4) 4-DVD set The Science of Dr. Perlmutter’s Whole Life Plan
- The New Science of Exercise
New research reveals that physical exercise is profoundly beneficial for health for reasons that have only just come to light. Exercise actually changes the expression of our DNA, enhancing the production of a specific chemical, BDNF, that leads to increased growth of new brain cells. This is revolutionary and empowering information. Moreover, exercise is associated with increased diversity of the microbiome, the 100 trillion organisms living in the gut. Increased diversity is associated with improved health by helping reduce weight, balancing blood sugar, and reducing inflammation. Dr. Perlmutter presents the science supporting this new and exciting way of looking at exercise.
- Why GMO Matters
So much confusion surrounds GMO foods. While it is trendy to believe that choosing non-GMO foods is worthwhile, Dr. Perlmutter squarely makes the case for this decision, based on new science. Dr. Perlmutter describes how GMO seeds are generally produced to create plants that are resistant to the weed killer, glyphosate, and this is where the problem exists. Many GMO plants, like corn and soy, contain residues of this chemical which has now been shown to damage the gut bacteria. Further, the World Health Organization now has characterized glyphosate as a “probable human carcinogen.”
- Be Good to Your Microbiome
In this DVD, Dr. Perlmutter explores the important health benefits of a healthy microbiome (gut bacteria) and reveals how various lifestyle choices like food selections and medications are potential health threats because of their microbiome damaging effects. Dr. Perlmutter then presents information focused on building and maintaining a healthy gut microbiome, paving the way for health and disease resistance.
- The Gut-Brain Connection
In this compelling DVD, Dr. Perlmutter explores the most up to date research that demonstrates the intimate connection between gut activity and brain health and function. The DVD explores how the products of bacterial metabolism in the gut affect the brain in terms of mood as well as disease resistance. This is powerful information that is presented in a highly user-friendly format.
5) Two audio CD set
- Alzheimer’s Prevention Strategies
Our most respected research institutions have now revealed that Alzheimer’s disease, now affecting more than 5.4 million Americans, is largely preventable. Lifestyle choices, including diet and exercise, are critically important for maintaining the health and disease resistance of the brain. In this CD, Dr. Perlmutter empowers the listener with the latest information, empowering them with meaningful choices to pave the way for brain health.
- Magnesium Fundamental for Health
Magnesium has emerged as one of the most important micronutrients in human physiology. Because magnesium is critical for the function of more than 300 enzymes, deficiency of this mineral can have wide-ranging health consequences including heart rhythm disturbances, seizures, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, fatigue, and diabetes. Dr. Perlmutter reveals that more than half of all Americans are deficient in magnesium and provides a comprehensive overview of this important nutrient as well as sources of natural magnesium.
6) Two Information Cards
- Medications That May Threaten the Microbiome
Now that we understand the fundamental importance of a healthy microbiome in terms of health and disease resistance, it’s important to recognize the threat to the microbiome posed by commonly used medications like antibiotics, acid-blocking drugs and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. This handy comprehensive guide provides a list of common drugs in these categories.
- Medications That May Deplete Magnesium
Magnesium is critical for health, and building on the program’s focus on the importance of magnesium, as well as the material presented in the audio CD, this handy card provides a comprehensive list of commonly used drugs that may reduce magnesium levels. The list includes medications for blood pressure, antacids, antibiotics, hormones, and others.
7) Recipe Booklet
With so much emphasis on the importance of dietary choices in the program, Dr. Perlmutter provides 21 delicious, easy to prepare recipes, many of which are featured during the broadcast. These are recipes that are low in sugar, high in fiber, with many of them enhanced with healthy fat. All recipes are accompanied by nutritional facts information revealing the content of protein, carbohydrates and fat.
