5R Program for Gut RestorationFrom irritable bowel to foggy head, your gut plays a major role in your health and it takes multiple steps to heal a dysfunctional belly. A properly-functioning digestive system is a key part of good health. Any problems with the gastrointestinal (GI) tract can not only lead to stomachaches, gas and bloating, or diarrhea, but can also indicate chronic health problems that may seem unrelated, including autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and type 1 diabetes. Skin problems, such as eczema and rosacea, as well as heart disease, are also connected to the health of the GI tract.

Remove any food allergens, bacteria, yeast or parasites that aren’t doing your body good.

Re-inoculate your belly with neighbors you want. Five pounds of friendly bacteria and yeast, called your microbiota, communicate with your brain.

Replace any missing components of digestive function like hormones, enzymes, vitamins and minerals. Hydrochloric acid often gets a bad rap and is accused of such misdeeds as reflux and heartburn when it is more commonly not being produced in an amount that is needed to properly digest food. Replacing bad habits and behaviors with healthy ones would fit here too.

Repair the complex lining of the gut that protects your pristine inside world from the harsh and toxic outside world.

Restore the computer-like connection between the gut and the brain for better memory, focus, alertness and peace of mind.

This program can lead to dramatic improvements in symptoms, even sometimes clearing them up altogether.
