The Ultimate Gut Reboot Podcast

Tim JacksonYou may remember Tim Jackson (pictured left) from the very popular article that appeared here a few weeks ago entitled Broken Gut to Big Butt: How A Busted Digestive System Can Make You Hormonally Fat.

Tim also appears as a guest in Dr. Jack Kruse’s “Optimal Reset” program.

Dr. Tim Jackson received his undergraduate degree in Health science and chemistry from Wake Forest University in 2003. He completed his Doctorate in Physical Therapy(DPT) from the Medical University of SC in 2009.

Realizing that manual therapy and orthopedic care helped only some of his patients, he began studying functional and environmental medicine, as well as digestive health, in an effort to help others achieve wellness.

Dr. Tim is educated in nutritional biochemistry, digestive health and its systemic effects, as well as functional endocrinology. He recently completed the Spine portion of the Active Release Technique methodology, a system that addresses musculoskeletal trigger points and helps to expedite the healing process. Currently, Dr. Tim is working on his Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist certification. He also trained with Dr. Kendal Stewart, M.D. to learn the far-reaching implications of methylation deficits and their role in Neuro-immune syndromes. He combines his background in integrative medicine with the cutting-edge protocols developed by Dr. Stewart to optimize patient outcomes.

Tim also offers long-distance consultations to help guide you through the process of addressing methylation. Unfortunately, this process requires much more than simply taking a L-5-methylfolate supplement, and you must address gut/digestive health, control inflammation, and address other SNP’s (single nucleotide polymorphisms).

During our discussion, you’ll discover:

-Why your mother and the health of her umbilical cord affects you for life…

-Why digestive issues are becoming more and more common today…

-The #1 best test to get to find out if you have a broken gut…

-How high cortisol can damage your gut…

-The best way to clean your liver…

-How to do genetic testing and find out if you have polymorphisms that affect your gut…

-Why you may not be making enough stomach acid, even if you’re less than 35 years old…

-Why you may not want to be taking probiotics every day…

-How bacteria can move from your large intestine into your small intestine, and what you can do about it…

-Why biofilm prevents you from obtaining optimal digestion…

-And much more!
