Ok. I don't want to jinx myself right now but I have been working on my 'Leaky Gut syndrome' for a little under a month now and the results are OUT OF THIS WORLD!
Mind you, it is also summer here in Australia so I have been swimming in the sea and seen far more sunshine on my skin than during the winter months.
But check this out!!
While I have dramatically overhauled my diet, as well as given up cigarettes, alcohol (accept for an occasional smidge of organic red wine), coffee, sugar, grains, and most recently (cow) dairy and minimised red meat. I have to admit I didn't see these real results until I began taking at least two Probiotic's a day and consuming a glass of Digestive Enzymes 20 minutes before my meals.
These are the ones I use:
Probiotics - Well I have recently changed actually, I began by using Wagner Probiotica P3 90, which was great, but after much research on IBS I decided to swap to the strongest probiotic on the market VSL #3. This is a very very strong probiotic with 450 BILLION LACTIC ACID BACTERIA PER SACHET, so I have opted to take it very very slow and take only 1/4 of the sachet two times a day for optimal coverage.
Digestive enzymes - I have been using Lifestream Bowel Biotics + Digestive Enzymes Powder however after having my Gall bladder removed about 6 years ago I have noticed I suffer from lots of oil and mucus in my stool. It appears I no longer break down fats the way I use to. So I am swapping over to one containing high levels of Lipase, the fat specific digestive enzyme.
What is even more amazing is that I am currently at the end of a mild 14 day Liver detox through Natures Sunshine, and I have been seeing millions of these little tomato peel like nasties in the toilet bowl.
I had NO idea what they were, and I also haven't eaten tomato in weeks, so I Googled them and it turns out they are a parasite called Liver Fluke.
This of course got me researching my conditions in relation to parasite toxicity and you won't believe the connections! Looks like it's time for me to step up my detox game and start looking into a total parasite, kidney, liver and candida flush.
What do you think? Have you ever tried a parasite cleanse? Love to hear your thoughts on them. Not sure if it's just a fad or a real thing. Suppose the only way to know for sure is to give it a go myself.
Wish me luck xx
