Gaps Diet And Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable Bowel Syndrome IBS causes and treatment

so, you've got irritable bowel syndromewhat do you do about it nowé well anti spasmodic tablets that your can prescribe will help but an awful lot of this is downto you. You can make an enormous difference to your symptoms, maybe not get rid of them completely but certainly learn to manage them The first thing to think about is the stressin your life. I know it's really difficult to address stress,especially if you're feeling unwell at the same time

but it's a vicious cycle. If you're morestressed you get more symptoms if you've got more symptoms you can get morestressed. Take a long hard look at how you might be able to cut back the stress in your life. Next,let's think about diet and actually that can have an impact on stress as well really importantly eat regular meals. Don'trush, don't eat them on the go sit down to eat them regularly and try toeat at a leisurely pace, that really can make a difference. Missingmeals

can also make a big difference so tryand make time regularly. In terms of what you're eating at those meals, that also is key, andthat slightly depends on what kind of IBS you've got if diarrhoea if your big issue, you may wantto avoid fibre, and certainly limit fibre. If constipation is your big issue, some forms of fibre may really be able to help, but whateveryour symptoms are you may find that limiting the amount of fruit thatyou eat to maybe two or three pieces

a day, and eating certain kinds of fruit and vegetables will make a bigdifference. For instance fibre, we tend to think of as wholemeal this, high grain that, actually there are two kinds of fibre. One of them iscalled soluble fibre, and the people who have constipation related IBS, soluble fiber may be really useful. Sofor instance substituting oats for wheat and highgrain

foods, can make a big difference. Oats are really high in soluble fibre. Whatever you do, don'tsprinkle bran on your cereal or eat a high bran cereal for breakfast that's insoluble fiber that can makethings worse. other sources of soluble fibre mightinclude strawberries aubergines, broccoli and so on if you're going to have fruit, you maywant to take the skin off it because a lot of fruit including thingslike plums and pears

have soluble fibre, but they haveinsoluble fibre on the skin. It's kind of turning the usualrules about fibre on its head but see what works for you. Do make sureyou drink plenty of fluids but that's nonalcoholic, nonfizzy fluids and you may want to reduce the amount ofcaffeine you eat drink some people are very sensitive tocaffeine that's not just in coffee but also in tea and chocolate, just be aware. You may find

Candida Case Study 3 Trudy Irritable Bowel Syndrome

I'm going to do another case presentation.This will be case presentation number three. This is out of my book, Candida Crusher. I'mjust going to read an excerpt out of that. This patient's name is Trudy, and she's 62years of age. Let's start. If you're a health care professional, this will be a typicalcase that you will see. You'll recognize a lot in this case.Trudy came to see me not that long ago complaining of irritable bowel syndrome. She'd had ongoingconstipation and diarrhea for over 10 years. Too many to remember she told me. Trudy hadbeen treated for irritable bowel syndrome by every practitioner she'd seen and was neverconsidered to be a person to have a serious

Candida yeast infection. Because she toldthem all that is what the medical had diagnosed her with several years ago, IBS,so of course, once she was labeled as an IBS patient, irritable bowel syndrome is whatit was and that's what all the practitioners basically treated her for. Monkey see; monkeydo. I've heard it all before. I call it parrot talk. If you keep parroting the same thing,people start copying that. And even many natural practitioners and even some top professionalsshe saw treated her for IBS, so they looked at various IBS diets. The SED diet, the GAPSdiet, the Paleo diet, you name it; she's been on every kind of diet this woman.I've written here, they were the natural practitioners

who had placed her on strict exclusion dietsand the allergy diets, and the had treated her several times with antibioticsbefore he washed his hands of her and placed her in the quot;too hardquot; basket. The bowel specialistconcluded there was nothing the matter with Trudy after all the standard investigationslike colonoscopy, endoscopy, abdominal xrays, and countless blood tests all came back asbeing normal. I've heard it all before. I've written here also, whenever I teach studentsabout digestive problems, I say, quot;If the health professional diagnosed IBS or if you can'tfind the reason for the patient's digestive malfunction, suspect an immune problem underpinningit, usually there's Candida not far behind

or dysbiosis, bad bacteria, parasites. Youcould find Blastocystis in there and Dientamoeba. There could be any one of a number of differentbugs underpinning that that no one has really diagnosed.quot;Trudy mentioned that she had an itchy scalp. And on close inspection, I noticed that bothher big toenails were thickened and discolored. We completed a stool test and there it was,yeast in all three stool samples. But not only yeast, she had also several other bacteriaand parasites present, which is typical of a chronic ongoing yeast case like this. Theopportunity exists for such a proliferation of dysbiosis; hence the term quot;opportunisticinfection.quot; Trudy had a stool test completed

