What Are The Signs And Symptoms Of Leaky Gut Syndrome
Greetings. Eric Bakker, naturopath from NewZealand, author Candida Crusher. I've got a question here from a guy in the States.I'm not going to mention his name. He wanted to stay anonymous. He's asking me Eric, whatare the signs and symptoms of leaky gut syndromeé The signs and symptoms, there could be a tonof them. I've done a few tutorials on leaky gut, and I did one just before basically on howdo you know that you've got leaky guté What are some of the conditions that are obviouswith ité The most common signs and symptoms of leakygut syndrome are gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, IBS, irritable bowel syndrome.These are very common ones. There are tons
of them. You can get digestive discomfortwith leaky gut. And a common place to get it is anywhere around here where the smallintestine is. Anywhere around this region, it's centrally. The large intestine tendsto be more the perimeter and the small intestine tends to be more central. Anywhere central.This is why people with parasites tend to have more of a sensation around the umbilicalcord because that is really a central part of the small intestine. And parasites, inmy opinion, especially acute parasite infections, tend to favor the small intestine, particularlythe center of it, the ileum. But when you've got leaky gut, you could alsofeel sensations a little bit higher up. And
they can be here sometimes. You could almostthink you've got heartburn. Leaky gut doesn't usually radiate any pain toward the back likea gall bladder pain or pancreatic pain will. It tends to be more frontal. And it can besomething like bloating, gas, or having to undo your waistband after a meal. Generally,you're not going to get pains off to the side as I mentioned because that's generally morecolon or large intestine dysfunction. It will be a central kind of disturbance.For the lesser known complaints with leaky gut can be things like brain fog, itchy skin,sore joints, seasonal allergies, immune dysfunction, insomnia, there can be a whole raft of differentthings that signal leaky gut syndrome. Remember,
what we're doing with leaky gut is we're allowingundigested food particles to enter into the bloodstream or potentially Candida or celldebris or all sorts of rubbish that really should be digested properly and filtered throughthe microvilli. But they're bypassing the microvilli, getting in through the intracellularjunctions, and challenging immune system. When we challenge the immune system, therecould be a myriad of complaints that could be possible. Thyroid dysfunction, autoimmunedisease, diabetes, all sort of conditions can occur as a result long term. Leaky gutis something that you really want to fix up in the early stages rather than let it buildup over a 10, 20, or 30 year period when it
gets seriously bad.Imagine you've got a small amount of rot in a roof of a house. In fact, my house thatI'm living in now, this is the rebuilt section, but old house up the front here. I've gota 100year old cottage. We built this extension on. But when we put a whole new roof overthe lot, we found so much rot in the roof of the old house. It cost me a fortune toget all the new beams replaced. Had that been repaired a long, long time ago, maybe 30,40 or 50 years ago, it would have been quite cheap. But now, it was in the tens of thousandsof dollars to repair that damage. Because the damage just continued on and on. And ifthe damage would have continued on for many
more years, the whole roof would have hadto be replaced, all the timber at a huge cost. Now, your digestive system is like that. Ifyou don't fix something up now when you've got a bit of gas or a bit of bloating or afew headaches or aches or pains, you can imagine what will happen if you leave that undisturbedfor 20, 30 or 40 years. Those are the functional complaints that end up becoming autoimmunediseases and even cancer. Lots of people laugh and joke when they pass gas, they fart, butwhat they don't realize is that this condition if it gets serious and long term, it's goingto be a major problem. And then there is no more laughing. Then there is crying. A stitchin time saves nine.
How to Cure Candida in 6 Steps
Hey, guys. Axe here, of functionalmedicine and founder of DrAxe . Today I'm going to share with you the exact diet, treatmentand supplements you need to take the clear Candida from your body. And this is what Ireally consider to be my SixStep Candida Cure Diet Protocol. And you're going to seeamazing results with this protocol. And let me say this first, what is CandidaéCandida is the overgrowth of yeast and bad bacteria in your body and it can cause somemajor symptoms that you want to get rid of. And so some of the symptoms of Candida caninclude any type of fatigue issue. If you struggle with chronic fatigue or adrenal fatigue,those can be related to Candida.
