“I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at age 33 and am now in remission thanks to Helena. Within a month of working together, my energy levels improved, my pain decreased and I began to feel like myself again. I look and feel absolutely fantastic and thanks to Helena, I’ve entered a new chapter in my life filled with endless possibilities.” ~ Michelle

What is Leaky Gut?

Leaky Gut Syndrome, also known as intestinal hyperpermeability is a condition that happens as a consequence of intestinal tight junction malfunction. “Tight junctions” are the gateway between your intestines and what is allowed to pass into your blood stream. Tight junctions keep things out like toxins, microbes and undigested food particles. When your tight junctions malfunction, particles get through into your blood stream that don’t belong there. This can lead to systemic inflammation around your body and a variety of health ailments. A growing body of research has linked leaky gut to a number of “seemingly unrelated” health concerns and chronic diseases.

Causes of Leaky Gut

The lining of the gut wall is often subjected to a wide variety of insults from substances such as alcohol, caffeine, spices, gluten, medications and environmental chemicals. As more people are affected by poor diet choices, chronic stress, toxic overload, candida overgrowth, intestinal parasites and bacterial imbalance, the prevalence of leaky gut has reached epidemic proportions.

Leaky Gut Treatment

You don’t have to suffer with Leaky Gut anymore. Correcting the altered intestinal permeability can have an immediate effect on the relief of symptoms that you are experiencing and facilitate the gradual improvement in the underlying condition. Our Naturopaths work with you towards your health goals to work out the best treatment protocol for you. This involves working out the factors as to why you have leaky gut and removing them so that healing can take place in your body.
During your initial consultation our Naturopaths take a detailed case history, run various in-house tests and can request a comprehensive digestive stool analysis, zonulin leaky gut test, urine leaky gut test, breath tests or food intolerances test if they think these are relevant for you. Once we have received all your test results back we will put you on a specific treatment plan and diet, to bring your gut integrity, digestive function and overall wellbeing back to feeling fantastic again.
