I have problems with low thyroid and low adrenal function not to mention possible Candida issues due to my super slow metabolsim. The Candida or possible parasite infection gave me a Leaky Gut. After meals I get bloated and brain fog. My question to you is does Leaky Gut cause un digested food particles to enter the blood stream and does the body use antibodies to attack these undigested food particles?
Yes and yes. Leaky gut results from inflammation of the intestine, which increases its permeability. Partially digested proteins, dissolved in solution, can enter the bloodstream where they act as antigens. This can also lead to allergic reactions putting further stress on the adrenals. And yes, antibodies will be formed to these foreign proteins. But the antibodies are very unlikely to tag the adrenals or thyroid. Antibodies are generally pretty specific to their target. Although weak adrenal glands can lead to the overproduction of low affinity (nonspecific) antibodies that can tag other antigens or even healthy tissues for destruction. This is what happens in autoimmune conditions. But in order for these antibodies to tag either the thyroid or the adrenals the foreign proteins would have to have a considerable likeness to the proteins of your glands.
But again the stress on the adrenal glands can weaken the adrenals, which in turn can cause thyroid issues.
If so could these antibodies also attack my thyroid and my adrenal glands causing them to function less and less? Am I way off base assuming these things?
Again it is extremely unlikely that the antibodies are tagging your glands.
I was going to start a Vigin Coconut Oil detox tomorrow for 3 days which I am using to kill Candida, help with an viruses like herpes (I have the kind on the lip) and help with my Hypothyroidism.
After the VCO detox I'm going to fast for 3 days eating only Slippery Elm gruel to help with the Leaky Gut.
What do you think about doing this for the reasons I explained about?
Leaky gut has been linked to low intestinal flora, which leads to less intestinal acids to control the Candida. In turn this leads to intestinal inflammation, which increases permeability. I think you would be a lot better off with kefir and insoluble fibers to get the Candida under control. Licorice root and yucca root are also recommended as they help build up the flora, kill Candida, build up the adrenals, reduce intestinal inflammation and boost the immune system.
If you did have an autoimmune condition then the slippery elm would not be a good idea. Rich polysaccharide sources such as slippery elm, marshmallow root, echinacea, aloe, etc. can aggravate autoimmune disorders by stimulating white blood cell activity. White blood cells attack antigens tagged by antibodies.
The VCO to clear out the gut and the Slippery Elm gruel to heal it and then go from there w/ Iodine/Coconut Oil and Vitamin C/Pantothenic Acid for the Thyroid/Adrenals.
