A leaky gut is no joke.
I can’t tell you the number of times someone has said to me, “I have been tracking what I eat for awhile now, but I just can’t seem to figure out what is causing me to still react?”
The answer goes something like this:
- You had dairy and didn’t react
- You had sugar and didn’t react
- You had gluten and didn’t react
- You were stressed and didn’t react
- You took NSAIDs like they were going out of style and didn’t react
- You failed to get any type of movement into your life and didn’t react
- (and so on….)
- And then you had soy and you got sick; bloated, then gassy, then bloated some more -> you may have gotten ultra fatigued, developed skin problems, struggled with joint pain, etc.
The soy may not have been the culprit at all, but instead was merely the straw that broke the camel’s back.
Like so many things in life, have you ever noticed that sometimes it’s that thin, little straw – the one you never pay attention to – that can make our bodies go haywire? We are strong for so long, but in an instant, one little thing can change everything.
The problem is not this “little” thing. The problem is all the “little” things we fail to do and recognize daily. (See also: The Little Things Add Up.)
And after these little things have all added up, the camel’s back breaks from a “single action” (The ” ” was necessary because it is not truly a single action, but instead a series of actions, where that single action acted as the climatic point). Leaky gut has then made a safe haven in your body. Ultimately, leaky gut leads to disease.
How do I know all this? –> right here, I’m the face of the vicious cycle. Several years ago I was told I had leaky gut, and ultimately, IBD (Colitis). I can *promise you* I know exactly what I’m talking about because I’ve been there (prior to) my camel’s back breaking, I’ve been there during the break and I’m here now healing – daily.
Leaky gut doesn’t take days to heal. Leaky gut can take months and even years to heal. Years of damage simply can’t be undone in a few days.
Do me a favor today and consider….

I will be talking about leaky gut much more in the coming months. There is so much to it.
You will heal. I will help.
