3. Know the foods that can help you
Certain foods you eat can throw off your digestion. Refined carbs, sugary and fried things, are often to blame. If you’ve been eating those foods often, try moving to more beneficial foods to help your digestion.
Probiotic foods are a great choice because they replenish your gut with the good bacteria it needs for healthy digestion and immunity. Yogurt is a popular choice, though if you’d rather stay dairy-free, you can have kimchi, pickled veggies, tempeh, sauerkraut, kefir, natto, or miso.
More fiber is also essential. In particular, insoluble fiber will help sweep your digestive system clean. If you’d like to practice good bowel cleansing techniques regularly, choose prebiotic fibers from onions, garlic, leeks, and jicama. And whatever you eat, make sure you chew your food more thoroughly, which helps your stomach digest it better.
