Biohacks Part 2: The Gut

Updated: Nov 23, 2022

It starts with the gut.

Sixty-five to seventy percent of our white blood cells lay just beyond a thin protective lining in the stomach. This means that the majority of immune health starts and stops with the gut.

Unfortunately for us, many of the processed foods that make up our modern diet wreck this lining and cause toxins to easily invade the body. Two of the biggest culprits are gluten and high fructose corn syrup.


These ingredients attack the lining of the stomach, setting up an inflammatory response. Inflammation is an immune destructor and the start of a multitude of diseases and illnesses. Eat a lot of processed foods and know that you could be lowering your immune response by up to 70 percent.

Fortunately, you can build this lining back up and even bolster your gut health. One of the more popular ways to do this is something called the GAPS diet. The GAPS diet was popularized in 2010 by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride after researching a theory she later dubbed "leaky gut syndrome."


Just as the name would suggest, leaky gut syndrome is characterized by a damaged lining of the stomach leaching toxins into the body. The GAPS diet works by removing harmful grains and sugars while introducing high volumes of healthy fats and probiotics. It works in phases and over time so you can begin to reintroduce much of the food you used to enjoy. In addition to the GAPS diet, also try kombucha and probiotics.

I have done the GAPS diet twice for a month and have noticed a tremendous benefit. For me, it seems to work as a yearly reset when I start to notice more fatigue, bloating, uncomfortable stomach aches and pains etc. after eating.


After a month or so of the diet, I go back to normal eating patterns with far less discomfort. For more info on the GAPS diet, visit http://www.gapsdiet.com/.
