Leaky Gut and Intestinal Permeability Part 1 — Definition, Symptoms, and Causes

So much has been written about leaky gut that is has almost become a household phrase. “Hi Mom, how’s your leaky gut today?” Well, maybe it’s not that well established, but we can tell you that when our medical team started in practice, most doctors in the conventional medical field considered leaky gut to be holistic quackery.

That doesn’t account for the amounts of soft drinks, chips, crackers, and tasty desserts that will be consumed over the long holiday weekend.

Celebrating the holidays with family and friends and sharing snacks, meals, desserts, and beverages of all kinds are great ways to relax, release tension, and rejuvenate our minds. But depending on what we eat and drink, and how much, and what we do before and after, a long party weekend can take its toll on the body.

4th of July Eating recover recommendations
