Leaky Gut Syndrome, also known as 'Intestinal Permeability' and 'Leaky Bowel Syndrome' is believed to affect up to 65% of the population. It is the deterioration or breakdown of your intestinal wall, in particular the tight junctions that hold your intestinal cells together. When this occurs microscopic holes appear in either your large or small intestine, which allows intestinal bacteria, parasites, worms and their bi-products as well as allergens, undigested food particles, poisons, toxins and in severe cases faeces to pass into your bloodstream. These unwanted particles, once entered into your system, can cause or contribute to a myriad of health problems as seen below.
People who suffer from Leaky Gut Syndrome also generally have; an imbalance between their good and bad intestinal bacteria, an inability to properly breakdown and absorb the nutrients from their food resulting in some degree of malabsorption, as well as a diminished ability to adequately remove toxins from the body via their bowel.
Leaky Gut Syndrome can be caused by a number of issues such as;
|Ageing||Intestinal bacterial infections|
|Allergies||Low stomach acid (Hypochlorhydria)|
|Antibiotics||Maldigestion (impaired digestion)|
|Binge drinking & excessive alcohol consumption||Non-steriodal anti-inflammatory drugs (Celebrex, Ibuprofen, Mobic, Voltaren)|
|Blastocystis hominis||Pancreatic insufficiency (lack of digestive enzymes)|
|Candida/Candidiasis||Poor diet (eg. sweets/biscuits/cakes/soft drinks/white bread etc|
|Cocaine||Prescription corticosteroids (eg. Prednisone, Hydrocortisone)|
|Coeliac disease||Prescription hormones like the birth control pill|
|Chemotherapy treatment||Radiation therapy|
|Detrimental protozoa||Sepsis (blood poisoning)|
|Endurance exercise||Serious burns|
|Food additives||Simple sugars|
|Food allergies and sensitivities||Stress|
|Heavy metal exposure||Yersinia enterocolitica|
|Inflammatory joint disease|
Many illnesses and health issues have been attributed to Leaky Gut Syndrome such as;
|Abdominal pain (reoccurring)||Constipation||Memory Loss|
|Accelerated ageing||Crohn's disease||Multiple sclerosis|
|Acute brain injury||Diarrhoea||Obstructive jaundice|
|Acute pancreatitis||Endotoxemia||Pancreatic insufficiency|
|Allergies||Flatulence||Poor immune function|
|Ankylosing spondylitis||Food Allergies||Poor liver function|
|Anxiety||Food Sensitivities||Poor memory|
|Asperger's syndrome||Hives||Pyroluria / Kryptopyrroles|
|Asthma||Inflammatory bowel disease||Reoccurring infections|
|Autism||Inflammatory joint disease||Rheumatoid arthritis|
|Autoimmune Diseases||Insomnia||Reiter's syndrome|
|Bi Polar Disorder||Irritable bowel syndrome||Schizophrenia|
|Burn victims||Itchy skin||Sepsis (blood poisoning)|
|Brain fog||Joint pain||Skin rashes|
|Chronic heart failure||Learning difficulties||Sinus|
|Cirrhosis of the liver||Lower Back Pain||Type 1 diabetes|
|Coeliac disease||Lupus Erythematous||Ulcerative Colitis|
We recommend that you get yourself tested firstly to establish whether or not you are suffering from Leaky Gut Syndrome and secondly to determine the severity of the condition.
The Leaky Gut Syndrome Test Kit is available for purchase from our store and includes a comprehensive and detailed report of your results. This includes dietary and lifestyle advice, strategies to address any underlying causes, recommended nutritional supplementation advice to repair Leaky Gut Syndrome and a long term plan to maintain good intestinal health.
Before starting the process to heal Leaky Gut Syndrome, it's important that any underlying causes are identified and treated accordingly. Otherwise it can be an expensive and futile exercise with no real movement forward in reducing intestinal permeability.
As a result of the many patients we have seen that have suffered from Leaky Gut Syndrome, some common factors have been identified that once treated, allow the healing of Leaky Gut Syndrome to progress smoothly. Diet, food allergies, antibiotics, an over growth of detrimental bacteria, parasites and fungal organisms are major contributors to the progression of Leaky Gut Syndrome.
If you would like the assistance of a health professional to treat and heal Leaky Gut Syndrome, we offer Skype, Phone or In-Clinic Consultations.
