Digestive issues: Your Healthy fix's Perspective

What are digestive issues?

Digestive issues happen when your body has trouble breaking down food. During digestion, food turns into useful nutrients and anything your body can't use gets eliminated. When there are digestive problems, this process doesn't work well. As a result, food isn't digested properly and nutrients aren't absorbed right.

This often leads to stomach and gut issues.

Your stomach, bile and pancreas all play important roles in digestion. The stomach makes acid to break down food, the gallbladder adds bile for digesting fats and the pancreas releases enzymes to break down proteins, carbs and fats. If there are issues with any of these, it can cause digestive problems.

The quality of your gut bacteria, also known as gut flora, is crucial for good digestion. These bacteria help digest things that enzymes can't, like fiber. The more healthy gut bacteria you have, the better your digestion. Eating a healthy diet improves the quality and quantity of good gut bacteria, while unhealthy diets with lots of fats and sugars increase harmful bacteria, leading to poorer digestion.

Digestive problems can show up in different ways, either as ongoing issues or one-time occurrences. Examples include feeling bloated after meals, experiencing heartburn, dealing with constipation or having bouts of diarrhea.


What symptoms can you experience?

The symptoms that occur with digestive problems are:

  • Bloating in the abdomen fairly immediately after a meal
  • Feeling full after a meal as if the food does not want to go any further
  • Flatulence
  • Heartburn
  • Stinky stools with undigested food and lots of gas
  • An explosive bowel movement
  • Sometimes frothy or slimy stools
  • Bulging bulging abdomen with indistinct abdominal symptoms
  • Pain in the abdomen usually around the navel
  • Inability to tolerate certain foods well, such as coffee, alcohol, fat, histamine-rich foods and grains


What could be the cause of your digestive problems?

Various factors contribute to digestive problems, including:

  • Chronic Stress:

Stress triggers the release of adrenaline and cortisol, activating the immune system and slowing down less crucial functions like digestion.

  • Excessive Sugar Consumption:

Bad gut bacteria thrive on refined sugars and consuming too much sugar can increase the number of harmful bacteria at the expense of good gut bacteria, impacting digestive function.

  • Low Stomach Acid:

Inadequate stomach acid production or the use of antacids can hinder the body's ability to digest food effectively.

  • Pancreatic Function Decline:

The pancreas, responsible for digesting proteins, fats and carbohydrates, can experience a gradual decline in function, negatively affecting digestion.


Other contributing factors may include:

  • Antibiotic Use
  • Parasitic Load
  • Food Hypersensitivities
  • Unhealthy Diet
  • Improper Chewing
  • Overeating
  • High Fat Intake
  • Gluten Intolerance
  • Food Allergies
  • Obesity
  • Crohn's Disease
  • Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)
  • Colorectal Inflammation (Ulcerative Colitis)
  • Insufficient Good Bacteria
  • Bacterial Infection in the Small Intestine
  • Bacterial Fermentation in the Colon
  • Gallbladder or Liver Disease
  • Infection with the Parasite Giardia lamblia
  • Exercising Immediately After a Meal
  • Understanding and addressing these factors can be crucial in managing and preventing digestive issues.

Our advice to heal yourself from digestive issues:

  • Chew your food properly: 
While chewing, the tongue produces saliva. This helps in the digestion of food. Saliva also contains the enzyme amylase. This enzyme already partially digests carbohydrates. 
  • Eat high-fiber foods:
High-fiber foods can improve digestion or even prevent symptoms.Try our Vegan protein blends infused with digestive enzymes. 
  • Eat ginger, turmeric & lemongrass regularly
These Ayurvedic herbs support digestion. Turmeric is good for liver and bile function. Ginger is used for proper stomach function. Lemongrass is known for its digestive properties and can help with stomach upset and promote healthy digestion.  Try our Functional Tea: Digest. 
  • Eat less sugar:
When eating a lot of sugar, excess sugar is fermented by bacteria, causing fermentation. This releases gases and acids that can cause intestinal discomfort.
  • Add probiotics to your diet:
Probiotics contain natural microorganisms that support digestion. Probiotics are found in kefir, kombucha, sauerkraut, pickles, miso soup and tempeh, among others. Our unique formula is designed to reduce bloating and excess gas, enhancing the efficiency of your digestive system. Experience a more comfortable post-meal sensation as our formula supports healthy digestion, leaving you feeling lighter and more energetic.

    Additional Tips for Digestive Harmony:

    • Don't eat too large portions
    • Maintain a healthy weight
    • Try to avoid stress as much as possible
    • Drink plenty of water
    • Exercise moderately intense for at least half an hour a day


    By incorporating these practices into your routine, you're taking positive steps towards a happier, HEALTHIER digestive system.
