Experiences with Solving Leaky Gut Program by SCD Lifestyle?

This is a 60-day program by Jordan Reasoner and Steve Wright which is supposed to give you a roadmap to solve your leaky gut. Here's the link : http://solvingleakygut.com/

Basically, this is done in 3 steps : 1/ Remove leaky gut triggers (kind of paleo autoimmune protocol everybody follow for the first 30 days --- 2/ Rebuild your gut, using multiple ways (customized diet, supps and lifestyle changes) ---- 3/ Fix the root causes (kill GI infection, for example)

I really like their website and its resources & was wondering if somebody had already tried and if you could share your experiences and feedbacks here. What I find interesting in the program is : the customisation / the structured approach (I lack this so much!!) / the fact they had to deal themselves with health issues.

Thanks for sharing!

Unless you completely endorse a product or company these days, it is very risky to post any opinion which may be viewed in a negative light.

A couple of months ago I was very active, lifting weights and doing cardio (would hit the gym at least 4x/week), I felt great and energised at first, but overtime I became exhausted, getting palpitations, disturbed sleep and circles under my eyes. There is something quite addicting about exercising and beware that the physical stress may only show problems in the long run. The best kind of exercise for people with immune conditions would be low strain (think yoga), at least in the initial healing phases. Unfortunately people may only change their mind about things after damage is done.

Yes I'm really curious about your case :) Did you set a specific routine for exercise? Exercising makes a big difference for me. I feel so much better when I'm very active.

For me it's specially important to avoid lectins, some sources may not be obvious (cucumber and zucchini, the lectins infuse into the flesh of the vegetables), this made a lot of difference in my bowel movements (I suffered from constant constipation, noticed the difference right away). Consuming ginger-turmeric tea (aids the liver) has improved my health a lot (my liver was probably weak and high fat diet may have been a hard burden on it). These are some of the things that are working for me now, if you want to know anything specific feel free to ask.

it's been only 6 months that I began trying these specific things (including keto d.). With time I became more aware of sensibilities. Finding out which things I shouldn't eat is a big step. Some discoveries are very recent to me. I can't say I'm healed, but certainly feel improvements. Lifestyle is also a major factor, you gotta reduce stress to heal the body (strenuous physical activity may hinder gut healing as well).

So did you find what works for you? Do you consider yourself cured?

I have GI issues and have tried many things (which include guidelines from SCD, AIP, FODMAP and GAPS diets). Can't say that I have followed any of those protocols to the letter because eventually I find out that I have a specific sensitivity, so I need to adapt. For example, it's commonly suggested that people take bone broth in initial stages of diet for healing. But I found out bone broth is not always good for people with issues like me (I got a severe allergic reaction to it, my feet got swollen for days) and it could be safer to stick to stock (just meat and cartilaginous parts). Some protocols, when mentioning recipes for initial diet, suggest seasoning with black pepper, while the paleo AIP I came across suggests removing anything that comes from seeds (which include seed spices). That said, it's clear that being paleo is not enough to heal your gut in many cases, but following just one protocol may not be good as well, although there is a considerable amount of wisdom in them. As I see it, a lot of trial and error is required, removing foods and reintroducing them after some time - your gauge is your own bodily reactions, and you have to know your own body to recognise them - some reactions may not be so obviously connected to food at first but turn out to be important indicators to what may be doing you harm.
