What is a Leaky Gut?

 

A leaky gut refers to a gut that due to either a food trigger or an emotional trigger (such as anxiety, anger or stress) is being attacked by the body. What occurs here is that a trigger such as a certain food or emotion causes an immune response in the gut. This response creates inflammation and the release of harmful particles that harm the cell of the gut walls. These harmful particles out of the gut and into to the blood reaching the skin, thyroid, reproductive organs, muscles, joints and brain.

A leaky gut is an inflammatory gut that is leaking cytokines into the blood stream creating a variety of health problems.

What causes a Leaky Gut?

Typically a leaky gut is caused by certain foods that have protein patterns that the body does not recognize so it attacks it thinking the food is a forcing invader. When we eat real food (food grown with real seeds in the earth and not food made in a lab or with seeds made in a  lab), our body recognizes the protein patterns.

Think of an apple. Your body knows what this is and breaks it down quiet easily utilizing the nutrients, minerals, fiber and all goodness and excreting the parts it doe snot need. However, when you eat a food the body does not recognize it sill attack it thinking it is an invader or an antigen. This is common with many handmade foods and genetically modified foods, yet the body can attack foods that are natural as as well such as with a milk intolerance.Emotional factors such as stress, anger and worry can also cause a leaky gut.

Thus, when the body thinks a food that you are eating is an antigen, it attacks it. This creates an immune response in your gut which releases particles such as histamine and cytokines. Histamine can be the cause of health problems such as chronic allergies and gustatory rhinitis. Cytokines actually attack the cellular junctions within the walls of the gut, breaking them down and creating a space where they can escape the gut and get into the bloodstream. Once they do, they can travel to many places within the body and create health problems.

 My Energy is Back, Missing Period is Found & I Lost 41 lbs!

“My story goes back to 2013 when I began working from home instead of standing up so I started to gain weight. By the time I started my new job in 2104, I was sitting for 10 hours a day. I began to gain weight and experience extreme fatigue. I thought I knew what a portion size was and how to healthy, but I was wrong. I also had issues with my skin, extreme dry eyes and a missing period for one year (I was told I was in menopause, but was hoping I could still have a baby). I just could not lose weight no matter what I did and knew I had to see Dr. Lisa as I knew something was wrong with me. The Kind Gut™ proved that I my thyroid was bad, I was not in menopause and possibly had PCOS and that I was eating all wrong. My period in fact did come back after a year when Dr.Lisa had me eat seeds. I found out I had a leaky gut with candida and was extremely vitamin deficient. Vitamin B12 and Vitamin A have helped with my energy and dry eyes amazingly. I was so tired of being fat, miserable and not able to have any energy or lose weight. Although I am healing from a car accident and cannot work out to my ability, yet I have lost 41 lbs so far so easily. I lost 10 lbs in just the first month just by changing my diet, restoring my leaky gut, and learning what healthy eating is. Thank-you Dr. Lisa, you are awesome. You found things that no one ever could find before!” ~Evelyn Sanzone, NJ 

My Allergies, Asthma, Gustatory Rhinitis and IBS  Improved Amazingly!

“This program was a pivotal point in my life. I’ve had allergies and asthma for decades, as well as other medical issues. After developing gustatory rhinitis, it felt like the traditional medical approach was simply adding more prescriptions and documenting my decline. I stopped taking the prescription medications (and informed the specialist). In desperation, I chose to try a different approach. I had nothing to lose. I’m so glad my chiropractor recommended Dr Lisa Sulsenti! She was honest, realistic, and very positive. I have learned so much from her and now have tools I can use.  Improvement came quickly and exceeded my hopes. My only goal was to find a way to quiet the gustatory rhinitis. Well, so much more than that happened!!  The gustatory rhinitis has quieted down, allergies and asthma are doing very well, my nasal passages are clear for the first time in over a decade, my IBS quieted down, and I started losing weight. Dr Lisa taught me a lot, but it’s her way of providing simple phrases I could easily recall and hold onto that made the difference. She is always very supportive and caring. Thank you!” ~Dorothea Clark, NJ
