So, I’m finally shaking myself out of denial.
I’ve always known that I have a Leaky gut issue. And I’ve made some lame attempts at using supplements that will help fix the gut lining.
It’s been so many years now and my gut’s getting worse.
I am beginning to feel very malnourished for all the food I consume. I always complained that I do so many things right, why doesn’t my body register that and respond with some healing and positive change. Well… If not much of what I’m putting in my mouth is getting through, that would kind of explain it!
A Leaky Gut happens when the gut lining is so damaged that instead of letting through properly digested nutrients for the body to use, it lets through larger bits of food that just act as harmful intruders.
This causes a lot of stress and an inflammatory reaction. Sometimes these larger molecules even get to the brain creating a ‘fogginess’. It causes quite a stress on the body constantly fighting off this low grade, never-ending, barrage of not-properly-presented food molecules. It doesn’t know how to deal with it. That’s the gut’s job, and no one else knows what to do!
