Lately, I have been sharing information about HS and the dangers of continuing to eat nightshade foods like potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, paprika, and more. Today I want to share information about "Gut Permeability" or "Leaky Gut." According the Dr. Alessio Fasano and his research on gut permeability and celiac's disease (and gluten intolerance) there are 1 in 133 people in the US who suffer from this disease. Therefore, many people are suffering from "Leaky Gut."
However, it's not just foods that are causing these issues but medicines as well like Ibuprofen, steroids, antibiotics, and acid-reducing drugs. It's a vicious circle that we weave when we eat the foods that cause an inflammatory response like pain leading us to take medicine to relieve the pain which is part of the cause of a leaky gut. Of course, the environmental toxins are also part of this process. When a person quits eating the foods that are causing the inflammation response most disease and disorders disappear. Stress is also a factor in causing leaky gut. So you can see there are a variety of things we all are doing every day that is leading the breakdown of our digestive system and causing leaky gut.
