How often do you feel bloated or tired at the end of a meal? Perhaps you suffer from disturbed sleep or your stomach is constantly grumbling or groaning. You may have aggravating aches and pains. Lethargy, chronic fatigue and digestive disorders arrive when we strain our digestive systems and the modern diet which mixes many varieties of foods can contribute to this strain.
Your digestive tract is well over twenty feet long. If you were to flatten out just your small intestine, its total absorptive area would be half the size of a basketball court.
This is an important bit of real estate.
Naturopaths tend to annoy medical specialists by looking at gastrointestinal (GI) problems such as colitis, ulcers, spastic colon, irritable bowel syndrome and even Crohn's disease as manifestations of the same two problems, just in different places.
