Leaky Gut Update #11

Well here we are at update 11 of the leaky gut story.. and im still trying to heal from the damage klebsiella have done. For about the last 4 months i developed some kind of histamine intolerence and still to this date I have histamine issues with meat which im still trying to figure out why and how to improve it. After months and months of mainly eating meat it seems my bucket has really quite overflowed.

This for me creates a problem as im unable to have that much meat unless it is very fresh. Another thing showing in my reports is my gut inflammation levels are not going down and still staying similar however food intolerences have improved. I just dont know how to get this histamine under control as its been going for a while. Organic Brown Rice protein powder has been my savour while having issues with meat, as well as lots of vegtables and fruit.

Some say avoid grains if you want the gut to heal..however what do i eat if I cannot have grains or meat, or beans a very limited diet with no options . My meals are mainly based around vegtables, sweetpotato, and ground flax, with some fruits, as well as organic brown rice protein powder at the moment. On occasion breast chicken or turkey depending on toleration.

I also got delivery of the seeking health histamine block, however even taking 2-3 of these tablets still does not help with the meat problem and histamine.. which means my gut in quite a bad shape and still time to go until healing.

Even now i’m feeling grains/nuts are becoming bit hard to tolerate..

Has anyone else been in this same situation?  How do you do a Paleo and low histamine diet? Im barely able to function sometimes on this diet and just cannot believe the complexity again how this is becoming especially considering that the bacteria has been cleared from the last test report.

Next Step to Defeat Klebsiella!

I received a interesting update today from the naturopath I am seeing and was advised the following:

I have just spoken the head of the tech dept. of testing. We reviewed your case together. They say that it is not uncommon to have a lot of trouble clearing the Klebsiella. Their experience is that Golden Seal is the most powerful and the next option is thyme oil. They recommend combining the treatment to make it more effective. The best thyme oil source is Metagenics Parex, which you have now. So I suggest you use both the Parex and the Golden Seal together at the same dose as each was on individually. I also think it may work even better if you stop the EnteroCare while doing this.

I am amazed that this bacteria is so difficult to remove so using Golden Seal and Metagenics Parex will be the next option. Wish me luck.

On another note I came across this today;

“Other Enterobacteriaceae spp such as the Klebsiella, Citrobacter, and Enterobacter include species which are oportunistic pathogens. They may occur at low levels as part of the normal intestinal flora. ¬†However, there is always a susceptible portion of the human population, and ingestion of these organisms may result in illness. Because they mainly cause sporadic illness that are not as easily identifiable as outbreaks, their true incidence of illness remains unrecognised and under-reported.”

Which makes me think why me? I will kill and destroy you Klebsiella and take my life back to normal!

I should have never gone to Fiji, never would have gotten food poisoning, and never issues with this bacteria, its exactly 1 year now, lesson to be learnt, keep your gut healthy.


Leaky Gut – Update #4

Hi All,

As you may have been reading I have been recovering of an infection after an overgrowth of Klebsiella in the gut, causing all kinds of issues.

Im happy to say I am feeling better now with more energy with taking the previous supplements mentioned. I am still yet to take the final 60 tablets of Goldenseal which I will begin. The plan is to use Goldenseal in the morning and afternoon, then have at least 4 hour break and use Probiotics (Metagenics Ultra Flora Restore) after dinner and before bed as well as rest of the supplements in my earlier posts.

Another addition to my supplementation is the addition of Metagenics G-Tox Express for 2 weeks to help with healing the leaky gut after the damage caused, as well as give more energy, as this contains glutamine.

Another thing i forgot to mention is my diet is purely dairy free, soy free, yeast free. I am only eating organic meat, with vegetables and either rice, potato or sweet potato, and rice bread what is on my allowed food list which i do not have any reaction to as well as an occasional piece of fruit. Also lots of seeds, and nuts and oils that i can have at the moment, almonds, pepita seeds, pine nuts, olive oil, coconut oil, grape seed oil etc.

I plan to reintroduce some of the foods in column 1 which i was advised to avoid for 3 months very soon from my ImmuPro 300 test in about 3-4 weeks time while i complete golden seal and gtox express.

After this I will have another stool test to determine if klebsiella is being picked up, and hoping the quantity will be significantly less or completely removed.

This is a very very long process, and I hope no one has to go through this, but at least I am getting somewhere and hoping to make this recovery quick and kick out klebsiella as its a bastard to deal with!!
