemorheology--
  • 00:06:03.519 --> 00:06:06.155
  • I want it to beas good as possible.
  • 00:06:06.189 --> 00:06:08.491
  • -John: Now, you're a pastorand a physician.
  • 00:06:08.524 --> 00:06:10.259
  • You've been a practicingphysician for many years.
  • 00:06:10.293 --> 00:06:12.528
  • Is it fair to say,
  • 00:06:12.562 --> 00:06:14.564
  • in addition to the enhancedrelationship with God,
  • 00:06:14.597 --> 00:06:17.834
  • is it fair to saythat a believer,
  • 00:06:17.867 --> 00:06:20.670
  • someone who's given heror his heart to Jesus Christ,
  • 00:06:20.703 --> 00:06:23.806
  • does that person reallyhave a responsibility
  • 00:06:23.840 --> 00:06:26.275
  • to take care of their body?
  • 00:06:26.309 --> 00:06:28.344
  • -Dr. DeRose: John,it's amazing to me.
  • 00:06:28.377 --> 00:06:30.046
  • When you look at Godarticulating His plan
  • 00:06:30.079 --> 00:06:33.483
  • for His people, you--rereadthe book of Deuteronomy.
  • 00:06:33.516 --> 00:06:36.419
  • God gives the law,
  • 00:06:36.452 --> 00:06:37.620
  • and then He says whydid He give these things:
  • 00:06:37.653 --> 00:06:39.655
  • "That it may be well with you";
  • 00:06:39.689 --> 00:06:41.057
  • that things would go--that,that people would know
  • 00:06:41.090 --> 00:06:43.392
  • that you're reallychildren of the King.
  • 00:06:43.426 --> 00:06:46.762
  • And so this whole ideaof responsibility,
  • 00:06:46.796 --> 00:06:48.798
  • Paul speaks about our bodies
  • 00:06:48.831 --> 00:06:50.333
  • being a templeof the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:06:50.366 --> 00:06:52.635
  • These concepts come togetherbecause when I realize
  • 00:06:52.668 --> 00:06:55.638
  • that God has entrusted mewith something precious,
  • 00:06:55.671 --> 00:06:58.474
  • this, this gift of health,when I care for my body,
  • 00:06:58.508 --> 00:07:01.611
  • not only do I have thatenhanced relationship,
  • 00:07:01.644 --> 00:07:04.347
  • but I function better;I feel better.
  • 00:07:04.380 --> 00:07:06.516
  • I can serve my Lord better.
  • 00:07:06.549 --> 00:07:08.217
  • And actually I'ma better witness.
  • 00:07:08.251 --> 00:07:10.086
  • People see my life, and theysay, "Well, what are you doing?
  • 00:07:10.119 --> 00:07:13.623
  • I mean, how come I'm ending upin the doctor's office
  • 00:07:13.656 --> 00:07:16.192
  • every week, and you're not?"
  • 00:07:16.225 --> 00:07:18.327
  • -John: There's a lot to coverhere talking about the things
  • 00:07:18.361 --> 00:07:20.863
  • that impact theMethuselah factor a lot.
  • 00:07:20.897 --> 00:07:24.066
  • I would just go back to sayI believe that this,
  • 00:07:24.100 --> 00:07:26.869
  • the, the Bible speaksabout us being fearfully
  • 00:07:26.903 --> 00:07:29.572
  • and wonderfully made.
  • 00:07:29.605 --> 00:07:30.973
  • We are the templeof the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:07:31.007 --> 00:07:33.376
  • I, I think it's fairto generalize and say,
  • 00:07:33.409 --> 00:07:35.244
  • by and large, acrossChristianity, that's forgotten.
  • 00:07:35.278 --> 00:07:39.982
  • It's neglected.
  • 00:07:40.016 --> 00:07:41.083
  • As a matter of fact,I think it's rejected.
  • 00:07:41.117 --> 00:07:42.919

  • Now, a moment ago, we'retalking about this thing
  • 00:08:53.990 --> 00:08:55.791
  • called hemorheology.
  • 00:08:55.825 --> 00:08:57.493
  • Explain that againfor me, if you would.
  • 00:08:57.526 --> 00:08:58.995
  • -Dr. David DeRose:Basically, it's the science
  • 00:08:59.028 --> 00:09:00.262
  • of blood fluidity.
  • 00:09:00.296 --> 00:09:01.430
  • And the more fluid the blood,the better your health.
  • 00:09:01.464 --> 00:09:03.866
  • -John: We talk aboutblood pressure a lot.
  • 00:09:03.899 --> 00:09:05.935
  • -Dr. DeRose:Mm-hmm.
  • 00:09:05.968 --> 00:09:06.869
  • -John: Why, why has ittaken me this long
  • 00:09:06.902 --> 00:09:10.306
  • to hear about blood fluidity?
  • 00:09:10.339 --> 00:09:12.408
  • Why is that not somethingspoken of more?
  • 00:09:12.441 --> 00:09:15.044
  • -Dr. DeRose: You know,it's really shocking
  • 00:09:15.077 --> 00:09:16.412
  • because there arewhole medical societies,
  • 00:09:16.445 --> 00:09:18.848
  • there's medical journalsthat are devoted
  • 00:09:18.881 --> 00:09:20.549
  • to nothing but hemorheology.
