What Is Leaky Gut Syndrome?

A leaky gut is a result of the gut lining becoming inflamed due to food intolerances, drug ingestion, bacterial and viral infections, and stress. The cells of the intestinal track are only ONE CELL THICK and can be damaged. Leaky gut syndrome happens when partially digested food, toxins, and bacteria pass through the small intestine and enter the bloodstream through spaces in the gut wall. Gaps in the gut wall allow tiny food particles and other foreign microbes to enter the body and create an immune system response that impacts the entire system including brain function. The damaged gut cells are then unable to do their job properly. They can't manufacture the enzymes that are vital to good digestion. This means proper digestion is impaired and the proper absorption of nutrients is effected. Damaging substances then invade the bloodstream. This can result in food intolerances, allergies, skin issues, joint inflammation, impaired brain function and it can also trigger autoimmune diseases. When the immune system becomes overburdened by toxins that enter the liver, the toxins are flushed back into the blood where they are sent to connective tissues and muscles.

Leaky gut syndrome is connected with allergies, autism, inflammatory bowel, Crohn’s disease, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, arthritis, pancreatic dysfunction, giardia parasite infections, irritable bowel syndrome, lupus - and many more conditions.

What Causes Leaky Gut Syndrome?

Many factors contribute to a person developing a leaky gut syndrome.  The will differ from person to person, but some combination of the following will be present:

  • Stress - chronic and repeated stress!

  • Alcoholic beverages

  • Antibiotics and other drugs

  • Bacteria - pathogenic - such as streptococcus or staphylococcus

  • Bacteria that is non-pathogenic, such as klebsiella or pseudomonas

  • Candida - yeast infection /overgrowth

  • Diets high in refined sugar

  • Diets low in fiber

  • Exposure to environmental toxins and pesticides

  • Heavy metal toxins including from vaccinations

  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (aspirin and ibuprofen)

  • Parasitic infections

  • Poor digestion

  • Inflammatory bowel disease

  • Vaccinations with heavy metals

  • Zinc deficiency

Leaky Gut Syndrome Symptoms
Whether or not leaky gut is the cause of various states of disease, or whether it indirectly exacerbates those conditions, we know that a variety of symptoms are associated with intestinal permeability. These leaky gut syndrome symptoms include:

  • Allergies - food and environmental

  • Anxiety

  • Bloating or flatulence

  • Candida (yeast overgrowth)

  • Diarrhea and constipation - This relates to irritation of the colon. Stagnant waste putrefies and an overgrowth of bacteria and parasites can occur.

  • Fatigue

  • Headaches

  • Impaired immune system function

  • Impaired memory - when the friendly and unfriendly bacteria in the gut. There are dangerous byproducts of the unfriendly bacteria, such as ammonia, that are detrimental to brain function.

  • Memory cognition and concentration are poor

  • Moodiness or irritability

  • Nutritional deficiencies

  • Skin rashes - The body's larges organ performs the job of eliminating toxins. Rashes may be related to the skin's ability to conduct detoxification.

The Gut's Protection Layers
There are 5 layers or barriers in the gut which are designed to protect us from our internal environment including ingested toxins, organisms and allergens:

  • 1st layer - FRIENDLY BACTERIA - the bulk of the content of our intestines (stool)
  • 2nd layer - MUCUS COATING - the ining the inside of the intestine
  • 3rd layer - GUT LINING CELLS  -   loss of tight junctions between these cells called enterocytes that is the main reason for a leaky gut
  • 4th layer - IMMUNE SYSTEM - which is concentrated in the extensive Peyer’s patches around the intestines
  • 5th layer – LIVER - which receives and processes everything which is absorbed via the intestines

About The Gut Micro-Flora
The intestines hols about 3.5 pounds of bacteria in a micro-flora community. Some of these bacteria are "friendly," and other bacteria create problems for the body. The “good" bacteria  enhance immunity, help to heal gut infections and they reduce the amount of toxic by-products in the bowel. The most important “good bacteria” are lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidobacterium. Lactobacilli (acidopholus) reside mostly in the upper small intestine.
Bifidobacteria prefer the lower small intestine and large intestine.

When friendly microflora attach themselves to the cell wall of our gut, they occupy valuable “real estate” so that unfriendly flora can’t move in. They establish themselves in the and do a very important job of 1.) producing of vitamins such as B12 and Folic acid. 2) synthesizing short chain fatty acids 3.) producing enzymes such as lactase to help us digest our food 4.) providing detoxification.

