Best Diet Approach To Cure Leaky Gut Syndrome

Best Diet Approach To Cure Leaky Gut Syndrome


Thank for checking out my video. We’re going
to do a video today on leaky gut. Basically, the best foods and diet to heal a leaky gut.
As you’re probably aware, I’ve done quite a few videos on this channel. I’ve been around
for a while now. This is my 27th year of practice. I’ve been seeing patients an awfully long
time, and I’ve seen every diet you can imagine. Just look behind me and look at all the bookshelves.
I’ve gotten a few comments on how bent my bookshelves are. I made those when I was a
student, quite a long time ago now. I’ve got thousands of books. In fact, I’ve got two
bookshelves here, another bookshelf here, I’ve got three bookshelves out in the back,
and I’ve got boxes out in the back with more books that my wife won’t allow me to have
in my room because it looks too crappy, she says, for patients.
Let’s talk a little bit about books, for example, and diets. There are thousands of diet books
out there. I’ve seen so many of them. I’ve been collecting books on health really since
my 20s. I’ve read lots of books and I’ve looked at lots of blog sites on the best kind of
foods to eat for leaky gut. I can remember reading about the Paleo diet when people weren’t
even around that started thinking the Paleo diet was like the “in” thing. There is a guy
called Chris Kresser online in America who’s very big with this Paleo diet. I read this
book here, Paleolithic Prescription in 1988, before it even became a fad. It’s all a fad
now. And this book here is pretty cool, Native Nutrition. Again another book from the [80s
and 90s]. I read all those books when I was in my 20s and started to realize people need
to eat common sense, basic foods. It’s not rocket science.
You probably know this book, The Gaps Diet. Another good book from Liz Lipski, Digestive
Wellness. A good Irish friend of mine, Dr. John McKenna, books on the stomach. Nourishing
Traditions from Sally Fallon. The list goes on and on. Everyone has got their own take
on what are the best foods to eat. And everyone who comes out with a book like The Body Ecology
Diet, The Specific Carbohydrate Diet, the blah, blah diet, the blah, blah, blah, blah,
blah, blah diet. There are millions of diet books out there.
What you’ve got to try to get through your mind is no diet is going to be specific for
you. So when you’ve got The Specific Carbohydrate Diet, why don’t we call it The Specific Jane
Diet, The Specific Joe Diet, or The Specific Mary Diet? In my writing and teaching, I’ve
always maintained that there is no such bloody thing as one diet that suits hundreds of people.
That’s why I would never write a diet book as such myself.
If you looked at my Candida Crusher book and also in my psoriasis program that I recently
launched, you’ll find that I really emphasize a point that I want you to try to find the
foods that best suit you as a human being, not me or Donna Gates or not Sally Fallon
or not Natasha Campbell-McBride, not Chris Kresser, not all these other people. They’re
not bloody gurus. They’re just people who write about diets, and they give you options.
They give you recipes, but you need to experiment with these things. Every person who buys these
books or who sees me who’s been on a program, they always end up modifying those programs
to suit themselves. Many people tell me that when they’ve gone, for example, on the Body
Ecology Diet; they find they can eat certain foods that Donna Gates says that they should
avoid. And it’s the same thing when people go on any other diet like the Gut and Psychology
Diet. I’ve had a patient recently who’s been on
the SCD Diet, The Specific Carbohydrate Diet, for about four years hard out and not feeling
better. So I got this guy and his wife and two children, they’re all on the diet, to
make modifications. I said, “Look, it’s time to introduce bread.” “Oh, no. I can’t eat
bread. On the SCD diet, it says it’s toxic. It’s poison.” But when I got his wife to eat
some bread, just flat bread, chipati kind of bread, she felt good. In fact, she gained
a bit of weight. She improved. And then after a couple of weeks of observing his wife doing
this, this gentlemen did the same, and he felt fantastic. And he started to realize
it’s not good to maintain a strong dietary protocol for a long period of time. Especially,
if you get very anal and constricted about it. To me, it’s like trying to brainwash somebody
into a religious belief and telling him or her that everything else is nonsense out there,
and only his or her way is the highway. Eventually, any kind of diet you go on will
be broken and you’ll end up reverting back to foods that you like to eat, foods that
suit you, because we can’t be social lepers all our lives. We can’t maintain very ultra-strict
dietary protocols and piss everybody off around us. It just doesn’t work. Trust me, I’ve worked
with patients long enough to tell you this. You end up annoying the hell out of people
around you. People that you love, friends, they just think that you’re a bit of a dick
after a while. And sooner or later, you want to eat foods that you’re not allowed to eat.
You want to go back to those foods again. So you need to experiment.
So let’s talk about food choices that are going to be particularly good for leaky gut.
I’m not going to go into what leaky gut is because I’ve explained that in another video.
But leaky gut essentially means digestive permeability. Medical practitioners think
this is a load of crap. Well, I don’t really care anymore what medical practitioners think.
Because in my opinion, most people in the western world have some element of LGS or
