The mucosal layer needs to be addressed when fixing leaky gut issues - gut health, reflux, heartburn, food allergies, histamine intolerance

The mucosal layer needs to be addressed when fixing leaky gut issues - gut health, reflux, heartburn, food allergies, histamine intolerance

Why worry about the mucosal layer? In order for you to fully address the whole of leaky gut issues, you really need to help address the mucosal layer too. Let's start off with some simple points:Reflux or heartburn? 🔸Your gastric mucosal barrier (for example) defends against acid.🔸You really want to sooth that mucosal layer and help rebuild it.🔸The mucosal defense mechanisms protect the stomach from HCL and noxious agents. Food allergies? 🔸"The mucosal immune system uses several strategies to prevent inappropriate immune reactivity to harmless antigens derived from the food and microbiota."https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/medicine-and-dentistry/mucosal-immune-system#Histamine intolerances? 🔸Poor DAO activity is a sign of...

When dealing with BOTH diarrhea and constipation, address the constipation first - gut health

When dealing with BOTH diarrhea and constipation, address the constipation first - gut health

When in doubt start with slow motility issues first (please). ⁠⁠There are many people who suffer from both constipation and diarrhea. Many of them will say they have mild/occasional constipation but frequent to severe diarrhea. They are surprised when we recommend they start with addressing mild/occasional constipation before addressing the frequent to severe diarrhea. ⁠⁠When a person addresses bad rapid motility (diarrhea) issues before mild slow motility (constipation) issues ⁠(A) it doesn't work⁠(B) they get really bad constipation (no more rapid motility issues, think screeching halt) ⁠(C) many experience leaking or seeping into their clothing.

Cold and flu season (including RSV, Covid-19, etc) has hit really hard this last year.And it's not over yet. We're still in the thick of it.If you suddenly have these signs (and you are even on a protocol with Silver Fern™), is it a possibility you actually have a virus, not other gut issues? Yes.

Why should you worry about supporting the mucosal barrier? - gut health, reflux, heartburn

Why should you worry about supporting the mucosal barrier? - gut health, reflux, heartburn

Why do we suggest taking Reflux-Mucosal Support and Regularity-Motility Support if you don't have reflux/heartburn or constipation? Both Reflux and Regularity contain MucoSave™. MucoSave™ helps support the mucosal barrier much quicker than any other ingredients we have found. While this process does help a lot with GERD issues (reflux, heartburn, nausea, stomach aches, constipation, etc.), it is also amazing for helping with other issues people such as: leaky gut issues, bacteria imbalances, inflammatory problems, food issues, etc. When we build a full protocol on Instagram, we try to cover everything we possibly can because (to be frank) when most people ask...

What is magnesium citrate? - gut health, constipation, laxative

"I'm not on a laxative. I take magnesium for my constipation. It's natural."⁠⁠Magnesium citrate, oxide, and other forms of magnesium are used as laxatives all the time. Non-laxative forms of magnesium are magnesium glycinate, magnesium -threonate, etc. ⁠⁠To be super clear, so I don't offend anyone, magnesium is a great supplement. I like it. Our company likes it.

Adults and children are prone to low energy and fatigue the next day. "In this prospective long-term study of 833 twins and genetically unrelated adults, the researchers demonstrated that how effectively someone wakes up during the hours following sleep is not associated with genetics, but rather four independent factors: sleep quantity/quality the night before, physical activity the day prior, a breakfast rich in carbohydrates, and a lower blood sugar level following breakfast."https://www.prevention.com/health/sleep-energy/a42125238/scientists-discover-secret-to-waking-up-alert-and-refreshed-study/Guess what causes a lower level of...

A FODMAP diet may not be the right thing for you - gut health, bloating, gas, reflux, diarrhea, constipation

The low-FODMAP diet may lesson issues associated with IBS and SIBO. But long-term, this diet isn't sustainable nor is it healthy for your gut. Why do you struggle with FODMAP foods? 1. You may lack the enzymes needed to digest them2. You may have an overgrowth of gut bacteria What's the answer? High doses of immunoglobulins (8 to 10 grams for 30 days and 4 to 5 grams for 30 days) are shown to reduce SIBO and IBS issue by up to 75% in 8 weeks. We find that by then combining immunoglobulins at a regular dose of 2 grams...

