Is Your Gut Making You Sick?

So How Can You Tell If the Gut Is at The Core of Their Symptoms?

Do you have any of the following symptoms?

The Table of Symptoms can all be signs that the gastrointestinal tract may not be functioning optimally and a gastrointestinal tract out of balance can be the core imbalance causing their symptoms and lack of wellness.


The goal is to get rid of things that negatively affect the environment of the gastrointestinal tract such as inflammatory foods, infections and gastric irritants like alcohol, caffeine or drugs. Infections can be from parasites, yeast or bacteria. A comprehensive stool analysis is key to determining the levels of good bacteria as well as any infections that may be present.

Removing the infections may require treatment with UNA3 or removing parasites may require treatment with anti-parasite programs.


Providing the nutrients necessary to help the gut repair it is essential. The amino acid L-glutamine helps to rejuvenate the gut wall lining. Foods rich in L-glutamine include spinach, cabbage, and parsley, especially in their raw forms.  Additionally, oats and wheat germ are also vegetarian-friendly sources of L-glutamine. Eggs, goat or sheep yogurt, goat cottage cheese or goat ricotta cheese are also rich in L‐glutamine.  Please check with your DBM Physician if eggs and goat/sheep dairy is permitted on your program.

Coconut oil is another superfood no one should be without. The healthy saturated fats are an integral part to healing your gut.  Lauric, capric and caprylic acids in coconut oil have antimicrobial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties. Coconut oil should be organic, extra virgin and cold pressed.

Other key nutrients necessary for gut repair include zinc,  omega-3, vitamin A,  vitamin C, and vitamin E.

Restoring beneficial bacteria to re-establish a healthy balance of good bacteria is critical. This may be accomplished by taking a natural probiotic such as sauerkraut, goat or sheep yogurt, grated browned apple, goat kefir, coconut kefir or kombucha. Add to that some prebiotic foods, those non-digestible short-chain fatty acids that help good bacteria flourish. To ensure sufficient prebiotics, foods such as artichokes, garlic, beans, oats, onions and asparagus. A probiotic supplement that contains the beneficial bacteria bifidobacteria and lactobacillus species such as GNLD Acidophilus can also be taken. We recommend anywhere from 25 -100 billion units a day.  This supplemental form of acidophilus is available from DBM in a special formulation. Consuming foods high in soluble fibre is also important.

Sources of soluble fibre include all those foods listed on the table: Soluble Fibre


When the bowel is stagnant and not eliminating sufficiently, it can harbour an amazing variety of very harmful bacteria and parasites. Constipation contributes toward the lowering of body resistance, predisposing it to many acute illnesses and the creation of many degenerative and chronic processes.  Intestinal constipation causes cellular constipation and increases the workload of other excretory organs – kidney, skin, liver, lungs and lymph – which upon overworking has lowered ability to eliminate waste materials. A decline in tissue and organ functionality results.

Never before has man been in more toxic, poisonous environments. From the air, water, food, soil, clothing, things we touch, all find their way into the body. The need to detoxify and cleanse the body has never been greater than right now.
