The Importance of Digestion Part II

The foods we eat and the way in which they are processed in the intestinal tract are essential to good health and longevity. I hope that you have started applying some of the tips I shared with you last week. If you have, you are probably enjoying some of the most immediate results that proper digestion rewards you with like a flatter tummy. Below you will find simple ways to improve your digestion naturally.

The next step to good digestion is to start moving. Walking is the most effective way to overcome digestive issues, it is the one form of exercise that doesn’t require a lot of money to start; you will need a good pair of walking shoes and a the willingness to have an active lifestyle to get the heart to pump blood to benefits all parts of your body.

Other great physically activities include:

·         Dancing

·         Swimming

·         Yoga

·         Gardening

·         Cycling

·         Martial arts

·         Zumba

·         Aerobics

·         Jumping rope


Physical activities along with a healthy diet are very important lifestyle choices to help maintain health and longevity. Thirty minutes of any form of activities is essential to good health, it is estimated that the more active you are the more endurance you will have.


Hydrating the body will have immediate impact on your digestion, adding purified water to your diet and consuming half of your body weight in ounces (if you weigh 100 pounds drink 50 ounces of water) will help in many ways. 


Here are some guidelines to best utilize and process your fluids:  

·         Drink water on an empty stomach first thing in the morning (preferably after you brush your teeth), to help move toxins out of the body

·         Water is a solvent it removes impurities from intestinal tract to increase our ability to absorb nutrients

·         Drinking cold water slows down digestion and overwhelms digestive system, drink it at room temperature

·         Drink water half hour to one hour before and after meals prevents digestive juices to be diluted and cause digestive troubles

These are two simple things you can do to start affecting your body today. Good luck!

I want to wish all the supporters of Community Journal a Happy Holidays and Healthy New Year!
