What Causes Leaky Gut?

Unfortunately, most general practitioners assume that the symptoms I mentioned are caused by stress when the patient’s scopes come back clear. This in turn can allow the underlying conditions to worsen without the person realising it. 

When leaky gut persists for years, it can be one of the main catalysts for autoimmune illnesses. 

So how does leaky gut happen in the first place?

First, everyone has some level of leaky gut, because the gut has to be somewhat leaky for nutrients to get absorbed in the first place. However, when the gates are left open for too long or remain open all the time, that’s when problematic issues can arise. In fact, leaky gut is very common, but just because it’s common doesn’t mean it’s normal. And it can happen for a variety of reasons. This includes:

  1. Taking too much/many medications 
  2. Taking multiple rounds of antibiotics 
  3. Pesticides
  4. Lack of sleep
  5. Stress
  6. Toxins, or even 
  7. Having a food sensitivity that goes on diagnosed like a gluten sensitivity or allergy.
