Leaky Gut Syndrome:
“Leaky gut” is a condition (much more common than you think) where the intestinal lining of your stomach becomes permeable through tearing, holes, and wearing away of lining in general. This allows undigested food particles, pathogens (such as candida, parasites, bacteria, viruses), chemicals, and everything else you eat, breathe and drink to enter your blood stream. Leaky gut can cause: allergies, food sensitivities, fatigue, headaches, skin conditions, autoimmune diseases, anxiety/depression, Alzheimer’s, and cancer.
From Dr. Jake Fratkin (drjakefratkin.com):
“It is often the primary cause of the following common conditions: asthma, food allergies, chronic sinusitis, eczema, urticaria, migraine, irritable bowel, fungal disorders, fibromyalgia, and inflammatory joint disorders including rheumatoid arthritis. It also contributes to PMS, uterine fibroid, and breast fibroid. Leaky Gut Syndrome is often the real basis for chronic fatigue syndrome and pediatric immune deficiencies.” – Leaky Gut: A Modern Epidemic
So What Causes It?
In the old days, the ONLY way that bowel toxins entered the blood stream was through trauma (sword fighting for example!) This would cause septicemia that is treatable but used to lead to death. We don’t have many swords being yielded around in our daily lives now, so what’s doing it? I’ll give you three main culprits: GMOs, Antibiotics (our overuse in modern medicine AND the antibiotics given to animals), and non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) – think Motrin & Advil!
Dr. Fratkin knows that doctors overprescribe antibiotics for so many ailments (ear infections, etc.) that are often VIRAL and not bacterial whatsoever. Antibiotics are SERIOUS drugs. Antibiotics kill good bacteria that is supposed to break down toxic liver bile and estrogens, digest food, and more. Antibiotics promote fungal and candida growth that can damage our lining. Candida allows the absorption of serious toxic agents and chemicals, which then enter the blood and affect numerous organs, including the brain. We ingest antibiotics every time we eat a non-organic/grassfed animal thanks to factory farming.
Please read more about the effects of antibiotics & NSAIDs from Dr. Fratkin here.
GMOs, which are filled with viral DNA, herbicides, pesticides, and fungicides are CHANGING our DNA (google “epigenetics”.) Everything from leaky gut, infertility and sterility to actual autoimmune diseases (chronic fatigue, fybromylagia) and cancer are increasing just as GMOs are increasing in our food supply. Similar effects were found on mice and rats.
How Can Bone Broth Soul Help?
Bone broth heals leaky gut. This stuff LEGIT repairs your intestines thanks to glutamine. It restores your healthy mucosal lining thanks to collagen, gelatin, glycine, and proline. It boosts your immune system and fights infections of any kind: cold, flu, etc. Bone broth also has glucosamine, which many people take in pill form for joint pain. This broth naturally reduces joint pain & inflammation all while REPAIRING you with NEW joint collagen! It also supports nail/hair growth, and prevents cellulite/wrinkles since they all deal with collagen. It’s super easy to make (bones + veg + sitting on the stove). The broth contains all minerals and nutrients found in bones, meaning ALL THE NUTRIENTS OUR BONES NEED! It’s like taking a multivitamin supplement for bone health.
– Find some CERTIFIED GRASS-FED bones. You can order them from www.uswellnessmeats.com OR you can call local butchers and ask if they have any grass-fed bones. This time I ordered goat bones from www.uddermilk.com since they were 8 bucks for two whole pounds.
– Add your bones and filtered water into a slow cooker on low (preferred) or large pot on low heat.
– Add 3 shots of Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar for acidity to extract all nutrients from the bones.
– Cook the bones for at LEAST 24 hours. The longer the better. This is marrow we are breaking down here.
– After 24 hours add ANY veggies and spices you love. We added cilantro, chives, onions, peppers, squash, sweet potato, carrots, celery, organic adobo, pepper, mushrooms, and more.
– Cook for another 12 hours with the veggies inside.
I make this twice a week now and bottle all my my broth and refrigerate it. Every morning when I wake up I drink a huge bowl of it. Some people drink it in a mug every morning. Whatever you do, do not let this inexpensive and healing gem get away. Try it out!
