Highlights from today's episode include:

Dr. John Lewis

So, when you when you give the body these concentrated polysaccharides that are very, very uncommon, if not completely out of the modern diet. You're essentially giving the cells the things that they need to

 

Dr. John E. Lewis

So, it's kind of like if you have a car, I use this very poor analogy, because I can't think of a better one. But if your car has water in the gas tank, and it's kind of sputtering along, it still runs, but it's sputtering and doesn't really drive that well. You get that water cleared out, and then you give it high test 93 grade gasoline. And now boom, suddenly, your car is running like its brand new again. That's exactly what giving these polysaccharides does to ourselves.

 

Dr. John E. Lewis

as we know as immunology has progressed over the last several decades, we know that the immune system interacts with all of our other major organ systems to really kind of survey what's going on and modulate and regulate inflammation and all these cytokines and growth factors. And so, if our immune system is crapping out on us, then that just involves every other major organ system. And then what happens? Your overall health is compromised.

 

ABOUT DR JOHN LEWIS, PhD:

John E. Lewis, Ph.D. is past full-time and current Voluntary Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and the Founder and President of Dr Lewis Nutrition™  https://www.drlewisnutrition.com.  He is a Diplomate, Faculty Member, and Advisor of the Medical Wellness Association.  He has been the principal investigator of over 30 different studies in his research career.  During that time, he either directly raised or indirectly supported raising over $23 million in grants, gifts, and contracts for research studies and clinical trials and educational programs for medical students.  Much of his research has focused on evaluating the effects of nutrition, dietary supplementation, exercise, and medical devices on various aspects of human health and disease.  He and his colleagues have been continually searching for ways to help people achieve and maintain health through natural treatments that align with our physiology.

In addition to his research, Dr. Lewis has been an invited national and international lecturer and guest speaker at conferences and as a guest on television shows, where he discusses not only the findings of his research, but to provide guidance and recommendations as an expert in the field of health and wellness.  Furthermore, he has over 180 peer-reviewed publications in scientific journals, where his work has first appeared in print, including some of the leading scientific journals, such as AIDS and Behavior, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, American Journal of Public Health, Journal of the International AIDS Society, Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, Nutrition and Cancer: An International Journal, Sports Medicine, Stroke, The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, and The Gerontologist.  He has also mentored many different students, from undergraduates to post-doctoral trainees, in how to conduct clinical research and to apply the principles of health promotion into daily practice.  His seminal publication from the study in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, not only spurred him to leave academics and pursue a science-based business career, but also enabled him to be selected for a widely-acclaimed TEDxMiami talk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOJr0sxmxGI) about how dietary supplementation can improve brain health.
Dr. Lewis also embodies the model of health and wellness by eating a whole-food, plant-based diet for over 25 years, taking certain key dietary supplements, and through a rigorous, daily exercise training program.  John has a passion for educating others about the value of nutrition, exercise, and health, and he will continue to study the application of clinical nutrition for the benefit of mankind.
