Leaky Gut

Most of the issues we see here can all be linked back to poor gut health. That’s why our main priority is to help you restore your digestive health and heal a leaky gut. If you think you might be struggling with gut problems and are looking for a doctor for your gut and digestive health needs, The Gut Authority can help you out.

What Is Leaky Gut?

“Leaky gut” is an overall term applied to poor digestive health when the direct cause isn’t known yet. A leaky gut has been linked to autoimmune disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome, poor immune function, and many other health problems. It occurs when the junctions that hold the cells that line your intestines together become damaged. This allows partially digested food and other toxins to pass directly into your bloodstream. A specialist or GI doctor can help diagnose and then work on healing your gut. A GI doctor is a gastroenterologist that specializes in diseases and issues affecting the digestive system, from the gastrointestinal tract clear to the anus.

How We Can Help You

When a “leaky gut” occurs, your body sees the leaking food particles as an intruder and sets off your body’s defense mechanism. However, your body has a hard time differentiating between your body’s normal cells and these foreign invaders, and so it often will attack its own cells. Over time, this attack can cause problems and digestive issues, such as abdominal pain, as it damages important cells.

We’ll take a look at many factors that can contribute to leaky gut, and laboratory blood tests can confirm whether or not you have it. We’ll use a variety of tactics to heal your insides, such as:

  • Eliminate digestive stressors such as foods you’re allergic to, toxins, and any ongoing infections.
  • Ensure you’re eating the right foods and supplements to make sure your digestive tract can heal.
  • Make sure your stomach is protected by restoring good bacteria and then promoting strong bowel habits.
  • Help your gut repair itself with the right nutrients using supplementation and the right foods.
  • Ensure you have overall body balance by getting enough sleep, exercise, and time to rest.
  • Routine doctor check-ins to ensure you’re healing and feeling better.

This is just a general outline of what we can do for you. Every person is different, with different issues going on. If you’re suffering from irritable bowel syndrome or inflammatory bowel disease symptoms, celiac disease, abdominal pain, gastroesophageal reflux disease, or other chronic disease symptoms, we can help! We’ll base your plan on your specific needs.
