Dr. David Perlmutter is a board certified neurologist and is a Fellow of the American College of Nutrition. After publishing 6 New York Times Best selling books, his most recent publication, Drop Acid, addresses the leading cause of death on our planet, metabolic diseases. Chronic metabolic conditions are on the rise and in today’s episode he shares some simple lifestyle changes you can make today that will improve your health dramatically.
Your health is, in many ways, dictated by the interdependent relationship between your body and the resident bacteria living in your gut and your lifestyle may be disrupting that balance. Inflammation is the first sign of a major health crisis that can manifest as depression and ultimately leads to neurological decline. Dr. Perlmetter discusses promising research, indicating that inflammation can be managed by improving healthy gut bacteria with the daily consumption of specific probiotics. Everyday we are uncovering just how vital these bacteria are to our overall health.
The food you eat determines the health of your gut and subsequently your body and brain. Simply maintaining a low blood sugar, eating organic, staying active and getting enough sleep can dramatically reduce your risk of developing these metabolic diseases. We are no longer dealing with genetic predisposition because what you do everyday and what you eat has a greater influence on your hormones and will determine your health later in life.
