I assume your comments are aimed at me.

I agree, people should get diagnosed by professionals but I think most of us here have been through all that and that is why we are here.
What have we left but self-diagnosing since we haven't gotten answers elsewhere.

I will have had this for nearly 4 years now. I considered myself 808% functionll y cured since I can walk barefoot, play light sports acitvities etc without pain and walk all I want, where I crawled for the 1st 2 years on and off.

I know there are different solutions for everyone so use only that advise you think applies. I have tried nearly everything on this board and seen at least 30 different specialists, spent two weeks at Mayo, several neuroligists, Pod, ortho, rheum, accupuncture, gastros, months of PT, etc. My med bill for all this is around 20k.

After all this,it was the leaky gut diet, exercise,vit,etc. and an improvement in attitude on life etc that worked.

So far, I haven't seen a single other person try the the leaky gut test although many are trying the leaky gut remedies (they may not work if your shooting for the wrong thing) so I suggest to Alan that he try the test. It seems possible that he and his wife contracted some sort of instestinal bug from food since they both got the foot problem around the same time after a round with the flu.

Whether you have TTS or whatever supposedly this leaky gut thing can turn your whole body upsidedown.

Anyhow, I don't know why you think I'm out of line in my adive to ALan. I have had significant improvement and feel that I should let others know what I did.

I think people are hoping for success too fast witht this diet thing. Who knows, in some cases it may take years of leaky gut (or some other mild intestinal disorder or food reation) to screw up your body to the point of developing these types of problems and it may take years to make it go away. It did for me.

Take care.

Gordon, I don't know where you got the idea that people are hoping for too-fast success on the candida or leaky gut diet. I haven't seen any evidence of that on this board. I embarked on it on December 29, and part of my research included reading your posts about it of last year. I'm taking it mighty seriously and have devoted myself to it. I'm in it for the long haul, as I think I've made clear in my posts. What people are you talking about? I know of at least two others who are a lot farther along than I am -- one is three months along on the diet, and the other went through it seven years ago and sticks to it to this day -- so I can't imagine you mean them. Actually, when you started posting again now, I was hoping to hear more details about how you think the diet has helped PF since last year, what diet specifics you've settled on as a maintenance program, etc. But you haven't commented on in detail on these things. And now you say we all want a quick fix, and you're signing off? I'm disappointed!

Sorry, but I think I have no more to offer than what I've previously said. The diet that works for me ellinates all sweets, and wheat products, emphasizes raw nuts and seeds, fruit and veg and meat and I exercise every day, take Vit C , e, and jarodophylis. It seems that this total combination is needed for me.

I'm not saying all people want a quick fix, but I fear that some don't give things enough time.

Also, I believe that our minds have more impact on our health than any other single source and yet this is often our worst enemy. Make sure your mind is on your side. Never let anger,resentment, jealousy, or any negative thoughts fester. These are killers and we all know this but do not always act on this knowledge.

Good luck

Esp. given your last paragraph, my guess is you would continue to be an asset to this board. Re-reminding people can be tedious and you are certainly not obligated -- and if you are cured it is great to be able to move on. So if that's what you choose to do, thanks for your advice and I am glad I was around when you posted.

Good luck