  • 00:09:20.583 --> 00:09:22.051
  • One of them is called
  • 00:09:22.084 --> 00:09:23.452
  • "Hemorheology andMicrocirculation."
  • 00:09:23.486 --> 00:09:26.122
  • -John: That sounds exciting.
  • 00:09:26.155 --> 00:09:27.923
  • -Dr. DeRose: But, but thisis just not filtered
  • 00:09:27.957 --> 00:09:30.526
  • into the lay dialogue.
  • 00:09:30.559 --> 00:09:31.827
  • -John: And it reallyought to be, right?
  • 00:09:31.861 --> 00:09:32.828
  • -Dr. DeRose:Oh, it really ought to be.
  • 00:09:32.862 --> 00:09:33.963
  • -John: Because in hereyou write about how
  • 00:09:33.996 --> 00:09:36.632
  • improved blood fluidity canimpact and actually decrease
  • 00:09:36.666 --> 00:09:42.538
  • your risk of cancer.
  • 00:09:42.571 --> 00:09:44.106
  • How's that?
  • 00:09:44.140 --> 00:09:45.307
  • -Dr. DeRose: Well, this is oneof the most shocking ones.
  • 00:09:45.341 --> 00:09:46.642
  • You know, when we talkabout stroke and heart attack,
  • 00:09:46.676 --> 00:09:49.378
  • people say, "Oh, yeah, thoseare circulatory disorders."
  • 00:09:49.412 --> 00:09:52.014
  • But when you throw cancerinto the mix, people say,
  • 00:09:52.048 --> 00:09:54.116
  • "Well, how, how couldthat factor in?"
  • 00:09:54.150 --> 00:09:55.918
  • -John: Yeah.
  • 00:09:55.951 --> 00:09:57.119
  • -Dr. DeRose: There was afascinating study some years ago
  • 00:09:57.153 --> 00:09:58.354
  • where they looked at womenwho were dealing
  • 00:09:58.387 --> 00:10:00.489
  • with gynecologic cancer,so, female cancers.
  • 00:10:00.523 --> 00:10:03.359
  • The researchers measuredmarkers of blood fluidity
  • 00:10:03.392 --> 00:10:06.328
  • before they hadtheir cancer surgery.
  • 00:10:06.362 --> 00:10:09.031
  • Now, what comesas no surprise
  • 00:10:09.065 --> 00:10:11.100
  • is the worse theirblood fluidity,
  • 00:10:11.133 --> 00:10:12.968
  • the greater their risk of havingthrombosis or blood clots
  • 00:10:13.002 --> 00:10:16.305
  • after the surgery.
  • 00:10:16.338 --> 00:10:17.006
  • -John: Sure.
  • 00:10:17.039 --> 00:10:17.940
  • -Dr. DeRose: We say,"Obvious," right?
  • 00:10:17.973 --> 00:10:18.574
  • -John: Right.
  • 00:10:18.607 --> 00:10:19.709
  • -Dr. DeRose: But what wasshocking is those markers
  • 00:10:19.742 --> 00:10:21.544
  • of blood fluidity alsopredicted survival.
  • 00:10:21.577 --> 00:10:25.414
  • And when the researcherswere writing about it,
  • 00:10:25.448 --> 00:10:27.349
  • what they said iswhat's happening--
  • 00:10:27.383 --> 00:10:29.452
  • this is the, their theoryfor why these things
  • 00:10:29.485 --> 00:10:31.754
  • would be connected.
  • 00:10:31.787 --> 00:10:32.822
  • They say if your bloodis not really fluid,
  • 00:10:32.855 --> 00:10:34.990
  • you're going to have littlemicroclots in the blood vessels.
  • 00:10:35.024 --> 00:10:39.328
  • When that happens, cancercells that are circulating
  • 00:10:39.361 --> 00:10:42.865
  • in the bloodstream can lodgein some of these areas
  • 00:10:42.898 --> 00:10:46.001
  • that are now relativelyisolated from the immune system,
  • 00:10:46.035 --> 00:10:49.605
  • and they can set up shop;they can set up metastasis.
  • 00:10:49.638 --> 00:10:52.541
  • So the cancerspreads more readily
  • 00:10:52.575 --> 00:10:55.311
  • if your blood fluidity is poor.
  • 00:10:55.344 --> 00:10:57.480
  • -John: Okay, we've come thisfar without really talking yet,
  • 00:10:57.513 --> 00:11:00.483
  • and there's a lotto talk about.
  • 00:11:00.516 --> 00:11:01.984
  • I doubt we can do thisin just one program.
  • 00:11:02.017 --> 00:11:04.920
  • We haven't started to talk yet
  • 00:11:04.954 --> 00:11:07.189
  • about how a person canimprove their blood fluidity.
  • 00:11:07.223 --> 00:11:10.960
  • Um, I'm going to guess youcan do it by exercising.
  • 00:11:10.993 --> 00:11:13.896
  • I'm going to guess you can doit by, by eating healthily.
