Digestive problems

Digestive problems not only cause discomfort and sometimes embarrassment. A good digestion is the very foundation of good health because although we may accept that "we are what we eat", it would be more accurate to say "we are what we digest!".

In many people digestion is not as good as it should be for a variety of reasons. "Indigestion" is what we call stomach discomfort after eating, but the antacids that many people use freely neutralise the stomach acid that is essential to digestion, and this may actually be present in too small a quantity rather than too great a quantity. This can then result in incomplete breakdown of food components which can have far-reaching effects.

Nutritional therapy places much importance on improving digestion where necessary.
