Good digestion is the foundation of good health.
When your digestion is working well, your body is able to break down the food you eat, absorb essential vitamins and minerals, process waste products and get rid of whatever's left over. You will be able to taste and appreciate the food and drinks you consume, feel a sense of hunger when appropriate, and feel a sense of satiety and wellness after eating.
When your digestive function isn't up to scratch, you can't break down food efficiently, meaning you won't get the nutrients you require. Your digestion may be sluggish, which can result in reflux, bloating and a sense of heaviness after food. You may also experience pain or gas in the abdomen, along with constipation or diarrhoea.
It is important to have a balanced diet and to take note of your digestion - that way you can be sure to get the most out of each meal. Sometimes tools to aid digestion, such as herbal bitters, fibre supplements, and digestive teas can play an important role in helping you get back on track. Acupuncture can be useful for restoring digestive function, particularly when no other cause for your symptoms has been found.
