Studies in gastroenterology have shown that lack of a proper food regime shows unconcern for our own health. Consequently, taking also in consideration the continuous action of the many harmful factors upon the body, our entire digestive system may become a source of hidden diseases with continuously active focuses. A digestive apparatus that does not work normally will not be able to turn food into energy and it will not be able to send the minerals, the vitamins and the other nutritive substances to all the systems of the body.
Failing to treat them in time, apparently common affections will aggravate and there will be symptoms such as: stomach aches, spasms, diarrhea, aerocolia, borborygmus, involving the entire duoden and the colon. Correction of the apparatus, namely treatment of the disease in its initial stage, is very important. In this way one may avoid being subject to an aggressive therapy, harmful to the body, in the future.
At a later stage, if the human being hasn’t taken care of his digestive apparatus, the affection will surely aggravate; it may also turn into cancer, which could possibly affect the entire body.
Despite this grim prediction, if the human being pays more attention to the digestive apparatus, anything can be remedied.
Gastric acidity is the body’s incapacity to digest food proportionally, a condition caused by a deficiency of gastric acid secretion. Bloating, gas and sometimes diarrhea are signs of a disorder in the digestive apparatus. The low level of gastric acid prevents the normal development of the digestive process and therefore B12 vitamin cannot be properly absorbed from food. This may lead to severe anemia manifested by: an altered general condition, fatigue, difficulties of thinking and concentration and even fainting fits.
The gastric discomfort, caused by gastric acidity, is experienced more painfully when the patient has consumed a large amount of high-fat foods. The digestive apparatus can hardly process the intake of food, especially if it was swallowed very fast. Large bites that aren’t chewed properly may not be well processed by the digestive apparatus, because there is not enough acid.
Lack of gastric acid is the consequence of ageing, stress and allergy to certain foods. Very many people use mints or mouth-sprays and chewing-gum, as well, to mask the unpleasant smell of their mouth. Whatever the products used, the smell will not disappear because it is caused by the toxins and the bacteria deposited in the digestive apparatus. In case of frequent or temporary constipation, the respective bacteria start migrating from the stomach towards the mouth. If a person doesn’t have at least two stools a day, he or she shows signs of constipation.
A large part of the Earth’s population think that use of laxatives is the efficient method of dealing with the annoyance of constipation. The real problem is that the human being does not make physical effort, does not take enough exercise and does not receive the necessary amount of water or fibers from the food.
Other causes for constipation are the following: bad choice of foods and excess of bad foods, night eating, water consumption during meals as well as a diet rich in proteins.
These habits will upset the digestive apparatus and a thick layer of residues will build upon the colon wall. The laxative-based medication does nothing else but create addiction and destroy the body’s self-protective system. Laxatives may cause inflammations and bleeding of the digestive tube.
Stress is an important factor in the disorders of the digestive apparatus. It may cause dysfunctions in the muscles of the colon. A lot of people refuse to go to the toilet outside their house, but, doing it, they actually refuse to pay attention to the needs of their body.
Prolonged constipation leads to very serious complications. Gastroenterologists know that half of the body’s affections are born in the colon. A slow digestive apparatus will poison the blood by bacteria that travel to liver, kidney, lung and skin later. This may lead to any disease of the human body.
Diarrhea is the result of a food poisoning or it is a symptom of any other serious disease. In the watery diarrheic residues may be found puss, blood and fats. Untreated diarrhea leads to dehydration and loss of microelements.
Various types of enterocolitis are born in a colon that, having developed diverticula itself, collects food residues, bacteria and viruses. A lot of people have these diverticula without being aware of them, but the accumulated residues grow inflamed and become infections.
This class of disorders is called enterocolitis. Enterocolitis is accompanied by diarrhea and aerocolia and it’s very painful. When choosing foods, a patient should avoid the products with seeds, such as strawberries, raspberries etc., because the seeds go into the diverticula of the colon. After the infection has been treated, these products may be consumed again.
Aerocolia occurs as a result of carbohydrates fermentation in the small intestine. t shows a disorder of the intestinal flora, caused by an improper alimentation, poor in probiotic products.
Gas may be the result of a slow digestive process. Proper chewing of the food in the buccal cavity helps maintaining properly the liver, the pancreas and the gall bladder. In this way, the enzymatic activity of the stomach is also balanced, a thing which helps eliminating the cause of aerocolia.
Food allergy is betrayed by instant symptoms. This allergy is caused by the frequent consumption of the same type of food or by candida, parasites or medication that disturb the balance of the body. These factors upset the digestive apparatus and cause the formation of orifices in the mucous tissue of the small intestine, a disorder known as the perforated bowel syndrome. If there are bits of food in the intestine, they may even enter the blood stream. The human immune system will make antibodies to fight these bigger residues, but there are a great number of disorders that will occur in the body, including asthma, arthritis, headaches and chronic fatigue.
Food allergy is betrayed by various symptoms such as fatigue, edemas, skin diseases, depression and headaches. The foods or products that cause instability of the digestive system can be identified by the immunoglobulin test E (Ig E).
Gastric reflux occurs when the cardia sphincter retains the gastric acid and the latter one goes up the esophagus causing burns. Gastric reflux may give birth to hiatal hernia.
