Many of us think that doctors know all the syndromes. However, leaky gut syndrome is excluded from most of our doctors’ knowledge. This is because some health professionals do not consider this syndrome as a major health concern.
For the record, leaky gut syndrome, also called increased intestinal permeability, is a case of inflamed and irritated intestinal lining. Because of this, the intestines cannot properly function, thus resulting to damaged intestinal walls. This will result to toxins such as fungi, undigested food particles and fat being leaked into the bloodstream.
The body responds to this as an autoimmune action. A person may experience allergic reaction to food because of the leakage. The body will first attack some food particles and when the same food is taken, it automatically categorizes it as an enemy, thus responding to the food again.
The immune system also has the tendency to be overworked due to the constant autoimmune response. An overworked immune system would cause to a person’s exhaustion, tiring sleep, poor digestion and lack of focus to name some. Seventy percent of it is located inside and near the digestive system and this is called the gut-associated lymphatic tissues or simply GALT.
The tissues can be found in the intestinal mucus and digestive tract linings. It is also believed that the naturally occurring autoimmune response of the body leads to symptoms of leaky gut syndrome. Among these symptoms are abdominal bloating, cramps and excess gas.
Leaky gut syndrome also shows apparent symptoms outside the digestive tract. More often than not, people suffering from the syndrome also experience periodic vaginal and bladder infections, as well as intolerance to gluten, fibromyalgia, chronic muscle and joint pains, bed wetting, skin rashes, pancreatitis and worse, cancer.
When diagnosed to have leaky gut syndrome, you should immediately do some necessary actions to fight the syndrome and its adverse effects to the body. For most people, regulating what they eat is the best and most effective way to fight leaky gut syndrome.
Some foods are just not good for the body especially those who suffer from the said syndrome, thus must avoid fruits like strawberries, grapes, bananas, apples and other citrus fruits. In addition, dairy products and food containing yeast must be avoided to shun the unwanted syndrome.
Caffeine, carrots, chocolates, spinach, peanuts, lettuce, figs, pumpkin seeds, wild and brown rice and apricots should also be added to the “not to eat” list. Take note that food started the leaky gut syndrome thus food regulation must also be done.
