Don’t let the buzz about gut health make you think this is another fad diet. For decades, health practitioners have been preaching about the importance of gut health and recommending gut cleanses to everyone looking to improve their health and overall well-being.

Our gut is the first line of defense against pathogens. It houses our gut microbes, also known as gut bacteria. Poor gut health is not only related to constipation and bloating; it’s also been linked to malnutrition, anxiety, and even mood disorders.

What are the symptoms of an unhealthy gut?

Virtually anyone can benefit from a gut cleanse, not just those with tummy issues. If you’re experiencing any of these issues, you should try to reset your gut health:

  • Bloating
  • Constipation
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Allergies
  • Skin issues
  • Mood swings
  • Joint pain
  • Headaches

Before You Start

The following cleanse is safe for all users. Consult with an accredited health care practitioner first. During this cleanse, some detox symptoms can occur, but if you feel any pain or discomfort, stop and seek medical advice. Once you finish the cleanse, you should keep adding foods to your diet that improve your Gut Health. The same for pre- and pro-biotic supplements, to make sure your gut stays in top shape.

Foods to Stay Away From During the Challenge

  • Grains
  • Dairy
  • Deli meats
  • Processed foods
  • Coffee or soft drinks
  • Fried foods
  • Beans and legumes
  • Potatoes
  • Corn
  • Rice
  • Soy
  • Yeast
  • Refined seed oils
  • Sugars (including artificial sweeteners)
  • Food additives
  • Alcohol

Foods to Eat During the Challenge

  • Fresh fruits and veggies
  • Grass-fed meat and poultry
  • Eggs
  • Seafood
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Nuts
  • Healthy oils
  • Bone broth
  • Fermented foods
  • Herbal teas
