“Leaky gut is a term that refers to intestinal hyperpermeability and has increasingly become a common health problem for many today.  Leaky gut creates MAJOR issues for the overall body, including autoimmunity.”

The gut, or gastrointestinal system, is truly a gateway to good health.  The gut microbiome is an ecosystem of organisms including bacteria, yeasts, fungi, viruses, and protozoan throughout the digestive tract.

Far beyond just digestive health, the following organ systems are also closely related to gut health: 

  • Immune system
  • Endocrine system
  • Nervous system
  • Circulatory system
  • Integumentary system
  • Respiratory system
  • Reproductive system

“Gut health doesn’t stop at digestion.  The health of our gut affects nearly every system in our body!”

Key Takeaways:

  • There is TEN TIMES the number of bacteria in our body than our own cells and the majority of them are found within our digestive system.
  • The gastrointestinal system contains 90% of the body’s happy hormone, serotonin.
  • Most importantly, approximately 70% of our immune system is housed in our gut!

“Gluten allergies, sensitivities, and intolerances are becoming increasingly more common, “gluten-free” has become the “buzz word” within the health community, and people are finally beginning to understand how dangerous gluten can be for their health.”

“The food pyramid might be out of date and confusing to most.”

Many find they have refigured their food pyramid for convenience, without understanding the harm they are doing to their bodies.  For many, it consists of:

  • Grain at the base;
  • Dairy in the middle;
  • . . . and Sugar at the top.

“To be frank, none of these foods have any business being part of your diet at all.”

In this YOUNGER podcast episode, I will help you wake up to how the majority of our diets are now packaged meals with paragraph-long ingredient lists and labels we can’t understand due to convenience.  We are all busy and cooking takes time, but if this is your situation, just know you may not be eating real food at all!

Here are a couple of alarming facts you should know:

  • The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved approximately 3,000 different food additives, preservatives, and colorings without adequate research on safety!
  • The average person ingests over 150 pounds of additives each year!

The impact based on the fact that such chemicals that have been allowed into our lives is incomprehensible and might be considered experimental.  As we become more and more aware of the consequences of this fake-food lifestyle we begin to recognize it is simply unacceptable!  The disturbing facts above point to only a few key factors in the leaky gut epidemic, but I do find they are the bigger ones!

“Much like the additives and preservatives flooding our food supply, pesticides are also a big part of what’s on our plates.  We know even the strongest gut can’t seem to process and eliminate all of this without help.”
