In this article, Dr. Gerry Mullin discusses inflammation, leaky gut, and pathogenic bacteria as the main hurdles for preventing weight loss. Although he recommends a general diet to heal these issues whereas we provide customized nutrition care we agree on the solutions: heal the leaky gut, heal the inflammation and add fiberous foods, fermented foods and probiotics.
Food sensitivities are the cause in many cases of leaky gut and the root cause of inflammation in many cases as well. Address food sensitivities properly and all we need to do is add in fiber, fermented foods and probiotics which has been our practice for several years. In addition, certain lifestyle factors destroy healthy bacteria so be sure to address chronic stress, manage sleep issues, and avoid antibiotics along with genetically modified and processed foods to keep your gut healthy.
