The importance of a healthy digestive tract
Why is the digestive system important? That is a question you have probably never asked yourself. In fact, unless you are experiencing difficulty, you probably never even think about it. You eat, your body digests it, and you go about your day. However, if you are having problems or suffer from a debilitating gastrointestinal disorder like even minor issues, such as constipation, can feel as if your guts are being ripped out. Additionally, you may have problems that you do not even realize stem from the digestive process.
How can I help?
Every time you eat or drink something, your digestive system gets busy and begins pushing the food you ate through your GI tract to break it down into nutrients. These include amino acids which make up a large part of our cells, muscle, and tissues, minerals and vitamins which are also absorbed from your food during the digestive process. All macronutrients, vitamins, and minerals are absorbed through the small intestine and then into your bloodstream. Just like your car needs good oil to run, your body needs good food to function. If you are eating poorly, your body will not get enough vitamins, nutrients and minerals. When your body does not get enough of these vital macronutrients then all kinds of bad things can start to happen. For instance, a vitamin B6 deficiency can lead to terrible problems within your nervous system. A lack of vitamin C in your diet can cause leaky gut, and painful joints, to just name a few. Vitamin E deficiencies can cause muscle and nerve damage. If your digestive system is not absorbing enough vitamin D, you can suffer a loss of bone density. You get the picture, good food and what you eat is important plus a great functioning digestive tract. So let me help you repair any digestive damage and get your health and body back on track to wellness, health and vitality so you can feel great again.
