Dr. Steven Gundry has worked in medicine for over 40 years. He’s probably best known for my work as a cardiothoracic surgeon and heart surgeon… but today his focus is on something very different:
Teaching people how to avoid surgery by using my unique vision of human nutrition.
His mission is to improve your health, happiness, and longevity by making simple changes to your diet.
In his new book The Energy Paradox, Dr. Gundry expands upon his previous discussions of gut, microbiome, and mitochondrial health, linking immune malfunction to the mental and physical symptoms of fatigue—including exhaustion, brain fog, depression, anxiety, and low metabolism.
As Dr. Gundry explains, feeling tired, moody, and zapped of energy is not normal, no matter your workload or age. Fatigue is an SOS flare from the body, one that is intended to alert us that something is wrong. In his clinical work, Dr. Gundry has found that his patients who complain of feeling sick and tired all the time almost always have something in common: the inflammation markers of a leaky gut.
Episode Summary: Dr. Gundry offers listeners the information and tools necessary to quiet the autoimmune battle raging within—a battle that depletes precious energy reserves, leaving us drained and prone to mood disorders and weight gain. He talks about how to increase mitochondrial energy production and nourish the microbiome; and shares some energy-boosting foods to consume and energy-depleting foods to avoid. Dr Gundry also talks about his life-changing pivot and the "miracle patient" that changed everything for him.
