10 Ways to Relieve Digestive Problems Naturally
• Stay hydrated
We should consume at least 70 ounces (for women) and 100 ounces (for men) water every day. Water maintains the flow of things inside the body, prevents constipation, and decreases inflammation. Intake of carbonated beverages and alcohol increases the risk of dehydration.
• Eat more fruit
We should eat more fruit every day as they contain natural sugars that help stimulate digestion. Seasonal fruits should be eaten often as these fruits contain elements which are necessary to stay fit that season. Apples are good for constipation. Grapes and oranges are good remedies for diarrhea. You can also have a glass of 100% fruit juice.
• Stop smoking
Smoking and being around smoke should be avoided right after a meal. Smoking creates excess air in the stomach and irritates the digestive tract. It also creates excess acid which is bad for your health.
Go for a walk after each meal, even a short one. This will help keep your digestive system fit and it also improves digestive function.
Moving your body or doing any kind of activity or exercise aids digestion and helps to relieve constipation. Working on a mini-trampoline is any easy way to enhance digestion.
• Add more fiber to your diet
Fiber helps regulate diarrhea and constipation. Soluble fiber is considered quite effective.
Don’t take on too much stress. If you are stressed you should try to de-stress yourself, yoga and meditation can be very beneficial . Make sure you get enough sleep.
• Drink green tea
Green tea contains antioxidant polyphenols which aid digestion. It also contains anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and cancer-fighting properties. If you want to shed some weight, this is a great choice.
• Change your eating habits
This is the most important element we can change. Food should be properly and thoroughly chewed. Don’t overeat or eat improperly cooked food. This can result in many digestive problems including stomach ache.
• Instant remedies
If you have major problems then try these remedies:
Drink a few ounces of pickle juice or apple cider vinegar
Drink some cinnamon tea or chew on a piece of cinnamon bark after each meal
Drink a cup of ginger or peppermint tea after each meal
Have triphala powder with water
