Howdy and welcome to the Wellness Mama podcast. I’m Katie from wellnessmama.com, and I’m again with a return visitor I’m very excited to speak with Dr. Steven Gundry, creator of The Plant Paradox, the brand new e-book Intestine Verify, and lots of others as nicely. And on this episode, we go deep on the subject of the best way to maintain your intestine in examine and remodel your well being. And he goes into some wonderful details about this, together with some statistics like that 94% of autoimmune sufferers can resolve their autoimmune points and what it takes to try this. We deal with intestine well being, together with some issues you might not perceive or find out about ways in which you is likely to be harming your intestine unintentionally, and a few distinctive methods for resolving leaky intestine, which appears to be on the root of loads of autoimmune points.

Dr. Gundry is the founder and creator and director of the Worldwide Coronary heart and Lung Institute in California, the Middle for Restorative Drugs in Palm Springs. And after a distinguished surgical profession and as professor and chairman of the Cardio-thoracic Surgical procedure at Loma Linda Institute, he modified his focus to curing trendy ailments by way of dietary modifications, which is what he now focuses on. He’s written the bestselling books, The Plant Paradox, The Plant Paradox Cookbook, The Plant Paradox Fast and Straightforward, The Longevity Paradox, and lots of others. And we go deep on his new e-book, Intestine Verify, at this time, the place he supplies some further methods from his analysis and his intensive work with sufferers for many years. I all the time study a lot from Dr. Gundry, and I actually loved this episode. So let’s be part of him now. Dr. Gundry, welcome again.

Dr. Gundry: Hey, thanks for having me again once more, I respect it.

Katie: Effectively, I all the time love our conversations, and I really like that at this time we get to speak about an entire new e-book and a brand new focus for you. So to start out off broad and with a bit background, I’d love to listen to what the inspiration was for Intestine Verify and possibly tie in how various intestine microbiome is so key for longevity and for basically each side of well being.

Dr. Gundry: Yeah, you understand, every of my books, I hope has constructed on the earlier books. I don’t write a e-book simply type of for enjoyable. And, in fact, The Plant Paradox was the massive e-book for me that’s now nearly seven years outdated. And due to The Plant Paradox, loads of my affected person inhabitants shifted to sufferers with autoimmune ailments, and doubtless 80% of my apply is now autoimmune sufferers who both aren’t getting any higher or wish to get off of biologic medication or on the lookout for one other manner out of all this.

And so due to that, I’ve fortunately been capable of make the most of checks, blood checks for intestinal permeability, higher often called leaky intestine. And likewise have a look at meals sensitivities and look deeper dive into how the intestine microbiome and the wall of the intestine influences the whole lot that occurs to us. And so Intestine Verify is, and one of many chapters in Intestine Verify is Plant Paradox 2.0. And it’s type of like, okay, what have I realized within the final seven years that my readers would possibly wish to find out about.

And one of many attention-grabbing issues about me is that I get to vary my thoughts. And if one thing, some analysis, both that I’ve performed with my sufferers or that I’ve studied, means that possibly my preliminary suggestions may need been unsuitable or there’s a nuance that needs to be chosen, then I’m more than pleased to jot down about it and admit, yeah, that was dumb. Right here’s the brand new concept, and we’ll go from there. There are loads of authors who I’ve been saying the identical factor for 20 odd years, regardless of a wealth of recent analysis, regardless of not even up till the tip of 2016, when the Human Microbiome Mission was accomplished, we didn’t even know that there have been 100 trillion micro organism in our intestine, in our mouth, on our pores and skin, we didn’t even know they existed. In order that’s type of what’s new.

Katie: And it looks as if that is undoubtedly analysis continues to level to, as you talked about, the intestine well being being completely pivotal for all features of well being and, in fact, all the issues in trendy society that basically assault our intestine well being. What are a few of the hidden risks that you just present in researching this which can be affecting our intestine well being that folks won’t even concentrate on?

