Stress affects every part of our digestive system. When we are stressed it activates the flight or fright response in our central nervous system. It shuts down the blood flow to the digestive muscles and decreases the secretions that are needed for digestion.
There are a wide range of diseases that are associated with high levels of stress, gastric ulcers, celiac disease, IBD and many more. The most common health complaint in America is poor digestion. Consumers spend billions of dollars each year on over-the-counter medicines and prescription drugs designed to temporarily relieve symptoms of gastrointestinal distress. Treatment of the underlying causes can prevent the development of more serious gastrointestinal diseases such as colitis, irritable bowel syndrome and diverticulitis.
