Elemental Diet And Leaky Gut?
0

6 posts in this topic

Hi

I've been posting a lot of topics lately because it seems like everyone here knows so much it's awesome! Anyway I'm considering taking an elemental diet for sibo and I'm not sure if many people would know about it, but can it be bad for leaky gut? I can become intolerant to anything I consume too much so am I able to become intolerant to these too or does this not happen since they are made for gastrointestinal problems and are predigested?

Thanks a lot!

I'd love to know more about this, too. I can't seem to eat much, and the docs here won't put me on an elemental diet because I'm in a US military medical system and they don't support it (the GI used the words "tip of the spear" twice to refer to the medical care available...apparently the elemental diets are far away from the tip).

I tried two of the ones I heard about on this site. The first caused some malabsorbtion symptoms and the second...had trace amounts of casein. Which I'm pretty sure I'm intolerant to.

Do you want the casein one? I'm happy to ship it to you, free of charge -- I hate the thing going to waste. It's sealed, unopened, and supposedly works great. (I can send along the other one but it's already opened.)

PM me if you're interested. I can give you all the details of both and you can see what you think.

I did not improve at all on elemental diet -- I went from that to bone broth and slowly added cooked vegies blended with bone broth until I was able to tolerate more.

Little off topic: if you have leaky gut - are you aware that the vegetable oils, eggs and ultramarathons are probably contributing to that?

Hi, 

I know it's been years since you posted this, but I'm going through what you were and I'm curious if you were able to resolve your food intolerances. I am currently on the elemental for SIBO and then hoping to finally heal my leaky gut. I would love to hear from you!

    • Sounds like she's not into the whole thyroid idea, but is willing to check the t4. She also wants to check for other autoimmune diseases as she said some of my symptoms could match up with other issues. So I'm eagerly awaiting the blood draw.
    • Thank you so much for the reassurance! That makes me feel a lot better and ease some of the anxiety going through this lifestyle change.  It is so amazing to me how much our bodies are impacted by things they don't respond well too.  Luckily I haven't discovered much of the gluten free replacements yet. I'll definitely avoid those through this beginning phase until I start feeling better especially when I feel like I can eat all day long!  The list of foods with the low GI rating was super helpful also! Thank you for taking the time to offer some advice. I need all the pointers I can get at this point! 
    • In the doctors office right now, just had the vitals taken.... and hoping my doc of the day is sympathetic to symptoms.
    • Wow, I can just see you in that doctors office and the look on their face.  I have never had a monte cristo sandwich sadly, but I sure want one now. thank you for sharing your great story!
    • Yes! I'm one of the first people to import bag balm to the uk and can attest to its wonderful moisturising power. I use it often and haven't detected any side effects at all. In fact, moost of the time I forget it's on. Moore and Moore people are using it over here and moo moo mooo the moo of moo. When moo the mooo moo. Moo moo juicy grass, moo moo moo moo, can't stop chewing, moo moo, keeps my new tail moist,  moo moo, moo...
