Hi Raul
Long time no hear from. I received a message on an email about a 30 day repair for Leaky gut. You might want to check out this site. I like it so well that I may add it to my own home page. This sounds exciting. I really improved on the Ultra Clear, so this might work. Keep us informed on your improvement. Check out this site

Dear Melva,

These are wel known things that have helped many people (temporarily) with LGS. I would not hesitate to try them SO LONG AS THE IMPROVEMENT OF SYMPTOMS DID NOT INTERFERE WITH DEALING WITH THE CAUSES OF THE CONDITION.

Dear Raul,

All of the things you mentioned here should work synergistically--to improve symptoms & actually promote healing--while you are dealing with the basic causes of the LGS.

Thanks for bringing them up.

I would be a little careful with the Chromolyn. Not because it is dangerous--it is uncommonly safe--but because it is so effective in blunting symptoms people frequently think things are better than they are. If one does not deal with the causes (while they are feeling better with the Chromolyn) the problem will eventually come back even while taking it.

Raul and Dr. Stoll:
Thanks for posting the information. I will combine some of these with skilled relaxation and see how it goes with the leaky gut syndrome. I have noticed a slight improvement in being able to do things once in a while, for instance, taking mom to the doctor. These are things that I could not do every day, but, a year ago, I could not have done it at all. I think the green drinks, Spirulina, and liver packs are really helping. Each improvement is one more piece of the MCS puzzle.

Take Care,
Melva

I don't know much about this "leaky gutt" condition; but if you need a solution for this, try a tire patch.

Dear Larry,

I hope you don't have any of the problems associated with LGS. If you do, you have not suffered enough yet & it may be years before you decide to do something more than what I learned in medical school for dealing with the symptoms of the effects of LGS.

Larry,

Obviously you haven't experienced this health condition
and until you do, I would recommend reserving your comments
and saving them for something a little more constructive. I can't imagine that you're so fortunate to have such perfect health.

Hello, having major problems w/ Leaky Gut. Did lactiulous/mannitol test. Much leakage found. Also my doc found an infection in my gut "Klebseilla Pneumoniae", and I'm wondering if this critter could be the cause. Also can you reccomend a good lab for testing food intolerances/allergies both imediate and delayed reaction. Not sure if this is IGa v/s IGg. Also can this illness affect the brain. Have had S.P.E.C.T. scan done and there is a great deal of hypoperfusion. I am am truly in a suffering limbo state. Because of my brain scan, my other doc thinks it could be nuerological Lyme disease. Personally I think my brain reacts to the foods I eat. Is it possible your brain can have an allergic reaction. I'm kind of lost. Further, I'm not too keen on receiving IV/antibiotics especially if my western blotssssss..several...are all borderline.
I would appreciate any help.
Tangentially yours, ANU from NYC.

Dear Anu,

Read "Brain Allergies" by William Philpott, MD. It has just come out as a new edition. You will find yourself in there.

THEN, when you are convinced that the book was written about you, it is time for you to get a copy of MY little 200 page book (link below) so you can begin to appreciate the causes behind this phenomenon.

Those causes explain ALL of the things you mentioned in your note.

Klebsiella can only happen in people with LGS. It does not cause it, it is the result of it. However, once Klebsiella escapes from your control, it makes the preexisting LGS worse.

Once you get the above information under your belt, write again for any questions you might have.

Walt

Dear Laura,

It sounds like you are describing Crohn's or Ulcerative Colitis.

They both are caused by the same causes as is iritable bowel syndrome, chronic colitis and the like. The main thing that makes these causes exhibit themselves as "different" diagnoses is the genetic predispositions of the individual. The approaches to resolution are so similar as to be unimportant to discuss here.

It may well be that your only recourse, now, is to prodceed with more surgery. However, the things I would recommend canot hurt you & at least would prevent your having to jump through these same hoops again.

There are so many resources to help you understand the mechanisms of your condition that now is not the time to throw you into the swamp.

Now is the time to get you started in a simple & comprehensive way so that, with little effort on your part, you can see if you are REALLY ready to learn whether you really want to resolve this or not.

I know that you think, right now, that you are willing to do ANYTHING needed to get healthy. However, there are a lot of people (actually the majority of the population) who would soner die than learn anything new. I know nothing about you but, I would be remiss if I did not mention these statistics. Most of us would sooner throw ourselves on the mercy of the conventional medical monopoly & hope we could pay them enough that they would do our thinking for us.

