Gut Dysfunction / Leaky Gut Syndrome

“Leaky Gut Syndrome” also known as intestinal permeability, occurs when food particles and bacteria can enter into the blood stream from a damaged barrier in the intestinal lining. This damaged barrier can occur by:

  • Stress
  • Medications such as antacids and antibiotics
  • Toxins such as pesticide-sprayed inorganic foods
  • Infections
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Chronic constipation
  • Lack of healthy probiotics

Once these food particles, proteins, and bacteria enter the bloodstream our body triggers an immune response that leads to inflammation in the body and can lead to food sensitivities, allergies, malnutrition, and eventually to autoimmune disease.

Conditions possibly associated with Leaky Gut Syndrome:

  • Lupus
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Eczema/Dermatitis
  • Hashimotos Disease
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Anxiety/Depression

Leaky Gut Syndrome can be treated with the 5R program that includes:

  • Removing common food triggers/sensitivities
  • Replacing digestive enzymes that may be lost due to medications and diet
  • Reinoculation with the correct pre- and pro-biotics
  • Repair the gut by adding in nutrients and amino acids
  • Rebalance the mind and body to help manage physiological stress

We can help you with each of these steps to repair your gut to help treat autoimmunity.
