The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

It can be incredibly difficult for the average, everyday person to completely grasp even the most basic health concepts leaving them completely reliant on the so-called experts to explain and educate them. Unfortunately, much of the most relevant information is being all but ignored leaving the layperson completely in the dark on topics like insulin, the negative health effects of grains, and lifestyle solutions to disease. That’s why a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based holistic pharmacist named Dr. Brian Sanderoff from WellBeingGPS.com decided to start making YouTube videos to bring his quarter century of clinical medicine knowledge and experience whittling down these healthy living topics in terms that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. He’s also the weekly host of Well Being Radio on The Patriot 960 AM KKNT in Phoenix, Arizona.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Sanderoff discuss how he was trained traditionally in pharmacology, the moment he wondered whether medicine was fixing the health problems of his patients, how he was the “crazy guy” on the radio talking alternative health in the 1990’s, the misinformation that is coming from special interests impacting the way we look at health, how the “number needed to treat” that is off the radar screen of most medical professionals, why your quality of life goes down with lower cholesterol, the medical arrogance that keeps grains in our diet as a healthy food, the role of homeostasis in your health, the deception that keeps people eating and living poorly under the guise of being prudent, how he got interested in the white board video concept, and how medicine always seems to ask the wrong questions that lead to the wrong solutions.

Everyone seems to have those nagging aches and pains in their body at some point in their lives. Most of the time it’s somewhere in the back area which is why chiropractic care seems to be as popular as it has ever been. For a San Francisco, California-based one named Dr. Scott Mills (aka the soon-to-be Mr. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo fame), it’s his passionate goal to help empower others with the knowledge and tools they need to create an optimal, pain-free life. With a Master’s degree in Exercise Science as well as working as a collegiate Certified Athletic Trainer for 6 years prior to his chiropractic career, Dr. Mills has garnered tons of invaluable experience to help his patients get better. In 2015, he decided he wanted to reach more people than his patients with this message. So he started The 2-Minute Fix with Dr. Scott Mills YouTube videos for quick demonstrations on improving flexibility, minimizing pain, and getting the body to become mobile again.

The 2 Minute Fix: When Should I Mobilize?

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mills talk about how he produces “The Balanced Bites Podcast,” how he got interested in chiropractic, how a chiropractor approaches healthcare that is different than traditional medical care, why you can’t separate the mind and the body, how some stress can be good, how he gets his patients to relax and reduce their damaging stress, why increasing low-level movement regularly is so vital, how the mandate to exercise can be misunderstood by many people, why joint movement is important to keep full range of motion, why he decided to start doing his YouTube videos, how to effectively stretch your hamstrings (and it’s not the way you’ve seen), the most common chronic pain his patients tend to deal with, why the focus needs to be away from treating pain and more on the root cause of the pain, the response he’s received from his videos, his longer-form video series he wants to make available soon, and his side project Divorce Wingman to help guys going through divorce.

As the progression of the low-carb, high-fat message continues to make waves amongst patients who are seeing dramatic changes in their weight and health, it makes you wonder how so many physicians and other medical professionals can continue to ignore this. From weight loss to diabetes and cardiovascular risk markers all improving on a well-formulated ketogenic diet, it seems any primary care doctor would want to welcome in another invaluable tool to their arsenal of providing the very best care for the people who come to see them. That’s exactly what happened for a physician in Lafayette, Indiana named Dr. Sarah Hallberg who took it upon herself to get educated on how carbohydrate restriction could help her see the desired results in her patients. The phenomenal results she began seeing was proof positive this was the right direction for her to shift her practice from being a primary care physician to become the medical director and founder of the Indiana University-Arnett Health Medical Weight Loss Program where our host Jimmy Moore spoke to Dr. Hallberg’s patients in 2014. Dr. Hallberg is very effective at communicating through her popular teaching videos she posts at her “Fitter U” website which caught the attention of the TEDx people who asked her to speak at their 2015 TEDx PurdueU event (watch Dr. Hallberg’s incredible presentation on reversing Type 2 diabetes below).

LISTEN TO DR. SARAH HALLBERG’S TEDX PURDUEU TALK

Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Hallberg discuss how the popularity of her TEDx talk shows how desperate people are for the low-carb message, the lack of understanding patients have about what they are doing to control their diabetes, how she got into medicine later in life than most after having an interest in exercise physiology, when she was asked to start a weight loss program at her hospital, how being a “legal drug dealer” made her feel like she was part of the problem, why she was a Dr. Dean Ornish fan while in medical school, why this is not a diet but a lifestyle, why the excuses that you can’t stay low-carb long-term is foolish, the folly of trying to do a low-fat, low-carb diet, whether food quality matters on a low-carb diet, the nonsense of comparing eating a real food-based low-carb diet vs. medications, why people with metabolic disease must choose between a ketogenic diet or drugs, why weight loss is the only measure of success, the cognitive dissonance of her patients, why saturated fats are critical to being successful on low-carb, why exercise is important for health but not for weight loss, why she gives her patients a MAXIMUM of 5 minutes of exercise a day, how the TEDx event happened for her and the great success it had, how she is mentoring medical school students to show them how to use low-carb diets with patients, and her upcoming research to show the efficacy of the low-carb diet on health outcomes.

There’s been a lot of accusations thrown around in the past few years regarding the impact that a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is having on the gut health of those who choose to eat this way. It’s been especially strong from various vocal members of the Paleo community who have been promoting the consumption of the so-called “safe starches” and other such foods to feed the good bacteria in the gut. But some of the suggestions that have been made don’t sit well with a Walnut Creek, California-based functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Michael Ruscio who understands the need for patient individuality in treatment and that customizing a plan to take care of the microbiome while also being mindful of blood sugar and other health markers is critically important to making sure the patient is doing the right thing for them.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ruscio discuss his current work doing a pilot research study on small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), why having a SIBO is a bad thing for your health, what causes SIBO to happen, the prevalence of SIBO in our society, why doctors push grains for fiber to treat IBS, the pressure on low-carbers to eat more carbohydrates to feed gut bacteria, whether you can measure for how you can find if you do better on low-carb vs. high-carb, the carbohydrates that he recommends for people who want to tinker and test with increasing, the allergen-restricted, lower-carb diet he puts all of his patients on initially, the spectrum of low to high carb diets he uses to customize treatment for his patients, why mimicking the diet of populations with healthy microbiota is flawed, the microbiota is a reactor to the environment rather than the driver of the disease, why eating to control blood sugar is the best way to prevent disease, what kind of carbohydrates (and prebiotic as well as FODMAP foods) a ketogenic dieter can consume, the problems with uBiome and American Gut Project testing, the connection between gut health and autoimmune disease, why you need to know your fungal readings, how sleep and exercise can have a dramatic effect on your microbiota, why you don’t need fancy stool testing to get good results, the small intestinal fungal overgrowth (SIFO) issue, and whether fecal transplants can be useful to people with damaged gut health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

