I recommend health seekers to watch the Interconnected Series of Videos.
The videos were available free-to-view over the last fortnight. They are now only available if you pay for their “whole health package” by going to their official link.
If you are having unresolved heath issues, subscribe to their programme as I am sure their information can help you. Meanwhile if you would like to know in a nutshell, what these 9 episodes said:
The purpose of the videos is to alert us to latest new findings that is causing 90% of the chronic disease in the world today. They said, due to the toxic farming and food production practices and our liking for junk food, we are decimating the good bacteria in the gut. This is compromising our immune systems. Weird, unheard of diseases are on the rise. So we have to counter this by changing our diet. The videos feature advice from health experts, and testimonials from patients who followed the new regime. These patients were able to reverse their chronic conditions that their previous doctors had been unable help.
I am 100% in support of this knowledge being made widely known.
The series says, Obesity, Cancer, Autism, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, (among others) have all started in the gut. We probably didn’t know this; and we have subsequently failed to take action over our own gut health, unaware of the dangers to the immune system. A large number of health professionals also do not know enough about the consequences of impaired gut health so they are not passing the crucial information to us as patients.
The experts talk about the very important gut microbiome, what it is, and how to balance it, how to be aware of toxins and what to do to remove them, and what to eat to keep you healthy. Remember this: You can’t trick the microbiome to accept fake food.
Its all about what we put in our gut
The food list below has to be adjusted depending on what works for you. Also, if you are not a meat eater then continue with your chosen sources of protein. Read the labels where it comes from. And if you are a Celiac, continue to eat what you have been prescribed. No need to eat gluten-free bread unless you are a diagnosed Celiac. If you have food sensitivites, you may have to eliminate grains wheat and dairy. (or be careful about its source) If you can eat them, they will provide useful daily dose of fibre. If you can’t eat them, then it is crucial to up the quantity of fibrous fruit and vegs. Dairy, milk and cheeses without lactose might be a good alternative without having to completely eliminate. Which leaves:
- Meat, chicken, eggs or fish that is 100% organic and antibiotic free
- Certain nuts and seeds
- 6-8 servings per day of different coloured fibrous fruit and veges
- Complex carbohydrates, like brown rice, and ancient grains (whatever suits you.)
- 1 serving a day of fermented foods like Kimchi, sauerkraut or other pickled veges
- Probiotic fermented yoghurt such as Kefir
- Almond milk
- Take Prebiotics / and Probiotic supplements daily
In order to give more background to my readers, I did further research at different health websites, i.e. https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/19-best-prebiotic-foods#section1
- Probiotics: These are live bacteria found in certain foods or supplements. They can provide numerous health benefits.
- Prebiotics: These substances come from types of carbs (mostly fiber) that humans can’t digest. The beneficial bacteria in your gut eat this fiber.
Probiotics may reduce the number of calories you absorb from food. They also affect hormones and proteins related to appetite and fat storage. They may also reduce inflammation, which can drive obesity. Not all probiotics help with weight loss, and some of them may even cause weight gain. The effects depend on the probiotic strain, and may also vary between individuals.
From the excerpts at HealthLine website, they said to choose the right probiotic strain depending on what you want to achieve, i.e. they suggest not to use the Lactobacillus acidophilus type yoghurt if you are trying to lose weight, and that the Lactobacillus gasseri strain was the most helpful aid for weight loss.

Also MD Gundry videos, Prebio-Thrive prebiotic supplements are looking very hopeful if you are struggling with weight loss. Here are his tips about prebiotic foods to look for: https://gundrymd.com/plant-paradox-shopping-list/
Getting back to the Interconnected series I noted these other suggestions:
- introduce occasional intermittent fasting
- engage in meditation or other calming practices, due to its favourable effect on the health of the gut.
- no need to eat gluten-free bread unless you are a celiac
- For food sensitivities, try Low Fodmap foods (* I have written an article recently about Fodmaps, and have tried it and can attest that it works for me)
The series makes clear to find a balance in your own quest, as everyone has a unique set of circumstances and unique microbiome. So its never a one size fits all solution.
It’s a trial and error, mix and match til you find what works for you as a unique individual.
These videos are good place to start in your quest for good health and long life.
