You have abdominal pain and discomfort? Do you suffer from chronic diarrhea or constipation?
There are many potential reasons for these digestive problems and treatments vary depending on the underlying cause.
Thankfully, there are many ways for you to get rid of these problems and at the same time improve your digestive system.
Here are some solutions for you
1. Eat small meals throughout the day
Eating large meals can overload the digestive system. To avoid this problem, eat smaller meals throughout the day.
2. Drink peppermint tea
Peppermint tea relaxes the bowel, reducing spasms in the bowels and relieves gas.
3. Eat probiotic yogurt
Your bowels are home for the good bacteria, probiotics. Some people who suffer from digestive problems cannot produce enough natural probiotics. This is the reason why you should eat yogurt and other foods rich in probiotics, such as sauerkraut.
4. Sip warm water
Sipping warm water the first thing in the morning could promote good digestion. You can also drink warm water thirty minutes before meal. This will clean your digestive system and you can easily digest your food.
5. Lemon water
This is especially beneficial for people who can’t sip warm water in the morning. Squeeze a lemon in one glass of water and drink it on an empty stomach. This is another way to cleanse your stomach and digestive tract.
You can practice self-massage or could do stomach exercise. You can use essential oils to massage your stomach. It is recommended that for any type of stomach exercise, consult an expert. And if you are using any essential oil, get it only after an expert consultation.
7. Exercise regularly
Exercising regularly has many health benefits including good digestion. Work out also enhances metabolism and improves our blood flow. This is an ideal way to maintain right body weight.
