What Are The Signs And Symptoms Of Leaky Gut Syndrome
Greetings. Eric Bakker, naturopath from NewZealand, author Candida Crusher. I've got a question here from a guy in the States.I'm not going to mention his name. He wanted to stay anonymous. He's asking me Eric, whatare the signs and symptoms of leaky gut syndromeé The signs and symptoms, there could be a tonof them. I've done a few tutorials on leaky gut, and I did one just before basically on howdo you know that you've got leaky guté What are some of the conditions that are obviouswith ité The most common signs and symptoms of leakygut syndrome are gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, IBS, irritable bowel syndrome.These are very common ones. There are tons
of them. You can get digestive discomfortwith leaky gut. And a common place to get it is anywhere around here where the smallintestine is. Anywhere around this region, it's centrally. The large intestine tendsto be more the perimeter and the small intestine tends to be more central. Anywhere central.This is why people with parasites tend to have more of a sensation around the umbilicalcord because that is really a central part of the small intestine. And parasites, inmy opinion, especially acute parasite infections, tend to favor the small intestine, particularlythe center of it, the ileum. But when you've got leaky gut, you could alsofeel sensations a little bit higher up. And
they can be here sometimes. You could almostthink you've got heartburn. Leaky gut doesn't usually radiate any pain toward the back likea gall bladder pain or pancreatic pain will. It tends to be more frontal. And it can besomething like bloating, gas, or having to undo your waistband after a meal. Generally,you're not going to get pains off to the side as I mentioned because that's generally morecolon or large intestine dysfunction. It will be a central kind of disturbance.For the lesser known complaints with leaky gut can be things like brain fog, itchy skin,sore joints, seasonal allergies, immune dysfunction, insomnia, there can be a whole raft of differentthings that signal leaky gut syndrome. Remember,
what we're doing with leaky gut is we're allowingundigested food particles to enter into the bloodstream or potentially Candida or celldebris or all sorts of rubbish that really should be digested properly and filtered throughthe microvilli. But they're bypassing the microvilli, getting in through the intracellularjunctions, and challenging immune system. When we challenge the immune system, therecould be a myriad of complaints that could be possible. Thyroid dysfunction, autoimmunedisease, diabetes, all sort of conditions can occur as a result long term. Leaky gutis something that you really want to fix up in the early stages rather than let it buildup over a 10, 20, or 30 year period when it
gets seriously bad.Imagine you've got a small amount of rot in a roof of a house. In fact, my house thatI'm living in now, this is the rebuilt section, but old house up the front here. I've gota 100year old cottage. We built this extension on. But when we put a whole new roof overthe lot, we found so much rot in the roof of the old house. It cost me a fortune toget all the new beams replaced. Had that been repaired a long, long time ago, maybe 30,40 or 50 years ago, it would have been quite cheap. But now, it was in the tens of thousandsof dollars to repair that damage. Because the damage just continued on and on. And ifthe damage would have continued on for many
more years, the whole roof would have hadto be replaced, all the timber at a huge cost. Now, your digestive system is like that. Ifyou don't fix something up now when you've got a bit of gas or a bit of bloating or afew headaches or aches or pains, you can imagine what will happen if you leave that undisturbedfor 20, 30 or 40 years. Those are the functional complaints that end up becoming autoimmunediseases and even cancer. Lots of people laugh and joke when they pass gas, they fart, butwhat they don't realize is that this condition if it gets serious and long term, it's goingto be a major problem. And then there is no more laughing. Then there is crying. A stitchin time saves nine.
