Welcome to -- daily practice till dawn. Boston's source for integrated health news and total wellness posted by doctor Lindsay -- and internationally acclaimed expert in the health sciences medical nutrition. And a best selling all -- Good mid morning. Honest and and happy holidays. Merry Christmas. I love this time of year even though I know it's really. Commercialized. Version. A wonderful. Spiritual at this honor I just love this time a year and I wish you all. Very. Merry Christmas I hope you are with loved ones and family. Or if you don't have family I hope you're with your family of choice which can often be just as good if not better as a community. Also my birthdays Christmas season. I just love having birthdays I don't mind in any way getting older. Songs I don't feel and act older that's the big deal so we have a great show this is part two of our show last week. With gut health updates and got health updates part two. And what we're gonna first opened up with this why would our guts get out of here if we're now looking at -- being the epicenter of our health. -- -- -- get how to balance how -- things go astray. And one of the biggest. Culprits. In why so many. People are having gut issues. Is are widespread use of antibiotics. Either as prescription. Or in directly by consuming. Chickens and animals that are fed a lot of antibiotics prophylactically. Because there and scenarios are very close and and and they're not allowed to roam around. And -- more prone to infections so did just protect against the infections. -- just given antibiotics on a routine basis even. Farm raised fish are given antibiotics so we get antibiotics -- prescriptions. We also get a lot of by antibiotics in this our food. And this is creating. To. Huge. Issues. One is antibiotic resistance which is an international reality I mean it's an international realities summit so. At the infectious disease society to America's been making noise for more than a decade. With their campaign called. Bad bugs. No drugs. And they're calling upon. Match better instruction a medical doctors and med school to learn how to not overprescribed. And of course for the patients not to demand so it's two fold at the docks and the patients. So antibiotic resistance is a big. Real issue when you really need antibiotics if you didn't. Taking them to mention your life. You can have developed a resistance which then makes that. Intentionally. Lifesaving antibiotics not work for you that the second hand. Is -- about onyx wipe out -- good gut flora and could gut flora is he's essential diverse. Healthy gut -- several pounds of it in your gut is essential for health and I often have. Heard the story with patients that they went on. A rounded antibiotics. Only to Dan have there helped start to spiral out of control on the other side now if you if you. On examples there is it gastroenterology is to wrote a book called got lists and the reason she got so interested in. Out of the box interventions. Or got health. Which end up being about food and nutrition -- set her up is because her own child had been given several rounds of antibiotics in -- then. There health spun out of control and she was trying to get a child's health. Back on track and also she was scoping so many people with there. Colonoscopy. Since saw that so many people without knowing it had inflamed. Gastrointestinal -- whether it was in. Colon and so they could have some kind of collided sometimes. It can be something called until training them to -- collided search so that you're not even aware that your having it that you just having more bomb movements and their looser bound movements. Or it could be in the small intestine. And she was really shocked at how many people as they. We're getting up NH and we're talking middle age were not just talking senior citizens were walking around with inflammation. In the gut. And she started to address this because this then would've -- the overall health and she's out that one of the main causes of that. Is the over use. Of antibiotics. Either as prescription. Or coming into our food and the big problem is the overuse of antibiotics and hospitals and communities. Now only can they lead to side effects like rashes and -- certain. Colin damage but they do lead to the side effects of the development of multi drug resistant organisms. And then they also lead to -- development of bad. -- which know no bounds bad bugs which know no bounds and then once if you start harboring bad bugs they're very contagious. And you can hug somebody could be living with somebody could be wiping your child's mouth -- your hand that you just wiped on your hand. Bad bugs are very contagious and easily. On passed on from one family member. To another so it's a really big deal and we see things like this happen all the time and it's not tracked for example. I had a patient who went to their OPG Miami got her yearly pap smear. She was told she had something called back Syria. Bacterial -- notes that sounds really awful doesn't it may recommend its financial. Bacterial that you know -- basically means that the gut flora in your vagina is out of balance just like we're talking about. Called the gut flora and your colon can get out of balance and flash -- broad spectrum antibiotic wipes out. Almost all Europe bacteria assume no longer have healthy to -- communities of flora inside your gut and after that she started getting direct to do lightest. Which many people as they age have little out hutchings of