In this specialist article we deal with the Leaky Gut Syndrome in a well-known holistic and evidence-based manner.
This clinical picture is expressed by a impaired barrier function of the small intestine wall . As a result, pathogenic microbes and toxins get from the intestine into the bloodstream , which is often a trigger for a variety of complaints and diseases  is.
We clarify the following questions in this article:

One of the main functions of the small intestine is to process the food it consumes and to transfer the nutrients into the bloodstream .
The content of the intestine itself is harmful for the body, as it consists, among other things, of foreign substances from food, special microbes and toxins (poisons) .
The intestinal wall acts as a barrier between intestinal contents and blood circulation, so that harmful substances are processed in the intestine in a protected manner and not get into the rest of the body .
The intestine decides in an intelligent way which substances it excretes, which it converts and which it directs into the bloodstream. The most common mechanism is that the intestinal wall transports the substances that are to be absorbed through the intestinal cells. Basically, only strongly reduced substances, such as glucose, trace elements, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fat cells, can get into the body .
Since the intestinal cells are closely connected by protein connections, the so-called “tight junctions“, larger substances cannot pass through. In Leaky Gut Syndrome, the function of these connecting proteins is disturbed. This means that larger substances can enter the bloodstream, which the intestine would normally excrete or convert .
The term “leaky gut” as an independent clinical picture is not yet widespread in medicine and is more ascribed to alternative medicine . Many doctors are familiar with this syndrome, but use different terms. They speak more of a disturbance of the intestinal permeability, of a disturbed intestinal barrier or an increased permeability of the intestinal mucous membrane .
However, the basic existence of this dysfunction is undisputed.
Many people suffer from parasites in the intestine, mostly without knowing it . Whether you could also be affected can be found out quickly and free of charge using our online parasite test.
Parasites are life forms that derive a one-sided benefit from living with the host and damage their health .
In the intestine, parasites actively attack the intestinal wall in order to penetrate through the smallest holes into the bloodstream and thus optionally into all organs of the human body . There they settle and spread. The consequence is a systemic parasite infestation .
However, parasites can also passively trigger and promote the leaky gut syndrome. Intestinal parasites release toxins into the intestines, which are harmful to the „Tight junctions“ between the intestinal mucosal cells :
Intestinal worms store environmental toxins such as aluminum or mercury in their bodies . When released, these toxins can cause inflammation in the gut, which promotes a leaky gut .
In addition, parasites phagocytize beneficial bacteria in the intestine . These important microbes protect not only the intestinal mucosa , butalso inhibit “negative” intestinal bacteria . Due to parasitic influence, the harmful bacteria multiply to a pathogenic level, which in turn has a negative effect on the permeability of the intestinal wall .
The parasitically induced intestinal fault symbiosis has another consequence:
Together with the parasites, the “negative” intestinal bacteria create a film of mucus, the so-called Biofilm .
The Biofilm consists toxic mucus secretions of pathogenic intestinal bacteria and parasites . So there is a poisonous film on the intestinal wall.
The permanent release of toxins from the biofilm damages the “tight junctions” . In addition, the areas of the intestinal wall covered by this dry, which can cause further damage .
The biofilm enables harmful bacteria and parasites to survive in the intestine by protecting them from the effects of drugs and other substances that are harmful to them .
Certain foods can cause damage to the intestinal wall, especially with a corresponding predisposition .
Any food that cannot be digested forms fusel alcohol . These act as solvents on the tight junctions .
Because parasites kill positive intestinal bacteria, the food can no longer be sufficiently decomposed. Fusel alcohol forms, which dissolve the tight junctions.
Sugar damages the intestinal wall and promotes inflammation in the intestine . In addition, he lets intestinal fungi grow, which in turn can promote Leaky Gut . A high-carbohydrate diet with grains and sugar also promotes parasites in the intestines .
Parasites can trigger cravings and through the manipulation of dopamine promote malnutrition. We have compiled further information for you here.
Pesticides in plant and animal foods inhibit “positive” intestinal bacteria  and thus promote “negative” bacteria and parasites in the intestine . Among other things, health-promoting bacterial strains have the task of controlling parasite infestation  .
Through water, air, food and other factors, we ingest ever larger amounts of environmental toxins , which can cause damage and inflammation in the intestine .
According to Dr. Dietrich Klingardt represent environmental toxins like aluminum at the same time the largest growth factor for parasites .
Persistent negative stress causes positive intestinal bacteria to a high degree perish  and promotes the spread of parasites in the body. Three mechanisms are responsible for the latter:
also supports the body
Parasites promote the release of cortisol in the body and thus put it in chronic stress .
By taking antibiotics or passive exposure, e.g. by meat from factory farming , positive intestinal bacteria are inhibited . This can lead to leaky bowel syndrome and the spread of parasites in it.
Parasites manipulate and in turn weaken the immune system, so that pathogenic bacteria can more easily cause disease. Doctors are inclined to prescribe antibiotics again .
Radiation and electrosmog (e.g. mobile phone or WiFi) kill positive intestinal bacteria  and, according to alternative practitioner Alan E. Baklayan, represent one of the largest growth factors for parasites .
