    Treating Leaky Gut Syndrome

    The gut and the brain are deeply connected, sending each other millions of messages a day—and improving the health of one often directly benefits the other.

    A "leaky gut" occurs when your intestinal lining becomes porous, allowing undigested foods and bacteria into the bloodstream. If left untreated, this condition can lead to chronic brain inflammation, which in turn can lead to symptoms of depression, anxiety, and other mental health concerns.

    In other words, if you suffer from a leaky gut, your mental health may suffer as well. That’s why we treat both, so you can feel better in both mind and body.

    Root Cause Psychiatry

    Our Root Cause program uses innovative testing to identify and treat gut, brain, and immune system dysregulation.


    What is the
    Gut-Brain Connection?

    Your gut and your brain “speak” to one another by sending messages back and forth across the vagus nerve and bloodstream. These messages take the form of neurotransmitters, nutrients, hormones, and more, and help regulate everything from your mood to your appetite to your sleep habits.
    When your gut is healthy, it sends messages that keep your brain and body healthy. When it’s in distress, those messages break down, leading to brain fog and other symptoms. A leaky gut truly straddles the line between mental and physical wellness or illness. Our clinicians help you with both.

    Could leaky gut symptoms be impacting your mood?

    If you are suffering from bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, or other abdominal symptoms, you may have leaky gut syndrome... and if you're also suffering from depression, anxiety, or other mental health concerns, the two conditions may be related.
