Leaky Gut Syndrome: Causes, Symptoms, Risk Factors & How To Reverse Leaky Gut

Thanks for checking out this comprehensive
video today. In this video, I’m going to talk about leaky gut syndrome. It’s a functional
complaint that’s often been maligned by medical practitioners. Before I delve into it, I just
want to read out an email I got from a first-year medical student from America regarding leaky
gut. I wrote an article on EricBakker.com regarding
leaky gut, and this is what this particular student wrote. She says, “Mr. Bakker, leaky
gut syndrome is pure naturopathic nonsense. It’s just like adrenal fatigue, just another
fictitious man-made disease. Many people confuse adrenal fatigue with Addison’s disease, which
is an actual, real and diagnosable medical condition when you don’t make enough cortisol
in your glands. This can only be diagnosed by your real doctor, and various tests are
needed to diagnose this disease. Candida is bullshit, too. It is possible to have a full
body fungal infection, but you’d be in the intensive care unit nearly dead.’ Signed,
Miss so and so. This is a very interesting email from a person,
obviously a first-year medical student, so I’ll forgive her for her ignorance. When I
was a medical student, I was quite ignorant, too, and had a lot of strong opinions about
things which I know now 27 years later I’ve got completely different ideas about. It’s
interesting and I think back at my dad who was a very pragmatic man, and Dad said that
opinions are like bowel motions. We all have them from time to time. Sometimes some people
have more or less. Sometimes people are full of these things and just pass out bowel motions
all the time. Almost like verbal diarrhea. And that’s what we’ve got in this case. A
person with verbal diarrhea. So I’ll forgive this person, of course, because she’s a medical
student. And if she happens to see this YouTube clip, I welcome her to contact me when she’s
qualified and maybe 10 years down the track when she’s settled into a practice a bit more
and overcome a little bit of that verbal diarrhea. Let’s now have a look at leaky gut syndrome,
what the condition really entails. Leaky gut syndrome is not a fictitious disease. In fact,
there are many different research papers in mainstream medical journals that have been
written about intestinal permeability. It’s certainly not fictitious by any means. When
we examine the small intestine, there are three sections to the small intestine. The
first part, which connects up to the stomach, is called the duodenum. And in America, I
believe they call it the duodenum. The duodenum contains quite a lot of intense solar activity
there in terms of digestion. In fact, there’s a very small section at the beginning of the
duodenum which is about 75 to 90 mils that contains most of the person’s immune function
activity of the whole digestive system. We’re talking about probably three or four inches
of bowel, which is impacted with an incredible amount of immune cells.
It’s estimated that about 60 percent of a person’s immune activity is located in the
small intestine, and probably three quarters of that is in the first three to four inches
of that section of small intestine. If we examine the small intestine and open it up,
it has a surface area of about a tennis court. It’s remarkable. You may see some pictures
on the internet of what we call villi and microvilli. Villi are basically, I’ll draw
a picture for you. They’re small, funny shaped objects like this. That’s a villi and a villi
looks a little bit like that. Microvilli are basically the little projections that run
off the villi. You can see those. If you have a look closer, we’ve actually got even smaller
villi that run off those. The point I’m making here is the surface area is dramatically increased
because we’ve got a huge amount of digestive area that we’re looking at.
If you look at the microvilli, little finger-like projections, there’s basically one cell layer
that goes around the microvilli. These cellular junctions in a healthy person are very tight
and well-controlled spaces. And the body does this to allow very well digested particles
of proteins, carbohydrates and fats to get through to the circulatory system. These food
components have to be broken down to the tiniest unit before they’re allowed to get into the
body. Sometimes, however, with people these cellular junctions aren’t as tight as they
should be, so they’ll be a slight gap in the cellular junction. And this will allow partially
digested food particles to get through those cellular junctions into the bloodstream and
affect the immune response on the other side. This is what we know as “leaky gut syndrome.”
Leaky gut is actually very common. And, in fact, I would say easily three quarters of
my patients have some variant of leaky gut, and it’s not hard to see why. There are many
causes of leaky gut, but the common cause, I again, would anticipate to be stress, pharmaceutical
medications, diet, alcohol, various toxins and various other causes, but those are the
