I’m so happy I found Dr. Myers. I have been on my search for curing my gut issues/acne for over a year now and it all began from reading and listening to Dr. Myers. Thank you for opening my eyes to issues with my digestion. I realize now I have Cándida overgrowth. I tried to make an appointment with her clinic since I am in Houston but it was almost impossible. A year later BBC I found a dietician/nutritionist in Houston that is helping me. I really related to episode 32. Although I haven’t been diagnosed with Hashimodos I did find relief by quitting gluten and dairy. But also I had the same symptoms where I had really bad fatigue and I think it was all caused by the permeability. I hope I can go deeper in my search and figure out all the details once I cure the overgrowth. But Im finally hopefuly I’m moving in the right direction by targeting Cándida. Thank you again!

Great podcast!

Click link below to listen to the podcast

Prevention starts in the home

See the produce shopping guide from Environmental Working Group for a list of foods that you should purchase organic: www.ewg.org/foodnews

Phase 1 detox needs

  • B vitamins (B12, B6, folinic acid pre-methlyated)
  • Bioflavonoids with vitamin C
  • Glutathione (or precursors: n-acetyl-cysteine, milk thistle, alpha-lipoic acid, glycine, magnesium)

Phase 2 detox needs

  • Essential amino acids (vegetarian diet, low stomach acid, or presence of gut infections could cause deficiencies)

Signs that you could benefit from detox:

  • autoimmune disease
  • cancer
  • chronic fatigue syndrome
  • fibromyalgia
  • fatigue
  • migraines
  • headaches
  • PMS
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • mood swings
  • joint pain/muscle pain
  • brain fog

*Juice cleanses often force the body into detoxification very quickly.

If you’re detox pathways aren’t prepared, then you could feel achy, weak, and crummy.

How to detox

1. Support your liver:

OR

2. Stay hydrated

Try to drink 6-8 glasses of filtered water per day to eliminate unnecessary toxins and support your immune system. For questions about Aquasana water filters, you can contact Mara Flynn at mara.flynn@aquasana.com.

3. Have one bowel movement a day

If you aren’t having one bowel movement per day, I would highly recommend taking:

  • Magnesium citrate
  • Vitamin C
  • Fiber

See my Bowel Care package with all of these supplements in one place.

4. Sweat out toxins

Infrared saunas help your body release a number of toxins, including heavy metals, like mercury and lead, and environmental chemicals. I have an infrared sauna in my home from Sunlighten Saunas that I use frequently. See my article for recommendations on how to detox with a sauna. You can also contact Sarah Wickens at Sunlighten at 877-292-0020 ext 153 or email her at swickens@sunlighten.com.

Intro

  • What on earth is Candida?
  • Candida is a fungus, which is a form of yeast, a very small amount of which lives in your mouth and intestines.
  • Its job is to aid with digestion and nutrient absorption, but when it is overproduced it breaks down the wall of the intestine and penetrates the bloodstream, releasing toxic byproducts into your body and causing leaky gut.
  • This can lead to many different health problems ranging from digestive issues to depression.

Symptoms

  • What are some of the most common symptoms?
  • How can there be so many symptoms for candida?

Food and candida

  • Do certain foods cause candida to bloom? Why?

1) Doctor, Grain Brain is now the number one book in America in the area of brain health. Why the interest?

2) We are all told that the best thing we can do is cut back on fat, and yet your new book tells us just the opposite. Why do you say we should actually be eating more fat?

3) Doctors are telling everyone to lower their cholesterols, and your new book states that cholesterol is good for the brain. That seems a bit confusing.

4) People have been eating grains for thousands of years and now suddenly we are hearing that grains are a problem. How can that be?

5) In your new book you talk a lot about how sugars and carbs are actually “toxic” for the brain, can you explain?

6) How did you come up with these theories? Is there much science that supports what you’re saying?

7) How can a person know if they are at risk for a brain problem?

The Basics

What is Gluten?

Why is there so much talk about Gluten today?

Tell us a little about how the spectrum of intensity of gluten. What differences have you seen with your patients?

What is leaky gut?

Symptoms of Celiac and Gluten Intolerance

What are some of the major symptoms you have seen?

What are the symptoms where it is essential to remove gluten?

Testing for Celiac and Gluten Intolerance

How do we know where we fall on the spectrum of intensity?

If we remove gluten for 3 weeks, and have problems when we reintroduce it, could this also because we have removed it for three weeks or more (our gut ecology changes), not because we have a problem with it?

In podcast #2 about the Myer’s way, we talked about Leaky Gut and testing. You said that food sensitivity testing is accurate but When you test for food sensitivities and have leaky gut, foods that you eat often might show up, you have the example of spinach, when you create a person elimination diet, do you remove all the foods that have triggered a response?

Treatment of Celiac and Gluten Intolerance

So if we discover we have an issue, what do we do next? How do we deal with this?

Gluten and Cross-Reactivity

Let’s go deeper into the gluten question. Let’s say I have removed gluten, but I’m still experiencing symptoms, maybe after have dairy or coffee. What’s going on?

What is cross-reactivity and how does it work?

Most common cross-reactive foods?

Now if you do have severe symptoms, have you had patients who needed to remove all those foods.

Is there any rule of thumb for how long someone needs to remove these foods?

So I’ve removed all these foods, how do I know if I am “healed” from leaky gut?

Hidden Sources of Gluten

In your guide, you talk about the hidden sources of gluten. This is something that you really emphasize. Some of the examples you cite are shampoos, medications, playdough, even stamps.

Can these items really cause a reaction?

How to stay gluten free

So you have decided to go gluten-free and are overwhelmed by the enormity of the task.  Do you have any tips for beginners?

Please post below in the comments:

1. How did you discover that you were gluten intolerant or have celiacs?

2. Tell me the difference you have seen from going gluten-free?
