Hi there 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, writer of The Plant Paradox, the brand new e book Intestine Examine, and lots of others as properly. And on this episode, we go deep on the subject of how you can hold your intestine in test and remodel your well being. And he goes into some superb 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 give attention to intestine well being, together with some issues chances are you’ll not perceive or learn about ways in which you could be harming your intestine unintentionally, and a few distinctive methods for resolving leaky intestine, which appears to be on the root of a variety of autoimmune points.

Dr. Gundry is the founder and creator and director of the Worldwide Coronary heart and Lung Institute in California, the Heart 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 fashionable illnesses through 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 Examine, as we speak, the place he supplies some extra methods from his analysis and his in depth work with sufferers for many years. I at all times study a lot from Dr. Gundry, and I actually loved this episode. So let’s be a part of him now. Dr. Gundry, welcome again.

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

Katie: Nicely, I at all times love our conversations, and I like that as we speak 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 just a little background, I might love to listen to what the inspiration was for Intestine Examine and possibly tie in how various intestine microbiome is so key for longevity and for primarily each facet 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, after all, The Plant Paradox was the massive e book for me that’s now virtually seven years outdated. And due to The Plant Paradox, a variety of my affected person inhabitants shifted to sufferers with autoimmune illnesses, and possibly 80% of my apply is now autoimmune sufferers who both aren’t getting any higher or wish to get off of biologic medicine or on the lookout for one other approach out of all this.

And so due to that, I’ve fortunately been in a position to make the most of checks, blood checks for intestinal permeability, higher generally known as leaky intestine. And in addition have a look at meals sensitivities and look deeper dive into how the intestine microbiome and the wall of the intestine influences all the things that occurs to us. And so Intestine Examine is, and one of many chapters in Intestine Examine is Plant Paradox 2.0. And it’s type of like, okay, what have I discovered within the final seven years that my readers may wish to learn about.

And one of many fascinating issues about me is that I get to vary my thoughts. And if one thing, some analysis, both that I’ve carried out with my sufferers or that I’ve studied, means that possibly my preliminary suggestions may need been unsuitable or there’s a nuance that ought 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 a variety 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 like that is undoubtedly analysis continues to level to, as you talked about, the intestine well being being completely pivotal for all points of well being and, after all, all the issues in fashionable 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 individuals may not even concentrate on?

Dr. Gundry: Nicely, I feel one of many issues that may shock lots of people who assume that entire grains are the very best meals {that a} human being can eat. One of many placing findings once we do leaky intestine checks. Initially, anybody with any illness, you identify it, anybody with any grievance, we will hint that to a leaky intestine. I’ve but to fulfill an individual once we begin, who doesn’t have leaky intestine. That’s superb. 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, a minimum of once we’re beginning out with folks, there isn’t a protected type of wheat. Darn it.

Now, I feel you talked about, properly, what’s type of modified? I feel increasingly the presence of glyphosate, Roundup, in virtually all of our meals is among the actual troublemakers for a number of causes. Most individuals, I feel, nonetheless don’t notice that Roundup is now sprayed on most typical crops, not GMO crops to desiccate the plant. It’s way more environment friendly to reap grains when the inventory is useless and dry. And so huge manufacturing unit 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 essential? Nicely, two causes. Primary, glyphosate was patented as an antibiotic. It wasn’t patented as a weed killer. And that’s type of fascinating. So glyphosate can kill the microbiome, but it surely’s really pretty selective. It likes to kill off the microbiome that’s essential for the tryptophan, serotonin, 5-HTP pathway, the feel-good hormones. And we’re starting to understand, 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 traditional microbiome that produces these feel-good hormones. And we go into it lots 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 the rest. In order that’s, these are unhealthy issues. Now, I really simply yesterday, I noticed a younger woman who had Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, and she or he resolved that concern by following the intestine test program, as do 94% of our autoimmune sufferers. Not unhealthy. And she or he’s off of her thyroid medicine, et cetera, et cetera. And she or he went over to Europe not too long ago. 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 superb factor is I didn’t react to those issues. They didn’t hassle me. I didn’t have an upset abdomen. And thanks for curing me. And I mentioned, properly, maintain on. Yeah, you may get away with that over there, however don’t assume for a minute which you could 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 really the identical private expertise. So I feel glyphosate is among the issues that’s actually modified issues for all of us.

