Practical recommendations for the normalization of the gastrointestinal tract

Now, having gotten a little acquainted with the technology of the gastrointestinal tract, one should act in accordance with it. So, practical recommendations.

Do not drink plenty of fluids before meals. Enzymes are diluted and washed off into the underlying sections of the gastrointestinal tract.

Do not drink plenty of fluids immediately after eating. Drinking liquid will not only dilute the digestive juices of the small intestine, but also wash away nutrients past the fields of assimilation. The pancreas, liver, and also glands located in the small intestine will be forced to synthesize a new batch of secretion, depleting the body’s resources and overstrain. Therefore, after a carbohydrate meal (cereal, bread ...) it is advisable to drink after 3 hours, and after protein (meat, fish ...) - after 4-5 hours. If there is an acute desire to quench your thirst, then you can rinse your mouth and take 2-3 small sips. A liquid is simply water. Broths, juices, tea, coffee are liquid foods. However, its quantity, of course, should be moderate.

Chew your food thoroughly. If the food is poorly chopped, then both abdominal and parietal digestion suffers from this.

Do not eat with an abnormal emotional state. Fatigue, pain, fear, grief, anxiety, depression, anger, inflammation, etc. lead to the fact that the digestive juices cease to stand out and the normal movement of the digestive tract slows down or stops altogether. Food accepted in this condition is not digested, hence the feeling of discomfort or diarrhea. Based on this, if you experience pain, fever, inflammation - skip as many meals as you need for this condition to go away.

If you are tired, then take a rest before eating. Do not take too cold or too hot food, as well as unfamiliar and unusual in large quantities. Digestive enzymes are only active at our body temperature. If the food is cold or hot, then they will start their full action only when the food acquires body temperature. Take drinks and food of moderate temperature.

In our body, certain mechanisms of adaptation to food work. Therefore, introduce unfamiliar food into the diet gradually and increase its amount little by little.

There is only when hungry. A real feeling of hunger appears only when food has gone through all stages of digestion and assimilation. Only then does the concentration of nutrients in the blood decrease slightly. These signals come to the food center, and you feel a real feeling of hunger. A false sense of hunger appears when there are disorders in the gastrointestinal tract

If you constantly chew something, then you will not have mucus secreted to protect the mucous membrane of the stomach and duodenum 12. The secretory apparatus, especially cells with intermittent secretion, will be constantly overloaded.

Now consider the composition of food and their effect on the body.

The composition of the food. What does food consist of, and what role do food components play in maintaining the normal functioning of the body?

Water. The human body is 55-65% water. An adult body weighing 65 kg contains an average of 40 liters of water. As you age, the amount of water in the body decreases.

Many consider the decrease in the ability of colloidal substances, especially proteins, to bind a large amount of water to be one of the reasons for the aging of the body. Water is the main medium in which numerous chemical reactions and physicochemical processes that underlie life take place.
The body strictly regulates the water content in every organ and in every tissue. The constancy of the internal environment of the body, including a certain water content, is one of the main conditions for normal life.

Water that meets the requirements of the body is found in abundance in vegetables, fruits and freshly squeezed vegetable and fruit juices. Its vegetables and fruits contain 70-90%. Cucumbers, lettuce, tomatoes, zucchini, cabbage, pumpkin, green onions, rhubarb, asparagus and, of course, watermelons and melons contain a lot of water. As a rule, the intake of juicy fruits and vegetables saturates us with the best water, and we generally do not feel like drinking. Melt water has excellent characteristics. The consumption of water in freshly squeezed juices and melt water has a healing and anti-aging effect on the body. It is with such water that it is better to quench your thirst. However, you should not give up the consumption of other water. It is only desirable that it be close to natural origin. Avoid the “home-made” waters that have recently spread in plastic bottles.

Mineral water is healing not only with the composition of substances dissolved in them, but also with the information that water has absorbed through the thickness of the earth. Inorganic minerals dissolved in water are not absorbed by the body and are excreted as foreign material

Only plants can absorb inorganic substances. A person by type of nutrition is a heterotrophic animal and uses only those mineral substances that were previously processed by plants. In conditions of normal temperature and moderate physical exertion, the water that is available in salads, fruits, first courses, tea, etc. is enough for a person.

It is important to know the following: the consumption of foods high in sodium salts helps to retain water in the body. Potassium and calcium salts, on the contrary, remove water. Therefore, it is recommended to limit the intake of salt and foods containing sodium in diseases of the heart and kidneys, and increase foods rich in potassium and calcium. With dehydration, on the contrary, you should increase the dose of products with sodium.

Squirrels. Proteins are complex nitrogen-containing polymers. The amino acid composition of various proteins varies and is the most important characteristic of each protein, as well as a criterion of its value in nutrition.

The main functions of the protein in the body.

Plastic Proteins make up 15-20% of the wet weight of various tissues and are the main building material of cells, organs and intercellular substance.

Catalytic. Proteins are the main component of all currently known enzymes. And simple enzymes are purely protein compounds. Enzymes play a decisive role in the assimilation of nutrients by the human body and in the regulation of all intracellular metabolic processes.

Hormonal A significant part of hormones is protein in nature. These include insulin, pituitary hormones, etc.

