i had the exact same symptoms twelve years ago.. I went to every kind of doctor you can think of..not a one of them could help me...i couldn't take arthritus med. because of leaky gut. i found what help me with my arthritus was pure unpasturized apple cider vinegar..it isn't expensive, and after about three months of drinking cidar cocktail thirty minutes before each meal, i found my arthritus manageable and my digestion, it helped significantly. the book is entitled "The Miracle of Apple Cidar Vinegar. by Braggs..it may help you also...Note: i couldn't use the honey, because of it's laxitative properties. if you try this, be sure you have apple slice ready to bite into as vinegar is quite strong. i used this method for two years. whenever i didn't take cocktails, my symptoms would return.the remedy i am presently using is call juiceplus. i haven't had symptoms of leaky gut in over a month.
