Dr. Brody’s Overview on Gastrointestinal Health
Your gastrointestinal (aka digestive or gut) health is tremendously important and can affect many different aspects of your daily life. Many people are unaware of the importance of this body system. The digestive system comprises everything from mouth to anus along with the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas.
Its main function is to absorb, break down and utilize nutrients from the food you consume. Since the GI system is so large, it overlaps other bodily systems, including, immune system, mental health, and allergies. There is an enormous amount of research on the gut-brain connection and the gut-immune system connection. Digestive health is an area where Naturopathic Physicians shine.
