To understand what leaky gut is you must visualize your intestines as a mesh bag with very fine holes.
Your digestive tract is responsible for allowing the absorption of nutrients from your food to the your blood stream. These small holes are designed to allow the “good” nutrients in while keeping the “harmful” stuff like toxins, undigested food particles, and bacteria out.
Due to high inflammatory diets (consisting of sugar, gluten, artificial colors and sweeteners etc.), high levels of cortisol due to stress, and the toxins in our environments, these small mesh holes begin to widen.
As these holes widen this protective barrier is compromised allowing “foreign” things into your blood stream and creating immune reactions in your body. These reactions create inflammation which has been linked to all types of chronic diseases and symptoms.
The most common problems a leaky gut creates are:
Because undigested food particles are more likely to enter the blood stream with a leaky gut, your immune system begins to create antibodies against that food.
As a result, your immune system is put in “overdrive” every time you consume this food creating a myriad of symptoms including bloating, constipation, IBS, arthritis, eczema, psoriasis, depression, anxiety, migraine headaches, and pain and inflammation in your joints.
Our gut is full of “good”and friendly bacteria that help us properly break down and digest our food. They help keep our gut in check and prevent ‘bad’ bacteria from overgrowth.
Unfortunately, these friendly bacteria can be depleted and disrupted by taking antibiotics, steroids, acid-blocking medications, eating a poor diet, and many other factors. Taking a highly concentrated dose (25-100 billion units a day) of probiotics on a daily basis can help you regain a healthy balance of bacteria in your gut.
1.Pre-biotics help good bacteria grow..oats, garlic, onion.
2.Bad bacteria feed on sugar-simple starch..fats ..dairy..gluten...STARVE THEM
Get 1 carrot /1 cucumber /spring onion always handy...when hungry ..grate or put in mixer coarsely grind..add powdered oats..or egg make pancake and eat..
3.Prepare chutney-side dish with sesame seeds/green coriander/ garlic/salt/lemon juice
1 cup white sesame seeds or til
1 bunch coriander leaves
5 garlic cloves
3 green chillies
3 tbsp lemon juice
Salt, to taste
1. Dry roast the sesame seeds on a pan for five minutes, at a medium to low flame.
2. Shift the roasted sesame seeds to a mixie jar or food processor, along with the coriander leaves, garlic and green chillies.
3. Grind to a fine paste by gradually adding lemon juice. Taste for salt, and serve the chutney.
4.Keep some fruits handy.
5.Coffee also depletes good bacteria/ avoid having it very strong or with food.
6.Look for brown rice crackers, rice cakes ...keep them as snacks with green chutney...alwys have something to snack..even if you get the salty monaco biscuits otherwise the binge craving will stay...slowly oats will change the cell structure and it will not feel the need for sugar and simple carbs
7.White rice and noodles can be boiled and kept in fridge..the starch changes into resistant starch.
8.Tahini paste/ sesame seed paste ..can be added in rice noodles or added to chutney
9.Breathe the cortisol out .
10.A very good Vit B 12 supplement
HEAL THE GUT --IT WILL START SHOWING RESULTS IN VERY SUBTLE WAYS --SLOWLY ALL THE FOOD ITEMS CAN BE INTRODUCED AS THE INTERNAL LINING OF THE GUT GETS STRONGER
