Human Digestive System

The human digestive system and how it works is important to understand, especially if you are experiencing one of the many digestive diseases that are prevalent in our modern society.

Digestive health is foundational to overall wellness. If you've ever suffered from recurring heartburn, constipation, ulcers, irritable bowel, diarrhea, or other digestive disorders, you know exactly what I'm talking about.

It seems that the common "remedy" these days for most digestion problems is a "quick fix" in the form of an over the counter medication or a prescription drug.

Of course, these solutions provide only temporary relief and do nothing to deal with the actual cause of your digestive problem.

That is why you end up as a chronic sufferer.

Instead, you should be thinking of cleansing your body of toxins and building up your immune system so that your digestive system is working at its best.

What Is The Digestive System?

The digestive system is that part of your body that processes the food and drink that you feed it.

Digestion starts in your mouth and the processes progresses through to the rectum. On the way it includes the esophagus, stomach, gall bladder, pancreas, liver, and intestines.

There are three main processes that your digestion system is made to accomplish.

  1. Absorption - this is when the food is transferred from the intestines into the blood stream.
  2. Assimilation - this part of the process is when the nutrients actually enter your cells.
  3. Elimination - this is the removal of the waste that is left when the first two processes are completed.

If any of these three digestive processes are not working properly, you've got trouble.

If your intestines are clogged with mucus or built up fecal matter, you aren't going to be able to absorb the nutrition into your blood stream.

If your blood doesn't have enough nutrients to pass on to the cells, your body begins to suffer from malnutrition. The immune system is affected and eventually any other part of the body can suffer from this lack of adequate nutrition.

Finally, if you aren't processing your food correctly, you are bound to have difficulty in the area of "elimination." Do you have any idea how many people suffer from regular constipation or diarrhea? I certainly don't have a number to throw at you, but based on the percentage of people I know alone, the statistics must be staggering.

These facts should tell you that just because you eat food, doesn't mean you are digesting it properly. We are one of the most prosperous peoples that have lived to date, yet we suffer with more disease than ever before. We need to ask ourselves the question, "Why?"

Do yourself a favor and take care of your digestive tract. Consider giving yourself an annual colon cleanse using Herbal Fiberblend. The all natural psyllium fiber and herbs cleanse the human digestive system and will help you absorb more goodness from the healthy foods you do eat.

If you need help getting enough good foods into your diet, supplement your diet with whole food supplement powders like I do. My hubby refuses to eat vegetables, so this is a life saver for us.

Problems Resulting From Poor Digestion

As I stated up front, the human digestive system, when not functioning properly, can really cause you pain and suffering. Here are a number of disorders that, unfortunately, have become fairly common in far too many people.

Are you surprised that all of these diseases can be attributed to trouble in the human digestive system? It's certainly true. Take a look at these digestive system diagrams if you like.

Now, I'm not going to begin to tell you that there is a simple "cure" to any and all of these health issues. If your case is severe, you would be wise to consult with a physician.

However, I can tell you that there are natural steps you can take to improve your digestive health. When your digestion system is working properly, you may very well find that a great deal of your symptoms will be eased or eliminated.

To me, it is certainly worth taking the trouble, if trouble it is. If you can reduce your suffering and possibly avoid major surgery, wouldn't you do all you can to help yourself? I hope so.

I believe it makes sense to try natural remedies that include diet, lifestyle changes, herbs, vitamins, and nutrients before resorting to pharmaceutical drugs or surgery.

My family and I use Herbal Fiberblend regularly to cleanse the digestive tract and to keep the entire human digestive system working properly. It's all natural and works wonderfully well.

It is my hope that you will find some of the information on this site regarding the human digestive system to be of great help to you in your pursuit of a healthier, happier, and pain free life.
