Struggling with Leaky Gut Syndrome?
Leaky Gut Support Recipe
How To Take an Enema Series
Leaky gut syndrome, also known as increased intestinal permeability or intestinal hyperpermeability, is a phenomenon that occurs when microscopic pores (called tight junctions) in the wall of the small intestine widen enough to allow harmful substances such as microorganisms, toxins, and foreign antigens to enter the bloodstream. Because such items are not meant to leave the digestive tract and enter the blood, they may cause a significant immune and inflammatory response, which can lead to debilitating allergies and other health complications.
Most mainstream medical professionals do not recognize leaky gut syndrome as a disorder unto itself, but rather as a possible symptom of other disorders, because to date clinical data are correlative only, making it difficult to separate cause from effect in interpreting the importance of barrier loss. However, significant scientific evidence does suggest that increased intestinal permeability may play a role in chronic autoimmune disorders such as celiac disease and Crohn's disease, and therefore I recommend that intestinal permeability be given thoughtful attention when striving to optimize your health. It's an area of medicine that I certainly feel deserves deeper mainstream study.
Many of my clients have found relief from suspected leaky gut syndrome (increased intestinal permeability) and potentially associated health challenges by optimizing their gut health through 1) home colon cleansing and 2) a targeted supplement regimen such as the suggested regimen outlined below.

Leaky Gut Support Recipe
I recommend the following recipe to support intestinal permeability health. One scoop each of the following therapeutic formulas, mixed together with water, is ideally taken either as a breakfast or at bedtime, especially on the days you take your enema series.
- One scoop of Ortho Biotic Powder - This probiotic formula can help heal leaky gut by strengthening the gut lining and replenishing your natural stores of good bacteria to reduce inflammation.
- One scoop of Ortho IgG Protect Powder - This pure and concentrated immune support formula strengthens the gut-immune barrier and stimulates the body's normal gut repair mechanisms.
Or, instead of IgG Protect Powder, you can substitute Ortho SBI Protect Powder, a dairy-free option which Kristina has recommended frequently to her clients.
- One scoop of Ortho GlutaShield - The ingredients in GlutaShield help regenerate and maintain GI enterocytes while supporting the health of the intestinal mucosal barrier.
One scoop of Ortho CollaGEN Powder - A superior collagen product, Ortho CollaGEN is formulated to nutritionally support cartilage, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and skin.
When the regimen outlined above is followed in conjunction with a home colon cleansing program, many of my clients see improved bowel regularity, increased energy, improved immunity, and less gas and bloating. This protocol stimulates the body's normal gut repair mechanisms and supports maintenance of a healthy microbial balance.
