Healing Gut Questions
How long did it take you to heal? What foods did you avoid? What foods did you make sure to include? What supplements did you take and how effective do you think they were? I've been reading up on this and there is a lot of conflicting advice... (more)
Let me start out by saying that in May I temporarily moved to Australia for 6 months and was feeling fantastic. Plenty of energy and overall healthy! About 6 weeks ago I was diagnosed with strep throat and then 2 days later had to get on a plane... (more)
I have leaky gut, GERD, peptic ulcer, and a ton of food allergies. I am currently taking a 100 billion CU probiotic and an herbal pill from my acupuncturist to restore my spleen qi deficiency. I have not yet to have any relief from either of them.... (more)

Has anyone tried Gutpro probiotic? link text I am trying to find one to take on the GAPS diet, and dont like the additives Bio-Kult has (Maltodextrin is derived from corn.. bad)

7 years ago, I had a gastric bypass. I've lost a significant amount of weight, which is fantastic, but I underestimated the devastating effects this surgery would have on my digestive system. (I know - DUH) I lost a portion of my small intestine,... (more)
Greetings, PaleoHackers, I am the mother of a 3 year old daughter with sensory processing disorder (SPD). I have had her on the casein-free version of the GAPS diet for the last 6 months. Since GAPS is not meant to be super low carb long term,... (more)
Hello All, A little background: I have been eating paleo/traditional foods-ish for almost 2 years. Which for me means; no wheat, very little dairy, no legumes, no industrial oils (unless I am eating out). What I do eat; meats, liver, home-made... (more)
I think it's unlikely that rice itself is the problem. I would go to a (specialized) doctor and get it checked out. Just to be safe. Self-diagnosing stomach pains can be a bad idea.
There is a lot of talk about symptoms of an unhealthy gut and the path or paths to take to heal the gut, but I can't find much that describes a healthy gut. I realize it may be different from person to person, but what are some of the general... (more)

Looks like I lost. Trouble swallowing, food coming up, pressure in throat. I tried so hard to cure my GERD with diet, supplements, and herbs...but to no avail it seems (paleo for six months now). Now, I've no clue the damage I've done. I'm happy... (more)

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Is anyone familiar with butyrate and possible benefits for gut healing. What are the best fodd sources for butyrate?
If there is a food that bothers you and you eliminate it for say a year and then reintroduce it, will you now: Be able to eat it without getting bad reactions because you've healed? react even more because your body is not longer used to... (more)
I've been lurking on HealingWell and it seems some people have embraced the DIY idea quite firmly. I'm wondering has anyone on Paleo Hacks performed this procedure ? Or someone in "paleo" circles. Pfw told me about one case on PaNu (sadly if... (more)
I am a 27 year old female, relatively active (meaning I workout 3-4 times a week), and have been eating paleo for 6-7 months. Sometimes when I go to the bathroom, I feel a sharp pain and I find little traces of bright red on the toilet paper. ... (more)

Im guessing that perhaps Im having an issue with my gut lining. I was diagnosed with multiple food allergies before I went Paleo. The test was suspect though as the only foods that came up were also the foods that I was eating. Ive now been... (more)
One of my maxims is that you can't cancel out shit with fish oil. It doesn't work. Excess PUFAs of all kinds, yes even O3, cause oxidation and other forms of stress. Plus, do you think the hormones and other possible contaminants in conventional... (more)
Like many people, when I switched to Paleo I've had some issues with the gut. I've read that a good way to help reflux is to consume probiotics. I've been eating saurkraut and making kambucha tea but it seems like its causing more harm than... (more)

I believe that I had Leaky Gut. I also had very poor digestion. I started out at 6 caps of the Now Foods Super Enzymes but am now down to 1-2 with a meal. I also no longer feel bloated and have (pardon the TMI) nice, easily passed stools. I... (more)
Stephen-Aegis included in an answer from last year the following quote: "In my opinion Gut Health should be priority #1. With that taken care of, many allergies simply disappear." This reminds me of a related comment I saw from Dr Art Ayers'... (more)
