Per 66 Chevy's suggestion I'm posting details from my bio intro here for additional response and feedback.

I have really bad leaky gut & brain fog and I recently found out about BPC-157, TB-500 and injectable carnitine which apparently can be helpful for these issues.

I recently bought the oral (pill) version of BPC-157 to initially try & I will admit it seems to help BUT the issue still persists (however they're more tolerable in the last week or so). I'm now considering injecting BPC, since that seems to work better apparently, so I'm looking to learn how to do that safely and effectively. I'm also considering using TB-500 & injectable carnitine.

I'm looking for the best protocol possible to help heal this leaky gut issue I've been dealing with for 3 years. I'm asking for those in the know to please share mixing instructions, dosages and frequency.

I've run cycles in the past (back in 2010 & 2011), so I'm familiar with pinning and all the things that go with it. Except now I'm doing this to get my life & health back, rather then doing it for aesthetic/athletic reasons.

If there are any other suggestions anyone has I'd be open to hearing them.

Thanks in advance!

so its in the right area - again:
for stomach issues - take 500 mg of BCP157 with an insulin needle in the stomach once a day. You could it twice a day at 250 Mcg per shot. If that didn't work after a month I would try a 1,000.
Buy the peptide, bacteriostatic water and insulin needles. If you use TB500 as well - take 1000 a day or 2000 EOD.
I'm sure you tried it all the digestive enzymes like wobenzymes but they would be worth a shot.
If the stomach is the cause of the brain fog - fix the stomach and the brain fog should be remedied.
good luck

Hey Phil,

I'm going to give you some advice on leaky gut and diet, I had this awful 4 years ago and have managed to get it under control.

leaky gut is directly correlated with cholesterol issues so you definitely want to fix your gut simply for this reason! It's how your arteries get clogged!
(bad readings in high LDL and Triglycerides)

So what we have to do is a food allergy test, you may be allergic to certain foods ( I am allergic to beans and wheat, which was a major cause of my leaky gut).

you MUST START consuming fermented foods right away!

- Apple cider vinegar 2 tbsp twice a day in water
- fermented sauerkraut ( You can buy these in the natural food isle at Superstore, or any healthfood grocery store)
- fermented coleslaw
- fermented Kim Chi
- fermented anything will work

**************- you must learn to enjoy Kombucha tea, I absolutely hated it when I first tried it and now I drink one everyday and have for 4 years. DAVE'S GT brand is my favourite and they have low sugar options. YOU MUST DRINK ONE OF THESE AT LEAST EVERY OTHER DAY!

the bacteria thats in your gut needs these fermented foods to survive, its important that you eat these products daily!!!!

Also, I would suggest you cut out the inflammatory foods immediately, such as:

- wheat, oats, corn and rye
- dairy
- beans
- rice
- white potatoes

just cut them out for now, you can start to introduce them in a few weeks but you will need to stick to protein ( beef, poultry, fish , pork etc) & vegetables for now. Sweet potato is your friend

*********SUGAR IS A BIG NO**********, No candy, no processed sugar, no artificial sweetener!!


it will take some time, but you should notice a big difference in about a weeks time, especially on the toilet!!!! your poop will be the big surprise and you will know when its starts to heal from your washroom visits , you will have that "FOG" Gone and you will start to feel better overall!

now ....... your diet is going to be a basic Paleo or keto diet for a few weeks, don't be surprised if you don't learn to enjoy it, when you decide to re introduce a food back into you daily eating regime, really pay attention how your body reacts, if you have cleansed the gut properly it will make you feel shitty and thats a sign to stay clear of it. Cheese destroys me, I've been dairy free for 4 years and don't regret a thing about giving it up!


If you have any other questions fire away, I am quite knowledgable on the subject but do not claim to be an expert or doctor on leaky gut syndrome!

Ok - I’m going to give you an alternative option here.
Firstly there is no such things as “leaky gut”.
It’s “alternative medicine” or a “fad diagnosis” usually talked about by chiropractors or other practitioners of alt medicine as a way to get you to buy their expensive treatments and supplements.
There is however a known medical condition known as “increased intestinal permeability”. Which is a different, and treatable condition.

Anyway it is true that gut biome and an imbalance in the flora of your gut can influence your overall health...but beware of anyone claiming that you have to take such and such supplements and immediately do a “cleanse” or any other BS.

When my friend was diagnosed with “leaky gut” by his chiro- he spent literally THOUSANDS (against my advice) on all the pills and shakes and BS that you could imagine.
Anyway/ months later and long story short - he went to a doctor and after a few simple tests - turned out his thyroid wasn’t functioning properly.
They prescribed him synthroid (I think) and he’s as good as new.

Same symptoms as you- lethargy, brain fog, difficulties digesting food (they thought he might be lactose intolerant) he also has low libido and disinterest in life...or a general malaise.

Anyway - to each their own and I’m sure you’ll figure it out eventually. Just wanted to give you a different perspective.

Lots of good threads on how to help our issues naturally like this post .. would it be a good idea to make post like this a sticky for leaky gut? Or a separate section?.. same with @Goldenrod post about blood pressure. We've had some good ones about anxiety/depression as well..

I feel like some of this info is gold, and it gets lost with all the other threads.

I truly believe that there is a condition called Leaky gut syndrome, not to take away from you bro's condition, intestinal permeability is essentially leaky gut syndrome, it is where there are perferations on the microscopic level in the intestines and stomach where the bad stuff ie: fats lipids, chemicals etc etc.... find their way into the blood stream..... this is where people get bad cholesterol levels because the lipids leak into the blood system.

yes some people can be misdiagnosed with what you friend had but to fix leaky gut one does not have to spend tons of money, it's simply a lifestyle change in their current diet.

my 2 cents!

How is your diet?
Both of these symptoms mentioned here can be caused by poor diet and insulin resistance.
Leaky gut is one of the middle stages before your body starts to actually develop heart disease through arterial plaquing.

I totally agree with Marlinman.
I haven't suffered with it before, but a couple of buds of mine have. The key to fixing this is through diet and [hence] biome.
Lots of fermented food like saurkraut (make your own), and Glutamine at least twice per day.

I'd try the diet route for a couple of months, before anything else.

I think leaky gut is a syndrome.
Totally agree that there are a lot of snake oil salesmen in this area though. I know a lady who regularly buys tinctures of 12 dried flower leaves for $300/pop from some herbalist quack she heard about at a naturopathic meet-up hosted by her friend in her house.

Well the thing is “leaky gut” is not actually a medical diagnosis, as in the actual term for the disorder that IS called increased intestinal permeability.
It does exist- and it can cause problems...however the broad range of symptoms/issues claimed by quacks to be cause by LG and then cured by their fad tinctures and supplements are complete nonsense.

Anyway - good to hear you aren’t just taking whomever’s word for it and seeking proper medical assistance.
