I was 23 working as a clinical dietitian wondering if I was going to get fired one day. I could barely pay attention during patient appointments, I couldn't retain new information, I was finding myself slurring my speech and forgetting important meetings.
The doctors prescribed me ADHD medications and told me this was my new normal. I felt crazy. I didn't want to live the rest of my life at half capacity.
My body was struggling just as much as my mind. My stomach would make embarrassing "whale" noises during meetings, I had to run to the bathroom in between patient appointments and I frequently had to leave the gym earlier than I had planned due to embarrassing gas.
Finally I realized I couldn't live the rest of my life this way. I needed a drastic change. After nearly 2 years of research and trailing different programs. I found answers. I combined some of the top functional medicine providers gut restoration programs to create the one I'm sharing with you today.
I share this program with you because I believe no person should have to live their lives like I was, afraid, angry and at war with my own body. Its time to heal. You don't have to live with your digestive symptoms and brain fog forever.
Leaky gut is a rapidly growing condition that many are struggling with. It can occur from consuming gut irritants or disruptors such as ibuprofen, alcohol, toxins and antibiotics.
Food particles from you gut "leak" into your bloodstream from small pores in your gut that are created from irritation. As these food particles enter the bloodstream your immune response ramps up and your fighter cells attack. Over time this immune reaction can cause chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation has been associated with a whole array of chronic diseases from heart disease, autoimmune disease, bipolar, thyroid conditions to anxiety and depression.
I'll be honest with you, a gut reset isn't for everyone. I knew what I needed to do to heal my inflammation, cystic acne, nutrient malabsorption, bloating and diarrhea (TMI SRY haha) for a long time but it wasn't until my symptoms turned into brain fog, slurred speech and some very terrible nutrient deficiencies did I commit to the reset.
If you're experiencing any of the following symptoms and are ready to do the work to heal this may be a good fit for you:
I've been to many functional medicine educational programs on this topic as I was working on my own quest for healing. I will say this you can google leaky gut and come up with 700 different recommendations for protocols. That being said there are 4 core components.
Remove: Irritants such as certain foods, alcohol, toxins, excessive sugar, NSAIDS & antibiotics.
