People often call our Center and ask about an issue they refer to as “Leaky Gut”. While there is really no such thing as described, this situation is not a stand-alone condition but rather a symptom of other underlying issues. Leaky gut is where the intestines become a bit more porous than normal and can cause digestive issues. The most common cause of this problem is a systemic overgrowth of human Yeast or Candida, throughout the body.
Candida can affect many areas of the body and our health and the digestive system is one of the main areas of trouble. As the yeast multiplies and breaks into the blood stream, eventually spreading to the soft tissues of the body, the digestive system is compromised. Even if we take measures, both natural and medical, to rid the digestive tract of excess yeast, once it has become systemic it simply continues to migrate back to the digestive area over and over again.
Many well-meaning professionals attempt to address the so-called leaky gut as a stand-alone issue, not realizing that as long as there is excess yeast in the body, the leaky gut will not be ultimately corrected. However, once the yeast overgrowth is brought under control through the use of hyper oxygenation of the soft tissues, the leaky gut issue and its symptoms simply disappear on its own since it is the yeast that is most often driving the digestive issues. This is true for many other digestive issues such has acid reflux and boating, each caused by prolific human yeast overgrowth.
