Leaky Gut?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Folks,

I hope someone can tell me about leaky gut symdrome to include:

How would I know if I had it?

What would I do about it?

Could it be the cause of my flu-like symptoms (stay-in-bed exhaustion without the sniffles, sneezes, fever)?

Thanks,

- Henry

Well, I guess malabsorption would go along with a leaky gut, though perhaps less often the other way around. So in that case you'd be passing somewhat undigested food. Magnesium is rather important for proper absorption, so that's one thing I'd suggest for any Celiac.

For symptoms, I'd have to think it depends on the foods you eat, and what you are more sensitive to. The toxins which get into your system could cause all sorts of things, so IMHO yes the flu-like symptoms could be from that.

I think all allergies and sensitivities would probably be heightened. That's my two cents.

There really aren't necessarily any symptoms. But getting autoimmune diseases might be one of the results of it.

What I know off the top of my head about it:

How to help prevent it/heal it:

Get all foods out of your system that you 'have a problem with' - do a proper elimination diet.

DO NOT take ANY NSAIDS - non-steroidal anti-inflammatories - they help to create the too-permeable to large food molecules (from non-fully digested foods) intestinal lining that IS 'leaky gut'

Drink less alcohol

Get enough 'pro-biotics'

Use digestive enzymes

Don't use antibiotics unless absolutely necessary

I definitely had leaky gut before I was diagnosed. It was horrible feeling. It really feels like something is leaking inside of you.
