BASIC diet for Leaky Gut

Posted by Helping You on June 06, 2002 at 21:07:02:

I have put this diet together based on the most sound scientifica findings about diet and intestinal health. Most people get themselves in trouble by following the ill-advice of some nutritional gurus that either mean well but don't have a clue, or are just out to make a buck. For any of you that have done deep research into diet and intestinal health, the following info will not be a suprise to you. For others, this may be an eye-opener. Just for the record, this work is not MINE, I didn't create it or discover it, I have merely acknowledged it and I am choosing to share it with all of you.

When I used to search the internet for "leaky gut diets", the typical recommendations were to avoid red meat, dairy, fermented foods, gluten grains, many spices and condiments, as well as other foods depending on what the source of the information. Many also recommended eating a low fat diet. The TRUE leaky gut diet, is NOT a low-fat diet. Eating low-fat if you have leaky gut is a good way to continue worsening it. Fat soluble vitamins such as VITAMIN A can only be asborbed in the presence of fat. Vitamin A is also crucial to healing the lining of the intestinal tact. Without enough fat, we can't absorb vitamin A and deficiency develops. The same is true with all of the fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamins D, K, and E. These are VITAL to the health of the intestinal tract. Another problem with low-fat diets concerns protein. Protein without fat is not well-absorbed. If one was to eat a large amount of protein with no fat, up to 60% of the protein would be undigested and would lead to a multitude of immune reactions. After all, proteins are responsible for the immune reactions found in food allergies. Fat and fat-soluble vitamins are needed to break down the protein. The last thing you want, is to create MORE food sensitivities. Another "health practice" taken up today, is the practice of eating low-salt diets to avoid "high blood pressure". Here is yet another example of well-meaning advice gone bad. Salt is needed for the production of hydrochloric acid and pancreatic enzymes. Without these, our proteins do not get broken down and we suffer from protein deficiency, mineral deficiencies, and immune reactions. The key to healing the leaky gut, is to fully digest and ABSORB your food so that immune reactions do not take place. There are many ways to increase the absorption of your food. Eating some raw food with each meal will provide the enzymes necessary to begin the process of breaking down your food. Since we are most concerned about the digestion of our protein, steps must be taken to ensure adequate protein digestion. Eating our proteins with our fats are one step. Using a small amount of seasalt with our proteins is another step. A third step would be to eat some lactofermented food with the proteins. lactofermented foods such as raw sauerkraut help to break down proteins into individual amino acids which makes digestion in the small intestine more thorough. Raw foods also provide enzymes that spare our pancreas and can contribute to a strong immune system. A meal comprised of entirely cooked foods will cause a sharp rise in white blood cells following the meal. A meal of entirely raw foods does not cause even a miniscule increase in white blood cells. All we need is a moderate amount of raw food with each meal. Fortunately, there are many ways to get raw foods into your meal and I will list them shortly. Here's a fourth way of helping youself digest proteins more efficiently. Eat a gelatin-based soup or have a gelatin-based gravy or sauce on your meat. Geletain not only increases the absorption of the protein, but it keeps the gastric mucosa in EXCELLENT condition. The gelatin I am refering to is NOT the kind you make jello with but the kind that forms naturally during broth-making. "Nourishing Traditions" by Sally fallon contains instructions on making gelatin-based soups, sauces, condiments and stews that will help you digest your protein and will even help heal a leaky gut. Back in the early part of the 20th century, gelatin was used to cure colitis with excellent results. This was, of course, before the advent of antibiotics. So, the key to healing a leaky gut with diet is by eating foods that both compliment each other and contribute to the COMPLETE digestion of the food. Of extreme importance is FOOD PREPARATION. Many people have grain allergies due to the way they eat them. Grains contain anti-nutrients can and will injure the GI tract. The same holds true for nuts, see

ANIMAL PROTEIN:
grass-fed beef
free-range poultry
organic game meats such as ostrich, venison, deer, buffalo
DHA-enhanced eggs (yolks can be eaten raw)
Organic Organ meats
Deep ocean fish such as Alaskan Salmon, Sardines from Crown Prince = farm-raised fish is contaminated with mercury
**NOTE** = grass-fed beef can be eaten raw if it is first frozen for 14 days. This will effectively kill all parasites. Recipies for raw beef are in the book. Also, the more cooked the meat, the less-digestible the protein. I recommend eating the meat raw, rare or medium-rare. DO NOT try this with conventional meat. The risk of infection is greatly increased

FATS:
Cold-pressed organic olive oil (dark, imported)
Cold-pressed flax oil (in small amounts. combine with sesame oil for a balanced omega 3:6 ratio)
Full-fat Coconut milk (THAI is a good brand)
Coconut oil (great in cooking and stir-frys)
Avocado
Cod-liver oil (use in the winter and early spring)
Fish oil (use during late spring through the summer)
Soaked nuts and seeds
Raw cream
Raw butter
Raw milk
***A special note on milk. Raw milk has been consumed for thousands of years with no ill-effects. It is a great source of vitamins A, D, E, selenium, which are needed for the integrety of the intestinal tract. Go to wwweatwild.com to try and get a source for raw dairy. Goat dairy would be even better as it is more digestible***

VEGETABLES
All non-starchy varieties are great. Steaming is the prefered method of cooking. Always put butter on your vegetbales in order to absorb the minerals that will help heal your gut. Avoid any food you don't agree with.

