Very interesting...Thanks for sharing...it got me ready to research on how to heal the gut. You talk about leaky gut, have you ever tried healing the gut? My husband and I was just talking how can I heal if I have a leaky gut...leaky gut means a weakened immune system....I am gonna have to start to research more on this matter myself...I do know when you have a leaky gut that a portion that is to be digested crosses into the blood which can cause havoc in the body and cause auto-immune diseases. Keep us posted on how you are doing and Good luck!!!
