Digestion Problems? Here’s Food For Thought…



fruit-1850032_960_720.jpg

Is your gut unhappy? Whether you’re suffering from the runs, constipation or painful cramps, a trip to the doctor is always recommended, especially if you’ve been suffering with a reoccurring problem or simply been suffering for a lengthy amount of time. Sadly not all digestive problems are easy to diagnose, however you may be able to restore order to your gut by making a few simple changes to your lifestyle. Here’s some helpful tips and tricks to digest and get your bowel movement back to normal.  

Try medication

There are plenty of over-the-counter meds worth trying including IBS probiotics and laxatives. Some may have side effects so it’s always worth reading the label first. By buying online you may also be able to read consumer reviews to judge the medication’s effectiveness. Various herbal remedies such as ginger root, fennel and many herbal teas are proven to be good for the bowel.

Limit fat and up your fibre intake

Fatty foods take more work to digest and can make many digestive problems worse. Take a break from such foods, especially ones including processed fats. A high fibre diet made up of vegetables, whole grains and fruits can be good for both constipation and diarrheal symptoms. Generally it’s also good to avoid trigger foods such as dairy, spicy foods, alcohol and caffeine too.

Stay hydrated

Drinking lots of water will help to flush out any bacteria that could be causing an infection as well as breaking down any hard stools if you have constipation (as well as stopping your body from becoming dehydrated if you have diarrhoea). It’s very difficult to drink too much water – we should all be drinking 8 glasses on average a day. For digestive problems, it’s beneficial to drink even more than this.

Exercise regularly

Staying active also keeps foods moving through your digestive system, which is useful if you’ve got constipation. Exercise also has the dual effect of creating antibodies and boosting your immune system, helping to fight off any infections or pains. On top of this, you can help maintain a healthy weight through regular exercise, which is also good for your digestive system.

De-stress

Stress is also bad for your digestive system. When stressed, our body goes into a survival mode that traces back to when we were cavemen. Energy and neuro signals are sent to important parts of our body used for fight or flight (e.g. the legs for running, the lungs for breathing) and taken away from parts of the body that aren’t deemed important at that time (e.g. the digestive system). This causes our gut to go into disarray, producing too much stomach acid and not producing enough digestive enzymes. Taking the time to de-stress could be the solution to your gut problems, or at the very least calm any ongoing disorder such as IBS or a food intolerance. Various forms of relaxation therapy and herbal remedies can stop you from getting as stressed.

Review Cerave Foaming Cleanser si Cerave Moinsturing Lotion

 Buna fetelor, Astazi vreau sa va scriu despre un brand descoperit anul trecut care imi place foarte mult pentru partea de ingrijire a pielii : Cerave. Cerave este un brand cu produse create impreuna cu dermatologi, care au dezvoltat o gama de produse fara iritanti, bazate pe ceramide similare pielii pentru a oferi o varianta de ingrijire care reface bariera pielii si a oferi hidratare pentru o perioada mai lunga. Ceramidele formeaza bariera de protectia a pielii, mentin hidratarea si compun 50% din stratul de lipide. Gelul de curatare pentru piele normala si grasa Cerave (Foaming Cleanser) este produsul care mi se potriveste cel mai bine pentru a-mi curata tenul dimineata si seara. Contine trei ceramide esentiale, acid hialuronic, elimina excesul de sebum , curata usor si profund impuritatile si machiajul, nu blocheaza porii. Pentru machiajul ochilor, recomand totusi sa folosim apa micelara inainte. Formula este fara parfum deci este potrivita si pentru tenul sensibil.Mie im

Review: Cleanse & Care Eye Make-up Remover Boots No7

 Am demachiantul acesta de cateva luni si imi place sa-l folosesc , cred ca e demachiantul meu bifazic preferat.  Are o consistenta apoasa , usor uleioasa si curata bine pana si machiajul rezistent la apa. Testul suprem a fost cu un eyeliner waterproof de la Essence care trece foarte greu , insa cu acest demachiant nu am avut probleme.  Eu agit foarte bine flaconul, pun cateva pompite de demachiant pe o discheta si sterg machiajul ochilor .Nu imi agaseaza ochii , nu trebuie sa insist tare. Deseori l-am folosit si pentru ten si curata bine , pot sa spun ca imi simtean tenul usor hidratat de la uleiul continut.  Imi place si ca formula este fara parfum , testata oftalmologic, hipoalergenica, potrivita pentru ochii sensibili .  Singurul minus ar fi pretul mai mare decat al celorlalte demachiante bifazice folosite de mine, in jur de 35 de lei. Pompita este perfecta pentru dozarea produsului , cateva pompite imi sunt deajunse pentru ambii ochi.  Din cateva miscari s-a luat
