Would it be advisable to heal a leaky gut with the 'Perfect Health Diet'?

Someone on here recommended it to me, I suffer from a couple of minor food allergies and environmental allergies.

Looks pretty paleo if you ask me, but wouldn't the starches contribute to making the condition worse?

Say if I'm not allergic to starches (I don't think I am) would I still be able to eat them?

Jess, you'll have to perform your own (n=1) experiment. Some paleo folks do fine with what Paul Jaminet refers to as "safe starches" and some people don't. There's a huge amount of trial and error in paleo. Some people have to be very strict (no dairy, no fruit, no grains) and other people don't have problems with the starches and even benefit from them.

The GAPS diet is specifically designed to heal leaky gut. It removes all non-monosacchrides, so the only carbs allowed are very ripe fruit, honey, and nuts/seeds. It focuses on meats, fat, vegetables, with fermented foods or probiotics, and lots of broth.

The Perfect Health Diet is a template which we think is optimal for healthy people and is curative for most diseases but which may need adjustment to the disease. In gut disorders, you typically want to remove allergenic foods (including all common allergens, even if you're not yet sensitive to them) as well as the foods you are most sensitive to. This may require reducing carb consumption or shifting to quickly digested carbs like rice syrup or dextrose powder. You can read our bowel disease category for some curative things you can do.

Best, Paul
