Because their is no pharmaceutical for the condition, there has been little discussion of Leaky Gut Syndrome, but it is real. The overburdened belly, that has lived for too many years on junk food and sugars, reaches its limits and begins to manifest in symptoms that are belligerent and demanding.
In holistic medicine practices, the cure is to feed the body what it wants rather than medicate the symptoms and deny the existence of a sick gut. The jury is out as to how Western medicine will collectively decide to treat the condition, but the good new is that it is finally being recognized.
The short explanation of Leaky Gut Syndrome is that the walls of the intestines, which can include bowels, become compromised and more porous, causing a leak into the blood stream. Bacteria and toxins meant as waste are “leaked” into the blood system causing a wide variety of issues. This leak damages your immune system and causes malabsorption of the nutrients. You become sick from both from toxic exposure and eventually from the lack of nutrition. It can be caused by poor diet, parasites, infections and even medications.
What are the symptoms?
The list of symptoms above are just the most common. Every body is different and how it reacts to a leaking gut will be different for everyone. You should not expect to have every symptom on the list or be surprised if you don't recognize many.
What is important, is that the symptoms of a leaking gut mimic other conditions. Because Western medicine is not in the habit of diagnosing a leaky gut, it is most always misdiagnosed. The treatment given circumvents the cause and wellness stays just out of reach.
Long term gut leaks go on to cause more dangerous conditions and compromises the immune system causing secondary illness. Those who work closely with the condition talk about its relationship to other autoimmune conditions like lupus, Crohn’s Disease, autism and multiple sclerosis.
Your doctor will likely not have the answer, so do your research. You will definitely find commentary on the “crazy concept” of Leaky Gut Syndrome and how it will serve only to extract money from unsuspecting believers. The fact is that the remedies for curing a leaky gut are natural and probably in your cupboard.
So how do you cure Leaky Gut?
A knowledgeable profession can be a great help in managing a leaky gut. Remedies will include:
• Anti-inflammatory Diet
• L-glutamine to strengthen lining of the small intestine
• Omega 3’s to reduce inflammation
• Probiotics to insure bacteria balance
• Digestive Enzymes
• Vitamin and Mineral Support
In truth, there is no pharmaceutical that will cure Leaky Gut Syndrome. The body will repair itself with the right supplements and supporting nutrition. If you choose to use medications to relieve symptoms, do so with caution. The wrong choice in medication could cause further damage.