common ones. Alcohol is a very common cause of leaky gut syndrome because just about everybody
drinks booze. Lots of people take paracetamol or Tylenol, ibuprofen. Antibiotics are one
of the biggest causes of leaky gut syndrome. You’d be surprised how many millions of tons
of antibiotics are used in the food chain every year in America and in Europe and in
many other countries. These are the silent causes of leaky gut syndrome. Leaky gut syndrome
is also implicated very much with irritable bowel syndrome, which I’ve done another video
on, and also inflammatory bowel syndrome. If you’ve got leaky gut, what are some of
the primary causes and what are some of the effects of leaky gut on our body? How would
it affect our health? Some of the symptoms that you’ll experience with leaky gut are
typically bloating, burping, gas, altered bowel motions. A little bit like what you
would expect with irritable bowel. You would also find, though, that many people with leaky
gut have got some type of a food allergy. Something I very commonly see.
Before you go running off taking all gluten out of your diet, why don’t you do a test
called an Intestinal Permeability Test? Which is a lactulose mannitol test. So you basically
swallow these two types of sugars and you see by what comes out of you which sugar is
held back and which one is passed out if you’ve got leaky gut or not. That’s certainly a viable
test to do. Before you start taking all gluten out of your diet, maybe you should start taking
alcohol out of your diet. Maybe you should have a look at the stress levels that you’ve
got. Whether you like your work or your partner. If you have issues with people close to you.
If you’re sleeping properly. If you’re relaxing properly. If you’re doing too much. These
are all common things you need to really analyze before you start making major dietary changes.
I’m not a huge fan of everyone going off gluten. I mentioned this before in many videos and
I think it’s a bit of a cop out that everyone’s going on a Paleo diet or a modified carbohydrate
diet. People need to go on a modified stress lifestyle before they go on these modified
carbohydrate diets. Stress is never looked at with people. It’s silent. It’s in the background.
It’s just never really attended to. It’s one of the key causes of most people’s gut dysfunctions,
is stress. We’re living increasingly stressful lives.
Leaky gut syndrome. You can also experience sensations in the digestion system. You can
experience sensations anywhere around here. Off on the sides here. Centrally probably
more because of the small intestine. Irritable bowel you’re going to probably experience
sensations more along the top or in the colon. But the small intestine, you’ll sort of feel
it there really in the middle of the gut. If we’ve got this condition, what the heck
can we do to get on top of it? How can we fix it up? As I said in my irritable bowel
syndrome video, you need to address the causes. You need to look at the primary cause, the
exciting thing, the thing that got it started and you need to look at the maintaining causes.
Have you taken antibiotics in the past? Are you on the Pill? Are you taking medications?
These things need to be changed. If you’re currently taking pharmaceuticals and particularly
if they’re non-essentials or you don’t really need them, I would recommend you stop taking
them. If you’re taking a drug and you think it’s affecting you, go and see your doctor,
your naturopathic doctor or medical doctor, and have a talk with him or her about this
and ask if there are any alternatives. There might be a natural analog or a natural product
you can take. Analyze your lifestyle. As I mentioned before,
look at the kind of stresses that you’re living under. Are you happy with the person you’re
living with? Have you got a mortgage over 200K that you can’t service? Is there some
kind of stress that you’re going to bed with every night? Is your mind taking over and
you can’t switch off? Maybe you’re one of these type A people that I see, one of these
human dynamos that has to do everything perfectly. Everything has to be cleaned and wiped down
and tidy. You’ve got millions of lists of things to do. Maybe your thyroid or adrenals
are being overactive. That can certainly cause a lot of hormonal disturbances leading toward
leaky gut syndrome. As you can see, there’s a lot for you to think about.
If you don’t attend to leaky gut over time, what you’re going to find will happen is you
could get increasing cognitive dysfunction. So the mind could become affected. Brain fog
is quite real. You could start losing train of thought a bit, memory loss. You’re losing
that sharp edge that you used to have when you were in your 20s and 30s. You could be
noticing some pains around the joints, finger joints or wrists or shoulders or elbows. These
things can happen. As these partially digested food particles
get into the bloodstream, they upregulate the immune response. White blood cells start
recognizing these things as foreign invaders and secrete chemicals, which can attack them