Specificity function. The extreme diversity and uniqueness of individual proteins provides tissue individuality and species specificity.

Transport. Proteins are involved in the blood transport of oxygen, fats, carbohydrates, certain vitamins, hormones and other substances. Specific carrier proteins provide transport of various mineral salts and vitamins through cell membranes and intracellular structures.

Practical recommendations for the normalization of the gastrointestinal tract

  1. Gastrointestinal bleeding
    Gastrointestinal bleeding is a problem that doctors in the USA often encounter (300 thousand hospitalizations annually). The degree of hemorrhage varies from small slow bleeding to life-threatening conditions that contribute to the development of iron deficiency anemia. Mortality from upper gastrointestinal tract in the USA is 8%. This indicator has not changed much.
  2. Gastrointestinal Lymphoma
    In systemic dissemination of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (see chapter 13), any segment of the gastrointestinal tract may be involved again. However, up to 40% of lymphomas develop not in the lymph nodes, but in other organs, among which the intestine is the most frequent localization. By the time of recognition of the primary lymphoma of the gastrointestinal tract, the tumor process does not affect either the liver or
  3. Gastrointestinal metabolism
    Liquid and electrolytes are excreted in large quantities with digestive secretions in the gastrointestinal tract, but under normal conditions they are mostly reabsorbed (Fig. 20). Fig. 20. Secretion of water and electrolyte (meq / l of the amount of secretion indicated in the table) (Geigy). Potassium is excreted in the intestines (especially in the large intestine), and it is replaced during the exchange process with sodium (Gooptu with
  4. Gastrointestinal Tumors
    In the organs of the gastrointestinal tract (hollow organs, pancreas, liver, biliary tree), various types of tumors are much more common than in other systems of the body, and such patients have a much higher degree of probability of death. However, there is no single simple explanation for the etiology of tumors of the gastrointestinal tract. International studies
  5. Gastrointestinal diseases
    ANATOMICAL FEATURES OF THE GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT Features of the gastrointestinal tract determine the specifics of the clinical picture in pathological conditions. The oral cavity in the newborn is poorly developed, the mucous membrane is well vascularized, but relatively dry due to a small amount of saliva. The saliva of the newborn does not play a significant role in digestion, since it practically does not contain enzymes and
  6. Gastrointestinal tract
    More than half of pregnant women have an increase in appetite, weight gain can reach 400 g per week, and by the end of pregnancy is 12 kg. Such a change in the regulation of feelings of hunger and satiety provides increased needs of the mother's body for energy and plastic materials. Often there are taste perversions and whims associated with a change in the secretory function of the gastrointestinal tract.
  7. Gastrointestinal tract, kidneys and liver.
    Changes in the gastrointestinal tract during pregnancy are associated mainly with its anatomical displacement by an increasing uterus. The axis of the stomach changes its position from vertical to horizontal, which leads to an increase in intragastric pressure and a change in the angle of connection of the stomach with the esophagus. This in turn leads to relative insufficiency of the esophageal sphincter. If

    SURVEY ALGORITHM {foto29} Fig. 16. Algorithm for examination of the gastrointestinal tract. Examination of the gastrointestinal tract consists of examination, palpation, percussion and auscultation (Fig. 16). From the anamnesis we learn about the nature of food intake, diet, the dependence of pain on the time of eating, etc. The main manifestations are bitterness in the mouth, bad breath. Swallowing (free,
  10. Acute and chronic bleeding from the gastrointestinal tract
    There are many causes of gastrointestinal bleeding. Bleeding develops according to one of two primary mechanisms: 1. Violation of the integrity of the mucous membrane, leading to exposure of deep vessels, their erosion. For example, bleeding from a stomach ulcer, bleeding from the intestines during infectious or idiopathic processes, from the small and large intestines during ischemia. 2.
    Loss of juice in surgery plays a large role (vomiting, intestinal obstruction, fistula of the gastrointestinal canal, diarrhea, exudation, etc.). In this case, a wide variety of violations occur (Table 18). If a pathological loss of juice occurred before admission to the hospital and targeted treatment, then the violations are eliminated in accordance with the principles set out in the chapter “The therapeutic plan
  12. Digestion disorders in the gastrointestinal tract
    Protein digestion disorders can occur at the stage of gastric, intestinal, parietal digestion. In the stomach, peptide hydrolases cleave peptide bonds between aromatic and dicarboxylic amino acids. Protein digestion sharply slows down in hypoacid conditions, especially with achilia and total gastric resection (if the pH does not reach at least 5.0 units). Without
  13. Gastrointestinal nutrition and cancer
    Cancer of the transverse colon and rectum Many theories have been put forward about the role of nutrition in the development of colon cancer. The human diet includes a large number of substances with mutagenic and carcinogenic properties, as well as antagonists and blockers of these compounds. Therefore, it is very difficult to determine which of them has a damaging effect. Carcinogens that damage the upper sections
  14. Gastrointestinal Disorder Syndrome
    The leading symptom is loose stools (diarrhea). Etiology. The cause of the gastrointestinal tract upset syndrome in children is most often acute intestinal infections (AEI), AEI is a large group of diseases, the main clinical manifestations of which are loose stools, dyspeptic disorders, symptoms of intoxication and dehydration. Most acute respiratory infections in children have
