So I came across some info about "Leaky Gut Syndrome," and specifically, Candida overgrowth in the intestines. I did a search here and couldn't find any posts on this topic. I bring it up because supposedly leaky gut, caused by Candida (yeast) can be linked to all sorts of chronic medical conditions including Crohn's.

Has anyone ever gone to a homeopath/ holistic doctor and done testing for leaky gut/Candida?

Taking Flagyll right now. Not many of these drugs seem to agree with me. Can't take Prednisone/steroids because they jack up my bloodsugars. I have no desire to try IV drugs for Crohn's.

I just drink green tea all day it kills yeast not the bottled kind fresh brewed.

And this has cured your Crohns? You went to a homeopath and this is what they recommended? Never heard of green tea killing yeast before...

Hi there,
 
I think Sugarmarie was saying that the green tea got rid of the yeast . . . not her Crohn's
I don't know a thing about leaky gut . . . but I inserted "leaky gut chron's yeast" in the "search site" window at the top of this page and found all these links:
 
 
I hope this helps!!
 
Blessings!
