Leaky gut syndrome is not generally recognized by conventional physicians, but evidence is accumulating that it is a real condition that affects the lining of the intestines. The theory is that leaky gut syndrome (also called increased intestinal permeability), is the result of damage to the intestinal lining, making it less able to protect the internal environment as well as to filter needed nutrients and other biological substances. As a consequence, some bacteria and their toxins, incompletely digested proteins and fats, and waste not normally absorbed may “leak” out of the intestines into the blood stream. This triggers an autoimmune reaction, which can lead to gastrointestinal problems such as abdominal bloating, excessive gas and cramps, fatigue, food sensitivities, joint pain, skin rashes, and autoimmunity.
Have you ever heard someone start listing off 20+ foods that they are allergic to including weird things like celery, then they may be suffering from a leaky gut. The best way to improve a leaky gut is to eat foods that reduce inflammation and avoid gut-irritating foods. Don’t get me wrong, food allergies are real, but some people may find if their gut is healed that the food allergies mysteriously disappear.
