"The first week I started the regime the change was amazing. My energy returned, my skin glowed, the aches and pains and heat (inflammation) in my joints went away (almost all), the gastric reflux stopped. People commented on the change in me. I was amazed at how different and positive I felt. So thank you so much." Susie, Plymouth

"I can't speak highly enough of that man, he changed my life". Doreen, Worcester 

 

Leaky Gut 

The mucous lining of the gut affords many essential functions including defence (50% - 60% of the body's immune cells are found in the gut), protection against direct entry of micro-organisms and other unwanted substances, digestion and absorption of nutrients paramount in supporting life itself and, not least, as a very important route of detoxification of waste products and dangerous chemicals from the body which cannot be made water soluble and discarded with the urine.

The gut has over two and a half kilograms of foreign material in it. This foreign material, comprised of bacteria (both good probiotics and bad, pathogenic commensals), viruses, fungus/Candida and parasites, is said to comprise more cells than there are in the entire body! Therefore, it is not a good place to sustain a break in the integrity of the lining or wall, leading to a leak in the gut.
A leaky gut undermines the delicate processes and balance and leads to inflammation.
 
The causes of this inflammation must be divided into:

Food allergy/intolerance especially to dairy and grains (wheat in particular)

Reaction to toxins such as chemicals (pesticides, herbicides, food additives etc), and heavy metals (mercury, lead, arsenic, cadmium etc)

Medicinal drugs such as the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs, antibiotics, steroids etc

All of which interfere with enzyme systems creating an imbalance in the all-important ratio of good bacterial flora, probiotics, to the not-so-good commensal organisms in the gut.

The best natural treatment of leaky gut is to identify and eliminate the responsible foods, pathogens (bacteria, viruses, fungus/Candida, and parasites) and the toxins, to replenish the probiotics and prebiotics - fibre, both soluble and insoluble from grains, fruits and vegetables - which feed them, and to support the immune system with the required amino acids, vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids of omega 3 and 6.       


An Integral Health DNA Hair Test not only can identify the epigenetic factors which possibly give rise to cause/causes of an imbalance in the body and the potential for signs and symptoms of disease; it is also able to highlight the nutrient and lifestyle recommendations specific for each unique individual, helping to ensure they are able to achieve optimum health - naturally.
