I started the GAPS diet this morning and was talking about with a friend. He asked a great question: Everyone talks about healing the gut. How do you know if your gut needs healing?
While my friend and I have various medical issues, they aren't digestive problems. I know that Dr. McBride says that some people have leaky gut without constipation or diarrhea. Is there any way to know? Some kind of clinical test?

The latest thought among the Robb Wolf/Mat Lalonde group is that any kind of autoimmune issues and/or metabolic syndrome related issues are ultimately related to dysbiosis/sepsis. That's a whole lot of symptomatic ground, but if your gut comprises at least 75% of your immune system, well, it's probably good policy to start your healing there.
