So it’s been a week with no relapse and I’m starting to distinguish more clearly between leaky gut reactions and candida reactions. I’m starting to feel better more often and I’m tolerating upwards of 3 tsp of coconut oil a day, megaflora at night, and plenty of antifungal foods. I was able to have some buckwheat last night and I only had a very minor intolerance and it filled me up pretty good. Right now I’m feeling hopeful but I’m wondering three things about my treatment.
1. Is it safe to use baking soda/warm water enemas a few times a week while on a probiotic? I’ve heard it can flush out the beneficial bacteria as well as the toxins. I did one two days ago and I had really good results, so I want to make it a regular thing if feasable.
2. Is it safe to keep eating foods that I’m having leaky gut reactions to? I’ve become intolerant to most of the food on the strict diet list but the reactions aren’t that bad for the most part and I feel like my current diet is the key to me staying on track right now.
3. How do leaky gut reactions affect my treatment? From some people I’ve heard to alter your diet around the food you react to and from others I’ve heard to tough it out and keep having the foods, especially if they’re nutritious, prebiotic, or antifungal. Does it affect me negatively to keep having foods I’m allergic to aside from the short pesky reactions?
Any input would be greatly appreciated.

In response to your questions:
1) Me and able both don’t have experience with enemas so you asking the wrong people.
2) I wouldn’t worry about the leaky gut reactions too much because in time it will improve or heal. The more limiting your diet is, the more difficult it could be for you in the long term.
3) You can alter your diet if you wish, I personally healed from all of my leaky gut allergies in time. The only thing you should really worry about is how good or bad your digestion is and whether or not your body is absorbing the food. The other thing you should worry about is whether or not its on the food list and what health properties the food contains.

Thanks. You helped me with 2 out of 3. I’m glad I was right about toughing it out because I don’t want to miss out on vital nutrients. I’ll ask Jorge about the enemas.
