Best-Selling Author, Don Colbert, MD: How a Leaky Gut Affects Your Life; How It Can Be Healed

DALLAS — “What exactly is a leaky gut?” That question, and many others are answered in best-selling author Don Colbert, MD’s new book, “Dr. Colbert’s Healthy Gut Zone” (DrColbertBooks). Dr. Colbert helps readers “unlearn” everything medical experts have been teaching about healthy eating for the last three decades and reveals the true path to digestive health through proper diet supported by nutritional supplements. Dr. Colbert’s book, which will be released on Jan. 5, 2021, is available to pre-order through AmazonBarnes and NobleBAMChristianBookIndiebound and Walmart.

According to Dr. Colbert, most diseases can be associated with gut health. “Almost every disease—from depression to anxiety, obesity, autoimmune disease, and heart disease—and the related symptoms that go with these ailments are associated with the health of your gut,” writes Dr. Colbert. “Yes, the symptoms are real, but they are a sign that something is wrong in the gut. The underlying problem is usually this: you have a leaky gut, which is an increase in intestinal permeability. This is the foundational cause of countless sicknesses, diseases (including autoimmune diseases), ailments, inflammation, pains, weight gain, and discomfort.”

Dr. Colbert explains that a leaky gut can also be called gut permeability, or increased intestinal permeability. Regardless, these gut issues have to do with problems that occur between the cells. Inflammation is the inevitable result of these many small leaks. And unfortunately for your body, inflammation is the root cause of most chronic diseases.

“Part of the challenge in the gut is that the purpose of the gut wall is to let nutrients, vitamins, simple sugars, and enzymes pass through and into the body,” explained Dr. Colbert. “That’s how the body is made to work. If it were an impermeable pipe, you would starve to death even while having a full stomach.”

“Another challenge is that the lining is only one cell thick and has a surface area that can reach 430 square feet. This entire area is simultaneously under attack by the food we eat, the medications we take, and the lifestyle we choose. The result is that the tight junctions between the cells of the gut wall are pried open just enough to let the wrong things through. Imagine taking your coffee filter and poking holes in it with a fork. Naturally, your next cup of coffee would be full of coffee grounds.

“What’s happening to your gut wall is similar. When many holes appear, inflammation begins, food sensitivities occur, health problems arise, and more holes appear, etc. Things get exponentially worse over time.”

Dr. Colbert ensures his readers that a leaky gut can be healed. He has had many patients who displayed various symptoms, and every symptom was what he describes as a “telltale sign of a leaky gut.” When he healed their leaky guts, they usually found the relief, fix, or cure they needed.

According to Dr. Colbert, there are two basic steps to fixing a leaky gut:

  • Step 1: Get rid of the bad. Remove offending foods, bad or excessive bacteria and yeast, parasites, medications, toxins, and more. Learn to cope with stress.
  • Step 2: Eat more of the good. Recharge the gut with good bacteria in the form of probiotics and sometimes prebiotics, and regularly eat foods that support the gut.

“When you remove the things that trigger a leaky gut and then recharge the gut with healthy foods, you will be amazed how your gut can heal,” says Dr. Colbert. “I have seen some pretty severe health situations start to turn around in as little as two weeks. More often, it takes four to six weeks for an undeniable change to take place, and within three months, the symptoms are usually gone or greatly reduced.

“Big holes in the gut from ulcers are well researched, painful, and potentially deadly, but it wasn’t until recently that we discovered how many smaller holes a gut can have. Much of the inflammation and discomfort, sickness and disease, people live with now makes sense. We know why it’s happening, and we know how to fix it. And when we fix a leaky gut, health usually returns to the body!”

Best-Selling Author, Don Colbert, MD on the Importance of Gut Health

Dr. Colbert: ‘Your Gut Affects It All”

DALLAS — In his forthcoming book, Dr. Colbert’s Healthy Gut Zone” (DrColbertBooks), best-selling author Don Colbert, MD, asks his readers, “How is it that the gut plays such a massive role in our overall health?” New York Times best-selling author Don Colbert, MD, helps readers “unlearn” everything medical experts have been teaching about healthy eating for the last three decades and reveals the true path to digestive health through proper diet supported by nutritional supplements. Dr. Colbert’s book, which will be released on Jan. 5, 2021, is available to pre-order through AmazonBarnes and NobleBAMChristianBookIndiebound and Walmart.

