Tips for taking control of your digestive health naturally,

with Dr. Julie Gatza (Dr. Julie)

Belching, bloating, and constipation you may not want to talk about these digestion problems over dinner, yet how and what you eat (or don’t eat) could actually be among the bad digestive habits causing these issues.

For everyone looking for natural solutions to avoid or alleviate digestive upsets like bloating, burping, and irregularity, (to name a few), Dr. Julie Gatza (Dr. Julie) is here to share how losing a few tummy-troubling habits can turn your gut health – and your life – around.

10 Digestive NO-NOs:

Could your own bad digestive health habits be the source of your digestion problems? Here are the worst offenders, along with tips for better digestion:

1. You eat too late at night

A study published in the Canadian Journal of Diabetes concluded that eating dinner approximately two hours prior to bedtime at least three times a week was associated with severe and frequent heartburn.

2. You eat meat and starches at the same time

Because our digestive system breaks down proteins and starches at different rates by using different enzymes, it’s healthier to eat our steak first, give our digestive system about 15 minutes to digest it, and then eat our baked potato. Digestive enzyme supplements should be used before meals to assist digestion when meats and starches are consumed together.

3. Your diet lacks fiber

A fiber-poor diet interferes with regular bowel movements and may promote a variety of digestive disorders. Leafy green vegetables are an excellent fiber source.

4. You consume sugary soft drinks (2 glasses daily)

Sugar sweetened soft drinks may provide instant pep, but a 2019 study published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine found those who drank two or more glasses a day had a higher risk of dying from digestive disorders.

5. You have a fast-food habit

Diets comprised of processed fast foods have been linked to a higher risk of digestive disorders. Eating a diet low in food additives, trans fats and artificial sweeteners may improve your digestion and protect against digestive diseases.

6. You don’t drink enough water daily

Ample hydration helps flush toxins from the cells and eases constipation. You’ll drink more water during the day if you flavor it overnight with berries, or cucumbers.

7. You don’t move your body enough

It’s easy to become camped in front of one’s computer monitor, but exercise can improve your digestive health and reduce symptoms of constipation. It can also help reduce inflammation, of benefit in preventing inflammatory bowel conditions.

8. You don’t effectively manage the stress in your life

During periods of stress, blood and energy are diverted from your digestive system, interrupting the breakdown and absorption of nutrients, potentially leading to various gastrointestinal problems, such as indigestion, constipation, or diarrhea.

9. You ignore fermented foods

Pickles, sauerkraut, kefir and yogurt are a great way to feed the healthy bacteria in your body that help maintain your entire gastrointestinal tract.

10. You “Eat and Run” instead of “Eat and Rest”

The International Foundation for Gastrointestinal Disorders suggests avoiding physical activity after eating as it can interfere with the digestive process.

JUNE IS MEN’S HEALTH MONTH

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH: PRESSURE BUILDS TO DROP MASK MANDATE ON PLANES…
Wearing mask may go from symbol of responsibility to vulnerability…
For Many Workers, Change in Mask Policy Is Nightmare…
WHY MASK WARS MAY NEVER END…

MEN’S HEALTH EXPERT: Dr. Salvatore J. Giorgianni, Jr., PharmD. is Senior Science Adviser to the Men’s Health Network and a Past-Chair/Chair-Emeritus of the American Public Health Association and former Alumni Association Board Member of Columbia University School of Public Health.

June is Men’s Health Month, a time to encourage boys and men to take charge of their overall health by making healthier lifestyle and wellness choices. This year, as the country is slowly beginning to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is crucial that men keep up a healthy regime by getting regular checkups and ensuring that their healthcare choices account for the risks associated with their age, ethnicity, family history, and lifestyle.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in the United States, men on average die five years earlier than women and at higher rates from three leading causes of death—heart disease, cancer, and unintentional injuries. Additionally, nearly 15 percent of men aged 18 and over are in fair or poor health.

This year, in support of Men’s Health Month, the HHS Office of Minority Health (OMH) will focus on promoting the Six Plays for Men’s Health to remind men and boys that they can improve their health by seeking medical advice and taking other important steps, such as making healthy food choices, staying active, quitting smoking, getting regular checkups, taking care of their mental health, and being #VaccineReady—which includes getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Anyone can text their zip code to 438829 to get vaccination locations near them. For vaccine information in Spanish, text your zip code to 822862.

On June 18, OMH will join the Men’s Health Network to celebrate Wear Blue Day as part of the year-round Wear BLUE awareness campaign to raise awareness for education about men’s health.

Visit our Men’s Health Month webpage, available in English and Spanish, to learn more about the Six Plays for Men’s Health, and access shareable graphics and social media messaging as well as other men’s health-related resources.

BIO: Spanning a 40+ year career as a practicing clinical pharmacist, he is an advocate for better health services and resources to enhance the health of boys and men. He has held faculty appointments at both Columbia University and Belmont University and has authored over seventy peer reviewed and general media articles in healthcare and health policy.
