You know, some of us or most of us have gone through some kind of constipation or diarrhea in our lives and, you know, a continuous symptom like this is what we call IBS or irritable bowel syndrome. This is causing weight. And welcome to another episode. You know, digestion is key or is the primary key for everything that happens in our system because the food we put in gets broken down. That’s the first stage after chewing it, after the saliva working on it.
So it’s very important how dull how that food or the liquids that we drink get digested and then the absorption happens. So IBS is one of those gastrointestinal, you know, you know, basic functional gastrointestinal disorder where is characterized by, you know, been altered bowel habits. It could be constipation, it could be diarrhea. You know, it could be just irritability, you know, pain, a lot of gas and bloating and nausea and very, you know, sometimes the sensation of being complete evacuation.
So. You know, that basically where does it start from, you know, ideas just like other states, irritable bowel, where it’s more in the small intestines and in the sigmoid colon, which is the closest to your rectum. And it really is how deep the small, you know, the circular and the longer tell muscles in the small intestines and the colon move and move or push the fibers or the food through and basically the functional or the function of those muscles, how they move the food through the colon in and out of the rectum.
And that’s where they get basically not functioning or the brain is not responding to it. It is too fast or it’s just too slow with the constipation. And if it’s too fast, there’s diarrhea because it just kind of flushing things through. And, you know, to understand diarrhea and constipation, diarrhea is basically the body trying to get rid of something.
There’s like most likely infection or a bacterial infection. You know, sometimes when you have food poisoning or you eat something or you drink something when you’re traveling and you get this rash of diarrhea, obviously the body knows that there’s something that it doesn’t like and it’s trying to pull it out where it’s brings more water into the in the colon and starts, you know, your symptoms are diarrhea.
So constipation is your digestive juices, or your digestion is just not strong enough. It’s breaking those foods down. And when it reaches the small intestine, there is just not enough absorption and the food just sits there and the colon, it’s basically the press. Styles’s that’s supposed to happen in the colon are not happening where the movement of the colon pushes the food or the waste through. So, you know, IBS is a disorder characterized by the abnormality, increased mortality of those muscles or decreased mortality.
You know, these muscles, which are sort along to a very prone to this kind of motor abnormalities. So it’s important to understand when we have these minor symptoms in the beginning, because this is not happening overnight.
This happens again chronically for years and months. And where, if it’s not taken care of, it can become into IBS. And IBS, which is irritable, can cause a lot of other issues, because if there’s irritation, there is going to be the body sends out these drones that you say or the bacteria-fighting cells, which will start breaking this mucus lining and breaking down the colon lining where you can have diverticulitis.
You could have a lot of other information that’s happening, Crohn’s and also cancer. So important to understand that every disease, you know, starts with these minor symptoms. So we need to be tuned in. We have talked a lot about and we need to understand all these symptoms now. Let’s see how IBS is. You know, of course, what are these symptoms? How did occur? Of course, improper eating the wrong foods, the processed foods, you know, too much of a certain type of food allergens, of course, you know.
Too much sleep, too much processed, too many fizzy drinks, you know, a lot of these soft drinks, a lot of these carbonated drinks are really doing a lot of damage to intensive lining. If you’re having these regularly, of course, you’ve been having them here and there, that’s fine. But remember, doing something good or bad for a long period is going to cause problems because everything is relative and everything in moderation is the right thing to do.
Fried foods, you know, processed foods and, of course, medication. If you’re on certain types of medications, where you look at the side effects will lead to this kind of inflammation. So a bacterial infection could cause IBS. Inflammation, of course, could cause it long term. That’s been had been happening. But I think it’s all starts in the stomach where your digestive juices are just not strong enough, where they’re breaking that food down 100 percent.
So when it reaches the small intestines, the body recognizes exactly what it needs are proteins, the carbs, the fiber, the fat, and it’s absorbs what it needs and pushes through what it does not need. And then, of course, increasing that fiber in your diet, which makes sure that in the colon, all these talks don’t just stay there. They are scraped through and pushed through and, of course, water and other things that we want to make sure because the water will stimulate this peristalsis.
Now we talk about mind, body connection, and this is basically kind of Seanie showing you when you are anxious or when you when you have anxiety or your stress, you’re constricted. So will you call into your small intestines? It’s going to get constricted where it kind of prevents that peristalsis happening. So a lot of the cause of IBS is, you know, a lot of stress that happens now. There are different ways, different scenarios. Women are more likely to get IBS.
And just between that, your teenagers E to about 40 women. You know, of course, the menstrual cycle, the post military phase is when the progesterone is very high. So constipation kind of comes in or just before your cycle is starting. That’s where you might have diarrhea. You know, everyone has different symptoms, but a rise in those hormones can cause these issues. But if these symptoms are not taken care of or not realize, then you can prolong.
If they are prolonged, it will turn into IBS, which will turn into something really major or chronic when, you know, you reach cancer, when it’s very hard to kind of manage those symptoms. So digestion really important, making sure your food that you’re eating, you know, small amounts, Southern foods, nothing too heavy, nothing too much gravy, not too spicy. I mean, you can have these things here and there, but not your staple foods every day.
And depending on what you need and where you are, you know, things change just like the season in the cold in the winter. There is more likely for depression and anxiety set in. So a lot of these symptoms will creep up constipation, you know, diarrhea, maybe even the infections.
So you want to be aware and you want to be ready and you have these home remedies, whatever you’re doing or these supplements or, you know, herbs like Ginger Cardamone, you know, Peppermint Jeanetta and all those are very digestive grade to break down those foods properly so the body can recognize and start, you know, absorbing it properly now, you know, also making sure we are hydrated properly, make sure we have those mucosal or those mucus type foods, you know, cucumbers, okra.
Those are also great at lining those mucosal lining and rebuilding them because of lining. I mean, you know, I’m fifty. So I’m sure a lot of money because the lining has gone through and broken down, because if I had too many hot foods, hot liquids or too much cold liquids and too much cold food also can break or damage those foods. You know, I always say our bodies are ninety-eight, ninety-seven, ninety-eight points, you know, at room temperature.
What should be on our body temperature? The food and the liquids we eat should be at that temperature because the body will recognize the colder the food or the liquid is to every degree. It says in the video that it takes an hour extra for it to digest.
So if your basic meals are being digested within three to four hours, if you’re having a cold meal, and that’s just going to take a little longer. So, you know, be aware of these simple symptoms and make sure we are doing the right thing. Make sure we’re eating at the right time.
Not too big. Smaller meals not to exercise right after we eat. We all do these things. You know, I do a lot of these issues, but preventing them and really watching that you. Hey, I’ve got constipation. Let me take. Here of this, you have got diarrhea. Let me take care of this. So really being tuned in to your bodies and your system because the digestive system is one of the major systems. Without you digesting your food properly, you will not get your nutrients properly.
You’ll not get your vitamins properly, and thus you will have all other issues because the body will absorb the nutrients it needs. And you could have the whole gamut of a lot of other issues happening. So, you know, keep in mind, keep a look, be tuned in and let’s be safe in this pandemic. You know, the anxiety, I’m sure it’s going, you know, affecting many people at this current moment, which could affect or we can cause those IBS symptoms.
So addressing the mind also would benefit where you can take herbs like Tinnen or, you know, Kalamian or Magnesium to going to relax the mind to help you sleep better, which can prevent these symptoms occurring through IBS. I hope that was insightful. And we’ll talk again tomorrow evening. Same time, same place. Facebook Live. This is Mike Cosmic, from Peach Vitamins in Buckhead. Thank you. Have a good night.
