Everything Nori says, plus fermented foods, especially vegetables. The gut microbiota plays a role in the permeability of the intestinal tract, and it's looking like foods may have more of a beneficial impact than probiotic supplements. However, the jury is still out, so I'd keep all bases covered.
Has anyone ever tried seed cycling? It's meant to be a way to balance your hormones using different seed throughout your menstrual cycle (first half: flax & pumpkin; second half: sunflower & sesame). I am interested in trying it and would like to know if anyone has seen any results.
The 4R protocol, introduced by Jeffrey Bland, PhD, includes Remove, Repair, Replace, and Reinoculate. I think the biggest R is Remove. You are doing a lot but perhaps you have not been able to identify and remove what continues to irritate your gut. Have you had an allergy testing done? Have your practitioners ruled out parasites, occult bacteria, yeast overgrowth, etc.?
Also, an important factor is stress, which can erode the SIgA lining the gut and contribute to more permeability.
Repair takes time and patience. Some things I like to consider to help are: L-glutamine, bone broth, white mushrooms, adaptogens, S. boulardii.

I have heard that most women don't metabolize caffeine well and could potentially build up in tissues causing general fatigue and fibromyalgia type symptoms. Does any one know this to be true?

Good question! I would suggest that if her daughter misses mom's milk, then mom might make one of the two versions of homemade formula found in the book NOURISHING TRADITIONS (and probably also at www.westonaprice.org).
The book BABY-LED WEANING could also be helpful to cut down on all that work to puree food for her little one.
Importantly the E4H model is easily adapted to the tastebuds of babes, which will avert allergies (court variety) and picky-eaterness. I encourage moms to try organ meats and bone broths now when there is no prejudice affecting willingness to try.

Does anyone have the antidote for Leaky Gut; I have been battling this problem for several years now, and have worked with many different professionals
Currently taking several pro-biotics, including Wobaenzyme; colostrum; Renew Life Intestinal powder, Ultra InFlamX powder; and several other supportive type supplement(s).
If anyone has any advice to share it would be very much appreciated.
I often hear conflicting foods to exclude/exclude in the diet and am wondering if perhaps this is why I am still having trouble with this chronic inflammatory dysdiosis.

Are you tired of having back or joint pain? You can learn how to be free of pain! Learning what is the underlying cause of your pain will enable you to make changes that eliminate your pain. Almost everyone in highly industrialized countries has adopted a modern posture that is misaligned and so pervasive we can't even see it. Many treatments don't address the underlying cause of pain.
Learning a set of simple, specific guidelines can bring you relief from pain anytime, anywhere. The same guidelines that take away your pain also straighten your spine.
Come to a 2 hour Balance Method workshop - "The 3 Myths That are Causing Your Back Pain".
IN PETALUMA: Thursday, November 13, 12-2 pm OR
Tuesday, November 18 , 2014, 7:15-9:15 pm. No charge.
RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED. Seating is limited. To register, call 707-278-8718 or visit www.sonomabodybalance.com
Why do people in some countries have no back pain? 80% of the population in the United States suffers from back pain, compared to only 5% in many other countries, such as Portugal and Greece. These healthy people move slightly differently than we do. The teaching of the Balance Center is based on more than 40 years of research on these healthy populations. When you stand, bend, sit, walk, and sleep as these people do, your pain can be significantly reduced or eliminated.
SIX WAYS THIS APPROACH IS UNIQUE:
-Balance is based on studying healthy people
-No special devices, special equipment or special chairs are needed
-No exercises or radical positions are required
-Balance dramatically improves your posture
-You use this information immediately in your car, at work, even at the
-A slight shift in position brings relief
WHAT DO PEOPLE SAY ABOUT THE RESULTS OF BALANCE?
“I have successfully used Balance Center instructions as part of a comprehensive treatment program for my patients with painful spinal conditions.”
- William Firtch, M.D.
"This class was a revelation for me. It increased my awareness of being out of Balance and I learned simple changes I can make to become more balanced and pain free. It was powerful learning what I can do on a daily basis to avoid pain. Dana taught us simple techniques to use everyday to correct bad posture and live pain free. It’s given me hope and has been a life changing experience that has put me back in control ."
- Julie Shapiro, Oakland, CA
"For 17 years I spent thousands of dollars for medical treatment and loss of work time to find a solution to relieve lower back pain due to an auto accident. I sought treatment using acupuncture, acupressure, massage therapy, osteopathic and more. These treatments were helpful for a short time, but it did not teach me the proper body mechanics for lifelong relief. Surgery and continuous use of drugs was not a viable option. The classes I took from Dana at Sonoma Body Balance were my saving grace. I learned how to properly sit, sleep, walk, drive, bend, lift, etc. I have not experienced any back pain since completing the classes."
- Wayland Lew
"Before I took the Balance class, I experienced chronic neck, low back, hip, and gluteal tension, in spite of the fact that I received weekly chiropractic adjustments. While taking the class, my tension decreased significantly. The tools I learned in the class also enabled me to teach basic sitting skills to patients which helped eliminate a major cause of recurring back pain for many of them."
-Jay Bunker, Chiropractor

I've attached a must-see research article involving glyphosate, hard water, and kidney disease. This is in humans. I also have information regarding glyphosate and what its presence does to beneficial microbes. And I have the original Seralini study on rats fed GM maize and then went on to develop lots of tumors. This is the famous study that's been pulled from its online sources, as it proved too controversial for the powers that be. The authors were accused of all kinds of methodological flaws, but they still stand behind the validity of their findings, as they point out in a separate article that forms a response to their critics, which I also have. So, let me know if you'd like any of this information.

Thank you both very much for your information. This is a subject that came up while having dinner with two friends of mine who are both doctors and much to my surprise, did not know too much about GMO foods.
To better inform myself and help spread the word, I thought I would do my first handout assignment on GMO foods and reach out on this forum.
I really appreciate your time and insight!
