Leaky gut syndrome is a rapidly growing condition that millions of people are struggling with and dont even know it. From the sound of it, you might think leaky gutsyndromeonly affects the digestive system, but in reality it can lead to many other health conditions.

According to research, the cause of yourfood allergies, low energy, joint pain, thyroid disease, autoimmune conditions and slow metabolism could be leaky gut symptoms progression.

In this article, I will outline specifically how you can healleaky gut syndrome and break through thehealth problems youve been struggling with.

One of the biggest warning signs that you may have leaky gut I recommend thatyou take a leaky gut test can be that youre experiencing multiple food sensitivities. Partially digested protein and fat can seep through your intestinal lining, making their way into your bloodstream and causingan allergic response.

This allergic response doesnt mean youll break out in a rash all over your body, but it can lead to various symptoms:

If left un-repaired, it can lead to more severe health issues like inflammatory bowel disease, IBS, arthritis, eczema,psoriasis,depression, anxiety, migraine headaches, muscle pain and chronic fatigue.

According to the Journal of Diabetes, there is a strong body of evidence pointing to leaky gut syndrome as a major cause of autoimmune diseases, including type 1 diabetes. (1)

Another problem with leaky gut is that it can cause malabsorption of vital minerals and nutrients, includingzinc,iron and vitamin B12.

Lectins are found in many foods, not just grains, and consumed in smaller amounts, your body will do just fine with them. But foods that have large amounts of lectins are more problematic. Some of the lectins and foods that cause leaky gut include wheat, rice, speltand soy.

Sprouting and fermenting grains reduces phytates and lectins, making these foods easier to digest.GMO and hybridized foods tend to be the highest in lectins since they have been modified to fight off bugs.Also, gluten-containing grains may damage your intestinal lining and potentially causeleaky gut syndrome. Once your gut is healthy, you can add back in grains that have been fermented and sprouted to eat occasionally.

Conventional cows milkis another food that can cause leaky gut. The component of dairy that will harm your gut is the protein A1 casein. Also, the pasteurization process will destroy vital enzymes, making sugars like lactose very difficult to digest. For this reason, I only recommend buying raw dairy and from A2 cows, goats, sheep or buffalo.

Sugar is another substance that will wreak havoc on your digestive system. Sugar will feed the growth of yeast, candida and bad bacteria, which will further damage your gut.Bad bacteria actually creates toxins called exotoxins that damage healthy cells and can eat a hole into your intestinal wall.

The good news is theres a solution to successfully healingleaky gut. There is a four-step process that includes:

This is the protocol I used with my patients while practicing functional medicine that helped them see incredible results.

Its essential to remove allergens and inflammatory foods such asun-sprouted grains, added sugar, GMOs, refined oils, synthetic food additives and conventional dairy products. The top toxic exposures to eliminate are tap water, pesticides, NSAIDS and antibiotics but remember to always consult with your physician if he or she has prescribed these for you.

If you suffer from leaky gut syndrome, youre overdue to consider adoptinga leaky gut diet. Such a diet contains foods support healing because they are easy to digest and can help repair the lining of the intestines.

Here is the leaky gut diet food list:

Ina leaky gut treatment plan, there are many supplements that support your digestive health as well as protect the gut lining from further damage. I believe the six most beneficial leaky gut supplements are probiotics, digestive enzymes, l-glutamine, licorice root, shilajit and marshmallow root.
