The gut restoration principle

A disbalanced or a damaged gut flora can be the reason for many different gut related health issues.

The good news is: Gut restoration can improve these health issues by restoring a healthy gut flora that is in balance. To understand the basic principle of gut restoration, just think of sorting out a savaged garden.

To fully understand the gut restoration principle, please take a look at the grey box to the right. Here, Mr. GUT is showing you how gut restoration works.

A disbalanced or a damaged gut flora is like a savaged garden

A savaged garden is usually overgrown by weeds and some plants, bushes and trees that have grown too big, whereas other species of your gardens flora have diminished. Flower beds are invaded by weeds and grass. If you only wait long enough, grass will completely take over all the flower beds and some plants will become extinct.

This is exactly the situation in a disbalanced or a damaged gut flora: some bacterial species have overgrown, other bacterial species have almost disappeared and some have become extinct. The result is that certain parts of the gut flora look like flower beds that have been completely overgrown by weeds and grass: the biologic diversity of a disbalanced or a damaged gut flora is dramatically diminished.

Sorting out a savaged garden is like gut restoration

Sorting out a savaged garden is like gut restoration for a damaged gut flora. In order to sort out a savaged garden you need to clear it out. Afterwards you can rebuild it by introducing new plants, bushes and trees by planting and seeding.

In the course of gut restoration, you first clear out the gut flora by intestinal gut cleansing. Afterwards, you introduce new bacterial species into it by rebuilding your gut flora. As you can see, gut restoration is just like sorting out a savaged garden.

Gut restoration

Gut restoration (sorting out a garden) involves two steps:

  • 1. Gut cleansing (clearing out the garden) and
  • 2. Rebuilding your gut flora (introducing new plants, bushes and trees)

The ultimate goal of gut restoration is to stabilise and reconstitute a healthy gut flora which is in balance.

Gut cleansing

Gut cleansing is the first step towards a healthy gut flora. By gut cleansing you create space in your intestines for introducing healthy gut bacteria.

Intestinal gut cleansing also is an excellent alternative to fasting and a great way to detox.

Rebuilding your gut flora

Following gut cleansing, rebuilding your gut flora will provide probiotic gut bacteria and create perfect conditions for them to colonise your gut.

Mechanical colon cleansing - Remove and dig out plants - Mechanical cleansing of the intestines can be achieved by using a diet rich in fibres. You can probably imagine how these fibres scrape along the intestinal wall during the intestinal passage and thus cleanse the old excrement deposits in your gut mechanically. For mechanical colon cleansing, you should eat only food rich in ...
Fungicidal treatment - Remove and control weeds - The purpose of the fungicidal treatment is to kill fungus, like the yeast Candida albicans, in your gut or at least to limit its spread. If you are experiencing excessive bloating or odorous passing of wind, especially after eating sweet foods (simple carbohydrates), this is often due to gas produced by intestinal yeasts. In these cases I strongly recommend you do a fungicidal treatment during gut cleansing.

Clearing out the garden


Fermented foods - Seed a mix of seeds - Fermented foods usually contain a large variety of different bacteria. This makes them particularly relevant for rebuilding your gut flora. Furthermore, regular consumption of fermented foods helps to reconstitute a physiological gut flora and to maintain a balanced and healthy gut flora in the long term. You will find directions on which fermented foods you should use for chronic constipation in chapter 5 of this guide.
Rebuilding your gut flora - Changes-in-eating-habits - Dietary fibre (prebiotics), Avoid sugar, Avoid carbohydrate-rich foods, Salad, Oils, Fermented foods, Only eat meat twice a week or less frequently (with moderation), Eat fish at least once a week
