EP 133 - Dr. Steven Grundy
Today we have a treat. It is Dr. Steven Gundry. Dr. Gundry is a brilliant cardiologist, heart surgeon, researcher and author. He wrote "The Plant Paradox", "The Longevity Paradox", "The Energy Paradox", and his newest book is called "Unlocking The Keto Code". Many are referring to his new book as 'Longevity Paradox 2.0', and Dr. Gundry would agree. Unlocking the Keto Code is the ultimate guide to longevity disguised as a keto book. Dr. Gundry says I'll hold your hand and show you how to succeed at keto without the deprivation or the damaging cardiovascular side effects often associated with high-fat diets. Perhaps most exciting, I'll reveal it comes down to 'just one thing' for living long and well until a ripe old age, as well as losing weight and feeling more energy than you ever have before.” We started out with the basics of ultimate health information. We talk a lot today about the importance of gut health. You are going to be surprised by a few things in your diet that you thought were good for you. There is so much to learn from Dr. Gundry about gut health, and how it can effect every aspect of your life. Enjoy this episode.
Dr. Steven Gundry has worked in medicine for over 40 years. Probably best known for his work as a cardiothoracic surgeon and heart surgeon… but today he is focusing on something very different: Teaching people how to avoid surgery by using his unique vision of human nutrition. His mission is to improve your health, happiness, and longevity by making simple changes to your diet. Director and Founder of the International Heart & Lung Institute as well as the Center for Restorative Medicine in Palm Springs and Santa Barbara, CA. Every day at these offices, Dr. Gundry helps patients learn how to take control of their weight, health, and energy by using his surprisingly simple diet advice. He began his surgical residency at the University of Michigan. While there, he was chosen to participate in a prestigious research program run by the National Institutes of Health. This is where his love of scientific research was born. He was one of the first 20 surgeons to test the implantable left ventricular assist device, a type of artificial heart. He also helped pioneer the use of robots for minimally-invasive heart surgery. He holds the record for the longest-surviving pig-to-baboon heart transplant – a procedure called xenotransplantation. Dr. Gundry and colleague Leonard Bailey, performed more infant and pediatric heart transplants than anyone else in the world. Dr. Gundry operated in more than 30 countries – including charitable missions to China, India, and Zimbabwe. He published over 300 articles or book chapters on cardiac surgery as well as on nutritional breakthroughs dealing with high cholesterol, heart disease, and hypertension. In 2001, He met a so-called “hopeless” patient suffering from heart disease. By making some unusual changes in his diet — almost by chance — this man made a complete turnaround. Eventually Dr. Gundry was able to give him the quadruple bypass surgery that has kept him alive to this day. In working with him, he made some major discoveries that changed the course of my career. He learned what nutrients were deficient in the American Diet, and which of our “staple” foods were actually toxic to the human body.
