It can easily be said that every organ and system in our body is made for and operates to find food and eat it, so that the whole machine can continue finding and eating food, so on and so forth. It is no real surprise, then, that the digestive tract is one of the most important and complex parts of the body and one that offers a lot of potential for discomfort when something goes wrong! From the nausea of a flu, food poisoning or motion sickness, to other such miserable symptoms as diarrhea, constipation, or even irritable bowel syndrome, an entire industry of digestive pharmaceuticals has sprouted to try to treat these woes. As with any pharmaceutical solution, however, comes the health risks and side effects from putting unnatural chemicals in your body. Thousands of years before the modern medical industry arose, however, natural doctors and herbalists found many healthy herbs that can treat these conditions without the serious drain on our liver and other vital organs.
