Are you experiencing gas, bloating, abdominal pain, belching or fatigue after meals? If so, you are not alone. Poor digestive health is on the rise, but you can do something about it with our step-by-step guide to better digestion!
Are you one of the 70 million Americans suffering from digestive diseases, like Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), ulcerative colitis, constipation and peptic ulcers?
Unfortunately, good digestive health appears to be on the decline and what’s worse is that poor digestive health affects your overall well-being.
In fact, poor digestive health means your body cannot get the nutrients it needs for strong immunity and brain health. This means you may experience more symptoms of fatigue, illness, memory issues or depression.
While mainstream medicine would have us rushing off to get prescription drugs, Body Ecology has an alternative solution: healing your digestion.
You see, the good news is that recovering good digestive health is possible!
Following a healthy Body Ecology diet is key to healing your digestive tract. But there are some simple steps you can take each time you sit down for a meal that will go a long way to making you feel your best.
Changing your diet can feel challenging at first, so this step-by-step guide is not about changing the food you eat. For now, we recommend that you simply start where you are and change a few habits around mealtime.
The simple fact is that slowing down helps you digest better because to digest well, your body needs to be in parasympathetic (also called “rest and digest”) nervous system mode.2 This means you have to feel rested and calm. Unfortunately, if you rush around in an over-busy life, your body tends to stay in sympathetic (also called “fight or flight”) nervous system mode. This means that your ability to digest is shut down.
If you eat on the run or when you are stressed, your body is simply unable to digest. Do this too often and you begin to damage your digestive health and overall well-being.

In fact, improperly chewed food can set the stage for a poorly digested meal throughout your entire digestive tract. That means hours of potential abdominal pain or low energy.
Chew your food as much as possible before swallowing and the rest of your digestive tract will thank you.
Giving your food your full attention can literally change your whole experience with eating. You may find that you feel satisfied earlier and eat less, that you enjoy your food more and that you are able to focus on chewing your food thoroughly. Each of these benefits lead to better digestion.
