The digestive system contains over 400 strains of gut flora (bacteria). This is made up of both beneficial (good) and pathogenic (bad) flora. Normally they both live within the gut with the more beneficial bacteria in abundance. The good bacteria keep the gut walls healthy and help break down food, enhance the immune system and create the right conditions to produce good bowel movements.
Problems arise when this delicate balance is upset and this may be caused by such things as stress, poor diet, alcohol, antibiotic use or the contraceptive pill. This may cause you to experience diarrhoea, excess wind, cramping, constipation, bad breath and a host of other problems.
