Defined second brain; it acts as a sort of "messenger of the abdominal part": its messages, however, come clear only when they become signals that often trigger general malaise.
But how does it work and what are the causes that, sometimes, don't allow its integrity?
The digestive process starts from the mouth
The term digestive system means that process of transformation and use of nutrients that starts from introducing, digesting and then absorbing the nutritional principles contained in food up to the elimination of waste.
The first thing we need to be sure of is that this whole journey is perfect and there are no invaders during all the various processes of food transformation.
The goal is for food to go from the mouth to the bloodstream in an efficient and planned manner and that, when digested, it meets the intestinal microvilli where the nutrients will enter the bloodstream.
Chewing is a guarantee of pre-digestion that supports the work of the stomach and intestines
Dr. Eric Serrano, when explaining and analyzing the relationship between the intestine and the cardiovascular system, parogones the first at the "passport control at the airport" to underline the precision that must exist in the food absorption process.
But, often, it can happen that something is not working well and irritation of the intestinal tissue occurs.
An example may be what happens in the presence of foods containing gluten: intolerant subjects will find themselves with the space, between the villi where the food has now been absorbed, dilated and inflamed with the consequence that some unwanted pathogenic elements are able to reach the bloodstream.
If this inflammatory state rarely occurs or the body has enough anti-inflammatory power, the body can neutralize it but if the problem becomes chronic or the body is already experienced, the disorder can become very serious and affect the organ.
Its all the fault of gluten?
Stress is another important pathogen capable of interfering with the proper functioning of the intestine and poor digestion.
The same is true for some categories of foods that the human body does not tolerate, such as fiber in people with irritable bowel syndrome. The group of foods that can most irritate the intestine is called big 8 and includes nuts, peanuts, milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, soy and wheat; all foods that could trigger negative reactions in the body.
What to do and how to cure the problem?
In most cases and as can also be observed in the protocol of Doctor Eric Serrano, a true expert in this field, the elimination of the food that has triggered adverse reactions or its prudent consumption is required: removal and, subsequently, reintroduction for see if side effects are still present.
Generally, the person who is intolerant to a food or, for example, gluten, will tend to develop swelling, joint pain, skin or general inflammation.
To ensure that the body cleans itself and starts from scratch, it is necessary to remove foods for at least 30 days and, during this period, a valid help could come from elements such as glutamine and probiotics that can repair the damaged intestinal tract.
Glutamine is very effective for repairing the intestinal tissue and, above all, for restoring the dilated villi that allow all elements harmful to the body to pass through.
Digestive enzymes, hydrochloric acid and bromelain, which help digest proteins, carbohydrates and fats, can also be of enormous help in facilitating the transformation and repair processes.
What if the problem persists?
If after the elimination and subsequent reintroduction of food the problem recurs, its advisable to consult a specialist.
Its important to reiterate that stress and poor nutrition are determining factors that can easily trigger inflammation of the intestinal tract as it is proven to be capable of weakening the bacterial flora and the immune system in general.
Periodic checks are also recommended when certain disturbances are overcome.
