Heal Your Body With a Healthy Diet

Breaking The Vicious Cycle

What If I told You There Was A Diet That Could Help Chronic Digestive Symptoms, Reduce Inflammation and Heal Your Gut?

Breaking the Vicious Cycle was written by Elaine Gottschall, biochemist and cell biologist to provide an alternative way to treat digestive disorders using dietary changes.

What’s the SCD Diet?

Elaine Gottschall’s Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) is based on the principle that specifically selected carbohydrates need minimal digestive processing. These select carbs are well absorbed and do not encourage microbial overgrowth in the GI tract.

Elaine’s book talks about using the Specific Carbohydrate Diet to help reduce inflammation and heal the gut.

What Are the Digestive Conditions Healed by the Right Diet?

Elaine Gottschall -Specific Carbohydrate Diet SCD

Elaine Gottschall -Specific Carbohydrate Diet SCD

This book gives  practical recipes that address the problems of intestinal conditions such as:

Celiac Disease
Crohn’s Disease
Diverticulitis
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Chronic Diarrhea
Indigestion

How Does The Specific Carbohydrate Diet Work to Heal?

The Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), is outlined in her book with easy to follow recipes. It’s a strict grain-free, lactose-free, and sucrose-free meal plan.

The SCD works by severely limiting the availability of carbohydrates to intestinal microbes. This is important because of all dietary components, carbohydrates have the greatest influence on intestinal microbes (yeast and bacteria), which are believed to be involved in intestinal disorders. Most intestinal microbes require carbohydrates for energy.

Decrease Chronic Inflammation Now

Decrease Chronic Inflammation Nowinflammation is the root cause of disease

Chronic inflammation is your body’s  immune response to a barrage of environmental, physical and mental invaders. These stressors could be from things like poor diet, toxic chemicals and stress. Research has shown that inflammation in your gut can be the cause of inflammation in your joints and your brain.

What are Some Causes of inflammation?

Poor dietary choices such as processed foods, factory farmed proteins, sugary drinks, trans fats and certain unhealthy saturated fats

  • Gut health issues
  • Food sensitivities
  • Excess alcohol
  • Chronic infections (bacteria, viruses, yeast, parasites)
  • Stress and exhaustion
  • Sedentary lifestyle

What are the Results of Chronic Inflammation?

Over time, chronic inflammation wears out your immune system, leading to chronic diseases and other health issues, including cancer, asthma, autoimmune diseases, allergies, irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis, osteoporosis and premature aging.

Unfortunately, these challenges are often treated with drugs, which may provide temporary relief from the symptoms, but do not treat the root of the problem. In addition, these drugs (and their side effects) sometimes only add to your health problems.

How Can You Reduce Chronic Inflammation?

  • Focus on gut health
  • Eat a plant based diet or as close to as possible
  • Identify and address food sensitivities
  • Identify any chronic gut issues such as bad bacteria, viruses, yeast or parasites
  • Destress, relax and rest more
  • Reduce toxins in your food, home and personal care products

How Can You Find Out the Root Cause of Your Inflammation?

With the help of Genova Diagnostics you can figure out where inflammation in your gut may be coming from. They offer easy to use at home gut tests such as the Genova Lab Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis and Parasitology,  which will identify parasites, abnormal bacteria, yeasts and other gastrointestinal issues. The Intestinal Permeability Test will help you determine if you have Leaky Gut.

Testing gives you invaluable information to help you create a game plan that targets the root of inflammation.

Some supplements that help with inflammation are; Probiotics, Co-enzyme Q10, carotenoids, fish oil, selenium, vitamins C, D and E.

What’s Crohn’s Disease?

Genova 2.0

What is Crohn’s Disease?

Crohn’s is part of a group of conditions known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease, shortened by using the initials IBD. The part of the body affected is the digestive tract,  where we digest our food.

Crohn’s most commonly affects the end of the small bowel (the ileum) and the beginning of the colon, but it may affect any part of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, anywhere from the mouth to the anus.

This GI inflammation causes parts of the intestines to become red and swollen. The inflammation typically extends into the lining of the affected organs. Sometimes sores and even ulcers occur in the walls of the intestine.

