Welcome to -- daily practice till dawn. Boston -- integrated health news and total wellness posted by doctor Lindsay -- -- internationally acclaimed expert in medical sciences medical nutrition. And a best selling all the. Good mid morning Boston. I'm your host Lindsay -- and and we're gonna jump right into the guts of this talk because that's. What this radio show is about it's about your gut and the brand new updates in health information to help keep your gut healthier. Because we now learn that. Health does begin in the gut so we're going to be talking about the long term use of that little purple pill those of you out there and it it it is. The most commonly prescribed medication. Which are acid blockers what are the negative results that we're gonna talk about. The gut and the little purple pill. We're gonna talk about gotten antibiotics and what's really going on with that. -- -- in colorectal cancer in the good and bad bugs inside your gut that what you risk or protect you. Against colorectal cancer what about geriatric surgery in the gut and what about. Hold her reign in the community inside the cut. Now labeled the microbe by home. An autoimmune diseases yes the gut is front center stage along with nutrition. And health and you're gonna hear about it today so first up. Is an article that just came out December 10 in the journal the American Medical Association. About the side effects. Of those pills that you went cheered dot PG -- had some heartburn and he said. You've got heard. Or a little bit of irritation in your lower esophagus called savage died as he makes too much acid could he said -- -- -- sensations. So they wrote to the script. Ulcer medications. What's the new issue. With ulcer medications. Well it's pretty big. This came out just recently. This week it's called the long term use of common heartburn and ulcer medications being linked to what. Of vitamin B twelve deficiency. You know in the last few years. There's been quite a number of epidemiological studies that have clearly linked. Taking acid blockers. With the reduction. Of -- essential magnesium inside cells intra cellular -- the most common side effect. Of low magnesium inside cells is fatigue. Muscle pain and aches which you might go get another -- to take care of constipation. Magnesium is a co factor. For thousands of and somatic reactions. And so I don't know how often if the doctor hands you. A script for NASA blocking medication. -- they recommend magnesium. Now there's another vitamin. That was a mineral. That is being linked to an issue with taking these ulcer medications. It appears really. Every single drug has the shadow side of -- some specific nutrients out of your body. And as we start learning more and more and investigating the role of -- nutrition. We find that more and more drugs. Do link. Vitamin B twelve out of that body and now we're seeing that ulcer medications which are prescribed for heartburn. As well as ulcer can be a problem. This you're gonna hear the whole psychology of this research is I talk to you about this in just a little bit last night. Is I was lingering on the couch relaxing from the day of seeing patients on a day. There was a commercial that came on and there were all these purple people all looking real happy with their arms up in the air. Hundreds and hundreds of purple people that all merged merged together until all was reduced down to a little purple pill. And it was the commercial for a purple pill which is an -- blocker which were now talking about this latest research in this week. The image of hundreds to thousands of purple people all coalescing into this purple pill. Gave you the idea that lots of people can take this it's a global issue and in fact it's true that. Acid blocking Mets acid suppressing medications are among the most commonly prescribed. Pharmaceuticals in the United States in 2012. About. Sixteen million people. Received 157. Million prescriptions. Per class of anti. -- medications known as the proton pump inhibitors so. If left untreated in your honor proton pop and hip hip that are. You can develop. Vitamin B twelve deficiency in this was research that came from almost 26000. Adults from the Kaiser Permanente. Center. They looked at electronic health records including. Diagnosis. Pharmacy orders laboratory results. Basically almost 26000. People who were diagnosed with vitamin B twelve deficiency. In northern California when -- practice they're at -- patients to were part of the Kaiser Permanente team. And this was between 1997. And 2011 so it's really recent data. And this data was compared with. About a 184000. People who did not get vitamin B twelve deficiency. During the same -- period. Now this is the first. Large population based study linking vitamin B twelve deficiency to -- is pressing medications. And so. What they found was that patients who took PPI is proton pump inhibitors that little purple pill. For more than two years. Had a 65%. Increase in their risk of B twelve deficiency. Now this is really -- big deal because B twelve deficiency. Can increase your risk of dementia the rain. Is made up with essential fatty acids and B vitamins that's what makes up your brain you especially need B twelve I've seen in the clinic where I work in Tulsa. Patients who are starting to have cognitive decline their in their eighty's and ninety's they start getting B twelve shots they start getting their. Cognitive functioning back. The brain is made up of B vitamins and