Katie: And that is sensible. And it undoubtedly looks like from only a cost-benefit evaluation perspective, it’s value avoiding and for positive testing. And it feels like 94% of individuals see drastic enhancements after they observe that and the opposite components 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 need to type of get out of their approach typically and allow them to try this. And one other time period that you just use within the e book, I hope I don’t butcher saying this, however estrobolome. Possibly I mispronounced that, however are you able to clarify why that’s essential?

Dr. Gundry: Yeah, that’s, you understand, it’s, the postmenopausal ladies are underneath the impression that they don’t make estrogen anymore. And but, a lot of, I see a lot of ladies, postmenopausal, who make estrogen. And a variety of instances that estrogen comes out of our fats cells. However in truth, 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 ought to be conscious, significantly men and women for that matter, concerning the affect of our microbiome on our hormonal well being. And why that’s essential is, properly, if a postmenopausal girl has a set of micro organism that may manipulate the meals she eats into estrogen, she may 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 virtually 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 progress or a minimum of they’re there and we ought to concentrate that they’re there for a cause. Now, you understand, affiliation doesn’t imply causation, however isn’t it fascinating that every most cancers has a special microbiome. It’s not only a bunch of micro organism determined to hold round with some most cancers cells. They’re every distinctive. The truth is, 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 grasp. And so I like that you just’re wanting so deeply in any respect of this stuff.

And I do know there’s extra, clearly, within the e book than we will cowl in a single podcast episode, so I’ll, after all, hyperlink to it so folks can test it out. I extremely suggest all your books. However I might 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 might 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, a lot of your sufferers see drastic outcomes and resolve a variety of their points, not simply at a symptom degree, however at a root trigger degree. So what are a few of the stuff you take folks 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 making an attempt 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 whenever you seal a leaky intestine.

So sealing the leaky intestine is difficult on two components. I might promote you some dietary supplements to seal your leaky intestine, and so they work very properly. And different folks have dietary supplements to heal leaky intestine. However as I inform my sufferers, in case you hold swallowing razor blades that may slice open your newly fastened leaky intestine, the issue won’t go away. And I feel one of many issues that made and now Intestine Examine so helpful is that there are these compounds, a variety 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 properly established. And the nice factor is we will measure the diploma of leaky intestine for anybody, after which we will quantify how briskly that’s therapeutic. And we haven’t met anybody who hasn’t been in a position to fully seal their leaky intestine. It normally takes 9 months to a yr. However after they do, their immune system forgets all of those antibodies to the assorted issues that they had been delicate to, which is de facto thrilling.

So one of many issues that make folks cry is, you understand, I attempt to remove a lot of the grain merchandise. There’s a few grains that don’t have lectins and that’s sorghum and millet. If folks wish to have grain merchandise, I urge them to strain cook dinner them. Identical approach with beans and legumes. There are a number of corporations 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 fairly 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 folks, and so they say, you understand, come on, all people is aware of how good almonds are. I mentioned, properly, no, probably not. Numerous my autoimmune sufferers react to almonds. They usually mentioned, properly, what precisely? And I mentioned, properly, it’s within the peel. They usually mentioned, properly, okay, how about Marcona almonds and the way about blanched almond flour? And I mentioned, okay, so we gave people who. Lo and behold, once we acquired extra subtle meals sensitivity testing, and that’s completely different than meals allergy symptoms, a variety 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 record my huge 12 of what exhibits up incessantly on folks’s meals sensitivity checks. And people surprises lots of people.

The opposite factor that stunned 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 stunned me. And so significantly if persons are coping with an autoimmune illness, it’s properly worthwhile, no matter whether or not you get leaky intestine checks from me or any individual else, to get rid of 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 properly value eliminating initially.

Now the thrilling factor that I alluded to is that after you seal your leaky intestine, your immune system, and when you get an excellent 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 acquired your again, we’ve acquired all the things that’s coming down the pipe that this individual swallows we will 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 really can measure the immune system now not being thinking about this stuff that it was very thinking about earlier than. And so we will 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 folks to understand this might not be 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 essential. So are you able to clarify why that distinction issues?

