Whole Health Solutions always focuses on natural methods to support your body to begin healing without harsh medications. Treating leaky gut, which is often a key component of autoimmune or brain/mood disorders even when there are no gut symptoms, involves “the 5R’s”. These are: 1.) Remove micro-organisms, food intolerances, or other offending agents. 2.) Replace digestive secretions, such as enzymes or hydrochloric acid. 3.) Reinoculate with beneficial bacteria, called probiotics. 4.) Repair the lining of the gut with needed building blocks, anti-inflammatory herbs, and other factors. 5.) Rebalance lifestyle factors contributing to gut dysfunction: Sleep, exercise, and stress can all affect the GI tract. See information on the 5R’s of healing the gut.
