Leaky Gut Syndrome Fasting

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

Is Fasting Healthy

Hey guys. Axe here, Functional MedicineSpecialist and Nutritionist and founder of DrAxe . Today I want to talk about, isfasting healthyé And this is a common question that I get. There are really popular diettrends and fads out there today asking that question. How about intermittent fasting orfasting in generalé And I can tell you this, fasting can be great for your health but ifit's done wrong, fasting can be dangerous and fasting can have side effects. So you want to fast in the right way, so letme talk about all the benefits of fasting. First off, fasting allows your body to rest.In fact, the father of natural medicine, Hippocrates,

one of his number one ways he helped patientsheal was through fasting. Also, throughout books like the Bible, that's been used forcenturies for spiritual enlightenment and for growing closer to God and for the healthbenefits. And also we know many s throughout time, and there are a lot of studies now showingthat things like intermittent fasting can naturally boost our hormones, can also letyour gut rest and so really supports detoxification healing. So there is no doubt about it thatfasting is healthy. When you fast, the way you want to fast isa few ways. One way is you can do full day fast or several days so you can fast one dayor three days, and that may include where

you only eat dinner or possibly what you'redoing is you're doing like a vegetable juice fast where you're just doing some juices.Or it might be something where you're just drinking water for a few days. And doing thatfor short periods of time is completely fine, it's completely healthy. There's therapeuticbenefits. Now, there are other forms of fasting where you would do that more than three days,and at that point it can actually end up being pretty hard on your body and your system.So at that point it's not really beneficial for your health doing it for a longer periodof time, where you're completely restricting your body of calories.

Now there's a new type of fasting that I thinka lot of people are benefitting from today. It's called intermittent fasting. Even withthis sort of fasting you don't want to overdo it and do it too long, but you can do thisanywhere from a period of 30 to 90 days and get major health benefits. And, here's whatintermittent fasting is. Intermittent fasting is where you're taking a period of the dayand you're not eating. So most the time we wake up, we eat at 7:00 a.m., we continueto eat until 10:00 p.m. And so really we're only letting our body rest, sometimes eighthours a night. What you want to do instead is really take a four to eighthour windowand only eat during that time. So intermittent

fasting, your first meal might be lunch atnoon and then you eat again at 6:00, so really you're eating between noon and 6:00, gettingall your meals in then. And you can eat three meals; one at noon, one at three, one at six.And then the rest of the time you're letting your body rest. So you're getting the benefitsof fasting, of letting your body rest. At the same time you are getting nutrients duringthat time. Now when you're doing intermittent fastingyou want to make sure that you're getting plenty of healthy protein, fat, fiber andnutrientdense fruits and vegetables in your diet during that time to make sure you'regetting plenty of nutrients. But intermittent

fasting has been shown in some cases, whenexercising, for men and women, to increase human growth hormone by 400%. So it can begreat for hormones. It's great because it lets your digestive system rest. In fact,if you struggle with constipation or diarrhea or any sort of bowel issues or leaky gut syndrome,intermittent fasting can definitely be beneficial. Now you don't want to overdo it. You wantto listen to your body, but as I've said benefits of fasting can include weight loss, hormonebalance, improved digestion, detoxification. There are many benefits of fasting. Again,you don't want to overdo it. Fasting is created to be done on a periodic basis, not for anentire life. But again there are major benefits

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