Vegetable juices from non-starchy vegetables are excellent. A great juicing program can be found at www.mercola.com. I recommend adding raw egg yolk, cod-liver oil, or coconut milk to the juice in order to absorb the fat-soluble vitamins and minerals

Starchy vegetbales such as sweet potatoes are excellent but should not be eaten without a liberal amount of butter or cream or else you will spike your blood sugar. In general, starches are best kept to a minimum.

GRAINS
Real Sourdough breads
Sprouted-Grain Breads
Sprouted Quinoa
Soaked Buckwheat
Soaked Amaranth, Teff, millet
Soaked Brown Rice
Soaked Spelt
**These are the most tolerate grains but avoid any that you don't tolerate. The sprouted-grain breads and sourdough breads are treated more likea vegetbale in your body than a grain. Limit these to 1-2 servings per day.

LEGUMES
All are good but preprare properly and don't overconsume. In fact, most of these are best avoided during acute phases of leaky gut

NUTS/SEEDS
These must be soaked overnight. Most varieties are healthy even during leaky gut. Buy raw, organic, unhulled nuts and hull them yourself. Soak them overnight and dry them in the oven. This minimizes allergic reactions to them. Have them in strict moderation as they were never meant to be eaten as main meals

FRUITS
For the purposes of leaky gut, choose low-sugar varieties such as granny smith apple, ALL berries, grapefruit. Berries go well with raw cream, apple goes well with raw cheese. Berries also go well in yogurts and kefir drinks

LACTOFERMENTED FOODS
Chutneys
Miso
Tempeh
Sauerkraut = See Nourishing Traditions
Kefir
Yogurt
beet kvaas
ketchup (homemade)
Mustard (homemade)
Mayonnaise (homemade)
***Have a small amount with each meal you eat. They supply lactic acid, probiotics, enzymes, antioxidants, and enhanced nutrients to your intestinal tract plus they help contribute to the absorption of the entire meal. They change the pH of the colon which drives away bad bugs. lactofermented foods are a BIG part of the diet

BEVERAGES
Decaffinated Grean Tea
Peppermint Tea
Ginger Tea
Lactofermented beverages
Reverse Osmosis Water

CONDIMENTS
ALL of the ones listed in the lactofermented group are ok plus the use of seasalt. There is no reason not to enjoy sauces, gravies, salad dressings, and mayonnaise on your foods. If these foods are made with raw ingredients, they provide fat-soluble vitamins and live enzymes which will help you digest your food better.

RAW FOODS IN GENERAL
raw fruits
raw salad vegetables
raw condiments, dressings
raw meats, egg yolk
raw lactofermented foods
raw cold-pressed oils
**Do not put raw foods on VERY HOT FOODS. Any food heated more than 118 degrees destroys enzymes. Consume your food warm, not hot**

SUPPLEMENTS
I only like wholefood supplements. Gardenoflife is my favorite company so far. Go to www.gardenoflife.cc to see their products. If you do the diet perfectly, you will not neede them.
Azomite mineral powder is a cheap but effective mineral supplement
Cod-liver oil
Fish oil
____________________________________________________________
I hope I didn't miss anything. OH, here's a list of avoid foods or foods to limit:
Wheat
Rye = unless soaked, sprouted or fermented
Oats
Barley

Corn
Peas
Potatoes = Limit these foods
Beans
Other starchy vegetables

AVOID
Shellfish
Farm-raised fish
conventional meats
polyunsaturated fats from corn, cottenseed, soybean, canola oil
hydrogenated fats from processed foods
SUGAR including honey (it's still sugar)
Margarine
Store-bought condiments
____________________________________________________________
I hope this helps. Feel free to comment on this. I could post specific facts on many of these foods but it would take a long time. Here is a raw protein shake that is excellent:

8oz raw kefir or yogurt
1 tbps. raw cream or 1-2 raw egg yolks or 2oz coconut milk
1 cup berries
1 tbsp goat milk protein (Goatein)
**this is 100% raw and will be easily digested**

I just wanted to add that the more cooked the meat, the more toxins are produced in it. I don't know if that applies to all foods or just animal based.

You missed grapeseed oil!! Its so much nicer to fry with than coconut oil or olive oil and also tastes great in a salad dressing. Its so much lighter and tastier than the other two, not to mention the large amt of vitamin E in it.

