Drop Acid!?!!?

When’s the last time you heard a health professional give you THIS advice? 

Probably never.

But my guest says it’s all about dropping acid and “L-U-V” to help you live your healthiest, happiest life.

No, my guest isn’t an original Woodstock hippie.

He’s my good friend Dr. David Perlmutter, neurologist and New York Times bestselling author of Grain Brain and Brain Wash, and a new book called “Drop Acid – The Surprising New Science of Uric Acid―The Key to Losing Weight, Controlling Blood Sugar, and Achieving Extraordinary Health”.  

On this episode he and I discuss his surprising findings about uric acid – a waste product we produce that can harm just about every aspect of our health. We also share what YOU can do about managing your uric acid levels to support long term health. 

On this episode you’ll learn:

  • The biggest fruit myth – and why fructose may be to blame for a variety of serious health issues (6:00)
  • The REAL reason camels have humps – and what it has to do with YOUR health (and potentially your weight) (10:00)
  • The vicious cycle between sleep apnea and weight gain – and how to help break it for good (16:00)
  • The “double-whammy” effect that BEER can have on your health – and the scientific evidence behind the dreaded “beer belly” (18:00)
  • How to measure your uric acid levels at home – and why it’s so important to monitor regularly (20:00)
  • Why “normal” uric acid levels are actually TERRIBLE – and one of the BEST foods for naturally reducing uric acid levels (25:00)
  • What you need to know about “L.U.V. diet” – and how it may dramatically support your health (42:00)
  • Why you can allow yourself to have a glass of red wine in moderation – and why the same rule does NOT apply for white wine (44:00)
