No one, including your ingenuous doctor, can tell you how long it will take you to cure your leaky gut. There’s a very simple reason for this; you won’t cure your leaky gut until you’ve stopped the infestation of Candida albicans in your body. And of course, how long it takes to reduce the infestation sufficiently enough to heal your leaky gut depends on the type of treatment you’re on; it also depends on you and how closely you adhere to the diet and treatment.
In as few words as possible; your leaky gut is caused by the Candida boring holes into and through your intestinal walls with their hyphae (root-like structures). The tiny holes allow food particles such as undigested proteins as well as bacteria and other substances to escape from the stomach through the tiny holes and eventually into the bloodstream. This is leaky gut syndrome.
From the description above, any us os can realize that you cannot heal leaky gut syndrome until you have managed to change the fungal Candida back to their benign yeast form and reduced the infestation to a bare minimum so that they are no longer boring into your intestinal walls. Until that point, it’s a waste of time and money to attempt to heal the leaky gut. The best you can do for leaky gut problems if you have a Candida infestation is to treat the inflammation in the gut in order to reduce your suffering.
The most important thing you need is a good Candida diet and a good supplement protocol to accompany the diet, and you need to remain on these continually.
If you don’t have the diet and protocol that the forum is using, let me know and I’ll send the information to you.
