What is Leaky Gut Syndrome?
Leaky Gut Syndrome, or intestinal hyperpermeability, is where the small gaps in your intestinal wall—or “tight junctions”—become loose due to pro-inflammatory foods and stressors.
These loose intestinal walls can then lead to inflammation that can affect the whole body by allowing harmful bacteria and toxins to directly enter your bloodstream.
Many health experts are now saying that inflammation may be the root cause to many of today’s chronic health diseases. Some of these diseases include—but are not limited to—diabetes, cardiovascular and autoimmune disease, Alzheimer's, Parkinson’s, and even cancer.
I’m not trying to scare you guys, but I am trying to get the point across that taking care of your health is much more than eating whole foods.
That’s why I’m honored to have Dr. David Perlmutter on episode #20 of Ancestral Health Radio.
