Nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea...yes, these are all reasons to reach for the bottle of pink. But these are also signs that the integrity of the lining of your gastrointestinal tract is compromised.

In brief, when we are born, the cells of our gut are joined tightly together by what are known as "tight junctions". Years of wear and tear, the use of prescription medications, increased stress loads and the ingestion of pesticide laden foods work to slowly break these tight junctions, allowing food particles to, quite literally, "leak" through the gastrointestinal tract and promote inflammatory cascades in the body.

Symptoms of leaky gut range from various digestive symptoms to systemic symptoms such as: arthritis, chronic migraines and eczema.

Work with Dr. Meera to establish whether or not you suffer from a leaky gut and help to restore your body to a state of balance again.