and form what we call “circulating immune complexes.” These CICs then can travel through
the bloodstream and lodge in different parts of the body where they attract more attention
and inflammation can increase. There’s potential there for quite a lot of serious problems
down the track. Many people, I believe, develop leaky gut syndrome in their 20s, 30s, and
40s, and tend to keep this condition for 30, 40 years until they end up with all sorts
of autoimmune responses and even cancers. The problem with medicine is there’s never
any attention paid to cause and effect. So a person develops a functional complaint 20
or 30 years prior to a major diagnosis, it’s never taken seriously. Like anything in life.
If you’ve got a small problem, fix it now before it becomes a serious problem. If you
found rust on your car, would you ignore it? Probably not. You’d probably get it cut out
and fixed. Because if you left that rust for 20 or 30 years, your car’s a write off. If
you live in Australia where I used to live and you’ve got termites that are boring into
the walls of your house, you better get the pest control guy out and get that attended
to. Because if you turn a blind eye to it, that whole house is gone. Small problems fixed
up don’t become major problems where your life is in jeopardy.
Many different issues there with leaky gut syndrome. How do we remedy it? As I mentioned,
stress, attention to diet, maybe some dietary supplements, and an antifungal/antibacterial
product is worth taking. I developed a product called Canxida, which you can get from Canxida.com.
That’s going to help clear any potential pathogens like small intestinal bowel overgrowth or
what we call SIBO or Candida or parasites. It’s going to help clear that from that bowel.
In my opinion, it works as effective if not better, than most of the prescribed antifungals/antibacterial
products, antibiotics you get on the market without having the side effects. That product
is going to work quite well if you use it in conjunction with a carefully controlled
diet and you cut booze out of your lifestyle for a while.
And, of course, you need to include fermented and cultured foods into your diet like some
kimchee, some yogurt, and some sauerkraut. There are different foods that you can include
in your diet which are high in lactic acid, which build up the beneficial bacteria. That’s
a very smart move to do, particularly if you’re going to pull alcohol and these sugary foods
out of your diet. So take these things out of your diet. Include these cultured foods,
and I think you’ll find that a lot of your functional digestive symptoms will disappear.
You’ve got to try to understand that your digestive system is like a garden. You’ve
got to weed it from time to time. You’ve got to culture it. You’ve got to nurture it. You’ve
got to tend to it. You can’t have a beautiful garden per chance. It needs attention and
regular maintenance. And the digestive system is no different. And some people’s lawns and
gardens look absolutely beautiful. They’re a joy to behold. Other people’s gardens like
my neighbor I used to live next door to will have a car body in the yard and beer bottles
piled up in the corner and no doubt there’ll be a few rats and mice running around, which
really are the parasites, aren’t they? How do you treat your lawn? As a dumping ground?
Or is it a place where you like people to come and really enjoy it because it’s such
a beautiful thing? I think you get my point by now. It’s really up to you how you develop
and culture your internal garden. You don’t need to develop a botanical garden, but surely
you can weed and mow quite regularly. The product Canxida will do that. It will tidy
up that interior. The fertilizing is really the fermented and cultured foods. Eating foods
rich in lactic acid are going to help to provide compost and fertilizer and really help to
build a beautiful garden. Both of those things are worth thinking about.
I hope that’s given you some good information on leaky gut syndrome. You can fix this condition
up within a week by making some serious changes to your lifestyle and diet. But in all honesty,
it’s going to take probably three months and even six to twelve months before it’s 100
percent again. The garden is not dissimilar. When you start with bad dirt, you can’t have
a beautiful lawn in a week. But you can certainly get rid of the symptoms in a few days with
leaky gut syndrome by making the significant changes I’d like you to make, particularly
to your diet up front. And when you do it and the symptoms improve, that will give you
more confidence to go further and start tackling the bigger projects like the stress, maybe
that job you don’t like, or you need a relationship change or you need to scale down your house
or things like that. Remember, and never underestimate stress.
To me, it’s one of the biggest causes of irritable bowel and leaky gut. If you can get that nailed
and your diet sorted, you’re going to be well on the road to having a very good functioning
digestive system and no doubt perfect health in time.
Thanks for tuning into this video today.

