14 Day Gut Reset
Why reset my gut health?
As Hippocrates said, ‘All disease starts in the gut’. We have more bacteria in our gut than cells in our body. Toxins in our home, food, beauty products, as well as medication like antibiotics, are having a negative impact on the bacteria (microbiome) in our gut.
This has resulted in many of us having Leaky Gut Syndrome where permeations in our gut allow unwanted toxins to leak into the bloodstream. Symptoms can include anxiety, depression, poor immune system, hormonal imbalances, sugar and carb cravings, bloating, skin rashes and eczema. If you experience any of these symptoms you might want to look at your gut health.
Thankfully, we can start to change the makeup of our gut bacteria in just three days. This is why Ossa has created the 14 day Gut Reset – to give you the tools and knowledge on how to heal and nourish your body and prevent disease in the future.
A gut reset can be as steep as you would like it to be. It is not a detox or diet but rather a recommendation on how to reset your gut health and kickstart your body’s natural healing process. Our guide is just that – a starting point and a place to learn.
This challenge embraces the healing power of bone broth which acts as a broom for the digestive system. It contains healing and connective-tissue-building compounds such as collagen and amino acids, and gelatin content scientifically proven to repair the gut lining – which in turn helps fight disease and inflammation.
The challenge starts with a bone broth fast (4-24hrs) to fast-track better digestion and increased energy. This is followed up with probiotics and fermented foods to repopulate the gut with healthy bacteria. You’ll avoid chronic inflammatory foods including commercial dairy, gluten, wheat, sugar and alcohol which are toxic to our microbiome. Rest assured, food on the gut reset challenge is nourishing and restorative. Enjoy softly fried eggs with kimchee avocado and baby spinach; bone broth Shephard’s pie; or Ossa’s delicious banana pancakes.
How will I feel?
Increased energy, better digestion, weight loss, a faster metabolism, mental clarity, stronger immune system, clearer and brighter looking skin, and more restful sleep. These are all typical benefits of having a healthy gut.
CEO & founder, Catherine Farrant, started Ossa Organic after discovering the benefits of bone broth while pregnant with her first son Jack in 2012.
“Gut health is a gradual lifestyle change and does not need to happen overnight especially when you consider removing all toxins such as those found in beauty and home products. It took me two years to change mine and my husband’s way of eating. It has now been five years and it started with one small change. Maybe from this challenge you will start incorporating a cup of bone broth into your day or into your cooking for the family each week.”
