LEAKY GUTS!? 🤭 Sounds scary, right? According to research, your increasing food sensitivities, low energy, joint pain and autoimmune conditions are likely caused by a leaky gut!
But what is a leaky gut and how does it happen?
You should start to think of the gut as being the barrier that protects us from the outside world. Within the digestive tract, we have our 'gut-associated immune system', which is designed to allow proper and completely digested food particles, such as amino acids, fatty acids and simple sugars to pass unhindered through the gut wall into the body while preventing unwanted or harmful materials from passing through.
When we load our gut with damaging food, drink, medications and chemicals from the outside world several times a day, our gut's intestinal cells become inflamed. This causes the integrity of our defence system to suffer and allows and unwanted substances such as undigested food particles to make their way into the bloodstream. ♀️This is what is termed "leaky gut" or increased intestinal permeability, and triggers an immune reaction, eventually resulting in allergies and autoimmunity.
Do you suffer from autoimmune conditions such as Colitis, Crohn's, Rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, Celiac Disease, Psoriasis, Lupus, Type 1 Diabetes or Raynaud's disease? You should also know that approximately 70% of your immune system resides in your gut!
The key to managing immune conditions such as autoimmunity is healing the gut.
This is why I created my Digestive Healing Guide to Managing Autoimmunity.
This ebook guide is a complete blueprint for digestive healing to nourish your immune system and provide you with relief from your autoimmune condition(s). It combines the latest evidence-based research on auto-immune conditions and gut health as we examine how dietary, supplemental and lifestyle factors can contribute to your immune health and wellbeing.
I highly suggest this guide for anyone suffering autoimmune conditions. Link in bio or DM me for more info