  1. Hi Dr. Bakker… I've heard you can't address candida until you address your leaky gut first.  If this is true, then when do you know when your leaky gut has healed?  Thank you.

  2. I have gluten sensitivity and I can tell you its not stress that causes leaky gut. If it did then I would have had it decades ago. I've seen many people offering advice on Leaky gut but actually not telling you how to fix it. Diet didn't fix it either but stopped the symptoms of gluten sensitivity like running to the toilet 10 times a day. But I have severe weight loss and nobody seems to have the answer to this.

  3. Hi again..you talked about high lactic acid in your diet to help check candida..is this the same lactic acid your body produces when you strength train or some other vigorous exercise? Does it have the same benefits as ingesting lactic acid?

  4. Also..adaptogens and stress..macca, rhodiola, medicinal mushrooms etc..do you find that they benefit high stress levels?

  5. Thank so much for this information, some of the things you talk about, like eating the right foods, and so on I did when I was young ate the right food. Now I'm in my 60's soon to be 62 and I'm deal with some of these issue.I have been checking out some of these channel that deal with candid, yours is about the best one that I like; you get right to the point as to why things things go wrong when we are dealing with our health.

  6. hi,I have a bad case of Fungal Sinusitis which is causing mucous in my throat that is from the cystic that I have in  my sinus. I have been to two doctor, Doctor number 2 had me to do lots of testes and told me that I had cystic and they had to be remove in order for my sinus to get better. Well I did not go back  to him. I know about your book and I will be getting it when I can. can you do something on Fungal Sinusitis/ mucous in the throat. Can I get your book at Amazon? 

  7. I forgot to tell to you with all of these doctors that I have been going with there  meds that I have been on for years; I now have a small case of leaky gut, stress is a big part and that sleeping is not helping. I am deal with this the best way I can by reading and doing research and learning about good health that works for me.

  8. Hi Eric, I have watched a few of your videos and really value your advice and knowledge on combating intestinal/systemic candida….I think I have a leaky gut due to SIBO and intestinal candida….is there any way I could send you a private email with my symptoms and what im doing? im just so fed up as have had this for 7 years now and my condition is definitely chronic. I do follow paeleo and drink lots of mineral water, take all the herbs and supplements and rotate them to keep it all new for the lil beastys…..I would like to know there is light at the end of the tunnel……

  9. Can leaky gut lead to vision disturbances? Over the past 2 years Ive had brain fog, memory loss, visual haze, confusion, dizziness, spacey. My vision is 20/20 however it's seems hazy, cloudy, blurred, light sensitivity and streaks or trails. Somedays better than others. After spending thousands of dollars for a diagnosis of anxiety/depression and given Zoloft, (which I will not take) I am back to healing on my own. Should I start with my gut?

  10. Hey, thanks for your videos!
    Im 23 and sick since im 20.
    A duodenal ulcer cracked and since them i got huge healthy problems.
    My Immune System is working poorly and my holy body is shutting down from time to time.
    Right now im not even able to walk upstairs to my room..
    Cant eat, not hungry and no apetitt…
    Do you got any suggestions ?

    Thanks from Germany!

