lol and don´t forget the vagina part. OK Elph, an infection can and will cause leaky gut, And it does not need to be an intestinal infection. Yes parasites and candida cause it too. Stress and low adrenal hormones will cause it too. Celiac disease causes it too. Exposure of the gut lining to toxic substances will create a disrupted intestinal lining too. NSAIDs cause it as well. Lots of things cause an inflammed and leaky gut. But our interest lays in how to treat it. Erradicating pathogenic bacteria and getting high number of the beneficial ones is very important in addressing it, but so is rebuilding and soothing the GI tract.