  • 00:11:13.929 --> 00:11:16.565
  • Let's, let's discussthose, but not yet.
  • 00:11:16.599 --> 00:11:18.400
  • What I want to ask you is,
  • 00:11:18.434 --> 00:11:19.769
  • is there, is there one simpleway a person can improve
  • 00:11:19.802 --> 00:11:23.038
  • their blood fluidity thatsomebody like me would say,
  • 00:11:23.072 --> 00:11:27.076
  • "Didn't realize that,that's a surprise"?
  • 00:11:27.109 --> 00:11:29.145
  • Give me one.
  • 00:11:29.178 --> 00:11:30.412
  • -Dr. DeRose: You know, one ofthe biggest surprises we've seen
  • 00:11:30.446 --> 00:11:32.114
  • as we've been bringing thismessage out into communities
  • 00:11:32.148 --> 00:11:35.084
  • throughout the country
  • 00:11:35.117 --> 00:11:36.585
  • is that actually blooddonation may be something
  • 00:11:36.619 --> 00:11:40.489
  • that could improve the bloodfluidity of many Americans.
  • 00:11:40.523 --> 00:11:43.726
  • -John: By giving blood away,
  • 00:11:43.759 --> 00:11:45.661
  • by temporarilyhaving less blood,
  • 00:11:45.694 --> 00:11:47.830
  • it may improveyour blood fluidity.
  • 00:11:47.863 --> 00:11:50.499
  • How's that?
  • 00:11:50.533 --> 00:11:51.934
  • -Dr. DeRose: What the thinkingis, is that many of us
  • 00:11:51.967 --> 00:11:53.769
  • actually have higher what wecall hematocrits than optimal.
  • 00:11:53.803 --> 00:11:57.606
  • Now, hematocrit is atechnical measurement;
  • 00:11:57.640 --> 00:12:00.075
  • it's actually thepercentage of your blood
  • 00:12:00.109 --> 00:12:02.778
  • that is made upof red blood cells.
  • 00:12:02.812 --> 00:12:04.914
  • And what we find is--talkabout mental performance.
  • 00:12:04.947 --> 00:12:08.751
  • As your hematocrit dropsdown, if you're anemic,
  • 00:12:08.784 --> 00:12:13.055
  • you can have poormental performance
  • 00:12:13.088 --> 00:12:14.590
  • because you can't getoxygen to the brain.
  • 00:12:14.623 --> 00:12:16.959
  • The hematocrit comes up,mental performance improves,
  • 00:12:16.992 --> 00:12:19.995
  • but as it keeps rising,then mental performance drops.
  • 00:12:20.029 --> 00:12:23.899
  • And so many Americans have bloodthat is thicker, if you will--
  • 00:12:23.933 --> 00:12:27.469
  • I hate that term, but I don'tknow a better one to use
  • 00:12:27.503 --> 00:12:29.605
  • for lay folks.
  • 00:12:29.638 --> 00:12:30.773
  • Uh, if the blood is thicker,it's not flowing as well;
  • 00:12:30.806 --> 00:12:33.542
  • you've got more blood cells;there's more congestion;
  • 00:12:33.576 --> 00:12:36.512
  • mental performance decreases.
  • 00:12:36.545 --> 00:12:38.080
  • So, donating bloodactually, for many people,
  • 00:12:38.113 --> 00:12:42.117
  • can be beneficial.
  • 00:12:42.151 --> 00:12:43.118
  • -John: Well, I wantto encourage you
  • 00:12:43.152 --> 00:12:44.453
  • not just to think about itbut to get involved
  • 00:12:44.486 --> 00:12:46.522
  • in donating blood.
  • 00:12:46.555 --> 00:12:47.756
  • You help a lot of people, andevidently you help yourself.
  • 00:12:47.790 --> 00:12:50.726
  • So now, is there another thing?
  • 00:12:50.759 --> 00:12:51.961
  • What, what's one other thingthat might not seem intuitive
  • 00:12:51.994 --> 00:12:56.065
  • that would help this?
  • 00:12:56.098 --> 00:12:57.399
  • We're looking for a--
  • 00:12:57.433 --> 00:12:58.667
  • you know, I'm saying we'relooking for a simple thing.
  • 00:12:58.701 --> 00:13:00.536
  • You know, the fact of the matteris, even if this was hard,
  • 00:13:00.569 --> 00:13:03.606
  • people should do it because it'slife-changing and live-saving.
  • 00:13:03.639 --> 00:13:05.975
  • But give meanother simple thing.
  • 00:13:06.008 --> 00:13:07.676
  • Donating blood is goodfor blood fluidity.
  • 00:13:07.710 --> 00:13:10.012
  • What's something elsethat might,
  • 00:13:10.045 --> 00:13:11.780
  • might seem a little surprising?
  • 00:13:11.814 --> 00:13:13.682
  • -Dr. DeRose: Well, this onemay not be as surprising,
  • 00:13:13.716 --> 00:13:16.151
  • but it draws on an illustrationyou used a while ago.
