In our last couple +1s, we’ve been hanging out in our guts. (Good times!)
 
Surprisingly, that’s where we discovered 90% (!) of our serotonin and 70-80% (!!) of our immune systems.
 
Crazy, eh?
 
Today we’re going to spend another moment on the subject.
 
Get this: Although modern medicine pretty much ignores the gut as its standard of care focuses on alleviating symptoms rather than Optimizing systems, the idea that our guts play a central role in our well-being isn’t a new idea.
 
Let’s jump into a time machine and rewind the clock about 2,400 years. 
 
Destination: Ancient Greece. 
 
It’s time to meet the father of medicine: Hippocrates.
 
You know what he said? “All disease begins in the gut.”
 
Dr. Gundry echoes that wisdom and adds a little bonus gem (via The Longevity Paradox) where he tells us: “As Hippocrates famously and wisely said, ‘All disease begins in the gut.’ The good news is that all disease can be stopped there as well.”
 
That’s Today’s +1.
 
What’s ONE thing you KNOW you could be doing to Optimize your nutrition?
 
Is TODAY a good day to make that happen?
 
Fantastic.
 
High fives.
 
Low fives.
 
Mid fives. (Right around the gut!)
 
Etc.
 
Let’s do this!!!