essential fatty acids vitamin B twelve deficiency. Can make you much more prone to nerve damage neuropathy how many people are out there on GAAP repentant and other -- Janet. -- -- Because they actually have a nutrient deficiency. Which might be what we call. And I actress -- cut back because they're taking something else that's actually causing the deficiency that's been causing the expression of that deficiency. Which is nerve damage did you get treated for the pain from the nerve damage without figuring out. What caused. -- nerve damage that's difference with integrated. Medicine. We -- trying to find out the cause wife got the symptoms screaming at you the pain. And senior quality of life in the first place rather than just continually throwing another mad at you for. The symptom. Vitamin B twelve deficiency can put you more risk of Anemia. And other medical complications. And some of which are irreversible. So the gastroenterology is two headed the study at Kaiser Permanente Douglas Corey. He's also -- research scientist dares to the higher the -- is she took. Of the acid suppressing -- We're associated with an increased risk so we called -- dose dependent. Lower doses have a little bit less. A vitamin. And people who are on the proton pump inhibitors. For at least two years but the ones that had the most lost now. Proton pump inhibitors and related class of anti acid medications called. This to mean two receptor. -- they're usually prescribed by physicians. Just handed really freely to somebody who says I'm having discomfort after I eat. What is one of the first things positions are supposed to do. Cause no harm and the FDA is so down on new -- articles. And a lot of these proton pump inhibitors are now sold -- OTC. Over the counter products. I don't understand I'm not for more regulation that's what it's not going to protect us and keep us safe. The big deal. Is radio shows. And books and lectures and anywhere podcasts were you can get information to empower yourself. And find out more about what's going on I don't want more regulation I just want more people to be empowered. You don't want the government telling you what you can and you can't do. You wanna be more informed. That's the trick that the deal that's the whole banana knowledge. Knowledge is power. And that's why we've got shows like this to help you increase your choices so the first thing when you start having heartburn. Often people can have heart and because they have two little stomach acid I had. Actually. -- machine designed to check the amount of stomach -- today the stomach can produce during meals called Heidelberg. Gastric analysis unit cost about a 145000. Dollars. We had a full room designated for this treatment and her -- time because each test might take from four to six hours and read. We ran in my California practiced at the time. Thousands and thousands of tests and we discovered. That more people who have heart -- Habit because they're actually low and stomach acid. But some there is a small minority that habit because they have too much silicon. Go either way it can also get. The sensation of stomach acid by consuming foods that your body has an adverse reaction to not necessarily. An immune globulin -- classic. Allergic reaction. But a stressed -- reactions so food sensitivities. Intolerance is there a big part also of identifying what might he giving you. A stomach acid but among the 26000. Patients. In the study that was linking B twelve deficiency. Which is. Proton pump inhibitors. Twelve percentage used PPIs for at least two years compared with seven point 2% of the control patients. And that really gets me is that the ultimate. Conclusion of the researchers of this project was this researcher raises the question this is a quota whether people are taking acid suppressing medications long term should be. Screamed. Or vitamin B twelve deficiency because it's a simple cheap test. And it's an effective way of managing the vitamin deficiency it's found so they're saying maybe we should test board if -- on this med. I find that. Extremely. Stupid statement. We should why should we wait. Take medication. That is linked with the vitamin deficiency. In debate whether we should screen you to find out if you have it. If you're on that -- take some extra B vitamins that's the deal. For at least simple especially B twelve. -- Mark Cogent thought process is. Why are you having heartburn in the first place even if it's low west that are too much tested. What are you eating too much caffeine too many spices you don't make enough stomach -- because of all this stress in your life that sells the product -- that.

I'm your host Lindsey Burke CNN it's the Christmas season I just love this my birthday is Christmas Eve so. It's kind of a double. And I'd celebrate everything I was raised Jewish and I'm kind of more messianic and I love having all of the celebrations because the bottom line edit the messages. Goodwill toward men and women. So we are talking about got health today we were just linking a new study. That showed that the use of -- antacid medications. Can put you at risk of vitamin B twelve deficiency in let's take a look at some other information that's coming out about the cut. You know that god is so helpful I have had a look out for many years that's been selling robustly for fourteen years -- Healthy digestion the natural way. It was published by wiley and sons. Who just sold most of their trade books to Ted Turner's old