Leaky Gut Natural Remedies

Leaky gut is a syndrome where digestive matter moves through the intestinal wall into the abdominal cavity. This provokes an auto-immune response; it may be totally separate, or connected with food allergies (related to Celiac’s disease) such as allergies to grains, gluten, or dairy products.

Causes of leaky gut can be food intolerances and made worse, or be caused by antibiotics, regular use of NSAIDS (non-prescription pain relievers), and steroid use. It can cause or increase other auto immune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis.

Leaky gut is not recognized by modern medicine and most likely caused or aggravated by anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), steroids and antibiotics. They don’t seem to see a connection with leaky gut syndrome and arthritic, digestive, and auto-immune disorders.

Natural perspective on leaky gut is to eliminate food allergens and to attempt to eliminate all pain relievers (aspirin may be the worst), antibiotics, and steroids. Then you must use several of the following natural therapies for leaky gut to repair the gut. You can always use other natural treatments for auto immune diseases and symptoms. Gut repair can be effective in 2 to 4 weeks.

Diet for Leaky Gut

It is important to eliminate allergic foods for 30 to 40 days to determine their effects.  Obvious dietary concerns are to eliminate tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea, and refined foods.

Nutritional Supplements for Leaky Gut

Antioxidants are needed in general; Grape seed extract at 200 mg a day for tissue integrity, and Evening Primrose oil at 1000 mg a day to promote tissue health.

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.

Bursitis Natural Remedies

Bursitis Natural Remedies

The bursae are pockets of thick fluid sacks that lubricate and protect the tendons and joints. They are damaged from injury or over use. This causes pain and inflammation (bursitis) and there may also be stiffness, tenderness and burning, all worse from motion.

Most medical treatment for bursitis includes NSAIDS (Non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) with all their side effects, toxicity, and slowing of the healing process. If these don’t work, then they may use injections that may only help symptoms.

From the natural perspective we help bursitis by changing a person’s lifestyle if it is from over use, and to help reduce inflammation in the body so the body can repair itself.

Diet – reduce the toxic load to the body so it has the strength to repair. Eliminate alcohol, tobacco, coffee, black tea, fast foods and dairy.

Supplements for bursitis symptoms include fish oil at 6,000 mg a day to reduce inflammation and help cardiovascular health. Bromelain at 2500 GDU 1 tablet or capsule three times a day between meals as a pain and inflammation reducer; MSM at 6,000 mg a day to assist the body in repair.

Herbs for Bursitis

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.

Externally for bursitis use a castor oil pack. Using a cloth soaked in castor oil, cover the inflamed joints or other affected areas and apply a hot pack over it. Do this twice a day for an hour. It may take several days to weeks but relief can be immediate and very effective. Internally the strategy is to use anti-inflammatory, circulatory and pain relieving herbs for bursitis. Use one capsule of each two or three (best) times a day.

Boswellia has been used as a concentrated extract for pain an inflammation.

Turmeric as the raw herb is full of nutrition, and has been used for liver health and anti-inflammatory processes.

Willow bark extract as a concentrated extract for pain and inflammation.

Phlebitis Natural Remedies

Phlebitis can be a superficial inflammation of the veins of mostly the legs but can also be found in the pelvis area. Most people don’t know they have this problem until there is redness or swelling. It can be the result of an infection locally or somewhere else in the body.

Deep vein thrombosis is phlebitis of the deep veins that causes blood clots. This can cause pain, swelling, fevers or chills. Early signs can be a brown staining of the skin on the lower legs. Unchecked the clots can cause a stroke or even death.

Causes of phlebitis can come from smoking, a physical injury, birth control pills or other unknown factors.

Medical treatments are to reduce inflammation in superficial phlebitis with NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). Deep vein thrombosis may be treated with heparin-like drugs, aspirin, or Warfarin. They may be life saving over the short term, but only treats the symptoms and may have toxicity and side effects associated. Diagnosis is important to rule out other problems and avoid blood clots.

Natural perspectives include supporting normal vein health for prevention. We use supplements, cell salts, homeopathics and herbs as well as improve diet. The most important dietary concern for phlebitis is to stop smoking as well as removing alcohol, coffee, black tea. Regular moderate exercise is important for superficial phlebitis. Check with your doctor for deep vein thrombosis.

Supplements valuable to help phlebitis:

Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids (Amla C)

Celiac Disease Natural Remedies

Celiac disease comes with symptoms of chronic gas, bloating, indigestion, later immune deficiency, and finally neurological issues. Celiac is seen intestinally as damaged and flattened villi. The culprit seems to be gluten. The diet for celiac is so strict that as little as ten milligrams of gluten affects most sufferers. Celiac disease can also cause migraines and emotional problems. Treatment for celiac disease comes first through a diet eliminating gluten. Steroids may also be prescribed for celiac patients temporarily (hopefully).

Paul Bergner describes celiac disease best as a food allergy, not just gluten intolerance, where digestion, nerves, and connective tissues are all affected.

One never outgrows a food allergy. Most people have food allergies to dairy, wheat or eggs, and other foods. You must totally stop a food for 40 days and then retest. The intestinal system can rebuild almost completely; I have seen homeopathics restore balance completely through clients’ reports about how they have overcome a wheat allergy by using Carcinosin homeopathic (generally it is their constitutional remedy). But, you must be careful to avoid the offending food.

Celiac is also seen to contribute to leaky gut syndrome and can be treated naturally. Part of celiac problems may be Vitamin D deficiency which is important to the matrix of connective tissue health of the intestines.

Diet for Celiac Disease

In your diet for celiac, It is critical to remove NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) because they cause leaky gut syndrome and destroy the integrity of the mucosal wall in the intestine. Avoid your food intolerance. Improve digestion by eating a more natural diet, avoiding tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea, fast foods, processed foods. Heal the leaky gut by using Vitamin D and herbs such as plantain and calendula to heal the lining of the intestines.

Natural Remedies for Celiac Disease include:

Vitamin D— (5000IU per day) is essential to maintain intestinal integrity.

Acidophilus (50 billion CFUs per day) will help maintain beneficial intestinal flora.

 

Herbs for Celiac Disease

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.

Use a combination of the following herbs for celiac in capsule or powder for maximum benefit, and adjust as your condition improves. Therapeutic dose is equal to one capsule of each herb 3 times a day or 1 liquid dropper full of an herbal tincture 3 times a day.

Chamomile is a mild bitter which helps improve digestion.

Marshmallow root is an herb for celiac to calm mucus membranes of the gastro-intestinal tract.

Aloe vera juice helps celiac by calming and soothing mucus membranes of the gastrointestinal tract.

Licorice root in small quantities acts like a steroid to calm and soothe the mucus membranes without side effects or toxicity.

Plantain or calendula can help seal leaky gut and repair the gastro intestinal system.

Astragalus is an herb for celiac used to improve the immune system.


Cell Salts to Help with Celiac

To make a cell salt solution, put up to 10 tablets of each cell salt in a 16- to 24-ounce bottle; fill with water and swirl to dissolve tablets. Sip throughout the day.

If dairy is an issue, use sucrose pellets.

#2 Calc phos 6X – for intestinal integrity, supports digestion
#3 Calc sulph 6X – consequences of intestinal disturbances from infection
#12 Silicea 6X – connective tissue integrity
