SWAMI indicates that whey protein as neutral for me, and I don't find myself reacting adversely to it. Whey protein concentrate is only dehydrated whey, not much messing done to it.Quoted from Goldiewhy eat the extra whey protein.. I know about building muscles.. but why add to you're foods that in my book are marked as 'messed' with.. (prot powder)
Anyone else?can lactose pass undigested into the blood stream with gut damage? If so, what might happen if there was free lactose in the blood stream?
I've read a lot that says otherwise.Quoted from Goldiefood does not pass undigested into the blood stream
pc, I had beef w/ Swiss cheese, salt, and ground cayenne pepper, and turnip greens with butter and salt. Nothing but water after that between eating and reacting.

Brilliant summary ;) I assume "little fingers" are describing the villi? ??) :-/Quoted from VickiTJ, Dr. D'Adamo took time during the conferences to explain that leaky gut isn't a hole in the digestive tract.
Will do my best to explain as true to Dr. D as possible - please forgive any misrepresentations on my part.
The digestive system surface is like a very high quality terry cloth towel. This allows for a very large surface area to be in a relatively small area.
Each loop of the terry cloth is like a finger in the digestive tract. Below this rich terry cloth like surface is the circulatory system
Each finger in the digestive tract, is then again covered with a second rich layer of fingers like terry cloth loops.
The surface area of the human digestive tract provides approximately the same area as three football fields when flattened out.
Leaky gut really isn't a hole in the digestive system. When you look at someone with gut damage microscopically, it looks as if a bomb has gone off in that area. The little fingers are gone.
He did mention that some issues involving the brain can be treated by healing the gut because the bits of the explosion can go to the brain.
Thanks Artlover ;);D Hmmm we are indeed ;) Pity that elegance doesn't always translate to the skeletol frame... ??) I do have moments of...but I cannot imagine anyone describing me as "elegant" :D I am the sort of person who would trip over my own wedding dress... :-/ Except somehow thankfully I didn't ;)Quoted from AKArtloverYes, the villi are what Vicki means. I was fascinated when Dr. D pointed out that the villi fingers Vicki is referring to are covered with their own tiny (microscopic?) "fingers." Incredibly efficient way to increase the surface area absorbtion dramatically. We are designed so elegantly!

Quoted Text'Liver work' will also help. Personally, I think non-secretors have problems controlling lipid peroxidation in their bile ducts. This may be because of some alteration to their 'reticuloendothelial' system (the white blood cells in the liver) to compensate for their lack of adequate Secretory IgA, a phenomenon producing what is often simplistically referred to as 'leaky gut syndrome.'
Maybe you should do a castor oil pack every now and then. Wear a yellow T-shirt.
Add this to what Lola just quoted, and to the understanding that the blood carrying nutrients away from the digestive tract goes through the liver before going anywhere else, and that does tie things together.Quoted from http://www.drpeterjdadamo.com/wiki/wiki.pl/Celiac_Disease_%28Sprue%29%2c_ABO_and_Secretor_Blood_TypesIn contrast with having too much of that antibody, it is ten times more common in celiac patients to have a lack of IgA (the protective antibody in mucus) than in the general population. There is a strong association between being a non-secretor and having overt celiac disease, non secretors being about 200% more likely to have celiac than secretors (1). This would make sense, since it has been noted for over 20 years that Non-secretors had lower levels of IgA than secretors.
I've read a lot that says otherwise.
[i]I recently came across the term bioavailability in reference to proteins. High bioavailability means the food is absorbed through the intestine into the blood stream quickly. It's interesting that eggs and whey are the highest bioavailable sources of protein. It now makes sense to me why they would be so much trouble: they don't stay in my gut long enough to be digested.
Just when I thought I knew something.... ::) I doubt I have the background needed to understand such detailed biochemistry!Quoted from Dr. DThere are 150 unique mechanisms by which something can be endocytosed (gobbles) up by the cells of the intestines.
Spot on!Quoted from ABJoeIt may be that they cause problems for you because for some reason you are not able to handle a large influx of protein at one time. Maybe for you it needs to be spread out over a longer time frame - which happens when other proteins remain in the gut longer - they will break down at different rates, so will be "metered" into the bloodstream. Do you think this may have any merit?
Let me respond thus:Quoted from ChloeThis person agrees with Goldie
I'm not suggesting that you're going to find heavily buttered and salted popcorn pumping through your hepatic vein an hour into the movie.Quoted from PossumGoldie - I don't think anyone is talking about "actual food" - more the nutrients (or toxins) or whatever allergens our bodies react to...
There's always a danger of not even knowing what questions you should ask when you talk to an expert!
;D ;D ;D :D :D :D oh you crack me up TJ!!!!There's always a danger of not even knowing what questions you should ask when you talk to an expert! But in the event that Dr. D doesn't disagree with my theory about leaky gut, I'll put this out there.
Let me respond thus:I'm not suggesting that you're going to find heavily buttered and salted popcorn pumping through your hepatic vein an hour into the movie.
If I'm wrong, that's just more reason to avoid popcorn. ;)
Quoted from SpringI don't remember my stomach and intestines not hurting throughout my entire life until I found the BTD. It was an amazing experience!! A fifty-seven year stomachache is a LONG time!!
