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.
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 alleviatingsymptoms rather than Optimizingsystems, 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?“Alldisease begins in the gut.”
Dr. Gundry echoes that wisdom and adds a little bonus gem (viaThe Longevity Paradox) where he tells us:“AsHippocrates famously and wisely said,‘Alldisease begins in the gut.’ The good news is that all disease can be stopped there as well.”
That’s Today’s +1.
