Digestive Disorders: Diseases, Allergies, Intolerances & Syndromes

5 February 2020

Hi all, I hope this finds you in good health and vitality. 

Today Health Bunker will give a quick overview of common digestive problems. This will be the first in a series of Health Bunker articles about the gut. Digestive system disorders affect millions of people around the world, about 70m in the U.S. alone. 

Common digestive problems include Heartburn, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), Candida Overgrowth, Celiac Disease.

These digestive system disorders go on to cause, gas, stomach/abdominal pain, stomach cramps, severe bloating, diarrhea, colon cancer, mental issues and a lot more.

Adverts telling us that prescription medications, over the counter antacid drugs all promise to end our digestive disorders. (see antacid article here), but do they really work long term?

What’s causing the modern boom in autoimmune digestive diseases?

Digestive System Disorders and the Gut Microbiome

Humans cannot function without food, and the nutrients we get from food. We are also meant to get ‘beneficial bacteria’  from our food too. Nutrient levels are now at an all-time low in foods, simply because of over-farmed land with reduced mineral content, industrialized farming techniques that use fertilizers, pesticides and GMO crops all reduce nutrient values.

Farm animals eat these crops too, they also become nutrient deficient. These animals are given pharmaceutical drugs like wormers, steroids, growth hormones and antibiotics. We then eat the crops, meat or fish, taking in all of the residual chemical substances and lack of nutrients. These techniques also reduce beneficial bacteria levels.

Modern treatment in farm animals and humans of Antibiotics, kill beneficial bacteria and can cause problems to all or parts of the digestive tract. The killing off of the very stuff our digestive systems need to function will cause an overgrowth of bad bacteria and fungus-like Candida Albicans in the GI Tract. Candida will then create a domino effect causing many other medical conditions. 

We are all biological juicers. A healthy gut helps us digest and absorb our nutrients. An unhealthy gut microbiome makes us ill eventually.

We will write a full article about the Gut Microbiome.

Digestive System Disorders

Lyme disease causes digestive system disorders like gluten and dairy allergies. Here’s a list small list of some disorders that affect the digestive system.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS): Affects the large intestine. Signs and symptoms include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea or constipation, or both. 

SIBO: pain in the stomach, especially after eating, bloating, cramps, diarrhea, constipation, indigestion, a regular feeling of fullness, gas.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD): Abdominal cramps and pain, diarrhea that may be bloody, severe urgency to have a bowel movement, fever, weight loss, loss of appetite, iron deficiency anemia due to blood loss.

What if digestive system disorders are all caused by a ‘Parasite Infestation’? My wife and I had parasite tests and they all came back free from parasites. So when we started a parasite detox, we didn’t expect to find anything unusual. Then, these creatures started leaving our bodies in their hundreds. 

It looked like Jurassic Park down the loo!

A chap who we’ve been helping took his little ‘intestinal pets’ to the Dr in a couple of test tubes. The Dr told him they were just mucous membranes.

No Dr they are parasites.

There is no diagnosis or treatment on the NHS, they don’t recognize parasites, parasite cysts or parasite mucus as an issue. It’s not just the NHS, they don’t show up in independent tests either. Parasites only appear when the detox process is started. We’ve seen literally 1000s over a two year period, and not just in us but in everyone who starts the detox. The symptoms that parasites cause can be terrible. But that’s for a whole series of articles.

Parasite definition: “an organism that lives in or on an organism of another species (its host) and benefits by deriving nutrients at the other’s expense.”

In our experience, most gut disorders have some form of parasite connection.

Eat Well. Be Well.
