Digestive System
Celiac Disease
Cannot digest gluten properly
Villi line small intestine and absorb nutrients from food into blood stream
Immune system reacts to gluten by attacking the villi
Genetic, but can be triggered by certain things like pregnancy and childbirth
How to keep your digestive system healthy

Staying active increasing your metabolism witch aids in effectively moving your food through your body so that you absorb essential nutrition efficiently and effectively
Exercise also strengthens your abdomen muscles witch aids in the motion of the large intestine (peristalsis) so the nutrition in your food is absorbed properly
Some herbs such as ginger, fennel, and peppermint are well known to promote good digestion and keep the gastrointestinal tract active and moving effectively.
Digestion begins in mouth, finishes in small intestine
Mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine (colon), rectum, anus
Liver and pancreas, produce digestive juices -> go to intestine through small tubes (ducts)
Gallbladder stores digestive juices until needed
Peristalsis - muscle movements that propel food through the organs
Purpose of digestion: food and drink -> smaller molecules (body can use them better to produce energy)
Digested nutrients absorbed by villi in small intestine
Waste products - undigested parts of the food (fiber), older cells shed from the mucosa.
Waste products wait in the colon until expelled by bowel movement
