    Default 4 Steps to Heal Leaky Gut and Autoimmune Disease

    Leaky gut syndrome is a rapidly growing condition that millions of people are struggling with and don't even know it. From the sound of it, you might think leaky gut only affects the digestive system, but in reality it can lead to many other health conditions.
    According to research, leaky gut could be the cause of your food allergies, low energy, joint pain, thyroid disease, autoimmune conditions and slow metabolism.
    In this article I will outline specifically how you can heal leaky gut syndrome and breakthrough the health problems you've been struggling with.
    What is Leaky Gut Syndrome?

    Think of the lining of your digestive tract like a net with extremely small holes in it that only allow specific substances to pass through. Your gut lining works as a barrier keeping out bigger particles that can damage your system.
    When someone has leaky gut (often referred to as increased intestinal permeability) the "net" in your digestive tract gets damaged, which causes even bigger holes to develop in your net, so things that normally can't pass through, are now be able to. Some of the things that can now pass through include proteins like gluten, bad bacteria and undigested foods particles. Toxic waste can also leak from the inside of your intestinal wall into your blood stream causing an immune reaction.1

    Good article. It indicates that quercetin has been shown to strengthen and seal the gut barrier. I've read that cucumbers are high in quercetin. Right now we're getting a ton of cukes from the garden. I've been fixing them almost every night in a salad with garden tomatoes. Yum.

    I always add a fair bit of cucumber to vegetable juice. Didn't know it had quercetin, but it is supposedly alkaline which is good for your bones. If you have a lot of cucumbers growing, this will use them up faster!

    I could drop some cucumber in a morning shake.

    Try Japanese pickles. Dead easy. Slice cukes and arrange in layers in a bowl. Lightly salt each layer. You can also add dill or other herbs of choice. Lay a plate right on top of the cukes. (Pick one that will fit snugly inside the bowl.) Put a weight, such as a brick, on top of the plate. Refrigerate. Pour the water off as it accumulates. The longer you refrigerate the pickles, the crisper they become. I prefer to peel the cukes first because this method toughens the skin, but you don't necessarily need to.
