Leaky Gut

Have you heard of Leaky Gut? It sounds gross, but it’s a real thing. The medical term is Increased Intestinal Permeability. In short, it means that there are little holes in your gut. Substances that are normally not allowed through, like toxins, bacteria or undigested foods, are now entering the blood stream and causing inflammation inside your body.

As hippocrates said “All disease starts in the gut” more and more studies have shown that Leaky Gut is the root cause of allergies, thyroid issues, skin problems, mental diseases, weight gain and many many more.

Dr Axe seems to be the leading man when it comes to Leaky Gut. His book is called “Eat Dirt”. It is really fascinating. If what he says is true, then virtually every disease can be prevented and even reversed by healing the gut! In his book he also explains how to heal your gut, which is basically to remove the toxins that wreak havoc, replace them with healing foods, repair with supplements and rebalance with probiotics and lifestyle change. Please read more here.

The most common symptoms are:

  • Bloating
  • Food sensitivities
  • Thyroid conditions
  • Fatigue
  • Joint pain
  • Headaches
  • Skin issues
  • Digestive problems
  • Weight gain

Many people have leaky gut and don’t even know it. Most of us don’t even know we have “ailments” because we have been living with them forever and have never known a different way.

If you find out you do suffer from Leaky Gut I would advise you to seek treatment with your normal physician or find someone who knows more about it. Studies on Leaky Gut are very recent so not all physicians may be up to date, so don’t be surprised if your doctor has never heard of it.

Listen to your body and trust yourself! You know your body and mind best!
