Digestive system. All about digestive diseases. Best tips on how to fix your digestion problems.
The function of our digestion is extremely important.
It’s crucial to pay attention to our system. Because sooner or later it will treat you the same way you treat it.
Digestive organs involved in our body are very complex. The colon itself is responsible for many functions. Digestive system functions are directly responsible for our good health. That's if we are being good to ourselves.
The digestive system starts from the mouth, it continues with the esophagus, stomach, pancreas, liver, goal bladder, colon and rectum. All these organs can be affected in Crohns disease. But other digestion problems may be more local to just one organ.
The malfunction of our beautifully designed body usually starts because we do something inappropriate to it. Poor diet, stress and chemicals in our environment can all be the cause for this malfunction. And that's how the digestive system diseases start.
My acupuncturist once told me that in Eastern medicine people love with their liver not with their heart. This means that the liver is so important in the digestive process that it becomes the main organ. So we should take care of it. Very sensitive people have more digestive problems for a reason. The liver reacts instantly to stress causing the goal bladder to alter the production of bile. And that starts the vicious cycle of abdominal disorders.
Digestive system is like a fine instrument. If you mistreat your body it will remind you of it in the most inappropriate time. So learn to respect and nourish your inside!
This system is the heart of our health. This is where you get all the nutrition for every cell in your body. The immune system depends on it as well.
When the digestive system is inflamed like in Crohns disease or it’s constipated or irritated, it simply can not do it’s job and will cause health problems. But the good news is, we can actually do something natural to repair and retain good digestive health care.
Most people have experienced some digestive system disorders including acute diarrhea, constipation and flatulence. Unfortunately, not too many doctors ask us about whether we have normal bowel movements. That is very important to maintain good digestive system health. Did you know that activated charcoal may be used for intestinal gas and other health problems?
By the way, rest is one of the most important things you can give back to your body. Remember, 10pm to 4am is the best time for sleep so the liver can cleanse our system. The liver needs rest during this time for best natural detoxification.
Even if you do everything else right, but deprive yourself of sleep once in a while your body may remind you with
indigestion, heartburn, GERD and even gastritis. And for patients with Crohns disease one of the first warning signs would be
Start listening to your body and pay close attention to it. If the liver doesn’t tolerate certain foods try to avoid them. You will know when you get abdominal cramps(primarily on the right side), nausea, indigestion, etc.
If you slip up and drnink a can of soda, it’s not just one innocent drink. It’s 10 teaspoonfuls of sugar in your body which turns into a vicious cycle of your body craving even more sugar. High sugar intake has been associated with
possible causes of Crohns disease. For many Crohns patients inability to digest the foods appropriately can cause flatulence especially after sugar intake.

Ideally, the human body should be able to fight off some viruses and infections without the use of antibiotics and a healthy liver should be able to filter out most toxins and chemicals from your body.
With Crohns patients, it becomes complicated because our immune system is over-active and it needs help to stay in balance. We always have to be on guard. Our digestive system is not going to be very forgiving! If you want to stay symptom-free, you will need to be very strict with yourself. No cheating with your diet! Get enough rest!
Every human system is unique and I wish that was recognized more by doctors. I try to minimize my pharmacological treatments and maximize natural, herbal and homeopathic therapies. I realized that one person may do very well with one product while someone else may not tolerate it at all. I tried one new product extracted from hops. It had many great supportive studies. It was really promising on paper as natural cancer prevention and much more. Many people loved this product and improved their sleep and health using it. But I just got horrible migraines while taking it. Nevertheless, I will not rest until I find more great natural products. In my journey I found more natural solutions that worked for abdominal pain, gas pain,
Digestive system disorders like indigestion, GERD, heartburn and gastritis are mostly final steps in your journey with unhealthy habits. What you want to do with it is up to you.
You can choose to start doing light exercise, detox your body, change your diet, change sleeping patterns, etc. OR you can choose to take medications that relieve symptoms.
I made my choices and I am thrilled with the results. And the key is to keep on searching and looking for even better ways of healthy lifestyle.
I am a lucky Crohns patient, in a sense, that I am able to better understand medicine because I am a pharmacist. Even though I am a pharmacist, I try to lean towards more natural healing to repair the digestive system because a lot of times the natural solution is the way to minimize side effects.
I still think that traditional medicine is indispensable in many ways but it really should be incorporated with alternative therapies.
Be grateful if your symptoms are under control and stick to healthy habits and a healthy diet. Because, for Crohns patients, if you slip up just a little, you will pay a lot later. Let’s treat our digestive system with respect!
