If you cannot have bitters, I would like to recommend a homeopathic remedy I take to cure leaky gut…as long as Able is OK with this idea (which I doubt). It’s called “digestive enzyme liquescence” and will normalize the production of digestive enzymes.
There are other “normal” non-homeopathic digestive enzyme products out there. One I take is called pro-gest digestive enzymes (which able also doesn’t recommend):
Another great way to get more digestive enzymes naturally is to chew your food more! Chew each bite 20-30 times before swallowing, and this will produce digestive enzymes as well. If you chew your food quickly, this could be part of the problem why it is never healing.
I wish you only luck! After about a month+ on any of these products, the leaky gut should improve enough for you to handle bitters or cinnamon.
Another alternative idea is to take the bitters anyways despite the allergic reaction if you can tough it out. It should only get better and hopefully within a few weeks you won’t react to it as badly.
Probiotics also work to heal leaky gut, but it takes a very long time!
Other effective supplements you can take to cure leaky gut:
Shark Liver Oil.
Methyl Sulfonyl Methane (MSM).
Barley Grass powder
Anti-oxidants such as vitamins A, C, E and beta carotene.
mineral supplements particularly selenium.
Aloe Vera Juice or powdered leaf.
Olive Leaf Extract.
Virgin Coconut oil
Foods with FOS also heals leaky gut:
onions, chicory root, garlic, asparagus, jícama, oat bran, artichoke, and leeks
Bioflavanoids also help heal leaky gut!
Get some inulin (miracle fiber) at the health food store and add it to your coconut bread and almost anything you eat (like yogurt)…inulin heals leaky gut.
