you need to eat a diet that is uncomplicated. That is steer away from spices, fatty foods and too much at a time. In chinese medicine your chi for your stomach meridian is not balanced. You are losing energy here - hence the lack of absorption. L-glutamine would be one of the first nutritional supplements you can use to help repair the gut lining. you also need to correct the immune system. Beta sitosterols helps to modulate the immune system. Slippery Elm will also heal inflammation. If you have any symptoms of Candida (vaginal thrush, bloated, ect) this also needs to be addressed.
