Leaky Gut Syndrome – What is it?

What is “Leaky Gut”?

Known by doctors by its technical term, “intestinal permeability, this condition can encourage Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, irritable syndrome(IBS), and other intestinal ailments in the IBD category. “Leaky gut” is a condition caused by inflammation of the gut lining. According to Andrew Weil, M.D.,

“Leaky gut syndrome is not generally recognized by conventional physicians, but evidence is accumulating that it is a real condition that affects the lining of the intestines. The theory is that leaky gut syndrome(also called increased intestinal permeability), is the result of damage to the intestinal lining, making it less able to protect the internal environment as well as to filter needed nutrients and other biological substances. As a consequence, some bacteria and their toxins, incompletely digested proteins and fats, and waste not normally absorb may ‘leak’ out of the intestines into the blood stream. This triggers an autoimmune reaction, which can lead to gastrointestinal problems such as abdominal bloating, excessive gas and cramps, fatigue, food sensitives, joint pain, skin rashes, and autoimmunity. The cause of this syndrome may be chronic inflammation, food sensitivity, damage from taking large amounts of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs(NSAIDS), cyotoxic drugs and radiation or certain antibiotics, excessive alcohol consumption, or compromise immunity.” (1)

How does Leaky Gut Occur?

Leaky Gut Syndrome happens when there are changes in the lining of the bowel that increases the permeability of the intestine. Actually, the lining of the gut forms a barrier. Under normal circumstances it only allows food that is digested properly i.e. all proteins, fats and carbohydrates, to pass through and enter into the bloodstream.

This lining is harmed by several things – it could be affected by pathogenic bacteria, or by taking aspirin, or even by the the pesticides that are constantly sprayed on all our food. It loses it’s integrity and for this reason, the barrier is no longer efficient and it lets in undigested food, pathogenic or bad bacteria, viruses and parasites.

This, in turn, sends signals to the immune system, leads to hyperstimulation and causes release of the inflammatory substances called cytokines. These weaken the intestinal wall. Sometimes the compromised immune system becomes so unstable that it attacks your own body, producing an autoimmune condition.

Symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome

When you suffer with Leaky Gut Syndrome, there are a wide variety of symptoms to consider, not only ones that relate to the digestive system. The symptoms that are associated with Leaky Gut affect the body’s functioning as a whole:

  • abdominal pain, gas, indigestion, constipation or diarrhea, bloating 
  • fatigue
  • poor libido 
  • asthma, shortness of breath
  • chronic joint pain, chronic muscle pain 
  • confusion, fuzzy/foggy thinking, nervousness, poor immunity, poor memory
  • recurrent vaginal infections, skin rashes
  • bed-wetting, recurrent bladder infections  
  • aggressive behavior, anxiety 
  • and most importantly, just feeling “toxic”

Leaky gut syndrome is associated with the following medical conditions:

  • Bloating and weight gain
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Intestinal infections
  • Celiac disease
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Giardia

It is very important to identify the problem of Leaky Gut Syndrome before it gets out of hand, so that you can quickly address the issue with natural supplements that help to heal the lining of the digestive tract. This includes, effective probiotics in loading doses, enzymes, glutamine, green foods to encourage an alkaline intestinal environment and essential fatty acids to help maximize digestive function.
