Leaky Gut relieved by Coconut

I was diagnosed with Hashimotos last year but just recently have been having a lot of problems with my digestion.

After months of suffering the pain and discomfort of heartburn, acid reflux and bloating I decided to take action. My doctor wanted to give me another tablet and have a procedure done at the hospital to see what was going on. After all the ups and downs with Levothyroxine, symptoms of thyroid disease and depression, I was just not ready to start again with another medication so I tried something completely different - coconut water.

I came across it by accident in my local supermarket and what a difference It has made to my digestion. I no longer have that gnawing burning pain in my stomach and the acid reflux when I go to bed!

I drink a small glass after every meal and I can highly recommend it to any fellow sufferers, it has made such a difference.

I know it is expensive but I would pay anything for that pain and nausea to go away without resorting to more medication.

You could also try sparkling carbonated water

Tesco do 4 pack of 2 litre bottles for £1.50 and its very good

Unlike morrisons stuff


Coconut water with a pinch salt and orange juice is an excellent help for adrenals - called the adrenal cocktail


I am on the gaps diet which is very healing and coconut heavy

I glad you have found something that works for you. Where can you buy this and how much is it ?



Cathryn, you can buy it in all supermarkets alongside the juices and it sells for around £2.50 a carton but it is becoming very popular so is often on special offer.

It has a taste that you need to get used to but you can get one with pineapple in.




You could buy some fresh coconuts from the supermarket and drink the water direct from the fruit, it's cheaper! Also, you have the coconut fresh to eat afterwards.

TT xx.
