Ever wondered why there is such an increase in food allergies and behavioural problems in our kids today? Would you believe that much of it has to do with their gut?
I touched a little on how our kids’ health has changed in the last 40 years earlier in the month… but one of the main contributors to these changes is the prevalence of a little-known condition called Leaky Gut Syndrome.
Leaky gut is an inflammation of the gut wall, which allows toxins and larger than normal food particles into the bloodstream. This triggers a person’s immune system to respond in a number of different ways with far-reaching consequences.
It may not seem too dangerous, but leaky gut actually contributes to a huge range of conditions like autoimmune disease, thyroid problems, ADD, ADHD, autism, food allergies and intolerances, skin conditions and asthma.
Signs your child might have leaky gut syndrome include:
