Leaky Gut Syndrome

Leaky gut syndrome or (increased intestinal permeability) is a condition that develops when the mucous lining of the small intestine becomes too porous, allowing entry of toxins, micoorganisms and undigested food particles, as well as pathogens, into the blood stream. Drugs such as NSAIDs (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, like aspirin and Motrin), antiacids, steroids (prednisone and hydrocortisone) and antibiotics are some of the biggest contributers to leaky gut syndrome. The long-term effects of leaky gut syndrome can be the development of autoimmune disease in which the body attacks its own tissues. They can include the following:
  • Lupus
  • Alopecia areata
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Polymyalgia
  • Multiple sclerosis rheumatica
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic Fatigue syndrome
  • Celiac disease
  • Vitiligo syndrome
  • Thyroiditis
  • Vasculitis
  • Crohn's disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Diabetes
  • Psoriasis
  • Utricaria (hives)
