How to Prevent the Progression of a Leaky Gut
Many of us have experienced at some point one or two of the symptoms that are related to leaky gut syndrome. Leaky gut syndrome is in fact as it sounds, the leaking or passing of toxins from the intestine into the blood stream. It happens as a result of the intestinal lining becoming damaged and therefore unable to act as a barrier to prevent anything from passing.
Once waste and toxins pass into the blood the body then fights back by reacting in an auto immune way. Cramping of the stomach, acid build up, bloating, fatigue and many more symptoms start to come about. For some, these symptoms which come about from the onset progress slowly into more serious health problems.
Women in particular are perhaps more aware of the typical symptoms brought about by a leaky gut. Maybe it is due to the fact that women are more body conscious, particularly when it comes to a bloated gut and whether or not it is noticeable in her clothes. Men on the other hard tend to be ignorant or maybe stubborn and are far more willing to put up with discomfort rather than seek medical advice.
To prevent any symptoms of a leaky gut from progressing into something worse, it is a good idea to take a look at your current life style and be prepared to make some potentially lifesaving changes. Changes in what you eat will have a huge role in the health of your digestive system and help prevent leaky gut syndrome. Cutting out processed foods, eating fresh fruit and vegetables, doing regular exercise and drinking plenty of water are all preventative and essential measures you should take in order to take care of your body and help contribute to a healthy and prolonged way of life.
