Host Brad Kearns welcomes Kale Brock from a natural setting in Australia, amidst the noisy cicada beetles chirping in the background. Kale is on an awesome global adventure to discover the secrets of the gut microbiome, and has just released his wildly popular Australian book to the USA market, The Gut Healing Protocol: An 8-week holistic program to rebalance your microbiome. Kale offered up some memorable insights and quotes in this lively discussion, such as: "You can't make informed decisions until you're informed."
Kale's quest to understand the important role of the gut microbiome in all aspects of health took him to Namibia to film a documentary called, The Gut Movie, which has been playing to sold out audiences throughout Australia. In this show, they discuss the miraculous results of FMT treatments (aka poop transplants). Kale talks about how most everyone has an imbalanced microbiome caused by antibiotic use (at any point in your life!), or obtaining antibiotics in food (eat organic animal products!) or tap water. Yes, we are all messed up, but gut problems manifest in assorted different ways. "Genetics loads the gun, lifestyle pulls the trigger" (Kale quoting another health expert).
Kale's holistic program includes getting BEEMS time: Breathe, Eat, Earth, Move, and Sunshine. The book discusses a healing protocol where you restrict certain foods for a short time and emphasize diverse plant intake, consume high quality probiotics, drink your bone broth, and try his favorite remedy of aloe vera and bovine colostrum. Here's a great analogy: The gut is like a screen door, designed to let in fresh air and sunshine but keep out insects and leaves and other debris from outside. Leaky gut is like a screen door with tears in it. If you have leaky gut, focus on that first. Eating healthy foods and probiotics may go to waste otherwise. Enjoy an extremely informative show, and check out the book. If you order directly from PrimalNutrition.com, we'll send a free bottle of Primal Probiotics! Just mention to live chat that you heard the host boast about the offer on this show.
