We Treat the Cause, Not the Symptoms

Understanding Leaky Gut Syndrome

Millions of you could have it and not know. The symptoms: rashes, joint pain, bloating, gas, exhaustion…sound familiar? The conditions: IBS, Diverticulosis, Crohn’s Disease, Colon Polyps, Ulcerative Colitis, Celiac Disease … Is that you? Most doctors have never heard of it. You may be dealing with a Permeable Gut or most commonly known as “Leaky Gut”

The Digestive and The Genetics Connection

At Imagine Wellness Centre, we provide education and the specific testing to identify the root causes of the dysfunction instead of chasing symptoms. We look into the role your genetics plays in your digestive dysfunction. We check the genome, from the genome, we check the mutations that affect the digestive system, specifically in the intestinal flora. There is a specific gene you may have that has mutated from your parents, which gave the deficiencies in your intestinal flora. Intestinal flora is the good bacteria that protects your gut, and helps break down food and bacteria. Without good intestinal flora, leaky gut may become an issue. Millions of people may have leaky gut and not even know it. The symptoms include: rashes, joint pain, bloating, gas, exhaustion, etc. If these problems originate from your genetics and it goes unchecked, you may never be able to address the problem at the root cause.

Intestinal permeability occurs when the lining of the digestive tract becomes permeable (leaky) to toxins or undigested food particles causing chronic inflammation. This inhibits the intestinal lining’s ability to protect the internal environment, and filter nutrients and other biological substances. Intestinal permeability allows toxins to leak out of the digestive tract and into the bloodstream. This triggers an autoimmune reaction that can create pain and inflammation in any of the body’s tissues.

 

The main causes of permeability is the use of anti-inflammatory medications, steroids, antibiotics, antihistamines, caffeine, alcohol, etc. Stress also is a major factor in leaky gut syndrome, since the excessive production of cortisol promotes the damage to the intestinal lining.
