Leaky Gut and MS























Image Source: Flickr

No one knows what causes MS. Throughout the world you’ll find as many theories on the causes of autoimmune diseases as you’ll find researchers.

One fairly popular theory states that autoimmune diseases such as asthma, MS, and Lou Gehrig’s disease are caused by either a form of leaky gut syndrome or food sensitivities.

Leaky gut syndrome occurs when intact proteins passed through small spaces between the intestinal walls and enter into the bloodstream. When this occurs, the immune system is activated into attacking these proteins because to the immune system, intact food proteins is an invader. The problem is that these of food proteins also very closely resemble the tissue of the central nervous system. When the immune system attacks the food protein it also attacks the body’s own myelin.

The best ways to keep this from occurring are to first, heal the leaky gut in order to slow down and hopefully prevent intact food proteins from entering the bloodstream. And, second stop eating foods that contain proteins that are known to mimic the self-proteins of the central nervous system.

Many people have a natural vulnerability to developing leaky gut syndrome. Things like eating a food you’re sensitive to, alcohol consumption, infection, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, candida (yeast) overgrowth, and parasites can cause the small spaces in intestinal walls to get larger. This will allow more food proteins to leak into the bloodstream.

One of the most important things when healing a leaky gut is the very careful regarding food sensitivities. It is recommended that all people with MS has a allergy or ELISA test to determine which foods their body reacts to.
