Is your Colon unintentionally poisoning you?
Your intestinal tract or gut has many functions. It produces enzymes that work to digest the food you eat and carries this digested food across the gut lining and into the blood stream. It helps to detoxify your body by removing waste and toxins and it contains antibodies which act as your first line of defense against infection.
The small intestine, while it works to nutrify you may also, in fact, be inadvertently making you sick!
Often, due to bad diet, food allergies, overuse of medications, ingestion of preservatives and environmental toxins, stress or infection, the gut lining weakens, becomes inflamed and damaged and becomes more permeable. Instead of protecting your body from the poisons within, it begins to allow the poisons to leak out into your blood. These leaked particles are often much larger than what the blood stream recognizes and so the body sets up an immediate immune response creating antibodies, placing undue stress on your liver and other immune organs. This is called Leaky Gut Syndrome and is one of the most common causes of undiagnosed sickness in America today.
