The Repairvite Diet Protocol

DrClarks Repairvite Diet

Please refer to the leaky gut post blog here, where I mention the WHY of doing a diet such as the Repairvite Diet, and what leaky gut means.

The repairvite diet is basically the autoimmune protocol or AIP, but with a few differences.  I would venture to say the repairvite diet is definitely harder to do than AIP. The list is more restrictive. The gal over at the Curious Coconut did a great post, defining the differences and gives some tips as to what to expect and how to do it. Diet is huge and unavoidable when desiring to heal leaky gut, and I believe supplements are extremely helpful too.  There are so many out there, how do you know what you need?  This is why it is so important to have a healthcare practitioner look at your labs and evaluate you, so they can address your specific concerns.  This is not a cookie cutter program. I believe diet can help everyone, however, if you have really advanced symptoms you might get better but get stuck or have really slow results.
