or premature labor. But the nerve endings that are appropriate to the abdominal organs and pelvis come from a single source, so the impact on the muscles of the uterus muscles is reflected in other organs. As a result of such exposure in the intestine begins to stagnate food, re-absorbed into the bloodstream from the intestines of some toxic products of metabolism. All this is a violation of the intestine in the form of constant constipation, bloating (flatulence) and general intoxication. In the second half of pregnancy to all these problems is joined congestion in the veins of the rectum and hemorrhoids, which are amplified against the backdrop of constipation.
The second process, which exacerbates all the problems with the gastrointestinal tract of a pregnant woman - a decrease in immunity. Immunity is reduced to the body does not "throw" the growing fetus as a foreign element. But at the same time, decreased immunity fraught with a variety of infections, including those of the gastrointestinal tract, "raises its head" and is actively developing opportunistic and pathogenic microflora growth which normally inhibits the normal intestinal microflora.

This bacteria not only multiply and close opportunistic pathogens, but also produce special substances (lactic and acetic acid) that change the acidity of the intestine, thereby to conditionally pathogenic extremely uncomfortable conditions (these bacteria like alkaline).

Establishing chair leads to the improvement of the rectum: in her veins is reduced congestion and thrombosis, and therefore diminish and the phenomenon of hemorrhoids.
