  • Have you heard of Sirtuin suppressors? One 1/16 th of a sq inch of bay leaf<>boiled in tea will start cell cycle arrest of all germs in your urine. I was experimenting with a tea, and I put too much bay leaf in, which is more potent in water than turned down in a beef stew. The doctor I went to the next day let me I had no germs in my urine; however, because of the of the cramping I had from the excess amount (2 bay leaves), this collapsed my cervix! I do not know how long this would take to get to tissue to make no germs. As always talk with your doctor. This is on NIH’s Pub Med NCBI and this is a SIRT 2 suppressor.

  • Also, mothers often chew their food first and give it to their babies when they are very little that must pass on good bacteria too! ��❤️

  • Does having a healthy gut Correlate to every organ in your body? Just curious if anyone know because if that so then healing the gut means you’ll eventually be healthy from all other diseases

  • What? Did he just say we need sugar everyday to keep our microbiome healthy at 10:30?
    What about the Carnivore s who haven’t eaten anything but meat for 10 + years?

  • After watching the entire video, I would say there is one thing to keep in mind, in my simple opinion. Although this line of thinking is fascinating and obviously beneficial, when the person (or people) are following a line, so to speak, they often become closed minded in certain areas and find it hard to think outside of the box in which the line of study they are in has absorbed them. Conclusions are not so easy to come by and some conclusions, no matter how brilliant the author, can be close minded at times. That’s why as imperfect and flawed beings, opinions change and evolve. Ultimately, we need to trust Jesus Christ and follow His guidance in our lives. I know years ago the Holy Spirit instructed me regarding diet in ways that made no sense to me at that time. This was before internet, Google, youtube and all of that. Now I know why. There’s much we don’t comprehend or understand. Trust God and obey. I believe He cares about everything that impacts us. Everything seen and unseen.

  • Love love love this interview!!!!����!!! I’m in my 3rd year on a ketogenic diet, and it’s been a real life changer for me! I’ll be 45 this summer. And as I get older I do think more about hormone health. It’s comforting to know that there is a female gynecologist who is keto! I don’t have to explain to her that I don’t feel like I’m gonna die because I refuse to eat brown rice or bread! I can just learn from her wisdom and ask questions! Thank you Bri������

  • Uncover the truth behind why we eat what we eat… and how you can return to the path of vibrant health and vitality with Eric Edmeades’s FREE masterclass�� https://go.mindvalley.com/6z3nxF9T

  • My name is Bridget Grant, I live in Jamaica of the Caribbean and I would love for my husband and myself to do this program. My husband was diagnosed with ATLL 2018 July and we have changed how we eat and some of our thinking towards meat and food in general. Since last December 2018, his monthly test done has shown very minimally to no signs of the condition. We really would love to get assistance in changing our minds totally from the way we were taught to eat. Please help us, my husband, that we can have many many years together with great health. Looking forward to your reply.

  • recently, the mechanism of depression was discovered. it’s not by bacteria. it’s by virus.

  • I would love to help you on achieving your optimal health! Fulvic Acid comes from the depths of the Earth containing 70+ minerals and vitamins. It also contains electrolytes, prebiotics, enzymes, antioxidants, and amino acids. This is SO powerful, bringing 45% more oxygen at the cellular level, leading to better breathing. Incorporating fulvic in your body can: improve gut health, enhance circulation, improve brain function, help nutrients absorb better, detox heavy metals/toxins, and more. I have never seen a supplement like this. It has changed my life. Feel free to look around on my website.:)

  • I would guess its the preservatives in processed food that kill the gut bacteria, see how preservatives job are to kill things that would digest the food/ go rotten.

  • I just started reading this book…got the Kindle edition and so far I love it….I always think that my weight is directly affected NOT ONLY by the foods I eat, but by my lifestyle choices and my home space too.  I my house is cluttered,  my life seems cluttered and more weight on my body is like physical clutter.

    I AM EAGER TO LEARN the principles of Ayurveda, this ancient Indian medicin/practice which identifies that we are all created with different constitutions, some heavier and slower, some lean and quick, some strong and muscular.  It takes into effect these unique characteristics when considering foods that work best in and for our body, amounts of exercise we need, amounts of rest, etc… it is interesting.  For example, my husband’s constitution and make up is the opposite of mine. Having this awareness can help us with our relationships. We can see and appreciate the differences we have in each other and be more gentle and patient and honor our differences instead of trying to change others. The book also points out when we are out of balance, (actually the whole thing is about being in and finding balance) and how to get back in balance in all areas of our lives. 

     I dont consider this to be a “metaphysical” book, some may feel I otherwise, but  for me as. Christian, this approach honors that we are all created differently, like the difference between a swan and a humingbird. We can honor these differences in each other and at the same time celebrate and accept who we are made to be. I persoanlly like to explore many different approaches to healthy clean living. I accept what resonates with me and embrace it and encourage others to do the same. 

