Understanding the connection between microbiota, zonulin, coeliac disease and autoimmunity.
How do we assess patients for intestinal permeability? Naturopath, Beth Bundy takes us through functional pathology options.
Bloating, foul-smelling wind, chronic abdominal discomfort, nausea, even malnutrition. These are all symptoms of SIBO - Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth.
Recent research indicates that food additive consumption and its consequent influence on intestinal permeability may be to blame for the rise in autoimmune conditions.
Taking time from his busy schedule presenting for the 4th Annual BioCeuticals Research Symposium, Dr Alessio Fasano spoke to Andrew about his discovery of zonulin and what it means for a wide variety of medical conditions.
Probiotics have a plethora of applications. In this podcast we explore some medically diagnosed conditions for which they are clinically appropriate.
Even though the liver is considered the primary organ of detoxification, the integrity of the intestinal epithelial barrier must not be underestimated. The gastrointestinal tract (GIT) is a major site for dealing with toxic burden. Over the course of a lifetime, the GIT processes more than 25 tonnes of food, which represents the largest load of antigens and toxins confronting the human body.
Exciting new research is helping us understand how a broad spectrum probiotic may also play a role in the prevention and management of obesity and metabolic disorders.
