These are very common complaints and as many as 20% of the adult population have these symptoms. Did you know that 80% of the immune system begins in the gut, and that neurotransmitter production begins here as well? What is important to know is that the gut is the window to the outside world. Environmental toxins, bacteria, medications and foods are all processed through the gut.
How the body processes them can determine a person’s health. Maintaining a healthy gut is essential for having a healthy body. At New Spring Integrative Medicine, we design individualized treatments for Irritable Bowel Syndrome, acid reflux, Candida, food sensitivities, leaky gut and detoxification. Symptoms of leaky gut are often unrecognized and develop over time.
Understanding the leaky gut phenomenon helps us to understand why allergies and autoimmune diseases develop, and also helps us find safe and effective therapies to bring the body back to balance. Common symptoms include fatigue, brain fog, confusion, constipation, bloating, autoimmune conditions, hidden food and chemical sensitivities. By making good choices through proper nutrition and advanced nutritional supplements, you can change your life.
