How well is your digestive system working?

Nearly 80 percent of the American population complain of some type of digestive disorder. The reported symptoms are bloating, gas, indigestion, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Many people are too embarrassed to talk to their doctor about it, so these symptoms often go untreated for years.

According to Ayurveda, all aspects of health and ill health start in the digestive system. Early detection and not sweeping digestive symptoms under the rug is critical not only to a complete recovery, but to long-term health.

If you are experiencing chronic digestive concerns of any kind, please get checked by your doctor.

Most people today jump immediately towards removing particular “problem” foods. This may temporarily help your digestive symptom, but will not treat the underlying weak link in your digestive power. More often than not, doing this results in one food after the next having to be eliminated.

Since you clicked on this blog post and are still reading, you may be interested to know that there are strategies to identify and address the underlying concern, and ultimately attain the digestive strength that you deserve.

In Ayurveda, it is said that 80% of all disease can be attributed to digestive imbalance. Our culture of blaming foods for our digestive distress may be setting us up for more serious problems down the road.

An accurate understanding of digestion requires an evaluation of each aspect of the digestive process. Poor lymphatic circulation, liver function, bile flow, stomach acid strength, stress and a diet of highly processed foods can directly impact digestive strength. Ayurveda says that the digestive system is also our detoxification system. This means when the digestion breaks down, so does the ability to detox.

With the general public being bombarded by more than 4 billion pounds of toxins dumped into the American environment each year, a healthy digestive and detox system is more important than ever before.                                                                                  Dr. John Douillard, LifeSpa
