A good digestive system enables good health. If we enjoy good digestion, the food we eat is absorbed and carried to its destination. However, at times, the food simply passes through the intestines without being digested, which make us feel uneasy and bloated. Many people are weighed down with annoying conditions such as nausea, bloating, gas, abdominal cramps, lack of appetite, foul smelling stools, or constipation alternating with diarrhea. Emotional stress is known to aggravate these symptoms, which are collectively known as the Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). IBS is characterized by a disturbance in the movement of the Gastro Intestinal (GI) tract. Wittingly or unwittingly, many of us abuse our GI tract with our habits of overeating and consuming excess quantity of sugar, coffee, alcohol, and maida.

Undigested lactose in the body gets fermented by the bacteria present in the gut, which causes bloating, pain, and cramps. We can gradually increase the fiber content in our diet. Fiber helps in making the stools bulky and waterlogged, enabling them to pass easily. If diarrhea is the main symptom, we must eat ripe banana, apples, curd, and pureed vegetables. These contain soluble fiber that proves useful, especially to manage diarrhea. For instance, the pectin present in apples and carrots is known to possess stool binding properties. If constipation is the main symptom, we need to increase our intake of insoluble fiber. This is present in whole grains such as oats (jav), bajri, jowar, makai atta, ragi, and wheat bran. We must never rush through our meals. Eat slowly and chew our food thoroughly. Not only does this help in digestion, but it also helps ease any discomfort we might be experiencing in the digestion process.
