What Foods are Right for Me?
Leaky Gut Syndrome (i.e. intestinal permeability) occurs when the lining of your small intestines becomes damaged and tiny food particles are able to pass through microscopic cracks that form. Healthy intestines should not leak but they can easily damage and tear apart if they are exposed to foods that cause them to become inflamed. Once food passes to the outside of the intestines and into the blood stream, it causes an immune reaction around your body which is known as Leaky Gut Syndrome.
Leaky Gut Syndrome is one of the most common causes of weight gain, fatigue, low energy, foggy brain, and sleep problems. Food particles in the blood stream confuse the immune system and those confused armies of white blood cells are associated with the on-set of auto-immune conditions. It has been proven that the majority of people with auto-immune disease suffer from Leaky Gut including: including Hashimotos Thyroid, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Diabetes Type 2 and Lupus.

Did you know that Leaky Gut is a common cause of weight gain?
A leaky gut leads to daily bouts of inflammation that spreads throughout your body making cells and organs sick. One of the most common symptoms is weight gain which occurs in a majority of people who suffer with Leaky gut.
Determining which foods are leaking through your gut and the amount of reaction that each of those foods is causing in your body is the key to repairing your gut and getting on the road to health. Repairing a leaky gut has been proven to improve health, reduce fatigue, increase energy and typically leads to weight loss.
How do I know which foods are causing my gut to leak?
Identifying hidden food sensitivities without proper testing is impossible! Food Sensitivities, the cause of Leaky Gut, is NOT the same as a Food Allergies! The foods you may have allergies to are not necessarily the same as those you have sensitivities to. Food sensitivities (long term silent inflammatory reactions) cause leaky gut NOT food allergies (immediate Histamine related reactions). Food allergies produce an immediate response such as gas and bloating, as a result, most people know their food allergies and can avoid those foods so laboratory testing is often unnecessary. By comparison, the intestinal tears and leaking gaps from Food Sensitivities often take days to manifest depending on your immune system.
