    Are you healed or healing? What does your body ask for? I hope not Twinkies.

    My health improved a lot.

    My body can ask for anything. Might be fat, meat, eggs, patatoes, bread, sugar, cheese, snacks, sweets, etc.

    I think that diet may be one area where listening to the body should not be absolute. Addicts' bodies demand the drugs of addiction. It also seems to be common for the body to demand foods to which it is intolerant. One of those perverse, counter-intuitive things.

    It works for me. I do not say others should do it too.

    I'm very sorry to hear that things are not going well for you.

    There seems to be good evidence that autoimmunity arising from a leaky gut can affect any part of the body, depending on what antibodies are produced, which will probably depend on what antigens are getting into the bloodstream from the gut.

    However, the blood-brain barrier is another biological barrier whose breach can allow inappropriate substances through and thereby lead to disease. This could occur due to infection, physical injury or other factors.

    There is some info about encephalitis here.

    You are a lucky chap then. Me, having a raging leaky gut that often hurts making obvious its pressence can not eat everything I want.
