Do you worry your body is not getting everything it needs from the foods you eat? Does it feel like you experience discomfort with everything you eat? Stomach and digestive problems negatively affect the lives of many people, and they go beyond just uncomfortable symptoms. Experiencing issues with digestion and the GI tract can also prevent your body from absorbing essential nutrients, making it difficult for your body to function to the best of its ability.

What Are Stomach and Digestive Problems?

Stomach and digestive problems refer to issues related to poor gastrointestinal, or GI, health. The GI tract is the body system through the entire body that is primary related to and responsible for digestion. It includes:

  • Anus
  • Esophagus
  • Large intestine
  • Mouth
  • Small intestine
  • Stomach
  • Throat
  • Upper chest

While those are the primary parts of the GI tract, other important related parts include:

  • Appendix
  • Gallbladder
  • Liver
  • Lymphatic glands
  • Pancreas
  • Salivary glands

Stomach and digestive problems manifest themselves differently for everyone, and they may be experienced differently for different foods consumed. Common problems include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Bloating
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Heartburn
  • Indigestion
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

Most of these experiences are not curable, but they can be manageable with proper care and resources.

How Do They Affect Daily Life and Health?

The GI tract is responsible for breaking down food so nutrients can be absorbed into the bloodstream to be delivered throughout the body. This is essential for regulating body functions and providing you with the energy you need.

Stomach and digestive problems occur when your body is unable to break down food to deliver the necessary nutrients. This may cause other health concerns, such as:

  • Bloating and gas
  • Fatigue
  • Hair loss
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Inflammation
  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • Pain
  • Poor immune function

GI health has an impact on your overall health and wellness, but experiences may be managed. Testing and special diets may help offer insight as to your personal health as well as indicate particularly troublesome foods for you.
