The field of gastroenterology is a medical field that specializes in the digestive systems and its conditions. The gastrointestinal tract is made up of many organs along the alimentary canal such as the oesophagus stomach, intestines and colon. As the digestive system processes the food that we eat, it is important to keep it healthy so that you are able to properly digest and absorb nutrients from your diet. However, it is also one of the most vulnerable systems as it could be directly affected by what you eat.
