Dr. Colbert’s Five Power Tools for a Healthy Gut

Dr. Colbert Describes How to Make Bad Health Symptoms Disappear in His Book,Dr. Colbert’s Healthy Gut Zone’

DALLAS — In his new book, “Dr. Colbert’s Healthy Gut Zone,” (DrColbertBooks), Dr. Colbert writes that patients will often visit his offices suffering from various symptoms. “With fifty patients, we could easily be talking about five hundred different symptoms, and usually, each patient is already taking one or more different prescriptions,” says Dr. Colbert. “That’s the norm.”

According to Dr. Colbert, another norm may also be of interest to his readers. “If all the patients would work to restore their gut health and eat the same gut-friendly foods, it is likely every single person would see improvement. Most symptoms would probably disappear and any sicknesses and diseases along with them.”

“That is how powerful the gut is,” states Dr. Colbert. “Once it is restored, it can put the rest of your body back together again.”

In Dr. Colbert’s Healthy Gut Zone,” Dr. Colbert further recommends “five power tools” for his readers to improve gut health:

  1. Fiber. The first gut power tool is plain old fiber—not beans, wheat bran, or grain-based fibers that are full of lectins but psyllium husk powder. Not very exciting or cool, but it plays an amazingly vital role in restoring your gut health. It is also very inexpensive, which makes it available to everyone.
  • Probiotics. Probiotics are living organisms that improve the health of your gut, specifically the good bacteria in your gut biome. Examples include pickles, yogurt and select cheeses such as Feta or Gouda.
  • Prebiotics. Like probiotics, prebiotics are incredibly beneficial to your gut’s microbiome and your entire GI tract. While probiotics are living organisms, prebiotics are more like insoluble fiber—undigestible and existing solely to serve your gut bacteria. Examples include apples, garlic and oats.
  • Polyphenols. Polyphenols are antioxidant phytonutrients found in plants that do your body good! Examples include blueberries, green tea and olive oils/olives.
  • Resistant Starches. The fifth and final gut power tool is resistant starches. Dr. Colbert defines them as carbohydrates that are not digested (they resist it) until they reach the colon, where they ferment and feed the good bacteria in the gut. Examples include green bananas, green papaya and yams.

Dr. Colbert’s newly released book is available through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, BAM, ChristianBook, Indiebound and Walmart.