Of course, we MDs have fostered that kind of thinking for more than 100 years. The current disease-care crisis is the ultimate absurdity of that narrow policy.

At this time (I say this because of my many years of practice & experience), even with the little you have said, you have little energy or patience to learn anything new. If that is the case, perhaps you have to wade through the conventional morass once again & only start learning once you are better--only you know the answer to that.

If you have ANY energy to spare, my first suggestion will be for you to put at the top of your list beginning to become an expert in your own condition. Get a copy of my new book (about 200 pages)(link below) and read it. It was designed precisely for someone like you who probably has suffered enough that they are willing to start learning what this is all about.

THEN, when you have that under your belt, write again right here on the BB so participants can follow your experiences as you get well. Your example can serve as the trigger to get others to realize that they do not have to go through what you are experiencing.

If you learn enough that you are very eager to get this over quickly (6-12 months--depending on your condition & willingness to do what is necessary), you may be interested in my personal Health Coaching service also linked to this page. I prefer doing it publicaly (free) so others might learn how to help themselves. However, by popular demand, I had to offer this alternative.

Dear Sean,

Read a copy of my book (link below) & then ask any questions you might have, right here on the BB, so others might watch you get well & wonder: "Why didn't MY doctor tell me that?"

Your conditions are all related & resolvable. HOWEVER, you are going to have to become the expert in their causes since youyr conventional docs are not trained to think like this. Why do you think they look blank when you come up with something that makes sense?

Walt

Dear Sean,

Contact "Functional Medicine Update" and ask them for a listing of their subscribers, of at least 2 years, who might be in your area. Call (800) 843-9660.

OR, you might call Great Smokies Laboratories, at (800) 522-4762 & ask them for list of physicians in your area who would know enough to order the tests for LGS AND what to do about it.

If it were me, I would then select the names of physicians who appear on BOTH lists.

Let us know what you learn.

Walt



Re:METANEPHRINE???????

Posted by Walt Stoll on December 03, 1997 at 10:56:57:

Dear Linda,

This proof that she has been living with dysautonomia for many years. She now has severe leaky gut syndroms and Candida-Related Syndrome as a result. The metanephrine levels do not go up till the autonomic nervous system is about ready to give up. If she thinks she is sick now---------

YOU cannot resolve this for her any more than I can. SHE has to care enough about herself to do a lot of learning and THEN practice the lifestyle changes needed to resolve this.

Until you know that she is willing to put in this work, we are both wasting our time. Till then, you might open doors for her to learn but SHE has to walk through them. You will just have to love her as she is till then.

If you think she is willing to put ANY effort into getting well, I would first suggest she read my new book (link below). THEN, if she thinks she wants to know more, read a copy of Dr Pelletier's classic "Mind as Healer, Mind as Slayer".
She will see that the latter was written about her. However, she could do better to read mine as an introduction to the latter since it can be too deep without a basic understanding.

If she gets involved, I would be happy to work with her here on the BB. Others would learn a lot about their own conditions by watching her get well.

One thing you will have to be watchful about is that she has had this condition at least since her teenage years. Her entire life has been molded by being sick & others relating to her that way. It will be a big ajustment for her to learn to relate to others as some one healthy. This is a common reason for people NOT wanting to get well.

Dear Bill,

It is tough enough for YOU AND YOUR WIFE to become knowledgable about this. Trying to drag your present intentionally ignorant docs along with you will make resolving this problem just that much more difficult. When LGS has to be presented to the public via Newsweek ( in the absence of the medical profession doing it) personal responsibility is the only current answer.

If I could just spell this out for you I would. However I have learned, from long a painful experience, that this information CANNOT be spoon fed. I can give you the references (or type them all out for you here on the BB) so you can become a student of the condition but I cannot hope to explain it to you. If you want a simple introduction to the condition, and the mechanisms behind it, STILL the best recommendation is for you to read a copy of my new book (link below). It is for stuff like this that I went to the bother & expense of writing it.

If you are still into having someone else do much of your thinking for you, I would suggest you call (800) 522-4762 (Great Smokies Laboratories) & ask them for a listing of the physicians close to you who would know enough to order tests for LGS & parasitosis AND what to do about the results. That would give you someone knowledgable to help guide you through all this.

You would STILL greatly profit by knowing something about it before seeing such a consultant. If s/he is any good, s/he will try to get you to do this learning anyhow.

