5 Telltale Signs of Leaky Gut Syndrome

5 Telltale Signs of Leaky Gut Syndrome

Digestive issues like constipation, bloating, and cramping can slow you down like nothing else. Often, you feel as if you don’t want to get too far away from a bathroom, should you end up needing one suddenly. That’s no way to live.

Dr. Mandeep Walia-BhatiaDr. Jeremy La Motte, and the caring team at Gain Wellness Center are successful at treating a wide range of conditions, including digestive problems. One of the conditions they address frequently is leaky gut syndrome, a painful, life-limiting problem. 

Their holistic approach to your health means that they leave no stone unturned as they search for the right treatment plan for you.

What is leaky gut syndrome?

Part of the frustration involved with leaky gut syndrome is that this landscape of your body — the gut — remains mysterious in many ways. We do know that leaky gut is related to a permeability problem, or when your intestinal lining is less “air tight” than it should be. 

Uncomfortable leaky gut symptoms include:

Often, symptoms become chronic, which is debilitating. 

Though mainstream medicine has not acknowledged leaky gut syndrome as a bonafide diagnosis, we see its effects every day with our patients, and their discomfort is real. We respect this, which is why we research each patient’s leaky gut symptoms carefully, so that we can provide them with much-needed relief. 

How can I get relief from leaky gut syndrome?

Since we take a functional medicine approach when providing any treatment for the many conditions we treat, we’re dedicated to finding the root cause of your discomfort, noting that everything regarding your health is intertwined — both physical and emotional, and lifestyle factors play a significant part in your health. Your diet, exercise frequency, stress level, and more greatly impact your body’s functioning and your vitality. 

Because of our investigative approach, we delve into other factors you may not initially connect with leaky gut syndrome, such as whether you’ve had abdominal surgery in the last few months, what role your hormones might be playing, and whether you live with a chronic condition like diabetes. 

Before we create a treatment plan, we advise that you receive our complete wellness evaluation, a thorough analysis of your health that is, quite importantly, completely personalized. We find that this is the most important springboard for successful treatment of any chronic health problem, as opposed to treating symptoms with a “band-aid” approach. 

The evaluation is the blueprint we use when creating your treatment plan, which may offer guidance on:

When you’re armed with a treatment program that’s shaped around your own unique needs and symptoms, you’ll be amazed at the uptick in your energy and wellbeing. Your leaky gut symptoms abate, and you are able to enjoy life again.
