Leaky gut syndrome is a rapidly growing condition that thousands of people are suffering with. The syndrome not only affects the digestive system, it can lead to many other health conditions.
The cells of the intestinal lining are supposed to be pressed tightly against one another, sealed by tight junctions. These tight junctions keep partially digested food securely inside your intestines.
Sometimes your intestinal lining can become compromised and allow particles of partly digested foods, microbes waste and toxins to leak out into your bloodstream. When these substances enter your blood stream your body treats them as foreign invaders. Your immune system release chemicals designed to neutralize the threat which can play havoc on your intestinal lining.
If this happens your body can find it difficult to absorb nutrition which can lead to numerous conditions such an increase in appetite, weight gain, joint pain, fatigue, headaches, thyroid conditions, skin eruptions, food intolerances, allergies and bloating.
If any of these symptoms sounds familiar; you may be suffering from leaky gut syndrome.
So here are some measures recommended that can help:
- Remove foods and factors that damage the gut
- Replace and repair with healing foods and supplements
- Rebalance with probiotics
Avoid large intake of sugar, gluten, low fibre diet and chemically sprayed foods. Be aware of your stress levels as this can worsen the condition.
Replace and Repair
Include these foods and supplements in your diet:
Aloe Vera Juice
L-Glutamine powder is an essential amino acid supplement that is anti-inflammatory. Necessary for the growth and repair of your intestinal lining, acting as a protector, coating your cell walls and acts to repel irritants.
Probiotics supplement will replenish the good bacteria in the gut and diminish bad bacteria. I recommend taking probiotics in both food and supplement form.
If you can follow this protocol, you will be well on your way to successfully treating your gut.
