Naturally Nourished Episode 24: Leaky Gut

May 5, 2016

From stomach aches, gas, and bloating to auto-immune disease and hormonal imbalnace: many diseases that may seem unrelated to the gut often start there! In this Episode Ali will walk you through common causes of leaky gut for prevention as well as an RRR gut restoration protocol to treat it!

Leaky gut or intestinal permeability  is when large protein molecules escape into the bloodstream. This triggers a chain of events where the body actually  mounts an immune response and attacks molecules, thinking that they are “invaders” since they are outside of the intestinal tract where they belong. Studies show that these attacks play a role in the development of autoimmune diseases. 

The main culprits as to why this “leaking” occurs  are foods, infections, and toxins. Gluten is the number one cause of leaky gut! In this Episode, Ali will discuss many other reasons why people experience leaky gut gut so often as well as the most common signs and symptoms including: dermatitis, season allergies/asthma, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and more!
