okay dr rutherford here and uh as we talked about earlier in several of our presentations is we’re diversifying this year remember that term we’re going to use it a lot here in the next 10 minutes and we’re diversifying i mean from presenting a lot of information on hashimoto’s and we’re going to kind of morph out into um weight loss and um we’re crossing swords with with weight loss as far as talking a lot about blood sugar i and as i talked about i think in a previous presentation uh blood sugar is massively underappreciated in this country as being a problem you don’t have diabetes no worries we’re good wow that leaves about 50 to 60 or 70 people out there have blood sugar problems that are screwing up their weight and screwing up their mic about today that uh or or research to see what was going on in the microbiome for those of you who’ve been in the auto immune world or those of you who’ve been in the mystery disease world and you’ve been exposed to gi panels that told you about this particular bacteria and that particular bacteria and this particular bacteria and you should take something for that you should take some of it that model is gone although i see a lot of people still coming in here with tests for that um and some people even go i took i took what the person told me and i felt better for a little bit that model is gone the microbiome is where it’s at the whole enchilada the whole three to five pounds of of um of bacteria that’s in your gut that is now being considered uh as another organ system it’s literally being considered as an organ system what might you hurt have and and here’s the thing about the microbiome let’s start off with it’s not all good bacteria it’s a balance okay it’s it’s interesting but there needs to be a balance in the microbiome of like 80 good bacteria and like 20 bad bacteria it’s uh uh it’s it’s interesting because obviously we all think oh good good good and then you take a probiotic we blow up if you’re one of those people you either have like small intestinal bacterial overgrowth meaning you have a lot of bad bacteria and it’s taking those good bacteria from your probiotics and it’s turning them rapidly into bad bacteria right in front of your very nose if you will because that usually produces a lot of not very pleasant smelling gas so um so basically the microbiome is being is still in the process of being researched but you may have heard it about it uh relative to weight loss okay so and and in that presentation that i attended this was several years ago it um they talked about this was the presentation of they took feces out of a obese rat and put it into a skinny rat didn’t change anything else and the rat got big okay and then they took the microbiome feces out of a skinny rat and put it into a heavy rat and you got it the heavy rat got skinny this was the beginning of it all it goes way beyond that way beyond that but they now have they actually have actually have inhumans fecal implants and i’m not sure they find people with the proper microbiome or how they do it but they take the proper microbiome out of there they put it in people who are overweight and they’ll lose weight it’s expensive i think it’s like 25 grand i don’t think insurance pays for it and all that type of stuff but that’s not the point the point is this is your bacteria then and so they have proven that in that huge mass of bacteria there are certain bacteria that cause insulin to not work properly and spike insulin and the next next thing you know you’re spiking your blood sugar you’re in and next thing you know you’re getting insulin resistance the next thing you know insulin resistance leads to to fat gain and it only sees fat gain but it leaves fat gain that doesn’t want to go away so i mean that’s so that’s just like one teeny part of the microbiome in that study it was it was insane there was one study there where they took they have their certain rats that can go through a mole uh through a maze like crazy like no problem then the other one’s like you know and it’s like literally that’s it it’s done okay same thing took the microbiome out of the one who could get through the maze gave it to the one who couldn’t the one who couldn’t took theirs put it in here boom you know which way do i go which way do i go you know it’s like it’s like it’s like it’s it’s like amazing the doctor was presenting this went through this for like 20 like three hours and went over 25 different examples the microbiome affects everything we don’t even know all the things that affect you but it affects your hormones it affects your ability to to heal your leaky gut it affects your immune system it will dampen immune inflammation and autoimmunity if you get your microbiome under control it’s um it’s uh it’s it’s oh my goodness it’s uh so it has to do with weight loss it can um it it has to do with appetite it has to do a brain oh my god it has to do with brain function well we just talked about the rats right that’s brain function but way more than that way more than that as far as anxiety and depression and and maybe even dizziness and balance and vertigo if you have certain different types of problems with your cerebellum which is part of the brain that works with your ear to create your good balance uh it edge i just go go on and on okay so that’s the microbiome kind of in the cliff cliff cliff cliff cliff notes form okay but here’s the deal it’s not that it to fix it is is is is is somewhat straightforward it’s about diversity of fiber vegetables really it’s about diversity of fashion what’s this and what this pro what this um the microbiome project with this project this research