5 Foods That Will Heal Your Gut In A Hurry

by admin on April 9, 2015

If you have leaky gut, Crohn’s disease, IBS, inflammatory bowel disease or any other gut disorder, your first priority is healing your gut. Due to our modern environment, more people than ever are dealing with severe gut issues. Every other person I talk to seems to bring up a digestive issue at some point during a conversation. Since I have had some pretty severe gut issues in my past, I will share the foods that I benefited the most from while healing my gut.

–Gelatin– Gelatin is a pure protein harvested from beef or pork. What makes it unique is that it is pure connective tissue, often called collagen. I have written about using gelatin to regenerate your skin and joints. Fortunately, gelatin acts to regenerate the gut lining as well. The regeneration of the gut is priority numero uno for those with serious gut issues. This is especially true for leaky gut syndrome.

Glutamine is a common supplement used to regenerate the gut lining. I recommend gelatin over glutamine. Why? Because taking isolated amino acids like glutamine leads to amino acid imbalances. In the case of glutamine, supplementation also leads to excitotoxicity (neuro toxic).

Instead of glutamine, take gelatin, which contains glutamine. Gelatin also contains glycine, which protects your brain cells from the excitotoxic effects of glutamine. Every nutrient works better and is safest in its whole food form.

When you consume gelatin, it coats your intestinal lining and acts as a temporary barrier to allergenic food particles, preventing the inflammatory cascade of damage to your gut. In this way, gelatin is a temporary cure for leaky gut. When taken before every meal, gelatin will eventually allow the gut lining to heal itself in this preventative fashion.

5 Foods That Will Heal Your Gut

Chia Seeds

–Chia Seeds– Chia seeds, when hydrated in water, form a gel coating due to their unusually high content of solube fiber. When consumed, this soluble fiber gel coats and soothes the intestinal lining which curbs allergic inflammatory reactions to problem foods. When hydrated chia seeds are eaten before meals, digestion will immediately improve.

Ground chia seeds are best to eat, soak them in 9 parts water to 1 part chia seed powder. Once the gel forms in about 10 minutes, eat a spoonful before meals and store the rest in the fridge for up to a week.

–Fermented Food– This should be first on the list for anyone who has taken antibiotics. Err, everybody I guess. Probiotics have been studied to change the expression of hundreds of different genes in your body. Many probiotic strains down regulate pro inflammatory genes in your body. This exerts powerful healing effects in the gut and is necessary for the reversal of leaky gut and inflammatory bowel disorders.

Fermented foods also fight off and crowd out the pathogens in your gut which produce toxic byproducts. You feel better when your gut is no longer a toxic factory!

Water kefir, kimchi, sauerkraut and kombucha are a few good fermented foods to try out.

Foods That Will Heal Your Gut–Bromelain– A protein digesting enzyme derived from pineapples, bromelain is a powerful digestive aid. When taken with meals, bromelain breaks down allergenic proteins like gluten or casein before they can cause severe gastric and systemic inflammation.

I typically avoid any gluten or casein, but when I indulge on rare cheat meals containing an allergen, I take a capsule of bromelain before and after the meal. With this strategy my digestion remains largely unaffected by meals that used to make me destroy bathrooms. Everyone with gut issues is suffering from different causes, but if your gut issues were anything like mine, bromelain will help.

–Bovine Colostrum– The queen of all gut healers, colostrum literally was designed by nature to (re)generate a healthy gut lining in mammals. Colostrum contains 86 unique growth factors which rapidly generate healthy intestinal lining.

Simultaneously, proline-rich polypeptides (PRPs) in colostrum shut down the bodies production of harmful allergenic TH2 cytokines while keeping healthy white blood cell production high.

The combination of growth factors and PRPs make bovine colostrum the most valuble food for anyone whose digestion is even slightly ailing. Those with severe gut issues should use colostrum as their base tool for disease reversal.


These are 5 powerful foods that will 1.) protect your gut lining from allergic immune reaction and 2.) regenerate your intestinal lining to prevent leaky gut and the development of food sensitivities. Though they were written in no order, colostrum is the most powerful for gut health followed by gelatin, fermented foods, bromelain and chia seeds.

I’ve had so many people ask where to get these supplements I decided to edit the links in here.

Here is where I purchase each supplement for myself:

Great Lakes Gelatin
RAW 6-Hr Colostrum
Chia Seeds


One of the most prevalent diseases of our modern age, autoimmune disease occurs when your immune system attacks certain tissues of your own body. The results? Degeneration of the tissues in concern as well as a boatload of painful symptoms resultant from the inflammation. Though many have heard of certain popular adaptogenic herbs helping this issue, there are 2 extremely promising herbs that you likely have not heard of yet. These herbs are far more promising than anything I have yet discovered.

