Both Functional Medicine and Leaky Gut Syndrome are gaining a lot of attention recently. Leaky Gut Syndrome has been well known in Integrative Health circles for many years but has recently made its way into mainstream medicine. It is also referred to as “intestinal permeability” in medical research and there are currently 14,742 studies listed on PubMed.
Functional Medicine considers this area to be a primary root cause for most chronic diseases such as arthritis, autoimmune conditions, thyroid disorders, degenerative neurological conditions, fibromyalgia, etc. “Healing and sealing” the gut and balancing the gut microbiome often causes the reversal of chronic pain and autoimmune diseases.