Any type of leaky gut issue. Leaky gut isintestinal permeability, where proteins like gluten can leak through your gut and causeinflammation of your body. So if you have food sensitivities or if you have digestiveissues like gas and bloating, also if you have any problem related to the thyroid, thosecan be warning signs you have Candida. Also if you get yeast in your body. If younotice, let's say, yeast or whiteness on your tongue or if you ever get chronic yeast infectionsor coming down with the cold and flu often, those can be warning signs that you have Candida.And, of course, also with Candida any sort of other digestive issues, like irritablebowel syndrome or chronic diarrhea or constipation
or even acid reflux, those are warning signsthat you might have Candida. And last but not least, is a sluggish metabolism.If you aren't losing weight and burning fat like you know you should be, those are warningsigns you could have Candida, along with actually even bad breath and lack of detoxification.Those are some major warning signs. So here are the six things you need to do to eliminateCandida fast. Number one, you need to stop consuming somuch sugar. Now, I know that's obvious. That's something that I think most of us realizeis that sugar feeds yeast in your body. But again, you have got to get rid of processedsugar, fruit juices, any sort of added sugar
to any sort of product sweetener. Even mostpackaged products and fast foods are also high in sugar. Even things like pasta saucesand crackers, you'd be surprised, but sugar is added to almost everything. So again, eliminate especially the processedsugar out of your diet. As a replacement, I recommend using a little bit of Stevia,which is a nocalorie natural sweetener and then about one to three teaspoons a day ofmanuka honey. Okayé Those are the sweeteners you should be using if you have Candida. Number two. You need to eliminate grains fromyour diet. Whyé Because grains turn into sugar
and they also tend to be more inflammatory.And so again, getting those grains out of your diet, especially wheat products and glutencontaininggrains, that's step number two. Instead, do a lot more vegetables and maybe some starchycarbs. Number three thing you have to do to clearCandida from you system, is support your spleen. Now, this is cuttingedge information thata lot of people don't realize. And this is a practice in Ancient China that is oftenused by acupuncturists today. But they have found that the number one cause of Candidais a weakened spleen. And so if you have spleen issues, and spleen is responsible for digestionof the body, producing red blood cells in
your system. And so the spleen is a very importantorgan. In order to support the spleen, there area couple things you need to do. But really the spleen is supported by starchy foods,especially squash, things like sweet potatoes, butternut squash, and also even doing certaintypes of beans like lentils and mung beans. So again, getting some of those good starchycarbs. And that's really where your sweetness shouldcome from. A little bit of butternut squash, acorn squash, foods like that that has thatmild sweetness. That's the only sweet you should be really getting in your diet. Again,with no processed sugar and, again, very low
Benefits of Collagen Powder and Collagen Protein
Hey, guys, Axe here, of naturalmedicine and founder of DrAxe . In this tutorial, I want to share with you the many benefitsof collagen powder and collagen protein. It's a hot thing on the market today. It's somethingthat I supplement with every day. I have my patients supplement with it, even my own wife,my mom, my family. And I believe that collagen is something that's missing in almost everybody'sdiet today. I'll also show you my favorite brand of collagen.It's the one that I use on a regular basis as well, and talk to you about the six toseven main benefits. And also, how you should be using it and how much you should be gettingon a regular basis. So let's get started here.
Number one, collagen benefits your joints.It benefits joints health. This is my favorite brand. It's called Collagen. It's a greatsupplement here, collagen joint support. But the reason why collagen is so beneficial foryour joints is that collagen contains specifically proline, which is an amino acid that helpswith connective tissue repair. So we need more proline in our diets. Collagen helpsyour body get more proline which is one of the reasons it's so beneficial. Another thing here is collagen supports yourgut health. Collagen has Lglutamine in it. Lglutamine is an amino acid that helps yourgut lining. It's used for fuel for your small
intestine. So collagen is beneficial for yourgut and your gut lining. And it can help support healthy digestive function. The other thing here that's great about collagenis that it contains proline and glycine, which actually can help support healthy skin, hair,and nails. Remember, proline is used for tissues within your body. For a lot of us, we areso deficient in collagen in our diet. Did you know that eating meat products does notcontain collagen, vegetables, fruitsé None of these contain the amino acids proline whichwe have to have to have healthy skin, hair, and nails, and glowing radiant skin.
Also for collagen, it's great for metabolism.One serving or one scoop of collagen has about 20 grams of highly absorbable protein. Weknow protein really supports the body's metabolism and having healthy, lean tissues within thebody including healthy muscular tissue. So again, if we really want to support the body'smetabolism, getting more protein or collagen protein can definitely help with that. Also, collagen powder may support the bodyin detoxification because of the amino acid glycine. Glycine supports healthy liver functionas many medical studies have shown. And then also, we know that collagen may support ahealthy immune system function. The reason
for that being is we know that collagen ispacked with glutamine which supports the gut. Well, 80% of your immune system lives in yourgut. So if you want to support immunity, you've got to support the gut with amino acids suchas glutamine, proline, and glycine. And here's another thing I want to mention.When you're buying a collagen supplement or a collagen protein, you want to look for thetypes of collagen that are found in there. You'll notice that this type which is whythis is the brand that I use. I put it in a smoothie this morning. It has type I, II,III, V, and X. It has five different types of collagen.
If you go out there and just buy collagenfrom another brand, typically, they only contain type I and type III collagen which comes frombeef broth. Now beef broth that can be good for your skin, your hair, your nails, andyour bones. But it doesn't have type II collagen and V and X, which are good for your gut,and your joints, and other areas in your body. But your gut and your joints and other areas.So you want to find a collagen that has multiple types of collagen in it like again, this brand Collagen does. So again, getting more collagen in your dietcan support healthy joints. It can support a healthy inflammation response in the body.Think about how many health issues today are