The rest of the diet looks great and you are a real sweetie to post it. I found the nourishing traditions book last year here in a dutch library!! Was totally shocked but loved the book. I don't have to do too many of the recipes in it though cause they still use alot of those traditions in europe.

Culturing the pastuerized milk DOES add enzymes back to the milk and thus makes it a healthier beverage. If that's all you can get, it's probably better than not doing it at all. Just don't drink the milk without making it yogurt or kefir first

Grapeseed oil

Hi Barbara,

I didn't post Grapeseed oil because it is too high in omega-6 fatty acids, the very kind that most people already get too much of. If you have your omega 3:6 ratio at an ideal level, I see nothing wrong with it occasionally but it is not as good as coconut oil in that coconut oil contains a special fatty acid called "lauric acid" that stimulates the immune system and has antimicrobial properties. Thnaks for posting it though

Yes. This applies to MOST foods. As soon as food begins to become overcooked, the entire chemical structure of the food is changed. This is especially true for charred or burned meats which you already mentioned.

Sometimes I'm lucky to be living in the north of holland LOL I go to the farmer's market, ask the goat cheese lady for some milk and the next week she brings me a small bucket of it. And it only costs me 2 euros which is around 2 dollars. Because I don't know her goat personally (although they do have a picture of their goat hanging on their stand LOL) I heat it gently before making the kefir.

In Reply to: BASIC diet for Leaky Gut posted by Helping You on June 06, 2002 at 21:07:02:

Thanks so much for that HY. Makes things soooo much easier.

Now a few questions.

1. Can I use olive oil instead of butter on my steamed vegies.

2. I cook red meat medium rare, but I dont freeze for 14 days, is that ok?

3. You say that if you are going to have carbs have fat with it, so would it be ok to eat my chinese takeaway food, i.e. fried rice has lots of fat already in it. Sorry,
but its a once a week treat for me. I am pretty good most of the time.(LOL)

Thanks again.

All good questions!

1. You can use olive oil on your veggies
2. You can STILL eat the meat medium rare but there is SOME risk. The risk goes down if you use organic, it goes down further if you use grass-fed organic, and the risk is virtually eliminated when the grass-fed organic is frozen for 14 days but in general. There isn't much worry if you at least use organic meat. using conventional meat is not a great idea is you are going to cook it rare or medium rare
3. NO :-) I wish it were that simple but that wouldn't work. The fried rice you get at the chinese food store is mostly deep-fried and the major fat it contains is TRANS-FATS. Frying is not a healthy practice unless it is done at home, with very little oil, at a low temperature, and not for a long period of time. When doing that, coconut oil is the oil of choice for light frying (stir-frying) as it is highly saturated and very stable, even at high temperatures. I hope that clarifies things

Re: olive oil & frying

In Reply to: BASIC diet for Leaky Gut posted by Helping You on June 06, 2002 at 21:07:02:

Excellent recommendations - should be archived separately, as an article, so it would be easy to find it!

I have been uncertain about frying with olive oil. Some sources say that it has a higher boiling point than other oils, and can be used for frying. Others say that 'extra virgin, cold-pressed variety should not be used as frying changes the structures of fatty acids, and that we should use simpler forms for frying.

I don't know if this makes sense. Mediterranean people must have used olive oil for centuries. Oil and wine containers (amphorae) have been found on shipwrecks from 4000 BC. I assume they have been frying their food for a long time... But the 'simpler forms' have not been derived until recently...I can't understand how would they be better than the cold pressed olive oil?

What I do know is that temperature is crucial. The oil must not be overheated. If the smoke comes off it, it's burned, and should be thrown away.

I'd like to hear your opinion if you have a chance to answer.

Thanks

Thanks HY for the diet posting,

I do have a couple of questions. I am eaten a few raw egg yolks lately but am concerned about infectious diseases from them. An infection like salmonella (spelling??) could kill someone with leaky gut. I do use the best free range organic eggs I can find but am still concerned. Also do you have a favorite brand of extra virgin olive oil. I've done a little research and have found few are cold pressed, many say product of Italy and are not, and most have other oils in them. Colavita seems to be a good brand to me because it does not taste like petroleum was used in its extraction. It is dark and tastes pure. Any comments on the olive oils from anyone?
Thanks Jonathan

After searching the net, I see that "raw" dairy is illegal in the US. The FDA site says that all milk sold in the US had to be pasteurized. So following the LGS diet, should we now eliminate dairy?

The cream I am refering to should be RAW not pastuerized............RAW dairy IS legal in certain states such as California. Also, many small farms sell raw cheeses and milk products to the general public. Go to www.eatwild.com to find a source. If you can't find raw, have ONLY cultured milk products and only have them on occasion.

