How I Defeated Leaky Gut and Regained My Health – And You Can Too!
Hi, I’m Dr. Steven Dreyer, DC, FACO, a functional medicine doctor. I’m writing this blog post to share with you the amazing benefits of functional medicine in treating leaky gut, a condition that can lead to a range of health problems, including autoimmune disease, gastrointestinal disorders, brain disorders, unhealthy body weight, food intolerance, headaches, skin disorders, and joint pain.
As someone who has experienced leaky gut, I can attest to the incredible benefits of functional medicine. When I discovered that I had leaky gut, I was experiencing a range of symptoms that were affecting my daily life, including high blood pressure, high blood sugar, high heart rate, elevated cholesterol, excess body fat, poor cognition, poor sleep, joint pain, and depression.
Using functional blood tests, I was able to identify the presence of leaky gut and develop a personalized treatment plan that included dietary modification, food elimination of offending foods, and specialized nutraceutical products to facilitate gut repair. Within just a few weeks, I noticed a significant decrease in my symptoms. My blood pressure, blood sugar, and heart rate all normalized, my body fat decreased, my cognition and sleep improved, and my joint pain disappeared. I felt energized, motivated, and most importantly, healthier than I have in years. I feel much more youthful, even though I am no spring chicken.
There are many reasons for leaky gut including excessive use of antibiotics, anti-inflammatory medications, stress, poor diet, and habitual eating patterns. And surprisingly, leaky gut can exist in someone eating a healthy diet, including organic foods. By identifying these causes and treating the condition using functional medicine, we can help reverse the destructive process of leaky gut.
If you’re struggling with leaky gut, I urge you to consider functional medicine as a viable solution to your health problems. By taking a personalized approach to your treatment, and addressing the underlying causes of your condition, you can achieve a level of health and vitality that you may have never thought possible.
