Board-certified neurologist and perennial #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. David Perlmutter is our guest today in Episode 954 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

 

The rise of interest in the relationship between gut health and virtually every other aspect of overall health has been quite stark over the past couple of years. And for a Naples, Florida-based board-certified neurologist and perennial #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. David Perlmutter (listen to our previous interviews with him in Episode 867Episode 725, and on Ask The Low-Carb Experts Episode 51), the impact of the microbiome on the brain is indelibly connected. You probably know him well for his focus on the dangers of consuming grains on your brain health with his recent runaway hit books Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar--Your Brain's Silent Killers and The Grain Brain Cookbook: More Than 150 Life-Changing Gluten-Free Recipes to Transform Your Health. But now he's back with a brand new book in 2015 zeroing in on this banding together of gut-brain health entitled Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain–for Life.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Perlmutter have a fascinating discussion of how the gut bacteria plays a critical role in brain health, the scientific relationship between poor gut health and issues like depression, mood disorders, and other cognitive disorders, why inflammation and bowel permeability develop in someone with poor gut health, the damaging effects that women having a C-section are putting on the future health of their babies, the devastating impact of overusing antibiotics on the human microbiome that leads to obesity, the key markers to look for demonstrating gut permeability, how fecal transplants can be helpful in treating infections as well as replenishing gut flora that's been depleted, how reducing carbohydrates and consuming more probiotic foods is critical to reestablishing gut and brain health, why the foods you choose to consume are the biggest factor in revolutionizing brain health through the gut, the kind of fermented foods you should be eating in your low-carb diet, and so much more! If you're just eating low-carb and thinking that's enough to make every aspect of your health optimal, then you'll want to hear what Dr. David Perlmutter has to say about enhancing your low-carb lifestyle to improve your health, especially in the brain, even more!
