If they remain schackled, they can't do their job.

Symptoms of 'Digestion Gone Bad' can include constipation, diarrhoea, excess wind, bloating, cramps, fatigue, amongst others. While they might not solve all of these, starting off with the tips above can really help out. If you've any comments, do visit me on my Facebook page, or Twitter.