years ago, but was only tested for basic pathogenslike giardia campylobacter, pampas pyridium and rotavirus, and nothing really came up.Many s, if they do a stool test, a convention would do a very narrow test. When Ido them, I tend to do a broad test, so I look at a whole range of different things.This lady used to work in a daycare center, so she was only really checked for children'sinfectious bowel diseases, so they basically missed the boat. All results were negativeand Trudy left with no answers. Of course, if all the professionals come back with NAD,nominal at diagnosis, the patient develops increasing anxiety. They start getting mooddisorders. They start drinking more. Swallowing

all kinds of antidepressants and they justgo from bad to worse. One of my biggest disgusts with conventionaltreatment of digestive complaints is the routinely overzealous prescribing of antibiotics. I'veseen this with thousands of patients over the years where antibiotics just destroy people'sguts. They just get sicker and sicker, to the point where the s wash their handsof these patients. They just get rid of them. Discard them for what I call a quot;low hangingfruit.quot; They look for other patients they can make money out of or give more drugs tobecause what can they doé You make someone sick enough, you can't treat them anymore,just get rid of them because there's plenty

Leaky Gut Syndrome Causes Symptoms Risk Factors How To Reverse Leaky Gut

Thanks for checking out this comprehensivetutorial today. In this tutorial, I'm going to talk about leaky gut syndrome. It's a functionalcomplaint that's often been maligned by medical practitioners. Before I delve into it, I justwant to read out an email I got from a firstyear medical student from America regarding leakygut. I wrote an article on EricBakker regardingleaky gut, and this is what this particular student wrote. She says, quot;Mr. Bakker, leakygut syndrome is pure naturopathic nonsense. It's just like adrenal fatigue, just anotherfictitious manmade disease. Many people confuse adrenal fatigue with Addison's disease, whichis an actual, real and diagnosable medical

condition when you don't make enough cortisolin your glands. This can only be diagnosed by your real , and various tests areneeded to diagnose this disease. Candida is bullshit, too. It is possible to have a fullbody fungal infection, but you'd be in the intensive care unit nearly dead.' Signed,Miss so and so. This is a very interesting email from a person,obviously a firstyear medical student, so I'll forgive her for her ignorance. When Iwas a medical student, I was quite ignorant, too, and had a lot of strong opinions aboutthings which I know now 27 years later I've got completely different ideas about. It'sinteresting and I think back at my dad who

was a very pragmatic man, and Dad said thatopinions are like bowel motions. We all have them from time to time. Sometimes some peoplehave more or less. Sometimes people are full of these things and just pass out bowel motionsall the time. Almost like verbal diarrhea. And that's what we've got in this case. Aperson with verbal diarrhea. So I'll forgive this person, of course, because she's a medicalstudent. And if she happens to see this YouTube clip, I welcome her to contact me when she'squalified and maybe 10 years down the track when she's settled into a practice a bit moreand overcome a little bit of that verbal diarrhea. Let's now have a look at leaky gut syndrome,what the condition really entails. Leaky gut

syndrome is not a fictitious disease. In fact,there are many different research papers in mainstream medical journals that have beenwritten about intestinal permeability. It's certainly not fictitious by any means. Whenwe examine the small intestine, there are three sections to the small intestine. Thefirst part, which connects up to the stomach, is called the duodenum. And in America, Ibelieve they call it the duodenum. The duodenum contains quite a lot of intense solar activitythere in terms of digestion. In fact, there's a very small section at the beginning of theduodenum which is about 75 to 90 mils that contains most of the person's immune functionactivity of the whole digestive system. We're

talking about probably three or four inchesof bowel, which is impacted with an incredible amount of immune cells.It's estimated that about 60 percent of a person's immune activity is located in thesmall intestine, and probably three quarters of that is in the first three to four inchesof that section of small intestine. If we examine the small intestine and open it up,it has a surface area of about a tennis court. It's remarkable. You may see some pictureson the internet of what we call villi and microvilli. Villi are basically, I'll drawa picture for you. They're small, funny shaped objects like this. That's a villi and a villilooks a little bit like that. Microvilli are

basically the little projections that runoff the villi. You can see those. If you have a look closer, we've actually got even smallervilli that run off those. The point I'm making here is the surface area is dramatically increasedbecause we've got a huge amount of digestive area that we're looking at.If you look at the microvilli, little fingerlike projections, there's basically one cell layerthat goes around the microvilli. These cellular junctions in a healthy person are very tightand wellcontrolled spaces. And the body does this to allow very well digested particlesof proteins, carbohydrates and fats to get through to the circulatory system. These foodcomponents have to be broken down to the tiniest
