Leaky Gut treatments 

Most patients have some degree of leaky gut, also called increased intestinal permeability, as this barrier is not completely impenetrable. Some of us may have a genetic predisposition and may be more sensitive to changes in the digestive system, but our DNA is not the only one factor. Modern life may actually be the main driver of gut inflammation. There is emerging evidence that the standard American diet, which is low in fiber and high in sugar and saturated fats, may initiate this process. Heavy alcohol use and stress also seem to disrupt this balance.

In Functional Medicine we use an effective approach that we call the 4R program – Remove, Replace, Re-inoculate, and Repair. This approach can be extremely effective when dealing with disbiosis, gut infections, yeast overgrowth, and parasites. The 4 Rs of gut healing is a step by step plan to improve your gut health.
