Leaky Gut Specialist Melbourne – 4 Steps To Healing Leaky Gut

What is a leaky gut?

Leaky gut…. is just that a gut that leaks. Your intestinal lining which is normally kilometres of tight junctions can be damaged, through infections, stress, toxins, ageing and certain foods. This damage causes inflammation and increased permeability. Suddenly poorly digested food particles and bacteria are able to pass through into your bloodstream unhindered.

“Leaky gut syndrome” is said to have symptoms including bloating, gas, cramps, food sensitivities, and aches and pains. But it’s something of a medical mystery.

“From an MD’s standpoint, it’s a very gray area,” says gastroenterologist Donald Kirby, MD, director of the Center for Human Nutrition at the Cleveland Clinic. “Physicians don’t know enough about the gut, which is our biggest immune system organ.” – WebMD

Summer Salad

Summer Salad

Personal favourite of mine in summer – simple, tasty, packed with nutrients. Micro greens or herbs are a sensational addition if you can find them at the markets. I’ve found them at organic vegetable stalls bundled in bags. Add a protein of your choice to keep you satisfied for longer – chickpeas, pine nuts, pistachio, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, fresh fish, poached chicken, boiled egg, sliced lamb…… Fantastic for lunch or dinner.
