Intestinal Permeability or Leaky Gut is real and defined as a condition where the lining of the small intestine becomes damaged, causing undigested food particles, toxic wastes and bacteria to "leak" through the intestines and flood the bloodstream setting off a cascade of protective immune responses. One reason why leaky gut has been hard to identify is that its bodily impact is not limited to the gastrointestinal tract – it impacts the brain, thyroid, immune system, skin, and joints and varies based on a person’s genetic and epigenetic expressions.

This Assessment presents questions that your healthcare practitioner can use to determine if further testing for leaky gut is warranted. Assessment brought to you by Dr. Jack Tips (Ph.D., C.C.N.).