Any imbalance between the friendly microflora and unfriendly bacteria is called dysbiosis and means health issues can arise. An imbalance of microflora can contribute to:

Homeopathic Remedies For Leaky Gut Syndrome

  • Colocynthis
    Lower abdominal pains and cramping that cause one to double over into a ball; food and drink taste bitter; sensitivities to potatoes and starch; feels better from coffee.

  • Magnesia carbonica
    Sin smells sour; sour belching and vomiting of bitter water; eats all day; aversion to vegetables, green foods, green fruit; feels worse form dairy products, starches, potatoes, cabbage; thirsty at night craving for meat, fruit, acids, vegetables, bread and butter.

  • Nux vomica
    food sits like a rock in the stomach; indigestion; anger, irritability, rage; craves stimulants and alcohol; craves fats, bitter and spicy foods; coffee milk, beer and water don’t taste right.

Recommendations for Improving a Leaky Gut

  • Avoid Antibiotics!
    Antibiotics allow candida to thrive. Avoiding sugar and white starches will help to correct leaky gut syndrome. The sugars to avoid include fructose, honey, molasses, and simple carbohydrate/snack foods such as potatoes, chips, cakes, cookies, desserts, sodas, fruit-juice and ice-cream.

  • Diet Restrictions
    Eat natural, organic high fiber foods, including uncooked vegetables, whole grains, bran and legumes and low glycemic index foods.

    • Avoid Fermented foods: Avoid products that have been fermented or contain yeast. This includes alcohol, bread, soy sauce and vinegar.

    • Avoid fruit and fruit sugars: Avoid especially fruit juices until candida has been brought under control. Honey should also be avoided at the beginning of your anti-candida diet, then reintroduced later.

    • Avoid fungal foods: avoid Mushrooms and cheeses.

    • Avoid sugar: including fructose, honey, molasses and simple carbohydrate/snack foods such as potatoes, chips, cakes, cookies, desserts, sodas, fruit-juice and ice-cream.

    • Avoid white-starch foods: white bread, cakes, pasta (unless it’s whole grain), white rice, potatoes, and all refined flours.

    • Eat more Fiber

  • Digestive Enzymes

    • Digestive enzymes will help reduce symptoms associated with leaky gut syndrome.

    • Foods recommended for their enzyme content are pineapples, papaya, avocados, mangos and bananas.
      Sprouts are also a good source of digestive enzymes.
      Adults over age 50 often are deficient in important enzymes such as protease, lipase, and amylase.

    • Enzymes supplements can improve the absorption of nutrients from the gut and prevent partially digested proteins from being absorbed and overworking the liver.
       

  • Fish Oils and Essential Oils

    • Increase your consumption of essential oils.

    • Take supplements that contain fish oils, flax-seed oil, borage, and evening primrose oils.
       

  • Gut Repair For Candida, Parasites, Fungal and Other Infections
    These factors all contribute to leaky gut syndrome.  Candida is yeast-fungal organism that grows roots through your intestinal tract which are feed by the gut bacteria. These roots will compromise the intestinal lining and can cause leaky gut. Reducing candida will help restore and repair a leaky gut.

  • Probiotics

    • Probiotics are “friendly bacteria” that live in your intestines.

    • They  enhance immunity, help to heal gut infections, and they reduce the amount of toxic by-products in the bowel.

    • The most important good bacteria in your diet are lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidobacterium.

    • The ratio of good to "bad" bacteria should be 85% good.  When the 85% ratio of good-to-bad bacteria is not present, harmful bacteria outnumber the good and dysbiosis can occur. Symptoms of dysbiosis are poor digestion, flatulence, bloating and vomiting.

    • Probiotics help to treating digestive problems like dysbiosis, leaky gut syndrome, and various harmful intestinal bugs.
      Probiotics inhibit the colonization of yeast and fungus, so they are useful for treating candida, a frequent component of leaky gut.

    • Lactobacillus helps us to digest proteins and helps us to absorb vital nutrients.

    • When antibiotic use has damaged the intestinal flora, probiotic supplementation is especially helpful in helping to restore the gut to a health balance of friendly vs. harmful bacteria. This balance that promotes gut lining health by decreasing intestinal permeability.
