Leaky Gut Syndrome Affects Hormone Balance

May 7, 2012

I found a very interesting article and explanation on Leaky Gut Syndrome written by Dr. Jeremy E. Kaslow. According to Dr. Kaslow “Leaky Gut Syndrome is a very common problem of modern society in part because of antibiotics and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), like Motrin, Advil, Aleve, Vioxx, etc.¬† While this discussion is not going to focus on the pros and cons of antibiotics or NSAIDs, both damage the natural balance the bowel requires to operate optimally.”

For those of you who may be experiencing adrenal fatigue, you may want to look into Leaky Gut Syndrome as well. “Leaky Gut Syndrome slowly diminishes adrenal function. In the early and middle stages, there is actually an adrenal excess, as measured by excess cortisol output.¬† Eventually, cortisol levels drop and exhaustion develops.”

Most people are not aware that if they are taking vitamins or other supplements and they also are experiencing Candida overgrowth or Leaky Gut Syndrome, the nutrients will not be absorbed by the intestine.
