8 Strategies I Used To Heal My Leaky Gut NaturallyApr 04, 2021
Why I know about Leaky Gut!
I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease back in 2000 and put on steroids for 18
years for a disease I didn't even have. Even though I was on medication, I continued
to be sick, exhausted, and in pain, all of the time and I was tired of being sick and I
While I was doing my own research over a period of 3-4 years trying to find an answer
to what was wrong with me, I stumbled upon information on Leaky Gut and quickly
realized I had pretty much all of the symptoms!
When I went to a few different doctors, they knew very little about it and didn’t
believe it was a “real” problem! But I knew it was for me! It was the only thing I came
across that actually made scientific sense!
Steps I took to heal Leaky Gut
There were some essential steps I took, that literally changed my life and I was able to
heal my gut naturally.
Numerous people have come to me for guidance and asked me over the years, “ How
did you do it?” and I’ve been able to guide them through the same steps that I used.
Here are the steps:
1 -- Educate yourself
So the first thing I did was learn more about what it was and what causes it so that I
could understand where I got it and how I could reverse the condition.
Leaky gut is a digestive condition where particles from your digestive system, toxins,
antigens and bacteria ARE leaking through the intestinal wall and into your
bloodstream, causing this leaky gut syndrome.
2 -- Find out the cause of your Leaky Gut
There are many things that can cause Leaky Gut and it can also be from a
combination of things.
Some triggers/causes are:
-a poor diet
-too much-refined sugar
-Too much-processed food
-Toxins, chemicals, or pesticides
-chlorinated tap water (affects gut flora)
-antibiotics/prescriptions, aspirin, or NSAIDs
-bacterial imbalances(dysbiosis) in your gut.
Your family doctor will not test you for Leaky Gut, there is no test for it specifically
through them! Only Practitioners or Doctors in the Natural Medicine fields are able
and trained to get specific tests done that you will need.
3 -- Get a Food Allergy Test!
Regular tests you get at the doctor will not show all of your immune reactions! They
generally only test you for IgG and that’s only 1 immune reaction. You need to be
tested for all 7 immune responses. Only Elisa testing will test all 7.
80% of my problem was food allergies!! I was diagnosed with Addison's Disease- an
autoimmune disease I didn't in fact have!! I was put on steroids for 18 yrs …
So if you have food allergies or allergies to something, find out what you're allergic to
and stay away from it, or if you have gluten issues -avoid it.
If you can't afford food allergy tests you can do an elimination diet but it's more
effective to get the testing done so you are not stuck guessing and continue eating
foods that are making you sick!
4 — LISTEN TO YOUR BODY
If it makes you feel sick or gives you any symptoms at all, write it down in a food
journal and stay away from it even if it's ”healthy”.
A lot of times we continue to eat foods because we think if it’s supposed to be good
for us, then it is healthy for us and we will continue to eat it even though it makes us
sick or gives us symptoms.
Even if it’s a banana or a blueberry- or ginger, or an avocado AVOID it and record it!
Your body will have trouble repairing itself if there are still toxins, Or underlying
issues that aren’t dealt with.
Make sure you do your research first so that you know how to detox safely, always
consult with your doctor to make sure it’s safe for your situation.
I have a video on the detox if you want to learn more about that.
6 -- Digestive Enzymes
You need to eat a good digestive enzyme before or with every meal. If you have a
Leaky Gut, you are most likely not going to be able to digest foods because you most
likely have vitamin deficiencies as well.
A digestive enzyme will help to break down your food so you will get more nutrients
out of your food.
7 -- Eat Healing Foods
You have to eat healing foods that are easy to digest and will nourish your body. You
want to get as many nutrients as you can to help the healing process.
This was the biggest thing for me that helped to repair my gut!
Foods that I ate most of :
-Bone broth and homemade healing soups (repairs intestinal lining and helps to
encourage good bacterial growth.)
-healthy smoothies packed with nutrients
Stay Away From
-stay away from fast food processed food, other people's food because you don’t
know what’s in it!
A few last tips
-Eat real food!!
- Avoid eating anything in a package.
-Always read ingredients so you know what’s in your food.
8 -- Probiotics
People with Leaky Gut have been shown to have an unbalanced microbiome.(Your
gut bacteria) will affect your digestion and absorption of nutrients.
Adding probiotics into your daily supplement routine will help to balance your gut
flora and improve your digestion.
Real Bone Broth made from real organic chicken, cooked for a minimum of 24 hrs.
has been shown to support and repair tissue and contribute to restoring balance in
Pure Ancient Nutrition Bone broth protein powder is what I used in all of my soups to
help heal my Leaky Gut!
All of these steps are what I did to heal my Leaky Gut naturally. It’s not easy when you
are trying to figure out what’s wrong with you alone.
Often this problem is not acknowledged as a real health problem, (at least it wasn’t
for me) but if you get to the root of the problem, recognizing and repairing a leaky gut
will change the quality of your life.
