Foods To Avoid On Leaky Gut Diet
Greetings. It's Eric Bakker, naturopath fromNew Zealand, author of Candida Crusher and formulator of a range of products called Canxida.Thanks for checking out this tutorial. I've got a question here from a guy on YouTube calledPro Chess Player. 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,
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
Natural Treatments for Lupus
Hey, guys, Axe here, of naturalmedicine and Founder of DrAxe . In this tutorial, I'm going to talk about lupus naturaltreatments and natural cures for lupus. So I'll go over the best supplements for lupus,the best food specifically and then food that will probably surprise you, but foods thatyou absolutely want to stay away from. Lupus is an inflammatory condition that can affectthe entire body including muscles, tissues and organs. And also it's an autoimmune diseasein nature. An autoimmune disease is where your body's own immune system starts attackingorgans that it should never attack in the first place. But here's the good news. I'veworked with thousands of patients with autoimmune
disease and many of those with lupus and we'veseen complete recoveries in many of those patients. So let's go ahead and jump. I'm going to start with supplements, thengo into diet and then foods you should stay from. So first off, if you have lupus, thereare five supplements that are the best to take. The number one supplement is going tobe Vitamin D3. Vitamin D level, Vitamin D specifically, it's not just a vitamin, it'sknown as a pro hormone. It's essential for balancing hormones in the body but also formodulating your immune system and that's really the key in overcoming any or autoimmune issue,but especially one like lupus, is we've got
to help balance out how you're immune systemis functioning and so vitamin D is critical. You can go and get a vitamin D test, but here'sthe truth, over 80% of people are vitamin D deficient and I would guess over 90% ofpeople with autoimmune disease or more are vitamin D deficient. So it's almost a mustthat you should get vitamin D. I recommend 5,000 IUs twice a day for one month and thenafter that, 5,000 IUs a day. And best if you can go and get sunshine that day. That's idealfor about 30 minutes directly on your skin. That's what you want to do and during thosedays, you don't need to take the supplement, but, ideally, vitamin D supplements, numberone.
The number two supplement is going to be collagenprotein powder. Now, collagen is the main ingredient in bone broth and it contains theamino acid proline. Now, the root cause of lupus is a condition called leaky gut syndrome.Really lupus, an autoimmune disease, it starts in the gut with leaky gut. So we've got torepair your gut if we want to heal lupus. And so collagen protein powder and amino acidslike glutamine help repair the digestive tract. The number three supplement you should betaking for lupus is frankincense essential oil. Frankincense has been used for thousandsof years and it contains an antioxidant called Boswellia and Boswellia is one of the mostpowerful natural antiinflammatories in the
world. So start using frankincense essentialoil. What I recommend is you get a bottle of frankincense oil and just rub it all overyour body but specifically your neck and your forehead and just a little bit under yournose. Also, one other thing you can do is do two drops of frankincense on your thumband rub it on the roof of your mouth twice a day. Frankincense essential oil, again,helps balance out the immune system, which is critical. Also, there's a really unique study done onlupus and they found that those with lupus tend to have low stomach acid. And if youhave low stomach acid, there are a few things
you can do. One is eat smaller meals. Anotherthing is be rested while you eat and chew more. Another thing is do a little bit ofapple cider vinegar and water. But, from a supplement standpoint, digestive enzymes andalso taking something called HCL, that's hydrochloric acid. So again, digestive enzymes are the firstthing I would take. I'd take two to three capsules with meals, especially if you'reconsuming a meat product. And if you are consuming meat as well, you might try one or two capsulesof HCL with pepsin. And then, last but not least, probiotics. You know probiotics arecritical for crowding yeast out of the body,
