Naturally Improve Your Digestive System-2

  1. Clear your bowels occasionally

We clean our body by showering, but often forget that the insides need a cleansing too sometimes. An enema is an ideal solution for internal cleansing of the bowels. It softens and breaks down any leftover refuse in our guts, then flushes it out. The results are better functioning digestive system and liver, so clearing out these toxins will improve your general feeling as well.

  1. Drink ginger or chamomile tea

On top of its calming properties, chamomile tea also aids the digestion process and can help with nausea, stomachaches, and digestive cramps. Drink a cup a day, and you’ll feel the change. If you’re not partial to chamomile, make a ginger infusion instead – but be sure to use fresh ginger root.

  1. Massage your stomach after you eat

Many alternative healers suggest massaging your stomach for 2-5 minutes after every meal to aid in digestion. To do that, place your palm on the top of your stomach and move it in a clockwise direction. If you don’t feel like doing it after every meal, doing it once in the evening is also helpful.

  1. Support your liver functions

One of the liver’s main functions is producing bile, which helps break down fats in a process that helps the absorption of vitamins A, D, E, K. Insufficient amounts of bile can lead to harder-working digestive system that in turn, causes lethargy, particularly after eating fatty foods. To support your liver, eat beets, artichoke, proteins, and liver.

  1. Eat a healthy breakfast

It’s not called “the most important meal of the day” for nothing. A good breakfast kickstarts your metabolism and keeps it working well throughout the day. Even if you’re not hungry, remember that you’re doing yourself a service when you eat, and if you add some yoghurt, you benefit twice.

  1. Sit correctly on the toilet

Did you know that your posture when you’re on the toilet actually affects your digestive system? New research found that the best way to move our bowels is by squatting, not sitting. When we sit, we apply pressure to the rectum, similarly to bending a garden hose, obstructing the healthy flow. When you squat, however, your rectum is loose and straight, making it easier to have a movement. So use a small stool when you make your own, to have an easier and healthier time when on the bowl.

  1. Drink water, but not during a meal

It’s important to drink at least 8 cups of water a day to keep the digestion running smoothly, but nutritionists recommend not drinking during the meal. Some foods make us thirsty, and in these cases, you should take small sips rather than large gulps. Another recommendation is to drink room-temperature water, since cold water slows the digestion process down.

  1. Avoid eating when stressed or active

Eating when you’re stressed or in a rush is a sure way to get indigestion. When you eat calmly, your body activates the parasympathetic system, which digestion is part of. In stressful times or during physical activities, the body uses the sympathetic system, taking away energy from the digestive processes. This is why people feel nauseated during stressful times or after running.
