Physical Care

Walk as much as possible. Walking is excellent stimulation, helping to "stir" the contents of the intestine and eliminate the air it contains. Do deep breathing exercises. This allows the diaphragm (the muscle that makes us breathe) to give the abdomen a massage. Watch your spine. A blocked lumbar vertebra, a disc problem, a shock to coccyx can all cause intestinal problems.

Nutricional Care

Eat fiber-rich vegetables and fruits. Figs are great to activate a lazy intestine. If you are constipated, it may be useful to alternate hot and cold, e.g. have a cup of coffee after eating a sherbet. Certain foods ferment in the intestine: beans, peas, cabbage, chickpeas, onions, artichokes, mushrooms, leek. It's best to eat them cooked (either steamed or boiled), and changing the water once in the course of cooking. Chew them thoroughly, because the enzymes in our saliva make foods easier to digest. Overripe cheeses are candidates for fermentation. Pesticides can irritate the intestines; eat organic when possible. In women, the intestines react differently at different times in the hormonal cycle. Women are more sensitive to certain foods before their period or during menopause.

Psychological Care

Slow down and enjoy the moments. Learn to rest and relax. Put on some music, lie down, relax your muscles, and let the music seed into you. Try not to imagine the worst possible scenarios. Think about yourself instead. Learn to speak more slowly, letting other people talk.