Dr. Gundry: Effectively, I believe one of many issues that might shock lots of people who assume that complete grains are the most effective meals {that a} human being can eat. One of many hanging findings once we do leaky intestine checks. To begin with, anybody with any illness, you identify it, anybody with any grievance, we are able to hint that to a leaky intestine. I’ve but to satisfy an individual once we begin, who doesn’t have leaky intestine. That’s wonderful. Quantity two, 100% of individuals with leaky intestine have antibodies, have their immune system activated to the assorted types of wheat. Wheat germ agglutinin, gluten, non-gluten wheat proteins, that are additionally current in barley and rye. There’s a protein in oats that cross-reacts with gluten. Seventy % of people that react to wheat crops react to corn. And in order that’s been an actual eye-opener. Most individuals have antibodies to wheat. And so there’s, no less than once we’re beginning out with individuals, there is no such thing as a protected type of wheat. Darn it.

Now, I believe you talked about, nicely, what’s type of modified? I believe an increasing number of the presence of glyphosate, Roundup, in nearly all of our meals is among the actual troublemakers for a number of causes. Most individuals, I believe, nonetheless don’t understand that Roundup is now sprayed on most standard crops, not GMO crops to desiccate the plant. It’s way more environment friendly to reap grains when the inventory is lifeless and dry. And so massive manufacturing facility farming kills off a discipline of corn, or a discipline of wheat, or a discipline of oats, or a discipline of soybeans with glyphosate so it’s simpler to reap.

Now, that Roundup isn’t washed off. It’s then fed to our animals, and glyphosate is then within the flesh of our animals that we eat, and it’s fed to us. And, as an example, there’s not an oat product available on the market, even natural oats, that don’t have glyphosate in them. Most California wines have glyphosate in them. So it’s in all places.

So why is that necessary? Effectively, two causes. Primary, glyphosate was patented as an antibiotic. It wasn’t patented as a weed killer. And that’s type of attention-grabbing. So glyphosate can kill the microbiome, but it surely’s truly pretty selective. It likes to kill off the microbiome that’s necessary for the tryptophan, serotonin, 5-HTP pathway, the feel-good hormones. And we’re starting to appreciate, just like the e-book talks about, that the majority of our nervousness and melancholy, which is rampant on this nation, comes from the truth that we now not have a standard microbiome that produces these feel-good hormones. And we go into it quite a bit within the e-book on precisely why that is, how that is.

Quantity two. Glyphosate in and of itself causes leaky intestine. You don’t want anything. In order that’s, these are dangerous issues. Now, I truly simply yesterday, I noticed a younger girl who had Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, and she or he resolved that concern by following the intestine examine program, as do 94% of our autoimmune sufferers. Not dangerous. And she or he’s off of her thyroid treatment, et cetera, et cetera. And she or he went over to Europe just lately. And went to Cyprus, went to Italy, went to France, and like most individuals, she was consuming the croissants and the pasta and the pizza. And she or he mentioned, you understand, the wonderful factor is I didn’t react to those issues. They didn’t trouble me. I didn’t have an upset abdomen. And thanks for curing me. And I mentioned, nicely, maintain on. Yeah, you will get away with that over there, however don’t assume for a minute that you would be able to begin consuming our pizzas or our crackers or our breads as a result of over there, there’s mainly no glyphosate. And so, and I hear this on a regular basis from my sufferers, and I’ve truly the identical private expertise. So I believe glyphosate is among the issues that’s actually modified issues for all of us.

Katie: And that is sensible. And it undoubtedly looks as if from only a cost-benefit evaluation perspective, it’s price avoiding and for positive testing. And it seems like 94% of individuals see drastic enhancements once they comply with that and the opposite elements of your protocol. And like your affected person, I used to have Hashimoto’s and now not do. And it was fairly the method of studying all of this and letting my, I firmly imagine our our bodies are designed and meant to heal, and we simply must type of get out of their manner typically and allow them to do this. And one other time period that you just use within the e-book, I hope I don’t butcher saying this, however estrobolome. Perhaps I mispronounced that, however are you able to clarify why that’s necessary?

Dr. Gundry: Yeah, that’s, you understand, it’s, the postmenopausal girls are underneath the impression that they don’t make estrogen anymore. And but, a lot of, I see a lot of girls, postmenopausal, who make estrogen. And loads of instances that estrogen comes out of our fats cells. However in reality, there’s a flock of micro organism which can be able to making estrogen, modifying estrogen, modifying hormones into different hormones. And there’s now superb analysis that we needs to be conscious, notably men and women for that matter, concerning the affect of our microbiome on our hormonal well being. And why that’s necessary is, nicely, if a postmenopausal girl has a set of micro organism that may manipulate the meals she eats into estrogen, she would possibly wish to know that.

