    Hi all,

    I don't tolerate amino acids very well (CBS mutation) but have tested positive for intestinal permiability. What would you use to heal the gut if you couldn't take glutamine?

    Thanks!

    Have you been reading the Resistant Starch thread? It is long but the first few pages give you the basics.

    Here are some ideas:

    Can you tolerate amino acids in meat? If so, bone broth/gelatin is a natural source of glutamine. You can make your own bone broth: How to make homemade bone broth

    And/or you can also use gelatin from grassfed animals in a pinch: Great Lakes Gelatin (note: the company addresses glutamate concerns here)

    GAPs intro diet short term to starve candida.

    Digestive enzymes with every meal.

    Therapeutic levels of probiotics - check the cooler section of a natural food store and look for something with 50-100 billion active cultures. You can get the probiotics in fermented foods like plain yogurt and kefir (avoid the sweetened kinds), sauerkraut with active cultures (Bubbie's brand - again cooler section and usually only at natural food stores).

    Arabinogalatan powder or capsules (taken with probiotics, it helps feed the good bacteria the probiotic is providing)

    Vitamin C (ideally liposomal for better absorption)

    DGL powder or capsules

    Marshmallow root caps

    Aloe caps

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Vortex,

    No, I got distracted by a Lyme disease diagnosis. I'm going to focus on fighting that before I concentrate on healing my gut further. The next thing I will try will be marshmallow and slippery elm for several months though.

    Wising you the best!

    also, anti-inflammatory type diet