leaky gut. Why? Because people drink alcohol. Because they take antibiotics. It’s because
they lead high stress lives. It’s because they do things that compromise their gut function.
That’s why. We’re starting to learn a lot about the gut.
Foods for leaky gut. Common sense guys. Common sense. It’s the foods that your great grandmother
used to eat. It’s foods that your great grandparents never bought in supermarkets. It’s not rocket
science. All of these diet books bang the same drum. No sugar. No alcohol. Keep away
from highly refined foods. I’ve been trying to chant this mantra now for like 30 years
with patients, and I’ll be chanting it for another 20 or 30 years. It won’t make any
difference to me. The trends, I couldn’t care less about the trends.
Fermented and cultured foods. These are foods my grandmother used to eat. Foods I’ve been
eating for a long time. Foods that Donna Gates seems to think are magical foods, but people
have been eating cultured and fermented foods for hundreds of years, nothing new about it.
And they will for another few hundred years. Try to get used to some kind of cultured or
fermented foods. I received an email recently from a patient
stating that her naturopath said that cultured and fermented foods breed Candida. They make
bad bacteria in the body. What a load of crap! They don’t do this at all. Cultured and fermented
foods improve the ecology of the gut. They make the gut high and rich in a lactic acid
environment, which encourage the production of lactobacillus. I would be a bit cautious
about Kombucha, for example, made with lots and lots of bags of white sugar. But generally
with things like a quality yogurt or a kefir or a kumis, there are many other kinds of
cultures, you’re going to be fine with these kind of food approaches in your diet.
Same with sauerkraut and the same with kimchi from Korea. Good food. But what about seaweeds?
No one talks about seaweed when it comes to ecology of the gut. When it comes to specific
carbohydrate diets or things like that. Seaweed is extremely mineral rich and has been eaten
by a lot of people around the world now for tens of thousands of years. Seaweed, in fact,
contains the highest amount of mineral content per gram than any food on the planet. So try
to include some of these. The Japanese have been eating sushi for a long time now. Go
and check out some of my writing on seaweeds in your diet, small amounts are extremely
healthy for you to have. Vegetables, there are tons of vegetables that
are fantastic for improving the integrity of the large intestine. I’ve also written
an article about foods, for example, Jerusalem artichoke, asparagus, kiwi fruit, there are
many foods that improve the integrity of the gut. But when you put the whole package together,
stress reduction, cutting the crap out of your diet that you know you shouldn’t have,
stop these takeaway pizzas and soda drinks. Stop late at night eating over your keyboard
with a pizza trying to think you’re going to improve your health like that.
It’s the total package that improves the leaky gut. It’s not just the food you eat. I really
want to stress that. All these diet books I look at, they’re too anal about what you
eat, but they don’t talk much about what you live and how you think and how you feel. Because
these are classic indicators to me on why people don’t repair their leaky gut. So there’s
no rocket science behind the best foods for healing leaky gut. It’s a healthy, balanced
diet and you should know those kind of foods that you should be eating. It does make a
lot of sense when your gut is playing up in the initial stage, to cut out a lot of carbohydrate
foods because they make you bloat, fart and create bowel problems. That includes breads
and carbohydrates. It’s basic. But I wouldn’t go to the extent of taking out brown rice,
quinoa, amaranth, buckwheat, rye, every single grain because a book tells you that every
grain is poison and toxic and will cause cancer and take ten years off your life. This is
a load of crap. Too many books talk about this.
I’ve spoken at length about antibiotics in the food chain causing more problems than
you can poke a stick at. In America, hundreds of thousands of tons of antibiotics get poured
into the food chain. These are issues that concern me, rather than omitting every bit
of gluten from your diet. Maybe gluten is not the big bad ogre that you think it is,
at least until you stop drinking every drop of alcohol and you stop eating any foods containing
antibiotics. If you do those two things first, then let’s have a look at if gluten is going
to be a problem in your gut. These are things I want you to think about.
Basic, common sense. That’s what a leaky gut diet is. Healthy food. Healthy snacking. Not
snacking on takeaway food. Not eating late at night. Common sense. So all these diet
books, up to you. You can read them and get indications on them. But remember, you need
to experiment because what’s right for you is not what’s right for Natasha Campbell-McBride.
It’s not what’s right for people who write all these books. You are your own guru. That’s
really the message I want to break through with this video today. You are in control
of your diet. You know what’s right for you. You know what’s going to aggravate or make
you feel good, so it’s up to you to experiment with this kind of approach.
Make sure you do my yeast infection quiz on CandidaCrusher.com and check out yeastinfection.org
and also EricBakker.com. That site is undergoing a makeover at the moment. That’s going to
have a lot of fantastic articles for you to read further. And you can always see me as
a patient. Remember, you can book through my online booking system.
Thanks for tuning into my video.

