Your digestive system is a remarkable mechanism that allows you to eat whatever food you want whenever you want it. Chances are that you hardly ever give it much thought. Your system is just available to take handle whatever food you eat. Food is digested so that the nutrition it contains can be utilised by your metabolism to provide nourishment.
Take care of your system. On the one hand, you can tone up your digestion by eating plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain and high fibre products. Such foods will provide roughage that will keep your digestion working well.
However, healthy as this may appear, you also need to ensure that you take in plenty of liquids. This should include between 6 and 8 glasses of water each day. Fluids are important. The fluid content of your food could also be made up of soups or juices, which will also provide nourishment, apart from adding to the liquids you consume.
Ultimately, it is these liquids and soft foods that will act like a balm on your digestion and keep it in good order. Of course, you may be tempted to go off the rails with your favourite foods once in a way. But do try to recall any episode of digestive distress you may have had and the discomfort that resulted.
Listen to your body. Remember that the symptoms you experienced were simply your body's way of telling you that all was not well and the best thing you could do would be to ease up instead of abusing your system. The food you choose to eat makes all the difference.
So that is just what you must do go easy on your digestion. In the long run, it will pay off to keep your food light. For your digestion system to work and function properly it needs to get rid of toxins that build up over time.
One of the most successful ways of cleansing and kick-starting your health is by slowing down your digestive system to a level that it can repair itself. The best way to do this is to do a juice fast.
As you are consuming nothing but liquids the body has time to slow down and to deposit all the bad toxins and bacteria from the body. Not only have that, but the juice fast is beneficial for energy gain as you stop eating foods that drain your energy such as bread, chocolate etc. Take care of your digestive system and it will take care of you. Abuse it and you will live to regret it the choice is yours!!
