The ancient bacteria that has kept our gut in alignment and our digestion easy have been dying off and replaced by harmful microbes that don’t serve to keep us physically healthy and mentally fit. Nine years ago, I interviewed Dr. William Davis, author of Wheat Belly, which was a breakthrough informing many that the wheat and grains of our ancestors were making us sick and overweight. In our talk today, Dr. Davis discussed his newest book, Super Gut, where he takes his research and findings a step further.
With cutting edge research, Dr. Davis has connected the dots between gut health and modern ailments and complaints. There are entire species of microbes that have disappeared, creating health issues that were uncommon one hundred, or even fifty years ago. In our interview, Dr. Davis discusses SIBO (small intestinal bacteria overgrowth), a silent and profound epidemic which affects one out of three people and is responsible for an astounding range of human health conditions.
In the book, Super Gut, Dr. Davis shows readers how to eliminate bad bacteria and bring back the missing good bacteria with a four-week plan to reprogram your microbiome and gets to the root of many diseases. In the interview, he shares how we can increase Oxytocin (the bonding/happy hormone) which promotes brain health, antiaging, weight loss, mental clarity and more restful sleep. Super Gut explains the science clearly! The four-week plan includes recipes, a diet plan, and resources, so you can pinpoint your issues, correct those issues and maintain long-term health and well being.
One of Dr. Davis’ favorite microbes is Lactobacillus Reuteri! This microbe is responsible for things like having a better relationship with others, empathy, well-being, smoother skin, deeper sleep and more libido. Want better athletic performance, there is a microbe for that! The list goes on and on. It is fascinating information which is backed by much science and it is easy to do. He shares some of his favorite homemade yogurt recipes to include many of these wonderful microbes.
In the interview, one of the tools he offers information about is a device called AIRE, which is an at-home test, that can be used to identify SIBO. This is such an important diagnostic tool and very affordable. Listen to the interview to learn more.
