Best Diet Approach To Cure Leaky Gut Syndrome
Thank for checking out my tutorial. We're goingto do a tutorial today on leaky gut. Basically, the best foods and diet to heal a leaky gut.As you're probably aware, I've done quite a few tutorials on this channel. I've been aroundfor a while now. This is my 27th year of practice. I've been seeing patients an awfully longtime, and I've seen every diet you can imagine. Just look behind me and look at all the bookshelves.I've gotten a few comments on how bent my bookshelves are. I made those when I was astudent, quite a long time ago now. I've got thousands of books. In fact, I've got twobookshelves here, another bookshelf here, I've got three bookshelves out in the back,and I've got boxes out in the back with more
books that my wife won't allow me to havein my room because it looks too crappy, she says, for patients.Let's talk a little bit about books, for example, and diets. There are thousands of diet booksout there. I've seen so many of them. I've been collecting books on health really sincemy 20s. I've read lots of books and I've looked at lots of blog sites on the best kind offoods to eat for leaky gut. I can remember reading about the Paleo diet when people weren'teven around that started thinking the Paleo diet was like the quot;inquot; thing. There is a guycalled Chris Kresser online in America who's very big with this Paleo diet. I read thisbook here, Paleolithic Prescription in 1988,
before it even became a fad. It's all a fadnow. And this book here is pretty cool, Native Nutrition. Again another book from the 80sand 90s. I read all those books when I was in my 20s and started to realize people needto eat common sense, basic foods. It's not rocket science.You probably know this book, The Gaps Diet. Another good book from Liz Lipski, DigestiveWellness. A good Irish friend of mine, John McKenna, books on the stomach. NourishingTraditions from Sally Fallon. The list goes on and on. Everyone has got their own takeon what are the best foods to eat. And everyone who comes out with a book like The Body EcologyDiet, The Specific Carbohydrate Diet, the
blah, blah diet, the blah, blah, blah, blah,blah, blah diet. There are millions of diet books out there.What you've got to try to get through your mind is no diet is going to be specific foryou. So when you've got The Specific Carbohydrate Diet, why don't we call it The Specific JaneDiet, The Specific Joe Diet, or The Specific Mary Dieté In my writing and teaching, I'vealways maintained that there is no such bloody thing as one diet that suits hundreds of people.That's why I would never write a diet book as such myself.If you looked at my Candida Crusher book and also in my psoriasis program that I recentlylaunched, you'll find that I really emphasize
a point that I want you to try to find thefoods that best suit you as a human being, not me or Donna Gates or not Sally Fallonor not Natasha CampbellMcBride, not Chris Kresser, not all these other people. They'renot bloody gurus. They're just people who write about diets, and they give you options.They give you recipes, but you need to experiment with these things. Every person who buys thesebooks or who sees me who's been on a program, they always end up modifying those programsto suit themselves. Many people tell me that when they've gone, for example, on the BodyEcology Diet; they find they can eat certain foods that Donna Gates says that they shouldavoid. And it's the same thing when people
go on any other diet like the Gut and PsychologyDiet. I've had a patient recently who's been onthe SCD Diet, The Specific Carbohydrate Diet, for about four years hard out and not feelingbetter. So I got this guy and his wife and two children, they're all on the diet, tomake modifications. I said, quot;Look, it's time to introduce bread.quot; quot;Oh, no. I can't eatbread. On the SCD diet, it says it's toxic. It's poison.quot; But when I got his wife to eatsome bread, just flat bread, chipati kind of bread, she felt good. In fact, she gaineda bit of weight. She improved. And then after a couple of weeks of observing his wife doingthis, this gentlemen did the same, and he
How to Naturally Heal Low Stomach Acid
Hey, guys, Axe here from draxe . Today,I'm going to talk about natural remedies for low stomach acid. The truth is, your stomachmust be acidic and highly acidic to break down the food you're consuming and for properabsorption. If you have acid reflux of any type, GERD,heartburn, if you have a condition like leaky gut or inflammatory bowel disease, even mostskin issues today, or a lack of certain nutrients, those are all major warning signs that youhave low stomach acid. So you actually want to naturally balance the pH of your stomach. I'm going to talk about the top five stepsand natural remedies you can take and follow
to naturally improve your stomach acid andimprove your digestive function. Again, these are great ways, especially if you have acidreflux, these are great natural cures and remedies. So number one thing you can do to start tobalance this pH in your stomach is take apple cider vinegar right before your meals. I wouldtake one tablespoon and just a very small thing of water. Apple cider vinegar is a great thing to do.It's a great natural remedy because apple cider vinegar has a very low pH in balancewith your stomach. That's the number one remedy.
By the way, one of the thing oftentimes I'lladd to my apple cider vinegar before a meal are digestive bitters. You can get a littletincture of digestive bitters. Those are also great. In fact, bitters have been consumedfor thousands of years right after meals or before meals to improve your digestion. Number two thing you want to start takingto improve your stomach acid are digestive enzymes. I would get a good digestive enzymeblend and do one to two caps right before your meal. You could even take that with theapple cider vinegar. Digestive enzymes will help you fully break down those nutrients.
