On this episode of Best Seller TV, author Dr. Kourosh Maddahi, sits down with host Taryn Winter Brill to discuss his book The Toxic Overload: The Truth About Your Body’s Natural Defenses and How to Experience Whole Body Health. Dr. Maddahi had the impetus of writing this, his third book, when COVID began. He had amassed considerable research and decided to put pen to paper. The genesis of the book goes back to his keen interest on how the body responds to diseases and infections, to answer the question of how has humanity survived for thousands of years without modern medicine.
As a practicing dentist for over three decades, he said that dental research has focused heavily on killing bacteria, but there’s a flaw with that theory. He claims that seventy years of research is wrong and, “What we need to do is we need to not kill bacteria but rather neutralize the toxins of bad bacteria.”
The book focuses on rethinking what we know about inflammation, disease, and bacteria. Dr. Maddahi argues that there is no “safe and effective” product in the market right now that prevents the killing of good bacteria. Dr. Maddahi cites thirty years of research that shows a correlation between heart disease, diabetes, kidney problems, and other health problems, and gum health. Whatever happens in your mouth affects the rest of your body, he reasons.