project told us was they had researched every microbiome of everybody of every single country on planet earth literally every country and in many countries different parts of the country like the united states is like five different countries right the north the south the west that type of thing and then they went and they took the microbiome of like these indigenous crowds uh all um indigenous tribes okay and these tribes um some of them were like very very nomadic one particular one and i can’t think of the name of it now starts with an age but it they ate like 600 vegetables a year because they were nomadic that’s what they did they got up they ate this area until they couldn’t eat any more and then they moved on they had the best microbiome on planet earth now how they measure again i’m back to how do they measure what’s good and bad i i don’t exactly know i just know that they had the best and the united states of america had the worst the worst that’s not that’s not like an exaggeration it’s like we were like the worst like 149th or whatever the last place was so it’s about diversity it’s not it’s not even it’s not really even about amount of uh it’s about diversity of vegeta and they found like you know somewhere between 10 and 20 vegetables a day is is is is what’s needed to create the type of a diversity that you saw in those people with the nomadic tribe that was eating like 600 vegetables a year that may sound crazy but there’s ways to do it and then we we’ve we’ve um we’ve experimented with different ways of of having our patients do that but this has been a game changer for us as far as working with patients you’ve heard me talk about what a game changer blood sugar can be and how many people don’t even know that they have blood sugar problems and they think they’re fine and they tell they tell me oh i went to the doctor i just want you to say i went to a doctor this lady’s like this is like 275 pounds and she’s about five foot five she’s got a blood sugar problem trust me it’s like it’s impossible for her not to have a blood sugar problem but her numbers were normal and everything was fine she certainly had a microbiome problem based on her symptoms and and the microbiome massively affects blood sugar so so this is one of the reasons why in the hierarchy of things this is one reason why somebody might be told they have blood sugar problems be taking the metformin but it’s not working because this microbiome might be causing all kinds of problems with your insulin your blood sugar spikes blood sugar drops those types of things and a million other things this is huge i i would argue that you’re never going to get leaky gut healed if your microbiome isn’t right at least that’s what i’m kind of seeing right at this point in time so anyway so microbiome you know you can look it up it’s it’s it’s kind of out there now um but it’s just not out there i don’t when i when i talk to people every day i talk to people every day so i kind of get a feel for like what’s out there what’s what hasn’t gotten into the lexicon yet and all that type of stuff i’m not here no nobody’s coming here talking about the microbiome none of my patients are coming in here going they’re coming here going i’ve tried every diet in the man they’re coming here now lists of like 36 supplements that haven’t worked and all this type of stuff but nobody’s coming in here going i fixed my microbiome and i don’t feel any better that’s not happening i’m not i don’t hear the term microbiome so that’s kind of why i’m putting it out there direct your attention to maybe investigate it a little bit more and i think you’ll find that and and don’t be uh don’t don’t don’t look at it and go i’m gonna like i’d want i probably shouldn’t say this but i’m gonna say it i had one like um dietitian clinical nutritionist that i was uh going to treat she goes i’m a dietitian clinically you think you’re going to fix me by just changing my vegetable diversity and i was like no maybe i’m not it’s like it’s like the idea is too simple and and and and just trust me this is not a small thing this is this is this is a this is something that will i don’t care who you are if you look at this and you even you don’t have to get up to like 10 to 20 vegetables a day if you just change your diet towards more towards more uh diversity you’ll see a difference you’ll see there fiber is king i’ll go into that on another on another day so microbiome that’s where it’s at you’re going to hear about it in the future you have to hear about in the future it is huge in in fixing the gut it’s huge in fixing oral tolerance problems those of you have like 96 food sensitivities it it it’s just it’s a big deal so i would i would i would uh spend some time looking into that a little farther okay that’s it for today all right bye – Okay, Dr. Rutherford here. And as we talked about earlier in several of our presentations is we’re diversifying this year. Remember that term.
00:00:13
We’re gonna use it a lot here in the next 10 minutes. And we’re diversifying, and what I mean, from presenting a lot of information on Hashimoto’s and we’re gonna kind of morph out into weight loss and we’re crossing swords with weight loss, as far as talking a lot about blood sugar. And as I talked about, I think in a previous presentation, blood sugar is massively under appreciated in this country as being a problem. You don’t have diabetes. No worries! We’re good! Wow! That leaves about 50 to 60 or 70% of people out there who have blood sugar problems. They’re screwing up their weight and screwing up they’re (mumbles) about today. That, or research to see what was going on in the microbiome.