  • 00:13:16.185 --> 00:13:18.787
  • You talked about someonewatching It Is Written,
  • 00:13:18.821 --> 00:13:21.257
  • and they had a certaintype of beverage.
  • 00:13:21.290 --> 00:13:23.058
  • You mentioned asugar-sweetened beverage.
  • 00:13:23.092 --> 00:13:24.827
  • -John: Mm-hmm.
  • 00:13:24.860 --> 00:13:25.794
  • -Dr. DeRose: A lotof people don't realize
  • 00:13:25.828 --> 00:13:26.896
  • that when we upour intake of sugar,
  • 00:13:26.929 --> 00:13:29.265
  • so do our triglycerides, a typeof blood fat, tend to rise.
  • 00:13:29.298 --> 00:13:33.168
  • And as triglycerides go up,blood fluidity goes down.
  • 00:13:33.202 --> 00:13:37.806
  • So, sugar has gottena lot of bad raps,
  • 00:13:37.840 --> 00:13:41.310
  • but it's deserved whenyou look at blood fluidity.
  • 00:13:41.343 --> 00:13:45.014
  • Those sugar-sweetened beverages,one of the leading causes
  • 00:13:45.047 --> 00:13:48.417
  • of what many people arecalling an obesity epidemic
  • 00:13:48.450 --> 00:13:51.520
  • in the Western world,
  • 00:13:51.553 --> 00:13:52.655
  • so it's not just thebody fat connection;
  • 00:13:52.688 --> 00:13:54.757
  • it's also theblood fat connection
  • 00:13:54.790 --> 00:13:57.126
  • when it comes tosugar-sweetened drinks.
  • 00:13:57.159 --> 00:13:58.827
  • -John: I saw this thingwhere somebody, uh,
  • 00:13:58.861 --> 00:14:00.729
  • covenanted to onlyeat healthy food,
  • 00:14:00.763 --> 00:14:03.565
  • and that healthy foodwas an utter train wreck
  • 00:14:03.599 --> 00:14:06.969
  • when it came to sugar content.
  • 00:14:07.002 --> 00:14:08.003
  • There's a lotof hidden sugar.
  • 00:14:08.037 --> 00:14:09.638
  • How can we recognizethat hidden sugar,
  • 00:14:09.672 --> 00:14:12.074
  • the easy steps to get rid of aton of sugar out of our lives?
  • 00:14:12.107 --> 00:14:15.477
  • -Dr. DeRose: You know,I love your question
  • 00:14:15.511 --> 00:14:16.946
  • because a lot of people say,
  • 00:14:16.979 --> 00:14:18.113
  • "Hey, I'm just eatingthe organic cereals."
  • 00:14:18.147 --> 00:14:20.215
  • -John: Right.
  • 00:14:20.249 --> 00:14:21.283
  • -Dr. DeRose: But you walkdown the cereal aisle,
  • 00:14:21.317 --> 00:14:22.551
  • and here's a great placeto practice what we recommend
  • 00:14:22.584 --> 00:14:24.887
  • in the book.
  • 00:14:24.920 --> 00:14:25.921
  • We say, look at the totalcarbohydrate content
  • 00:14:25.955 --> 00:14:28.357
  • of a food and then lookat the sugar content.
  • 00:14:28.390 --> 00:14:31.794
  • Divide the two.
  • 00:14:31.827 --> 00:14:32.728
  • So if there's 25 gramsof carbohydrate
  • 00:14:32.761 --> 00:14:35.497
  • and 5 grams of sugar,
  • 00:14:35.531 --> 00:14:36.799
  • you would divide 25 by 5;you'd come up with...?
  • 00:14:36.832 --> 00:14:39.501
  • -John: Five.
  • 00:14:39.535 --> 00:14:40.169
  • -Dr. DeRose:Very good.
  • 00:14:40.202 --> 00:14:40.903
  • [John exhalesdramatically]
  • 00:14:40.936 --> 00:14:42.004
  • [laughs]Five is that magic number--
  • 00:14:42.037 --> 00:14:43.772
  • if it's five or larger.
  • 00:14:43.806 --> 00:14:48.243
  • In other words, thatmeans you have less,
  • 00:14:48.277 --> 00:14:50.112
  • much less sugarthan carbohydrates.
  • 00:14:50.145 --> 00:14:52.014
  • So in other words,if it was 24 and 3,
  • 00:14:52.047 --> 00:14:54.850
  • that figure would be 8.
  • 00:14:54.883 --> 00:14:56.018
  • -John: Right.
  • 00:14:56.051 --> 00:14:57.152
  • -Dr. DeRose: So five orgreater, that means you've got
  • 00:14:57.186 --> 00:14:58.854
  • a lot more complex carbohydratethan simple sugars.
  • 00:14:58.887 --> 00:15:02.358
  • That is a reasonable choice.
  • 00:15:02.391 --> 00:15:04.026
  • -John: So you want itto be a big number?
  • 00:15:04.059 --> 00:15:05.227
  • A bigger number?
  • 00:15:05.260 --> 00:15:05.961
  • -Dr. DeRose:A bigger number.
