Fibromyalgia Mystery Solved Update | Fed Up with Fatigue

    What are your thoughts about leaky gut syndrome’s connection to fibromyalgia and
    also the RepairVite diet? Thanks so much for whatever info you could provide.

      I think it’s an emerging topic. More and more research is connecting gut health to overall health. It makes sense to me that if you have leaky gut, then that’s fanning inflammation in the body, and inflammation leads to increased pain, fatigue, etc. I wish there was a good way to test for leaky gut. I’m curious if that’s an issue for me or not. I haven’t heard of the RepairVite diet, but just did a quick Google search. It looks similar to other restricted, anti-inflammatory diets, like AIP and Whole 30. I just finished the Whole 30. I didn’t think it was really making much of a difference in my symptoms while I was doing it, but I’ve been off of the diet 2 weeks now, and my pain has really amped up after adding foods back in. I think it’s worth it to try these sorts of diets and see if they make a difference.
