In brief: 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.

In brief: Inadequate gut flora
Gut dysbiosis can present as digestive problems, allergies, asthma and eczema.
If untreated it can lead to behavioral and psychiatric problems such as autism, adhd, add, ocd, dyslexia, dyspraxia, schizophrenia, depression, sleep disorders, and autoimmune diseases. Gut and psychology syndrome (gaps) establishes the connection between the gut and the brain. To learn more about gaps go to www.Gaps.Me.
