Leaky Gut Syndrome
Leaky Gut Syndrome – What is it?
What is Leaky Gut?
Your intestines “leak” when the intestinal wall allows partially digested food and other matter to escape into the bloodstream. In some spots, your intestinal wall is only a single cell thick, so it’s not that hard to damage.
When particles escapes the intestines in this way, it’s treated like an invader. White blood cells rush to the rescue, resulting in inflammation.
How well our bodies handle toxins depends on the intestinal barrier. If it’s intact, we can eliminate them without a lot of problem. When it’s busted, watch out. Your brain, liver, kidneys, pancreas and skeletal system are all affected by the immune response when toxins leak out of the gut.
What Causes Leaky Gut?
Digestion involves a complex system with a lot of responsibilities. First it has to take food, break it into its component parts and then deliver the nutrients to your bloodstream.
It is also responsible for protecting your immune system by keeping waste products and toxins out of your bloodstream.
If you’ve been eating a typical American high-sugar, high fat, low-fiber diet, you can be pretty sure your gut is unhealthy.
Antibiotics, prescription medications, and yeast can also contribute to leaky gut.
What Can You Do to Fix a Leaky Gut?
Avoid eating anything that comes in a jar or a can, and eat foods as close to their natural state – and as fresh – as you can find. Get plenty of fiber from beans, seeds, nuts and vegetables. Stop consuming refined sugar.
Coconut products are good as well as fermented vegetables such as sauerkraut, kimchi and kvass.
If you feel up to it, you can fast for 3 days using bone broth for the purpose of repairing the walls and lining of the intestines and stomach.
Upon healing, you should find it much easier to achieve and maintain a healthy weight, and conditions like diabetes will go away.
