Gut Feelings: Eight Steps to Better Digestion

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Poor digestion can put a cramp in anyone’s style. But sometimes it’s tough to know what might be causing the problem. Here’s a quick way to make sense of bad gut feelings, along with some steps you can take to improve your digestive health.

Your gut is your guardian

Your gut is a bit like a watchdog. It’s a tough and loyal guardian, and very smart.

Its job is to welcome healthy nutrients and life-giving water, while protecting you from various toxins and irritants that may try to sneak in alongside them.
Most of the time, your gut has great judgement. But occasionally, it’s a bit hasty. Every now and then, it overreacts. And sometimes, it’s just not strong enough to fend off the “bad guys.”

What kind of bad guys are we talking about? Well...there are dozens. You can learn more about them in this in-depth article. But in the meantime:

too many over-the-counter or prescription drugs
too much sugar or refined carbohydrates
too much alcohol
“bad” bacteria
parasites, yeast
stress (acute & chronic)
environmental contaminants.
When your gut hurts

Any of these can irritants can lead to bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea.

If you’re suffering from symptoms like these, it means your “enemies” are too strong. Your guardian has been overpowered and simply can’t protect you any more.

Symptoms of poor gut health can also show up outside the gut.

Have you ever been bothered by unexplained headaches, joint pain, fibromyalgia, skin problems, sleep disturbances, or fatigue? Any of these might be due to poor gut health.
The good news is that with the right nutrition, you can strengthen your gut’s defences and provide a stronger barrier. Not only will your gut be happier, but you’ll also enjoy better overall health.

Eight easy steps to a happier gut

It may be tempting simply to mask your symptoms with medications like over-the-counter antacids or prescription drugs.

But soothing the symptoms won’t make your underlying problem go away, and may actually make things worse.

Instead, try these simple nutritional strategies. Followed with a bit of care, they can help you figure out the source and treat it at the same time.

Eat when hungry, stop when satisfied. Believe it or not, this simple rule can save you countless hours of misery (and might help you lose unwanted pounds).
Eat slowly. Chewing is important for enzyme release and breaking food into particles that the gut can manage.
Eliminate any foods or drinks that bother you. Aren’t sure what those are? Try an elimination diet to find out. Common culprits include sugar alcohols, refined grains, MSG, and dairy products.
Add real food. Fruits, vegetables, beans, tea, and coffee are good sources of gut-strengthening flavonoids. Beans, peas, whole grains, nuts, seed, fruits are high in fibre, which helps to ensure regular elimination of toxins.
Balance your bacteria. Good bacteria strengthen the intestinal barrier. Choose 1-2 probiotic/prebiotic rich foods or drinks and eat them often. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Recover well. Sleep, stress management (like meditation or yoga) and exercise are vital to help us control inflammation, which in turn can improve gut health. But remember that too much exercise is taxing on the body. And give your gut a break: avoid big meals before exercise.
Reduce your chemical burden. Choose organic when you can, try not to heat foods in plastic containers, avoid food colorings and fish high in mercury.
Supplement wisely. A few options to consider include glutamine, digestive enzyme supplements, Vitamin D, Omega-3s, iron, turmeric. But be sure to address the underlying problem first. You can ask me doubts, privately

Dear friend in a child that young testes do travel up and down and many a times you may find the scrotal sac empty It's important not to confuse undescended testicles with "retractile" testicles. After 6 months of age, a male child has a reflex that temporarily pulls the testicles up to protect them when he's cold or frightened. These testicles are in the scrotum at other times and don't need treatment. Only testicles that are truly undescended need treatment. His pain abdomen needs investigation to find the cause, may be the testes are not the reason for it, I will suggest you please visit a pediatric surgeon or a surgeon, yes ultrasound would help to rule out many possibilities, the child may need further investigations as well, but please do not be alarmed with retracting testes.

Ways To Deal With Anal Fissures!

MBBS, MD - Medicine, ACLS, POST GRADUATE COURSE IN RHEUMATOLOGY
General Physician, Jaipur
Ways To Deal With Anal Fissures!