00:01:07
For those of you who’ve been in the autoimmune world or those of you who’ve been in the mystery disease world and you’ve been exposed to GI panels. They’ve told you about this particular bacteria and that particular bacteria and this particular bacteria and you should take something for that. You should take something for that. That model is gone. Although I see a lot of people still coming in here with tests for that. And some people even go, I took what the person told me and I felt better for a little bit. That model is gone. The microbiome is where it’s at. The whole enchilada, the whole three to five pounds of, bacteria that’s in your gut.
00:01:49
That is now being considered as another organ system.
00:01:54
It’s literally being considered as an organ system. What might you heard of like? And here’s the thing about the microbiome. Let’s start off with, it’s not all good bacteria (chuckles). It’s a balance. Okay? It’s interesting.
00:02:08
But there needs to be a balance in the microbiome of like 80% good bacteria and like 20% bad bacteria. It’s interesting because obviously we all think, oh, good, good, good and then you take a probiotic and we blow up. If you’re one of those people you either have like small intestinal bacterial overgrowth meaning you have a lot of bad bacteria and it’s taking those good bacteria from your probiotics and it’s turning them rapidly (chuckles) into bad bacteria. Right in front of your very nose, if you will. Because that usually produces a lot of not very pleasant smelling gas. So, so basically the microbiome is being, is still in the process of being researched but you may have heard it, about it at relative to weight loss. Okay? So, and in that presentation that I attended, this was several years ago, it, they talked about, this was the presentation of, they took feces out of a obese rat and put it into a skinny rat. Didn’t change anything else, and the rat got big. Okay? And then they took the microbiome feces out of a skinny rat and put it into a heavy rat.
00:03:32
And you got it, the heavy rat got skinny. This was the beginning of it all. It goes way beyond that, way beyond that. But they now have, they actual have, actually have in-humans fecal implants. And I’m not sure where they find people with the proper microbiome (chuckles) or how they do it. But they take the proper microbiome out of there and they put it in people who are overweight and they’ll lose weight. It’s expensive. I think it’s like 25 grand and I don’t think insurance pays for it and all that type of stuff. But that’s not the point. The point is, this is your bacteria and so they have proven that, in that huge mass of bacteria, there are certain bacteria that cause insulin to not work properly and spike insulin. And the next thing you know, you’re spiking your blood sugar, you’re, and the next thing you know, you’re getting insulin resistance. The next thing you know, insulin resistance leads to fat gain. And it not only leads in fat gain, but its leads to fat gain that doesn’t wanna go away. So, I mean, so that’s just like one teeny part of the microbiome.
00:04:37
In that study it was insane. There was one study there where they took, there are certain rats that can go through a mall, through a maze, like crazy. Like (vocalizing) no problem. Then the other ones like, (vocalizing) (loud pounding), you know and it’s like, literally that’s it. It’s done. Okay? Same thing, took microbiome out of the one who could get through the maze and gave it to the one who couldn’t. The one who couldn’t, (vocalizing). Took theirs, put it in here, boom! You know, which way do I go? Which way do I go? You know, it’s like amazing. They were, the doctor who was presenting this went through this for like three hours and went over 25 different examples. The microbiome affects everything. We don’t even know all the things that affect yet but it affects your hormones, it affects your ability to heal your leaky gut. It affects your immune system.
00:05:31
It will dampen immune inflammation and autoimmunity if you get your microbiome under control. It’s, oh, my goodness! It, so it has to do with weight loss. It can, it has to do with appetite. It has to do brain, oh my God! It has to do with brain function while we just talked about the rats, right? That’s brain function. But it way more than that.
00:05:55
Way more than that as far as anxiety and depression and maybe even dizziness and balance or vertigo. If you have certain different types of problems with your cerebellum which is a part of the brain that works with your ear to create your good balance. It, I can just go on and on. Okay, so that’s the microbiome kind of in the Cliff, Cliff, Cliff, Cliff, Cliff Notes form. Okay, here’s the deal. It’s not that, to fix it, is, somewhat straight forward.
00:06:31
It’s about diversity of fiber. Vegetables really. It’s about diversity of vegetables. What this, and what this pro..
