Leaky Gut, Food Allergies, Colitis & Buckwheat

Leaky Gut, Food Allergies, Colitis & Vitamin P [Rutin]

Leaky gut is caused by a breakdown of collagen in the intestinal lining. The most important nutrient to build collagen is Rutin, which is part of the Vitamin C complex. Rutin stimulates the production of collagen which helps to close the gaps in a leaky gut by tightening the intestinal walls. It is also very important to have more collagen in your diet, and the best whole food way to get more collagen is to drink bone broth. Below are some extracts from studies using buckwheat (which is very high in rutin, and also called Vitamin P) to heal gut issues.

“Allergies are due to undigested protein being absorbed in the bowel. And the lack of digestion is due to pancreas weakness number one, and due to possibly ulcers and inflammation in the bowel. A combination of poor pancreas and a little colitis and you’ve got allergies.

“There again colitis is nothing but vitamin P [rutin] deficiency. It’s the same lesion that you find in the gingiva only down further in the mucosa. It’s the same remedy. You can stop that ulcerated and hemorrhagic colitis just as easily as you can the gingiva.” —Excerpt from Lectures of Dr. Royal Lee, Vol. II., Selene River Press, Inc.

"Not only oral administration of rutin but also rectal administration of quercetin remarkably ameliorated TNBS-induced colitis rats, indicating that quercetin liberated from rutin is therapeutically active." (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15652231)

"Our results suggest that rutin may be useful for the prevention and treatment of IBD [Inflammatory Bowel Disease] and colorectal carcinogenesis via attenuation of pro-inflammatory cytokine production." (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16132362)

"We conclude that rutin exerts intestinal antiinflammatory activity in chronic…colitis.  Our results suggest that rutin may be useful in the management of inflammatory bowel disease in appropriate dosage conditions."  (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15652231)

I have been working with Jamie 2x per week for the past couple of weeks. He is extremely attentive, understanding and thorough. I was nervous to start with acupuncture because of my herniated disc and fear of needles but he has made the experience feel very safe and comfortable. I’ve noticed a decrease in pain after suffering for over a year. Highly recommend!

We learned about this facility years ago, and try to do a session every week, both practitioners are fantastic!

My first visit to this clinic was incredible. I found it to be educational, supportive and a step in the right direction for my health. Jamie was attentive and provided helpful information and recommendations. Already have a treatment plan underway and my next appointment booked! Highly recommend for anyone interested in acupuncture and what it has to offer.

I recently had an incredible experience at this place, and I don't even know where to begin. I found myself in unbearable back pain, unable to stand up straight, and unsure of what caused it. Fortunately, I was able to schedule a prompt appointment, and Jamie's expertise was truly amazing! After receiving both cupping and acupuncture treatments, I noticed a remarkable improvement right away and within just two days, i was 95% back to my normal self. Don't hesitate to book an appointment here—it made a significant difference for me.

This is the best place ever! I get cupping and acupuncture when my back starts acting up and leave feeling like 50 pounds was lifted off my back. Crystal and Jamie are very thorough in their questions to understand what’s going on and the treatment they provide. And the prices can’t be beat. 10/10

I have been going to Lakewood Community Acupuncture for over a year and can’t imagine my life without it now!! It can truly help with so much - from physical pain (I have issues with my pelvic floor and multiple herniated discs) to emotional blocks, energy deficiencies and more! I ALWAYS feel better after acupuncture. I’ve seen all the practitioners and they are all extremely skilled, but Crystal is my go-to. She is not only very gentle and effective but always a delight to connect with. For the quality of service, atmosphere and price, you cannot do better. It’s been a game changer for me. Wholeheartedly recommend!!
