Five Events That Transformed My Views on Health
Show Notes

Over the past 30 years, I have made a number of blunders in health. But I always made it a point to learn from my mistakes. Doing so taught me a number of important lessons in health and nutrition, lessons that revealed just how little conventional ideas on health yielded and how doing things very differently yields enormous health advantages. In this episode of Defiant Health, I therefore recount:

  • How cutting dietary fat and eating plenty of "healthy whole grains" leads to metabolic disasters
  • How the death of my mother from sudden cardiac death showed me how inadequate heart procedures are for dealing with coronary heart disease
  • How rejecting cholesterol and resorting to more advanced lipoprotein testing illustrated how not cutting fat and banishing all grains and sugars yielded huge advantages and led to methods to reduce coronary calcium scores
  • Despite the enormous advantages of the Wheat Belly grain-free lifestyle, there were people who had residual health issues such as stalled weight loss, food intolerances, or autoimmune conditions that finally responded to more vigorous efforts to rebuild a healthy microbiome
  • How identifying, then replacing, microbes lost from the modern human microbiome yields extraordinary benefits such as deeper sleep, restoration of youthful muscle, smoother skin with fewer wrinkles, and preservation of bone density. 

And why and how following these strategies, drawn from lessons learned by making huge blunders in health, yields a level of health that is superior to the "health" the doctor provides.