An anal fissure refers to a tiny tear occurring in the anus's lining. This cut may occur when you pass hard stools during bowel movement. The fissures can cause pain which may be severe. This condition is most commonly seen in children and infants, though it can affect people of all ages.

Symptoms of anal fissures

The common signs and symptoms of anal fissure include:

  • A visible cut or tear in the skin around anus
  • A small lump of skin present next to the tear
  • Sharp and stabbing pain in the anal area along with itching during bowel movement
  • Spots of blood visible on stools

What causes an anal fissure?

Other than chronic constipation and diarrhea other common causes of anal fissure are:

  • Crohn's disease
  • Straining during labor
  • Anal sphincter muscles that are overly tight

What are the probable ways of dealing with anal fissures?

A digital rectal exam can be performed to diagnose the anal fissure. Anal fissures usually don't require surgery and can be treated at home by:

  • Taking stool softeners to avoid cuts in the anus
  • Increasing the consumption of fibrous foods including raw fruits and vegetables
  • Taking warm baths which will help relax the anal muscles, relieve irritation and increase the flow of blood to the anorectal area
  • Applying ointments and pain relievers to the anus to reduce the discomfort and promote healing
  • If you are overweight, it is important that you make can effort to reduce the same

Botox injections may also prevent spasms in the anus by paralyzing the muscle temporarily. If anal fissures fail to respond to any of the treatments you have to undergo an anal sphincterotomy. This surgical procedure involves making a small dissection in the anal sphincter which helps to relax the muscle.

Hello, I can understand your concern. Black color stools are seen in upper gastrointestinal bleeding but not only in that condition. If you are on iron supplementation your stool may be black color, if you have taken some fruits or vegetables also black color stools may be seen. Ugi bleeding is commonly seen in chronic liver disease patients. Kindly observe your stool for another two days, avoid spicy foods, eat vegetables if not improving kindly consult a physician. If you are taking iron supplement kindly ignore black stools. Hope this helps.

Role of Digestive Fire or Agni in Ayurveda

BAMS
Ayurveda, Navi Mumbai
Role of Digestive Fire or Agni in Ayurveda

Ayurveda talks of five elements in our body. To be healthy, these five elements must be well balanced. These five elements are earth, fire, water, air and ether. Each of these elements have their own characteristics and are responsible for different bodily functions.

While the earth elements represent stability and look after parts of our body, such as the bones, teeth, cells and tissue; the fire elements represent transformation of energy and are responsible for the functioning of the digestive system, nervous reactions and thought processes.

The air elements characterize change and are largely responsible for the circulatory system and temperature regulation. Similarly, air and ether have their own characteristics and responsibilities.

The fire element is also known as agni. There are 13 types of agni in the body. The digestive agni is seated in the lower part of the stomach and small intestine and is made up of various acids and enzymes.  This agni is responsible for determining each person’s dietary needs, the absorption of nutrients and burning of waste materials. Thus, a strong agni enables us to digest our food well while a weak agni leads to problems like indigestion and the creation of toxins. According to Ayurveda, the buildup of these toxins is responsible for most diseases.  At the same time, an overactive agni can also be detrimental to your health. In such cases, instead of absorbing nutrients, the digestive system produces excessive heat that burns them.

A weak agni is most likely to be caused by a number of reasons. Some of these factors are such that you might not ever think twice about such as:

  1. Eating the same type of food repetitively

  2. Eating food out of sync with your constitution

  3. Overeating

  4. Eating tasteless food

  5. Irregular meal timing

  6. Drinking too much water with your meals

  7. Not eating when hungry

  8. Not maintaining a regular sleep schedule and

  9. Absence of exercise

Changing the above habits can immediately improve your agni and in turn your digestive system and overall health. Apart from this there are also a few ayurvedic ways to improve your agni. These are:

  1. Adding pungent spices like cumin and chilli to meals

  2. Drinking ginger tea

  3. Eating more small meals at frequent intervals rather than a few large meals.

  4. Eating pitta pacifying food such as ripe, juicy fruits, rice and butter.

  5. Include herbs that enhance the functioning of agni, such as black pepper, cinnamon, aloe vera and fennel seeds in your diet. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.
