Use Your EAR to Predict a Heart Attack

Check for this interesting predictor of a heart attack right now—it’s as easy as looking in the mirror.

There is an interesting predictor of a heart attack that you can look for right now. Go to the mirror and look for a crease on your ear lobe, starting where the hole is and coming out 45 degrees.

Coronary artery disease or cardiovascular disease causes you to lose blood flow to the heart muscle.

A chronic lack of blood flow to the heart causes the loss of circulation in the peripheral parts of the body first, like the ear lobes. Without this blood supply to the ear lobes, you can develop this crease.

This crease shows up in about 71% of people with heart disease. However, it has also been found to appear in other health conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure.

People who smoke may also notice this crease, but it’s most commonly seen in people with heart problems.

It’s important to act now to support a healthy heart:
1. Get on the Healthy Keto® diet and do intermittent fasting
2. Exercise regularly
3. Take tocotrienols
4. Consume omega-3 fatty acids (cod live oil)
5. Take vitamin K2 with vitamin D3

    I had that crease for a long time and actually had a Dr tell me that I was not going to be one of those people who live a long life. I’ve been carnivore for over 3 yrs and in the last yr started IF (18 HR/ day) and lately have been doing OMAD. I am trying to get to a 36 hr fast. Hopefully this helps.

    • Eagle Arrow on March 18, 2023 at 2:26 pm

      I hope you found a new doctor.

    • JP Hickory on March 18, 2023 at 2:53 pm

      You need a new doctor

    • Daniel hijo De Dios on March 18, 2023 at 5:04 pm

      That Doctor ain’t God he can’t tell you that that’s up to the Lord .

    • Lee Hill on March 18, 2023 at 9:50 pm

      Keep going and prove him wrong!

  2. Doug M on March 18, 2023 at 11:41 am

    Great. Just great. First video I watch this morning and my creased ear hears it very well.

  3. Dawn Elder on March 18, 2023 at 11:42 am

    My husband has that. His heart is fine, but he has had strokes. We also found out he was diabetic. I learnt about the earlobe shortly after.

    • Dawn Elder on March 18, 2023 at 11:49 am

      That was 13 years ago. After watching him get worse for 8 months on the diet from the hospital I changed us both to the old British diet in the prologue of Good Calories. I also removed seed oils and replaced them with real fats. We both take cod liver oil.
      Don’t throw out seed oil if you own property. Put it in a spray bottle. Tentsworms in your trees. Spray the outside of the tent. Break tent. Spray the inside. Dead in seconds. Do not worry about birds like I did the first time. They do not attempt to eat them. Works on other insect problems as well.

    • Kash Korazon on March 18, 2023 at 12:31 pm

      Hi what cod liver oil you use?

    • Kirsti Cheetah on March 18, 2023 at 1:02 pm

      @Kash Korazon Hello! I use codliver oil from Norsan and I take the oil from canned codliver (and give the liver to my dog).

    • Jacklyn Allen on March 19, 2023 at 2:15 am

      Hi, is vitamin k supplement okay for 20 year olds?

    • Rocka Boatus on March 19, 2023 at 3:20 am

      @Kash Korazon Carlson’s Cod Liver Oil is probably the best out there. They have very high quality standards, and I’ve seen great improvement in my skin, hair and health for the past 12 years.

  4. natural observer on March 18, 2023 at 11:47 am

    I’ve had this crease in my ears since my 20s. I’m now 70 with good blood pressure, no diabetes and my heart feels fine.

    • Dallas Jansen on March 19, 2023 at 10:34 am

      You could just have big earlobes that hang and are prone to wrinkles with age

    • Anonymous on March 19, 2023 at 12:27 pm

      @Christine K
      No need to stress yourself out. Whether you have winkled earlobes or not, aged or young, eat well or not, God has already numbered your days on this earth before you were born. So live one day at a time because tomorrow is not promised to us. And never look back because it interferes with the day you are living.
      It’s all in the Living Word.
      Shalom (Peace)

      Same here. 60 now. Healthy.

    • vishwayoga on March 19, 2023 at 6:27 pm

      Thanks for saying that. Dr Berg has me freaking out. I have done yoga and the gym since my teens, 54 now. So no shortage of exercise. I coukd eat better, but i dont know how long the crease has been there.

