How to treat heaviness in the stomach

How to treat heaviness in the stomach
We can suffer from it after a very heavy meal or one with too much fat. Stomach heaviness is a very common problem today, due to the diet we eat. Not eating a balanced diet, eating in a hurry or excessively help worsen the situation. In addition, emotional aspects such as worries or stress are also triggering factors. Discover some home treatments for stomach heaviness.

Recommendations to treat stomach heaviness

If you usually eat dishes with a lot of fat, strong condiments or desserts with too much refined sugar, as well as alcoholic beverages, you are more likely to suffer from this problem. The reason is that the stomach processes unhealthy foods more difficultly. This is what causes you to feel heavy or bloated after eating, because the digestive system is working at full speed.

The first step to avoid the problem of stomach heaviness is to control what we consume, especially sausages, fried foods, pâtés and desserts heavily loaded with refined sugar or alcoholic beverages. These are bad in every way, because they increase cholesterol and harm our general health.

A balanced diet is the basis for enjoying a healthy life and, therefore, a healthy stomach. Eat more fruits than sweets, more vegetables than meat, less sauces, oils, fried foods and fats. Choose raw or steamed food. Calcium and magnesium can also be added to the diet as inorganic salts. These help with the heaviness and acidity resulting from poor digestion.

Habits that benefit digestion

When you know you are going to eat a lot, for example at a dinner with friends or a party, eat slowly, chewing your food well. This way, everything will arrive more “processed” in the stomach. Eating slowly is recommended in all cases. Opt for light dinners and choose to eat a snack between meals, such as a fruit or a cup of nuts.

After dinner you can have yogurt for dessert because it contains probiotics that help with digestion and improve intestinal flora. It is not advisable to go to bed right after dinner, allow at least 30 minutes or an hour to pass, especially if you have eaten more than one dish.

Exercises to improve stomach heaviness

Some yoga exercises can help you improve circulation and digestion, stimulating the stomach. For example, you can lie on your back by bending your legs and wrapping your arms around them, gently pressing on your belly. This will also help with flatulence and promote circulation in the legs, avoiding the feeling of bloating. It seems proven that moderate physical activity helps eliminate gas and reduces symptoms in patients affected by abdominal pain and stomach heaviness.

Home remedies to treat a heavy stomach

When you suffer from this problem regularly, or after a heavy dinner, you can take advantage of the benefits of some homemade foods. Among the most recommended are:

Lemon juice: It is ideal for burning, acidity and heaviness of the stomach. You just have to squeeze a lemon and fill the rest of the cup or glass with water. Add a tablespoon of baking soda. It will calm the feeling of heaviness quickly. If you don't have baking soda, you can eat a banana or banana and then drink the lemon juice with water. This can reduce gastritis (inflammation of the stomach) and also neutralize gastric acids or juices.

Yogurt with papaya: It serves to accelerate the digestion process. If you feel very heavy even a long time after eating, consume a cup of natural yogurt with some pieces of papaya. You can add a slice of kiwi or pineapple. These fruits contain enzymes that help speed up digestion. If you have constipation problems, add a teaspoon of cinnamon on top.

Water with mint and lemon: Mix a glass of cold water (if it is carbonated, better) with the juice of half a lemon and some mint leaves. Add cubes and drink to refresh and also to speed up digestion, as it will activate gastric juices.

Orange: If you eat an orange after dinner, you will improve your digestion and you will not feel heavy. This citrus fruit, as well as lemon or grapefruit, helps detoxify the liver, stimulate the production of bile, responsible for digesting lipids, and provides a feeling of freshness and lightness in the stomach.
