One Cause-- Many Ailments: The Leaky Gut Syndrome: What It Is and How It May Be Affecting Your Health

Overview

What is it that arthritis, chronic fatigue, migraine headaches, celiac disease, psoriasis, diabetes, lupus, as well as many other diseases, have in common? At first glance they appear to be totally unrelated, yet they may very well be linked by a common denominator: the Leaky Gut Syndrome (LGS), or intestinal permeability.

Overview

What is it that arthritis, chronic fatigue, migraine headaches, celiac disease, psoriasis, diabetes, lupus, as well as many other diseases, have in common? At first glance they appear to be totally unrelated, yet they may very well be linked by a common denominator: the Leaky Gut Syndrome (LGS), or intestinal permeability. For a condition with such far-reaching effects, LGS has gone remarkably undiagnosed.

For years, Dr. Pagano has been treating patients with psoriasis and eczema by using the concept of the "leaky gut" as it was presented in the diagnostic readings of Edgar Cayce (Cayce, who died in 1945, is known as the "father of American holistic medicine.") Dr. Pagano's findings were published in the bestselling book, Healing Psorasis. Today, he takes his work even further and offers us the hope of healing this condition based on experience, as evidenced by his vivid illustrations and before-and-after photographs.

The good news, Pagano states, is that this condition can be alleviated and in many cases completely healed. Once the underlying cause of a problem is recognized, one can proceed to correct the situation in an intelligent and reasonable manner. Dr. Pagano has done just that!