  5. 1Vettefan on March 18, 2023 at 12:43 pm

    This one is controversial. I heard about this many years ago and even brought it up during a routine exam with my doctor at one time. I have creases in both ears and have had them for at least 15 to 20 years. I sleep on my side and some people say that could be a cause of them. When I hear that someone has had heart issues I often look at that their lobes and more often than not I don’t see creases in their ears. I still try to do what I can to minimize risks with my own health though so I am appreciative of any potential indicators that something is not right. I’d like more scientific evidence though before I’m completely convinced that this is an actual indicator of advanced heart disease.

    • I'm happy on March 19, 2023 at 5:03 am

      wow you are a good doctor

    • Cheryl Harman on March 19, 2023 at 8:10 am

      I read years ago that this had been disproven.

    • Lorraine Syratt on March 19, 2023 at 2:02 pm

      @Cheryl Harman Good to know. It seems like fear-mongering to me. This is the first time this guy disappointed me.

  6. calikokat100 on March 18, 2023 at 12:46 pm

    thank you for elevating my anxiety

    • metallmad77 on March 18, 2023 at 5:15 pm

      mine too, until I’ve found that I was born with it!

    • Ghost of R/T on March 18, 2023 at 8:30 pm

      @metallmad77 If you are born with the creases on the ear lobe then you have a predisposition to cardiovascular disease. However it’s not a life sentence, your diet and lifestyle are the predictors, not the crease.

  7. Jack Gordon on March 18, 2023 at 1:03 pm

    I’m 78 and have had the crease for years now. I exercise 30 minutes a day (walking) and have done so for 40 years and take vitamin supplements. My GP says I’m healthy by every test he knows, no sign of cardio problems.

    • Roy Guzman on March 18, 2023 at 9:59 pm

      @In Full Bloom so the moral of your story was is that he was perfectly fine until the doctors wanted to treat him for something he didn’t have in his mind.?

    • PhilLesh69 on March 19, 2023 at 12:23 am

      Nope. It’s named after somebody, too. I’ve known about this for years. I’ve had the crease since at least my early thirties and I’m in my early fifties now. I looked up “Why do I have a crease in my ear lobe” about fifteen years ago. It’s a real thing and it really is an early indicator of heart issues.

    • honkytrousers on March 19, 2023 at 8:15 am

      30 min walk

    • paul joseph martinez on March 19, 2023 at 3:13 pm

      @Tara L if you have had the Jab once or twice or more . 27 or not go get a test and be sure. Don’t treat your body like it’s an amusement park ride and honor it and treat it like it is a temple and a gift from God. Eat healthy exercise and spiritually explore your life and live a long life beyond 27. And do some serious research on the jab in regards to what it does to your heart and arteries and DNA for that matter

  8. Rosanne Bowman on March 18, 2023 at 1:31 pm

    I noticed i developed a crease on my earlobe and I went in to my doctor. Turned out I had dilated cardiomyopathy with a 30% heart function. I felt really weird telling my doctor why I had come in for a check up, but I was glad i did! I was only 46 at the time.

    • bob boscarato on March 19, 2023 at 12:53 pm

      @SOCOMJON I never did jogging except one hour in high school during gym class! Did lots of lifting and sweating during my HVAC career of 55 years; Happy at 86.-

    • Robert Van Dyke on March 19, 2023 at 4:59 pm

      but how can this indicate anything looks skin does this naturally and no sciece back studies

    • SOCOMJON on March 19, 2023 at 5:28 pm

      @bob boscarato lol I never had an interest in sports whatsoever. I don’t want to say that having this health scare was a good thing but luckily I survived and made s decision to look after myself properly!! Good health to you Bob

    • bob boscarato on March 19, 2023 at 5:44 pm

      @SOCOMJON Thank you very much!

    • Barbara Holguin on March 19, 2023 at 6:31 pm

      Great information! Does it matter which ear?

  9. TommyTwoX on March 18, 2023 at 1:49 pm

    I love seeing all my elders on here in their 70s talkin about how healthy they are. Thats amazing and i am glad you are all healthy. 😎

    • Lush Kitty on March 18, 2023 at 5:26 pm


      I’m an elder Gen Xer.
      I’m no longer looking forward to aging.

      What, with all that Benjamin Buttons rewind to go through?
      Humans wore diapers immediately after being bourn, and eventually, many of us will die wearing them?

      Mayhaps experience aphasia, dementia, alzheimer diseases and other types of degenerative diseases that affects bone, muscle, et. al.?


      Not for me.

