It is here that some of it gets in through the holes in the intestines caused by leaky gut. If the food you ate is processed junk food with chemicals, toxins and bacteria in it, all of this gets into the blood. The intestinal lining is really meant to be a barrier to prevent these things from getting in but for people with Auto-immune gene and Psoriasis, they are susceptible to having leaky gut. The origin of leaky gut is unknown, because there is no cure for Psoriasis. But, knowing this connection between Psoriasis and Diet we can identify a few things can be done to help leaky gut.
