Weight Loss is Easy After the Healing
Our client Jayne had been suffering from these problems for years. Her glucose started to inch up at the age of 50. She had been carrying stubborn belly fat for years; diabetes became a concern as well. That’s when she decided to take her health into her own hands, and called Zizania.
The first thing our nutritionist noticed was how swollen and hard her belly was. This is typical of an unhealthy digestive system. Jayne told us that she was always tired but taking naps never solved the problem. She was foggy and had a hard time concentrating at work. Regardless of how much sleep she got or how well she ate, she just kept feeling worse every day. We ran a stool test and an organic acid test which revealed the presence of SIBO and leaky gut syndrome. These problems prevented nutrients absorption and resulted in undernourishment.
Based on these discoveries, Jayne’s physician prescribed antibiotics to treat SIBO and we adjusted her diet to feed the good flora and keep SIBO from coming back; we developed a nutrition plan for her to address her deficiencies, allow her gut to heal, and lower her glucose all at the same time.
This picture [this picture is misplaced on page. It’s several paragraphs above] shows what happens when you have leaky gut syndrome. Food particles that are normally broken down at the brush border by enzymes, end up slipping whole through the damaged intestinal wall. Bacteria can also go through these spaces and reach the bloodstream. This leads to inflammation, allergies, and many other aches and pains that some people just learn to live with.
This is what Jayne had to say:
“I never thought I would have a normal belly again. I went from size 14 to size 10 in just 3 months. My energy level is up. I no longer have bad breath which is such a relief when I meet new clients. I now feel energized after eating instead of lethargic. I no longer have constipation or gas. Instead, I go to the bathroom like a normal person. I know I still have a long road ahead of me but I feel so much better that I am motivated to do whatever my nutritionist recommends. She’s been right so far!”