It can be incredibly difficult for the average, everyday person to completely grasp even the most basic health concepts leaving them completely reliant on the so-called experts to explain and educate them. Unfortunately, much of the most relevant information is being all but ignored leaving the layperson completely in the dark on topics like insulin, the negative health effects of grains, and lifestyle solutions to disease. That’s why a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based holistic pharmacist named Dr. Brian Sanderoff from WellBeingGPS.com decided to start making YouTube videos to bring his quarter century of clinical medicine knowledge and experience whittling down these healthy living topics in terms that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. He’s also the weekly host of Well Being Radio on The Patriot 960 AM KKNT in Phoenix, Arizona.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Sanderoff discuss how he was trained traditionally in pharmacology, the moment he wondered whether medicine was fixing the health problems of his patients, how he was the “crazy guy” on the radio talking alternative health in the 1990’s, the misinformation that is coming from special interests impacting the way we look at health, how the “number needed to treat” that is off the radar screen of most medical professionals, why your quality of life goes down with lower cholesterol, the medical arrogance that keeps grains in our diet as a healthy food, the role of homeostasis in your health, the deception that keeps people eating and living poorly under the guise of being prudent, how he got interested in the white board video concept, and how medicine always seems to ask the wrong questions that lead to the wrong solutions.

Everyone seems to have those nagging aches and pains in their body at some point in their lives. Most of the time it’s somewhere in the back area which is why chiropractic care seems to be as popular as it has ever been. For a San Francisco, California-based one named Dr. Scott Mills (aka the soon-to-be Mr. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo fame), it’s his passionate goal to help empower others with the knowledge and tools they need to create an optimal, pain-free life. With a Master’s degree in Exercise Science as well as working as a collegiate Certified Athletic Trainer for 6 years prior to his chiropractic career, Dr. Mills has garnered tons of invaluable experience to help his patients get better. In 2015, he decided he wanted to reach more people than his patients with this message. So he started The 2-Minute Fix with Dr. Scott Mills YouTube videos for quick demonstrations on improving flexibility, minimizing pain, and getting the body to become mobile again.

WATCH THE 2-MINUTE FIX WITH DR. SCOTT MILLS

The 2 Minute Fix: When Should I Mobilize?

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mills talk about how he produces “The Balanced Bites Podcast,” how he got interested in chiropractic, how a chiropractor approaches healthcare that is different than traditional medical care, why you can’t separate the mind and the body, how some stress can be good, how he gets his patients to relax and reduce their damaging stress, why increasing low-level movement regularly is so vital, how the mandate to exercise can be misunderstood by many people, why joint movement is important to keep full range of motion, why he decided to start doing his YouTube videos, how to effectively stretch your hamstrings (and it’s not the way you’ve seen), the most common chronic pain his patients tend to deal with, why the focus needs to be away from treating pain and more on the root cause of the pain, the response he’s received from his videos, his longer-form video series he wants to make available soon, and his side project Divorce Wingman to help guys going through divorce.

As the progression of the low-carb, high-fat message continues to make waves amongst patients who are seeing dramatic changes in their weight and health, it makes you wonder how so many physicians and other medical professionals can continue to ignore this. From weight loss to diabetes and cardiovascular risk markers all improving on a well-formulated ketogenic diet, it seems any primary care doctor would want to welcome in another invaluable tool to their arsenal of providing the very best care for the people who come to see them. That’s exactly what happened for a physician in Lafayette, Indiana named Dr. Sarah Hallberg who took it upon herself to get educated on how carbohydrate restriction could help her see the desired results in her patients. The phenomenal results she began seeing was proof positive this was the right direction for her to shift her practice from being a primary care physician to become the medical director and founder of the Indiana University-Arnett Health Medical Weight Loss Program where our host Jimmy Moore spoke to Dr. Hallberg’s patients in 2014. Dr. Hallberg is very effective at communicating through her popular teaching videos she posts at her “Fitter U” website which caught the attention of the TEDx people who asked her to speak at their 2015 TEDx PurdueU event (watch Dr. Hallberg’s incredible presentation on reversing Type 2 diabetes below).

LISTEN TO DR. SARAH HALLBERG’S TEDX PURDUEU TALK

Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Hallberg discuss how the popularity of her TEDx talk shows how desperate people are for the low-carb message, the lack of understanding patients have about what they are doing to control their diabetes, how she got into medicine later in life than most after having an interest in exercise physiology, when she was asked to start a weight loss program at her hospital, how being a “legal drug dealer” made her feel like she was part of the problem, why she was a Dr. Dean Ornish fan while in medical school, why this is not a diet but a lifestyle, why the excuses that you can’t stay low-carb long-term is foolish, the folly of trying to do a low-fat, low-carb diet, whether food quality matters on a low-carb diet, the nonsense of comparing eating a real food-based low-carb diet vs. medications, why people with metabolic disease must choose between a ketogenic diet or drugs, why weight loss is the only measure of success, the cognitive dissonance of her patients, why saturated fats are critical to being successful on low-carb, why exercise is important for health but not for weight loss, why she gives her patients a MAXIMUM of 5 minutes of exercise a day, how the TEDx event happened for her and the great success it had, how she is mentoring medical school students to show them how to use low-carb diets with patients, and her upcoming research to show the efficacy of the low-carb diet on health outcomes.