company called turner. And I'm now doing a -- -- edition for them we just signed a contract this week because the -- is so much in the news today. And let's talk about that -- bacteria and a new study that just came out. December 6 in the journal of the National Cancer Institute taking a look at people are prone to colon cancer. This is an issue if your mom had colon cancer your dad or even if you're -- growers even if they're benign polyps 'cause there's nasty polyps which are. More likely turn malignant and there's more benign polyps. But that all means that you're tending to have. Over growth. Inside the colon. And if you have a primary relative. With got colon cancer that of course which you -- at risk so what does got health have to do this week. Kind of just get tested all the time. What what is it that we can do -- pro actively. Reduce our risk. If we have a higher risk situations that this study gives us some data we can translate to our supermarket cart and into our own life. And this study was looking at what we call the gut microbe by -- Patients with colorectal cancer. Compared to patients who did not have colorectal cancer. And the results came from looking at. Fecal bacteria DNA. From almost about fifty patients with -- Colorectal cancer looking at. Eagle bacteria DNA. From almost a hundred patients. Who were matched for their age and body mass and other things that didn't have -- rectal cancer. And what was astounding. About the study. Which was done at the new York university school of medicine in New York. Was that the investigators amplified almost 800000. Genes. To take a look at the difference between -- In people with. Cancer of the -- Verses. -- material. In people who did not have colon cancer and this was the first study this is pretty big. Is the gut is now -- once again as I said center stage to compare the gut microbe bio on the people with him without colorectal cancer and looking at. What kind of bacterium that then there. Did it take home of the study. Was that researchers found. That people with colorectal cancer had. Much less diverse. Got bacteria -- gut flora. Compared to those people who did not have colorectal cancer so when you go and buy probe by addicts at people's at the pocket -- At Walgreens. What you wanna take a look translating and making science usable here is to have a really wide. Number. Of populations. Flora and you want -- vary your bottles one week one month take. One product from or the molecular another month take another product from allergy research. -- Acura because you want to expose yourself to a lot of diverse Laura. People who look like they have a lot more potential danger. Of gut disease in this case colorectal cancer. Have smaller and smaller community members of gut flora -- we translate that. That says that's one of the things you can do -- they were able to identify. Which where the bacteria is that people with. Cancer in the colon had nurses people who didn't deny I'm not gonna go into all the -- -- words. And it's their big and they won't mean that much to you but what this does say to us is that in the future when you go in for your yearly check up. And there's a lot of issues about how. Much our yearly checkup really kicks up because it's so generic. At. Very soon we should be doing some kind of check up on our gut flora because so much of our health depends on a diverse robust healthy gut flora so just keep that in mind state to and that's what's headed down the road. And that came out in the journal of the National Cancer Institute published in December 6 2013. And we're seeing more and more articles coming out. Taking a look at the -- in the role of health in fact one of the ones that's very very big is. Linking. Changes in our gut bacteria. With our risk of autoimmune diseases especially type one diabetes. Which most happens toward children. That this is a big deal. This came out this November. And plus one on line and its research showing. Get the intestinal micro by home that's once again health beginning and that it. Place a large role in development of what. -- one diabetes and this came out of the Mayo Clinic. And the male clinic showed in this research but gluten in the diet. Can modify the intestinal by micro -- on in an adverse way. Which then puts this system. At risk of what is actually an autoimmune disease which is type one -- be dismissed those and in India most studied. Which means it was done on animals and in this case it was done on mice rodents. And they fed mice a gluten free diet. And these were mice that were red. To their it where they're called non obese diabetic mice to mice that are bred to grow up -- to develop type one diabetes that's how there have been. Tom faxed within their genes so these monster can all develop type one diabetes but if they fed them. A gluten free diet. They dramatically reduced which mice grew up and got type one diabetes. And then when they reintroduce and other words of gluten free diet. Protected the mice against developing type one diabetes than it did it by the health it's affected the health that the when the researchers. Added Clinton back to the diets of mice it reversed this protective effect they could. Protect mice against getting type one diabetes which the mice were genetically. Race to do. And then when they put gluten foods packed into the diet they could -- verse that protective effect they could create. And they could. Not they could block the development of type one diabetes