Leaky gut has been linked to many health conditions, diseases and disorders. But, it’s not what you think.

What is Leaky Gut Syndrome?

Do you think you might have leaky gut? Is Leaky Gut actually what you think it is?

What is Leaky Gut? Leaky Gut is a critical intestinal disease that perforates the lining of the intestinal tract, or the stomach.

Popular belief is that pathogens, such as viruses and bacteria, get into your bloodstream because of the perforation in the intestinal tract, or the stomach.

But that’s not quite right (more on that below).

Do you have Leaky Gut Syndrome?

The term Leaky Gut is being thrown around a lot and a lot of people think they have Leaky Gut. Common belief is that if you have skin conditions, digestive issues, autoimmune conditions and other warning signs such as food allergies, sensitivities or intolerances, than you likely have Leaky Gut.

But in actuality, if you had Leaky Gut, you would have a raging fever and/or sepsis, which is a severe infection. Those are the real symptoms of Leaky Gut.

What causes Leaky Gut Syndrome?

Leaky Gut can be caused by stomach ulcers, by bacteria streams such as E coli that develop pockets in the intestinal lining, from superbugs, from hemorrhaging abscesses or Diverticulitis. These are the things that cause Leaky Gut. Leaky Gut can also be caused by a colonoscopy where the colon is punctured.

Ammonia Permeability

A better name for Leaky Gut is Ammonia Permeability. I didn’t come up with that term. That term was coined by the Medical Medium.

But what happens is your hydrochloric acid, which is your stomach acid, becomes low and you’re not able to digest your food properly. As a result, when proteins reach your lower intestine, they are not broken down enough for your cells to access the nutrients and the food just stays there and rots. Sounds disgusting doesn’t it?

When this food decomposes in your intestinal tract it creates an ammonia gas and this gas floats out of your intestines into your bloodstream. That’s why this is called Ammonia Permeability. And this is most likely what people often have when they think they have Leaky Gut.

Symptoms and Conditions

Ammonium Permeability can cause things like digestive issues or digestive discomfort, bloating, constipation, fatigue – those kind of issues are caused by Ammonia Permeability. What you need to know now is how to fix it.

How can you heal Ammonia Permeability?

The way to fix Ammonia Permeability is to increase your stomach acid.

There are many ways you can increase your stomach acid but two very simple ways that you can increase your stomach acid are with celery juice and lemon water. Get instructions and best practices for these two methods.
