ENCORE: Connecting the Dots Between Your Gut Health and Many Common Ailments, Part 1
January 4, 2024
Dr. William Davis, author of the best-selling Wheat Belly series, focuses on the microbiome in his new book "Super Gut: Reprogram Your Microbiome to Restore Health, Lose Weight, and Turn Back the Clock." Dr. Davis relates how the limitations of his conventional cardiology training led him to explore natural alternatives, which fundamentally altered his patients’ trajectory to heart disease. He describes the rationale for gluten avoidance as a path, not just to weight loss, but also to overall health restoration. Dr. Davis goes beyond mere gluten avoidance; it’s necessary to curtail many other offending grains and embrace a low-carb diet. His research has revealed that homemade yogurts, made with specific starters, have a wide range of benefits. A polyphenol and prebiotic-rich diet, probiotic replacement, as well as certain nutraceuticals are critical to restoration of gut integrity. Click HERE for part 2.

Dr. Pamela Smith joins us to provide an update on LDN, a versatile therapy that delivers a low dose of a commonly prescribed lifesaving medication used to reverse narcotics overdoses.
