Leaky Gut Syndrome Causes Symptoms Risk Factors How To Reverse Leaky Gut
Thanks for checking out this comprehensivetutorial today. In this tutorial, I'm going to talk about leaky gut syndrome. It's a functionalcomplaint that's often been maligned by medical practitioners. Before I delve into it, I justwant to read out an email I got from a firstyear medical student from America regarding leakygut. I wrote an article on EricBakker regardingleaky gut, and this is what this particular student wrote. She says, quot;Mr. Bakker, leakygut syndrome is pure naturopathic nonsense. It's just like adrenal fatigue, just anotherfictitious manmade disease. Many people confuse adrenal fatigue with Addison's disease, whichis an actual, real and diagnosable medical
condition when you don't make enough cortisolin your glands. This can only be diagnosed by your real , and various tests areneeded to diagnose this disease. Candida is bullshit, too. It is possible to have a fullbody fungal infection, but you'd be in the intensive care unit nearly dead.' Signed,Miss so and so. This is a very interesting email from a person,obviously a firstyear medical student, so I'll forgive her for her ignorance. When Iwas a medical student, I was quite ignorant, too, and had a lot of strong opinions aboutthings which I know now 27 years later I've got completely different ideas about. It'sinteresting and I think back at my dad who
was a very pragmatic man, and Dad said thatopinions are like bowel motions. We all have them from time to time. Sometimes some peoplehave more or less. Sometimes people are full of these things and just pass out bowel motionsall the time. Almost like verbal diarrhea. And that's what we've got in this case. Aperson with verbal diarrhea. So I'll forgive this person, of course, because she's a medicalstudent. And if she happens to see this YouTube clip, I welcome her to contact me when she'squalified and maybe 10 years down the track when she's settled into a practice a bit moreand overcome a little bit of that verbal diarrhea. Let's now have a look at leaky gut syndrome,what the condition really entails. Leaky gut
syndrome is not a fictitious disease. In fact,there are many different research papers in mainstream medical journals that have beenwritten about intestinal permeability. It's certainly not fictitious by any means. Whenwe examine the small intestine, there are three sections to the small intestine. Thefirst part, which connects up to the stomach, is called the duodenum. And in America, Ibelieve they call it the duodenum. The duodenum contains quite a lot of intense solar activitythere in terms of digestion. In fact, there's a very small section at the beginning of theduodenum which is about 75 to 90 mils that contains most of the person's immune functionactivity of the whole digestive system. We're
talking about probably three or four inchesof bowel, which is impacted with an incredible amount of immune cells.It's estimated that about 60 percent of a person's immune activity is located in thesmall intestine, and probably three quarters of that is in the first three to four inchesof that section of small intestine. If we examine the small intestine and open it up,it has a surface area of about a tennis court. It's remarkable. You may see some pictureson the internet of what we call villi and microvilli. Villi are basically, I'll drawa picture for you. They're small, funny shaped objects like this. That's a villi and a villilooks a little bit like that. Microvilli are
basically the little projections that runoff the villi. You can see those. If you have a look closer, we've actually got even smallervilli that run off those. The point I'm making here is the surface area is dramatically increasedbecause we've got a huge amount of digestive area that we're looking at.If you look at the microvilli, little fingerlike projections, there's basically one cell layerthat goes around the microvilli. These cellular junctions in a healthy person are very tightand wellcontrolled spaces. And the body does this to allow very well digested particlesof proteins, carbohydrates and fats to get through to the circulatory system. These foodcomponents have to be broken down to the tiniest
How to Cure Acne 4 Secrets to Naturally Getting Rid of Acne Forever
Hey, guys, Axe here from DrAxe . TodayI'm going to share with you my four secrets to get rid of acne forever. I'll tell you,this is probably going to be the most effective acne treatment plan you will ever hear inyour life. I'm going to break down top foods to get rid of acne, the top supplements toget rid of acne, the top face wash. Also, the top foods you must get out of your dietimmediately if you want to get rid of your acne for good. One of the main causes of acne today is thebuildup of bad bacteria, yeast and candida in your gut and digestive tract. So if we'regoing to cure candida forever, if we're going
to cure acne forever, there are a few thingsthat you must do. Let me also say this. What are some of the causes of thisé You may sayto yourself, quot;I don't know what caused my acne. I don't know what necessarily causedbad bacteria to grow on my body,quot; which again is a major causative factor. I can tell youthis right now. If you have been exposed to or taken antibiotic drugs in the past thatcan be a major causative factor. If you've taken birth control pills, if you've drankchlorinated and fluorinated water, if you've consumed too much sugar, all of these thingscan increase the growth of bad bacteria, yeast and candida within your body.
So let's talk about our number one secretfor getting rid of acne for good. Remove these three foods. Number one, you've got to getsugar out of your diet. Sugar feeds yeast and it feeds candida, so we've got to getthe sugar out of your diet. I recommend getting sugar out and replacing it with stevia. Steviais an allnatural, lowcaloriesno calorie sweetener that you can use instead. So usestevia. If you want to use something that actually has sugar and you're baking or cooking,use raw honey. Raw honey is going to be your best overall sweetener with sugar if you'retrying to get rid of acne. The next food you must get out of your dietto overcome acne is reducing your grain intake,
especially gluten. Gluten can cause inflammationof your intestinal tract. When you have inflammation of your gut it actually shows up on your skin.A lot of people think when you have acne or a problem like eczema, that's just a skinissue. No, that's an intestine issue, that's a gut issue. If we can heal your gut, if wecan kill of the bad bacteria, your acne and problems like eczema would disappear forever. So number one foodwise, get rid of the sugarout of your diet. I'm also talking about really lowering your fruit intake as well, reallyonly consuming berries in moderation for a time being. Lowering your fruit intake, gettingrid of grains or lowering grains, or at least
going gluten free with your grains. And thenthe last thing here is staying away from hydrogenated oils. Obviously, bad fats increase the amountof oil your sebaceous glands on your skin really start to produce. So again, gettingthose bad fats out. If you can do those dietary changes, get thesugar out. Rather than using grains, using products with coconut flour or almond flourare good options rather than hydrogenated oils. Switching over to coconut oil is a greatoption for getting rid of acne. Let's talk about the top foods you've gotto start eating to get rid of your acne for good. Three main foods you want to be gettingin your diet; number one, foods that are high
in fiber. Fiber can actually reduce acne andactually kills off bad bacteria in your gut, increases the growth of good bacteria knownas probiotics which is very important. So fiber is really important to get in your diet.Your best sources of fiber are going to be seeds like chia seeds and flaxseeds, alsonuts like almonds. Those are some great options. And then vegetables. Vegetables and sproutednuts and seeds will help you get rid of acne. Another important aspect of getting rid ofacne for good is balancing out your blood sugar levels. If you're consuming a lot ofsugar it's going to cause your blood sugar to go up and down. That causes bad bacteriato grow, also causing acne. So the next nutritional
