Leaky Gut And Candida Treatment

How to Heal Leaky Gut Syndrome

Okay, well, I want to welcome everyone. Thisis Nik Hedberg, and tonight we're talking about how to heal leaky gut syndrome. So,let's get this started. I really enjoy doing these webinars, tryingto get some good information out there to everyone. And leaky gut, it's a big issue.Its main connections are going to be with autoimmune diseases and a variety of chronicconditions, which we'll talk about. I'm just going to cover what it is, what causes leakygut, and then some of the things that you can do about it, and then how we manage itin the practice if it's there. The medical term for leaky gut is gastrointestinalhyperpermeability. It is recognized in conventional

medicine, but it's really not going to berecognized by your average . They kind of look down on it or laugh at it, so to speak,but it is definitely something very real. So, let's go ahead and jump right in. Gettingto the symptoms, conditions associated, conditions connected with leaky gut syndrome, and asI mentioned, autoimmune diseases are a big one, like Hashimoto's thyroiditis, Graves'disease, lupus, Sjögren's, alopecia, rheumatoid arthritis, et cetera. A lot of the symptoms you'll see are fatigue,brain fog. Brain fog is basically inflammation of the brain. Because we don't have pain receptorsin the brain, that's basically how the body

tells us that the brain is inflamed when there'sfogginess. And there's a really strong connection there between the gut and the brain just in general. Weight gain, depression and anxiety. There'sa lot of literature out there connecting chronic inflammation and inflammation in the gut andpsychological issues like depression and anxiety. Different digestive problems, like IrritableBowel Syndrome, Crohn's disease, all sorts of colitis, and then just general symptomslike gas, bloating, cramping, things like that. Food allergies, of course. Arthritis and jointpain, migraine headaches, adrenal gland imbalances,

and then what we call adrenal fatigue, andthen of course asthma and allergies. The gut barrier is called a mucosal barrier,and if there's dysfunction there, there's going to be dysfunction in the other mucosalbarriers like the lungs, for example. So, what is leaky guté What you see here onthe left is what we will call a healthy gut lining. These are what we call villi, they'relike fingers, and that's where all of the absorption occurs in between these gaps. Thisis also where the immune system is. So the gut barrier protects you from a lot of differentthings. It protects you from infections like viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites, it protectsyou from absorbing undigested protein, and

so it's this mucosal barrier that's very protective. Now, leaky gut is when that barrier becomesbroken down, and you can see it's all flat here, all of the villi have been compromised.And so when you have leaky gut, you can also have malabsorption. That might be kind ofdifficult to understand for some people, but the intestinal barrier is selective, and whenthe immune system becomes compromised, then it can no longer protect you from the varietyof things that we just talked about. Malabsorption means that the absorptive capacityof the gut barrier is not what it used to be, so people will start to develop nutrientdeficiencies and they won't be able to absorb

protein, carbohydrates and fat. So this isa visual of what we call leaky gut. Now, these are some of the main causes. Whatyou see here in the pink is a diagram of the intestinal barrier. I want to give creditto Aristo Vojdani, he is an immunologist for this slide, and Vojdani has spokenextensively on leaky gut. So these are some of the main things thatwe see up here. Dietary proteins and peptides, so that's going to be like gluten, dairy andother allergies; other foods that are highly allergenic; antibodies, and that's if there'ssome kind of infection in the intestine; drugs and xenobiotics, so environmental chemicals,environmental toxins; prescription medications,

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

What Is The Difference In Treating Leaky Gut Compared To Treating Candida

Greetings. New Zealand naturopath, Eric Bakker.I'm the author of Candida Crusher and also the formulator of the Canxida range of supplements.I have a question here from a man called Angelo Macradakus. Angelo sounds like a Greek guy.I really like Greek people. I used to have a lot of Greek patients when I practiced inBrisbane in Australia many years ago and I really enjoy Greek festivals and Greek culture.quot;Hi, Eric. I just want to say thanks for all your amazing content. Your tutorials have beenextremely helpful alongside your book. I was just hoping you could make one of your extensivetutorials on what the differences are with the lifestyle, nutrition and supplementation whendealing with leaky gut as well as Candida,

as opposed to just Candida, if there are anyat all. I greatly appreciate this. Thanks for your good work. Keep up the good content.quot;Angelo, this is for you, my friend. Not just because you're Greek and I like Greek people,but also because it's a very valid question. What is the difference with treatment if youlook at lifestyle, nutrition and supplementation with leaky gut as opposed to CandidaéPeople with leaky gut and, in fact, many people have got leaky gut. I would go as far to sayanyone who lives a diet based on western diet and lifestyle principles will have leaky gutto some degree. That's because we all tend to eat food that contains some element ofchemicals, preservatives, emulsifiers, all

these sort of things in our food, includingantibiotics, artificial sugars, they seem to permeate our lifestyle and diet to a bigdegree. Unless you've got an extremely austere lifestyle and you eat everything completely100 percent unprocessed and you grow all your own food and live on a farm and where a strawhat and don't have electricity and drink pure water that's been purified and all this sortof stuff, you're going to get some kind of element of chemicals into your diet. Thatcan affect the membrane or the gut of the diet.Some people have got seriously bad leaky gut. How do you know you've got bad leaky gutéIf you're drinking alcohol on a regular basis,

you will have leaky gut, period. If you drinkalcohol every day, you will have a major leaky gut problem. We know that. If you take pharmaceuticaldrugs, you'll have leaky gut. You could be taking pills for headache, arthritis pain,NSAID, what we call nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs. You could be taking drugs to blockacidity of the stomach like Nexium, for example, omeprazole. You could be taking anticonvulsants.You could be taking antibiotics. You could be taking antidepressants. Any pharmaceuticalmedication that you're on in time is going to cause leaky gut. If you're in that category,welcome to the leaky gut club. If you're eating commercially raised poultry, you'll have leakygut. If you're eating grain fed beef, you'll

have leaky gut.How do I know all this stuffé It's because I've been treating patients now for such along period of time. I've done so many of these lactulose and mannitol digestive permeabilitytests that I've worked out that people who eat and drink like this will have leaky gut.Leaky gut predisposes you to a whole raft of potential different problems. It's oneof the major things that can underpin a lot of autoimmune disorders. These are diseaseswhere the immune system starts attacking itself. No known cause they say. Well, welcome tothe club if you live in the western country. I doubt that leaky gut is a condition thataffects many people who live in underdeveloped

countries, particularly people who live inIndia who just eat lentils and rice. These people don't go to the corner shop and buya can of coke every day. They don't have energy drinks, Red Bull for breakfast. They don'thave fries for lunch. When you're living a lifestyle based on an indigenous person whois living a very simple lifestyle, eating a very basic sort of diet, I doubt very muchif you're going to have a strong degree of leaky gut.But let's talk about the treatment differences. I don't really think there are a lot of differencesbetween treating leaky gut and treating Candida. The principles in my mind are the same. Thebig thing I like people to stay away from
