Leaky gut syndrome aka intestinal permeability

Postby NHE » Thu Aug 01, 2013 9:19 pm

Leaky Gut and an Immune System Run Amok

The People's Pharmacy recently interviewed a mother of a three your old son who was diagnosed with juvenile idiopathic arthritis. The doctors had put her son on methotrexate, but the side effects were too much especially for a three year old. Instead, she tried treating him for leaky gut syndrome (intestinal permeability) using diet and supplements. After some time, her son, who had needed help getting out of bed due to pain in his joints, was up and running around again.

The interview will be freely available for about the next 3 weeks.

In addition, I recommend reading the book, Wheat Belly by Dr. William Davis. And at the very least invest 55 minutes in watching this presentation here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47QlothkpsE

Currently, I believe that this is our problem… and our solution. Investigate Intestinal Permeability (A.K.A. Leaky Gut Syndrome) and Celiac Disease – symptoms are all-too-familiar.

About 30 minutes in, he even mentions naltrexone (which many here, including me, have tried). Dr. Davis also mentions Naltrexone in his book on pages 51 and 203.

My hypothesis: excess insulin (hyperinsulinemia) plays a major role in MS, as developed in my initial post: http://www.thisisms.com/forum/general-discussion-f1/topic1878.html "Insulin – Could This Be the Key?"

I have posted this in another thread, but I think that it should be here also:

I am an avid viewer of The Dr. Oz Show and found yesterday's program on gluten sensitivity very interesting; maybe you saw this, too: http://www.doctoroz.com/episode/gluten- ... t-epidemic

@4:00 Dr. Amy Myers, M.D., speaks on the new warning signs of gluten sensitivity: headaches, migraines, inflammation causing brain fog, depression from nutrient deficiencies (zinc, iron, B vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D), joint pain & arthritis, skin rashes – many more symptoms than just in the gut

@4:30 she says more than 18 million have been diagnosed with gluten sensitivity; suspects that 1 in 2 probably has gluten sensitivity

@5:00 mention of study in New England Journal of Medicine several years ago that linked gluten sensitivity to 55 diseases

Recent study showed that 56% of people with migraines had gluten sensitivity; gluten-free diet resolved the migraine problem.

The use of the following nutrients (zinc, iron, B vitamins, omega-3's, and vitamin D mentioned in the above video) is also encouraged by Jimmylegs.

Postings pertinent to this topic have been here at ThisIsMS for a LONG time. Here are just two. How can we round them up and put them in one place? Where is the most logical place? Is this topic deserving of its own "Forum" heading?


General Discussion forum in 2006, topic: "Family/Celiac/multiple sclerosis:
general-discussion-f1/topic2316.html

General Discussion forum in February 2005, topic: "Zonulin, intestinal permeability and MS":

I still think it would be nice to have a Celiac Disease/MS subforum under the Treatment forum or perhaps a "sticky" under Diet at ThisIsMS – some place that would be convenient for collecting related info and websites, such as:

On Fox News, Carol Alt interviews Jennifer Esposito and her doctor, Patrick M. Fratellone, MD: http://video.foxnews.com/v/273978557800 ... gluten400/

According to Esposito, gluten is found in toothpaste, charcoal, drug fillers, soups, gravy, teabags!

More good information on gluten sensitivity/celiac disease:

"Prevalence of celiac disease in multiple sclerosis." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed?term=21385364


"Gluten causes gastrointestinal symptoms in subjects without celiac disease" http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed?term=21224837



Lots of good reading from the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University Medical Center
http://sklad.cumc.columbia.edu/celiacdi ... lications/

which list includes the following article, "Anti-Borrelia burgdorferi antibody profile in post Lyme disease" which may hold particular interest for some here.



Multiple sclerosis is on this list along with the statement, "Those with an autoimmune disorder are prone to get other autoimmune disorders…":

I think this belongs here also:

Dietary magnesium is absorbed in the small intestine, the same area affected by gluten in those with celiac disease.

And from a 1968 article! Almost 40 years old!… And they are still charging for this!

Magnesium Metabolism, a study published in the New England Journal Of Medicine, March 28, 1968 (http://www.nejm.org/doi/pdf/10.1056/NEJM196803282781306) found a "striking magnesium loss" in the stools of those with untreated celiac disease—up to four times as high as dietary Mg intake. That same study found that "this remarkable loss was reversed by the institution of a gluten-free diet."
