Beauty Chef’s Tips on How To Beautify Your Gut

1. Eat low HI –low human intervention foods.

2. Eat foods rich in prebiotics. Prebiotics help boost the growth of friendly bacteria. These include non-digestible food substances found in asparagus, bananas, endive, chicory, garlic, globe and jerusalem artichokes, kefir, leeks, onions as well as foods rich in soluble fibre.

3. Eat probiotic-rich, lacto-fermented foods such as sauerkraut, kefir and yoghurt.

4. The combination of prebiotics and probiotics helps promote a healthy gut more than either consumed alone.

5. Favour Certified Organic foods –they’re far richer in nutrients and free of nasty chemicals that compromise gut health.

6. If your gut is in bad repair, it may take a while for it to heal and get your own digestive enzymes working efficiently. Digestive enzymes may be helpful for a period of time.

7. Eat smaller meals and chew food slowly so it liquefies before you swallow. Saliva contains digestive enzymes that help break down foods.

8. Avoid drinking with your meal as it dilutes digestive enzymes.

9. Too much acidity in the body encourages unfriendly bacteria. Reduce acidity in the body by eating more alkalising foods including your green leafy veggies and reduce your intake of acid forming foods.

10. Try not to eat when you are angry or stressed as your body’s fight or flight response predominates at those times, meaning digestion is not a priority and is slowed.

11. Grains provide a great source of fibre to aid detoxification but can be hard for some people to digest and contain anti-nutrients. If you consume grains, either soak them or ferment them to make them easier to digest. Doing this helps to neutralise anti-nutrients too. It may be worth avoiding them for a while in the initial stages of healing gut health.

12. Lemon juice helps stimulate digestion. A shot of lemon juice before all meals can be a good aid to digestion.

13. Gluten and dairy sensitivities are quite common, so these kinds of foods are probably best avoided as they contain proteins that are hard to digest. Fermented dairy such as yoghurt is ok.

14. Animal proteins can be hard to digest so are best cooked slowly in soups and stews. Spices such as garlic, ginger, cumin, cayenne and black pepper can be added to animal proteins to aid digestion.

15. Vegetables are best steamed or sautéed as an excess of raw vegetables can weaken digestion.

16. Meat bone broths are high in minerals and other essential nutrients and are excellent for healing the lining of the gut.

17. Other beneficial gut foods include chlorophyll-rich greens such as celery, alfalfa and sea vegetables as well as fibre-rich foods and green tea.

18. Stop bad bacteria in their tracks; avoid refined foods and sugar.

19. Coconut oil is helpful for gut health as it contains lauric acid, which is antibacterial and antifungal.

20. Herbs that may aid digestive health include: fennel, chamomile, slippery elm, ginger, peppermint, lemon verbena, lemon balm, dandelion root, yellow dock, gentian root, slippery elm, licorice root, meadowsweet, oregano, garlic, pau d’arco, ginseng.

NOTE: PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR HEALTH PRACTITIONER BEFORE MAKING ANY CHANGES TO YOUR DIET OR TAKING SUPPLEMENTS OR HERBS, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE PREGNANT OR HAVE A HEALTH CONDITION. DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS AND HERBS MAY HAVE CONTRAINDICATIONS.

Beauty Chef’s 5 Ways to Get Your Gut Flora Back on Track

1. Boost your probiotic intake.The proven strains of good bacteria are the lactobacillus and bifidobacterium species, which help repopulate the gut with good flora. Avoid yoghurts and probiotic products that are loaded with gut-compromising ingredients like refined sugar, which bad bacteria thrive on.

2. Eat lacto-fermented foods.The lacto-fermentation process naturally creates loads of good bacteria that help strengthen and rebuild your gut. This is because lacto-fermented food contains lactobacilli, which research shows help populate the gut with good flora and help with digestion. Sauerkraut, miso, kefir, natto and kimchi are great digestion-boosting foods and can help to heal the gut.

3. Include prebiotics in your diet.Prebiotics feed the probiotics so if you want a thriving, healthy gut you need to nourish the good bacteria with the right stuff. Essentially, prebiotics are the non-digestible food substances that provide lunch (and therefore support) for beneficial bacteria. Asparagus, bananas, garlic, onions, leeks, endive, chicory, shallots, globe and Jerusalem artichokes and sauerkraut are good sources.

4. Take a break from gluten and dairy.If your gut is out of whack, your skin is lacklustre, prone to breakouts, eczema or other skin conditions, your head is foggy and you have bloating after eating bread or dairy, it could be worth eliminating these often gut-compromising culprits from your diet. Both contain proteins that are very hard to digest. Grains can also be problematic until the gut is healed. Soak or ferment your grains to help neutralise the anti-nutrients found in them and make them easier to digest. In fact when your gut is imbalanced, eating easily digested foods that have been soaked, cultured or slow cooked, help to balance the gut; and eating less raw food may be as important as it can be disruptive to a sensitive digestive system. Soups and stews are a great choice for this reason.

5. Drink filtered water.While the water authorities help protect you from bacteria and algae by putting disinfectants such as ammonia and chlorine into the water, these disinfectants aren’t removed, so your body becomes the filter when you consume them. Chlorine helps to eliminate bacteria in water and also impacts the bacteria in your gut —including beneficial bacteria. So use water filters that help remove chlorine, ammonia, heavy metals, particulate matter, giardia and cryptosporidium.
