Awesome. Chris Kresser delivers another great podcast: Chronic Stress, Cortisol Resistance, and Modern Disease.
1. Cortisol resistance is the problem, not high cortisol;
2. Probiotics work, not by changing your gut flora, but because they are “antibacterial [and] antiviral, [and] increas[e] mucus production. They can alter stool and gas formation, which in turn can reduce constipation and diarrhea. They have anti-inflammatory effects;”
3. We should not reject epidemiological studies just as we should not accept all double-blind clinical trials. Seems Chris Kresser is using on better standards of reasoning and induction than some other people do. (Though not perfect.) Now if he would just read David Harriman’s The Logical Leap, he could be even better.
