Success Stories Please!

I am looking for some inspiring stories about leaky gut and food intolerances. I am currently on a rotation diet trying to fix leaky gut and I read a lot of posts on this site but sometimes they can be very sad. Which in turn can make me sad. Even my own posts are very sad and depressing.

Has anyone ever beaten this and gotten better? How long did it take you? What diet did you try? Supplements? What can you eat now?

I don't know if I would be considered a success story or not. The sad thing is when you have food intolerances, they can and often do change over time. One Dr. told us to be rested every 3 years. My last test was the hair test. Therre were 21 intolerances on that list but really it is more because it includes all fish and seafood. No matter to me since I don't like that stuff anyway. I did like tuna but I can live without it. Some of this stuff I never would have found on my own. Like the thyme, marjoram, cloves, allspice, lovage or even mint.

I just know that I immediately stopped eating all of those things. And a number of problems cleared up. Bowel problems, nasal/sinus problems, weird nose bleeds, weight gain, swelling of hands, even elevated blood sugar. I am a diabetic. I have had to reduce my insulin use and I think I need to reduce it further because I am having some lows.

I take a ton of supplements, none of which really relate to this or maybe they do. Since I can't eat some foods, I am lacking in some things. There is something that is only in fish that I am deficient in. But unless things change, I will have to remain deficient. I did try krill oil for a little while. It didn't seem to benefit me and I couldn't stomach the smell of it. I also have additional medical problems that limit what I can eat even further. And I simply don't like meat. I do have to force myself to eat some, mainly because it is difficult to dine out if you don't eat it and I get anemic if I don't have red meat twice a week. So mainly I use my restaurant meals for that.

I am not going to list all of the supplements that I take because they wouldn't necessarily apply to you. But I do think most everyone would benefit from a good probiotic. Do read the label if you have dairy problems. Some contain dairy.

Unfortunately, you may not see many success stories posted? Those who have been successful in getting things sorted out and are now healthy tend to move on..and not stick around here?

The ones that are doing great..just get on with the life they had before. They may drop in from time to time to say hello..or they just read a bit..or they come back if some issue crops up and they need help again?

I know sometimes the posts here are depressing..but this is a place where we can share our feelings, or symptoms with others that "get it". Sometimes people post when they feel at their wit's end? We need to have a place where we can "get real", instead of putting on a brave face like we have to do when we're around others that aren't gluten-free?
