Gut Health - The underlying cause of many health issuesOct 20, 2023
- Hormone imbalances (including PMS and hot flashes)
- Inflammation (including pain and bloating)
- Immune health (including autoimmune disorders)
- Anxiety, Depression and Irritability
The GI Protocol is a four-phase program designed to support GI healing. GI health can be negatively impacted by several mechanisms such as stress, food sensitivities, microbiota imbalance and inflammation, leading to increased intestinal permeability.
The four steps outlined below are what we use to help minimize factors associated with inflammation and increased intestinal permeability while introducing foods and supplemental nutrients that support gut healing:
Phase 1 - Remove pathogens and inflammatory triggers that are associated with increased intestinal permeability.
Pathogenic microbes (e.g. overgrowth of yeast, bad bacteria, parasites, etc.) and food sensitivities like dairy (e.g. cow milk, cheese, cream, etc.)
Phase 2 - Improve Digestion digestive support for the stomach, pancreas and gall bladder to help reduce inflammation and optimize digestive health.
Digestive simulating herbs and spices (e.g. gentian, rosemary, artichoke, etc.) Apple cider vinegar, and Digestive enzymes
Phase 3 - Reinoculate the intestinal microbiota with beneficial bacteria to re-establish balance.
Pre and Probiotics Fermented foods such as: Fermented beverages (e.g. kombucha) and fermented soy products (e.g. miso, tempeh, natto) and fermented vegetables (e.g. sauerkraut, kimchi). High-fiber foods (e.g. vegetables, fruits, nuts).
Phase 4 - Repair the intestinal lining with specific nutrients and medicinal herbs known to decrease intestinal permeability and inflammation.
Dietary supplements such as: Aloe vera, Mastic gum, and L-glutamine.
The GI Protocol helps to optimize the whole digestive tract so your entire digestive system can function optimally. This in turn allows for greater improvements that last longer than just taking a probiotic to help with your digestive issues.
