Digestive System?

Basically, there was once a time when I was extremely obsessed with losing weight. I started using laxatives cause I constantly heard how it's so effective and it helps lose weight, and since I was desperate, I would've tried anything that garuanteed it. Now, till this day, my body still didn't regulate itself fully. I still have constipation here and there, even though I do have a normal amount of fiber. Has this ever happened to anyone? And if yes, what did you do? Do you know what I can do to harmlessly get my digestive system to start working properly again?

It can take a long long time for your body to get used to not taking all those laxatives. Everyone has a little constipation here and there, it just means you weren't getting enough water. Take good multivitamins and if you want go to the doctor.  (+ info)

How do the circulatory system, respiratory system and digestive system function together and how do they meet?

how do the circulatory system, respiratory system and digestive system function together and how do they meet in the body?

I would really like to know the answer to this question. I have checked myself and have yet to discover a detailed answer.

thank you very much.

Whoa....rather a complex question that requires an extensive answer to be complete and detailed. Even with my pretty good knowledge of anatomy I can't do it typing from memory.

Let me refer you to my anatomy bible. It is the classic 1918 Anatomy of the Human Body by Bartleby. Even haven been written in 1918....it is still accurate. The human body hasn't changed.


If the information you need isn't here...it doesn't exist.  (+ info)

What is the best way to regulate your digestive system?

My digestive system is irregular and I've tried benefiber and other fiber supplements and it helps, but it doesn't completely regulate it. Is there any other way I can completely regulate my irregular digestive system?

Some rules I try to follow:
Try to avoid doing shiftwork. It's much easier to keep your digestive system regular if you work a 9-5 job - if you have a regular routine your body will too.
Don't eat later than 6pm (or at least 3 hours before bedtime), so as to ensure you don't go to bed on a full stomach.
Eat fiber for breakfast, but never mix carbs and protein. Your body digests carbs well, it also digests protein well but for some reason it is less efficient at digesting them both together. Look at 'The Hay Diet' (Google it). It really helps me!
You must drink enough water. At least 2L a day.
Try to avoid caffeine, especially in the afternoon/evening.
Try to get some exercise.  (+ info)

What does eating Activia Yogurt regulate our digestive system?

What is the difference between regular yogurt and Activia Yogurt? Also, how does yogurt regulate our digestive system? Yogurt is just milk, how does it help our body more than milk?
Also, is Activa pasteurized or unpasteurized?

yogurt has bacteria in it that milk doesn't have. these bacteria help improve digestion. Activia has more of these bacteria than other yogurts, which makes it better for digestion.  (+ info)

Is the digestive system messed up after a tonsillectomy?

I had a tonsillectomy 2 weeks ago, yesterday. And for the past three days my digestive system has been really messy and all over the place. I started eating more solid foods about 5 days ago and it was all okay, I just had some diarrhea. Now I have serious stomach problems every couple of hours, serious lower stomach cramps and i'm barely eating anything. Please answer if this is normal or if you have any idea what this could be.

i ate soft foods for about three days. after that, i was o.k.  (+ info)

How do you regulate your digestive system?

I have a really big bloated tummy and somewhat unhealthy bowels. Is my digestive system the problem, and if so what can I do to make it healthier/get a not bloated tummy!!

It sounds like your digestive system is the problem.
Try adjusting your diet. Add fiber to help regulate things - it will help with the bloating and the bowels. Fibersure works well, and you can mix it into anything - it has no taste.
Try to eat a nice healthy diet, if you don't already. Also try yogurt - the cultures help regulate your system, too. They make a yougurt now specifically for that purpose.
If you don't see improvement in a week or so, see a doctor to make sure there is nothing else that is wrong.  (+ info)

What are some ways that you can keep your digestive system healthy?

Me and a friend are doing a project for health class and we want to know some ways to keep the digestive system healthy. Thanks and there will be a best answer given out.

stick to fibre rich foods and do simple exercises like yoga and pilates poses that target the tummy area..im serious,they help to improve the blood circulation..and yes,each individual has to identify & keep track of foods that benefit their digestive system and those that dont.4 example, fruits like prunes may trigger diaorrhea for some people, so they should either minimize the intake of this fruit or completely avoid it..drink lots of plain water too as it will help the intestines absorb nutrients betterand detox themselves simultaneously..  (+ info)
