ENCORE: Hidden Dangers in “Healthy” Foods, Part 1
January 22, 2020
Dr. Steven Gundry, author of "The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in 'Healthy' Foods That Cause Disease and Weight Gain," discusses how lectins from plant foods can cause physical and mental symptoms and promote obesity. As a vegetarian, he experienced high cholesterol and blood pressure and couldn’t lose weight despite a rigorous exercise program. His research led him to a new diet paradigm which enabled him to shed 70 pounds and optimize his cardiovascular risk factors. What are lectins, and how do they inflict damage on the body? Could lectins explain the “Wheat Belly” phenomenon? Why “healthy” foods like grains, beans, squash, tomatoes, potatoes, peanuts and cashews, and even chia seeds can cause harm. Why fruits can sometimes trigger disease and weight gain. Does that mean we should severely curtail our intake of plant foods? Which are permissible? Are meats, fish, eggs and poultry free of lectins? Why does the Plant Paradox Diet permit some forms of dairy? How does the supplement “Lectin Shield” mitigate the damage caused by inadvertent consumption of lectins? Click HERE for part 2.

Colostrum, Nature’s Wonder Food, Part 1
August 7, 2018
Doug Wyatt, Director of the Sovereign Health Initiative, a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to educating people on natural and effective solutions for addressing the root causes of autoimmune and chronic conditions, describes the enormous therapeutic potential of colostrum. Mammalian mothers’ first milk, colostrum is a balanced blend of growth factors, lactoferrin, and immunoglobulins designed to prime babies’ guts and confer protection against pathogens. In the absence of colostrum, leaky gut develops, which enables development of allergies and autoimmunity. Colostrum has shown wide applicability to a variety of disease states. It may also regulate metabolism, helping to control appetite and preventing obesity and diabetes. Research has shown it confers a performance edge for athletes. Both adults and children—even infants—benefit from colostrum. Wyatt explains why colostrum should be a daily adjunct to everyone’s nutritional regimen. How to take it? What if you’re allergic to dairy or have lactose intolerance? How is Colostrum LD different from transfer factor? Wyatt explains how Colostrum LD is ideally prepared and made bio-available via a unique liposomal delivery system (LD). Intelligent Medicine listeners can obtain a free sample at www.mysovlabs.com; an educational site provides more background on colostrum at www.mysovhealth.org. Click HERE for part 2.
