Fasting alone cannot solve your stomach problems

Fasting alone cannot solve your stomach problems

May 12, 2023

You may have noticed that parts of the internet have caught fasting fever if you spend a lot of time online. Posts on social media and blogs proclaim the merits of different diet routines and other intermittent fasting methods. These methods involve going without calories for an extended period—anywhere from 12 hours to several days. 

Despite its recent popularity, fasting is a centuries old practice that plays an important role in many cultures and religions. Fasting has been shown to have a variety of health benefits, ranging from increased weight loss to improved brain function.

Issues that may arise due to fasting

The advantages of fasting for weight loss are making it more and more popular. How safe are they, though? Do they not have any side effects on your health? 

You have to be aware of the body’s response to fasting (despite the benefits). Fasting periods can be difficult if you are used to eating breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks in between. As a result, fasting can disrupt sleep. Fasting can also cause heartburn. The smell of food or even thinking about it during a fast can cause the brain to tell the stomach to produce more acid, resulting in heartburn. 

Here are some home remedies for heartburn to help you deal with it:

1.Eat a ripe banana

A banana's high potassium content makes it an alkaline food. According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, this may help to counteract the stomach acid that is irritating your digestive tract. Unripe bananas, on the other side, are less alkaline, contain more starch, and may cause acid reflux in some people. So ensure that you choose a ripe banana.

Melons, cauliflower, fennel, and nuts are other alkaline foods that may help with heartburn.

2. Drinking Jeera water

Drinking jeera water on a regular basis benefits a healthy digestive system, which in turn keeps the overall body functioning properly. Jeera water benefits in the breakdown of complex nutrients such as proteins, fat, and sugar, keeping your gut healthy and preventing digestive issues such as indigestion, gas and acidity. 

3. Exercise regularly 

Everyone knows working out benefits the body in maintaining weight and keeping the body healthy. If the weight around the belly is not kept in check, it could lead to frequent chances of acid reflux and heartburn. Benefits of working out are multiple. One of them being keeping gastric issues like acidity and heartburn in check. 

4. Eating fiber rich diet

Fiber is a healthy substance that everyone should consume. Fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and legumes are all fiber-rich foods that aid digestion.

While home remedies are an excellent alternative solution to gastric issues like acidity and heartburn, they may occasionally fail to address the issue. The Gas-O-Fast 3 in 1 solution is a sure way to deal with acidity symptoms. Its all-natural ayurvedic formula provides immediate relief from acidity, gas, and indigestion.
