If you’ve ever felt a grumbling tummy, burning sensation, or other form of discomfort in your upper abdomen, you’re probably dealing with indigestion. From upset stomach to heartburn, and diarrhea to constipation, signs of an unhealthy digestive tract can turn any good day into a bad one. Fortunately, you can make some lifestyle changes that will tremendously change the condition of your gut health. Here are 3 helpful ways you can promote healthy digestion:
Eat Fibrous Foods
Dietary fiber is absolutely essential to the proper functionality of your digestive tract. Fiber is the fuel that the colon uses to keep it in good condition. It is critical to keep the digestive tract flowing and bowel movements regulated to avoid complications. There are 2 types of fiber, insoluble and soluble. Insoluble fiber does not break down while passing through the body, and soluble fiber absorbs water and helps add bulk to your stool.
Insoluble fiber is great for clearing out your digestive tract and promotes the movement of material so those who struggle with constipation can greatly benefit from it. Examples of insoluble fiber include whole grain foods like brown rice and wheat bran, celery, cucumbers, beans, nuts and seeds.
Soluble fiber is known for nourishing the gut flora in your large intestines. Sources of soluble fibers include avocados, brussel sprouts, broccoli, pears, carrots, apples, and more! Most people do not reach the recommended daily amounts of fiber each day, which contributes to a huge population of people dealing with irritable bowel syndrome. Be mindful about the foods you eat each day, and load up on powerful nutrients to maintain healthy digestion and overall wellness.
Manage Stress Triggers
Another way to promote healthy digestion is to manage stress triggers that affect you on a regular basis. Stress is the main culprit of inflammation, and sends your body through a whirlwind of experiences every time you go into flight-or-fight mode. Research shows that your mind and gut are connected in ways that impact your digestion. These instances trigger your body to think it doesn’t have time to rest and digest, absorb nutrients, secrete digestive juice, and more. Because of this strong brain-gut connection, stress, anxiety, sadness, depression, fear, and anger can all affect the gastrointestinal system.
If you find yourself dealing with these negative emotions, search for alternative solutions such as yoga, mindfulness, meditation, and other holistic practices that help you wind down, and take control over your thoughts. It’s important to turn them into positive emotions as best as you can.
