system parts, understanding the digestive process will always be
difficult. So an important step in each of these advanced cleans-
ing programs is learning where your organs reside in your body.
To that extent, How Health Works has commissioned one of
America’s best anatomical artists, Dr. Nina Ollikainen, MD,
to draw what are among the clearest drawings of the human
digestion system I have seen. You will find that by viewing her
custom, exclusive-to-HHWorks drawings, you will quickly
memorize the location of the important digestive organs.

I find the best way to learn organ location is to simply look                                                                       Stomach

How It All Works
Mouth to Stomach:
You swallow food. It travels down the esophagus and
lands in the stomach, a tough muscular, mucus-layered sac
that is the only place in your body that can withstand the acids
that are secreted there. Those acids are so powerful that if they
were to end up anywhere else, they’d burn tissue (if you’ve ever
burped some up, and felt the effects on your throat, you know
how powerful it is). In the stomach, food is broken down into
a liquid called chyme (pronounced “kime” and rhymes with
time). At the bottom of the stomach is a special
valve that keeps everything in the stomach until        Duodenum
it’s been turned into chyme; once that valve opens
up, it allows a spurt of chyme to go into the start of the small
intestines, and then the valve closes again.                 Common Bile

teria in a healthy gut, all designed to promote nutrient produc-
tion and assimilation, maintain a pH (acid-alkaline) balance,
and to prevent proliferation of harmful bacteria.
Probably the most fascinating part of the small intestines is
its connection—directly—to blood. Tens of thousands of tiny
blood vessels connect with its outer layers, where the transfusion
of nutrients from the chyme get transferred to the blood. This is
why fats, minerals, enzymes, and vitamins pulled and manufac-
tured from the chyme get placed into our blood stream, which
then travels to every part of the every cell of the body.
Once chyme reaches the end of the small intestines, there is
another tight muscle valve that controls the opening into the
large intestines—again, located just inside of the area of your
right hip bone. The main function of the large intestines is to
reabsorb water and minerals.
As you start to see, each of these steps is dependent on the other
steps. If one of them can’t do its job, then other parts don’t work.
Food is not broken down into small enough compounds, and
therefore gets pushed down the digestive tract in a form that the
body can’t really use. It can’t get at the vitamins, or the miner-
als; the fats aren’t broken down, so they end up coating other

For Fun

In his mid-twenties, shortly after reading Nutrition and Physical Degeneration,
by Dr. Weston Price, Scott took off on a trip around the world that lasted
just short of three years. From 1979–1982, he hitch hiked a few months
through eastern Europe, a year through Africa, sailed for four months on
a 41-foot sloop off the coast of Madagascar, and then six months living in
Australia. He did a similar seven-month voyage again in 1996, this time
with his wife, Gael, going back and visiting many of the friends he had
