Leaky Gut Syndrome is a term used to describe the effects of toxins getting through the gut into our bloodstream - causing a host of negative symptoms. Leaky gut is often caused by chronic stress, antibiotic overuse, and poor diet.


Some of the causes of Leaky Gut Syndrome are:


  • Chronic unmanaged stress

  • Candida overgrowth

  • Small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)

  • Parasites

  • Environmental toxins (BPA, mercury, alcohol, medications etc)

  • Inflammatory foods (diary)