    What is your views on consuming animal protein? And specifically dairy. Do we need the extra cholesterol in our body or our body can produce it on its own to a satisfactory extend? Cause some people say that if the gut flora is rich in good bacteria we don't need the input of extra cholesterol since they can produce it for us. Thanks!

  • Alex K says:

    What if conventional meat is your only option at the moment? I don't think it's that bad.

  • thorsten376 says:

    Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge! I've been walking around with leaky gut, for a year found out 3 months ago, by some special doctor, not a normal doctor, because they al coudln't find my cause of the constant restlessness, tiredness, brain fog, but i also had very low b12 , because i had multiple anesthesia, but now my b12 is leveled with injections again, but i still feel shit because of the leaky gut,

    You say that you feel brain fog you lose sharpness, memory loss, I got al of them and i wonder do it get it back after the gap is fixed or is the damage permanent, I really wonder because it disturbs me i'm a athlete and timing is the most important aspect of my sport, the doctor also found i had a huge neurotransmitter defincy,( Over a year he said) Last question i don't know if you ever heard of the psychedelic brew ayahausca, i had good experience with it a few times , then i had a antibiotics, because of those antibiotics i got the leaky gut in the first place, but i did ayahausca, and i had a very bad trip, ahd some epilepsie kind of attack, though i was gonna die, i'm 21 years old. Do you think my brain can recover from all the damage ? Thank you in advance !

  • thorsten376 says:

    Could you please give me some advise on the message i wrote below thank you !

  • smithraymond09029 says:

    No alcohol at all? That I can't fathom.

  • CraftsAndMore315 says:

    I have to laugh. I "like" you. You talk straight to people and don't beat around the bush or make thing all frilly sounding. You are real, truthful, and honest, and I really appreciate that about you. The reason I had to laugh because you are so open and honest and you just tell it like it is. It is refreshing. ūüôā Thank you. Christine. P.S. I'm on your channel because I need help.

  • Becky Shock says:

    How is the no fats with carbs rule, eg, a meal with meat / protein, and veggies and a little fat. or a meal with carbs and veggies and no fats?

  • PGSxSoccerAcademy says:

    Amazing Video with a direct attitude thank you sir! I've been struggling with acne and I believe it's a problem with my gut, hopefully I can find the right diet for me aswell as the best lifestyle. Its all trial and error baby!

  • RJSoftware2000 says:

    Have you checked into the Glyphosate connection? It's now banned in France. Glyphosate kills important gut bacteria. American farmers spray it on food prior to harvesting. Sure glyphosate is non toxic to human cells. BUT it's toxic to many of the gut bacteria that we depend upon.

    In Russia it is against the law to sell GMO and related glyphosate. Prison sentence to those who do.

    France recently banned glyphosate.

    America you better go organic.

    Youtube Stephanie Seneff and glyphosate.

  • gotitan says:

    Thanks for your candid approach to the whole aspect of how our health is just a reflection of our lifestyle and how we have a choice for a good life. I just discovered you looking for answers to my varicose veins. I see you have  a product Canzita and do you think my broken down veins is caused by Candida.

  • Farnhamification says:

    Excellent video! Very sound advice.
    Just as an aside, has anyone told you that you remind them of D-Fens from "Falling Down"? It's a compliment.

  • CraftsAndMore315 says:

    Hi, I was wondering if you would do a video on food allergies also. I will put it in the search box on your channel to see if you have done a video on it already. Thank you. And thank you also for sharing with us.

