I have been trying to figure out the exact cause of this condition for a long time. I now realize why it was so difficult to crack the code. There are many causes of this increasingly common gastrointestinal problem. It is the result of a GI tract that has been attacked by numerous vagaries of modern living.
Leaky Gut Syndrome has been a buzz word for people who go online and become convinced that this is ‘what they have’ – what is causing their stomach problems.
Well–maybe. This term is really a catch phrase for a group of issues -causes -that do bring us to a common place—-holes in our gut.
If you have an inflammatory bowel condition the good news is that with the proper treatment you can permanently repair your gastrointestinal tract. The means is to replace the mucosal lining which protects the tissue of the intestinal wall. This tissue is made up of skin- fat and muscle. Without the mucosal lining our stomach acid erodes the wall and over time will create the symptoms of IBD.
Most people believe that Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs cause inflammatory bowel conditions. Not so. Yes it is true that the use of drugs such as aspirin- ibuprofen and naproxin can contribute to the inflammation of the gastro-intestinal tract but they are not the cause- they are only the secondary influence.
IBS – COLITIS – UC – LEAKY GUT SYNDROME – CROHN’S DISEASE ARE NOT AUTO-IMMUNE DISEASES!
The title auto–immune disease suggests that the cause of these symptoms:
- – diarrhea
- – pain
- – bloating
- rectal bleeding and
- mucus in the stool
is the immune system attacking the intestines for no apparent reason.
How many times in your life you realised that the doctors do not have all the answers? How much time shall pass until you get the responsability for your own health into your own hands?
One of the basic tenets of holistic gastro-enterology is that all inflammatory bowel conditions are manmade. They are not caused by poor diets –
Do you know how you can get relief? Do you know how you can stop the pain and discomfort?
All Inflammatory bowel conditions being IBS – colitis – ulcerative colitis and crohn’s disease are the same manmade condition separated only by the amount of damage done to the colon.
The amount of damage is commensurate to the length of time one has gone without the proper treatment.
A question I frequently get from my clients is ‘why can’t my doctor fix my inflammatory bowel disease?’
Of course by IBD they are referring to the various different names IBD goes by- IBS- colitis -UC and crohn’s.
