Digestive Health: Bowel Talk

Believe it or not, but what happens in the bowels is a reflection of the state of our entire body. The large intestine is one of the body's major elimination organs. If it's full of toxins, the rest of your body probably is as well. It's been said that 80% of your immune system is in the gut. If this is true, protecting and maintaining bowel function is a key to good health and longevity.

Intestinal conditions such as constipation, hemorrhoids, irritable bowel, colitis, candida, etc. are so commonplace that many of us aren't taking these disorders seriously. Antibiotics, stress, antacids, sugar, processed foods, pesticides, and chlorine in drinking water are just a few factors that can upset the delicate balance of intestinal flora and disrupt bowel mobility.
