Leaky gut diet
The Leaky Gut diet is designed to help those with increased intestinal permeability heal their guts (intestines). Leaky gut is a condition (disease of civilization) where the holes in the intestines are too big and allow food particles and bacteria to pass into the bloodstream. Leaky gut can cause fatigue, inflammation, swollen glands, and rosacea.
The following are consumed on the Leaky Gut diet: grass-fed bone broth, raw cultured dairy (ie kefir, 24 hour fermented yogurt), steamed vegetables, fermented vegetables, healthy fats, and a small amount of fruit.
Foods thought to contribute to leaky gut and eliminated on the diet are: grains, sugar (in any form), cow dairy, unsprouted grains, and GMO.
Supplements to be taken on the leaky gut diet: l-glutamine, probiotics, prebiotics, fish oil (omega 3), digestive enzymes, and aloe vera juice.
