I just signed up for this forum today so Im gonna ask a couple of questions that are on my mind. Thank you in advance for any input.
I have been treating my ailment for 3.5 months now and am better off than I was for the 4 years prior that I had no idea what it was.
My question is this, and I realize that it does not have a set answer. I read so many accounts of people feeling like garbage but not many people post success stories. I was wondering what an average timeline is for getting your gut flora back to normal and re-joining the populace of normal people in the world who can just eat food and feel normal. I have read something about 6-10 month range etc. I realize that your actions dictate how long this all takes but I need to get an idea of what I am looking at. A person can get very depressed reading the internet regarding any illness but especially with one that hits close to home.
Anyone who is very knowledgable on this topic, please chime in. I appreciate it greatly.June 21, 2012 at 3:42 pm #85140

I would plan for the 6-18 month timeline; I personally healed leaky gut 95-99% after 1 year on the diet.

Ok thank you for that. At least this is a positive goal to shoot for. Just like the news, people always talk about the negative and by reading the internet you can get this idea that there is no hope for getting back to normal so I need to hear that it is possible. Thank you and any other input is greatly appreciated thanks.June 21, 2012 at 6:56 pm #85146

Hello, Captain, welcome to the forum.
It took me probably four months or longer to finally come up with the correct Protocol that I wanted to follow which included a stricter diet. Once I had it right I followed the protocol very strictly for 3 to 4 more months before I was symptom free; but I never cheated once and took very high doses of probiotics and drank a “lot” of kefir. Of course, I wasn’t dealing with leaky gut which made a difference in the overall healing process.
For some of the members’ success stories and milestones on their journey, read the following post.