If your stomach acid is too high, that willactually not allow you to break down the food you're eating, so you must get plenty of enzymes.That's not something you should have to take the rest of your life, but it is somethingyou should take for a time until your stomach acid balances out. That's number two. Number three thing you may consider if youhave stomach acid is HCL with pepsin. That's hydrochloric acid with pepsin. Now, hydrochloricacid is naturally created in your stomach now. That is really the main thing that createsthat very acidic environment to break down food.
But if you're deficient in hydrochloric acid,in stomach acid yourself, that's not going to allow you to fully digest and break downthings like protein, which over time, can also cause a condition called leaky gut. Soyou want to do everything you can to heal and repair your gut. So again, HCL with pepsin is a great thingyou can start taking on a regular basis to really help heal your GI tract, to help fightthings like acid reflux, but again, to help improve stomach acid. Now, the trick with HCL is you typically wantto take that while you're under the care of
a physician or start off with one capsule.By the way, you only take HCL with pepsin if you're taking protein during a meal. Soagain, if you're not taking protein in a meal, you don't want to use it. If you're getting quite a bit of protein ina meal like chicken or beef, you want to take HCL. When you get warmness in your stomachthat means you're taking enough. You need to back it down. Some people need one, somepeople may need to take up to nine capsules of HCL with pepsin. The fourth thing you can do to improve stomachacid is take Manuka honey. Manuka honey is
Natural Treatments for Lupus
Hey, guys, Axe here, of naturalmedicine and Founder of DrAxe . In this tutorial, I'm going to talk about lupus naturaltreatments and natural cures for lupus. So I'll go over the best supplements for lupus,the best food specifically and then food that will probably surprise you, but foods thatyou absolutely want to stay away from. Lupus is an inflammatory condition that can affectthe entire body including muscles, tissues and organs. And also it's an autoimmune diseasein nature. An autoimmune disease is where your body's own immune system starts attackingorgans that it should never attack in the first place. But here's the good news. I'veworked with thousands of patients with autoimmune
disease and many of those with lupus and we'veseen complete recoveries in many of those patients. So let's go ahead and jump. I'm going to start with supplements, thengo into diet and then foods you should stay from. So first off, if you have lupus, thereare five supplements that are the best to take. The number one supplement is going tobe Vitamin D3. Vitamin D level, Vitamin D specifically, it's not just a vitamin, it'sknown as a pro hormone. It's essential for balancing hormones in the body but also formodulating your immune system and that's really the key in overcoming any or autoimmune issue,but especially one like lupus, is we've got
to help balance out how you're immune systemis functioning and so vitamin D is critical. You can go and get a vitamin D test, but here'sthe truth, over 80% of people are vitamin D deficient and I would guess over 90% ofpeople with autoimmune disease or more are vitamin D deficient. So it's almost a mustthat you should get vitamin D. I recommend 5,000 IUs twice a day for one month and thenafter that, 5,000 IUs a day. And best if you can go and get sunshine that day. That's idealfor about 30 minutes directly on your skin. That's what you want to do and during thosedays, you don't need to take the supplement, but, ideally, vitamin D supplements, numberone.
The number two supplement is going to be collagenprotein powder. Now, collagen is the main ingredient in bone broth and it contains theamino acid proline. Now, the root cause of lupus is a condition called leaky gut syndrome.Really lupus, an autoimmune disease, it starts in the gut with leaky gut. So we've got torepair your gut if we want to heal lupus. And so collagen protein powder and amino acidslike glutamine help repair the digestive tract. The number three supplement you should betaking for lupus is frankincense essential oil. Frankincense has been used for thousandsof years and it contains an antioxidant called Boswellia and Boswellia is one of the mostpowerful natural antiinflammatories in the
world. So start using frankincense essentialoil. What I recommend is you get a bottle of frankincense oil and just rub it all overyour body but specifically your neck and your forehead and just a little bit under yournose. Also, one other thing you can do is do two drops of frankincense on your thumband rub it on the roof of your mouth twice a day. Frankincense essential oil, again,helps balance out the immune system, which is critical. Also, there's a really unique study done onlupus and they found that those with lupus tend to have low stomach acid. And if youhave low stomach acid, there are a few things
you can do. One is eat smaller meals. Anotherthing is be rested while you eat and chew more. Another thing is do a little bit ofapple cider vinegar and water. But, from a supplement standpoint, digestive enzymes andalso taking something called HCL, that's hydrochloric acid. So again, digestive enzymes are the firstthing I would take. I'd take two to three capsules with meals, especially if you'reconsuming a meat product. And if you are consuming meat as well, you might try one or two capsulesof HCL with pepsin. And then, last but not least, probiotics. You know probiotics arecritical for crowding yeast out of the body,
