Leaky Gut Syndrome can be at the core of many different conditions like skin disease, compromised immune systems, food allergies, digestive problems, ear infections or any common health condition that stems from an inflammatory disorder. This protocol provides simple steps to aid in healing at the root cause.
By implementing the pre-step and 4 protocol steps, you will be supporting your dog's own innate ability to start the process of restoring health.
Common ailments that steam from Leaky Gut:
organ disorders - liver, pancreas, gallbladder
WHAT IS LEAKY GUT & IT'S LINK TO ALLERGIES?
Leaky Gut is an increasingly widespread condition in both animals and humans. While awareness of Leaky Gut is slowly increasing, it has had a slow acceptance in the medical community which is concerning, as the gut is responsible for more than 70%of the immune system function!
The delicate intestinal mucosa which lines the gut can be likened to cheesecloth, which should act as a barrier. In Leaky Gut, the cloth junctions have been stretched or damaged to the point where they are no longer able to filter out larger food particles, bacteria and toxins. These particles then pass through the intestinal wall and make their way into the bloodstream which sets off a series of events in the body which triggers the immune system to fight the invaders.
This can be very detrimental, for example, if the invaders are proteins that the animal has eaten and which the body is now building antibodies against. All of this battling leads to chronic inflammation and distress - symptoms which are often labeled as “allergies”.
Initial 2-day regime that assists in the removal of associated vaccine side effects without removing any vaccine benefits. Complete this step before moving on to Step 1. DIRECTIONS Give 0.5 ml twice a day for two (2) days only. Give 20 minutes before or after food. Contamination warning: do not allow dropper to make contact with mouth.
STEP 1 : REMOVE with LIVER TONIC
Helps regenerate healthy liver cells and boosts the organ’s ability to filter toxins from the blood. Aids in proper function of histamine (associated with allergies, chronic inflammation), protein synthesis and biochemical production for digestion. DIRECTIONS Add to food two (2) times per day. Give daily until bottle is finished. 60 lbs / 27 kg and under: 1/2 dropper (x2 per day), over 60 lbs / 27 kg: 1 full dropper (x2 per day)
STEP 2 : REBALANCE with HEALTHY GUT
Helps rebalance and cultivate proper growing conditions for friendly digestive flora destroyed through antibiotics and toxins. Aids in the digestion of food and supports a healthy immune system. DIRECTIONS Divide your pet’s recommended daily dose and add evenly into each meal.

avoid routine vaccinations by opting for titer testing instead
consider homeopathy, laser, acupuncture as alternatives to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaid’s)
identify sources of stress for your dog and minimize (ie. boredom)
feed a species-appropriate diet
avoid as many drugs as possible, consider connecting with a hollistic veterinarian who practices homeopathy or alternative medicine

Will my pet be on the Leaky Gut Protocol for life?
Many animals achieve the desired symptom resolution or relief with just one kit. Other pets with deeper issues may require ongoing support or multiple kits. You should see gradual improvement as long as you are using it, but if the improvement stops or conditions appear to be worsening, then you may need to use the Yeasty Beast Protocol and then go back to the Leaky Gut Protocol. When your animal improves completely on the protocol then it is always a good idea to do one protocol a year to help keep the gut in prime condition.
Do I have to stop using all other medications for allergies (Atopica, Apoquel, etc)?
While you continue to use drugs you will continue to create damage, BUT you can't just stop any drugs cold turkey! We believe that a slow decrease (so as not to shock the body) is best, BUT please always check with your vet with any drugs your animal is on to be sure they are compatible and to find out how to wean off of them.
How long until I see changes?
This depends on a number of things:
How long your animal has been ill
How much medication he or she has been on
If you are supporting them with nutritious whole real food and not processed food
We have seen animals improve in 1 week and some animals taking one month to show improvement.
What will changes look like?
Here is whole list of positive changes:
Deeper, more relaxed sleep
Less joint pain
Better hair coat
Less reverse sneezing
Better quality stools
Weight gain or loss, more balanced weight
Remember, the gut is in charge of so many things! What you think may be symptoms of leaky gut (ie. itchy skin or hot spots) are only what you physically see going on. The imbalance and trauma is deep below the surface and you may see other improvements before you see the skin symptoms getting better. If this happens (ie. your dog has more energy, is getting along better with other dogs, or is more engaged and happier) but the skin symptoms are the same, this can be a very good sign that things are improving deep down and that the gut is getting healthier and the skin will take a bit longer to show signs of improvement. Consider it almost like things are getting better from the inside out!
Will my pet's symptoms get worse before they get better?
If your animal has a very strong yeast infestation or overgrowth, a rapid die-off/detox can occur. In this case, we recommend switching to our Yeasty Beast Protocol then back to the Leaky Gut Protocol to support healing.
Good question! If your animal has ever been diagnosed with yeast in their ears or on their skin, the answer is YES! Doing the Yeasty Beast Protocol first will help to kill the yeast bacteria and then you would do the Leaky Gut Protocol to help to heal the damage they've done!
If your dog has a yeasty smell (dirty socks, stinky old cheese) then that's a strong indication of yeast and it would be helpful to start the Yeasty Beast first.
But remember that yeast is so incredibly damaging to the gut and 9 times out of 10 your dog will also have leaky gut or gut trauma that needs support to be healed.
How come I ran out of some of the products in the kit? Do I keep giving the rest?
This is because the powders' serving sizes are based on body weight, whereas the tinctures and homeopathics aren't. We don't have a kit for weight ranges. Many folks find that they do not need to purchase an additional single Gut Seal and they just finish off each product as they run out, but if you are feeling like there is still some additional "work to be done" you can certainly purchase a single Gut Seal to keep going. You would just need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to purchase. It's not listed for individual sale on WTF as it's only to be used in conjunction with the rest of the Leaky Gut Protocol ingredients.
All of the other protocol products are available for sale individually on WTF. Kindly note that individual sizes of Anti-Vaccinosis (bigger than protocol), Healthy Gut and Gut Soothe (smaller than protocol) sizes are different from Protocol Kit sizes.
Why do I use all the products but not the Anti-Vaccinosis? I have so much left!
We included a large enough bottle for a few reasons:
1. Many times it is necessary to repeat this process up to 4-8 times. If you see that the Protocol initially helped but stalled, then it is helpful to repeat the Anti Vaccinosis the same way BUT you do NOT stop the rest of the Protocol. Simply add the Anti Vaccinosis back in twice a day for 2 days. If you see improvement you can repeat it every 2 weeks, up to 8 times AS LONG AS YOU SEE IMPROVEMENT EACH TIME, GIVE IT.
2. Even though we do NOT support continuing to vaccinate, some people choose to revaccinate. If this is the case, then there is plenty to redose. This product has a very long shelf life so if at any point you do vaccines you can use the product again.
3. If you have a multi-animal household and any of your animals have been vaccinated, it is a very supportive product and you can give it to any one of your furry family members to help with the long term side effects of vaccines!
Does this expire?
Yes, please check the bottom of the jars for the best before date.
