In brief: Leaky bowel

It is believed that a leaky gut basically is one that has abnorrmal permeability allowing toxic factors from inside the gut tract to make you sick.
Most mainstream doctors don't agree and it is more popular in europe than here. Some of the earliest surgury was to remove the colon for a "leaky gut" around 1920.
