How to Boost Healthy Gut Flora!

by Sean Croxton

Stop what you’re doing!

I know you want to watch today’s video, but last night’s radio show was an Instant Classic that you must listen to NOW. And when you’re done, please send it to as many friends as you can.

Dr. Dan Kalish rocked the UW Radio house, as we discussed neurotransmitter deficiencies and how they related to weight gain, cravings, depression, anxiety, and more. It was certainly one of my favorite shows ever.

As I was getting prepared for our show, I decided to go to Whole Foods and pick up a few of the supplements he recommends. I feel amazing! I guess I had a dopamine deficiency going on. A little 5-HTP, tyrosine, and B6 has me happy as a lark today (and super productive, too!).

Click HERE to listen to the show!

Once you’re done, come on back and check out the video below, which is the last episode of our Gut and Psychology Syndrome series.

You can check out Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride’s full-length lecture HERE.

I’ll be back next Tuesday (Monday’s are always hectic) to start a series of videos on fat loss, leptin, and a bunch of other fun stuff!

Enjoy your weekend!

Detoxification and YOUR Gut Flora! (DVD Winners Announced!)

by Sean Croxton

Is there anything that gut flora cannot do?

Yesterday, we discussed how the beneficial bacteria in your gut protect you from invaders, as well as their role in building a healthy intestinal tract.

Today, it gets even better!

Turns out that these bacteria also produce the entire spectrum of B vitamins, Vitamin K2, and amino acids. So when your body is running low on vitamin B16, for example, it calls your gut flora and has tells it to produce more of it. Very cool!

Also, in a nation obsessed with detoxification, we have completely ignored the role of gut flora in carrying harmful, cancer-causing chemicals and heavy metals out of our bodies. Wait until you hear about the rat study that demonstrated just how protective your gut flora (when healthy, of course) can be in eliminating mercury from your body. Absolutely mind blowing.

Click the video below and get your learn on!

I also announce the winners of yesterday’s Wise Traditions 2011 DVD giveaway. Thanks for all of your comments!

Enjoy the day.

Gut Bacteria is GOOD For You! (DVD Giveaway!)

by Sean Croxton

Oh, yeah! We’re giving away FREE schwag today!

I spent the couple days pouring over Natasha Campbell-McBride’s book Gut and Psychology Syndrome as well as watching the fascinating lecture she gave at The Weston A. Price Foundation’s Wise Traditions Conference 2011 in London on DVD.

In a nutshell, gut flora is king! If your flora is out of balance, you’ve got problems.

The problem is that we tend to not take our gut flora as seriously as we should. Why? Well, it’s most likely due to lack of education. No one is really talking about these health-giving microbes in schools or in the media — well, besides those ridiculous high-sugar yogurt commercials.

So, today’s video is my rendition of Dr. Campbell-McBride’s wonderful lecture. Actually, it’s the first 10 minutes of her 90-minute talk. There’s enough material in that lecture to cover two weeks of videos! Stay tuned for more.

Click the video below and be sure to leave a comment to enter our Wise Traditions London 2011 DVD giveaway contest. We’re giving away this 4-DVD set to three lucky commenters.

In addition to Dr. Campbell-McBride, the DVD includes presentations by:

* Zoe Harcombe, MA
* Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, MD
* Barry Groves, PhD
* Kaayla T. Daniel, PhD, CCN
* Jerry Brunetti

Have a gut flora-friendly day!
