8 Ways To Safely Clean Your Stomach And Intestines
1. Stay hydrated
There is nothing better than water for your body. Drinking less water slows down our digestive system creating problems for our stomach. We must drink plenty of water each day to keep our system healthy. When your urine is clear and odorless, its a sign you’re getting enough water. Drinking adequate amount of water is the first step to clean your stomach. Make sure to drink 8-10 glasses of water every day. That’s a minimum of 64 ounces.
2. Eat more vegetables, fruits and whole grain products
Vegetables, fruits and whole grain products are rich in fiber. Fiber is important to your body. Fruits like strawberries, mangoes,and avocados, and dried fruits like raisins and prunes provide the required fiber, and help keep the stomach clean and healthy.
3. Don’t lie down for 2 hours after you eat
Often many of us lie down or rest after having our dinner. This slows the digestive process which can create problems in your stomach. This bad habit also increases the risk of acid reflux.
4. Eat on schedule
Some doctors say that having your meals on a regular schedule can help keep your stomach healthy and in shape. Practice having your breakfast, lunch and dinner at the same time each day.
5. Regular Yoga/Exercise
Regular exercise and yoga keep the food inside your stomach moving, thereby reducing constipation. It will also help you to maintain your figure and weight. Add it to your schedule and stay healthy for life.
6. Avoid fast food
The more saturated fat you eat, the more your stomach gets strained. You should try to cut down on burgers, cakes, chips, pizzas, and donuts to help keep your stomach healthy and to prevent it from any kind of stomachache.
7. Eat slowly
Eating in a rush or taking big bites can put a lot of stress on your stomach and your digestive system will have to work harder to digest the food. This may cause a stomachache or affect your digestive system adversely. Chewing thoroughly will lead to easier digestion and you can also enjoy the delicious taste of food longer.
8. Quit Bad habits
Intake of alcohol, cigarettes, and drugs can disturb the functioning of your stomach and digestive system which can cause stomach ulcers and heartburn. These should be avoided or at least reduced.
