The Health Edge 27: Gut Balance-All health Starts Here

J & M cartoongut_title

In this episode of The Health Edge John and Mark review the link between gastrointestinal balance and health. They explore leaky gut or intestinal permeability, SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), and dysbiosis as common causes of both gastrointestinal health concerns like GERD (reflux), IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and many non-gastrointestinal health issues e.g. asthma, eczema, autoimmunity, headaches, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, etc.

John and mark review common labs for consideration in the assessment of gut imbalances and briefly review a 5-R approach to gut health:

R- remove offending triggers

R-Replace e.g. digestive enzymes

R- Repopulate healthy flora with plant-based fermentable fiber, fermented foods and probiotics

R- Repair using lifestyle strategies and supplements

R- Relax, stress reduction

  1. I know you guys, and you know me. This has been an unbelievable podcast. As you know, I believe the gut is critical for mouth health since I am a periodontist integrating nutrient-dense food and primal lifestyle with gum treatment for my patients. My slogan is “Your Gut. Your Health. Your Choice.” Thanks for presenting this information for all to embrace – easy and critical to understand. I also am excited in the new medical research using Fecal Microbiota Transplants.