their Colin. Called direct to -- It -- to people get infections them unless. Your Florida balance gets disturbed that she got re current parity lightest and they threw more in about products that her then she started developing other. On issues and other infections because her overall health was at day. But what you can do is you can. It get a doctor to prescribe capsules of Bora acid which helped -- sit inside of the China. And that helps bring the bad to good. -- Bacteria in balance again just and doesn't create any of the negative problems of financial. And in double blind placebo controlled trials comparing the use. Of port assets depository is just flat -- There's less recurrence of bacterial -- innocence and more rapid. Elimination. Of basically that PH and floral and balance of the vagina. And gasoline know as women age in their fifties and sixties and seventies. A lot of the vagina health comes from the god help there is the seating that's what it's called so we want to keep our good to bad bacteria. In line. -- number one if you have an issue with your health trying to to just knee jerk go for. An antibiotic tries something else on the you don't want unnecessary exposure you wanna -- natural things first. And the side effect that the damage on the colon is really really true otherwise we wouldn't have the infectious disease society of America for almost a decade now. Trying to really take a look at better education of our doctors and school to have better stewardship. Of antibiotic. Prescription. And also as a patient yourself you've got control he could not ask your doctor to give you antibiotics. And you can try alternative natural treatments because once again. The short term side effects of antibiotics can include. -- Diffuse rashes. Inflammation of the colon called colitis and some people it just doesn't go away. Kidney failure. Seizures. And even an increased risk of threat now. And it can also make you resistant to antibiotics down the road when you need them. Long term antibiotic use couldn't frequently lead to invasive candy diocese in fungal infections -- Destroyed the protective. Coating of the lining like paint coating on the lining of the gut -- secret -- I GA. Which is the year to really protect your cup while it's very easily destroyed by long term use of antibiotics. So. That's -- thing to consider and that's why it's always good to have lots of natural tools. In your home tool back or work with naturally oriented practitioners. First as she could always take. The antibiotics later -- the first natural interventions don't work. Or you can save them -- life threatening situations. Going on more about. Diet you know I mean. What is the -- pack of diet. On the -- and I always say. If you look back over the last forty to fifty years there's so many trends in diet that it. We become very tarnished what is in new bit of information comes out there was a low fat diet and high fat diet now the vegan diet verses. The more meat oriented diet now the paint Leo diet. Which one do we eat the vegan diet which is best. After working and nutrition for almost. Forty some years at the moment. In seeing so many diets come and go and seeing patients. For really robust in their nineties. -- people who are food Nazis in their twenties and thirties and they just can't get their health really fabulous. What do I have to say about the best diet and health of the cut. I would have to say that the best diet. -- them. -- dumped them the best diet. Is the less. Diet. Whenever you eat as long as you don't over eat I think over eating is probably the worst thing you can do even if it's good food. And that your digesting it. That your gut. -- enough stomach acid your stomach so that you can reduce your minerals to the proper -- state you can kill any pathogens that are on there like it's -- some Girardi yours. If you really could stomach acid you kill a lot of those bugs that come in on the salad bar that your over a whole foods trying to eat well. But -- some bugs on there. You have a line of defense. Only if you making enough stomach acid -- stomach acid this decree did you have the right. Acid level which is around two in your stomach this notifies your golf letting your pancreas to sit -- Other digested enzymes and you start getting everything working well also the best diet is the last diet. That's well digested so we're gonna talk to the little bit. One of the new studies and geriatric surgery which is there really less diet people they'll get their stomachs stapled to make them eat less. How does that affect us clear -- to stay tuned in Merry Christmas again in Austin.

Welcome back mid morning Austin in our wonderful Merry Christmas season we are talking about health. Got updates number two we're going into description. Of the study that just came out this November from Stanford University. Where it and that was published in no PC week. And it was. What is the effective people who are really obese and they get their stomachs stapled since then they'd then eat what I called the last diet very small amount of food. And it was this the researchers who reviewed data from 51 patients before they had gastric bypass surgery in afterwards and most of the subjects were women about fifty years old and on the average within a year. They lost about 71% of their body weight the biggest deal with that just -- very very small amounts of food that's all you can do after gastric. Bypass surgery. And they had a -- decline in their fasting insulin. And