Also eggs. Not sure how that one is for PATM.
I think what's obvious now is what seals tight-junctions shut is the optimal thing to do. The more the better. I think the amino-acid degradation; we aren't sure if it applies to us yet.
Anything that shuts tight-junction is good. I've mixed Vitamin-D3 (>4000 IU) as shown by ray2502, 3 strains with maximum teer, zinc and SB with amazing results. Zinc to seal tight junction but I feel slightly funny using it. If it’s OK with you, it’s good. When I took them all together, it was amazing.
Restore will have to be taken alone 6 hours before or later because any product that relies on stomach acid won't work well with restore because Restore is slightly basic (alkaline). This product is great. If you eating a lot of vegetables take restore with it.
Vitamin B2 is very very good but only take it in winter. It makes you hot as hell.
Quercetin is good for the TJ too.
Brown Rice Protein Powder, Desiccated Liver are also good. This is why I'm skeptical that aromatic amino acid degradation applies to us.
All of the above forces the integrity of tight junctions, when taken together it’s a kick. Anything that will seal the gut tight junction is good. When you take them, you can go overdose on many. We should look for more of this. If you feel a slight pain in the gut, there’s one that is not good for you, for me it was the zinc. Remove that. When taken you should feel a relief in your gut.
Anything that opens up tight junctions or harsh on epithelial cells should be avoided. This includes, coffee, alcohol, gluten food, sugar, dairy etc.…any food that is harsh on the gut is likely bad. Just go to google scholar or just ordinary search engines and look up food or medication that seals tight-junction shut. Also look up bad food and medications.
There’s still one I’m waiting for; it’s called “Larazotide”. It’s an engineered 8 amino-acid peptides designed to seal the gut. I want to take it with my existing list. Perhaps it will come during your time at university. Watch out for more products as companies make more in the future. I believe our problems will be treated in the future with some kind of revolutionary product that just shuts up the tight junctions no matter what or just oral enzymes to replace the bad ones. It will be a treatment, meaning we’ll have to take it all the time.
I believe there are still more stuff out that enforces TJ integrity but we still haven’t come across. It’s best when taken together with the others. For instance, it has been proven scientifically that taking certain probiotics together with Vitamin D and Vitamin A really seals up the Gut. Get Vitamin A. Not all vitamins have benefit on TJ so don’t get multivitamins for that purpose, it’s not going to work.
Eating dairy free and gluten free doesn't have to be that difficult. Yes, it is counter to the typical Western diet, but many large grocery stores now have entire isles dedicated to gluten-free and dairy free products. Doing this has helped me immensely, more than probiotics and Restore, honestly. Even if you don't have much money, you can buy certified gluten-free corn tortillas for like less than 1 USD. Many cuisines have dishes that are naturally gluten free, Indian, Mexican, Mediterranean are good places to look. If you get a decent rice cooker, the diet isn't awful. The only time I break this diet is when I get pressured into drinking games and stupid crap like that, which you come to expect as a uni student.
Blueberry powder and activated charcoal are health related products that aid gut permeability. You can make smoothies and slip them in. I like pea protein powder and flax seed in fruit smoothies.
In terms of the vegetarian diet, I'm sure that it has benefits - but I could never commit to that. Nor do I fully commit to the low sugar diet. IMO, you can only cut so much out of your diet so you have to play around and see what works for you. There's a good website channel called Nadia's Healthy Kitchen which has all vegan and gluten-free recipes, mainly desserts. They're pretty quick, I actually used her banana bread recipe today.
If there is one thing not to eat - at least for me - it's dairy. It doesn't have even be straight dairy, I can eat baked products with dairy in them and people with start sniffling and rubbing their noses almost instantly. I'm not sure if its a gut permeability issue, a hormonal issue, or what, but dairy sets off PATM like no other. Some people say you can digest kefir or organic yogurt if dairy doesn't agree with you, but it really doesn't make a difference for me.
I went to the doctor on Saturday and took labs for gluten-allergy, dairy-allergy, and lactose intolerance, so I'm anxiously awaiting those results. IMO, it didn't always used to be like this - I used to eat everything pre-PATM with no trouble. Obviously PATM has made my digestive system incredibly fragile for one reason or another.
BTW, really pay attention to what ray2502 and dontgiveuphope say regarding this topic because they have obviously researched this. I know a lot about asset management and tax policy but I can hardly interpret scientific literature. Good luck at uni, I'm entering my second year.
I would definitely add vitamin d supplements to your diet cause your probably vitamin d deficient due to dairy intolerance. I would have some lab tests run to see where my levels are at. Good luck in school.
Just found out that Capsaicin (chilli) increases gut permeability. That sucks.
Healing the gut it a long process. Have been under glutamine and bone broth for 2 months now. My bloating has reduced though
Dontgiveuphope that would be great as a reference since all of us must be having a leaky gut to a certain extent. Besides food, maybe even some supplements might impair the healing process. I read somewhere that doing a colon hydrotherapy session with baking soda would help. I'll probably try this
"I'm really confused why intestinal permeability is an accepted term in scholarly articles yet doctors don't believe in it. I've read too many instances of doctors saying, "leaky gut isn't real, that's pseudoscience."
Actually intestinal permeability was discovered by the scientific community. All of biology and medicine understand it. Short version is “gut permeability”. It’s sometimes called “leaky gut” but that’s not a formal term. “Leaky gut Syndrome” is different and doesn’t exist.
However, “alternative medicine” and “nutritionists” people, since they’re not real doctors or medicine people because they don’t study chemistry and very little understudying of biology & medicine, have hijacked and coined the term “leaky gut syndrome” purportedly a new condition. They listed a group of symptoms supposedly to be the result of leaky gut and gave it a syndrome name. For instance, suppose one would say if you have a severe headache on the back of your head and feel anxiety and left thumb is throbbing, this means you have leakygut syndrome and here is the cure for it. While it has no proof, it sells and this sometimes angers the medical community…hahaha. I think it’s for two reason, “alternative medicine” people are selling BS and second coz they’re earning big money from it…lol.
If intestinal permeability (leakygut) wasn’t real, it wouldn’t be on academic peer reviewed journal sites, especially medical journals. These journals were made by scientists - doctors, biologist, biochemists, chemists etc. Most of the things I paste are academic peer reviewed journals. The only time I come to the web is to grab some pictures or things that I can’t get on academic journal website.
So if you hear a doctor say he doesn’t believe in leakygut, he’s actually referring to leakygut syndrome. So if we say to a doctor, we’re sick because of leakygut syndrome…those are the things that aren’t well established and in most cases will not believe it or have heard it before.
But if you hear a doctor that doesn’t believe gut permeability happens in real life, punch him in the head and find a real doctor because obviously he didn’t go to medical school at all.
