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 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
Is Leaky Gut Candida
Thank you for checking this tutorial out. Isleaky gut Candidaé Is leaky gut Candida itself or is it associated with Candidaé Can youexplain this pleaseé Well, what you're going to find is leaky gutor intestinal permeability is not generally caused by Candida, but there's often a bigassociation between them both. Many people develop leaky gut syndrome as a consequenceof their diet or lifestyle. In fact, most patients I see have some type of intestinalpermeability. This is a real problem today, and we see itparticularly with people with poor lifestyles. People who aren't resting up enough. Peopleeating the wrong kind of foods. People who
are relying on medications, all sorts of medicationsfor the stomach, for their joints for inflammation, headache pills, all sorts of pills. They canaffect the digestion quite a lot. Some foods that contribute to leaky gut inmy opinion are commercial poultry with quite a lot of antibiotics in it. You'd be surprisedhow many antibiotics are put in commercial poultry that's quite inexpensive, so thesefoods destroy a lot of the beneficial bacteria and contribute to leaky gut. You may not beaware of that. How do you know you've got leaky guté Whatare some of the signs and symptoms of ité Food intolerance, bloating, a lot of gas,flatulence, these are typical signs and symptoms
of leaky gut syndrome. Change in bowel habitwhen the bowel's a bit all over the place can be a sign there as well. I would say that in my opinion that most peoplewith Candida have some degree of leaky gut. A quick way to overcome this, of course, isto include some fermented or cultured foods into the diet. Remove the poor dietary choicesthat you're making, particularly sugars and alcohols and foods like that. Abstain fromall pharmaceutical medications is a good step in the right direction. Eating a lot morefresh foods and in summer, I like people to eat raw foods like fresh salads. Cut up yourown foods. Grow your own foods if you can.
I've got a large vegetable garden, so I tendto grow a lot of leafy greens and all the brassicas, all the solanaceaes and tomatoes,egg plants, capsicums, all the herbs. I grow large amounts of parsley and mint, basil,oregano, thyme, rosemary; I grow all of the herbs. We tend to cook with lots of freshfoods. I have usually stirfries every day for lunch, which are partially cooked foodsand I put in there lots of spring onions, the Chinese vegetables that go in there. Thisis a good dietary approach. These sorts of foods are going to heal the leaky gut. Fresh foods contain enzymes. Enzymes allowthe body to break the foods down rapidly and
extract more goodness from them. Cooked foodsdon't do that. Cooked foods are harder to digest, so easy to digest foods. A good wayto look and understand if your bowel is healthy is to look at the bowel motions themselves.Wellformed bowel motions and easily eliminated is a sign of a healthy bowel generally. Especiallyif there's no bloating and there's minimal gas. That tells you that you're not eatinga lot of bad sugars. That you're eating plenty of fiber and you've got a good water contentto the diet as well. These are manners to overcome leaky gut syndrome. And also Candidahates a diet that is full of these sorts of fresh vegetables and fruits.
Initially with Candida, you need to be carefulof the fruits, but over a period of time, you can eat all the fruits again. Fruits generallycan upset a person with severe yeast infection, so that's just a couple of good ideas foryou. Last tip that I'll leave you with is to reallytry to increase the amount of cultured or fermented foods you eat. This will reallyhelp you overcome leaky gut, particularly if you like foods like sauerkraut that I do.I recently cut up eight cabbages and made up a large amount of sauerkraut. I also enjoykefir culture. Kefir is very simple to make at home and so is sauerkraut. Yogurt's easyto make at home. Kimchee is easy to make at
