I am sharing some basic principles and Thumbrule for stomach care. I will tell you natural care with Natural Remedies for Stomach Care. Once you start learning about your stomach and follow the Natural Remedies for Stomach Care. Your stomach would also care for you
We all love to eat,drink and enjoy but sometimes we fill our stomach with so much food even our body doesn’t require that much. It’s happened with me so many times that I have overeaten without realising that my stomach is full and has no more space for food but I still try to stuff my poor stomach. Lets care for our stomach. We all should enjoy have a blast but to a limit where you don’t give problem to your body or problem to your stomach. I guess this scenario happens to all of us at many occassions and many a times in life …… right?
I am gonna tell you how to keep gas,acidity and Pitta (excessive heat) away from our body. There are few basic simple rules for stomach care but you need to follow it religiously. I have a very sensitive stomach which reacts immediately I always had indigestion problems,Gas problems since childhood. I started working with BPO’s and after a few years I developed acidity,pitta and my stomach used to have a burning sensation. This was happening on account of eating wrong type of food,eating at wrong timings , working late hours and sleeping during day.
I am gonna share few basic rules which you need to follow if you are suffering from gas ,acidity and even if you wanna keep this problems at bay. Its an Old saying early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy,wealthy and wise.I ts true because when you sleep early and get up early you will realize that your immunity has strongly built up also you will experience less stomach problems This point has been proven in Ayurveda. So please sleep tight sleep early and get up early lol
- Its important to eat but in small quantities and in every 2 to 3 hours you should consume food . If you eat in big qunatities your stomach faces a big load so it gives problem to you like gas,acidity etc. Its just like your washing machine if you load with too many clothes in the spinner ,it won’t work properly or even if it works it will not function the way it should.So eating right on right time is equally important for your stomach to fully function. Breakfast is very important its okay if you skip your lunch but please make it a point to have your breakfast. Its very important for you and your body. Also try to make an effort to eat after every 2 hours like you can munch on almonds,walnuts,fruits,cheese,juice,healthy biscuits,fibrous food etc. Please include lots of chapatis,sabzi to your meal and tiffins. Its very important you have your dinner before eight or max till eight thirty for proper digestion. Avoid heavy meals during night time instead go for a lighter meal like roti sabzi. If you feel hungry late nights you can have fruits.
- Too Spicy and Salty food should be avoided. Consumption of warm water or Lukewarm water should be taken after 30 mins from Lunch and Dinner. When you drink hot water it helps in digestion of food and discarding toxins from your body. Avoid Cold Beverages or cold water immediately after food insteadd have lukewarm water or hot water.
- Avoid Vegetables which increases Pitta Dosh Inyour body like Groundnuts,Cabbages,Brinjal,capsicum,Prawns,Crabs,Shells,Cauliflower.Also avoid Dals(lentils) you can have tur and mung dal.
- Try to drink coffee and tea in a moderation.If you are addicted to tea like me you can make tea mix with herbs like Tulsi,Elaichi,Lemon Grass even Galangal(Thai ginger) is very effective if added while boiling tea. The other option is you can switch to Green tea( i.e tea without milk).
Sometimes we go for marriages,functions,office parties, etc in such scenarios obviously we don’t have any option. When we don’t have much of choice but to eat what is served or we just eat anything to avoid starvation.In such cases when you reach home and you have gas or acidity and you are in catch22 situation. In such situations what to do? Don’t worry I will tell you how to care for your stomach.