There’s been a lot of accusations thrown around in the past few years regarding the impact that a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is having on the gut health of those who choose to eat this way. It’s been especially strong from various vocal members of the Paleo community who have been promoting the consumption of the so-called “safe starches” and other such foods to feed the good bacteria in the gut. But some of the suggestions that have been made don’t sit well with a Walnut Creek, California-based functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Michael Ruscio who understands the need for patient individuality in treatment and that customizing a plan to take care of the microbiome while also being mindful of blood sugar and other health markers is critically important to making sure the patient is doing the right thing for them.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ruscio discuss his current work doing a pilot research study on small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), why having a SIBO is a bad thing for your health, what causes SIBO to happen, the prevalence of SIBO in our society, why doctors push grains for fiber to treat IBS, the pressure on low-carbers to eat more carbohydrates to feed gut bacteria, whether you can measure for how you can find if you do better on low-carb vs. high-carb, the carbohydrates that he recommends for people who want to tinker and test with increasing, the allergen-restricted, lower-carb diet he puts all of his patients on initially, the spectrum of low to high carb diets he uses to customize treatment for his patients, why mimicking the diet of populations with healthy microbiota is flawed, the microbiota is a reactor to the environment rather than the driver of the disease, why eating to control blood sugar is the best way to prevent disease, what kind of carbohydrates (and prebiotic as well as FODMAP foods) a ketogenic dieter can consume, the problems with uBiome and American Gut Project testing, the connection between gut health and autoimmune disease, why you need to know your fungal readings, how sleep and exercise can have a dramatic effect on your microbiota, why you don’t need fancy stool testing to get good results, the small intestinal fungal overgrowth (SIFO) issue, and whether fecal transplants can be useful to people with damaged gut health.

It can be incredibly difficult for the average, everyday person to completely grasp even the most basic health concepts leaving them completely reliant on the so-called experts to explain and educate them. Unfortunately, much of the most relevant information is being all but ignored leaving the layperson completely in the dark on topics like insulin, the negative health effects of grains, and lifestyle solutions to disease. That’s why a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based holistic pharmacist named Dr. Brian Sanderoff from WellBeingGPS.com decided to start making YouTube videos to bring his quarter century of clinical medicine knowledge and experience whittling down these healthy living topics in terms that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. He’s also the weekly host of Well Being Radio on The Patriot 960 AM KKNT in Phoenix, Arizona.

DR. BRIAN SANDEROFF’S EDUCATIONAL YOUTUBE VIDEOS

Insulin Levels are the Key to Everything

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Sanderoff discuss how he was trained traditionally in pharmacology, the moment he wondered whether medicine was fixing the health problems of his patients, how he was the “crazy guy” on the radio talking alternative health in the 1990’s, the misinformation that is coming from special interests impacting the way we look at health, how the “number needed to treat” that is off the radar screen of most medical professionals, why your quality of life goes down with lower cholesterol, the medical arrogance that keeps grains in our diet as a healthy food, the role of homeostasis in your health, the deception that keeps people eating and living poorly under the guise of being prudent, how he got interested in the white board video concept, and how medicine always seems to ask the wrong questions that lead to the wrong solutions.

Everyone seems to have those nagging aches and pains in their body at some point in their lives. Most of the time it’s somewhere in the back area which is why chiropractic care seems to be as popular as it has ever been. For a San Francisco, California-based one named Dr. Scott Mills (aka the soon-to-be Mr. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo fame), it’s his passionate goal to help empower others with the knowledge and tools they need to create an optimal, pain-free life. With a Master’s degree in Exercise Science as well as working as a collegiate Certified Athletic Trainer for 6 years prior to his chiropractic career, Dr. Mills has garnered tons of invaluable experience to help his patients get better. In 2015, he decided he wanted to reach more people than his patients with this message. So he started The 2-Minute Fix with Dr. Scott Mills YouTube videos for quick demonstrations on improving flexibility, minimizing pain, and getting the body to become mobile again.

WATCH THE 2-MINUTE FIX WITH DR. SCOTT MILLS

The 2 Minute Fix: When Should I Mobilize?

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mills talk about how he produces “The Balanced Bites Podcast,” how he got interested in chiropractic, how a chiropractor approaches healthcare that is different than traditional medical care, why you can’t separate the mind and the body, how some stress can be good, how he gets his patients to relax and reduce their damaging stress, why increasing low-level movement regularly is so vital, how the mandate to exercise can be misunderstood by many people, why joint movement is important to keep full range of motion, why he decided to start doing his YouTube videos, how to effectively stretch your hamstrings (and it’s not the way you’ve seen), the most common chronic pain his patients tend to deal with, why the focus needs to be away from treating pain and more on the root cause of the pain, the response he’s received from his videos, his longer-form video series he wants to make available soon, and his side project Divorce Wingman to help guys going through divorce.

As the progression of the low-carb, high-fat message continues to make waves amongst patients who are seeing dramatic changes in their weight and health, it makes you wonder how so many physicians and other medical professionals can continue to ignore this. From weight loss to diabetes and cardiovascular risk markers all improving on a well-formulated ketogenic diet, it seems any primary care doctor would want to welcome in another invaluable tool to their arsenal of providing the very best care for the people who come to see them. That’s exactly what happened for a physician in Lafayette, Indiana named Dr. Sarah Hallberg who took it upon herself to get educated on how carbohydrate restriction could help her see the desired results in her patients. The phenomenal results she began seeing was proof positive this was the right direction for her to shift her practice from being a primary care physician to become the medical director and founder of the Indiana University-Arnett Health Medical Weight Loss Program where our host Jimmy Moore spoke to Dr. Hallberg’s patients in 2014. Dr. Hallberg is very effective at communicating through her popular teaching videos she posts at her “Fitter U” website which caught the attention of the TEDx people who asked her to speak at their 2015 TEDx PurdueU event (watch Dr. Hallberg’s incredible presentation on reversing Type 2 diabetes below).

