How do we manage our digestive system to ensure that it is not overwhelmed by nutrients, toxins and chemicals?
The body’s main organ, the stomach, has to be maintained in optimum health.
It has to provide a healthy balance of food and nutrients and is also important for the production of hormones.
Our digestive system consists of a number of glands, called villi.
The villi help the body digest food and break down fats, which help us to absorb and use nutrients.
We also produce mucus and other substances that help to prevent illness and to prevent infections.
What does a gastroenterologist do?
A gastroenterology practitioner can provide a detailed and comprehensive overview of the digestive system, including: What is a villi?
A villi is the membrane surrounding a cell, which contains the cells that make up the digestive tract.
The membrane contains the food and minerals that are made available to the cell.
The size of a villus is measured in millimetres.
It varies depending on the size of the villus and how large the villi are.
Where is a stomach?
The stomach is located in the lower part of the large intestine (colon).
The large intestine contains the largest portion of the intestine.
The colon contains a large amount of fat, including large amounts of protein and vitamins.
The intestines are the main body of the body.
Are there a lot of bacteria?
A lot of microorganisms live in the intestines.
These include some that live in your gut, some that are found in the colon, and some that have colonic bacteria that live outside the colon.
The presence of microorganism in the intestine can help to support a healthy intestinal tract.
What happens when the villis are full?
The villus becomes overloaded.
The amount of food that is available for absorption becomes inadequate.
This can lead to an increase in gas and a decreased amount of digestive enzymes, which may lead to diarrhoea.
Gastric emptying can also lead to the formation of acid bacteria in the stomach.
The bacteria produce acids and are thought to cause acid reflux, which can lead both to an increased risk of diarrhoeas and stomach ulcers.
What do the different types of bacteria look like?
There are four types of microbes that live inside the stomach: Firmicutes – those that live on the walls of the gut; Probiotics – bacteria that produce acid; Lactobacilli – those found in milk and yogurt; and Probiotic-producing Bifidobacterium, which produces Lactococcus lactis.
There are also species of bacteria called enterococci that live within the gut.
What causes an imbalance?
Changes in the composition of the intestine wall.
Changes in a person’s diet, especially those that lead to changes in gut flora, can increase the risk of developing diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, type 1 diabetes and colorectal cancer.
When the villes are full, there is a higher risk of the breakdown of fat and the accumulation of nutrients, including fat-soluble vitamins and minerals.
How does a person manage the gut?
The first thing a gastroentologist should do is to understand what is normal and what is not.
A person’s digestive system is a complex system of thousands of small cells called villus lumens, which form a network of cells known as a mucus layer.
A villus contains a collection of cells called the villiculosa.
The mucus contains substances called lipids and proteins.
It also contains digestive enzymes and bacteria that digest fats, sugar and other nutrients.
It’s these bacteria that help digest food.
Some villi have an area in which the mucus is thickened, meaning that it contains lots of bacteria and other small cells.
This may be because the villia have been over-exposed to toxins and may be filled with debris.
Another thing that can affect a villa is acidity.
This is the amount of acid in the mucosae.
Acidic mucus causes gas and the mucous layer to feel tight.
The acid also encourages bacteria to produce acids, which leads to the production and breakdown of mucus.
When there is too much acid, the villous cells in the villa are too big and the villuses are not able to hold the excess.
This creates an imbalance, which is also called a dysmotility.
How can I manage my gut?
It’s important to recognise when a villous cell imbalance is happening and to manage the villas to maintain a healthy gut.
In some cases, if the villal volume in a villium is less than 5mm2, the gut is likely to have an acid-deficient villi and there may be gas, gas-producing bacteria or the presence of small, acid-producing or colonic-forming bacteria.
There may also be the signs of chronic disease.
If a villite is abnormally large
