DIGESTIVE ORGANS
The digestive organs are divided into several parts i.e: the mouth, the oesophagus, liver, stomach, pancreas, gall bladder, large and small intestine and the rectum. All of these play a role in digesting food to a finer state to be absorbed and used by the body to build new tissues, repair damaged tissues and produce energy for everyday use. Generally these digestive organs function to digest and absorb food. The mouth consists of the teeth, tongue and lips. The mouth, as a general, digests big sized food into smaller chunks. The meshed food is then mixed with the saliva to soften, moisten and ease the movement of the food in the mouth and oesophagus. The oesophagus is situated behind the throat. Generally the oesophagus carries the digested food from the mouth to the stomach.

●DIGESTIVE ORGANS ●

The J-shaped stomach is situated in the middle of the abdomen. It functions to integrate the food together with the gastric juice and storing it before it moves to the small intestine. The germs are destroyed and eliminated with secretion of HCI acid. The liver lies on the top right hand side of the abdomen. It is quite big weighing around 1.4kg.It functions to control the glucose level in the blood, stores vitamins like A,B 12,D,E and K and also process medicines and hormones. The pancreas is a gland that exists in the abdomen area apart from the adrenal gland. It functions to reduce sugar content in the blood and to secrete insuline hormones. The small intestine measures about 6.5 metres in an adult and it functions to absorb more than 90% food, digested carbohydrate, protein, lipid and carry the food surplus to the large intestine. The large intestine is the last organ in the digestive system. It also functions as a water, ion and vitamin absorbent. It produces the vitamins B and K by bacteria in the intestine. The large intestine produces faeces and eliminates it through the rectum.

Structure
1) Line P5 SP 2) Line P5 SM-A 3) Line P5 RA 4) Line P6 SA 5) Point SA 4 6) Ring MR 11

Organ
-Small intestine -Pancreas -Large intestine -Oesophagus, diaphragm -Small muscles and tongue -Rectum and urinary bladder

Problem
- Wind -Hypoglycemia (lack of sugar) -Constipation -Nausea -Tonsil -Hard faeces

STRUCTURES INVOLVED
There are six magnetic structures controlling the infant’s and children’s digestive system. These structures are P5 SP, P5 SM-A, P5 RA and P6 SA lines, point SA 4 and the GM11 ring. Location of these structures can be seen in figure 3.1. a) Line P5 SP : Situated in the centre of the abdomen. This line represents organs like the small intestine and stomach. This line existed mainly due to constipation, flatulence (wind) and indigestion.

b) Line P5 SM-A : Situated next to the P5 SP line. This line represents the pancreas which functions to guard the glucose level in blood. c) Line P5 RA : Situated in the centre of the stomach. The line represents the ascending large intestine (left side) and descending large intestine (right side). d) Line P6 SA : Situated in the centre of the chest area. Generally it controls the oesophagus and diaphragm activities. e) Point SA 4 : This point is situated under the chin. It controls the small muscles and the tongue. f) Ring MR 11 : Situated under the navel and represents the rectum and urinary bladder.
