What’s the Perfect Diet for Everyone?
For starters, I don’t mean that everyone should stop eating all animal protein. Some patients do incredibly well on carnivore diets because their test results, medical history and genetics supports a carnivore diet.
Other patients do great on vegan diets, the complete opposite, because their test results, medical history and genetics supports a vegan diet.
In healthcare I fully believe there is no, “one size fits all” approach, which is why we customize all of our patient’s programs.
In fact, over the last 25 years we’ve never had two patients on the exact same holistic nutritional program, it just doesn’t happen.
What Do I mean by Protein Poisoning?
Again, I don’t mean to stop eating animal protein. I do mean that a certain group of people have certain gastrointestinal imbalances that make them poor animal protein digesters.
As a result, the protein rots in their gut producing inflammatory chemicals such as, indoles and ammonia.
These protein toxins can contribute to leaky gut as well as, can create certain symptoms.
Symptoms of Protein Maldigestion (poisoning)
- Foamy urine (looks like lots of small or large bubbles)
- Brain fog
- Memory issues
- Joint pain
- Bad breath
- Stomach pain
- Elevated liver enzymes
Testing for Protein Maldigestion (poisoning)
The most cost effective and easiest means is through a urine test called urinary indican.
Urinary indican measures the amount of indoles in the urine. Indoles are produced in the gut when protein rots and are released into the blood stream where they are carried out through the urine.
This is a great tests to see if this problem is present but doesn’t exactly tell you why.
If you want to identify the Root Cause then the following labs can be very beneficial.
- H. Pylori breath or stool antigen study
- PCR DNA probe stool analysis
- SIBO breath test
- Nano Scan hair test
In the video I go more in depth as to what these tests look at.
Take the Gut Health Test
If you’d like to identify the root cause and need some help getting started then take my Gut Health Test. This test asks a lot of the right questions that point us in the direction of your Root Cause.