LISTEN TO DR. SARAH HALLBERG’S TEDX PURDUEU TALK

Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Hallberg discuss how the popularity of her TEDx talk shows how desperate people are for the low-carb message, the lack of understanding patients have about what they are doing to control their diabetes, how she got into medicine later in life than most after having an interest in exercise physiology, when she was asked to start a weight loss program at her hospital, how being a “legal drug dealer” made her feel like she was part of the problem, why she was a Dr. Dean Ornish fan while in medical school, why this is not a diet but a lifestyle, why the excuses that you can’t stay low-carb long-term is foolish, the folly of trying to do a low-fat, low-carb diet, whether food quality matters on a low-carb diet, the nonsense of comparing eating a real food-based low-carb diet vs. medications, why people with metabolic disease must choose between a ketogenic diet or drugs, why weight loss is the only measure of success, the cognitive dissonance of her patients, why saturated fats are critical to being successful on low-carb, why exercise is important for health but not for weight loss, why she gives her patients a MAXIMUM of 5 minutes of exercise a day, how the TEDx event happened for her and the great success it had, how she is mentoring medical school students to show them how to use low-carb diets with patients, and her upcoming research to show the efficacy of the low-carb diet on health outcomes.

985: Dr. Michael Ruscio Shares The Truth About Low-Carb Diets And Gut Health

There’s been a lot of accusations thrown around in the past few years regarding the impact that a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is having on the gut health of those who choose to eat this way. It’s been especially strong from various vocal members of the Paleo community who have been promoting the consumption of the so-called “safe starches” and other such foods to feed the good bacteria in the gut. But some of the suggestions that have been made don’t sit well with a Walnut Creek, California-based functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Michael Ruscio who understands the need for patient individuality in treatment and that customizing a plan to take care of the microbiome while also being mindful of blood sugar and other health markers is critically important to making sure the patient is doing the right thing for them.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ruscio discuss his current work doing a pilot research study on small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), why having a SIBO is a bad thing for your health, what causes SIBO to happen, the prevalence of SIBO in our society, why doctors push grains for fiber to treat IBS, the pressure on low-carbers to eat more carbohydrates to feed gut bacteria, whether you can measure for how you can find if you do better on low-carb vs. high-carb, the carbohydrates that he recommends for people who want to tinker and test with increasing, the allergen-restricted, lower-carb diet he puts all of his patients on initially, the spectrum of low to high carb diets he uses to customize treatment for his patients, why mimicking the diet of populations with healthy microbiota is flawed, the microbiota is a reactor to the environment rather than the driver of the disease, why eating to control blood sugar is the best way to prevent disease, what kind of carbohydrates (and prebiotic as well as FODMAP foods) a ketogenic dieter can consume, the problems with uBiome and American Gut Project testing, the connection between gut health and autoimmune disease, why you need to know your fungal readings, how sleep and exercise can have a dramatic effect on your microbiota, why you don’t need fancy stool testing to get good results, the small intestinal fungal overgrowth (SIFO) issue, and whether fecal transplants can be useful to people with damaged gut health.

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

Everyone seems to have those nagging aches and pains in their body at some point in their lives. Most of the time it’s somewhere in the back area which is why chiropractic care seems to be as popular as it has ever been. For a San Francisco, California-based one named Dr. Scott Mills (aka the soon-to-be Mr. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo fame), it’s his passionate goal to help empower others with the knowledge and tools they need to create an optimal, pain-free life. With a Master’s degree in Exercise Science as well as working as a collegiate Certified Athletic Trainer for 6 years prior to his chiropractic career, Dr. Mills has garnered tons of invaluable experience to help his patients get better. In 2015, he decided he wanted to reach more people than his patients with this message. So he started The 2-Minute Fix with Dr. Scott Mills YouTube videos for quick demonstrations on improving flexibility, minimizing pain, and getting the body to become mobile again.

WATCH THE 2-MINUTE FIX WITH DR. SCOTT MILLS

The 2 Minute Fix: When Should I Mobilize?

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mills talk about how he produces “The Balanced Bites Podcast,” how he got interested in chiropractic, how a chiropractor approaches healthcare that is different than traditional medical care, why you can’t separate the mind and the body, how some stress can be good, how he gets his patients to relax and reduce their damaging stress, why increasing low-level movement regularly is so vital, how the mandate to exercise can be misunderstood by many people, why joint movement is important to keep full range of motion, why he decided to start doing his YouTube videos, how to effectively stretch your hamstrings (and it’s not the way you’ve seen), the most common chronic pain his patients tend to deal with, why the focus needs to be away from treating pain and more on the root cause of the pain, the response he’s received from his videos, his longer-form video series he wants to make available soon, and his side project Divorce Wingman to help guys going through divorce.

As the progression of the low-carb, high-fat message continues to make waves amongst patients who are seeing dramatic changes in their weight and health, it makes you wonder how so many physicians and other medical professionals can continue to ignore this. From weight loss to diabetes and cardiovascular risk markers all improving on a well-formulated ketogenic diet, it seems any primary care doctor would want to welcome in another invaluable tool to their arsenal of providing the very best care for the people who come to see them. That’s exactly what happened for a physician in Lafayette, Indiana named Dr. Sarah Hallberg who took it upon herself to get educated on how carbohydrate restriction could help her see the desired results in her patients. The phenomenal results she began seeing was proof positive this was the right direction for her to shift her practice from being a primary care physician to become the medical director and founder of the Indiana University-Arnett Health Medical Weight Loss Program where our host Jimmy Moore spoke to Dr. Hallberg’s patients in 2014. Dr. Hallberg is very effective at communicating through her popular teaching videos she posts at her “Fitter U” website which caught the attention of the TEDx people who asked her to speak at their 2015 TEDx PurdueU event (watch Dr. Hallberg’s incredible presentation on reversing Type 2 diabetes below).

LISTEN TO DR. SARAH HALLBERG’S TEDX PURDUEU TALK

Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Hallberg discuss how the popularity of her TEDx talk shows how desperate people are for the low-carb message, the lack of understanding patients have about what they are doing to control their diabetes, how she got into medicine later in life than most after having an interest in exercise physiology, when she was asked to start a weight loss program at her hospital, how being a “legal drug dealer” made her feel like she was part of the problem, why she was a Dr. Dean Ornish fan while in medical school, why this is not a diet but a lifestyle, why the excuses that you can’t stay low-carb long-term is foolish, the folly of trying to do a low-fat, low-carb diet, whether food quality matters on a low-carb diet, the nonsense of comparing eating a real food-based low-carb diet vs. medications, why people with metabolic disease must choose between a ketogenic diet or drugs, why weight loss is the only measure of success, the cognitive dissonance of her patients, why saturated fats are critical to being successful on low-carb, why exercise is important for health but not for weight loss, why she gives her patients a MAXIMUM of 5 minutes of exercise a day, how the TEDx event happened for her and the great success it had, how she is mentoring medical school students to show them how to use low-carb diets with patients, and her upcoming research to show the efficacy of the low-carb diet on health outcomes.

