Leaky gut syndrome, while not a disease itself, is a condition that can lead directly to illnesses like constipation and ulcers or indirectly to arthritis, asthma, chronic fatigue syndrome, food allergies and sensitivities, migraine headaches and psoriasis. Understanding leaky gut syndrome can help you achieve optimal health.

 

McGraw-Hill authors represent the leading experts in their fields and are dedicated to improving the lives, careers, and interests of readers worldwide.

Editor reviews

This little book (56 pages) is a great introduction to leaky gut syndrome from one of the leading experts on the condition in the natural health field.

Although being so short the book doesn't go into great detail on any one aspect of leaky gut syndrome it does cover all the bases including explaining what the condition is, discussing the various factors that can cause it, giving details of laboratory testing, and describing what can be done to reverse it.

The causes of leaky gut syndrome the book describes include antibiotics, pain medications, chronic stress, Candida overgrowth, and food sensitivities. All the major leaky gut related lab testing is covered including intestinal permeability testing, comprehensive digestive stool analysis (CDSA), and testing for Candida, bacteria and parasites. Suggestions for recovering from the condition include the removal of aggravating substances and other factors such as stress, the use of nutrients that nouroush and repair the damaged intestinal lining, and detoxification methods.

This is a great primer on leaky gut syndrome for those who are new to the subject and want all the important facts without too much unneccesary detail. If you find this book helpful and want to learn more then I would suggest reading Elizabeth Lipski's much more extensive work Digestive Wellness which goes into more detail on leaky gut syndrome and covers many other related aspects of digestive health and how it affects health in general.