The overall context clearly shows that parasites play a decisive role in every known cause of leaky gut syndrome. They damage the intestines actively, passively and through various other factors.
The empirical values collected and evaluated in our association show that a leaky intestine in all cases known to us by a Parasite treatment has been cured.
If parasites are removed sustainably from the intestine, the leaky gut closes as well.
Whether you have a parasite infestation can be found quickly and easily with our free parasite test. Please do the test now to detect an infestation:
In addition to parasites, the diet is a major factor in the development of a leaky intestine.
Those foods and additives which studies show damage the intestinal wall and thus lead to leaky gut syndrome are :
First and foremost, those affected should have a holistic parasite cure perform to the Root cause to fix the Leaky Gut Syndrome.
In addition to the Treatment of intestinal parasites correct nutrition is important for the healing of the holey intestine.
We generally recommend a ketogenic diet. Only very few carbohydrates (max. 30g / day), but many fats are consumed in this. Since the cells no longer receive glucose (made by the body from carbohydrates), they begin to burn ketone bodies (made from fats) for energy. The metabolism is in “ketosis“.
Foods that we particularly recommend at Leaky Gut are:
Since we are repeatedly asked whether the product Nutravya “Nutra Digest” by Dr. Perez has an effect on leaky gut syndrome, we took a closer look at this remedy:
The positive reports on the manufacturer’s website were published with photos from a photo database. As a result, we have doubts about the authenticity of the reports. There are many negative experiences about Nutra Digest on the internet.
2.) The ingredients
The ingredients are Kombucha extract and artificial Vitamin E. This can not bring about a healing of the leaky gut. Synthetic vitamin E also contains mirror isomers, which are carcinogenic .
3.) The side effects
Many users report abdominal pain after taking Nutra Digest. This could be due to the poor quality of the product.
4.) The effect
It can no effect be detected.
5.) The seriousness
According to customer statements, there seem to be problems with order processing.
The first and most important step of a leaky gut treatment is the implementation of a holistic parasite cure.
You can find out what such a cure looks like and what you should pay attention to in our large parasite cure guide:
If performed correctly, this therapy removes the cause of the leaky bowel and the bowel can move into the healing phase.
This can be supported by the following measures:
Yes absolutely. It is important that the cause (parasites) is eliminated and then the intestine can be healed by itself or with the help of the right diet and nutritional supplements.
We recommend our medical Leaky-Gut-Online-Test.
The leaky gut syndrome describes a clinical picture in which toxic parts of the intestinal contents enter the bloodstream.
One Parasitenkur takes 6 to 12 weeks. It usually takes up to 12 months for the leaky gut to heal completely. However, only if the parasites have been permanently removed from the body, otherwise no cure is possible.
First and foremost, we advise you to rectify the cause. To do this, intestinal parasites in particular have to be eliminated. The intestines can then often heal on their own.
Here you will find a list of permitted foods.
Here see a list.
Yes – if there is a leaky intestine, lectins should be avoided. Foods High in Lectins:
Yes, there are good doctors who can be consulted if the intestine is leaky, e.g.
Food supplements are not absolutely necessary to heal the leaky intestine. However, they can be used in addition. We recommend the following supplements:
Ripe bananas and plantains are good for the intestines. Unripe bananas, on the other hand, damage the intestines and can promote leaky gut.
The best intestinal yogurt is raw, fermented goat yogurt.
Yogurt is good for the intestines because it contains positive intestinal bacteria.
Teas made from:
Alcohol can damage the intestinal wall directly. That is why it should definitely be avoided in the case of leaky intestines.
We advise against all grains, including oatmeal, in the event of a leaky intestine.
Nein, es gibt keine sichere Diagnose, sondern nur Anzeichen für das Leaky Gut-Syndrome.
No, a cure for Leaky Gut Syndrome is complex. Medicines can therefore not help.
Yes, there are some illnesses that can be caused by leaky gut syndrome. Here we have published an overview.
The proteohormone leptin has no known correlation with leaky gut.
In our association we have nutrition plans and even a cookbook. Comment below this article if you are interested.
A quick healing is not possible. A genesis can be expected after 12 months at the earliest.
No, the damage to the intestinal wall is microscopic.
We have made the experience that Leaky Gut can be cured if the cause is eliminated and patience is brought along. However, LG cannot be remedied quickly and hectically.
Our experience is that homeopathy has no effect on leaky intestines.
Nutritional therapy can support the healing of the leaky gut if the cause (often intestinal parasites) has been eliminated beforehand. Proper nutrition is a cornerstone of the healing process for leaky gut syndrome.
“Leaky Gut: Healing the Permeable Intestine” by Dirk Schweigler offers good advice. Combine this information with a parasite cure. Internationally we recommend the book “Colon Leaky Gut” by Dr. Camilleri.
We recommend a ketogenic diet that is poor in lectin, solanine, and histamine
Yes, if children are malnourished, it is possible. A change in diet for the child is required.
Yes, the best home remedies at Leaky Gut are:
