Improving Digestion Greatly Improves Health
Your digestive tract & liver do a lot more than just process food. These two major players contribute to immune health, how the body processes food for fuel and hormone balance. Addressing microbial balance (for example, good versus bad bacteria), achieving a healthy inner environment and the interplay with the liver is essential.
What about Waste Removal & Toxins?
The body produces waste products as part of daily work and bi-products from microbes that live inside our digestive tract. In a healthy digestive system, the intestinal lining filters substances and ideally impedes passage of unwanted ingredients (toxins or contaminants) into the body. These waste products are neutralized by the liver and removed through the bowel.
Harmful substances from our environment may enter our body and overcome the filtering system. Environmental toxins are contaminants that come from outside of the body, generally chemicals and heavy metals. The inability of the body to remove contaminants reduces normal function, impairs energy systems, metabolism, creates barriers to losing weight and promotes disease.
Attaining Digestive Wellness
More than 60 million Americans experience heartburn which is a symptom that suggests digestion is impaired. The quick fix of taking antacids which may not even be the root cause of discomfort is short lived.The true unresolved issue(s) may continue to worsen. To make matters worse, antacids raise the pH of the stomach which lessens the body’s ability to break down protein or take in minerals. In addition, side effects of antacid include bone loss which may lead to osteoporosis.
Poor digestion also leads to annoying symptoms such as gas, bloating, abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Colitis, Crohn’s Disease are resulting consequences. Food Intolerance or sensitivities surface. An inflammatory environment results from these imbalances. Long term, the lining of your digestive tract changes. Toxins and large molecules may more easily cross over the intestinal barrier and enter the general circulation. Autoimmune responses may occur. The liver becomes overworked as does the body’s ability to defend itself and remove contaminants.
Addressing symptoms and conditions without resolving the cause skims the surface and leads to future health consequences. Treating medication side effects with other medications further adds to the conundrum.
