Hi Amie,
I just discovered your blog while researching information on leaky gut and am very glad I did :)
I know you’re not a doctor but do you know the following:
I tested positive for some food intolerances that included casein, eggs, wheat, corn…and some grains, but not all (negative for quinoa and millet, for example).
I have Hashimto’s. I am wondering if that means I must stay off the grains that came out positive and can eat those that came back negative, or should I drop all grains altogether if I have a leaky gut?

Thank you for your help :)
Looking forward to reading your next post,
Celine
