This episode is brought to you by Apollo Neuro. And if you’ve listened for a while, you know that managing stress is important for health and getting a good night’s sleep is pivotal for our well-being. And those are two things we talk a lot about on this podcast and they’re top of my priority list for this year. Now, if you followed me at all last year, you know it was also a pretty emotionally taxing year for me. And at times I saw my sleep and my HRV especially take a hit. One thing that helped a lot for me was the Apollo device. This is a product I use regularly to help my body manage stress, achieve deeper sleep, and even help me focus when I’m working. The Apollo wearable helps transform how you feel through your sense of touch. There’s an app that lets you control through your Apple Watch or your phone and transition through day and night with different settings to help you relax, or fall asleep or focus, recover, or stay calm and present.

Hello and welcome to the Wellness Mama podcast. I’m Katie from, and I am back with a return guest I’m very excited to chat with Dr. Steven Gundry, author of The Plant Paradox, the new book Gut Check, and many others as well. And in this episode, we go deep on the topic of how to keep your gut in check and transform your health. He goes into some amazing information about this, including some statistics like that 94% of autoimmune patients can resolve their autoimmune issues and what it takes to do that. We focus on gut health, including some things you may not understand or know about ways that you might be harming your gut unintentionally, and some unique strategies for resolving leaky gut, which seems to be at the root of a lot of autoimmune issues.

Dr. Gundry: Hey, thanks for having me back again, I appreciate it.

Katie: Well, I always love our conversations, and I love that today we get to talk about a whole new book and a new focus for you. So to start off broad and with a little background, what was the inspiration for Gut Check and how diverse gut microbiome is so key for longevity and for essentially every aspect of health?

Dr. Gundry: Yeah, each of my books has built on the previous books. The Plant Paradox was the big book for me that is now almost seven years old. Because of The Plant Paradox, a lot of my patient population shifted to patients with autoimmune diseases, and probably 80% of my practice is now autoimmune patients who either aren’t getting any better or want to get off of biologic drugs. Gut Check is one of the chapters in the new book, Plant Paradox 2.0. Some interesting things about me is that I get to change my mind. If something, some research suggests that my initial recommendations might have been wrong, then I’m happy to write about it and admit it and present a new idea. There are a lot of authors who I’ve been saying the same thing for 20 odd years, despite a wealth of new research. We didn’t even know there were a hundred trillion bacteria in our gut, in our mouth, on our skin, until the Human Microbiome Project was completed.…
