The gastrointestinal system encompasses the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and rectum as well as the accessory organs of digestion which include the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas.

The symptoms of digestive disorders and gastrointestinal disease are misunderstood or misinterpreted by many healthcare practitioners as well as the patients suffering from them. Symptoms may include heartburn, indigestion (dyspepsia), constipation, diarrhea, inflammation of the bowel, nausea, vomiting, and more.

With diligence, many patients are thankfully able to improve, or even eliminate, these symptoms through a combination of treatments and therapies that include diet, probiotics, fiber, laxatives, and prescription medications.

It should be noted, however, that there is no one-size-fits-all cure. This is why Foundational Medicine Review supports the crucial need to also focus on the preventive side of these issues such as balanced nutrition, vitamins, minerals, and their proper absorption and bioavailability.