And the opposite factor I speak about within the e-book is we now know that, sadly, there’s a microbiome related to nearly each most cancers that has been studied. There’s a breast most cancers microbiome. There’s a lung most cancers microbiome. There’s a pancreatic most cancers microbiome. There’s a prostatic most cancers microbiome. And there’s an ovarian most cancers microbiome. And who would have guessed that these micro organism are both collaborating within the most cancers development or no less than they’re there and we ought to concentrate that they’re there for a motive. Now, you understand, affiliation doesn’t imply causation, however isn’t it attention-grabbing that every most cancers has a unique microbiome. It’s not only a bunch of micro organism determined to hold round with some most cancers cells. They’re every distinctive. In truth, there was a paper a few years in the past wanting on the oral microbiome of pancreatic most cancers sufferers, and the oral microbiome is predictable of who’s going to get pancreatic most cancers. It’s like, whoa.

Katie: That’s fascinating to me as a result of oral well being has been a pet analysis matter of mine for over a decade and the way connective that’s to our whole-body well being and the way the saliva interacts with our enamel and remineralizes. It’s like there’s a lot there that we didn’t used to know. And so I really like that you just’re wanting so deeply in any respect of these items.

And I do know there’s extra, clearly, within the e-book than we are able to cowl in a single podcast episode, so I’ll, in fact, hyperlink to it so individuals can test it out. I extremely suggest all your books. However I’d love to speak about, we’ve defined a few of the issues that we’re seeing and issues which can be assaulting our intestine well being. I’d love to speak excessive degree of a few of the options as a result of I do know from studying it and from following your work for thus lengthy, lots of your sufferers see drastic outcomes and resolve loads of their points, not simply at a symptom degree, however at a root trigger degree. So what are a few of the belongings you take individuals by means of on this e-book?

Dr. Gundry: Yeah, let me simply preface that with Hippocrates, 2,500 years in the past, mentioned all illness begins within the intestine. Now, I’ve been spending 25 years attempting to determine how he knew that. However he was proper. And I’ll paraphrase that to say all illness begins in a leaky intestine. And the excellent news is all illness resolves while you seal a leaky intestine.

So sealing the leaky intestine is difficult on two elements. I may promote you some dietary supplements to seal your leaky intestine, and so they work very nicely. And different individuals have dietary supplements to heal leaky intestine. However as I inform my sufferers, if you happen to maintain swallowing razor blades that may slice open your newly fastened leaky intestine, the issue is not going to go away. And I believe one of many issues that made and now Intestine Verify so helpful is that there are these compounds, loads of them protection proteins in crops, which can be actually good at inflicting leaky intestine. This was actually first confirmed by Dr. Alessio Fasano, who’s now at Harvard. However the mechanism of how lectins, and gluten occurs to be a lectin, trigger leaky intestine is nicely established. And the good factor is we are able to measure the diploma of leaky intestine for anybody, after which we are able to quantify how briskly that’s therapeutic. And we haven’t met anybody who hasn’t been capable of fully seal their leaky intestine. It normally takes 9 months to a yr. However once they do, their immune system forgets all of those antibodies to the assorted issues that they had been delicate to, which is admittedly thrilling.

So one of many issues that make individuals cry is, you understand, I strive to remove many of the grain merchandise. There’s a few grains that don’t have lectins and that’s sorghum and millet. If individuals wish to have grain merchandise, I urge them to strain prepare dinner them. Similar manner with beans and legumes. There are a number of firms that make pressure-cook beans and legumes, Eden Model, Jovial model, they’re nice. Or a strain cooker solves the issue. I can’t inform you how many individuals have antibodies to peanuts, to cashews, they’re troublemakers. Years in the past in my first e-book, almonds had been banned. There’s a reasonably nasty lectin within the peel of almonds. And when HarperCollins purchased The Plant Paradox, they, you understand, thought I used to be a extremely imply individual for taking all these numerous great meals away from individuals, and so they say, you understand, come on, everyone is aware of how good almonds are. I mentioned, nicely, no, probably not. Loads of my autoimmune sufferers react to almonds. And so they mentioned, nicely, what precisely? And I mentioned, nicely, it’s within the peel. And so they mentioned, nicely, okay, how about Marcona almonds and the way about blanched almond flour? And I mentioned, okay, so we gave those that. Lo and behold, once we bought extra refined meals sensitivity testing, and that’s totally different than meals allergy symptoms, loads of my sufferers who had been an entire lot higher however not good, once we examined them, almonds popped up on a regular basis. It’s exceptional how mischievous almonds are. So within the final a part of the e-book, I type of listing my massive 12 of what reveals up steadily on individuals’s meals sensitivity checks. And people surprises lots of people.

