The digestive system may be the most important system underlying any and all chronic disease. The digestive system extracts and absorbs all vital nutrients from the things we eat and brings them into the body for growth, repair and to regenerate all our biochemical and physical needs. Another important function of the digestive system is to eliminate metabolic and environmental toxic wastes from the body. If one’s digestive system is not working it must often be healed before other health conditions can be addressed. Usually once the gut is healed many of the patient’s symptoms spontaneously resolve. Healing an irritable gut will prevent several diseases.
