Gastro enteritis

Only the digestive system is equipped to process food. Once a particular food escapes the system it is tagged as an antigen. The body shows its displeasure with bloating and gas.

Besides this response food sensitivities have also been implicated in a number of other digestive problems, including constipation and diarrhea. On occasion inflammation of the inside lining of the stomach and intestines occurs - gastroenteritis.

Gatroenteritis is the inflammation of the inside lining of the stomach and intestines. It often describes a sudden infection that affects the stomach and intestines. Gastroenteritis can also be caused by chemical or toxin exposure.

This condition commonly causes:

Causes of Gastro enteritis include:

The digestive system requires an adequate amount of enzymes to break down the food. Sometimes an individual may have a deficiency of an enzyme known as lactase, causing lactose intolerance.

The large intestine or colon eliminates waste. The efficient colon pulls 8- percent of the water (which carries electrolyte minerals) from the chyme, about two and a half gallons each day. This is absorbed into the blood stream. Healthy stool is composed of about two-thirds water, undigested fiber, and food particles. The other third is bacteria.

Sufficient water, fiber and beneficial intestinal organisms (probiotics or flora) are necessary for good health. A diet high in fiber is essential. It speeds transit time. This means waste isn't sitting in our colon producing toxins which are then absorbed into the blood.

Sufficient fiber also keeps our intestinal flora happy and balanced. Most importantly, it appears to be a preventative factor in several diseases of the large intestine, including colon cancer, hemorrhoids, diverticulitis, and irritable bowel syndrome.
