In this short video, we’re going to talk about the best food to help prevent polyps. A polyp is an abnormal tissue, or pedunculated tissue, in your colon. Certain colon polyps can increase the risk of colon cancer.

The best food to help prevent polyps may be sauerkraut or pickled vegetables. This is because they contain lactobacillus, which is a specific type of lactic acid bacteria.

• Inhibits pathogens
• Is an antioxidant
• Is anti-inflammatory
• Helps to tight junctions in your colon
• Binds to carcinogens
• Can decrease mutations
• Can decrease pre-cancer growth

With sauerkraut or pickled vegetables, you are not only getting probiotics but also prebiotics. A prebiotic is fiber that feeds the microbes and makes short-chain fatty acids, one being butyrate. This could help reduce the stimulation of polyps and decrease inflammation.

You don’t need a tremendous amount of sauerkraut or pickled vegetables, but it may be beneficial to include these foods in your diet throughout the week.

Dr. Berg is a licensed chiropractor in Virginia, California, and Louisiana, but he no longer practices chiropractic in any state and does not see patients so he can focus on educating people as a full time activity, yet he maintains an active license.

Thanks for watching! I believe this could be the very best food for polyps in the colon—you may want to give it a try.

  1. Thanks for the super useful videos, Dr Berg. For lactobacillus, I consume yoghurt and Keifer and for prebiotics I take enough fibre from vegetables. I hope that works as well. Meanwhile, can you recommend something for polyps in gall bladder too?

  2. Thanks for your hard work and your commitment to good health 🙏🏼🇺🇸🙏🏼 Dr Berg and Dr Alan Mandel are a blessing to the world. And anyone else helping humanity with healing research on health and wellness.

  3. Dr. Berg shares his knowledge with the whole world. God bless you and your family for informing everyone on how to stay healthy. Gary..

  4. Since watching Dr Berg’s videos I usually have a small salad with my dinner containing cucumber, cherry tomatoes, pickled beetroot and sauerkraut. His advice is so valuable. Thank you

  5. Great info Doc.My GI doctor never mention this and had 3 polyps removed from my last colonoscopy !!! Really admire you Dr Berg , thank you very much.

  6. This is a superb short and straight-to-the-point video. A cancerous polyp was found 20 months ago during a colonoscopy. I haven’t detected any symptoms of a spread of tumours yet, but I will take Dr Bereg’s advice and stick to it. –And to Dr Berg’s advice.

  7. Thank you so much once again Dr. Berg for this excellent advice! I always knew that pickles are healthy (macrobiotic type diet), but never knew the specifics before.

  8. Well done Doctor Berg you and people like you are our HEROS, you have the passion and resolve to do that little bit more when it comes to duty of care.
    Thanks for helping us slowly coming out of the dark ages.

  9. I love your videos and I am well aware of what Polyp’s are as I had my first one removed on the 15th of Oct. 2021 but that’s just the beginning of the story. I apparently was a rare case according to my Doctor because what happened was when he cut out the Polyp he also cut into a blood vein underneath the Polyp but did not realize he had. I need to shorten this story by saying that within 24 hours I was literally bleeding to death internally. I had 12 medical personal in my ICU room force pumping almost 5 units of blood into me. The same Doctor came in and repaired the damage but it was the Nursing staff that kept me alive. I know it was a mistake and we have no plans to sue the Hospital or the Doctor as of now. I can only say that a Colonoscopy is very routine and safe but what happened to me can happen to anyone.

  10. Will have my second colonoscopy in about 2 months. First one they found 4 polyps. Weren’t cancerous but was told they have the potential to be cancerous. *Was never told about sauerkraut or pickled vegetables and I love them all!* Rest assured, I will be eating my fair share of these items, not only for the next two months, but from now on.

  11. This is what you get from a doctor who sees treating the body more of an art than a science.
    Well done Doc 👍

    • @neosrt10 ‘Treating’ the body is more of an art that a science. And holistic doctors know this.
      But, you can think otherwise.

    • @neosrt10 The so called science of nutrition is up in the air and is constantly changing but, the truth of it is you in general are what you eat.
      I don’t need science to tell me how to look after myself I’ve been doing it for most of my life.

  12. My Grandmother had these. Thank you for taking the mystery out of it. Love your videos! I started eating turmeric sauerkraut everyday about 6 months ago. I feel amazing!!

  13. I grow up in a country that fermented fruit and vegetables are part of daily diet. l never heard of colon cancer. thanks dr berg.

  14. I have struggled with polyps for 15 years. I’m 57 and had a family member pass away from colon cancer. I have been learning from Dr. Berg’s videos and started Keto/IF. Now I know what to eat to prevent those little buggers from returning. Strange thing, you would think the gastro doctor would inform the patient about ones diet for prevention, oh, I forgot they just want more patients to keep returning so than can fill their pockets.

  15. I’m from Poland and we eat lots of sauerkraut here especially during the winter season. I’m talking good- home made, raw sauerkraut and also pickles. That being said my mother developed colon cancer and my opinion is that number one factor in these type of disease is stress. Not only we stress too much but we don’t know how to actively destress. It’s very important to practice some sort of relaxation be it meditation or yoga or whatever.

      Anesthesia is safe enough for most people, but some people do react negatively. Just be aware of that and don’t be afraid to ask the anesthesiologist questions.
      Before any medical procedure, you need to find a way to relax and not go into it afraid.
      Sometimes it’s just a fear of the unknown. Just having your doctor explain the whole procedure from start to finish can help ease stress.

    • I know Im Bulgarian . And i love pickles and Sauerkraut / Kiselo Zele / yes ! But Believe me we have lots of Colon and Stomach Cancer in Bulgaria . People are overeating it and it is very High on Sodium ! And they Never Combine with Fresh Fruits and Organic Kefir to wash it down unfortunately . Bad habits and Ignorance ! Add the Cigarettes and the Rakia to the Mix and its deadly ! Very sad !

  16. Thank you Dr. Berg.
    This year my wife and I have been doing TMAD and we include a serving of sauerkraut in both meals.

      I believe a doctor is someone (Chiropacter, herbalist, Grandma, Mom, Grandpa, Dad…anyone) who treats (doctors) people with remedies with a goal to heal the root of the health problem or teaches people how to prevent or heal themselves.
      Most medical doctors treat symptoms of illnesses with pharmaceutical medication.
      I prefer a doctor without the M.D. behind their name.

  17. I also eat raw cabbage frequently both purple and green in a salad. It also inhibits colon cancer and polyps. Love it with walnuts and Italian or a good ranch dressing and a handful of celery and cucumber and throw in some raw pumpkin seeds! Can’t get better than this to me!❤️😊
