Gluten & the "Leaky Gut"
"Leaky gut syndrome" is said to have symptoms that include bloating, gas, cramps, food sensitivities, and aches and pains.

But, it's still something of a medical mystery.

Alison Astill-Smith joins Dr. Abel to share information about her personal experience with gluten, causes of leaky gut, and how the condition can be affected by diet, supplements, exercise, and stress.

After extensive research, she began to explore the relationship between gluten and autoimmunity. By removing all gluten from her diet, she is now completely free of symptoms.
