    For anyone with gut problems, particularly Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn's Disease and Irritable Bowel Disease (IBD), this may be of interest :

    Source and the rest of the article : http://thepowerofpoop.com/briggs-protocol/

    A later paragraph...

    The author has got his gastroenterologist onboard with the treatment protocol that he (the author) has come up with, presumably because you can't argue with success. And yet I was under the impression that Leaky Gut was still laughed at by many doctors as being "alternative" and therefore not real. Has Leaky Gut become an acceptable and believable condition now, without me noticing?

    This looks like a bunch of nonsense, based on one guy trying everything and doing no research. He's also a big fan of Yasko, with some vague methylation-speak which he doesn't seem to understand, which is a substantial red flag.

    No, it has not been scientifically validated and since it has been around for at least thirty years that probably means there is nothing much to it. The general idea that ulcerative colitis, Crohn's and irritable bowel syndrome all stem from a similar leaky gut problem is quite clearly wrong.

    This is not 'science based'. It is advertising I suspect. Sorry to be negative but I am afraid one has to keep up a constant fight against quacks selling nonsense to everyone.

    Yup, this is just an advertising site.
