If you have a ‘Leaky gut’ then you MUST heal it
Many people come to me with bloating and discomfort in their abdomen and multiple food intolerances.
With these types of symptoms I find that there is a gut problem which, if healed, will drastically reduce the intolerances.
So, if you do have multiple food intolerances my recommendation is that you get your small intestine tested first of all to see if its integrity has been compromised. If it has, then you heal it first THEN you do the food intolerance test because you will probably find that the food intolerances have been reduced considerably. There is nothing worse than restricting your choose of foods unnecessarily.
Most of us have some intolerance to today’s gluten and dairy protein. They are tough proteins to break down and they can cause damage to your small intestine – particularly if your stomach acid is low.
When the lining of your stomach gets damaged, it can become ‘leaky’ and allow undigested protein into your blood stream which can set off an immune reaction which, if allowed to continue unabated over many years, can lead to something as serious as an auto- immune disease.
So, if anyone walks into my room with high histamine levels, an auto immune system, chronic sinusitis etc the first thing I do is get them off gluten and if necessary dairy. It won’t be a cure but it will cut off 2 potential drivers of your disease.
Once we have located other potential causes we can then start the healing process. Only once that has been complete will I look at any food intolerances. By that time most of them, if not all, have disappeared. Those that haven’t can be dealt with.
