We always start with the same question, “Do we need to start by addressing motility issues first? Do constipation, diarrhea, heartburn/reflux, nausea, bloating, burping, and severe bloating in any combination exist?” If so, these need to be addressed first. If these don’t exist, then step 2 is a fantastic place to start!
Yes, addressing leaky gut can have a significant impact on health.
Yes, bacteria imbalances can lead to slow motility which causes even worse bacteria imbalances. Once motility issues exist, cleaning up bacteria and fungal imbalances is almost impossible. Addressing bacteria imbalances is secondary to addressing motility issues.
Most people have not found success with gut health because they didn’t begin in the right order.
Step 1 – Gut motility issues (and acid issues)
Step 2 – Gut clean-up
Step 3 – Gut build out
Yes, a lot of people can start with step 2 (if they don’t have any signs of gut motility issues).
No, if a person doesn’t believe in leaky gut (increased intestinal permeability/endotoxemia) they don’t need to leave mean comments. Please just move on! 😉
