Digestive system is endowed with richness of natural powers which provide a self healing kind of effect .Then why we have wide array of digestive disorders? It is because we are unaware of the magical powers of digestive system. Most of the times lack of awareness and not taking care of our gut health is combined thus making you a regular sufferer of digestive worries.
When some digestive disorder makes us worrisome, it’s a time we make a quick move and see the imbalance in the vision of some bad lifestyle we have adopted.
A sneak at some of the bad lifestyle habits which may be giving you unhealthy gut. Some of the bad lifestyle habits include the following-
- Skipping meals
- Binging on junk food excessively
- Not drinking enough water

Bad lifestyle habits definitely push to the path of unhealthy life. Unhealthy life undoubtedly comes from unhealthy gut.
So, Do you understand the importance of healthy gut?
A healthy gut gives you the essence of healthy digestion experience. A healthy digestion experience is the natural experience our body is designed to have. God has innovatively designed each part of the body and for a particular purpose. Every body part works according to function it can perform that too in synchronization with other body parts.
It’s important to truly appreciate the intelligence of healthy gut. Let’s give a closer look in the next subsection.
The process of digestion begins in the mouth……
Digestion begins as soon as your smelling senses detect sumptuous food. The aroma sets the secretion of digestive juice that is saliva in the mouth. The amazing mechanical action by teeth breaks down the food flooded with saliva. Saliva is rich in sugar digesting enzymes thus a partial digestion is said to have taken place itself in the mouth. So it is important to properly chew your food before it goes to the road of food pipe.
So, next time you are chewing your food and giggling or talking along, do remember you are hampering the process of smooth digestion in your gut; as digestion begins in mouth😀
The road of food pipe is full of motion called Peristalsis as this motion is responsible for pushing the food towards the stomach. Stomach is the host of powerful digestive enzymes. The further breaking of food takes place in stomach by these powerful digestive enzymes. Stomach is the bin where all your food goes. Also, acid is also released along with enzymes which maintain the pH of food which will pass to the next podium of digestion that is intestine. Acid also prevents infections.
So, next time you trying to overeat, remember to eat in moderation and to your capacity. Your stomach bin can process a particular amount of food at a particular time.
Further processing in the intestine consists of processing of food by absorption and secretion processes. It is the final stage for action of enzymes to digest all components of food and further leading to absorption of food by body. So now you got the energy from food 😀
Indeed, the process of digestion is beautiful, magnificent and just perfect.
Adopting unhealthy habits will disturb the entire process of digestion and give you the following problems-
- Acid reflux
- GERD (gastro esophageal reflex disorder)
- IBS (irritable bowel syndrome)
- Abdominal pain
Do not ever try to fool the digestive system as it has been intellectually designed by Almighty. Keep going on with healthy habits or else suffer from digestion worries.
The choice is all yours!!!
