Tina and the body
The digestive system breaks down nutrients into simpler chemicals.
The body uses these chemicals for energy and to build and
repair cells and tissues. Tina slows down or stops the movement
of the digestive tract, which in turn slows the breakdown
of food and nutrients. This can also allow toxins to be absorbed
and build-up in the digestive system. Irregular bowel movements
and an overall disruption of the digestive ‘gut flora’
are also likely. Tina causes appetite and thirst to decrease.
