Restore Gut Health Supplement
I have been testing out a supplement called Restore that helps to heal the gut. I still have severe alopecia universalis, but other than that, I have great health. My digestion is very regular and I have lots of energy. This in part is due to the fact that a few years ago, I researched my brains out to find holistic healing methods for epilepsy. I have been following Dr. Zach Bush’s research and videos on the product and the science seems sound.
One of the reasons that I chose to try out this product is because Dr. Bush was talking about the correlation between the gut health and the brain health. This coincided with the research that Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride discovered as she created a diet to heal her son with autism. As I read the book, The Gut and Psychology Syndrome Diet, I was thoroughly impressed with how detailed Dr. Campbell-McBride was in detailing the causes and symptoms of “leaky gut,” and how it correlated to brain health. Her approach to healing the brain was to heal and seal the gut. Her protocol is very difficult to follow, but I did it for a good six months, which was not quite as long as the two years she recommended. Dr. Bush’s supplement Restore focuses on replenishing the bacteria in your gut that you are missing and helping to seal up the gut lining such that no toxins can leak through the blood brain barrier.
I have been using the Restore product for seven weeks now. It has not healed up my hair loss, but it is a bit too soon to see if that will happen. I fully expect to get my hair back as my health moves into the optimal state. I’m hopeful that this product can help me to get there. Restore is also supposed to protect against the toxin glyphosate. Glyphosate is the ingredient in Round-up that gets sprayed on the plants before they are harvested. While you can get higher quality food by eating organic, the glyphosate gets into the rain water and eventually on to the organic plants as well. So, I’m grateful for a product that is countering this toxin in our bodies.
I’m not a scientist, so I can only explain my vague understanding of what is happening with the product. It is a carbon lignite that is allowing more bacteria to attach to the lining of the gut. This proliferates the number and variety of bacteria in your gut. This builds up our immune system. Ever since I attempted a long term run of the GAPS diet and increased the amount of live probiotics in my diet (I drink a kefir smoothie most mornings), I really haven’t gotten sick. I work with kids and my coworkers fall ill, but rarely do I even get a sore throat. I attribute my overall health to the probiotics and the Buteyko breathing exercises that I do. I’m excited to add Restore to see if I can get even further benefit.
I will say, since taking Restore, I haven’t had any bowel movement complaints. I don’t have to strain or rush to the bathroom. It just comes out regularly every day after one or two meals. I’m hoping to do another post in a few months with actual hair regrowth, so I can say that it works on curing autoimmune hair loss, but we shall see. I’ll keep you posted!
I wrote this post after taking Restore for 1 month. I was very hopeful and optimistic that it would cure my ailments. I have been taking it for almost nine months now. I still haven’t cured my alopecia universalis. However, I have seen a major improvement with my seizure control. I was able to break through the plateau that I had of having a seizure every three months. I went six months without a seizure. This is huge. I have always had to be on the highest dose of medication and sometimes during my life on two doses of medication to prevent the seizures. I’m completely off all medication and the seizure that I had in August was very mild compared to the ones that I was having on medication.
