Leaky gut syndrome is an autoimmune and inflammatory process caused by ingesting a poor diet. The poor diet causes inflammation of the lining of the gut. This further produces increase permeability of the gut lining such that nutrients do not get absorbed and instead leak out through the gut into the interstitium where they are actived upon by our immune system causing an autoimmunity. Patients complain of a variety of symptoms such as headache, anxiety, depression, abdominal pain, abdominal cramping, abdominal bloating, and joint pain.