The opposite factor that shocked me, I initially actually allowed omega-3 eggs, pastured eggs, A2 milk dairy merchandise like goat and sheep and water buffalo, and I nonetheless do, but it surely’s exceptional how many individuals with leaky intestine initially are delicate to all types of dairy. And are delicate to each egg yolk and egg white. And that shocked me. And so notably if individuals are coping with an autoimmune illness, it’s nicely worthwhile, no matter whether or not you get leaky intestine checks from me or anyone else, to eradicate dairy and eggs initially. And that makes lots of people cry, however there’s some good egg substitutes, there’s some good dairy substitutes which can be nicely price eliminating initially.

Now the thrilling factor that I alluded to is that when you seal your leaky intestine, your immune system, and when you get a great intestine flora once more, the intestine flora teaches the immune system what it wants to fret about and what it doesn’t want to fret about. It mainly says, hey, we’ve bought your again, we’ve bought the whole lot that’s coming down the pipe that this individual swallows we are able to deal with it, you go loosen up, go have a donut and a cigarette, and get your finger off the AK-47 set off. And so we truly can measure the immune system now not being excited by these items that it was very excited by earlier than. And so we are able to reintroduce these meals that had been as soon as very irritating to them, and folks can have them again, which is thrilling.

Katie: Tremendous thrilling for individuals to appreciate this is probably not a lifelong factor. It’s a short-term course of to let the physique heal, which it’s designed to do. I additionally love that you just differentiate between polyphenols and antioxidants and why that distinction is necessary. So are you able to clarify why that distinction issues?

Dr. Gundry: Yeah, for numerous years I used to current my analysis, there’s a World Congress on Polyphenols yearly that’s headed up by a professor from Paris, France, Martin Edith. He, we had been at a gathering in Lisbon numerous years in the past, and firstly of the assembly, he mentioned, “Anybody on this room,” and there’s 400 of us, “who thinks that polyphenols are antioxidants could go away now as a result of I don’t have the time to elucidate to you why polyphenols usually are not antioxidants and go away proper now.” And you understand, I went, “What? They’re not?” And so he was completely proper. Polyphenols usually are not antioxidants.

What’s thrilling is we’ve recognized the polyphenols, that are plant protecting compounds which can be utilized by the plant to guard their mitochondria from solar injury and environmental injury. We eat polyphenols. These are all these brilliant colours and darkish colours and fruit and veggies. And we don’t soak up them very nicely in any respect. And that’s all the time, everyone’s been going, nicely, they’re so necessary, we simply don’t soak up them. Effectively, little did we all know that polyphenols are literally one of many favourite meals of micro organism. And so micro organism eat the polyphenols, after which micro organism make postbiotics out of polyphenols.

Now, postbiotics, I’ve written about now, that is the third e-book I’ve written about it, however postbiotics are, so probiotics are pleasant micro organism. Prebiotics are the fiber that pleasant micro organism like. So we now know that polyphenols are prebiotics. However what’s necessary is micro organism then take these compounds and make new compounds which can be completely important for our well being, completely important for the functioning of the wall of our intestine, important for our mind well being, and important for our mitochondrial well being. And it’s these postbiotics that polyphenols are made into which have such a potent impact. Getting again to what you’ve been mentioning. Hippocrates believed that each one of us have a inexperienced life power power. And that’s actually California-speak. However, um, what, what he meant was that all of us have a innate capacity to have good well being. And there are exterior elements that suppress the expression of inexperienced life power power, and Hippocrates believed {that a} doctor needs to be a detective and discover out what these exterior elements are and educate the affected person to take away them. And such as you mentioned, as soon as these exterior elements are eliminated, then this inexperienced life power power will take over, and also you’re proper. We’ll repair the issue. And the man was proper. Now, I’d argue that it wasn’t a inexperienced life power power. What he was speaking about, in fact, he didn’t find out about them again then, was our microbiome. Our microbiome has much more genetic materials. We only in the near past found there’s 8 trillion bushes on the planet, however there are 92 trillion extra micro organism inside every of our guts than there are bushes on the planet, which provides you some concept of the enormity and the ability of the symbiotic relationship with the intestine microbiome. And so my educating is, you understand, give these guys what they need. And so they’ll maintain you since you’re their residence. And so they, they wish to maintain you.

