Leaky gut syndrome
Leaky gut syndrome could be caused by intestinal permeability or intestinal hyper-permeability. This could be when tight junctions, which control what passes through the lining of the small intestine, don’t work well, leading to substances leaking into the bloodstream. Hypermeablity might be the reason why this happens and it can affect your gut health. The small intestine can get so damaged that toxic waste, bacteria and parasites can leak through the wall and infect the bloodstream. Infections can come on quickly. A professional qualified Homeopath should be able to work with you to reverse your leaky gut syndrome.
