It’s kind of embarrassing, but it happens to almost everyone. These common digestive problems may be affecting you, but there’s a natural, organic way to end them.
We’ve all been in that situation, where your tummy is rumbling, you’re uncomfortable, and if you don’t make a mad dash for the bathroom, who knows what might happen.
Thankfully, those common digestive problems are not the end of the world, and there are natural solutions! If you find yourself suffering from cranky bowels, you’re not alone. But with a few simple fixes, you can get things going more smoothly.
When You’re Stopped Up
Not being able to “go” is a most unpleasant experience. It’s most commonly caused by eating too many dairy products, foods high in fat and sugar, lack of water, and lack of high-fiber foods. Certain medications can contribute to this as well. Changes to your normal routine might also mess with your digestive system – for example, traveling. And no one needs that extra bloat when you’re sitting poolside on your Caribbean vacation.
When You Can’t Stop
And then there’s the exact opposite of occasional constipation. When you’re at the office or only near a public bathroom, things can get way too real, way too fast. Let’s avoid that as much as we can, shall we? Occasional diarrhea is often caused by eating foods that you might be intolerant to, like dairy or gluten. Like constipation, it can also be caused by a deviation from your normal routine or certain medications as well.
