Your Gut Vs. You
According to Hippocrates, the father of medicine, “All disease begins in the gut.” 2,500 years later and he has been proven to be right.
The body contains 10 times more bacterial cells than human cells and a vast majority of them are housed in the gut, or gastrointestinal system. When functioning properly, this bacteria is a major proponent to our overall well being. It facilitates communication for:
-And much more
For as powerful the gut is, it is equally fragile. Numerous factors disrupt the gut’s delicate balance and in turn, negatively affects our health. Some of these include excessive use of medications, chemical exposure, and a poor diet.
Join us at our next webinar, The Leaky Gut Solution, on Friday, November 1st at 12:00 pm CDT to learn more about what aggravates leaky gut, how leaky gut hides behind unsuspecting symptoms, and the dangers of leaving it untreated.
A few things to consider:
- There are four billion prescription drugs ingested annually in the United States alone.
- There are 70,000 known chemicals used commercially in the food industry that consumers are in contact with regularly.
- Over 3,000 of these chemicals are directly added into the food supply.
- Approximately 10,000 chemicals are used in food processing, preserving, and storage.
- According to the EPA, the air in our homes are now anywhere between 5 times and 100 times more toxic than that of air outdoors. This, too, is due to the chemicals we use on a regular basis.
These are only a few of the many environmental issues that directly affect the onset and progression of leaky gut syndrome.

A Functional Solution
Leaky gut, or hyperpermeability, is an emerging gastrointestinal condition that has proven to cause dysfunction in nearly all organ systems within the body. The latest research has shown connections between leaky gut and hundreds of medical conditions that are considered untreatable.
Although the damage is clear and the complications are noticeable, leaky gut is still considered a medical mystery. It is commonly being treated with medications that are further aggravating the problem in exchange for temporary relief from symptoms. If this trend continues, leaky gut will persist and may worsen beyond repair.
Fortunately, functional medicine has recognized this dilemma and has conducted research on the appropriate diagnostic tests, treatment methods, and proper recover maintenance in order to provide a true leaky gut solution.
During The Leaky Gut Solution, you will learn how functional medicine works to uncover and treat the root cause behind your discomfort. You will also receive strategies to improve your gut health and the guidance needed to create a treatment plan that caters to your body’s unique needs.
