5 Scary Signs You Have Leaky Gut
Alright, my friend! Drew Canole. Thank you fortuning in to this week Saturday Strategy. Last week, we talked about the 23 thingsthat you and I can do to cleanse our body. You've seen amazing results with it. We got flooded with comments. Over 60,000 shares in two days. And that tells methat you love this type of information and it's actually impacting the peoplethat you care about. And that's why we do what we do at Fitlife.tv. At the end ofthis tutorial, I'm gonna be picking a winner of the juicer. But this week, we'retalking about the 11 things that I eat on a regular basis to transform my gut health. I'm also gonna tell you what leaky gut
is and the foods that you should avoid atall costs when restoring not only your immune system but your gut. You see yourgut is responsible for 80% of your entire immune system. And I want you todo this exercise with me real quick. Come back over here. We're out here inbeautiful Coronado, so sunny California. I have to love this place. And I want youto do a visualization exercise with me. I love to go outside in nature just visualize. Ithink it's really important. So what I want you to do is imagine the perfectday when you were absolutely the happiest that you've ever been.
Who are you withé What were you doingéImagine it for a second. How did you feel in that state when you were the happiesté Nowwhat I want you to do is imagine that you only had five percent of the abilityto be happy on that day. You see, 95% of the neurotransmitters, in particular,serotonin, comes from your gut. And it comes to your brain, righté That's thathappy molecule that we all want. We want to feel those happiness, the mood that'sresponsible for putting you in that state. And when you don't have it, whenyou have these glasses on that limit you to 5% of the happiness that you canexperience,
it changes your whole reality. You see a lot ofpeople are living like this. Fiftyfive percent of the U.S. is experiencing leakygut right now or gut dysbiosis. And what that is is the failure to actuallyproper absorb your food, properly absorb your food. See, it's no longer you are what youeat, it's you are what you absorb. And I've talked to you about this before. So how dowe restore the guté What things can we cut out so that we know that our littlewhite blood cells, those little soldiers that you and I have in our bodies, thatare the first line of defense, can be strong, vibrant, and healthy. Let's talkabout it!
Alright, come on in! Have a seat with me. I gottasit on for this just because I've heard this recently while doing my research forthis week's Saturday Strategy, and I was disturbed. Then, I know you're gonna bethere with this. Know that at the end of this tutorial, you're gonna have more thanenough knowledge to go out and help impact people and help them heal theirguts. But this is, this is gonna change everything. So ninetyfive percent of thenation's corn is genetically modified, righté And one of the biggest sprays thatthey put on this genetically modified food contains a chemical that is an antibiotic. Antibiotics not only destroy the
bad bacteria in your gut but the goodbacteria. So here we have a population that's eating genetically modified food. It's destroying the good gut bacteria in the body. Nnow we talked about white bloodcells, righté So your white blood cells are always in your gut, they're restoringyour gut, your leaky gut. And your body's defense system has plummeted. Eightypercent of your immune system comes from your gut, so you don't even know, most thetime, that you're eating these genetically modified foods. They'reharming your body in such a way toward disease acne, skin issues, premature aging all of these is the stress being put on on
How Can You Tell If You Have Leaky Gut Syndrome
Greetings. It's Eric Bakker, naturopath fromNew Zealand, author of Candida Crusher and formulator of the Canxida range of supplements.Thanks for checking out my tutorial. We're going to go a bit further into leaky gut syndrome.And now, we're going to have a look at how do you know you've got leaky gut syndromeéWhat are some of the conditions that are basically there if you've got this conditioné How doyou knowé I've written a few points down. I'll just go over these.To begin with, you will have most probably digestive issues like gas, bloating, irritablebowel syndrome, diarrhea, or constipation. You will have had these quite possibly formonths or even years. You may have gone to
different practitioners trying to resolvethis condition. You may have treated it with all kinds of laxatives or things like aloevera. You could have been given probiotics. You could have been given antifungals, allsorts of things you have been given. Your may have just given you an antibiotic,which would make it a lot worse. Generally, with leaky gut, you will have some kind ofongoing gut problem. Seasonal allergies or asthma. Many peoplewith leaky gut syndrome have got a challenged immune system because the brush border ï¿½ asI mentioned in a previous tutorial ï¿½ and the boundaries there are broken down. Things thatare occurring inside your small gut can trans
migrate into the bloodstream and challengethe immune system. This upregulates your immune system and makes it on red alert. This makesyou much more prone to having hypersensitivities or allergies of all kinds. Seasonal allergies.You'll think, quot;Oh my goodness. Spring is here again. Those pine trees are causing me a problem.quot;There could be something flowering in your district at a certain time of year. It's playingup on you all the time. I don't treat allergies anymore. I treat thegut. I find it a waste of time giving people quercetin and Vitamin C, nasal sprays, allthis junk, I don't do that anymore. I treat the digestive system for allergies, and generally,the allergies go away by their own accord.