  11. At least a serious someone to tell the real truth of leaky gut! The vast majority of people having leaky gut is because they have meals when under stress!!!!!!! That is one of the major reasons that food particles cannot be digested in the first place!!!!!! It is common one to have a massive breakfast or lunch and then go to work in a stressful environment. It is impossible for the body to digest the food properly because It prioritizes dealing with the ongoing "fight or flight" response. 
     Then you can start thinking which allergenic foods to eliminate like gluten, dairy, high animal protein…., nuts, seeds….

  12. It is so incredibly terrifying that this med student is so misinformed.  That is why so many people are seeking out naturalpath doctors that understand this syndrome.  It is real, it is life changing and the MD's better get on board. I having lived it, am not so willing to forgive the med student BTW.

  13. i really wanted to  listen to your video but as a foreigner i cant. audio is too low, and your speech is not very clear/understandable…

  14. Hi Eric, Thanks for all your great videos. I have read a a lot about leaky gut and I find this video much more precise and helpful. I have been having digestive problems for over 4 years now and I was wondering if you have seen anyone with leaky gut who has problems with onion, garlic, pepper, spices some leafy greens etc. ? 2 years ago I was in such a bad state and as I had tried going to many different doctors and no one could help me I started doing my own research and of course I started by removing gluten from my diet. No lies I was feeling great for 2 months but after that it all came back to me, this time I eliminated dairy! again for a month I was doing good but again it came back. For the past year I have changed my diet to have as much organic food as I can afford and I have added everyday exercise to my daily life. I am doing much much better I am eating gluten but not too much, maybe 1 or 2 french toast a week, for dairy I have added greek yogurt. But I still can't eat food that contains garlic or onion or some leafy greens or peppers or strong spices. After consuming any food that contains any of these I will feel sick for the whole day and sometimes even throw up 5 or 6 hours later. My brain fog and memory loss is getting better too but I am still concerned.

  15. Thank you so much for this video!  I was recently diagnosed with leaky gut and have been on a paleo diet for 3 weeks.  I know I need to get tested for food allergies and h pylori and get some more supplements, but with just the diet, is it normal to feel worse instead of better?  I have been getting kidney pain and worse bloating, not to mention alternating diarrhea and constipation.  And also its hard to know whether I just have leaky gut or IBS, or candida or h pylori when the symptoms are all the same but the diets for each are different.

  16. What that student said, it's just the same as what the NHS website (British) says.  The medical world always debunk Candida

  17. Where can i get that anti fungal product. I think i have SIBO. I can't eat fermented foods because i have histamine intolerance. I also have fructose malabsorption

  18. Can you do a video on peristalsis?  Do you think it's related to candida, or maybe the liver/gallbladder?  I've not gotten a clear answer as to why I can't have totally regular elimination.  My diet is excellent with tons of vegies/fruits etc.  I avoid almost all sugar.  Thanks!

  19. Thanks for these videos. I struggle with brain fog and it's greatly impacting my quality of life and taking away my enjoyment from life. I'm trying to find the cause and all the research is exhausting. I sleep plenty, I eat well, I'm beginning to jog every day: I'm also stress free, the only stress I have is trying to cure the brain fog. I don't understand what the issue is. My memory is so horrible due to the brain fog and it just feels really hazy and strange.

  20. My 4 months of CFS/CFIDS was causing candida overgrowth. Antifungal fixed it, but never felt that it's as flat as before even after 3 months. I took 100mg L-Glutamine and 300mg L-Carnitine and got diarrhea the first day. Now on 4th day and it was massive improvements both on my gut and brain. Seems that my digestion was inflamed all the time post the candida infection.

    Is there anything should I try or was those 2 enough and to just wait it out?

  21. Can't stress how stress (haha) management is the leading cause for all diegestive problems which eventually leads to almost all other health problems.. I'm not sure about the gluten part. i know for a FACT that since i began suffering from chronic anxiety i cannot touch gluten. but i dont recall having problems with it prior to that. so i agree with him there that you should balance your mental-emotional state first before approaching your diet. Dont hold thous emotions in … ;/

  22. I had a duadual ulcer that ruptured and the doctors were able to save me after a great battle, no one had ever explained like you have.  They also said it was caused by stress…….!  GO DOC!  Wish more MD's were like you.

