How do we recognize Digestive Issues?

Reasons behind Digestive Issues
1. Modern Lifestyle
The digestive system of the body is extremely efficient in absorbing and assimilating food as well as processing and distributing nutrients to all the organs and cells of the body. However, modern lifestyle with low fibre content in daily diet, excess of processed foods, reduced water intake and lack of exercise leads to Digestive issues. Even not responding timely to the urge to go to the toilet can lead to constipation. Travelling also is a known trigger of Digestive problems.
2. Response to certain food and medications
An individual may start having digestive problems as the body’s response to certain food products – excess of dairy items, fizzy drinks, processed food or intake of wheat items in those allergic to wheat can lead to digestive issues.
Similarly, certain medications – antacid medicines containing calcium or aluminium, antidepressants, iron pills and narcotics – can lead to digestion problems.
3. Psychological Reasons
Stress, Depression, Anxiety are some of the psychological reasons that lead to constipation. As already mentioned, medication for these issues also lead to Digestive Issues.
Digestion problems like Diarrhea are caused by bacteria which can be transmitted in our body through food, unclean hands, etc. Hence, maintaining proper hygiene, regularly cleaning hands and eating with washed hands is extremely necessary for avoiding certain digestion-related problems.
A disciplined and clean lifestyle with proper food and water intake, regular exercise and a positive attitude can do wonders to prevent Digestion Problems, which when untamed can lead to major health issues in the long run.
