Leaky gut tends to simply be the straw that broke the camel’s back.

Let me explain this to you.

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?

First, nice job tracking. I commend you for it.

But maaaayyyyybbeeeee you just need a better tracking system?

I have one ready for you. Your 90-day journal is here! Grab yours to see new changes happen.

Okay, but beyond that, there is still more.

Here is how I will typically answer the question.

In fact, it’s more of a scenario that I describe.

And it looks like this:

  1. You had dairy and didn’t react.
  2. Then, you had sugar and didn’t react.
  3. Next, you had gluten and didn’t react.
  4. You were stressed and still didn’t react.
  5. You took NSAIDs like they were going out of style (because, pain) and again, no reaction.
  6. (and so on….)
  7. But then, you had a “simple meal.” You came down with an awful sickness, and felt bloated, then gassy, then bloated some more. In fact, you may have felt ultra-fatigued, brain fog, developed skin problems, struggled with joint pain, etc.

That “simple meal” may not have been the culprit at all, but instead was merely the straw that broke the camel’s back.

Leaky Gut

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.

Instead, the problem is all the “little” things we fail to do and recognize daily

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).

Over time, with compounded elements, the gut becomes leaky.

Ultimately, leaky gut leads to disease. Or at least it can.

How do I know all this? 

because i was the face of that vicious cycle.

Several years ago I was told I had leaky gut, and ultimately, IBD (Colitis). Perioral Dermatitis also accompanied it, along with SIBO, a low-functioning thyroid and “adrenal fatigue.”

I was there (prior to) my camel’s back breaking; I’ve been there during the break and I healed it all.

Furthermore, I WROTE A BOOK on leaky gut! It’s called, The Leaky Gut Meal Plan: 4 Weeks to Detox and Improve Digestive Health.

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. 

But guess what? In just THREE days, changes start taking place.

And I’m here to help!

If you’re still reading this post, here are some things to consider today:

  1. Start with any of THESE resources.
  2. Stop Making This One Food Journaling Mistake
  3. The First Three

  1. I’ve been having digestive issues lately. I just went to the Doctor yesterday and had to get blood work done and leave a stool sample. Fingers crossed I figure out what the cause is soon! Is your leaky gut under control now?

    1. Under control? Yes. Completely healed? Absolutely not. I lived a very unhealthy life for 25 years. I’m a work in progress – daily. I typically feel 95%, BUT that does not mean I’m healed. I know so in many other ways!

    1. At least you’re honest with your answer: “I can’t remember.” So many just cover it up, thinking the problem will go away on its own. It doesn’t. I am a little more than half full already. Would love to have you join, Erin!
