I think his name is Josh and Josh is asking me quot;Eric, can you pleasedo a tutorial on foods to avoid for Leaky Gut syndromeéquot; Josh, one thing you and I havegot in common. I think I've checked out your site. You love playing chess. So do I, butI keep getting beaten by my teenage son, which is really annoying for me. One thing I don'tget beaten by is questions for Candida, so we're going to address that right now.What are some foods to avoid with leaky guté
Well, I've just spent a little bit of timeon the internet looking at a lot of sites on leaky gut syndrome to get a feel for whatthe general consensus is out there. Here's quite a wellknown website from a very wellknown in America who will remain nameless and this is saying, quot;Foods that causeleaky gut, gluten, cow's products, sugar, unsprouted grains, and GMO.quot; Very true, ,but there are a lot of things that you're missing out on. I'm going to go into somedetail with this tutorial. Grains, I've got another site, in fact, I just went to Google and typedin foods to avoid with leaky gut, and the paleodiet came up. Grains, legumes, dairy,sugar, unhealthy oils, alcohol, caffeine,
excessive carbohydrate consumption. This isa bit closer to the mark. But when you've got leaky gut, basically,a good advice for you with foods to avoid in general is processed foods. Processed foods,in general. So when you go shopping, I've said this before in tutorials, if you do shopat a supermarket, buy your foods only from the outside perimeter. Meats, vegetables,perishable products because these are less likely to cause problems with leaky gut. Itis true that alcohol and caffeine do cause leaky gut. Alcohol, to me, is the top of thequot;noquot; tree when it comes to leaky gut. If you would say to me, quot;What food is most associatedwith leaky gutéquot; I would say alcohol.
What out of everything I know is associatedwith leaky gut is antibiotics. That's really the top of the biggest tree is antibioticsor all kinds of pharmaceutical medications, antiinflammatories, steroids, antidepressants,sleeping pills, any kind of a drug, for blocking stomach acid or reducing pain. All of thesedrugs are involved in leaky gut. Including Tylenol, paracetamol, any of these kind ofdrugs. Birth control pills, all involved with leaky gut. But antibiotics are the top ofthe tree. But when we look at foods and beverages, alcoholis right at the top, so don't even think about drinking alcohol if you're worried about leakygut. And even if your gut is healthy like
mine, drinking alcohol occasionally will predisposeyou to leaky gut. You will make your gut increasingly leaky by drinking. Every drink you take increasesyour likelihood of making the gut leakier and leakier. And then on top of that if youput antibiotics and high stress in there, you're a sitting duck for a serious leakygut problem. Grains, yes and no. I believe that most peoplecan tolerate small amounts of gluten in their diet when they're healthy like me. I don'teat bread or flour products. I much prefer to have brown rice in my diet and grains likequinoa or millet. But I do have a piece of bread every now and then and I really enjoya nice piece of toast with some tahini or
an organic peanut butter. And I really enjoythe taste, the texture, the smell, and I'm sure most people do. I would not eat a pieceof bread every single day with peanut butter on it. I wouldn't do that. It's just everynow and then; these things are fine. Grains in general. You need to be carefulof refined flours, white flour, donuts, cookies, these sorts of foods. Every time I go to theairport and fly out, I see the donut stand and you see all the big large people sittingthere buying donuts with all these sugar toppings. That's crap. That's the sort of stuff youwant to avoid. Ice cream, refined carbohydrates, these sorts of foods. That's the sugars. Chocolatebars full of sugar, candy, confectionary,
How To Cleanse Your Colon Naturally
Hey guys, Axe here, of naturalmedicine and founder of DrAxe . In this tutorial I'm going to talk to you about how tonaturally cleanse your colon and really go through the exact steps and the best foodsand herbs and supplements you need to cleanse your colon naturally. I'll say most of these other colon cleansesout there that people are recommending are sort of fads. They're not really going towork longterm. What I'm going to teach you here is really how to do this over severaldays, but then also how to keep these different things incorporated in your diet longtermin daily life that's going to naturally help
cleanse your colon. The truth is your colon doesn't necessarilyneed a lot of help but just needs no interference. For a lot of us we're consuming differentfoods and doing things on a regular basis that are really sort of blocking our colonup and keeping it from doing its job. So the number one step you need to follow in cleansingyour colon is eliminating processed refined foods and fast foods. So again, anything thatis a packaged food, anything that you're buying, let's say, at a fast food restaurant, we knowthat those foods are going to cause intestinal inflammation. So step number one, get ridof the processed foods.
