Can someone point me to some studies that show caffeine (esp from teas)
increase intestinal premeability? I couldn't draw a conclusion based on
articles at pubmed using "caffeine" and "intestinal permeability" or
"muscosal permeability" or "ulcer" as search terms? Would a cup of
black or green tea per day be beneficial or detrimental for a person
with "Leak Gut Syndrome"?

No! "caffeine" has no effect on intestinal permeability"
http://jap.physiology.org/cgi/content/full/89/3/1079
However, intestinal glucose uptake was increased.

Huh?

I think that it would simply be better to cure the leak gut, than to
worry about caffeine.

Thanks for the link.

You are right, but I haven't been able to using a diet based primarily
on fresh salads, vegetables, beans and olive oil (these are least
problematic to me) with a wide assortment of supplements over the past
year. What would you suggest?

Well, I really have no idea.

The person who owns the problem should be the one to do all the work,
as he is the one who has to make all the decisions. Seems to me, that
you should also be motivated enough to want to do something about it.

A good place to start would be to start reading through the literature,
such as:
http://www.google.com/search?num=100&hl=en&lr=&as_qdr=all&q=Alternative+health+leaky+gut+syndrome%22+treatment+OR+therapy+OR+cure&btnG=Search

After a while, you should be able to come up with a number of possible
causes of your problem. And, possible treatments.

You need to start thinking about what you might have done wrong in the
first place to cause the problem. Sometimes, you will get fast
results. And, sometimes it might take you a couple of years before you
finally identify the real problem.

Been sort of a health nut most of my life, avoiding cooking oils, fried
foods, junk food, colas, chips, cake, donuts, snack foods, candies,
limited meats (mostly chicken and fish, avoided red) and was vegetarian
at times. In the past, the two most prevalent foods in my diet were
whole milk (including yogurt) and whole grains. I now have allergic
reactions to both of them.

Articles similar to "Leaky Gut Syndromes: Breaking the Vicious Cycle"
by Leo Galland seem to fit my situation. Quite few of them advise to
avoid caffeine as they supposedly increase intestinal permeability.

I recall one web page on Leaky Gut Syndrome that said it was associated
with celiac disease. Could be that you are allergic to gluten. So, you
might want to check celiac disease out.

It sounds like arachidonic acid overload, mostly. Other things, such
as carrageenan consumption, may be playing a role. To understand this,
