Jana, I was just about to give up on ever getting better, and then I just read this post. I too have been fighting what I thought was just candida for over six years now---trying everything it seems in the entire world---the whole time on all kinds of strict diets. I can so relate to subcontiously avoiding the leaky gut syndrome stuff. I think I read an article briefly about it years ago and it sounded so depressing and I had every symptom. I have seen probably a hundred articles since then about it, but I haven't read another one. I just ordered the mms today. I'm desperate, but hopeful now. Thank you! and thanks to everyone supporting this forum!