they had. -- significant reduction in their C reactive protein to basically when you carry a lot of extra weight your body is inflamed Boettcher C reactive protein. That is -- bio markers that shows if you inflammation in your body although it's not a very discreet body not marker. But they had a very high levels of serum protein because a lot of fat. Make your body inflamed and they also carry around spiking of insulin to the insulin spiking was reduced in improved. C reactive protein the inflammation. Was reduced and improved. They also this is consistent with research that's been shown in the past but for the very first time. The researchers at Stanford. Measured. Genetic bio markers. On the caps of our DNA called telomeres. And they measured the length of each patient's telomeres. Kept at the telomeres which have a lot to do with our longevity. And our ability to stay robust vertical. Out of -- Not poppies that an adult -- might wanna go into a happy that I don't want it got up though when I was and New Mexico we would have hopi Indians that would often take a sign. I'm heat detox in in these. TP he's spent. We're talking about hospitals now we wanna stay at a hospitals we might wanna go on to keep these. And on they've looked at telomeres blanks before and after surgical weight loss. And what they found is. That after gastric bypass which in essence is after people ate a lot less. This is bring us back to I think the best diet which is the last diet. A number of the patients telomeres became longer. As people Ager have chronic illness they're telomeres shorten. And the people that live longer and have more robust health. Have longer telomeres this is where size does. Matter -- matters in year telomeres. So they discovered that when you eat less. Your telomeres lengthened there's an inverse relationship you eat less live longer telomeres to eat less you have a better life. One of the very few things that's ever been linked to really positively in reproduced in science. Is that under eating systematic under raining its link to living longer. I know out of University of California Irvine to still last year we saw rodeo as an herb get the light shone on it. Because it came up with the same talent their lengthening equivalent. -- eating less so now we're seeing some neat -- cynical purposes locals that we can use to do that but the bottom line is eating. Less. Is healthier on your got. And healthier on your telomeres you know I remember talking a few months ago about. Meeting have died colleges in the UK in England and these guys have heard about these gastric bypass surgery. Sequel events were some people have gastric bypass and they had diabetes now they no longer habit. And so they thought will work in -- simulate the effect of the gastric bypass surgery -- took. Fourteen patients that it had diabetes for at least fifteen years. Type two diabetes adult onset that we used to think was a terminal diagnosis once you have that you always have it. And they put them on 500 calories per day. And they tracked with MRIs the fat infiltration of the pancreas in the liver because you have a lot of fatty infiltration which is one of the reasons. That you don't get the insulin production and you get the disease -- biology used what we call one of the underlying mechanisms of type two diabetes and some of the patients. Within a week they were able to track -- moving out bad fat moving out of the liver and the pancreas within a week fasting glucose is I'm just 500 calories today went to normal and within two months. Eleven of the fourteen patients who had. Hat daddy beat this type two diabetes. For at least fifteen years were now free of the disease in essence mimicking. What we just saw here eating less is better on your -- Better on your -- yours better on your insulin sensitivity. It just makes a lot of sense so I don't know after many many years of seeing. All kinds of patients it seems to me that under systematic under eating. It's almost more important than what you're eating although both having Cogent. Conscious eating eating a lot more plant foods to -- colorful food seats and problem not by you know you know the the score. Along with systematic under eating and exercise and spiritual attitudes and platitudes and all of these scenes player rolled together. But I do know that is people deprived themselves and go on certain diets like -- -- and other things they become so. Hungry that they can often start making pay Leo breads or this or that are alternatives and over eat on them because they've. Lost a lack of balance in their life. This is bring me back to something that's really cool that's happened in my own life recently. I had a patient to -- men that said. That they hadn't done anything different lately it was an -- -- church right -- coherent town. Except add a tablespoon of their own homemade come blue chip which is basically. Veggies that are mixed. -- worked with salt in the mix together with a yogurt starter like yogurt would be made. And so that you have a -- she mixed it has a lot of healthy bacteria that reconstitute the health of your gut. So we all got together as I -- couldn't believe how any year is. Blood fats and improved his vitamin. Is good cholesterol -- good high which is good is bad cholesterol went low which is good is blood sugar was looking much better at all he had done differently. Was -- tablespoon. Of this homemade. Vegetable. It's like a vegetable Kiefer really. It's yogurt without the dairy. It's made