Now my top foods, I'll go here in workingorder of the best foods for cleansing your colon. Number one is fermented vegetables.If you're not consuming fermented foods like sauerkraut and kimchi, you've got to get thosein your diet. So the number one thing is start consuming sauerkraut or kimchi every singleday. The number two way to start cleansing yourcolon is to start consuming more probioticrich foods in the form of fermented dairy likegoat's milk kefir, and goat's milk yogurt. We know those are the highest foods in probiotics. Step number three, eat apples. Apples haveincredible benefits at cleansing the colon.
They've got pectin, a specific type of fiber,as well as quercetin that can really help cleanse the colon. So again, apples are probablythe best fruit when it comes to cleansing the colon. The next here, another sort of fruit, is avocadoes.Now, avocadoes are great because not only are they one of the most fiber rich foodson the planet, but it also contains large amounts of potassium and magnesium. Potassiumand magnesium are the top two minerals that you need in order to start flushing out yourcolon. You know sodium and salt makes you hold water; potassium causes you to startto flush water and toxins from your system,
and magnesium helps loosen the muscles andrelax the muscles of the colon so you can have easier bowel movements and bowel function.So again, avocadoes are an amazing food because of the healthy fats. The magnesium and thepotassium and the fiber make it a great food for naturally cleansing your colon. The next thing you want to naturally cleanseyour colon is flax seeds, or specifically sprouted flax, another amazing fiber richfood that's loaded with omega3 fatty acids. We know flax, just adding a couple of tablespoonsin a morning smoothie, can naturally help cleanse your colon.
The next thing is an herb called triphala.Now triphala has been used in India and Asia for centuries as a natural tonic that cansupport colon function. So if you want to really support your colon, triphala is anincredible herb you want to look into or an herbal sort of remedy. That's TRIPHALA.Triphala is again very, very powerful, very strong at supporting your overall colon health. And then last but not least, getting moreclean water. About eight glasses a day of pure clean water is great for naturally cleansingthe colon. What this should look like is this. What I recommend if you want to do, let'ssay, a weeklong, sevenday colon cleanse,
Vitalife Digestive Wellness Colon Hydrotherapy Colonics
I was always feeling heavy and toxic. The pain was excruciating to a point wheremy teeth were chattering. Just feeling weighed down from the insideout. I was keeping my head in the sand. It just felt like I was going to explode. Hormones have always been an issue. Since I was about two or three years old I'vebeen struggling with going to the washroom on my own.
54 years of chronic constipation. I had a lot of digestive issues, I had IBSfor 20 or 30 years. Why don't you take a pillé People are really getting sick and tired,of being sick and tired. You have this, take a pill, take a pill, takea pill. Taking pills for everything, taking medications,people are becoming a lot more educated, and a lot more aware. I'm the owner of Vitalife Digestive Wellness here in the Beaches in Toronto.
My name is Christa Cheverie, I work here atVitalife, I am a colon hydrotherapist and holistic nutritionist. So colon hydrotherapy is also known as colonics,it's basically a professional colon cleanse. It's actually been around for thousands ofyears, and it's an all natural process. It takes about an hour, sessions are 30 to40 minutes. We put warm filtered water through the colon, it's very natural, do a littlebit of abdonimal massage and try to clean out as many toxins as possible. Mucus and parasites and yeast and a lot ofwaste.
Their first instinct is scared and quot;why wouldyou do thatquot;é When I scheduled the first one, I was a littlebit panicky. A bit anxious about the whole affair because I had just read about themup to that point. The first time I had a colonic done, it wasembarrassing initially because you're essentially being vulnerable to someone that you don'tknow. It's a scary procedure when you don't understandwhat it is. And you're having this tool inserted intoyou. Scary.
Anxious. A little scared, but also excited of whatit could possibly do for me. It felt a little strange at first. When I came in for the first time I was reallyreally really nervous. I can see why some people would think it'svery vulnerable, or why the feel like they're being exposed or that it's embarrassingto come. We use warm filtered water, we don't use anyherbs or drugs. They insert water. Warm purified water upinto your colon.
Your colin contracts through peristalsis,which moves the waste through your colon. They massage your stomach to get the digestivesystem awake. And then the other side of the tube sucks it all out. There's no odor, there's no mess, but theviewing tube for the waste is clear. So you, yourself can see what is coming out. I could actually see what was coming out ofmy body. Literally pounds of waste, toxic waste cancome out of your colon throughout one session. I was actually cleaning my insides out.