    This practice or approach to better health and harmony, also places emphasis on changing and adjusting our eating and exercise habits to the seasonal changes and also helps us understand the changing seasons of our lives.  Wanting this understanding is what actually drew me to the book, as this past winter I naturally slowed down and instead of my hard core exercise, I did yoga everyday. It seemed so right for me and my body at the time, and I felt great. When Spring came, I had a huge surge of energy and got back into doing more regular fitness exercise… now I need and desire to Fina a balance in that as I swung the other way and haven’t done yoga and really miss it.  

    I really liked the fact that I listened to my body and honored it’s natural rythums, and I want to learn more about how to do that. I hope to stop putting so much pressure on myself and start tuning into what REALLY works for me.  I would like to find balance and moderation by knowing what I need at this season of my life and then be ready and willing to change with the seasons and events that come up, as God leads me through life.  I want to honor the temple of my body and be loving and accepting of others including and especially my husband:). We can’t change others we can only change ourselves, but we can be a good example for change in the lives of the people we love..

  • If the gut bacteria is pretty much set for life by the age of 3 why do people that move from Burkina Faso (ex here) to Europe change their gut bacateria?

  • Watch Heal Your Gut Guy videos! They are informative! He healed himself of alot of gut issues like Chrohns, candida, food allergies etc

  • Best thing you can do for your health is stay away from a doctor girls should look into avoiding the contraception pill as well

    Hundreds of years from now, people will look back in medical care in this age with horror

  • The good professor and his forever ignorant colleagues should have listened more carefully to Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride instead of demonizing her.
    Her work on gut and psychology syndrome was ignored by all of you “clever” scientists….


  • @ 31:11 Excess Carbohydrates from the Sugar in the Coke and the Wheat in the buns/rolls that the burger is in, is the root cause of the weight gain. Meat and Fat eaten on it’s own isn’t going to cause weight gain, however, I have seen Sugar added to some Bacon and Chicken in Supermarkets, which really isn’t in the farmed natural product and shouldn’t be added; so not sure if the fast food outlets do the same. To avoid weight gain and cure themselves of Carbohydrate related diseases (of which there are many) people turn to LCHF/Low-Carb or Carnivore where the safe Carbohydrates consumed are Vegetables as far as LCHF/Low-Carb is concerned. In the scheme of things Carbohydrates are not essential because the body can process non-Carbohydrate food via the Gluconeogenesis process, which yes outputs Glucose, which is the only form of fuel that one’s Mitochondria require.


  • I just had a c-section and so this was just another confirmation that I need to continue on my journey to heal my gut. Such a great lecture! thank you! Learned a lot

  • I just wonder why I can’t find someone who complains about this diet plan. It’s not natural as there is nothing that works for everyone, starting to feel suspicious. In fact, there’s a way to buy this cheaper, but isn’t that strange no one talks negative about it?


  • TOTAL HEALTH(short version): tea of 22 herbs (4 bitter), 16 spices, a thin sliced lime (8 times more lamonoids than lemon) with trace elements and honey. A little apple cider vinegar if you want.

  • All mental health problems are caused by severe calcium deficiency. This begins in the womb or in infancy. The human body can assimilate calcium only from fresh, natural, uncooked foods especially leafy greens and grasses, wheatgrass. Artificial supplements do not work. The best way to get the calcium from greens is through green smoothies.

    Brain chemical imbalances have never been proved.

    One of the reasons why mental health problems generally develop or manifest in late adolescence is because of the body’s need for tremendous amounts of calcium due to the sudden spurt in physical growth.

    Calcium is needed for proper neurotransmitter function.

    It is also important to minimise chronic cellular inflammation by avoiding white sugar, refined carbs and oils and fats that increase cellular inflammation.

    Cellular inflammation prevents the absorption of nutrients vitamins and minerals.

  • so dissappointing hardly a mention of fruit, the most important food for a diverse gut microbiota due to the high level of fibre, particularly pectin, not to mention the abundance of polyphenols. seaweed and yoghurt… lol..

  • Germfree animals live longer but are sicker… That don’t make much sense…
    But, if we look at people that live away from others, they are very healthy and have much more abilities. But if we interact with them, they get killed by our bacteria, viruses and so on.

  • I can’t even take probiotics as soon as I do they start fighting with something inside and massive lethargy and depression follows

    Same with coconut oil capsule insane die-off (I assume)

    Tough to know how to get started


  • I have Ocular Toxoplasmosis and I have found the fact about Lactobacillus Casei that attacks this parasite and makes me feel good.

Keto is very tricky if you can’t eat dairy or whole egg. I’m excited to read this and I’ve already purchased it digitally. Thanks Dr. Bri❣️

  • So this guy just proves I AM WONDERFULLY MADE by my savior JESUS CHRIST!!!!! Any doctor who wants a real challenge and become famous-come find me and fix my gut. I am documented as permanently malnourished, I have 3/4 of my Antrum, Pylorus, and the first portion of my duodenum AND the Vagus Nerve WAS CUT.
