In Topic: Gut Flora And Leaky Gut. After 5 Years I Finally Found The Root Cause And I...

For those on a diet to heal leaky gut, how long before you saw results? As in, did you stop having breakouts right when you stopped eating food that you were allergic (intolerant) to, or did breakouts continue but took a week or so before they stopped?

Start with just acidophilus, a few million strands (don't go straight into the billions) if you are worried about breaking out from probiotics. If you notice breakouts from acidophilus, you most likely will breakout from every other probiotic on the market because acidophilus is in most probiotics.

I wouldn't recommend fish oil for leaky gut, at least during initial stages.  

I haven't tried l-glutamine, but I tried l-glutathione several times with good results. First you need to go on the leaky gut diet, then start adding probiotics and/or glutathione-boosting supplements. It makes no sense adding too many supplements while you have leaky gut because your body is incapable of fully absorbing and breaking them down anyway. 

Digestive enzymes might be the most useful supplement to begin with because even if you "cheat" on your diet a little bit, they help break down foods and limit food intolerances. You can take digestive enzymes on an empty stomach too, to promote better digestive health and break down any undigested proteins in your GI tract. 

 

Are there any disgestive enzymes you recommend? Not sure if there are different kinds, etc. How often do you take them a day and do you do it after you "cheat" on food?

 

Also, how long into the diet should I go until I start incorporating probiotics and fish oil omega d3? Wouldn't probiotics speed up the healing?

 

Thanks for your help.

Don't have time to read everyone's post but went to natuorpathin doctor and basically need to fix my gut as well. Just wondering, for those who take probiotics or fish oils or even L-glutamine, did you experience breakouts at the start and if so, how long did those last for?

 

So tough to follow a strict diet during the holiday season ....

 

Thanks.


In Topic: Cortisone Shot Caused White Spot?!?

Did a kenalog shot before, a form of cortisone. No whitening. Although I did use hydrocortisone topically and sometimes causes a whitening around the spot, especially if it's on a higher part of the cheek which is more sensitive I guess.


In Topic: Identifying Male Hormonal Acne

Thanks for the replies. The reason I ask is I went to see a naturopathic doctor and she said my acne is from allergies/food sensitivity. So I've been put on a elimination diet but also going to get my blood test. I'm also going to do a hormone test to make sure. I'm just wondering if there is a way at all to tell the difference between what's causing acne when it comes to allergies or hormones.
