Seven Ways to Heal the Gut Naturally
Although it is not always possible to completely avoid these factors (which adults cannot control, for example, whether he or she is born by cesarean section or breastfeeding), there are still many ways to improve gut health Naturally. The first step in curing the intestines is to avoid the destructive factors that have previously listed the gut microbiota and intestinal barriers.
We have learned that many factors that damage the gut microbiota, such as antibiotics and unhealthy diets, can also cause intestinal leakage, which is a predisposing factor in the development of many health problems.
In addition, there are special substances that can damage the intestinal barrier and cause abnormal permeability. Research has found that a protein called zonulin is a major culprit.
- Remove processed, inflammatory foods from the diet
Transition to a food-based, nutritious diet. Identify and remove foods that cause inflammation, such as gluten and dairy products. Inflammatory foods can be identified by food susceptibility testing or by eliminating diet.
- Add fermentable fiber
Eat large amounts of fermentable fiber in foods such as artichokes, onions, garlic, and plantains. These fibers promote the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria and help heal the leaking intestinal tract.
- Add fermented food
Fermented foods are rich in probiotics that help restore healthy gut microbiota and intestinal barriers. The sauerkraut, kimchi, Kombucha, yogurt and yogurt without pasteurization provide a rich probiotic. However, before increasing the intake of fermented foods, make sure you don’t experience histamine intolerance because fermented foods can exacerbate symptoms.
- Seek treatment of any intestinal pathogen
Intestinal infections are an important cause of intestinal disorders and intestinal leakage. If you or your client is currently seeking treatment for a functional medicine practitioner, please ask about the Genova GI Effects test or the GI-MAP test. These can identify specific bacteria, fungi or parasite imbalances that cause intestinal disorders.
- Emphasis on healthy sleep habits
Seven to eight hours of high quality sleep every night to support your gut health. I recommend sleeping hygiene habits, such as maintaining a regular sleep schedule and avoiding nighttime exposure to blue light. Blu-ray exposure can be minimized with blue blocking glasses and f.lux and Iris applications.
- Develop a practice routine
Develop a sustainable exercise program to keep your gut microbes in good condition. If you are an endurance athlete, you may need additional bowel support to mitigate the adverse effects of frequent endurance exercise on the gut microbiota, such as increased intestinal permeability.
- Management pressure
Decompression exercises, such as yoga or meditation, are part of everyday life. Mindfulness apps like Headspace or Calm can help people who are new to meditation.
