What Are The Signs And Symptoms Of Leaky Gut Syndrome
Greetings. Eric Bakker, naturopath from NewZealand, author Candida Crusher. I've got a question here from a guy in the States.I'm not going to mention his name. He wanted to stay anonymous. He's asking me Eric, whatare the signs and symptoms of leaky gut syndromeé The signs and symptoms, there could be a tonof them. I've done a few tutorials on leaky gut, and I did one just before basically on howdo you know that you've got leaky guté What are some of the conditions that are obviouswith ité The most common signs and symptoms of leakygut syndrome are gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, IBS, irritable bowel syndrome.These are very common ones. There are tons
of them. You can get digestive discomfortwith leaky gut. And a common place to get it is anywhere around here where the smallintestine is. Anywhere around this region, it's centrally. The large intestine tendsto be more the perimeter and the small intestine tends to be more central. Anywhere central.This is why people with parasites tend to have more of a sensation around the umbilicalcord because that is really a central part of the small intestine. And parasites, inmy opinion, especially acute parasite infections, tend to favor the small intestine, particularlythe center of it, the ileum. But when you've got leaky gut, you could alsofeel sensations a little bit higher up. And
they can be here sometimes. You could almostthink you've got heartburn. Leaky gut doesn't usually radiate any pain toward the back likea gall bladder pain or pancreatic pain will. It tends to be more frontal. And it can besomething like bloating, gas, or having to undo your waistband after a meal. Generally,you're not going to get pains off to the side as I mentioned because that's generally morecolon or large intestine dysfunction. It will be a central kind of disturbance.For the lesser known complaints with leaky gut can be things like brain fog, itchy skin,sore joints, seasonal allergies, immune dysfunction, insomnia, there can be a whole raft of differentthings that signal leaky gut syndrome. Remember,
what we're doing with leaky gut is we're allowingundigested food particles to enter into the bloodstream or potentially Candida or celldebris or all sorts of rubbish that really should be digested properly and filtered throughthe microvilli. But they're bypassing the microvilli, getting in through the intracellularjunctions, and challenging immune system. When we challenge the immune system, therecould be a myriad of complaints that could be possible. Thyroid dysfunction, autoimmunedisease, diabetes, all sort of conditions can occur as a result long term. Leaky gutis something that you really want to fix up in the early stages rather than let it buildup over a 10, 20, or 30 year period when it
gets seriously bad.Imagine you've got a small amount of rot in a roof of a house. In fact, my house thatI'm living in now, this is the rebuilt section, but old house up the front here. I've gota 100year old cottage. We built this extension on. But when we put a whole new roof overthe lot, we found so much rot in the roof of the old house. It cost me a fortune toget all the new beams replaced. Had that been repaired a long, long time ago, maybe 30,40 or 50 years ago, it would have been quite cheap. But now, it was in the tens of thousandsof dollars to repair that damage. Because the damage just continued on and on. And ifthe damage would have continued on for many
more years, the whole roof would have hadto be replaced, all the timber at a huge cost. Now, your digestive system is like that. Ifyou don't fix something up now when you've got a bit of gas or a bit of bloating or afew headaches or aches or pains, you can imagine what will happen if you leave that undisturbedfor 20, 30 or 40 years. Those are the functional complaints that end up becoming autoimmunediseases and even cancer. Lots of people laugh and joke when they pass gas, they fart, butwhat they don't realize is that this condition if it gets serious and long term, it's goingto be a major problem. And then there is no more laughing. Then there is crying. A stitchin time saves nine.
