Do you have Leaky Gut or
The 4-Step Plan to Heal Leaky Gut and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS or IBD)
1) REMOVE foods and factors that damage the gut
2) REPLACE with healing foods
3) REPAIR with specific supplements
4) REBALANCE with probiotics
Here’s the protocol that has helped many people see incredible results. Remember, the top foods to remove that cause Leaky Gut are sugar, grains, conventional meat, conventional dairy and GMO foods. The top toxic exposures to eliminate are tap water, pesticides, NSAIDS and antibiotics — but remember to always consult with your physician if he or she has prescribed these for you. (See notice.)
The Leaky Gut Diet and 5 Healing Foods
If you suffer from Leaky Gut Syndrome (or IBS), you’re overdue to consider adopting a Leaky Gut diet. Here are the five foods and supplements to heal your condition.
#1 Bone Broth – broth contains collagen and the amino acids proline and glycine that can help heal your damaged cell walls. I’ve had many of my patients do a bone broth fast for three days to help heal Leaky Gut and cure autoimmune disease.
#2 Raw Cultured Dairy – contains both probiotics and SCFA’s that can help heal the gut. Pastured kefir, yogurt, amasai, butter and raw cheese are some of the best.
#3 Fermented Vegetables – contain organic acids that balance intestinal pH and probiotics to support the gut. Sauerkraut, kimchi, and kvass are excellent sources.
#4 Coconut Products – all coconut products are especially good for your gut. The MCFA’s in coconut are easier to digest than other fats so they work well for Leaky Gut. Also, coconut kefir contains probiotics that support your digestive system.
#5 Sprouted seeds – chia seeds, flaxseeds and hemp seeds that have been sprouted are great sources of fiber that can help support the growth of beneficial bacteria. But if you have severe Leaky Gut, you may need to start out getting your fiber from steamed vegetables and fruit.
Also, consuming foods that have omega-3 fats are beneficial — anti-inflammatory foods like grass-fed beef, lamb and wild-caught fish like salmon.
Top 5 Supplements for Healing Leaky Gut
There are many supplements that support your digestive health, but the most beneficial Leaky Gut supplements are l-glutamine, probiotics, digestive enzymes, aloe vera juice, quercetin, NAG and licorice root.
#1 Probiotics are the most important supplement to take because it helps replenish good bacteria and crowds out bad bacteria. I recommend getting probiotics in both food and supplement form. I see people all the time only follow part of the protocol in healing their Leaky Gut Syndrome by removing the damaging irritants. But the part they often leave out is re-inoculating their gut with beneficial bacteria that will keep bad bacteria at bay.
#2 Digestive enzymes (one or two capsules at the beginning of each meal) ensure that foods are fully digested, decreasing the chance that partially digested foods particles and proteins are damaging your gut wall.
#4 Licorice Root (DGL) is an adaptogenic herb that helps balance cortisol levels and improves acid production in the stomach. DGL supports the body’s natural processes for maintaining the mucosal lining of the stomach and duodenum. This herb is especially beneficial if someone’s Leaky Gut is being caused by emotional stress. Take 500 milligrams twice daily.
#5 Quercetin has also been shown to improve gut barrier function by sealing the gut because it supports creation of tight junction proteins. It also stabilizes mast cells and reduces the release of histamine, which is common in food intolerance. New studies have also shown its effectiveness in healing ulcerative colitis. Take 500 milligrams three times daily with meals. If you can follow the above protocol, you are well on your way to healing your gut for good. -- Source.