The concern of infection from salmonella is overstated when it comes to FREE-RANGE hens. They are much healthier and infection is quite rare. If you are concerned, don't eat the raw egg yolks until you are healthier and your body is able to handle what little possible harm already exists from the eggs. Always buy DHA-enhanced eggs. Gold Cirlce farms or Egglands Best are good brands

The brand you mentioned is an excellent olive oil. I get olive oil sent to me from an uncle in Italy. He makes it fresh on his ranch in Italy so, I don't do much searching on the market for it. Generally, most organic cold-pressed olive oils in dark containers with a nice dark color is going to be excellent. I hope that helps

A testimony of restoring digestion

Posted by R. on June 09, 2002 at 17:33:27:

In Reply to: BASIC diet for Leaky Gut posted by Helping You on June 06, 2002 at 21:07:02:

I scanned the following from Wise Traditions, a magizine published by Weston Price Foundation. It's a letter to them from someone.
------------------------------------------
A NEW MAN
My husband Richard and I have been married for nearly 11 years, and during that time, Richard has experienced serious, chronic gastrointestinal problems. He first became aware of these problems in elementary school, when his throat would sometimes seize up and close when he ate dairy food. During the last ten years, these problems primarily manifested themselves as extremely poor digestion and lack of energy. Richard could not eat or drink anything at all (even water) and "feel good" in his stomach. He frequently commented to me that his stomach felt "dead" and that the food he ate would remain in his stomach for 8-12 hours during which time he would experience constant repeating of his food. Ironically enough, his complete lack of digestive "fire" was accompanied by ceaseless cravings for chocolate ice cream.
In an attempt to avoid using pharmaceutical drugs, which we felt would surely lead to other chronic problems, we searched in vain for years trying many alternative therapies to solve Richard's problem, including acupunc- ture, herbs, cleanses, colonies, aloe, macrobiotic and several "antiinflammatory" diets, powders, enzymes and acid pills of all kinds. During one particular "cleanse," Richard ate nothing but rice, vegetables (raw, juiced, and cooked) and chicken/turkey for two months. Result: He got much worse.

I would frequently sit on the couch and sob when yet another therapy had failed to produce any measurable re- suits. With Richard only 36 years old, I could only imagine what problems were ahead of him in his 40s and 50s. A few weeks ago, we were casu- ally handed a brochure about Weston A. Price by our chiropractor. About the same time, a nutritionist working with Richard mentioned that he needed to start eating raw dairy. I contacted our local Weston A. Price Chapter and obtained one quart of raw cream and some pasture-fed ground beef to start out. As you can imagine, I was extremely skeptical of this approach to eating as my husband was supposedly allergic to milk products, and here we were trying to feed him raw dairy! That evening, I prepared for Richard a bowl of raw cream with a little raw unfiltered honey, organic bananas and blueberries. After about two hours, Richard commented to me that his stomach did not feel heavy and that he wasn't repeating his food as much as usual. I then purchased some raw butter and cheese and started him on that also. He also increased egg consumption to about a dozen per week. I began making beet kvass and several other fermented beverages, including kombucha, for him to sip with each meal to further enhance his digestion.

It has now been not even a month, and Richard is like a new man. He says that his stomach feels alive again and that he can eat even large meals with ease. He has cut out his enzyme and acid pills when eating at home, and we hope that his gastrointestinal tract will be healed enough in another few months that he won't even need them in res- taurants either. Most importantly, he has the energy and stamina of a 20 year old! I feel that his recovery is nothing short of a miracle and am so grateful for your pioneering efforts to get this information out to desperate folks like us. I now understand that Richard's cravings for chocolate ice cream were simply the crying out of his body for whole, unprocessed butterfat. Once he got this need filled with raw butter, cream and cheese, his cravings for ice cream disappeared along with his gas- trointestinal problems. I never could have imagined that so simple a solution existed for what seemed like an intractable medical condition.

This is a great testimony. I would really like to know how he fares out in the long hall. R, if you see any other articles like this, especially from people trying this approach for much longer, please post it. Thanks.

Not only did he get highly assimilable EFA's and nutrients, the raw milk contained enough enzymes to sufficiently digest the meal hence less "heaviness" after the meal.

Hi Helping You,

I read your post with interest. I find a number of points to be in line with my own conclusions over time. Some are different then I understood them. Still, right now, I am in BIG trouble with my digestive system. I have one over-riding problem that won't allow me to benefit from ANY kind of eating plan as I am having too much trouble eating anything.

I have an H Pylori infection and subsequent pain that I am assuming is probably an ulcer or at the very least a severely irritated intestinal tract lining.

I would love to try more of these ideas, but I can't right now. I would like to know a little bit about your situation if you wouldn't mind. Could you share whether you have had problems that you have addressed with this eating plan and whether it has been successful for you?

Thanks,
