Along with the blessings from Allah Almighty, Ramadan brings one more thing as well. That is disturbed stomach, heartburn, and lethargy. In this article, we will discuss a few natural ways to cater to these problems so we can gather more absolution in peace.
Ramadan is here and it is that time of the year when our Muslim friends fast for a month and feast at the break of dawn and dusk. This practice doesn’t only test mental and physical endurance it also helps cultivate empathy and brings discipline to life. However, one can’t deny that one month’s Roza is difficult and takes a toll on health. We will discuss a few natural ways to avoid stress upset stomach problems.
Acid reflux, bloating, and other digestive issues are very common during Ramadan due to the fasting routine. Not eating for a long time doesn’t help the case but there are still a few tips that one can keep in mind during Ramadan to keep acidity at bay. It is difficult and may not have miraculous results but these tips will definitely help to improve your digestive health during Ramzan fasting.
The following are common symptoms of a nervous stomach
- Vomiting or diarrhea caused by an upset stomach.
- Stomach cramps.
- Loss of appetite.
- Painful gas.
- Butterflies in your stress upset stomach.
- Increased need for the bathroom.
Whether your gastric pain is diagnosed as non-ulcer dyspepsia or due to a more specific cause, making some simple lifestyle changes can lower your risk of experiencing gastric pain symptoms:
Eat smaller but more frequent meals. If you often suffer from indigestion, have five to six smaller meals a day, rather than three square meals.
Eat on time and avoid skipping meals. This will accustom your stomach to release its gastric juices only during mealtimes and not erratically.
Consume less irritating foods. Cutting down on spicy, acidic, fried, or fatty foods helps reduce gastric symptoms and allows your stomach to heal.
Drink alcohol in moderation. Excessive amounts of alcohol may weaken your stomach’s protective lining, making you more susceptible to ulcers.
Quit smoking. Smoking increases the production of stomach acid, slows down healing, and increases your risk of getting stomach cancer.
Better manage your stress. High stress increases the production of gastric juices in your stomach. Exercise regularly and adopt relaxation activities such as yoga to keep your stress in check.
