Leaky Gut…

Are you suffering from this?

The answer maybe yes and you may not even know it! I am going to explain this in non-medical and non-technical terms. Think of it this way, if you put fuel into your car and a few seconds later you hear it coming out somewhere…Uh Oh!…you know something is wrong!!!. What will you do, stop the pump, stop filling up and go have a look. If there is a leak you are not going to continue putting the fuel in.

Unfortunately, with your gut you cannot just stop putting the food (your fuel) in, however you can change the type of fuel. Basically when the gut becomes permeable, the food passes right through into the blood stream creating skin problems, food intolerances, sneezing, inflammatory conditions, pain, bowel problems and much more.

What causes the gut to become leaky?

Stress, excess protein, excess sugar, excess alcohol, toxins like parasites, fungal overload, metal toxicity, bacterial overload and so on. All of these items create acid in the gut and disturb the whole acid alkaline balance.

When you have more acid you may suffer from an array of problems like poor sleep, low energy levels, mood swings, irritability, food intolerances, skin problems, weight problems, digestive problems like bloating , gas, excess wind, bowel fluctuations, changes from diarrhoea, to constipation and much more.

With a very simple test I can determine what is causing the acid alkaline imbalance, what you need to do about it and whether you have leaky gut or not.

The most acidic foods are white flour based products (refined carbohydrates), like pasta, pizza, white bread, cakes, biscuits, SUGAR of course in all its forms…excess protein and not enough vegetables. Protein comes from food sources like nuts, red meat especially…fish and chicken; white meat is acidic too but not as much as red meat. In an acidic environment all the nasties thrive, they eat away at your protective layers on the inside and leave you feeling very sluggish, down and unwell to say the least. You simply cannot thrive and be healthy.

Bread soda is often recommended to replenish the alkaline levels as well as treating the body, taking an antidote for the toxin if present, treating the stress if that’s the core issue, looking at your dietary habits as it’s a blend of numerous things which create it, the good news is the gut repairs very quickly given the correct conditions. Unfortunately a magic wand cannot fix just like anything else but treatment is highly successful.
