How to heal a leaky gut

A leaky gut often means you need to heal something else first. That said, the abnormally permeable intestinal lining participates in a vicious cycle, and needs to be addressed directly as well.

Ask your healthcare practitioner if a leaky gut test (available from Genova diagnostics) might be appropriate for you. I have found these to be useful in some situations, but since the condition can be transient and episodic (as with histamine sensitivity, binge drinking, and bouts of stress), the test can miss it. Often, clinical history and presentation is enough to go on.

RepairVite™ Diet

repairviteTake a deep breath, because if you're a foodie like me, this is the part that is going to suck. I'll go ahead and be Bad News Bear because as science shows, the worst offenders that your immune system probably has red flags about are your very favorites. Below is a quick summary of what to eat and what not to eat!






  • Sugars: including corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, molasses, honey, chocolate, candy, etc.
  • High Glycemic Fruits: including watermelon, mango, pineapple, raisins, and canned fruits.
  • Grains: including gluten, wheat, oats, rice, barley, buckwheat, soy, corn, wheat germ, spelt, amaranth, kamut, millet, quinoa, etc.
  • Gluten-containing compounds: including processed salad dressings, ketchup, soy sauce, barbecue sauces, condiments, modified food starch, etc.
  • Dairy: including milk, whey, eggs, cheeses, creams, mayonnaise, etc.
  • Soy: including soy milk, soy sauce, soy protein, etc.
  • Alcohol: including beer, wine, sake, cognac, liqueurs, etc.
  • Lectins: including nuts, beans, soy, potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, peanut oil, soy oil, etc.
  • Coffee, Processed Foods, Canned Foods

    Make sure you eat:

    • LOTS of Vegetables: including asparagus, spinach, lettuce, broccoli, beets, cauliflower, carrots, celery, artichokes, garlic, onions, zucchini, squash, rhubarb, cucumbers, turnips, watercress, etc. No tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, and mushrooms.
    • Low Glycemic Fruits: apricots, plums, apples, peaches, pears, cherries, berries, etc.
    • Meats: including fish*, chicken, beef, lamb, organ meats, etc.
    • Bone broths: ­ these have strong healing super­powers, they are full of collagen and minerals and other nutrients that give your gut what it needs to heal. 
    • Fermented Foods: including sauerkraut, kimchi, pickled ginger, mixed pickle, coconut yogurt, kombucha tea, etc.
    • Enough good fats: including coconut oil, coconut butter, coconut milk, olives, olive oil, nut butters and sun butter are OK just not actual nuts.
    • Stay Hydrated: water and herbal teas. Look for  herbal teas with calendula, marshmallow and gotu kola, and extracts of licorice. They can be used to support the intestinal mucosa. Caffeinated tea is ok in moderation.

    If you are allergic to any foods, inform your healthcare practitioner and avoid using those foods during this program.

    *Select fish which is less prone to heavy metal contamination.

      Got Sick - Respiratory Specific
      Catherine - San Francisco
      Extra-Level Respiratory Support

      Nourishing Lung tincture has been our go-to during the now-annual fire season, reducing the impacts of smoke & polluted air, and for providing overall respiratory support.
      Got Sick-Respiratory Specific is a great addition for the onset of URIs and other respiratory distress, as it seems to act rapidly and deeply. It's also very effective in combination with Nourishing Lung. My husband was developing a URI following surgery, and before calling the Dr for antibiotics, he opted to try using both tinctures, together with Got Sick regular formula. Significant improvement occurred within 12 hours and he was able to clear it without medication. Highest recommendation.

      Thank you for letting us know how these worked for you!

      Like the ease of the capsules. Also use the powder. Excellent way to add fiber and help digestive track. Definitely use it daily.

      Intolerance Complex

      Intolerance Complex

      Helps some when eating dairy or gluten on a occasional basis. Have purchased several bottles over the past few years.

      Life saver!

      Recommended to me by 2 Naturopaths. this product has helped me out of SIBO issues and also maintained my body's natural gastric process.
      Whenever I have a flare up of digestive problems, this product, in combination with garlic and probiotics has helped me restore things without the torment of antibiotics, which destroy your gut lining. I highly recommend staying on an assigned regiment of Candibactin BR for a cure.
