When there is an overgrowth of Candida in the large intestines of an individual, leaky gut syndrome can begin to manifest. It is true that Candida albicans and other microbes are naturally occurring flora in the human colon, but their population may sometimes become too large as a result of our poor feeding habits or use of drugs such as antibiotics, and corticosteroids. When this overpopulation occurs, the lining of the intestines, especially the colon may develop holes through which usually paves a way for toxins, parasites and other impurities to leak into the blood stream and cells. There are many methods of treating this condition, and these include: diet, dietary supplements, and colon cleansing.
Gluten and sugar are contained in many of the foods we eat, and when the systemic yeast feeds on these two substances, leaky gut syndrome can be the result. Most of the breads, cereals, pastas, and milk that we eat contain gluten and sugar. Treatment of leaky gut is easier when you do not eat those foods that have gluten and sugar. Some examples of gluten free and sugar free foods are brown rice substitutes for milk, many other popular staple foods, most meats, vegetables, fruits, potatoes, yams and nuts. You will be doing yourself a lot of good by avoiding gluten and sugar-free foods. You may want to know for how long you should continue to avoid these foods. My advice is to avoid them for as long as possible for you but it should not be less than 60 days.
Raw vegetables and non-sweet fruits have some benefit in offloading Candida from your gut. Certain special digestive enzymes that can repair leaky gut are contained in vegetables and fruits. Fruits and vegetables also have many other vitamins and minerals, which aid healthy cell growth.
Some common vegetables used in juicing are kale, parsley, carrots, celery, cucumbers, radishes, garlic and beets while some very useful juicing fruits are bananas, mangoes, papaya, kiwi, oranges, grapefruit, blueberries and strawberries.
Treatment of leaky gut usually erodes the beneficial bacterial floras that are present in the gut, and this flora can be replaced by using probiotics, which are available at most health food stores. Certain digestive enzymes that can also eliminate overgrowth of Candida and leaky gut syndrome are available as dietary supplements, but I usually recommend vegetables and fruits since they have these enzymes naturally.
The fact you should know about leaky gut treatment is that when you colon cleanse, whether with natural methods such as diet or any other method, though I often recommend natural, you have automatically removed Candida from your system, and so many people do not know this secret. And after cleansing, just make sure you avoid gluten, sugar, and all other foods that can encourage the growth of Candida.