It might seem a little outrageous to some people that the GI tract, which is about thirty feet long, is all that important to every part of our lives. At one level, it does seem illogical that the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and large intestine can affect the brain, immune system, heart, body weight, and overall health.

“But imagine you have run a hot bath and are preparing for a relaxing soak after a long, hard day,” said Dr. Colbert. “A live electrical wire runs right through the water, but you have been assured that the wire has no holes. Would you get in the tub?

“Just like a wire, your gut can develop holes, and that is only one of the problems. Another issue is the fact that what we put into our mouths in the form of foods, beverages, and medications can kill off so much of the good bacteria in the gut that it takes years to regrow.”

Dr. Colbert explains that the proven and potential effects cannot be ignored because they come in the form of symptoms, ailments, sicknesses, and diseases. All of this comes through the doctor’s door at one time or another. According to Dr. Colbert, the following list of issues have one thing in common: a healthy gut can bring relief from them, reduce the effects, and sometimes heal every one of them.

  • Brain: ADHD, Alzheimer’s disease, autism, brain fog, dementia, memory problems, Parkinson’s disease, Tourette’s syndrome
  • Lung heart, and mouth: asthma, atherosclerosis, gum disease, halitosis, heart disease, high blood pressure
  • Body: allergies, arthritis, chronic fatigue, chronic yeast problems, diabetes, extreme menstrual and menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, food sensitivities, joint and muscle inflammation, obesity, slow metabolism
  • Autoimmune: Graves’ disease, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, vitiligo
  • Skin: acne, dermatitis, eczema, lichen planus, psoriasis
  • Mood and sleep: anxiety, depression, insomnia, mood swings
  • Gut: acid reflux, celiac disease, chronic constipation or diarrhea, Crohn’s disease, gas and bloating, inflammatory bowel syndrome (IBS), small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), small intestinal fungal overgrowth (SIFO), ulcerative colitis, ulcers

“What is pretty incredible—even amazing—is watching patients with one or more items on this list improve by getting their guts healthy again,” continued Dr. Colbert. “I have seen patients’ symptoms eradicated, medications discontinued, and diseases cured.”

There is no single comprehensive test to gauge the health level of your gut and its microbiome. However, the previous list of symptoms, ailments, sicknesses, and diseases is a telltale sign of your gut health. If you suffer from anything on that list, then your gut health probably needs improving.

Physician and Best-Selling Author Dr. Don Colbert Releases New Book, ‘Pandemic Protection’

Dr. Colbert explains how to optimize your health, protect your family, and detect early warning signs of disease outbreaks

ORLANDO, Fla.—Physician and Best-Selling Author Don Colbert, MD, is releasing his timely new book, “Pandemic Protection,” outlining safe, natural ways to prepare the immune system before you need it.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the entire world has had to rethink the way we do health. With this new paradigm backed by the latest scientific research, Dr. Colbert shares cutting-edge medical advice and tells readers everything they need to know to optimize the body’s immune system, avoid exposure, detect the early warning signs, and treat and recover from illness during pandemics like COVID-19.

“The good news is that we don’t need to be at the mercy of pandemics,” said Dr. Colbert. “As individuals, cities, and nations we have the power to rewrite our future when a virus or other invader comes knocking. I outline ways to achieve a high level of preparation for any pandemic by building up our health and immune systems in advance in ‘Pandemic Protection’.”

In “Pandemic Protection,” readers will learn:

  • What the Bible and past pandemics can teach us about outbreaks
  • How telemedicine and technology are changing the way we do health care
  • How the key to a strong immune system is a healthy gut
  • Ways to protect your health through diet, natural supplements, and the latest breakthrough medical treatments

As serious as recent pandemics have been, it’s only a matter of time before the next potential outbreak finds a foothold somewhere and joins the pantheon of pandemics in history that shape lives, change societies, and even topple empires. Vaccines can be helpful, but just as importantly, personal preparation to build up defenses through a lifestyle of health and wellness is too. Medical science has shown that those whose bodies, minds, and spirits are firmly grounded in health-giving practices and habits are better prepared for survival. You can help prevent the next pandemic from harming you, your family, your community and nation. “Pandemic Protection” will show you how.

Pandemic Protection” is released by Siloam Books on Charisma House, which publishes books that challenge, encourage, teach and equip Christians.
