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
Is Rice Healthy
Hey guys, Axe here, of naturalmedicine. Today I'm going to be answering the question, quot;Is rice healthyéquot; and specifically,quot;What's the difference of white rice versus brown rice, and are either of them healthyéquot;My answer is it really depends on you. In this tutorial, I'm going to share with you thepros and cons of rice as well as go over what I believe to be, by far, the healthiest riceavailable today, that I believe a lot of people could start consuming and seeing great benefitsfrom. There is actually a debate today about whetheryou should be consuming rice or not. Now people in the Paleo diet community preach that everybodyshould be completely grain free and not consume
grains whatsoever. So those people tend tosay rice isn't healthy. Whereas people in the Chinese medicine camp, people that believein traditional Chinese medicine or vegans would think that rice can actually be an incrediblesuper food. I really believe that there is some validity to both, but it really dependson the person, and more important than that, it depends on the preparation, on how therice is prepared, to depending on if it's healthy for you or not. Now let me start off by talking about thetype of rice you should stay away from, and that's refined white rice. Now I'm not talkingabout jasmine rice or basmati rice, which
tend to be white rices. Those have not beenprocessed. But some of that sticky white rice where the fiber has been taken out of, that'sthe sort of rice that most people want to stay away from. Reason is there's a recentmedical study that found those that consume that type of white rice are twice as likelyto develop diabetes compared to those that consumed a whole grain brown rice. Most ofthat white rice today that you'd consume at a Chinese restaurant or fast food place, they'vehad the fiber taken out, they've had the vitamins and minerals taken out. So that type of rice,you want to stay away from. So that's sort of the con there of rice.
The other con against rice or just rice ingeneral is that it contains a compound called phytic acid or phytates. Those are mineralblockers or enzyme inhibitors. That's what causes sort of the density and the hardnessof the rice, and it keeps you from absorbing and digesting all the vitamins and minerals.So that's another negative. Then rice has certain types of protein thatcan be difficult to digest as well. So all of those are big cons that go along with rice. Now let's talk about the positives. The positives,if you get a whole grain brown rice, brown rice or wild rice is high in vitamin B3, knownas niacin. That's really, really important
for your heart health and cardiovascular system.So it's high in B3. It can also be very high in selenium. We know selenium actually supportsthe thyroid as well as the kidneys, and so, again, selenium is a crucial vitamin or mineralwe know that rice has. Also, certain types of rice contain GABA.That's GABA. That's a neurotransmitter that supports the brain. It helps reduce anxiety.It helps improve sleep. It can even support metabolism. So we know, in certain cases,rice can be an incredible super food. Now it really comes down to this, to answerthe question, quot;Is rice healthy, or is brown rice healthy,quot; it has to do with how the riceis prepared. I believe if rice is soaked and
sprouted, that kills off the phytic acid.It then unlocks all the vitamins and minerals. It's now a healthy rice versus most ricesthat aren't germinated or sprouted, aren't as healthy. That's why this is the rice that I personallyconsume at home. I'm not tied to it in any way. It's just what I actually consume. Thisis an organic rice by a company called truRoots, and it's actually a germinated brown rice.That means it's been soaked and sprouted, which kills off phytic acid. You may noticethis. For some people, brown rice or rices tend to be very hard to digest, and that'sbecause the rice hasn't been sprouted. So
