Habit 1. Eating under stress
Anger, irritation, resentment and other negative emotions cause in the body a reaction that can be compared with a short circuit in the electrical wiring – a sharp breakdown of the digestive functions occurs. Violation of the production of gastric juice, motor activity of the stomach, its blood supply, sharply reduced local immunity. Spasm of blood vessels reduces the absorption capacity of the intestine. If you load the gastrointestinal tract at this time, the reaction can be the most unpredictable – from heartburn to diarrhea.
At the same time, during stress, some people lose their appetite completely, while others, on the contrary, are ready to eat a cow. In both cases, gastroenterologists recommends refraining from eating until the emotions are “spent” and the person does not calm down. If the feeling of hunger is very strong – you can eat something. The main thing is not to overdo it with a portion.
With discomfort and pain, the digestive organs signal: deal with your feelings and attitude to others! Those who have symptoms from the stomach, it is worth considering who and what exactly he “does not digest”, who and what he “does not like”. Otherwise, the prospect of friendship with drugs is assured.
Calm, satisfied with themselves and the environment people digestion problems, as a rule, do not suffer. The stomach gets sick from constantly anxious, internally critical, exposing to itself and others the overestimated goals and requirements. Without achieving the desired, they experience a feeling of inferiority, despair, doom, discontent with themselves, which, due to various circumstances, can not express outside. Depressed emotions either “muffle” with plentiful food, or the process of eating becomes so painful that people can not eat a single piece without pills.
Habit 2. Food under duress
The signal for food should always be a feeling of hunger. Sucked in the pit of the stomach – it means the secret began to stand out, the stomach is ready to perform its functions. No appetite – do not make the gastrointestinal tract work.
However, modern people, on the contrary, are less likely to listen to their bodies. The diet is dictated more by the circumstances or opinions of others: ate because there was a free minute, because he found in the refrigerator the day before yesterday cutlets, which it is a pity to throw out, because it is necessary to support the company or because “havchik” got to freebies … Moms and wives who persistently slip a plate with the words “You need to eat 5 times a day” or “From the wind staggering, involuntarily help your relatives earn chronic ailments of the gastrointestinal tract.
Habit 3. Passion for sharp, fried, smoked
Spicy seasonings, fried and smoked – powerful stimulants of gastric secretion. For their cleavage, highly active gastric juice with high acidity is produced, which, unfortunately, can damage the mucous membrane, causing gastritis, erosion and ulcers. The stomach, in fact, “digests” itself.
Habit 4. Replacing food with other pleasures
More often people who have failed to realize their spiritual aspirations and spiritual needs lie on food. Anyone who has forgotten how to get joy from creativity, love, communication, physical activity, is forced to turn to food as a way to enjoy. After all, this process is accompanied by the development of endorphins and enkephalins, which bring a sense of satisfaction. But since true needs are left unsatisfied, there is a desire to grow more and more.
– The holiday begins with a feast, interrupted by smoke breaks, and ends at best with dances, but it would be necessary to reverse: at the beginning a cultural program and then a meal. Nobody dances? Talk, sing, listen to music, communicate, and poison jokes. A person who is full of full-fledged communication, will not get it.
Habit 5. Hobbies for refined foods
The digestive tract better splits those foods that are closest to their original natural state. Therefore, he will more gratefully receive and treat a bunch of grapes with bones, and not grape juice, porridge from oatmeal, and not from oat flakes, an apple that has not been peeled, honey instead of sugar. The less processed the products were, the more fiber, pectins and vitamins needed for full digestion. And the body is useful, and digestion is easy.
As for the thermal treatment of animal products, it is important to keep in mind: at high temperatures, the protein coagulates, and such a stomach is much more difficult to digest. Therefore, a piece of dried meat for the digestive tract is much preferable to shish kebab. The process of drying is usually accompanied by salting, but the salt does not affect digestion, it “beats” on the vessels. If a person does not suffer from atherosclerosis and hypertension, jerky meat for his stomach will be more useful than stew and boiled, says the gastroenterologist.
Habit 6. Eating “between business”
Food charges our body not only with nutrients, but also gives strength. The longer and more active the jaws work, the more a person concentrates on his taste sensations, the more energy he receives, the faster he becomes saturated, and the substances are better digested and digested.
Do not forget that food should remain the main biological pleasure. By mechanically throwing something into your mouth and swallowing quickly, we lose a significant amount of energy and nutrients. You can skip kilograms of products through yourself and remain sluggish and bleak. Why? All that could not digest the gastrointestinal tract, “eat up” germs. Well-fed and contented, microorganisms multiply intensely, the products of their vital activity are absorbed into the blood and poison the body. The result – gas formation, bloating, dysbiosis and weakness.
Habit 7. Coffee breaks
Offer a guest a coffee or tea is considered a sign of good taste. Coffee machines at every step. Respectful organizers of events necessarily arrange coffee-pauses. Gastroenterologists are not happy:
“For our area, coffee is a” foreign “product, when it is produced, the grains are roasted at 200 degrees, which means that additional enzymes are required for its digestion and digestion,” he says. – In addition, coffee, like strong tea, is a powerful stimulant: it stimulates the digestive tract, depletes the nervous system. Most coffeemakers are treated for the inflammatory processes of the stomach and duodenal mucosa.
To the ardent fans of coffee gastroenterologists recommends limiting one or two cups a day, and in the rest to replace it with herbal preparations (dog rose, ivan-tea, linden, thyme, mint, chamomile), mineral or drinking water.
Habit 8. Combining bread and circuses
Information age makes itself felt. Interiors of home kitchens, cafes, bars and canteens are increasingly decorated with TVs. In general, you can see how next to a plate of soup – a smartphone with an open page in social networks, or lunch is at the desktop, in front of the computer monitor.
The brain, in which the centers of digestion regulation are located, inhibits the processes of digestion and assimilation of food under information load. Therefore, choose – either bread, or spectacle.
The only acceptable accompaniment of a delicious dinner is muffled music, says the gastroenterologist.
