A fairly large part of human race suffers from indigestion. It is partly dueto wrong eating habits and partly because of a sedentary lifestyle. Thereis however a third component which is fundamental to it, and allowswrong eating habits and inactive life to act faster in bringing aboutindigestion.That third component is the astrological cause.
What is indigestion?
Once we push the food down through our esophagus, it reaches thestomach, which performs three tasks. Firstly it is a storage space for whatwe ate, and secondly it mixes up the food we ate with digestive juices andhydrochloric acid produced by the stomach.The lower part of the stomach combines the ingested food with thisdigestive cocktail by its muscle action. This primes the food to be brokendown into smaller molecules which can be absorbed by the small intestineand used as nourishment. The third task of the stomach is to empty itscontents slowly into the small intestine.The small intestine contains a layer of muscle that enables the wall tomove in a an ocean wave like movement. The wall contracts at one pointand pushes the food forward. It then contracts again a little further onand repeats the process. This is called peristalsis. This movement of organ walls propels food and liquid through the system and also mixes itup with digestive enzymes from glands that empty directly into theintestine.Two solid organs the liver and the pancreas also produce digestive juicesthat help in the absorption of the food. Liver produces a substance calledbile which it stores in the gall bladder and pumps it into the intestineswhen needed. Bile acts somewhat like detergent and dissolves the fat inthe food in to a liquid. This liquid is then digested by the pancreatic juicesand enzymes in the small intestine.Food travels through the small intestine and all its nutrients are graduallyabsorbed by our body. The waste matter then empties into the largeintestine from where it is ejected periodically as fecal matter.When the activities connected to the stomach, the small and largeintestine are interrupted, or when the liver and pancreas work at lessthan full capacity, indigestion results.
