The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter MD and Dr. Steven Gundry

Dr. Steven Gundry is a renowned cardiothoracic surgeon, New York Times best-selling author, and medical researcher. During his 40-year career in medicine, he has performed over 10,000 heart surgeries and developed life-saving medical technology. In 2008, his book, Dr. Gundry’s Diet Evolution, revealed his new career shift—using nutrition to help patients heal themselves and avoid surgery. His second book, and the subject of our discussion today, is the New York Times bestseller The Plant Paradox. The book outlines a 90-day plan for some of the world’s most pressing health issues, from obesity to heart disease. Gundry MD, founded by Dr. Gundry in 2016, is a wellness blog and YouTube channel equipping people with powerful tools in the journey to reclaim their health.

In our interview today we’re going to explore the very interesting world of plant lectins, a unique type of protein that plants developed to protect themselves against predation. As Dr. Gundry reveals in this interview, it turns out that plant lectins may very well be threatening to human health.

We also cover how artificial sweeteners are threatening to the gut, the dangers of soy, why we should eat foods that are “in season”, and other interesting ideas as they relate to the health of the gut and to inflammation, the cornerstone of virtually all degenerative conditions.

    We felt Ripped off by Dr.Gundry’s much promoted, VITAL REDS, we bought 6, thinking it was surely ORGANIC &* GMO FREE? Not the case,!!!!! after a lost of struggle to get information on this product, one of his staff members finally told fus the truth, yes a lot of it’s ingredients are NOT ORGANIC, and there are some GMO’S, what is he doing, cheating people by omission? in addition we where harassed by sales calls barely one month after purchase. SAD, people are learning to TRUST Functional Doctors, then we get this slick operator disguised as a top Functional Cardiologist??

      I’d like to know what isn’t “organic” for example. And what is GMO. I know on one of Gundry’s trips to Italy he found a sour cherry tree and pointed it out as a source ingredient in his Vital reds. I would not expect this to be organic. It grows wild there. But the GMO claim is very disconcerting. Please be more specific.
