The leaky gut syndrome is a serious problem. When you hear about it you may think it only affects the digestive system, but it is not true. It actually leads to a variety of health concerns that are not connected at first sight. So, let’s have a look at a list of leaky gut consequences:
- chronic fatigue
- rheumatoid arthritis
- multiple sclerosis
- autoimmune disease
- skin diseases like eczema, psoriasis, acne
- type 1 diabetes
- headaches and migraines
- thyroid disorders
- Inflammatory bowel disease
- joint pain
The intestinal lining is like a net with tiny holes in it. These holes allow only useful substances to pass through them into your bloodstream. When the lining becomes more porous, it cannot work properly anymore. Now toxins, undigested food, microbes and other waste can easily pass directly into your bloodstream. This, in turn, activates your immune system. In the beginning, your liver tries to screen out all these waste substances but it cannot keep up with its endless flow. So this poisonous material starts to accumulate in your body. The second reaction of your body is inflammation. In other words, your body leads a war against itself. It is a huge stress and leads to chronic fatigue and a wide range of autoimmune diseases. Your organism will also try to get rid of the toxins through the skin and the result is rash and mentioned skin disorders.
What causes a leaky gut syndrome
First is a poor diet. Modern food is full of processed products, fast foods and artificial additives. Bad diet leads to intestinal spasms (you may not even feel them) and they cause pressure on the intestinal lining and stretch it, the diameter of the pores become larger in size.
Second is stress. Chronic stress has a bad influence on your immune system. When it is weakened, it cannot perform its normal work. You become subject to inflammation. Gut inflammation can lead to the leaky gut syndrome.
Third, toxins and chemicals. Accumulation of toxins and chemicals in our body is extremely dangerous. We get them with food, tap water, antibiotics etc.
Dysbiosis, in other words, imbalance of good and bad bacteria, is one of the major factors leading to increased intestinal permeability.
How to avoid this disease?
Keeping a healthy diet and physical exercises can be good preventive measures, but if you already noticed that you have several symptoms of leaky gut you cannot ignore it because it can lead to severe consequences.
Colon hydrotherapy can help to get rid of fecal buildups, dangerous substances, parasites and bad flora that have been accumulating in your colon during life. These waste buildups produce toxins that can get into your bloodstream. Colon irrigation provides you with deep colon cleansing. We use clean ozone water that will gently wash away the waste stuck to the walls of the colon. Your therapist will perform abdominal massage during the treatment. After we give you a pill with probiotics that will help to renew your colon flora with beneficial bacteria. Colon cleansing can help eliminate the main reasons for the leaky gut syndrome. It also improves colon motility and intestinal lining. Colon hydrotherapy in combination with a good diet and average physical activity will make you forget about the leaky gut syndrome and unpleasant consequences connected with it.