The Microbiome Diet Populating Friendly Bacteria For Optimal Health Saturday Strategy
We have over a hundred trillion bacteria cellsin our body and they can either be your best friend or your worst enemy. Today I wannashow you how to turn them into your best friend. If you've done yoyo diets, I'm talkingabout the paleo, the DrewCan, the bread diet, the cookie diet, the Atkins diet, whateverdiet you've done and you've gone on this weight loss roller coaster over and over andover again then this tutorial is very important for you to watch. You see today, I'm gonnashow you four recipes out of a book that I've just read called the microbiome diet. It'sby Kellman and in Kellman's book he lays out the best food, the best diet foryour microbiome. We've been talking about
the gut for a while now. 95 percent of theserotonin comes from your gut that's that happy molecule. Your gut biome changes every20 minutes that's why it's absolutely crucial to give it the food that it needsthat loves your body back. See most of us feed our microbiome and the gut nasty foodthat shape shifts your gut biome and then requires you to crave that nasty unhealthyfood that you're constantly sabotaging your diet with. You have these erratic cravings.These up and down moods and everything is in the gut. So here's some quick facts aboutmicrobiome. You have three pounds of bacteria in your body. Bacteria outnumbers your cellsnine to one! Our good bacteria helps us utilize
all the nutrients from the food that we eat.Our good bacteria has influence on our immunity, our mood, our hormones, our metabolism anda lot of other things in our body. So if you're addicted to chocolate, cookies, bread, icecream, things that you know you probably shouldn't be eating all of the time, guess whaté It'snot your fault. It's actually not you, it's that bad bacteria that's teamed up againstyou. They' become bullies on the inside and they're actually forcing your cravings.They're forcing you to eat that stuff so as soon as we feed the allies that good bacteriain your body the cravings will slowly start to drift away. So how do we start changingité Well we got to start changing what we're
putting in and Kellman states it's sogracefully in his book on microbiome diet. Number one you got to eat a lot of fresh fruitsand veggies. Number two is to eat a lot of prebiotics. As you probably already know likemost people do, prebiotics are the food that feeds your probiotics. And what are theyéNumber one Jerusalem artichokes, asparagus, carrots, garlic, jicama, leeks, onions, radishes,tomatoes and other soluble fibers. Fermented foods are absolutely imperative as well becausethey're loaded with probiotics. We got kimchi, sauerkraut and the different things that Ipersonally absolutely love and I know you probably do as well. And lastly he talks aboutprobiotics. Probiotics are one of the most
important things that you can take on a dailybasis to start feeding your good gut bacteria. So we spent a lot of time recently comingup with the ten best bacterial strains on the planet so that can really start to feedyour good friends in your body and you can really start to absorb the nutrients thatmaybe you're not absorbing now. You see the average person eats 4,000 calories a dayin America but they're still hungry, they're still starving. And the reason they're starvingis because they're not getting the enzymes, the nutrients, the aminos, different thingsthat are in the food that we eat. So they continue to eat meat, they continue to gainthe weight but they feel like they're hungry
all the time. I want you to feel satisfied.I don't want your brain to be turned on thinking about what's coming for lunch justafter you finish dinner because what does that do it doesn't allow you to be present.And I know if you're watching this maybe you have kids, maybe you have a friend thatyou see once in a while, maybe your significant other and the best moments that you've hadtogether is when you're not on your cellphone checking it, you're not thinking about whatyou have to do that weekend. You're right there in the moment, awareness is an alltimehigh. You're totally resonate with that person in front of you and you're communicatingon an authentic level. I want that for you
Is Buttermilk Good On Candida Diet
Greetings. Eric Bakker, naturopath from NewZealand, author of Candida Crusher and formulator of the Canxida range of dietary supplements.I've got a question today from a patient over in Japan. I get a few questions from Japanesepeople about buttermilk. This person wants to know if buttermilk is any good for someonewith a Candida yeast infection. Buttermilk is a very good product. Traditionally,it used to be milk that was left over after cheese making. But today, it's actually not.It's actually almost like a milk produced a bit like yogurt is. They'll add bacteriaor maybe lactic acid to it to give it like a sour kind of flavor. Buttermilk is actuallyvery good to have. Just bear in mind if you've
got a milk allergy, it may be a problem becauseit will still contain the beta casein protein in it, and that can affect your immune system.If you have a milk allergy like me, then it's probably not really a good idea to have buttermilkin your diet. If you don't have a milk allergy, however,there's nothing wrong with having some buttermilk in your diet from time to time, because it'squite a healthy food to have. It's got a nice tangy flavor about it. And again, common sense.If you've got a bad yeast infection, you need to avoid dairy products for quite a whilebecause they can really challenge your immune system. Just take these foods out initiallyfor the first month or so.
The low allergy diet or phase two of my Candidadiet includes the removal of cow's milk from the diet and usually yogurt as well. If you'vegot a major allergy for dairy products, then you want to take out cow's milk, yogurt, cream,and these sorts of things from your diet. Butter is generally always fine. I've neverseen butter allergies. You need to be cautious with cheese, too, if you've got a strong cow'smilk allergy. If you know you've got an allergy toward cow's milk or dairy, avoid buttermilk.If you don't have it, you can incorporate small amounts into your diet.However, to be safe as you're going through the stages of the Candida Crusher diet, thefirst stage is the MEVY diet, the meat, eggs,
vegetables, and yogurt. The second stage isthe low allergy diet and I usually take out things like buttermilk, cream, a lot of cheesesfrom the diet for a month or so, four to six weeks to allow the immune system a bit ofbreathing space. Because many people with Candida, in fact, have got leaky gut syndromeand buttermilk will not be good for people trying to recover from leaky gut.Yes, it is a good food. But you need to be cautious with it. If you know you've got anallergy, avoid it. Otherwise, incorporate small amounts into your diet and see how yougo. I hope that answers your question. Last thing I'll leave you with is buttermilkdoes have almost as good as yogurt a beneficial
effect on the intestinal tract for encouragingthe proliferation of good bacteria, especially if it's an organic buttermilk or one that'scertified organic or biodynamic and made using the correct organic methods, it's beneficial.Thanks for your attention.