985: Dr. Michael Ruscio Shares The Truth About Low-Carb Diets And Gut Health

There’s been a lot of accusations thrown around in the past few years regarding the impact that a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is having on the gut health of those who choose to eat this way. It’s been especially strong from various vocal members of the Paleo community who have been promoting the consumption of the so-called “safe starches” and other such foods to feed the good bacteria in the gut. But some of the suggestions that have been made don’t sit well with a Walnut Creek, California-based functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Michael Ruscio who understands the need for patient individuality in treatment and that customizing a plan to take care of the microbiome while also being mindful of blood sugar and other health markers is critically important to making sure the patient is doing the right thing for them.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ruscio discuss his current work doing a pilot research study on small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), why having a SIBO is a bad thing for your health, what causes SIBO to happen, the prevalence of SIBO in our society, why doctors push grains for fiber to treat IBS, the pressure on low-carbers to eat more carbohydrates to feed gut bacteria, whether you can measure for how you can find if you do better on low-carb vs. high-carb, the carbohydrates that he recommends for people who want to tinker and test with increasing, the allergen-restricted, lower-carb diet he puts all of his patients on initially, the spectrum of low to high carb diets he uses to customize treatment for his patients, why mimicking the diet of populations with healthy microbiota is flawed, the microbiota is a reactor to the environment rather than the driver of the disease, why eating to control blood sugar is the best way to prevent disease, what kind of carbohydrates (and prebiotic as well as FODMAP foods) a ketogenic dieter can consume, the problems with uBiome and American Gut Project testing, the connection between gut health and autoimmune disease, why you need to know your fungal readings, how sleep and exercise can have a dramatic effect on your microbiota, why you don’t need fancy stool testing to get good results, the small intestinal fungal overgrowth (SIFO) issue, and whether fecal transplants can be useful to people with damaged gut health.

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

Everyone seems to have those nagging aches and pains in their body at some point in their lives. Most of the time it’s somewhere in the back area which is why chiropractic care seems to be as popular as it has ever been. For a San Francisco, California-based one named Dr. Scott Mills (aka the soon-to-be Mr. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo fame), it’s his passionate goal to help empower others with the knowledge and tools they need to create an optimal, pain-free life. With a Master’s degree in Exercise Science as well as working as a collegiate Certified Athletic Trainer for 6 years prior to his chiropractic career, Dr. Mills has garnered tons of invaluable experience to help his patients get better. In 2015, he decided he wanted to reach more people than his patients with this message. So he started The 2-Minute Fix with Dr. Scott Mills YouTube videos for quick demonstrations on improving flexibility, minimizing pain, and getting the body to become mobile again.

WATCH THE 2-MINUTE FIX WITH DR. SCOTT MILLS

The 2 Minute Fix: When Should I Mobilize?

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mills talk about how he produces “The Balanced Bites Podcast,” how he got interested in chiropractic, how a chiropractor approaches healthcare that is different than traditional medical care, why you can’t separate the mind and the body, how some stress can be good, how he gets his patients to relax and reduce their damaging stress, why increasing low-level movement regularly is so vital, how the mandate to exercise can be misunderstood by many people, why joint movement is important to keep full range of motion, why he decided to start doing his YouTube videos, how to effectively stretch your hamstrings (and it’s not the way you’ve seen), the most common chronic pain his patients tend to deal with, why the focus needs to be away from treating pain and more on the root cause of the pain, the response he’s received from his videos, his longer-form video series he wants to make available soon, and his side project Divorce Wingman to help guys going through divorce.

As the progression of the low-carb, high-fat message continues to make waves amongst patients who are seeing dramatic changes in their weight and health, it makes you wonder how so many physicians and other medical professionals can continue to ignore this. From weight loss to diabetes and cardiovascular risk markers all improving on a well-formulated ketogenic diet, it seems any primary care doctor would want to welcome in another invaluable tool to their arsenal of providing the very best care for the people who come to see them. That’s exactly what happened for a physician in Lafayette, Indiana named Dr. Sarah Hallberg who took it upon herself to get educated on how carbohydrate restriction could help her see the desired results in her patients. The phenomenal results she began seeing was proof positive this was the right direction for her to shift her practice from being a primary care physician to become the medical director and founder of the Indiana University-Arnett Health Medical Weight Loss Program where our host Jimmy Moore spoke to Dr. Hallberg’s patients in 2014. Dr. Hallberg is very effective at communicating through her popular teaching videos she posts at her “Fitter U” website which caught the attention of the TEDx people who asked her to speak at their 2015 TEDx PurdueU event (watch Dr. Hallberg’s incredible presentation on reversing Type 2 diabetes below).

LISTEN TO DR. SARAH HALLBERG’S TEDX PURDUEU TALK

Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Hallberg discuss how the popularity of her TEDx talk shows how desperate people are for the low-carb message, the lack of understanding patients have about what they are doing to control their diabetes, how she got into medicine later in life than most after having an interest in exercise physiology, when she was asked to start a weight loss program at her hospital, how being a “legal drug dealer” made her feel like she was part of the problem, why she was a Dr. Dean Ornish fan while in medical school, why this is not a diet but a lifestyle, why the excuses that you can’t stay low-carb long-term is foolish, the folly of trying to do a low-fat, low-carb diet, whether food quality matters on a low-carb diet, the nonsense of comparing eating a real food-based low-carb diet vs. medications, why people with metabolic disease must choose between a ketogenic diet or drugs, why weight loss is the only measure of success, the cognitive dissonance of her patients, why saturated fats are critical to being successful on low-carb, why exercise is important for health but not for weight loss, why she gives her patients a MAXIMUM of 5 minutes of exercise a day, how the TEDx event happened for her and the great success it had, how she is mentoring medical school students to show them how to use low-carb diets with patients, and her upcoming research to show the efficacy of the low-carb diet on health outcomes.

