We live in a time when it has never been more important to have a healthy immune system. Certainly, the last 2-1/2 years has taught us this. There will undoubtedly be more pandemics in the future. Did anyone notice that not one single major public health official took the step to tell us what we most needed to hear that robust good health is our best defense against infectious disease. Today, I spoke with Dr. Chris Chlebowski, author of The Virus and the Host, his new book which shows us how to take control of our health and decrease susceptibility to infectious viral disease before it strikes.
In The Virus and the Host, protect yourself from infectious disease by reducing toxicity, improving immunity, and minimizing chronic illness, Dr. Chlebowski offers practical and understandable information on viruses, protozoa, bacteria, parasites, and fungi and what each of those pathogens are and what they are not. He shares how viruses are different and what we are still learning about them. He also talks about some of the major toxins that wreak havoc on our immune system. He shares how chronic disease interacts and can predispose us to poor outcomes from acute viral infections, like Covid 19.
Dr. Chlebowski also talks about how we have pathogen partners. As the United States National Institute of Health states on their website, “In healthy individuals, pathogens cause no disease; they simply coexist with their host and the rest of the human microbiome.”
Some of the tools, Dr. Chlebowski shares are:
- How to eat like your life depends on it
- The best nutrients to supercharge your immunity
- How to harness the power of botanical medicine
- How to detoxify simply and safely at home; and
- Valuable information on simple treatment and recommended diagnostic tests for given conditions

As you know, I am a big believer in the power of the gut microbiome. When Dr. William Davis of Wheat Belly and Super Gut success was on the show, he shared about his company, Oxyceutics, and their debut product, Gut to Glow. He formulated this supplement to support gut balance and impact the skin from the inside out. I have experienced the benefits of L. reuteri by making his yogurt and m now so excited to have an alternative to that. In addition to L. reuteri, he added marine collagen, astaxanthin, and hyaluronic acid–all ingredients that have been studied for their skin benefits. I noticed my skin was better and I also am having deeper sleep. Oxyceutics conducted a pre-market group in which after 3 months, 88% of women reported a brighter and more luminous skin tone, and 81% a more youthful appearance. These results are exciting, and they have two more clinical trials underway that should be complete in early 2023. I have been enjoying taking Gut to Glow and would love to share this with you!
