When the leaves of the plant begin to look sick, the wise gardeners dig up its root to see what it is. They are well aware that in most plants the cause of the disease should be sought in the invisible eye and the root hidden in the soil. They are not surprised that the first symptoms appear far from the root, on the leaves. They know that in order to be healthy, the leaves must receive nutrients from the roots immersed in the soil. I learned about it in childhood, watching the gardeners outside my house.
In the process of searching for answers to my own questions and solutions to my own problems, I, from a narrow specialist in Western medicine, gradually became a doctor with broad views. Studying other healing traditions, I derived a common concept for them: health and illness begin in the intestines. This concept, the essence of which I initially did not understand, contained the answer to my questions. Hidden from the eyes, like the root of a plant, the intestines absorb nutrients from the food - our soil. From his health depends on whether the body receives the necessary building materials. Toxin damage, depression, irritable bowel syndrome, nutritional deficiencies, mucus, acidity, serotonin production - all these disparate puzzle elements are combined into a multi-level matrix that is the answer to my “how” and “why”: each system or body function has a direct connection with intestines.

Most people underestimate the importance of intestinal health. In the foreground are other organs, such as the heart. However, in my case, information about this system turned out to be the missing link between irritable bowel syndrome and depression.
The gut is of paramount importance to human life. It is a high-precision machine that not only supplies the body with the necessary building materials, but also determines who should be trusted. For the balanced functioning of this machine requires certain conditions. When we deviate from the natural settings, the conditions of functioning of the intestine deteriorate, and the body may be deficient in nutrients. In these cases, intuition may suffer, seasonal allergies, depression, constipation, and excess weight may return, despite abstinence from food. There may be an unusual reaction to products that have not previously caused it.

Toxins often primarily affect the intestines. This is not a single body, it is a whole system that performs important, diverse and almost magical functions. A brief overview of the four main components of this system will help you understand how it can encompass the causes of various diseases.

    The jaws are elongated, providing implantation of a tooth with an increased surface area necessary for chewing vegetable feed. In addition, the jaws are deepened, providing a receptacle for the immersed parts of the long-crown teeth necessary to compensate for the erasure of the teeth due to such an abrasive diet. Like the incisors already discussed earlier, the molars can continue to grow in
  2. Who discovered the snake root?
    Along with the methods borrowed from Europe (and later from America), Indian doctors for many centuries used their own means, recommended by ancient books. These books make up the Indian healing system called Ayur-Veda, under the auspices of the Indian god of medicine, Dhan-Vanthari. When I visited in 1948 the State Psychiatric Hospital in
  3. The concept of "general adaptation syndrome"
    General adaptation syndrome, a set of general protective reactions that occur in the body of animals and humans under the action of significant strength and duration of external and internal stimuli; These reactions contribute to the restoration of imbalance and are aimed at maintaining the constancy of the internal environment of the body - Homeostasis. The concept of A. with. put forward by the Canadian scientist G. Selye
  4. General urine analysis
    Examination of any patient always begin with a general analysis of urine. This is a mandatory and at the same time the simplest method. General urine analysis involves determining its color, transparency, odor, reaction, relative density, presence and degree of concentration of glucose and protein in the urine, counting blood cells, urinary tract epithelial cells, cylinders, identifying
  5. Common arterial trunk
    CHD, in which one vessel departs from the base of the heart, providing systemic, pulmonary and coronary circulation. Another name for blemish is persistent arterial trunk. The frequency of pathology is 0.030.07 per 1000 live births, about 1.1% among all CHD, 3% among the critical CHD. The barrel has a single valve (truncal), on which from two to six wings (most often -

  7. general review
    The parts of the respiratory tract are the nasopharynx, larynx, trachea and bronchial tree. The vast surface of the nasal cavity (nasal concha and septum), which is covered with a well-supplied blood mucosa, plays an important role in warming and moistening the inhaled air. The cilia of the epithelium is responsible for the capture and movement of small foreign particles. In children, the nasal passages and located below
  8. General and gynecological examination
    External examination of patients begins with an assessment of the type of constitution. Infantile body type is characterized by a small growth, proportional to the addition, evenly narrowed pelvis. The mammary glands are small, with flat and small nipples, there is a lack of hair development on the genitals. The first menstruation in these women often comes later than the usual period, and menstruation
  9. General examination and anamnesis
    When collecting anamnesis, they find out whether the patient has chronic lung diseases (pneumonia, tuberculosis, etc.), as well as social and occupational factors that contribute to their appearance: occupational hazards (working in a gassed, dusty room, working with asbestos, cement, etc.) e.), smoking. Pay attention to cough (perhaps bronchitis - you need an in-depth study),
  10. The total chemical composition of viruses
    An indispensable component of the viral particle is any one of the two nucleic acids, protein and ash elements. These three components are common to all viruses, without exception, while the other dipalpoids and carbohydrates are not all viruses. Viruses, consisting only of nucleic acid protein and ash elements, most often belong to the group of simple ones.

  12. The general nature of the action on the body
    Under production conditions, toxic substances enter the human body through the respiratory tract, skin, as well as through the gastrointestinal tract. The way substances enter the body depends on their state of aggregation (gaseous and vaporous substances, liquid and solid aerosols) and on the nature of the technological process (heating of the substance, grinding, etc.). Toxic effect of substances
  13. General adaptation syndrome (stress)
    When the action on the body of various damaging factors in it there are two kinds of changes. On the one hand, sex and damage are detected, and on the other hand, protective-compensatory mechanisms are activated as a reaction to damage. The last group of mechanisms has always attracted the attention of researchers. I.P. Pavlov designated it as the “physiological measure” of the organism. In 1932, the American physiologist U.
    The main function of the nervous system is the regulation of the physiological processes of the body, depending on the constantly changing environmental conditions. The nervous system performs adaptation (adaptation) of the organism to the external environment, regulation of all internal processes and their constancy (homeostasis) - constancy of body temperature, biochemical reactions, arterial blood pressure, processes

    Departments of the nervous system: Central (CNS) (brain, spinal cord, which are protected by the meninges consisting of connective tissue) Peripheral (PNS) (nerves, nerve nodes): somatic (voluntary regulation) and autonomous (involuntary). Autonomous - manages the work of internal organs, does not obey the will of the person, consists of two sections: the sympathetic and

    The bridge, pons, is from the base of the brain a thick white shaft bordering on the back of the upper end of the medulla oblongata, and on the front with the legs of the brain. The lateral border of the bridge is an artificially drawn line through the roots of the trigeminal and facial nerves, linea trigeminofacialis. Laterally from this line are the middle cerebellar legs, pedunculi cerebellares medii,