Dr. Gundry: Yeah, for a lot of 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 a lot of 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 depart now as a result of I don’t have the time to elucidate to you why polyphenols are usually not antioxidants and depart proper now.” And you understand, I went, “What? They’re not?” And so he was completely proper. Polyphenols are usually not antioxidants.

What’s thrilling is we’ve identified the polyphenols, that are plant protecting compounds which can be utilized by the plant to guard their mitochondria from solar harm and environmental harm. We eat polyphenols. These are all these vibrant colours and darkish colours and fruit and veggies. And we don’t take up them very properly in any respect. And that’s at all times, all people’s been going, properly, they’re so essential, we simply don’t take up them. Nicely, 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 essential 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 pressure vitality. And that’s actually California-speak. However, um, what, what he meant was that all of us have a innate potential to have good well being. And there are exterior components that suppress the expression of inexperienced life pressure vitality, and Hippocrates believed {that a} doctor ought to be a detective and discover out what these exterior components are and educate the affected person to take away them. And such as you mentioned, as soon as these exterior components are eliminated, then this inexperienced life pressure vitality will take over, and also you’re proper. We’ll repair the issue. And the man was proper. Now, I might argue that it wasn’t a inexperienced life pressure vitality. What he was speaking about, after all, he didn’t learn about them again then, was our microbiome. Our microbiome has much more genetic materials. We only recently 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 facility of the symbiotic relationship with the intestine microbiome. And so my instructing is, you understand, give these guys what they need. They usually’ll deal with you since you’re their residence. They usually, they wish to deal with 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 at all times like to, anytime attainable, depart folks with hope. As a result of I do know having had an autoimmune illness analysis prior to now, it might appear overwhelming. You’ll be able to really feel just a little helpless. You’ll be able to really feel like your entire life is altering completely and perpetually in horrible methods. And that’s what I like about your message in all your books is that you just actually deliver folks to the sensible options and provides them hope for letting the physique really heal, such as you simply defined, it’s designed to do. We simply need to get the issues out of its approach which can be in fashionable society which can be making that course of actually troublesome. And it is aware of what to do to heal. It’s not that we’ve got to externally pressure 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? Nicely, I’m actually nonetheless a child in a sweet retailer. I simply get to see what I assume I might have described as miracles approach again when. However you may observe this. You’ll be able to watch leaky intestine heal. You’ll be able to watch the immune system change what it’s after. And you’ll watch these markers for, you understand, any autoimmune illness, you develop into regular.

One among my favourite tales just a few 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 offers the preliminary seek the advice of. So I see this woman from my first go to together with her, and she or he had seen my assistant. And I mentioned, so, you understand, what are you doing right here? She says, properly, I’m right here as a result of I’ve Hashimoto’s. Nicely, I had already seen her new labs. And her antithyroid, globulin, and TPO had been now regular. And I mentioned, properly, no, you don’t have Hashimoto’s. And she or he mentioned, properly, don’t be so flippant. She mentioned, after all 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 all people advised me that, you understand, that is my illness for the remainder of my life. I mentioned, properly, sorry, it’s now not your drawback so long as you retain doing it. So it’s like, holy cow. It’s superb.

Katie: I 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 major healthcare supplier as a result of we’re those making the selections that influence our every day well being. And that once we take possession for that, we step into a lot energy and skill to have an effect on change. And I additionally assume what you simply mentioned introduced up an essential level, which is usually once we’re recognized with one thing, it turns into our id. And so the significance of letting go of that being a part of our id, I even discovered 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 inside ideas and that, after all, could possibly be its personal entire matter. However I like that you just highlighted that story on the finish. And like I mentioned, there’s, after all, a lot extra nuance that you just go into within the e book, which I beloved. I’ll be sure that it’s linked within the present notes or it’s accessible I do know in all places books are offered, however extremely suggest all your work. And I’m at all times so grateful to your time and your knowledge. Thanks a lot for being right here and to your new e book.

Dr. Gundry: Thanks. Respect it.

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