本集主題:「發酵文化:古老發酵食如何餵養人體微生物?」介紹 訪問:推薦人: 番紅花 內容簡介: 發酵飲食不是可有可無的選擇 而是餵養人體微生物最好的方法 跟著《科學人雜誌》記者來趟發酵飲食全球之旅 一探悠久的飲食文化、科學的健康風潮 選擇對微生物更友善的飲食生活 重新認識優格、泡菜、魚露、可可、康普茶等自然發酵食物 每個人都應該吃發酵食物!六大理由告訴你 理由1:人類和微生物是生命共同體,沒有微生物,我們就會徹底完蛋! 理由2:人體微生物吃不飽,就會開始「吃」我們。 理由3:微生物最愛吃的,就是兼具纖維和益菌生的發酵食物大餐。 理由4:餵飽微生物的好處多多,可以抗發炎、抗過敏、降低心血管疾病風險。 理由5:自然發酵食物富含最佳益菌生營養素,比市售益生菌保健品更有效益。 理由6:自然發酵食物是飲食文化重要一環,更是人類醫食同源的智慧結晶。 好好餵養微生物,牠們也會好好滋養你 ▲沒有微生物,我們根本活不了 沒有微生物,我們就不可能發展出正常運作的免疫系統,也無法從食物中攝取到許多額外養分,身體更會變成任何病原體都可以趁虛而入的地方。 ▲微生物為健康助攻,我們卻開始殘害微生物 我們不僅選錯了食物,也選錯了生活方式!小感冒或小傷口動不動就用抗生素,氣密窗、濾網吸塵器、抗菌清潔用品、室內抽水馬桶都會擾亂人體內的古老微生物。此外,食品業去除食物中的纖維,推出大量的單一碳水化合物食品,這兩個雙重打擊導致我們體內的微生物居民開始缺乏牠們偏好的食物。 ▲微生物吃不飽,健康問題跟著來 當人體微生物無法從我們的飲食中獲得充足食物,可能會狼吞虎嚥腸道內壁的黏液層,這種「腸漏症」已證實與全身慢性發炎、肥胖、過敏、糖尿病、憂鬱症等息息相關。 ▲自然發酵食物是名符其實的「微生物料理大餐」 人類經過數千年的試驗,流傳下來讓人不生病的自然發酵食物,裡面的細菌與真菌種類非常豐富,光是每公克的韓式泡菜裡就有8千8百萬個活菌。 作者介紹:凱薩琳.哈爾蒙.柯瑞吉(Katherine Harmon Courage) 「美國最佳科學與自然著作」獎得主、《科學人雜誌》特約編輯及記者,作品曾刊登於《紐約時報》、《國家地理雜誌《Wired》、《Gourmet》、《華盛頓郵報》等。著有《章魚:海洋中最神祕的生物》(Octopus: The Most Mysterious Creature in the Sea)。目前居住在美國科羅拉多州。詳細資訊請見作者官網:katherinecourage.com,或追蹤她的推特帳號@KHCourage。 推薦人粉絲頁: 番桌•番桌 出版社粉絲頁: 方舟文化

Dr. John Douillard: How to Safely Bring Wheat and Dairy Back Into Your Diet With A Scientific and Clinically-Proven Approach | Ep.012

Ancestral Health Radio

Play Episode Listen Later Feb 28, 2017 59:29


Plant domestication, most scientists think, made its debut some 10,000 years ago, with grain storage cropping up about 11,000 years ago. An ancient site in Israel yielded a hearty collection of grains, which were dated to about 23,000 years ago, according to a 2004 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences paper. But such an early appearance of wild cereals in the human diet—as this new paper proposes—would push the assumed date of substantial grass-seed eating back more than 70,000 years.  This first bit is taken from an article published on December 17th, 2009 by author Katherine Harmon for Scientific American, and can also be found on yesterday's (2/27/2017) post on the official Ancestral Health Radio Facebook page. So... If our hunter-gatherer kin were eating cereal grains, why are modern diet fads telling us to avoid them? That's what today's guest, Dr. John Douillard, breaks down and explains on this episode of Ancestral Health Radio. John argues that it's not the grains, it's your porous digestive tract. And that It's not the dairy, it's your clogged lymphatic system.  So what're we to do? Dr. John Douillard explains how we can heal our gut, drain our lymph, and stoke our lost metabolic fire. All with common fruits, vegetables, and spices. On top of that, in today's episode, you'll learn... Why our ability to detox is directly linked to our overall health, The deer study and why your dietary needs change with the seasons, How to make your own "prebiotic slime", and... Much, much more. Subscribe on  iTunes | Stitcher Radio | Google Play | SoundCloud Episode Breakdown John explains what happens when you take ancient health practices (that have been time-tested for thousands of years) and back them up with modern science Why Dr. Douillard's intended three-month stay in India turned into an immersive year and a half study of traditional Ayurvedic medicine Dr. Douillard breaks down the meaning of the word "Ayurveda" and why that's important What is circadian medicine? John tells us why we may have prematurely convicted wheat Dr. Douillard talks about how we as a species have been gathering grains longer than we've technically been hunting wild game The underlying key to optimal health John says our ability to digest well is directly linked to our ability to detoxify well Do anti-nutrients act as intestinal immune stimulators? Why John says we need a strong digestive system John gives suggestions on how and where to improve your diet The problem with vegetable oils The types of bread Dr. Douillard suggests we buy Dr. John Douillard versus Dr. David Perlmutter (author of Grain Brain) James discusses what he calls "metabolic flexibility" Why eating with the seasons impacts your gut microbiome The deer study John's 3-season diet challenge The brain-drain effect and the lymphatic system's role within our body The three main causes of aging, according to Dr. Douillard What happens when you alkalize your blood What are static electricity clinics and why would you want to alkalize your blood? What happens when you predigest coconut oil? Why certain farmers have a hard time breaking down wheat and dairy due to a lack of microbial diversity from pesticide dust What is baker's asthma and why does it matter? Why John says you don't need to ferment your foods in the summertime The huge difference between nostril and mouth breathing Why your dietary needs change with the seasons What does lipophilic mean and why is it important when gaining weight? Whole wheat versus processed wheat What happens when tribal hunters don't bring home the "bacon" Why Amish children have the lowest cases of asthma on the planet Why gallbladder surgery is the #3 surgery in America The purpose of the gallbladder and its role in the body The one major cause of gallbladder disease How to reboot bile flow with a simple 3-ingredient juice blend Dr. Douillard says type-2 diabetes is not a pancreatic condition (it's this, instead) Why there are more fatty liver disease cases than ever before How to naturally stoke your digestive fire through pancreatic enzymes and bile flow What five spices (when consumed together) help you produce more of your own digestive juices?  Hunter-gatherer fiber intake versus the SAD (standard American diet) model How to make your own "prebiotic slime" How to clean and move your lymph with natural, antioxidant-rich foods The do's and don'ts of today's podcast
