It’s no question if gut health should be at the top of your list of health goals. Yet, surprisingly, many people will focus much more on cosmetic and aesthetic “health” and completely bypass what’s going on inside their bodies. The microbiome in the gut is highly influenced by the types of food we put into it. Primarily, sugar and “empty” carbs are the ones in question here. You can imagine that, if sugar is bad for the brain, it’s not so good for the intestines either! We will now explore this with a view interviews!
In this interview, Eric Westman MD talks about how the ketogenic diet affects the health of our digestion and the trillions of microbes inside our guts. Contrary ideas are also brought to the table in an attempt to truly understand what takes place when sugar and empty carbs are removed from our diet.
In this interview, David Perlmutter MD, a board certified neurologist, discusses how the removal of grains and the inclusion of a ketogenic diet could aid in protecting our brains for life. The power of gut microbes is incredible, but fat got the blame for its decline in recent decades, contrary to practices by humans over thousands of years.
Both of these interviews are full of knowledge, as well as links to other books and research articles to expand what you know about the connection between the brain and the gut microbiome and just how helpful ketosis is in maintaining the health of both.
Health and happiness,
