If so, what did you do? How did you determine your gut was healed? Were you able to clear up any of your food intolerances? How long did it take?
I have read several of the old threads on healing the gut protocols, but would love to hear of some success stories.
My gut has been damaged from years of undiagnosed low hydrochloric acid, candida (which was diagnosed, but I couldn't ever completely tame because of the lack of stomach acid), and multiple food intolerances. I am feeling more and more desperate as I seem to lose more foods I can tolerate, especially vegetables. I am very limited in what I can eat at this point.
I just did the Metametrix GI effects test, and am waiting on results. I have been taking glutamine, slippery elm, and marshmallow root for a few months, and more recently just added gamma oryzanol. I take a lot of probiotics. I was drinking goat kefir, but my doctor suggested I should avoid it for a while to see if it helps with gut healing, or to see if it was contributing to a lingering candida problem because of the natural sugars in the milk. (I do think that the hydrochloric acid with betaine that I take has really helped to get rid of the majority of my candida. My symptoms are finally gone after many years.) I recently started applying glutathione cream (I have autoimmune issues also). I'm also drinking bone broth daily, or almost daily.
My kids also have food intolerances, and I'm working on healing them too.
Thanks for sharing!
