Leaky Gut Syndrome – How to Plug the Leak />

Are you going round in circles trying to work out why you’re not feeling well? Are you suffering with a dry, itchy skin condition such as eczema or psoriasis, your allergies out of control and basically your autoimmune system is way out of whack?

You could be suffering because of the many health issues associated with leaky gut syndrome.  Your digestive tract is like a net that has lots of small holes in it that keep what shouldn’t go into your blood stream out. When those holes get bigger unfortunately gluten, bad bacteria and undigested food breaks out and starts to cause damage to your health.

The problem with leaky gut syndrome is it not only has seriously negative impact on your health, it has a massive effect on your quality of life.  This is hugely detrimental not only to your physical health, but also your mental health because you feel incredibly low, ill and tired.

As holistic health care professionals we know that the social impact is just as damaging as the physical impact; you don’t feel like going out and mixing with friends, you literally don’t have the energy to do anything that may even feel like fun and this vicious cycle seems to never end.  With leaky gut syndrome the leakage leading from the gut area is literally polluting your body and could be showing up in a number of different ways.
