Best Foods To Eat On Leaky Gut Diet
Greetings. It's New Zealand naturopath EricBakker, author of Candida Crusher and formulator of the Canxida range of dietary supplements.Thanks for checking out the tutorial today. I've got a request from a person on YouTube calledPro Chess Player. I'm not quite sure if this is a man or a lady. The person is called ProChess Player and Pro Chess Player has posed a question to me, quot;Eric, can you talk aboutfoods to eat with leaky gut syndromeé What are the best foods to eat with leaky gutéAnd also how does a leaky gut diet differ from a Candida dietéquot;Let's talk about that now. Most people with Candida have got leaky gut syndrome. I'm notgoing to go into a great deal on this tutorial
about what leaky gut is because you can seethat on some of my other tutorials, but leaky gut is basically a term we use for intestinalpermeability. It's when the small intestine becomes more permeable, particularly to differentkinds of proteins in our diet and they can affect the immune system on the other sidein particularly systemically. So these things don't necessarily follow the normal pathwayof digestion and absorption. They bypass that and they can seriously affect the immune function.Lots of people in the western world have got leaky gut. Before we go into foods to eatfor leaky gut, first let's say what you shouldn't really eat or drink with leaky gut. The topof the tree, in my opinion, is alcohol. Alcohol
really affects leaky gut. There is no wayaround this. Cutting out all forms of alcohol for several months is a clever move if youwant to heal the lining of the gut. All kind of pharmaceutical medications, especiallyantibiotics, but also antiinflammatories or any anti kind of drug is going to createa situation particularly long term where you get serious intestinal permeability. Pharmaceuticalmedications, alcohol, also takeaway food, processed food, junk food; stress also helpsto bring leaky gut to the foreground. All kind of chemicals in our diet, fluoride inwater, chlorine, heavy metals that come through different ways into our diet, these are allways we can get leaky gut and exacerbate it
if we have got it.Good foods to eat with leaky gut are foods that really allow the healing of the liningof the gut. So you've got this membrane inside the small valve called the brush border. It'sbasically a mucous rich membrane that allows beneficial bacteria to grow in there and effectivelyseals off the junctions between the cells to stop the gut from becoming permeable. Soit's all about building the lining of the gut. That's what we want to do. Think aboutfoods that are going to really achieve this. I've got a couple lists here of foods I'vewritten down. Besides, of course, the obvious fermented and cultured foods like kefir, yogurt,sauerkraut, kimchi, and there are various
other ones you can consume that are goingto really do this. They're going to really benefit leaky gut. A big caution here. Ifyou're not used to eating these kind of foods, please go slowly into these cultured and fermentedfoods. Also, the foods I'm going to read out now go easy on them.Fructooligosaccharides and galactooligosaccharide foods. Prebiotic rich foods really encouragethe gut to heal. Jerusalem artichokes, yacon tubers, burdock roots, chicory roots, dandelionroots, garlic, onions, leeks, asparagus, globe artichokes. That's the FOS foods. Now theGOS foods. Legumes, brassicas, fresh beans, beetroots, rice sourdough, if you can tolerateit, sunflower seeds, pumpkins seeds, and linseed
sunflower arine mix, which is my favorite.Here are some good vegetables for you to eat with leaky gut. Purple carrots, dark carrotsare quite good because they're high in polyphenols. Polyphenols are nutritional substances thatreally help to heal various parts of the body, especially the gut. Red cabbage, spinach,red onions, broccoli, red lettuce, black rice or red rice, whole grain sourdough rye bread,of course, and black olives. Notice how I mention black or darké Notice also how I mentioncarrotsé Carrots aren't necessarily bad for people with Candida. Unless they've got aserious yeast infection, they should not have to avoid carrots. Corn is different, however.Corn and pumpkin and squash. You need to be
Natural Remedies for Hypothyroidism and Hashimotos Disease
Hey, guys. Axe here, of FunctionalMedicine and founder of DrAxe . Today I'm going to share with you the three steps youneed to follow to overcome hypothyroidism and Hashimoto's disease, and I'll go throughthe top diet, supplements, as well as natural treatments to do so. So the first thing you've got to do, we'vegot to know what causes hypothyroidism or Hashimoto's disease. And to be honest, 90%of hypothyroidism is an autoimmune form of Hashimoto's disease. That's where your bodyis autoimmune. It is attacking itself, which is causing issues with the thyroid.
Hippocrates is famous for saying, quot;All diseasebegins in the gut.quot; And so I believe if you have a thyroid problem, a big part of thatis starting in your gut, and it can be caused by a condition called leaky gut. So, if you'regoing to fix your thyroid, you've first got to fix and heal leaky gut. We're going todo that, again, with diet, supplements, and then removing toxins from your body. So let me talk about diet and why this isso important. When you have leaky gut, what can happen is the holes in your intestinesbecome larger, and particles like gluten can get through. This is why a lot of people withthyroid issues will notice, if they go on
a glutenfree diet, they will notice immediateresults with their thyroid. So diet wise, the first thing you've got to do is removethose things that are causing inflammation of your gut and the things that are causingmore autoimmune responses within your body. So I recommend going glutenfree and overallgrain free for a period of time, for a total of 90 days, and glutenfree just long termperiod. But gluten is one of the biggest culprits. So again, if you've got hypothyroidism orHashimoto's disease, go glutenfree to start is so important. Also, look for other foodsthat can act like gluten in your body or that cause gut inflammation. Regular grains areone of them, especially if they're not sprouted
or fermented, like ancient grains were. Thenalso, just other foods. Fast foods, too much sugar. Excess sugar in your diet will undoubtedlycause inflammation of the gut, which then, in turn, will cause some of those thyroidissues. The best diet to follow if you have hypothyroidismor Hashimoto's disease is a diet that's high in vegetables, fruits, as well as things likebone broth and organic meats. These are the things that are easiest for your body to digest.That's what you want to focus on, is letting your system rest and doing things that areeasy on your gut and your entire body, if you want to heal the thyroid.
