Keep Your Digestive System Healthy

The digestive system plays a big role in keeping us in good shape. While abdominal pain is very common, we should not take acute or chronic abdominal pain for granted. I am speaking based on personal experience when I never though a simple abdominal pain could be serious. I've written an article about that and if you want to know more and learn from my abdominal pain experience, just click on this link.

Healthy Meals for the Gut

Today, we celebrate the World Digestive Health Day. It is observed to raise awareness on health-related issues pertaining to digestive system or gut. Did you know that the bacteria in our stomach affects all aspects of health - immunity, disease and even stress.

Our gut acts as a "Second Brain" that is responsible for balancing our mood, reducing stress and anxiety, and keeping our overall mental health. Do you experience bloatedness and constipation lately? 

The present health crisis caused by corona virus or Covid-19 caused stress to many of us. In the beginning of community quarantine, I had episodes of stomach discomfort, diarrhea and even constipation. My hyperacidity strike back probably due to stress. With healthy lifestyle, I was able to get back on my feet and realized that stress is not helping me at all.

Home remedy for Constipation

As mentioned earlier, I had constipation so I tried to maintain routine exercises. With quarantine in place, some of us have sedentary lifestyle and irregular sleep patterns watching TV series and movies late at night.

Fruits and Vegetables

To fight constipation, make sure to drink enough water and include fruits and vegetables in your diet. Limit intake of processed foods and consume more whole food. I already bought over-the-counter medication since we're not going out of the house very often.

Digestive self-care also means getting treatment as soon as your body starts sending signals of discomfort. There are laxatives that does not harm the digestive system.
