How to heal a leaky gut

A leaky gut often means you need to heal something else first. That said, the abnormally permeable intestinal lining participates in a vicious cycle, and needs to be addressed directly as well.

Ask your healthcare practitioner if a leaky gut test (available from Genova diagnostics) might be appropriate for you. I have found these to be useful in some situations, but since the condition can be transient and episodic (as with histamine sensitivity, binge drinking, and bouts of stress), the test can miss it. Often, clinical history and presentation is enough to go on.

RepairVite™ Diet

repairviteTake a deep breath, because if you're a foodie like me, this is the part that is going to suck. I'll go ahead and be Bad News Bear because as science shows, the worst offenders that your immune system probably has red flags about are your very favorites. Below is a quick summary of what to eat and what not to eat!

 

 

 

 

 

Avoid:
  • Sugars: including corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, molasses, honey, chocolate, candy, etc.
  • High Glycemic Fruits: including watermelon, mango, pineapple, raisins, and canned fruits.
  • Grains: including gluten, wheat, oats, rice, barley, buckwheat, soy, corn, wheat germ, spelt, amaranth, kamut, millet, quinoa, etc.
  • Gluten-containing compounds: including processed salad dressings, ketchup, soy sauce, barbecue sauces, condiments, modified food starch, etc.
  • Dairy: including milk, whey, eggs, cheeses, creams, mayonnaise, etc.
  • Soy: including soy milk, soy sauce, soy protein, etc.
  • Alcohol: including beer, wine, sake, cognac, liqueurs, etc.
  • Lectins: including nuts, beans, soy, potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, peanut oil, soy oil, etc.
  • Coffee, Processed Foods, Canned Foods

    Make sure you eat:

    • LOTS of Vegetables: including asparagus, spinach, lettuce, broccoli, beets, cauliflower, carrots, celery, artichokes, garlic, onions, zucchini, squash, rhubarb, cucumbers, turnips, watercress, etc. No tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, and mushrooms.
    • Low Glycemic Fruits: apricots, plums, apples, peaches, pears, cherries, berries, etc.
    • Meats: including fish*, chicken, beef, lamb, organ meats, etc.
    • Bone broths: ­ these have strong healing super­powers, they are full of collagen and minerals and other nutrients that give your gut what it needs to heal. 
    • Fermented Foods: including sauerkraut, kimchi, pickled ginger, mixed pickle, coconut yogurt, kombucha tea, etc.
    • Enough good fats: including coconut oil, coconut butter, coconut milk, olives, olive oil, nut butters and sun butter are OK just not actual nuts.
    • Stay Hydrated: water and herbal teas. Look for  herbal teas with calendula, marshmallow and gotu kola, and extracts of licorice. They can be used to support the intestinal mucosa. Caffeinated tea is ok in moderation.

    If you are allergic to any foods, inform your healthcare practitioner and avoid using those foods during this program.

    *Select fish which is less prone to heavy metal contamination.

      B complex

      Love the b complex, couldn’t find it elsewhere easily

      Yes, this dries up poison oak.

      I tried it after the rash did not go away for 2 weeks. It rapidly retreated, and gone.

      LOVE!

      Tried the lavender moisture cream this morning and it went on so beautifully, easy and almost satin-like. My face feels so nourished, soft it feels so good. Best moisturizer I have applied in a very long time.

      Astaxanthin

      This is my first time trying this product, and because I am taking it for inflammatory joint pain, I have seen some definite alleviation of my discomfort since I started taking it over a week ago. I am also taking it with Tumeric and Resveratrol (all three formulas twice a day), so I am not sure weather my relief is totally due to the Astaxanthin or the combination of herbs. Still I will continue along this path, since it is very much helping my hips and lower back. I would recommend others give it a try and if needed add the two additional anti-inflammatory combinations. I find it a better alternative to NSAIDs and other meds that cause gastric issues.

      NERVE BALM IS AWESOME!!

      NERVE BALM IS THE BEST PRODUCT THAT I HAVE FOUND TO WORK ON MY NEUROPATHIC PAIN AND I AM GLAD MY CHIRPRACTOR INTRODUCED TO ME THIS PRODUCT. THANK YOU.
