Digestive System Stressors

Zyto Elite Series – Digestive System

Did you know the Gastrointestinal System is over 30 feet long and hosts over 500 different species of bacteria?! Its no wonder it plays such a huge role in our overall health and wellbeing!

digestive system stressors zyto elite boyds alternative health Hormones and nerves also play a role in digestion. Nerves are found throughout the walls of the GI tract, and they help regulate digestive juice production and the movement of food through the GI tract. Hormones are produced in the small intestine and stomach by way of the nervous and endocrine systems. These hormones regulate digestive juice production as well, but they also send signals to your brain—for instance, telling your brain when you are hungry or full. If the nerves and hormones are not functioning properly a person can have big digestion problems.

Since our gastrointestinal system has everything to do with food, it makes sense that eating the right kinds of foods in the right quantities at the right times is critical for digestive health and overall wellness. Diet habits that can improve gastrointestinal health include:

  • Eating fruits and vegetables
  • Getting enough fiber – 25 grams for women and 38 grams for men per day recommended fiber comes from fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, seeds, beans, and legumes
  • Staying hydrated – lots of fluids will help soften stool and will help it pass through the gastrointestinal system easier
  • Avoiding processed foods
  • Eliminating/reducing gluten – most people end up with inflammation in the GI tract because of gluten
  • Chewing food thoroughly – makes less work for the digestive system to break down what you have eaten
  • Eating when relaxed – People tend to eat faster or not chew enough when stressed or upset making the digestive system work harder and don’t forget the choking factor…
  • Adding probiotics – help with regulating bowel movements and healthy bacteria in your system

Stress Affects Digestive Health

Learning how to manage stress is important when it comes to digestive health, as an excess amount can either slow down or speed up your digestive system, and lead to other issues like acid reflux, ulcers, and IBS. Holding stress in the gut can lead to some less severe issues like cramps, bloating, diarrhea etc. We need to do activities that help us manage stress better like Yoga, deep breathing, Qi Gong, Journaling, and regular workouts. Quitting drinking and smoking will help the digestive system immensely as well.

What can the Zyto Elite Scan tell me?

The gastrointestinal system is one of the 4 core body systems the Zyto Elite Full Health Scan scans for, the other three being the immune system, endocrine/hormonal system, and detoxification system. There is also the Foods for Wellness Biosurvey, which scans for more than 450 foods and will tell you what foods you are having a positive response to or a negative Response to.

In addition to being scanned as a group, digital signatures representing items within the gastrointestinal system can also be scanned in our Zyto Elite software. This includes the all the organs of the digestive system and the items below that have a significant impact on digestive health:

  • Amino Acids
  • Antibiotics*
  • Bacteria (There is good and bad bacteria obviously you want the good bacteria)
  • Candida Albicans*
  • Digestive Enzymesfood circle graphic around stomach healthy diet concept boyds alternative health
  • Food Additives
  • Fungi/Molds*
  • Glyphosate*
  • Hydration
  • Inflammation*
  • Mental/Emotional Stress*
  • Minerals
  • Mycotoxins*
  • Parasites*
  • Probiotic Bacteria
  • Viruses*
  • Vitamins

If your GI tract has too much of these items (The ones with an asterisk are ones we don’t want in our system at all) that can cause issues in your digestive system.

Balancers such as nutritional products (Vitamins, Minerals, probiotics, etc.) and wellness services (exercises, Hydration, diets) are then typically scanned to bring these out-of-range items back into range.

Several product companies in the ZYTO library offer products that specifically support the gastrointestinal/digestive system. And of course, other items for which your body shows a preference may benefit the gastrointestinal system either directly or indirectly.
