“I have battled Celiac disease for some time and got about 80% better with a SCD/Paleo diet… but the Perfect Health Diet was the first book that could finally answer that last 20% with science based logic.”
That’s an Amazon review I wrote in the October 2010 after I read Dr. Paul Jaminet’s book, The Perfect Health Diet. At the time, I had been on SCD over 1 year and wanted to graduate to Paleo, but I was still stuck. I wasn’t sure what to do next, let alone worried about what I’d eat for the rest of my life.
Paul’s book helped answer some of those questions for me. It helped me realize I could live a long and healthy life with science explaining why.
That’s why I couldn’t wait to have him on the show one day…
Along the way, Paul’s series on Bowel Disease helped me push through a few obstacles. For example, some of you may not know this, but one of the biggest health jumps I made came after I tested positive for a parasite and treated it in 2011 (more blog posts to come soon).
We’re going to be writing more about bacterial, fungal, and parasite infections in the future, but here’s the bottom line:
If you have a parasite, bacterial, or fungal infection, you need to treat it before you can get healthy. In most cases, diet alone can’t treat these buggers.
That’s why I decided to invite Paul on the show to discuss the role of parasite and bacterial infections in IBD. It’s critical for anyone wanting to restore their gut health and live a long, healthy life.
