Digestive tract compensation calculator:
Digestive Tract damage:
Disorders affecting the digestive organs vary from loss of bowel function and recurring stomach disorders to debilitating stomach ache and loss of the bowel. A doctor will investigate the following when diagnosing an injury:
The digestive system allows the body to break down the food, the job of the digestive system is to do this in a way that the food can be absorbed and used or excreted.
The digestive system is also the process by which the body breaks down food into smaller components that can be absorbed by the blood stream.
The digestion of food is usually divided into mechanical processing to reduce the size of food particles and chemical action to further reduce the size of particles and prepare them for absorption.
