Autism Treatment - Leaky Gut, Part 2 of 3

In my previous articles I have discussed the issue of leaky gut, what happens to make the gut leaky and what problems it can cause such as inflammation and over active immune response. Now I want to go over some of the ways caused and some helpful ways to diagnose as well. There are several different causes of leaky gut, trauma is one. A traumatic injury to the gut can include things like chemical insult or chemical injury. Even our food can cause it. A diet right in foods high in oxalates can also contribute to leaky gut. Oxalates are compounds found in many leafy greens and other foods. A chemical imbalance can be caused by absorption of too many oxalates and can disrupt the normal gut function. And of course inflammation is a very large cause. Anything that can perpetuate inflammation, including infections, food sensitivities, and even auto immune disorders like ulcerative colitis and Crohn's can lead to leaky gut. They all stress and wear down the digestive tract which leaves it inflamed and prone to syndrome.

There are diagnostics test out there that show whether or not leaky gut is probable or not. However, from a diagnostic standpoint, a 100% certain determination is not always easy to obtain. But there are tests out there that indicate whether this is a likelihood or not through the use of a urine test that can measure the absorption of certain chemicals. It is very important for me to make you aware that leaky gut is a real phenomena. And this is individual and can happen to different people in varying degrees. It also is not just associated with Autism. This can happen to people on the Autism spectrum, it can happen to people who suffer from other neurological disorders, it can happen to people who suffer from chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. Leaky gut is an issue that we commonly discuss in regards to digestive problems. Inflammation of the digestive tract and underlying infection contribute to this very real problem called leaky gut. And in part 3 of my series I will cover how it can be treated.

Autism really is treatable! Biomedical Autism treatments and therapies have resulted in many, many children improving, or even even losing their autism-spectrum disorder diagnosis.
