Season 3 Episode 29: Dr. Alan Desmond – Part 2 – 97% of the USA is Deficient in This. Are You? — PLANTSTRONGPodcast.com

On a day-to-day basis, we can choose what kind of microbiome we’re going to build. Rip and Dr. Desmond explain how a healthy microbiome not only affects our physical health, but also our emotional well-being.

This week, we get into the nitty-gritty of gut health with Part Two of our conversation with Gastroenterologist, Dr. Alan Desmond. If you missed part one with Dr. Desmond’s Top 10 Prescriptions for Better Health, we highly recommend a listen!


Let me ask you this — “Where do you get your fiber?” If your first answer is Metamucil or any other fiber supplement, this episode is for you.

So many of us have what is known as a “carcinogenic microbiome.” It’s an unfortunate truth that millions are walking around with a gut filled with cancer-promoting cells. Not only is this leading to so many of the preventable chronic lifestyle diseases, but also debilitating mental and cognitive issues like depression, anxiety, dementia, and alzheimer’s.

BUT, here’s the great news. The studies also tell us that the more fruits and vegetables we consume, the higher our levels of optimism and the lower our levels of depressive symptoms.

How is that possible? Dr. Desmond and Rip explain the why and how.

Top Ten Prescriptions for Better Health | Dr. Alan Desmond | with Rip Esselstyn at PlANTSTRONG.com

For more information, show notes and more, visit: https://www.plantstrongpodcast.com/bl…
Today, I’m also going to be your personal “Physician’s Assistant” right alongside the amazing Dr. Alan Desmond, Gastroenterologist and author of the new book, “The Plant-Based Diet Revolution.” My parents have been raving about him so much and, today, you’ll see why. His knowledge and expertise of gut health and the microbiome is SO vast that we’re actually breaking our conversation into a two-part series because we want you to (pun intended) digest everything he says.
From the get-go, Dr. Desmond lays out some sobering statistics for gut health in the US…1 in 3 adults under the age of 50 have diverticular disease, colorectal cancer will affect more than 1 in 20 adults in their lifetimes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is off the charts…
If all health begins in the gut, then the US needs a major overhaul and that’s what we’re here to do over the next two weeks.
In part one today, we whip out the prescription pad and give you real Doctor’s orders…The Top 10 Prescriptions for Better Health. But, unlike most prescriptions that simply treat the problem, these prescriptions will get to the root and help you solve these problems.
The best part? They don’t involve taking more pills…just beautiful, nutritious, whole plant-based foods, the optimal diet for health and longevity. Ok, my friends. The Doctor is in and it’s your turn to spend some quality time with Dr. Alan Desmond.

Remarkable Real-Life Cases Of Water Fasting Reversing Serious Health Traumas | Alan Goldhamer, D.C. | The Real Truth About Health

Articulate, inspiring and energetic, Dr. Goldhamer is one of the most pioneering and dedicated visionaries in health today. An outspoken professional who doesn’t shy away from a spirited debate, he is deeply committed to helping people stuck in self-destructive cycles reclaim their ability to change their lives.
Dr. Goldhamer has supervised the fasts of thousands of patients. Under his guidance, the Center has become one of the premier training facilities for doctors wishing to gain certification in the supervision of therapeutic fasting.
Dr. Goldhamer was the principal investigator in two landmark studies. The first: “Medically Supervised Water-Only Fasting in the Treatment of Hypertension” appeared in the June 2001 issue of the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics. Its publication marked a turning point in the evolution of evidence supporting the benefits of water-only fasting. The second study: “Medically Supervised Water-Only Fasting in the Treatment of Borderline Hypertension,” appeared in the October 2002 issue of the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine.
Currently, Dr. Goldhamer is directing a team that is developing a prospective study, incorporating random assignment and long-term follow-up on the cost and clinical outcomes in the treatment of diabetes and high blood pressure with fasting and a health-promoting diet.
After completing his chiropractic education at Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon, Dr. Goldhamer traveled to Australia, where he became licensed as an osteopathic physician. He is the author of The Health Promoting Cookbook and co-author of The Pleasure Trap: Mastering The Hidden Force That Undermines Health and Happiness.
