"Our body will always supply the energy our digestive system needs to benefit from the food we have eaten, no matter how little that leaves for other systems. Perhaps you have experienced this when, after a large meal, it takes all the energy you can muster just to stay awake. That energy demand robs all other systems of the body of the vital energy they need to keep up. Thus it should not surprise us to learn that when we eat cooked and processed foods, especially when we overeat, our immune system actually becomes less active."

"Bile salts may be included in digestive enzymes. Enzyme supplements usually include protease, which aids in protein digestion, lipase, which aids in fat digestion, and amylase or cellulose which aids in carbohydrate digestion. Typical dosage is 250 to 500 mgs with meals. Lecithin Lecithin is a type of fat made from soya beans that is needed by every human cell. It is composed mostly of Choline, which is a B vitamin, linoleic acid and inositol. It aids the liver and helps to reduce cholesterol. This is beneficial in gallstones because gallstones are made up of cholesterol."

"It helps to conduct signals to the digestive tract when to contract and move food along. This condition is thought to occur when the vagus nerve, stomach muscles or intestines do not function properly. Food moves slowly or not at all. What is the Cause of Gastroparesis? • Diabetes is a common cause of gastroparesis. People who have diabetes usually have high blood sugar which over time damages the blood vessels. This may cut off the blood, oxygen and nutrient supply to certain nerves. The vagus nerve may be damaged by diabetes which in mm causes poor gastric emptying."

"Your digestive Juices are as Strong as Paint Stripper. The lining of the stomach outputs gastric juices that contain strong hydrochloric acid. This is where the body digests proteins. This acid is corrosive enough to remove paint!"

"It is based on combining certain types of foods to utilize our digestive chemistry to the fullest. This is a particularly good idea for those who suffer with bloating, gas, constipation and diarrhea. Some people lose weight following the principles of food combining. In my practice, I use a very basic form of food combining. Eat fruit alone and at least half an hour or more away from other foods. Combine starches with vegetables and combine protein or fat with vegetables. Do not eat fruit with any other food and don't combine protein or fat with starches. Fruits are a simple carbohydrate."

"Chapter 2 explains the link between enzymes and digestive health. Chapter 3 identifies how enzymes help to defend against and overcome poor health and disease. Chapter 4 offers simple solutions for incorporating enzymes into your daily life for a fast and effective path to better health—no matter what your health issues. In part 2, I offer enzyme therapy recommendations for treating specific illnesses and ailments, covering everything from acne and athlete's foot to thyroid imbalance and viral infections. Enzymes have changed the lives of millions of people, and they can change yours too."

"There are many mechanisms by which probiotics inhibit the growth of bad bacteria in the human digestive tract: 1. Competitive nutrient consumption 2. Epithelial cell receptor interactions 3. Excretion of antimicrobial substances 4. Interaction with the immune system. These mechanisms and other actions of probiotics were discussed in detail earlier in this chapter. So lets move on and investigate how probiotics work against specific bad microbes. Candida Everyone's body is host to Candida {Candida albicans). Candida is a type of yeast."

"Historically, more bacteria from soil found its way into our digestive systems. This is one of the bases for the theory of why to use this type of supplement. It is important to note that culturing probiotics Are Probiotics in Supplements Alive? Inside those capsules are dried bacteria that despite most peoples belief are alive! The microbes are simply dormant and stable. Refrigeration increases the stability of probiotics, particularly in dairy products. Follow the manufacturer's recommendation on how to store the product to ensure maximum survivability."

"In this book, I will reveal how simple the path to good health can be—all because of the power of enzymes, the amazing proteins that support the basic metabolic and digestive processes that make life possible. Enzymes are the providers of metabolic energy (or cellular energy); they play a vital role in digestion, our immune system, our vitality, the aging process, and literally every function of the body. Our bodies produce trillions of enzymes to support these functions, but the vast majority of us find ways to derail that production process through poor life choices."

"Though you may experience this temporary increase in gas production, the knowledge that your new dietary choices can relieve virtually all your digestive difficulties, as well as help you avoid cancer and heart disease, makes it worth a little extra gas. Avoid Gassy Foods Milk products are very troublesome, especially for most non-Caucasian people (Asians, Blacks, Hispanics, Indians, Eskimos) who can't digest lactose, although about 20 percent of Caucasians also experience lactose intolerance."

