William Davis, MD, cardiologist and author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Wheat Belly books, as well as Undoctored and, most recently, Super Gut, 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

    Nootropics vs Neurotrophics: Know the difference for preservation of brain health

    Nootropics vs Neurotrophics: Know the difference for preservation of brain health

    You have likely heard the headlines: cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia are on the rise. Part of the increase is due to an aging population. But there are reasons that are adding to the increase beyond this. The epidemics of insulin resistance (recall that dementia is often labeled “type 3 diabetes,” meaning that the brain becomes insulin resistant), SIBO endotoxemia, the ubiquity of heavy metal toxicity, and deficiencies of important nutrients such as omega-3 fa...

    The Microbiome-Cancer Connection

    The Microbiome-Cancer Connection

    Cancer is, of course, something we all fear, a collection of diseases that strike us down unexpectedly and often put us at the mercy of a deeply flawed and exploitative medical system. So it can help to identify the factors that leads us down this path and take action to minimize such risks. We don’t smoke cigarettes, we try to consume organic foods whenever possible to minimize the carcinogenic effects of herbicides and pesticides, we avoid getting sunburned—advice you are all likely familia...

    Potpourri: Hyaluronic acid, allulose, L. reuteri and reproductive health

    Potpourri: Hyaluronic acid, allulose, L. reuteri and reproductive health

    There are a great many emerging ideas to discuss, but sometimes these topics are just not big enough to fill out an entire podcast episode. So I decided to start something I call “Potpourri,” a collection of unconnected but interesting topics that may be helpful in guiding you in your health journey. I’d like to say “Ask your doctor about these issues,” but you and I know that they will, more than likely, know absolutely nothing about these questions because 1) it’s not a pharmaceutical or pr...

    My recent antibiotic experience

    My recent antibiotic experience

    I recently had an experience in which I had to take an antibiotic. Those of you who have been following my Defiant Health podcast discussions, or have been reading my thousands of blog posts on DrDavisInfiniteHealth.com, or my books, especially my latest Super Gut book, know that I advocate for absolutely minimizing our reliance on antibiotics, as they are extremely destructive to the microbiome. Antibiotics disrupt microbial composition of the gastrointestinal tract, the airway, the sinuses,...

    How to Stop "Treating" Health Conditions

    How to Stop "Treating" Health Conditions

    It’s a concept that many people struggle to embrace or understand. But once you ‘get” it, a lot of issues in health will become clearer and you can save yourself a considerable amount of time, effort, and money. The idea is to get away from the idea of “treating” health conditions. This is the approach used in pharmaceuticals and employed by most doctors. If, for instance, blood glucose is high, drugs like insulin, metformin, or a GLP-1 agonist like Wegovy or Ozempic is introduced to force bl...

The yogurt

I’ve been making the many yogurt recipes and if that’s all I learned from Dr Davis, that would be enough! There are so many easily understandable suggestions to follow and I’ve been constantly learning more. I feel at 40+ years old better than I have in my whole life. My gut health is incredible.

Cured my Fibromyalgia

I am a fan of this podcast, Dr. Davis is one of the most credible voices out there. And his insights probably saved me years of misery!

When I switched to a LCHF diet, I also started with Dr. Davis’ SIBO yogurt.

SIBO yogurt was instrumental in curing my fibromyalgia. I feel amazing after suffering so long.