00:06:41
what this, the microbiome project. What this project, this research project told us was, they had researched every microbiome of everybody, of every single country on planet earth. Literally every country. And in many countries, different parts of the country. Like the United States, there are like five different countries, right? The North, the South, the West, that type of thing. And then they went and they took the microbiome of like these indigenous crowds.
00:07:14
Indigenous tribes. Okay? And these tribes, some of them were like very, very nomadic. One particular one and I can’t think of the name of it now, starts with a, h.
00:07:25
But they ate like 600 vegetables a year because they were nomadic (chuckles). They did! They got up, they ate this area until they couldn’t eat anymore and then they moved on. They had the best microbiome on planet earth. Now how they’d measure? Again, I’m back to how do they measure what’s good and bad? I don’t exactly know. I just know that they had the best and the United States of America had the worst. The worst! That’s not like an exaggeration. It’s like, we were like the worst, like 140 ninth or whatever, the last place.
00:08:01
So it’s about diversity. It’s not really even about amount of, it’s about diversity of vegetable. And they found like, you know, somewhere between 10 or 20 vegetables a day, is what’s needed to create the type of diversity that you saw in those people with the nomadic tribes that was eating like 600 vegetables a year.
00:08:27
That may sound crazy but there’s ways to do it. And we’ve, experimented with different ways of having our patients do that. But this has been a game changer for us as far as working with patients. You’ve heard me talk about what a game changer blood sugar can be. And how many people don’t even know that they have blood sugar problems and they think they’re fine. And they tell me, oh, but I went to the doctor. I just don’t want you to say I went to the doctor. Let’s say, she’s like 275 pounds and she’s about five foot five. She’s got a blood sugar problem. Trust me! (chuckles). It’s like, it’s impossible for her not to have a blood sugar problem but her numbers were normal and everything was fine.
00:09:08
She certainly had microbiome problems based on her symptoms and the microbiome massively affects blood sugar.
00:09:15
So this is one of the reasons why in the hierarchy of things, is one reason why somebody might be told they have blood sugar problems, be taking the Metformin but it’s not working. Because this microbiome might be causing all kinds of problems with your insulin, your blood sugar spikes, blood sugar drops, those types of things. And a million other things. This is huge.
00:09:36
I would argue that you’re never gonna get leaky gut healed if your microbiome isn’t right. At least that’s what I’m kinda seeing right at this point in time. So anyway, so microbiome, you know, you can look it up. It’s kinda out there now but it’s just not out there. When I talk to people every day, I talk to people every day. So I kinda get a feel for like, what’s out there. What’s hasn’t gotten into the lexicon yet and all that type of stuff. (mumbles) Nobody’s coming in here and talking about the microbiome. None of my patients are coming in here and going, they’re coming here and going, I tried every diet known to man. They’re coming here with now lists of like 36 supplements that haven’t worked and all this type of stuff. But nobody’s coming in here and going, “I fixed my microbiome and I don’t feel any better.” That’s not happening. I’m not, I don’t hear the term microbiome. So that’s kinda why I’m putting it out there. Direct your attention to maybe investigate it a little bit more. And I think you’ll find that. And don’t be, don’t look at it and go, oh, I’m gonna, like, I want (chuckles). I probably shouldn’t say this, but I’m gonna say it.
00:10:37
I had one like dietician clinical nutritionist that I was going to treat (chuckles), until she goes, “I’m a dietician clinical nutritionist, you think you’re gonna fix me by just changing my vegetable diversity?” And I was like, “No, maybe I’m not.” (laughing loudly) It’s like the idea is too simple. And, just trust me, this is not a small thing.
00:11:08
This is something that will, I don’t care who you are. If you look at this and you even, you don’t even have to get up to like 10 to 20 vegetables a day.
00:11:17
If you just change your diet towards more diversity, you’ll see a difference. You’ll see that fiber is king. I’ll go into that on another day.
00:11:28
So microbiome, that’s where it’s at. You’re gonna hear about it in the future. You have to hear about it in the future.
00:11:34
It is huge in fixing the gut. It’s huge in fixing oral tolerance problems for those of you have like 96 food sensitivities. It’s just, it’s a big deal.
00:11:47
So I would spend some time looking into that a little farther. Okay? That’s it for tonight. All right, bye.
