The digestive and eliminative systems of the body are two of the most challenged areas of the body. Many acute and chronic disorders originate there. If we recognize early in life their importance we can be proactive in caring for these areas. Many common disorders such as indigestion and constipation have the propensity to become chronic, turning into more serious diseases. Digestive disorders often occur due to stress and sensitivity to high allergen foods such as wheat and wheat bran, dairy, corn, and eggs. Other causes are an overgrowth of bad bacteria and yeast in the colon and blood stream, heavy smoking and drinking, caffeine, and frequent use of antibiotics.
There are effective natural treatments to promote healthy digestion, increase intestinal health, and eliminate unpleasant symptoms. People with functional bowel disorders often have a predisposed weakness in their gastrointestinal tract. They should stay on a healthy regimen for at least three to six months, if not permanently.
