Digestive

Your digestive system is a well-oiled machine, but with so many moving parts, it’s prone to disruption. Autoimmune disorders like crohn’s disease and irritable bowel syndrome can wreak havoc on your body, and your happiness. Other disorders, like long-term acid reflux can heighten your risk for certain cancers. And drugs for myriad conditions pass through your esophagus, stomach, intestines and colon, often stimulating nausea or diarrhea. 

MedShadow’s coverage focuses on what to do when drugs and supplements lead to digestive side effects and how to live more comfortably, with only those medications you truly need.