      I’ll be okay if I goeth however my destined demise is to be.
      Let it be, let it be.

      (the only fear I have left is…
      I just don’t want to wear diapers and being spoon-fed and abused on my way out the proverbial door)

    • TommyTwoX on March 18, 2023 at 5:30 pm

      @Lush Kitty To each his/her own. Lol. I am 38. Getting old just means i aint dying young. I myself have kids and want to be around as long as possible.

    • Mrs H on March 18, 2023 at 8:06 pm

      @Lush Kitty you’re weird

  10. M Spears & Bobo Buddy the Senior Cat on March 18, 2023 at 1:54 pm

    My creases appeared about 7 years ago. 😥 I have really high blood pressure but on BP meds now. My dad just had to have a quadruple bypass open heart surgery but thankfully before any heart attacks. I’ll have to check his earlobes for creases! Thanks for the info and instructions doc!

    • I'm happy on March 19, 2023 at 5:03 am

      Have a good day

    • PsychedForLife on March 19, 2023 at 9:14 am

      Now is your time! We have the info to make the necessary changes rather than waiting until a triple bypass. I’m not suggesting to go off meds but rather incorporate the 7 things mentioned in this video like change in eating, exercise and supplements. I’m going to start on it, too. I’m not just singling you out. We’ve got this! Hopefully at the next checkup I can reduce meds or prevent any new ones from being prescribed.

  11. Karen Wittfoth on March 18, 2023 at 1:57 pm

    I’ve had this crease in my ear for at least 10 years, I don’t remember before that. I’m 53 now. My mom and grandma also had it.

  12. K Brown on March 18, 2023 at 2:05 pm

    My late husband had that crease and it was such a crease his ear lobes almost folded. He had FTD but was on every heart med chemical they gave him. Because his heart doctor treated him for heart disease when IMO that quack’s chemicals caused his dementia.

    • Mia on March 18, 2023 at 5:37 pm

      I’m so sorry 😞 a lot of these drs just prescribe toxic chemicals. It’s horrible. That’s why there’s so many side effects. It’s up to us to take care of ourselves.

    • D D on March 18, 2023 at 7:15 pm

      Anytime we lose a loved one, we want to blame someone or some thing…I think it’s a natural part of grieving.

    • K Brown on March 18, 2023 at 7:41 pm

      @D D that’s true to a point. In his case due to the type of dementia he had he refused to sign ( one of the worst pieces of legislation ever) HIPAA. Which prevents family members from talking to doctors, especially if the damn doctor is so scared he would get in trouble.

  13. J Spella on March 18, 2023 at 2:59 pm

    I have the crease and not sure for how long. I’m thankful for the information, since I’ve also been having other sensations that have me questioning my heart health. Thank you 💖✨

    • Jack G on March 19, 2023 at 6:13 am

      You probably should get checked out. I was having issues for about 5 weeks before I found the time to say I better see what’s going on. I was lucky and am lucky to be here. My LAD was completely blocked.

  14. Pioquinto Martinez on March 18, 2023 at 3:17 pm

    I am 74. About 30 years ago, a co-worker notice the creases in my ears and told me about this possibility. I laughed and accused him of spreading old wives tales and forgot about it. After watching the video, I went to look for my boot camp portrait, age 20. Creases were already there. I am in good health, not taking any meds, but I have always been active. Not going to worry about it.

  15. Lily of La La Land on March 18, 2023 at 3:42 pm

    Congratulations Dr. Berg, you have successfully made everyone look at their ears!

    Dr. Berg is one of the best doctors! We need more like him.

      Thank you for this. I saw my left ear lobe crease. I will call my doctor on Monday. You might have saved my life. I do have mild hypertension. I will check out my cardiovascular system.

  18. James Stacy on March 18, 2023 at 5:49 pm

    I’m 75. I’ve lifted weights and done cardio for many decades.

    I’ve avoided too much alcohol; no smoking.

    I limit junk food and added sugar.

    I’ve had ear love creases for as long as I can recall.

    I’m 6’, 180 lbs..

    I’ve had an annual physical exam for many years.

    I’m fit and feel great.

  19. Diana Lynn on March 18, 2023 at 6:52 pm

    I was in the cosmetology field many years ago. Eighty percent of my clients had this type of crease in their earlobes from wearing heavy earrings or only on one ear from being a side-sleeper.

    • E. Blair on March 19, 2023 at 5:00 am

      Thank you for saying this!
