Digestive Health

Is your digestive system making you sick and fat?

 

There might be something wrong with your inner tube and it could be making you sick and fat. You may not even realize you have a problem, but if you have health concerns of any kind or if you are overweight, your inner tube could be the root cause. Of course, I’m not talking about a beach toy. I mean the inner tube of life, your digestive system.

It is likely that you suffer from, or have suffered from, some type of digestive disorder – irritable bowel syndrome, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, reflux, gas and other things to gross to mention. And you are not alone.

More than 100 million Americans have digestive problems.

Two of the top five selling drugs in America are for digestive problems and they cost us billions and billions of dollars. There are more than 200 over-the-counter (OTC) remedies for digestive disorders, and many can create additional digestive problems.

Visits for intestinal disorders are among the most common reasons for trips to primary care physicians. Also, digestive problems wreak havoc in the entire body, leading to allergies, arthritis, rashes, acne, chronic fatigue, mood disorders, dementia, cancer and more.
Having a healthy gut means more than simply being free of annoyances like bloating or heartburn. It is absolutely central to your health. It is connected to everything that happens in your body.

How your gut keeps you healthy or makes you ill

The health of your gut determines what nutrients are absorbed and what toxins and allergens are kept out. There is 500 species and 3 pounds of bacteria in your gut which form a huge chemical factory that helps you digest your food, regulate hormones, excrete toxins and produce vitamins and other healing compounds that keep your gut and your body healthy.

Remember, your gut must break down all the food you eat into its individual components, separate out the vitamins and minerals, and shuttle everything across the one-cell-thick layer into your bloodstream and nourish your body and brain.

Your gut has quite a lot to manage. Even in a perfect world, it is hard to keep all of this in balance. In our modern world there are endless insults that can knock our digestive system off balance, making it much more difficult to maintain excellent digestive health.
