  • gut healing powder/supplement?

    Howdy ya'll,

    Through furious searching on this very forum, I found a thread where someone recommended a particular powder they took for helping to heal their gut lining, and thus cure their food allergies.

    Of course, I didn't bookmark it, or take note of the powder itself. Can anyone help me out? Or recommend something they used that helped?

    Thanks so much

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

        Glucomannan and/or gelatin?

          I recommend mixing 2 ounces of licorice root with an ounce of yucca root (Yucca schidegra) powders, and ingesting a half teaspoon three times daily at least 20 minutes before meals.

          Both herbs are not only steroidal anti-inflammatories to reduce gut inflammation, but both also strengthen the adrenal glands. The adrenal glands produce the corticosteroids that control inflammation in the body and regulate the immune system to prevent allergic reactions.

          Vitamin C rich foods are also very important as the adrenals require more vitamin C than any other part of the body.

          Avoid stimulants like caffeine as stimulants crash the adrenals making things worse.

            James, are you an herbalist?

            Where can I find these powders? I live in Canada, and ordering online from the US will probably be a pain in the rear.

              I'm interested, but live in the US. Need to get some vitamin C anyway, but can't have fruit right now so I'll have to find a good supplement for it.

                Tasha, I'm honestly starting to wonder if I even have candida or not. I'm eating fruit here and there, and starch. My worst symptoms right now are indigestion. It sounds like all my symptoms go right back to adrenal fatigue.

                  Get yourself tested! Mine is still likely candida, as I'm getting yeast infections on and off when I start introducing sugar of any kind

                      Or get de-glycerized licorice from any vendor of supplements. Worked for me ~15 years ago.

                      Oh, and the reason my gut was messed was from using Ibuprofen. Be careful of any pain relievers (aspirin or NSAIDs), because they really irritate the stomach lining, and then other things like coffee worsen it.

                        See, that doesn't happen to me anymore. I was tested months ago and was positive (February). Not sure how reliable that test was (vega food allergy test).

                        Also, my doc says candida tests are absolutely not reliable.

                            I actually work with a variety of "alternative" medicines, but herbs are one of the primary things I work with. I design formulas, and teach classes on dealing with health holistically as well as take people on herb walks in our local deserts and mountains to show people what they can eat and use for medicine. I was in allopathic medicine for 13 years but left due to the massive corruption and simply the fact that most of the medical system knows virtually nothing about medicine.

                            Canada is a bit of an issue when it comes to herbs and supplements. When I was traveling up there I visited a few health foods stores and the selections were rather limited. Talking to some of the store owners I found that a big issue is that Canada requires supplement labels in French and English, so many manufacturers are not going to hassle with redesigning their labels to fit Canadian regulations. And I have made several shipments of herbs up to Canada, but they keep getting stopped by Canadian Customs, so I don't even try anymore.

                            Still, both herbs are pretty common so your local health food store should carry them or probably have suppliers they can get them from.

                              Natural sources tend to be stronger and more stable that the higher unstable synthetic ascorbic acid. I refer acerola cherry, rosehips or amla berry, which are all also low sugar. I avoid camu camu since it is so unstable.
