Are you confused and frustrated about the real truth in health science today?
If so, you’re far from alone. It seems every day a new article or sound bite is published contradicting what came before.
Are eggs good for you, or aren’t they? What about gluten or fat or any of the other dietary angels and demons we hear about every day? What does the science really say? Does detox work or is it just a term used by clever marketers to sell products? Is gut balance REALLY connected to the health of your heart, brain, waistline, and more?
We have been given conflicting information on topics like these for decades. As the years pass, the pendulum swings back and forth so much and so often we’re left not knowing what to believe. And our frustration and dismay leads to real health consequences.
Some may simply give up on achieving optimal weight and health in the face of obviously contradictory information. Others, in a desperate attempt to get the root of their health and weight problems once and for all, may actually take the exact WRONG steps — eat the wrong foods, exercise in inefficient or even harmful ways, or rely on unvalidated or risky medications, diets, invasive procedures or dietary supplements.
Dr. Mullin is committed to reversing the trend toward “dumbing down” the science or presenting it in a less than authentic way.
The fact is there are many things we DO know as scientific fact about weight and optimizing the human condition. There’s also A LOT we still have left to learn. Medical researchers are hard at work every day attempting to tease out the underlying mechanisms behind illness and overweight, looking for elegant and efficient methods to solve these problems.
In his medical practice, books, products, and speaking engagements, Dr. Mullin focuses only on validated medical research as the foundation for his work. As a medical researcher himself, Dr. Mullin regularly conducts studies and publishes papers in nutrition and digestive heath journals. He constantly digs through new research and old, seeking the truth about why the human body functions the way it does and how we can help it heal.
As a digestive health expert, Dr. Mullin takes a particular interest in the connections between gut health and the health of other systems in the body. He is especially excited about investigating and contributing to the growing body of research that shows the subtle and elegant relationships between the health and diversity of the gut microbiome (what he calls the “inner garden of life”), weight, and health.
Because Dr. Mullin is committed to science, you can rely on him for the truth.
You will not find “dumbed down” or one-dimensional junk science here. Instead, what you will discover is the complex, nuanced world of real medical knowledge and what it tells us (and does not tell us) about our health and our lives.
See the sidebar for Dr. Mullin’s recent science posts, and make sure you check out his new book The Gut Balance Revolution where he teases apart the intricate relationship between gut microbiome biodiversity, weight, and health, and provides a step-by-step program for rebalancing your gut flora, achieving optimal weight, and getting healthy for life.
