Why being more physically active can improve your stomach problems

Complementary Healing, Digestive Wellness

If you or someone that you know seemed to complain of stomach ailments, such as wind, gastric, indigestion, acid reflux, etc, check the physical activity levels.


From my personal experience, years ago I used to suffer from stomach spasms, pain and discomfort. When I combined higher intake of fiber, drink more water with exercise, I find the instances of pain is dramatically reduced. Even when I got back to my old eating habits, the pain outbreaks were nowhere near as frequent as the time when I was not exercising.



Even if we take the best supplements, take lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and/or medication to cure or improve our existing stomach condition, if we do not exercise, things will not get moving along the digestive track. And whatever that goes not get moving may be get stuck along the intestine walls…. and eventually well, sort of just rot there.


And whatever that rots triggers bacteria reaction, produces acid with painful side effects, together with constantly passing gas.


If you have been constantly going to the doctor for treatment of supposedly common stomach condition, the next time you see your doctor, please ask him/her if it is safe for you to begin an exercise program (doctor’s confirmation is especially required if you have pre-existing medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure or heart condition).


You need not be an exercise freak- perhaps you can start by taking morning or evening brisk walks 2 or 3 times a week. When doing the walking, do not take your own sweet ‘shopping’ or ‘sightseeing’ speed. In order to see results, you need to do fast paced walking to raise your heartbeat. If you can do some jogging or running, it will be better. Followed by stretching- I find the yoga sun salutation series to be good for stretching the body and improving circulation- you can do that after walking/jogging.


After about a week or two of doing that, your condition would likely improve. The idea is to improve your blood circulation so that things get moving more efficiently.

Aside from that, for those suffering from digestive problem, please read my past article series on tummy health and avoid drinking cold water. I have explained in the past article while drinking cold water is bad for you.


Please also remember to go for checkup if your condition does not seem to improve. I’ve looked at some past report on the cancer survival rate in Britain (for year 2000) and was surprised to see that the overall survival rate for stomach cancers for all ages is only slightly better than lung cancer. That is why we always need to watch the diet we are taking to ensure adequate fiber, drink more water, minimize processed/fast food and exercise as often as we can.
