If your guts damaged enough to be permeable, it would seem likely lemon juice would cause pain, no?

Irene, in answer to your question, there is a way to test for it, if you want clear answers. Roughly: You ingest some substance that normally doesnt get into the system through the gut, and then test for its presence in the blood. There are some people that run such a test. Doesnt seem too wack-job to me as a concept. Most people just figure I think a) I have a digestive issue b) I have some other strange issues = c) maybe they are related. If your not doing urself any harm/taking risks in the cure, this seems like valid guesswork to me.

^ Doctors do not test for leaky gut, nor do they generally beleive in it, as an illness, despite its presence in academic literature/studies (increased gut permeability). Oh, and a negative breath test is not definative for SIBO, even an intestinal culture isnt despite being the "gold standard", not that it matters.

Irene, I was given a breath test to screen for SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth). Mine was negative, i.e. no leaky gut, despite my IBS. I see a lot of people on this site self-diagnosing themselves.

Bone stock/broth! (Glutamine, gelatin and glucosamine, all aid in gut repair)

supplement with L-Glutamine, Aloe, and DGL - Metagenics make an excellent product called Glutagenics that contains all three of these in a powdered form. Use 1t of this stirred into about 4 oz of water 3x/day every day for a few months, prior to meals

Avoid coffee and alcohol all together and especially on an empty stomach

Eat a strict paleo diet. Avoid sugar, anything with yeast (vinegars, bread, beer), fungus, mushrooms, grains, dairy, nightshades (avoid anything inflammatory)

thecandidadiet.com forums is an excellent resource:

With elimination of anything you can identify is contributing to it for even just a few weeks, you can almost completely reverse gut health. It may not be 100%, but it gets well on it's way to full recovery. It actually takes much less time than people think to see this shift in a positive direction.
