Leaky Gut – also known as intestinal permeability – describes a condition in which the lining of the small intestine becomes damaged, causing undigested food particles, toxic waste products, and bacteria to penetrate and enter the bloodstream. It’s one of the major HIDDEN stressors that leads to hormone imbalances. I've never seen a person struggling with hormones that doesn't need to heal their gut.
When you have foreign substances invading the bloodstream they cause autoimmune responses, including inflammatory and allergic reactions. These agents can causelocal and systemic reactions associated with a broad range of diseases. Oh, and when these toxins and substances get in your bloodstream your body have no idea how to protect you from them fast so it starts to hide them in your fat cells, so hello stubborn and often sudden weight gain!!!
It also raises your cortisol in order to cool down the inflammation (which goes hand in hand with insulin) which leads to sluggish/sick liver and progesterone and thyroid issues!! In addition to leaky gut’s role in “letting the bad things in” it also the culprit for keeping out the good; in the form of damaged cells which cannot adequately produce the substances necessary to aid in digestion of nutrients.
A failure in the quality of nutrient intake is at the root of a myriad of health problems, including those which impact hormone balance and brain function - hello fatigue, anxiety, “where did I put my keys” problems.
