You hear so much talk about gut health and how important it is to your immune system and your health in general. The gut is known as the second brain. If your gut is not healthy, your brain is not healthy.
What is Leaky Gut?
Through the typical standard American diet and the toxins that we are exposed to every day, most people suffer from what’s called Leaky Gut. Leaky Gut is where the integrity of the intestinal walls is compromised and holes are created in those walls. As a result, foreign particles leak into the blood and create a systemic inflammatory response, and most diseases are caused by inflammation.
Diseases like IBS, Crohn’s disease, arthritis, ADHD, Alzheimer’s, autism, depression, anxiety, pain, hormonal imbalances, and thyroid disease are all linked to inflammation and Leaky Gut. What’s more, if the gut is inflamed, nutrients that you ingest cannot be absorbed.
And, to make matters worse, by eating the wrong foods, such as gluten, breads, pastas, sugar, and cereals, they steal some of the little nutrients you have in your body. They are actually “anti-nutrients!” If you are suffering from issues such as constipation, joint pain, brain fog, depression, ADHD, bloat, nutrient malabsorption, fatigue, skin breakouts or rashes, you are probably suffering from a Leaky Gut.
So How Can Diet Heal a Leaky Gut?
If you are suffering from any of these symptoms, there is hope! I truly believe that every chronic disease is reversible. Through a low-carb diet, you can start reducing inflammation throughout the body. When you add in some supplements to help speed up the process, the inflammation is eliminated even quicker.
These Are My Top 10 Tips To Improve Leaky Gut:
1. Eat a Low Carb Diet
The first thing to do is eliminate sugar, vegetable oils, breads, and processed carbs immediately. Try to focus on eating green veggies, organic animal proteins such as eggs, steak, chicken, lamb and wild fish, and add in healthy fats such as olive oil, avocado, nuts, and coconut oil.
The goal is to limit carbs to 20 grams a day. When you eat enough fat and protein, you will feel satiated, your blood sugar will stabilize and your appetite will be suppressed. Some people need to eliminate even vegetables that have lectins which can cause Leaky Gut, as the body sees lectins as a threat to the body. Some of these vegetables include the nightshades like eggplant, tomatoes, and peppers. Other foods with lectins are grains, gluten, beans, cucumbers and squash. Make sure to eat enough quality salt and hydrate with plenty of water.
This means you are squeezing your meal time within a 4-8 hour period of the day. This gives your gut a break and allows it to relax and start healing itself. It will help stabilize your blood sugar and insulin levels, allowing you to have sustained even energy throughout the day and improve sleep.
3. Use Accelerated Keto
This supplement puts you into fat burning mode within 30 minutes so that your cravings for sugar and carbs go away. As a result, your body starts to learn to burn its own fat for fuel, reduces the inflammation that comes from sugar and carbs, and gives you amazing sustained mental and physical energy.
4. Take Ion Gut Health
This supplement heals Leaky Gut as it goes into the intestinal lining and provides the nutrients to patch up the holes and improve the environment for the microbiome to proliferate in a healthy way.
5. Take Latero Flora
This supplement is called an FBO or soil based organisms. Its job is to go through the intestines and kill the bad bacteria and candida including salmonella, E.coli, and fungus. It brings balance back into the microbiome.
6. Take Probiotics
When you are taking ion gut health, which provides the environment for good bacteria and microbiome to proliferate in balance, you don’t need a probiotic everyday. However, taking a probiotic three times a week will encourage the growth of the healthy bacteria in the gut.
7. Take Acceleradine Iodine
Iodine is known to kill parasites, bacteria, and viruses that are not meant to be in the body. Those foreign pathogens could be creating issues that lead to Leaky Gut. Not only will Acceleradine help with your gut health, but it will improve your thyroid and Metabolism health, help reverse Hashimoto’s, and improve mental clarity. It is able to cross the blood brain barrier and actually kick out toxins such as fluoride out of the brain which is a contributor to brain fog. Iodine deficiency is known to be the number one predictor of depression and brain fog.
8. Take Accelerated Detox Powder at night
This organic formula coats the stomach and intestinal lining, reduces inflammation, helps with bloat and regularity, and alleviates issues like Crohn’s disease and Colitis. It also soaks up all of the toxins through the day that can cause leaky gut. As the inflammation is decreased, absorption of nutrients is improved.
9. Have 2-3 Bowel Movements a Day with Laxa Comfort
If you are constipated, toxins are continuously reabsorbed by the system, wreaking havoc on the Gut and the health of the whole body. Constipation is linked to many diseases including Diverticulitis, Kidney Disease, Colorectal and Gastric Cancer, Ischemic Colitis, Parkinson’s Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and Irritable Bowel Disease. Laxa Comfort gently and naturally stimulates bowel movements. Regardless of how constipated you are, this will make having 2-3 movements a day occur consistently.
10. Take Ecophage
Many suffer from something called SIBO, or Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth. This is a condition where too much good and bad bacteria find their way into the small intestine where they don’t belong. Bacteriophages, like EcoPhage™ selectively target specific, harmful bacteria while leaving beneficial microbes to flourish. Bacteriophages are especially beneficial when used in conjunction with a probiotic, because they act like advanced troops to clear the way for beneficial bacteria to flourish. Laboratory studies show that when probiotics and phages are used in combination, beneficial bacteria grow to thousands of times their baseline rate.
