Hey guys, Axe here, of naturalmedicine. In this training tutorial, I'm going to talk to you about IBS natural treatmentsand the IBS diet. And IBS stands for Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and I'm going to go throughthe four steps, specifically including diet, what foods not to eat, supplements and lifestyleon how you can heal IBS syndrome. And I've worked with thousands of patients who havestruggled with IBS and laid out natural treatment plans for them, and I've seen them overcomeit. So I know you can as well, if you're a person or have a family member strugglingwith this condition. So first let's start off talking about whatfoods you have to stay away from if you have
IBS. Number one is going to be gluten. Ifyou are consuming gluten, that inflammatory protein and grain products that can causeIBS and I recommend for my patients with IBS at the start, for them to stay away from allgrain products, especially wheat products, but all grains to start. Now, later on aboutthree to nine months into care, sometimes they can add in some sprouted grains or sourdoughgrains. But from the start, that first three months, going completely grainfree is important. Also staying away from casein or conventionaldairy products. Lactose, the sugar in dairy, in casein, can be problematic. Now doing kefiron the other hand, can be greatly beneficial
or a fermented dairy product, but regulardairy products, especially milk, can be absolutely destructive for IBS. Some of the other things you want to be carefulof and stay away from with IBS are pretty obvious, hydrogenated oils. Those cause intestinalinflammation. Also, raw foods. That's right. Salads, raw fruits and vegetables and rawfruits can really damage the gut if you have IBS. So you really only want to be consumingcooked foods. Also, stay away from cold foods. Ice water, ice cream, anything that's coldis actually hard on the digestive system. Then of course, any processed food, refinedfood, packaged food, get those out of the
diet if you have IBS. Now, here are the top healing foods for IBSor the IBS diet. On the IBS diet you want to consume foods that really nourish the colonas well as nourish the spleen. The first category is going to be white immune boosting foods.So again, white foods, think cauliflower, onions and garlic. Cauliflower steamed isvery easy to digest. Garlic and onions when they're well cooked are great for killingoff bad bacteria in the gut, and also have immune boosting benefits. The other group of foods is going to be foodsthat nourish the spleen and that is especially
going to be squashes. Things like butternutsquash, sweet potatoes in some instances, acorn squash, spaghetti squash, but doingsquash is very nourishing to the spleen and to the colon as well. And then in generaldoing a lot of bone broth soup. Bone broth contains amino acids, proline and glycine,which make up collagen which helps to repair and heal the intestinal lining. So bone brothshould be the number one super food you consume to help heal IBS. On an IBS diet, the perfect meal is whereyou get out a Crock Pot, you put in some organic meat, whether that's beef or chicken. Thenyou're going to add in bones, you're going
to do the broth itself along with the organicmeat and then also vegetables, things like squash in there, celery and carrots are great.Onions are great in there. But doing a bone broth soup for most of your meals is one ofthe fastest ways to help you heal from IBS and a great part of an IBS diet. Step 3 in healing IBS is taking the rightsupplements. I recommend number one, to get a quality probiotic supplement into your dietand the problem is 90% of most probiotic supplements today are dead by the time you take them.So take a live probiotic supplement. They contain several things. Number one, againgood quality probiotics like lactobacillus
How To Cleanse Your Colon Naturally
Hey guys, Axe here, of naturalmedicine and founder of DrAxe . In this tutorial I'm going to talk to you about how tonaturally cleanse your colon and really go through the exact steps and the best foodsand herbs and supplements you need to cleanse your colon naturally. I'll say most of these other colon cleansesout there that people are recommending are sort of fads. They're not really going towork longterm. What I'm going to teach you here is really how to do this over severaldays, but then also how to keep these different things incorporated in your diet longtermin daily life that's going to naturally help
cleanse your colon. The truth is your colon doesn't necessarilyneed a lot of help but just needs no interference. For a lot of us we're consuming differentfoods and doing things on a regular basis that are really sort of blocking our colonup and keeping it from doing its job. So the number one step you need to follow in cleansingyour colon is eliminating processed refined foods and fast foods. So again, anything thatis a packaged food, anything that you're buying, let's say, at a fast food restaurant, we knowthat those foods are going to cause intestinal inflammation. So step number one, get ridof the processed foods.
Now my top foods, I'll go here in workingorder of the best foods for cleansing your colon. Number one is fermented vegetables.If you're not consuming fermented foods like sauerkraut and kimchi, you've got to get thosein your diet. So the number one thing is start consuming sauerkraut or kimchi every singleday. The number two way to start cleansing yourcolon is to start consuming more probioticrich foods in the form of fermented dairy likegoat's milk kefir, and goat's milk yogurt. We know those are the highest foods in probiotics. Step number three, eat apples. Apples haveincredible benefits at cleansing the colon.
They've got pectin, a specific type of fiber,as well as quercetin that can really help cleanse the colon. So again, apples are probablythe best fruit when it comes to cleansing the colon. The next here, another sort of fruit, is avocadoes.Now, avocadoes are great because not only are they one of the most fiber rich foodson the planet, but it also contains large amounts of potassium and magnesium. Potassiumand magnesium are the top two minerals that you need in order to start flushing out yourcolon. You know sodium and salt makes you hold water; potassium causes you to startto flush water and toxins from your system,
and magnesium helps loosen the muscles andrelax the muscles of the colon so you can have easier bowel movements and bowel function.So again, avocadoes are an amazing food because of the healthy fats. The magnesium and thepotassium and the fiber make it a great food for naturally cleansing your colon. The next thing you want to naturally cleanseyour colon is flax seeds, or specifically sprouted flax, another amazing fiber richfood that's loaded with omega3 fatty acids. We know flax, just adding a couple of tablespoonsin a morning smoothie, can naturally help cleanse your colon.
The next thing is an herb called triphala.Now triphala has been used in India and Asia for centuries as a natural tonic that cansupport colon function. So if you want to really support your colon, triphala is anincredible herb you want to look into or an herbal sort of remedy. That's TRIPHALA.Triphala is again very, very powerful, very strong at supporting your overall colon health. And then last but not least, getting moreclean water. About eight glasses a day of pure clean water is great for naturally cleansingthe colon. What this should look like is this. What I recommend if you want to do, let'ssay, a weeklong, sevenday colon cleanse,
