At 70 years young, Dr. Steven Gundry feels and exudes more energy than he did at 40. In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we’ll talk about how you can make sure you feel the same.
Dr. Gundry explains seven deadly energy disruptors that surround us in his new book, “The Energy Paradox: What to Do When Your Get-Up-and-Go Has Got Up and Gone.”
“The walking well have become proficient at shouldering a pretty heavy pack of fatigue,” he says in his book. “And it’s taking a toll on multiple fronts—from their personal contentment and fulfilment, to their ability to show up fully in relationships, to their ability to work.”
Things like glyphosate, fructose and environmental pollutants often lead to a leaky gut, mitochondrial gridlock and an epidemic of fatigue. That means greater inflammation and less energy from the places we need it most, like our brain and muscles.
“We literally are overfed and underpowered,” Dr. Gundry says. “We've been told, and you see it on commercials every day, that you need this energy drink or you need a 30-gram protein drink to get your energy up to take on the day. They literally clog the fuel line and that's our big paradox.
We go into these energy disruptors in our conversation that covers the “epidemic” of fatigue and low energy that we often take as a given in our busy day-to-day lives. Today’s episode will give you actionable tips on how to get some of that energy back into your life.
“We think that this is something because of our stressful existence or our hard work is just something underlying that we have to deal with or overcome,” Dr. Gundry says. “And it's absolutely not the case at all.”
As a practicing cardiologist and retired cardiothoracic surgeon, Dr. Gundry has become a major voice in the world of food toxins and what they do to us. He teaches people how to eat, guiding them on how to get ahead of the problem, not just fixing it after the fact.
He’s published more than 300 articles in peer-reviewed journals on using diet and supplements to eliminate heart disease, diabetes, autoimmune disease, and multiple other diseases. He’s also the best-selling author of “The Plant Paradox” and “The Longevity Paradox” books.
