JANUARY 31, 2023

share episode


Have you ever tried out a diet just because it was trendy?

In this episode, we take a deep dive into what these diets actually do to the microbiomes inside our body. Kashif is joined by Cardiologist and #1 New York Times Best-Seller, Dr. William Davis. Dr. William is known for his book series called Wheat Belly, and has authored books such as Undoctored, and most recently, Super Gut.

Kashif and William discuss how our genetics dictate what's most effective for us when it comes to food consumption. From a personal anecdote and through various studies, William reveals that though vegetarianism works for certain people, the effect is quite opposite for him. With that, they discuss finding what works for you, and the possible ways to make up microbes that will help the body battle toxins.

Furthermore, there are truths about food that have been declared healthy for a period of time now yet are actually harmful. Take grain for example, a lot of people incorporate wheat and different types of grain which were actually modified so that there are increased yield yet were never questioned if they were still safe for human consumption as it produces toxins and binding materials that make you unable to absorb minerals that are needed by the body.

Here are more points of discussion that were brought up in the episode:

  • How certain truths about food are not common knowledge
  • The different elements that we are exposed to that affect our health
  • The effects of pest-resistant properties added into crops that we consume
  • The state of modern soil and modern grain in relation to our health
  • The gastrointestinal microbiome
  • SIBO - Small Intestinal Biome Overgrowth
  • Bacteriocins effective against fecal microbes
  • How to produce helpful microbes at home
  • How lactobacillus reuteri affects social phenomena
  • Oxytocin and physical health
  • Sugar and other food's metabolic consequences
