2300 years ago, the father of modern medicine, Hippocrates, said, “All diseases begin in the gut.” That’s a nice saying and all, but what does it mean? Does it just mean we need to get our gut healthy because we trust him? No, it means if we can’t digest our food what do we have? If we can’t break down our proteins and emulsify our fats, in other words DIGEST our food, what do we have? We have nothing but disease and a miserable quality of life…as we slowly starve to death.
The supplements we recommend below, during the GAPS diet, are mostly to ENABLE you to digest your food – they don’t necessarily feed you. After you do the GAPS program for about – get this – only a couple of months, you should be feeling so much better that you can drop off many of these supplements and you can go on a maintenance supplemental program of whole food nutrition which you cannot easily get in your daily diet. (How many of you eat organ meat? Omega 3’s, fats, iodine, whole food organic food – every day, or even at all?)
The protocol below is what we have recommended for hundreds of patients, and importantly, ourselves – both myself as well as Dr. Jack. This works. Going to the foundational problem fixes everything. Because nobody in the world knows what’s going on inside of you. No doctor, not me, not even you. But your BODY knows. Your body knows every little artery it wants to fix, every neuron it needs to repair. So if we go foundationally – to the gut, as Hippocrates said, which enables you to digest and absorb your food, your body will take care of you, and it will do what it has always done – REPAIR AND RESTORE.
Hippocrates, 2300 years later, is now being validated with the latest medical research showing, that almost all gastrointestinal diseases and central nervous system disorders, can be related to the health or sickness of the gut. Listen to podcasts #4, #42, and #43 for a deeper, more foundational understanding, as to how the health of your gut relates to the overall health of the whole body. True healthcare has come full circle since the days of Hippocrates. From the gut in his day, to magic and the occult, to leeches and bleedings, to bug resistant antibiotics, back again to the gut.
