Dr. Steven Gundry is a cardiologist, heart surgeon, medical researcher, and author. His New York Times Best Sellers: Dr. Gundry’s Diet Evolution and the newly released The Plant Paradox, have helped countless people avoid surgery through a radical break from traditional dietary wisdom. This week Dr. Gundry sits down with Nikki and gives us the 411 on lectins, the sticky proteins plants make as a defense system from predators (AKA: the things that paralyze insects). He reminds us once again that plants are living things just trying to protect themselves and their offspring, and, because nobody wants a Venus Fly Trap in their belly, he guides us through a lectin-free diet that can clear away brain fog, reduce joint inflammation, and help you shed pounds. He also shares knowledge bombs on our gut garden, the power of intermittent fasting, and dietary measures that can help prevent Alzheimer’s. Food is medicine and this ep is a seriously enlightening consultation. The doctor will see you now.
