Leaky gut perpetuates the toxic effects of what we ingest when substances “leak” into the bloodstream. Without healing the gut, detoxing is at best a temporary fix.
What Is Leaky Gut?
Leaky gut can contribute to food allergies, joint pain, thyroid disease, autoimmune disease, and other health problems. It occurs when unwanted particles seep through the intestinal lining. In this instance, these particles enter the bloodstream, resulting in an allergic reaction.
Common leaky gut symptoms include:
- Digestive issues
- Weight gain
Leaky gut also has been linked to various long-term health problems, such as:
- Inflammatory bowel disease
- Chronic fatigue
Leaky gut may impact how the body absorbs minerals and nutrients, too. If the body cannot absorb key minerals and nutrients properly, an individual may suffer the consequences of leaky gut for an extended period of time.
How Can a Detox Treat Leaky Gut?
There is no one-size-fits-all solution to treat all leaky gut symptoms, at all times. However, a person may use a detox to temporarily cleanse the body of toxins, i.e. substances that can have negative effects on an individual’s health. As a result, a detox may help a person address the toxins and remediate his or her leaky gut symptoms.
A detox allows a person to address various toxins in the body, including:
- Artificial food ingredients
In many cases, a detox involves a series of immediate and long-lasting lifestyle changes designed to help a person optimize the performance of body systems.
The excretory system, which consists of the skin, liver, lungs, large intestine, and kidneys, plays a key role in a detox.
As part of a detox, an individual may need to modify his or her diet, perform exercises and meditation, and purify the body with water.
In addition, an individual will need to avoid GMO products and herbicide- and pesticide-contaminated foods to alleviate the risk of exposure to food-based toxins.
How Can Colostrum-LD® Help During a Detox?
Bovine colostrum contains immunoglobulins, lactoferrin, proline-rich polypeptides (PRPs), and other powerful and all-natural components. It is also an all-natural supplement available to those who are planning a detox.
Colostrum-LD® can be incorporated into a three-day fast – a so called “reset” for the immune system. The Colostrum-LD® fast includes taking one tablespoon of powdered Colostrum-LD® every four hours. Plenty of water should be consumed to prevent dehydration and help flush toxins and pathogens from the body during the fast. Bovine colostrum will help balance blood sugar levels and reduce the feelings of hunger. This is only recommended for people who can tolerate a 72-hour water fast. If you have any medical conditions, check with your doctor before beginning any type of fast or detox program.
The Bottom Line on Colostrum-LD®
