My Leaky Gut Is Fixed!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been dying to come on this discussion board with some solutions and things that are actually working! It has been a long road of difficult recovery for my digestive tract. But I'm finally in a good place. I did an elimination diet which helped me identify food triggers. My dr. has been great. He's walked me thru it all. He put me on Ultra Clear Sustain, and Ultra Inflammx (by metagenics) so I could get some nutrition into my body while we were working out all the food intolerances. My body was grossly malnourished. and it took us half a year to discover I also have allergies to soy, nuts, and milk. They don't make me near as sick as gluten, but taking them out of my diet was very helpful. My dr. also had me taken lots of fish oil, probiotics, and digestive enzymes while my gut took a year to recover from the damage gluten has caused. So be patient! It takes a long long time to really recover. I am really excited to help other who are struggling because I was suffering for sooooooo long! A good Dr. who combines western medicine, with nutrition, and natural supplements is key! I wish you all the best! I know how difficult a leaky gut can be. The sooner you fix it the better, my leaky gut caused all kinds of problems in other areas of my body, so it has been a long road to recovery. I hope I can help!

That is pretty much exactly how I healed myself as well. I will say that I am very mindful that it can come right back though if you don't continue to eat well and do all of the other things necessary to maintain optimal health.

Hey there! Glad to hear you have recovered, and have a supportive doctor. I agree wholly with the probiotics. I was told by my ND that I have to take them for the rest of my life. So I take them all the time. The Ultra Flamx did not work for me. As I have recently found out why is because I don't digest carbs. I have found the digestive enzymes work wonders, in particular the carb dig enzyme. However, with full strength regular dig enzymes they are too much for me and give me bad heartburn.

Good to hear you have found what works for you!!!! Best wishes!
