Restore gut health with the Super 7(R) Action Plan. Restoring gut health is a crucial step toward improving immunity, reducing systematic inflammation, and reducing the risk of autoimmune disease. Talk to Humfeld Chiropractic and Nutrition Center in Minnesota to learn more.
Step 1: Reset
Stop eating the Standard American Diet.
Eat a plant-forward anti-inflammatory diet, such as the Mediterranean Diet.
Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
The cornerstone of the diet is being low in processed carbohydrates.
Step 2: Remove
Remove food sensitivities.
If nutrition testing shows you are sensitive to a food, remove it from your diet now but not necessarily forever.
Remove processed foods, sugar, dairy, and gluten.
No GPS (no gluten, processed foods, and sugar)
No DNA (no dairy, nicotine, and artificial sweeteners)
Remove unwanted pathogens and liver toxins.
A liver detoxification program can help get rid of accumulated toxins and reduce the symptoms of toxic build up.
Step 3: Replace
Replacing and augmenting vital digestive chemistry allows you to improve digestion and absorption.
Shortages of bile, stomach acid, and pancreatic enzyme can throw the microbiome out of balance.
Replenishing these supplies can make a big difference.
Step 4: Regenerate
There are nutrients available to help regenerate and repair including:
L-glutamine for regenerating the mucosa
Omega-3 fatty acids for calming inflammation and rebuilding the epithelial cell wall.
A collagen supplement for supporting your digestive tract as it heals
Ginger for stimulating the production of stomach acid, bile, and pancreatic enzyme.
Step 5: Re-Inoculate
Your microbiome is healthy when your gut bacteria is 80-85% beneficial species and 15-20% unfavorable species.
We can use high-quality probiotics and prebiotics to help restore the beneficial bacteria and get rid of the unfriendly ones.
Step 6: Reintroduce and Retest
Once symptoms improve, foods can be added back into your diet.
Continue to avoid processed food and continue to avoid GPS and DNA.
Retest for food sensitivities.
Step 7: Retain the Gains
Continue sticking to this healthy diet, take appropriate supplements, exercise, get enough sleep, and reduce stress.
These are critical to retaining the improvements.
Long-term glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate intake may counteract symptomatic spinal disc degeneration.
