Healthy bowel function: how does normal poop look like?
What are the different types of poop?
Why celebrating life with food is important for our health
Especially in the darkest months of the year, there seems to be an endless amount of celebrations.
No matter what is always a common theme: food is the main attraction! In fact, the focus society currently places on food has caused us to associate certain foods with holidays, past events and special times. When we sink our teeth into such foods, it can bring back memories we hold close and take us back to a time we enjoyed. Food is much more powerful than we think!
From catching up for coffee, relaxing over brunch, indulging in a long lunch or bonding at a BBQ, it’s hard to imagine getting together without the company of food. Food is something we all have in common, we all must eat, most of us find food pleasurable and trying new foods or cafes is a new experience we can share with others.
Symptoms and natural treatments of indigestionIndigestion or heartburn can happen when your body has trouble digesting food. Anyone can get it on occasion, or it can be an ongoing problem. Heartburn is especially prominent in December with so many holidays accompanied with delicious foods, that prompt us to overindulge.
While acid reflux is a common phenomenon, not all symptoms of it, are very obvious.
When heartburn happens, for instance due to smoking, alcohol, medication, carbonated drinks or some foods that are difficult to process (spices, fats, acids, fiber) may cause a valve-like stomach muscle to loosen, allowing stomach acid to backwash into the esophagus. This exposes sensitive tissue in the chest to stomach acids, causing painful symptoms.
Common symptoms of reflux are a burning feeling in your chest or stomach, burping, bloating, gurgling stomach, acid reflux, heartburn, nausea or even vomiting.
Problems in your GI tract or other health issues also can cause indigestion. These include:
- acid reflux, gastroesophageal reflux (GER), or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD): A reaction to food and drink where contents come back up from your stomach. The acid can come up into your esophagus, the tube-like organ connecting your mouth and stomach. Acid reflux also can produce vomiting. This condition causes heartburn because of the high acid contents.
- irritable bowel syndrome: a disorder that affects your intestines. Symptoms include stomach pain, bloating, gas, constipation, and diarrhea.
- infection: a bacterial infection from Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) can cause indigestion.
- gastroparesis: A condition that affects digestion. If muscles in your GI tract stop working, your body slows down or stops the movement of food. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, bloating, and acid reflux.
- ulcer: A sore on the lining of your stomach (peptic ulcer), small intestine, or esophagus.
- gastritis: Inflammation of your stomach lining.
- stomach cancer: This is a rare condition, but indigestion can be one of its signs.
Health from a pineapple: combat inflammation with bromelainPineapples are one of the most well-loved tropical fruits around the world. But if you're a constant surfer of the web, you've probably come across an article or two saying that pineapples "eat you right back." And the culprit? It's none other than enzyme bromelain.
Aside from its popularity because of this viral information, bromelain has managed to penetrate the medical world because of the impressive health benefits it offers. If you're interested or curious on why bromelain is now getting unvaried attention, continue reading and know more about this pineapple product.
What is the relationship between religion and food?
In the past few weeks two different incidents made me stop and pause to think how much eating or not eating meat is starting to divide our society.
A vegan lifestyle, which once was a complete rarity in our country, seems to have become popular overnight among the hip and happening crowd.
This is in stark contrast with the general public, which is still very much in love with their steak and bacon.
A good example of that contrast was shown in the way the general public as well as vegans responded to the December edition of Allerhande, a popular supermarket magazine. People who like to celebrate Christmas in a traditional way, lamented the absence of classic meat-heavy recipes, while vegans rejoiced about the multitude of creative vegan recipes.
Because the complaints as well as the compliments were so vocal and heart-felt, it struck me how much veganism or refusal of it has almost become a religion of its own.
The loud complaints were nothing compared to the antisemitic vitriol that was spewn when the popular Palestinian vlogger Nas (Daily) decided to make an episode about Tel Aviv, the vegan capital of the world.
All this made me curious about the relation between religion and food laws and more specifically islamic and jewish food laws as well as to the reasons why even non-religious people get so worked up about food guidelines they are living by.
A vegan life
Over the past decades, a vegetarian life-style has become much more common and accepted than say just 25 years ago, when it was difficult to eat a satisfying meal away from home.
With the advent of wider vegetarian options, more and more people jump straight from a non-vegetarian lifestyle into veganism.
Indigestion and fatsAfter having been vilified for years as useful but tasty nutrient, fats have been embraced again. Contrary to carbohydrates, fats are not just an energy source, but building blocks for the entire body and of utmost importance for immunity and a proper working brains.
Irritable bowel syndrome
Many of us suffer silently from chronic bowel pain. Contrary to many other types of pain, we rarely go and see a doctor for treatment, unless the discomfort is intolerablen as with Crohn's disease, thinking there is not much that can be done.
While it is true there are few useful drugs that help with bowel pain, diet, lifestyle changes and supplements can and do help a great deal. Pinpointing what food exactly aggravates your symptoms is very important and calls for the so-called elimination diet in which you make a list of foods that worsen your symptoms.