So the type of diet you should be trying tofollow is something very similar to what's called the GAPS diet. Again, it's an ancientdiet that's full of fruits, vegetables, organic meats. So doing things like bone broth soupis fantastic, as well as also eating some probiotic rich foods, like a yogurt that'sbeen fermented for 24 to 29 hours, as well as ancient, fermented dairy products likekefir. Those probiotic rich foods can really help support the healing of the gut. So again, if you want to know more about ahypothyroidism diet, what I would do is recommend looking up things like the Leaky Gut Dietand GAPS diet, and those are the sort of diets
you want to follow for thyroid issues. Now, the second step in helping heal and repairyour thyroid is getting specific nutrients and supplements, and there are three mainsupplements you should consider taking. The first one is a supplement that has selenium.Selenium has been shown to help regulate the hormones T3 and T4 in your body. So seleniumis an essential mineral for really supporting thyroid function and for balancing out thyroidhormones. So selenium is the first one you should take. The second supplement is called ashwagandha.Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb that's
Top 7 Foods for Healing Leaky Gut
Hey guys, Axe here, of naturalmedicine. In this tutorial I'm going to share with you the top seven foods for healing leakygut along with the healing leaky gut diet. Leaky gut syndrome is where you get somethingcalled intestinal permeability. That's where certain proteins like gluten start to leakthrough your intestinal wall, get in your blood stream, and then cause systemic bodywide inflammation. It can cause inflammation of your thyroid causing Hashimoto's disease.It can cause inflammation of your large intestine and cause inflammatory bowel disease. It canalso cause inflammation causing food sensitivities and different reactions in your body. By consumingthese seven foods it can help you heal leaky
gut syndrome for good. Let's start off here with the number one food,and that's bone broth. Bone broth has traditionally been made by boiling or cooking the ligamentsof chickens as well as the bones and also bones from beef. What happens is certain aminoacids and minerals come out into the liquid. The most powerful amino acids are prolineand glycine. We know proline is a precursor to collagen. We know when your body stopsproducing collagen over time it's what causes you to get wrinkles and your skin to get loose.It's a similar thing with your digestive tract. We want that tight. We want those tight junctionstight in your gut. We don't want things like
gluten getting through. Proline and glycine,the amino acids in bone broth, help tighten it up and can help repair the damaged gutlining. Drinking bone broth every day is incrediblyhealthy for healing leaky gut syndrome. Also, bone broth contains Lglutamine, another aminoacid that really works as a BandAid for your small intestine and colon and really helpingprotect those areas. Again, bone broth, number one healing food for leaky gut. I recommendeight ounces two times a day. The best thing to do is get a big CrockPot and make realbone broth soup and drink that several times a day.
The second healing food for leaky gut syndromeis kefir or homemade yogurt. We know fermented dairy is the most probiotic rich super foodin the world today. If you can be getting goat's milk kefir or homemade yogurt. Homemadeyogurt should be fermented 24 to 29 hours. We know it contains specific types of probioticssuch as lactobacillus which have been shown to crowd out bad bacteria such as differenttypes of yeast and fungus and really help increase the probiotics in the gut. Listen, most people today have a severe probioticdeficiency. If you're going to heal leaky gut, you have got to restore any probioticdeficiencies. Again, kefir, goat's milk kefir
and yogurt are the best. You can find thoseat your local health food store. The third healing food for leaky gut syndromeare fermented vegetables such as sauerkraut, kimchi, kvass, and coconut kefir as well.Different types of fermented vegetables, especially sauerkraut, are greatly beneficial becauseit contains bacillus subtilis. Bacillus subtilis is a soil based probiotic. It also containslactobacillus plantarum probably in the largest levels. These probiotics in a similar fashioncrowd out bad bacteria. Also, they're at a certain Ph. You know thatreally sour, tart taste when you're tasting sauerkrauté Those are organic acids. Thoseacids really help feed and fuel probiotics
in the gut. It's not just about getting moreprobiotics. It's about creating an environment where probiotics can flourish. Again, gettingsauerkraut and kimchi and fermented vegetables in your diet is a great way to establish thatgood bacteria in the gut. The number four super food for healing leakygut is coconut products, especially coconut oil. Coconut oil has antimicrobial properties.It contains the fatty acids lauric acid, capric acid, and caprylic acid. These are known asmedium chain fats or medium chain triglycerides. They kill off bad bacteria in the gut. Theyare very easy to digest. For that reason, all other oils in your diet should reallybe replaced with coconut oil when it comes