by what they -- in the diet. And how that food component in the diet. Affected the micro bio on the health of the bacteria in the -- these changes suggest that the presence of gluten is directly responsible. Directly responsible let me say that again directly responsible for diabetes creating effects of the diet. And determines the health -- the gut micro flora. And that -- in what is gluten again it's it's 200 different types of proteins clintons and -- Indians in. The -- related family which is weak rights. Up to forty other foods that have shaped similar early enough to gluten that. You might get a gluten type pre action to these other foods this is the bad news we're learning more and more. About the issues potentially with gluten containing grains. And by the work of the scientist it's directs lab -- all everything in the body works based on shape. Hormones bind interceptors based on shape neuro transmitters. I have chemical reactions based on shape the body. Unfolds it's physiologically conversations. Based on shape. And gluten part of the reason it creates such an issue in the lining of the human gut. It's it's such a large. Floppy shape that it is resistant to pretty little aggregation it's really hard to break down. And everybody gets somewhat of an inflammatory. Wallop from consuming it but the healthier yard -- up back up redundant systems where. It doesn't create an issue with your health but as we -- -- we get ill. We have genetic glitches we can't handle that inflammatory. Which again but it's based on shape well now they've discovered that there's. About forty other foods. Who have proteins that have similar enough. Shape. To gluten. That in a very sensitive person nor an ill person or someone with the right. Grouping civil wheels the right genetic glitches. They can then have an issue what are some of these foods will some of them -- the foods. That people go to. When they try to avoid gluten gluten free family foods so those are rice and tapioca and -- That say gluten free and the label that. They might have enough shape. Similar enough to a gluten -- it and molecule shape. That in a sensitive person it can create more problems the researched researchers pointed out in the study that this research suggests dietary iron and intervention. May be crucially important in a -- affecting your likelihood of developing type one diabetes as well as other autoimmune diseases. Like multiple sclerosis and it's -- coastal disease and -- the six setter up. This also says you know there was position. That was working with reversing type one diabetes if he got a hold of the parents and the kids within six months of being diagnosed. And put them on high dose niacin a mind about averaging about 12100 milligrams a day. And I spoke with him on the phone and he told me that about. Twenty to 30% of kids were able to reverse type one diabetes by going on nine cinema died. Within six months of the diagnosis. -- this would say that if your child is. Diagnosed with type one diabetes right then and -- you should be taking them off gluten foods. And -- contacting your physician and calling ups directs laboratories and testing these other forty potentially. Conflicting foods and in the -- even included. Spinach and coffee and acting goat's milk consumed very -- to foods that you might go to when you're trying to. Quote eat better so. The take -- of this is a lot of illnesses that we thought. You getting a diagnosis and this is what you have for life. Might not be the case there might be some interventions that may be effective not -- everybody but it certainly worth a try when it happens. But the larger. Take home message. Is that should we be feeding our kids gluten foods at all. I heard election recently the eye doctor Davis who wrote we -- and he said just in the way we now look at cigarette smoking. You know we'd look at it fifty years ago we think is crazy that doctors went on television and told people. You can smoke in your pregnant to relax -- can smoke when you're anxious it's a healthy thing to do. Now everything you know cigarettes. Aren't and you geologic factor for lung cancer as well as many other issues like even. Pancreas kidney cancer etc. So. The comment was. -- -- Looked back in another 1015 years to say remember the time we got eating a whole grains. Was a healthy thing to do so do we wait until our child gets diagnosed with type and I'd be just to get them off bulletin board do we trying -- And a gluten free diet or do we at least trying eat. Sensibly a much more diverse diet if you look at a menu in America today there's really 45 foods. She's -- We potatoes and everything is a variation on the theme but at home me -- a lot more control and you can have a lot more diversity so if you don't wanna go gluten free. He can at least make. The bread. And crackers and gluten containing -- speed much more minimal. In your family diets you're not consuming. Gluten containing foods 2345. Times today and certainly if your child just gets diagnosed with type one diabetes -- Come into the clinic we can talk to about all these things we can give a sensible. Coalition based in science attempt. To see if the dietary needs to surgical intervention. Might switch. What looked like. A permanent diagnosis. So many diagnoses that we become. Patients come in and -- have got this I've got data becomes part of their personality. We can put into their rearview mirror so today's been updates and cut health I hope you enjoyed it.
