Do You Have “Leaky Gut?”
The body’s intestinal tract has a lining of tightly packed cells. This is where the absorption of food and nutrients takes place. “Leaky gut” is characterized by weak spots or holes in the intestinal lining caused by things including toxins, food additives, gluten and foods with which the body is sensitive. Even head trauma leads to leaky gut! These allow for unwanted toxins, pathogens, and poorly digested food to pass into the bloodstream where they interact with the immune system. The immune system then goes into action creating antibodies which leads to autoimmune diseases.
You can help the gut heal by removing reaction-causing foods for at least 8 weeks. Some of the foods to remove include dairy products, soy-containing foods, grains, gluten, legumes, caffeine, shellfish, eggs and egg whites. When these damage-causing triggers have been discovered and removed, the body can begin to repair the damage to the intestinal wall which is a key step in restoring gut function.
