My Functional medicine LLMD Dr wrote a book on gut health / immune relation. His protocol was pretty much adopted by functional medicine as the gut healing standard today.
Not like you need a book though LOL..
He puts everyone on this before ABX.
Not my "home brewed" imagination, this is the real deal:
Eliminate junk food, no: alcohol, sugar, wheat. Then go on elimination diet to figure of what your sensative to. Eliminate things that make you gassy/belch too. YOU and only you can figure this out.
Eat said diet. include:
-good probiotics like LVS 3. not cheap ones, not yeast either
L-glutamine powder or multiple capsules- heals the gut walls.
use digestive enzymes, cheap ones work too
good "greens" powder mix 2x day- google
Igg powder (forgot the details), hard to find and expensive
colostrum if no intolerance to it (first cows milk)
three months minimum.
My gut was pretty bad.
I no longer use the above stuff today, just eat a diet which is clean for me.
Had initial lyme symptoms late 80's, then again w/with bullseye early 90's. Ended ABX for Lyme in 2015. Rebuilding / repairing / fine tuning since then; member "10 Percenters Lyme Club". What an adventure this has been. Did I mention Hashimoto sucks?
