The microbiome is one of the most important ecosystems in your body. The bacteria in your gut that help us process foods and absorb nutrients are responsible for weight, mood, energy, and overall wellness. This amazing community of bacteria, also called “the second brain”, has an enormous effect on your sleep, skin, allergies, hormones, immunity, and more.
How do we improve our gut health after periods of overindulging? And how do we maintain a healthy gut throughout the year?
Both our Organic Meal Delivery and Provenance Detox program rely on the wisdom of the microbiome to do the heavy lifting so that you can live your life eating and enjoying real food that promotes a healthy gut and makes you feel amazing from the inside out. You won’t feel deprived as your body rebalances itself to lose weight, reduce inflammation, and increase energy.
We follow the 4R philosophy from functional medicine perspective.
First you REMOVE, anything that interferes with a balanced microbiome and your ability to digest. All of our meals eliminate inflammatory triggers like gluten, dairy, refined sugar, and processed cooking oils. Alcohol, additives and preservatives, environmental toxins, and even stress can damage the gut lining and promote leaky gut. To take your gut health to the next level, our detox also removes meat, corn, and soy.
Next you REPLACE and nourish your body with nutrient-dense real food throughout the day. All foods you eat should be as minimally processed as possible and made from ingredients that are grown with lots of TLC to ensure you are nourishing your body.
Once you've cut out inflammatory triggers and started fueling your body with nutrients, then you have to REINOCULATE with prebiotics and probiotics. Feed the healthy bacteria in your gut with prebiotic foods like onions, garlics, sunchokes, radishes, and jicama.
Add probiotics in the form of fermented foods and supplements like our new probiotics called Flourish. They are designed to help support body weight regulation by delivering targeted probiotic support as Bifidobacterium lactis B-420™ which has been shown to help control body fat and body weight.
Lastly you REPAIR your gut lining with lots of vegetables, healthy fats, plant-based proteins rich in vitamins and minerals and amino acids to protect your body naturally.
