Try adding these foods to your diet.

This short list of foods should leave you feeling light and help your digestive system run smoothly.

  1. Pears are a great source of fiber, which helps to soften and add weight to stool, moving it through the digestive tract.  Pears also contain sorbitol, a sugar that attracts water into the intestines, further softening your stool.
  2. Yogurt helps digestion, improves the immune system and fights off bacterial infections. Within our stomach lining is a healthy bacteria known as probiotics.  Yogurt is an excellent and delicious external probiotics source that aid in digestion and helps in keeping you regular. This is great for anytime of the day.  I’ve been known to eat it a few times a day.
  3. Ginger is part of the carminatives family; a group of herbs that helps to soothe the digestive track.  It can aid digestion as well as relieve upset stomach, nausea and vomiting.  I can’t say enough good things about ginger.  Other herbs in the carminative family include cinnamon, sage and thyme.

These should keep your stomach healthy and your appetite satisfied.  When these are added regularly there should be few problems.  And they taste good.  Ginger tea is a great addition to the diet as well.

Some just accept a sensitive stomach as par for the course.  But on my site you will see there really are some simple solutions to this problem.  Sometimes it’s just a matter of changing up what and when or how much we eat. I hope you’ll find a solution to your food sensitivities here. Please drop me a note below.

Watch What You Eat

Having a sensitive stomach simply means we need to be considerate of our stomachs ability and work with it.  The friendly bacteria in our guts help to digest foods that our bodies have trouble breaking down.  These friendly bacteria also produce gas.  This is usually as they digest food in the large intestines.  Sometimes this leads to an upset stomach or pain after a meal.

Listed here are some foods likely to cause this problem:

•Asparagus, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, and other vegetables
•Beans and lentils
•Lactose, the natural sugar found in milk
•Corn, pasta, potatoes, and other foods rich in starch
•Fruits, oat bran, peas, and other foods high in soluble fiber, which gets digested in your large intestine
•Whole grains, such as brown rice, oatmeal, and whole wheat
•Fructose, a natural sugar found in artichokes, onions, pears, wheat, and some soft drinks
•Sorbitol, the artificial sweetener

Yes, these are all healthy foods, but don’t let that confuse you.  Just choose what works for you.  Most likely you don’t have to severely restrict your diet.  It may be that only a few of these cause you problems.  And remember that some people have problems digesting milk or milk products.   But others do not.   Also keep in mind that food sensitivities may also change over time.
