Dr Oz: 5-Year-Old Genius Talks About Digestion
Could you have leaky gut? You’ll first want to take the quiz here to find out, then hear what 5-year-old Anson Wong has to say about digestion and how you can fix your gut. The little genius creates videos to share online and his “How Digestion Works” video got the attention of Dr Oz. In the video, Anson explains that food goes down the esophagus and into the stomach where it experiences mechanical breakdown with the help of enzymes. He also shared that hydrochloric acid helps it, which means he knows more than a lot of first-year medical students.
Dr Oz: Fix Your Leaky Gut
Dr Oz said he certainly looked forward to meeting Anson someday, but then was surprised to see little Anson run out on set. He shared that he learned everything he knows from his mom and dad. Little Anson was thrilled to help Dr Oz continue to teach the audience about leaky gut.
Dr Bhatia explained that hydrochloric acid is important because it helps prevent a leaky gut. But you lose hydrochloric acid when you get sick or stressed. It’s important to replace hydrochloric acid and a great way to do that is with lemonade or lemon juice. However, the lemonade you buy at the grocery store typically has too much processed sugar in it. That’s exactly why Dr Bhatia shared a way to make your own. Find the recipe on the following page.
