Leaky Gut Syndrome, the Microbiome, and Natural Remedies to the Rescue
Many people find that they have difficulty with their digestive system. They feel tired after eating, feel bloated, suffer from irregularity and just don’t feel right. Leaky gut syndrome may be the reason. There are multiple influences that promote the inflammatory process involved in GI disturbances ranging from irritable bowel distress to the more complex manifestations of Crohn’s disease. One well documented causative factor is compromised intercellular junctions in the GI mucosa leading to intestinal permeability. In this presentation, we will discuss the mechanism of action that initiates and complicates inflammation when intercellular junctions are compromised , discuss diagnostic tests that can help identify this process, and present several evidence based herbs and natural interventions that can be used to positively influence this condition. This class will explore the condition and remedies to address it.
