    I was digging around in my tea basket this morning, and discovered some medicinal tea an herbalist friend made for me in September. I’d developed a duodenal ulcer after a weekend of extreme NSAID use (worst menstrual cramps in 10 years + shitty spa that wouldn’t let me cancel any of my massages = burnt a hole through my intestines), and after discovering after a few days that that’s what it was, I started drinking this tea. Along with fresh aloe gel from my plants and chia seeds every day, I healed the ulcer in less than a week. I talked to the herbalist again this morning, and she said it should be helpful for leaky gut, too (though presumably not on the same timeline).

    Here’s what’s in it:
    2 parts chamomile (flowers)
    2 parts calendula (petals)
    1 part licorice (root)
    1 part marshmallow (root, presumably)

    Instructions:
    Steep 1 tablespoon per 8oz for at least one hour. Drink 1/2 cup between meals 2-4x/day.

    Everything I’ve read seems to support this combination of herbs as being beneficial. If anyone has any evidence to the contrary, I would be interested to know.

    There is one that is very similar to this in its ingredients and its called throat coat tea. I feel throat coat tea is likely more effective personally. Your tea has more liver herbs in it than the throat coat.

    Thanks for your input. Throat Coat is available at the store, for when I don’t have time to barter.

    i’ve heard a few holistic digestive dr’s say chia seeds are bad for leaky gut. I myself had a problem with flax seed.

    Did they say why? I think chia is recommended for the forum’s cleanse because they’re so mucilaginous that they don’t have any sharp edges contacting the intestinal wall.

    I’ve been eating flaxmeal a few times a week with no problems, but then, I don’t think my leaky gut is as bad as some. I only have one definite food allergy that I’m aware of.

    I read it on the fix your digestion fb blog, I did a quick search but couldn’t find it.

    If you not reacting to it your prob ok. Once I took flax seed out my diet I felt a whole lot better, but thats not to say it wouldn’t work for someone else.

    I have eaten chia and flax seeds, both with no problems, and I have severe leaky gut.

    I haven’t tried chia seeds. I have tried flaxseed here and there, and put in recipes. I am not sure; sometimes I think I am okay with it and other times not. Does anyone on this forum use acacia fiber? I have some, but I have never used it that often. I did last year a little bit, but of course, I was reacting to everything! I have yet to try it this year. ??
