3 bad habits among people with digestion problems
Eating to hide being upset or angry
We all love eating in front of the TV or in bed, while driving or when we just take a couple of bites… however, this is wrong and you don’t let the organism function properly. It is better not to eat than to eat while you are angry and upset. When you eat in those moments the body sets it task to addressing stress. The body activates the muscles for physical activity and inhibits the proper digestion of food. When you take some time to relax during the meal, the digestive nervous system turns on. This increases the para-sympathy activity and while the body relaxes and enjoys the meals, it encourages digestion, while turning off the stress
Resting on the right side after eating
Everyone wants to rest after a meal – the pressure drops and we feel fatigued. The best way is to lay on the left side, which lets the stomach cradle the food, therefore making you feel more relaxed. If you lay on your right side gravity will force the food to go out of the stomach before time, enabling non-digested foot to enter the small intestine.
Being physical inactive after every meal
15 minute walk after breakfast, lunch, or dinner lowers the levels of sugar in the blood. If you can’t take a walk right after the meal, then take longer 45 minute walk in the evening or a couple of hours after eating. These walks help the muscles use the extra sugar in the blood before it makes any kind of damage.
