How leaky gut works

Leaky Gut is a common term used in alternative medicine. The actual name is Gastrointestinal Tract Hyper Permeability, but we use "leaky gut" for short. The human GI tract is permeable, which is how nutrients are absorbed into the blood stream.

When dealing with any autoimmune condition, there will be a leaky gut.

Known causes the damage to the gut: stress, food sensitivities, viruses, bacterial imbalance, low pH, parasites, candida, gluten, environmental toxins, pharmaceutical drugs and more.

Once the gut is compromised, these undigested foods leak into the body cavity creating inflammation,which drives the immune system causing the body to attack itself. This is the autoimmune cascading cycle.

There are Functional Medicine tests which can be ran to determine the underlying cause of your symptoms.
