Course Overview

We have heard that we are what we eat, but more accurately, we are what we assimilate. Leaky Gut or bowel hyper permeability may be a contributing factor of both acute and chronic health conditions. If you or you clients have any autoimmune condition, you don't want to miss this course.

It is estimated that we have 750 trillion different bacteria, yeast, and other micro-organisms colonizing the gastro-intestinal tract. These micro-flora make up three to five pounds of your total body weight. These bacteria are important for healthy metabolism and immune response. Our nutrients are absorbed through the small intestine. Leaky gut occurs when the mucus lining of the small intestine becomes too porous, allowing toxins, food particles and pathogens to enter the blood stream. When there is leakage, first the body loses its ability to absorb nutrients and malnutrition and mineral deficiency occurs. Secondly, toxins and proteins leak out into the blood stream and cause the body to trigger the auto-immune response. Healthy tissue gets inflamed and food allergies result. Thirdly, the lining not produced by good bacteria - probiotics and the bad bacteria and virus invade.
