'The road to health is paved with good intestines!'
― Sherry A. Rogers

In case you didn't know, your gut is home to trillions of microorganisms known as the microbiome. Unless you live off the grid, eat organic food, and have zero stress, the large families of bacteria, essential for the health of the human gut, are under threat. 

A three-day cleansing diet will reset your intestinal microbiome to optimum performance. Regular detoxing will maintain intestinal balance going forward. 

Your Gut - Your Second Brain

Just like your brain, the ENS (Enteric Nervous System) has the same type of neurons and neurotransmitters found in your brain’s CNS (Central Nervous System.) As part of your digestive system, the ENS is lined with more than 100 million nerve cells from the esophagus to your rectum, and has been called our ‘second brain’. The connection between the brain and gut impacts digestion, mood, and perception. 

Symptoms that You Might Need to Reset Your Gut

When your gut is out of sync, you’ll feel it. Here are some common symptoms that alert you to the need for resetting your gut:

  • Gas
  • Fatigue
  • Candida
  • Bloating
  • Leaky gut
  • Heartburn
  • Constipation 
  • Inflammatory bowel disease 

Research has shown that short-term dietary changes, such as a sudden change to a plant-based diet, do beneficially alter gut flora. Based on these findings, a three-day dietary gut reset may positively impact the microbiome. It’s a great kickstart at the very least. In order to achieve lasting results, however, it may be necessary to make long-term changes to diet and lifestyle.

Hot Tip: the Mediterranean way of eating increases the amount and diversity of beneficial bacteria in the gut, whereas other diets reduce it.

  • sugars, i.e. refined sugar, corn syrup, or any ingredients ending in ‘-ose’ (e.g. fructose)
  • refined carbohydrates (cakes, breads, pasta, pizza, pastries)
  • Saturated fats - found in all processes foods

Instead, be sure to load your meals with plant-based foods on day one, such as

  • nuts and seeds
  • olives and olive oil

  • dark leafy greens (spinach or kale)

  • brightly colored vegetables (carrots, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant)

Allopathic Medicine or Natural Supplements

Many gut issues are often treated allopathically with medical immunosuppressants, anti-inflammatories, and cortisone, which may indeed be necessary when symptoms become intense or progressive disease is already present. It is important to fully understand the side effects of these medications before deciding to proceed with treatment. Try to rely on these measures only after exhausting all other options first.
