Understanding Leaky Gut Syndrome: A Comprehensive Guide by Camarata Chiropractic & Wellness

Published March 13th, 2024 by Dr. Sam Camarata

In our ongoing commitment to holistic health and well-being, Camarata Chiropractic & Wellness, led by Dr. Sam Camarata and our dedicated team including Dr. Brian Dickinson, who also holds a master's in applied clinical nutrition, is keen to shed light on a condition that's gaining attention for its wide-ranging impact on health — Leaky Gut Syndrome.

What is Leaky Gut Syndrome?

Leaky Gut Syndrome, also known as increased intestinal permeability, is a digestive condition in which bacteria and toxins are able to "leak" through the intestinal wall. Our gut lining serves as a barrier controlling what gets absorbed into the bloodstream. An unhealthy gut lining may have large cracks or holes, allowing partially digested food and toxins to penetrate the tissues beneath it. This can lead to inflammation and changes in the gut flora (normal bacteria) and is thought to trigger a cascade of reactions leading to various health issues.

Causes and Symptoms

The exact cause of Leaky Gut is still a topic of research, but it has been linked to several factors, including:

  • Poor diet: High in sugar, alcohol, and processed foods.
  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs): Such as ibuprofen.
  • Chronic stress
  • Toxin overload: Including heavy metals and pesticides.
  • Dysbiosis: An imbalance between beneficial and harmful species of bacteria in the gut.

Symptoms of Leaky Gut can be diverse and include: 

  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Constipation, gas, or bloating
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Brain fog, confusion, difficulty concentrating
  • Skin issues like acne, eczema, or rosacea 
  • Joint pain
  • Widespread inflammation
