Re: help! how do you know if you have leaky gut syndrome?
pretty good article...I wonder how many people read it and can say
"no, I definitely don't have it".
a question: it's said therein that people with leaky gut can "help themselves" by eating smaller and more meals than three a day. How would this help the L.G.?
I can see it as a general help, but...
Interesting to me especially is the connection of vasculitits to leaky gut. A few years ago I developed a strange 'symptom' of feeling as if my veins (especially in hands)were sort of tingling. Rushing. And almost like a feathery feeling. I tried to talk to a regular MD about this, and was sort of looked at askance..and told simply I was aging. (45 at the time)
I also seem to have developed more veins (or they are visible now), especially noticeable in my hands. I often raise them above my head to 'shake them out'. It's a weirdly uncomfortable feeling, as if they are 'full';they are certainly bigger.
This doesn't bother me all the time, but probably goes in cycles. Worse one day, better the next...
At the time (when I saw the MD) I mentioned vasculitis, wonderd if I had it, having just read about it, but that was shrugged off, and I didn't understand then the connection between vasculitis and leaky gut.
hhm. very interesting.
As for the possible setup to this situation, two and a half weeks of killer strength Antibiotics
(and other drugs to manage the side-effects) that made me wish I *was* dead, when suffering with meningeoccal pneumonia after a plane trip
could have well tipped the balance, I'm guessing.
