In order to achieve optimum health and vitality one needs to provide support for their body to create balance, harmony, health, longevity & vitality. This is an holistic approach, addressing the entire body system and underlying functions, rather than simply supressing symptoms.*

Supporting A Healthy Digestive System*
The body’s mechanisms that affect digestive health need support as well. In eastern medicine philosophies, promoting balance and good health can be better achieved through stress reduction activities (like yoga, tai chi or meditation), detoxification, adequate clean water, effective supplementation, healthy diet, exercise and other healthy and natural techniques.*
What is the Digestive System?*
Your digestive system is a series of joined hollow organs that runs from your mouth to your anus and includes your esophagus, stomach, and small and large intestines. Your liver, gallbladder and pancreas are also involved and produce digestive juices and enzymes to help digestion.*
What Can Happen with Digestive System Problems?*
All these organs work together to maintain a properly balanced digestive system. But, when this system breaks down, many types of disorders or diseases can result. The symptoms can vary widely:*
- Blood in your stool*
- Changes in bowel habits*
- Severe abdominal pain*
- Unintentional weight loss*
- Heartburn not relieved by antacids*
In order to prevent these types of symptoms, it is important for individuals to make a healthy digestive system a priority in their life. Many people believe, “You are what you eat”. Others believe “You are what you absorb”. The bottom line is that the healthier your digestion is, the better able your body will be to break down food into its smallest parts and then absorb them, providing cells with nourishment and energy.*
Digestive System Health Supplements*
Various digestive supplements and digestive aids may provide digestion benefits such as over-the-counter dietary supplements. For instance, digestive enzymes help digest carbohydrates and may allow people to eat foods that normally cause digestive gas. Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners use herbal ingredients that support liver, pancreas and gallbladder function to promote digestive health.*
