Detoxifying and healing Leaky Gut with Raw Foods, Superfoods and Juices

by Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo, MS, DC, CCN, DACBN

I’ve been doing option 2 of the 6 week detox program and LOVING it.  I find it quick and easy to fit in, once you get the hang of it.   I’m consuming lots of greens, I’m full all the time, unlike when I juice,  and I have tons of energy.    I’m still working on fitting in some of  colon cleansing pieces, but now that I have down the shakes and the intestinal cleanse parts, I can add the pieces that have not gotten the attention they need.

Last time I did the 6 week detox, I was putting all the powdered food concentrates and herbs into my green smoothies, along with the sprouted rice protein powder.  Yuck.  I had a hard time making it taste decent.  The smoothies were thick and sludgy and not very appealing.

I’ve since discovered a quick and easy way to do my leaky gut repair shakes.

Here’s a brief video I did of me making a shake.

Here’s how I recommend making your leaky gut repair shakes for the 6 week detox.

1- Put your chosen powders into a 1 quart mason jar.  I use the Warrior Foods enhanced powder, with Sprouted, Raw, Non-GMO, Organic Brown Rice Protein, Organic Hemp Protein, Organic  Vanilla Bean, Wildcrafted Nopal Cactus, and  Organic Whole Leaf Stevia.  To that I’ve been adding any combination of  the following, according to my desire at the time.

  • One or more Green powders:Vitamineral Green, Chlorella, Spirulina, Blue Green Algae (sometimes I use a tablespoon of each)
  • Earth – A Health Force Nutritionals product that contains herbs and whole foods concentrated that heal damaged intestinal linings and support the liver in detoxification.
  • Fruit powders (optional):  Pomegranate, Goji berry, Camu Camu, Lucuma, Fruits of the Earth.
  • Hormone support and adaptagenic Herbs: Licorice, Aswaganda, Maca, holy basil, bacopa

2- Add water to almost fill the jar, leaving room at top for shaking.  Shake vigorously.

3- Add ginger juice and lemon juice – one or more tablespoons of each, depending on your taste buds.  You can experiment and determine the the amount you like best.  Shake again.  I juice a big piece of ginger every few days — either in the juicer or in the blender with water — then I strain it.  I do the same with Lemon, so that I have it handy.

When I first made this, I was shocked at how good it tasted.  The first time I did it, I was cautious about the quantityof herbs and greens I put in.  I’ve been experimenting and now I just load lots in there.

I find this shake very filling and energizing.

Another success had been my use of the Health Force Nutritionals Intestinal Drawing Formula. Last detox, I dreaded it.  Made as directed it was thick and slimy and hard to get down.  I discovered, with the help of my mason jar how to make it very tolerable, and in fact quite satisfying.  I wont go as far as to say yummy, but definitely not unpleasant.  I’ll share more on how to make that tomorrow, along with my confessions about where I’ve fallen short of expectations.  For now, I’m heading into the hot tub and sauna for a detox sweat!

Love, Health and Happy Detox smiles,

Dr. Ritamarie
