Do you struggle with brain fog, joint pain, chronic fatigue, skin issues, or food sensitivities? If you do, you may have a “leaky” gut. “Leaky gut” is the colloquial term for “increased intestinal permeability,” a physiological phenomenon in which gaps develop between the cells that line the small intestine. These gaps allow substances to escape from the gut into the bloodstream, triggering an inflammatory response by the immune system that can adversely affect nearly every organ of the body. In my clinical practice, I often find leaky gut to be a significant problem in my clients with Lyme disease and mold illness. Repairing leaky gut is essential for restoring whole-body health, including promoting Lyme disease and mold illness recovery. Read on to learn about seven foods and nutrients you should include in your diet to support leaky gut repair.

Chronic infections, such as Lyme disease, can disrupt our neurochemistry, the biochemical activity occurring in our nervous system that regulates our cognition, mood, and mental health.

These are, unfortunately, common symptoms amongst those with Lyme disease. Read on to learn about the nutritional factors that can help balance your neurochemistry, supporting your mental and emotional wellbeing as you recover from Lyme disease.

This brief article shares a few of my thoughts on how leaning into discomfort can help us heal from chronic illness, coming out on “the other side” stronger, healthier, and happier than before.
