I was wondering, since food particles penetrate the intestines and float around in the bloodstream causing an immune response, what happens if all of our foods we eat startling
Hb doing that? Are we developing an allergy to all foods? Then what? We have to stop eating and starve to death? Right now I have an allergy to dairy, eggs and gluten so I avoid those foods. But lately I feel sick every time I eat anything what do ever. Keep in mind, I have not yet started the protocol on this website because I have to quit caffeine entirely (I am weaning myself off it slowly as I’m an addict). But feeling sick every time I eat anything for the past 4 days is starting to worry me that I am becoming allergic to everything, that every food is causing the leaky gut syndromeOctober 7, 2012 at 8:11 pm #90715

Focus on non-starchy vegetables,seeds and meat to minimize inflammation while avoiding nightshades, nuts, soy, and of course the foods you know you’re allergic to. L-glutamine is an amino acid that your intestines use to regenerate so you can supplement with that. Seacure is another supplement for leaky gut. The herb marshmallow can be used to soothe inflammation in the GI tract. You can “brew” a batch of it by adding 4 tablespoons or so to a jar of cold water and leaving it in the fridge over night. I have read that the lining of the intestines is regenerated every four days so theoretically you could try fasting for that long unless you have a specific health concern. Instead I would suggest eating lightly in general and not eating 3 or 4 hours before bed. Vitamin A in the form of retinal is also necessary for the regeneration of the intestinal lining, as is zinc. I would suggest that you try cod liver oil as it is an inexpensive source of retinal as well as as a great source of omega 3 which will reduce inflammation thus speeding your recovery. Please don’t worry. As long as you focus on eating vegetables and meats the allergic reaction will be minimal. Then, with the help of time and some of these supplements your gut will begin to heal and you won’t suffer from so many food allergies.
