Lighten your digestion
If you can't skip family meals, try cunning by compensating on others.
Start by relieving your digestive system by offering it easy-to-digest combinations: raw food, vegetable juices, meals that include protein OR starches, but not both at the same time, and, of course, don't forget to eat vegetables at every meal.
In order not to “drown” your digestive enzymes and tire your organs, remember to drink pure, low-mineralized water outside meals.
In case of difficult digestion, get help from digestive plants
Some plants are true friends of difficult digestions : tarragon, basil or ginger, slipped into your culinary preparations, will not only enhance the taste, but will also help you digest better; good reasons not to deprive yourself of it.
Although fruit is not recommended at the end of a meal, pineapple, thanks to its high content of enzymes, lightens the work of your digestive organs.
If despite this your digestion barely, you can boost it with herbal teas, not to drink immediately after the meal (same reason as for water…). Consume infusions of peppermint, fennel seeds, chamomile or even ginger. The juice of a lemon in a glass of hot water can save you the day in case of mixtures, chocolate overdose or excessive drinking.
