A couple people I've talked to have told me that gluten intolerance can be caused by leaky gut and leaky gut can be caused from gluten. it makes better sense being caused from gluten. but then i really thought about it and if you picture an inflamed intestine and you gave it gluten (which hangs around in your gut so it takes longer to digest) and your gut is not absorbing it right due to its inflamed status, is it not possible to not handle gluten? just like you can't handle dairy but once your gut heals I've known some of you to be able to consume dairy once again. these are just theories and its really amusing how some of you get so worked up about them. you continue to think in the box. i enjoy living outside the box. i just believe that anything is possible. when i seen my uncle in a hospital bed from brain cancer and he's dying, and i have the doctors telling me he's going to live for 6 weeks. then out of NOWHERE, 2 days later, the cancer is untraceable in his body. vanished. i believe in miracles and i believe in being positive. maybe all my research is wrong and I've wasted my time but i enjoy trying to help people live comfortably with this disease. Alot of people don't take to well to it. as i did not at the beginning either.

Guys can you explain "leaky gut"? Do you mean bleeding?

Briefly (and very simply) your small intestine is held together by "tight junctions" which let through only fullly digested particles of food into the blood stream for our nourishment. Celiac disease causes these junctions to loosen up and let through larger particles (not fully digested) which our bodies in an autoimmune response then form antibodies to.and attack as foreign invaders like bacteria and viruses. Thus you have a leaky gut.
