This is truly dreadful news for a foodie and healthie such as I. In my world,
food - eating/savoring, sharing, even preparing meals, are great sources of joy.
Most of us love coming together around food and celebrate many occasions 'breaking bread' with one another. However, for some, eating proposes a whole slew of issues from chronic digestive disrupt and heartburn, various side effects including inflammation due to allergies and food intolerances as well as invasive IBS challenges that cultivate constant pain and anxiety.
Read on and discover how you can overcome your chronic gut related challenges without relying on medications.
If you're suffering from indigestion, rather than relying on prescriptions with their myriad of side effects, begin to heal your gut health by sourcing out the causes of the condition. While this does take effort and patience, the payoff is feeling and looking better and increasing your overall health.
When it comes to digestive disrupt and conditions like GERD, most people are lead to believe their stomach is too acidic and given treatments for this. The crux is, your gut environment needs to be this way. Digestion happens in an acidic environment. Rather than interfere with acid levels with the common prescriptive drugs, natural digestive support is suggested.
There are many options to consider such as enjoying a thin slice of ginger or a ginger or fennel tea 15 minutes before meals, peppermint or chamomile tea afterwards. You can further augment digestion by improving your gut environment with fermented foods and the digestive supplement Betaine with HCl.
These helpful aids can help to improve your digestive health, overcome heartburn and better access the nutrients. Digestive enzymes may be needed as well. Also consider, food choices and your eating environment may be a cause of contention. Be sure to eat whole foods, minimally processed and enjoy your meals in a calm environment. Ideally eating slowly and with gratitude. You want your para-sympathetic system working for you with the rest and digest mode turned on.