gt;gt;Tana: Hi, I'm Tana Amen. Thank you forjoining me on Ask Tana. This question comes from Kelly Patterson and she asks, â€œWhatis your opinion on the relationship of gluten to conditions such as fibromyalgia, ADHD andanxietyé And she says she has all of these. First of all, the word gluten means glue andit's a sticky protein found in wheat, barley, rye, kamut, bulger, and spelt and it givesbread its elasticity and its chewy texture. It's found in most baked products as well.Part of the problem is that it wreaks havoc in your intestinal lining causing leaky gutwhich allows a whole bunch of stuff that should be staying inside your intestines to get out.When the body sees these foreign invaders
that are supposed to be in your poop floatingfree in your body, it freaks out and launches a fullfledged battle in the form of allergiesand autoimmune disorders. Obviously, I'm really simplifying this because I don'twant to bore you with the many hours of science that I had to sit through but gluten is associatedwith celiac disease, type 1 diabetes, Hashimoto and thyroid disease, fibromyalgia, MS andmigraines. Gluten can also trigger flulike symptoms and many psychological disturbances.Our society thinks of bread, especially whole grain bread, as being healthy and a stapleof life. And I know, I know, Jesus ate bread. People can't wait to lay that one on me.But the wheat that Jesus says does not resemble
anything of the hybridized wheat of today,at all, which contains 40% more gluten than just from 50 years ago. The number of peoplewith celiac disease has quadrupled in the past 50 years, and according to the Centerfor Celiac Research, an additional 18 million Americans have glutensensitivity. Althoughglutensensitivity does not qualify as celiac disease, when people who are sensitive togluten eat foods with gluten they experience celiaclike symptoms and it's hiding inplain sight but most restaurants will accommodate your needs if you ask for a special menu.Thanks for the question.
How to Overcome Autoimmune Disease
Hey guys, Axe here, of naturalmedicine and founder of DrAxe . In this tutorial, I'm going to do an advancedtraining on how to overcome autoimmune disease. I'll talk about my five steps to overcomeautoimmune disease with natural treatments, diet, supplements, essential oils and much,much more in this training tutorial. First off, autoimmune disease can affect manydifferent area of your body. Conditions such as lupus, fibromyalgia, rheumatoidarthritis, different types of inflammatory bowel diseaseall of these issues can beconnected to autoimmune disease. Hashimoto's thyroiditis can affect your thyroidand many other tissues and organs.
What happens in autoimmune disease is yourbody's own immune system starts to attack your own cells and tissues. So, what we have to do in order to beat andreverse autoimmune disease is we have to reduce inflammation and help modulate and balanceout your body's immune response. The number one step to start overcoming autoimmunedisease is to remove certain things from your diet. So, foods that cause an inflammatory reaction. . . I really believe 100% of autoimmune disease starts in your gut lining with a conditioncalled leaky gut.
That occurs when you have microscopic holesin your gut lining. Imagine your gut lining as a net in betweenyour intestines and your bloodstream. Well, that net can get rips and tears in itto where then certain things such as gluten, toxins, bad bacteria get into your bloodstreamover time if they stay in there. Your body will not only attack them. Often times it will start to affect and attackthe other tissues and cells within your own body. So, number one step is reduce the intake offoods that cause inflammation.
Number one is going to be sugar. If you're consuming processed sugar, it causesthe overgrowth of yeast in the body, which actually eats away at the gut lining causingleaky gut, which in turn causes autoimmune disease over time. Number two, hydrogenated oils or consumingtoo many omega6 fatty acids. That causes inflammation in the body. Also gluten and casein, so consuming wheat,bread and dairy products on a regular basis will absolutely cause inflammation in thebody.
Last but not least, overconsuming grains,and I'm talking about even whole grains, can cause inflammation in your body. So, for a time, if you have autoimmune disease,one of the big things you typically want to do is go grainfree for a period of time orat least consume grains that have been sprouted and slowcooked for a long time like a wildsprouted rice that you cook and make into kanji. That's okay for some people but in generalwith autoimmune disease, you want to go grain free for a time.
And then last here, any additivesfood colorings,artificial sweeteners, any type of packaged foodyou typically want to stay away fromor processed food or fast foods with autoimmune disease. The key there is reducing inflammation. Then what we want to do step number two iswe want to transform your diet and start consuming foods that help heal your cells and tissuesand help reduce inflammation. The number one food group is going to be cookedvegetables. With autoimmune disease, you typically don'twant to do a lot of raw foods.
