9-simple-gut-healing-recipes

When you eat, you have many choices. Do you opt for flavor? Do you opt for convenience? Or do you take a ‘food as medicine’ approach?

The third choice is definitely the wisest. However, sometimes it can be difficult to find flavorful and convenient recipes that also help you heal… especially when many of us are following dietary guidelines, like the Leaky Gut diet, or the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD).

What Foods Fit Within a Leaky Gut Diet?

There are many Leaky Gut Diet-friendly foods that can satisfy your cravings, without leaving you feeling deprived. You can dine on vegetables, fruits, coconut products, grass-fed meats, seafood, poultry, bone broth, healthy fats, herbs, and many more choices.

While a wide variety of foods are permitted, there are some limitations on a Leaky Gut diet. You’ll want to avoid nuts, seeds, beans/legumes, grains, dried fruits, dairy, processed foods, alcohol, chocolate, eggs, and nightshades, at least until you know how you react to them. Keep in mind this is not an all-encompassing list. To learn more about what to eat and not eat on a Leaky Gut diet, check out this free webinar on Solving Leaky Gut. [click to continue…]

Montse-SLG-Success-Story-Pic

Jumping from diet to diet in hopes of finding the magic one is probably something each of us has experienced at one time or another.

Truth is, there isn’t one magic diet out there, as much as I wanted that to be true myself.

As a lifetime sufferer of digestive issues, our friend, and Solving Leaky Gut Community Member, Montse, tried everything from vegan to a raw diet.

In her search for something better, she found the Solving Leaky Gut Program and hoped it would lead her on a path she could trust in.

And it did.

In just 9 days, the gas, cramps, and bloating disappeared and she was finally able to begin stabilizing her weight.

Montse’s story is such an inspiration and is a great example of what’s possible when we’re willing to adapt and find just what it is our bodies need. [click to continue…]

Have you ever heard of the term “symptom chasing”??

It refers to the act of trying to resolve several health issues independently, believing one symptom is unrelated to the other. It’s a very frustrating place to be, but fortunately more and more people are becoming aware and realize this behavior isn’t working.

Looking back, I was doing this very thing as I tried to find separate solutions to my grueling fatigue, severe diarrhea, and unwelcomed weight loss. But as soon as I focused on taking control of my digestive issues, everything started to fall into place and I felt alive again.

Truth is, the research shows our gut plays a role in nearly every condition known to man and we must start there if we want to achieve better health.

And this is exactly how my friend Debbie regained her health, despite suffering from over 15 symptoms every single day.

Debbie’s story is a perfect example of what can happen when we turn our attention to gut health. Not only did she lose the weight she so desperately tried to lose, but she recovered from eczema, endometriosis, thyroid issues, pancreatitis, GERD, and depression to name a few.

Debbie is an inspiration to me and I hope that if you’re sick and tired of chasing symptoms, her story inspires you to take a different approach. [click to continue…]

Teresa-SLG-Success-Story-Image

We get a lot of questions every day about our Solving Leaky Gut Program. But one that always stands out to me is “Steve and Jordan, I don’t have Crohn’s or Celiac or Ulcerative colitis… but I just always feel terrible, can your Solving Leaky Gut Program help me too?”

This question breaks my heart.

Here’s why: essentially what people are asking is “Am I sick enough? Is taking responsibility for my health worth the time, money, and energy it’s going to take?””

But rather than tell you about what I think, let me answer everyone by introducing you to Teresa.

Teresa is a wife, mom, and elementary school teacher. For years, she suffered with the frustrating symptoms of IBS – bloating, gas, and alternating constipation and diarrhea – as well as hormonal issues, her entire adulthood.

But then, last year, Teresa took a stand against feeling bloated and gassy every time she ate, running for the bathroom, unwanted weight gain, and hormonal issues by joining Solving Leaky Gut.

And six months after starting our Solving Leaky Gut program, her IBS symptoms are a thing of the past. Her hormones are improving AND she’s lost weight effortlessly.

To everyone who thinks they aren’t “sick enough” to be ready for a program like Solving Leaky Gut – you don’t have to settle for a life of suffering. You deserve to feel great, like Teresa does now. [click to continue…]

Family at table

“I’m hungry” may be the most well-known words to any mom or caregiver on the planet. I used to strongly dislike those words. And I do mean strongly.

Chaos, madness, stress, frustration, guilt…

Sound familiar, when trying to cook healthy meals for your whole family?

Before I finally figured out a better way, these words and emotions stuck with me, day in and day out.

And one particular moment sticks out in my mind (of which you might be able to relate to). [click to continue…]
