“In Ayurveda, changes for better digestive health could range from dietary suggestions to going to bed earlier. As a holistic system, Ayurveda also takes emotions into account when dealing with physical ailments, so the remedies also sooth stress, anxiety and other upsets that might trigger an uneasy stomach. Here are some guidelines for improving your digestive health.”

Herbs for Weak Digestion

“These remedies are good for reducing gas and improving poor digestion.
Add fresh ginger and cinnamon to your oatmeal or other cooked cereal. A bit of clove can be good, too.
Sip ginger tea. Add a one-inch piece of fresh ginger to one and one-half to two cups water, then boil for five minutes. If it’s too strong, add water.
Try coriander, cumin and fennel tea. Add one-half teaspoon of each herb to one and one-half to two cups water, boil for five minutes, then strain and sip.”
“Tulsi tea, available at health food stores, is another one to try.
Experiment with lassi, a popular drink in India. Mix 1 tablespoon of plain yogurt into one-half cup warm water after meal.”

More Tummy Soothing Tips

“Massage your abdomen with warm oil, beginning with the lower right quadrant, and circling up above the naval, then descending to the left. Breathe gently yet deeply, focusing on the colon and visual movement happening there.”
“Place a hot water bottle on your belly for 10 to 20 minutes.
Breathing well is a big help. Good breathing is quiet, unforced and relaxed.”
