159: Grains, gluten, and gut health with Dr. William Davis, MD

Here’s more about Dr. Davis and his background:

William Davis, MD, cardiologist and author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Wheat Belly series of books, Undoctored and, most recently, Super Gut: A Four-Week Plan to Reprogram Your Microbiome, Restore Health and Lose Weight that maps out the damage that has occurred with the modern human microbiome and the specific, actionable steps that can be taken to restore it to maximum advantage.

Dr. Davis champions programs that empower the individual in health in a world in which the healthcare system has failed to provide unbiased information and services. He is co-founder and Chief Medical Officer of Realize Therapeutics Corp. in Lake Bluff, Illinois, a commercial project to fund research and develop therapeutic products applying the new science of the microbiome. He is active in various online activities, including his Wheat Belly Blog (33 million visits) which has now transitioned to his Dr. Davis Infinite Health website. He also broadcasts his message through his Dr. Davis Infinite Health YouTube channel and his Defiant Health Radio podcast. He remains active in social media with, for instance, 400,000 Facebook followers.

Dr. Davis, a graduate of St. Louis University School of Medicine, received advanced training in cardiovascular disease and interventional procedures at Case Western Reserve University Hospitals. He resides in suburban Chicago.

Connect with him on his website and on Instagram.
