Leaky Gut Atlanta / Intestinal Permeability
A leaky gut, also known as increased intestinal permeability, weakens the intestinal wall lining, allowing toxins, undigested food proteins, and bacteria to leak into the bloodstream causing all sorts of health symptoms.
Several factors can weaken the lining of the gut to cause what is called a leaky gut. These factors are a poor diet, chronic stress, certain medications, and some foods.
A leaky gut can trigger your immune system to respond inappropriately, which causes symptoms like brain fog, anxiety, trouble sleeping, skin eruptions, digestive problems, food sensitivities, fatigue, and autoimmunity.
At Nutritionally Yours near Atlanta, Ga, we will teach you a leaky gut protocol to help improve the health and integrity of your gut.
What are the 5 Warning Signs of Leaky Gut Atlanta?
Individuals with leaky gut in Atlanta may come into our health and wellness clinic with very different symptoms. However, several warning signs are similar when a leaky gut is present.
The first set of warning signs for a leaky gut directly relates to your stomach health. These can range from gas, bloating, diarrhea, or constipation.
The second warning sign of a leaky gut is food reactions or sensitivities. Foods you have eaten most of your life may suddenly cause an adverse reaction.
The third warning sign is usually fatigue. Your energy levels generally drop with a leaky gut due to your immune system working very hard to protect you from the particles leaking into your bloodstream. If your body is constantly under attack, your body will feel worn out, and so can your mind. These attacks can lead to increased joint pain, headaches and confusion.
The fourth warning sign affects your skin. You may have had healthy-looking clear skin and now deal with acne, hives, psoriasis, eczema, or rashes.
The last symptom that tends to show up when there is a leaky gut in our Atlanta patients is a heightened autoimmune response or a weakened immune system. Your immune system is not regulated anymore.

Is Leaky Gut Linked to Anxiety?
Most of my leaky gut patients have some link to brain health symptoms like anxiety, depression, insomnia, or forgetfulness. These neurologic symptoms get triggered by inflammation and toxins leaking into your bloodstream, affecting your brain.
Plenty of research surrounds the gut-brain connection, including a link to dysautonomia. The gut-brain axis affects the nervous system, hormones, and the health of your gut. Any disruption in your gut health can affect the communication link to your brain, affecting your mood and anxiety.
Lastly, your gut is where the happy neurotransmitter serotonin is produced. Serotonin directly affects mood, depression, and anxiety.
