Stomach Conditions

Leaky Gut Syndrome (LGS) is a condition that involves damage of the lining of the intestinal tract causing incompletely digested nutrients, toxins, bacteria, and wastes to “leak” through the intestines and flood the blood stream. The foreign substances entering the blood can cause an autoimmune response in the body.  The symptoms may seem completely unrelated to the gut.  Because damaged cells in the intestines may fail to produce the enzymes needed for proper digestion, absorption of essential nutrients is compromised creating further imbalance throughout the body that can contribute to various issues including hormone imbalance and a weakened immune system.

When substances leak out of the intestines, the liver is forced to work extra hard to filter them out of the blood stream. The extra burden on the liver can result in the accumulation of fatty liver tissue. Some toxins may be sent back into the blood stream when the liver’s ability to detoxify fails, where they reach muscles and connective tissues.

Leaky Gut Syndrome isn’t typically diagnosed in western medicine, but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t be affecting your health. Many health issues related to LGS go undiagnosed, misdiagnosed or are ignored by traditional medicine. Patients are left with frustrating and uncomfortable symptoms and no answers.

TREATMENT:

Treatment is geared at finding the triggering mechanism (what the gut /immune system are fighting against).  There may be one or multiple triggers that are sending your health in a tailspin.  All the triggers need to be identified.  Triggering mechanisms may include:

  1. Food sensitivities
  2. Infections (bacterial, yeast, viral, fungal)
  3. Environmental toxins

Testing may be required to correctly identify certain triggers.  Once they are identified, a plan needs to be put together to remove them as well as restore normal physiology.
