LEAKY GUT – How Do You Fix Leaky Gut Syndrome?


If you’ve been experiencing all sorts of strange symptoms such as aches, pains and digestive issues, it could be a sign of a leaky gut.

The food we eat is essential to our good health. What are the effects of leaky gut syndrome on the body, and what can be done to repair and recover from it?


What is Leaky Gut?

Leaky gut is not really a diagnosis, but a symptom of one or more other health issues you might be suffering from.

Many traditional doctors don’t even believe it exists

The gut needs to be permeable, that is, allow liquids to pass, in order to send nutrients into the bloodstream, but if it is too permeable, it can leak toxins, food particles and more into the body

How is Leaky Gut Related to Autoimmune Disorders?

Leaky gut could be related to autoimmune disorders like arthritis because the substances leaking from the small intestine can trigger a response from the immune system, switching it on

Once it is switched on, it will keep attacking the body
