Digestive problems are wide spread. According to Elizabeth Lipski, C.C.N., except for the common cold, digestive problems are the most common reason people seek medical advice.
Poor digestion leads to build up of toxins, which can cause:
- low energy levels,
- abdominal pain,
- allergic symptoms,
- a bloated feeling,
- a burning sensation after eating,
- chronic bowel irritation,
- chronic fatigue,
- joint and muscle pain,
- rumbling noises,
- body odour,
- white coating on the tongue,
- skin disorders,
- sugar cravings,
Poor digestion can do more than give you a stomach ache or gas because digestion is the mechanism that makes your body work…a clog in the works may be only the tip of the iceberg, because poor digestion interferes with nutrient breakdown, absorption and metabolism; allows toxins to remain in the body and accumulate; and over-stresses the body.
Dr. Anthony Cichoke says.
It has been said, that poor digestion is synonym with poor nutrition. You might be getting the proper nutrients into your body, but your system isn’t able to absorb it. There are many contributing factors to a poor digestive system, but it has been found that processed foods can be one of the biggest factors.
It is difficult to lose weight if you have poor digestion. Improper digestion is usually the cause of most weight problems. Further even if you are careful about how much you’re eating, but eating more salty, sour or sweet tasting foods, you will gain weight.
Poor digestion takes a lot out of your body, and makes it weak, leaving it more vulnerable to attacks from other sources. The best course you can take to correct your digestion would be to consult your doctor because you must treat the cause of the poor digestion and not the symptoms.
