The stomach acid, if strong enough in a healthy person, is meant to break down all proteins into individual amino acids to combine with the blood and nourish our brains and other body cells.
What is a good food for you is very individual. It could be something simple as a food allergy or food intolerance. Some of these suggestions are good ones. I would start a food journal and maybe do some testing or elimination diet for intolerances.
You can also do high dose probiotics and try digestive enzymes. Glutamine in 24 hr homemade bone broths, or supplements, can help heal the gut lining. Also sulfur (in MSM or epsom salts baths).
Vitamin A deficiency can also cause leaky gut.
Would me taking high amounts of Vit D and proabaly nit enough Vit A cause an A deficiency? Time to eat more liver as I have pounds of grass fed liver in the freezer.
Does the bone broth have glutamine, or do I have to add it? I did take a glutamine supplment about 9 months ago, but my newborn son reacted terribly to me taking it.
I so wish I could take probiotics, but my nursing son is highly allergic to probiotics. I am going to trial some pickles I made and see how he does with that.
What can I do about epsom salts if I don't have a bath tub?
I recently made a bone broth that was so gelatanous, that it was even hard to scoup with a spoon, but turned to liquid with heat. Isn't that good for healing the gut?
We are DG, EF, GF, SF, CF, and many, many other things. I felt great after cutting these things out, and about 2 months later, I flet like crap again.
I am trying to juice more, and make more broth. I need to get more greens in me as I stopped green smoothies since I realized I was allergic to bananas and the cold smoothies was making my stomach hurt.
