Dr. Minkoff discusses the role of leaky gut in autoimmune diseases

What is Leaky Gut Syndrome?

Leaky gut syndrome (also known as increased intestinal permeability) is a term used by experienced leaky gut doctors in Tampa to describe the condition of the intestines when its lining becomes damaged and gaps appear between the cells.

These gaps allow large particles and toxins to pass through the intestinal wall and escape into the body. Because these “foreign objects” are not supposed to be in the blood they trigger the immune system, which sets up inflammation in different parts of the body and a cascade of symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, brain fog, food sensitivities, bloating, cramps, and more.

Leaky gut is not widely recognized by mainstream physicians but as Dr. Oz recently mentioned, it is often overlooked because conventional medicine doesn’t know how to diagnose it, and a patient can present with multiple, seemingly unrelated symptoms.

Because a leaky gut is responsible for so many unexplained chronic health conditions, it is one of the first things we test for and address. Repairing a leaky gut is one of the most important foundational steps to recover from any chronic disease.

Don’t Put off Addressing Gut Dysfunction

Getting your gut health on-point and healing any outstanding issues should not be put on the back burner. Gut health issues, like leaky gut, affect all areas of your health. Your gut is the foundation for the strength and proper function of your immune system. In addition it plays a vital role in nutrient absorption, waste elimination, energy production, and brain health.

Gut issues that are left untreated tend to develop into more serious issues, like autoimmune conditions, Crohn’s, IBS, arthritis, joint pains, neurological disorders, and even cardiovascular disease.

What can seem like a minor gut annoyance, if left untreated, over time can snowball into a more serious condition. Don’t let that be you. Get it checked and fix it while it’s easy and cost-effective to do so.
