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
The GAPS Diet
Hey, guys. Axe here, of naturalmedicine and founder of DrAxe . Today I'm going to talk to you about the GAPS Diet.The GAPS diet is one of my favorite diets out there. It was started by Natasha Campbell,MD from the UK, and it is very effective in treating conditions such as learning disorderslike ADHD and other learning disorders such as autism. Also, it's very effective at helpingpeople heal from leaky gut, autoimmune disease and other sorts of issues that are neurologicalor immunerelated in nature. I can tell you that what you're going to learnin this tutorial is this diet is very, very effective and it doesn't have to be that difficult.In fact, I think the GAPS diet can be simple
if you're willing to go through and learnjust a few simple recipes along the way. Essentially, what the GAPS diet is it's adiet that's easy to digest. It's really focused on, it's very similar to a traditional diet,but this is where grains are eliminated. This is a grainfree diet. It's high in amino acids,high in healthy fatty acids, and very low in sugar and carbohydrates. There are different stages. There are actuallysix stages to the GAPS diet. I'm going to start talking about stage one and then talkabout the full stage, the final stage here and if want to learn more and get the fullsix stages you can visit my website, DrAxe ,
or just search my name online, Axe, it'sDRAXE, and then look up GAPS diet on Google and you'll find plenty of information thereas well. The first thing they recommend is consumingbone broth. Now, bone broth is packed with amino acids like proline, glycine, glutamineand arginine. Lproline is the amino acid that helps really tighten up your skin aswell as your gut tissue, so when your skin starts to sag as you age, proline helps intightening up your skin. It also helps in repairing leaky gut, which is the root causeof all autoimmune disease today, and food allergies. If you want to overcome or healfrom any condition, we know all disease begins
in the gut so you've got to heal leaky gut. When it comes to the GAPS diet, one of thebest things you can do is consume bone broth. The way that you make bone broth is takingthe necks, backs or feet of chickens, put them in a crock pot and you simply let themcook for 24 hours in a crock pot. Add in a tablespoon or two of apple cider vinegar.That starts to pull out those amino acids in the liquid. You then discard the tissues,you just keep the liquid, and there you have chicken broth. You can do the same thing withbeef bones and that also can be high in proline. Again, that's the first thing you want todo, make some broth.
Broth is also high in glycine which helpssupport liver detoxification which is crucial in healing and balancing the immune system.Also, Lglutamine is found in broth, and glutamine has been shown to help repair a damaged intestinallining which is crucial as well. So again, the primary food on the GAPS diet is bonebroth. After that it's organic meat, so what you'regoing to do is you're going to have your bone broth, whether it's chicken or beef broth,you're then going to add in some organic meat, whether that's chicken or beef, and that proteinis easy to digest and doesn't affect the immune system. Another great food to add in. Andthen vegetables, whether that's broccoli,
cauliflower, or cabbage. My favorite to putin chicken vegetable soup is going to be celery, carrots and onions, but any type of vegetableis fine to add in there. That's going to be the main meal. If you'reon stage one of the GAPS diet it's going to be bone broth, meat and vegetables, slowcookedover the period of 24 hours, or at least 12 hours. That's going to be the main meal, andyou're going to try and eat that as many meals as possible. After a few weeks, typically two weeks onthat stage one of GAPS diet, you're going to add in some other things like a littlebit of sauerkraut juice or some probioticrich
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
