Short Summary: Leaky gut for 3 years (thanks to a high dose antibiotic). Symptoms: Constant inflamed/swollen digestive tract, gas-burping-bloating from hell, and constipation.
Testing & trials reveal high IGG allergies to casein, eggs, gluten. Eating those foods cause noticeable worsening on my current symptoms Not eating those foods I still have the above symptoms. My diet is autoimmune paleo -still the same symptoms.
Should be noted that I have seen every kind of doctor and provider and have had all the standard tests and more. I have tried everything under the sun -from autohemotherapy to over $1K in probiotics to acupuncture to every kind of digestive enzyme to iv vitamins. (also including everything on Dr.K's recent leaky gut post except the last option). Not a damn thing has touched this issue.
The common procedure has been to have me avoid those IGG foods while I do mass amounts of treatments (see above) to heal the leaky gut.
A new provider (I know you might guess who it is, but thats not the point here) has suggested that dairy and eggs are necessary to heal the leaky gut and that I had been eating them the wrong way -creating that inflammatory response. By food combining and a few other things, I should heal my gut while overcoming these intolerance's. This provider wants me to limit/expand my diet to: Beef, Broths, dairy, eggs, oj, raw carrots, cooked apples.
What do you think? Should I risk confronting my IGG intolerance's to egg/casein head on? I am super nervous!
Thanks! Note: I have nearly given up on health care professionals so yes, that is why I am asking you guys!!
UPDATE: The eggs had to go after 2 weeks. Serious allergic reaction, despite the food combinations meant to stop that possible reaction. I am still on the raw milk. Still feel moderately better than normal. Month UPDATE: I am still on the raw milk and the rest of the diet as listed above (minus the eggs). I am feeling better than I have in 3 years!
Oct 20 Update: Thanks to some good advice, I found a brand of eggs that doesn't supplement with Soy feed. Worked! Have been eating 2 eggs a day for past 3 weeks with no bad reaction. However the Milk thing was a total bust! I drank grassfed raw milk every day for 2 months and I was experiencing horrible breakouts, GI upset, and weight gain. (Not so from other dairy products). So the Milk is off the menu. (I have even been working with a enzyme therapist, who claims that enzymes can make me digest the milk properly, not so!).
