Gastrointestinal disorders are very often caused by irritants, toxins and pathogens. When the stomach or intestines are disturbed by such toxins and irritants, this can cause the digestive tract to malfunction. This can then lead to unpleasant symptoms such as diarrhoea, nausea, flatulence, stomach discomfort, heartburn, vomiting and reflux.
