Evan Brand on Glyphosate and Gut Health

Join Evan for his Candida Summit Here!

00:00 So glyphosate, basically what’s happening every year, we’re spraying millions and millions and millions of pounds–Just look it up for yourself, look up glyphosate use charts and you’ll see even from the 1990s, we’re spraying an exponential amount more of glyphosate than we did last year. And this is contaminating the ground water.

00:19 Now, here’s the thing, we could get into the science of how this is disrupting mitochondrial function and leading to chronic fatigue and how it’s replacing certain amino acids and enzymes, but I don’t feel like that’s going to add to the conversation much because the more important thing is you can remove this from your life as much as possible. You can detox this chemical with the use of an infrared sauna. I’ve measured it before and after looking at someone who did nothing else but a sauna and they were able to sweat out glyphosate. I talked with Dr William Shaw, the guy at Great Plains laboratory who created the test to test for chemicals.

00:51 He said, yes, luckily you can get this stuff out of your body. Now, how it influences the gut–parts per billion ppb, parts per billion. I mean you can’t even comprehend how tiny that is has been proven to kill beneficial bacteria in the gut. That being said, you’re being organic as much as possible. Even organic farms have been contaminated. Organic wines. People say, “Oh, Evan, I drink organic wine.”Candida Summit

01:22 Well you’re organi winery or vineyard in California was right next door to the one that was spraying and you’re not growing this stuff in a laboratory or a greenhouse, so the cross contamination is still disrupting your gut, and I’ve seen it on a piece of paper where people have these bacterial overgrowth problems. Now, is it just glyphosate? No. Antibiotic use. There’s talk now about the end of antibiotics and the post antibiotic era. What are we going to do?

01:49 I’m not a medical doctor, so I can’t prescribe antibiotics and all the bacterial infections that I’m seeing the average person has four, five, six bacterial overgrowths. Whether we’re talking h. pylori, which is a bacterial infection, that can lead to stomach cancer. If untreated. You’ve got clostridium bacteria, including c. diff. You’ve got antibiotic resistant strains of c. diff that are occurring in healthcare facilities. It’s killing 39,000 people a year. That’s a statistic that’s from the CDC.

02:21 Antibiotics aren’t working anymore, so you’ve got the combination of influences. You’ve got glyphosate you’ve got antibiotics, you’ve got other pesticides and insecticides, fungicides, you’ve got mitocides. And the last thing I’ll say about infections, these things don’t go away on their own. If you just go and take a probiotic, which is becoming more common, “oh, I’m going to go to the health food store, buy a probiotic.”

02:43 I tried that. It doesn’t work. Sometimes you’ve got to come in and clean things out first and then reset the gut. Here’s the cool thing. Herbs don’t have any resistance, so basically antibiotic resistance–these bugs that cannot be killed by antibiotics, you can kill them with herbs. I’ve had people come to me after they’ve done what’s called triple therapy; used to be called triple therapy, now it’s called quadruple therapy, which is four antibiotics at the same time to treat an h. pylori infection.

03:12 We come in with a few key specific herbal protocols that I’ve created. We do it for six weeks, the h. pylori is gone. I had h. pylori, I lost 20 pounds from h Pylori and parasite infections. My gut was a wreck, so I’m telling you firsthand, if you don’t fix your gut, how can the rest of you be healthy? You can’t.
