Digestive disorders of all kinds are on the rise exponentially. This is a disturbing trend considering the overwhelming evidence that most disease begins in the digestive system. Your gut wall not only houses 70-80% of your immune-building cells, but also contains essential gut flora necessary to maintain overall health. These flora, also known as the microbiome, consist of around 100 trillion cells and 10,000 organisms comprised of bacteria, viruses, fungi and various other microorganisms designed not only to keep our health in check, but also to promote wellness.
The digestive tract is basically a long tube that extends from the mouth to the anus, including the esophagus, stomach and small and large intestines. Each of these organs play a pivotal role in the absorption of nutrients, digestion of food, and elimination of waste. Any disturbance in this system, such as a lack of proper acid in the stomach (pH 4) or an imbalance of bacteria in the gut microbiome, can lead to a host of diseases and conditions, both mental and physical.
COMMON DIGESTIVE CONDITIONS
There are many digestive disorders, but some of the most common conditions include acid reflux (heartburn), ulcers, irritable bowel, constipation, diarrhea, gallstones, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Crohn’s Disease, Celiac Disease, and Colitis.
Digestive problems typically arise from either immune issues, infection, improper diet, stress, as well as chemical, biotoxic or heavy metal toxicity, and are often inter-related. Toxicity is a major source of inflammation in the bowel. Biotoxins come in various forms and are produced in most all living organisms. For instance, plants produce phytotoxins, fungi product mycotoxins and animals produce zootoxins. Proper testing is very important to assess treatment protocols.
Just as with anything, supplements or drugs will not remove the cause of digestive conditions or help you truly achieve a cure. The body has an amazing ability to cure itself when we remove actual causes of disease. We merely remove the interference, and let our bodies do the work.
