I have a question about the fingerprint test that Dr. D posted, for gut integrity.  

The skin on my fingertips has always been cracked and all that, like it's constantly shedding off or something.  Does this mean that I definitely lack gut integrity?

In anticipation that this is the case, I've already ordered some Intrinsa.  I think I need it, as my guts have been through hell from years of non-BTD eating.

I think the cracks Dr. D talked about were not cracks in the surface of the skin, just wrinkles in the fingerprint...  Most of my fingerprints have these wrinkles, so I could easily see what he was talking about.  

I also have some fingernails that are messed up as well and the skin on the very tips of these fingers has a tendency to peel.  I think this is due to a fungal infection.  I think the detox and healing will take some time.

I have been using Ghee to increase gut integrity as well as some supplements for digestion, etc.  I think Intrinsa and Deflect would be great additions also.

There are lines, and there are lines. We had a fairly long thread on it last spring/summer and I don't recall all the points made, however, you should take your fingerprints as instructed and look for horizontal (more or less) lines that run through the fingerprints.

In my own case there were enough lines to indicate a problem and they have since gone to the point where 'I can't hardly find them'. On one of my sister's fingertips there are lines that are clear and obvious (without the fingerprints) that are strictly horizontal and run almost across the fingertip. She has Crohn's. I'm not sure how a celiac will show up and don't recall the discussion.

Hopefully others will chime in.

Oh, that's really interesting.  During my childhood I spent a lot of time staring at my hands and picking at my nails and had noticed horizontal lines through the finger prints.  Hadn't thought about it in years.  I just looked again and I only have a couple halfway through both thumbs.

If you rub vitamin E oil into your fingertips and nails every night before bed it might help heal some of the flaking.  If it's fungal (I hate to suggest this since it's not a natural remedy, but it does work), the diaper rash cream A&D Ointment helps.  My husband has a tendency to get skin fungi and he says it's the only thing that helps quickly.

some woman and brick layers have this.....it's usually from scrubbing too much pots and dishes in your day so you may have a good gut after all...how old are you?

Sorry, only 29.  And I stack as much as I possibly can in my dishwasher so I don't have to scrub much.  I haven't layed any bricks in a while, though I do a whole lot of gardening without gloves....

I guess you do have some gut permeability issues...it takes about three months to notice a difference on the fingertips using intrinsa to heal the gut

Albeit, you have already ordered an Intrinsa, you can always use the Supplement Determinator to decipher if you need to utilize this supplement or any other supplement according to your present health profile:
