Leaky Gut Syndrome

PRINT PAGE

Leaky gut syndrome is a condition in which the mucous lining of the small intestine becomes porous, allowing toxins, micro-organisms, and food particles to directly enter the bloodstream.

The function of the mucosal lining of the small intestine can be compared to that of a window screen, which lets air inside but keeps insects out. Every 3 to 5 days, the mucosal lining sloughs off a layer of cells and produces new cells to keep the lining semi-permeable. Factors such as stress and impaired digestion can lead to an excessively permeable membrane or “leaky gut”.

The most common symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome are:

  • food allergies
  • IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
  • eczema
  • psoriasis
  • pancreatic insufficiency
  • multiple chemical sensitivities

Leaky gut can also aggravate existing conditions such as:

  • fatigue
  • joint pain and muscle pain
  • fever
  • abdominal discomfort
  • diarrhea
  • skin rashes
  • memory deficit
  • shortness of breath
  • systemic inflammation
