What we eat, as we digest it, so are we made.
A good digestion plays a huge role in keeping us healthy.
Whereas due to poor digestion, we can have many health problems like constipation to skin problems, anemia.
While there are a lot of health products available in the market that claim to cure your digestive issues, it is best to follow natural remedies to enhance digestion and improve the condition of the intestines.
Ayurvedic expert Dr Diksha Bhavsar has suggested some natural remedies that can help in improving your digestive system.
Dr Diksha Bhavsar says that promoting gut health is the best way to improve immunity.
By making small changes in your daily routine and diet, you can get rid of digestive problems.
Here are some tips related to this by Ayurveda experts.
Vajrasana After Meal
Sitting in Vajrasana after lunch can improve blood circulation in your stomach and make digestion and absorption easier.
Have Buttermilk With Lunch
Buttermilk, loaded with probiotic benefits, is ideal for cooling the stomach and relieving the symptoms of acidity. It improves digestion by reducing Kapha and Vata.
Ayurveda recommends not to eat certain foods together.
They are called mismatched meals. Fruits and milk, fish and milk, honey and hot water, cold and hot foods together are some of the food combinations that can upset your digestion. So avoid eating it.
Legumes and nuts contain phytic acid which makes it difficult for our gut to absorb nutrients from them.
Soaking these releases the phytic acid and makes it easier for our intestine to digest the food and absorb the available nutrients.
Dr Bhavsar says that good gut health is required to metabolize raw food properly. “When your agni is already weak, raw food will dilute it further and cause you to suffer from bloating. So always eat cooked food,” she says.
The more you move, the more your digestion will improve.
If you can’t find time to exercise, walking at least 5000 steps will help you improve your digestion.
