Leaky gut, or increased intestinal permeability, occurs when the lining of the small intestine becomes damaged, allowing undigested food particles, toxic waste products, and bacteria to "leak" through the intestines and flood the bloodstream. It is associated with various chronic diseases. Symptoms can include bloating, gas, cramps, food sensitivities, and aches or pains.
Food allergies or intolerances refer to adverse reactions that occur when the body negatively responds to certain foods. Allergies involve the immune system and can be severe, whereas intolerances generally relate to the digestive system.
- Digestive Issues: Bloating, gas, diarrhea, or abdominal pain after consuming the offending food.
- Skin Reactions: Rashes, hives, or eczema.
- Respiratory Symptoms: Wheezing, shortness of breath, or nasal congestion, which are more common in allergies.
Brain fog is a term used to describe feelings of mental confusion, forgetfulness, and lack of focus and mental clarity. It is not a medical condition itself but a symptom of other conditions.
- Impaired Concentration: Difficulty focusing or paying attention.
- Memory Problems: Forgetfulness or trouble remembering information.
- Mental Fatigue: Feeling tired or exhausted despite adequate rest, making it challenging to think clearly or make decisions.

- Itching: Persistent itching, often leading to a desire to scratch affected areas.
