Leaky gut

Leaky gut, also known as intestinal permeability, is a condition in which the lining of the gut becomes damaged, allowing undigested food particles, bacteria, and toxins to leak through the gut wall and into the bloodstream. This can cause an immune response, leading to inflammation and a range of symptoms such as food sensitivities, autoimmune disorders, skin conditions, and chronic fatigue. The gut lining is a barrier that is designed to keep out harmful substances while allowing nutrients to pass through. The gut lining is made up of tight junctions, which are small gatekeepers that control what is allowed to pass through the gut wall. When the gut lining is damaged, these tight junctions become loose, allowing harmful substances to pass through the gut wall. This can cause an immune response, leading to inflammation. Leaky gut can be caused by a variety of factors such as chronic stress, poor diet, excessive alcohol consumption, certain medications, and certain infections. A diet high in processed foods, sugar, and artificial ingredients can contribute to inflammation in the gut and can lead to leaky gut. This complex condition and its diagnosis is not widely accepted by mainstream medicine that's why it's best to work with a functional practitioner - like me - if you suspect you may have leaky gut or any other health condition. Together we'll get you the proper health assessments and protocol to get you back to feeling your best! #stomach #stomachpain #stomachproblems #stomachache #inflammation #inflammatoryboweldisease #brainfunction #chronicfatigue #skinrash #psoriasis #dermatitis #foodsensitivities #foodsensitivitytest #foodsensitivity #foodsensitivitytesting #autoimmune #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunity #diet #leakygut
