Renowned gastroenterologist and nutritionist explores the dark bowels of leaky gut and its myriad associations with disease states. He offers practical strategies based on his decades of clinical experience.
Did you ever wonder why people with chronic ill-health usually suffer from multiple diseases? Have you heard of Gut-Immune-Skin-Brain axis?
Gut is the largest immune organ spread over surface area of a football field and with a brain of its own comprising of 100 million nerve cells. The intestinal barrier is designed to be our health fortress. However, it is not a wall of concrete. A microscopic layer of intestinal cells separates the body from hostile fecal environment of trillions of bacteria and toxic substances.
A dysfunctional , leaky barrier can be an invitation to hostile foreign elements. This may result in a defensive fighting posture of inflammation and immune reactions in organs throughout body.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This book is #2 in Digestive Wellness series written by me. My goal is to promote positive health through my writings.
Leaky Gut Syndrome is an issue of importance to us all, whether you’ve heard of it or not. The lining of your small intestine has a big job even though it’s only one cell thick — to allow in nutrients while keeping unwanted microbes, chemicals, molds, and large food molecules out of your bloodstream. When this fails, we have leaky gut, or more correctly, increased intestinal permeability. While not a disease in and of itself, it underlies autoimmune conditions such as celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease.
Leaky gut also plays a role in obesity, mood disorders, how well your hormones work, asthma, eczema, psoriasis, and pain because when we have a leaky gut, we also have leaky skin, leaky lungs, and leaky brains!
Digestion is the river of life. When it fails to flow properly, our cells don’t get the nourishment they need to keep us feeling optimally.
Dr. Minocha has written a comprehensive, yet concise, book on Leaky Gut Syndrome. He describes what it is, what contributes to it, and how it affects us in so many ways. One of the great strengths of this book is the research he has done on how leaky gut underlies such a wide variety of diseases and conditions, ranging from liver disease to neurological conditions, heart disease, arthritis, and diabetes. He takes complex interactions and simplifies them in descriptions and drawings so that anyone can understand them and then he gives you the tools to help heal.
So if you don’t feel exactly the way you’d like to feel, it just may be that this book helps you find your path to well-being.
