If you decide you have this, you'll never fell well again. ...Read more

What are all the known causes of leaky gut syndrome?

Be discerning: The claim that an extra-permeable gut admits "poisons" into the blood that cause most if not all known health problems was based on some real scientific work from the 1980's but has become a cult / pop diagnosis. It's found almost no acceptance among scientific physicians; the burden of proof's on its proponents. Self-diagnose with it and you'll never feel well again. ...Read more

How many people are diagnosed with leaky gut syndrome in the u.S. Every year?

How many people are diagnosed with leaky gut syndrome in the u.S. Every year?

Leaky gut: That is a tricky question because we are not commonly taught about "leaky gut" in allopathic medical training, so it is not a common diagnosis. It is a very common condition in my opinion as an M.D. with certification in Functional Medicine. There is current research at Harvard by Dr Allessio Fasano around this, so it should be more and more recognized by all physicians in the coming years. ...Read more

Why is leaky gut syndrome not accepted by medicine? It seems to make sense-insuf metab molec's enter blood trigger autoimmune complexes etc etc

We are science-based: There are many theories for many disorders, which shows that people are thinking and imagining the possibilities... And that is a great thing. Of course, it is the 21st century now, and no theory should be believed until it is shown to be true. That's the role of scientific research.
