In his feature article of Charisma Magazine Online, Dr. Colbert is unveiling the powerful foods to help rejuvenate and revitalize your brain and gut health for the best.

“Few people get enough fiber in their diets,” Colbert writes. “Scarcely any of my patients consistently meet their fiber needs, and a mere 5% of Americans fulfill the requirements for adequate fiber intake. Therefore, it’s common to see patients with low-fiber symptoms such as constipation, inability to lose weight, low energy, hunger soon after eating and craving between meals.”

So, what are some of the best ways to gain enough fiber? According to Colbert, taking psyllium husk powder and drinking plenty of water are a couple of the best actions anyone could take to ensure their fiber intake is being met.

Besides fiber, however, Colbert emphasizes the importance of eating nutritious probiotic and prebiotic foods. He also shares which foods can be substituted due to intolerances.

“…probiotics are also found in fermented food such as kefir, kimchi, kombucha, miso, natto, pickles, sauerkraut, tempeh, traditional buttermilk and yogurt,” Colbert writes. “If lactose intolerance is a concern, or you are sensitive to dairy, opt for coconut kefir or coconut yogurt, or goat or sheep yogurt or kefir.”

When it comes to prebiotics, Colbert recommends eating fruits, whole grains, legumes and vegetables.

In his interview with Charisma Magazine Online, Colbert also says that for good gut health, following the keto and Mediterranean diets is key for living a vibrant and healthy life, along with intermittent fasting.

“When you’re fasting, you’re cleaning your brain out on the cellular level, similar to a self-cleaning oven,” Colbert says. “Intermittent fasting does a similar process in our brain and in other words helps restore brain cells as well as our memory by removing cellular waste and then cleaning out the mitochondria so they can boost energy. So, brain speed increases, memory improves.”

Not only does eating the right foods and sticking to a lifestyle of intermittent fasting have immediate health benefits, but Colbert uses fasting as a tool to help his patients fight dementia.

“The key thing is intermittent fasting,” Colbert says. “So what I do is I take them off the dementogens that literally trigger dementia.”

Colbert says that the practice of this intermittent fasting for 16 hours a day, four to five days a week with the exception of coffee and tea with muk fruit has helped his patients’ brains start to improve from the slippery slope of dementia.

Above all, recognizing the signs of deterioration early on is helpful so that the proper lifestyle changes can be put in place. However, before ever reaching this spot, implementing good, wholesome diet and routine changes is key to a long and fruitful life.
