This is an extremely common health condition today that affects most people, to a greater or lesser degree.
In almost all cases, the cause is improper diet. We know this because when a person follows a nutritional balancing diet – but not other – the intestinal tract heals and the condition slowly goes away.
Food items that contribute to it include:
- food chemicals
- wheat in any form
- raw salads
- too much meat
- vegetarian diets
- poor eating habits such as inadequate chewing, eating on the run, eating too fast, or eating standing up or while driving.
Leaky gut syndrome can cause a wide variety of common digestive symptoms such as stomach pain, diarrhea, constipation, food allergies or intolerances, reduced absorption of nutrient, malnutrition, improper bowel flora or SIBO, inflammatory conditions and more.
Some doctors recommend various tests to assess leaky gut syndrome. We find this is not required. Instead, it is best to assume that one has some degree of leaky gut syndrome, because it is almost universal.
HOW LONG DOES CORRECTION TAKE?
This depends upon how deranged digestion is when one begins. It also depends upon how faithful one is with a nutritional balancing diet. However, it can take several years or more if the digestive system is in bad shape.
CAN ONE CORRECT IT ON ONE’S OWN, OR MUST ONE WORK WITH A NUTRITIONAL BALANCING PRACTITIONER?
It is possible to do it yourself with the Free Program. However, this usually does not occur. The reason is that one oversight or mistake with the diet can prevent healing of the digestive system.
Also, the Free Program is not as powerful as a complete nutritional balancing program. You can begin immediately with the Free Program, but it is much better to work with a practitioner.
