What is Leaky Gut Syndrome?Leaky gut syndrome in conjunction with autism is still being researched; a number of studies and research are under way to better understand how the syndrome starts, why it can be prevalent in autistic children, and how to treat it.

Simply, leaky guy syndrome is the inability of the intestinal wall to keep out large, unwanted molecules. This symptom of autism most often signifies that the intestinal wall has been altered to become permeable. Leaky gut syndrome in autistic children may occur because of increased sensitivity or allergies.

Leaky gut syndrome is problematic for one’s health because it allows molecules and substances (such as proteins) that are normally filtered out of the intestinal tract into the intestines. Because these molecules are not usually allowed inside the gut, the body misinterprets these non-harmful substances as a virus or infection and begins to produce antibodies to attack them.

In turn, this creates a process where one’s body recognizes certain foods, as well as any of the body’s regular molecules that are similar to these foods, as harmful, causing an auto-immune disease where the body attacks itself. These are merely two possible outcomes with leaky gut syndrome.

Manic Depression: What are the Symptoms?Manic depression can be defined as an extended stage of mood swings. One may experience these mood swings from really high to very low degree. The high degree is known as manic and the lower as depressed.

Bipolar disorder is yet another name for manic depressive illness. This stage usually refers to as an individual’s mood that shifts between different ‘poles’ of mania and depression.

Manic Depression is not something to be taken lightly. It is a serious disorder and needs serious professional and personal care.

Manic depression can affect both men and women. There is no specific age at which this disease usually starts. However, experts believe that the onset of this disease takes place in late adolescence.

This disorder can be found among people irrespective of their age, race, social classes and ethnic groups. Medical experts feel that this disease has a genetic link and even tends to run in the families.

The disease does not only affect the patient but also the person who attends to him or her.

What Causes Acid Reflux?We all can experience a little bit of acid reflux if we eat a big meal and then immediately bend over, or lie down flat on our back afterward and then all of a sudden feel that acid coming back up our throat; especially if we just finished a large meal that contained foods high in fat, had lots of acid in them or were very spicy. There are several causes for acid reflux.

Individuals may experience acid reflux because they have a malfunction of the lower esophageal sphincter muscles which are the ones responsible for closing and opening at the lower end of the esophagus and preventing food from the stomach from coming back up the esophagus.

If these muscles weaken, the lower esophageal sphincter muscles cannot close properly and food that should be emptying into the stomach can come back up.

Acid from the stomach may also come up with the food that has started to be mixed in the stomach causing the sensation of burning as it comes back up into the esophagus.
