Leaky Gut And Heart Palpitations

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.

Adrenal Fatigue Related Health Conditions

This is Lam. Adrenal Fatiguerelated healthconditions can be broadly classified into five main areas. First, we have metabolicsystem imbalances. Now, anybody with severe Adrenal Fatigue will be able to tell you thatthey have a problem maintaining their blood sugar at a level that is very, very steady.Part of the reason is because hypoglycemia is commonly associated with Adrenal Fatigue,even though, if you measure the blood level of the sugar, it is considered normal andnot considered low. This is normally due to a combination of low cortisol and a high insulinlevel when the body is under stress. The normal stress response by the adrenal gland is toincrease the blood sugar level. However, glucose

release is slowed as the output of cortisolreduces during later stages of Adrenal Fatigue, such as what happens in adrenal exhaustion.Hypoglycemia itself is a significant stress on the entire body, especially on the adrenal,so you have a vicious cycle that goes on. While this can be overcome by sugar fixesinitially, in mild Adrenal Fatigue – and that's why people take CocaCola, or PepsiCola, or pop drinks, as well as donuts or juices to give themselves that little boost,this is only a quick fix, and usually the symptoms will come back after only a shorttime, usually within one or two hours. This cycle, if it continues, this will make theperson more drained, and towards the end of

the day, the person will feel nearly exhausted,without having done anything. Low blood sugar is usually most likely to occur, therefore,around 10 AM and 2 PM, as well as from 34 PM. Hypoglycemia is also related to the autonomicnervous system dysfunction, which we will describe later. Secondly, we have a musculoskeletalsystem breakdown. Now, collagen and protein are broken down in a catabolic state of functionduring Adrenal Fatigue. This can lead to chronic pain syndromes, joint pain, chronic fatigue,and fibromyalgia. It must be remembered that the glucocorticoids, primarily cortisol, aresteroidal hormones produced by the adrenal glands as a response to stress. Cortisol outputis high in stage 1 and stage 2, and then as

the Adrenal Fatigue progresses, the cortisoloutput often is pushed to the limit, and then finally goes down. As cortisol goes up, oneof the side effects of this hormone is the breakdown of protein, resulting in an overallnet catabolic state, meaning the amount of buildup of the muscle is less than the amountof breakdown, so as a result, broken down muscles are not adequately replaced. Collagenis broken down without significant replenishment. Outwardly, wrinkles start to develop as prematureaging sets in. Internally, organs and muscle breakdowns tends to lead to chronic muscleand joint pains of unknown origin, especially after strenuous exercise or heavy lifting.Adrenal Fatigue therefore is often associated

with poor ability to digest protein, as wellas the gastrointestinal systems tend to slow down. This will only add to the musculoskeletalpain and syndromes. It should come, therefore, as no surprise that that secondary fibromyalgiaand chronic fatigue are commonly associated with adrenal exhaustion. Third, we go intoneurological system dysfunctions, and this can be divided into various categories. BecauseAdrenal Fatigue can lead to insomnia, sleep disturbances, brain fog, anxiety and depressionif the central nervous system is involved. Peripheral nervous system dysfunction is oftenassociated with orthostatic hypertension, dizziness, lightheadedness, temperature intolerance,fainting spells, tingling and numbness sensation

of extremities, as well as sweating disregulation.First we talked about central nervous system imbalances. When you have imbalances of theadrenal gland, then what starts to happen is you have sleep disorders. Both too highand too low nighttime cortisol level can cause sleep disturbances. Waking up between 13AM is a characteristic of low blood sugar during this time, as well as cortisol imbalances.Sometimes it is accompanied by nightmares, sudden onset of heart palpitations, anxietyattacks, and cold sweats. Chronic lack of sleep is strongly associated with decreasedimmunity, as well, and impaired glucose intolerance, as well as the decreased alertness and concentration.Cortisol, DHEA, testosterone, and estrogen

7 Adrenal Fatigue Recovery Mistakes

This is Lam. The seven most common mistakesin Adrenal Fatigue recovery are: No. 1: Improper use of nutritional supplements. Natural compoundsare very different from prescription drugs, al behaviors of prescription drugs areusually welldefined and follow a curve that is highly predictable and highly researched.Compare this with natural compounds, you will find there are significant differences. Numberone, many natural compounds have different dosedependent behaviors, and in other words,how they behave at one dose can be very different from how they behave at another dose. So 100mg. of 1 item may behave differently than 500 mg. of another item. This does not meanthat it is better, it can sometimes be worse.

Number two, the exact standardization of whatis considered a normal dose is not well known, so therefore, is unsure what is the exactdosage for a certain nutrients and it is therefore body specific rather than the ability to havea standardized dosage. Number three, most compounds have little or no recognizable sideeffect at doses many times an RDA dose. But because many people tend to follow the RDA,which is quite low, the tendency therefore is to be underdosing themselves. Number four,few studies have been conducted in the toxic consequences of many natural compounds dueto funding constraints. As a result, this contributes to even less standardization.Number five, some natural compounds, especially

herbs and glandulars, can behave differentlyin the same person, depends on that person's state of dysfunction. For example, those withmild Adrenal Fatigue may do well with these herbs, which tend to be organic, however,if you have Adrenal Fatigue in advanced stage, they may behave as stimulants. The optimumtherapeutic dose is required, for each person's recovery is body specific. In other words,the right dose for one person can be very different from another person and in fact,can be toxic. Furthermore, there's dramatic differences in the availability of nutrientsmade available to the selfdependent on the delivery system. Nutrients delivered by justa regular tablet or by liquid or by liposomal

forms are very, very different in terms ofabsorption from the gut into the bloodstream and ultimately delivered to the cell. Lastly,different manufacturers use different natural compounds and lowquality nutritional supplementsare usually less effective than higher quality one. Because of the lack of this knowledgein the general public, inappropriate use of nutritional supplements is rampant in allparts of natural health. In the case of Adrenal Fatigue, it's especially dangerous becauserecovery not only can be impeded, but it can also be worse. No. 2: An experienced healthcareprovider can contribute to a slow recovery. Most conventional physicians are not wellinformed of Adrenal Fatigue because they are

not taught in medical school. Dysfunctionsof adrenal glands therefore have wide influence with the symptoms that often defy conventionalmedical logic because a person usually complains with so many symptoms, including fatigue,insomnia, hypoglycemia, heart palpitations, salt cravings, sugar cravings, joint pain,sore muscles, exercise intolerance—this is basically very, very difficult for a personto sort it out if they don't have the alert of Adrenal Fatigue. However, these symptomscan be explained under the unified umbrella of Adrenal Fatigue when conventional medicinehas exhausted all investigative tools, and fortunately, because most s are notwell versed in Adrenal Fatigue, this is a

process they seldom embark on. Instead, symptomaticapproach or suppression of symptoms, such as using energy, stimulating compounds withdrugs, as well as thyroid medications and hormones are used and this usually makes thingsworse over time, although it can have temporary benefit. No. 3: The excessive use of prescriptiondrugs and medication is a big problem because they can make the Adrenal Fatigue worse. Inthe case of Adrenal Fatigue, we should expect and respect the body's signs and symptoms,as they are valuable sensitive indicators, instead of suppressing them. If you suppressedthe symptoms, the body's not going to be able to signal you and instead, the body isbeing pushed to generate more energy, when
