Restoring Your Digestive Health and Natural Health
Your digestive system is responsible for breaking down the foods you eat and fueling the rest of your body to function at its best. When your digestive system is not working properly, all your other bodily functions will suffer, causing various illnesses and diseases.
The health problems that can arise due to digestive problems range from mild conditions like upset stomach, irritable bowel disorder and dyspepsia (all of which can be very uncomfortable and debilitating) to more serious health problems like diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel syndrome and colon cancer which can even be fatal . Therefore, all these health problems caused by digestive problems make it imperative to have a healthy digestive system.
To better understand how to restore your digestive health, you must first understand how the digestive process works. The digestive process begins in your mouth, where your food mixes with your saliva and is influenced by an enzyme found in your saliva called ptylase. From here, your food enters the esophagus and through it into your stomach.
Once in your stomach, the food is further broken down by stomach acids and then this mixture (known as chyme) enters your intestines. Here the digestive enzymes of the pancreas act on the mixture, metabolizing the essential nutrients (proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, etc.) from the food and converting them into substances that the body can easily absorb. The undigested parts and waste are then eliminated from your body through the bowel movements.
Therefore, for proper digestive function, it is important that:
You chew your food thoroughly
movements to keep your body free of harmful waste.
As you can see, your digestive system is quite a complex system and any disruption in this process can lead to serious health problems. Because of this, you need to restore your digestive health, which can be accomplished by following the 4Rs approach, which includes:
