When I was diagnosed with Leaky Gut, I was told by my doctor to stay off of Nsaids and Antibiotics, unless I truly needed to take them. If I did need to take Antibiotics, I was told to take Probiotics and another supplement called GI Repair. I took both of these for 2 months before I started the Antibiotics.
Anyway, when you have Leaky Gut, particles of food, etc. leak out into your bloodstream and it can cause all kinds of symptoms like joint pain, fatigue, inflammation, etc. The flora in your gut is worn down so it is not able to catch the nutrients from the food you eat, leading that to cause vitamin deficiencies. I actually thought this was what I had until I herxed so bad on Amoxicillian.
