Our gut does the most important job after we eat. It is a very powerful part of the body that affects so many internal systems in the best or worst possible ways. Do you know that millions of people have a leaky gut syndrome, and they don’t even know about it?
Leaky Gut Treatment in Modern Medicine
Unfortunately, doctors often overlook the importance of gut microbiome and get rid of us quickly trying to cure the symptoms. They prescribe a quick fix-it-all pill. While I truly respect modern medicine, I also believe that holistic methods are effective, and in many cases proactive when it comes to gut health. Maybe because I grew up in Soviet Russia where any malady was cured by hand-picked herbs and roots? Never having taken any drugs till the age of 21, I was pretty impressed with all the “band-aid” solutions for…pretty much anything when it comes to modern illnesses.
Don’t get me wrong, please. Hats off to doctors – they do an amazing job on saving lives – but let’s focus on the main issue here. Our nutrition causes problems to our gut. On top of other problems with conventionally prescribed routines (high-carbohydrate, low-fat and “cholesterol inducing” diets), the number of people unaware of their gut problems is growing. There are other factors besides from poor nutrition that can affect our gut flora and functions, and we need to get more educated about them. Anyone can truly benefit from this knowledge and help to prevent the leaky gut syndrome.
