This three-step digestive disorder remedy strengthens your digestion and improves nutrient absorption. It's also an effective indigestion remedy and preventative. If you're looking for simple, effective, natural remedies for digestive system disorders, and a way to prevent these problems, start incorporating the below methods into your daily routine. You don't need to take any pills or buy anything - this digestive disorder remedy is based on time-tested, traditional Chinese tips and techniques for healthy digestion.

3 Step Digestive Disorder Remedy

Step 1: Before Meals

  • Do the Ab Lift: This exercise involves using your abdominal muscles to pull your abdomen in, hold it for several seconds, and then gently let it go. It's an excellent way to invigorate your abdominal organs, enhance blood circulation, stimulate your bowels and prepare your digestive organs for food. For full instructions, including color photos and tips, follow the link at the end of the article.

    Step 2: During Meals

  • Eat simple, light meals: If you suffer from indigestion, bloating after meals, and other digestive upsets, you may be eating too much heavy, spicy, oily foods. Instead try simpler, blander meals of steamed vegetables, noodles or rice, with small amounts only of a single kind of meat, finely sliced or chopped. Also try eating 4 or 5 small meals a day instead of 3 big ones.
  • Chew well, eat slowly: Digestion starts in your mouth, so chew food well and eat slowly if you want to prevent indigestion.
  • Don't overeat: Overeating is a major cause of digestive problems. Be kind to your digestive organs and stop eating at around 75% full.
  • Don't eat when upset: Eating while highly stressed or emotionally upset is very bad for your digestion. Instead skip the meal and eat when you're more relaxed.
  • No cold drinks: Cold drinks during meals are also very bad for your digestion. According to Traditional Chinese Dietary Therapy, the digestive process requires warmth to break down food. Dumping cold liquids on top of your food greatly impedes this process. To help digestion drink a cup of warm-hot green tea instead.
  • Dessert: Eating dessert, including fruit, with or just after meals interferes with the digestion of your main meal. Sweets like cakes and ice cream are best avoided altogether, or eaten on their own if you really must have them.

    Step 3: After Meals

  • Rub your abdomen: Rubbing your abdomen after meals is one of the simplest, most effective natural remedies for digestive system problems. It enhances digestion and absorption of nutrients and is a useful indigestion remedy when you eat too much or too quickly. Rub your hands together to warm them up, then place one on top of the other on the right side of your abdomen next to your belly button. Rub in circles around your belly button and entire abdominal area for 2-3 minutes.

  • Walk: Taking a slow, leisurely walk for 10-15 minutes (or more) after meals is another highly beneficial way to improve digestion. For greater benefits, rub your abdomen (see above tip) while walking.

    Don't be fooled by the apparent simplicity of this 3-step digestive disorder remedy. Incorporate this time-tested dietary advice into your daily life and you will notice a positive change in your digestion, bowel movements, energy level and health in general.
