  • Leaky gut question

    I've heard the term "leaky gut" used alot on this forum and in some of Mark's blogs. It was on the terms that never made sense to me from a physiological/anatomical perspective. Has anyone seen an actual intestine? Or just read about the layers in a book. It's not designed to let stuff out. Anything digested is supposed to be digested into the blood stream via vessels running through the intestinal wall. A true leaky gut would cause peritonitis or some other abdominal infection wouldn't it? Someone please explain to me how this concept works. Thanks!

      Another question, is leaky gut a condition which is only recognized in the "alternative medicine" world or do conventional MDs acknowledge it's existence. Navigating the seas between conventional and alternative can be tricky.
