The Gut Health MD: Dr. Will Bulsiewicz On Optimizing Your Microbiome (In A Pandemic)

Read more
Your brain's best friend is your gut. You can't separate the two. If you have an unhealthy gut, it's going to affect your brain.
Will Bulsiewicz, MD

We are living in a moment of compounding collective stress---personal, pandemic, economic, civic, and political. This trauma and tumult comes with side effects both physical and psychological. 

How do we take care of our bodies during this incredibly stressful moment? Furthermore, how do we buttress our immune system to combat the virus?

The answer, we are increasingly coming to understand, begins with the microbiome. In fact, you might be surprised to learn, the gut is home to 70% of our immune system.

To glean a better understanding of what that means, I convened with Dr. Will Bulsiewicz, a lauded gastroenterologist & gut health guru whose life’s work is devoted to better comprehending the microbiome and the crucial role it plays in all facets of health, from brain function and hormone balance to weight management and everything in between.

Affectionately known as 'Dr. B', Will is a graduate of Georgetown School of Medicine and a former chief medical resident at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and chief gastroenterology fellow at the University of North Carolina Hospitals. In addition, he received his Master of Science in Clinical Investigation (MSCI) from Northwestern University and a certificate in nutrition from Cornell University. He's authored more than twenty articles in the top American gastroenterology journals and his New York Times bestselling book, Fiber Fueled: The Plant Based Gut Health Program For Losing Weight, Restoring Your Health, and Optimizing Your Microbiome, is a must-read primer on why gut health is so crucial--and everything you need to know to optimize it.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, I’ve lamented the mainstream media's lack of attention to caring for our immune system. So today we dive in.

This is a conversation about all things microbiome and gut health. The mechanisms behind it and latest research findings.

We discuss our epidemic of dysbiosis (lack of gut biome balance) and its relation to a litany of chronic diseases that unnecessarily plague too many. 

We explore the gut-brain connection. The paramount need to increase the biodiversity in our bodies and our environments. And (sorry carnivores) why fiber is king.

In addition, in this time of excessive sterilization and sequestration, Dr. B provides practical takeaways on how we can improve our gut flora and optimize our immune system, without putting ourselves and others at risk.

And finally, we talk fecal transplants. Because, let's face it, I can’t have a gastroenterologist on the show and not ask about that.

It was an honor to to converse with Dr. B--a fresh, new mind making big waves on the plant-based, microbiome scene. Passionate, empathetic and whip-smart, I enjoyed every minute. And I promise you will walk away from this episode armed to take your health to the next level.

Note: I first came across Dr. B's work by way of his many appearances on my friend Simon Hill's wonderful Plant Proof Podcast (which you should all check out). The pandemic prevented an in-person exchange, so this conversation was recorded remotely a few months ago. Apologies in advance for any audio issues. We did the best we could.

Final Note: Will just released The Plant-Fed Gut, a comprehensive 7-week online course about microbiome health and reversing dysbiosis that goes beyond what he was able to offer in his book. To learn more and sign up, visit theplantfedgut.com/course/ (I have no affiliate or financial entanglement here--just sharing good information).

Ep 18: Dr. Will Bulsiewicz - Build the Gut of a Hero

Read more

In 2018, after an interview about building a healthy gut on a plant-based diet went viral, Dr. Will Bulsiewicz knew he needed to do something. He wanted to continue to spread this message to a wider audience. The result almost two years later? His brand new book Fiber Fueled: The Plant-Based Gut Health Program for Losing Weight, Restoring Your Health, and Optimizing Your Microbiome.

Fiber Fueled is the playbook to optimize and restore your gut health on a plant-based diet, and this entire episode is dedicated to the one nutrient that has the most positive impact on your gut health - FIBER.

Dr. B dishes on:

  • His F-GOALS: Those super plant-foods to optimize gut health

  • Straight talk on paleo, keto, lectins, and other misinformation floating around

  • Honest dialogue on probiotics and prebiotics

  • And, yes, a topic like fiber wouldn't be complete without a discussion on poop!

It's empowering to know that you're not born to have disease. You're born for health and it all starts with the relationship between your microbes and fiber - fiber from plants.

Fiber really is sexy!

The Microbiome, Gut Health, and the Importance of Plants with Dr. Will Bulsiewicz

Read more

Ep 19: Microbiome. Gut Health. These are hot topics these days and for good reason. The health of our gut dictates the well-being of our entire bodies. But this is fairly new information. The term microbiome wasn't even coined until 2006. Up until that point scientists didn't give the bacteria in out GI tracts much more thought. Dr. Will Bulsiewicz, AKA Dr. B, is a board certified gastroenterologist in Charleston, SC spreading the word about just how important our gut health truly is and the role plants play in keeping it balanced. He's setting himself apart by focusing his practice on nutrition, gut microbiome, and lifestyle medicine, advocating lifestyle changes in order to create lasting effects on our health. His information is all based on the latest in gut health science which shows that our bodies thrive on the consumption of plants! We talk about his upbringing, how he got to where he is today, and when he started connecting the dots. We get into the microbiome, the science behind it, and why eating a diversity of plants is so beneficial in creating health. We also talk about the current medical system, dysbiosis, the paleo diet, Blue Zones, and even the Amazon rainforest!
