Are you concerned about your gut health? If not, you should be. The health of your digestive system is crucial to the functioning of your immune system. In fact, 70-80% of your immune system is located in your gut. Your stomach is particularly important – it is home to trillions (yes that's right–trillions) of cells that work with the rest of the body to repel foreign invaders and keep you healthy.

However, stomach-related issues can be very mysterious. They may seem to arise suddenly and have no direct or immediate cause. Or you may experience symptoms like rashes, acne, brain fog, anxiety or fatigue, which are seemingly unrelated to what's going on with your digestive system, but in reality, they are connected. The sooner you can restore your gut to balanced function the better, but it could be necessary to try more than one treatment.

Leaky Gut Solutions: What You Need to Know

At the biostation, our experts believe in helping clients achieve optimal health by bringing the body back to a natural state of balance. We’ve developed a number of unique and specialized treatments to heal “leaky gut,” also known as intestinal hyperpermeability.

This chronic health condition causes high levels of inflammation throughout the body and has many uncomfortable symptoms, including diarrhea, gas, bloating and stomach or abdominal pain. However, people with leaky gut often experience no symptoms at all, or symptoms that they would never connect with a gut issue. If you want to find out if you have leaky gut, and heal your microbiome, we offer these options:

Food Sensitivity Testing

People suffering from leaky gut typically have a variety of food sensitivities that they are most likely unaware of. These sensitivities often produce relatively minor gastrointestinal discomfort, thus going unnoticed for months or years. When multiple sensitivities occur together, however, leaky gut syndrome becomes much more likely.

Food sensitivity testing helps uncover sensitivities you may not have been aware of before. After testing, you will receive clear and precise instructions about which foods are likely to contribute to your gut health concerns. Avoiding these foods goes a long way toward restoring peak health.

Dietary Changes

A nutritious, natural and gluten-free diet is the optimal way to manage leaky gut syndrome, however the most effective leaky gut and anti-inflammatory diet will be highly individualized. Starting a leaky gut treatment program at the biostation means you will receive one-on-one guidance from nutrition experts, including myself and Dany Schaper, RN. We will work closely with you to develop a gut-healing diet that suits your needs and lifestyle, and schedule follow up testing and monitoring as needed to ensure these changes are working.

Nutrient IV Therapy and Targeted Supplements

the biostation: How to Heal a Leaky Gut - Nutrient

Many gastrointestinal problems can be caused or made worse by poor nutrition. Even if you strive to eat right, when you have leaky gut, it is impossible to get all the nutrients you need from food because your body isn't absorbing them properly. Nutrient IV Therapy gets targeted nutrition into your body instantly and optimally. By bypassing the gut and infusing your cells with these nutrients, you can guarantee 100% absorption. IV therapy is a must for patients with leaky gut. In particular, the powerful antioxidant glutathione can help detoxify your entire system and get you back on the road to optimal gastrointestinal health.

We also offer targeted, pharmaceutical-grade supplements specifically designed to soothe inflammation, promote good bacteria, and nourish your intestinal wall, like our bVital GI Restore powder and two kinds of probiotics.
