Women’ Digestive Health

digestive healthDue to increased awareness, more and more people talk to their doctors about their digestive problems and symptoms and that is the first step to finding the cure. According to medical statistics, women tend to suffer from digestive disease more than men. The reason is yet unknown, but it is probably because of gender-related and biological differences. Now we will share 5 tips on how to improve your digestive health as a woman.

  1. Fiber. Fiber is so important for our digestive health and we tend to forget that. So, be sure you add fiber to your daily diet. There are many ways to do this naturally. When buying food, read labels and choose products with highest fiber. When you travel, be sure to pack healthy high-fiber snacks. Eat fruit and vegetables as much as possible.
  2. Drink green tea instead of coffee. You’ll get your caffeine, but green tea also contains antioxidants which benefit digestive and general wellness.
  3. Stress Management. Of course you cannot eliminate all the stressing situations and circumstances, but at least you can manage them not to take a toll on your general well-being. Stretching and relaxation about 10 minutes a day will relieve the tension and that will lead to better digestion.
  4. Physical exercise. Regular work-out will keep your general health in a good condition and improve your digestive health. Walk or ride a bike when you have to travel short distances, take the stairs, play with your kids and pets…
  5. Annual medical exam. See your doctor at least once in a year, talk about your symptoms and focus on digestive health.

*If you have bowel disorders (in particular Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Ulcerative Colitis and Diverticulitis)  there are many ways to treat this condition.
