Are citrus fruits bad for a leaky gut?

Answered on August 19, 2014

Assuming one is not allergic to citrus fruits, would consuming them have a negative impact on healing a leaky gut?

I ask, because I often see leaky gut healing diets recommend no citrus fruits. My guess is, they do this since citrus fruits are a common allergen to many folks?

You probably had a mild case then. Even though my bacteria is low in numbers, it caused enough damage for me to tolerate only meat (not even fish).

If you serious about it, I would ditch the lemons for a while. Healthy people will thrive on lemons, sick people might not.

In my case, I dont feel any immediate adverse reactions. Im just a bit paranoid to anything that might detract from my gut healing.

I had IBS/SIBO for 10 years. I eat quite some grapefruit, and lemons. They don't make me sick.

I have SIBO and all kinds of problems (including leaky gut).

I feel like dying after having one teaspoon of lemon juice diluted with one cup of water. Not sure why. Maybe because of my gastritis?

Go figure...
