Bloated? Tired? Crabby? Do you suspect that you may have leaky gut?

A leaky gut happens when part of our intestinal lining (over 4,000 square feet of surface area) gets damaged.

When it’s working properly, tight barriers keep food particles from going into the bloodstream.

Yet a crack or tear in the gut lining allows partially digested food, toxins, and harmful bacteria to penetrate your blood stream and cause widespread havoc.

This may trigger chronic inflammation and detrimental changes in the gut flora (normal bacteria) that could lead to problems within the digestive tract, your immune system, and even your brain!

And plenty of studies show that this can even lead to chronic diseases like autoimmune disorders…. EEEK!

Right now, you are probably thinking, what am I doing to cause a leaky gut?

You may not realize it… but probably PLENTY.

Since many people aren’t taught the proper way to eat for gut health, it’s natural to make mistakes.

So step 1 is to limit inflammatory foods, then step 2 is to incorporate healing foods – and while this should be standard knowledge among health professionals…. oftentimes, it’s not 😟

Grains, pseudo-grains (like amaranth, buckwheat, and quinoa), nightshades, as well as other foods listed below can massively inflame the lining of your small intestines and thus create the prime condition for chronic illness!

🍞 Gluten

🥛 Dairy

🌾 Certain grains

🍆 Nightshades

🍬 Sugar

🍷 Alcohol

☕ Caffeine

🧬 GMOs

🍯 Artificial sweeteners

🥫 Packaged gluten-free or dairy-free foods that usually have tons of added sugars
