These steps are from Sherry Rogers book "Pain Free in 6 Weeks..." on PG 93 Please get this book and read it! It is STILL my FAVORITE book with absolutely the BEST information on Lupus and other autoimmune diseases and LOTS of other diseases too! You can get it to read, free, from your local library! She goes on to explain in detail how to repair your leaky gut! It is one of the few books that I own and I would buy extra copies to give to all my friends and family too! In her practice Sherry Rogers has reversed Lupus many times over!
1) Recognize or diagnose leaky gut is present. There is an Intestinal Permeability Test that your doctor can order.(or you can just start treatment)
2)Remove the cause of the leaky gut. Find out if unwanted bugs like Candida are lurking, or if you have poor digestive enzymes, abnormal bacteria etc. A "Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis"(CDSA) will tell you this.
3)Re-inoculate the gut by putting good bugs back by using probiotics.
4)Repace Enzymes with digestive enzymes.
5) Recall the total load and if you have chemical sensitivity. Decrease toxins in your life home and at work and toiletries.
6)Repair the damaged gut with nutrients like L-Glutamine.
7) Restore function increase fiber,chew thoroughly,replace digestive enzymes.
8) Repent and rectify the causes. Get rid of sugar, and refined and processed foods,get rid of junk foods, do not use NSAIDS and other damaging medications, alcohol, sweets, caffeine and soda!