985: Dr. Michael Ruscio Shares The Truth About Low-Carb Diets And Gut Health

There’s been a lot of accusations thrown around in the past few years regarding the impact that a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is having on the gut health of those who choose to eat this way. It’s been especially strong from various vocal members of the Paleo community who have been promoting the consumption of the so-called “safe starches” and other such foods to feed the good bacteria in the gut. But some of the suggestions that have been made don’t sit well with a Walnut Creek, California-based functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Michael Ruscio who understands the need for patient individuality in treatment and that customizing a plan to take care of the microbiome while also being mindful of blood sugar and other health markers is critically important to making sure the patient is doing the right thing for them.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ruscio discuss his current work doing a pilot research study on small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), why having a SIBO is a bad thing for your health, what causes SIBO to happen, the prevalence of SIBO in our society, why doctors push grains for fiber to treat IBS, the pressure on low-carbers to eat more carbohydrates to feed gut bacteria, whether you can measure for how you can find if you do better on low-carb vs. high-carb, the carbohydrates that he recommends for people who want to tinker and test with increasing, the allergen-restricted, lower-carb diet he puts all of his patients on initially, the spectrum of low to high carb diets he uses to customize treatment for his patients, why mimicking the diet of populations with healthy microbiota is flawed, the microbiota is a reactor to the environment rather than the driver of the disease, why eating to control blood sugar is the best way to prevent disease, what kind of carbohydrates (and prebiotic as well as FODMAP foods) a ketogenic dieter can consume, the problems with uBiome and American Gut Project testing, the connection between gut health and autoimmune disease, why you need to know your fungal readings, how sleep and exercise can have a dramatic effect on your microbiota, why you don’t need fancy stool testing to get good results, the small intestinal fungal overgrowth (SIFO) issue, and whether fecal transplants can be useful to people with damaged gut health.

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

It can be incredibly difficult for the average, everyday person to completely grasp even the most basic health concepts leaving them completely reliant on the so-called experts to explain and educate them. Unfortunately, much of the most relevant information is being all but ignored leaving the layperson completely in the dark on topics like insulin, the negative health effects of grains, and lifestyle solutions to disease. That’s why a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based holistic pharmacist named Dr. Brian Sanderoff from WellBeingGPS.com decided to start making YouTube videos to bring his quarter century of clinical medicine knowledge and experience whittling down these healthy living topics in terms that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. He’s also the weekly host of Well Being Radio on The Patriot 960 AM KKNT in Phoenix, Arizona.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mills talk about how he produces “The Balanced Bites Podcast,” how he got interested in chiropractic, how a chiropractor approaches healthcare that is different than traditional medical care, why you can’t separate the mind and the body, how some stress can be good, how he gets his patients to relax and reduce their damaging stress, why increasing low-level movement regularly is so vital, how the mandate to exercise can be misunderstood by many people, why joint movement is important to keep full range of motion, why he decided to start doing his YouTube videos, how to effectively stretch your hamstrings (and it’s not the way you’ve seen), the most common chronic pain his patients tend to deal with, why the focus needs to be away from treating pain and more on the root cause of the pain, the response he’s received from his videos, his longer-form video series he wants to make available soon, and his side project Divorce Wingman to help guys going through divorce.

As the progression of the low-carb, high-fat message continues to make waves amongst patients who are seeing dramatic changes in their weight and health, it makes you wonder how so many physicians and other medical professionals can continue to ignore this. From weight loss to diabetes and cardiovascular risk markers all improving on a well-formulated ketogenic diet, it seems any primary care doctor would want to welcome in another invaluable tool to their arsenal of providing the very best care for the people who come to see them. That’s exactly what happened for a physician in Lafayette, Indiana named Dr. Sarah Hallberg who took it upon herself to get educated on how carbohydrate restriction could help her see the desired results in her patients. The phenomenal results she began seeing was proof positive this was the right direction for her to shift her practice from being a primary care physician to become the medical director and founder of the Indiana University-Arnett Health Medical Weight Loss Program where our host Jimmy Moore spoke to Dr. Hallberg’s patients in 2014. Dr. Hallberg is very effective at communicating through her popular teaching videos she posts at her “Fitter U” website which caught the attention of the TEDx people who asked her to speak at their 2015 TEDx PurdueU event (watch Dr. Hallberg’s incredible presentation on reversing Type 2 diabetes below).

LISTEN TO DR. SARAH HALLBERG’S TEDX PURDUEU TALK

Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Hallberg discuss how the popularity of her TEDx talk shows how desperate people are for the low-carb message, the lack of understanding patients have about what they are doing to control their diabetes, how she got into medicine later in life than most after having an interest in exercise physiology, when she was asked to start a weight loss program at her hospital, how being a “legal drug dealer” made her feel like she was part of the problem, why she was a Dr. Dean Ornish fan while in medical school, why this is not a diet but a lifestyle, why the excuses that you can’t stay low-carb long-term is foolish, the folly of trying to do a low-fat, low-carb diet, whether food quality matters on a low-carb diet, the nonsense of comparing eating a real food-based low-carb diet vs. medications, why people with metabolic disease must choose between a ketogenic diet or drugs, why weight loss is the only measure of success, the cognitive dissonance of her patients, why saturated fats are critical to being successful on low-carb, why exercise is important for health but not for weight loss, why she gives her patients a MAXIMUM of 5 minutes of exercise a day, how the TEDx event happened for her and the great success it had, how she is mentoring medical school students to show them how to use low-carb diets with patients, and her upcoming research to show the efficacy of the low-carb diet on health outcomes.

