The digestive system is an intricate and extensive part of the body. It ranges all the way from the mouth to the rectum. The digestive system is responsible for removing waste and helps your body absorb essential nutrients.
Digestive problems can mean more than unwanted, embarrassing symptoms. Minor problems that are left untreated can lead to more serious, chronic illnesses. Because there are so many different types of digestion problems, you may mistakenly dismiss them.
Our gut is thought of as our second brain and researchers are linking mental health to gut issues.
What goes on in our gut also has an effect on the skin i.e. acne and Rosacea issues.
It’s important to understand common digestive problems that could be caused by;
- Bacteria in food
- Certain medications
- Chronic medical conditions such as colitis, Crohn’s disease and IBS
