Most illnesses start in thegut, including many youwould not even think of!

And if your gut isn't functioning right, it setsthe stage for illness and disease. The gut'thegastrointestinal system'is designed to absorbnutrients that support our bodies andhelp us make energy, and get rid of things thatwe don't need or are toxic. But what happenswhen the system breaks down? Leaky gutsyndrome (LGS) occurs when the lining of thesmall intestine is damaged, allowing foreigncompounds to escape into your bloodstream,which weakens your immune system and triggersautoimmune reactions.

Traditional physicians don't understandwhat LGS is'much less how to diagnose andtreat it. In fact, it is estimated that more than80 percent of people with chronic illnesseshave leaky gut, an overgrowth of bad bacteria,or not enough good bacteria.

Here are some symptoms that may becaused by LGS:

Digestive complaints, acid reflux,IBS, Crohn's disease Joint and muscle pain, arthritis Obesity and food allergies Headaches, depression, anxiety,ADHD Itchy skin, rashes, eczema, acne,rosacea, psoriasis

In Heal Your Leaky Gut , Dr. DavidBrownstein will explain how the gut'like thebrain, heart, and liver'needs to be properlynourished in order for it to function correctly. Simply stated, if your gut is not healthy, your immune system is going to suffer.

Improving your gut health and takingfewer drugs will help you feel better and lookyounger, improve your brain function, andtreat myriad medical conditions. This bookwill give you all the information you need tochange what you are now doing so you canhave optimal gut health and, as a result, overallhealth and well-being.
