https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/wheatpodcast Are you gluten-free or dairy-free? If so, you might not have to be. In his brand new book "Eat Wheat: A Scientific and Clinically-Proven Approach to Safely Bringing Wheat and Dairy Back Into Your Diet", my former podcast guest Dr. John Douillard introduces a scientific and clinically-proven approach to addressing food intolerances. He thinks that after generations upon generations of human beings eating wheat and only a relatively short few thousand years of hunting meat, we are actually genetically better equipped to eat wheat than meat. In the book Dr. Douillard, who I first interviewed in "The Zen of "The Zone" - How To Breathe The Right Way When You're Working Out" (and who first inspired me to begin nasal rather than mouth breathing during my workouts) addresses the underlying cause of the gluten-free epidemic. He explains how a breakdown in digestion has damaged the intestinal wall and leaked undigested foods and environmental toxins into the body’s lymphatic system, causing “grain brain” symptoms and food allergies. Although eliminating wheat and dairy from your diet may help your symptoms, it is a Band-Aid solution. Backed by more than 600 scientific studies, Eat Wheat claims to address the root cause: weak digestion and the inability to efficiently break down harmful pollutants and toxins that can predispose you to a host of chronic degenerative diseases, such as cancer and autoimmune disorders. Dr. Douillard, DC, CAP, is a globally recognized leader in the fields of natural health, Ayurveda, and sports medicine. He is the creator of LifeSpa.com, the leading Ayurvedic health and wellness resource on the web. LifeSpa.com is evolving the way Ayurveda is understood around the world, with over 700 articles and videos proving ancient wisdom with modern science. Dr. John is the former Director of Player Development for the New Jersey Nets NBA team, author of 6 health books, a repeat guest on the Dr. Oz show, and featured in Woman’s World Magazine, Huffington Post, Yoga Journal and dozens of other publications. He directs LifeSpa, the 2013 Holistic Wellness Center of the year in Boulder, CO.

Episode SponsorAncient Nutrition OUR MISSIONTo restore our health, strength and vitality by providing history's healthiest whole food nutrients to the modern world. AncientNutrition.com The fact that gluten is bad is one of the pillars of Paleo and any Paleo person worth their sea salt knows that hunter gatherers didn't eat grains and that of all the grains, gluten containing ones, like wheat and rye, are the worst. But what if grain brain and wheat belly got it wrong? What if Paleo man did consume cereal grasses and what if there were actually benefits to eating grains? If you're feeling skeptical right now, we don't blame you, when our Editor in Chief Cain Credicott forwarded the contact information for Dr. John Douillard, author of Eat Wheat, we thought that this had to be a hoax, but after talking to Dr. John, we realized that his approach towards consuming grains has a lot more in common with Paleo than we initially thought, and that it might not be a crazy idea after all. In our conversation we discuss: The 400 billion pounds of toxic chemicals that might be the root cause of our digestive health issues. How to reboot your digestive system. How digestive irritants like lectins may actually help to detoxify your digestive system. The right time of year to eat wheat. Which ancient grains are the best. What you can do to bring bread back into your life without compromising your health.
