Chronic Unintentional Dehydration
The human body is mostly composed of water; 75% of every human being is water. 65%-85% of every cell’s physical structure is water. Our blood also is major water; our brain cells are also composed of water largely. Water happens to be the most important component of the human body. The human digestive system demands lots and lots of water for healthy functioning; water is needed for processing the foods and then eliminating the fecal wastes for the body. Chronic unintentional dehydration is definitely one of the major causes of many health complications including constipation and several other malfunctions taking place in our body. Nothing in our body can possibly happen without water and therefore it needs to be supplied with an ample amount of water as well to maintain a balance.
Micro-nutrient deficiencies specifically
Nutrients can be divided into two broad categories; macronutrients and micronutrients. Macronutrients are basically proteins, fats, carbohydrates and fiber and micronutrients are vitamins, enzymes, minerals, trace minerals, essential fatty acids, amino acids, antioxidants, phytonutrients and certain pigments, such as chlorophyll. Macronutrients are mostly present in our regular diet; some people even tend to eat too much of everything, including proteins, fats, carbohydrates etc. Americans are not really deficient in macronutrients, but the people in the Third world countries are. However, this is not much of a problem. The problem arises when the body starts lacking the micronutrients, and macronutrient deficiency also leads to deficiencies in micronutrients. It has been observed that this deficiency can give birth to several degenerative diseases as well.
Intestinal bacteria imbalance
Bacteria are usually beneficial for our lives and for humans it is particularly effective. Almost 90% of the bacteria are friendly. Bifidus and acidophilus are the two most common intestinal bacteria which are beneficial for our health. Beneficial bacteria are also known as probiotics. Intestinal dysbiosis is a term that refers to intestinal bacteria imbalance, which is often referred to as intestinal microflora. When there is an imbalance in the intestinal bacteria, it leads to several digestive disorders and is one of the most probable reasons
Digestive disorders are triggered by irregular heartburn, which can normally be seen in every household. A study has recently revealed that more than 30% of America’s populace suffers from indigestion at least once a month if not more.
During the year 2013-14, approximately 750,555 people were hospitalized with complaints about acid reflux and some other esophageal complications. Statistics, however, does not have any information about the amount of money being spent each year for the treatment of such disorders. The reason behind this can probably be the laziness of people in seeing doctors and getting a thorough check-up. Also, most of us prefer to take contradictory medicines and we often self treat ourselves for the worst.
