What’s Leaky Gut? Is leaky gut really a thing?

Leaky Gut or an inflamed poorly operating digestive system is one of the most common root causes to diseases that we see. Leaky gut is often a root cause in Autoimmune diseases like Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism, and Multiple Sclerosis, and in infertility and PCOS (Polycystic ovarian Syndrome). In this video Dr. Satcher briefly describes what it is and how it impacts our health.

Having digestive issues such as reflux (even if no symptoms now on medications), ulcers, bloating, changes in bowel consistency like constipation, loose stools or diarrhea, seeing undigested foods in the stool, Multiple food sensitivities that keep getting worse (like Celiac disease), Irritable Bowel Syndrome, had or having gall bladder, liver or pancreas issues, autoimmune colitis- Inflammatory bowel diseases like Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s disease?

Frustrated with a lack of complete relief with medications or understanding that medications address symptoms and not root cause?

Afraid of developing future issues with Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, Cancer or celiac disease?

Are these your questions?: What helps leaky gut? How is leaky gut treated?

What causes leaky gut? Certain foods, stress(energy imbalances), toxins (environment) and dysbiosis contribute to an inflamed digestive system. Dysbiosis, or an imbalance of the microbes occurs as a result of imbalances in macro nutrients in the diet. Probiotics and antibiotics will not solve this issue, but may provide a bandaid. Getting to the root cause of most diseases requires that we figure this one out first.
