Yes, seems the reading I have done in the past intimated there is no good science behind the "leaky gut" theory. Or at least that is the impression I got. Which goes against my own experience and gut feelings. IE sometimes I feel like I have been poisoned I am so weak and brain fogged, and feel like I am getting a bed soar if I don't reposition myself every 5 minutes. Can't sit at a computer for more than 5 minutes without getting a "bed sore". The pain migrates to my hip joints and makes me feel like I am going to need a hip replacement every time I move the joint. At least until I stop and put the pressure somewhere else like when I try to use my computer in bed. Than it migrates to my back and scalp. My scalp hurts if I lay my head on a pillow in the same position for too long. My upper spine hurts so bad sometimes I think I am going into heart failure. Pain under the right rib usually after meals. Just to name a few. Too many others to list. Just like would be the case if someone were "really" poisoned.The essence of it:
"A new study may explain why people who do not have celiac disease or wheat allergy nevertheless experience a variety of gastrointestinal and extra-intestinal symptoms after ingesting wheat and related cereals. The findings suggest that these individuals have a weakened intestinal barrier, which leads to a body-wide inflammatory immune response."
