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
Top 7 Foods for Healing Leaky Gut
Hey guys, Axe here, of naturalmedicine. In this tutorial I'm going to share with you the top seven foods for healing leakygut along with the healing leaky gut diet. Leaky gut syndrome is where you get somethingcalled intestinal permeability. That's where certain proteins like gluten start to leakthrough your intestinal wall, get in your blood stream, and then cause systemic bodywide inflammation. It can cause inflammation of your thyroid causing Hashimoto's disease.It can cause inflammation of your large intestine and cause inflammatory bowel disease. It canalso cause inflammation causing food sensitivities and different reactions in your body. By consumingthese seven foods it can help you heal leaky
gut syndrome for good. Let's start off here with the number one food,and that's bone broth. Bone broth has traditionally been made by boiling or cooking the ligamentsof chickens as well as the bones and also bones from beef. What happens is certain aminoacids and minerals come out into the liquid. The most powerful amino acids are prolineand glycine. We know proline is a precursor to collagen. We know when your body stopsproducing collagen over time it's what causes you to get wrinkles and your skin to get loose.It's a similar thing with your digestive tract. We want that tight. We want those tight junctionstight in your gut. We don't want things like
gluten getting through. Proline and glycine,the amino acids in bone broth, help tighten it up and can help repair the damaged gutlining. Drinking bone broth every day is incrediblyhealthy for healing leaky gut syndrome. Also, bone broth contains Lglutamine, another aminoacid that really works as a BandAid for your small intestine and colon and really helpingprotect those areas. Again, bone broth, number one healing food for leaky gut. I recommendeight ounces two times a day. The best thing to do is get a big CrockPot and make realbone broth soup and drink that several times a day.
The second healing food for leaky gut syndromeis kefir or homemade yogurt. We know fermented dairy is the most probiotic rich super foodin the world today. If you can be getting goat's milk kefir or homemade yogurt. Homemadeyogurt should be fermented 24 to 29 hours. We know it contains specific types of probioticssuch as lactobacillus which have been shown to crowd out bad bacteria such as differenttypes of yeast and fungus and really help increase the probiotics in the gut. Listen, most people today have a severe probioticdeficiency. If you're going to heal leaky gut, you have got to restore any probioticdeficiencies. Again, kefir, goat's milk kefir
and yogurt are the best. You can find thoseat your local health food store. The third healing food for leaky gut syndromeare fermented vegetables such as sauerkraut, kimchi, kvass, and coconut kefir as well.Different types of fermented vegetables, especially sauerkraut, are greatly beneficial becauseit contains bacillus subtilis. Bacillus subtilis is a soil based probiotic. It also containslactobacillus plantarum probably in the largest levels. These probiotics in a similar fashioncrowd out bad bacteria. Also, they're at a certain Ph. You know thatreally sour, tart taste when you're tasting sauerkrauté Those are organic acids. Thoseacids really help feed and fuel probiotics
in the gut. It's not just about getting moreprobiotics. It's about creating an environment where probiotics can flourish. Again, gettingsauerkraut and kimchi and fermented vegetables in your diet is a great way to establish thatgood bacteria in the gut. The number four super food for healing leakygut is coconut products, especially coconut oil. Coconut oil has antimicrobial properties.It contains the fatty acids lauric acid, capric acid, and caprylic acid. These are known asmedium chain fats or medium chain triglycerides. They kill off bad bacteria in the gut. Theyare very easy to digest. For that reason, all other oils in your diet should reallybe replaced with coconut oil when it comes
Hey, guys, Axe here. I'm so excited toshare with you a new, cuttingedge product we have and one of the supplements that Ipersonally use the most and its collagen protein. And collagen protein is actually the aminoacids that you would find in something like bone broth today, which we know to be oneof the top healing foods in the entire world. Collagen really has four unique benefits andas I go through this tutorial, by the way, I also want to go through who needs to be takingthis and how it can benefit your health. But really, four main benefits. One, this really improves leaky gut or itreally supports your digestive tract. So collagen
really supports digestion. Also, it helpswith joint health and even things like any sort of joint discomfort. The other thing it can help with is helpingtone and tighten your skin. So it's used in a lot of skin products, collagen is. Lastbut not least, collagen is also used to support a healthy metabolism for things like fatburning,weight loss overall, even building muscle. But collagen is important for, really, allof those things. So what collagen is, again, its amino acidsand amino acids are the building blocks of protein. So, number one, if you are tryingto increase your metabolism or get more protein
in your diet, supplementing with collagenis fantastic and it works for so many people because collagen is dairyfree, it's glutenfreeand it's easily digested. So even a lot of people in things like the GAPS diet or peopleout there who are looking to really support and heal their gut, they use collagen insteadof protein powder. Or a lot of people like myself do protein powder and collagen, maybeeven some green superfood powder there in my morning smoothie. But again, collagen is really for anybodywho are looking for those four distinct ways to support their body and benefit their bodyand number one is joints. Collagen works because
collagen is the building blocks of your tissues.So if you're an athlete or you have any sort of joint pain or discomfort or you're a runneror any sort of stress on your joints or if you experience joint discomfort on a regularbasis, collagen is the building blocks of supporting your body and your body creatingnew and healthy tissues. That's why it's so great for your joints, whether it be issueswith your knees or hips or shoulders or risks or back or any of those joint areas, it'sfantastic. Collagen is a great thing you want to be supplementing with on a daily basis. Also, as I mentioned earlier, it's great foryour skin. Collagen is made up of two amino
acids primarily called proline and glycine.Proline is that amino acid that helps tighten your skin. So you're going to find collagensupplements are found in a lot of skincare products. It's even used by some people tohelp reduce issues like cellulite. But we know collagen is great because collagen helpsfirm, tone and tighten your skin. One of the things that happens as we startto age is your own skin and body starts producing less collagen. So you need to be getting morecollagen in your diet on a regular basis and so doing a little bit of collagen powder inyour morning smoothie or throughout the day is a great way to really support and toneand tighten your skin naturally.
Also, collagen is vitally important for helpingheal your gut. Now, collagen can be used or it's very similar to gelatin and collagenis what helps make up gelatin and those amino acids, proline and glycine. But your gut,we know issues like leaky gut. Your gut kind of works as a net and you can get holes inyour gut. Gluten can leak through and that's essentially what leaky gut is or digestiveissues. It's when things like gluten or casein or toxins leak through your gut, get intoyour bloodstream and cause systemwide inflammation which can then affect your joints. It caneven lead to things like autoimmune disease over time or skin issues or thyroid issuesor any sort of inflammatory reaction.
