Leaky Gut

Improve your overall health with the best gut health specialists.
If you experience symptoms such as chronic bloating, fatigue, or joint pain, you could be suffering from a leaky gut – a condition that can significantly impact your daily life by affecting your overall health and well-being. Fortunately, treatment options are available that can help manage and alleviate these symptoms, restoring your gut health and improving your quality of life.

What is a Leaky Gut?

Leaky gut is a condition where the intestinal lining becomes damaged, allowing toxins, bacteria, and undigested food particles to “leak” through into your bloodstream. This can cause an immune response, leading to inflammation, joint pain, headaches, and many other health issues.
The exact causes of leaky gut can vary, with factors such as diet, infections, and chronic stress all playing potential roles in the development of the condition.

Dr. Marina and her team changed my life! I suffered from fatigue, mood swings, and severe back pain due to medical conditions and a car accident. After trying everything suggested and surgery as my last option, I found NWG Dr. M suggested lab tests and found that I had a leaky gut. I followed all treatment recommendation, and now I feel like a completely different person! I have no pain, great energy, and feel motivated every day. I highly recommend their service because it’s better to test than guess. Thank you all again for everything!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the connection between leaky gut syndrome and autoimmune diseases?
Leaky gut syndrome can trigger systemic inflammation, which can lead to various autoimmune diseases by causing the immune system to attack its own tissues. This is one of the reasons why it’s important to receive treatment if you have a leaky gut (or if you suspect you might have the condition).
How are food allergies and food sensitivities linked to leaky gut?
When the gut lining is compromised, undigested food particles can escape into the bloodstream, potentially leading to food allergies and heightened food sensitivities. Your Leaky Gut Specialist can conduct tests to determine which foods are causing issues and guide you on an elimination diet to identify triggers. They will also recommend dietary adjustments and medical-grade supplements to repair the gut lining and reduce sensitivities.
What are the best strategies for treating leaky gut and restoring gut health?
Treating leaky gut typically involves dietary changes, nutritional supplements to help repair the gut lining, and addressing the underlying cause of the imbalance.
Can celiac disease be confused with increased intestinal permeability (leaky gut)?
Yes, celiac disease, characterized by an autoimmune response to gluten, often results in increased intestinal permeability but has distinct markers that require an accurate diagnosis. Your Leaky Gut Specialist can determine if you have a leaky gut.
Is there a difference in how leaky gut is treated in cases of irritable bowel syndrome versus Crohn's disease?
Yes, if you have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or Crohn’s disease in addition to a leaky gut, the treatment strategy will vary. IBS primarily focuses on symptom management, while Crohn’s disease treatment might involve more aggressive approaches to reduce intestinal inflammation and maintain remission.
What role do probiotics play in leaky gut treatment and maintaining a healthy gastrointestinal tract?
Probiotics help restore bacterial balance in the gastrointestinal tract, which can strengthen the gut lining and improve the overall ability to absorb nutrients effectively. Your Leaky Gut Specialist will determine which specific probiotics you need, along with any other medical-grade supplements and treatments.
