How the Digestive System Works
The digestive system is an amazing creation. Its ultimate goal is to extract nutrients from food and absorb them into the bloodstream, so that the body may have the energy needed to carry on with all daily activities.
Digestion all starts with the moment food is consumed. Saliva mixes with the chewed food to break it down and make it able to slide down the esophagus. The food then enters the stomach, where it mixes with hydrochloric acid and is further broken down as the muscles of the stomach contract.
After this process, the food enters the small intestine, where vitamins and minerals are extracted and then sent into the bloodstream. The remaining product is sent to the large intestine, where it is soon turned into waste.
It is extremely important to have a healthy digestive system! Any problems that occur within the stomach, intestines, liver, gallbladder and pancreas can make life very difficult. One of the most important factors is to ensure that you have good gut flora, the bacteria that keeps everything in harmony.
However, there are a number of villains that can cause a person to feel discomfort – many of which you may be fighting right now.
The Causes of Digestive Problems
There are a number of factors that can cause digestive problems. Any one of these may be the culprit in your particular situation:
- Existing diseases unrelated to the digestive system
Of course, one of the most significant factors out of all of those listed is diet. It is extremely important to be aware of the foods that you consume. Much of what people consider to be food is not food at all. Like the saying goes, you are what you eat…so make good, healthy choices.
Be sure to consume lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. While it is okay to purchase these items in cans, it is best to buy them in the produce sections of your grocery store or buy them in the frozen section if necessary. Stock up on these items and keep them in your freezer for regular use with meals. Fruits and vegetables are loaded with vitamins and minerals that help the body function properly and fight disease. If you ignore your veggies, you will pay for it in the gut.
Additionally, try to keep your emotions in check. How many times have you suffered with an upset stomach or heartburn because of a stressful situation that you handled poorly? Don’t let the worries of life ruin your digestive system. If you struggle with staying calm under pressure, seek professional help before you end up with an ulcer or any other health problem.
Symptoms of Digestive Disorders
It is usually quite obvious when one has a problem with their digestive system. It is not like the symptoms are shy or silent. In fact, they usually make themselves known loud and clear as if to say, “Hey! What did you do to us?!”
If you have a digestive problem, more than likely you know it. You may be dealing with one or more of the following symptoms:
- Stomach cramps
- Constipation or diarrhea
Sometimes the symptoms can be quite severe and send an alarm that serious medical attention is needed. For instance, if the pain in the abdominal region becomes unbearable or if blood exists in the stool, it is imperative that medical attention is sought out.
It is extremely important not to overlook any symptoms of the digestive tract, but to tackle them head-on. There may be a more serious ailment under the surface that you are not aware of that needs emergency care.
The Progession of Digestive Problems
If you have been experiencing symptoms of an underlying digestive problem, the possibilities are nearly endless. This is why it is necessary to seek medical help and never play guessing games with your health.
Furthermore, it is imperative that you do not ignore digestive problems and just hope that it will go away on its own. Inaction on your part may allow for more serious issues to develop.
If you have any digestive symptoms, you may be dealing with any one of the following digestive diseases:
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Peptic Ulcers
- Celiac Disease
