Orlando, Florida: It is estimated that 20 million people in the United States deal with persistent digestive disorders. “THIS is the true, on-going epidemic. Normalizing digestive disorders to minimize symptoms CAN be achieved naturally.” says Dr. Bruce Vinikas, DOM. AP, the co-founder of the National Candida Center, a leading wellness center in Central Florida.
The digestive system is crucial to our health. It helps us eat, digest, and distribute nutrients for energy, growth, and cell repair. It efficiently collects and eliminates waste, balancing all other functions.
Sometimes we have to make major adjustments to our daily routine and diet because of symptoms brought on by an imbalance or conditions, like stress, affecting our digestive system that alters its normal function. Your understanding of the digestive system and small lifestyle and dietary changes can help you better manage your gut health.
What does "digestive system" refer to?
The digestive system consists of the mouth, throat, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, rectum, and anus—the eight major organs.
The digestive system also includes the salivary glands, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas, all of which produce digestive juices and enzymes. Different digestive disorders emerge as a result of dysfunctionalities in the digestive system. Let's take a look at the three most typical gastrointestinal problems.
#1 Candida Overgrowth:
Candida is a type of yeast fungus that naturally occurs in your mouth and intestines, where it helps with digestion. However, when Candida levels rise, they can cause damage throughout the body.
Candida albicans is a yeast that usually lives in a person's gut, vagina, mouth, and skin. If this yeast grows too much, it can cause symptoms of candida syndrome. Candida albicans yeast is not harmful when present in small amounts, but an overgrowth can lead to a variety of health problems in the digestive tract. Candida overgrowth is a constant threat that can affect any part of your body at any time. If you don't treat it, it could turn into a pathogenic fungus, whose invasive roots can cause a wide range of uncomfortable symptoms.
If there is too much Candida in the intestines, it can get into the bloodstream and cause a number of uncomfortable symptoms and even serious health problems. When a patient takes a chemical not naturally found in their body, it can lead to candida overgrowth. Steroids, antibiotics, and alcohol all exacerbate candida syndrome. Contraceptives, estrogen replacement therapy, acute and chronic stress, recreational drugs, chemotherapy, malnutrition, and poor lifestyle choices are additional contributors. Candida syndrome has many different symptoms, such as frequent cases of oral thrush, stomach pain, skin rashes and other skin problems, vaginitis, breathing problems, and muscle pain.
#2 Leaky Gut Syndrome
There has been a worldwide explosion in cases of leaky gut syndrome in recent years. In your digestive tract, there is a lining much like a net with tiny openings. These microscopic openings serve as filters, allowing the passage of only the desired substances. It blocks larger, potentially dangerous substances from entering the body.
Damage to the intestinal lining results in intestinal permeability, also referred to as "leaky gut." When these pinholes get bigger, harmful things like gluten, bad bacteria, and bits of food that haven't been digested can get into the body and do a lot of damage.
A bacterial imbalance, or dysbiosis, can cause Leaky Gut Syndrome in a person. Leaky gut syndrome can be caused by eating poorly, being under stress for an extended period of time, or having too many toxins in the body.
The following symptoms are associated with LGS or may be caused by it:
Problems with bowel regularity such as persistent diarrhea, constipation, or gas
problems with the skin, such as acne or eczema
#3 Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS):
The gastrointestinal (GI) disorder known as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is characterized by episodes of abdominal pain or discomfort that occur at regular intervals and are tied to bowel movements. The large intestine is affected by irritable bowel syndrome. Abdominal pain, distention, and a shift in bowel habits are all possible side effects. Constipation is a symptom experienced by some individuals with this disorder. Even though IBS can be very painful, it does not cause any permanent damage to the intestines.
Having IBS is common. It affects 5-10% of people worldwide, including children and adults of both genders. It affects women twice as much as men and is most common in people under 45. The root of IBS is still unknown. Your doctor may order a number of tests to rule out the possibility of other diseases. X-rays, blood tests, and even a stool sample could be among the diagnostic procedures considered. A sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy may also be performed by your doctor. Diet, stress management, probiotics, and medication are all effective treatment options for the majority of people with irritable bowel syndrome.
