How can stomach function be balanced and is it important?
Having problems with digestion once in a while is unpleasant, but not dramatic. When there is pressure and pinching in the stomach, the stomach and intestines often only need just a little bit of help to function optimally again.
Drinking enough (1.5 to 2 litres of water) throughout the day prevents the formation of tougher chyme and eases its transport through the body, thus unburdening stomach and intestine. However, this only applies to water, tea and very low-sugar drinks such as highly watered-down juices (spritzers). Soft drinks, fruit juices or even smoothies include a lot of nutrients and have to be digested themselves.
Additionally, movement stimulates the blood circulation, which may also benefit the stomach and intestines. It’s imperative that you find your own workout routine. Short, sportive exercises can be a good starting point to support your physical health.