Over time the chronic inflammation will result in digestive symptoms.

What are the  symptoms of Crohn’s?

  • cramping
  • abdominal pain
  • rectal bleeding
  • fatigue
  • persistent diarrhea (loose, watery, or frequent bowel movements)
  • weight Loss

How can you find out if you have Crohn’s?

Because Crohn’s disease is marked by an abnormal response in the body’s immune system it can be detected with an at home stool test. We advise clients to use Genova Labs 2.0.

Genova’s easy to use, at home stool test employs markers that tell the difference between IBD (Crohns and Ulcerative Colitis) and IBS (irritable Bowel Disease). If the test shows positive for IBD, further evaluation with a physician is appropriate.

What is the treatment for Crohn’s?

Start today with effective, natural supplements and a change of diet. Many people have been able to control their symptoms and encourage remission with a drugless approach.

For symptom relief here are natural, safe anti-inflammatories that can help reduce inflammation. Our clients do well with Serrapeptase, FYI and Aloe Concentrate. The products are safe to use and don’t have harmful side effects.

Crohn’s Disability Benefits Guide

Disability Compensation Guide

Did you know that you could get disability compensation for Crohn’s Disease?

  • The inflammation and tissue damage associated with Crohn’s disease requires long-term management
  • This condition is considered chronic
  • This condition can be life long

Crohn’s is an inflammatory bowel disease which has a wide range of symptoms that vary in severity.

While some people may show only mild or occasional symptoms, others experience debilitating and frequent symptoms such as:

  • abdominal pain
  • diarrhea
  • fatigue

The symptoms may be severe enough to impact your quality of life. They can also increase the risk for additional health problems.

Given the long-term nature of Crohn’s disease, it may be worth looking into disability benefits. This can help offset the costs of management and help pay for unexpected expenses surrounding potential complications of the disease.

How Can You Fix Your Gut? Bacillus Spores

Bacillus Subtilis

What are Bacillus Spores?

Bacillus subtilis is a bacteria that is commonly found in water, soil, air and decomposing plant residue.

This spore has an extraordinary ability to survive harsh environments such as extreme heat and acidity. More importantly this spore is found in your gut. 

In fact, it’s one of the “good guys”. You want bacillus subtilis spores in your gut.

These are the spores which produce endospores that make positive changes to your gut and support your immune system.

You’ve probably heard that increasing the diversity of your gut microbes is a good thing. You’ve maybe even taken different formulas of probiotics. Maintaining a proper ratio of good spores in your gut is crucial for maintaining good gut health and a strong immune system.

That’s a big reason why many people take probiotics for conditions like Leaky Gut, IBS, Crohn’s, and Ulcerative Colitis. If you have been taking probiotics and still not finding relief you may want to consider taking Bacillus Subtilis spores and here’s why.

Why Bacillus Spores?

  • Bacillus Spores are resistant to the harsh stomach acid environment which allows it to get into the digestive system and do its work.
  • Bacillus Spores are able to suppress the growth of harmful bacteria.
  • Bacillus Spores strengthen the mucosal lining and enhance the growth of other good strains such as lactobacillus spores in the gut.
  • Bacillus spores significantly repair damage to the intestinal lining in the gut. These tight junctions, when not performing optimally, allow toxins to leek into the bloodstream. (Leaky Gut) Click Here to Read More
  • Bacillus spores play a role in reconditioning the body’s metabolism. When combined with a diet rich in healthy fibers and low sugar, this spore turns the body into a fat burning machine. Microbiologist Kiran Krishnan has been studying spores for the last 15 years, he says, “If there wasn’t reason enough before to improve gut health, this probiotic spore might now be the one “magic pill” we’ve been seeking for long-term, healthy and sustainable weight management”

Which Probiotics Contain Bacillus Spores?

We recommend Perfect Pass Probiotics to our clients. Perfect Pass contains 3 pharmaceutical grade strains of bacillus spores.

These bacillus spores are able to survive stomach acid. They make lasting changes in the gut to heal the gut and provide relief of symptoms.

Each of these bacillus spores has a distinct function and synergistically contributes to the combined effectiveness of this probiotic.
