An Unbiased Look at Leaky Gut Syndrome

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, February 2, 11:10 PM

Did you know that consuming certain inflammatory foods and some of your lifestyle habits are compromising your gut and contributing to what's known as ‘leaky gut’ also known as intestinal permeability?

 

Many health professionals and physicians support eliminating certain inflammatory foods, such as highly refined processed prepared packaged foods, sugars, and gluten as well as avoiding taking/using NSAIDS, protein pump inhibitors, prescription drugs, and antibiotics. 

 

David Perlmutter, MD, Neurologist said on a recent interview: “We need to understand that, the more antibiotics are being used, the more likely it is that the disease is not fully eradicated in the long run, because of increased gut permeability and inflammatory responses, ultimately translating to mitochondrial dysfunction”.

 

Inflammatory foods, chemical additives/emulsifiers, GMOs, and other meds decimate your gut.

 

Hippocrates, the Greek physician and father of modern medicine said “all disease begins in the gut.”  When you eat sugary processed junk food with no nutrients, unhealthy fat, and other inflammatory animal based foods your gut becomes dysfunctional, and your sick gut bacteria multiplies.

 

Health tips: Your body requires fiber, especially prebiotic fiber which is found in sea veggies, algae, greens, veggies, ripe fruit, nuts/seeds, legumes (beans, lentils, peas), and whole ancient grains (quinoa, amaranth, buckwheat, millet, teff). Eat organic as often as possible.

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, January 24, 12:12 AM

 

Did you know that starchy veggies are very important foods to consume? According to Dr John McDougal, there is worldwide data showing that people who ate starch based plant food didn’t have heart disease. They also weren’t obese, didn’t have diabetes type 2. 

 

In WW1 in Denmark animal based foods weren’t consumed and the data is very clear. These people eating plant based foods resembled many plant based real whole food consumers today. who are healthy, mostly trim, and fit.

 

Health Tips:  Consuming both non starch greens and veggies and starchy veggies as well as nuts/seeds, legumes (beans, peas, lentils), whole ancient grains, and some ripe fruit has been shown in numerous studies to be the healthiest regimen.

 

Still not sure. You can always go to www.nutritionfacts.org Dr Michael Greger’s non profit site to get all your questions answered.

How Eating the Rainbow Can Help Protect Against Cancer

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, February 20, 10:27 PM

 

Did you know that humans are the only species who eats another species? This fact is extremely telling. Regardless of whether animal based food comes from factory farms or from organic grass fed animals, consuming animal based food is not natural period.

 

Dairy and other animal based foods are pro-inflammatory. Plant based foods are anti-inflammatory and consuming organic plant based offers more suppression of cancer than eating conventional produce. 

 

According to Dr Michael Greger in his book, “How Not To Die” he states that conventional produce appears to have twice the levels of cadmium, a toxic heavy metal in the food supply along with mercury and lead. “The cadmium is thought to come from the phosphate fertilizers that are added to conventional crops”.

 

Most people though are concerned more with pesticide levels. Dr Greger recommends eating as much produce as possible, regardless of whether its organic or not.

 

Health Tips: Pile your plate high with sprouts, sea veggies, greens, land veggies, nuts/seeds. Consume ripe fruit and perhaps some organic whole ancient grains, if you experience no digestive issues.

 

Mushrooms as well as legumes make an excellent plant based source for your so called “meat” dish. Or if you just have to have animal based, make it your side dish instead of your main and eat it just a few times a week.

Did you know that B vitamins are water soluble vitamins that play key roles in cell metabolism? This article gives a good overview of most of the B vitamins.

 

Vitamin B9: Folate is essential for proper cognitive function. Folate is the whole food form which you can find in supplements as well as foods. Folic acid is the synthetic form found in many supplements. Choose folate.

 

Folate helps control homocysteine, a marker of inflammation and by itself a risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease. This B vitamin is linked to clear thinking.

 

Vitamin B12 is a group of cobalt containing vitamins called colbalamins. Methylcolbalamins is the coenzyme form of B12 that plays a role in human metabolism. B12 plays a role in DNA synthesis, red blood cell formation, and is involved in the functioning of both the nervous and immune system. This information comes from www.hippocrateshealthinst.org 

 

Health tips:  Folate is found in leafy green veggies, such as spinach, turnip greens, and Romaine lettuce, and asparagus.. It also occurs naturally in chickpeas (garbanzo beans), kidney beans, lima beans, pinto beans, and lentils.

 

Vitamin B12 is best taken in supplement form. There’s two bacterial forms, Ocean Energy and B12 Forte from Hippocrates and a whole food nutritional supplement from Garden of Life called Vitamin Code.
