Butyrate/gelatin help food allergies?
Found two other possible "fixes" for food allergies: butyrate, and gelatin. Discuss background of these items.

Notes that apply to this blog:
A. Technically the word "food allergies" only applies to those who go into shock and must head for the nearest emergency room, but the words intolerances and sensitivities are just too darn long, and everyone with this type of problem with certain foods generally ends up calling it food allergies too. Thus, in this blog, "insensitivities" and "intolerances" will be called food allergies. Symptoms of these types of intolerances can be many; a Google search can provide a list if you aren’t sure whether you have them or not. Brain fog, joint pain, fatigue, constant digestive troubles are some.
B. The only cures that I have seen referenced (so far) involve anti-parasite steps, bowel cleansing, liver flushing, or (TWO NEW ONES ADDED TODAY): soothing intestines with things like gelatin or butyrate, possibly relating food allergies to leaky gut.
C. In this blog, I do post some symptomatic relief steps that are not cures, as well as allergen-free recipes, but over time will be experimenting on myself with the things in A and C, to try to actually cure my own food allergies, and spread the word to others who might be helped. Current status: I’m taking small experimental steps with bowel cleansing, because excess mucous from said food allergies causes most bowel cleansing products to not work. Updates on usefulness of various products coming soon. I’m waiting on liver flushing until bowel is cleaner. And, anti-parasite products (have tried many of them) don’t seem effective when bowel is too mucousy, so again I’m back to bowel cleansing. Will buy the gelatin and butyrate products (see below) next to see if they help with symptoms.
Today I found a few refs to two products that might do some healing to the lining of the gut, and if that is what causes a person's food allergies, then VOILA, end of food allergies. The refs used words like "help reduce" food allergies instead of "cure", so I don't think these remedies can be seen as an entire fix. But finding refs like this is so rare, and finding something that reduces the body's reactions to foods without us having to resort to relying on symptomatic relief is even more rare, that these are post-worthy:
Gelatin: Here are some clips, tossed together randomly.
Gelatin can soothe, protect and nourish the intestinal lining. Scientific studies dating back to the turn of the century suggest that gelatin improves the digestion of grains, meat and dairy products. Gelatin lines the mucous membrane of the intestinal tract and guards against further injurious action. Further support of gelatin came in 1937 when Francis Pottenger noted, "Even foods to which individuals are proven to be definitely sensitive… frequently may be tolerated with slight discomfort or none at all if gelatin is made part of the diet." In the early 1900s gelatin was reported to increase the digestibility of milk, meat, wheat, oats and barley, and all gluten containing grains. Those who don't care to keep their stock pots simmering, can achieve similar benefits by taking bovine cartilage supplements. End of random clips.
An important point: some people state that gelatin contains a natural form of MSG and therefore can cause problems for sensitive people BUT I found statements that taking protein-digesting enzymes at the same time as taking gelatin can eliminate this problem. Hmm…could be worth it if it means being to tolerate wheat, milk, and other foods better.
I read about a "calcium magnesium butyrate product" that a few people said seemed to help reverse food allergies". A few of those people had some kind of problem with the product, but that problem disappeared if they took Capricin, an anti-candida item, along with the butyrate. Yet I did not find anything that states that butyrate feed candida at all, so not sure why the Capricin is needed, unless of course, the person has other problems related to candida. A product combining Capricin and the butyrates called Butyrex is available, made by T. E. Neesby, but I'm sure there are other brands out there.
I'm buying both of these products soon and will report on whether they help.
In the meantime, just trying to get through the big "food" holiday here in the U.S.! You know, the one involving turkey (ok for some of us to eat) with various side dishes (often NOT ok for some of us to eat) Arg!
