We've been learning about detox pathways in the forum lately- teaching ourselves how to heal our IgG allergies (intolerances) "leaky guts" through nutritional support.

  • First thing we learned is that our soil is terrible.  Due to chemical pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers, our soil is becoming more and more depleted. Which leads to our food not having the nutritional value it should have...

Solution: Eat organic whole foods.
( No one said it would be cheap, fast or easy. )

  • Then we learned that our bodies aren't producing enough stomach acid ( The Beet Test- if it's pink, you don't have enough stomach acid), which is interfering with our absorption of nutrients from the food we *do* eat. These partially digested foods cause damage to our guts ("leaky gut") and cause further damage to our intestines, again preventing proper absorption of nutrients.


Solution: increase stomach acidity through increasing consumption of zinc and/or fermented foods (sauerkraut, kefir, kombucha, pickles, etc). Be careful with kombucha- it can have a detox effect which can be very bad if you have mercury fillings or are pregnant/nursing.

  • This lead us to wondering what happened to the partially digested food proteins once they were in our blood (and milk)... Which lead us to finding out they should be getting sent for further processing... Which lead to... You get the picture.

So, we're presently working on how to get rid of the toxins produced by the foods not being broken down properly, as well as the other environmental toxins which (we believe) caused the problems in the first place. I think that about brings us up to speed, yes?

  • Just as an FYI, we receive no compensation for promoting any products, services or businesses.

We only post product which we ourselves would be delighted to purchase for our family. Our opinions are subject to change with you sharing more information, or identifying a preferable resource. We're learning along with everyone here. If someone knows of a higher quality source of whole food, info or service, please let us know! 

  • Therefore, we accept no payment, nor influence for product endorsements.

Additionally, on the Heal Thyself forum, support about your health issues is free for members. We are passionate about healing with whole foods.
