Veterinarian Dr. Dennis Thomas Tells You on Gab with the Gurus How Acupuncture, Chinese Herbs & Good Nutrition Help Your Pets
Although centuries ago, dogs weren’t considered man’s best friend, in recent times, pets have become wildly popular.
In the United States alone, people own some 70 to 80 million dogs and 74 to 96 million cats, which means 37 to 47 percent of U.S. households have a dog, and 30 to 37% own a cat, according to the American Pet Products Association.
You pet owners have other reasons to rejoice. Appreciating and playing with your canine or feline friend improves your health.
In fact, touching or stroking your furry friends could help reduce your stress (even positively affecting your cortisol, heart rate and blood pressure), improve your mental and physical health, reduce your aggression, and activate the much-touted hormone oxytocin, according to a recent review of research.

Dr. Perlmutter has come to recognition for blowing the lid off a topic that’s been buried in medical literature for far too long — carbs are destroying your brain.
But he’s not talking about just unhealthy carbs. Even so-called healthy carbs such as whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more.
Dr. Perlmutter will tell Gab with the Gurus listeners what happens when your brain encounters common ingredients in your daily bread and fruit bowls, why your brain thrives on fat and cholesterol, and how you can spur the growth of new brain cells at any age.
Of course, you can get lots more information in Dr. Perlmutter’s book, Grain Brain, but on our Gab with the Gurus Show, he will give you hope about how you can take control of our “smart genes” through specific dietary choices and lifestyle habits, demonstrating how to remedy our most feared maladies without drugs.
David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, ABIHM is a Board-Certified Neurologist and Fellow of the American College of Nutrition. He received his M.D. degree from the University of Miami School of Medicine where he was awarded the Leonard G. Rowntree Research Award for best research by a medical student. After completing residency training in Neurology, also at the University of Miami, Dr. Perlmutter entered private practice in Naples, Florida.

How when Roberta simply changed her diet by quitting sugar and those quickie carbs (processed carbohydrates that are metabolized quickly), she personally overcame 10 years of illness during which she saw dozens of doctors, endured countless medical tests, took thousands of pills and even underwent electric shock therapy!
How when I finally let go of my sugar addiction — very reluctantly, though — presto, ALL 44 of my ailments (including crippling headaches, difficulty concentrating, awful PMS, excessive fatigue, cold hands and feet, embarrassing mood swings, scary heart palpitations, etc.) vanished! Wow!
How most people are consuming too many sweets whether they know it or not, especially if they eat foods in boxes, cans or jars. That sugar or quickie-carb habit can be deadly, leading to heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and an early death.
On our Gab with the Gurus Show, you’ll also find out Secrets to Go Mostly Sugar-Free. While I share some tactics in my book, Beyond Sugar Shock, Roberta and I go into more depth on this program, and we give you the personal touch, of course, because you get to listen to us chatting.
Among the Secrets to Go Mostly Sugar-Free, you’ll discover:
How it’s okay to be imperfect. In fact, not expecting that you’ll do everything “right,” frees you up to succeed marvelously.
How most people around the world — whether they know it or not — are eating far too much sugar (roughly 170 to more than 200 pounds per year) and/or quickie carbs (possibly as high as 200 pounds), thereby paving the way to diseases galore.
How you can take your slips and turn them into successes. You’ll realize that your so-called “failures” lead you to lasting success.
How you want to change your relationship with those persistent cravings. (We’ll talk about how to embrace them — yes! — and how they can become major allies.
How to take one of your absolute worst habits — something almost all of us do — and turn it into one of your biggest foolproof tools to bid your sugar addiction farewell.
How some people are wise to let a little sugar (some tastes here and there) into their lives. (You’ll discover that I’ve modified my stance over the years.)
How, for many people, a few tastes can turn into a binge and they’re better off to say sayonara to processed sweets.
How before I quit sugar, first I binged on candies for three weeks after my doctor’s orders to “Quit sugar or die young.”
How it’s imperative that you keep track. Roberta discusses how it’s very important to keep a symptom diary. (That way, you’ll know what happens when you eat sweets. You want to get a clear message about how too much sugar leads to symptoms.)
How you need to be prepared, wherever you go.
How you can have fun replacing those sugary treats that you used to adore.
How it’s vital to get support and learn about success stories.
