Leaky gut syndrome is a condition that millions of people have, and don’t even know it.
From the sound of it, you might think leaky gut syndrome only hurts the digestive system, but it can lead to many other health conditions.
Think of the lining of your digestive tract like a net with very small holes in it that only lets some things pass through.
Your gut lining works as a wall to keep out the bigger pieces that can harm your system.
When someone has leaky gut, the “net” in the digestive tract gets damaged, which causes bigger holes to form in the net, so things that usually can’t pass through are now able to.
Some of the things that can now pass through are proteins like gluten, bad bacteria, and undigested food pieces.
Toxic waste can also leak from the inside of your intestinal wall into your bloodstream, causing an immune reaction.
This leads to swelling throughout your system and causes things like:
If left unfixed, it can lead to worse health problems like inflammatory bowel disease (IBS), arthritis, eczema, psoriasis, depression, anxiety, migraine headaches, muscle pain, and chronic fatigue.
Leaky gut syndrome has been linked to other psychological disorders such as anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder. So, in many cases, if you can heal the gut, you can heal the brain.
Studies show that the cause of your food allergies, low energy, joint pain, thyroid disease, autoimmune conditions, and slow metabolism could be leaky gut symptom spreading through your body.
Another problem with leaky gut is that it can stop important minerals and nutrients, like zinc, iron, and vitamin B12, from being taken in.
There are four main causes of leaky gut, including:
1. Poor Diet
Foods that have a lot of lectins are a bigger problem. Some of the lectins and foods that cause leaky gut are wheat, rice, spelt, and soy. While you are trying to cure leaky gut, stay away from all grains, especially those that contain gluten like wheat.
Cow’s milk is another food that can cause leaky gut. The component of dairy that will harm your gut is the protein A1 casein. Also, the pasteurization process will kill important enzymes, making sugars like lactose very hard to digest.
Sugar is another thing that can harm your digestive system. Sugar will feed the growth of yeast, candida, and bad bacteria, which will hurt your gut even more.
2. Chronic Stress
Stress weakens your immune system over time, which ruins the body’s power to fight bad bacteria and viruses.
This leads to swelling and leaky gut. To lessen stress, it’s a good idea to get more sleep, add fun into your week, and practice meditation.
We meet up with over 80,000 chemicals and toxins every single year, but the ones that cause leaky gut are antibiotics, pesticides, tap water, aspirin, and anti-inflammatory drugs.
One of the main causes of leaky gut is a condition called dysbiosis, which means uneven levels of good and bad bacteria in your gut. Using too much prescription antibiotic drugs, tap water with chlorine and fluoride, and the lack of probiotic- rich foods adds to the unevenness of good and bad bacteria. If you have leaky gut syndrome, you should think of trying a leaky gut diet.
Here are six foods and supplements to heal your leaky gut.
