Digestion Made Easy:
A Journey Through Your Amazing Digestive System

Written and Produced by Michael Klaper, MD

DVD $19.99
Available at Amazon or http://wwwdoctorklaper.com

Throughout his career Doctor Michael Klaper has journeyed to distant locales. A physician with training in surgery, anesthesiology, orthopedics and emergency medicine, Klaper studied medicine at the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Chicago, interned at Vancouver General Hospital in British Columbia, and took additional training in surgery, anesthesiology, orthopedics and obstetrics at the University of California Hospitals in San Francisco.

In Digestion Made Easy Dr. Klaper is asking viewers to join him in taking a different kind of journey, one that involves an intriguing voyage through the human digestive system that he refers to as "A Wonder of the Universe."

Digestion Made Easy His excursion begins in the human mouth, drops into the esophagus, proceeds to the stomach, liver, pancreas, and gall bladder before moving through both the small and large intestines. The tour winds its way to the rectum where it ends, not before delivering a visual explanation of hemorrhoids. Along the way in his numerous stops, Klaper explains, informs, and educates with a myriad of details about digestion.

Throughout the film the doctor emphasizes the positive role a whole foods, plant-based diet plays in the digestive process. "Healthy, delicious eating is easier and simpler than you think," says Klaper. "You want food as grown," he adds. "A potato chip is not a potato. A corn chip is not a corn." He recommends eating a salad every day. "Twice a day is even better," he advises.

Many viewers will probably be unfamiliar with chyme, the pulpy acidic fluid that passes from the stomach to the small intestine, consisting of gastric juices and partly digested food. Klaper pays special attention to chyme when he emphasizes consciously chewing food until it becomes almost liquid to aid digestion. A positive benefit of this intensive chewing is to cut down on the gas in the large intestine.

Klaper also focuses on ailments that occur when people eat a nutrient-poor diet that does not include enough fiber or water. He provides careful explanations of the causes of conditions like acid reflux, diverticulitis, appendicitis, and constipation and explains the role of diet in each of these ailments.

This film resulted from a lively lecture with numerous visuals that Klaper delivered to an audience in Tarzana, California.

Unbelievable as it may sound, in Digestion Made Easy Dr. Klaper has plunged into a complex subject and made it entertaining as well as informative. He brings to this narrative his more than 40 years of experience as a physician and expert on nutrition. In just slightly more than one hour the doctor turns what could be a mundane experience into a fascinating discourse on the functioning of the digestive process and its effects on human health.
