Can a lactose free diet help me with my leaky gut problem? Very good question. Now lactose intolerance is not a common thing, right? Everyone thinks that, “Oh yeah, I avoid dairy and I’ve got dairy allergies, and I’ve got intolerances.” And it does happen, okay? But it’s not as common as you think.
A cool thing to do is if you really think you have a lactose problem, is to stop all dairy products and to see if the bowel firm’s up. Because if you don’t have lactase, or don’t have sufficient lactase, the enzyme to break the lactose down, the result will be … Tummy problems, there’ll be gas, there’ll be bloating, there’ll be diarrhea. So lactose presents itself in that way. It’ll present itself, diarrhea, bloating.

People usually pick up early on in life if they’ve got a lactose problem, not generally late in life, okay? What people pick up later in life, I’ve found personally through my clinic, is celiac. Okay? So a young person may be struggling for years and years all through school, and then finally get diagnosed as being a celiac, all right? But the lactose thing, I find people pick up on that usually earlier on in life.
So yeah, absolutely. If you really have a lactose problem, and you stop milk completely, and anything containing that milk sugar, you’ll find that the bacteria will start balancing out more, okay? Because high lactose counts can push people often into a candida, or a bacterial problem, an imbalance. So, and that will present itself with many symptoms, right? So definitely take that out of the diet and see what happens. If you’ve got leaky gut, it’s good to cut right back on cow’s milk anyway. And there are other milks that you can consume, which are probably better for you. Goat’s milk, for example, resembles breast milk more and tends to be a little better for the gut than cow’s milk. So give that a go.
