Leaky Gut: Causes and Treatment of Leaky Gut

  1. Normally, small food particles pass through the intestinal tract and into the bloodstream when humans digest food. Certain environmental factors and conditions such as some infections, toxins, stress and nutrition create larger openings in the intestinal wall, which leads to a leaky gut. As a result, many harmful substances and pathogens enter the body. The immune system attacks these invaders, causing inflammation and changes in the gut. A highly variable clinical picture is possible with this condition, such as psychological problems, skin problems and food allergies. A healthier lifestyle with a balanced diet, better sleep, quitting smoking and less stress will treat a leaky gut. Leaky gut is an unrecognized medical condition in October 2020, although alternative health care providers usually believe that a leaky gut is linked to various conditions.

Causes of leaky gut

  1. The intestinal wall forms a tight barrier that regulates what is absorbed into the bloodstream. The intestine acts as a kind of drawbridge. The gut is naturally semipermeable (semi-permeable) so that small food particles can pass through the intestinal tract and into the bloodstream during the digestion of food. Certain external factors, such as food, infections, toxins and stress, damage the tight junctions or small openings in the intestinal wall, causing the openings to enlarge. This results in a leaky gut. When the intestines leak, many toxins, microbes and undigested food particles enter the bloodstream. The immune system marks these 'foreign invaders' as pathogens and attacks them. This causes inflammation