These people will often have an upregulatedcirculatory IGA. When we do a blood test, we find really high IGA levels and these arethe people that react to everything. They're hyper reactors. Don't treat the immune system.Treat the gut. Because we know that about 60 percent of the immune system resides inthe small intestine anyway. So if we heal that, we're going to have a big chance ofhealing the immune system. Common senseé Common sense to me.Hormonal imbalances like premenstrual syndrome, even polycystic ovarian syndrome. How canhormonal imbalances occur as a result of leaky gut syndromeé That's a good question. Thereare many underlying mechanisms that can throw
this off. There is estimated to be close to200 hormones in the body, and we know that the hormones are regulated through very complexprocesses. Through autonomic nervous system function. This is the autonomic nervous systemthat controls the body to a huge degree. We've got the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervoussystem and the enteric nervous system. The enteric is the gut, so the digestive systeminterfaces with the brain. They talk. We call the gut the quot;second brain.quot; That's remarkable.So we know that if your gut is not functioning properly that your endocrine system won'tfunction properly. Many people with a disordered digestive systemhave got adrenal problems, thyroid problems,
ovarian problems, hypothyroid problems, pituitaryproblems, sleep problems; it goes on and on. The point I'm making is that if your gut isnot working properly, your hormone system won't work properly. I can't go into the underlyingbiochemical mechanisms on this tutorial. We could do a threehour tutorial on that alone. It'spretty complex. But believe me, if you've got a really upset digestive system, thereis a big chance you'll have an upset hormone system.Diagnosis of autoimmune diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto's, lupus, psoriasis,celiac disease. I specialize also in psoriasis. Through research, I've found out through thePsoriasis Foundation that up to three quarters
Leaky Gut Syndrome Causes Symptoms Risk Factors How To Reverse Leaky Gut
Thanks for checking out this comprehensivetutorial today. In this tutorial, I'm going to talk about leaky gut syndrome. It's a functionalcomplaint that's often been maligned by medical practitioners. Before I delve into it, I justwant to read out an email I got from a firstyear medical student from America regarding leakygut. I wrote an article on EricBakker regardingleaky gut, and this is what this particular student wrote. She says, quot;Mr. Bakker, leakygut syndrome is pure naturopathic nonsense. It's just like adrenal fatigue, just anotherfictitious manmade disease. Many people confuse adrenal fatigue with Addison's disease, whichis an actual, real and diagnosable medical
condition when you don't make enough cortisolin your glands. This can only be diagnosed by your real , and various tests areneeded to diagnose this disease. Candida is bullshit, too. It is possible to have a fullbody fungal infection, but you'd be in the intensive care unit nearly dead.' Signed,Miss so and so. This is a very interesting email from a person,obviously a firstyear medical student, so I'll forgive her for her ignorance. When Iwas a medical student, I was quite ignorant, too, and had a lot of strong opinions aboutthings which I know now 27 years later I've got completely different ideas about. It'sinteresting and I think back at my dad who
was a very pragmatic man, and Dad said thatopinions are like bowel motions. We all have them from time to time. Sometimes some peoplehave more or less. Sometimes people are full of these things and just pass out bowel motionsall the time. Almost like verbal diarrhea. And that's what we've got in this case. Aperson with verbal diarrhea. So I'll forgive this person, of course, because she's a medicalstudent. And if she happens to see this YouTube clip, I welcome her to contact me when she'squalified and maybe 10 years down the track when she's settled into a practice a bit moreand overcome a little bit of that verbal diarrhea. Let's now have a look at leaky gut syndrome,what the condition really entails. Leaky gut
syndrome is not a fictitious disease. In fact,there are many different research papers in mainstream medical journals that have beenwritten about intestinal permeability. It's certainly not fictitious by any means. Whenwe examine the small intestine, there are three sections to the small intestine. Thefirst part, which connects up to the stomach, is called the duodenum. And in America, Ibelieve they call it the duodenum. The duodenum contains quite a lot of intense solar activitythere in terms of digestion. In fact, there's a very small section at the beginning of theduodenum which is about 75 to 90 mils that contains most of the person's immune functionactivity of the whole digestive system. We're
talking about probably three or four inchesof bowel, which is impacted with an incredible amount of immune cells.It's estimated that about 60 percent of a person's immune activity is located in thesmall intestine, and probably three quarters of that is in the first three to four inchesof that section of small intestine. If we examine the small intestine and open it up,it has a surface area of about a tennis court. It's remarkable. You may see some pictureson the internet of what we call villi and microvilli. Villi are basically, I'll drawa picture for you. They're small, funny shaped objects like this. That's a villi and a villilooks a little bit like that. Microvilli are
basically the little projections that runoff the villi. You can see those. If you have a look closer, we've actually got even smallervilli that run off those. The point I'm making here is the surface area is dramatically increasedbecause we've got a huge amount of digestive area that we're looking at.If you look at the microvilli, little fingerlike projections, there's basically one cell layerthat goes around the microvilli. These cellular junctions in a healthy person are very tightand wellcontrolled spaces. And the body does this to allow very well digested particlesof proteins, carbohydrates and fats to get through to the circulatory system. These foodcomponents have to be broken down to the tiniest
