    hey guys, i went to see ANOTHER naturopath yesterday who claimed to be a specialist in leaky gut. he could help me any more but anyway, he did a body coposition test and said my body is now using my muscles for protein and i really am waisting away. he also did a live blood analysis which was teally interesting. my bloods in bad shape like me. anyway he said im doing everything right, but for my body to heal properly i need protein. this is a problem as i cant tolerate any seeds, oils, meats. i will purchase some spriulina on monday. i think i might try organic lamb again just like 1 mouthful a week. what else would any one recommend? i take l’glutamine and slippery elm daily, with a couple days break a week so i dont become allergic. i eat only some green organic veg, thats it… this is so fucking hard.. and im covered in a full body rash.

    I’m sensitive to most plant proteins and I’m a vegetarian – I get my protein from hemp protein, buckwheat, eggs, and Greek yogurt.

    Try out the glutamine powder. Alex said the powder worked better than capsules.

    Try out taking inulin or trying out my raster bread.

    Try to work in small servings of meat.

    I also would consider supplementing with HCL (hydro-chloric acid) and this may reduce your reactions.

    To reverse the muscle loss you do need protein, but most all you need minerals and to heal leaky gut.

    hi raster! yes i use the lglutamine powder. can u purchase inulin on its own is it a powder? what does it do? my main naturopath said not to take hcl when trying to repair the gut as its too acidic? what do u think? what minerals would u suggest? i hav also been told i need protein to rebuild my gut

    Try bone broth. Grass fed organic beef bone broth takes longer than chicken to make, but has an awful lot of beneficial elements to healing the gut. Google it.

    Hemp is a seed, but it’s one that I haven’t gotten allergic to despite consuming a pretty big amount of it. Most natural grocery stores have bulk bins that sell hemp seeds – you could try just purchasing a handful and testing a small amount to see what happens. Have you tried chia seeds? They also have protein and you might be able to tolerate them.

    There are vegetables with protein too. Kale is the best one that comes to mind, plus things like spirulina (which you can take it pill form if you think it tastes bad).

    I think oat bran might actually have more protein than buckwheat. Have you tried it?

    It could be any number of things in the bread that you’re allergic to – not necessarily chia.

    Oat bran is a grain.

    I eat hemp seeds plain as a snack, or hemp protein powder mixed into my cereal.

    You could also try incorporating other seaweeds as sources of protein as well. Nori and dulse are known to have higher contents of protein than soy. Spinach, kale, broccoli, artichokes, brussel sprouts, asparagus and collard greens all have higher amounts of protein in them for green vegetable options.

    Hi mate,
    you can take gelatin in your drinks and can make jello. Gelatin is the best form of protein. It will help you. The ones from Great Lakes Gelatin are reccommendet.
