No Such Thing as Inflammatory Foods

No Such Thing as Inflammatory Foods


Hi, this Dr. Nemechek of The Nemechek Protocol™ in Buckeye, Arizona. I want to talk to you about this idea of
inflammatory foods, alright. The vast majority of things that they
speak of as foods being inflammatory, is really kind of a confusion, and is not true. The food’s themselves are not, per se,
inflammatory. The problem is with people with bacterial overgrowth alright, and
leaky gut or bacterial translocation, those bacteria – my old “fish” living where
the “birds” are scenario alright. When you end up with that, those “fish” bacteria
(the bacteria from the colon) love a wide variety of foods, love em! They love
carbs, they love gluten, they love tomatoes, and seasonings, and chocolate, and
lettuce, and milk, and, and, and peppers, and all that kind of stuff. Orange juice,
fruit, they can love all that stuff. And when people commonly say “oh I can’t you
know, if I eat nightshades my joints just hurt. You know it’s inflammatory, I’ve
read all about that its inflammatory.” Well when you fix their intestinal overgrowth,
with Xifaxin, the nightshades quit bothering, bothering them. So I had one
gentleman, actually from Pakistan, was quite upset because suddenly he couldn’t
eat his very, very spicy food he’d eaten his whole life and it made him feel sick.
It was all inflammatory, you know. We treated him with the Rifaximin, or
Xifaxin antibiotic, and within a couple weeks he could eat his foods and they
weren’t inflammatory. Alright? So, one of the big things for
these “inflammatory” foods, is just because people have bacterial overgrowth, and
when you fix that it goes away. They can eat the foods, they don’t bother em. You know, oh suddenly tomatoes and spices don’t bother them, or the wine doesn’t bother you.
You know, usually within about two weeks. Now, there’s another aspect in the
intestinal tract that causes things to be inflammatory,
and that is your autonomics. Specifically your vagus nerve which
carries all the parasympathetic signaling from the brain and completely
controls inflammation. Your vagus nerve tightly regulates the area immediately
around the small intestine. So if you imagine you have your small intestine
here, this tube, right on the outside immediately, just one cell away from the
inside okay, is eighty percent of all of your white blood cells are right there.
And if you get overgrowth and leakage, that’s why this stuff leaks in there and
stimulates the immune system. But even after that, after you take Rifaximin, the leaky gut repairs itself in about two weeks, you can still be left with
some trouble kind of regulating inflammation, because the vagus nerve is
damaged. From that, your leaky gut inflammation, the vagus nerve can get
damaged from the omega 6 oils, alright. Lack of omega-3s, all that can damage your vagus nerve and that can take a
while to heal. But so now, things like gluten will, after leaky gut is healed,
gluten still gets into that space immediately around the small intestine,
in everybody and if you if your vagus nerve doesn’t work right that’s why
gluten makes you feel inflammatory. It’s not because you have gluten. It’s because
your parasympathetics are damaged right? It’s just like nightshades are not
inflammatory, it’s just because you got SIBO and leaky gut, and they’re allowed
to leak in and abnormally stimulate the white blood cells. Once you fix the
leaky gut the nightshades don’t bother you. Once you fix your vagus nerve and
your parasympathetics alright, things like gluten and some
foods don’t bother you. Okay? So, in the vast, vast, vast, vast, vast, VAST majority
of people who are claimed to have inflammation from food, it’s not because
of the food per se, it’s all some other thing that can be fixed.
You can fix leaky gut, and you can repair your vagus nerve alright?
The Nemechek Protocol™ goes a long way for repairing the vagus
nerve even without a vagus nerve stimulator. Alright. So don’t don’t think
you have to have that to fix that, so you can go a long way with that. So, my point
is once you get started, these foods that you’ve kind of been trained to be like “ah!”
fearful of or whatnot, go ahead and start adding some of those back in. You
know life’s nice when you have a variety of food and you got different nutrients
and things like that alright. Go ahead and add that stuff back in. So, hope
that’s helpful, this is Dr. Nemechek from The Nemechek Protocol™ in Bukeye, Arizona. Everybody have a great day bye.
