What Dr. Perillo Can Talk About
Concerning Gut Health:

  • Chronic exposure to food allergens can produce digestive problems such as IBS, leaky gut, and surprisingly, sinus congestion and allergies
  • Food allergens can also have a negative affect on the immune system. Common food allergens include: wheat, corn, soy, and chocolate
  • Gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) is the main part of mucosal-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT), which represents almost 70% of the entire immune system
  • 80% of plasma cells [the majority being immunoglobulin A (IgA) exist in GALT.
  • Alcohol consumption including wine increases gut permeability (leaky gut), which can cause inflammation
  • A small amount of wine causes the stomach to secrete more acid which can create gastritis (inflammation of the stomach)
  • Consuming fermented foods like yogurt and sauerkraut can help keep the gut healthy
  • Probiotics and enzymes improve the microbiome (friendly bacteria that protect against disease-causing bacteria) and therefore the digestive system
