Leaky Gut Syndrome – A Very Common GI disorder

The official definition of Leaky Gut Syndrome is an increase in permeability of the intestinal mucosa to luminal macromolecules, antigens, and toxins associated with inflammatory degenerative and/ or atrophic mucosa or lining. 

Put more simply, large spaces develop between the cells of the gut wall allowing bacteria, toxins and food to leak into the bloodstream. Leaky Gut Syndrome has also been linked with many conditions, such as: Celiac Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, Autism, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Eczema, Dermatitis, Ulcerative Colitis.

What causes Leaky Gut?

Severe emotional stress or trauma, drug use especially anti-biotic and anti-inflammatory drugs, alcohol abuse, GI tract parasites, intestinal bacterial infections or overgrowth, ingestion of junk foods – especially deep fried foods made with hydrogenated vegetable oils, excessive consumption of starchy or sugary foods and food allergies. One major junk foods binge or a single course of anti-biotic can create a condition of leaky gut within hours. If the diet doesn’t contain enough nutrients to repair the leaky gut it can become a persistent problem. Leaky Gut Syndrome may also cause a flood of wrong messages to be communicated from the digestive system to the body.