There’s been a lot of accusations thrown around in the past few years regarding the impact that a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is having on the gut health of those who choose to eat this way. It’s been especially strong from various vocal members of the Paleo community who have been promoting the consumption of the so-called “safe starches” and other such foods to feed the good bacteria in the gut. But some of the suggestions that have been made don’t sit well with a Walnut Creek, California-based functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Michael Ruscio who understands the need for patient individuality in treatment and that customizing a plan to take care of the microbiome while also being mindful of blood sugar and other health markers is critically important to making sure the patient is doing the right thing for them.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ruscio discuss his current work doing a pilot research study on small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), why having a SIBO is a bad thing for your health, what causes SIBO to happen, the prevalence of SIBO in our society, why doctors push grains for fiber to treat IBS, the pressure on low-carbers to eat more carbohydrates to feed gut bacteria, whether you can measure for how you can find if you do better on low-carb vs. high-carb, the carbohydrates that he recommends for people who want to tinker and test with increasing, the allergen-restricted, lower-carb diet he puts all of his patients on initially, the spectrum of low to high carb diets he uses to customize treatment for his patients, why mimicking the diet of populations with healthy microbiota is flawed, the microbiota is a reactor to the environment rather than the driver of the disease, why eating to control blood sugar is the best way to prevent disease, what kind of carbohydrates (and prebiotic as well as FODMAP foods) a ketogenic dieter can consume, the problems with uBiome and American Gut Project testing, the connection between gut health and autoimmune disease, why you need to know your fungal readings, how sleep and exercise can have a dramatic effect on your microbiota, why you don’t need fancy stool testing to get good results, the small intestinal fungal overgrowth (SIFO) issue, and whether fecal transplants can be useful to people with damaged gut health.

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

It can be incredibly difficult for the average, everyday person to completely grasp even the most basic health concepts leaving them completely reliant on the so-called experts to explain and educate them. Unfortunately, much of the most relevant information is being all but ignored leaving the layperson completely in the dark on topics like insulin, the negative health effects of grains, and lifestyle solutions to disease. That’s why a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based holistic pharmacist named Dr. Brian Sanderoff from WellBeingGPS.com decided to start making YouTube videos to bring his quarter century of clinical medicine knowledge and experience whittling down these healthy living topics in terms that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. He’s also the weekly host of Well Being Radio on The Patriot 960 AM KKNT in Phoenix, Arizona.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Sanderoff discuss how he was trained traditionally in pharmacology, the moment he wondered whether medicine was fixing the health problems of his patients, how he was the “crazy guy” on the radio talking alternative health in the 1990’s, the misinformation that is coming from special interests impacting the way we look at health, how the “number needed to treat” that is off the radar screen of most medical professionals, why your quality of life goes down with lower cholesterol, the medical arrogance that keeps grains in our diet as a healthy food, the role of homeostasis in your health, the deception that keeps people eating and living poorly under the guise of being prudent, how he got interested in the white board video concept, and how medicine always seems to ask the wrong questions that lead to the wrong solutions.

Everyone seems to have those nagging aches and pains in their body at some point in their lives. Most of the time it’s somewhere in the back area which is why chiropractic care seems to be as popular as it has ever been. For a San Francisco, California-based one named Dr. Scott Mills (aka the soon-to-be Mr. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo fame), it’s his passionate goal to help empower others with the knowledge and tools they need to create an optimal, pain-free life. With a Master’s degree in Exercise Science as well as working as a collegiate Certified Athletic Trainer for 6 years prior to his chiropractic career, Dr. Mills has garnered tons of invaluable experience to help his patients get better. In 2015, he decided he wanted to reach more people than his patients with this message. So he started The 2-Minute Fix with Dr. Scott Mills YouTube videos for quick demonstrations on improving flexibility, minimizing pain, and getting the body to become mobile again.

As the progression of the low-carb, high-fat message continues to make waves amongst patients who are seeing dramatic changes in their weight and health, it makes you wonder how so many physicians and other medical professionals can continue to ignore this. From weight loss to diabetes and cardiovascular risk markers all improving on a well-formulated ketogenic diet, it seems any primary care doctor would want to welcome in another invaluable tool to their arsenal of providing the very best care for the people who come to see them. That’s exactly what happened for a physician in Lafayette, Indiana named Dr. Sarah Hallberg who took it upon herself to get educated on how carbohydrate restriction could help her see the desired results in her patients. The phenomenal results she began seeing was proof positive this was the right direction for her to shift her practice from being a primary care physician to become the medical director and founder of the Indiana University-Arnett Health Medical Weight Loss Program where our host Jimmy Moore spoke to Dr. Hallberg’s patients in 2014. Dr. Hallberg is very effective at communicating through her popular teaching videos she posts at her “Fitter U” website which caught the attention of the TEDx people who asked her to speak at their 2015 TEDx PurdueU event (watch Dr. Hallberg’s incredible presentation on reversing Type 2 diabetes below).

LISTEN TO DR. SARAH HALLBERG’S TEDX PURDUEU TALK

Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Hallberg discuss how the popularity of her TEDx talk shows how desperate people are for the low-carb message, the lack of understanding patients have about what they are doing to control their diabetes, how she got into medicine later in life than most after having an interest in exercise physiology, when she was asked to start a weight loss program at her hospital, how being a “legal drug dealer” made her feel like she was part of the problem, why she was a Dr. Dean Ornish fan while in medical school, why this is not a diet but a lifestyle, why the excuses that you can’t stay low-carb long-term is foolish, the folly of trying to do a low-fat, low-carb diet, whether food quality matters on a low-carb diet, the nonsense of comparing eating a real food-based low-carb diet vs. medications, why people with metabolic disease must choose between a ketogenic diet or drugs, why weight loss is the only measure of success, the cognitive dissonance of her patients, why saturated fats are critical to being successful on low-carb, why exercise is important for health but not for weight loss, why she gives her patients a MAXIMUM of 5 minutes of exercise a day, how the TEDx event happened for her and the great success it had, how she is mentoring medical school students to show them how to use low-carb diets with patients, and her upcoming research to show the efficacy of the low-carb diet on health outcomes.

