Usually fatty liver preceds T2 diabetes and metabolic derangement. However, taht doesn't mean you will go from fatty liver to T2 or to other diseases. You can stop it right there if your metabolism isn't damaged enough. How elevated are your... (more)

It it my understanding that you should probably severely cut starches to starve off bad bacteria (see FODMAPS), increase stomach acid to improve digestive efficiency (through apple cider vinegar or Betaine Hcl), and eat fermented foods/probiotics.... (more)

GAPS is among the best ways to heal leaky gut - www.gaps.me - GAPS adds a "process" for healing that Paleo is missing (just skip the peanuts). But most need more than just diet to heal from the autoimmune diseases that result from leaky gut. These... (more)

The problem is the glycoalkaloids in the skin, they are toxic and cause irritation of hte GI tract, so if you are eating white potatoes you should probably peel them. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glycoalkaloid (more)

Vinegar does not kill bacteria, fungi or parasites inside your intestine. Vinegar helps with digestion, in particular makes it easy to break down starch and carbs. It also has many good micro-nutriments. You don't need to gargle after... (more)

So I see this on here all the time about what "causes" a leaky gut or how to "fix" a leaky gut, but what IS a leaky gut? What are the symptoms (in layman speak) of a leaky gut? How do you know you have a leaky gut?
