Leaky gut syndrome is a major cause of disease and dysfunction in modern society. Research has shown that up to 50% of chronic complaints in the U.S. can be linked back to leaky gut.
Let’s explored this a little further…
Think of the lining of your digestive tract like a net with extremely small holes in it. Your gut lining works as a barrier to keep out larger particles…proteins and other foreign substances from entering your blood stream.
When somebody has Leaky Gut, the intestinal lining or “net” gets damaged which can even cause bigger holes to develop. This causes even more particles through such as gluten, undigested food particles, bad bacteria and other toxic waste products. This ultimately causes an immune reaction and a downward spiral in your overall health.
Leaky Gut Extends BEYOND The Digestive System!
- Chronic Diarrhea, Constipation, Gas, Bloating etc.
- Headaches, Brain Fog, Poor Memory
- Chronic Fatigue
- Skin Issues (eczema, psoriasis, acne etc.)
- Joint Pain / Back Pain
- Cravings For Sugar or Carbs
- Poor Immune System
- Nutrient Deficiencies (Vitamin D etc.)
- Anxiety / Depression
Remember, we take a “global” look. We look at a variety of factors including foods, nutrients, toxins, inflammation, cell health etc.
In order to truly get well and solve the problem, you need a doctor who is like a detective. Somebody who will take the time and dig for the root cause. NOT somebody who spends 5 minutes with you, gives you a “chemical” and says come back in 6 weeks. That’s a failed approach.
Again, it’s a big reason why so many people are suffering from digestive dysfunction!
(Constipation, Diarrhea, Gas, Bloating etc.)
If you’re sick of the medical run around…then let’s hop on a discovery call. No cost, simply a chance to ask each other questions and determine if our GI protocol would make sense for you.