There’s been a lot of accusations thrown around in the past few years regarding the impact that a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is having on the gut health of those who choose to eat this way. It’s been especially strong from various vocal members of the Paleo community who have been promoting the consumption of the so-called “safe starches” and other such foods to feed the good bacteria in the gut. But some of the suggestions that have been made don’t sit well with a Walnut Creek, California-based functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Michael Ruscio who understands the need for patient individuality in treatment and that customizing a plan to take care of the microbiome while also being mindful of blood sugar and other health markers is critically important to making sure the patient is doing the right thing for them.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ruscio discuss his current work doing a pilot research study on small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), why having a SIBO is a bad thing for your health, what causes SIBO to happen, the prevalence of SIBO in our society, why doctors push grains for fiber to treat IBS, the pressure on low-carbers to eat more carbohydrates to feed gut bacteria, whether you can measure for how you can find if you do better on low-carb vs. high-carb, the carbohydrates that he recommends for people who want to tinker and test with increasing, the allergen-restricted, lower-carb diet he puts all of his patients on initially, the spectrum of low to high carb diets he uses to customize treatment for his patients, why mimicking the diet of populations with healthy microbiota is flawed, the microbiota is a reactor to the environment rather than the driver of the disease, why eating to control blood sugar is the best way to prevent disease, what kind of carbohydrates (and prebiotic as well as FODMAP foods) a ketogenic dieter can consume, the problems with uBiome and American Gut Project testing, the connection between gut health and autoimmune disease, why you need to know your fungal readings, how sleep and exercise can have a dramatic effect on your microbiota, why you don’t need fancy stool testing to get good results, the small intestinal fungal overgrowth (SIFO) issue, and whether fecal transplants can be useful to people with damaged gut health.

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

It can be incredibly difficult for the average, everyday person to completely grasp even the most basic health concepts leaving them completely reliant on the so-called experts to explain and educate them. Unfortunately, much of the most relevant information is being all but ignored leaving the layperson completely in the dark on topics like insulin, the negative health effects of grains, and lifestyle solutions to disease. That’s why a Hunt Valley, Maryland-based holistic pharmacist named Dr. Brian Sanderoff from WellBeingGPS.com decided to start making YouTube videos to bring his quarter century of clinical medicine knowledge and experience whittling down these healthy living topics in terms that anyone can understand and apply to their lives. He’s also the weekly host of Well Being Radio on The Patriot 960 AM KKNT in Phoenix, Arizona.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Sanderoff discuss how he was trained traditionally in pharmacology, the moment he wondered whether medicine was fixing the health problems of his patients, how he was the “crazy guy” on the radio talking alternative health in the 1990’s, the misinformation that is coming from special interests impacting the way we look at health, how the “number needed to treat” that is off the radar screen of most medical professionals, why your quality of life goes down with lower cholesterol, the medical arrogance that keeps grains in our diet as a healthy food, the role of homeostasis in your health, the deception that keeps people eating and living poorly under the guise of being prudent, how he got interested in the white board video concept, and how medicine always seems to ask the wrong questions that lead to the wrong solutions.

Everyone seems to have those nagging aches and pains in their body at some point in their lives. Most of the time it’s somewhere in the back area which is why chiropractic care seems to be as popular as it has ever been. For a San Francisco, California-based one named Dr. Scott Mills (aka the soon-to-be Mr. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo fame), it’s his passionate goal to help empower others with the knowledge and tools they need to create an optimal, pain-free life. With a Master’s degree in Exercise Science as well as working as a collegiate Certified Athletic Trainer for 6 years prior to his chiropractic career, Dr. Mills has garnered tons of invaluable experience to help his patients get better. In 2015, he decided he wanted to reach more people than his patients with this message. So he started The 2-Minute Fix with Dr. Scott Mills YouTube videos for quick demonstrations on improving flexibility, minimizing pain, and getting the body to become mobile again.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Hallberg discuss how the popularity of her TEDx talk shows how desperate people are for the low-carb message, the lack of understanding patients have about what they are doing to control their diabetes, how she got into medicine later in life than most after having an interest in exercise physiology, when she was asked to start a weight loss program at her hospital, how being a “legal drug dealer” made her feel like she was part of the problem, why she was a Dr. Dean Ornish fan while in medical school, why this is not a diet but a lifestyle, why the excuses that you can’t stay low-carb long-term is foolish, the folly of trying to do a low-fat, low-carb diet, whether food quality matters on a low-carb diet, the nonsense of comparing eating a real food-based low-carb diet vs. medications, why people with metabolic disease must choose between a ketogenic diet or drugs, why weight loss is the only measure of success, the cognitive dissonance of her patients, why saturated fats are critical to being successful on low-carb, why exercise is important for health but not for weight loss, why she gives her patients a MAXIMUM of 5 minutes of exercise a day, how the TEDx event happened for her and the great success it had, how she is mentoring medical school students to show them how to use low-carb diets with patients, and her upcoming research to show the efficacy of the low-carb diet on health outcomes.

There’s been a lot of accusations thrown around in the past few years regarding the impact that a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet is having on the gut health of those who choose to eat this way. It’s been especially strong from various vocal members of the Paleo community who have been promoting the consumption of the so-called “safe starches” and other such foods to feed the good bacteria in the gut. But some of the suggestions that have been made don’t sit well with a Walnut Creek, California-based functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Michael Ruscio who understands the need for patient individuality in treatment and that customizing a plan to take care of the microbiome while also being mindful of blood sugar and other health markers is critically important to making sure the patient is doing the right thing for them.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Ruscio discuss his current work doing a pilot research study on small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), why having a SIBO is a bad thing for your health, what causes SIBO to happen, the prevalence of SIBO in our society, why doctors push grains for fiber to treat IBS, the pressure on low-carbers to eat more carbohydrates to feed gut bacteria, whether you can measure for how you can find if you do better on low-carb vs. high-carb, the carbohydrates that he recommends for people who want to tinker and test with increasing, the allergen-restricted, lower-carb diet he puts all of his patients on initially, the spectrum of low to high carb diets he uses to customize treatment for his patients, why mimicking the diet of populations with healthy microbiota is flawed, the microbiota is a reactor to the environment rather than the driver of the disease, why eating to control blood sugar is the best way to prevent disease, what kind of carbohydrates (and prebiotic as well as FODMAP foods) a ketogenic dieter can consume, the problems with uBiome and American Gut Project testing, the connection between gut health and autoimmune disease, why you need to know your fungal readings, how sleep and exercise can have a dramatic effect on your microbiota, why you don’t need fancy stool testing to get good results, the small intestinal fungal overgrowth (SIFO) issue, and whether fecal transplants can be useful to people with damaged gut health.
