Am still having health issues when eating clean. I'im curious if a long fast would help

On a side note this website doesnt work well for me on my iPhone. At least the comment/question boxes. Is there a mobile version?

Sometimes it just takes time: a fast may not fix everything more quickly than just eating good food would. From what people have said, leaky gut and/or celiac disease issues can take 6 months to heal. I'm in my fifth month and starting to do better, but I've also had some issues with cross-contamination. Cross-contamination can be really sneaky and can really set back your progress.

As for fasting: there was a paleohacks question on here about bone broth fasts, and the top answer was someone who did a 3 day bone broth fast and 90% of her IBS symptoms went away.

I think it depends. I just recently had a unintentional gluten exposure and did a 2.5 day bone broth fast. Cleared it right up, however, I don't think it would have been as quick or beneficial without the bone broth. I also used some beet kvass toward the end and have been pounding the kraut ever since.

It would take me about 3 days to feel recovered after eating grains - maybe this is how long it takes to be all gone from the gut. I wouldn't have to fast completely to get relief, just eat things that are safe for me.
