Let’s face it – we have all had “bad” digestion at one time or another. Usually we have a pretty good idea of what might have caused the issue, like too much spicy food the night before.
While natural medicine can definitely help provide relief for these temporary moments of digestive discomfort, natural medicine also excels at helping those who struggle on a more constant basis with digestive issues.
You’ve probably heard the saying “You are what you eat” –
But in reality it would be more accurate to say “You are what you digest!” Even when the most ideal foods are eaten, if the body is not able to properly digest the foods and turn them into usable nutrients, the body will not be optimally healthy.
Common Digestive Problems:
- Frequent, smelly gas
- Loose Stools/ Diarrhea
- Stomach or abdominal pain
What causes someone to have chronic digestive problems?
There are many possible causes for digestive problems. Without finding the cause, treatments may actually cause more harm than good. For example, acid blocking medications actually reduce the body’s ability to digest and absorb specific nutrients. Overuse of laxatives can cause the body to become dependent on them.
Common causes of digestive problems:
- Food allergies, sensitivities and intolerances
- Food “Habits” and routines – like skipping meals
