Most illnesses start in the gut, including many you would not even think of!
If your gut isn’t functioning right, it sets the stage for illness and disease. The gut, the gastrointestinal system, is designed to absorb nutrients that support our bodies and help us make energy, and get rid of things that we don’t need or are toxic. But what happens when the system breaks down? Leaky gut syndrome (LGS) occurs when the lining of the small intestine is damaged, allowing foreign compounds to escape into your bloodstream, which weakens your immune system and triggers autoimmune reactions.
Traditional physicians don’t understand what LGS is, much less how to diagnose and treat it. In fact, it is estimated that more than 80 percent of people with chronic illnesses have leaky gut, an overgrowth of bad bacteria, or not enough good bacteria.
Here are some symptoms that may be caused by LGS:
- Digestive complaints, acid reflux, IBS, Crohn’s disease
- Joint and muscle pain, arthritis
- Obesity and food allergies
- Headaches, depression, anxiety, ADHD
- Itchy skin, rashes, eczema, acne, rosacea, psoriasis
In Heal Your Leaky Gut, Dr. David Brownstein will explain how the gut, like the brain, heart, and liver, needs to be properly nourished in order for it to function correctly. Simply stated, if your gut is not healthy, your immune system is going to suffer.
Improving your gut health and taking fewer drugs will help you feel better and look younger, improve your brain function, and treat myriad medical conditions. This book will give you all the information you need to change what you are now doing so you can have optimal gut health and, as a result, overall health and well-being.

This is one of the best Leak Gut reference books that I have ever read. I never knew that a leaky gut could cause acne, skin problems, allergies, achy mustles/joints and more health issues. Dr. Brownstein explains all the tests he requests and why, he shares the diatary questionnaire that he asks patients, he goes into detail about how each organ in your gut works and what its purpose is. And the best part of the book is his Healthy Gut Diet plan that he recommends. If you have been diagnosed with any of those aliments or Leaky Gut, this is the book for you. I guarantee you will enjoy knowing the how and whys to the Leaky Gut and best of all knowing how to cure it.
