|Links and causes
There is a very large number of gastrointestinal disorders. They range from esophagus problems, to gastritis, peptic ulcers, tumors of the stomach, small and large intestines, malabsorptions, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticular disease, polyps, etc. Many of them appear to be associated with poor nutrition, allergies, prescription drugs, or nutrient absorption problems. In many cases, these are interdependent and serve to further aggravate the condition.
One of the chief causes of alimentary canal disorders may be candidiasis, a difficult to diagnose yeast infection. Much has been recently made of this condition, and no doubt some exaggeration has crept into many otherwise sober evaluations. Nevertheless, the effects are real, as candidiasis can affect most body systems. But it is fairly useless to treat patients for this infection, unless it is grasped that the continuous and thoughtless use of broad spectrum antibiotics will always place the patient at risk.
The abuses of modern living
Other causes may be a variety of parasites, gall bladder dysfunction and a sluggish liver, half-paralyzed by years of alcohol, rich foods and abuse of prescription and over-the-counter drugs. Our internal organs and the genetic instructions that drive them were not designed for the abuses of modern living.
