by Dr. Nick Zyrowski June 11, 2024

Do you feel like a walking commercial for stomach ailments? You know the ones where people are dancing and singing about all their various stomach troubles. If you’ve experienced IBS in any form, you know there’s nothing fun about it. We’ve recently given you some information on the symptoms of IBS, and if you’ve read it and decided that may be your issue, this article is for you. You won’t find attempts at humorous anecdotes here, but you will get genuine answers and real solutions on how to heal your gut and reverse IBS naturally.

Reverse your IBS

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a chronic gut disorder that causes abdominal discomfort and changes in your bowel habits. Symptoms include:

  • Cramping
  • Bloating
  • Abdominal pain
  • Gas
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Backaches

Some people are told that since their parents suffered from different stomach ailments, they will, too. Unfortunately, many of us have believed this and didn’t make any changes because we figured it was a way of life. The truth is that you can reverse your IBS issues and heal your gut with natural methods. Below, we’ll give you the actionable steps you can begin practicing today to start easing your symptoms and become healthier.

Remove the Bad Stuff

The first step to healing your gut is removing all the bad bacteria, toxins, pesticides, GMOs, and other unhealthy things that are making you sick. When you think about getting your car’s oil changed, you don’t just get new oil poured into the dirty sludge that is already there. First, you empty the old stuff to get out any impurities and chemicals that could interfere with your car running well.

That means not only changing your gut health now but also changing your cleaning products and beauty accessories. (1) Many household items you may have in your home are loaded with dangerous toxins that can take a toll on your health. These include bleach, air fresheners, oven cleaners, makeup, and more.

Replace Unhealthy

Habits Once you begin to remove those bad products, you want to replace them with healthy ones. The food you eat makes a huge impact on your gut microbiome. Now is the time to start some good habits and eat healthy foods that nourish your gut. Certain foods are nutrient-dense and contain healthy bacteria. You want to incorporate some fermented foods like sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha, plain yogurt, and miso. (2)

There are also other foods you can add, like bone broth, coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, and ghee. You can make bone broth at home and save some money, or buy it at your local grocery store. Apple cider vinegar helps keep your stomach pH at the appropriate levels to stop bacterial overgrowth. Ghee contains fat-soluble vitamins and fat which is good for your gut lining and contains the nutrients you may be missing. Coconut oil is also great for rebuilding your gut lining. (3)

Don’t forget to eat your other whole foods during this time. Many items that claim to be healthy contain numerous ingredients that aren’t good for your gut, so you must give your body those rich sources of vitamins and minerals that whole foods contain.

Repair and Reintroduce

Now that you’ve stopped using unhealthy products and are eating healthy foods, you want to repair the gut lining and get your inflammation down so you can heal. During this time, supplementation can be an incredible source to help finish the job.

If your gut is severely inflamed and broken down, you need clinical doses of specific nutrients and herbs to get the results you need. It also speeds up the healing process, which you want if you’ve been sick and not feeling your best.

Your body may lack enzymes to break down your food and if you don’t repair the gut lining, you could have the same stomach ailments for years to come. A quality product, like the Gut Healing Package, contains the proper doses of the supplements you need to clear your gut and repair it. It includes four specific supplements designed to work together to clear the gut of unwanted pathogens (GI Clear), repair the gut lining (GI Repair), assist with digestion (Complete Enzyme), and reinoculate your gut with healthy bacteria (Probiotic Strength).

Reintroducing quality probiotics to get the good bacteria into your gut is essential for any IBS issues. (4) The digestive enzymes in our Gut Healing Package will help your body break down healthy foods into amino acids, fatty acids, simple sugars, and cholesterol. GI-Repair has the nutrients necessary to heal the gut lining so that you don’t continue to suffer from poor gut health.

More Gut Issues

IBS is only one of the major problems plaguing many of our patients today. When it comes to these kinds of issues, we know people are experiencing things like SIBO, GERD, Dysbiosis, and even Crohn’s. Many of these illnesses can be fixed with the changes we have mentioned. Often, some small tweaks can make the most impact.

Most digestive issues begin with inflammation of your gastrointestinal lining and are often caused by a bacterial imbalance. (5) When you target these two, you’ll likely notice a big difference in your energy levels and feel better than you have in a long time.

Strategies that Work

You may have noticed we didn’t mention prescription medications to fix these gut problems. We believe that real health comes naturally, and if you have gut issues, you simply cannot medicate your way out of them. It takes some effort, but these issues are typically solved by alternating your diet, adding specific, clinically-relevant doses of supplements, and removing toxic products that can be affecting your health in negative ways.

We see many patients in our clinic with all kinds of gut issues and know how to treat them effectively to get you on the track to being healthy again. If you are experiencing any of these problems, contact us to learn how we can help. Don’t give up hope because we know that many gut problems can be reversed with the proper care.
