Today Dr. Jockers is in conversation with Dr. Kan and they’re talking about the Brain-Immune-Gut Axis and its link to chronic disease. Dr Peter Kan is a chiropractic neurologist – and he’s a certified functional medicine practitioner. He’s also one of the sharpest people Dr. Jockers has ever had the pleasure of interviewing, which is high praise indeed!
Dr. Kan is an expert in metabolic health and analyzes the relationship between the Brain-Immune-Gut Axis and how it impacts all of human physiology. In this illuminating interview, Dr. Kan and Dr. Jockers talk about the connection between the brain and the gut — and how the immune system really connects those two.
There’s a discussion about the blood-brain barrier and how that compares to the blood-gut barrier. If you’re out there and you’re dealing with chronic gut issues, it may actually be a brain issue that you need to look at. There is a myriad of strategies in this episode that will help you support your brain and, in turn, balance your immune system. Please join us!
“We have to learn to look beyond just the area of complaint. And make as I say, the BIG connection. And when I say BIG, you know, to me, it’s also the acronym called: Brain Immune Gut axis”
-Dr. Peter Kan

Are your joints painful? Do you suffer from daily discomfort? As it stands today, chronic pain affects more Americans than DIABETES, HEART DISEASE, and CANCER combined.
In fact, chronic pain is THE NUMBER ONE reason Americans access the Healthcare system today. However, many people believe their only option for pain relief is found in drugstore options such as Ibuprofen, Advil, and Tylenol (to name a few). Tragically, most people are unaware that these pain meds do more HARM than good. Common side effects include Headaches, Liver and Kidney issues, High Blood Pressure, and in rare cases – even death. Not to mention, they are just masking your pain… Giving you temporary relief…
While this may sound all doom and gloom, I do have good news… There is an all-natural solution that addresses the root cause of your discomfort… A REAL solution that allows you to get back to being YOU!
And that solution is called Curcumin Gold made by my friends at Purality Health. Curcumin Gold contains Turmeric Curcumin Extract, Vegan Omega-3s, & Ginger Oil. These carefully selected ingredients support healthy joint function and address the root cause of inflammation within your body. Trust me when I say you won’t find anything else on the market quite like this. In fact, my friends over at Purality Health have a patented formula that utilizes something called ‘MICELLE LIPOSOMAL’ technology which delivers the nutrients into your bloodstream – proven to be 800% more efficient!
