[00:01] REENA JADHAV: Hi everyone it’s Reena Jadhav with health bootcamps and the live longer podcast here with Dr. Peter Osborne on the book master class no grain no pain. And today’s chapter is all about the gut. It is chapter title called pain caused by an imbalance in the gut and we’re going to talk about leaky gut as well. Dr. Osborne tells us a little bit about how is the grain consumption leading to leaky gut.
[00:26] DR. PETER OSBORNE: Interestingly enough Harvard researcher who is at Harvard now Lucia Fasano I don’t take the credit for researching this but he identified that gluten actually causes a disruption in a protein called zainaline and so there’s this little protein inside your gut called zainaline that gluten can break apart. And think of it like this if your guts if you’re individual gut cells they stuck next to each other and they have these little proteins inside that anchor them together almost like the Lego blocks the way you snap them together right. Well, gluten gets in there penetrated and it breaks that. So what happens is we get these little microscopic force it opens up in between the gut cells that are often at times referred to medically as intestinal hyperpermeability. So if you are a nerd and you want to go look that up if you type that search and you’ll find a lot of technical information. But the other term is leaky gut right leaky gut means that the contents of the gut lining are quarantined away from the bloodstream think of your goddess as is part of your insides but it’s not part of your blood. And that from to your mouth to your anus is it’s a quarantine zone with those tight cells keeping everything out of your bloodstream. So if they break open, now the ingredients of your gut can leach into the highly gut wall there’s this massive quantity of immune cells called gastro associated lymphoid tissue and this tissue is designed to basically it’s the stopgap. If the gut is leaking this immune system behind your gut wall tries to stop the damage from spilling over into your bloodstream but what happens is some of these proteins in our food that we eat and then the bacteria that live inside of our GI tract, some of those proteins have well they’re similar in size and structure and in shape to our tissues. So for example, there’s a bacterial endotoxin secreted by a type of bacteria called Pseudomonas that can leak in and if our immune system sees it, it will attack it. Unfortunately, this bacterial endotoxin looks a lot like cartilage so when our immune system starts attacking that pseudomonas then starts to turn around to look at the cartilage and say hey that looks like the bacterial toxin let’s go attack it too and it goes over starts to create chronic joint pain. Through an inflammatory process and that process is called molecular mimicry because the molecule of the toxin right mimics our cartilage so we get molecular mimicry and immune system turns against us that is the autoimmune disease. So leaking gut is one of the precursors to the development of autoimmune disease and that’s what this chapter is all about.
[03:05] REENA JADHAV: And that me you know I had autoimmune symptoms undiagnosed nothing on the test but all kinds of symptoms and at the end of the day it really was the gut… What test do you recommend for someone who is curious to figure out if they have a leaky gut I say this because every conventional doctor that I that I saw and consulted with including two different GI said that they didn’t understand the concept of leaky gut they certainly didn’t believe it was just all hocus pocus. So sometimes if you go to a conventional medical doctor they’re not going even to have a test for you to do but functional medicine does help test. So talk a little bit about what test do you recommend.
[03:43] DR. PETER OSBORNE: There are several different types. You can do antibody testing against zainaline and glutenin these are different proteins that help seal the tight junctions together in the gut wall. But sometimes those are not the most accurate way. The problem with leaky gut is we know it exists we’ve identified it, we have researched it but it’s like this. Leaky gut is not caused by the same things every time it’s just like if we lined a thousand people up and they all had leaky gut; they all might have it for different reasons so we’ve run one type of lab tests where we are looking for one of those reasons for that person we may not find it. So again that’s in that a lot of GI doctors won’t run any tests not because leaky gut doesn’t exist but because one they don’t read the literature because if they read the medical literature they would know it absolutely exist beyond a shadow of a doubt. But two because of the problem with definitive testing if I run this test and its negative now what now you really don’t have leaky gut or do you have leaky gut. So they’re different kinds of sugar absorption test that we can run, there protein antibody test that we can run but ultimately we want to know really in that part of what I talk about in the book is the eleven different causes of leaky gut so to me it’s more important that a person understands these are the things that cause leaky gut. So no matter who you are if you’re controlling these eleven factors then you don’t have to worry so much about the prolonged leaky gut creating the problem and you can actually seal the gut lining and heal.
[05:09] REENA JADHAV: And what are these eleven causes of leaky gut.
[05:12] DR. PETER OSBORNE: Well one of them is antibiotics right. So you think about the average person that goes to the buffet and they’re eating meat that’s loaded with antibiotics they’re getting antibiotics without taking antibiotics. Chlorine in the drinking water if you don’t filter your drinking water is a form of antibiotics so, antibiotics is one big cause. We have plastics that the chemical compounds in plastic have been shown to cause leaky gut. We have gluten. Gluten is a known factor and a known causes of protein again I told you this earlier this was discovered at Harvard but it causes leaky gut. Interestingly enough hot beverages can cause leaky gut that’s right. Beverages with hot high temperatures causing a temporary break down of the gastrointestinal lining. Aggressive exercise I’m not talking about like a high-intensity interval exercise I’m talking about the kind where you feel like you want to puke. You see this with football players doing two days and things of that nature where the exercise so aggressively but aggressive exercise causes leaky gut. So those are some of the things that cause leaky gut your audience can start taking action on right away.
[06:23] REENA JADHAV: That sounds great alright well we are now off to our next chapter so make sure you tune in. It’s pain caused by grain obesity. We’re going to talk about obesity and weight loss issues so make sure you tune in.
