Dr Oz: Leaky Gut Syndrome Symptoms
A mysterious disease that we are still learning about, Leaky Gut Syndrome is when the lining of your gut is damaged and bacteria and toxins leak out into your body. This leads to joint pain, fatigue, rash and so much more:
- Food sensitivities
- Bloating and/or gas
- Abdominal cramps
Susannah Meadows noticed the joint pain in her son that just wouldn’t go away. The problem is that these weird symptoms that occur all over the body make diagnosis hard, said Dr Robynne Chutkan. She said that the gut acts as a tube from the mouth to the anus, keeping things outside the rest of your body. When things get absorbed and get into the blood stream, they travel all over the body.
Dr Oz built a model, oh how he loves his models. He said that the gut lining, represented by a net, keeps things from getting into the bloodstream, which was below the net. He used balls for nutrients. What is normal is for those nutrients to get absorbed, through the net, and help the body. Now, when you put in toxins, bigger balls, they don’t normally get through and the lining protects you. Leaky Gut is like scissors, which cut the net and let the toxins out. Chemicals go haywire, said Dr Oz.