  • Iamin1975 says:

    Your video resonated with me very much as I am dealing with RA this past 2 months without any medications but homeopathic remedies.  Leaky gut is what i am healing as well.  I like to simplify everything i do so this video was perfect.   thank you

  • mugabo22 says:

    Information on the web on what to do or what not to do to heal the gut is so different that it confuses people alot. Your information is logical and makes complete sense. I read somewhere that when trying to heal a leaky gut one shouldnt work out, its hard for me because working out helps me clear my head and also clears my sinus that is otherwise always congested, is there any truth to this?

  • BRITS PRODUCTIONS says:

    I Have had leaky gut for a while,i have followed the Gaps-diet but as i do not eat meat,bone soup is out of the question.I have done so well on LGlutamine Fermented cod liver oil ,aloe vera juice,and make my own soups with lentils kale,veggies ,wich seems to work so far.I might try the Candida suplement you mentioned,thankyou all good info you suplied

    do fos cause bloating? I have been taking a probiotics supplement which contains f.o.s and I started to get gas and bloating lately, which feels weird because I have been doing really good lately, avoiding foods that cause problems for me and eating only whole foods, taking probiotics, eating fermented and cultured foods and taking l-glutamine. I am just trying to understand what I am doing differently…

  • E M says:

    Hi, I was diagnosed with having Hashimoto's and thyroiditis. I was advised by my doctor to stay away from refined foods and gluten, which I have been.
    Right now I'm on a smoothie and juice regimen and have ceased taking my thyroid medication. Would you recommend I continue as I have been or not?

  • E M says:

    Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

  • Mahejabeen Abedi says:

    Thank you Sir. i have been suffering from Candida and LGS from the last 3 years. It has literally played havoc in my life. As of now staying away from too much sugar and bakery products. I realised these two affect me badly each time consume it. Cakes , Breads Buscuits , sauces from the bottle etc. Symptoms are rashes on the face , Gas , Bloating , Fatigue and itching. Your explanation makes a lot of sense.

  • phiyaboi says:

    Any comments on Spirulina? Ive been drinking shakes made with (fresh quality) Spirulina powder for maybe 4 years now…ive also read in peer reviewed studies it has been shown to proliferate good bacteria among other things. Just wondering if this is solid Science?

  • Boss Ji says:

    It's so true, gluten sensitivity is something we people enable. It really doesn't feel like something inherent, can't be.

  • Gabriel Ortiz says:

    My first time seeing one of your videos and I agree with you about thinking holistically at our lives rather than just our diets. I cannot remove bread completely out of my life because living in a world where I'm "forbidden" from touching bread, it stresses me way too much and that might make me more sick than the bread itself…LOL!

  • Evie Ball says:

    Amazing! Needed to hear this.

  • Jan Coldwater says:

    SUBSCRIBED! I wish you were in America! Thanks so much!

  • Philosophie des Gesundwerdens says:

    Just eat real food! It¬īs really not about food, it¬īs about a holistic and healthy lifestyle. Stop using harsh chemicals on your body and in your house, implement regular relaxation measures, do something that fullfills you and gives you a purpose. Sunlight, movement, fresh air. Play more. And find what fits for you. We all have different metabolisms and thanks to God even human beings still have an instict on what is right for them. It will come back when we stop eating flavored, artificial foods. The truths always lies in between. How can we expect that one human being can give us the answers to life? I was always so focused on foods and there has grown such a big industry around these elimination diets, but this can¬īt be the last answer. I for example can¬īt tolerate fermented foods due to histamineproblems but this just indicates underlying causes which I¬īm working at. And how can we say for example: Meat is bad? How were the animals raised, fed, how was the meat processed, stored, cooked, what oils were used for cooking, with fresh herbs or dried moldy stuff? So who can really say what the problem is. Sorry for the long rant, bottom line is, I totally agree with you. Fortunately im such a foody that I was never satisfied with the answers that I got an kept digging.

  • Jade Rose says:

  • Lisa Casey Comedy says:

    Are lentils good for leaky gut?

  • giveyouashot says:

    I agree with everything that you say BUT you should mention that in order to get rid of leaky gut, one needs to get off any and all pharmaceutical drugs.

    I did everything you mentioned but still kept my prescription drugs. It took years before I realized that all this diet is no good if you are still on your prescription drugs.I got off them and in three days, my aches and pain went away. Forget antibiotics, all pharmaceutical drugs will tear a hole in your gut NO MATTER how great your diet is.