"This is one clear area where chiropractic, massage therapy, and other expert bodywork systems such as Rolfing and Feldenkrais can have a big impact on "seemingly" digestive problems. Normalizing spinal muscles and aligning the body's frame can remove mechanical pressure that irritates the nerves at the spine. This will ensure that the muscular functions of the esophagus will occur properly. Brain Management for Your Esophagus One conscious awareness exercise you might try is to swallow your well-chewed food and then count 5-6 seconds."
- John K. Pollard, The digestive Awareness Diet: You Are HOW You Eat (Get the book.)

"I quickly began feeling better. The digestive problems that had tormented me since childhood became a thing of the past. As I reflected upon my lifelong quest for relief from within the medical community, I wondered why no one had ever asked me the simple question, "John, what do you eat every day?" And why was it that I never heard anything about this food/health connection in all my years of medical training?"
- John A. McDougall, Dr. McDougall's digestive Tune-Up (Get the book.)

"Once you do swallow, the food seems "stuck" in your throat Ways to Truly Help Your Esophagus The best way to help the "heartburn type" symptoms of the esophagus, is to follow the digestive guidelines for the stomach in the next chapter. Chewing completely and drinking diluted apple cider vinegar will help heartburn immensely. The symptoms that involve "difficulty swallowing" are much more problematic for patients. These are symptoms that often develop after a "seemingly unrelated" fall or car accident, or when "under stress."
- John K. Pollard, The digestive Awareness Diet: You Are HOW You Eat (Get the book.)

"Very few health practitioners understand the significance of the ICV in digestive problems. Not all the material entering the tube is going to be absorbed as food. In fact, much of what is ingested and processed will continue to flow through the tube for eventual elimination. At the point where the small intestine ends, it sends its watery waste products into the large intestine. Problems with an open ileocecal valve (Ileocecal Valve Syndrome) are extremely common in today's society yet its symptoms are often misdiagnosed."

- John K. Pollard, The digestive Awareness Diet: You Are HOW You Eat (Get the book.)

"As you follow the principles of the digestive Awareness Diet and integrate them into your life, you will become aware of your body in new ways. You will begin to see how powerfully your eating habits can affect your body on a meal-by-meal basis. I hope by now that you understand clearly why I haven't told you WHAT to eat; instead I've told you HOW YOU are the person responsible to decide which foods work for YOUR individual body and which don't, based on how they make your body feel after you eat them with conscious awareness."

"Larry and Louise Borton, both in midlife, came to my office a little over two years ago with a mile-long list of ailments reaching from one end of the digestive tract to the other. To say these two are not bashful is an understatement. With no more prodding than a casual So what brings you here today? Larry and Louise took turns rattling off every intimate detail about their health and their bodies. They had seen many other doctors and reported taking a cabinet full of prescription and nonprescription drugs in pursuit of relief from their symptoms."

"Hydrochloric acid, pepsin, and muscular movement produce a thoroughly mixed, watery solution called chyme, which then leaves the stomach for the small intestine."

"Lactobacillus casei L. casei is a lactic acid-producing bacterium of human origin. It is closely related to L. rhamnosus and L. acidophilus and has some of the same immuno-modulating effects as other Lactobacilli species. It has been found in research studies to offer health benefits to those suffering from diarrhea and infectious disease. This may be due to its ability to produce bacteriocins, which are compounds that inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria in the small intestine. L. casei may offer some preventative effects against cancer. L."

"It is not surprising that researchers are discovering that probiotic supplementation is useful in a wide variety of immune-based ailments including allergies, asthma, eczema and irritable bowel disease. The gut microflora is an important part of the intestine's defense barrier. This is known because where there is no microflora more antigens are able to get across the intestinal lining and gain access to the body. In other words, when there are no probiotics present, the defense barrier is weak."

"This too contributes to digestive illness. We eat to give nourishment to our bodies, but meals are also a time for relaxation, rest, refreshment and renewal. If we are relaxed while eating, we digest food better. Numerous studies show that our mental state while eating has bearing on how well we digest food. People seem to know this intuitively. Saying grace or taking a couple of moments to center ourselves before eating is a global custom. Food and the Environment Thousands of years ago, people foraged and hunted for food."

