Leaky Gut Syndrome & Paleo

Are you familiar with ”leaky gut syndrome”? Those with this condition have increased intestinal permeability which may represent one of a myriad of environmental triggers for many autoimmune diseases in genetically predisposed individuals. A variety of foods that have been a part of the Standard American Diet (SAD) along with foods that are still considered ‘healthy’ can actually promote this condition, including dairy, gluten and sugary foods.

Eating Paleo-friendly meals with an added caution for nightshades and hot chili peppers is an easy way for those who are predisposed to avoid gut-compromising foods and actually start to heal, along with balance probiotics and nutrients designed to heal and repair the gut lining like glutamine, NAC, berberine and zinc.

Get clean and tighten up those loose junctions!

Antioxidant-Rich Brain Foods

Food For Thought! Patient Success Story..

A very special friend and patient of mine came to see me for added focus and mental clarity at work and throughout the day. We got started with her diet and lifestyle, and as you can see, she quickly added in some of these brain superfoods and is loving how much more energy she feels already. Check out this savvy gal’s Office Friendly (and doctor approved) Snacks for the day. I am SOOOO proud of her! Hopefully you can learn something too…

”Thanks to your awesome explanations and positive reinforcement, I hope you are as proud as I am of the food selection I brought to work today”
