Lyle Hurd: Dr. Gilbère, Dr. Gloria Gilbère: Yes, sir. Lyle Hurd: We’ve talked about toxicity. We’ve talked about specific nutritional supplementation to help toxic problems. Tell us a little bit about support of organ systems using supplementation, basically to establish, maintain, but—to some degree—maintain optimal health. Dr. Gloria Gilbère: Reclaim and rejuvenate, right? Lyle Hurd: Reclaim and rejuvenate. Dr. Gloria Gilbère: Well, one of the things that most people don’t understand, as I mentioned in an earlier segment, there’s a lot of support that we can gain from herbals for instance; and ayurvedic medicine and homeopathics for the liver. But people don’t understand—in my opinion—the importance that the road to health is paved with good intestines. If we do not understand the role that our intestinal tract plays in our overall health, then we’ve missed a huge part of the puzzle, and we’re never going to seek—or be able to accomplish total health. Because what happens is, we have now scientifically proved that over 75% of our immune system is based in our gut. So, if we have a toxic load in our intestinal tract—and people think that if they eliminate once a day, well “then I don’t have a toxic intestinal system; so what difference does it make?” But if you look at the anatomy of the body, it is so inter-connected to the lymphatic system and to the liver because it goes right from the large intestine, for instance, through the hepatic portal vein into the liver. So, if you’re overflowing with toxins, you’re not eating enough fiber—and the best example I love to give—and I wish we would have thought of it earlier; we could have done it today— is that when people say, “why do I need fiber? I’m so tired of hearing about fiber.” Well, our ancestors had a tremendous amount of fiber in their diet, compared to our typical American diet—our sad American diet. If you were to consume two platters, turkey size platters—those great, big oval ones we use at Thanksgiving—if you could fill those with raw vegetables, as much as you could get on that platter without it falling over, you’d have to consume two of those a day in order to get the amount of fiber that we’d need to actually Rotor Rooter the intestines to reduce the toxic load. So, there are supplements that we can take that are in a capsule, or in a tablet form, mostly in a tablet, that compress all of these vegetables that are healthy for you, that are organic, all into a tablet that you can take to be able to clean the Rotor Rooter out—to be able to clean out the entire plumbing system, so that it’s not overfilling into the liver, which then overworks into the lymphatic system and into the kidneys. Lyle Hurd: So, what you’re really saying is that we need to be as involved in understanding, planning and executing our system of nutrition, every bit as much as we do our financial— Dr. Gloria Gilbère: Absolutely. And, on the other hand, we just can’t expect to take a pill for everything. If we don’t have guidance and proper nutrition, and we’re not careful about reading labels and about buying good, quality food—people will go out and spend money on a good cup of coffee, like we did this morning before starting this show, but they’ll complain about a little bit more for organic food. And yet, it’s very, very important that they understand the nutritional part, the detoxification—reducing that toxic load—and what they’re exposing themselves to. It’s all part of the puzzle. It’s not one without the other. You don’t just pop a bunch of pills, eat junk food and think you’re going to be healthy. It doesn’t work that way. Lyle Hurd: Thank you, again. Dr. Gloria Gilbère: You’re welcome.