  • Jade Rose says:

    Thank you Eric ‚ėļūüĆł

  • D Q says:

    Hi, Eric, what's your view on kinesiology? I used to have lots of "healthy" food but didn't realise that some made my leaky gut worse. I did one test with Kinesiology that pointed out some healthy things that my body doesn't like! However I don't know much about Kinesiology, please advise, thanks!

  • citygurl0105 says:

    could you please give some guidance as to what to do when your food allergies are severe and include onions, garlic, greens (lettuce, cullards, kale, bananas, grapes, etc….I am at such a lose with my serious health issues. Nothing has helped including my three health professionals, although they try.

  • zerothehero123 says:

    Thanks for the sane advice! It indeed comes down to common sense. I understand now that no food we know humans eat should be abolished, but that the quality of those foods matters the most.

    how about bone broth

  • noddingcedar says:

    I have been essentially bedridden for three with stomach/intestinal problems. no conventional testing shows anything, and sibo has been resolved (if it was present), parasites have been treated for. does this seem like a case of leaky gut? I've also been dealing with rashing, mild cough and at times frequent urination. tx

  • mirela bordean says:

    Thank you Eric, one question ( don't know on which videos…). leaky gut and fresh garlic and onion? Doesn't upset the lining?, if it's stomach I can tell straight away if upsetting, but so many foods get together in the small intestines, don't they irritate??

  • Redat23 says:

    What about time frame for healing gut, this is the only thing I never see anyone answer satisfactorily?

  • Sandy239 b says:

    Can you please talk about the GMO food and candida problems?

  • Michael The Sociopath says:

    There isn't a "perfect diet". Humans are omnivorous creatures, that like many other adapt to their surrounding. There's only a "what to eat", "what not to eat" and specific protocols to follow of you have an illness. The fact we adapted to both glucose and ketones shows that a high carb/protein or low carb/protein diet isn't the best, more like a mix of both as it's much healthier to have dynamic metabolism. It's even healthy to have a tiny bit of inflammatory food now and again, to exercise the bodies defence system and prevent it from overreacting to certain foods.

    I would be very careful of recommending fermented foods to people who have histamine issues or for an issue like i have which is not being able to clear D lactate and some lactobacillus strains produce D lactate in the body which can cause many symptoms.

  • Steve H says:

    Very nice. Sometimes we need someone to remind us of simply using our common sense. I needed this ^-^

  • Elena Sistemi says:

    Hi Eric! I' m from Italy, love your videos 'cause it' s really interesting the way you focus on supplementation through the right nutrition..anyway, what do u think about collagen and bone broth powder to help during the healing process?

    You were talking about cultured food, I was wondering if it would be good if you have a yeast allergy?

  • g mask says:

    I stopped eating sugar and processed foods and now I have a terrible nausea that wont go away ūüėĘ is it a side effect? I also started eating more often, since i was eating only twice a day.

  • David Walker says:

    I find very little take-away value from this video. The first considerations in healing the gut are killing the bad bacteria and the yeast. The healthiest foods and the best supplements will not help you until you do that. Fasting and taking spore based probiotics and yeast killing supplements are the first priority. It is basically microbiological warfare and you must think of it as such.

    This is the best educational video I have ever seen on Leaky Gut:

    I like your approach to health in general. There seems to be a major psychological element to health longevity and well being.

    What about dill pickles, are they safe to eat on this diet?

  • Kripton says:

    At least, someone who doesn't make a boogeyman from bread.

  • Eva ŇĹateńćkov√° says:

    Hello Eric, I love your content, you helped me a lot. My question is: Can I have a cup of an organic coffee time to time (once a month), if I'm healing leaky gut? Or at least decaf organic coffee? Thank you for your respond. ūüôā

    #1 most important thing is EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT. With that said, I think most leaky gut patients will benefit from excluding sugar/bread,milk products from their diets and include bone broth, L glutamine, DGL licorice, cabbage juice, slippery elm , and Vit C , potassium , clean water , . Some people claim high fiber helps leaky gut issues. I ate some fresh green beans from my garden, and the fiber in them caused me the worst pain ive had . High fiber makes things worse for my leaky gut.

  • dave himlin says:

    Some people claim L glutamine did not help them. Evidently Glutamine must be taken properly to have benefits. Take it on empty stomach, with water that is not Hot . Also some articles claim you need to work your way up to .5 grams of glutamine per kilo of body weight, in order to see results. Many people only take 2-5 grams per day and that may not be enough to help rebuild the intestine walls. Im taking 30 grams per day and working my way up to 50 grams per day and im seeing improvements.
