leaky gut

Dr. Stoll,

I've read several quotes from you saying that basically if you have leaky gut problems they will not be resolved unless you learn how to relax. I 've
noticed everytime I notice my stomach it is clenched and tight. If I then consciously relax it have feeling I am going to lose control. I have been
severely constipated since I was 3 years old, I'm 35 now and have been sick for about 14 years. I have so many food allergies I can't count them.
If you now of any techniques or audio tapes that can help get my blood flowing well to my intestines I would be very appreciative.

Thank you,

JMann

P.S. since I posted this a month ago I have been on elaine gottschall's diet and am no longer constipated. Pretty amazing after 32 years. I also bought your book and thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I bought the book you recomended in your book (the relaxation and stress reduction workbook.But I am still interested in finding some good audio tapes if you know of any.
Thank you,
Jo



Only SR will help in the long run. You can help your symtpoms for now by doing the following:

The Atkins center makes a good one called "holosync". This is designed to achive good SR like Walt says.

First and foremost, you should concentrate on the SR (20 minutes 2x a day). I just realized myself how important this is.

Since your problem is caused by chronic bracing, SR is the only permanent way out. It should be noted, however, that bracing causes other problems associated with LGS that you can start to manage now to get some symptom relief while you work on the cause of the problem. LGS, food allergies, and candida (dysbiosis, and malabsorption will be a problem for you right now. The specific Carbohydrate Diet you are following will help with the dysbiosis and malabsorption a bit. The food allergies may be helped by this a little also. Doing the e-diet can be a great help to help you locate and remove your food allergis. After all, Food allergies only worsen LGS. If there are too many to count and you would have to remove every food in your diet, rotate the foods you can tolerate so that you only eat that food once every 4 days. the food allergies will improve with SR and the elimination of LGS/Candida/malabsorption (it's all the same thing really)

For symptom relief right now, you may wish to try the following:

1) anti-fungals for dysbiosis - garlic, caprylic acid, and so on
2) Digestive Enzymes (HCL and plant enzymes) with meals to help with absorption
3) E-diet or food rotation for food allergies. enzymes will help with that

Also, I should tell you that I have been having great sucess with 2 products that you may want to look into. More than 95% of the time, I would say that anything you "take" will not help as much as something that you "do", Like the SR and change in Diet. However, 2 products that I have recently found seem to be the exception to the rule. The first one is called Primal Defense and second one is called Perfect Food.

Perfect Food is, in my opinion, the best green food supplement on the planet. It is a true "whole food" that has not been denatured or changed in any way. It contains the "whole food" including phytochemicals and compunds that science has not even discovered yet. Most importantly, it does not contain vitamin or mineral isolates, no herbs that may be dangerous if taken on a daily basis, and no filler ingredients like FOS or apple fiber. It is 100% green food. All the ingredients are 100% pre-digested and is the only green food product that contains HSO soil organisms which humans consumed in abundance when soils were fertile and clean. These transient probiotics are completely resistant to heat, cold, extremes in ph, stomach acid, and they implant in the intestinal tract regardless of colon condition. They are also highly aggressive against yeast, mold, parasites and fungi. They don't just kill bac bacteria, they change the condition of the colon so that the pathogenic bacteria can no longer survive. You will be doing this with SR on a much more permanent basis but the HSO's can speed things up for you. The product is nutritionally equal to 10 servings of raw vegetables. It is like eating out of your great grandmothers garden. It is truely a fantastic product.

The other is Primal Defense. This is the HSO formuls by itself. It is much more concentrated and delivers 14 strains of completely implantable probiotics to your GI tract. You can read about these products at www.crohns.net. You will also find info on the SCD diet so you see, you are on the right track with that and these can help you along.

I hope this helps.

Rich

Cereal grains are considered very allergenic due to several reasons: gluten, lectins, etc. They also contain antinutrients and must be prepared in a specific way to destroy them. Simple cooking doesn't do the job. You may want to read the following:

And peruse www.westonaprice.org, in its whole.

Congratulations, Jo, on your progress.

Many of those sources are described in the archives about SR. What works is what is important not how much you pay.

Rich,

I've just started reading Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon. I haven't got to the recipes yet, but she has been talking about all the nutrients you get from beef or chicken broth, made with bones. If you include calf or chicken feet, it is also rich in gelatin.

Can you get hold of a copy of her book?

Deb

Oops. I remembered that a bit wrong. The feet need to be added to get silicon. A bone broth has gelatin anyway.



Yes, I can get the book and I will. Thanks nmi
