Mark Hyman, MD: 5 Steps to Kill Hidden Bugs in Your Gut That Make You Sick: “Five Steps to a Healthy Gut (and a Healthy Body!)
Follow these five simple steps to begin rebalancing your gut flora.
1. Eat a fiber-rich, whole foods diet–it should be rich in beans, nuts, seeds, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables–all of which feed good bugs.
2. Limit sugar, processed foods, animal fats, and animal protein–these provide food for unhealthy bugs.
3. Avoid the use of antibiotics, acid blockers, and anti-inflammatories–they change gut flora for the worse.”
