Leaky Gut Syndrome Affects the Entire Body
When you digest food, your intestinal wall is responsible for separating food particles, toxins, and other waste from the nutrients that get sent into the bloodstream. However, certain aggravating factors (such as poor diet, chronic stress, and bacterial imbalance caused by overuse of antibiotics) can lead to a weakening in this wall, creating a host of other problems including Leaky Gut Syndrome.
Your immune system responds to fight these intruders in the bloodstream. However, since this response is activated every time you eat, the immune system gets no rest. As a result, chronic inflammation can occur.
Some common manifestations of chronic inflammation due to Leaky Gut Syndrome include food intolerances (gluten sensitivity, IBS, IBD), allerigies, hypothyroidism, fatigue, acne, eczema, psoriasis, headaches, and joint pain. It is even linked to other issues such as depression, anxiety, and ADHD.
Leaky Gut Syndrome begins within, but that is also where the healing begins. By changing your diet to eliminate the harmful and increase the helpful nutrients in your digestive system, you can repair the intestinal wall. Other treatments may be recommended by a practitioner, such as Bovine Colostrum.
