Intestinal Permeability – Leaky Gut

Your gut has a single layer of cells to separate it from your blood stream.

Exposure to toxins, stress, inflammatory foods, prescription and over-the-counter drugs, food allergies, food sensitivities, whiplash injuries, concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can create chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation breaks down the gut’s single layer barrier system and holes or openings develop in the gut lining. A leaky gut allows bacteria, toxins, and partially digested foods to enter the blood stream. This condition can create many chronic health conditions and symptoms.

At Lynch Chiropractic we have ways to help your body improve intestinal barrier integrity and improve communication between your Central Nervous System and your gut. Some therapy may include:

  • Non-invasive Vagal Nerve Stimulation with Low Level Laser.
  • Vagal Nerve Stimulation through easy, at-home exercises.

  • Gentle percussion to the abdominal region to reduce fascia adhesions and to improve motility.

  • Functional Health Lab Testing to determine which foods are inflammatory to your body.

  • Nutritional Supplementation. First, it could be used to help heal and seal your gut. Then your nutrients could change to aid digestion.

Easy, Supportive Practices for Digestive Health

Digestion is the process of your body breaking down the food you eat into useful, available energy for your cells to use to carry out their functions and for rebuilding your body and for eliminating waste material.
Practical ways to improve your digestion at home include:

  • Staying hydrated. You should drink at least ½ your body weight in water every day and avoid energy drinks, soda, juice and sugared drinks.

  • Do not eat processed food filled with food dyes and preservatives.

  • Do not excessively drink alcohol.

  • Drink very little water at mealtime to avoid diluting your stomach’s digestive acid and enzymes.

  • Chew your food well to support digestion.

  • Take natural digestive enzymes.

  • Take probiotics away from food to support healthy gut flora.

  • Eat plenty of fiber

  • Exercise. It prevents bloating and keeps things moving.

  • Limit sugar and do not eat or drink sugar substitutes.

  • Make sure you supplement Omega 3’s and limit your Omega 6’s.

  • Eat fermented foods like kimchi, sauerkraut, whole fat probiotic yogurt.

Maintaining a healthy gut and good digestive tract is a huge component to maintaining your health. Since up to 80% of our Immune System lives in the gut, a healthy gut supports a strong immune system. It also provides serotonin to help you feel happy.

Dr. Lynch is the best chiropractor I've ever been to. His gentle technique has helped me with my migraines and chronic pain issues more over the past few months than all of the other doctors that I've seen over the years put together! Dr. Lynch and his staff are wonderful!

Dr. Lynch and his staff have been great to work with for several years. My vertebrae adjustments are gentle and have allowed me the freedom to continue the activities I love. In addition, he listens to his patients and has a holistic approach to one's health.

I cannot say enough about the help I’ve been provided by Dr. Lynch, Terry, and Lisa. I started my journey with them struggling with constant vertigo/vestibular problems, achiness, fatigue, brain fog, sensitivity to light and sound, inflammation, anxiety, back and hip pain…some of these struggles I’ve had for 20+ years. I thought I had to live that way, but sought Dr. Lynch with a small glimmer of hope. Dr. Lynch took the time to thoroughly go over my X-rays and explained the visible issues I had, some dating back 25+ years. From the very first adjustment, I felt immediate relief of symptoms I’d had for so long, I didn’t know how life was without them. I woke up the next day and couldn’t believe that nearly all of my symptoms were completely gone! Dr. Lynch pinpointed some health issues I didn’t know were causing problems and has worked consistently (along with Terry), using a detailed plan of action, to help relieve so many of my symptoms by getting to the root problems. He has even helped me sort out some diet issues that were causing inflammation, to get me to feeling my best! They are kind, listen, never rush me, and I am 100% positive that they actually care and WANT me to feel better (not keep me sick)! I will never view healthcare the same after the type of care and empowering knowledge I’ve received at Lynch Chiropractic. I tell everyone I can about them and highly recommend their practice to everyone who is seeking answers, a truly holistic approach, and the most excellent care.

I have been seeing Dr. Lynch for several months for pain in my shoulder and arm. After an initial consultation, he has seen me routinely ever since then and his treatments have considerably eased my pain. I can move my arm and shoulder without discomfort because of his dedication and gentle care. In addition, he is a great teacher, offering advice on exercise and diet. His staff has taught me various ways to help other chronic conditions. They have much to offer anyone who is interested in moving toward a more holistic lifestyle. I highly recommend Dr. Lynch and his caring staff.
