In our first installment, we learned the signs of leaky gut.

The N.I.H. informs us that leaky gut can be observed in many “diseases that directly affect the gut, including IBS, Crohn’s disease, and celiac disease.” It can be caused by medications that irritate the stomach lining: NSAIDS, antibiotics, or steroids. The bad news is that the cure is what may really be ailing you: ingestion of pain relievers can lead to or create “the inflammation cycle which leads to intestinal permeability.”

“The key to healing a leaky gut is changing your diet and eliminating the foods that your body considers toxic. On the advice of my nutritionist, I eliminated gluten, dairy, soy, refined sugar, caffeine and alcohol.” (HealthyWomen.org)

You’ve probably been advised that it will require time and patience to follow an elimination diet and identify those foods or beverages to which you are allergic. Your symptoms may persist while you and your health care provider collaborate to find a solution. CharcoCaps will provide quick, effective relief from the pain and discomfort of intestinal gas.
