Chronic or long-term illness can put an enormous strain on the body’s resources. The energy expended fighting off pathogens, repairing damage and dealing with inflammation often leaves little left over for work, family and daily activities. Other health concerns may arise or worsen, further complicating the situation. Seeing a path back to better health under these conditions can be difficult and frustrating.
One of the foundations of good health that is too often overlooked is the health of the digestive system. The digestive system is responsible for providing the body with the raw materials it needs to maintain itself, processing an average of 1,100 pounds of food a year. Too often, however, the digestive system is over-worked and under-appreciated. Making sure that digestion is working smoothly and efficiently can yield huge dividends in terms of increased energy, healing and vitality.
