Five Foods That Work Miracles on Digestive Problems.

post

Whether you have been diagnosed with a digestive disease or not, chances are you are suffering from some type of intestinal distress. We have wandered a long ways away from clean, unprocessed, and live foods. The resulting deficiency has left our guts raw and inflamed – a precursor to all sorts of diseases (many of them autoimmune).

In order to clean up the gut, we need some powerful foods to start repairing the damage, while we transition to a more gut friendly whole foods diet. These are five foods that work miracles on digestive problems.

Aloe vera

Aloe vera is a special plant known as the “lily of the desert”. Although it has been historically used topically to treat open wounds, ulcers, burns, and infections, in recent years it has become popular due to the fact it can also treat these types of conditions internally.

Due to its very high enzymatic content; its antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties; and the fact that it is a powerful anti-inflammatory, aloe vera is a boon to anyone suffering from digestive complaints. It has been used successfully to treat a wide variety of conditions related to the gut, including:

• Ulcers, IBS, Crohn’s disease, colitis, and other digestive disorders
• Candida infections
• Parasitic infections
• Acid reflux
• Constipation

Be careful when choosing aloe vera as some brands may contain preservatives like sodium benzoate, which are very harmful to the intestinal lining.

Bone broth

Bone broth is an excellent option for healing and sealing the gut, provided it is made from the carcasses of animals fed clean and nutritious diets. It is also easily digestible and contains many valuable nutrients to heal the gut.

One of these nutrients is gelatin, which protects and heals the mucosal lining of the digestive tract and also assists in the digestion of nutrients. It also contains high levels of the amino acids glycine and proline, which are very anti-inflammatory.

Coconut kefir

Coconut kefir (fermented coconut water), is a probiotic and enzyme rich beverage that promotes healthy bacterial balance and helps cleanse the liver.

Coconut kefir will enhance hydration and recolonize your gut and mucous membranes with a wide variety of beneficial microflora. It also contains beneficial yeasts that seek out and destroy pathogenic yeasts in the body (like Candida) as well as helping clean, strengthen, and purify intestinal walls so it can become more resistant to dangerous pathogens like E. coli, salmonella, and parasites.

Coconut kefir also helps assimilate nutrients in the gut and enhances the usage of certain trace minerals and B-vitamins. For a simple recipe, check out the first source.

Flax seed tea

Flax seed tea is excellent for healing the colon, especially if you suffer from leaky gut syndrome or irritable bowel. It is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, soluble fiber, and lignans, which create an anti-inflammatory and lubricating effect that are critical to regaining proper digestive health.

This tea eliminates the problems associated with eating whole flax seeds (which do not digest properly), and is a bit easier to digest than flax meal. To make, simply poor 12 ounces of boiling water over a tablespoon of flaxseeds and let steep overnight. Drain and drink the liquid.

Red cabbage

Glutamine is a critical part of our digestive system and helps prevent and rebuild a leaky gut. Glutamine has been shown to be effective in people with ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, and irritable bowel syndrome.

Red cabbage is considered the most dense vegetable form of L-glutamine. A great way to assimilate it is through juicing or fermenting. Try fermenting it and adding apple cider vinegar to it to create an abundance of enzymes and beneficial bacteria that allow amino acids and other nutrients to be more easily absorbed and used by the body.

About the Author

Amanda-Mary
With almost twenty years spent researching and treating Cancer, I am a well respected author, teacher and health coach.

I do have a list of qualifications, but I find them cumbersome and false. The fact I am a qualified Holistic Doctor is neither here, nor there. Medical education is entirely corrupt and something that can be used against you. I go on courses in order to learn, not to buy a badge to hide behind, or a stick to beat people with.

So much nonsense has been written about me that I never read, or choose to absorb. It’s all about them, never about me. I have been attacked and targeted simply because I have helped people and not been silenced. A common misconception is that I am holistic, but the truth is I do not sit on either side of the imaginary divide between what is “mainstream” and what is “holistic.” There is greed and corruption on both sides and examples of bad practice in every field.
Personally, I am only interested in what works and improves the life of the patient.

In some cases, radiation can work and so am happy to recommend that route, if it works and saves a life in an emergency situation. But there is no ‘one size fits all’ and no cookie cutter protocol. There are many variables in healing the body. We are all individual and all capable of change, so each case must be considered individually. What works for one, may not work for another. Mass medication is wrong.
My research and work has led me all over the world and got me into some tight spots at times, but I am thankful for every twist and turn and have learned a lot from each. I am wiser as a result and see that life teaches us all. I recovered from breast cancer 20 years ago, which has saved my life over and over and made me very aware of how fleeting and precious life is. I live each day to the full and as if it were my last.
I have twenty children, many of whom are adopted, four are mine naturally. I love and adore them all and am honored to have been able to raise them, for now they are strong and independent adults. My children are the most important people in my life.

I despise materialism, I have old fashioned views and feel the modern world has lost much in the way of values and common decency. So I travel the world with my partner and 6-year-old daughter, helping people and sharing knowledge. I am still learning and feel that everyday is a school day. The reason I started this blog was so I could pass on some of this knowledge to others.

I speak the truth about everything and my honest approach shocks many, as I tend to say the things most people would not. I focus on solutions, as I am a problem solver at heart and there is only one truth. Stick to the truth and you will never go far wrong.

I hope you enjoy our blog site and the articles we labor over for your benefit. Please donate to the cause on the page above, as we do not receive a penny in advertising, or sponsorship. It is all from the heart.

Love and light.
