Leaky Gut Syndrome

Leaky Gut Syndrome

Poor diets, toxins, antibiotics, and infections can cause damage to lining of your bowels, which is called leaky gut syndrome. Leaky gut syndrome is when there are spaces in between cells in our bodies that allow bacteria and toxins to enter the blood stream. This damages the intestinal lining, which damages microvilli cells. These cells produce enzymes that aid in good digestion. Since these cells are impaired so is digestion.

The impaired digestion keeps the absorption of nutrients to a minimum and allows damaging substances into the bloodstream. When these damaging substances enter our bloodstream our bodies respond back with inflammation, allergic reactions and some other unpleasant symptoms. Diets low in fiber, diets with refined sugar, poor digestion, parasitic infections, zinc deficiency, alcohol, aspirin and ibuprofen have all been linked to causing leaky gut syndrome.

Leaky gut syndrome is also known as intestinal permeability. There are many symptoms associated with this syndrome; abdominal pain, join pain, indigestion, gas, confusion, mood swings, poor immunity, skin rashes, diarrhea, recurrent vaginal infections, foggy thinking, wetting the bed, bladder infections, bad memory, constipation, bloating, shortness of breath, anxiety, fatigue and aggressive behavior are all the symptoms.

Certain things will aggravate you when you suffer from leaky gut syndrome. You want to try and avoid caffeine, alcohol, spicy hot foods, food additives, antacids, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID’S), and some environmental things such as pesticides and insecticides.

There are many conditions that known to be linked to leaky gut syndrome. These would include crohn’s disease; autism, multiple sclerosis, irritable bowel syndrome, food allergies, colon cancer, liver problems, malnutrition, and chronic fatigue syndrome are just a few.

LGS (leaky gut syndrome) is a hard thing to treat and it may even lead to other serious problems. There are some things you can do on a daily or monthly basis to help treat and prevent this syndrome from occurring. You want to add antioxidants to your diet, do a bowel cleanse, take friendly bacteria supplements (probiotics, acidophilus, bifidus, lactobacillus), eat yogurt once a day, remove starches and sugar for your daily meals, and consume fish oils or flaxseed oils daily.

Try to incorporate digestive enzymes as well, eat two cloves of garlic daily, and add lots of fiber to your diet. Fiber will help remove layers of debris and clean the colon. Uncooked vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and wheat bran are good sources of fiber.

You want to avoid fructose, chips, sodas, fruit juices, ice cream, cakes, cookies, white bread, potatoes and all refined flours. Stay away from fermented products or things that contain yeast like alcohol, vinegar, soy sauce and bread.
