You might not realize it, but much of your health is tied to the condition of your intestinal lining and your gut flora. From asthma to rheumatoid arthritis, and chronic fatigue to fibromyalgia, a wide variety of chronic health conditions can be traced to leaky gut syndrome.
What Is Leaky Gut Syndrome?
Imagine your digestive tract lining as a fine mesh net that should only allow certain particles to pass. This lining prevents bigger particles from flowing through to your blood stream, and instead, pushes them through to your colon, where they are eliminated. Leaky gut syndrome occurs when your digestive tract lining has been inflamed. Inflammation widens the holes in the netting, allowing large (toxic) particles into the blood stream, resulting in:
- Food intolerances
- Immune system issues
What Causes This Inflammation?
Inflammation of the digestive tract lining is typically caused by:
- Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
- Food allergens
- Cortisol (caused by stress)
- Lactase deficiency
- Gluten allergy
- Unhealthy guy flora (parasites, bacteria, yeast)
- Environmental toxins
Many of these irritants were not even present 100 years ago. Our digestive system was not made to handle these substances.
Food allergies are your body’s reactions to a food it considers a threat. When your body senses the introduction of this particular food, it produces histamine as a way to protect itself. Allergic reactions range from mild to lethal. If untreated, allergies can progress to serious autoimmune conditions. You may not realize that some of your health problems can be easily remedied if food allergies are detected and treated.
Many people are surprised to find out how important a healthy digestive tract lining is and how easy it is to deal with food allergens. Identify the root cause of your health issues and take back your life.
