The intestinal permeability testing or ‘Leaky gut’ test is a simple urine challenge test that is a precise, non-invasive way
of assessing for gastrointestinal mucosal integrity.
Damage to the lining of the gastrointestinal tract (small and large intestine), is common in people with conditions such as food sensitivity
and food allergy, Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, arthritis, coeliac disease and
dermatological conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and acne.
The integrity or gut lining is affected by many things such as stress, gut infections, alcohol, environmental toxins, , poor diet and
medications such as non-steroidal anti inflammatories and antibiotics
If your test shows an increased intestinal permeability, your Naturopath will be able to offer you specific advice on how to repair and
restore your intestinal integrity that will make you feel vital and well and again.
