What is a Leaky Gut?
A leaky gut refers to a gut that due to either a food trigger or an emotional trigger (such as anxiety, anger or stress) is being attacked by the body. What occurs here is that a trigger such as a certain food or emotion causes an immune response in the gut. This response creates inflammation and the release of harmful particles that harm the cell of the gut walls. These harmful particles out of the gut and into to the blood reaching the skin, thyroid, reproductive organs, muscles, joints and brain.
A leaky gut is an inflammatory gut that is leaking cytokines into the blood stream creating a variety of health problems.
What Causes a Leaky Gut?
Typically a leaky gut is caused by certain foods that have protein patterns that the body does not recognize so it attacks it thinking the food is a forcing invader. When we eat real food (food grown with real seeds in the earth and not food made in a lab or with seeds made in a lab), our body recognizes the protein patterns.
Think of an apple. Your body knows what this is and breaks it down quiet easily utilizing the nutrients, minerals, fiber and all goodness and excreting the parts it doe snot need. However, when you eat a food the body does not recognize it sill attack it thinking it is an invader or an antigen. This is common with many handmade foods and genetically modified foods, yet the body can attack foods that are natural as as well such as with a milk intolerance.Emotional factors such as stress, anger and worry can also cause a leaky gut.
Thus, when the body thinks a food that you are eating is an antigen, it attacks it. This creates an immune response in your gut which releases particles such as histamine and cytokines. Histamine can be the cause of health problems such as chronic allergies and gustatory rhinitis. Cytokines actually attack the cellular junctions within the walls of the gut, breaking them down and creating a space where they can escape the gut and get into the bloodstream. Once they do, they can travel to many places within the body and create health problems.
