How to start the healing of your gut?
That is an excellent question. My previous blog explained that the gut is the port to health or death, and immunity and gut health are connected very tightly. If your gut is ill, your health is damaged!
You can’t be healthy without a healthy gut! To heal and have your health back, you need to heal first your gut. This is not difficult, but you need to be determined to be healthy and take the responsibility to do everything to heal. Otherwise, it is not possible. A natural diet is essential to healing your body!
Your whole body can’t heal if you are not changing your lifestyle! It is essential to change your diet and eat healthy, nutrient-rich food. But it is also vital to do colon cleanses and fasting. Your body needs a reset to recover, for example, to include fermented foods into your diet, as well as probiotics that heal your microbiome.
You will learn how to heal your gut, change your diet, and do walking or other body movements. Your healing is in your hands, making the right decisions.
Why Does Our Gut Need Healing?
Suppose you eat many carbohydrates like cake, biscuits, pasta, pizza, bread. In that case, you certainly know all the symptoms are coming with that, like developing lots of air, having a big swollen belly, being obstipated, experiencing belly pain.
This is the result of overeating sugar, combined with fat. By feeding the harmful bacteria in your gut, you create an environment where candida and other harmful bacteria strive. They begin to multiply and cover the gut lining, which reduces the excellent microbiome.
If your gut tissue begins to swell and becomes spongy, you have created a leaky gut where bigger molecules from non-digested food, fungi, bacteria, and parasites will be able to get into the bloodstream and everywhere in your body.
Usually, the gut barrier is where such particles and intruders are filtered to stay outside the body. The gut’s tissue inflames, and all kinds of bowel and other diseases develop.
If our gut lining is inflamed and damaged, our body doesn’t get the essential nutrients to work correctly. So you are malnourished and ill, even you still eat much “food.” And we do in the Western world!
How to Start the Healing of Your Gut?
To heal your gut, you need to stop eating bad food and, for a while, all food. Fasting for at least three days is a crucial step to give the body rest.
If you can fast for three days and only drink pure room temperature water, your body’s energy flows into repairing and detoxing instead of digesting food. That is a vital step towards healing.
The second step is doing colon cleanses with water and coffee. It is vital to get all that waste out of your bowels by doing colon cleanses at least three times a day. To remove all the garbage in the bowels takes up to weeks because the waste is pasted to the lining, and the bowels need help to get rid of it.
If you can fast for five days, that would be even better. After the fasting, you continue the colon cleanses and start with juicing vegetables and fruits; the best would be a blender from Vitamix. These fruit juices liquidate everything without leaving bigger particles in the fluid.
You must bypass the intestines by juicing the vegetables and fruits. The intestines don’t need to digest the food but get it offered liquid as it is chewed and digested.
The nutrients are still in the juice, and the body can absorb them into the bloodstream. This is a very vital step.
The whole digestion system has a break, and the body can concentrate entirely on detoxifying, repairing, and healing itself.
You will feel it; in the first days, you will suffer from headaches, tiredness, foul odor, flu-like symptoms. That is entirely normal. Getting all the junk food out of your body that you have eaten for years takes months and detoxifies the body.
But the reward will be great. Your skin might look bad for a while, but you could visit the sauna or take a bath in sulfur/magnesium water or sodium, and this will help the body detox via the skin. If you don’t have a bath, you could do a foot bath.
Very beneficial is the use of an infrared lamp on your liver, supporting your liver’s metabolism. Keep yourself warm!
When you have done the colon cleanses, the days of fasting, and the juicing for at least one to two weeks, you can start carefully with food with a vegetable soup or a bone broth. This gives you minerals and warmth; the bone broth helps the gut with healing.
Get yourself a green powder, which you could include in your juice. This will speed up your body’s repair mechanism. But keep cleansing your colon at least twice a week.
It is time to include an excellent probiotic to build up the microbiome of your intestines. You will feel better.
The flax and chia seeds offer fiber and will balance your hormones. You can also start with fermented food, miso soup. Don’t eat dairy products! But if you like, try a salad with a piece of organic meat or fish.
Vegetables like peppers, onions, garlic, cabbage you could better cook carefully. In a natural condition, they might be too much for your intestines. Later, after some months, you could try them again.
You will certainly feel better, and I would ask someone professional who will accompany your healing journey. Maybe a doctor who is open for that, or a dietist.
Why is a Colon Cleanse Essential?
I don’t know if you ever have heard of Gerson Therapy? This is a therapy founded by Max Gerson, who has healed people from cancer. This therapy has three pilers, detoxification, diet, and supplements.
People must follow an organic plant-based diet with raw juices, use coffee enemas several times daily to detoxify, and take supplements. By removing toxins and increasing immunity, you are going to restore your health. Charlotte Gerson followed her father and established the Gerson Institute, and their concept of healing is excellent.
Coffee as an enema opens the liver and releases toxins, which are pushed out through the bowels. It is caffeine that affects the bile production of the liver. The detoxification process is a vital step towards healing the gut and, finally, the whole body.
What to Do When You Are Healed?
The best would be to stick to your healthy lifestyle. It shouldn’t be challenging to keep it up because your body doesn’t grave any junk food when you give it the healthiest food ever, all nutrients included.
When you eat unhealthy food, your body is starving for nutrients, so it needs to eat more food and is not giving you the signal to stop eating. Leptin is the hormone that signals “stop” to the cells when the body has enough.
The cells get resistant to Leptin, so they don’t get the signal to stop and, you grave more food. Also, the harmful bacteria in your gut need more sugar to live and multiply. It is a vicious circle.
But when you are on a healthy diet, your signal functions and your good bacterias are multiplying, and your body is healthy. I can’t say it enough, stay with your healthy diet. Even you drink coffee or a glass of wine sometimes, it doesn’t matter anymore, as long as you don’t overuse alcohol.
Eat your veggies and fruits, seeds, nuts, or juice, eat some protein, plant-based or some organic meat, fish, as long you eat a little, but most time by eating vegetables you are on the safe side. Do incorporate mainly raw veggies and fruits, so you benefit the most.
Stop with junk food completely. Move your body, do colon cleanses, and include green powders and natural supplements. You will stay healthy, have lots of energy, and have healthy ageless skin, bones, and muscles. Try it! You will be amazed!
You know now what to do to heal your gut and reclaim your health. I would love to see you healthy and full of energy! The gut is the port to death or life. Did you know that? If we don’t foster our microbiome, we will undoubtedly get ill and finally die far too early.
Please do everything to recover and repair your body by starting to regain your health. It is not difficult if you are determined to heal!
