Since we are dealing with the digestive system, it just makes sense that we have to make healthy dietary changes to help repair the intestinal lining and recreate the tight junctions in the digestive system.

Lifestyle issues, especially managing stress, is another important piece of the treatment plan. The digestive system is sometimes called the second brain because there are so many nervous system connections associated with the gut that include not only digestion but emotional responses as well.

Resolving the symptoms of leaky gut syndrome are possible and can be life-changing. The key is having a knowledgeable doctor helping you create a treatment plan that includes the right lifestyle and diet changes.

The last, and maybe most important, component is patience. It takes time for the digestive system to get back on tract! (Couldn't help the pun.)