  • 00:15:05.995 --> 00:15:06.929
  • So that means a lotof complex carbohydrates
  • 00:15:06.962 --> 00:15:09.131
  • relative to small amountsof simple sugar.
  • 00:15:09.164 --> 00:15:11.633
  • -John: We've gotabout a minute.
  • 00:15:11.667 --> 00:15:13.202
  • Uh, uh, in this minute,talk to me just very quickly,
  • 00:15:13.235 --> 00:15:16.505
  • because in the book there'sa, a really a very simple
  • 00:15:16.538 --> 00:15:19.441
  • 30-day program thatsomeone can say,
  • 00:15:19.475 --> 00:15:21.410
  • okay, I'm going to dive intothis, make some changes,
  • 00:15:21.443 --> 00:15:24.113
  • and so on.
  • 00:15:24.146 --> 00:15:25.347
  • Let's get started on that. We'lltease it just a little bit.
  • 00:15:25.381 --> 00:15:27.516
  • What's a simple changesomebody can make?
  • 00:15:27.549 --> 00:15:29.051
  • We talked aboutcutting that sugar out.
  • 00:15:29.084 --> 00:15:30.886
  • Uh, where do yourecommend a person begin
  • 00:15:30.919 --> 00:15:33.589
  • when they want to improvetheir blood fluidity?
  • 00:15:33.622 --> 00:15:35.691
  • -Dr. DeRose: Basically,you're exactly right.
  • 00:15:35.724 --> 00:15:37.192
  • The book containsa 30-day program.
  • 00:15:37.226 --> 00:15:40.396
  • And the place Irecommend people begin
  • 00:15:40.429 --> 00:15:42.865
  • is on day 1 of the program.
  • 00:15:42.898 --> 00:15:44.366
  • Each of the last 30 chapters isone day in our 30-day program.
  • 00:15:44.400 --> 00:15:48.971
  • -John: Now, this onesurprised me just a little bit.
  • 00:15:49.004 --> 00:15:52.441
  • I'd, I'd heard itbefore in certain circles,
  • 00:15:52.474 --> 00:15:54.510
  • but a little bit surprising.
  • 00:15:54.543 --> 00:15:55.844
  • You've a, a, a chapter called"Beans, Beans, Beans."
  • 00:15:55.878 --> 00:16:00.916
  • Beans help blood. How?
  • 00:16:00.949 --> 00:16:04.453
  • -Dr. DeRose: Beans are amazing.
  • 00:16:04.486 --> 00:16:05.788
  • Years ago, when I was interestedin diabetes treatment,
  • 00:16:05.821 --> 00:16:08.891
  • I ran across a medical researcharticle talking about
  • 00:16:08.924 --> 00:16:11.660
  • how the fiber in beans,as the researchers put it,
  • 00:16:11.693 --> 00:16:14.663
  • improves all aspectsof diabetic control.
  • 00:16:14.696 --> 00:16:17.766
  • When you improve blood sugardynamics in the body,
  • 00:16:17.800 --> 00:16:20.369
  • just like we were talkingabout triglycerides,
  • 00:16:20.402 --> 00:16:22.438
  • you improve blood fluidity.
  • 00:16:22.471 --> 00:16:23.772
  • But beans are more than that;
  • 00:16:23.806 --> 00:16:25.140
  • they've got all kindsof phytochemicals
  • 00:16:25.174 --> 00:16:27.342
  • that also help yourblood flow better.
  • 00:16:27.376 --> 00:16:29.378
  • -John: And a lot of peoplenever eat beans.
  • 00:16:29.411 --> 00:16:30.712
  • Just don't eat them, unlessthey get them out of the can,
  • 00:16:30.746 --> 00:16:32.414
  • and they're sweetened with sugarand seasoned with bacon.
  • 00:16:32.448 --> 00:16:34.983
  • Where can people implementbeans into their diet?
  • 00:16:35.017 --> 00:16:37.486
  • -Dr. DeRose: Basically,get beans; cook them.
  • 00:16:37.519 --> 00:16:40.055
  • It doesn't matter whetherthey're lentils or peas,
  • 00:16:40.089 --> 00:16:42.124
  • garbanzo beans or black-eyedpeas, kidney beans.
  • 00:16:42.157 --> 00:16:45.561
  • Just pick up asimple recipe book.
  • 00:16:45.594 --> 00:16:48.497
  • Just cook them in a crockpot,
  • 00:16:48.530 --> 00:16:50.065
  • the simplest thingin the world to do.
  • 00:16:50.099 --> 00:16:52.501
  • It's great stuff.
  • 00:16:52.534 --> 00:16:53.769
  • -John: And that's what I likeabout "The Methuselah Factor."
  • 00:16:53.802 --> 00:16:56.338
  • It'll revolutionize your life.
  • 00:16:56.371 --> 00:16:57.906
  • It'll impact you powerfullyand positively.
  • 00:16:57.940 --> 00:17:00.175
  • You'll live better.
  • 00:17:00.209 --> 00:17:01.877
  • The better news yet isthat you may live forever.
  • 00:17:01.910 --> 00:17:03.879
  • We'll talk about thatin a moment.
  • 00:17:03.912 --> 00:17:05.881

  • 00:17:50.359 --> 00:17:51.994
  • on It Is Written.
  • 00:17:52.027 --> 00:17:53.362
  • Dr. David DeRoseis the president
  • 00:17:53.395 --> 00:17:55.497
  • of CompassHealth Consulting,
  • 00:17:55.531 --> 00:17:57.099
  • and he's writtena remarkable book.
  • 00:17:57.132 --> 00:17:59.334
  • It is called"The Methuselah Factor."
  • 00:17:59.368 --> 00:18:02.371
  • Methuselah in the Biblelived to be 969,
  • 00:18:02.404 --> 00:18:05.474
  • and while I'm sure Dr. DeRoseis not promising you
  • 00:18:05.507 --> 00:18:07.709
  • that you can live to be 969,
  • 00:18:07.743 --> 00:18:10.145
  • the book does tell you how youcan learn how to live sharper,
  • 00:18:10.179 --> 00:18:13.382
  • leaner, longer, and betterin 30 days or--
  • 00:18:13.415 --> 00:18:16.185
  • in 30 days or less.
  • 00:18:16.218 --> 00:18:18.954
  • Hey, I want to ask youabout that,
  • 00:18:18.987 --> 00:18:20.222
  • and I know you'rean honest fellow,
  • 00:18:20.255 --> 00:18:21.456
  • and we go backquite some time...
  • 00:18:21.490 --> 00:18:24.493
  • but you're, you're, well,you're stating very upfront
  • 00:18:24.526 --> 00:18:27.729
  • that in 30 days or less, peopleare going to see marked change.
  • 00:18:27.763 --> 00:18:33.168
  • Is that really fair to say that?
  • 00:18:33.202 --> 00:18:34.970
  • -Dr. David DeRose: It is;I mean, typically we see
  • 00:18:35.003 --> 00:18:36.738
  • dramatic changesin short times
  • 00:18:36.772 --> 00:18:38.473
  • when people makeserious lifestyle changes.
  • 00:18:38.507 --> 00:18:41.143
  • We give them a 30-day program.
  • 00:18:41.176 --> 00:18:42.511
  • They're making changes each dayand sticking with them.
  • 00:18:42.544 --> 00:18:45.280
  • I think of a patientI had years ago,
  • 00:18:45.314 --> 00:18:47.282
  • actually changed my perspective,
  • 00:18:47.316 --> 00:18:49.518
  • came to one of these residentiallifestyle change programs,
  • 00:18:49.551 --> 00:18:52.554
  • where actually I wasgetting some training
  • 00:18:52.588 --> 00:18:53.956
  • during my medical school years.
  • 00:18:53.989 --> 00:18:55.691
  • The guy could not walkacross the small parking lot
  • 00:18:55.724 --> 00:19:00.062
  • of the health center.
  • 00:19:00.095 --> 00:19:01.296
  • A few weeks later, he waswalking seven or eight miles
  • 00:19:01.330 --> 00:19:04.866
  • on the trails.
  • 00:19:04.900 --> 00:19:05.968
  • No question, this guy'sblood fluidity
  • 00:19:06.001 --> 00:19:08.637
  • had dramatically improved.
  • 00:19:08.670 --> 00:19:10.505
  • -John: You're a pastor.I'm a pastor.
  • 00:19:10.539 --> 00:19:14.076
  • We don't want to see justhealthy sinners, right?
  • 00:19:14.109 --> 00:19:16.578
  • Uh, as good as that would be.
  • 00:19:16.612 --> 00:19:17.980
  • We would hope that a personembarks on a journey
  • 00:19:18.013 --> 00:19:20.082
  • that leads them to faith in Godor increases faith in God.
  • 00:19:20.115 --> 00:19:23.151
  • And what I'm intrigued by hereis that in the 30-day program,
  • 00:19:23.185 --> 00:19:28.023
  • day 7 is calledRest and Refresh,
  • 00:19:28.056 --> 00:19:31.560
  • day 14: Seek Spirituality.
  • 00:19:31.593 --> 00:19:34.930
  • And there are other, uh,similar aspects to this.
  • 00:19:34.963 --> 00:19:38.467
  • So in order to improvemy blood fluidity,
  • 00:19:38.500 --> 00:19:41.703
  • in order to have a, todramatically improve my health,
  • 00:19:41.737 --> 00:19:45.140
  • rest? Seek spirituality?
  • 00:19:45.173 --> 00:19:48.243
  • Explain that for me.
  • 00:19:48.277 --> 00:19:49.211
  • -Dr. DeRose: This isamazing stuff, John.
  • 00:19:49.244 --> 00:19:50.712
  • You know, a lot of people think,
  • 00:19:50.746 --> 00:19:52.080
  • hey, we know where the yearcomes from, right?
  • 00:19:52.114 --> 00:19:54.650
  • And that's the earthgoing around the sun.
  • 00:19:54.683 --> 00:19:56.885
  • We know the day is based onthe earth spinning on its axis.
  • 00:19:56.918 --> 00:19:59.988
  • And people say weunderstand the month.
  • 00:20:00.022 --> 00:20:02.090
  • Its origins comefrom lunar cycles.
  • 00:20:02.124 --> 00:20:04.226
  • But most people don't realizethat built into our physiology
  • 00:20:04.259 --> 00:20:08.030
  • is a seven-day rhythm.
  • 00:20:08.063 --> 00:20:09.631
  • We share some of the researchon circaseptan rhythms;
  • 00:20:09.665 --> 00:20:13.168
  • that's what they're called.
  • 00:20:13.201 --> 00:20:14.469
  • And what we encourage people todo is to tap into those rhythms
  • 00:20:14.503 --> 00:20:17.639
  • to optimize howthey deal with stress,
  • 00:20:17.673 --> 00:20:19.941
  • how they look at life, and howthey implement lifestyle change.
  • 00:20:19.975 --> 00:20:23.912
  • It is not justcoincidence that the Bible
  • 00:20:23.945 --> 00:20:26.615
  • and just about every othersociety in the world today
  • 00:20:26.648 --> 00:20:30.452
  • keeps a seven-day cycle.
  • 00:20:30.485 --> 00:20:32.554
  • Why is that?
  • 00:20:32.587 --> 00:20:33.822
  • We need a day to step apartfrom the normal wear and tear,
  • 00:20:33.855 --> 00:20:39.061
  • from the normal stresses, andreally to refocus and refresh.
  • 00:20:39.094 --> 00:20:42.664
  • -John: What I'm fascinatedby--you look into the Bible;
  • 00:20:42.698 --> 00:20:44.499
  • you get a chapter in,and God says,
  • 00:20:44.533 --> 00:20:48.003
  • "Here's a day for rest."
  • 00:20:48.036 --> 00:20:49.171
  • -Dr. DeRose:Mm-hmm.
  • 00:20:49.204 --> 00:20:50.439
  • -John: I think it's fair to saythat if you look across society,
  • 00:20:50.472 --> 00:20:53.709
  • that that, that idea of aday of rest is disappearing.
  • 00:20:53.742 --> 00:20:57.346
  • And if you lookacross Christianity,
  • 00:20:57.379 --> 00:20:59.881
  • it's disappearing, too.
  • 00:20:59.915 --> 00:21:00.949
  • You go back in essentiallyany church in the land,
  • 00:21:00.982 --> 00:21:04.019
  • back in Grandma's dayor Great-grandma's day,
  • 00:21:04.052 --> 00:21:06.788
  • uh, people respectedand observed that idea
  • 00:21:06.822 --> 00:21:09.558
  • of a day of rest.
  • 00:21:09.591 --> 00:21:10.559
  • We're losing that, aren't we?
  • 00:21:10.592 --> 00:21:11.993
  • -Dr. DeRose: We are, and oneof the things I draw out
  • 00:21:12.027 --> 00:21:13.795
  • in the book, actually,
  • 00:21:13.829 --> 00:21:15.230
  • is an observation thatneuroscientists are making,
  • 00:21:15.263 --> 00:21:17.999
  • and it's simply this:
  • 00:21:18.033 --> 00:21:19.201
  • That we tend to fall intothe trap of prioritizing
  • 00:21:19.234 --> 00:21:23.372
  • urgent things thatare not as important
  • 00:21:23.405 --> 00:21:26.608
  • as the real key things in life
  • 00:21:26.641 --> 00:21:28.910
  • that are of such value,that we let those slip.
  • 00:21:28.944 --> 00:21:31.880
  • And what this whole idea of aday of rest is kind of a time
  • 00:21:31.913 --> 00:21:34.583
  • to reset and to say,"Where are my priorities?"
  • 00:21:34.616 --> 00:21:37.652
  • We say duringthis 30-day program--
  • 00:21:37.686 --> 00:21:39.955
  • I say to my reader:
  • 00:21:39.988 --> 00:21:41.690
  • I want you takinga day off and say,
  • 00:21:41.723 --> 00:21:44.126
  • "Where have I gonein the last week?
  • 00:21:44.159 --> 00:21:45.727
  • Where have I gonein the last two weeks?
  • 00:21:45.761 --> 00:21:47.596
  • And am I on the trajectory
  • 00:21:47.629 --> 00:21:49.598
  • I want to continuefor the rest of my life?"
  • 00:21:49.631 --> 00:21:51.600
  • -John: One thing of a practicalnature in the book here,
  • 00:21:51.633 --> 00:21:53.535
  • and I notice this:
  • 00:21:53.568 --> 00:21:54.302
  • improve yourMethuselah factor;
  • 00:21:54.336 --> 00:21:55.771
  • improve your boneand joint health.
  • 00:21:55.804 --> 00:21:58.273
  • Now, I have a brotherwho was, was putting on
  • 00:21:58.306 --> 00:22:00.542
  • far more weight than he needed
  • 00:22:00.575 --> 00:22:02.577
  • and couldn't exercisebecause his knees were shot,
  • 00:22:02.611 --> 00:22:05.747
  • and he had to get abilateral knee replacement,
  • 00:22:05.781 --> 00:22:08.450
  • and then he could start working.
