Good lean meats are organic chicken, turkey, and wild fish. Rotate your diet with these leans meats plus vegetables. An effective method to introduce magnesium into your life style is by taking a magnesium supplement daily or soaking in Epson salt baths.
Heat also helps with digestion. Drink warm water, but only 1/2 cup of water during your meal. In the morning to wake up your digestion, drink warm lemon water. Fiber is an excellent way to improve your digestive health. The recommended daily amount is 30-50 grams of fiber per day.
There are 2 types of fiber: Insoluble and Soluble. Insoluble fibers do not absorb water like kale, fruits and vegetables. For example, if you do not chew the kale well, you will see kale in your stool. Soluble fibers absorb water and prevent watery stools. Examples of soluble fibers are oats, barley, figs, prunes, and sweet potatoes. Water and good fats (e.g. olive and avocado oils) help with relieving stools. Be sure to use 1-2 tbsp of oil per day.
Ensure that you are not introducing the wrong fibers into your meals because fiber is not good for bowel disorders and bacteria loves fiber. Check with your nutritionist to create a plan to introduce the correct fibers into your meals.
Following the tips will ensure that you will improve your digestive health.
