Leaky Gut

Postby rbain » Sun May 05, 2013 8:56 pm

Hi my first post, I have been ghosting this board since late Feb this year.
I was confirmed RRMS in early Feb and my Neuro has me on Gilenya, which I am reluctant to take, but I dont want any more flare ups, Consulted with Dr Thibault in March to get me started on the Antibiotic protocol.
I have been trying to get a few issues under better control before I start, my diet was the first, which is now sorted the second I need some help with is my yeast infection/leaky gut.
Is it best to get this yeast infection under control before I start the Antibiotic protocol?

you don't get the side effects associated with intestinal permeability any more. you can also test for changes in food sensitivities (IgG antibodies.. I have not had this done but my relative did before and after zinc therapy.. a whole array of food sensitivities vanished)

If you have a leaky gut it is best to stop eating gluten and dairy. These have been linked to MS through a leaky gut. You can repair your gut by probiotics and a appropriate diet. Don't rely on the doctors to solve this problem. Get the information on line and take control of your health. The information is out there. You just have to do it.

that would be b/c gluten and dairy both deplete zinc. serum zinc goes up when you quit gluten for sure and I suspect quitting dairy would have the same effect. but you don't necessarily know by how much, or if it's enough. testing can help you decide if therapeutic supplements are in order.
