The importance of optimizing your gut microbiome is on the radar screen of so many researchers, practitioners, and even educated patients these days that it’s almost impossible for the rest of the world to continue to ignore it. That’s why a doctor, clinical researcher, author, podcaster and functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Michael Ruscio from DrRuscio.com (listen to his previous interview on the show in Episode 985), one of the world’s foremost authorities on gut health and digestion, is currently performing two clinical trials in the treatment of digestive conditions. He realizes that this message is the future focal point of medicine and is doing his part to take that message around the world. To that end, Dr. Ruscio will be giving a full day of talks about this subject practitioners and laypeople alike on January 17, 2016 at the (re)Find Health conference in London, England.

Meet Dr. Michael Ruscio in London, UK on January 17, 2016

Listen in as Dr. Ruscio and I share about his own gut health problems that led him to look into this, his upcoming January 17th London event, how to cut through the good and not-so-good in the microbiome research, why the recommendation to eat more carbs to feed the gut flora isn’t necessarily a good idea, the “elemental diet” concept he uses with patients, how having SIBO should change how you feed your gut bugs, what people can do to get rid of bad gut bacteria, how metabolic individuality matters when it comes to the diet that’s right for you, how you can figure out where you are on the carbohydrate spectrum, why starting low with carbohydrate intake can be better for most people, how to best optimize thyroid health, the autoimmune thyroid issue that is tied to the gut, why saying a low-carb diet damages thyroid health is dead wrong, and whether fasting would be a problem or a benefit for someone with thyroid autoimmunity. Dr. Michael Ruscio is a brilliant articulator of this complex issue and we hope you enjoy this interview with him today.

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 seems the more conventional medicine tries to deal with the chronic diseases of our modern day, the more stark their failure at getting to the root causes of these health problems appears. That’s why there has been a rise in the number of Functional Medicine practitioners in recent years attempting to correct these errors and helping patients truly find a pathway back to health again. That’s the heart soul of a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based Functional Medicine practitioner and clinical nutritionist named Dr. Will Cole. He sees patients in person in the Pittsburgh area as well as via telephone or Skype around the world to help them with a wide variety of common health problems with a customized solution tailored just for them.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Cole discuss the major differences between the way Functional Medicine and Conventional Medicine handle health problems, how the labs and analysis of functional medicine doctors is different, the lack of knowledge from standard doctors regarding what to do with autoimmune disease, the problem with only looking at TSH to determine overall thyroid health, the carbohydrate connection to diabetes, and so much more! If you’re fed up with the mainstream medicine approach to treating your health, then you won’t want to miss this special interview with Dr. Cole.
