Cause Of Leaky Gut?

8 posts in this topic

I was watching Christina Pirello, formerly of Christina Cooks on her new cooking show.  She was talking about GMO foods.  She said that they found that when bugs ate GMO corn, their stomachs exploded.  She said upon further investigation with humans, when they eat GMO foods, their stomachs do not explode but get minor spots of damage sort of like cracks or lesions and then the food that we eat can leak out.  I can't remember exactly how she phrased it but it sure sounded like leaky gut to me!

I gotta disagree with that. If gmo was truly the cause, then the majority of the USA would be suffering from leaky gut. Clearly there its something more at play.

The most implicated cause of leaky gut is gluten consumption, when eating by those genetically sensitive. For more info, google zonullin and gluten connection.

Bt corn kills corn borers by interacting with a bacteria in the gut of the corn borer which then kills it. If that bacteria isn't present the corn borer doesn't die, but that bacteria is pretty much always present in them.

 

If you include rates of 'new' diseases like IBS, depression, anxiety, Crohn's, fibromyalgia and CFS (the last 2 have research that strongly suggests gut bacteria getting into the bloodstream as a cause) there's definitely SOMETHING causing it. I would not be surprised is Bt corn or some other food alteration were an important factor. Right now though I'm pretty sure no conclusive evidence exists, and a lot of it is speculation.

 

I think all celiacs diagnosed via biopsy will have leaky guts though anyways, as stri8ed says, and it because of celiac disease. I suspect that that's why so many of us can live so long with super damaged villi myself...there's no active transport of nutrients, but the gut just lets everything in.

gluten (increases zonulin production, zonulin dissolves gut cell junctions)

yeast (candida) when it mutates to mushroom form

antibiotics, NSAIDs

....

and what is to say the majority of the USA is not suffering from leaky gut???

It would truly  surprise me if the majority of people that consume GMO on a regular  basis  did not have leaky gut

Very simple. If you look at the studies done on leaky gut and celiac desease, you will find that the control group made up of randomly selected people, always displays a much lower and normal range of intestinal permeability (leaky gut) than the celiac patients.

 

So its easy to see, that the general population in spite of eating GMO on a daily basis, still exhibit normal healthy & levels of intestinal permeability.

Initially leaky gut onset is because of candida/gluten/NSAIDS/antibiotics/vaccines.

 

When your gut is aready leaky, then things that do harm you:

lectins (all main groups + GMO)

oxalates

Because those should not normally be present in the bloodstream, but with leaky gut they are.

 

This explains why GMO/lectins/high oxalate foods are non problematic  to those who have healthy gut, but are very harmful for those with leaky gut

    • Allergy or Preference? Waiter asks
      At my local Five Guys, I told the counter guy that I had to avoid gluten for medical reasons. I was ordering a burger with no bun and some fries. He yelled back "Allergy Alert!" and every line cook immediately changed gloves and cleaned their work space. Will I go back? You bet I will!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The office is located in another city than where I go. There is no receptionist at the location closest to me meaning patients wait for the doctor to open her closed door to call their names for a consult. So, I would have to knock on her door which would really make her say that I'm sick since I keep writing letters AND showing up in person. The main office is too far for me to travel with road construction going on for the remainder of the year. I suppose I could mail the letter instead. But the staff is very irresponsible so it might be thrown away. The doctor probably told them that nothing needed correction in my records so ignore further requests from me. The other staff member I dealt with seemed normal, but I complained to the doctor about the staff member I dealt with today when she failed to update my phone number that I gave to her a few times (and which she said she updated), which resulted in me showing up for an appointment (I traveled a distance) one of the testers thought she canceled by leaving voicemail for phone number I no longer had. What I mean is I told the doctor that the staff member said she updated my phone number when the doctor asked me why I was there when I showed up for that cancelled appointment. Unfortunately, this staff member answers the phone most of the time. I'm sure she did what she could to make me look bad to the doctor to make her look good because I complained about her. I feel like scheduling an appointment with a psychologist to tell her what happened with this name calling. I'm sure it's against therapist code or I'd like a psychologist's feedback on this doctor's behavior. There are other patient complaints about her on the Internet how she laughs at patient's pain and suffering. I feel that's how she treated me. Update: The staff member called me back to tell me the doctor amended my report and she put it in the mail. I wonder if the doctor discussed what she said to me with another doctor who told her what she did was unacceptable in the medical field. I am hoping my report is amended or new negative comments are not added by the doctor to say I keep writing her letters or something in that regard.

      The letter I am suggesting has nothing to do with the doctor.  I would type it and walk it to the desk when are in the building for your other appointment. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Thanks. I'm not sure if the doctor will read another email I send and that's the way I'm told by staff to contact her. It will just confirm that I keep writing her letters although I only sent her one email about it! I already told the staff and her that I didn't want my medical records sent to any doctor's office, but I don't know if they will do it out of spite. It was scary talking to this doctor because she wouldn't listen or let me get a word in...I guess that's the reason why I feel the need to raise my voice at this office. When I requested a Lyme disease prescription from another doctor years ago before I knew I had celiac disease, this ignorant doctor told me not to come back to his office because there's no such thing as Lyme disease so only crazy people think they have it. I thought that was the worst experience I had with a doctor, but this experience was worse. I mean this neuropsychiatrist kept calling me a sick person over and over. It's so scary dealing with doctors like this. I really don't know how many other doctors may have wrote in my records that my symptoms are all in my head because celiac disease isn't real.   And my neurologist said this neuropsychiatrist was great. Maybe he says that about all the doctors he refers to patients to? I don't know if you call her personality psychopath since she appeared really nice during my consult, but she was thinking all this negative s*** in her mind at the time or different than she appeared to be.
    • Nature's Bounty Protein & Vitamin Shake Mix
      Sort of funny.  Says no wheat at the bottom but also says this " Other Ingredients: Proprietary Protein Blend (Soy Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate), Cocoa (processed with alkali), Inulin, Oat Fiber, Fructose, Natural Flavors, Maltodextrin, Soy Lecithin, Tricalcium Phosphate, Xanthan Gum. Contains milk and soy ingredients. Contains wheat ingredients.   I bet they do not use gluten free oats, so its a bit of a gamble.  Not one a Celiac should take as there is no such thing as "not severe Celiac".  Even if you don't feel the damage, consuming gluten will start damaging you.  Maybe its just catching up with you.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
