I don’t want you to just listen to these episode, I want you to send them to all of your contacts, because this episode might change their life!
I want us to start with gut health. What is gut health? Or should I say, what is considered a healthy gut?
Dr. Zach explains that as consumers we are really unaware of what gut health really is. As opposed to trying to achieve a healthy gut, your focus should be to have an intelligent gut! You want your gut to intelligent enough to know what it should keep in, and what it should push out. The membrane that lines your gut, is large enough to cover 2 tennis courts, and it consists of trillion cells. But our gut membrane is ONLY a single sell thick! Crazy right! ONE! One cell! This gut membrane is what’s responsible for protecting your body against what you take in from the outside world.
Whats even crazier is the fact that the gut’s intelligence isn’t in the cell, it’s between the cells. There are these velcro like proteins that hook-and-eye each other together, and they attach one cell to the next. Now you have this very tightly weaved membrane that is incredibly thin! If that velcro starts to break down, then you start to get leaking across the membrane… and you now have leaky gut and an unintelligent gut. Think of that tightly woven membrane as now fish net stalkings that are allowing your food to pass through your gut and into your blood stream. What’s fascinating is that even if you are eating the cleanest diet in the world, there are still toxins in “clean” healthy foods that are leaking through your gut. Dr. Zach sees this in his patients that eat incredibly clean, but continue to have bloating, discomfort, and weight gain on a super clean diet. Essentially we are fighting our food.
Dr. Zach hypothesizes that every U.S. resident has some degree of leaky gut, simply due to the level of toxins in ALL our foods. However, it’s how your body responds to that leaky gut, that’s important.
When you consume a meal and you have leaky gut, your immune system has to react to every meal… and that food fight requires a large energy output. In this episode Dr. Zach Bush explains exactly what happens in the body. The energy response to leaky gut can cause brain fog, inability to focus or complete tasks, inconsistent sleeping patterns, and pore sex drive. And leaky gut can effect ANY organ in the body!
