I also did alot of research about the Leaky Gut syndrome, and it turns out that there is a high correlation between candida overgrowth and leaky gut....perhaps you have received candida first, and then it led to a leaky gut? Nobody knows, but what we are absolutely certain of is that diet can definitely help.
I am always very much aware of the mytummytantrum.com, where I really admire the man who had hosted the website; he, in my opinion, was one of the very few pioneers of the roots of our problem.
However, I am skeptical about his method of that test for leaky gut. I am not saying that leaky gut doesnt exist, or we do not suffer from leaky gut, but I simply do not think that that test indicates that we have leaky gut.
Regardless, I have a tremendous amount of respect for him. According to his instagram, he is now setting up a business in Australia precisely about this problem. Kudos to him; I will donate to him soon when I find a job.
Where did you test for TMAU by the way, in mebo? I am trying to find a place where I can test if I have TMAU, and mebo test is currently unavailable. Do you know of a place where it sends out test kits internationally?
