Are you struggling with food sensitivities or allergies? Perhaps you’ve taken out the foods you suspect you were reacting too and still you have symptoms. It’s possible your gut dysbiosis, has you lacking certain bacteria that break down the foods you are reacting to. Oxalates, salicylates, sulfur are the most common “other allergies” that occur when you lack the bacteria to breakdown or neutralize these by products. Reactions to these allergens can be extreme – from fainting to flushing, nausea, weakness and more. In today’s episode Dr. Jannine Krause breaks down how lack of certain bacteria can create food sensitivities & reactions to molecules in the foods you eat.
What You’ll Learn In Today’s Episode:
• How changes in your gut microbiome can create allergies
• Why eating lots of fiber feeds your microbiome

HOW DO YOU BALANCE YOUR GUT MICROBIOME?
1) Fermented foods – tempeh, kimchee, miso, sauerkraut, yogurt, kefir – daily small amounts starting at a tablespoon a day for 3 days and then going up by 1 tbsp till you reach 1/2 cup a day. Rotate your fermented food source.
2) Prebiotic foods – high fiber diet – sprouted or pressure cooked beans & lentils release SCFA (short chain fatty acids) like butyrate that fuel the gut lining and help protect the gut lining so beneficial bacteria can survive; chicory root, artichoke, dandelion greens, garlic, leeks, asparagus, wheat bran, flour, bananas.
**Note: you might not be able to tolerate large amounts of the prebiotic foods. Start with small amounts and ramp up.
3) Prebiotic supplements – inulin (or Therbiotic Complete by Klaire Labs – a probiotic with pre-biotic inulin), fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), galactooligosaccharides (GOS) – Microbiome Labs – MegaPrebiotic
4) Probiotics – consider these if you are not eating probiotic rich foods or consider a probiotic like Therbiotic Complete (noted above) or Ortho Biotic by Orthomolecular Products, or Soil Based Probiotics – Dr. Axe SBO Probiotics
