I have struggled with IBS and leaky gut for the last 5 years, it is so much better than it used to be, I honestly used to look pregnant constantly.
Frankly bloating isn’t sexy, in fact some may have clicked off this post to look at pretty pictures of smoothies but stay with me. I think it’s a woman’s right to feel her best. I have picked up a few tricks on the way to beat that bloated feeling and aid proper digestion.
My cupboard full of tricks include:
Warm water and lemon
This starts my day and it helps alkalise the body, cleanse the system and fire up my digestion for breaky
1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar
When my digestion feels off, I knock back a tbsp of apple cider vinegar. This is a fermented vinegar so it is loaded with enzymes that help break down the food in your belly. For those with terrible digestion try taking it before each meal.
Honestly I know this sounds silly but give your belly a massage. It helps move everything through. Work in a clock wise direction and it will help relieve bloating.
You can often get bloated while stressed, belly breathing helps you calm your nervous system down and relax your muscles. Take 5 long inhales and exhales, allow your belly to rise and fall and see how much better you feel after.
If you are constipated this is a great natural way to help relieve this, it also helps you recover posts exercise and aid a super sleep. Pop back a pill before bed and you will feel great in the morning.
