Zone 4: The Digestive System

digestive system

It’s not the twilight zone – it’s the 4th Zone. How much do you know about your digestive system? Does it “talk” to you? 

Dr. Thurman Fleet taught the following – “there are only six kinds of disturbances that can affect the human body. These are GLANDULAR, ELIMINATIVE, NERVOUS, DIGESTIVE, MUSCULAR, and CIRCULATORY. All diseased conditions, aches and pains, and other discomforts experienced by the body can be attributed to one or more of the above disturbances to the body’s 6 systems or Zones

This month we will be focusing on the 4th Zone/System in the body: The Digestive System.

The digestive system consists of the mouth, esophagus, stomach, liver, gallbladder, pancreas and small and large intestines. When we think about the digestive system we typically think about how well we digest our food but a huge part of digestion is how well our body assimilates that food. Are we able to break down the food properly and get it to every cell in our body?

When we have an imbalance in the digestive system we may experience symptoms such as:

  • Food allergies
  • IBS
  • Heartburn/Acid Reflux
  • Bloating and Flatulence
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Vitamin deficiencies
  • Headaches/Migraines
  • Fatigue
  • Poor memory
  • Poor concentration

Along with getting your Digestive System checked and balanced by a Zone Certified Practitioner, another great way to create balance in this system is by addressing the emotion of anger. Is there something or someone that we are angry about or with? When we feel angry, our entire body tightens up including our digestive organs inhibiting the proper function of that system. Addressing what is causing us to be upset will create more ease and health in our bodies.
