I can understand such peoples' lipids going back up to normal levels gradually as their villus atrophy heals and you get your villi back but why would they skyrocket to FH levels? The reason for that usually has to do with FT3 getting low or... (more)

Due to severe malabsorption (which I am on the path to healing) I need to supplement my vitamins and minerals. I prefer getting my nutrients from my food, but it just isn't possible right now. Are there other avenues for absorption of important... (more)

Using a liposome form of nutrient supplement such as Vitamin C or B will bypass the gut and pass directly into the bloodstream for 98% absorbtion. I use Lypospheric C and B and have found it to be fantastic, as I also have poor gut absorbtion.... (more)

I'm 27 years old and found out I had celiac disease about a month ago. I think I am having a problem digesting fat. It seems like if I eat much more than tablespoon of fat in a meal I get very nauseous for hours after. I'm not sure if this is... (more)

If you are having problems digesting your fat, there are a couple of things that come to mind. (1) You possibly lack enough stomach acid. You can take a Betaine HCl supplement to see if it helps. Please read up on it if you choose this, as it... (more)

I started Paleo a year ago. It fixed a gazillion of health problems for me. But the few remaining problems, while I know how to fix them, they contradict one another. I'm at a loss. Here are the facts: IBS for 10 years, high inflammation all... (more)

I come from IBS-D, SIBO, and anti-biotics, so my gut flora is as bad. I felt better within a few days after going Paleo, but I've heard cases from Cronh's patients who needed 3-6 months before they saw a better day on such a diet. One thing I do... (more)
