People with leaky gut often get inflammation, which in turn can cause joint pain. Antibiotics are the leading cause of leaky gut, but alcohol is another important factor.
I had a client with terrible pain in his finger joints. I ordered some blood tests to look at typical inflammatory markers as well as uric acid. Uric acid is something that the body makes and excrete through the kidney. If it builds up, uric acid can cause painful joints. I also checked his kidney function and liver function. Inflammatory markers to look for include c-reactive protein (CRP) or high-sensitivity CRP (HS CRP). The erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is another good measure of inflammation in the body.
This client was from Britain, so I also ordered his iron levels. About one in sixty people from Ireland or Northern England suffer from hemochromatosis, which is a type of iron overload. This gentleman had iron storage protein levels of over 1000, with normal being under 200. This man’s test results made it clear that his liver and kidneys need to be cleansed.
In addition to blood tests, I also had this gentleman do a comprehensive stool analysis. The results showed excessive numbers of harmful bacteria. These bacteria are associated with joint pain.

This man needs to work on his diet and clean out his liver, kidney, and gallbladder. We also added CanXida Remove and CanXida Restore to his treatment plan. I expect that his joint pain will be eighty to ninety percent better in six months. This gentleman won’t have to stay on long term anti-inflammatories.
Joint pain can be made considerably better by cleaning up your diet and digestive system. Just remember, test first, then treat.
