If you find yourself suffering from constipation, gas, bloating, diarrhea - try a few simple changes in your habits and you may find a remarkable difference.
Limit drinking with meals: drinking dilutes stomach acid and stomach acid helps digest your food. Best not to drink during meals at all - drink 30 minutes before and 1 hour after.
Chew well: the more you chew, the more stomach acid and digestive enzymes are released
Relax: being relaxed puts you in a parasympathetic mode which opens the digestive gland ports allowing the digestive enzymes to flow. The sympathetic stress mode closes all these ports and no enzymes are released. Plays a major role.
Don't overeat: eat until you are full and stop. An overfull and stretched stomach causes weakness in the stomach ligaments which cause reflux of food back up into your esophagus - and this leads to heartburn.
Chew gum after meals: this will help produce more stomach acid and help you relax thereby opening the digestive sphincters. Pick xylitol gum - it helps prevent cavities - proven in research.
Don't work and eat: just eat when eating. Mixing tasks doesn't alert your digestive system that food is coming. Smell, sight, and touch all stimulate the digestive glands and if you're busily reading a newspaper or driving down the road, your digestive system won't expect food coming - and then won't digest it. I'm serious here.
Combining all those steps above - and even just a few of them - ought to improve your digestive abilities. This day and age, stress is rampant and so is work but aim to put your health first.
Tell your friends about this. They will appreciate it.
