Leaky Gut & Food Sensitivities Treatment in Cincinnati OH
Leaky Gut is a condition in which the tight junctions of the cellular wall of the digestion system have been compromised. Tight cellular junctions control what passes through the intestinal lining. Without those junctions intact there are now substances that can pass through the lining and into the bloodstream that were not intended. These unwanted substances (foods, toxins, etc.) cause an inflammatory response in the body that can lead to many unwanted symptoms and conditions, as mentioned below.
If you have any of the following symptoms, you almost certainly have leaky gut and can benefit from treatment.
Gut infections and imbalances: Parasites, SIBO, yeast overgrowth
Medications: Acid-blocking medications, antibiotics, birth control pills, NSAIDS, prednisone
Mycotoxins (toxic mold)
Radiation / Chemotherapy
Stress: Physical stress (illness, lack of sleep), emotional stress (family, personal, and work pressures)

It’s important to know the difference between a food sensitivity/intolerance and an actual allergy. A food sensitivity is identified via IgG antibody testing. Symptoms of food sensitivities vary, and a reaction can take anywhere from 1 to 72 hours to present in the form of symptoms.
With a blood test we are able to understand the degree of your sensitivity to a food. The goal with this approach is to heal the Leaky Gut so that these foods may be reintroduced into the diet at some point without any adverse reactions.