Katie: That’s a extremely compelling statistic and that’s fascinating. And I additionally wish to simply circle again to what you mentioned earlier, which is that the immune system forgets these antibodies once we heal. As a result of I all the time like to, anytime doable, go away individuals with hope. As a result of I do know having had an autoimmune illness prognosis previously, it will probably appear overwhelming. You possibly can really feel a bit helpless. You possibly can really feel like your complete life is altering completely and eternally in horrible methods. And that’s what I really like about your message in all your books is that you just actually carry individuals to the sensible options and provides them hope for letting the physique truly heal, such as you simply defined, it’s designed to do. We simply must get the issues out of its manner which can be in trendy society which can be making that course of actually tough. And it is aware of what to do to heal. It’s not that we’ve to externally power it to try this. It already innately is aware of precisely how to try this.

Dr. Gundry: Yeah, I imply, not a day goes by that, you understand, I nonetheless see sufferers six days every week. Seventh day, McHenry MD. However I see sufferers on Saturdays and Sundays, and folks go, wait. Holy cow, you’re closing in on the mid-70s. What the heck are you doing that for? Effectively, I’m actually nonetheless a child in a sweet retailer. I simply get to see what I suppose I’d have described as miracles manner again when. However you possibly can comply with this. You possibly can watch leaky intestine heal. You possibly can watch the immune system change what it’s after. And you may watch these markers for, you understand, any autoimmune illness, you grow to be regular.

One in all my favourite tales a number of years in the past, I had a older girl who, usually my PA sees my new sufferers first after which I see the brand new affected person in three to 6 months after she provides the preliminary seek the advice of. So I see this girl from my first go to along with her, and she or he had seen my assistant. And I mentioned, so, you understand, what are you doing right here? She says, nicely, I’m right here as a result of I’ve Hashimoto’s. Effectively, I had already seen her new labs. And her antithyroid, globulin, and TPO had been now regular. And I mentioned, nicely, no, you don’t have Hashimoto’s. And she or he mentioned, nicely, don’t be so flippant. She mentioned, in fact I’ve Hashimoto’s, and that’s why I’m right here. I mentioned, oh, you used to have Hashimoto’s, however you don’t anymore. Her mouth dropped open, and I confirmed her the labs, and she or he begins crying. And she or he mentioned, however everyone informed me that, you understand, that is my illness for the remainder of my life. I mentioned, nicely, sorry, it’s now not your drawback so long as you retain doing it. So it’s like, holy cow. It’s wonderful.

Katie: I really like that story, and it highlights one thing I say on right here a lot, and I’m going to say it once more, which is that I firmly imagine that on the finish of the day, we’re every our personal main healthcare supplier as a result of we’re those making the choices that influence our each day well being. And that once we take possession for that, we step into a lot energy and talent to have an effect on change. And I additionally assume what you simply mentioned introduced up an necessary level, which is usually once we’re identified with one thing, it turns into our identification. And so the significance of letting go of that being a part of our identification, I even realized to shift my language to cease saying I’ve Hashimoto’s to saying I’m therapeutic from Hashimoto’s as a result of I do assume it’s essential. Our internal ideas and that, in fact, could possibly be its personal complete matter. However I really like that you just highlighted that story on the finish. And like I mentioned, there’s, in fact, a lot extra nuance that you just go into within the e-book, which I cherished. I’ll ensure it’s linked within the present notes or it’s out there I do know in all places books are bought, however extremely suggest all your work. And I’m all the time so grateful to your time and your knowledge. Thanks a lot for being right here and to your new e-book.

Dr. Gundry: Thanks. Recognize it.

Katie: And thanks for listening. And I hope that you’ll be part of me once more on the subsequent episode of the Wellness Mama Podcast.
