Good Gut Health
Our modern lives don’t leave much time (or energy) for cooking wholesome meals from scratch and many of us may find ourselves eating in less and less healthy ways. Too much sugar, high fat meals and less fruits and veggies impact our digestive systems. Whether it’s because we’re eating the ends of the toasts of our toddlers, or extended work hours make it hard to cook, or we are just plain too tired, there are still ways we can find balance in our diets and in our gut.
What Counts as Digestive Issues?
The most common symptoms of digestive disorders include bleeding, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. Everyone has digestive problems from time to time, but if persistent, it is always important to follow up with your family doctor to be sure to eliminate any serious disease, and to seek medical attention if you are in distress.
Acid reflux, gallstones, celiac disease, gluten and dairy intolerances, hemorrhoids, IBS, Crohn’s disease, and ulcerative colitis are some common digestive disorders. Homeopathy can help not only with digestive disorders, but also with managing some of those uncomfortable digestive problems that we all experience from time to time.
Treating DIGESTION Wholistically
- Try to eat whole foods. It’s just as easy to grab a banana as it is a bag of chips!
- Increase your fibre, it’s beneficial for optimal digestion.
- Stay hydrated, water, herbal teas, and non-caffeinated beverages all count.
- Manage your stress, it can have a negative impact on your digestive system.
- Eat slowly and mindfully. Take a few deep breaths before you dig in.
Top three remedies to think of when we have tummy troubles
Nux Vom is the #1 remedy for indigestion. Known for indigestion, belching, bloating, and even gas pains, from rich, fatty, or spicy foods.
Pulsatilla patients are particularly sensitive to rich or heavy foods, such as meats, gravies, and desserts. Digestion (and bowels) are easily disrupted.
Carbo Vegetablis is needed when gas and belching rise from even the plainest foods. Any indulgence causes a headache and there is often an aversion to meat, milk, and fatty foods.