  23. Whenever I take anything to help deal with candida, it gives me migraine, plus I get a lot of headaches as an intolerance response to many kinds of food. It makes me feel rather hemmed in because I don't know what I could take that would be reasonably well tolerated.

  24. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU ! This is seriously the best thing I have seen about leaky gut and candida. I have both of these problems and you are the first person to comment on how stress could be making it worse. I have done plenty of research online and gone to see my doctor (who told me I was fine and gave me antibiotics) and nobody mentions stress or alcohol. They all talk about having a good diet but I already eat so healthily that I couldn't understand why I was feeling better. You have explained everything so well and you look at the whole person – not just the symptoms. Thank you. Have subscribed and will be watching you videos. wish you were my doctor ! 🙂

  25. Thank you! That was extremely helpful. I don't drink any alcohol but I'm very addicted to soda/pop. Time to get serious about this!

  26. Leaky gut and adrenal fatigue are real. I am surprised at this first year medical student's response as well.

  27. completely new to the topic, so i'm wondering… i'm having a histamine, fruit sugar and sorbitol intolerance plus symptoms of the leaky gut. also it just turned out i might have a gluten sensitivity since i found out it causes me acne, a swollen face and stomach rumble (no refined sugars, no alcohol). i could cry at this point already.
    but my question is: i'm still fine with dairy, eggs and some foods that actually contain or liberate histamine. in order to change my diet so i can hope to heal my gut in the long term -am i still allowed to eat those foods? (even if eg. dairy consumption isn't reommended for a leaky gut? i'm speaking of yoghurt. milk and cheese moderately)
    otherwise i'm really confused what i should eat anymore at all…

  28. I have tried to purchase your book Candida Crusher, and though my payment info was accepted, the download did not complete.

  29. cure for leaky gut is very serious. if you have digestive problem you will get it after lunch diner and breakfast.

  30. Experience talking! Leaky gut is caused by gluten. Stop eating wheat and other sources of gluten, plus drinking coffee and your life will change forever.

  31. What do we do then when we have an infection and get prescribed Anti Biotics?? Or in terrible pain and NEED to take pain killers?? Major problem. I had a tooth absess and got anti biotics from dentist..got VERY depressed and have NOT been well since!

  32. I have been listening to Dr Robert Morse and have been doing green smoothies and fruits etc, fasting. No sugar, wheat, dairy etc.. But it is AWFUL realy. I cannot seem to eat anything. Acid reflux every time I eat dairy or wheat. I am in NO Man's Land! And VERY depressed!

  33. Learn the leading causes of leaky gut, and the best leaky gut treatment plan. A step by step approach to reverse leaky gut once and for all. This video is for those suffering with leaky gut. CanXida Restore is one of the best probiotics for leaky gut syndrome. Visit Canxida.com to order canxida restore today.

  34. Can you do a video on foods to eat on leaky gut diet and foods to avoid on leaky gut diet? There are a lot of videos on youtube related to leaky gut causes, leaky gut symptoms but I have not seen any video by any leaky gut expert on leaky gut foods to eat and foods to avoid. You will be the first one to do such a video. It will help everyone on youtube looking for leaky gut resources.

  35. This was a very informative video. I was in AP Biology last year and learned a little about this specific topic. After listening to this video, I hope the medical student who wrote to you, quickly changed their opinion about leaky gut syndrome, because it really is no joke. I'll keep the symptoms you stated in mind for future references, in case I experience that in the future.

  36. I live in USA and I suffer from mild Sjogren's Syndrome. Modern medicine only suppresses the symptoms. Is there any alternative cure/treat for this illness?Thanks, Mario.

  37. Dr. Bakker, what are some good supplements to take for leaky gut? Treating leaky gut is always a challenge when it comes to supplements if you could share a video to talk about best supplements and herbs that one can use for leaky gut treatment that would be great.

