I am so excited about a new course I have been taking called, “Healing Leaky Gut” by Dr. Axe. For 13 years I have been saying that “health begins in the colon” and have worked with so many clients to improve and heal their digestive systems and as a result improve their health. But I must say this course has taken my knowledge to the next level and with new protocols, a unique and individualized perspective on gut typing, easy and really good recipes and practical nutrition and lifestyle tips, I want to help you heal your gut so you can take your body and health to a whole new level this year.
The truth is, so many of our symptoms, illnesses, diseases we experience in the body and mind, stem from impaired gut function and oftentimes a leaky gut. Even Hippocrates said, “All disease begins in the gut.” Leaky gut is when the intestinal lining (the gateway between the small intestine and bloodstream), gets damaged and forms holes in the tight junctions due to a variety of reasons such as antibiotics, medications, excess sugar and grains, chemicals in food, GMO foods, and emotional stress. Toxins, microbes, and undigested food particles then leak into the bloodstream and cause inflammation which can manifest differently for everybody. Dr. Axe states that “over 80% of people have some form of leaky gut.
If you are challenged and concerned with any of the following, it may be that the root problem is actually in your gut.
- Food sensitivities and allergies
- Gas, bloating, heartburn, acid reflux, chronic constipation, diarrhea, IBS
- Headaches and Migraines
- Joint Pain and Fibromyalgia
- Thyroid and Adrenal issues
- Skin Issues – rosacea, eczema, hives, acne
- Weight gain and hypertension
- Mood Issues – anxiety, depression, bipolar, ADHD, Autism
- Nutrient Malabsorption - especially iron, magnesium, zinc and Vitamin B12
- Autoimmune Disease - Crohn’s, Colitis, Celiac, Rheumatoid Arthritis, MS, etc.
The great news is there is so much we can do with the power of food, supplements and lifestyle that can make a tremendous difference in transforming your health.
So let’s get started. In your “Heal your Gut Consultation” this is what you can expect:
- A thorough intake to determine what your concerns are, evaluate your diet and lifestyle and put together the pieces the puzzle that are creating your current state of health
- An Advanced Nutri-Body Analysis to determine your gut health (digestive enzymes, probiotics, malabsorption, food sensitivities, candida, parasites, liver and gallbladder) and evaluate whether there is nutrient deficiencies, and weaknesses or imbalances in other areas of the body
- We will determine what your gut type is - Candida Gut, Toxic Gut, Immune Gut, Stressed Gut or Gastric Gut (this is cutting edge information by Dr. Axe that has me so excited!)
- We will create a roadmap for healing which will include: specific nutritional recommendations, a 2 week meal plan, recipes, a grocery list, a food summary sheet of all the foods you can have, a specific supplement protocol and lifestyle recommendations.
- We will do follow ups and track progress and adjust things as we need to and move you from a therapeutic protocol to maintenance protocol when your gut is ready.