  • 00:22:08.483 --> 00:22:10.152
  • Uh, so you can easily get caughtin this downward spiral.
  • 00:22:10.185 --> 00:22:13.555
  • I like the idea of lookingafter your joints so that--
  • 00:22:13.588 --> 00:22:16.792
  • well, so that what?
  • 00:22:16.825 --> 00:22:18.527
  • -Dr. DeRose: Well, actually,there is evidence
  • 00:22:18.560 --> 00:22:20.061
  • that you canregenerate cartilage.
  • 00:22:20.095 --> 00:22:21.897
  • It may not be as good as thecartilage the Creator gave you
  • 00:22:21.930 --> 00:22:24.433
  • to begin with.
  • 00:22:24.466 --> 00:22:25.634
  • We have a great story in therefrom an orthopedic surgeon
  • 00:22:25.667 --> 00:22:27.969
  • who actually saw this insomeone who got on a program
  • 00:22:28.003 --> 00:22:31.506
  • to improve their blood fluidity.
  • 00:22:31.540 --> 00:22:33.275
  • Here is the point, John.
  • 00:22:33.308 --> 00:22:34.910
  • Our joints needoptimal circulation.
  • 00:22:34.943 --> 00:22:37.879
  • They're often not getting it.
  • 00:22:37.913 --> 00:22:39.681
  • Well-, well-documented theimportance between improving
  • 00:22:39.714 --> 00:22:43.018
  • blood fluidity and havingreally healthy joints.
  • 00:22:43.051 --> 00:22:46.121
  • -John: So we live alittle longer in this world,
  • 00:22:46.154 --> 00:22:48.156
  • and I don't want to say thatas though I don't care.
  • 00:22:48.190 --> 00:22:50.358
  • I think if you can get anotherweek, you're doing well.
  • 00:22:50.392 --> 00:22:52.594
  • Another year,you're doing well.
  • 00:22:52.627 --> 00:22:53.929
  • The average Americanlives almost 79 years,
  • 00:22:53.962 --> 00:22:57.966
  • which isn't terribly long.
  • 00:22:57.999 --> 00:23:00.001
  • But I know that,that as a believer,
  • 00:23:00.035 --> 00:23:02.170
  • as a pastor, as a physician,
  • 00:23:02.204 --> 00:23:04.473
  • your hope is that a personcan live forever.
  • 00:23:04.506 --> 00:23:07.776
  • And that has somethingto do with blood as well,
  • 00:23:07.809 --> 00:23:09.911
  • but not my blood or yours.
  • 00:23:09.945 --> 00:23:11.713
  • -Dr. DeRose: No, no, it'san amazing connection.
  • 00:23:11.746 --> 00:23:13.882
  • Just like we talked aboutthe benefits that come to us
  • 00:23:13.915 --> 00:23:16.885
  • when we donate blood.
  • 00:23:16.918 --> 00:23:18.487
  • We think of that amazinggreatest gift of blood
  • 00:23:18.520 --> 00:23:22.591
  • and our Savior givingHis life for us.
  • 00:23:22.624 --> 00:23:25.126
  • And really, that'sthe ultimate connection
  • 00:23:25.160 --> 00:23:27.562
  • that not only transformsmy value for me personally,
  • 00:23:27.596 --> 00:23:31.533
  • why I want to takecare of my health,
  • 00:23:31.566 --> 00:23:33.401
  • but gives me that hopeof eternity.
  • 00:23:33.435 --> 00:23:36.304
  • -John: The, the story of thecross is the greatest story
  • 00:23:36.338 --> 00:23:39.341
  • that was ever told, and, andjust as there are simple things
  • 00:23:39.374 --> 00:23:43.311
  • we can do to take careof our physical health,
  • 00:23:43.345 --> 00:23:45.447
  • there are simple things thatwe can do to live forever.
  • 00:23:45.480 --> 00:23:48.650
  • And one of thesimplest things, I think,
  • 00:23:48.683 --> 00:23:50.085
  • and one of the mostcommonsense things
  • 00:23:50.118 --> 00:23:52.354
  • is when you considerthe story found in,
  • 00:23:52.387 --> 00:23:54.723
  • in this book, the Holy Bible,
  • 00:23:54.756 --> 00:23:56.858
  • the story of a Godwho so loved the world
  • 00:23:56.892 --> 00:23:59.160
  • that He gave Hisonly begotten Son,
  • 00:23:59.194 --> 00:24:01.129
  • the story of a Saviorwho died on a cross,
  • 00:24:01.162 --> 00:24:03.765
  • belief is a pretty simple thing.
  • 00:24:03.798 --> 00:24:07.369
  • -Dr. DeRose: It'ssimple conceptually,
  • 00:24:07.402 --> 00:24:08.737
  • but our culture today,we're so accustomed to doubt.
  • 00:24:08.770 --> 00:24:11.773
  • We just have to takeGod at His word.
  • 00:24:11.806 --> 00:24:13.608
  • -John: Believe if you,if you take God at His word,
  • 00:24:13.642 --> 00:24:15.911
  • you will see Godmove in your life,
  • 00:24:15.944 --> 00:24:19.214
