The Digestive System – Key to our Health
The intestine is our second brain.
We used to believe that the “smartest” multi-functional organ of our body is in our head. However, the brain is not the only organ to sets the rules of the game…. the gut offers healthy competition.
There are about 100 million nerve cells located in the gut and stomach – more than in the spinal cord!.
In the intestine, peptide proteins are formed that are directly related to the activity of the brain. The state of our physical and emotional health are closely connected to what is happening in our stomachs.
In this book, Professor Anatoly Kleyner introduces readers to modern knowledge on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of major diseases of the esophagus, stomach, intestines, liver, gallbladder and pancreas.
