3 signs of digestive disruptions

3 signs of digestive disruptions

Posted by

Feel like a balloon? If you’ve been living with digestive upsets for a while, you might think it’s normal. It might be common, but it’s not ideal.  Digestive upsets can be a sign of more serious issues.  Ignore the warnings and it might not simply disappear. Supporting the digestive system starts with understanding what’s going on. Herbal medicines may ease discomfort and support a healthy digestive system and help you get back to normal. Here are 3 signs your stomach needs support:

1. Wind

We all do it and although it can be pretty hilarious when it’s your baby experiencing wind at an inappropriate moment, it’s less hilarious when it’s you. Wind is completely normal, unless you’re experiencing it in large quantities, very often. This is usually a sign the digestive system needs support. It could be the food you’ve eaten isn’t digested, intolerance to the type of food eaten or bacterial fermentation build up.

 2. Bloating

Ever feel like you’re going to explode?  Need to loosen your belt, unzip the jeans or pop that uncomfortable feeling full of air? Bloating can be triggered by overeating, over-indulgence, eating high-fibre foods or bacterial imbalances in the gut. It can also be linked to fluid retention. Bloating is uncomfortable and unnecessary.

 3. Cramping

If you often experience digestive cramping and pain, it’s important to get a proper diagnosis. Cramping may happen when your digestive system or abdominal muscle goes into spasm or when wind gets trapped and can’t get out.  Cramp pain can be sharp or dull, brief or come and go in waves or be constant.