out of vegetables so I decided to do sleuthing in the pub med which is the government based peer review literature databank. And it was shocking what I found and this is all while I'm munching on my own. Kim she now at home because. I've been consuming that which we made together and got together and what we discovered. Was that it's really an essence sauerkraut but I don't like the case to sauerkraut so weak data didn't Collard greens -- it's. Parcel he. Onions cabbage. And we made it and parsley and celery juice and it was just this hodgepodge of vegetables. Mixed with the eurocard starter and a little teeny bit of maple syrup to give the -- something to live on. So I started looking into the literature to see what really is out there and science. About the effect of taking -- and vegetable -- by addicts and I was literally weeks to decide. There is for example an article that came out this march in 2000 at thirteen -- world journal microbiology. In biotechnology. -- -- -- -- Looking at what -- the good diverse bugs inside. Homemade vegetable Kiefer sauerkraut. And it turns out that when you lead vegetables that have been fermented. They tend to have much larger diverse. Healthy population a good but. But I got and even the Joker does Lisa think yelling at four or five but in the literature they've got like 2030 or forty they've got some -- A collective acts Phyllis planetarium. Which is really really helped pull. Because -- In some studies it's been shown that lack of backs Phyllis -- Tehran. In people who can't even get rid of that stomach bug called. He's circle back to pylori. It gets rid of it in them it is such a healthy healthy. Probe by attic for the cut. So there's all these black go back still lie. -- family. And when you eat. Fermented veggies or miso you can go to whole foods are natural grocer. For the the new Trader Joe's that are opening up in town -- sprouts with level all of our. Natural. I'm grocery stores and you buy niece so and I love. White river. Where they have that are fun to be me so you have multiple multiple strains of diverse colonies on the whole foods. It really helped keep your gotten year. You also have inside all of these. A wide variety. Of the lack of facts of life family that tend to act like natural antibiotics. So you get ill less often and there's a number of studies that show that people who consumed these are meant to that cheese. Get ill less often. And need to get antibiotic prescriptions. Less often. Because they're making their own natural healthy antibiotics in their -- most of the time. On they used to think that they were just -- few actors in the air but now they see that there's lots of lack of facts -- lie in. These fermented veggies and one of them which I thought was really interesting. Is called collective backs -- Travis may now have numbers there's lot different gut bugs and their names. But there was a study done. Where. It was a double blind crossover trial. Where they used collective backs Phyllis crevice on people who had irritable bowel syndrome -- people who were given placebo. And they were able to show that after just a month of administering capsules containing this lack of -- so -- That they had decrease symptoms severe -- which we knows a really difficult issue to get away from so most of us think we should be consuming. -- Kiefer made from cow's -- from go to make whatever to give us better got X but a lot of this really can't handle. Proteins from -- pitcher Katie seen -- many people have that you're able pollen sensitive. Don't handle the proteins. From -- very well. So considerate the ones. Made from plants. For example kimchi although I must say. That the Kim -- we made is so delicious. It tastes better than what's made. And sold commercially in stores. I. Visited yesterday with some of the people that were part of our Kim -- party. And he is an engineer that works at Samsung -- town in Austin. And their people there who -- meeting Kim -- all their lives and this Kim she came out so delicious he brought some -- Samsung. And he shared it and they said and these -- -- people who've been weaned on Kim -- you know. Because I certainly. -- Nice Jewish girl from Chicago I mean more on corn beef not on kimchi in the pad to undo the bad to that that. He said that these people who knew the flavors of Kim she said it was some of the best Kim -- that they've ever had in their lives. So I think we're gonna have to have people contact us at the radio station and hold a big kimchi gathering. And show people how to make this but. What to -- And how much of what do you certainly affects. Your gut health. Understand that it isn't so much cheating perfectly. As under eating systematically most of the time. And digesting what you -- And eating foods that promote. Healthy gut flora and diverse gut -- High fiber is a really good way to go that produces really healthy gut flora. Also you can purchase. None of milk based. Vegetable key first such as -- cheese sour crowd you can even get. Pickles that. Puppies pickles and whole foods -- one of my favorite tasting pickles and they carry lots of healthy lactic acid bacteria inside of them. So there's a variety of ways you could be getting in good lactic acid bacteria. And getting your -- in -- year. There's so much that we could be talking about it this holiday time. And I think this messages. That eat sensibly if you're gonna be going to parties. Don't snack and ships and things that fill you up don't waste your calories on Matt.
