Anti-Inflammatory Essential Oil Blend for Leaky Gut

by Jodi Cohen

Many health issues can be traced back to inflammation – poor focus and concentration, digestive dysfunction, high blood pressure, fluid retention, asthma, dementia, cramps.  If you dig a bit deeper, all of these can be traced to inflammation of the small intestine, commonly known as leaky gut. Anti-Inflammatory Essential Oil can help heal your gut.

This is because up to 80 percent of the body’s immune cells, known as peyer’s patches, can be found in the lowest part of the small intestine, known as the ileum. This makes sense given that digestive track is exposed to pathogens from the external environment and the body should diffuse the threat in the small intestine before it enters the blood stream.

If you think of a soccer team with a really good goalie, they will never lose because the goalie will block everything undesirable from getting into the goal.  Our intestinal mucosal lining is supposed to work the same way, blocking the pathogens, while absorbing the desirable nutrients that we need to grow and heal.

Unfortunately, what often happens is that the processed, pesticide laden or genetically altered food we are eating inflames the walls of the small intestine allowing both the good and the bad to get in.  Imagine if the goal on a soccer field was inflamed to cover a much larger area.  It would be a lot more difficult to prevent the other team from scoring a goal.

So when we think about healing an inflamed leaky gut, we obviously need to start by removing the cause of the inflammation, such as inflammatory foods.  All processed foods, grains, dairy, corn, soy, nuts and occasionally nightshades and eggs need to be eliminated to avoid triggering ongoing inflammatory responses.

The next step is to heal the lining of the small intestine.   Several dietary and supplement regimes help with this effort, including the bone broths recommended in the GAPs diet, along with Biotics IPS and Apex Energetics Repairavite.

We have found that Vibrant Blue Essential Oils, especially the Parasympathetic™ blend applied to the vagal nerve before meals and a combination of the Intestinal Mucosa™ and Anti-Inflammatory™ blends topically applied around the belly button 2 -3 times per day can help support the healing process.

The reason leaky gut is such a huge problem is because of the inflammation. Healing inflammation with essential oils helps to heal Leaky Gut.  

Obviously removing the inflammatory foods can help, but often not as quickly or efficiently as we would like which would explain why people stay on elimination diets for months and sometimes years with little noticeable improvement.  Imagine the impact of expediting the healing for the inflammatory process.  Now consider adding Vibrant Blue Oils Anti-Inflammatory™ to your leaky gut protocol.
