The Digestive System: The Basis for Health of the Entire Body

The digestive system is made up of the gastrointestinal tract—also called the GI tract or digestive tract—and the liver, pancreas, and gallbladder. The GI tract is a series of hollow organs joined in a long, twisting tube from the mouth to the anus. The hollow organs that make up the GI tract are the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and anus. The liver, pancreas, and gallbladder are the solid organs of the digestive system. The digestive system is often called “the second brain” because it breaks nutrients down so that your body can absorb them and use them for energy, growth, and cell repair. Each part of the digestive system helps to move food and liquid through your GI tract. Your large intestine absorbs water, and the waste products of digestion become stool. Nerves and hormones help control the digestive process. Ayurveda recognizes that a dysfunction in the digestive system involves both digestion and assimilation of nutrients and, in this way, is the root cause of ill health. This virtual talk is presented by Dr. Somesh Kaushik on Crowdcast; registration with a valid email address is required.  Register herehttps://mahopaclibrary.assabetinteractive.com/calendar/the-digestive-system-the-basis-for-health-of-the-entire-body/

THE BOOK OF WILL SEPTEMBER 2022 9, 10, 16, 17, 18, 23, 24 By LAUREN GUNDERSON Directed by ANDREW KARL William Shakespeare’s been dead for three years. His friends and fellow actors miss him and his beautiful plays. When a pirated, badly botched Hamlet (“To be or not to be, there’s the point...”) plays on a nearby stage, they realize Shakespeare’s lines are disappearing into the forgetful memory of time. They need a book—a definitive copy of his original plays, but to make one, they have to battle an unscrupulous publisher, a boozy poet, and their own mortality. Lauren Gunderson’s look at Shakespeare’s First Folio is a lively, funny, poignant love letter to theatre and the printed word. Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