"It forms a gel in your intestines that regulates the flow of waste material through your digestive tract. This type of fiber is found in oatmeal, oat bran, dried peas, beans, lentils, apples, pears, strawberries, and blueberries. Soluble fiber is good for you, but no matter how much of it you eat, it won't influence your hormonal equilibrium. Insoluble fiber, on the other hand, can directly help to decrease estrogen overload. It binds itself to extra estrogen in the digestive tract, which is then excreted by the body."

"The digestive tract needs adequate rest to build up digestive enzymes for proper digestion. 5) Detoxification and cellular repair occur more efficiently when the body is not digesting. 6) The healthier you eat, the faster you will diminish the desire to eat between meals and the symptoms of toxic hunger. Some helpful hints to combat snacking are: • Eat a salad or raw vegetables with a dip to start both lunch and dinner. • Keep lots of frozen fruits and vegetables and pre-washed fresh items in your home. • Have cooked greens or soups with greens at every lunch and dinner."

"Tobacco has a negative effect on the digestive system. • Luncheon meats, pastries, fast-foods and margarine: If you eat these foods you are probably getting too much fat, especially saturated fat. Margarine and most pastries also contain "hydrogenated oils," which are absorbed into our cells but are detrimental to our health. They make the cell membranes stiff and stifle the intake of nutrients and outgo of wastes, promote free radical activity, and contribute to atherosclerosis and inflammatory diseases."
- Elizabeth Lipski, Digestive Wellness: How to Strengthen the Immune System and Prevent Disease Through Healthy Digestion (Get the book.)

"Dietary fiber, found in fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole grains, is beneficial to our digestive tract and reduces risk of GI illness. In fact, short-chained fatty acids (like buty-rate, the main fuel of the colon) are manufactured directly from fiber-rich foods and protect us against diseases of the colon. Not only what we eat, but the way we eat has changed?for the worse. Often, we eat the same way we put gas in our cars: stop, fuel, go. We eat 45 percent of meals away from home, up from 39 percent in 1980 and 34 percent in 1980."

"Animal products, especially dairy protein of any kind, will disrupt good bowel habits almost immediately, with normal function not returning until three to four days after discontinuing these foods and reintroducing healthful ones. Exercise and drinking more water have been suggested for relief of constipation, but their benefits are questionable. Priming the Pump ears of poor bowel function characterized by constipation can cause residual problems, such as bowel distention and a "lazy bowel," especially if there has also been laxative abuse."

"I recommend an herbal bowel cleanse to patients each spring, and certainly if there are digestive symptoms. • Eat a healthy diet with plenty of whole grains, and four to eight varieties of fresh fruits and vegetables each day. Genetics and Estrogen We live in exciting medical times. You can determine from a simple blood test if you have inherited sluggish metabolic pathways that place you at risk for breast cancer, heart disease, or bone loss. If one of your first-degree relatives has breast cancer, your risk of breast cancer increases twofold."

"From the liver, hormones are passed into the digestive tract in the bile to be excreted. It makes sense, then, that if your bowels are sluggish or if your liver is busy breaking down pesticides, pollutants, toxins, caffeine, alcohol, cigarette smoke, or other drugs, things can go wrong. Harmful metabolites place you at greater risk for hormone-related cancers. Genetics play a big role here. How you break down hormones is handed down in your genes. Fortunately, genetic tendencies can be helped with the right dietary choices and supplements."

"Calcium is also recycled back to the digestion in digestive juices. Calcium is absorbed in the upper part of the intestines in an active transport process. With higher levels of calcium intake, diffusion also plays a role in absorption from the intestines into the blood. The absorption of calcium from the intestines is controlled by the active form of vitamin D, calcitriol. Calcium absorption is highest at 400 mg daily with about 30 percent absorption. Higher intakes of calcium result in lower absorption. Calcium absorption diminishes in old age, partly because of lower calcitriol levels."

"But if you eat too much and/or : if you "graze" all day you will feel slowed down as the constant digestive j process saps energy. Stay light and bright : with regular SuperFoods meals and snacks. you stick with Monday as your day to have a soup and salad together for lunch or dinner. It will get you into the practice and Monday is the perfect day to commit to your plan, even if it takes some forethought to do so. In the Flex-Plan, you will find that you can choose any consistent day you like if for some reason Monday is not convenient for you."
