Now that we talked about the importance of healing our gut, let’s get to the endless confusion of what to do and what not to do and/or eat. There are so many gut-healing diets, it can get confusing as to which one is right for you.
Again, my approach is focused on what is the easiest, most cost- and time-effective way to heal. Everyone is different. Start with the key basics and then adjusting as you need to. What all the gut-healing plans have in common is the importance of changing your diet.
To heal your digestive system, putting out the fire in the gut is the critical first step. – Tweet this!
You will need to first stop putting gasoline on the fire by avoiding all the foods that are likely to be causing problems,
I have my patients remove all grains, dairy, sugar, processed foods and GMOs, even removing any chronic infections you may have.
You’ll then take steps to restore a healthy balance of bacteria, replenish nutrients by eating vegetables, clean protein and healthy fats, and making sure you are properly hydrated. Pre-populate with prebiotics and probiotics, repair the lining of the gut with bone broth, and other gut healing supplements like vitamin D and fish oil, and generally rebalance your system with gratitude, keeping people around you that love you and lift you up, keeping sleep a priority, incorporating a daily stress management technique and detoxification.
Remember this is not forever. Right now, doctors are telling you that you have to live with this condition the rest of your life…
I am telling you that rebalancing the bacteria in your gut and healing the intestinal lining; you can reduce the inflammation throughout the body and improve your overall health! – Tweet this!