  38. I've looked on your website and also on amazon.com. both sites say that the product is not available. would you happen to know when it will be in stock again? My partner and I have been on the candida diet for almost 2 months now. we've been very good with it. we are taking liver cod oil, taurine, lecithin, plant sterols, Grapefruit seed extract along with other antifungals, and a liver optimizer pill. we also do lemon water w cayenne pepper, diatomaceous earth and bentonite clay, apple cider vinegar and coconut oil. is there anything advice you can give me on our supplements? if we are doing the right thing? I still get bloated, and smelly farts and poo, especially when I'm backed up. please help. :) thank you. I love your videos.

  39. What's your stance on Endo toxins?Dr. Gregor from nutritionfacts.org says that ALL meat and fish have endo toxins, even organic local farmers market grass fed meat. These endo toxins are inside the bacteria on the meat, and once they break apart and are ingested they cause systemic inflammation all over the body and harden/inflame the arteries….These endo toxins cannot be neutralized either, no matter what. Says that people should avoid meat and fish all together and adopt an organic plant based diet. 😛 This has officially scared me off of meat….I hope Dr. Gregor is wrong and this is instead some sort of vegan propaganda.

  40. How could someone think the gut isn't permeable when that's exactly how alcohol gets in your bloodstream?? lol
    This is video is super informative and I'm grateful for that as I have severe rosacea and fear this is probably the cause.

  41. Hi, Can a 3 year old have leaky gut? No antibiotics used (ever)…main problem right now is eczema (in the face). Thank you for your advice.

  42. Hi Dr. Bakker, can leaky gut and Sibo cause neurological symptoms like tremors and unsteady gait? I've been off gluten for a couple weeks but still feel crappy. I also have bad brain fog. I ordered your canxida restore and rebuild again because I didn't take the first batch consistently.

  43. Thank you for responding you are so Awesome!!! I'm definitely going on Canxida.com. You are Great!!! thank u for caring so much about the world!!!

  44. Great Video, Thanks, an eye opener, something we have in the back of our mines and need to brink forwards to consciously deal with it ., stress and diet a vicious circle that need to be broken .

  45. Yes, that medical student needs to be is a patient of a medical doctor w/ her views, that gets ZERO help for various conditions, and out of desperation, turns to a Naturopath and FINALLY sees MEASURABLE RESULTS! Even better, when that person actually experiences HEALING and can live a healthier life with that new found knowledge! Thank U!

  46. i need help here ! i was given and just finished a course of antibiotics by my dr to erradicate Hpylori but now given NEXIUM 20mg esomeprazole for a month to neutralize my stomach acid I was told. yet my Naturopath has given me HYDROCHLORIC ACID beatin and i am totally confused to as what to take or to take them both ? are they talking about different acids ? like lemon juice ?
    please explain

  47. Hi I get a stabbing pain about once a year it starts. it's around my bowl and the Dr just said it's IBS and it happens after I had a cold and I took antibiotics. I also feel real anxious and short of breath when this happens. They have done colonoskipy etc and found nothing. Is it IBS? They say it's stress but why only once a year?

  48. Hi Eric – What would a pain/dull ache in the area about 2 inches below the belly button be? Is that the large intestines?

    If I ever get stomach ache it is almost exclusively in that area. IBS maybe? Sometimes get in the morning whilst waking.

  49. Ive run into a lot of problems lately. Went from extremely healthy to tons of problems in a cpl months. I've tested for everything and everything but celiac came back fine. Funny thing is i dont feel i have reactions at all when i eat wheat. No diarrhea or constipation, no symptoms at all that I notice after I eat it. CTs, ultrasounds, blood all came back negative. Colonoscopy too. Now im "crazy" to my drs. They say ive developed a somatic disorder, but ive had a pain on the right side of my lower stomach(8 inches) from my belly button, joint pain, trigger points, memory problems, lymph node swelling, tinnitus, floaters in my eyes, rashes in my armpits etc. and more. it all came out of nowhere within 2-3 months. Tested for lyme and it came up borderline. I dont eat wheat, dairy, sugar, grains and most starchy veg. Fruit is strawberries, apples, pineapple, figs. I am super stressed and this all happened right after a bad breakup. It felt like something in me broke. I eat all organic and antibiotic-free hormone-free as well. I am completely lost…..