In the case of autoimmunity, the body fails to recognize tissues that are or are not itself. This results in the immune cells attacking the healthy cells of ones own body. It is this immune response which must be modulated in order for the body to regain order and heal its damaged tissues. [click to continue…]

I have been writing about healing the gut lately, and though there are certain foods that I recommend to heal the gut, sometimes the bodies immune reaction has gone haywire. In order to heal from this, the immune response must be down-regulated. All the gut healing foods will not help if the body continues to attack the gut.

Though modern humans are dealing with an epidemic of gut autoimmunity such as Crohn’s disease, IBS or any inflammatory bowel syndrome, autoimmune diseases also include arthritis, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis and asthma among many others.

Fortunately, for those trying to down-regulate their various autoimmune responses, regulating specific few types of immune killer cells will relieve all autoimmune disorders.

The main problem immune cells in autoimmune and allergenic disorders involves the TH2/TH1 immune cell imbalance. TH2 always works in balance with TH1 cells in the body. More TH2 means less TH1 and visa versa. An excess of TH1 cells results in autoimmuninty such as Crohn’s disease, arthitis or lupus. Meanwhile, a TH2 overload will result in allergies, asthma and increased infections from low TH1 count.

So what is the goal? Keep TH1 and TH2 killer cells in balance and you will have a healthy immune system.

Herbs That Balance Autoimmune Response Via TH1/TH2 Modulation (Herbs With Silly Names)

1. Kalawalla (polypodium leucotomos)- A fern native to South America, Kalawalla has been studied by Harvard among other medical schools for its promising results in balancing TH1 and TH2 immune cells and alleviating autoimmune diseases as a result.



Multiple studies show that after 2-5 months of supplementation, the majority of subjects suffering from various autoimmune diseases noted a ~40-95% reversal of their autoimmune symptoms with average dosages of 120-300 mg of kalawalla extract per day.

The most promising studies used kalawalla against the autoimmune diseases multiple sclerosis and lupus. It has also proved to be effective against Crohn’s disease, vitiligo, eczema and psoriasis among others.

Kalawalla has also been shown in studies to be potently anti-carcinogenic and a particularly effective anti-aging agent in skin and brain cells.

2. Hydrangea root- Though you may know Hydrangea as a beautiful addition to your flower garden, this herb has prominently been used for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine as an effective remedy for autoimmune disease.

2 Unknown Herbs That Reverse Autoimmune Disease

Hydrangea Flower

Earlier we talked about balancing TH1 and TH2 killer cells to alleviate autoimmune dysfunction. Though these cells play a major role in autoimmmunity, TH17 cells also play a major role in inflammatory autoimmunity. 

New autoimmune drugs are being created from a natural compound in Hydrangea called halofuginone. Halofuginone (HF) has been widely studied to effectively block the development of the harmful autoimmune TH17 immune cells without hindering the bodies overall immune strength.

As quoted from the Harvard medical news site, “Th17 cells are “bad actors,” implicated in many autoimmune diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and psoriasis. The researchers found that minute doses of HF reduced multiple sclerosis in a mouse model.”

What is exciting is that in both kalawalla and hydrangea, only small dosages are needed to provide the researched benefits of reversing autoimmunity.


Most people have never heard of either one of these herbs but research is now showing us that each herb effects unique immune pathways that dramatically dampen the harmful autoimmune pathways in the mammalian body, without lowering overall immune strength. Animal and human studies support this under a wide variety of autoimmune dysfunctions.

In my research, these are the 2 most powerful auto immune shields available to us today, seeing as they individually target two separate, and most problematic autoimmune white blood cells, it is my recommendation that using the combination of these two herbal compounds is the highest hope for those wishing to reverse the symptoms of inflammatory autoimmunity.

If you suffer from autoimmune disease, stack both of these herbs into your supplement regimen. Try them for 6 months and see they don’t relieve a significant burden of your inflammatory symptoms.

Where To Find These Herbs

For those looking to use these herbs, I couldn’t find encapsulated hydrangea root of high enough quality (dosages way too low) so your best bet is to purchase a pound of bulk dried hydrangea root and make a tea from it for daily consumption. 1-2 tablespoons of dried herb per day as a tea is the recommended dosage. You can make a weeks worth of tea by adding 8 tablespoons of hydrangea root into a full tea kettle of pot of water. Bring this to a boil and then let it simmer for 20 minutes. Once it cools, strain the tea and store it in your fridge, consuming 1/7th of it every day of the week.  Sweeten the tea with honey of stevia.

I did find, on Amazon, a high potency kalawalla extract in capsules however, you can find these capsules here
