Leaky Gut Syndrome

Unless specifically investigated, Leaky Gut Syndrome (otherwise known as Increased Intestinal Permeability) often goes unrecognized, yet this is quite a common health problem.

 

 

 

Symptoms associated with Leaky Gut include:

  • Allergies
  • Joint pain
  • Fevers of unknown origin
  • Abdominal pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Toxic feelings
  • Poor exercise tolerance
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle pain
  • Food intolerance's
  • Bloating
  • Skin rashes
  • Poor memory and difficulty learning

What is Leaky Gut?

Antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs, alcohol or infection can cause the intestinal lining to become inflamed and when this happens the actual structure of the lining which keeps out large molecules, undigested protein, bacteria etc from passing into the bloodstream is weakened. Gaps appear between the cells. The fine sieve has now become more of a colander allowing large particles and toxins to escape into the body. This puts the immune system on red alert and in response it produces antibodies to locate and attack foreign objects to fight off the molecules, as they are perceived as an invader. This can initiate the reactions mentioned above.

One of our specialties at our Clearwater clinic is the correction of the leaky gut. In as little as 4-6 weeks with our programs the gut will heal and you can feel normal again.

Dr. David Minkoff, M.D.
Founder and Medical Director
In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established Lifeworks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
