This system is involved in digesting and absorbing nutrients and fluids, eliminating and detoxifying wastes, and is an integral part of the body s immune system the immune-system function of the GI tract is facilitated by large oval lymph tissues lining the gut called Peyer’s Patches and by multiple species of good bacteria that grow in the gut called probiotics.
GI-System Problems & Related Disorders
Problems associated with a compromised GI System include: gastritis, colitis, leaky gut, chron’s disease, irritable bowel (IBS), ulcers, constipation, diverticulosis, diverticulitis, diarrhea and hemorrhoids. Each disorder has its own underlying causative factors, but common to all are usually poor diet/nutrition and inflammation.
POOR DIET AND NUTRITION is a very common cause of GI System problems. A prime culprit is the Western diet, which is heavy in meat, starch, processed foods, preservatives, chemicals and other unhealthy additives. Diets should be altered to include more fiber, enzymes including digestive enzymes, appropriate oils like essential fatty acids and complex carbohydrates, and to exclude or minimize intake of consumables that can compromise health (sugars, preservatives, etc.).
UNDERLYING CAUSES of GI disturbance include microbes (e. g. bacterial, viral, parasites, etc), toxins (e.g. toxins in foods and heavy metal toxicity in the nervous system or the Celiac Ganglion), poor nutrient levels, physical damage to tissues, congestion, overuse, or dysfunction of the accessory organs, or compromised energy flow in the system. Any one or any combination of these leads to irritation, inflammation (which can cause further problems throughout the body), dysfunction or degeneration.
OTHER CONTRIBUTING FACTORS to GI disorders include infections, inadequate or excessive levels of digestive acids (HCI) and enzymes, stress, poor levels of helpful bacteria, and a poorly functioning liver, pancreas or gallbladder all of which aid in the digestive process.
IMMUNE INCOMPETENCE OR DYSFUNCTION along the gastrointestinal tract can leave the GI system and body poorly protected against parasites, toxins and a host of offending antigens from the outside world. Immune incompetence has been shown to be part of the inflammatory diseases known as Chron’s and Colitis.
Treatment for all GI disorders includes removal or correction of the underlying factors, repair of damaged tissues, and eliminating inflammatory reactions while simultaneously providing healing nutrients and healthy bacteria by the tissues involved (probiotics).
Allergies to foods and additives must also be eliminated to reduce irritation and damage to the GI lining. Allergies are very common to dairy, wheat and gluten and can be eliminated with allergy elimination techniques (see AET) combined with avoidance of the involved offenders.
