Ok, if you're so allergic to all these things, this tells me (as you have discovered) that your gut is very leaky and with the wrong bacteria. For people with so many allergic reactions, I'd think (I'm not a doctor btw, I just have personal... (more)

I would take colostrum because of the amount of IgA, PrP's and other constituents that help heal the gut! The colostrum that has done research and has been written up in an editorial is Immune Tree.

Studies show that any PUFA (both omega 6 and omega 3) increase intestinal permeability while saturated fat reduces it. I believe the success of paleo diet for leaky and food allergies is not in improving the ratio of the two fatty acids, but... (more)

I've started to grind my own cashew "flour" as we are trying to avoid almonds too. And I'm finding that chia egg is way better than flax egg for a replacer. I bought a grinder just for chia seeds. Its working really well in baked goods.