As you go through this, if either of you come to believe that there is a simple way I could have answered your questions, I would appreciate your sharing it with the rest of us & I will start offering it myself.

candida and natural cure

Posted by T. Atkinson on December 22, 1997 at 09:36:29:

Back in july i was treated for strep throat with amoxicillin
then biaxin. No sucess and no strep after a throat culture.
After my own research I felt I had ebv. titer count 320.
Feeling better after vitamins expecially 8 to 12 grams of ester c. Still not feeling well. Read The Yeast connection
after Dr. Stoll's advise to fine the underlying problem.
I feel I found the problem. Next problem my doctor does not
believe in cebv or candida. "its only a woman problem"
Question, can i treat this problem without a prescription
for nystatin?

Dear T.,

I congratulate you for doing the research needed to get you this far. In my practice I have not seen anyone "cure" candida without something like Nystatin combined with eliminating the reasons for the LGS (which is necessary for anyone to get C-RS).

At least your present doc is admitting that C-RS exists. That admission took 20 years. Perhaps your doc is saying that you have to have a vagina to have recognizable candida. If THAT is what s/he means, s/he is too primitive for you to continue paying for poor advice. If s/he is actually aware of the systemic effects of C-RS, s/he is probably salvagable.

There are several ways for you to find a knowledgable (about C-RS) physician in your area. All are listed in the back of my book in the resources section: ask your librarian to find you a copy of "The Yeast Syndrome" by John Trowbridge, MD (listed in the back are many US physicians who knew about this 10 years ago); Call (901) 427-8100 & ask for a listing of docs in your area who would know about C-RS; Call (800) 522-4762 and ask them for a listing of docs in your area who would know enough to diagnose & treat C-RS.

In the meantime, the more you know, the better you will be able to judge ANY doc you might see. My book would be a good place to gain that knowledge base (link below).

My wife is currently dealing with C-RS and I have no doubt that I too have C-RS, but to a lesser extent. Fortunately we have a doctor who recognizes and treats this, so we have access to nystatin.

However, we have both found that a whole food diet will go along way to reducing the symptoms. I am suggesting this as a step in the right direction until you can enlighten your present doctor or find another one.

Good Luck

Peter

Is there anything I can do (naturally) to treat what I believe to be "leaky gut" syndrome while pregnant? I.e, is it safe to take any of the food supplements that I've read to be effective (NAG, glutamine,etc.) or is there a safer way to get them directly from food sources?

I'd appreciate any info. you can give (while I wait for your book to arrive!).

What about colloidial silver?, it is supposed especially for candida, to be highly effective, with no side effects, or toxcicity, compared to nystatin, an antibiotic. Colloidial Silver, was in great use untilthe advent of antibiotics. Colloidial Silver can even purify septage!
Colloidial Silver interfers with enzymec reactions, that nourish the disease bacteria, or virus, not attacking the virus, or bacteria, directly, so no resistance is made by the pathogn.

Get the workbook recommended on the homepage of this site (link on this page) under "Skilled Relaxation" & get started. This will help you with your labor & delivery as well AND be the main thing that finally reverses the LGS.

Dear Alex,

I have a big file on Colloidal Silver but have never, yet, recommended it to anyone. I am concerned about the long term effects. If you look back 80 years, you will see a lot of research showing those effects.

I have found promoting wellness more effective, less expensive and a lot safer than depending on taking anything.

There is NO DOUBT that it can be effective in the short run for many conditions not well addressed by conventional medicine.

Hi, Scott.

Happy New Year to you too!

My references say that Acupuncture has been around for about 5000 years. The best reference I know that puts Acupuncture in perspective with all the other "Energy Medicine" modalities is "Vibrational Medicine" by Richard Gerber, MD. It has just come out with an updated edition (1996) so any bookstore & library can get you a copy.

Acpuncture would probably help. If you had it done by a Chinese Medical Practitioner, s/he would probably have other good suggestions to work with all that we have discussed.

Don't stop trying to find the right relaxation technique for you since this is the KEY thing for you.

Blastocystis Hominis is only difficult to resolve if the person still has the LGS that makes him suscpetible to ANY parasitic organism in the gut. I would not put a lot of effort into this guy until I had my LGS resolved.

Please share what you learn with the BB since this is the medicine of the 21st century.

Walt

Anu, I'm a latecomer to the BB. Hope you see this. My husband suffers from brain allergies and, I'm convinced, LGS and candidiasis. For the first 10 years of our marriage, I feared he was a borderline schizophrenic. His symptoms are scary and sometimes debilitating. We're still looking for a doctor who is knowledgeable about treating this kind of thing. Good luck to you.
