Gut Healing Protocol:
The digestive system is central the health of the body. It is the way that all nutrition enters the body. It is also the primary way that waste products exit the body. When the digestive system doesn’t work properly, illness can result. A majority of the immune system is located along the digestive tract, which is another important reason to pay attention to gut health. By supporting the gut, the entire body is supported. Our gut healing protocol provides nutrients that support the integrity and repair of the gut lining. It also provides probiotics and enzymes that support the gut’s ability to properly breakdown food. You will see the best results when you combine our protocol with a gut healing diet.

Dietary suggestions for gut health:
- Avoid all processed foods, especially sugars and simple starches. Sugars and simple starches are the preferred food source for pathogens that often inhabit the gut like bad bacteria, Candida fungus and parasites. It will be easier to rid the body of these pathogens if you are not constantly feeding them.
- Avoid grains of all kinds (wheat, rye, spelt, corn, and rice). Grains are difficult to properly digest and most people with poor gut function experience major improvements in their health when grains are eliminated.
- Eat plenty of healthful fats, including: butter, coconut oil, olive oil, avocados, walnut oil, flaxseed oil, fish oil, etc. Avoid all hydrogenated fats and processed oils like: Crisco, margarine, soybean oil, cottonseed oil, corn oil, “salad” oil, etc. Avoid eating fried foods in restaurants as these are mostly prepared using low quality oils that are highly inflammatory.
- Eat quality protein like wild seafood, pastured meats, wild game, pastured eggs, organic poultry, etc. Quality counts!
- Eat plenty of vegetables! Healthy vegetables include: leafy greens, asparagus, broccoli, cucumbers, artichokes, green beans, carrots, lettuce, cabbage, etc. Vegetables provide fiber and water which help promote good elimination and detoxification.
- Eat low sugar fruits like apples and berries.
- Dairy, especially pasteurized dairy, can be very inflammatory and cause the gut to produce a lot of mucous. Consider going dairy-free (except for butter). Healthy dairy-free milks include: almond, hemp and coconut milks.
- Eat nuts and seeds, but avoid peanuts.
- Avoid soy in all its forms
- Add raw, cultured foods like sauerkraut, kim chi and non-dairy kefir. These foods provide large amounts of good bacteria and will help to restore gut integrity.
- Bone broth is an excellent food for the gut. It contains collagen which helps heal the gut lining and it is a good source of minerals.
Drink plenty of pure, clean water. Hydration is essential to keep the bowels moving properly.
