The body does repair itself given the right tools… And, with leaky gut, IBS and other GI distress issues, it may take 7 days of modules to learn what components need to be included, but it takes more like 7 months to have it all go away. I have had some GI issues resolve in 7 weeks, but those were usually not leaky got but the early stages of gut imbalances.
When you add the stress and the carbs together, and don’t include greens, you basically create a great level of dysbiosis (imbalance of gut flora), and this is often where the issue begins. Left unattended, this can develop into leaky gut…and most likely will. Even this can take months or years.
