SIBO Diet + Juicing to heal Crohn’s


http://www.pinehurstmedical.com/downloads/GI/Diet-martin_scd_en.pdf

The link above provides a nice guide for what to eat and what not to eat if you have small intestine bacterial overgrowth which is one of the driving forces for Crohn’s individuals.  As you scan the do not eat side quickly you see sugar, bread/wheat and processed food items.  On the opposite side you see more natural foods and ingredients and I think that difference is obvious by now.  

Sugar – The white refined sugar that is added to most food these days feeds the harmful bacteria.  They thrive on it! Some people get gas pretty quickly after eating it and some even feel nausea shortly after.  The non-medical world is naming sugar as point for your body because it sets off this imbalance that is hard to correct.  

Wheat – This grain is not the same as it was long ago.  It is basically a mutated version and we are eating it in almost everything.  The worst of it that you can consume is bleached flour where they actually use bleach to get it bright white.  Wheat is inflammatory and not very easy to digest.  Flour also turns into sugar that then feed the SIBO.  

Processed Food – This is the worst of the two because it combines the two above in one food.  There can be many forms of sugar within the food itself along with wheat and other chemicals/preservatives.  This food feeds the bacteria and they can even control your cravings so that they can get the food they want.  

When you remove these foods the bacteria starve and your cravings get stronger.  You need to be strong and resist!  Add in the juicing and now you are destroying them and flushing them out.  At the same time you are flushing in vitamins, enzymes, phytonutrients and probiotics to take the place of the harmful bacteria.  

SIBO Juice Recipe:

  • 1 Bell Pepper
  • Kale
  • Parsley
  • Apple
  • Lemon
  • Ginger

The top three are your bacteria killers and provide you with a ton of chlorophyll.  The bacteria and yeast do not like this oxygen filled part of the juice.  The apple and lemon are there to help cover the bitter flavors.  The apple also cleanses out the colon and the lemon has anti-inflammatory properties just like the ginger.  

If you really can’t handle the green taste in this drink you can add more apple or possibly red grapes.  Even though this is sugar, it is not nearly as bad as white refined versions!!

Juicing4crohns : Not approved by the FDA


Image

Do you ever notice the words “not approved by the FDA” on labels for natural items?”  Why is it that the FOOD and DRUG Administration only approves anything drug related and not natural food based products? When you ask a doctor about juicing or a natural remedy they say “I could not find any studies on that to say it would be effective for your medical problem”.  There are no studies because natural remedies such as juicing or taking herbs DO NOT MAKE MONEY!! 

They choose not to study these natural ways because they know it will work for a potential cure.  When people are cured, they don’t need to come and see the doctor or purchase expensive medicine from the big Pharm companies. 

Juicing works! It is not a fad, but a new life style away from disease, symptoms, trips to the doctor and medication.  Stop thinking the FDA way.  Don’t even get me started on how well they regulate the food you eat daily!! Stop believing that there is no way out, but through large doses of medication.  Take back your health and keep the money in YOUR pocket. 

Do something different and commit to this free challenge for 30 days and send me a message after you feel awesome and are potential pill free.  Thank you!

Juicing Cabbage: Ulcers, Colitis + Crohns


If you have ulcers anywhere in your digestive tract, then you need to get some cabbage juice in there pronto!! Cabbage is loaded with antioxidants and contains many beneficial vitamins.  This wonderful veggie contains many phytonutrients that fight cancer and detoxify your body.  It works very well on ulcers because it contains glutamine.  This helps to repair ulcers and the lining of your digestive tract.  Cabbage has numerous health benefits and is easy to include in your daily juice.  I love to mix it with carrots, which are also soothing to the gi tract.  Here is a good recipe to start off with that even tastes good to boot!

  • 1/4 head of green/purple cabbage
  • 3-4 carrots
  • 1 apple
  • 1 thumb of ginger

Nice and simple!!