  51. Ill put this out there, might help someone, might not, but you may get my logic here. I had ibs for around 10 or so years now, which means the craps several times a day for almost every day even, and of course if you have had ibs you know the horror stories that go along with it, need I mention fire in the hole. Anyway tried most everything under the sun to help, some things helped a little, most seemed to have no effect at all, probiotics did help a little for short times. But it always came back with no reason or ryme why. I even started getting hernias and Ill fill you in on a possible reason why later. Anyway to make a long story short as this is getting long, well Ill try to make it shorter. Found out it was the goody powders I had been taking. And you can call all this coincidence but the logic is there it just took me forever to figure it out. I had been taking goody powders almost daily at the longest weekly a box was bought. Yes Im an older person and aches and pains are nothing to laugh at as most everyone will get them around middle age. But the problem I found out to this is that. Nsaids which are all pain medicines and usually work well, another reason for their addiction, as they stop pain, swelling and inflammation which seems great, has a down side, the body uses pain, swelling and inflammation as a signal to cause healing. And its well known also Nsaids slow down the healing process which leads to more pain and then of course more pain medicine use, a circle is it not. Well Nsaids cause intestinal bleeding which would stagnate, and the body would see that as infection, and given its in the intestines the body would think flush out the infection, and thus the craps come. Should I mention Nsaids also kill gut flora, you should know the benefits of gut flora I assume. Now as to the hernias, well whats the closest thing to the intestines, the stomach muscles and the Nsaids would leak outward to that, and since Nsaids slow healing, the stomach muscles would slow in healing, causing a weakness there, see the logic here, but call that just an opinion. After stopping all Nsaids the diarrhea every day for almost all day long has stopped, and my bowels seem to be normal for the most part again. This took only several weeks of no Nsaids to notice this. I cant say the same result will happen for you as Im no doctor and cant offer medical advice, But I can tell my story. Such could help you as it did me, and at the least no Nsaids will most likely stop internal bleeding and ulcers, assuming you can bare some minor pain that aging brings. If you cant,,then do what you must, no one can tell you otherwise. In truth Nsaids should not be used for daily aches and pains, but only for severe absolute unbearable pain, but so many of us have felt we needed them for daily or weekly aches and pains, and for many of us that lead to our own misery. Best of luck

  52. here's several ideas for relieving leaky gut quickly
    Have a whole food, nutrient-rich diet that avoids foods which irritate your gut
    Make sure your digestion is working: You can eat a perfect diet, but if you aren’t digesting food appropriately, it is not going to help.
    Discover and remove underlying food sensitivities – eliminate a suspected food for a period of time
    Discover ways to reduce and eliminate stress:eg Prayer, meditation, yoga, adequate sleep, and acupuncture
    Eat gut healing foods and nutrients
    Balance the gut flora using appropriate amounts of fermented foods in your diet each day.
    Find and remove gastrointestinal infections
    Try the use of gut-irritating medications:
    Lessen exposure to environmental toxins
    Get plenty sleep and avoid overtraining which are a form of stress to the body.

  53. 😂 Quite ignorant of this med student. Anyway, I appreciate all your information, I have been listening regularly and I have been helped greatly.

  54. I consider myself as a health conscious person. However I once had a bad breakup that gave me traumatic fight or flight stress, I got alopecia (autoimmune). Just recently I suffered the same experience after a long relationship, this time eczema. Next time I encounter this type of traumatic experience, I'm supplementing with high doses of L Glutamine and probiotics before it breaks me down again.

  55. Your videos are great resources. I know everyone is different but how long does leaky gut take to heal. I've been following the diet for 2 1/2 months.
