Symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome – Which Stage Are You In?

There are just so many different and complex, symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome that most folks just can’t grasp them all.

This is why most of the time folks don’t connect their own health problems with Leaky Gut until all else has failed.

I would like to take you through the various stages of Leaky Gut Syndrom and show you how it develops.  I encourage you, if you relate to any of these symptoms, to take your health into your own hands and cure Leaky Gut before it does more damage and things get even worse.

Symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome – Stage 1

Leaky Gut, in its beginning stages, creates harsh inflammation in your digestive system causing considerable damage to the intestinal lining. As that lining becomes more damaged, your body no longer can make the necessary enzymes to not only digest, but also absorb food.

This coupled with a bad diet cause this undigested food to actually feed off all the bad bacteria in your gut. Soon the bad bacteria take over the good bacteria and cause you to experience many of the initial symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome.

Stage 1 Symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome

  • Bloating
  • Constipation
  • Depression
  • Diarrhea
  • Gum Disease
  • Heartburn
  • Intestinal Gas

Typically, at this point in the disease, symptoms aren’t severe enough to cause much worry, so they are usually ignored. But, if the symptoms are somehow recognized, a few changes in diet are often sufficient to stop the damage.

Symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome – Stage 2

At this stage, Leaky Gut is causing the intestinal lining cells to break down and form large gap junctions. These gaps allow the undigested food and substances into your bloodstream instead of sending them through your digestive tract to be further digested.

By the time a person gets to the advanced symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome, they usually hear about the disorder and begin wondering, what is Leaky Gut Syndrome, and why am I having so many difficulties?

Stage 2 Symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome

  • Apparent Food Allergies
  • Attention Deficit Disorders
  • Autoimmune deficiency –early onset
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Dermatitis, Psoriasis and Eczema
  • Digestive Problems
  • Migraines and other Headaches
  • Pain in the joints

Because doctors aren’t trained to look for Leaky Gut Syndrome causes, which could lead to the correct diagnosis, they treat symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome by masking them with drugs. In the meantime, the real problem continues without proper treatment.

Symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome – Stage 3

Without treatment, your immune system will eventually become fatigued – this is what causes the development of autoimmune problems. When this happens, Leaky Gut is even more problematic.

Once severe autoimmune problems begin, they are difficult to stop and even more so reverse. They must now be managed and kept under control to have even a normal quality or improvement of life.

Stage 3 Symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome

  • Arthritis
  • Celiac’s Disease
  • Colitis
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Severe Skin Conditions
  • Systemic Candida, nail Fungus, ringworm, etc.
  • Ulcerative Colitis

It is imperative to not allow Leaky Gut to progress very far because it becomes increasing difficult to heal.  The sooner you begin to educate yourself on healing Leaky Gut Syndrome, and the sooner you begin, the more good it will do.

Also, keep in mind that even though it is relatively simple and common to use other problems as the excuse for such chronic symptoms, the reality is that your body is simply trying to tell you that there is something wrong.  If you listen to your symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome, they will take you to the real problem.
