A leaky gut is a condition that occurs when there is damage to the lining of the intestinal wall (overuse of antibiotics, birth control pills, elevated mercury or lead levels, crohn's disease, celiac disease, improper gut flora...many things can start it.) In a nutshell, it becomes perforated, allowing food (and bacteria) particles to pass through it into the bloodstream. Clearly bacteria in the bloodstream is not a good thing, as it can affect other organs. Food particles in the bloodstream cause the body to launch an attack, and you end up with antibodies against those particular foods. Now you are dealing with food allergies. That's the short version. If you want a longer one go to www.enzymestuff.com She has a very good description of a leaky gut.
