Identification of Digestive System and Colon Diseases
There are Multiple Colon Diseases and Digestive System Diseases
Which colon diseases should concern you? ...ALL OF THEM! Let's start with a description of the digestive system, and then we will look at the numerous diseases related to the colon and the digestive system.
The digestive system is a series of hollow organs joined in a long, twisting tube from the mouth to the anus. Inside this tube is a lining called the mucosa. In the mouth, stomach, and small intestine, the mucosa contains tiny glands that produce juices to help digest food.
Two solid organs, the liver and the pancreas, produce digestive juices that reach the intestine through small tubes. In addition, parts of other organ systems (for instance, nerves and blood) play a major role in the digestive system.
When we eat such things as bread, meat, and vegetables, they are not in a form that the body can use as nourishment. Our food and drink must be changed into smaller molecules of nutrients before they can be absorbed into the blood and carried to cells throughout the body. Digestion is the process by which food and drink are broken down into their smallest parts so that the body can use them to build and nourish cells and to provide energy.

Digestion involves the mixing of food, its movement through the digestive tract, and chemical breakdown of the large molecules of food into smaller molecules. Digestion begins in the mouth, when we chew and swallow, and is completed in the small intestine. The chemical process varies somewhat for different kinds of food.
Seems rather simple, right? Then why is it our digestive system is so prone to disease? It is simple, but it is not easy. We recommend that you examine alternatives that may help you. Exercise correctly and regularly, try to eat right, and use effective and properly-priced nutraceuticals to help.

Visit Your Doctor
If you are concerned about any of these digestive system or colon disorders, you should consult a physician. But what will happen when you do?
If you want to be able to ask intelligent questions of your physician regarding colon disease or if you want to better understand what she tells you, read books on your illness prior to visiting your doctor. Make a list of your questions to take with you. Maybe even take a book with you, but don't expect your doctor to read it. Mark a few pages to discuss with your doctor. Books can be both informative and invaluable when fighting diseases.
