Digestive problems like IBS, constipation, heartburn, and acid reflux all begin with what we put in our mouth. Our diet can have a massive effect on our gut health, but sometimes the right diet alone does not solve the problem. Here are a few simple natural remedies to help you get through your digestive troubles:
Apart from being a relaxing drink after a long, hard day, certain teas can also help soothe your stomach
Often referred to as the stomach tonic, ginger tea can help with unsettled bowels, stomach cramps, and nausea.
Chamomile is a very relaxing tea, and can take care of things like gas, bloating, cramping, diarrhea, and constipation.
This is a great option for resolving heartburn and control gas.
Aloe vera juice is a good source of many vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients which go a long way in terms of treating stomach and digestive problems.
Aloe vera is a great way to prevent heartburn and treat acid reflux, as it forms a thin protective layer on the esophagus wall. It is advised that you drink a glass in the morning before breakfast, and in the evening just before heading to bed.
These are tiny microorganisms that live in the digestive tract, and are referred to as “good bacteria”. Many digestive issues tend to kill some of these probiotics, opening the door to infections and other health issues. It is important to replace these probiotics by eating foods like yogurt, kefir, cottage cheese, aged cheeses, miso, wheat grass, and spirulina.
Papaya and Pineapple Fruit Enzymes:
Papaya contains enzymes called papain and chymonpapain, which are both great digestive aids. They help cleanse the digestive tract, which in turn helps fight issues bloating, flatulence, nausea, and cramps.
The important enzyme in pineapple is called bromelaine, which can help break down protein in the other food we eat. This makes it easier for our body to digest our food, and leaves us with less digestive problems.
