“Food, glorious food!” I love that song from one of the sequel of ICE AGE animation movie.
As the holidays fastly upon us, the cravings for good food hightens and sometimes or most of the times if we are not careful, and our insatiable quest to stuff ourselves with everything within our reach is just too great a temptation to resist. Indigestion, upset stomach, colonary pain, are just a few of the things you wouldn’t want to suffer during the holidays.
Indigestion is one of the many causes of gas and abdominal discomfort in our colon, and if you are suffering from certain colon disease, indigestion is the last thing you need happening in your stomach.
Certain foods, especially if they are not properly cooked, cause indigestion. Some people react unfavourable to certain foods like beans, cabbage, onions, cucumber, radishes and seafood. Fried foods as well as rich and spicy foods often cause abdominal discomfort and gas, and aggravate the existing condition.
What are some other important considerations?
• Excessive smoking and intake of alcohol can also cause stomach upsets.
• Constipation may interfere with the normal flow of ingested matter through the gastro-intestinal tract, resulting in gas and abdominal pain.
• Drinking too much water or liquid with meals, insomnia, emotions such as jealousy, fear and anger and lack of exercise are among the other causes of indigestion.
Do not ruin your holiday. Take necessary discipline on these 3 simple things and you will be on your way to a wonderful holiday season.
