Leaky Gut, Autoimmune Disease & Diet

Leaky Gut, Autoimmune Disease & Diet Course Description:

  • Over 24 M Americans suffer from autoimmune disease and the prevalence is rising. Researchers have identified 80-100 different autoimmune diseases and autoimmunity is the number 2 cause of chronic illness in the US. The term Leaky Gut Syndrome is used to describe the condition of “Hyperpermeable Intestines,” a term that means the intestinal lining has became more porous and no longer functions properly. The result of this change in permeability status of the gut is now being explored in its relationship to diseases such as autoimmune disease, neurodegenerative changes, and gastrointestinal disorders. The nutritional management of autoimmune diseases usually emphasizes controlling pain and inflammation, slowing the progression of the disease, and boosting the immune system. Today, a few promising diets, select foods and nutrients are emerging as potentially beneficial. This seminar explores the research linking autoimmune disease, leaky gut and autoimmune diet protocols.
