It is a must that remove all the bad things that affect your gut negatively, like infections, inflammatory foods, and some irritants like drugs, caffeine or alcohol.
Examples of inflammatory foods are sugar, eggs, soy, corn, dairy and gluten. It is best if you remove some on your diet to start identifying the foods that may cause you problems, remove these foods for about two weeks and one by one add them to your diet, make sure that you take not how your body is responding.
Few infections might be coming from bacteria, yeast or parasites. A stool analysis can determine where infection is in your body. Infection may be treated with antifungal or anti parasite medication, herbs, supplements or antibiotics.
Put back the necessary ingredients for proper absorption and digestion, which were depleted by drugs, aging, diseases or diet. This includes bile acids, hydrochloric acid and digestive enzymes, all responsible for the body’s proper digestion.
All the nutrients required to help your gut heal itself should be provided. Nutrients like Vitamins A, E and C, omega 3 fish oil, and zinc, including herbs like aloe vera and slippery elm. You can take it not just by food intake but supplements you can purchase over the counter.

Eating foods that are hire in soluble fibre and recommended supplements can help big time in restoring good bacteria.
