The Great Leaky Gut – Dysbiosis Debate
I’ve been around my fair share of leaky gut. I think it should go without saying that if
you have any sort of gut dysfunction then you have dysbiosis. That is the part that
everyone seems to agree upon. Where the disagreement arises is in how to properly
If you don’t already know, let me explain exactly what dysbiosis is. Your digestive
tract is host to billions and billions of bacteria, yeast, fungus, etc; both good and bad.
For a healthy gut, it is all about balance. A healthy gut contains a balance of both
good and bad bacteria, of bacteria to yeast, and so forth. When that balance exists,
then each does its part to keep the others in check.
This healthy balance is somewhere on the order of 80% beneficial bacteria to 20%
harmful bacteria. And typically there are the majority of bacteria to the minority of
yeast and fungus.
But for many reasons, this balance can be thrown off. In our society, I can say with
certainty that the two most common reasons are because of the Standard American
Diet (SAD) full of processed food and sugar and the overuse of antibiotics.
You see, the beneficial bacteria feed on many of the whole food fiber sources in your
diet like inulin (plant or vegetable fiber). The harmful bacteria however feed on
So with poor dietary choices, which is most often the case, consisting of few
vegetables and an abundance of sugar it is easy to see how the harmful bacteria

80% and the beneficial bacteria a mere 20%. This is one way dysbiosis develops
and can easily lead to Leaky Gut Syndrome.
I think you would agree that antibiotics are very effective at killing bacteria that cause
infection. But they are also just as
