Here are some options for the treatment of leaky gut syndrome. Tina Marcantel is a naturopathic doctor in Gilbert, Arizona, who also serves the East Valley cities of Mesa, Scottsdale, Tempe, Chandler, Apache Junction, and Queen Creek, and the greater Phoenix area.
Let’s talk a little bit about the treatment protocol.
One of the things that I suggest is getting on a very good quality probiotic. The gut flora is usually abnormal, so the probiotics help to normalize the gut flora.
Also, another product that we use is called GI Support. It’s actually immunoglobulins that help bring these gap junctions back into a tighter place, so what happens is that the bacteria and toxins can’t go through that mucosal lining. Those are the main products we use.
And, of course, a very important thing to do is reduce the inflammation by avoiding the foods that you tested positive for on your food sensitivity panel.
