On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) look at the powerhouse of the Digestive System… the Small Intestine
(May take a few seconds to begin playing)
Episode 16 - The Small Intestine Has A Big Impact On Your Health
The Stomach and Small Intestine are responsible for the breakdown (digestion) of our foods. This breakdown allows nutrients to become small enough so that they can be absorbed into the body and used as nourishment for our cells, muscles, glands and organs.
Get your digestion right and you will probably find your Nervous System (especially the brain), your Immune System and your Hormone Systems all working better.
In fact, your skin should also respond positively to a healthy Digestive System.
Last week, we talked about the Stomach and its role in digestion.
In this week’s episode we continue discussing the Digestive System by focusing on the role of the Small Intestine.
- We discuss why, although the Stomach needs to be acidic, the Small Intestine needs to be more alkaline.
- The two (actually three) organs that contribute enzymes to the Small Intestine
- The powerful substance that helps eliminates toxins from the body… via the Small Intestine
- What to do if you don’t have a Gall Bladder
As always, we hope you enjoy this episode and share it with a friend.
