Nice to hear from you again, it’s been a while. Hope you’re doing well.
I think we’re referring to the same process, with the exception that I’m referring more to the permeability of molecular size seepage of fecal content into the bloodstream producing toxicity in the case of leaky gut syndrome, as opposed to having a full tear in the gut through which the whole fecal matter goes into the blood.
I’ve been very busy today, and still unable to do a google search on alimentary toxemia. This sounds very interesting, and do plan to do so. Will get back to you after I do to give you some feedback on it.
Regarding probiotics, I have read in various places that it is highly recommended for tmau. You might want to write to the Trimethylaminuria Foundation at TFnetwk@aol.com to see what the official recommendation is from the experts. Perhaps other types of GI disorders would not benefit from probiotics, and perhaps may even be aggravated by it, I really don’t know.
I had checked out a book last month from the university I go to entitled Probiotics, The scientific basis, edited by R. Fuller (1992), ISBN 0412-408503. Of particular interest to me is Chapter 13, entitled Probiotics for humans by Barry R. Goldin and Sherwood L. Gorbach, in which they discuss the colonization of the gastrointestinal tract, current use of probiotics, nutritional and therapeutic benefits of probiotics, and much more. I do need to finish reading all this before I have to return the book on July 3rd. I’ll let you know what is says.
Thanks for giving me your input. It’s inspired me to research some more. Talk to you later.
