William Davis, MD, cardiologist and author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Wheat Belly books, as well as Undoctored, brings the unvarnished truth about many health conditions. So much information in health is crafted by industry, bent to the benefit of healthcare systems, delivered by willfully ignorant physicians. Yet a critical mass of truly useful, safe, effective health information has been reached--but someone has to deliver it to you. That is Dr. Davis' intention. Among the topics the Defiant Health Podcast covers are:--Microbiome health--The key to so many health conditions, as well as preservation of youth and vigor, can be found in the microbiome.--Heart health--You will find no mention of cholesterol or statin drugs here, only hard-hitting, science-based insights.--Thyroid health--Why do endocrinologists and other doctors get thyroid health so wrong? Let's get it right.--Weight loss--We don't count calories, don't push the plate away, or echo other ineffective knuckle headed solutions that have created the most overweight population of humans in history.--How to get rid of type 2 diabetes--it's painfully easy. --Get on the road to reversing autoimmune diseases--Take steps today to prevent neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's dementia, Parkinsonism, and multiple sclerosis--And many others.For more information on Dr. Davis' insights and programs, seeWheat Belly books--esp. the Wheat Belly Revised & Expanded Edition, 2019Wheat Belly 30-Minute CookbookWheat Belly 10-Day Grain DetoxUndoctored: Why Health Care Has Failed You and How You Can Become Smarter Than Your DoctorWheat Belly Blog: www.wheatbellyblog.comTalk to me through my membership website, the Undoctored Inner Circle:InnerCircle.Undoctored.com

    Statins, Anger, Hate, and Aggression

    Statins, Anger, Hate, and Aggression

    Widely-prescribed statin cholesterol drugs have been associated with muscle weakness and pain, as well as markedly increased potential for type 2 diabetes, while providing minimal reductions in cardiovascular risk. But there is also potential for a rarely discussed collection of side-effects not reported in the billions of dollars of clinical trials sponsored by the drug industry: anger, hate, and aggressive behavior.

    Ancient Love

    Ancient Love

    Because most of us as modern people have lost the intestinal microbe, Lactobacillus reuteri, that is responsible for increasing release of the hormone, oxytocin, from the brain, are the phenomena of love, affection, and concern for other people less intense than they used to be in prior times? Was love and affection stronger, for instance, in the 19th century, the Middle Ages, or the Greek Empire? 

    I share a unique personal experience that indelibly imprinted this question on my brain. In the meantime, you can enjoy the restoration of increased love, empathy, and social connection by restoring this microbe to your intestinal microbiome.

    Identify the Emotional Roadblocks Holding You Back: An Interview With JJ Flizanes

    In this episode of Defiant Health, we consider something that we do not often consider: identifying the emotional stumbling blocks to success.

    Whether you are faltering in gaining control over weight loss, chronic pain, or other health or life struggle, JJ Flizanes discusses how the cause for your failure can be emotional, some factor in your past life that is keeping you from enjoying the success you desire. After a long career helping people overcome physical disabilities, JJ now devotes her efforts to helping people overcome their emotional roadblocks.

    JJ is a prolific podcaster and book author. Her podcasts include Fit 2 Love Podcast Show; Spirit, Purpose & Energy with JJ Flizanes; Women, Men, & Relationships with JJ Flizanes and others. She’s author of 3 books including Fit 2 Love: How to get physically, emotionally, and spiritually fit to attract the love of your life. Her latest book is The Invisible Fitness Formula: 5 Secrets to Release Weight and End Body Shame.

    Interview with Dr. David Perlmutter and about his new book "Drop Acid"

    Interview with Dr. David Perlmutter and about his new book "Drop Acid"

    Neurologist Dr. David Perlmutter, known to most Defiant Health listeners as The NY Times bestseller author of Grain Brain, as well as Brain Maker and Brain Wash, makes some surprising and enlightening observations about a blood marker called uric acid.

    Up until recently, uric acid was thought to be the factor that caused gout and kidney stones. But Dr. Perlmutter reports on emerging science that shows that tracking uric acid is almost as crucial to health as tracking blood sugar and that uric acid underlies many common chronic diseases. Understand what your uric acid level means, then take natural action to bring it under control to gain advantages in health and risk for many health conditions.

    Dr. Perlmutter's newest book is Drop Acid: The Surprising New Science of Uric Acid--The Key to Losing Weight, Controlling Blood Sugar, and Achieving Extraordinary Health to be released Feb 15, 2022 and available through all major bookstores including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Indie Books.

Holistic Cardiologist

Highly recommended especially for people suffering with heart ailments and general health issues.

Golfiq ,

I’m off my biologics !!!

Since I read Undoctored and Wheat Belly and now this podcast, I’ve lost 32lbs in 3 months and no longer have psoriatic arthritis. No more injecting a dangerous immune suppressing drug Humira which I’ve done for 12 years. My rheumatologist is stunned but has not asked me what I’ve done. He probably thinks I’m one of the lucky ones.

I recommend all dr Davis’s books and this podcast. Real wealth is HEALTH!
