Do you have a leaky gut?

Do you suffer from sinus headaches, allergies, asthma, chronic fatigue, lethargy, brain fog, acne, autoimmune diseases like lupus, scleroderma or rheumatoid arthritis? If so, it's likely you may have a leaky gut. Leaky gut is a condition where the intestinal tract becomes too porous.  When this happens undigested food particles and chemicals/toxins that should be eliminated escape through these pores and into the blood stream and eventually all over your body.  These particles and chemicals are looked upon as foreign invaders triggering our defense system resulting in inflammation and auto immune reactions.  As the intestinal tract becomes damaged and more particles pour in, the inflammation increases. Often anti-inflammatory/pain killers are taken to relieve the discomfort.  The reality is, someone that has taken ibuprofen for 9 years still has pain and discomfort, and potentially has made the problem worse because they create more agitation to the intestinal tract and make it even more dysfunctional.  So here is a classic case of a dog chasing its tail.  If the leaky gut is not corrected then the person is doomed to continual health problems that become less and less responsive to temporary fixes. 


How is Leaky Gut Treated?

The first step to correcting leaky gut syndrome is to change a patient's diet.  We start with a detox program for three reasons. First and foremost they have to stop ingesting processed and chemically laced foods that will make the condition worse.  Second, our detox shake helps to heal the liver and its ability to eliminate cellular waste.  This helps reduce inflammation and provides specific nutrients to help the gut lining heal.  The third step is to balance the structure.  We utilize advanced Applied Kinesiology (AK) diagnosis and treatment to stimulate specific points that balance the body and help the gut lining heal faster.  These points speed up the body's healing by over 50%.  Finally through AK diagnosis again, we prescribe nutrients specific to each individual's case to finish healing the gut.  Several key vitamins , minerals, enzymes and herbs play a role in healing leaky gut syndrome.  

Which foods are best for a HEALTHY GUT??


Staying away from processed foods with additives, preservatives, artificial colors and flavors are key.  Eating whole foods, wild caught fish and fruits and vegetables grown without the use of chemicals is also important.  In addition - the Super Foods listed below are truly SUPER as they provide the highest levels of nutrients we all need and that our bodies crave for good health.

Feature Food of the Month - Wild Caught Salmon


Wild salmon is delicious, high in protein, and is loaded with beneficial omega-3 fatty acids. Eating wild salmon 2 to 4 times a week will restore fatty acids and vastly improve your cellular health.

You can reduce high blood pressure, stroke and heart attacks tremendously by eating the omega-3 rich wild salmon. Omega-3's found in wild salmon reduce the stickiness of platelets and red blood cells, keeping the blood thinner and the circulatory system functioning optimally.

We have seen hundreds of patients come to our Lab with "clumped blood", elevated blood pressure and chronic aches and pains.  We can restore cellular health and circulation with the administration of omega-3 rich foods and supplementation.
