    I think Richard actually has some pretty sound advice for someone who already has gut issues. One big problem that occurs in leaky gut is SIBO, or bacteria in the small intestine where it is not supposed to be. Starving this out for a short period and realigning the pH of the small intestine sets the stage for future healing. When discussing leaky gut, it's all about crypts and gaps in the large intestine--these can be strengthened and tightened through a diet high in prebiotics, like ginger, onion, garlic, leeks, cold potatoes, green bananas, and legumes.

    well Artour was very clear about no RAW onion, garlic and especially ginger as this is very chemically irritating to the gut. I think he is right.

    Yes, but ginger doesn't do much with bacteria. If anything, it is an anti-bacterial. Ginger just causes your stomach to release more digestive fluids which is helpful in realigning stomach pH for those with low levels of stomach acids.

    Sweet rice flour paste is usually added to help fermentation since it is carb. So I don't think coconut or almond flour are good substitute.
    Rice flour paste is usually used in small amount and most of them are consumed during the fermentation.
    I don't think the rice flour paste is a big issue especially to whom consider rice as safe starch.
    You can still make kimchi without rice flour paste anyway as in PHD recipe.

    However I don't think the regular kimchi is good for leaky gut because of chilli pepper. You might try white kimchi which doesn't have chilli pepper in it.
