Leaky Gut Syndrome Exposed
Increased intestinal permeability begins with inflammation and irritation to the lining of the digestive tract. Over time, the intestinal lining begins to wear and break down. This forms large gaps between your intestinal cells which then allow toxins, pathogens, and undigested food particles to enter your bloodstream.
Soon after, your liver becomes overloaded with toxins. Your immune system becomes impaired after being continuously assaulted by unwanted substances.
Your hormonal system becomes fatigued after trying to keep up with both the stress of the intestinal permeability along with the stress of everyday life.
Your body is just not designed to handle this chronic stress properly as there is no time to properly rest and repair.
This leads to the development of many common conditions including:
Common Symptoms and Conditions of Leaky Gut Syndrome
- chronic fatigue
- food allergies
- chronic sinusitis
- irritable bowel syndrome
- inflammatory bowel disease
- joint pain
- autoimmune disease
If not, the problem continues and only gets worse. Your health will continue to decline and newer and more severe symptoms will begin to present themselves.
All too often, we try to medicate and mask our symptoms without asking what is causing them in the first place. This approach may offer temporary symptomatic relief but the underlying problem still exists.