Why should you address GERD issues first and then constipation? - reflux, gut health, heartburn, bloating

Why should you address GERD issues first and then constipation? - reflux, gut health, heartburn, bloating

What if you have both GERD issues and constipation problems? Start by helping the GERD issues. Acid blockers contribute to constipation. If the acid blockers are causing the constipation (in part or entirely), it is wise to start by addressing those issues first. After your GERD issues have improved and you are not locked on acid blockers but still have constipation issues, then address constipation issues. There are not quick fixes to helping with big issues. GERD issues can be helped faster than constipation issues though. Once the system is turned off or has slowed down it takes time to help it...

Very restrictive dieting may cause additional issues - gut health, hormones

Dieting may be the cause of your health issues. We all get pumped to hit our weight loss goals in January. However,The odds are against you with these type of weight loss programs.

But eliminating dietary fiber and prebiotics can be very harmful to the microbiome, which is what helps manage the metabolism. If you starve your microbiome, you may be killing your metabolism that way. Restricted low calorie diets over extended periods...

Immunoglobulins are a beneficial & natural way to clean up the gut - gut health, detox

Immunoglobulins are a beneficial & natural way to clean up the gut - gut health, detox

How do you get a better gut cleaner than a pure concentration of antibodies (IgG, IgA, IgM)? Immunoglobulins are antibodies. They are the same thing. This is by far better than colostrum. Yes, colostrum contains antibodies, but it is not a concentration of antibodies. ImmunoLin® is a concentration of immunoglobulins. The body naturally attacks foreign invaders by sending out antibodies/immunoglobulins. “Won’t loading up on antibodies spike the antibodies in my blood? What if they are already elevated?”Oral antibodies stay in the digestive system, bind and eliminate toxins (like E. Coli, C. diff, H. pylori, LPS, etc.), and decrease immune activation....

How does poor gut health effect weight gain? - probiotics, metabolism, weigh loss

How does poor gut health effect weight gain? - probiotics, metabolism, weigh loss

Wondering how the gut causes weight/fat gain? This cycle feeds on itself AND when it keeps being reinforced a person can’t exercise and diet themselves into weight/fat loss. Let's talk stress and high cortisol. They also cause bacteria imbalances. But since gut bacteria manage stress responses, leaky gut and inflammation can make stress reactions worse by driving up cortisol levels even more. Stress/high cortisol levels and dysbiosis feed off of each other in a vicious cycle. There are genetically skinny people that can make skinny and gut problems co-exist. Lucky people. I'm jealous. There are very driven people whose lives...

What makes Ultimate Probiotic different? - gut health, probiotics

What makes Ultimate Probiotic different? It addresses the key to gut health: microbial diversity. Does loading up on billions of CFUs of key lactobacillus and bifidobacterium strains hit the mark for your gut health needs? No. Loading up on certain lactobacillus and bifidobacterium strains can definitely be good. No question. Science agrees with that. So, I am not saying these are not beneficial probiotics. But for someone looking to go directly to the underlying needs of the gut, large and impressive reseeding probiotics may not be the best answer. I get asked almost daily, "How do your probiotics compare to...

How do I know if I have SIBO? - gut health, probiotics, SIBO

If you have frequent or chronic bloating mixed with either constipation, diarrhea, or constipation and diarrhea coupled with more bloating from healthy foods and fibers it's easy to assume you have some form of SIBO. When a person says that probiotics kill their stomach, that's also a good indicator they have some form of SIBO. Frequently, people will take antibiotics to help with their SIBO. Sounds like a simple solution, EXCEPT much of the time the SIBO will come right back. SIBO is a dysmotility problem. What part of antibiotics helps with motility issues? When building gut health protocols, I...

A natural and effective alternative to laxatives? Yes, please - gut health, constipation, bloating

A natural and effective alternative to laxatives? Yes, please - gut health, constipation, bloating

The common and short-term answer is laxatives. Let's face it. Laxatives and forced bowel regularity is great for short-term constipation relief. That's what they do. ⁠⁠But what do you do once you want to get beyond short-term solutions? I've heard the answer is a lifetime of MiraLAX. Ouch. That sounds interesting. ⁠⁠What about natural long-term help with constipation? (Magnesium citrate/oxide/carbonate/malate, senna, cascara, aloe vera, etc. are all laxatives.) Natural yes, but still forced bowel regularity.⁠⁠If you want a more natural and correct way of helping with long-term regularity, please consider the Constipation Plus Kit. If you have long standing laxatives...
